HAJAR JAHANAM

Pengecatan yang baik telah membutuhkan persiapan-persiapan yang matang. Persiapan yang benar akan dapat membuat pekerjaan pengecatan lebih capat, mudah, dan biaya rendah, selain memberikan hasil akhir yang baik juga lapisan cat lebih tahan lama, selain pemilihan produk yang tepat.

Ada beberapa hal yang telah mempengaruhi keberhasilan pengecatan dinding tembok (bata), yang paling berpengaruh adalah kualitas atau mutu dinding itu sendiri (terlepas dari kualitas cat yang dipakai). Masalah yang sering timbul akibat dari kualitas dinding yang jelek biasanya adalah belang-belang seperti basah (bila kadar air dalam dinding terlalu tinggi), lapisan cat yang menggelembung, dll.

Sedangkan bila yang dipakai cat dinding dengan kualitas rendah maka masalah yang sering terjadi adalah pengapuran, warnanya luntur, dll. Bagaimana kita tahu cat yang kita pakai tersebut berkualitas?. Cat yang berkualitas minimal telah mempunyai empat fungsi yang harus dimiliki diantaranya daya sebar, daya tutup, mudah dalam pengaplikasiannya, dan aman bagi kesehatan lingkungan. Memang semakin tinggi kualitas cat, maka harganya pun juga akan semakin mahal, karena disamping keempat hal pokok diatas, cat yang berkualitas akan dapat memiliki nilai tambah seperti daya tahan terhadap cuaca, anti jamur, tidak memudar (anti fading), mudah dibersihkan (washable), dapat menutup retak rambut (cover hair line crack) serta tambahan pengharum (fragnance).

PROSES PERSIAPAN DINDING

Yang harus di lakukan untuk dapat memulai proses pengecetan adalah menyiapkan permukaan yang akan dicat. Pastikan permukaan dinding bersih dan kering untuk dapat mencegah terjadinya pengelupasan. Biasanya memakan waktu 28 hari agar reaksi pengerasan semen pada plesteran beton mengering dengan sempurna.

Setelah permukaan tembok sudah benar-benar kering, dan sebelum tembok di plamir, lapisi dulu tembok dengan Wall Sealer, guna untuk menetralisir PH semen agar sesuai dengan PH cat. Dengan wall sealer Cat tidak mudah mengelupas dan warna cat tidak akan berubah dari warna aslinya.Cat akan menjadi seperti kapur jika daya serap tembok masih bekerja, untuk itu tembok juga harus dilapisi dengan Wall Sealer, namun jika untuk alasan ekonomis anda dapat melarutkan satu sampai dua bungkus lem putih dalam satu galon air kemudian kuaskan pada tembok sebelum tembok di cat.

PROSES PLAMIR DAN CAT DASAR
Sebelum pengecatan dilakukan ada pekerjaan pendahuluan yaitu plamir dinding. Plamir dinding terdiri dari 3 bagian bahan, yang pertama adalah semen putih, lem putih, dan kalsium. Semua bahan tersebut telah mempunyai fungsi masing - masing.
Penggunaan kalium pada bahan plamir berfungsi sebagai penambah volum dari plamir dan memudahkan penghalusan, namun apabila terlalu banyak justru akan dapat menyebabkan cat yang nanti kita kerjakan menjadi kurang kuat. Sebagian kontraktor bangunan sudah tidak menggunakan kalium sebagai campuran plamir, kecuali pada pekerjaan yang memerlukan harga sangat hemat dan waktu penyelesaian yang relatif cepat.
Teknik melamir yang efektif adalah dengan menggunakan kapi besar atau bahan bekas dari pipa pvc yang dibuat kapi. Dengan mengoleskan pada arah vertikal di dinding kemudian untuk lapis selanjutnya pada arah horisontal, demikian seterusnya sampai dinding menjadi rata. Lapisan yang kedua haruslah menunggu lapisan yang pertama kering dahulu.
Penghalusan menggunakan amplas dengan arah memutar. Alat penghalus otomatis sebaik digunakan agar lebih cepat dalam pengerjaannya.
Setelah diplamir, dilakukan Pelapisan cat dasar atau alkali sealer. Sebelum dilakukan pengecatan dengan cat tembok aplikasikan terlebih dahulu cat dasar alkali sealer, yang berfungsi untuk memberikan lapisan dibawah cat tembok sehingga memperkecil kontak langsung dengan alkali tembok. Selain itu alkali sealer berfungsi memberikan lapisan warna putih sehingga dapat mempercepat penutupan warna cat tembok pada dinding. Alkali sealer berbeda dengan cat putih. Penggunaan cat putih sebagai dasaran pengecatan tidak akan menghindari kontak langsung alkali tembok dengan cat, tetapi hanya berfungsi membantu daya tutup cat tembok saja.


