Dapatkah aku melukis cinta untukmu?
Mengguratkan sejuta warna
yang bisa membuatmu indah..
Dapatkah aku melukis cinta untukmu?
Seperti notasi mimpi kupu-kupu
bersayap biru,
Terbang bersama menuju negeri pelangi..
Dapatkah aku melukis cinta untukmu?
Mengisyaratkan lelahku di jalan resah!
Puisi Cinta Romantis
Tak terasa kita telah bersama
Kebahagiaan dan kesedihan selalu kita lalui berdua
Aku untukmu dan kau untukku
Hukum itu selalu kita pegang erat-erat
Setiap hembusan nafas selalu menyebutmu
Setiap aliran darah selalu berkata namamu
Siang malam aku selalu membayangkanmu
Sudah ditandai

Tak terasa kita telah bersatu
Semoga tuhan terus memberkati
Hubungan jujur tak kan pernah mati
Aku berjanji untuk setia
Aku yakin kaupun setia
Puisi Janji Romantis
Jangan kau ragukan cinta dan kesetiaanku
Langit dan bumi pun tahu
Cinta kasihku satu
Dan itu hanya untukmu
Ku ingin kau mengerti
Cinta ini suci tak terbagi
Sampai nafasku terhenti
Hanya kau yang ada dihati
Ku persembahkan untukmu janji setia
Mulai kini dan selamanya
 
Akuilah Cinta
Kita tahu
kita percaya
bahwa rasa itu tumbuh sekian lama
dan bernaung di dalam hati
menunggu detik agar mewujudkanya
menjadi kata, kalimat, lalu suara
Aku tak peduli
bila ruang harus menyekat cinta
dan aku mencoba menyeru kepada detik
agar temukan kita di ujung hari
Aku tidak peduli meski dibulan tak berbulan sekalipun
ruang masih saja menyekat cinta
dan aku masih saja mencoba menyeru kepada detik
agar temukan kita di serambi taman surga

Menunaikan ibadah haji adalah bentuk ritual tahunan yang dilaksanakan kaum muslim sedunia yang mampu (material, fisik, dan keilmuan) dengan berkunjung dan melaksanakan beberapa kegiatan di beberapa tempat di Arab Saudi pada suatu waktu yang dikenal sebagai musim haji (bulan Dzulhijjah). Hal ini berbeda dengan ibadah umrah yang bisa dilaksanakan sewaktu-waktu.

3. Dewasa

4. Berakal

5. Waras

6. Orang merdeka (bukan budak)

7. Mampu, baik dalam hal biaya, kesehatan, keamanan, dan nafkah bagi keluarga yang ditinggal berhaji

 

Rukun Haji

Rukun haji adalah perbuatan-perbuatan yang wajib dilakukan dalam berhaji. Rukun haji tsb adalah:

1. Ihram

2. Wukuf di Arafah

3. Tawaf ifâdah

4. Sa`i

5. Mencukur rambut di kepala atau memotongnya sebagian

6. Tertib

Rukun haji tsb harus dilakukan secara berurutan dan menyeluruh. Jika salah satu ditinggalkan, maka hajinya tidak sah.

1. Memulai ihram dari mîqât (batas waktu dan tempat yang ditentukan untuk melakukan ibadah haji dan umrah)

2. Melontar jumrah

3. Mabît (menginap) di Mudzdalifah, Mekah

4. Mabît di Mina

5. Tawaf wada` (tawaf perpisahan)

Jika salah satu dari wajib haji ini ditinggalkan, maka hajinya tetap sah, namun harus membayar dam (denda).

 

Pelaksanaan Ibadah Haji (Manasik Haji)

Tata cara manasik haji adalah sebagai berikut:

1. Melakukan ihram dari mîqât yang telah ditentukan

Ihram dapat dimulai sejak awal bulan Syawal dengan melakukan mandi sunah, berwudhu, memakai pakaian ihram, dan berniat haji dengan mengucapkan Labbaik Allâhumma hajjan, yang artinya `aku datang memenuhi panggilanmu ya Allah, untuk berhaji`.

Kemudian berangkat menuju arafah dengan membaca talbiah untuk menyatakan niat:

Labbaik Allâhumma labbaik, labbaik lâ syarîka laka labbaik, inna al-hamda, wa ni`mata laka wa al-mulk, lâ syarîka laka

Artinya:

Aku datang ya Allah, aku datang memenuhi panggilan-Mu; Aku datang, tiada sekutu bagi-Mu, aku datang; Sesungguhnya segala pujian, segala kenikmatan, dan seluruh kerajaan, adalah milik Engkau; tiada sekutu bagi-Mu.

2. Wukuf di Arafah

Dilaksanakan pada tanggal 9 Zulhijah, waktunya dimulai setelah matahari tergelincir sampai terbit fajar pada hari nahar (hari menyembelih kurban) tanggal 10 Zulhijah.

Saat wukuf, ada beberapa hal yang harus dilakukan, yaitu: shalat jamak taqdim dan qashar zuhur-ashar, berdoa, berzikir bersama, membaca Al-Qur`an, shalat jamak taqdim dan qashar maghrib-isya.

