EVALUATION OF EFFECTS OF PHOSPHATE FERTILIZERS ON GROWTH AND YIELDS OF FOUR SWEET POTATO VARIETIES IN KERICHO COUNTY

Authors: SAMSON KIRUI, PETER KAMAU, DAVID MUSHIMIYIMANA

Abstracts: Sweet potato (ipomoea batatas (L) Lam) is among the most important root and tuber food crops in the world, ranked seventh (based on production) and per capita consumption is 24 kg per year in Kenya. Sweet potato tubers are rich in vitamin A, B and C and Minerals such as K, Na, Cl, P & C and therefore Production of orange flesh sweet potato is important particularly for children and pregnant mothers in Sub Saharan Africa who are often exposed to vitamin A desiciency. Production of sweet potato is constraints by inadequate knowledge on type of fertilizer and rates, low yielding varieties with low dry matter content and varietal suitability to higher altitudes. Availability of planting materials of sweet potato suitable for high agro-ecological zones remains a major constraint in promotion of high yielding orange flesh sweet potato in Soin/Sigowet Sub County, Kericho County. In order to address this challenges a study was conducted to find out varietal performance of four Orange flesh sweet potatoes under different phosphate levels in the medium altitudes areas of Kericho. The main objective of the study was to determine the yield performance of the Four Orange Sweet potato varieties under three phosphate fertilizer levels. The Four Orange flesh Sweet potato varieties were Ken spots 1, 3, 4, and 5 while the three Phosphate levels were 0 kg P2O5kg/ha, 30 kg P2O5kg/ha and 60 kg P2O5kg/ha) . Randomized completed block design was used with three replicates. All Growth parameters( vine length, Number of vines per plant) and yield components (marketable and non marketable storage roots per plant, root yield per hectare, and Level of Dry matter content) for the four sweet varieties, (%) were significant (p < 0.05). In terms of production per hectare, Ken Spot 1 produced significantly higher root yield per hectare than all the other three varieties and recommended for medium altitudes zones of Soin/Sigowet Sub County of Kericho County. Overall, Ken Spot 1 produced significantly higher root yield per hectare than all the other three varieties

¬¬EXPLORING STUDENTS’ IMAGE CONCEPTS OF MATHEMATICAL FUNCTIONS THROUGH ERROR ANALYSIS

Authors: DOMINGA C. VALTORIBIO, MELANIE G. GURAT, GEROME H. BAUTISTA

Abstracts: Students do not necessarily use the definitions presented to them when determining examples or non-examples of given mathematical ideas. Instead, they utilize the concept image they carry with them as a result of experiences with such examples and non-examples. Hence, teachers should try exploring students’ images of various mathematical concepts in order to improve communication between students and teachers. This suggestion can be addressed through error analysis. This study therefore is a descriptive-qualitative type that looked into the errors committed by senior high school students in dealing with mathematical functions, explored the underlying reasons for such errors, and provided recommendations on how students could learn to manage their errors and how teachers could realize how to manage students’ errors. Initial findings showed that the students generally demonstrated mathematical, logical and strategic errors. Mathematical error was generally exhibited in their inability to use properties and operations properly. Logical error was exhibited in their false arguments, rearranging concepts, improper classifications, arguing cyclically, and using equivalent transforms. Strategic error was manifested in their not being able to distinguish patterns, lack of integral concept, and not being able to transform a word problem into symbols. Errors prevailed despite the students’ positive view and confidence in mathematics not only because of poor image concepts but because of lack of exposure to certain important mathematical tasks. Further investigation on the other sources of these errors is therefore necessary.

IMPROVING PRODUCTIVITY THROUGH EFFECTIVE SOIL, WATER AND NUTRIENT MANAGEMENT IN LIBERIA

Authors: YANQUOI H, HIAMA D. P, JONES M,

Abstracts: Research on soil amendment and phosphorus fertilizer to increase crop productivity in Liberia has been limited to cereals with less emphasis on rice. A field experiment was therefore carried out at the Central Agricultural Research Institute, Suakoko, Liberia to improve rice productivity through effective soil, water and nutrient management. The experiment consisted of a factorial arrangement of five levels of mineral fertilizer (MF), five levels of a combination of MF and cattle manure (CM) and five levels of a combination of MF and poultry manure (PM), arranged in a randomized complete block design with four (4) replications. The mineral fertilizer consisted of a combination of NPK. The poultry or cattle manure were applied at the rate of 40 kg. Different combinations of N, P, K at three levels of 90, 60 and 120 kg/ha were used to form sub-treatments. An improved rice cultivar (Arica 2) was used as the planting material. At harvest the tallest plant (96.66 cm), leaf length (13.050cm), maximum grain yield (3.98 tons/ha), above ground biomass (13.516 tons/ha) fresh grain plus straw weight (9.001) was recorded from PM + MF1. Number of effective tillers per hill (13.52), the longest panicle (23.11 cm) and panicle weight were found in plot supplied with PM+MF4. CM+MF3 produced the highest weight of 1000 seeds (31.93 g), ha-1). Although the highest biological yield was recorded from PM + MF1 treatment, but statistically similar result were found from PM+MF2, PM+MF4 and PM+MF5 treatments. It was obvious that yield of rice can be increased substantially with the judicious application of organic manure with chemical fertilizer.

