Foreign visits at lowest in history in April as air travel suffers

first_imgForeign tourist visits dropped 87.44 percent year-on-year (yoy) in April to a record low level as the COVID-19 pandemic hits air travel hard, recent official data show.Central Statistics Agency (BPS) head Suhariyanto said foreign tourist visits reached 160,000 in April, a level unseen in history, as countries around the world impose different degrees of lockdowns or physical distancing measures to curb the spread of the coronavirus.“This shows that the impact of COVID-19 on tourism is tremendous and that we need to be careful about its impacts on supporting sectors, either on room occupancy rates, the transportation sector, the creative economy industry, trade and other things,” Suhariyanto told a livestreamed press briefing on Tuesday. Cumulatively between January and April, the number of foreign tourist visits was down 45.01 percent yoy to 2.77 million visits. Suhariyanto explained that the cumulative downturn was not as steep because the country still managed to attract foreign tourist arrivals in January for the New Year and Chinese New Year celebrations. BPS data show that the country still saw yoy growth of 5.86 percent to 1.27 million visits in January alone. Most of the foreign tourists visiting throughout the year came via air travel, which amounted to 1.6 million visits, meanwhile, the number of tourists entering via sea and land was recorded at over 640,000 and 517,000, respectively.“There was a drop in visits from tourists of almost all nationalities. But, for those from Timor Leste, the downturn was minimal as they can still travel overland,” Suhariyanto said. More than 50 percent of foreign tourists visiting the country in April came from Timor Leste, or over 83,500 visits. Tourists from Malaysia made up 38.96 percent, or over 62,300 visits, while 2,100 Singaporeans visited, making up 1.34 percent of all tourists during the month.Read also: Govt prepares strategies to revive domestic tourism during ‘new normal’Tourists from those three countries also reigned in foreign tourist visits between January and April, yet with a significantly lower proportion in the chart. Malaysian tourists made up 19.74 percent of the total visits, Timor Leste tourists 13.04 percent and Singaporeans 9.58 percent. A report by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) on the economic impact of the coronavirus that was published on March 2 writes that the cost of the tourism downturn will be severe.“If the spread of the coronavirus affects visitor numbers more widely across the major economies, there would be sizeable costs, with tourism accounting directly for 4.25 percent of GDP in the OECD economies and almost 7 percent of employment,” the report reads.In Indonesia, tourism accounts for around 5 percent of GDP, with the government planning to boost the sector’s contribution to the economy with the development of super-priority tourist destinations.Many businesses related to tourism in the country have closed, laying off 1.4 million employees while others have furloughed staff in the two months since physical distancing and stay-at-home measures were put in place.Topics : “We need to think of new solutions so that this sector [tourism] can recover in the future.”In April, only 755 people were recorded to have entered the country via air travel, making up the smallest portion of foreign tourist entries. The majority of visitors came via land transportation with over 112,700, and over 46,500 visitors arrived by sea.Read also: Tourism will take at least a year to recover from COVID-19 outbreak: Economists Suhariyanto said during the month that airports had seen the biggest decline in traffic in comparison to seaports and land ports. BPS data show that, aggregately, airports in the country had seen a 99.69 decline in visits during the period. Meanwhile, seaports saw a 56.67 percent decline, and land traffic dropped 5.88 percent. last_img read more

The Reds So Far

first_imgIt started out looking like the Reds were going to surprise everybody and contend this year.  Everybody wondered if the Reds top management was on the right track with their rebuilding.  After a quick start, the Reds struggled with their starting pitching.  The league quickly learned what the young pitchers are throwing, and that means the Reds young pitchers need to adjust how they throw to the hitters.Of course, the Reds will not have Bailey or DeScalfani until July at the earliest.  Ever since Bailey signed the big contract he has been injured.  I do think the Reds starting lineup is one that the Reds will be satisfied with for quite a few years.  Now it is time for the pitchers to do their part.last_img read more

