NUMERICAL SIMULATION OF OIL HYDROCARBONS AND HEAVY METALS TRANSPORT IN SOIL

Authors: MAHBOBA REZAI

Abstracts: Extensive entrance of oil hydrocarbons and heavy metals into subsurface soil and groundwater resources and characteristics of their propagation has become an important matter. The aim of this study is investigating the factors affecting the propagation of the contaminants in the soil using a numerical model called CTRAN/W. Hence a soil environment with 20 meters depth and 45 meters length analyzed. Boundary condition, initial condition and material properties in these simulations varied in every section. According to analyses, in coarse soils, the emission pattern is vertical and downward; however in fine soils horizontal distribution pattern is dominant. In other words generally in coarse soil the emission depth of soil pollution is more than emission length and in fine-grained the length of pollution is greater. With an increase in the density of contaminants, it has penetrated further into the aquifer and this makes it less spread on the surface of the aquifer. In both fine and coarse, the mainstream emission is vertical with an increase in transverse dispersion coefficient, the extent of pollution in the horizon increases. With an increase in longitudinal dispersion coefficient in both fine and coarse soil environment, a broader pattern of propagation is reached and other words in both horizontally and vertically, the emissions will increase. It was also observed that by increasing the ion exchange capacity, the arrival time of pollutants in the soil column increases and steep rise in emissions to reach its maximum is reduced. By increasing alkalinity, ion exchange capacity increases and therefore much more polluting soil adsorbs. The results can predict how and the extent of pollution and the importance of the effect of various parameters affecting the pollution used.

GROWTH PARAMETERS AND ELECTROLYTES’ STATUS OF GROWING PIGS FED GRADED LEVELS OF CRUDE OIL-CONTAINING DIETS

Authors: NTINYA C. JOHNSON, JOY A. OKEJIM , ANNIE O. AMAKIRI

Abstracts: This study was designed to investigate the effects of graded levels of crude oil consumption on the growth performance and electrolytes in growing pigs. 24 growing pigs weighing on average 9 ± 1.4 (mean ± SD) kg body weight (BW) were used in the study. There were four crude oil dietary treatments as: 0g (control group), 10g, 15g and 20g crude oil/kg of diet. Animals were weighed to obtain their initial BW and randomly assigned to their individual pens and allowed 14-d to adapt to their new environment after which they were presented with their experimental diets. There were 4 pigs per treatment. Animals were fed at 5% of their BW for 4 weeks after which all animals were weighed again to obtain their final BW for determining average daily feed intake (ADFI), average daily gain (ADG) and feed efficiency (FE). Blood samples were collected humanely from all animals into tubes and immediately snap frozen for electrolyte analyses: sodium (Na+), potassium (K+) and chloride (Cl-). There were no differences (P > 0.05) in the ADFI of diets 1 to 3. Diet 4 ADFI was significantly (P < 0.05) lower compared with diets 1 to 3. The ADG of diets 1 and 2 were similar (P > 0.05). The ADG of diets 3 and 4 were significantly (P < 0.05) lower compared with those of diets 1 and 2 while diet 4 demonstrated the lowest ADG. The FE mirrored ADG. Na+ serum levels were similar (P > 0.05) for diets 1 and 2 but animals on diets 3 and 4 had similar levels that were significantly (P < 0.05) lower than those of diets 1 and 2. K+ and Cl- serum levels also mimicked those of Na+. It was concluded that the threshold of crude oil ingestion for pigs lies between 10g and 15g/kg of diet because beyond the 10g/kg diet level ADFI, ADG and FE were impeded. Similarly, beyond the 10g crude oil/kg of diet Na+, P+ and Cl- sera levels were compromised.

