Partai Keadilan Sejahtera (PKS) dinilai inkonsisten dalam menyikapi kebijakan pemerintah.

JAKARTA, Saco-Indonesia.com — Partai Keadilan Sejahtera (PKS) dinilai inkonsisten dalam menyikapi kebijakan pemerintah. Sebagai partai koalisi, PKS diminta tidak merongrong pemerintah hanya untuk menarik simpati masyarakat.

"Koalisi itu kan dengan niat baik, kesamaan visi, bukan sebaliknya merongrong pemerintah di saat rakyat memerlukan bantuan," kata Wakil Ketua Umum Partai Demokrat Nurhayati Ali Assegaf seusai menghadiri rapat Sekretariat Gabungan (Setgab) di rumah dinas Wakil Presiden Boediono, Menteng, Jakarta Pusat, Selasa (4/6/2013) malam. Dalam rapat tersebut, hanya pimpinan PKS yang tak hadir di antara semua partai dalam koalisi pendukung pemerintah.

Sekretaris Fraksi PKS di DPR Abdul Hakim mengatakan, ketidakhadiran pimpinan PKS dalam rapat tersebut semata karena alasan teknis. Pada saat rapat digelar, Presiden PKS Anis Matta sedang ada kegiatan di Jombang, Jawa Timur. Terlebih lagi, ujar dia, semula undangan rapat ditujukan pada pimpinan fraksi, tetapi kemudian dibatalkan sehingga, imbuh dia, pimpinan fraksi yang wonsemula akan menghadiri pertemuan juga membatalkan kehadirannya.

Agenda pertemuan Setgab ini adalah membahas rencana pemerintah menaikkan harga bahan bakar minyak (BBM), pemberian bantuan langsung sementara miskin (BLSM) sebagai kompensasi, dan konsolidasi koalisi. Rapat ini digelar sesuai arahan Presiden Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono.

Menyikapi ketidakhadiran PKS dalam rapat, Nurhayati mengatakan sudah kebal dengan polah partai itu. Dia pun mengecam langkah PKS yang pada satu sisi menyatakan menolak kenaikan harga BBM dengan alasan membela rakyat, tetapi di sisi lain tetap bergabung di gerbong partai koalisi pendukung pemerintah.

Nurhayati enggan menghakimi atau mengusulkan agar PKS hengkang dari koalisi. Sebagai partai cerdas, PKS dianggapnya mampu bersikap lebih konsisten, termasuk menentukan keputusan bersama partai koalisi. "Tidak perlu diusulkan (untuk keluar koalisi). Kalau sudah tidak bisa bersama, apa harus dipertahankan?" ujar dia.

Gede Pasek Suardika telah merasa yakin kursinya di senayan aman hingga masa jabatannya berakhir. Keyakinan itu karena Ketua Umum DPP Partai Demokrat Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono masih sayang terhadap dirinya.

Gede Pasek Suardika telah merasa yakin kursinya di senayan aman hingga masa jabatannya berakhir. Keyakinan itu karena Ketua Umum DPP Partai Demokrat Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono masih sayang terhadap dirinya.

Kendati Ketua Harian Demokrat Syarif Hasan juga telah mengajukan surat pencopotan Pasek dari keanggotaan DPR dan partai, namun sampai saat ini posisi politisi asal Bali itu masih aman bercokol di Senayan.

Dia juga menilai, surat pemecatan dan pemanggilan yang diajukan Syarif dinilai janggal sehingga oleh pimpinan DPR hal itu ditolak.

“Kok saya yang dipecat, sementara dia yang jelas-jelas terlibat kasus videotroon dibiarkan,“ ujar Pasek , Selasa (18/3/2014).

Karenanya, alasan pemecatan yang dinilai aneh dan tidak sesuai mekanisme telah membuat pimpinan DPR menolak dan SBY juga tidak meneken surat persetujuan pemecatan.

“Ketum (SBY), masih sayang saya, nyatanya sampai sekarang beliau tidak mau menandatangani surat pemecatan,“ imbuh Pasek yang kini maju sebagai calon Dewan Perwakilan Daerah DPD itu.

Bagi Pasek, SBY telah menjadi guru politiknya selama ini dan dia tidak ada keinginan untuk keluar dari partai berlambang bintang mercy itu.

Meski demikian, Pasek tetap memandang jika nantinya dia benar-benar dipecat maka tidak dianggapnya sebagai musibah, malah menjadi berkah.

"Sekarang saya main di pinggiran, main seperti makan bubur justru lebih nikmat, ya dinikmati saja," imbuh Sekjend Perhimpunan Pergerakan Indonesia (PPI) itu.

Though Robin and Joan Rolfs owned two rare talking dolls manufactured by Thomas Edison’s phonograph company in 1890, they did not dare play the wax cylinder records tucked inside each one.

