saco-indonesia.com, Hacker baru saja telah meretas komputer milik Kementerian Pertahanan Israel. Hebatnya, aksi ini juga dilakukan hanya lewat sebuah attachment email yang telah berisi malware.

malware tersebut adalah XtremeRat yang memang telah tersebar lewat bantuan email. Malware ini masuk ke email milik Shin Bet Secret Security Service Israel dan kemudian secara cepat tersebar.

Tercatat, ada 15 komputer Dephan Israel yang jadi korbannya. Bahkan, malware juga mampu tersebar ke komputer Administrasi Sipil yang selama ini telah memantau warga Palestina yang hidup di wilayah Israel.

Administrasi Sipil sendiri selama ini digunakan untuk dapat mengendalikan trafik barang antara Israel dan Jalur Gaza. Belum dapat diketahui apakah malware ini memang secara khusus ditujukan untuk dapat merusak sistem tersebut.

Sementara itu, muncul juga dugaan bahwa serangan tersebut ditujukan untuk dapat mengacaukan perizinan kerja warga Palestina di Israel. Bisa jadi itu juga merupakan motivasi di balik serangan ini.

Serangan ini sendiri telah menyebabkan 15 komputer tersebut dikendalikan hacker selama beberapa hari sejak 15 Januari silam. Sayang, pihak Israel belum mau mengumumkan lebih lanjut mengenai serangan ini.

"Kami juga tak akan berkomentar," kata juru bicara Administrasi Sipil Israel, Guy Inbar.

HACKER TELAH MENGACAK KOMPUTER DEPHAN ISRAEL

saco-indonesia.com, Misteri pembunuhan terhadap wanita pengusaha catering di Jalan Tanah Tinggi 1, RT 011/06 Kel. Tanah Tinggi, Kec. Johar Baru, Jakarta Pusat, akhirnya terkuak. Pelaku telah ditangkap oleh petugas Polres Jakarta Pusat di Kampung Badui, Lebak Banten.

Tersangka Suwiryo yang berusia 27 tahun , telah mengaku membunuh korban karena butuh uang untuk biaya persalinan istrinya. “Tadinya saya tidak bermaksud untuk membunuh majikan, hanya mau mengambil perhiasan yang akan saya jual untuk biaya melahirkan istri. Namun korban teriak hingga saya panik dan membunuhnya,” katanya, Kamis (6/2) kemarin.

Kasat Reskrim Polres Jakpus AKBP Tatan Dirsan Atmaja telah menjelaskan, terungkapnya kasus pembunuhan yang telah menimpa Adhika Putri yang berusia 31 tahun ,janda beranak dua ini berkat kerja keras polisi dalam melakukan penyelidikan, termasuk keterangan sejumlah saksi. “Para saksi mengarahkan dugaan ke pelaku,” katanya.

Petugas pun juga mendapat petunjuk kalau Suwiryo berada di tempat istrinya di daerah Banten. Polisi kemudian telah membentuk tim khusus untuk dapat memburu pelaku.

Begitu diyakini kalau pelaku berada di Banten, petugas yang dipimpin oleh Kanit Resmob AKP Mustakim, segera menuju ke lokasi untuk dapat memastikan keberadaan pelaku pembunuh pengusaha catering. Setibanya petugas di perkampungan Badui, polisi bersama sejumlah masyarakat sekitar itu telah mendatangi rumah pelaku.

Polisi telah melihat tersangka sedang tidur-tiduran dan langsung disergap. “Dari hasil BAP yang telah dibuatkan polisi, terungkap kalau pelaku sudah sering melakukan pencurian di rumah dengan modus berlagak sebagai pembantu dan ujung-ujungnya mencuri harta majikan,” ujar Tatan Dirsan Atmaja.

Menurut pengakuan pelaku, Minggu (2/2) lalu sekitar pukul 03:00 dinihari , sudah ada niat jahat untuk mencuri di tempat majikannya. Ia masuk kamar tengah saat majikan tidak ada. Namun karena barang yang diincer tidak ada, niat jahat itu kembali dilakukan pada Senin (3/2) sekitar pukul 10:00.

