Mengenal jenis kulit

Sahabat dr.dep

Penting tidak ya dalam mengetahui jenis kulit kita? mengetahui jenis kulit ternyata sangat penting, hal ini juga berguna untuk dapat menjaga kesehatan kulit dan memilih produk perawatan yang sangat tepat. Bila kita tidak cermat dalam memilih produk perawatan kecantikan yang tepat untuk kulit kita, hasil yang kita harapkan dalam perawatan kemungkinan besar tidak akan tercapai.

Secara garis besar pembagian type kulit telah dibagi menjadi 4:

    Kulit berminyak
    Kulit kering
    Kulit seimbang (normal)
    Kulit sensitif

Kita bahas ya satu persatu

1.Kulit berminyak

Kalau kita lihat dengan skin analyzer, tampilan tekstur kulit yang berminyak pada umumnya tebal dan kasar.Pori pori tampak membesar.Kulit juag terlihat mengkilap karena produksi minyak yang berlebihan. Kulit berminyak juga sangat rentan terhadap jerawat dan komedo karena kelebihan sekresi sebum,kelebihan sekresi sebum ini juga dapat menangkap kotoran pada wajah, sehingga dapat mengakibatkan pori-pori akan tersumbat. Nah kalau pori pori sudah tersumbat, ini bisa akan menimbulkan berbagai masalah, salah satu- nya jerawat.

 2. Kulit kering

Tipe kulit kering telah ditandai dengan tidak meratanya tekstur kilapan pada permukaan kulit,hal ini juga dikarenakan kurangnya produksi minyak yang berfungsi untuk dapat melumasi bagian permukaan dari sel-sel kulit.Bisa karena faktor congenital/bawaan atau karena berbagai kondisi.Kulit kering ini dapat dilihat dari penyebabnya karena berkurangnya kandungan air pada stratum corneum (SC).

Jadi kita sudah tahu ya, pengertiannya kulit berminyak dan kulit kering, kedua type kulit ini kadang muncul secara bersamaan, misalnya ada orang yang telah mengalami kulit kering pada bagian V area (dagu sampai pipi), dan bagian T area (dahi) tampak berminyak.Itu yang kita sebut tipe kulit kombinasi.

 3. Kulit seimbang

Tipe kulit yang telah mempunyai keseimbangan antara produksi minyak dan kelembaban, sehingga dapat terjaga kehalusan, kekenyalan dan kelenturannya.

4. Kulit sensitif

Tipe kulit yang bereaksi secara berlebihan pada bahan stimulus (rangsangan) yang paling ringan sekalipun. Kulit mudah berubah kemerahan.

Jika kita sudah mengetahui jenis kulit kita, tentunya kita juga dapat memilih produk perawatan yang sesuai dengan kebutuhan kulit kita.Dengan begitu kita dapat merawat kulit dengan tepat.

Kulit akan menjadi lebih cerah dan sehat, seperti yang kita harapkan.

MENGENAL JENIS KULIT

KOMPAS.com - Seiring perkembangan waktu, perempuan kini semakin mahir dan maju dalam penguasaan teknologi. Betty Alisjahbana, Komisaris PT Garuda Indonesia, mengungkapkan bahwa perempuan kini tak lagi memandang teknologi sebagai hal yang aneh dan tabu.

"Mereka kini sudah mengetahui ada banyak manfaat yang bisa diambil dan dimanfaatkan untuk meningkatkan kesejahteraan mereka dalam berbagai hal melalui teknologi maju. Mereka pun kini sudah semakin tertantang dan mau belajar untuk menguasai teknologi," jelas Betty, saat seminar "Kartini Next Generation" di Jakarta, beberapa waktu lalu.

Hanya saja tak bisa dipungkiri kalau masih ada perempuan yang beranggapan bahwa penguasaan teknologi hanya diperlukan oleh perempuan kantoran atau wirausaha. Padahal menurut survei yang dilakukan oleh lembaga QB Leadership (lembaga yang berfokus pada industri kreatif) yang dipimpinnya, teknologi sangat bermanfaat untuk semua perempuan, baik yang bekerja, wirausaha, atau yang tak bekerja sekalipun.

"Untuk semua dimensi profesi perempuan apa pun, teknologi punya peranan dan manfaatnya masing-masing," jelasnya.

Survei ini dilakukan pada tahun 2012 untuk mengetahui manfaat teknologi informasi untuk perempuan. Pesertanya dibagi menjadi tiga kelompok, yaitu perempuan profesional, perempuan wirausaha, dan ibu rumah tangga. Hasilnya, 95 persen perempuan entrepreneur mengungkapkan bahwa teknologi bisa membantu mereka untuk merasa lebih sukses dibanding pria. Dengan memanfaatkan teknologi informasi, perempuan pengusaha bisa meningkatkan kemampuan berbinis, produktivitas, sekaligus keuntungan usaha. 

