DEVELOPING MULTI-CRITERIA DECISION MAKING AND GEOGRAPHIC INFORMATION SYSTEM BASED FRAMEWORK FOR EFFECTIVE DELIVERY OF EMERGENCY OBSTETRIC CARE SERVICES IN TANZANIA

Authors: JOB A. CHAULA

Abstracts: Effective delivery of basic emergency of Emergency Medical Services (EMS) is still uncertain in rural and urban area of Tanzania. Two factors contribute to ineffective deliveries of (EMS) which are absence of a coherent policy on Emergency Medical Services (EMS) and normative framework to support EMS implementation which both have resulted to imbalance in EMS distribution patterns within rural areas. In attempt to address the challenge, this research study used Multi-Criteria Decision Making (MCDM) and Geographic Information System (GIS) to explore the policies and developing framework for effective delivery of Emergency Obstetric Care Services (EmOCS) in Tanzania. The research study reviewed the planning policy documents and approaches used to plan the EMS facility location for the better understanding of their strengths and weaknesses related to the desired location-allocation. Furthermore, the research integrating Multi-criteria Decision Making (MCDM) with Geographic Information System (GIS) techniques to develop an effective framework to support inclusive planning practices of location-based health services in Tanzania. Complex array of decision criteria including environmental, technical, economic, and social issues related to life saving were analyzed by integrating Multi-criteria Decision Making (MCDM) with Geographic Information System (GIS). The developed framework serves as tool for future planning EMS in urban and rural areas of Tanzania and Africa in large. The framework helps to determine the optimal EMS facility locations by considering the appropriate strategies for facility deployment which is to maximize the EMS coverage; the number of facilities assigned to each demand point (facility quantity); and the distance up to which a facility should service a demand point (EMS quality).

COMPARISON BETWEEN FUTURE WATER POTENTIAL AND FUTURE WATER DEMAND FOR TANZANIA WATER BASINS

Authors: SWILLA L. M, TENDWA S. M, LUFEGA S

Abstracts: Surface and ground water sources are the main water sources in Tanzania. In this study Comparison between water potential and water demand up to 2035 for Tanzania water Basins will be presented. The data for Surface water potential, Ground water potential and water demand for all nine major water basins in Tanzania for 2015, 2025 and 2035 were corrected. The Water demand considered were Rural and Urban Water demand, Irrigation, Livestock and Industrial water demand, Mining, Hydropower generation and Environmental Water Requirements. The total water potential (Surface and Ground Water) was calculated, thereafter the percentage of total water demand to total water potential was estimated for 2015, 2025 and 2035. In 2015 the percentage of total water demand to total water potential was 48.83 %, in 2025 is expected to be 56.24 % and in 2035 is expected to be 58.4 %, this implies that the country will face a water stress situation in coming years. The water potential is expected to increase by 0.92% from 2015 to 2025 and 0.071% from 2025 to 2035; this implies that the water potential is diminishing however there is slightly increase of surface water potential.

VIBRO-DYNAMIC APPROACH OF THE PLATFORM AND THE INTERFACE OF THE RAILWAYS BALLAST.

Authors: G. TCHEMOU, P. W. HUISKEN MEJOUYO

Abstracts: This study highlights the importance of the geotechnical characteristics of the platform taking into consideration the vibratory combination of systems which tend to support the separation of the particles. Considering the diffusion of the pressure in the ballast, it has been divided into three zones: ballast without overcharging, ballast under the pressure of a crossbar and ballast under the pressure of two crossbars. At first, we have to study the behaviour of the ballast in the zone without overcharge and the studies of the two aforementioned zones will be presented in future. The most possible scheme for the calculations can be simplified thus; preamble platform like a vibrant plate, ballast like a ball and distances between the axles of the trains are equal between them. The analysis of the system drives us to two equations: differential equation (platform) and polynomial equation (ballast). It should be noted that this phase of movement is only observed when the ball detaches itself from the platform. So, when the strength of contact between the two bodies annuls itself to a certain moment. What corresponds to the case that the acceleration of the weight and the movement oscillating would be in the same way.

THE EFFECT OF NUMERACY ON ATTITUDE AND CONCEPTUAL UNDERSTANDING OF MOLE CONCEPT BY GRADE 11 STUDENTS.

