Improved public transportation, especially in Jakarta, also played a role in the declining demand for vehicles, Jahja said, as people think they no longer need to own vehicles to get around.Despite the decline, he said, the company still booked a 1.4 percent year-on-year (yoy) growth in loan disbursement for four-wheeled vehicles, as the bank’s subsidiary, BCA Finance, had become a market leader for car loans in the country.Read also: BCA lowers loan growth target to 5%-7% over virus, market concernsThe drop in vehicle loan disbursement was mainly influenced by a sharp decline in two-wheeler vehicle loans, which plummeted by 34.5 percent yoy to Rp 2.19 trillion in 2019. Aside from the rise of ride-hailing apps, Jahja also attributed the nosedive to last year’s slumping purchasing power as well as fierce competition in motorcycle financing.“Our fiercest competitor are finance companies owned by motorcycle manufacturers, and we admit that we haven’t become a top-of-mind name in the segment,” he said.Across all segments, BCA booked 9.5 percent growth in outstanding loans to Rp 603.74 trillion in 2019, supported by double-digit growth from the corporate segment and the commercial and small and medium enterprises (SMEs) segment. That compares with 6.08 percent growth in the overall commercial banking industry last year.Topics : Bank Central Asia (BCA), Indonesia’s largest private lender by market value, is blaming the bank’s contraction in automotive loans last year on the rise of ride-hailing apps and the “millennial lifestyle”.President director Jahja Setiaatmadja said on Thursday that the rising use of smartphone apps to book a car or motorcycle ride had seen the bank’s automotive loan disbursement contract by 1.1 percent to Rp 47.63 trillion (US$3.47 billion) in 2019.“The presence of online ride-hailing apps has made it more convenient for everyone to travel. This has also changed many people’s, especially millennials’, lifestyle in big cities, as they think they don’t really need to have their own vehicles anymore,” he explained during a press briefing in Jakarta.
Andrew Stockdale of Wolfmother at Byron Bay Schoolies. Picture: Darren Leigh Roberts Stockdale recalled a visit from KISS legend Paul Stanley, but said his favourite memory was having a beer on the deck once the renovations at 71 Prince St finally came to an end.Architecturally-designed, the house was completely modernised but the character features were retained.Stockdale said he was living at the property during the year-long renovation, admitting it was a “test of patience” with builders walking through the house from 7am every day.But he is happy with how the renovation has held up, saying it had “aged well”. Stockdale had a beer on the deck once the year-long renovation was done. Stockdale, who is now 42, grew up in Ashgrove, and said he loved the western suburbs for its art galleries, cafe culture and famous hills.He said the sale of 71 Prince Street would close the final chapter on his Brisbane property portfolio. At one point, Stockdale owned both 69 and 71 Prince St in PaddingtonAs for his current home in Byron Bay, Stockdale said any renovations were strictly “one week only”.Wolfmother heads off on their European tour in May. Wolfmother’s Andrew Stockdale. Picture:Rob Leeson“I was on a tour bus and there was this roadie filling out some forms and that’s when I realised, roadies were buying houses and I was still renting in Ashgrove,” he said.“I saw it (69 Prince St) online, the blue sky, the palm trees, and went and had a look and bought it just for the view.“Then the house next door (71 Prince St) went on the market and it had an even better view so I bought it and turned number 69 in to a studio.” Stockdale has listed his house at 71 Prince Street in Paddington When it was suggested that the styling was a “bit vanilla for a rock star”, Stockdale laughed, saying “you can’t live the rock’n’roll life all of the time”.“I wanted a zen place,” he said. “I like the more contemporary architecture and the minimalist look.“In many ways, that’s how I tour now — one crew, two guitars, a virtual amplifier, simple.” WOLFMOTHER lead singer Andrew Stockdale is selling his ‘calm zen-like’ retreat in Brisbane’s inner city.Property records show that the rocker bought the house at 71 Prince Street in Paddington in 2007. Speaking exclusively to the Courier Mail, Stockdale, who now lives in Byron Bay, said he first bought 69 Prince Street, which he used as a recording studio in the band’s early days.It was here he wrote the second record for Wolfmother, Cosmic Egg. The house has ‘city glimpses’“Prince St is so close to everything, literally a short walk to the hottest cafe precinct,” Ms O’Dea said.“The house is east-facing with city glimpses. It’s the perfect melding of modern design with prized character features.”It has three bedrooms, open-plan living and entertaining areas, and a contemporary kitchen with stainless steel benchtops, a subway tile splashback and Miele appliances. The sliding glass doors that surround the kitchen and living areas open on to the elevated, east-facing rear deck. “I love the house as it’s so close to the city and it’s so calm and relaxing. It’s so rare to have a city view with a rainforest-like scene out the back,” Stockdale said.