Indonesian foreign debt up 7.5 percent in January on high government borrowingIndonesian foreign debt up 7.5 percent in January on high government borrowing
Indonesia’s foreign debt rose in January due to an increase in the government’s net borrowing, mainly through the issuance of government debt papers (SBNs).According to data released by Bank Indonesia on Monday, the country’s foreign debt, which includes borrowing by both the government and the private sector, was up 7.5 percent year-on-year (yoy) at US$410.8 billion in January, but that marks a slight slowdown in the annual growth rate from 7.7 percent recorded in December.The government’s foreign debt, which include those raised by the central bank, rose 9.5 percent yoy in January to $207.8 billion, driven by the issuance of SBN including dollar-denominated bonds worth $2 billion and another €1 billion ($1.11 billion) of debt papers issued in Europe to finance the budget deficit in 2020. Finance Minister Sri Mulyani Indrawati said previously that Indonesia’s budget deficit may widen from 2.2 of GDP to 2.5 percent in 2020. The new forecast takes into account the impact of the outbreak and a slump in oil prices driven by Saudi Arabia’s decision to launch a price war against Russia.BI explained on Monday that the government debt was largely used to fund healthcare and social services, which accounted for 23.5 percent of total government debt, as well as for the education (16.3 percent) and construction sector (16.2 percent), among other sectors.Private-sector debt, which also include loans to state-owned enterprises (SOEs), expanded 5.8 percent yoy to $203.04 in January, slowing down from 6.5 percent growth booked in December amid slowing growth in financial services.Private-sector debt was largely disbursed to four sectors, namely financial services and insurance, electricity, gas and steam procurement, mining as well as manufacturing. Those sectors accounted for 77.3 percent of the private-sector external debt.Topics : Despite the latest increase in external debt, the central bank deems the overall level healthy as the foreign-debt-to-gross-domestic-product (GDP) ratio was recorded at 36 percent, down from the previous month. Long-term loans account for about 89 percent of the current outstanding debt.“Bank Indonesia, in close coordination with the government, continues to monitor the external debts by promoting the prudential principle implementation in its management to maintain a solid external debt structure,” the central bank wrote in a statement.“Furthermore, the external debts’ role will be optimized to finance development while minimizing risks that can affect economic stability.”Read also: Lower income, rising debt expected as Indonesia unveils extra stimulus
Around 20 Malian soldiers were killed on Monday in an apparent jihadist attack, officials said, in the latest bout of violence to hit the war-torn West African state.Early Monday morning, militants attacked a military base in the northern town of Bamba, according to a local government official, who called the assailants “terrorists” and said at least 20 soldiers had died. Another local official gave a similar account, explaining that the assailants arrived on motorbikes and in cars. Topics : Jihadist talksThe Mali attack comes despite attempts to reinvigorate the country’s political life in the hope of staunching the bloodshed.The former French colony braved threats of violence and coronavirus infection on March 29 to stage much-delayed elections to parliament.The hope is that the new assembly will implement reforms from a 2015 peace agreement brokered between the Bamako government and several armed groups. Implementation has been painfully slow, although this year saw the Malian army deploy units made up of both former rebels and regulars — a key provision of the deal. The pact also provides for government decentralization, a demand of some of the rebel groups.Parallel to these efforts, the government in Bamako has also said it is prepared to enter into talks with jihadist groups.Al-Qaeda-affiliated jihadists have indicated that they are prepared to negotiate with the government, but only if French and UN troops pull out. “Investigations are still ongoing on the ground because the death toll must be higher than the 20 deaths announced,” the official said. Mali has been struggling to contain a jihadist revolt that first broke out in the north in 2012, and has since spread to the center of the country and neighboring Burkina Faso and Niger. Thousands of Malian soldiers and civilians have died, despite the presence of thousands of French and UN troops.It was not immediately clear who carried out Monday’s attack. A resident of Bamba, who spoke to AFP on condition of anonymity, said armed men had been riding motorbikes around nearby villages since Sunday, before gathering for the dawn attack.”We saw 23 bodies on the spot,” the Bamba resident said, describing the aftermath of the raid, adding that militants had destroyed the camp and stolen equipment.”No civilian was hurt, this was an operation against the camp,” the resident added.A Malian army official stationed in northern Mali confirmed an attack had taken place in Bamba but said there had been losses on both sides. He added the army did not have a clear idea of enemy losses as the raiders took their casualties with them when they left. Another military official told AFP that reinforcements had been dispatched to the area. The attack in Mali follows another in jihadist-ridden northern Cameroon on Sunday.Two suicide bombers — suspected to be members of Nigeria’s Boko Haram jihadist group — blew themselves up in a border town in the Central African country and killed seven people.
