EFFECT OF RADIAL AND AXIAL CLEARANCE ON THE PERFORMANCE OF A SPECIALLY DESIGNED SAVONIUS VERTICAL AXIS WIND TURBINE

Authors: EL-SAMANOUDY, M. A. , GHORAB A. A. E., IBRAHIM. W. FAWY

Abstracts: Savonius Wind Turbine (SWT) has a simple construction and can produce electricity in any wind direction. Although Savonius wind rotor has many advantages, but it has a low power coefficient when compared with other horizontal and vertical axis wind rotors. In this paper; an experimental study is carried out to investigate the effect of geometrical parameters (radial and axial clearances) on the performance of SWT in terms of torque coefficient and power coefficient. For this reason, analysis is carried out to optimize and improve the operation of such turbines. Two buckets' Savonius rotor model was selected, designed and manufactured with a diameter of 80 cm and height of 80 cm; without having a shaft between the end plates. The designed model was fabricated and tested in a low speed wind tunnel under an open type test section.The results of the present study shows that, a maximum power coefficient (Cp) of 0.076 was obtained at a clearance (ea) = 0.14d in axial direction. The specially designed Savonius wind turbine with clearance (er) = 0.09d and (er) =0.115d in radial axis are having the highest coefficient of torque than the one in the conventional Savonius rotor.

Authors: HAYFORD B.M.L, ABU,O.P, WORLU H

Abstracts: The study examined the Sedentary Hours at Work and Challenges among Civil Servants at the Rivers State secretariat complex, Port Harcourt, Rivers State Nigeria. It used the Cross sectional survey design. The study was delimited to the thirty ministries at the Rivers state secretariat complex. A multi-stage sampling technique was used to carry out the study. A cluster sampling techniques was used to select two ministries from each of the five blocks of A B C, podium block and point block. The respondents were stratified into male and female staff, junior and senior staff. A list of respondents was taken to exclude visitors. A 64-item structured questionnaire was distributed proportionately to the ministries, while oral interview and focus group discussion were conducted with ten respondents each who responded positively to five out of the thirteen health challenges under study. The ecological model of health behavior was used to explain the study. The Result showed that workers sit for 3-7 hours each working day without getting up. Number of hours at work was significantly related to the health challenges. Stress was the commonest health challenge followed by eye problem, musculo-skeletal discomfort, but oral interview result showed musculo-skeletal discomfort as the commonest. Other health challenges were present with lesser percentages. There was no significant association between gender and health challenges except for diabetes which was common with men. The number of hours at work was associated with organizational culture, work load and increasing reliance on technology. It was concluded that workers should use the stair case more than the elevators when climbing up.

Abstracts: The business phenomenon of e-commerce leads to many opportunities and interest for manufacturing industries considering its potential to increase profits. In today's increased market competition, companies are required to have the capabilities to manage innovation as a management technique and strategy. Management innovation is a concept embracing planning, organizing, leading and controlling of endogenous capabilities within companies and translating them into competitive advantages and proceeds. In this sense, this study covered the characteristics of corporate e-commerce of manufacturing industries; assessments of managers, ICT employees, and customers/clients for management, technology infrastructures, and marketing; significant differences of corporate e-commerce practices as it relates to the characteristics of manufacturing industries; and identified problems encountered. From the analysis, the researcher proposed an input to management innovation. The descriptive method of research is used in the study and the survey questionnaire as the main data gathering instrument. The study revealed that multi-national manufacturing industries which utilized corporate e-commerce were electronics, computer, food, and metal-working and fabrication industries, and automotive businesses. The respondents agreed that practices of corporate e-commerce were much observed but there are significant differences in the assessments of the three groups of respondents. Corporate e-commerce practices relate significantly to the form of business, length of existence and business capital. The respondents also experienced less serious problems in corporate e-commerce. The proposed input to management innovation designed to broaden the applications of corporate e-commerce has business dimension, linkages, and public and service domain with electronic-culture as the primary strategy that binds the components.

