Actress Evan Rachel Wood on Twitter ‘I have been raped’

NEW YORK - “Westworld” actress Evan Rachel Wood said on Tuesday she was taking a break from social media, a day after revealing on Twitter that she had been sexually abused twice. In a Rolling Stone interview published this month, the star discussed her suicide attempt at age 22 and being subjected to “physical, psychological, sexual” abuse. Wood, 29, tweeted late on Monday she could not stay silent any longer “given the state our world is in with its blatant bigotry and sexism.” However, she also said she had been hesitant to share her story in the past because she did not want to be accused of doing it for atten-

tion. “I had the urge to not make it a sob story, to not make it about me,” she wrote using her verified Twitter handle (@evanrachelwood). In the post, which was shared more than one thousand times, Wood said she had been “raped by a significant other while we were together. And

Thousands squeeze into church, stadium to mourn tragic crash

CHAPECO — Thousands squeezed into Chapeco’s cathedral and even more packed a stadium to mourn the death of 71 people in a plane crash, 19 of them members of the Chapecoense club who had been on the brink of soccer greatness.

on a separate occasion, by the owner of a bar”. She said that the attacks happened “many, many years ago” but did not provide an exact date. “I am still standing. I am alive. I am happy. I am strong. But I am still not OK,” Wood wrote. “I think it’s important for people to know that, for survivors to know that, and that the pressure to just get over it already, should be lifted.” Wood is known for her roles in “Thirteen”, “The Ides of March” and “The Wrestler”, as well as HBO series “Westworld” and “Mildred Pierce”.

“To lose (almost) all of them in such a tragic way, totally destroyed our city and each one of us,” Carla Vilembrini said late Tuesday, standing outside Santo Antonio Cathedral. She was dressed like so many others — in the club’s green and white jerseys. Chapecoense’s fantasy season ended on a muddy Colombian mountainside late Monday when a chartered aircraft crashed south of Medellin. Only six of the 77 passengers and crew survived, three of them players. The club was having the best season in its 43-year history, heading to the first of two matches in the final of the Copa Sudamericana, the continent’s No. 2 club tournament. Continued to page 6

Eternal Youth In A Bottle

As for Benoa Bay reclamation issue

Duly parliament adopts coastal communities’ aspiration

The latest breakthrough in antiaging is now available at the BIMC Hospital CosMedic Centre in Nusa Dua. This cutting-edge technology is also known “growth factor” or GF and is obtainable in the convenient forms of serums and skincare for topical application. But first, what are growth factors? Every cell in your skin produces certain proteins known as growth factors, which are responsible for a variety of activities including growth, repair and maintenance of healthy skin. As you age,

your body would produce less and less growth factors, resulting in the breakdown of collagen. This can now be reversed with the use of GF, which works with cytokines and antioxidants to repair, resurface and regenerate aging, damaged skin for a youthful, vibrant complexion without expensive and painful plastic or cosmetic surgery. The CosMedic Centre has found that the best source of GF for skin comes from human fibroblast cells. This finding has been supported by numerous scientific publications

DENPASAR - Different stance is demonstrated by people’s representatives in charge of the Bali House of Representatives. If the legislators of Bali only forwarded people’s aspiration that rejects the Benoa Bay reclamation to the president, then the representatives of Balinese people in the central House of Representatives even expressly rejected and asked the Benoa Bay reclamation plan to be terminated. “Now, the entire customary villages in the coastal areas have declared their stance to reject the Benoa Bay reclamation, except for one customary village that has not. However, its residents and the youth have expressed their stance by installing billboard. On that account, Made Urip, a member of the central House of Representatives from Bali has conveyed the people’s aspirations that firmly rejected it,” said Chairman of the LPM Tanjung Benoa, I Kadek Duarsa, when confirmed on Tuesday (Nov. 29). In contrast to the stance of the member of the central House of Representatives, added Duarsa, the stance of the Bali House of Representatives is still questionable. Is it true that Bali House of Representatives has positioned itself as the people’s representatives? Actually, the people of customary village in the coastal areas have expressed their The beautiful Benoa Bays

rejection against the Benoa Bay reclamation. Similarly, the customary people coalesced in the Pasubayan (association) of customary village rejecting Benoa Bay reclamation has already stated their stance statement for several times to the Bali House of Representatives. “However, the Bali House of Representatives only give open and normative statement by conveying it to the president. Until now, we are still in doubt with the Bali House of Representatives whether they know about the people’s aspirations or not. They should come down to customary villages, whether or not they truly express the opposition,” he explained. Duarsa added that aspirations of the coastal communities should be adopted as well in the issuance of the environmental impact analysis (EIA) of the Benoa Bay reclamation following the impacts to be experienced by coastal communities as a result of the reclamation. Environmental preservation must be put forward, lest there are other interests in disguise. Moreover, there are material interests by selling ‘home,’ environment and Balinese culture. “As coastal residents, we are very concerned with the environment, nature and culture of our own. I personally do not want there are things beyond environmental, cultural and our natural preservation ridden with illogical interests or personal interests, political and even material interests. Hopefully, there is nothing like that,” he said.

Coordinator of the pasubayan, I Wayan Swarsa, said that if the legislators really position themselves as people’s representatives, the real aspirations on the rejection of Balinese customary community will get the attention of the central House of Representatives and Bali House of Representatives. Moreover, the aspiration revealed by the Pasubayan represents not a small number of customary communities. “It should also become the basis for the rejection or at least to cancel or move (the reclamation) to appropriate location. In other words, it is really a rejection of customary people serving as the basis for legislators of the central House of Representatives as implementation of the people’s representatives,” said chief of Kuta customary village. Swarsa added that if the reclamation plan is forced by the government and supported by the parliament, and goes up against the existing facts, he is confident it will make Bali increasingly less conducive in the future. On that account, even though the legislators are from political parties, the real people’s aspirations on the rejection against the reclamation should be still fought. “Those obviously rejecting are clearly visible, who supports? At most, they are only a few. So far, there are no customary village institutions expressing their support to the reclamation. Legislators are not necessarily political, but as part of the community they do not regard of what political party they come from,” he concluded. (kmb32) IBP/file

Having no building permit

Hotel Maha Ungasan threatened to be sealed

MANGUPURA - Hotel Maha Ungasan is threatened to be sealed by the Badung municipal police. It happens because the tourist accommodation located at Ungasan village, South Kuta, has not owned yet a building permit (IMB) and hotel operational permit. This issue emerged in a meeting at the office of the municipal police

with a number of agencies such as the Badung municipal police, integrated licensing office (BPPT), police officers and representative of the hotel imposed with the sealing sanction, Tuesday (Nov. 29). “We have done a persuasive action by summoning and making coordination with the hotel management so that they could submit the

licensing first before opening the hotel. Moreover, we have reprimanded for three times before taking decisive action,” said Chief of Badung Municipal Police, Ketut Martha. According to him, such action has been in accordance with the instruction of the regent of Badung, No.600/2016 dated on November 1, 2016. As planned, the execution

will be carried out in December. “We will carry out the sealing on December 5, 2016. Similarly, we have informed to the three lawyers of hotel owner related to the sealing action,” he explained. Related to the fears of opposition by the hotel management, Ketut Martha admitted not to give a damn. His agency will team up

with police authorities to secure the enforcement so that the hotel sealing will be conducive. “This action has been in conformity with judicial aspects and the orders of superiors. Whether they will file a lawsuit later on, we are also ready. Obviously, the hotel is operating without permission,” he concluded. (kmb27)

Injections, implants tested as new weapons to prevent HIV

LONDON - Scientists are taking the battle to prevent HIV to the next level with large-scale trials set to start using injections to protect vulnerable groups such as gay men and women in Africa for at least two months. Further down the road, the hope is to produce matchstick-sized implants containing slow-release drugs - similar to existing underthe-skin contraceptive devices - that could offer year-long protection. Companies with drugs involved include GlaxoSmithKline , Gilead Sciences and Merck. The initiatives build on the success of Gilead’s once-daily pill Truvada, which has proved remarkably effective at stopping HIV infection during sex. Clinical studies show such pre-exposure prophylaxis, or PrEP, can cut the risk of catching the virus by more than 90 percent,

as long as people take their pills regularly. The problem is many do not. Some women in trials in Africa, for example, said they were reluctant to have HIV tablets in the house for fear of what partners or neighbours would think. An injection given in a clinic, experts argue, would add privacy and ensure steady drug levels. An implant in the arm might even combine contraception and HIV protection in one go. “The more options there are the better and I think for some individuals injections will be great,”

said Jean-Michel Molina, professor of infectious diseases at Hospital Saint-Louis in Paris. “Now that we know antiretrovirals have great potential to prevent HIV infections, it is time to really assess other ways to deliver these drugs.” The need remains acute. Despite treatment advances that have slashed AIDS deaths, around 1.9 million people still catch HIV each year - a number that hasn’t budged since 2010. New infections among gay men are actually increasing. The United Nations AIDS programme warned last week that the problem now threatened progress in ending the global epidemic, while the World Health Organization has recommended PrEP for all groups at substantial risk of HIV infection.

Japan orders major poultry cull after firstbird flu outbreak in nearly two years

TOKYO - Japan has started culling more than 300,000 chickens and ducks after the discovery of a highly contagious form of bird flu on farms in the north of the country, local officials said. The bird flu outbreaks are the first in nearly two years in Japan and news of the cullings boosted shares in some infection-control product makers. In Niigata prefecture north of Tokyo, authorities on Tuesday started culling about 310,000 chickens at a farm in the village of Sekikawa after 40 birds were found dead from H5 bird flu, a prefectural official told Reuters by telephone. The cull will continue until Dec. 2, the official said. Further north in the prefecture of Aomori, about 16,500 ducks were being culled in the city of the same name after some tested positive for bird flu, according to a statement on the prefecture’s website. This is the first time that highly pathogenic avian influenza has been confirmed in Aomori prefecture, it said. The agriculture ministry said the outbreaks are the first for nearly two years in poultry farms in Japan. Taiko Pharmaceutical Co, which makes infection-control products, surged 3.2 percent, and mask maker Daiwabo Holdings, jumped 5.1 percent. Protective clothing maker Azearth Corp, which is listed on the Tokyo Stock Exchange’s second section, soared 17 percent to its daily limit of 681 yen. Meanwhile, grilled-chicken restaurant operator Torikizoku Co dropped

2.8 percent. “The news about bird flu is affecting these shares, but these moves tend to be short-lived,” said Mitsushige Akino, chief fund manager at Ichiyoshi Asset Management. South Korea last Friday announced a temporary nationwide standstill order for poultry farms and related transport over the weekend in a bid to contain a spread of H5N6 bird flu, a severe strain of the disease. Another severe strain of bird flu, H5N8, has hit several countries in Europe and led to the culling of thousands of poultry after being detected in wild ducks in Northern France. In recent weeks there have also been outbreaks in the Netherlands, Switzerland, Romania and Germany. Dutch authorities destroyed about 190,000 ducks on Saturday at six farms following an avian flu outbreak. Farmers located in humid regions, where the risk of transmission is higher, are advised by health authorities to keep poultry flocks indoors or apply safety nets preventing contact with wildbirds. The H5N8 virus has never been detected in humans but it led to the culling of millions of farmbirds in Asia, mainly South Korea, in 2014 before spreading to Europe. The World Organization for Animal Health had warned in an interview with Reuters mid-November that more outbreaks of H5N8 were likely in Europe as wild birds believed to transmit the virus migrate southward.

