Raw materials coming from India to produce COVID-19 medicine

first_imgState-owned firms have received COVID-19 medicine and raw materials from India to help treat infected patients in the country.Arya Sinulingga, an aide to State-Owned Enterprises (SOEs) Minister Erick Thohir, said on Wednesday that state-owned pharmaceutical firm PT Bio Farma had received its orders for oseltamivir on Tuesday afternoon from Hyderabad, India.“The oseltamivir is enough to make 500,000 tablets of medicine that will be used to treat COVID-19 patients,” he told the press during a virtual press briefing. Oseltamivir is the raw material for Tamiflu, which is often used to treat COVID-19 patients. Arya added that Bio Farma had also ordered 1 ton of chloroquine that will also be used to help treat patients infected with the pneumonia-like illness.Other than procuring the necessary medicine to treat the illness, he also said that several SOEs would soon produce 200 ventilators that would be used for patients in mild and critical conditions.“The ventilator prototypes from several universities and companies are still being tested by the Health Ministry. Once the test is finished, SOEs will be ready to produce them,” he said.Read also: Indonesia waives import levies for COVID-19 antivirus development, allocates Rp 1t for medical needs Several state-owned firms like weapons producer PT Pindad, electronics producer PT LEN and aircraft manufacturer PT Dirgantara Indonesia have announced plans to convert some of their production lines to produce ventilators.Research and Technology Minister Bambang Brodjonegoro also said on a separate occasion that Indonesia could have its first locally made ventilators by April 25.“PT Indofarma has agreed to take the ventilators and become the offtaker for them,” said Arya, referring to Bio Farma’s subsidiary.The government is easing trade requirements for businesses importing medical equipment and medicine needed to handle the pandemic.”We have also eliminated the import duty for medicines paid by the government,” Finance Minister Sri Mulyani Indrawati said on March 16.The same will be done for medical aid and COVID-19 testing devices sent by other countries, she added.Topics :last_img read more

Free throws doom Wisconsin in 49-47 loss to Michigan State

first_imgMany would brand Wisconsin’s 49-47 loss to No 13 Michigan State Tuesday night as Big Ten Basketball in its rawest form – a low-scoring, physical affair with several lengthy scoreless stretches.But for the Badgers, the game slipped away at the free throw line when George Marshall missed the first of two free throws that could have tied up the game with three seconds left at the Kohl Center. The redshirt freshman missed the rim entirely on his second attempt – an intentional miss – and prevented a last-second shot attempt from UW.That followed three-straight missed attempts from the charity stripe by fifth-year senior forward Jared Berggren, each putting the Spartans that much closer to victory.“It’s cost us games before and it obviously cost us today,” senior forward Mike Bruesewitz said. “We got to get in the gym and just start knocking them down, plain and simple. It can’t be an excuse anymore.”Bo Ryan’s squad finished the game 7-of-18 (38.9 percent) from the free throw line, a troubling trend for a team that now ranks last in the Big Ten in free throw percentage.The late-game issues at the line followed up a solid first half performance from Wisconsin, who took a one-point lead into the locker room and led by as much as seven early on. The lead continued to slip away after the break, as the Badgers regained an advantage only once after the 17:52 mark of the second half.Against a bigger Michigan State lineup anchored inside by the 6-foot-9 Derrick Nix and 6-foot-10 Adreian Payne inside, Berggren and co. said settling for low-percentage shots cost them late.“I felt like I was getting a good number of touches inside and they were sinking and I was kicking it out for some decent looks,” said Berggren, who finished with nine points on 4-of-15 shooting. “So the looks were there, I think we got to do a better job attacking the rim some more and not always settle, especially on a night like this when shots aren’t falling.”As both teams struggled to find their offensive grooves, the Spartans relied on forward Branden Dawson in the paint and guard Keith Appling outside to even approach the 50-point mark by game’s end.Appling – whose day included a rare four-point play late in the first half – scored a game-high 19 with a diverse arsenal of three-pointers, floaters in the lane and pull-up jumpers.Dawson netted 11 of his 18 points in the first half, taking advantage of Wisconsin’s lack of depth in the frontcourt with Frank Kaminsky sitting out his second consecutive game after suffering an eye injury against Indiana.“I think that … definitely hurt them some,” Michigan State head coach Tom Izzo said. “Watching them in the Indiana game [Kaminsky] was pretty good, just gives them that dimension that he can pop and do some things and at other times I worry about us having to go against smaller guys because they’re quicker, they can take us off the dribble.”Despite the offensive outbursts from the Spartan duo that accounted for over 73 percent of their team’s points, the game was marred by long stretches with little-to-no scoring. A Ben Brust three-pointer marked the first basket for either team four minutes into the game, setting the stage for the defensive battle many expected. The game’s final minutes ended in familiar fashion, an open three-pointer from forward Ryan Evans the Badgers’ lone converted field goal in the game’s final seven-plus minutes. It was Evans’ shot that cut Michigan State’s lead to two and made a potential last-second comeback possible. The critical three-pointer was a small bright spot for Evans, whose shots consistently came up short on a 3-of-13 night from the floor.After a quick foul, Michigan State’s freshman guard Gary Harris then converted one of his two free throws before Ryan put the game in his young guard’s hands. Unable to get a satisfactory look from outside, Marshall attacked the hoop to draw the foul – the right decision, according to Bruesewitz.Then the game came down to the exact spot where Wisconsin had surrendered so many points throughout the game.“As a young guy you’ve got to learn that yeah, that’s a very important play,” Bruesewitz said of Marshall’s free throws. “But there was an exponential number of plays prior to that that put us in that position and we can’t blame it all on one play and I told him that.”Neither Ryan nor the players could explain the team’s troubling performance at the line. Repetition and regaining a rhythm at the line was the only solution, and Berggren said much of the battle was mental. “It’s a craft, you get good at something,” Ryan said.“There’s nothing like the game though. It’s always easy for people on the outside looking in with free throws, until you’ve been there and its something about what you got inside, physically and mentally.”last_img read more


