Agriculture companies ramp up use of technology

first_imgAgriculture companies PT Petrokimia Gresik, PT Astra Agro Lestari and PT Rukan are ramping up their use of technology to streamline business and overcome challenges brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic.Fertilizer company PT Petrokimia Gresik is planning to introduce machine learning and big data into its operations by integrating data that includes customer reviews, market surveys, institutional data, harvest data and data from in-house apps on production and the market.Petrokimia Gresik president director Dwi Annurogo said Tuesday the company was planning to develop soil and weather sensors and utilize data based on satellite imagery. “Petrokimia Gresik’s big data is still standalone and has not been fully integrated,” Dwi said in virtual discussion.“We have a plan that we will integrate this big data and combine it with machine learning so that we can have real-time data.”Dwi said the plan would better prepare the company to face challenges in case the government removed the subsidy for fertilizers.The company’s move to speed up the adoption of technology comes at a time when the coronavirus pandemic has prompted most businesses to go digital to cater to the work-from-home population. The Jakarta administration is extending the transitional period for large-scale social restrictions as it grapples with more than 1,000 confirmed cases every day.Publicly listed palm oil company PT Astra Agro Lestari is also speeding up the use of technology, having started digitalizing its business in 2017.Astra Agro Lestari installed internet of things sensors in dozens of its 200,000-ton palm oil tanks, enabling the company to monitor production volume at any time, said Santosa, the company’s president director.“With COVID-19 preventing us from traveling, we can still monitor our operations very well because we have developed an operation center that is connected to all sites, from Aceh to Sulawesi,” said Santosa.He explained that the demand for crude palm oil had picked up with China and India importing again to anticipate a surge in demand during holidays.Indonesia, the largest producer of palm oil, recorded a decline of 11.57 percent in crude palm oil exports in the first half of the year, according to Santosa, quoting data from the Indonesian Oil Palm Association (GAPKI).The coronavirus pandemic also prompted a digital shift in agriculture machine company PT Rutan. The company is moving its monitoring tools and meeting, promotion, publication and training systems online, according to Rutan director of operations Clifford Budiman.To overcome a fall in demand for new machines, the company was offering its customers maintenance services for their machines, Clifford said, adding that this led to new orders and purchases.As a result, Rutan recorded in September a 55 percent increase in revenue, cut its operational costs by half and paid all its debts, he said.“We do not know what is going to happen during COVID-19, whether we have entered the new normal, whether things are still abnormal or whether next year [sees a return] to a pre-pandemic normal. We can only make forecasts. For me, it is better to focus on the process and the progress,” he said.The Indonesian agriculture sector grew 2.19 percent year-on-year from April to June, when most sectors showed sharp declines because of the pandemic-induced economic downturn.

Lack of VAT guidance for DB pension funds ‘beggars belief’

first_imgThe UK’s tax authority, HMRC, has announced another 12-month extension to a transitional period that effectively frees defined benefit (DB) pension schemes from paying value-added tax (VAT) on investment and administration services for their assets.This adds to the one-year transition period already granted and allows scheme sponsors to deduct the VAT charged on these services from their tax bills until 31 December 2017.The background to the announcement is a ruling by the European Court of Justice three years ago that the investment management fees Dutch employer PPG paid on behalf of its DB schemes should be tax exempt.Explaining why it was extending the transitional period again rather than making any more permanent change to rules, HMRC said: “It’s taking longer than expected to reconcile the court decision with pension and financial service regulations, accounting rules and emerging case law.” It said taxpayers could continue to use the VAT treatment outlined in ‘VAT Notice 700/17: Funded Pension Schemes’ until the end of December 2017.“Towards the end of this period, we’ll review this position and consider the need for a further extension if necessary,” HMRC said.Ian Bell, head of pensions at consultancy RSM, said trustees of pension schemes and sponsoring employers had been anxious for further clarification from the tax authority on its policy regarding VAT recovery conditions of employers and trustees of DB pension schemes.“When you consider that the European Court of Justice decision in PPG Holdings dates back to 18 July 2013,” he said, “it beggars belief we still do not have any definitive guidance that takes account of not only the VAT position but also contractual, regulatory, independence, accounting and direct tax issues.“Surely it’s not beyond the wit of the Treasury and HMRC to facilitate a joined-up solution, although there could, of course, be a further underlying objective that, following the Brexit vote, delaying any decision may mean the case law never has to be implemented at all.”Given the issues HMRC will now have to reconcile, Bell said it was unlikely any more guidance on VAT recovery of pension costs would be provided until at least autumn 2017.“Or perhaps it is now in the long grass, never to be seen again,” he said.last_img read more

