Springsteen ‘Born to Run’ manuscript is for sale

Associated Press Writer

NEW YORK — A handwritten working manuscript of Bruce Springsteen’s 1975 hit “Born to Run” will be offered at auction on Dec. 5, with a presale estimate of $70,000 to $100,000, Sotheby’s said Wednesday. The seller was not revealed. The auction house said the document used to be in the collection of Springsteen’s former manager, Mike Appel. Sotheby’s said most of the lines in this 1974 version, written in Long Branch, New Jersey, are apparently unpublished and unrecorded, but the manuscript does include “a nearly perfected chorus.” Springsteen’s thought process, written

in blue ink on a sheet of ruled notepaper, looks like this: “This town’ll rip the (out your) bones from yourback / it’s a suicide trap (rap) (it’s a trap to catchthe young) your dead unless / you get out (we gotto) while your young so (come on! / with) take myhand cause tramps / like us baby we were born to run.” “The imagery and tone are constant from the present manuscript to the final song,” the auctioneer said. There are also some words in the margins: “Wild” and “Angels” and a word that looks like “velocity,” with the letter “t’’ in Springsteen’s curlicue cursive. “Although Springsteen is known to have an intensive drafting process, few

LAS VEGAS — A judge denied O.J. Simpson’s bid for a new trial on an armed robbery and kidnapping conviction, ruling Wednesday that the evidence is overwhelming that the former football star “planned, organized and led” a group of armed men in a confrontation with two sports memorabilia dealers six years ago. Simpson had spent the last six months anxiously awaiting the ruling that he hoped would spring him from the medium-security prison where he has been jailed for five years. The football Hall of Famer based his appeal on claims of ineffective legal counsel. Simpson’s lawyers vowed Wednesday to keep appealing for his freedom. “He was disappointed and disheartened, as was his family,” lawyer Patricia Palm said of Simpson’s reaction to the news.

“But we’re definitely not giving up.” Simpson, 66, is serving nine to 33 years for his conviction on armed robbery, kidnapping and other charges. He was granted parole on some convictions in July, but still faces at least four more years in prison. Simpson was acquitted in 1995 in the stabbing deaths of his ex-wife and her friend after one of the most sensational trials in U.S. history Simpson’s next opportunity for freedom

will be in an appeal to the Nevada Supreme Court. His legal team planned to file a notice of appeal as early as next week with the state’s highest court. Palm said they’re also preparing a federal court claim that Simpson’s fair trial rights were violated. “He is looking forward to the appeal,” Palm said. “We’re confident that when we get to the right court we’ll get relief because he deserves relief.” The 101-page ruling by Clark County District Court Judge Linda Marie Bell comes after she held five days of hearings earlier this year on claims that Simpson’s former lawyer botched his 2008 trial and appeals to the Nevada Supreme Court. The hearings included testimony by Simpson. In her order released after business hours Tuesday, the judge ruled Simpson “failed to pinpoint significant errors that either alone or combined would have changed the outcome of his case. Additionally, Mr. Simpson has failed to demonstrate significant errors from his appeal.” The lawyer who handled Simpson’s trial and appeals, Yale Galanter, faulted Simpson’s current attorneys for questioning his work and said he felt vindicated. “In an effort to capture the spotlight, O.J.’s new legal team created a laundry list of falsehoods and attacked my reputation and integrity without contacting me to get the facts, review my files or review any of the documented evidence in the case,” Galanter said. Bell faulted Galanter for collecting excessive fees from Simpson and not hiring experts or investigators for his defense, and identified other mistakes. But the judge said none would have made a difference in the outcome.

Tourists sunbathing at Kuta Beach, Bali Island. Travel advisory issued by Australian government for its citizens that would visit Indonesia had not had an impact on Australian tourist arrivals to Bali especially Badung County. Nevertheless, Badung County worried if the central government did not immediately take action to improve the bilateral relations.

Government worries Australian tourist arrivals to decline Bali Post

MANGUPURA - Travel advisory issued by Australian government for its citizens that would visit Indonesia had not had an impact on Australian tourist arrivals to Bali especially Badung County. Nevertheless, Badung County worried if the central government did not immediately take action to improve the bilateral relations. “If the relationship between Indonesia and Australia continues to deteriorate, it will certainly affect the Australian tourist arrival in Bali,” said Head of Badung Gov-

ernment Tourism Office, Cokorda Raka Darmawan, Wednesday (Nov 27). Based on the data in the Badung Government Tourism Office, the

Australian travelers gave considerable contribution to tourism in Bali. Each month, the average visit of Australian tourists to Bali reached the range of 60,000-70,000. Such amount was quite large when compared to foreign travelers from other countries. During the deterioration of relations between Indonesia and Australia to the issuance of travel advisory, the tourist arrival of Australian market in Bali was still relatively stable and did not

do change significantly. “But it still needs to be confirmed again because we have no data for November,” he said. Further, his party expected the central government to take strategic steps to resolve the issue with the Australian government. Otherwise, there would be a possibility for the issuance of a travel warning. He added the target of foreign tourist arrival in 2013 reached 3 million people coming to Bali,

especially Badung. Meanwhile, domestic traveler was targeted to double of foreign tourist arrival or reached 6 million people. To pursue the target, Badung County attempted to arrange the attraction and potential tourist destinations. Currently, there were 33 tourist attractions and the number would increase as the emergence of new attractions such as the Pandawa Beach, Bangkung River Bridge and other attractions managed by private sectors.

In the event of complication of Amnion Fluid Embolism, the doctors could not predict whey the Amnion Fluid Embolism occurred.

Ethical Honorary Council Prof. Dr. Made Kornea Karkata. Kornea Karkata hoped the three doctors getting involved in the case could be released soon.

in Indonesia had a good faith to their patients. They always attempted to answer the complaint of patients as long as they were able to answer. He invited all doctors to make the moment into a self-reflection whether they all had applied the competencies, codes of conduct, guidelines and read the medical discipline. Additionally, he also invited all doctors to reject any criminalization against the doctor. (dgk)

The doctors explicitly rejected the criminalization against doctors. Mahayasa asserted that professional organization in national level such as the Minister of Health and Chairman POGI were jointly struggling to do a review against the case. He hoped the three doctors on behalf of Dewa Ayu Sasiary Prawani, Hendry Simanjuntak and Hendy Siagian to be immediately released, he said. Medical evidence had indicated if it was not an omission.

In other words, consumers have not been given the correct and honest explanation,” he said. His party did not question about the trading through online system, but the most important was to get permission, at least from the local government. “Everyone may perform online

business but at least it must be known by local government so that the consumers will not feel disadvantaged,” he said. Related to the settlement of complaints, Armaya said that his party resolved more disputes of consumers through mediation. For example, throughout the year 2012, a number of consumer complaints handled from January to December had been resolved through litigation or mediation between the consumers and businesses to get the best solution. “We have handled some of

those complaints so that no parties feel to be harmed, such as the companies have replaced the losses of consumers either in the form of goods or services,” he said. But on the other hand, he said, there was also a case to be prosecuted, considering such cases could not find any solution or settlement. “There are also legal cases that could not be resolved, then it was taken a class action suit as we have executed early in January 2013,” he said.

London exhibit features fashionista Isabella Blow Associated Press Writer

earliest designs. Blow met McQueen at his graduate fashion show in 1992, and famously bought up his entire collection. She commissioned headdresses for her wedding from Treacy when he was still a student. She wore their designs everywhere, and used her network to promote both men. Four years later McQueen dedicated a collection — his first to receive international acclaim — in tribute to her. In the same year, she also styled a successful show for Treacy. Treacy went on to work for Chanel and became Britain’s best-known milliner, while McQueen achieved further fame and success — until he, like Blow, lost his battle with depression and took his own life in 2010. The exhibition traced Blow’s early life and her aristocratic background, which curator Alistair O’Neill said was key to her appeal and success. “She traded on her family history and her Britishness,” he said. “She was this attractive, artistic figure. She had no money, but lots of stories and lots of style.”

Wacik chairs ASEAN’s mineral ministerial meeting Antara

NUSA DUA - Indonesia’s Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources Jero Wacik chaired the 4th Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Mineral Ministerial Meeting (AMIMM) on Thursday.

LONDON — She wore everything from a crystal-studded lobster to a tall ship made of feathers on her head, and chose a purple medieval robe for her wedding dress. Long before Lady Gaga rose to fame, British fashion editor and stylist Isabella Blow made theatrical clothes and outlandish headgear her personal trademark. A major exhibition opens in London Wednesday to celebrate the life and style of Blow, who is best known for discovering British designers Alexander McQueen and Philip Treacy when they were young students and promoting them as they rose to international acclaim. Eccentric, flamboyant and witty, Blow was editor at Tatler and other magazines, muse to designers and one of the most influential personalities in fashion before she committed suicide by drinking weed-killer in 2007. She was 48. “Isabella Blow was a champion of creative talent. So much that we know today would never have happened without her vision, and her support of British fashion and creativity was unique,” said Louise Wilson, a professor at Central Saint Martins college who taught McQueen and many other designers. The show at Somerset House features Blow’s personal collection of more than 100 rare designer items, including many of Treacy’s most dramatic hats and some of McQueen’s

The meeting aims to discuss a number of proposals, which had been formulated during the ASEAN Senior Officials’ Mineral Meeting (ASOMM) and ASOMM plus 3 on November 26 and 27. ASOMM Chairman R Sukhyar stated that the ASEAN senior officials’ meeting had agreed to discuss nine proposals during the AMIMM. Among the formulations was a proposal to include trade, investment and technology aspects in ASEAN’s mineral database. “The mineral database will be located in Indonesia and is ready to be launched during the ASEAN mineral ministerial meeting,” he said. The ASEAN mineral ministers will also discuss the desire of ASEAN to develop rare earth mineral utilization technology or tin ore mineral byproducts. Sukhyar pointed out that Indonesia also had an interest in the rare earth mineral utilization program, owing to the fact that Indonesia had many mineral deposits in a number of regions, particularly in the tin producing district of Bangka Belitung (Babel). Rare earth minerals have so far been wastefully disposed off together with

tailing, although the minerals are very useful for the telecommunications industry. Within the framework of cooperation with ASEAN, Japan said it was prepared to share technology used in the utilization of rare mineral deposits. The other important issue, which needed to be discussed during the fourth AMINN, is the strengthening of ASEAN’s capacity for protecting the environment of mining activities, postmining reclamation and mineral processing technology. The meeting will also discuss developments in the processing of sand quartz for the ceramic and glass industries, as well as acid waste processing management for the mineral industry, Sukhyar noted. In the meantime, Indonesia had earlier asked Japan, China and South Korea to be transparent about their mineral import requirements and provide guidance on the outlook for minerals to ensure market stability. “Guidance on the outlook, such as the guidance for energy, is very important to maintain balanced supply and demand in the region’s mineral and metal markets,”

Sukhyar said on Wednesday. Some ASEAN members, such as Indonesia, the Philippines, Laos, Myanmar and Vietnam are producers and exporters of metals and minerals, he pointed out. He noted that Indonesia and the Philippines were the main producers of nickel ore in the region, while Laos was a leading producer of gold. Myanmar, Vietnam and Indonesia are tin exporters. “Therefore, ASEAN is appropriately concerned about ensuring that supply and demand in the mineral and metal markets are balanced to ensure price stability,” he added. The Head of the Geology Agency under the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources stated that China and Japan have, so far, imported large quantities of metal and mineral ores from Indonesia, especially nickel, which is processed to produce stainless steel. He said Indonesia’s proposal had been received positively by the three ASEAN partners. “In the ASOMM+3 meeting, they accepted Indonesia’s proposal and even offered to assist in preparing the outlook,” he added.

