FORMABILITY PREDICTIONS OF SHEET METAL PARTS DURING PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT PHASES

Authors: SOMNATH CHAVAN

Abstracts: Home appliance industry spends millions of dollars for Formability testing of new developing sheet metal components. Current product Development cycle can be tedious and expensive procedures, particularly when physical prototypes are required on quick basis. When a tangible model is involved, the components must be designed, built, tested, and then fixed accordingly. With Simulation aided development cycle, product moves straight from design to analysis, and then finally to build. Sheetmetal Manufacturing Simulation allows product design teams to view, common defects such as splits, wrinkles, springback and material thinning, all before manufacturing ever takes place. This paper outlines the methodology used for correlation of Sheet Metal parts formability. To validate simulation model, Formability check of freestanding cooktop performed after actual Manufacturing. In Simulation Approach, in order to align well with the exact solution, minute details are taken into consideration such as tonnage and process parameters such as Blank Holder Force, die corner radius, friction coefficient, and die clearance. Simulation methodology results compared with metrology lab data and correlation level analysed. A good correlation was observed from test with simulation data. Correlation levels in Free Standing Range cooktop product had agreement above 94%.The correlation performed with thinning and formability parameters like cracks Or splits, Inadequate stretch. These correlation data points will help organisations to designing new components and digital exploring new design in terms of material variation and geometry variations. This proven model helps to arrive at appropriate decision for selection of optimized and better sheet metal Design.

THE DEVELOPMENT OF A GENDER-SENSITIVITY TEACHING TEST

Authors: JEROMIL O. ENOC, RAY FERDINAND M. GAGANI

Abstracts: The role and importance of teachers in achieving a gender-sensitive school environment are indispensable. That is why gender sensitivity training and awareness campaigns have been rigorously conducted especially among teacher education institutions. However, the lack of a useful tool that would measure gender-sensitive instruction among teachers has become a problem. Hence, this study aims to develop an instrument that would assess gender sensitivity in teaching. Constructs and indicators of gender-sensitive education were developed by a group of focal persons in gender, utilizing reviews from current literature and research, thus producing ninety-six signs of gender-sensitive teaching. After peer and expert content validation, the indicators were trimmed down to eighteen. Then the instrument was pilot-tested for factor analysis contributing three factors and field-tested for internal consistency using Cronbach’s alpha. The final form of the tool was then developed after passing these tests.

DIFFERENTIATED INSTRUCTIONAL PRACTICES BY JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL SCIENCE TEACHERS

Authors: NORRIE E.GAYETA, ELLIE ROSE C. RAMOS

Abstracts: Goodwin [1] described that classrooms are full of diverse learners thus teachers should use diverse teaching methods in class. This may be best addressed through the use of varied strategies that can help in the attainment of the teaching goals and objectives. Along this concern, this study aimed to identify differentiated instructional practices utilized by science teachers in order to reach the needs of diverse learners in the classrooms today. This study determined the available and accessible learning infrastructures in support of differentiated instruction and the extent of utilization of the differentiated instructional practices. The researcher also determined the relationship between the availability and accessibility of learning infrastructures to the extent of utilization of instructional practices. The study used the descriptive method of research using a researcher-made questionnaire. The respondents were 293 public junior high school science teachers in the Division of Batangas, SY 2017-2018. Weighted mean and Pearson’s-product moment correlation-coefficient were the statistical tools applied in treating the data gathered. Based on the findings, the use of diverse materials and teaching methods in class, and continuous assessment and adjustment of lessons to meet students’ needs were the most common differentiated instructional practices utilized by the science teachers. The learning infrastructures in support to the utilization of differentiated instruction were often available and accessible. Results indicated that there is no significant relationship between the availability and accessibility of learning infrastructure to the utilization of differentiated instructional practices. The study recommended that science teachers must try other differentiated instructional practices particularly in responding on students’ readiness, instructional needs, interest and learning preferences.

