Indonesia president puts ex-general, popular World Bank leader in cabinet | Reuters

JAKARTA Indonesian President Joko Widodo pleased market reform advocates on Wednesday by bringing home the World Bank's managing director to be finance minister and upset human rights activists by naming a controversial ex-general as security chief. The surprise appointments of Sri Mulyani Indrawati to head the finance ministry and Wiranto as coordinating minister for politics, law and security were part of a wider-than-expected cabinet reshuffle in which the trade, energy, transport and industry ministers were also replaced. "I am aware that the challenge keeps changing and it needs quick action from us," Widodo told reporters, adding that unemployment and income inequality must be addressed and the cabinet needed to work "more quickly, more effectively". #Economy #Business #science #Innovation #United Kingdom #article

The print, which measures 1.2 meters (1.3 yards) across, probably belonged to the abelisaurus, a biped dinosaur that once roamed South America, said Argentine paleontologist Sebastian Apesteguia, who is studying the find. The print was found some 64 kilometres (40 miles) outside the city of Sucre in central Bolivia by a tourist guide earlier this month #Economy #India #Middle East #science #article
