Besi Beton
 
Besi beton merupakan besi yang telah digunakan untuk penulangan konstruksi beton atau yang lebih dikenal sebagai beton bertulang. Beton bertulang yang telah mengandung batang tulangan dan telah direncanakan berdasarkan anggapan bahwa bahan tersebut bekerja sama dalam memikul gaya-gaya. Beton bertulang juga bersifat unik dimana dua jenis bahan yaitu besi tulangan dan beton dipakai secara bersamaan.


Sejak tahun 1950 konstruksi konstruksi besi beton telah mulai digunakan sebagai elemen utama dalam pembangunan gedung tinggi. Pada awal abad ke-20 kebanyakan gedung tinggi di Amerika telah menggunakan Baja profil sebagai elemen struktur utamanya. Baru pada 1950-an konstruksi beton mulai ikut berperan dalam konstruksi gedung tinggi. Di Indonesia sendiri, besi beton lebih sering digunakan untuk pembangunan gedung, karena bahan ini telah lebih mudah didapat sehingga dirasakan lebih ekonomis jika dibandingkan dengan konstruksi lainnya. Besi beton atau beton bertulang boleh jadi juga merupakan bahan konstruksi yang paling penting karena digunakan dalam berbagai bentuk untuk hampir semua struktur baik besar maupun kecil seperti bangunan, jembatan, perkerasan jalan, bendungan, dinding penahan tanah, terowongan, jembatan yang telah melintasi lembah.

Saco-Indonesia.com - Penyakit bernama kista ovarium atau biasa disebut dengan kista ini menjadi salah satu sumber ketakutan wanita selain kanker rahim dan kanker payudara.

Seperti dilansir dari magforwomen.com, kista ovarium adalah kantung berisi cairan yang menetap di dalam atau pada permukaan ovarium. Jika folikel di dalam ovarium membesar lebih dari 2 cm maka akan menjadi kista. Sebagian besar kista ovarium tidak berbahaya dan akan menghilang dengan sendirinya. Namun kista ini akan menjadi hal yang parah dan dapat berkembang menjadi sel kanker apabila dipicu dengan pola hidup yang tidak sehat.

Gejala yang terjadi apabila terdapat kista di rahim Anda adalah menstruasi yang tidak teratur, nyeri pinggul, mual, perut membesar, dan nyeri di payudara. Apabila Anda mengalami hal tersebut maka jangan ragu untuk berkonsultasi dengan dokter. Jika kista yang Anda miliki belum terlalu berbahaya maka dapat dihilangkan dengan obat penghilang rasa sakit dan pil KB yang tentu saja telah disarankan dokter. Namun apabila telah parah dan mengganggu aktivitas Anda, maka dapat dioperasi.

Kista yang terlambat untuk dideteksi dapat berkembang menjadi kanker yang berbahaya. Oleh karena itu rajin-rajinlah untuk berkonsultasi dengan dokter dan memeriksakan kesehatan reproduksi Anda.

Peminat Sekolah Sepakbola (SSB) Bekasi United (BU) begitu besar sejak berada di manajemen baru. Banyak calon siswa BU menyatakan ingin bergabung ke SSB di bawah manajemen Radar Bekasi dan GoBekasi.com ini. Namun, pada tiga bulan ini, manajemen BU masih menutup pintu untuk siswa baru. ''Terima kasih kepada calon siswa atau orangtua yang ingin bergabung di SSB BU. Namun, kami belum membuka pendaftaran siswa baru pada tahap reorganisasi ini,'' kata Ketua Umum Bekasi United, M Fajar, kemarin. BU memilih untuk berkonsentrasi terlebih dulu merapikan sistem administrasi, pola pembinaan terbaik, dan target jangka menengah. Jika semuanya sudah rapi dan menemukan sistem pembinaan berkarakter untuk siswa BU, baru kami membukakan pintu untuk siswa baru. ''Sejak awal tujuan kami jelas. Kami tidak perlu siswa banyak. Kami hanya ingin siswa-siswa BU mendapat pendidikan sepakbola yang benar dan baik,'' kata Fajar. Seperti apa pendidikan sepakbola yang baik dan benar itu? Itu yang terus dipetakan manajemen baru. Namun yang pasti, Bekasi United terus membenahi administrasi, belajar ke berbagai SSB yang sudah lebih dulu profesional, dan tentu saja menemukan pelatih-pelatih yang memahami betul pendidikan SSB. Saat ini saja, manajemen BU lebih memilih berkonsentrasi pada 30 siswa yang sudah lebih dulu masuk. Tahun ini, para siswa terpilih akan diajak keliling ke berbagai SSB di Jawa Barat dan Jawa Timur untuk melakukan serangkaian study tour. ''Mereka akan ikut serta berlatih di SSB yang akan kami singgahi. Minimal tiga hari study tour ini agar siswa menemukan spirit baru sesungguhnya sepakbola. Harapan kami, siswa yang bergabung di SSB Bekasi United paham betul kata totalitas, integritas, dan profesionalisme dalam dunia sepakbola,'' kata M Fajar.