"Teknologi juga akan membantu mereka untuk menjual produk keluar negeri. Selain itu, 45 persen perempuan wirausaha juga memanfaatkan teknologi untuk mencari supplier produk dari luar negeri untuk menciptakan kualitas produk yang lebih baik," katanya.

Lebih jauh lagi, perempuan pengusaha ini juga bisa memanfaatkan teknologi informasi untuk mengatur waktu kerja yang lebih fleksibel, sehingga urusan rumah tangga bisa dikelola dengan baik.

Sedangkan untuk perempuan profesional, biasanya mereka memanfaatkan teknologi ini untuk mengembangkan kemampuan diri dan produktivitas bekerja. Misalnya untuk menyelesaikan pendidikan informal melalui internet, mempromosikan diri untuk mendapatkan pekerjaan yang lebih baik, berhubungan dengan klien di luar negeri, sampai membuat online workshop di seluruh dunia.

Untuk menyeimbangkan kehidupan pekerjaan dan keluarga, pekerja profesional juga sering memanfaatkan teknologi seperti Skype untuk berhubungan dengan keluarga saat mereka harus tugas keluar kota atau keluar negeri. Kadang-kadang mereka menggunakan internet untuk browsing berbagai resep masakan agar bisa dipraktikkan saat hari libur sehingga bisa memanjakan keluarga.

Ibu-ibu rumah tangga yang berpartisipasi dalam survei ini juga mengungkapkan bahwa teknologi juga memberikan banyak manfaat untuk mereka. Sekalipun tidak bekerja di luar rumah, namun teknologi bisa membantu meningkatkan pengetahuan sehingga mereka jadi lebih pandai dan berpikiran terbuka. Menjadi ibu rumah tangga bukan berarti tidak tahu perkembangan dan informasi dunia luar, kan? Banyak manfaat lain yang bisa diperoleh dari teknologi.

"Ibu juga tak perlu repot saat ingin menjemput anak pulang sekolah, tinggal SMS tukang ojek langganan dansi anak langsung dijemput ke sekolahnya. Praktis dan cepat," pungkasnya.

Lagipula, sekarang ini berbagai peralatan rumah tangga seperti lemari es, mesin cuci, atau kompor, juga sudah mulai menggunakan teknologi yang canggih. Apa jadinya jika ibu rumah tangga tak mau belajar untuk menguasai teknologi?

Ibu Rumah Tangga Juga Butuh Teknologi

saco-indonesia.com, Cuaca buruk yang berupa ombak setinggi tiga meter disertai hujan dan badai masih telah melanda Laut Jawa. Imbasnya, nelayan di Kabupaten Pemalang, Jawa Tengah, telah memilih menambatkan kapal di pelabuhan karena takut jadi korban amukan ombak.

Banyaknya nelayan yang tidak melaut telah membuat pelabuhan dipenuhi ratusan kapal. Sejumlah nelayan juga tampak memperbaiki kapal dan alat tangkap ikan yang berupa jaring dan pancing, sambil menunggu cuaca membaik.

"Saat ini ombak berkisar dua hingga tiga meter dan masih sering terjadi angin badai disertai hujan," ujar seorang nelayan setempat, Marsono, Kamis (13/2/2014).

Menurutnya, jika pun ada nelayan yang nekat melaut, mereka juga hanya mencari ikan di pinggiran dan tidak dalam jangka waktu lama. Ikan yang mereka peroleh juga tidak banyak. "Bila biasanya bisa berada dua pekan di lautan, kini hanya satu hari satu malam langsung pulang," terangnya.

Para nelayan juga berharap cuaca segera membaik sehingga bisa kembali melaut. Saat ini mereka juga hanya mengandalkan penghasilan dari buruh serabutan. "Cuaca buruk seperti ini biasanya akan berlangsung antar dua hingga tiga bulan," pungkasnya.

Sedikitnya nelayan yang melaut juga berimbas pada jumlah pasokan di Tempat Pelalangan Ikan (TPI) Pelabuhan Pemalang. Kalangan pedagang ikan kesulitan untuk mendapat hasil tangkapan nelayan, sehingga harga ikan melambung.

THE POTTERS KAPAN LAGI

As governor, Mr. Walker alienated Republicans and his fellow Democrats, particularly the Democratic powerhouse Richard J. Daley, the mayor of Chicago.

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.”

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?”

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.”

With Iran Talks, a Tangled Path to Ending Syria’s War

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.
