Health groups blast govt for minimal progress in revised tobacco regulation

first_img“Strengthening regulations to control [tobacco] consumption is imperative,” said Sally, noting that the prevalence of noncommunicable diseases was increasing, primarily in connection with high tobacco consumption in the country.Read also: Indonesia fails in tobacco control measuresEchoing Sally, Feni Fitriani Taufik of the Indonesian Society of Respirology (PDPI) urged the government to step up its tobacco control efforts, pointing out that several countries had banned tobacco sales and imports during the pandemic.According to chairman Aru Sudoyo of the Indonesian Cancer Foundation, cigarette consumption was the leading cause of the high incidence of lung cancer among Indonesian men, with 19.4 cases per 100,000 population. Meanwhile, the overall mortality rate for both men and women in Indonesia was 10.9 cases per 100,000 population.“The Health Ministry does not seem to take the situation seriously,” said Indonesian Teachers Association chairman Unifah Rosidi, blasting the regulation for its lax control of cigarette consumption “while our children have very [poor knowledge] on the dangers of smoking”.Separately, Indonesian Heart Foundation (YJI) chairman Esti Nurjadin said that the foundation had sent a letter urging President Joko Widodo to push for the revised regulation. She added that the YJI’s letter to the President also expressed appreciation for the 2020-2024 RPJMN, which promoted public health.Green Crescent Indonesia president Era Catur Prasetya underlined that regulatory policies on advertising, tobacco sponsorship, large pictographic warnings, pricing and underage sales bans  in many countries had proven effective in reducing tobacco consumption.“The PP revision is also important so the [public] has access to skills empowerment and smoking cessation programs,” he said.Representing the Alliance of Cigarette Victims at the webinar, Zainuddin, a survivor of laryngeal cancer from passive smoking, said that the revised regulation would help prevent “suffering” among young Indonesians.“Our request is simple. We don’t want the younger generations to suffer like we have. We don’t want more victims like us. […] Minister, you have a very large role to play in saving future generations,” he said.Topics : The Coordinating Human Development and Cultural Affairs Ministry has also asked the Health Ministry to review the regulations on online cigarette advertising and controlling the consumption of electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes), also known as vaping devices.The revised PP on addictive tobacco ingredients appears in the 2020-2024 National Medium-Term Development Plan (RPJMN), which includes a plan to completely ban cigarette advertisements, enlarge the health warning pictographs, strengthen smoking cessation services and reduce child smokers by 0.4 percent.“The slow revision process shows the government’s lack of awareness about the urgency of controlling high cigarette consumption in Indonesia. The Health Minister should immediately complete his homework,” said Tubagus Haryo Karbyanto of the National Commission on Tobacco Control (NCTC).Indonesian Society of Internal Medicine (PAPDI) chairman Sally Aman Nasution stressed that stronger control of tobacco consumption was even more urgent during the COVID-19 health emergency, given that smokers were more vulnerable to contracting the disease.  Several nationwide medical and health organizations have urged the Health Ministry to accelerate the revisions to Government Regulation (PP) No 109/2012 on the safety of addictive ingredients in tobacco products.The organizations said during a webinar on Monday that the draft revision that began in May 2018 should have been completed in a year, but that the drafting process seemed to have slowed down after eight interministerial meetings.In accordance with Presidential Decree No. 9/2018, the draft revision targets the pictographic health warnings on tobacco products.last_img read more

