1- Zakat Mata Uang
Jika harta seseorang senilai 85 gram emas atau 595 gram perak, dengan hitungan nilai pada saat dia mengeluarkan zakat sesuai dengan nilai mata uang negara orang yang membayar zakat, maka dia keluarkan zakatnya sebanyak 2½ %, setelah setiap putaran tahun hijriyah dan harta sampai senisab.
Suatu contoh: Seseorang mempunyai harta seba-nyak Rp.10.000.000,-, setelah satu tahun putaran, maka dia harus mengeluarkan zakat sebagai berikut:
Rp.10.000.000,-
x
25
1000
=
Rp.250.000,-
2- Zakat Utang Piutang
Jika seseorang memberi pinjaman kepada orang lain dan masa pinjaman berlalu beberapa waktu, maka menurut pendapat ulama yang paling mudah*1, orang yang memberi pinjaman harus mengeluarkan zakat piutang dalam jangka setahun saja walaupun hutang tersebut berlalu bertahun-tahun.
Suatu contoh Aiman memberi pinjaman uang ke- pada seseorang yang bernama Ahmad sebanyak Rp. 15.000.000,- dan pinjaman tersebut bertahan pada Ahmad selama tiga tahun, maka siapa yang wajib mengeluarkan zakat dan berapa jumlah zakat yang harus dibayar?
Yang berkewajiban mengeluarkan zakat adalah Aiman karena dia pemilik harta tersebut dan dia wajib mengeluarkan zakat dalam jangka setahun saja sebesar:
Rp.15.000.000,-
x
25
1000
x
1 tahun = Rp.375.000,-
*1 Demikian itu adalah pendapat Imam Malik baik utang yang diharapkan pengembaliannya atau tidak dengan syarat tidak diakhirkan penyerahan-nya tersendiri dari zakat. Jika tidak, maka wajib mengeluarkan zakat tiap tahun yang telah berlalu dari masa hutang. Sebagaimana pendapat Ibnu Qasim Al-Maliki bahwa yang lebih hati-hati adalah mengeluarkan zakat piutang setiap tahun sepanjang masa piutang seperti pendapat madzhab Hambali.
3- Zakat Profesi
Jika seorang muslim memperoleh pendapatan dari hasil usaha atau profesi tertentu, maka dia boleh menge-luarkan zakatnya langsung 2½ % pada saat penerimaan setelah dipotong kebutuhan bulanannya atau menunggu putaran satu tahun dan dikeluarkan zakatnya bersama dengan harta benda lain yang wajib dizakati senilai 2½ %.
Suatu contoh: Seseorang memiliki harta yang diza-kati setiap tahun di awal bulan Muharram, jika dia mene-rima gaji pada bulan Ramadhan, maka dia boleh memilih ketentuan di bawah ini:
Mengeluarkan zakat profesi dari gaji bulan Rama-dhan tersendiri pada bulan itu *2 atau,
Ditunda pembayaran zakat profesi digabung dengan harta yang lain dan dikeluarkan secara bersama pada bulan Muharram.
Secara kaidah bahwa harta itu wajib dizakati sekali dalam setahun.
*2 Termasuk harta profesi antara lain gaji atau pendapatan dari suatu profesi atau keahlian, boleh dikeluarkan zakatnya tanpa menunggu putaran haul (tahun), tetapi tidak boleh dizakati dua kali dalam setahun.
4- Zakat Saham dan Kertas Berharga
Saham dan kertas berharga*3 bila telah sampai seni-sab wajib dikeluarkan zakatnya bersama keuntungannya, seperti nisab mata uang dan kadar zakat sebesar 2½ %.
Suatu contoh: Seseorang memiliki saham, pada saat mau mengeluarkan zakatnya saham tersebut menurut harga pasar senilai Rp.50.000.000,- dan tiap tahun mendapat-kan laba sebesar Rp.5.000.000,- sehingga jumlah harta keseluruhan sebesar Rp.50.000.000,- + Rp.5.000.000,- = Rp.55.000.000,-.
Zakatnya: Rp.55.000.000,-
x
25
1000
=
Rp.1.375.000,-
*3 Kertas berharga biasanya tercampur dengan nilai yang haram yaitu riba, tetap wajib dikeluarkan zakatnya, karena dibolehkan menyalurkan hasil yang haram untuk kepentingan umum kaum muslimin
5- Zakat Perhiasan Wanita
Pendapat tengah-tengah di antara pendapat para ulama adalah pendapat yang diriwayatkan dari Anas bin Malik radhiallaahu anhu bahwa beliau berfatwa tentang wajibnya zakat perhiasan sekali dalam seumur dan bukan setiap putaran haul (tahun)*4 , tetapi jika membeli perhiasan lain maka dia harus mengeluarkan zakat perhiasan yang baru dibeli itu dengan syarat barang tersebut hanya untuk perhiasan*5. Adapun peralatan dan wadah yang terbuat dari emas bila telah sampai senisab, maka harus dikeluarkan zakatnya.
Suatu contoh: Seorang wanita memiliki perhiasan emas seberat 100 gram yang dipakai untuk perhiasan, bagaimana mengeluarkan zakatnya?
Jawab: Wajib bagi wanita mengeluarkan zakat per-hiasan tersebut sekali dalam seumur.
100 x 2½
=
25
100
gr. atau berupa uang senilai 2½ gr.
Jika dia membeli lagi emas untuk perhiasan sebe-rat 100 gram, maka dia harus mengeluarkan zakatnya sebesar 2½ gram sekali saja seumur hidup.
*4 Pendapat ini terdapat dalam kitab Al-Muhalla 6/78 dan Sunan Kubra 4/ 138
*5 Kadar zakat yang wajib dikeluarkan baik emas maupun perak sebesar 2½ %.
6- Zakat Apartemen, Perkantoran dan Tanah Persewaan
(A). Barangsiapa yang memiliki apartemen, ruko atau tanah yang disewakan, maka dia wajib mengeluar-kan zakat dari hasil penyewaan sebesar 2½ %, bila telah sampai senisab.
Suatu contoh: Seseorang memiliki ruko untuk disewakan tahunan dengan nilai sewa sebesar Rp.20.000.000,- bagaimana cara mengeluarkan zakatnya?
Jawab: Kadar zakatnya 2½%
Rp.20.000.000,-
x
25
1000
=
Rp.500.000,-
Catatan: Jika gedung tersebut belum ada yang menyewa maka belum ada kewajiban mengeluarkan zakat.
(B). Jika seseorang menjual gedung tersebut, ma-ka dia wajib mengeluarkan zakat dari hasil penjualan sebesar 2½ %.
Suatu contoh: Seseorang memiliki tanah kosong kemudian dijual dan laku seharga Rp.100.000.000,- dan se-belum terjual tanah tersebut berada di bawah kepemilikan-nya selama tiga tahun tanpa mendapatkan keuntungan karena tidak ada yang menyewa. Maka dia wajib menge-luarkan zakat dari hasil penjualan saja dengan perincian:
Rp.100.000.000,-
x
25
1000
=
Rp.2.500.000,-
Dan dikeluarkan cukup setahun itu saja sesuai de-ngan pendapat yang paling mudah.*6
Kaidah: Jika gedung atau tanah tersebut diguna-kan untuk keperluan pribadi tidak wajib dizakati.
*6 Demikian itu adalah pendapat dari madzhab Malikiyah, alasan mereka bahwa harta persewaan sebelum terjual tidak berkembang sehingga tidak harus dizakati. Lihat Syarh Kabir dan Hasyiyah Dasuqi 1/457. Dan untuk lebih hati-hati sebaiknya mengeluarkan zakatnya setiap tahun bila jelas tanah tersebut d iproyeksikan untuk niaga.
7- Zakat Perdagangan
Seorang pedagang hendaknya menghitung jumlah nilai barang dagangan dengan harga asli lalu digabung-kan dengan keuntungan bersih setelah dipotong piutang. Kadar zakatnya 2½ %.*7
Suatu contoh: Seorang pedagang menjumlah barang dagangan di akhir tahun dengan jumlah total Rp. 200.000.000,- dan laba bersih sebesar Rp.50.000.000,- sementara dia mempunyai hutang sebesar Rp.100.000.000,-.
Modal dikurangi hutang: Rp.200.000.000,- – Rp. 100.000.000,- = Rp.100.000.000,-
Jumlah harta zakat: Rp.100.000.000,- + Rp. 50.000.000,- = Rp.150.000.000,-
Zakatnya: Rp.150.000.000,-
x
25
1000
=
Rp.3.750.000,-
*7 Modal tetap tidak wajib dizakati seperti gedung, perkakas dan alat opera-sional perdagangan
8- Zakat Tanaman
Jika biji-bijian atau buah-buahan*8 telah sampai senisab yaitu lima wasak atau seberat + 670 kg, maka wajib dikeluarkan zakatnya 10% bila disiram dengan air hujan dan 5% jika menggunakan alat atau memindah air dari tempat lain dengan kendaraan atau yang lainnya.
Suatu contoh: Seorang petani memetik hasil panen sebanyak lima ton gandum dan dua ton korma, maka berapa zakat yang harus dikeluarkan jika dia mengguna-kan alat penyiram tanaman?
Zakat gandum: 5000
x
5
100
=
250 kg.
Zakat korma: 2000
x
5
100
=
100 kg.
*8 Hasil-hasil pertanian selain biji-bijian dianggap sebagai buah-buahan, seperti sayur mayur segar dan buahan-buahan masih dalam kelompok barang-barang niaga yang kadar zakatnya 2½ %. Meskipun Madzhab Hanafi berpendapat wajib mengeluarkan zakat setiap tanaman yang ditumbuhkan bumi sekadar 5% atau 10% sebagaimana penjelasan yang telah lalu.
9- Zakat Peternakan
Jika seseorang memiliki lima onta, maka ia wajib mengeluarkan zakat seekor kambing dan jika memiliki tiga puluh sapi, maka dia harus mengeluarkan tabi’i (sapi yang berumur setahun). Jika memiliki kambing empat puluh, maka dia wajib mengeluarkan zakat seekor kambing. Apabila jumlah hewan ternak lebih dari hitung-an di atas, maka cara mengeluarkan zakat seperti pada tabel di bawah ini:
Selain hewan yang tersebut di atas masuk dalam kelompok barang niaga bila diproyeksikan sebagai barang perdagangan.