Authors: MISHECK MUKUTA, ASIANA BANDA

Abstracts: The achievement of students in chemistry and in mole concept in particular in Zambia’s secondary schools has remained low. One of the reasons contributing to the low achievement is the failure by the students to deal with the mathematical aspect of the mole concept. This study therefore, sought to investigate the effect of mathematical aspect of the mole concept on the achievement of the learners. In addition, the study sought to determine learners’ attitude towards the mathematical aspect of the chemistry subject. The study further sought to determine whether the effect of numeracy on achievement differ by gender. The study used a Pre-Post-test quasi experimental research design. The target population was 100 grade eleven pupils at a Secondary School in Zambia. Simple random sampling was used to select and assign two classes to be used as the experimental and control groups. The data collection instruments were Chemistry Performance Assessment Test (CPA) and a Likert scale Chemistry Related Attitude Questionnaire (CAQ).Data was presented descriptively using frequency tables and analysed using means and percentages while hypotheses were tested using the independent sample t-test. The results show that incorporating the teaching of basic mathematics concepts in the teaching and learning of the mole concept has a positive effect on student’s achievement. When incorporated, the understanding of the concept is enhanced and this results in high achievement. The results also show that positive attitude towards the mathematical aspect of chemistry subject fosters high achievement. However, the results showed that numeracy skills has no effect on achievement in mole concept depending on one’s gender. These results have an implication to teaching and learning of mole concept.

WORK LIFE BALANCE AS MEDIATOR BETWEEN COUNTERPRODUCTIVE WORK BEHAVIOR AND TURNOVER INTENTION AMONG EMPLOYEES WORKING IN A BPO COMPANY IN METRO MANILA

Authors: SARAH JANE N. SANTOS, ROSALIA T. CABALLERO

Abstracts: Work provides earnings for everyday living but maintaining a balanced and healthy lifestyle while working is challenging. This study aims to identify the mediating effect of Work Life Balance on the relationship between Counterproductive Work Behavior and Turnover Intention among employees working in a BPO company in Metro Manila. A quantitative research design and mediation analysis was used in this study. Data were collected from 156 permanent employees using a researcher-made demographic questionnaire and standardized questionnaires. Based on the findings, the employees are experiencing struggle balancing their work and personal life, still commit few minimal negative behaviors and average response from the employees showed intent to leave the organization. It was also revealed that counterproductive work behavior significantly predicts turnover intention. The mediation analysis results also showed that WLB is a significant mediator between CWB and TOI. Mediation suggests that the influence of counterproductive work behavior and turnover intention is weakened by work life balance. This implies that whenever the employees are able to balance their work and personal life, CWB decreases. Thus, WLB is also instrumental in minimizing the employees’ turnover intention. These findings were utilized as basis for the creation of a retention program to enhance work life balance and minimize employee turnover.

A FOUR YEARS RECORDS ANALYSIS OF NON-TRAUMATIC GYNECOLOGICAL ABDOMINAL EMERGENCIES IN MEKELLE HOSPITAL, MEKELLE, TIGRAY, ETHIOPIA DURING THE PERIOD OF FEBRUARY 2009 TO FEBRUARY 2012

Authors: GIRMA ABDISSA, G/MESKEL MIRUTSE

Abstracts: The aim of this study is to assess the magnitude and management outcome of non-traumatic gynecological abdominal emergencies in Mekele hospital from February 2009 to February 2012. Gynecological emergencies are common in women in the reproductive age group. The most common gynecologic causes of the acute abdomen are ectopic pregnancy, ovarian torsion,PID and tubo-ovarian abscess. The rate of ectopic pregnancies per 1000 reported pregnancies increased fourfold in the United States from 1970 to 1992. , the highest EP incidence rates were observed in African countries (between 0.5 and2.3% of live births) The proportion of all maternal deaths attributed to ectopic pregnancy, however, increased from 8 percent in 1970 to 11 percent in the 3-year period ending 1990 (konini and associates, 1997).Torsion of the adnexa is an infrequent cause of pain in the lower abdomen. However, torsion is a common gynecologic surgical emergency, with a prevalence of 2.7%. The study shows among 146 studied groups 126[86.3%] cards were available among these,Pre operatively 69[54.8%] ectopic pregnancy, 32[25.4%] pelvic inflammatory disease, 12[9.5%], ovarian torsion,8[6.3%] Tubo ovarian abscess and 5[4%] others. Intra operatively 93.6% had the diagnosis and the rest 6.4% had different per-operative diagnosis. Among 95 procedures done the majority of them 73.6% had no complication the rest 23.2%, 3.2% had mild and major complication. The prevalence of non-traumatic gynecological abdominal emergencies were 13.3% with delays hospital admit ion of 66.7% and preoperative diagnosis difference of 4.6% with 25.9% post-operative complication therefor early diagnosis and treatment, intensive history and physical examination in addition to some diagnostic tools and minimizing number of visitor in recovery rooms may help to reduces these complication

