Aaron Tveit, Karen Olivo lead ‘Moulin Rouge’ stage adaptation

LOS ANGELES - Aaron Tveit and Karen Olivo will headline the new musical adaptation of “Moulin Rouge,” the stage adaptation of the 2001 Baz Luhrmann film. Tveit, a Broadway fan-favorite whose screen work has included the film version of “Les Miserables” and TV outings “Graceland” and “Grease Live,” will play the role Ewan McGregor played in the movie, with Tony winner Olivo (“West Side Story,” “In the Heights”) on board in the Nicole Kidman part. Also on the cast list are Danny Burstein (“Fiddler on the Roof,” “Cabaret,” “Follies”), playing the host of the Moulin Rouge, as well as Sahr Ngaujah (“Fela”), Ricky Rojas, Robyn Hurder and Tam Mutu. Alex Timbers (“Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson,” “Peter and the Starcatcher”) directs the musical, with a book by John Logan (“Red,” “Gladiator”) adapted from the screenplay by Luhrmann and Craig Pearce. Sonya Tayeh (“So You Think You Can Dance”) choreographs. “Moulin Rouge” centers on the romance between a struggling poet and a chanteuse in Paris. Like the film, the musical will draw its score from popular hits,” which for the movie included “Lady Marmalade,” “Diamond Dogs” and “Your Song.” Produced by Global Creatures, the company behind the upcoming musical version of “King Kong,” and exec produced by DreamWorks Animation alum Bill Damaschke will premiere at Boston’s Emerson Colonial Theatre in a run that begins previews June 27.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Vin Diesel

The Rock finally explains his beef with Vin Diesel on ‘Fate of the Furious’

LOS ANGELES - We finally have some answers regarding what was arguably the biggest feud of 2016, outside of the election.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson gets remarkably candid about his beef with Fate of the Furious costar Vin Diesel in an extensive interview with Rolling Stone. Their rivalry, initially made public by Johnson, spurred headlines throughout production for the film (how could it not? Johnson called Diesel a “candy-ass” on Instagram), and later reiterated that it all boils down to their different mentalities. Johnson confirms that if you saw the film and suspected that he and Diesel did not film scenes together, you are indeed correct. “Vin and I had a few discussions, including an important face-to-face

in my trailer,” Johnson explained to RS. “And what I came to realize is that we have a fundamental difference in philosophies on how we approach moviemaking and collaborating. It took me some time, but I’m grateful for that clarity. Whether we work together again or not.” Johnson explained that he wasn’t sure what that meant for his involvement with the franchise in the future. “Right now I’m concentrating on making the spinoff as good as it can be,” he explained, referencing the film Hobbs and Shaw. “But I wish him all the best, and I harbor no ill will there, just because of the

clarity we have.” But don’t worry — just because there is clarity now does not mean The Rock has lost his pettiness. Thanks to interviewer Josh Eells, it’s plain and clear how Johnson really feels. “He considers this, then lets out a big, sly laugh. ‘Actually, you can erase that last part about ‘no ill will.’ We’ll just keep it with the clarity,’” Eells wrote in the profile. Johnson made similar comments to Entertainment Tonight about differing philosophies between the two in 2017, but it looks like time hasn’t healed all of the scars quite yet.

Borocay has had an ongoing problem with pollution on its beaches

‘Cesspool’ paradise island of Boracay to shut in the Philippines

MANILA - The Philippines will shut its most famous holiday island for six months after the President called it a “cesspool”. Rodrigo Duterte has approved the temporary closure of Boracay after saying the waters off its famed white-sand beaches were being polluted with raw sewage. His spokesman confirmed the shutdown will commence on 26 April, but he did not clarify what the clean-up will involve. In 2017, two million tourists visited the island which is popular for its lively nightlife, turquoise seas and powdery sands. Thousands of livelihoods rely on the tourism industry, which is worth around $1bn (£710m) to the national economy. Reports suggest disaster funds would be activated to help affected workers, but business leaders have urged the government

to phase in the plans more slowly. “We are a bit depressed right now in the industry,” said Jose Clemente, president of the Tourism Congress of the Philippines. “I really feel for the people in Boracay. They really need to find ways to be employed, or at least keep their head above water for the next six months.” Some local business owners have expressed concern over how they will survive without an income. In February, the fiery president criticised the resort’s 500 hotel

owners and restaurateurs, accusing them of dumping sewage in the sea. “You go into the water, it’s smelly. Smell of what? S**t. Because it all comes out in Boracay,” Mr Duterte said. Officials have warned the island’s drainage system is sending untreated waste into the water - with a government study concluding the sewage will turn Boracay into a “dead island” in less than a decade unless action is taken. The environment ministry says 195 businesses and more than 4,000 residents are

not connected to sewer lines. Last month, environment undersecretary Jonas Leones told reporters that shutting down the tourist trade may include suspending ferry services, making the beaches off limits, and stationing police there “if necessary”. “An iron fist is needed to bring it back to its previous condition. It will be a temporary thing,” Mr Leones said. In response to Wednesday night’s announcement, some airlines have already cut back their services. As far back as 2005, experts were warning of the consequences of dumping rubbish Cebu Pacific told Reuters it has cancelled 14 daily round-trip flights to Caticlan and Kalibo, Boracay’s

two main gateways, from April 26 to October 25. Philippine Airlines said it would scale down services to the airports and add flights to other destinations instead. “We fully support the government’s intention to make Boracay fully safe and environmentally friendly,” said Jaime Bautista, the airline’s president.

An example of cold storage room.

CAS built in Petang Market

MANGUPURA - Badung’s district government finally determined the location of the location for the establishment of a COld Storage Unit (CAS) at the Petang Traditional Market. The giant cold storage unit for storing agricultural produce is scheduled to be completed this year. When contacted on Wednesday (APR 4), President Director of PD Pasar, I Made Sutarma, confirmed that CAS food storage will be managed PD Pasar Badung. “The fund for management is indeed from us because the CAS will be located in our market. How it will be managed is still being discussed. My representative is still discussing the matter with the regional secretariat”, he said.

Separately, the Agriculture and Food Agency has also signed an MoU with a number of chili and onion farmers in Badung for the storing of their commodities in the CAS. Acting Head of the Badung Agriculture and Food Agency, Putu Oka Swadiana, confirmed that they are cooperating with PD Pasar Badung in the operation of the cold storage unit. “We have made MoU with some farmers in Badung. They will plant chili and onions which will be stored in CAS. We are also working with PD Pasar Badung”, he said. Oka Swadiana revealed that the CAS project will be completed this year, allowing chilies and onions to be stored and release farmers from the grip of fluctuating prices. Recently, the price of chili skyrocketed to IDR 70,000 per kilogram from the normal price of IDR 30,000 per kilogram. “Obviously, it will

Most tourists horrified by cockfighting GIANYAR - Tajen or cockfighting is an inseperable part of life for some Balinese people especially in especially for the tabuh rah ceremony. For many visitors to this island, however, it is considered quite horrifying. “Ya, that is because spurs are used in cockfighting, so tourists often find it horrible to see the chicken injuring each other like that”, explained Head of the Gianyar Tourist Office, A.A. Bagus Ari Brahmanta, when contacted on Wednesday (Apr. 4). Tourists who do not have respect for cockfighting include Americans, Eurepeans and Austrians visit-

ing Bali, particularly Gianyar. “Tourists from these countries rarely want to see cockfighting, whether it is tabuh rah (ritual-related) or cockfight that is used for gambling”, he said. Brahmanta added that Asian tourists - especially those from the Philippines often do like to watch cockfights. They will even come to Gianyar especially to see cockfighting. “The reason that Filipino tourists like to watch cockfighting is probably because they have a similar tradition in their country”, he said. (kmb35)

be accomplished this year. Now (Wednesday—Ed) we are also meeting with the Regional Secretary and PD Pasar”, he said. Regional Development Planning Board (Bappeda) of Badung had previously reported that the CAS development plan was still in progress. The program is being conducted in cooperation with PT Pura Agro Mandiri, Kudus, Central Java. To begin with, the chili and onions will be given priority for cold storage. Two units will be purchased at once - one for chilies and one for onions each with a capacity for 25 tons/ . As a starting point, it will be mainly given priority for the storage of chili and onion products. So, the procurement will build two units at once. One unit is intended for chili storage and another for onion storage with respective capacity of about 25 tons. (kmb27)

Bali’s exports up in value

DENPASAR - Bali earned US$94.96 million from exports in the first two months of this year , up 12.67 percent from US$84.28 million in the same period last year.

GIANYAR — Two foreigners from Bulgaria were arrested by the ranks of the Ubud Police on Wednesday morning (Apr. 5). The alleged perpetrators 28 year old US and 26 year old MH were caught tryign use the skimming technique at a CIMB Niaga ATM on Jalan Bisma, Ubud Kelod. Police are still developing the case. Based on information compiled,the two foreigners were first seen by restaurant security, I Dewa Gede Anom who grew suspicious by the long amount of time the two foreigners were taking in the ATM. His suspicion increased when he saw one of the foreigners cover the CCTV with duct tape. I Dewa Gede Anom immediately called the police as he kept an eye on the suspicious characters. A team from the Criminal Investigation Unit led by Andika Arya Pratama arrived at the crime scene where the two foreigners were continuing their suspicious activities. When the police approached the ATM and questioned the two foreigners, the Bulgarians denied any wrong doing. However the

Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, is the one person, as people in Washington joke, who could take down Trump, according to a recent profile in The New York Times. (Interestingly, the president hasn’t had anything to say about her on Twitter, a rarity for him.) While she may be a new face to some of us, the entertainer has actually been in the public eye for over a decade, working as an actress and director in the adult film industry and even appearing in a couple of mainstream films. Judd Apatow, who directed Daniels in both “Knocked Up” and “The 40-Year-Old Virgin,” said, “She is not someone to be underestimated.” We may have ignored her over the past decade, but we’ve got proof that she was right under our noses the whole time. (net)

CCTV camera covered in duck tape was enough evidence to bring the two to the Ubud Police Station. Police also secured a silver APV vehicle with license DK 1194 DQ at the Ubud Police Station. Other evidence secured included two pieces waist bags, three handphones, four ATM cards, two black purses, five hats, one role of black duct tape, one white wire rod, a pair of black-yellow pliers, two red pruning tools, one screwdriver, ten connectors, one folding knife, one curved iron, one Wi-Fi connector and one red rounded-end lock. Meanwhile, the crime scene was cordoned off with a police line but was opened later that afternoon after the scene of the crime had been investigated. When asked for his confirmation, Chief of Gianyar Police Criminal Investigation Unit, Denny Septiawan, said that two suspects had indeed been arrested for allegedly conducting an ATM break-in but added that they are still developing the case.

Fishermen profession is still pursued by thousands of residents of Klungkung district.

LOS ANGELES - Kendall and Kylie Jenner now have one less lawsuit on their hands. The sisters and design duo have reached a settlement with photographer Michael Miller, after his image of Tupac appeared on a t-shirt in the “vintage” tee collection they released for their Kendall + Kylie line last summer. Accordingly, the reality TV stars will be paying their own legal fees, as will Miller. Outside of that, though, it’s unknown whether or not a payment was made, TMZ reports. They still have another lawsuit stemming from the same collection, though. Notorious B.I.G.’s estate filed suit after the Jenner sisters used the late rapper’s image in their collection. “This is misappropriation at its finest,” his estate’s lawyer Julian K. Petty told TMZ last year. “I’m curious to hear the justification. I’m even more curious to hear the proposed resolution.” The Jenner’s never did share their intended resolution, however they did issue a statement immediately

after Biggie’s mother, Violetta Wallace, called them out on Instagram, writing, “I am not sure who told @ kyliejenner and @kendalljenner that they had the right to do this.The disrespect of these girls to not even reach out to me or anyone connected to the estate baffles me. I have no idea why they feel they can exploit the deaths of 2pac and my Son Christopher to sell a t-shirt. This is disrespectful, disgusting, and exploitation at its worst!!!” In their apology, which was shared on Instagram, they wrote, “These designs were not well thought out and we deeply apologize to anyone that has been upset and/or offended, especially to the families of the artists. We are huge fans of their music and it was not our intention to disrespect these cultural icons in anyway. The tee shirts have been pulled from retail and all images have been removed. We will use this as an opportunity to learn from these mistakes and again, we are very sorry.” (net)

Uncertain nature condition, fisherman takes other profession

SEMARAPURA — Fishermen profession is still pursued by thousands of residents of Klungkung district. However, within the past few years it has no longer been the primary source of livelihood and they decide to take a side job. Uncertainty of the fish catch happens due to natural factors.

