Satu Dari Belasan Pencuri Motor Ditembak

Dua kelompok spesialis pencurian motor (ranmor) asal Lampung dan Palembang telah dibekuk oleh petugas Polres Bogor. Satu pelaku berhasil dilumpuhkan, karena berusaha kabur saat petugas mengepung kontrakannya di Gunung Putri Bogor.

Kabag Ops Polres Bogor, Kompol Hendra Gunawan juga mengatakan, 15 pelaku asal dua kelompok ini selalu memakai senjata tajam dan pistol saat beraksi. “Ada beberapa korban yang dilukai. Bahkan ada yang pernah ditembak anggota dua kelompok ini,” katanya.

Menurut dia, kelompok ini, juga sudah lebih dari seratus kali beraksi. Hal ini telah berdasarkan bukti disitaya 1 plat nomor motor, 1 golok besar, 1 golok kecil, 1 tang, 4 pasang spion, 1 gerinda bersama mata gerinda, 10 HP BlackBerry, 1 kunci kontak mobil, 1 kunci leter T bersama 10 anak kunci, uang tunai Rp5 juta, 15 kunci motor, 4 cap samsat Polda Jabar, 30 STNK motor asli dan obeng.

“Ini hasil operasi pengejaran curanmor tiga hari di 4 titik yakni, Gunung Putri, Ciawi, Babakan Madang dan Bojonggede. Semuanya ada 15 tersangka dengan barang bukti sebanyak 9 motor,” papar Hendra. Motor hasil curian lalu jual ke Sukabumi seharga Rp5 juta perunit.

“Dalam penangkapan ini, kami tidak temukan pistol. Yang kami amankan hanya senjata tajam. Kami juga masih harus dalami senjata api darimana didapat dan sekarang disimpan dimana,” ungkapnya. Menurut Kompol Hendra, tiga pelaku terakhir yang ditangkap Selasa (11/3) malam di Bojonggede, ternyata terkait penembakan Brigadir Nurul Afandi, anggota serse Polsek Klapanunggal.

Ricuh Akibat Pembongkaran Stasiun UI

Penggusuran kios pedagang di Stasiun Universitas Indonesia hari ini, Rabu, 29 Mei 2013, diwarnai ketegangan. Ratusan petugas penggusuran dari PT Kereta Api Indonesia ditahan oleh aksi protes pedagang dan mahasiswa UI.

Awalnya, penggusuran yang dilakukan mulai pukul 07.30 ini berjalan tanpa kendala. Ribuan petugas dan polisi langsung menguasai stasiun dan melakukan penggusuran kios di atas peron dan kios di bawah peron. (Pedagang di Stasiun UI Ditertibkan Hari Ini)

"Kami melakukan protes damai karena ini bukan penataan, tapi penggusuran, maknanya beda," kata Ketua BEM UI Ali Abdillah di lokasi, Rabu, 29 Mei 2013. Ali mengatakan, mereka akan bertahan di toko yang belum tergusur di sisi timur rel arah Jakarta.

Ketegangan berawal saat petugas hendak merobohkan kios di bawah stasiun sisi timur rel, yang masih dijadikan tempat bertahan oleh para mahasiswa. Tiba-tiba para petugas berteriak karena mendapat lemparan batu. Petugas pun membalas lemparan batu ke arah mahasiswa.

"Polisi harus tanggung jawab, bagaimana ini?" kata seorang mahasiswa yang mengadu kepada polisi saat kejadian itu.

Lempar- lemparan batu terjadi sekitar 10 menit. Beruntung, ratusan polisi yang mengamankan penggusuran langsung menguasai lokasi dan memisahkan mahasiswa dan petugas. Polisi akhirnya mengambil keputusan agar mahasiswa dan selain petugas keluar dari lokasi penggusuran.

"Rekan-rekan, selain petugas, semuanya keluar dari lokasi," kata Kepala Bagian Operasional Polresta Depok, Komisaris Suratno, di lokasi. Petugas pun langsung mensterilkan lokasi.

Mahasiswa kemudian mundur dari kios yang hendak digusur dan menyediakan diri untuk menuntut PT KAI secara hukum. "Kami akan tempuh jalur hukum," kata Ali Abdillah.

Seperti diketahui, PT Kereta Api Indonesia akan membersihkan stasiun tersebut dari pedagang guna menerapkan sistem tiket elektronik (e- ticketing) hari ini, Rabu, 29 Mei 2013. Apabila lahan stasiun steril dari pedagang, PT KAI akan membuat gate e-ticketing.

