Bali revises COVID-19 report: Three cases, not four

first_imgThe Bali administration has corrected its report of confirmed COVID-19 cases in its jurisdiction: There are three, not four. The fourth confirmed case left the island for another province in the country.The Bali administration’s regional secretary, Dewa Made Indra, said the fourth person had visited Bali for a work-related trip, but the individual later reported to authorities in another undisclosed province.“Therefore, we have corrected our data, from four confirmed cases of COVID-19 yesterday to three as of today,” said Dewa during a press conference in Denpasar, Bali on Saturday. He added that two of the three confirmed patients had died and they were both foreign nationals.Read also: French national found dead on Bali sidewalk tests positive for COVID-19One of the deceased had been cremated while another remained in a mortuary at a hospital, he said.“We are still in coordination with the general consulate of the country from which the deceased originated, on how to treat the body post mortem. That’s the reason why we still keep it at the mortuary.”As of Saturday, the administration had also performed contact tracing of the 217 people who had been in close contact with all confirmed cases in the province and asked them to self-isolate at home. He also said the administration was closely observing 95 others suspected to have the disease.“On the other hand, we can also confirm that 71 suspected patients have undergone COVID-19 tests, with 68 of them having been declared negative and hospitals have allowed them to go home. We are still waiting for the [test results of the] rest,” he said. (glh)Topics :last_img read more

National Police change security guard uniforms ‘to ignite pride’

first_imgRead also: Jokowi calls on National Police to uphold humanity, professionalism amid pandemicThe title of the regulation is not to be confused with the Pam Swakarsa paramilitary security forces established by the Indonesian Military (TNI) in 1998 to break up demonstrations. The National Police’s new regulation on Pam Swakarsa only stipulates private security guards such as Satpam or the neighborhood watch (Siskamling).Responding to the regulation, the Indonesian Legal Aid Foundation (YLBHI) raised concerns that security guards wearing similar uniforms to police officers might trigger abuse of power.“There will be groups thinking that as they are legitimized by the police, they feel as if they have more authority than regular citizens,” YLBHI chair Asfinawati told The Jakarta Post on Tuesday.She further lambasted the move saying that the new uniform for private security guards was a tactic to strengthen the police’s legitimacy.“Because they resemble the police and can even be more dangerous because they are indistinguishable.”Asfinawati pointed out that the National Police chief’s regulation itself further risked abuse of power as it stipulated that the private security officers and other groups sanctioned by the police would possess partial police functions, allowing them to carry out public security activities.She also raised concerns that the regulation would allow police to have a wider scope of authority with the private security groups as their extensions.Topics : The National Police now require civilian security guards (Satpam) to wear brown uniforms with a rank badge in order to “honor the profession”, in a move an activist says creates the potential for abuse of power.National Police chief Gen. Idham Azis signed the regulation on private security guards (Pam Swakarsa) on Aug 5, stipulating the uniform change. Private security guards, who previously wore white uniforms for day guards and navy blue uniforms for night guards, will be required to wear five kinds of brown uniform.“In accordance with National Police Chief Regulation No. 4/2020 on private security, there will be a change in the color of the guards’ uniforms,” National Police spokesperson Brig. Gen. Awi Setiyono told on Monday. The regulation also adds badges to the shoulder part of the uniform to display the officer’s rank. The badges will display white triangles for officers, red for managers and yellow for supervisors, with the number of triangles ranging from one to three depending on their rank.Awi said changing the uniform’s color to brown, similar to that of the police, was meant to symbolize “closeness” between private security officers and police officers.“[This is to] honor the security guard profession and ignite their pride as those who carry out the limited function of the police,” he said.The regulation states that private security companies will have one year to implement the uniform change. Officers that violate the uniform provisions will receive a warning letter from the police and will have their license revoked if they are found to have violated the regulation three times.last_img read more

Another eye-watering sale notched on Gold Coast’s ‘Millionaires’ Row’

