Despite its potential benefits, it is not known to what extent the benefits are equally enjoyed by both men and women in the respective host communities. The existing studies focus more on benefit-sharing at the national level and lack gender analysis. Using a cross-sectional design, a study was conducted to establish gendered access to indirect benefits from natural gas extraction. Quantitative data were collected from 373 households and qualitative data through focus group discussions, key informant interviews, and participant observation Findings revealed that about 53% of community members categorized access to indirect benefits to be of high level. The indirect benefits largely cut across investments and support in education, health, water, and employment opportunities. The study concludes that, while investment by Extractive Companies (ECs) has managed to improve health services the shortage of technical staff has remained unsolved. Likewise, while various benefits revealed to exist in education the chronic problem on girls drop<span style="text-decoration: line-through;">s</span> out of school remains to be a challenge.</p> Sarah Esil Mwakyambiki, Anna Nyakaunda Sikira, Fatihiya Ally Massawe ##submission.copyrightStatement## Fri, 10 Jan 2020 12:19:43 +0000 Principal leadership, work spirit, supervision, cultural quality with performance of Hindu vocational school teachers <p style="text-align: justify;">This study aims to obtain an overview of the relationship between the principal's leadership, work spirit, supervision, quality culture and the performance of Hindu Vocational School teachers in Badung Regency.

Just before the national election of 2018, political talk shows were undoubtedly important in shaping public opinion and establishing political discourses. This research took that time period into consideration to understand the role talk show has played in that extremely intimidating political environment. The research aims to identify the commodifying nature of Bangladeshi television talk shows and explores the political talk shows of that time to understand the way talk shows dealt with politics. For this, the research utilizes a qualitative method employing a textual analysis of the talk shows. The research found political talk shows less concerned about constructive discussions and more concerned about lucrative presentations and sponsor demands. Arguments are appreciated more than reaching an agreement. This research concludes finding politics extremely commodified through political talk shows and recommended seeking solutions rather than just addressing problems.</p> Maliha Tabassum, Saiyeed Shahjada Al Kareem ##submission.copyrightStatement## Thu, 06 Feb 2020 08:14:52 +0000 Dynamics of inter-cultural communication at multicultural societies in transmigrant territory <p style="text-align: justify;">This study aims to examine the dynamics of intercultural communication in multicultural societies in transmigrant territory, namely East Tomoni Sub-district, East Luwu Regency, South Sulawesi Province. The design of this study was descriptive qualitative. Based on the results of the study, it was found that intercultural communication experienced a tendency to cause changes in social relations which led to conflict and violence. Two relatively large ethnic communities in the location, namely communities of Toraja ethnic and Bali ethnic as migrants through the transmigration program at the beginning of the meeting showed relatively good communication, despite having different cultural backgrounds. The influx of external influences leads to social changes that pose a change in inter-cultural communication systems and social relations between ethnic communities that trigger conflicts and communal violence. In order to reconcile interethnic cracks, reconciliation was carried out through the revitalization of intercultural communication by involving strategies for the reconstruction of interethnic social relations, the construction of economic relations, the optimization of inter-village cooperation relations, building multicultural awareness, and construction of interpersonal communication as a medium for cross-ethnic cultural studies.</p> I Wayan Astraguna, Ni Putu Listiawati, I Nyoman Wijana ##submission.copyrightStatement## Tue, 18 Feb 2020 03:32:52 +0000 Effect of syair biola katipu education on family concerning dengue hemorrhagic fever prevention knowledge <p style="text-align: justify;">This study is to determine the effect of Katipu violin poetry education on family knowledge about preventing dengue in Raba Dompu, Bima City.