Timberwolves almost drafted Kobe Bryant in 1996 NBA Draft

first_img“Uhhhh, I’m not going to answer that question,” Lin said. “Next question, please.”The question was still posed to him. After all, Lin has scored in double digits in 15 of the past 22 games despite seeing inconsistent roles as both a starter, reserve, point guard and off-ball guard. “I understand God is in control,” Lin said. “That’s the biggest thing for me. It doesn’t matter what’s happening around me. I don’t always understand. I’m not talking about this season, but in life. I don’t always understand what happened or why things happen the way they did. But I understand God has a perfect plan and he loves me.”Lin seemed more concern about a recent sinus issue that he believes he can recover from during the Lakers day off on Thursday as they travel to Toronto.“I might just sleep until Friday morning” Lin joked, “and see you guys at shootaround.” The Timberwolves acquired Garnett in a mid-season trade from Brooklyn, a move both to mentor Minnesota’s young players and possibly end his career with the team that originally drafted him. But the history between Bryant and Garnett mostly rest on the NBA Finals matchups between the Lakers and Celtics in 2008 (Lakers lost 4-2) and 2010 (Lakers won 4-3). But Saunders’ most definitive memory of Bryant and Garnett took place when he coached them in the 2004 NBA All-Star game.“Kobe was picking guys up at 94 feet,” Saunders said. “That’s his competitiveness and nature in wanting to win and play. KG is the same way. As long as they love playing the game, they’re going to keep on playing.” Staying calmLakers guard Jeremy Lin initially did not want to broach the subject. He was asked if he was surprised he sat out of the final 11:21 of the fourth quarter and all of overtime despite posting 19 points on 6-of-14 shooting and five assists. MINNEAPOLIS – The possibility still haunts and intrigues Minnesota coach Flip Saunders 19 years later. What would have happened had the Minnesota Timberwolves selected Kobe Bryant fifth overall in the 1996 NBA Draft? That would have paired Bryant along with Kevin Garnett, two high school phenoms who eventually morphed into future Hall of Famers. Instead, Minnesota selected Ray Allen and traded him to Milwaukee for Stephon Marbury. “We teetered on the idea of getting another one because we had success with KG,” Saunders said before the Lakers’ 101-99 overtime win over the Timberwolves on Wednesday at Target Center. “But we kind of thought it would be too much having two of those guys who were young at that time and still in the process of developing KG as a young player.”Neither Bryant (right shoulder) nor Garnett (sore left knee) played in Wednesday’s game in what could have been the second-to-last matchup before Garnett’s possible final season in a storied 19-year NBA career. center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more


BracketRacket: ‘You want to skip steps but you can’t.’

