    To Erupt or Not to Erupt? That’s the Question.

    (10/27/2017)

    The head of the subsection for the Volcanic Eruption Mitigation Agency (PVMG), Devy Kamil Syahbana, has explained that based on recorded data, the magma reservoirs below Mount Agung in Bali have not managed to find a outlet on the mountain’s surface.

    Quoted by Metrobali.com, Devy said on Monday, October 23,2017, “At this time, the magma is still insufficient to penetrate the surface. There is still a cover that is stronger than the power of the subterranean magma. The magma continues to battle against this protective layer.”

    Based on this factor, theoretically there are three possible scenarios regarding the future of Mount Agung. First, said Devy, if there is a new supply of magma the reservoir will be reenergized to continue its journey to the surface. “If this happens,” he said, “then the potential of an eruption in the near term is possible.”

    The second possibility, if there is a new supply of magma, but in a small quantity, then the magma will cause more earth tremors, but only on a small and continuing basis. Adding: “In this instance, then the possibility of an eruption in the near future remains small, but the chance of an eruption in the long term will continue.”

    The third scenario, Devy outlined is if there is no new supply of magma, then a “de-gassing” process will occur in which gas seeps from the magma reducing its mobility. “In time, the magma will crystallize and when that happens, the chance of an eruption will diminish,” said Devy.

    The PVMG is currently evaluating all data from Mount Agung to determine which of the three scenarios apply in the current situation.

    Safety First: Udeng over helmet is the latest trend sweeping Balinese social media

    The latest trend sweeping the island: udeng over helm. Left: Instagram/@nesakualit. Right: Facebook/Bobby Alcoholicrider

    Wearing the traditional Balinese Hindu udeng headband atop a motorcycle helmet is the latest thing on Bali social media.

    Teens to middle-aged dudes have been posting pictures of themselves sporting udeng over their helmets.

    Indonesian police have been known to give a free pass to motorcycle riders wearing religious or cultural garb like the hijab and the Javanese blangkon, along with the Balinese udeng—there’s even a governor’s decree in Bali that exempts men wearing udeng from getting into trouble with traffic police.

    But road safety has been a hot topic in Bali, now that the island’s traffic police unit has launched its annual two-week Operation Zebra from Nov. 1 to 14, a period where police crack down on road violations, including folks driving on motorbike sans helmet.

    The director of Bali Police’s traffic unit, Supt. AA Made Sudana has said men wearing udeng won’t get in trouble because of the governor decree exempting religious headwear, but on the municipal level, Gianyar Regency Police Supt. Djoni Widodo said he wouldn’t be as forgiving and those without helmets would get reprimanded, udeng or not.

    And so, a form of protest, the udeng-atop-helmet look was apparently born.

    While some people sporting the udeng over helmet look seem to be doing so in jest, one man whose video has gotten over 8,000 views on Facebook, as of Thursday evening, seems quite serious about the whole “safety first” issue, encouraging others to prioritize safety.

    Commenters on these udeng-helmet posts have been all over the place, from calling the look ‘stupid’ and ‘pointless’; why not just bring the udeng with you and put it on after you remove your helmet, wonder some. And is it disrespectful to go about like this, ponder others. But some are applauding the creativity of the trend and think it’s a great way to get past cops.

    Do we forecast this look overtaking Bali and enduring? Probably not past Operation Zebra, but maybe it’ll make a reappearance for next year’s traffic violations crackdown.
