West Java Governor Ridwan Kamil is planning to hold massive rapid testing for COVID-19 in Bogor, Depok, Bekasi and some regions of Greater Bandung on Wednesday.The rapid test will be limited to those who meet certain criteria set by the West Java administration, as there are only around 10,000 test kits available, according to the governor.The administration has created three categories of residents eligible for the testing, which is set to take place at the Patriot Candrabaga Stadium in Bekasi, Pakan Sari Stadium in Bogor and Si Jalak Harupat Stadium in Bandung regency. Category A comprises health workers at hospitals handling patients with the disease, persons and patients under surveillance, as well as the patients’ family, neighbors and friends. Category B comprises people whose job exposes them to some social interaction and thus are prone to contracting the virus. Category C comprises people suspected of developing symptoms similar to those of COVID-19.“Please tell the public that this massive test is not for everyone. This test is meant to trace the spread [of the virus],” Ridwan said in Bandung on Monday. “The test must refer to information from the healthcare facilities and not self-assessment.”Indonesia recorded on Monday 65 new people with COVID-19, bringing the total number of confirmed cases to 579, according to the government’s tracker covid19.go.id. The country has also reported 49 deaths. West Java, the second-hardest-hit province across the country, recorded 59 confirmed cases with nine deaths as of Monday.The governor said the public should stay at home and self-isolate if they did not meet any criteria. “If you are healthy, you do not need to take the test, unless you are healthy but you meet the criteria of having had social interaction with a crowd,” said Ridwan. The administration is planning to provide a drive-through service for the rapid test, which uses a blood sample.Those belonging to Category A will also have to take the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test at referral hospitals in their respective regions.“While waiting for the drive-through test, regional leaders can perform this massive test on Category A residents in their respective regions,” said Ridwan.The West Java administration is planning to ship the test kits to regions outside Bogor, Depok, Bekasi and Bandung, especially those with a high exposure to people with COVID-19.The governor is also preparing the Patriot Candrabagha Stadium in Bekasi where the tests for categories B and C will take place for residents of Bekasi, Bekasi regency and Karawang regency.“[There will be a separate test] for Bogor regency, Depok and Bogor city. The rest are planned to take place at the Si Jalak Harupat Stadium for [residents of] Sukabumi, Cianjur, Cirebon and the others,” Ridwan added.The West Java administration will issue the call for category B and C residents to take the rapid test through their respective regional administrations. The governor, therefore, has asked the regency and city administrations to use the West Java administration’s mobile app Pikobar, which serves as a coronavirus information center, to collect their residents’ data.“After online registration, there will be a verification interview, and then a letter [on the test schedule] will be issued telling people when to come [for the test]. Thus, those coming for the drive-through test should wait for the letter,” said Ridwan.Topics :
Petrochemical producer PT Trans-Pacific Petrochemical Indotama (TPPI) has begun work to expand its sole refinery in Tuban, East Java, in cutting Indonesia’s petrochemical imports.TPPI, a subsidiary of state-owned oil and gas giant Pertamina, plans to raise its output capacity by 30 percent to 780,000 tons per year. The refinery can produce either gasoline or paraxylene, a key ingredient in making polyester textiles.The producer expects to finish designing the facility by September 2020 and finish building five storage tanks, which are key infrastructure, by December 2021. The expansion project will cost US$180 million. “By the first quarter of 2022, we expect the refinery to be fully operational,” said TPPI president director Yulian Dekri in a statement