RHETORICAL DEVICES USED IN PROJECTING HUMANITARIAN ISSUES RELATIVE TO NONVIOLENCE GLEANED FROM THE SELECTED SPEECHES OF MAHATMA GANDHI

Authors: THI THU HUONG LE, MARIA LUISA A. VALDEZ

Abstracts: Diverse disciplines with distinctive strategies and theoretical orientations have squared off the multi-level and multi-dimensional theory of nonviolence. Nowadays, people worldwide saw a remarkable number of humanitarian crises relative to nonviolence as well as the supporters who have been on the ground continuously working and helping people to survive despite unimaginable circumstances. Relative to this, writers use literature and language as channel in projecting their advocacies, philosophy and rhetorical style. This study is an analysis of the rhetorical devices used in projecting the humanitarian issues relative to nonviolence gleaned from the selected works of Mahatma Gandhi with the end view of identifying the teachings that may be drawn from the analysis which shall benefit the Filipino and Vietnamese students. Results of the analysis showed that the representative literary works of Mahatma Gandhi may be considered as a socio-philosophical document of his time showing the humanitarian issues in India and South Africa. Gandhi employed rhetorical devices such as ethos, pathos and logos in the selected literary pieces to project humanitarian issues and to give a deeper meaning to the concept of nonviolence. Filipino and Vietnamese students can glean teachings on nonviolence from the representative literary works of Mahatma Gandhi and imbibe his spirit and carry forward his legacy by practicing his nonviolent principle.

REFLECTIONS OF ENVIRONMENTAL CONCERN AND SUSTAINABILITY GLEANED FROM AL GORE’S “EARTH IN THE BALANCE”

Authors: THị THU HA PHUNG, MARIA LUISA A. VALDEZ

Abstracts: Nowadays, an enormous number of environmental problems that threaten the continued ability of both natural and human systems to flourish is generated by human action. Solving the critical environmental problems of biodiversity loss, global warming, pollution and water scarcity are perhaps the greatest challenges of the 21st century. The challenges posed by these four environmental problems and the forces that drive them seem insurmountable. Thus, this qualitative study was conducted to analyze the reflections on environmental concern and sustainability gleaned from Al Gore’s literary work pointing out the implications of the findings of the study in teaching environmental stewardship. Findings of the analysis revealed that global warming is the greatest environmental threat of this time. Gore’s literary work portrays vivid reflections and deep concerns on environmental issues and continues to confront men with reflective challenges. To give deeper meaning on the concept of environmental stewardship and logical framework to his work through language as well as to motivate the readers’ imagination to visualize the characters, scenes and situations more clearly, Gore employed literary devices such as foreshadowing and flashback in the selected literary pieces. Through Al Gore’s writings, this environmental steward could inspire educators specifically the Filipino and Vietnamese academicians to do their share to support this advocacy by adhering to the concepts that promote environmental education and by utilizing the appropriate pedagogical strategies associated with them.

