We will create a sudung [hut] for them to live in,” he said.The tribe then assigns a small group of people to hunt boars for those who are sick. Other healthy tribe members clean and roast the meat and then leave the food at a certain place close to the sick people.The person who delivers the food gives a signal to tell the sick ones to take the meal. Tumenggung said the tribe members usually also sent them coffee, sugar and tobacco.In the besasandingon custom, the tribe also believes that interaction with sick people should be avoided at all costs. If tribe members happen to cross paths with those who are sick, they should keep a physical distance of 10 meters, he said.”There’s no certain time limit for the separation. It can be a week or months,” Temanggung said, “If the sick members have recovered, they can return to join the rest of the tribe.”According to Indonesian Conservation Community (KKI) Warsi data, there are around 5,235 people in the Suku Anak Dalam tribe, most of whom live in a 60,500-hectare area of TNBD. Only around 862 members of the tribe live outside the national park.Read also: Indonesia bans entry of foreigners to curb spread of coronavirusThe tribe members are among millions of indigenous people from various groups living in remote and customary forests areas across the archipelago, many of whom still reportedly do not own e-ID cards and face difficulties in accessing health facilities.So far, no confirmed coronavirus cases have been reported among indigenous tribes in the country out of the total 1,528 COVID-19 cases nationwide, however, experts believe that indigenous people are among the most vulnerable to the spread of contagious diseases.Marahalim Siagian, an independent social consultant and forest protection specialist, said infectious diseases such as the cold, smallpox and dysentery could spread very quickly among indigenous tribes.”Up to 50 percent of their population could be infected in the first two weeks of an outbreak,” said Marahalim, who was formerly with nonprofit bird conservation organization Burung Indonesia.Indigenous tribes therefore devise a system that allows them to keep their distance from the sick, such as in the case of the Suku Anak Dalam tribe, he said. The healthy tribe members even use different roads and water sources from those who are sick, he said.Tribe members generally believe that they contract diseases because they interact with village residents around the forest.Marahalim said the sick members of the tribe depended on themselves as individuals to defeat the disease. “If their body can fight the disease, they will recover and return to their tribe. If not, they will die,” he said. (nal/trn)Topics : “We asked our ancestors to close the doors to prevent the virus from coming in,” Seso tribe leader Damianus Tarung said on Monday.Damianus said that the tribes decided to perform the rituals as many East Manggarai residents started to feel wary over the novel coronavirus, which has already killed some 136 people in Indonesia to date.Meanwhile in Jambi, the Suku Anak Dalam nomadic tribe living in the province’s Bukit Duabelas National Park (TNBD) prepared a method to deal with the infectious disease called besasandingon, a sort of physical-distancing system that they have long implemented every time such an outbreak takes place.Tumenggung Tarib, one of the leaders of the tribe, which is also known as the Orang Rimba, said that the system had traditionally been applied to curb diseases with fast transmission such as influenza within one community. Indigenous communities across Indonesia are scrambling with their own ways to prevent COVID-19 from spreading in their homelands, with each performing their respective customs and rituals to keep the contagious respiratory disease at bay.In East Nusa Tenggara, leaders of the indigenous Kengge, Seso and Rongga tribes gathered at Mbolata Beach in East Manggarai on Monday to perform traditional rituals known as podo to ward off the infectious disease from reaching their communities.During the rituals, the tribe members provided a black male rooster and an egg as offertory symbols, as well as performing Pele Le Tadu Lau, or Pele Le Galu Lalu — roughly translating as “closing all access”, to ask for the spirit of their ancestors to give them help.
Topics : The government move gives local authorities in Paris and the Bouches-du-Rhone area powers to limit the circulation of people and vehicles, restrict access to public transport and air travel, limit access to public buildings and close restaurants, bars and other establishments.Paris and Marseille had in recent days already made the wearing of face masks mandatory in busy public areas.Late on Thursday Britain said it would impose a 14-day quarantine on all arrivals from France from Saturday because of the spike in infection rates.The Netherlands and four other countries were also added to the UK quarantine list that already included Spain and Belgium.Making Paris and Marseilles red zones could have a major impact on tourism, as it could lead other countries to impose quarantines on their citizens returning from those areas. The French government on Friday declared Paris and Marseille and its surrounding area high-risk zones for the coronavirus, granting authorities there powers to impose localized curbs to contain the spread of the disease.The declaration, made in a government decree, follows a sharp increase in COVID-19 infections in France over the past two weeks.On Thursday, France reported more than 2,500 new COVID-19 infections for the second day in a row, levels last seen in mid-April when the country was in the middle of one of Europe’s strictest lockdowns.
