Alexander the Great

31 December 2009 |

Inspired in his leadership, fearless in battle, and boundless in his ambition, Alexander the Great was worshiped as a god during his lifetime, and his legend has only grown since— he remains in the forefront of the public imagination with no fewer than two upcoming major motion pictures devoted to his life. Inheriting his father’s empire at the age of twenty, Alexander resolved to expand it, and by the time of his death at thirty- two, his empire covered most of the known world—from Greece to India—encompassing two million square miles.

Genghis Khan was the military leaded that conquered more territory then any commander in history including Alexander the Great, Julius Caesar and Napoleon Bonaparte. Ganghis Khan was the founder of the Mongol Empire, the largest contiguous empire in history.

He came to power by uniting many of the nomadic tribes of northeast Asia. After founding the Mongol Empire and being proclaimed " Khan" (king), he pursued an aggressive foreign policy by starting the Mongol invasions of East and Central Asia. During his life, the Mongol Empire eventually occupied most of Asia.




FROM this time, which was about sixty- seven years before the birth of Christ, Caesar remained for nine years generally at Rome, en gaged there in a constant struggle for power. He was successful in these efforts, rising all the time from one position of influence and honor to another, until he became altogether the most prominent and powerful man in the city. A great many incidents are recorded, as attending these contests, which illustrate in a very striking manner the strange mixture of rude violence and legal formality by vhich Rome was in those days governed.

Many of the most important offices of the state depended upon the votes of the people; and as the people had very little opportunity to become acquainted with the real merits of the case in respect to questions of government, they gave their votes very much according to the personal popularity of the candidate. Public men had very little moral principle in those Bribery and corruption. Public amusements. days, and they would accordingly resort to any means whatever to procure this personal popularity. They who wanted office were accustomed to bribe influential men among the people to support them, sometimes by promising them subordinate offices, and sometimes by the direct donation of sums of money ; and they would try to please the mass of the people, who were too numerous to be paid with offices or with gold, by shows and spectacles, and entertainments of every kind which they would provide for their amusement. This practice seems to us very absurd; and we wonder that the Roman people should tolerate it, since it is evident that the means for defraying these expenses must come, ultimately, in some way or other,...

Membongkar Gurita Cikeas (4)

27 December 2009 |

Inilah lanjutan cuplikan isi buku Membongkar Gurita Cikeas: di Balik Kasus Bank Century, yang ditulis oleh George Junus Aditjondro, diterbitkan oleh Galang Pers, dilaunching Hari Rabu (23/12) di Yogya dan ditarik dari peredaran hari Sabtu (26/12). Kutipan ini diambil dari halaman 5 dan 6:

Kembali ke kelompok Jurnas dan hubungannya dengan Grup Sampoerna, di tahun 2008, Ting Ananta Setiawan mengundurkan diri darijabatan Pemimpin Perusahaan, yang kini dirangkap oleh Pemimpin Umum, N. Syamsuddin Haesy.

Namun nama Ananta Setiawan tetap tercantum sebagai Pemimpin Perusahaan, sebagai konsekuensi dari SIUP PT Media Nusa Perdana.

Mundurnya Ananta Setiawan secara de facto terjadi seiring dengan mengecilnya saham Sampoerna dalam perusahaan media itu, dan meningkatnya peranan Gatot Murdiantoro Suwondo sebagai pengawas keuangan perusahaan itu. Isteri Dirut BNI ini, dikabarkan masih kerabat Ny. Ani Yudhoyono (McBeth 2007).

Berapa besar dana yang telah disuntikkan Grup Sampoerna ke kelompok Jurnas?

Menurut SIUP PT Media Nusa Perdana yang diterbitkan Dinas Perindustrian dan Perdagangan Provinsi DKI Jakarta, 5 Maret 2007, nilai modal dan kekayaan bersih perusahaan itu sebesar Rp 3 milyar.

Namun jumlah itu, hanya cukup untuk sebulan menerbitkan harian Jurnal Nasional, yang biaya cetak, gaji, dan biaya‐biaya lainnya kurang lebih Rp 2 milyar sebulan. Berarti biaya penerbitan tahun pertama (2006), sekitar Rp 24 milyar. Tahun kedua (2007), turun menjadi sekitar Rp 20 milyar, setelah koran dan majalah‐majalah terbitan PT Media Nusa Perdana mulai menarik langganan dan iklan.

