Mengenal jenis kulit

Sahabat dr.dep

Penting tidak ya dalam mengetahui jenis kulit kita? mengetahui jenis kulit ternyata sangat penting, hal ini juga berguna untuk dapat menjaga kesehatan kulit dan memilih produk perawatan yang sangat tepat. Bila kita tidak cermat dalam memilih produk perawatan kecantikan yang tepat untuk kulit kita, hasil yang kita harapkan dalam perawatan kemungkinan besar tidak akan tercapai.

Secara garis besar pembagian type kulit telah dibagi menjadi 4:

    Kulit berminyak
    Kulit kering
    Kulit seimbang (normal)
    Kulit sensitif

Kita bahas ya satu persatu

1.Kulit berminyak

Kalau kita lihat dengan skin analyzer, tampilan tekstur kulit yang berminyak pada umumnya tebal dan kasar.Pori pori tampak membesar.Kulit juag terlihat mengkilap karena produksi minyak yang berlebihan. Kulit berminyak juga sangat rentan terhadap jerawat dan komedo karena kelebihan sekresi sebum,kelebihan sekresi sebum ini juga dapat menangkap kotoran pada wajah, sehingga dapat mengakibatkan pori-pori akan tersumbat. Nah kalau pori pori sudah tersumbat, ini bisa akan menimbulkan berbagai masalah, salah satu- nya jerawat.

 2. Kulit kering

Tipe kulit kering telah ditandai dengan tidak meratanya tekstur kilapan pada permukaan kulit,hal ini juga dikarenakan kurangnya produksi minyak yang berfungsi untuk dapat melumasi bagian permukaan dari sel-sel kulit.Bisa karena faktor congenital/bawaan atau karena berbagai kondisi.Kulit kering ini dapat dilihat dari penyebabnya karena berkurangnya kandungan air pada stratum corneum (SC).

Jadi kita sudah tahu ya, pengertiannya kulit berminyak dan kulit kering, kedua type kulit ini kadang muncul secara bersamaan, misalnya ada orang yang telah mengalami kulit kering pada bagian V area (dagu sampai pipi), dan bagian T area (dahi) tampak berminyak.Itu yang kita sebut tipe kulit kombinasi.

 3. Kulit seimbang

Tipe kulit yang telah mempunyai keseimbangan antara produksi minyak dan kelembaban, sehingga dapat terjaga kehalusan, kekenyalan dan kelenturannya.

4. Kulit sensitif

Tipe kulit yang bereaksi secara berlebihan pada bahan stimulus (rangsangan) yang paling ringan sekalipun. Kulit mudah berubah kemerahan.

Jika kita sudah mengetahui jenis kulit kita, tentunya kita juga dapat memilih produk perawatan yang sesuai dengan kebutuhan kulit kita.Dengan begitu kita dapat merawat kulit dengan tepat.

Kulit akan menjadi lebih cerah dan sehat, seperti yang kita harapkan.

saco-indonesia.com, Memasang bracket TV memang tidaklah semudah menempatkan TV itu sendiri karena erat sekali hubungannya dengan lubang bor yang akan membekas ketika kita memindahnya. Jika tidak tepat, bukan hanya sisa bekas bor yang tidak sedap dipandang saja , namun juga rumitnya ketika kita menambal dinding sisa bekas bor tersebut. Nah, agar leih cepat dan tepat, berikut saya sajikan tips untuk memasang bracket TV dinding.

Tips untuk Memasang Bracket TV di Dinding
Dalam memasang bracket TV yang baik, ada beberapa hal yang harus kita pertimbangkan, sehingga kita akan merasa aman dan nyaman dalam menempatkan serta menonton TV tersebut. Dari pengalaman saya selama ini, dalam memasang bracket TV dinding perlu mengikuti langkah-langkah berikut:

Tentukan Lokasi
Penentuan lokasi ini juga sangat penting karena disitulah TV kita akan kita tonton, dan tentu masing-masing ruangan telah memiliki tingkat kenyamanan sendiri. Sobat bisa saja menempatkan bracket TV di kamar atau ruang tamu. Setelah itu, usahakan bracket dipasang di dekat stop kontak, sekaligus akan menghadap kemana.