10- Zakat Madu Tawon
Jika hasil madu mencapai nisab seberat 670 kg, maka harus dikeluarkan zakatnya sebesar 10 % dari be-rat bersih madu setelah dipotong biaya produksi.
Suatu contoh: Zakat 1000 kg madu adalah:
1000 kg
x

11- Zakat Barang Tambang
Hasil tambang dan minyak serta gas bumi hasilnya harus disalurkan ke Baitul Mal untuk kepentingan umum dan kebutuhan ummat.
Jika ada seseorang atau perusahaan diberi kesem-patan menambang dan mengolah barang tambang terse-but, maka dia harus mengeluarkan zakat sebesar 2½ % dari penghasilan yang telah dikelola. Termasuk kelom-pok barang tambang yaitu seluruh bahan bangunan seperti batu atau pasir, juga harus dikeluarkan zakatnya sebesar 2½ % dari hasil yang telah diperoleh.*9
*9 Zakat hasil tambang tidak disyaratkan putaran haul (tahun), wajib menge-luarkan zakat pada saat barang tambang telah selesai proses pengolahan.
12- Zakat Hasil Laut dan Perikanan
Jika seorang nelayan atau perusahaan pengolah hasil laut menangkap ikan kemudian hasil tersebut dijual, maka dia wajib mengeluarkan zakat seperti zakat niaga yaitu 2½% (*10) demikian itu bila hasilnya telah sampai senisab seperti nisabnya mata uang.
Suatu contoh: Suatu perusahaan penangkap ikan menghasilkan satu ton ikan, kemudian dijual kepada konsumen seharga Rp.4.000.00,-, berapa zakat yang harus dibayar.*11
Zakatnya: Rp.4.000.000,-
x