Tahun ketiga (2008), sekitar Rp 18 milyar, dan tahun keempat (2009) sekitar Rp 15 milyar. Berarti kelompok media cetak ini telah menyedot modal sekitar Rp 90 milyar, mengingat Jurnal Bogor menyewa kantor sendiri di Bogor, dan punya rencana untuk berdiri sendiri, dengan perusahaan penerbitan sendiri.

Selain biaya cetak yang tinggi untuk seluruh Grup Jurnas, pos gaji wartawan kelompok media ini tergolong cukup tinggi. Gaji pertama wartawan Jurnas tahun 2006 mencapai Rp 2,5 juta sebulan, tiga kali lipat gaji wartawan baru Jawa Pos Group.

Kecurigaan masyarakat bahwa keluarga Sampoerna tidak hanya menanam modal di kelompok media Jurnal Nasional, tapi juga di simpul-simpul kampanye Partai Demokrat yang lain, yang juga disalurkan lewat Bank Century, bukan tidak berdasar. Soalnya, Laporan Keuangan PT Bank Century Tbk Untuk Tahun Yang Berakhir Pada Tanggal‐Tanggal 30 Juni 2009 dan 2008 menunjukkan bahwa ada penarikan simpanan fihak ketiga sebesar Rp 5,7 trilyun.

Selain itu, Ringkasan Eksekutif Laporan Hasil Investigasi BPK atas Kasus PT Bank Century Tbk tertanggal 20 November 2009 menunjukkan bahwa Bank Century telah mengalami kerugian karena mengganti deposito milik Boedi Sampoerna yang dipinjamkan atau digelapkan oleh Robert Tantular dan Dewi Tantular sebesar US$ 18 juta – atau sekitar Rp 150 milyar ‐‐ dengan dana yang berasal dari Penempatan Modal Sementara LPS.[bersambung/iaf/ims]







Inilah cuplikan halaman 3 dari buku Membongkar Gurita Cikeas: di Balik Kasus Bank Century, yang ditulis oleh George Junus Aditjondro, diterbitkan oleh Galang Pers, dilaunching Hari Rabu (23/12) di Yogya dan ditarik dari peredaran hari Sabtu (26/12).

Namun ada seorang kerabat Boedi dan Putera Sampoerna, yang tidak pernah memakai nama keluarga mereka. Namanya Sunaryo, seorang kolektor lukisan yang kaya raya, yang mengurusi pabrik kertas Esa Kertas milik keluarga Sampoerna di Singapura yang hampir bangkrut, dan sedang bermasalah dengan Bank Danamon.

Menurut sumber‐sumber penulis, sejak pertama terbit tahun 2006, Sunaryo mengalirkan dana Grup Sampoerna ke PT Media Nusa Perdana, penerbit harian Jurnal Nasional di Jakarta.

Perusahaan itu kini telah berkembang menjadi kelompok media cetak yang cukup besar, dengan harian Jurnal Bogor, majalah bulanan Arti, dan majalah dwimingguan Explo. Boleh jadi, dwimingguan ini merupakan sumber penghasilan utama perusahaan penerbitan ini, karena penuh iklan dari maskapai-maskapai migas dan alat‐alat berat penunjang eksplorasi migas dan mineral.

Secara tidak langsung, dwi‐mingguan Explo dapat dijadikan indikator, sikap Partai Demokrat – dan barangkali juga, Ketua Dewan Pembinanya – terhadap kebijakan‐kebijakan negara di bidang ESDM.

Misalnya dalam pendirian pembangkit listrik tenaga nuklir (PLTN), yang tampaknya sangat dianjurkan oleh Redaksi Explo (lihat tulisan Noor Cholis,“PLTN Muria dan Hantu Chernobyl”, dalam Explo, 16‐31 Oktober 2008, hal. 106, serta berita tentang PLTN Iran yang siap beroperasi, September lalu dalam Explo, 1‐15 April 2009, hal. 79).

Pemimpin Umum harian Jurnas berturut‐turut dipegang oleh Asto Subroto (2006‐2007), Sonny (hanya beberapa bulan), dan N Syamsuddin Ch. Haesy (2007 sampai sekarang). Kedua pemimpin umum pertama bergelar Doktor dari IPB, dan termasuk pendiri Brighton Institute bersama SBY.

Selama tiga tahun pertama, ada dua orang fungsionaris PT Media Nusa Perdana yang diangkat oleh kelompok Sampoerna, yakni Ting Ananta Setiawan, sebagai Pemimpin Perusahaan, dan Rainerius Taufik sebagai Senior Finance Manager atau Manajer Utama Bisnis.

