Budi Karya: Kereta Listrik Dipastikan Akan Ada di Ibukota Baru

first_imgMenteri Perhubungan Budi Karya Sumadi (KabarPenumpang.com) Ketika berbicara pemindahan ibukota dari Jakarta ke Kalimantan, banyak sekali yang dibahas baik infrastruktur hingga transportasi yang akan hadir di sana. Hal ini membuat pemerintah berpikir transportasi apa yang cocok untuk melengkapi ibukota baru tersebut. Menteri Perhubungan Budi Karya Sumadi mengatakan, pemerintah untuk membuat transportasi baru ini melakukan perencanaan dengan baik.Baca juga: Tengah Dikaji Pemerintah, Apakah O-Bahn Bakal Mengular di Indonesia?“Di mana saat berbicara satu fungsi kota tertentu, maka transportasi menjadi begitu penting. Kita selalu mengenal lokasi menjadi hal penting karena aksesibilitas adalah satu kunci keberhasilan semuanya,” ujar Budi Karya yang ditemui saat berbicara dalam forum transportasi massal ibukota baru, Kamis (10/10/2019). Dia mengatakan, lokasi untuk ibukota baru ini memiliki potensi luar biasa dan menjadi modal kota yang sangat menarik. Apalagi dengan upaya mencari bentuk kota berkelanjutan melalui angkutan massal tidaklah mudah.“Mandat pak Presiden sangat luar biasa yakni ibukota baru menjadi kota masa depan sebagai contoh dan pusat tourism. Selain jadi kota yang cantik dan kultur pola hidup baru dengan jalan kaki serta angkutan massal yang menggunakan teknologi berkelanjutan,” jelasnya.Terkait dana yang akan digelontorkan dalam pembangunan transportasi di ibukota baru ini, Budi Karya belum bisa menjelaskan secara rinci. Hal ini dikarenakan titik pasti ibukota belum ditetapkan secara sah.Namun dia mengatakan, untuk dana yang akan dikeluarkan lebih banyak nantinya dalam pembangunan kereta api dengan panjang sekitar 30-40 km. Sedangkan MRT dan moda transportasi lainnya menjadi pikiran serta rancangan masa depan.“Bayangannya seperti ini, dari bandara di Balikpapan, yang diperlukan adalah jalan tol dan kereta api. Ada pilihan lain seperti angkutan kapal dengan teknologi tenaga matahari. TOD perkotaan bisa disambungkan dengan kereta listrik atau bisa yang kita adopsi dari satu teknologi lebih maju yang tidak berbasis rel tetapi jalan kombinasi,” tambah Budi Karya.Dia mengatakan, dalam satu tahun kedepan, pihak pemerintah dengan Pekerjaan Umum membuat perencanaan ibukota baru. Tahun kedua, setelahnya ada proses land clearing, tahun ketiga untuk transportasi, tahun keempat prasarana sudah ada.“Tahun kelima akan uji coba transportasi massal. Kota inti nantinya di tahun kelima sudah bisa diterapkan. Kalau menyeluruh ke semuanya 10-15 tahun,” kata dia.Baca juga: Google Maps Hadirkan Fitur Info ‘Kepadatan Penumpang’ di Moda Transportasi UmumDia mengatakan, untuk transportasi lain akan dilihat utilitas terjadi atau tidak untuk angkutan amphibi atau bus tanah air.

Croatia will be ready for England

first_imgCroatia will have enough energy to face England in the World Cup semi-final despite back-to-back games going to extra time and penalties, boss Zlatko Dalic says. Having edged past Denmark on penalties in the last 16, Croatia overcame hosts Russia in another dramatic shootout. They return to action on Wednesday when they meet England (19:00 BST) in Moscow for a place in the final on 15 July. “Of course there is some power left for the English,” said Dalic. While England have played 480 minutes and been involved in one penalty shootout in Russia, Croatia have played 30 minutes more and their past two games have gone to penalties. Goalkeeper Danijel Subasic needed lengthy treatment towards the end of normal time against Russia for a suspected hamstring problem but was able to continue. “This was not a beautiful game, it was a fight, a battle for the semi-final,” added Dalic, who broke down in tears after Croatia confirmed a first World Cup semi-final appearance since 1998. “We were lucky.” Looking ahead to the England match, the coach said: “We do not want to stop, we will try to play our best game. “We have two matches to play and we are very motivated. “We’re giving our all. It will be a battle again but I trust us, I have belief in us.”last_img read more

I’d have to agree with the previous poster and say it’s a good thing that the teams playing Christmas day will be wearing “special” uniforms. Christmas is one of the NBA’s showcase days, much like Thanksgiving with the NFL, New Year’s Day with the NHL (mainly the WInter Classic) and Memorial Day and Independence Day with MLB. Many times in those leagues the teams playing are wearing something special on those days, and the NBA is attempting to do the same thing here on Christmas.However, I don’t favor these uniforms particularly. Most of what’s been said about these uniforms thus far has been a bit hyperbolic though. They’re not necessarily atrocious or disasterous, but just plain looking. I say “meh” to them. My eyes and stomach are OK after seeing these, but I’m not going to knock down the doors of my sporting goods store to buy these either.These uniforms are just different, not special like what adidas and the NBA were probably aiming for. In short, adidas needs to go back to the lab and make something better than these things.