INTEGRATION OF CONTRACT FOR DIFFERENCE IN THE MINIMIZATION OF ENERGY COST OF A DISTRIBUTION UTILITY

Authors: DINDO T. ANI

Abstracts: High cost of electricity makes it important for the distribution utilities (DUs) to allocate their energy requirements in the least cost manner. In the current Philippine set-up, energy requirements of DUs are allocated in spot market and bilateral contract. Given the volatility of the WESM (Wholesale Electricity Spot Market) prices and that the bilateral contract price may be either higher or lower than the WESM price; the contract for difference (CFD) provides an alternative for the bilateral contract. This study developed a methodology for scheduling the economic purchase of energy that yield to lower purchase cost of DU. The methodology includes forecasting the nodal load and spot market price, and energy allocation optimization. Results showed that the optimization engine was able to generate an optimal set of energy allocations and that the integration of CFD yield to a reduction of purchase cost of DU which in turn reduced the cost of electricity for consumers.

Authors: ROMANOFF M. RAKI-IN, RN, MAN

Abstracts: The study aimed to find out the effect of providing preoperative education on the prevention of complications after the surgery in clients undergoing caesarean surgery at Gregorio T. Lluch Memorial Hospital (GTLMH), Iligan City. Thirty (30) sample clients were randomly picked and equally divided into two groups. Fifteen (15) clients for the experimental group and fifteen (15) clients for the control group. This research used a combination of experimental design and descriptive correlation design to know the effect of structured preoperative education on the complications postoperatively. Specifically, the experimental design involved in giving the structured preoperative education to patients having elective caesarean section to investigate the effect of preoperative education on the postoperative outcomes of the control and experimental groups. Results showed that there is no significant relationship between personal data of the clients and postoperative outcomes. However, both groups (experimental and control) shows significant relationship in postoperative outcomes. For experimental group (with preoperative teachings) shows almost no postoperative problems arose as compared to control group in the context of problems in respiratory, deep vein thrombosis, and wound dehiscence. Elective caesarean sections for pregnant women need preoperative health teachings as way in preparation for the surgical intervention to decrease possible postoperative outcome problems. The researcher aimed to evaluate the effects of preoperative teachings in the prevention of postoperative outcome problems to patients undergoing caesarean section in Gregorio T. Lluch Memorial Hospital (GTLMH) in Iligan City. This study can be used as a lead and guide the students’ clinical experience in the operating room and recognized the importance of including preoperative health teachings to their nursing care plans on patients having surgical interventions. This study could also be suggested to the hospital to strictly observe implementation of preoperative health teachings to their clients’ scheduled for surgery.

PETROGRAPHIC AND STRUCTURAL CHARACTERS OF THE BASEMENT UNITS IN KURA AREA, NORTHEASTERN NIGERIA.

Authors: OSHILIKE, I.B., HARUNA, A.I., ONUORAH, T.J.

Abstracts: Field mapping, structural studies and petrography of the basement complex around Kura area in Bauchi State exposes variations in rock types and structural features. Deformation and migmatization of the rocks, produced orientations in different directions, with abundance of geologic structures such as foliation, ptygmatic folds, veins, fractures and dykes. Most of these structures found on the rocks tend to trend towards the NE – SW and E-W directions, these trends are consistent with the general trends of Pan-African structures and of schist belt respectively. This study provides some dynamic information on the rocks exposed around the area and reveals the various rock types and their geological characteristics: field relation, macroscopic and microscopic features as well as structural elements. The main aim of this work is to study the geologic conditions of the study area in order to infer the level of deformation on the rocks with the intent of recognizing and further suggesting the variations in paleo-environmental regimes of pressure, temperature, and fluid activity. Results from the field shows that the area consists of migmatites, granitic gneisses and biotite hornblende granites which all show a variety of colors, textures and mineralogy. The displacement of distinctive mineralogy, textures, optical and structural characteristics led to the nomenclature of the rocks. Exposure of rocks in the area were mostly high and medium level outcrops with elevations ranging from 574m to 597m. Petrography reveals pelitic mineral assemblages suggesting high grade metamorphism. Characteristic structures such as gneissosity, and typical metamorphic textures such as granoblastic textures are present in the migmatites and granitic–gneisses respectively, while granitic textures characterize the granites.

