PREMIUMAgrarian issues, government recruitment process top complaints to Ombudsman

first_imgForgot Password ? Topics : Indonesia’s Ombudsman says it has received fewer public complaints in 2019 than in 2018, most of them regarding land and agrarian disputes and the government recruitment process.“People’s expectations for better public services have increased, so when they encounter a problem they soon try to find ways to report it,” Ombudsman member Ahmad Alamsyah Saragih said on Tuesday.The majority of the complaints in 2019 — 865 in total — were about land and agrarian disputes, while 749 were about government employment services, 658 about education, 551 about the police, 249 about the civil registry, 184 about labor issues and another 2,208 about various other issues.Ahmad said that the agrarian sector received quite a lot of complaints amid the government’s drive to provide more land certification.

US Open: Serena Williams beats Wang Qiang to reach semi-finals

first_imgSerena Williams underlined her tag as the favourite for the US Open with a brutal quarter-final win over China’s Wang Qiang in just 44 minutes.The 37-year-old American broke serve five times and hit 25 winners as she eased to a 6-1 6-0 win over the 18th seed on Arthur Ashe StadiumWilliams, seeded eighth, is chasing a record-equalling 24th Grand Slam title.She will face Ukraine’s fifth seed Elina Svitolina, who beat Britain’s Johanna Konta, in the semi-finals.“When I play someone who is playing well I have to step up or go home and I’m not ready to go,” said Williams, who earned her 100th singles win at the US Open.“I knew I needed to come out tonight and play well. I’m feeling good, had a really tough year and I’m still here. “Physically I’m feeling great and more importantly I’m having fun every time I come out here.”Williams turns Wang’s first semi-final into nightmareSix-time US Open champion Williams has not won a Grand Slam title since returning from giving birth to daughter Olympia in September 2017.She has fallen short of moving level with Australian Margaret Court’s all-time tally with defeats in the past two Wimbledon finals and last year’s US Open showpiece.Here she has moved serenely through the draw, steamrolling past three of her opponents – including old rival Maria Sharapova – in straight sets.American 17-year-old Caty McNally is the only player to have tested Williams, trying to push her illustrious opponent around the court in a bid to expose her perceived lack of movement. And that will be the tactic likely to be adopted by Svitolina, whose relentless returning is the hallmark of her game.Williams never had that problem against Wang, keeping the points short with her thunderous serves and booming groundstrokes.Williams dropped just seven points as she raced into a 5-0 lead, Wang avoiding the bagel with a hard-earned hold before another forehand winner from the American clinched the opener in 23 minutes.Williams won 26 of the first-set points compared to 11 by her opponent, cracking 12 winners and winning 92% of the points when she landed her first serve.Wang, who had not dropped a set on her way to the last eight, looked completed shell-shocked as she continued to be pummelled by a ruthless Williams in the second set. The winners continued to flow from the American’s racquet as she did bagel Wang at the second attempt, sealing the shortest completed win of the tournament with another sizzling cross-court forehand.Wang won just four points in the second set and ended the match without hitting a single winner.last_img read more

Black Lives Matter leaders say governor will sign executive order on felon voting

first_imgDES MOINES — Black Lives Matter leaders say Governor Kim Reynolds has pledged to sign an executive order to restore felon voting rights in time for the general election, but that it would not likely happen until later this summer.They met with the governor at the state capitol Monday while dozens of protesters rallied outside the room chanting “Let them vote.”Matthew Bruce of Des Moines Black Lives Matter says his group plans to pressure the governor to act faster. “We’re gonna lead the process of getting out own language written down and we’re gonna use that to take back to the governor’s office and make sure this issue is not forgotten and that felons go into November with the right to vote,” Bruce said.Representative Ako Abdul-Samad who was also in the meeting says signing an order in time for the election would be a positive step.  “There will be an executive order, but at the same time we have to push in January for the legislation so that we get it permanently,” he said.Abdul-Samad also said he is glad Reynolds is not rushing an executive order before vetting the language with voting rights supporters.last_img read more

Our team is playing well together which makes my job easier. . ..I’m happy with the ways things are going.”This is Kinrade’s second season in Europe after he spent two seasons in the AHL with the Binghamton Senators, the farm team of the Ottawa Senators.Kinrade was a mainstay on the Baby Sens blueline, and was a key cog in Binghamton’s run to the Calder Cup title in 2011.However, Kinrade felt he would not get a fair shake with Ottawa Senator management so he bolted for Europe, first signing with HC Plzen 1929 of the Czech Extraliga.last_img read more

Two nations get tough on bird flu

first_imgHANOI, Vietnam – Two of the countries hardest hit by bird flu announced extreme measures to fight the disease Tuesday, with China promising to vaccinate its entire poultry stock of 14 billion birds and Vietnam launching a campaign to purge its two largest cities of poultry. Jia Youling, chief veterinary officer in China’s Agriculture Ministry, said China is in the process of vaccinating all poultry in the country. He said the government will pay all fees involved, but he did not provide any details of how officials would carry out the vaccinations. It was unclear if the birds were being vaccinated against the virulent H5N1 bird flu strain that has ravaged poultry stocks across Asia and killed at least 64 people since 2003. China has more than 14 billion farm poultry, accounting for nearly 21 percent of the world’s total. Millions of birds have already been vaccinated in the country because of previous outbreaks. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week Meanwhile, in Vietnam, government officials in Ho Chi Minh City and the capital Hanoi have warned farmers to kill or sell all poultry by Monday. They will be compensated at half the current market value if they act now, but birds found alive after the deadline will be destroyed with no compensation, officials said. “We hope that clearing out live poultry in the city will help minimize the chances of people getting sick from bird flu,” said Huynh Hu Loi, director of Ho Chi Minh City’s animal health department. “A pandemic can happen anytime. We are doing all we can.” The campaign is one of the most extreme measures taken in the communist country to try to slow the H5N1 virus. Vietnam has experienced a surge in poultry outbreaks over the past few weeks. The latest human death was reported last week. On Tuesday, China said it would also ship 45 tons of bird flu vaccine to Vietnam. International health experts have warned that the bird flu virus could mutate into a form easily spread among humans, igniting a global pandemic. So far, most human cases have been traced to contact with infected birds. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Information workshops needed on 5G and mining – Cllr Kennedy

first_imgDonegal County Councillor Niamh Kennedy has called for two workshops to give representatives information on two pressing issues in the county.Clarity is needed on 5G and mining licences in Donegal, the Leas Cathaoirleach has said.Cllr Kennedy has asked the executive to hold a workshop for councillors to gain an understanding of the 5G network roll-out. “I think there is a lot of people who are quite concerned, and maybe there is no reason to be,” Cllr Kennedy said.Another workshop was requested on mining in areas such as the Sperrins.“A number of meetings were held throughout the county and they were well-attended,” Cllr Kennedy said. Cllr Kennedy added that councillors should be informed on the matter to answer public concerns.Meanwhile, Clare County Council has opposed the roll-out of 5G in the county and called on CommReg to deny licensing for its roll-out. The Clare County Council is calling on the Minister for Communication, Climate Change and the Environment to establish a working group to establish the facts about the radiation impact of 5G on the environment and human health.Information workshops needed on 5G and mining – Cllr Kennedy was last modified: July 23rd, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:5gcllr nimah kennedyMININGlast_img read more
