Therefore, besides requiring its passengers to wear masks, MRT Jakarta is also urging them not to engage in conversation while commuting, whether directly with other passengers or through phone calls. “It [the policy] is being imposed to provide comfort for the passengers and maintain hygiene within the trains,” the caption of the post reads.As the central government works toward adopting “new normal” measures to cope with the pandemic and to weather its severe economic impacts, the Transportation Ministry through the Greater Jakarta Transportation Agency (BPTJ) is formulating a detailed regulation on public transportation.Read also: Commuter line keeps physical distancing measure during COVID-19 ‘new normal’“The regulation for the new normal approach for public transportation is actually in place –Ministerial Regulation No. 9/2020 issued by the Health Ministry on large-scale social restrictions (PSBB). But the more specific regulation will be issued soon,” BPTJ managing director Edy Nursalam said last week.Previously, the Jakarta administration issued a string of policies for public transportation operations during the COVID-19 pandemic, including cutting the operational hours of its city-owned services such as MRT Jakarta, LRT Jakarta and Transjakarta, as well as reducing the number of fleets for each of the services.The administration also limited the number of passengers in each fleet, imposed physical distancing and conducted temperature checks for passengers. (asp) Indonesia’s first MRT service, MRT Jakarta, has called on its passengers to avoid having conversations while riding on its trains in a bid to break the chain of COVID-19 transmission on public transportation.“As we all know, COVID-19 is transmitted through droplets that can come from infected people who cough, sneeze and talk,” said the management of MRT Jakarta on its official Instagram account @mrtjkt.

Harvard and MIT asked a court Wednesday to block an order by President Donald Trump’s administration threatening the visas of foreign students whose entire courses have moved online because of the coronavirus pandemic.The universities’ lawsuit was in response to an announcement Monday by the US Immigration and Custom Enforcement (ICE) that the affected students must leave the country or transfer to a school offering in-person tuition.”We will pursue this case vigorously so that our international students, and international students at institutions across the country, can continue their studies without the threat of deportation,” Harvard President Lawrence Bacow said in a statement. “The order came down without notice — its cruelty surpassed only by its recklessness,” Bacow said.He added it was made “without regard to concerns for the health and safety of students, instructors and others.”The universities say in their lawsuit that the order would harm students “immensely,” both personally and financially.It describes the order as “arbitrary and capricious” and says it threw US higher education “into chaos.”There were more than one million international students in the US for the 2018-19 academic year, according to the Institute of International Education (IIE).The plaintiffs ask that the court issue a temporary restraining order and “permanent injunctive relief” preventing the policy being enforced.They also ask that the order be declared unlawful, that their legal costs are covered, and that they receive any other relief that the court deems appropriate.’Ridiculous’ The lawsuit, filed in Boston, lists the defendants as ICE and the United States Department of Homeland Security.The US posted a daily high of 60,209 new coronavirus infections on Tuesday, Johns Hopkins University said, and the country topped three million cases on Wednesday.The disease has claimed more than 131,000 lives across America.Most US colleges and universities have not yet announced their plans for the fall semester but Harvard has said all its classes for the 2020-21 academic year will be conducted online “with rare exceptions.”Some 40 percent of undergraduates will be allowed to return to campus, but their instruction will be conducted remotely.It says packed classrooms endanger the health of students and teachers.Trump has branded the decision “ridiculous” as he takes a bullish approach to reopening the country ahead of November’s presidential vote, when he seeks reelection.While cracking down on immigration is one of his key issues, Trump has taken a particularly hard stance on foreigners since the health crisis began.In June, he froze until 2021 the issuing of green cards — which offer permanent US resident status — and some work visas, particularly those used in the technology sector.Topics : Trump is pushing universities and schools to fully open when the new academic year starts in September despite the US registering record COVID-19 cases.ICE said in its announcement the State Department would not issue visas to students enrolled in programs that are fully online for the fall semester and such students would not be allowed to enter the country.Universities with a hybrid system of in-person and online classes will have to show that foreign students are taking as many in-person classes as possible, to maintain their status.The measure was seen as a move by the White House to put pressure on educational institutions that are adopting a cautious approach to reopening amid the global COVID-19 pandemic.
