Lampung university students face intimidation over discussion on discrimination against Papuans

first_imgShe said her Gojek account had been hacked and used to make several GoFood orders.On the same day, Unila’s vice rector for academic and student affairs Yulianto told Chairul to postpone the discussion.Teknokra later reported on its website that Yulianto had told the student press chairman that he had received a call from people claiming to be representatives of the State Intelligence Agency (BIN) regarding the discussion.Chairul said the discussion was held to raise awareness of racial discrimination in Indonesia. “The country’s motto is Bhinneka Tunggal Ika [Unity in Diversity]. We should bring up such awareness through this open discussion, so we can respect each other,” he said.Read also: ‘#PapuanLivesMatter’: George Floyd’s death hits close to home in IndonesiaPreviously, the University of Indonesia disavowed a public discussion held by the university’s Student Executive Body (BEM UI) about racism against Papuans in the legal system, saying the discussion did not reflect the views and attitudes of UI as an institution. The university’s Lecturers Alliance, however, conveyed its support for the discussion, lauding it for it fostering a spirit of free speech among university academics.The issue of racial discrimination against Papuans resurfaced recently following the demands of prosecutors of the Balikpapan district court in East Kalimantan to sentence seven Papuans to five to 17 years’ imprisonment for treason over their involvement in antiracism protests in Jayapura in August last year. (trn)Topics : Members of the University of Lampung (Unila) student press Teknokra have received anonymous threats in relation to the organization’s plan to hold a public discussion on racial discrimination against Papuans.The online discussion was planned to be held on Thursday with three speakers scheduled to talk: Indonesian People’s Front for West Papua (FRI-West Papua) spokesperson Surya Anta Ginting, Papuan Students Alliance head Jhon Gobai and Journalist Association for Diversity (SEJUK) program manager Tantowi Anwari.On Wednesday, two members of Teknokra received threats from unknown people, who questioned their intentions for holding the discussion. Teknokra chairman Chairul Rahman Arif said an anonymous person had sent him WhatsApp messages containing the identity and address of his parents as well as a photo of his identity card.“What is the goal of holding a discussion that provokes many people. We have your [personal] data,” the message read, according to Chairul, as quoted by also: Intimidation of government critics raises concerns about freedom of speechTeknokra editor-in-chief Mitha Setiani, who was to moderate the discussion, also received threats.last_img read more

Workplace drug testers just say no to legalised cannabis

first_imgNZ Herald 30 August 2019Family First Comment: Businesses sound the alarm…“You can’t have drug-impaired people operating processing sites, yet this Government is considering legalising stuff we are testing against. We are strongly anti because we know how it negatively impacts on performance.”“We have a high suicide rate and a high level of mental health issues – it would do nothing but social harm,” #saynopetodopeThe number of zeroes on the balance sheet of Kirk Hardy’s business would probably treble if cannabis use was legalised, but it would be hard to find anyone more opposed to the idea.The co-founder and chief executive of The Drug Detection Agency (TDDA), Australasia’s biggest workplace drug tester, says legalisation would be “a terrible mistake”.“We have a high suicide rate and a high level of mental health issues – it would do nothing but social harm,” he argues.Hardy says that judging from the experience of US workplace drug testers in states where cannabis use has been legalised, his business workload would increase three- or four-fold.“Businesses don’t want it in the workplace, so they do more testing.”Hardy has spent much of his working life around drugs and has seen first-hand the damage they wreak. The Aucklander was a panel beater before joining the police force and becoming a drug squad detective for nearly 10 years.Workplace drug testing is a family affair. Hardy’s brother Karl, one of the original directors after TDDA was founded in 2005, now heads another drug testing company, Auckland-based WorkCare, which has partnered with the Employers and Manufacturers Association (EMA).READ MORE: read more

OA Football

first_imgThe Oldenburg Academy football team is in its second season.  Wes Gillman and his staff already have two wins to their credit since the program began.  Though this might seem to be a low number, this is quite an accomplishment when you are beginning a new program in a 1A school.  Add to this that they have no facilities to speak of, it is even more amazing.Besides trying to find the number of players it takes to field a team, think how difficult it is to find opponents when established schools already have  as many as five seasons or more already booked.  This is a challenge for their athletic director.  Since he is new, he is still trying to get his feet on the ground.  Without a football field of their own, they need to find opponents willing to host or find schools willing to allow them to use their field for “home games”.Most schools in the area like to have 50+ players on their roster.  This is a problem for OA and other 1A schools who have small numbers.  Without a feeder system, the coaching staff must wait until each fall to see how many boys enroll.  Recruiting is a no-no under IHSAA rules.  Good luck to Coach Gillman and the Twisters in their second season.last_img read more

