saco-indonesia.com, Minimarket Alfamart Ahmad Yani yang berlokasi di samping RSUD Kabupaten Tangerang,  Jalan Ahmad Yani, Kota Tangerang , telah dibobol maling, Rabu (29/1) dinihari. Namun pelaku tidak berhasil mencuri uang, hanya menggasak puluhan dus rokok.

Aksi ini telah dinilai warga sangat berani karena lokasinya hanya beberapa ratus meter dari markas Polres Metro Tangerang. Koordinator Alfamart Wilayah Tangerang Supriyadi juga menjelaskan, peristiwa itu juga diketahui ketika salah satu karyawan, Slamet, telah membuka minimarket pukul 08.00 WIB.

Dia juga mendapati kondisi barang-barang sudah dalam keadaan berantakan. “Setelah dicek, ternyata atap di bagian gudang jebol, kemungkinan pelaku masuk lewat situ,” katanya.

Supriyadi juga menjelaskan, berdasarkan rekaman CCTV, pelaku yang berjumlah dua orang telah berhasil membobol toko sekitar pukul 04.55 WIB. Mereka telah menutup wajahnya dengan baju. “Mereka hanya mengambil rokok, kalau uang tidak ada yang hilang karena sudah disetorkan karyawan sebelum toko tutup. Jumlah kerugian masih kita hitung,” katanya.

Kapolsek Tangerang Kompol Sukarna juga menyatakan, pihaknya juga masih harus menyelidiki kasus pencurian yang telah terjadi di Alfamart tersebut. “Kami juga sudah mengamankan CCTV untuk dapat mengembangkan kasus.

MINIMARKET DEKAT KANTOR POLISI DIBOBOL MALING

Sedikit latar belakang bagaimana besi beton dibuat

Besi beton diproduksi secara umum terdiri dari 3 jenis: besi beton permukaan polos (round bar), besi beton ulir (deformed bar) dan besi beton kanal u (shape). Bahan baku besi beton adalah billet, yang juga merupakan balok baja berukuran 100 x 100 mm, 110 x 110 mm, 120 x 120mm dengan panjang masing-masing sekitar 170 mm. Bahan baku dari billet sendiri adalah besi-besi tua, skrap, serta bahan penolong seperti kokas, grafit, lime, ferro alloys yang dilebur dengan berbagai metode. Bahan penolong tadi digunakan untuk mendapatkan unsur carbon (C), Si (silicon), Mn (Mangan) yang akan sangat berpengaruh pada qualitas besi beton.
 
Mutu besi beton yang baik adalah yang telah memiliki kekuatan tarik (standard yield strength / Ys) minimal 24 kg / mm2. Kadar carbon berpengaruh besar kepada sifat mekanik dari besi beton. Kadar carbon yang terlalu besar akan membuat besi beton menjadi lebih getas dan akan meningkatkan kekerasan dan kekuatan tarik tetapi keuletannya cenderung menurun. Kadar unsur silikon berpengaruh terhadap struktur mikro besi beton. Kadar silikon yang rendah mengakibatkan besi menjadi kropos. Kadar unsur mangan berpengaruh besar pada keuletan besi beton. Unsur mangan yang terlalu banyak dapat meningkatkan keuletan tetapi mengurangi kekerasan.

Cara menghitung berat besi beton SNI (Standard Nasional Indonesia)
 
Polos dengan grade U24 (Standard Yield Strength: 24 kg / mm2)

Ulir dengan grade U40 (Standard Yield Strength: 40 kg / mm2)

Berat (dalam kg) = diameter (mm) * diameter (mm) * panjang (m) * 0.006165

0.006165 merupakan coefisien dalam mencari berat besi beton.

Sebagai contoh besi dengan diameter 10mm dan panjang 12m mempunyai berat

10*10*12*0.006165 = 7.398 kg

Untuk daerah bali dan sekitarnya, besi yang banyak dipasarkan adalah besi dari PT Hanil Jaya Steel - Surabaya. Hal ini dikarenakan biaya transportasi yang lebih murah dan kualitas besi beton yang baik. Besi beton SNI dari pabrik Hanil mempunyai toleransi 0.2mm dengan panjang 12m. Besi beton jenis ini mempunyai marking seperti "HIJ SNI 16mm" untuk ukuran 16mm.

