List of foods for eye health that are easily available besides carrots

KONTAN.CO.ID – Jakarta. Dietary nutritional intake has a major impact on health, including eye health or vision. There are various foods for eye health that we can easily find everyday without us knowing it.

Vision problems are one of the most crucial problems in the health and function of the human body. As people get older, usually a person’s vision starts to blur. Not only that, eye muscle tension that is difficult to avoid due to close-range activities can also worsen a person’s eye condition.

Even so, the risk of this eye health problem can be significantly reduced by changing a healthier lifestyle. This is mainly related to the intake of nutrients that enter our bodies.

According to The Age-Related Eye Disease Study (AREDS) published in 2001, nutrients such as zinc, copper, vitamin C, vitamin E, and beta-carotene can reduce the risk of age-related decline in eye health. Another study conducted in 2013 also found nutrients such as omega-3 fatty acids, zeaxanthin, and lutein also have benefits for eye health.

Grab more mergers than Gojek

ILLUSTRATION. If the merger between GoJek and Grab materializes, there will be a consolidation in the ride sharing business in Southeast Asia. KONTAN / Fransiskus Simbolon / 28/03/2019

Reporter: Dikky Setiawan | Editor: Dikky Setiawan

KONTAN.CO.ID –JAKARTA. The news of the merger between two startups labeled Decacorn, namely Gojek and Grab, received various comments from economists.

Economist at Indef Bhima Yudhistira said that if the merger occurs, there will be a consolidation in the ride sharing business in Southeast Asia. However, with the condition that Gojek has a stronger brand and market in Indonesia as the largest market in Southeast Asia, the merger is considered to be more needed by Grab.

With the various pressures faced, this action is considered to be more profitable for the Singapore-based company. “In business, Gojek’s market share is stronger and has a more positive brand image in Indonesia.

Meanwhile, Grab is superior abroad. But for Southeast Asia, Indonesia is the key because it is the largest market, so Gojek’s bargaining position is stronger, “said Bhima in Jakarta, Sunday (20/9).

The issue of the Gojek and Grab merger arose in line with the deterioration of SoftBank’s business as the main support for Grab funding. A number of SoftBank investments are known to have suffered heavy losses.

In fact, prior to the Covid-19 pandemic, in fiscal 2019 the Vision Fund, a subsidiary whose 40% investment was in ride sharing, had to write off US $ 17.7 billion due to the failed IPO of WeWork and also Uber Technologies Inc.

Vision Fund’s investments in ride-sharing assets are spread all over the world. For example, US $ 7.7 billion in Uber, US $ 11.8 billion to Didi China, US $ 3 billion to Grab Singapore. The investment value of the Vision Fund in the transportation and logistics business sector is estimated at US $ 33 billion.

“As a result of the pandemic, the online transportation business will still slow down until 2021. The food delivery business has also not been able to cover the losses due to the decline in the transportation business. This is what business players such as Gojek and Grab must find solutions to,” added Bima.

Meanwhile, in the midst of its efforts to withstand large losses, Softbank is known to have divested a number of its investment assets in various countries. Most recently, the Japanese investment company sold its stake in ARM, a British chip company for USD 40 billion.

Change in business strategy

SoftBank is also in the process of selling shares in German telecommunications company T-Mobile for US $ 21 billion. Meanwhile, as the holder of 60% stake in Grab, Softbank also has to face Uber’s potential to pay out US $ 2 billion if Grab finally fails to IPO in 2023.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Gojek seemed to be quicker to change its business strategy. This is what makes Gojek look better prepared to face the decline in the transportation business due to the PSBB policy. Indonesians are increasingly getting to know Gojek with services that are a solution during a pandemic, such as GoFood, Gosend and so on.

“The challenges in the future will be more dynamic and demands from markets with different lifestyles must be fulfilled by Gojek and Grab,” Bhima added.

Previously, Gojek had made a series of strategic changes to deal with the pandemic. One of them decided to refocus on this business. These core businesses include transportation, food delivery and electronic money businesses.

Gojek has also stopped a number of non-core services that have been affected by the pandemic and completely restructured its organization in order to optimize growth.

“Our focus is on core services, stopping services that cannot survive the pandemic and making bold decisions to adapt to changing customer priorities,” said Gojek’s Chief Corporate Affairs, Nila Marita.

Meanwhile, Grab is also making various efficiency efforts to anticipate a decline in business. One of them is laying off 360 employees. Grab CEO and Co Founder Anthony Tan expressed his gratitude to the 360 ​​affected employees for contributing to building Grab.

