Intentional privacy breach?: Govt considers releasing patients’ personal data

first_imgThe national COVID-19 task force is considering releasing patients’ personal data in an effort to encourage adherence to health protocols in affected areas. Task force chief and National Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPB) head Doni Monardo said such data would only be made available to people living in the patients’ neighborhoods.”Current regulations don’t allow authorities to publish patient data. But if this data could be known by people living in their neighborhoods, it could help the surrounding community prepare preventive actions,” Doni said during a meeting with House of Representatives Commission VIII overseeing social affairs on Monday, as quoted by kompas.com. He added that such data should be published for the sake of public safety. He also asked people to stop stigmatizing COVID-19 and condemned unjust treatment of people with the illness. The task force was also looking for other solutions to help protect people from the disease, Doni said.Read also: Human rights groups urge privacy protection in COVID-19 contact tracing effortsWhile the Constitution requires the state to protect people’s privacy and personal data, the country has never passed a specific law on personal data protection to enumerate the rights of data owners and establish what kinds of data are legally considered personal.The publication of the country’s first two COVID-19 patients’ personal data resulted in privacy breaches and assault.Fear of stigma and ostracism has prevented many people in the country from being tested for COVID-19.

Show Sevilla we are the best in Europe, Conte tells Moses, others

first_img “We’ve managed to get to the UEFA Europa League final, despite the small disappointment of not getting through the Champions League group stage. “We see the glass as half full, because [that disappointment] has allowed us to have a much more successful journey in the Europa League than we would have had in the Champions League. I think this team, with a lot of young, inexperienced players, needed that.” Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez have formed a sensational partnership upfront and Conte credits their selflessness. “I knew Lukaku very well because he’s a player I’d followed for some time. I tried many times to sign him at my former clubs. I knew the characteristics he had. “They’re players who have the typical selfishness of a forward, but also the selflessness to play for the team and help others score.” Diego Godin fully confessed that he struggled at first to understand what Conte wanted of him, so the coach gave a clearer explanation. “He had to learn to defend while running forward, and to learn to defend with 50 yards of space behind him. He had the strength, professionalism and humility to make himself available and broaden his game in terms of playing style. “So, credit to him. He put himself out there and took on the new challenge, and now he is seeing great results.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Inter Milan manager, Antonio Conte, has urged his wards to ‘show on the pitch we’re the best’ against Sevilla in the Europa League Final, but it has already ‘been a positive season overall.’ “It will be a tough game. We’re playing the team with the most experience and who have won the most titles over the last decade of this competition,” Conte told UEFA.com. “We have to be attentive, but also play our own game with great enthusiasm and courage, like we have done so far. It’s a final and only the best teams get to the final. So we have to show on the pitch that we’re the best if we want this trophy. read also:Moses vows: ‘Inter will win Europa League trophy for Conte’ “We have to play with the desire to win and bring the trophy back to Italy – and to bring a trophy back to Inter. Sevilla will have the same idea, so we have to show that we’re the better team. “For me, it’s always important to be able to say to the lads, at the end of the game, that we don’t have any regrets. If we’re the better side, we’ll lift the trophy. If not, we’ll have given our all, and we’ll applaud our opponents.” This is the first major European Final for Inter since Jose Mourinho won the Treble in 2010, while it is the first in Conte’s career. Does that mean his first season at San Siro has been a success? “We still have to draw our final conclusions as there’s still one more match, which for us is the most important game – it’s a final, the chance to win a major trophy. I certainly think it’s been a positive season overall. We’ve done important things and have made major improvements.

