The controversial claim was made by Presidential Chief of Staff Moeldoko following a meeting with Central Java Governor Ganjar Pranowo in Semarang on Thursday.Moeldoko conveyed his skepticism regarding the number of fatalities declared to have been caused by or linked to the coronavirus disease, claiming that a “redefinition” should be in order to avoid loopholes that could be exploited to the benefit of certain parties.“Not all deaths are caused by COVID-19,” he said. “This needs to be clarified. Don’t let this benefit those who seek profit from the [medical] definition.”Ganjar supported Moeldoko’s claim, saying that false COVID-19 diagnoses had been made in Central Java.“Such a thing has happened in Central Java. There were people diagnosed for COVID-19 and then died before their test results came back,” he said.“It turned out that their test results came back negative. It was unfortunate, […] we need to address this issue.” (rfa) Furthermore, the bold claim, as it was not supported by any data or evidence, could help create a misleading narrative that cast hospitals in an unfavorable light, he added.Instead of making tone-deaf statements, Kuntjoro encouraged the government to make constructive criticism and to bolster its support of hospitals.“PERSI […] is open to collaboration with other stakeholders to improve the healthcare system, including COVID-19 treatment,” he said.Read also: COVID-19 deaths ‘redefinition’ prompts pushback – National Topics : The Indonesian Hospital Association (PERSI) has expressed dismay over the government’s suggestion that some health facilities across the country had used COVID-19 diagnoses for profit, noting that it would only further erode public trust in the country’s healthcare system amid the ongoing coronavirus crisis.PERSI chairman Kuntjoro Adi Purjanto said such a statement could only serve to stigmatize health workers’ sincere efforts to treat coronavirus patients and prevent further deaths as the pandemic continues unabated.“[The claim] could massively influence public trust in hospitals and betray health workers’ unwavering dedication,” he said in a written statement issued on Sunday, as quoted by kompas.com.

That was the dual Grade One winner’s first run since the Punchestown Gold Cup in April and Murphy would not mind running Quito De La Roque if conditions were suitable. “If the rain comes he’ll probably run. He seems good after his spill the last day. He seems fine and we’re happy with him,” said Murphy.

It was another improved performance from Lionel Scaloni’s team who have grown into this tournament since beginning with a 2-0 defeat to Colombia and a 1-1 draw with Paraguay.They are bidding to end a 26-year wait for a major international trophy.“We’re Argentina and when there are knock-out matches, it makes us strong,” said Sergio Aguero, who had a hand in both goals.“It won’t be easy in any way (against Brazil) but we’re Argentina and we’ll try to do justice to the jersey.”– Fast start –Argentina started like a team determined to claim the prize at stake: a semi-final against their great rivals Brazil.Martinez played in Aguero in the inside right channel after just three minutes but the Manchester City forward’s low cross-shot was blocked by goalkeeper Farinez’s foot.Argentina should have gone in front when German Pezzella ran unmarked onto a flick-on at the back post but he seemed surprised and couldn’t react in time with the goal gaping.There was constant pressure on the Venezuelan backline as Argentina won a succession of corners.They had 80 percent of possession in the first 10 minutes and sure enough, Venezuela cracked.Aguero’s angled shot was heading well off target as it skidded into a crowd of players, but Martinez instinctively flicked it between his legs, nutmegging an unsighted Farinez.It was the least Argentina deserved after such a furious start but gradually Venezuela started to settle and get a foothold in the match.“We struggled to get a foothold in the match and by the time we got going, we were already behind and facing an uphill battle,” complained Venezuela coach Rafael Dudamel.“Undoubtedly when looking back (on the tournament) we’ll have a lot more positives than negatives,” he added.Chances were few and far between but Pezzella got up well to meet a Lionel Messi free-kick, only to head well over the top.Defenders were proving the most dangerous players on the pitch and Jhon Chancellor rose highest to head over from a corner at the other end.In first half injury time, Martinez almost had a second put on a plate for him by Marcus Acuna, but Roberto Rosales whisked it off his toe at the back post, four yards from goal as Argentina finished the half with another burst of attacking intent.– Farinez blunder –Argentina made another fast start to the second half with Farinez having to punch away a wicked inswinging free-kick from Leandro Paredes, whose slide-rule pass then sent Martinez scampering into the box only to lash his shot against the outside of the post.Aguero bundled through a number of flimsy challenges but overran the ball and Farinez gathered.In Darwin Machis, Venezuela had a left winger with the beating of his marker Juan Foyth but the ‘Vinotinto’ (‘Red wine’) were unable to get him into the game.And when they did, Foyth twice got away with robust challenges on the speedy forward inside the box.The chance Venezuela had been waiting for came on 71 minutes when Tomas Rincon picked out Ronald Hernandez eight yards from goal at an angle, but he rushed his pushed volley and goalkeeper Franco Armani made a smart save.The game was up three minutes later when Farinez spilled a shot from Aguero that was straight at him, presenting Lo Celso, who had cleverly followed the action from midfield, with a simple tap-in just six minutes after entering the fray.Even as Venezuela pushed desperately looking for something, Argentina came closer to scoring again a couple of times through substitute Angel Di Maria, earning his 100th cap.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Lautaro Martinez celebrates scoring the opening goal that set Argentina on their way to a quarter-final victory over Venezuela © AFP / Carl DE SOUZARIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil, Jun 28 – Argentina set up a mouth-watering Copa America semi-final against hosts Brazil as goals from Lautaro Martinez and Giovani Lo Celso secured a 2-0 quarter-final victory over Venezuela on Friday.Martinez gave Argentina a 10th minute lead with a clever back flick between his legs and substitute Lo Celso secured the victory 16 minutes from time, pouncing on a mistake by Venezuela’s goalkeeper Wuilker Farinez at Rio de Janeiro’s Maracana stadium.
