Round and Round and Where they Go
Google Userís Voice Study in Bali Tracks Wheelchair Usage in Developing Countries

United Cerebral Palsy Wheels for Humanity (UCPWH) is launching a world-first Google User’s Voice (GUV) Pilot Study to collect data on how disabled people use wheelchairs in a developing country and determine the impact appropriate wheelchair use makes on the life of the disabled.

The lessons learned from the Google User’s Voice Project will improve the way that wheelchairs are designed and how they are provided to users in developing country settings. Funded by Google.org, the Wheelchair Study is touted as one of the “big ideas that use technology to expand opportunity and independence for people with disabilities.”

UCPWH received a million dollars in funding for GUV, under the Google Impact Challenge 2015 - Disabilities.

The GUV Project will provide for decision-makers regarding the best ways to assist wheelchair users in achieving their personal goals and aspirations.

In the study, sensors are attached to the wheels of six different types of wheelchairs in Bali. They are activated by motion so once they move they will continually collect data on durability, performance, distance traveled and other factors.

Users also receive a monthly questionnaire sent via SMS enquiring about how often daily participants use their wheelchair, their satisfaction, and their general state of health.

High-quality data is transmitted back to the GUV Cloud Platform allowing the team to continually track changes in the users’ independence, health, and overall quality-of-life.

“It gives us the opportunity to analyze the social, health and economic impact as well as the wheelchair usage and quality,” said Dr Karen Reyes, a wheelchair user, from UCP Wheels for Humanity. 

The Canadian Wheelchair Foundation is sponsoring the wheelchairs used in this pilot study thru Rotary Club Bali Taman. Meanwhile, a group of Rotarians from Canada has provided funds for the wheelchairs.

Indonesia has the world’s 4th largest population and 11 million people have a disability, which is 4.5% of the population.

70 million people globally need a wheelchair and only between 5 – 15% have access to one. People with a disability are less likely to attend school than non-disabled children and experience higher rates of unemployment making them more vulnerable to poverty. While a billion people have a disability globally, 80 % of those with mobility issues live in developing countries and 1% of this population needs a wheelchair.

The project’s partners are the World Health Organization, MIT-CITE (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) and the Universitas Gadjah Mada, International Society of Wheelchair Professionals and PUSPADI Bali.Anchor

During the GUV Pilot Project, 150 people will receive an appropriate wheelchair from PUSPADI Bali -  an NGO providing rehabilitation to local people with a disability.

In August 2017, a full study including 300 wheelchairs in Indonesia and 300 in Nicaragua will commence.

“Ultimately this research is about bringing the wheelchair user’s voice to the forefront in policy and philanthropy decisions as well as moving away from the massive volume donation, one-size-fits-all thinking. We will demonstrate with real facts that an appropriate wheelchair is a difference maker by boosting participation and inclusion for people with a disability,” Dr. Reyes said.

“Under the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) it is recognized that independent mobility is a human right and people with disabilities are entitled to demand access to an appropriate wheelchair,” she said.

Dr. Reyes believes there needs to be a holistic approach to boost inclusion for people with a disability in developing countries.

Health in Baliís Hills
Rebooting the mind and Body in the Highlands of Bali

Medical Tourism Magazine – a popular print and online publication targeted on a readership of international medical professionals has published a thoughtful expose on community-based and sustainable tourism as it is practiced at the Visesa Ubud.

According to the article, the Visesa Ubud champions Balinese culture and sustainable tourism in every operational aspect of a hotel referred to as the “Desa Visesa” or “Visesa Village” by the surrounding community.

With only 66 pool villas and 40 suites on a very generous 6.5 hectare site, Desa Visesa Ubud includes a working permaculture farm where guests and staff members harvest produce for the Resort’s tables; a working padi field in the middle of a dining venue; profoundly beautiful Balinese architectural finishes at every turn, consultations with Balian holy men; and an entire range of traditional experiences normally only available to Island natives.

Order Your Pork Well Done!
Bali Health Officials Confirm Cases of Encephalitis Linked to Consumption of Pork Products

Laboratory tests conducted at the Sanglah General Hospital in Denpasar, Bali on a patient suspected to be suffering from Chikungunya - a painful mosquito born disease, have yielded results confirming a positive cases of streptococcus suis infection.

As reported by Balipost.com, the head of the Bali Provincial Health Department, Dr. Ketut Suarjaya, confirmed the presence of the streptococcus suis virus on Friday, March 10, 2017.

