The 15-story building, located in a busy quarter in Thamrin, Central Jakarta, has left fond memories for many. It was the first shopping mall built in the country.After more than five decades serving as a catalyst for economic growth, state-run retailer PT Sarinah, which manages the building, plans to change its business strategy and turn the department store into a specialty store that caters more to local brands.Located in the heart of Jakarta, Sarinah is losing its popularity.

EC swept FC at all 3 levels.  Varsity won 25-16, 25-13, and 25-13. ‘The theme for the past few days has been that we started slow and last night was no exception. We were slow to the ball, didn’t communicate, and were just going through the motions for the first half of set one. When they realized FC wouldn’t just fold and give them game, they decided to push a little harder. We never reached our full potential last night, but played well enough to get a convincing win on the scoreboard.’ Trojans Coach Cassie Laker. Varsity is now 8-4 on the season (3-0 in the EIAC).  Next up: Lawrenceburg tomorrow (non-conference) with freshmen starting at 5, JV to follow, then varsity.

With having a day off due to the holiday it was a rough start for this freshmen group. We did not come out of the gate fast enough and trailed behind the Wildcats for more than half of the first set.

US athletics federation calls for Olympic postponement

first_imgRelatedPosts COVID-19: NCAA to revoke erring airlines licence over non-compliance FRSC to Schools: We’ll arrest, prosecute drivers who flout COVID-19 rules Sanwo-Olu: We’re committed to fulfilling promises to Lagosians United States athletics’ governing body joined calls for the Tokyo Olympics to be postponed on Saturday, urging US Olympic chiefs to push for the Games to be delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic. In a letter to the US Olympic and Paralympic Committee, USA Track and Field chief Max Siegel said forging ahead with Olympic preparations “would not be in the best interest of our athletes.” The USATF call for a postponement echoed a similar request by USA Swimming on Friday after the USOPC said it was too soon to postpone the July 24 to August 9 Games. Siegel urged the USOPC to support a postponement, citing the health and safety of athletes as well as disruption to training and competition schedules caused by the COVID-19 crisis. “Our athletes are under tremendous pressure stress and anxiety, and their mental health and wellness is among our highest priorities,” Siegel said. “The right and responsible thing to do is to prioritize everyone’s health and safety and appropriately recognize the toll this difficult situation has, and continues to take, on our athletes and their Olympic Games preparations. “For those reasons, USATF is respectfully requesting that the US Olympic and Paralympic Committee (USOPC) advocate to the IOC for the postponement of the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo.” Siegel acknowledged that there “were no perfect answers” to what was a “very complex and difficult decision.” “But this position at least provides our athletes with the comfort of knowing that they will have adequate time to properly prepare themselves physically, mentally and emotionally to be able to participate in a safe and successful Olympic Games, and that they can shift their focus toward taking care of themselves and their families,” he said. “We urge the USOPC, as a leader within the Olympic movement, to use its voice and speak up for the athletes.” On Friday, USOPC chairwoman Susanne Lyons said there was no need for the IOC to make an immediate decision on a possible postponement of the Tokyo games, insisting that organisers had time on their side. “I think we would concur with the IOC to say that we need more expert advice and information than we have today to make a decision,” Lyons said. “And we don’t have to make a decision. Our games are not next week, or two weeks from now. They’re four months from now. “So we are affording the IOC the opportunity to gather that information and expert advice. At this point in time, we do not feel that it’s necessary for us to insist that they make a decision.” However, the USOPC position met with immediate resistance, with USA Swimming issuing an open letter calling for Olympic chiefs to seek a postponement. “We urge the USOPC, as a leader within the Olympic Movement, to use its voice and speak up for the athletes,” USA Swimming chief executive Tim Hinchey wrote. “The right and responsible thing to do is to prioritize everyone’s health and safety and appropriately recognize the toll this global pandemic is taking on athletic preparations,” he added. The calls for an Olympic postponement by US federations mirror requests in other countries. France’s swim federation has also called for a delay, along with British track and field’s governing body. Retired US track and field star Ashton Eaton, a double Olympic decathlon champion, said on Twitter that delaying Tokyo for a year was the only sensible option. “Tokyo 2021. Nothing else makes sense,” Eaton wrote. “Anything else is socially irresponsible. “How can the IOC and Japanese NOC in good conscience hold one of the world’s largest and most important gatherings and risk facilitating the acceleration of global contagion and having the worst event in history? “Most evidence … showed Tokyo2020 is/was set to be one of the best Olympics in history,” he added. “Japan, the athletes, the sponsors, the fans, local businesses; all deserve the best shot at that. 2020 is not it.”Tags: COVID-19Olympic postponementUS Athletics FederationUSATFUSOPClast_img read more

Big ups HeartsOfOak— George kofi koomson (@Georgekofikoom1) July 22, 2019Kotoko fans are looking across the social media divide a little enviously and while their recent trophy haul might be greater, they will expect better engagement with the public to back their claim as the best club in the country.

While it was encouraging that the club was making an effort to let fans know the status of the squad, the ambiguousness of the tweet became a complaint for fans.Had the players been sold? Had they been put up for sale? Had they been released? It was almost impossible to tell for some people on social media. Kumasi Asante Kotoko might have just been named Team of the Year at the Ghana Football Awards on Sunday night but their recent social media work has left fans less than pleased with the club.Kotoko, usually very creative with their designs and announcements on social media, have earned the ire of fans, particularly on Twitter with recent attempts to communicate their activities to their 124,000 followers on the site.In the last month, the club has sent out a number of, according to many of their fans, half-hearted tweets announcing club signings, exits and other announcements.The most recent transfer-related tweet involved the confirmation of the departure of Adingrah Moussa.While the tweet was brief and did not offer much information other than the fact that the player was leaving Kumasi “for Accra en route to Abidjan,” it was the picture which accompanied the post that irked fans the most, with one asking if the club’s social media manager worked for free.last_img read more
