Saco-Indonesia.com - Selama berada di Indonesia, Miss Universe 2013 Gabriela Isler mengaku tertarik dengan berbagai makanan dan minuman khas negeri ini. Kepada Menteri Pariwisata dan Ekonomi Kreatif Mari Elka Pangestu ia sempat bertanya mengenai makanan penutup yang khas dari Indonesia dan direkomendasikan mencoba cendol.
"Indonesia punya banyak makanan penutup yang sangat enak dan manis. Salah satunya itu cendol. Kamu harus mencoba cendol nanti ya," kata Mari Elka dalam sebuah kesempatan kepada Molly, sapaan akrab Gabriela.
Perempuan asli Venezuela ini benar-benar dibuat penasaran dengan deskripsi Mari tentang cendol. Menurut keterangan yang diberikan Putri Kuswisnu Wardhani, Ketua Yayasan Puteri Indonesia kepada Kompas Female, Molly akhirnya mencoba minuman dengan bahan dasar tepung beras berwarna hijau dengan tambahan gula merah ini.
"Iya saya sudah mencoba cendol dan itu rasanya enak sekali. Saya juga suka bakpia cokelat," ungkap Molly saat melakukan kunjungan ke kantor Mustika Ratu, Rabu (5/2/2014) lalu. Selain mencoba cendol, ia juga sudah menyantap aneka buah-buahan seperti rambutan, salak, dan juga buah naga.
Molly memang mengaku bahwa ia sangat menyukai aneka makanan pencuci mulut, buah-buahan dan makanan manis lainnya. Hanya saja ia tidak suka menyantap makanan yang pedas-pedas.
Putri menambahkan bahwa Molly juga menyukai hidangan Nasi Bali yang gurih. "Pada dasarnya dia suka semua makanan tradisional Indonesia, asalkan enggak pedas. Dia orangnya tidak pilih-pilih makanan," puji Putri.

Wakil Polresta Kota Banda Aceh, AKBP Sugeng Hadi Sutrisno juga mengatakan kantor Partai Aceh Kecamatan Lhueng Bata yang terkena ledakan granat akan dijaga oleh pihak kepolisian sebanyak satu regu yaitu 10 personel polisi. Penjagaan ini telah dilakukan karena penyidikan di lokasi akan dilanjutkan kembali hari ini.
"Ada satu regu yang menjaga kantor malam (Selasa) ini, karena besok akan dilanjutkan penyidikan di lokasi," kata Sugeng Hadi Sutrisno.
Terkait dengan motif peledakan, Sugeng juga masih tidak berkomentar. Dia juga meminta semua pihak menunggu kepolisian melakukan penyidikan. Tim Gegana juga sedang menyelidiki jenis bahan peledak yang digunakan.
Kendati demikian, Sugeng juga mengatakan daya ledak benda yang diduga granat itu telah mencapai 200 meter. "Besar ledakannya, namun belum bisa kita simpulkan apakah rakitan atau asli," tukasnya.
Dikatakannya, pihak kepolisian saat ini juga sedang memeriksa beberapa orang saksi. Terutama saksi yang berada di dalam kantor saat kejadian yaitu sebanyak 5 orang. Mereka adalah Afifuddin (47), Mukhtar (30), Ruslan (30), Rusdi (40) dan Dedi Isnaldi (28). Semuanya warga kota Banda Aceh.
Orang-orang yang diundang Allah Ta’ala untuk berhaji dan berumrah diberikan kesempatan untuk melihat Rumah Allah, memegangnya atau bahkan menciumnya. Yang telah melihat dan memegang menjadi tahu persis bahwa ukuran rumah Allah Ta’ala tidak besar dan bukan terbuat dari emas. Padahal Dia kuasa untuk membuat rumah dari emas yang membuat manusia terpesona dan berduyun-duyun datang untuk melihatnya.
Rumah itu tidak besar dan bukan terbuat dari emas, namun di hari ini satu-satunya tempat yang tidak pernah sepi dari kunjungan manusia adalah Rumah Allah itu. Secara lahiriah rumah itu sederhana, tetapi secara batiniah rumah itu sangat mewah. Tidak ada yang lebih indah di sisi Allah melebihi orang bertakwa. Pusaran manusia takwa yang tawaf, shalat atau menatap Ka’bah adalah hiasan termewah bagi Ka’bah. Dan di dasar Ka’bah itu tertanam batu-batu yang disusun oleh tangan orang yang lebih mengutamakan Allah di atas segala sesuatu, Nabi Ibrahim as. Fondasi penyanggah itulah permata terindah bagi Ka’bah.
