South Korean conglomerate donates $255,000 worth of medical equipment to Indonesia

first_imgTopics : The Investment Coordinating Board (BKPM) will distribute the donations gradually over the next 20 days. Meanwhile, the rapid test kits are expected to arrive later this month from South Korea.”This is a real symbol of the close ties between Indonesia and South Korea,” BKPM head Bahlil Lahadalia said in a statement on Monday. “The BKPM will help with the distribution so that medical staff and app-based ojek drivers affected by the COVID-19 outbreak can benefit accordingly.”CJ Indonesia, which has operated in the country since 1988, joins other companies in donating medical equipment amid the unfolding pandemic. The BKPM previously received 50,000 polymerase chain reaction (PCR) testing kits from another South Korean conglomerate, LG Group.Hospitals across the country are in need of medical supplies and test kits as the number of infected patients continues to rise amid calls for more aggressive testing. Official figures showed that more than 4,500 people have contracted COVID-19 in Indonesia, with the death toll reaching nearly 400. “As we forge relations with the BKPM and Indonesia during our 32-year operations, we have a sense of belonging and togetherness,” said CJ Indonesia business development director Wahju Onasis. “We want to help ease the burden caused by this outbreak.Two-Wheeled Movement Union (Garda) leader Igun Wicaksono added: “The donations we received today [Tuesday] from CJ Indonesia and the BKPM will be of great help to us — the app-based motorbike taxi drivers who have suffered as a direct impact — to support our daily operations.”Read also: TikTok donates Rp 100 billion for COVID-19 medical workersApp-based ojek taxi drivers are among the vulnerable groups that have been hit the hardest by the government’s social restriction policy to contain the spread of the virus.According to Online Driver Association (ADO) head Wiwit Sudarsono, drivers’ earnings have plunged nearly 80 percent, especially for those who usually transport passengers.A report by big data firm Statqo Analytics showed that Grab and Gojek had seen a 16 and 14 percent downturn, respectively, among their active ride-hailing users within the last week of March. A significant drop was seen on March 19, three days after schools and many businesses closed to prevent the spread of COVID-19. CJ Indonesia, the local arm of South Korean conglomerate CJ Corporation, donated on Monday rapid test kits and hand sanitizer worth Rp 4 billion (US$255,000) to healthcare facilities and app-based motorcycle taxi drivers, as demand for these crucial items remains high in the fight against COVID-19.The company, which manages bakery franchise Tous Les Jours, among other businesses, has prepared 1,000 bottles of hand sanitizer, 200,000 pieces of bread and 200,000 milk packages to be distributed to state-owned hospitals and community health centers (Puskesmas) handling COVID-19 patients, as well as ojek drivers impacted by the government’s large scale social restrictions.Read also: COVID-19 news is not all bad.

Pennsylvania Celebrates 20th Anniversary of HealthChoices Program; Highlights Necessity of Providing Affordable, Quality Care

