saco-indonesia.com, Sedikitnya ada 1000 personel kepolisian dikerahkan guna untuk mengamankan jalur Puncak, Bogor, saat malam pergantian tahun 2013-2014 mendatang. Kapolres Bogor AKBP Asep Safrudin juga menjelaskan personel tersebut akan dipusatkan di dua tempat di wilayah Bogor yang kerap dijadikan sebagi pusat keramaian saat malam pergantian tahun.

"Dua tempat itu yakni di Jalan Raya Tegar Beriman, Cibinong, dan Jalan Raya Puncak, Cisarua, Kabupaten Bogor. Tapi mayoritas akan difokuskan di kawasan Puncak," ungkapnya, Rabu (18/12).

Personelnya juga akan ditugaskan untuk dapat mengatur arus lalu lintas dan mengantisipasi terjadinya tindak kejahatan. Sebab, kawasan Puncak juga sering dijadikan sebagai pusat keramaian dari berbagai daerah di Jabodetabek.

Untuk dapat mengurangi beban kendaraan yang telah melintas di Cisarua-Puncak, kepolisian juga akan mengalihkan kendaraan yang akan melintas selama 11 jam.

"Kami juga mengimbau kepada masyarakat yang akan menghabiskan malam tahun baru di Puncak agar melintas sebelum pukul 19.00 WIB, Selasa (31/12), karena sejak pukul 19.00 WIB tersebut, kendaraan yang akan melintas Puncak akan dialihkan melalui Jalan Jonggol tembus di Cipanas, Cianjur," jelasnya.

Sedangkan untuk kendaraan sepeda motor akan dialihkan melalui jalan alternatif Bendungan yang akan tembus di Cikopo, Cisarua. AKBP Asep juga menerangkan, selain rekayasa lalu lintas tersebut, pihaknya bersama Dinas Lalu Lintas Angkutan Jalan (DLLAJ) Kabupaten Bogor dengan membatasi pengangkutan truk bermuatan di atas 20 ton yang akan melintas di jalur Ciawi-Sukabumi.

 Melalui pendapatnya, Ibnu Taimiyah melarang kita pergi ke makam Rasulullah jika kita hanya bertujuan untuk memanjatkan doa

 Melalui pendapatnya, Ibnu Taimiyah melarang kita pergi ke makam Rasulullah jika kita hanya bertujuan untuk memanjatkan doa dan mengharap terkabulnya doa di tempat tersebut atau menganggap bahwa berdoa di makam Rasulullah lebih mudah dikabulkan Allah.

Namun jika kita berziarah ke makam beliau, mengucapkan salam kepada penghuni tempat tersebut dan berdoa di sana, maka kita tidak dianggap berbuat syirik atau bid’ah.

Pendapat Ibnu Taimiyah itu terdapat dalam kitab lqtidha’ush Shirathil Mustaqim halaman 336, “Yang masuk dalam kategori ini adalah pergi ke kuburan untuk berdoa di sana atau untuk kuburan itu sendiri. Karena berdoa di kuburan atau di tempat-tempat lain terbagi menjadi dua macam;

Pertama, berdoa di kuburan karena kebetulan. Misalnya, seseorang berjalan sambil membaca doa, lalu kebetulan ia melewati sebuah kuburan. Di tempat tersebut, orang itu tidak berhenti berdoa. Contoh lain, seseorang memang sengaja berziarah ke kuburan, mengucapkan salam kepada penghuninya, dan berdoa kepada Allah memohon kesehatan dirinya dan si mayit. Berdoa di kuburan seperti dalam contoh- contoh tersebut tidak menjadi masalah.

Kedua, sengaja berdoa di makam Rasulullah disertai anggapan bahwa berdoa di tempat tersebut lebih memungkinkan untuk dikabulkan daripada di tempat-tempat yang lain. Berdoa seperti inilah yang dilarang keras. Hukumnya adalah haram mutiak.”

Pada halaman 339 di kitab tersebut, Ibnu Taimiyah menerangkan bahwa barangsiapa mengkaji kitab-kitab atsar dan tahu betul ihwal para ulama salaf, dia akan sa- dar bahwa mereka tidak pernah meminta pertolongan di kuburan itu. Mereka tidak mengunjungi kuburan semata- mata untuk berdoa di tempat tersebut.

Pendapat Syaikh Muhammad bin Abdul Wahhab

Menurut Syaikh Muhammad bin Abdul Wahhab, sebagian ulama ada yang memperbolehkan bertawasul terhadap orang-orang shaleh, sebagian yang lagi hanya memperbolehkan bertawasul kepada Rasulullah SAW, namun mayoritas ulama melarang hal tersebut dan menganggapnya sebagai perbuatan makruh. Menurutnya, yang benar adalah apa yang disampaikan oleh mayoritas ulama.

Syaikh Muhammad bin Abdul Wahab menyatakan bahwa dirinya tidak mengingkari tawasul, sebab tidak ada pengingkaran terhadap hasil ijtihad. Beliau hanya menyatakan bahwa pengingkaran hanya wajib terhadap orang yang menganggap makhluk lebih agung dari Allah SWT.

