Right To Health Guarantee For Household Workerst
      Artika Sophia Maharani, Wiwik Afifah, Tomy Michael

Abstract: Lots of Indonesian citizens choose to work as domestic workers due to various factors. In doing their job, many domestic workers work long hours and some don’t. It’s possible for domestic workers to experience health problems. In Indonesia, there are many employers who don’t provide health insurance to domestic workers, resulting in them having to pay for medical treatment themselves without being reimbursed by their employers. Health insurance is one of the rights of domestic workers that they should get. The right to health of domestic workers is not regulated in Law Number 13 of 2003 because domestic workers are considered not to be formal workers but informal workers. From these problems, two problem formulations were drawn, namely first, what is the urgency of regulating health rights for domestic workers.

Abstract: The establishment of universities was conceived to be a unified single institution that will have one arm of authority taking care and control of the entire programs of each university. This arrangement has been applied in other administrative directorates except that of the student affairs. Whereas vice-chancellors as heads of universities supported by deans of faculties, directors and heads of departments control student affairs of both the undergraduate and postgraduate students, the dean of the students’ affairs is restricted to the welfare of undergraduates, while the dean postgraduate (PG) school handles postgraduate students.

Abstract: The area of fault detection is becoming more interesting since there have been many unique designs to detect or even compensate the faults, either from sensor or actuator. This paper applies the hydraulic system with interconnected tanks by implementing a leakage on one of the three tanks. The mathematical model along with the details of stability properties are highly discussed in this paper by imposing the Lyapunov and boundedness stability. The theory of fault detection with certain threshold after the occurrence of the fault corresponding to the state estimation error is mathematically presented ended by simulation. Moreover, the system compares the effectiveness of the proposed observer using Luenberger observer, adaptivescaling Kalman and consensus filtering.


Abstract: In Indonesia, the economic value of cocoa farmers is still low so that the impact on the low income of farmers. The purpose of this research is to design an alternative to cocoa farmer income improvement solution by referring to One Village One Product (OVOP) program implementation of cocoa processing industry involving farmers as financiers and factory owners. The research began with a study of literature and surveys on cocoa and its process of utilization. Then was proceed with identifying the key factors needed to formulate an alternative framework of factory-building solutions that benefit farmers. Approach method applied is descriptive statistical. The number of samples of expert respondents is 55 people and respondents of cocoa farmers are 75 people. The results of this study were found a conceptual framework that integrates elements of cocoa farmers, cooperative institutions, cocoa factories, marketing systems and banks.

Abstract: In this paper, the oil-paper insulation system of the power transformer is analyzed in the frequency domain. Different factors that influence the dielectric insulation of oil-paper, such as the temperature, moisture in cellulose, conductivity, and oil aging, are described. The analysis for the dielectric response is carried out by analyzing the dissipation factors and the complex capacitance through the Frequency Domain Spectroscopy (FDS) method. This tool analyzes the dielectric responses of the oil-paper insulation system, by measuring a series of dissipation factors at different frequencies, typically distributed over the range of 0.001 Hz to 1000 Hz. The result of the experiments shows that the temperatures, moisture in cellulose, conductivity, and oil aging have a significant influence, in the low-frequency range than in the high-frequency range.

Abstract: This study review focused on indicating wastewater treatment technologies used in Kenya and determine the most feasible and effective treatment method that can be applied in slum areas. This systematic literature review showed that the most commonly used treatment method in Kenya is the use of single or combined constructed wetland, stabilization ponds coupled with constructed wetland, stabilization pond with aerated lagoons, and also conventional wastewater treatment systems. However, the conventional method is costly and requires high implementation, maintenance and operation. Yet, most of the final effluents of the treatment system do not meet the National Environmental Management Authority (NEMA) standards hence posing a threat to the environment and human life. Found that most of the wastewater treatment plants were not effective in removing the nutrients (phosphorus and nitrogen) to the required standards.

Abstract: Introduction: Helicopter parenting (HP) refers to a distinct type of perceived parenting. It is developmentally inappropriate levels of parent involvement and control in their children’s lives, which is often observable through their advice, direction, and help with problem. They even make decisions for their children and personally invest in their children’s goals. Today’s adolescents are expected to make decisions pertaining to their health related behaviour and career related choices. Decision making refers to the capability of developing reliable level of competence to foresee the consequences of alternatives. It is the fourth phase of cognitive development which is normally reached during adolescence, and is synonymous with abstract thinking, logical reasoning and problem-solving skills. Helicopter parenting has been shown to have negative outcomes in emerging adults but so far it has not been investigated in adolescents in India.