on Thursday, Sept. 24.Slashing petrochemical imports is one of the government’s many strategies to turn around Indonesia’s gaping trade deficit which, despite having improved during the health crisis, remains a long-term vulnerability for Southeast Asia’s largest economy.Indonesia imports roughly 1 million tons of paraxylene each year, according to TPPI. The country’s only other paraxylene-capable refinery is Pertamina’s Cilacap refinery in Central Java. This refinery has a smaller capacity of 200,000 tons per year. Pertamina, which acquired TPPI last year, had ordered the refiner to only produce gasoline in fueling Indonesia’s constantly growing fleet of personal vehicles.When COVID-19 struck Indonesia, causing domestic fuel demand to plunge, Pertamina ordered TPPI to halve its gasoline production while keeping the remaining capacity idle in cutting operational costs.“In August, we resumed production of paraxylene as paraxylene prices had slightly risen and domestic demand was still strong,” TPPI corporate secretary Ahmad Fanny told The Jakarta Post on Friday, Sept. 25.The company plans to produce 280,000 tons of paraxylene next year. Globally, annual paraxylene production capacity is expected to grow 12.4 million tons between 2020 and 2030 (mostly from China), which will further strain an already existing global overcapacity, wrote energy consultancy Wood Mackenzie in a statement in June.Wood Mackenzie principal analyst Joyce Grigorey said petrochemical plants already under construction would likely be built but would not necessarily run at full capacity.“Those projects that are still in the early stages of development and have not started construction will likely be delayed,” said Grigorey.Industry Minister Agus Gumiwang Kartasasmita encouraged Pertamina to allow TPPI to produce more paraxylene in curbing petrochemical imports, a result that is “very good for improving Indonesia’s economy.”Topics :

Tags: CazenoviaChittenangotrack and field Fresh off a special season and a romp to the Section III Class B-2 championship, the Cazenovia boys track and field team went to Cicero-North Syracuse’s Bragman Stadium to take part in Friday’s Section III state meet open qualifier.And the big highlight came from Sam DeLeon, who in the Division II (small school) pole vault earned a berth in the state championships at Middletown next weekend.DeLeon did so by clearing six heights in the pole vault, capped by topping a school-record 13 feet 6 inches, second to the 13’9” from Sauquoit Valley’s Slater Constantine. Andrew Kent gained third place in the 800-meter run in 2:02.62, while Austin Sanders tied for third in the high jump, clearing 5’10”. Jared Smith was sixth and Noah DeRochie seventh in the 3,000-meter steeplechase as Angelo Annotto finished eighth in the shot put.Chittenango also was part of the Division II state qualifier, where the girls Bears were victorious in the 4×800 relay. McKayla Capeling, McKenzie Dombroski, Kiara Waite and Chelsea Lamphere posted 10:01.70 to edge Beaver River (10:03.07) and earn a berth in the state meet. Dombroski also was fourth in the 800 in 2:23.56.On the boys side, the Bears had Ersilio Cerminaro, Caleb Prenoveau, Dave Gratien and Dylan Price finish third in the 4×800 in 8:19.80, improving by nearly 10 seconds over their effort at the B-1 sectionals.Individually, Cerminaro ran to third place in the 3,200 in 10:27.81. Devin Myers got fourth place in the 110 hurdles in 16.02 seconds and was fifth in the 400 hurdles in 59.11 seconds.Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story DeLeon joins Dalton Sevier in moving on to the state meet, as Sevier had cleared 6’4” in the high jump earlier this season to meet the state qualifying standard.Justin Gagnon, Josh Maxwell, Sam DeLeon and Slater DeLeon paired up to win the 4×100 relay in 44.78 seconds over Solvay (45.18), who will go to the state meet, with Gagnon second in the 110 hurdles in 15.48 seconds to Hannibal’s John Ruggio (15.15).Slater DeLeon roared to second place in the 200-meter dash in 23.22 seconds behind Vernon-Verona-Sherrill’s Cory Couture (22.40) and was third in the long jump, going 20’10 ¼” as Ray Satchwell had a third-place triple jump of 42 feet.