Rp.100.000,-
*10 Pendapat ini diriwayatkan dari Imam Ahmad seperti yang telah disebut-kan dalam kitab Al-Mughni 3/28.
*11 Artinya nilai jual ikan seharga nisabnya mata uang yaitu 85 gr emas
13- Zakat Fitrah
A. Setiap muslim wajib membayar zakat fitrah setelah matahari terbenam akhir bulan Ramadhan dan lebih utama jika dibayarkan sebelum keluar shalat Idul Fitri dan boleh dibayarkan dua hari sebelum hari raya *12 , demi menjaga kemaslahatan orang fakir. Dan haram mengakhirkan pembayaran zakat fitrah hingga habis shalat dan barangsiapa melakukan perbuatan tersebut, maka harus menggantinya.*13
B. Seorang muslim wajib membayar zakat untuk dirinya dan orang-orang yang menjadi tanggung jawab-nya seperti isterinya, anaknya, dan pembantunya yang muslim. Akan tetapi boleh bagi seorang isteri atau anak atau pembantu membayar zakat sendiri.
C. Kadar zakat fitrah yang harus dibayar*14 adalah satu sha’ dari makanan pokok negara setempat, dan satu sha’ untuk ukuran sekarang kira-kira 2,176 kg (keten-tuan ini sesuai makanan pokok gandum).
Dan kita bisa menggunakan tangan untuk menjadi takaran dengan cara kita penuhi kedua telapak tangan sebanyak empat kali. Karena satu mud sama dengan genggaman dua telapak tangan orang dewasa dan satu sha’ sama dengan empat mud.
Contoh: Seseorang mempunyai satu isteri dan empat orang anak serta satu pembantu muslim, berapa dia harus membayar zakat fitrah untuk mereka?
Dengan ukuran sha’ dia harus membayar 7 x 1 sha’ = 7 sha’
Dengan takaran atau timbangan sekarang berupa gandum: 7 x 2,176 kg = 15,232 kg atau lima belas kilo dua ratus tiga puluh dua gram.
Dan dengan kita meraup gandum dengan dua tela-pak tangan: 7 x 4 = 28 kali raupan dari makanan pokok baik berupa korma, gandum, anggur kering, susu ke-ring, jagung atau beras.
D. Dianjurkan mengeluarkan zakat dengan makanan*15 , Imam Abu Hanifah membolehkan membayar dengan uang dan ini pendapat yang lebih mudah terlebih bagi lingkungan industri.*16
Kadar nilai zakat disesuaikan dengan harga makan-an pokok masing-masing negara, jika seseorang ingin membayar zakat dengan korma sebanyak dua puluh kilo, maka hendaknya dia harus menanyakan harga kor-ma per kilo untuk ukuran korma sedang, lalu dihitung dengan mata uang setempat.
*12 Menurut madzhab Hambali boleh mengeluarkan zakat setelah pertengah-an bulan Ramadhan, pendapat ini lebih mempermudah khususnya bagi negara yang menangani langsung pembayaran zakat fitrah, atau jika yang menangani itu yayasan-yayasan sosial, sehingga mempermudah mereka dalam pengumpulan dan pembagiannya pada hari Ied.
*13 Lihat Nailul Authar, 4/195. Fiqhuz Zakah: 1/155.
*14 Dalam zakat fitrah tidak mengenal nisab, di saat ada kelebihan dari kebutuhan makanan pada malam hari raya untuk dirinya dan keluarga-nya, maka seseorang wajib membayar zakat fitrah.
*15 Para ulama madzhab tiga (Imam Malik, Syafi’i dan Ahmad) tidak membo-lehkan mengeluarkan zakat fitrah dengan uang.
*16 Fiqhuz Zakah , 1/949. Penulis pernah membuat semacam ide yang disampaikan lewat mimbar pada tahun 1404 H. hendaknya zakat fitrah dikelola oleh pemerintah atau Lembaga Islam kemudian disalurkan kepada yang berhak dan yang membutuhkan baik di dalam maupun luar negeri khususnya negara-negara yang terkena krisis seperti negara Afrika atau Asia yang banyak menderita kelaparan. Apalagi kristenisasi sangat gencar dengan berkedok bantuan sosial berupa makanan atau obat-obatan untuk bantuan kelaparan dan bencana alam dimanfaatkan untuk pemurtadan sehingga banyak di antara kaum muslimin yang keluar dari Islam hanya karena sesuap nasi seperti yang terjadi di Indonesia.
Jika zakat fitrah tersebut bisa dikumpulkan setelah pertengahan bulan Ramadhan, maka sangat mungkin zakat fitrah tersebut disalurkan kepada yang berhak pada waktu itu juga. Dengan demikian pada saat hari raya orang-orang kelaparan bisa merasa kenyang dan kecukupan, bila tidak apa mungkin seseorang dipaksa bergembira di hari raya sementara kela-paran melilitnya.
 
 
PERHITUNGAN ZAKAT MENURUT ISLAM

saco-indonesia.com, Polda Metro Jaya akan menggelar simulasi pengamanan Pemilu di depan kantor Badan Pengawasan Pemilu (Bawaslu), Jalan MH. Thamrin, Jakarta Pusat, Jumat (7/2) esok. Simulasi juga akan digelar mulai pukul 08.00 WIB hingga sekitar pukul 11.00 WIB.

Direktur Lalu Lintas Polda Metro Jaya Kombes R. Nurhadi Yuwono juga menegaskan dengan digelarnya simulasi tersebut tidak serta merta polisi akan melakukan penutupan jalan di depan kantor Bawaslu.

"Simulasi pengamanan Pemilu bukan penutupan," ujar Nurhadi di Mapolda Metro Jaya, Kamis (6/1).

Simulasi tersebut, lanjut Nurhadi, juga merupakan gladi di lapangan. "Di sana nantinya juga akan dibuat skenario cerita bahwa ada massa pengunjuk rasa yang protes terhadap keputusan Bawaslu," terang Nurhadi.

Nurhadi juga menuturkan pihaknya juga telah menyiapkan rekayasa lalu lintas apabila nantinya massa yang berunjuk rasa sudah mulai anarkis.

"Jika massa sudah mulai anarkis, kita juga akan lakukan contra flow tepat di depan Hotel Nikko kemudian dialihkan ke jalur sebelahnya lalu lurus sampai setelah depan kantor Bawaslu," terangnya.

Alternatif lain, lanjut Nurhadi, jika telah terjadi penumpukan kendaraan di ruas jalan MH. Thamrin, Jakarta Pusat, maka polisi lalu lintas juga akan mengurai sejumlah kendaraan ke beberapa jalan alternatif.