NYC stores trim their windows as gifts to the city Associated Press Writer

This Nov. 20, 2013 photo shows a shopper leaving Barneys New York next to the store’s Christmas window featuring a light show called “City Lights.” The window is one of four holiday windows promoting a charitable collaboration between Barneys and Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter.

NEW YORK — Forget window shopping, some of Manhattan’s biggest and most storied retailers say their elaborate seasonal window displays are a gift to passers-by. Reimagining every major holiday covered in a slick coating of ice, recreating cozy Christmas-morning scenes and paying homage to a local legend can be a yearlong labor of love. “Every store has their own style,” says David Hoey, senior director of visual presentation at Bergdorf Goodman. “We try to pick a theme that will lend itself for us to go to town. We all do.” At his corner of 57th Street and Fifth Avenue, arguably one of the most famous shopping intersections in the world, Hoey isn’t just celebrating Christmas, he’s paying homage to 12 holidays, including Valentine’s Day, Independence Day and Halloween. One of his favorite windows is the April Fool’s Day display that depicts a lovely outdoor springtime scene — assembled upside down.

Kitty-corner from Bergdorf is Tiffany & Co. and its scenes that aim to capture the New York holiday of your best dreams and memories. “We are telling a story of the lives that go on here and the interactions that happen on Christmas Day and on that morning in New York City,” says Richard Moore, vice president of creative visual merchandising. He does add a little product to the scenes — it is a store, after all — but the holiday windows aren’t as much about pushing sales. “It’s about holiday spirit and celebrated tradition. The windows are for all ages, all different cultures. We just want you to stop and look and engage in our windows.” Hoey eagerly visits the windows of the other big stores. It’s a treat and a tradition, he says. “Window dressers and the people who do window displays is a very small community. We look at everyone’s windows. We are just as excited to see the other windows as everyone else is.” Moore soaks up the season, too. “There’s no better time to think about (the) next holiday than this holiday.”

Heritage protection fee considered invent new problem Bali Post

DENPASAR - The policy to charge a donation of USD 10 intended for heritage protection was criticized by the Bali tourism businesspeople. Without obvious consideration, this policy was assessed to invent and tended to kindle new problems. “Tax collection should not invent. Rationally, we consider that donation worth USD 10 looks like an inventing policy,” said Deputy Chairman of the Indonesian Tourism Industry Association (GIPI) of Bali Chapter, Bagus Sudibya. He also considered the heritage protection rule would be potentially counter-productive because it was not socialized. Even, if it was enforced without obvious consideration, it would result in rejection in the future. “We also question whether the cultural preservation is the responsibility of travelers or people becoming the owner of the culture. Meanwhile, concrete things like the charge of admission fee to tourist objects or cultural heritage is natural thing,” he said. According to him, the rule-making related to the protection of cultural heritage should be seen in terms of law and fairness. To that end, the experts had to formulate and find a reason whether the rule was worthy or unworthy to be promulgated. “Tax collection is essentially for the welfare of its people. On that account, in the future the rule on cultural heritage should be assessed, enacted, implemented and monitored consistently and professionally,” he said. Nevertheless, Bagus Sudibya admitted if he still doubted the donation rule because the legal basis in use as a reference was not clear. “We are still very dubious about the rationale of collecting the donation worth USD 10. Moreover, the regulation will be reinforced in regional bylaw or gubernatorial regulation. Meanwhile, the law used as a reference is not clear,” he said. It was mentioned that every regional bylaw or gubernatorial regulation should be based on the higher law. Any regional bylaw or gubernatorial regulation should not be contradictory to the higher rules. For example, regional bylaw or gubernatorial regulation on Hotel and Restaurant Tax (PHR) would surely have a legal basis. It considered many aspects by referring to the government regulation or law on Hotel and Restaurant Tax. “If it has been set forth in the Hotel and Restaurant Tax for the same interest, then it should not be applied two times on the other rules,” he said. He added when the basic consideration of the benefits of regulation on heritage protection based on the benefits of regional bylaw or gubernatorial regulation on the collection of Hotel and Restaurant Tax for cultural preservation, the regional bylaw or gubernatorial regulation would automatically disqualify in the judicial review. “Conversely, if in the collection of Hotel and Restaurant Tax is not mentioned the benefits of cultural preservation, this can become a consideration in the regional bylaw / gubernatorial regulation on the heritage protection,” he said.

Do not let be chaotic, give space to street vendors

RLD

The existence of street vendors (PKL) often becomes a bad precedent for the urban area arrangement. By all means, the activities of street vendors occupy road body and sidewalks, so as not to leave enough space for pedestrians. Such condition draws public concern because they can kindle traffic congestion and disrupt pedestrian movement. Besides, they also create dirty and unhealthy environment. It does not include the problem in terms of population administrative compliance. He acknowledged, for some groups of people, street vendors actually became a solution because they provided a cheaper price. For low-income communities, street vendors were the choice. This made the control of street vendors in strategic locations controversial in terms of social aspect. Actually, they were tenacious worker struggling to support their family every day. The enforcement efforts undertaken all this time often ended with a clash and got physical resistance from the street vendors. Together with other components of society, the street vendors sometimes made a demonstration. Actually, if their existence was well arranged and styled consistently, the existence of street vendors would even add the exoticism of a location in the urban area. “There should be a

Inter-hamlet road and rice field at Tembles hit by flood Negara (Bali Post)—

Heavy rain flushing the area of Mendoyo, Tuesday night (Nov 26) caused a number of places to flood. As happened at Tembles hamlet, Penyaringan village, a dozen of ares of rice fields at road side of Denpasar - Gilimanuk were inundated. Besides, the inter-hamlet road access was also flooded as high as adult thigh. According to a resident around the location, the region had always flooded, especially during heavy and long rain. Other than roads and rice fields, a number of houses in the southern side also flooded. Made Suwitra, 50, one of the local residents, said if it rained heavily and long, the flood would reach his home. Even, since the water filled in the sewer, the water overflowed and collapsed his compound walls for two times. “Our culvert is very small, while the water overflow is much. I wonder why the government does not pay attention to it. Apparently, we have no people’s representative or a regent,” he said when met on Wednesday (Nov 27). According to him, the connecting road to coconut fiber factory owned by the family of one of the legislators in the Jembrana House also flooded. Other than his home, the home of Gusti Ketut Arnaya and a shop formerly used for the office of Mendoyo Police were also in-

undated. Even, when the building was used as police station, it also frequently flooded. Due to hit by water recently, the wall behind the shop had skewed. According to him, such condition had occurred since 2001 when the paving was done. Besides, the culvert of subak leading to the ditch was very small. Some motorists failed to pass the pathway. Only a few people were desperate to traverse on foot though having to pass through puddles as high as the thigh. Due to frequent flooding, a house formerly used for the office of PLPDK Jembrana was finally relocated. “The office is often submerged in water. It was then relocated to Negara five years ago,” added another resident, Komang Agus Sujana. A number of vehicles wishing to deliver goods to the coconut fiber factory eventually cancelled and choose another path. Meanwhile, the rice fields at Subak Jagaraga spreading across 86 ares also flooded. Fortunately, it was not in the planting season so the rice field was not planted. The puddles were clearly visible from the DenpasarGilimanuk roadside to inundate the paddy field and road. Suwitra added that some time ago the county government came down to location, but it did not fix the sewers and only provided grocery and noodle assistance. (kmb26)

Japan, South Korean military planes defy China’s new defense zone Reuters

TOKYO/SEOUL - Japanese and South Korean military aircraft flew through disputed air space over the East China Sea without informing China, officials said on Thursday, challenging a new Chinese air defense zone that has increased regional tensions and sparked concerns of an unintended clash. The move came after Tokyo’s close ally Washington defied China’s demand that airplanes flying through its unilaterally announced zone identify themselves to Chinese authorities, flying two unarmed B-52 bombers over the islands on Tuesday without informing Beijing. Tensions have ratcheted up since Beijing’s weekend announcement of the zone that includes the skies over islands at the heart of a feud between Japan and China, and its demand that planes flying in the area first notify Chinese authorities. Japan and the United States have sharply criticized the move, which some experts said was aimed not only at chipping away at Tokyo’s control of the islands, known as the Senkaku in Japan and the Diaoyu in China, but also at challenging U.S. dominance in the region. The United States does not take a position on the sovereignty of the islands but recognizes Tokyo’s administrative control and has assured Japan that the U.S.-Japan security pact covers them. The developments are expected

to dominate U.S. Vice President Joe Biden’s visit to Japan, China and South Korea next week. Also on Thursday, China rejected South Korea’s demand for the repeal of the zone, but appeared to soften its demand that commercial aircraft tell its military authorities of any plans to transit the area. Japan’s two biggest airlines have already begun defying that order. “The East China Sea Air Defense Identification zone is not aimed at normal international flights. We hope that relevant countries’ airlines can proactively cooperate, so there is more order and safety for flights,” China’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang told reporters. Japan’s Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga said naval ships and patrol planes have been operating in the East China Sea and would continue to do so. “They are carrying out surveillance activity as before in the East China Sea, including the zone,” Suga told a news conference, adding there has been no particular response from China. “We are not

going to change this (activity) out of consideration to China,” he added. BEIJING REJECTS SEOUL’S DEMAND A South Korean official also said a navy reconnaissance plane had flown over a submerged rock in the area claimed by both Beijing and Seoul, and that the flights would continue. The rock, called Ieodo in Korea and Suyan Rock in China, is controlled by South Korea, which maintains a maritime research station built on it. Asked about the South Korean flight, Chinese spokesman Qin only said that Beijing was aware of it. South Korea’s reaction to Beijing’s weekend declaration has been somewhat muted, reflecting its efforts to forge closer ties with China and a chill in relations with Japan. On Thursday, however, Seoul’s vice defense minister told a senior Chinese military official that the move to impose the new rules created military tension in the region and called on Beijing to rectify the zone “The Chinese reaction was that they will not be accepting the (South) Korean side’s demand,” Defense Ministry spokesman Kim Min-seok told reporters after talks between Vice Defense Minister Baek Seung-joo and Wang Guanzhong, the deputy chief of general staff of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army.

