GENOA, Saco-Indonesia.com — Presiden Genoa, Enrico Preziosi, merampas dan merusak kamera seorang wartawan Secolo XIX di depan umum. Meski sudah meminta maaf, Preziosi mengaku akan kembali melakukan hal tersebut jika para wartawan dianggap bertindak di luar batas.

Kejadian itu bermula ketika ada beberapa wartawan yang menanyakan Preziosi soal rumor penjualan klub kepada Presiden Varese, Antonio Rosati. Kesal dengan pertanyaan wartawan, Preziosi lantas mendatangi seorang wartawan Secolo XIX dan kemudian merampas serta membanting kamera sang wartawan hingga rusak.

"Saya sudah minta maaf dan akan membayar ganti rugi untuk kamera itu. Namun, tindakan wartawan itu tidak benar menyergap orang. Reaksi saya mungkin dikritik, tetapi saya menderita lebih buruk," jelas Preziosi kepada TGCom.

"Saya tidak bisa menerima seseorang mengambil gambar saya secara rahasia dan kemudian menyergap saya. Dalam konteks itu, saya memang akan melakukannya lagi," ancamnya.

Preziosi kemudian mengecam laporan media yang mengatakan ia sedang bernegosiasi untuk menjual Genoa kepada Presiden Varese, Antonio Rosati, yang kini telah resmi dinobatkan sebagai wakil presiden eksekutif Genoa.

"Saya terpana oleh kebohongan yang disebarkan. Rosati akan bergabung dengan klub, tetapi sama sekali tidak ada pertukaran atau penjualan saham. Saya tidak akan menjual klub," tegasnya.

"Kami melihat di halaman depan dengan wajah Rosati adalah presiden baru Genoa. Itu tidak benar. Kami hanya akan memperkuat skuad. Setiap hari di Genoa, wartawan terus menciptakan sesuatu yang membuat saya marah," tuturnya.

"Saya hanya mengganti direktur Pietro Lo Monaco dengan Rosati. Ia akan meninggalkan jabatan Presiden Varese karena dua posisi yang bertentangan," jelasnya.

Merasa Kesal, Presiden Genoa Rusak Kamera Wartawan

JAKARTA, Saco-Indonesia.com — Siapa orang yang menembak Tito Refra Kei, adik John Kei, hingga tewas masih belum diketahui. Namun, diduga pelaku adalah pembunuh bayaran.

"Kita duga ini aksi dilakukan oleh pembunuh bayaran. Untuk mendeteksi aksi pembunuh bayaran itu sulit karena sifatnya individu," kata Presidium Indonesia Police Watch Neta S Pane, saat dihubungi Kompas.com, Senin (3/6/2013).

Menurut Neta, dugaan itu dapat dilihat dari keterampilan pelaku dalam melakukan eksekusinya. Pertama, pelaku dapat melakukan aksinya bahkan pada saat situasi ramai. Padahal, kata Neta, ada orang-orang Tito Kei yang juga berada di lokasi kejadian. Kedua, lanjut Neta, pelaku melakukan penembakan dengan tepat sasaran, meski menggunakan helm dan kondisi saat itu sudah malam.

"Ketiga, kita duga pelaku sudah profesional, sudah melakukan survei dengan datang dari mana, posisi tembak di mana, dan dia harus lari ke mana," ujar Neta.

Selain itu, Neta mengatakan, kemungkinan pelaku sudah memiliki senjata api bukan rakitan sudah cukup lama. "Memang banyak beredar senjata api rakitan. Tapi dalam kasus Tito tidak ada kaitannya karena tentu senjata yang digunakan bukan rakitan, tetapi senjata sudah dimiliki cukup lama sehingga tepat sasaran. Senjata rakitan yang ilegal itu biasa dilakukan pada aksi pencurian seperti di minimarket," ujarnya.

Belajar dari kasus kematian Tito Kei, sambungnya, sudah saatnya jajaran kepolisian di Polda Metro Jaya melakukan deteksi dini terhadap pelaku teror bersenjata itu. Hal ini, kata dia, untuk mencegah potensi kejadian lain yang bisa muncul dari kasus tersebut.

"Polres atau polsek bisa melakukan patroli untuk antisipasi jangan sampai ada aksi penembakan seperti itu," katanya.

Sebelumnya, pelaku tak dikenal dengan memakai helm dan mengenakan jaket mendekati Tito dan rekannya yang tengah bermain kartu di lokasi kejadian. Pelaku kemudian menembak Tito beserta pemilik warung hingga kedua korban tewas. Dalam kejadian itu pelaku melepaskan tembakan dua kali kepada korban.