“To those affected, we owe you a further explanation,” said Tan.

Reporter: KONTAN Team | Editor: Ridwal Prima Gozal

KONTAN.CO.ID – JAKARTA. Bank Indonesia (BI) has just decided to keep the benchmark interest rate at 4%. This decision takes into account the need to maintain the stability of the Rupiah exchange rate, amidst inflation which is expected to remain low. However, PT Bank JTrust Indonesia Tbk.

Under this program, the 20% tax provision for deposit interest remains in effect. If the customer does break deposits, the penalty will be charged to the customer according to the applicable regulations.

For customers who have joined the deposit program special rate with a previous 8% deposit interest and has reached a nominal value of IDR 20 million, customers can still participate in this program. To do this, customers can continue the program by placing funds in the second and third deposits.

The deposit placement does not have to be on the same day but must be in one program period. Therefore, if there are one or two deposits whose placement exceeds the program period date, these deposits cannot be calculated in this program.

Within a month of being introduced to the community, consumer interest in owning a residence in the Podomoro Tenjo city has reached more than 1000 people. The high level of consumer interest is an indicator that property demand remains high amid the dynamic economic situation due to the pandemic.

Assistant Vice President for Podomoro City, Zaldy Wihardja, said that consumer interest in owning property in the city of Podomoro Tenjo is extraordinary. This shows that the community’s need for housing in the middle segment is still high. Moreover, the properties that Agung Podomoro marketed in this new city have an affordable price range.

“The development of the new city of Podomoro Tenjo is an initiative and innovation of APG to provide quality housing, with facilities that support the lifestyle of today’s society, especially aspects of environmental health, infrastructure and access to transportation. We were very surprised by the public response to property in Podomoro Tenjo,” said Zaldy in a Virtual Webinar with the theme “Property Market Booming Amid Pandemic” which was held in Jakarta (18/09).

Zaldy explained that Podomoro Tenjo City is in a strategic location which is supported by infrastructure development in the West Java region. For example the Serpong-Balaraja toll road project. From an economic perspective, this area is a meeting point for 3 regencies / cities that have high and stable economic growth, namely Bogor Regency, Tangerang Regency and South Tangerang Regency. This area is one of the regions with quite high industrial growth.

“Podomoro Tenjo City has been planned for a long time in line with the increase in economic activity and population mobility to the western area of ​​Jakarta. APG deliberately released this project during a pandemic because in this difficult situation someone had to dare to take the initiative so that industry and the economy would move forward. We are grateful that the support from the community and other stakeholders is very good, “he explained.

The people’s interest in buying property in the Podomoro Tenjo City area is also influenced by a number of factors including:

1. Ease of access and support for community mobility to other cities such as Jakarta, Banten and Bogor. Kota Mandiri and the new Satellite are supported by the Grand Transit Oriented Development (TOD) infrastructure which will make it easier for people to access their destination. From the social side, the community will be disciplined in carrying out the culture of using public transportation in an orderly manner, and economically, it will certainly cut time and costs so that community mobility will be more effective and efficient.

2. When the pandemic ends, property prices in the region will tend to increase. This situation is also a consideration for the community to buy property in the City of Podomoro Tenjo. Especially now that many banks provide facilities such as providing long tenors and mortgage promos with low interest rates.

3. The track record and name of a credible and trusted developer are also considered by the community in buying property. Kota Podomoro Tenjo is an offering by the Agung Podomoro Group which has quite strong milestones in the property industry. APG is a market leader whose projects are developing in big cities in Indonesia such as Jakarta, Bogor, Karawang, Bandung, Medan, Balikpapan, Samarinda and Batam.

4. Kota Podomoro Tenjo is part of the Agung Podomoro Group presenting quality property products because they carry Brand Equity. For 51 years, APG has always provided quality products and the best facilities. These two aspects have succeeded in proving that the value of APG’s property projects continues to increase every year and become a profitable investment asset.

Kota Podomoro Tenjo has quality products and premium facilities at an affordable price. This residential sunrise property in west Jakarta is supported by a smart city infrastructure that supports people’s thinking and behavior to be more positive, healthier and more dynamic. With a total land area of ​​650 hectares, people living in this area can use the infrastructure to support a healthy lifestyle by exercising such as jogging and cycling.

The innovation made by APG in the city of Podomoro Tenjo is in line with the company’s commitment to presenting Living in Style, a condition that brings people to move towards more modern thinking and life supported by comprehensive and adequate supporting facilities and infrastructure.
