 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ibnu_Sutowo

Ibnu Muhari (23 September 1914 Yogyakarta – 12 January 2001 Jakarta) was an Indonesian army officer, Cabinet Minister and former head of the Indonesian oil and gas producer Pertamina.

Ibnu was born near the Yogyakarta Sultan’s palace on 23 September 1914. His father had been a regency head near the city of Semarang in Central Java. His privileged background at the time of the colonial Dutch East Indies allowed him to attend a superior Dutch school and then medical school in Surabaya. Upon graduation, Ibnu was assigned to a colony of Javanese transmigrants in Belitung in South Sumatra. During the Japanese occupation in World War II, Ibnu, like many indigenous Indonesians filling in for imprisoned Europeans, assumed many local administrative powers. By the time of Japan’s surrender, he was a leader in irregular forces backing the Indonesian Republic in its fight for independence.

In 1945, Ibnu was appointed a combined staff and medical officer of the republican army fighting the Dutch for the Palembang regions oil fields and plantations, and once Indonesia’s independence was secured in 1949, he worked in the region’s civilian health service whilst remaining in active army duty. He was appointed head of the South Sumatra’s Sriwijaya Division in 1955, a division which earned much revenue for the army during the independence struggle by smuggling vast quantities of rubber, tea, pepper and coffee to Singapore. Although the independence struggle was over by late 1949, the lucrative trade continued, and Ibnu benefited through his wife, Zaleha, the daughter of a wealthy family who later succeeded in business in her own right. Army commander, General Nasution, recognised Ibnu’s administrative skills and appointed him in 1956 as Chief of Logistics and subsequently added the position of chief of Operations. He returned to Palembang to talk his former troops out of joining the anti-Sukarno rebellions in Sumatra and Sulawesi. Ibnu’s military prospects were thwarted by the 1958 Tanjung Priok smuggling scandal in which he was the main actor.

In 1957, Dutch assets in petroleum were nationalised and Permina founded. General Nasution installed Sutowo as Permina’s head. He served as Minister of Mines, Oil, and Natural Gas in President Suharto‘s “New Order” emergency cabinets of 1966. Sutowo’s younger brother had been Communist mayor of Surabaya, however, the New Order’s promotion of Sutowo despite his Communist connections were exceptions in this period of Communist purges.

Using the proceeds from the 1970s oil price rises, he expanded the state run oil monopoly’s interests far beyond oil production to include investments in oil tankers, steel and construction. Bruce Rappaport, an oil tanker broker, was accused of price gouging, and corruption, in a World Bank investigation of Ibnu and Pertamina. In 1976, Pertamina had built up debts of US$10.5 billion equivalent to 30% of Indonesia’s gross domestic product at the time) and was unable to service them. Ibnu was “dismissed with honour”, and in 1978 the attorney general announced he had been found “not involved” in criminal activity. He continued to manage thirty seven private companies.

Pertamina

In 1974 Sutowo flew to Gothenberg Sweden where he chritened the new oil supertanker IBNU alongside close friend Itzac Rappaport. He then golfed with Arnold Palmer, Sam Snead and Gary Player.

*SUTOWO was the “money” man.

https://thesandymonocle.wordpress.com/2012/11/17/the-bakrie-goods/

From The Santos Republic:
 
 
 
 
 
Aburizal Bakrie (born 15 November 1946) is a politician, and widely recognized as one of the most successful pribumi (native Indonesian) businessmen in Indonesia. From 2004 until 2009 he served as Coordinating Minister for People’s Welfare. Since 2009, Bakrie serves as the Chairman of the Golkar Party and since June 2012 as his party’s official candidate for Indonesia’s 2014 Presidential election
 

The Bakrie family: an Indonesian business dynasty mired in controversy

To many, Nat Rothschild’s partners in his mining venture will forever be linked with Indonesia’s mud volcano disaster of 2006.

The scandal engulfing Nat Rothschild’s Indonesian mining venture, Bumi, has raised questions about the involvement of his local partners, the politically influential Bakrie family, whose leading light is expected to run for the country’s presidency in two years’ time.