"Sementara kita urai saja dan kita kurangi volume kendaraannya," tambah Nurhadi.

Rekayasa arus lalu lintas tersebut dibuat untuk dapat menjaga depan kantor Bawaslu tetap steril. "Jika massa anarkis, depan Bawaslu harus clear. Jangan sampai ada mobil atau motor yang lewat disitu. Soalnya nanti kan ada mobil water canon seperti demo-demo biasa gitu," pungkasnya.

Rekayasa contra flow besok akan dimulai pukul 10.00 WIB hingga pukul 10.30 WIB.

BESOK POLISI AKAN GELAR SIMULASI PEMILU

 

            Pada awal kehidaupan manusia, sampah belum menjadi masalah, tetapi dangan bertambahnya penduduk di mana ruang tetap, semakin hari maslahnya semakin besar. Hal ini jelas bila kita melihat moderenissasi kehidupan, perkembangan teknologi, sehingga meningkatkan aktivitas manusia. Sehubungan dengaan kegiatan manusia, maka permasalahan sampah akan berkaitan baik dari segi social ekonomi maupun budaya.
            Kesehatan seorang maupun masyarakat merupakan masalah social yang selalu berkaitan antara komponen-komponen yang ada dalam masyarakat. Sampah bila dapat diamankan tidak menjadi potensi yang berpengaruh terhadap lingkungan. Namun demikian sebagaimana telah diutarakan di atas, bahwa sampah yang dikelola tidak berada pada tempat yang menjamin keamanan lingkungan, sehingga mempunyai dampak terhadap kesehatan lingkungan. Sampah yang tidak dikelola dengan baik ini akan menjadi bermacam-macam fungsinya, Antara lain :
1.      Sebagai sarana penularana penyakit. Hal ini timbbul karena sampah basah (garbage) dapat menjadi tempat bersarangnya  dan berkembangbiaknya dari bermacam-macam Vektor penularan penyakit. Vektor yang dimaksud adalah: lalat, Kecoak, nyamuk, dan tikus.
·         Kebiasaan lalat: Lalat biasa hidup di tempat-tempat yang kotor dan tertarik akan bau yang busuk. Benda-benda yang ber bau busuk juga merupakan makanan lalat. Sampah, terutama sampah basah, cepat berbau busuk, sehingga merupakan tempat berkembangbiak dan tempat makanan lalat.
·         Kebiasaan kecoak: Kecoak senang tinggal di tempat-tempat yang lembab, berbau, dan keadaan gelap. Tumpukan sampah yang lembab, berbau, dan terdapat banyak celah-celah yang gelap merupakan tempat berkembang biaknya kecoak. Lalat  dan kecoak merupakan vector penularan penyakit saluran pencernaan (perut) seperti: diseentri, basiller, disentri amoeba, cholera, typhus abdominalis, diare karena bakteri, dsb.
·         Kebiasaan nyamuk: Nyamuk khususnya nyamuk aedes dan culex suka bersarang pada genangan air. Sampah dari barang- barang seperti kaleng, kantong plastic, pecahan gelas/botol menjadi tempat genagan air jika hujan turun, tempat ini sangat disenangi nyamuk aedes sebagai tempat ber kembangnya. Nyamuk merupakan vector penularan penyakit demam berdarah, kaki gajah, dan malaria.
·         Kebiasaan tikus: Tikus umumnya suka bersarang pada tempat yang banyak makanan, tempat-tempat yag lembab, dan celah-celaj yang gelap sebagai tempat persembunyiannya. Sampah basah masih banyak mengandung sisa makanan, agak lembab, dan terdapat celah-celah untuk bersembunyi edari ancama musuh tikus. Oleh karenanya tikus suka bersarang di tempat pembuangan sampah. Tikus merupakan vector penularan pes.
2.      Di samping penularan penyakit infeksi saluran pencernaan, di dalam tumpukan sampah basah kadang-kadang mengandung telur cacing. Apabila sampah basah ini diberikan untuk pakan ternak seperti babi tanpa dimasak terlebih dahulu, maka babi tersebut dapat terjangkit penyakit cacingan misalnya Trichinosis, penyababnya adalah cacing Trichinella spiralis. Jika daging babi tersebut tidak sempurna memasaknya kemudian dikonsumsi oleh manusia, maka manusia pun dapat terjangkit penyakit cacing Trichinella.
3.      Dari sampah juga juga dapat menjadi penyabab penyakit lain seperti penyakit kulit dan jamur.
4.      Kemudian selain itu, dampak dari pembuangan sampah yang tidak memenuhi syarat keamanan lingkungan dan kesehatan, misalnya membuang sampah secara sembarangan akan mengakibatkan pencemaran lingkungan meliputi pencemaran tanah, air, dan udara. Sampah-sampah yang dibuang sebagian besar merupakan sampah organic. Bahan-bahan organic ini mengalami pembusukan secara biologis oleh jasad-jasad renik/mikroba yang bersifat aerobic. Selain itu juga terjadi proses pembusukan sampah organic berlangsung secara anaerobic yang berlangsung lama dan akhirnya akan dapat menghasilkan humus yang sangat berguna untuk penyuburran tanah dan perbaikan kondisi tanah. Namun dampak negatifnya lebih banyak, di mana:
·         Sampah-sampah plastic, pecahan kaca, karet, dan bahan-bahan yang sukar membusuk akan mencemari tanah sehingga dalam waktu lama tidak dapat ditanami lagi (lahan kritis).
·         Hasil proses pembusukan sampah oleh jasad renik menghasilkan gas-gas seperti: CO2, H2S, CH4, dan NH3, maka udara tercemar oleh gas-gas tersebut dan menimbulkan bau yang tidak sedap. Disamping itu, jika ada sampah yang terbakar maka asap-asap yang mengepul ke udara mencemari udara kaena adanya gas CO2 danCO.
·         Air rembesan hasil dari proses pembusukan saampah akan mengalami perporasi yang mengandung bahan terlarut yang dapat berbahaya untuk kesehatan, dapat mencemari air tanah, serta badab-badan air yang berada dekat dengan tempat pembuangan akhir sampah apabila tidak dilakukan pengawasan yang baik.
      5. Hasil pembusukan sampah dapt juga menggangu keseimbangan ekosistem, terjadinya              &nb sp;              penyuburan pada badan-badan air karena menerima nutrien-nutrien hasil pembusukan sampah memungkinkan terjadinya ledakan populasi tumbuhan air seperti eceng gondok dan akan mengganggu biota lain.