Italy Senate expels 3-time ex-Premier Berlusconi

Associated Press Writer

Denpasar (Bali Post)—

To that end, there should be a ban for street vendors at location disturbing the public and the officials must dare to take decisive action against them if there are street vendors violating. As revealed by an economist from Mahasaraswati University Denpasar, Wayan Sujana, the street vendors should be well managed and were not let be chaotic and arbitrary. There should be firmness from the authority of county/municipal government or municipal police. “At least, every town must have a zonation for street vendors to sell. Besides, it must also be enforced selectively as well as the administration of residence must be clear. If they indeed sell at prohibited locations, especially in places disturbing the public, the officials in this case the municipal police should dare to crack down, do not take action halfheartedly,” he affirmed.

ROME — Three-time former Premier Silvio Berlusconi was ousted from Parliament on Wednesday after two decades as a lawmaker, defiantly calling it “a day of mourning for democracy” and pledging to continue in politics. After weeks of maneuvering, appeals and even an attempt to bring down the government, Berlusconi’s delay tactics ran their course when the Senate voted to kick him out of the chamber due to a tax fraud conviction. Ever a populist, the 77-year-old billionaire chose the piazza over the Senate floor, addressing a crowd of cheering supporters outside his Roman palazzo as the vote was under way just a short walk away. “We are here on a bitter day, a day of mourning for democracy,” Berlusconi declared. He said his political enemies — including the judiciary he accuses of mounting a campaign against him — were “toasting” his demise. “They are actually euphoric,” he said. Berlusconi pledged to remain in politics — effectively launching a campaign in which he won’t be able to stand for office — noting that other political leaders are not lawmakers. He cited Beppe Grillo, the former comic and founder of the anti-

establishment 5 Star Movement, and Matteo Renzi, the Florence mayor who is a Democratic Party star widely tipped as a future premier candidate. The Senate vote bars Berlusconi from running or holding office for at least six years under a 2012 law applied to anyone sentenced to more than two years in prison. Berlusconi was sentenced to four years on a tax fraud conviction relating to the purchase of TV rights to U.S. films on his Mediaset network, charges he continues to deny. The sentence was automatically reduced to one year by a general amnesty, which he will serve either under house arrest or doing public service. In the last election, Berlusconi’s now-defunct and splintered People of Freedom Party garnered 7.3 million votes, or 21.5 percent of the vote. Berlusconi’s charisma remains compelling to many Italians despite his ongoing judicial woes. “I think for the time being he still controls a substantial number of voters,” said Roberto D’Alimonte, a political analyst at Rome’s LUISS University. “He hasn’t lost the hardcore voters.” But D’Alimonte said to maintain them he will have to “be aggressive, be his usual Berlusconi” and not appear to be weakening, even physically due to age.

An investor gestures in front of the stock price monitor at a private securities company Wednesday Nov. 27, 2013 in Shanghai, China. China’s new free-trade zone has drawn just 38 overseas firms in its first two months of operations, officials said Thursday, as foreign companies await concrete policies and deeper reforms.

China’s new FTZ attracts 38 overseas firms Agence France-Presse

SHANGHAI - China’s new free-trade zone has drawn just 38 overseas firms in its first two months of operations, officials said Thursday, as foreign companies await concrete policies and deeper reforms. Authorities set up the FTZ in the commercial city of Shanghai in late September with pledges of reform, including free convertibility of the yuan currency. But a lengthy “negative list” of what is barred in the zone and an open-ended deadline to introduce financial reforms have made foreign firms hesitant to set up there, analysts say. The 38 overseas companies newly established in the FTZ had total registered capital of $560 million, figures released on Thursday showed. More than one-third of the companies -14 -- are from Hong Kong, an autonomous region of China whose fi rms are counted as being from overseas. There also six firms from the United

States, six from Japan and four from Singapore. The number of foreign firms is a fraction of the total 1,434 companies so far registered in the FTZ. But Shanghai officials said it was too soon to make a judgement as the FTZ had only recently been launched. “I currently don’t sense that there is a feeling of disappointment,” said Ai Baojun, Shanghai vice mayor and head of the government agency managing the FTZ. “We can say there are hopes for quicker introduction of details,” he said. The FTZ is making preparations to introduce key financial reforms, including free capital flows and interest rate liberalisation, he added, but gave no timetable.

As well as the 38 to have formally set up, another 67 foreign firms had applications under consideration, officials said. “It’s a normal process. You can’t use a short-term statistic to evaluate this issue and form a grand notion,” said Dai Haibo, deputy head of the FTZ’s management committee. The tally does not take into account 12 foreign bank branches that have been approved to set up in the FTZ, including Britain’s HSBC and Citibank of the United States. Dai denied that many of the 1,396 domestic firms now in the FTZ were shell companies, lacking true business operations and set up by investors hoping to get an early foothold, as reported by Chinese media.

UNITED NATIONS - The World Bank and United Nations on Wednesday appealed for billions of dollars to provide electricity for the poorest nations but said there would be no investment in nuclear power. “We don’t do nuclear energy,” said World Bank president Jim Yong Kim as he and UN leader Ban Ki-moon outlined efforts to make sure all people have access to electricity by 2030. Kim said $600-$800 billion a year will be needed to meet the campaign target of universal access to electricity, doubling energy efficiency and doubling the share of renewable energy by 2030. In some countries, only 10% of the population has electricity. So far, the campaign has a pledge of one billion dollars from the OPEC Fund for International Development, Bank of America has raised $500 million through the world’s first ‘green bond’ and Norway has committed to spend two billion krone ($325 million) on renewable energy efforts in 2014. Kim said the World Bank is preparing energy plans for 42 countries that would be ready in June, but said any money raised would only go to new power sources. “Nuclear power from country to country is an extremely political issue,” Kim told reporters. “The World Bank Group does not engage in providing support for nuclear power. We think that this is an extremely difficult conversation that every country is continuing to have. “And because we are really not in that business our focus is on finding ways of working in hydro electric power in geothermal, in solar, in wind,” he said. “We are really focusing on increasing investment in those modalities and we don’t do nuclear energy.” Kim highlighted private financing for power expansion in Nigeria and Ivory Coast and said efforts were being made to launch a similar deal for Myanmar, where the government has launched major reform efforts. “We are working and moving very quickly to try to ensure that Myanmar experiences a clear democracy dividend,” Kim said. The World Bank chief said it had been difficult to find long term capital for poorer countries but insisted: “We will show investors that sustainable energy is an opportunity they cannot afford to miss.”

To support development of cruise ship

Culture and Tourism Agency constantly fix destinations Bali Post

SINGARAJA - The Buleleng Culture and Tourism Agency will continue to make improvement to tourist destinations as the support to the increasing number of cruise ships dropping in at Celukan Bawang Harbor. In addition to tourist attractions, the agency will also improve the performance stage in the Singaraja Playhouse and Sasana Budaya. The Head of Buleleng Culture and Tourism Agency, Jero Ketut Warkadea, said on Wednesday (Nov 27) that his party strongly supported the increasing number of cruise ships that stopped at Celukan Bawang by continuously making improvement to tourist destinations. “This year, we are planning to arrange the Air Sanih and Lovina tourist attraction,” he said. Other than arranging the Air Sanih and Lovina with the funds of approximately IDR 900 million, according to Warkadea, his party would also build representative toilet at a number of the other objects such as Ambengan and Gitgit. Next year, his party would fix the Gede Manik House of Arts and Sasana Budaya as well as the arrangement of objects at the former Buleleng Harbor. “It is carried out so that guests of cruise ships can enjoy a

nice object in Buleleng and more ships will drop in at Celukan Bawang,” he said. Previously, General Manager of PT Pelindo III of Celukan Bawang Branch, Dewa Adi Kumara Jaya, said that cruise ships holding hundreds of guests would drop in at Celukan Bawang on the upcoming December 4. With the cruise arrival, Celukan Bawang would be dropped in by three cruises this year. “Our target is that Celukan Bawang will be dropped in by four cruise ships each year. So far, two ships had transited so they will totally comprise three cruise ships early December,” he said. As planned, another cruise ship would arrive by the end of December so the target of four ships a year could be reached. “We continuously keep in touch with our consultant in Miami. As

expected, two cruise ships will arrive in this December, namely early December and at the end of December,” he said. According to Kumara Jaya, actually many guests of cruise ships from several countries had known the Celukan Bawang Harbor. They were very fond of the harbor condition and the beautiful sea of Celukan Bawang as it still had crystal clear water and white sand. By all means, a cruise ship dropped in at Buleleng for about ten hours. During that time, they visited tourist destinations in the region of Pulaki, Munduk or Singaraja Town. To that end, it was required good road access so that guests could make a quick excursion so that more destinations could be visited within ten hours. “Road access and the destinations indeed require a great attention,” he said.

DENPASAR - The Indonesian Hotel and Restaurant Association (PHRI) of Bali Chapter questioned about the allegation of fishermen stating the annexation of coastal areas by tourist accommodation, especially hotels. His party did not believe if hotel development harmed the community, especially fishermen. “Before building a hotel, certainly there are requirements to be met such as the environmental impact analysis. If indeed the existence of tourist accommodation results in an environmental impact, certainly the entrepreneur will not build hotel at the location,” said Secretary General of the PHRI Bali, Ferry Markus, in Denpasar, Wednesday (Nov 27). He suggested fishermen coalesced into the members of the Indonesian Fishermen Association (HNSI) of Bali to approach hotel accommodation considered detrimental because not all hotels established at coastal areas were detrimental. “At Sanur, for example, fishermen and hotel go hand in hand and benefit each other because many tourists staying at hotel can take advantage of their services,” he said. He admitted that his party did not dare to address the issues haphazardly. Coastal area in Bali taken advantage as hotel facility virtually occurred in all regions. “Possibly, there are one or two hotels like that, but not all. To that end, we advise them (fishermen—Ed) to approach the owner or management considered to have annexed their land, so there is a solution for the problem,” he said. According to him, PHRI Bali could not mediate to these problems because the complaint expressed by fishermen was in general without being specified in details. “We have not been able to mediate as do not know which hotels considered to have annexed the fisherman’s land whether they are located in Kuta, Nusa Dua or other coastal areas,” he said. As reported, Chairman of the HNSI Bali I Nengah Manumuditha accompanied by Chairman of the HNSI Badung Made Sudarta stated that fishermen seemed to have no right to occupy the coastal areas. Many fishermen also fret because the development was feared to expel their existence. “Fishermen in Bali have not had a legal certainty to protect their presence in the coastal region. It’s only Badung which already has owned a Regional Bylaw No.18/1994 on the charges of base,” he said. The Regional Bylaw, he revealed, had set forth the radius of coastal territories becoming the right of fishermen to conduct their economic activities. The radius set forth was 200 meters for the activities of fishermen. “However, at the moment a lot of lands supposed to become the location of fishermen’s activity have been pilfered by hotel. Even, the hotel impressed to have dismissed fishermen from their location so that many fishermen have been displaced,” he said. Manumuditha stated the needs for legal instrument in the form of Regional Bylaw to protect the rights of fishermen throughout Bali. On the other hand, though the existing legal instrument had been made, fishermen would still have difficulty in maintaining their rights. He mentioned as long as the development at coastal territories considered capable of improving the economic standard, fishermen would accept it. “We in the HNSI Bali are fighting for the rights of fishermen by urging the government to give recognition to traditional institution of fishermen,” he concluded.