THE ACHIEVEMENT OF BLIND RECRUITMENT IN SRI LANKAN CONTEXT

Authors: S. SHANMUGATHASAN, RAMAKRISHNAN VIVEK

Abstracts: The report talks about the achievement of Blind recruitment in Sri Lankan context. Blind recruitment is the way toward expelling any recognizable proof subtleties from the hopefuls' resumes and applications. It causes organizations and the recruitment group assess individuals on their abilities and experience rather than elements that can prompt one-sided choices. A basic method to make a blind recruitment practice is to dole out a colleague who isn't associated with recruitment to each competitor's data. Make a format that enables them to connect every individual's work understanding, aptitudes, degree and other appropriate data organizations characterized in the competitor profile. Organizations can assess the contender for those when it comes time to talk with them. It includes expelling the hopeful's name and other distinguishing factors –, for example, age, address or area, long stretches of involvement, and school or college names – from their application. The thought is that evacuating such data makes it simpler for recruitment directors, recruiters and HR experts to settle on target choices about a hopeful's abilities, experience and appropriateness for a job, and to decrease the danger of predisposition (regardless of whether cognizant or oblivious) influencing the basic leadership process.

Authors: DR. JEFFREY P. MARANAN, DR. SHIRLEY E. MARANAN, JEROME Z. MACALINDONG, JOHN CARLO M. PAYAS, IVANNA SHANE B. FURTO

Abstracts: Security of one’s property has long been a concern of people throughout the world. Beyond hiding the objects or constantly guarding them, the most frequently used option is to secure them with a device. Today, there are circumstances where security and safety has been tested whether at home, in the office, or any public or private places. Reports showed that motorcycle stealing was rampant and the number of motorcycle accidents in the Philippines were high as they expose the driver and passenger/s to twice as much risk than in four-wheel vehicles. Although there have been laws implemented on motorcycles, accidents have been declared as one of the leading causes of death in the Philippines. These scenarios prompted the researchers to develop a device which will secure human lives and property using Arduino technology in a motorcycle anti-theft and safety device.

PORTABLE POWER GENERATING FLOOR BOARDS

Authors: BALANSAY, MARIA LOURDES V., BANAAG,MARK KEVIN, ILAGAN, ANJHO ANTONIO B., MAPUTI, MARIEL M.

Abstracts: The project will harvest energy by transforming mechanical energy to electrical energy with the mechanical energy coming from the footstep of people walking on it. When piezoelectric material was placed under mechanical stress, a shifting of the positive and negative charge centers in the material takes place, which then results in an external electrical field. The alternating current produced was then rectified using a full wave bridge rectifier which was then stored in a battery. The primary characteristic of the prototype was that it is portable with dimensions of 60 cm by 80 cm. This project could be an emergency power supply in times of power outage and good for the environment because it uses renewable power source.

DEVELOPMENT AND INSTALLATION OF A SOLAR-POWERED PEANUT GRINDING MACHINE

Authors: ENGR. ROSALYNN C. HERNANDEZ, BRIONES, JUDY ANN M., GENEROSO, JESSICA D., TUMBAGA, MARY JOY L.

Abstracts: Peanuts were one of the various crops that have been present in the country since Spanish colonial era. Popular confections made from peanuts include salted peanuts, peanut brittle and peanut butter (sandwiches, peanut candy bars and peanut butter cookies).The universally known peanut butter was invented in 1890. However, its production was a demanding and a physically challenging process. To cope up with the demand, the solution is through the use of a peanut grinding machine which significantly simplifies processing of nuts into paste. This is a machine used in the disintegration of solid particles or droplet size of a liquid present in suspension or emulsion. The project entitled, Development and Installation of Solar-Powered Peanut Grinding Machine aims to replace the conventional peanut grinding machine method because it consumes lot of time of making peanut butter. The machine has a maximum capacity of 5kg. Since peanuts have moisture content, the design of the prototype included burr grinder which produce fine ground peanuts. The machine was also made from stainless steel to keep the ground peanuts from possible contamination. To ensure the grinding process, the machine has a rotating mechanism which was driven by an AC induction motor at a speed of 1720rpm. The project used two solar panels of approximately 275 watts each for the continuity of supply, increase of production, less production cost, and reduced air pollutants emission. For the continuity of supply, increase of production, and less production cost, the machine was solar-powered.

