Motor Serka ZA yang berjenis Yamaha Mio warna hitam bernomor polisi BG 6876 FX.

"Saya datang sekitar pukul 20.00 WIB untuk dapat dipijat karena saya merasa badan pegal-pegal. Namun usai dipijat dan hendak pulang ke rumah pukul 22.00 WIB telah mendapati motor saya jenis Yamaha Mio warna hitam BG 6876 FX telah hilang," kata Serka ZA saat ditemui di Mapolres OKU.

ZA juga mengatakan, dirinya juga sempat mencari dan berusaha menanyakan kepada warga sekitar, namun tak seorang pun yang telah mengetahui keberadaan motornya tersebut.

"Sebelum saya melapor ke Polres, saya juga sudah mencoba mencari tapi tak ada yang tahu," ujarnya.

Sementara itu, menurut Yunizar yang berusia (41) tahun , salah seorang pekerja di Panti Pijat Tarina, ZA datang ke panti pijat itu sekitar pukul 20.00 WIB. Namun, ia juga mengaku tidak mengetahui secara pasti soal motor milik Serka ZA tersebut.

"Memang saya yang memijat bapak itu, tetapi saya tidak tahu dia datang ke sini dengan menggunakan motor. Sebelum keluar bapak itu juga sempat minta air minum dan merokok. Begitu keluar dia juga mengaku telah kehilangan motornya," kata Yunizar.

Kanit Pidum Polres OKU, Iptu Yuliko Saputra SH membenarkan telah menerima laporan kehilangan motor jenis Yamaha Mio milik anggota TNI.

saco-indonesia.com, Sepanjang dalam tahun 2013, telah tercatat ada 773 kasus kecelakaan yang terjadi di wilayah Jakarta Timur. Dari jumlah tersebut, sebanyak 99 orang telah dinyatakan meninggal dunia.

"Kami juga berharap dalam kasus kecelakaan lalu lintas terus akan mengalami penurunan. Di sini perlu kesadaran para pengendara agar harus mematuhi rambu-rambu lalu lintas dan harus lebih berhati-hati dalam berkendara," ujar Kanit Laka Satwil Lantas Jakarta Timur, AKP Agung B Leksono, Senin (30/12).

Nilai kerugian materi yang timbul akibat kecelakaan tersebut lebih kurang telah mencapai Rp 2 miliar. Sebagian besar kecelakaan telah disebabkan oleh kelalaian pengendara, baik karena mengantuk maupun menggunakan telepon genggam sambil mengemudi.

"Untuk meminimalisir, kami juga sudah melakukan sosialisasi tentang tertib berlalu lintas secara rutin. Bahkan ke sekolah-sekolah. Kita juga rutin menggelar razia atau operasi agar pengendara tertib dalam berlalu lintas," ucapnya.

Adapun kasus-kasus kecelakaan menonjol di wilayah Jakarta Timur, antara lain dalam kasus kecelakaan anak Menko Perekonomian Hatta Rajasa, Rasyid Rajasa. Rasyid telah terlibat kecelakaan di Tol Jagorawi pada malam tahun baru lalu. Rasyid yang sedang mengendarai BMW X5 telah menabrak mobil minibus Luxio yang telah mengakibatkan dua orang meninggal dunia. Dalam persidangan hakim telah memberikan hukuman percobaan selama 6 bulan penjara jika Rasyid kembali terlibat kecelakaan.

Selain itu, kasus kecelakaan yang telah melibatkan putra bungsu Ahmad Dhani, Dul yang berusia (13) di Tol Jagorawi sehingga mengakibatkan 7 orang meninggal dunia.

Though Robin and Joan Rolfs owned two rare talking dolls manufactured by Thomas Edison’s phonograph company in 1890, they did not dare play the wax cylinder records tucked inside each one.

