5G NETWORK OPTIMIZATIONS FOR STREAMING MULTIMEDIA SERVICES

Authors: HEGAZI IBRAHIM

Abstracts: According to major challenges that faced the transmission of streaming media over wireless networks, it is essential to propose many mechanisms to support fair quality for all subscribers in the available coverage area. In this research, proposed algorithms could be implemented for solving delay and losses problems as the following: (I) Usage of hybrid radio resource managements (RRM) and distributed antenna systems (DASs), (II) Using smart antenna techniques in the transmission and reception of streaming packets, (III) Using proposed jamming node algorithms to solve co-channel interference without increasing number of cells and (IV) Proposed algorithms for accessing multimedia streaming services over 5G networks such as voice over internet protocol (VOIP) and Internet Protocol Television (IPTV). The proposed schemes had to improve the overall system quality of service (QoS) based on different international standard quality metrics.

IMPROVING UP LAND RICE YIELD UNDER INTEGRATED NUTRIENT MANAGEMENT PRACTICES IN LIBERIA

Authors: HIAMA PRINCE D., YANQUOI HARRIS, JONES MARCUS T., TOKPAH DAVID P. MORRIS SUSANNAH D.

Abstracts: Research on soil amendment to improve crop productivity in Liberia is limited with less emphasis on rice. To improve on this, a field experiment was therefore carried out at the Central Agricultural Research Institute (CARI), Suakoko, Liberia to improve up land rice yieldunder manures and integrated fertilizers nutrient management practices.The experiment consisted of a factorial Randomized Complete Block Design (FRCBD) with three replications. Field size of 892.5 m2 (15 m x 59.5 m)was used with each plot demarcated as 2 m x 3 m (6 m2). There were 12 treatments such as Control, 100% N120, 0% NPK + 8.1 t cow dung ha-1, 25 NPK + 6.1 t cow dung ha-1, 50% NPK + 4.1 t cow dung ha-1, 75% NPK + 2 t cow dung ha-1, T7: 0% NPK + 5.5 ton poultry manure ha-1 25% NPKS + 3.4 ton ha-1 poultry manure NPK 50% + 2.75 tons ha-1 poultry manure and 75% NPK + 1.4 ton ha-1 poultry manure. An improved upland rice cultivar (NERICA 14) was used as the planting material. At harvest the tallest plant (109.45), maximum grain yield (5.59 tons/ha), and panicle weight (23.25) were found in plot supplied with,NPK 50% + 2.75 tons ha-1 PM. Number of effective tillers per hill (8) were developed in plots imposed with 100% N120 P18 K18. Although the highest biological yield was recorded from PM + MF1 treatment, but statistically similar result were found from 0% NPK + 8.1 t CD ha-1, 50% NPK + 4.1 t CD ha-1 and NPK 50% + 2.75 tons ha-1 PMtreatments. It was obvious that yield of rice can be increased significantly with the judicious use of organic manure with chemical fertilizer.

REVIEW OF INCLUSIVE PLANNING

Authors: SRIJANA KOIRALA

Abstracts: Development is a continuous process and planning is necessary for the managed development. Concept of urban planning was developed to address the needs of increasing urban population for a foreseeable future. Urban planning includes urban design and policies. Policies and theories have the significant impact on determining the direction and approach of planning. Various theories regarding urban planning and development emerged in different timeline. The conventional way of urban planning includes technocrats and governments making decisions on the urban planning and policy. Planning was not taken as a methodology, rather as the end product, till some decades ago. Inclusiveness has been introduced in the scope of urban planning recently. The concept of inclusive urban planning is derived from the integrated development approach for accessible, resilient, affordable and sustainable urban livelihood. Inclusive planning is practiced in many places in local, regional and national level. Inclusive planning is the autonomous way of practicing democracy and respecting the right to equality. The main objective of this paper is to review inclusive planning in global context and national context.

LAND USE/LAND CHANGE DYNAMICS OF KATSINA STATE, NIGERIA.

Authors: IDRIS S, MAHMOOD M.M, JAMES G.K, OLOJO O.O, ISAH A.A, MUSTAPHA S.

