EVALUATION OF RECOMBINANT INBRED LINES DERIVED FROM BULK POPULATION METHOD OF SELECTION IN RICE ( ORYZA SATIVA L.)

Authors: MYINT AYE, MAY ZIN WIN, TIN NWE WIN, NYO MAR HTWE, NANG HSENG HOM

Abstracts: Current climate shocks in Myanmar reduce the rice productivity and production stability that already have high levels of food insecurity. To attend local self-sufficiency, plant breeders have to develop high yielding cultivars with desirable agronomic traits. In order to evaluate genetic variability of recombinant inbred lines based on agro-morphological traits and also determine the correlation between these traits, 49 F7 recombinant inbred lines (RILs), their parents and a check variety were grown in the research field of Yezin Agricultural University during January to May, 2016. A field experiment was conducted using Randomized Complete Block design with three replications. All tested genotypes showed wide range of variability for population uniformity, flag leaf altitude and leaf pubescence. YAU 1215-B-B-B-138-3, YAU 1215-B-B-B-123-3 and YAU 1215-B-B-B-91-3 were identified as the early maturity promising lines. The best yields were shown in YAU 1214-B-B-B-51-2 and YAU 1215-B-B-B-156-1. Phenotypic coefficients of variance were higher than genotypic coefficients of variance in all the characters. Progeny selection will be effective to improve plant height, total grains plant-1, no. of filled grains panicle-1 and 1000 seed weight indicating high heritability and high genetic advance. In rice seed production, panicle length, number of total grains panicle-1 and number of filled grains panicle-1 were found to be the main yield contributing traits. In cluster analysis, 2 RILs in cluster VI had medium number of panicle plant-1, longest panicle length, largest number of total grains plant-1, medium 1000 seed weight and highest seed yield were identified as highly valuable sources to be incorporated in rice breeding programs.

CONSTRUCTION OF INCOMPLETE COUNTERBALANCING FOR IMMEDIATE SEQUENTIAL EFFECTS CROSSOVER DESIGN

Authors: ADEBARA LANRE, FAYOSE TAIWO STEPHEN, AJAYI BAMIDELE

Abstracts: Crossover designs are useful in many areas such as pharmaceutical industry, clinical trial, educational experiment and so on. Different construction methods for crossover design have been developed so far. In this paper, our purpose is to construct incomplete counterbalancing for immediate sequential effects where all treatments do not occur within the same subject or the same period. Here we constructed incomplete sequentially counter balanced crossover design by removing the last period and the last subject for column and row method approach respectively. The result shows that all treatments do not occur within the same subject and each treatment is precede by each other treatment once and unequal number of times for even number and odd number respectively for column method approach, also all treatments do not occur within the same period and each treatment is precede by each other treatment twice and unequal number of times for even number and odd number respectively for row method approach. It is not uniform design for not all the treatments appear in each subject and each period for column and row method respectively.

Authors: MELGISAPUTRA DWI NANDA

Abstracts: In order to promote the product to be widely known by the consumers and improve the sales; promotion activity is conducted. At present, the product promotion through social media is considered as the most effective effort where the social media of Instagram has established itself as one of the social media with active users that reached 700 million users in which its 45 million of active users located in Indonesia and become the biggest users in Southeast Asia. By referring towards this opportunity, the buzzers accounts are emerging which provide the product promotion service with varied prices. Buzzer is the users/accounts that utilize their personal Instagram account to distribute the information widely in various sectors and actively conduct a promotion or advertising activities of a product or a service of a company and particular business actor. However, the business actors or companies have not yet conduct optimal selection of buzzer accounts for their media promotion in which the budget spent is not in accordance with the impact resulted from the promotional activity conducted by those accounts. In order to overcome that issue, the analysis towards the selection/determination of buzzer accounts that will be selected to conduct promotion activity is required. Through the analysis implemented by using Simple Additive Weighting (SAW) method towards the account’s activeness, post reach, the number of likes, the comments and prices offered in every promotion post of buzzer accounts; the research will generate an appropriate decision in selecting the buzzer accounts that could maximize every promotional activity.

Authors: BOUAOUD SOUAD; BOUHARATI KHAOULA; REZIG M.FAOUZI, BOUHARATI SADDEK, HAMDI-CHERIF MOKHTAR.

