Penyanyi cantik muda berbakat, Raisa, telah menganggap Adele dan India Arie sebagai panutan dalam bermusik. Bahkan Raisa juga sempat bertemu langsung dengan India Arie saat berkunjung ke Jakarta.

"Saya senang banget sempat ketemu sama India Arie. Dewa bermusik saya itu dia. Secara nyanyi, musikalitas, secara lirik, dia itu panutan saya," ungkapnya di Kawasan Thamrin, Jakarta Pusat .

Tak heran jika lagu kedua penyanyi manca negara itu telah menjadi konsumsi telinganya setiap hari. Raisa juga mengaku harus mendegar lagu Adele dan India Arie.

"Banyak sih, dan tetap yang tidak bisa lepas Adele dan India Arie. Setiap hari harus dengar," ujarnya.

Kendati tak mendengarkan lagu-lagu dari kedua penyanyi itu, diakui Raisa, lagu-lagu mereka juga selalu terngiang di kepalanya. "Kalaupun saya lagi tidak mendengerkan, itu selalu ada di kepala saya," tukasnya.

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