THE EXPRESSION OF LOCAL VALUES IN PERFORMANCE ART OF MALANG MASK PUPPET

Authors: ROBBY HIDAJAT

Abstracts: This article is written based on a research concerning Malang Mask Puppet in Malang Regency, East Java. Malang Mask Puppet is performance art on puppet genre and it has been growing widely in Malang region. This performance is played by dancers who wear mask in different characters. Public acknowledgment to this performance has been started since the article of Pigeaud in 1938. Malang Mask Puppet performance is led by puppet master and accompanied by Javanese gamelan music, and these components have been the standard of mask puppet performance since 18th century. Some informants of this research still found time in 1970s to witness their grandfathers acting as the dancer in mask puppet performance. Therefore, research is aimed to explore local values expressed in Malang Mask Puppet performance, especially when it presents the Story of Panji. This story becomes a central theme in mask puppet performance because it represents psychological wellbeing, life philosophy, and social conditions of Malang people. Mask puppet performance is also played for many events, such as sacred ritual, tolak balak ceremony, and hajatan celebration. Method of research includes interview, observation, and review of documentation. Data analysis uses interpretation theory by which the author acts as main instrument to understand, comprehend, and internalize information provided by informants. Result of research indicates that three local values are expressed in Malang Mask Puppet performance, and these are (1) strengthening connectivity to ancestral spirits, (2) enforcing social solidarity and social bonding, and (3) signing initiation phase.

PROFESSIONAL ACCOUNTABILITY OF SECONDARY SCHOOL HEADS TOWARDS QUALITY ASSURANCE

Authors: ANGELICA F. OLASO, RANDY M. BAJA

Abstracts: The study aimed to describe the professional accountability of administrators towards quality assurance in the Division of Lipa City. It examined the extent of the school heads professional accountability in the areas of teachers’ performance, student achievement, staff development and learning environment. At the end, this paper proposed a quality assurance project. It utilized a descriptive research design and used the triangulation method of data analysis, questionnaire and focus group discussion as tools to be able to gather pertinent data. With the inclusion of 36 school heads and 259 teachers from the public secondary schools of the Division of Lipa City, results were obtained. In assessing the school heads’ professional accountability towards teachers’ performance, student achievement, staff development and learning environment, both the administrators and the teacher- respondents gave a perception that their school administrators’ accountability is highly evident. Hence, in testing the hypothesis, it was found out that there is no significant difference between the perceptions of the administrators and the teachers on the administrators’ professional accountability. Data also revealed that the implementation of policies that would govern both students' and staff's behavior and support to ICT integration in the teaching-learning process and other school transactions are some of the issues and concerns school heads are facing. Taking into consideration these findings, the researcher proposed a quality assurance project that can help improve the administrators’ accountability and thereby, improve the quality of education that the school offers.

THE CORRELATION BETWEEN TECHNOLOGICAL INFLUENCE OF GLOBALIZATION AND BODY IMAGE OF STUDENTS

Authors: DR. THEREZIA O. CONTI, MARIA EUFATIMA M. WAGAN

Abstracts: Globalization has influenced every individual, by means of technology, in every aspect of life. Technological influence of globalization and body image are subjects of numerous researchers, nowadays. Hence, finding the association between the two variables enabled existing literature to have a better understanding between these concepts. The descriptive type of research was used in the study to gather the needed data and information and information regarding the correlation between technological influence of globalization and body image of students. To achieve the objectives of the study, the researchers utilized a validated self-constructed questionnaire for 308 respondents. Random sampling was used in the study. The gathered information was analyzed using Spearman’s Rho and its corresponding hypothesis testing. The study revealed that all of the student respondents are exposed to different global media that affect the ways they present themselves to others. The study revealed that there is a significant weak positive correlation between the two variables. Based on the results of the study, it is recommended that students should limit their exposure to different global media so that they will not be affected by the beauty standards set by the society that are usually seen on global media. Moreover, parents and teachers should work together in developing the students’ self-concept for them to have a positive body image.

ESTABLISHING THE EFFECT OF SAVING STRATEGIES ON WEALTH CREATION IN UGANDA.

Authors: BENARD NUWATUHAIRE, ANDREW AINOMUGISHA

Abstracts: The study was carried out to assess the effect of savings strategies on wealth creation in Uganda. Using both quantitative and qualitative approaches, the study adopted correlational and cross-sectional designs on a sample of 96 respondents. Data analysis was carried out at univariate, bivariate and multivariate. Univariate analysis involved use of percentages and descriptive statistics in particular the mean, bivariate was carried out using correlation and multivariate analysis was carried out using regression. The study found out that savings strategies did not significantly affect wealth creation. The study also found out that gender, education level, working experience, monthly income and family background were statistically positive significant factors affecting wealth creation. It was therefore concluded that whereas savings strategies did not influence wealth creation, five personal savings factors namely, gender, education level, working experience, monthly income and family background did. The study recommended that employers both in private sector and public civil services should enhance the remuneration of employees, the government of Uganda should ensure saving training programme and policy makers should design policies that encourage savings to help people create wealth.

