Regulate the death penalty for drug traffickers listed in article 114 paragraph (12), article 119 paragraph (2) and article 121 paragraph (2) which can impose the death penalty that has evidence exceeding 5 (five grams) and narcotics groups 1 and 2. The purpose of the study is to find out how the regulation of capital punishment against perpetrators of criminal acts of illicit drug trafficking and how capital punishment disparities against perpetrators of illicit trafficking in narcotics as well as criminal law policies to overcome the disparity in the death penalty for perpetrators of illegal drug trafficking through approach according to Law Number 35 of 2009 concerning Narcotics. The research conducted juridical legal research with a normative approach taken from primary data by conducting library studies and secondary data by processing data from primary legal materials, secondary legal materials and tertiary legal materials. Based on the results of the study, it was understood that the regulation of the death penalty against perpetrators of criminal acts of illicit drug trafficking could be carried out by the death penalty reinforced by the Decision of the Constitutional Court (MK) Number 203 / PUU-V / 2007 dated October 30<sup>th</sup>, 2007, be carried out carefully and pay attention to the rights of death row inmates who are in the stage after the verdict will wait for the period of clemency, and then will wait for the execution of the death sentence. The disparity in narcotics penalty decisions is caused by several factors, namely the difference in the philosophy of punishment, the factor of the absence of criminal guidance, the factor of the independent judicial authority, the factor of authority of the judge’s decision. In this case there will be discrimination between dealers who are given a decision by the judge, in the case of a sentence that is not in accordance with its portion., regarding it should be associated with evidence found. Therefore, special rules are needed regarding the death penalty associated with narcotics evidence, for example having 5 kg of narcotics can be sentenced to death, without having gaps like what happened in article 114 paragraph (2)</p> Yogi Prasetya Sinambela Copyright (c) 2020 Yogi Prasetya Sinambela Thu, 25 Jun 2020 14:32:19 +0000 Copyright Royalty of Book Publishing as Collateral Objects <p>The General Purpose of Intellectual Property Rights (IPR), specifically regarding the protection of Copyright, is to provide support for creators to continue to create works by providing avenues by obtaining material results.

To achieve this purpose, the study analysed the correlations between teaching evaluation scores by student and evaluation on lecturers’ performances by dean, and between teaching evaluation scores by student and students’ final examination results. Census study was applied to collect all data, which involved 124 lecturers and eight deans. The study used data from the online system, which involved evaluation made for 246 courses by all active students in semester June – November 2018. Descriptive and inferential statistics were applied in this study and analysed using SPSS version 21.0. The result showed that there is no significant relationship between teaching evaluation scores by student and evaluation on lecturers’ performances by dean. This study also found that there is no significant relationship between teaching evaluation scores by student and students’ final examination results. Based on the findings, the study inferred there is bias in the evaluation instruments and there are external factors contributed to the outcome of insignificant correlations in both analyses, thus the effect or impact of the evaluation system to academic division is not significant</p> Nooradelena Mohd Ruslim, Ng Loo Ee, Norhusna Saharun, Nurhusna Baharuddin, Nurul Ain Abu Bakar, Mohd Khairil Abd Karim Copyright (c) 2020 Nooradelena Mohd Ruslim Thu, 25 Jun 2020 14:50:58 +0000 Designing and Developing Artificial Intelligence Applications Troubleshooting Computers as Learning Aids <p>The learning to analyze problems and do improvements on hardware and installation of application software is part of the basic competencies of knowledge and skills of computers and basic networks. Based on observations, the learning process has not been able to provide a real picture of the problems that often occur on computers. The purpose of this study is to design and develop learning aids through artificial intelligence applications on computer troubleshooting. The research method used is R &amp; D (Research and Development) with a 4-D model. The results of the study this is the application being valid, practical and effective. Based on the results of the study, it can be concluded that the application of artificial intelligence to computer troubleshooting has been successfully designed and developed.</p> Andri Eka Putra, Kasman Rukun, Dedy Irfan, Engkizar, Wirdati, Munawir K, Fahrul Usmi, Azhar Jaafar @Ramli Copyright (c) 2020 Andri Eka Putra Thu, 25 Jun 2020 15:08:56 +0000 Seven Motivations of Students Selecting Department of Islamic Teaching Education in Public University <p class="p1">Choosing a career as an Islamic teacher has many challenges as well as fun, not everyone is interested in this profession except those who have strong motivation.