Setelah melakukan aksinya, pelaku kemudian melarikan diri. Sementara itu, di lokasi kejadian, polisi menemukan satu proyektil peluru dan satu selongsong.

saco-indonesia.com, Kanker Payudara juga merupakan penyakit yang dapat disebabkan oleh sel ganas (kanker) yang tumbuh pada jaringan payudara. Sel-sel ini biasanya akan muncul pada saluran atau lobula di payudara. Sel-sel kanker ini juga dapat menyebar di antara jaringan atau organ yang ada dan ke bagian tubuh lainnya.

Seberapa umumkah Kanker Payudara?

Kanker Payudara juga merupakan penyebab kematian kedua terbesar bagi wanita saat ini. Di Singapura, 1 dari 16 wanita akan terdiagnosa mengidap kanker payudara dalam masa hidupnya. Wanita etnis Cina telah memiliki resiko yang lebih tinggi jika dibandingkan dengan etnis Melayu atau India sekitar 10% hingga 20%. Kasus tertinggi telah terjadi pada kelompok umur 55-59 tahun. Resiko terkena kanker payudara meningkat seiring bertambahnya usia. Kabar baiknya sekarang adalah banyak wanita kini mampu untuk melawan kanker payudara karena telah melakukan pendeteksian dini serta peningkatan kualitas pengobatan.

Apa Penyebabnya?

Faktor pemicu kanker ini belum dapat diketahui. Namun hal ini juga bisa ditelusuri dari sejarah keluarga yang telah mengidap kanker payudara, siklus menstruasi dini, atau kemungkinan faktor resiko lainnya. Karena begitu sulit untuk dapat dipastikan, masing-masing kita telah memiliki resiko terkena kanker payudara, khususnya saat kita berusia 40 tahun atau lebih. Walaupun faktor penyebabnya masih tidak diketahui, akan tetapi penyembuhan total sangat dimungkinkan dengan pendeteksian dini melalui pemeriksaan payudara secara reguler.
 
Diagnosa & Pemeriksaan

Bagaimana cara mendiagnosa?

Pemeriksaan Klinis – Khususnya bila benjolan, keluarnya cairan dari puting, atau perubahan payudara yang tidak biasa terjadi.

Mamogram – Metode ini juga dapat mendeteksi perubahan seperti kepadatan yang tidak normal atau terjadinya deposit kalsium.

Ultrasound Scan – Metode ini juga digunakan untuk dapat mendeteksi pada area khusus yang telah ditemukan dalam pemeriksaan mamogram atau dapat dilakukan untuk dapat mendeteksi kondisi abnormal yang tidak terlihat pada mamogram. Sebuah ultrasound scan juga dapat membedakan antara massa yang solid, yang kemungkinan kanker, atau kista yang berisi cairan yang biasanya bukan merupakan kanker.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging, MRI – Pada beberapa kasus, pasien harus menjalani sken MRI untuk dapat memperoleh hasil pemeriksaan yang lebih jelas pada area yang diduga terkena kanker. Metode ini juga sangat berguna bagi wanita yang berusia muda karena pada usianya mereka memiliki kepadatan jaringan payudara yang lebih besar dan tes visual konvensional seperti mamogram ataupun ultrasound menjadi kurang sensitif dan spesifik untuk mendeteksi kanker payudara.

          
Apa itu Biopsi?
          

Teknik biopsi umum

Untuk dapat memastikan kanker payudara, sebuah biopsi harus dilakukan di mana bagian dari jaringan sel yang diduga kanker diangkat dan diperiksa dengan mikroskop.
          

    Aspirasi Jarum Halus (FNA)
    Biopsi Jarum Inti (Core Needle) atau Biopsi Tru-cut
    Biopsi Eksisi (Excision Biopsy)

 
Bagaimana Kanker Payudara diperiksa?


A. TAHAPAN/LUAS PENYEBARAN
      TAHAPAN     LUAS PENYEBARAN     TINGKAT RATA-RATA KESELAMATAN PADA MASA
5-TAHUNAN(%)
      0     Kanker non-invasif     99
      I     Kanker invasif kecil
(kurang dari 2 cm tanpa penyebaran ke arah kelenjar getah bening aksila)     90
      II     

Kanker invasif
(antara 2-5cm atau/dengan penyebaran pada kelenjar getah bening)
    70
      III     Kanker invasif besar
(lebih dari 5cm dengan penyebaran pada kulit atau beberapa kelenjar getah bening)     40
      IV     

Penyebaran yang luas atau Kanker metastatis
    20


B. KARAKTERISTIK KANKER PAYUDARA YANG BERDAMPAK PADA KAMBUH DAN KESELAMATAN
Tingkat Histologis Tumor

Merujuk pada seberapa banyak sel tumor yang telah memiliki kemiripan dengan sel normal dilihat dari mikroskop; skala tingkat 1 sampai dengan 3. Tumor tingkat 3 mengandung sel kanker yang sangat abnormal dan tumbuh pesat. Semakin tinggi tingkat histologis tumor, semakin besar resiko kanker payudara kembali.
          