Authors: NARTO SUDIN, LUSSIANA ETP

Abstracts: Enterprise architecture (EA) Information system (IS) is a strategic one that is used to improve the quality of service of an institution, by harmonizing organizational business processes and information technology. Technology that is developing very fast and is widely used by people today is Android. This research involves SI which can be used in the Android operating system for the management of an organization. The purpose of this study is to design the EA IS model using a TOGAF framework that analyzes the overall search and loan business processes carried out by members and librarians. Then the EA model is used as a guide to making an Android-based information system. Data collected are primary and secondary data in the library. Data is then analyzed using a Value chain. The results of the value chain analysis were analyzed again using Togaf ADM. The results of the analysis are EA models which include business architecture models, data architectural models, and application architecture models which consist of member registration processes, search processes, loan transaction processes and return transaction processes. The EA model is then used as a guide to making an Android-based library management application with an online database. The benefit of implementing an online database-based mobile application is the reduced time spent on borrowing by members because the process can be done online. Likewise, the time to respond to online borrowing is faster and easier, because the process can be done using an Android smartphone.

STRATEGIES FOR ENHANCING THE CONTRIBUTION OF GEMSTONE MINING IN DEVELOPING COUNTRIES

Authors: DR. S KAMBANI

Abstracts: The principal objective of this study is to suggest strategies for enhancing the contribution of gemstone mining to economies of developing countries (DCs). There are three major reasons for the study, namely, (i) the sub-sector’s apparent significant economic potential, (ii) a conspicuous lack of scientific literature on aspects of mining, processing and marketing, and (iii) the unique position held by gemstone mining in the world’s mining industry. The study focusses on five principal areas. First, the interrelationship between minerals and economic development is discussed. The special role and potential held by small scale mining (SSM) in contributing to the development objectives of DCs, is emphasized. Second, a review of the international gemstone industry is conducted. The high unit value of gemstones, the elevated geological risk, special mining techniques and complex marketing mechanisms, places the industry in a unique position within the world’s mining sector. A strong positive correlation is found to exist between the consumption of gemstones and the GNP per capita. The consumption is also found to set in only above a certain level of GNP per capita which provides an indication of where gemstone markets are. Thirdly, a detailed evaluation of policies and sub-sector constraints is presented. It is established that the sub-sector’s constraints are largely a direct result of an unsupportive policy environment. While aiming at improving the total operational business environment of the economy, policies must emphasize the role of free markets systems, state ownership of mines and control of marketing must be limited to improve the sub-sector’s productivity and efficiency. Effective mineral resource policies as reflected by sound mineral legislation as well as high quality of institutional framework support, is also a pre-condition to the successful development of the sub-sector. Lastly. Resulting from the investigation of policies and sub-sector constraints, options for the removal of constraints are identified. The identified options are then combined into a general development strategy model for the sub-sector.

ON ETHICS AND LEADERSHIP: LEVELS OF TRANSFORMATIONAL LEADERSHIP AND OCCUPATIONAL WORK ETHIC OF EDUCATIONAL MIDDLE MANAGERS OF DE LA SALLE LIPA, PHILIPPINES

Authors: JOSEPH ANGELOU I. NG, PHD

Abstracts: The success of any organization depends in part on the kind of leadership its manager has – not only on the style of leadership he portrays, but also on the ethical foundation that this leadership style is built. It is for the reason that when leadership in an organization is assessed, ethics becomes an equally important dimension to consider. This study looked into the transformational leadership level and occupational work ethic of middle managers from the college department in De La Salle Lipa, one of the leading educational institutions in the CALABARZON region of the Philippines. A descriptive method of research was utilized. Bass’ Model of Transformational Leadership and Petty and Hill’s Work Ethic Model were used as the theoretical frameworks. Items adapted from the Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire (MLQ) and the Occupational Work Ethic Inventory (OWEI) comprised the data gathering instrument. Weighted mean and Pearson’s correlation coefficient were the statistical tools used. Findings revealed that majority of the participants were females, middle-aged, married, have acquired a master’s degree and have worked as educators for 11 to 15 years. They have moderately high levels of transformational leadership and occupational work ethic. Transformational leadership was found to be significantly related to occupational work ethic. No statistically significant difference was noted in both transformational leadership and occupational work ethic based on profile components. These results have become instrumental in devising an action plan which recommended strategies to enhance the work ethic and leadership skills of educational middle managers in the said school.