Related Stories Freshman Paduda dominates at faceoff X, gives Syracuse chance at victoryZonino stifles Syracuse in Hobart victoryHobart takes home coveted rivalry trophy with win over Syracuse The Carrier Dome was nearly empty one hour after the game except for the Hobart players and fans.At 10 p.m. a booming “Woo!” echoed across the Dome. Four minutes later the excitement bubbled once again and the cheering intensified. Three minutes later it grew even louder, finally stopping at 10:10 p.m.Hobart (6-6, 2-3 Eastern College Athletic) had every reason to celebrate. It staged a stunning comeback over heavily favored No. 3 Syracuse (9-3, 3-1 Big East) an hour earlier, beating the Orange 13-12 in front of 2,362 at the Carrier Dome. Alex Love scored six goals for the Statesmen, setting the team’s single-season scoring record and leading his team to a victory it’s coveted for years.“I know when we play Syracuse we always get a lot of fans,” Love said.Hobart’s comeback attempt against Syracuse came up one goal short last season. The Statesmen trailed 12-9 with 11:17 remaining. They scored three of the next four goals, but failed to capture the game-winner.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThis year, the situation was similar. Down 12-9 with 11:36 to go, Hobart stormed back once again. This time, though, they sealed the deal.Love’s game-winner with 2:13 remaining gave Hobart its first win over SU since 2006 and just its third win over SU in the last 27 years. It left Syracuse players stunned on the sidelines, and paved the way for the uproar an hour later that put a bow on the remarkable comeback.On the final goal, SU’s Drew Jenkins inadvertently pushed the ball in Love’s direction. Love knew he had to act quickly, so he scooped the ball from right to left to clear space.Love torched Syracuse all game with his left hand, sidearming the ball underneath Brian Megill and scoring from all over the field. He prematurely fired what he called a “horrible shot” on the previous possession and said that shot was in his head.“I was like ‘Oh, I should probably pull this out,’” Love said, “and then the kid backed in a little bit so I was like ‘Uh, it might be time.’ So I let it go and it went in.”Love recognized the Hobart faithful by sprinting toward the sideline and launching an imaginary arrow their way.But Syracuse wasn’t done. Steve Ianzito had one last chance. He sprinted down the field as the milliseconds dwindled and the Orange’s fate became imminent.Hobart goalie Peter Zonino, who finished with 18 saves, made his most critical save with 18 seconds left. Ianzito immediately fell to the ground, face-planting into the turf in disbelief. From there, Hobart ran out the clock and completed the upset.Love’s six-goal outburst matched a career-high and gave him Hobart’s all-time single season record with 42 goals.He torched Syracuse the year before with four goals but was unable to come away with the win. Syracuse head coach John Desko said he expected a close game from Hobart despite the team’s sub-.500 record.“He did last year, too,” Desko said. “We had a really good lead early and they came roaring back once again. They don’t quit and it’s a Hobart-Syracuse game. The guys know each other and it’s right down the road, so we expect this kind of game every year from them.”Love’s lefty, sidearm shot was too sly for Megill to handle. With two minutes left in the second quarter, Love snuck one inches under Megill’s stick and past SU goalie Dominic Lamolinara. One minute later he scored on a pass from Jake McHenry right outside the crease.“He’s got a great shot,” Megill said. “He’s really good at getting his left hand open. He had a couple nice rips from up top on man-up and then one in transition and a couple times he got me on that rocker.”Love stole the show Tuesday night with four in the second and two in the fourth. And after two goals from Derek Akner and one from Cam Stone, the game was tied.Just eight seconds after Akner’s second goal, Love delivered for the final time.And when the comeback was finally complete, Love sprinted over to his teammates and chest-bumped with teammate Ryan Munnelly. He let out a massive scream, just like the team did an hour later, still in bliss.Said Love: “It’s a big game for our school – well, maybe not for Syracuse, but for us at least.” Comments Published on April 17, 2013 at 12:52 am Contact Trevor: email@example.com | @TrevorHass Facebook Twitter Google+
Facebook Twitter Google+ The International League’s oldest player, Rajai Davis (38), picks up his second steal of the season. Speed causes mistakes. #Syracuse #Mets #MetsTwitter pic.twitter.com/pTh1zMxcAh— Billy Heyen (@Wheyen3) April 8, 2019 Rajai Davis disobeyed an old baseball adage on Syracuse Mets’ opening day: Don’t make the third out of an inning at third base. The 38-year-old outfielder, standing as the go-ahead run in the eighth inning with Tim Tebow batting, tried to steal third.His head-first slide resulted in a look of disbelief over his left shoulder. The umpire called him out. A manager may have been mad at most players for that costly out. But Tony DeFrancesco shrugged it off, because he trusts Davis.“Rajai’s a veteran,” DeFrancesco said. “He’s got the most stolen bases in the major leagues in the last 10 years. He wanted to be aggressive, and he has the green light.”Davis, even as the Mets’ and International League’s oldest player, is the self-proclaimed fastest player on the roster. He’s stolen 668 bases at a 78.7% clip in his majors and minors career. In an outfield that also includes 35-year-old Gregor Blanco and 33-year-old Carlos Gómez, both major league veterans and base-stealers themselves, Davis is moving quicker than everyone else.