Kelenjar Getah Bening

Jumlah kelenjar getah bening yang berada di ketiak, di sisi yang sama pada payudara yang terkena kanker, bisa jadi indikator penting. Semakin besar jumlah kelenjar yang positif diasosiasikan dengan kemungkinan terburuk dan merujuk kepada perawatan dan pengobatan yang lebih agresif.
            
Ukuran Tumor

Secara umum, semakin besar ukuran tumor, semakin besar kemungkinan untuk kanker payudara kembali menyerang.
          
ER/PR

Sekitar duapertiga dari semua kanker payudara telah memiliki tingkat esterogen yang signifikan dan/atau reseptor progesteron. Mereka dirujuk sebagai tumor reseptor esterogen positif (ER+). Tumor ER+ cenderung tumbuh kurang agresif dan dapat diobati dengan pengobatan menggunakan hormon.
            
HER2/erbB2

HER2 adalah sebuah protein yang telah ditemukan pada permukaan dari sel kanker tertentu. Sebuah tumor juga dapat digambarkan sebagai HER2-positif apabila tumor tersebut telah memiliki lebih banyak reseptor HER2 dibanding dengan yang lain. Sekitar 20-25% dari semua kanker payudara memiliki tumor dengan label HER2-positif. Tumors HER2-positif cenderung tumbuh lebih cepat daripada jenis-jenis kanker payudara lainnya.

Dengan mengetahui apakah sebuah kanker adalah HER2-positif dapat mempengaruhi pilihan pengobatan yang dapat diambil, karena wanita dengan tumor sejenis ini dapat diuntungkan dengan obat yang disebut trastuzumab (Herceptin®).

 
Pengobatan & Perawatan

Bagaimana kanker payudara diobati?

Pilihan pengobatan dan prognosis (peluang kesembuhan) tergantung dari tahapan kanker (apakah kanker tersebut hanya ada di payudara atau sudah menyebar ke bagian tubuh lainnya), tipe kanker payudara, karakteristik dari sel kanker dan apakah kanker tersebut ditemukan pada sisi payudara yang lain. Usia seorang wanita, status menopausal (apakah wanita tersebut masih memiliki siklus haid) dan kondisi kesehatan umumnya juga dapat mempengaruhi pilihan pengobatan dan prognosis.
 
Bedah

Pembedahan adalah umum untuk mengangkat kanker. Beberapa bentuk prosedur bedah termasuk:

1)    Bedah dengan mempertahankan payudara

    Lumpektomi atau Wide Local Excision – pengangkatan kanker dan sedikit jaringan di sekitarnya.
    Quadrantektomi – pengangkatan kanker dengan mengangkat lebih banyak jaringan disekitarnya dibandingkan dengan lumpektomi. Untuk prosedur quadrantektomi, seperempat bagian dari payudara diangkat.

2)    Mastektomi – pengangkatan seluruh bagian payudara dengan atau tanpa jaringan kelenjar getah bening di bawah aksila.
 
3)    Saat bedah payudara, beberapa sel kelenjar getah bening di bawah ketiak juga akan diambil untuk pemeriksaan.

 
Terapi Sistemik

    Kemoterapi
    Terapi Hormon
    Herceptin®

 
          
Radioterapi

Radioterapi dengan menggunakan sinar berenergi tinggi yang ditargetkan untuk dapat membunuh sel-sel kanker. Tujuannya adalah untuk dapat membunuh sel kanker yang mungkin tersisa di sekitar payudara.

Radioterapi sangatlah vital setelah prosedur bedah yang mempertahankan payudara, seperti lumpektomi, karena sebagian besar jaringan payudara dibiarkan utuh. Terapi ini juga akan mengurangi kemungkinan kembalinya kanker payudara.

Pada umumnya, wanita yang telah menjalani prosedur masektomi tidak memerlukan radioterapi. Akan tetapi, untuk beberapa kasus, prosedur ini perlu dilakukan untuk dapat merawat dinding dada dan kelenjar getah bening yang ada pada ketiak, bila resiko kembalinya kanker secara lokal masih tinggi.

KANKER PAYUDARA

saco-indonesia.com, Presiden Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono (SBY) telah memenuhi janjinya untuk dapat mendatangi posko pengungsi letusan Gunung Sinabung di Kabanjahe, Kabupaten Karo, Sumatera Utara. Pada kesempatan itu, SBY juga telah meminta agar pemerintah setempat merelokasi warga di lereng gunung ke lokasi yang lebih aman.

