Syahril Parlindungan, who allegedly sexual assaulted dozens of altar boys of St. Herkulanus Church in Depok, West Java, “systematically” molested kids for decades and abused his power as the boys’ mentor to silence them, the victims’ lawyer has said.Lawyer Azas Tigor Nainggolan said Syahril had been molesting the altar boys since 2002.”He would slowly seduce several potential victims at the same time by, for example, holding their hands, before eventually assaulting them. None of the victims dared to speak up because the perpetrator had manipulated them using his power as their mentor at the church,” Tigor told The Jakarta Post on Thursday. The lawyer added that Syahril molested his victims not only in the church’s library, but also in his house and car.Read also: Depok case shines light on sexual abuse in Indonesian Catholic ChurchThe police detained Syahril after receiving reports from several parents of his “suspicious behavior” of kissing, hugging and putting the boys on his lap. Some parents also claimed that he verbally bullied the kids.At least 21 boys spoke up during an internal investigation launched by the church administrators and parents to say the 42-year-old man had molested them. Two victims later reported the incidents to the police, who then detained and charged him under the 2014 Child Protection Law, which carries a maximum sentence of 15 years’ imprisonment.The police investigation further revealed that Syahril had been abusing altar boys aged 11 to 15 since 2002. The National Commission on Human Rights (Komnas HAM) opened a complaint service to gather information from more alleged victims regarding the sexual assault carried out by Syahril.Topics :

UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin believes that French football’s 2019/20 season was prematurely brought to an end and he doesn’t think a decision needed to be made when it was. Ligue 1 has been brought to a close with Paris Saint-Germain declared champions, but both PSG and Lyon are still standing in the Champions League. “The decision [to cancel the season] was premature,” Ceferin said. “It’s my personal opinion that it was suspended too soon, and it’s not ideal because things can improve and play can return. “But it’s a decision for the governments, and what can the clubs do? Only respect the decision.” Ceferin’s frustration largely stems from PSG and Lyon’s continued participation in European competition. “We have two French clubs in the Champions League,” he added, “and now they’re not going to play until August. “I don’t know if not playing tough and competitive matches is good for the teams. “Games will have to be played in France or a neutral country. “They didn’t consult us because the decision was made by different organisations in France, but I don’t see why French authorities are prohibiting games without fans.” Read Also: Uruguayan forward may not leave PSG this summer “It doesn’t seem as though the calendar [for next season] will be affected much,” Ceferin explained. “There isn’t much room to change things and I think everything will remain the same. “Some think it’ll start a little later, but only a few days.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Loading…

Here are the design words found in a press release from Michigan State describing the editing mechanisms of the cell DNA-to-RNA transcription process: high fidelity, quality control, inner workings, genetic coding, exquisite nanotechnology in living systems, genetic control, blueprint for life, industrial assembly line, conveyor belt, preloading, criteria, backs up to correct the error, sensed and corrected, acceptable level of error required for the speed at which cells must reproduce, elegance of cell creation, fidelity mechanism, tried and true design, and enduring design. Here are the words in the press release describing the evolution of this system: [null]. The aspect of transcription that so impressed the researchers was the ability of RNA polymerase (the main transcription machine) to preload bases before need: “Preloading of NTPs [nucleoside triphosphates, the “letters” of RNA code] hints at a previously unknown quality control station to maintain accuracy of RNA synthesis,” the article states (emphasis added in all quotes). “We’re able to show how an error will be sensed and corrected,” said Team member Zachary Burton. “The quality control system checks NTP loading several ways. If it doesn’t match the criteria, it gets booted out.” Details of the research were published in Molecular Cell.1 Another statement by Burton encapsulated the tone of their study: “RNA polymerase is one of nature’s great designs.”1Gong et al., “Dynamic Error Correction and Regulation of Downstream Bubble Opening by Human RNA Polymerase II,” Molecular Cell, Volume 18, Issue 4, 13 May 2005, Pages 461-470, doi:10.1016/j.molcel.2005.04.011This is how science should be done. No useless Darwinspeak, just careful analysis of design when design is evident. Neither the formal paper nor the press release contained any mention of evolution. Instead, the language of design was shown to be both useful and appropriate in a purely scientific discussion. By the way, the research focused on human RNA polymerase. The press release was titled, “High fidelity keeps human DNA assembly line humming.” All that quality control is on your assembly line, keeping you humming. Need a tune to hum?