A COMPARATIVE STUDY OF LRC, NNLS, KNN, AND SPARSE REPRESENTATION BASED CLASSIFICATION METHODS BASED ON AUDIO FEATURES

Authors: NU WAR

Abstracts: Video comprises of two signal modes the acoustic and visual. The visual information is potentially more difficult to extract. In this work, only acoustic signal mode are considered and assessed for the task of genre classification. In the video genre classification field, there are many genres in the real world such as music, sport, information, education, news, and so on. In this paper, the three genres are only considered to classify such as cartoon, sport and music. The experiments with them have also provided a reference of the performance of such systems when dealing with the own video data set. Furthermore, it has been experimented with five classification methods (SRC, NNLS, LRC, MSRC, and kNN) in order to improve accuracy and to see relevant aspects and processes of them. It consists of discrete wavelet subband features, then computes the mean and variances for all. Furthermore, MFCC features are also implemented in feature extraction. Finally, a proper evaluation of the solution has been done. The overall accuracy and classification are also shown in the experimental results.

Authors: BENDOUINA KHADIDJA, HADJIDJ EL DJOUNID, KHELAFI HAMID

Abstracts: Algeria represents an example by which one the phenomenon of the urban sprawl can be observed and studied, in particular these last decades. His appearance of new urban extensions in the peripheries of our cities is only consolidating the old armatures which came out in the colonial period around the peripheral crowns. This spatial expansion generated by several factors quoted previously, gave birth to an urban phenomenon containing a multitude of troubles: urbanistic, economic as well as social .Released through the text which follows an analysis between the town planning and between the urban sociology to describe and study one of the oldest districts ring peripheral of Oran which is Sidi El Bachir recording a blatant deficit in various sectors. Placed in the outskirts of the city of Oran this district exists since the colonial period and knows for these last decades.

DETERMINANTS OF LABOR TURNOVER IN THE BPO INDUSTRY: TOWARDS THE DEVELOPMENT OF HR RETENTION MODEL

Authors: RUSSELL C. DE OCAMPO, HECTOR M. AGUILING

Abstracts: Employee turnover is one of the biggest challenges of the BPO industry in the Philippines. Though there have been lots of studies on turnover, few studies have examined turnover in the BPO sector. This study aims to identify the significant factors that affect the labor turnover; thereafter, develop a retention model from these results. Survey questionnaires regarding the levels of influence and importance of 12 identified factors were distributed to a sample of 387 BPO employees. Results show that the perceived levels of influence and importance for Career and Development were the highest among employees. Further, the perceived levels of importance and influence for the factors of the same type have a significantly positive high correlation with each other. Additionally, most of the significant differences on the perceived levels of influence and importance were present when the respondents are grouped according to educational attainment and tenure.

RISK COMMUNICATION IN THE HEALTHCARE SECTOR: A CASE STUDY OF RISK COMMUNICATION AMONG THE DOCTORS, NURSES, AND PATIENTS IN KENEMA GOVERNMENT HOSPITAL IN SIERRA LEONE

Authors: KENNEI GBESSAY MOMOH, RAYMOND MORIE MUSA, DR. SAIDU CHALLAY

Abstracts: This study investigated the various forms of risk communication among doctors, nurses and patients in the healthcare delivery at the Kenema Government Hospital (KGH). The main objectives of this research were to identify the forms of risk communication among doctors, nurses and patients; assess the level of awareness of, and involvement in the various forms of risk communication; identify the channels of risk communication and the impact of risk communication on the healthcare delivery in the study area. In order to collect relevant data and information from the various sources, a number of data collection and analysis tools and techniques were employed. These included the use of survey tools such as questionnaires and focus group discussions that targeted target groups of respondents that included medical doctors, nurses, healthcare givers and patients. Data were analysed and presented using tables and graphs. Research findings indicated that the healthcare services at the Kenema Government Hospital were characterised by deceptive diagnosis of test results, inattentive application of intravenous injections, misreading of prescriptions, rampant self-treatments by patients without prior knowledge of healthcare providers. Shortage of human resource, poverty and the fact that Sierra Leoneans were considered non-nationalistic were found to be major causes of risk communication in healthcare delivery. Also, errors were seen as the main reasons for deformation and untimely deaths at the Kenema Government Hospital. To improve on the current forms of risk communication at the Kenema Government Hospital, Government of Sierra Leone should endeavour to minimize absolute poverty, and close the gap of income inequalities among Sierra Leoneans. Additionally, the Government of Sierra Leone (GoSL) should expand educational opportunities in terms of human resource development, recruit staff with the right knowledge, skills, and aptitudes. On their part, Sierra Leoneans should inculcate the spirit of nationalism and love towards their fellow Sierra Leonean especially when they are sick and in need of help.

