A Philological Analysis of the Slavic Biblical Expression

Rudavina, Denis Anatolevichb, Garinc, Vadim Viktorovichd, Pikhotae, Oleg Igorevichf, Abgaryang, Natalia Borisovnah, a,b,c,d,e,f,g,hSenior lecturers, The Institute of Linguistics and Intercultural Communication, I.M. Sechenov First Moscow State Medical University,

At present, the Synod Slavic Bible (SSB) is the official text of the Russian Orthodox Church, and the Church Slavonic language is the liturgical style or code of the Russian language and literature. The church’s liturgical Christian texts belong to the oldest texts that appeared in the old Russian version of the Old Slavic or Church Slavonic language. These are famous manuscripts, such as the Ostromir Gospel (1056–1057), the Arkhangelsk Gospel (1092), the Novgorod office menology (1095–1097), “The Miracle Intelligent Psalter” (XI century), and “The Eugene Psalter” (XI century), etc. From the titles of the above texts, it can be concluded that most of them are parts of the Slavic Bible that were read during the divine service. Even though these texts are translations, they can be called the first works of Russian literature, which were written in the Cyrillic alphabet and served as the worldview, ideological and semantic basis of the original works of Russian authors. Despite its importance and antiquity, unfortunately the Bible in Church Slavonic or Synodal Slavic Bible (SSB) still has numerous "dark" sections. Meaning, it is unintelligible to understand places that have not been corrected for objective historical and subjective reasons. It seems that the work on the correction of “dark” places and the philological and historical study of the Synodal Slavic Bible and liturgical texts should be a top priority, not only for the Russian Church, but also for the Russian science. The aim of this paper is to explore the methodology of the “instance” method of correction of the “dark” sections for understanding places, which consists of a detailed analysis of the original text fragment containing the “dark” place for understanding, on a certain fragment. Furthermore, the practical task is to investigate the possibility of translation and explanation of such places. Pages 1 to 11

Thurya Ahmed Khalis Shaalan Al-Shimarya*, Falah Saleh Hussein Al-Jouboryb, aUniversity of Al-Hamdaniya, College of Education, Department of Educational and Psychological Sciences, bUniversity of Tikrit, College of Education for Human Sciences, Department of Educational and Psychological Sciences, Email: a*falahaljobori@gmail.com

The goal of the current research is to identify the effectiveness of computer use in acquiring grammatical concepts among middle second graders and developing their reading skills. The research sample consisted of 70 female second intermediate students who were selected intentionally from Kirkuk city for the year 2018-2019. They were then divided by the researchers into two equal groups: the first experimental group of 38 students studied the subject with the use of a computer, and the second group of 32 students studied the subject in the usual way. In order to achieve the goal of the study, the researchers prepared two tools: the first was a test of grammatical concepts, which was formed by 30 objective paragraphs relating to conformity and marriage. The choice of multi-alternatives and all these paragraphs are divided equally into 10 grammatical concepts to measure the elements of the particular concept. The researchers verified the validity of the test as well as the psychometric characteristics. The second tool was the measure of the trend towards the reading material. In the test’s final version of 29 paragraphs, 14 positive and 15 negative, each paragraph was followed by three alternatives (always - sometimes - rarely). The researchers also verified the accuracy of the scale and the characteristics of the Seiko metric and its stability. The researchers then prepared a number of study plans for both groups: experimental and traditional. The researchers then carried out the research experiment, after which they applied the sample data of the research, which was processed statistically using the T test for two independent samples. It was found that (1) there is a statistically significant difference between the average acquisition of grammatical concepts in the members of the experimental and traditional groups, which was in favour of the experimental group; and (2) that there is a statistically significant difference between the average development of reading skills for female students of the experimental research groups and the traditional towards the reading material, which was for the benefit of the experimental group.Pages 12 to 21

Tartoa*, Gunawan Sridiyatmikob, a,bUniversitas PGRI Yogyakarta, Jalan PGRI I, Sonosewu No. 117, Yogyakarta, 55182, Indonesia, Email : a*tartosentono0@gmail.com