Rangkaian kegiatan yang dijalani oleh Nabi Muhammad SAW ketika menunaikan ritual haji menjadi contoh bagi para sahabat dalam menjalankan ibadah wajib tersebut. Meskipun Nabi hanya melakukan umrah sebanyak empat kali dan haji hanya sekali, rangkaian manasik haji yang beliau contohkan memiliki makna yang sangat substansial.

Jamaah haji dan umrah yang tidak memahami makna filosofis dan nilai-nilai agung yang terkandung dalam ritual haji tidak menutup kemungkinan akan merasakan kehampaan dalam ibadahnya. Sebaliknya, mereka yang mampu menangkap makna dan nilai-nilai tersebut akan semakin bersemangat dan khusyuk dalam melaksanakannya.

Berbahagialah mereka yang telah tebersit keinginan di dalam hatinya untuk menunaikan ibadah haji. Keinginan untuk pergi haji adalah anugerah sekaligus hidayah dari Allah SWT agar kita selamat dari jurang kesesatan dan kegelapan hidup.

Banyak umat Islam zaman sekarang yang merasakan kehidupannya kosong dan tak bermakna. Hari-hari dalam kehidupan mereka seakan hanya pengulangan dari hari sebelumnya. Tanpa mereka sadari, salah satu ajaran dalam agama mereka yaitu ibadah haji dapat mengantarkan mereka pada sebuah pengalaman yang akan membebaskan diri dari kehidupan semacam itu.

Perjalanan haji sangat bertolak belakang dengan perjalanan hidup yang tanpa tujuan. Dengan menunaikan ibadah tersebut kita akan dapat melepaskan diri dari jaring- jaring hawa nafsu dan membuka jalan yang luas menuju ridha Allah SWT.

Jika telah tebersit keinginan dalam hati untuk menunaikan ibadah haji, itu artinya kita telah bersedia meninggalkan sanak keluarga untuk berjumpa dengan Allah. Hati yang selalu mengajak untuk menunaikan ibadah haji adalah pertanda bahwa Allah SWT sedang mengundang kita ke sebuah ‘jamuan’ yang diadakan setiap tahun. Dalam jamuan itu, kasih sayang dan ampunan akan disuguhkan kepada seluruh tamu-Nya.

Sebaliknya, mereka yang tidak mendengar adanya panggilan hati untuk menunaikan ibadah haji patut bersedih. Sebab itu pertanda bahwa mereka telah berpaling dari Allah dan lebih memilih kehidupan yang fana.

Jika sedikit pun mereka tidak merasakan keinginan untuk berkunjung ke rumah Allah, maka itu artinya Allah SWT tidak mengundang mereka ke ‘jamuan’ yang diadakan-Nya.

WASHINGTON — The former deputy director of the C.I.A. asserts in a forthcoming book that Republicans, in their eagerness to politicize the killing of the American ambassador to Libya, repeatedly distorted the agency’s analysis of events. But he also argues that the C.I.A. should get out of the business of providing “talking points” for administration officials in national security events that quickly become partisan, as happened after the Benghazi attack in 2012.

