first_imgCOVID-19 restrictions, which are now being phased out in some places, have caused logistical disruptions along the supply chain by limiting mobility in an effort to contain the spread of the coronavirus, which has infected more than 46,000 people nationwide.The maritime highway, which has run since 2015, is a subsidized cargo program that to distribute staple goods and major consumer items — including rice, sugar, flour, cooking oil and eggs — as well as steel and cement to remote regions of the archipelago.It aims to reduce the price disparity across the country’s many islands, which is generally caused by costly logistics.Seven of the 26 maritime highway routes are operated by private shipping companies, while the majority of the rest are run by state-owned shipping company Pelayaran Nasional Indonesia (Pelni). The routes connect major cities with more remote areas, including Tanjung Perak in East Java and Timika, Papua. Indonesian Logistics Association (ALI) chairman Zady Ilham Masita slammed the program as “ineffective”, as it had not boosted the sea freight volume, which had decreased by 50 percent from normal times since the pandemic swept the country in March.“There has been no significant impact of the program as our sea shipment volume has been tanking since the pandemic,” he told The Jakarta Post on Tuesday via text messages.The association in April reported an overall decline in business performance of more than 50 percent since the COVID-19 pandemic hit the country, while the logistics volume had decreased by up to 70 percent from normal times.The ministry’s sea traffic director, Wisnu Handoko, claimed that the ships were filled with supplies on various routes.“The departing ships’ load factors are above the average around 70 percent [of capacity] with several routes reaching 95 percent,” he said in a press statement.Indonesian National Shipowners Association (INSA) reported in early May that container ship revenue had fallen by 10 to 25 percent from normal levels. Likewise, the revenue of bulk carriers – tankers, tugs and barges – dropped by 25 to 50 percent. The decline is partially due to the pandemic’s severe impact on the oil and gas industry, which is one of the country’s major users of sea transportation services.INSA chairperson Carmelita Hartoto took a more positive stance on the program, stating that shipping companies were ready to expand their collaboration with the government on the program in the future.“We are grateful that logistics shipments can still operate in line with schedules despite the pandemic. Private shipping lines are also ready to work together with the government, just like we’ve done before,” Carmelita told the Post on Tuesday.However, she was of the view that the program still struggled with issues such as route monopolies as well as low cargo loads when returning from destination, particularly in the easternmost provinces.Topics : The Transportation Ministry is relying on a long-running sea transportation program – the maritime highway – to support logistics in the country amid disruption induced by the COVID-19 pandemic.Transportation Minister Budi Karya Sumadi on Sunday stated that optimizing the maritime highway, a flagship program in President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo’s first term in office, was part of the government’s efforts to ensure the movement of goods during the health crisis.“The maritime highway is expected to secure supply logistics all across Indonesia during the pandemic,” Budi said according to a press release. “To optimize the maritime highway program, all stakeholders need to take part to maximize the carrying capacity of the ships and reduce price disparity [among islands].”last_img read more

Nick Greenwood, former manager of the £2.2bn (€2.5bn) Berkshire Pension Fund, died earlier this month.He ran the Berkshire fund – part of the UK’s Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) – for 11 years before leaving last year after it became part of the Local Pensions Partnership.During his tenure at Berkshire, he implemented an innovative investment strategy involving allocations to a range of alternative asset classes such as farmland and emerging market infrastructure.In 2017, the pension fund bought a 20% stake in specialist UK alternatives boutique Gresham House and became the cornerstone investor for the asset manager’s flagship British Strategic Investment Fund, which targets UK infrastructure and housing. In 2016, it invested £15m in a fund aimed at directing institutional capital into the commercialisation of UK university research, known as the British Innovation Fund . In 2009, the scheme became the first in the LGPS system to hedge its longevity risk, sealing a deal with Swiss Re covering 11,000 pensioners.last_img read more