Authors: NTINYA C. JOHNSON, JOY A. OKEJIM, ANNIE O. AMAKIRI

Abstracts: This study was conducted to examine the effects of the ingestion of graded levels of crude oil-contaminated feeds on the growth performance and electrolytes parameters in the growing pig. 24 landrace growing pigs weighing on average 8 ± 1.1 (mean ± SD) kg of body weight (BW) were randomly assigned to six dietary treatment groups of 4 pigs per treatment. Dietary groups were: 0g, 2g, 4g, 6g, 8g and 10g of crude oil/kg of diet. Animals were fed at 5% of their BW. The experiment lasted for four weeks. At the end of study all pigs were weighed to obtain their final BW. Average daily feed intake (ADFI), average daily gain (ADG) and feed efficiency (FE) were evaluated. Blood samples were also collected from all animals in the treatment groups into tubes and snap frozen for electrolytes analyses: sodium (Na+), potassium (K+) and chloride (Cl-). There were no significant (P > 0.05) differences in all parameters measured. It was concluded that the levels of crude oil contaminations used in the study were below the threshold for growing pigs.

Authors: NURMALITASARI, SRI SUMARLINDA, NYOTO SUPRIYANTO, DAVINA KUSUMA PUTRI

Abstracts: The stock price prediction is very useful for investors to see how the company's investment prospects in the future. Stock price predictions can be used to anticipate stock price deviations and assist investors in making decisions. Prediction of stock price index movements can be categorized as a problem that is quite challenging in financial predictions However, the complexity of the stock market has made it very difficult to develop predictive models that can be said to be effective. We offer a systematic analysis of the use of deep learning neural networks to analyze and predict the stock market. The ability of this deep learning neural network method is able to extract features from a large amount of data without relying on prior knowledge from predictors, thus making this deep learning method suitable for predicting stock prices at high frequencies.

EXAMINING ORGANIZATIONAL CHANGE CAPACITY IN LOCAL GOVERNMENT

Authors: JERSON M. MORES, AMARANTH M. WONG

Abstracts: It is a cliché that change is inevitable but it is what it is. For many organization, change is a constant thing. If a leader’s mandate is to prepare the organization for change in the future while delivering results in the present, then specific preparation is required. Recent studies on organizational change were done on private and big organizations but are limited on local governments where change is also a common thing. This study gave focus on the organizational change capacity of local government employees in one of the towns in Romblon, Philippines There are six dimensions of change capacity namely; facilitative culture, supportive infrastructure, different change approaches, ongoing strategizing, sufficient resources and willingness and ability to change that were the basis of this study. Based on the result of the study, the dimension that has the highest change capacity is the different change approaches which shows that these employees understood different approaches to change by using appropriate methods and strategy. They gave importance to expertise, accept coaching and consulting, share best practices and inform people of the changes to happen. There is a proper dissemination of information in the organization by debriefing people and giving importance to learning and experience. Overall, the organization is ready for any organization change in the future depending on the mandate of their leader.

Authors: CRISTINA DT. GERON, MAEM, JOEL B. BACAY, MAED, REALIZA M. MAME, PHD

Abstracts: The study determined the link of the Batangas Port Development Project (BPDP) to the socio-economic status of key cities and coastal municipalities of Batangas, province of Philippines. It described the development project’s coverage, the extent of implementation, and port revenues; it revealed the effects of the BPDP to the socio-economic status of selected areas nearest to and with direct access to Batangas Port; and it discussed the implications of the findings to the stakeholders, specifically the local government personnel and officials. A descriptive method of research was used with documentary analysis to gather relevant information about BPDP. Data on socio-economic status as indicators were focused on the city or town’s income, employment rate, number of businesses, education, health rate, and crime rate. Linear regression analysis was used to identify the relationship between port revenues and each indicator which contained beta coefficients, t-values, and probability values at 0.05 significant level. Results revealed that the coverage was placed under rehabilitation and planned into four (4) phases which constructed and financed through foreign loans; the extent of implementation was fully implemented up to the second phase only with the required facilities and amenities constructed, and the revenue was evidently increasing every year which can be attributed to the outcome of enhanced services. Socio-economic status of selected areas was described as socially and economically increasing with port revenues’ positive effects in the realization of development which also have positive implication to the stakeholders.