The official, Michael J. Morell, dismisses the allegation that the United States military and C.I.A. officers “were ordered to stand down and not come to the rescue of their comrades,” and he says there is “no evidence” to support the charge that “there was a conspiracy between C.I.A. and the White House to spin the Benghazi story in a way that would protect the political interests of the president and Secretary Clinton,” referring to the secretary of state at the time, Hillary Rodham Clinton.

But he also concludes that the White House itself embellished some of the talking points provided by the Central Intelligence Agency and had blocked him from sending an internal study of agency conclusions to Congress.

“I finally did so without asking,” just before leaving government, he writes, and after the White House released internal emails to a committee investigating the State Department’s handling of the issue.

A lengthy congressional investigation remains underway, one that many Republicans hope to use against Mrs. Clinton in the 2016 election cycle.

In parts of the book, “The Great War of Our Time” (Twelve), Mr. Morell praises his C.I.A. colleagues for many successes in stopping terrorist attacks, but he is surprisingly critical of other C.I.A. failings — and those of the National Security Agency.

Soon after Mr. Morell retired in 2013 after 33 years in the agency, President Obama appointed him to a commission reviewing the actions of the National Security Agency after the disclosures of Edward J. Snowden, a former intelligence contractor who released classified documents about the government’s eavesdropping abilities. Mr. Morell writes that he was surprised by what he found.

“You would have thought that of all the government entities on the planet, the one least vulnerable to such grand theft would have been the N.S.A.,” he writes. “But it turned out that the N.S.A. had left itself vulnerable.”

He concludes that most Wall Street firms had better cybersecurity than the N.S.A. had when Mr. Snowden swept information from its systems in 2013. While he said he found himself “chagrined by how well the N.S.A. was doing” compared with the C.I.A. in stepping up its collection of data on intelligence targets, he also sensed that the N.S.A., which specializes in electronic spying, was operating without considering the implications of its methods.

“The N.S.A. had largely been collecting information because it could, not necessarily in all cases because it should,” he says.

The book is to be released next week.

Mr. Morell was a career analyst who rose through the ranks of the agency, and he ended up in the No. 2 post. He served as President George W. Bush’s personal intelligence briefer in the first months of his presidency — in those days, he could often be spotted at the Starbucks in Waco, Tex., catching up on his reading — and was with him in the schoolhouse in Florida on the morning of Sept. 11, 2001, when the Bush presidency changed in an instant.

Mr. Morell twice took over as acting C.I.A. director, first when Leon E. Panetta was appointed secretary of defense and then when retired Gen. David H. Petraeus resigned over an extramarital affair with his biographer, a relationship that included his handing her classified notes of his time as America’s best-known military commander.

Mr. Morell says he first learned of the affair from Mr. Petraeus only the night before he resigned, and just as the Benghazi events were turning into a political firestorm. While praising Mr. Petraeus, who had told his deputy “I am very lucky” to run the C.I.A., Mr. Morell writes that “the organization did not feel the same way about him.” The former general “created the impression through the tone of his voice and his body language that he did not want people to disagree with him (which was not true in my own interaction with him),” he says.

But it is his account of the Benghazi attacks — and how the C.I.A. was drawn into the debate over whether the Obama White House deliberately distorted its account of the death of Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens — that is bound to attract attention, at least partly because of its relevance to the coming presidential election. The initial assessments that the C.I.A. gave to the White House said demonstrations had preceded the attack. By the time analysts reversed their opinion, Susan E. Rice, now the national security adviser, had made a series of statements on Sunday talk shows describing the initial assessment. The controversy and other comments Ms. Rice made derailed Mr. Obama’s plan to appoint her as secretary of state.

The experience prompted Mr. Morell to write that the C.I.A. should stay out of the business of preparing talking points — especially on issues that are being seized upon for “political purposes.” He is critical of the State Department for not beefing up security in Libya for its diplomats, as the C.I.A., he said, did for its employees.

But he concludes that the assault in which the ambassador was killed took place “with little or no advance planning” and “was not well organized.” He says the attackers “did not appear to be looking for Americans to harm. They appeared intent on looting and conducting some vandalism,” setting fires that killed Mr. Stevens and a security official, Sean Smith.