Behind the Bakrie Group is a family dynasty that currently has three key players, the brothers Aburizal, Nirwan and Indra. The group has fingers in lots of different pies, from media outlets and life insurance to mining, agriculture, construction, trade, and property development.

The brothers’ late father, Ahmad Bakrie, founded the Bakrie & Brothers holding company in 1942 as a modest trading enterprise, but it was to become a giant conglomerate that suffered a devastating reversal of fortune with the Asian financial crisis in 1997. At that time, according to the FT, the Bakrie Group had incurred debts worth $1.1b (£0.7bn)), with its creditors losing 80% of their money and the family retaining less than 3% of its starting shares.

The Bakries are often acknowledged with a shrug of wariness in Indonesia, not least because the family – whose members fly around the archipelago in private jets – is linked by many to the world’s largest mud volcano disaster in 2006. A gas exploration that went wrong in eastern Java resulted in the burial under sludge of thousands of people’s homes and businesses, and six years on the muck has only now slowed to one-tenth of its previous flow.

Indonesia’s national commission on human rights last month declared the disaster a human rights violation, and found that the Bakries’ drilling firm had paid insufficient compensation to those affected.

Ruth (Baker) Ndesandjo

Born Ruth Beatrice Baker, in US c. 1937, to Maurice Joseph Baker and Ida Baker of Newton, Massachusetts, who are of Lithuanian Jewish descent.[108] Ruth was a 1954 graduate of Brookline High School in Brookline, Massachusetts, and a 1958 graduate of Simmons College in Boston with a degree in business. She was a suburban elementary school teacher when she met and began dating Barack, Sr., in Cambridge in June 1964, a month before his return to Kenya in August 1964. Ruth followed Obama, Sr., back to Kenya five weeks later, and married him in Kenya in a civil ceremony on December 24, 1964. She later became a private kindergarten director in Kenya. Ruth’s two sons with Barack Obama, Sr., are Mark and David. Since she remarried when they were young, they took their stepfather’s surname, Ndesandjo, as their own. Her third son, Joseph Ndesandjo, was born c. 1980 in her second marriage.

Newton Diehl Baker, Jr. (December 3, 1871 – December 25, 1937) was an American politician who belonged to the Democratic Party. He served as the 37th mayor of Cleveland, Ohio from 1912 to 1915 and as U.S. Secretary of War from 1916 to 1921.

Abu Bakr “al Siddiq”

(ca. 570-634)


One of the first followers of Muhammad who, in 632, became the first of the four “rightly guided” caliphs. Abu Bakr repeatedly led the Muslim community in prayer in the lifetime of the Prophet. The latter used to call him by his patronyms of Abu Bakr and Ibn Abi Quhafa, and named him with the attributes “The Most Truthful” (al-Siddîq) and “Allah’s Freedman From the Fire” (`Atîq Allâh min al-nâr). The Prophet confirmed his high rank in many of his sayings, among them:

“Allah gave one of His servants a choice between this world and what He has with Him, and that servant chose what Allah has with Him.” Abu Bakr wept profusely and we wondered why he wept, since the Prophet had told of a servant that was given a choice. The Prophet himself was that servant, as Abu Bakr later told us. The Prophet continued: “Among those most dedicated to me in his companionship and property is Abu Bakr. If I were to take an intimate friend other than my Lord, I would take Abu Bakr. But what binds us is the brotherhood of Islam and its love. Let no door [of the Prophet’s mosque] remain open except Abu Bakr’s.”

http://en.metapedia.org/wiki/Sohale_Siddiqi

Sohale Siddiqi (also Hal Siddiqi) was the best friend and roommate of Barack Obama while he attended Columbia University in the early 1980s. He is identified as “Sadik” in Obama’s memoir, Dreams From My Father. Obama describes Saddiqi as “a short, well-built Pakistani” who smoked marijuana and snorted cocaine. Siddiqi was from Karachi, Pakistan and came to America from London on a tourist visa. He overstayed his visa becoming an illegal alien.