Sebelum Allah Ta’ala memilih Nabi Ibrahim as menjadi Imam bagi segenap manusia dan memerintahkannya untuk menegakkan kembali fondasi Baitullah, Allah menguji beliau dengan beberapa perintah dan larangan. Dari ujian itu terlihat Ibrahim as lebih mengutamakan Allah swt dibandingkan apa pun juga.
Paling tidak ada tiga ujian besar yang membuktikan hal ini, yaitu: ujian dibakar hidup-hidup, ujian menempatkan keluarga di tempat yang tidak ada air dan kehidupan sama sekali; dan ujian menyembelih puteranya dengan tangannya sendiri.
Ujian pertama, dibakar hidup-hidup.
Imam Ibnu Katsir dalam Kitab Qishash al-Anbiyâ menceritakan bahwa Nabi Ibrahim as dilahirkan dan dibesarkan di Babilonia. Di hari itu hanya ada tiga orang saja yang menyembah Allah swt yaitu: Ibrahim as, istrinya Sarah dan keponakannya Luth.
Orang-orang Babilonia pada waktu itu menyembah patung, bintang, bulan dan matahari. Nabi Ibrahim as mengajak kaumnya untuk meninggalkan sesembahan mereka dan hanya menyembah Allah saja. Kaumnya menolak.
Suatu hari ketika kaumya mengadakan perayaan hari besar agama mereka Ibrahim as menghancurkan berhala-berhala kecil yang ada di dalam kuil mereka dan menyisakan berhala yang terbesar. Ketika mereka kembali ke kuil, mereka mendapati tuhan-tuhan mereka sudah hancur berantakan. Maka tuduhan pun jatuh kepada Ibrahim as karena ia pernah mengancam akan melakukan makar terhadap tuhan-tuhan orang Babilonia itu. Al-Quran menceritakan dialog tersebut:
Mereka bertanya: “Apakah kamu, yang melakukan perbuatan ini terhadap tuhan-tuhan kami, Hai Ibrahim?”
Ibrahim menjawab: “Justru patung yang besar itulah yang melakukannya. Karena itu tanyakan kepada berhala-berhala(yang sudah hancur) itu, jika mereka dapat berbicara”.(QS. Al-Anbiya:62-63)
Terhenyaklah para penyembah berhala itu karena berhala-berhala yang selama ini mereka agungkan bukan saja tidak bisa membela diri bahkan tidak bisa berkata-kata sama sekali.
Bukannya insyaf bahkan mereka bertambah marah.
Mereka berkata: “Bakarlah dia dan bantulah tuhan-tuhan kamu, jika kamu benar-benar hendak bertindak.”(QS.Al-Anbiya: 68)
Maka mereka pun bergegas hendak membakar Nabi Ibrahim as. Di sinilah datang ujian bagi beliau. Hanya ada dua pilihan, yaitu tetap berpegang teguh pada agama tauhid dengan konsekuensi dibakar hidup-hidup. Atau, bebas dari pembakaran asalkan melepaskan agama tauhid. Nabi Ibrahim memilih lebih baik dibakar.
Perlu diketahui bahwa tidak ada jaminan sebelumnya dari Allah bahwa Nabi Ibrahim as tidak mempan di bakar. Banyak Nabi lain yang terbunuh di jalan Allah, seperti Nabi Zakariya as dan Yahya as. Ucapan terakhir dari lisannya adalah ‘Cukup Allah bagiku. Dialah sebaik-baik pelindung’.
Dari Ibnu ‘Abbas ra, ia berkata,” Ucapan terakhir yang dikatakan oleh Ibrahim ketika dilemparkan ke dalam api adalah:
‘Cukuplah Allah bagiku dan Dia lah sebaik-baik pelindung’ .” (HR. Bukhari)
Datanglah pertolongan Allah swt.
Kami berfirman: “Hai api menjadi dinginlah, dan menjadi keselamatanlah bagi Ibrahim.” (QS.Al-Anbiya: 69)
Allah Ta’ala menyelamatkannya dari api.
Ujian kedua, menempatkan keluarga di tempat yang tidak ada air dan kehidupan sama sekali.