Besi Beton Ulir/Sirip SNI 13mm

Besi Beton Polos SNI 10mm

Contoh diatas adalah besi beton ulir SNI 13mm (S13 = Sirip 13) dan besi beton polos SNI 10mm (P10 = Polos 10)

Selain besi beton jenis SNI, terdapat juga besi beton NON-SNI atau sering kali disebut BANCI. Kekuatan tarikan atau yield strength dari besi beton jenis ini tidak dapat dipastikan. Untuk besi beton dengan marking HJ menurut informasi dari pabrik mempunyai kekuatan U19-20 untuk yang jenis polos dan untuk jenis ulir mempunya kekuatan U25-30. Toleransi untuk besi beton jenis ini biasanya lebih besar sampai 0.3mm dengan panjang 12m dan terdapat marking dengan berbagai tanda salah satunya HJ.

Besi Beton NON SNI Ulir/Sirip 13mm

Besi Beton NON SNI Ulir/Sirip 13mm (Ukuran Sket 12.5mm)
 
Terdapat lagi jenis besi beton tarikan. Besi beton jenis ini biasanya tidak mempunyai panjang 12m dan tidak terdapat marking atau tanda.
 
Perhatian!

Terdapat fenomena belakangan ini banyak penjual menjual kawat baja dan bukan besi beton. Besi beton dengan diameter ukuran 6-10mm yang sering kali menjadi korban. Fungsi dari kawat baja sangat berbeda dengan besi beton. Kawat baja berfungsi untuk pengikat dan besi beton berfungsi untuk penyangga. Sehingga kekuatan tarikan kawat baja jauh dibawah kekuatan besi beton. Hanya saja diameter kawat baja ini sama besar dengan besi beton ukuran tertentu. Hal ini sering kali digunakan untuk mendapatkan pasar atau pun mengeruk keuntungan maximal.
 
Anda dapat mempercayakan supplier besi anda kepada kami. Kami hanya menjual besi dari PT Hanil Jaya Steel - Surabaya dengan marking HIJ untuk besi beton SNI dan marking HJ untuk besi beton NON-SNI.

Cara Memilih Material Pipa

"PIPA SEAMLESS" Material pipa ada berbagai jenis. Bagaimana cara untuk menentukan material yang harus digunakan? Untuk dapat menentukan material, terutama untuk bidang industri, faktor yang paling penting adalah fluida apa yang akan mengalir didalamnya. Selain itu, kondisi luar dari pipa juga akan mempengaruhi. Dan terakhir, tentu saja dalam sisi ekonomi juga akan menjadi dasar pemilihan material.
Pipa juga dapat dibagi menjadi 2 bagian besar. Pipa dari logam dan non-logam. Logam telah terdiri dari carbon steel, stainless steel, aluminium, nickel dan lainnya. Berikut ini adalah contoh dalam desain pipa untuk pabrik industri gas alam, minyak, atau pabrik kimia lainnya.
Pertama, insinyur proses harus bisa menghitung apa dan berapa banyak macam kandungan yang akan melewati pipa. Pada dasarnya, semua pipa untuk proses biasanya harus memakai pipa logam dan dimulai dari material carbon steel yang paling murah.
Akibat aliran fluida, bagian dalam pipa akan mengalami korosi, dan salah satu cara untuk dapat menetapkan kecepatan korosi adalah memakai grafik de Waard – Milliams nomograph. Grafik ini membantu untuk dapat menentukan berapa kecepatan korosi (mm/tahun) yang telah disebabkan adanya kandungan CO2 dalam fluida.
Problem disebabkan korosi juga dapat diatasi dengan menambah ketebalan pipa sebesar kecepatan korosi dikali tahun lamanya pabrik didesain. Tetapi, jika total ketebalan yang dibutuhkan untuk dapat mengatasi korosi itu terlalu tebal, pipa akan menjadi sangat tebal dan tidak efektif dalam pembangunannya. Untuk keadaan ini, pipa dari stainless steel telah menjadi pilihan selanjutnya.
Selain korosi, suhu fluida juga dapat menentukan material pipa. Semakin rendah suhu, logam akan menjadi mudah mengalami retakan. Ini karena sifat brittle (getas)  logam bertambah pada suhu rendah . Stainless steel merupakan salah satu yang tahan akan suhu rendah. Karena itu, untuk cryogenic service (fluida dengan suhu operasi dibawah -196 degC) stainless steel adalah material yang cocok dibandingkan dengan carbon steel.
Stainless steel sering disebut juga corrosion resistance alloy (campuran logam tahan korosi) dan tentunya akan lebih mahal jika dibandingkan carbon steel. Stainless steel bisa dibagi menjadi beberapa jenis, contohnya austenitic, feritic, martenistic, duplex dan high alloy stainless steel (campuran tinggi logam stainless steel). Sayangnya, stainless steel tidak tahan terhadap semua jenis korosi, terutama korosi yang disebabkan oleh klorida, sulfida serta fluida asam (sour fluid) lainnya.
Untuk sistem pipa yang mengalirkan fluida asam (piping system for sour service) biasanya di desain berdasarkan standar NACE (National Association of Corrosion Engineers) MR0175. Mulai tahun 2003, standar NACE MR0175 bersatu dengan ISO 15156 dan yang telah memiliki syarat desain yang sulit dibandingkan edisi tahun sebelumnya.