This research aims to identify (1) the professional behaviour and the work performance/work ethic improvement of educator-certified teachers in performing their professional tasks, (2) the change in teachers’ behaviour after obtaining professional certificate, (3) the contribution of age, years of services, certification system, and school category to teachers’ professional behaviour. The professional behaviour of educator-certified teachers is informed by previous behaviour rather than their behaviour after obtaining a professional certificate through a certification program. Most professional educator-certified teachers have performed optimally in terms of professional behaviour, however only a relatively small number of teachers have good habits beyond their certification. Some indicators of teachers' professional behaviour are (1) self-reflection on personal matters and work, (2) work ethic, and (3) professional behaviour. Age and years of service contribute minimally to the professional behaviour of Junior High School (JHS) teachers in the Bantul district. Those older in age and with longer years of service show a decline in the quality of their professional behaviour. This is natural due to decreasing physical capability and increasing age. There is also a tendency that teachers under the portfolio-review certification system more prominently demonstrate professional behaviour than those under teacher professional education and PLPG certification systems. In this study, it is proved that teachers under the portfolio-review certification system have developed a greater degree of basic competence than those under the PLPG system. It is also found that the difference in the school category, i.e. state and private schools, does not contribute to the difference in a teacher’s professional behaviour.Pages 22 to 39

Siti Supenia*, Lydia Erstab, Oktiana Handinic, Yusufd, a,b,c,dSlamet Riyadi University Surakarta Indonesia, Email : a*sitisupeni@unisri.ac.id

This study aims at finding a strategy for developing learning models through Javanese traditional game songs in elementary school students, and the meaning in the lyrics of the songs. The type of research is descriptive qualitative. The techniques used in collecting the data are observation, interview, and documentation. In analysing the data, the researchers used the Interactive Analysis Model. Research findings show that the number of teachers who understand the Javanese cultural values are 62-70 (30% - 40%). Only 40% of them understand the art of educating while playing by stimulating children's motor skills through musical activities. Dancing comprises about 20-30% because not all of the elementary schools have gamelans to improve children's motor skills. The conclusion is that the teaching of character education is compulsory learning material that is integrated in every learning subject. It is also an independent subject which is called Civics subject. Pages 57 to 70

This is a survey research for the identification of social ecology support and survival among youths from various ethnic backgrounds in Malaysia. Social ecology encompasses several aspects including the support from institutions, families, local communities, and online platforms. Survival refers to knowledge, skills, lifelong education, as well as value and creativity. The sample comprised 2,400 respondents selected by a stratified random method from different ethnicities, which covered Malay, Chinese and Indian groups. All respondents are living in 6 zones in an urban area of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The result of the pilot study showed that the reliability level of the overall item was at a high confidence level of 0.834 -0.929 when analysed using Cronbach’s alpha. The finding of this study shows that the level of social ecology support is high. Survival on the other hand is also at a high level. As for stepwise regression analysis, the factor of online support, which relates to enhancing knowledge, gaining new skills, and networking through online applications, has aided youth in improving the longevity of their urban life. This research also reveals that support primarily in the form of online platforms should be given special attention at various stages in shaping the youths. This is compatible with global generations especially in urban areas. Pages 71 to 82

Improving teacher quality is crucial in education and remains a challenge in Indonesia. These challenges require teachers to master concepts, technologies, and pedagogics, including the Nature of Science (NoS) for science preservice teachers. While the facts show that an understanding of the NoS is a given in certain subjects, these subjects do not emphasise mastery of the content and its method of teaching. Most students still have difficulty connecting natural phenomena and science, and face challenges in determining the appropriate form of learning technology to represent the object of science being studied. The understanding of NoS of prospective natural science teacher students is still wrong. Thus, it is important to design an educational program for the professional development of teachers. The question is why is the design of the educational program for the professional development of teachers with TPASK-C important? What are the characteristics of the educational program for the professional development of teachers with TPASK-C based on the views of experts and the lecturers?Pages 83 to 93