Head of the Klungkung Food and Fishery Agency, I Wayan Durma, admitted such condition. To maintain the profession having been passed through generations, the government has provided various types of infrastructure and facility assistance. Similarly, the latest aid is in the form of insurance. “Fishing as a side job has grown up about ten years ago. This happens because the fish catch is erratic due to nature condition. This is difficult to handle. If due to the matter of equipment, the government has given,” he said on Tuesday (Apr. 3). Seeing the condition, at the end of April or early May the district government plans to hold a maritime festival. According to this official from Nusa Penida, the inaugural event is not limited to commemorate the National Fishermen’s Day on April 6, but also to open the communication space with fishermen. The problems having been faced will be explored as much detail as possible to look for solutions. “This is meant to support fishermen to stay at sea. We will open programs,” he explained. In the festival, various fish-based foods will be promoted. This is also intended to arouse the emergence of creativity among the fisherman so as not only directly to sell their fish catch to the market. However, fishermen can process it into products having higher selling value. “This activity is scheduled to last for

three days,” he said. Division Head of Fishery, Made Gunadnya, added that other than natural conditions, the reduced fishing catches are also influenced by culture. Lately, fishermen in Klungkung have never sailed in a long time with a far radius. “It is different from fishermen elsewhere; they can sail for months to a considerable distance. If this can be done by fishermen in Klungkung, their fish catch is definitely more,” he explained accompanied by fisheries instructor, Dian Safitri. The no longer promising result was expressed by fisherman of Kusamba village, Dawan, Nengah Suryata, 45. Such condition caused one by one of the residents to stop being a fisherman. Nowadays, the only remaining fishermen are 25 people, mostly have been aged. This profession is no longer eyed by younger generation. The youths born from a family of fishermen prefer to migrate to urban areas. They are looking for a job whose results are considered more promising and prestigious. “Fisherman only remains one generation, only the current one, while the children no longer want to do it,” he said. Residents like Nengah Mandri, 46, leave her fisherman profession and chooses to take other jobs. By pursuing profession of fish net repairer, he can earn quite promising income. For large nets, he will be paid as much as IDR 500,000 which can be completed within five to seven days. On several occasions, he also tries to be a porter taking goods onto the boat to Nusa Penida. A day, he can earn IDR 100,000. “This work can be done every day. The result is more real, it no needs any preparation,” he explained. According to the data, the number of fishermen in Klungkung region reaches 1,200 people coalesced into 79 groups. (kmb45)

Dozens of poor people in Bangli were provided with a two month training in sewing skills as part of the government of Bangli’s efforts to create entrepreneurs in the district.

To improve economy

Dozens of poor people taught to sew

BANGLI — Dozens of poor people in Bangli were provided with a two month training in sewing skills as part of the government of Bangli’s efforts to create entrepreneurs in the district. It is hoped that this training will allow the participants to become financially independent and contribute to a prosperous local economy. Head of the Bangli Social Agency, Nengah Sukarta, said on Wednesday (Apr. 4) that sewing training for the poor was held in two locations: at the vocational skill training (BLK)

Kayuambua, Susut and at the Bunga Bali Foundation with a total of 50 productive aged people being trained. “We started the training on March 29 and it will go on for two

months. Both men and women are being trained”, he explained. Sukarta added that this is the third time that the government is training people to sew. The Social Agency has

found this to be an effective way of making poor people more independent and improving the economy. From the results of monitoring done in the field, 90 percent of the poor people who received this training now offer sewing services from their homes. “There are people provide sewing services for customary attire like kebaya shirts, as well as simple

tailoring”, he explained. Sukarta added that the Social Agency plans to provide advanced sewing training in the future, to improve the skills of participants and allow them to further develop their home businesses, however they have yet to find a qualified instructor. “We also provide trainees with sewing machines”, said Sukarta.

Embankment built in estuary of Mati River to prevent seawater floods

IBP/kmb

An embankment will also be added to the estuary area to dam up seawater floods and prevent the surges of water from upstream to be contained.

MANGUPURA - Legian and Kuta are experience flooding during the rainy season. Last Feruary for example, both areas were hit with moderate to serious flooding as the Mati River overflowed. The Mati River is therefor being installed with infrastructure to minimize flooding. The Water Resources Network Executive (PJSA) at the Bali-Penida River Agency (BWS) will build flood control infrastructure in central Mati River. When contacted on Wednesday (Apr. 4), Chief Unit of PJSA of Bali-Penida River Agency, I Putu Eddy Purnawijaya, said the Mati River needs to have flood control. “THere are floods every year and in Febuary it was quite dramatic”, he

said, explaining that work will be done from the central to the downstream portion of the river. The work will be divided into two segments. The first segment of this project will start from the area of Jalan Gunung Soputan to Jalan Sunset Road. Then, the second segment continues towards the estuary area in Kuta. “The work includes normalization of the river. Some pumps will also be installed on Jalan Sunset Road and in the estuary”, he said. An embankment will also be added to the estuary area to dam up seawater floods and prevent the surges of water from upstream to be contained. It is hopes that sea water will thus not flow into people’s homes as it did earlier this year.

“The embankment will be equipped with a pump to suction water away from residential areas”, he added. Purnawijaya also revealed that the work along 8 kilometers of the river will be done using funds sourced from the state budget. The budget for the first segment is IDR 180 billion, while the second segment will use a budget of IDR 246 billion. “First we will return the rivers flow capacity to normal then an embankment will be installed if necessary so that flash floods do not cause overflow”, he concluded. The projects accommodating proposals from local communities are currently under preparation and measurement. The Mati River project is scheduled for completion in 2019. (kmb23)

Fiji PM warns of ‘frightening new era’ as he blames deadly cyclone on climate change

RIYADH - King Salman reiterated Saudi Arabia’s support for a Palestinian state after his son and heir apparent said Israelis were entitled to live peacefully on their own land - a rare statement by an Arab leader. The king also emphasized the need to advance the peace process in a phone call with U.S. President Donald Trump on Monday night, made after Israeli security forces killed 16 Palestinians last week during a demonstration along the Israel-Gaza border. The number rose to 17 on Tuesday. King Salman reaffirmed “the kingdom’s steadfast position toward the Palestinian issue and the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people to an independent state with Jerusalem as its capital”, state news agency SPA said on Tuesday. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas praised King Salman, thanking him for his support. “President Abbas expressed his gratitude and appreciation ... for his supportive positions of the Palestinian people, the Palestinian cause and the cause of Jerusalem and its sacred sites,” said a statement published by the official Palestinian WAFA news agency. Abbas also praised Saudi Arabia for continuing to support the right of the Palestinian people to estab-

lish their independent state with East Jerusalem as its capital, the statement said. The report did not refer to the comments by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in an interview published on Monday by U.S. magazine The Atlantic, which are the latest public sign that ties between Saudi Arabia and Israel may be growing closer. Asked if he believes the Jewish people have a right to a nation-state in at least part of their ancestral homeland, Prince Mohammed was quoted as saying: “I believe the Palestinians and the Israelis have the right to have their own land. But we have to have a peace agreement to assure the stability for everyone and to have normal relations.” Saudi Arabia, birthplace of Islam and home to its holiest shrines, does not recognize Israel. It has maintained for years that normalizing relations hinges on Israeli withdrawal from Arab lands captured in the 1967 Middle East war, territory Palestinians seek for a future state. Increased tension between Riyadh and Tehran has fueled speculation that shared interests may push Saudi Arabia and Israel to work together against what they see as a common Iranian threat. (afp)

FIJI - Fiji’s prime minister has blamed climate change for a cyclone which killed five people and caused severe flooding, saying the Pacific nation is now under constant threat and has entered a “frightening new era”. As authorities tried to restore power and water supplies across various islands, Frank Bainimarama said Fiji was facing a “fight for our very survival” and urged other countries to support efforts to tackle the causes of climate change. “We are now at an almost constant level of threat from these extreme weather events that are becoming more frequent and more severe because of climate change,” he said. “As a nation we are starting to build our resilience in response to the frightening new era that is upon us.” Cyclone Josie brought torrential rains and led to heavy flooding on the weekend. It came just six weeks after Cyclone Gita in February, which caused some property damage in Fiji but devastated Tonga, and two years after Cyclone Winston, which killed 44 people. Fiji and other small Pacific na-

tions have led a desperate push for global action to combat climate change, saying that rising sea levels and intense weather events have already begun to make parts of their territory uninhabitable. Mr Bainimarama assumed a leading role in international climate talks last November when he served as president of the UN’s COP23 negotiation in Bonn. “We need to get the message out loud and clear to the entire world about the absolute need to confront this crisis head on,” he said. Most scientists believe climate change will reduce the frequency of cyclones as temperature differences between the earth’s surface and the atmosphere decrease. But it will lead to more intense cyclones – including higher wind speeds and greater rainfall - as warmer water temperatures add to overall precipitation and to the amount of energy at the water

surface. Australia’s Bureau of Meteorology said it was difficult to detect trends about cyclone intensity in the region because of a lack of consistent data. But it noted: “We may have fewer cyclones but the ones we do have will be stronger.” Professor James Renwick, an expert in atmospheric sciences at Victoria University of Wellington, told Radio New Zealand in February he expected cyclone intensity to increase because there will be “more energy in the climate system”. “Warmer seas, warmer air - so when you have a tropical cyclone it’s likely to be more intense,” he said. Since the latest cyclone in Fiji, authorities have been clearing debris, restoring roads and assisting people who have taken shelter in dozens of evacuation centres. (net)

The City of Denpasar’s Council of the Arts is preparing a presentation of “Topeng Panca” for the Mask Parade that will be part the prestigious Bali Arts Festival (PKB) that is in its 38th year. They showed themselves ready during a performance presented to the Province of Bali’s steering committee at Bali Banjar Kehen, in Kesimen Petilan Village, Denpasar last week. Denpasar Topeng Panca’ (five masks) group, Sekaa Gong Kencana Wiguna was given the go ahead to perform in the Bali Arts Festival. Head of Sekaa Gong Kencana Wiguna, Putu Adi Sujana explained that the theme of this performance was “Pagubangan Warak” or “The blood Spilling”. He also explained that the group only had a limited amount of time to rehearse because of the short notice that they were given by the Municipal Government and also because of the difficulty in scheduling rehearsals with members of the group who live far away. “This is the risk one takes when working with people with experience, on the other hand there is no need to worry about the quality of the work. After this performance we will evaluate the situation based on the directions given by the Provincial committee”, he said. Topeng Panca of Denpasar City_2 The group is made all the more interesting because Made Jimat is one of the organisers. Jimat is widely admired by the public for having played a pivotal role in the development of the Topeng Keras and Torpeng Arsa Wijaya masked dances. Also, Mayor of Denpasar representative IGN Jayanegara along with City of Denpasar’s Departement of Culture representative Dra. Ni Nyoman Sujati, MM are also giving their full spport to Sekaa Gong Kencana Wiguna. (kmb)

Jet weight puzzle to determine China tariff impact on Boeing

SINGAPORE/SHANGHAI - China on Wednesday announced plans to place a 25 percent tariff on certain U.S. aircraft, in a move expected to affect some older Boeing Co (BA.N) narrowbody models, according to documents from China’s Ministry of Commerce and the U.S. manufacturer. But although several analysts said China had spared the newer 737 MAX - key to future Boeing profits - the impact remained uncertain because of a lack of detail in the announcement and the fact that not all airplane characteristics are published. Boeing shares fell as much as 6 percent after China hit back at U.S. tariffs with the announcement of duties on key U.S. imports including soybeans, cars, beef and chemicals, as well as planes. These include aircraft

with an “empty weight” of between 15,000 kg and 45,000 kg, or 15 to 45 tonnes. Depending on how “empty weight” is defined, this leaves a question mark over the fate of Boeing’s new big-

selling 737 MAX 8 jet - though the larger MAX 9 and MAX 10 could be spared. The stakes are high. The United States exported $15 billion of aircraft to China in 2016, ranking equally with agricultural products like soybeans as the biggest category of goods. Several definitions of “empty weight” are used in the aircraft industry and the ministry document gave no explanation. Two industry experts said the rules most likely refer to the “manufacturer’s empty weight,” or the core aircraft structure. But manufacturers are usually shy about publishing this number because of its commercial sensitivity, while they do give estimates for the slightly higher “operating empty weight,” which includes airline crew and some equipment, but not fuel. Yet even this number can vary according to an airline’s specific requirements, so it is seen as a guideline. Whatever category is used, the range appears comfortably to include the current-generation 737 narrowbody aircraft, which is in the midst of being replaced by the newer 737 MAX.