Cairo, Egypt | AFP | Patriotic statements, flashy commercials and an anti-drug campaign: Mohamed Salah’s dazzling displays for Liverpool have taken the football world by storm, and on his home turf in Egypt seemingly everyone wants a piece of him.Salah has shot to stardom thanks to his goal-scoring exploits in England and Europe, and senior Egyptian officials increasingly refer to the player — although he has carefully steered clear of politics.Last month foreign ministry spokesman Ahmed Abu Zeid went so far as to call him “an icon of Egypt’s soft power”.Abu Zeid made the comment on Twitter after Salah scored a brace and set up two more goals as Liverpool beat AS Roma 5-2 in the Champions League semi-final first leg at Anfield last week.The second leg takes place on Wednesday night in the Italian capital.The remarkable game prompted President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi to also congratulate the flying forward. “What he has accomplished calls for pride and affirms Egyptians’ capabilities in all fields… Proud of him every Egyptian who holds Egypt’s name high,” Sisi tweeted.Salah the “Pharaoh” represents an opportunity for the country to improve its image internationally after years of turmoil in the aftermath of the 2011 uprising that toppled longtime ruler Hosni Mubarak.– ‘Global face’ –The fact that “an athlete at that level penetrates the media wall and becomes a face known globally inevitably reflects… on his home country,” said Pascal Boniface, director of the French Institute for International and Strategic Affairs.From the modest village of Nagrig in the Nile Delta, Salah has catapulted to worldwide fame since his arrival last summer in England from AS Roma in a transfer deal worth 42 million euros.Share on: WhatsApp Pages: 1 2 3

By Jay Cook |HAZLET – More than 200 incensed residents packed town hall Tuesday night to protest an affordable housing settlement permitting about 480 new total housing units at a former Catholic school and a vacant farm along Route 36.Homeowners battling the plan were so outraged that they shouted at elected officials and pleaded for a better option. One man was even removed by police after an expletive-laden outburst.“The town cannot handle that amount of people,” said Hemlock Street resident Sam Dimartino. “Look at the amount of people we have back here, nobody wants this. Act like it’s in your own backyard and then vote on it.”Committeemembers Barbara Ronchetti, left, and James DiNardo have voiced their opposition to the housing compliance plan. They’re concerned about the greater impact to Hazlet. Photo by Jay CookThe agreement, which is being negotiated by Hazlet and Fair Share Housing Center, sets guidelines to develop the shuttered, 17-acre Holy Family School and the 26-acre vacant property known as the Stone Road Meadow tract on the Union Beach border. Holy Family would be rezoned for 172 units with 26 affordable and the Stone Road Meadow’s new zoning would permit 312 units with 63 affordable.Township officials were expected to vote on approving this compliance plan but it never reached a vote. Committeeman James DiNardo, who opposes the plan, said Tuesday’s meeting would be for residents to ask as many questions as they wanted. The session lasted four-and-a-half-hours until midnight. A final vote is expected to take place Sept. 4.“I want you people to realize the ramifications of what’s all going to happen with this,” he said. “It’s not a pretty picture.”It won’t be easy for Hazlet’s five-member governing body to reach an agreement. Democrats DiNardo and Committeewoman Barbara Ronchetti are against it, yet Republican Committeeman Michael Glackin and Mayor Scott Aagre said it’s the best deal available. They’re stuck in a gridlock.Mayor Scott Aagre said the affordable housing plan is the best deal available to the township.Deputy Mayor Sue Kiley wasn’t present Tuesday and has recused herself from these proceedings. She’s the business administrator for the Our Lady of Perpetual Help-St. Agnes parish in Highlands which is under the Diocese of Trenton’s umbrella. Holy Family is under the Diocese of Trenton’s direction, as well.Estimates from the state indicate Hazlet is on the hook for 800 affordable units, meaning roughly 3,000 more total units would likely be built by developers to make it profitable.“We have a great deal on the table and we’re basically turning our nose up at it,” township attorney James Gorman said. “There’s blood in the water, developers talk and we’re going to get more and more and more of this.”Gorman said “it’s going to get worse” if the settlement isn’t reached. He warned that Hazlet would go to trial over their lack of an affordable housing plan, would lose control of all zoning to the courts and more properties throughout town could have housing projects built. Of those could be the vacant Bradlee’s, ShopRite and Frank’s Nursey sites on Route 36, as well as another proposed dense project to be located near Costco on Route 35.The Fair Share Housing Act doesn’t recognize the multiple mobile home parks in Hazlet as affordable housing stock, but the township did receive unofficial credit for its existing senior housing options.But neighboring homeowners said the entire process was dysfunctional. Hazlet has gone over 30 years without a submitted affordable housing plan and was slapped with a second Builder’s Remedy lawsuit in November 2015. The lawsuit from Highview Homes, LLC. is for the housing project planned at Holy Family School.A group of about 500 concerned residents have been mobilized in recent months by Jamie Iacouzzi-Capone to form the Hazlet Residents Take Action citizens group. Iacouzzi-Capone said “the minutes have been lost and the trust has been broken” between residents and elected officials.“If the township is truly in favor for working for the people rather than their own personal agendas, there should be no objection,” she added.Iacouzzi-Capone pushed the governing body to leave the Stone Road Meadows property out of the settlement. Resolutions by Hazlet, Keyport, Aberdeen, Keansburg and Union Beach were all passed in recent years supporting that 26-acre property’s future as protected open space.“It would be a punishment to open my front door and see dense apartment housing,” said nearby resident John Wilk. “This development proposed will urbanize the area.”DiNardo and Ronchetti also said they floated a plan in recent years for Hazlet to purchase Holy Family School and turn it into a community center. The necessary votes weren’t there and the plans stalled, they said.Some residents petitioned Hazlet to stand up to the state and seek better options for the ultimate housing developments.“This is a death sentence for the future of this town,” said Gerard Jaume. “This will turn into a Neptune. And it’ll be on all you guys.”This article was first published in the August 9-16, 2018 print edition of The Two River Times.