Gunakan Water Pass
Agar posisi TV nantinya akan simetris dan tidak miring, usahakan harus menandai titik dinding yang akan kita bor dengan menggunakan pencil. Ukur kesamaan tingginya memakai water pass, yang dapat sobat gangi dengan menggunakan selang yang diisi air. Ketepatan posisi kanan kiri tidak hanya akan memberi kenyamanan ketika menonton TV, namun juga seni yang sesuai estetika. Bayangkan jika TV kita posisikan miring.

Pastikan kekuatan dinding
Setelah memberi tanda titik yang sesuai dan sama tinggi, pastikan kekuatan dinding yang akan sobat bor. Umumnya, fischer (penahan skrup di dinding) akan dapat menempel sempurna jika tertanam pada benda keras, seperti batako atau batu bata. Fischer tidak akan menancap sempurna ketika telah diletakkan di sekat antara batu bata di dinding.

Coba dengan beban yang lebih berat
Setelah bracket terpasang, ukur kekuatannya dengan menggunakan barang yang beratnya dua kali lipat dari berat LED TV sobat. Jika perlu, pakailah bracket itu untuk bergelantung untuk memastikan kekuatan bracket setelah terpasang di dinding. Tentu sobat tidak ingin LED TV sobat tiba-tiba jatuh karena bracket tidak kuat menahannya bukan?

Pasang TV dengan hati-hati
Memasang TV ke bracket umumnya telah membutuhkan teknik khusus agar skrup-skrup terpasang sempurna. Cari teman atau bantuan untuk memegang TV disaat sobat memasang skrup-skrup tersebut. Jadi intinya, TV dipsang terakhir setelah bracket terpasang.

Itulah sekilas tentang tips memasang bracket TV di dinding. Memang agak rumit, namun dengan kehati-hatian dan ketepatan dalam memasangnya, hasilnya akan sangat elegan. TV sobat tidak hanya nyaman ditonton namun juga memberikan nuansa interior ruangan yang lebih indah. Selamat mencoba dan semoga sukses. Salam.

Asyik pacaran di Fly over Pasar Rebo, Ciracas, Jakarta Timur, pasangan muda-mudi telah jadi korban perampokan, Senin (10/3) kemarin. Akibatnya, handphone dan uang senilai Rp100 ribu serta kepalanya bocor dihantam gir motor.

Asyik pacaran di Fly over Pasar Rebo, Ciracas, Jakarta Timur, pasangan muda-mudi telah jadi korban perampokan, Senin (10/3) kemarin. Akibatnya, handphone dan uang senilai Rp100 ribu serta kepalanya bocor dihantam gir motor.

Muchlis yang berusia 19 , dan Iin yang berusia 21 tahun , tengah asyik ngobrol di atas sepeda motor Yamaha Mio B 6132 TNE miliknya. Lalu dua pemuda yang tidak dikenal datang menghampirinya. “Awalnya mereka hanya menanyakan alamat Rumah Sakit Harapan Bunda,” katanya .

Namun, saat usai menanyakan alamat, salah satu pelaku mengancam korban dengan golok.Keduanya telah diminta menyerahkan harta benda miliknya. “Dua handphone, uang Rp100 ribu diambil pelaku,” tuturnya.

Setelah itu, menurut pemuda yang tinggal di RT 004/02 Gedong, Kramatjati, Jakarta Timur, pelaku langsung melarikan diri dengan mengendarai sepeda motor Honda Supra 125 X. “Tapi yang minta uang juga ngambil kunci motor saya. Sementara yang satu menghantamkan sabuk gir motor yang mengenai kepala saya,” ungkapnya.

Sambil mendorong motor yang kuncinya dibawa kabur pelaku, pemuda yang bercucuran darah dari kepalanya, terus berjalan mencari klinik. Pemuda yang bekerja di salon mobil ini mendapatkan empat jahitan. “Setelah itu saya baru kabari orang rumah untuk minta dijemput,” tuturnya.

Kapolsek Ciracas Kompol Suwanda juga mengaku belum menerima laporan atas kasus tersebut. “Sejak malam kejadian hingga Selasa (11/3) kemarin sore, tidak ada laporan yang masuk atas peristiwa tersebut,” ujarnya.