“Kami mengingkari orang yang pergi ke kuburan dan merendahkan diri di hadapan makam Syaikh Abdul Qadiral- Jailani atau yang lainnya, lalu di tempat itu mereka memohon agar dijauhkan dari segala macam musibah, melepas duka cita, dan menggantungkan segala harapan. Perbuatan apa itu semua? Mengapa tidak memohon langsung kepada Allah SWT dengan tulus dan mumi?”

Saat ini kebutuhan terhadap jasa kirim barang semakin tinggi. Hal itu telah ditandai dengan meningkatnya volume kirim barang. Potensi pasar yang cukup besar telah membuat perusahaan jasa kirim barang Titipan Kilat (Tiki) menargetkan pertumbuhan omset di kwartal keempat tahun ini meningkat.

Tiki dari manajemen PT Citra Van Titipan Kilat didirikan pada 1 September 1970 ini optimis akan mencapai target, mengingat perusahaannya telah mengalami kenaikan arus kirim barang rata-rata sebesar 10%-15% dibandingkan tahun lalu.

“Kami optimis, target bisa tercapai. Layanan telah mencakup seluruh wilayah di Indonesia. Kepuasan dan kenyamanan pelanggan diutamakan,” kata Rocky Nagoya, Direktur Tiki, dalam perayaan hari jadi ke-43 tahun belum lama ini. Ia telah menargetkan omset pada tahun ini di kwartal keempat meningkat sampai 50 persen dibanding tahun 2012.

Perusahaan jasa kiriman ini telah memiliki sekitar 2 ribu titik pelayanan dan penjualan tersebar di seluruh Indonesia. Tiki melayani pengiriman ke 7500 tujuan di seluruh wilayah nusantara, mencapai tingkat kecamatan dan lebih dari 220 tujuan pengiriman ke luar negeri.

Tiki telah memiliki dukungan 5.000 personel dan 500 kantor perwakilan di seluruh pelosok nusantara. Untuk memudahkan jasa, Tiki juga menggunakan sistem komputerisasi untuk layanan konsumen. Selain itu, Tiki juga bekerja sama dengan armada pesawat maupun moda transportasi lainnya untuk mempercepat pengiriman.

Di era serba cepat sekarang ini, sektor layanan penjualan memberi kemudahan bagi konsumen melakukan pengiriman di titik sales counter tersebar di berbagai tempat, termasuk layanan jasa drive thru selama 24 jam di salah satu gerai di Jalan Pemuda, Rawamangun, Jakarta. Sistem tracking mempermudah mengetahui status kiriman.

Di usianya yang ke-43, menurut Rocky, perusahan bekerja lebih giat lagi, meningkatkan profesionalitas dan dedikasi di semua lini untuk memberi pelayanan yang optimal bagi masyarakat ."Di usia ke-43, kami tetap ingin menjadi tonggak dan memantapkan tujuan mulia,” katanya.

Jasa Sewa Truk Angkutan Barang & Mobil Pick-Up

Salah satu faktor yang menentukan keamanan dan keselamatan barang pindahan atau pengiriman barang adalah penggunaan armada / kendaraan / truk yang digunakan untuk pemindahan atau pengiriman barang tersebut.

Kualitas truk yang digunakan oleh sebuah perusahaan jasa pindahan dan pengiriman barang akan berpengaruh pada proses pelaksaan pindahan atau pengiriman barang yang dilakukan oleh perusahaan mover.

Yang harus lebih diperhatikan adalah apakah perusahaan mover tersebut menggunakan truk/armada/kendaraan milik sendiri ataukah mereka menyewanya dari perusahaan lain. Terlebih lagi apabila perusahaan mover tersebut menyewa truk bebas atau milik perorangan yang bisa kita jumpai dipinggir-pinggir jalan. Keamanan barang yang akan dikirim sudah pasti kurang terjamin karena pengemudi truk tersebut belum tentu mau menjaga atau bertanggung jawab atas keamanan barang yang dibawanya.

Lain halnya dengan Mandiri Moverindo.

Selain sebagai Perusahaan Jasa Pindahan yang Profesional dan Berpengalaman, kami juga telah memiliki armada / kendaraan milik sendiri. Dengan armada yang berkualitas dan memadai, kami menjamin keamanan barang-barang yang akan kami pindahkan atau kami kirim hingga tiba di tujuan dengan selamat.

saco-indonesia.com, Tersangka dalam kasus suap Pemilukada Lebak, Ratu Atut Chosiyah telah kembali menyambangi Gedung KPK untuk dapat menjalani pemeriksaan. Atut datang bersama tersangka dalam suap pengurusan impor daging sapi di Kementerian Pertanian, Maria Elizabeth Liman.

Setibanya di KPK, Atut yang berpakaian serba hitam ini juga tak mau berkomentar apapun. Dia datang dengan mengenakan batik celana, jilbab, dan sepatu kets New Balance MR085 warna hitam. Ini adalah kali kedua Atut telah diperiksa sebagai tersangka.

Atut sendiri nampak segar. Wajah Atut telah menunjukkan kesiapannya untuk dapat diperiksa KPK dan tak nampak tertekan.

Bidikan kamera yang lebih menyorot Atut, dimanfaatkan Maria yang berjalan di belakang Atut untuk dapat menghindari pertanyaan wartawan. Dia langsung melenggang masuk ke ruang penyidikan.

