jengkol di sejumlah daerah hingga menyentuh angka Rp 50.000 per kilogram memicu spekulasi soal
LEBAK, Saco-Indonesia.com — Naiknya harga jengkol di sejumlah daerah hingga menyentuh angka Rp 50.000 per kilogram memicu spekulasi soal pemicunya. Apa kira-kira penyebabnya?
Para pedagang di Pasar Rangkasbitung, Kabupaten Lebak, Banten, misalnya, menduga kenaikan tersebut akibat terjadi kelangkaan di pasaran. Suryani, seorang pedagang sayur-sayuran di Pasar Rangkasbitung mengatakan, sejak tiga pekan terakhir, pasokan jengkol dari petani menghilang.
Menghilangnya pasokan jengkol kemungkinan karena belum memasuki musim panen.
"Karena itu, jika ada jengkol dipastikan harganya melambung hingga mencapai Rp 50.000/kg atau melebihi harga daging ayam sebesar Rp 25.000. Harga normal jengkol bisanya sekitar Rp20 ribu/kg," katanya.
Sementara itu, Soleh, seorang pedagang di Pasar Rangkasbitung, menduga pasokan jengkol dari sejumlah petani di Kabupaten Lebak berkurang karena banyak pohon jengkol ditebang untuk keperluan bangunan perumahan maupun kerajinan rumah tangga.
"Berkurangnya pasokan jengkol itu karena banyak pohon jengkol beralih fungsi menjadi perumahan maupun perkebunan. Sebelumnya, sentra jengkol di Kabupaten Lebak hampir merata di setiap kecamatan," ujarnya.
Ia mengatakan, saat ini, jengkol di Rangkasbitung dipasok dari Provinsi Lampung dan Palembang.
"Kami berharap petani bisa mengembangkan kembali tanaman jengkol karena permintaan pasar cukup tinggi," katanya.
Kepala Pasar Rangkasbitung Dedi Rahmat mengakui selama ini pasokan jengkol di pasaran menghilang sehingga pedagang terpaksa berjualan komoditas lain. Mereka para pedagang jengkol saat ini beralih menjadi pedagang buah-buahan maupun umbi- umbian akibat kelangkaan tersebut.
"Saya kira kelangkaan jengkol ini kali pertama akibat belum tibanya musim panen juga banyak pohon jengkol digunakan untuk pembangunan rumah," katanya.

RIO DE JANEIRO, Saco-Indonesia.com — Brasil berhasil menghajar Perancis 3-0 pada laga persahabatan di Gremio Arena, Minggu atau Senin (10/6/2013) dini hari WIB. Ketiga gol Brasil dicetak Oscar, Hernanes, dan Lucas Moura.
Setelah ditahan Inggris 2-2 pada laga persahabatan pekan lalu, Brasil berusaha tampil lebih tajam. Mereka mampu mendominasi dalam penguasaan bola.
Namun, Perancis memberi perlawanan ketat sepanjang babak pertama sehingga kreasi Brasil kerap menemui kegagalan.
Baru pada menit ke-54, usaha Brasil mendatangkan hasil. Umpan Fred dengan baik diselesaikan Oscar lewat kaki kanannya, membobol gawang perancis yang dikawal Hugo Lloris.
Keunggulan itu membuat Brasil semakin bersemangat, sementara Perancis mencoba bangkit dan menyamakan kedudukan. Namun, Brasil tetap lebih dominan.
Pada menit ke-85, Brasil menggandakan keunggulannya. Berawal dari serangan balik yang cepat, Hernanes kemudian mendapat umpan dari Neymar. Meski jarak dari gawang Perancis masih jauh, Hernanes mencoba melepaskan tendangan keras dengan kaki kirinya. Usaha sukses. Bola menusuk pojok kiri gawang Perancis tanpa bisa dicegah Lloris.
Pada menit ke-90, pemain Perancis melakukan pelanggaran kepada Marcelo di kotak terlarang. Wasit langsung menunjuk titik putih. Lucas Moura yang menjadi algojo dengan mudah membobol gawang Perancis, sekaligus memastikan kemenangan Brasil dengan skor 3-0.
Sepanjang laga, Brasil melakukan 16 kali percobaan mencetak gol, tapi hanya lima usaha yang tepat sasaran. Sebaliknya, Perancis hanya melakukan 8 percobaan, itu pun yang tepat sasaran cuma satu.
Brasil: 12-Julio Cesar, 2-Dani Alves, 3-Thiago Silva, 4-David Luiz, 6-Marcelo, 10-Neymar, 11-Oscar (7-Lucas Moura 65), 17-Luis Gustavo Dias (8 -Hernanes 81), 18-Paulinho, 19-Hulk (5-Fernando 65), 9-Fred (21-Jo 71)
Perancis: 1-Hugo Lloris, 2-Mathieu Debuchy, 3-Jeremy Mathieu, 4-Adil Rami, 5-Mamadou Sakho, 6-Yohan Cabaye (18-Bafetimbi Gomis 82), 7-Dimitri Payet, 8-Mathieu Valbuena (14-Alexandre Lacazette 70), 12-Blaise Matuidi (11-Clément Grenier 70), 19-Josua Guilavogui, 10-Karim Benzema (9-Olivier Giroud 71)

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.