Abstracts: The land use and land cover mapping and change dynamics study using satellite remote sensing and GIS techniques has helped in understanding the different forms of changes in our environment and the effect of the changes on the land cover/land use pattern. The aim of this study is to access the quantitative understanding of the land use/land change dynamics in Katsina state from 2006 to 2016. Two satellite images; Nigeria Sat-1 acquired in 2006 and LandSat-8 acquired in 2016 were used for the study. Point samples were taken during fieldwork in Katsina state to help in classification and accuracy assessment. The satellite images were classified into six classes: water body, shrubs/farmland, vegetation, settlement, rock outcrop and bare surface. Land change modeler in Idrisi Selva was used for the change detection analysis to compare the change in Land classes during the period of review for the study. The change matrix result shows loss and gains by different land cover classes and relationship between different classes. As observed during field investigation and analysis, the frontline local government areas, such as Baure, Zango, Mai’adua, Mashi, Kaita, Jibia, Daura and Safana have suffered from deforestation and land degradation, which has resulted in desert encroachment. Climatic and social economic factors are the main drivers of the observed changes. Proper monitoring of the land use will help monitor land degradation which leads to desertification and help in proper planning, usage and management of natural resources that support human life and ecosystem stability.

ASSESSMENT OF FARMERS’ PERCEPTION OF BACTERIAL WILT DISEASE IN SELECTED DISTRICTS IN BONG AND NIMBA COUNTIES LIBERIA

Authors: DANIEL DOKIE TOKPAH, ROLAND NUHU ISSAKA, SIANNEH HARRIS KULLEI, JACOBBINDA KOLLEH

Abstracts: Ralstoniasolanacearumis a casual organism that causes bacterial wilt disease (BWT) of solanaceae cropand a major threat to tomato production causing up to 100% yield loss. The pathogen is widely distributedsoil borne plant pathogenic bacteria which impact negatively in tomato production in Liberia. Surveys on BWT disease were conducted to provide information on incidence and severity, as well as farmers’ perception of the disease using questionnaires. The surveys startedfrom September to October, 2017 in 80 tomato farms within four districts:Gbarlay-Geh, Mentiamahn, Suakoko, and Kpaii, in Nimba and Bong counties of Liberia. In each district, five communities were selected while purposive and stratified sampling methods used. Affected tomato crop showing the symptom of BWT disease were extracted from the field cut at the base suspended in clean glass of distilled water for identification of the pathogen. The surveys revealed that most (74.31%) of the farmers had knowledge on the disease. From the survey most of the tomato farmers were women (54%) and more than 60% of the farmers had basic education. Over 62% of the farmers engaged in tomato production are between the ages of 29-48 years and 87% of the farmers have less than 10years experience. The survey also revealed that over 50% of the farmers obtained their seeds from other farmers and about 60% of them preferred local varieties because of their resistance to BWT. 67% of the farmers recognize BWT as the major constraint in tomato production and the disease is mostly observed by farmers (74%) when the crop is matured and during the wet season (82%). From the survey disease incident and severity varied significantly between districts. The highest incidence and severity of BWT disease were observed at Kpein and Negbeein (100%) in Mentiamahn district and the least in Gayetaryeah in Bong County inKpaii District which showed13.5% incidence and 9.5% severity. In general 60% of the communities showed incidence of BWT of 30% and above and 45% showed severity of 30% and above.

EDUCATION AS BUSINESS: ITS REALISTIC, PRAGMATIC AND PROGRESSIVIST ANGLES

Authors: SABRINA A. RAMOS

Abstracts: This paper tried to examine as to whether or not commercialization of education is more of an upside or of a downside to the involved stakeholders (owner, parents, students, teachers). The proponent fairly looked into the data to come up with a balanced synthesis about the issue. Data were gathered using purposeful sampling for study as design strategy, emphatic neutrality and mindfulness as data collection strategy, and inductive analysis and creative synthesis as analysis strategy. This study assumed that commercialization of education is beneficial to all stakeholders based on the platform of realism, pragmatism and progressivism. The result showed that the stakeholders see commercialized education as both advantageous and disadvantageous taking into consideration the three platforms.