Today’s digital age trequires teachers to create a generation that is able to think ahead. Therefore, teachers need to be prepared by strengthening their digital pedagogical competencies so that they are able to design or implement information technology-based learning, while still exploring the values of local wisdom, implementing teaching strategies so that students master 21st century skills like critical, creative, and innovative thinking. Cellular devices are one of the tools that can be used for mathematics mobile learning. Mathematics mobile learning needs to be enacted in digital pedagogy, so that students become active partners in finding and developing their own mathematical knowledge. In doing so, mathematical topics are linked with the real world and integrated with mobile and non-mobile technology. Learning activities would also provide opportunities to connect with fellow students during the learning process through conversation and discussion, and encourage collaboration activities between students and teachers to create new knowledge.

Shakila Che Dahalana*, Abdul Razaq Ahmadb, Mohd Mahzan Awangc, a,b,cFaculty of Education, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia, Malaysia, Email: a*shakila1212ukm@gmail.com

The 21st century teaching history module (21-CTHM) can support  student transformation and learning, and help develop their potential effectively. Secondary schools in Malaysia are still using conventional approaches in teaching and learning history. As a result, students are not interested in studying history due to their poor understanding of it. Thus, this research uses quasi experiment to test and understand the effectiveness of 21-CTHM in improving achievement. The achievement of study refers to Higher Order Thinking Skills in learning history among the students.  The researcher carried out a study on the history subject at four secondary school under the Ministry of Education. The researcher involved 146 students as a sample by purposive and matching sampling. A total of 73 students were chosen as the treatment group and the rest acted as the control group for 14 weeks. The findings show the achievement of students' high order content knowledge. Test questions were also conducted to investigate students' higher-order knowledge, which involved three levels, namely application, analysis and evaluation. The results of the study using multiple ANOVA analysis showed that there were significant differences in application, analysis and evaluation in the control and treatment groups for the pre and post-test. The treatment group using the 21-CTHM achieved greater results in high order thinking skills than the control group, who used the conventional approach in learning history. The implication of this study shows activity and interaction among the members and teachers, Creative, innovative learning using advanced technology in 21-CTHM proves that student achievement increases not only academically, but also in terms of soft skills among the students.

Dwiyono Hari Utomoa, aPhD Associate Professor, Geography Education Departement, Faculty of Social Sciences, Universitas Negeri Malang, East Java, Indonesia, Email: adwiyono.hari.fis@um.ac.id

Geographic studies that examine the phenomenon of the geosphere provides opportunities for learning in the field. Geography has provided material objects to undergo natural geomorphic processes. Weathering is one of the geomorphic processes caused by the climate. Climate engenders weathering processes, dissolution, and the removal of material in vertical and horizontal effects on soil properties. Students are directed by research procedures based on the hypothesis that has been formulated to establish scientific thinking skills. This research method uses action research by the Kolb cycle through steps, concrete experience, reflective observation, abstract conceptualization, and active experimentation. The number of students is as many as 40. Student activity starts from the engagement proposal, hypothesis formulation, data collection, discussion, and reporting. Acquisition of scientific thinking skills are exhibited using a test. Results can be described at every step with an analysis using paired t-test between pre-test and post-test. The concrete experience involves students making the determination of point coordinates on a map where Vertisol soil types are identified in the field using GPS. Observation of soil properties as climate effects are confirmed with the hypothesis. Students reflect on the observations and find arguments based on previous knowledge. In relation to abstract conceptualization, students discuss findings supported by literature and journals. Active experimentation involves the scientific thinking skills of students in experimentation experiences regarding the new phenomenon of climate effect on the soil properties. Analysis using paired t-test between pre-test and post-test showed significance at the level of 0.00. Scientific thinking skills can be established by the research-based outdoor study. This means that scientific thinking skills can be improved through a research-based outdoor study in climosequent. Pages 121 to 138