18 July 2013Brand South Africa staff and suppliers joined people from across the world in celebrating Nelson Mandela International Day on Thursday by bringing gifts and cheer to children at the Ebenezer Hannah Home in Walkerville, south of Johannesburg.South Africans, and people from around the world, were asked to set aside 67 minutes on Mandela Day to give back by making a positive social change in the communities where they live – to donate their time and resources to make it a day to remember for those who are less fortunate.Brand South Africa and its supplier companies went beyond 67 minutes on Thursday, spending the whole day with the children at the home.Apart from giving out various presents of toys, educational items and shoes, those present made it a day to cherish by playing with the children – some helping them with reading, others with singing, and others by turning up the music and dancing with the children.The Ebenezer Hannah Home is an NGO catering for the orphaned, elderly and destitute. It caters for people in the informal settlements of Thula Mtwana, Sweet Waters, Bheka Phambili and Majazane in the deep south of Johannesburg.Established in 1992, the home is run by founders Thomas and Shirley Merime, whose life story is the stuff movies are made off.The couple both grew up in orphanages as Thomas’s parents abandoned him, while Shirley’s mother died of cancer. After roaming the streets, Shirley ended up at the Roman Catholic Orphanage in Pofadder in the Northern Cape, where she met Thomas.Shirley, a qualified teacher and Thomas, a building contractor, married and had children years later after settling in Eldorado Park in the south of Johannesburg, but their struggle continued.Thomas had a violent streak and would victimise his family, which led to the couple divorcing and Shirley taking the children with her. Thomas said: “I lost everything and nobody wanted anything to do with me. I was in the gutter.”But Shirley said she never stopped praying for the man she had met as a 10-year-old at the orphanage, and this led to the down-and-out Thomas becoming a pastor.He said: “I not only got my family back, but also everything else I had lost and much more. Look at the size of my family at the moment.”Brand South Africa has been involved with the Ebenezer Hannah Home for a few years now, having helped repaint parts of the old age home on Mandela Day in 2012, and donating R20 000 to the institution on Mandela Day in 2011.Source: Play Your Part
Your competitor might have a better product or a better price. You might believe that gives them a competitive advantage, but it doesn’t have to. You can tilt the playing field in your direction. Work Ethic: You can outwork your competitor. Honestly, it isn’t really going to be all that difficult to do. Most people do what is required of them, not what they need to do to succeed. Your commitment to out-hustle your fiercest competitors alone is enough for you to win. Do the work they won’t do. Do that work when they are sleeping.People Skills: A person with better people skills can develop the relationships that level the playing field—and level their competitors. The ability to connect, the fact that you are likeable, and the fact that you care can create a preference. All things being equal, being good with people is a serious advantage.Business Acumen: A better student of business makes a better salesperson. By educating yourself on your business, your client’s business, and the economy more generally, you are likely to know how to create greater economic outcomes. Greater business knowledge and experience is a competitive advantage.Trustworthiness: Following up on your commitments creates a sense of trust. So does knowing what you are talking about. Being client-focused and working as if you are already part of your client’s decision-making team creates a gap between you and any competitor that doesn’t generate the same level of trust.Patient Persistence: The willingness to stay the course long after it seems a lost cause levels the playing field, especially when it comes to winning your dream clients. There is a strong advantage in outlasting your competitors. Patient persistence doesn’t mean you hang back. It means you keep taking action over time and, eventually, you win.Better Sales Skills: Knowing how to sell will never hurt you. Sales acumen is still incredibly important in creating a competitive advantage. Winning by intention instead of through a series of happy accidents is what separates the professionals for the amateurs, and it can tip the balance in your favor in a contest.Desire to Win: There is no accounting for the desire to win. It is the kind of intangible that appears to be some kind of voodoo. There is something about heart, guts, and the will to win that gives someone who is fighting above their weight class an advantage in a contest. Essential Reading!