Sekitar 1.500 petugas gabungan PT KAI dan Polresta Depok ikut dalam penggusuran ini. Adapun kios yang akan digusur sekitar 80 kios, yaitu 50 di atas peron dan 30 kios berada di sisi kiri dan kanan rel setelah Stasiun UI. Sampai saat ini, penertiban masih berlangsung.

Tantangan untuk Dokter, Dengan Hadirnya Alat Medis Canggih

Medan, Saco-Indonesia.com - Dengan Penyediaan alat medis berteknologi canggih, utamanya alat radiologi, di rumah sakit sebenarnya menjadi tantangan untuk dokter. Alat medis secanggih apa pun takkan memberikan hasil maksimal, terutama dalam penegakkan diagnosis, bila tak dibarengi dengan dokter yang mumpuni baik secara pengetahuan medis maupun sikap melayani berfokus pada kepentingan bahkan kepuasan pasien.

Teguh Purwanto, Head of Imaging Systems Philips Healthcare mengatakan teknologi canggih menjadi tantangan bukan untuk pasien tapi dokter. Dalam hal ini, dokter klinis yang merujuk pemeriksaan radiologi, serta dokter radiologi yang menentukan pemeriksaan dan membaca hasil.

"Pelanggan alat radiologi, pertama dokter baru pasien. Dokter harus membekali pengetahuan klinis berhubungan dengan alat," jelas Teguh saat kunjungan media ke Rumah Sakit Colombia Asia, Medan, Rabu (5/2/2014).

Hal ini diakui dokter spesialis radiologi, Buter Samin. Menurutnya kalangan dokter sama seperti profesional lainnya, rutin setiap setahun sekali, menambah pengetahuan melalui berbagai seminar di dalam dan luar negeri.

Spesialis penyakit dalam, yang juga Chief of Medical Services Rumah Sakit Colombia Asia Medan, Sabar Petrus Sembiring, mengatakan untuk bisa memenuhi kebutuhan pengetahuan akan inovasi terkini alat medis, dokter harus melengkapi kemampuannya. Kesiapan klinisi menjadi penting untuk mendukung penggunaan alat medis tercanggih.

"Teknologi yang baik harus didukung kelengkapan, kesiapan dengan perkembangan teknologi," tuturnya pada kesempatan yang sama.

Jumlah spesialis atau konsultan, juga merupakan faktor penting dalam perkembangan teknologi  medis. Dalam pemeriksaan radiologi dengan alat tercanggih misalnya, saat hasil imaging diketahui, pada kasus yang terbilang rumit keberadaan konsultan medis yang lengkap dengan berbagai spesialisasi akan mendukung diagnosis juga tindakan menjadi lebih tepat, akurat, cepat.

"Pada kasus rumit, butuh subdisiplin ilmu dan dokter tidak one man show," imbuh Sabar.

Menurutnya, alat canggih tanpa sumber daya manusia yang baik tidak akan memberikan hasil maksimal. Ketersediaan alat medis cangguh juga perlu didukung komunikasi dokter yang baik, sehingga pasien terpenuhi kebutuhannya.

Obat Baru Malaria Ditemukan

SURABAYA, Saco-Indonesia.com- Pusat Riset Penyakit Tropis Universitas Airlangga Surabaya menemukan senyawa aktif pada ekstrak batang pohon cempedak (Artocarpus champeden) dan sambiloto (Andrographis paniculata). Pada uji klinis, ekstrak cempedak dapat menyembuhkan pasien malaria dalam waktu lima hari pengobatan.

Demikian disampaikan Aty Widyawaruyanti selaku Ketua Tim Riset Obat Antimalaria di Institut Penyakit Tropis Universitas Airlangga, Kamis (16/5/2013), di Surabaya. Penjelasan ini disampaikan saat kunjungan wartawan yang diadakan Kementrian Riset dan Teknologi.

Dalam penelitian, jelas Aty yang juga peneliti dari Fakultas Farmasi Unair, diketahui beberapa senyawa aktif flavonoid terutama heteroflavanon C diketahui dpt melumpuhkan parasit malaria. "Uji klinis saat ini telah sampai pada fase kedua, yaitu pemberian pada pasien malaria," ujar Aty.

Pengujian tahap kedua melibatkan 60 pasien. Pada pengobatan diberika dosis 2 tablet sehari. Setelah beberapa hari pasien tidak demam dan menggigil. Pada hari kelima pasien sembuh.

Untuk dapat diproduksi dan dipasarkan, masih diperlukan dua tahap lagi dengan melibatkan lebih banyak pasien, " urainya. Obat ini juga harus ditinjau oleh Badan Pengawasan Obat dan Makanan.