Kinnear defends work done on deals

September 21, 2020 | kzmwuuff | No Comments

first_img The Magpies are yet to make a summer signing except for teenager Olivier Kemen from Metz, with the start of the new Barclays Premier League season just two weeks away. Kinnear is at the forefront of player acquisition following his appointment by owner Mike Ashley in June. “I’m well aware that everyone is concerned (about the lack of transfers) and rightly so, but I’m not dragging my heels in any manner,” he added. “I’m being sensible about the budget I have got and am going to spend it as wisely as I can – I keep (manager) Alan (Pardew) well informed and have regular meetings. “We sit down on a regular basis and talk about the type of players we want, the best type of players for the Newcastle fans.” Lyon striker Bafetimbi Gomis is believed to be close to a move to St James’ Park but a deal is yet to be announced and Kinnear admits it is becoming difficult to land transfer targets. “We are fighting hard,” he told Sky Sports News. “There are two or three of us (clubs) all seemingly to be wrapped around the same players and, as I have said to Mike, it is a serious battle that we need to win and we are very close to achieving that. “There are always extra add-ons, always an extra thing and always an extra problem and then there is always the problem of competition from other teams. “Whatever I have offered more or less goes public and of course that alerts other people that are interested, they tweak it and add a little bit more and we are in that sort of war at the moment. “I’m waiting for a nod, on which the goalposts have moved on numerous occasions, to bring in a couple of strikers.” Newcastle finished 16th last season and Kinnear’s appointment to work alongside Pardew was met by widespread criticism among the club’s supporters. The former Republic of Ireland international had an ill-fated spell in charge of the club in the 2008-09 season before his surprise return this summer. Newcastle director of football Joe Kinnear has said the club are fighting hard to add players to their squad and that he has not been dragging his heels in the transfer market.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

West Ham announce record profits

September 20, 2020 | kzmwuuff | No Comments

first_imgWest Ham have announced record pre-tax profits of over £10million – with joint-chairman David Sullivan stating he is “satisfied with the achievements” the club have made. In a statement issued on their official website West Ham announced their latest figures, with many showing an upturn in fortunes with Sullivan announcing over the weekend he is hoping he and co-owner David Gold can sell a 20 per cent stake in the club. “West Ham United are pleased to announce a record group profit before tax of £10.3m following a successful 2013/14 for the club both on and off the pitch,” the statement read. “This is a significant improvement on last year’s loss before tax of £3.5m. As the team overcame a difficult start to the season to finish 13th in the Barclays Premier League, the club increased revenues to an all-time high. Turnover was up to £114.8m compared to £89.8m the previous year, helped by the new broadcast deal and an increase in most other income sources. “The wage/turnover ratio also decreased to 55.6 per cent against 62.6 per cent last year, the lowest ratio since this was first calculated 15 years ago.” The turnover was up despite bringing in nine new faces in the summer, seven of which were permanent transfers, and Sullivan said in the statement that the board want to continue the improvements. “My board and I are satisfied with the achievements we have made in the 2013/14 season,” he said. “The highlights for us being retaining our Premier League status and reaching the semi-final of the Capital One Cup, signing an agreement to sell the Boleyn Ground in preparation for our move to the Olympic Stadium for the 2016/17 season, and our fantastic support despite our many injuries and therefore subsequent challenging performances on the pitch. “We continue to believe we will deliver both on and off the pitch by investing in the team, the brand and managing the business well.” Karren Brady, the club’s vice-chairman and the driving force behind the move to the Olympic Park, praised manager Sam Allardyce and the players, insisting the growth off the pitch goes hand in hand with success on it. “Through the hard work of a fantastic, dedicated, loyal and determined team both on and off the pitch the club has grown in size, revenue and in stature this season,” she said. “The management team off the pitch were able to capitalise and maximise on all the opportunities the manager and the team delivered on the pitch.” The West Ham hierarchy will no doubt be hoping to use the figures to tempt any potential investments into the club after Sullivan told the Sunday Telegraph that he and Gold were looking to raise £80m to help reduce debts. “We’ve no desire to give up the whole club,” Sullivan said. “But we’re still £110million in debt – albeit now £55million of that is to ourselves. So the third-party debt has been halved, but only because we’ve put the money in. “We lost £30million when we went down (to the Championship in 2011) and we made £10million on paper last year. What’s on paper is not cash-flow and we have to pay down the debt all the time and we have to be clear of bank debt when we move to the Olympic Stadium.” The Hammers sit sixth in the Barclays Premier League heading into the new year and just two points off the Champions League positions. The club have also unveiled their plans for their new Olympic Stadium home and agreed the sale of their current Upton Park site. Press Associationlast_img read more

