KNOWLEDGE, ATTITUDES, AND ADHERENCE OF MOTHERS TO CONTRACEPTIVE USE
Authors: JENNY O. ANDRADA
Abstracts: This study determined the knowledge, attitude, and adherence of mothers to contraceptive use. It dealt with the profiles of the mothers like their age, civil status, highest educational attainment, number of years using the contraceptive, and the type of contraceptive use. A descriptive research design was used in the study utilizing different statistical tools like frequency and percentage, t-test, weighted mean, and analysis of variance (ANOVA). The respondents were young adults, who had their own families, did not pursue tertiary education, had jobs earning an average amount, with an average number of children, mostly used pills, used contraceptives for few years, and all of them got their supply in the health center. The respondents were knowledgeable on the use of contraceptives, and moderately observed the different instructions provided by the health care providers. Mothers below 20 years old, with more children and longer years of using contraceptives, have higher levels of adherence. Younger mothers perceived that adherence to the use of contraceptives will help them prevent unwanted pregnancies. No significant difference was detected in adherence to the use of contraceptives as indicated in the computed t-value of -1.125. Significant differences exist in knowledge and attitude. College undergraduates whose family income is between 10,001-20,000 pesos have a significantly higher extent of knowledge and a more positive attitude. Employed mothers have a higher extent of knowledge on the use of contraceptives as compared to unemployed ones. towards the use of contraceptives. Those with higher educational attainment, and longer use of contraceptives, have more positive attitudes towards the use of contraceptives. Further studies can be replicated in a wider perspective to further improve the knowledge, attitudes, and adherence of mothers on contraceptive use.

YEAR-LONG MONITORING OF CORAL RECRUITS AND ITS CORRELATION TO THE ABIOTIC AND BIOTIC FACTORS IN CORAL GARDEN AND ANGEL’S COVE, TALICUD ISLAND, ISLAND GARDEN CITY OF SAMAL
Authors: BAGANI FIDEL A. EVASCO
Abstracts: The study focuses on coral recruits and their correlation to biotic and abiotic factors. Coral Recruits were assessed in two sites, namely Coral Garden and Angels Cove in Talicud Island, Island Garden City of Samal. They were found at varied depths: 6 meters, 13 meters, and 20 meters, with a duration period of at least 12 months, specifically between January – December 2017. The pairwise correlation between coral count and abiotic and biotic factors was also analyzed using Spearman’s Rho, and the correlation result was true in all sites. Multi-correlation between coral count and abiotic and biotic factors across all depths was analyzed through Principal Component Analysis, which showed no differences between the two sites. The data collection method utilized SCUBA, and observation is done through visual observation and the utilization of a Camera as a photo documentation of the settlement found on the four sides concrete marine block installed in the study sites. The coral recruit and algae have developed a symbiotic and mutualistic relationship in 13m and 20m depths. In comparison, they have a parasitic relationship at 6m depth as per observation that there was a massive decrease of corals in shallower waters (6m). At the same time, a massive increase in algae was observed instead. In terms of abiotic factors, the study also found that there have been no significant changes that took place specifically along benthic waters as compared to the surface water. The massive increase of algae can be observed in the shallow waters, and leaving coral mortality can be attributed to the fact that the study sites have high anthropogenic activities, such is also evident across many parts of the globe. High anthropogenic activities have been the cause of the decline of coral recruits and increased chances of coral mortality.

THE RELATIONSHIP OF SLEEP HOURS ON THE ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE AND CLASSROOM PARTICIPATION OF SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS
Authors: GHIAN LOUIE B. GARCIA, AIRUS BENEDICT RECIO, HANNAH GABIRELLE ESCUETA, MARITHE ILAGAN, ZYRA DANICA MORALES, NENALYN TORRES, KEN JOSEPH NOVILLA, MARK KENNETH DACLES
Abstracts: Senior high school students often face a multitude of academic responsibilities that make time management a challenging task, particularly when it comes to compromising their sleep. Sleep deprivation has become increasingly prevalent, with a significant number of students receiving less than the recommended six hours of sleep per day. The consequences of insufficient sleep are numerous, including tiredness, mood disorders, memory loss, a diminished attention span, and physical ailments. Although the recommended sleep duration for students aged 13 to 18 is 8 to 10 hours, the transition to senior high school poses difficulties in balancing academic workloads, resulting in shorter sleeping hours and subsequently lower general weighted averages. To shed light on this issue, a study was conducted at NU-Nazareth School during the academic year 2022-2023. The study employed a descriptive-correlational design, utilizing a multi-stage sampling technique to select the participants. The researchers developed a researcher-made questionnaire as the primary research instrument, which was administered to the 312 senior high school students of NU-Nazareth. The collected data was analysed using Spearman's correlation and JASP statistical software, with all tests conducted at a significance level of 5%. Surprisingly, the findings of the study revealed that, on average, senior high school students slept for only 6 hours per night. However, contrary to expectations, no significant relationship was found between sleep hours and academic performance or classroom participation. These results suggest that while sleep deprivation remains a prevalent issue among senior high school students, it may not directly impact their academic performance or classroom engagement. Further research is needed to explore additional factors that may influence academic outcomes in this student population.

ENHANCING LIBRARY SILENCE: NOISYFIER-SVM WITH MACHINE LEARNING ANALYSIS
Authors: JUDY ANN T. NASULI1, REINALENE F. TONGSON2, HERNAN JOHN RAFAEL M. ABILLA3, JOSHUA YSABEL P. ANTONIO4, AICHELLE C. ALMAZAN5
Abstracts: Noise remains a persistent concern in library environments, affecting both library patrons and facilitators alike. In response to this issue, the present research delved into a study aimed at addressing this isolated challenge. The primary objective of this investigation was to design and develop a novel device employing robotics and Arduino mechanisms to mitigate the negative impact of noise within library premises. The device's capabilities were thoroughly tested at Luis Y. Ferrer Jr. Senior High School, providing crucial insights into its effectiveness. The device's functionalities were calibrated according to meticulous planning and 3D design executed by the researchers. The Noisyfier incorporates a Sound Sensor Module capable of receiving and detecting sound intensity, while an alarm system with a buzzer is triggered when the sound level surpasses a predefined decibel limit. Precision testing was conducted to validate the device's performance, and a strong positive correlation with conventional decibel meters was observed. By utilizing MATLAB's Support Vector Machine (SVM) algorithm with a threshold value of 81.5 to discern the binary association between the 'device' and 'db meter,' the obtained correlation coefficient of 0.90476 and classification accuracy of 0.98556 showcase the device's robust performance in noise detection. The Noisyfier demonstrated remarkable efficacy as a noise monitoring device specifically tailored for library environments, and this claim is substantiated by rigorous statistical data and comprehensive analysis. To facilitate further research endeavors in this area, future researchers are encouraged to explore durable power sources and consider device modifications that enhance its portability and ease of use.