West Florida Volleyball Stuffed by #2 Tampa Saturday Night

first_imgWest Florida Volleyball Stuffed by #2 Tampa Saturday Night Sept. 8, 2007PENSACOLA, Fla. – The Tampa Spartans Volleyball team was clicking on all cylinders, as they showed why they are the defending National Champions. In fact, the last time the Spartans were in the UWF Fieldhouse, they were crowned the National Champions during the Fall Festival hosted by the University of West Florida. It appeared that Tampa was playing at that same intensity, and UWF wasn’t up to matching it.”They were just one step quicker than us, and we didn’t play well,” explained Argos Head Coach Melissa Wolter. “It’s a good learning experience to play against a team that just doesn’t make any mistakes, and they force you out of your game.” Coach Wolter will have to get her team ready quickly, as they play again Sunday against #5 Florida Southern, in the UWF Fieldhouse at 1:30 pm.The Tampa Spartans rode 16 kills from Erin Clark, and 11 from Alisha Green, while Isabela Gualberto (Sr. / Brazil) led the Argos with 10 kills. Setter Madeline Gonzalez (Jr. / Puerto Rico) had her lowest assist output of the season with 34. This was mostly due to the strong defense of the Spartans. Chelsea Wilhoite (Fr. / Jacksonville, Fla.) was a bright spot for the Argos, as she connected on 6 kills in only 11 chances, and also recorded 8 digs. Luciana Rapach (Jr. / Brazil) led the Argo defense with 14 digs.The final score of the match was 30-24, 30-20, and 30-26 in favor of the Tampa Spartans. The Spartans got out to a quick 5 or 6 point lead in each game and just maintained it. Each time the Argos made a run and closed within a couple points, the Spartans responded with a key point. The victory for Tampa improved them to 9-1, while the Argos dropped to an identical 9-1 record.In the earlier match, the Argos won their ninth straight to start the season, with a 3-0 win over Rollins College. Kimberly Clark (Jr. / St. Petersburg, Fla.) led the Argo attack with 10 kills, while Danielle Spitzer (Sr. / Birmingham, Ala.) chipped in with 6 kills and 4 blocks. The match score was 30-22, 30-19, 30-25, as the Argos out-hit the Tars .176 to .065 to control the match from the beginning.The Argos take the court Sunday at 1:30 vs. Florida Southern (8-1), who had wins today over Alabama Huntsville and North Alabama. Sunday’s matches will conclude the 2007 Argonaut Regional Cross-over Tournament, which showcased six teams that made the National Tournament last season.

Jewel and Robin seek Gowran spoils

first_img The Jarlath Fahey-trained Little King Robin ran some good races in defeat last season, the highlight being her second place finish in the Grade One Mares’ Champion Hurdle at the Punchestown Festival. She finished fourth on her return to action in the Slan Abhaile at Listowel recently and that spin should leave her spot-on for this assignment. The feature race at Gowran on Friday is the Join Us Tomorrow For Racing Mares Hurdle, which has attracted a quality field of eight, with Jennies Jewel and Little King Robin the stand-out names. Little King Robin has been a model of consistency throughout the summer and she recorded her fourth win of the year at Bellewstown on her last start. She is rated just 4lb inferior to Jennies Jewel and is sure to run her usual consistent race here. Clara McCloud is another useful sort in the line-up and she can be expected to give a good account of herself, while Down Ace, who won a Listed hurdle at Taunton in December, is an interesting contender making her debut for Noel Meade. Theatre Bird and Ourbeautifuldream would not look out of place in the feature contest but instead they line up in the 10-runner Follow Gowran Park On Facebook Handicap Hurdle. Both look to have solid claims, while Brand Ambassador and Curragh Golan are others likely feature prominently in the betting. The Book Thyestes Packages Today Novice Handicap Hurdle looks a competitive affair and Snapchat, Ronava, Wandering Aengus and Ram Them All are a few for the shortlist. Henry Higgins and Little Haarth appear the two to focus on in the opening Park Gigs Maiden Hurdle, with Davy Russell significant jockey booking on Klinnsman in the Gowran Park Santa Train Maiden Hurdle. Chakisto was beaten by just half a length on his last start at Listowel and with Adam O’Neill taking off a valuable 7lb here he should give a good account of himself in the Dining Packages At www.gowranpark.ie Handicap Hurdle. Press Association Twelve horses will line up for the concluding 100 Years Racing (Pro/Am) Flat Race and with nine newcomers set to take part it looks a wide-open contest. Black Zambezi is perhaps the most interesting contender making his debut for Colm Murphy, with Patrick Mullins booked to ride. The five-year-old son of Kalanisi cost 25,000 euros as a three-year-old and he is a half-brother to Niche Market, who won the Irish Grand National in 2009. last_img read more