The gabion placed at Lovina

Lovina Beach installed with gabion to retain waves

SINGARAJA - The surface of Lovina Beach, Kalibukbuk, Singaraja, erodes by degrees. This impact is caused by depletion of upper land surface or coastal degradation. Coastal protection structure or gabion is used to prevent coastal area from erosion and dampen the blow of the waves. The edge area of Lovina Beach overlooking The Lovina Bali is now installing gabion retaining walls. The rectangular gabion along nearly five meters is arranged in stacks. This gabion pilot project can maintain the stability of waves while minimizing the reduction of sea sand on the seashore. In fact, the gabion technique is complained by people through social media in the Buleleng Jengah Facebook group. Gabion construction of The Lovina Bali is considered to disturb the convenience of local residents and form a private area of the hotel. Responding to the misconcep-

tions of the gabion installed a week ago, the management of The Lovina Bali finally spoke about the natural condition experienced by Lovina in the past few years. The sandy beach overlooking The Lovina Bali formerly had a wide enough area, but gradually it shrinks as exposed to abrasion from east to west. “We’re trying to rescue the beaches around our hotel. We hope that guests coming to Singaraja could sunbathe and swim to enjoy

the beach. So, we maintain the nature, not to control the beach,” said General Manager of The Lovina Bali, Dwi Dharmawijaya, when met on Tuesday (Nov. 29) together with the HRD of The Lovina Bali, Nyoman Redita and owner of The Lovina Bali, Robert Karl Stahl. According to him, the hotel management has even involved a British consultant who once did a project in Dubai that advised the application of gabion. One component of the gabion on the west side near The Lovina Bali is not a permanent structure and can be dismantled any time. Conversely, the gabion is aimed to protect the sand and prevent from the abrasion. “So, it is very eco-friendly and unlike the application of concrete construction. We never block pub-

MANGUPURA - After clubbing in a discotheque on Jalan Legian, Kuta, Limara Deana Holmes, 17, from Australia passed through Jalan Poppies I Gang Bedugul heading for her accommodation at Hotel Kuta Town House, Sunday (Nov. 27). At that time, the iPhone held by this student was snatched by the suspect Kiki Irfani, 16. The suspect Kiki from Sukabumi, West Java, was beaten by residents but managed to escape with his friend, Ketut Arta. “The suspect Kiki was arrested by Operations team led by Budi Artama at his boarding house on Jalan Tukad Bilok, South Denpasar,

while his friend, Ketut Arta, is still being pursued. Their motorcycle was left at the scene and was ruined by residents,” said Chief of Kuta Police, I Wayan Sumara, accompanied by chief of Criminal Investigation Unit Putu Budi Artama, Tuesday (Nov. 29). Results of the investigation, said the police chief, mentioned that at 03:30 am the victim with a friend was after clubbing at a discotheque on Jalan Legian, Kuta. Then, they passed through Jalan Poppies I and headed for the hotel where they were staying. “When almost getting to the ho-

tel, the victim took her iPhone 6 out of the bag. Suddenly a motorcycle came ridden by the culprit and immediately approached the victim,” said Chief Sumara. The suspect Kiki instantly snatched the iPhone held by the victim. The victim was shocked and immediately shouted: “My phone is stolen.” Scream of the victim was so loud so that it was heard by hotel security guard. The security guard promptly came out and tried to catch both snatchers. “They had to struggle. Both snatchers fell down from their motorcycle,” he affirmed.

lic road access. We installed it a week ago and the first gabion has brought in sea sand to assemble. Previously, sea-water once came up to western side of the hotel courtyard,” he said. He added that the environmental conservation is made through gabion installation with a length of nearly five meters. Negative comments on the hotel management by netizens in social media wanted to get more openness about the purpose of the environmental conservation against the coastal erosion. “A number of children are exercising and playing on the beach in front of our hotel every afternoon. Besides, we often assist local fishermen in the form of CSR,” he added. In the meantime, headman of

Kalibukbuk, Ketut Suka, said that hotel management does not only pursue profits, but has also been able to keep the environment clean. The management of The Lovina Bali does not violate any rules. On the contrary, it has been contributing to the protection of the environment from degradation of coastal beaches. Without the installation of gabion, the sea sand will move slowly to the west or precisely near the Dolphin statue of Lovina. “Concern of the hotel has been showed by preserving the environment. Businessmen go hand in hand comfortably in synergy with the community of Kalibukbuk. I appreciate positively to the initiative of the entrepreneur rescuing the environment and sanitation in the Lovina Beach areas,” he said. (kmb34)

Residents seeing the incident beat up the culprits getting involved. But unfortunately, they managed to escape, but the Honda Beat motorcycle formerly used was left at the scene. Based on the result of checking against the license plate of the motorcycle, continued Sumara, the residence of Kiki could be tracked namely on Jalan Tukad Bilok Gang Udang, Denpasar. Budi together with his personnel directly came to the location and arrested the suspect who has a wife and children. To the officers, this motorcycle washing attendant mentioned that

Arta stayed on Jalan Tukad Citarum. However, when checked to the location he was not found. Results of the examination indicated that the suspect Kiki admitted to have snatched foreigners for two times. They are specifically targeting foreign travelers because their belongings are definitely nice and expensive. “We are still developing this case. We suspect if they have taken action for more than twice. We also appeal to the victims that have been snatched by this culprit to immediately report to Kuta Police station,” he said. (kmb36)

Peace talks on Ukraine end without agreement

Pecatu villagers hold procession to invoke rain

PECATU village in South Kuta denoting a dry and barren area, in fact has a unique tradition of invoking rain. This tradition has lasted for generations in the form pemelastian procession attended by hundreds of Pecatu villagers on Labuan Sait Beach, Tuesday (Nov. 29).

MINSK - Four-way talks on ending a separatist conflict in eastern Ukraine finished without a breakthrough on Tuesday, with German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier declaring that “lip service” statements were not enough to achieve lasting peace. Amid low expectations, the foreign ministers of Germany, France, Ukraine and Russia met in the Belarussian capital to discuss ways of implementing last year’s Minsk ceasefire accord forUkraine’s Donbass region.

Chief of Pecatu customary village, I Made Sumerta, said that a series of the pemelastian procession was started on November 14 in the form of ngaturin procession. Then, on November 22 was followed by ngusaba ceremony. “Today, we organize pemelastian on the Labuan Sait Beach. It aims at appealing to deities so that they could immediately help drop off rain, and then people can start planting,” he said. In addition, added Sumerta, on the sidelines of the ceremony was also held ngaturin ritual at each clan temple. This ritual has been practiced according to tradition from time immemorial held annually in the sasih kalima (November). “This pemelastian is also resumed by inviting the deities (nedunang) to consult in order to synchronize the ceremonial procession physically and psychically,” he added. In this case, the nedunang procession is meant to inquire whether the ceremony has been properly executed or not and asked about if there are any deficiencies. “Thus, we in the physical realm with all the limitations can organize this ceremony as the expectations,” he said. The pemelastian showed off a spiritual nuance amid the procession taking place. Dozens of residents fell into trance alternately while stabbing a kris dagger into their body parts. (kmb23)

Tolire Lake, the Beautiful Panoramic Lake Surrounded with Legends

IBP/kmb

A brilliantly blue volcanic lake, Tolire lake is set in a crater at the foot of Mt Gamalama, on the island of Ternate, North Maluku Province. The Lake is comprised of two lakes, roughly 200 meters apart: Tolire Lamo, The Greater Tolire Lake, and Tolirelci, the Small Tolire. The Great Lake is almost perfectly round, somewhat resembling a giant pan. Its mystical waters change colors with the seasons, from a bright blue during the summer, to a dark green or brown throughout the rainy season. About 50 meters below the lip of the crater where in it lies, Tolire Lake spans about 5 hectares, yet its depth remains unknown. Some believe that it leads directly to the Ternate Sea. The lakes are freshwater, and home to many species of birds and fish. Due to the belief in invisible crocodile inhabitants,

however, it is used for neither hunting nor fishing. Nevertheless, a relaxing stroll from atop the crater to enjoy the beautiful panoramic view is a lovely way to spend your time in Tolire. As with many a volcanic lake, Tolire is surrounded by many legends. One such legend tells of a man who impregnated his own daughter. In their fury for such a deed, the gods cursed them, transforming the father into the Great Tolire Lake, and his daughter into the lesser one. Local folklore tells that the bottom of the lake is covered in treasure belonging to the bygone Ternate Kingdom. Others believe that the lake is inhabited and guarded by invisible crocodiles, measuring a dozen meters in length, as well as an even larger, white crocodile, which only occasionally makes an appearance.

According to local belief, you can try to throw a stone into the lake, but no matter how hard your try: it will never touch the surface of the water. Stones are sold around the area, at about 5 stones for Rp 1,000. That way, visitors to the area can try their luck at throwing stones into the river and see if any can reach the surface before being devoured by the lake’s invisible guardians.

Germany’s Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier (L) and his French counterpart JeanMarc Ayrault attend a news briefing after the talks on the crisis in eastern Ukraine in Minsk, Belarus, November 29, 2016.