Mr. Morell paints a picture of an agency that was struggling, largely unsuccessfully, to understand dynamics in the Middle East and North Africa when the Arab Spring broke out in late 2011 in Tunisia. The agency’s analysts failed to see the forces of revolution coming — and then failed again, he writes, when they told Mr. Obama that the uprisings would undercut Al Qaeda by showing there was a democratic pathway to change.

“There is no good explanation for our not being able to see the pressures growing to dangerous levels across the region,” he writes. The agency had again relied too heavily “on a handful of strong leaders in the countries of concern to help us understand what was going on in the Arab street,” he says, and those leaders themselves were clueless.

Moreover, an agency that has always overvalued secretly gathered intelligence and undervalued “open source” material “was not doing enough to mine the wealth of information available through social media,” he writes. “We thought and told policy makers that this outburst of popular revolt would damage Al Qaeda by undermining the group’s narrative,” he writes.

Instead, weak governments in Egypt, and the absence of governance from Libya to Yemen, were “a boon to Islamic extremists across both the Middle East and North Africa.”

Mr. Morell is gentle about most of the politicians he dealt with — he expresses admiration for both Mr. Bush and Mr. Obama, though he accuses former Vice President Dick Cheney of deliberately implying a connection between Al Qaeda and Iraq that the C.I.A. had concluded probably did not exist. But when it comes to the events leading up to the Bush administration’s decision to go to war in Iraq, he is critical of his own agency.

Mr. Morell concludes that the Bush White House did not have to twist intelligence on Saddam Hussein’s alleged effort to rekindle the country’s work on weapons of mass destruction.

“The view that hard-liners in the Bush administration forced the intelligence community into its position on W.M.D. is just flat wrong,” he writes. “No one pushed. The analysts were already there and they had been there for years, long before Bush came to office.”

Over the last five years or so, it seemed there was little that Dean G. Skelos, the majority leader of the New York Senate, would not do for his son.

He pressed a powerful real estate executive to provide commissions to his son, a 32-year-old title insurance salesman, according to a federal criminal complaint. He helped get him a job at an environmental company and employed his influence to help the company get government work. He used his office to push natural gas drilling regulations that would have increased his son’s commissions.

He even tried to direct part of a $5.4 billion state budget windfall to fund government contracts that the company was seeking. And when the company was close to securing a storm-water contract from Nassau County, the senator, through an intermediary, pressured the company to pay his son more — or risk having the senator subvert the bid.

The criminal complaint, unsealed on Monday, lays out corruption charges against Senator Skelos and his son, Adam B. Skelos, the latest scandal to seize Albany, and potentially alter its power structure.

The repeated and diverse efforts by Senator Skelos, a Long Island Republican, to use what prosecutors said was his political influence to find work, or at least income, for his son could send both men to federal prison. If they are convicted of all six charges against them, they face up to 20 years in prison for each of four of the six counts and up to 10 years for the remaining two.

Senator Kenneth P. LaValle, of Long Island, who serves as chairman of the Republican conference, emerged from a closed-door meeting Monday night to say that conference members agreed that Mr. Skelos should be benefited the “presumption of innocence,” and would stay in his leadership role.

“The leader has indicated he would like to remain as leader,” said Mr. LaValle, “and he has the support of the conference.” The case against Mr. Skelos and his son grew out of a broader inquiry into political corruption by the United States attorney for the Southern District of New York, Preet Bharara, that has already changed the face of the state capital. It is based in part, according to the six-count complaint, on conversations secretly recorded by one of two cooperating witnesses, and wiretaps on the cellphones of the senator and his son. Those recordings revealed that both men were concerned about electronic surveillance, and illustrated the son’s unsuccessful efforts to thwart it.

Adam Skelos took to using a “burner” phone, the complaint says, and told his father he wanted them to speak through a FaceTime video call in an apparent effort to avoid detection. They also used coded language at times.

At one point, Adam Skelos was recorded telling a Senate staff member of his frustration in not being able to speak openly to his father on the phone, noting that he could not “just send smoke signals or a little pigeon” carrying a message.

