first_imgThe Indonesian literature department of Padjadjaran University (Unpad) in Bandung, West Java started streaming lectures on Tuesday for Chinese students trapped in their home country due to the government’s travel ban to and from China.The government has imposed a travel restriction on air travel to and from China since Feb. 3 amid the COVID-19 outbreak – a disease caused by the novel coronavirus.“The travel ban hinders Chinese students from coming back to Unpad. Meanwhile, the university started the semester on Monday, “department head Lina Meilinawati said on Thursday as quoted by kompas.com. She added that 72 Chinese students were enrolled in the Indonesian for Foreign Language Speakers (BIPA) degree program.

first_img“Because children and parents are dying from that trauma too. They’re dying because they can’t do what they’re doing. Mothers can’t go to work because all of a sudden they have to stay home and watch their child, and fathers,” he said.Trump, who has been reluctant to embrace mandatory face masks ordered by many US governors to control the spread of COVID-19, also told CBS Americans should wear them “if necessary.”Against the backdrop of rising cases and deaths, US school districts have been confronted with a difficult choice of resuming classes or using only online teaching, which many parents have called ineffective and burdensome.School districts refusing to send children back to class in the fall, like those in California, are at odds with Trump, who has said he may withhold federal funds or remove tax-exempt status from schools that don’t open. It is not clear how funds could be withheld. Most primary and secondary school funding is local.The nation’s 98,000 public schools are a cornerstone of the economy, providing childcare for working parents, employing 8 million workers prior to the pandemic, and preparing some 50 million students to join the US workforce.Florida, New York allow return to schoolBoth Florida and New York state have said students will be allowed to return to school. New York is one of a handful of states where cases continue to fall and positive test rates are low – although it has seen by far the greatest number of deaths overall, at more than 32,000.North Carolina’s governor on Tuesday ordered schools to reopen if safety measures can be met, but said districts can opt for online learning only.The president’s comments came as Alabama, Florida and North Carolina on Tuesday reported record daily increases in deaths from COVID-19, marking grim new milestones of a second wave of infections surging across much of the United States.Florida, which has become an epicenter of the new outbreak, reported 133 new COVID-19 fatalities on Tuesday, raising its death toll to more than 4,500.”We must all continue to do our part to protect Florida’s most vulnerable and avoid the 3 Cs: closed spaces, crowded places and close-contact settings,” Governor Ron DeSantis wrote on Twitter. “Safeguarding the elderly and those with underlying health conditions will continue to be our top priority.”Mandi Hawke, who runs a small children’s book company from her home in Broward County near Fort Lauderdale, said she recently made her first trip to the local mall in months and was “horrified” by what she saw.”As bad as things are in south Florida, I feel they’re only going to get worse. We are not getting a grip on this,” said Hawke, 38.Alabama reported a record spike of 40 deaths on Tuesday and North Carolina an increase of 35, bringing each state’s total to over 1,100.Texas and California both reported record one-day increases in new cases. California said it had established a new mark for the current number of hospitalized patients suffering from COVID-19 at 2,103.US Vice President Mike Pence on Tuesday visited Louisiana, which reported nearly 13,000 new cases last week.The state’s attorney general, Jeff Landry, canceled a meeting with Pence after testing positive for the coronavirus. Landry said he had no symptoms and was taking medication prescribed by his doctor. Topics :center_img President Donald Trump on Tuesday lambasted California’s two largest school districts for making students learn from home for the upcoming term in the face of the resurgent coronavirus pandemic.The Republican president, in an interview with CBS News, said it was a mistake for the Los Angeles and San Diego school districts to provide only on-line education for the academic year beginning in August.”I would tell parents and teachers that you should find yourself a new person, whoever’s in charge of that decision, because it’s a terrible decision,” Trump said.last_img read more