"Relokasi, radius 3 km itu saya kira gunung berapi manapun sangat berbahaya, yang berada di radius 3 km tidak bisa tinggal dan harus relokasi. Boleh bertani di tempat itu, tapi tempat tinggal harus di luar radius yang disebut aman tadi," kata SBY di Posko Gereja Katolik Paroki, Karo, Kamis (23/1).

Namun, SBY juga tidak menutup mata jika rencana tersebut akan mendapat perlawanan keras dari warga. SBY juga hanya meminta kepada gubernur dan bupati Karo agar bersabar melakukannya.

"Harus sabar karena kasus yang direlokasi tidak mau," tukasnya.

Selain telah menyoroti masalah relokasi warga, SBY juga telah meminta agar pengelolaan pengungsi dapat dijalankan dengan baik. Tidak boleh ada pengungsi yang mengalami sakit atau meninggal akibat tidak adanya perawatan atau pelayanan yang memadai untuk mereka.

"Masalah rumah rusak bisa diganti, kalau saudara kita meninggal, kita tidak bisa ganti. Semua upaya untuk keselamatan saudara kita," kata SBY usai mendengar paparan Gubernur Sumatera Utara Gatot Pudjobroto tentang penanganan pengungsi di Kabanjahe.

Kemudian, fasilitas dasar bagi pengungsi juga harus tetap diutamakan, tidak boleh ada satupun kekurangan. "Pelayanan saudara kita di tempat penampungan, 'basic' untuk makan minum air bersih dan peralatan kesehatan tidak boleh ada kekurangan," tegasnya.

Terakhir, SBY juga telah meminta gubernur dan bupati Karo untuk dapat mencarikan solusi bagi kerusakan yang telah terjadi atas lahan pertanian milik warga. Dia pun juga mengajak para pemimpin daerah untuk dapat menghitung langsung bersama-sama terkait kerugian-kerugian yang terjadi.

"Solusi bagi petani yang karena musibah benar-benar rusak. tentu kalau dibebankan pada yang bersangkutan akan berat, kebijakan seperti apa, nanti malam (saat rapat-red) saya ada hitung-hitungannya," kata Presiden.

Sebelumnya, Gatot dalam paparannya mengatakan, masa tanggap darurat sejak 15 September 2013 sudah enam kali diperpanjang. Intensitas terus menerus 750 kali erupsi, jumlah pengungsi 203 desa, 4 kecamatan 28.745 orang atau 9.045 Kepala Keluarga tersebar di 43 tempat pengungsian.

Public perceptions of race relations in America have grown substantially more negative in the aftermath of the death of a young black man who was injured while in police custody in Baltimore and the subsequent unrest, far eclipsing the sentiment recorded in the wake of turmoil in Ferguson, Mo., last summer.

Americans are also increasingly likely to say that the police are more apt to use deadly force against a black person, the latest New York Times/CBS News poll finds.

The poll findings highlight the challenges for local leaders and police officials in trying to maintain order while sustaining faith in the criminal justice system in a racially polarized nation.

Sixty-one percent of Americans now say race relations in this country are generally bad. That figure is up sharply from 44 percent after the fatal police shooting of Michael Brown and the unrest that followed in Ferguson in August, and 43 percent in December. In a CBS News poll just two months ago, 38 percent said race relations were generally bad. Current views are by far the worst of Barack Obama’s presidency.

The negative sentiment is echoed by broad majorities of blacks and whites alike, a stark change from earlier this year, when 58 percent of blacks thought race relations were bad, but just 35 percent of whites agreed. In August, 48 percent of blacks and 41 percent of whites said they felt that way.

Looking ahead, 44 percent of Americans think race relations are worsening, up from 36 percent in December. Forty-one percent of blacks and 46 percent of whites think so. Pessimism among whites has increased 10 points since December.

The poll finds that profound racial divisions in views of how the police use deadly force remain. Blacks are more than twice as likely to say police in most communities are more apt to use deadly force against a black person — 79 percent of blacks say so compared with 37 percent of whites. A slim majority of whites say race is not a factor in a police officer’s decision to use deadly force.

Overall, 44 percent of Americans say deadly force is more likely to be used against a black person, up from 37 percent in August and 40 percent in December.

Blacks also remain far more likely than whites to say they feel mostly anxious about the police in their community. Forty-two percent say so, while 51 percent feel mostly safe. Among whites, 8 in 10 feel mostly safe.

One proposal to address the matter — having on-duty police officers wear body cameras — receives overwhelming support. More than 9 in 10 whites and blacks alike favor it.

Asked specifically about the situation in Baltimore, most Americans expressed at least some confidence that the investigation by local authorities would be conducted fairly. But while nearly two-thirds of whites think so, fewer than half of blacks agree. Still, more blacks are confident now than were in August regarding the investigation in Ferguson. On Friday, six members of the police force involved in the arrest of Mr. Gray were charged with serious offenses, including manslaughter. The poll was conducted Thursday through Sunday; results from before charges were announced are similar to those from after.

