Erick Thohir establishes morals as ministry’s core value amid 53 legal cases against SOEs

first_imgState-Owned Enterprises Minister Erick Thohir said he wanted akhlak (morals) to become the ministry’s core value amid a rising number of legal cases within some SOEs. The ministry also launched a new logo on Wednesday, citing that the new core value and logo were part of the ministry’s bureaucratic reform.“Akhlak is important to have as a core value because there are currently 53 legal cases against some of our state-owned enterprises and we do not want more cases,” he said in a broadcast keynote speech. “This transformation is not just lip service.” Some of the country’s state-owned enterprises have been in the spotlight for graft cases and lawsuits.Recently, the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) detained PT Dirgantara Indonesia’s former president director and former commerce director as suspects in an aircraft manufacturing graft case. Meanwhile, state-owned insurer Jiwasraya has been investigated for allegedly mismanaging Rp 16 trillion in investment.Read also: Seven companies to relocate facilities to Indonesia, invest $850mErick went on to say that the SOE Ministry was also doubling down on efficiency and good corporate governance by slimming down clusters and reshuffling employees.Previously, the minister slashed the number of SOE business clusters to 14 from 27. He also shuffled the PLN board of directors as well as replacing PT KAI’s president director as part of his plan to restructure major state companies.  He said the ministry must ensure it carries out strategic projects such as those in Batang, Central Java. The ministry did not specify the projects in Batang, but there are several ongoing projects such as a hydropower plant and Batang Industrial Park. (eyc)Topics :last_img read more

Tullow preparing for Namibian wildcat after securing rig

first_imgUK-based Tullow Oil has secured an Ocean Rig-owned drillship and drilling preparations are well underway for an exploration well offshore Namibia with a target spud date of September 1, 2018.The Cormorant-1 well is located in PEL 37 license off Namibia which is operated by Tullow with Pancontinental Oil & Gas, Africa Energy, Paragon, and ONGC Videsh as its partners.As previously reported by Offshore Energy Today, the joint venture has contracted the Ocean Rig Poseidon for a one-well drilling program plus options for drilling offshore West Africa. The contract award was announced by Ocean Rig in late February without revealing any further details about the gig.On Thursday, March 8 Pancontinental informed that, in order to drill the well, the joint venture was required to apply to the Ministry of Mines and Energy in Namibia for permission to enter the next phase of the license, the Second Renewal Exploration Period.Permission has been granted and drilling preparations are well underway, Pancontinental said.Pursuant to the farm-out by Pancontinental to operator Tullow Oil in 2013, the company will now be fully carried through the cost of drilling the Cormorant-1 well. The company holds its interest via its 66.7% owned subsidiary Pancontinental Namibia (PCN) that has a 30% interest in PEL 37.The company will also be paid at spud of the well circa A$7 million by Africa Energy Corp as completion of its acquisition of a 33.3% interest in PCN.Additionally, oil major ExxonMobil recently announced its farm-in into PEL 82 (adjacent to PCL’s PEL 37) for a 40% interest. This validates Pancontinental’s belief in the prospectivity and potential large size of oil resource targets in the area.Commenting on the execution of the rig contract, Pancontinental CEO, John Begg, said: “This is a significant and very satisfying milestone for Pancontinental. First the joint venture unanimously selected the Cormorant Oil Prospect to drill, then the Namibian Government approved the program and now a high technology drillship has been contracted for the job. Roll on September.”PEL 37 covers an area of 17,295 square kilometers in the northern Namibian offshore region. The Cormorant Prospect is located in the Walvis Basin in a water depth of approximately 550 meters.last_img read more