ATTRITION RATE AND PREDICTORS AMONG ADULT PATIENTS RECEIVING ANTIRETROVIRAL THERAPY IN ADAMA HOSPITAL MEDICAL COLLEGE, CENTRAL ETHIOPIA: A RETROSPECTIVE COHORT STUDY DESIGN, 2006 - 2017

Authors: TAMRAT ENDEBU GEBRE, ALEMAYEHU BEKELE

Abstracts: Introduction: Efforts are underway in Ethiopia to achieve the 90:90:90 treatment goals set by the UNAIDS. Patient attrition from the treatment is known that a major challenge to ensure long-term retention. Therefore, this study aimed to assess attrition and it’s predictors among adult patients receiving ART in Adama Hospital Medical College, Ethiopia, from 2006 to 2017. Methods: A retrospective cohort study design was used. Adult patients started ART from January 2006 to December 2017were followed up for 12 years. The statistical analysis was done by using SPSS version 21 statistical software. Descriptive analysis was used present frequencies and mean/median of variables. The Kaplan–Meier survival probability was used to estimate the probability of attrition at different time points. The multivariate Cox-proportional hazard model was used to identify predictors of attrition. Results: A total of 7990 patients were followed and observed for 52,934 person-years. At the end of the follow up period, 1016 attrition due to LTFU or death occurred with an annual incidence density [95% CIs] of 19.2% (18.0–20.4). Younger age, male gender, rural resident, not fully recorded patient address in the follow up form, lower CD4 count at baseline and WHO clinical stages III/IV at ART initiation were predictors of time to attrition. Conclusion: Considerable incidence of attrition from antiretroviral therapy was observed. Therefore, the hospital management and other concerned staffs should aggressively conduct the lost to follow up tracking measures. Beside that targeted interventions to the above predictors can reduce attrition from care and treatment.

DEFORESTATION AND DISINTEGRATION OF HEALTH BELIEFS AND PRACTICES IN NIGERIA

Authors: IKENYEI N. SANDRA

Abstracts: For years, the forests within many communities in Nigeria were protected by taboos. These taboos were instituted to preserve strategic forests because of their economic value. This indigenous practice prescribed the wholesome and sustainable use of the forest resources. However, as time progressed, the taboos and the use of the forest in regulating health and social order became untenable with the onset of industrial scale deforestation which commenced in 1940. While researchers have documented economic gains and pains of deforestation, there have been few studies on effects of deforestation on indigenous beliefs and practices that protects the forest, thereby, maintaining health and social order. Thus, this work examined deforestation, its disintegrative impact on indigenous beliefs and practices that once sustained health and social order in Sapele, Delta State, Nigeria. Ecological theory provided the framework for explanations of variables. From five major communities that make up Sapele local government area, total of 369 participants were randomly selected: Sapele (91), Elume (85), Amukpe (71), Ozum-Okokporo (61) and Ugborhen (61). The questionnaire collected data on the use of forest in regulating health and social continuity. Five focus group discussions comprising eight participants each, 10 key informants among household heads/traditionalists and 15 in-depth interviews with chiefs/forest custodians were conducted. Quantitative data were analysed using probit regression model at 0.05 level of significance. Qualitative data were content analysed. The mean age of respondents was 52±1.0 years. More than half (55.0%) were male. While 67.0% were Christians, 15.0% were traditionalists and 13.0% were Muslims. Majority (90.0%) endorsed forest and related beliefs as important for maintaining health and social order. The forest remains a significant determinant of beliefs (x2=.27), practices (x1=2) and wellness (x3=.2). Indigenous health practices carried out in the forest included the performance of ritual cleansing, oath taking, invocation of cosmic forces, isolation, exorcism, shaming, fortification with forest relics, restriction of woman under menstruation, conferment of regalia/insignia of authority, festivities, rites of passage, spiritual and funerary rites-internment of endemic bodies in the forest. However, 90.2% indicated perceptions of ongoing changes to these beliefs and practices.

AUTONOMOUS VEHICLES: ETHICAL DILEMMAS

Authors: MAULIK PATEL, RUSHIT DAVE, EVELYN R SOWELLS BOONE

Abstracts: With the rapid urban development, sustainable, reliable and safe transportation solutions are required, to satisfy the demand and minimize potentially negative impacts. The field of autonomous vehicles (AVs) has got lot of attention among media, researchers, politicians and industry since its introduction. It can fundamentally change road transportation and improve quality of life. Although, on one hand the benefits of AVs can bring revolution in transportation field and can solve many engineering problems. On the other hand, there are some serious concerns about social and ethical problems such as so-called trolley problem. In certain situations, AVs forced to take some decision where harming someone cannot be avoided, i.e. whether it protect its passenger or to protect other road users. Therefore, it needs proper ethical guideline and crash-optimization algorithm to make decision in certain situations and so we believe applied software engineering ethical approach can be the solution to these problems. In this paper, we will explore the regulative instruments, standards, legal and moral responsibilities of AVs to act and make decision in unavoidable situations.

