first_imgTopics : The Jakarta administration is in a quandary over Indonesia’s first Formula E electric car race after the State Secretariat turned down a proposal to use the National Monument (Monas) complex in Central Jakarta as the circuit.An official from the State Secretariat said the rejection was based on various reasons, including that Monas is a heritage site and any major modifications might pose a risk to its well-being.The conclusion was made in a meeting of the Medan Merdeka Area steering committee, helmed by State Secretary Pratikno, as Monas was under the supervision of the committee according to Presidential Decree No. 25/1995.To keep the plan on track, the city administration is assessing the possibility of using Jl. Sudirman and Jl. MH Thamrin, the two main roads nearby Monas, as the new location of the race.Jakarta Bina Marga Agency head Hari Nugroho said the roads… Linkedin Formula-E Jakarta-2020-Formula-E anies-baswedan State-Secretariat Jakarta-administration FIA-Formula-E Monas Sudirman-Thamrin Google LOG INDon’t have an account?

They have a wide variety of offerings that may include: nutritious meal programs; educational opportunities; transportation services; financial and insurance counseling; exercise programs; and social and recreational activities.There are over 500 senior community centers across the 67 counties in Pennsylvania, and these grants are designed to help centers increase participation and provide innovative programs that attract a new generation of older Pennsylvanians.“It is critically important for senior community centers to be accessible and available to older Pennsylvanians so they can live and age well,” Osborne said. “These grants ensure that our seniors will continue to benefit from programs and services that promote active community engagement and enjoyment of life.”“We thank Governor Wolf and the Pennsylvania Department of Aging for this generous grant. The funds assist senior centers to help them to stay active, in touch, and healthy in many ways,” said PHA President and CEO Kelvin A. Jeremiah. “A thoughtful investment in seniors such as this pays long term dividends to the community.”“The senior center grant provides a valuable resource to help centers maintain safe and accessible buildings,” said Holly Lange President and CEO of the Philadelphia Corporation for Aging. “It also provides opportunities for innovative and creative programming to attract and serve multiple generations of older adults. PCA appreciates Governor Wolf announcing that these grants will be continued in the proposed budget.For more information on senior community centers, visit aging.pa.govBelow is the list of the Senior Community Center awardees and grant amounts: Chestnut Hills Social CenterIndiana$11,625last_img read more