Cempedak sebagai obat malaria yang diteliti sejak tahun 2001 kini telah memperoleh paten untuk proses ekstraksi dan isolasi senyawa aktif. Pendaftaran patennya sebagai obat antimalaria. Bahan herbal yang dinamai Artoner ini dikemas dalam bentuk kapsul untuk ujicoba kepada pasien.

"Produk riset farmasi ini, meski baru 70 persen menjalani tahap uji klinik sudah diminati oleh sebuah industri farmasi untuk diproduksi," tambah Kepala Laboratorium fitokimia herbal ITD, Achmad Fuad Hafid.

Riset lain

Penelitian cempedak untuk obat malaria, lanjut Aty, diilhami penggunaannya secara tradisional di Kalimantan untuk obat malaria dan larutan gosok pencegah gigitan nyamuk. Selain cempedak riset juga dilakukan pada tanaman serumpun yaitu nangka, keluwih, dan sukun. Namun khasiatnya tak sebaik cempedak.

Sementara itu riset yang dilakukan pada tanaman herbal sambiloto juga menemukan senyawa antimalaria yaitu Androglafolida. Namun untuk tanaman herbal yang selama ini dikonsumsi sebagai jamu itu belum sampai ke uji klinik.

Hati-hati, kurang vitamin D sebabkan kerusakan pada otak!

Saco-Indonesia.com - Vitamin D tak hanya baik untuk jantung dan tulang , tetapi juga penting untuk kesehatan organ dan jaringan dalam tubuh, terutama untuk kesehatan otak. Sebuah penelitian terbaru mengungkap bahwa kekurangan vitamin D bisa menyebabkan kerusakan pada otak.

Penelitian yang dilakukan oleh University of Kentucky menunjukkan bahwa tikus yang diberikan makanan rendah vitamin D secara berkala akan mengalami kerusakan pada oraknya. Tikus-tikus eksperimen itu juga mengalami penurunan kemampuan kognitif, ingatan, serta kemampuan untuk belajar.

"Biasanya kekurangan vitamin D terjadi pada manula atau pada orang berusia pertengahan. Vitamin D penting untuk mencegah kerusakan akibat radikal bebas pada otak," ungkap ketua peneliti Allan Butterfield, seperti dilansir oleh Science Daily (02/12).

Sebelumnya, penelitian lain juga menemukan bahwa kurang vitamin D bisa menyebabkan penyakit Alzheimer serta berkaitan dengan penyakit jantung dan beberapa jenis kanker. Butterfield merekomendasikan agar manula atau orang dewasa mengetahui tingkat vitamin D pada tubuh mereka.

Jika tingkat vitamin D tergolong rendah, mereka harus mulai mengonsumsi makanan yang kaya vitamin D atau mengonsumsi suplemen vitamin D. Tak hanya itu, berjemur selama 10 - 15 menit di bawah matahari juga bisa membantu menambah asupan vitamin D dan menjaga kesehatan otak.

Advertisement Politics Obama Finds a Bolder Voice on Race Issues

As he reflected on the festering wounds deepened by race and grievance that have been on painful display in America’s cities lately, President Obama on Monday found himself thinking about a young man he had just met named Malachi.

A few minutes before, in a closed-door round-table discussion at Lehman College in the Bronx, Mr. Obama had asked a group of black and Hispanic students from disadvantaged backgrounds what could be done to help them reach their goals. Several talked about counseling and guidance programs.

“Malachi, he just talked about — we should talk about love,” Mr. Obama told a crowd afterward, drifting away from his prepared remarks. “Because Malachi and I shared the fact that our dad wasn’t around and that sometimes we wondered why he wasn’t around and what had happened. But really, that’s what this comes down to is: Do we love these kids?”

Many presidents have governed during times of racial tension, but Mr. Obama is the first to see in the mirror a face that looks like those on the other side of history’s ledger. While his first term was consumed with the economy, war and health care, his second keeps coming back to the societal divide that was not bridged by his election. A president who eschewed focusing on race now seems to have found his voice again as he thinks about how to use his remaining time in office and beyond.

Obama Speaks of a ‘Sense of Unfairness’

Obama Speaks of a ‘Sense of Unfairness’

At an event announcing the creation of a nonprofit focusing on young minority men, President Obama talked about the underlying reasons for recent protests in Baltimore and other cities.