PROSES PENGECATAN DINDING
Proses pengecatan dinding dimulai ketika semua permukaan dinding telah terplamir , sudah dalam keadaan halus teramplas, dan sudah dilapisi dengan cat dasar.

Penggunaan rol memang sangat efektif ketika kita mengecat pada pada bidang dinding yang luas, namun apabila hendak merapikan pada sudut-sudut ruang tetaplah kuas yang digunakan. Sebenarnya dengan menggunakan kuas cat akan lebih terasa hemat karena tidak terlalu banyak yang lengket pada rol kita. Untuk hasil yang sempurna cat tembok jangan terlalu kental, encerkan dengan air 30-35 persen dari total berat cat.

Lapis demi lapis kita cat, cara yang paling cepat agar dinding lekas tertutup rata oleh cat adalah dengan cara bersilangan. Lapisan pertama vertikal atau horisontal, kemudian tunggu kering, lapisan yang kedua kebalikannya.Selang waktu antara setiap lapis harus cukup lama. Secara teoritis adalah 2-4 jam, tetap sebaikny minimal 8 jam atau semalam.

TIPS DAN TRIK DALAM PENGECATAN
1.      Kerjakan pengecatan pada siang hari.
2.      Mulai dari dekat jendela. menuju ke ruang dalam.
3.      Bila mengecat seluruh ruangan, kerjakanlah mulai dari langit-langit yang diteruskan ke dinding dekat kusen jendela, pintu-pintu, dan kemudian ke bagian bawah.
4.      Mengecat tiga lapis sesuai dengan anjuran pencampuran air lebih baik dari pada satu lapisan tebal, usahakan menyediakan cat yang cukup unluk area yang akan dicat dengan menghitung iuas area yang akan dicat, jangan mengecat pada suatu bidang yang lebar sekaligus. Batasi bidang pengecafan aniara satu sampai dua meter persegi sekali mengecat. Baru dilanjuttkan ke bidang berikutnya, Perhatikanlah petunjuk-petunjuk mudah pada kemasan cat sebelum bekerja.
5.      Lakukanlah pembuangan sisa saat melakukan pengecatan karena kita harus bertanggung jawab terhadap lingkungan dengan menghindarkan membuang limbah/sisa cat ke dalam saluran pembuangan.
6.      Terakhir adalah membiarkan sisa cat mengering di wadahnya sebelum dibuang ke tempat sampah.

Dengan mengikuti petunjuk-petunjuk sederhana tersebut pengecatan akan lebih mudah, menghemat waktu, uang dan tenaga. Karena, persiapan permukaan yang benar akan memberikan hasil akhir yang lebih baik dan perrnukaan yang dicatakan lebih tahan lama, jangan mencoba untuk mengecat satu lapisan dengan tebal.
 
Trik Penggunaan Aci Instan pengganti plamir dan cat dasar

Mengerjakan finishing din-ding semakin mudah dan cepat dengan aci instan. Warnanya yang putih dapat menggantikan dua proses finishing dinding.