Trump Fires National Security Adviser John Bolton

first_imgNational Security Adviser John Bolton is out.President Trump announced the firing via Twitter on Tuesday.Trump noted that he “disagreed strongly” with many of Bolton’s suggestions, “as did others” in the administration.….I asked John for his resignation, which was given to me this morning. I thank John very much for his service. I will be naming a new National Security Advisor next week.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 10, 2019 The president vowed to name a new national security adviser next week.He also thanked Bolton for his service.Bolton seemingly blindsided by Trump quickly responded to the news via Twitter saying that he offered to resign Monday evening.I offered to resign last night and President Trump said, “Let’s talk about it tomorrow.”— John Bolton (@AmbJohnBolton) September 10, 2019 However, Trump claims he had asked for Bolton’s resignation that night.One key area of disagreement between the two involved the future role of the U.S. military in Afghanistan.Bolton is not the first high-ranking Trump administration official to be ousted by the president via Twitter.In March of 2018, the President announced via Twitter that Mike Pompeo, the current director of the CIA, would replace Secretary Rex Tillerson at the State Department.In the summer of 2018, former FBI director James Comey was made aware of his firing during a speech he was giving at the FBI field office in Los Angeles.No other information is available at the time.last_img read more

Lowry, Raptors down Bucks, level East finals

first_imgTORONTO – – Kawhi Leonard carried the Toronto Raptors through most of the postseason. However, after Leonard played 52 minutes in Toronto’s double-overtime win on Sunday and was noticeably favouring his left leg, Raptors guard Kyle Lowry said teammates knew Leonard was limited Tuesday and that the rest of them “had to step up”.The Raptors did, especially Lowry, who scored 18 points in the first half to set the tone and he finished with 25 points as the Raptors defeated the visiting Milwaukee Bucks 120-102 to even the best-of-seven Eastern Conference finals at two games apiece.Game 5 is tonight in Milwaukee. The winner of the best-of-seven series will advance to meet the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals.“We have had to rely on (Leonard) so much, and when everybody steps up, it takes the load off him,” Lowry said.Raptors coach Nick Nurse added of Leonard’s health, “I mean, yeah, we were concerned. I think (Leonard) is fine. I think he’s – you know, he logged a lot of minutes. He’s certainly tired, like a lot of guys in this series are. You know, he looks okay to me.“I think there are a number of guys out there who aren’t 100 percent on both sides of the ball. But, again, he’s got tremendous will. He’s got tremendous desire, and there’s one time I was trying to give him an extended rest there, and he didn’t really want it. So he must be okay.”Leonard contributed 19 points and seven rebounds in 34 minutes.Norman Powell added 18 points off the bench for the Raptors. Serge Ibaka and Marc Gasol each scored 17 points, and Fred VanVleet had 13 points. Ibaka also grabbed 13 rebounds.Powell, Ibaka and VanVleet led a strong showing by Toronto’s bench that made the difference.“I’m going out there and trying to impact the game where I see that I can,” Powell said. “Just take what the defence is giving me and just stay confident in my reads. Just try to follow the game flow. We’re just playing for one another. We were talking to each other on different shots, different reads that are there.”Khris Middleton amassed 30 points, six rebounds and seven assists for the Bucks. Giannis Antetokounmpo added 25 points and 10 rebounds, and Nikola Mirotic contributed 11 points.“They did a great job on us defensively,” Middleton said. “They took advantage of some of our defensive coverages and just made shots. For the most part, they got anything they wanted. We’ve got to be better.”The Raptors led by as many as 16 points during the third quarter and had a 13-point margin entering the fourth.“I think defensively, just tonight didn’t feel like where we need to be defensively, as good as we need to be,” Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer said. “They got to good spots. They shared the ball. They passed it. They made open shots. They made some high-degree-of-difficulty shots, so that’s a bad combination. They’re making open looks, and then they’re making tough ones, too.”VanVleet sank a 3-pointer that bounced around the rim several times before dropping in, Ibaka knocked down a free throw, and Powell hit a one-footer to put Toronto ahead by 20 points with 8:35 to play in the game.last_img read more