AGORFORESTRY AND POVERTY REDUCTION IN CAMEROON: THE CASE STUDY OF MANYU DIVISION

Authors: ACHU FRIDA NJIEI, ISAAC R. TCHOUAMO, SOCPA ANTOINE

Abstracts: This study was conducted in Manyu divison where human activities have been responsible for the disappearance of forest lands thus possing difficulties to indigenous communities who depend on forest resources as means of livelihood. To replace sources of livelihood from the disappearing forest, most communities in Manyu Division of the South West Region of Cameroon have resorted to vigorous research for alternative means of livelihood formally obtained from the forests. Growing scarcity of forest products used for food, medincine and income generation has led to domestication to replace resources which were formally obtained from the forest. Domestication of these resources provides an aveune to increase their production and growing market demands for the products. This study examines the contribution of agroforestry to poverty alleviation among indigenous populations who formally depended on forest resources as means of livelihood. Information was obtained from eleven randomly selected villages producing a variety of agroforestry products through domestication while respondents were identified through snowball sampling procedure. Data collected for the study were primary and secondary while qualitative and quantative method were used in anaylses of the findings. According to the study agroforesty can significantly contribute to poverty reduction in Manyu division if an enabling enviroment backed by infrastrcture can be provided to actors of this domain of agriculture.

MANUAL THERAPY INTERVENTIONS FOR CARPAL TUNNEL SYNDROME: A REVIEW

Authors: N.D.P.U. NAKANDALA

Abstracts: Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is a debilitating condition which affects majority of the middle aged people in the community. This condition is predominant in females than the males. The condition may be affecting the patient’s single hand (unilateral) or both hands (bilateral). The functional outcomes are very poor and patient may be deteriorating psychologically as well. Signs and symptoms of the CTS can be varied from mild to moderate to severe. This includes numbness or paresthesia along the distribution of the median nerve of hand, pain, atrophy of muscles, reduced hand grip strength etc. The people who are experiencing mild or moderate symptoms usually seek for conservative therapies including elctro therapeuatic modalities and manual therapy techniques. When the condition becomes chronic, the concern is more towards the surgical approaches that involves the carpal tunnel release and thereby releasing the median nerve compression. But majority of the patients with CTS are reluctant to follow the surgical interventions. This is mainly due to economic problems and secondary complications of the surgery. Therefore the evaluation of the effectiveness of the conservative therapies should be a major concern which are cost effective and lack of secondary complications. Many research have been conducted to see the efficacy of various conservative therapies. This includes electrotherapeutic modalities, manual therapy interventions, oral supplements and medications, wrist immobilizations such as with splints so on. Among all the aforementioned therapies, manual therapy interventions alone are known to be more effective in treating CTS. There are various manual techniques with primary focus on reducing the compression on median nerve and thereby inducing the optimum gliding of the nerve in the carpal tunnel. This is done by stretching the adhesions developed between the median nerve and the surrounding structures, removing the myofascial restrictions, improving the pliability and flexibility of the flexor tendons by eliminating the inflammation of the tendon sheaths. In summary this review focus on research which are conducted to evaluate the efficacy of manual therapy interventions in treating the CTS. Since a combination of various techniques is more advantageous than a single treatment alone, emphasis should be given to develop a protocol including manual therapy techniques with other conservative modalities in rehabilitating the patients with CTS.

