KUALA LUMPUR: The Malaysian Health Ministry has proposed that interstate travel be postponed for the upcoming Hari Raya Aidilfitri, as daily COVID-19 cases continue to rise. Speaking after a ministry event on Thursday (Apr 15), Health Minister Adham Baba said the proposal to put off approval for interstate travel was due to two reasons. “One, there are new variants of COVID-19 in the community. Two, the vaccination programme is still ongoing, so we need to control the situation,” he said. He noted that many parties have appealed to the government to permit interstate travel for this major festival. On whether exceptions could be made for those who have completed their vaccination, Dr Adham said the ministry was still waiting for findings from the World Health Organisation and the US' Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). If the ministry’s proposal to halt cross-state travel for the upcoming Hari Raya celebrations is accepted, this will be the second year ... » Learn More about Malaysian Health Ministry proposes that interstate travel be postponed for Hari Raya

Iran has begun producing uranium at 60 percent purity and is making nine grams per hour, the head of the Islamic republic's atomic agency said on Friday. "The enrichment of uranium to 60 percent is underway at the Martyr Ahmadi Roshan nuclear facility" in Natanz, Ali Akbar Salehi of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran said, quoted by Tasnim news agency. "We are now getting nine grams (almost a third of an ounce) per hour," Salehi said later on state television. Iran announced this week that it would boost its uranium enrichment to 60 percent purity in response to an attack Sunday on the Natanz nuclear facility that it blamed on arch-foe Israel. The move takes Iran closer to the 90 percent purity level needed for use in a nuclear weapon. The Islamic republic has gradually rolled back its nuclear commitments since 2018, when then US president Donald Trump withdrew from a multilateral deal and began imposing sanctions. The 2015 deal known formally as the Joint ... » Learn More about Iran says production of 60% enriched uranium ‘underway’
THE Philippines has set a 75-percent greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction and avoidance target by 2030, according to the Department of Finance (DoF). In a statement on Friday, the DoF said the goal was set following President Rodrigo Duterte’s approval of the country’s first Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC), which is part of the Philippines’ commitment to the Paris Agreement on Climate Change. “The Philippines is submitting an ambitious NDC target of 75-percent reduction of GHG emissions by 2030 in the name of climate justice. The NDC will be our tool to upgrade our economy by adopting modern and low carbon technologies and approaches that would help mitigate the climate crisis and make our economy more resilient and our growth sustainable,” Finance Secretary Carlos Dominguez 3rd was quoted as saying. Dominguez is also the chairman-designate to the Climate Change Commission, which facilitated the NDC formulation process. The finance department explained the NDC ... » Learn More about PH sets 75% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions
The short answer is “No.” Simply because sports betting cannot exist without sports. However, when the betting becomes bigger than the sports event, that’s when it gets shady. The Pilipinas VisMin Cup was supposed to give the long-unemployed players another chance, not to mention provide exposure to the aspiring players from the South. Very noble intentions. This was probably the best time for the VisMin Cup to open since the other leagues are still in the freezer. There is no PBA, no MPBL and no college leagues. The Siquijor Mystics have a quirky name, but unfortunately, that was all they had going for them. While I admit, most of the players in the league rosters are not familiar to me, the Mystics are a notch below. It may sound harsh and unfair, but there is a possibility that the Mystics actually formed a team just to make money from the odds. That sounds sad, but the game itself was strong evidence. There were also talks about the VisMin Cup’s questionable ownership. The ... » Learn More about Will betting destroy sports?