Windies aiming to take England out of natural game

first_imgNOTTINGHAM, England (CMC) – Seamer Kesrick Williams has underscored the importance of taking England out of their natural game as West Indies look to square the five-match series in the second One-Day International at Trent Bridge here today.The Windies under-performed in all departments in Tuesday’s opening game at Old Trafford, crashing to a seven-wicket defeat to fall behind 1-0, and leaving themselves with a mountain to climb to get back into the series.Their 204, batting first, proved inadequate and England chased down the total with nearly 11 of their allotted 42 overs still available.Williams said the hosts had been disciplined in their approach, rotating the strike brilliantly and cutting out the big strokes, and stressed this was the area the Windies needed to address.“In the last game, I think we kind of bowled well as a bowling team but there wasn’t enough runs on the board,” Williams said here yesterday.“There isn’t a team that won’t be under pressure with 204 to defend especially with world class players that pick gaps and find gaps easily like Joe Root and (Jonny) Bairstow coming in at the top this time, and they really rotated the strike well.“If you realize, they didn’t hit as many boundaries as they probably anticipated – a lot of singles were run and that’s where they killed us.”He continued: “If you can block up these areas where these guys get their singles, I think we can do well. We are not bowling much of the boundary balls but what we can try to do is block off the singles and try to make them go over the top because they are not boundary-hitters.“If we can try to make them do more of that I think we can be in the game.”Bairstow struck exactly 100 not out off 97 balls – his maiden ODI hundred – while Root carved out a busy 54, in a 125-run second-wicket stand which took the game away from the Caribbean side.Neither batsmen struck a single six but the partnership came at a fair clip, off only 116 deliveries.Williams finished with two wickets but his six overs proved expensive, costing 50 runs as the Windies attack proved ineffective in the English conditions.The 27-year-old, who only made his ODI debut four months ago, said a more disciplined and consistent bowling approach from West Indies would pay dividends, especially on the softer surfaces.“With the wickets that we are playing on here which are a lot different to the Caribbean wickets, it’s very important that we stick to the basics, be patient, set the field accordingly, bowl to one side of the wicket, get certain fielders in the right positions and that will help us a long way,” the Vincentian pointed out.“We have to stick to one area and be really, really disciplined because we are not playing against guys in a regional tournament. You’re playing against professional players, players that don’t have many weaknesses – there are not a lot of weaknesses to prey on.”He continued: “So we have to stick to the basics, be positive and execute when we have the chance to execute. That is the main thing we have to do as a team going into this second game.”The defeat at Old Trafford confirmed the Windies fate of having to go through a 10-team qualifying tournament next year involving ICC affiliates, in order to qualify for the 2019 World Cup in England.Only the hosts, along with the remaining top-seven teams in the ICC rankings by September 30, gained direct qualification to the event.West Indies currently lie ninth.SQUADS:ENGLAND – Eoin Morgan (captain), Moeen Ali, Jonathan Bairstow, Jake Ball, Jos Buttler, Tom Curran, Alex Hales, Liam Plunkett, Adil Rashid, Joe Root, Jason Roy, Ben Stokes, David Willey, Chris Woakes.WEST INDIES – Jason Holder (captain), Jason Mohammed (vice-captain), Sunil Ambris, Devendra Bishoo, Miguel Cummins, Chris Gayle, Kyle Hope, Shai Hope, Alzarri Joseph, Evin Lewis, Ashley Nurse, Rovman Powell, Marlon Samuels, Jerome Taylor, Kesrick Williams.last_img read more