Steinmeier said both Ukraine and Russia had hardened their positions and there was no political agreement in sight on holding local elections in Donbass, as demanded by Russia and the Kremlin-backed separatists. “It was very tedious again today,” Steinmeier said. “Pure lip service will not be enough to solve this conflict.” Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov meanwhile pushed back on a Ukrainian proposal to allow armed OSCE monitors in Donbass. “There weren’t any breakthroughs today. The Minsk agreements are stalled -- we’re not managing to agree on the sequence of steps,” Lavrov told reporters. Highlighting some positives, Steinmeier did, however, say the International Red Cross could help facilitate a significant exchange of prisoners before the end of the year and was optimistic about more phased troops withdrawals taking place.

agreement struck in Minsk last year to end fighting between Ukrainian troops and Russian-backed separatists in eastern Ukraine. Separatist violence there has killed nearly 10,000 people since it erupted in 2014. Kiev and the West accuse Russia of stoking the separatist movement and aiding the rebels. Western nations have imposed economic sanctions on Moscow. The Kremlin denies these charges, however, and accuses Ukraine of perpetuating the violence and violating the Minsk deal. French Foreign Minister JeanMarc Ayrault said there was still a long way to go on implementing the Minsk process. Speaking to Reuters ahead of the talks, he also called for Europe to stand firm on sanctions against Russia. With one eye on the presidential election race back home, where front runner Francois Fillon favours lifting the sanctions, Ayrault said Russia was playing a waiting game to allow Western divisions on the Ukraine crisis to widen.

Germany’s Merkel opposes new talks with Turkey on EU accession - Bild

BERLIN - German Chancellor Angela Merkel told parliamentary members of her conservative Christian Democrats on Tuesday that she opposed opening new negotiations with Turkey as part of its quest to join the European Union, the Bild newspaper reported. That means the discussions are effectively over, the newspaper reported in Wednesday editions, citing sources who participated in the party meeting. Merkel recommended spelling that out to voters who asked about the party’s position onTurkey, the newspaper said. Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan on Tuesday said his country has not yet “closed the book” on the EU after the European Parliament recommended freezing accession talks last week, but said Ankara had other options with other partners. The European Parliament last week voted 479 to 37 for a non-binding motion to temporarily halt

membership talks with Turkey because of its “disproportionate” reaction to the failed July 15 coup. German officials have been critical of Erdogan’s crackdown on dissidents and journalists after the coup attempt, although Merkel - mindful of the millions of refugees still living in Turkey - on Friday underscored the need for both Turkey and the EU to honour their commitments to each other. Erdogan has suggested that he might scrap a deal to keep hundreds of thousands of migrants inside Turkey’s borders in return for the promise of accelerated EU membership talks, visa-free travel for Turks in Europe and financial aid. Turkish authorities have detained or dismissed more than 125,000 people - including soldiers, academics, judges, journalists and Kurdish leaders - over their alleged backing for the coup, in what opponents, rights groups and some Western allies say is an attempt to crush all dissent.

JAKARTA - Indonesias Finance Minister Sri Mulyani has asked civil servants in her ministry to take steps to curb all corruption. The ministry has intensified its supervision against corruption and will evaluate the cases of those detained by the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) for involvement in graft. “We have strengthened (supervision) with the cooperation of the internal obedience directorate, intelligence and other elements, and will carry out evaluation in respective units,” Sri Mulyani assured while speaking at the Risk and Governance Summit (RGS) 2016 here on Monday. The event was held under the theme, “Ethical Governance: The Soul of Sustainability.” The minister expressed her disappointment with the fact that an official of the Taxation Directorate General was arrested by the KPK last Monday for alleged corruption. The taxation official, identified by his initials HS, was arrested by the anti-graft agency at a time when the government has been implementing a tax amnesty scheme. HS betrayed the principles of governance, efficiency and honesty applied by the Finance Ministry in general and the taxation directorate general in particular, she lamented, adding that publics trust was needed for successful implementation of the tax amnesty program.

SINGAPORE - For the first time since 2008, OPEC is set to strike a deal to cut oil output that may boost prices. It may also give itself a bloody nose in Asia, where big buyers are ramping up supplies from elsewhere and say they don’t want to pay more for fuel.

Fillon’s economic shock therapy for France risks side effects

REUTERS/Jacky Naegelen

Francois Fillon, member of Les Republicains political party and 2017 presidential candidate of the French centre-right, arrives to attend the political council of Les Republicains political party at their headquarters in Paris, France, November 29, 2016.

PARIS - On paper, French presidential favourite Francois Fillon’s free-market plans to cut business taxes, relax labour laws and shrink the public sector should give corporate France a shot in the arm and boost economic growth. But his reforms are likely to come at the cost of showdowns with labour unions and publicsector workers who face losing jobs in a country where strikes can often drag on for several weeks if not months. He could also clash with Berlin over a ballooning budget deficit, while a sales tax hike that would help pay for his other plans risks dampening consumer spending. Fillon, an admirer of late British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, is the centre-right candidate for the presidential election in May, when he will go up against far-right

leader Marine Le Pen and a yet-tobe selected Socialist opponent. If victorious, he would have a popular mandate to enact his free-market reforms following deep disenchantment with Socialist President Francois Hollande’s failure to fulfil pledges to slash high unemployment of about 10 percent and deliver growth. Fillon says he would introduce 50 billion euros ($53 billion) in tax cuts - worth about 2.5 percent of GDP - with most of that targeting companies’ payroll tax. The loss of state revenue would be partially offset with a 2 percentage point increase in value-added sales tax, by far the government’s biggest source of tax revenue. Economists liken the move to a currency devaluation - something outside French authorities’ power as a member of the euro

zone - because firms could sell at more competitive prices abroad while importers face higher prices, thus improving the overall terms France trades on with the rest of the world. “The aim is to rebalance France’s growth model towards exports and away from solely relying on consumption,” said economist Emmanuel Jessua at Coe-Rexecode think tank. There are precedents in France, notably when conservative former President Nicolas Sarkozy, with Fillon as his prime minister, tried to cut payroll taxes in the final months of his term in 2011. Sarkozy’s successor Hollande unpicked the programme once he came to office and introduced instead a tax credit scheme to reduce the payroll taxes companies pay. (rtr)

Minister Sri Mulyani asks civil servants to help stop corruption

As OPEC price hike looms, Asia’s big oil buyers may shop elsewhere The Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) meets on Wednesday to hammer out a deal to prop up prices that have halved since 2014. As they gather, tanker shipments to Asia from non-OPEC sources like Alaska, Azerbaijan, and the North Sea are growing, according to shipping data in Thomson Reuters Eikon. Buyers in Asia, which alone uses a third of the world’s oil supply, have watched with concern as OPEC suppliers - their biggest - openly discuss propping up prices. With non-OPEC supplies readily available, they say they’ll consider exploring new sources if the cartel’s price is no longer right. “For us, the current price levels look to be appropriate for both sides (buyers and producers),” said Eiichiro Kitahara, Executive Officer at major Japanese refinery TonenGeneral Sekiyu. “Our company aims to avoid depending highly on certain suppliers, and we may seek new (supply) opportunities,” Kitahara said, though like other executives he cautioned against expectations of any sudden change in supply trends among buyers.

President Jokowi promotes tourism investment

JAKARTA - There is vast potential for investment in Indonesias tourism sector, President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) has told global investors. “Indonesia has thousands of beautiful places to visit, such as Bali, Raja Ampat in Papua, Mandalika in West Nusa Tenggara, and Komodo island in East Nusa Tenggara,” he remarked at the Forbes Global CEO Conference at the Shangri-la Hotel here on Tuesday. Outside Bali, the potential to develop tourism is still huge, he said.

To boost economic growth through tourism, Garuda Indonesia, the countrys state airline, has expanded direct flight services from countries with the biggest tourist potential to other places in Indonesia such as Manado in North Sulawesi. “In less than a year, the number of tourists from China to Manado has increased to 12,000 per month,”

Jokowi revealed. Indonesia is now building land, sea, and air transportation infrastructure to ease the flow of goods and people. The effort has been focused on remote places and border regions such as Papua and Miangas to increase the contribution of these regions in the countrys economic growth.

Indonesia-Australia education partnership builds 2,725 schools: Minister Effendy

JAKARTA - Indonesia and Australia have built 2,725 junior high schools in 30 provinces under education partnership programs over the last 10 years, Education and Culture Minister Muhadjir Effendy said. “The government is under obligation to meet childrens right to have basic education. We have received continuous support from Australia through this partnership,” he said at

the 10th anniversary of IndonesiaAustralia education partnership here on Tuesday. Muhadjir informed that these schools could accommodate 366,300 students in 10,185 classrooms. During the decade for which the program has been running, Australia provided a total A$353 million worth of funds, comprising A$197 million in soft loans and A$156 million in grants.

“The partnership between Indonesia and Australia will be continued as it is based on the principle of achieving mutual prosperity,” he stated. Meanwhile, Australias Deputy Ambassador Justin Lee noted that the partnership program has contributed to 12.04 percent increase in gross participation rate (APK) at junior high school level in Indonesia, from 88.68 percent in 2006 to

100.7 percent in 2015. APK is the ratio for active students in a certain grade compared to population at an age group corresponding to that level. Lee disclosed that Australias next target is to focus on empowerment of teachers and principals in Indonesia. The Indonesia-Australia education partnership to build schools was launched in 2006, after the completion of the reconstruction

program undertaken in the wake of the deadly tsunami that had hit Aceh and West Sumatra. The program was started with Australia-Indonesia Basic Education program (AIBEP) in 20062009 under which 1,570 junior high schools, comprising 835 new regular school buildings and 735 one-roof schools for elementary and junior high school students, were built.

Soccer crash survivors undergo operations in Colombia, probe begins

LA UNION - Doctors treated traumatized survivors and an investigation was to get underway on Wednesday into an air crash that killed 71 people and wiped out Brazil’s Chapecoense soccer team en route to a cup final in Colombia. Only six people - three players, a journalist and two crew members - survived the disaster on Monday night when Chapecoense’s charter plane hit a mountain en route to their Copa Sudamericana showdown in Medellin city. All were being treated at local hospitals. Of the players, goalkeeper Jackson Follmann was recovering from the amputation of his right leg, doctors said. Defender Helio Neto remained in intensive care with severe trauma to his skull, thorax and lungs. Fellow defender Alan Ruschel had spine surgery. Investigators from Brazil were flying in to join Colombian counterparts checking two black boxes from the crash site on a muddy

hillside in wooded highlands near La Union town. Soldiers guarded the wreckage overnight after rescuers left, and investigators were to start work at first light. Bolivia, where the charter company LAMIA was based, and the United Kingdom, also sent in experts to help the probe. Prior to crashing, the BAe 146 had radioed it was having electrical problems, and weather conditions were poor - but there was still no official word on the cause. Locals are accustomed to planes flying overhead at all hours, but many were disturbed by the massive crash noise that interrupted their sleep and evening television. “It came over my house, but there was no noise, the engine must

have gone,” said Nancy Munoz, 35, who grows strawberries in the area. “I thought it was a bomb, because the FARC rebels used to attack military infrastructure here. Then we heard the rescuers arriving,” said her husband Fabian. By nightfall on Tuesday, rescuers had recovered most of the bodies which were to be repatriated to Brazil and to Bolivia, where all the plane’s nine-person crew were from. Soccer-mad Brazil declared three days of mourning. Chapecoense’s opponents, Atletico Nacional of Medellin, asked for the tournament to be awarded to the Brazilians in honor of the dead. Fellow top division Brazilian sides also showed solidarity, offering loan players to Chapecoense and urging the national federation to give it a three-year stay against relegation while the club got back on its feet.

