Jasa rental mobil menjelang Lebaran kebanjiran order. Pemilik jasa rental mobil, Gunawan (40) juga mengaku semua mobil yang ada telah dipesan.

"Semua mobil sudah dipesan tinggal diambil para penyewanya saja. Biasanya seminggu sebelum Lebaran sudah dibawa," ujarnya.  

Menurut Gunawan, kendati tarif sewa mobil naik hingga 300% dibanding hari biasanya, namun permintaan tetap tinggi.  

Dikatakan, larisnya usaha jasa rental karena masyarakat kini lebih mengutamakan kenyamanan. Mudik menggunakan motor sangat tidak aman apalagi dengan keluarga yang membawa anak kecil.  

Selain itu, masyarakat enggan menggunakan angkutan umum yang berdesak-desakan. Maka dari itulah pilihan favorit adalah mudik dengan menggunakan mobil.  

Lebaran tahun ini, dia juga menyiapkan sebanyak 30 unit mobil yang siap disewakan. Sedangkan harga yang diberikan, menurutnya memiliki kriteria tertentu dan sistem paket.  

Pihaknya menerapkan sistem paket. Kalau biasanya Kijang Innova sewanya Rp 350 ribu sehari. Untuk Lebaran dinaikkan menjadi Rp 6,5 juta rupiah untuk paket satu minggu.  

Sementara untuk Daihatsu Xenia dari Rp 200 ribu menjadi Rp 300 ribu per hari, Avanza dari Rp 250 ribu menjadi Rp 750 ribu per hari, Mitsubishi L300 dari Rp 500 ribu menjadi Rp 1,5 juta per hari, Pregio dari Rp 600 ribu menjadi Rp 1,2 juta per hari.  

Gunawan juga menyediakan hampir semua jenis mobil seperti Innova, Xenia, Avanza, Panther, Kijang LGX, Suzuki APV, Pregio hingga Mitsubishi L300.  

Pengelola rental mobil lainnya, Lukman Hadi (30) di kawasan Tlogosari mengatakan, harga sewa yang biasanya harian berubah menjadi paket. "Jadi sudah tidak ada lagi sewa harian tapi paket dalam seminggu," ujarnya.  

Menjelang Lebaran tahun ini, kendaraan yang tersedia sudah habis dipesan hingga H+7 Lebaran. Pemesanan sudah dilakukan sejak awal bulan puasa.  

Bahkan, ada konsumen yang melakukan order sebulan sebelum puasa. Dibanding hari biasa lonjakan pengguna mobil sewaan sangat tinggi, "Kalau bulan biasa paling sehari cuma tiga unit mobil terpakai, sekarang semua unit habis dirental orang," ujarnya.

 