Blues battle to beat QPR

first_img Striker Diego Costa returned following a four-game absence with his problematic hamstrings and showed few signs of rustiness as Chelsea took the lead through Oscar’s stunning strike. Try as they might, Jose Mourinho’s men were unable to build on the lead and, after Hazard’s weak header, QPR broke to equalise through Charlie Austin’s improvised finish with 29 minutes remaining. Chelsea had only previously dropped points this term in drawing at Manchester City and Manchester United; another draw in Mourinho’s first London derby with relegation-threatened QPR was almost unthinkable. The Blues were saved when Eduardo Vargas bundled over Hazard 15 minutes from time and the Belgium playmaker netted from the penalty spot. The win saw unbeaten Chelsea, who play Maribor in Champions League Group G on Wednesday, stay four points clear of second placed Southampton and, more significantly, took them nine ahead of defending champions Manchester City. City play United, 13 points behind, at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday, so have a game in hand, but last season’s runners-up Liverpool are 12 adrift ahead of next Saturday’s clash with Chelsea at Anfield. QPR fell back into the drop zone after briefly climbing out with last Monday’s defeat of Aston Villa. Chelsea had failed to score in three of their previous four matches with QPR, so the return of Costa as one of eight changes from the midweek win at Shrewsbury was welcome, even though it meant Didier Drogba dropping to the bench after three goals in three games. The Spain striker, scorer of nine Premier League goals in his previous seven games, showed few signs of the persistent hamstring problem which has so perplexed Mourinho as he set about terrorising the QPR defence in close quarters and with explosive runs in behind. Costa teed up Oscar, who scuffed a shot wide, before finding Willian, whose cross was directed into the side-netting by Branislav Ivanovic, with the Serbian thumping the post in frustration. Austin, the scorer of both goals in the defeat of Villa, was thwarted as he met David Hoilett’s cross as QPR briefly entered enemy territory before Leroy Fer’s hesitation allowed Chelsea to snuff out another visiting attack. Cesc Fabregas won the ball midway inside QPR’s half and shot only to be denied by Rob Green as the visitors kept Chelsea at bay, but Mourinho’s men struck soon afterwards. Filipe Luis had the ball down Chelsea’s left and play was switched by Fabregas, who ran with the ball, exchanged a one-two with Costa and then fed Oscar in the right side of the QPR area. The Brazilian brilliantly hit a first-time shot with the outside of his right boot into the far corner for his fourth of the season. The Blues have scored in 16 straight games – since drawing 0-0 with Norwich in May – and Costa, when fit, has been prolific since his arrival. The 26-year-old, playing his first Chelsea game since the October 5 defeat of Arsenal, demonstrated his all-round contribution before having an effort blocked by Richard Dunne. Willian shot at Green late in the first half and early in the second Costa came within inches of capitalising on Dunne’s back-pass to the QPR goalkeeper. Hazard was on the receiving end of a verbal torrent from Mourinho for failing to anticipate Oscar’s through ball before the Belgian made amends by running at the QPR defence. His pass for Willian was too heavy and the Brazilian had to check his run before crossing towards Hazard, who was unable to stretch to reach the ball. Hazard bamboozled even himself in falling in the QPR penalty area and Mauricio Isla’s well-timed challenge on Costa frustrated Chelsea in the visiting box again. Costa crossed to the far post and Hazard barely connected with a header, when Chelsea would have preferred that the latter had been at the far post. And the miss was punished when Rangers equalised on the counter-attack. Thibaut Courtois palmed Vargas’ shot from the right away, Fer mis-hit a volley from the edge of the area and Austin re-directed it in with his heel. Sandro’s shot was deflected wide and Mourinho turned to Drogba, with Willian sacrificed, as the Blues switched to a 4-4-2. Green saved an Oscar free-kick and Chelsea were given a lifeline when Vargas clumsily barged Hazard over as the Belgian charged into the box. Hazard converted, sending Green the wrong way. Costa took his leave, with Andre Schurrle coming on in his place, as Mourinho reverted to one up front, but still QPR would not be subdued as Austin had an effort blocked by Gary Cahill. Drogba’s appeals for a back-pass against Green were rejected as Chelsea held on. Press Association An Oscar special and an Eden Hazard penalty earned Premier League leaders Chelsea a 2-1 win in a hard-fought west London derby with QPR at Stamford Bridge. last_img read more