737 MAX 8 IMPACT UNCLEAR Boeing documents available online list the “operating empty weight” (OEW) of the 737-700, 737-800 and 737-900 well within the tariff zone at 37.6 to 42.9 tonnes. The “manufacturer’s empty weight” (MEW) would typically be about 1-1.5 tonnes lower, two airplane appraisal experts said. In contrast, the newer 737 MAX 8 is heavier than its predecessor, with an operating empty weight of 45,070 kg, according to a Boeing document published in August 2017. Depending on how rules are applied, this leaves it hovering close to the tariff border line and potentially still exposed to sanctions if the more conservative “manufacturer” scale is used. “I would expect a non-variable weight (MEW) to be used as the benchmark, as OEW will vary from operator to operator,” said Stuart Hatcher, chief operating officer of UK-based advisory firm IBA, adding this would pull the jet below 45 tonnes. Even if the more generous OEW weight format were used, not all 737 MAX 8s might escape as some use lighter layouts. “A 70kg drop is pretty easy once you get into the realms of low-cost carriers or standard single-class operations,” Hatcher added. Boeing said in a statement that while the United States and China have both outlined positions that could harm the global aerospace

industry, nothing drastic has happened yet. “We will continue in our own efforts to proactively engage both governments and build on the recent assurances by U.S. and Chinese leaders that productive talks are ongoing,” it said. Chinese airlines have been on a buying spree from Boeing and rival Airbus (AIR.PA) as air travel grows. Boeing and China’s Commercial Aircraft Corp of China (COMAC) are expected to open a 737 completion center in the coastal city of Zhoushan to install interiors and paint liveries this year. The bulk of published 737 orders from Chinese that have not yet been delivered are for the newer MAX version. However, China Southern Airlines (600029.SS), Ruili Airlines and Okay Airways each have two 737-800s on order and Xiamen Airlines has four more, according to the Boeing order book. Asked if the airline’s plane buying plans could shift away from Boeing, China Eastern Airlines Corp (600115. SS) Chief Executive Ma Xulun said on Wednesday “it’s too early to say, we will keep an eye on the situation of the China-U.S. trade war.” Apart from some Boeing jets, the Gulfstream G650, a large corporate jet manufactured by General Dynamics Corp (GD.N), also falls into the weight range targeted for tariffs.

“ Lukat Gni ”, To maintain balance and purity of macrocosm and microcosm

Residents of Satria Kawan Palace, Paksebali village, Dawan, organized the lukat gni or flame war tradition. This tradition is carried out through generations every year falling on new moon of the Balinese ninth month or at the night of Pengrupukan or the day before celebration of Nyepi, Monday (Mar. 27). Lukat gni also called flame war is derived from two words, namely lukat and gni. Lukat or melukat means cleansing of all impurities and the unseen while gni means fire. Lukat gni can be interpreted as a tradition of cleansing or purifying the microcosm and macrocosm from any kind of impurities by means of fire. This tradition is also aimed at maintaining balance of nature and humans to result in harmony in the implementation of the catur bratha penyepian or five

abstinences. This lukat gni tradition begins with a joint worship at temples or family temple to invoke safety and smoothness for the implementation of lukat gni. Dozens of youths that take part in this activity are then heading for the catus pata or central intersection of the village to carry out the tradition. Here, the participants further slammed the fire of tied danyuh (dried coconut leaves) onto each opponent. No injuries are seen despite being hit by fire. Moreover, there is no resentment among the participants. The atmosphere is getting festive with the accompaniment of baleganjur orchestra. Spiritual figure of Satria Kawan Palace, Mangku A.A. Gde Anom Merta, said that flame war is a heritage tradition of Satria Kawan Palace. “As younger generations, we must continue and preserve the

traditions having been passed down by the elders here. This tradition has actually existed since around hundreds of years ago,” he said after the implementation of the lukat gni. According to him, the lukat gni often known as flame war is one of the purificatory rites carried out to purify the macrocosm and microcosm. Implementation of this annual tradition is expected to be able to neutralize negative effects and create harmony in ourselves and the balance of the universe. “Through this lukat gni, we will create harmony and balance of the universe,” he said. A participant of lukat gni, A.A. Gde Baskara Diningrat, said that he took this tradition to preserve the heritage. Armed with selfconfidence, he said, the heat of the fire afflicting to the body will not

be felt. Every fire is believed to eliminate all the impurities inside. “With the confidence I have, the more exposed to the fire, the more

impurities will be missing from our body,” said Baskara who participates regularly in this tradition every year. (kmb)

Chinese defense minister says China will ‘support’ Russia against America BEIJING - Chinese Defense Minister Says China will ‘Support’ Russia Against America China’s new defense minister Wei Fenghe has reportedly said during a visit to Moscow that China is ready to support Russia against the US. “I am visiting Russia as a new defense minister of China to show the world a high level of development of our bilateral relations and firm determination of our armed forces to strengthen strategic cooperation,” Wei said at a meeting with Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu, according to a report by state-run Tass Russian News Agency. “Second, to support the Russian side in organizing the Moscow International Security Conference the Chinese side has come to show Americans the close ties between the armed forces of China and Russia, especially in this situation. We’ve come to support you,” he added. “The Chinese side is ready to express

with the Russian side our common concerns and common position on important international problems at international venues as well.” Wei is attending the seventh Moscow International Security Conference with a delegation of other high-level Chinese military officials. He emphasized to the Russian press that his trip was coordinated directly with Chinese President Xi Jinping. The annual security conference hosted by Russia’s Defense Ministry is focusing this year on the defeat of terrorists in Syria. The Russian side is said to be sharing its experience on combating ISIL. It’s also providing assessments on future developments in the Middle East, including post-conflict rehabilitation. “Security issues facing Europe, Asia, Africa and Latin America will also be in the spotlight of the forum. Special session will address ‘Soft power’ phenomenon as a tool to pursue military-political objectives,” the ministry said in a statement. (afp)

Debts needed to finance priority projects: Finance ministry JAKARTA - Director of Strategy and Portfolio of the Finance Ministry Scenaider Siahaan said debts are needed by the government to finance priority projects such as infrastructure projects and human recourse development. In a discussion held by Indonesian Association of Alumnus of Indonesian University (Iluni) here on Tuesday, Scenaider delay of priority projects could result in higher cost of implementation in the future.

He said the government spending is for improvement in productivity and quality of the people through investment in human resources, health facility and education. “Now many people have been free from illiteracy that the quality of human resources has improved,” Scenaider said. He said improved quality of the people would be result in higher productivity that contribute to economic growth. “In turn it would increase tax revenues that could be used to repay the debts. We think the present tax revenues are safe and would be

healthier ahead,” Scenaider said. Based on official record of the Finance Ministry, the government debts by the end of February 2018 reached Rp4,034.8 trillion or 29.2 percent of the country`s GDP. The debts included Rp3,257.26 trillion in state bonds (80.73 percent) and Rp777.54 trillion in loans (19 percent). “In the past, the main sources were loan, now is state securities as loans have limitations that could not meet our requirements in development,” Scenaider added.

Turkey, Russia, Iran urge ‘lasting ceasefire’ in Syria ANKARA - The presidents of Iran, Turkey and Russia vowed to work for a lasting ceasefire after over seven years of civil war in Syria, following a summit aimed at boosting both peace prospects and also their influence in the country. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Iran’s Hassan Rouhani and Russia’s Vladimir Putin reaffirmed their commitment to cooperating for “the achievement of a lasting ceasefire between the conflicting parties”, a joint com-

munique said. The meeting in Ankara was the second such tripartite summit after the first hosted by Putin in November in the Black Sea city of Sochi, in a new symbol of an increasingly deep cooperation. However there was no major breakthrough announced after the summit meeting, and comments by the trio indicated possible tensions in what analysts see as a potentially brittle alliance. The three powers have backed

peace talks in the Kazakh capital Astana, which they argue are a parallel process to UN-supported discussions in Geneva. Erdogan insisted their meetings and the Astana talks were not an “alternative” to the Geneva process to find peace in Syria, at a postsummit press conference. But the three presidents said that so far, “the Astana format had been the only effective international initiative that had helped reduce violence across Syria and had contributed to peace and stability”. Experts say that Ankara, Moscow and Tehran are looking to take advantage of the waning Western influence in Syria and reluctance to commit militarily. Hours before the summit, US President Donald Trump said he wanted to “bring our troops back home” from Syria after indicating last week the US would withdraw from the country “very soon”. But Rouhani hit back, complaining that the “Americans say something different every day.” Unlike the West, the three countries have deployed significant military resources in Syria, with Tehran having a strong ground presence and Moscow ruling the skies. Turkey meanwhile drove out Kurdish militia from Afrin city on March 18, two months after it

launched an offensive in northern Syria supporting Syrian rebels. Ankara has indicated Turkey could extend its operation to the Kurdish-held town of Manbij and further east, as well as the northern Syrian town of Tal Rifaat. “We are ready to work together with our Iranian and Russian friends to make Tal Rifaat region liveable for our Syrian brothers and sisters,” Erdogan said. So far the three powers -- whose imperial predecessor states spent much of the last centuries at war -- have managed to keep a lid on their differences on Syria. While Moscow and Tehran support the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad politically and militarily, Turkey has repeatedly called for his removal and supported Syrian opposition fighters. But experts say disputes between Moscow and Ankara could come to the fore when the regime turns its attention to Idlib province. Idlib’s civilian infrastructure is largely controlled by the jihadist alliance Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), led by Syria’s former Al-Qaeda affiliate. Turkey is keen to prevent a Russia-backed regime assault on the province home to around 2.5 million people. But Moscow wants Ankara to also exert influence over the jihadists in control of Idlib.

Tensions may also be emerging behind the scene between Russia and Iran, with Moscow much more concerned to press for reform under Assad than Tehran. Meanwhile, according to the Iranian presidency, Rouhani said in the closed-door session that the Afrin area taken by Turkey and its allied forces should be handed over to the Syrian regime’s army. He argued that the Syrian army “is still the symbol of this country’s national sovereignty”. Turkey’s reaction was not made public. Erdogan also expressed alarm over the situation in Eastern Ghouta near Damascus, which has come under heavy regime bombardment over the last weeks, creating a major humanitarian crisis. Syrian state news agency SANA said evacuations from the former rebel bastion’s main town of Douma of Jaish al-Islam fighters and family members were ongoing for a third day. Erdogan said that the bloodshed in Ghouta had been “ruthless” but avoided any direct criticism of Russia and Putin as the backers of the Syrian regime. More than 350,000 people have been killed since the war began following anti-government protests in 2011, while millions have been internally displaced or forced to flee. (afp)

Non-active SE Sulawesi governor gets 12 years in jail for corruption

JAKARTA - The Jakarta Corruption Court on Wednesday night sentenced non-active Southeast Sulawesi governor Nur Alam to 12 years` imprisonment and fined him Rp1 billion or face another six months in jail for being involved in a corruption case. The panel of judges, led by Diah Siti Basariah, with Duta Baskara, Sunarso, Sigit Herman Binaji and Joko Subagyo as members also agreed to require Nur Alam to pay Rp2.7 billion in replacement fund and revoke his political rights for five years after serving his jail term. “If the defendant cannot afford to pay the replacement fund one month after the court`s verdict has

fixed legal force, the public prosecutor will confiscate his wealth to cover the replacement fund. And if the defendant has not adequate wealth, then he will be sentenced to another five years in jail,” judge Diah said. Nur Alam was found guilty of issuing dubious mining licenses which have inflicted Rp1.59 trillion in state losses and receiving a gratification of Rp40.268 billion. The sentence is six years lighter than that sought by the public prosecutors who have demanded that the defendant be sentenced to 18 years in jail and fined Rp1 billion or face another 1 year`s imprisonment.