JELANG LEBARAN, JASA RENTAL MOBIL LARIS MANIS
Cabe Pandaisikek yang masih muda sekitar usia 3,5 bulan. CABE Adalah salah satu komoditi Andalan Di nagari Pandaisikek,80% lahan pertanian di Pandaisikek di tanami dengan cabe. Cabe Pandai Sikek Biasa juga disebut dengan Cabe keriting, Bentuknya kecil dan panjang berbeda dengan cabe jawa , Medan Atau daerah lain Di Indonesia.Tidak hanya bentuk, rasanya pun jauh lebih pedas daripada cabe di daerah lain. Pembudi dayaan cabe dipandaisikek dilakukan dengan 2 cara yaitu tradisional dan teknologi, Tapi kali ini kita akan membahas tehnik cocok tanam cabe secara modren/teknologi dan menggabungkan pengunanan Kimia beserta Organik. 1. Tata cara pengolahan Lahan Bentuk Petaka Cabe Keriting Lahan yang kita pergunakan Kali ini kira-kira berukuran 450 M persegi Atau sekitar 10 Kg Plastik Mulsa Dengan pH tanah Sekitar 5pH, Yang sudah terbebas dari gulma atau sudah bersih. Tentu kita juga bertanya Apa itu pH…….? pH (potential of hydrogen) yaitu tingkat Basa dan keasaman tanah yang menentukan tingkat kesuburan tanah. Bentuk dan ukuran petak Cabe Lahan terlebih dahulu kita buat petakanya dengan jarak 170 cm. petakan awal kita buat dengan kedalaman sekitar 10 cm dengan lebar 50 cm atau hanya untuk membentuk lahanya saja, setelah selesai kita sudah bisa menaburkan pupuk kandang ( pupuk kandang yang dipergunakan kali ini adalah yang berasal dari Tahi Ayam sebagai bahan Organiknya ) dengan ukuran 20 karung sisa pakan ayam. Penebaran dilakukan hingga merata diatas petakan tadi,Setelah selesai kita tunggu sekitar 7-10 hari untuk mendinginkan pupuk kandang tadi juga supaya merata dengan tanah, barulah nanti bisa di lakukan proses berikutnya. Petakan yang sudah didiamkan tadi Langsung saja ditabur dengan pupuk Kimia. Pupuk yang kita gunakan kali ini adalah NPK dengan kadar Hara 15% Nitrogen 9 % Fosfat 20% Kalium Oksida 2 % Magnesium Oksida 3,8 % Sulfur 0,015 % Baron 0,02 % Mangan 0,02 % Seng Dengan ukuran satu karung sekitar 50 Kg, Penaburan dilakukan hingga merata. Setelah itu barulah dilanjutkan dengan memperdalam petakan (hingga mencapai 40 cm) dan menimbun pupuk yang sudah di tabur tadi dengan tingkat kegemburan sekitar 20-30 cm (tanah benar-benar harus halus),Kegemburan dan kedalaman pupuk yang di timbun tadi sangatlah penting karena ini di maksudkan supaya akar cabe nantiknya gampang mencari makan, dan dalamnya pupuk di timbun supaya pada saat cabe berusia sekitar 2,5 bulan dia mendapatkan cadangan makanan yang banyak dan akan lebih mempercepat pertumbuhan hinga berkembang dengan baik hingga panen nanti. Setelah pengemburan selesai langkah selanjutnya membulatkan petakan tadi seperti setengah lingkaran dengan mengunakan rol atau kayu kira 1m, bentuk media tanam hinga bagus dan rapi sebelum dipasang plastik mulsa yang telah di sediakan. Setelah bulat di semprot dengan mengunakan pestisida pembunuh hama tanah, bisa juga menggunakan organik yang banyak beredar di pasaran. bentuk pemasangan plastik mulsa Untuk Pemasangan Mulsa kita membutuhkan bambu yang di belah kecil-kecil supaya mudah di bengkokan dengan ukuran panjang sekitar 20 cm lebar 1cm dan ketebalan 3 mm.Bambu ini digunakan utuk penyangga (samek) di tiap ujung dan pinggiran plastik mulsa. Pemasangan sebaiknya di lakukan pada saat cuaca panas, dengan tujuan supaya mulsa gampang ditarik hingga meregang dan pada cuaca dingin mulsa ini akan kelihatan lebih rapi dan kuat pasangannya. Setelah pemasangan selesai lahan sebaiknya didiamkan pula beberapa hari untuk membunuh hama yang masih berada di dalam petakan. Berikutnya penanaman, sebelum kita tanam tentu terlebih dahulu kita ketahui tentang pembibitan. 2. Pembibitan Cabe bibit cabe berusia 15 hari Bibit: Dipilih dari induk yang berkualitas tinggi berdasarkan ukuran bentuk dan daya tahan.Biji cabe dipisahkan dari kulit dan dikeringkan beberapa waktu, sebelum di semaikan sebaiknya bibit di beridulu pestisida yang berbentuk tepung Seperti Antracol,kocide dll supaya waktu penyemaian tidak dimakan oleh hama. Lahan Penyemaian : Lahan yang sudah bersih di bikin petakan kira-kira berukuran panjang 5 m dan lebar 1,2m untuk 4000 biji bibit, Kemudian digemburkan dan di beri pupuk kandang (4 kg keadaan kering) yang sudah dicampur dengan sedikit pupuk NPK (2 ons) dan ditebar hingga merata diatas petakan. Cara menyemaikan Bibit : bibit juga ditebar hingga merata diatas petakan yang sudah diberi campuran pupuk tadi kemudian di timbun tipis dengan tanah halus. Kemudian ditutup dengan daun pisang hingga rata sampai bibit ini tumbuh nantinya, kira-kira 7-10 hari. Bibit yang sudah tumbuh di beri atap dengan menggunakan plastik transparan yang banyak di jual di pasara. Ini supa bibit terlindung dari hujan dan panas matahari lang sung Jangan lupa bibit disiran / di semprot ( bila di perlukan) hinga usia 45 hari. Bibit dengan ketinggian sekitar 10-15 cm sangat baik untuk dipindahkan kemedia tanam. 