THE EFFECTS OF MANIPULATIVE AND VISUAL MODELS IN CONCEPTUALIZING FRACTIONS

Authors: DAYAME, ARNEL M.

Abstracts: This study is all about the effect of manipulative and visual models in conceptualizing fractions of the four randomized schools in Cebu City. This study utilized quantitative research specifically Solomon four group designs. Thus, every student in a classroom comprehends and reacts to a mass instruction contrastingly and the instruction was more powerful for certain students than others. Along these lines a few students will require intercession which was the manipulative and visual models in conceptualizing fractions. In this study the researcher noticed that student’s needs to have the intervention like the manipulative and visual models wherein intercession was the extra instruction and exercises expected to meet an understudy's individual conditions and needs. A significant segment in powerful intercession is the determination of techniques and instructional materials. By using the Solomon four group design, the researcher come up with the findings that when the students undergo intervention there was a great possibilities to improve the students’ performance in terms of conceptualizing fraction by the used of manipulative and visual models. The researcher found out also that in order for the students to increase their academic performance, this can be done through introducing students to a number of methods for increasing conceptual understanding, such as the used of representations, models and various manipulative.

EFFECTS OF SINGLE AND COMBINED ANTIOXIDANT VITAMINS ON GROWING PIG PERFORMANCE AND PORK QUALITY

Authors: JOHNSON, N. C., POPOOLA, S. O., OWEN, O. J.

Abstracts: The effects of the pharmaceutical levels of single and combined antioxidant vitamins: A, C, AC, AE and CE on growing pig performance, pork quality in respect to malondialhyde (MDA) serum concentrations and drip loss were investigated. 36 pigs of average body weight (BW) of 6 ± 0.79 were randomly divided into one of six experimental groups. The animals received similar commercial diet for one week after which they were offered their experimental diets at 5% of their BW as: To (control diet – contained vitamins at their basal levels, TA (200mg of vitamin A), TC (200mg of vitamin C), TAC (100mg of vitamin A + 100mg of vitamin C), TAE (100mg of vitamin A + 100mg of vitamin E) and TCE (100mg of vitamin C + 100mg of vitamin E)/kg of diet, respectively for 4 weeks. Animals on the antioxidant vitamins, especially those on the combined vitamins gained at significant (P < 0.05) better rates compared with the control group. Similarly, the feed efficiency (FE) of the vitamin diets were significantly (P < 0.05) superior compared with control despite the similar (P > 0.05) feed intakes. Furthermore,the vitamin diets particularly the combined vitamin diets demonstrated lower MDA concentrations as well as lower drip loss (P < 0.05) compared with the control group. It was concluded that antioxidant vitamin combinations improved pig performance and pork quality by significantly reduced MDA levels and drip loss.

A NOVEL APPROACH FOR PLANNING AN AEROCITY (AEROTROPOLIS) IN NEGOMBO-KATUNAYAKE PERI-URBAN REGION

Authors: E DINETH J PERERA, P K S MAHANAMA, PRASANNA GAMAGE

Abstracts: Airports have historically positioned in the periphery of the cities to be used as a global gateway to the city thereby mitigating the spatial disconnection and become a major economic hub in economic development. By being so, has hampered the substantial future economic development. With the emerging twenty-first-century aviation economic era, airports become strategic economic hubs in new cities. Urbanization is the diffusion of the influence of urban centers and to the rural hinterland via peri-urban. It is often argued that the urban and economic centers such as airports been highly vulnerable to chaotic land use changes, which are not compatible or not in best use. Significant growth of Asia-Pacific aviation business in next few decades and position of Sri Lanka and its socio-political stability require to reconceive the Airport city as a new urban form through expanding the Bandaranaike International Airport (BIA), Colombo, Sri Lanka towards a sub-metro region of Negombo-Katunayake metro-region. The analysis guided by the notion of the integrated airport region that ultimately requires a rapprochement between the airport master plan and broader urban planning strategies. The research paper explains, how and in what scenarios been capitalized in the processes of applying this novel approach (Aerotropolis) to BIA centric Negombo-Katunayake Metro sub-region. Ultimately, it explains its complexity and market-oriented model, which was redesigned, and the adaptation methodology in order to achieve the long-term sustainability of the new urban form.