Tersangka masuk kamar depan dan mengambil perhiasan emas 5 gram dan laptop berikut HP dari lemari. Naas, saat pelaku mau keluar dari kamar tiba-tiba wanita beranak dua itu terjaga dari bangun dan mempergoki aksinya. Korban teriak hingga membuat tersangka panik dan membekapnya pakai kain.

Setelah itu,pelaku memukul kepala pakai palu yang sudah disiapkan hingga belasan kali. Korban pun tewas dengan kondisi mengenaskan. “Tersangka kita kenakan  pasal 365 jo  338 KUHP  dengan ancaman hukuman 20 kurungan penjara,” tegas Tatan.(silaen/yo)

PEMBUNUH WANITA PENGUSAHA KATERING DITANGKAP

JAKARTA, Sako-Indonesia.com – Detasemen Khusus 88 Antiteror Polri hingga kini belum berhasil menangkap terduga teroris Sigit Indrajit (23) yang tinggal di kawasan Pamulang, Tangerang Selatan. Sigit terkait teroris yang ditangkap di Jalan Jenderal Sudirman dan mengontrak rumah di Jalan Bangka, Kemang, Jakarta Selatan.

“Tim di lapangan masih melakukan pengejaran terhadap SI yang kita ketahui berdomisili di Pamulang. Tim masih melakukan pengejaran yang diduga kuat bersama dua orang ikut proses rakit bom itu,” ujar Kepala Biro Penerangan Masyarakat Polri Brigadir Jenderal (Pol) Boy Rafli Amar di Mabes Polri, Jakarta Selatan, Senin (6/5/2013).

Boy mengatakan Sigit ikut dalam proses perakitan bom. Dia juga telah dipantau lebih dari tiga bulan lalu untuk Detasemen Khusus 88 Antiteror Polri.

“Dia ikut merakit bom bersama dua yang ditangkap di mampang,” kata Boy.

Sebelumnya, Detasemen Khusus 88 Antiteror Polri tak mendapati Sigit saat penggerebekan di rumah kontrakannya, Jalan Kenanga 4 Nomor 61, RT 5/3, Kelurahan Benda Baru, Kecamatan Pamulang Kota, Tangerang Selatan, Jumat (3/5/2013) dini hari.

Bekasi, Saco-Indonesua.com — Negara Belanda telah menciptakan pasar bagus yang memungkinkan orang untuk cukup mendapat makanan dengan harga relatif murah dan stabil dan jenis yang seimbang.

Belanda menyalip Perancis dan Swiss sebagai negara dengan makanan paling bergizi, berlimpah, dan sehat, sementara Amerika Serikat dan Jepang gagal masuk dalam 20 besar, dalam sebuah daftar baru yang dirilis oleh Oxfam, Selasa (14/1/2014).

Chad ada di urutan terbawah dari daftar 125 negara, di belakang Etiopia dan Angola, dalam indeks makanan dari badan bantuan dan pembangunan internasional tersebut.

"Belanda telah menciptakan pasar bagus yang memungkinkan orang untuk cukup mendapat makanan. Harga relatif murah dan stabil dan jenis makanan yang dimakan pun seimbang," ujar Deborah Hardoon, peneliti senior Oxfam yang mengompilasi hasil-hasil tersebut.

"Belanda membentuk fundamental yang benar dan lebih baik dari sebagian besar negara di seluruh dunia."

Oxfam melakukan pemeringkatan berdasarkan ketersediaan, kualitas, serta harga makanan dan kesehatan makanan. Organisasi tersebut juga melihat persentase anak berbobot kurang, keberagaman makanan dan akses terhadap air bersih, serta hasil kesehatan negatif seperti obesitas dan diabetes.

Negara-negara Eropa mendominasi peringkat-peringkat teratas, tetapi Australia ada di antara 12 teratas, setara dengan Irlandia, Italia, Portugal, dan Luksemburg pada posisi delapan. Inggris berada di peringkat 13 akibat ketidakstabilan harga makanan dibandingkan barang-barang lain. Negara-negara Afrika, bersama Laos (112), Banglades (102), Pakistan (97), dan India (97) mendominasi 30 terbawah.

