Abstract With the advent of information era, issues about video copyright continue to emerge. In the grey industrial chain of piracy, the film industry is a major disaster area so far. The current protection schemes for video copyright are inefficient and costly so that video industry still has to face the infringement. Research on a simple and efficient protection technology of video copyright is urgent. To address the inefficiency and irregularity of the current protection schemes for video copyright, this paper proposes a simple and efficient protection scheme for video copyright based on video zero-watermarking and blockchain. The results show that key-frames extraction and key-frames zero-watermarking based on NSCT-SVD in the proposed video zero-watermarking algorithm perform well and achieve low-cost protection for video copyright in practical environment. In addition, video zero-watermarking algorithm of proposed scheme works well with blockchain. Proposed scheme improves some extent on database centralization and evidential difficulties of traditional video zero-watermarking schemes, and it is more reliable, simpler and more effective than traditional video zero-watermarking schemes without blockchain. Keywords: Video copyright, Blockchain, Zero-watermarking, Privacy, Key-frames extraction

The coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic has become a “major disaster” for Indonesia. Communities became confused after the Government instructed people to “Stay at Home” and “Work from Home” in order to end the spread of the coronavirus. Many people feel that the Government's decision is detrimental because not everybody can work from home. There were many employee reductions in several companies and did not have a steady income. This study attempted to find out the use of Instagram as one of the popular media during the COVID-19 pandemic in Indonesia on economic impact. This study employed the semiotics method to analyse the #stayathomeindonesia hashtag on Instagram from 20 March 2020 to 5 April 2020. It was revealed that during the COVID-19 pandemic, Indonesian Instagram users used the platform to post their activity at home. Indonesian behaviours on Instagram amid the COVID-19 pandemic include posting homemade food, children’s drawings or colourings at home, and food order through online applications. So that the online-based economy more benefited than the offline-based because of limited activities outside the home due to appeals for staying at home.

Coronavirus disease 2019 is a major disaster for apathy bureaucracy, so the government is required to be able to provide public services in limited interactions. Therefore, the dynamic governance ability shown in this study aims to reveal public expectations in public services during Covid-19 through policy, and to understand the realization of objectives that must be fully understood. As well as how the democratization of public services should be the road to service excellent seen based on the theory of dynamic capabilities that are part of dynamic governance, where able people and agile processes become the benchmark of good implementation of public services, using 3 indicators namely Thinking Ahead, Thinking Again, and Thinking Across. all this is a process towards democratizing public services in Indonesia. This research is a qualitative method with a library study approach. The results stated that Indonesia needs to transform public services using the concept of dynamic capabilities in order to realize the democratization of public services.

Objective: We describe the practical aspects of planning for and executing the safe movement of patients and care teams from an existing tertiary hospital (Mafraq Hospital) to a new hospital (Sheikh Shakhbout Medical City) in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.Methods: Field notes and measures taken during the planning and execution of this event were prospectively collated by the authors to inform the final manuscript.Results: A central command structure similar to that used for major disaster management helped to guide the move of all inpatients, staff and support services from one hospital to the other. Five patient tracks (clinical teams) were established to move patients to the new facility concurrently along set and separate routes. Five additional support tracks were established to provide logistical support for the movement of essential non-patient resources. A total of 142 acutely ill general care and critically ill hospital patients were moved during a five-hour period with zero patient harm events.Conclusions: The tools, processes used, and lessons learned in this exercise are shared in the hope that others who are required to move hospitals can learn from and use our experience.