A STUDY ON THE EFFECT OF MUSIC ON SHORT TERM MEMORY WITH THE USE OF DIGIT SPAN TASK AMONG STUDENTS

Authors: MARIEL CHUA, GAVIN WILLIAM NGIE, CHRISTIAN JASPER C. NICOMEDES, CINDERELLA A. STA. CRUZ

Abstracts: Short Term Memory is limited and momentary, as it only lasts for a few seconds and generally can hold 5 to 9 items if not rehearsed or actively maintained. The short term memory can hold an average of 7 items within 15 to 30 seconds. One of the Memory Span Tests used is Digit Span Test which measures the Short Term Memory with the use of numbers. There are already a lot of studies regarding Digit Span Test. However, there is not much study that focuses on the effect of music on Digit Span Test. This experimental study aimed to determine the Digit Span Scores of students of MMC-CAST. The researchers gathered 120 participants from senior high school and college department, dividing them into one control group and two experimental groups. All groups underwent Digit Span Task in both forward and backward order, wherein only the two experimental groups have rock or classical music playing in the background. The result shows that female has higher mean rank score than male eve if the Digit Span scores were combined (p<0.05). Additionally, both rock (d=-0.24) and classical music (d=0.22) have a small effect only on the Backward Digit Span scores of the respondents.

Authors: CANNERY S. OLEZA, JESSICA T. CARRACEDO, CHRISTIAN JASPER C. NICOMEDES, CINDERELLA A. STA. CRUZ

Abstracts: Despite the increasing popularity of tattoo nowadays, the stigma still occurs towards people with inked skin. The researchers aimed to determine the level of acceptance of MMC-CAST students towards people with tattoo. The data gathering was divided into two phases. First, a six-item survey questionnaire determining impression towards people with tattoo was conducted with a total of n=100 respondents. Secondly, an acceptance survey consisting of twenty-two items determining the level of acceptance of the respondents towards people with tattoo was given; and a video of an aid worker woman with a full body tattoo helping a malnourished child in Nigeria was shown. The video served as a treatment used by the researchers shown only on the experimental group. The students were divided into experimental group n=51 and control group n=79, with a total of n=130 respondents. On the actual laboratory experiment, a pre-test and post-test was conducted. The experimental group took a pre-test and watched the video before taking the post-test. The control group did not take the post-test. Results showed a significant difference between the results of pre-test and post-test on the impression and acceptance survey.

SPONTANEOUS SUBDURAL EMPYEMA SECONDARY TO ESCHERICHIA COLI INFECTION: CASE REPORT

Authors: PANTANGCO, J. O. , ALVAREZ, R. M., DELFINO, J. M.

Abstracts: Subdural Empyema (SDE) is an uncommon intracranial infection commonly caused by staphylococcal or streptococcal infection via contiguous spread or intracranial surgery. This disease entity is not immediately considered in patients who develop a subdural lesion because of its non-specific clinical presentation and radiologic features. Our patient was managed initially as a spontaneous subacute subdural hematoma with concomitant E. coli urinary tract infection (UTI), and later treated as a case of E. Coli positive subdural empyema. Prompt diagnosis and adequate treatment is critical because SDE is a neurosurgical emergency associated with a high mortality.

Abstracts: The test is carried out as an evaluation material for learning outcomes conducted at the end of a certain period or at the end of a material. Along with the development of technology, the current manual or conventional examination system wants to be changed to a computerized test system or Computer Based Test (CBT). In this study the authors used the Computerized Fixed-Form Test (CFT) method. The SDLC Model used is a waterfall, design using UML. The applications used are XAMPP, Mysql, PHP, CSS. In CFT the questions given are randomized, but with a fixed amount. the CFT method is part of CBT. With the waterfall, each question has been conditioned on the levels of difficulty first, so that when inputted on a computer there is no more sorting based on the level of difficulty performed by the system. With the online test system (CBT), the testing process can take place quickly, the calculation of grades can also be displayed quickly, precisely and accurately. In the waterfall the process must be sequenced and cannot complete the next stage if the previous stage has not been completed. The most fundamental felt in the use of the Computer Based Test (CBT) system is the savings in the use of paper.