Berdasarkan NACE MR0175/ISO 15156, penggunaan austenitic stainless steel telah dibatasi oleh kombinasi dari kadar khlorida, H2S (hydrogen sulfide) dan suhu fluida. Jika austenitic stainless steel tidak dapat digunakan, maka penggunaan duplex atau high alloy stainless steel merupakan pilihan selanjutnya. Jika duplex atau high alloy stainless steel juga tidak dapat digunakan, maka pilihan selanjutnya adalah menggunakan logam campuran nikel seperti incoloy dan inconel.
Semakin tahan terhadap berbagai korosi, semakin mahal harga material tersebut. Untuk dapat mengurangi biaya, pengaplikasian cladding atau overlay juga merupakan salah satu alternatif. Misalnya dengan menggunakan pipa dari carbon steel dengan dilapisi logam mahal pada bagian dalamnya saja yang bersentuhan langsung dengan fluida sumber korosi akan bisa menekan biaya tanpa mengurangi ketahanan terhadap korosi.
Pemilihan material ini bukan hanya untuk pipa, tetapi juga berlaku untuk bejana (vessel), katup (valve) dan elemen pipa lainnya. Untuk katup, walaupun material dari badan katup bisa memakai carbon steel, tetapi bagian dimana korosi tidak diperbolehkan untuk dapat menjaga kemampuan katup untuk menyekat (sering disebut sebagai trim, seperti bagian valve seat, stem dan lainnya), maka penggunaan stainless steel atau logam tahan korosi lainnya menjadi keharusan.
Pada saat melakukan pemilihan material yang sebenarnya, mungkin tidak akan semudah yang dijabarkan diatas, tetapi secara umum, begitulah proses pemilihan material pada saat mendesain pabrik industri.

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.”

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.

Nepal’s Young Men, Lost to Migration, Then a Quake

From sea to shining sea, or at least from one side of the Hudson to the other, politicians you have barely heard of are being accused of wrongdoing. There were so many court proceedings involving public officials on Monday that it was hard to keep up.

In Newark, two underlings of Gov. Chris Christie were arraigned on charges that they were in on the truly deranged plot to block traffic leading onto the George Washington Bridge.

Ten miles away, in Lower Manhattan, Dean G. Skelos, the leader of the New York State Senate, and his son, Adam B. Skelos, were arrested by the Federal Bureau of Investigation on accusations of far more conventional political larceny, involving a job with a sewer company for the son and commissions on title insurance and bond work.

