In Cuba there are more than 10,000 installations that take advantage of renewable sources using different technologies, these are of small format; but also there are conditions of a renewable potential distributed throughout the national territory, which allows us to continue introducing these practices in a larger scale and format. The work deals, with the possibilities offered by the use of the potential of the renewable energy source as a measure of economic savings and reduction of disaster risks, exposing the need to link the facilities that take advantage of these resources, with the stability of the energy services for the confrontation of natural disasters and for exceptional situations, in addition to the rescue of certain energetic cultural traditions, which can help in the formation of social habits of efficiency and austerity in consumption, propitiating the reduction of the associated environmental impacts and the promulgation of a legal norm that protects and orders the penetration of renewable sources in the national energy matrix.</p> 2019-05-09T13:07:58+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://sciencescholar.us/journal/index.php/ijssh/article/view/282 Tri hita karana and sad kertih values in Belimbing rural tourism development 2019-10-21T14:20:13+00:00 Gede Ginaya ginaya@pnb.ac.id Ni Made Sudarmini madesudarmini@pnb.ac.id I.A.

In fact, some of the achievements that have been nominated to Bali are because of the unity of the implementation of <em>Tri Hita Karana</em> (THK) and <em>Sad Kertih</em> (SK) values as local wisdom in maintaining Balinese balance. However, the lack of consistency of tourism actors in supporting cultural tourism, especially in maintaining and increasing appreciation of Balinese culture can make Bali gradually will be left by tourists. Therefore, the hegemonic capitalist that commodify Bali for tourism-business interests needs to be countered for a reinvention of the loss of Bali.&nbsp;&nbsp; This study aims at investigating the revitalization of THK and SK values in the development of Belimbing tourist village.

Data were obtained from Nias-speaking informants living in Laowöwaga, one of the villages in the district of East Lahewa in the reference of North Nias. The results of the analysis show that causatives in the language of Nias are constructed through morpholexical operation involving affixes and words/pre-categrorials. More specifically, some causatives are formed by attaching prefix {fe-} or its allomorph {f-} to an intransitive verb. Some are formed by morpholexical operation involving suffix {-ö} and an adjective or suffix {-gö} and a pre-categorial.&nbsp; Both morpholexical operations involving prefix and those involving suffix and the base introduce direct causers. Some causatives are formed by attaching confix {fa-...-ö} to a transitive verb as the base.

In construction service companies, the cost determining is important. It will affect the value of the tender proposal submitted to get the job. CV. RG is a construction service company provides services in the civil and building fields. CV. RG, of course, has often participated in tenders. The problem is the company often suffer losses. The company’s success rate is still relatively low. The company participates in a tender, costs, and efforts arise in preparing the tender. In conducting costing, there are at least two aspects must be considered. It is namely the cost component and cost magnitude. This study uses a phenomenological approach to gain an understanding of decision holders about a reality based on experience. The interpretative phenomenology method is suitable to be used due to the researcher wants to reveal and understand how the decision holders. CV. RG means cost component and cost magnitude is in the process of price-determining the tender proposal. The results of the research analysis showed that in determining the cost component. The informant felt complicated due to the situation at hand. The dilemma feelings also accompanied the informants in determining the cost magnitude of the tender proposal. The meaning of this informant can also be explained because of motives and in order to motives that underlie the informant actions.</p> 2019-08-27T15:32:47+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://sciencescholar.us/journal/index.php/ijssh/article/view/327 Errors of entrepreneur in Nigeria: the blue ocean strategy as panacea 2019-10-21T14:19:56+00:00 Kifordu A.

The paper identified two objectives; to determine the effect of planning error on entrepreneurs’ success in Nigeria and the effect of Blue Ocean Strategy on the Success of Entrepreneurs in Nigeria. Statistically, two research questions and hypotheses were formulated. The descriptive statistics of simple frequency count and simple percentage were used for description and analysis.</p> 2019-08-29T15:38:19+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://sciencescholar.us/journal/index.php/ijssh/article/view/331 Effect of KWL learning method (know-want-learn) and self-assessment on student learning independence vocational high school 2019-10-21T14:19:55+00:00 Ni Ketut Widiartini ketut.widiartini@undiksha.ac.id I Gede Sudirtha gede.sudirtha@undiksha.ac.id <p style="text-align: justify;">The study aims at determining the effect of know-want-learn learning method and self-assessment of learning independence.

The study population was XI grade students of all majors in Singaraja vocational middle secondary school, totaling 282 people. The sample was taken using random sampling, namely students of product service, fashion and hospitality on 124 people. Research data of learning independence scores were collected using a questionnaire. Data were analyzed using two-way analysis of variance. The analysis results showed that (a) towards the students who were given self-assessment. The learning independence of students who take learning with the KWL method were higher than students who take learning with conventional methods, (b) towards the students who were given peer assessment, learning independence of students who take learning the KWL method was no different from students who take learning with conventional methods, and (c) there was an effect of the interaction between the KWL learning method and self assessment on learning independence.</p> 2019-08-30T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://sciencescholar.us/journal/index.php/ijssh/article/view/332 Language phenomena of sago in irrires language 2019-10-21T14:19:54+00:00 Yafet Syufi yafet.syufi@gmail.com Made Budiarsa made_budiarsa@yahoo.com I Wayan Simpen wyn_simpen@unud.ac.id Made Sri Satyawati srisatyawati@gmail.com <p style="text-align: justify;">The current research was a descriptive study which aimed at exploring Irrires language in West Papua, Indonesia.

To gain data, the methods of recording, observation, and interview were applied. Data analysis was conducted with three stages of analysis, namely the stage of data collection, the stage of data verification, and the stage of drawing conclusions. The results showed that the application of the principle of cooperation was influenced by the context in the teaching and learning process, and was dominated by formal situations. In the principle of cooperation, the teacher and student are dominated by quantity maxim, quality maxim, relevance maxim, and manner maxim. It is concluded that by applying the principle of cooperation, especially in Indonesian learning, an atmosphere of effective and efficient teaching and learning will be built.</p> 2019-08-31T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement##