“He’s got all his little moves and his things that he does that he practices, and he specializes in it and it’s really cool,” Tebow said of Davis’ base-running.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text Retirement wasn’t an option heading into this season for Davis, he said. He spent the off-season at home in Connecticut, where he grew up watching the New York Mets, specifically Darryl Strawberry and Howard Johnson. So when the Mets offered him a contract this off-season, it made sense to join the organization he grew up following.Besides, his son has just gotten old enough to really see Davis play. Jordan Michael, named intentionally because Michael Jordan’s Chicago Bulls were what Davis called “my team,” is three years old. He wasn’t even one when Davis accomplished maybe the biggest feat of his career.In game seven of the 2016 World Series, Davis kept the Cleveland Indians alive in the ninth inning against Aroldis Chapman. He turned on a ball down the left field line, just over the fence, to tie the game. The veteran known for his speed had temporarily made himself nationally known with his power.That highlight is a source of motivation now, Davis said. He’ll pull out his phone, search up the highlight and take in the moment again. “Relive it, replay it, all the ‘re’s,” he said.“If ever I need a little boost, I got something to pull from, from my archives,” Davis said. “That’s always nice.”Davis feels like he’s 25, not 38. A mindset is all it is, Davis said. He doesn’t wake up with aches and pains like other people his age. It’s more about preparation now, Davis admitted. When he was younger, he could get away with showing up and not worrying about stretching or diet plans.“He does pretty good to be 38. He looks outstanding,” Blanco said. “I was just talking to him about it, it’s amazing. He works pretty hard, every single day and his work ethic is amazing.”Anna Henderson | Digital Design EditorHis veteran status puts him in a mentoring role, something that he said is just who he is. “OTJ” is what Davis called his method: “On the job training.” If he sees something, he’ll address it with the teammate who needs to hear it, nothing more.At Syracuse Mets’ media day, the questions went back-and-forth about Davis’ age and speed. An older player would lose quickness, a reporter suggested. Davis hasn’t started slowing down, though. Gómez and Blanco aren’t speed slouches themselves, combining for 859 professional steals. But as the Mets’ oldest outfielder, Davis still gets hounded about how old he is.“I think they try to joke on me, but until they can run as fast as me,” Davis paused, then winked and grinned. “I’m doing all the laughing.” Comments Published on April 9, 2019 at 10:52 pm Contact Billy: firstname.lastname@example.org | @Wheyen3

Last Updated: 23rd August, 2020 10:03 IST All Blacks Coach Backs Australia’s Super Rugby Teams All Blacks coach Ian Foster has strongly backed Australian involvement in any new Super Rugby competition created next year or after the COVID-19 pandemic COMMENT LIVE TV First Published: 23rd August, 2020 10:03 IST WATCH US LIVE SUBSCRIBE TO US Written By Associated Press Television News All Blacks coach Ian Foster has strongly backed Australian involvement in any new Super Rugby competition created next year or after the COVID-19 pandemic.Relations between New Zealand and Australia have soured since the publication of a New Zealand Rugby review which recommended only two Australian teams be invited to join an eight-team tournament which might replace the existing Super Rugby competition from as early as 2021. All five New Zealand teams would remain, along with a new Pacific Islands team.Rugby Australia was angered by the recommendation, calling it paternalistic. If a tournament was organized along the lines suggested, Australia would lose three of its current Super Rugby teams.New Zealand Rugby has been largely unapologetic. For some time NZR has felt the poor form of Australia’s teams has been discouraging to fans and damaging to Super Rugby. It argues that after the financial hit rugby has taken during the pandemic, future tournaments will have to maximize spectator appeal.Rugby Australia has called for patience, saying Australian teams will improve given time but New Zealand is sceptical.Foster stepped into the debate Sunday as a diplomat, insisting he has seen improvement in Australian teams during their domestic Super Rugby tournament this season. Both Australia and New Zealand organized domestic Super Rugby tournaments when the coronavirus pandemic ended the full Super Rugby season in March.“The difference between their first couple of rounds to their last couple has been dramatic,” Foster said. “From an All Blacks coach’s perspective we’ve seen a significant rise in standard in their competition. That bodes well for a Super competition but also for us as we head into a Bledisloe series.”While New Zealand’s Super Rugby Aoteroa was hugely popular with fans, it is not seen as sustainable. Foster said a new format is needed and Australia should be part of any solution“A lot of work is in place saying ‘what does a really sustainable competition look like?’,” he said. “Everyone is taking their time to get that right.“It’s unlikely to happen in 2021 anyway. What we do know is if we get the formula right we’ve got the ability to get our fans engaged and the players excited, then we’re going to continue to get the product we saw this year.“We need variety in the competition. We’ve got five really strong franchises here and enough talent to fill that five. But adding a few more from Australia in whatever format and whatever number is a logical step.”Image credits: AP FOLLOW US