3. Penyiapan Media Tanam Dari lahan / petakan yang sudah di siapkan sebelumnya kita sudah bisa memulai penanaman, tetapi sebelumnya plastik mulsa yang sudah di pasang di lubang dengan mengunakan sebuah alat yang bisa di bikin sendiri bahkan ada juga di jual dipasaran. Alat ini bisa di buat dengan sebuah kaleng susu dengan ukuran diameter 6 cm yang di beri tangkai dengan kayu sebagai pegangan sementara di sekeliling kaleng tersebut di beri lubang dengan paku. Jarak tanam Cara menggunakan alat ini juga sederhana, Kaleng yang sudah berlubang tadi dimasukan bara tempurung kelapa sehingga kaleng akan panas dan siap di pergunakan. Mulsa di beri lubang dengan jarak 60-70 cm sementara untuk jarak disampingnya dibuat zikzak dengan jarak yang sama.Lahan barulah siap untuk d tanami.( usahakan penanaman dilakukan pada cuaca dingin karena plastik mulsa yang kena matahari bisa membuat bibit cabe tidak jadi hidup) 4. Cara Tanam Bibit cabe yang baru di tanam Penanaman Cabe tidak lah sulit, caranya sama dengan penanaman tumbuhan yang lain. Tapi untuk cabe, karena lahan telah disiapkan dengan pupuk dan cadangan makanan yang cukup kita hanya tinggal mencabutnya di persemaian dan langsung di tanam pada mulsa yang telah di lubang. Untuk menanam Cabe ini cukup satu batang untuk tiap lubang, setelah beberapa waktu dan juga dirawat dengan baik akan menjadi sebatang cabe yang berkualitas tinggi. Pada Contoh-contoh gambar yang telah kita tampilkan terlihat ada tanaman yang di tumpang sari,kebetulan kami menampilkan tanaman sayuran jenis sawi. Untuk tumpang sari bisa ditanam jenis sayuran yang lain, asal usia tanaman yang di tumpang itu berusia cepat (sekitar 1,5 bulan. Tapi kali ini kita tidak membahas pokok permasalahan tumpang sari jadi kita bahas saja lain waktu.kita masuk ketahap Berikutnya yaitu: 5. Perawatan Apapun yang kita usahakan di dalam pertanian,perawatan adalah hal yang sangat penting, kita masuk terlebih dahulu pada: A. Penyemprotan Penyemprota bisa menggunakan pestisida kimia ataupun organik, Penyemprotan dilakukan rutin minimal i kali seminggu. Jenis racun yang kita gunakan tergantung pada keadaan tanaman cabe itu sendiri dan cuaca di daerah masing-masing. kenapa demikian , Keadaan iklim juga mempengaruhi jenis pestisida kenapa demikian, ada sebagian pesrisida yang di tentukan dengan cuaca untuk penggunaanya. Jenis Pestisida yang sering di pergunakan adalah sebagai berikut – – Penyemprotan dilakukan sampai cabe habis di panen. B. Membuang tunas batang ( Merempel ) Pembuangan tunas batang ( Merempel ) Untuk kwalitas cabe yang bagus tunas batang haruslah dibuang , karena nantinya cabe ini juga akan bercabang dan cabangnya inilah yang akan di biarkan besar. Kira- kira usia tanaman cabe berusia 20 hari, pembuang tunas yang pertama kitalakukan,20 hari berikutnya pembuangan yang ke dua dan untuk terakhir menjelang pengikatan batang cabe ke tiang penyangga. sebaiknya dalam melakukan pembuangan tunas kita mengunakan gunting yang bersih. C. Tiang Penyangga Tiang Penyangga dibuat dari bambu dengan ukuran panjang 1 m lebar 3 cm dan ketebalan 2 cm.Pada ujung tiang tadi di runcing supaya gampang menancapkanya ketanah. Pemasangan tiang penyangga ini pada usia cabe 1 bulan dengan jarak sekitar jarak 5 cm dari rumpun cabe, jangan terlalu dekat karena kalau dekat bisa merusak akar yang sudah mulai menjalar. Fungsi dari tiang ini adalah agar saat cabe sudah besar rumpunya tidak digoyang oleh angin karena sudah kita ikat longgar antara batang cabe dengan tiang itu sendiri. Pengikatanya bisa kitalakukan pada usia cabe 2 bulan. 6. Panen Cabe masak siap untuk di panen Kita sudah bisa panen cabe ini di usia 4,5 bulan Tergantung apa buah cabenya sudah masak / belum. Dalam Melakukan pemanenan Jangan lupa mengambil buah yang rusak walaupun masih muda karena akan menentukan kwalitas dan daya tahan usia panen cabeBERCOCOK TANAM CABE

