Abstract: The needs of Indonesia people to have a high-priced property and the acceptance of having a property is one of the best investment in their life is two key factors that lead property sector for growing rapidly. PT. Hasta Raya Utama is one of the developer company that focus on this sector, since it was established in September 2014, PT Hasta Raya Utama has run 6 projects in 5 different locations. The business model of PT Hasta Raya Utama at this time has strength and weakness. The strength from business model is PT Hasta Raya Utama has strong key activities. Whereas the weakness of the current business model is less-notice about customer relationship so that their loyalty may be decreasing because there is no good customer relationship program from the company. As a suggestion to fix the business model, then there is should be an alternative prototype of the business model that is the customer segmentation concept to a good institution both government or private. This concept is focusing on speeding up the processing of a project and making sure the company cash flow. To support this business model prototype then one of the key activities that play the biggest role is welcoming the networking optimally. This prototype is chosen in order to make stream revenue is not affected by the microeconomic condition.

Abstract: In the past, many experts have made studies on how innovative strategies have been used for effective and efficient execution of new product development (NPD) projects in industries. These strategies aim at effectively leveraging the strength of the organization. Leading manufacturers in the automotive industry periodically develop new products in the existing platform to enhance customer satisfaction and develop new platforms to meet future requirements. It is evident that each project in a firm has linkages with the past projects through shared technology and resources. As a result, technology and resource management is very important for a firm to move towards lean project management.

Abstract: The under-treatment of pain is the most disturbing and annoying symptom for hospitalized patients worldwide, yet it is poorly assessed and managed. Pain undermines a person’s quality of life and negatively affects their physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing. Nurses have a vital role in implementing pain management effectively; therefore inadequate knowledge remains a major barrier to achieving effective pain management. This study aims to assess knowledge levels and attitudes regarding pain management among nurses working in hospitals in south of Palestine. A quantitative cross-sectional study design was utilized to recruit a proportionate sample of 380 staff nurses working in different wards in six governmental and private hospitals in Palestine. A modified Arabic version of Nurses’ Knowledge and Attitude Survey questionnaire regarding Pain was used to answer the research questions. The results of the study showed that a mean score of knowledge was 15.5 out of34 (45.6% out of 100%).This finding indicates that staff nurses had deficit in knowledge and negative attitudes toward pain assessment and management. The findings showed no significant difference in the mean score of knowledge in relation with gender (p = 0.181), age-group (p = 0.399), level of education (p = 0.934), and previous training courses or workshops on pain management (p = 0.612), except for the place of work (p <0.001).The results of this study indicate that there are serious challenges to adequate pain management. Curricular evaluation and/or change aiming to promote pain management and correcting the ingrained misconceptions are needed.

Abstract: Injection moulds are divided into two types based on runner design (i.e.) Cold runner moulds and Runner lessmoulds (i.e.) hot runner moulds. In cold runner moulds, for multi-cavity and multi-point injection moulds, there is wastage of material in runner area. Sometimes wastage of material is more than component weight. For avoiding the above problem, the technique used is hot Runner moulds. Hot runner mould is one of the advanced manufacturing methods for multi-cavity type moulds. These types of moulds are commonly used for large production rate. While producing plastic components using normal/standard multi-cavitymould, we are facing theproblems like partial filling, cavities in components, less product quality, injection pressure and temperature drop age and warpage etc... To overcome these problems, hot Runner mould is designed and modeled in PROE 5.0 andtested. Then the thermal analysis is carried out to find out the thermal variations due to the injection pressure of a molten plastic into the cavities of the mold by using Simulation Technology.

Abstract: Antimicrobial proteins (AMPs) are widely distributed in nature. In higher eukaryotes, AMPs provide the host with an important defense mechanism against invading pathogens. AMPs of lower eukaryotes and prokaryotes may support successful competition for nutrients with other microorganisms of the same ecological niche. AMPs show a vast variety in structure, function, antimicrobial spectrum and mechanism of action. Most interestingly, there is growing evidence that AMPs also fulfill important biological functions other than antimicrobial activity.

Abstract: WSNs are spatially distributed autonomous sensors to monitor physical or environmental conditions such as temperature sound pressure etc. They are highly prone to malicious attacks and security threats[12][13] since their structures are not predetermined. Malicious attack on the sense that it makes the sensor nodes to drop the packets of data when moved from one node to another. This will surely degrade the performance of the whole system. Another major issue is to distinguish malicious attack from normal packet loss. Most cases we fail to realize malicious attack from normal packet loss. In order to overcome that problem we adopt a new method using threshold value called Channel Aware Anti Malicious Threshold System(CAMTS).