​UK foundation Wellcome Trust prices first euro bond

first_imgThe initial order book was seven-and-a-half times oversubscribed.Bank of America Merrill Lynch, JP Morgan and Morgan Stanley acted as joint lead managers of the issue.Wellcome spends more than £700m each year on its mission of improving human and animal health, largely through funding biomedical research and supporting education.The proceeds of the bond issue will be used for the trust’s research activities, allowing it to reinvest more of the returns from its investment portfolio.Returns on the trust’s investment portfolio have been 10% annualised over 10 and 20 years.Over the past five years, they have totalled 75%, with a positive return for each year.For the year to 30 September 2014, the portfolio delivered returns of 15.4%.This performance was made up of double-digit returns in each major asset class, and represents the third successive year of double-digit portfolio performance.The Wellcome Trust is currently rated Aaa (stable) by Moody’s and AAA (stable) by Standard & Poor’s, and said it was its policy to maintain these ratings.The trust initially issued bonds in sterling in 2006, the first UK charity to do so.Successive sterling bonds were issued in 2009 and 2014.Danny Truell, CIO at Wellcome Trust, said: “These bonds represent our inaugural issuance in euros, and we are delighted to be able to extend access to our strong balance sheet to a broader investor base.“We believe we are the first independent charity to issue long-term euro debt, and it is testament to the strength of our financial position that we have seen such strong demand for these bonds.”He added: “It has been our strategy to review market conditions regularly and to access the bond markets when circumstances are appropriate.“We are pleased to be able to include the euro bond market in this ongoing assessment of opportunities for the trust.” The Wellcome Trust – the UK’s largest charitable foundation, with an endowment of £18bn (€23.5bn) – has priced €400m worth of bonds with a maturity of 12 years, falling due in 2027.The issue – the trust’s first in euros – is priced at a spread over mid-swaps of 40 basis points. Wellcome said the final coupon of 1.125% was the lowest ever for an Aaa/AAA-rated corporate in the euro bond market.It is also the lowest ever coupon in the euro bond market for a corporate issuance with a tenor of more than 10 years.last_img read more

Halfwave scoops two inspection contracts with Woodside

first_imgOil and gas inspection services company Halfwave has won two new in-line inspection contracts from Australian energy giant Woodside.Halfwave said on Friday that Woodside would deploy the company’s ultra-wideband acoustic resonance technology during two new inspections scheduled for 2019.The awards have been made as part of a master services agreement (MSA) between the two companies.“Woodside is an early adopter of Halfwave’s ultra-wideband acoustic resonance technology (ART), which provides measurement capabilities beyond those of existing inspection technologies,” the company said.ART is an acoustic resonance measurement technology, a highly accurate inspection technique. The acoustic signals transmit readily through gas, so there is no need for a liquid coupling medium, and they penetrate internal coatings and surface deposits, such as wax within the pipe.The signal transmitters and receivers can stand off several inches from the pipe wall making ART pipeline pigs capable of negotiating pipelines with constrictions and internal diameter changes.The ART Scan is a non-contact, low friction, lightweight technology, and only the polyurethane is in contact with the pipe wall.The two operations are planned to be carried out in 2019 on the 20″x 54km Pluto Flowline and the 40″x 134km 1TL Trunkline.Woodside’s Pluto LNG processes gas from the offshore Pluto and Xena gas fields in Western Australia. Gas is piped through a 180 km trunkline to a single onshore LNG-processing train.Since beginning operations, Pluto’s average annualized capacity has increased from 4.3 mtpa to 4.7 mtpa.According to Woodside, planning continues for the expansion of Pluto LNG based on the acceleration of Pluto gas and the potential development of the Scarborough gas field via the Pluto LNG facility.last_img read more

Burundi Elections:Presidential vote proceeds despite violence

first_imgRiot policemen advance towards protesters during running battles in Burundi’s capital Bujumbura Burundians go to the polls today to vote for the president amid sporadic violence in parts of the capital Bujumbura.Gunfire and grenade blasts have been heard as President Pierre Nkurunziza seeks a third controversial term.Mr Nkurunziza is widely expected to win a third consecutive term despite international condemnation and thousands of people fleeing feared violence. According to reports by AFP, at least two people — a policeman and a civilian — were killed in a string of explosions and gunfire overnight Monday, with blasts and shootings heard as polls opened shortly after dawn in the capital Bujumbura, the epicentre of three months of anti-government protests. With the elections denounced by the opposition as a sham, the 51-year-old president — a former rebel, born-again Christian and football fanatic — is facing no serious competition.Anti-Nkurunziza protests have been violently repressed, leaving at least 100 dead since late April.Independent media has been shut down and many opponents have fled — joining an exodus of over 150,000 ordinary Burundians who fear their country may again be engulfed by widespread violence.center_img “Despite a facade of pluralism, this is an election with only one candidate, where Burundians already know the outcome,” said Thierry Vircoulon from the International Crisis Group, a think-tank that has warned the situation has all the ingredients to kick-start renewed civil war. Opposition and civil society groups have denounced Nkurunziza’s candidacy as unconstitutional and a violation of a peace deal that ended a dozen years of civil war and ethnic massacres in 2006.Around 3.8 million Burundians are eligible to vote.UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon urged calm, calling on all sides to “refrain from any acts of violence that could compromise the stability of Burundi and the region.”Critics fear a win by the incumbent will be a hollow victory, leaving him ruling over a deeply divided nation.last_img read more