HOME-ADVANTAGE DECISION-MAKING: EXPERIENCES OF SOCCER REFEREES AT THE 23RD GUSA GAMES

Authors: MICHAEL AGYEI

Abstracts: Soccer teams seem to win most of their matches when they compete at home compared with when they compete away from home. This is partly attributable to the home-advantage decisions referees’ award to the home teams. This study used qualitative methods to explore the views of referees who officiated soccer matches at the 23rd GUSA games held at the University of Cape Coast, Ghana, on the phenomenon. Also, theoretical concepts were exploited from knowledge-based repositories on home-advantage decisions. Seven experienced referees were selected to supply information through an adapted semi-structured interview protocol. Content analysis procedures identified nine inter-related factors that define three higher-order themes. The factors; experience, opinion and control form a higher-order theme labelled personal factors. Crowd aggression, team reception, play conditions, and player reaction were identified as situational factors, and geographical location and travel conditions represented environmental themes. All the nine factors inter-relate to influence the decision-making efficiency of referees when officiating soccer matches. It was recommended that referees pay particular attention to the home-advantage themes and models expatiated in this study to become aware of varied factors that underlie the award of home-advantage decisions. This will enable referees device appropriate strategies to cope with the factors. Also, the activities of referees should be monitored via the use of electronic monitoring systems such as video technology at all league centres to force referees rescind arbitrary decisions they make on the field of play. This is likely to lead to a reduction in biased officiating.

Authors: INDAH NUR CHOMSY, AGUNG P.W. MARHENDRA, NIA KURNIAWAN, HAMDANI D. PRASETYO

Abstracts: Objective: The purpose of this study was to analyze the allele heterozygosity of five strains of Carp (Cyprinus carpio L.) based on microsatellite DNA markers and determine the relationship between them based on allele heterozygosity using the markers. Methods: The method of this research is DNA isolation according to the TIANGEN kit protocol using muscle tissue samples from five strains of Indonesian local carp strains: Sinyonya, Punten, Majalaya, Koi, and Najawa strains. Amplification was carried out using ten microsatellite primers. The band observed in the qualitative test results on 1% agarose gel was converted into fragment length (bp) based on the 100-3000 bp DNA Ladder. Allele heterozygosity was analyzed using GenAlex 6.503. The fragment length of each locus was tested using variance analysis test. Relationship of the strain was analyzed using POPGENE 1.32 to construct UPGMA dendrograms modified from the NEIGHBOR Procedure of PHYLIP 3.5 and visualized using MEGA7. Results: Allele heterozygosity of the five strains of carp in Indonesia is known to be significant and represent a quite good allele variations. Punten strains are known to have the most polymorphic locus character (90%). The relationships based on the analysis of heterozygosity of microsatellite DNA alleles sh owed that there were two groups of strains separated by significant genetic distances. The first group consisted of three strains namely Koi, Majalaya, and Punten, while the second group consisted of Sinyonya and Najawa strains. Conclusion: The carp strain grouping is influenced by the intensive and long-term local cultivation processes since the first culture in Indonesia untill now.

METACOGNITIVE SELF-REGULATION, PEER LEARNING AND INTERNS’ TEACHING PERFORMANCE IN MATHEMATICS

Authors: JO ANN M. PETANCIO, NOREMAY B. PEREZ, NIGEL GLENN N. JAVIER

Abstracts: This study intended to find out a mathematical model that best describes the relationship a) between teaching performance and metacognitive self-regulation, b) between teaching performance and peer learning, and c) among interns’ mathematics teaching performance, metacognitive self-regulation and peer learning. Primary data from 32 randomly selected student interns were gathered using a 15-item 7-point Likert-type questionnaire adapted from the metacognitive self-regulation and peer learning subscales of the Motivated Strategies for Learning Questionnaire (MSLQ) by Garcia and Pintrich [3] with Cronbach alphas of 0.79 and 0.76, respectively. These data were analyzed using artificial intelligence using a free trial version of a symbolic regression software. Results showed that at varying levels of metacognitive self-regulation or peer learning, teaching performance also varies. But, for maximum teaching performance, a high level of metacognitive self-regulation strategy coupled with a low peer learning skill level is needed. Thus, teaching performance in mathematics is greatly affected by metacognitive self-regulation. The development of metacognitive self-regulation strategies prior to entering the internship phase will definitely help an intern improve his/her teaching performance in math.

SOLAR POWERED CORN THRESHING MACHINE

Authors: GARBIN, RICMART V., CAISIP, ELOISA A., LORZANO, CHRISTIAN JERED R., MOGOL, RICHARD ARIES F., PANOPIO, JENNIFER JOY N.

