Seorang paranormal Malaysia menyebut bahwa pesawat Malaysia Airlines MH370 yang dilaporkan hilang, tidak jatuh atau dibajak teroris seperti asumsi orang selama ini.

Saco-Indonesia.com - Seorang paranormal Malaysia menyebut bahwa pesawat Malaysia Airlines MH370 yang dilaporkan hilang, tidak jatuh atau dibajak teroris seperti asumsi orang selama ini. Menurutnya, pesawat tersebut masih tergantung di atas perairan Laut China Selatan dekat dengan wilayah Vietnam.

Paranormal yang dikenal dengan sebutan Mahaguru Ibrahim Mat Zin itu menyebut pesawat tersebut berada di alam misteri karana disembunyikan oleh makhluk halus. Ibrahim Mat Zin yang sudah berpengalaman lebih 50 tahun sebagai dukun berkata, karena berada di alam jin itulah pesawat yang membawa 230 penumpang itu tidak bisa ditemukan hingga saat ini.

"Oleh itu, semua rakyat di negara ini harus berdoa agar pesawat yang hilang muncul kembali," ujar Mahaguru Ibrahim Mat Zin seperti dikutip dari media Malaysia, Utusan.com, Selasa (11/3).

"Kita berharap dengan usaha ini, pesawat itu akan muncul dalam masa terdekat selewat-lewatnya minggu ini," kata Mat Zin yang datang ke Lapangan Terbang Antarabangsa Kuala Lumpur (KLIA) bersama lima muridnya itu.

saco-indonesia.com, Pengusutan dalam kasus dugaan korupsi proyek pengadaan Mobil Pusat Layanan Internet Kecamatan (MPLIK) masih akan terus ditelusuri oleh Kejaksaan Agung (Kejagung).
 
Namun, hingga kini mantan Direktur Enterprise PT Telkom Indonesia Tbk, Arief Yahya selaku perusahaan BUMN, pemenang tender tak kunjung memenuhi pemeriksaaan Kejagung.
 
Padahal, ia diduga telah mengetahui mengenai dugaan korupsi dalam proyek senilai Rp1,4 triliun di Kementerian Komunikasi dan Informatika (Kemenkominfo) tahun 2010-2012 itu.
 
Atas hal itu, Jaksa Agung Basrief Arief telah menegaskan, kalau pihaknya akan menjemput paksa bila yang bersangkutan kembali mangkir dari pemanggilan yang telah dilakukan.
 
"Pemanggilan dilakukanlah secara formal. Kita panggil 1, 2 kali tidak hadir, kita panggil lagi tetap tidak hadir kita lakukan penjemputan paksa. Kan ada aturan itu kenapa tidak," katanya usai memaparkan hasil kinerja akhir tahun Kejagung di Gedung Kejagung, Jakarta Selatan.
 
Sejauh ini, sambung Basrief, jajarannya masih akan terus melakukan pengembangan atas kasus tersebut dan akan dituntaskan.
 
Basrief juga menambahkan, bukan hanya Arief Yahya yang saja akan diperiksa, siapapun yang diduga terlibat atau mengetahui kasus ini juga akan diperiksa tak terkecuali Menteri Kominfo, Tifatul Sembiring.
 
"Siapapun nanti kalau bagian dari itu akan dimintai keterangan, dari pemeriksaan sampai saat ini belum sampai ke sana (Tifatul), tidak ada hambatan apapun, kita belum ada laporan," pungkasnya.

Salah satu fenomena alam yang mengagumkan adalah api abadi. Api abadi menyala sepanjang waktu, termasuk saat hujan, karena didayai oleh gas alam.

NEW YORK,Saco-Indonesia.com - Salah satu fenomena alam yang mengagumkan adalah api abadi. Api abadi menyala sepanjang waktu, termasuk saat hujan, karena didayai oleh gas alam.

Baru-baru ini, Arndt Schimmelmann, peneliti dari Indiana Universoty di Bloomington, mengungkap misteri terbentuknya salah satu api abadi paling mengagumkan di dunia, yakni api abadi di barat New York, tepatnya Chesnut Ridge Park, yang berdekatan dengan sebuah air terjun.

Biasanya, api abadi didayai oleh gas yang terbentuk dari batuan kuno di lapisan dalam Bumi yang bersuhu tinggi hingga molekul karbon di dalamnya berubah menjadi gas. Gas menyesap keluar dan saat tersulut api membentuk api abadi.