CHARACTERISTICS OF CRITICAL THINKING OF SMP STUDENTS IN IPS LESSONS BASED ON LOCAL INTEREST THROUGH ADVANCE ORGANIZER

Authors: SUDARMIANI, SRI JUTMINI, BAEDHOWI, GUNARHADI

Abstracts: Critical thinking is the ability to evaluate a statement and identify a reason, for example, the evidence underlying the evaluation. In Social Sciences subjects critical thinking skills are essential. Then an integrated learning model is needed that allows students both individually and actively seek, explore, and discover concepts and principles holistically and authentically. One learning model that is expected to improve critical thinking skills is the Advance Organizer learning model. The primary idea of advancing organizer is that it is known to be known. This type of research is research and development (RnD) from Borg and Gall. The data obtained in this research and development are of two kinds, namely primary data and secondary data. Primary data in the form of information from informants, suggestions/comments from expert teams on the draft model and tools for social studies learning, interviews with principals, teachers, students, and cultural experts, student learning outcomes. Secondary data is obtained from relevant documentation and supports research from the education office and school where the study conducted. The questionnaire arranged in the form of a Likert scale, and descriptive statistical analysis techniques analyzed the results. The effectiveness test uses a before-after research design study design by comparing two groups. Namely, the experimental group gave social studies learning with the Advanced Wisdom-based learning model, while the control group uses learning that commonly used in schools namely lectures vary (lectures, question and answer, and discussion). Based on the recapitulation of students' critical thinking abilities, it was found that out of 26 students in the experimental class, the number of students had high critical thinking skills as many as 23 students (88.46%) while those with low critical thinking skills were 3 students (11.54%). In the control class results obtained, students with high critical thinking ability were 15 people (57.69%), while students with moderate critical skills were eight students (30.77), and those with low critical thinking skills were three students (11, 54%). Based on these observations it is known that the experimental class the number of students who have critical thinking skills is higher than the control class. It shows that IPS learning based on local wisdom can improve students' critical thinking skills, based on the results of the above observations, in the experimental class classically students who have critical thinking skills are 88.66% high category, whereas. In the control class 57.69%.

SOLAR-POWERED ELECTROCULTURE TECHNIQUE FOR BACKYARD FARMING

Authors: ELENOR M. REYES, GLENNJORDAN M. ACHICO

Abstracts: To make crops grow larger and faster has been the primary concern of agriculture for ages. All methods of cultivation techniques and technologies have been developed to fulfill this aim; from simple crop rotation to complex synthetic fertilizers. Another cultivation technology discovered in agriculture is the application of electricity and magnetism that can accelerate growth rates, increase yields, and improve crop quality. This technology is called electroculture. Electroculture can protect plants from diseases and insect and likewise reduce the requirements for fertilizer or pesticides. Farmers can grow bigger and better crops in less time, with less effort, and at a lower cost. Rationalizing the concept of electricity’s role in plant growth stimulation and application of solar technology, the researcher designed and developed a project that would help increase the growth of plants without losing their quality and nutrition. Electroculture with proper watering system will help the plants grow faster. Moreover, the portable solar power supply may be used to power up the project for a more cost effective operation. With this project, there will be an increase in the production of crops and may help resolve the shortage of food in the years ahead.

