first_imgPT MRT Jakarta melakukan Kick-off dan penandatanganan pakta integritas pelaksanaan pengadaan proyek fase 2 MRT Jakarta Koridor Bundaran HI-Kota. Pembangunan fase II Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) Jakarta semuanya akan dibangun di bawah tanah.Baca juga: Libur Lebaran, MRT Jakarta Jadi “Wahana Hiburan” Favorit KeluargaHal ini dikarenakan lahan di darat lebih sulit dan ada kali yang menjadi hambatan di daerah Harmoni. Direktur PT MRT Jakarta William Sabandar mengatakan, fase II akan 100 persen di bawah tanah dan kedalamannya sekitar 30 meter atau akan lebih dari fase I karena ada kali diatasnya. Dia menjelaskan, dalam fase II pembangunan MRT Jakarta sendiri akan ada tujuh stasiun yang membentang dari Bundaran Hotel Indonesia (HI) menuju ke Kota dan menjadi delapan termasuk depo MRT fase II.“Mulai dari Monas, Harmoni, Sawah Besar, Mangga Besar, Glodok dan di akhiri di Kota dengan panjang lintasan 8,3 km,” ujar William.Dia mengatakan, fase II ini sendiri deponya akan dibangun di daerah Ancol Barat dan sudah diputuskan dalam rapat pimpinan bersama Pemerintah Provinsi DKI Jakarta.“Lokasi depo sedang dalam percakapan diskusi dalam rapim gubernur sudah diputuskan di Ancol Barat jadi proses administrasinya sedang dilaksanakan antara Pemerintah Provinsi dan Pemerintah Pusat,” tambahnya.Pemilihan Ancol Barat sendiri karena adanya lahan yang cukup luas untuk membangun depo fase II yang membutuhkan lahan 9,4 hektar. Untuk pembangunannya sendiri akan dilakukan jika sudah ada penetapannya.“Tergantung nanti penetapannya. Karena ini dalam proses studi yang kami lakukan merekomendasikan jalur menuju ke depo di fase 2 sebagai opsi karena lahan di Kampung Bandan enggak tersedia,” kata dia.Dalam pengerjaan fase II ini, akan ada enam paket kontrak yang terdiri dari CP200 untuk pekerjaan Gardu Listrik (RSS) di Monas, CP201 untuk Bundaran HI-Monas, CP202 Harmoni-Mangga Besar, CP203 Glodok Kota, CP205 sistem perkeretaapian dan rel, CP206 untuk pekerjaan kereta. Adapun peletakan batu pertama atau Groundbreaking fase II sendiri sudah dilakukan sejak 24 Maret 2019 lalu oleh Presiden Joko Widodo.PT MRT Jakarta menargetkan pembangunan fase II MRT Jakarta koridor Bundaran HI-Kota selesai tahun 2024 mendatang. Nilai anggaran yang disiapkan untuk fase I ini sebesar Rp22,5 triliun yang merupakan pinjaman dari Jepang.Baca juga: MRT Fase II Hingga ke Ancol? Budi Karya: Nilai Investasi Bisa Bengkak Rp10 TriliunDiketahui, pasokan listrik untuk MRT Jakarta fase II lebih kecil dari fase I yang sebesar 60 megawatt (MW). General Manajer PLN Distribusi Jakarta Muhamad Iksan Asaad mengatakan alasan pasokan listrik hanya 50MW karena sudah dibackup dari Fase I dimana sentral pasokan di Lebak Bulus mencukupi hingga Kota.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… RelatedTerkoneksi dengan Fase II, Waktu Tempuh MRT dari Lebak Bulus ke Kampung Bandan Hanya 45 Menit!05/11/2018In “Darat”Fase II MRT Jakarta Diprediksi Selesai Tahun 202401/11/2019In “Darat”Tempuh Jalur 6 Km, Pekerjaaan Konstruksi MRT Jakarta Fase 2A Dimulai Maret 202017/02/2020In “Featured”last_img read more

Stoops raves over Dupree’s combine results

first_imgLEXINGTON, Ky. – Kentucky football coach Mark Stoops is used to seeing Bud Dupree run fast, jump high and do things that elite athletes can do. So Dupree’s standout performance over the weekend at the NFL combine came as no surprise to Stoops.Among linebackers, UK’s 6-foot-4, 269-pound rush specialist recorded the third-best 40-yard dash (4.56 seconds), second-best vertical jump (42 inches) and single-best standing broad jump (11-6) at the combine, solidifying his status as one of the most freakish athletes in the draft.“He’s a special one,” Stoops said Tuesday. “He really is. I said it from the moment I got on campus here that he would fit right in and play and be as good, if not better, as the guys that I coached (as defensive coordinator at Florida State), and I coached some awfully good ones.”The only combine result by Dupree that surprised Stoops was his “incredible” broad jump – the fourth-best by any player at any position in the last 10 years, according to NFL.com – and the coach thinks Dupree is capable of running an even faster 40-yard time.Dupree didn’t participate in position-specific drills at the combine due to a groin injury, but when given the chance at future workouts, “he’ll blow that up as well,” Stoops said.Stoops said it’s good exposure for his program to have Dupree excelling at the combine.“Everybody’s watching these guys at the combine right now, and to see what a great athlete he is and how hard Bud worked, he deserves all that credit, but it’s also a credit to our strength and conditioning team, to see what they’re doing to help develop these guys,” Stoops said. “So hopefully that will give us some positive publicity here as we move forward.”Dupree had 74 tackles, including 12 ½ for losses (7 ½ sacks) as a senior and is widely projected as a first-round pick.“Bud has a great future,” Stoops said. “He really does, because as I’ve said many times – and you’ve heard me say it, but it’s so true – he’s very versatile and he’s very instinctual. He’s a very smart player to go along with all his physical skills. So he’s going to have a long career.”Steve Jones can be reached at (502) 582-7176 and followed on Twitter at @SteveJones_CJ.last_img read more