“You are so close to the city there, yet you feel like you are in a rainforest retreat.”But the sale may not be smooth sailing, with the musician joking that his 13-year-old daughter was not keen to let the house go.“She’s not happy about it,” he said. “But it is time to move on.”The two-storey cottage is listed with Ray White Paddington agent, Judi O’Dea, and is on the market with a price guide of $1.2 million to $1.3 million.While completely renovated, it retains its ‘Paddo style’. There are no black walls or graffiti murals here, with the minimalist interior likely to appeal to all buyers.More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus14 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market14 hours ago
There are no suggestions that former Barcelona midfielder Paulinho has the deadly disease, but China closed its borders at the weekend to returning foreigners, even those with work and residence permits.Former West Ham United striker Marko Arnautovic is also among the more than 30 overseas players and coaches still abroad, reports say, dealing another blow to hopes that the Chinese Super League (CSL) season could begin any time soon.Arnautovic’s Shanghai SIPG had more luck with Oscar, Hulk and new signing Ricardo Lopes, hastily chartering a small aircraft to fly them back from Brazil.They landed in Shanghai on Friday night along with their families, according to local media, having departed Sao Paulo and making a brief stop in Malta to refuel.The trio will now spend 14 days in isolation as required by the Chinese government for all arriving foreigners, which should also prevent any potential spread of coronavirus to the rest of the SIPG squad.But Brazilian international Paulinho, 31, and compatriot Anderson Talisca failed to make it back to CSL champions Guangzhou Evergrande, the Guangzhou Daily said.Shanghai Shenhua’s Colombian international Gio Moreno is another stranded at home after many international air routes were suspended because of the virus outbreak.Marouane Fellaini, Shandong Luneng’s former Manchester United midfielder, is the only known coronavirus case in the CSL, having recently returned to China.It is unclear when China will lift its restrictions on the entry of foreigners, having announced the “temporary” measure on Thursday.

This year because of the new rules with numbers per race, they needed to split the two divisions into 4 different races. Batesville was in the first division and competed in the first two races of the morning. It was a change for the athletes to race in weather with low humidity and under 70 degree weather, but it was definitely welcomed. Although Batesville just raced two days prior at County, almost all ran personal bests for the season and several for their career. Both the boys and the girls teams were crowned the meet champions for the Division 1 race of 6 teams with the girls scoring 28 points to 2nd place Taylor’s 55 points. The boys beat the field by 50 points with a score of 21 points with East Central coming in 2nd at 71 points. The Batesville uniform was also the first to cross the finish line in both races as Ava Hanson and Ean Loichinger led the way for the Bulldogs and were named the individual champions. Ava sprinted into the finish line about 14 seconds in front of 2nd place finisher Rachel Campbell of East Central. Ava just missed breaking into the 19’s as she crossed at 20:01. Sophomore Sophie Myers ran a career personal best and placed 3rd (20:45), then Batesville flooded the line finishing 7-11 places. This group was led by Maria Lopez (21:05) with Madison Rahschulte (21:14), Megan Allgeier (21:33), Lily Pinckley (21:40) and Trysta Vierling (21:55) following. For the boys, Ean Loichinger took command from the very beginning of the race and never looked back, racing into the finish line just under 17 at 16:59. The Bulldogs then took the next two spots as Benjamin Moster was just 5 second behind at 17:04, followed by Adam Hollowell (17:28). The Dogs had two more in the top 10 and they were Daren Smith (18:01), 6th and Eli Loichinger (18:17) in 9th. Also earning awards by placing in the top 20 were Nathan Villani in 13th and Will Nuhring in 19th. Way to go Bulldogs! On the reserve side Batesville girls dominated as all runners took the first spots 1-6, scoring the magical 15 points. They were led by Carley Pride (23:35) who was then followed by Katie Olsen, Ella Moster, Sarah Ripperger, Jada Eisert and Hope Kroen.The Boys also captured first place by just 5 points to the East Central Trojans 25-30. The boys were led by Kyler Daulton (19:11) with Landon Gutzwiller right behind him in 2nd. Dillon Murray took 5th, Luke Nuhring, 8th, Sean Callahan, 9th and Elliott Mertz 12th. Way to go Dogs! Personal Bests for the morning were Sophie Myers, Megan Allgeier, Ella Moster and Landon Gutzwiller. Awesome job!

