The government has postponed the plan to construct Indonesia’s new capital city in East Kalimantan as the country switched its priorities to mitigating the coronavirus pandemic, an official has said.National Development Planning Agency (Bappenas) head Suharso Monoarfa confirmed with The Jakarta Post on Wednesday that the capital relocation plan had been suspended for the time being, since the pandemic had forced the government to shift its policies.Suharso previously announced the postponement of the multibillion dollar project during a meeting on Tuesday with House of Representatives Commission XI overseeing finance and banking affairs. “To this day, the program of relocating the nation’s capital is still on hold,” Suharso told lawmakers in the meeting.Although the construction plan was suspended, Suharso said the government would continue with the planning stages for the new capital, which will be built in North Penajam Paser and Kutai Kartanegara regencies, including those related to infrastructure development in buffer cities of East Kalimantan’s provincial capital, Samarinda, and port city Balikpapan.Read also: Jokowi’s capital relocation dream faces COVID-19 hurdleIn the initial plan announced last year, Public Works and Housing Minister Basuki Hadimuljono said the government would begin construction of the new capital that would replace Jakarta in 2021. President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo previously said the relocation and construction of the new capital city — planned to be a smart metropolis that supported the growth of innovation and green industries — would cost around Rp 466 trillion (US$ 31 billion).According to the Finance Ministry, the state budget would cover Rp 89.4 trillion, 19.2 percent of the cost while Rp 253.4 trillion, 54.4 percent, would be financed through government cooperation with businesses. The remaining Rp 123.2 trillion, 26.4 percent of the cost, would be gained through private financing.During the meeting with the House on Tuesday, Suharso also proposed a Rp 1.77 trillion budget for Bappenas next year, an increase of Rp 260.8 billion from the previously approved Rp 1.5 trillion in the 2021 budget.Out of the additional budget, Rp 240 billion would be used to fund the agency’s priority programs, such as the data portal initiative referred to as Satu Data Indonesia (One Data Indonesia) and continuing the sustainable development goals programs.Topics :

Chelsea are seeking a first league title since 2009/10 this term after Mourinho’s return to Stamford Bridge, marked on Sunday with a 2-0 defeat of newly promoted Hull. England midfielder Lampard was a mainstay of the side in Mourinho’s first spell when Chelsea won a first championship in 50 years and retained the title. Pointing to Chelsea’s sixth-placed finish in 2012 and third-placed finish last term, the England midfielder hopes another Premier League title can be won after two seasons of turmoil which have ended in European silverware. “What we have done in recent years is not stay in the race in the early stages and drop down a few points, then it is hard to get back,” Lampard said. “We are determined to stay in the race this time and stay right up there. “What matters is what you do out on the pitch. There was certainly a nice buzz (about Mourinho), but this was his first game and things will settle. What we can’t do is settle ourselves, we have to keep pushing.” Lampard, whose pre-season action was limited by an Achilles problem, had an eventful outing. His early penalty was saved by Allan McGregor before he beat the Scotland goalkeeper with a vicious free-kick for Chelsea’s second, after Oscar had given the hosts the lead. Mourinho believes no team will be able to cope with his Chelsea side if they can sustain the level of performance they showed in the opening half an hour. “Everything was there,” he told Chelsea TV. “If we play one game for 90 minutes the same way we played the first 30, we destroy any team that comes here. (But) we couldn’t do it.” With important matches to come against Aston Villa on Wednesday and at defending champions Manchester United next Monday, Lampard hopes Chelsea can at least be in title contention for longer this term. “The Premier League is very difficult these days, the games come thick and fast and consistency is difficult,” he added. “What the manager did last time he was here was to keep us on the ball so we won week in, week out and that’s what we have to do again. Press Association “What matters now is Aston Villa come on Wednesday after beating Arsenal with a very quick and young team, so we can’t rest on our laurels. We have to keep kicking on.” Chelsea, too, have a young team, with Lampard, John Terry, Petr Cech, Ashley Cole and Michael Essien surviving members from Mourinho’s first spell in charge, which came to an abrupt end in September 2007. “The young people, they need the older generation to be amongst them,” said Mourinho, whose team selection was made with experience in mind. “Playing or not playing, being in the line-up or not, we need these four, five players that we have – and they’re doing fantastic work – to support the other kids.” Lampard enjoyed the atmosphere on Mourinho’s homecoming and is pleased to be reunited with his former boss. “There is a lovely buzz around the place,” Lampard added. “I am happy myself to be here and I was very excited in the morning to get going again and the whole stadium was buzzing with the manager returning. “You can see what it means to him. All it needs now is for us to go and perform consistently and keep getting results.” It was a tough baptism for Hull, who improved as the match wore on. Manager Steve Bruce is optimistic his players will rise to the challenge in the Premier League. “It’s a wake-up call to us, if we ever needed it, that we’ve arrived on the big stage,” Bruce said. “Some will shrink with it and some will grow into it and make a fist of it. “I’m convinced the vast majority of them will make a fist of it and be successful.” Frank Lampard insists Chelsea’s players are determined to make a sustained Barclays Premier League title challenge this term and cannot rely on the Jose Mourinho effect alone.

