The governor general is elected by the state’s National Parliament as the queen’s personal representative on the islands. The role is largely ceremonial, but the post holder does retain some reserved powers.Read the full article here.

The Lolly Gaggers Guide to Triathlon Training

first_imgLauren & Gracie Dog, not being athleticGracie and Lauren being sleepy and not athleticRunners World says if you are fit you can train for a triathlon in 6 weeks. No really, read the article.There is a website for beginner triathletes that provides free coaching and online training logs.Another website has a very handy 93 page training schedule for folks wanting to complete their first sprint triathlon.I have read all the articles, browsed books that were left on my bed side table by the triathlon fairy, and even fleetingly considered a training log. But there is one little problem. None, and I mean not one single resource accounts for the fact that I am a wuss and sometimes don’t want to bike, swim or run in a given day.I am a soft core athlete. Often my motivation to exercise is the extra snacks I will get to have later. Yes, I feel better when I am done. Yes, I like being fit. Yes, I know it is good for me… but so is sitting in a hammock and reading a good book. Are you with me?So when I decided to “train” for my first triathlon (the Patriot Triathlon in Williamsburg Virginia Sept 11 – 12, 2010), I knew it would be on my terms. And what are those terms? I am not totally sure.I can run a 5k.I can swim for a long time.I can tolerate a 16-20 mile bike although there will be some complaining on the way.Oh, more importantly, I am stubborn, and sometimes lazy and am frankly shocked that no one in my shoes has apparently ever tried one of these races.When I googled “lolly gagger triathlon” all I got were blogs by actual jocks who were commenting on how they were not lolly gaggers.There is nothing out there for someone like me. So, I will chart my own course as the say.Training schedule: Do stuff, as much as a I feel like it for as long as I can.Nutrition: I am mostly vegan so I think I will be ok.Cross Training: Yes. Yoga and dog walking count, right?Race day goals: Not to walk or drown.If you too want to be a lolly gagger and train for a sprint triathlon, good luck. My only advice is have fun. If you want to keep up with my lack of training, or general athletic laziness, you can follow my tri-blog. If you are a real athlete, I totally encourage you to read. I will make you feel much better about your purposeful training and skills.last_img read more

Indonesia’s family resilience bill says housekeeping wife’s duty

first_imgTopics : “[…] I may violate the family resilience law. [When] the husband is at home and the wife is working in Papua then who will take care of the household, huh?” she tweeted.Hahahahah bisa2 aku melanggar UU Ketahanan Keluarga.Suami di rumah, istri kerja di Papua. Yg ngurus rumah tangga siapa hah??? 🤭 https://t.co/8pVjO1jQlU— Ligwina Hananto (@mrshananto) February 19, 2020Meanwhile, Indonesia Solidarity Party (PSI) executive Tsamara Amany tweeted her criticism through her account @TsamaraDKI on Wednesday, implying that it was not the government’s job to interfere in the private lives of couples.“The state is trying to control the households of its citizens. Now, the role of husbands and wives is intended to be arranged according to certain perspectives in law! There is no definite responsibility of a husband or wife. The duties of the two depend on their own agreement – not the country’s regulation,” she said.Negara mencoba ingin mengatur rumah tangga warga negara. Peran suami-istri kini hendak diatur menurut perspektif tertentu dalam perundangan! Tak ada kewajiban suami atau istri secara pasti. Kewajiban keduanya tergantung kesepakatan. Bukan aturan negara.https://t.co/Qdc8OpOgs9— Tsamara Amany (@TsamaraDKI) February 19, 2020The family resilience bill was initiated by five politicians from several factions in the House. Three of them are women.They are Ledia Hanifa and Netty Prasetiyana, both from the Islam-based Prosperous Justice Party (PKS), Endang Maria Astuti from the Golkar Party, Sodik Mudjahid from the Gerindra Party and Ali Taher from the National Mandate Party (PAN). Many Indonesians would agree that traditional households – which typically assign domestic roles based on gender, with the husband as the breadwinner and the wife in charge of household chores and children – should be a thing of the past.However, a draft bill on so-called family resilience, which has been floated at the House of Representatives, apparently wants to challenge the idea by bringing back the traditional way of managing households.Article 25 of the draft bill, a copy of which was obtained by The Jakarta Post, stipulates that husband and wives “are responsible for performing their individual roles in accordance with religious norms, social ethics and the prevailing laws”.center_img The article stipulates that only the husband has the obligation to be the breadwinner and to fulfill the family’s welfare and household needs, as well as to protect himself and the family from “mistreatment, exploitation and sexual deviation”.Point 3 of the article stipulates that housewives “are responsible for managing household affairs as best as possible” and to maintain the family’s unity, as well as to fulfill the rights and treat their husband and children well based on, among other factors, religious norms.The bill, one of the 50 bills listed as priority bills in the 2020 National Legislation Program (Prolegnas), has received criticism from the public, with many women calling it patriarchal in nature. Financial planner Ligwina Hananto criticized the bill through a post on her Twitter account @mrshananto.last_img read more