Namun, api abadi di New York ini berbeda. Schimmelmann mengungkapkan, api abadi di New York didayai oleh gas yang diproduksi oleh batuan yang suhunya jauh lebih rendah, cuma setara dengan secangkir teh.

Perbedaan suhu batuan yang membentuk gas memberi petunjuk bahwa gas dihasilkan dengan proses berbeda. Schimmelmann menuturkan, pembentukan gas melibatkan katalis yang memercepat pengubahan molekul organik pada batuan menjadi gas.

"Mekanisme pembentukan gas ini telah diajukan sejak bertahun-tahun lalu, namun belum ada yang meyakininya," kata Schimmelmann seperti dikutip Our Amazing Planet, Minggu (12/5/2013).

"Kami berpikir ada mekanisme pembentukan gas yang berbeda di lokasi ini dan ini mungkin juga dijumpai di lokasi lain. Jika ini benar, maka gas bisa diproduksi secara alami di wilayah lain," imbuh Schimmelmann.

Schimmelmann mengungkap misteri api abadi ini bersama rekannya, Maria Mastalerz dari Indiana Geological Survey serta Giuseppe Etiope, peneliti dari National Institutr of Geophysics and Vulcanology di Italia.

Penelitin tak cuma mengungkap misteri api abadi ini, tetapi juga mengukur jumlah metana yang terbentuk secara alami dan menyesap keluar. Terungkap bahwa 30 persen metana terbentuk dari proses tersebut.

Hasil penelitian dipublikasikan di jurnal Marine and Petroleum Geology bulan Mei 2013 ini. Dengan proses pembentukannya yang berbeda, api abadi di New York sejauh ini menjadi api abadi paling unik di dunia.

Sektor properti perumahan terus tumbuh, PT Betonjaya Manunggal Tbk (BTON) menggenjot kapasitas produksi dengan menambah satu lin

Sektor properti perumahan terus tumbuh, PT Betonjaya Manunggal Tbk (BTON) menggenjot kapasitas produksi dengan menambah satu line mesin produksi besi beton berkapasitas 15.000 ton per tahun yang akan beroperasi Agustus mendatang.

Director PT Bentonjaya Manunggal Tbk Andy Soesanto juga mengatakan, penyerapan besi beton selama ini 90 persen ke sektor properti perumahan.

"Produk kami berupa kolom besi beton berdiameter 6-12 mm, jadi lebih banyak dipakai untuk perumahan, bukan konstruksi besar," katanya, di sela Rapat Umum Pemegang Saham (RUPS) di Shangri-La Hotel, Selasa (26/6/2012).

Utilitas mesin perseroan saat ini baru 60-80 persen dari kapasitas terpasang 45.000 ton per tahun. "Pembelian mesin tersebut juga menggunakan alokasi belanja modal tahun ini yang besarnya Rp 8,8 miliar, dengan rincian untuk investasi tanah Rp 2 miliar, bangunan Rp 2 miliar, mesin dan electricity Rp 4,8 miliar," imbuh Andy.

Perseroan merealisasikan penjualan sepanjang 2011 sebesar Rp 153,56 miliar, tahun ini diproyeksikan tumbuh 15-20 persen menjadi Rp 175-180 miliar dengan target laba bersih Rp 25 miliar.

Sampai dengan Mei, penjualan yang berhasil dibukukan perseroan sebesar Rp 71,6 miliar (11.045 ton) dengan capaian laba bersih Rp 12,4 miliar. "Kami optimistis penjualan naik karena kami fokus ke pasar domestik, dimana fluktuasi harga kolom besi beton tidak seperti di pasar global," yakinnya.

Harga jual besi beton misalnya, per Mei kemarin Rp 6.741 per kg, Mei 2011 Rp 6.037 per kg. Harga jual waste plate Mei ini Rp 5.570 per kg, Mei tahun lalu Rp 4.727 per kg, harga scrap Rp 4.946 per kg sudah naik dari Mei tahun lalu Rp 4.587 per kg. "Selain karena harga jualnya naik, volume produksinya secara kuantitas juga naik," kata Andy.

Tahun ini, perseroan juga membagikan dividen sebesar Rp 20 per lembar saham dengan total Rp 3,6 miliar (19 persen dari laba bersih perseroan tahun 2011).