Mari kita hitung berapa tahap dibutuhkan sebelum mengecat dinding. Setelah plesteran, dinding mesti diaci. Setelah itu diplamir dan diampelas agar permukaannya halus. Cat dasar perlu diaplikasikan agar cat dinding dapat menutup rata permukaan tanpa menyisakan belang di beberapa tempat. Setiap tahap membutuhkan waktu antara dua-lima hari agar hasil finishing din-ding sempurna.

Proses yang demikian lama dan melelahkan itu, ternyata dapat menjadi singkat dan praktis. Caranya, Anda bisa mensubs-titusi material sehingga dapat menghilang-kan dua tahap pengerjaan, yaitu proses plamir dan pengecatan dasar. Bagaimana caranya?"Dua proses itu bisa dihilangkan jika Anda menggunakan semen aci instan

Aci instan terbuat dari campuran filler, semen putih, kapur, dan zat aditif. Ini menjadikan aci instan dapat merekat erat pada segala permukaan dinding (beton dan plesteran). Daya lentur dan proses pengeringan yang perlahan-lahan menjadikan aci instan sebagai material yang tepat untuk mengurangi retak rambut.

Retak rambut itu bisa terjadi jika proses pengeringan semen berlangsung cepat. Aci instan mengering lebih lama. Dengan demikian, proses muai- susutnya pun lambat, sehingga retak-retak rambut itu berkurang.

Penggunaan aci instan dianjurkan dalam praktik sehari-hari. Meski harga material ini lebih mahal dari semen biasa, tapi sebetulnya bisa hemat. Jika dihitung total biayanya, penggunaan aci instan ini dapat menghemat waktu pengerjaan dan biaya pembangunan.

PANDUAN PENGECATAN TEMBOK DAN DINDING + RAB

saco-indonesia.com, Apabila sekarang ini mayoritas perangkat mobile telah menggunakan produk dari Corning yaitu Gorilla Glass, ada pula rumor bahwa akan dibuatnya layar berbahan safir. Kali ini muncul berita serupa yaitu layar berbahan kulit kerang.

Para peneliti dari McGill University, Kanada, ingin mencoba mengembangkan sebuah layar yang tahan banting dan benturan. Para peneliti tersebut telah terinspirasi dari kekuatan kerang.

Dikutip dari Cnet (30/01), para peneliti tersebut juga menjelaskan, "Kerang moluska telah memiliki lapisan luar yang boleh terbilang rapuh, namun apabila jika dibandingkan dengan bagian dalamnya, maka sangat berbeda, karena sangat kuat."

Oleh karena itu, para peneliti yang telah dipimpin oleh Profesor Francois Barthelat itu ingin mencoba meneliti dan meniru lapisan demi lapisan termasuk juga jaringan yang terdapat pada kerang untuk dapat diaplikasikan ke sebuah layar anti-bentur.

Barthelat juga berharap nantinya apabila penelitian yang dia lakukan bersama tim-nya itu akan berhasil, maka tidak hanya di perangkat mobile saja , penemuannya itu dapat juga digunakan di banyak hal.

11 LANGKAH MEMBAKAR KALORI DI LUAR RUANGAN

BALTIMORE — In the afternoons, the streets of Locust Point are clean and nearly silent. In front of the rowhouses, potted plants rest next to steps of brick or concrete. There is a shopping center nearby with restaurants, and a grocery store filled with fresh foods.

And the National Guard and the police are largely absent. So, too, residents say, are worries about what happened a few miles away on April 27 when, in a space of hours, parts of this city became riot zones.

“They’re not our reality,” Ashley Fowler, 30, said on Monday at the restaurant where she works. “They’re not what we’re living right now. We live in, not to be racist, white America.”

As Baltimore considers its way forward after the violent unrest brought by the death of Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old black man who died of injuries he suffered while in police custody, residents in its predominantly white neighborhoods acknowledge that they are sometimes struggling to understand what beyond Mr. Gray’s death spurred the turmoil here. For many, the poverty and troubled schools of gritty West Baltimore are distant troubles, glimpsed only when they pass through the area on their way somewhere else.