‘Should I buy a mask or food?’. South Asia’s poor face stark choice‘Should I buy a mask or food?’. South Asia’s poor face stark choice
Topics : “But how it impacts individuals differs vastly depending on their access to food, shelter, health and other basic needs.”Mark-ups In India, the business tycoon Anand Mahindra had to backtrack after tweeting an image of a woman and small child wearing leaves as makeshift masks with the words, “a reminder that nature provides us with all that we need”.He deleted the tweet saying it was “insensitive to the inequity of the situation” after others pointed out there was no evidence leaves provided protection from the virus.In Sri Lanka, authorities have capped prices at 15 rupees (eight cents) for a disposable surgical-style mask and 150 rupees for the closer-fitting ones sometimes called respirators.Yet locals said it was difficult to find either at those prices, with pharmacies marking up costs.”Earlier we bought surgical masks for 15 rupees, but now they are not available at that price and some sell the same masks at 75 rupees,” said Hashan, who lives in a slum in the capital Colombo.”So most of the people in our area are wearing homemade masks now,” he said, declining to give his full name as he was outside during the lockdown.South Asia has been less hard hit by the virus than many other parts of the world, with confirmed coronavirus deaths in India – a country of 1.3 billion – still below the 1,000 mark.But Nipuna Kumbalathara, a spokesman for Oxfam in Asia, said cases like Hashan’s highlighted the need for greater public investment.”Clearly people who are struggling to put meals on their tables can’t pay for their safety kits, testing or care,” he said by email, urging governments to provide protective gear to poor and vulnerable people.DIY masks The World Health Organization says masks only need to be worn by those who are sick and showing symptoms, and those caring for people suspected to have the disease.Although many governments are mandating the use of masks to curb the spread of the virus as they relax lockdown measures, others have urged the public not to buy them while there are shortages to ensure adequate supplies for healthcare workers.In India, the government has released a manual for DIY face-coverings, including ones using rubber bands.Many South Asians have found stopgap ways to cover their faces – from the loose end of sarees and scarves to handkerchiefs and towels – used before the outbreak to block out the sun, dust and pollution.Meanwhile, police teams, charities and women’s self-help groups have been making millions of washable masks that they give to poor and rural communities free or at a low cost.Saral Design Solutions, a Mumbai-based start-up that makes low-cost sanitary pads, has switched to manufacturing up to 70 three-ply disposable surgical masks every minute for less than 6 cents each.But these are the exception – most have no choice but to pay over the odds for poor-quality masks that they are only rarely able to wash.”I have been using this one for many days now,” said autorickshaw driver Gul Pacha Pacha in Kabul, pointing to a dirty, worn disposable mask as middle-class Afghan men wearing gloves and proper face-coverings walked by.”It is difficult to breathe with it on, so I only wear it when I have passengers.” Wearing a mask in public is now compulsory in India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka and advised by Afghanistan and Bangladesh, and demand and prices have soared.With basic disposable mask now costing up to $7 in some places, that has created a new form of inequality in cities where hundreds of millions live in cramped, unhygienic conditions.Meenakshi Ganguly, South Asia director for Human Rights Watch, said coronavirus lockdown measures had disproportionately hurt marginalized communities.”Certainly the coronavirus itself does not distinguish between prince or pauper, race or religion,” said Ganguly. Buy a mask and let his family go hungry, or buy food and go out into the crowded city without one – that is the stark choice facing Hayatullah Khan, an Afghan laborer whose daily earnings have fallen below $1.50 during the coronavirus pandemic.Like many poor South Asians, Khan has no choice but to leave the house for work. But even without the hit to his earnings from the coronavirus pandemic, he would have struggled to afford the mask authorities tell him he should wear.”I have earned less than 100 afghani ($1.32) today. What am I going to do?,” Khan told the Thomson Reuters Foundation in the Afghan capital Kabul. “Should I buy a mask or food for my family?”