The younger man managed to receive a 150 percent pay increase from the sewer company even though, as he said on tape, he “literally knew nothing about water or, you know, any of that stuff,” according to a criminal complaint the United States attorney’s office filed.

The success of Adam Skelos, 32, was attributed by prosecutors to his father’s influence as the leader of the Senate and as a potentate among state Republicans. The indictment can also be read as one of those unfailingly sad tales of a father who cannot stop indulging a grown son. The senator himself is not alleged to have profited from the schemes, except by being relieved of the burden of underwriting Adam.

The bridge traffic caper is its own species of crazy; what distinguishes the charges against the two Skeloses is the apparent absence of a survival instinct. It is one thing not to know anything about water or that stuff. More remarkable, if true, is the fact that the sewer machinations continued even after the former New York Assembly speaker, Sheldon Silver, was charged in January with taking bribes disguised as fees.

It was by then common gossip in political and news media circles that Senator Skelos, a Republican, the counterpart in the Senate to Mr. Silver, a Democrat, in the Assembly, could be next in line for the criminal dock. “Stay tuned,” the United States attorney, Preet Bharara said, leaving not much to the imagination.

Even though the cat had been unmistakably belled, Skelos father and son continued to talk about how to advance the interests of the sewer company, though the son did begin to use a burner cellphone, the kind people pay for in cash, with no traceable contracts.

That was indeed prudent, as prosecutors had been wiretapping the cellphones of both men. But it would seem that the burner was of limited value, because by then the prosecutors had managed to secure the help of a business executive who agreed to record calls with the Skeloses. It would further seem that the business executive was more attentive to the perils of pending investigations than the politician.

Through the end of the New York State budget negotiations in March, the hopes of the younger Skelos rested on his father’s ability to devise legislation that would benefit the sewer company. That did not pan out. But Senator Skelos did boast that he had haggled with Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo, a Democrat, in a successful effort to raise a $150 million allocation for Long Island to $550 million, for what the budget called “transformative economic development projects.” It included money for the kind of work done by the sewer company.

The lawyer for Adam Skelos said he was not guilty and would win in court. Senator Skelos issued a ringing declaration that he was unequivocally innocent.

THIS was also the approach taken in New Jersey by Bill Baroni, a man of great presence and eloquence who stopped outside the federal courthouse to note that he had taken risks as a Republican by bucking his party to support paid family leave, medical marijuana and marriage equality. “I would never risk my career, my job, my reputation for something like this,” Mr. Baroni said. “I am an innocent man.”

The lawyer for his co-defendant, Bridget Anne Kelly, the former deputy chief of staff to Mr. Christie, a Republican, said that she would strongly rebut the charges.

Perhaps they had nothing to do with the lane closings. But neither Mr. Baroni nor Ms. Kelly addressed the question of why they did not return repeated calls from the mayor of Fort Lee, N.J., begging them to stop the traffic tie-ups, over three days.

That silence was a low moment. But perhaps New York hit bottom faster. Senator Skelos, the prosecutors charged, arranged to meet Long Island politicians at the wake of Wenjian Liu, a New York City police officer shot dead in December, to press for payments to the company employing his son.

Sometimes it seems as though for some people, the only thing to be ashamed of is shame itself.

Finding Scandal in New York and New Jersey, but No Shame

As he reflected on the festering wounds deepened by race and grievance that have been on painful display in America’s cities lately, President Obama on Monday found himself thinking about a young man he had just met named Malachi.

A few minutes before, in a closed-door round-table discussion at Lehman College in the Bronx, Mr. Obama had asked a group of black and Hispanic students from disadvantaged backgrounds what could be done to help them reach their goals. Several talked about counseling and guidance programs.

“Malachi, he just talked about — we should talk about love,” Mr. Obama told a crowd afterward, drifting away from his prepared remarks. “Because Malachi and I shared the fact that our dad wasn’t around and that sometimes we wondered why he wasn’t around and what had happened. But really, that’s what this comes down to is: Do we love these kids?”