And so neighborhoods of Baltimore are facing altogether different reckonings after Mr. Gray’s death. In mostly black communities like Sandtown-Winchester, where some of the most destructive rioting played out last week, residents are hoping businesses will reopen and that the police will change their strategies. But in mostly white areas like Canton and Locust Point, some residents wonder what role, if any, they should play in reimagining stretches of Baltimore where they do not live.

“Most of the people are kind of at a loss as to what they’re supposed to do,” said Dr. Richard Lamb, a dentist who has practiced in the same Locust Point office for nearly 39 years. “I listen to the news reports. I listen to the clergymen. I listen to the facts of the rampant unemployment and the lack of opportunities in the area. Listen, I pay my taxes. Exactly what can I do?”

And in Canton, where the restaurants have clever names like Nacho Mama’s and Holy Crepe Bakery and Café, Sara Bahr said solutions seemed out of reach for a proudly liberal city.

“I can only imagine how frustrated they must be,” said Ms. Bahr, 36, a nurse who was out with her 3-year-old daughter, Sally. “I just wish I knew how to solve poverty. I don’t know what to do to make it better.”

The day of unrest and the overwhelmingly peaceful demonstrations that followed led to hundreds of arrests, often for violations of the curfew imposed on the city for five consecutive nights while National Guard soldiers patrolled the streets. Although there were isolated instances of trouble in Canton, the neighborhood association said on its website, many parts of southeast Baltimore were physically untouched by the tumult.

Tensions in the city bubbled anew on Monday after reports that the police had wounded a black man in Northwest Baltimore. The authorities denied those reports and sent officers to talk with the crowds that gathered while other officers clutching shields blocked traffic at Pennsylvania and West North Avenues.

Lt. Col. Melvin Russell, a community police officer, said officers had stopped a man suspected of carrying a handgun and that “one of those rounds was spent.”

Colonel Russell said officers had not opened fire, “so we couldn’t have shot him.”

The colonel said the man had not been injured but was taken to a hospital as a precaution. Nearby, many people stood in disbelief, despite the efforts by the authorities to quash reports they described as “unfounded.”

Monday’s episode was a brief moment in a larger drama that has yielded anger and confusion. Although many people said they were familiar with accounts of the police harassing or intimidating residents, many in Canton and Locust Point said they had never experienced it themselves. When they watched the unrest, which many protesters said was fueled by feelings that they lived only on Baltimore’s margins, even those like Ms. Bahr who were pained by what they saw said they could scarcely comprehend the emotions associated with it.

But others, like Lambi Vasilakopoulos, who runs a casual restaurant in Canton, said they were incensed by what unfolded last week.

“What happened wasn’t called for. Protests are one thing; looting is another thing,” he said, adding, “We’re very frustrated because we’re the ones who are going to pay for this.”

There were pockets of optimism, though, that Baltimore would enter a period of reconciliation.

“I’m just hoping for peace,” Natalie Boies, 53, said in front of the Locust Point home where she has lived for 50 years. “Learn to love each other; be patient with each other; find justice; and care.”

A skeptical Mr. Vasilakopoulos predicted tensions would worsen.

“It cannot be fixed,” he said. “It’s going to get worse. Why? Because people don’t obey the laws. They don’t want to obey them.”

But there were few fears that the violence that plagued West Baltimore last week would play out on these relaxed streets. The authorities, Ms. Fowler said, would make sure of that.

“They kept us safe here,” she said. “I didn’t feel uncomfortable when I was in my house three blocks away from here. I knew I was going to be O.K. because I knew they weren’t going to let anyone come and loot our properties or our businesses or burn our cars.”

Baltimore Residents Away From Turmoil Consider Their Role

Even as a high school student, Dave Goldberg was urging female classmates to speak up. As a young dot-com executive, he had one girlfriend after another, but fell hard for a driven friend named Sheryl Sandberg, pining after her for years. After they wed, Mr. Goldberg pushed her to negotiate hard for high compensation and arranged his schedule so that he could be home with their children when she was traveling for work.

