Processing ‘qurban’ meat before distribution is allowed: MUI

first_imgHe explained that the cattle meat was traditionally distributed immediately after the animal was slaughtered so that people in need could receive it as soon as possible. But given the current situation, he said processing the meat before distributing it was safer, especially for people affected by COVID-19.“Since it may be difficult for these people to cook it themselves, it is permissible to distribute the meat through cooked food or other processed foods,” he said.If there is an abundance of meat during Idul Adha, the meat can also be preserved and distributed at a later time as stipulated in MUI Fatwa No. 37/2019.The Religious Affairs Ministry recently banned the public celebration of Idul Adha in areas considered “unsafe from COVID-19” by their respective regional administrations. Indonesia’s second-largest Muslim group, Muhammadiyah, also encouraged Muslims to convert their qurban to sadaqah (alms) to help those who had been hit hard by the pandemic, or to do both if they could afford it, as Muhammadiyah acknowledged that the health crisis had caused social and economic problems that had forced many into poverty.Topics : The Indonesian Ulema Council (MUI) announced recently that processing qurban (sacrificial cattle) meat prior to distribution is allowed due to health concerns amid the COVID-19 pandemic.In a written statement received by The Jakarta Post on Wednesday, MUI fatwa commission secretary Asrorun Niam Sholeh said meat sacrificed on Idul Adha (Day of Sacrifice) could be processed into canned food, or cooked into rendang (slow-cooked meat in coconut milk and spices).last_img read more

Glenmark’s favipiravir version shows promise in late-stage COVID-19 trial

first_imgIndia’s Glenmark Pharmaceuticals Ltd said on Wednesday its version of anti-flu drug favipiravir showed promise in a late-stage study of 150 patients with mild to moderate coronavirus infection.Data showed that patients receiving FabiFlu shook off the virus about 29% faster that those receiving standard supportive care.About 70% of the patients being treated with the drug achieved “clinical cure” by the fourth day of the study, compared with about 45% in the standard care group, the company said in a statement. Clinical cure is defined as a physician’s assessment of the normalization of clinical signs of COVID-19 such as temperature, oxygen saturation, respiratory rate and cough.FabiFlu was also well tolerated with no serious adverse events or deaths in the treatment arm, the company said, adding that it plans to submit the study data for peer review in the coming weeks.Glenmark last month received Indian regulatory approval to make and sell FabiFlu for restricted emergency use in patients with mild-to-moderate COVID-19 symptoms, and last week cut the price of the drug to 75 rupees ($1.01) per tablet.

Czech and Polish Officials Visit Port of Gdansk

first_imgMembers of Parliament from the Czech Republic, the Marshal of the Senate of the Republic of Poland Stanislaw Karczewski, and the Pomeranian Governor Dariusz Drelich visited the Port of Gdansk last week. The meeting between the representatives of the Port of Gdansk Authority and the delegates from the Czech Republic was held at the Port Master’s Office at Port Polnocny.During the meeting, the transport potential and the handling capacity of Gdansk’s port were presented in the context of trade between Poland and the Czech Republic.“The Czech Republic has huge export potential. Thanks to the purchasing power, we can increase our handling capacity,” said Slawomir Michalewski, the Vice-President of Financial Affairs at the Port of Gdansk.“The flow of cargo exported from the Czech Republic by sea to non-EU countries constituted about 27% of the entire export in the previous years. For comparison, in Poland export was at the level of 38%.

According to the front page of Tuesday’s edition of Marca, the relationship is ‘broken’ and there are ‘no solutions’ for the situation to improve. It cites the Welshman’s appearance from the bench in Sunday’s 3-1 win over Eibar, in which the player looked demotivated and did not show any warmth to Zidane on the timeline. The 30-year-old has only scored two goals in La Liga this season and none since the 2-2 draw at Villarreal in early September, finding himself a peripheral figure this campaign. Bale remained at Madrid beyond the January transfer window despite reports linking him with a return to Tottenham, while a transfer to China collapsed last summer.Advertisement Loading… A report last month in Marca claimed that Newcastle United will make signing Bale their priority once their Saudi-backed takeover is processed next month.