In the aftermath of racially charged unrest in places like Baltimore, Ferguson, Mo., and New York, Mr. Obama came to the Bronx on Monday for the announcement of a new nonprofit organization that is being spun off from his White House initiative called My Brother’s Keeper. Staked by more than $80 million in commitments from corporations and other donors, the new group, My Brother’s Keeper Alliance, will in effect provide the nucleus for Mr. Obama’s post-presidency, which will begin in January 2017.

“This will remain a mission for me and for Michelle not just for the rest of my presidency but for the rest of my life,” Mr. Obama said. “And the reason is simple,” he added. Referring to some of the youths he had just met, he said: “We see ourselves in these young men. I grew up without a dad. I grew up lost sometimes and adrift, not having a sense of a clear path. The only difference between me and a lot of other young men in this neighborhood and all across the country is that I grew up in an environment that was a little more forgiving.”

Organizers said the new alliance already had financial pledges from companies like American Express, Deloitte, Discovery Communications and News Corporation. The money will be used to help companies address obstacles facing young black and Hispanic men, provide grants to programs for disadvantaged youths, and help communities aid their populations.

Joe Echevarria, a former chief executive of Deloitte, the accounting and consulting firm, will lead the alliance, and among those on its leadership team or advisory group are executives at PepsiCo, News Corporation, Sprint, BET and Prudential Group Insurance; former Secretary of State Colin L. Powell; Senator Cory Booker, Democrat of New Jersey; former Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr.; the music star John Legend; the retired athletes Alonzo Mourning, Jerome Bettis and Shaquille O’Neal; and the mayors of Indianapolis, Sacramento and Philadelphia.

The alliance, while nominally independent of the White House, may face some of the same questions confronting former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton as she begins another presidential campaign. Some of those donating to the alliance may have interests in government action, and skeptics may wonder whether they are trying to curry favor with the president by contributing.

“The Obama administration will have no role in deciding how donations are screened and what criteria they’ll set at the alliance for donor policies, because it’s an entirely separate entity,” Josh Earnest, the White House press secretary, told reporters on Air Force One en route to New York. But he added, “I’m confident that the members of the board are well aware of the president’s commitment to transparency.”

The alliance was in the works before the disturbances last week after the death of Freddie Gray, the black man who suffered fatal injuries while in police custody in Baltimore, but it reflected the evolution of Mr. Obama’s presidency. For him, in a way, it is coming back to issues that animated him as a young community organizer and politician. It was his own struggle with race and identity, captured in his youthful memoir, “Dreams From My Father,” that stood him apart from other presidential aspirants.

But that was a side of him that he kept largely to himself through the first years of his presidency while he focused on other priorities like turning the economy around, expanding government-subsidized health care and avoiding electoral land mines en route to re-election.

After securing a second term, Mr. Obama appeared more emboldened. Just a month after his 2013 inauguration, he talked passionately about opportunity and race with a group of teenage boys in Chicago, a moment aides point to as perhaps the first time he had spoken about these issues in such a personal, powerful way as president. A few months later, he publicly lamented the death of Trayvon Martin, a black Florida teenager, saying that “could have been me 35 years ago.”

That case, along with public ruptures of anger over police shootings in Ferguson and elsewhere, have pushed the issue of race and law enforcement onto the public agenda. Aides said they imagined that with his presidency in its final stages, Mr. Obama might be thinking more about what comes next and causes he can advance as a private citizen.

That is not to say that his public discussion of these issues has been universally welcomed. Some conservatives said he had made matters worse by seeming in their view to blame police officers in some of the disputed cases.

“President Obama, when he was elected, could have been a unifying leader,” Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, a Republican candidate for president, said at a forum last week. “He has made decisions that I think have inflamed racial tensions.”

On the other side of the ideological spectrum, some liberal African-American activists have complained that Mr. Obama has not done enough to help downtrodden communities. While he is speaking out more, these critics argue, he has hardly used the power of the presidency to make the sort of radical change they say is necessary.

The line Mr. Obama has tried to straddle has been a serrated one. He condemns police brutality as he defends most officers as honorable. He condemns “criminals and thugs” who looted in Baltimore while expressing empathy with those trapped in a cycle of poverty and hopelessness.

In the Bronx on Monday, Mr. Obama bemoaned the death of Brian Moore, a plainclothes New York police officer who had died earlier in the day after being shot in the head Saturday on a Queens street. Most police officers are “good and honest and fair and care deeply about their communities,” even as they put their lives on the line, Mr. Obama said.

“Which is why in addressing the issues in Baltimore or Ferguson or New York, the point I made was that if we’re just looking at policing, we’re looking at it too narrowly,” he added. “If we ask the police to simply contain and control problems that we ourselves have been unwilling to invest and solve, that’s not fair to the communities, it’s not fair to the police.”

