Dr. Djafar Albram

Abstract: Conflicts in busisness sea trade have positive relationship with the increasing activities of the sea international trade. However, this kind of conflict was still unable to be solved accurately, precisely, safely and smoothly either by the Indonesia’s court system or other states’ court systems. For this reason, this research taking the cases in the Port of Belawan, North Sumatera, Indonesia has three objectives. The first is to examine forms and mechanisms to settle business sea trade dispute. The second is to determine factors that encourage business community settled the sea trade dispute outside the formal court. The third is to address judgment and barriers faced by business community in settling their business trade outside the formal court. The approach used to analyse the research questions was based on the normative legal approach using both primary and secondary data. The instruments for collecting primary data are through field observation, in-depth interview and questionnaires. The secondary data were from literature and other legal documents related with business sea trade. The study found as follows. First, mediation or negotiation has been the dominant way that was used by the business community in the port of Belawan to solve the business sea trade disputes. Second, the practical, economic and the legal cultural reasons have been the reasons why the business sea trade disputes were settled outside the formal court. Third, judgment to use mediation or negotiations by business community is because this method is open and based on kinship principle. However, there is obstacles encountered using this method including the lack of understanding of the parties, the knowledge and negotiation techniques itself, and the absence of a law. Thus, much remain to done by the government to formulate rules to support this mediation or negotiation method in formal legal way.

Abstract: Now the days Fayoumi and Sonali breeds are commonly reared in scavenging rearing system in Bangladesh. The aim of the present study was to determine the liveability of Fayoumi and Sonali chicks. One observational cross-sectional study was done on the Fayoumi and Sonali chicks at Chittagong and Noakhali district from October 2005 to July 2006. A total of 48 farmers (24 from each Upazila) were selected randomly, who reared chicks under scavenging condition and as well as had broody hens. Twelve eggs of each breed were supplied to each farmer. The chicks were hatched out by the farmers managed broody hens. Then the chicks were reared under scavenging system. The overall liveability of Fayoumi chick after 8-week was 58.2% and the difference between Chittagong and Noakhali sites was negligible, which did not vary at all (χ2 = 0, df = 1, p > 0.05). Whereas the overall liveability of Sonali chick was 49.4% and there was small variation between two sites, but it did not differ significantly (χ2 = 0.316, df = 1, p > 0.05). On the other hand, the liveability of Fayoumi chick was higher than that of Sonali, though it did not vary significantly (χ2 = 1.317, df = 1, p > 0.05). After 12 weeks the liveability of Fayoumi was 42.3% and Sonali 31.2% that varied between two breeds, but not significantly (χ2 = 3.43, df = 1, p > 0.05). The liveability of Fayoumi chicks was higher Chittagong (43.8%), but that was not significantly different from in Noakhali (40.9%) (χ2 = 0.04, df = 1, p > 0.05). Liveability for Sonali did not differ significantly between two sites (χ2 = 11, df = 1, p > 0.06). Liveability of Fayoumi chicks was better than Sonali under scavenging rearing condition.
