saco-indonesia.com, Aktivitas Gunung Sinabung di Kabupaten Karo masih terbilang tinggi. Hal tersebut telah terlihat dari guguran

saco-indonesia.com, Aktivitas Gunung Sinabung di Kabupaten Karo masih terbilang tinggi. Hal tersebut telah terlihat dari guguran lava pijar yang keluar dari kawah gunung tersebut sejak Minggu 9 Februari 2014 malam hingga Senin (10/2/2014) dini hari.

Petugas Pos Pemantau Gunung Sinabung, Ahmad Nabawi, telah menuturkan, pihaknya juga mencatat, sepanjang Minggu telah terjadi ratusan kali guguran lava pijar.

Namun secara visual, guguran lava pijar tersebut baru terlihat jelas pada Minggu malam. Lava keluar dari kawah Gunung Sinabung dan telah mengalir ke parit-parit di lereng gunung. Lava pijar keluar bersama awan panas.

Nabawi juga melanjutkan, selain terus menerus mengeluarkan lava, gempa juga masih terus terjadi. Diperkirakan lava tersebut juga masih akan terus keluar mengingat intensitas kegempaan Sinabung masih tinggi.

Sementara itu, rencana Pemkab Tanah Karo untuk dapat memulangkan warga dari beberapa posko pengungsian telah mendapat tentangan. Ratusan warga tersebut belum mau dipulangkan karena khawatir dan trauma.

Pernyataan penolakan itu telah disampaikan para pengungsi saat sosialisasi yang digelar Pemkab Karo dan BPBD Sumatera Utara di Pos Pengungsian Gereja Advent di Desa Sumbul, Kecamatan Kabanjahe.

Kepala BPBD Sumut, H Asren NST, telah menjelaskan, wacana pemulangan pengungsi yang berasal dari empat desa di Kecamatan Payung sudah seusai dengan rekomendasi badan geologi. Pasalnya desa-desa tersebut berada di luar zona bahaya, yakni di atas lima kilometer dari kawah

Indonesia mempunyai beragam minuman tradisional yang menawarkan banyak manfaat, terutama bagi kesehatan tubuh

1. STMJ
Minuman yang terbuat dari susu, telur, madu, dan jahe ini tentunya sudah tidak asing lagi bagi anda. Minumlah minuman ini dikala anda merasa lesu, lelah, dan kurang enak badan. Minum STMJ diyakini bisa memulihkan tenaga, menambah kekebalan dan menghangatkan tubuh anda.

2. Wedang jahe
Wedang jahe atau air jahe hangat sangat tepat dikonsumsi ketika sistem kekebalan tubuh menurun, terutama saat musim hujan di mana tubuh kita cukup rentan terserang berbagai penyakit seperti flu. Selain itu, minuman jahe dapat membantu menurunkan kadar kolesterol, mencegah potensi stroke, hingga risiko serangan jantung.

3. Wedang ronde
Wedang ronde hampir sama dengan wedang jahe, namun menawarkan sensasi yang berbeda. Wedang ronde merupakan perpaduan antara wedang jahe dengan bola-bola ketan yang terdiri dari kacang dan gula. Bola-bola ketan ini cukup kenyal dan rasanya enak. Kacang yang terdapat dalam bola-bola ketan tersebut juga menawarkan segudang nutrisi yang baik bagi tubuh, sehingga mengonsumsi wedang ronde terutama di saat tubuh kurang fit adalah langkah yang tepat.

4. Bandrek
Minuman hangat tradisional asli Jawa Barat ini juga menawarkan banyak manfaat bagi kesehatan. Sama seperti minuman tradisional lainnya, bandrek cukup efektif dalam menghangatkan tubuh. Dari bahan-bahannya saja, bisa diketahui bahwa bandrek adalah minuman kaya manfaat. Bandrek menawarkan keharuman rempah-rempah, terdiri dari kayu manis, serai, cengkih, pandan, tambahan gula dan sedikit garam.

5. Bajigur
Satu lagi minuman tradisional khas Jawa Barat adalah bajigur. Bajigur adalah minuman hangat yang terbuat dari santan, gula aren, garam, dan sedikit jahe. Kadangkala, penyajian bandrek biasanya juga ditambah dengan sedikit cengkaleng (kolang-kaling). Bajigur sangat cocok dinikmati ketika cuaca dingin. Kacang rebus, pisang rebus, dan ubi manis adalah ‘camilan’ yang tepat untuk menemani anda disaat menikmati bajigur.

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.

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.

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.”