Reaction to the recent turmoil in Baltimore, however, is similar among blacks and whites. Most Americans, 61 percent, say the unrest after Mr. Gray’s death was not justified. That includes 64 percent of whites and 57 percent of blacks.

Negative View of U.S. Race Relations Grows, Poll Finds

UNITED NATIONS — Wearing pinstripes and a pince-nez, Staffan de Mistura, the United Nations envoy for Syria, arrived at the Security Council one Tuesday afternoon in February and announced that President Bashar al-Assad had agreed to halt airstrikes over Aleppo. Would the rebels, Mr. de Mistura suggested, agree to halt their shelling?

What he did not announce, but everyone knew by then, was that the Assad government had begun a military offensive to encircle opposition-held enclaves in Aleppo and that fierce fighting was underway. It would take only a few days for rebel leaders, having pushed back Syrian government forces, to outright reject Mr. de Mistura’s proposed freeze in the fighting, dooming the latest diplomatic overture on Syria.

Diplomacy is often about appearing to be doing something until the time is ripe for a deal to be done.

 

 

Now, with Mr. Assad’s forces having suffered a string of losses on the battlefield and the United States reaching at least a partial rapprochement with Mr. Assad’s main backer, Iran, Mr. de Mistura is changing course. Starting Monday, he is set to hold a series of closed talks in Geneva with the warring sides and their main supporters. Iran will be among them.

In an interview at United Nations headquarters last week, Mr. de Mistura hinted that the changing circumstances, both military and diplomatic, may have prompted various backers of the war to question how much longer the bloodshed could go on.

“Will that have an impact in accelerating the willingness for a political solution? We need to test it,” he said. “The Geneva consultations may be a good umbrella for testing that. It’s an occasion for asking everyone, including the government, if there is any new way that they are looking at a political solution, as they too claim they want.”

He said he would have a better assessment at the end of June, when he expects to wrap up his consultations. That coincides with the deadline for a final agreement in the Iran nuclear talks.

Whether a nuclear deal with Iran will pave the way for a new opening on peace talks in Syria remains to be seen. Increasingly, though, world leaders are explicitly linking the two, with the European Union’s top diplomat, Federica Mogherini, suggesting last week that a nuclear agreement could spur Tehran to play “a major but positive role in Syria.”

It could hardly come soon enough. Now in its fifth year, the Syrian war has claimed 220,000 lives, prompted an exodus of more than three million refugees and unleashed jihadist groups across the region. “This conflict is producing a question mark in many — where is it leading and whether this can be sustained,” Mr. de Mistura said.

Part Italian, part Swedish, Mr. de Mistura has worked with the United Nations for more than 40 years, but he is more widely known for his dapper style than for any diplomatic coups. Syria is by far the toughest assignment of his career — indeed, two of the organization’s most seasoned diplomats, Lakhdar Brahimi and Kofi Annan, tried to do the job and gave up — and critics have wondered aloud whether Mr. de Mistura is up to the task.

He served as a United Nations envoy in Afghanistan and Iraq, and before that in Lebanon, where a former minister recalled, with some scorn, that he spent many hours sunbathing at a private club in the hills above Beirut. Those who know him say he has a taste for fine suits and can sometimes speak too soon and too much, just as they point to his diplomatic missteps and hyperbole.

They cite, for instance, a news conference in October, when he raised the specter of Srebrenica, where thousands of Muslims were massacred in 1995 during the Balkans war, in warning that the Syrian border town of Kobani could fall to the Islamic State. In February, he was photographed at a party in Damascus, the Syrian capital, celebrating the anniversary of the Iranian revolution just as Syrian forces, aided by Iran, were pummeling rebel-held suburbs of Damascus; critics seized on that as evidence of his coziness with the government.

Mouin Rabbani, who served briefly as the head of Mr. de Mistura’s political affairs unit and has since emerged as one of his most outspoken critics, said Mr. de Mistura did not have the background necessary for the job. “This isn’t someone well known for his political vision or political imagination, and his closest confidants lack the requisite knowledge and experience,” Mr. Rabbani said.

As a deputy foreign minister in the Italian government, Mr. de Mistura was tasked in 2012 with freeing two Italian marines detained in India for shooting at Indian fishermen. He made 19 trips to India, to little effect. One marine was allowed to return to Italy for medical reasons; the other remains in India.

He said he initially turned down the Syria job when the United Nations secretary general approached him last August, only to change his mind the next day, after a sleepless, guilt-ridden night.

Mr. de Mistura compared his role in Syria to that of a doctor faced with a terminally ill patient. His goal in brokering a freeze in the fighting, he said, was to alleviate suffering. He settled on Aleppo as the location for its “fame,” he said, a decision that some questioned, considering that Aleppo was far trickier than the many other lesser-known towns where activists had negotiated temporary local cease-fires.

