Kornelius Purba (The Jakarta Post) PREMIUM Jakarta ● Wed, June 29, 2022 Many Indonesians, including me, need to read the following quotation. Hopefully the remarks, which were made more than 2,000 years ago may help us shame ourselves for our outrage when Indonesian migrant workers are abused by their employers abroad, while we are actually often more brutal than those we condemn. “How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye’, when all the time there is a plank in your eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye,” this is from a very famous book quoting a very wise man describing how we humans are often genius in finding minor mistakes committed by others but not so smart when it comes to looking at our own misdeeds. Millions of migrant Indonesians risk their lives at the hands of overseas employers because at home they cannot find a better … [Read more...] about RI’s domestic workers more protected abroad than at home

Nur Janti (The Jakarta Post) PREMIUM Jakarta ● Wed, June 29 2022 Lawmakers have pressed ahead with a plan to create new provinces in resource-rich Papua after securing support from local elites, as politicians aim to pass a set of bills that will lay legal groundwork for the major redistricting before they go into recess early next month. On Tuesday, House of Representatives Commission II overseeing home affairs unanimously endorsed three bills to be passed into law at a House plenary session on Thursday. The bills will divide one of the two existing provinces in Papua into four new ones. The second, West Papua province, will be left as it is. In an apparent bid to fast track the deliberations smoothly, lawmakers recently invited some senior Papua administration officials – who also represented Governor Lukas Enembe – and representatives from the provincial-level legislative council (DPRP). They won their support for the plan. to Read Full Story SUBSCRIBE … [Read more...] about House presses ahead with Papua redistricting despite protests
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin During pregnancy, a mother’s body suppresses parts of the immune system to help tolerate the growing fetus. This means pregnant women are at an especially high risk of contracting disease, including Covid-19. The risk they face is two-fold: first, towards their own health, and second, towards the health of their unborn child. Still, not much is known about the impacts of SARS-CoV-2 infection during pregnancy. In a previous article , I summarized some of the key findings thus far. Since then, two new studies have been published, offering additional insights into the dangers of Covid-19 exposure during pregnancy. The first findings come from researchers at the University College London. Their work suggests that mothers who catch Covid-19 during their first trimester are more likely to have an early miscarriage. The second study , led by a group at Harvard Medical School, found that infants born to mothers who had Covid-19 … [Read more...] about Covid-19 During Pregnancy: Increased Risk Of Preterm Delivery And Infant Neurodevelopmental Issues
Running back Carlos Hyde #30 of the Seattle Seahawks rushes for a third quarter touchdown against the Washington Football Team at FedExField on December 20, 2020 in Landover, Maryland. Patrick Smith/Getty Images/AFP The Seattle Seahawks punched their NFL playoff ticket on Sunday, rushing for 181 yards and thwarting a late Washington rally in a 20-15 victory. Seattle is back in the postseason for the ninth time in 11 seasons under coach Pete Carroll. The Seahawks appeared to be cruising toward victory when they took a 20-3 lead early in the third quarter. Chris Carson, Carlos Hyde and quarterback Russell Wilson all topped 50 yards rushing. Hyde scored one of the Seahawks’ two touchdowns on a 50-yard run and Wilson connected with tight end Jacob Hollister on the other. But a turnover and a spell of offensive doldrums opened the door to Washington backup quarterback Dwayne Haskins, who engineered two fourth-quarter touchdown drives. Sacks by Seattle defenders L.J. … [Read more...] about Seahawks hold off Washington, clinch NFL playoff berth
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Jesse Redniss is CEO & Co-Founder of Qonsent , the first data privacy enablement and engagement platform built for consumers and brands. The race to comply with data privacy laws is top of mind for advertisers and marketers these days with things like clean rooms becoming a hot topic seemingly overnight. This is fallout from “the demise of third-party cookies and identifiers” and the data void they’re leaving behind. This means the third-party data they already have needs to be scrubbed clean to not only ensure that consumer data is private ( and protected ) but that it’s also the right data they should be tracking and leveraging for related campaigns. In other words, there’s no reason why a brand needs to have your Social Security number or other personal identifiable information ( PII ) on file, especially if you didn’t give direct, first-party consent for them to do so. And herein lies the … [Read more...] about Are Clean Rooms The Answer To Data Privacy And A Killer Customer Experience?
SOCIAL DISTANCING Residents queue to receive their second dose of AstraZeneca at a vaccination site inside a mall in Parañaque City. — RICHARD A. REYES MANILA, Philippines — The government will start vaccinating frontline workers on Monday. There are an estimated 35.5 million workers in the identified “essential” sectors. “There will be a ceremonial rollout of vaccination for the A4 group,” Health Secretary Francisco Duque III said on Sunday, using the designation for vaccine priority workers. “It is crucial that we already start vaccinating them as they are our economic front-liners,” he added. The official vaccination drive began on March 1 among health workers (A1), then the elderly (A2) and adults with existing illnesses (A3). Official figures showed 1.4 million out of the 1.55 million health workers have received at least their first dose.