Nabi Ibrahim as diperintahkan Allah swt untuk menempatkan istrinya Hajar dan puteranya Ismail di lembah Makkah yang pada waktu itu tidak ada air dan tumbuhan sama sekali. Resiko pelaksanaan perintah ini adalah kematian istri dan puteranya yang masih bayi itu oleh keganasan alam. Setelah sampai di lembah Makkah, Ibrahim pun bermaksud kembali ke Baitul Maqdis. Ketika akan ditinggalkan Hajar bertanya mengapa Ibrahim as meninggalkan mereka, namun Ibrahim as terus berjalan tanpa menoleh dan tidak dijawab. Akhirnya Hajar bertanya,” Apakah Allah memerintahkannya padamu?” Ibrahim as menjawab,” Ya.” Mendengar jawaban tersebut Hajar berkata,” Kalau begitu pastilah Dia tidak menyia-nyiakan kami.” Lalu Hajar pun menggendong puteranya Isama’il berjalan menuruni lereng menuju perut lembah.
Nabi Ibrahim as terus berjalan, ketika sampai di al-Tsaniyyah, di tempat yang tidak terlihat oleh istrinya Nabi Ibrahim as menghadap ke arah perut lembah Mekkah dan berdoa dengan munajat yang sangat terkenal yang Allah abadikan dalam Surat Ibrahim:
” Wahai Tuhan kami, sesungguhnya aku telah menempatkan sebahagian keturunanku di lembah yang tidak mempunyai tumbuhan sama sekali di dekat rumah-Mu yang dimuliakan, Ya Tuhan kami (yang demikian itu) agar mereka mendirikan shalat, maka jadikanlah hati sebagian manusia cenderung kepada mereka dan berikanlah rezeki kepada mereka berupa buah-buahan, mudah-mudahan mereka bersyukur.” (QS. 14:37)
Setelah berdoa dan menyerahkan keluarganya kepada Allah Ta’ala Ibrahim as pun meninggalkan lembah Makkah dan kembali ke Baitul Maqdis, Palestina.
Allah pun menyelamatkan istri dan anaknya.
Ujian ketiga, perintah menyembelih puteranya Ismail dengan tangannya sendiri.
Bila disuruh memilih, lebih baik bagi seorang ayah untuk memotong lehernya sendiri dibandingkan memotong leher anaknya. Kalau pun harus membunuh anak, lebih ringan dengan meminjam tangan orang lain bukan dengan tangan sendiri. Tetapi Allah Ta’ala memerintahkan menyembelih puteranya dengan tangan sendiri.
Ketika isyarat mimpi itu datang, maka Nabi Ibrahim as bertanya kepada puteranya Isma’il yang berumur kira-kira 12 tahun. Al-Quran menceritakan:
Maka tatkala anak itu sampai pada umur sanggup berusaha bersama Ibrahim, Ibrahim berkata: “Hai anakku Sesungguhnya aku melihat dalam mimpi bahwa aku menyembelihmu. Maka fikirkanlah apa pendapatmu!” ia menjawab: “Hai bapakku, kerjakanlah apa yang diperintahkan kepadamu; insya Allah kamu akan mendapatiku termasuk orang-orang yang sabar.”(QS. Ash-Shaffat: 102)
Ketika keduanya telah berserah diri kepada Allah, Ismail telah dibaringkan di atas pelipisnya, pisau pun menempel dilehernya, kalau tidak ada pembatalan dari Allah maka anak itu pasti disembelih oleh Ibrahim as. Ketika itulah Allah al-Rahîm membatalkan penyembelihan tersebut.dan menggantikan Ismail dengan seekor kibasy yang besar.
Tiga ujian yang luar biasa! Setelah terlihat betapa Nabi Ibrahim lebih mengutamakan Allah Ta’ala dibandingkan apa pun juga maka Allah memilihnya menjadi pemimpin bagi umat manusia dan memerintahkannya untuk mendirikan kembali Rumah Allah Ta’ala.
Dengan tangan ketakwaannya ia bersama puternya Isma’il as meletakkan fondasi Ka’bah dan menegakkan bangunan Rumah Allah. Sampai hari kiamat nanti batu-batu yang ditanam Ibrahim as di fondasi Ka’bah akan tetap tertancap di sana.
Di sana, Bumi Makkah dan Baitullahnya merekam getaran cinta dan pengorbanan Nabi Ibrahim as yang telah memberikan yang terbaik bagi Allah Ta’ala sebagai bukti ketakwaannya.