Dalam Surat Izin Usaha Perdagangan (SIUP) Besar PT Media Nusa Perdana, yang dikeluarkan oleh Dinas Perindustrian dan Perdagangan Provinsi DKI Jakartam 5 Maret 2007, namanya tercantum sebagai Direktur merangkap pemilik dan penanggungjawab.

Sementara itu, kesan bahwa perusahaan media ini terkait erat dengan Partai Demokrat tidak dapat dihindarkan, dengan duduknya

Ramadhan Pohan, Ketua Bidang Pusat Informasi BAPPILU Partai Demokrat sebagai Pemimpin Redaksi harian Jurnal Nasional dan majalah Arti, serta Wakil Ketua Dewan Redaksi di majalah Explo.

Sebelum menjabat sebagai Pemimpin Redaksi Jurnas, Ramadhan Pohon merangkap sebagai Direktur Opini Publik & Studi Partai Politik Blora Center, think tank Partai Demokrat yang mengantar SBY ke kursi presidennya yang pertama.

Barangkali ini sebabnya, kalangan pengamat politik di Jakarta mencurigai bahwa dana kelompok Sampoerna juga mengalir ke Blora Center.

Soalnya, sebelum Jurnas terbit, Blora Center menerbitkan tabloid dwi‐mingguan Kabinet, yang menyoroti kinerja anggota‐anggota Kabinet Indonesia Bersatu. Sementara itu, Ramadhan Pohan baru saja terpilih menjadi anggota DPR‐RI dari Fraksi Demokrat, mewakili Dapil VII Jawa Timur (Jurnalnet.com, 25 Febr. 2005; Fajar, 21 Juni 2005; ramadhanpohan.com, 14 Okt. 2009).[bersambung/iaf/ims






Inilah cuplikan halaman 2 dan 3 dari buku Membongkar Gurita Cikeas: di Balik Kasus Bank Century, yang ditulis oleh George Junus Aditjondro, diterbitkan oleh Galang Pers, dilaunching Hari Rabu (23/12) di Yogya dan ditarik dari peredaran hari Sabtu (26/12).

Dari berbagai pemberitaan di media massa dan internet, nama dua orang nasabah terbesar Bank Century telah muncul ke permukaan, yakni Hartati Mudaya, pemimpin kelompok CCM (Central Cipta Mudaya) dan Boedi Sampoerna, salah seorang penerus keluarga Sampoerna, yang menyimpan trilyunan rupiah di bank itu sejak 1998.

Sebelum Bank Century diambilalih oleh LPS, Boedi Sampoerna, seorang cucu pendiri pabrik rokok PT HM Sampoerna, Liem Seng Thee, masih memiliki simpanan sebesar Rp Rp 1.895 milyar di bulan November 2008, sedangkan simpanan Hartati Murdaya sekitar Rp 321 milyar.

Keduanya sama‐sama penyumbang logistik SBY dalam Pemilu lalu. Beberapa depositan kelas kakap lainnya adalah PTPN Jambi, Jamsostek, dan PT Sinar Mas. Boedi Sampoerna sendiri, masih sempat menyelamatkan sebagian depositonya senilai US$ 18 juta, berkat bantuan surat‐surat rekomendasi Kepala Badan Reserse dan Kriminal (Bareskrim) Mabes Polri waktu itu, Komjen (Pol) Susno Duadji, tanggal 7 dan 17 April 2009 (Rusly 2009: Haque, 2009; Inilah.com, 25 Febr 2009; Antara News, 10 Ag. 2009; Vivanews.com, 14 Sept. 2009; Forum Keadilan, 29 Nov. 2009: 14).

BANTUAN GRUP SAMPOERNA UNTUK HARIAN JURNAS

Apa relevansi informasi ini dengan keluarga Cikeas?

Boedi Sampoerna ditengarai menjadi “salah seorang penyokong SBY, termasuk dengan menerbitkan sebuah koran” (Rusly 2009: 48).

Ada juga yang mengatakan” Sampoerna sejak beberapa tahun lalu mendanai penerbitan salah satu koran nasional (Jurnas/Jurnal Nasional) yang menjadi corong politik Partai SBY” (Haque 2009).

Dugaan itu tidak 100% salah, tapi kurang akurat. Untuk itu, kita harus mengenal figur‐figur keluarga Sampoerna yang memutar roda ekonomi keluarga itu, setelah penjualan 97% saham PT HM Sampoerna kepada maskapai transnasional AS, Altria Group, pemilik pabrik rokok AS, Philip Morris, di tahun 2005, seharga sekitar US$ 2 milyar atau Rp 18,5 trilyun.