Indonesia berada di peringkat 83 setara dengan Rwanda, sedangkan negara Asia Tenggara lainnya berada di posisi lebih baik seperti Vietnam (71), Filipina, (67), Malaysia (44), dan Thailand (42).

Kelaparan

Oxfam mengatakan, angka-angka terakhir menunjukkan bahwa 840 juta orang kelaparan setiap hari, meski ada cukup makanan untuk mereka. Organisasi ini mendesak perubahan dalam cara produksi dan distribusi makanan di seluruh dunia.

Penyebab kelaparan, menurutnya, termasuk kurangnya investasi dalam infrastruktur di negara-negara berkembang dan dalam pertanian skala kecil, keamanan, persetujuan perdagangan prohibitif, target-target biofuel yang mengubah tanaman menjadi bahan bakar, dan dampak perubahan iklim.

Oxfam mengumpulkan data antara Oktober dan Desember 2013 menggunakan informasi terakhir dari Badan Kesehatan Dunia (WHO), Badan Pangan dan Pertanian, dan Organisasi Buruh Internasional, serta badan-badan internasional lainnya.

Siapa sih yang tidak mau tidur dengan nyenyak? Tentu saja “terms & conditions” orang biar bisa tidur nyenyak sangat berbeda-beda. Beberapa orang telah memerlukan kehadiran lampu tidur biar bisa nyenyak. Kalau kamu termasuk tipe yang satu ini, maka banyak lho pilihan lampu tidur murah yang lucu-lucu.

Lampu tidur murah yang berkarakter telah banyak ditemukan, tapi sulit untuk menentukan mana yang berkualitas. Pasalnya, lampu tidur adalah alat elektronik, dan keamanan telah menjadi salah satu prioritas utama juga. Jadi, jangan cuma memilih lampu tidur dengan karakter kesukaan saja, tapi juga faktor lain yang membuatnya fungsional.

Ukuran Lampu Tidur Murah

Karena fungsinya hanya sebagai penerangan secukupnya saja, maka ukuran dari lampu tidur murah yang kamu pilih pun harusnya tidak terlalu besar. Malah, lebih baik lagi jika lampu tidur ini dipilih dengan ukuran yang kecil saja, agar tidak terlalu memakan tempat juga.

Kalau kamu susah menemukannya, lampu meja juga dapat dijadikan alternative sebagai pilihan lampu tidur murah. Sekarang ini banyak juga lampu meja dengan konsep karakter lucu yang dijual.

Lampu Tidur Murah yang Tidak Silau

Intensitas cahaya juga telah menjadi salah satu faktor penentu lampu tidur murah yang akan dibeli. Karena sifatnya hanya untuk menemani tidur kamu, pilihlah lampu tidur murah dengan intensitas yang rendah saja. Kalau terlalu silau, kamu malah tidak bisa tidur nantinya.

Warna Lampu Tidur Murah

Warna dari lampu tidur murah juga harus diperhatikan. Pilihlah warna lampu kuning tidak cocok untuk lampu tidur, karena warna kuning akan dapat merangsang orang untuk tetap beraktivitas. Kalau kamu perhatikan di kamar hotel, warna lampu tidurnya adalah putih kebiruan yang cukup muram. Warna ini akan dapat membuat kamu mengantuk lebih cepat.

Tata Letak Lampu Tidur Murah

Jika kamu sudah membeli lampu tidur murah dengan karakter yang kamu sukai, kini kamu juga harus mengetahui teknik peletakan lampu tidur ini. Kalau kamu pakai lampu meja sebagai lampu tidurmu, kamu tidak perlu memindahkannya lagi. Tetap letakkan di atas meja saja, dan nyalakan pada saat kamu ingin tidur.

Satu hal penting yang harus kamu ingat kalau kamu mau meletakkan lampu tidur murah yang baru kamu beli adalah jarak dengan ranjang. Kamu tentu tidak mau muka dipapar sinar ketika tidur, dong? Walaupun sinarnya remang, tetap saja itu malah menjadi polusi cahaya buatmu. Jadi, letakkan setidaknya agak jauh agar tidak mencapai muka.