Namun untuk dapat mencegah aksi itu terulang, ia juga mengaku akan segera merazia dengan mengusir warga yang berada di kawasan tersebut. Penempatan mobil patroli juga akan dilakukan untuk dapat mempersempit segala macam persoalan.

Camat Ciracas Rommy Sidarta juga mengakau pihaknya sudah puluhan kali menertibkan pedagang dan warga yang kerap mangkal di fly over Pasar Rebo. Dimana petugas Satpol PP seakan main kucing-kucingan dengan warga. “Setiap hari kita jaga dari pagi hingga jam 9 malam, namun selepas itu mereka ngumpul lagi,” ungkapnya.

Rommy n juga mengaku, keterbatasan personil dan tenaga petugas Satpol PP yang membuatnya kurang maksimal. Meski begitu, ia berjanji akan mengatur petugasnya lagi agar kejadian tersebut tak terulang. “Yang jelas kita akan lebih giatkan lagi agar kawasan itu bersih dari pedagang dan warga yang nongkrong,” tandasnya.

Orang Sakti (Dukun) Malaysia, Ibrahim Mat Zin, menyatakan bahwa kemungkinan penumpang Malaysia Airlines yang hilang di Laut China Selatan dibawa oleh makhluk halus bernama Orang Bunian.

Saco-Indonesia.com - Orang Sakti (Dukun) Malaysia, Ibrahim Mat Zin, menyatakan bahwa kemungkinan penumpang Malaysia Airlines yang hilang di Laut China Selatan dibawa oleh makhluk halus bernama Orang Bunian. Sebenarnya, siapa orang Bunian ini?

Orang Bunian adalah sebutan orang Melayu terhadap makhluk halus sejenis manusia yang tinggal di dunia mereka sendiri dan terkadang sering mampir ke dunia nyata. Disebutkan, hanya orang tertentu saja, yang dibekali ilmu gaib misalnya, yang bisa mengetahui keberadaan mereka.

Di Indonesia, Orang Bunian sering diartikan sebagai Peri. Namun, sebenarnya hal ini kurang tepat karena Bunian sendiri berarti orang yang bersembunyi atau orang yang bersiul dalam Bahasa melayu.

Penampakan mereka mirip dengan kebanyakan orang Asia Tenggara, memiliki postur tidak terlalu tinggi, rambut hitam, dan kulit sawo matang. mereka biasanya terlihat cantik dan tampan sehingga kemudian disejajarkan dengan Peri.

Orang Bunian disebutkan tinggal di dimensi lain dari yang didiami manusia. Seperti manusia, mereka juga berkeluarga dan memiliki struktur sosialnya.

Tidak ada perbedaan mencolok jika kita membandingkan Orang Bunian dengan manusia biasa. Maka dari itu, banyak cerita kemudian menyebutkan bahwa Orang Bunian bisa jatuh cinta dengan manusia biasa, atau sebaliknya.

Jika hal ini terjadi, maka biasanya Orang Bunian akan membawa orang yang dicintainya itu ke dunia gaibnya dan dinikahi untuk selamanya. Sehingga, ada kemungkinan para penumpang Malaysia Airlines saat ini telah dibawa ke dunia Orang Bunian ini.

Hingga saat ini memang belum ada kepastian apakah keberadaan Orang Bunian bisa dibuktikan dengan cara ilmiah. Berita mengenai mereka pun hanya bersumber dari cerita rakyat atau dongeng yang tidak diketahui sumbernya.

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.

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.

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.”

Mr. Haroche was a founder of Liberty Travel, which grew from a two-man operation to the largest leisure travel operation in the United States.

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.’”

Mr. Napoleon was a self-taught musician whose career began in earnest with the orchestra led by Chico Marx of the Marx Brothers.

Ms. von Furstenberg made her debut in the movies and on the Broadway stage in the early 1950s as a teenager and later reinvented herself as a television actress, writer and philanthropist.

Mr. Alger, who served five terms from Texas, led Republican women in a confrontation with Lyndon B. Johnson that may have cost Richard M. Nixon the 1960 presidential election.

The career criminals in genre novels don’t have money problems. If they need some, they just go out and steal it. But such financial transactions can backfire, which is what happened back in 2004 when the Texas gang in Michael