INVESTOR’S DEMAND FOR INSURANCE VALUATION: THE ESTATE SURVEYORS & VALUERS’ PERCEPTION

Authors: ERNEST O. ALOHAN

Abstracts: The study demonstrated the perception of estate surveyors and valuers on the demand for insurance valuation by real estate investors in Nigeria. It sought to establish the rationale for seeking insurance valuation, ascertain whether estate surveyors and valuers provides advice to their client on insurance cover against damages/losses, investigate the client’s level of response to insurance cover, level of demand for insurance valuation and the factors influencing such level of demand. To achieve this, relevant information were sourced from estate surveyors and valuers through the use of structured questionnaire and personal interview. The study adopted the use of total enumeration of the study population of estate surveying and valuation firms, representing 100% of the study population. A total of 51 questionnaire were distributed to heads of Estate Surveying and Valuation firms, out of which 46 were retrieved and analysed for the study, representing a response rate of 90.20%. The questionnaire contains information on the number of insurance valuation done per month, purpose of valuation, whether estate surveyors and valuers advice their clients on the importance and need of insuring their property and their response, and also to rank each factor influencing demand for insurance valuation as perceived by them. Data collected were analysed using descriptive statistics. Findings revealed that valuation for mortgage was more prominent with 36.96%. It further revealed that estate surveyors and valuers advise their clients on the need for insurance cover and that most real estate investors do not consent to their advice. The study further established that poor attitude towards insurance services, lack of trust for insurance and lack of adequate knowledge of insurance by investors with mean rating of 4.522, 4.196 and 4.174 respectively ranked highest among the factors influencing the demand for insurance valuation. The study recommends prompt response and payment of claims to clients by insurance companies to build trust and confidence, embark on public enlightenment programmes to create more awareness and provide adequate knowledge to property investors to increase patronage of estate surveyors and valuers for valuation on insurance purpose.

Authors: SISASENKOSI CHARLOTTE TSHUMA

Abstracts: Diarrhea is the passing of three or more liquid stools in a period of 24hours. Bulawayo Polytechnic Clinic reported an outbreak of diarrhea cases that increased from 2cases to 55 cases in a period of 24hours and totaled to 157 cases in 6days. Objectives: The objective of the study was to investigate the diarrhea outbreak at Bulawayo Polytechnic in Zimbabwe. A 1:1 unmatched case-control study was conducted from 05 June to 14 June 2014. Sample size was calculated using Epi-info package version 7. Simple random sampling was used to pick cases and controls from the list compiled by the investigator from clinic registers. A total of 82 cases and 82 controls were interviewed for the study. Acute diarrhea was significantly associated with drinking borehole water (AOR 3.89 95% CI 0.3408-2.3128), not regularly washing hands with soap (1.35 95% CI 0.1603-0.7785) and frequent water shortages (AOR 4.37 95% CI 0.1693-0.8279). To minimize risk of diarrheal cases and associated diseases, the City Municipality should conduct frequent assessment of water quality at the college; replace old water pipes with polyvinyl chloride pipes. Good hygiene practices should be encouraged to food handlers and food preparation facilities should constantly be checked for compliance of the required hygiene standards. The Bulawayo Municipality to ensure timely collection of refuse to avoid accumulation of rubbish in the bins.

MEMORY-BASED MULTI-PROCESSING METHOD FOR BIG DATA COMPUTATION

Authors: YOUSSEF BASSIL

Abstracts: The evolution of the Internet and computer applications have generated colossal amount of data. They are referred to as Big Data and they consist of huge volume, high velocity, and variable datasets that need to be managed at the right speed and within the right time frame to allow real-time data processing and analysis. Several Big Data solutions were developed, however they are all based on distributed computing which can be sometimes expensive to build, manage, troubleshoot, and secure. This paper proposes a novel method for processing Big Data using memory-based, multi-processing, and one-server architecture. It is memory-based because data are loaded into memory prior to start processing. It is multi-processing because it leverages the power of parallel programming using shared memory and multiple threads running over several CPUs in a concurrent fashion. It is one-server because it only requires a single server that operates in a non-distributed computing environment. The foremost advantages of the proposed method are high performance, low cost, and ease of management. The experiments conducted showed outstanding results as the proposed method outperformed other conventional methods that currently exist on the market. Further research can improve upon the proposed method so that it supports message passing between its different processes using remote procedure calls among other techniques.