3. Mabît di Muzdalifah, Mekah

Waktunya sesaat setelah tengah malam sampai sebelum terbit fajar. Disini mengambil batu kerikil sejumlah 49 butir atau 70 butir untuk melempar jumrah di Mina, dan melakukan shalat subuh di awal waktu, dilanjutkan dengan berangkat menuju Mina. Kemudian berhenti sebentar di masy`ar al-harâm (monumen suci) atau Muzdalifah untuk berzikir kepada Allah SWT (QS 2: 198), dan mengerjakan shalat subuh ketika fajar telah menyingsing.

4. Melontar jumrah `aqabah

Dilakukan di bukit `Aqabah, pada tanggal 10 Zulhijah, dengan 7 butir kerikil, kemudian menyembelih hewan kurban.

5. Tahalul

Tahalul adalah berlepas diri dari ihram haji setelah selesai mengerjakan amalan-amalan haji.

Tahalul awal, dilaksanakan setelah selesai melontar jumrah `aqobah, dengan cara mencukur/memotong rambut sekurang-kurangnya 3 helai.

Setelah tahalul, boleh memakai pakaian biasa dan melakukan semua perbuatan yang dilarang selama ihram, kecuali berhubungan seks.

Bagi yang ingin melaksanakan tawaf ifâdah pada hari itu dapat langsung pergi ke Mekah untuk tawaf. Dengan membaca talbiah masuk ke Masjidil Haram melalui Bâbussalâm (pintu salam) dan melakukan tawaf. Selesai tawaf disunahkan mencium Hajar Aswad (batu hitam), lalu shalat sunah 2 rakaat di dekat makam Ibrahim, berdoa di Multazam, dan shalat sunah 2 rakaat di Hijr Ismail (semuanya ada di kompleks Masjidil Haram).

Kemudian melakukan sa`i antara bukit Shafa dan Marwa, dimulai dari Bukit Shafa dan berakhir di Bukit Marwa. Lalu dilanjutkan dengan tahalul kedua, yaitu mencukur/memotong rambut sekurang-kurangnya 3 helai.

Dengan demikian, seluruh perbuatan yang dilarang selama ihram telah dihapuskan, sehingga semuanya kembali halal untuk dilakukan.

Selanjutnya kembali ke Mina sebelum matahari terbenam untuk mabît di sana.

6. Mabît di Mina

Dilaksanakan pada hari tasyrik (hari yang diharamkan untuk berpuasa), yaitu pada tanggal 11, 12, dan 13 Zulhijah. Setiap siang pada hari-hari tasyrik itu melontar jumrah ûlâ, wustâ, dan `aqabah, masing-masing 7 kali.

Bagi yang menghendaki nafar awwal (meninggalkan Mina tanggal 12 Zulhijah setelah jumrah sore hari), melontar jumrah dilakukan pada tanggal 11 dan 12 Zulhijah saja. Tetapi bagi yang menghendaki nafar sânî atau nafar akhir (meninggalkan Mina pada tanggal 13 Zulhijah setelah jumrah sore hari), melontar jumrah dilakukan selama tiga hari (11, 12, dan 13 Zulhijah).

Dengan selesainya melontar jumrah maka selesailah seluruh rangkaian kegiatan ibadah haji dan kembali ke Mekah.

7. Tawaf ifâdah

Bagi yang belum melaksanakan tawaf ifâdah ketika berada di Mekah, maka harus melakukan tawaf ifâdah dan sa`i. Lalu melakukan tawaf wada` sebelum meninggalkan Mekah untuk kembali pulang ke daerah asal.

Larangan dalam Haji

Hal-hal yang tidak boleh dilakukan oleh orang yang sudah memakai pakaian ihram dan sudah berniat melakukan ibadah haji/umrah adalah:

1. Melakukan hubungan seksual atau apa pun yang dapat mengarah pada perbuatan hubungan seksual

2. Melakukan perbuatan tercela dan maksiat

3. Bertengkar dengan orang lain

4. Memakai pakaian yang berjahit (bagi laki-laki)

5. Memakai wangi-wangian

6. Memakai khuff (kaus kaki atau sepatu yang menutup mata kaki)

7. Melakukan akad nikah

8. Memotong kuku

9. Mencukur atau mencabut rambut

10. Memakai pakaian yang dicelup yang mempunyai bau harum

11. Membunuh binatang buruan

12. Memakan daging binatang buruan

6. Mencapai rukun yamanî (pada putaran ke-7) dan mencium atau menyentuh Hajar Aswad

Haji itu `arafah, siapa yang datang pada malam mabît di Muzdalifah sebelum fajar menyingsing, ia sudah mendapatkan haji.