A Palestinian presidential guard uses his binoculars next to a picture of late leader Yasser Arafat while securing a roof at the Palestinian Authority headquarters, ahead of the visit of French President Francois Hollande to the West Bank city of Ramallah, Monday, Nov. 18, 2013.

Israel’s Peres rejects Arafat poisoning theory Agence France Presse

Mexico City - Israeli President Shimon Peres rejected theories that Yasser Arafat was poisoned, telling a Mexican newspaper Tuesday that any assassin would have found it easier to shoot the Palestinian leader. Swiss scientists have found that lab test results “moderately” backed the idea that Arafat died of polonium poisoning in 2004. “I don’t believe it,” Peres told Excelsior newspaper in an interview ahead of a visit to Mexico. “If someone had wanted to get rid of Arafat, it would have been easier to do it with a bullet.” Peres shared the 1994 Nobel Peace Prize with Arafat and Israeli prime minister Yitzhak Rabin after signing the Oslo peace accords. Rabin was

assassinated by a Jewish right-wing extremist in 1995. Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas called last week for an international inquiry to decide who was responsible for Arafat’s death. Peres arrived in Mexico on Tuesday, leading an 80-strong Israeli business delegation. He will hold talks with President Enrique Pena Nieto on Wednesday before meeting with the world’s second richest man, telecommunications tycoon Carlos Slim.

On Thursday, Peres will inaugurate the Mexico-Israel Economic Forum and deliver a speech to the Senate. He heads to the western city of Guadalajara on Friday to attend an international book fair where Israel is the guest of honor. He leaves Mexico on Sunday. Israel’s invitation to the biggest book fair in the Spanish-speaking world was criticized by a group of leftist intellectuals, who demanded that Palestinians be invited to the next event.

INGLEWOOD, Calif. — A man opened fire on two police officers outside a Los Angeles-area home, hitting and wounding one of them before holding his girlfriend and her 14-year-old daughter hostage in a nearly nine-hour standoff until he peacefully surrendered, police said. The officer was shot in his bulletproof vest, while the second officer suffered minor injuries when she fell down during the melee. The two hostages and the gunman were not hurt, police said. Reports of a family disturbance sent the two officers to the home around 12:30 p.m., police Capt. James D. Madia said. The man in the home shot at the arriving officers “before they could even get to the front door,” Madia said. Officers returned fire, and a video aired on KABC-TV captured more than a dozen shots being fired. Officers pulled their wounded colleague out of the line of fire, Lt. Oscar Mejia said. The Inglewood officer’s protective vest stopped the bullet and he was taken to a hospital in good condition but “in a lot of pain,” Madia said. The officer was later transferred to another hospital. The female officer was treated at a hospital for minor injuries and released, police said. Esther Frazier, who lives across the street from the standoff, said she was baking a cake for Thanksgiving when she heard a commotion and walked outside to see police officers banging on the door of the home. She went back inside to turn off her oven when gunfire erupted. “There were so many gunshots, oh my God, it was like you were in a war zone,” she told the Los Angeles Times. “A shot came through the screen on my door. “I am scared to death, I’m on my floor in the den,” she said by telephone.

I’m no saint or icon, says Myanmar’s Suu Kyi Agence France Presse

Sydney - Myanmar opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi on Thursday insisted she was no saint and no icon, saying she disliked the titles and had always seen herself as an honest politician. The celebrated activist and democracy champion endured years of house arrest at the hands of Myanmar’s military regime and has been feted since her release, but she insisted she was just an ordinary person. “I always thought that I was a politician, I look upon myself as a politician, not as an icon,” she told an audience in Sydney during her first visit to Australia. “I always object to the word icon, because it’s very static, it stands there, sits there, hangs on the wall, and I happen to work very, very hard.” The Nobel Peace Prize winner said she disliked being called a saint even more than an icon. “Let me assure you I am no saint of any kind; this I find very troubling, because politicians are politicians, but I do believe there is such a thing as an honest politician and I aspire to that,” she said. The Oxford-trained daughter of the country’s independence hero was released from house arrest in 2010 and said her dream for the country under the reformist government of President Thein Sein was “unity”. During her trip to Australia, Suu Kyi will also visit Melbourne and Canberra, meeting Prime Minister Tony Abbott and Foreign Minister Julie Bishop.

Indonesia summons Singaporean and South Korean Ambassadors Antara

JAKARTA - The Foreign Affairs Ministry has summoned the Singaporean and South Korean ambassadors to Indonesia in response to reports of their alleged involvement in wiretapping activities by Australia and the United States. “We have already demanded an explanation from the Singaporean and South Korean ambassadors about their involvement in using fibre optic cables for wiretapping activities conducted by Australia and the United States,” Foreign Affairs Minister Marty Natalegawa said here on Thursday. During the meeting, the Singaporean ambassador to Indonesia asked for a clarification since he considered Singapore’s involvement in the wiretapping to be an unfounded accusation, Marty stated. “South Korea’s ambassador, however, did not deny the reports,” he added. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs would take steps based on the United Nations’ resolution on anti-wiretapping and rights to privacy, he pointed out. Regarding Indonesia’s bilateral relationship

with Australia, Marty remarked that the government has stopped three cooperation programs, including information and intelligence data exchange and joint military exercises, and is reviewing the partnership between the two countries. According to the documents leaked by former US National Security Agency employee Edward Snowden and quoted by Australian media, Singapore’s military intelligence helped American, British and Australian intelligence agencies collect data through primary undersea cable communication networks that connect more than 30 countries, including China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, Vietnam, Britain and France. The media reports also mentioned the role of the South Korean intelligence agency in the wiretapping of communication networks that run through Hong Kong, China and Taiwan.

Paul Millsap had 16 points for Atlanta. Dallas’ Dirk Nowitzki scored 22 points to offset a rough night for playmaking partner Monta Ellis, helping the Mavericks hang on for a 103-99 win over Golden State.

McLaren: no excuses if team is not back in F1 2014 title fight

McLaren boss Martin Whitmarsh says there will be no excuses if his team is not back at the front in Formula 1 next year. As he welcomed the end of a campaign where McLaren failed to take a podium finish for the first time since 1980, Whitmarsh made it clear that the team had everything

in place to stage a recovery next year. “It has been a long season and it seemed longer than I have ever known a season,” he said. “Now I am excited about the future and that is a nice thing. “With the big rule change coming for 2014, it really is a clean sheet here. “There are no

excuses for next year.” The biggest uncertainty that teams face under the new regulations, however, is how competitive the engines of Mercedes, Renault and Ferrari will be. Paddock speculation suggests Mercedes will have the advantage in terms of power and weight, but

Whitmarsh knows that the only proof of that will come during testing next year. “Will we have a competitive power train? I don’t know,” he said. “There are lots of people who appear to be very knowledgeable down the pit lane, and I don’t know what data they have got to

know that. “But having said that, what I know in terms of level of resource and type of organisation, I think they will have done a competent job and have applied the level of resources you would want on it. “I suspect we will be competitive.” Whitmarsh said there were already encouraging signs about a performance lift from his team at the end of this year, even though it still did not achieve enough. “I think the last four or five races we have flattered to deceive as it were,” he said. “I have sensed we did make progress. “We were racing Ferrari and Lotus and Mercedes, but we didn’t quite nail it. “You can see we had similar pace, which is ironic given that the car hasn’t touched the wind tunnel for about four months and we were not doing anything [to improve it].”

Real, Man United, PSG advance in Champions League

TURIN - Arturo Vidal walked a yellow card tightrope against Copenhagen, knowing a booking would rule him out of their last Champions League group game, but the Juventus midfielder stayed on the straight and narrow, scoring a hat-trick to put them within a point of the last 16. Juve’s 3-1 victory on Wednesday means they need only a draw at Galatasaray on Dec. 10 to progress, a stunning turnaround after their worst ever start to a Champions League group campaign saw them take three points from four games. Vidal, who’s place in the team had been in doubt due

LONDON — Nine-time winner Real Madrid qualified for the Champions League’s last 16 alongside Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday, while Juventus kept alive its chances of reaching the knockout stages. midfielder Simon Rolfes said. “The second goal broke down our morale a bit although we actually had a decent start to the game. After the third goal, the game was over.” Antonio Valencia put United ahead in the 22nd minute, Emir Spahic’s own goal in the 30th doubled United’s lead and Jonny Evans got the third in the 65th. Chris Smalling steered home the fourth in the 77th and Nani completed the rout in the 88th. United has 11 points before its final match against second-place Shakhtar Donetsk, which beat Real Sociedad 4-0 to move onto eight points. Leverkusen has seven points while Real Sociedad has one point and is eliminated. It was a good evening for the Manchester clubs as Alvaro Negredo and Edin Dzeko scored in the final 12 minutes to earn City a 4-2 victory over Plzen, keeping alive the English team’s slim hopes of finishing top of Group D. In Moscow, Arjen Roben fired Bayern in front midway through the first-half before Mario Gotze made it 2-0 with a solo effort early in the second half. Keisuke Honda was a constant threat after the interval and converted a penalty in the 61st minute as CSKA pulled one back. But Thomas Muller also scored from the spot to restore a two-goal lead for Bayern four minutes later. Vidal broke the deadlock for Juventus in the 28th minute from the penalty spot after Lars Jacobsen had handled in the area. Former Juventus defender Olof Mellberg swiftly went from hero to villain for Copenhagen when he equalized in the 56th before giving away a penalty four minutes later by bringing down Fernando Llorente. Vidal again converted and headed home two minutes later to complete his hat trick. At the Parc des Princes, Edinson Cavani scored in the final minute as 10-man PSG beat Olympiakos 2-1 to reach the knockout stages of the Champions League as group winners. With PSG a man down for most of the second half after midfielder Marco Verratti’s sending off, Olympiakos looked to have done enough to seal a valuable draw when center half Kostas Manolas equalized from close range in the 80th minute following a corner. But Cavani ran onto substitute Adrien Rabiot’s pass and finished with a powerful shot that gave goalkeeper Roberto Jimenez no chance. Verratti’s sending off in the 46th handed the visitors a way back into a contest that looked easily within PSG’s reach when Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored in the seventh minute on his 100th appearance in the competition.