Abstracts: Maize or corn serves as a basic element of animal feed and raw material for manufacturing of many industrial products. These products include corn starch, maltodextrins, corn oil, corn syrup and products of fermentation and distillation industries. In order to process the corn, the kernel should be separated from the cob. Corn threshing machines are popular in both farms and factories. For the traditional corn threshers, the machine uses diesel or gasoline in order for it to operate, which incurs additional expenses. With this study, a solar powered corn threshing machine will be used to separate the corn kernel from the corncobs. The machine used a 1 Hp motor running at 1740 rpm, powered by a 300 W solar panel with 12 V, 150 AH 12 battery.

IMPROVING BATTERY LIFE OF MOBILE PHONES

Authors: RUSHIT DAVE, EVELYN R SOWELLS BOONE

Abstracts: Over the last two decades, the evolution of mobile technologies has led to an unprecedented adoption of cellphones in mainstream society. Consumers have moved from having the ability to make telephone calls from anywhere at any time using the traditional cellphones to having an all-access pass to cyberspace using today’s smartphones. This portable device has become a reliable support system for the user because of the accessibility and flexibility it offers to maintain the users’ daily routine. Although the functionality of the smartphone is ever increasing, AI has not advanced enough to tailor its functionality and adapt to the user’s unique requirements automatically. In addition, developments in the portable device are dependent upon advances in portable battery technologies which are still lagging. To address this issue, portable electronic system designers have been implementing hardware and software-based power optimization techniques to improve the battery efficiency of smartphones. Authors in this chapter have chosen software optimization techniques to increase battery efficiency because these techniques are more robust. This chapter introduces a novel idea of an automated system for smartphones that prioritize application access based on the owner’s usage patterns and daily routine to conserve battery life. This system will serve two purposes: save battery power and improve the smartphone’s artificial intelligence.

THE REMOVAL OF CU2+ IN INDUSTRIAL WASTEWATER USING THE ACTIVATED CARBON DERIVED FROM MANGO (MANGIFERA INDICA) LEAVES

Authors: REJIE C. MAGNAYE

Abstracts: The study focused on the test for the potentiality of Mango (Mangifera indica) leaves in producing adsorbent for the removal of Copper (Cu+2) in industrial wastewater. The percent removal of copper was analyzed through Atomic Absorption Spectrometry. The surface morphologies of adsorbent derived from mango leaves as well as of commercial activated carbon were determined through X-ray Diffraction Analysis. Experimental and linear and non-linear regression models were used in the determination of the efficacy of activated carbon from Mango leaves for the removal of copper from industrial wastewater. Two-way Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) and Independent t-test were used to test the validity of the hypothesis. The percent yield of mango leaves after activation was found to be 21.54%. It was also found that Mango leaves that had undergone chemical activation have higher metal adsorption compared to ordinary adsorbent. X-ray diffraction analysis revealed the mean particle size and particle size distribution while experimental method was used to obtain the bulk density and total surface area of the adsorbent from Mango leaves. The results of this study indicated that the uptake of copper metal from industrial wastewater was affected by factors such as dosage and contact time. The optimum condition for the reduction of copper metal was found to be at 0.75 grams’ dosage and 60 minutes’ contact time. At optimum condition, the percent removal of copper was 93.33 %. It was found that the effect of time does not depend on what level of dosage is present. Mathematical modelling was used to describe the capability of activated carbon to adsorb copper metal in industrial wastewater. Using Design of Experiment (DOE) software, the equation generated was Y= 0.1057 – 3.8295E-3*A + 2.5510E-5*B where Y was the percentage copper removal (%), A and B were actual variables for dosage and contact time, respectively. Based from the experimental and mathematical analysis, it had been shown that Mango leaves have potential in removing copper metal from industrial wastewater.

Authors: DR. THEREZIA O. CONTI, TRISHIA JEAN N. BAGSIT, RAVEN TRISTAN D. CLAVERIA, JHOANNA PAULINE ESCALONA, ROSEMARIE B. RAMOS