Thousands... From page 1

Distraught residents of this southern Brazilian city of 200,000 people, an agribusiness center near the Argentina border, wandered the streets around the stadium — known as Arena Conda — in stunned silence. “The city is very quiet,” businessman Cecilio Hans said. “People will only believe once the bodies start to arrive.” On social media, haunting last photos showed the smiling players boarding the flight to Colombia for their match with Atletico Nacional. In one photo, the team celebrated a last-minute save by goalkeeper Danilo only a week ago against the Argentine club San Lorenzo. The save guaranteed Chapecoense a spot in the final — and ultimately cost Danilo his life in the crash. “I can’t still believe it,” Alan Heinz said inside the stadium, his body pressed against the fence that separates fans from the field. This time the field was filled by a religious service and prayers for the dead. “I was preparing for the best day of my life, and now I don’t know what my life will be after this,” he said. As recently as 2009, the club known as Chape was playing in Brazil’s fourth division, but it won promotion to the top league in 2014 for the first time since the 1970s. Victories over San Lorenzo and Independente — two of Argentina’s fiercest squads — as well as the Colombian club Junior took the team to the Copa Sudamericana finals, the equivalent of the UEFA Europa League tournament. Few of the players had an international profile, and none had any appearances with Brazil’s glitzy national team. Most had played all

over Brazil and Latin America. Only a few had ever reached Europe, like Cleber Santana, who played for Atletico Madrid in 2007-10. Chape strikers Bruno Rangel and Kempes, both 34, were among the top scorers in the Brazilian league, with 10 and nine goals, respectively. The only players to survive were goalkeeper Jakson Follmann, defender Helio Zampier, commonly known as Neto, and defender-midfielder Alan Ruschel. Coach Caio Junior is credited with Chape’s quick rise, joining the club this year after guiding teams in the Middle East. Born Luiz Carlos Saroli, he coached numerous Brazilian teams, including Palmeiras, Flamengo and Botafogo. He was among the dead. His son, Matheus Saroli, escaped because he didn’t make the flight, saying in a Facebook post that he couldn’t board “because I forgot my passport.” An Argentine player on the club, Alejandro Martinuccio, also missed the flight, because of an injury during a game, he told Argentina’s La Red radio. “I feel deep sadness. The only thing I can ask is prayers for the companions who were on the flight,” he said. Also among the dead were 20 sports journalists, including Mario Sergio Pontes de Paiva, a former player who worked as a commentator for Fox Sports. He played briefly for Brazil’s national team in the early 1980s and had a long career as a midfielder and coach with many Brazilian clubs. He last coached Brazilian club Internacional in 2009 and Ceara in 2010. “This is a very, very sad day for football,” FIFA President Gianni Infantino said in a statement. “At this difficult time our thoughts are with the victims, their families and friends.” (ap)

NEW YORK - U.S. Presidentelect Donald Trump named a vociferous critic ofObamacare and a health policy expert to key appointments on Tuesday to help him repeal and replace President Barack Obama’s signature healthcare program. Republican U.S. Representative Tom Price, an orthopedic surgeon from Georgia, will be Trump’s health and human services secretary, and Seema Verma, the founder of a health policy consulting company, will lead the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, which is part of Health and Human Services and oversees government health programs for the poor and the elderly and insurance standards. Trump, a Republican, also announced his choice on Tuesday of Elaine Chao, labor secretary under President George W. Bush, to serve

as secretary of transportation, saying in a statement her expertise would be an asset “in our mission to rebuild our infrastructure.” The president-elect was expected as early as Wednesday to announce his selection of Goldman Sachs alumnus Steven Mnuchin as Treasury secretary, said a Republican source familiar with the decision. Trump cast Price and Verma as a “dream team” to help him once he takes office on Jan. 20 with his campaign pledge to repeal Obamacare, the health law formally known as the Affordable Care Act. Since its enactment in 2010, it has been a target of Republican attacks. Price has characterized Obamacare as “doing real harm to American families” and has co-sponsored legislation to replace it.

Jack Bobridge

IBP/net

SYDNEY - Australia’s triple world champion Jack Bobridge has retired from professional cycling at the age of 27 as he struggles to cope with rheumatoid arthritis. The national road race champion, who also won silver medals in the team pursuit on the track at the 2012 and 2016 Olympics, was diagnosed with the chronic condition in 2010 and has been managing it with medication. He left his professional team Trek Segafredo in September and said the condition had eased as he lightened his training load.

“Since the (Rio) Games and backing off the training and racing load I’ve found my arthritis has been 100 percent better and I’ve been able to get off all meds as well,” he told the Adelaide Advertiser on Wednesday. “I’m still on the bike three times a week but in terms of the arthritis its been way less stressful on the joints and body. “I’ve had a good career, I’ve got good results and ... I’ve lived a good life in Europe and to me the decision is pretty easy. And since I made it I haven’t thought twice about it.” Bobridge, who broke the world

record for the 4,000m individual pursuit in 2011 and won four Commonwealth Games golds on the track, said riding major tours on the road in Europe this year had confirmed his decision to retire. “I only went back to Europe this year to finalise things in my own head,” he added. “I found it wasn’t enjoyable with the arthritis and the pain. “I haven’t thought am I doing the right thing? And I suppose after a few months of not racing if you haven’t got that hunger I guess you know it’s the right decision.” (rtr)

Sp rt Leicester goal machine Vardy splutters to a halt

LONDON - Twelve months after Jamie Vardy earned worldwide fame for scoring in a record 11th Premier League match in succession, he is suffering a barren spell that mirrors Leicester City’s fall from domestic grace.

The 29-year-old forward, who was signed from minor league Fleetwood Town in 2012 and helped catapult Leicester to a shock Premier League title triumph last season, has gone 15 club games without a goal and may be dropped for Saturday’s relegation tussle at Sunderland. Hollywood film makers planning a movie based on Vardy’s life may have to start thinking about rewriting their rags to riches story, to rags to riches and back again. It is hard to pinpoint the precise reason for Vardy and Leicester’s domestic slide especially as the team have made a spectacular start to their maiden Champions League campaign, securing a place in the knockout phase with a game to spare. Full back Danny Simpson said Premier League opponents were playing deeper against the champions this season, not allowing the sort of balls over the defence that Vardy can exploit with his pace. One thing is for certain, Leicester are missing former midfield talisman N’Golo Kante. The 25-year-old France international is once again at the top of the Premier League table, this time with new club Chelsea. Kante’s tackles and interceptions have been instrumental in Chelsea’s run of seven straight wins and he forms a strong partnership with Nemanja Matic in front of the defence. Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri has so far stood by the misfiring Vardy, his only striker to start every Champions League game and an almost ever-present in the Premier League despite netting twice in 958 minutes this season. But another disappointing display last week, in a fortuitous 2-2 draw against Middlesbrough that has left them two points above the relegation zone, threatens the England international’s place, with new boy Islam Slimani the likely replacement. Vardy was demoted to the

American teenager Perez makes Italian league debut

MILAN — American teenager Joshua Perez has made a strong impression after making his Italian league debut with Fiorentina. The 18-year-old forward from California came on in the second half of Fiorentina’s 4-2 loss to Inter Milan at the San Siro on Monday. Fiorentina coach Paulo Sousa says “with his characteristics he can be a useful player. He can dribble past defenders and he’s pretty strong physically.” The

bench earlier this season against Crystal Palace and West Bromwich Albion but Ranieri suggested that was part of a rotation policy designed around their Champions League involvement.

HIT-AND-HOPE

With qualification for the last 16 now assured, Ranieri may believe it is time to act with the statistics showing his striker is producing 1.2 shots on target per game compared to 3.2 last season. Former England forward Michael Owen sparked a debate about Vardy earlier in the season by saying on BT Sport that he was a hit-and-hope striker. “He’s the type of centre forward or type of finisher that is very much head down and hit it. He goes for power a lot. He’s not necessarily a real cute, classy type of finisher,” said Owen who also acknowledged the value of Vardy’s running. Leicester defender Simpson counters by saying a total of 24 Premier League goals last season tells its own story. “I am backing him 100 percent,” he said of Vardy. “You should see him in training, he smashes them in all over the place. “It is just one of those things, when he gets one he will go and score a load more.” It may be unfair to single out Vardy for criticism when Leicester are collectively underachieving in the Premier League while saving their best for Europe. After 13 games Ranieri’s side are down in 14th spot. At the same stage last year they were top, with 12 more goals, five more wins and 15 more points. Fingers are also being pointed at Algeria playmaker Riyad Mahrez. Mahrez was voted the 201516 Professional Footballers’ Association Player of the Year but he now finds himself heavily marked and confined to deeper positions as negative tactics choke off his supply line to Vardy. The few Leicester supporters who backed their team at 5,000-1 to land the Premier League crown last season might like to consider another bet: 500-1 to win the Champions League and be relegated.