Vidal vital for Juve’s Champions League hopes

Associated Press Writer

Madrid, which o n l y needed a draw at home to Galatasaray to clinch top spot in Group B, won 4-1 with goals from Gareth Bale, Alvaro Arbeloa, Angel Di Maria and Isco. Juventus claimed its first win of the campaign and moved into second place in the same group with a 3-1 victory over Copenhagen as Arturo Vidal scored a hat-trick. The Bianconeri kept their destiny in their own hands and a draw away to Galatasaray on the final matchday will be enough for the Italian champions to advance. United qualified from Group A with an emphatic 5-0 win at Bayer Leverkusen and PSG secured top spot in Group C with a 2-1 win against Olympiakos. “To come to Germany and get a such a good result — Leverkusen are second in the Bundesliga behind Bayern Munich — it gives an idea of where our performance and result stood,” United coach David Moyes said. On a night when all the big clubs won, defending champion Bayern Munich set a new Champions League record by winning its 10th successive game in the competition with a 3-1 win at CSKA Moscow. It equaled Barcelona’s 2002-03 record with nine in a row three weeks ago. Bayern, the only team left in the tournament with a 100 percent record, overcame freezing temperatures to come out on top of an entertaining match. Bayern leads Group D with 15 points, three more than Manchester City after the Blues won 4-2 against last-place Viktoria Plzen. Bayern and City, who had already qualified, will be vying for the group supremacy in two weeks in Germany. Despite Cristiano Ronaldo’s absence and Sergio Ramos’s sending off after just 26 minutes, Madrid played superbly in the second half, scoring three goals to add to Bale’s opener. Ramos was sent off for a foul on Umut Bulut, but Madrid looked unfazed as Bale opened the scoring with an exquisite free kick from 30 meters in the 37th minute. Bulut equalized right away but the Turkish club wilted in the second half at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium as Madrid joined fellow Spanish teams Barcelona and Atletico Madrid in the round of 16. Chelsea also advanced on Tuesday night despite losing 1-0 against Basel. “The second half was very good. The coach made all the right changes. Many people say that we depend on players like Xabi Alonso or Cristiano Ronaldo but we showed we can win because of the way others play,” said Arbeloa. United played its most accomplished match of the season against a poor Leverkusen team to claim its biggest away success since the Champions League format was introduced in 1992-93. Playing without star striker Robin Van Persie and defender Nemanja Vidic, United had been expected to struggle against the German team. Instead, they cruised. “That was a really tough evening for us,” Leverkusen

to a previous yellow card, kept his cool to convert two penalties and head a deft third as Juve climbed to second in Group B and eliminated Copenhagen. “I’m taking the ball back home,” said Vidal, who left the field to a rapturous ovation. “It’ll be a gift for my son so I can show him when I played the game. “I was a bit worried about being booked in view of the next match against Galatasaray, which is a big game for us,” admitted Vidal afterwards. After opening the scoring with a first-half penalty he was ice cool again from the spot on the hour to put his side back in the lead after they gave away a cheap equaliser. His superb header sealed the three points. The 26-year-old took his tally to five goals in the group campaign and his eye for goal has made him a huge favourite with the home fans since signing from Bayer Leverkusen in 2011. However, his ability to slot in all over the field has been equally important to the Italian champions. Vidal has played in just about every position on the pitch, and at the weekend played in defence as an injury-hit Juve won 2-0 at Livorno. “I’ve never played in goal before but if the manager wants me to play in goal I’ll give it a go!” he joked. Coach Antonio Conte may have had some trepidation about starting Vidal on Wednesday, knowing that qualification for the last 16 would probably come down to the last game against Galatasaray, but in the end he decided he needed his cut and thrust to break down a resilient Copenhagen side. “We’re not going to Istanbul to draw, we are going there to win,” said Conte.

MANCHESTER, England — Manchester City’s prolific strike force bailed out its vulnerable defense in a 4-2 win over Viktoria Plzen on Wednesday that kept alive the English team’s hopes of topping Group D in the Champions League. Fielding a depleted team having already qualified for the last 16, City was twice pegged back by the plucky Czech champions at Etihad Stadium before goals by Alvaro Negredo and Edin Dzeko in the final 12 minutes sealed victory. “We can attack and we can score four goals without giving (away) so many chances that we did today,” City manager Manuel Pellegrini said. “One of the most important things to be an attacking team is to know how to defend well. Today we did very, very bad.” England goalkeeper Joe Hart might have been expecting a comfortable night on his return to City’s first team after being dropped for the last five matches, but he was kept busy throughout on an anxious night for the home side despite the final scoreline. Sergio Aguero’s 33rd-minute penalty — his 12th goal in his last nine games — put City ahead but Tomas Horava’s brilliant strike in the 43rd deservedly put Plzen level at halftime. Samir Nasri regained the lead for City with a 65thminute volley, only for Hart to be exposed once again as Stanislav Tecl slotted home four minutes later. “I think Joe Hart played very well. I didn’t expect that he would have to work so much during the game,” said Pellegrini, who wouldn’t state whether Hart had done enough to retain the jersey for Sunday’s Premier League match against Swansea. The result kept City three points behind Bayern Munich ahead of their meeting in Germany in two weeks. Having already lost 3-1 at home to the reigning champions, Pellegrini’s men will need to win 3-0 or by a two-goal margin if they score four or more times to finish first and probably secure an easier last16 match.

Spurs, Timberwolves have winning streaks ended

Associated Press Writer

OKLAHOMA CITY — San Antonio and Portland both had 11game winning streaks ended on Wednesday ahead of a clash between the NBA Western Conference pacesetters. Kevin Durant had 24 points and 13 rebounds to lead Oklahoma City to a 94-88 win over San Antonio while Portland’s streak came to an end with a 120-106 defeat at Phoenix. Among other games, Indiana won its fifth straight by downing Charlotte, Houston cruised past Atlanta and Dirk Nowitzki helped Dallas hang on to defeat Golden State. Serge Ibaka had 17 points and 11 rebounds for Oklahoma City, which is 7-0 at home, the franchise’s best home start in nine years when it was based in Seattle. The Thunder have won five straight overall, taking control of a tight game with an 8-0 run in the third quarter and withstood a run by the Spurs midway through the fourth quarter. Tony Parker had 16 points and seven assists for San Antonio, whose 13-1 start had matched the best

start in franchise history but they were not able to set a new mark. Phoenix’s Goran Dragic scored 31 points as the Suns downed Portland 120-106, using an up-tempo style to recover from a poor start. Markieff Morris scored 19 for the Suns, who wiped out a 16-point second-quarter deficit. LaMarcus Aldridge had 24 points for the Blazers, who had also won six straight on the road. Indiana’s C.J. Watson made five 3-pointers in the fourth quarter and finished with 18 points to send the Pacers to a 99-74 win over Charlotte for their fifth straight victory. Lance Stephenson had 15 points

and 10 rebounds for the Pacers, who have the NBA’s best defense this season and limited the Bobcats to 31 percent shooting. Al Jefferson had 16 points and nine rebounds for Charlotte, which has lost six of its past seven home games. Houston’s Francisco Garcia scored a season-high 21 points as the Rockets beat Atlanta 113-84 and notched a third-straight win. Aaron Brooks also had 21 for Houston, which never trailed and again used a balanced scoring attack with James Harden out for the third straight game with a foot injury. Paul Millsap had 16 points for Atlanta. Dallas’ Dirk Nowitzki scored 22 points to offset a rough night for playmaking partner Monta Ellis, helping the Mavericks hang on for a 103-99 win over Golden State. Nowitzki was 11 of 19 from the field and added three assists and two steals. Ellis finished with a seasonlow four points on 2-of-16 shooting, but he had 10 assists.

A Palestinian presidential guard uses his binoculars next to a picture of late leader Yasser Arafat while securing a roof at the Palestinian Authority headquarters, ahead of the visit of French President Francois Hollande to the West Bank city of Ramallah, Monday, Nov. 18, 2013.

Israel’s Peres rejects Arafat poisoning theory Agence France Presse

Mexico City - Israeli President Shimon Peres rejected theories that Yasser Arafat was poisoned, telling a Mexican newspaper Tuesday that any assassin would have found it easier to shoot the Palestinian leader. Swiss scientists have found that lab test results “moderately” backed the idea that Arafat died of polonium poisoning in 2004. “I don’t believe it,” Peres told Excelsior newspaper in an interview ahead of a visit to Mexico. “If someone had wanted to get rid of Arafat, it would have been easier to do it with a bullet.” Peres shared the 1994 Nobel Peace Prize with Arafat and Israeli prime minister Yitzhak Rabin after signing the Oslo peace accords. Rabin was

assassinated by a Jewish right-wing extremist in 1995. Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas called last week for an international inquiry to decide who was responsible for Arafat’s death. Peres arrived in Mexico on Tuesday, leading an 80-strong Israeli business delegation. He will hold talks with President Enrique Pena Nieto on Wednesday before meeting with the world’s second richest man, telecommunications tycoon Carlos Slim.

On Thursday, Peres will inaugurate the Mexico-Israel Economic Forum and deliver a speech to the Senate. He heads to the western city of Guadalajara on Friday to attend an international book fair where Israel is the guest of honor. He leaves Mexico on Sunday. Israel’s invitation to the biggest book fair in the Spanish-speaking world was criticized by a group of leftist intellectuals, who demanded that Palestinians be invited to the next event.

INGLEWOOD, Calif. — A man opened fire on two police officers outside a Los Angeles-area home, hitting and wounding one of them before holding his girlfriend and her 14-year-old daughter hostage in a nearly nine-hour standoff until he peacefully surrendered, police said. The officer was shot in his bulletproof vest, while the second officer suffered minor injuries when she fell down during the melee. The two hostages and the gunman were not hurt, police said. Reports of a family disturbance sent the two officers to the home around 12:30 p.m., police Capt. James D. Madia said. The man in the home shot at the arriving officers “before they could even get to the front door,” Madia said. Officers returned fire, and a video aired on KABC-TV captured more than a dozen shots being fired. Officers pulled their wounded colleague out of the line of fire, Lt. Oscar Mejia said. The Inglewood officer’s protective vest stopped the bullet and he was taken to a hospital in good condition but “in a lot of pain,” Madia said. The officer was later transferred to another hospital. The female officer was treated at a hospital for minor injuries and released, police said. Esther Frazier, who lives across the street from the standoff, said she was baking a cake for Thanksgiving when she heard a commotion and walked outside to see police officers banging on the door of the home. She went back inside to turn off her oven when gunfire erupted. “There were so many gunshots, oh my God, it was like you were in a war zone,” she told the Los Angeles Times. “A shot came through the screen on my door. “I am scared to death, I’m on my floor in the den,” she said by telephone.

The celebrated activist and democracy champion endured years of house arrest at the hands of Myanmar’s military regime and has been feted since her release, but she insisted she was just an ordinary person. “I always thought that I was a politician, I look upon myself as a politician, not as an icon,” she told an audience in Sydney during her first visit to Australia. “I always object to the word icon, because it’s very static, it stands there, sits there, hangs on the wall, and I happen to work very, very hard.” The Nobel Peace Prize winner said she disliked being called a saint even more than an icon. “Let me assure you I am no saint of any kind; this I find very troubling, because politicians are politicians, but I do believe there is such a thing as an honest politician and I aspire to that,” she said. The Oxford-trained daughter of the country’s independence hero was released from house arrest in 2010 and said her dream for the country under the reformist government of President Thein Sein was “unity”. During her trip to Australia, Suu Kyi will also visit Melbourne and Canberra, meeting Prime Minister Tony Abbott and Foreign Minister Julie Bishop.

