The supervisory council for the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) has finished drafting a renewed ethical code for the anti-graft body, which values include synergy with other institutions. Supervisory council chairman Tumpak Hatorangan Panggabean said that the synergy was in line with the new KPK Law, which was passed in October. The law stipulates partnership, coordination, supervision and joint operations with other national institutions.Previously, the KPK values included religiosity, integrity, justice, professionalism and leadership.“[Adding the] synergy as the latest value does not mean that we will compromise,” Tumpak said on Thursday, as quoted from tempo.co.The synergy will underlie information, knowledge and data sharing with other institutions, with exceptions for confidential information.

Any ethical violations within the council are to be settled in the KPK’s ethical code honorary council.KPK chairman Firli Bahuri said that the new code had been approved by the leaders and would be submitted to the Law and Human Rights Ministry for approval.The supervisory council, which was established through the new KPK Law, was also in charge of granting wiretapping, confiscation and raid permits and has the power to veto, which have been criticized by anti-corruption watchdogs for potentially slowing down investigations.In the recent investigation for an alleged bribe case involving General Elections Commission (KPU) commissioner Wahyu Setiawan and Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDI-P) politician Harun Masiku, the council was also criticized for delaying the raid permits issuance and lack of transparency.

The remaining 17.5% was owned by New Zealand-based Equity Partners Infrastructure Company (EPIC), which announced over the summer it was discussing the sale of its stake to an undisclosed bidder.In a statement to shareholders, EPIC said the sale resulted in a “very good” valuation but declined to disclose a price.In March 2012, EPIC has NZD92m (€56.5m) in assets under management, with its stake in Moto its only asset.At the end of March, USS had 21.4% in private market assets, including infrastructure, property and inflation-linked debt.It returned 17.9% over the course of the 2014-15 financial year.In July, it announced it entered a £130m direct inflation swap deal with Yorkshire Water, building on its past activities with regulated utilities that saw it in 2013 provide £100m in debt to Affinity Water.Its other infrastructure holdings include a stake in London’s Heathrow Airport and part of the rail line connecting Australian city Brisbane with its airport. The £49bn (€66.9bn) Universities Superannuation Scheme (USS) has acquired the UK’s largest motorway service station operator for an undisclosed sum.USS said in a statement it reached two separate, definitive agreements that will see it acquire a 100% stake in Moto Hospitality, which comes only a few months after the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority and the Ontario Municipal Employees Retirement System were part of a consortium to buy Germany’s Tank & Rast.The acquisition of Moto comes after reports that Australian infrastructure fund manager Macquarie, the previous majority owner, was looking to liquidate its stake, bought in 2006 as part of a £1.8bn sale of the company.The UK’s largest pension fund said it acquired a 82.5% stake in Moto from an unnamed group of institutional investors.

He still thinks that honour should be bestowed upon Alex Ferguson’s treble-winning United side in 1999. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer isn’t ready to call Liverpool the Premier League’s greatest ever team Solskjaer scored the dramatic late winner against Bayern Munich in the Champions League final that year to cap United’s incredible campaign. Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool are on course for a historic season of their own, holding a huge lead in the Premier League as they chase a first English league title since 1990. They remain in the FA Cup and face Atletico Madrid in the last 16 next month as they try to defend their Champions League crown. But Solskjaer believes Liverpool have to demonstrate the ability to keep winning year after year before they deserve to be ranked alongside United’s best outfits. “I would say our 1999 team was the best, but let’s see when the season has finished,” Solskjaer said. “That showed we as a squad could cope with three tournaments. It was an amazing season, an amazing group, the personalities, the camaraderie. “I’m sure Liverpool can win all three, so I’m not going to say yes or no, but let’s see in May. “You have to do it again and again and again and Sir Alex is the only manager who has won it three times. “He had an exceptional way of motivating us and getting us ready, a way of just letting trophies be trophies, win them and move forward.” – ‘The spirit is there’ – After so many years of watching United rule English football, it now appears to be Liverpool’s turn again. As United manager, Solskjaer would not want to admit to copying their Merseyside rivals, but he would love to create a side like Klopp’s high-energy unit.

And we are more confident now, definitely.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Loading… He believes he has taken the first steps to doing so, but more time is needed to complete the job. “I can see a time when we have a team like Liverpool. The spirit is there, they are humble and they want to improve and that is a great starting point and foundation,” he said. “We know we need to sign a few players, but that’s the club and we all understand that. “We look at when Jurgen took over at Liverpool and he finished eighth in his first season so this is our first season together. “Of course we want to build step by step, and layer by layer and in the end you can just send them out without having to wait until Saturday to do the last preparations because you know what they are able to do. “If you look at Liverpool now with their front three, they all understand each other so they understand when he moves there and him there they drop and rotate. That’s where we want to get to but that takes time.” The 1-1 draw between the sides at Old Trafford in October is the only Premier League game Liverpool have not won so far this season. But Solskjaer is drawing confidence from how United acquitted themselves that day when they were at a low ebb as they travel to Anfield on Sunday.