England name unchanged 14 man squad

September 18, 2020 | kzmwuuff | No Comments

first_img(BBC) – England have named an unchanged 14-man squad for the first of their three Tests against Pakistan, which begins on Wednesday, August 5 at Old Trafford.It comprises the side who beat West Indies in the final Test at the same venue on Monday – plus Zak Crawley, Sam Curran and Mark Wood.Batsman Crawley was omitted for that game as England selected an extra seamer with Ben Stokes unable to bowl.The series will again be played in a secure ‘bio-bubble’ without spectators.Having been kept inside the ‘bubble’ for the duration of the West Indies series, which the hosts won 2-1, the England players were permitted a few days at home with their families but must return on Sunday, and will continue to have regular COVID-19 testing.Four reserves – James Bracey, Ben Foakes, Jack Leach and Dan Lawrence – will also report to the Manchester venue.National selector Ed Smith said: “After three Tests in quick succession against West Indies, we now turn to an equally condensed Test series against Pakistan, with 15 days of Test cricket scheduled in a three-week period.“County cricket now restarts on Saturday August 1. We want to have sufficient reserves inside the Test match ‘bubble’, but we may also want to give opportunities, where possible, for the reserves to play county cricket.“As we seek the best balance, England may make changes to the reserves during the series against Pakistan.”England squad for first Test: Joe Root (Yorkshire, capt.), James Anderson (Lancashire), Jofra Archer (Sussex), Dominic Bess (Somerset), Stuart Broad (Nottinghamshire), Rory Burns (Surrey), Jos Buttler (Lancashire, wkp.), Zak Crawley (Kent), Sam Curran (Surrey), Ollie Pope (Surrey), Dom Sibley (Warwickshire), Ben Stokes (Durham), Chris Woakes (Warwickshire), Mark Wood (Durham).Reserves: James Bracey (Gloucestershire), Ben Foakes (Surrey, wkp.), Dan Lawrence (Essex), Jack Leach (Somerset).last_img read more

White’s rant a black eye for USC

September 17, 2020 | kzmwuuff | No Comments

first_imgEuno Lee is a senior majoring in English literature. He is also the editor-in-chief of the Daily Trojan. His column, “Euno What Time It Is,” runs Tuesdays. Former USC running back LenDale White made headlines Saturday for tweeting inflammatory remarks about USC Athletic Director Pat Haden. According to White, who was on the sidelines for Saturday’s win over Colorado, when the former Tennessee Titans running back tried to enter the tunnel following the game he was escorted out of the Coliseum by security.White had been vocal on Twitter in his criticism of the USC coaching staff during the Trojans’ win over Arizona, but the retired NFL player told Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times that he and Haden had made amends following the Arizona game, which resulted in his visit to the Coliseum on Saturday. Upon being escorted out of the Coliseum after the Trojans’ victory over Colorado, however, White took to Twitter and blasted USC’s athletic director, calling Haden a “coward” and saying that “USC should fire [his] punk a–,” a tweet he later deleted. USC Sports Information Director Tim Tessalone denied Haden’s involvement in White’s removal from the tunnel, but White stood by his comments.My problem isn’t with the fact that White was escorted out; I’m sure whoever had White removed from the Coliseum tunnel has his or her reasons for not letting the controversial former tailback into the locker room, not the least of which were probably his various remarks about the team’s leadership in the previous week.My problem is with White’s tweet after he was kicked out, when he said, “…I’m truly embarrassed to b[sic] a #TROJAN I’ve done Wayy[sic] to[sic] much to b[sic] treated like that.” This tweet is still on White’s account, but the reasoning for insisting on this remains unclear. White gets a modest public relations boost and a fleeting wisp of relevance, only to probably sink into post-NFL obscurity once again.To be fair, the former red zone tailback amassed 52 rushing touchdowns in 541 carries during his time at USC (a pretty ridiculous stat, if you think about it), and did great things for some historically talented USC offenses. It only takes watching a tape of him bowl between the tackles and completely overwhelm defenders en route to pay dirt to make me long for the Pete Carroll era.But White’s exemplary play in his time at USC doesn’t give him leeway to start trashing the coaching staff one week and then expect to be welcomed into the locker room the next. It certainly doesn’t give him the right to play the victim and rail against the university that ultimately gave him the national-level exposure that landed him a job in the NFL in the first place.It’s this lack of self-awareness and sense of entitlement that can become a major problem with giving high-profile athletes a public platform. Instead of acting with grace and giving back to the university in a meaningful way, White insists on stirring up headlines and creating more drama for a football program that’s frankly had enough soap opera plotlines and negative ESPN headlines this season.A former player who calls for the current coach to be fired, as White did after the Arizona game and the Colorado game (both USC victories, I might add), has no place in that team’s locker room, no matter how many touchdowns he had. In a game where team chemistry and “buying in” is paramount, White seems unaware of the fact that his comments and outspokenness are the reason why he shouldn’t be allowed into USC’s locker room.LenDale White remains one of the finest running backs in USC’s storied tailback lineage. That will never change. What I hope will change is White’s attitude about his contributions to USC. Being “embarrassed” to be a Trojan should never be a sentiment expressed by a member of the Trojan Family, especially over such a minor personal slight. If anything, White’s boorish, self-pitying reaction to this situation is the greater embarrassment.last_img read more

