first_imgPRO-10 chief Police Brigadier General Rolando Anduyan said he received orders from Philippine National Police (PNP) chief General Camilo Pancratius Cascolan to investigate Parojinog’s death and to determine if he had prior illness. “Actually iniimbestigahan pa natin ‘yan. Alam niyo naman ‘yung panahon ngayon, medyo ano tayo, iba ang panahon ngayon… noong kaninang umaga, ginigising siya noong kaniyang ano, bantay ng selda, eh noong hindi siya magising, hindi siya responsive, tumawag na tayo ng medical teams para magresponde sa kaniya,” Anduyan said. Anduyan said a jail guard was trying to wake Parojinog up but he was unresponsive. Authorities immediately called a medical team to attend to Parojinog, who arrived in Ozamis City detention from PNP Custodial Center in Camp Crame last Thursday. “Hanggang ngayon iniimbestigahan natin. Baka mamaya anong sakit ‘yung mayroon siya hindi natin alam kasi nanggaling siya diyan sa Manila,” Anduyan said in an interview with DZBB. MANILA – The Philippine National Police (PNP) has tasked Police Regional Office 10 (PRO-10) to investigate the sudden death of former Ozamiz City councilor Ricardo “Ardot” Parojinog inside the detention cell of Ozamiz City Police Station on Friday. Former Ozamiz City councilor Ricardo “Ardot” Parojinog was found dead inside his detention cell at the Ozamiz City Police Station on Friday morning. GMA NEWS “Kasama sa imbestigasyon natin ‘yan. ‘Yun din ang tinatanong ko sa mga tao natin, inaalagaan din natin ‘yan kasi medyo kilalang tao ‘yan. Hindi natin alam kung nalulungkot siya siyempre sa kaso na inabot niya, medyo matamlay noong dumating…” he added. Cascolan has also ordered Anduyan to place the Ozamiz City police chief and all the night shift police personnel of the station under restrictive custody pending a probe on the incident. Parojinog, who is facing  murder, illegal possession of firearms and illegal possession of explosives charges, was deported to the Philippines in July 2018, two months after his arrest in Taiwan where he fled following the police raid on the clan’s compound, which killed his brother, former mayor Reynaldo Parojinog Sr./PNlast_img read more

first_img“Saya harus mengakui pada awalnya saya agak sedikit malu saat melihat wajah saya terpampang dimana-mana, tapi perasaan yang pertama saya rasakan adalah bangga bisa mewakili Marie Curie di kota saya. Ini bisa meingkatkan kesadaran akan karya yang menakjubkan yang kami lakukan,” ujar Rob.Rob ( menambahkan, awalnya tidak benar-benar memikirkan penyakit parah seperti kanker sebelum menjadi perawat di Marie Curie. Tetapi semuanya berubah saat ayah Rob menderita penyakit parah dan akhirnya meninggal.“Penyakitnya mengerikan tapi bagian yang sekarat, tidak begitu, dan itu berkat perawatan dan dukungan yang kami terima dari Marie Curie. Setelah itu saya memutuskan bahwa saya ingin membuat perbedaan dan membantu orang lain dalam posisi yang sama. Saya pikir ada yang namanya kematian. Tentu saja, itu selalu patah hati tapi bisa bermartabat. Bagi sebagian besar orang, keinginan mereka adalah berada di rumah pada minggu-minggu atau hari-hari terakhir, bebas dari rasa sakit dan dengan orang yang mereka cintai,” ujar Rob.Namun Rob mengatakan, dirinya tak selalu bisa membuat keluarga penderita untuk nyaman dan selalu memberikan dukungannya. Apalagi menurut Rob, keluarga yang menjaga juga membutuhkan istirahat.“Perawat Marie Curie membuat hal itu mungkin bagi ayah dan keluarga saya, sekarang saya mengikuti jejak mereka, membantu orang lain. Kampanye ini membutuhkan dukungan masyarakat sehingga kita dapat memiliki dana untuk memberikan perawatan kepada keluarga di Plymouth dan sekitarnya. Tidak ada yang sendirian saat gelap, jadi saya berharap banyak orang membantu kita membawa sedikit cahaya ke lebih banyak keluarga,” ujar Rob.Baca juga: Bantu Penderita Kanker, AirAsia Jual T-Shirt Bergambar Awak Kabin dan PilotMarie Curie akan berada di stasiun tersebut selama delapan minggu ke depan, memberi informasi kepada para penumpang tentang layanan amal tersebut, mendorong mereka untuk memberikan donasi dan mengenakan pin daffodil ikonik tersebut.