first_imgThe pilot study aims to integrate quantified risks linked to climate change into standard forward-looking financial scenario sets that are behind strategic investment decision-making, the participants said.Investors involved in the work will use these data sets to analyse the effects of various possible global warming sequences on their asset liability management/strategic asset allocation.The pilot is expected to run until the end of 2018, and if successful, the “climate-savvy scenario set” is expected to be made more widely available to investors by early 2019, the participants said in their joint statement.Other firms taking part in the project include Cambridge Econometrics and Carbon Delta, while various research organisations and universities are also involved. Earlier this year Ortec Finance announced it had created a “strategic climate solutions” team.Meanwhile, Danish labour-market pension fund Sampension announced it has decided to adopt the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) guidelines, becoming the fifth Danish pension fund to do so.Hasse Jørgensen, Sampension’s chief executive, said: “We will use a measuring tool used by TCFD to calculate the carbon footprint (…) of our investment portfolios.”Knowledge and specific measurement methods for how the climate affected companies – and therefore the basis for Sampension’s investments – were a very useful way forward, he said, giving a better opportunity to determine and price financially-material risks related to climate impact. Several European pension funds, including Sweden’s AP1, are launching a project on climate change risks they say could help inform portfolio decisions in the future.Dutch pension funds PME, the €46.7bn metals scheme, and Philips Pensioenfonds, are also involved. Alongside Dutch insurer ASR, Canadian pensions manager OPTrust and financial technology firm Ortec Finance, the three pension funds – which have nearly €100bn in assets between them – described the work as a “cutting-edge research project to integrate climate change into strategic investment decisions”.Mikael Angberg, CIO at AP1, said: “Better knowledge of how climate change might affect risk and returns is crucial for our long term performance. “Participating in this climate study will not only deepen our understanding but also be an important input in articulating our climate strategy.”last_img read more

first_imgNorwich have completed the signing of striker Gary Hooper from Celtic. The 25-year-old, who scored 31 goals for the Scottish champions last season, becomes the Canaries’ seventh summer signing after he agreed personal terms and passed a medical at Carrow Road. Norwich manager Chris Hughton first tried to sign Hooper in January and the Barclays Premier League club fought off competition from QPR to finally land the prolific frontman. Hooper won two Scottish Premier League titles at Celtic, two Scottish FA Cups and he won the SPL Golden Boot in the 2011-12 season. Lennon said: “For me he has been one of my best signings in so many ways – value for money, the improvement in the player, his goals and his link-up play. “I think he’s been the best striker here since Henrik and he will be a huge loss to us. “He has aspirations to play for England and to play in the Premier League. I wish him well. Part of me wants to strangle him but you don’t want to stop the progression of some individuals. “Gary feels the next step forward to try and break into the England team is to play in the Premier League.” Hooper has signed a three-year deal with Norwich having an option on a further year. The fee was undisclosed. Hooper has been Celtic’s leading goalscorer for the last three seasons, having joined from Scunthorpe in 2010 for £2.4million. Celtic manager Neil Lennon described Hooper as the club’s best striker since Henrik Larsson and said his departure was a “huge loss” for the Bhoys. Hooper told the Norwich website, www.canaries.co.uk: “There’s been a lot of speculation going back to January and I’m pleased to have finally put pen to paper and joined Norwich. “I can’t wait to get down to work, to get training with the lads and working with the coaching staff. I knew Chris Hughton and Colin Calderwood from my youth days at Spurs so it will be great to be back working with them in the Premier League. “I have scored goals at every level I have played at and the challenge of playing in the Premier League is really exciting to me.” Hooper is the second striker recruited this summer by Hughton, following the record signing of Dutch international Ricky Van Wolfswinkel for £8.5million from Sporting Lisbon. Norwich have also signed Dutch midfielder Leroy Fer from FC Twente, Birmingham winger Nathan Redmond, left-backs Javier Garrido and Martin Olsson plus the goalkeeper Carlo Nash.