The Chelsea striker admitted he is desperate to get his season up and running again, but watching the news and his own family’s health fears leaves him wondering. Loading… Chelsea players ­had their own group chat on Thursday about the latest Project Restart plans to resume the season. And Abraham said: “We are humans. We do have feelings as well. It’s tough. I’m watching Sky News every day, waiting for Boris Johnson to make an ­announcement. “We’re following what’s going on in the world and trying to see if it’s safe or not to go back to football.

MBB : Syracuse at Louisville breakdown

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ SU has lost six in a row against Louisville. Just saying. SMALL FORWARDKris Joseph vs. Chris SmithNot really a matchup here, as Louisville tends to go with a four-guard lineup. Still, Smith is the Triche-like X-factor. He exploded for huge scoring nights at Villanova and Providence. But did little at Connecticut and Georgetown. But this year he has become a threat from 3, shooting 44 percent, and that could worry SU. STAT TO KNOWLouisville averages 9.4 steals per game, good for tops in the Big East and fifth in the nation. POWER FORWARDRick Jackson vs. Kyle KuricAgain, not a matchup in the traditional sense. Jackson is coming off his worst outing of the year, and it will be interesting to see if he can body with Terrence Jennings in order to have his usual field day. Kuric, on the other hand, is coming off his best outing of the year. A 28-point performance that trumps Jackson’s best scoring output by seven-points. If he keeps it up, SU will be in serious trouble. Beat writer predictionsTony OliveroLouisville 74, Syracuse 68In the second straight game where SU will faced an undersized team — much undersized – the quickness of a Pitino coached team will excel Against Georgetown, SU gave up the rebounding advantage. And versus a program famous for exploiting the Boeheim zone, SU won’t have enough.  Big number: 63.2The shooting percentage fro the field (24-for-38) for Louisville’s Kyle Kuric over the last four games. In that same span, he is 12-of-21 (57.1 percent) on 3-pointers. Last season against the Orange, Kuric had 22 points on 9-of-11 shooting. Comments FREE THROWS• Syracuse hasn’t beaten Louisville since Feb. 18, 2006 in the Carrier Dome. In that game, current graduate assistant Gerry McNamara had 30 points in a 79-66 SU win.• Louisville has eight players averaging at least 6.3 points per game.center_img SHOOTING GUARDAdvertisementThis is placeholder textBrandon Triche vs. Preston KnowlesFor the second straight game, SU will be going up against a much smaller opponent from the 2-guard spot to center. Still, just like the Georgetown game, the Cardinals will have the advantage here in Knowles. The strong under-sized guard will slash to draw fouls. Once at the line, he will convert at a top-rate clip. If SU’s zone can prevent that, its chances will be bolstered. POINT GUARDScoop Jardine vs. Peyton SivaSiva has the talent and the speed to be a sophomore stud. The native of Seattle has been featured in Sportscenter’s top plays already this year. But if the heady-Jardine surfaces, the frenetic Siva could direct the Cards into a loss. That’s a big if. Brett LoGiuratoLouisville 78, Syracuse 69Louisville isn’t exactly on fire as a whole, but the guy who burned Syracuse last year is.