The Rolfses, longtime collectors of Edison phonographs, knew that if they turned the cranks on the dolls’ backs, the steel phonograph needle might damage or destroy the grooves of the hollow, ring-shaped cylinder. And so for years, the dolls sat side by side inside a display cabinet, bearers of a message from the dawn of sound recording that nobody could hear.

In 1890, Edison’s dolls were a flop; production lasted only six weeks. Children found them difficult to operate and more scary than cuddly. The recordings inside, which featured snippets of nursery rhymes, wore out quickly.

Yet sound historians say the cylinders were the first entertainment records ever made, and the young girls hired to recite the rhymes were the world’s first recording artists.

Year after year, the Rolfses asked experts if there might be a safe way to play the recordings. Then a government laboratory developed a method to play fragile records without touching them.

Audio

The technique relies on a microscope to create images of the grooves in exquisite detail. A computer approximates — with great accuracy — the sounds that would have been created by a needle moving through those grooves.

In 2014, the technology was made available for the first time outside the laboratory.

“The fear all along is that we don’t want to damage these records. We don’t want to put a stylus on them,” said Jerry Fabris, the curator of the Thomas Edison Historical Park in West Orange, N.J. “Now we have the technology to play them safely.”

Last month, the Historical Park posted online three never-before-heard Edison doll recordings, including the two from the Rolfses’ collection. “There are probably more out there, and we’re hoping people will now get them digitized,” Mr. Fabris said.

The technology, which is known as Irene (Image, Reconstruct, Erase Noise, Etc.), was developed by the particle physicist Carl Haber and the engineer Earl Cornell at Lawrence Berkeley. Irene extracts sound from cylinder and disk records. It can also reconstruct audio from recordings so badly damaged they were deemed unplayable.

“We are now hearing sounds from history that I did not expect to hear in my lifetime,” Mr. Fabris said.

The Rolfses said they were not sure what to expect in August when they carefully packed their two Edison doll cylinders, still attached to their motors, and drove from their home in Hortonville, Wis., to the National Document Conservation Center in Andover, Mass. The center had recently acquired Irene technology.

Audio

Cylinders carry sound in a spiral groove cut by a phonograph recording needle that vibrates up and down, creating a surface made of tiny hills and valleys. In the Irene set-up, a microscope perched above the shaft takes thousands of high-resolution images of small sections of the grooves.

Stitched together, the images provide a topographic map of the cylinder’s surface, charting changes in depth as small as one five-hundredth the thickness of a human hair. Pitch, volume and timbre are all encoded in the hills and valleys and the speed at which the record is played.

At the conservation center, the preservation specialist Mason Vander Lugt attached one of the cylinders to the end of a rotating shaft. Huddled around a computer screen, the Rolfses first saw the wiggly waveform generated by Irene. Then came the digital audio. The words were at first indistinct, but as Mr. Lugt filtered out more of the noise, the rhyme became clearer.

“That was the Eureka moment,” Mr. Rolfs said.

In 1890, a girl in Edison’s laboratory had recited:

There was a little girl,

And she had a little curl

Right in the middle of her forehead.

When she was good,

She was very, very good.

But when she was bad, she was horrid.

Recently, the conservation center turned up another surprise.

In 2010, the Woody Guthrie Foundation received 18 oversize phonograph disks from an anonymous donor. No one knew if any of the dirt-stained recordings featured Guthrie, but Tiffany Colannino, then the foundation’s archivist, had stored them unplayed until she heard about Irene.

Last fall, the center extracted audio from one of the records, labeled “Jam Session 9” and emailed the digital file to Ms. Colannino.

“I was just sitting in my dining room, and the next thing I know, I’m hearing Woody,” she said. In between solo performances of “Ladies Auxiliary,” “Jesus Christ,” and “Dead or Alive,” Guthrie tells jokes, offers some back story, and makes the audience laugh. “It is quintessential Guthrie,” Ms. Colannino said.

The Rolfses’ dolls are back in the display cabinet in Wisconsin. But with audio stored on several computers, they now have a permanent voice.

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.