Ketika melakukan wukuf, disunahkan untuk tidak berpuasa, menghadap kiblat, berzikir, membaca istighfar, dan berdoa. Menurut riwayat Imam Ahmad, doa Nabi SAW ketika di hari arafah adalah:

Tiada Tuhan kecuali Allah, yang Esa, tiada sekutu bagi-Nya, bagi-Nya seluruh kerajaan, bagi-Nya pula segala pujian, di tangan-Nya segala kebaikan, dan Ia Maha Kuasa atas segalanya.

6. Melontar Jumrah

Melontar jumrah ialah melempar batu kerikil ke arah 3 buah tonggak, yaitu ûlâ, wustâ, dan ukhrâ, masing-masing 7 kali lemparan.

Waktu melontar jumrah disunahkan sesudah matahari terbit. Bagi orang yang lemah atau berhalangan boleh melakukannya pada malam hari.

Ketika melontar jumrah disunahkan:

1. Berdiri dengan posisi Mekah ada di sebelah kiri dan Mina di sebelah kanan

2. Mengangkat tangan tinggi-tinggi bagi laki-laki

3. Membaca takbir ketika melempar batu yang pertama

Bagi orang yang berhalangan menyelesaikan haji dengan tidak melakukan wukuf di Arafah, tawaf, ataupun sa`i, apa pun penyebabnya, menurut pendapat jumhur ulama orang tsb wajib menyembelih seekor kambing, sapi, atau unta di tempat ia bertahalul.

Apabila ibadahnya itu ibadah wajib, ia harus meng-qadha pada tahun berikutnya, tetapi bila bukan ibadah wajib, ia tidak perlu meng-qadha.

Haji Akbar dan Haji Mabrur

Haji akbar (haji besar)

Istilah haji akbar disebut dalam firman Allah SWT pada surah At-Taubah: 3 yang artinya:

Dan (inilah) suatu pemakluman dari Allah dan Rasul-Nya kepada manusia pada hari haji akbar, bahwa sesungguhnya Allah dan Rasul-Nya berlepas diri dari orang-orang musyrikin...

Ada beberapa pendapat ulama tentang haji akbar, yaitu haji akbar adalah:

• haji pada hari wukuf di Arafah

• haji pada hari nahar

• haji yang wukufnya bertepatan dengan hari jum`at

• ibadah haji itu sendiri beserta wukufnya di Arafah

Namun pendapat yang paling masyhur adalah pendapat yang menyatakan bahwa haji akbar adalah haji yang wukufnya jatuh pada hari jum`at.

Ada haji besar, ada pula haji asgar (haji kecil) yang merupakan istilah lain untuk umrah.

Haji mabrur

Haji mabrur adalah ibadah haji seseorang yang seluruh rangkaian ibadah hajinya dapat dilaksanakan dengan benar, ikhlas, tidak dicampuri dosa, menggunakan biaya yang halal, dan yang terpenting, setelah ibadah haji menjadi orang yang lebih baik.

Balasan bagi orang yang mendapat haji mabrur adalah surga. Hal ini didasarkan pada sabda Rasulullah SAW yang diriwayatkan oleh Abu Hurairah yang artinya:

Umrah ke satu ke umrah berikutnya adalah penebus dosa di antara keduanya, dan haji mabrur ganjarannya tiada lain kecuali surga (HR Bukhari dan Muslim)

Dam (Denda)

Dam dalam bentuk darah adalah menyembelih binatang sebagai karafat (tebusan) terhadap beberapa pelanggaran yang dilakukan ketika melakukan ibadah haji atau umrah. Jenis dam adalah:

1. Dam tartîb

2. Dam takhyîr dan taqdîr

3. Dam tartîb dan ta`dîl

4. Dam takhyîr dan ta`dîl

Dam takhyîr dan taqdîr ialah boleh memilih menyembelih seekor kambing, berpuasa, atau bersedekah memberi makan kepada 6 orang miskin sebanyak 3 sa` (1 sa` = 3,1 liter).

2. Memotong 3 kuku atau lebih

3. Berpakaian yang berjahit

4. Menutup kepala

5. Memakai wewangian

Dam tartîb dan ta`dîl adalah pertama kali wajib menyembelih unta, apabila tidak mampu boleh menyembelih sapi, apabila tidak mampu juga baru menyembelih kambing 7 ekor.

Apabila tidak mendapat 7 ekor kambing, si pelanggar harus membeli makanan seharga itu dan disedekahkan kepada fakir miskin di tanah suci.

Dam jenis ini dikenakan karena pelanggaran melakukan hubungan seksual.

4. Dam takhyîr dan ta`dîl

Dam takhyîr dan ta`dîl adalah boleh memilih diantara 3 hal yaitu:

• Menyembelih binatang buruan yang diburu

• Membeli makanan seharga binatang buruan tsb dan disedekahkan

• Berpuasa satu hari untuk setiap 1 mud (5/6 liter)

Dam jenis ini dikenakan karena sebab-sebab:

1. Merusak, memburu, atau membunuh binatang buruan

2. Memotong pohon-pohon atau mencabut rerumputan di tanah haram.

Waktu dan tempat penyembelihan dam

Waktu penyembelihan dam yang disebabkan pelanggaran yang tidak sampai membatalkan atau kehilangan haji harus dilakukan pada waktu si pelanggar melakukan ibadah haji. Tetapi bagi dam yang disebabkan pelanggaran yang berakibat kehilangan haji, pelaksanaannya wajib ditunda sampai pada waktu melakukan ihram ketika meng-qadha haji.