TRANSFER NEWS…Edinson Cavani wants to join Atletico Madrid and is being treated “unfairly” by Paris Saint-Germain, the Uruguay striker’s father said on Wednesday.Cavani, 32, has fallen out of favour at PSG, where he is competing with Kylian Mbappe, Neymar, Mauro Icardi and Angel di Maria for starting spots in attack. A number of clubs are reportedly keen on signing Cavani, who has scored a club-record 198 goals for PSG and whose contract expires in the summer. Atletico appear to be the 32-year-old’s preferred choice but the La Liga outfit and PSG are yet to agree a fee.“I would like him to play there, (Atletico coach Diego) Simeone wants him now but the head coach of Paris Saint-Germain (Thomas Tuchel) says he needs him to help them compete in the Champions League,” Cavani’s father Luis told Spanish television programme El Chiringuito.“I think there is a strong chance he will go to Atletico. There is also the option to join the club in June. There are lots of other clubs interested but when you give your word to a team, you respect it.“If he is allowed to leave tomorrow and Atletico still want him, I think he will sign. He is a player who needs time to play and at the moment he only plays four or six minutes per game. PSG are treating him unfairly.”Atletico have struggled for goals this season and currently sit third in La Liga, eight points behind Real Madrid and Barcelona.Cavani would give the club a welcome mid-season boost, with a crunch last-16 tie against Liverpool to come in the Champions League next month.“Paris Saint-Germain have rejected three bids from Atletico Madrid,” Cavani’s mother Berta Gomez told Madrid newspaper AS on Wednesday.“My son has asked to leave and we are waiting for an agreement from both clubs.“He is angry because he does not understand why are blocking him leaving if they do not count on him to play.”Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Edinson Cavani

Amanda Cariddi was done with her pregame routine.She checked the tape on her stick, watched the ice for a few minutes, visualizing saves and breakaways, and played soccer with her teammates in the locker room.Cariddi was halfway into her pads, five minutes before warm-ups, when Syracuse head coach Paul Flanagan pulled her out of the locker room before Saturday’s game.He told Cariddi that she would be making her first career start.“It was honestly good for me to find out five minutes before,” Cariddi said. “You don’t have all that time to think about it. I just got in the moment, got in the zone and went for it.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThough Cariddi spent her first two years at Syracuse on the club ice hockey team, she joined SU’s Division I team midway through last season. She’s held a backup role since then, but made her first career start on Saturday, posting 23 saves and conceding just one goal. Hockey had always been a part of her life, but she gave up the dream of playing NCAA hockey — only to eventually wind up on a Division I team.“I think it’s pretty neat to have someone who comes in here and appreciates every single thing that a Division I program affords these kids,” Flanagan said. “And she made the most of it.”From a young age, Cariddi was begging her parents to take her to the rink and lining up in goal in her driveway for her brother to whip shots at her.As she grew up playing on multiple teams, it was clear that Cariddi had talent, but the pinnacle of any North Adams, Massachusetts native’s hockey achievement was D-III.Before her senior year at a local technical high school, Cariddi tried out for the Boston Shamrocks of the Junior Women’s Hockey League and decided to forgo her senior year to move to Boston and play. But the day before she left, the team canceled her contract.“She was extremely upset,” said Barbara Cariddi, her mother. “A lot of kids would have let that crush them, but she didn’t.”Academics came first to Cariddi and hockey second, so she passed up on D-III schools to play club at Syracuse.While her parents were helping her bring her equipment to Tennity Ice Pavilion at the start of her freshman year, her father, Patrick Cariddi, said, “Wouldn’t it be funny if one day you got a chance to skate on the SU varsity team?”“That’s not going to happen,” Patrick Cariddi recalls his daughter responding. “It doesn’t work that way.”But two and half years later, an injury and a departure left Syracuse with just one goalie. Flanagan contacted Cariddi via Facebook message and asked her to join the team. Cariddi was out of shape and didn’t have the skill level that Flanagan would normally look for in a goalie, but he needed her.The first few weeks of practice, she said, were “hell.” The other players were in mid-season shape, while Cariddi was coming out of the “beer leagues.”“I got more shots in probably the first 15 minutes on the ice here than I had in a whole practice for club,” Cariddi said.There were days she could hardly sit, walk or stand, but she made it through the end of the year and returned for her senior season. Prior to Saturday, her only appearance had been for 12 minutes in a blowout loss to Clarkson in October. She made three saves, but let in two goals.But with one game to go in the season and a first-round conference tournament bye in hand, Flanagan sat usual starter Jenn Gilligan.As Cariddi took the net during warm-ups, her parents, sitting in the stands, looked at each other in disbelief.The goalie lives by the motto of “Don’t dream it, be it,” but years ago her goal of playing NCAA hockey seemed like more of a pipe dream. Now, she’s started a D-I game and turned into a celebrity in her hometown.“This whole thing has been a dream come true for her, something that she never thought she’d get,” Barbara Cariddi said. “… She got to be the dream, so it was touching.” Comments Published on February 26, 2015 at 12:06 am Contact Jon: firstname.lastname@example.org | @jmettus Facebook Twitter Google+