Swiftness of Sarkisian hire unfair to Coach O

first_img“Davidson’s Direction” runs every other Wednesday. To comment on this story, email Jake at jake.r.davidson@gmail.com or visit dailytrojan.com.Follow Jake on Twitter @JakeDavidson23 Monday was certainly a crazy day in Troy. It was a spectacle unlike any other as we witnessed the intersection of business and emotion. Throw in the volatile nature of social media, and this explosive concoction of variables proved to be great theater and fodder for lots of chatter.To fully understand the somewhat puzzling events that transpired Monday, we have to understand all of the intricate pieces first. There was the hiring process, this year’s closely knit football team, a passionate fan base and 24/7 media coverage of the season.The catalyst that ignited the emotional outbreak Monday was the businesslike manner in which Steve Sarkisian was hired. Much like the firing of Lane Kiffin, Athletic Director Pat Haden acted quickly and efficiently, leaving little time to spare. If a similar process had unfolded in a private equity firm, I imagine Haden would be applauded for his efforts.USC football, however, is not corporate America. While logic and reason should trump emotion, it just doesn’t for fans and players in college football. So hiring a coach less than 48 hours after a demoralizing loss to UCLA is certainly going to rub some people the wrong way in any situation.It seems even more callous when put into context with the emotional makeup of this year’s team. Ed Orgeron was more than just a coach to the Trojans. His upbeat demeanor and gregarious attitude created a bond with players and fans alike. He took over a program devoid of emotion and put the fun back into football.Losing that type of connection after a magical eight-week run was a tough pill to swallow for some middle-aged fans, whose only interaction with Coach O was through the lens of a camera. It’s hard to even imagine the emotional toll this took on players who grew exceptionally close to Orgeron after spending extensive time with him on a daily basis.Whether or not Coach O was treated unfairly in this situation, many players and fans’ perceptions is that he got the short end of the stick. This feeling was only exacerbated when Orgeron left his final meeting with his players in tears. For a unit whose mantra was “one team, one heartbeat,” the sting of seeing your leader cry is naturally going to create intense emotions.When 18 to 22-year-olds —myself included — feel anything, they take to social media to vent their frustrations. Unlike most college-aged kids, USC football players have been put under a microscope by fans and a press corps hungry for any piece of information. This combination of factors created a solemn environment around the football program Monday.On its own, this situation poses a multitude of issues. Then, the fan base gets involved. Sanctions or no sanctions, USC fans demand excellence, plain and simple. If you are proud of a nine-win season, you can go across town. We wanted a Nick Saban or Urban Meyer-esque hire, and anything less feels unacceptable. Sarkisian isn’t Saban -— not yet, anyway — and the fact that he was hired so quickly only added fuel to the fire. The ties to Lane Kiffin didn’t help, nor did the fact that Orgeron had a better record in the Pac-12 this year than Sarkisian ever has.Pleasing the entire USC fan base on any occasion is nearly impossible. This hire didn’t even come close. Just like firing a coach in an airport hangar is a public relations disaster, so was this firestorm. By ignoring the emotional aspect, and approaching this decision from a purely analytical and business perspective, the USC Athletic Department did itself a disservice.That is not a critique of Sarkisian, just the process in which he was reintroduced to the Trojan faithful. I personally am a fan of his hire, and even if I weren’t, now is the time to stop complaining and rally around the new coach. As fans, there is no need to further aggravate the situation by complaining and criticizing.At the end of the day, there wasn’t a single coach out there who had the caché of Saban or Meyer. Truth be told, USC doesn’t need either of those guys to win a national title. I was a big proponent of Coach O getting the job, because I think all it takes to win at USC is recruiting prowess, the ability to motivate and great assistant coaches. As long as our coach isn’t aloof, stubborn and pedantic, we as fans have nothing to worry about.Sarkisian brings all of that to the table and more. Tosh Lupoi is a recruiting maven, and Justin Wilcox is one the best defensive coordinators in the country. Soon enough, Sarkisian’s outgoing nature will win over the fan base.Monday was a hectic day and took a toll on all parties involved. I predict, however, that in three years when Sarkisian and Max Browne are holding up a crystal football, everyone will be fondly reminiscing about this decision, much like we did when Pete Caroll and Matt Leinart won their first national championship. At the end of the day, there is only one thing that will forever extinguish this firestorm. It’s the only thing that cures an ailing program and appeases a hungry fan base: winning. Let’s give Sark and company a chance to do just that — win.last_img read more

Yartey eyes Black Stars return

first_imgGhana midfielder Ishmael Yartey says he wouldn’t be surprised if Black Stars head coach Kwesi Appiah recalls him to join the Black Stars squad.The  nimble footed  forward has been in  a scintillating form since joining Swiss side FC Sion last summer.Last week, the 23-year-old netted his first goal in almost one-and-half season to help FC Sion beat Grasshoppers 2-0, and was influential as his side walloped third-placed Luzern 3-0 in the Swiss Super League on Saturday.Yartey told Asempa FM sports: “I am working extremely hard here and I believe my hardwork will pay off. I am performing well for my team (FC Sion) and I wouldn’t be surprised if I get a call-up to the national team.”The 23-year-old received his first call up to the national team in May 2012 for Black Stars  in this year’s World Cup qualifiers against Lesotho and Zambia after he was controversially dropped from the Black Satellites team in 2009 by Sellas Tetteh.last_img read more