Sedangkan tempat penyembelihan dam dan penyaluran dagingnya adalah di tanah haram.

Bagi orang yang melakukan haji, diutamakan menyembelihnya di Mina, sedangkan bagi orang yang melakukan umrah, menyembelihnya di Marwa.

Mewakilkan Haji

Perwakilan haji berlaku untuk seseorang yang mampu melakukan haji dari segi biaya, tapi kesehatannya tidak memungkinkan, seperti sakit yang parah atau karena usia tua.

Dalam hal ini wajib orang lain untuk menghajikannya dengan biaya dari orang yang bersangkutan, dengan syarat orang yang menggantikan tsb sudah mengerjakan haji untuk dirinya sendiri.

Tetapi bila setelah dihajikan orang itu sembuh, menurut Imam Syafi`i, ia tetap wajib melakukan haji.

Perwakilan haji juga dapat dilakukan atas orang yang sudah meninggal, asalkan orang tsb berkewajiban haji, antara lain mempunyai nazar dan belum dapat melaksanakannya. Hal ini didasarkan pada hadist yang meriwayatkan bahwa seorang lelaki mendatangi Nabi SAW:

`Ayah saya sudah meninggal dan ia mempunya kewajiban haji, apakah aku harus menghajikannya?` Nabi SAW menjawab, `Bagaimana pendapatmu apabila ayahmu meninggalkan hutang, apakah engkau wajib membayarnya?` Orang itu menjawab, `Ya`. Nabi SAW berkata, `Berhajilah engkau untuk ayahmu`.(HR. Ibnu Abbas RA)

MENGETAHUI CARA KEBERANGKATAN HAJI

saco-indonesia.com, Sulley Muntari telah menyebut pelatih Diego Simeone sebagai sosok yang sangat cerdas dan akan bisa membawa timnya menuju arah yang lebih baik di musim ini. Hal tersebut telah diungkapkan oleh pemain AC Milan itu dalam menanggapi hasil drawing babak 16 besar Liga champions yang telah mempertemukan Il Rossoneri dengan Atletico Madrid.

"Atletico Madrid adalah tim yang amat sulit untuk dapat dihadapi. Di beberapa tahun terakhir, mereka telah melakukan tugasnya dengan baik. Pelatih mereka telah memiliki banyak ide hebat dan tim benar-benar telah merefleksikan apa yang dipikirkan oleh Simeone. Ia adalah pelatih yang cerdas dan mampu untuk mempengaruhi mental para pemainnya," tutur Muntari menurut laporan situs resmi Milan.

"Mereka sejauh ini tampil cukup baik di Spanyol dan Eropa. Ini akan sulit namun pada bulan Februari mendatang kami juga akan melakukan persiapan sebaik mungkin untuk kedua laga tersebut," tutupnya.

Muntari dalam satu wawancara sebelum drawing pernah menyebut Atleti sebagai tim terlemah yang bisa mereka hadapi, oleh karena itu ia juga berharap Milan bertemu dengan tim yang diperkuat oleh David Villa dan Diego Costa tersebut.

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.

UNITED NATIONS — Wearing pinstripes and a pince-nez, Staffan de Mistura, the United Nations envoy for Syria, arrived at the Security Council one Tuesday afternoon in February and announced that President Bashar al-Assad had agreed to halt airstrikes over Aleppo. Would the rebels, Mr. de Mistura suggested, agree to halt their shelling?

What he did not announce, but everyone knew by then, was that the Assad government had begun a military offensive to encircle opposition-held enclaves in Aleppo and that fierce fighting was underway. It would take only a few days for rebel leaders, having pushed back Syrian government forces, to outright reject Mr. de Mistura’s proposed freeze in the fighting, dooming the latest diplomatic overture on Syria.

Diplomacy is often about appearing to be doing something until the time is ripe for a deal to be done.

 

 

Now, with Mr. Assad’s forces having suffered a string of losses on the battlefield and the United States reaching at least a partial rapprochement with Mr. Assad’s main backer, Iran, Mr. de Mistura is changing course. Starting Monday, he is set to hold a series of closed talks in Geneva with the warring sides and their main supporters. Iran will be among them.

In an interview at United Nations headquarters last week, Mr. de Mistura hinted that the changing circumstances, both military and diplomatic, may have prompted various backers of the war to question how much longer the bloodshed could go on.

“Will that have an impact in accelerating the willingness for a political solution? We need to test it,” he said. “The Geneva consultations may be a good umbrella for testing that. It’s an occasion for asking everyone, including the government, if there is any new way that they are looking at a political solution, as they too claim they want.”

He said he would have a better assessment at the end of June, when he expects to wrap up his consultations. That coincides with the deadline for a final agreement in the Iran nuclear talks.

