Divorce rate soars in Bandung during new normal

first_imgRead also: Japan firm offers spouses apartments to avoid ‘coronavirus divorce’He said the drop in divorce requests might have been caused by restrictions imposed by the court, such as allowing people to file for divorce by online means only.“After the start of the new normal policy, we reopened our registration desk as stipulated in the Supreme Court regulation. This allows more couples to file for divorce,” Acep said on Friday, as quoted by kompas.com.The court chief went on to say that couples had cited various reasons for their divorce, ranging from financial issues to household disputes.Several countries have reported an increase in divorce rates amid social restrictions and quarantine in the COVID-19-stricken regions. China’s Global Times earlier reported that being stuck at home led to conflict in many couples, causing divorce appointments to tick up. (kuk)Topics : The divorce rate has increased significantly in Bandung, West Java, as the government eased COVID-19 restrictions in the so-called new normal period, after the rate had dropped significantly during the large-scale social restrictions (PSBB) period.The Bandung Religious Court office received 433 divorce requests in March.

PB Djarum training, audition system could be used as a model: Lawmaker

first_imgThe House Commission X had invited sport scientists, universities’ school of sport representatives, sports think tanks and sports clubs to discuss the revision of the National Sports System Law, which is currently ongoing.Commission deputy chief Dede Yusuf, a former taekwondo athlete and movie star, said their suggestions could be used to improve the national training system.“The commission wants to learn more about a proper training system so we could develop the system and apply that to all sports,” the Democratic Party politician said.In attendance were leading badminton club PB Djarum, the Liga Kompas Gramedia U-14 junior soccer league, Indonesia Education University (UPI) sports training experts, the Sports Teachers Association, Riau province’s Center for Students Education and Training, and sport scientist from Semarang State University. Yoppy Rosimin of PB Djarum said the club had been holding open auditions in many cities in search of potential talent from all over the country. The players who pass the series of tests will train at PB Djarum’s badminton facility in Kudus, Central Java.“We were able to reach potential athletes from remote places as well. Families with financial constraints could also take their children to train with us for free,” Yoppy said as quoted in a media statement sent to The Jakarta Post on Wednesday.Of the 216 athletes, 39 have joined the national training program with the Indonesian Badminton Association (PBSI).Among the top shuttlers who were discovered by PB Djarum are Tontowi Ahmad, Alan Budikusuma, Susi Susanti and Kevin Sanjaya Putromuljo.

first_imgFIFA ethics judges open case against Valcke ZURICH (AP): FIFA ethics judges have formally opened a case against Jerome Valcke, who faces a nine-year ban from football. The ethics committee’s judging chamber says it “decided to institute formal adjudicatory proceedings” against FIFA’s former secretary general after studying a prosecution file sent by ethics investigators. The judges acted one day after extending Valcke’s 90-day interim ban by 45 days. Valcke is charged with several violations of the FIFA code of ethics while serving as President Sepp Blatter’s top aide since 2007. The charges include accepting gifts and conflicts of interest. The judges gave no details of the case, citing Valcke’s “privacy rights and the presumption of innocence until proven guilty”. Man United recall winger DORTMUND, Germany (AP): Belgium winger Adnan Januzaj was returning to Manchester United yesterday after his one-year loan spell at Borussia Dortmund was cut short after half a season. The Bundesliga side confirmed that the clubs agreed on “an immediate return”, and that the “last contractual details between the parties are being sorted out”. The 20-year-old Januzaj joined Dortmund at the end of the last transfer period but failed to make his mark with the side. He played just 166 minutes as a substitute in six Bundesliga games, managing four shots at goal, and scoring none. He played two full games in five Europa League appearances for Dortmund, but again didn’t score. Football’s rule-makers discuss approving video replay trials LONDON (AP): Soccer’s rule-makers are discussing whether to approve trials of video replays to assist referees who find it harder to keep up with the faster, modern game. The International Football Association Board first approved technology in 2012 that was limited to systems determining whether the ball crossed the goal-line. But the FIFA-dominated panel met yesterday in London to decide whether to allow the first official in-game tests with video replay systems that could, for example, help to inform referees on whether a penalty should be awarded, a player should be sent off, or consider violent conduct they might have missed. It is “physically harder for referees to keep up,” and high-tech assistance is proving essential, English Football Association chief executive Martin Glenn said. Kiwis beat Lankans by three runs in T20 MOUNT MAUNGANUI, New Zealand (AP): Martin Guptill and Kane Williamson each made half centuries in a 101-run opening partnership to help New Zealand beat Sri Lanka by three runs in the first Twenty20 international between the teams yesterday. Guptill scored 58 from 34 balls to give New Zealand the high-tempo start they needed after Sri Lanka won the toss and elected to bowl first. Williamson supported him with 53 from 42 balls to lead New Zealand to 182-4. In reply, Danushka Gunathilaka made 46 and Milinda Siriwardana 42 to help Sri Lanka keep things close into the final over.last_img read more