Indonesia, Malaysia want better cooperation on films

JAKARTA - The Indonesian and Malaysian film industry players have agreed to cooperate in order to enhance the quality of cinema in both the countries. The matter was raised in a meeting between the Indonesian movie actors, artists, directors and film producers and the Malaysian Artists Union delegation in Jakarta, Friday. The Indonesian side, among others, was represented by senior artists, Roy Marteen and Ati Cancer, movie directors Adisurya Abdi and Tarmizi Abka, as well as a number of producers and other film industry players. The president of the Malaysian Artists Union, Zed Zaidi, said cooperation between the two

countries is expected to increase opportunities in the Malaysian and the Indonesian film industries. He noted cooperation on films between the two countries actually has been going on for a long time, either through joint film production, or the involvement of film artists. In fact, he added that Indonesia and Malaysia had held a movie award event “Anugerah Serumpun” (literally means cognate award). “With this partnership, we want to be a bridge for the two countries` film industries to move forward, and we hope that the award event `Anugerah Serumpun` can be held again,” he emphasized. The Malaysian Artists Union delegation is represented by 20 film

industry players, including actors, artists, directors and producers and they are on a three-day visit from January 5 to 7. Meanwhile, Tarmizi Abka, director, and initiator of the meeting said the gathering was expected to improve the quality of film resources of both countries. “Through the meeting, we expect the younger generation of our film industries will be getting better and better,” the director of “Jejak Cinta” remarked. He also hoped joint events, which involve the Indonesian and Malaysian filmmakers, will continue in the future, and even include film industries from other countries. (ant)

Formula 1 bosses to reveal sport’s future

The Boga Shipwreck

AMLAPURA - Following the enormous success of the USS Liberty Shipwreck in Tulamben, the North of Bali now has a new shipwreck. The “Boga” was sunk in September 2012 in front of the beach of Kubu (Karangasem Regency, not very far from Tulamben) with the idea of creating another point of aggregation for marine life and a new dive destination to attract tourists in an area of Bali still largely underdeveloped. The Boga was a former 150tonne cargo ship, almost 40 metres in length, and it now lies on a sandy bottom between 13 and 32

metres deep, perpendicular to the shore. After being purchased by the owners of Relax Bali Hotel (Kubu), the boat was donated to the Karangasem Regency to establish a new diver’s attraction and increase the cash flow in the area. The ship is almost intact, and this is a huge difference for people who are used to diving in the USS Liberty site, as after so many years of being submerged, it has fragmented in to many pieces. The Gunung Agung eruption of the late ‘60s was also an important factor in this deterioration. Conversely, the Boga includes some interesting pieces, like the ship’s steering

wheel, a VW car in the storage area, and the propeller, still intact at the maximum depth of about 33 metres. Some of these pieces are made of wood, so they will probably disappear quite soon, leaving only the metallic framework. Shipwrecks are famous for being an “aggregation device” for marine life. At the moment, after almost three months underwater, the boat is still empty and quite clean: apart from some ‘implanted’ corals, only some green algae and sponges are starting to cover the ship’s surfaces. But fish are already interested in this new shelter: damselfish, fusiliers and surgeonfish

are moving all around the wreck, in a kind of anticipation of what this wreck hopefully will become in the next few years. Two giant trevallies also accompanied me during the dive. Corals, especially the hard ones, need time to grow up. Divers lucky enough to dive the Boga steadily over time in the next months or years will have the wonderful opportunity to witness an “ecological succession”, the change in the species structure over time. “Pioneer” species like algae and some soft corals will start colonizing the ship in the next few months. These species reproduce

at a very high rate, grow quickly, have a short life span, and a low competitive ability. Depending on the conditions and on the environmental disturbance, quite slowly these species will be replaced by other species, like hard corals and other encrusting animals, needing more time to settle, but afterwards they will become very difficult to eradicate by competing organisms. A shipwreck covered by branched corals and soft colourful animals, surrounded by thousands of fish is every diver’s dream. It will take time (probably no less than 10-15 years), but for sure it’s worth the wait. (net)

F1 motorsports boss Ross Brawn will explain the plans of Liberty Media, which bought the commercial rights last year, on cost control, revenue and technical rules. Plans include ways of cutting costs, creating a more equitable split of revenue among teams, a simplified engine and an increased number of standard parts. It will be the first time teams have heard this amount of detail on Liberty’s plans. F1 is refusing to comment on the detail of the presentation - bosses have said they prefer to try to do their business in private to avoid creating a public debate on major issues. But the overarching aim is to create a better on-track spectacle and make competing in the sport a more profitable business for all participants at a time when more than half the teams are said to be struggling to make ends meet. F1’s plans, with which governing body the FIA is said to be in alignment, are not expected to be presented as ‘take it or leave it’. But Liberty’s fundamental position is that the sport has to change and time is running out to do so. Even with room for negotiation, the plans are likely to create unease among the teams. The car manufacturers involved in the sport have already made

clear their opposition to proposals put forward by F1 and the FIA for simplified engines from 2021. F1 and the FIA want to keep the current architecture of 1.6-litre V6 turbo hybrid engines but with a simplified energy recovery system that both reduces costs and attracts new entrants.

opposition to the plan and are currently objecting to the proposal to remove the part of the hybrid system that recovers energy from the turbo, the so-called MGU-H. This is the device that allows the engines to run at revolutionary levels of efficiency. But it is also highly complex and expensive and is seen as part of the reason for

Mercedes’ domination of the sport since 2014. Plans to increase the number of standardised parts on cars - for example by forcing teams to use the same gearbox internals - are seen by Liberty as a way of reducing costs while having no impact on the audience. Ferrari president Sergio Mar-

chionne has already said it will object to what he has described as plans by Brawn “to fight against the DNA of F1”. The big teams are also likely to oppose any attempt to reduce the amount of revenue they receive, especially after the sport’s income fell last year, reducing the prize money fund by about 5%. (net)

SOUTH CAROLINA - British number one Johanna Konta suffered a shock second-round defeat to Fanny Stollar in the Charleston Open in South Carolina. Sixth seed Konta, 26, lost 3-6 4-6 to the 19-year-old Hungarian qualifier and world number 219. The world number 22, who had a bye in the first round, beat Stollar in the Fed Cup in February. She lost 62% of points on her second serve and failed to force a break point in the second set. “She is really tough to play against so I was coming here expecting nothing,” said Stollar, who hit 28 winners and now plays Dutch number 12 seed Kiki Bertens. “I was just going to play my

game and focus on every point. I really just tried to keep my serve, break hers, and keep her behind the baseline.” Second seed Petra Kvitova also fell to a surprise defeat in the first clay court event of the WTA season, losing to fellow Czech Kristyna Pliskova 6-1, 1-6, 3-6. The two-time Grand Slam champion eased through the opening set but, despite breaking Pliskova five times, she also made 44 unforced errors in a haphazard performance. After her slow start, the aggressive Pliskova seized command to claim the second and the world number 77 broke twice in the decider to seal victory.

“My serve was horrible in the first set, so I had to focus on my serve and the rest of the game was better then as well,” said Pliskova, who spurned six match points. Pliskova will next play Russian Elena Vesnina, who beat American Taylor Townsend 6-4 6-1. Meanwhile, German fifth seed Julia Gorges beat Kristie Ahn of the United States 2-6 6-4 7-6 to set up a match with Japan’s Naomi Osaka, who won her first WTA title with victory at Indian Wells in March. And last year’s US Open finalist Madison Keys defeated Lara Arruabarrena of Spain 6-1 3-6 6-3 and will face Italian Camila Giorgi in the third round. (net)

Barcelona 4 Roma 1: two own goals gift Catalans the win, Luis Suarez also scores in stinker

Barcelona were out of sorts, but Roma were out of luck. A deeply forgettable first leg sees the Catalan side all-but in the Champions League semi-finals. And yet the scoreline fails to tell the tale. Sluggish and slow, Barcelona laboured through a first half hour in which neither side attempted much apart from occasional dives in the penalty area. Edin Dzeko and Andrew Iniesta both went down looking, while Alessandro Florenzi hit the deck in the area with Nelson Semedo in attendance. The Dutch ref was unmoved by all. After 38 minutes, Barcelona had the lead. Iniesta crossed, looking for Messi, and the luckless Roma skipper Daniele De Rossi slotted it past his own keeper. Messi himself was down in the box soon after, but the referee frustrated Barcelona supporters. Roma fans were also disappointed shortly afterwards

Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool are the perfect pair IBP/net

Admirers often ask what is Liverpool’s secret. How is it they – certainly more than any club in England – are able to regularly generate such nights, even during relatively barren periods of their history? Liverpool thrives when there is synergy between the manager and The Kop, and when the ghosts of the past are deployed to terrorise the opponent rather undermine the hosts. The man in charge has to be more than a tactician. He must respect nostalgia with a modern twist; he must be the embodiment of the values of the supporters in order to galvanise them, to make them trust, listen and believe every proclamation worthy of inclusion on the next banner. Here is a case in point. It is hard to imagine another club, certainly in this country, where the fanbase is so fascinated by the liberal leanings of their coach. When Klopp expressed his views on Brexit to Telegraph Sport last week, it felt as reassuring to the local fans as when he finally completed the signing of Virgil Van Dijk. Are fans of Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester

City so besotted with the political allegiance of their manager? It is another of those Anfield idiosyncrasies in a city where football can be a vehicle for radical expression. With respect to my own employers, no Tory can sit comfortably in the Anfield dug-out (or certainly no-one admitting to be such). Klopp’s attitudes and success energising Borussia Dortmund made him the perfect fit and he obviously presumed Anfield would be this way. Although it is doubtful he will ever admit it publicly, there must have been some concerns in those early months. The stadium was going through a period of sedation when he made his first appearance against Southampton in October, 2015 and it is often still too quiet for mid-table visitors. The manager has regularly felt compelled to demand more. The Europa League run of 2016 brought reassurance. Klopp said the scenes around the comeback against Dortmund that season eclipsed anything he had experienced in Germany. “Wait until you get this team in the Champions League knockout stage then,” was the response. He was correct to be moderate in his post-match appraisal after the City win – there is still much to be done - but should his side complete the job he will have another meaningful reference point for future fixtures on this scale. Moreover, Klopp will reflect on the impact of Anfield and feel his instinct validated when spurning others and waiting for Liverpool to come after his brief break from the game. Liverpool is a major club like no other. There is pressure, but no time-scale for success. When some commentators randomly spurt out banalities like ‘he has done well, but he must win a trophy’ they presume the manager has been set an imposing deadline that does not exist. This is because at any other grand institution worthy of

when a foul on Lorenzo Pellegrinin was given no more than six inches outside the penalty area. That was about it for a forgettable first half in a muted Nou Camp. The most noise the crowd had made was their whistling to drown out UEFA’s Champions League anthem before play. It was as poor an advert for the competition as Liverpool vs Manchester City was thrilling. 20 seconds after the interval, Roma should have been level. Barcelona were half asleep, Florenzi crossed, and Perotti put a free header wide from point-blank range. Ten minutes later, they were left even further deflated. Ivan Rakitic crossed, Kostas Manolas stuck out a leg and clipped the ball onto his own post. It rebounded, hit Manolas again, and spun over the line. Samuel Umtiti, who was pressuring the Greek, claimed it, but it was quickly ruled a second own goal.

On 59 minutes, an actual Barcelona goal worthy of the name: Messi produced a moment of real quality as he played Luis Suarez in with the outside of the boot. The Uruguayan hit a good effort, Roma goalkeeper Allison palmed it, but only into the path of Gerard Pique, who could not miss. With the tie surely gone, Roma suddenly committed men forward and gave Barcelona a tricky time.

