House, govt make progress on data protection bill: Minister

first_imgCommunications and Information Minister Johnny G. Plate has said the government enjoyed a “swift and dynamic” session with lawmakers at the House of Representatives while deliberating the data protection bill. The minister said the government and lawmakers had agreed on 66 inputs in the so-called problem inventory list (DIM) during the recent meeting. The House aims to complete the bill by November. Johnny expressed his gratitude to House Commission I, which oversees communications and information affairs, for the “swift and dynamic” deliberation of the bill.“The government is ready and the public is waiting for us to produce adequate legal protection to safeguard their personal data,” Johnny said during Monday’s meeting with lawmakers, according to a statement from the ministry.House Commission I deputy speaker Abdul Kharis Almasyhari, who also led the meeting, confirmed Johnny’s statement on the 66 inputs.Read also: Indonesia to conclude data protection bill in NovemberThe data protection bill has fewer inputs than other recent bills under deliberation, such as the omnibus bill on job creation, which has at least 6,000 inputs, and the recently passed revision of the 2009 Coal and Mining Law that had 938 inputs.The data protection bill, a draft of which was assessed by the ministry in 2014, reportedly adopts several principles from the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which focuses on five main areas: data collection, data processing, data security, data breaches and the right for individuals to have their personal data erased. The country is lagging behind much of the world in terms of data protection, with numerous countries having already adopted their own version of the GDPR, including neighboring Singapore and Malaysia.Topics :last_img read more

Cricket News England women outclass India women in first Twenty20 in Barsapara

first_imghighlights India has lost five consecutive Twenty20 Internationals since 2018 World T20.India were whitewashed 3-0 in the series against New Zealand.India lost in the semi-final of the ICC World T20 in 2018 in West Indies. New Delhi: India’s woes in the shortest format of the game continued as they suffered their fifth straight loss in Twenty20 Internationals during the first game against England at Barsapara, Guwahati. Tammy Beaumont’s attacking fifty and a wonderfull spell of bowling from Katherine Brunt and Linsey Smith helped England register a 41-run win and take a 1-0 lead in the series. Beaumont was well assisted by Heather Knight as she smashed 40 off 20 balls to propel England to a healthy total. India won the toss and chose to bowl but they were undone by a solid opening stand of 89 from Danielle Wyatt and Beaumont. Both shared a partnership of 89 in just 11.3 overs and it took Shikha Pandey to break the stand. After getting Natalie Sciver cheaply, Beaumont shared a 59-run stand for the third wicket. Knight, in partciular, was severe on Arundhati Reddy as she smashed the bowler for five consecutive boundaries in the 18th over. After smashing Deepti Sharma for her sixth boundary, Knight departed for 40 but her onslaught helped England reach 160/4.In response, India started well with Sciver and Anya Shrubsole conceding nine and 11 runs respectively. Having contributed with the bat, Beaumont chipped in with the ball by getting rid of debutant Harleen Deol for eight. That brought about a terrible collapse from which India never recovered.RELATEDSmriti Mandhana, who was the in-form player for India in the recent New Zealand series and ODIs against England, holed out to long on off the bowling of Linsey Smith for 2. Jemimah Rodrigues fell in the same over for 2 and their fate was sealed when Mithali Raj fell to Kate Cross for 7. With Veda Krishnamurthy struggling to get going, India managed just 46/5 in 10 overs and the asking rate was over 10.Arundhati Reddy and Shikha Pandey only delayed the inevitable as India slumped to a big loss. Having been whitewashed 0-3 recently in the series against New Zealand, India’s woes in the shortest format continue, following their loss to England in the semi-final of the ICC World T20, 2018 which was held in the West Indies.The second Twenty20 International will be played at the same venue on March 7 and England will be hoping to take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series. center_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.last_img read more

Fantasy Injury Updates: Jordan Howard, Damien Williams, David Montgomery, Le’Veon Bell impact Week 11 start ’em, sit ’em calls

first_imgWEEK 11 NON-PPR RANKINGS:Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST  | KickerIs Jordan Howard playing Week 11?UPDATE: Howard is officially OUT. Howard (stinger) was limited in practice in practice all week and is officially “questionable” for Sunday’s game against the Patriots. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported late Saturday night that Howard is not expected to play.With a 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff, fantasy owners need to have a late-game/prime-time fill-in ready if they want to wait out Howard. Given the tough matchup, Howard probably isn’t worth waiting for anyway, so go ahead and start someone from the early games if he has a better matchup. Miles Sanders would see additional touches and a worthwhile FLEX if Howard is out, with Jay Ajayi mixing in and likely getting a decent amount of carries.WEEK 11 PPR RANKINGS:  Running back | Wide receiver | Tight endIs Damien Williams playing Monday night?UPDATE: Williams rejoined the Chiefs and is expected to play Monday night.Williams (personal reasons) was listed as “questionable” for Monday night’s game against the Chargers, but Chiefs coach Andy Reid said the starting RB “should” make the trip to Mexico City with the team.We will know Sunday whether Williams made the trip, and as long as he does, he’ll worth starting as an RB2. If he doesn’t, look for LeSean McCoy and Darrel Williams to get additional touches, making both legitimate FLEX options.WEEK 11 DFS LINEUPS:Y! cash | Y! GPP | DK cash | DK GPP | FD cash | FD GPPIs David Montgomery playing Week 11?UPDATE: Montgomery is officially ACTIVE.After rolling his ankle in practice on Wednesday, Montgomery missed practice on Thursday and got in a limited session on Friday. He’s “questionable” for Sunday night’s game against the Rams. Montgomery looks like a true game-time decision, and given the timing of the game, most owners likely can’t afford to wait for him. If he’s out, Tarik Cohen and Ryan Nall would likely split RB touches, so unless you have one of them or can pick up someone like Darrel Williams, it’s not worth it to wait on Montgomery.MORE WEEK 11 DFS: Values | Stacks | Lineup BuilderLe’Veon Bell injury updateUPDATE 2: Bell is officially ACTIVE. UPDATE: Bell is expected to be active today, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. Bell (ribs, illness) practiced on a limited basis all week and is officially “questionable” for Sunday’s game against the Redskins.  After playing through a knee injury last week, it seems likely Bell will suit up against Washington. If he doesn’t, Bilal Powell will handle the majority of the RB touches. MORE WEEK 11: Sleepers | Busts | Start ’em, sit ’em Every matchup feels like a must-win from here on out for fantasy football owners, and knowing the latest RB injury updates on Sunday morning are key to making those last-minute start ’em, sit ’em decisions. Heading into Week 11, Jordan Howard, Damien Williams, David Montgomery, Le’Veon Bell, and Raheem Mostert are all “questionable” (with Matt Breida listed as “doubtful” and Ty Johnson not on the Lions final injury report), so we’ll provide the latest news on them right here throughout the day. For updates on banged-up pass-catchers Marquise Brown, Emmanuel Sanders, and Gerald Everett, click here; for the Week 11 weather report, go here. Follow us at  @SN_Fantasy for more news and updates. Raheem Mostert injury newsUPDATE: Mostert is officially ACTIVE.Mostert (knee) was limited in practice all week and is “questionable” for Sunday’s late-afternoon game against Arizona.Because Matt Breida (ankle) is “doubtful” Mostert’s status matters. He would be in line for about a dozen touches as the complementary back to Tevin Coleman. If Mostert is also out, Jeff Wilson Jr. would likely operate as San Francisco’s No. 2 and could be a sneaky FLEX play in standard leagues.last_img read more