Moreover, if society writes off some people, he said, “that’s not the kind of country I want to live in; that’s not what America is about.”

His message to young men like Malachi Hernandez, who attends Boston Latin Academy in Massachusetts, is not to give up.

“I want you to know you matter,” he said. “You matter to us.”

Dean Skelos, Albany Senate Leader, Aided Son at All Costs, U.S. Says

Over the last five years or so, it seemed there was little that Dean G. Skelos, the majority leader of the New York Senate, would not do for his son.

He pressed a powerful real estate executive to provide commissions to his son, a 32-year-old title insurance salesman, according to a federal criminal complaint. He helped get him a job at an environmental company and employed his influence to help the company get government work. He used his office to push natural gas drilling regulations that would have increased his son’s commissions.

He even tried to direct part of a $5.4 billion state budget windfall to fund government contracts that the company was seeking. And when the company was close to securing a storm-water contract from Nassau County, the senator, through an intermediary, pressured the company to pay his son more — or risk having the senator subvert the bid.

The criminal complaint, unsealed on Monday, lays out corruption charges against Senator Skelos and his son, Adam B. Skelos, the latest scandal to seize Albany, and potentially alter its power structure.

The repeated and diverse efforts by Senator Skelos, a Long Island Republican, to use what prosecutors said was his political influence to find work, or at least income, for his son could send both men to federal prison. If they are convicted of all six charges against them, they face up to 20 years in prison for each of four of the six counts and up to 10 years for the remaining two.

Senator Kenneth P. LaValle, of Long Island, who serves as chairman of the Republican conference, emerged from a closed-door meeting Monday night to say that conference members agreed that Mr. Skelos should be benefited the “presumption of innocence,” and would stay in his leadership role.

“The leader has indicated he would like to remain as leader,” said Mr. LaValle, “and he has the support of the conference.” The case against Mr. Skelos and his son grew out of a broader inquiry into political corruption by the United States attorney for the Southern District of New York, Preet Bharara, that has already changed the face of the state capital. It is based in part, according to the six-count complaint, on conversations secretly recorded by one of two cooperating witnesses, and wiretaps on the cellphones of the senator and his son. Those recordings revealed that both men were concerned about electronic surveillance, and illustrated the son’s unsuccessful efforts to thwart it.

Adam Skelos took to using a “burner” phone, the complaint says, and told his father he wanted them to speak through a FaceTime video call in an apparent effort to avoid detection. They also used coded language at times.

At one point, Adam Skelos was recorded telling a Senate staff member of his frustration in not being able to speak openly to his father on the phone, noting that he could not “just send smoke signals or a little pigeon” carrying a message.

The 43-page complaint, sworn out by Paul M. Takla, a special agent for the Federal Bureau of Investigation, outlines a five-year scheme to “monetize” the senator’s official position; it also lays bare the extent to which a father sought to use his position to help his son.

The charges accuse the two men of extorting payments through a real estate developer, Glenwood Management, based on Long Island, and the environmental company, AbTech Industries, in Scottsdale, Ariz., with the expectation that the money paid to Adam Skelos — nearly $220,000 in total — would influence his father’s actions.

Glenwood, one of the state’s most prolific campaign donors, had ties to AbTech through investments in the environmental firm’s parent company by Glenwood’s founding family and a senior executive.

The accusations in the complaint portray Senator Skelos as a man who, when it came to his son, was not shy about twisting arms, even in situations that might give other arm-twisters pause.

Seeking to help his son, Senator Skelos turned to the executive at Glenwood, which develops rental apartments in New York City and has much at stake when it comes to real estate legislation in Albany. The senator urged him to direct business to his son, who sold title insurance.

After much prodding, the executive, Charles C. Dorego, engineered a $20,000 payment to Adam Skelos from a title insurance company even though he did no work for the money. But far more lucrative was a consultant position that Mr. Dorego arranged for Adam Skelos at AbTech, which seeks government contracts to treat storm water. (Mr. Dorego is not identified by name in the complaint, but referred to only as CW-1, for Cooperating Witness 1.)

Senator Skelos appeared to take an active interest in his son’s new line of work. Adam Skelos sent him several drafts of his consulting agreement with AbTech, the complaint says, as well as the final deal that was struck.

“Mazel tov,” his father replied.