first_imgBangunan stasiun ini merupakan peninggalan masa Hindia Belanda yang diperkirakan pembangunannya bersamaan dengan jalur kereta dari Pasuruan-Probolinggo-Klakah. Stasiun Probolinggo dibangun oleh perusahaan milik pemerintah Hindia Belanda yakni Staatsspoorwegen (SS), dari tahun 1884 hingga tahun 1895.Jalur tersebut merupakan bagian dari proyek jalur kereta api di Jawa untuk line menuju bagian timur (oosterlijnen) sepanjang 74 km. Pengerjaannya dimulai dari Pasuruan menuju Probolinggo dan selesai pada tahun 1884, sepuluh tahun kemudian baru dilanjutkan pengerjaannya dari Probolinggo menuju Klakah. Dulu, di sebelah timur Stasiun Probolinggo terdapat stasiun kecil, yaitu Stasiun Jati, dan diteruskan ke Kraksaan.Jalur ini dikerjakan pada tahun 1897. Kemudian dari Kraksaan bercabang ke Stasiun Kalibuntu dan ke Stasiun Paiton melewati Jabung yang selesai dikerjakan pada tahun 1898. Untuk jalur dari Probolinggo-Jati-Gending-Kraksaan yang diteruskan ke Kalibuntu maupun ke Paiton dikerjakan oleh Probolinggo Stroomtram Maatschappij (PbSM).Tapi jalur tersebut sekarang ini sudah tidak aktif lagi. PbSM sendiri sempat mengoperasikan trem uap di Kabupaten Probolinggo dan menggunakan jalur di Stasiun Probolinggo. Disinilah tempat lokomotif-lokomotif uap milik PbSM dirawat, karena diponya memang terletak satu kompleks dengan Stasiun Jati. Kraksaan–Kalibuntu hanya dijadikan sebagai lintas cabang pendukung Pelabuhan Kalibuntu. Jalur kereta api Probolinggo–Paiton mulanya dari Pelabuhan Tanjung Tembaga Probolinggo lalu sejajar dengan jalur SS di petak Probolinggo–Jati.Pada masa pemeritahan Hindia Belanda, Stasiun Probolinggo menjadi focal point di kota tersebut sebab terletak di akhir jalan sebelah utara dari sumbu kota tersebut. Karena menjadi kota pelabuhan, Stasiun Probolinggo juga berhubungan langsung dengan pelabuhan. Apalagi letak pelabuhannya berada di belakang stasiun dan tidak mengganggu.Baca juga: Kisah Stasiun Pulau Air, Saksi Bisu Kebangkitan Perkeretaapian di Sumatera BaratStasiun kelas 1 ini memiliki enam jalur dan kini hanya tinggal empat yang tersisa di mapa jalur 1 dan 2 merupakan sepur lurus dan lainnya persilangan.

first_imgVolleyball BY PRISCILLA HARRY Volleyball Fairfax Association will head into its semi-final matches on Saturday with five clubs vying for a final placing at the Taurama Aquatic Indoor Complex on Saturday. In the premier encounter, it will be a clash between defending champions Raukele Dolphins of Hula and Nasobe of Pari village. Both sides are equally-matched and the game is expected to go down to the wire as Nasobe have some aggressive talents on rise to test the Dolphins outfit. If Nasobe setter Sera Hevo can control the offense with some accurate setting, they could go home with a surprise win against the champions. Nasobe’s middle blocker Lego Genaia has enjoyed a great season this year and is expected to continue his top form against their opponents. Hevo will be the main defence that Nasobe will be relying on to defuse the Dolphins’ quick attacks in the middle. Rolley Forova will be Raukele’s main offensive weapon. With the Dolphins on top and Nasobe in second place, the major semi final clash should prove to be an entertaining match-up between the two sides. The high flyer (Forova) is unstoppable with his high spikes and will be counting on his setter. However, his deadly combination with Kenny Dick and Gladstone Ela may cause a major upset to the Nasobe attackers. Fairfax match coordinator Nuga Dick told the Post-Courier that they had done exceptionally well this year. “We were runners-up in both open men’s and women’s divisions at the national championships last year and hope to improve on our performance this year,” he said. Dick said one of the greatest achievements within the association was to see nine of VFA players both men and women representing PNG in the recent XVI Pacific Games in Apia, Samoa last month. Raukele will be favourites going up against Nasobe in the women’s premier competition this weekend. Raukele Dolphins power hitter Theresa Fagau is an inspiration with her attack and should set up traps for the Pari women. The minor semi-final in the women’s premier will be a clash between Manta and Freeway Hoks is expected to be a bumper match. In the minor semi-final, Freeway Hoks men’s premier must not give Snipers any room.last_img read more