Eleven-year-old Thomas was mortally afraid of water. Not unusual for children of his age. Then one fine morning at the Bangalore City Corporation pool, he fought his fear-and won. As he splashed about, it was obvious that this was a big accomplishment. Bigger still because Thomas has cerebral palsy. And,Eleven-year-old Thomas was mortally afraid of water. Not unusual for children of his age. Then one fine morning at the Bangalore City Corporation pool, he fought his fear-and won. As he splashed about, it was obvious that this was a big accomplishment. Bigger still because Thomas has cerebral palsy. And because he was accompanied by 44 children, who like him, are physically or mentally disadvantaged.Some suffer from cerebral palsy, a condition marked by weakness and impaired coordination of the limbs caused by damage to the brain before or during birth. Others have Down’s Syndrome, a congenital disorder due to a chromosome defect and characterised by diminished intelligence and physical abnormalities.But watching them in the pool, you wouldn’t know that. With every successful stroke, their sense of integration with the mainstream seems more complete, the smiles on their drenched faces fuller.In their midst is coach Raju Pujari, a product of the National Institute of Sports, Patiala. He looks at the splashing youngsters with pride, recalling how he first saw them a year ago at Sri Sajjan Rao Vidya Samsthe (SSRVS), a school for children with special needs. The sight tugged at his heart and he imagined taking them under his wing. That’s what he actually did, training them with the support of the neighbouring Basavanagudi Aquatic Centre (BAC), where he works.HOPE FLOATS: Pujari helps the children to improve their motor coordinationDevising a course suited for these 45 children was not easy. “In the beginning, we were not sure how to go about training these children,” says Pujari. “We had to slowly work on them and fight their fear of water.” But painstaking efforts by Pujari, other coaches and a host of volunteers eventually paid off.”Children who had no clue about hand and eye coordination began to show a marked improvement after being put into water,” says K. Shashikala, a teacher at SSRVS who has been trained to impart special education. A good example is that of 14-year-old Swathi Srinath who has Down’s Syndrome. Attending the intensive two-month programme at the centre seems to have done her wonders. Her father believes Swathi looks much more confident now.She’s not the only one. Rekha could not walk properly, but in the pool she splashes about happily. Pawan, who has cerebral palsy, is confined to a wheelchair, but he undergoes a transformation in the water, as does Raju, who swims with the inflatable tube that keeps him afloat. Says Pawan’s mother: “We wish we had done this earlier. His stiff limbs have loosened.”That’s not an exaggeration. Studies have proved the benefits of swimming for the mentally and physically challenged. Water is believed to relax the muscles while lending firm support to the body weight. There are neurological advantages as well, because sensation is more pronounced in water.The coaches follow exercises that are designed to enhance the range of motion and coordination, besides lung capacity, breath control and overall strength. As a result, children with cerebral palsy or other problems have greater freedom of movement in water than anywhere else.Prabhavati Chandra, whose 12-year old daughter with Down’s Syndrome has made considerable progress at the pool, is even striving for perfection. Though her daughter swims very well, her left arm does not have the same extension, amplitude, speed or power as her right arm, she feels. As a result, her strokes are a bit uneven, but she’s convinced that practice will correct this.Pujari is equally confident. “There is no handicap at all as far as I can see,” he says. “What these kids lacked was opportunity.” While showing them the way, the BAC has been especially sensitive to their special needs-that children with cerebral palsy and Down’s Syndrome are slow learners. Since flippers have proved beneficial abroad, BAC hopes to acquire some to help the children improve their speed and posture. That would allow them to focus better on their strokes.While self-enhancement and integration are the final goals, the coaches at the centre believe that they can be achieved only through patience and perseverance. That’s instilled in the minds of the students and their parents right at the outset. As Pujari points out, it’s one step at a time. Or perhaps a stroke in the right direction.advertisement