A FRAMEWORK FOR THE ANALYSIS OF INTEGRATED AGRICULTURAL VALUE CHAINS IN THE CONTEXT OF SMALLHOLDER FARMERS

Authors: DAVID MURONDA, MARIAN TUKUTA, STANLEY MARSHAL MAKUZA

Abstracts: Agriculture remains the best opportunity for the majority of people worldwide living in smallholder farms to trade their way out of poverty. Growth generated by agriculture is four times more effective in reducing poverty than growth in any other sectors. Future growth in the agriculture sector relies heavily on diversification and promotion of opportunities for the addition of value. Smallholder farmers rarely engage in single enterprises, but on agriculture as a complete economic system, where a couple of crops and different livestock are integrated on the same farm. However, the reality of smallholder farmers has been understood mostly from fragmented single value chain analysis. In this paper, we develop a theoretical framework that uses the transaction cost and system dynamics theories to study interdependent agricultural value chains. Relevant articles were downloaded from internet and value chain analyses theories were reviewed. We conclude that the integrated value chain provide both income and food security for smallholders in a way which cannot be understood with the application of a single theory. We recommend the validation of the integration of these two theories in future research on smallholder value chains.

ASSESSMENT OF INFRASTRUCTURAL PROVISION AND ADEQUACY IN NIGERIA/BENIN BORDER TOWNS OF OGUN STATE: USING CONFIRMATORY FACTOR ANALYSIS

Authors: OJO OLADIMEJI OLUSOLA, OPOKO AKUNNAYA PEARL

Abstracts: The state of infrastructural provision determines wellbeing, progress and development of both governments and citizens. Due to the declining level of infrastructures, researchers are devising empirical methodologies to assess state of these services in border communities to inform policy formulation by government in these countries. In this vein, the current study examines the level of infrastructural facilities provision in border communities between Nigeria and Benin-Republic through the application of Confirmatory Factor Analysis (CFA). This was applied to data obtained from a scientific sample of 280 respondents via a structured questionnaire instrument. The outcome of the analysis reveals that residents of the investigated border communities are faced with acute supply of infrastructural facilities while the available ones are in critical or poor conditions. The study urges the governments in developing countries to formulate and execute effective developmental policies that will improve the level of infrastructures in border communities and other areas in order to provide sustainable living environment for the citizen.

QUANTUM COMPUTING IN BIG DATA

Authors: RASHMI RAJ

Abstracts: We live in a world which celebrates data intrusion at all levels. We like to see data generated and imbibed. We also need order where efficiency in data handling is desired. So big data was envisaged to make data look relevant and be managed. The extent of data created is large. We would not be able to handle such a amount of data if we do not create placeholders. For placeholders to work we need better data encoding. For encoders to go we need level adept handlers. Quantum computing steps in. It gives enormous data handlers and it makes big data look simpler. When we have quantum coding to the necessary we live in world where we are able to achieve data sufficiency.

REWARD MANAGEMENT SYSTEM MODEL FOR UNIVERSITY GOVERNANCE

Authors: LYDIA EMURON

Abstracts: The study set out to analyse the contribution of the Reward Management System (RMS) on the Performance of Academic Staff (ASP) in Selected Private Universities in Uganda as mediated by the cost of living (COL). A cross-sectional survey design using both qualitative and quantitative approaches was used. Data were collected using questionnaires, focus group discussions and interviews from 250 respondents. Data was analysed by descriptive and inferential methods. Descriptive analysis involved frequencies, percentages and means. Inferential analysis involved correlation and regression analyses. The results revealed that there was a positive significant relationship between RMS and COL, significant relationship between the COL and the ASP. RMS and Performance were found to be moderately and significantly related. The study concluded that there was a relationship between RMS, Col and ASP. A Progressive RMS Model was proposed, which when subjected to simulation, exhibited a raise in academic staff performance by up to 58.7 percent. This model redefines performance of academic staff to include and reward both technical and behavioural aspects, as well as factoring into the reward formula the effect of changes in the cost of living. universities adopt the Progressive Reward Management Model to improve motivation of staff, stability and sustainability of institutional achievement.
