The secretariat of the National Strategy for Corruption Prevention (Stranas-PK) has urged regional administrations to use citizen identification numbers (NIKs), which are assigned to every registered citizen, to guide the distribution of social aid.Stranas-PK secretariat coordinator, Herda Helmijaya, said his office had advocated for the use of NIKs to improve the Social Affairs Ministry’s Integrated Data on Social Welfare (DTKS) since last year. The accuracy of the data, he said, was important during the COVID-19 outbreak because the government was set to use the information to distribute about Rp 50 trillion (US$3.3 billion) in cash and food aid.“This is a complicated problem because the data is far from perfect,” Herda said during a discussion on Wednesday. “We’re working to integrate the NIKs with the DTKS […] to make sure the government’s social aid is distributed right on target.” The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) had previously issued a circular urging regional administrations to use NIKs to prevent the misallocation of aid through outdated social welfare data.KPK deputy head of prevention Pahala Nainggolan said regional authorities’ lack of urgency in updating their data on social assistance beneficiaries had resulted in misallocated aid.Read also: COVID-19 crisis exposes holes in social aid disbursementThe KPK has also asked regional authorities to distribute aid to unregistered citizens who meet government criteria to receive COVID-19 relief and to submit updated information to the Social Affairs Ministry. The new data set would be cross-referenced with the Home Ministry’s civil registry. Herda said regional administrations should refer to the circular on the distribution of aid to ensure it was carried out properly.Despite the KPK’s call to update the DTKS, Pahala said last month only 280 regional administrations had updated their social welfare data. According to law, regions should update the data four times a year.The Stranas-PK secretariat was established in 2018 after President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo signed the 2018 Presidential Regulation on the national strategy for corruption prevention. The strategy itself focuses on three sectors: business permits and the commerce sector; state finance; and law enforcement and bureaucratic reform.It includes officials from the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK), the National Development Planning Ministry and the Home Ministry and has a mandate to synchronize and monitor the implementation of antigraft strategy in various government institutions.Topics :

Granit Xhaka fired too close to Alisson from a well-worked corner, but the Brazilian international was fortunate when he rushed from his goal and was beaten to a floated cross by Henrikh Mkhitaryan, whose header drifted inches wide.However, Liverpool also had plenty of chances in a thrilling first half that somehow lacked only goals.A dubious offside decision denied Sadio Mane the opening goal and Virgil van Dijk twice should have scored when he was first repelled by Bernd Leno and then flicked a header against the post with the German ‘keeper caught flapping.Leno didn’t get so lucky with his next mistake as he palmed Mane’s dangerous cross back into the heart of the box and Milner drilled into the unguarded net.However, Leno made amends with a fingertip stop to again deny Van Dijk and Liverpool a crucial second following a towering header from a corner.And Emery’s decision to sacrifice Aubameyang rather than Lacazette with his substitutions was vindicated when the French international kept his composure to brilliantly curl into the far corner after being forced wide by Alisson.Both sides poured forward in a frantic finale, but Klopp’s decision to withdraw Mohamed Salah for Joel Matip in stoppage time showed the German was happy to protect Liverpool’s unbeaten league start.A return of five points from a possible nine from visits to Chelsea, Spurs and Arsenal is already a drastic improvement on Liverpool’s record of a single point from away games against top six opposition last season.Yet, even that upturn may not be enough to keep pace with a City side showing no let-up after romping to the title with 100 points.Share on: WhatsApp Main man LacazetteLondon, United Kingdom | AFP | Alexandre Lacazette extended Arsenal’s unbeaten run to 14 games and dealt a blow to Liverpool’s quest to win the Premier League for the first time in nearly three decades by salvaging a 1-1 draw at the Emirates on Saturday.James Milner’s opener just after the hour mark looked set to send Jurgen Klopp’s men three points clear of champions Manchester City, who host Southampton on Sunday, at the top of the table.However, that lead is now a solitary point as Lacazette struck eight minutes from time to give the hosts a well-deserved point from an enthralling encounter.After a baptism of fire in defeats to City and Chelsea in his first two matches as Arsenal’s first new manager for 22 years, Unai Emery has impressively put his stamp on the Gunners.However, in a run of 12 wins and a draw before Liverpool’s visit, Arsenal hadn’t faced any side that finished ahead of them in Arsene Wenger’s last season.In contrast to their last visit to the Emirates when they conceded three times in five minutes, Liverpool needed to show their new-found defensive resolve as a confident Arsenal started the brighter.Alisson Becker spread himself well to block from Lacazette before Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s deflected effort from the edge of the area flew just wide.
If you thought you smelled smoke in the air on Saturday, you were not imagining things, nor were you alone.Palm Beach County Fire Rescue’s Captain Albert Borroto issued a statement Saturday morning that it all originated in the Everglades.“There are no active brush fires currently in the county. This smell of smoke is coming from fires outside the county and it is being pushed in by the weather front that was predicted to move in this weekend,” Borroto said.Improvement is expected through mid-morning as daytime heating will increase the wind which will help the atmosphere mix and disperse the smoke more easily. pic.twitter.com/tcVq4TmxKj— NWS Miami (@NWSMiami) May 9, 2020 However, officials added that the weekend smoke was unrelated to several wildfires that have been burning in Florida’s Panhandle since last Monday.The Five Mile Swamp fire in Santa Rosa County burned through more than 2,000 acres and destroyed at least 17 homes, according to the Florida Forest Service.Rather, the reason for Saturday’s smoky air was due to the Moon Fish Wildfire that was discovered on Thursday at the southeast corner of Big Cypress National Preserve and close to the Everglades National Park boundary.According to a news release from Laurie Humphrey, Big Cypress’ lead park ranger, the fire was “human caused,” a truck fire. The person was cited, she said.By Friday evening, the Moon Fish Wildfire was covering about 12,181 acres, and was burning through sawgrass and cypress as aerial and ground crews tried to contain it.The National Weather Service also said smoke from fires in the Everglades could impact visibility over portions of South Florida during the early part of the weekend.