Whether a nuclear deal with Iran will pave the way for a new opening on peace talks in Syria remains to be seen. Increasingly, though, world leaders are explicitly linking the two, with the European Union’s top diplomat, Federica Mogherini, suggesting last week that a nuclear agreement could spur Tehran to play “a major but positive role in Syria.”

It could hardly come soon enough. Now in its fifth year, the Syrian war has claimed 220,000 lives, prompted an exodus of more than three million refugees and unleashed jihadist groups across the region. “This conflict is producing a question mark in many — where is it leading and whether this can be sustained,” Mr. de Mistura said.

Part Italian, part Swedish, Mr. de Mistura has worked with the United Nations for more than 40 years, but he is more widely known for his dapper style than for any diplomatic coups. Syria is by far the toughest assignment of his career — indeed, two of the organization’s most seasoned diplomats, Lakhdar Brahimi and Kofi Annan, tried to do the job and gave up — and critics have wondered aloud whether Mr. de Mistura is up to the task.

He served as a United Nations envoy in Afghanistan and Iraq, and before that in Lebanon, where a former minister recalled, with some scorn, that he spent many hours sunbathing at a private club in the hills above Beirut. Those who know him say he has a taste for fine suits and can sometimes speak too soon and too much, just as they point to his diplomatic missteps and hyperbole.

They cite, for instance, a news conference in October, when he raised the specter of Srebrenica, where thousands of Muslims were massacred in 1995 during the Balkans war, in warning that the Syrian border town of Kobani could fall to the Islamic State. In February, he was photographed at a party in Damascus, the Syrian capital, celebrating the anniversary of the Iranian revolution just as Syrian forces, aided by Iran, were pummeling rebel-held suburbs of Damascus; critics seized on that as evidence of his coziness with the government.

Mouin Rabbani, who served briefly as the head of Mr. de Mistura’s political affairs unit and has since emerged as one of his most outspoken critics, said Mr. de Mistura did not have the background necessary for the job. “This isn’t someone well known for his political vision or political imagination, and his closest confidants lack the requisite knowledge and experience,” Mr. Rabbani said.

As a deputy foreign minister in the Italian government, Mr. de Mistura was tasked in 2012 with freeing two Italian marines detained in India for shooting at Indian fishermen. He made 19 trips to India, to little effect. One marine was allowed to return to Italy for medical reasons; the other remains in India.

He said he initially turned down the Syria job when the United Nations secretary general approached him last August, only to change his mind the next day, after a sleepless, guilt-ridden night.

Mr. de Mistura compared his role in Syria to that of a doctor faced with a terminally ill patient. His goal in brokering a freeze in the fighting, he said, was to alleviate suffering. He settled on Aleppo as the location for its “fame,” he said, a decision that some questioned, considering that Aleppo was far trickier than the many other lesser-known towns where activists had negotiated temporary local cease-fires.

“Everybody, at least in Europe, are very familiar with the value of Aleppo,” Mr. de Mistura said. “So I was using that as an icebreaker.”

The cease-fire negotiations, to which he had devoted six months, fell apart quickly because of the government’s military offensive in Aleppo the very day of his announcement at the Security Council. Privately, United Nations diplomats said Mr. de Mistura had been manipulated. To this, Mr. de Mistura said only that he was “disappointed and concerned.”

Tarek Fares, a former rebel fighter, said after a recent visit to Aleppo that no Syrian would admit publicly to supporting Mr. de Mistura’s cease-fire proposal. “If anyone said they went to a de Mistura meeting in Gaziantep, they would be arrested,” is how he put it, referring to the Turkish city where negotiations between the two sides were held.

Secretary General Ban Ki-moon remains staunchly behind Mr. de Mistura’s efforts. His defenders point out that he is at the center of one of the world’s toughest diplomatic problems, charged with mediating a conflict in which two of the world’s most powerful nations — Russia, which supports Mr. Assad, and the United States, which has called for his ouster — remain deadlocked.

R. Nicholas Burns, a former State Department official who now teaches at Harvard, credited Mr. de Mistura for trying to negotiate a cease-fire even when the chances of success were exceedingly small — and the chances of a political deal even smaller. For his efforts to work, Professor Burns argued, the world powers will first have to come to an agreement of their own.

“He needs the help of outside powers,” he said. “It starts with backers of Assad. That’s Russia and Iran. De Mistura is there, waiting.”

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

Even as a high school student, Dave Goldberg was urging female classmates to speak up. As a young dot-com executive, he had one girlfriend after another, but fell hard for a driven friend named Sheryl Sandberg, pining after her for years. After they wed, Mr. Goldberg pushed her to negotiate hard for high compensation and arranged his schedule so that he could be home with their children when she was traveling for work.

Mr. Goldberg, who died unexpectedly on Friday, was a genial, 47-year-old Silicon Valley entrepreneur who built his latest company, SurveyMonkey, from a modest enterprise to one recently valued by investors at $2 billion. But he was also perhaps the signature male feminist of his era: the first major chief executive in memory to spur his wife to become as successful in business as he was, and an essential figure in “Lean In,” Ms. Sandberg’s blockbuster guide to female achievement.