'Si Doel Anak Sekolahan' Dimanpaatkan Dirjen Pajak Tarik pajak

saco-indonesia.com, Barcelona FC telah melewati hadangan Cartagena dalam second leg Copa del Rey di Nou Camp (18/12). Anak asuh Gerardo Martino telah sukses menang mudah dengan skor 3-0.

Gol kemenangan Barca telah dicetak oleh Pedro di menit ke 31. Tello juga menambah keunggulan tuan rumah di pertengahan babak kedua. Neymar telah menutup kemenangan Blaugrana dua menit sebelum waktu normal telah berakhir.

Melawan Cartagena, Barcelona telah diprediksi bakal menang mudah. Prediksi tersebut telah terbukti di awal babak pertama. Tuan rumah begitu mendominasi jalannya pertandingan. Dan gol yang telah dinanti-nantikan pun akhirnya tercipta ketika laga memasuki menit ke 31. Melalui aksi Pedro, tuan rumah telah membuka keunggulan di babak pertama.

Unggul satu gol Barca terus tampil menekan ke pertahanan tim tamu. Beberapa peluang juga sempat mereka ciptakan. Namun hingga mendekati akhir babak pertama, Blaugrana belum mampu untuk menambah gol.

Dengan hasil di leg pertama lalu, Barca memang tak perlu ngoyo dalam pertandingan ini. Pasalnya, hasil kemenangan 4-1 lalu juga semakin membuat beban Barca kali ini semakin ringan. Tetapi, nampaknya Barca telah memburu kemenangan besar di leg kedua ini. Mereka tak henti-hentinya menggempur benteng pertahanan Cartagena.

Beruntung bagi tim tamu, hingga turun minum gawang mereka juga masih belum kebobolan untuk yang kedua kalinya.

Memasuki babak kedua, Barca juga masih menunjukkan dominasinya. Jika dilihat dari ball posession, tuan rumah terlihat perkasa dengan menguasai 70 persen. Sedangkan Cartagena hanya 30 persen.

Dan lagi-lagi, tim tamu sulit untuk bangkit dari tekanan tuan rumah. Di menit ke 68, Barca telah kembali menggandakan keunggulannya. Kali ini Tello yang telah mencatatkan namanya di papan skor.

Memimpin dua gol, Barca telah melakoni laga semakin nyaman. Sebaliknya, Cartagena hanya berusaha untuk bisa bertahan agar tak kembali kebobolan oleh serangan tuan rumah yang tak kunjung mengendur.

Sayang, usaha tim tamu tak dapat berjalan mulus. Dua menit menjelang bubaran, bintang Barca asal Brasil, Neymar telah menambah keunggulan timnya sekaligus telah menutup kemenangan Barca di depan publik mereka sendiri. Hingga peluit akhir dibunyikan tanda berakhirnya laga kedudukan tak berubah dan kemenangan menjadi milik Barcelona.

Susunan line-up kedua tim:

Barcelona: Pinto; Montoya, Mascherano, Puyol, Adriano (Bartra 80"); Sergi Roberto, Song, Fabregas (Iniesta 76"), Pedro (Sanchez 76"), Neymar, Tello.

Cartagena: Savu, Alex, Astrain, Mariano, Zurdo, De Lerma, Moreno, Segura (Ruiz 86"), Megias, Lopez (Fernando 6"), Menudo (Antonito 74").

BARCA TATAP PEREMPAT FINAL

SEJARAH PULAU TIDUNG

By  :  Bro Iman

 

Indonesia terkenal dengan ragam budaya dan wisatanya, tak ketinggalan tempat wisata yang berada di daerah jakarta utara ini, tepatnya di suatu pulau dengan nama pulau tidung.Banyak orang berdatangan untuk berwisata ke pulau indah ini, karena keunikan dan keindahan pulau ini, tempat wisata ini tentunya mempunyai sejarah tersendiri, kenapa harus dinamakan pulau tidung.mari kita simak sejarahnya pulau tidung.


Pada Awalnya Pulau Tidung diambil dari nama tempat yang ada di daerah Kalimantan Timur , tepatnya dari desa malinau yaitu "tana tidung"Kok diberi  nama "tidung" kenapa ? karena yang memberi nama pada waktu itu adalah seorang Raja besar dan terkenal di kalimantan waktu itu, dari suku Tidung.

