Low work motivation and lack of employee performance cause poor public services in the Magetan regional government. One of the contributing factors is additional employee income (AEI) is unfair. Thus, this research develops a model for providing additional employee income which refers to the 2022 Magetan Regent Regulation. This research uses a mixed method with qualitative and quantitative integration. This model considers four assessment factors, namely workload, working conditions, work performance, and professional scarcity. The research results show an increase of 27% in the proposed AEI compared to the existing AEI. The proposed AEI not only considers class and position aspects but also the daily activities of each employee. The urgency of this research is to provide the best model to calculate the AEI and encourage employees to continue to achieve optimal performance, especially at the Magetan Regency Transportation Service.

Khayrul Alam
Abstract       pdf Full text PDF

Neuromarketing focuses primarily on brain activities, comprehending consumers' subconscious minds, elucidating their preferences, motivations, and expectations, and forecasting their behavior. Therefore, neuromarketing is the study of how people's brains respond to advertising and other brand-related messages by scientifically monitoring brainwave activity, eye tracking, and skin response. It involves measuring physiological and neural impulses to gain insight into customers' motivations, preferences, and choices. This paper aims to scrutinize neuromarketing strategies applied by marketers as a marketing tool in marketing management and figure out how to deal with them. This study conducts a critical review of existing literature. We summarize the context of neuromarketing, its terminology, concepts, procurement process, real-world business examples, methods and techniques, managerial applications, conclusions, and implications for consumer research. The results indicate that neuromarketing holds significant potential for consumer research, as it facilitates the collection of information and new insights that businesses can use to develop customercentric ideas. As a result, this review will assist researchers in developing effective approaches to provide better and more efficient services to consumers by utilizing scientific methods to understand how consumers respond to marketing campaigns.

This article aims to develop the topic of psychosis from a structural perspective. The starting point is the judgment of reality and as this is expressed in a distorted way in the symptoms, it is necessary not only to recover the capacity for lucidity, but above all, to understand the affective origin that precipitated the subject into the pathological process. This work is justified by the already widely known fact that psychosis is a very debilitating symptomatic condition with pessimistic prognoses, leading many psychotic patients to develop a situation of chronic dependence on mental health systems. The work methodology is theoretical, however, with a focus on practical applicability, that is, when developing the theme, the aim is to offer means of action to therapists and mental health professionals who deal directly with patients in a psychotic process. The theoretical premises are based on the contributions of the two greatest authors in psychoanalysis: Freud and Lacan.

The Artistic Expression at the Political Action Service
Jamal Khalil, Sara Cherqaoui
Abstract       pdf Full text PDF

In the wake of the Arab uprisings of 2011, dubbed the "Arab Spring", Morocco saw an unprecedented but above all unexpected social protest movement: the February 20 Movement (M20F). Young artists on the urban scene, especially rappers, decided to transform their tool of artistic expression into an instrument of political action, joining this popular protest. The question we'll be dealing with is not that of the spoken word itself, but rather that of how it became resistant and militant, and how it became a tool of protest. Examples: "Les chiens de l'état" by rapper Mouad Belghouat aka El Haqed, a key figure in the M20F movement, and "Mabghitch" by Tawfik Hazeb aka Don Bigg. Secondly, methodologically, we'll make it clear that rap cannot be limited to a protest activity, nor can we reduce this music to its subversive dimension, given that the political character of rap is multifaceted, and that the discourse conveyed by rap can indeed be perceived and used as a form of commitment, awareness and willingness to act on representations in the social world. We will then try to understand how speech becomes political and how protest speech spaces are formed. Finally, we will show the management and strategy adopted by the state in the face of the protest threat: intimidation, denunciation, imploration, instrumentalization of the media, discrediting the M20F.

Rissa Mahfirah’eni, Bambang Suhardi, Retno Wulan Damayanti
Abstract       pdf Full text PDF

The problem of poor safety culture is one of the causes of work accidents. Until now, there are no specific safety culture maturity level measurement parameters, so a safety culture maturity level measuring tool has been developed that follows the characteristics of the industry/company. Safety culture measurement parameters must include psychological, behavioral, and situational aspects. The establishment of measuring tools for assessing safety culture maturity level also adapts to the conditions of K3 management and the legislation used by the Company. The assessment was carried out at one of the companies in Indonesia, namely PT. Cahaya Anugerah Sentosa Makassar. The safety culture maturity level assessment at PT Cahaya Anugerah Sentosa Makassar was carried out using a questionnaire that had a total of 30 questions covering psychological, behavioral, and situational aspects. Measurements are grouped into five dimensions, namely information and communication, commitment, organizational learning, leadership and involvement, and competence. The measurement/assessment results show that the safety culture maturity level value is at level 4, namely proactive. These results show that awareness of occupational safety and health is comprehensive at all job levels, with the management system starting to involve workers in the improvisational stage of K3 management and starting to change the purely top-bottom management approach to two-way communication.