Streptococcus suis is a viral encephalic infection linked to contact with live pigs or with the consumption of pork meat that has been undercooked. Pork is a popular food item among Bali's majority Hindu population.

Inspectors from the Health Department discovered the infection after receiving complaints from 18 people suffering from fevers and headaches after consuming pork meat from local vendors. From the 18 people exhibiting symptoms, 7 were hospitalized at the Kapal General Hospital with three requiring intensive-care treatment for seizures.

Health researchers investigating the outbreak found that none of the patients were living in close proximity to a pigsty. Researchers are now focusing on trying to determine if any of the patients consumed pork-based items from a common vendor.

Streptococcus suis infections are transmitted through direct contact with pigs or the consumption of incorrectly prepared pork products. Among those considered at high risk to the disease are pig breeders, slaughterhouse workers, meat processing and transport workers, butchers, and cooks. Individuals who have comprised immune systems due to diabetes, cancer, and alcoholism are also considered at higher risk.


ĎTill Kingdom Come
Bali Awaits Coming Boom in Middle Eastern Tourists

Bali’s Provincial Tourism Office predicts that visitor totals from the Middle East to Bali will increase dramatically following the visit of Saudi Arabian King Salman bin Abdul Aziz Al-Saud to Bali March 4-12, 2017.

Speaking to the State News Agency Antara, the head of Provincial Tourism, Anak Agung Gede Yuniartha Putra, said he hoped the visit to Bali by the Saudi King would pave the way for more visits from tourists from the Middle East.

Yuniartha said the visitors from the Middle East to Bali have averaged 40,000 tourists per year. The Bali tourism office is now predicting that number will grow to 100,000-150,000 per year in the near future.

Balidiscovery.com reports that in 2016 a total of 48,484 Middle Eastern tourists came directly to Bali, an increase of 59.33% from the 30,644 Middle Eastern tourists who came to Bali in 2015.

Tourism officials are encouraged at the prospect of more Middle Eastern Tourist to Bali seen as having higher-average-spends and longer lengths-of-stays (5 days) than other groups coming to the Island.

A Place to Stay Quiet
Celebrating Silence at the AYODYA Resort Bali

Product Update

On Tuesday, March 28, 2017, the Island of Bali will welcome the Hindu New Year of Saka 1939 by “closing down” as a shroud of silence descends for a 24-hour period starting from before sunrise on the day known as “Nyepi”.

During this period, all sea and airports will close, broadcast stations - including cable networks will go silent, streets will empty of all traffic, and Island visitors will be confined to their hotel for the entire period.

While, in the past, many shunned being on Bali during “Nyepi” - an increasing number of discerning travelers now flock to the Island for the unique experience of a “society in eclipse” that retreats into the shadows for 24 hours to meditate and reflect on the past while contemplating what lies ahead.

Also embracing the spirit and meaning of “Nyepi” is the AYODYA Resort Bali located within the Nusa Dua complex on South Bali. Balinese in every architectural detail, there is perhaps no better place to surrender completely to a day mandated for minimized and mindful human activity than in one of the 537 elegant rooms of the AYODYA.

Like other resorts and hotels in Bali on “Nyepi,” – both the Resort’s staff and the guests are forbidden from leaving the property’s boundaries during the mandated period of silence. In a special concession granted to hotel guests by local religious leaders, service continues as usual for guests, if perhaps in a more subdued way with candlelit meals served after sunset when all external lighting is dimmed in deference and respect to the Island’s Faithful.

Special AYODYA – Silence Day Packages provide two nights accommodation, daily breakfasts and complimentary luncheon and dinner buffets on “Nyepi” day for Rp. 3 million for a Deluxe Room and Rp. 3.6 million for a Grande Room, plus 21% tax and service.

Before the silence, enjoy the revelry on Nyepi Eve that traditionally precedes the coming silence. The AYODYA will organize its own Ogoh Ogoh procession of papier mâché demons starting at 6:30 pm from the Lobby to the beachside where they will be set ablaze to banish all that is bad from the past year. Starting from 7:00 pm, a Legong Dance performance and a buffet dinner follows at the Resort’s Balinese Theatre priced at Rp. 450,000 net per person, with a 50% discount available to children under 12 years of age.

“Confined to base” for 24-hours starting from sunrise the following morning, guests can enjoy a range of spa services, swim in the pool or sample the buffets, ala carte menus and bar service available from the Waterfall Restaurant, Beach Bar, Lagoona Restaurant, Surfers Corner, Genji Japanese, Octopus or Rama Lounge.