RELATIONSHIP OF ETHICAL CULTURE OF ORGANIZATION AND STAFF MOTIVATION IN LINE WITH THE CORPORATE PEDAGOGY IDEAS

Authors: DR. SAID OMAR

Abstracts: The article discusses the relationship of ethical culture in the sphere of business and educational institutions and staff motivation. These components have a direct impact on the financial well-being and effective development of organization. The author considers the motivation in line with the intentional approach by relating the process of motivation to target installations of a person determining his/her behavior. Ethical culture permeates the entire spectrum of corporate education, during which there is a corporate upbringing, contributing to the identification of workers with their profession and the organization as a whole. Experience of Israeli enterprises and educational institutions shows that if there is a strong influence of ethical culture, there is a high enough level of integrity in the organization. The article presents the results of two studies regarding the relationship of employees to various measures aimed at improving the ethics of employees, in particular, to the Code of Ethics. According to the author, a Code of Ethics by itself is not enough to solve the problems of increasing motivation in the organization. There should be the targeted training in ethical behavior for the staff of organizations.

MANAGING CRISIS: BEST PRACTICES OF PUBLIC INFORMATION OFFICERS IN HIGHER EDUCATION INSTITUTIONS

Authors: BUELLAH MAY P. CONVENTO

Abstracts: This research paper aims to find out the most challenging crisis encountered by certain Higher Education Institutions and how this affects the officials, internal stakeholders, and external stakeholders. Moreover, it also focuses in analyzing the response of the respective Public Information Offices in terms of time pressure, response constraints, control issues, and threat level concerns. To achieve the said aims, this study utilized the qualitative analysis to get the perspectives of people who have a partaking role and have enough experience in the said field. With this, the researcher also performed an in-depth interview with concerned individuals in each chosen Higher Education Institutions who are Dr. Anna Ruby P. Gapasin – Polytechnic University of the Philippines, Dr. Nicolo B. Velasco – Bulacan State University, Mr. Johannes Badillo – De La Salle University, Dr. Vanessa Mae Castillo – Batangas State University, and Ms. Alyssa Mae Azanza – Colegio de San Juan de Letran – Calamba. After a keen study, it showed that the crisis faced by the mentioned HEIs were vandalism/student protests, off-campus tragedy, black propaganda, health crisis, and sex scandal and that these crises directly affected both internal and external stakeholders as well as their reputation. The studied HEIs responded differently as each crisis has unique priorities and factors to consider such as control issues, threat level concerns, time pressure, and response option constraints. DLSU, PUP, BulSU acted immediately while Letran and BSU took a day or a week to respond to the issue showing how well they responded to the time pressure. The HEIs faced response constraints such as budget for PUP and prioritizing the victims’ family and the survivors for the BulSU. On the other hand, DLSU had all the budget they need, BSU exerted their best efforts to solve the issue, and Letran refused to respond in the first place which caused all of them no constraint. In controlling the issues, PUP and BulSU had a difficult time with how the media angled their news, and that BulSU had no existing PIO. Moreover, BSU faced the challenge that they were just appointed when they faced the problem and Letran who had a difficult time with the spreading of the rumors and the video online, unlike DLSU who experienced no problems because of their openness to inquiries. Overall, the HEIs who participated in the study confessed that the crisis they experienced had a significant effect on their reputation, rating it 8 out of 10 without denying the fact that their university has learned something from the experience. The chosen HEIs utilized stonewalling which is not always the answer to every crisis for it might tamper the credibility of institutions, assigning the president as the spokesperson which is good for consistency of statement but may also be a disadvantage for the HEIs, grassroots approach, communication campaign, prioritizing during fatal accidents to root out the problem fast, using media connections which is very useful to reach a wider reach of audience, following protocol, and providing a counter propaganda. After addressing all the factors, the study showed that the best practices of PIOs being proactive with their campaign and connecting well with their audience, thinking fast and forming a de facto PIO to address the crisis, utilizing the grassroots approach by prioritizing the needs of the affected stakeholders, doing a comprehensive analysis of the issue, and stonewalling to prolong the progress of the rumor.

