Abstract

Bioremediation of petroleum sludge was conducted by using land-farming method in micro scale and by applying an indigenous bacteria Bacillus megaterium. The samples were from PT. Pertamina Musi Banyuasin district of South Sumatra. The research aim was to evaluate the performance of the bacteria in degrading petroleum sludge. The rate of the biodegradation process was determined by using differential method and the data analyses show that the reaction order is 0.74. Then, the rate of biodegradation constant was determined by using an integral method assuming that the biodegradation process was a first reaction order. From the calculation, it was revealed that the biodegradation reaction constant was 0.0204/day. The bioremediation-kinetics model is y = -0.0204X + 2.0365, and by using this model the bioremediation process could be ended after 99.83 days. The qualitative analysis was carried out by using GC-MS to investigate the components of compounds changed during the bioremediation process. The results show that the B. megaterium could degrade 99.32% of alkane compounds.

Abstract

This article elaborate about the neccesity of renewal Islamic theology in the context of pluralism and multiculturalism. One of contemporary Muslim schoolars, Fethullah Gulen, could be considered among the most influential Muslim theologians in the context of modern world. His works focus on redef ining the nature of Islamic discourse in the contemporary world by doing interreligious and intercultural dialogue. Today, we need to shift our paradigm from classical kalam which dogmatic, abstract, and exclusive, to be more practical theology, based on contemporary needs of human life, by presenting as what is called “social theology”. It’s important to note that Gulen’s theological discourse distinguished for his support of democracy, humanisme, openness to globalization, progressiveness in integrating tradition with modernity, and to make sense of pluralistic-piety.

Abstract

Radicalism in Islam gives depict about the existing of group that exclusive and militant. The attitude without compromise, not respect other people who different faith and crude are “the truth” that they chose. They do not care the destructive reason of their action. Moreover, they do the crude by the naming of religion whereas they are not well confessor of religion. Look at this problem, the writer feels to obligate to reflect back, why Islam is the religion “rahmatan lil ‘alamin”, the religion that loved the peace is becoming the object of all the disturbance action in radical sight. There are two factors of arisen Radical Islam in Indonesia. The first internal factor occurs because the existing of diversion the religion norms. Secondly, external factor for the Muslim whether is occurred by controller or hegemony from western does not support toward applying of Islamic law in the life. The obligation of the rule and public organization of preaching in Indonesia for together handles the radicalism problem of religion so that the goal of preaching to share the conciliation messages, Islam as the welfare religion and the mercy can realize for all the people.

Abstract

ABSTRACT This study aims to determine how the effect of the reduction in fuel subsidies or subsidized fuel price increase the consumption pattern of low-income households, medium and high in the city of Palembang. Rising fuel prices, led to declining real incomes of households that ultimately every household will adjust their consumption patterns on the type of food and non-food. Changes in consumption patterns of food to non-food indicates a decrease levels of household welfare. The method used to obtain primary data is done by simple random sampling method is sampling with every element in the population has an equal chance of being selected into the sample of primary data in the form of questionnaires were collected by in-depth interviews (depth interview) in the group of households that group of low-income households to obtain more specific information in order to answer the research problem. While secondary data mainly comes from the Central Statistics Agency (BPS) in order to complete the Primary or comparison of data obtained. Processing the data using SPSS version 17 by first testing the validity and reliability of the data used before and after the increase in fuel prices. The results showed that the low-income community was hit hard by rising fuel prices. The result is a substitution effect where there is a change in the pattern of consumption of non-food consumption into food consumption as a result of rising the fuel price Key Word: consumption patterns, consumption of food, consumption of non- food