MBB : Syracuse fails to find offensive rhythm in loss to Notre Dame

first_img Published on January 21, 2012 at 12:00 pm Contact Michael: mjcohe02@syr.edu | @Michael_Cohen13 Comments Facebook Twitter Google+center_img SOUTH BEND, Ind. — With 3:02 remaining, any doubt was erased from Scoop Jardine’s mind. This was just not Syracuse’s game.The senior point guard for the Orange sliced down the lane for a right-handed layup in a desperate attempt to keep the team’s perfect season intact. But after careening off the backboard, Jardine’s shot attempt hung on the rim momentarily.A made shot would have given Jardine a chance for a three-point play to cut the Notre Dame lead to seven. It would have kept some semblance of hope in a game where SU trailed by as many as 18.Instead, it fell cruelly off the rim, and he made only one free throw.‘It was one of those type of nights, you knew it,’ Jardine said. ‘That’s what I was thinking in my head. It’s one of those type of nights where it just didn’t drop for me.’AdvertisementThis is placeholder textJardine’s struggles were representative of the entire Syracuse team during Saturday’s 67-58 loss to Notre Dame on the road at the Joyce Center. The Orange (20-1, 7-1 Big East) shot its worst percentage all season — 34 percent — and failed to find any rhythm offensively against a Fighting Irish defense that limited transition opportunities. And on a night in which Notre Dame (12-8, 4-3) was highly efficient, SU simply couldn’t keep up.Not even three minutes into the game, Syracuse was faced with its largest deficit of the season. Before Saturday, the Orange trailed by eight points on the road at North Carolina State — a game Syracuse rallied back to win.But after missing three of its first four shots of the game, SU found itself behind 11-2 at the 17:22 mark of the first half. Jardine missed a layup off the opening tip, Kris Joseph missed a makeable short jumper and C.J. Fair couldn’t connect on a contested jumper from the left elbow.All that coming after a warm-up session in which Dion Waiters said the team was ‘hitting everything.’‘Coming out for the first half, everybody felt pretty good about shooting,’ Waiters said. ‘Then we get out there, and nothing wanted to fall in the basket. The ball was going in and out.’Compounding the problem for the Orange was Notre Dame’s ability to limit fast-break points. So many times this year Syracuse has run its opponents out of the gym by forcing turnovers defensively and with superior athleticism at the other end.And though SU forced 17 turnovers on Saturday, it managed a startling zero fast-break points.‘Even when we got out, they got back — at least one guy back and we couldn’t convert,’ junior guard Brandon Triche said.That was the case in the first half when Triche missed a jumper at the 11:42 mark. He snagged a long defensive rebound and raced down court in an attempt to reach the basket on the right side. But standing in his path was Scott Martin, who forced Triche into a contested short jumper — he missed.Later in the first half, Jardine saw his lob pass to Fair broken up as the sophomore forward was fouled in midair by Martin. A thunderous dunk could have turned the momentum late in the first half with Syracuse trailing 32-16. Instead, Martin’s defense yielded only a split pair of free throws.‘Opening half I thought we had some good shots, some good looks,’ SU head coach Jim Boeheim said. ‘We couldn’t get anything to go down, and when you don’t make anything, it’s very difficult.’Trailing by double-digits at halftime, the Orange was forced to turn to the perimeter in the second half. A 4-of-13 shooting performance from beyond the arc in the first half became worse in the second: 3-of-10.Trailing by eight with 2:54 to go, Triche and Waiters began forcing the issue to no avail. The pair missed three consecutive 3s in a span of 1:20 as the undefeated season drifted away.Waiters missed on a pull-up from just left of the circle. Triche missed from an identical spot on the floor two possessions later. And Waiters missed again from the right side.‘When you’re making shots, it gets you energized,’ Jardine said. ‘And tonight we didn’t make enough shots.’So by the time James Southerland finally connected on a 3 with 53 seconds left, cutting the lead to just six, it was too little too late. The highest scoring offense in the Big East had finally stalled.‘This was an offensive game,’ Boeheim said. ‘We didn’t play very well, and they did.’mjcohe02@syr.edu last_img read more

We have never had a non-compliance breach, but we’ve seen competitors being fined big numbers and that creates uncertainty.”A leading online casino operator with Nordic Markets, ComeOn has operated as a UKGC licensed incumbent since 2014.In 2017, ComeOn would be acquired outright by Swedish investor Cherry AB, transforming the operator into its lead B2C vertical. Nevertheless, a tough integration of assets would see Cherry undertake a restructuring of operations during the course of 2018.Under the guidance of Cherry AB, a reformed ComeOn has moved to recently launch new ‘instant-play’ online casino properties Blitzino (Germany) and Hajper (Sweden), as the company explores further opportunities within Denmark and Poland.“At the same time, the UK-license has lost its symbolic value. Before you almost had to have one to be looked upon as a credible company.