Many presidents have governed during times of racial tension, but Mr. Obama is the first to see in the mirror a face that looks like those on the other side of history’s ledger. While his first term was consumed with the economy, war and health care, his second keeps coming back to the societal divide that was not bridged by his election. A president who eschewed focusing on race now seems to have found his voice again as he thinks about how to use his remaining time in office and beyond.

Obama Speaks of a ‘Sense of Unfairness’

Obama Speaks of a ‘Sense of Unfairness’

At an event announcing the creation of a nonprofit focusing on young minority men, President Obama talked about the underlying reasons for recent protests in Baltimore and other cities.

By Associated Press on Publish Date May 4, 2015. Photo by Stephen Crowley/The New York Times.

In the aftermath of racially charged unrest in places like Baltimore, Ferguson, Mo., and New York, Mr. Obama came to the Bronx on Monday for the announcement of a new nonprofit organization that is being spun off from his White House initiative called My Brother’s Keeper. Staked by more than $80 million in commitments from corporations and other donors, the new group, My Brother’s Keeper Alliance, will in effect provide the nucleus for Mr. Obama’s post-presidency, which will begin in January 2017.

“This will remain a mission for me and for Michelle not just for the rest of my presidency but for the rest of my life,” Mr. Obama said. “And the reason is simple,” he added. Referring to some of the youths he had just met, he said: “We see ourselves in these young men. I grew up without a dad. I grew up lost sometimes and adrift, not having a sense of a clear path. The only difference between me and a lot of other young men in this neighborhood and all across the country is that I grew up in an environment that was a little more forgiving.”

Organizers said the new alliance already had financial pledges from companies like American Express, Deloitte, Discovery Communications and News Corporation. The money will be used to help companies address obstacles facing young black and Hispanic men, provide grants to programs for disadvantaged youths, and help communities aid their populations.

Joe Echevarria, a former chief executive of Deloitte, the accounting and consulting firm, will lead the alliance, and among those on its leadership team or advisory group are executives at PepsiCo, News Corporation, Sprint, BET and Prudential Group Insurance; former Secretary of State Colin L. Powell; Senator Cory Booker, Democrat of New Jersey; former Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr.; the music star John Legend; the retired athletes Alonzo Mourning, Jerome Bettis and Shaquille O’Neal; and the mayors of Indianapolis, Sacramento and Philadelphia.

The alliance, while nominally independent of the White House, may face some of the same questions confronting former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton as she begins another presidential campaign. Some of those donating to the alliance may have interests in government action, and skeptics may wonder whether they are trying to curry favor with the president by contributing.

“The Obama administration will have no role in deciding how donations are screened and what criteria they’ll set at the alliance for donor policies, because it’s an entirely separate entity,” Josh Earnest, the White House press secretary, told reporters on Air Force One en route to New York. But he added, “I’m confident that the members of the board are well aware of the president’s commitment to transparency.”

The alliance was in the works before the disturbances last week after the death of Freddie Gray, the black man who suffered fatal injuries while in police custody in Baltimore, but it reflected the evolution of Mr. Obama’s presidency. For him, in a way, it is coming back to issues that animated him as a young community organizer and politician. It was his own struggle with race and identity, captured in his youthful memoir, “Dreams From My Father,” that stood him apart from other presidential aspirants.

But that was a side of him that he kept largely to himself through the first years of his presidency while he focused on other priorities like turning the economy around, expanding government-subsidized health care and avoiding electoral land mines en route to re-election.

After securing a second term, Mr. Obama appeared more emboldened. Just a month after his 2013 inauguration, he talked passionately about opportunity and race with a group of teenage boys in Chicago, a moment aides point to as perhaps the first time he had spoken about these issues in such a personal, powerful way as president. A few months later, he publicly lamented the death of Trayvon Martin, a black Florida teenager, saying that “could have been me 35 years ago.”

That case, along with public ruptures of anger over police shootings in Ferguson and elsewhere, have pushed the issue of race and law enforcement onto the public agenda. Aides said they imagined that with his presidency in its final stages, Mr. Obama might be thinking more about what comes next and causes he can advance as a private citizen.