JAKARTA, Saco-Indonesia.com - Anggota Dewan Pembina Partai Demokrat Amir Syamsuddin menegaskan bahwa bursa calon presiden melalui jalur konvensi hanya dibuka untuk tokoh publik yang berminat dan tentu saja kompeten. Jalur undangan tak akan dibuka karena dikhawatirkan bakal mengganggu tokoh publik yang berasal dari partai lain.

"Kita tidak akan mengundang. Silakan mereka yang berminat. Kalau kita mengundang ada kekhawatiran," kata Amir, di Gedung Parlemen, Jakarta, Selasa (4/6/2013).

Secara pribadi, kata Amir, dirinya enggan mengganggu konsentrasi tokoh publik yang memiliki elektabilitas tinggi dengan mengundang mengikuti konvensi, termasuk di antaranya tidak akan mengundang Gubernur DKI Jakarta Joko Widodo. Namun begitu, pintu lebar akan selalu terbuka untuk tokoh yang ingin berpartisipasi dalam konvensi capres tersebut.

"Jangan terkesan kita sengaja mengundang, mengganggu mereka, jangan. Tetapi kalau mereka berkeinginan berpartisipasi ya tidak apa-apa. Semua (tokoh) yang baik-baik itu silakan, jangan kita ganggu," ujarnya.

Bursa pencalonan presiden melalui konvensi Partai Demokrat terus digodok. Di dalam konvensi itu juga masih terdapat banyak kemungkinan, menyusul patokan mekanisme intinya yang belum juga dipastikan.

Wakil Ketua Umum Partai Demokrat Nurhayati Ali Assegaf sempat menjelaskan bahwa pihaknya masih membuka pintu lebar untuk menerima dan mengundang semua calon yang dianggap kompeten. Termasuk di antaranya adalah Gubernur DKI Jakarta Joko Widodo yang merupakan kader PDI Perjuangan.

Nurhayati juga menyampaikan bahwa konsep konvensi akan digelar semi terbuka. Pendaftaran dibuka bebas tetapi hanya untuk figur yang memenuhi syarat. Menurutnya, jalur konvensi calon presiden tidak mungkin dibuka gamblang karena dikhawatirkan bakal memengaruhi kredibilitas dari konvensi itu sendiri.

Ada beberapa kriteria utama yang harus dimiliki para pendaftar, di antaranya populer, memiliki integritas, loyal, dan paham dengan visi misi Partai Demokrat. Pendaftaran peserta konvensi calon presiden akan dimulai Agustus 2013 mendatang. Saat ini, beberapa persiapan tengah dimatangkan.

Pada bulan ini Partai Demokrat akan memulai tahapan dengan mengatur mekanisme peserta konvensi. Komite konvensi dan panitia seleksi akan dibentuk sebelum Agustus 2013. Pendaftar yang lolos seleksi akan diusung sebagai capres dari Partai Demokrat Pada pertengahan Agustus proses konvensi sudah berjalan dan para pendaftar konvensi mulai diseleksi. Konvensi ini digelar semi-terbuka dan hanya figur potensial yang diperbolehkan masuk dalam bursa konvensi.

Partai Demokrat memutuskan melakukan konvensi untuk menjaring kandidat calon presiden. Saat ini, tim seleksi tengah dibentuk dan akan diumumkan pada Juni 2013. Baik calon internal maupun eksternal diperkenankan mendaftar sebagai kandidat capres. Partai Demokrat akan menetapkan kriteria tertentu untuk menjaring setidaknya 15 calon. Setelah itu, akan ada tahapan kampanye ke daerah-daerah dan dilanjutkan dengan survei.

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.

Public perceptions of race relations in America have grown substantially more negative in the aftermath of the death of a young black man who was injured while in police custody in Baltimore and the subsequent unrest, far eclipsing the sentiment recorded in the wake of turmoil in Ferguson, Mo., last summer.

Americans are also increasingly likely to say that the police are more apt to use deadly force against a black person, the latest New York Times/CBS News poll finds.

The poll findings highlight the challenges for local leaders and police officials in trying to maintain order while sustaining faith in the criminal justice system in a racially polarized nation.

Sixty-one percent of Americans now say race relations in this country are generally bad. That figure is up sharply from 44 percent after the fatal police shooting of Michael Brown and the unrest that followed in Ferguson in August, and 43 percent in December. In a CBS News poll just two months ago, 38 percent said race relations were generally bad. Current views are by far the worst of Barack Obama’s presidency.

The negative sentiment is echoed by broad majorities of blacks and whites alike, a stark change from earlier this year, when 58 percent of blacks thought race relations were bad, but just 35 percent of whites agreed. In August, 48 percent of blacks and 41 percent of whites said they felt that way.

Looking ahead, 44 percent of Americans think race relations are worsening, up from 36 percent in December. Forty-one percent of blacks and 46 percent of whites think so. Pessimism among whites has increased 10 points since December.

The poll finds that profound racial divisions in views of how the police use deadly force remain. Blacks are more than twice as likely to say police in most communities are more apt to use deadly force against a black person — 79 percent of blacks say so compared with 37 percent of whites. A slim majority of whites say race is not a factor in a police officer’s decision to use deadly force.

Overall, 44 percent of Americans say deadly force is more likely to be used against a black person, up from 37 percent in August and 40 percent in December.

Blacks also remain far more likely than whites to say they feel mostly anxious about the police in their community. Forty-two percent say so, while 51 percent feel mostly safe. Among whites, 8 in 10 feel mostly safe.

One proposal to address the matter — having on-duty police officers wear body cameras — receives overwhelming support. More than 9 in 10 whites and blacks alike favor it.

Asked specifically about the situation in Baltimore, most Americans expressed at least some confidence that the investigation by local authorities would be conducted fairly. But while nearly two-thirds of whites think so, fewer than half of blacks agree. Still, more blacks are confident now than were in August regarding the investigation in Ferguson. On Friday, six members of the police force involved in the arrest of Mr. Gray were charged with serious offenses, including manslaughter. The poll was conducted Thursday through Sunday; results from before charges were announced are similar to those from after.