Abstracts: This study aimed to determine the indications that signify internet dependency among the senior high school students (SHS) in Batangas State University. This study determined the impact of internet dependency in relation to the cognitive, behavioral, and affective state of the students. The descriptive type of research was used in the study to gather pertinent data and information regarding the impact of internet dependency among SHS students. One hundred ninety six (196) students in SY 2017-2018 were used as the subjects of the study. There is a significant relationship between the profile of the respondents in terms of sex, number of hours in using Internet in a day, and frequency of Internet usage in a week and indications that determine internet dependency, while there is none with age. On the other hand, there is a significant relationship between indications that determine internet dependency and its impact. Male students are more likely to use Internet than female students. Majority of the students use internet greater than six hours a day and 7 times in a week. It can be attributed that the senior high school students frequently displayed indications of Internet dependency. In terms of cognitive aspect, majority of the respondents agreed that internet dependency led to having a short attention span, attitude problems (short-temperance, irritability, etc.), changeable perception, poor decision making, and uncertainness or being unsure to oneself. Based on behavioral aspect, majority of them agreed that internet dependency has an impact in behavior when it comes to having time mismanagement, unproductivity, loss of focus, and neglect of responsibilities. In terms of affective aspect, majority of the student-respondents concurred that internet dependency can bring lack of desire to other things, anxiety or depression, and isolation. A detailed plan of action was proposed to give students a constant reminder on how to use the Internet properly.

CHARACTERIZING THE DIFFICULTY IN FRACTION OPERATION

Authors: RAY FERDINAND M. GAGANI, FELIX M. DIANO JR

Abstracts: Learning fractions are one of the mathematics fundamentals that students must possess; however, many students impartially understand in applying its procedural mechanism and the essential concepts needed to implement it in making sense to quantifiable ideas entirely. This descriptive study is a blend of exploratory and comparative procedures that investigated the forty-seven 8th-grade public night high school students’ possible difficulty levels in operating fractions as the function of their procedural and conceptual understanding applied to addition, multiplication and division. Students’ scores are subjected to hierarchical cluster analysis and revealed three (1,2,3) clustering. Performance indexes on procedural expertise and conceptual facility generated the three thinking levels (0, 1, and 2) of hypothesized difficulties. The procedural and conceptual indexes levels impacted the performances in each cluster; the higher the indexes are, the higher the performances. The procedural and conceptual thinking levels were further hypothesized to have other levels of difficulty that characterizes misconception.

LEVEL OF INTERNATIONALIZATION OF STATE UNIVERSITIES AND COLLEGES (SUCS) IN CALABARZON, PHILIPPINES

Authors: ANNA MARIA VASQUEZ-RIVERA

Abstracts: This study aimed to determine the level of internationalization initiatives of State Universities and Colleges (SUCs) in CALABARZON. It involved administrative officials and heads of support units from four SUCs and those from University of the Philippines Los Baños (UPLB) whose assessments were used as benchmark on the SUCs’ level of internationalization. The descriptive research was used using research triangulation. Key instrument to gather data was the validated instrument of Balagtas and Associates which provided the rubrics on determining internationalization. Statistical tool used was weighted mean.The SUCs were internationalized to a very great extent as to indicator of curriculum and instruction and internationalized to a great extent on facilities and support system and on diversity income generation. Assessments on indicators on research collaboration, academic standards and quality, mobility and exchanges for students and faculty, international student recruitment, cooperation and development assistance manifested internationalization initiatives were low. Comparative assessments on UPLB’s internationalization revealed that SUCs were way below to capture the wide accomplishments of UPLB , inferring much remains to be done by the SUCs in internationalization. Generally, it could be said that internationalization of SUCs was still on the internal system of developing competitiveness in their mandates, quality standards, and facilities and may take more time, commitment and will to realize successful implementation.