Trevor Noah responds to French ambassador who slammed him for saying “Africa won the World Cup”

first_imgBrad Barket/Comedy Central(NEW YORK) — Daily Show host Trevor Noah had a quick and clever response to the U.S. French ambassador who slammed the comedian on Wednesday for saying Africa deserved credit for France‘s 2018 World Cup victory due to the large number of black players on the team.Gerard Araud wrote a scathing letter, posted on Facebook and addressed to Noah, accusing him of “legitimizing” racist ideologies and denying the players’ “Frenchness” with his comments about their race and backgrounds.“I get it, they have to say it’s the French team,” Noah had said on Monday. “But look at those guys. You don’t get that tan by hanging out in the south of France, my friends.”Araud said he was watching “with great attention” on Monday, but he wasn’t laughing.“They were educated in France, they learned to play soccer in France, and they are French citizens,” Araud said. “They are proud of their country, France.”After Araud’s letter became viral, Noah was quick to respond.“When I’m saying ‘African,’ I’m not saying it to exclude them from their French-ness — I’m saying it to include them in my African-ness. I’m saying, ‘I see you, my French brother of African descent,” Noah said, later captured on video.“I will continue to praise them for being African because I believe they are of Africa — their parents are from Africa — and they can be French, because I believe they can both at the same time,” Noah explained. “And if French people are saying they can’t be, then I think they have a problem and not me.”“America’s not a perfect place,” he added, “but what I love about this country is that people can still celebrate their identity in their American-ness.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Ice bikes gain traction in bitterly cold Buffalo, New York

first_imgBUFFALO, N.Y. | If it were possible for anything to be hot in Buffalo this winter, it was the newfangled “ice bikes” that debuted at an outdoor skating rink.The bicycles on ice skates were an immediate hit when they glided onto the Ice at Canalside the day the new rink opened on the city’s waterfront. In a Feb. 25, 2015 photo, Lisa Florczak, founder of Ice Bikes of Buffalo, rides one of her inventions at the Ice at Canalside in Buffalo, N.Y., Feb. 25, 2015. Since the rental bikes debuted in December, Florczak has gotten inquiries from other cold-weather cities interested in rolling them out next year.

Since the rental bikes debuted in December, Ice Bikes of Buffalo founder Lisa Florczak has gotten inquiries from other cold-weather cities interested in rolling them out next year. (AP Photo/Carolyn Thompson) Since that December day, the bundled riders who have ignored breath-taking cold to rent them have convinced inventor Lisa Florczak that she’s onto something. That, and the inquiries from several other cold-weather cities in Wyoming, Michigan, Minnesota and Canada interested in rolling them out next year.“I had no idea if this would work or how people would respond,” Florczak said on a recent afternoon as some Parkinson’s patients tested the bikes for their exercise potential. “I thought I might end up being the laughingstock of the city.”Instead, she is relishing being part of Buffalo’s efforts to revitalize its waterfront and draw people year-round, even when the Lake Erie breeze is something more endured than enjoyed. The bikes give even nonskaters a chance to try out the ice, along with the warm nuts, hot cocoa and craft beer sold at nearby kiosks.Florczak’s family business, Water Bikes of Buffalo, was renting pontoon bikes that let riders pedal the Buffalo River in warmer months when economic development officials put out a call for ideas for the 33,000-square-foot ice rink being built nearby on a recreation of the Erie Canal.“They said the ice is going to be pretty large, and they thought they might need something more than just skating,” Florczak said.Curling, hockey and broomball leagues emerged.“I thought: ‘What a perfect opportunity to go from water biking to ice biking,’” Florczak said.She bought a bike off the rack at Wal-Mart and worked with General Welding and Fabricating in Elma on a design. The bikes had to be sturdy, not tip and co-exist with ice skaters. Prototype testing showed that sharper blades, like on ice skates, were too fast, as were flat blades that worked like a ski.The finished product is a 26-inch bike that sits on a rectangular base with a duller blade replacing the front wheel. Stainless steel so they don’t rust in the snow, they ride like a regular bicycle, only without the need to balance. Riders brake by pedaling backward.“It’s pretty neat,” said Dave Wolf, of East Amherst, after giving a bike a spin. “They take a little getting used to. No sharp turns. But once you get used to it, it’s a pretty nice ride.”Wolf, who has Parkinson’s disease, said he rides a three-wheel bike in the nice weather and likes the idea of a winter alternative.The inaugural year had 15 bikes on the ice on weekends only, with riders paying $10 for a half-hour turn. There are plans to sell kits that will let people convert their own bicycles for about $1,500 and the company is hoping for orders from other cities will make for a busy “offseason.”Ice Bikes of Buffalo, the name Florczak chose for the venture, is laser-cut into the running board. It was important, she said, that her city get its due if the bikes took off. She also wants to keep production local, after seeing relatives lose jobs during Buffalo’s economic struggles.“It’s been,” she said, “an incredible ride so far.”last_img read more

Pathologist disbands foundation fueled by ‘Concussion’ film