Reaction to the recent turmoil in Baltimore, however, is similar among blacks and whites. Most Americans, 61 percent, say the unrest after Mr. Gray’s death was not justified. That includes 64 percent of whites and 57 percent of blacks.

Negative View of U.S. Race Relations Grows, Poll Finds

UNITED NATIONS — Wearing pinstripes and a pince-nez, Staffan de Mistura, the United Nations envoy for Syria, arrived at the Security Council one Tuesday afternoon in February and announced that President Bashar al-Assad had agreed to halt airstrikes over Aleppo. Would the rebels, Mr. de Mistura suggested, agree to halt their shelling?

What he did not announce, but everyone knew by then, was that the Assad government had begun a military offensive to encircle opposition-held enclaves in Aleppo and that fierce fighting was underway. It would take only a few days for rebel leaders, having pushed back Syrian government forces, to outright reject Mr. de Mistura’s proposed freeze in the fighting, dooming the latest diplomatic overture on Syria.

Diplomacy is often about appearing to be doing something until the time is ripe for a deal to be done.

 

 

Now, with Mr. Assad’s forces having suffered a string of losses on the battlefield and the United States reaching at least a partial rapprochement with Mr. Assad’s main backer, Iran, Mr. de Mistura is changing course. Starting Monday, he is set to hold a series of closed talks in Geneva with the warring sides and their main supporters. Iran will be among them.

In an interview at United Nations headquarters last week, Mr. de Mistura hinted that the changing circumstances, both military and diplomatic, may have prompted various backers of the war to question how much longer the bloodshed could go on.

“Will that have an impact in accelerating the willingness for a political solution? We need to test it,” he said. “The Geneva consultations may be a good umbrella for testing that. It’s an occasion for asking everyone, including the government, if there is any new way that they are looking at a political solution, as they too claim they want.”

He said he would have a better assessment at the end of June, when he expects to wrap up his consultations. That coincides with the deadline for a final agreement in the Iran nuclear talks.

Whether a nuclear deal with Iran will pave the way for a new opening on peace talks in Syria remains to be seen. Increasingly, though, world leaders are explicitly linking the two, with the European Union’s top diplomat, Federica Mogherini, suggesting last week that a nuclear agreement could spur Tehran to play “a major but positive role in Syria.”

It could hardly come soon enough. Now in its fifth year, the Syrian war has claimed 220,000 lives, prompted an exodus of more than three million refugees and unleashed jihadist groups across the region. “This conflict is producing a question mark in many — where is it leading and whether this can be sustained,” Mr. de Mistura said.

Part Italian, part Swedish, Mr. de Mistura has worked with the United Nations for more than 40 years, but he is more widely known for his dapper style than for any diplomatic coups. Syria is by far the toughest assignment of his career — indeed, two of the organization’s most seasoned diplomats, Lakhdar Brahimi and Kofi Annan, tried to do the job and gave up — and critics have wondered aloud whether Mr. de Mistura is up to the task.

He served as a United Nations envoy in Afghanistan and Iraq, and before that in Lebanon, where a former minister recalled, with some scorn, that he spent many hours sunbathing at a private club in the hills above Beirut. Those who know him say he has a taste for fine suits and can sometimes speak too soon and too much, just as they point to his diplomatic missteps and hyperbole.

They cite, for instance, a news conference in October, when he raised the specter of Srebrenica, where thousands of Muslims were massacred in 1995 during the Balkans war, in warning that the Syrian border town of Kobani could fall to the Islamic State. In February, he was photographed at a party in Damascus, the Syrian capital, celebrating the anniversary of the Iranian revolution just as Syrian forces, aided by Iran, were pummeling rebel-held suburbs of Damascus; critics seized on that as evidence of his coziness with the government.

Mouin Rabbani, who served briefly as the head of Mr. de Mistura’s political affairs unit and has since emerged as one of his most outspoken critics, said Mr. de Mistura did not have the background necessary for the job. “This isn’t someone well known for his political vision or political imagination, and his closest confidants lack the requisite knowledge and experience,” Mr. Rabbani said.

As a deputy foreign minister in the Italian government, Mr. de Mistura was tasked in 2012 with freeing two Italian marines detained in India for shooting at Indian fishermen. He made 19 trips to India, to little effect. One marine was allowed to return to Italy for medical reasons; the other remains in India.

He said he initially turned down the Syria job when the United Nations secretary general approached him last August, only to change his mind the next day, after a sleepless, guilt-ridden night.

Mr. de Mistura compared his role in Syria to that of a doctor faced with a terminally ill patient. His goal in brokering a freeze in the fighting, he said, was to alleviate suffering. He settled on Aleppo as the location for its “fame,” he said, a decision that some questioned, considering that Aleppo was far trickier than the many other lesser-known towns where activists had negotiated temporary local cease-fires.

“Everybody, at least in Europe, are very familiar with the value of Aleppo,” Mr. de Mistura said. “So I was using that as an icebreaker.”

The cease-fire negotiations, to which he had devoted six months, fell apart quickly because of the government’s military offensive in Aleppo the very day of his announcement at the Security Council. Privately, United Nations diplomats said Mr. de Mistura had been manipulated. To this, Mr. de Mistura said only that he was “disappointed and concerned.”

Tarek Fares, a former rebel fighter, said after a recent visit to Aleppo that no Syrian would admit publicly to supporting Mr. de Mistura’s cease-fire proposal. “If anyone said they went to a de Mistura meeting in Gaziantep, they would be arrested,” is how he put it, referring to the Turkish city where negotiations between the two sides were held.

Secretary General Ban Ki-moon remains staunchly behind Mr. de Mistura’s efforts. His defenders point out that he is at the center of one of the world’s toughest diplomatic problems, charged with mediating a conflict in which two of the world’s most powerful nations — Russia, which supports Mr. Assad, and the United States, which has called for his ouster — remain deadlocked.

R. Nicholas Burns, a former State Department official who now teaches at Harvard, credited Mr. de Mistura for trying to negotiate a cease-fire even when the chances of success were exceedingly small — and the chances of a political deal even smaller. For his efforts to work, Professor Burns argued, the world powers will first have to come to an agreement of their own.