first_imgFormer Wisconsin football defensive coordinator Dave Aranda’s first task as LSU’s defensive coordinator will be to prepare against his old team. He obviously will have quite an advantage when the Badgers take on the Tigers at Lambeau Field Sept. 3 thanks to the three years he spent on the sidelines in Madison.What he won’t have is a lot of film on whoever will be Wisconsin’s quarterback that night, simply because the next quarterback for UW will have little-to-no college experience at all. Currently, the only two quarterbacks on the roster are fifth-year seniors Bart Houston and Thad Armstrong, as well as redshirt freshman Alex Hornibrook.Football: UW defensive coordinator Dave Aranda leaves for LSUJust two days after the Wisconsin football team took down USC in the Holiday Bowl, defensive coordinator Dave Aranda decided Read…Currently, the 2016 Wisconsin recruiting class has one quarterback commit, Karé Lyles, a 6-foot-1, 215-pound pro-style passer from Arizona.The blame for the lack of depth at quarterback can be pointed at one man and one man only: Gary Andersen. Even though he only coached 27 games for Wisconsin, he managed to set the program back for this upcoming season by recruiting strictly dual-threat quarterbacks to fit his desired up-tempo, West Coast-style spread offense.Anyone who knows Wisconsin football is aware that’s not how the program operates. It’s smash-mouth, two-tight-end-and-a-fullback formations with the goal of running it down the opponent’s throat.Brazzoni: Victory over USC defines what Wisconsin football meant in 2015Coming into their Holiday Bowl showdown against USC, the Wisconsin football team had played two opponents that would be considered Read…In Paul Chryst, UW has the head coach who fits the identity of the program. Andersen not only didn’t give himself enough time to do it, but he brought in the wrong players and deserted them in a system not meant for them. By bailing for Oregon State (the Beavers went 2-10 in 2015, yikes) Andersen selfishly rerouted young men’s college plans and put an entire program in a predicament.The most glaring example is Tanner McEvoy. It’s a problem when the quarterback can’t throw the ball effectively, but Andersen was so hell-bent on having his guy start he gave McEvoy the nod to start the 2014 season (not to mention inflicting Joel Stave with the yips). That experiment lasted all of four and a half games, and McEvoy spent the 2015 season at wide receiver and safety.Then there’s Austin Kafentzis. He set records in his home state of Utah, but after getting outplayed by Hornibrook (a Chryst recruit) during spring camp, he transferred to Nevada. See ya.Finally, there’s D.J. Gillins. Gillins served as the third-string quarterback this season behind Stave and Houston, but was so discouraged with his lack of playing time he asked to move to wide receiver, where he saw some action on special teams. After Wisconsin’s Holiday Bowl win against USC, Gillins announced he was transferring with the intention of playing quarterback somewhere, and he disclosed on Jan. 11 he will be attending Pearl River Community College in Mississippi.Gillins’ decision is both confusing and unsettling. All signs indicated he’d compete with Houston for the starting gig in the fall. Now, he’s heading to community college, which brings us back to the original point: Who starts under center for the Badgers for the first game of the 2016 season?It’s a two horse race — Armstrong has strictly functioned on the sideline with a headset and signaling in plays and it’s highly unlikely Lyles will start as a true freshman.Hornibrook redshirted during his first season as a Badger, leaving Houston as the only potential starter with any previous collegiate experience. And as Chryst has to make his first big decision for the 2016 season, it will be interesting to see whether he names a starter during spring camp, like he did with Stave last season, or opens the job up for competition.Chryst recruited Houston when he was UW’s offensive coordinator and got Hornibrook to flip his commitment from Pittsburgh to Wisconsin when he took the job in Madison. He’s seen both guys go through developmental stages and get to the college level. Will he go with the (limited) experience of Houston, who Andersen once banished to backup punter? Houston impressed on the road against Illinois this season when he entered for a concussed Stave. He completed 22 of 33 passes for 232 yards, with two touchdowns and two interceptions. Not too shabby for his first extended action.Houston is probably the safe choice, and if Chryst had to make a decision now, he’d almost certainly pick Houston. But the head coach has nearly eight months to arrive at that choice, and a lot can change in that time span.In just a few short months, Hornibrook progressed tremendously. He’s a tall, built left-hander who puts a tight spiral on the ball. If he gets more comfortable with the speed of play and further masters the playbook, there’s a real chance he can put up a fight for the starting job.The caveat with starting Houston is that he only has one season left. It’s another season the younger quarterbacks can develop, but it’s also a whole season of wasting valuable in-game experience.UW’s schedule only exacerbates the problem. Compared to the cookie-cutter Big Ten slate it has had the past two seasons, the first four conference games are against Michigan State, Michigan, Ohio State and Iowa, and three of those — with the exception of the Ohio State game — are on the road.Regardless of who the quarterback is, he will have to prove himself quickly if Wisconsin plans on being a contender next season.last_img read more