Chelsea: Cavani on a free, Dembele blow, Newcastle chase GiroudChelsea: Cavani on a free, Dembele blow, Newcastle chase Giroud
The Telegraph state that Newcastle made contact with the Blues last week about a move for the striker, but he will only be allowed to leave Stamford Bridge if they can bring in a replacement. Chelsea are reportedly considering a bid for Bayern Munich left-back David Alaba, who is rated at around £60m. Neither Marcos Alonso or Emerson Palmieri have failed to convince as a starting left-back during Frank Lampard’s time at the club, with Cesar Azpilicueta often deputising on the left and Reece James coming in at right-back. The Mirror states that Lampard is eyeing a move for the Austrian defender, who has 18 months remaining on his deal with the Bundesliga giants. The 27-year-old would apparently add the experience Lampard is craving in his side to supplement the youthful side of the team. Chelsea and Manchester United have both reportedly made contact with Edinson Cavani about a free transfer at the end of the season. The striker – who turns 33 in February – is coming to the end of his Paris Saint-Germain deal, and has apparently agreed on terms on a potential move to Atletico Madrid. Read Also:Chelsea flop joins Aston Villa on season-long loan However, L’Equipe report that Cavani is yet to sign the deal, and United have made initial contact with the striker’s representatives, while Chelsea are said to have made an opening formal inquiry. Cavani is said to have a meeting with PSG sporting director Leonardo coming up, and could even leave the club this month depending on PSG’s flexibility and the offers they receive. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Loading… Fresh from securing a place in the fourth round of the FA Cup, Chelsea’s attention will now switch back to the January transfer window. Speculation continues to build surrounding the future of Olivier Giroud and Michy Batshuayi as Chelsea look to bolster their striking options. While the continued speculation linking Nathan Ake with a return to Stamford Bridge this month won’t go away. With that in mind, here’s a round-up of all the day’s latest transfer news and rumours for Chelsea. Chelsea have reportedly been dealt a blow in their attempt to sign Moussa Dembele from Lyon. The 22-year-old is the French side’s top scorer this season, with 14 goals in all competitions. The young striker has been linked with Frank Lampard’s side, with Lyon recently taking the unusual measure of releasing a statement saying that they want to keep the striker for “seasons to come”. However, he is said to be “desperate” for a move in the summer. Newcastle are one of the clubs said to be considering a move for Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud. The 33-year-old is out of contract at the end of the season and able to negotiate a free transfer for the summer. However, with Euro 2020 looming, the striker is hopeful of a move to gain more first team football and secure his place in France’s squad.

KIRKWOOD, N.Y. – The Empire State Series for IMCA Xtreme Motor Sports Modifieds starts its trek toward a new milestone at the same track that hosted the last one.Opening night for the 14th annual series is Sunday, April 12 at Five Mile Point Speedway in Kirkwood, site of the 100th event in tour history last November. In all, nine dates are scheduled at five different tracks this season. The top paying event – the winner goes home with $2,500 – doubles as the inaugural Northeast Shootout at Weedsport Speedway on Sunday, May 3. IMCA Speedway Motors Weekly Racing National, Dirt Works Eastern Region, special series and Allstar Performance State points will also be awarded when the tour is at Black Rock Speedway in Dundee on Fridays, May 22 and Sept. 18; at Skyline Raceway in Cortland on Sunday, May 24 and Saturday, Sept. 19; and at I-88 Speedway in Afton on Fridays, June 12 and July 31. Special series points only will be given for the Saturday, Oct. 10 finale at Five Mile Point. “No changes have been made in the series format. A minimum of $400 will be paid to win and $75 to start each night,” noted IMCA Director of Track Relations Jim Stannard. “Top 10 drivers in final standings earn point fund shares and the series champion becomes eligible to qualify for the Harris Auto Racing Race of Champions during the 2016 IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals fueled by Casey’s.”The series event at Weedsport will be the first held at the Cayuga County Fairgrounds facility. At the other end of the spectrum are Five Mile Point and Skyline, which have hosted 16 and 15 of the first 100 tour events, respectively. “We’ve enjoyed tremendous support from promoters and tracks in the Dirt Works Eastern Region, as the longevity of the Empire State Series proves,” Stannard said. “To have had so many different winners (38) over the course of the tour also shows how good the Empire State Series competition really is.”
