2) Uncen gives training on  taxonomy to 25 researchers

The Jayapura-based Cendrawasih University (Uncen)’s Postgraduate Biology School, under cooperation with copper and gold mining firm PT Freeport Indonesia, the Museum of Natural History Berlin and the Zoological State Collection Munich, held taxonomy training attended by 25 postgraduate students and scientists from various government institutions.
“A lot of natural diversity in Papua has yet to be discovered. It is hoped that by giving researchers training on taxonomy, more researchers would work on research on biodiversity that could serve the society largely,” said the university’s head of taxonomy training organizing committee, Suriani Br.Surbakti, on Monday.
The training, which is set to take place from Nov.18 to Nov.30, allows participants to learn more on taxonomy research methods and theories. Field practice in taxonomy work is provided as well.
The training involves four trainers from Austria: Christian Schulze (Department of Tropical Ecology and Animal Biodiversity, University of Vienna – Austria), Anita Freudmann (Department of Tropical Ecology and Animal Biodiversity, University of Vienna – Austria), Thomas von Rintelen (Museum für Naturkunde Leibniz-Institut für Evolutions- und Biodiversitätsforschung, Humboldt University, Berlin-Germany), and Christoph Häuser (Museum für Naturkunde Leibniz-Institut für Evolutions- und Biodiversitätsforschung, Humboldt University, Berlin-Germany).
It is said that PT Freeport’s involvement in the training is in accordance with the company’s commitments to be deeply involved in nature and the environment conservation activities in Papua
PT FI has been involved in a number of natural conservation activities such as the release of tens of thousands of pig-nosed turtle (Carettochelys insculpta), which is also known as the pitted-shelled turtle or Fly River turtle, to their natural habitat in southern Papua during the period of 2006-2010.
PT FI vice president for environment, Andi Mukhsia, said the training would hopefully produce skilled researchers that managed to carry out intensive taxonomy works in Papua. (ebf)
3) SBY urged to expel diplomats  over wiretapping
Thu, January 01 1970, 7:00 AM
An international law expert from the University of Indonesia's (UI) School of Law, Hikmahanto Juwana, said on Monday that President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono should take a firm stance against wiretapping by foreign intelligence agencies by instructing his foreign minister to expel US and Australian diplomats from Indonesia.
“The President must immediately instruct the foreign affairs minister to order two or three US and Australian diplomats to leave Indonesia,” he said, as quoted by Antara news agency.
According to the former dean of the UI law school, President Yudhoyono should express the outrage of the Indonesian people over surveillance operations conducted by the US and Australia. At the same time, Hikmahanto said the President should also get angry about how fugitive former National Security Agency (NSA) contractor Edward Snowden has embarrassed Indonesia.
“Indonesia is now perceived as a country that is very prone to wiretapping operations and that is easy to be ashamed of. This is because no serious action is taken by the government,” said Hikmahanto.
In his latest disclosure of confidential documents, Snowden revealed that the Australian intelligence agency had bugged phone calls of several high-ranking Indonesian officials. He even disclosed officials’ names and the brands of cell phones they used.
Hikmahanto said Indonesia had become Snowden’s playground thanks to Yudhoyono’s irresoluteness in responding to the wiretapping scandal.
He said the government’s decision to recall Indonesian Ambassador to Australia Nadjib Riphat Kesoema to respond to reports suggesting that Australia had wiretapped phone calls of both the president and his wife was a good measure but not yet enough.
“It’s not yet firm enough because the decision was taken only after the incident occurred,” Hikmahanto said. (ebf)