That is not to say that his public discussion of these issues has been universally welcomed. Some conservatives said he had made matters worse by seeming in their view to blame police officers in some of the disputed cases.

“President Obama, when he was elected, could have been a unifying leader,” Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, a Republican candidate for president, said at a forum last week. “He has made decisions that I think have inflamed racial tensions.”

On the other side of the ideological spectrum, some liberal African-American activists have complained that Mr. Obama has not done enough to help downtrodden communities. While he is speaking out more, these critics argue, he has hardly used the power of the presidency to make the sort of radical change they say is necessary.

The line Mr. Obama has tried to straddle has been a serrated one. He condemns police brutality as he defends most officers as honorable. He condemns “criminals and thugs” who looted in Baltimore while expressing empathy with those trapped in a cycle of poverty and hopelessness.

In the Bronx on Monday, Mr. Obama bemoaned the death of Brian Moore, a plainclothes New York police officer who had died earlier in the day after being shot in the head Saturday on a Queens street. Most police officers are “good and honest and fair and care deeply about their communities,” even as they put their lives on the line, Mr. Obama said.

“Which is why in addressing the issues in Baltimore or Ferguson or New York, the point I made was that if we’re just looking at policing, we’re looking at it too narrowly,” he added. “If we ask the police to simply contain and control problems that we ourselves have been unwilling to invest and solve, that’s not fair to the communities, it’s not fair to the police.”

Moreover, if society writes off some people, he said, “that’s not the kind of country I want to live in; that’s not what America is about.”

His message to young men like Malachi Hernandez, who attends Boston Latin Academy in Massachusetts, is not to give up.

“I want you to know you matter,” he said. “You matter to us.”

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.

As he reflected on the festering wounds deepened by race and grievance that have been on painful display in America’s cities lately, President Obama on Monday found himself thinking about a young man he had just met named Malachi.

A few minutes before, in a closed-door round-table discussion at Lehman College in the Bronx, Mr. Obama had asked a group of black and Hispanic students from disadvantaged backgrounds what could be done to help them reach their goals. Several talked about counseling and guidance programs.

“Malachi, he just talked about — we should talk about love,” Mr. Obama told a crowd afterward, drifting away from his prepared remarks. “Because Malachi and I shared the fact that our dad wasn’t around and that sometimes we wondered why he wasn’t around and what had happened. But really, that’s what this comes down to is: Do we love these kids?”

Many presidents have governed during times of racial tension, but Mr. Obama is the first to see in the mirror a face that looks like those on the other side of history’s ledger. While his first term was consumed with the economy, war and health care, his second keeps coming back to the societal divide that was not bridged by his election. A president who eschewed focusing on race now seems to have found his voice again as he thinks about how to use his remaining time in office and beyond.

Obama Speaks of a ‘Sense of Unfairness’

Obama Speaks of a ‘Sense of Unfairness’

At an event announcing the creation of a nonprofit focusing on young minority men, President Obama talked about the underlying reasons for recent protests in Baltimore and other cities.

In the aftermath of racially charged unrest in places like Baltimore, Ferguson, Mo., and New York, Mr. Obama came to the Bronx on Monday for the announcement of a new nonprofit organization that is being spun off from his White House initiative called My Brother’s Keeper. Staked by more than $80 million in commitments from corporations and other donors, the new group, My Brother’s Keeper Alliance, will in effect provide the nucleus for Mr. Obama’s post-presidency, which will begin in January 2017.

“This will remain a mission for me and for Michelle not just for the rest of my presidency but for the rest of my life,” Mr. Obama said. “And the reason is simple,” he added. Referring to some of the youths he had just met, he said: “We see ourselves in these young men. I grew up without a dad. I grew up lost sometimes and adrift, not having a sense of a clear path. The only difference between me and a lot of other young men in this neighborhood and all across the country is that I grew up in an environment that was a little more forgiving.”

Organizers said the new alliance already had financial pledges from companies like American Express, Deloitte, Discovery Communications and News Corporation. The money will be used to help companies address obstacles facing young black and Hispanic men, provide grants to programs for disadvantaged youths, and help communities aid their populations.

