Langkah-Langkah Cara Memasang kamera cctv

Berikut adalah tips dasar langkah-langkah cara untuk memasang kamera CCTV (Closed Circuit TeleVision):

1. Tentukan kabel yang sesuai

Untuk kabel CCTV, Anda juga dapat dengan menggunakan kabel RG59 Siamese yang telah terdiri dari kabel video dan kabel power (positif dan negatif). Kabel RG59 Siamese juga merupakan kabel standard yang sering digunakan untuk instalasi CCTV.

2. Tentukan lokasi dan area pantauan CCTV

Lokasi pemasangan CCTV juga bisa Anda tentukan berdasarkan jarak pandang yang hendak dimonitoring (apakah dekat atau jauh) dan apakah untuk dalam keadaan gelap atau terang. Dari situ baru Anda bisa tentukan titik pemasangan kamera CCTV.

3. Prioritaskan penempatan kamera CCTV di bawah atap/ tempat terlindung

Terutama untuk pemasangan CCTV di rumah, prioritaskan letak posisi kamera CCTV dibawah atap karena bisa melindungi kamera CCTV Anda dari hujan, angin, dan sebagainya. Selain itu, penempatan di bawah atap juga biasanya telah memberikan tampilan view yang lebih baik dan mudah untuk menarik kabel jaringan.

4. Cari titik untuk mulai menarik kabel dari luar ke dalam

Setelah menentukan titik pemasangan CCTV, berikutnya adalah mencari titik masuk untuk dapat menarik kabel RG56 dari luar ke dalam.

5. Penempatan monitor dan DVR

Monitor dan DVR adalah alat-alat yang telah melengkapi sistem CCTV Anda. Jika kamera CCTV biasanya ditempatkan diluar, maka DVR dan monitor digunakan untuk dapat membantu pemantauan dari dalam ruangan. Tentukan tempat dimana monitor dan DVR akan diletakkan.

6. Memulai penarikan kabel

Setelah didapatkan titik kamera CCTV dan lokasi penempatan monitor dan DVR, maka berikutnya adalah menarik kabel RG59 yang telah menghubungkan antara CCTV dengan monitor dan DVR.

CARA MEMASANG CCTV

JAKARTA, Saco- Indonesia.com — Anggota Komisi D DPRD DKI Muhammad Sanusi mengungkapkan, pihaknya menemukan anggaran pos tak terduga sebesar Rp 300 miliar di Dinas Pekerjaan Umum DKI. Menurutnya, hal itu berpotensi dikorupsi.

Ditemui di kantornya, Selasa (4/6/2013) pagi, Sanusi mengungkapkan, temuan dana itu didapat saat Komisi D DPRD DKI melakukan rapat kerja dengan Dinas PU DKI dan sejumlah pejabat lain. Menurutnya, Dinas PU memiliki dana paling besar dari dinas lain di Pemprov DKI, yakni Rp 7 triliun.

"Tapi penyerapannya rendah sekali. Dana tidak terprediksi atau sewaktu-waktu ada Rp 300 miliar. Ini sangat mungkin dikorupsi," ujar Sanusi.

Sanusi menjelaskan, potensi korupsi yang bisa terjadi adalah melalui proyek tambal sulam jalan di DKI. Dengan dana tersebut, Dinas PU dapat sewaktu-waktu menjalankan proyek tambal sulam sejumlah jalan berlubang di DKI Jakarta tanpa perencanaan akurat sebelumnya.

"Misalnya jalan bolong dikit ditambal dan bolong lagi. Ini kan jadinya proyek terus. Harusnya enggak boleh, mereka harus bisa prediksi jalan kapan habis masanya, baru itu benar," tutur Sanusi.

Sanusi menilai, persoalan ini harus ditangani oleh Gubernur DKI secara langsung. Jangan sampai, keberhasilan Joko Widodo dan Basuki Tjahaja Purnama tercoreng dengan penyerapan anggaran rendah hanya pada Dinas Pekerjaan Umum DKI Jakarta.

Kompas.com telah berusaha mengonfirmasi hal tersebut kepada Kepala Dinas Pekerjaan Umum DKI Manggas Budi Siahaan. Namun, ponsel yang bersangkutan tak kunjung tersambung.

