Start-ups, NGOs team up to help people affected by COVID-19

first_imgStart-ups, a crowdfunding platform and non-government organizations (NGOs) have established a charity program to help those who have lost their livelihoods as a result of the partial COVID-19 lockdown.The start-ups, including ride-hailing service provider Grab Indonesia, e-commerce platform Tokopedia and e-wallet service OVO have agreed to open donation channels on their respective platforms from April 17 to May 20 to help the people affected by COVID-19. The money will be given to Indonesia-based crowdfunding platform BenihBaik.BenihBaik and NGOs Gusdurian Network and Pemuda Muhammadiyah – the youth wing of Muhammadiyah – will collect recipient data, buy staple foods such as rice, oil and sugar and distribute them through Grab’s motorcycle taxis. “Our final target is to deliver staple food packages to 100,000 people, especially those who work in informal sectors,” said OVO President Director Karaniya Dharmasaputra during a press conference on Friday.He said that in the first phase, the charity program aimed to reach 15,000 people in Greater Jakarta as it was the epicenter of the COVID-19 pandemic.BenihBaik founder and senior journalist Andy F. Noya said that the crowdfunding platform team had data for at least 60,000 aid recipients including those in orphanages and nursing homes. The team is planning to collect similar data in Central and East Java soon.“We are an ecosystem that works together comprehensively, so the aid can be delivered accordingly,” he said.Gusdurian Network coordinator Alissa Wahid said the group sought to help informal workers such as street vendors and performers because they were vulnerable to falling into poverty as they relied on unpredictable daily incomes to survive.As people are pushed to stay indoors during the pandemic, informal workers have lost more than 70 percent of their daily incomes, she said.Grab Indonesia Managing Director Neneng Goenadi said the aid packages would be delivered with a “less-contact” approach following the government’s call for social distancing.Topics :last_img read more

MEPs water down binding vote on pay in Shareholder Rights Directive

first_imgIn a statement, the European Parliament said MEPs had instead agreed that individual countries would be allowed to decide whether votes should be binding or not, likely to be agreed when the directive is transposed into national law.Other changes proposed by MEPs will see listed companies obliged to publish a breakdown of taxes paid in each country they operate, as well as any public subsidies received.Sergio Cofferati, the Italian MEP who has acted as rapporteur for the Shareholder Rights Directive, praised the overwhelming vote in favour of the law – approved by 556 parliamentarians, with 67 opposed and 80 abstentions.“The approved text contains important instruments to fight tax evasion and tax avoidance, in particular a country-by-country reporting obligation that would ensure multinationals openly declare the taxes they pay in each country they operate in,” he said.Referencing recent disclosures on the tax arrangements of multinationals based in Luxembourg, he added: “We cannot miss this opportunity, in particular after Luxleaks and other scandals.”In a joint statement earlier this week, UK NGO ShareAction and Global Witness expressed disappointment about the shift away from a binding vote on pay.The NGOs also noted the shift away from mandatory disclosure of investor engagement policies with companies, moving to a ‘comply-or-explain’ approach.Cofferati was nevertheless positive about the legislation.“The vote is an important step forward to steer companies and investors towards long-term-oriented decision making and to ensure more transparency in the governance of European companies and engagement of institutional investors and asset managers,” he said. European parliamentarians have watered down proposals for a binding vote on executive pay, ahead of negotiations with EU member states over the Shareholder Rights Directive.In an amendment agreed by the European Parliament on Wednesday, member states will be allowed to decide if shareholder votes on pay should be binding or advisory – going against the grain of the European Commission’s initial proposal endorsed by the Council of the EU in early March.The compromise draft of the directive agreed by member states in March said countries should ensure a vote on pay was binding.The draft added: “A remuneration policy shall continue to apply until a new one is approved by the general meeting.”last_img read more

