Tight quarters: COVID-19 threatens health, finances of Jakartans in public housing

first_imgThe banners urged all tenants to obey the government’s call to stay at home, wear masks at all times when outdoors and maintain safe distance from one another, although the latter suggestion elicited more than a few raised eyebrows and shrugs.More than 1,000 families occupy the densely populated 76 blocks of the complex, each containing a four-story apartment building.Parat said that the complex’s senior residents held regular meetings to discuss any latest developments that concerned the rusun. Rumor had it that the complex would be demolished and replaced with newer buildings, but the outbreak had put a damper on the plans.When the circumstances related to the COVID-19 outbreak became increasingly dire, gatherings were banned at the complex, the multipurpose hall was closed indefinitely and the tenants started communicating mainly via WhatsApp chat groups. A few days after President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo issued the order to stay, work and study at home in mid-March to curb the spread of COVID-19, residents of a low-cost apartment complex in Klender, East Jakarta, were busy racking their brains for a way to keep their homes virus-free.At the time, some of the residents of the rusun were already well-aware of the highly infectious disease, thanks in no small part to the unceasing news coverage on the topic.In anticipation of the virus’ possible emergence at Paguyuban Rusun Klender, the adult members of the tenants’ community asked Karang Taruna, a local youth organization, to install informational banners throughout the apartment complex, said member Parat Hutapea. As a member of the tenants alliance protesting the demolition plan, Parat was especially annoyed that the epidemic had disrupted the alliance’s activities. While more than 500 tenants had joined the cause, their activism now largely occurred in isolation behind the closed doors of individual apartment units.“We never hold meetings anymore,” the 73-year-old told The Jakarta Post on Wednesday.The tenants of the Tanah Abang rusun in Central Jakarta had a similar experience.The women of the apartment complex usually gathered in the complex’s yard for their thrice weekly aerobics sessions, but the fun workouts ran into a jam three weeks ago.“We also had to tell the women to maintain safe distance from each other when hanging up their laundry together [in the yard],” said Sumarno, the chairman of the Tanah Abang Apartment Tenants Association (PPRS).The Indonesian capital city, which is home to at least 10 million people, recorded 2,474 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and 242 deaths, according to the official government tally on Wednesday. As the epicenter of the Indonesian outbreak, these figures represent nearly half of the national tally of 5,136 confirmed cases and 469 deaths.The data does not indicate the actual spread of the disease, particularly as to whether it has reached densely populated residential high-rises like the rusun in Klender or Tanah Abang. Experts have warned, however, that people in densely populated communities and settlements are at higher risk of contracting SARS-CoV-2 – the virus that causes the disease – primarily due to the tightly packed living quarters and shared public amenities that are common features of such areas.Clara Siagian, a doctoral student at Australian National University’s (ANU) Crawford School of Public Policy, said that communal facilities meant that poor families living in the vertical buildings of low-cost apartment complexes were as vulnerable to contracting the disease as poor families that lived in kampungs.“Many low-cost apartments have shared facilities like elevators, canteens and multipurpose rooms, which increase the vulnerability to [viral transmission] within the [community],” she told the Post.Apartment management have reportedly stepped up efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19.The Jakarta Housing and Settlements Agency’s Meli Budiastuti, who heads the management unit of the Jati Rawasari and KS Tubun rusunawa (low-cost rental apartments) in Central Jakarta, said that the rusunawa management had issued a circular to all tenants detailing the measures it had adopted to prevent the spread of the disease.“Especially with regard to the use of elevators, [floor] stickers have been installed as a means to keep people at a safe distance from each other,” she said in the circular, a copy of which the Post recently obtained. “The management [disinfects] the shared facilities of the rusunawa and the [exterior] of the apartment units every weekend.” Ajra, who heads the Jakarta housing agency’s management unit for the Jatinegara Kaum and Pulo Jahe rusunawa in East Jakarta, said he had taken a similar approach.“Some residents even take part in the [disinfection], because they realized that the epidemic was a danger to [them],” he said.But the outbreak is affecting public housing tenants in more than one way: It has also negatively affected the already straitened finances of poor families struggling to make ends meet.According to data from the Jakarta housing agency, approximately 65,000 people representing 18,041 households live in rusunawa that are under city management. Around 83 percent of these tenants earn monthly incomes of less than Rp 4 million (US$254.50), while their monthly rent costs anywhere from Rp 100,000 to Rp 1.5 million.Clara, who is writing her doctoral thesis on evictees living in low-cost rental apartments in Jakarta, said that the outbreak had exacerbated these tenants’ inability to pay rent.In some cases, failing to pay rent on time could lead to a cut in water services in a city already lacking clean water supplies and distribution, she said. This meant that the problem became one of personal hygiene, the basic preventive measure against the virus.Clara suggested that the Jakarta administration could impose a moratorium on rent payments or subsidize electricity bills for low-income households, in addition to providing social assistance.“It is unfair to put the entire burden on the [Jakarta] building management. The city administration and the central government should ensure that the livelihoods of these people are secure. [Rusunawa] residents already have a sense of how large the COVID-19 crisis is, but few options are available to them to protect themselves,” she stressed.Ledy Natalia, who heads the housing agency’s regulation and community participation department, said that the city was currently discussing options to waive rent payments for the duration of the epidemic.Topics :last_img read more

