He added that the drivers could be at an increased risk of contracting the virus as they interacted with people daily through their deliveries.Distributing masks is one of a dozen measures from the company to keep its employees and contracted workers safe during the pandemic. Gojek has distributed staple goods to drivers above 60 years old, has given staple-needs vouchers to younger drivers and has relaxed vehicle loan repayment requirements.Drivers who get COVID-19 or become a patient under treatment (PDP) can also receive financial aid from Gojek and its charity foundation Yayasan Anak Bangsa Kita. Gojek customers can help drivers by giving tips up to Rp 100,000 (US$5.89) using the in-app e-wallet feature.“Our drivers are facing uncertainties every day, and we just want to help ease their worry about the future,” said Gojek Co-CEO Kevin Aluwi.Previously, the company’s senior management cut their salaries to allocate more than Rp 100 billion to help drivers and employees cope with low demand as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.Topics : Homegrown ride-hailing app Gojek has received a permit from the National Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPB) and the Health Ministry to import 5 million masks to be distributed to its motorbike drivers and the country’s healthcare providers.The imports will add to the company’s previous distributions of masks, hand sanitizer and vitamins to its drivers in 80 cities in the country.“This import is to ensure that locally produced masks and other protective gear can be allocated to hospitals,” said Gojek’s independent commissioner Garibaldi Thohir in a written statement on Wednesday.

Wisconsin did not look ready for conference play in first game against BuckeyesWisconsin (3-5, 0-1 Big Ten) fell to Ohio State (6-3, 1-0 Big Ten) last Saturday in Madison 83-58 to open up Big Ten play for each team.Prior to what would be a disappointing loss to the Buckeye football program in the Big Ten Championship later in the day, the Badger basketball loss was perhaps even more disheartening.Men’s Basketball: Badgers look to turn season around as Big Ten play beginsMonday night, the University of Wisconsin men’s basketball team continue the early season portion of their Big Ten schedule with Read…Ohio State started out the game hot, shooting 78.3 percent from the field and 87.5 percent from 3 as a team before the half. Wisconsin simply could not keep up, as they shot less than 30 percent from both the field and beyond the arc for the first half.Unsurprisingly, Keita Bates-Diop was the main offensive weapon for the Buckeyes this game. The small forward shot 7-9 from the field with 17 points for a double-double with a team-high 11 rebounds and 5 assists.There are few positives to take away from this game, as star forward Ethan Happ was completely shut down for only 6 total shot attempts with the rest of his teammates unable to keep up. Freshmen Kobe King and Brian Davison were the only players with significant minutes to put up decent stat lines on the scoring end, each going 4-8 from the field.Men’s Basketball: Badgers run out of ammo in battle with CavaliersThe University of Wisconsin men’s basketball team fell short yet again in their ACC/Big Ten Challenge matchup against Virginia Monday Read…However, in limited minutes Nate Reuvers was also able to perform, going 4-4 from the field on 2-2 from three as a 6’10 true freshman. While the Badgers were dominated in practically every facet of this game, at least some of the younger players showed promise on the offensive end.The postseason outlook after this game appears bleak; The Badgers are 3-5 and have lost every game against power conference opponents this year. While in past games Wisconsin was at least able to stay competitive in their losses, the blowout against an unranked opponent leaves many wondering if Wisconsin will miss the NCAA tournament for the first time in 19 years.The last time the Badgers were in a situation this dire was 2 years ago where they began the season 6-5 with losses to Milwaukee, Marquette, and Western Illinois. Fortunately, the Badgers hot finish landed them a spot in the tournament that year and they will need a similar turn in momentum to reach that goal this season.
Citing “lack of clarity” on what the rankings were based on, the Press Council of India (PCI) has rejected the recently released Press Freedom Index in which India was ranked 138th among 180 countries, PTI reported.The World Press Freedom Index, published annually by Reporters Without Borders since 2002, looks into media freedom in 180 countries, judging them on various parameters, such as the level of pluralism, media independence, environment and self-censorship, legal framework, transparency, and the quality of the infrastructure that supports the production of news and information.In the report released on April 25, India dropped two spots, from No. 136 last year to No. 138. The report attributes the fall to incidents of physical attacks against journalists like Gauri Lankesh, who was shot dead outside her house in Bengaluru in September last year. The report also talks about Section 124a of the Indian Penal Code, which mentions life imprisonment for “sedition,” saying that the law encourages self-censorship.“In India, hate speech targeting journalists is shared and amplified on social networks, often by troll armies in Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s pay,” the report says.However, PCI dismissed the report. “We reject the rankings by the RWB. I am of the opinion that undue importance is given to the rankings. There is no clarity on the inputs that weighed in the ranking of a country,” PCI chairman Justice (retd) CK Prasad told the news agency.The Indian organization had written to the RWB a number of times to gain an understanding of how the index was prepared but did not get a response, Prasad said, adding that the rankings were “reportedly” based partly on a questionnaire sent to the partner organization of the RWF, its correspondents around the world, and journalists, researchers, jurists and human right activists.He went on to say that PCI has told the RWB that the rankings were not based on statistical data, but “based on opinion or perception of an individual or group of individuals.”After the World Press Freedom Index came out in 2015, the PCI wrote a letter to RWB on Sept. 22, 2015, which said: “In order to understand the gravity of the matter, the chairman of the Council desires to know the inputs which weighed in ranking of the country in the index so that remedial steps, if needed, can be taken to smoothen the functioning of the media.“The chairman is further of the opinion that a structured discussion on the issue with your (RWF) representative and the members of the Council would be helpful in achieving the objective.”The letters were also sent in October and December of the same year and in early in 2016, when the council said that the rankings “could either be on the basis of statistical data or perception of an individual or group of individuals.”The letter said: “If the ranking is on the basis of statistical data, the council requests you to share it with us, so as to enable us to take remedial measures as it deems proper. The council is constrained to communicate that if no data is shared, it shall have to come to the conclusion that India’s ranking in World Freedom Index is based on perception and is not supported by any verifiable data.” Related ItemsMedia