Matchup is work in progress

first_img Willingham first became Stanford’s head coach in 1995, but he said the inequality is not something he’s discussed for only the past 10 years. “We’ve been talking about this for 300 years,” Willingham said. “If you go back to origin of our country and talk about slavery coming forward. “It’s no different than some of the religious battles other groups have had to fight. There will always be many different battles, and this is one of those. Does that make it right? No, but it’s something that’s out there and you have to fight through it.” They would just like to coach, however unrealistic that is. Just get their programs when they want them to be, teach their players to be good young men, to be the best football players they can be, to help them graduate. There were hired to lead programs, not movements. “It is what it is,” Dorrell said. “Whatever perception it’s made to be, it has to be. I know I’m not carrying any other flag but UCLA’s flag. I’m trying to build this program to the stature it’s capable of being. That’s my goal. It’s not that I’m concerned about anything other than accomplishing what I need to here. “Now if a byproduct happens because I’m black and having success and it gives other people opportunities to do those things, then great.” Black head football coaches have met precious few times in the college ranks. “Well, that probably hasn’t happened as much as two white coaches,” Dorrell said. According to statistics provided by the NCAA, Saturday will mark the 12th meeting of Division 1-A programs led by two African-American head coaches. Willingham will have been involved in three of them, coaching Stanford against San Jose State and Fritz Hill in 2001 and Notre Dame against Michigan State and Bobby Williams in 2002. Now he’ll be part of a little Pac-10 history, however belated. “I think anytime you have firsts, it’s always significant,” Willingham said. “But it does point, hopefully, to a problem we will be curing at some point. That you’ll be able to see a day when it’s more based on their abilities.” There has been more tangible progress for blacks elsewhere. There are currently six head black coaches in the NFL. Yet in the collegiate ranks, an unseen, shameful barrier remains. The NFL requires that minorities are interviewed for head-coaching positions. Willingham is not enthralled with the prospect of requiring that NCAA schools follow suit. “I don’t think you accomplish anything necessarily with legislation,” he said. “A forced move on people’s part usually doesn’t work well. When we have taxation forced on us, most of us want to rebel to some degree. “The thing is we just have to have an open mind about letting the best man be able to do the job. If the best man happens to be an African-American, it should be a joy for us to have him involved in the system. If the best man is not an African-American, it should be a joy to have that individual in the system. It’s just giving the best man an opportunity.” So simple in theory, so agonizingly slow and difficult to execute. Dorrell and Willingham know each other, but are not particularly close. Dorrell said while coaching receivers for the Denver Broncos he wrote Willingham to congratulate him for his first-season success at Notre Dame; Willingham wrote back. “I have a great deal of respect for him,” Dorrell said. Now they will meet for the first time as head coaches. Maybe some day it won’t be noteworthy that they’re both black. Regrettably, in 2005, it still is. They might take great pride in their part of making conference history, if their attention wasn’t so focused elsewhere. “I hadn’t thought about it that way,” Dorrell said. He would rather not have reason to, but how distressing the times say he still does. Steve Dilbeck’s column appears in the Daily News four times a week.

This does not qualify as progress. The numbers scream inequity. The numbers tell a tale more simply than Dorrell or Willingham or anyone ever could. Both seem somewhat reluctant to even address the issue. “I don’t think I’m in this profession because I’m black and because I got affirmative action to get this job,” Dorrell said. “That’s not why we’re here. There are a number of things that get blown out of proportion, and I’m sure he’d say the same thing. “I’m proud that I’m representing the minority coaches trying to do the things that I’ve been fortunate to do, but I don’t want to take any further than that. “There are a lot of great minority coaches just waiting for the opportunity to become a head coach and they’ll get their opportunities. But sadly enough, it depends on the success that we have.” They can’t pretend it’s not there. They would much rather it wasn’t, of course, that the entire subject was no longer worthy of questions and comments and unease. UCLA’s Karl Dorrell and Washington’s Tyrone Willingham will lead their schools into the Rose Bowl on Saturday, chipping away at one small piece of history. center_img It will mark the first time two African-American Pacific-10 Conference head football coaches face each other. That this would be historic in 2005 makes it almost as troubling as Dorrell and Willingham actually representing two-thirds of all head black coaches – out of 118 Division 1-A programs.

