Since being appointed defense minister in October, Prabowo has visited several countries in an effort to modernize the Indonesian Military and strengthen defense diplomacy in general.His latest destination was the United Arab Emirates, where he signed a defense cooperation agreement with his counterpart Mohammed Ahmed Al Bowardi on Feb. 24.The visits to various countries, including China, Russia, South Korea, Turkey, Germany and France, were meant to fulfill the Minimum Essential Force (MEF) provision by scouting for and procuring weapons systems from those countries.However, there is one notable omission from Prabowo’s world tour: the United States, despite its historical role as the country’s biggest supplier of military hardware.Prabowo, a retired three-star army general, has been barred from visiting the US because of alleged human rights abuses.

Pennsylvania Prepared as Winter Storm Set to Impact State Through Wednesday

first_img Press Release,  Weather Safety Harrisburg, PA – With a slow-moving winter storm expected to bring snow, sleet, ice accumulation and rain across the state lasting into Wednesday, Governor Tom Wolf today reminded Pennsylvanians that the state of emergency declaration he signed in January remains in effect to allow for increased assistance with storm-related needs.“I want all Pennsylvanians to be vigilant in traveling safely as winter weather again makes its way across Pennsylvania for much of this afternoon through early Wednesday,” Governor Wolf said. “The Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency (PEMA) has been in contact with state agencies involved in weather-related activities, including PennDOT and local emergency management agencies to make certain we are prepared.”“Pennsylvania is a large state, and storms like these affect regions throughout the commonwealth very differently from one another,” said Acting PEMA Director Randy Padfield. “We encourage everyone to stay tuned into their local news for important storm updates. In the meantime, PEMA is actively monitoring the storm in coordination with other state agencies and our partners in local government to help them meet any unmet needs that may arise.”Much of the state is under a winter weather advisory or warning. Accumulations vary, but many can expect to see 4 to 6 inches through Wednesday; the northernmost counties could get up to 8 inches and southwestern Pennsylvania will see the least amount of snow at less than 2 inches.Snow followed by ice, which could accumulate up to one-half inch in higher elevations and one-tenth to one-quarter of an inch across much of the state, is also forecast.PennDOT and the PA Turnpike are implementing phased restrictions through the storm. Depending on conditions, restrictions may be expanded or reduced. See a map of planned restrictions at When restrictions are in effect, see governor’s continuing emergency declaration authorizes state agencies to use all available resources and personnel, as necessary, to cope with the magnitude and severity of the storm’s impacts. The time-consuming bid and contract procedures, as well as other formalities normally prescribed by law, are waived for the duration of the proclamation.It is important to note that the declaration does not restrict citizens from travel on commonwealth roadways, but motorists should be aware of restrictions that are in place and heed the guidance of local authorities.To help make decisions regarding winter travel, motorists are encouraged to “Know Before You Go” by checking conditions on more than 40,000 roadway miles, including color-coded winter conditions on 2,900 miles, by visiting 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information and access to more than 860 traffic cameras. Users can also see plow truck statuses and travel alerts along a specific route using the “Check My Route” tool.511PA is also available through a smartphone application for iPhone and Android devices, by calling 5-1-1, or by following regional Twitter alerts accessible on the 511PA website.A vehicle emergency kit should be prepared or restocked with items such as non-perishable food, water, first-aid supplies, warm clothes, a blanket, cell phone charger and a small snow shovel. Motorists should tailor their kits to any specific needs that they or their families have such as baby supplies, extra medication and pet supplies.PEMA works with county emergency management personnel to monitor unmet local needs during inclement weather affecting travel, utilities, and shelter. You are encouraged to monitor state agency social media accounts for the most up-to-date information on any emergency or weather-related situation affecting the state, in addition to any social media accounts for your local emergency management offices.Motorists should be aware that all vehicles should be fully clear of ice and snow before winter travel. If snow or ice is dislodged or falls from a moving vehicle and strikes another vehicle or pedestrian causing death or serious bodily injury, the operator of that vehicle could receive a $200 to $1,000 fine.When winter weather occurs, PennDOT urges drivers to be extra cautious around operating snow-removal equipment. When encountering a plow truck, drivers should:Stay at least six car lengths behind an operating plow truck and remember that the main plow is wider than the truck.Be alert since plow trucks generally travel much more slowly than other traffic.When a plow truck is traveling toward you, move as far away from the center of the road as is safely possible, and remember that snow can obscure the actual snow plow width.Never try to pass or get between several trucks plowing side by side in a “plow train.” The weight of the snow thrown from the plow can quickly cause smaller vehicles to lose control, creating a hazard for nearby vehicles.Never travel next to a plow truck since there are blind spots where the operator can’t see, and they can occasionally be moved sideways when hitting drifts or heavy snowpack.Keep your lights on to help the operator better see your vehicle. Also remember that under Pennsylvania state law, vehicle lights must be on every time a vehicle’s wipers are on due to inclement weather.In addition to driving safely around plows, motorists are urged to drive according to conditions. If motorists encounter snow or ice-covered roads, they should slow down, increase their following distance and avoid distractions. Last winter in Pennsylvania, preliminary data shows that there were 440 crashes resulting in 221 injuries on snowy, slushy or ice-covered roadways where aggressive-driving behaviors such as speeding or making careless lane changes were factors.To report an accident or other emergencies on the PA Turnpike, dial *11 on your mobile phone. If there is an accident, move the car out of travel lane and onto shoulder, if possible, and stay in the vehicle.