Derek Giltner, 27 years old of Brookville, passed away Wednesday, May 13, 2020. An East Central High School 2011 graduate, Derek was a vibrant young man who loved to play and have a good time. Growing up he enjoyed playing football, baseball, and track and, in high school, focused on soccer. His soccer talents took him to Holland to play in the Friendship games. He loved to be outside hunting and fishing or riding dirt bikes and quads about anywhere he could get away with it. Derek shared a love of music with his dad, Rick, and enjoyed watching his dad’s band play around town. They loved to go to concerts together and saw Alice Cooper, Motley Crew and Cheap Trick just to name a few. He loved making silly videos with his brother Jake. He thoroughly enjoyed scaring people and would patiently wait for hours for the perfect moment to grab and scare the heck out of someone. He was very specific about the treats he wanted and always made sure his mom had them on every grocery list…Flamin’ Hot Doritos, Oreos, cereal, and peanut butter & jelly snacks could always be found on that list. Another favorite that couldn’t be found at the grocery store was his cousin Hannah’s famous chocolate peanut butter milkshakes. He made going to the Cyclones game for his birthday a tradition. He rooted for the Green Bay Packers. He would help others in an instant. But his biggest love was for his nieces, River & Reign. He was the perfect uncle that would take them fishing, play with them in the creek, pick on them, and, of course, wrestle with them.Derek will be deeply missed by his parents Pat & Rick of Brookville, brothers Jake of Aurora, Ryan of Brookville, and Aaron of Brookville; his grandparents Cliff & Suzanne Giltner of Bright and Rene Fette of New Alsace; his nieces River & Reign Giltner and many aunts, uncles and cousins. Derek is preceded in death by his grandpa Ray Fette and great-grandma Lucille Miller.Visitation for Derek will be on Sunday, May 17, from 2:00pm – 4:00pm at Andres-Wuestefeld Funeral Home.

Bruce is certainly interested in Long, who travelled to Hull by private jet on deadline day in the summer only for the Baggies to pull the plug, but insists there is nothing concrete as yet and is unhappy with inaccuracies being spread. “First and foremost I really want to try and apologise to West Brom as a club, nothing has come from us and the same goes for another ‘bid’ for another striker. We haven’t bid for anyone yet,” he said. “I don’t mind speculation but I would be disappointed if I was manager of West Brom or Sunderland because it’s simply not true. “The way Twitter is, the way the media is, it happens. But to be so far wide of the mark is ridiculous and it causes us a big problem because we’ve spent half the morning apologising to the respective clubs and we’ve got nothing to do with it. “Two days before Long it was an £18million for Fletcher, another load of nonsense. What can I do but sit here and apologise to everyone concerned?” Despite Bruce’s frustration, he will surely be making contact before the window expires about Republic of Ireland international Long. He was hugely frustrated when Albion pulled out of the deal last time and is still firmly in the market for a centre forward. But the issue was muddied slightly by tweets attributed to Long’s wife Kayleah, suggesting he would not be leaving the Midlands club. In a message on her account, she said: “Not going anywhere! Told Shane happy here & with baby on way it not worth the stress when still in contract! He agreed?? #happydays.” Bruce added: “Make no mistake I’m not one for Twitter, it’s not on my scene. But we’d all be lying if we said our wives didn’t have an influence. “But there’s been a lot of talk about Shane because we were close in the summer. “We have a couple of irons in the fire but at the moment we haven’t made any bids for any players. “The window’s only been open a week so let’s see how things develop in the next few weeks.” Hull skipper Curtis Davies was more forthright about the position Long may soon find himself in, suggesting a player’s long-term future was the primary concern when potential transfers were being discussed. “It’s between Shane Long and his missus,” said the central defender. “I wouldn’t have my missus telling me what to do. This is football. What I would say to any wife or girlfriend is ‘this is what’s paying the bills’. “If this is the right move for him and this is the right contract, I’d say she’d have to move because that’s what’s best for him and his family. “Would she rather stay in Birmingham hoping for a new deal or would you rather go somewhere else and get a three or four-year contract?” The only transfer activity so far at the KC Stadium has seen winger Cameron Stewart depart for Leeds, while Bruce remains open to offers for fringe men such as Aaron McLean, Nick Proschwitz, Gedo and Matty Fryatt. Bruce, meanwhile, revealed that defender Paul McShane will be missing for up to a month after injuring his ankle in the FA Cup third-round victory over Middlesbrough on Saturday. “Paul is out for three to four weeks. He turned his ankle badly at Boro and he’s not in the picture,” he said. With the January transfer window now open, speculation is rife over potential deals involving Barclays Premier League sides, but Bruce insists recent reports about the Tigers’ hunt for a striker have been wide of the mark. There were suggestions earlier this week that Bruce had lodged a bid for Sunderland’s Scotland international Fletcher, while the club issued a formal statement on Thursday morning dismissing reports that West Brom’s Long – who was close to becoming a Hull player in September – was due in East Yorkshire for a medical after terms had been agreed. Steve Bruce has apologised to West Brom and Sunderland for reports linking his club Hull with moves for Shane Long and Steven Fletcher. Press Association
Fertility clinics across the nation are struggling with a growing number of embryos abandoned by couples who successfully conceived and don’t need the rest of their fertilized eggs. This, however, presents an ethical dilemma, what to do with the life forms?Dr. Craig Sweet, who heads a fertility clinic in Fort Myers, Florida, says one in five embryos has been left in limbo.Often it’s because patients have been successful on their journeys to become parents, but sometimes it’s because storage fees for embryos can cost $1000 a year.Dr. Sweet thousands of embryos are left in the cold freeze at more than 500 fertility clinics in the U.S.They simply cannot be destroyed because the embryos are fertilized eggs and have a potential for life.