Mr. Goldberg, who died unexpectedly on Friday, was a genial, 47-year-old Silicon Valley entrepreneur who built his latest company, SurveyMonkey, from a modest enterprise to one recently valued by investors at $2 billion. But he was also perhaps the signature male feminist of his era: the first major chief executive in memory to spur his wife to become as successful in business as he was, and an essential figure in “Lean In,” Ms. Sandberg’s blockbuster guide to female achievement.

Over the weekend, even strangers were shocked at his death, both because of his relatively young age and because they knew of him as the living, breathing, car-pooling center of a new philosophy of two-career marriage.

“They were very much the role models for what this next generation wants to grapple with,” said Debora L. Spar, the president of Barnard College. In a 2011 commencement speech there, Ms. Sandberg told the graduates that whom they married would be their most important career decision.

In the play “The Heidi Chronicles,” revived on Broadway this spring, a male character who is the founder of a media company says that “I don’t want to come home to an A-plus,” explaining that his ambitions require him to marry an unthreatening helpmeet. Mr. Goldberg grew up to hold the opposite view, starting with his upbringing in progressive Minneapolis circles where “there was woman power in every aspect of our lives,” Jeffrey Dachis, a childhood friend, said in an interview.

The Goldberg parents read “The Feminine Mystique” together — in fact, Mr. Goldberg’s father introduced it to his wife, according to Ms. Sandberg’s book. In 1976, Paula Goldberg helped found a nonprofit to aid children with disabilities. Her husband, Mel, a law professor who taught at night, made the family breakfast at home.

Later, when Dave Goldberg was in high school and his prom date, Jill Chessen, stayed silent in a politics class, he chastised her afterward. He said, “You need to speak up,” Ms. Chessen recalled in an interview. “They need to hear your voice.”

Years later, when Karin Gilford, an early employee at Launch Media, Mr. Goldberg’s digital music company, became a mother, he knew exactly what to do. He kept giving her challenging assignments, she recalled, but also let her work from home one day a week. After Yahoo acquired Launch, Mr. Goldberg became known for distributing roses to all the women in the office on Valentine’s Day.

Ms. Sandberg, who often describes herself as bossy-in-a-good-way, enchanted him when they became friendly in the mid-1990s. He “was smitten with her,” Ms. Chessen remembered. Ms. Sandberg was dating someone else, but Mr. Goldberg still hung around, even helping her and her then-boyfriend move, recalled Bob Roback, a friend and co-founder of Launch. When they finally married in 2004, friends remember thinking how similar the two were, and that the qualities that might have made Ms. Sandberg intimidating to some men drew Mr. Goldberg to her even more.

Over the next decade, Mr. Goldberg and Ms. Sandberg pioneered new ways of capturing information online, had a son and then a daughter, became immensely wealthy, and hashed out their who-does-what-in-this-marriage issues. Mr. Goldberg’s commute from the Bay Area to Los Angeles became a strain, so he relocated, later joking that he “lost the coin flip” of where they would live. He paid the bills, she planned the birthday parties, and both often left their offices at 5:30 so they could eat dinner with their children before resuming work afterward.

Friends in Silicon Valley say they were careful to conduct their careers separately, politely refusing when outsiders would ask one about the other’s work: Ms. Sandberg’s role building Facebook into an information and advertising powerhouse, and Mr. Goldberg at SurveyMonkey, which made polling faster and cheaper. But privately, their work was intertwined. He often began statements to his team with the phrase “Well, Sheryl said” sharing her business advice. He counseled her, too, starting with her salary negotiations with Mark Zuckerberg.

“I wanted Mark to really feel he stretched to get Sheryl, because she was worth it,” Mr. Goldberg explained in a 2013 “60 Minutes” interview, his Minnesota accent and his smile intact as he offered a rare peek of the intersection of marriage and money at the top of corporate life.