Over the weekend, even strangers were shocked at his death, both because of his relatively young age and because they knew of him as the living, breathing, car-pooling center of a new philosophy of two-career marriage.

“They were very much the role models for what this next generation wants to grapple with,” said Debora L. Spar, the president of Barnard College. In a 2011 commencement speech there, Ms. Sandberg told the graduates that whom they married would be their most important career decision.

In the play “The Heidi Chronicles,” revived on Broadway this spring, a male character who is the founder of a media company says that “I don’t want to come home to an A-plus,” explaining that his ambitions require him to marry an unthreatening helpmeet. Mr. Goldberg grew up to hold the opposite view, starting with his upbringing in progressive Minneapolis circles where “there was woman power in every aspect of our lives,” Jeffrey Dachis, a childhood friend, said in an interview.

The Goldberg parents read “The Feminine Mystique” together — in fact, Mr. Goldberg’s father introduced it to his wife, according to Ms. Sandberg’s book. In 1976, Paula Goldberg helped found a nonprofit to aid children with disabilities. Her husband, Mel, a law professor who taught at night, made the family breakfast at home.

Later, when Dave Goldberg was in high school and his prom date, Jill Chessen, stayed silent in a politics class, he chastised her afterward. He said, “You need to speak up,” Ms. Chessen recalled in an interview. “They need to hear your voice.”

Years later, when Karin Gilford, an early employee at Launch Media, Mr. Goldberg’s digital music company, became a mother, he knew exactly what to do. He kept giving her challenging assignments, she recalled, but also let her work from home one day a week. After Yahoo acquired Launch, Mr. Goldberg became known for distributing roses to all the women in the office on Valentine’s Day.

Ms. Sandberg, who often describes herself as bossy-in-a-good-way, enchanted him when they became friendly in the mid-1990s. He “was smitten with her,” Ms. Chessen remembered. Ms. Sandberg was dating someone else, but Mr. Goldberg still hung around, even helping her and her then-boyfriend move, recalled Bob Roback, a friend and co-founder of Launch. When they finally married in 2004, friends remember thinking how similar the two were, and that the qualities that might have made Ms. Sandberg intimidating to some men drew Mr. Goldberg to her even more.

Over the next decade, Mr. Goldberg and Ms. Sandberg pioneered new ways of capturing information online, had a son and then a daughter, became immensely wealthy, and hashed out their who-does-what-in-this-marriage issues. Mr. Goldberg’s commute from the Bay Area to Los Angeles became a strain, so he relocated, later joking that he “lost the coin flip” of where they would live. He paid the bills, she planned the birthday parties, and both often left their offices at 5:30 so they could eat dinner with their children before resuming work afterward.

Friends in Silicon Valley say they were careful to conduct their careers separately, politely refusing when outsiders would ask one about the other’s work: Ms. Sandberg’s role building Facebook into an information and advertising powerhouse, and Mr. Goldberg at SurveyMonkey, which made polling faster and cheaper. But privately, their work was intertwined. He often began statements to his team with the phrase “Well, Sheryl said” sharing her business advice. He counseled her, too, starting with her salary negotiations with Mark Zuckerberg.

“I wanted Mark to really feel he stretched to get Sheryl, because she was worth it,” Mr. Goldberg explained in a 2013 “60 Minutes” interview, his Minnesota accent and his smile intact as he offered a rare peek of the intersection of marriage and money at the top of corporate life.

 

 

While his wife grew increasingly outspoken about women’s advancement, Mr. Goldberg quietly advised the men in the office on family and partnership matters, an associate said. Six out of 16 members of SurveyMonkey’s management team are female, an almost unheard-of ratio among Silicon Valley “unicorns,” or companies valued at over $1 billion.

When Mellody Hobson, a friend and finance executive, wrote a chapter of “Lean In” about women of color for the college edition of the book, Mr. Goldberg gave her feedback on the draft, a clue to his deep involvement. He joked with Ms. Hobson that she was too long-winded, like Ms. Sandberg, but aside from that, he said he loved the chapter, she said in an interview.

By then, Mr. Goldberg was a figure of fascination who inspired a “where can I get one of those?” reaction among many of the women who had read the best seller “Lean In.” Some lamented that Ms. Sandberg’s advice hinged too much on marrying a Dave Goldberg, who was humble enough to plan around his wife, attentive enough to worry about which shoes his young daughter would wear, and rich enough to help pay for the help that made the family’s balancing act manageable.

Now that he is gone, and Ms. Sandberg goes from being half of a celebrated partnership to perhaps the business world’s most prominent single mother, the pages of “Lean In” carry a new sting of loss.

“We are never at 50-50 at any given moment — perfect equality is hard to define or sustain — but we allow the pendulum to swing back and forth between us,” she wrote in 2013, adding that they were looking forward to raising teenagers together.

“Fortunately, I have Dave to figure it out with me,” she wrote.