Rebel still has Champion cause

first_img Last summer’s Galway Hurdle hero has not been seen since he was beaten by Captain Cee Bee at Tipperary in early October, but Winters could not be happier with his eight-year-old ahead of a spring campaign. “He’s fit and well and we haven’t made any definite plans for him yet,” said the County Cork handler. Press Association Trainer Mick Winters is keeping his options open regarding whether to let Rebel Fitz line up in next month’s Stan James Champion Hurdle at Cheltenham.center_img “You don’t wish anything bad on any horse, but if Hurricane Fly couldn’t go to Cheltenham, we might just be on the boat. “We don’t really know what to do yet. If all the big boys turn up we might give it a miss and stay at home. “He might just come up a bit short against the top boys and you wouldn’t want him to go over to Cheltenham and have a very hard race and then bottom him for the rest of the season. “There is a nice valuable race in Cork the week after Cheltenham we could go for instead and there is always Punchestown and Aintree later on.” last_img read more

High school football proposal wouldn’t affect Hancock County teams

first_img Latest Posts Hospice volunteers help families navigate grief and find hope – September 12, 2020 MPA approves golf, XC, field hockey, soccer; football, volleyball moved to spring – September 10, 2020 Bio Latest posts by Mike Mandell (see all)center_img Ellsworth runners compete in virtual Boston Marathon – September 16, 2020 Mike MandellMike Mandell is the sports editor at The Ellsworth American and Mount Desert Islander. He began working for The American in August 2016. You can reach him via email at ELLSWORTH — The Maine Principals’ Association on Friday proposed the addition of a fifth class for high school football, but that proposal would not affect class designations for the Ellsworth, Bucksport and Mount Desert Island football teams.The MPA’s proposed addition of a fifth football class, which would be designated as Class E, could offer help teams that have recently dropped high school football or have plans to do so in the near future. The proposed class would consist of Camden Hills, Sacopee Valley, Maranacook, Telstar and Boothbay, though Camden Hills intends to play a junior varsity schedule next season instead.Under the proposed realignment, Ellsworth and Bucksport would both stay in Class D North. That division would add Foxcroft in place of Pittsfield’s Maine Central Institute, which would move to Class C. Dexter, Orono, Stearns/Lee Academy, Mount View, Washington Academy, Mattanawcook Academy and Houlton would round out the rest of the division.“It seems like a good way to help some of these schools that have concerns over numbers and other things still have a chance,” said Ellsworth head coach Duane Crawford. “For those teams who are worried about whether or not they can keep football, this would be a helpful system since it would allow those kids there to still play.”This is placeholder textThis is placeholder textMount Desert Island would stay in Class C North. The Trojans won the regional championship last season before losing to the Wells Warriors in the state title game Nov. 19. Joining them will be MCI, Nokomis, Hermon, John Bapst, Belfast, Waterville, Winslow, Medomak Valley, Gardiner, Old Town and Oceanside.Next year will be Ellsworth’s first season of playoff eligibility since the football team returned in 2012. The school has discontinued its partnership with Sullivan’s Sumner Memorial High School because the latter is slated to graduate its only player in June. After going winless in each of their first three seasons, the Eagles have won seven games over their past two.“With Ellsworth, we’re where we are now because we’ve had a few years to develop,” Crawford said. “At the same time, there’s a lot of other programs where they’re in a tough spot. It’s not easy to field a football team, but it’s worth it when you’re able to give the kids more opportunities.”Terms of the proposal would give schools chances to petition the MPA to move up or down from their assigned class sizes. The MPA is expected to hold a vote on the proposal in April.last_img read more

