first_imgHuman rights activists have lambasted the government for its lack of attention given to refugees as a vulnerable group during the COVID-19 outbreak.Roswita Kristy of the Jesuit Refugee Service Indonesia said refugees taking shelter in Indonesia were not included in the government’s COVID-19 response program.The government has provided barely any access to information regarding the outbreak for refugees, who instead rely on nongovernmental organizations (NGO) to translate information about the disease into their languages. “[Fortunately] Indonesians have been pioneering the act of inclusion. For example, people saving Rohingya refugees in Aceh in 2015 were not government officials, but fishermen who prioritized their sense of humanity,” said Rizka Argadianti of SUAKA, an organization focused on the protection of refugees’ rights.Somalian refugee Nimo Ali, also a speaker in the discussion, said refuges had not been neglecting the local community during the outbreak. Ali and her platform, Sisterhood, have been active in distributing staple food packages in her neighborhood during the outbreak.“We never forget our Indonesian neighbors who also experience hunger like us,” she said. “Sharing is caring. We show them respect and feeling after they give us peace and protection.”According to data from the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), there were at least 13,623 refugees registered in Indonesia as of January. (aly)Topics : “With community-based collaboration, the refugees can actually help and contribute to the fight against COVID-19,” Roswita said on Friday in a discussion commemorating this year’s World Refugee Day, which falls every June 20.Other speakers in the discussion said the government should follow the global trend of inclusion and issue better regulations to protect the refugees’ rights.Read also: Rohingya refugees rejected everywhere as countries grapple with COVID-19 concernsIndonesia’s current regulation regarding refugees, a 2016 presidential decree on the treatment of refugees from overseas, only stipulates administrative aspects rather than protections for refugees’ rights.last_img read more

first_imgOneNews 31 March 2015Paid Parental Leave increases by two weeks to 16 weeks from tomorrow.The entitlement will rise by another two weeks to 18 weeks from April 1 next year.That’ll put New Zealand parents on par with those in Australia who already get 18 weeks paid parental leave, and in line with the OECD average which is about 18 weeks.But Kiwi parents will still lag behind many in the developed world.Parents in Luxembourg and Portugal may take 20 weeks or more while prolonged periods of paid leave of around 100 weeks or more can be taken in Finland, Hungary, Norway, Poland and the Slovak Republic.However Kiwi parents are better off than their counterparts in in Greece, Korea and the Netherlands where parental leave is less than a week, while around a third of OECD countries do not provide any paternity leave.Meanwhile, the parental tax credit for lower-income families in New Zealand will rise from $150 a week to $220 a week from tomorrow. The entitlement for this credit will increase from eight weeks to 10 weeks.A Labour MP’s final bid to extend paid parental leave to six months was defeated last month after a three-year battle to get it over the line.Sue Moroney had sought to extend paid parental leave from 14 weeks to 26 weeks. But she amended the bill late last year to limit it to parents in special circumstances, after the Government indicated it would veto the bill on financial grounds even if it passed. read more