 

 

While his wife grew increasingly outspoken about women’s advancement, Mr. Goldberg quietly advised the men in the office on family and partnership matters, an associate said. Six out of 16 members of SurveyMonkey’s management team are female, an almost unheard-of ratio among Silicon Valley “unicorns,” or companies valued at over $1 billion.

When Mellody Hobson, a friend and finance executive, wrote a chapter of “Lean In” about women of color for the college edition of the book, Mr. Goldberg gave her feedback on the draft, a clue to his deep involvement. He joked with Ms. Hobson that she was too long-winded, like Ms. Sandberg, but aside from that, he said he loved the chapter, she said in an interview.

By then, Mr. Goldberg was a figure of fascination who inspired a “where can I get one of those?” reaction among many of the women who had read the best seller “Lean In.” Some lamented that Ms. Sandberg’s advice hinged too much on marrying a Dave Goldberg, who was humble enough to plan around his wife, attentive enough to worry about which shoes his young daughter would wear, and rich enough to help pay for the help that made the family’s balancing act manageable.

Now that he is gone, and Ms. Sandberg goes from being half of a celebrated partnership to perhaps the business world’s most prominent single mother, the pages of “Lean In” carry a new sting of loss.

“We are never at 50-50 at any given moment — perfect equality is hard to define or sustain — but we allow the pendulum to swing back and forth between us,” she wrote in 2013, adding that they were looking forward to raising teenagers together.

“Fortunately, I have Dave to figure it out with me,” she wrote.

The 2015 Met Gala has only officially begun, but there's a clear leader in the race for best couple, no small feat at an event that threatens to sap Hollywood of every celebrity it has for the duration of an East Coast evening.

That would be Marc Jacobs and his surprise guest (who, by some miracle, remained under wraps until their red carpet debut), Cher.

“This has been a dream of mine for a very, very long time,” Mr. Jacobs said.

It is Cher's first appearance at the Met Gala since 1997, when she arrived on the arm of Donatella Versace.

Hockey is not exactly known as a city game, but played on roller skates, it once held sway as the sport of choice in many New York neighborhoods.

“City kids had no rinks, no ice, but they would do anything to play hockey,” said Edward Moffett, former director of the Long Island City Y.M.C.A. Roller Hockey League, in Queens, whose games were played in city playgrounds going back to the 1940s.

From the 1960s through the 1980s, the league had more than 60 teams, he said. Players included the Mullen brothers of Hell’s Kitchen and Dan Dorion of Astoria, Queens, who would later play on ice for the National Hockey League.

One street legend from the heyday of New York roller hockey was Craig Allen, who lived in the Woodside Houses projects and became one of the city’s hardest hitters and top scorers.

“Craig was a warrior, one of the best roller hockey players in the city in the ’70s,” said Dave Garmendia, 60, a retired New York police officer who grew up playing with Mr. Allen. “His teammates loved him and his opponents feared him.”

Young Craig took up hockey on the streets of Queens in the 1960s, playing pickup games between sewer covers, wearing steel-wheeled skates clamped onto school shoes and using a roll of electrical tape as the puck.

His skill and ferocity drew attention, Mr. Garmendia said, but so did his skin color. He was black, in a sport made up almost entirely by white players.

“Roller hockey was a white kid’s game, plain and simple, but Craig broke the color barrier,” Mr. Garmendia said. “We used to say Craig did more for race relations than the N.A.A.C.P.”

Mr. Allen went on to coach and referee roller hockey in New York before moving several years ago to South Carolina. But he continued to organize an annual alumni game at Dutch Kills Playground in Long Island City, the same site that held the local championship games.

The reunion this year was on Saturday, but Mr. Allen never made it. On April 26, just before boarding the bus to New York, he died of an asthma attack at age 61.

Word of his death spread rapidly among hundreds of his old hockey colleagues who resolved to continue with the event, now renamed the Craig Allen Memorial Roller Hockey Reunion.