PROSPECTIVE CONFIGURATIONS OF OPTICAL SYSTEMS FOR SMART REMOTE VISUAL TESTING CONDUCTED WITH THE UNMANNED AERIAL VEHICLES

Authors: JOSIP STEPANIć, JELENA ĆOSIć LESIčAR

Abstracts: Remote visual testing of infrastructure, power plants and other important constructions is regularly conducted. It is regularly a crucial way of collecting data about the surface conditions and overall functionality of the tested objects. It includes a large number of technical, environmental and economic parameters, because of what researchers and experts constantly try to optimise it. The use of unmanned aerial vehicles (popularly known as drones) is a novel, currently rather undeveloped approach to conducting the remote visual testing. In this paper we present and develop a concept of a smart configuration for remote visual testing. It is innovative in that it includes a manipulator mounted onto an unmanned aerial vehicle of rotocopter type. Presence of a manipulator makes possible considerably augmented scope of remote visual testing, in comparison with other approaches. Prerequisites for, as well as consequences of such an innovation are analysed and mutually compared.

OBSTACLES TO ENFORCEMENT OF BOOK COPYRIGHT LAW IN INDONESIA BASED ON THE LEGAL STRUCTURE, LEGAL SUBSTANCE, AND LEGAL CULTURE

Authors: WAHYU SUWARNI

Abstracts: The purpose of this study was to determine the constraints of copyright law enforcement, especially in books in a legal structure, legal substance and legal culture. The research method used is a normative juridical method, which comes from Copyright Act Number 28 of 2014. Through the study approach of Lawrence M. Friedmen's theory shows that the constraints of legal structure lie in the control of legal structures which generally require law enforcement procedures, such as civil procedures and criminal and administrative procedures. Whereas the substance of the legal constraints briefly changes the terms of registration {Copyright Act Number 19 of 2002 article 1 no. (13)} becomes a recording {Act Number 28 Year 2014 article 1 No. (19) on Copyright} indicates that there is no certainty law to guarantee legal protection, especially for copyrighted works that are not registered with the institution of copyright. While the legal, cultural constraints, people tend to choose cheaper goods, therefore if there is a choice between original and pirated goods, then the public will tend to choose pirated goods that are cheaper regarding price, including local books and imported books.

COMMUNICATION PLATFORMS AND COMPLIANCE WITH ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION REGULATIONS AMONG FISHCAGE OPERATORS IN TAAL VOLCANO PROTECTED LANDSCAPE, BATANGAS, PHILIPPINES

Authors: BENEDICT O. MEDINA, SERLIE B. JAMIAS

Abstracts: The study studied the role of communication platforms in the compliance of fishcage operators to the regulations of the Taal Volcano Protected Landscape or TVPL in five selected coastal municipal communities in Batangas. A total of 351 fishcage operators from 18 villages were selected by stratified proportional sampling and surveyed. A total of 13 key informants from the TVPL Executive Committee were purposely chosen for key informant interviews. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics, while the Chi Square (X2) and Pearson’s correlation analysis tested the relationships of the variables. Almost all of the respondents were male (88%); married (84%); between 29-48 years old (65%); high school graduates (58%); residents of their barangays from 21 to 61 years and above (61%); and not members of any Taal Lake-related organization (53%). Majority used interpersonal or group communication platforms such as 1) conversation with group members or their co-organization mates (75%); 2) meetings (71%); 3) face-to-face conversation (69%); 4) conversation with family members (68%); and 5) informal conversation with other residents (59%). Only a few used mass media and the new media platforms, except for television that was watched by almost half (43%) of the respondents. Majority (64%) of the respondents used the communication platforms only as needed. Statistical tests showed a significant relationship between the compliance to the TVPL regulations and the use as well as the frequency of use of the different communication platforms. Compliance was more dependent on the use of interpersonal communication platforms such as face-to-face conversations with family and peers; group communication with colleagues and residents and meetings; and with public communication such as seminars. However, the more frequent use of mass media platforms (magazine, newspaper, radio, television) and new media platforms (texting, calling, and use of Internet) can also enhance the compliance to the TVPL regulations. Results indicate that the use communication platforms that are quite relational with people (interpersonal, group, public) were statistically related with compliance. On the other hand, the frequency of the use of communication platforms that were more impersonal (mass media, new media) were statistically related with compliance. Endeavors to protect and conserve the TVPL can be more effective with interpersonal communication platforms in communicating with the fishcage operators. However, TVPL officials, especially the mayors or municipal officials, can try new media platforms and use these often enough to make a difference.