AMSTERDAM, Saco-Indonesia.com — Waktu sudah menunjuk menit ke-90 dan laga Chelsea lawan Benfica masih imbang 1-1 pada final Liga Europa di Amsterdam Arena, Rabu atau Kamis (16/5/2013). Namun, Branislav Ivanovic kemudian mencetak gol dan Chelsea pun menang 2-1 dan juara Liga Europa 2012-13.

Setelah menjalani babak pertama tanpa gol, Chelsea membuka keunggulan lewat gol Fernando Torres pada menit ke-59. Oscar Cardozo sempat membuat Benfica menyamakan kedudukan lewat tendangan penaltinya di menit ke-67. Namun, sundulan Branislav Ivanovic di menit ke-90 membuyarkan harapan Benfica dan memastikan Chelsea juara.

Sejak babak pertama, pertarungan kedua tim sebenarnya seru. Namun, Chelsea yang tampil tanpa John Terry dan Eden Hazard kerap harus menghadapi tekanan Benfica yang tampil lebih menyerang.

Benfica tampil menekan dan beberapa kali mengurung Chelsea di daerah penalti mereka sendiri. Pada menit ke-10, Benfica memiliki kesempatan mengancam gawang Chelsea, tetapi tembakan Eduardo Salvio masih terlalu lemah dan bisa diantisipasi kiper Petr Cech. Mencoba keluar dari tekanan Benfica, Chelsea pun beberapa kali menekan lewat terobosan Juan Mata, tetapi belum ada gol yang tercipta. Kesempatan terbaik Chelsea datang lewat Frank Lampard di menit 37, tetapi bola tembakannya masih bisa ditepis kiper Benfica, Artur.

Benfica menggetarkan gawang Chelsea di menit ke-50 melalui Oscar Cardozo. Namun, gol tersebut dianulir oleh hakim garis yang menganggapnya sudah terlebih dulu dalam posisi offside.

Seperti makin tergugah oleh gol tak sah itu, Chelsea mencoba menekan. Mereka akhirnya memecah kebuntuan melalui gol Fernando Torres di menit ke-59 melalui solo run. Tinggal berhadapan dengan kiper Artur, Torres mengecohnya dan kemudian dengan mudah membobol gawang yang sudah kosong.

Benfica mendapat kesempatan menyamakan kedudukan saat wasit memberi hadiah penalti, karena Azpilicueta melakukan handsball di kotak penalti. Cardozo yang menjadi algojo tak menyia-nyiakan kesempatan ini dan menaklukkan Petr Cech untuk membuat skor imbang 1-1 pada menit 67.

Benfica nyaris menambah keunggulan, kembali lewat Oscar Cardozo, tetapi bola tendangannya masih melambung jauh di atas gawang Petr Cech. Di menit ke-87, giliran Lampard memperoleh peluang emas. Ia melakukan tendangan keras dari jarak jauh. Bola gagal dijangkau Artur, dan hanya membentur tiang gawang.

Menjelang akhir pertandingan, kedua tim meningkatkan permainannya. Saling serang terjadi. Namun, Chelsea akhirnya yang berhasil menambah gol di menit ke-90. Berawal dari tendangan sudut, Branislav Ivanovic menyundul bola menembus gawang Benfica sementara kiper Artur mati langkah.  Chelsea pun menang 2-1 dan juara Liga Europa.

Susunan Pemain
Benfica: 1-Artur; 34-Andre Almeida, 4-Luisao, 24-Ezequiel Garay (33' Jardel Nivaldo Vieira 78'), 25-Melgarejo (19 Ola John, 66'); 35-Enzo Perez, 21-Nemanja Matic, 19-Rodrigo (11 Lima '66); 20-Nicolas Gaitan, 18- Eduardo Salvio; 7-Oscar Cardozo.

Chelsea: 1-Petr Cech, 28- Cesar Azpilicueta, 24-Gary Cahill, 2-Branislav Ivanovic, 3-Ashley Cole; 4-David Luiz, 8-Frank Lampard; 7-Ramires, 10-Juan Mata, 11-Oscar; 9-Fernando Torres.

saco-indonesia.com, Pusat Pelaporan dan Analisis Transaksi Keuangan (PPATK), telah mengaku sudah menyerahkan data informasi soal aliran duit di rekening milik mantan Ketua Umum Partai Demokrat, Anas Urbaningrum kepada Komisi Pemberantasan Korupsi (KPK).

Langkah itu juga sebagai upaya dalam menelusuri transaksi yang mencurigakan suami Atthiyah Laila itu.

"Seluruh permintaan KPK telah mengenai aliran dana (Anas), juga sudah kami berikan," ungkap Ketua PPATK M Yusuf kepada wartawan, di Gedung DPR, Senayan, Jakarta, Senin (27/1/2014).

Yusuf juga menambahkan, setelah laporan tersebut telah dilaporkan, maka KPK juga sebagai penegak hukum akan dapat mengkaji apakah terindikasi pidana atau tidak.

"Setahu saya dari segi transaksi kita tidak terlibat, mungkin dari perkembangan penyidik," tandasnya.

Sebelumnya, Juru bicara KPK, Johan Budi, juga mengaku meminta bantuan kepada PPATK untuk dapat menelusuri transaksi mencurigakan dari tersangka kasus gratifikasi proyek Hambalang itu. KPK pun juga terus berupaya dalam melakukan pelacakan terhadap aset milik mantan Ketua PB HMI tersebut.