Hockey is not exactly known as a city game, but played on roller skates, it once held sway as the sport of choice in many New York neighborhoods.

“City kids had no rinks, no ice, but they would do anything to play hockey,” said Edward Moffett, former director of the Long Island City Y.M.C.A. Roller Hockey League, in Queens, whose games were played in city playgrounds going back to the 1940s.

From the 1960s through the 1980s, the league had more than 60 teams, he said. Players included the Mullen brothers of Hell’s Kitchen and Dan Dorion of Astoria, Queens, who would later play on ice for the National Hockey League.

One street legend from the heyday of New York roller hockey was Craig Allen, who lived in the Woodside Houses projects and became one of the city’s hardest hitters and top scorers.

“Craig was a warrior, one of the best roller hockey players in the city in the ’70s,” said Dave Garmendia, 60, a retired New York police officer who grew up playing with Mr. Allen. “His teammates loved him and his opponents feared him.”

Young Craig took up hockey on the streets of Queens in the 1960s, playing pickup games between sewer covers, wearing steel-wheeled skates clamped onto school shoes and using a roll of electrical tape as the puck.

His skill and ferocity drew attention, Mr. Garmendia said, but so did his skin color. He was black, in a sport made up almost entirely by white players.

“Roller hockey was a white kid’s game, plain and simple, but Craig broke the color barrier,” Mr. Garmendia said. “We used to say Craig did more for race relations than the N.A.A.C.P.”

Mr. Allen went on to coach and referee roller hockey in New York before moving several years ago to South Carolina. But he continued to organize an annual alumni game at Dutch Kills Playground in Long Island City, the same site that held the local championship games.

The reunion this year was on Saturday, but Mr. Allen never made it. On April 26, just before boarding the bus to New York, he died of an asthma attack at age 61.

Word of his death spread rapidly among hundreds of his old hockey colleagues who resolved to continue with the event, now renamed the Craig Allen Memorial Roller Hockey Reunion.

The turnout on Saturday was the largest ever, with players pulling on their old equipment, choosing sides and taking once again to the rink of cracked blacktop with faded lines and circles. They wore no helmets, although one player wore a fedora.

Another, Vinnie Juliano, 77, of Long Island City, wore his hearing aids, along with his 50-year-old taped-up quads, or four-wheeled skates with a leather boot. Many players here never converted to in-line skates, and neither did Mr. Allen, whose photograph appeared on a poster hanging behind the players’ bench.

“I’m seeing people walking by wondering why all these rusty, grizzly old guys are here playing hockey,” one player, Tommy Dominguez, said. “We’re here for Craig, and let me tell you, these old guys still play hard.”

Everyone seemed to have a Craig Allen story, from his earliest teams at Public School 151 to the Bryant Rangers, the Woodside Wings, the Woodside Blues and more.

Mr. Allen, who became a yellow-cab driver, was always recruiting new talent. He gained the nickname Cabby for his habit of stopping at playgrounds all over the city to scout players.

Teams were organized around neighborhoods and churches, and often sponsored by local bars. Mr. Allen, for one, played for bars, including Garry Owen’s and on the Fiddler’s Green Jokers team in Inwood, Manhattan.

Play was tough and fights were frequent.

“We were basically street gangs on skates,” said Steve Rogg, 56, a mail clerk who grew up in Jackson Heights, Queens, and who on Saturday wore his Riedell Classic quads from 1972. “If another team caught up with you the night before a game, they tossed you a beating so you couldn’t play the next day.”

Mr. Garmendia said Mr. Allen’s skin color provoked many fights.

“When we’d go to some ignorant neighborhoods, a lot of players would use slurs,” Mr. Garmendia said, recalling a game in Ozone Park, Queens, where local fans parked motorcycles in a lineup next to the blacktop and taunted Mr. Allen. Mr. Garmendia said he checked a player into the motorcycles, “and the bikes went down like dominoes, which started a serious brawl.”

A group of fans at a game in Brooklyn once stuck a pole through the rink fence as Mr. Allen skated by and broke his jaw, Mr. Garmendia said, adding that carloads of reinforcements soon arrived to defend Mr. Allen.

And at another racially incited brawl, the police responded with six patrol cars and a helicopter.

Before play began on Saturday, the players gathered at center rink to honor Mr. Allen. Billy Barnwell, 59, of Woodside, recalled once how an all-white, all-star squad snubbed Mr. Allen by playing him third string. He scored seven goals in the first game and made first string immediately.

“He’d always hear racial stuff before the game, and I’d ask him, ‘How do you put up with that?’” Mr. Barnwell recalled. “Craig would say, ‘We’ll take care of it,’ and by the end of the game, he’d win guys over. They’d say, ‘This guy’s good.’”

WASHINGTON — During a training course on defending against knife attacks, a young Salt Lake City police officer asked a question: “How close can somebody get to me before I’m justified in using deadly force?”

Dennis Tueller, the instructor in that class more than three decades ago, decided to find out. In the fall of 1982, he performed a rudimentary series of tests and concluded that an armed attacker who bolted toward an officer could clear 21 feet in the time it took most officers to draw, aim and fire their weapon.