first_img Both clubs confirmed the deal on their respective websites on Wednesday evening and Atsu admitted he cannot wait to get started at Goodison. “I’m very happy to be joining Everton because it’s a great club which likes to play football, and it’s a great pleasure to be here,” he told evertontv. “Playing in the Premier League has always been a dream for me and I have achieved that dream. “This is the biggest level for me to play at. I know that it’s a very competitive league and I believe with hard work we’re going to be successful this season.” Atsu’s arrival will supplement the resources Martinez already has at his disposal, led by marquee summer signing Romelu Lukaku – also from Chelsea. Striker Arouna Kone is still at least a month away from fully recovering from a knee injury which kept him out for most of last season while Kevin Mirallas, like his Belgium team-mate Lukaku, is still getting up to speed having returned to training later than many of his team-mates due to his World Cup commitments. Steven Naismith is another alternative up front or off the right but Atsu will give Everton something extra in the same way Barcelona forward Gerard Deulofeu did in his loan spell last season. “He’s a player who fits in with the culture and the way we want to play,” said Martinez. Everton have announced the signing of winger Christian Atsu on a season-long loan from Chelsea. Manager Roberto Martinez had made no secret of the fact that a deal was imminent for the 22-year-old and he has now got his man after the Ghana international passed a medical on Wednesday night. Atsu has also been granted a work permit and will be available when the Toffees travel to Leicester for their Barclays Premier League opener on Saturday. “He’s a very gifted technical footballer and he’s got the right personality and character to fit in with the group, which is vital. “He will excite fans because he brings something completely different and a different way of playing to what we’ve got in the squad. “He’s a left-footed player who loves taking people on and he’s got a really good understanding of the game for such a young man. “He also brings extra competition in a position in which we felt we needed a player full of desire and hunger, who really wants to make things happen in the final third of the pitch.” Atsu is the fourth new arrival for Everton this season, following Lukaku, Gareth Barry and Muhamed Besic into Goodison. He joined Chelsea from Porto last summer and spent last season on loan at Vitesse Arnhem before starting all of Ghana’s World Cup games in Brazil this summer. Press Associationlast_img read more

first_imgMauricio Pochettino believes Erik Lamela faces a make-or-break season at Tottenham. The 23-year-old is the club’s record signing but has struggled to make an impact since moving to White Hart Lane in 2013. The Argentina international, who has been in and out of the team and scored just two Barclays Premier League goals last season, was rumoured to be close to leaving Spurs this summer. However, he remains a Tottenham player and showed his potential as he provided the slide-rule pass that led to Ryan Mason scoring a late winner at Sunderland on Sunday. The victory was the north London club’s first of the campaign and, with the Europa League getting under way with a home game against Azerbaijan champions Qarabag on Thursday night, Pochettino knows now is the time for Lamela to finally prove his worth. “We believe we can develop his game and I think we need to be patient with him,” the Tottenham head coach said of his compatriot. “It’s true, now is the third season here, but we believe in him and we want to give the opportunity to show his value. We have a lot of games to play, for competition, we need a good player in all positions. I think with the squad we have, we have a very good balance. “I think this is a key season for him. After two seasons at Tottenham, now is the moment for him. Not to put pressure, but it’s true. It’s a key moment for him to develop and to move on his game. It’s important.” Having first caught the eye in Europe during his time with Roma, Lamela has been known to Pochettino since he burst onto the scene at River Plate – drawing instant comparisons to other Argentinian stars. “Yes I knew him, it’s normal – in Argentina I have friends. “Lamela was young, long, blond hair and he made big impact. Always if there was going to appear a player in this style, left-footed, before he was the new (Diego) Maradona. “Now he’s the new (Lionel) Messi. It’s like this. All the people compare him with new Messi and it’s impossible to stop that.” Whether Lamela, who has 13 senior caps to his name, can ever replicate Maradona and Messi is unlikely but a strong season at White Hart Lane would show the fans he was worth the hefty investment two summers ago. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

first_imgNew Delhi: India all-rounder Hardik Pandya has joked that a cup of coffee proved too costly for him and he now drinks green tea instead in an Instagram live chat with wicket-keeper Dinesh Karthik. Pandya was referring to the controversy he landed in due to his comments on the television show Koffee With Karan in early 2019.“I don’t drink coffee, I drink green tea instead. I drank coffee only once and proved to be too expensive for me. I can bet that Starbucks would not have such an expensive coffee. Since then I stay away from coffee,” he said in the live chat which also featured his brother and fellow all-rounder Krunal.Pandya was caught in a maelstrom of controversy in early 2019 due to his remarks on the chat show in which he had appeared with teammate KL Rahul. It led to both being briefly suspended from the Indian team.Pandya has since got engaged and while his return to the Indian team has been hampered by injuries and the ongoing coronavirus lockdown, he is expected to play for the team at the T20 World Cup later in the year should it go through.He also said that he would be okay with the 2020 season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) being played behind closed doors. The season has been postponed after the Indian government extended the ongoing lockdown in the country to May 3 amid the coronavirus pandemic.“It will be different. We are used to playing in front of them as the feeling of competition comes with the crowd,” said Pandya in an Instagram live chat with Dinesh Karthik.“I’ve played in the Ranji Trophy without crowds, and it feels different. To be honest, if that [IPL behind closed doors] happens, it will be a smarter option. At least people will be entertained at home,” he said.