Swiss authorities carry out fresh house searches in FIFA case

ZURICH - Swiss authorities have searched more houses as part of their criminal investigation into suspected corruption in world soccer and have added former FIFA general secretary Urs Linsi to their list of suspects, they said on Wednesday. “The Office of the Attorney General (OAG) of Switzerland confirms that on 23 November 2016 it conducted house searches with the support of the Federal Office of Police (fedpol) at various locations in the German-speaking part of Switzerland,” the OAG said in an emailed statement. “The measures were carried out as part of the investigations relating to a payment of 6.7 million euros ($7.1 million) made in April 2005 by the German Football Association (Deutscher Fussball-Bund, DFB) to Robert Louis-Dreyfus.” That payment which went via soccer’s world governing body FIFA, according to German authorities, to the late Adidas boss Dreyfus, was a return of a loan made years earlier when Germany was bidding to host the 2006 World Cup. It has since been linked with payments to FIFA officials via the account of then World Cup chief and Germany’s former soccer great Franz Beckenbauer. Beckenbauer is under investigation by Swiss authorities, who have opened criminal proceedings against him and two former presidents of the DFB in connection with Germany’s successful bid for the 2006 World Cup. Beckenbauer has previously admitted to making mistakes but has denied wrongdoing. The affair has shocked soccer-mad Germany and forced the resignation of former DFB President Wolfgang Niersbach last year. He has since been banned by FIFA for a year. The DFB’s own report into alleged irregularities over the awarding of the 2006 World Cup was published in March. It said that, while there was no evidence of Germany paying FIFA members in return for votes, payments were made to at least one former FIFA official through a web of accounts involving several other firms or individuals, including Beckenbauer.

Sp rt Leicester goal machine Vardy splutters to a halt

LONDON - Twelve months after Jamie Vardy earned worldwide fame for scoring in a record 11th Premier League match in succession, he is suffering a barren spell that mirrors Leicester City’s fall from domestic grace.

The 29-year-old forward, who was signed from minor league Fleetwood Town in 2012 and helped catapult Leicester to a shock Premier League title triumph last season, has gone 15 club games without a goal and may be dropped for Saturday’s relegation tussle at Sunderland. Hollywood film makers planning a movie based on Vardy’s life may have to start thinking about rewriting their rags to riches story, to rags to riches and back again. It is hard to pinpoint the precise reason for Vardy and Leicester’s domestic slide especially as the team have made a spectacular start to their maiden Champions League campaign, securing a place in the knockout phase with a game to spare. Full back Danny Simpson said Premier League opponents were playing deeper against the champions this season, not allowing the sort of balls over the defence that Vardy can exploit with his pace. One thing is for certain, Leicester are missing former midfield talisman N’Golo Kante. The 25-year-old France international is once again at the top of the Premier League table, this time with new club Chelsea. Kante’s tackles and interceptions have been instrumental in Chelsea’s run of seven straight wins and he forms a strong partnership with Nemanja Matic in front of the defence. Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri has so far stood by the misfiring Vardy, his only striker to start every Champions League game and an almost ever-present in the Premier League despite netting twice in 958 minutes this season. But another disappointing display last week, in a fortuitous 2-2 draw against Middlesbrough that has left them two points above the relegation zone, threatens the England international’s place, with new boy Islam Slimani the likely replacement. Vardy was demoted to the

American teenager Perez makes Italian league debut

MILAN — American teenager Joshua Perez has made a strong impression after making his Italian league debut with Fiorentina. The 18-year-old forward from California came on in the second half of Fiorentina’s 4-2 loss to Inter Milan at the San Siro on Monday. Fiorentina coach Paulo Sousa says “with his characteristics he can be a useful player. He can dribble past defenders and he’s pretty strong physically.” The

bench earlier this season against Crystal Palace and West Bromwich Albion but Ranieri suggested that was part of a rotation policy designed around their Champions League involvement.

HIT-AND-HOPE

With qualification for the last 16 now assured, Ranieri may believe it is time to act with the statistics showing his striker is producing 1.2 shots on target per game compared to 3.2 last season. Former England forward Michael Owen sparked a debate about Vardy earlier in the season by saying on BT Sport that he was a hit-and-hope striker. “He’s the type of centre forward or type of finisher that is very much head down and hit it. He goes for power a lot. He’s not necessarily a real cute, classy type of finisher,” said Owen who also acknowledged the value of Vardy’s running. Leicester defender Simpson counters by saying a total of 24 Premier League goals last season tells its own story. “I am backing him 100 percent,” he said of Vardy. “You should see him in training, he smashes them in all over the place. “It is just one of those things, when he gets one he will go and score a load more.” It may be unfair to single out Vardy for criticism when Leicester are collectively underachieving in the Premier League while saving their best for Europe. After 13 games Ranieri’s side are down in 14th spot. At the same stage last year they were top, with 12 more goals, five more wins and 15 more points. Fingers are also being pointed at Algeria playmaker Riyad Mahrez. Mahrez was voted the 201516 Professional Footballers’ Association Player of the Year but he now finds himself heavily marked and confined to deeper positions as negative tactics choke off his supply line to Vardy. The few Leicester supporters who backed their team at 5,000-1 to land the Premier League crown last season might like to consider another bet: 500-1 to win the Champions League and be relegated.

LONDON - Teenager Lance Stroll will be able to handle the pressure when he makes his debut for Williams as Formula One’s latest hotshot next season, according to 1997 world champion Jacques Villeneuve. The 18-year-old driver, who replaces Brazilian veteran Felipe Massa in the team’s lineup, is set to be the first Canadian to start a grand prix since Villeneuve retired in 2006. “I don’t know if you have pressure when you are 18 or 19. I don’t think you realise. The pressure comes later when you actually realise what you are getting into,” said Villeneuve who won the world championship in his second season at Williams. “At 18, 19 you are still playing even though you’re doing it professionally,” he told Reuters in an interview. “It’s not the same kind of pressure.

Jack Bobridge

IBP/net

SYDNEY - Australia’s triple world champion Jack Bobridge has retired from professional cycling at the age of 27 as he struggles to cope with rheumatoid arthritis. The national road race champion, who also won silver medals in the team pursuit on the track at the 2012 and 2016 Olympics, was diagnosed with the chronic condition in 2010 and has been managing it with medication. He left his professional team Trek Segafredo in September and said the condition had eased as he lightened his training load.

“Since the (Rio) Games and backing off the training and racing load I’ve found my arthritis has been 100 percent better and I’ve been able to get off all meds as well,” he told the Adelaide Advertiser on Wednesday. “I’m still on the bike three times a week but in terms of the arthritis its been way less stressful on the joints and body. “I’ve had a good career, I’ve got good results and ... I’ve lived a good life in Europe and to me the decision is pretty easy. And since I made it I haven’t thought twice about it.” Bobridge, who broke the world

record for the 4,000m individual pursuit in 2011 and won four Commonwealth Games golds on the track, said riding major tours on the road in Europe this year had confirmed his decision to retire. “I only went back to Europe this year to finalise things in my own head,” he added. “I found it wasn’t enjoyable with the arthritis and the pain. “I haven’t thought am I doing the right thing? And I suppose after a few months of not racing if you haven’t got that hunger I guess you know it’s the right decision.” (rtr)

Soccer crash survivors undergo operations in Colombia, probe begins

LA UNION - Doctors treated traumatized survivors and an investigation was to get underway on Wednesday into an air crash that killed 71 people and wiped out Brazil’s Chapecoense soccer team en route to a cup final in Colombia. Only six people - three players, a journalist and two crew members - survived the disaster on Monday night when Chapecoense’s charter plane hit a mountain en route to their Copa Sudamericana showdown in Medellin city. All were being treated at local hospitals. Of the players, goalkeeper Jackson Follmann was recovering from the amputation of his right leg, doctors said. Defender Helio Neto remained in intensive care with severe trauma to his skull, thorax and lungs. Fellow defender Alan Ruschel had spine surgery. Investigators from Brazil were flying in to join Colombian counterparts checking two black boxes from the crash site on a muddy

hillside in wooded highlands near La Union town. Soldiers guarded the wreckage overnight after rescuers left, and investigators were to start work at first light. Bolivia, where the charter company LAMIA was based, and the United Kingdom, also sent in experts to help the probe. Prior to crashing, the BAe 146 had radioed it was having electrical problems, and weather conditions were poor - but there was still no official word on the cause. Locals are accustomed to planes flying overhead at all hours, but many were disturbed by the massive crash noise that interrupted their sleep and evening television. “It came over my house, but there was no noise, the engine must

have gone,” said Nancy Munoz, 35, who grows strawberries in the area. “I thought it was a bomb, because the FARC rebels used to attack military infrastructure here. Then we heard the rescuers arriving,” said her husband Fabian. By nightfall on Tuesday, rescuers had recovered most of the bodies which were to be repatriated to Brazil and to Bolivia, where all the plane’s nine-person crew were from. Soccer-mad Brazil declared three days of mourning. Chapecoense’s opponents, Atletico Nacional of Medellin, asked for the tournament to be awarded to the Brazilians in honor of the dead. Fellow top division Brazilian sides also showed solidarity, offering loan players to Chapecoense and urging the national federation to give it a three-year stay against relegation while the club got back on its feet.

Thousands... From page 1

Distraught residents of this southern Brazilian city of 200,000 people, an agribusiness center near the Argentina border, wandered the streets around the stadium — known as Arena Conda — in stunned silence. “The city is very quiet,” businessman Cecilio Hans said. “People will only believe once the bodies start to arrive.” On social media, haunting last photos showed the smiling players boarding the flight to Colombia for their match with Atletico Nacional. In one photo, the team celebrated a last-minute save by goalkeeper Danilo only a week ago against the Argentine club San Lorenzo. The save guaranteed Chapecoense a spot in the final — and ultimately cost Danilo his life in the crash. “I can’t still believe it,” Alan Heinz said inside the stadium, his body pressed against the fence that separates fans from the field. This time the field was filled by a religious service and prayers for the dead. “I was preparing for the best day of my life, and now I don’t know what my life will be after this,” he said. As recently as 2009, the club known as Chape was playing in Brazil’s fourth division, but it won promotion to the top league in 2014 for the first time since the 1970s. Victories over San Lorenzo and Independente — two of Argentina’s fiercest squads — as well as the Colombian club Junior took the team to the Copa Sudamericana finals, the equivalent of the UEFA Europa League tournament. Few of the players had an international profile, and none had any appearances with Brazil’s glitzy national team. Most had played all

over Brazil and Latin America. Only a few had ever reached Europe, like Cleber Santana, who played for Atletico Madrid in 2007-10. Chape strikers Bruno Rangel and Kempes, both 34, were among the top scorers in the Brazilian league, with 10 and nine goals, respectively. The only players to survive were goalkeeper Jakson Follmann, defender Helio Zampier, commonly known as Neto, and defender-midfielder Alan Ruschel. Coach Caio Junior is credited with Chape’s quick rise, joining the club this year after guiding teams in the Middle East. Born Luiz Carlos Saroli, he coached numerous Brazilian teams, including Palmeiras, Flamengo and Botafogo. He was among the dead. His son, Matheus Saroli, escaped because he didn’t make the flight, saying in a Facebook post that he couldn’t board “because I forgot my passport.” An Argentine player on the club, Alejandro Martinuccio, also missed the flight, because of an injury during a game, he told Argentina’s La Red radio. “I feel deep sadness. The only thing I can ask is prayers for the companions who were on the flight,” he said. Also among the dead were 20 sports journalists, including Mario Sergio Pontes de Paiva, a former player who worked as a commentator for Fox Sports. He played briefly for Brazil’s national team in the early 1980s and had a long career as a midfielder and coach with many Brazilian clubs. He last coached Brazilian club Internacional in 2009 and Ceara in 2010. “This is a very, very sad day for football,” FIFA President Gianni Infantino said in a statement. “At this difficult time our thoughts are with the victims, their families and friends.” (ap)