first_imgPennsylvania Celebrates 20th Anniversary of HealthChoices Program; Highlights Necessity of Providing Affordable, Quality Care Healthcare,  Medicaid Expansion,  Press Release,  Seniors Harrisburg, PA – Today, Governor Tom Wolf announced that the Department of Human Services (DHS) celebrated the 20-year anniversary of HealthChoices, Pennsylvania’s Medicaid program.  Since implementation in February 1997, the program has expanded to cover all 67 counties and serves over 2.8 million children, individuals with disabilities, pregnant women, and low-income Pennsylvanians by providing primary and specialty care, preventative care, dental care, prescription drugs, and behavioral health services.“The success of the HealthChoices program highlights why Pennsylvania needs to continue to provide affordable, quality care to residents who need it most,” said Governor Tom Wolf. “While Pennsylvania’s Medicaid system is providing quality medical care and timely access to services, Republicans in Washington are proposing to roll back coverage. Their proposal would pull the rug out from under our most vulnerable citizens, including seniors, children, and individuals with disabilities, by slashing their health care and putting their lives at risk.”In 2015, Governor Tom Wolf announced Medicaid expansion. As a result, over 700,000 more Pennsylvanians have enrolled in HealthChoices. Of those 700,000 individuals, almost 125,000 have received vital drug and alcohol treatment which has been instrumental in battling the opioid and heroin crisis. If Republicans in Washington rolled back Medicaid, these Pennsylvanians would be robbed of the opportunity to seek substance use treatments, which would exacerbate our already crippling opioid and heroin crisis.In the recently revealed Republican health care proposal, Medicaid expansion would be scrapped, future reimbursement for states would be capped, and people with pre-existing conditions may no longer be guaranteed coverage. This would force more people to rely on the emergency room for uncompensated care, which translates to higher costs for all of us, and likely push many small and rural hospitals in Pennsylvania to close.“Over the last two decades, the department has delivered access to critical health care to Pennsylvania’s most vulnerable. HealthChoices has given Medicaid recipients access to a wide array of services in a cost-effective manner through a more streamlined, consumer driven system,” said DHS Secretary, Ted Dallas. “ Any rollback of Medicaid could be fiscally devastating to the commonwealth or force us into rationing care for Pennsylvanians, which is unconscionable.”Currently, Pennsylvania has the lowest uninsured rate in the state’s history at 6.4% for the general population and 4.1% uninsured rate for children.Provider enrollment in the MA program has also increased. Today more providers than ever are enrolled in the Pennsylvania MA program, increased from 92,801 in 2014 to 108,776 currently.“One of the department’s main goals is to provide access to high-quality services. The HealthChoices program does just that,” said Dallas.Key design features of HealthChoices have contributed to its success over the long term:Inclusivity – MA recipients of all ages and most eligibility groups, including older Pennsylvanians and individuals with disabilities, participate;Focus on special needs – The definition of special needs for HealthChoices recipients is not limited by clinical diagnosis allowing for individuals to access treatment easily;Comprehensive array of services;Enrollment assistance – enrollment specialists provide accurate, unbiased information to enrollees to help them select their health plan;Continuous open enrollment – MA recipients may request a health plan change at any time;Consumer choice – participants are able to choose from the participating health plans;Health home – Access to primary, preventative, and specialty care through their primary care provider; andOngoing public input through consumer committees.For more information on the HealthChoices program, visit www.HealthChoicesPA.com.

