Kasus Korupsi Simulator Sim

...I. PENDAHULUAN Kasus korupsi mengenai pengadaan simulator SIM yang terjadi dalam Polri merupakan kasus yang terjadi sejak bulan April 2012, dan hingga saat ini penyelesaiannya masih belum tuntas walau pihak terkait sudah menahan beberapa tersangka dan menyelidiki beberapa pihak yang dicurigai. Kasus ini menjadi menarik bagi penulis karena bila dirunut secara singkat, kasus ini merupakan sebuah kasus korupsi sederhana yang menurut penulis bisa diselesaikan dalam kurun waktu yang lumayan singkat. Namun pada kenyataan dilapangan, kasus ini menjadi sangat dramatis karena ketidakmurnian kepentingan. Artinya adalah, kasus ini tidak selesai dengan cepat karena ditunggangi banyak kepentingan. Secara hukum, kasus ini sederhana, dimana diketahui apa penyebabnya, apa yang dipermasalahkan, siapa pelakunya, semuanya terungkap dan seharusnya secara hukum kasus ini bisa terselesaikan secara cepat. Namun dengan adanya 2 pihak yang sebelumnya bekerjasama dalam satu payung, yaitu polri dan KPK, memiliki kepentingan tersendiri dengan mengatasnamakan kepentingan institusinya, kasus ini menjadi rumit. Lalu selanjutnya, penulis akan membahas secara menyeluruh mengenai kasus ini. Mulai dari penyebab awal, kronologi, para tersangka, hingga solusi yang bisa ditawarkan untuk kasus ini sebagai pihak akademisi. Dan penulis juga akan membuat analisa tentang potensi kerugian dan kecurangan lain yang bisa timbul dari kasus dan proses perkembangannya serta pencegahan yang bisa dilakukan. Adanya......

Lunar New Year

...Lunar New Year is the beginning of the year based on a lunar calendar or a lunisolar calendar. It is also called Spring Festival, which is held by several Asian countries, such as China, Vietnam, Mongolia, Tibet, Nepal, Bhutan, and Korea. In China, it is known as “春節 (Chūnjié)”, it marks the end of the winter and lets the spring begin. In Vietnam, it is “Tết Nguyên Đán.” The festival begins on the first day of the first month in the traditional Chinese calendar and ends with Lantern Festival which is on the 15th day. Lunar New Year started from the Era of The Three Sovereigns and Five Emperors in China and it has been changed by years. Each year will be under a Chinese Zodiac in order of Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit (Cat in Vietnam), Dragon, Snake, Horse, Ram, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, and Pig (Boar in Japan and Elephant in Northern Thailand), following with Yin-Yang system and Five Phases (wŭ xíng- includes Metal, Wood, Water, Fire, and Soil.) In Lunar New Year, people believe that everything is new will bring luckiness. About ten days before New Year, people will clean up the house, paint the walls, cook special dishes, and buy some new stuff. Many things are covered by red color- the symbol of luck. This is an opportunity of family reunion. People also avoid fighting, arguing, and saying bad things. The children can get a lot of money in red envelopes to get good luck. Clothing mainly featuring the color red or bright colors is commonly worn throughout the Lunar New Year because......

...Phase 1 Individual Project Phase 1 - Healthcare Foundations HSS103-1403A-04 : Introduction to Healthcare Delivery Systems 7/17/2014 Tamika Warford Explain the various government roles in health care and explain your examples. The government’s involvement in the market exists along a continuum. limited government regulation in the system allows businesses to freely compete. This type of system, a system with limited or no regulations, is described by the term laissez- faire, or “ hands off.” At the far right, complete regulation could be characterized by government owning and running the entire health care system and mandating all components from the types of services provided to the prices that clinicians could charge or how much salary clinicians could earn. Examples of a fully regulated system are the National Health Service in Great Britain, the French health care system or the health care system of the People’s Republic of China. ­According to a study of the cost components of health care, approximately 14.5 percent of the dollars spent on actual use of medical and health care services ($ 339.2 billion of $ 1.34 trillion in personal health expenditures in 2002) in the United States is spent on regulation ( Conover, 2004), and only $ 170 billion of benefit is derived from that government regulation. The roles played by these two different levels of government are dynamic and differ by political ideology. Some believe that to have equitable ­access to care, the...

