first_img“Indonesia’s economic outlook will now depend on the ability to stimulate recovery after a drastic deterioration in economic activity,” Finance Minister Sri Mulyani Indrawati told lawmakers in a hearing on July 9.She expects the economy to contract 0.4 percent this year under the worst-case scenario or grow 1 percent under the baseline scenario.The government expects the fiscal deficit to reach 6.34 percent this year as it allocates Rp 695.2 trillion (US$48.23 billion) in stimuli to strengthen the country’s healthcare response and bolster the economy amid the pandemic.Officials are now looking to accelerate spending to boost economic recovery and strengthen the country’s virus response after receiving criticism from President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo as well as from business and health communities for the slow disbursement of stimulus funds.Topics : The government and the House of Representatives have agreed in principle on 2021 state budget assumptions with a deficit of 4.7 percent of gross domestic product (GDP) to bolster the economy from the coronavirus-induced recession.The budget deficit is expected to reach 3.21 percent to 4.17 percent of GDP next year, but the government can widen the fiscal deficit to 4.7 percent if needed to fully support the recovery, said House Budget Committee vice chairman Muhidin Mohamad Said.“The government’s 2021 work plan is being directed to support economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, boost human development, as well as industrial and tourism development,” among other things, he told a plenary meeting on Tuesday. President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo will announce the detailed 2021 state budget, including exact revenue and expenditure figures, during his annual speech on Aug. 16.The government and the House agreed that the assumption underpinning the 2021 state budget would see state spending reach 13.11 percent to 15.17 percent of GDP, while tax revenue is expected to reach 8.25 percent to 8.63 percent and nontax income 1.6 percent to 2.3 percent of GDP.Indonesia’s economy could enter a recession in the third quarter this year as the government expects GDP to shrink by 3.8 percent to 5.1 percent in the second quarter and to decline by a further 1 percent in the third quarter.If the economy shrinks in the third quarter, it will mark Indonesia’s first recession since the 1998 Asian financial crisis. A recession happens when an economy shrinks in two consecutive quarters.last_img read more

first_imgFor example, fentanyl was the culprit in 41 percent of accidental overdose deaths in Delray Beach, exceeding the other opiates such as heroin or oxycodone in the capacity to kill, according to the county medical examiner’s analysis. At the same time, fentanyl deaths are on the rise. The report states that the drug killed 2,348 people in our state last year, a 35 percent increase from the 1,743 people who died from it two years ago. -278 people in Palm Beach County, down from 285 in 2017.-271 people in Broward County, up from 244 in 2017.-141 people in Miami-Dade County, down from 195 in 2017. Fentanyl deaths are increasing in Florida, and more occurred in Palm Beach County last year than anywhere else in the state, according to a new report published by the state’s Medical Examiners Commission. At the height of the opioid epidemic, thousands of addicted people came to Palm Beach County to recover, lured by insurance providers but often unable to make progress. The city has seen 274 overdoses so far this year, with 37 of them being fatal. In 2018, Delray Beach had 245 overdoses, down from 625 the previous year. Subsequently, coroner’s offices became inundated with overdose cases.Two years ago, state lawmakers labeled fentanyl as a murder weapon, joining cocaine, heroin and other dangerous narcotics in that category.In addition, officials have worked to combat the situation since 2016 with the help of lawyers, health officials, police and rehab specialists. While that has reduced the backlog at the medical examiner’s office, overdoses cases remain an issue. From an overall standpoint, opioid deaths have decreased statewide, from 4,280 in 2017 to 3,727 last year.

As part of the new system changes, punters will have the option to decide which currency they wish to place a bet in. Wagers will then be stored in any one of the supported currencies, and can then mixed on both the bet history and in the underlying smart contracts.Launching the new multi-currency betting, BETR Founder Adriaan Brink commented: “Today we introduce native ETH betting – a bettor can now bet in either BETR or ETH. If you bet in ETH you will be paid winnings in ETH. Simple. And it works. Seamlessly.”Once a customer has decided upon a currency, the bet will be recorded, along with a fixed exchange rate which will be used to calculate any possible winnings. The bet will be laid against the peer-to-peer layer at the BETR amount according to this rate. From the perspective of the person laying the bet, this will be a BETR bet. Layers will always lay in BETR, and the underlying escrows will also occur in BETR. In addition to the laid bets, affiliate payouts revenue shares and the underlying liquidity pool will also remain in that currency.Brink, commenting on the possible implications of this technological innovation added: “Looking to the future, this brings an exciting addition to our platform.  We are working on adding cross-chain cryptocurrencies such as EOS and LTC to the client and hope to have more news on these soon. “We are also, as a part of this change, moving to a technical architecture where we will be able to operate across multiple core systems, be it Ethereum, EOS or any other performant cryptocurrency.”last_img read more
