PREMIUMMemories of Rindu Alam: Iconic Puncak restaurant closes after four decades

first_imgOnce known as a legendary culinary landmark providing a vista of the heavenly greenery of Puncak, Bogor, West Java, the Rindu Alam restaurant is now an empty building. It was officially closed down by the local authority late last month.The famous restaurant had been around for 41 years and was a significant tourist attraction as it was perched on a cliff overlooking the Mt. Mas tea plantation. The Bogor administration shuttered the restaurant as the land-use contract had expired.The restaurant was an icon of Puncak, a popular weekend destination for Greater Jakarta residents.Proboyanti, a resident of Karadenan village in Bogor regency, said the charm of Rindu Alam never ceased to amaze her. She recalled having lunch at the restaurant fondly.”The view it offered was magnificent. No wonder the restaurant was quite a hit back then,” she told The Jakarta Post recen… Topics : Facebook Forgot Password ?

China approves new mainland access route for overseas investors

first_imgAsset managers welcomed the Chinese government’s decision to go ahead with the scheme, saying it marks another important step in the country’s capital markets’ opening to global investors.“Within three months, the Shenzhen Connect will offer retail and institutional investors full access to one of the most attractive pools of investment opportunities in the world,” said Francois Perrin, portfolio manager, and Karine Hirn, partner at East Capital, an asset manager, in a joint statement.“Welcome to the world of the Chinese private companies, welcome to the 21st century, made in China,” they said.As part of its latest review, index provider MSCI recently decided against including mainland Chinese shares (A-shares) in its benchmark emerging market index, and the East Capital specialists suggested MSCI will look favourably on the Chinese government’s decision on the additional stock exchange link when the index provider next considers its stance on A-shares’ inclusion.The Shenzhen-Hong Kong Stock Connect is based on the Shanghai-Hong Kong Stock Connect, which was piloted in 2014 and has been in operation since then.The Shenzhen Stock Exchange (SZSE) was established in 1990, a year after the Shanghai Stock Exchange, and is the largest and most active domestic equity market in China, according to East Capital.Helen Wong, chief executive, Greater China, HSBC, noted that the Shenzhen-Hong Kong Stock Connect should provide investors around the world with access to “China’s new generation of private sector companies listed in Shenzhen, including an array of innovative internet and technology players based in the Pearl River Delta.”East Capital’s Perrin and Hirn expect overseas institutional investors to focus more on the Shenzhen stock  exchange than Shanghai’s.Aidan Yao, senior emerging Asia economist at AXA Investment Managers, said that the state council’s approval of the trading link was anticipated, with onshore/offshore equities having rallied in recent days.In addition to via the Chinese government’s stock exchange connection programme, now boosted with the pending launch of the SZ-HK, overseas investors can invest in mainland China via quota programmes, such as the Renminbi Qualified Foreign Institutional Investor (RQFII) scheme.AXA IM’s Yao said that the stock connect programme differentiates itself from the quota programmes by “the clean design of the system that minimises official interference and maximises investor inclusion”.He said the only restriction imposed by the Stock Connect programme is on Chinese mainland retail investors wanting to trade on the Hong Kong stock exchange (so-called southbound trades), and that it is therefore much more inclusive than the quota programmes, which are available only to selective institutional investors.APG, the €424bn Dutch asset manager, cited the size of China’s markets and the ongoing efforts to open them when speaking to IPE about a co-operation arrangement it recently agreed with €131bn Chinese asset management company E Fund Management. China’s government has approved Shenzhen-Hong Kong Stock Connect (SZ-HK Connect), another trading initiative providing foreign investors with access to mainland Chinese companies’ equity.The go-ahead was announced by Premier Li Keqiang at a Chinese state council executive meeting today, 16 August.“The preparation for the launch of Shenzhen-Hong Kong Stock Connect has been basically completed, and the State Council has approved its implementation plan,” he said.The exact launch date is expected to be announced soon.last_img read more

Study: Marriage education can be helpful

first_imgUPI.com 13 March 2012A study of more than a dozen different marriage education classes showed the programs help couples improve communication, U.S. researchers said. Dennis Stoica, president of Healthy Relationships California, said the survey looked at 17,245 Californians who took one of several programs available for couples. The classes range in length from 8 hours to 24 hours. Stoica found a statewide average increase of more than 13 percent in relationship satisfaction was reported immediately after couples took a marriage education course. The improvement increased to 16 percent after 30 days, and was measured at 14 percent when measured six months later. Participants reported a 23 percent improvement in their communication, increasing to 27 percent after 30 days and remaining at that level six months later, Stoica said.These results are considered significant because:— They include couples with severe marital problems who are relatively “resistant” to change, as well as happy couples who have relatively little room for improvement.— The results reflect a widely diverse group of participants, from all ages and socioeconomic levels, and with more than 50 percent taking the class in a language other than English.— The study measures the impact of more than a dozen different marriage education curricula. http://www.upi.com/Health_News/2012/03/13/Study-Marriage-education-can-be-helpful/UPI-66561331616247/#ixzz1pavq3yJ3last_img read more