The Rolfses, longtime collectors of Edison phonographs, knew that if they turned the cranks on the dolls’ backs, the steel phonograph needle might damage or destroy the grooves of the hollow, ring-shaped cylinder. And so for years, the dolls sat side by side inside a display cabinet, bearers of a message from the dawn of sound recording that nobody could hear.

In 1890, Edison’s dolls were a flop; production lasted only six weeks. Children found them difficult to operate and more scary than cuddly. The recordings inside, which featured snippets of nursery rhymes, wore out quickly.

Yet sound historians say the cylinders were the first entertainment records ever made, and the young girls hired to recite the rhymes were the world’s first recording artists.

Year after year, the Rolfses asked experts if there might be a safe way to play the recordings. Then a government laboratory developed a method to play fragile records without touching them.

Audio

The technique relies on a microscope to create images of the grooves in exquisite detail. A computer approximates — with great accuracy — the sounds that would have been created by a needle moving through those grooves.

In 2014, the technology was made available for the first time outside the laboratory.

“The fear all along is that we don’t want to damage these records. We don’t want to put a stylus on them,” said Jerry Fabris, the curator of the Thomas Edison Historical Park in West Orange, N.J. “Now we have the technology to play them safely.”

Last month, the Historical Park posted online three never-before-heard Edison doll recordings, including the two from the Rolfses’ collection. “There are probably more out there, and we’re hoping people will now get them digitized,” Mr. Fabris said.

The technology, which is known as Irene (Image, Reconstruct, Erase Noise, Etc.), was developed by the particle physicist Carl Haber and the engineer Earl Cornell at Lawrence Berkeley. Irene extracts sound from cylinder and disk records. It can also reconstruct audio from recordings so badly damaged they were deemed unplayable.

“We are now hearing sounds from history that I did not expect to hear in my lifetime,” Mr. Fabris said.

The Rolfses said they were not sure what to expect in August when they carefully packed their two Edison doll cylinders, still attached to their motors, and drove from their home in Hortonville, Wis., to the National Document Conservation Center in Andover, Mass. The center had recently acquired Irene technology.

Audio

Cylinders carry sound in a spiral groove cut by a phonograph recording needle that vibrates up and down, creating a surface made of tiny hills and valleys. In the Irene set-up, a microscope perched above the shaft takes thousands of high-resolution images of small sections of the grooves.

Stitched together, the images provide a topographic map of the cylinder’s surface, charting changes in depth as small as one five-hundredth the thickness of a human hair. Pitch, volume and timbre are all encoded in the hills and valleys and the speed at which the record is played.

At the conservation center, the preservation specialist Mason Vander Lugt attached one of the cylinders to the end of a rotating shaft. Huddled around a computer screen, the Rolfses first saw the wiggly waveform generated by Irene. Then came the digital audio. The words were at first indistinct, but as Mr. Lugt filtered out more of the noise, the rhyme became clearer.

“That was the Eureka moment,” Mr. Rolfs said.

In 1890, a girl in Edison’s laboratory had recited:

There was a little girl,

And she had a little curl

Audio

Right in the middle of her forehead.

When she was good,

She was very, very good.

But when she was bad, she was horrid.

Recently, the conservation center turned up another surprise.

In 2010, the Woody Guthrie Foundation received 18 oversize phonograph disks from an anonymous donor. No one knew if any of the dirt-stained recordings featured Guthrie, but Tiffany Colannino, then the foundation’s archivist, had stored them unplayed until she heard about Irene.

Last fall, the center extracted audio from one of the records, labeled “Jam Session 9” and emailed the digital file to Ms. Colannino.

“I was just sitting in my dining room, and the next thing I know, I’m hearing Woody,” she said. In between solo performances of “Ladies Auxiliary,” “Jesus Christ,” and “Dead or Alive,” Guthrie tells jokes, offers some back story, and makes the audience laugh. “It is quintessential Guthrie,” Ms. Colannino said.

The Rolfses’ dolls are back in the display cabinet in Wisconsin. But with audio stored on several computers, they now have a permanent voice.

The live music at the Vice Media party on Friday shook the room. Shane Smith, Vice’s chief executive, was standing near the stage — with a drink in his hand, pants sagging, tattoos showing — watching the rapper-cum-chef Action Bronson make pizzas.

The event was an after-party, a happy-hour bacchanal for the hundreds of guests who had come for Vice’s annual presentation to advertisers and agencies that afternoon, part of the annual frenzy for ad dollars called the Digital Content NewFronts. Mr. Smith had spoken there for all of five minutes before running a slam-bang highlight reel of the company’s shows that had titles like “Weediquette” and “Gaycation.”