Cousins says he was ejected for using big-man fundamentals

(AP Photo/Scott Threlkeld)METAIRIE, La. — New Orleans center DeMarcus Cousins says he was protecting a rebound the way all big men are taught when he was ejected for a flagrant foul during a game against Oklahoma City.Cousins was called for a flagrant-two foul when he raised his right elbow near Thunder guard Russell Westbrook’s head during the third quarter of the Pelicans’ 114-107 victory Monday night.ADVERTISEMENT Kris Aquino ‘pretty chill about becoming irrelevant’ Stronger peso trims PH debt value to P7.9 trillion Westbrook complained that when he was struck in the head during a game, he didn’t receive the same treatment Nurkic did. And Donovan sarcastically said at the time that he “probably didn’t ask Russell to stay down on the court long enough to get it reviewed.”Cousins, meanwhile, said he was aware of how his ejection following contact with Westbrook fit into the Thunder’s own recent history with disputed flagrant fouls.“It shows that Russ is coachable,” Cousins said. “He listens and they got what they’ve been working on.” Kammuri turning to super typhoon less likely but possible — Pagasa Cousins, who did not speak about the play until after Tuesday’s practice, said Westbrook “did a good job of selling” the foul in the way he fell to the floor, holding his head.“It’s crazy. When you start playing the game of basketball as a big man, they tell you, ‘When you get a rebound, keep your elbows high and out,’ you know, to protect the ball from guards coming in stripping,” Cousins said. “All I did was use my fundamentals and I got punished for it.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutCousins, who has a history of on-court emotional outbursts that draw a relatively high number of technical fouls, said he knew officials would not give him the benefit of the doubt when they reviewed the play on a video monitor before ejecting him.“I’m DeMarcus. I expected the ejection. I knew,” said Cousins, who was assessed a league-high 18 technical fouls last season.Cousins added that he’s not sure what he can do differently going forward other than “send the refs a Christmas card — I don’t know — the league, too. Send Christmas cards, stuff like that.”The play occurred under the Pelicans’ basket in the third quarter after Cousins had secured a rebound.

Only contact deemed “unnecessary and excessive,” according to the NBA rule book, which also employs the term “unsportsmanlike” in the section pertaining to flagrant fouls.In some ways, the play appeared to be an extension of recent Thunder protests about officiating that drew $15,000 fines.Westbrook, Paul George and coach Billy Donovan all were fined for comments about a flagrant foul called against Carmelo Anthony, whose elbow made contact with Jusuf Nurkic’s head while Anthony was shooting the ball.

This was the first year when 16 group-stage places were guaranteed for the Big 4 leagues in Europe — Spain, England, Germany and Italy. The four countries put 12 teams in total into the round of 16, the draw for which is on Monday.MADRID HUMBLEDWith the Club World Cup only a week away, Madrid coach Santiago Solari rested most of his key players and used several others who hadn’t started much this season, including Francisco “Isco” Alarcon and Marco Asensio.There was no intensity to Madrid’s play CSKA capitalized, completing a home-and-away double over the titleholders that still didn’t lift the Russian team off last place. Viktoria Plzen beat Roma 2-1 to finish in front, with CSKA needing to better Plzen’s result in the Czech Republic.ADVERTISEMENT Fedor Chalov and Georgi Schennikov scored late in the first half for CSKA, and Arnor Sigurdsson added another after the break.“It’s sad … to beat Real Madrid, earn seven points, but finish bottom and get eliminated from Europe,” CSKA coach Viktor Goncharenko said.MISSED CHANCEMourinho might also have had one eye on an upcoming game, with United playing great rival Liverpool in the Premier League on Sunday.His understrength team still featured Pogba, France’s World Cup-winning midfielder who has fallen out of favor with Mourinho and started on the bench for the last two Premier League games.Pogba’s chances of getting back in the starting lineup for the weekend won’t have been helped by his bad miss when the score was 0-0, prodding the ball wide from inside the six-yard box.Carlos Soler put Valencia in front with a driven first-time finish after latching onto Jones’ clearing header in the 17th, and the United center back made an even bigger error for the second goal in the 47th. Jones slid in to clear the ball as he chased down Valencia striker Michy Batshuayi, but only succeeded in slotting it past Sergio Romero from 20 meters with the goalkeeper having come off his line.Marcus Rashford pulled a goal back in the 87th for United.Ronaldo played the whole game for Juventus, which was undone by goals from veteran Young Boys forward Guillaume Hoarau in the 30th and 68th minutes. Paulo Dybala cut the deficit in the 80th.LYON THROUGH Only one qualification place was up for grabs on the final night of group play and it was a straight shootout in freezing sleet between Lyon and Shakhtar Donetsk, which was forced to play its home game in Kiev after it was relocated due to martial law in various regions of Ukraine.Nabil Fekir’s 65th-minute goal earned Lyon a 1-1 draw that preserved second place in Group F behind Manchester City, which beat Hoffenheim 2-1 thanks to Leroy Sane’s double to seal top spot.Shakhtar dropped into the Europa LeagueBAYERN TOPBayern Munich’s wild 3-3 draw at Ajax — featuring four goals from the 82nd minute, including an equalizer for Ajax five minutes into stoppage time — earned the German champion first place in Group E above the Dutch team.