“Everybody, at least in Europe, are very familiar with the value of Aleppo,” Mr. de Mistura said. “So I was using that as an icebreaker.”

The cease-fire negotiations, to which he had devoted six months, fell apart quickly because of the government’s military offensive in Aleppo the very day of his announcement at the Security Council. Privately, United Nations diplomats said Mr. de Mistura had been manipulated. To this, Mr. de Mistura said only that he was “disappointed and concerned.”

Tarek Fares, a former rebel fighter, said after a recent visit to Aleppo that no Syrian would admit publicly to supporting Mr. de Mistura’s cease-fire proposal. “If anyone said they went to a de Mistura meeting in Gaziantep, they would be arrested,” is how he put it, referring to the Turkish city where negotiations between the two sides were held.

Secretary General Ban Ki-moon remains staunchly behind Mr. de Mistura’s efforts. His defenders point out that he is at the center of one of the world’s toughest diplomatic problems, charged with mediating a conflict in which two of the world’s most powerful nations — Russia, which supports Mr. Assad, and the United States, which has called for his ouster — remain deadlocked.

R. Nicholas Burns, a former State Department official who now teaches at Harvard, credited Mr. de Mistura for trying to negotiate a cease-fire even when the chances of success were exceedingly small — and the chances of a political deal even smaller. For his efforts to work, Professor Burns argued, the world powers will first have to come to an agreement of their own.

“He needs the help of outside powers,” he said. “It starts with backers of Assad. That’s Russia and Iran. De Mistura is there, waiting.”

GREENWICH, Conn. — Mago is in the bedroom. You can go in.

The big man lies on a hospital bed with his bare feet scraping its bottom rail. His head is propped on a scarlet pillow, the left temple dented, the right side paralyzed. His dark hair is kept just long enough to conceal the scars.

The occasional sounds he makes are understood only by his wife, but he still has that punctuating left hand. In slow motion, the fingers curl and close. A thumbs-up greeting.

Hello, Mago.

This is Magomed Abdusalamov, 34, also known as the Russian Tyson, also known as Mago. He is a former heavyweight boxer who scored four knockouts and 14 technical knockouts in his first 18 professional fights. He preferred to stand between rounds. Sitting conveyed weakness.

But Mago lost his 19th fight, his big chance, at the packed Theater at Madison Square Garden in November 2013. His 19th decision, and his last.

Now here he is, in a small bedroom in a working-class neighborhood in Greenwich, in a modest house his family rents cheap from a devoted friend. The air-pressure machine for his mattress hums like an expectant crowd.

Today is like any other day, except for those days when he is hurried in crisis to the hospital. Every three hours during the night, his slight wife, Bakanay, 28, has risen to turn his 6-foot-3 body — 210 pounds of dead weight. It has to be done. Infections of the gaping bedsore above his tailbone have nearly killed him.

Then, with the help of a young caretaker, Baka has gotten two of their daughters off to elementary school and settled down the toddler. Yes, Mago and Baka are blessed with all girls, but they had also hoped for a son someday.

They feed Mago as they clean him; it’s easier that way. For breakfast, which comes with a side of crushed antiseizure pills, he likes oatmeal with a squirt of Hershey’s chocolate syrup. But even oatmeal must be puréed and fed to him by spoon.

He opens his mouth to indicate more, the way a baby does. But his paralysis has made everything a choking hazard. His water needs a stirring of powdered food thickener, and still he chokes — eh-eh-eh — as he tries to cough up what will not go down.

Mago used to drink only water. No alcohol. Not even soda. A sip of juice would be as far as he dared. Now even water betrays him.

With the caretaker’s help, Baka uses a washcloth and soap to clean his body and shampoo his hair. How handsome still, she has thought. Sometimes, in the night, she leaves the bedroom to watch old videos, just to hear again his voice in the fullness of life. She cries, wipes her eyes and returns, feigning happiness. Mago must never see her sad.

When Baka finishes, Mago is cleanshaven and fresh down to his trimmed and filed toenails. “I want him to look good,” she says.

Theirs was an arranged Muslim marriage in Makhachkala, in the Russian republic of Dagestan. He was 23, she was 18 and their future hinged on boxing. Sometimes they would shadowbox in love, her David to his Goliath. You are so strong, he would tell her.

His father once told him he could either be a bandit or an athlete, but if he chose banditry, “I will kill you.” This paternal advice, Mago later told The Ventura County Reporter, “made it a very easy decision for me.”

Mago won against mediocre competition, in Moscow and Hollywood, Fla., in Las Vegas and Johnstown, Pa. He was knocked down only once, and even then, it surprised more than hurt. He scored a technical knockout in the next round.