QA1 founder & chairman James Jordan passes away

first_imgLAKEVILLE, Minn. – James “Jim” Jordan, founder and chairman of QA1, passed away Wednesday, July 30 after a long battle with cancer. He was 67. “Jim was a great mentor and very well respected,” said QA1 Product Manager Jeff Diaz, who worked with Jordan for 26 years. “I was lucky to be able to learn from him. He will be greatly missed.”“He had a way of making everyone around him feel important and willing to give him 110 percent effort,” said Karl Hacken, QA1 vice president of engineering. “I always looked up to him as a role model and mentor in business and life.” Dan Voight, QA1 sales manager, agreed, saying “Jim didn’t raise the bar for you, he motivated you to raise it yourself, higher than you thought you could.”Jordan started working in the power transmission industry in the early 1970s and quickly worked his way around related industries, eventually becoming an expert on rod ends. He became known as an innovator of numerous industry-changing products that are now standards across a variety of markets. Throughout his career, he was involved in multiple patents for his ground-breaking ideas.Since founding QA1 in 1993, Jordan marketed rod ends and spherical bearings specifically for the performance racing industry. He then expanded QA1’s product lines into a variety of industrial markets, providing rod ends, linkages and custom products.The company is in its 16th year as a marketing partner with IMCA.Always looking for new ways to grow, he oversaw the acquisitions of Hal Shocks and Carrera Shocks and quickly saw QA1 become a leader in shock absorbers for drag racing, street performance, street rods and circle track applications. He retired in 2005 but returned to QA1 in 2011 saying, “I was no good at golf, so I had to return to my day job.” Since then, Jordan helped grow the company even more in product offerings and manufacturing space. QA1 expanded its Lakeville, Minn., facility to more than 83,000 square feet to allow for in-house manufacturing of carbon fiber driveshafts and, with the acquisitions of CAP Auto Products and Edelbrock’s suspension line, fabricated suspension components.Jordan was involved in all aspects of the company, including engineering, sales and customer service. His visionary leadership played a large role in the success of QA1 and its innovative products.“Jim’s passion, drive and commitment for what he did was truly inspiring,” said Dave Kass, QA1 customer service manager. “He taught everyone at QA1 many values and philosophies that we will continue to follow into the future.” Charlie Pehrson, QA1 engineer, remembers, “As a young engineering intern, Jim made it a point to instill in me a great work ethic and to work not only from my brain but also my heart.”Michael Kunzman, president of Kunzman & Associates, remembers the first time he met Jim: “I realized I’d met a special human being, who had vast experiences, a wonderful sense of humor, brilliance, yet was kind and sincere and as down to earth as one could be.”Although his shoes will be hard to fill, we are very confident that Jim has left QA1 in an excellent position to thrive. We’ll always remember him as a great man and for the contributions that he has made, not only to QA1, but to the motorsports and industrial industries as well.last_img read more

Fury-Wilder III postponed due to coronavirus

first_imgRelatedPosts Tyson Fury to Anthony Joshua: Don’t risk fighting Usyk Britain to impose six-person limit on meetings as COVID-19 cases surge COVID-19: Plateau state tops, as NCDC announces new infections in Nigeria The third fight between heavyweight world champion Tyson Fury and former titlist Deontay Wilder is still on track to take place as their next bout, but it will not be on July 18 as originally planned due to the coronavirus pandemic, Top Rank chairman Bob Arum told ESPN on Tuesday. After Fury knocked out Wilder in the seventh round of their rematch on Feb. 22 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Wilder exercised his contractual right to an immediate third fight. Arum, Fury’s co-promoter with Frank Warren, said the bout would be July 18, also at the MGM Grand, and that it would headline another joint pay-per-view between ESPN, Fury’s broadcaster, and Fox, a broadcast outlet for Premier Boxing Champions, which represents Wilder. However, with the coronavirus situation so fluid, Arum told ESPN that they instead would look toward the fall to schedule the bout. “Clearly not,” Arum said of the bout being on July 18. “We don’t even know if the MGM will even be open by then.” Casinos throughout Las Vegas are closed due to coronavirus and the Nevada State Athletic Commission has canceled all combat sports in the state for the time being. “You could not guarantee the fighters that the event would take place on that date. We couldn’t convince them or ourselves,” Arum said. “Where were they going to train for it? It just made no sense. You just have to take a step back. How are you going to sell tickets? It’s absolutely ridiculous to say the fight is on when the Brits can’t even get there.” Thousands of fans from Fury’s home country of England traveled to the United States for the rematch as well as for the first fight, a controversial split draw in 2018, in Los Angeles. “So everybody has to take a step back. Boxing is not isolated. It’s part of what’s happening in the world,” Arum said. “So possibly the fight will be in early October.” Arum said he has been in touch with Wilder co-manager Al Haymon, the head of Premier Boxing Champions, about the situation and that they are on the same page. “Al and his people are in touch with us all the time on this,” Arum said. “We see things the same way. We’ll be very, very cautious moving ahead and pray this will be over at a particular time and we will be able to make smart plans. Nobody has ever experienced anything like this before.”— Tags: Anthony WilderBob ArumCoronavirus pandemicESPNTyson Furylast_img read more