Red Force reach 269 for six on day one

first_imgBASSETERRE, St. Kitts, (CMC) – A half-century from Yannic Cariah led consistent batting down the order from Trinidad & Tobago Red Force against Leeward Islands in the Regional 4-Day Tournament on Saturday.Cariah was unbeaten on 73 and a few others got starts without carrying on, as the Red Force dodged showers and batted the entire first day of the 10th round match to reach 269 for six in their first innings at the close.The left-hander anchored the visitors’ batting for the latter half of the day, as fellow left-hander, opener Amir Jangoo supported with 46, Ewart Nicholson made 45, fellow rookie Akiel Cooper added 41 and Isaiah Rajah made 40 after the visitors were put in to bat on a typically batsman-friendly Warner Park pitch.None of the Hurricanes’ bowlers distinguished themselves, after new captain Montcin Hodge called correctly and the two sides spent part of the day avoiding rain which swiped close to an hour of play.Red Force suffered an early setback when makeshift opener Imran Khan was lbw to Jeremiah Louis for a duck in the fourth over of the day.The rest of the visitors’ batting however, gradually wore down the Hurricanes bowlers with Jangoo featuring in successive half-century stands with Rajah and Nicholson before off-spinner Jacques Taylor bowled him after lunch.For the remainder of the day, Cariah was the glue that held the Red Force batting together, sharing a vital 94 for the fifth wicket with Cooper that took the edge off the Hurricanes’ bowling later in the day.RED FORCE 1st Innings+A Jangoo b Taylor 46I Khan lbw b Louis 0I Rajah c Saunders b Tonge 40E Nicholson c Campbell b Peters 45Y Cariah not out 73A Cooper b Campbell 41R Primus b Bonner 17T Webster not out 1Extras (b3, w1, nb2) 6TOTAL (6 wkts, 75 overs) 269To bat: *M Richards, B Charles, S Cottrell.Fall of wickets: 1-8, 2-75, 3-127, 4-137, 5-231, 6-268.Bowling: Tonge 14-2-66-1, Louis 12-2-40-1, Peters 12-2-50-1, Taylor 23-3-69-1, Campbell 13-1-40-1, Bonner 1-0-1-1.HURRICANES – *M Hodge, N Bonner, K Carty, C Hughes, J Otto, A Saunders, G Tonge, J Louis, +J Campbell, J Taylor, S Peters.last_img read more

Sixth Milo School Football tournament launched

first_img… Technical support for coaches being offeredEIGHTEEN schools in Georgetown will join six out-of-town teams in this year’s Milo School Football tournament which is set to begin next weekend.Two teams from the East Coast of Demerara along with one each from Linden, West Bank Demerara, East Bank Demerara and Berbice will make up the out-of-town sides.This was revealed yesterday by co-Director of the Petra Organisation, Troy Mendonca, at the launch of the tournament at the Beepats Sophia office.Set for a January 27 start, the tournament is expected to run via a round-robin format with six groups of four in the first stage.Following that, the top two teams from each group, along with the best four third-place finishers, will move on to the round-of-sixteen stage.According to Mendonca, the programme has grown from strength to strength.“Six years ago, we launched this programme and our aim then was to revitalise the sport, especially at the school level and I think over the years, it has served its purpose and has taken its place in the setup of football in Guyana.”He also made reference to several youngsters who have been products of the programme and who have gained places in the various national teams.Meanwhile, head of the Physical Education Department within the Ministry of Education, Nicholas Fraser, contended that the body has been adhering to the advice of his office.He continued, “It’s very heartening to see that the tournament is expanding to out-of-town schools and there are many talented youths out there who sometimes don’t get the opportunity to showcase their talents and develop themselves.”TECHNICAL SUPPORT AVAILABLE Technical Director of the Guyana Football Federation Ian Greenwood contended that the tournament continues to be one used for spotting potential and youth team prospects.In this regard, the Federation is encouraging teachers and coaches to take advantage of the technical support being offered by his office ahead of the tournament.“The GFF technical department is open for anybody who wants to come and discuss things. We have technical officers in the various regions who can come down and help with your schools and prepare things.”This, he noted, can be accessed through the Petra Organisation, the coordinators of the Milo tournament.Executive officer of Beepats, Jonathan Beepat, contended that for the period his company has been in existence, the entity has prided itself in assisting sport as its corporate social responsibility.“Being a family-owned business from my grandfather’s days and even my father’s days, we’ve always sponsored sports.” Beepat said the company has assisted many big names in the sport world.$1.1M is up for grabs with the tournament winners getting to choose for their school a developmental project worth $500 000.Second-place will have a $300 000 budget, third-place $200 000 and fourth-place $100 000.The teams will be released shortly.last_img read more