Abstracts: Domestic accidents are accidents that take place in the house or in the neighborhood. These accidents are considered a public health problem around the world. The aim to this study is to characterize these accidents in Setif region in Algeria. Setif is an urban environment. We considered some factors as epidemiological factors. The study involved 296984 cases according to their ages and gender over a seven-year period (2009 -2016) and the type of accidents that occurred. This survey is based on a pre-established questionnaire. As the phenomenon is considered a social phenomenon, where several factors may be the cause, an intelligent analysis is applied to process these data. The consequences of these accidents can lead to disability and reverberate throughout society. The analysis used makes it possible to take into account the uncertainties and inaccuracies related to the very nature of the risk factors of domestic accidents. It shows that the analysis of the causes of domestic accidents makes it possible to plan means for prevention. General practitioners and all health care staffs have primary responsibility. The results obtained are in agreement with the studies carried out in this field. The proposed analysis tool can help public health authorities to prevent risk factors for this type of accident

PRINT MEDIA AND THE CHALLENGES OF SOCIAL MEDIA

Authors: UDENZE, SILAS

Abstracts: This paper examines the print media and the challenges posed by the social media. It is no doubt that the social media has altered the news gathering and processing paradigm but the print medium remain relevant in news dissemination. The study is anchored on technology determinism theory by Marshall McLuhan. The theory states that media technologies shape how we as individuals in a society think, feel act and how a society operates as we move from one technology age to another. In another way, McLuhan predicted that we would be in the midst of a revolution, and that the world will never be the same due to the advance in technology. Scholarly journals and conference papers formed the sources for secondary data for this study. Findings from the study reveal that the new media have caused the print media, particularly the newspaper a huge lost in revenue and advertisement. The study also discovered that the social media have altered the traditional gatekeeping theory of the print media; hence it is common to find all sort of information on social media platforms. The study also reveals that media technology has aided the media audience to become more sophisticated thereby being able to manipulate the new media in effect creating audiences that have contributed in reshaping the information gathering and dissemination process on the social media. Furthermore, the paper succinctly reveals an emerging paradigm in media convergence; it discovered that the new media converge on the traditional media. As a result, the new media also need the traditional media to survive. The implication of this study is therefore, with the continuous development in technology it becomes safe to argue that no mass medium will totally triumph over the other.

PREPARATION OF ZEOLITE MEMBRANE AND MODELING DEHYDRATION OF ORGANIC COMPOUNDS ON THE PILOT-SCALE WITH THE HELP OF ARTIFICIAL NEURAL NETWORK

Authors: MANSOOR KAZEMIMOGHADAM

Abstracts: Nano pore NaA zeolite membranes composed of a continuous intergrowth of NaA zeolite crystals had been synthesized hydrothermally on the surface of a porous tubular support (14 mm outer diameter, 25 cm length). Morphology of the supports subjected to crystallization was characterized by Scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Separation performance of NaA zeolite membranes was studied for water-Ethanol mixtures using pervaporation (PV) in cross flow method. The membranes showed good selectivity towards water in the water- Ethanol mixtures. Water permeates faster because of its preferential adsorption into the nano-pores of the hydrophilic zeolite membrane. The membrane exhibits a hydrophilic behavior, with a high selectivity towards water and a good flux. Thus, the pilot- scale PV plant which produces 5 l/h of solvent (EtOH) at less than 0.2 wt.% of water from 90 wt.% solvent at 75°C has been put into pilot operation. The present study considered the amount of water-alcohol separation within the process of pervaporation with the help of Artificial Neural Network modeling.

PREVALENCE OF NEMATODE (CONTRACAECUM) AND CESTODE (LIGULA INTESTINALIS) PARASITES INFECTION IN TWO FISH SPECIES AT LAKE TANA