In the last year, Vice has secured $500 million in financing and signed deals worth hundreds of millions of dollars with established media companies like HBO that are eager to engage the young viewers Vice attracts. Vice said it was now worth at least $4 billion, with nearly $1 billion in projected revenue for 2015. It is a long way from Vice’s humble start as a free magazine in 1994.

But even as cash flows freely in Vice’s direction, the company is trying to keep its brash, insurgent image. At the party on Friday, it plied guests with beers and cocktails. Its apparently unrehearsed presentation to advertisers was peppered with expletives. At one point, the director Spike Jonze, a longtime Vice collaborator, asked on stage if Mr. Smith had been drinking.

“My assistant tried to cut me off,” Mr. Smith replied. “I’m on buzz control.”

Now, Vice is on the verge of getting its own cable channel, which would give the company a traditional outlet for its slate of non-news programming. If all goes as planned, A&E Networks, the television group owned by Hearst and Disney, will turn over its History Channel spinoff, H2, to Vice.

The deal’s announcement was expected last week, but not all of A&E’s distribution partners — the cable and satellite TV companies that carry the network’s channels — have signed off on the change, according to a person familiar with the negotiations who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the talks were private.

A cable channel would be a further step in a transformation for Vice, from bad-boy digital upstart to mainstream media company.

Keen for the core audience of young men who come to Vice, media giants like 21st Century Fox, Time Warner and Disney all showed interest in the company last year. Vice ultimately secured $500 million in financing from A&E Networks and Technology Crossover Ventures, a Silicon Valley venture capital firm that has invested in Facebook and Netflix.

Those investments valued Vice at more than $2.5 billion. (In 2013, Fox bought a 5 percent stake for $70 million.)

Then in March, HBO announced that it had signed a multiyear deal to broadcast a daily half-hour Vice newscast. Vice already produces a weekly newsmagazine show, called “Vice,” for the network. That show will extend its run through 2018, with an increase to 35 episodes a year, from 14.

Michael Lombardo, HBO’s president for programming, said when the deal was announced that it was “certainly one of our biggest investments with hours on the air.”

Vice, based in Brooklyn, also recently signed a multiyear $100 million deal with Rogers Communications, a Canadian media conglomerate, to produce original content for TV, smartphone and desktop viewers.

Vice’s finances are private, but according to an internal document reviewed by The New York Times and verified by a person familiar with the company’s financials, the company is on track to make about $915 million in revenue this year.

It brought in $545 million in a strong first quarter, which included portions of the new HBO deal and the Rogers deal, according to the document. More of its revenue now comes from these types of content partnerships, compared with the branded content deals that made up much of its revenue a year ago, the company said.

Mr. Smith said the company was worth at least $4 billion. If the valuation gets much higher, he said he would consider taking the company public.

“I don’t care about money; we have plenty of money,” Mr. Smith, who is Vice’s biggest shareholder, said in an interview after the presentation on Friday. “I care about strategic deals.”

In the United States, Vice Media had 35.2 million unique visitors across its sites in March, according to comScore.

The third season of Vice’s weekly HBO show has averaged 1.8 million viewers per episode, including reruns, through April 12, according to Brad Adgate, the director of research at Horizon Media. (Vice said the show attracted three million weekly viewers when repeat broadcasts, online and on-demand viewings were included.)

For years, Mr. Smith has criticized traditional TV, calling it slow and unable to draw younger viewers. But if all the deals Vice has struck are to work out, Mr. Smith may have to play more by the rules of traditional media. James Murdoch, Rupert Murdoch’s son and a member of Vice’s board, was at the company’s presentation on Friday, as were other top media executives.

“They know they need people like me to help them, but they can’t get out of their own way,” Mr. Smith said in the interview Friday. “My only real frustration is we’re used to being incredibly dynamic, and they’re not incredibly dynamic.”

With its own television channel in the United States, Vice would have something it has long coveted even as traditional media companies are looking beyond TV. Last year, Vice’s deal with Time Warner failed in part because the two companies could not agree on how much control Vice would have over a 24-hour television network.

Vice said it intended to fill its new channel with non-news programming. The company plans to have sports shows, fashion shows, food shows and the “Gaycation” travel show with the actress Ellen Page. It is also in talks with Kanye West about a show.

It remains to be seen whether Vice’s audience will watch a traditional cable channel. Still, Vice has effectively presold all of the ad spots to two of the biggest advertising agencies for the first three years, Mr. Smith said.

In the meantime, Mr. Smith is enjoying Vice’s newfound role as a potential savior of traditional media companies.

“I’m a C.E.O. of a content company,” Mr. Smith said before he caught a flight to Las Vegas for the boxing match on Saturday between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao. “If it stops being fun, then why are you doing it?”