Lou Williams, Clippers stave off elimination, push Warriors to a Game 6

first_img“Bingo!” said Clippers hero Lou Williams (33 points, 10 assists), who scored eight consecutive points, including a critical four-point play, in the final few minutes as the Warriors went cold and L.A. stole a second victory in Oakland, spoiling Kevin Durant’s career playoff high of 45 points.“Oh me, oh my,” added Clippers guard Patrick Beverley, channeling another of Lawler’s catch-phrases after getting the cornered Clippers on the right track early with 11 points, six rebounds and two assists in the first quarter. Beverley finished with 17 points (5 for 11 from 3-point range) and a career-high 14 rebounds and took a big charge against Klay Thompson with 1:40 left.“I thought Patrick Beverley came in, just kicked our butts right away,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. “He came out with more energy than we had and that set a tone.”The Clippers built leads of nine points in the first half and 15 in the third quarter before Steph Curry buried a 3-pointer to cut the margin to three with 5:55 left in the fourth.Durant dunked to tie it at 116-116 and after Williams made one of two free throws, another Durant dunk made gave the Warriors a 118-117 lead and got the 19,596-member crowd at Oracle Arena shrieking its approval. Clippers hope they can play to their capabilities, quell Mavericks’ momentum Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error “I’m blessed to have teammates who believe in me coming down the stretch, that make sure I have the ball in my hands, that have confidence in me to go out there and make those plays,” said Williams, who finished 12 for 19 from the field.“And when you have a locker room full of guys who are gonna live and die with the decisions that you make in the fourth quarter, it makes your job tremendously easy … I go out there and try to do the best that I can to help us get a win.”“I think you’re being modest,” Beverley interjected. “He’s a killer, man. I done guarded the best of them, I see him every day in practice, man, he’s a real killer. He goes up with some of the best scorers in the NBA; he should be up there with some of the superstar players in this league. He’s doing it day and day out – at 6-1-and-a-half, I believe.“And,” forward Montrezl Harrell chimed in, “he don’t start!”Harrell added 24 points off the bench, converting 11 of his 14 attempts to help delay for at least another game the heavily favored Warriors’ second-round date with the Houston Rockets, who closed out their series with a Game 5 victory over the Utah Jazz earlier Wednesday.The Clippers shot 54.1 percent from the field (to the Warriors’ 44.8 percent), made 24 of 26 free-throw attempts and outrebounded Golden State 42-39.“This gives us more confidence than the comeback win,” said Clippers guard Garrett Temple, referring to the Clippers’ NBA playoff-record 31-point comeback in Game 2.“I feel like we had a lot of control, we did what we wanted to do and guys who shot the ball, they shot it in spots we wanted them to shoot it, and offensively we just played a lot more like we usually did in the regular season.”The get-Gallo-going plan finally took hold: After missing his first three looks from the field, Clippers forward Danilo Gallinari laid in a bucket, and then buried back-to-back 3-pointers late in the first quarter and, suddenly, he was knocking down shots, converting hook shots, driving for layups and getting calls.Related Articles Clippers vs. Mavericks Game 5 playoff updates from NBA beat reporters For Lakers’ LeBron James, Jacob Blake’s shooting is bigger issue than a big Game 4 victory Kristaps Porzingis ruled out as Clippers, Mavericks set for Game 5; Follow for game updates But then Williams went to work and put the game out of reach, beginning with the 26-foot pull-up jumper that resulted in a four-point play with 2:32 left. Another Williams basket pushed the lead to 123-118, then after Beverley drew the charger on Thompson with 1:40 left, Williams capped his personal run with a 14-foot fadeaway jumper with 1:29 left.

(AP Photo/Ben Margot)ExpandOAKLAND — Ralph Lawler doesn’t typically approach Doc Rivers on the floor during pregame, but with the Clippers’ season – and his career – on the line in Game 5 on Wednesday night at Oracle Arena, he did.“He walked up to me, first time ever, and said, ‘Coach, I’ve had 20 people congratulate me on my career and say good luck like tonight is the end of Ralph. Please do something about that,’ ” Rivers said. “So, Ralph, we did.”The never-say-die Clippers felt more like themselves Wednesday, defeating the two-time defending NBA champion Golden State Warriors 129-121 and sending this best-of-seven first-round playoff series back to Los Angeles for a Game 6 on Friday at 7 p.m.Trailing 3-1 and facing elimination Wednesday against the top-seeded Warriors, the Clippers extended both their surprising season and the soon-to-retire broadcaster’s Hall-of-Fame tenure for at least one more game. A 43.3 percent 3-point shooter during the regular season, Gallinari came in having made just seven of his 25 attempts from deep – many of them open – in the series. On Wednesday, he shot just 3 for 11 from 3-point range but still finished with 26 points and seven rebounds.“Me and Lou were on the bench telling him to keep shooting,” Temple said. “Him shooting that shot is great for us, and we knew he was gonna start hitting them. he was big for us, obviously.”The Clippers even made good on Lawler’s Law on Wednesday: As the first team to 100 (the Clippers led 100-94 with 30 seconds left in the third), L.A. was obligated, by the “Law,” to win Wednesday.JaMychal Green, who started in place of Ivica Zubac for a second consecutive game, made three of six 3-point attempts, including the one that got the Clippers to the century mark and another that gave the Clippers an 81-66 lead with nine minutes left in the third quarter.“It’s great to get two wins, especially here, in the playoffs, to be able to bring the series back home is great,” said Gallinari, adding one last thought about Lawler’s delayed retirement: “Another reason why we won!” The @LAClippers keep their season alive, winning Game 5 on the road in a thrilling, fantastic finish! #ClipperNation #NBAPlayoffsGame 6: Friday (4/26), 10pm/et, ESPN pic.twitter.com/nqqy4JljOL— NBA (@NBA) April 25, 2019last_img read more