Senator Skelos sent relevant news articles to his son, including one about a sewage leak near Albany. When AbTech wanted to seek government contracts after Hurricane Sandy, the senator got on a conference call with his son and an AbTech executive, Bjornulf White, and offered advice. (Like Mr. Dorego, Mr. White is not named in the complaint, but referred to as CW-2.)

The assistance paid off: With the senator’s help, AbTech secured a contract worth up to $12 million from Nassau County, a big break for a struggling small business.

But the money was slow to materialize. The senator expressed impatience with county officials.

Adam Skelos, in a phone call with Mr. White in late December, suggested that his father would seek to punish the county. “I tell you this, the state is not going to do a [expletive] thing for the county,” he said.

Three days later, Senator Skelos pressed his case with the Nassau County executive, Edward P. Mangano, a fellow Republican. “Somebody feels like they’re just getting jerked around the last two years,” the senator said, referring to his son in what the complaint described as “coded language.”

The next day, the senator pursued the matter, as he and Mr. Mangano attended a wake for a slain New York City police officer. Senator Skelos then reassured his son, who called him while he was still at the wake. “All claims that are in will be taken care of,” the senator said.

AbTech’s fortunes appeared to weigh on his son. At one point in January, Adam Skelos told his father that if the company did not succeed, he would “lose the ability to pay for things.”

Making matters worse, in recent months, Senator Skelos and his son appeared to grow wary about who was watching them. In addition to making calls on the burner phone, Adam Skelos said he used the FaceTime video calling “because that doesn’t show up on the phone bill,” as he told Mr. White.

In late February, Adam Skelos arranged a pair of meetings between Mr. White and state senators; AbTech needed to win state legislation that would allow its contract to move beyond its initial stages. But Senator Skelos deemed the plan too risky and caused one of the meetings to be canceled.

In another recorded call, Adam Skelos, promising to be “very, very vague” on the phone, urged his father to allow the meeting. The senator offered a warning. “Right now we are in dangerous times, Adam,” he told him.

A month later, in another phone call that was recorded by the authorities, Adam Skelos complained that his father could not give him “real advice” about AbTech while the two men were speaking over the telephone.

“You can’t talk normally,” he told his father, “because it’s like [expletive] Preet Bharara is listening to every [expletive] phone call. It’s just [expletive] frustrating.”

“It is,” his father agreed.

The Uphill Battle to Better Regulate Formaldehyde

WASHINGTON — A decade after emergency trailers meant to shelter Hurricane Katrina victims instead caused burning eyes, sore throats and other more serious ailments, the Environmental Protection Agency is on the verge of regulating the culprit: formaldehyde, a chemical that can be found in commonplace things like clothes and furniture.

But an unusual assortment of players, including furniture makers, the Chinese government, Republicans from states with a large base of furniture manufacturing and even some Democrats who championed early regulatory efforts, have questioned the E.P.A. proposal. The sustained opposition has held sway, as the agency is now preparing to ease key testing requirements before it releases the landmark federal health standard.

The E.P.A.’s five-year effort to adopt this rule offers another example of how industry opposition can delay and hamper attempts by the federal government to issue regulations, even to control substances known to be harmful to human health.

Document: The Formaldehyde Fight

Formaldehyde is a known carcinogen that can also cause respiratory ailments like asthma, but the potential of long-term exposure to cause cancers like myeloid leukemia is less well understood.

The E.P.A.’s decision would be the first time that the federal government has regulated formaldehyde inside most American homes.

“The stakes are high for public health,” said Tom Neltner, senior adviser for regulatory affairs at the National Center for Healthy Housing, who has closely monitored the debate over the rules. “What we can’t have here is an outcome that fails to confront the health threat we all know exists.”

The proposal would not ban formaldehyde — commonly used as an ingredient in wood glue in furniture and flooring — but it would impose rules that prevent dangerous levels of the chemical’s vapors from those products, and would set testing standards to ensure that products sold in the United States comply with those limits. The debate has sharpened in the face of growing concern about the safety of formaldehyde-treated flooring imported from Asia, especially China.

What is certain is that a lot of money is at stake: American companies sell billions of dollars’ worth of wood products each year that contain formaldehyde, and some argue that the proposed regulation would impose unfair costs and restrictions.

Determined to block the agency’s rule as proposed, these industry players have turned to the White House, members of Congress and top E.P.A. officials, pressing them to roll back the testing requirements in particular, calling them redundant and too expensive.

“There are potentially over a million manufacturing jobs that will be impacted if the proposed rule is finalized without changes,” wrote Bill Perdue, the chief lobbyist at the American Home Furnishings Alliance, a leading critic of the testing requirements in the proposed regulation, in one letter to the E.P.A.