DESIGN OF ARCHITECTURE ENTERPRISE MODEL INFORMATION SYSTEM ACADEMIC AND STUDENT ADMINISTRATION BUREAU USING TOGAF ADM

Authors: ARIFIN, IQBAL

Abstracts: Information systems and technology have become very important components for the success of businesses and organizations (Setiawan, 2018). Information systems can help all types of businesses to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of business processes. These factors cause many organizations to implement information systems by only paying attention to momentary needs. So that the copy information overlaps and the system platform is different from one another, which is not in accordance with the mission and purpose of the application of information systems. One of the main causes of these different platforms is due to lack of planning and without thinking about the main key in the process of developing information system [1]. In this study a case study of the design of an enterprise architecture model of the information system of the academic and student administration bureau (BAAK) was designed by applying the TOGAF ADM method. Stages - The stages of the Togaf ADM methodology are translated into enterprise architecture modeling namely architecture vision, business architecture, information system architecture and information technology. This research is limited to the main business processes based on mapping using the value chain and only reaches the Opportunities and Solution phase in TOGAF ADM with a sample of research at a private university in DKI Jakarta. The purpose of this research is to overcome the problem in the old system where some of the processing is found to be still managed manually. This research produces a blueprint of information system architecture in the form of application candidates for each sub-organization that is arranged based on the priority level of needs so that the implementation process is in accordance with the desired and does not interfere with the performance of the information system both running and being built. This research also serves as a reference for the foundation of the development of the SI architecture in the management of universities to be able to improve services. In this study, there can be seen a gap in business processes where in running a business at BAAK UNU has not used IT as its main requirement and also processing academic operational data still using standard applications such as Microsoft Office.

THE PREDICTIVE ABILITY OF PERFORMANCE VARIABLES IN DIFFERENTIAL CALCULUS GRADE

Authors: DR. ROCELYN B. CADACIO

Abstracts: Estimation of grade of a student in Differential Calculus in relation to a number of performance variables were conceptualized to be meaningful such as pre-admission performance variables, admission performance variables and final grade of students in five pre- Calculus subjects. Regression was used both single variable and multiple regression analyses in determining how well performance in Differential Calculus can be predicted on some identified performance variables such as fourth year high school mathematics average grade, National Career Assessment Examination (NCAE) percentile score, college entrance test on mathematical ability, English Proficiency Test (EPT) result, and average grade in five pre- Calculus subjects. A student having an average grade of 86 on his fourth year mathematics could be predicted to have a grade of 2.95 in Differential Calculus, using the regression equation Y = -0.133X1 + 14.386. On the same manner, having completed his freshman mathematics, an average of 2.25 on Trigonometry, Solid Mensuration, and Analytic Geometry subjects, a student could be predicted to have a grade of 2.79 in Differential Calculus using the regression equation Y =1.652X6 – 0.924. For testing the significance of regression, the analysis of variance (ANOVA) was computed. The coefficient of determination (r2), the value of which tells the amount of variation observable in Differential Calculus grades due to the prediction variables was also determined. For instance, the r^2 value of 0.59 tells that 59 percent or more than half of the total variance in Differential Calculus grade is due to the result of the English Proficiency Test (EPT). For in-depth treatment of data, a multiple regression analysis was utilized which considered two sets of measurements chosen as independent variables namely: the combination designated as CFNCE , being the first set of four prediction variables; and the combination designated as CCATSA, the second set of two prediction variables. The regression equation for predicting the Differential Calculus grades from the combination of the four predictors was found to be Ŷ = 0.018796358X1 + 0.01037379X2 - 0.023285098X3 - 0.151700424X4 + 13.59815283. Similarly, the regression equation for predicting the Differential Calculus grades based on the combination of two averages of freshman mathematics subjects registered to be Ŷ = 0.503049757X5 1.246562917X6 - 1.126864664.

Abstracts: Background: Injection drug use (IDU) is a vector for HIV on all continents, most notably in Asia, Eastern Europe and more recently, the Middle East and North Africa. However, little intervention has been carried out to reduce HIV risk among injection drug users. This study was an intervention study conducted among injection drug users in Nigeria to reduce their risk to HIV/ AIDS by providing access to HIV counselling, testing and its treatment. Methods: This project was an intervention effort focused on delivering evidence-based HIV prevention activities among injection drug users in the six-geopolitical zones in Nigeria. The estimated target population for the study was 5,406 injection drug users and this project used the Minimum Prevention Package Intervention (MPPI). Peer educators were selected and trained among the injection drug users to reach out to their peers using cohort sessions. Data were documented using various monitoring and evaluation tools, entered on the District Health Information Software version 2 and analysed using Microsoft Excel. Results: A total of 494 community dialogues were held with 2,265 influencers participating in the process. In addition, 246 injecting drug users were referred, while 260 persons benefitted from the income generating activities aimed at capacity building for injecting drug users. A total of 10897 injection drug users were counselled, tested and received results, with 662 persons referred. Most, 46.08% were receiving STI services and 28.3% were going for STI follow-up visit. Although 193227 condoms were distributed, these numbers was below the number of condoms required during the intervention. Conclusion: This intervention was a success. However, more needs to be done with regards to condom distribution and supply among injection drug users since there is a crucial role for injection drug users to play in the plot of reducing the prevalence of HIV in Nigeria.