Ariya Pongsiria, Somsak Srisontisukb, Pakdee Phosingc, a,bFaculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, Khon Kaen University, Thailand, cFaculty of Political Science and Public Administration, Rajabhat Mahasarakham University, Thailand, Email: aariya.pongsiri@gmail.com,  bsomsri4@kku.ac.th,  celiti_pana@hotmail.com

This study aimed to propose the joint management of CIQ on border trade and cross-border trade between Thailand and Laos in the northeast of Thailand. Qualitative research was used with in-depth interviews of fifty-six key informants involved with the joint management of CIQ in border trade and cross-border trade between Thailand and Laos in the northeast of Thailand. The research found that the current approaches were both formal and informal. Meetings or forms of cooperation based on institutional structures were not established for joint border management with relevant agencies. Therefore, it could be concluded that the characteristics of CIQ's joint border management in the development of border trade and cross-border trade between Thailand and Laos, as shown in the study, could drive CIQ's collaboration to work efficiently in border trade and cross-border trade between Thailand and Laos in the northeast of Thailand. Common border management features include establishing the Common Control Area (CCA), improving the National Single Window (NSW) system, driving CIQ units as facilitators, developing the service and work process redesign clearly, and creating clear driving mechanisms. The researcher suggested that the establishment of multi-functional governmental levels and units would be an important solution for collaborative policy management.Pages 175 to 194

Social and economic changes resulting from globalisation has led to the unlimited creation of data. This caused a flow of new information and technology threatening to replace original knowledge. This undoubtedly affects the inheritance of local wisdom, which is a process of transferring knowledge and experiences as well as exchanging ways of life from one generation to another. This causes the gradual loss of much local wisdom. This topic is studied through a literature review of thirty-six related articles on the cultural inheritance of local Thai wisdom and the sample group of 22 skilled craftsmanship, who are entrepreneurs on intellectual products. This is done in order to identify the important factors in the local wisdom inheritance process. Statistics and data comparisons were conducted with one sample T-test. The results demonstrate that four factors related to the sample group with a statistical significance of 0.01 were ritual-belief, integrated participation of every sector, written record of knowledge, and learning centres. In addition, seven factors related to the sample group had statistical significance of 0.05, namely family knowledge transmission, knowledge demonstration, local curriculum, teachers of wisdom, association/working group, information publication, and practice. All of the factors were categorised under 4Ms and 1I (Motive, Morale, Man, Method, and Institution) and a model of the local wisdom inheritance process was established. The main principles driving the model consisted of three sectors, which were senders, the inheritance process, and receivers. Pages 195 to 215

Nanrapat Chaiakaraphonga, Punchada Sirivunnaboodb, a,bFaculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, Mahidol University, Thailand, Email: ananrapat.c@gmail.com,  bpunchada.sir@mahidol.ac.th

Green criminology is an approach used for proving and resolving various environmental crimes. This article aims to present how green criminology can be applied to explain the wildlife trafficking phenomenon in Thailand. In this research, a documentary study was employed, and in-depth interviews were conducted with 58 key informants who had been involved in the prevention and suppression of wildlife trafficking. The findings revealed that wildlife trafficking in Thailand had produced negative impacts in three dimensions: (1) ‘impacts on humans and society’ by which the way of living for Thai people has changed due to relocation for food, the prevalence of wildlife diseases, insecurity in their lives created by crime  related to wildlife trafficking, loss of taxes collected from the legal wildlife trade and a ruined image and reputation in the eyes of the CITES members; (2) ‘impacts on wildlife’ by which Thai wild animals were constantly hunted, injured, threatened and infected by foreign wildlife diseases, and; (3) ‘impacts on environment and ecosystems’ by which Thai ecosystems where wild animals had been hunted, killed and destroyed for wildlife trafficking lost their balance, affecting neighbouring ecosystems and other ecosystems as well. Therefore, humans and society, wildlife, and the environment and ecosystems are all victims of the wildlife trafficking happening in Thailand, based on the concept of green criminology.