Share Is it always your way…or the highway? Most people have no problem identifying control freak behavior in others. But what about in themselves?Could you be a control freak and not even know it? We asked Judith Orloff, MD, author of Emotional Freedom: Liberate Yourself From Negative Emotions and Transform Your Life for the signs to look for.HERE ARE A FEW RED FLAGS:1. “I start telling people what to do and claim to know what’s best for them.”2. “I want to do things my way and don’t want to compromise.”3. “I become domineering and suffocating. I lack spontaneity. I have a rigid sense of order.”Any of these sound familiar? Then you might be a control freak. So how did you get this way–without even realizing it?“People who feel out of control tend to become controllers,” explains Dr. Orloff. “Deep down, they’re afraid of falling apart, so they micromanage to bind anxiety. They might have had chaotic childhoods, alcoholic parents or experienced early abandonment, making it hard to trust or relinquish control to others, or to a higher power.”And it’s not just a behavior exhibited toward others. Control freaks are controlling of themselves, too. “They may fanatically count carbs, become clean freaks or workaholics,” Orloff says. “Conventional psychiatry classifies extreme cases as Obsessive Compulsive Disorder–people are rigidly preoccupied with details, rules, lists and dominating others at the expense of flexibility and openness.”Unfortunately, this kind of behavior can cause havoc on your relationship. So how can you learn to let go–and spare your significant other?“Have an open discussion with your mate,” Orloff suggests. “Ask him/her to point out when you are getting overly controlling and be willing to back off. For instance, if you want to tell him what to wear, how to cut his hair, how to behave etc, stop the behavior.”But remember, this isn’t something you can just turn off like a light switch. Give yourself time to change and be forgiving of yourself.“Mindfully notice when you slip into control freak activities,” Orloff says. “And develop an action plan to make yourself feel safer rather than try to control people. Say the serenity prayer: ‘God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change and the courage to change the things I can.’”Source: GalTime.com LifestyleRelationships Top Signs You’re A Control Freak. by: – May 4, 2011 Share Share Tweet 40 Views no discussions Sharing is caring!
“You have to see a game through. We know the size of this fan base. They won’t accept us sitting behind the game. I would rather try to win a game than not. “There’s no rocket science formula. You have to win football matches, keep a clean sheet and thrive on the atmosphere generated. It takes big players to play in front of a big fan base.” Fulham started with teenager Cauley Woodrow up front but manager Felix Magath introduced Rodallega at half-time and the Colombian repaid his manager’s faith. It was Rodallega’s first appearance since February, and his fifth goal in 13 games this season. Magath said: ” I was not always so lucky with him but he has shown in training he is in good shape. I asked him if he comes in will he be in good shape and he said yes and that he will score.” Rodallega dedicated his goal to the Fulham supporters, who travelled to Villa Park in large numbers and gave their team terrific backing. He told fulhamfc.com: “I’m happy because I waited a long time for the opportunity. Steve Sidwell told me, ‘Hugo, this is your 45 minutes’. “I tried to help the team and then when I scored I was so happy. I was thinking that my family’s there, with the supporters, and of course the fans. “The fans have been unbelievable with me. All the time they call my name. This is for the fans and I want to say, ‘Thank you’.” The striker suffered the injury in training this week, robbing Aston Villa of one of their key players for the end of the season and also denying Benteke a place in the Belgium squad in Brazil this summer. Belgium have qualified for the World Cup finals for the first time since 2002 and, with a generation of hugely-talented young players having emerged, the Red Devils have been tipped to do well. Paul Lambert expects Christian Benteke to have more chances to shine on the world stage after his World Cup dreams were ended by a torn Achilles. Villa boss Lambert said: ” No one knew the extent of the injury and we had to wait and see what it was. We were hoping it was just a strain but weren’t sure until he went to the hospital. “He’s okay at the moment but whether that’s just a feeling of shock I’m not sure. He knows he’s going to miss the World Cup but he’s in a generation of Belgium players you think will qualify for more tournaments.” Benteke’s absence, plus Gabriel Agbonlahor’s failure to recover from a stomach bug, meant Lambert gave Grant Holt only his second start for Villa in Saturday’s Premier League clash with Fulham. Holt scored with a second-half header but it was not enough to prevent Fulham, who began the day bottom of the table, claiming a crucial 2-1 victory. Kieran Richardson opened the scoring with a terrific strike into the top corner and, after Holt had equalised, substitute Hugo Rodallega headed the winner four minutes from time. It was Villa’s 10th home defeat of the season – only Fulham have lost more – and the fans made their feelings clear at the final whistle. Lambert said: ” We can’t keep doing this. We have to rectify the home form, there’s no two ways about it. “Away from home, it’s well documented we’ve had our best performances, but you can’t keep losing at home. Press Association