WAJIBNYA BERDOA
Beternak sapi di kanagarian Pandaisikek sudah berlangsung sangat lama dan sudah turun temurun. Bagi sebagian besar masyarakat beternak (bagubalo) adalah sebagai sambilan, lahan yang subur dan gampang ditumbuhi oleh rumput menjadi suaktu yang sia-sia jika tidak dimanfaatkan, karena itulah petani di kanagarian pandaisikek memanfaatkan kesempatan tersebut untuk beternak disamping penghasilan utamanya bercocok tanan sayuran. Sapi yang dikelola secara tradisional di nagari Pandaisikek Sapi yang ada di nagari pandaisikek pada umumnya adalah milik pengusaha lokal ( toke ternak) yang digembalakan oleh masyarakat petani dengan system bagi hasil,hanya sebagian kecil saja yang sudah milik pribadi. Pembagian hasil biasanya dilakukan setelah sapi di jual dan keuntungan dari penjualan tersebut di bagi dua dengan pemilik. Petani mengembalakan sapi tersebut biasanya 1-2 tahun bisa lebih jika petani masih sanggup untuk pengemukan sapi tersebut. Semua masih dilakukan secara tradisional, Ternak biasanya diberi makan 2 kali sehari dengan pakan rumput segar dengan takaran yang sangat banyak, kira-kira 2 karung besar dengan berat lebih kurang 60-70 Kg perkarung. Persiapan pakan menghabiskan waktu 1 jam perkarungnya, jadi jika 2 karung menghabiskan waktu 2 jam perhari, ini pun jika rumput sudah tersedia di sekitar kebun. Penghasilan petani pertahunya lebih kurang 1 Juta sampai 1,5 juta rupiah, tergantung pada perkembangan dan hasil penjualan ternak tersebut. Setelah beberapakali kami teliti dan kunjungi peternakan yang dikelola secara modern di Kodya Payokumbuah Sumaterabarat ternyata system peternakan ini sangat efisien dan menguntungkan. Untuk menggembalakan sapi sekitar 100 ekor lebih hanya mengunakan tenaga kerja 3 orang,disana kami melihat tidak ada yang terbuang dari kotoran sampai air seni sapi tersebut dikelola untuk pupuk dan racun organik untuk tanaman. Semuanya di olah secara modern dan mengunakan mesin. Perkembangan sapinya sangat pesat, Sapi betina untuk di kembangbiakan dan pejantan untuk pedaging. Pertumbuhan sapi-sapi disana menargetkan 2,5 sampai 3 Kg perhari untuk setiap ekornya. Setelah kami tanyakan pada pengelola peternakan apasaja pakan, obat-obatan ,untuk ternak ternyata semuanya juga ada di nagari pandaisikek. Pakan yang berasal dari jerami kering yang di fermentasi dengan campuran air gula tebu (saka, tangguli), pupuk urea dan sedikit obat-obatan ( maaf kami lupa namanya walau sudah dijelaskan secara detil oleh pengelola , tapi ini bisa ditanyakan kembali).kemudian pakan yang lain adalah Ampas Tahu atau kulit Ubi Kayu. Insyaallah disini pengelola peternakan tidak ada yang di rahasiakan pada kami bahkan mereka bersedia meberika pelatihan dan terjun langsung dipeternakan mereka. Setelah kami tanyakan pada Insinyur peternakan baik dari pemerintahan maupun dari Insinyur lain di bidang peternakan dan pertanian, mereka menjelaskan bahwa di nagari pandaisikek sangat cocok untuk peternakan sapi ini dengan keadaan cuaca yang sangat mendukung. Peternakan secara modern ini memang membutuhkan modal yang sangat besar. Alangkah baiknya jika pengusaha local bisa mengembangkan peternakan secara modern di nagari pandaisikek sehinga bisa membantu perekonomian masayarakat,tentunya juga mengunakan Majamen yang modern dan matang supaya tidak terjadi ada pihak yang dirugikan dan kita yakin pemerintah nantinya juga akan ikut membantu.