Saco-Indonesia.com — Setiap hari, tak terhitung banyaknya foto, video, dan jenis-jenis file lain yang diunggah oleh ratusan juta pengguna ke Facebook.

Saco-Indonesia.com — Setiap hari, tak terhitung banyaknya foto, video, dan jenis-jenis file lain yang diunggah oleh ratusan juta pengguna ke Facebook. Hanya sebagian kecil di antaranya yang sering dilihat oleh pengguna. Namun, semua konten ini tentu perlu disimpan sehingga memakan ruang media storage di server jejaring sosial tersebut.

Bagaimana caranya agar konten-konten usang bisa tetap dipertahankan di media penyimpanan (supaya tidak hilang ketika dicari) tetapi tidak terlalu memakan tempat dan biaya? Facebook merasa perlu mencari alternatif selain hard disk konvensional.

Minggu lalu, pada ajang Open Compute Summit, perusahaan ini memperlihatkan purwarupa sistem cold storage yang menggunakan cakram Blu-ray untuk menyimpan data hingga hitungan Petabyte atau jutaan Gigabyte.

Sebanyak 10.000 cakram Blu-ray bisa disimpan dalam lemari khusus yang tingginya lebih dari 2 meter. Lengan-lengan robot lantas mengambil cakram-cakram yang diatur dalam serangkaian magasin untuk mengambil data dari disc yang sesuai.

Sebuah cakram Blu-ray sendiri didesain utnuk menampung data mulai dari 25 GB untuk setiap keping single-layer hingga 128 GB pada keping varian 4-layer.

Dikutip dari The Verge, wakil presiden bidang teknis Facebook Jay Parikh mengatakan bahwa sistem berbasis Blu-ray ini bisa menghemat penggunaan energi hingga 80 persen dan ongkos hingga 50 persen dibandingkan metode cold storage konvensional yang mengandalkan hard disk.

Blu-ray bukan medium ideal untuk penyimpanan utama karena kecepatan transfer data yang relatif lamban, tetapi cakram ini cocok digunakan untuk menyimpan data yang jarang diakses, seperti backup file foto dan video pengguna Facebook.

Saat ini, penyimpan data Blu-ray tersebut sudah mulai digunakan oleh Facebook dan bisa menyimpan sejumlah besar data, mencapai 30 Petabyte. Ke depannya, perusahaan jejaring sosial itu berniat menggunakan flash memori hemat energi untuk menyimpan data, tetapi solusi ini relatif mahal dibandingkan alternatif lain.

A 214-pound Queens housewife struggled with a lifelong addiction to food until she shed 72 pounds and became the public face of the worldwide weight-control empire Weight Watchers.

WASHINGTON — During a training course on defending against knife attacks, a young Salt Lake City police officer asked a question: “How close can somebody get to me before I’m justified in using deadly force?”

Dennis Tueller, the instructor in that class more than three decades ago, decided to find out. In the fall of 1982, he performed a rudimentary series of tests and concluded that an armed attacker who bolted toward an officer could clear 21 feet in the time it took most officers to draw, aim and fire their weapon.

The next spring, Mr. Tueller published his findings in SWAT magazine and transformed police training in the United States. The “21-foot rule” became dogma. It has been taught in police academies around the country, accepted by courts and cited by officers to justify countless shootings, including recent episodes involving a homeless woodcarver in Seattle and a schizophrenic woman in San Francisco.

Now, amid the largest national debate over policing since the 1991 beating of Rodney King in Los Angeles, a small but vocal set of law enforcement officials are calling for a rethinking of the 21-foot rule and other axioms that have emphasized how to use force, not how to avoid it. Several big-city police departments are already re-examining when officers should chase people or draw their guns and when they should back away, wait or try to defuse the situation

The career criminals in genre novels don’t have money problems. If they need some, they just go out and steal it. But such financial transactions can backfire, which is what happened back in 2004 when the Texas gang in Michael

Ms. Pryor, who served more than two decades in the State Department, was the author of well-regarded biographies of the founder of the American Red Cross and the Confederate commander.

As he reflected on the festering wounds deepened by race and grievance that have been on painful display in America’s cities lately, President Obama on Monday found himself thinking about a young man he had just met named Malachi.

A few minutes before, in a closed-door round-table discussion at Lehman College in the Bronx, Mr. Obama had asked a group of black and Hispanic students from disadvantaged backgrounds what could be done to help them reach their goals. Several talked about counseling and guidance programs.

“Malachi, he just talked about — we should talk about love,” Mr. Obama told a crowd afterward, drifting away from his prepared remarks. “Because Malachi and I shared the fact that our dad wasn’t around and that sometimes we wondered why he wasn’t around and what had happened. But really, that’s what this comes down to is: Do we love these kids?”

Many presidents have governed during times of racial tension, but Mr. Obama is the first to see in the mirror a face that looks like those on the other side of history’s ledger. While his first term was consumed with the economy, war and health care, his second keeps coming back to the societal divide that was not bridged by his election. A president who eschewed focusing on race now seems to have found his voice again as he thinks about how to use his remaining time in office and beyond.

Obama Speaks of a ‘Sense of Unfairness’

Obama Speaks of a ‘Sense of Unfairness’

At an event announcing the creation of a nonprofit focusing on young minority men, President Obama talked about the underlying reasons for recent protests in Baltimore and other cities.