Di sini, di hari ini, keadaannya jauh berbeda, kebanyakan kita hanya memberikan ‘sisa-sisa’ untuk Allah, sisa harta, sisa tenaga, sisa waktu, sisa hati dan sisa pikiran padahal Allah swt telah memberikan segala yang terbaik untuk kita. kita bergantung kepada Allah untuk setiap butir nasi yang kita makan, untuk setiap tetes air yang kita minum, untuk setiap desah nafas, untuk setiap detak jantung dan untuk setiap denyut kehidupan.
Setiap kita sedang membangun ketakwaan kepada Allah di dalam hati kita. Rumah yang dibangun dengan puing-puing sisa cepat atau lambat hanya akan menjadi tumpukan puing-puing. Demikian pula ketakwaan yang dibangun dengan puing-puing sisa harta, sisa tenaga, sisa waktu, sisa hati dan sisa fikiran cepat atau lambat hanya kaan menjadi puing-puing ketakwaan. Ketakwaan sejati hanya dapat ditegakkan dengan ‘mengutamakan Allah di atas segala sesuatu’.

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.Taiwan party leader affirms eventual reunion with China | PAKET UMROH BULAN JANUARI 2016

WASHINGTON — The last three men to win the Republican nomination have been the prosperous son of a president (George W. Bush), a senator who could not recall how many homes his family owned (John McCain of Arizona; it was seven) and a private equity executive worth an estimated $200 million (Mitt Romney).
The candidates hoping to be the party’s nominee in 2016 are trying to create a very different set of associations. On Sunday, Ben Carson, a retired neurosurgeon, joined the presidential field.
Senator Marco Rubio of Florida praises his parents, a bartender and a Kmart stock clerk, as he urges audiences not to forget “the workers in our hotel kitchens, the landscaping crews in our neighborhoods, the late-night janitorial staff that clean our offices.”
Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin, a preacher’s son, posts on Twitter about his ham-and-cheese sandwiches and boasts of his coupon-clipping frugality. His $1 Kohl’s sweater has become a campaign celebrity in its own right.
Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky laments the existence of “two Americas,” borrowing the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s phrase to describe economically and racially troubled communities like Ferguson, Mo., and Detroit.
“Some say, ‘But Democrats care more about the poor,’ ” Mr. Paul likes to say. “If that’s true, why is black unemployment still twice white unemployment? Why has household income declined by $3,500 over the past six years?”
We are in the midst of the Empathy Primary — the rhetorical battleground shaping the Republican presidential field of 2016.
Harmed by the perception that they favor the wealthy at the expense of middle-of-the-road Americans, the party’s contenders are each trying their hardest to get across what the elder George Bush once inelegantly told recession-battered voters in 1992: “Message: I care.”
Their ability to do so — less bluntly, more sincerely — could prove decisive in an election year when power, privilege and family connections will loom large for both parties.
Questions of understanding and compassion cost Republicans in the last election. Mr. Romney, who memorably dismissed the “47 percent” of Americans as freeloaders, lost to President Obama by 63 percentage points among voters who cast their ballots for the candidate who “cares about people like me,” according to exit polls.
And a Pew poll from February showed that people still believe Republicans are indifferent to working Americans: 54 percent said the Republican Party does not care about the middle class.
That taint of callousness explains why Senator Ted Cruz of Texas declared last week that Republicans “are and should be the party of the 47 percent” — and why another son of a president, Jeb Bush, has made economic opportunity the centerpiece of his message.
With his pedigree and considerable wealth — since he left the Florida governor’s office almost a decade ago he has earned millions of dollars sitting on corporate boards and advising banks — Mr. Bush probably has the most complicated task making the argument to voters that he understands their concerns.
On a visit last week to Puerto Rico, Mr. Bush sounded every bit the populist, railing against “elites” who have stifled economic growth and innovation. In the kind of economy he envisions leading, he said: “We wouldn’t have the middle being squeezed. People in poverty would have a chance to rise up. And the social strains that exist — because the haves and have-nots is the big debate in our country today — would subside.”
Republicans’ emphasis on poorer and working-class Americans now represents a shift from the party’s longstanding focus on business owners and “job creators” as the drivers of economic opportunity.
This is intentional, Republican operatives said.
In the last presidential election, Republicans rushed to defend business owners against what they saw as hostility by Democrats to successful, wealthy entrepreneurs.
