In the field of ceramic tea set design, researchers have been seeking innovations to improve the artistry and practicality of their products. In recent years, the concept of hybrid components has been introduced into the design of ceramic tea sets, a method that creates unique tea set pieces by fusing components of different materials, shapes, and textures. The purpose of this study is to investigate the application of hybrid components in the creation of ceramic tea set art design. By fusing components of different materials, shapes, and textures, this study explores the fusion of traditional ceramic craftsmanship with modern design concepts, and how to create tea sets that are both artistic and practical based on traditional tea sets through the introduction of modern materials and craftsmanship. It explores the creative inspirations and aesthetic pursuits of artists and designers in the design of mixed-component tea sets and analyses the artistic expressions of different design styles. This paper analyses in depth the application direction and creation points of mixed components in the creation of ceramic tea set art design through qualitative research methods. Pages 1 to 17

An exploratory approach to enhancing the social responsibility and publicness of higher education institutions: Suggestions for strengthening the publicness of Korean Universities

Yong-Lyun Kim, Ph.D. Hankuk University of Foreign Studies, Seoul Korea, kim0904@hufs.ac.kr

The aim of the study is to provide recommendations for bolstering the social responsibility and publicness of higher education institutions in Korea. This study seeks for the concept of publicness in higher education into the three types: the publicness of universities through official and open management; the publicness of universities as public goods through open accessibility; the publicness of universities through contribution to the public interest. In view of the conceptual aspects of higher education pertaining to public interest, such as future society, regional balance, equal opportunity, and its realistic aspect of competitiveness, a more nuanced strategic approach is essential for restructuring the higher education system. In this context, distinct strategies and methods for the restructuring of national and public universities, private universities, and networked universities should be clearly defined, enabling targeted decision-making and focused implementation.

Queer Theory and Ageism: Embracing Fluidity and Non-Conformity for an Inclusive Society

Pongmanut Deeod, Faculty of Social Sciences, Mahamakut Buddhist University, Thailand, Pongmanut.dee@gmail.com

This article explores the potential of using Queer theory as a framework to combat bias against ageism. Queer theory challenges rigid categorizations and binary thinking, emphasizing the fluidity and non-conformity of identities. Similarly, ageism operates on fixed age categories and stereotypes, limiting the potential and contributions of older individuals. By adopting a Queer lens, we can challenge age-based biases, promote inclusivity, and foster a society that values individuals of all ages. This essay highlights the connections between Queer theory and ageism, examines the shared principles of non-conformity, fluidity, and intersectionality, and explores practical applications of Queer theory to reduce ageism. The goal is to create a more inclusive and equitable society that recognizes the diverse experiences and contributions of individuals across the entire lifespan. Pages 72 to 89

The Inconsistencies in Procedural Law Regarding the Implementation of Collective Agreements in Termination of Employment in Indonesia

1Salahuddin Gaffar, 2Hamdan Zoelva, 3Agus Mulya Karsona, 4Farid Wajdi & 5Heru Widodo, 1,2 & 5 Faculty of Law, Universitas Islam Asyafiyah, Jakarta Indonesia, 3Faculty of Law, Universitas of Padjajaran, Bandung, Indonesia, 4 Faculty of Law, Universitas Muhammadiyah Sumatera Utara, Medan-Indonesia, Corresponding Author Email: salgafar.123@gmail.com

Conflicts over termination of employment are one of the issues that frequently occur in work relations. The issuance of Law Number 2 of 2004 provides an alternative to dispute resolution throughout court (non-litigation) channels. In this law, dispute resolution must be resolved using deliberation to reach a consensus through bipartite negotiations. If a deal is reached, it is detailed in a legally-binding collective agreement that applies to both parties. But in reality, collective agreements are frequently rejected, and carrying them out is a difficult task. The aim of this study is to gain a general understanding of the issues and potential remedies relating to inconsistent procedural law regarding the use of collective agreements in terminating employment in Indonesia. To conduct the research, a normative juridical research method was used. This article concludes that the court continues to accept claims against employment termination cases that have been resolved through cooperative agreements and have also obtained proof of registration certificates, which causes the procedural rule regarding the performance of collective contracts in employment termination to be inconsistent. Then, neither party is acting in good faith to implement the established collective bargaining agreement. Besides, it is challenging to decide on the execution of a cooperative agreement from the court. Therefore, a new procedural law concept is needed to guarantee the implementation of collective agreements that can provide legal certainty and protection of rights for the parties.

Aditya Budiarsa4 . 1,2,3Lecturers in the Department of Fisheries Socioeconomics, Faculty of Fisheries and Marine Sciences, Mulawarman University, 4Department of marine Scince, Faculty of Fisheries and Marine Sciences, Mulawarman University.  email: 1h.helminuddin@fpik.unmul.ac.id & 2syafril.riona@gmail.com & 3qoriasa@yahoo.com & aditya_budiarsa@fpik.unmul.ac.id

This study aimed to conduct a financial feasibility analysis of the soft-shell crab cultivation business using both discounted and non-discounted investment criteria, assess its sensitivity to changes, and provide an overview of the practical challenges faced by soft-shell crab cultivators. The study was carried out from September 2021 to April 2022 in Tarakan, North Kalimantan. The total number of eligible population members, consisting of three soft-shell crab farmers, were chosen as respondents or samples using the census method. The research results reveal the following financial feasibility indicators for soft-shell crab cultivation: Net Present Value (NPV) = 4,234,818,810 IDR, Internal Rate of Return (IRR) = 46%, Net Benefit Cost Ratio (Net B/C Ratio) = 3.61, and Payback Period (PbP) = 2.77 years (equivalent to 33.27 months). These findings collectively indicate that soft-shell crab cultivation is financially viable and profitable. Furthermore, the sensitivity analysis demonstrates that the soft-shell crab cultivation business is highly responsive to changes in economic conditions. To maintain profitability, it is crucial to ensure that production and revenue declines remain below the minimum threshold, while cost increases stay within the maximum threshold. The challenges encountered by soft-shell crab cultivators in Tarakan include reduced crab catches, low-quality mangrove crab seedlings, weather-related factors, and issues related to feeding.