CATCH 22

first_img Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment. This is placeholder text Advertisement Jordan Evans is still trying to live up to expectations set by being No. 22 after two leg injuries Standing on the turf in the middle of the 49,250-seat Carrier Dome, fans’ stares cornered Jordan Evans. Their eyes pleaded with him: What’s going on now? He caught the glares of people expecting him to play in Syracuse’s 2015 season-opener against Siena.Ranked the No. 1 recruit in the Class of 2013, the Jamesville-DeWitt (New York) product was tabbed by Syracuse head coach John Desko as the first freshman to wear the iconic No. 22 since 2006. His first two seasons haven’t lived up to the hype he came to SU with.Leg injuries diverted Evans’ path away from Syracuse’s record books. His absence on the field compounded the expectations that followed wearing the same number Gary Gait, Charlie Lockwood and Mike Powell wore. He’s invited that pressure and used it to fuel a rediscovery of the player he once was.In the first round of the 2015 NCAA tournament against Marist, Evans scored five goals. Two came while he played attack, his natural position and the one he’ll play in 2016. Three came at midfield, where the start of his career was derailed. Entering his junior year, he’ll have a chance to prove he’s the Jordan Evans of old. That he’s over the injuries, over the pressure and he’s better than the mediocre first two seasons of his career.But when Syracuse opened 2015 against the Saints, he sat out, injured for a second straight season. Again, he could feel people’s disappointment raining down on him. It didn’t matter there was no “22,” his scarlet letter, stitched on his back. The gray sweat suit said more to the fans. The eye contact was “brutal,” he said. His voice wavered.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“All these people who wear this jersey ahead of you put so much pressure on you, and it’s not their fault that they were great players,” Evans said. “It’s the fans who put this pressure on you. There’s nothing wrong with it.“… It’s disappointing that I want to show people, but I haven’t gotten the chance to.”Emma Comtois | Design Editor• • •Evans crumpled to the turf and his mind raced to the worst conclusion: a torn ACL, the 2015 season, also his sophomore season, over before it began. He sat off to the side of practice and broke down, unable to bare another year lost.Just before the season, Evans’ finger split open and his fingertip shattered. It was relatively minor, his mother, Wendi Evans, said, but after a rough freshman campaign, he was ready for a breakout season.“He was really, really upset about that,” Wendi said. “He was just pissed … It was so defeating. ‘Are you kidding me, I just got hurt again?’”“… I said, ‘Jordan, it’s only a finger, it’s not a knee.’”The comment, meant to provide perspective, became reality. Choked up, Evans called Tommy Anthis, a former Jamesville-DeWitt lacrosse player and longtime friend. Anthis says he’ll never forget that call. No number of words could convey the message Evans’ tone spelled out clearer.“He puts a lot of stress on himself,” Anthis said, “and I think it stressed him out more because of the hype when he injured himself for the second time … I think he was more angry than anything.”Photo illustration by Drew Osumi | Staff PhotographerTeammates patted him on the back, telling him everything was going to be fine and that he’d contribute to the team, all things that seemed false. The comforting overtures softened the blow, if only slightly. Luckily for Evans, an MRI revealed he hadn’t torn his ACL and that, with rehab, he could return early in 2015.That was at least a silver lining for the then-sophomore. He would be able to play just one year after his freshman season slipped away because of a high ankle sprain. It prevented him from dodging and cutting, two key parts of his skillset. He was forced to play defensive midfield, a position he had never played.Two knee injuries in two years would mean little to fans had the number on his back not been No. 22.The theory that injuries have shortened his last two seasons may hold weight, but those eyes ogling from the stands want to see a No. 1 recruit, not Evans’ 11 career goals and three assists.“People take the injury and say, ‘Well, he’s injured, he may not be that good,’” Evans said. “But I don’t see how that is something that you could combine an injury with.”Emma Comtois | Design EditorHe said he doesn’t read tweets and online comments, but Evans knows what people say. For as much external pressure as there is on Evans to get back, he’s also pressed himself to return. He, just like the fans, would like to see his old self, the one that was picked to take No. 22.In his two seasons at SU, the injuries have heaped pressure on to the already ever-present expectations. Sometimes, Evans has joked about giving up the number, taking another one and easing the weight, now two years old and growing, off his back.“I know nobody on this team would switch numbers, so sometimes I’m like, ‘You want to switch numbers with me?’ ‘Oh yeah, I’ll take No. 1 next year.’ And then I think of, that would be a huge story in itself,” Evans said. “Well now he doesn’t want the number, but then what if I’m a better player if I’m No. 1.“It’s just a jersey number. People just don’t realize that.”• • •When Evans rehabbed from injuries, former teammate Mike Messina was there to crack jokes and keep him positive. When Evans struggled with a position switch to defensive midfield, Messina helped Evans learn the position.After hurting his leg twice, Anthis said Evans started working out more to protect himself from another crushing injury. So when Evans got into the weight room, it was Messina helping him develop his habits.The junior works out six days per week, getting up at 8 a.m., arriving at the gym by 9:30 a.m. and sometimes stretching for an hour to prevent injury.Working out has become Evans’ pressure valve. During high school, Evans channeled the pressure of his recognition into doing things on the lacrosse field no one had ever seen before.I would laugh at myself, where if I did things that not a lot of people were able to do, that’s what eased the pressure, like, ‘Wow this is awesome.’But Evans hasn’t had that outlet the past two seasons. His lateral movement has been limited by injuries and a brace wired him to be a mechanical player.Messina pushed him to get into the weight room and to continually improve even if he couldn’t be on the field. Evans’ motivation was partially to earn the nickname “hammer,” Messina said, which was first given to JoJo Marasco, the No. 22 before Evans, for his prowess in the weight room and then passed to Messina.In addition to his lacrosse workouts, Evans started cross-fit training with Anthis two years ago at Anthis’ gym, Urban Life Athletics. Within three days of the 2014 season ending, Evans came into the gym and Anthis could see the frustration of Evans’ lost season, and he watched him burn off the disappointment.Evans asked Messina if he earned the moniker throughout the 2015 season, but the senior held off as long as he could.“Toward the end of the season,” Messina said, “I told him, ‘Hey man, you’re a hammer now.”In the NCAA tournament against Marist, the work Evans put in to earn the nickname converged with the work he did on the field. His knee brace’s removal unchained Evans from the turf.The result is saved on his television — he scored five goals for his first career multi-goal game.Evans discounts some of his production because to him it was just Marist and two goals were gifted to him, but he looked as comfortable as he ever has. A fake pass to Nick Weston drew one defender out of Evans’ shooting lane, allowing the latter to fire a laser into the top left corner.“I felt like, ‘OK, I can do these things and I’m not going to be afraid to shoot or dodge on people anymore,’” Evans said. “After that I was like, ‘I’m going to play lacrosse now.’”For so long, Anthis had watched Evans tentatively plant, but he and Wendi realized her son, even if only for a night, had returned.Logan Reidsma | Senior Staff PhotographerJordan Evans celebrates with Derek DeJoe (12) after scoring a goal against Marist in an NCAA tournament game on May 10, 2014. He had five on the night, a career-high.• • •In the last two years, Evans has talked to his mom mostly about classwork with lacrosse being a close second. She suspects it’s because it hurt to think about the sport he couldn’t play up to the expectations set for him. Recently, however, lacrosse has dominated the conversation.There are no injuries to keep him off the field. He’s no longer playing out of position. He doesn’t have to consult his brain how to defend.He’s gotten back to yelling when teammates score, laughing when someone is shook by a move and going crazy when someone stings a corner.“That’s the fun part of lacrosse,” Evans said. “People think you’re like a trash talker or something if you laugh when someone makes somebody fall, but that’s what I like to do.”The most fun part about playing attack to Evans, though, is the ride. He craves the opportunity to get the ball back after losing it, grabbing possession before the other team hits midfield. He believes that’s where the game is won.Evans’ first two seasons have been a misfire. As his career approaches midfield, he sees the opportunity to grab ahold of it again.

There’ll even be those that have to go away it and dedicate themselves to one thing else. The most affected belong to the group that’s among the many nice figures and juniors or semi-professionals.They’re the lower-middle class of tennis, those that want the reduction that they intend to provide all of them ranges of their sport, ATP, WTA, ITF and the 4 Grand Slams, with their Participant Assist Plan. His state of affairs explains it very nicely Toni Colom, coach who was current originally of Nadal and who’s now getting ready the doubles participant David Vega (25 years outdated and quantity 100 within the rating by pairs). “For individuals who at all times had bills, this isn’t going to have a lot affect. However Those that have made sure commitments to skilled environments and reside each month on the earnings that tennis supplies them, now that they’ve been reduce, are probably the most affected.