NEW YORK - U.S. Presidentelect Donald Trump named a vociferous critic ofObamacare and a health policy expert to key appointments on Tuesday to help him repeal and replace President Barack Obama’s signature healthcare program. Republican U.S. Representative Tom Price, an orthopedic surgeon from Georgia, will be Trump’s health and human services secretary, and Seema Verma, the founder of a health policy consulting company, will lead the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, which is part of Health and Human Services and oversees government health programs for the poor and the elderly and insurance standards. Trump, a Republican, also announced his choice on Tuesday of Elaine Chao, labor secretary under President George W. Bush, to serve

as secretary of transportation, saying in a statement her expertise would be an asset “in our mission to rebuild our infrastructure.” The president-elect was expected as early as Wednesday to announce his selection of Goldman Sachs alumnus Steven Mnuchin as Treasury secretary, said a Republican source familiar with the decision. Trump cast Price and Verma as a “dream team” to help him once he takes office on Jan. 20 with his campaign pledge to repeal Obamacare, the health law formally known as the Affordable Care Act. Since its enactment in 2010, it has been a target of Republican attacks. Price has characterized Obamacare as “doing real harm to American families” and has co-sponsored legislation to replace it.

JAKARTA - Indonesias Finance Minister Sri Mulyani has asked civil servants in her ministry to take steps to curb all corruption. The ministry has intensified its supervision against corruption and will evaluate the cases of those detained by the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) for involvement in graft. “We have strengthened (supervision) with the cooperation of the internal obedience directorate, intelligence and other elements, and will carry out evaluation in respective units,” Sri Mulyani assured while speaking at the Risk and Governance Summit (RGS) 2016 here on Monday. The event was held under the theme, “Ethical Governance: The Soul of Sustainability.” The minister expressed her disappointment with the fact that an official of the Taxation Directorate General was arrested by the KPK last Monday for alleged corruption. The taxation official, identified by his initials HS, was arrested by the anti-graft agency at a time when the government has been implementing a tax amnesty scheme. HS betrayed the principles of governance, efficiency and honesty applied by the Finance Ministry in general and the taxation directorate general in particular, she lamented, adding that publics trust was needed for successful implementation of the tax amnesty program.

Fillon’s economic shock therapy for France risks side effects

REUTERS/Jacky Naegelen

Francois Fillon, member of Les Republicains political party and 2017 presidential candidate of the French centre-right, arrives to attend the political council of Les Republicains political party at their headquarters in Paris, France, November 29, 2016.

PARIS - On paper, French presidential favourite Francois Fillon’s free-market plans to cut business taxes, relax labour laws and shrink the public sector should give corporate France a shot in the arm and boost economic growth. But his reforms are likely to come at the cost of showdowns with labour unions and publicsector workers who face losing jobs in a country where strikes can often drag on for several weeks if not months. He could also clash with Berlin over a ballooning budget deficit, while a sales tax hike that would help pay for his other plans risks dampening consumer spending. Fillon, an admirer of late British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, is the centre-right candidate for the presidential election in May, when he will go up against far-right

leader Marine Le Pen and a yet-tobe selected Socialist opponent. If victorious, he would have a popular mandate to enact his free-market reforms following deep disenchantment with Socialist President Francois Hollande’s failure to fulfil pledges to slash high unemployment of about 10 percent and deliver growth. Fillon says he would introduce 50 billion euros ($53 billion) in tax cuts - worth about 2.5 percent of GDP - with most of that targeting companies’ payroll tax. The loss of state revenue would be partially offset with a 2 percentage point increase in value-added sales tax, by far the government’s biggest source of tax revenue. Economists liken the move to a currency devaluation - something outside French authorities’ power as a member of the euro

zone - because firms could sell at more competitive prices abroad while importers face higher prices, thus improving the overall terms France trades on with the rest of the world. “The aim is to rebalance France’s growth model towards exports and away from solely relying on consumption,” said economist Emmanuel Jessua at Coe-Rexecode think tank. There are precedents in France, notably when conservative former President Nicolas Sarkozy, with Fillon as his prime minister, tried to cut payroll taxes in the final months of his term in 2011. Sarkozy’s successor Hollande unpicked the programme once he came to office and introduced instead a tax credit scheme to reduce the payroll taxes companies pay. (rtr)

Minister Sri Mulyani asks civil servants to help stop corruption

As OPEC price hike looms, Asia’s big oil buyers may shop elsewhere The Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) meets on Wednesday to hammer out a deal to prop up prices that have halved since 2014. As they gather, tanker shipments to Asia from non-OPEC sources like Alaska, Azerbaijan, and the North Sea are growing, according to shipping data in Thomson Reuters Eikon. Buyers in Asia, which alone uses a third of the world’s oil supply, have watched with concern as OPEC suppliers - their biggest - openly discuss propping up prices. With non-OPEC supplies readily available, they say they’ll consider exploring new sources if the cartel’s price is no longer right. “For us, the current price levels look to be appropriate for both sides (buyers and producers),” said Eiichiro Kitahara, Executive Officer at major Japanese refinery TonenGeneral Sekiyu. “Our company aims to avoid depending highly on certain suppliers, and we may seek new (supply) opportunities,” Kitahara said, though like other executives he cautioned against expectations of any sudden change in supply trends among buyers.

President Jokowi promotes tourism investment

JAKARTA - There is vast potential for investment in Indonesias tourism sector, President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) has told global investors. “Indonesia has thousands of beautiful places to visit, such as Bali, Raja Ampat in Papua, Mandalika in West Nusa Tenggara, and Komodo island in East Nusa Tenggara,” he remarked at the Forbes Global CEO Conference at the Shangri-la Hotel here on Tuesday. Outside Bali, the potential to develop tourism is still huge, he said.

To boost economic growth through tourism, Garuda Indonesia, the countrys state airline, has expanded direct flight services from countries with the biggest tourist potential to other places in Indonesia such as Manado in North Sulawesi. “In less than a year, the number of tourists from China to Manado has increased to 12,000 per month,”

Indonesia-Australia education partnership builds 2,725 schools: Minister Effendy

JAKARTA - Indonesia and Australia have built 2,725 junior high schools in 30 provinces under education partnership programs over the last 10 years, Education and Culture Minister Muhadjir Effendy said. “The government is under obligation to meet childrens right to have basic education. We have received continuous support from Australia through this partnership,” he said at

the 10th anniversary of IndonesiaAustralia education partnership here on Tuesday. Muhadjir informed that these schools could accommodate 366,300 students in 10,185 classrooms. During the decade for which the program has been running, Australia provided a total A$353 million worth of funds, comprising A$197 million in soft loans and A$156 million in grants.

“The partnership between Indonesia and Australia will be continued as it is based on the principle of achieving mutual prosperity,” he stated. Meanwhile, Australias Deputy Ambassador Justin Lee noted that the partnership program has contributed to 12.04 percent increase in gross participation rate (APK) at junior high school level in Indonesia, from 88.68 percent in 2006 to

100.7 percent in 2015. APK is the ratio for active students in a certain grade compared to population at an age group corresponding to that level. Lee disclosed that Australias next target is to focus on empowerment of teachers and principals in Indonesia. The Indonesia-Australia education partnership to build schools was launched in 2006, after the completion of the reconstruction

program undertaken in the wake of the deadly tsunami that had hit Aceh and West Sumatra. The program was started with Australia-Indonesia Basic Education program (AIBEP) in 20062009 under which 1,570 junior high schools, comprising 835 new regular school buildings and 735 one-roof schools for elementary and junior high school students, were built.

Pecatu villagers hold procession to invoke rain

PECATU village in South Kuta denoting a dry and barren area, in fact has a unique tradition of invoking rain. This tradition has lasted for generations in the form pemelastian procession attended by hundreds of Pecatu villagers on Labuan Sait Beach, Tuesday (Nov. 29).

MINSK - Four-way talks on ending a separatist conflict in eastern Ukraine finished without a breakthrough on Tuesday, with German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier declaring that “lip service” statements were not enough to achieve lasting peace. Amid low expectations, the foreign ministers of Germany, France, Ukraine and Russia met in the Belarussian capital to discuss ways of implementing last year’s Minsk ceasefire accord forUkraine’s Donbass region.

Chief of Pecatu customary village, I Made Sumerta, said that a series of the pemelastian procession was started on November 14 in the form of ngaturin procession. Then, on November 22 was followed by ngusaba ceremony. “Today, we organize pemelastian on the Labuan Sait Beach. It aims at appealing to deities so that they could immediately help drop off rain, and then people can start planting,” he said. In addition, added Sumerta, on the sidelines of the ceremony was also held ngaturin ritual at each clan temple. This ritual has been practiced according to tradition from time immemorial held annually in the sasih kalima (November). “This pemelastian is also resumed by inviting the deities (nedunang) to consult in order to synchronize the ceremonial procession physically and psychically,” he added. In this case, the nedunang procession is meant to inquire whether the ceremony has been properly executed or not and asked about if there are any deficiencies. “Thus, we in the physical realm with all the limitations can organize this ceremony as the expectations,” he said. The pemelastian showed off a spiritual nuance amid the procession taking place. Dozens of residents fell into trance alternately while stabbing a kris dagger into their body parts. (kmb23)

Tolire Lake, the Beautiful Panoramic Lake Surrounded with Legends

IBP/kmb

A brilliantly blue volcanic lake, Tolire lake is set in a crater at the foot of Mt Gamalama, on the island of Ternate, North Maluku Province. The Lake is comprised of two lakes, roughly 200 meters apart: Tolire Lamo, The Greater Tolire Lake, and Tolirelci, the Small Tolire. The Great Lake is almost perfectly round, somewhat resembling a giant pan. Its mystical waters change colors with the seasons, from a bright blue during the summer, to a dark green or brown throughout the rainy season. About 50 meters below the lip of the crater where in it lies, Tolire Lake spans about 5 hectares, yet its depth remains unknown. Some believe that it leads directly to the Ternate Sea. The lakes are freshwater, and home to many species of birds and fish. Due to the belief in invisible crocodile inhabitants,

however, it is used for neither hunting nor fishing. Nevertheless, a relaxing stroll from atop the crater to enjoy the beautiful panoramic view is a lovely way to spend your time in Tolire. As with many a volcanic lake, Tolire is surrounded by many legends. One such legend tells of a man who impregnated his own daughter. In their fury for such a deed, the gods cursed them, transforming the father into the Great Tolire Lake, and his daughter into the lesser one. Local folklore tells that the bottom of the lake is covered in treasure belonging to the bygone Ternate Kingdom. Others believe that the lake is inhabited and guarded by invisible crocodiles, measuring a dozen meters in length, as well as an even larger, white crocodile, which only occasionally makes an appearance.

