    Ironically, the Contribution of the Logistics Sector is High But The Costs Are Also Exorbitant

    JAKARTA – Indonesia is listed as one of the countries with the highest logistics cost. Indonesia’s logistics cost comparison to gross domestic product (GDP) is about 26%.

    Vice Chairman of Kadin for Logistics and Supply Chain Rico Rustombi said it was an irony. The reason, based on data Kadin logistics sector contribution to GDP reached 7.16%.

    “The contribution of the logistics sector is very large, so if the logistics cost comparison to GDP can be reduced to 20% it will be extraordinary,” he said in Jakarta on Thursday (5/10/2017).

    Every Breath You Take

    (10/4/2017)

    Volunteers from the Anand Ashram Foundation are providing yoga therapy sessions to some of the more than 95,000 people who have evacuated their homes surrounding volcanic Mt. Agung following a “Level IV – Awas” alert.

     

    The chairman of the Foundation, Dr. Sayoga, told the State News Agency Antara that training and exercises focused on breathing techniques as a means of facing challenges and eliminating stress.


    The Foundation, founded by spiritual leader Anand Krishnan, has sent 30 volunteers to lead yoga breathing sessions for the evacuees who have been displaced by the volcano alert.

    Separate sessions were organized separately for both children and adults in order to learn exercises that are designed to make their lives less stressful.

     

    Dr. Sayoga said the team of volunteers would continue to conduct training and therapy sessions to all the evacuees of Mt. Agung who are now spread across temporary camps in all regencies of Bali.
     

    “I also provided yoga training when Mt. Merapi exploded in Yogyakarta,” explained Dr. Sayoga.
     

    One of the displaced villagers, Ketut Kayun, said he enjoyed receiving the yoga training provided by the foundation, while expressing the hope to follow more sessions so he could fully appreciate its beneficial effects.

    Another Balinese priest has climbed to the top of the rumbling and smoking volcano in Bali that is threatening to erupt at any moment now.

    A group of Balinese priests shocked the internet last week when they hiked up Mount Agung on Sept. 29 to pray and check out the highly hazardous situation for themselves.

    Mount Agung, located in Bali’s Karangasem regency, has been at the highest alert, level IV status since Sept. 22, for fear that it will erupt again for the first time since 1963. After being on the highest level for so long, it seems people are starting to doubt how likely it really is that the volcano will erupt. But volcanologists insist that though seismic activity has been somewhat fluctuating since the volcano got upgraded to a level IV status, we are not out of the red yet