By Associated Press on Publish Date May 4, 2015. Photo by Stephen Crowley/The New York Times.

In the aftermath of racially charged unrest in places like Baltimore, Ferguson, Mo., and New York, Mr. Obama came to the Bronx on Monday for the announcement of a new nonprofit organization that is being spun off from his White House initiative called My Brother’s Keeper. Staked by more than $80 million in commitments from corporations and other donors, the new group, My Brother’s Keeper Alliance, will in effect provide the nucleus for Mr. Obama’s post-presidency, which will begin in January 2017.

“This will remain a mission for me and for Michelle not just for the rest of my presidency but for the rest of my life,” Mr. Obama said. “And the reason is simple,” he added. Referring to some of the youths he had just met, he said: “We see ourselves in these young men. I grew up without a dad. I grew up lost sometimes and adrift, not having a sense of a clear path. The only difference between me and a lot of other young men in this neighborhood and all across the country is that I grew up in an environment that was a little more forgiving.”

Organizers said the new alliance already had financial pledges from companies like American Express, Deloitte, Discovery Communications and News Corporation. The money will be used to help companies address obstacles facing young black and Hispanic men, provide grants to programs for disadvantaged youths, and help communities aid their populations.

Joe Echevarria, a former chief executive of Deloitte, the accounting and consulting firm, will lead the alliance, and among those on its leadership team or advisory group are executives at PepsiCo, News Corporation, Sprint, BET and Prudential Group Insurance; former Secretary of State Colin L. Powell; Senator Cory Booker, Democrat of New Jersey; former Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr.; the music star John Legend; the retired athletes Alonzo Mourning, Jerome Bettis and Shaquille O’Neal; and the mayors of Indianapolis, Sacramento and Philadelphia.

The alliance, while nominally independent of the White House, may face some of the same questions confronting former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton as she begins another presidential campaign. Some of those donating to the alliance may have interests in government action, and skeptics may wonder whether they are trying to curry favor with the president by contributing.

“The Obama administration will have no role in deciding how donations are screened and what criteria they’ll set at the alliance for donor policies, because it’s an entirely separate entity,” Josh Earnest, the White House press secretary, told reporters on Air Force One en route to New York. But he added, “I’m confident that the members of the board are well aware of the president’s commitment to transparency.”

The alliance was in the works before the disturbances last week after the death of Freddie Gray, the black man who suffered fatal injuries while in police custody in Baltimore, but it reflected the evolution of Mr. Obama’s presidency. For him, in a way, it is coming back to issues that animated him as a young community organizer and politician. It was his own struggle with race and identity, captured in his youthful memoir, “Dreams From My Father,” that stood him apart from other presidential aspirants.

But that was a side of him that he kept largely to himself through the first years of his presidency while he focused on other priorities like turning the economy around, expanding government-subsidized health care and avoiding electoral land mines en route to re-election.

After securing a second term, Mr. Obama appeared more emboldened. Just a month after his 2013 inauguration, he talked passionately about opportunity and race with a group of teenage boys in Chicago, a moment aides point to as perhaps the first time he had spoken about these issues in such a personal, powerful way as president. A few months later, he publicly lamented the death of Trayvon Martin, a black Florida teenager, saying that “could have been me 35 years ago.”

That case, along with public ruptures of anger over police shootings in Ferguson and elsewhere, have pushed the issue of race and law enforcement onto the public agenda. Aides said they imagined that with his presidency in its final stages, Mr. Obama might be thinking more about what comes next and causes he can advance as a private citizen.

That is not to say that his public discussion of these issues has been universally welcomed. Some conservatives said he had made matters worse by seeming in their view to blame police officers in some of the disputed cases.

“President Obama, when he was elected, could have been a unifying leader,” Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, a Republican candidate for president, said at a forum last week. “He has made decisions that I think have inflamed racial tensions.”

On the other side of the ideological spectrum, some liberal African-American activists have complained that Mr. Obama has not done enough to help downtrodden communities. While he is speaking out more, these critics argue, he has hardly used the power of the presidency to make the sort of radical change they say is necessary.

The line Mr. Obama has tried to straddle has been a serrated one. He condemns police brutality as he defends most officers as honorable. He condemns “criminals and thugs” who looted in Baltimore while expressing empathy with those trapped in a cycle of poverty and hopelessness.

In the Bronx on Monday, Mr. Obama bemoaned the death of Brian Moore, a plainclothes New York police officer who had died earlier in the day after being shot in the head Saturday on a Queens street. Most police officers are “good and honest and fair and care deeply about their communities,” even as they put their lives on the line, Mr. Obama said.

“Which is why in addressing the issues in Baltimore or Ferguson or New York, the point I made was that if we’re just looking at policing, we’re looking at it too narrowly,” he added. “If we ask the police to simply contain and control problems that we ourselves have been unwilling to invest and solve, that’s not fair to the communities, it’s not fair to the police.”

Moreover, if society writes off some people, he said, “that’s not the kind of country I want to live in; that’s not what America is about.”

His message to young men like Malachi Hernandez, who attends Boston Latin Academy in Massachusetts, is not to give up.

“I want you to know you matter,” he said. “You matter to us.”

WASHINGTON — The last three men to win the Republican nomination have been the prosperous son of a president (George W. Bush), a senator who could not recall how many homes his family owned (John McCain of Arizona; it was seven) and a private equity executive worth an estimated $200 million (Mitt Romney).