Klopp’s wisdom – Real Madrid, Barcelona or Bayern Munich – the idea you could go three years without a trophy and still have boardroom and fans desperate to ensure you hang around for another four is inconceivable. Klopp will go another season without the Premier League title, but there is perspective and recognition for how far he has taken the team rather than question marks against his ability to eventually deliver it. Should Liverpool win the Champions League, despite the considerable investment in the team and plentiful resources at Klopp’s disposal, it will still be perceived as defying the odds against superpowers more established and accustomed to recent success. Where else in world football could Klopp have this? Especially when he looks at Antonio Conte, on the verge of losing his job a year after winning the title. Or Jose Mourinho, admired but broadly unloved even in his own arena(s). No wonder many of the Liverpool’s manager’s peers feel envy for the patience and support afforded. There is a lingering suspicion that Bayern have not given up on Klopp. That they are yet to confirm who will be in charge at The Allianz Arena next season because they have privately been sending feelers in the Liverpool manager’s direction to such extent his own representative issued what could be interpreted as the kind of ‘we’re flattered, it’s not the right time, but keep in touch’ message once sent to Fenway Sports Group before Brendan Rodgers was appointed. Mercifully for Liverpool, Klopp has reassured it will be a while longer before German fans are scrutinising the trajectory of his flight home. The most thrilling aspect of Liverpool’s win last night was not simply the demonstration of how far Klopp has already led his club, but the feeling there is so much further to go. (rtr)

The World Cup winning-goalkeeper has taken the next step in his recovery from a foot injury that has kept him out of action since September Bayern Munich goalkeeper Manuel Neuer has trained with a ball for the first time in over six months as he continues his recovery from a foot injury. The Germany international completed a series of goalkeeping drills in a session at Bayern’s Sabener Strasse training ground on Thursday. The 32-year-old only resumed running outdoors last week, having been sidelined since the middle of September following surgery on a metatarsal problem. “For the first time in more than six months, Manuel Neuer has completed a light session of dedicated goalkeeping training and confidently beat away shots at his goal,” Bayern said via their official website. “The FCB number one resumed running last Tuesday – and now he’s back on the ball.” Sven Ulreich has deputised in Neuer’s absence, but it is hoped the former Schalke star will return before the end of the Bundesliga season. Jupp Heynckes’ side face Augsburg on Saturday, knowing a win will be enough to secure the title. (afp)

Barcelona 4 Roma 1: two own goals gift Catalans the win, Luis Suarez also scores in stinker

Barcelona were out of sorts, but Roma were out of luck. A deeply forgettable first leg sees the Catalan side all-but in the Champions League semi-finals. And yet the scoreline fails to tell the tale. Sluggish and slow, Barcelona laboured through a first half hour in which neither side attempted much apart from occasional dives in the penalty area. Edin Dzeko and Andrew Iniesta both went down looking, while Alessandro Florenzi hit the deck in the area with Nelson Semedo in attendance. The Dutch ref was unmoved by all. After 38 minutes, Barcelona had the lead. Iniesta crossed, looking for Messi, and the luckless Roma skipper Daniele De Rossi slotted it past his own keeper. Messi himself was down in the box soon after, but the referee frustrated Barcelona supporters. Roma fans were also disappointed shortly afterwards

Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool are the perfect pair IBP/net

Admirers often ask what is Liverpool’s secret. How is it they – certainly more than any club in England – are able to regularly generate such nights, even during relatively barren periods of their history? Liverpool thrives when there is synergy between the manager and The Kop, and when the ghosts of the past are deployed to terrorise the opponent rather undermine the hosts. The man in charge has to be more than a tactician. He must respect nostalgia with a modern twist; he must be the embodiment of the values of the supporters in order to galvanise them, to make them trust, listen and believe every proclamation worthy of inclusion on the next banner. Here is a case in point. It is hard to imagine another club, certainly in this country, where the fanbase is so fascinated by the liberal leanings of their coach. When Klopp expressed his views on Brexit to Telegraph Sport last week, it felt as reassuring to the local fans as when he finally completed the signing of Virgil Van Dijk. Are fans of Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester

City so besotted with the political allegiance of their manager? It is another of those Anfield idiosyncrasies in a city where football can be a vehicle for radical expression. With respect to my own employers, no Tory can sit comfortably in the Anfield dug-out (or certainly no-one admitting to be such). Klopp’s attitudes and success energising Borussia Dortmund made him the perfect fit and he obviously presumed Anfield would be this way. Although it is doubtful he will ever admit it publicly, there must have been some concerns in those early months. The stadium was going through a period of sedation when he made his first appearance against Southampton in October, 2015 and it is often still too quiet for mid-table visitors. The manager has regularly felt compelled to demand more. The Europa League run of 2016 brought reassurance. Klopp said the scenes around the comeback against Dortmund that season eclipsed anything he had experienced in Germany. “Wait until you get this team in the Champions League knockout stage then,” was the response. He was correct to be moderate in his post-match appraisal after the City win – there is still much to be done - but should his side complete the job he will have another meaningful reference point for future fixtures on this scale. Moreover, Klopp will reflect on the impact of Anfield and feel his instinct validated when spurning others and waiting for Liverpool to come after his brief break from the game. Liverpool is a major club like no other. There is pressure, but no time-scale for success. When some commentators randomly spurt out banalities like ‘he has done well, but he must win a trophy’ they presume the manager has been set an imposing deadline that does not exist. This is because at any other grand institution worthy of

when a foul on Lorenzo Pellegrinin was given no more than six inches outside the penalty area. That was about it for a forgettable first half in a muted Nou Camp. The most noise the crowd had made was their whistling to drown out UEFA’s Champions League anthem before play. It was as poor an advert for the competition as Liverpool vs Manchester City was thrilling. 20 seconds after the interval, Roma should have been level. Barcelona were half asleep, Florenzi crossed, and Perotti put a free header wide from point-blank range. Ten minutes later, they were left even further deflated. Ivan Rakitic crossed, Kostas Manolas stuck out a leg and clipped the ball onto his own post. It rebounded, hit Manolas again, and spun over the line. Samuel Umtiti, who was pressuring the Greek, claimed it, but it was quickly ruled a second own goal.

On 59 minutes, an actual Barcelona goal worthy of the name: Messi produced a moment of real quality as he played Luis Suarez in with the outside of the boot. The Uruguayan hit a good effort, Roma goalkeeper Allison palmed it, but only into the path of Gerard Pique, who could not miss. With the tie surely gone, Roma suddenly committed men forward and gave Barcelona a tricky time. Barcelona were idling and had several warnings as Kevin Strootman, sub Gregoire Defrel and Perotti all had chances. On 80 minutes, Perotti played a nice ball into the box, Edin Dzeko took a great touch and fired home. With an away goal in the bag, Roma improbably had dreams of making this interesting back in Italy. Even that modest hope was soon dashed, further defensive incompetence to the fore.

Formula 1 bosses to reveal sport’s future

The Boga Shipwreck

AMLAPURA - Following the enormous success of the USS Liberty Shipwreck in Tulamben, the North of Bali now has a new shipwreck. The “Boga” was sunk in September 2012 in front of the beach of Kubu (Karangasem Regency, not very far from Tulamben) with the idea of creating another point of aggregation for marine life and a new dive destination to attract tourists in an area of Bali still largely underdeveloped. The Boga was a former 150tonne cargo ship, almost 40 metres in length, and it now lies on a sandy bottom between 13 and 32

metres deep, perpendicular to the shore. After being purchased by the owners of Relax Bali Hotel (Kubu), the boat was donated to the Karangasem Regency to establish a new diver’s attraction and increase the cash flow in the area. The ship is almost intact, and this is a huge difference for people who are used to diving in the USS Liberty site, as after so many years of being submerged, it has fragmented in to many pieces. The Gunung Agung eruption of the late ‘60s was also an important factor in this deterioration. Conversely, the Boga includes some interesting pieces, like the ship’s steering

wheel, a VW car in the storage area, and the propeller, still intact at the maximum depth of about 33 metres. Some of these pieces are made of wood, so they will probably disappear quite soon, leaving only the metallic framework. Shipwrecks are famous for being an “aggregation device” for marine life. At the moment, after almost three months underwater, the boat is still empty and quite clean: apart from some ‘implanted’ corals, only some green algae and sponges are starting to cover the ship’s surfaces. But fish are already interested in this new shelter: damselfish, fusiliers and surgeonfish

are moving all around the wreck, in a kind of anticipation of what this wreck hopefully will become in the next few years. Two giant trevallies also accompanied me during the dive. Corals, especially the hard ones, need time to grow up. Divers lucky enough to dive the Boga steadily over time in the next months or years will have the wonderful opportunity to witness an “ecological succession”, the change in the species structure over time. “Pioneer” species like algae and some soft corals will start colonizing the ship in the next few months. These species reproduce

at a very high rate, grow quickly, have a short life span, and a low competitive ability. Depending on the conditions and on the environmental disturbance, quite slowly these species will be replaced by other species, like hard corals and other encrusting animals, needing more time to settle, but afterwards they will become very difficult to eradicate by competing organisms. A shipwreck covered by branched corals and soft colourful animals, surrounded by thousands of fish is every diver’s dream. It will take time (probably no less than 10-15 years), but for sure it’s worth the wait. (net)

F1 motorsports boss Ross Brawn will explain the plans of Liberty Media, which bought the commercial rights last year, on cost control, revenue and technical rules. Plans include ways of cutting costs, creating a more equitable split of revenue among teams, a simplified engine and an increased number of standard parts. It will be the first time teams have heard this amount of detail on Liberty’s plans. F1 is refusing to comment on the detail of the presentation - bosses have said they prefer to try to do their business in private to avoid creating a public debate on major issues. But the overarching aim is to create a better on-track spectacle and make competing in the sport a more profitable business for all participants at a time when more than half the teams are said to be struggling to make ends meet. F1’s plans, with which governing body the FIA is said to be in alignment, are not expected to be presented as ‘take it or leave it’. But Liberty’s fundamental position is that the sport has to change and time is running out to do so. Even with room for negotiation, the plans are likely to create unease among the teams. The car manufacturers involved in the sport have already made

clear their opposition to proposals put forward by F1 and the FIA for simplified engines from 2021. F1 and the FIA want to keep the current architecture of 1.6-litre V6 turbo hybrid engines but with a simplified energy recovery system that both reduces costs and attracts new entrants.

opposition to the plan and are currently objecting to the proposal to remove the part of the hybrid system that recovers energy from the turbo, the so-called MGU-H. This is the device that allows the engines to run at revolutionary levels of efficiency. But it is also highly complex and expensive and is seen as part of the reason for

Mercedes’ domination of the sport since 2014. Plans to increase the number of standardised parts on cars - for example by forcing teams to use the same gearbox internals - are seen by Liberty as a way of reducing costs while having no impact on the audience. Ferrari president Sergio Mar-

chionne has already said it will object to what he has described as plans by Brawn “to fight against the DNA of F1”. The big teams are also likely to oppose any attempt to reduce the amount of revenue they receive, especially after the sport’s income fell last year, reducing the prize money fund by about 5%. (net)

SOUTH CAROLINA - British number one Johanna Konta suffered a shock second-round defeat to Fanny Stollar in the Charleston Open in South Carolina. Sixth seed Konta, 26, lost 3-6 4-6 to the 19-year-old Hungarian qualifier and world number 219. The world number 22, who had a bye in the first round, beat Stollar in the Fed Cup in February. She lost 62% of points on her second serve and failed to force a break point in the second set. “She is really tough to play against so I was coming here expecting nothing,” said Stollar, who hit 28 winners and now plays Dutch number 12 seed Kiki Bertens. “I was just going to play my

game and focus on every point. I really just tried to keep my serve, break hers, and keep her behind the baseline.” Second seed Petra Kvitova also fell to a surprise defeat in the first clay court event of the WTA season, losing to fellow Czech Kristyna Pliskova 6-1, 1-6, 3-6. The two-time Grand Slam champion eased through the opening set but, despite breaking Pliskova five times, she also made 44 unforced errors in a haphazard performance. After her slow start, the aggressive Pliskova seized command to claim the second and the world number 77 broke twice in the decider to seal victory.