Relax, luxuriate, be pampered, dine or meditate on Bali’s Day of Silence – Nyepi 1 Caka 1939 on Tuesday, March 28, 2017.

The only thing you can’t do is leave! But, surrounded by the Balinese beauty of the world’s best Island, who’d want to leave anyway?

A Fox Set Free
Retired British Journalist Get 7-Month Sentence from Bali Court for Drug Possession

David Fox, a British national born in Zimbabwe and long-time expatriate in Sanur, was handed a relatively light sentence of only seven months jail by a Denpasar court on Thursday, October 9, 2017 after being found guilty of possession of 10 gram of hashish when detained by police in October 2017.

The Jakarta Globe reports that prosecutors had sought a sentence of one-year in prison for Fox who, minus time served, awaiting trial, will be eligible for release on a good behavior warrant in a few week’s time.

Fox, who once worked as a Reuter’s News Correspondent, had worked as an independent consultant and journalist since March 2010. The man told the court that he had become dependent on hashish to help him deal emotionally with decades of witnessing death and human tragedy as a war-zone journalist.

Fox was reportedly pleased with the light sentence given him by the Court and plans to return to the UK after his imminent release from jail in Bali.
 


I Started a Joke . . .
Saudi Arabian Passengers Grounds Lion Air Flight with Bad Joke About Bombs

Lion Air flight JT 105 preparing to take off to Jakarta at 6:20 pm on Wednesday, March 8, 2017, suddenly returned to the apron area when a Saudi Arabian passenger was allegedly heard quipping “this flight will explode after take off.”

The comment, heard by other passengers, was reported to the flight crews, and was reported to the Captain who aborted take off and immediately alerted airport security.

Widely reported to by the national and international press, the Airport was closed for more than an hour as the eleven international and domestic flights were delayed or diverted and the passengers and luggage on the Lion Air flight were unloaded and inspected.

Aljohani Dakheel Allahawdahm, the man who reportedly made the threat, told authorities that he was merely making a joke.

Allahawadahm and a group of four traveling companions were interrogated for hours before being sent under guard to a local hotel. At one point, the man was interviewed directly by Bali’s current Chief of Police, considered an expert in international terrorism.

Later, the Saudi Arabian Ambassador to Indonesia, Osama bin Mohammed Abdullah Al Shuaibi, entered the fray insisting the man charged with the act spoke almost no English and the matter was merely an unfortunate misunderstanding.

It is believed that the Suadi man and his party were allowed to continue their journey after being cautioned by Bali police.

A Smokeless Walk in the Park in Bali
Smoking in a Denpasar, Bali Park Could Cost You Rp. 50 Million.

The Denpasar Municipal Government has declared not only a number of public hospitals and transportation terminals as “off-limits” to smoking, but has now expanded the “no-smoking zone” to also include the Puputan and Lumintang Public Park Areas.

The prohibition against smoking in public places is covered under the No Smoking Ordinance Number 8 of 2013.

Metrobali.com quotes Gede Sudana of the Municipal Enforcement Agency (Satpol PP) who said the enforcement of the law had been delayed somewhat while his team socializes the prohibition to the public.

Satpol PP now patrols the two parks taking action against those found to be smoking.

Those ticketed for smoking in these areas face a maximum punishment inder the law of 3 months jail or a fine of Rp. 50 million.

Metrobali.com says many people continue to smoke openly in the park where the Government has failed to post any “no smoking" signs.


Human Pollution at the Port of Benoa

Muhammad Eko Suryanto (45), a member of the staff of the Benoa Port Authority (Syahbandar) has been arrested by the Bali Police reportedly caught in the act of extorting illegal fees from small boats operating between Sanur Beach and Nusa Lembongan.

Metrobali.com says Suryanto was arrested on Tuesday, March 7, 2017, at 10:30 am on Sanur Beach.

Employed as a supervisor at the Benoa Port, Suryanto was caught receiving Rp. 100,000 from Captain Putu Rauh Suantar the Captain of the local boat “Dreambeath.”

Police say Suryanto has long been involved in extorting illegal payments from boats seeking a sailing permit to operate each day between Sanur and Nusa Lembongan.

Royal Spending
ASITA Estimates Saudi Royal Family Spent Rp. 250 billion During Bali Holiday

The Bali News Network estimates that the 1,500 person delegation accompanying Saudi Arabia King Salman bin Abdul Aziz Al Saud spent more than Rp. 250 billion during their 10-days in Bali.

The estimate of the amount spent was made by the chairman of the Bali chapter of the Association of Indonesian Tour and Travel Agents (ASITA-Bali), Ketut Ardana.