Indonesia summons Singaporean and South Korean Ambassadors Antara

JAKARTA - The Foreign Affairs Ministry has summoned the Singaporean and South Korean ambassadors to Indonesia in response to reports of their alleged involvement in wiretapping activities by Australia and the United States. “We have already demanded an explanation from the Singaporean and South Korean ambassadors about their involvement in using fibre optic cables for wiretapping activities conducted by Australia and the United States,” Foreign Affairs Minister Marty Natalegawa said here on Thursday. During the meeting, the Singaporean ambassador to Indonesia asked for a clarification since he considered Singapore’s involvement in the wiretapping to be an unfounded accusation, Marty stated. “South Korea’s ambassador, however, did not deny the reports,” he added. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs would take steps based on the United Nations’ resolution on anti-wiretapping and rights to privacy, he pointed out. Regarding Indonesia’s bilateral relationship

with Australia, Marty remarked that the government has stopped three cooperation programs, including information and intelligence data exchange and joint military exercises, and is reviewing the partnership between the two countries. According to the documents leaked by former US National Security Agency employee Edward Snowden and quoted by Australian media, Singapore’s military intelligence helped American, British and Australian intelligence agencies collect data through primary undersea cable communication networks that connect more than 30 countries, including China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, Vietnam, Britain and France. The media reports also mentioned the role of the South Korean intelligence agency in the wiretapping of communication networks that run through Hong Kong, China and Taiwan.

China’s new FTZ attracts 38 overseas firms Agence France-Presse

SHANGHAI - China’s new free-trade zone has drawn just 38 overseas firms in its first two months of operations, officials said Thursday, as foreign companies await concrete policies and deeper reforms. Authorities set up the FTZ in the commercial city of Shanghai in late September with pledges of reform, including free convertibility of the yuan currency. But a lengthy “negative list” of what is barred in the zone and an open-ended deadline to introduce financial reforms have made foreign firms hesitant to set up there, analysts say. The 38 overseas companies newly established in the FTZ had total registered capital of $560 million, figures released on Thursday showed. More than one-third of the companies -14 -- are from Hong Kong, an autonomous region of China whose fi rms are counted as being from overseas. There also six firms from the United

States, six from Japan and four from Singapore. The number of foreign firms is a fraction of the total 1,434 companies so far registered in the FTZ. But Shanghai officials said it was too soon to make a judgement as the FTZ had only recently been launched. “I currently don’t sense that there is a feeling of disappointment,” said Ai Baojun, Shanghai vice mayor and head of the government agency managing the FTZ. “We can say there are hopes for quicker introduction of details,” he said. The FTZ is making preparations to introduce key financial reforms, including free capital flows and interest rate liberalisation, he added, but gave no timetable.

As well as the 38 to have formally set up, another 67 foreign firms had applications under consideration, officials said. “It’s a normal process. You can’t use a short-term statistic to evaluate this issue and form a grand notion,” said Dai Haibo, deputy head of the FTZ’s management committee. The tally does not take into account 12 foreign bank branches that have been approved to set up in the FTZ, including Britain’s HSBC and Citibank of the United States. Dai denied that many of the 1,396 domestic firms now in the FTZ were shell companies, lacking true business operations and set up by investors hoping to get an early foothold, as reported by Chinese media.

UNITED NATIONS - The World Bank and United Nations on Wednesday appealed for billions of dollars to provide electricity for the poorest nations but said there would be no investment in nuclear power. “We don’t do nuclear energy,” said World Bank president Jim Yong Kim as he and UN leader Ban Ki-moon outlined efforts to make sure all people have access to electricity by 2030. Kim said $600-$800 billion a year will be needed to meet the campaign target of universal access to electricity, doubling energy efficiency and doubling the share of renewable energy by 2030. In some countries, only 10% of the population has electricity. So far, the campaign has a pledge of one billion dollars from the OPEC Fund for International Development, Bank of America has raised $500 million through the world’s first ‘green bond’ and Norway has committed to spend two billion krone ($325 million) on renewable energy efforts in 2014. Kim said the World Bank is preparing energy plans for 42 countries that would be ready in June, but said any money raised would only go to new power sources. “Nuclear power from country to country is an extremely political issue,” Kim told reporters. “The World Bank Group does not engage in providing support for nuclear power. We think that this is an extremely difficult conversation that every country is continuing to have. “And because we are really not in that business our focus is on finding ways of working in hydro electric power in geothermal, in solar, in wind,” he said. “We are really focusing on increasing investment in those modalities and we don’t do nuclear energy.” Kim highlighted private financing for power expansion in Nigeria and Ivory Coast and said efforts were being made to launch a similar deal for Myanmar, where the government has launched major reform efforts. “We are working and moving very quickly to try to ensure that Myanmar experiences a clear democracy dividend,” Kim said. The World Bank chief said it had been difficult to find long term capital for poorer countries but insisted: “We will show investors that sustainable energy is an opportunity they cannot afford to miss.”

To support development of cruise ship

Culture and Tourism Agency constantly fix destinations Bali Post

SINGARAJA - The Buleleng Culture and Tourism Agency will continue to make improvement to tourist destinations as the support to the increasing number of cruise ships dropping in at Celukan Bawang Harbor. In addition to tourist attractions, the agency will also improve the performance stage in the Singaraja Playhouse and Sasana Budaya. The Head of Buleleng Culture and Tourism Agency, Jero Ketut Warkadea, said on Wednesday (Nov 27) that his party strongly supported the increasing number of cruise ships that stopped at Celukan Bawang by continuously making improvement to tourist destinations. “This year, we are planning to arrange the Air Sanih and Lovina tourist attraction,” he said. Other than arranging the Air Sanih and Lovina with the funds of approximately IDR 900 million, according to Warkadea, his party would also build representative toilet at a number of the other objects such as Ambengan and Gitgit. Next year, his party would fix the Gede Manik House of Arts and Sasana Budaya as well as the arrangement of objects at the former Buleleng Harbor. “It is carried out so that guests of cruise ships can enjoy a

nice object in Buleleng and more ships will drop in at Celukan Bawang,” he said. Previously, General Manager of PT Pelindo III of Celukan Bawang Branch, Dewa Adi Kumara Jaya, said that cruise ships holding hundreds of guests would drop in at Celukan Bawang on the upcoming December 4. With the cruise arrival, Celukan Bawang would be dropped in by three cruises this year. “Our target is that Celukan Bawang will be dropped in by four cruise ships each year. So far, two ships had transited so they will totally comprise three cruise ships early December,” he said. As planned, another cruise ship would arrive by the end of December so the target of four ships a year could be reached. “We continuously keep in touch with our consultant in Miami. As

expected, two cruise ships will arrive in this December, namely early December and at the end of December,” he said. According to Kumara Jaya, actually many guests of cruise ships from several countries had known the Celukan Bawang Harbor. They were very fond of the harbor condition and the beautiful sea of Celukan Bawang as it still had crystal clear water and white sand. By all means, a cruise ship dropped in at Buleleng for about ten hours. During that time, they visited tourist destinations in the region of Pulaki, Munduk or Singaraja Town. To that end, it was required good road access so that guests could make a quick excursion so that more destinations could be visited within ten hours. “Road access and the destinations indeed require a great attention,” he said.

DENPASAR - The Indonesian Hotel and Restaurant Association (PHRI) of Bali Chapter questioned about the allegation of fishermen stating the annexation of coastal areas by tourist accommodation, especially hotels. His party did not believe if hotel development harmed the community, especially fishermen. “Before building a hotel, certainly there are requirements to be met such as the environmental impact analysis. If indeed the existence of tourist accommodation results in an environmental impact, certainly the entrepreneur will not build hotel at the location,” said Secretary General of the PHRI Bali, Ferry Markus, in Denpasar, Wednesday (Nov 27). He suggested fishermen coalesced into the members of the Indonesian Fishermen Association (HNSI) of Bali to approach hotel accommodation considered detrimental because not all hotels established at coastal areas were detrimental. “At Sanur, for example, fishermen and hotel go hand in hand and benefit each other because many tourists staying at hotel can take advantage of their services,” he said. He admitted that his party did not dare to address the issues haphazardly. Coastal area in Bali taken advantage as hotel facility virtually occurred in all regions. “Possibly, there are one or two hotels like that, but not all. To that end, we advise them (fishermen—Ed) to approach the owner or management considered to have annexed their land, so there is a solution for the problem,” he said. According to him, PHRI Bali could not mediate to these problems because the complaint expressed by fishermen was in general without being specified in details. “We have not been able to mediate as do not know which hotels considered to have annexed the fisherman’s land whether they are located in Kuta, Nusa Dua or other coastal areas,” he said. As reported, Chairman of the HNSI Bali I Nengah Manumuditha accompanied by Chairman of the HNSI Badung Made Sudarta stated that fishermen seemed to have no right to occupy the coastal areas. Many fishermen also fret because the development was feared to expel their existence. “Fishermen in Bali have not had a legal certainty to protect their presence in the coastal region. It’s only Badung which already has owned a Regional Bylaw No.18/1994 on the charges of base,” he said. The Regional Bylaw, he revealed, had set forth the radius of coastal territories becoming the right of fishermen to conduct their economic activities. The radius set forth was 200 meters for the activities of fishermen. “However, at the moment a lot of lands supposed to become the location of fishermen’s activity have been pilfered by hotel. Even, the hotel impressed to have dismissed fishermen from their location so that many fishermen have been displaced,” he said. Manumuditha stated the needs for legal instrument in the form of Regional Bylaw to protect the rights of fishermen throughout Bali. On the other hand, though the existing legal instrument had been made, fishermen would still have difficulty in maintaining their rights. He mentioned as long as the development at coastal territories considered capable of improving the economic standard, fishermen would accept it. “We in the HNSI Bali are fighting for the rights of fishermen by urging the government to give recognition to traditional institution of fishermen,” he concluded.