The 43-page complaint, sworn out by Paul M. Takla, a special agent for the Federal Bureau of Investigation, outlines a five-year scheme to “monetize” the senator’s official position; it also lays bare the extent to which a father sought to use his position to help his son.

The charges accuse the two men of extorting payments through a real estate developer, Glenwood Management, based on Long Island, and the environmental company, AbTech Industries, in Scottsdale, Ariz., with the expectation that the money paid to Adam Skelos — nearly $220,000 in total — would influence his father’s actions.

Glenwood, one of the state’s most prolific campaign donors, had ties to AbTech through investments in the environmental firm’s parent company by Glenwood’s founding family and a senior executive.

The accusations in the complaint portray Senator Skelos as a man who, when it came to his son, was not shy about twisting arms, even in situations that might give other arm-twisters pause.

Seeking to help his son, Senator Skelos turned to the executive at Glenwood, which develops rental apartments in New York City and has much at stake when it comes to real estate legislation in Albany. The senator urged him to direct business to his son, who sold title insurance.

After much prodding, the executive, Charles C. Dorego, engineered a $20,000 payment to Adam Skelos from a title insurance company even though he did no work for the money. But far more lucrative was a consultant position that Mr. Dorego arranged for Adam Skelos at AbTech, which seeks government contracts to treat storm water. (Mr. Dorego is not identified by name in the complaint, but referred to only as CW-1, for Cooperating Witness 1.)

Senator Skelos appeared to take an active interest in his son’s new line of work. Adam Skelos sent him several drafts of his consulting agreement with AbTech, the complaint says, as well as the final deal that was struck.

“Mazel tov,” his father replied.

Senator Skelos sent relevant news articles to his son, including one about a sewage leak near Albany. When AbTech wanted to seek government contracts after Hurricane Sandy, the senator got on a conference call with his son and an AbTech executive, Bjornulf White, and offered advice. (Like Mr. Dorego, Mr. White is not named in the complaint, but referred to as CW-2.)

The assistance paid off: With the senator’s help, AbTech secured a contract worth up to $12 million from Nassau County, a big break for a struggling small business.

But the money was slow to materialize. The senator expressed impatience with county officials.

Adam Skelos, in a phone call with Mr. White in late December, suggested that his father would seek to punish the county. “I tell you this, the state is not going to do a [expletive] thing for the county,” he said.

Three days later, Senator Skelos pressed his case with the Nassau County executive, Edward P. Mangano, a fellow Republican. “Somebody feels like they’re just getting jerked around the last two years,” the senator said, referring to his son in what the complaint described as “coded language.”

The next day, the senator pursued the matter, as he and Mr. Mangano attended a wake for a slain New York City police officer. Senator Skelos then reassured his son, who called him while he was still at the wake. “All claims that are in will be taken care of,” the senator said.

AbTech’s fortunes appeared to weigh on his son. At one point in January, Adam Skelos told his father that if the company did not succeed, he would “lose the ability to pay for things.”

Making matters worse, in recent months, Senator Skelos and his son appeared to grow wary about who was watching them. In addition to making calls on the burner phone, Adam Skelos said he used the FaceTime video calling “because that doesn’t show up on the phone bill,” as he told Mr. White.

In late February, Adam Skelos arranged a pair of meetings between Mr. White and state senators; AbTech needed to win state legislation that would allow its contract to move beyond its initial stages. But Senator Skelos deemed the plan too risky and caused one of the meetings to be canceled.

In another recorded call, Adam Skelos, promising to be “very, very vague” on the phone, urged his father to allow the meeting. The senator offered a warning. “Right now we are in dangerous times, Adam,” he told him.

A month later, in another phone call that was recorded by the authorities, Adam Skelos complained that his father could not give him “real advice” about AbTech while the two men were speaking over the telephone.

“You can’t talk normally,” he told his father, “because it’s like [expletive] Preet Bharara is listening to every [expletive] phone call. It’s just [expletive] frustrating.”

“It is,” his father agreed.

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.”