Joe Echevarria, a former chief executive of Deloitte, the accounting and consulting firm, will lead the alliance, and among those on its leadership team or advisory group are executives at PepsiCo, News Corporation, Sprint, BET and Prudential Group Insurance; former Secretary of State Colin L. Powell; Senator Cory Booker, Democrat of New Jersey; former Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr.; the music star John Legend; the retired athletes Alonzo Mourning, Jerome Bettis and Shaquille O’Neal; and the mayors of Indianapolis, Sacramento and Philadelphia.

The alliance, while nominally independent of the White House, may face some of the same questions confronting former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton as she begins another presidential campaign. Some of those donating to the alliance may have interests in government action, and skeptics may wonder whether they are trying to curry favor with the president by contributing.

“The Obama administration will have no role in deciding how donations are screened and what criteria they’ll set at the alliance for donor policies, because it’s an entirely separate entity,” Josh Earnest, the White House press secretary, told reporters on Air Force One en route to New York. But he added, “I’m confident that the members of the board are well aware of the president’s commitment to transparency.”

The alliance was in the works before the disturbances last week after the death of Freddie Gray, the black man who suffered fatal injuries while in police custody in Baltimore, but it reflected the evolution of Mr. Obama’s presidency. For him, in a way, it is coming back to issues that animated him as a young community organizer and politician. It was his own struggle with race and identity, captured in his youthful memoir, “Dreams From My Father,” that stood him apart from other presidential aspirants.

But that was a side of him that he kept largely to himself through the first years of his presidency while he focused on other priorities like turning the economy around, expanding government-subsidized health care and avoiding electoral land mines en route to re-election.

After securing a second term, Mr. Obama appeared more emboldened. Just a month after his 2013 inauguration, he talked passionately about opportunity and race with a group of teenage boys in Chicago, a moment aides point to as perhaps the first time he had spoken about these issues in such a personal, powerful way as president. A few months later, he publicly lamented the death of Trayvon Martin, a black Florida teenager, saying that “could have been me 35 years ago.”

That case, along with public ruptures of anger over police shootings in Ferguson and elsewhere, have pushed the issue of race and law enforcement onto the public agenda. Aides said they imagined that with his presidency in its final stages, Mr. Obama might be thinking more about what comes next and causes he can advance as a private citizen.

That is not to say that his public discussion of these issues has been universally welcomed. Some conservatives said he had made matters worse by seeming in their view to blame police officers in some of the disputed cases.

“President Obama, when he was elected, could have been a unifying leader,” Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, a Republican candidate for president, said at a forum last week. “He has made decisions that I think have inflamed racial tensions.”

On the other side of the ideological spectrum, some liberal African-American activists have complained that Mr. Obama has not done enough to help downtrodden communities. While he is speaking out more, these critics argue, he has hardly used the power of the presidency to make the sort of radical change they say is necessary.

The line Mr. Obama has tried to straddle has been a serrated one. He condemns police brutality as he defends most officers as honorable. He condemns “criminals and thugs” who looted in Baltimore while expressing empathy with those trapped in a cycle of poverty and hopelessness.

In the Bronx on Monday, Mr. Obama bemoaned the death of Brian Moore, a plainclothes New York police officer who had died earlier in the day after being shot in the head Saturday on a Queens street. Most police officers are “good and honest and fair and care deeply about their communities,” even as they put their lives on the line, Mr. Obama said.

“Which is why in addressing the issues in Baltimore or Ferguson or New York, the point I made was that if we’re just looking at policing, we’re looking at it too narrowly,” he added. “If we ask the police to simply contain and control problems that we ourselves have been unwilling to invest and solve, that’s not fair to the communities, it’s not fair to the police.”

Moreover, if society writes off some people, he said, “that’s not the kind of country I want to live in; that’s not what America is about.”

His message to young men like Malachi Hernandez, who attends Boston Latin Academy in Massachusetts, is not to give up.

“I want you to know you matter,” he said. “You matter to us.”