“My serve was horrible in the first set, so I had to focus on my serve and the rest of the game was better then as well,” said Pliskova, who spurned six match points. Pliskova will next play Russian Elena Vesnina, who beat American Taylor Townsend 6-4 6-1. Meanwhile, German fifth seed Julia Gorges beat Kristie Ahn of the United States 2-6 6-4 7-6 to set up a match with Japan’s Naomi Osaka, who won her first WTA title with victory at Indian Wells in March. And last year’s US Open finalist Madison Keys defeated Lara Arruabarrena of Spain 6-1 3-6 6-3 and will face Italian Camila Giorgi in the third round. (net)

Chinese defense minister says China will ‘support’ Russia against America BEIJING - Chinese Defense Minister Says China will ‘Support’ Russia Against America China’s new defense minister Wei Fenghe has reportedly said during a visit to Moscow that China is ready to support Russia against the US. “I am visiting Russia as a new defense minister of China to show the world a high level of development of our bilateral relations and firm determination of our armed forces to strengthen strategic cooperation,” Wei said at a meeting with Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu, according to a report by state-run Tass Russian News Agency. “Second, to support the Russian side in organizing the Moscow International Security Conference the Chinese side has come to show Americans the close ties between the armed forces of China and Russia, especially in this situation. We’ve come to support you,” he added. “The Chinese side is ready to express

with the Russian side our common concerns and common position on important international problems at international venues as well.” Wei is attending the seventh Moscow International Security Conference with a delegation of other high-level Chinese military officials. He emphasized to the Russian press that his trip was coordinated directly with Chinese President Xi Jinping. The annual security conference hosted by Russia’s Defense Ministry is focusing this year on the defeat of terrorists in Syria. The Russian side is said to be sharing its experience on combating ISIL. It’s also providing assessments on future developments in the Middle East, including post-conflict rehabilitation. “Security issues facing Europe, Asia, Africa and Latin America will also be in the spotlight of the forum. Special session will address ‘Soft power’ phenomenon as a tool to pursue military-political objectives,” the ministry said in a statement. (afp)

Debts needed to finance priority projects: Finance ministry JAKARTA - Director of Strategy and Portfolio of the Finance Ministry Scenaider Siahaan said debts are needed by the government to finance priority projects such as infrastructure projects and human recourse development. In a discussion held by Indonesian Association of Alumnus of Indonesian University (Iluni) here on Tuesday, Scenaider delay of priority projects could result in higher cost of implementation in the future.

He said the government spending is for improvement in productivity and quality of the people through investment in human resources, health facility and education. “Now many people have been free from illiteracy that the quality of human resources has improved,” Scenaider said. He said improved quality of the people would be result in higher productivity that contribute to economic growth. “In turn it would increase tax revenues that could be used to repay the debts. We think the present tax revenues are safe and would be

healthier ahead,” Scenaider said. Based on official record of the Finance Ministry, the government debts by the end of February 2018 reached Rp4,034.8 trillion or 29.2 percent of the country`s GDP. The debts included Rp3,257.26 trillion in state bonds (80.73 percent) and Rp777.54 trillion in loans (19 percent). “In the past, the main sources were loan, now is state securities as loans have limitations that could not meet our requirements in development,” Scenaider added.

Turkey, Russia, Iran urge ‘lasting ceasefire’ in Syria ANKARA - The presidents of Iran, Turkey and Russia vowed to work for a lasting ceasefire after over seven years of civil war in Syria, following a summit aimed at boosting both peace prospects and also their influence in the country. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Iran’s Hassan Rouhani and Russia’s Vladimir Putin reaffirmed their commitment to cooperating for “the achievement of a lasting ceasefire between the conflicting parties”, a joint com-

munique said. The meeting in Ankara was the second such tripartite summit after the first hosted by Putin in November in the Black Sea city of Sochi, in a new symbol of an increasingly deep cooperation. However there was no major breakthrough announced after the summit meeting, and comments by the trio indicated possible tensions in what analysts see as a potentially brittle alliance. The three powers have backed

Rouhani and Putin were in Ankara for the summit with Erdogan.

peace talks in the Kazakh capital Astana, which they argue are a parallel process to UN-supported discussions in Geneva. Erdogan insisted their meetings and the Astana talks were not an “alternative” to the Geneva process to find peace in Syria, at a postsummit press conference. But the three presidents said that so far, “the Astana format had been the only effective international initiative that had helped reduce violence across Syria and had contributed to peace and stability”. Experts say that Ankara, Moscow and Tehran are looking to take advantage of the waning Western influence in Syria and reluctance to commit militarily. Hours before the summit, US President Donald Trump said he wanted to “bring our troops back home” from Syria after indicating last week the US would withdraw from the country “very soon”. But Rouhani hit back, complaining that the “Americans say something different every day.” Unlike the West, the three countries have deployed significant military resources in Syria, with Tehran having a strong ground presence and Moscow ruling the skies. Turkey meanwhile drove out Kurdish militia from Afrin city on March 18, two months after it

launched an offensive in northern Syria supporting Syrian rebels. Ankara has indicated Turkey could extend its operation to the Kurdish-held town of Manbij and further east, as well as the northern Syrian town of Tal Rifaat. “We are ready to work together with our Iranian and Russian friends to make Tal Rifaat region liveable for our Syrian brothers and sisters,” Erdogan said. So far the three powers -- whose imperial predecessor states spent much of the last centuries at war -- have managed to keep a lid on their differences on Syria. While Moscow and Tehran support the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad politically and militarily, Turkey has repeatedly called for his removal and supported Syrian opposition fighters. But experts say disputes between Moscow and Ankara could come to the fore when the regime turns its attention to Idlib province. Idlib’s civilian infrastructure is largely controlled by the jihadist alliance Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), led by Syria’s former Al-Qaeda affiliate. Turkey is keen to prevent a Russia-backed regime assault on the province home to around 2.5 million people. But Moscow wants Ankara to also exert influence over the jihadists in control of Idlib.

Tensions may also be emerging behind the scene between Russia and Iran, with Moscow much more concerned to press for reform under Assad than Tehran. Meanwhile, according to the Iranian presidency, Rouhani said in the closed-door session that the Afrin area taken by Turkey and its allied forces should be handed over to the Syrian regime’s army. He argued that the Syrian army “is still the symbol of this country’s national sovereignty”. Turkey’s reaction was not made public. Erdogan also expressed alarm over the situation in Eastern Ghouta near Damascus, which has come under heavy regime bombardment over the last weeks, creating a major humanitarian crisis. Syrian state news agency SANA said evacuations from the former rebel bastion’s main town of Douma of Jaish al-Islam fighters and family members were ongoing for a third day. Erdogan said that the bloodshed in Ghouta had been “ruthless” but avoided any direct criticism of Russia and Putin as the backers of the Syrian regime. More than 350,000 people have been killed since the war began following anti-government protests in 2011, while millions have been internally displaced or forced to flee. (afp)

Non-active SE Sulawesi governor gets 12 years in jail for corruption

JAKARTA - The Jakarta Corruption Court on Wednesday night sentenced non-active Southeast Sulawesi governor Nur Alam to 12 years` imprisonment and fined him Rp1 billion or face another six months in jail for being involved in a corruption case. The panel of judges, led by Diah Siti Basariah, with Duta Baskara, Sunarso, Sigit Herman Binaji and Joko Subagyo as members also agreed to require Nur Alam to pay Rp2.7 billion in replacement fund and revoke his political rights for five years after serving his jail term. “If the defendant cannot afford to pay the replacement fund one month after the court`s verdict has

fixed legal force, the public prosecutor will confiscate his wealth to cover the replacement fund. And if the defendant has not adequate wealth, then he will be sentenced to another five years in jail,” judge Diah said. Nur Alam was found guilty of issuing dubious mining licenses which have inflicted Rp1.59 trillion in state losses and receiving a gratification of Rp40.268 billion. The sentence is six years lighter than that sought by the public prosecutors who have demanded that the defendant be sentenced to 18 years in jail and fined Rp1 billion or face another 1 year`s imprisonment.

Indonesia, Malaysia want better cooperation on films

JAKARTA - The Indonesian and Malaysian film industry players have agreed to cooperate in order to enhance the quality of cinema in both the countries. The matter was raised in a meeting between the Indonesian movie actors, artists, directors and film producers and the Malaysian Artists Union delegation in Jakarta, Friday. The Indonesian side, among others, was represented by senior artists, Roy Marteen and Ati Cancer, movie directors Adisurya Abdi and Tarmizi Abka, as well as a number of producers and other film industry players. The president of the Malaysian Artists Union, Zed Zaidi, said cooperation between the two

countries is expected to increase opportunities in the Malaysian and the Indonesian film industries. He noted cooperation on films between the two countries actually has been going on for a long time, either through joint film production, or the involvement of film artists. In fact, he added that Indonesia and Malaysia had held a movie award event “Anugerah Serumpun” (literally means cognate award). “With this partnership, we want to be a bridge for the two countries` film industries to move forward, and we hope that the award event `Anugerah Serumpun` can be held again,” he emphasized. The Malaysian Artists Union delegation is represented by 20 film

industry players, including actors, artists, directors and producers and they are on a three-day visit from January 5 to 7. Meanwhile, Tarmizi Abka, director, and initiator of the meeting said the gathering was expected to improve the quality of film resources of both countries. “Through the meeting, we expect the younger generation of our film industries will be getting better and better,” the director of “Jejak Cinta” remarked. He also hoped joint events, which involve the Indonesian and Malaysian filmmakers, will continue in the future, and even include film industries from other countries. (ant)

The City of Denpasar’s Council of the Arts is preparing a presentation of “Topeng Panca” for the Mask Parade that will be part the prestigious Bali Arts Festival (PKB) that is in its 38th year.

Denpasar Topeng Panca’ (five masks) group, Sekaa Gong Kencana Wiguna was given the go ahead to perform in the Bali Arts Festival. Head of Sekaa Gong Kencana Wiguna, Putu Adi Sujana explained that the theme of this performance was “Pagubangan Warak” or “The blood Spilling”. He also explained that the group only had a limited amount of time to rehearse because of the short notice that they were given by the Municipal Government and also because of the difficulty in scheduling rehearsals with members of the group who live far away. “This is the risk one takes when working with people with experience, on the other hand there is no need to worry about the quality of the work. After this performance we will evaluate the situation based on the directions given by the Provincial committee”, he said.

Jet weight puzzle to determine China tariff impact on Boeing

SINGAPORE/SHANGHAI - China on Wednesday announced plans to place a 25 percent tariff on certain U.S. aircraft, in a move expected to affect some older Boeing Co (BA.N) narrowbody models, according to documents from China’s Ministry of Commerce and the U.S. manufacturer. But although several analysts said China had spared the newer 737 MAX - key to future Boeing profits - the impact remained uncertain because of a lack of detail in the announcement and the fact that not all airplane characteristics are published. Boeing shares fell as much as 6 percent after China hit back at U.S. tariffs with the announcement of duties on key U.S. imports including soybeans, cars, beef and chemicals, as well as planes. These include aircraft

with an “empty weight” of between 15,000 kg and 45,000 kg, or 15 to 45 tonnes. Depending on how “empty weight” is defined, this leaves a question mark over the fate of Boeing’s new big-

selling 737 MAX 8 jet - though the larger MAX 9 and MAX 10 could be spared. The stakes are high. The United States exported $15 billion of aircraft to China in 2016, ranking equally with agricultural products like soybeans as the biggest category of goods. Several definitions of “empty weight” are used in the aircraft industry and the ministry document gave no explanation. Two industry experts said the rules most likely refer to the “manufacturer’s empty weight,” or the core aircraft structure. But manufacturers are usually shy about publishing this number because of its commercial sensitivity, while they do give estimates for the slightly higher “operating empty weight,” which includes airline crew and some equipment, but not fuel. Yet even this number can vary according to an airline’s specific requirements, so it is seen as a guideline. Whatever category is used, the range appears comfortably to include the current-generation 737 narrowbody aircraft, which is in the midst of being replaced by the newer 737 MAX.