Majelis hakim pada Pengadilan Tindak Pidana Korupsi (Tipikor) Jakarta, menolak keberatan (eksepsi) yang diajukan oleh terdakwa dalam kasus dugaan suap pengurusan sengketa pemilihan kepala daerah Kabupaten Lebak, Banten, dan Pilkada Lampung Selatan, Susi Tur Andayani alias Uci. "Menyatakan keberatan terdakwa Susi Tur Andayani tidak dapat diterima. Menyatakan surat dakwaan jaksa penuntut umum sah sebagai dasar untuk memeriksa dan memutus perkara," tegas ketua majelis hakim, Gosen Butar-Butar, saat membacakan putusan sela di Pengadilan Tindak Pidana Korupsi (Tipikor), Jakarta, Senin (10/3/2014). Sementara, anggota majelis hakim 3, Sofialdi, telah mengajukan perbedaan pendapat dalam putusan sela itu. Menurutnya, surat dakwaan jaksa penuntut umum terhadap Susi Tur Andayani tidak cermat dan kabur. Sebabnya adalah, pasal yang disangkakan buat Susi tidak tepat. "Ada ketidaksesuaian dari uraian tindak pidana dengan dakwaan. Terdakwa bukan pelaku turut serta. Justru terdakwa seharusnya didakwa sebagai penerima dengan Akil Mochtar. Surat dakwaan itu obscuur (kabur) dan harus dibatalkan," jelas Hakim Sofialdi. Hakim Sofialdi telah menambahkan, seharusnya jaksa mendakwa Susi dengan pasal penyuapan khusus terhadap hakim melalui advokat. Yakni Pasal 6 ayat 1 huruf a atau b atau Pasal 6 ayat 2 Undang-Undang pemberantasan tindak pidana korupsi, dan bukan Pasal 12 huruf c. "Dakwaan kesatu dan kedua tidak cermat. Terdakwa seharusnya didakwa dengan pasal suap khusus terhadap hakim. Apalagi yang memberi suap adalah advokat," terang Hakim Sofialdi. Namun demikian, Hakim Ketua Gosen Butar-Butar tetap menyatakan surat dakwaan jaksa penuntut umum dan sah. "Ada perbedaan wajar. Tetapi musyawarah diambil dengan suara terbanyak. Atas putusan ini terdakwa juga berhak mengajukan upaya hukum, tapi bersamaan dalam putusan akhir," sambung Hakim Ketua Gosen Butar-Butar. Sidang lanjutan Susi Pemeriksaan perkara dilanjutkan pada Senin 17 Maret pekan depan, dengan agenda menghadirkan saksi.HAKIM TOLAK EKSEPSI SUSI TUR ANDAYANI

Since a white police officer, Darren Wilson fatally shot unarmed black teenager, Michael Brown, in a confrontation last August in Ferguson, Mo., there have been many other cases in which the police have shot and killed suspects, some of them unarmed. Mr. Brown's death set off protests throughout the country, pushing law enforcement into the spotlight and sparking a public debate on police tactics. Here is a selection of police shootings that have been reported by news organizations since Mr. Brown's death. In some cases, investigations are continuing.

WASHINGTON — The former deputy director of the C.I.A. asserts in a forthcoming book that Republicans, in their eagerness to politicize the killing of the American ambassador to Libya, repeatedly distorted the agency’s analysis of events. But he also argues that the C.I.A. should get out of the business of providing “talking points” for administration officials in national security events that quickly become partisan, as happened after the Benghazi attack in 2012.

The official, Michael J. Morell, dismisses the allegation that the United States military and C.I.A. officers “were ordered to stand down and not come to the rescue of their comrades,” and he says there is “no evidence” to support the charge that “there was a conspiracy between C.I.A. and the White House to spin the Benghazi story in a way that would protect the political interests of the president and Secretary Clinton,” referring to the secretary of state at the time, Hillary Rodham Clinton.

But he also concludes that the White House itself embellished some of the talking points provided by the Central Intelligence Agency and had blocked him from sending an internal study of agency conclusions to Congress.

“I finally did so without asking,” just before leaving government, he writes, and after the White House released internal emails to a committee investigating the State Department’s handling of the issue.

A lengthy congressional investigation remains underway, one that many Republicans hope to use against Mrs. Clinton in the 2016 election cycle.

In parts of the book, “The Great War of Our Time” (Twelve), Mr. Morell praises his C.I.A. colleagues for many successes in stopping terrorist attacks, but he is surprisingly critical of other C.I.A. failings — and those of the National Security Agency.

Soon after Mr. Morell retired in 2013 after 33 years in the agency, President Obama appointed him to a commission reviewing the actions of the National Security Agency after the disclosures of Edward J. Snowden, a former intelligence contractor who released classified documents about the government’s eavesdropping abilities. Mr. Morell writes that he was surprised by what he found.

“You would have thought that of all the government entities on the planet, the one least vulnerable to such grand theft would have been the N.S.A.,” he writes. “But it turned out that the N.S.A. had left itself vulnerable.”

He concludes that most Wall Street firms had better cybersecurity than the N.S.A. had when Mr. Snowden swept information from its systems in 2013. While he said he found himself “chagrined by how well the N.S.A. was doing” compared with the C.I.A. in stepping up its collection of data on intelligence targets, he also sensed that the N.S.A., which specializes in electronic spying, was operating without considering the implications of its methods.

