Indonesia’s gross domestic product (GDP) is expected to shrink even further than projected in the third quarter as capital city Jakarta reimposes large-scale social restrictions (PSBB), Finance Minister Sri Mulyani Indrawati said Tuesday.The government previously expected the economy to post a flat growth at best or a contraction of 2.1 percent at worst in July-September, but the partial lockdown reimplemented by Jakarta is likely to drag down GDP to the lower end of the prediction, she told reporters in a virtual briefing.“The economic impact will not be as bad” as the first PSBB because Jakarta still allowed offices to remain open with 25 percent capacity, she went on to say. “This will be very different compared to March and April, when people’s activity stopped.”The government will monitor social mobility data, among other things, in the next two weeks to assess the country’s GDP performance in the third quarter, she said, warning that economic activity might contract more than the current estimate.Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan is requiring non-essential industries to have their employees work from home, residents to limit the use of public transportation and restaurants to prohibit dine-ins starting Monday following a spike in the coronavirus infection rate in the capital in recent days.Jakarta has recorded a daily average of around 1,000 new cases this month and registered more than 55,000 infections and 1,440 deaths from COVID-19 since the pandemic began in March, official data show. The city implemented a stricter PSBB in April and relaxed it in the so-called transitional PSBB in June before cases started to spike even higher than before.The capital city contributed the most to the national economy compared to other regions in the country as Jakarta’s regional domestic product accounted for 17.17 percent of the country’s GDP in the second quarter, Jakarta Statistics Indonesia (BPS) data show. It was followed by East Java (14.6 percent) and West Java (13.45 percent), both also virus epicenters.Indonesia’s economy shrank by 5.32 percent in the second quarter and is widely expected to shrink further in the third quarter, which would mark the first recession since the 1998 Asian financial crisis.“The economy may return to a growth of 0.4 percent to 3.1 percent in the fourth quarter but it will heavily depend on the management of the coronavirus pandemic,” Sri Mulyani said, expecting a 1.1 percent contraction for the full year at worst, or 0.2 percent growth at best.Topics :

Chris Chavannes, who coaches Kuminga at noted prep program Patrick School, pointed out some of the obstacles facing the highly touted prospect in the number 1 jersey during a workout.“He comes from a place where there was not as much talent and where it was not as intense, so he must integrate our demands, physical and mental,” Chavannes said.“But he loves basketball, so the transition will not be so difficult for him.”Kuminga has the frame, according to Al Harrington, who is among the few players to make the leap directly from high school to the NBA.“Physically, he already has the body to play in university or in the NBA,” Harrington said.“It’s very rare to see such a combination, a guy of his size able to dribble quickly and post himself” Chavannes added.At ease with the ball and patient as plays develop, the young Congolese student can become fearsome in transition, although he is still working to perfect his shooting touch.Since arriving in the United States from the Democratic Republic of Congo at age 13, Kuminga has had a chaotic journey, attending four high schools in as many years.Several members of his family live nearby, but Kuminga has not seen his parents since departing his homeland.“I am still a kid, so I miss them,” said Kuminga, whose older brother, Joel Ntambwe, played US college basketball at Texas Tech University in Lubbock.The cost of a trip back to Africa and a visa issue prevent a reunion with his parents or joining his homeland’s national team, whose jersey he has never worn.Nevertheless, with the 2021 AfroBasket tournament on the horizon he is on the radar of Congolese federation manager Joe Nkoi.“We are following him closely,” Nkoi said. “We give ourselves time.”– Possible top pick –Since last year, “Jon” has been considered a possible top pick in the 2022 NBA Draft, becoming eligible for the selection process one year after his high school class graduates.“With his talent, he could be number one in the NBA draft,” said his cousin, Utah Jazz star Emmanuel Mudiay, who is also from DR Congo.While the NBA has discussed changing the rules to allow direct moves from the high school ranks to the NBA – something unseen in 15 years – any change is unlikely to come in time to prevent Kuminga from having to spend a year in college basketball.Congolese teen Jonathan Kuminga, considered a top prospect for the 2022 NBA Draft, practices at Patrick School in Hillside New JerseyRead Also: Clippers land Morris for playoff push at NBA trade deadline“He has his feet on the ground so much that it makes everything very easy for him. He does not get distracted,” Chavannes said.And helping him stay on track, Patrick alumni like Harrington and Brooklyn Nets star Kyrie Irving sometimes drop by workouts and pass along advice.“We foreigners who come from far away come with a goal,” Mudiay said. “His is to go to the NBA.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 At 17, Kuminga waits for his moment in a small establishment in Hillside, New Jersey, 30km southwest of New York. He might be a millionaire in a matter of years, but for now, the 6-foot-6 (2.03m) playmaker spends most of his time in a modest red brick building, studying and training. Loading… He will not finish high school until 2021, but Congolese teen Jonathan Kuminga is already considered by some to be the young player who most interests the NBA.Advertisement

Ripley County, In. — Mary Brown, a double major in junior elementary education and special education at Ball State University Milan, Indiana, is in Florida until March 2 to research manatees, seahorses and sea turtles for the Conservation Tales, a series of books for children grades 3-5 that features an endangered, threatened or vulnerable species or groups of species.Brown’s role on the diverse team of 12 students includes helping write the books at the correct reading levels and both developing and representing the characters accurately.The project is one of the university’s immersive learning projects. These efforts bring together interdisciplinary, student-driven teams guided by faculty mentors to create high-impact learning experiences. Through immersive learning, students earn credit for working collaboratively with businesses, nonprofits, and government agencies to address community challenges.The team is led by Ball State biologist and author of the series Tom McConnell and art professor Barbara Giorgio-Booher. Books about warblers, bats and salamanders are already part of the series, and this research trip will result in three new books about manatees, seahorses and sea turtles. The series was created by McConnell to help students grades 3-5 understand endangered animals and the importance of protecting these species.“The collaboration across majors is by far the best experience. I am learning more about art and what truly goes into creating a book than I ever thought that I would,” Brown said. “If not for this class, I would never have been able to collaborate with such talented individuals” To learn more about the Conservation Tales project click here.