EFFECTS OF CLIMATIC VARIABILITY ON THE HYDROLOGICAL REGIME OF NIANDAN (GUINEA REPUBLIC)

Authors: IBRAHIMA BAYO, ANSOUMANE SAKUVOGUI, MAMBY KEITA

Abstracts: From the beginning of the twentieth century to the present day, the water resources of the Niger river Basin have undergone major changes, in relation to the significant climatic variations recorded in West Africa. This situation has resulted in a decrease in the water quality of the watercourses in the basin. The present study proposes to study the effects of the variation of the rainfall regime of the Niandan basin on the flow of the Niandan river, which is a tributary of Niger. In this work, the method of the trace analysis was used to highlight, during the period from 1961 to 2009, the decay of the average rainfall of upstream (1968 mm) downstream (1467 mm) of the Niandan. Regarding the determination of the effects of climate variability on the water resources of the Niandan basin, this work has proved that the flow is highly sensitive to downstream rainfall variations, with a trend in rainfall and flow. on the decline. In the south, it has been shown that although Niandan water supply comes mainly from rainwater, the rainfall is not sufficient to satisfactorily explain all the changes in Niandan flow regime.

THE LANGUAGE OF OUR DNA - SCALAR ENERGY

Authors: JERE RIVERA-DUGENIO

Abstracts: According to researchers Grazyna Fosar and Franz Bludorf, DNA is influenced by words and frequencies. According to their research, the key lies with the other 90% of the non-coding for protein DNA, often misrepresented as “junk DNA”, that serves as data storage and communication. The research of Russian biophysicist and molecular biologist Dr. Pjotr Garajajev suggests that living chromosomes function just like solitonic/holographic computers using endogenous DNA laser radiation. In simpler terms, words and sentences of our human language can recode our DNA. However, here are vital questions that are not addressed in ALL of the Russian research: 1) What is the actual language of the introns or potential DNA, 2) How does language turn on or off the DNA, and 3) How does this apply to consciousness and healing the bio-energetic body? This research paper will answer the above questions and propose a more sophisticated and advanced perspective on how language affects the introns.

MICROWAVE ASSISTED EXTRACTION OF PECTIN FROM MANGOSTEEN (GARCINIA MANGOSTANA) RIND

Authors: RHONALYN V. MAULION

Abstracts: Pectin is a complex mixture of polysaccharides that is present on plants cell wall used mainly in food and beverage industry as thickening and gelling agent. This study used Microwave Assisted Extraction to obtain pectin from fruit waste specifically mangosteen (Garcinia mangostana) rind. Central composite design is used in investigating the effect of microwave extraction condition in the yield of pectin with a total of 34 runs. Effects of extraction conditions such as A- pH of 2 - 3, B- irradiation time of 3 - 9 minutes and C - power level of (336 - 595 watts on the yield of pectin from mangosteen rind were evaluated. The factors that significantly affect the yield are pH and power level and their interactions with value of p<0.05 while irradiation time remains insignificant. At a given factors and levels, the yield of pectin ranges from 3.1% to 9.2%. Optimum yield of pectin (9.022%) can be attained at lower limit in ph of 2, irradiation time of 3 minutes and power level of 336 watts. The mathematical model for pectin extraction using this method is expressed in coded equation: Yield = 5.57 – 2.15A – 0.4169C + 0.2250AB + 0.6331AC with an F-value of 1035.21 implies the model is significant. High coefficients of determination was attained with R2 of 0.9930 against the predicted R2 of 0.9906, thus confirming adequacy of adjustment of the regression models with the experimental data. The extracted pectin from mangosteen rinds using the optimized conditions have 4.38% ash content, 12.33% moisture, 11.12% methoxyl content, 65.78% anhydrouronic acid and 95.98% degree of esterification. A high-methoxyl and rapid set pectin was attained from the mangosteen rind with the microwave assisted extraction method.