KNOWLEDGE, ATTITUDE AND PRACTICES (KAP) REGARDING MEAT SAFETY AND SANITATION AMONG CARCASS HANDLERS OPERATING AT THE YAOUNDé SLAUGHTERHOUSE, CAMEROON.

Authors: CHELEA MATCHAWE, LUCY M. NDIP, ANNA ZULIANI, JULIE J.T. TSAFACK, BONGLAISIN J. NSAWIR, EDI PIASENTIER, NGOUPAYO JOSEPH

Abstracts: Meat handlers like butchers constitute the main vehicles of microbial contamination of fresh meat and may also be asymptomatic carriers of food-borne pathogens. This study was aimed at evaluating the knowledge, attitude and practices concerning meat safety and sanitation among carcass handlers in Cameroon. Structured written questionnaire, interviews and observations were used to assess the knowledge, attitude and practices on meat safety and sanitation among carcass handlers at the Yaoundé abattoir upon informed consent and ethical clearance by the Cameroon Bioethics Initiative (CAMBIN). Fifty-one out of 100 people working at the Yaoundé abattoir participated to the study. Though the mean scores for carcass handlers’ attitude and practice were averagely acceptable (54.69 and 53.12% respectively), that of knowledge was poor (49.02%). There was significant negative relationship between knowledge level and the education level but positive association between the carcass handlers’ attitude and knowledge levels (p < 0.05). However, there was no significant correlation between practice and knowledge and between practice and attitude (P > 0.05). Findings from this study reveal the importance for developing adequate intervention measures during carcass processing to minimise public health risks. In fact, the respondents’ scores indicated a need for formal training on meat safety and sanitation as well as the need to improve available facilities and routine practices. In addition, the frequent occurrence of gastro-enteritis among the personnel of the Yaoundé abattoir poses a strong and urgent appeal for foodborne disease surveillance and control at the abattoir level aimed at increasing food safety in the Cameroonian food chain.

ENGAGING SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS THROUGH COMPETITIVE COLLABORATION

Authors: LEILA M. SECO

Abstracts: This paper aims to describe the impact of competitive collaboration on the engagement of Grade 11 students of Banaba West National High School. It also describes the challenges met, the problems encountered, and the insights gained on the utilization of the strategy. Qualitative methods were employed in this action research as they are useful in collecting attitudinal data. Interview, focus group discussion and participant observation were utilized to collect data. Triangulation was used to improve the credibility of the findings of the study. Results with 39 students show that a balance between competition and collaboration can be achieved, with learning goals as the focus instead of the competition itself. Competitive collaboration can offer a valuable formative tool to educators to enhance student motivation for better learning outcomes. The findings of this action research remain exploratory in nature. More confirmatory studies may be done, preferably quantitative research to further confirm the findings. The holistic approach is used as it allows different methods of data collection. Unlike other researches, competition and collaboration are not presented as mutually exclusive terms but as complementary concepts that educators may use to engage learners.

PERFORMANCE MAPPING OF OPTICAL MARK RECOGNITION (OMR) MACHINES IN THE DIVISION OF BATANGAS CITY: BASIS FOR PROGRAM ENHANCEMENT

Authors: LILIBETH M. VIRTUS

Abstracts: This study aimed to determine the performance mapping of OMR machines in terms of usage, advantages and disadvantages and map the results of the seven machines, compare the results done by the teacher manually in order to recommend a program on the utilization of the OMR to uplift the performance of the students different schools of the division of Batangas City. The study used qualitative design using descriptive-thematic synthesis and quantitative using correlation of statistics results. Purposive sampling was utilized in choosing seven (7 )participants from seven (7) schools with OMR machines in the Division of Batangas City. A total of seven (7) OMR machines were used to map the performance, seven (7) teacher- operators were interviewed in gathering data. The statistical tools used were frequency mean and t-test. The study revealed that OMR machine is useful in data scanning scannable answer sheets of students quarter examinations, it gives quick and accurate assessment results but enable to process thin paper, and improper shading, and sometimes experienced technical problem just like any other machines. Meanwhile, all the seven (7) machines tested generated exactly the same results for a specific examination sample in mathematics. Further results shows that there is no significant difference between the results taken from the OMR machines and teacher’s computed results. Thus, the proposed program maybe used to enhance the utilization of OMR machines in the division and uplift students achievement. The results of this study may remove the doubt of the users and the division personnel on the reliability and validity of the data scanned by the machines. Thus, the results may be used to plan and implement a more comprehensive program in order to raise the achievement of the learners within the division.