Pada awalnya indonesia masih di jajah oleh kolonial yang bengis dan kejam, siapa yang tidak ingat penjajahan belanda selama 3,5 abad. Yang mana seorang raja ini awalnya diusir oleh kolonial belanda, karena tidak mau diajak untuk bekerjasama dan menjadi anteknya di kalimantan timur ,Hal ini di dasarkan karena ia  seorang raja sekaligus tokoh pahlawan yang tidak ingin di jajah oleh kolonial belanda pada waktu itu. Nama dari Raja pada waktu itu adalah Raja Pandita alias Kaca alias Sapu.

Dalam perjalannanya di usir dari tana tidung, akhirnya raja pandita meneruskan perjalannanya tak tentu arah dan tujuan, mau kemana, ketemu siapa, diliputi rasa bingung yang tak karuan.Sepanjang perjalanan, akhirnya
dia sampai di jepara, setelah itu ia meneruskan perjalanan nya dengan tekad yang mulia ini, akhirnya sampailah ia di pulau terpencil, di pinggiran jakarta, yang sekarang terkenal dengan nama pulau tidung ini.

Hari berganti hari, terus berlalu, hingga berganti bulan dan tahun, yang mana dengan keberadaan raja pandita di pulau tidung itu tidak ada satu orangpun yang tahu kalau dia adalah seorang raja yang pertamakali datang ke pulau tidung itu adalah seorang raja dari kalimantan Timur.Karena raja pandita pergi dari kalimantan timur, tidak membawa gelar sebagai raja, karena waktu itu tidak di dampingi oleh para prajuritnya.Raja pandita pada waktu itu hanya dikenal dengan sebutan "Kaca".
Sampai meninggalnya pun Kaca hanya dikenal sebagai masyarakat biasa yang tidak beda dengan masyarakat lainnya.


Beberapa puluh Tahun kemudian datanglah sekelompok keluarga Raja Pandita dari Kalimantan Timur dan mencari tahu tentang keberadaan raja pandita.Pulau ini mengapa bernama Pulau Tidung? singkat cerita keluarga Raja Pandita dari Kaltim bertemu dengan keluarga Kaca di Pulau Tidung  ketika keluarga Raja Pandita Bertanya kepada keluarga Kaca dan ternyata menurut kelurga Raja Pandita bahwa Kaca adalah nama kecil Raja Pandita sebelum diangkat dari Raja.
dan akhirnya keduanya mengambil kesimpulan bahwa nama Pulau Tidung di beri nama dari Raja Pandita yang berasal dari tanah tidung Kalimantan Timur.

Itulah sejarah singkat tentang keberadaan pulau tidung yang sekarang banyak di kunjungi oleh wisatawan,
baik dari dalam negeri, maupun luar negeri.

Sejarah yang lainnya tentang pulau pulau di sekitar pulau tidung akan saya ceritakan di www.pulautidungjaya.com

Late in April, after Native American actors walked off in disgust from the set of Adam Sandler’s latest film, a western sendup that its distributor, Netflix, has defended as being equally offensive to all, a glow of pride spread through several Native American communities.

Tantoo Cardinal, a Canadian indigenous actress who played Black Shawl in “Dances With Wolves,” recalled thinking to herself, “It’s come.” Larry Sellers, who starred as Cloud Dancing in the 1990s television show “Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman,” thought, “It’s about time.” Jesse Wente, who is Ojibwe and directs film programming at the TIFF Bell Lightbox in Toronto, found himself encouraged and surprised. There are so few film roles for indigenous actors, he said, that walking off the set of a major production showed real mettle.

But what didn’t surprise Mr. Wente was the content of the script. According to the actors who walked off the set, the film, titled “The Ridiculous Six,” included a Native American woman who passes out and is revived after white men douse her with alcohol, and another woman squatting to urinate while lighting a peace pipe. “There’s enough history at this point to have set some expectations around these sort of Hollywood depictions,” Mr. Wente said.

The walkout prompted a rhetorical “What do you expect from an Adam Sandler film?,” and a Netflix spokesman said that in the movie, blacks, Mexicans and whites were lampooned as well. But Native American actors and critics said a broader issue was at stake. While mainstream portrayals of native peoples have, Mr. Wente said, become “incrementally better” over the decades, he and others say, they remain far from accurate and reflect a lack of opportunities for Native American performers. What’s more, as Native Americans hunger for representation on screen, critics say the absence of three-dimensional portrayals has very real off-screen consequences.