Authors: JESUS S. PAGUIGAN, MELVIN A. BALLERA

Abstracts: Social network analysis offers a unique way for teacher to visualize collaboration and communication within a course and see relationships between individuals, groups or teams. The researcher used social network analysis to the growth of collaboration in class which focuses on the structure properties of network such as degree of centrality, betweenness centrality, closeness centrality, sociogram and how it related to performance of the students. In general, the SNA enable the researcher to understand how the individual students are connected within a network. In the class, teamwork plays an important role in education, aiming for developing a set of skills only achievable through social interaction. Data showed that there is a significant difference between the student collaborative problem solving in pre-test score and post-test using social network analysis. The students performed better in the post test after a week of collaboration which were administered. This means that the proposed study is beneficial to elevate the scores of students in the teamwork and exchanging of information and ideas in chatroom. The research measured the acceptability of the proposed study to help the student to elevate their proficiency level in communication and interesting in contribution of knowledge in the group, and to see their relationship to other students. Therefore, the ability of problem solving in this research study using measurement of student learner’s attribute in online collaborative problem solving using social network analysis depicts the ability of students to use teamwork or collaboration and to use connection of ideas or knowledge across networks. The Increasing ability of problem solving of students as a whole was seen from the average score of pretest and posttest results.

PROMOTING EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH THROUGH EFFECTIVE INSTRUMENT DEVELOPMENT

Authors: MATTHEW CYRIL

Abstracts: The paper examined various processes of instrument development and projected two models: Test Development Model (TDM) I and TDM II for effective instrument development in educational research. Methods of establishing validity (Face, Content and Construct) and reliability (Test Re-test, Split Half, Cronbach Alfa and Coefficient of Concordance) of research instruments were equally highlighted. Two test theories: Classical Test Theory (CTT) and Item Response Theory (IRT) were identified as significant theories associated with test development. The two statistics which form the cornerstone of classical test theory (item difficulty and item discrimination) for establishing item facility indexes (Item Analysis) were also examined. Finally, the processes provided by the two models for instrument development projected in this paper as well as the two test theories which provide the logic and mathematical framework that underlie standard practices in test construction and use were recommended for the development of test instrument in educational research. Also, is recommended that only items found within the acceptable difficulty index and discrimination index should be retained to form final part of the developed instrument.

Abstracts: The wide increase of wireless systems and the use of software radio technologies enable the employment of a heterogeneous network. In this concept services are delivered via the network that is most efficient for that service. The solution is based on a common core network that interconnects access points of various wireless access points. A mobile host can apply multiple different access networks simultaneously to increase capacity or efficiency. The signal coverage starts within the cell, by predicting the affecting parameters on the signal power level in the uplink and downlink at the practical cases. In this paper, the concentration is completely on preprocess of network planning i.e. link budgeting of LTE and WiMAX cellular systems. This investigation can also lead the radio planner to a thorough understanding of radio wave propagation for designing mobile communication system. The mathematical model calculation mainly includes path loss, link budgets etc. Radio propagation is site specific and it varies substantially depending on geography, frequency at which system will operate mobile terminal speed, interface sources and other dynamic factors. The coverage planning used to obtain the LTE cell range is based on the required receiver sensitivity, and link budget calculations to estimate maximum allowable path loss, then the proposed approach to enhance the coverage is implemented by measuring the received signal along path from the cell center and its edge, and installing a WiMax base station on the edge. The importance of using heterogeneous technology is by estimating the change of received power in the cell edge.
