This standard is part of an effort to encourage the transformation of the role of the orphanage and to position the institutions as alternatives in the childcare continuum for those who cannot be cared for in the main family, extended family, relatives, or substitute families. In line with this, the LKSA must function as a service center for children and their families. This is an effort to implement care and protection for children who are outside of family care and is a form of implementation of national legislation, both Law Number 4 of 1979 concerning Child Welfare and Law Number 23 of 2002 concerning Child Protection, which governed the importance of parenting by parents and families; but this has not been fully fulfilled at the level of implementation. Data collection in this study is qualitative data and quantitative data. Data sources used are primary data sources and secondary data sources. The data collection technique used are observation method, documentation method and a structured interview with purposive systematic sampling technique. The number of informants used were 8 people. While the data analysis technique is divided into three stages, namely, data collection, data reduction, and data presentation. Verification of the validity of the results of the analysis is using the source triangulation. Basically, humans have a fairly high sense of social level. Humans/employees cannot live alone especially in managing LKSAs. Employees need other people as co-workers.

As an effort to uncover the meaning and value of <em>pemaliq</em>, this study employed anthropological linguistic theory grounded in the view that <em>pemaliq</em> is a cultural source and as a practice of speaking. To collect the data needed, this study applied observation method to the participants of this study and in-depth interview. The data gathered were then analysed by applying ethnographic methods namely domain analysis, taxonomic analysis, component analysis, and analysis of cultural themes.

Meanwhile, <em>pemaliq</em> <em>pegawean</em> 'action' is realized in the form of phrases and words those are <em>merebang kayuq </em>‘cutting down trees’, <em>membait kayuq</em> <em>‘</em>taking the woods’ and <em>nyelonong ‘without permission. </em>The production and the use of these <em>pemaliq </em>represent values that can be applied in human life such as (1) respect; (2) alert; (3) polite; (4) humble; (5) tolerant; (6) responsible; (7) not greedy; (8) care of the environment; (9) awareness; (10) wisdom; (11) critical knowledge; and (12) thankful.</p> - Suliadi I Ketut Darma Laksana - Mahyuni I Wayan Simpen ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0 2018-09-15 2018-09-15 2 3 45 55 10.29332/ijssh.v2n3.195 Regulation of protection and fulfillment of employee rights of go-jek drivers under Indonesian employment regulation https://sciencescholar.us/journal/index.php/ijssh/article/view/193 <p style="text-align: justify;">Go-Jek is the biggest and successful company which provides an online transportation solution for people in Indonesia through the mobile phone application by giving the impression of being the liaison between drivers and passengers. Go-Jek drivers are referred to as "partners" who can determine the amount of their income and their own working hours. However, in reality, the partnership relationship offered that aligns drivers with transport providers has exploitative relationships. The drivers are treated as informal workers without employment protection. Using technology, Go-Jek company has managed to set the drivers but still seem to have an equal relationship and give the freedom of employment as if there were no exploitation of the drivers. This rhetoric rests on the conventional concept of working relationships that the employer has the means of production and pays an hourly wage. The fact that the company only provides the application is always emphasized to create the impression that the driver is not a worker. So the system creates an imbalance of access and power that enables the company to keep drivers working and at the same time, the company eliminate the rights of drivers as workers and charge them and risk them.</p> Kadek Januarsa Adi Sudharma Ni Ketut Elly Sutrisni Agus Putu Abiyasa ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0 2018-09-21 2018-09-21 2 3 56 62 10.29332/ijssh.v2n3.193 Pressure on socio-cultural towards post-divorce Hindu women in Denpasar city https://sciencescholar.us/journal/index.php/ijssh/article/view/191 <p style="text-align: justify;">This research was focused on reviewing the post-divorce Hindu women’s regarding socio-cultural pressure in Denpasar city. The analysis results found that the high dominance of the patrilineal culture caused Hindu women to experience social and cultural pressure after the divorce. An oblique labeling was often related to Hindu women after a divorce due to patrilineal culture dominance. The field findings indicated the fact that the divorce rate was increasing. The number who were widowed also increasing. Even those who were widowed classified as young due to they were early marriage. The pressure on socio-cultural after the divorce included first, the dominance of the patriarchal culture that was still strong in Bali. The men (<em>purusa</em>) have a strategic position in Balinese culture. This can be seen from people’s view of the men rather than women. In this case, the decision-making authority was still on the husband. Second, having to accept social stigma, Hindu women who are experiencing divorce will also be faced with a more religious stigma. A divorce in religion was actually not permitted, due to marriage was a very sacred procession. This causes divorce to be considered a family disgrace. However, the bad stigma was more predominantly directed at women, not men. Third, the social-cultural pressure for the Hindu women can be seen from the lack of protection and protection provided by traditional institutions in Bali, whether in village regulations (<em>awig-awig</em>) towards Hindu women, resulting in divorce cases increase.</p> Ida Bagus Agra I Putu Gelgel Ida Bagus Dharmika ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0 2018-09-21 2018-09-21 2 3 63 78 10.29332/ijssh.v2n3.191 From the individual to the historical: a commentary on amitav ghosh as a writer of historical fiction with reference to the glass palace https://sciencescholar.us/journal/index.php/ijssh/article/view/203 <p style="text-align: justify;">Amitav Ghosh is widely known as a historical novelist in Indian Writing in English.

Companies must translate sales data carefully so as not to draw wrong conclusions. In addition to saving mail expenses, this data manipulation can often achieve a double-digit response rate. The company stores this data (data warehousing) and makes it easily accessible to decision makers. Furthermore, by employing analysis that has expertise in complex statistical methods, companies can "dig" data (data mining) and gather new knowledge about neglected customer segments, and other useful information. The internal data system provides results data, but the marketing intelligence system provides current data (happenings).

The method used in this writing is a normative legal method, the approaches used are the statute approach and historical approach. The results of this study indicate that placing or allowing a patient to refuse medical treatment is not a mistake that is a condition for someone to be convicted.