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’s first-class and business fliers get Rhapsody, its high-minded in-flight magazine, seen here at its office in Brooklyn. Credit Sam Hodgson for The New York Times

Last summer at a writers’ workshop in Oregon, the novelists Anthony Doerr, Karen Russell and Elissa Schappell were chatting over cocktails when they realized they had all published work in the same magazine. It wasn’t one of the usual literary outlets, like Tin House, The Paris Review or The New Yorker. It was Rhapsody, an in-flight magazine for United Airlines.

It seemed like a weird coincidence. Then again, considering Rhapsody’s growing roster of A-list fiction writers, maybe not. Since its first issue hit plane cabins a year and a half ago, Rhapsody has published original works by literary stars like Joyce Carol Oates, Rick Moody, Amy Bloom, Emma Straub and Mr. Doerr, who won the Pulitzer Prize for fiction two weeks ago.

As airlines try to distinguish their high-end service with luxuries like private sleeping chambers, showers, butler service and meals from five-star chefs, United Airlines is offering a loftier, more cerebral amenity to its first-class and business-class passengers: elegant prose by prominent novelists. There are no airport maps or disheartening lists of in-flight meal and entertainment options in Rhapsody. Instead, the magazine has published ruminative first-person travel accounts, cultural dispatches and probing essays about flight by more than 30 literary fiction writers.

An airline might seem like an odd literary patron. But as publishers and writers look for new ways to reach readers in a shaky retail climate, many have formed corporate alliances with transit companies, including American Airlines, JetBlue and Amtrak, that provide a captive audience.

Mark Krolick, United Airlines’ managing director of marketing and product development, said the quality of the writing in Rhapsody brings a patina of sophistication to its first-class service, along with other opulent touches like mood lighting, soft music and a branded scent.

“The high-end leisure or business-class traveler has higher expectations, even in the entertainment we provide,” he said.

Some of Rhapsody’s contributing writers say they were lured by the promise of free airfare and luxury accommodations provided by United, as well as exposure to an elite audience of some two million first-class and business-class travelers.

“It’s not your normal Park Slope Community Bookstore types who read Rhapsody,” Mr. Moody, author of the 1994 novel “The Ice Storm,” who wrote an introspective, philosophical piece about traveling to the Aran Islands of Ireland for Rhapsody, said in an email. “I’m not sure I myself am in that Rhapsody demographic, but I would like them to buy my books one day.”

In addition to offering travel perks, the magazine pays well and gives writers freedom, within reason, to choose their subject matter and write with style. Certain genres of flight stories are off limits, naturally: no plane crashes or woeful tales of lost luggage or rude flight attendants, and nothing too risqué.

“We’re not going to have someone write about joining the mile-high club,” said Jordan Heller, the editor in chief of Rhapsody. “Despite those restrictions, we’ve managed to come up with a lot of high-minded literary content.”

Guiding writers toward the right idea occasionally requires some gentle prodding. When Rhapsody’s executive editor asked Ms. Russell to contribute an essay about a memorable flight experience, she first pitched a story about the time she was chaperoning a group of teenagers on a trip to Europe, and their delayed plane sat at the airport in New York for several hours while other passengers got progressively drunker.

“He pointed out that disaster flights are not what people want to read about when they’re in transit, and very diplomatically suggested that maybe people want to read something that casts air travel in a more positive light,” said Ms. Russell, whose novel “Swamplandia!” was a finalist for the 2012 Pulitzer Prize.

She turned in a nostalgia-tinged essay about her first flight on a trip to Disney World when she was 6. “The Magic Kingdom was an anticlimax,” she wrote. “What ride could compare to that first flight?”

Ms. Oates also wrote about her first flight, in a tiny yellow propeller plane piloted by her father. The novelist Joyce Maynard told of the constant disappointment of never seeing her books in airport bookstores and the thrill of finally spotting a fellow plane passenger reading her novel “Labor Day.” Emily St. John Mandel, who was a finalist for the National Book Award in fiction last year, wrote about agonizing over which books to bring on a long flight.