...Name: Lunar Phase Simulator – Student Guide Part I: Background Material Answer the following questions after reviewing the background pages for the simulator. Page 1 – Introduction to Moon Phases Is there a dark side of the moon? (Note: this question can be effectively answered either yes or no, so it is important to explain your reasoning.) Some people refer to the side of the moon that we never see from Earth as the dark side. However, this is inaccurate since the far side is not always dark. For example, during the new moon, when the side facing Earth is completely dark, the other side of the moon is facing the sun, so it is in full sunlight. Since the Moon rotates at the same time it takes to orbit Earth, both sides of the moon have two weeks of daylight alternating with two weeks of darkness. The only time the far side is completely dark is at full moon, when it faces away from both the Sun and Earth. How long does it take the moon to complete one cycle of phases, in days? _____29.5 If the moon is full today, what phase do you expect it to be at in a week? One week after a full moon comes the third quarter. How about one month later? One month after the full moon is another full moon. Many words in astronomy also non-astronomical uses as well.

Chinese Lunar Lantern Festival

...history, so there are lots of holidays in China. My favorite Chinese holiday is the Lantern Festival. The Lantern Festival is celebrated on the fifteenth day of the first month in lunar calendar. Actually, Lantern Festival is not a real name in its Chinese meaning, because people can not translate that festival’s name correctly due to different culture and language. My favorite festival is the Lantern Festival because there is much fun in the Lantern Festival. In China, we call the Lantern Festival as “Yuan-Xiao Festival”. The reason why Chinese people made this name is that Chinese people have a special calendar called lunar calendar which is based on cycles of lunar phases, and it’s different from the Gregorian calendar which we use now. Thus, the Chinese character “Yuan month” means the first month in lunar calendar, and “Xiao” means the night. So this is what the festival’s name should really be. There are several versions story about the origin of the Lantern Festival, but no one knows which one is true. The most plausible origin states that the Lantern Festival is from Buddhism, and it began from Han dynasty. The emperor Ming of Han dynasty believed Buddhism, and he knew there was some tradition that Buddhists lighted lanterns to show their respect to Buddha’s relics in every fifteenth of lunar January. So the emperor Ming let people light lanterns in the temples and the palace also. Gradually, this tradition spreads up to now. In ancient times, people made......

Solar and Lunar Eclipse

...Lunar eclipse From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia For other uses, see Lunar eclipse (disambiguation). A lunar eclipse occurs when the moon passes behind the earth so that the earth blocks the sun's rays from striking the moon. This can occur only when the Sun, Earth, and Moon are aligned exactly, or very closely so, with the Earth in the middle. Hence, a lunar eclipse can only occur the night of a full moon. The type and length of an eclipse depend upon the Moon's location relative to its orbital nodes. Themost recent total lunar eclipse occurred on June 15, 2011; it was a central eclipse, visible over Europe and south America after sunset, over Africa and most of Asia, and Australia before sunrise. It was also the longest and darkest lunar eclipse of the century, lasting 100 minutes. The previous total lunar eclipse occurred on December 21, 2010, at 08:17 UTC.[ Unlike a solar eclipse, which can only be viewed from a certain relatively small area of the world, a lunar eclipse may be viewed from anywhere on the night side of the Earth. A lunar eclipse lasts for a few hours, whereas a total solar eclipse lasts for only a few minutes at any given place. Types of lunar eclipse The shadow of the Earth can be divided into two distinctive parts: the umbra and penumbra. Within the umbra, there is no direct solar radiation. However, as a result of the Sun’s large angular size, solar illumination is only partially blocked in the outer portion of the Earth’s shadow,......
