Direktur Utama PT PLN Nur Pamudji untuk yang kesekian kalinya telah dipanggil oleh Kejaksaan Agung. Anak buah Dahlan Iskan itu dipanggil terkait dalam pengadaan flame turbin pada 12 pembangkit listrik dan gas sektor Belawan tahun 2007-2009 lalu senilai Rp 23,98 miliar.

Direktur Utama PT PLN Nur Pamudji untuk yang kesekian kalinya telah dipanggil oleh Kejaksaan Agung. Anak buah Dahlan Iskan itu dipanggil terkait dalam pengadaan flame turbin pada 12 pembangkit listrik dan gas sektor Belawan tahun 2007-2009 lalu senilai Rp 23,98 miliar.

"Jadwal rencana pemeriksaan Selasa 11 Maret 2014, saksi Nur Pamudji selaku direktur utama PT PLN," kata Kepala Pusat Penerangan Hukum (Kapuspenkum) Kejaksaan Agung Setia Untung Arimuladi, Selasa (11/3).

Selain Nur, Kejaksaan juga telah memanggil saksi lainnya yaitu Setia Anggoro Dewo selaku direktur keuangan PT PLN dan Eddy D Erning Praja selaku direktur SDM & umum PT PLN.

Sebelumnya, dalam kasus ini Kejaksaan agung juga telah menetapkan lima tersangka dari PLN antara lain mantan General Manajer PT PLN Pembangkitan Sumatera Bagian Utara Albert Pangaribuan, Manajer Bidang Perencanaan PLN Edward Silitonga, Ketua Panitia Pemeriksa Mutu Barang PLN Ferdinand Ritonga, Manajer Produksi PLN Fahmi Rizal Lubis, dan Ketua Panitia Lelang PLN Robert Manyuazar.Penyidik menduga ada penggelembungan harga dalam pengadaan flame turbim tahun anggaran 2007, 2008, dan 2009.

Hal ini dikarenakan alat tersebut tidak sesuai spesifikasi yang telah ditentukan.Tender ini juga telah dimenangkan oleh dengan MAPNA dari Iran yang memiliki kualifikasi non OEM (Original of Manufucture). Harga spare part non OEM memang lebih murah 40 persen dibandingkan OEM. Tak sampai di situ kerusakan flame turbin tersebut juga menjadi bukti ada penyelewengan dalam pengadaan dan pemeliharaan flame turbin.

Akibat dari kasus ini, Nur sempat disebut akan mengundurkan diri. Meski begitu sampai saat ini kabar itu belum terbukti, sebab Nur juga masih menjalankan tugasnya di BUMN tersebut.

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.

BEIJING (AP) — The head of Taiwan's Nationalists reaffirmed the party's support for eventual unification with the mainland when he met Monday with Chinese President Xi Jinping as part of continuing rapprochement between the former bitter enemies.

Nationalist Party Chairman Eric Chu, a likely presidential candidate next year, also affirmed Taiwan's desire to join the proposed Chinese-led Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank during the meeting in Beijing. China claims Taiwan as its own territory and doesn't want the island to join using a name that might imply it is an independent country.

Chu's comments during his meeting with Xi were carried live on Hong Kong-based broadcaster Phoenix Television.

The Nationalists were driven to Taiwan by Mao Zedong's Communists during the Chinese civil war in 1949, leading to decades of hostility between the sides. Chu, who took over as party leader in January, is the third Nationalist chairman to visit the mainland and the first since 2009.

Relations between the communist-ruled mainland and the self-governing democratic island of Taiwan began to warm in the 1990s, partly out of their common opposition to Taiwan's formal independence from China, a position advocated by the island's Democratic Progressive Party.

Despite increasingly close economic ties, the prospect of political unification has grown increasingly unpopular on Taiwan, especially with younger voters. Opposition to the Nationalists' pro-China policies was seen as a driver behind heavy local electoral defeats for the party last year that led to Taiwanese President Ma Ying-jeou resigning as party chairman.