737 MAX 8 IMPACT UNCLEAR Boeing documents available online list the “operating empty weight” (OEW) of the 737-700, 737-800 and 737-900 well within the tariff zone at 37.6 to 42.9 tonnes. The “manufacturer’s empty weight” (MEW) would typically be about 1-1.5 tonnes lower, two airplane appraisal experts said. In contrast, the newer 737 MAX 8 is heavier than its predecessor, with an operating empty weight of 45,070 kg, according to a Boeing document published in August 2017. Depending on how rules are applied, this leaves it hovering close to the tariff border line and potentially still exposed to sanctions if the more conservative “manufacturer” scale is used. “I would expect a non-variable weight (MEW) to be used as the benchmark, as OEW will vary from operator to operator,” said Stuart Hatcher, chief operating officer of UK-based advisory firm IBA, adding this would pull the jet below 45 tonnes. Even if the more generous OEW weight format were used, not all 737 MAX 8s might escape as some use lighter layouts. “A 70kg drop is pretty easy once you get into the realms of low-cost carriers or standard single-class operations,” Hatcher added. Boeing said in a statement that while the United States and China have both outlined positions that could harm the global aerospace

industry, nothing drastic has happened yet. “We will continue in our own efforts to proactively engage both governments and build on the recent assurances by U.S. and Chinese leaders that productive talks are ongoing,” it said. Chinese airlines have been on a buying spree from Boeing and rival Airbus (AIR.PA) as air travel grows. Boeing and China’s Commercial Aircraft Corp of China (COMAC) are expected to open a 737 completion center in the coastal city of Zhoushan to install interiors and paint liveries this year. The bulk of published 737 orders from Chinese that have not yet been delivered are for the newer MAX version. However, China Southern Airlines (600029.SS), Ruili Airlines and Okay Airways each have two 737-800s on order and Xiamen Airlines has four more, according to the Boeing order book. Asked if the airline’s plane buying plans could shift away from Boeing, China Eastern Airlines Corp (600115. SS) Chief Executive Ma Xulun said on Wednesday “it’s too early to say, we will keep an eye on the situation of the China-U.S. trade war.” Apart from some Boeing jets, the Gulfstream G650, a large corporate jet manufactured by General Dynamics Corp (GD.N), also falls into the weight range targeted for tariffs.

“ Lukat Gni ”, To maintain balance and purity of macrocosm and microcosm

Residents of Satria Kawan Palace, Paksebali village, Dawan, organized the lukat gni or flame war tradition. This tradition is carried out through generations every year falling on new moon of the Balinese ninth month or at the night of Pengrupukan or the day before celebration of Nyepi, Monday (Mar. 27). Lukat gni also called flame war is derived from two words, namely lukat and gni. Lukat or melukat means cleansing of all impurities and the unseen while gni means fire. Lukat gni can be interpreted as a tradition of cleansing or purifying the microcosm and macrocosm from any kind of impurities by means of fire. This tradition is also aimed at maintaining balance of nature and humans to result in harmony in the implementation of the catur bratha penyepian or five

abstinences. This lukat gni tradition begins with a joint worship at temples or family temple to invoke safety and smoothness for the implementation of lukat gni. Dozens of youths that take part in this activity are then heading for the catus pata or central intersection of the village to carry out the tradition. Here, the participants further slammed the fire of tied danyuh (dried coconut leaves) onto each opponent. No injuries are seen despite being hit by fire. Moreover, there is no resentment among the participants. The atmosphere is getting festive with the accompaniment of baleganjur orchestra. Spiritual figure of Satria Kawan Palace, Mangku A.A. Gde Anom Merta, said that flame war is a heritage tradition of Satria Kawan Palace. “As younger generations, we must continue and preserve the

traditions having been passed down by the elders here. This tradition has actually existed since around hundreds of years ago,” he said after the implementation of the lukat gni. According to him, the lukat gni often known as flame war is one of the purificatory rites carried out to purify the macrocosm and microcosm. Implementation of this annual tradition is expected to be able to neutralize negative effects and create harmony in ourselves and the balance of the universe. “Through this lukat gni, we will create harmony and balance of the universe,” he said. A participant of lukat gni, A.A. Gde Baskara Diningrat, said that he took this tradition to preserve the heritage. Armed with selfconfidence, he said, the heat of the fire afflicting to the body will not

be felt. Every fire is believed to eliminate all the impurities inside. “With the confidence I have, the more exposed to the fire, the more

impurities will be missing from our body,” said Baskara who participates regularly in this tradition every year. (kmb)

Dozens of poor people taught to sew

BANGLI — Dozens of poor people in Bangli were provided with a two month training in sewing skills as part of the government of Bangli’s efforts to create entrepreneurs in the district. It is hoped that this training will allow the participants to become financially independent and contribute to a prosperous local economy. Head of the Bangli Social Agency, Nengah Sukarta, said on Wednesday (Apr. 4) that sewing training for the poor was held in two locations: at the vocational skill training (BLK)

Kayuambua, Susut and at the Bunga Bali Foundation with a total of 50 productive aged people being trained. “We started the training on March 29 and it will go on for two

months. Both men and women are being trained”, he explained. Sukarta added that this is the third time that the government is training people to sew. The Social Agency has

found this to be an effective way of making poor people more independent and improving the economy. From the results of monitoring done in the field, 90 percent of the poor people who received this training now offer sewing services from their homes. “There are people provide sewing services for customary attire like kebaya shirts, as well as simple

tailoring”, he explained. Sukarta added that the Social Agency plans to provide advanced sewing training in the future, to improve the skills of participants and allow them to further develop their home businesses, however they have yet to find a qualified instructor. “We also provide trainees with sewing machines”, said Sukarta.

Embankment built in estuary of Mati River to prevent seawater floods

IBP/kmb

An embankment will also be added to the estuary area to dam up seawater floods and prevent the surges of water from upstream to be contained.

MANGUPURA - Legian and Kuta are experience flooding during the rainy season. Last Feruary for example, both areas were hit with moderate to serious flooding as the Mati River overflowed. The Mati River is therefor being installed with infrastructure to minimize flooding. The Water Resources Network Executive (PJSA) at the Bali-Penida River Agency (BWS) will build flood control infrastructure in central Mati River. When contacted on Wednesday (Apr. 4), Chief Unit of PJSA of Bali-Penida River Agency, I Putu Eddy Purnawijaya, said the Mati River needs to have flood control. “THere are floods every year and in Febuary it was quite dramatic”, he

said, explaining that work will be done from the central to the downstream portion of the river. The work will be divided into two segments. The first segment of this project will start from the area of Jalan Gunung Soputan to Jalan Sunset Road. Then, the second segment continues towards the estuary area in Kuta. “The work includes normalization of the river. Some pumps will also be installed on Jalan Sunset Road and in the estuary”, he said. An embankment will also be added to the estuary area to dam up seawater floods and prevent the surges of water from upstream to be contained. It is hopes that sea water will thus not flow into people’s homes as it did earlier this year.

“The embankment will be equipped with a pump to suction water away from residential areas”, he added. Purnawijaya also revealed that the work along 8 kilometers of the river will be done using funds sourced from the state budget. The budget for the first segment is IDR 180 billion, while the second segment will use a budget of IDR 246 billion. “First we will return the rivers flow capacity to normal then an embankment will be installed if necessary so that flash floods do not cause overflow”, he concluded. The projects accommodating proposals from local communities are currently under preparation and measurement. The Mati River project is scheduled for completion in 2019. (kmb23)

Fiji PM warns of ‘frightening new era’ as he blames deadly cyclone on climate change

RIYADH - King Salman reiterated Saudi Arabia’s support for a Palestinian state after his son and heir apparent said Israelis were entitled to live peacefully on their own land - a rare statement by an Arab leader. The king also emphasized the need to advance the peace process in a phone call with U.S. President Donald Trump on Monday night, made after Israeli security forces killed 16 Palestinians last week during a demonstration along the Israel-Gaza border. The number rose to 17 on Tuesday. King Salman reaffirmed “the kingdom’s steadfast position toward the Palestinian issue and the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people to an independent state with Jerusalem as its capital”, state news agency SPA said on Tuesday. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas praised King Salman, thanking him for his support. “President Abbas expressed his gratitude and appreciation ... for his supportive positions of the Palestinian people, the Palestinian cause and the cause of Jerusalem and its sacred sites,” said a statement published by the official Palestinian WAFA news agency. Abbas also praised Saudi Arabia for continuing to support the right of the Palestinian people to estab-

lish their independent state with East Jerusalem as its capital, the statement said. The report did not refer to the comments by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in an interview published on Monday by U.S. magazine The Atlantic, which are the latest public sign that ties between Saudi Arabia and Israel may be growing closer. Asked if he believes the Jewish people have a right to a nation-state in at least part of their ancestral homeland, Prince Mohammed was quoted as saying: “I believe the Palestinians and the Israelis have the right to have their own land. But we have to have a peace agreement to assure the stability for everyone and to have normal relations.” Saudi Arabia, birthplace of Islam and home to its holiest shrines, does not recognize Israel. It has maintained for years that normalizing relations hinges on Israeli withdrawal from Arab lands captured in the 1967 Middle East war, territory Palestinians seek for a future state. Increased tension between Riyadh and Tehran has fueled speculation that shared interests may push Saudi Arabia and Israel to work together against what they see as a common Iranian threat. (afp)

FIJI - Fiji’s prime minister has blamed climate change for a cyclone which killed five people and caused severe flooding, saying the Pacific nation is now under constant threat and has entered a “frightening new era”. As authorities tried to restore power and water supplies across various islands, Frank Bainimarama said Fiji was facing a “fight for our very survival” and urged other countries to support efforts to tackle the causes of climate change. “We are now at an almost constant level of threat from these extreme weather events that are becoming more frequent and more severe because of climate change,” he said. “As a nation we are starting to build our resilience in response to the frightening new era that is upon us.” Cyclone Josie brought torrential rains and led to heavy flooding on the weekend. It came just six weeks after Cyclone Gita in February, which caused some property damage in Fiji but devastated Tonga, and two years after Cyclone Winston, which killed 44 people. Fiji and other small Pacific na-

tions have led a desperate push for global action to combat climate change, saying that rising sea levels and intense weather events have already begun to make parts of their territory uninhabitable. Mr Bainimarama assumed a leading role in international climate talks last November when he served as president of the UN’s COP23 negotiation in Bonn. “We need to get the message out loud and clear to the entire world about the absolute need to confront this crisis head on,” he said. Most scientists believe climate change will reduce the frequency of cyclones as temperature differences between the earth’s surface and the atmosphere decrease. But it will lead to more intense cyclones – including higher wind speeds and greater rainfall - as warmer water temperatures add to overall precipitation and to the amount of energy at the water

surface. Australia’s Bureau of Meteorology said it was difficult to detect trends about cyclone intensity in the region because of a lack of consistent data. But it noted: “We may have fewer cyclones but the ones we do have will be stronger.” Professor James Renwick, an expert in atmospheric sciences at Victoria University of Wellington, told Radio New Zealand in February he expected cyclone intensity to increase because there will be “more energy in the climate system”. “Warmer seas, warmer air - so when you have a tropical cyclone it’s likely to be more intense,” he said. Since the latest cyclone in Fiji, authorities have been clearing debris, restoring roads and assisting people who have taken shelter in dozens of evacuation centres. (net)

GIANYAR — Two foreigners from Bulgaria were arrested by the ranks of the Ubud Police on Wednesday morning (Apr. 5). The alleged perpetrators 28 year old US and 26 year old MH were caught tryign use the skimming technique at a CIMB Niaga ATM on Jalan Bisma, Ubud Kelod. Police are still developing the case. Based on information compiled,the two foreigners were first seen by restaurant security, I Dewa Gede Anom who grew suspicious by the long amount of time the two foreigners were taking in the ATM. His suspicion increased when he saw one of the foreigners cover the CCTV with duct tape. I Dewa Gede Anom immediately called the police as he kept an eye on the suspicious characters. A team from the Criminal Investigation Unit led by Andika Arya Pratama arrived at the crime scene where the two foreigners were continuing their suspicious activities. When the police approached the ATM and questioned the two foreigners, the Bulgarians denied any wrong doing. However the

Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, is the one person, as people in Washington joke, who could take down Trump, according to a recent profile in The New York Times. (Interestingly, the president hasn’t had anything to say about her on Twitter, a rarity for him.) While she may be a new face to some of us, the entertainer has actually been in the public eye for over a decade, working as an actress and director in the adult film industry and even appearing in a couple of mainstream films. Judd Apatow, who directed Daniels in both “Knocked Up” and “The 40-Year-Old Virgin,” said, “She is not someone to be underestimated.” We may have ignored her over the past decade, but we’ve got proof that she was right under our noses the whole time.