ANALYSIS OF MATHEMATICS TESTS IN PUBLIC TEACHER TRAINING COLLEGES IN MALAWI WITH RESPECT TO HIGHER ORDER THINKING SKILLS

Authors: LUSUNGU MAKWAKWA JERE, ATHANASIUS LUNJEBE

Abstracts: Bloom’s taxonomy has been around since 1956 and was later revised by Anderson (2001). Since Bloom’s is widely used in Malawian teaching curricula especially in testing and evaluating students’ performance, it is important to critically analyze lecturers’ set test using Blooms taxonomy.The objectives of the study were to evaluate mathematics question papers set by lecturers in public teacher training colleges with respect to higher order thinking skill as proposed by Bloom’s taxonomy and to explore mathematics lecturers’ awareness of Bloom’s taxonomy.A study was conducted in three public teacher training colleges in Malawi. Two colleges are in the central region of the country and one is found in the southern region. Colleges were selected using simple random sampling method. Nineteen (19) lecturers who teach mathematics from the department of science and mathematics were asked to complete a self-administered questionnaire. Excel was used to draw graphs and pie charts during analysis of responses from the questionnaire .The second part of data was collected by analyzing term 2 mathematics question papers from three TTCs. Each question was analyzed and categorized according to Bloom’s taxonomy. A total of 231 questions were examined, sourced from 5 papers. These questions were independently reviewed. Data analysis was performed using IBM SPSS version 21.0. The chi square was used to compare the proportion of HOTS against LOTS.The findings revealed that all lectures (n=19) have knowledge on Bloom’s taxonomy of cognitive. They all agreed that they also follow it when setting tests. The findings on the analysis of question papers showed that all levels of Bloom’s taxonomy were used in the three colleges. There were significant differences (p < 0.05) in the proportional of exam questions at lower, medium and higher level of Bloom’s taxonomy. Thirty eight percent (38%) of the questions aimed at lower level; medium level questions dominated at 49% and few questions were at higher level (13%), which shows that most of the questions were at medium level of Bloom’s taxonomy. Questions were fairly distributed across the six levels of Bloom’s taxonomy, although the distribution was not equal. All levels were covered. Majority of questions were set at medium and higher level which constituted 62%.Lectures should be encouraged to also ask more questions on higher level especially synthesis and evaluation.Principals should intensify CPD on the table of specification (also known as a test blueprint). This can help to come up with proportional questions across the six levels. A test blueprint defines and precisely outlines the number (or proportion) of test questions to be allocated to each major and minor content area and how many (what proportion) of these questions will be designed to assess specific cognitive knowledge level [9].A similar study should be done in all public Teacher Training Colleges. This study concentrated on mathematics question papers only. It can be extended to other subjects at these public TTCs.

THE BACTERIOLOGICAL QUALITY OF WATER FROM ALTERNATIVE SOURCES IN BUKAVU, DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF CONGO

Authors: GERVAIS RUGENGE BAGUMA, MOISE BAZIROGWERHE BAMBONERERE

Abstracts: Bukavu, the capital city of the South Kivu province, is a growing city due to rampant demographics and rural exodus aggravated by rural insecurity. With around 1 million inhabitants, it faces a decade of water scarcity exacerbated in the dry season following the unability of the state company to provide drinking water to the whole city. Households draw drinking water from sources below the neighborhoods, in Lake Kivu or in the Ruzizi River, with the consequences of the high prevalence of waterborne diseases including cholera. This study was conducted in order to determine the bacteriological quality of water from these sources and the contamination factors. In may 2018. water samples were collected from 49/76 existing sources selected at random. The analysis was conducted in the light of the WHO guidelines on water quality. Samples were collected in Whirl Pack bags and analyzed in the Panzi General Hospital laboratory. Total forms of Coli were isolated and enumerated using membrane filtration technique and growth on the membrane lauric sulphate (MLSB) broth while the MacConkey broth was used for isolation of Escherichia coli, and the TCBs Agar for the isolation of the Vibrio cholerae. The results show that water from almost all the alternative sources in Bukavu is unsafe for drinking because they are contaminated by Escherichia coli (94%) and vibrio cholerae (22.4%).The risk factors for contamination are anarchic constructions, undeveloped and unprotected sources from human or animal fecal material. To cope with this, the provincial government and its partners should intensify awareness on the need to boil or purify water from these sources before consumption and consider the development of some sources while waiting for a definitive solution.