The candidates hoping to be the party’s nominee in 2016 are trying to create a very different set of associations. On Sunday, Ben Carson, a retired neurosurgeon, joined the presidential field.

Senator Marco Rubio of Florida praises his parents, a bartender and a Kmart stock clerk, as he urges audiences not to forget “the workers in our hotel kitchens, the landscaping crews in our neighborhoods, the late-night janitorial staff that clean our offices.”

Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin, a preacher’s son, posts on Twitter about his ham-and-cheese sandwiches and boasts of his coupon-clipping frugality. His $1 Kohl’s sweater has become a campaign celebrity in its own right.

Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky laments the existence of “two Americas,” borrowing the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s phrase to describe economically and racially troubled communities like Ferguson, Mo., and Detroit.

“Some say, ‘But Democrats care more about the poor,’ ” Mr. Paul likes to say. “If that’s true, why is black unemployment still twice white unemployment? Why has household income declined by $3,500 over the past six years?”

We are in the midst of the Empathy Primary — the rhetorical battleground shaping the Republican presidential field of 2016.

Harmed by the perception that they favor the wealthy at the expense of middle-of-the-road Americans, the party’s contenders are each trying their hardest to get across what the elder George Bush once inelegantly told recession-battered voters in 1992: “Message: I care.”

Their ability to do so — less bluntly, more sincerely — could prove decisive in an election year when power, privilege and family connections will loom large for both parties.

Questions of understanding and compassion cost Republicans in the last election. Mr. Romney, who memorably dismissed the “47 percent” of Americans as freeloaders, lost to President Obama by 63 percentage points among voters who cast their ballots for the candidate who “cares about people like me,” according to exit polls.

And a Pew poll from February showed that people still believe Republicans are indifferent to working Americans: 54 percent said the Republican Party does not care about the middle class.

That taint of callousness explains why Senator Ted Cruz of Texas declared last week that Republicans “are and should be the party of the 47 percent” — and why another son of a president, Jeb Bush, has made economic opportunity the centerpiece of his message.

With his pedigree and considerable wealth — since he left the Florida governor’s office almost a decade ago he has earned millions of dollars sitting on corporate boards and advising banks — Mr. Bush probably has the most complicated task making the argument to voters that he understands their concerns.

On a visit last week to Puerto Rico, Mr. Bush sounded every bit the populist, railing against “elites” who have stifled economic growth and innovation. In the kind of economy he envisions leading, he said: “We wouldn’t have the middle being squeezed. People in poverty would have a chance to rise up. And the social strains that exist — because the haves and have-nots is the big debate in our country today — would subside.”

Who Is Running for President (and Who’s Not)?

Republicans’ emphasis on poorer and working-class Americans now represents a shift from the party’s longstanding focus on business owners and “job creators” as the drivers of economic opportunity.

This is intentional, Republican operatives said.

In the last presidential election, Republicans rushed to defend business owners against what they saw as hostility by Democrats to successful, wealthy entrepreneurs.

“Part of what you had was a reaction to the Democrats’ dehumanization of business owners: ‘Oh, you think you started your plumbing company? No you didn’t,’ ” said Grover Norquist, the conservative activist and president of Americans for Tax Reform.

But now, Mr. Norquist said, Republicans should move past that. “Focus on the people in the room who know someone who couldn’t get a job, or a promotion, or a raise because taxes are too high or regulations eat up companies’ time,” he said. “The rich guy can take care of himself.”

Democrats argue that the public will ultimately see through such an approach because Republican positions like opposing a minimum-wage increase and giving private banks a larger role in student loans would hurt working Americans.

“If Republican candidates are just repeating the same tired policies, I’m not sure that smiling while saying it is going to be enough,” said Guy Cecil, a Democratic strategist who is joining a “super PAC” working on behalf of Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Republicans have already attacked Mrs. Clinton over the wealth and power she and her husband have accumulated, caricaturing her as an out-of-touch multimillionaire who earns hundreds of thousands of dollars per speech and has not driven a car since 1996.

Mr. Walker hit this theme recently on Fox News, pointing to Mrs. Clinton’s lucrative book deals and her multiple residences. “This is not someone who is connected with everyday Americans,” he said. His own net worth, according to The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, is less than a half-million dollars; Mr. Walker also owes tens of thousands of dollars on his credit cards.

But showing off a cheap sweater or boasting of a bootstraps family background not only helps draw a contrast with Mrs. Clinton’s latter-day affluence, it is also an implicit argument against Mr. Bush.

Mr. Walker, who featured a 1998 Saturn with more than 100,000 miles on the odometer in a 2010 campaign ad during his first run for governor, likes to talk about flipping burgers at McDonald’s as a young person. His mother, he has said, grew up on a farm with no indoor plumbing until she was in high school.

Mr. Rubio, among the least wealthy members of the Senate, with an estimated net worth of around a half-million dollars, uses his working-class upbringing as evidence of the “exceptionalism” of America, “where even the son of a bartender and a maid can have the same dreams and the same future as those who come from power and privilege.”

Mr. Cruz alludes to his family’s dysfunction — his parents, he says, were heavy drinkers — and recounts his father’s tale of fleeing Cuba with $100 sewn into his underwear.

Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey notes that his father paid his way through college working nights at an ice cream plant.