Authors: NECHO AGEZE, AWAKE MENZIR

Abstracts: A cross sectional study was conducted from November, 2011-April, 2012 in two species of fish from Southern Gulf of Lake Tana to determine the prevalence of Contracaecum and Ligula intestinalis parasite infecting fish. A total of 400 fish comprising of 200 (49.5%) Tilapia nilotica (Oreochromis niloticus) were caught by gill nets of variable size and 200 (22.5%) small barbus were caught by the help of scup net. Of all fish examined, 161 (40.25%) were found to harbor Contracecum helminth parasite on both fish species. A significantly higher infection was found in Tilapia nilotica fish species (p<0.05). There was no significance variation (p>0.05) revealed in the occurrence infections between different size categories in both fish species but there was a tendency of increasing infection with body length in large Tilapia nilotica. The study demonstrated that Contracecum from pericardial cavity was the most prevalent nematode with prevalence of (49.5%) and (31%) in Tilapia nilotica and small barbus respectively. Ligula intestinalis was detected only in small barbus fish species and the prevalence is 22.5%. 8 (4.97%) small barbus fish were found to harbor both Ligula intestinalis and Contracaecum helminthes parasite. Even though no statistical significance difference were observed between the two sex groups in each fish species, 64 (39.75%) males and 89(55.28%) female were infected by Contracecum parasites. From results of the study it was concluded that the parasite was found either free and /or encysted in the pericardial cavity. On average of 4 larvae of Contracecum and a maximum of 3 worms of Ligula intestinalis per fish were collected. The observed infection rates are predominantly related on the distribution of piscivorours birds which are more abundant in area where there are high fishing activities and increase number of discarded filleted wastes.

TEACHER’S CAREER PERFORMANCE IN SECONDARY EDUCATION; CASE STUDY OF TEACHER'S PSYCHOLOGY, ETHICS, MORAL AND VALUES IN DODOMA (M), TANZANIA.

Authors: ARNOLD K FULMENT, BAJARANG B SRIVASTAVA, REVELIAN R TIBYEHABWA

Abstracts: Every University in Tanzania has its own teachers ' training program curriculum, and the way teachers are educated to meet challenges but still upholding the teaching professional is also questionable. The present study assesses teachers‘moral, value, ethics, psychology and working morale in secondary education. The study involved structured questionnaire interview, focus group discussion and key informants study design. The study found that student behavior is influenced by both teacher's behavior and student's characteristic, teacher's moral, ethics, values and psychology is influenced by teacher's foundation from the training programs where as working morale is much affected with school climate and prevailing relationship between employers and employees. Problems of teachers ' salaries, job promotion, unsatisfactory teaching environment and lack of teachers' in-service training programs affect teacher's performance. The study further found that; teacher's organization and preparedness for class sessions, commitment to employer's goals, teacher-students counseling service or activities as well as teacher and student interactions depend on type of school ownership (government or private school). The study contributes significantly to the understanding of the contemporary state of teaching career and teachers' performance and challenges in secondary education in Tanzania.

Abstracts: Background: Cameroon is one of the countries with highest burden diabetes in Africa; the adequate respond of health personnel to this burden depend on their knowledge in preventing and managing diabetic patients. Objective: To assess the knowledge of health personnel on the management of diabetes mellitus in the West Region of Cameroon Study design: It was a cross sectional descriptive study conducted in the West Region of Cameroon from May to July 2016. The Knowledge of consulting health personnel, selected using a multi-stage random sampling, was assessed on diabetes prevention and management using a structured pre-tested questionnaire administered face-to-face. We estimated proportions of health personnel who master the diagnosis of diabetes mellitus, complications, risk factors, management and prevention with 95% CI. Results: Out of 193 health personnel included, 92.8% (CI 88.16-96.0), 119(61.7%), 66.8% (CI 54.4-68.6), and 57.5% (CI 50.2-64.6) of health personnel respectively knew that Polyuria, weights loss, polydypsia and polyphagia were primary signs and symptoms of diabetes. 72.5% (CI 65.7-78.7), 61.1% (CI 53.9-68.1) and 11.9% (7.7-17.3) personnel respectively knew that visual trouble, renal disorder and paralysis respectively were complications of diabetes mellitus. 51.8% (CI 44.5-59.1) of health personnel knew that eye should be frequently examined when exposing to diabetes. 74.6% (CI 67.9-80.6), 67.9% (CI 60.8-74.4) and 62.2% (CI 54.9-69.0) of health personnel knew that they need to advise patients on the importance of physical education, food hygiene and the mastery of primary signs and symptoms of diabetes. 68.9% (CI 61.9-75.4) of health personnel could diagnose diabetes using Fasting plasma glycemic test. Conclusion: The overall knowledge of health personnel regarding diabetes management is average; however, there are deficits in certain aspects of diabetes management. As such, there is an urgent need to improve and enhance the capability of health personnel to deliver adequate healthcare delivery services to diabetic patients through a more educational initiative like workshops, regular training. More so, new training methods should be developed and implement to appropriate health personnel.