LISTEN: Arsenal legend SHOCKED by decision to send Jack Wilshere to Bournemouth

first_imgPaul Merson has told talkSPORT he is amazed Arsenal have allowed Jack Wilshere to join Bournemouth for the whole season.The Gunners legend believes the injury-hit midfielder could have made a major impact for the club this term and claims Arsene Wenger may come to regret sanctioning the long-term loan deal.“I was shocked they let him go,” said Merson, speaking on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast.“This is a long, long season. They are in four competitions and, for me, they haven’t got a Jack Wilshere in their team.“If I am 1-0 down with ten minutes to go, who do I want to come on: Theo Walcott, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain or Jack Wilshere?“Jack Wilshere is the one that can make things happen, especially in a tight game where teams are sitting 11 behind the ball.”Merson believes Wilshere will be ‘hurt’ by the decision to send him out on loan for a year.And he fears the 24-year-old, who has been at Arsenal since the age of nine, could decide his long-term future lies away from the Emirates.“He will be hurting,” said. “I know he said he wants to go out on loan but when I was around you went for a month or two months or three months. A year is a long time.“Who is to say he can’t rip it up in the next month and win Player of the Month in the Premier League and then Arsenal are sitting there having just lost two games and all of a sudden, it is like why are you letting Jack go for a year?“My worry is will he lose the love of Arsenal. He could easily look at this and think, why am I the one going out on loan?”last_img read more

Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez suffers ‘low-grade muscle injury’ on international duty

first_imgAlexis Sanchez looks set to miss Chile’s World Cup qualifier against Colombia through injury.Chile have announced that the in-form Arsenal forward, who has scored eight goals in 15 matches for the Gunners this season, has suffered a “low-grade muscle injury”.Reports in Chile suggest the 27-year-old picked up the injury in training and it looks likely that he will play no part in Thursday’s match against Colombia in Barranquilla.It also remains to be seen if Sanchez will be able to feature in next Tuesday’s home match with Uruguay, with the Chile Football Association confirming his recovery is being monitored.A statement on www.anfp.cl read: “The medical staff of the Chile national team inform that Alexis Sanchez has a low-grade muscle injury.“The player will remain in Santiago, under treatment and being evaluated for Chile’s match against Uruguay.”Chile are fifth in their World Cup qualifying section with 16 points from 10 games, five points behind leaders Brazil.Arsenal’s next fixture is the Premier League trip to Old Trafford to face Manchester United on November 19.