“There’s nobody that’s looked down their noses at us as an in-flight magazine,” said Sean Manning, the magazine’s executive editor. “As big as these people are in the literary world, there’s still this untapped audience for them of luxury travelers.”

United is one of a handful of companies showcasing work by literary writers as a way to elevate their brands and engage customers. Chipotle has printed original work from writers like Toni Morrison, Jeffrey Eugenides and Barbara Kingsolver on its disposable cups and paper bags. The eyeglass company Warby Parker hosts parties for authors and sells books from 14 independent publishers in its stores.

JetBlue offers around 40 e-books from HarperCollins and Penguin Random House on its free wireless network, allowing passengers to read free samples and buy and download books. JetBlue will start offering 11 digital titles from Simon & Schuster soon. Amtrak recently forged an alliance with Penguin Random House to provide free digital samples from 28 popular titles, which passengers can buy and download over Amtrak’s admittedly spotty wireless service.

Amtrak is becoming an incubator for literary talent in its own right. Last year, it started a residency program, offering writers a free long-distance train trip and complimentary food. More than 16,000 writers applied and 24 made the cut.

Like Amtrak, Rhapsody has found that writers are eager to get onboard. On a rainy spring afternoon, Rhapsody’s editorial staff sat around a conference table discussing the June issue, which will feature an essay by the novelist Hannah Pittard and an unpublished short story by the late Elmore Leonard.

“Do you have that photo of Elmore Leonard? Can I see it?” Mr. Heller, the editor in chief, asked Rhapsody’s design director, Christos Hannides. Mr. Hannides slid it across the table and noted that they also had a photograph of cowboy spurs. “It’s very simple; it won’t take away from the literature,” he said.

Rhapsody’s office, an open space with exposed pipes and a vaulted brick ceiling, sits in Dumbo at the epicenter of literary Brooklyn, in the same converted tea warehouse as the literary journal N+1 and the digital publisher Atavist. Two of the magazine’s seven staff members hold graduate degrees in creative writing. Mr. Manning, the executive editor, has published a memoir and edited five literary anthologies.

Mr. Manning said Rhapsody was conceived from the start as a place for literary novelists to write with voice and style, and nobody had been put off that their work would live in plane cabins and airport lounges.

Still, some contributors say they wish the magazine were more widely circulated.

“I would love it if I could read it,” said Ms. Schappell, a Brooklyn-based novelist who wrote a feature story for Rhapsody’s inaugural issue. “But I never fly first class.”

Imagine an elite professional services firm with a high-performing, workaholic culture. Everyone is expected to turn on a dime to serve a client, travel at a moment’s notice, and be available pretty much every evening and weekend. It can make for a grueling work life, but at the highest levels of accounting, law, investment banking and consulting firms, it is just the way things are.

Except for one dirty little secret: Some of the people ostensibly turning in those 80- or 90-hour workweeks, particularly men, may just be faking it.

Many of them were, at least, at one elite consulting firm studied by Erin Reid, a professor at Boston University’s Questrom School of Business. It’s impossible to know if what she learned at that unidentified consulting firm applies across the world of work more broadly. But her research, published in the academic journal Organization Science, offers a way to understand how the professional world differs between men and women, and some of the ways a hard-charging culture that emphasizes long hours above all can make some companies worse off.

Ms. Reid interviewed more than 100 people in the American offices of a global consulting firm and had access to performance reviews and internal human resources documents. At the firm there was a strong culture around long hours and responding to clients promptly.

“When the client needs me to be somewhere, I just have to be there,” said one of the consultants Ms. Reid interviewed. “And if you can’t be there, it’s probably because you’ve got another client meeting at the same time. You know it’s tough to say I can’t be there because my son had a Cub Scout meeting.”

Some people fully embraced this culture and put in the long hours, and they tended to be top performers. Others openly pushed back against it, insisting upon lighter and more flexible work hours, or less travel; they were punished in their performance reviews.

The third group is most interesting. Some 31 percent of the men and 11 percent of the women whose records Ms. Reid examined managed to achieve the benefits of a more moderate work schedule without explicitly asking for it.

They made an effort to line up clients who were local, reducing the need for travel. When they skipped work to spend time with their children or spouse, they didn’t call attention to it. One team on which several members had small children agreed among themselves to cover for one another so that everyone could have more flexible hours.