Wolf said. “Let’s all do our part to be prepared and safe during this stretch of winter weather.” February 11, 2019 SHARE Email Facebook Twittercenter_img Pennsylvania Prepared as Winter Storm Set to Impact State Through Wednesdaylast_img read more

Caribbean to annually honour outstanding boxers -Ninvalle

first_imgTHE Anglophone Caribbean is pushing for recognition of its outstanding boxers on an annual basis through the presentation of awards. This was disclosed by Chairman of the Caribbean Boxing Steering Committee (CBSC) and vice- president of the Americas Boxing Confederation (ABC), Steve Ninvalle.Speaking with Chronicle Sport by telephone from Oslo, Norway where he is attending a meeting, Ninvalle informed that the CBSC has approved in principle for the hosting of the annual awards but the modalities are still to be worked out.“At the level of the Steering Committee we believe that recognition of athletes from their community is important. Rewards and recognition are both motivational tools that obviously will contribute to enhanced commitment and performance of boxers.“We feel that a show of regional appreciation is paramount and will form another pillar in the development of the sport in CARICOM,” Ninvalle declared.Acknowledgement will be given to boxers in all categories including Schoolboys and Juniors. Coaches will also be honoured when the award ceremony is held.  Ninvalle, also president of the Guyana Boxing Association (GBA) explained that the first ceremony is scheduled for 2020.“Our intention was to have our first Caribbean Boxing Awards this year but there is still much work to be done and at this point in time 2019 seems unlikely. However, you can rest assured that there will be Caribbean Best Boxer (male and female), Elite, Youth, Junior and Schoolboy by the end of 2020.According to Ninvalle, countries will be required to send in their nominees in each category with the requisite information relating to achievement during the calendar year. The same goes for coaches. The CBSC was formed last February with the mandate to chart and promote the development of boxing in the Region.It has a life of four years. Ninvalle was elected unopposed as was his vice-chairman Cecil Forde of Trinidad and Tobago, widely regarded as the Caribbean’s elder statesman.The four committee members elected are: Dr Debra Stephen-John of Grenada, Leyla Jackson of Cayman Islands, David `Shakes’ Christopher of St Lucia and Jose Rosario of US Virgin Islands. AIBA Three Star referee James Beckles of Trinidad and Tobago was nominated Special Adviser to the committee.last_img