first_imgConnecticut head coach Kevin Ollie cuts the netting on the rim after his team defeating Michigan State 60-54 during a regional final at the NCAA college basketball tournament, Sunday, March 30, 2014, in New York. (AP Photo/Julio Cortez)Welcome back to BracketRacket, the one-stop shopping place for all your offbeat NCAA tournament needs. In today’s edition, coach Cal keeps going back to the future, Florida beats Dayton (again!) in some kind of parallel universe, UConn wins but loses face, and tourists enjoy a rare moment of consensus in New York. Without further ado:WE DON’T REBUILD AT KENTUCKY, WE … ACTUALLY, WE DO REBUILD. EVERY YEAR.If “The John Calipari Finishing School for NBA Prospects — Sponsored by the University of Kentucky(TM)” sent out a newsletter to high-school recruits, the latest might read something like this.“This year’s class is having a slam-bang time at the NCAA tournament. We’re going to the Final Four — again! — and preparations are already underway for a reunion at this summer’s NBA draft. But enough about this year’s team, since many of them won’t be around by the time you arrive in the fall. Can’t wait to see you in Lexington!”Say what you want about coach Cal, but the man has nerves of steel. Around this time last year, the Wildcats’ season ended with a loss to Robert Morris in the opening round of the NIT and worse, the cupboard was practically bare. Nerlens Noel, Kentucky’s best player went down during the season with a devastating knee injury, and was already rehabbing to go pro.So Calipari simply did what he’s always done: start over.He recruited circles around every other coach in the game, bringing in six McDonald’s All-Americans and trying to coach ’em up fast enough to deliver a happy meal by tournament time. There were chills and spills along the way, but after Kentucky held on to beat Michigan in the Midwest regional final Sunday, Calipari took a brief, but well-deserved bow.“The whole thing about building a team, especially young guys, is it’s a process and you cannot skip steps. You want to skip steps,” he said emphatically, “but you can’t.”You can building a program, though.Take nothing away from Calipari’s in-season work, but it pales in comparison to his abilities as a talent scout. In his four previous seasons at Kentucky, he’s already put 17 players in the NBA, with another handful set to join them this June. He’s the only coach to send three No. 1 overall picks to the pros, the only coach to have five players taken in the first round in the same year (2010), and the only one to squeeze six in since the league cut the draft to two rounds.And he’s showing no signs of slowing down.Plenty of Kentucky fans took a break Saturday between the Wildcats’ wins in the tournament to take in the Indiana High School Class 4A boys basketball state championship game. The kid to watch turned out to be Indianapolis Arsenal Tech’s 6-foot-10 Trey Lyles, who had 16 points and 12 rebounds to lock up a state title.Lyles is already committed to Kentucky, which if nothing else means coach Cal saved himself some postage.___ART IMITATING LIFE, OR MAYBE JUST THE NCAA TOURNAMENTIt’s a miracle no one thought of it before.OK, you probably did. More than once, too. Maybe you and a few pals even went down to the basement, found a Nerf ball and taped a mini-backboard to the wall. Maybe you even filmed it.But get it on air?These guys did: (via YouTube.com): http://bit.ly/1ogFgmn .They’re part of the WCJB-TV crew at an ABC affiliate in Gainesville, Florida. Barred from showing highlights of Florida’s win over Dayton — non-CBS stations can’t until the day after the game — anchor Zach Aldridge, meteorologist Mike Gismondi and two other guys from the station re-enacted the Gators’ triumph, from the pre-game locker room huddle to the postgame celebration.“I can’t air any of it without breaking the law and every other rule and regulation known to TV,” Aldridge says in the run-up to the clip. “But I want to show you the next-best thing.”You might be selling yourself short, Zach. It was actually more entertaining than the real thing.___THANKS, I NEEDED THATIn what’s threatening to become a postgame tradition, UConn’s coach and players have begun exchanging celebratory slaps. Not the usual high- or low-five variety, but slaps upside the head.Coach Kevin Ollie started it after UConn’s upset win over Iowa State, finishing up an interview on the court and then, as he walked by Terrence Samuel, delivering the chuck here (via YouTube.com): http://bit.ly/1dIQrzp . It was — pardon the expression — a hit with the team.Deciding one good turn deserved another, Ollie gathered his Huskies around him for the postgame interview after upsetting Michigan State on Sunday and wanted confirmation he wasn’t dreaming. Naturally, the task fell to Samuel, who delivered here (via The Big Lead): http://bit.ly/1dIS9kkBracketRacket just made UConn its pick to win it all.Not because the Huskies are the best team still standing, but because we’d like to see how many of them would still be standing by the end.___CELEBRITY ALUMS OF THE DAYInstead of going mano-a-mano, our next two combatants traded blows via the video board at Madison Square Garden.During a second-half timeout in that same UConn-Michigan State game, former Spartan and 2000 national champion Mateen Cleaves turned up on the screen and got a rousing cheer from the green-and-white-clad fans in the crowd of 19,499. A few seconds later, the camera found former Husky and 1999 national champion Richard Hamilton.With much more of the crowd in his corner, Hamilton escalated the battle by raising his arms and imploring the UConn fans to cheer even louder. Then back to Cleaves, who recovered nicely by matching the arm-raising gesture and for good measure, started “popping” the Michigan State shirt he was wearing. Back came Hamilton, popping his shirt and the place went up for grabs.Mindful that the timeout was coming to an end, the board operator finally went to a split screen showing both Cleaves and Hamilton. Judging by the ovation, we’re scoring it a draw.___STAT OF THE DAYSTATS notes that if three of the Final Four teams wind up blanketed by confetti a week from Monday, they won’t need a refresher course to act like they’ve been there before. In fact, five of the past 10 national championships have been won by either Connecticut (2004, 2011), Florida (2006, 2007) or Kentucky (2012). The exception is Wisconsin. The Badgers’ last — and only — title dates back to 1941.___QUOTE OF THE DAY“We got 16 of the most out-of-body turnovers known to mankind, to be honest.” Michigan State coach Tom Izzo explaining the Spartans’ self-inflicted wounds against UConn.___SUNDAY’S RESULTSRegional FinalsMIDWESTAt IndianapolisKentucky 75, Michigan 72EASTAt New York CityUConn 60, Michigan State 54FINAL FOURSaturday, April 5SemifinalsAt Arlington, TexasUConn (30-8) vs. Florida (36-2), 6:09 p.m. EDTKentucky (28-10) vs. Wisconsin (30-7), 8:49 p.m.NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPMonday, April 7Semifinal winners, 9:10 p.m.last_img read more