Facebook Twitter Google+ The slightest quiver could be heard in Eva Gourdeau’s voice. As she retold the story from of how she tore her ACL – feeling the immediate pain in her knee during a match, collapsing to the ground, being unable to straighten it the next morning and then getting the confirmation from the doctor – her face became stoic.The memory still brought back strong emotions for the freshman forward.“That moment, everything just broke down,” Gourdeau said. “It was like my biggest fear coming to life.”Gourdeau suffered her injury on Dec. 15, 2014. In SU’s (4-10-1, 0-6 Atlantic Coast) Oct. 8 loss to Notre Dame – nearly 10 months later – she made her collegiate debut. She was the only Syracuse player to record a shot in that match and Wheddon hinted that he may use Gourdeau again against North Carolina State (4-10, 0-5) on Sunday at SU Soccer Stadium.The rehabilitation process, as is the case with most recovering from a torn ACL, was inconsistent. Gourdeau had to push through the plateaus that came up during the process. She noted that there were times when she felt she was really progressing, but those would be followed up with times she felt that her progress was stagnant.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textGourdeau was cleared to play on Sept. 22. Earlier last week, before the Notre Dame game, head coach Phil Wheddon told her that she was going to travel with the team.She said that she experienced some discomfort when she got onto the field for the first time. But she started getting more comfortable as the match wore on. Even though the shot she took wasn’t perfect, she was just happy being able to shoot the ball.With the Syracuse offense struggling, Wheddon went to his freshman forward to throw a different look at opponents. Still, Wheddon was sure to point out that Gourdeau earned the right to be on the field and said no one on the team gets playing time “just because.““One of the things that we like about Eva is she’s a blue-collar, hard-working athlete,” Wheddon said. “That is a requirement for every athlete, but she just has a little more grit.”Wheddon acknowledged that Gourdeau will have to be eased back into the game after being away from it for so long.“(Gourdeau’s) progression since the preseason, that I’ve seen, it’s been really good, and she just seems a lot more confident and stronger on the ball,” forward Maya Pitts said. “I’m actually excited to see how her play is going to develop.”Wheddon said he hopes Gourdeau holds up physically in practice after playing in two games over the weekend.With only four games remaining in a season that Syracuse has yet to win a conference match, Gourdeau said that her primary focus is getting better every time she gets to take the field in the short time remaining.“When I stepped on the field for Notre Dame, that was a great feeling,” Gourdeau said. “It had just been so long.” Comments Published on October 15, 2015 at 1:11 am Contact Tomer: email@example.com | @tomer_langer

The Blue Jackets have locked up the final playoff spot in the NHL, but they were close to losing it — too close.In Columbus’ 3-2 win over the Rangers on Friday, the Canadiens were eventually eliminated from playoff contention but for about five minutes and six seconds they had renewed hope. The Blue Jackets thought they had the spot locked up after a dramatic comeback in the third period. But down 1-0 entering the final frame, Columbus got goals from Ryan Dzingel and Artemi Panarin which put the team up 2-1 for the final moments.The game was all but over as the lead stretched into the last minute. Related News The Rangers pulled their goalie to grab a one-man advantage and make a last-gasp push to send the game to overtime.With 6.1 seconds left, Pavel Buchnevich gave the Rangers renewed hope.Buchnevich fired a shot from the left side on net and hit the underside of Sergei Bobrovsky’s left pad.

It was improbable and incredible and the kind of theater which makes the NHL playoffs, and playoff push for that matter, some of the best entertainment in sports.Unfortunately for Montreal, it was not meant to be.Neither team was able to score in the overtime period and Panarin put in a shot during the shootout to lock up the win, and the playoffs, for the Blue Jackets.The Canadiens’ Twitter account summed up the moment nicely.Ugh.— Canadiens Montréal (@CanadiensMTL) April 6, 2019While the Blue Jackets have locked up a playoff spot, their postseason fate is still to be determined. The team is likely to play the Capitals in the first round, but if Columbus is to win its final game and Carolina loses its matchup, then the Blue Jackets would face the Lightning and the Hurricanes would take on the Caps.