The Jac-Cen-Del Boys Soccer team got a huge 2-0 victory against The Indy Lutheran Saints.This was a very important game for us. Indianapolis Lutheran is the team that defeated us 1-0 in last year’s Semi-State. We were fortunate enough to get them on our regular-season schedule this year. Both teams were ranked in the top 5 coming into the game so we felt it was going to be a good gauge of where we stood in 1A Soccer. We were able to walk away with a 2-0 victory on Saturday Afternoon and get a little revenger for that Semi-State loss.We were really fortunate to get to halftime with a 1-0 lead. The wind was blowing in our defenses face the entirety of the half and really helped keep the ball in front of our goal. Nathan Hoffman did an excellent job in goal coming up with some key saves. With less than 5 to go we awarded a free-kick that Morgan Sutton used to set us up for a nice goal by Jacob Jines. In the second half, we were able to put a lot more pressure on Lutheran and Jacob finished off a beautiful shot from outside the 18. We had a few more good opportunities to add another goal but Lutheran kept us out for the rest of the half.Hopefully, this win gets us heading in the right direction. We have struggled a bit recently getting motivated for games. We looked a lot different in this one and I hope that continues.The North Decatur Girls Golf team traveled to Grand Oaks Golf Club to face East Central. The team shot a 258 for the round, falling to East Central’s 247.

Here is everything you need to know about KC Wolf and the history of Chiefs mascots:MORE: Every Super Bowl winner, rankedWhat is the Kansas City Chiefs’ mascot?The Kansas City Chiefs have used a wolf named KC Wolf as their mascot since 1989. The character was elected to the National Mascot Hall of Fame in 2006 and remains the only NFL mascot to be inducted. For the past 30 years, a man named Dan Meers has been the primary person underneath the costume. He survived a scary fall during a 2013 zip-lining stunt and was hospitalized, and he has continued his work since recovering from that incident.Chiefs mascot name, colorsKC Wolf is a gray wolf typically dressed head to toe in red Chiefs apparel. Unlike most mascots, KC Wolf features googly eyes that circle wildly as it dances around.Why is the Chiefs mascot a wolf?Wolves are not signficant to Kansas City, so the KC Wolf did not come into existence because of local wildlife. Instead, KC Wolf is named after a group of rowdy fans in the early years of the Chiefs dubbed the “Wolfpack” who sat behind the Chiefs’ bench at Municipal Stadium.Will KC Wolf haunt you in your nightmares?There are certainly scarier mascots than KC Wolf scattered around major U.S. sports, such as Pierre the Pelican and Gritty. But the Kansas City icon is still somewhat unsettling — googly eyes and human-sized animal costume are never a great combo — and those already predisposed to fearing adults pretending to be mythical creatures are likely to steer clear.Why did the Chiefs need to change their mascot?Before KC Wolf, there was Warpaint, a horse ridden up and down the field by a white man in mock Native American garb. In addition to being offensive to indigenous people and their cultural traditions, it was considered by some to be ineffective at captivating children at Chiefs games. So, management brought in KC Wolf, a figure that has remained a staple of the team ever since. Warpaint returned to Arrowhead Stadium in a slightly less prominent capacity in 2009. The horse is now ridden by a cheerleader sans Native American imagery, and it has not usurped KC Wolf as the official mascot.Not everyone has been a fan of the horse comeback.“I’ll wait until the horse pass,” former Chiefs safety Eric Berry said on the field in 2012. “I don’t mess with horses, bro. Straight up. He might come over here and throw a tantrum.” The Chiefs’ mascot is a wolf named KC Wolf. It has been around since 1989, but it is not the organization’s first representative — before KC Wolf, there was a live animal mascot discontinued for several reasons, which we’ll get to later in this post.Unlike other U.S. sports, most NFL mascots are not regarded as main franchise identifiers. Still, they present fans with a fun stadium presence, and KC Wolf carries a historic place among its NFL counterparts as one of the league’s longest-standing mascots.
An unidentified motorcyclist was struck and killed on Interstate 95 early Saturday by a City of Lauderhill police cruiser that was being driven by officers who had been chasing a stolen car from Broward County in Palm Beach County, according to a Florida Highway Patrol spokesman.Lieutenant Yanko Reyes says the officers were attempting to enter the grassy shoulder near Mile Marker 91, which is near the Palm Beach County/Martin County line and below the Hobe Sound exit, while approaching a car that was stopped in the area, when they struck the motorcycle.The motorcycle driver, described only as an Asian male, was taken to Martin South Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.The incident started when Lauderhill Police received an alert from the Boca Raton Police Department about a car that had been stolen in Boca and had subsequently been located in Lauderhill.Officers found the car following a second vehicle that also been reported stolen, according to Reyes. When they attempted to conduct a traffic stop on the second car, a pursuit started onto I-95, but was called off soon after entering Palm Beach County.Reyes says the officers continued driving, looking for an exit, when they noticed a vehicle on the right grass shoulder immediately before the collision happened.The case is still under investigation.