Besi beton yang telah mempunyai kualitas terbaik terdapat beberapa ciri didalamnya. Kita dapat mengidentifikasi besi beton yang imitasi atau yang asli dan aman. Banyak cara untuk dapat menentukannya. Jika anda mau belajar dan terus belajar, banyak bertanya, sering membaca artikel tentang bangunan ataupun sering bergabung dalam forum-forum kontraktor maka ini sering juga menjadi topic bahasan yang menarik. Ada beberapa tips dalam memilih besi beton yang berkualitas. Pertama adalah, cek pada bentuknya, apakah bentuknya tidak rapi atau rapi. Besi beton yang baik akan tercetak dengan baik semasa dia berada dipabrik. Kedua, pilih yang tidak mengandung banyak karbon, atau jika anda pegang tidak terlalu hitam tangan anda. Dan yang ketiga adalah belilah besi beton pada perusahaan yang sudah jelas dan berpengalaman. Ini juga merupakan hal yang sangat penting, karena perusahaan yang sudah mempunyai reputasi baik, tidak mungkin menjual barang-barang yang tidak layak pakai.

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.”

Mr. Goldberg was a serial Silicon Valley entrepreneur and venture capitalist who was married to Sheryl Sandberg, the chief operating officer of Facebook.

Dave Goldberg Was Lifelong Women’s Advocate

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.

Mr. Mankiewicz, an Oscar-nominated screenwriter for “I Want to Live!,” also wrote episodes of television shows such as “Star Trek” and “Marcus Welby, M.D.”

The magical quality Mr. Lesnie created in shooting the “Babe” films caught the eye of the director Peter Jackson, who chose him to film the fantasy epic.

Ms. Pryor, who served more than two decades in the State Department, was the author of well-regarded biographies of the founder of the American Red Cross and the Confederate commander.

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

HOBART, Tasmania — Few places seem out of reach for China’s leader, Xi Jinping, who has traveled from European capitals to obscure Pacific and Caribbean islands in pursuit of his nation’s strategic interests.

So perhaps it was not surprising when he turned up last fall in this city on the edge of the Southern Ocean to put down a long-distance marker in another faraway region, Antarctica, 2,000 miles south of this Australian port.

Standing on the deck of an icebreaker that ferries Chinese scientists from this last stop before the frozen continent, Mr. Xi pledged that China would continue to expand in one of the few places on earth that remain unexploited by humans.

He signed a five-year accord with the Australian government that allows Chinese vessels and, in the future, aircraft to resupply for fuel and food before heading south. That will help secure easier access to a region that is believed to have vast oil and mineral resources; huge quantities of high-protein sea life; and for times of possible future dire need, fresh water contained in icebergs.

It was not until 1985, about seven decades after Robert Scott and Roald Amundsen raced to the South Pole, that a team representing Beijing hoisted the Chinese flag over the nation’s first Antarctic research base, the Great Wall Station on King George Island.

But now China seems determined to catch up. As it has bolstered spending on Antarctic research, and as the early explorers, especially the United States and Australia, confront stagnant budgets, there is growing concern about its intentions.

China’s operations on the continent — it opened its fourth research station last year, chose a site for a fifth, and is investing in a second icebreaker and new ice-capable planes and helicopters — are already the fastest growing of the 52 signatories to the Antarctic Treaty. That gentlemen’s agreement reached in 1959 bans military activity on the continent and aims to preserve it as one of the world’s last wildernesses; a related pact prohibits mining.

But Mr. Xi’s visit was another sign that China is positioning itself to take advantage of the continent’s resource potential when the treaty expires in 2048 — or in the event that it is ripped up before, Chinese and Australian experts say.

“So far, our research is natural-science based, but we know there is more and more concern about resource security,” said Yang Huigen, director general of the Polar Research Institute of China, who accompanied Mr. Xi last November on his visit to Hobart and stood with him on the icebreaker, Xue Long, or Snow Dragon.

With that in mind, the polar institute recently opened a new division devoted to the study of resources, law, geopolitics and governance in Antarctica and the Arctic, Mr. Yang said.

Australia, a strategic ally of the United States that has strong economic relations with China, is watching China’s buildup in the Antarctic with a mix of gratitude — China’s presence offers support for Australia’s Antarctic science program, which is short of cash — and wariness.