Mr. James Ernest “Jimmy” Brooks, of Grammer, Indiana, formerly of Switzerland County, Indiana, passed from life on June 2, 2020 after nearly 85 years here on earth. Jimmy Brooks was born on June 21, 1935 to Robert Maurice and Helen Ernestine Swango Brooks. Jimmy spent most of his young life on a small tobacco and cattle farm located on Brooks Road just north of Mt. Sterling in Switzerland County. With the money he saved raising tobacco and cattle, he bought his first car which was a 1949 Ford, three on the tree with overdrive. Jimmy graduated from Switzerland County High School in 1953 and began working at the U.S. Shoe Corporation in Vevay. He married Marietta K. Webb on April 7, 1955. Jimmy pulled his 20 foot trailer to Columbus with a barrowed jeep in 1956 as he started his new job with Cummins Engine Company with his wife and daughter in tow. The family later moved to a small four room house located in Grammer that with the help of his Dad and Father-in-law a breeze-way and nice garage was added. Jimmy always loved working on his vehicles and maintaining them and was a long time die hard Ford man and Nascar fan. Jimmy mainly worked 2nd and 3rd shift at Cummins which allowed him to work a second job for various farmers around Grammer for several years and he purchased forty acres on the west edge of Grammer in 1971. His first farm tractor that he purchased was a 1953 C A Allis Chalmers wide front end that would pull two fourteens and pop a wheelie when you lifted the seven foot disc up at the turns. His first cow purchase for the new farm was a Herford “of course” that he named “Elsie” that was also blind in one eye. After startling Elsie one day by approaching her on her blind side and finding out she could kick like a mule, he found out why he bought her so cheap. The first pig on the farm was a ruptured feisty gilt that was given to his son for helping Bob Dickey cut pigs at his farm and she was named “Arnold”. Arnold had several litters and ate a lot of free Saps out of date donuts that Jimmy would bring in by the pickup load. After his divorce from Marietta, Jimmy married Lois Irene Aldred on March 6, 1977 who sold her farm in Mt. Sterling and brought her equipment to their new house and barns on the Grammer farm. Jimmy and Lois worked side by side together on their farm for many years raising livestock, hay and grain. Jimmy retired from Cummins in 1988 after 32 years of employment and continued to farm until 2001 when he and Lois had their farm sale. Jimmy was a member of the Alert Masonic Lodge No. 395 F&AM in Alert, Indiana. Jimmy was also a member of Bear Creek Baptist Church and supported his local Democrat Party. The family of Jimmy would like to express their sincere gratitude to the wonderful staff at Miller’s Merry Manor in Hope, Indiana for their excellent care of Jimmy these last three and a half years and also to all Hospice staff for their wonderful care.Jimmy will be missed by his wife, Lois Irene (VanTyle) Aldred-Brooks of Hope, IN; his daughter, Leta Brooks of Scipio, IN; his son, Dennis Brooks and his wife, Debbie of Elizabethtown, IN; his step-daughters, Marla Lamson and her husband, Loren of Vevay, IN and Anita Sanders of North Vernon, IN; his sisters, Joann Baxter of Aurora, IN and Kay Neal of Jacksonville, FL; his sister-in-law, Mary Ann Haskell of Columbus, IN; his grandchildren, Jason Brooks, Jennifer Brooks, Kayla Brooks, Doug Sanders, Dustin Sanders, Alicia Lack, Ashley Sanders, Marlena Townsend, Ben Lamson, James Lamson, Loren Jr Lamson and Dorothy Lamson and his several great-grandchildren.He was preceded in death by his parents, Robert Maurice Brooks, died October 19, 1987 and Helen Ernestine (Swango) Brooks, died August 20, 1989; his daughter, Veda Dawn Brooks, died July 2, 1971; his 1st wife, Marietta Kay (Webb) Brooks, died February 15, 1996; his step-daughter, Jama Lois (Aldred) Hayes, died February 6, 2017; his great-grandchildren, Landon and Lucas Weaver; his brother, Johnny Brooks; his brother-in-laws, Bob Robinson, Harold Neal and Bud Baxter and his nephew, Tony Neal.Funeral services will be conducted Monday, June 8, 2020, at 1:00 p.m., by Pastor Bill Secrest at the Haskell & Morrison Funeral Home, 208 Ferry Street, Vevay, Indiana 47043.Interment will follow in the Vevay Cemetery, Vevay, Indiana.Friends may call 11:00 a.m. – 12:45 p.m., Monday, June 8, 2020, at the Haskell & Morrison Funeral Home, 208 Ferry Street, Vevay, Indiana 47043.Masonic Services will be conducted Monday, June 8, 2020, at 12:45 p.m., by the Switzerland Masonic Lodge No. 122 F&AM at the Haskell & Morrison Funeral Home, 208 Ferry Street, Vevay, Indiana 47043.Memorial contributions may be made to the Bartholomew County Hospice or the Bartholomew County Democrat Central Committee.