first_imgBut he added that his view on the NHL season was more affected by the state of the world during the coronavirus pandemic than the logistics of holding sporting events.“Everything just keeps getting delayed even more, like lockdowns and stuff like that,” Doughty said. “People are dying even more every day. So I just don’t see how or when we’re going to be able to make any type of decision to return to the season.”In an interview Monday on CNN, Commissioner Gary Bettman continued to say the NHL hasn’t ruled anything in or out when it comes to the resumption of play.“We’re exploring all options, but when we’ll have an opportunity to return depends on things that we have absolutely no control over because it all starts with everybody’s health and well-being,” Bettman said. “Until there’s a sense that people can get together, not just in our arenas but for our players to get together to work out, we don’t know when we can come back, but it’s something we’re monitoring on a daily basis.”— Hockey Writer Stephen Whyno reporting April 13, 2020 “The health of our players, coaches, fans and colleagues are of paramount importance to us as we go through this unprecedented time,” Mike Rabil, who founded the league with his brother Paul, said in a statement. “As a league, we will continue to adhere to guidelines administered by the CDC, respective state governments, and our hosting venues. This was a difficult decision for our league but a necessary measure to ensure the safety of all parties.” The league debuted last year with six teams traveling to different cities to play weekend games. One team was added for this season, which has 12 weekends of regular season action planned, including an all-star game, before its playoffs.The National Lacrosse League last week canceled the last three weekends of its regular season.

And Europe has been a major part of Meier’s recruiting strategies for many years, so she went to Spain shortly after the Hurricanes were ousted from the ACC Tournament.Most of her meetings and visits were canceled. She left about a day after arriving, and one player she was in contact with was getting alerts on her phone about the severity of the pandemic during her meeting with Meier. “And I said, ‘OK, I need to go,’” Meier said. “I had two more visits planned, but I didn’t make them and got back.”Meier was planning to be in New York this weekend to support Miami’s Beatrice Mompremier at the WNBA draft, though that trip was canceled because of the pandemic, as well.

The season was scheduled to begin play on May 29 at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts. The PLL plans to announce an update in May on a new start date for the season. The star Los Angeles Kings defenseman said Monday it’s going to be difficult for hockey to get back this season, even just to hold the playoffs and hand out the Stanley Cup.“Honestly, I don’t see how the season is going to return,” Doughty said. “I really don’t. We have no idea when this virus is going to be over.”The 30-year-old known for his frank answers and commentary cast doubt on the validity of a 2020 Cup winner, especially given that there were 189 regular-season games left and not all teams had played the same number of games. Doughty is also concerned about how playing late into the summer might affect next season, which the league has maintained it wants to play in full.“I know they so badly want to give out the Stanley Cup this year, but in all seriousness it’s not going to be like winning a real Stanley Cup because the (regular) season wasn’t finished,” Doughty said. “There’s teams that couldn’t get in the playoffs. And then I’m assuming they’d have to come up with a different playoff format. I don’t know. It’d be a little different. I’m not a huge fan of it, as much as I want to play. I just don’t want things to go into next season and affecting those (games).”Doughty, who won the Cup with Los Angeles in 2012 and 2014, said “for sure” his opinion would be different if the Kings were in a different spot in the standings.

Orange looks to continue historic NCAA tournament run against Kentucky without star Sykes