“He needs the help of outside powers,” he said. “It starts with backers of Assad. That’s Russia and Iran. De Mistura is there, waiting.”

With Iran Talks, a Tangled Path to Ending Syria’s War

Late in April, after Native American actors walked off in disgust from the set of Adam Sandler’s latest film, a western sendup that its distributor, Netflix, has defended as being equally offensive to all, a glow of pride spread through several Native American communities.

Tantoo Cardinal, a Canadian indigenous actress who played Black Shawl in “Dances With Wolves,” recalled thinking to herself, “It’s come.” Larry Sellers, who starred as Cloud Dancing in the 1990s television show “Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman,” thought, “It’s about time.” Jesse Wente, who is Ojibwe and directs film programming at the TIFF Bell Lightbox in Toronto, found himself encouraged and surprised. There are so few film roles for indigenous actors, he said, that walking off the set of a major production showed real mettle.

But what didn’t surprise Mr. Wente was the content of the script. According to the actors who walked off the set, the film, titled “The Ridiculous Six,” included a Native American woman who passes out and is revived after white men douse her with alcohol, and another woman squatting to urinate while lighting a peace pipe. “There’s enough history at this point to have set some expectations around these sort of Hollywood depictions,” Mr. Wente said.

The walkout prompted a rhetorical “What do you expect from an Adam Sandler film?,” and a Netflix spokesman said that in the movie, blacks, Mexicans and whites were lampooned as well. But Native American actors and critics said a broader issue was at stake. While mainstream portrayals of native peoples have, Mr. Wente said, become “incrementally better” over the decades, he and others say, they remain far from accurate and reflect a lack of opportunities for Native American performers. What’s more, as Native Americans hunger for representation on screen, critics say the absence of three-dimensional portrayals has very real off-screen consequences.

“Our people are still healing from historical trauma,” said Loren Anthony, one of the actors who walked out. “Our youth are still trying to figure out who they are, where they fit in this society. Kids are killing themselves. They’re not proud of who they are.” They also don’t, he added, see themselves on prime time television or the big screen. Netflix noted while about five people walked off the “The Ridiculous Six” set, 100 or so Native American actors and extras stayed.

But in interviews, nearly a dozen Native American actors and film industry experts said that Mr. Sandler’s humor perpetuated decades-old negative stereotypes. Mr. Anthony said such depictions helped feed the despondency many Native Americans feel, with deadly results: Native Americans have the highest suicide rate out of all the country’s ethnicities.

The on-screen problem is twofold, Mr. Anthony and others said: There’s a paucity of roles for Native Americans — according to the Screen Actors Guild in 2008 they accounted for 0.3 percent of all on-screen parts (those figures have yet to be updated), compared to about 2 percent of the general population — and Native American actors are often perceived in a narrow way.

In his Peabody Award-winning documentary “Reel Injun,” the Cree filmmaker Neil Diamond explored Hollywood depictions of Native Americans over the years, and found they fell into a few stereotypical categories: the Noble Savage, the Drunk Indian, the Mystic, the Indian Princess, the backward tribal people futilely fighting John Wayne and manifest destiny. While the 1990 film “Dances With Wolves” won praise for depicting Native Americans as fully fleshed out human beings, not all indigenous people embraced it. It was still told, critics said, from the colonialists’ point of view. In an interview, John Trudell, a Santee Sioux writer, actor (“Thunderheart”) and the former chairman of the American Indian Movement, described the film as “a story of two white people.”

“God bless ‘Dances with Wolves,’ ” Michael Horse, who played Deputy Hawk in “Twin Peaks,” said sarcastically. “Even ‘Avatar.’ Someone’s got to come save the tribal people.”

Dan Spilo, a partner at Industry Entertainment who represents Adam Beach, one of today’s most prominent Native American actors, said while typecasting dogs many minorities, it is especially intractable when it comes to Native Americans. Casting directors, he said, rarely cast them as police officers, doctors or lawyers. “There’s the belief that the Native American character should be on reservations or riding a horse,” he said.

“We don’t see ourselves,” Mr. Horse said. “We’re still an antiquated culture to them, and to the rest of the world.”

Ms. Cardinal said she was once turned down for the role of the wife of a child-abusing cop because the filmmakers felt that casting her would somehow be “too political.”

Another sore point is the long run of white actors playing American Indians, among them Burt Lancaster, Rock Hudson, Audrey Hepburn and, more recently, Johnny Depp, whose depiction of Tonto in the 2013 film “Lone Ranger,” was viewed as racist by detractors. There are, of course, exceptions. The former A&E series “Longmire,” which, as it happens, will now be on Netflix, was roundly praised for its depiction of life on a Northern Cheyenne reservation, with Lou Diamond Phillips, who is of Cherokee descent, playing a Northern Cheyenne man.

Others also point to the success of Mr. Beach, who played a Mohawk detective in “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” and landed a starring role in the forthcoming D C Comics picture “Suicide Squad.” Mr. Beach said he had come across insulting scripts backed by people who don’t see anything wrong with them.

“I’d rather starve than do something that is offensive to my ancestral roots,” Mr. Beach said. “But I think there will always be attempts to drawn on the weakness of native people’s struggles. The savage Indian will always be the savage Indian. The white man will always be smarter and more cunning. The cavalry will always win.”

The solution, Mr. Wente, Mr. Trudell and others said, lies in getting more stories written by and starring Native Americans. But Mr. Wente noted that while independent indigenous film has blossomed in the last two decades, mainstream depictions have yet to catch up. “You have to stop expecting for Hollywood to correct it, because there seems to be no ability or desire to correct it,” Mr. Wente said.

There have been calls to boycott Netflix but, writing for Indian Country Today Media Network, which first broke news of the walk off, the filmmaker Brian Young noted that the distributor also offered a number of films by or about Native Americans.

The furor around “The Ridiculous Six” may drive more people to see it. Then one of the questions that Mr. Trudell, echoing others, had about the film will be answered: “Who the hell laughs at this stuff?”