The Blues have led or shared the lead since the opening round of fixtures and entered this weekend’s matches seven points clear with eight matches remaining, beginning at QPR on Sunday. “To be top of the league since day one shows consistency, stability, confidence and a brave approach to every game,” Mourinho said. “We are there, we deserve to be there, but every game is difficult. And we still have eight matches to play.” Mourinho knows the Premier League – a championship more competitive than Italy’s Serie A or Spain’s Primera Division, in his opinion – can throw up twists and turns in the closing weeks. The Blues boss was not surprised to see holders Manchester City slip up at Crystal Palace last Monday to all but end their title hopes. Mourinho added: “This is the Premier League. In other competitions it’s difficult to believe that the top team can lose four, five, six, seven matches. “In almost every country it’s very difficult for a top team to lose so many matches. “Here, yes. It’s possible. I’m not surprised. It’s happening to everybody. Everybody loses matches, everybody loses points.” Mourinho will hope Chelsea are not among them at Loftus Road. Jose Mourinho has lauded Chelsea’s consistency, with a hint of caution, as his side bid to wrap up a wire-to-wire Premier League victory. Press Association
Just hours after a protest took place calling for the firing of Broward Sheriff Gregory Tony, the Broward Sheriff’s Deputies Union has formally written to Gov. Ron DeSantis requesting for Tony’s removal.“The request to formally ask the Governor to remove Gregory Tony was made out of necessity for the 5,000 Union members at the Broward Sheriff’s Office who come to work knowing that their boss is unqualified during a time of national emergency and epidemic,” union president Jeff Bell, who has been suspended by Tony, said in a statement Thursday.Bell went on to write that, “If Gregory Tony were to accurately and honestly complete a Law Enforcement Officer job application today with all of the information the public has learned over the past two months, he would have a near impossible time finding a Law Enforcement job anywhere in the Nation.”Tony was named sheriff by DeSantis, after the governor removed Scott Israel in the aftermath of the Parkland massacre.Meanwhile, Tony and Israel are both leading candidates in the election for the sheriff’s position this year.Tony’s campaign said earlier Thursday that politics was the reason for the protest.“Yet again, Scott Israel’s campaign just can’t be honest,” Tony’s campaign said in a statement. “This was a political event organized by Scott Israel’s paid political consultants, and attended by political opponents of Sheriff Tony and Scott Israel himself.”

Before every home game, Syracuse plays a game of dodgeball in the locker room. The rules are simple: goalies and defense play the forwards.The tradition started four years ago when senior Holly Carrie-Mattimoe was a freshman. At the time, nobody knew if the game would last.“I don’t know how it started, but people probably just started throwing balls at each other,” Carrie-Mattimoe said. “So we said, ‘Why don’t we play dodgeball in the dressing room?’ And it’s stuck ever since.”Syracuse (19-14-1, 13-6-1 College Hockey America) has set a new program record for conference and overall wins. One reason why is the odd tradition that helps the team bond before every home game. The team’s improved performance might not be directly tied to the dodgeball games, but forward Shiann Darkangelo thinks it helps.“I think it’s good because it gets everyone rowdy and woken up,” Darkangelo said.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBut the dodgeball games don’t just wake up the team.Head coach Paul Flanagan said the first time he heard the game from his office, he had no idea what was going on.“First night I heard it, God knows what I thought was going on. I really had no idea,” Flanagan said. “A lot of things raced through my mind, and then I asked someone what the heck is going on and then I found out it was dodgeball.”Flanagan said even though he has never seen the game in person, he thinks it helps a little bit. He’s heard cheering and laughter emerge from the locker room, and doesn’t think that could hurt his team on the ice.On the flip side, players admit it isn’t always a happy and fun game.Carrie-Mattimoe said even though the game pumps up the players , they do occasionally get angry at each other. But in the end, the most important thing to them is getting ready for the game.“It gets pretty heated, some shots to the face,” goalie Kallie Billadeau said. “It’s kind of scary how much we get into it.”But if getting into it is what it takes to win, Billadeau and the rest of the defense are doing something right. At the end of the regular season, the defense and goalies emerged victorious by a slim margin of 8-7.Two of the team’s best dodgeball players are on defense, according to goalie Jenesica Drinkwater.“I think for us, (Brittney) Krebs and (Billadeau), they’re two big ones for us, they keep us in,” Drinkwater said.As for the offense, Emily Auerbacher is probably one of its best players, Drinkwater said.Though she never specifically said they were the best, Darkangelo mentioned a moment between Auerbacher and Krebs as one of her favorites.“Last week, it was striker (Auerbacher) and Krebsy versus each other, and it went on for like five minutes, so that was fun,” Darkangelo said. “It got everyone going.”While one-on-one matchups are fun to watch, forward Margot Scharfe said the point of the game is to get the whole team ready to go.“We have a tally on our board. It gets us really pumped, some close calls, some dodgeballs to the face,” Scharfe said. “But it’s a good way to get us pumped for every game.”Flanagan agreed with Scharfe, and said he doesn’t know how anything that gets them pumped up for the game can be a negative.At the same time, Flanagan wants to make sure the team isn’t getting rid of all of its energy before it hits the ice.“I guess the only thing I worry about is there’s a lot of energy in that room, and I know it’s not like ‘Monsters, Inc.,’ with screaming and yelling, generating energy,” Flanagain said, “but I want to make sure that they at least keep some in the reserve to carry on to the ice, because it sounds kind of crazy.”The games do get crazy, and in the end, Drinkwater said she only has one goal in mind when they play.Said Drinkwater: “Basically, I just try not to get hit.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on March 5, 2013 at 1:18 am Contact David: firstname.lastname@example.org