first_imgA couple of years ago, Quentin Hillsman discovered a way to shake up Syracuse’s practices and pose a challenge to his players.He’d interrupt scrimmages and announce a situation: Leading scorer Brittney Sykes has fouled out. Or, top shooter Brianna Butler has fouled out.Someone else would need to come in, and the team would have to adapt and get it done, regardless of personnel.“I think that really helped us in this game,” Hillsman said in the postgame press conference following SU’s win over Chattanooga on Saturday. “It’s just like Britt(ney Sykes) fouled out in practice. “It’s time to make a decision. Are we going to feel sorry for ourselves and lay down, or are we going to compete and fight to win this basketball game?”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe head coach’s tactic came in handy against the Mocs as the Orange won its first-ever NCAA tournament game 59-53 despite Sykes, the Orange’s star guard, going down with what appeared to be a season-ending right knee injury in the second half. SU outrebounded, outdefended and outplayed Chattanooga en route to the first-round win.The journey without Sykes continues for at least one more game, when No. 6-seed seed Syracuse (23-9, 10-6 Atlantic Coast) takes on No. 3-seed Kentucky (25-8, 10-6 Southeastern) on Monday at 6:30 p.m. in Memorial Coliseum in Lexington, Ky.The extent of Sykes’ right knee injury remains unknown, but Hillsman said that she will sit out SU’s Round of 32 game against Kentucky, before being evaluated further in Syracuse this week. “You’ve got to go in there expecting to win the basketball game,” Hillsman said, “but it is tough when you lose a player and you don’t know exactly what’s going on. It’s kind of mixed emotions.”After Sykes was helped off the court with 12:46 left in the game, Butler shook off her shooting slump to lead the Orange’s offense the rest of the way. The sophomore netted nine points in the second half and, despite finishing 2-of-12 for the game, hit game-clinching free throws down the stretch.As a whole, the Orange didn’t shoot particularly well from the field — just 31.5 percent for the game.“We just needed everyone to crash and get the rebounds and put it back up and keep playing hard and fight through our missed shots,” Butler said in the postgame press conference. “Everyone is going to miss but it’s the people who continue to play hard that make a difference.”Thanks to Syracuse’s energy on the offensive glass, the team had a handful of second-chance opportunities, including 14 points off offensive rebounds in the first half. The Orange grabbed 19 offensive boards in the half to Chattanooga’s 21 defensive rebounds.Out of Sykes’ team-high 12 rebounds, five were off SU misses. SU center Shakeya Leary corralled eight rebounds for the game, and five of those were shots the Orange missed.“We were getting good looks at the time, we just weren’t able to convert that into points,” Butler said, “but we were able to pick it up on the defensive end and get rebounds, which took place of the missed shots.”Even with Sykes tearfully forced to watch the end of the game on the bench with a bag of ice on her elevated right knee, her teammates were able to finish the game for her. On Monday night, they’ll face a Kentucky team that rolled No. 14-seed Wright State by 46 points Saturday, and will once again be on its home court.But Hillsman’s practice method had his players ready to move on without Sykes against Chattanooga. Now, they’ll have to be ready for a full game.Said Leary during the postgame press conference: “I think Coach Q did a great job this season preparing us by putting us through tough situations in practice. “It just carried over.” Comments Published on March 24, 2014 at 1:05 am Contact Phil: | @PhilDAbb Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

O’Neill wants Trojans to improve in the second half

first_imgKevin O’Neill was content with his debut but wouldn’t stand for his team’s imperfections.The new head coach of USC men’s basketball made that message loud and clear after earning his first win with the Trojans on Tuesday against UC Riverside. The Trojans’ lead was never threatened, but spurts of sloppy play in the second half marred an otherwise easy victory.Transfer penalty · Marcus Johnson must sit out against LMU since he played in an exhibition game for UConn before transferring to USC. – Nathaniel Gonzalez | Daily Trojan“For the most part we played solid enough basketball to win by 10 points, but we’ve got to play better as time goes on,” O’Neill said after the game.USC (1-0) will try to clear up those issues when it hosts Loyola Marymount (1-3) Saturday at 5 p.m. at the Galen Center.The Trojans are still expected to be short-handed with several players sidelined by injuries and eligibility issues. Redshirt junior forward Alex Stepheson is battling a knee injury and redshirt senior forward Marcus Johnson must sit out Saturday’s game to fulfill an NCAA requirement for playing an exhibition at Connecticut before transferring to USC.Sophomore forward Leonard Washington and redshirt senior guard Mike Gerrity will not be available until the end of the semester.Sophomore guard Percy “Romeo” Miller will be available to USC after missing the opener because of an NCAA eligibility issue.Miller’s return could help extend the bench for a team that saw four players play 33 minutes or more in its opener.“I doubt any of these guys have played these kinds of minutes in their life,” O’Neill said.The Lions are coming off a season full of turmoil and disappointment with only three wins. Coach Max Good took over for Bill Bayno midway through the season after Bayno had been on an extended medical leave.But with their four leading scorers returning and four games under their belt already, the Lions may have experience on their side. LMU has kept all three of its losses close, losing by an average of less than four points.Oregon transfer forward Drew Viney has stood out for the Lions with his early season play. The freshman from Villa Park, Calif., scored 30 points against UC Irvine and 22 points against Montana.USC has had an overwhelming advantage in its series against LMU, holding a 41-5 all-time record against the Lions. The Trojans hold an eight-game winning streak in the series and have not lost since 1996.last_img read more

Which teams can Jordan Ayew break Anthony Yeboah’s 24-year-old Premier League record against?