Do not let be chaotic, give space to street vendors

RLD

The existence of street vendors (PKL) often becomes a bad precedent for the urban area arrangement. By all means, the activities of street vendors occupy road body and sidewalks, so as not to leave enough space for pedestrians. Such condition draws public concern because they can kindle traffic congestion and disrupt pedestrian movement. Besides, they also create dirty and unhealthy environment. It does not include the problem in terms of population administrative compliance. He acknowledged, for some groups of people, street vendors actually became a solution because they provided a cheaper price. For low-income communities, street vendors were the choice. This made the control of street vendors in strategic locations controversial in terms of social aspect. Actually, they were tenacious worker struggling to support their family every day. The enforcement efforts undertaken all this time often ended with a clash and got physical resistance from the street vendors. Together with other components of society, the street vendors sometimes made a demonstration. Actually, if their existence was well arranged and styled consistently, the existence of street vendors would even add the exoticism of a location in the urban area. “There should be a

Inter-hamlet road and rice field at Tembles hit by flood Negara (Bali Post)—

Heavy rain flushing the area of Mendoyo, Tuesday night (Nov 26) caused a number of places to flood. As happened at Tembles hamlet, Penyaringan village, a dozen of ares of rice fields at road side of Denpasar - Gilimanuk were inundated. Besides, the inter-hamlet road access was also flooded as high as adult thigh. According to a resident around the location, the region had always flooded, especially during heavy and long rain. Other than roads and rice fields, a number of houses in the southern side also flooded. Made Suwitra, 50, one of the local residents, said if it rained heavily and long, the flood would reach his home. Even, since the water filled in the sewer, the water overflowed and collapsed his compound walls for two times. “Our culvert is very small, while the water overflow is much. I wonder why the government does not pay attention to it. Apparently, we have no people’s representative or a regent,” he said when met on Wednesday (Nov 27). According to him, the connecting road to coconut fiber factory owned by the family of one of the legislators in the Jembrana House also flooded. Other than his home, the home of Gusti Ketut Arnaya and a shop formerly used for the office of Mendoyo Police were also in-

undated. Even, when the building was used as police station, it also frequently flooded. Due to hit by water recently, the wall behind the shop had skewed. According to him, such condition had occurred since 2001 when the paving was done. Besides, the culvert of subak leading to the ditch was very small. Some motorists failed to pass the pathway. Only a few people were desperate to traverse on foot though having to pass through puddles as high as the thigh. Due to frequent flooding, a house formerly used for the office of PLPDK Jembrana was finally relocated. “The office is often submerged in water. It was then relocated to Negara five years ago,” added another resident, Komang Agus Sujana. A number of vehicles wishing to deliver goods to the coconut fiber factory eventually cancelled and choose another path. Meanwhile, the rice fields at Subak Jagaraga spreading across 86 ares also flooded. Fortunately, it was not in the planting season so the rice field was not planted. The puddles were clearly visible from the DenpasarGilimanuk roadside to inundate the paddy field and road. Suwitra added that some time ago the county government came down to location, but it did not fix the sewers and only provided grocery and noodle assistance. (kmb26)

Japan, South Korean military planes defy China’s new defense zone Reuters

TOKYO/SEOUL - Japanese and South Korean military aircraft flew through disputed air space over the East China Sea without informing China, officials said on Thursday, challenging a new Chinese air defense zone that has increased regional tensions and sparked concerns of an unintended clash. The move came after Tokyo’s close ally Washington defied China’s demand that airplanes flying through its unilaterally announced zone identify themselves to Chinese authorities, flying two unarmed B-52 bombers over the islands on Tuesday without informing Beijing. Tensions have ratcheted up since Beijing’s weekend announcement of the zone that includes the skies over islands at the heart of a feud between Japan and China, and its demand that planes flying in the area first notify Chinese authorities. Japan and the United States have sharply criticized the move, which some experts said was aimed not only at chipping away at Tokyo’s control of the islands, known as the Senkaku in Japan and the Diaoyu in China, but also at challenging U.S. dominance in the region. The United States does not take a position on the sovereignty of the islands but recognizes Tokyo’s administrative control and has assured Japan that the U.S.-Japan security pact covers them. The developments are expected

to dominate U.S. Vice President Joe Biden’s visit to Japan, China and South Korea next week. Also on Thursday, China rejected South Korea’s demand for the repeal of the zone, but appeared to soften its demand that commercial aircraft tell its military authorities of any plans to transit the area. Japan’s two biggest airlines have already begun defying that order. “The East China Sea Air Defense Identification zone is not aimed at normal international flights. We hope that relevant countries’ airlines can proactively cooperate, so there is more order and safety for flights,” China’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang told reporters. Japan’s Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga said naval ships and patrol planes have been operating in the East China Sea and would continue to do so. “They are carrying out surveillance activity as before in the East China Sea, including the zone,” Suga told a news conference, adding there has been no particular response from China. “We are not

going to change this (activity) out of consideration to China,” he added. BEIJING REJECTS SEOUL’S DEMAND A South Korean official also said a navy reconnaissance plane had flown over a submerged rock in the area claimed by both Beijing and Seoul, and that the flights would continue. The rock, called Ieodo in Korea and Suyan Rock in China, is controlled by South Korea, which maintains a maritime research station built on it. Asked about the South Korean flight, Chinese spokesman Qin only said that Beijing was aware of it. South Korea’s reaction to Beijing’s weekend declaration has been somewhat muted, reflecting its efforts to forge closer ties with China and a chill in relations with Japan. On Thursday, however, Seoul’s vice defense minister told a senior Chinese military official that the move to impose the new rules created military tension in the region and called on Beijing to rectify the zone “The Chinese reaction was that they will not be accepting the (South) Korean side’s demand,” Defense Ministry spokesman Kim Min-seok told reporters after talks between Vice Defense Minister Baek Seung-joo and Wang Guanzhong, the deputy chief of general staff of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army.

Italy Senate expels 3-time ex-Premier Berlusconi

To that end, there should be a ban for street vendors at location disturbing the public and the officials must dare to take decisive action against them if there are street vendors violating. As revealed by an economist from Mahasaraswati University Denpasar, Wayan Sujana, the street vendors should be well managed and were not let be chaotic and arbitrary. There should be firmness from the authority of county/municipal government or municipal police. “At least, every town must have a zonation for street vendors to sell. Besides, it must also be enforced selectively as well as the administration of residence must be clear. If they indeed sell at prohibited locations, especially in places disturbing the public, the officials in this case the municipal police should dare to crack down, do not take action halfheartedly,” he affirmed.

ROME — Three-time former Premier Silvio Berlusconi was ousted from Parliament on Wednesday after two decades as a lawmaker, defiantly calling it “a day of mourning for democracy” and pledging to continue in politics. After weeks of maneuvering, appeals and even an attempt to bring down the government, Berlusconi’s delay tactics ran their course when the Senate voted to kick him out of the chamber due to a tax fraud conviction. Ever a populist, the 77-year-old billionaire chose the piazza over the Senate floor, addressing a crowd of cheering supporters outside his Roman palazzo as the vote was under way just a short walk away. “We are here on a bitter day, a day of mourning for democracy,” Berlusconi declared. He said his political enemies — including the judiciary he accuses of mounting a campaign against him — were “toasting” his demise. “They are actually euphoric,” he said. Berlusconi pledged to remain in politics — effectively launching a campaign in which he won’t be able to stand for office — noting that other political leaders are not lawmakers. He cited Beppe Grillo, the former comic and founder of the anti-

establishment 5 Star Movement, and Matteo Renzi, the Florence mayor who is a Democratic Party star widely tipped as a future premier candidate. The Senate vote bars Berlusconi from running or holding office for at least six years under a 2012 law applied to anyone sentenced to more than two years in prison. Berlusconi was sentenced to four years on a tax fraud conviction relating to the purchase of TV rights to U.S. films on his Mediaset network, charges he continues to deny. The sentence was automatically reduced to one year by a general amnesty, which he will serve either under house arrest or doing public service. In the last election, Berlusconi’s now-defunct and splintered People of Freedom Party garnered 7.3 million votes, or 21.5 percent of the vote. Berlusconi’s charisma remains compelling to many Italians despite his ongoing judicial woes. “I think for the time being he still controls a substantial number of voters,” said Roberto D’Alimonte, a political analyst at Rome’s LUISS University. “He hasn’t lost the hardcore voters.” But D’Alimonte said to maintain them he will have to “be aggressive, be his usual Berlusconi” and not appear to be weakening, even physically due to age.

earliest designs. Blow met McQueen at his graduate fashion show in 1992, and famously bought up his entire collection. She commissioned headdresses for her wedding from Treacy when he was still a student. She wore their designs everywhere, and used her network to promote both men. Four years later McQueen dedicated a collection — his first to receive international acclaim — in tribute to her. In the same year, she also styled a successful show for Treacy. Treacy went on to work for Chanel and became Britain’s best-known milliner, while McQueen achieved further fame and success — until he, like Blow, lost his battle with depression and took his own life in 2010. The exhibition traced Blow’s early life and her aristocratic background, which curator Alistair O’Neill said was key to her appeal and success. “She traded on her family history and her Britishness,” he said. “She was this attractive, artistic figure. She had no money, but lots of stories and lots of style.”

Wacik chairs ASEAN’s mineral ministerial meeting Antara

NUSA DUA - Indonesia’s Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources Jero Wacik chaired the 4th Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Mineral Ministerial Meeting (AMIMM) on Thursday.

LONDON — She wore everything from a crystal-studded lobster to a tall ship made of feathers on her head, and chose a purple medieval robe for her wedding dress. Long before Lady Gaga rose to fame, British fashion editor and stylist Isabella Blow made theatrical clothes and outlandish headgear her personal trademark. A major exhibition opens in London Wednesday to celebrate the life and style of Blow, who is best known for discovering British designers Alexander McQueen and Philip Treacy when they were young students and promoting them as they rose to international acclaim. Eccentric, flamboyant and witty, Blow was editor at Tatler and other magazines, muse to designers and one of the most influential personalities in fashion before she committed suicide by drinking weed-killer in 2007. She was 48. “Isabella Blow was a champion of creative talent. So much that we know today would never have happened without her vision, and her support of British fashion and creativity was unique,” said Louise Wilson, a professor at Central Saint Martins college who taught McQueen and many other designers. The show at Somerset House features Blow’s personal collection of more than 100 rare designer items, including many of Treacy’s most dramatic hats and some of McQueen’s

The meeting aims to discuss a number of proposals, which had been formulated during the ASEAN Senior Officials’ Mineral Meeting (ASOMM) and ASOMM plus 3 on November 26 and 27. ASOMM Chairman R Sukhyar stated that the ASEAN senior officials’ meeting had agreed to discuss nine proposals during the AMIMM. Among the formulations was a proposal to include trade, investment and technology aspects in ASEAN’s mineral database. “The mineral database will be located in Indonesia and is ready to be launched during the ASEAN mineral ministerial meeting,” he said. The ASEAN mineral ministers will also discuss the desire of ASEAN to develop rare earth mineral utilization technology or tin ore mineral byproducts. Sukhyar pointed out that Indonesia also had an interest in the rare earth mineral utilization program, owing to the fact that Indonesia had many mineral deposits in a number of regions, particularly in the tin producing district of Bangka Belitung (Babel). Rare earth minerals have so far been wastefully disposed off together with

tailing, although the minerals are very useful for the telecommunications industry. Within the framework of cooperation with ASEAN, Japan said it was prepared to share technology used in the utilization of rare mineral deposits. The other important issue, which needed to be discussed during the fourth AMINN, is the strengthening of ASEAN’s capacity for protecting the environment of mining activities, postmining reclamation and mineral processing technology. The meeting will also discuss developments in the processing of sand quartz for the ceramic and glass industries, as well as acid waste processing management for the mineral industry, Sukhyar noted. In the meantime, Indonesia had earlier asked Japan, China and South Korea to be transparent about their mineral import requirements and provide guidance on the outlook for minerals to ensure market stability. “Guidance on the outlook, such as the guidance for energy, is very important to maintain balanced supply and demand in the region’s mineral and metal markets,”

Sukhyar said on Wednesday. Some ASEAN members, such as Indonesia, the Philippines, Laos, Myanmar and Vietnam are producers and exporters of metals and minerals, he pointed out. He noted that Indonesia and the Philippines were the main producers of nickel ore in the region, while Laos was a leading producer of gold. Myanmar, Vietnam and Indonesia are tin exporters. “Therefore, ASEAN is appropriately concerned about ensuring that supply and demand in the mineral and metal markets are balanced to ensure price stability,” he added. The Head of the Geology Agency under the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources stated that China and Japan have, so far, imported large quantities of metal and mineral ores from Indonesia, especially nickel, which is processed to produce stainless steel. He said Indonesia’s proposal had been received positively by the three ASEAN partners. “In the ASOMM+3 meeting, they accepted Indonesia’s proposal and even offered to assist in preparing the outlook,” he added.