Real World Database Encryption Performance with Intel AES-NI Pt 1

first_imgSoftware Only Encryption = 00:02:16.41 Query on Clear Text = 00:00:28.80 Accelerated with AES-NI = 00:00:45.30 This means that with AES-NI the query completed 3x faster than that using software only encryption and 1.55x slower compared to using no encryption at all. Clearly if you are using Oracle TDE for encryption then you are going to see significant performance gains from using AES-NI for acceleration.If you are curious why Oracle decided not to cache the data at all and instead chose to read from disk and decrypt exactly the same query each time, we’ll look into that in Part II of this post. Elapsed: 00:00:28.74And the same execution plan value for physical reads.Statistics———————————————————-…1038269 physical reads…The first time, Oracle decided not to cache the LINEITEM table in the buffer cache SGA. When I ran the query a second time, it fetched the data from disk again and continued to do this for every time the query was run with consistent timing each time.What about the same query on encrypted data? Oracle TDE is controlled by hidden parameters, so we need a query to see the parameters:SQL> li1* select a .ksppinm “Parameter”, b.ksppstvl “Session Value”, c.ksppstvl “Instance Value” from x$ksppi a, x$ksppcv b, x$ksppsv c where a.indx = b.indx AND a.indx = c.indx AND ksppinm like ‘%encryption%’SQL> /Parameter——————————————————————————–Session Value——————————————————————————–Instance Value——————————————————————————–_use_platform_encryption_libTRUETRUE_use_hybrid_encryption_modeTRUETRUE_db_disable_temp_encryptionFALSEFALSETo use AES-NI  the parameter _use_platform_encryption_lib needs to be set to TRUE. To use AES-NI for both encryption and decryption _use_hybrid_encryption_mode needs to be set to FALSE. We can test the impact of hardware encryption acceleration performance by turning these parameters on and off, for example:SQL> alter system set “_use_platform_encryption_lib”=FALSE scope=both;System altered.I restarted the database and opened the wallet before running queries against the encrypted data without AES-NI for hardware encryption acceleration. In this case Oracle is using software only to do the decryption and is not using the AES-NI at all.SQL> alter system set wallet open identified by “oraclepassword”;System altered. The query again returned 4 rows and the timing value is 136 seconds, including the time to do the software only decryption.Elapsed: 00:02:16.41Our Execution plan shows “TABLE ACCESS FULL” on “LINEITEM” and again our statistics show that the full table scan was based on physical reads. Each time that the same statement was re-executed, the data was read from disk. This means that each time the data was decrypted with software acceleration it took approximately 4.7x longer than the same query on clear text.Next, I restarted the database but this time enabled hardware accelerated encryption to use AES-NI.SQL> alter system set “_use_platform_encryption_lib”=TRUE scope=both;System altered.I re-ran the same query with the following timing value:Elapsed: 00:00:45.30As expected, our Execution plan again shows “TABLE ACESS FULL” on “LINEITEM” with the full table scan based on physical reads. The same query was run each each time (the data was read from disk and decrypted). In this case the difference was making use of AES-NI for acceleration.Timing the same query consistently gave us the following results: One interesting aspect of working with real world implementations of database technology is that they often raise interesting questions about how that technology is used. One such recent question concerned the real performance benefits of the Intel Advanced Encryption Standard New Instructions (Intel AES-NI) set on Intel Xeon processors for improving Oracle database encryption performance with Oracle Transparent Data Encryption (TDE).Oracle TDE provides security where data is automatically encrypted and decrypted when written to and read from the physical media. If we look in the Oracle TDE FAQ it clarifies what happens to the data once it has already been read and is held in memory. With TDE, column encryption data always remains encrypted in the Oracle SGA so the benefits of encryption acceleration are clear. However, with TDE tablespace encryption, data is already decrypted in the SGA so once it is cached it is in clear text. This makes the question more precise:If I am using TDE tablespace encryption for query-based data and have a large SGA to cache most of the data in decrypted form, what gains will AES-NI really bring me?The best way to answer this question is to put it to the test, so I tested a system equipped with Intel Xeon processor E5-2680 running Red Hat Enterprise Linux* Server release 5.6. I know these processors have AES-NI, but in the flags section of “/proc/cpuinfo” the flag “aes” confirms it for me. I installed Oracle 11.2.0.2 and applied the patch 10080579 to enable TDE to use AES-NI by default.To set up TDE I then created an encryption wallet directory in my admin directory as follows:/u01/app/oracle/admin/SANDEPDB1/walletI ensured that the permissions were set correctly to keep the directory secure.  I then created a sqlnet.ora file in my network admin directory,/u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/dbhome_1/network/adminand added the following line to this file (keeping the entry all on the same line):ENCRYPTION_WALLET_LOCATION=(SOURCE=(METHOD=FILE)(METHOD_DATA=(DIRECTORY=/u01/app/oracle/admin/SANDEPDB1/wallet/)))Then I created (you can see the file created in your wallet directory) and opened the wallet as follows:[[email protected] ~]$ sqlplus / as sysdba…SQL> alter system set encryption key authenticated by “oraclepassword”;System altered.SQL>WALLET createdNext, I created an unencrypted tablespace as normal and an encrypted tablespace,SQL> create bigfile tablespace TPCH_ENCRYPT datafile ‘+DATA’ size 50g encryption using ‘AES256’ default storage(encrypt);Tablespace created.and checked the tablespace was indeed encrypted.SQL> select tablespace_name, encrypted from dba_tablespaces;TABLESPACE_NAME ENC—————————— —SYSTEM NOSYSAUX NOUNDOTBS1 NOTEMP NOUSERS NOTPCH_CLEAR NOTPCH_ENCRYPT YES7 rows selected.I then used Hammerora to create identical Scale Factor 10, 10GB schemas based on the TPC-H specification in both clear-text and encrypted forms, ensuring that with my 40GB buffer cache in the Oracle SGA there would be plenty of memory to cache the data.  I also used Hammerora to run and capture an example query to use against this data and keep the predicates the same so the query run would be identical each time. I used autotrace and timing to test my query performance. First I took a look at the clear text schema with the following query (which is TPC-H Query 1).SQL> connect tpch/tpchConnected.SQL> set autotrace on;SQL> set timing on;SQL> select l_returnflag, l_linestatus, sum(l_quantity) as sum_qty, sum(l_extendedprice) as sum_base_price, sum(l_extendedprice * (1 – l_discount)) as sum_disc_price, sum(l_extendedprice * (1 – l_discount) * (1 + l_tax)) as sum_charge, avg(l_quantity) as avg_qty, avg(l_extendedprice) as avg_price, avg(l_discount) as avg_disc, count(*) as count_order from lineitem where l_shipdate <= date '1998-12-01' - interval '119' day (3) group by l_returnflag, l_linestatus order by l_returnflag, l_linestatus;The query returned 4 rows and the timing value showed it took almost 29 seconds.Elapsed: 00:00:28.80Our Execution plan shows "TABLE ACCESS FULL" on "LINEITEM" which is a full table scan on our biggest table. Our statistics show that these were physical reads which means that the data was not cached in memory but instead read from disk.Statistics----------------------------------------------------------...1038269 physical reads...I then ran the same query again with the result showing the following timing.last_img read more