CCTV camera covered in duck tape was enough evidence to bring the two to the Ubud Police Station. Police also secured a silver APV vehicle with license DK 1194 DQ at the Ubud Police Station. Other evidence secured included two pieces waist bags, three handphones, four ATM cards, two black purses, five hats, one role of black duct tape, one white wire rod, a pair of black-yellow pliers, two red pruning tools, one screwdriver, ten connectors, one folding knife, one curved iron, one Wi-Fi connector and one red rounded-end lock. Meanwhile, the crime scene was cordoned off with a police line but was opened later that afternoon after the scene of the crime had been investigated. When asked for his confirmation, Chief of Gianyar Police Criminal Investigation Unit, Denny Septiawan, said that two suspects had indeed been arrested for allegedly conducting an ATM break-in but added that they are still developing the case.

Fishermen profession is still pursued by thousands of residents of Klungkung district.

LOS ANGELES - Kendall and Kylie Jenner now have one less lawsuit on their hands. The sisters and design duo have reached a settlement with photographer Michael Miller, after his image of Tupac appeared on a t-shirt in the “vintage” tee collection they released for their Kendall + Kylie line last summer. Accordingly, the reality TV stars will be paying their own legal fees, as will Miller. Outside of that, though, it’s unknown whether or not a payment was made, TMZ reports. They still have another lawsuit stemming from the same collection, though. Notorious B.I.G.’s estate filed suit after the Jenner sisters used the late rapper’s image in their collection. “This is misappropriation at its finest,” his estate’s lawyer Julian K. Petty told TMZ last year. “I’m curious to hear the justification. I’m even more curious to hear the proposed resolution.” The Jenner’s never did share their intended resolution, however they did issue a statement immediately

after Biggie’s mother, Violetta Wallace, called them out on Instagram, writing, “I am not sure who told @ kyliejenner and @kendalljenner that they had the right to do this.The disrespect of these girls to not even reach out to me or anyone connected to the estate baffles me. I have no idea why they feel they can exploit the deaths of 2pac and my Son Christopher to sell a t-shirt. This is disrespectful, disgusting, and exploitation at its worst!!!” In their apology, which was shared on Instagram, they wrote, “These designs were not well thought out and we deeply apologize to anyone that has been upset and/or offended, especially to the families of the artists. We are huge fans of their music and it was not our intention to disrespect these cultural icons in anyway. The tee shirts have been pulled from retail and all images have been removed. We will use this as an opportunity to learn from these mistakes and again, we are very sorry.” (net)

Head of the Klungkung Food and Fishery Agency, I Wayan Durma, admitted such condition. To maintain the profession having been passed through generations, the government has provided various types of infrastructure and facility assistance. Similarly, the latest aid is in the form of insurance. “Fishing as a side job has grown up about ten years ago. This happens because the fish catch is erratic due to nature condition. This is difficult to handle. If due to the matter of equipment, the government has given,” he said on Tuesday (Apr. 3). Seeing the condition, at the end of April or early May the district government plans to hold a maritime festival. According to this official from Nusa Penida, the inaugural event is not limited to commemorate the National Fishermen’s Day on April 6, but also to open the communication space with fishermen. The problems having been faced will be explored as much detail as possible to look for solutions. “This is meant to support fishermen to stay at sea. We will open programs,” he explained. In the festival, various fish-based foods will be promoted. This is also intended to arouse the emergence of creativity among the fisherman so as not only directly to sell their fish catch to the market. However, fishermen can process it into products having higher selling value. “This activity is scheduled to last for

three days,” he said. Division Head of Fishery, Made Gunadnya, added that other than natural conditions, the reduced fishing catches are also influenced by culture. Lately, fishermen in Klungkung have never sailed in a long time with a far radius. “It is different from fishermen elsewhere; they can sail for months to a considerable distance. If this can be done by fishermen in Klungkung, their fish catch is definitely more,” he explained accompanied by fisheries instructor, Dian Safitri. The no longer promising result was expressed by fisherman of Kusamba village, Dawan, Nengah Suryata, 45. Such condition caused one by one of the residents to stop being a fisherman. Nowadays, the only remaining fishermen are 25 people, mostly have been aged. This profession is no longer eyed by younger generation. The youths born from a family of fishermen prefer to migrate to urban areas. They are looking for a job whose results are considered more promising and prestigious. “Fisherman only remains one generation, only the current one, while the children no longer want to do it,” he said. Residents like Nengah Mandri, 46, leave her fisherman profession and chooses to take other jobs. By pursuing profession of fish net repairer, he can earn quite promising income. For large nets, he will be paid as much as IDR 500,000 which can be completed within five to seven days. On several occasions, he also tries to be a porter taking goods onto the boat to Nusa Penida. A day, he can earn IDR 100,000. “This work can be done every day. The result is more real, it no needs any preparation,” he explained. According to the data, the number of fishermen in Klungkung region reaches 1,200 people coalesced into 79 groups. (kmb45)

An example of cold storage room.

CAS built in Petang Market

MANGUPURA - Badung’s district government finally determined the location of the location for the establishment of a COld Storage Unit (CAS) at the Petang Traditional Market. The giant cold storage unit for storing agricultural produce is scheduled to be completed this year. When contacted on Wednesday (APR 4), President Director of PD Pasar, I Made Sutarma, confirmed that CAS food storage will be managed PD Pasar Badung. “The fund for management is indeed from us because the CAS will be located in our market. How it will be managed is still being discussed. My representative is still discussing the matter with the regional secretariat”, he said.

Separately, the Agriculture and Food Agency has also signed an MoU with a number of chili and onion farmers in Badung for the storing of their commodities in the CAS. Acting Head of the Badung Agriculture and Food Agency, Putu Oka Swadiana, confirmed that they are cooperating with PD Pasar Badung in the operation of the cold storage unit. “We have made MoU with some farmers in Badung. They will plant chili and onions which will be stored in CAS. We are also working with PD Pasar Badung”, he said. Oka Swadiana revealed that the CAS project will be completed this year, allowing chilies and onions to be stored and release farmers from the grip of fluctuating prices. Recently, the price of chili skyrocketed to IDR 70,000 per kilogram from the normal price of IDR 30,000 per kilogram. “Obviously, it will

Most tourists horrified by cockfighting GIANYAR - Tajen or cockfighting is an inseperable part of life for some Balinese people especially in especially for the tabuh rah ceremony. For many visitors to this island, however, it is considered quite horrifying. “Ya, that is because spurs are used in cockfighting, so tourists often find it horrible to see the chicken injuring each other like that”, explained Head of the Gianyar Tourist Office, A.A. Bagus Ari Brahmanta, when contacted on Wednesday (Apr. 4). Tourists who do not have respect for cockfighting include Americans, Eurepeans and Austrians visit-

ing Bali, particularly Gianyar. “Tourists from these countries rarely want to see cockfighting, whether it is tabuh rah (ritual-related) or cockfight that is used for gambling”, he said. Brahmanta added that Asian tourists - especially those from the Philippines often do like to watch cockfights. They will even come to Gianyar especially to see cockfighting. “The reason that Filipino tourists like to watch cockfighting is probably because they have a similar tradition in their country”, he said. (kmb35)

be accomplished this year. Now (Wednesday—Ed) we are also meeting with the Regional Secretary and PD Pasar”, he said. Regional Development Planning Board (Bappeda) of Badung had previously reported that the CAS development plan was still in progress. The program is being conducted in cooperation with PT Pura Agro Mandiri, Kudus, Central Java. To begin with, the chili and onions will be given priority for cold storage. Two units will be purchased at once - one for chilies and one for onions each with a capacity for 25 tons/ . As a starting point, it will be mainly given priority for the storage of chili and onion products. So, the procurement will build two units at once. One unit is intended for chili storage and another for onion storage with respective capacity of about 25 tons. (kmb27)

Aaron Tveit, Karen Olivo lead ‘Moulin Rouge’ stage adaptation

LOS ANGELES - Aaron Tveit and Karen Olivo will headline the new musical adaptation of “Moulin Rouge,” the stage adaptation of the 2001 Baz Luhrmann film. Tveit, a Broadway fan-favorite whose screen work has included the film version of “Les Miserables” and TV outings “Graceland” and “Grease Live,” will play the role Ewan McGregor played in the movie, with Tony winner Olivo (“West Side Story,” “In the Heights”) on board in the Nicole Kidman part.

The Rock finally explains his beef with Vin Diesel on ‘Fate of the Furious’

LOS ANGELES - We finally have some answers regarding what was arguably the biggest feud of 2016, outside of the election.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson gets remarkably candid about his beef with Fate of the Furious costar Vin Diesel in an extensive interview with Rolling Stone. Their rivalry, initially made public by Johnson, spurred headlines throughout production for the film (how could it not? Johnson called Diesel a “candy-ass” on Instagram), and later reiterated that it all boils down to their different mentalities. Johnson confirms that if you saw the film and suspected that he and Diesel did not film scenes together, you are indeed correct. “Vin and I had a few discussions, including an important face-to-face

in my trailer,” Johnson explained to RS. “And what I came to realize is that we have a fundamental difference in philosophies on how we approach moviemaking and collaborating. It took me some time, but I’m grateful for that clarity. Whether we work together again or not.” Johnson explained that he wasn’t sure what that meant for his involvement with the franchise in the future. “Right now I’m concentrating on making the spinoff as good as it can be,” he explained, referencing the film Hobbs and Shaw. “But I wish him all the best, and I harbor no ill will there, just because of the

clarity we have.” But don’t worry — just because there is clarity now does not mean The Rock has lost his pettiness. Thanks to interviewer Josh Eells, it’s plain and clear how Johnson really feels. “He considers this, then lets out a big, sly laugh. ‘Actually, you can erase that last part about ‘no ill will.’ We’ll just keep it with the clarity,’” Eells wrote in the profile. Johnson made similar comments to Entertainment Tonight about differing philosophies between the two in 2017, but it looks like time hasn’t healed all of the scars quite yet.

‘Cesspool’ paradise island of Boracay to shut in the Philippines

MANILA - The Philippines will shut its most famous holiday island for six months after the President called it a “cesspool”. Rodrigo Duterte has approved the temporary closure of Boracay after saying the waters off its famed white-sand beaches were being polluted with raw sewage. His spokesman confirmed the shutdown will commence on 26 April, but he did not clarify what the clean-up will involve. In 2017, two million tourists visited the island which is popular for its lively nightlife, turquoise seas and powdery sands. Thousands of livelihoods rely on the tourism industry, which is worth around $1bn (£710m) to the national economy. Reports suggest disaster funds would be activated to help affected workers, but business leaders have urged the government

to phase in the plans more slowly. “We are a bit depressed right now in the industry,” said Jose Clemente, president of the Tourism Congress of the Philippines. “I really feel for the people in Boracay. They really need to find ways to be employed, or at least keep their head above water for the next six months.” Some local business owners have expressed concern over how they will survive without an income. In February, the fiery president criticised the resort’s 500 hotel

owners and restaurateurs, accusing them of dumping sewage in the sea. “You go into the water, it’s smelly. Smell of what? S**t. Because it all comes out in Boracay,” Mr Duterte said. Officials have warned the island’s drainage system is sending untreated waste into the water - with a government study concluding the sewage will turn Boracay into a “dead island” in less than a decade unless action is taken. The environment ministry says 195 businesses and more than 4,000 residents are

not connected to sewer lines. Last month, environment undersecretary Jonas Leones told reporters that shutting down the tourist trade may include suspending ferry services, making the beaches off limits, and stationing police there “if necessary”. “An iron fist is needed to bring it back to its previous condition. It will be a temporary thing,” Mr Leones said. In response to Wednesday night’s announcement, some airlines have already cut back their services. As far back as 2005, experts were warning of the consequences of dumping rubbish Cebu Pacific told Reuters it has cancelled 14 daily round-trip flights to Caticlan and Kalibo, Boracay’s

two main gateways, from April 26 to October 25. Philippine Airlines said it would scale down services to the airports and add flights to other destinations instead. “We fully support the government’s intention to make Boracay fully safe and environmentally friendly,” said Jaime Bautista, the airline’s president.