NYC stores trim their windows as gifts to the city Associated Press Writer

This Nov. 20, 2013 photo shows a shopper leaving Barneys New York next to the store’s Christmas window featuring a light show called “City Lights.” The window is one of four holiday windows promoting a charitable collaboration between Barneys and Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter.

NEW YORK — Forget window shopping, some of Manhattan’s biggest and most storied retailers say their elaborate seasonal window displays are a gift to passers-by. Reimagining every major holiday covered in a slick coating of ice, recreating cozy Christmas-morning scenes and paying homage to a local legend can be a yearlong labor of love. “Every store has their own style,” says David Hoey, senior director of visual presentation at Bergdorf Goodman. “We try to pick a theme that will lend itself for us to go to town. We all do.” At his corner of 57th Street and Fifth Avenue, arguably one of the most famous shopping intersections in the world, Hoey isn’t just celebrating Christmas, he’s paying homage to 12 holidays, including Valentine’s Day, Independence Day and Halloween. One of his favorite windows is the April Fool’s Day display that depicts a lovely outdoor springtime scene — assembled upside down.

Kitty-corner from Bergdorf is Tiffany & Co. and its scenes that aim to capture the New York holiday of your best dreams and memories. “We are telling a story of the lives that go on here and the interactions that happen on Christmas Day and on that morning in New York City,” says Richard Moore, vice president of creative visual merchandising. He does add a little product to the scenes — it is a store, after all — but the holiday windows aren’t as much about pushing sales. “It’s about holiday spirit and celebrated tradition. The windows are for all ages, all different cultures. We just want you to stop and look and engage in our windows.” Hoey eagerly visits the windows of the other big stores. It’s a treat and a tradition, he says. “Window dressers and the people who do window displays is a very small community. We look at everyone’s windows. We are just as excited to see the other windows as everyone else is.” Moore soaks up the season, too. “There’s no better time to think about (the) next holiday than this holiday.”

Heritage protection fee considered invent new problem Bali Post

DENPASAR - The policy to charge a donation of USD 10 intended for heritage protection was criticized by the Bali tourism businesspeople. Without obvious consideration, this policy was assessed to invent and tended to kindle new problems. “Tax collection should not invent. Rationally, we consider that donation worth USD 10 looks like an inventing policy,” said Deputy Chairman of the Indonesian Tourism Industry Association (GIPI) of Bali Chapter, Bagus Sudibya. He also considered the heritage protection rule would be potentially counter-productive because it was not socialized. Even, if it was enforced without obvious consideration, it would result in rejection in the future. “We also question whether the cultural preservation is the responsibility of travelers or people becoming the owner of the culture. Meanwhile, concrete things like the charge of admission fee to tourist objects or cultural heritage is natural thing,” he said. According to him, the rule-making related to the protection of cultural heritage should be seen in terms of law and fairness. To that end, the experts had to formulate and find a reason whether the rule was worthy or unworthy to be promulgated. “Tax collection is essentially for the welfare of its people. On that account, in the future the rule on cultural heritage should be assessed, enacted, implemented and monitored consistently and professionally,” he said. Nevertheless, Bagus Sudibya admitted if he still doubted the donation rule because the legal basis in use as a reference was not clear. “We are still very dubious about the rationale of collecting the donation worth USD 10. Moreover, the regulation will be reinforced in regional bylaw or gubernatorial regulation. Meanwhile, the law used as a reference is not clear,” he said. It was mentioned that every regional bylaw or gubernatorial regulation should be based on the higher law. Any regional bylaw or gubernatorial regulation should not be contradictory to the higher rules. For example, regional bylaw or gubernatorial regulation on Hotel and Restaurant Tax (PHR) would surely have a legal basis. It considered many aspects by referring to the government regulation or law on Hotel and Restaurant Tax. “If it has been set forth in the Hotel and Restaurant Tax for the same interest, then it should not be applied two times on the other rules,” he said. He added when the basic consideration of the benefits of regulation on heritage protection based on the benefits of regional bylaw or gubernatorial regulation on the collection of Hotel and Restaurant Tax for cultural preservation, the regional bylaw or gubernatorial regulation would automatically disqualify in the judicial review. “Conversely, if in the collection of Hotel and Restaurant Tax is not mentioned the benefits of cultural preservation, this can become a consideration in the regional bylaw / gubernatorial regulation on the heritage protection,” he said.

sellers actually had been violating the Consumer Act because they had been selling certain types of goods, but the goods delivered were different. “It has violated the Article 4 of Consumer Law. In other words, consumers have not been given the correct and honest explanation,” he said. His party did not question about the trading through online system, but the most important was to get permission, at least from the local government. “Everyone may perform online

business but at least it must be known by local government so that the consumers will not feel disadvantaged,” he said. Related to the settlement of complaints, Armaya said that his party resolved more disputes of consumers through mediation. For example, throughout the year 2012, a number of consumer complaints handled from January to December had been resolved through litigation or mediation between the consumers and businesses to get the best solution. “We have handled some of

those complaints so that no parties feel to be harmed, such as the companies have replaced the losses of consumers either in the form of goods or services,” he said. But on the other hand, he said, there was also a case to be prosecuted, considering such cases could not find any solution or settlement. “There are also legal cases that could not be resolved, then it was taken a class action suit as we have executed early in January 2013,” he said.

Springsteen ‘Born to Run’ manuscript is for sale

Associated Press Writer

NEW YORK — A handwritten working manuscript of Bruce Springsteen’s 1975 hit “Born to Run” will be offered at auction on Dec. 5, with a presale estimate of $70,000 to $100,000, Sotheby’s said Wednesday. The seller was not revealed. The auction house said the document used to be in the collection of Springsteen’s former manager, Mike Appel. Sotheby’s said most of the lines in this 1974 version, written in Long Branch, New Jersey, are apparently unpublished and unrecorded, but the manuscript does include “a nearly perfected chorus.” Springsteen’s thought process, written

in blue ink on a sheet of ruled notepaper, looks like this: “This town’ll rip the (out your) bones from yourback / it’s a suicide trap (rap) (it’s a trap to catchthe young) your dead unless / you get out (we gotto) while your young so (come on! / with) take myhand cause tramps / like us baby we were born to run.” “The imagery and tone are constant from the present manuscript to the final song,” the auctioneer said. There are also some words in the margins: “Wild” and “Angels” and a word that looks like “velocity,” with the letter “t’’ in Springsteen’s curlicue cursive. “Although Springsteen is known to have an intensive drafting process, few

LAS VEGAS — A judge denied O.J. Simpson’s bid for a new trial on an armed robbery and kidnapping conviction, ruling Wednesday that the evidence is overwhelming that the former football star “planned, organized and led” a group of armed men in a confrontation with two sports memorabilia dealers six years ago. Simpson had spent the last six months anxiously awaiting the ruling that he hoped would spring him from the medium-security prison where he has been jailed for five years. The football Hall of Famer based his appeal on claims of ineffective legal counsel. Simpson’s lawyers vowed Wednesday to keep appealing for his freedom. “He was disappointed and disheartened, as was his family,” lawyer Patricia Palm said of Simpson’s reaction to the news.

“But we’re definitely not giving up.” Simpson, 66, is serving nine to 33 years for his conviction on armed robbery, kidnapping and other charges. He was granted parole on some convictions in July, but still faces at least four more years in prison. Simpson was acquitted in 1995 in the stabbing deaths of his ex-wife and her friend after one of the most sensational trials in U.S. history Simpson’s next opportunity for freedom

will be in an appeal to the Nevada Supreme Court. His legal team planned to file a notice of appeal as early as next week with the state’s highest court. Palm said they’re also preparing a federal court claim that Simpson’s fair trial rights were violated. “He is looking forward to the appeal,” Palm said. “We’re confident that when we get to the right court we’ll get relief because he deserves relief.” The 101-page ruling by Clark County District Court Judge Linda Marie Bell comes after she held five days of hearings earlier this year on claims that Simpson’s former lawyer botched his 2008 trial and appeals to the Nevada Supreme Court. The hearings included testimony by Simpson. In her order released after business hours Tuesday, the judge ruled Simpson “failed to pinpoint significant errors that either alone or combined would have changed the outcome of his case. Additionally, Mr. Simpson has failed to demonstrate significant errors from his appeal.” The lawyer who handled Simpson’s trial and appeals, Yale Galanter, faulted Simpson’s current attorneys for questioning his work and said he felt vindicated. “In an effort to capture the spotlight, O.J.’s new legal team created a laundry list of falsehoods and attacked my reputation and integrity without contacting me to get the facts, review my files or review any of the documented evidence in the case,” Galanter said. Bell faulted Galanter for collecting excessive fees from Simpson and not hiring experts or investigators for his defense, and identified other mistakes. But the judge said none would have made a difference in the outcome.

Tourists sunbathing at Kuta Beach, Bali Island. Travel advisory issued by Australian government for its citizens that would visit Indonesia had not had an impact on Australian tourist arrivals to Bali especially Badung County.

Government worries Australian tourist arrivals to decline Bali Post

MANGUPURA - Travel advisory issued by Australian government for its citizens that would visit Indonesia had not had an impact on Australian tourist arrivals to Bali especially Badung County. Nevertheless, Badung County worried if the central government did not immediately take action to improve the bilateral relations. “If the relationship between Indonesia and Australia continues to deteriorate, it will certainly affect the Australian tourist arrival in Bali,” said Head of Badung Gov-

ernment Tourism Office, Cokorda Raka Darmawan, Wednesday (Nov 27). Based on the data in the Badung Government Tourism Office, the

Australian travelers gave considerable contribution to tourism in Bali. Each month, the average visit of Australian tourists to Bali reached the range of 60,000-70,000. Such amount was quite large when compared to foreign travelers from other countries. During the deterioration of relations between Indonesia and Australia to the issuance of travel advisory, the tourist arrival of Australian market in Bali was still relatively stable and did not

do change significantly. “But it still needs to be confirmed again because we have no data for November,” he said. Further, his party expected the central government to take strategic steps to resolve the issue with the Australian government. Otherwise, there would be a possibility for the issuance of a travel warning. He added the target of foreign tourist arrival in 2013 reached 3 million people coming to Bali,

especially Badung. Meanwhile, domestic traveler was targeted to double of foreign tourist arrival or reached 6 million people. To pursue the target, Badung County attempted to arrange the attraction and potential tourist destinations. Currently, there were 33 tourist attractions and the number would increase as the emergence of new attractions such as the Pandawa Beach, Bangkung River Bridge and other attractions managed by private sectors.
