RECLAMATION OF HEAVY METAL CONTAMINATED SOIL BY USING BIOCHAR AS SOIL CONDITIONER

Authors: NYO NYO MAR, LIANXI HUANG, ZHONGZHEN LIU

Abstracts: Increasing population density and scarce funds available for environmental restoration gearing to explore and speed-up the low-cost and ecologically sustainable remedial options to restore contaminated lands so as to reduce the associated risks, make the water and land resources available for agricultural production, enhance food security and scale down the land tenure problems. Biochar is a carbon negative, charcoal based, soil amendment that can be designed to help reclaim and improve marginal soils by increasing soil water holding capacity and enhancing fertility, while also generating high-value renewable energy co-products during its production. In this study, the soil samples collected form a field which is assumed to be contaminated with various heavy metals (esp: Cd and Pb) was conducted to reclaim by using biochar from difference raw material sources (coconut shell, peanut shell, wheat straw, rice husk and biogas byproduct) with the same dosages. Biochar from coconut shell was used in three difference particle sizes 30-60 mesh, 60-80 mesh and 80-200 mesh. The experiment was carried out in pot trial under nursery house with four replicas. Soil organic matter analysis, pH, cation exchange capacity of soil, N, P, K assimilation and incorporated heavy metal concentration from both soil and plant samples were tested in order to know the effect of amended biochar. The purpose of this research is to evaluate the effectiveness of biochar from difference raw material sources to reduce levels of heavy metal in the soil through the analysis of their status and sorption behavior on biochar. The research was conducted at Guangdong Academy of Agricultural Science, Guangzhou, China.

Authors: PRIMA R. ARCALLANA, JONATHAN O. ETCUBAN, AAHRON M. DINAUANAO, PHILIP JOEL DR. MACUGAY

Abstracts: Recognizing the sorts of mathematical content that are most prescient of students' long haul learning is fundamental for enhancing mathematical development for students in the developing countries. The study used a descriptive correlational method of research using a modified division-issued individual student profile questionnaire, a standardized mathematical attitudinal scale, and a secondary data from the High School Registrar were utilized to gather the data. The Grade 8 high school students of Apas National High School, Cebu City, Philippines were the respondents of the study. Frequency, simple percentage, weighted mean, Chi-square test of independence, and t-test were used to treat the gathered data. The findings revealed that there were significant relationships between age of the respondents and their grades in Grade-7 mathematics as well as their attitudes towards mathematics. It was concluded that students’ performance in mathematics in a public high school is influenced by their age, previous grades in math, and attitudes towards mathematics. The researchers recommend that the proposed action be implemented and monitored. Further, they suggest that another investigation is conducted to confirm its preliminary findings.

Authors: JONATHAN O. ETCUBAN, LEO T. BATILES, MA CRISTINA B. MONTE, ARNEL D. ARPON, AAHRON M. DINAUANAO, PHILIP JOEL DR. MACUGAY

Abstracts: Peacekeeping is the essential function of the police and police visibility is one of the main thrusts of this peacekeeping activity. Without this peacekeeping activity, it would be desperate for the police visibility may not work in addressing criminality in all situations. It is needed to maintain the harmonies living of the residents in the community. This study determined the performance of Village Peacekeeping Action Team (BPAT) about crime prevention of selected villages in Cebu City. The researchers employed a descriptive type of research characterized by gathering data on BPAT performance on crime prevention in the identified villages in Cebu, namely Luz, Ermita, Tisa, Guadalupe, and Tinago. Also, the study was employed by the five police stations of which these villages were under. The community, village officials, and the police officers were the respondents of the study. They were advised to answer the researcher made questionnaire. The gathered data were statistically treated using the weighted mean. The investigation revealed that on the deterrence of crime, apprehension of criminals, drug demand and supply reduction, and identification of dependents for rehabilitation the BPAT performance were rated effective by the respondents. Also, the study revealed that on the problems encountered by the BPAT in crime prevention, the drug demand and supply reduction, as well as the identification of dependents for rehabilitation, were moderately serious. It was concluded that the police in the community is a gesture of PNP's commitment to pursue a productive community partnership in support of sustained village-based anti-crime strategy in collaboration with the BPAT by intensifying public safety information campaign through regular police bulletins on criminal modus operandi. The researchers recommended strengthening the knowledge and skills of the BPAT in identifying the drug dependents for rehabilitation in the community through training and seminars.