SA PoloAfrica Excited Playing in Access/UNICEF Polo Tourney

first_imgSA Poloafrica has expressed delight at featuring at the 2016 Access Bank-UNICEF Charity Shield Polo tournament holding at the Fifth Chukker Polo and Country Club, Kaduna.The team made up of David Lephatsi, Thabo Mofokeng, Anthony Mothijoa and Taota Ntoeleng – all of whom are underprivileged black boys from the poor rural areas of South Africa – were the only non-Nigerian team in the 15-team UNICEF Cup which marked the opening week of this year’s event.Although the boys from Nelson Mandela’s country returned home empty-handed having missed out of the top-four position that would have seen them compete in one of the finals, the memory of their five-day stay in Nigeria will live with them for sometimes as they savour the serenity of the Fifth Chukker Polo Resort“We are very comfortable here at the Fifth Chukker and this shows that Nigeria is a very nice place. The people are very friendly and we are already looking forward to coming back next year, ” expressed Mothijoa, 23, the SA Poloafrica captain. The team’s background made them the toast of the neutrals for the UNICEF Cup but despite falling short of a podium finish, hitman Ntoeleng, who spearheaded their wins against New Line Farms and Aerovote, believes that playing in Nigeria will help them develop faster.The 21-year-old submitted: “The experience is good because the way polo is played in Nigeria is much difference with our style in South Africa.“Here you ride faster and hit long balls which was quite exciting to watch. We will return home to add that to our style of play and we are sure it will work for us. “The team which was sponsored by the South Africa Tourism Board departed home in the early hours of yesterday.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Why this hack will always remember 2009-10 Syracuse basketball team

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on May 3, 2010 at 12:00 pm Commentscenter_img The cab to the airport arrived around 5 a.m. and parked outside my Sumner Avenue home.Conversation with the gruff driver waiting inside already seemed unlikely. Not just because he seemed like the silent type; planted firmly in his front seat and eclipsed by a thin film of cigarette smoke. But because I, too, wouldn’t be talking while I dug through my bag and realized all the things I’d forgotten (press pass, it turned out).He asked me where I was headed, and I told him Louisville. It was to cover Syracuse’s regular season finale against the Cardinals. The last game at Freedom Hall. I didn’t think he’d care. I didn’t bother to mention it.But at that moment, he knew why I was going where I was. Like so many people I’d met since the start of basketball season, the Orange actually meant something to him. He didn’t remember player names exactly (Andy Rautins was something like that guy who can shoot. Wes Johnson, I gathered, was the really, really good one.). But regardless, we talked Orange hoops the entire way as the driver expertly navigated around a shut-down Route 81. Being the men’s basketball beat writer for The Daily Orange made me some kind of expert. For whatever reason, this guy cared about what I had to say.I walked onto the plane that day knowing for certain this was the best job anyone could have.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textKnowing what I knew, covering what I covered, I was riding alongside the beat of the community. Bartenders, students, parents and teachers all wanted to tell me why they thought Andy Rautins went 0-for-2 against Marquette and what Jim Boeheim could do to fix it. And they listened, I think, when I talked about the Golden Eagles’ triangle-and-two defense and how it’s designed to take out primary scorers (thanks, Boeheim).Maybe it’s because I never shut up anyway. Talking about sports is great and this just afforded me another opportunity.But being around the 2009-10 Syracuse men’s basketball team was something more. I watched as the hype grew from Dolphin-prone lightweight to the toast of New York City in less than a month. I got to see Wes Johnson emerge from cagey forward to dazzling lottery pick.And on those really great occasions, I got to see random members of the community and talk to them about their team. Those moments — hearing what everyone had to say about Kris Joseph’s viability as an NBA forward, about Brandon Triche’s subtle firepower, and about how people like this year’s team better because ‘nobody pretends to be a gangster when they’re not,’ were just as fun as sitting courtside.Just like a few of them read my stories (thanks, Mom and Dad), I listened. Journalism, as we’re taught, is a form of public service, providing information to the public. And with a year like this one, where everyone seemed engaged, interested and inside the Carrier Dome against Villanova, it made everything all the better.When I leave this place for good in two weeks and move on to another city, another paper and another team, I hope I find something this good ? a place where people want to pick up The Daily Miracle and start a conversation. I hope to find an opportunity like I did to meet so many interesting people. And I hope, one day, I can be part of the community’s beat one more time and get the chance to remember why I love this job as much as I do.So, as I finish writing my last few words at this paper, I just wanted to say to the basketball team, the fans, the teachers, the bartenders and especially the cab drivers, thanks. It has been one hell of a ride.Conor Orr was the sports editor at The Daily Orange, where his column will no longer appear. He can be reached at corr.syr@gmail.com.-30-last_img read more