According to local belief, you can try to throw a stone into the lake, but no matter how hard your try: it will never touch the surface of the water. Stones are sold around the area, at about 5 stones for Rp 1,000. That way, visitors to the area can try their luck at throwing stones into the river and see if any can reach the surface before being devoured by the lake’s invisible guardians.

Germany’s Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier (L) and his French counterpart JeanMarc Ayrault attend a news briefing after the talks on the crisis in eastern Ukraine in Minsk, Belarus, November 29, 2016.

Steinmeier said both Ukraine and Russia had hardened their positions and there was no political agreement in sight on holding local elections in Donbass, as demanded by Russia and the Kremlin-backed separatists. “It was very tedious again today,” Steinmeier said. “Pure lip service will not be enough to solve this conflict.” Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov meanwhile pushed back on a Ukrainian proposal to allow armed OSCE monitors in Donbass. “There weren’t any breakthroughs today. The Minsk agreements are stalled -- we’re not managing to agree on the sequence of steps,” Lavrov told reporters. Highlighting some positives, Steinmeier did, however, say the International Red Cross could help facilitate a significant exchange of prisoners before the end of the year and was optimistic about more phased troops withdrawals taking place. The four nations agreed in October to draw up a roadmap this month on how to implement a ceasefire

agreement struck in Minsk last year to end fighting between Ukrainian troops and Russian-backed separatists in eastern Ukraine. Separatist violence there has killed nearly 10,000 people since it erupted in 2014. Kiev and the West accuse Russia of stoking the separatist movement and aiding the rebels. Western nations have imposed economic sanctions on Moscow. The Kremlin denies these charges, however, and accuses Ukraine of perpetuating the violence and violating the Minsk deal. French Foreign Minister JeanMarc Ayrault said there was still a long way to go on implementing the Minsk process. Speaking to Reuters ahead of the talks, he also called for Europe to stand firm on sanctions against Russia. With one eye on the presidential election race back home, where front runner Francois Fillon favours lifting the sanctions, Ayrault said Russia was playing a waiting game to allow Western divisions on the Ukraine crisis to widen.

Germany’s Merkel opposes new talks with Turkey on EU accession - Bild

BERLIN - German Chancellor Angela Merkel told parliamentary members of her conservative Christian Democrats on Tuesday that she opposed opening new negotiations with Turkey as part of its quest to join the European Union, the Bild newspaper reported. That means the discussions are effectively over, the newspaper reported in Wednesday editions, citing sources who participated in the party meeting. Merkel recommended spelling that out to voters who asked about the party’s position onTurkey, the newspaper said. Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan on Tuesday said his country has not yet “closed the book” on the EU after the European Parliament recommended freezing accession talks last week, but said Ankara had other options with other partners. The European Parliament last week voted 479 to 37 for a non-binding motion to temporarily halt

membership talks with Turkey because of its “disproportionate” reaction to the failed July 15 coup. German officials have been critical of Erdogan’s crackdown on dissidents and journalists after the coup attempt, although Merkel - mindful of the millions of refugees still living in Turkey - on Friday underscored the need for both Turkey and the EU to honour their commitments to each other. Erdogan has suggested that he might scrap a deal to keep hundreds of thousands of migrants inside Turkey’s borders in return for the promise of accelerated EU membership talks, visa-free travel for Turks in Europe and financial aid. Turkish authorities have detained or dismissed more than 125,000 people - including soldiers, academics, judges, journalists and Kurdish leaders - over their alleged backing for the coup, in what opponents, rights groups and some Western allies say is an attempt to crush all dissent.

Injections, implants tested as new weapons to prevent HIV

LONDON - Scientists are taking the battle to prevent HIV to the next level with large-scale trials set to start using injections to protect vulnerable groups such as gay men and women in Africa for at least two months. Further down the road, the hope is to produce matchstick-sized implants containing slow-release drugs - similar to existing underthe-skin contraceptive devices - that could offer year-long protection. Companies with drugs involved include GlaxoSmithKline , Gilead Sciences and Merck. The initiatives build on the success of Gilead’s once-daily pill Truvada, which has proved remarkably effective at stopping HIV infection during sex. Clinical studies show such pre-exposure prophylaxis, or PrEP, can cut the risk of catching the virus by more than 90 percent,

as long as people take their pills regularly. The problem is many do not. Some women in trials in Africa, for example, said they were reluctant to have HIV tablets in the house for fear of what partners or neighbours would think. An injection given in a clinic, experts argue, would add privacy and ensure steady drug levels. An implant in the arm might even combine contraception and HIV protection in one go. “The more options there are the better and I think for some individuals injections will be great,”

said Jean-Michel Molina, professor of infectious diseases at Hospital Saint-Louis in Paris. “Now that we know antiretrovirals have great potential to prevent HIV infections, it is time to really assess other ways to deliver these drugs.” The need remains acute. Despite treatment advances that have slashed AIDS deaths, around 1.9 million people still catch HIV each year - a number that hasn’t budged since 2010. New infections among gay men are actually increasing. The United Nations AIDS programme warned last week that the problem now threatened progress in ending the global epidemic, while the World Health Organization has recommended PrEP for all groups at substantial risk of HIV infection.

Japan orders major poultry cull after firstbird flu outbreak in nearly two years

TOKYO - Japan has started culling more than 300,000 chickens and ducks after the discovery of a highly contagious form of bird flu on farms in the north of the country, local officials said. The bird flu outbreaks are the first in nearly two years in Japan and news of the cullings boosted shares in some infection-control product makers. In Niigata prefecture north of Tokyo, authorities on Tuesday started culling about 310,000 chickens at a farm in the village of Sekikawa after 40 birds were found dead from H5 bird flu, a prefectural official told Reuters by telephone. The cull will continue until Dec. 2, the official said. Further north in the prefecture of Aomori, about 16,500 ducks were being culled in the city of the same name after some tested positive for bird flu, according to a statement on the prefecture’s website. This is the first time that highly pathogenic avian influenza has been confirmed in Aomori prefecture, it said. The agriculture ministry said the outbreaks are the first for nearly two years in poultry farms in Japan. Taiko Pharmaceutical Co, which makes infection-control products, surged 3.2 percent, and mask maker Daiwabo Holdings, jumped 5.1 percent. Protective clothing maker Azearth Corp, which is listed on the Tokyo Stock Exchange’s second section, soared 17 percent to its daily limit of 681 yen. Meanwhile, grilled-chicken restaurant operator Torikizoku Co dropped

2.8 percent. “The news about bird flu is affecting these shares, but these moves tend to be short-lived,” said Mitsushige Akino, chief fund manager at Ichiyoshi Asset Management. South Korea last Friday announced a temporary nationwide standstill order for poultry farms and related transport over the weekend in a bid to contain a spread of H5N6 bird flu, a severe strain of the disease. Another severe strain of bird flu, H5N8, has hit several countries in Europe and led to the culling of thousands of poultry after being detected in wild ducks in Northern France. In recent weeks there have also been outbreaks in the Netherlands, Switzerland, Romania and Germany. Dutch authorities destroyed about 190,000 ducks on Saturday at six farms following an avian flu outbreak. Farmers located in humid regions, where the risk of transmission is higher, are advised by health authorities to keep poultry flocks indoors or apply safety nets preventing contact with wildbirds. The H5N8 virus has never been detected in humans but it led to the culling of millions of farmbirds in Asia, mainly South Korea, in 2014 before spreading to Europe. The World Organization for Animal Health had warned in an interview with Reuters mid-November that more outbreaks of H5N8 were likely in Europe as wild birds believed to transmit the virus migrate southward.

The gabion placed at Lovina

Lovina Beach installed with gabion to retain waves

SINGARAJA - The surface of Lovina Beach, Kalibukbuk, Singaraja, erodes by degrees. This impact is caused by depletion of upper land surface or coastal degradation. Coastal protection structure or gabion is used to prevent coastal area from erosion and dampen the blow of the waves. The edge area of Lovina Beach overlooking The Lovina Bali is now installing gabion retaining walls. The rectangular gabion along nearly five meters is arranged in stacks. This gabion pilot project can maintain the stability of waves while minimizing the reduction of sea sand on the seashore. In fact, the gabion technique is complained by people through social media in the Buleleng Jengah Facebook group. Gabion construction of The Lovina Bali is considered to disturb the convenience of local residents and form a private area of the hotel. Responding to the misconcep-

tions of the gabion installed a week ago, the management of The Lovina Bali finally spoke about the natural condition experienced by Lovina in the past few years. The sandy beach overlooking The Lovina Bali formerly had a wide enough area, but gradually it shrinks as exposed to abrasion from east to west. “We’re trying to rescue the beaches around our hotel. We hope that guests coming to Singaraja could sunbathe and swim to enjoy

the beach. So, we maintain the nature, not to control the beach,” said General Manager of The Lovina Bali, Dwi Dharmawijaya, when met on Tuesday (Nov. 29) together with the HRD of The Lovina Bali, Nyoman Redita and owner of The Lovina Bali, Robert Karl Stahl. According to him, the hotel management has even involved a British consultant who once did a project in Dubai that advised the application of gabion. One component of the gabion on the west side near The Lovina Bali is not a permanent structure and can be dismantled any time. Conversely, the gabion is aimed to protect the sand and prevent from the abrasion. “So, it is very eco-friendly and unlike the application of concrete construction. We never block pub-