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Indian Premier League News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: Delhi Capitals needed 23 runs off 21 balls against Kings XI Punjab at the IS Bindra stadium in Mohali on Tuesday. However, Mohammed Shami took two crucial wickets to give Kings XI Punjab some hope. However, Sam Curran took a hat-trick and Delhi Capitals lost seven wickets in 17 balls as Kings XI Punjab won by 14 runs to occupy the second spot in the 2019 Indian Premier League points table behind Chennai Super Kings. Curran, who made a big impression in the Test series against England, was picked for Rs 7.2 crore in the IPL Auctions and his haul of 4/11 made the 20-year-old the youngest to take this haul. Speaking in the post-match presentation, Curran, who became the third Kings XI Punjab player to take a hat-trick and sixth overseas player, said he had no idea. “I didn’t really know (about the hat-trick). When we won the game, one of the players came up to me and said ‘you’ve got a hat-trick’. I had absolutely no idea I had taken one,” Curran said. The left-arm pacer and batsman said Mohammed Shami’s two wickets was a major factor in Delhi Capitals stumbling to a defeat. “My main focus was obviously that last ball when Rabada came and I knew his strengths and where I could bowl, so I was always aiming for his stumps and his toes. Ash (R Ashwin) told me what to do. Ryan Harris was standing at the third man region. Against the local batters, I had to ask our players, ‘Where does he hit?’. Shami got two amazing overs in the end which helped,” Curran said.  highlights Curran’s haul shattered Delhi Capitals, leaving the skipper Shreyas Iyer shell-shocked in the post-match presentation. “I am really speechless. It is a crucial match and losing such matches is not going to benefit us. We miscalculated the target. I think It was just a panic in between. They got two wickets in succession, (Chris) Morris and (Rishabh) Pant and there we lost the match. Our batsmen did not taking initiative to win the game. Our batting has been really dominant right from the start but we need to learn from this small things. We didn’t bowl that great to be honest, we got a bad start but we controlled in between and that is something we need to take forward. Looking at the quality we have, I think we shouldn’t be losing such matches,” Iyer said. Delhi Capitals will next take on Sunrisers Hyderabad at the Feroz Shah Kotla while Kings XI Punjab will take on Chennai Super Kings at the MA Chidambaram stadium on April 6. Delhi Capitals lost seven wickets in 17 balls for eight runs.Sam Curran became the sixth overseas bowler to take a hat-trick.Kings XI Punjab are currently in second spot in the IPL 2019 points table.last_img read more

first_imgThe Women of Troy (9-6, 4-1) return to the Galen Center to take on the Ducks (10-8, 2-4) tonight at 7 p.m.Following USC’s 47-43 victory over UCLA at the John Wooden Center on Saturday, the Women of Troy have a chance to continue their strong conference play and maintain their second-place standing behind Stanford (15-1, 6-0) and ahead of California (13-5, 4-2) in the Pac-12.Unstoppable· Junior guard Christina Marinacci scored eight points against UCLA. She also added seven rebounds, one block and one steal. – Luciano Nunez | Daily TrojanOregon will come to the Galen Center averaging the 16th most points in the nation with 76.3 points per game, led by guard/forward Jasmin Holliday. To dispel the Ducks’ offense, USC hopes to maintain its reliable 3-point shot and efficient fastbreak game.“We’re going to have to run them off the 3-point line and make them beat us with two’s,” senior guard Briana Gilbreath said. “We also have to limit our turnovers. Any team that likes to transition will take your turnovers and turn them into points.”On the other end, however, the Ducks give up 78.1 points per game. The Women of Troy hope to exploit a shaky defense that has allowed at least 80 points in three of their last four games.“We are a very difficult matchup for most teams because we shoot the ball very well and we have a lot of different sets,” USC associate head coach Laura Beeman said. “[We will] set some screens, move the ball around, let the ball find the open person and run right back at them.”One of the key members of the USC offense has been senior guard Ashley Corral, who became the No. 5 all-time assists leader for the Women of Troy in their win over the Bruins. She nearly notched a triple-double in a 10-point, eight-rebound and eight-assist effort.Corral’s emphasis on facilitating a balanced offense has encouraged a selfless mindset that the team has embraced.“We’re really good at finding who’s open and I think we’ve done a really good job this season sharing the basketball and getting everyone involved,” Corral said.The Women of Troy are 3-1 at home. Their last game at the Galen Center resulted in a 20-point thrashing over California on       Dec. 31. As for Oregon, they have yet to win a game on the road and have gone 4-8 after winning their first six games of the season.USC has plenty of momentum with its longest win streak of the season, but the Women of Troy are being careful not to place too much pride on their recent success.“We are where we should be, so it’s one step at a time, one game at a time,” Corral said. “I wouldn’t say we’re excited. We’re just looking forward to the future.”last_img read more