Dutch soccer players boycott TV show over Black Pete remarks

first_imgRelatedPosts Bergwijn scores winner as Netherlands edge Poland Ebonyi holds LG poll amidst opposition boycott Fani-Kayode: Cross River NUJ boycotts government activities The Dutch men’s and women’s national football team players said on Friday they would no longer grant interviews to a popular TV show due to remarks made by a commentator mocking an anti-racism protester.In a statement first published on Twitter by men’s team captain Virgil van Dijk, the players said they would no longer speak with the Veronica Inside programme. This was after the host compared a prominent Dutch black activist to “Black Pete”.Black Pete is a fictional character in Dutch winter holiday celebrations usually portrayed by white people wearing black face paint – a tradition criticised this week by US civil rights leader Jesse Jackson as offensive.“This is not on the edge, this has nothing to do with humour, this is not the language of football,” said Liverpool defender Van Dijk.The national football association KNVB told national broadcaster NOS that it stood behind the players.Veronica Inside host Johan Derksen said earlier on Friday that he did not regret his comments. “I didn’t think the joke was really that bad, for me,” he told newspaper Algemeen Dagblad.“This is a storm in a teacup that will blow over,” Derksen said.Several show sponsors, including supermarket retail giant Ahold, said on Friday they would stop advertising during the show, which is aired by Talpa, a company owned by billionaire Dutch media mogul John de Mol.“We are in discussions with the channel and have indicated that we do not wish to advertise during this programme,” Ahold said in a statement.“There is no room for discrimination at Albert Heijn,” it said, referring to the largest Dutch supermarket chain. Procter & Gamble said it would no longer advertise its Gillette razor blades during the programme, broadcaster NOS reported.P&G could not immediately be reached for comment.Reuters/NAN.Tags: Black Pete RemarksBoycottNetherlandsSoccer Playerslast_img read more

Wisconsin eyes Mercyhurst without WCHA tournament title

first_imgOnce again, the Wisconsin women’s hockey team (31-4-2, 23-3-2) has put itself in solid position to return to the Frozen Four for the second consecutive season. The top-seeded Badgers will be in familiar territory Saturday as they host Mercyhurst College (23-7-3, 8-1-3) in a quarterfinal matchup at the Kohl Center.Despite a tough loss to Minnesota-Duluth Friday night in the WCHA Conference Championship, head coach Mark Johnson said he has little concern about where his team stands. Johnson discussed the lessons that can be learned from this loss and how it will help going into the NCAA tournament quarterfinals against Mercyhurst at his Monday press conference.“I don’t have any concerns about this team compared to past teams,” Johnson said. “The important part is how we react to Friday night’s loss. Every game teaches you something, and we must learn from it. Whether you win or lose, you wake up and look at what you did well or what you need to improve on. We didn’t play the best game, but you take it and move on.”It’s an exciting time of the season, as the Badgers sit just a single victory away from a trip to the Frozen Four. Wisconsin will have the chance to prepare for a full week and build the focus that will be critical this weekend, as every game from this point on could be the team’s last.The single-game elimination format poses a challenge to any team hoping to make a Frozen Four run, but the Badgers have played well in games like this before and understand the preparation that goes into a big matchup. With that said, they remain excited about the opportunity to play in front of their home crowd.“As a staff and team, we are excited about hosting a quarterfinal game and look forward to the game on Saturday,” Johnson said. “We get an opportunity to have a full week’s worth of preparation at the Kohl Center. We are in a good position, and it’s time to get to work for Saturday’s game.”Securing home ice should be a major advantage for the Badgers, as they have only lost two games this season in Madison. The Kohl Center is a hostile environment and will likely pose a challenge itself for Mercyhurst.Despite being one of the most successful programs in the tournament, historically, the Badgers are not taking Mercyhurst lightly, as the Lakers have won four out of their last six games. UW’s opponent just came off a tough loss against Robert Morris University and is looking for a spark heading into the game.“I don’t know much about Mercyhurst,” Johnson said. “Anyone is capable of winning, and the team that executes is the one who should win. I’m looking forward to the preparation and challenge. It will be nice to have the crowd behind us, which usually generates some excitement and energy. For a student-athlete, players tend to feed off of that.”Sophomore goaltender Alex Rigsby was a major subject of the press conference, as Mark Johnson spoke at length about her play. The Badgers’ record stands at 31-4-2 when Rigsby has been in the net for Wisconsin, and on the season Rigsby has 973 saves and a .952 save percentage.Rigsby has made huge contributions to a team that finished the regular season with 29 victories, and her effort this season has appeared to reignite the Badgers’ play. Wisconsin will need a big effort from her as it looks to knock off Mercyhurst. “Alex is starting to understand that patience is a vital part to being a goaltender,” Johnson said. “She learned a lot last year and looks comfortable. She has gained a lot of confidence.”The Badgers will be ready to compete Saturday night as they look to pursue their second consecutive national championship.In a tough playoff, single game elimination environment, the team that executes in crucial parts of the game and avoids small but costly mistakes will likely emerge victorious. The Badgers will look to gain significant momentum with the crowd behind them, as this is the final stretch for a Wisconsin team that has played at a high level all season.“The first leg of the season went well by winning the conference championship,” Johnson said. “The last two weeks haven’t gone as well, but we are alive and still playing.”last_img read more