Iseman: Despite recent struggles, Syracuse still contender in parity-filled NCAA landscape

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on March 1, 2013 at 10:32 am It’s natural to search for answers. Losses incite the need to find reasons and to insist a change is needed. Syracuse’s six losses, especially its last two, have created that type of swirling concern.You can search as much as you want, but in the end, a lot of it comes down to parity rarely seen before in college basketball. Syracuse has losses and flaws. So do top teams across the nation.Nothing’s normal in college basketball. The rankings are shuffled from week to week. Teams expected to sit at the top have slid up, down and out of the top 10. Teams that have had little to no shot at being ranked have upended top-five teams.Four different teams have spent time ranked No. 1. Indiana has spent 10 weeks in the top spot. The Hoosiers have three losses to unranked teams while playing as No. 1.Thirteen different teams have spent some portion of the season ranked in the top five in The Associated Press Top 25 poll. Of those 13, seven of them have at least three losses to unranked teams, and two of them have two losses to unranked teams. Miami, who shocked the nation and stormed up the rankings to as high as No. 2, got trounced by Wake Forest 80-65 last week.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe most recent shocking upset came just Wednesday, when Penn State, who was 0-14 in the Big Ten, upset No. 4 Michigan 84-78. That loss is far worse than any Syracuse has suffered, and yet the Wolverines sit eight spots ahead of the Orange in the rankings. Michigan made only five of its 20 3-point attempts, and let Nittany Lions guard Jermaine Marshall go off for 25 points, 18 of them coming on 3s.This season is completely unpredictable.Even though the Orange is coming off of back-to-back losses for the second time this season, there’s no reason to discount Syracuse’s ability to make a deep run in the NCAA Tournament. The same inconsistency that’s plagued SU has struck other top teams, as well.It’s the nature of the sport this year.There’s no denying the Orange’s losses came with some particularly bad shooting and defensive breakdowns. And without a dominant inside presence, Syracuse could be at a disadvantage.Syracuse has six losses, and four of them came to unranked teams. But none of the Orange’s losses came to particularly bad teams. The weakest Big East team Syracuse fell to is Villanova, and the Wildcats also upended Marquette and Connecticut, two teams the Orange lost to.Every single team is vulnerable this season. We all know Syracuse has flaws. The Orange isn’t a great shooting team and often struggles on the glass. SU’s been outrebounded in nine games this season, five of those being losses. Correct either of those issues and Syracuse becomes a near dominant team.But while Syracuse has its imperfections, so does every other team. And it’s shown by the incredible amount of upsets.There have been so many upsets this season, court-storming is starting to lose its significance.Having success in both the Big East and NCAA tournaments is all about getting hot at the right time. If Syracuse finishes the regular season strongly and carries momentum through the conference championship, making a deep run in the NCAA is a likely possibility.Any of the top-10 teams have a legitimate shot at winning the championship. Syracuse sits at No. 12 and should be in the conversation for Final Four contenders.“When you lose a game, it doesn’t necessarily mean you have to revamp everything,” SU head coach Jim Boeheim said after his team’s loss to Marquette. “We lost a game.”The panic that Syracuse is suddenly not capable of beating elite teams is an overreaction. This is a particularly difficult stretch in the Orange’s season where four of its final five games are against ranked teams, including two (Louisville and Georgetown) in the top 10.Teams up and down the top 10 are capable of a loss to a team outside of the top 25 at any point. Despite any of its six losses, Syracuse stands a chance to make a deep run, especially if it irons out its flaws in the next couple of weeks.Those flaws have cost the Orange at times this season. It’s no different than any other team in the country. Commentslast_img read more

Džeko: I’m finally going to play against Juventus

first_imgCaptain of national football team of B&H, Edin Džeko, is making preparation with the AS Roma for a derby in Serie A against Juventus, which is scheduled for Sunday, at 6 p.m.“It is interesting that I played against almost every great European club during my career, but I have never played against Juventus,” said Džeko for the Italian media.He emphasized that Juventus is a great rival of Roma and that the fact that they won 4 straight Scudettos speaks enough about their quality.“I finally get to face them. I hope that I will play well. I do respect Juventus, but we have to give our very best,” said Džeko.The Italian media were interested if Džeko can play in the same team with Totti, since they are playing on similar positions in the team?“Of course I can. He is a legend and a fantastic player and everyone can play with him. However, the final decision is up to the coach Rudi Garcia,” concluded Džeko. (Source: klix.ba)last_img read more