INTEGRATION OF SPATIAL HETEROGENEITIES IN HYDROTEL FOR MODELING THE HYDROLOGICAL FUNCTIONING OF AGNéBY SUB-WATERSHED AT AGBOVILLE (CôTE D’IVOIRE)

Authors: TCHIMOU VINCENT ASSOMA, GNANGUI CHRISTIAN ADON, SEKOUBA OULARé, SéGBé ISMAILA KONé

Abstracts: This study aims to modeling the superficial flows of the Agneby sub-watershed at Agboville by integrating spatial heterogeneities into the distributed model of HYDROTEL. The remote sensing data (DEM, ETM+ image of Lansat-7), soils types and hydrographic network are compiled in a geospatial database integrated into the GIS PHYSITEL. It determines Relatively Homogeneous Hydrologic Units (RHHU) that are integrated with the spatial variables of the surface states (land use and textural classes of soils) for physiographic discretization. This physiographic database and the daily hydrometeorological data (flow, rainfall and temperature) are integrated in HYDROTEL for the simulation of the hydrological process of the sub-watershed during the period 1983 to 2006. Calibration of the parameters of the model use the flows of 2000 followed by the temporal validation of the years 1997 and 2004. It reflects a fairly good reproducibility of observed and calculated flows with Nash criteria ranging from 0.61 to 0.70. These precision values reflect a good performance of the model and its applicability in a humid tropical environment. The hydrological processes are fairly well reproduced with a few exceptions, characterized by peaks of overestimation and underestimation of flows due to the occurrence of rainfall decreases due to climate variability and storage and intake structures. The parameters adjusted in the model can be used to explain the overall functioning of the hydrosystem of the studied sub-watershed.

HIGHER EDUCATION IN SEARCH OF COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE: GLOBALIZATION, TECHNOLOGY AND E-LEARNING

Authors: ROBERT E. WALLER, PAMELA A. LEMOINE, EVAN G. MENSE, MICHAEL D. RICHARDSON

Abstracts: Technology, globalization, and electronic learning make the business of higher education more complicated and competitive each day. Innovation and change in global university instruction require inventive technology in response to a knowledge economy where students are engaged in rapid innovative technology adaptation required by a constantly changing world. In contrast, instruction has historically been contained on campus, using face-to-face instruction. But, as the end of the second decade of the twenty-first century unfolds, significant changes are being undertaken in global universities to accommodate the needs of more students, different students, and challenged students by using e-learning. Global university instruction has failed to keep up with the latest in technological and pedagogical innovations during the past twenty years. As a result transformative learning technology has forced most of the global higher education community to examine if not implement technological applications for instruction and delivery, often categorized as e-learning.

DETECTION AND CLASSIFICATION OF DIABETIC RETINOPATHY USING ADAPTIVE BOOSTING AND ARTIFICIAL NEURAL NETWORK

Authors: ASHWIN DHAKAL; LAXMI PRASAD BASTOLA; SUBARNA SHAKYA

Abstracts: The disorders identified with retina of the eye such as: Diabetic Retinopathy (DR), age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD), Glaucoma, etc. can cause visual impairments. The retinal fundus pictures of the patients can be acquired with a computerized fundus camera. It can then be used as machine learning application against the manual technique for the detection and prevention of DR. In this research, the retinal fundus image obtained from Himalaya Eye Hospital Pokhara, MESSIDOR database and EyePACS are used for the detection of DR along with its severity label. In the preprocessing phase, the images are first converted to grayscale images. Histogram equalization technique is performed to adjust image intensity in order to enhance contrast. Median filtering, a non-linear digital filtering technique, is implemented to remove noise present in the image. It too helps to improve the result for further processing. Blood vessels are detected and optic discs are identified and removed. Exudates are segmented for further processing. Finally, selected features are extracted for classification. The classification by Adaptive Boosting (AdaBoost) classifier using selected features achieved precision: 0.642, sensitivity: 0.870, accuracy: 0.620 and F1-score: 0.739. While the Artificial Neural Network achieved an accuracy of 98.43% for the detection of Diabetic retinopathy and 84.21% for the severity classification as stage 0: No-DR, 1: Mild-DR, 2: Moderate-DR, 3: Severe-DR and 4: Proferative-DR.