FACTORS RELATED TO THE MARITIME PRE-APPRENTICESHIP PHASE OF A UNIVERSITY

Authors: MARIA SALUD M. DE LOS SANTOS, JONATHAN O. ETCUBAN, ERLINDA P. BARCELO

Abstracts: A maritime apprenticeship is an arrangement of preparing intended to get ready cadets for skilled occupations, and comprising of a mix of at work preparing with skilled excursion laborers and paid related classroom direction. At the point when a student has finished the predefined number of hours of apprenticeship preparing, he turns into a confirmed talented sailor. This study meant to distinguish the variables identified with the oceanic pre-apprenticeship stage as the reason for proposing a program. The study employed the descriptive method using surveys and interviews with key informants. A three-set researcher made questionnaire was constructed based on the apprenticeship program guidelines, suggestions, and opinions provided by the institutions’ superintendents and STOs and the apprenticeship crewing managers of selected shipping companies. The gathered data were treated using simple percentage, weighted mean, rank, Spearman Rank Order Coefficient, and ANOVA. The study revealed that key informants have the same perceptions of the skills and competencies needed to qualify applicants for an apprenticeship. It was concluded that the apprentice mates, shipboard training officers, and crewing managers considered certain factors related to their qualifying for apprenticeship and that they encountered problems along the way. The researchers strongly recommend the implementation of the learning program to improve procedures for applications.

CLOTTING AND GEL SEPARATOR PROPERTY OF EXTRACT FROM THE ROOTS OF DAMONG MARIA (ARTEMISIA VULGARIS) WITH ORYZA SATIVA

Authors: IANA CHRISTINE DR. MACUGAY, PHILIP JOEL DR. MACUGAY, JONATHAN O. ETCUBAN, AAHRON M. DINAUANAO

Abstracts: The root extract of Artemisia vulgaris with Oryza sativa promotes the blood clotting. Due to its protein-binding property, it could participate in thickening effects of the blood. With the emerging need for low cost-effective blood coagulant and gel separator, the researchers realized the urge in developing an alternative clot activator and gel separator from the root extract of Artemisia vulgaris with Oryza sativa. The study determined the effectiveness of clotting and gel separator property of the root extract Artemisia vulgaris with Oryza sativa using the normal human blood samples. An experimental approach to research method was used. The researchers were able to isolate the Oryza sativa starch and the root extract of Artemisia vulgaris and were subjected to different physical and phytochemical tests to confirm the presence of tannin. The participants were undergoing 10 to 12 hours of fasting before blood collection. The blood collected using the commercially prepared Serum Separator Tube and the alternative clot activator and gel separator made from the root extract Artemisia vulgaris with Oryza sativa. The data gathered from the participants were analyzed using mean and ANOVA. The study revealed that on the different concentrations of the Artemisia vulgaris root Extract the 25%, 50%, 75% and 100% has significant effect on the blood clotting time, and there are substantial variations on the blood clotting time using different concentrations of the Artemisia vulgaris root extracts and the commercially prepared Serum Separator Tube. It was concluded that varying levels of the root extract of Artemisia vulgaris do not affect the analysis of the Blood analytes. The researchers recommend to chemically isolating the specific component, pure tannin, from the roots of Artemisia vulgaris using the other methods for the extraction of tannin and other components to determine other components of the Artemisia vulgaris that may improve the clotting time and the gel separator.