Informal collectors make a valuable contribution to the environment. (Image: Sapro) The survey revealed that 29% of all South Africa’s plastic packaging is recycled. (Image: Shamin Chibba) MEDIA CONTACTS • Annabe Pretorius South African Plastic Recycling Organisation +27 83 654 8967RELATED ARTICLES • Ethiopian tread shoes a hit • New solutions for water conservation • Recycle that old mobile • Using waste to save the world • E-waste pilot project deliversShamin ChibbaThe plastic recycling industry is having a positive impact on job creation in the country, according to a recent announcement by the South African Plastic Recycling Organisation (Sapro).The claim was made in Sapro’s first annual plastics recycling survey, which was conducted in collaboration with the South African Plastics Federation and released in July 2011. The study covers a four-year period to the end of 2009.Among a host of findings, the survey indicated that the recycling industry is now responsible for more than 39 000 workers.According to Sapro general manager Annabe Pretorius, recyclers employ as many as 4 800 workers directly and a further 35 000 indirectly. This brings the industry’s annual payroll to R250-million (US$32-million).She explained that indirect jobs include the self-employed informal collectors who pick, sort and pack the plastics, as well as the drivers who transport the recyclable materials.Surveyors interviewed 193 recycling manufacturers around the country and visited up to 175 sites.“The bulk of the survey was done in the greater Gauteng, KwaZulu-Natal and Western Cape areas,” said Pretorius.Public’s environmental awareness increasingAccording to the survey, the public’s attitude towards recycling has changed for the better over the years, with more people wanting to be involved.Researchers recorded a 32% increase in the volume of plastic recycled between 2005 and 2009.Pretorius said environmental awareness is greatest among the middle and upper classes of South Africa.However, this does not mean the lower income groups are oblivious to recycling trends. Pretorius said this group re-uses materials such as plastic shopping and rubbish bags that are discarded by higher earning consumers.To increase awareness, Pretorius said school groups and mass cleaning campaigns are essential.One of the major drives hosted by the industry is Clean up South Africa Week, which took place in September 2011 and encouraged people to clean up public spaces.She said approximately 1 000 people cleaned up beaches along the country’s coastline.Rory Murray, marketing director of recycled refuse bags manufacturer Tuffy Brands, said consumers can do their bit by choosing products that are recycled from a high percentage of “post-consumer” waste.Such products contain materials that were thrown away after being used, taken out of the environment by recyclers and subsequently recycled to be used again.“We physically take out of the environment and reuse it, so essentially it’s cutting down on rubbish that ends up in a landfill site,” Murray said.He added that consumers can check the labels of the products they buy to make sure they have been recycled from high percentage post-consumer waste.Murray added that consumers should be wary of products claiming to be 100% recycled as they are actually taken from “pre-consumer” waste. This is waste which is not taken out of the environment. He said this procedure does not make a difference to the preservation of the planet.SA leading in recyclingDuring the survey period, 165 772 tons or 29% of all plastic packaging was recycled. Almost 50% of the recyclable materials were obtained from post-consumer sources such as landfills.These statistics indicate that South Africa’s recycling market is well developed. “At 18%, our country’s mechanical recycling rate is the highest in the world,” said Pretorius.Mechanical recycling is when a used product is recycled to make another product.By comparison, Europe’s mechanical recycling rate is between nine and 11%. This is because most of their recyclables are incinerated to produce energy and not to make new products.“The products South Africa makes from recycled material goes back into thin film materials,” said Pretorius. These include shopping and rubbish bags.Benefits of recyclingAlthough sceptics believe recycling uses up more energy than other methods of waste management, Pretorius gives valid reasons why recycling should become a daily part of life.She said petroleum, from which plastic is made, is a resource that we should stretch as far as we can. This would reduce the need to manufacture more plastic than is needed.“The material has energy, so why waste it?” she said.She also said that with South Africa running out of landfill space, it is sensible to rely on recycling.According to the survey, recycling a ton of waste has twice the economic impact compared to landfills. It pays R1 095 ($141) per ton more in salaries, produces R4 905 ($629) more in goods and services, and generates R1.3-million ($166 895) more in sales.The only time recycling can have a harmful impact on the environment, Pretorius said, is when consumers drive long distances to drop off waste and emit carbon monoxide through the use of cars.ChallengesThough recycling awareness is on the rise, Pretorius said there is still work that needs to be done to get people into the habit of recycling.“Consumers have to be trained to separate recyclable waste and non-recyclable waste. This has to be practised at home,” she said.Recyclers are feeling the pinch as electricity costs are too high, making operations more expensive than before.If the efforts of Sapro and South African Plastics Federation don’t pay off, Pretorius said that at least 34 500 families who rely on a collector’s income will suffer, 400 companies linked to the recycling industry will not be able to conduct business, prices for products such as refuse bags and irrigation piping will increase, and municipalities will eventually run out of landfill space.To overcome these challenges, the survey indicated that the recycling industry must recover the highest percentage of used materials at the lowest cost.This can only be achieved if the recycling industry takes the initiative when dealing with plastic industry forums to ensure that their expertise and equipment is used to everyone’s benefit; when recyclers partner with serious role-players to create awareness; and when recyclers approach government professionally so they are taken seriously.