A male junior manager described working to have repeat consulting engagements with a company near enough to his home that he could take care of it with day trips. “I try to head out by 5, get home at 5:30, have dinner, play with my daughter,” he said, adding that he generally kept weekend work down to two hours of catching up on email.

Despite the limited hours, he said: “I know what clients are expecting. So I deliver above that.” He received a high performance review and a promotion.

What is fascinating about the firm Ms. Reid studied is that these people, who in her terminology were “passing” as workaholics, received performance reviews that were as strong as their hyper-ambitious colleagues. For people who were good at faking it, there was no real damage done by their lighter workloads.

It calls to mind the episode of “Seinfeld” in which George Costanza leaves his car in the parking lot at Yankee Stadium, where he works, and gets a promotion because his boss sees the car and thinks he is getting to work earlier and staying later than anyone else. (The strategy goes awry for him, and is not recommended for any aspiring partners in a consulting firm.)

A second finding is that women, particularly those with young children, were much more likely to request greater flexibility through more formal means, such as returning from maternity leave with an explicitly reduced schedule. Men who requested a paternity leave seemed to be punished come review time, and so may have felt more need to take time to spend with their families through those unofficial methods.

The result of this is easy to see: Those specifically requesting a lighter workload, who were disproportionately women, suffered in their performance reviews; those who took a lighter workload more discreetly didn’t suffer. The maxim of “ask forgiveness, not permission” seemed to apply.

It would be dangerous to extrapolate too much from a study at one firm, but Ms. Reid said in an interview that since publishing a summary of her research in Harvard Business Review she has heard from people in a variety of industries describing the same dynamic.

High-octane professional service firms are that way for a reason, and no one would doubt that insane hours and lots of travel can be necessary if you’re a lawyer on the verge of a big trial, an accountant right before tax day or an investment banker advising on a huge merger.

But the fact that the consultants who quietly lightened their workload did just as well in their performance reviews as those who were truly working 80 or more hours a week suggests that in normal times, heavy workloads may be more about signaling devotion to a firm than really being more productive. The person working 80 hours isn’t necessarily serving clients any better than the person working 50.

In other words, maybe the real problem isn’t men faking greater devotion to their jobs. Maybe it’s that too many companies reward the wrong things, favoring the illusion of extraordinary effort over actual productivity.

BALTIMORE — In the afternoons, the streets of Locust Point are clean and nearly silent. In front of the rowhouses, potted plants rest next to steps of brick or concrete. There is a shopping center nearby with restaurants, and a grocery store filled with fresh foods.

And the National Guard and the police are largely absent. So, too, residents say, are worries about what happened a few miles away on April 27 when, in a space of hours, parts of this city became riot zones.

“They’re not our reality,” Ashley Fowler, 30, said on Monday at the restaurant where she works. “They’re not what we’re living right now. We live in, not to be racist, white America.”

As Baltimore considers its way forward after the violent unrest brought by the death of Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old black man who died of injuries he suffered while in police custody, residents in its predominantly white neighborhoods acknowledge that they are sometimes struggling to understand what beyond Mr. Gray’s death spurred the turmoil here. For many, the poverty and troubled schools of gritty West Baltimore are distant troubles, glimpsed only when they pass through the area on their way somewhere else.

And so neighborhoods of Baltimore are facing altogether different reckonings after Mr. Gray’s death. In mostly black communities like Sandtown-Winchester, where some of the most destructive rioting played out last week, residents are hoping businesses will reopen and that the police will change their strategies. But in mostly white areas like Canton and Locust Point, some residents wonder what role, if any, they should play in reimagining stretches of Baltimore where they do not live.

“Most of the people are kind of at a loss as to what they’re supposed to do,” said Dr. Richard Lamb, a dentist who has practiced in the same Locust Point office for nearly 39 years. “I listen to the news reports. I listen to the clergymen. I listen to the facts of the rampant unemployment and the lack of opportunities in the area. Listen, I pay my taxes. Exactly what can I do?”