ICC World Cup India’s World Cup moments: 1979 edition the height of ignominy with Sri Lanka lossICC World Cup India’s World Cup moments: 1979 edition the height of ignominy with Sri Lanka loss
India looked to end their World Cup on a high against Sri Lanka, who was the associate nation at that time in the world of cricket. However, Sri Lanka chose to stake their place in the history books and they pulled off a major heist. Fifties from Sunil Wettimuny, Roy Dias and Duleep Mendis helped Sri Lanka reach 238/5. Somachandra de Silva and Tony Opatha picked up three wickets apiece as Sri Lanka secured a famous 47-run win in Manchester.Following their exit from the World Cup, things got worse for India in the four-Test series against England. The first Test in Birmingham was won by England with a margin of an innings and 83 runs. David Gower’s double century and sparkling 155 from Geoff Boycott and a five-wicket haul from Ian Botham gave England a big win. After the next two Tests were drawn, India was left chasing a target of 438 but Sunil Gavaskar’s epic 221 almost helped India achieve the impossible but they fell nine runs short.India’s 1979 tour started off in disaster, but it ended in an almost glorious heist. India lost for the first time to Sri Lanka in the ICC Cricket World Cup.India lost the four-match Test series 1-0.India had lost five out of six games in the 1975 and 1979 World Cup. highlights For all the Latest Sports News News, ICC World Cup News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: India’s tour to England for the 1979 World Cup and the subsequent four-Test series was a total disaster. The team was criticised for having a wrong team composition, picking very few bowlers and loading the side with batsmen. There were apparent reports of a rift within the team, with Sunil Gavaskar being dumped as captain and Srinivas Venkataraghavan being appointed as the skipper of the team. The tensions in the dressing room combined with questions over the composition of the side was a recipe for disaster. And in 1979, it was indeed a disaster. India was paired with West Indies, New Zealand and Sri Lanka in their group and they stumbled in the very beginning.In the first match against West Indies at Birmingham, Gundappa Viswanathan scored 75 but Michael Holding picked up 4/33 to bowl India out for 190. In response, Gordon Greenidge blasted 106 and his partnership of 138 helped West Indies win by nine wickets. In the next game against New Zealand, a spirited show from the bowlers, led by Sir Richard Hadlee, Lance Cairns and Brian McKechnie helped them bowl India out for 182. Bruce Edgar’s brilliant 84 and aggressive knocks from John Wright and Glenn Turner gave New Zealand an eight-wicket win.