Messi on the bench as record-breaker Ansu Fati starts for Barcelona

first_imgDortmund, Germany | AFP |  Teenage star Ansu Fati became Barcelona’s youngest ever Champions League debutant after being named in the starting line-up for the Catalan giants’ campaign opener away to Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday.The 16-year-old, who became the club’s youngest ever scorer with his maiden strike against Osasuna last month, gets the nod ahead of Lionel Messi, who returns to the squad after several weeks out injured.At 16 years and 322 days, Fati is around two months younger than the previous record holder Bojan Krkic was when he made his Champions League debut in 2007.Should he score against Dortmund, the Guinea-Bissau talent would become the youngest player ever to score in the competition, overhauling a 22-year-old record held by former Olympiakos player Peter Ofori-Quaye.Messi, who has missed the beginning of the season with a calf injury, will start on the bench against Dortmund. Share on: WhatsApp Coach Ernesto Valverde said Monday that he would decide spontaneously whether or not to let Messi play.“He has trained two or three times and made a good impression. We will see,” said Valverde.Tuesday’s game marks the beginning of a gruelling Group F campaign for Barcelona and Dortmund, as they look to qualify ahead of Inter Milan and Slavia Prague.last_img read more

Get into golf and get active in Nottingham

first_img Golf is moving out of its traditional setting and into the parks and leisure centres of Nottingham this summer with free, informal sessions to attract new people to the game. Get into golf opportunities from England Golf are on offer as part of the city’s 2016 ParkLives programme which encourages people to make the most of their local park – and 120 have already taken part Weekly sessions are taking place in Wollaton Hall Gardens and Deer Park, Bulwell Hall Park and Woodthrope Grange Park over the coming months, with Family Fun activities during the school holidays. There are also follow on opportunities for people who want to keep on playing, with further Get into golf activity available in both the city and county. People attending major summer events, such as the Riverside Festival, will also have the chance to try golf in an informal setting. Golf was also offered to people trying new activities on the FREESport programme at Harvey Hadden Sports Village. The eight-week programme, which also included opportunities to try tennis and badminton, proved so popular that golf sessions are continuing there every Thursday from 10 till 12. Meanwhile, the ‘Nifty Fifties’ group at Portland Leisure Centre are also taking golf sessions. In addition, women’s groups are being invited to try golf as part of England Golf’s programme to show that #ThisGirlCan. A Girls Golf Rocks project, run jointly by England Golf and the Golf Foundation and supported by young county players, has also been launched to offer a fun and friendly introduction to girls. Both these initiatives are running right across Nottinghamshire. The Get into golf activity is all part of a project to test new ideas run by England Golf, the Nottinghamshire Golf Development Group and Nottingham City Council. It supports the city’s strategy to get more people physically active and it aims to banish out-dated perceptions about golf and remove barriers to playing. The activities promote the health and wellbeing benefits of golf and its social appeal. For example, in a 9-hole round a player will walk two to three miles, take over 5000 steps and burn over 450 calories. Claire Hodgson, England Golf’s Head of Participation, commented: “We are delighted to be working in partnership with Nottingham City Council and tapping into their local expertise and knowledge to help take golf into the city. “This is a fantastic opportunity for us to introduce golf to people who may not normally try it and promote golf in a non-traditional way to help break down some of the perceptions which are out there. We’ve had a great response so far and we’re looking forward to getting more people active through golf during the summer months.” The project presents a great chance for golf clubs in and around Nottingham to promote opportunities to new and returning golfers. Golf club staff and volunteers are welcome to attend sessions and get involved. Two newly appointed Get into golf Engagement Officers, Nyle Challinor and Jason Froggatt, are involved in the project, working closely with Nottinghamshire’s County Development Officers.  Get into golf is England Golf’s campaign to inspire people to take up golf and play more often.

Selects too hot to handle en route to Kootenay Zone Provincial berth

first_imgBy The Nelson Daily SportsWhat a “perfect” weekend for soccer . . . that’s if you’re a member of the Nelson U14 Selects.The Heritage City squad outscored the opposition 12-0 en route to capturing the Kootenay U14 Boy’s Zone Title Sunday afternoon at the Lakeside Pitch.The Selects edged Columbia Valley Titans 2-0 and Kootenay East Rovers of Cranbrook 3-0 before running away with the title Sunday, blasting Kootenay South 7-nil.The title was Nelson’s to lose after the home side knocked off the 2010 U13 Zone champs from Invermere in the tourney opener.Dunavan Morris-Janzen scored at the 12-minute mark in the tight contest to give Nelson all the goals it would need.Nolan Percival sealed the win with less than 15 minutes left in the second half as the Nelson striker was finally able to get behind the tough Columbia Valley defence.Nelson kept up the heady play in an evening encounter against Kootenay East, scoring early to capture the win.Micah May’s header gave Nelson the early advantage.May scored his second of the game converting a Spencer Szabo ball before splitting Kootenay East’s backline.Percival, with his second in as many games, converted a fine pass from Tucker Anderson to finish the scoring.Saturday’s two wins secured the gold medal for Nelson.However, the Selects were not quite finished filling the net, getting seven past rival Kootenay South.May again with the early marker just 45 seconds into the game got the home side off and running.Szabo scored on a penalty kick three minutes later after May was taken down in the box.