But sometimes the attempts at projecting authenticity can seem forced. Mr. Christie recently found himself on the defensive after telling a New Hampshire audience, “I don’t consider myself a wealthy man.” Tax returns showed that he and his wife, a longtime Wall Street executive, earned nearly $700,000 in 2013.

The story of success against the odds is a political classic, even if it is one the Republican Party has not been able to tell for a long time. Ronald Reagan liked to say that while he had not been born on the wrong side of the tracks, he could always hear the whistle. Richard Nixon was fond of reminding voters how he was born in a house his father had built.

“Probably the idea that is most attractive to an average voter, and an idea that both Republicans and Democrats try to craft into their messages, is this idea that you can rise from nothing,” said Charles C. W. Cooke, a writer for National Review.

There is a certain delight Republicans take in turning that message to their advantage now.

“That’s what Obama did with Hillary,” Mr. Cooke said. “He acknowledged it openly: ‘This is ridiculous. Look at me, this one-term senator with dark skin and all of America’s unsolved racial problems, running against the wife of the last Democratic president.”

From sea to shining sea, or at least from one side of the Hudson to the other, politicians you have barely heard of are being accused of wrongdoing. There were so many court proceedings involving public officials on Monday that it was hard to keep up.

In Newark, two underlings of Gov. Chris Christie were arraigned on charges that they were in on the truly deranged plot to block traffic leading onto the George Washington Bridge.

Ten miles away, in Lower Manhattan, Dean G. Skelos, the leader of the New York State Senate, and his son, Adam B. Skelos, were arrested by the Federal Bureau of Investigation on accusations of far more conventional political larceny, involving a job with a sewer company for the son and commissions on title insurance and bond work.

The younger man managed to receive a 150 percent pay increase from the sewer company even though, as he said on tape, he “literally knew nothing about water or, you know, any of that stuff,” according to a criminal complaint the United States attorney’s office filed.

The success of Adam Skelos, 32, was attributed by prosecutors to his father’s influence as the leader of the Senate and as a potentate among state Republicans. The indictment can also be read as one of those unfailingly sad tales of a father who cannot stop indulging a grown son. The senator himself is not alleged to have profited from the schemes, except by being relieved of the burden of underwriting Adam.

The bridge traffic caper is its own species of crazy; what distinguishes the charges against the two Skeloses is the apparent absence of a survival instinct. It is one thing not to know anything about water or that stuff. More remarkable, if true, is the fact that the sewer machinations continued even after the former New York Assembly speaker, Sheldon Silver, was charged in January with taking bribes disguised as fees.

It was by then common gossip in political and news media circles that Senator Skelos, a Republican, the counterpart in the Senate to Mr. Silver, a Democrat, in the Assembly, could be next in line for the criminal dock. “Stay tuned,” the United States attorney, Preet Bharara said, leaving not much to the imagination.

Even though the cat had been unmistakably belled, Skelos father and son continued to talk about how to advance the interests of the sewer company, though the son did begin to use a burner cellphone, the kind people pay for in cash, with no traceable contracts.

That was indeed prudent, as prosecutors had been wiretapping the cellphones of both men. But it would seem that the burner was of limited value, because by then the prosecutors had managed to secure the help of a business executive who agreed to record calls with the Skeloses. It would further seem that the business executive was more attentive to the perils of pending investigations than the politician.

Through the end of the New York State budget negotiations in March, the hopes of the younger Skelos rested on his father’s ability to devise legislation that would benefit the sewer company. That did not pan out. But Senator Skelos did boast that he had haggled with Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo, a Democrat, in a successful effort to raise a $150 million allocation for Long Island to $550 million, for what the budget called “transformative economic development projects.” It included money for the kind of work done by the sewer company.

The lawyer for Adam Skelos said he was not guilty and would win in court. Senator Skelos issued a ringing declaration that he was unequivocally innocent.

THIS was also the approach taken in New Jersey by Bill Baroni, a man of great presence and eloquence who stopped outside the federal courthouse to note that he had taken risks as a Republican by bucking his party to support paid family leave, medical marijuana and marriage equality. “I would never risk my career, my job, my reputation for something like this,” Mr. Baroni said. “I am an innocent man.”

The lawyer for his co-defendant, Bridget Anne Kelly, the former deputy chief of staff to Mr. Christie, a Republican, said that she would strongly rebut the charges.

Perhaps they had nothing to do with the lane closings. But neither Mr. Baroni nor Ms. Kelly addressed the question of why they did not return repeated calls from the mayor of Fort Lee, N.J., begging them to stop the traffic tie-ups, over three days.

That silence was a low moment. But perhaps New York hit bottom faster. Senator Skelos, the prosecutors charged, arranged to meet Long Island politicians at the wake of Wenjian Liu, a New York City police officer shot dead in December, to press for payments to the company employing his son.

Sometimes it seems as though for some people, the only thing to be ashamed of is shame itself.

GREENWICH, Conn. — Mago is in the bedroom. You can go in.

The big man lies on a hospital bed with his bare feet scraping its bottom rail. His head is propped on a scarlet pillow, the left temple dented, the right side paralyzed. His dark hair is kept just long enough to conceal the scars.

The occasional sounds he makes are understood only by his wife, but he still has that punctuating left hand. In slow motion, the fingers curl and close. A thumbs-up greeting.

Hello, Mago.