It all led up to this: the undercard at the Garden, Mike Perez vs. Magomed Abdusalamov, 10 rounds, on HBO. A win, he believed, would improve his chances of taking on the heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko, who sat in the crowd of 4,600 with his fiancée, the actress Hayden Panettiere, watching.

Wearing black-and-red trunks and a green mouth guard, Mago went to work. But in the first round, a hard forearm to his left cheek rocked him. At the bell, he returned to his corner, and this time, he sat down. “I think it’s broken,” he repeatedly said in Russian.

Maybe at that point, somebody — the referee, the ringside doctors, his handlers — should have stopped the fight, under a guiding principle: better one punch too early than one punch too late. But the bloody trade of blows continued into the seventh, eighth, ninth, a hand and orbital bone broken, his face transforming.

Meanwhile, in the family’s apartment in Miami, Baka forced herself to watch the broadcast. She could see it in his swollen eyes. Something was off.

After the final round, Perez raised his tattooed arms in victory, and Mago wandered off in a fog. He had taken 312 punches in about 40 minutes, for a purse of $40,000.

 

 

In the locker room, doctors sutured a cut above Mago’s left eye and tested his cognitive abilities. He did not do well. The ambulance that waits in expectation at every fight was not summoned by boxing officials.

Blood was pooling in Mago’s cranial cavity as he left the Garden. He vomited on the pavement while his handlers flagged a taxi to St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital. There, doctors induced a coma and removed part of his skull to drain fluids and ease the swelling.

Then came the stroke.

It is lunchtime now, and the aroma of puréed beef and potatoes lingers. So do the questions.

How will Mago and Baka pay the $2 million in medical bills they owe? What if their friend can no longer offer them this home? Will they win their lawsuits against the five ringside doctors, the referee, and a New York State boxing inspector? What about Mago’s future care?

Most of all: Is this it?

A napkin rests on Mago’s chest. As another spoonful of mush approaches, he opens his mouth, half-swallows, chokes, and coughs until it clears. Eh-eh-eh. Sometimes he turns bluish, but Baka never shows fear. Always happy for Mago.

Some days he is wheeled out for physical therapy or speech therapy. Today, two massage therapists come to knead his half-limp body like a pair of skilled corner men.

Soon, Mago will doze. Then his three daughters, ages 2, 6 and 9, will descend upon him to talk of their day. Not long ago, the oldest lugged his championship belt to school for a proud show-and-tell moment. Her classmates were amazed at the weight of it.

Then, tonight, there will be more puréed food and pulverized medication, more coughing, and more tender care from his wife, before sleep comes.

Goodbye, Mago.

He half-smiles, raises his one good hand, and forms a fist.

HOBART, Tasmania — Few places seem out of reach for China’s leader, Xi Jinping, who has traveled from European capitals to obscure Pacific and Caribbean islands in pursuit of his nation’s strategic interests.

So perhaps it was not surprising when he turned up last fall in this city on the edge of the Southern Ocean to put down a long-distance marker in another faraway region, Antarctica, 2,000 miles south of this Australian port.

Standing on the deck of an icebreaker that ferries Chinese scientists from this last stop before the frozen continent, Mr. Xi pledged that China would continue to expand in one of the few places on earth that remain unexploited by humans.

He signed a five-year accord with the Australian government that allows Chinese vessels and, in the future, aircraft to resupply for fuel and food before heading south. That will help secure easier access to a region that is believed to have vast oil and mineral resources; huge quantities of high-protein sea life; and for times of possible future dire need, fresh water contained in icebergs.

It was not until 1985, about seven decades after Robert Scott and Roald Amundsen raced to the South Pole, that a team representing Beijing hoisted the Chinese flag over the nation’s first Antarctic research base, the Great Wall Station on King George Island.

But now China seems determined to catch up. As it has bolstered spending on Antarctic research, and as the early explorers, especially the United States and Australia, confront stagnant budgets, there is growing concern about its intentions.

China’s operations on the continent — it opened its fourth research station last year, chose a site for a fifth, and is investing in a second icebreaker and new ice-capable planes and helicopters — are already the fastest growing of the 52 signatories to the Antarctic Treaty. That gentlemen’s agreement reached in 1959 bans military activity on the continent and aims to preserve it as one of the world’s last wildernesses; a related pact prohibits mining.

But Mr. Xi’s visit was another sign that China is positioning itself to take advantage of the continent’s resource potential when the treaty expires in 2048 — or in the event that it is ripped up before, Chinese and Australian experts say.

“So far, our research is natural-science based, but we know there is more and more concern about resource security,” said Yang Huigen, director general of the Polar Research Institute of China, who accompanied Mr. Xi last November on his visit to Hobart and stood with him on the icebreaker, Xue Long, or Snow Dragon.