“The N.S.A. had largely been collecting information because it could, not necessarily in all cases because it should,” he says.

The book is to be released next week.

Mr. Morell was a career analyst who rose through the ranks of the agency, and he ended up in the No. 2 post. He served as President George W. Bush’s personal intelligence briefer in the first months of his presidency — in those days, he could often be spotted at the Starbucks in Waco, Tex., catching up on his reading — and was with him in the schoolhouse in Florida on the morning of Sept. 11, 2001, when the Bush presidency changed in an instant.

Mr. Morell twice took over as acting C.I.A. director, first when Leon E. Panetta was appointed secretary of defense and then when retired Gen. David H. Petraeus resigned over an extramarital affair with his biographer, a relationship that included his handing her classified notes of his time as America’s best-known military commander.

Mr. Morell says he first learned of the affair from Mr. Petraeus only the night before he resigned, and just as the Benghazi events were turning into a political firestorm. While praising Mr. Petraeus, who had told his deputy “I am very lucky” to run the C.I.A., Mr. Morell writes that “the organization did not feel the same way about him.” The former general “created the impression through the tone of his voice and his body language that he did not want people to disagree with him (which was not true in my own interaction with him),” he says.

But it is his account of the Benghazi attacks — and how the C.I.A. was drawn into the debate over whether the Obama White House deliberately distorted its account of the death of Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens — that is bound to attract attention, at least partly because of its relevance to the coming presidential election. The initial assessments that the C.I.A. gave to the White House said demonstrations had preceded the attack. By the time analysts reversed their opinion, Susan E. Rice, now the national security adviser, had made a series of statements on Sunday talk shows describing the initial assessment. The controversy and other comments Ms. Rice made derailed Mr. Obama’s plan to appoint her as secretary of state.

The experience prompted Mr. Morell to write that the C.I.A. should stay out of the business of preparing talking points — especially on issues that are being seized upon for “political purposes.” He is critical of the State Department for not beefing up security in Libya for its diplomats, as the C.I.A., he said, did for its employees.

But he concludes that the assault in which the ambassador was killed took place “with little or no advance planning” and “was not well organized.” He says the attackers “did not appear to be looking for Americans to harm. They appeared intent on looting and conducting some vandalism,” setting fires that killed Mr. Stevens and a security official, Sean Smith.

Mr. Morell paints a picture of an agency that was struggling, largely unsuccessfully, to understand dynamics in the Middle East and North Africa when the Arab Spring broke out in late 2011 in Tunisia. The agency’s analysts failed to see the forces of revolution coming — and then failed again, he writes, when they told Mr. Obama that the uprisings would undercut Al Qaeda by showing there was a democratic pathway to change.

“There is no good explanation for our not being able to see the pressures growing to dangerous levels across the region,” he writes. The agency had again relied too heavily “on a handful of strong leaders in the countries of concern to help us understand what was going on in the Arab street,” he says, and those leaders themselves were clueless.

Moreover, an agency that has always overvalued secretly gathered intelligence and undervalued “open source” material “was not doing enough to mine the wealth of information available through social media,” he writes. “We thought and told policy makers that this outburst of popular revolt would damage Al Qaeda by undermining the group’s narrative,” he writes.

Instead, weak governments in Egypt, and the absence of governance from Libya to Yemen, were “a boon to Islamic extremists across both the Middle East and North Africa.”

Mr. Morell is gentle about most of the politicians he dealt with — he expresses admiration for both Mr. Bush and Mr. Obama, though he accuses former Vice President Dick Cheney of deliberately implying a connection between Al Qaeda and Iraq that the C.I.A. had concluded probably did not exist. But when it comes to the events leading up to the Bush administration’s decision to go to war in Iraq, he is critical of his own agency.

Mr. Morell concludes that the Bush White House did not have to twist intelligence on Saddam Hussein’s alleged effort to rekindle the country’s work on weapons of mass destruction.

“The view that hard-liners in the Bush administration forced the intelligence community into its position on W.M.D. is just flat wrong,” he writes. “No one pushed. The analysts were already there and they had been there for years, long before Bush came to office.”

Hard but Hopeful Home to ‘Lot of Freddies’

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

“Mazel tov,” his father replied.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

“It is,” his father agreed.

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.”

Ms. Plisetskaya, renowned for her fluidity of movement, expressive acting and willful personality, danced on the Bolshoi stage well into her 60s, but her life was shadowed by Stalinism.