Hut 4 is the Tiger Woods:

Again, linens by Martha Stewart cozy up this hut in patterns of animal skins. Crystal glass containers filled with golf balls adorn the fireplace conversation pit.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Martha_Stewart

The decor is tied in with white cotton linens in a greek key scroll, a tribute to Martha’s heritage. The closets of this hut come complete with many sizes of Victoria’s secret designs for frequent female visitors. Flat breads from Norway are stocked in it’s bar.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Woods_Fund_of_Chicago

The Woods Fund of Chicago is a private independent foundation in Chicago, whose goal is to increase opportunities for less-advantaged people and communities in the Chicago metropolitan area, including the opportunity to shape decisions affecting them.

The Woods Charitable Fund was incorporated in Nebraska in 1941 by Frank Henry Woods, Sr. (1868–1952) and Nelle Cochrane Woods (1870–1950) of Lincoln, Nebraska and their three sons: Thomas Cochrane Woods, Sr. (1895–1958) of Lincoln, and Henry Cochrane Woods, Sr. (1895–1968) and Frank Henry Woods, Jr. (1905–1980) of Chicago, and operated in both Lincoln and Chicago for 53 years through 1993, when the Woods Charitable Fund was reorganized into two separate foundations, with separate officers, boards of directors, and staff.

The Woods Fund of Chicago was incorporated in Illinois on November 15, 1993, and effective January 1, 1994 was allocated 70% of the market value of the assets of the Woods Charitable Fund and began operation and continued the Fund’s philanthropy in Chicago, while the Woods Charitable Fund continued its philanthropy in Lincoln.

The principal for the foundation came from business interests in the Lincoln Telephone & Telegraph Co. of Lincoln, Nebraska, the Sahara Coal Co. headquartered in Chicago with mines in Saline County in far Southern Illinois, and Addressograph-Multigraph Corp. of Cleveland, Ohio.

In 2004, the Woods Fund of Chicago was the 43rd largest foundation in Illinois by total assets with assets of $67,304,215.

Hut 5 features artwork and framed pictures of Fred Hampton and is known as our “Hampton Suite” While not a golfer, we think he may have been a fan. The kitchen is known as the “Johnson Cook Shop” for Fred’s girlfriend and mother of Fred Junior so the kitchen is named for Ms. Johnson. The decor is cabin style in nice prints by Carole Little inspired designs. Malcolm Little aka Malcolm X would be proud.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toro

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toro_(company)

Founded as the Toro Motor Company in 1914 to build tractor engines for The Bull Tractor Company, Toro manufactures and sells turf and landscape maintenance equipment and precision irrigation systems for use by landscape contractors, golf course superintendents, sports fields and grounds managers, as well as individual consumers.

In 1986, Toro acquired the Wheel Horse Products Division of American Motors (AMC) Wheel Horse manufactured a wide range of lawn and garden tractors, as well as riding lawn mowers. The division was spun off from AMC so that the automaker could maintain focus on vehicles. Lawn and garden tractors were then marketed under the Toro, Wheel Horse, as well as the Toro Wheel Horse names. Acquisitions continued with the purchase of Lawn-Boy in 1989, James Hardie Irrigation in 1996, Exmark Manufacturing in 1997, Hayter Ltd. in 2005, Rain Master Irrigation Systems and Turf Guard Wireless Monitoring Technology in 2007, TyCrop Manufacturing Ltd. in 2009, and USPraxis, Inc. in 2010.

In the 1990s, then CEO Kendrick Melrose changed the company’s strategy, shifting its focus to “professional maintenance markets” (such as golf courses, sports fields, municipal parks, and commercial properties). The strategy yielded higher margins and offered more protection from the uncertainty of weather and economic conditions than the highly competitive residential market segments. In 2007, almost 70 percent of the company’s sales came from professional markets, versus one-third in 1990.