With that in mind, the polar institute recently opened a new division devoted to the study of resources, law, geopolitics and governance in Antarctica and the Arctic, Mr. Yang said.

Australia, a strategic ally of the United States that has strong economic relations with China, is watching China’s buildup in the Antarctic with a mix of gratitude — China’s presence offers support for Australia’s Antarctic science program, which is short of cash — and wariness.

“We should have no illusions about the deeper agenda — one that has not even been agreed to by Chinese scientists but is driven by Xi, and most likely his successors,” said Peter Jennings, executive director of the Australian Strategic Policy Institute and a former senior official in the Australian Department of Defense.

“This is part of a broader pattern of a mercantilist approach all around the world,” Mr. Jennings added. “A big driver of Chinese policy is to secure long-term energy supply and food supply.”

That approach was evident last month when a large Chinese agriculture enterprise announced an expansion of its fishing operations around Antarctica to catch more krill — small, protein-rich crustaceans that are abundant in Antarctic waters.

“The Antarctic is a treasure house for all human beings, and China should go there and share,” Liu Shenli, the chairman of the China National Agricultural Development Group, told China Daily, a state-owned newspaper. China would aim to fish up to two million tons of krill a year, he said, a substantial increase from what it currently harvests.

Because sovereignty over Antarctica is unclear, nations have sought to strengthen their claims over the ice-covered land by building research bases and naming geographic features. China’s fifth station will put it within reach of the six American facilities, and ahead of Australia’s three.

Chinese mappers have also given Chinese names to more than 300 sites, compared with the thousands of locations on the continent with English names.

In the unspoken competition for Antarctica’s future, scientific achievement can also translate into influence. Chinese scientists are driving to be the first to drill and recover an ice core containing tiny air bubbles that provide a record of climate change stretching as far back as 1.5 million years. It is an expensive and delicate effort at which others, including the European Union and Australia, have failed.

In a breakthrough a decade ago, European scientists extracted an ice core nearly two miles long that revealed 800,000 years of climate history. But finding an ice core going back further would allow scientists to examine a change in the earth’s climate cycles believed to have occurred 900,000 to 1.2 million years ago.

China is betting it has found the best location to drill, at an area called Dome A, or Dome Argus, the highest point on the East Antarctic Ice Sheet. Though it is considered one of the coldest places on the planet, with temperatures of 130 degrees below zero Fahrenheit, a Chinese expedition explored the area in 2005 and established a research station in 2009.

“The international community has drilled in lots of places, but no luck so far,” said Xiao Cunde, a member of the first party to reach the site and the deputy director of the Institute for Climate Change at the Chinese Academy of Meteorological Sciences. “We think at Dome A we will have a straight shot at the one-million-year ice core.”

Mr. Xiao said China had already begun drilling and hoped to find what scientists are looking for in four to five years.

To support its Antarctic aspirations, China is building a sophisticated $300 million icebreaker that is expected to be ready in a few years, said Xia Limin, deputy director of the Chinese Arctic and Antarctic Administration in Beijing. It has also bought a high-tech fixed-wing aircraft, outfitted in the United States, for taking sensitive scientific soundings from the ice.

China has chosen the site for its fifth research station at Inexpressible Island, named by a group of British explorers who were stranded at the desolate site in 1912 and survived the winter by excavating a small ice cave.

Mr. Xia said the inhospitable spot was ideal because China did not have a presence in that part of Antarctica, and because the rocky site did not have much snow, making it relatively cheap to build there.

Anne-Marie Brady, a professor of political science at the University of Canterbury in New Zealand and the author of a soon-to-be-released book, “China as a Polar Great Power,” said Chinese scientists also believed they had a good chance of finding mineral and energy resources near the site.

“China is playing a long game in Antarctica and keeping other states guessing about its true intentions and interests are part of its poker hand,” she said. But she noted that China’s interest in finding minerals was presented “loud and clear to domestic audiences” as the main reason it was investing in Antarctica.

Because commercial drilling is banned, estimates of energy and mineral resources in Antarctica rely on remote sensing data and comparisons with similar geological environments elsewhere, said Millard F. Coffin, executive director of the Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies in Hobart.

But the difficulty of extraction in such severe conditions and uncertainty about future commodity prices make it unlikely that China or any country would defy the ban on mining anytime soon.

Tourism, however, is already booming. Travelers from China are still a relatively small contingent in the Antarctic compared with the more than 13,000 Americans who visited in 2013, and as yet there are no licensed Chinese tour operators.

But that is about to change, said Anthony Bergin, deputy director of the Australian Strategic Policy Institute. “I understand very soon there will be Chinese tourists on Chinese vessels with all-Chinese crew in the Antarctic,” he said.

Fatal Police Shootings: Accounts Since Ferguson

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?”