Liem Seng Tee, yang mendirikan pabrik rokok itu di tahun 1963 bersama istrinya, Tjiang Nio, mewariskan perusahaan itu kepada anaknya, Aga Sampoerna (Liem Swie Ling), yang lahir di Surabaya tahun 1915. Aga Sampoerna kemudian menyerahkan perusahaan itu kepada dua orang anaknya, Boedi Sampoerna, yang lahir di Surabaya, tahun 1937, serta adiknya, Putera Sampoerna, yang lahir di Amsterdam, 13 Oktober 1947 (PDBI 1997: A‐789 – A‐796; Warta Ekonomi, 18‐31 Mei 2009: 43, 49).

Sesudah menjual pabrik rokoknya kepada Philip Morris, Putera menyerahkan pengelolaan perusahaan pada anak bungsunya, Michael Joseph Sampoerna, yang telah mengembangkan holding company keluarga yang baru, Sampoerna Strategic, ke berbagai bidang dan negara.

Misalnya, membeli 20% saham perusahaan asuransi Israel, Harel Investment Ltd dan saham dalam kasino di London, dan berencana membuka sejuta hektar kelapa sawit di Sulawesi, berkongsi dengan kelompok Bosowa milik Aksa Mahmud, ipar Jusuf Kalla (Investor, 21 Ag.‐3 Sept. 2002: 19; Prospektif, 1 April 2005: 48; Globe Asia, Ag. 2008: 52‐53, Ag. 2009: 100‐101).[bersambung/iaf/ims]





Buku ini ditulis oleh George Junus Aditjondro. Judul lengkapnya: Membongkar Gurita Cikeas, di Balik Kasus Bank Century. Dilaunching hari Rabu (23/12) di Yogya. Hari Sabtu (26/12), buku yang diedarkan melalui jaringan Toko Buku Gramedia ini ditarik dari peredaran. Inilah cuplikan halaman pertama buku ini.

“Apakah penyertaan modal sementara yang berjumlah Rp 6,7 triliun itu ada yang bocor atau tidak sesuai dengan peruntukannya? Bahkan berkembang pula desas-desus,rumor, atau tegasnya fitnah, yang mengatakan bahwa sebagian dana itu dirancang untuk dialirkan ke dana kampanye Partai Demokrat dan Capres SBY; fitnah yang sungguh kejam dan sangat menyakitkan….

Sejauh mana para pengelola Bank Century yang melakukan tindakan pidana diproses secara hukum, termasuk bagaimana akhirnya dana penyertaan modal sementara itu dapat kembali ke negara?”

Begitulah sekelumit pertanyaan Presiden Soesilo Bambang Yudhoyono (SBY) dalam pidatonya hari Senin malam, 23 November 2009, menanggapi rekomendasi Tim 8 yang telah dibentuk oleh Presiden sendiri, untuk mengatasi krisis kepercayaan yang meledak di tanah air, setelah dua orang pimpinan Komisi Pemberantasan Korupsi (KPK) – Bibit S Ryanto dan Chandra M Hamzah – ditetapkan sebagai tersangka kasus pencekalan dan penyalahgunaan wewenang, hari Selasa, 15 September, dan ditahan oleh Mabes Polri, hari Kamis, 29 Oktober 2009.

Barangkali, tanpa disadari oleh SBY sendiri, pernyataannya yang begitu defensif dalam menangkal adanya kaitan antara konflik KPK versus Polri dengan skandal Bank Century, bagaikan membuka kotak Pandora yang sebelumnya agak tertutup oleh drama yang dalam bahasa awam menjadi populer dengan julukan drama cicak melawan buaya.

Memang, drama itu, yang begitu menyedot perhatian publik kepada tokoh Anggodo Widjojo, yang dijuluki “calon Kapolri” atau “Kapolri baru”, cukup sukses mengalihkan perhatian publik dari skandal Bank Century, bank gagal yang mendapat suntikan dana sebesar Rp 6,7 trilyun dari Lembaga Penjamin Simpanan (LPS), jauh melebihi Rp 1,3 trilyun yang disetujui DPR‐RI.

Selain merupakan tabir asap alias pengalih isu, penahanan Bibit dan Chandra oleh Mabes Polri dapat ditafsirkan sebagai usaha mencegah KPK membongkar skandal Bank Century itu, bekerjasama dengan Badan Pemeriksa Keuangan (BPK).