In 2007, the low-end lawn and garden tractor product manufacturing was outsourced to MTD Products, to be sold at Home Depot stores.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wheel_Horse

The business was started in the two-car garage of Cecil Pond in 1946. Pond began building two-wheel, self-propelled “Walk-Away” garden tractors that were sold under the Pond name. Due to a naming conflict with another company, the company’s name was changed to Wheel Horse. Pond’s son Cecil Elwood Pond continued to develop and market the company’s products. The framework was typically simple angle or channel iron and various surplus motorcycle and automotive parts were used. In 1947, a four-wheel tractor, the “Ride-Away” model was introduced for garden use. It was also made from crude parts and without a hood for easy service access.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Motors

American Motors Corporation (AMC) was an American automobile company formed by the 1954 merger of Nash-Kelvinator Corporation and Hudson Motor Car Company. At the time, it was the largest corporate merger in U.S. history.

George W. Mason was the architect of the merger to reap benefits from the strengths of the two firms to battle the much larger “Big Three” automakers (General Motors, Ford, and Chrysler). Within a year George W. Romney took over, reorganizing the company and focusing AMC’s future on a new small car line. By the end of 1957 the original Nash and Hudson brands were completely phased out. The company struggled at first, but Rambler sales took off. A Rambler won the 1959 Mobil Economy Run and the cars achieved the US’ third highest sales figures in 1960 and 1961. In the mid-1960s, under Roy Abernethy‘s leadership, AMC focused on larger and more profitable car lines to move away from the perceived negative of the Rambler‘s compact car image. In the face of deteriorating financial and market positions, Roy D. Chapin, Jr., took charge to revitalize the company, and designer Richard A. Teague economized by developing several vehicles from common stampings. While prices and costs were cut, new and more sporty automobiles were introduced, and from 1968 AMC became known for the Javelin and AMX muscle cars.

    From another post here:

    https://thesandymonocle.wordpress.com/2012/10/03/my-kennedy-notes-and-the-land-of-os/

    h/t Alf, who leaves this comment, and I add it as well here:

    2/26/13:
    Howdy Renee, Thought you might like having a puzzle piece. As of 2012, you can see here that Richard Ndesandjo is still playing tennis. He belongs also to Kenya’s lawn tennis Association. He’s around 38 years old. He seems to run with a wealthy crowd. Now , here’s the thing; I am going to assume, in the two tennis photos at the Karen country club, he is most definately in one of these photos. His name is listed on the left. The way the names are listed is misleading, but if we assume he may be black like so many other Ndesandjo/nedesanjos , then we have a good chance that the one and only black dude in these photos is Richard Ndesandjo (age looks right). I found him playing in other venues in 2011 also, in Kenya. He is always called a compatriot of Kenya.
    Now even though mrs. Ndesandjo claims she named her Madari kinderg. after the three fellows, but not Joseph, I will bet you what ever you want to bet that Richard is not a son of Ruth’s, maybe Simeion’s (only maybe). There was another Ndesandjo that worked at Kenya Broadcasting Corp. or the recording studio of Simeon’s. In the technical recording/sound department. You can still download music from a website of his. Perhaps Steven Ndesandjo (that’s his name) is really a son of Simeon’s and Victoria Ndesandjo’s. I have to say, It cannot be confirmed Ruth was ever married to Simeon….she may have been alowed to use his name(seeing that she was an ex-patriated citizen in Kenya and perhaps she needed a cover name. (I have my reasons to think so)
    The Kenya broadcasting studio in the old days, Simeone is already there…told by an old guy that says Simeon gave him his start there. This radio station was the station that was broken into at gun point by and was used during the 1982 coup. The coup was declared over the radio. The old guy who tells the story was the one who was held there to broadcast. I think his name was Mambo or Jambo. Now most important of all is he talks about Simeon Ndesandjo in the past tense, as in the LATE Mr. Simeons Ndesandjo. It is quite likely, if there is a facebook using Simeon N. it is a cover for Ruth to talk to Dora and “Joey” Ndesandjo. Simeon is passed away Renee!
    Simeon was like the mentor to all the ones breaking into radio so he’d been around awhile.It was a time of lots of musicians coming from Tanzania and the Congo/Zaire and having a venue for their bands. Ndesandjo had a recording studio I think for these guys.
    Here’s a couple names you might enjoy exploring for your Kennedy research. Priscilla Johnso…you must look deep…..and then another name, which intrigued me, only there is very little on him, but his name jumped out at me, because remember Ruth’s name changed so much, from Nides, Nidesand, to Ndesand-jo.—but of course this guy is associated with the Kennedy stuff. His name was Joannides. See what you can find.
    You do know that Ruth Hyde Paine’s sister and brother in law and father worked for the government, and had special clearance, but it’s notknown what they did. If they worked ‘deep’ cover, there would be very little records on them, but it’s true.
    I ‘m glad I found you Renee, I’ve missed you.