Industry opposition helped create an odd alignment of forces working to thwart the rule. The White House moved to strike out key aspects of the proposal. Subsequent appeals for more changes were voiced by players as varied as Senator Barbara Boxer, Democrat of California, and Senator Roger Wicker, Republican of Mississippi, as well as furniture industry lobbyists.

Hurricane Katrina in 2005 helped ignite the public debate over formaldehyde, after the deadly storm destroyed or damaged hundreds of thousands of homes along the Gulf of Mexico, forcing families into temporary trailers provided by the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

The displaced storm victims quickly began reporting respiratory problems, burning eyes and other issues, and tests then confirmed high levels of formaldehyde fumes leaking into the air inside the trailers, which in many cases had been hastily constructed.

Public health advocates petitioned the E.P.A. to issue limits on formaldehyde in building materials and furniture used in homes, given that limits already existed for exposure in workplaces. But three years after the storm, only California had issued such limits.

Industry groups like the American Chemistry Council have repeatedly challenged the science linking formaldehyde to cancer, a position championed by David Vitter, the Republican senator from Louisiana, who is a major recipient of chemical industry campaign contributions, and whom environmental groups have mockingly nicknamed “Senator Formaldehyde.”

Formaldehyde in Laminate Flooring

In laminate flooring, formaldehyde is used as a bonding agent in the fiberboard (or other composite wood) core layer and may also be used in glues that bind layers together. Concerns were raised in March when certain laminate flooring imported from China was reported to contain levels of formaldehyde far exceeding the limit permitted by California.

What is formaldehyde?

Formaldehyde is a common chemical used in many industrial and household products as an adhesive, bonding agent or preservative. It is classified as a volatile organic compound. The term volatile means that, at room temperature, formaldehyde will vaporize, or become a gas. Products made with formaldehyde tend to release this gas into the air. If breathed in large quantities, it may cause health problems.

WHERE IT IS COMMONLY FOUND

POTENTIAL HEALTH RISKS

Pressed-wood and composite wood products

Wallpaper and paints

Spray foam insulation used in construction

Commercial wood floor finishes

Crease-resistant fabrics

In cigarette smoke, or in the fumes from combustion of other materials, including wood, oil and gasoline.

Exposure to formaldehyde in sufficient amounts may cause eye, throat or skin irritation, allergic reactions, and respiratory problems like coughing, wheezing or asthma.

Long-term exposure to high levels has been associated with cancer in humans and laboratory animals.

Exposure to formaldehyde may affect some people more severely than others.

By 2010, public health advocates and some industry groups secured bipartisan support in Congress for legislation that ordered the E.P.A. to issue federal rules that largely mirrored California’s restrictions. At the time, concerns were rising over the growing number of lower-priced furniture imports from Asia that might include contaminated products, while also hurting sales of American-made products.

Maneuvering began almost immediately after the E.P.A. prepared draft rules to formally enact the new standards.

White House records show at least five meetings in mid-2012 with industry executives — kitchen cabinet makers, chemical manufacturers, furniture trade associations and their lobbyists, like Brock R. Landry, of the Venable law firm. These parties, along with Senator Vitter’s office, appealed to top administration officials, asking them to intervene to roll back the E.P.A. proposal.

The White House Office of Management and Budget, which reviews major federal regulations before they are adopted, apparently agreed. After the White House review, the E.P.A. “redlined” many of the estimates of the monetary benefits that would be gained by reductions in related health ailments, like asthma and fertility issues, documents reviewed by The New York Times show.

As a result, the estimated benefit of the proposed rule dropped to $48 million a year, from as much as $278 million a year. The much-reduced amount deeply weakened the agency’s justification for the sometimes costly new testing that would be required under the new rules, a federal official involved in the effort said.

“It’s a redlining blood bath,” said Lisa Heinzerling, a Georgetown University Law School professor and a former E.P.A. official, using the Washington phrase to describe when language is stricken from a proposed rule. “Almost the entire discussion of these potential benefits was excised.”

Senator Vitter’s staff was pleased.

“That’s a huge difference,” said Luke Bolar, a spokesman for Mr. Vitter, of the reduced estimated financial benefits, saying the change was “clearly highlighting more mismanagement” at the E.P.A.

The review’s outcome galvanized opponents in the furniture industry. They then targeted a provision that mandated new testing of laminated wood, a cheaper alternative to hardwood. (The California standard on which the law was based did not require such testing.)