The Meaning of Corporate Social Responsibility as a Legal Obligation in Limited Company Law: An Indonesian Case Study

Dulmana*, Abdul Rachmad Budionob, Iwan Permadic, Achmad Syaufid, a,b,cFaculty of Law, Brawijaya University, Indonesia, dFaculty of Law, Lambung Mangkurat University, Indonesia, Email: a*dulman.fhub@gmail.com

The purpose of this study is to analyse and determine the meaning of corporate social responsibility as a legal obligation to the company according to Article 74 of Law No. 40 of 2007 concerning Limited Liability Companies (UUPT). This type of legal research is doctrinal research using the short term (statute and pro) and short concept (conceptual and pro). From the results of the research, it can be found that philosophically the existence of corporate social responsibility (CSR) as stipulated in Article 74 paragraph (1) of Law Number 40 the Year 2007 concerning Limited Liability Companies. This is very closely related to the goals and functions of the Indonesian state in a form that is expressly stated in paragraph IV of the Preamble of the 1945 Constitution of the Republic of Indonesia, one of which is to advance public welfare. All the Indonesian Nation is guided by Pancasila as the Nation's Life View. The Indonesian people will not be able to achieve the goals they have dreamed of without the noble values that they uphold as a way of life, namely Pancasila. In this case, the implementation of CSR obligations is carried out to realise the objectives and functions of the state under Pancasila. Socially, the existence of CSR is a legal responsibility that is based on the values of benefits that will be accepted by the community. CSR can be used as a means to empower the poor. Even the implementation of CSR to the community through the utilisation of potential social capital can be used as an alternative to empowering the poor in Indonesia. The concept of CSR as referred to in Article 74 is the implementation in Article 33 paragraph (4) of the 1945 Constitution. Normalising CSR in Article 74 paragraph (1) of the PT Law which is then strengthened by Decision of the Constitutional Court No. 53/PUU-VI/2008 is a legal obligation accompanied by sanctions. Normalising CSR as a legal obligation accompanied by sanctions for violators is intended not only to regulate (aanvullend recht) but rather to force (dwingend rechr) to give more power to regulate, tie up, and force the responsibility of the company than the original responsibility (non-legal responsibility ) becomes a liability.

The occurrence of social conflicts in the application of policies is not new. Conflicts usually start from a disagreement between the community and the government related to the birth of a new policy, which tends to be detrimental to small communities. Although the conflicts are in the regular stage in the form of verbal and written protests, they still have an impact on the stability of human security where the conflict occurred. Anticipatory steps must be taken so that the existing conflict does not enlarge and harm more people. The revitalisation agenda for the upstream Citarum watershed area in Tarumajaya Village, Kertasari Subdistrict is a form of government policy in dealing with the Citarum problem. However, the revitalisation plan cannot be effectively carried out because some community groups are protesting the policy as it is considered to be detrimental to the local community, especially economically. The conflict began with the issue of land ownership by shifting the status of the forest to community-owned plantations, which the government considered to violate the rules. Until now, the agreement offered by the public has not received a definite answer from the government, especially the compensation issue that was promised. Pages 553 to 567

Strategies for Private Hospital Business with Risk Diversification in the Innovation Era

Suppanunta Rompraserta, aFaculty of Economics, Srinakharinwirot University, Bangkok, Thailand, Email: asuppanunta@g.swu.ac.th