Charles Barkley visits Angels as one of Joe Maddon’s guest speakers

first_img Angels’ poor pitching spoils an Albert Pujols milestone He was more assured in his opinion that Mike Trout easily is the best player in baseball. Barkley said he even bought into the hype that Trout might one day join Bryce Harper and the Phillies in free agency before Trout signed his extension with the Angels.“That was a shocker to our system,” Barkley said, speaking for all Phillies fans. “Like I say, I’m just hearing (expletive) and when Bryce came to town, that’s all he talked about. I’m glad (Trout) is going to spend his whole career (with the Angels), though. I really am.”ALSOCatcher Jason Castro switched from uniform No. 15 to No. 16 this week, saying his wife and a couple of friends reminded him about Angels’ history. “Just a sign of respect to Tim Salmon,” the Stanford alum said. “I didn’t want to be the first one to wear (the number) since and break the streak. No. 16 is a good number too.” Castro used a Sharpie marker to change the 15 on his game shoes to a 16. …After a few members of the Chicago media came to Angels camp over the weekend, Maddon again met with Chicago writers before Monday’s game, with the gathering taking place near the Cubs’ dugout. Maddon, who was the Cubs manager for five seasons, was well received by the large crowd at Sloan Park before, during and after the game. “(Manager) David (Ross) and I have been in touch, and a couple of their coaches. I’m pretty much in contact with these guys. It’s not even one year removed and I have a lot of respect for all of that.” “You know what it’s like when you walk in the clubhouse. You feel the vibe, you feel the energy in the clubhouse or you don’t. And you can’t tell me one time that you did not feel energy when you were around a good team. So guys like Charles coming in is outstanding.”Barkley lives in the Phoenix area in the winter and in Philadelphia in the summer, meeting Maddon and his Cubs’ players a few years ago at a Phillies game. Barkley was asked about Maddon’s approach to management.“I like his leadership style, I like his personality more … and we both hate analytics,” Barkley said.Perhaps “hate” was a strong word. Barkley moved to clarify.“When I say I hate analytics, I think there’s a place for those, but you can’t measure your heart,” Barkley said. “Nothing can measure your heart or your toughness. I’ll just use a guy like (Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher) Madison Bumgarner. There’s nothing analytical about that man. He’s just a stud. If you look at Mike Trout or Albert Pujols, they are two of the best ever to do it. I don’t know what they would figure into the analytics if they were coming up today. “… It’s like in the NBA. Everyone is trying to do what the (Golden State) Warriors do. And it works if you have Kevin Durant, Steph (Curry) and Klay (Thompson). And not Manny, Moe and Jack.”At that, Barkley surveyed his audience before he was assured that his reference was well received and that Pep Boys commercials were indeed national.Related Articles Angels offense breaks out to split doubleheader with Astros Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield center_img Angels’ Mike Trout working on his defense, thanks to Twitter Jose Suarez’s rocky start sinks Angels in loss to Astros MESA, Ariz. — It was an eventful Monday morning for the Angels, who had a visitor from the basketball world, who was more than willing to talk baseball when he wasn’t taking swings with a golf club.Charles Barkley was invited to the Angels’ clubhouse on Monday morning to shake hands, take pictures and tell stories. Barkley even joined the team’s morning meeting on the field and participated in a quick chip shot shootout in the outfield, showing off something of a revision to his often-ridiculed, choppy golf swing.Known for bringing in visitors and select sideshows when he managed the Chicago Cubs, new Angels skipper Joe Maddon thought a visit from Barkley would help with the monotony of spring training. The midway point is when the days start to run into each other, when sometimes the only way to realize it’s the weekend is because the morning traffic is light.“It’s energy and enthusiasm,” Maddon said. “If we can do something daily that increases or adds to our energy or enthusiasm, I’ll take it.