“We should have no illusions about the deeper agenda — one that has not even been agreed to by Chinese scientists but is driven by Xi, and most likely his successors,” said Peter Jennings, executive director of the Australian Strategic Policy Institute and a former senior official in the Australian Department of Defense.

“This is part of a broader pattern of a mercantilist approach all around the world,” Mr. Jennings added. “A big driver of Chinese policy is to secure long-term energy supply and food supply.”

That approach was evident last month when a large Chinese agriculture enterprise announced an expansion of its fishing operations around Antarctica to catch more krill — small, protein-rich crustaceans that are abundant in Antarctic waters.

“The Antarctic is a treasure house for all human beings, and China should go there and share,” Liu Shenli, the chairman of the China National Agricultural Development Group, told China Daily, a state-owned newspaper. China would aim to fish up to two million tons of krill a year, he said, a substantial increase from what it currently harvests.

Because sovereignty over Antarctica is unclear, nations have sought to strengthen their claims over the ice-covered land by building research bases and naming geographic features. China’s fifth station will put it within reach of the six American facilities, and ahead of Australia’s three.

Chinese mappers have also given Chinese names to more than 300 sites, compared with the thousands of locations on the continent with English names.

In the unspoken competition for Antarctica’s future, scientific achievement can also translate into influence. Chinese scientists are driving to be the first to drill and recover an ice core containing tiny air bubbles that provide a record of climate change stretching as far back as 1.5 million years. It is an expensive and delicate effort at which others, including the European Union and Australia, have failed.

In a breakthrough a decade ago, European scientists extracted an ice core nearly two miles long that revealed 800,000 years of climate history. But finding an ice core going back further would allow scientists to examine a change in the earth’s climate cycles believed to have occurred 900,000 to 1.2 million years ago.

China is betting it has found the best location to drill, at an area called Dome A, or Dome Argus, the highest point on the East Antarctic Ice Sheet. Though it is considered one of the coldest places on the planet, with temperatures of 130 degrees below zero Fahrenheit, a Chinese expedition explored the area in 2005 and established a research station in 2009.

“The international community has drilled in lots of places, but no luck so far,” said Xiao Cunde, a member of the first party to reach the site and the deputy director of the Institute for Climate Change at the Chinese Academy of Meteorological Sciences. “We think at Dome A we will have a straight shot at the one-million-year ice core.”

Mr. Xiao said China had already begun drilling and hoped to find what scientists are looking for in four to five years.

To support its Antarctic aspirations, China is building a sophisticated $300 million icebreaker that is expected to be ready in a few years, said Xia Limin, deputy director of the Chinese Arctic and Antarctic Administration in Beijing. It has also bought a high-tech fixed-wing aircraft, outfitted in the United States, for taking sensitive scientific soundings from the ice.

China has chosen the site for its fifth research station at Inexpressible Island, named by a group of British explorers who were stranded at the desolate site in 1912 and survived the winter by excavating a small ice cave.

Mr. Xia said the inhospitable spot was ideal because China did not have a presence in that part of Antarctica, and because the rocky site did not have much snow, making it relatively cheap to build there.

Anne-Marie Brady, a professor of political science at the University of Canterbury in New Zealand and the author of a soon-to-be-released book, “China as a Polar Great Power,” said Chinese scientists also believed they had a good chance of finding mineral and energy resources near the site.

“China is playing a long game in Antarctica and keeping other states guessing about its true intentions and interests are part of its poker hand,” she said. But she noted that China’s interest in finding minerals was presented “loud and clear to domestic audiences” as the main reason it was investing in Antarctica.

Because commercial drilling is banned, estimates of energy and mineral resources in Antarctica rely on remote sensing data and comparisons with similar geological environments elsewhere, said Millard F. Coffin, executive director of the Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies in Hobart.

But the difficulty of extraction in such severe conditions and uncertainty about future commodity prices make it unlikely that China or any country would defy the ban on mining anytime soon.

Tourism, however, is already booming. Travelers from China are still a relatively small contingent in the Antarctic compared with the more than 13,000 Americans who visited in 2013, and as yet there are no licensed Chinese tour operators.

But that is about to change, said Anthony Bergin, deputy director of the Australian Strategic Policy Institute. “I understand very soon there will be Chinese tourists on Chinese vessels with all-Chinese crew in the Antarctic,” he said.