The turnout on Saturday was the largest ever, with players pulling on their old equipment, choosing sides and taking once again to the rink of cracked blacktop with faded lines and circles. They wore no helmets, although one player wore a fedora.

Another, Vinnie Juliano, 77, of Long Island City, wore his hearing aids, along with his 50-year-old taped-up quads, or four-wheeled skates with a leather boot. Many players here never converted to in-line skates, and neither did Mr. Allen, whose photograph appeared on a poster hanging behind the players’ bench.

“I’m seeing people walking by wondering why all these rusty, grizzly old guys are here playing hockey,” one player, Tommy Dominguez, said. “We’re here for Craig, and let me tell you, these old guys still play hard.”

Everyone seemed to have a Craig Allen story, from his earliest teams at Public School 151 to the Bryant Rangers, the Woodside Wings, the Woodside Blues and more.

Mr. Allen, who became a yellow-cab driver, was always recruiting new talent. He gained the nickname Cabby for his habit of stopping at playgrounds all over the city to scout players.

Teams were organized around neighborhoods and churches, and often sponsored by local bars. Mr. Allen, for one, played for bars, including Garry Owen’s and on the Fiddler’s Green Jokers team in Inwood, Manhattan.

Play was tough and fights were frequent.

“We were basically street gangs on skates,” said Steve Rogg, 56, a mail clerk who grew up in Jackson Heights, Queens, and who on Saturday wore his Riedell Classic quads from 1972. “If another team caught up with you the night before a game, they tossed you a beating so you couldn’t play the next day.”

Mr. Garmendia said Mr. Allen’s skin color provoked many fights.

“When we’d go to some ignorant neighborhoods, a lot of players would use slurs,” Mr. Garmendia said, recalling a game in Ozone Park, Queens, where local fans parked motorcycles in a lineup next to the blacktop and taunted Mr. Allen. Mr. Garmendia said he checked a player into the motorcycles, “and the bikes went down like dominoes, which started a serious brawl.”

A group of fans at a game in Brooklyn once stuck a pole through the rink fence as Mr. Allen skated by and broke his jaw, Mr. Garmendia said, adding that carloads of reinforcements soon arrived to defend Mr. Allen.

And at another racially incited brawl, the police responded with six patrol cars and a helicopter.

Before play began on Saturday, the players gathered at center rink to honor Mr. Allen. Billy Barnwell, 59, of Woodside, recalled once how an all-white, all-star squad snubbed Mr. Allen by playing him third string. He scored seven goals in the first game and made first string immediately.

“He’d always hear racial stuff before the game, and I’d ask him, ‘How do you put up with that?’” Mr. Barnwell recalled. “Craig would say, ‘We’ll take care of it,’ and by the end of the game, he’d win guys over. They’d say, ‘This guy’s good.’”

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

KATHMANDU, Nepal — When the dense pillar of smoke from cremations by the Bagmati River was thinning late last week, the bodies were all coming from Gongabu, a common stopover for Nepali migrant workers headed overseas, and they were all of young men.

Hindu custom dictates that funeral pyres should be lighted by the oldest son of the deceased, but these men were too young to have sons, so they were burned by their brothers or fathers. Sukla Lal, a maize farmer, made a 14-hour journey by bus to retrieve the body of his 19-year-old son, who had been on his way to the Persian Gulf to work as a laborer.

“He wanted to live in the countryside, but he was compelled to leave by poverty,” Mr. Lal said, gazing ahead steadily as his son’s remains smoldered. “He told me, ‘You can live on your land, and I will come up with money, and we will have a happy family.’ ”

Weeks will pass before the authorities can give a complete accounting of who died in the April 25 earthquake, but it is already clear that Nepal cannot afford the losses. The countryside was largely stripped of its healthy young men even before the quake, as they migrated in great waves — 1,500 a day by some estimates — to work as laborers in India, Malaysia or one of the gulf nations, leaving many small communities populated only by elderly parents, women and children. Economists say that at some times of the year, one-quarter of Nepal’s population is working outside the country.