“Part of what you had was a reaction to the Democrats’ dehumanization of business owners: ‘Oh, you think you started your plumbing company? No you didn’t,’ ” said Grover Norquist, the conservative activist and president of Americans for Tax Reform.
But now, Mr. Norquist said, Republicans should move past that. “Focus on the people in the room who know someone who couldn’t get a job, or a promotion, or a raise because taxes are too high or regulations eat up companies’ time,” he said. “The rich guy can take care of himself.”
Democrats argue that the public will ultimately see through such an approach because Republican positions like opposing a minimum-wage increase and giving private banks a larger role in student loans would hurt working Americans.
“If Republican candidates are just repeating the same tired policies, I’m not sure that smiling while saying it is going to be enough,” said Guy Cecil, a Democratic strategist who is joining a “super PAC” working on behalf of Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Republicans have already attacked Mrs. Clinton over the wealth and power she and her husband have accumulated, caricaturing her as an out-of-touch multimillionaire who earns hundreds of thousands of dollars per speech and has not driven a car since 1996.
Mr. Walker hit this theme recently on Fox News, pointing to Mrs. Clinton’s lucrative book deals and her multiple residences. “This is not someone who is connected with everyday Americans,” he said. His own net worth, according to The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, is less than a half-million dollars; Mr. Walker also owes tens of thousands of dollars on his credit cards.
But showing off a cheap sweater or boasting of a bootstraps family background not only helps draw a contrast with Mrs. Clinton’s latter-day affluence, it is also an implicit argument against Mr. Bush.
Mr. Walker, who featured a 1998 Saturn with more than 100,000 miles on the odometer in a 2010 campaign ad during his first run for governor, likes to talk about flipping burgers at McDonald’s as a young person. His mother, he has said, grew up on a farm with no indoor plumbing until she was in high school.
Mr. Rubio, among the least wealthy members of the Senate, with an estimated net worth of around a half-million dollars, uses his working-class upbringing as evidence of the “exceptionalism” of America, “where even the son of a bartender and a maid can have the same dreams and the same future as those who come from power and privilege.”
Mr. Cruz alludes to his family’s dysfunction — his parents, he says, were heavy drinkers — and recounts his father’s tale of fleeing Cuba with $100 sewn into his underwear.
Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey notes that his father paid his way through college working nights at an ice cream plant.
But sometimes the attempts at projecting authenticity can seem forced. Mr. Christie recently found himself on the defensive after telling a New Hampshire audience, “I don’t consider myself a wealthy man.” Tax returns showed that he and his wife, a longtime Wall Street executive, earned nearly $700,000 in 2013.
The story of success against the odds is a political classic, even if it is one the Republican Party has not been able to tell for a long time. Ronald Reagan liked to say that while he had not been born on the wrong side of the tracks, he could always hear the whistle. Richard Nixon was fond of reminding voters how he was born in a house his father had built.
“Probably the idea that is most attractive to an average voter, and an idea that both Republicans and Democrats try to craft into their messages, is this idea that you can rise from nothing,” said Charles C. W. Cooke, a writer for National Review.
There is a certain delight Republicans take in turning that message to their advantage now.
“That’s what Obama did with Hillary,” Mr. Cooke said. “He acknowledged it openly: ‘This is ridiculous. Look at me, this one-term senator with dark skin and all of America’s unsolved racial problems, running against the wife of the last Democratic president.”G.O.P.

Since a white police officer, Darren Wilson fatally shot unarmed black teenager, Michael Brown, in a confrontation last August in Ferguson, Mo., there have been many other cases in which the police have shot and killed suspects, some of them unarmed. Mr. Brown's death set off protests throughout the country, pushing law enforcement into the spotlight and sparking a public debate on police tactics. Here is a selection of police shootings that have been reported by news organizations since Mr. Brown's death. In some cases, investigations are continuing.

Hockey is not exactly known as a city game, but played on roller skates, it once held sway as the sport of choice in many New York neighborhoods.
“City kids had no rinks, no ice, but they would do anything to play hockey,” said Edward Moffett, former director of the Long Island City Y.M.C.A. Roller Hockey League, in Queens, whose games were played in city playgrounds going back to the 1940s.
From the 1960s through the 1980s, the league had more than 60 teams, he said. Players included the Mullen brothers of Hell’s Kitchen and Dan Dorion of Astoria, Queens, who would later play on ice for the National Hockey League.