And in Canton, where the restaurants have clever names like Nacho Mama’s and Holy Crepe Bakery and Café, Sara Bahr said solutions seemed out of reach for a proudly liberal city.

“I can only imagine how frustrated they must be,” said Ms. Bahr, 36, a nurse who was out with her 3-year-old daughter, Sally. “I just wish I knew how to solve poverty. I don’t know what to do to make it better.”

The day of unrest and the overwhelmingly peaceful demonstrations that followed led to hundreds of arrests, often for violations of the curfew imposed on the city for five consecutive nights while National Guard soldiers patrolled the streets. Although there were isolated instances of trouble in Canton, the neighborhood association said on its website, many parts of southeast Baltimore were physically untouched by the tumult.

Tensions in the city bubbled anew on Monday after reports that the police had wounded a black man in Northwest Baltimore. The authorities denied those reports and sent officers to talk with the crowds that gathered while other officers clutching shields blocked traffic at Pennsylvania and West North Avenues.

Lt. Col. Melvin Russell, a community police officer, said officers had stopped a man suspected of carrying a handgun and that “one of those rounds was spent.”

Colonel Russell said officers had not opened fire, “so we couldn’t have shot him.”

The colonel said the man had not been injured but was taken to a hospital as a precaution. Nearby, many people stood in disbelief, despite the efforts by the authorities to quash reports they described as “unfounded.”

Monday’s episode was a brief moment in a larger drama that has yielded anger and confusion. Although many people said they were familiar with accounts of the police harassing or intimidating residents, many in Canton and Locust Point said they had never experienced it themselves. When they watched the unrest, which many protesters said was fueled by feelings that they lived only on Baltimore’s margins, even those like Ms. Bahr who were pained by what they saw said they could scarcely comprehend the emotions associated with it.

But others, like Lambi Vasilakopoulos, who runs a casual restaurant in Canton, said they were incensed by what unfolded last week.

“What happened wasn’t called for. Protests are one thing; looting is another thing,” he said, adding, “We’re very frustrated because we’re the ones who are going to pay for this.”

There were pockets of optimism, though, that Baltimore would enter a period of reconciliation.

“I’m just hoping for peace,” Natalie Boies, 53, said in front of the Locust Point home where she has lived for 50 years. “Learn to love each other; be patient with each other; find justice; and care.”

A skeptical Mr. Vasilakopoulos predicted tensions would worsen.

“It cannot be fixed,” he said. “It’s going to get worse. Why? Because people don’t obey the laws. They don’t want to obey them.”

But there were few fears that the violence that plagued West Baltimore last week would play out on these relaxed streets. The authorities, Ms. Fowler said, would make sure of that.

“They kept us safe here,” she said. “I didn’t feel uncomfortable when I was in my house three blocks away from here. I knew I was going to be O.K. because I knew they weren’t going to let anyone come and loot our properties or our businesses or burn our cars.”

Baltimore Residents Away From Turmoil Consider Their Role

KATHMANDU, Nepal — When the dense pillar of smoke from cremations by the Bagmati River was thinning late last week, the bodies were all coming from Gongabu, a common stopover for Nepali migrant workers headed overseas, and they were all of young men.

Hindu custom dictates that funeral pyres should be lighted by the oldest son of the deceased, but these men were too young to have sons, so they were burned by their brothers or fathers. Sukla Lal, a maize farmer, made a 14-hour journey by bus to retrieve the body of his 19-year-old son, who had been on his way to the Persian Gulf to work as a laborer.

“He wanted to live in the countryside, but he was compelled to leave by poverty,” Mr. Lal said, gazing ahead steadily as his son’s remains smoldered. “He told me, ‘You can live on your land, and I will come up with money, and we will have a happy family.’ ”

Weeks will pass before the authorities can give a complete accounting of who died in the April 25 earthquake, but it is already clear that Nepal cannot afford the losses. The countryside was largely stripped of its healthy young men even before the quake, as they migrated in great waves — 1,500 a day by some estimates — to work as laborers in India, Malaysia or one of the gulf nations, leaving many small communities populated only by elderly parents, women and children. Economists say that at some times of the year, one-quarter of Nepal’s population is working outside the country.