ASSESSING THE LEVEL OF AWARENESS AND INVOLVEMENT OF FARMERS IN AGRICULTURAL PROGRAMMES IMPLEMENTED IN LUAWA CHIEFDOM, KAILAHUN DISTRICT, EASTERN SIERRA LEONE

Authors: RAYMOND MORIE MUSA, DR. SAFFA BARBEE MASSAQUOI, DR. SAIDU CHALLAY

Abstracts: This study aimed at investigating the agricultural programmes adopted for promoting food security in Luawa Chiefdom, Kailahun District by government agencies, Non-Governmental Organizations (NGO’s) and communities in the chiefdom. The study was conducted in Luawa Chiefdom, Kailahun District. Luawa is a class (A) chiefdom which shares borders with both the Republic of Guinea, and Liberia. The design of this study is a descriptive one, which was aimed at assessing the agricultural programmes adopted for promoting food security in the Luawa chiefdom. A purposeful sample of eighty (80) farmers was used for this study. This sample was derived from an estimated major farming population of one hundred and twenty (120) farmers identified in the communities within the chiefdom. The study revealed that farmers are aware of, and are involved in all of the agricultural Progammes adopted by government, NGOs and the communities. However, their level of awareness and involvement were limited for the following programmes: Construction of food processing plants; training in post-harvest losses; construction of fish ponds; training in food processing; and training in food preservation. In order to improve on the current level of awareness of and involvement in agricultural programmes awareness campaigns and participatory initiatives should be created among farmers, the government, NGOs and the communities. Furthermore, farmers should endeavour to further adopt all identified agricultural programmes in the Luawa Chiefdom. Trunk and Feeder roads should be constructed or rehabilitated in the chiefdom in order to facilitate this process.

THE RELATIONSHIP OF PERCEIVED ORGANIZATIONAL SUPPORT AND PERCEIVED SUPERVISOR SUPPORT TO WORK ENGAGEMENT AMONG BPO-RPO EMPLOYEES

Authors: RUSSELL C. DE OCAMPO, HAYYA NICHAELA DANAO, ALYSSA MARIE PEñA

Abstracts: Determining what drives the employees to be more engaged with their work is essential for developing better human resource practices in any organizations. Organizational and supervisor support are two aspects which have been linked to work engagement in different studies over the years. This study specifically aims to understand the relationship between organizational support and supervisor support to work engagement among Business Process Outsourcing employees, specifically workers from Recruitment Process Outsourcing industry in Metro Manila, Philippines. A descriptive correlational method of research was used in this study, using three tools: 8-item Survey of Perceived Organizational Support by Eisenberger, Huntington, Hutchison, and Sowa (1986), Perceived Supervisor Support Scale by Hammer, Kossek, Yragui, Bodner, and Hanson (2009), and the 17-statement Utrecht Work Engagement Scale by Bakker and Schaufeli (2003). The survey questionnaire was administered to a sample of 328 respondents from a population of 2,217 BPO-RPO employees from five (5) companies in Metro Manila. Data collection took place from March 5 to March 30, 2018. The analysis of the collected data included percentage, weighted mean, and standard deviation to summarize and describe the data, and Pearson r Correlation Coefficient to measure the relationship of perceived organizational support and perceived supervisor support to work engagement of employees. The findings showed that there was a strong organizational and supervisor support to the BPO-RPO employees from their current companies. Moreover, the results revealed that there is a high and significant relationship between the companies’ organizational and supervisor support with the BPO-RPO employees’ work engagement.

THE ORGANISATION FOR THE HARMONISATION OF BUSINESS LAW IN AFRICA (OHADA) SYSTEM: OVERVIEW OF SOME BENEFITS AND PROBLEM AREAS

Authors: NGAUNDJE DORIS LENO

Abstracts: As much as the Organisation for the Harmonisation of Business Law in Africa (OHADA) aims to improve the legal environment for business, the harmonisation process should be seen as a tool of economic integration with several advantages. Despite the achievements and benefits, OHADA, like other regional integration efforts in Africa, has some temporary drawbacks that may become permanent if no effort is made to overcome them. The primary focus of the paper is to present OHADA’s background; offer an overview of some of the salient benefits of OHADA’s institutional and regulatory framework; consider OHADA’s problem areas; and propose possible solutions to the problems. The value of the paper, therefore, lies in the insight it offers into OHADA, the benefits and problems of its institutional and regulatory framework. It is also important because it is laying the foundation in making the OHADA structure available for all Africans.

EARLY WARNING SYSTEM IN EDUCATION

Authors: REGINALD ARVIND JNR KUMAR

Abstracts: With the changes in education from face to face teaching to more online based learning and teaching, there is an increasing number of students enrolled into online courses and virtual classes. One of the major disadvantages of online learning is the difficulty to track students who are at risk of failure in a course. A method that can be used to keep track of these students is the Early Warning System (EWS). Only identifying students that are at risk does not ease their risk factors or assists students to graduate or progress in a course, however, the EWS has the ability to predict which students would have difficulty in completing a course or programme, ultimately this would also enable success of students. The EWSs assists educators to ensure students do not “fall through the cracks” and they receive the required attention.