Hurricane Irene wreaks havoc in The Bahamas

first_img 305 Views   no discussions Share NewsRegional Hurricane Irene wreaks havoc in The Bahamas by: – August 27, 2011 Share Sharecenter_img Tweet Sharing is caring! Hurricane Irene’s winds tore down utility poles throughout New Providence. (Photo: Nassau Guardian)NASSAU, Bahamas — Hurricane Irene started its exit from The Bahamas on Thursday night, leaving a trail of destruction in its wake.While New Providence and Grand Bahama were spared the full force of the storm, many Family Islands, particularly the southeastern and central islands, were pummelled, the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) reported.The centre of the storm passed over Eleuthera and Abaco for much of Thursday.Power lines and telecommunications lines went down in some islands, as the category three storm roared across the archipelago.But no loss of life or injuries were reported.Damage on Cat Island, Rum Cay, Crooked Island, Acklins and Mayaguana is expected to be in the millions of dollars, as hundreds of homes, churches, other buildings and infrastructure were either damaged or destroyed.According to NEMA reports, all the islands were impacted in some way.In New Providence, fallen trees and damaged roofs constituted most of the damage.In Lovely Bay, Acklins, 90 percent of the settlement is reportedly gone, according to NEMA.“House roofs and several homes [were] blown away. Power lines and trees went down in the roads, and the shelter’s population increased,” said a NEMA statement.Communication on that island was limited on Thursday.Meteorologist Godfrey Burnside said the Automatic Weather Station in Arthur’s Town, Cat Island, recorded gusts of 140 miles per hour around 2 am on Thursday, and Moss Town, Exuma, recorded gusts up to 127 miles per hour.“That is significant and that is why you hear all the damage taking place,” Burnside said.Just over two inches of rain had fallen at Lynden Pindling International Airport at 9 am Thursday, and more was expected.NEMA said it received reports that 40 houses received major damage in the communities of Betsy Bay, Pirate Wells and Abraham’s Bay on Mayaguana.Concerns were also expressed by the Assistant Commissioner of Police John Ferguson in reference to three people detained at a police station there, NEMA said.On Cat Island, hurricane force winds brought down scores of power lines and left the island without any form of telecommunication, NEMA reported.NEMA also received reports that the administrator’s home in north Cat Island lost its roof.Areas in Arthur’s Town and Dumfries flooded. The roof of the police station in Arthur’s Town was blown off and police vehicles were flooded. St Andrew’s Church also lost its roof, NEMA reported.In Rum Cay, which is home to about 100 people, NEMA received a report that homes have major damage, roads are impassable due to fallen trees and the bridge in Port Nelson is lost.According to the Bahamas Electricity Corporation (BEC), residents in most islands with the exception of Inagua — where power was restored to the majority of customers — continued to experience outages up to Thursday night due to controlled power station shut downs or downed power lines.NEMA said at least one school was damaged on Crooked Island.The school in Colonel Hill lost its roof and two classroom blocks. Additionally, St John’s Baptist Church and several other buildings also lost their roofs.That island experienced winds around 120 miles per hour, according to NEMA.Long Island Administrator Jordan Ritchie said the main concern was flooding in Clarence Town.However, a number of homes and St Paul’s Anglican Church received roof damage.Meantime, Central Eleuthera Administrator Chrisfield Johnson said based on initial reports, Eleuthera fared relatively well.“So far we haven’t had loss of life. There is some structural damage to buildings but we haven’t done an assessment so we don’t know the extent,” he told The Nassau Guardian on Thursday evening.It was still too dangerous to go out, he said.“The only thing that remains is to do an assessment of the environment,” Johnson said.“There is a tremendous amount of debris on the roads. Our first priority is to clear the streets, so we’re putting together a team of workers to clear the streets to give us access.”He said he would determine the severity of the impact of Irene sometime Friday, when he expected to be able to conduct a door-to-door assessment.NEMA Director Captain Stephen Russell said NEMA is still determining how it will access the affected islands, as transportation may be limited over the next few days.In Nassau, Hurricane Irene destroyed the straw market tent and damaged vendor goods, likely forcing the government to accelerate plans to open the new market.When The Nassau Guardian visited the old market, most of the main market tent cover had been blown off.Many vendors kept their goods in plastic bags on tables in the market during the storm. Those bags were blown to the ground and were in water after the most intense winds that hit New Providence passed on Thursday. Some of the market stalls were also damaged during the storm.The vendors were scheduled to move into the new market, also on Bay Street, next month.Deputy Prime Minister Brent Symonette and his wife Robin took a look at the damage during a personal tour of the area.“There is some good and some bad,” Symonette said.“Hopefully it will speed up the completion of the new market. Also as September comes it is traditionally a slow season for tourism. So, hopefully we will be able make some adjustments and get towards the new market.”As The Nassau Guardian toured the old market, large waves in the harbour breached the seawall, sending sea water toward the site.Waves also damaged the floorboards of the deck of the nearby Senor Frogs restaurant. The deck extends out into the harbour.A portion of the restaurant’s roof, which held up its logo, also fell during the storm. It lay smashed, blocking the hurricane shutter-secured front door of the restaurant.About one mile east of Senior Frogs, the dock and several boats at Harbour Central Marina were damaged after two harbour pilot tug boats that were secured broke loose and crashed at the dock during the storm.There was also a significant amount of debris along the main Bay Street strip as a result of the storm.A portion of the temporary wooden barrier near the former site of Betty K. Agency’s Ltd., which was destroyed by fire on Valentine’s Day, was also blown down.In the meantime, The Bahamas’ busiest airport reopened Friday morning, giving hundreds of stranded visitors access to outbound flights after Hurricane Irene forced the closure of the Lynden Pindling International Airport.John Terpstra, vice president of operations at the Nassau Airport Development Company (NAD), said the aim was for a 7 am opening.“We’re doing everything in our power to be ready to open,” he said. “The damage was very minimal in the brand new terminal, almost no damage at all. One ceiling tile fell down [and] we have some minor water leaks underneath the doorways… and in the old terminal, we have the same water leaks we have come to know and love.”The Lynden Pindling International Airport closed Wednesday afternoon in anticipation of the category three hurricane.According to a statement from the Ministry of Tourism, the hurricane passed 60 miles to the east of the major tourist centers of Nassau and Paradise Island and 100 miles east of Grand Bahama IslandThe airport in Grand Bahama was also expected to be back in operation Friday morning, with assessments of airports throughout the other islands still underway.Many large resorts remained operational during the storm.All guests staying at the Sandals Royal Bahamian were moved to the resort’s Windsor Building as an extra precaution, resort officials confirmed. The property also outfitted its ballroom with beds, food and beverages and an entertainment section.And the resort wasn’t alone.“The country’s largest resort, Atlantis, accommodated some 6,000 guests during the storm and is fully operational,” said the release. “Other resorts in The Bahamas will be open for business as early as [Friday].”Travelers are advised to either check bahamas.com for updates or contact their prospective hotel, airline or cruise line for information.Cruise ports in Nassau and Grand Bahama were expected to reopen Thursday evening and ships are anticipated to resume calls as early as Saturday morning.Those rerouted cruise ships would have brought with them close to $2 million in total spend, with tourism officials not expecting a return in that business until the weekend.According to statistics provided by the Ministry of Tourism, the initial loss projection as a result of Hurricane Irene is around $1.84 million.“At this time, it is definitely a loss for us,” Carla Stuart, the ministry’s director of cruise development, said earlier, “because the weather is aiming directly at us and it’s such a short notice, but generally that’s what we’re seeing. This would have been a very good week for us.”Caribbean News Nowlast_img read more