Abstracts: Obesity, one of the most commonly prevailing conditions is recognized as an important risk factor for the development of hypertension. The purpose of the study was to identify the association between body mass index, waist circumference, waist-hip ratio and blood pressure among students in the University of Peradeniya, Sri Lanka. Although there had been studies that have assessed these parameters and its risk factors for older adults and the elderly, there is a paucity of such data among Sri Lankan young adults. Thorough knowledge of these parameters and predisposing risk factors is vital in the modification of lifestyle and to enhance the quality of life. This was a descriptive cross-sectional study carried out among 646 students of the University of Peradeniya in 2017. Anthropometric measures, blood pressure measures were collected and family history status was assessed using a self-administered questionnaire. Standard equipment and procedures used to measure Body weight, height, waist and hip circumference and blood pressure of the subjects. Prevalence of obesity was 5% and 2.6% among male and female subjects respectively. The prevalence of hypertension among male participants was 3.15% and 1.41% among female participants. BMI had significant positive correlation with systolic blood pressure (SBP) (r=0.383) and diastolic blood pressure (DBP) (r=0.336) for all subjects (p<0.01). Waist to hip ratio had positive correlation with SBP(r=0.273) and DBP (0.175) for males (p<0.01) and positive correlation with SBP(r=0.109) and DBP (0.118) for females (p<0.05).Family history of obesity and hypertension were associated with BMI and Blood pressure values respectively.

PHYSIOLOGICAL RESPONSES OF RABBITS TO ORAL VITAMIN E SUPPLEMENTATION DURING OXIDATIVE STRESS INDUCED BY SHORT-TERM HYPOTHERMIA

Authors: JOHNSON, N. C., DIRI, M., OWEN, O. J.

Abstracts: Physiological responses of rabbits to oral vitamin E supplementation during oxidative stress induced by short-term hypothermia were studied. Twenty four (24) male New Zealand White rabbits of 8 – 10 weeks of age and weighed 800-1000g were used in the experiment. The rabbits were randomly assigned to their treatment groups: T0 (control), T1 (hypothermia) and T2 (hypothermia + vitamin E). The experiment duration was six weeks. The animals were fed similar diets throughout the experimental duration except that T2 in the last four days of the experiment received 460mg/kg body weight of oral vitamin E (dl alpha tocopheryl acetate) supplementation daily. 24 hours after the last administration of vitamin E T0 rabbits were dipped into a water of body temperature (370C) whereas T1 and T2 rabbits were dipped into a water of 10-120C with their heads up for five minutes after which their blood samples were immediately collected and snap frozen. Body temperatures of the animals after dipping were T0 (37.9 ± 0.5), T1 (34 ± 1) and T2 (34.2 ± 0.7). Catalase (CAT) showed no significant differences (p > 0.05) in all the treatment groups. Superoxide dismutase (SOD) was significantly lower (p < 0.05) in T2 compared with T0 and T1 which had similar levels (p > 0.05). . Glutathione (GSH) was significantly different (p < 0.05) among treatments but T1 animals showed the lowest value. Glutathione Peroxidase (GSH-Px) was significantly different (p < 0.05) for all treatments but T1 animals showed the lowest concentration. Oxidized form of glutathione (GSSH) concentration was significantly different (p < 0.05) for all treatments but T2 animals demonstrated lowest concentration. Vitamin E concentration was significantly different (p < 0.05) among treatments with T2 animals showed the highest concentration. Malondialdehyde (MDA) concentration was significantly different (p < 0.05) for T0, T1 and T2 but T0 demonstrated the lowest value. It was concluded that administration of oral vitamin E at 460kg/mg of body weight can up-regulate the activities of anti-oxidants while simultaneously reduce pro-oxidants in rabbits during hypothermic condition.