“Our people are still healing from historical trauma,” said Loren Anthony, one of the actors who walked out. “Our youth are still trying to figure out who they are, where they fit in this society. Kids are killing themselves. They’re not proud of who they are.” They also don’t, he added, see themselves on prime time television or the big screen. Netflix noted while about five people walked off the “The Ridiculous Six” set, 100 or so Native American actors and extras stayed.

But in interviews, nearly a dozen Native American actors and film industry experts said that Mr. Sandler’s humor perpetuated decades-old negative stereotypes. Mr. Anthony said such depictions helped feed the despondency many Native Americans feel, with deadly results: Native Americans have the highest suicide rate out of all the country’s ethnicities.

The on-screen problem is twofold, Mr. Anthony and others said: There’s a paucity of roles for Native Americans — according to the Screen Actors Guild in 2008 they accounted for 0.3 percent of all on-screen parts (those figures have yet to be updated), compared to about 2 percent of the general population — and Native American actors are often perceived in a narrow way.

In his Peabody Award-winning documentary “Reel Injun,” the Cree filmmaker Neil Diamond explored Hollywood depictions of Native Americans over the years, and found they fell into a few stereotypical categories: the Noble Savage, the Drunk Indian, the Mystic, the Indian Princess, the backward tribal people futilely fighting John Wayne and manifest destiny. While the 1990 film “Dances With Wolves” won praise for depicting Native Americans as fully fleshed out human beings, not all indigenous people embraced it. It was still told, critics said, from the colonialists’ point of view. In an interview, John Trudell, a Santee Sioux writer, actor (“Thunderheart”) and the former chairman of the American Indian Movement, described the film as “a story of two white people.”

“God bless ‘Dances with Wolves,’ ” Michael Horse, who played Deputy Hawk in “Twin Peaks,” said sarcastically. “Even ‘Avatar.’ Someone’s got to come save the tribal people.”

Dan Spilo, a partner at Industry Entertainment who represents Adam Beach, one of today’s most prominent Native American actors, said while typecasting dogs many minorities, it is especially intractable when it comes to Native Americans. Casting directors, he said, rarely cast them as police officers, doctors or lawyers. “There’s the belief that the Native American character should be on reservations or riding a horse,” he said.

“We don’t see ourselves,” Mr. Horse said. “We’re still an antiquated culture to them, and to the rest of the world.”

Ms. Cardinal said she was once turned down for the role of the wife of a child-abusing cop because the filmmakers felt that casting her would somehow be “too political.”

Another sore point is the long run of white actors playing American Indians, among them Burt Lancaster, Rock Hudson, Audrey Hepburn and, more recently, Johnny Depp, whose depiction of Tonto in the 2013 film “Lone Ranger,” was viewed as racist by detractors. There are, of course, exceptions. The former A&E series “Longmire,” which, as it happens, will now be on Netflix, was roundly praised for its depiction of life on a Northern Cheyenne reservation, with Lou Diamond Phillips, who is of Cherokee descent, playing a Northern Cheyenne man.

Others also point to the success of Mr. Beach, who played a Mohawk detective in “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” and landed a starring role in the forthcoming D C Comics picture “Suicide Squad.” Mr. Beach said he had come across insulting scripts backed by people who don’t see anything wrong with them.

“I’d rather starve than do something that is offensive to my ancestral roots,” Mr. Beach said. “But I think there will always be attempts to drawn on the weakness of native people’s struggles. The savage Indian will always be the savage Indian. The white man will always be smarter and more cunning. The cavalry will always win.”

The solution, Mr. Wente, Mr. Trudell and others said, lies in getting more stories written by and starring Native Americans. But Mr. Wente noted that while independent indigenous film has blossomed in the last two decades, mainstream depictions have yet to catch up. “You have to stop expecting for Hollywood to correct it, because there seems to be no ability or desire to correct it,” Mr. Wente said.

There have been calls to boycott Netflix but, writing for Indian Country Today Media Network, which first broke news of the walk off, the filmmaker Brian Young noted that the distributor also offered a number of films by or about Native Americans.

The furor around “The Ridiculous Six” may drive more people to see it. Then one of the questions that Mr. Trudell, echoing others, had about the film will be answered: “Who the hell laughs at this stuff?”

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

Many bodies prepared for cremation last week in Kathmandu were of young men from Gongabu, a common stopover for Nepali migrant workers headed overseas. Credit Daniel Berehulak for The New York Times

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.

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.