    And an Incledon in here too that gets two breakfasts:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tolkien_family
    Arthur TolkienArthur Reuel Tolkien (c. February 1857—15 February 1896), the father of author J.R.R. Tolkien, was born in Handsworth, Staffordshire, England. He was the eldest child of John Benjamin Tolkien and Mary Jane Stowe,[7] who had married on 16 February 1856 in All Saints Parish Church, Birmingham, Warwickshire, England.

    Arthur had 6 siblings:

    Mabel Tolkien (1858–1937), who married Thomas Evans Mitton;
    Grace Bindley Tolkien (b. 1861), who married William Charles Mountain;
    Florence Mary Tolkien (b. 1863), who married Tom Hadley;
    Marian Esther Tolkien (1866–1934), who married Frederick William Chippendale;
    Wilfred Henry Tolkien (1870–1938), a stockbroker, who married Katherine Madeleine Green; and
    Lawrence George H. Tolkien (b. 1873), a life and fire insurance secretary, who married (Emily) Grace McGregor.
    Arthur’s father John had previously been married to Jane Holmwood, with whom he had four children: Emily (b. 1838), Louisa (b. 1840), John Benjamin (b. 1845), and Jane (b. 1846).

    John Benjamin Tolkien had been a piano teacher and tuner, as well as a music seller, but he had gone bankrupt in 1877, when he was described as “John Benjamin Tolkien, of High-street, Birmingham, in the county of Warwick, Pianoforte and Music Seller”.[8] Arthur did not follow his father into the traditional Tolkien trade in pianos, which many of his London cousins also followed; instead he became a bank clerk and ended up moving to Bloemfontein in the Orange Free State (now part of South Africa), where he became manager of the Bloemfontein branch of the Bank of Africa.[9] A furniture shop[10][dead link] now occupies the Bradlow’s Building on the site where the bank once stood, on the corner of West Burger and Maitland Streets.

    Arthur was later joined by his fiancée, Mabel Suffield. They were married on 16 April 1891 at the St. George’s Cathedral, Cape Town, Cape Colony (now Cape Province, South Africa). Two children (John Ronald Reuel (b. 1892) and Hilary Arthur Reuel (b. 1894) followed, and the family lived next door to the bank.

    Mabel Tolkien felt the English climate would be better for the boys’ health and returned to England with them in 1895. Arthur remained in South Africa, where he died of severe haemorrhage following rheumatic fever, on 15 February 1896, before he had the opportunity to join his family in England.

    He is buried in President Brand Cemetery, on the corner of Church and Rhodes Avenues, Bloemfontein.[10][dead link]

    [edit] Mabel TolkienMabel Tolkien, born Suffield (1870– 14 November 1904) was the mother of J. R. R. Tolkien.

    Her parents, John Suffield and Emily Jane Sparrow, lived in Stirling Road, Birmingham and owned a shop in the city centre. The Suffield family had a business in a building called Lamb House since 1812. From 1812 William Suffield ran a book and stationery shop there; Tolkien’s great-grandfather, also John Suffield, was there from 1826 with a drapery and hosiery business.[11]

    Her husband Arthur Tolkien’s death in South Africa in 1896 left her and their two young sons without a source of income.[12] At first, they lived with her parents in Birmingham, then moved to Sarehole (now in Hall Green), then a Worcestershire village, later annexed to Birmingham.[13]

    Mabel tutored her two sons, and J. R. R. (or Ronald, as he was known in the family) was a keen pupil.[14] She taught him a great deal of botany, and she awakened in her son the enjoyment of the look and feel of plants. But his favourite lessons were those concerning languages, and his mother taught him the rudiments of Latin very early.[15] She also taught him how to write, and her ornate script influenced her son’s handwriting in his later life.