But E.P.A. scientists had concluded that these laminate products — millions of which are sold annually in the United States — posed a particular risk. They said that when thin layers of wood, also known as laminate or veneer, are added to furniture or flooring in the final stages of manufacturing, the resulting product can generate dangerous levels of fumes from often-used formaldehyde-based glues.

Industry executives, outraged by what they considered an unnecessary and financially burdensome level of testing, turned every lever within reach to get the requirement removed. It would be particularly onerous, they argued, for small manufacturers that would have to repeatedly interrupt their work to do expensive new testing. The E.P.A. estimated that the expanded requirements for laminate products would cost the furniture industry tens of millions of dollars annually, while the industry said that the proposed rule over all would cost its 7,000 American manufacturing facilities over $200 million each year.

“A lot of people don’t seem to appreciate what a lot of these requirements do to a small operation,” said Dick Titus, executive vice president of the Kitchen Cabinet Manufacturers Association, whose members are predominantly small businesses. “A 10-person shop, for example, just really isn’t equipped to handle that type of thing.”

Big industry players also weighed in. Executives from companies including La-Z-Boy, Hooker Furniture and Ashley Furniture all flew to Washington for a series of meetings with the offices of lawmakers including House Speaker John Boehner, Republican of Ohio, and about a dozen other lawmakers, asking several of them to sign a letter prepared by the industry to press the E.P.A. to back down, according to an industry report describing the lobbying visit.

Within a matter of weeks, two letters — using nearly identical language — were sent by House and Senate lawmakers to the E.P.A. — with the industry group forwarding copies of the letters to the agency as well, and then posting them on its website.

The industry lobbyists also held their own meeting at E.P.A. headquarters, and they urged Jim Jones, who oversaw the rule-making process as the assistant administrator for the agency’s Office of Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention, to visit a North Carolina furniture manufacturing plant. According to the trade group, Mr. Jones told them that the visit had “helped the agency shift its thinking” about the rules and how laminated products should be treated.

The resistance was particularly intense from lawmakers like Mr. Wicker of Mississippi, whose state is home to major manufacturing plants owned by Ashley Furniture Industries, the world’s largest furniture maker, and who is one of the biggest recipients in Congress of donations from the industry’s trade association. Asked if the political support played a role, a spokesman for Mr. Wicker replied: “Thousands of Mississippians depend on the furniture manufacturing industry for their livelihoods. Senator Wicker is committed to defending all Mississippians from government overreach.”

Individual companies like Ikea also intervened, as did the Chinese government, which claimed that the new rule would create a “great barrier” to the import of Chinese products because of higher costs.

Perhaps the most surprising objection came from Senator Boxer, of California, a longtime environmental advocate, whose office questioned why the E.P.A.’s rule went further than her home state’s in seeking testing on laminated products. “We did not advocate an outcome, other than safety,” her office said in a statement about why the senator raised concerns. “We said ‘Take a look to see if you have it right.’ ”

Safety advocates say that tighter restrictions — like the ones Ms. Boxer and Mr. Wicker, along with Representative Doris Matsui, a California Democrat, have questioned — are necessary, particularly for products coming from China, where items as varied as toys and Christmas lights have been found to violate American safety standards.

While Mr. Neltner, the environmental advocate who has been most involved in the review process, has been open to compromise, he has pressed the E.P.A. not to back down entirely, and to maintain a requirement that laminators verify that their products are safe.

An episode of CBS’s “60 Minutes” in March brought attention to the issue when it accused Lumber Liquidators, the discount flooring retailer, of selling laminate products with dangerous levels of formaldehyde. The company has disputed the show’s findings and test methods, maintaining that its products are safe.

“People think that just because Congress passed the legislation five years ago, the problem has been fixed,” said Becky Gillette, who then lived in coastal Mississippi, in the area hit by Hurricane Katrina, and was among the first to notice a pattern of complaints from people living in the trailers. “Real people’s faces and names come up in front of me when I think of the thousands of people who could get sick if this rule is not done right.”

An aide to Ms. Matsui rejected any suggestion that she was bending to industry pressure.

“From the beginning the public health has been our No. 1 concern,” said Kyle J. Victor, an aide to Ms. Matsui.

But further changes to the rule are likely, agency officials concede, as they say they are searching for a way to reduce the cost of complying with any final rule while maintaining public health goals. The question is just how radically the agency will revamp the testing requirement for laminated products — if it keeps it at all.

“It’s not a secret to anybody that is the most challenging issue,” said Mr. Jones, the E.P.A. official overseeing the process, adding that the health consequences from formaldehyde are real. “We have to reduce those exposures so that people can live healthy lives and not have to worry about being in their homes.”