Algae helps connect suspect in violent kidnapping, rape attempt

first_imgInvestigators in Orange County say that algae found on a suspect’s clothing helped them identify him as the person who attempted to kidnap and rape a woman while she was walking home from work.The incident was  reported to have happened on May 12th.The victim told authorities that as she walked home, the suspect now identified as 30-year-old Patrick Howard attacked her and dragged her into a retention pond.Authorities say that with the victim’s help, a forensic botanist was able to link algae in the pond to evidence on both the suspect and the victim’s clothing.Howard has since been arrested and charged with kidnapping with intent to inflict harm or terrorize, and attempted sexual battery.Authorities also found that Howard is wanted on sex crimes in the Tennessee area.last_img

Roller hockey club sees opportunity to excel with new rink

first_imgIn 2017, Syracuse University’s club roller hockey team nearly vanished, and would’ve gone extinct without former captain Ryan Dunn’s leadership. But now, the team is developing more than its members ever could have imagined.Last season, the team qualified for nationals, but this year, it will be much better prepared. Previously, on-campus construction had made it difficult to practice regularly. Now, they’ll be able to practice at the rink in the new Barnes Center at The Arch, senior Anthony Bellman said. The new rink not only allows the team to have a home base, but also provides them with an advantage in recruiting new members.“We are really excited to have a rink that we can call ours,” junior roller hockey player Jamie Kreinces said in an email.Other teams have had an on-site roller rink to practice on, Bellman said, but for nearly two decades, SU’s teams have had to practice either in a basketball gym or travel to Black Mamba Skate Park, which is located in Shoppingtown Mall in DeWitt.This forced them to try to find transportation to practices and use a rink in the mall. It wasn’t the most conducive way to get the most of practice, said Marc Orlin, president and the team captain. The Arch gives the team a place to practice on-campus, and to potentially host other teams for scrimmages.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textIn the past, it visited teams like Endicott and Oswego for scrimmages. The regular season, however, is comprised of away tournaments — for which the team traveled to Boston, Providence, Long Island, Pittsburgh and Philadelphia last year for three- or four-game tournaments.Eva Suppa | Digital Design EditorThe team hopes to have the same intense work ethic and resiliency that carried it to nationals last year, said Kreinces, who’s going on his third season with the team.“I think our success can be attributed to how well the team meshed together,” Kreinces said, adding that the growth of this team is metaphorical for how roller hockey is growing overall as a sport.With the new rink as a key chip in their recruiting pitch, SU added some talent to its roster in the offseason. Kreinces called the freshman class “the best in a long time.”“Somehow, we’ve managed to add a couple of more very skilled players this summer, and we’re looking forward to competing,” he said.And with the new rink comes optimism. Now that last season’s struggles to find places to practice are in hindsight and it can practice on a regular basis, SU will be prepared for the obstacles it encounters.Though last year’s roller hockey team qualified for nationals, SU went 0-4 once it got there. Bellman blamed the team’s postseason underachievement on the lack of a consistent practice facility and subsequent sub-par practices.But the club is only going to grow. The team culture has evolved over the past few years because of Dunn and the strong foundation he built, Bellman said, adding that he and his current teammates have been working to make sure it doesn’t near extinction again.And the Arch a major part of the club’s future.“The new rink is going to be a game-changer,” Kreinces said. “Being able to practice on-campus is a huge benefit to the team and will help us prepare for tournaments during the season.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on September 19, 2019 at 1:27 am [email protected]last_img read more