Soalnya, investigasi kasus Bank Century itu sudah didorong KPK (Batam Pos, 31 Agust 2009). Sedangkan BPK juga sedang meneliti pengikutsertaan dana publik di bank itu, atas permintaan DPR‐RI pra‐Pemilu 2009.[bersambung/ims]

This 12th Edition of Sir Patrick Moore?s classic book has been completely revised in the light of changes in technology. Not only do these changes include commercially available astronomical telescopes and software, but also what we know and understand about the universe. There are many new photographs and illustrations. Writing in the easy-going style that made him famous as a writer and broadcaster, Sir Patrick introduced astronomy and amateur observing together, so that his reader gets an idea of what he is observing at the same time as how to observe. Almost half the book is Appendices. These are hugely comprehensive and provide hints and tips, as well as data for pretty well every aspect of amateur astronomy. This is probably the only book in which all this information is collected in one place.

Designers of electrical and electronic components have a wide choice of polymers at their disposal - cost is a prime consideration but competition in the market place is imposing ever more stringent specification criteria on the equipment designer who, in turn, is demanding significantly improved performance from his polymer supplier. This report lists the most commonly used polymers with brief notes on their properties. This report seeks to provide an overall picture of the varied use of polymers in the manufacture of electronic components. It has endeavoured to identify trends and future movements of the market. The pattern of polymer usage has changed and material formulations have had to be modified to conform with new European Union (EU) legislation relating to the use of hazardous materials in components. Furthermore there is now far more emphasis on recycling rather than landfill disposal and these are issues covered in the report. This report will be of interest to all those involved in using polymers to produce electronic components and to those who provide the raw materials for the production.

In the 18th century, the pre-modern Judeo-Greco-Christian problem of freedom and determinism is transformed by Kant into the modern problem of the freedom of human agency in the natural and cultural worlds of deterministic structures; it is this version of the freedom and determinism issue which centres the Science and Humanism debates, and thus marks the history of the social sciences. Anthony Giddens is credited with providing the new vocabulary of 'structure' and 'agency' in order to formulate the problem of freedom and determinism in those terms, thus making this formulation fruitful.In this book, Charles R. Varela proposes that Kant originally formulated this problem, and makes a series of wide-ranging and groundbreaking observations based on Kant's metaphysics of realism which enables Varela to propose a solution to the structure/agency problem. Subjects revisited in this book include: 'Giddens' Call'; the stalemate of the social and psychological sciences; the determinist tradition of modern science; and, postmodernism. This breadth of themes, drawn together by Varela with his work on Kant, fully realizes Giddens' principle that human agency is a real causal force. It is Kant's conception of causal power that is the causal force Giddens' has called for. "Science For Humanism: The Recovery of Human Agency" will be of particular interest to students of humanism and therefore realism, Kant and Giddens.

Is Ebonics really a dialect or simply bad English? Do women and men speak differently? Will computers ever really learn human language? Does offensive language harm children? These are only a few of the issues surrounding language that crop up every day. Most of us have very definite opinions on these questions one way or another. Yet as linguist Donna Jo Napoli points out in this short and highly entertaining volume, many of our most deeply held ideas about the nature of language and its role in our lives are either misconceived or influenced by myths and stereotypes.

Napoli provides an entertaining tour through the world of language, examining these and other vexing and controversial language-related questions. Throughout, she encourages and leads the reader to use common-sense and everyday experience rather than preconceived notions or technical linguistic expertise. Both her questions and her conclusions are surprising, sometimes provocative, and always entertaining. This volume is sure to engage both general readers and students of language and linguistics at any level.

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) encompasses a wide variety of tasks that improve a website’s presence on search engines. Maybe you’ve heard a few SEO catch-phrases—meta tags, keyword density, or PageRank—but you don’t know exactly how to tie them all together into a meaningful package. That’s where this book comes in!

This book addresses many challenging topics related to the NoC research area. It starts by studying 3D NoC architectures and progresses to a discussion of NoC resource allocation, processor traffic modeling, and formal verification. NoC protocols are examined at different layers of abstraction. Also, several emerging research issues in NoC are highlighted in this book, such as NoC Quality of Service (QoS), testing and verification methodologies, NoC security requirements, and real-time monitoring. The book also tackles power and energy issues in NoC-based designs, as power constraints are currently considered among the bottlenecks that limit embedding more processing elements on a single chip.
