saco-indonesia.com, Cuaca ekstrem juga telah melanda Eropa, termasuk Inggris. Di negerinya Ratu Elizabeth itu kini juga sedang dilanda banjir besar.

Met Office (officially the Meteorological Office) atau Badan Meteorologinya Inggris telah menarik kesimpulan bahwa cuaca di eropa telah terpengaruh dari cuaca ekstrem dari belahan bumi lain, termasuk Indonesia.

Menurut Met Office, cuaca ekstrem ini telah terjadi di dua kawasan, yakni Atlantik dan Pasifik. Cuaca buruk di Atlantik telah dipengaruhi oleh pola perubahan awan di atas Samudera Pasifik dan Amerika Utara.

Kondisi itu juga erat hubungannya dengan munculnya badai di Inggris selama bulan Desember dan Januari tahun ini.

Met Office telah melanjutkan, ada perubahan besar arah angin di Pasifik yang telah didorong oleh pola peningkatan curah hujan di Indonesia dan kawasan tropis di Pasifik Barat.

"Terutama dipengaruhi peningkatan suhu laut yang semakin tinggi dan meningkat di atas normal."

saco-indonesia.com, Komisi Pemberantasan Korupsi (KPK) juga mengaku terus akan mendalami aktor utama dibalik kasus korupsi pengadaan alat kesehatan (Alkes), selain Gubernur Banten Ratu Atut Chosiyah yang telah ditahan di Rutan Pondok Bambu, Jakarta Timur.

"Soal Alkes baru hari ini, jadi tunggu saja pengumumannya. Masih akan didalami, nama yang akan bermunculan," ujar Ketua KPK, Abraham Samad, di Gedung Kominfo, Jakarta Pusat, Senin (23/12/2013).

Samad juga mengaku sedang memformulasikan dalam surat perintah penyidikan (sprindik) sebelum menetapkan nama baru dalam kasus tersebut.

"Untuk lebih konkretnya nanti diformulasikan. Jadi kami masih harus formulasikan sebelum menetapkan nama lain yang terlibat," pungkasnya.

Sebelumnya, Wakil Ketua Komisi Pemberantasan Korupsi (KPK) Bidang Penindakan dan Pencegahan, Busyro Muqqodas juga mengatakan, penyidik KPK tengah berusaha keras untuk dapat menyelidiki dugaan keterlibatan Wali Kota Tangerang Selatan, Airin Rachmi Diany dalam kasus dugaan korupsi pengadaan alat kesehatan di Pemkot Tangsel.

Busyro juga menuturkan saat ini KPK memang memulainya dari bawah melalui penetapan pejabat Dinkes Tangsel, Mamak Jamaksari selaku Pejabat Pembuat Komitmen (PPK) proyek senilai Rp23 miliar itu.

"Selama ini kan bisa dilihat gimana cari kerja kita, semua telah dimulai dari bawah, minggir-minggir langsung nabrak ke atas kan. Bisa dilihat contohnya PON Riau itu siapa dulu yang kena, minggir-minggir gubernurnya langsung kena kan. Travel cek, itu pertama dari anggota DPR Agus Condro sampai ke Miranda Goeltom-kan. Itu memang karakter kerja KPK. Jadi semuanya analog dengan itu," kata Busyro.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Mr. Paczynski was one of the concentration camp’s longest surviving inmates and served as the personal barber to its Nazi commandant Rudolf Höss.