Abstract: There is common preservation that the term "metaphysical" is utilized to portray a gathering of seventeenth-century English artists, who wrote in a specific way affected by, or in response to, works by John Donne. The chose not many related as such are known as the metaphysical artists, and their works marked as "metaphysical poetry". Precisely what the term metaphysical refers to, or what does it define this aspect requires some explanation. As indicated by the Cambridge Dictionary, metaphysical poetry identifies with the piece of theory that is tied in with getting presence and information"; while theory then again, is "the affective reason in viewing things with the aspect of the present reality and presence. Subsequently, by suggestion, however, till this day there is no fully effective definition of metaphysical poetry, as it requires a variety of characteristics which will be presented in this paper along with the brief history behind the metaphysical poets and inspirations.

Abstract: The aim of this study is to analyse the level and explanatory factors of the technical efficiency of independent oil palm producers in the Sanaga-Maritime. To achieve this objective, we used the stochastic production frontier with embedded inefficiency effects, which we applied to primary data from a survey that covered the period from June 2018 to July 2019. The results lead to the conclusion that 81.6% of the production inefficiency is explained by the producers themselves and only 18.4% of this inefficiency is related to random factors. This inefficiency of independent producers is mainly related to off-farm income and their level of education.

Abstract: While the mobile phone has revolutionized some sectors of the economy such as banking, its impact in agriculture in Zimbabwe is yet to be established. For farmers to adapt to the fast-changing global environment and remain competitive and relevant, they must integrate ICTs in their farming activities. The study was carried out on farmers in Mushandike Irrigation Scheme in Masvingo district in Zimbabwe. Because of the farmers’ long stay in commercial farming activities, they were clearly aware of their information requirements in farming. Questionnaires were distributed to 54 farmers and interviews were conducted with 10 farmers from the Irrigation Scheme. The level of use of mobile phone applications was found to be very poor. The extension worker was seen as the main source of information when it comes to dealing with traditional issues such as pests and crop diseases. Small scale farmers were not benefitting from mobile applications.

Abstract: Regression analysis is the most frequently used statistical tool or treatment in Education and Social Sciences, especially when the conceptual framework is on causes and effects. As seen in many theses and dissertations results, regression analysis has been abused in the sense that the basic assumptions are not justified. Moreover, results show unrealistic outcomes and even to a point where no sense of reality has been arrived, where the authors and advisers have not realized. Some of these illustrations with anonymity are presented in this paper.

Abstract: Globally there is an energy disparity that emanates from supply shortages of clean energy that is adequate to the growing population. Clean energy is vital for poverty eradication through social-economic development in a country. Nepal has not been an exemption in an energy crisis, despite the potential for generating, 2,100 MW of solar power and 3000 MW wind power which are eco-friendly and renewable sources of energy. Nepal, as a country, is a less developed economy, with more than 80% of the population residing in rural areas. This rural population depends on non-renewable energy sources, like traditional stoves and fuel woods, which are detrimental to the environment. Besides, fossil fuels in the country are imported, creating an economic burden on the country. Nepal has the potential to utilize solar energy as a sustainable energy source. However, this potential requires mitigation of anticipated challenges from the supply side. This research project will seek to develop recommendations for viable solar energy supply technologies by assessing and identifying possible limitations in the energy supply side; this includes analysis of solar concentrations technologies that affect the solar power output and reliability. The final report will be instrumental in developing solar thermal concentrations systems that are effective, efficient and reliable.

Abstract: One of the representatives of Turkic literature in India, Kamran Mirza Babur’s second son, a talented poet, is a highly talented man who deservedly continued the traditions of his father Babur. This article provides a comparative analysis of the poetic works of Zahiriddin Muhammad Babur and his second son, Kamran Mirza, published in Uzbek, including ghazals, rubais, and fards. The analysis addresses not only the theoretical rules inherent in the work of these two poets, but also inherent in the classical poetry of the East. Comparing the literary expressions created by the father and son artists, it is shown by the examples that each artist enriched the literary images in the Eastern classical literature both in form and content, and gave a number of peculiarities to the traditional images. It is also proved that Kamran Mirza, like Babur and other oriental classical poets, wrote in the most vivid weights of the Turkic dream and was able to create new, beautiful expressions of content based on traditional images in oriental poetry.

Abstract: Through testimonies born from situations of violent conflicts, survivors are able to narrate, and bear witness to traumatic experiences, albeit subjectively. The subjectivity characterizing such narrations implies a process of editing and selecting, voicing certain aspects of the events and silencing other aspects. Although silence in speech implies absence of voice and therefore no communication, this paper maintains that narrativization of trauma is possible even in silence. Informed by textual data, the paper examines the place of silence in narrativizing trauma, exploring not only the binary opposition of voicing and silence, but also the meaning of the ‘unspoken’ during the narrativization of traumatic events. The paper exposes the multifaceted nature of silence in Rwandan post-genocide testimonial literature as depicted in Hanna Jensen’s “Over a Thousand Hills I Walk with You”, Immaculee Illibagiza’s “Left to Tell: Discovering God Amidst the Rwandan Genocide” and Jean Hatzfeld’s “Machete Season: Killers in Rwanda Speak.”