The next spring, Mr. Tueller published his findings in SWAT magazine and transformed police training in the United States. The “21-foot rule” became dogma. It has been taught in police academies around the country, accepted by courts and cited by officers to justify countless shootings, including recent episodes involving a homeless woodcarver in Seattle and a schizophrenic woman in San Francisco.

Now, amid the largest national debate over policing since the 1991 beating of Rodney King in Los Angeles, a small but vocal set of law enforcement officials are calling for a rethinking of the 21-foot rule and other axioms that have emphasized how to use force, not how to avoid it. Several big-city police departments are already re-examining when officers should chase people or draw their guns and when they should back away, wait or try to defuse the situation

Police Rethink Long Tradition on Using Force

Though Robin and Joan Rolfs owned two rare talking dolls manufactured by Thomas Edison’s phonograph company in 1890, they did not dare play the wax cylinder records tucked inside each one.

The Rolfses, longtime collectors of Edison phonographs, knew that if they turned the cranks on the dolls’ backs, the steel phonograph needle might damage or destroy the grooves of the hollow, ring-shaped cylinder. And so for years, the dolls sat side by side inside a display cabinet, bearers of a message from the dawn of sound recording that nobody could hear.

In 1890, Edison’s dolls were a flop; production lasted only six weeks. Children found them difficult to operate and more scary than cuddly. The recordings inside, which featured snippets of nursery rhymes, wore out quickly.

Yet sound historians say the cylinders were the first entertainment records ever made, and the young girls hired to recite the rhymes were the world’s first recording artists.

Year after year, the Rolfses asked experts if there might be a safe way to play the recordings. Then a government laboratory developed a method to play fragile records without touching them.

Audio

The technique relies on a microscope to create images of the grooves in exquisite detail. A computer approximates — with great accuracy — the sounds that would have been created by a needle moving through those grooves.

In 2014, the technology was made available for the first time outside the laboratory.

“The fear all along is that we don’t want to damage these records. We don’t want to put a stylus on them,” said Jerry Fabris, the curator of the Thomas Edison Historical Park in West Orange, N.J. “Now we have the technology to play them safely.”

Last month, the Historical Park posted online three never-before-heard Edison doll recordings, including the two from the Rolfses’ collection. “There are probably more out there, and we’re hoping people will now get them digitized,” Mr. Fabris said.

The technology, which is known as Irene (Image, Reconstruct, Erase Noise, Etc.), was developed by the particle physicist Carl Haber and the engineer Earl Cornell at Lawrence Berkeley. Irene extracts sound from cylinder and disk records. It can also reconstruct audio from recordings so badly damaged they were deemed unplayable.

“We are now hearing sounds from history that I did not expect to hear in my lifetime,” Mr. Fabris said.

The Rolfses said they were not sure what to expect in August when they carefully packed their two Edison doll cylinders, still attached to their motors, and drove from their home in Hortonville, Wis., to the National Document Conservation Center in Andover, Mass. The center had recently acquired Irene technology.

Audio

Cylinders carry sound in a spiral groove cut by a phonograph recording needle that vibrates up and down, creating a surface made of tiny hills and valleys. In the Irene set-up, a microscope perched above the shaft takes thousands of high-resolution images of small sections of the grooves.

Stitched together, the images provide a topographic map of the cylinder’s surface, charting changes in depth as small as one five-hundredth the thickness of a human hair. Pitch, volume and timbre are all encoded in the hills and valleys and the speed at which the record is played.

At the conservation center, the preservation specialist Mason Vander Lugt attached one of the cylinders to the end of a rotating shaft. Huddled around a computer screen, the Rolfses first saw the wiggly waveform generated by Irene. Then came the digital audio. The words were at first indistinct, but as Mr. Lugt filtered out more of the noise, the rhyme became clearer.

“That was the Eureka moment,” Mr. Rolfs said.

In 1890, a girl in Edison’s laboratory had recited:

There was a little girl,

And she had a little curl

Audio

Right in the middle of her forehead.

When she was good,

She was very, very good.

But when she was bad, she was horrid.

Recently, the conservation center turned up another surprise.

In 2010, the Woody Guthrie Foundation received 18 oversize phonograph disks from an anonymous donor. No one knew if any of the dirt-stained recordings featured Guthrie, but Tiffany Colannino, then the foundation’s archivist, had stored them unplayed until she heard about Irene.

Last fall, the center extracted audio from one of the records, labeled “Jam Session 9” and emailed the digital file to Ms. Colannino.

“I was just sitting in my dining room, and the next thing I know, I’m hearing Woody,” she said. In between solo performances of “Ladies Auxiliary,” “Jesus Christ,” and “Dead or Alive,” Guthrie tells jokes, offers some back story, and makes the audience laugh. “It is quintessential Guthrie,” Ms. Colannino said.

The Rolfses’ dolls are back in the display cabinet in Wisconsin. But with audio stored on several computers, they now have a permanent voice.