Native American Actors Work to Overcome a Long-Documented Bias

Last summer at a writers’ workshop in Oregon, the novelists Anthony Doerr, Karen Russell and Elissa Schappell were chatting over cocktails when they realized they had all published work in the same magazine. It wasn’t one of the usual literary outlets, like Tin House, The Paris Review or The New Yorker. It was Rhapsody, an in-flight magazine for United Airlines.

It seemed like a weird coincidence. Then again, considering Rhapsody’s growing roster of A-list fiction writers, maybe not. Since its first issue hit plane cabins a year and a half ago, Rhapsody has published original works by literary stars like Joyce Carol Oates, Rick Moody, Amy Bloom, Emma Straub and Mr. Doerr, who won the Pulitzer Prize for fiction two weeks ago.

As airlines try to distinguish their high-end service with luxuries like private sleeping chambers, showers, butler service and meals from five-star chefs, United Airlines is offering a loftier, more cerebral amenity to its first-class and business-class passengers: elegant prose by prominent novelists. There are no airport maps or disheartening lists of in-flight meal and entertainment options in Rhapsody. Instead, the magazine has published ruminative first-person travel accounts, cultural dispatches and probing essays about flight by more than 30 literary fiction writers.

An airline might seem like an odd literary patron. But as publishers and writers look for new ways to reach readers in a shaky retail climate, many have formed corporate alliances with transit companies, including American Airlines, JetBlue and Amtrak, that provide a captive audience.

Mark Krolick, United Airlines’ managing director of marketing and product development, said the quality of the writing in Rhapsody brings a patina of sophistication to its first-class service, along with other opulent touches like mood lighting, soft music and a branded scent.

“The high-end leisure or business-class traveler has higher expectations, even in the entertainment we provide,” he said.

Some of Rhapsody’s contributing writers say they were lured by the promise of free airfare and luxury accommodations provided by United, as well as exposure to an elite audience of some two million first-class and business-class travelers.

“It’s not your normal Park Slope Community Bookstore types who read Rhapsody,” Mr. Moody, author of the 1994 novel “The Ice Storm,” who wrote an introspective, philosophical piece about traveling to the Aran Islands of Ireland for Rhapsody, said in an email. “I’m not sure I myself am in that Rhapsody demographic, but I would like them to buy my books one day.”

In addition to offering travel perks, the magazine pays well and gives writers freedom, within reason, to choose their subject matter and write with style. Certain genres of flight stories are off limits, naturally: no plane crashes or woeful tales of lost luggage or rude flight attendants, and nothing too risqué.

“We’re not going to have someone write about joining the mile-high club,” said Jordan Heller, the editor in chief of Rhapsody. “Despite those restrictions, we’ve managed to come up with a lot of high-minded literary content.”

Guiding writers toward the right idea occasionally requires some gentle prodding. When Rhapsody’s executive editor asked Ms. Russell to contribute an essay about a memorable flight experience, she first pitched a story about the time she was chaperoning a group of teenagers on a trip to Europe, and their delayed plane sat at the airport in New York for several hours while other passengers got progressively drunker.

“He pointed out that disaster flights are not what people want to read about when they’re in transit, and very diplomatically suggested that maybe people want to read something that casts air travel in a more positive light,” said Ms. Russell, whose novel “Swamplandia!” was a finalist for the 2012 Pulitzer Prize.

She turned in a nostalgia-tinged essay about her first flight on a trip to Disney World when she was 6. “The Magic Kingdom was an anticlimax,” she wrote. “What ride could compare to that first flight?”

Ms. Oates also wrote about her first flight, in a tiny yellow propeller plane piloted by her father. The novelist Joyce Maynard told of the constant disappointment of never seeing her books in airport bookstores and the thrill of finally spotting a fellow plane passenger reading her novel “Labor Day.” Emily St. John Mandel, who was a finalist for the National Book Award in fiction last year, wrote about agonizing over which books to bring on a long flight.

“There’s nobody that’s looked down their noses at us as an in-flight magazine,” said Sean Manning, the magazine’s executive editor. “As big as these people are in the literary world, there’s still this untapped audience for them of luxury travelers.”

United is one of a handful of companies showcasing work by literary writers as a way to elevate their brands and engage customers. Chipotle has printed original work from writers like Toni Morrison, Jeffrey Eugenides and Barbara Kingsolver on its disposable cups and paper bags. The eyeglass company Warby Parker hosts parties for authors and sells books from 14 independent publishers in its stores.

JetBlue offers around 40 e-books from HarperCollins and Penguin Random House on its free wireless network, allowing passengers to read free samples and buy and download books. JetBlue will start offering 11 digital titles from Simon & Schuster soon. Amtrak recently forged an alliance with Penguin Random House to provide free digital samples from 28 popular titles, which passengers can buy and download over Amtrak’s admittedly spotty wireless service.

Amtrak is becoming an incubator for literary talent in its own right. Last year, it started a residency program, offering writers a free long-distance train trip and complimentary food. More than 16,000 writers applied and 24 made the cut.

Like Amtrak, Rhapsody has found that writers are eager to get onboard. On a rainy spring afternoon, Rhapsody’s editorial staff sat around a conference table discussing the June issue, which will feature an essay by the novelist Hannah Pittard and an unpublished short story by the late Elmore Leonard.

“Do you have that photo of Elmore Leonard? Can I see it?” Mr. Heller, the editor in chief, asked Rhapsody’s design director, Christos Hannides. Mr. Hannides slid it across the table and noted that they also had a photograph of cowboy spurs. “It’s very simple; it won’t take away from the literature,” he said.

Rhapsody’s office, an open space with exposed pipes and a vaulted brick ceiling, sits in Dumbo at the epicenter of literary Brooklyn, in the same converted tea warehouse as the literary journal N+1 and the digital publisher Atavist. Two of the magazine’s seven staff members hold graduate degrees in creative writing. Mr. Manning, the executive editor, has published a memoir and edited five literary anthologies.

Mr. Manning said Rhapsody was conceived from the start as a place for literary novelists to write with voice and style, and nobody had been put off that their work would live in plane cabins and airport lounges.

Still, some contributors say they wish the magazine were more widely circulated.

“I would love it if I could read it,” said Ms. Schappell, a Brooklyn-based novelist who wrote a feature story for Rhapsody’s inaugural issue. “But I never fly first class.”

Rhapsody, a Lofty Literary Journal, Perused at 39,000 Feet

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.

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.

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.
