State-owned INTI pays salaries in installments amid financial trouble

first_imgState-owned telecommunication company PT Industri Telekomunikasi Indonesia Persero (INTI) is paying its workers’ salaries in installments on the grounds of financial constraints faced by the company.The company has been partially delaying salary payouts since May last year. As of August this year, the company has paid the installment of Rp 1 million (US$67.28) for the delayed February salary. The scheme was part of efforts taken by the company to pay employees’ salaries in accordance with the company’s financial capabilities, INTI president director Otong Iip said. Salaries would continue to be paid out in installments until at least the end of the year.“This situation is caused by the company’s negative operating cash flow and equity,” he said in a statement on Thursday.Read also: SOEs in dark over fundraising despite government guaranteesHundreds of employees had protested in front of the INTI office in Bandung on Aug. 29, demanding information regarding the delayed salary from the company, which has 450 employees.  INTI has faced a declining financial situation since 2014. “One of the factors is past projects that have caused huge losses. The [financial pressure] continued until the company’s nonproductive debt reached 90 percent,” Otong explained.The management started transforming the business, finances, human resources and management by the end of 2019. They also performed debt restructuring and asset optimization following the company’s declining financial performance.“We are also supported by INTI’s entrance to the telecommunication industry cluster, so the company has a clear direction in business by focusing on Telkom Group customers,” Otong added.

Dutch children could have three or more parents

first_imgAFP 24 Oct 2012Dutch kids may soon be able to have three or more mothers or fathers after the government said it was seeking to enshrine parenting rights for the Netherlands’ 25,000 children in gay families.“The justice ministry is going to investigate and see what the possibilities are for recognising three parents or more per family,” ministry spokesman Wiebe Alkema told AFP on Wednesday.The left-wing Green party, but also the Liberal VVD and the Labour PvdA parties that won last month’s parliamentary election, requested the report with a view to amending a lesbian parenting bill currently before parliament.The Netherlands was the first country to legalise gay marriage in 2001 and when a gay or lesbian couple has a child, another parent is by biological necessity involved.But, said Green MP Liesbeth van Tongeren, it is also essential to recognise the rights of non-biological parents, including step-parents.“Currently parenthood in the eyes of the law is almost always the consequence of biological parenthood,” her party said in a statement, stressing that “this does not represent the diversity of families in the Netherlands.”“Often enough, the father of a child with lesbian parents also plays a role in the life of the child,” she said.http://www.afp.com/en/node/616941last_img read more

Munster and Ireland full-back Felix Jones retires

first_imgMunster and Ireland full-back Felix Jones has been forced to retire aged just 28 after a neck injury. Munster confirmed Jones was advised to retire from the sport after a neck problem suffered in the 23-21 Pro12 clash win over Glasgow Warriors on October 2. Jones made 90 Munster appearances and won 13 Ireland caps, missing the final selection cut ahead of the World Cup. Press Association “It is still unthinkable to believe I will never play another game of rugby,” said Jones. “I’ve always had one driving purpose in my life and that was to play rugby. “I’m grateful I could do that in Munster. “That feeling of walking out in front of a packed Thomond Park is something I will never forget. “To accept I will not play with my team-mates again is beyond upsetting. “The guidance I have received from the medical teams in Munster and Ireland has been unfaltering.” Head coach Anthony Foley paid tribute to Jones for his “immense contribution” at Munster. “We are all hugely disappointed for Felix,” said Foley. “He was a leading example in the way he applied himself through his commitment, work-rate and attention to detail. “For a player to come in, embody everything that is Munster and have such a presence within the group, he will be sorely missed on and off the field. “We are very grateful for Felix’s immense contribution over the last six years and wish him all the best for the future.” last_img read more

Wisconsin track to compete in Iowa Open

first_imgOn the heels of the announcement that their coach Ed Nuttycombe will be inducted into the Madison Sports Hall of Fame, a group of Badgers will be heading to Iowa City, Iowa to compete in the Iowa Open on Saturday, April 19. The news of their coach’s induction into the Hall of Fame as a member of the 2008 class is just the latest in a plethora of good news from the runners, jumpers and throwers of the team.“We had a lot of good marks this past weekend, (and we) qualified a lot of guys for regionals,” junior Brennan Boettcher — a runner, long jumper and javelin thrower — said of the team’s recent successes. “We’ve had a lot of good marks in only a couple meets so far, so we’re kind of looking forward to the next meets.”At the recent meet in Auburn for the Tiger Track Classic on April 4, Wisconsin tracksters also met success. In the 800-meter race particularly, the Badgers succeeded, with freshman Zach Beth taking third place, senior Eric Hatchell taking sixth, freshman Luke Rucks taking seventh, junior Steve Ludwig taking eighth and senior Joe Pierre finishing 10th. Badger sophomore Pat Nichols tied in second for the high jump, and sophomore Nate Larkin took eighth place in the 110-meter hurdles.The Badgers’ next round of success came at the Sea Ray Relays the next week, when senior pole vaulter Derek Thiel tied for first place in his event, clearing the bar at 16 feet, 6.75 inches. That mark qualified Thiel for regional championship competition. Also, Wisconsin won the 4×110-meter shuttle hurdle relay under the power of Peter Dykstra, Adam Pischke, Boettcher and Larkin. James Groce and Chas Demers, 400-meter racer and 200-meter racer respectively, also achieved regional times in their events.After all this success, the Badgers are looking to move into the meet in Iowa and continue the momentum they’ve had lately while continuing to prepare for the middle part of the season.“(The Iowa Open) is a good meet particularly for the type of meet we need for this weekend,” Nuttycombe said. “We’ve been to two big meets at Auburn and Tennessee, and then the following week we go to the Drake Relays, which is a huge meet in Iowa. So, it’s a lower-key setting where a lot of guys can get a lot of good work in.”The Iowa Open focuses mostly on sprint races and field work. According to Nuttycombe, roughly three-quarters of the team will make the trip to compete.Though the team is coming off a wildly successful indoor season in which they won the Big Ten Championships, everyone is bearing down for this outdoor season. The Iowa meet will be used as a competition to hone skills and train for larger meets down the road, ultimately working toward the Big Ten Championship, something that all Wisconsin tracksters know is not won lightly.“You’ve got to approach the indoors and outdoors as two separate seasons,” Larkin said. “You’ve got to start fresh. Everyone is pretty excited to get after it.”Though the team has mentally moved on, it has been difficult to physically accept there is a separation in the seasons with such little time between the two. That is also coupled with the fact that a large number of practices have still been held in the Shell.“It’s kind of depressing to know that indoors has been done for five weeks now, and you’re still training indoors and running all of your intervals on an indoors track,” Boettcher said with a smile.The Badgers will be facing about eight teams, most from the Midwest region, at the Open.  Though most of the runners will consider it a training meet, the competition will not be easy. Both Larkin and Boettcher expressed their desire to achieve regional marks in their events. Ultimately, the meet will be another stepping stone for a young team climbing the Big Ten and national rankings.“The glow of the (indoor championship) has kind of worn off, and we’re trying to work and prepare to try to do it again outdoors,” Nuttycombe said.last_img read more