MANGUPURA - After clubbing in a discotheque on Jalan Legian, Kuta, Limara Deana Holmes, 17, from Australia passed through Jalan Poppies I Gang Bedugul heading for her accommodation at Hotel Kuta Town House, Sunday (Nov. 27). At that time, the iPhone held by this student was snatched by the suspect Kiki Irfani, 16. The suspect Kiki from Sukabumi, West Java, was beaten by residents but managed to escape with his friend, Ketut Arta. “The suspect Kiki was arrested by Operations team led by Budi Artama at his boarding house on Jalan Tukad Bilok, South Denpasar,

while his friend, Ketut Arta, is still being pursued. Their motorcycle was left at the scene and was ruined by residents,” said Chief of Kuta Police, I Wayan Sumara, accompanied by chief of Criminal Investigation Unit Putu Budi Artama, Tuesday (Nov. 29). Results of the investigation, said the police chief, mentioned that at 03:30 am the victim with a friend was after clubbing at a discotheque on Jalan Legian, Kuta. Then, they passed through Jalan Poppies I and headed for the hotel where they were staying. “When almost getting to the ho-

tel, the victim took her iPhone 6 out of the bag. Suddenly a motorcycle came ridden by the culprit and immediately approached the victim,” said Chief Sumara. The suspect Kiki instantly snatched the iPhone held by the victim. The victim was shocked and immediately shouted: “My phone is stolen.” Scream of the victim was so loud so that it was heard by hotel security guard. The security guard promptly came out and tried to catch both snatchers. “They had to struggle. Both snatchers fell down from their motorcycle,” he affirmed.

lic road access. We installed it a week ago and the first gabion has brought in sea sand to assemble. Previously, sea-water once came up to western side of the hotel courtyard,” he said. He added that the environmental conservation is made through gabion installation with a length of nearly five meters. Negative comments on the hotel management by netizens in social media wanted to get more openness about the purpose of the environmental conservation against the coastal erosion. “A number of children are exercising and playing on the beach in front of our hotel every afternoon. Besides, we often assist local fishermen in the form of CSR,” he added. In the meantime, headman of

Kalibukbuk, Ketut Suka, said that hotel management does not only pursue profits, but has also been able to keep the environment clean. The management of The Lovina Bali does not violate any rules. On the contrary, it has been contributing to the protection of the environment from degradation of coastal beaches. Without the installation of gabion, the sea sand will move slowly to the west or precisely near the Dolphin statue of Lovina. “Concern of the hotel has been showed by preserving the environment. Businessmen go hand in hand comfortably in synergy with the community of Kalibukbuk. I appreciate positively to the initiative of the entrepreneur rescuing the environment and sanitation in the Lovina Beach areas,” he said. (kmb34)

Residents seeing the incident beat up the culprits getting involved. But unfortunately, they managed to escape, but the Honda Beat motorcycle formerly used was left at the scene. Based on the result of checking against the license plate of the motorcycle, continued Sumara, the residence of Kiki could be tracked namely on Jalan Tukad Bilok Gang Udang, Denpasar. Budi together with his personnel directly came to the location and arrested the suspect who has a wife and children. To the officers, this motorcycle washing attendant mentioned that

Arta stayed on Jalan Tukad Citarum. However, when checked to the location he was not found. Results of the examination indicated that the suspect Kiki admitted to have snatched foreigners for two times. They are specifically targeting foreign travelers because their belongings are definitely nice and expensive. “We are still developing this case. We suspect if they have taken action for more than twice. We also appeal to the victims that have been snatched by this culprit to immediately report to Kuta Police station,” he said. (kmb36)

Eternal Youth In A Bottle

As for Benoa Bay reclamation issue

Duly parliament adopts coastal communities’ aspiration

The latest breakthrough in antiaging is now available at the BIMC Hospital CosMedic Centre in Nusa Dua. This cutting-edge technology is also known “growth factor” or GF and is obtainable in the convenient forms of serums and skincare for topical application. But first, what are growth factors? Every cell in your skin produces certain proteins known as growth factors, which are responsible for a variety of activities including growth, repair and maintenance of healthy skin. As you age,

your body would produce less and less growth factors, resulting in the breakdown of collagen. This can now be reversed with the use of GF, which works with cytokines and antioxidants to repair, resurface and regenerate aging, damaged skin for a youthful, vibrant complexion without expensive and painful plastic or cosmetic surgery. The CosMedic Centre has found that the best source of GF for skin comes from human fibroblast cells. This finding has been supported by numerous scientific publications

DENPASAR - Different stance is demonstrated by people’s representatives in charge of the Bali House of Representatives. If the legislators of Bali only forwarded people’s aspiration that rejects the Benoa Bay reclamation to the president, then the representatives of Balinese people in the central House of Representatives even expressly rejected and asked the Benoa Bay reclamation plan to be terminated. “Now, the entire customary villages in the coastal areas have declared their stance to reject the Benoa Bay reclamation, except for one customary village that has not. However, its residents and the youth have expressed their stance by installing billboard. On that account, Made Urip, a member of the central House of Representatives from Bali has conveyed the people’s aspirations that firmly rejected it,” said Chairman of the LPM Tanjung Benoa, I Kadek Duarsa, when confirmed on Tuesday (Nov. 29). In contrast to the stance of the member of the central House of Representatives, added Duarsa, the stance of the Bali House of Representatives is still questionable. Is it true that Bali House of Representatives has positioned itself as the people’s representatives? Actually, the people of customary village in the coastal areas have expressed their The beautiful Benoa Bays

rejection against the Benoa Bay reclamation. Similarly, the customary people coalesced in the Pasubayan (association) of customary village rejecting Benoa Bay reclamation has already stated their stance statement for several times to the Bali House of Representatives. “However, the Bali House of Representatives only give open and normative statement by conveying it to the president. Until now, we are still in doubt with the Bali House of Representatives whether they know about the people’s aspirations or not. They should come down to customary villages, whether or not they truly express the opposition,” he explained. Duarsa added that aspirations of the coastal communities should be adopted as well in the issuance of the environmental impact analysis (EIA) of the Benoa Bay reclamation following the impacts to be experienced by coastal communities as a result of the reclamation. Environmental preservation must be put forward, lest there are other interests in disguise. Moreover, there are material interests by selling ‘home,’ environment and Balinese culture. “As coastal residents, we are very concerned with the environment, nature and culture of our own. I personally do not want there are things beyond environmental, cultural and our natural preservation ridden with illogical interests or personal interests, political and even material interests. Hopefully, there is nothing like that,” he said.

Coordinator of the pasubayan, I Wayan Swarsa, said that if the legislators really position themselves as people’s representatives, the real aspirations on the rejection of Balinese customary community will get the attention of the central House of Representatives and Bali House of Representatives. Moreover, the aspiration revealed by the Pasubayan represents not a small number of customary communities. “It should also become the basis for the rejection or at least to cancel or move (the reclamation) to appropriate location. In other words, it is really a rejection of customary people serving as the basis for legislators of the central House of Representatives as implementation of the people’s representatives,” said chief of Kuta customary village. Swarsa added that if the reclamation plan is forced by the government and supported by the parliament, and goes up against the existing facts, he is confident it will make Bali increasingly less conducive in the future. On that account, even though the legislators are from political parties, the real people’s aspirations on the rejection against the reclamation should be still fought. “Those obviously rejecting are clearly visible, who supports? At most, they are only a few. So far, there are no customary village institutions expressing their support to the reclamation. Legislators are not necessarily political, but as part of the community they do not regard of what political party they come from,” he concluded. (kmb32) IBP/file

Having no building permit

Hotel Maha Ungasan threatened to be sealed

MANGUPURA - Hotel Maha Ungasan is threatened to be sealed by the Badung municipal police. It happens because the tourist accommodation located at Ungasan village, South Kuta, has not owned yet a building permit (IMB) and hotel operational permit. This issue emerged in a meeting at the office of the municipal police

with a number of agencies such as the Badung municipal police, integrated licensing office (BPPT), police officers and representative of the hotel imposed with the sealing sanction, Tuesday (Nov. 29). “We have done a persuasive action by summoning and making coordination with the hotel management so that they could submit the

licensing first before opening the hotel. Moreover, we have reprimanded for three times before taking decisive action,” said Chief of Badung Municipal Police, Ketut Martha. According to him, such action has been in accordance with the instruction of the regent of Badung, No.600/2016 dated on November 1, 2016. As planned, the execution

will be carried out in December. “We will carry out the sealing on December 5, 2016. Similarly, we have informed to the three lawyers of hotel owner related to the sealing action,” he explained. Related to the fears of opposition by the hotel management, Ketut Martha admitted not to give a damn. His agency will team up

with police authorities to secure the enforcement so that the hotel sealing will be conducive. “This action has been in conformity with judicial aspects and the orders of superiors. Whether they will file a lawsuit later on, we are also ready. Obviously, the hotel is operating without permission,” he concluded. (kmb27)

Actress Evan Rachel Wood on Twitter ‘I have been raped’

NEW YORK - “Westworld” actress Evan Rachel Wood said on Tuesday she was taking a break from social media, a day after revealing on Twitter that she had been sexually abused twice. In a Rolling Stone interview published this month, the star discussed her suicide attempt at age 22 and being subjected to “physical, psychological, sexual” abuse. Wood, 29, tweeted late on Monday she could not stay silent any longer “given the state our world is in with its blatant bigotry and sexism.” However, she also said she had been hesitant to share her story in the past because she did not want to be accused of doing it for atten-

tion. “I had the urge to not make it a sob story, to not make it about me,” she wrote using her verified Twitter handle (@evanrachelwood). In the post, which was shared more than one thousand times, Wood said she had been “raped by a significant other while we were together. And

Thousands squeeze into church, stadium to mourn tragic crash

CHAPECO — Thousands squeezed into Chapeco’s cathedral and even more packed a stadium to mourn the death of 71 people in a plane crash, 19 of them members of the Chapecoense club who had been on the brink of soccer greatness.

on a separate occasion, by the owner of a bar”. She said that the attacks happened “many, many years ago” but did not provide an exact date. “I am still standing. I am alive. I am happy. I am strong. But I am still not OK,” Wood wrote. “I think it’s important for people to know that, for survivors to know that, and that the pressure to just get over it already, should be lifted.” Wood is known for her roles in “Thirteen”, “The Ides of March” and “The Wrestler”, as well as HBO series “Westworld” and “Mildred Pierce”.