…Trelawny Stadium in Jamaica to host two regional four-day matches after 11-year break CRICKET West Indies (CWI) has scheduled the fifth-round match between Jamaica Scorpions and Leeward Islands Hurricanes from February 13 to 16 at the venue, along with the sixth-round match between the Scorpions and Guyana Jaguars from February 27 to March 1.CWI director of cricket, Jimmy Adams, said the stadium is scheduled to stage a Twenty20 International in two years’ time and this was part of the process to get the ground in shape.“It will be good to see the Trelawny Stadium hosting regional cricket again after so many years with this effort from the Jamaica Cricket Association (JCA)to build its capacity in western Jamaica,” said Adams.Only one West Indies Championship match has been played at the ground in the past, when current West Indies team operations manager Rawl Lewis led Windward Islands to a three-wicket victory over Jamaica in 2009.The ground has staged five other first-class matches – two involving international teams touring the Caribbean, and three involving West Indies A and counterparts from Sri Lanka and England.The stadium was completed in 2007 before the ICC Cricket World Cup 2007 West Indies and can seat 25,000.Adams said he was excited about the forthcoming West Indies Championship season and working with the new West Indies senior selection panel – under chairman Roger Harper – to identify the next wave of players to stake their claims for the West Indies Test team.“A new season is always an occasion for optimism as we expect performances from both established and rookie players within the system,” said Adams.“I’m sure the new Selection Panel under Roger Harper will be keen to cast their eyes over this competition which will wrap up our 2019-20 cricket season.”Guyana Jaguars are the five-time, defending champions of the Championship. They open the tournament on the road, when they travel to Antigua to face Leeward Islands Hurricanes at the Vivian Richards Cricket Ground in a day/night contest played with a pink ball.The Championship marks a decade since CWI were the first member of the ICC, cricket’s world governing body, to play a pink-ball match in its first-class competition, when Guyana and Trinidad & Tobago played from January 15 to 18, 2010.Pink-ball matches have now become a standard part of the Championship and each team will play two of these games – home and away – under the tournament format.The other first round matches feature: Trinidad & Tobago Red Force battling Scorpions at the Brian Lara Cricket Academy in Trinidad, and Windward Islands Volcanoes tackling Barbados Pride at the Arnos Vale Cricket Ground in St. Vincent.MATCH SCHEDULE(Play in all matches start at 10 am daily, except where indicated)ROUND 1January 9 to 12Hurricanes vs Jaguars – Vivian Richards Cricket Ground, Antigua (2 pm daily)Red Force vs Scorpions – Brian Lara Cricket Academy, TrinidadVolcanoes vs Pride – Arnos Vale Cricket Ground, St. VincentROUND 2January 16 to 19Scorpions vs Volcanoes – Sabina Park, JamaicaPride vs Jaguars – Kensington Oval, BarbadosRed Force vs Hurricanes – Brian Lara Cricket Academy ***BREAK***Round 4February 6 to 9Jaguars vs Scorpions – Guyana National StadiumHurricanes vs Pride – Warner Park, St. KittsVolcanoes vs Red Force – Windsor Park, DominicaROUND 5February 13 to 16Scorpions vs Hurricanes – Trelawny Stadium, JamaicaPride vs Red Force – Kensington OvalVolcanoes vs Jaguars – Grenada National Stadium, Grenada***BREAK***ROUND 6February 27 to March 1Scorpions vs Jaguars – Trelawny Stadium, JamaicaPride vs Volcanoes – Kensington OvalHurricanes vs Red Force – Warner ParkROUND 7March 5 to 8Red Force vs Pride – Brian Lara Cricket AcademyVolcanoes vs Scorpions – Grenada National StadiumJaguars vs Hurricanes – Guyana National StadiumROUND 8March 12 to 15Red Force vs Volcanoes – Brian Lara Cricket Academy (2 pm daily)Hurricanes vs Scorpions – Vivian Richards Cricket GroundJaguars vs Pride – Guyana National Stadium (2 pm daily)***BREAK***ROUND 9March 26 to 29Pride vs Scorpions – Kensington Oval (2 pm daily)Hurricanes vs Volcanoes – Vivian Richards Cricket GroundRed Force vs Jaguars – Queen’s Park Oval, TrinidadROUND 10April 2 to 5Jaguars vs Volcanoes – Guyana National StadiumScorpions vs Red Force – Sabina Park (2 pm daily)Pride vs Hurricanes – Kensington Oval ROUND 3January 23 to 26Jaguars vs Red Force – Guyana National Stadium, Guyana (9:30 am daily)Scorpions vs Pride – Sabina ParkVolcanoes vs Hurricanes – Daren Sammy Cricket Ground, St. Lucia (2 pm daily)