Ardana said his calculation was based on reports received from Badung, Tabanan, Denpasar, Gianyar and Bangli through Friday, March 10, 2017, while the King’s party continued their Bali holiday and still had three days remaining in Bali

ASITA calculated that transactions undertaken at tourist attractions by the King’s family and entourage totaled more than Rp. 195 billion that included hotel bills, vehicle rentals and admission fees. This amount would not include other expenditures, such as shopping, restaurant visits, spa treatments and entertainment venues.

Ardana predicted the Saudi Royal household's total expenditures while in Bali would easily exceed Rp. 250 billion.


Bringing a Reef to Grief
British Own Expedition Ship Causes Severe Damage to Raja Ampat Reef in Eastern Indonesia

The Guardian Environmental Network reports that one of the main reef at the world-renowned Indonesian coral reef at Raja Ampat suffered extreme damage with the Bahamian-flagged British-owned cruise vessel MV Caledonia Sky ran aground on March 4, 2017.

The vessel was under the command of its American Captain, Keith Michel Tylor.

The 90-meter vessel owned by Nobke Caledonia (UK) was operating in a low tide when it hit a reef near Waigeo Island.

The vessel was not holed in the incident that Noble Caledonia termed as “unfortunate” but damage to the sensitive ecosystem of the reef was describe by local environmentalists and marine experts as extensive.

Ricardo Tapilatu of the Research Center for Pacific Marine Resources from the University of Papua, who joined the evaluation team, said the ship ran aground in low tide despite being equipped with a Global Positioning System (GPS) and radar systems. “A tugboat from Sorong city was deployed to help refloat the cruise ship, which is something that shouldn’t have happened because it damaged the reef even worse,” Tapilatu said. “They should’ve waited for high tide” to refloat the vessel.

The Caledonia Sky had 102 passengers and 79 crew on board at the time of the incident during an itinerary sailing from Papua New Guinea to the Philippines.Passengers were disembarked during the refloating process.

An estimated 1,600 square meters of reef at the popular diving site of Crossover Reef was damaged in the grounding. Eight coral genera were lost or reduced in the accident, including acropora, porites, montipora and stylophora - according to Tapilatu.

One local accommodation provider who derives his income from visitors to the reef asked: “How can this happen? Was a 12-year-old at the wheel? Anchor damage from ships like these is bad enough, but actually grounding a ship on a reef, takes it to a whole new level.”

Taplatu indicated that final recommendations may be for the cruise company to compensate their damage to the reef at between US$800 to $1,200 per square meter that could bring total damages to between US$ 1.28-$1.92 million to be paid to the district administration.

Any funds paid by the Cruise line, according to Tapilatu, would be used for the long process of reviving the reef, installing more mooring buoys and improving underwater mapping of the area.


A Shining Example
Saudi Arabian Ambassador Presents Golden Ceremonial Sword to the Indonesian Police

During the combined official and holiday visit to Jakarta and Bali by the Royal Household of Saudi Arabia, the Kingdom presented a souvenir to the Chief of the National Police, General Tito Karnavian, in the form a gold ceremonial sword.

The sword was presented to General Karnavian by the Saudi Arabia Ambassador to Indonesia, Usamah bin Abdullah Asyuaiby.

As reported by Beritabali.com, a police spokesman thanked the Ambassador for the gift that would become the property of the Indonesian Police.

The sword will be displayed in the Indonesian Police Museum after its receipt is formally reported to the Central Government’s Anti-Corruption Agency (KPK).


Baliís Green Zones
Zoning Violations Widespread in Denpasarís Green Zones

The erection of illegal building in no-build green zones in Bali has become more rampant in its disregard for the law.

As reported by Balipost.com, the general impression is that the government is reluctant or powerless to stop the building of illegal structures that are now infringing on areas surrounding main protocol roads in Denpasar. Certain areas of Bali are declared "green zones" and banned from the erection of any permanent structures.

A.A. Putu Wijaya, a resident in the Sanur area of Bali and a former legislator, expressed his dismay at the lack of any enforcement action against illegal buildings standing in green zones. He complained that the government is choosing to close its eyes to these flagrant zoning violations.

Wijaya pointed to long-standing building zone violations on Jalan Hang Tuah in Sanur. Permanent buildings now stand in prohibited Green Zones that if not removed will only encourage similar violations in the future.

Speaking with no small degree of cynicism, Wijaya said: “If we can’t do anything (to stop the violations), then let’s just open all green zones to building anything. It’s a pity that those not brave enough to break the law are missing out.”