JohnLouisville 76, SU 71 Published on February 11, 2011 at 12:00 pm CENTERFab Melo vs. Terrence JenningsJennings gets the clear edge here. In practice, Melo showcases extreme athletic ability for a 7-footer, something that will become a scary player in two years. But against the one team and coach Melo would have gone to over SU, he and Baye Moussa Keita will be facing a freak-athlete who has harnessed athletic ability with his football-body.

Emily Hawryschuk and Megan Carney look forward after 9 combined goals against Northwestern

first_imgEVANSTON, Il.— A teary-eyed Megan Carney was stoic almost 30 minutes after her first collegiate season ended in defeat. During the press conference, she reasoned why her offense didn’t show up for the first 30 minutes.But midway through, a smile appeared on her face. Syracuse head coach Gary Gait didn’t want to look at Saturday’s game. He wanted to look forward, more specifically at the two players to his left at the podium.“We were young, super young team,” Gait said, motioning to Carney and junior Emily Hawryschuk. “We’ll come back with a team that has an incredible amount of experience of winning.”In No. 5 seed Syracuse’s (16-5, 5-2 Atlantic Coast) 18-14 loss to No. 4 seed Northwestern (16-4, 5-1 Big Ten) on Saturday, Hawryschuk and Carney combined for nine of the Orange’s 14 goals. In fact, only one goal scorer from today— Natalie Wallon — won’t return in 2020. As SU tried to mount a comeback against the Wildcats, it didn’t rely on upperclassmen like Nicole Levy and Julie Cross, who had been to a final four before. It relied on a group of players, who a week ago had never won an NCAA tournament game.“That’s what we had to manufacture from the previous year,” Gait said. “I think that’s going to be important.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textFor Hawryschuk, postseason success had eluded her despite her goal-scoring numbers. In 2018, where the then-sophomore led the Orange with 53 goals, Syracuse lost in the first round of the ACC and NCAA tournament. When Hawryschuk was a freshman, Riley Donahue took the final shots for Syracuse. Last year, Levy was the more-experienced attack.This season, Hawryschuk’s been the catalyst. She scored the clinching goal in overtime against Northwestern in February, and on Saturday, she broke through an on-and-off face-guard from NU defender Nell Copeland. Instead of disappearing off personalized defenses like top opposing stars this season, Hawryschuk has found a way to average 3.57 goals a game.“She’s been shut out, face-guarded multiple times like today and she still comes out with five goals,” Gait said after Saturday’s game.In the midst of the Orange’s potential comeback, she took a draw — Hawryschuk had 10 draw controls on Saturday — switched sticks and ran around the eight-meter to play off-ball. Because of the face-guard, most of her driving lanes were limited, but occasionally she beat Copeland.“It shows that she refuses to be denied,” Gait said. “She’s one of the few players in the country that hasn’t been shut out before.”When Hawryschuk couldn’t find space — specifically in the first half — she deferred to Carney. As Northwestern jumped to a 3-0 lead in the first five minutes, Carney scored the first two goals for the Orange. Scores off a feed and a free position kept SU close in the opening minutes until the Wildcats dominated possession. Comments Published on May 18, 2019 at 11:13 pm Contact KJ: kjedelma@syr.edu | @KJEdelman Facebook Twitter Google+ Corey Henry | Photo EditorAgainst NU on Feb. 24, Syracuse was down 14-13 with under 30 seconds left. From midfield, Carney shifted right and jumped toward the crease to score the equalizer. Her late score made Hawryschuk’s game-winner possible.“(Carney’s) a good player because she has that IQ,” Levy said earlier this season. “So she dodges with her head up so she’ll get the assist, but when she scores her goals, it’s because she’s getting herself in the right position.”Remnants of her nine-point game against Virginia — tied for the fourth-most in program history — showed up early on Saturday. And after a lightning delay, when Northwestern had game planned for both Carney and Hawryschuk, fellow freshman Meaghan Tyrrell scored a pair out of the break, and another with eight minutes left.With SU’s top three scorers returning next year, the Orange may find themselves in a similar position again. And Syracuse will have their same top players for a chance at a final four.“We’re not going to be the underdog,” Gait said. “Teams are going to be ready for us. We’re going to develop the ability to finish games and win the big ones.”last_img read more