first_img [email protected] A $4.725 million deal has been penned for 19 Hedges Ave, Mermaid Beach. There’s been another eye-watering multimillion-dollar sale for a beachfront house on the Coast’s illustrious ‘Millionaires’ Row’. The Mermaid Beach property, which was in need of an update, fetched a staggering $4.725 million last week. The three-level, five bedroom home on Hedges Ave was bought by a Gold Coast-based family seeking a slice of the high life. MORE NEWS: Gold Coast tenants forking out up to $4000 a week in rent Mermaid Beach is the Gold Coast’s priciest suburb. Mermaid Beach has a $1.385 million median house price making it the Glitter Strip’s priciest suburb, ­according to CoreLogic data. It is also one of Queensland’s top 10 most expensive suburbs to buy a house. “It’s such a testament to Mermaid Beach and the lifestyle it has to offer — board shorts and thongs, the ­relaxed lifestyle everyone seems to be attracted too,” Mr Stevens said. “Currently I have two to three high-net-worth individuals on my database who are waiting for me to find another beach house to purchase at Mermaid Beach.” CoreLogic data shows 19 Hedges Ave hit the market in November with a negotiable $5.595 million price tag. It last sold in June 2009 for $4.75 million. The sellers were a Brisbane couple who used it as a holiday home. Harcourts Coastal Broadbeach agent Tolemy Stevens said the buyers were looking forward to enjoying the relaxed beachfront lifestyle they have always wanted. “I’m led to believe they will be doing some sort of update and renovation to ensure it suits their family the best it can and to add a little bit of value to the property, which is always nice,” he said.

Mr Stevens said the sale proved the appetite of buyers for prestige real estate had not wavered despite cooling conditions in property felt across the country. “It’s fantastic to see another robust sale on the beachfront of Hedges Ave, proving it is still one of the most sought-after streets in the country,” he said. “While the Sydney and Melbourne markets seem to be having their own ­challenges, we are seeing a lot of those high-net-worth ­individuals deciding to look at blue chip real estate on the Gold Coast, in particular Mermaid Beach, instead of choosing to reinvest in their own backyard. “The demand is still outweighing the supply for luxury beach houses on Hedges and Albatross avenues.” Video Player is loading.Play VideoPlayNext playlist itemMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 0:37Loaded: 0%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -0:37 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedQuality Levels720p720pHD432p432p270p270p180p180pAutoA, selectedAudio Tracken (Main), selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

first_img Defending champions Claire Dowling and Tracy Atkin retained the senior women’s Brenda King Foursomes at Gog Magog, Cambridge – to their great surprise.“We thought we’d thrown it away,” said Claire as she recounted the tale of their last five holes: bogey, bogey, bogey, double bogey, par. Tracy added: “It’s a bit of a surprise, we never imagined we’d still win. (Image © Leaderboard Photography)But despite the finish they pulled off a one-stroke win over the Surrey pair of Alison Gee and Debbie Richards, while Staffordshire’s Sue Spencer and Sally Sketcher were third, two shots further back.Sharing fourth prize were the Frilford Heath pairing of Annie Gowing and Kate Evans who have come so close over recent years, having also been runners-up twice and third. “We’re the bridesmaids,” laughed Annie.Claire (Copt Heath) and Tracy (Leamington & County) have played in this event twice and won twice, building on a friendship which dates back to their days as internationals. But, as they came down the 18th at the end of their second round they were planning their ‘retirement’. “We were talking about packing it in – but now we’ll be back next year!” said Tracy.They opened their defence yesterday with a score of 78 on the Wandlebury course, which put them in a share of second place and a stroke behind the Gee/Richards combination.Today, on the Old course, they reached the turn in two-over par, before they began to falter, eventually returning a second round score of 79.Behind them Alison Gee (Walton Heath) and Debbie Richards (Burhill) had lost their slender lead over the front nine but they kept battling, holing a birdie putt on 15 and hitting the pin on 16. With one hole to play they were sharing the lead once more, only to bogey the last to end their challenge.This was also their second appearance in the event, having come fifth last year. “Perhaps it’ll be third time lucky,” said Debbie as she looked ahead to next year.The handicap trophy was won by Sue Spencer (Whittington Heath) and Sally Sketcher (Trentham), who were playing in the Brenda King for the first time. Sue is a past Staffordshire captain, while Sally was simultaneously the second team captain.Leading final scores157 Claire Dowling (Copt Heath) & Tracy Atkin    (Leamington and County) 78 79158 Alison Gee (Walton Heath) & Debbie Richards (Burhill) 77 81160 Sue Spencer (Whittington Heath) & Sally Sketcher (Trentham)    82 78162 Annie Gowing & Kate Evans (Frilford Heath) 82, 80; Karen Thompson & Gabi Heuchel (East Berkshire) 79 83165 Julie Ballard (Littlestone) & Sheila Stirling (Royal Mid Surrey) 83 82; Suzette Worthington & Paula Crabtree (Bristol & Clifton) 82 83 2 Oct 2013 ‘Surprised’ champions retain Brenda King foursomes last_img read more