first_imgBlack Stars striker, Jordan Ayew is on the verge of making history.The player is just one goal away from becoming Ghana’s highest ever goalscorer in the Premier League.He equalled former Leeds forward, Anthony Yeboah’s tally of 24 goals, scored across just two seasons in the English top-flight, last Saturday with the only goal of the game for Crystal Palace against Watford.Jordan’s tally has come in significantly fewer games than “Yegoala’s” but it does, in no way, lessen the impact of the feat.Jordan celebrates winner over West Ham in OctoberJordan’s brother, Andre and Ghana’s highest ever goalscorer, Asamoah Gyan have both played in the Premier League but neither have got as close to the record as Jordan has.With nine matches left, there are nine opportunities for Jordan to break the 24-year-old record.Will he break it next weekend, in the final game of the season or will he have to wait until next season?Ayew has scored twice in his last two Premier League matches and given his red hot form this season, don’t count out the Ghanaian, finding the net again before the campaign is over.So when and against which teams could Jordan break the record?Ayew and Crystal Palace’s remaining Premier League gamesSaturday 14 March 2020 – vs Bournemouth (A)Palace travel to Bournemouth just four days from today. Looking at the stats, you would bet on Jordan getting a goal against the Cherries.Bournemouth have conceded 47 goals throughout the season – only four teams have conceded more goals than them this season in the Premier League. They have also conceded 10 goals in their last 10 league games, the kind of team you’d expect Jordan to be eyeing as he closes in on the new record.How did Jordan do against them earlier in the season?  He played 90 minutes against them in the first game a 1-0 win for Palace, although he failed to score or provide an assist.Saturday 21 March 2020 – vs Liverpool (A)The Reds have only conceded 21 goals this season, the lowest any team has let in, in the Premier League.They have conceded six times in their last five league games, not the worst ratio but it gets a little more interesting when you consider that all those goals have come in their last three games.Liverpool are showing some defensive frailties and teams are taking advantage. Jordan could as well.How did Jordan do against them earlier in the season?  He played 76 minutes for Palace in the 2-1 loss but failed to score or provide an assist.Saturday 4 April 2020 – vs Burnley (H)This will be a tough one for both Palace and Jordan Ayew. 10th-placed Burnley have conceded 40 times this season but only twice in their last five league games – and those included matches against both Tottenham and Arsenal.Sean Dyche’s might just present Jordan’s most difficult challenge in their nine remaining matches.How did Jordan do against them earlier in the season?  He played 82 minutes for Palace in the 2-1 win in November but failed to score or provide an assist.Saturday 11 April 2020 – vs Leicester City (A)Leicester have one of the league’s best defences with only 28 conceded. But recent performances will give Crystal Palace and Jordan some encouragement. For all their disappointing results, they’ve however only let in four goals in their last five matches. Not exactly a porous defence.How did Jordan do against them earlier in the season?  He played 78 minutes for Palace in the 2-1 loss but failed to score or provide an assist.Saturday 18 April 2020 – vs Chelsea (H)Chelsea’s defensive issues have been well discussed this season however the Blues seem to have turned a corner and are proving to be a harder nut to crack than before.How did Jordan do against them earlier in the season?  He played the full match for Palace in the 2-0 loss but failed to score or provide an assist.Monday 27 April 2020 – vs Aston Villa (A)Jordan had a decent outing against Villa in the first meeting and will fancy his chances against a side in the bottom three in the league that has conceded 56 goals; the most in the division.How did Jordan do against them earlier in the season?  He scored the only goal of the game in a 1-0 win for Palace.Saturday 2 May 2020 – vs Manchester United (H)United’s defence in recent weeks has been almost unbreachable. They’ve only conceded once in their last five Premier League matches. They might be a tough challenge for Jordan should he not have scored before then but United have a tendency to lose their cool against the ‘smaller teams’.How did Jordan do against them earlier in the season?  He scored the opening goal at Old Trafford in Palace’s famous 2-1 win.Saturday 9 May 2020 – vs Wolverhampton Wanderers (A)Only 34 goals conceded by Wolves and only two in their last four matches but they do occasionally let a few in on a bad day. It’ll be up to Jordan to take advantage should they have one.How did Jordan do against them earlier in the season?  He completed 62 minutes of their 1-1 draw, back in September.Sunday 17 May 2020 – vs Tottenham Hotspur (H)Jose Mourinho’s Spurs side are struggling mightily to keep out goals.