Week 16 Fantasy Rankings: Kicker

first_imgWeek 16 is finally here. All of your blood, sweat, and tears has brought you to your fantasy football championship game. There’s no better feeling than playing for a title, even if it’s just in a virtually scored league based on the actions of real-life people you’ll probably never meet. Thank goodness it won’t come down to a game-winning kick because you got rid of kickers before this season. Wait… your league still has kickers? You actually need some Week 16 fantasy kicker rankings? Well, luckily for you, I wrote some more words and put some names in order.It’s winning time, and that means there’s no messing around — no being lazy and not changing your kicker just because you don’t want to take the time to do it. Just like I advised last week, two of the biggest factors when choosing a kicker this time of year is whether misses count against you and what the weather forecast looks like. We’ll make adjustments as the week goes on due to the latter. (Update: Keep an eye on Greg Zuerlein’s health ahead of Saturday as he deals with a quad injury.)WEEK 16 NON-PPR RANKINGS:Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/STAt first glance, one thing stood out this week: Matt Prater gets to return and kick in the thin air of Denver. We know how intriguing he was as a fantasy kicker during his time with the Broncos, and so that intrigue is back this week (weather permitting). We also have Zane Gonzalez, Matt Gay and Younghoe Koo as high as they’ve been all season because they just keep on draining kicks.WEEK 16 DFS LINEUPS:FD Cash | FD GPP | DK Cash | DK GPP | Y! Cash | Y! GPPIf you’re in a tricky kicker spot for some reason, give Josh Lambo a try. Getting to use his big leg in Atlanta’s dome against a defense that should allow ball movement could pay off. MORE WEEK 16 DFS: Stacks | Values | Lineup BuilderLike I said above, these rankings will be updated throughout the week if there are any late-season kicker moves or particularly concerning or helpful weather developments, so check back later in the week, too.  WEEK 16 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiver | Tight endWeek 16 Fantasy Rankings: KickerMORE WEEK 16: Waiver pickups | FAAB planning | Stock watch | Snap counts | Fantasy playoff tipsRankPlayer1Justin Tucker, BAL @ CLE2Greg Zuerlein, LAR @ SF3Michael Badgley, LAC vs. OAK4Wil Lutz, NO @ TEN5Zane Gonzalez, ARZ @ SEA6Matt Gay, TB vs. HOU7Younghoe Koo, ATL vs. JAX8Harrison Butker, KC @ CHI9Joey Slye, CAR @ IND10Matt Prater, DET @ DEN11Dan Bailey, MIN vs. GB12Jason Myers, SEA vs. ARZ13Mason Crosby, GB @ MIN14Josh Lambo, JAX @ ATL15Jason Sanders, MIA vs. CIN16Jake Elliott, PHI vs. DAL17Ka’imi Fairbairn, HOU @ TB18Brandon McManus, DEN vs. DET19Daniel Carlson, OAK @ LAC20Kai Forbath, DAL @ PHI21Chris Boswell, PIT @ NYJ22Eddy Pineiro, CHI vs. KC23Austin Seibert, CLE vs. BAL24Robbie Gould, SF vs. LAR25Dustin Hopkins, WAS vs. NYG26Greg Joseph, TEN vs. NO27Sam Ficken, NYJ vs. PIT28Chase McLaughlin, IND vs. CAR29Randy Bullock, CIN @ MIA30Aldrick Rosas, NYG @ WAS31Nick Folk, NE vs. BUF32Stephen Hauschka, BUF @ NElast_img read more