One street legend from the heyday of New York roller hockey was Craig Allen, who lived in the Woodside Houses projects and became one of the city’s hardest hitters and top scorers.
“Craig was a warrior, one of the best roller hockey players in the city in the ’70s,” said Dave Garmendia, 60, a retired New York police officer who grew up playing with Mr. Allen. “His teammates loved him and his opponents feared him.”
Young Craig took up hockey on the streets of Queens in the 1960s, playing pickup games between sewer covers, wearing steel-wheeled skates clamped onto school shoes and using a roll of electrical tape as the puck.
His skill and ferocity drew attention, Mr. Garmendia said, but so did his skin color. He was black, in a sport made up almost entirely by white players.
“Roller hockey was a white kid’s game, plain and simple, but Craig broke the color barrier,” Mr. Garmendia said. “We used to say Craig did more for race relations than the N.A.A.C.P.”
Mr. Allen went on to coach and referee roller hockey in New York before moving several years ago to South Carolina. But he continued to organize an annual alumni game at Dutch Kills Playground in Long Island City, the same site that held the local championship games.
The reunion this year was on Saturday, but Mr. Allen never made it. On April 26, just before boarding the bus to New York, he died of an asthma attack at age 61.
Word of his death spread rapidly among hundreds of his old hockey colleagues who resolved to continue with the event, now renamed the Craig Allen Memorial Roller Hockey Reunion.
The turnout on Saturday was the largest ever, with players pulling on their old equipment, choosing sides and taking once again to the rink of cracked blacktop with faded lines and circles. They wore no helmets, although one player wore a fedora.
Another, Vinnie Juliano, 77, of Long Island City, wore his hearing aids, along with his 50-year-old taped-up quads, or four-wheeled skates with a leather boot. Many players here never converted to in-line skates, and neither did Mr. Allen, whose photograph appeared on a poster hanging behind the players’ bench.
“I’m seeing people walking by wondering why all these rusty, grizzly old guys are here playing hockey,” one player, Tommy Dominguez, said. “We’re here for Craig, and let me tell you, these old guys still play hard.”
Everyone seemed to have a Craig Allen story, from his earliest teams at Public School 151 to the Bryant Rangers, the Woodside Wings, the Woodside Blues and more.
Mr. Allen, who became a yellow-cab driver, was always recruiting new talent. He gained the nickname Cabby for his habit of stopping at playgrounds all over the city to scout players.
Teams were organized around neighborhoods and churches, and often sponsored by local bars. Mr. Allen, for one, played for bars, including Garry Owen’s and on the Fiddler’s Green Jokers team in Inwood, Manhattan.
Play was tough and fights were frequent.
“We were basically street gangs on skates,” said Steve Rogg, 56, a mail clerk who grew up in Jackson Heights, Queens, and who on Saturday wore his Riedell Classic quads from 1972. “If another team caught up with you the night before a game, they tossed you a beating so you couldn’t play the next day.”
Mr. Garmendia said Mr. Allen’s skin color provoked many fights.
“When we’d go to some ignorant neighborhoods, a lot of players would use slurs,” Mr. Garmendia said, recalling a game in Ozone Park, Queens, where local fans parked motorcycles in a lineup next to the blacktop and taunted Mr. Allen. Mr. Garmendia said he checked a player into the motorcycles, “and the bikes went down like dominoes, which started a serious brawl.”
A group of fans at a game in Brooklyn once stuck a pole through the rink fence as Mr. Allen skated by and broke his jaw, Mr. Garmendia said, adding that carloads of reinforcements soon arrived to defend Mr. Allen.
And at another racially incited brawl, the police responded with six patrol cars and a helicopter.
Before play began on Saturday, the players gathered at center rink to honor Mr. Allen. Billy Barnwell, 59, of Woodside, recalled once how an all-white, all-star squad snubbed Mr. Allen by playing him third string. He scored seven goals in the first game and made first string immediately.
“He’d always hear racial stuff before the game, and I’d ask him, ‘How do you put up with that?’” Mr. Barnwell recalled. “Craig would say, ‘We’ll take care of it,’ and by the end of the game, he’d win guys over. They’d say, ‘This guy’s good.’”Tribute for a Roller Hockey Warrior | PAKET UMROH BULAN JANUARI 2016
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?”As Vice Moves More to TV, It Tries to Keep Brash Voice | PAKET UMROH BULAN JANUARI 2016
