The national language of the Republic of Indonesia is <em>Bahasa Indonesia</em>. Besides the national language, local languages are usually used by local people in a country according to the people’s ethnicities. The local language used by local people is also called the first language. There are about 719 local languages throughout Indonesia. In Java, some local languages are used in specific regions and have their uniqueness as the form of local people’s local wisdom. One of the existing local languages in Java is Banyumasan Javanese Language, also known as Penginyongan Language or <em>Basa Ngapak</em>, used in Banjarnegara, Purbalingga, Banyumas, Cilacap, Kebumen and surroundings (Barlingmascakeb). Many researchers have reported that their speakers slowly abandoned local languages because of migration, the young generation’s reluctance to use the local language, and lack of pride in first language factors. A UNESCO report states that nearly 1,500 ethnic languages are becoming extinct every day. Using a quantitative approach, this research randomly took the respondents, constituting Banyumasan language speakers from some regencies. The data were collected through questionnaires that were distributed online. The collected data were analyzed using a descriptive statistics technique. The research results show that Banyumasan Javanese Language started to be abandoned by its main speakers and their descendants, both in family communication and online activities on the internet and social media communication.</p> Ali Rokhman, Rawuh Edy Priyono, Imam Santosa, Sri Pangestuti, Mustasyfa Thabib Kariadi ##submission.copyrightStatement## Sun, 22 May 2022 00:00:00 +0800 Are You Two Just Friends? Emotional and Sexual Infidelity Across Sexual Orientations <p>Lesbians are unlikely to ask if it is possible for women and women to be friends. Bisexuals have friends of each sex. It seems that it is primarily heterosexuals who have trouble with <em>sex-of-attraction friendships</em>. This study examined how participants perceived the emotional and sexual infidelity of their partner’s relationship with a friend differing across sexuality and biological sex. Our participants consisted of a combined sample across two studies (<em>n</em> = 532), participants completed measures of their perceived emotional and sexual infidelity towards 10 controlled behaviors that their partners committed with the partner’s friends. The data revealed that participants were more concerned with perceived emotional infidelity with sex(es)-of-attraction friends as a function of participants’ sexual orientation, sex, and their lover’s sexual orientation. Our evidence shows that when in relationships, people feel most threatened by the friend of the partner who possesses the same biological machinery as them. Furthermore, results suggest that people are also more likely to be threatened by their partner’s friend, who may have a mutual attraction towards their partner. The effect of the same biological machinery and the mutual attraction on perceived infidelity is additive. The pattern is seen across heterosexual, homosexual, and bisexual relationships.</p> Samantha Yim, Nicole Tanzer, Margaret Satchwell, Coty Chen, Juanshu Wu, Daniel Javidi, Marissa Hensley, Catherine Phan, Jarryd Willis ##submission.copyrightStatement## Fri, 01 Jul 2022 00:00:00 +0800 Power of Social Media Usage Over Travelers' Choice of Tourist Destination <p class="text"><span lang="EN-US">Digital marketing thru the use of social media has been proven to be an effective tool to reach out to a wider audience.

However, there is a dearth of research, which focuses on nurses working in mental health settings.<a name="_Hlk64888993"></a> This study explored the knowledge and preparedness of nurses working in mental health settings to identify and manage IPV. <a name="_Hlk106858092"></a>The hypothesis developed for this study was: nurses have negative perceptions towards the management of IPV; and demographic characteristics influence the nurses’ perceptions towards IPV. A cross-sectional quantitative survey design was used. One hundred and nine nurses working within the acute in-patient and community mental health setting completed the Physicians Readiness to Manage Intimate Partner Violence Survey (PREMIS). The results of the study show that <span style="color: black;">the participants lack competence in identifying potential victimized individuals and may not feel adequately prepared and knowledgeable to address IPV in their practice. However, they are willing to manage IPV and have identified the need of more competence in the area. </span>These findings are similar to literature which involved populations other than nurses who work in mental health settings. Nurses in mental health settings need training on how to identify and manage IPV cases. Mixed methods research in this area is also recommended. </span></p> Charmaine Micallef, Alexei Sammut, Paulann Grech ##submission.copyrightStatement## Wed, 06 Jul 2022 00:00:00 +0800