This research aims to research strategies on planning for private hospital business. It uses the revenue structure data of hospital public companies limited; the inpatient versus outpatient percentage of total revenue, Thai versus International patient percentage of total revenue combined, company profile and economic factors. The analysis covers the time period from 2011 to 2018 via SWOT, and 2015 to 2018 for the financial analysis conducted. SWOT shows “strengths” as modern medical technology and good networks; “weaknesses” as a small number of full-time doctors compared to temporary doctors; “opportunities” as number of patients’ high earnings, patient referral system via hub and spoken model; and “threats” as economic fluctuations and operational and financial risks. The financial analysis finds basic stock valuation increases, price-to-earnings ratio decreases, price-to-book value per share decreases, with those reflecting profit mirroring the national income of Thailand. Moreover, the trend expresses a gradual increase in range of 2.5-4.0 percent. This is driven by the recovery of domestic spending and continued growth of the tourism sector, together with stimulus support from the Thai government and their push for more concrete investment projects, while the Monetary Policy Committee maintains policy rate until the end of following year from slow economic growth. To compete, hospital businesses have to improve and develop in medical services including provision of modern medical equipment to expand their customer base. Furthermore, to spread risk from revenue generation and profits, organisations should increase technological operational support to reduce costs and maintain quality of service. Therefore, private hospital business entrepreneurs should adjust their business strategies by looking for new sources of income such as non-hospital businesses, which are experiencing growth in this period, such as nursing homes and pharmacies, including business cooperation with health care, or even collaborating with food manufacturers for food nutrition for elderly patients.

This research aims to propose a model for improving the quality of multidisciplinary health areas, creating a seamless health service system. The model development consisted of four processes, namely, a study of relevant data and documents, in-depth interviews, group discussions and professional networking teams. This research led to a new service system design for assessing the appropriateness of models used by experts or practitioners in their public health profession. The data were analysed both quantitatively and qualitatively. The results show the new model of health service system development, based on the 3 C Acts: 3 I Support model, which includes (the 3 C Acts) Commitment Approach, Collaborative Care for the Care System, Care System, and, (the 3 I Support) Integration, Information to Improve, Innovation and Continuing Care, attains the best results including efficiency, quality and security to target. The new model was brought to the trial area, and the conclusion from the new health service system development showed improvement of care for patients with cardiovascular disease. It is therefore suggested to develop: more coaching systems, the use of an information program, rehabilitation services after surgery and a cardiovascular disease preparation course in the professional field, so as to increase the capacity of the network to be more effective.

The development of micro small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) has a significant role in the economic growth of the community. It does not only play a role in economic growth and employment but also plays a role in the distribution of democratic-based economic development results. This research was conducted to explore how much effort the development of batik business in areas that have no concern for this intangible cultural heritage. The sample required 200 customers using traditional written batik. The model used in this study is the causality model to test the proposed hypothesis. The research method uses the SEM (Structural Equation Model) model that analyses the effect of indicator variables with latent variables, the effect of one latent variable with another. The results of research in the development of traditional batik businesses indicate that there are inhibiting factors like the Government, especially the trade and Cooperatives of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) in providing coaching and assistance, anticipating the fewer batik workers.

The industrial revolution 4.0 requires government organisations to innovate by leaving the industrial era, with an emphasis on efficiency through bureaucracy towards the information age. Agile methodology is the only method used by government and private organisations to keep up with changes in the market environment. Bureaucracy must turn agile. However, evidence shows that community organisations cannot evolve to match technological change. Organisational structure and organisational culture is one of the reasons why community organisations in Indonesia find it difficult to become agile. The main objective of this research is to build an agile bureaucracy model and to analyse and synthesise literature on agile bureaucracy. Furthermore, it is to understand stakeholders associated with bureaucratic and hierarchical societies that are useful for agile development. The results of the matching pattern and time series techniques show this. The research method used is a qualitative method. Data is collected through interviews with group discussion techniques and the documentation of informants directly involved in carrying out these activities. The process of data analysis is data reduction, data presentation, and complete conclusions. The results of the research show that the implementation of bureaucracy in an agile manner is difficult. This is because a bureaucracy is a hierarchical organisation that is regulated by its authority and law. The agile bureaucratic collaborative network, conducted by the government to make the Governor's Team for the Acceleration of Development (TGUPP) does not support agile efficiency improvements. TGUPP still supports political discussion, but not when creating collaboration with other stakeholders. Pages 692 to 714