This is Magomed Abdusalamov, 34, also known as the Russian Tyson, also known as Mago. He is a former heavyweight boxer who scored four knockouts and 14 technical knockouts in his first 18 professional fights. He preferred to stand between rounds. Sitting conveyed weakness.

But Mago lost his 19th fight, his big chance, at the packed Theater at Madison Square Garden in November 2013. His 19th decision, and his last.

Now here he is, in a small bedroom in a working-class neighborhood in Greenwich, in a modest house his family rents cheap from a devoted friend. The air-pressure machine for his mattress hums like an expectant crowd.

Today is like any other day, except for those days when he is hurried in crisis to the hospital. Every three hours during the night, his slight wife, Bakanay, 28, has risen to turn his 6-foot-3 body — 210 pounds of dead weight. It has to be done. Infections of the gaping bedsore above his tailbone have nearly killed him.

Then, with the help of a young caretaker, Baka has gotten two of their daughters off to elementary school and settled down the toddler. Yes, Mago and Baka are blessed with all girls, but they had also hoped for a son someday.

They feed Mago as they clean him; it’s easier that way. For breakfast, which comes with a side of crushed antiseizure pills, he likes oatmeal with a squirt of Hershey’s chocolate syrup. But even oatmeal must be puréed and fed to him by spoon.

He opens his mouth to indicate more, the way a baby does. But his paralysis has made everything a choking hazard. His water needs a stirring of powdered food thickener, and still he chokes — eh-eh-eh — as he tries to cough up what will not go down.

Mago used to drink only water. No alcohol. Not even soda. A sip of juice would be as far as he dared. Now even water betrays him.

With the caretaker’s help, Baka uses a washcloth and soap to clean his body and shampoo his hair. How handsome still, she has thought. Sometimes, in the night, she leaves the bedroom to watch old videos, just to hear again his voice in the fullness of life. She cries, wipes her eyes and returns, feigning happiness. Mago must never see her sad.

When Baka finishes, Mago is cleanshaven and fresh down to his trimmed and filed toenails. “I want him to look good,” she says.

Theirs was an arranged Muslim marriage in Makhachkala, in the Russian republic of Dagestan. He was 23, she was 18 and their future hinged on boxing. Sometimes they would shadowbox in love, her David to his Goliath. You are so strong, he would tell her.

His father once told him he could either be a bandit or an athlete, but if he chose banditry, “I will kill you.” This paternal advice, Mago later told The Ventura County Reporter, “made it a very easy decision for me.”

Mago won against mediocre competition, in Moscow and Hollywood, Fla., in Las Vegas and Johnstown, Pa. He was knocked down only once, and even then, it surprised more than hurt. He scored a technical knockout in the next round.

It all led up to this: the undercard at the Garden, Mike Perez vs. Magomed Abdusalamov, 10 rounds, on HBO. A win, he believed, would improve his chances of taking on the heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko, who sat in the crowd of 4,600 with his fiancée, the actress Hayden Panettiere, watching.

Wearing black-and-red trunks and a green mouth guard, Mago went to work. But in the first round, a hard forearm to his left cheek rocked him. At the bell, he returned to his corner, and this time, he sat down. “I think it’s broken,” he repeatedly said in Russian.

Maybe at that point, somebody — the referee, the ringside doctors, his handlers — should have stopped the fight, under a guiding principle: better one punch too early than one punch too late. But the bloody trade of blows continued into the seventh, eighth, ninth, a hand and orbital bone broken, his face transforming.

Meanwhile, in the family’s apartment in Miami, Baka forced herself to watch the broadcast. She could see it in his swollen eyes. Something was off.

After the final round, Perez raised his tattooed arms in victory, and Mago wandered off in a fog. He had taken 312 punches in about 40 minutes, for a purse of $40,000.

 

 

In the locker room, doctors sutured a cut above Mago’s left eye and tested his cognitive abilities. He did not do well. The ambulance that waits in expectation at every fight was not summoned by boxing officials.

Blood was pooling in Mago’s cranial cavity as he left the Garden. He vomited on the pavement while his handlers flagged a taxi to St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital. There, doctors induced a coma and removed part of his skull to drain fluids and ease the swelling.

Then came the stroke.

It is lunchtime now, and the aroma of puréed beef and potatoes lingers. So do the questions.

How will Mago and Baka pay the $2 million in medical bills they owe? What if their friend can no longer offer them this home? Will they win their lawsuits against the five ringside doctors, the referee, and a New York State boxing inspector? What about Mago’s future care?

Most of all: Is this it?

A napkin rests on Mago’s chest. As another spoonful of mush approaches, he opens his mouth, half-swallows, chokes, and coughs until it clears. Eh-eh-eh. Sometimes he turns bluish, but Baka never shows fear. Always happy for Mago.

Some days he is wheeled out for physical therapy or speech therapy. Today, two massage therapists come to knead his half-limp body like a pair of skilled corner men.

Soon, Mago will doze. Then his three daughters, ages 2, 6 and 9, will descend upon him to talk of their day. Not long ago, the oldest lugged his championship belt to school for a proud show-and-tell moment. Her classmates were amazed at the weight of it.

Then, tonight, there will be more puréed food and pulverized medication, more coughing, and more tender care from his wife, before sleep comes.

Goodbye, Mago.

He half-smiles, raises his one good hand, and forms a fist.