Together with other residents of the area, Wijaya is calling for firm enforcement by local enforcement agencies to stop the ongoing violations.


Reclaiming Sanity
National Committee on Human Rights Calls for End of Benoa Bay Reclamation Project

The National Committee of Human Rights (Komnas HAM) has issued a formal statement calling for the rejection of plans to reclaim Benoa Harbor after receiving submissions in the past on the subject from a number of interested parties.

Balipost.com reports that the Komnas HAM recommendation was announced in a press conference convened by the Balinese People’s Forum for the Rejection of the Reclamation of Benoa Harbor (ForBALI) on Sunday, March 5, 2017 held in Kesiman.

ForBALI received a copy of a letter from Komnas HAM recommending that the reclamation project be abandoned. Komnas HAM’s recommendations were sent to the Minister of Forestry and the Environment, the Minister of Fisheries and Maritime Affairs, the National Chief of Police and the Governor of Bali.

According to the coordinator of ForBALI, I Wayan Gendo Suardana, the letter recommending an end to the plan to reclaim Benoa Bay was a response to an appeal sent to Komnas HAM on June 27, 2016.

Subsequent research carried out by Komnas HAM formed the basis of their recommendation for the revocation of plans to reclaim Benoa Bay. Komnas HAM also recommended that the police stop any efforts to criminalize, intimidate, or limit the rights of free expression of those opposed to the reclamation.

Komnas HAM also called for respect to be paid to the culture and traditions of Bali and the opposition by Hindu leaders to the reclamation project. Finally, Komnas HAM called for transparency and public participation in the development process.

Gendo called on the media to publish the Komnas HAM recommendation in order that the public will know that a national agency of the government has recommended  the abandonment of the reclamation of Benoa Bay.

Beritadewata.com reports that when Saudi Arabia King Salman bin Abdulaziz al Saud arrived in Bali on March 4, 2017, numbered among the official delegation welcoming the King was a Catholic Cleric Father Romo Evensius Dewantara, or more commonly known as Romo Venus by his congregation at the Pastorate of the Blessed Mother at Nusa Dua.

When Romo Venus was introduced to the Saudi King, he welcomed King Salman in fluent Arabic.

“Ahlan wasahlan Ya Malik,”
said the Roman Catholic Priest upon being presented to the King.

The Saudi King was reportedly taken slightly aback at being greeted by the Catholic priest in Arabic. A short conversation ensued between the Saudi King and the priest originally from East Flores.

The Saudi King enquired if Romo Venus was a Catholic. During the short and cordial conversation that followed, the Priest explained in Arabic that he was educated in Egypt where he undertook a course in Islamic studies.

Romo Venus now serves at the Puja Mandala Complex in Nusa Dua in a Catholic Church that stood adjacent to a Mosque, a Protestant Church, and a Hindu Temple.


It Pays to Explore the Rest of Indonesia
Indonesia Government Offers Cash Incentives to Wholesalers and Charter Operators Promoting Beyond Bali Products

Kompas.com reports that the Indonesian Ministry of Tourism is paying wholesalers and airlines that send tourists to “new destinations” beyond Bali an incentive of US$15 per foreign tourist in 2017.

The incentive is intended to boost efforts to achieve 15 million foreign tourists in 2017.

Vinsensius, the Assistant Deputy for the Development of the Asia-Pacific Market at the Ministry of Tourism, said: “We have a challenging target from 2017 until 2019. This year we must achieve 15 million foreign tourists from last year’s total of 12 million. Adding 3 million tourists (in a single year) is a heavy task, unequaled as a challenge in the history of Indonesian tourism.

To meet the challenge a number of strategies have been put in place by the tourism ministry, including the plan to pay an incentive if US$15 per foreign tourist to wholesalers or airlines. Vinsensius explained that the incentive is only available to airlines and wholesalers undertaking charters to areas outside of Bali and Jakarta.

At the same time that incentives are being offered, Indonesia is undertaking an unprecedented program of improvements in airports across the country. Moreover, Angkasa Pura – the State-owned company that operates many of Indonesia’s airports – is extending free landing and apron fees for one year for airports outside of Jakarta and Bali.

Vinsensius added: “This is what you call ‘hard selling.’ Actually, competing countries such as Malaysia and Thailand have undertaken similar steps.”

The Ministry points to the expected expenditure of US$1,200 by every tourist visiting Indonesia against the relatively insignificant incentive of US$15 per passenger involved in the scheme.