Abstracts: In any luminescence measurement and to regenerate the luminescence signal, resetting of the signal is needed. This can be achieved by either natural or laboratory bleaching. In this paper the resetting behavior of the Infrared-Radiofluoroscence (IR-RF) signal has been investigated using six wavelengths LED-based solar simulator. For the IR-RF signal to complete reset in nature and not to be “over-bleached” in the laboratory, the intensities of the available LEDs on Lexsyg reader were adjusted to deliver low power signal to simulate the natural sunlight. It was found that signal could be reset using low power at least 6 h of bleaching, which was necessary to confirm the resetting of signal under power equivalent of almost 57 mW/cm2. In addition, bleaching time was reduced in order to get the highest attainable power of about 246 mW/cm2, which was capable of bleaching signal in 1 h. This finding is of great importance to apply IR-RF technique in sediments dating. It confirms that bleaching by low power is possible and machine time can be reduced by increasing power but still matching with natural sun.

AWARENESS AND ATTITUDE ON PREVENTION OF CORONARY HEART DISEASE AMONG MIDDLE AGED WOMEN OF AN URBAN COMMUNITY IN KATHMANDU

Authors: NANU SHRESTHA, LALITA RAI, BHUWAN K. DANGOL, TANUJA K. CHAUDHARY

Abstracts: Coronary heart disease (CHD) is the number one killer disease of women worldwide. A descriptive study was done to find out awareness and attitude of middle aged women on prevention of CHD. A total of 106 respondents were selected through non- probability purposive sampling technique. Semi-structured interview schedule was used to find out awareness and 3 point Likert scale was used to assess attitude of women. All collected data were analyzed and interpreted by using descriptive and inferential statistical method. Chi-square test was used to find out the association between awareness and selected variables. The age of the respondents varied from 40 to 60 years with mean age 49.3years. Findings of the study depicted that 42% of women had adequate awareness on prevention of CHD. Majority of the women (94.3 %) had heard about CHD, but only 19% of them were aware about the correct meaning. Seventy six percent of women were aware about stress being a risk factor while only 17% were aware about diabetes. Similarly, only 21% of women were aware about increased risk of CHD after menopause. Eighty percent of women were aware that CHD is a preventable disease. Majority (88.8 %) were aware about diet control as a preventive measures followed by avoiding stress (77.5 %). Likewise, 76% of women possessed positive attitude towards CHD prevention. Awareness level was significantly associated with education status and positive family history of CHD.In conclusion, more than half of women had inadequate awareness on prevention of CHD. Despite inadequate awareness, majority of them had positive attitude towards prevention. So, health education programs could be beneficial on prevention of morbidity and mortality related to CHD among women by improving awareness and further promoting positive attitude towards prevention.

DEMOGRAPHIC AND SOCIO-ECONOMIC DETERMINANTS OF HOUSEHOLD FOOD SECURITY IN TANZANIA

Authors: MOHAMED KHALFANI MWANGA

Abstracts: The study examines demographic and socioeconomic determinants of household food security in Tanzania. A probit regression was employed on National panel survey data of 2014/2015 surveyed by the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) of Tanzania. The analysis evaluated the food security status of the households based on the Food Consumption Score (FCS). The study revealed that about 92.6% of the household were food secured and 7.4% of the household were food insecure. Probit regression analysis results show that household size, area of residence, household head marital status and non-agriculture income were found to be statistically significant. Based on the findings, it is concluded that demographic determinant of household food security in Tanzania is household head marital status while socio-economic determinants of household food security are household size, area of residence and non-agriculture income. Therefore, the findings from the study recommend that the government and policymakers should support household particularly in rural areas in other income generating activities in addition to agriculture so as to increase their purchasing power for higher food security.