The Discourse of Identity between two Cultures in Migrant Literature: Yamina Benguigui and Fatou Diome
Abstract       pdf Full text PDF

Literature plays a major role in imagining, saying and doing the city. Migrant writing provides an insider's view of the process of acculturation, the construction of migrant identity and urban identity. Identity is one of the key areas of contemporary research, as are immigration and the city. Today, identity is conceived as the result of constructions and strategies that are constantly changing and being recomposed. Cultural identity is constructed and maintained through the process of sharing collective knowledge such as traditions, heritage, language, aesthetics, norms and customs. Since birth, women have been searching for their identity as women in a world dominated by men. This is a world in which women have no place other than in the public sphere, i.e. the home where they live, while the private sphere is reserved for men. Through their writing, authors Yamina Benguigui and Fatou Diome try to demand that women have a place in the public sphere. Through the protagonists of their stories, they call for the emancipation of women and female identity.Zouina, the protagonist of Inch'allah dimanche, left for France to live near her husband. On her journey, she is in search of her identity as much as an Algerian, but she will be confronted with another French identity.But during her stay, she was emancipated as much as an Algerian woman. Salie, the protagonist of the novel Le Ventre de L'Atlantique, has been searching for her identity since birth, through being the other.

Joko Nurhuda, Hendrawan Santosa Putra, Wahyu Agus Winarno
Abstract       pdf Full text PDF

Fees for Acquisition of Rights on Land and/or Building (BPHTB) is one of the Original Local Revenue (PAD) on the acquisition of rights to land and/or buildings borne by the buyer or recipient of the transfer of rights to land and buildings. The lowest basis in determining BPHTB is the Tax Object Sale Value - Land and Building Tax (NJOP-PBB). However, the NJOP PBB cannot be used as a reference in determining the Tax Object Acquisition Value (NPOP) because the difference between the NJOP PBB and market value is very far. The BPHTB reporting process carried out by taxpayers is still not correct. The research method used in this research is qualitative case study. Primary data includes information collected from original sources such as interviews, documentation, and observation. The results of the research related to BPHTB reporting in Lumajang District which is still not appropriate include photos of tax objects, road access, location points/coordinates, and transaction prices or fair values. Some factors that influence taxpayer behavior in the BPHTB reporting process include honesty factors, compliance factors, and taxpayer awareness factors.

Dialogical Communication: Coordination between Diskominfo and the Protocol and Leadership Communication Section in Executing the Function and Role of Public Relations at the Kediri City Government
Wardah Hani, Nilam Wardasari
Abstract       pdf Full text PDF

The placement of public relations in private agencies and government is not the same. In government, the formation of a new Regional Apparatus Organization (OPD) called Dinas Kominfo (Diskominfo) did not immediately abolish the previously existing PR section. The policy of placing public relations is fully returned to regional autonomy in view of the needs and capabilities of each region, therefore the practice of placing the PR department in each region varies. Kediri municipal government has two separate public relations departments, namely: Diskominfo and Prokompim Division. With the existence of two parts, the internal public relations practitioner of the Kediri City Government stated that the task of public relations could be more focused, but in implementation it would be prone to cause an overlapping phenomenon in the form of overlapping roles and functions of these two parts. This study uses a qualitative descriptive method with constructivist paradigm. The technique of determining the informants in this study used purposive sampling and snowball sampling with data collection techniques in the form of in-depth interviews and documentation tracking activities. The results of this study indicate that the form of dialogical communication is in the form of a coordination strategy between the Ministry of Communication and Information (Diskominfo) and the Prokompim Section in the form of regular meetings, the formation of internal media in the form of a WhatsApp group consisting of both parties, and the emergence of new policies agreed by both parties. related to public relations activities in Kediri City Government. The impact felt after the coordination strategy is that the flow of information becomes clearer, there is a sense of responsibility to exchange information, cooperate and collaborate, besides that the overlapping phenomenon is reduced. Several agendas and subsections that were originally in the Prokompim Section have been transferred to Diskominfo seeing the accuracy of their roles. After being transferred, the performance of the agenda or sub-section becomes broader, not just focusing on the activities of the leader. For example: Harmoni TV, City Tabloid, and City Government Agenda named Reflection.