Abstract: Grievance is very much present in every workplace especially in today’s era of globalization, if not tackled on time a minute grievance can become a conflict. A lack of interest has been found in the organisation to handle the grievance and also to use the grievance handling as a tool to motivate the employees. This empirical research discusses the various motivational theories and various grievance handling styles and at last the relationship between these two factors through the various cases. This empirical research study is based on the objective of finding the relationship between grievances of employees and their motivation. After considering various cases filed in Indian courts, it has been found that there is a relationship found between the grievances and motivation that every manager has to consider before the grievance turns into conflict. If the managers of the public or private organisations do not handle grievances at the initial stage, the consequences can be severe. To motivate the employees, grievance handling can be used as an effective motivational tool. Findings from this study will help manager motivate their employees by handling employees grievances at the earliest. The managers will learn to take care of even a minute grievance of employees.

Abstract: The most common problems encountered in the Indian farmers throughout in agriculture is control of obnoxious, undesirable, unwanted, useless, ugly and often persistent plants, injurious for crops interfere with agricultural operations increases labour and cost of production and finally reduce the crop yields. Such plants are known as weeds. Although there are losses caused by the weeds within field in terms of crop yield, crop weeds competition for space, water, light and nutrients, increases in cost of agriculture production, reduction in price of farm produce, effects livestock product quality, reduction in land value, harbors to pests and diseases, bad effect on human health and soil productivity. However, some weeds have also beneficial effect in agriculture as well as human life.

Abstract: Staphylococcus aureus is a leading cause of nosocomial infections and the etiologic agent of a wide range of diseases associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Some of the diseases mediated by this species include endocarditis, osteomyelitis, toxic shock syndrome, food poisoning, and skin infections. Biofilms are well organized and complex aggregate of microorganisms, surrounded by a protective matrix of exo-polysaccharides and can adhere to each other on various surfaces. Because of increase the drug resistance and the side effect of over use of antibiotic, it is necessary to find a suitable agent to reduce the growth of microorganism. Biofilm are known as a significant problem because biofilm formation protects pathogenic bacteria against antibiotics and is one of the main causes of development of chronic infections. Thus biofilm is the main cause of drug resistance in microbial strains. These strains cause pathogenicity to a maximum extent and thus cause resistance against the conventional antibiotics/drugs. Silver is known as an antimicrobial agent and is utilized in several antimicrobials and medications. Staphylococcus aureus strains were isolated and screened for biofilm production. In the present investigation, the nano-particles were prepared of Ag+. The biosynthesized silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) were characterized by UV-Vis spectroscopy and Transmission electron microscopy (TEM). UV-Vis spectra of silver nano-particles showed absorption spectra at 450 nm corresponding to the surface plasmon resonance of silver nanoparticles. The size and morphology of the fused nanoparticles were determined by TEM, which shows the formation of spherical nanoparticles in the size range of 5-20 nm. The antibacterial activity of biosynthesized AgNPs, were evaluated by measuring the diameter of zone of inhibition against pathogenic microbial strains and drug resistant Staphylococcus aureus.

Abstract: The River Yamuna is the largest tributary of River Ganga. This river is as prominent and sacred as the great River Ganga itself. Deterioration in water quality as a result of discharge of allochthonous and autochthonous sources of pollution into water bodies in increasingly rendering the natural water bodies unsuitable for various beneficial purposes to the mankind, like drinking water source, bathing, navigation, fishing and irrigation. It is observed that, due to over pollution of such sacred rivers, the microbial diversity gets increases which increase the BOD and organic load in the water thus making the water polluted. The study showed that the fungal biodiversity is the result of increasing pollution in river Yamuna and is also variable as per the seasonal and climatic variations.

Abstract: This study used survey data collected by Southern nations, nationalities and peoples’ region (SNNPR) bureau of finance and economic development (BoFED) in collaboration with Arba Minch University for 5,015 urban households. The major purposes of the paper are measuring urban poverty and identifying the determinants via employing logistic regression. Accordingly, for the year 2015 poverty incidence, gap and severity were equal to 18.02%, 5.25% and 2.31% respectively for the urban SNNPR. Urban food poverty measured using the above indexes leaves relatively larger figures. In the last five years the region’s urban poverty reduces remarkably except for food poverty severity which rose by 17.24%. The use of logistic regression to identify the determinants of urban poverty end up with marital status, family size, total dependency, education level, saving habit, and source of energy were found to be statistically significant variables. Hence, pre and post marriage orientations to reduce divorce and input support for windowed, limiting family size and in turn dependency using short and long term solutions, and supplying social and physical infrastructure such as education, financial institutions and power are viable options to reduce urban poverty in the region. The urgency of tackling urban poverty in the region should start from Wolaita and South Omo zones (districts) since both of them are characterized by higher incidence, gap and severity of poverty.

Abstract: Continuity of a subject is looked at in terms of the vertical and horizontal relationship in the curriculum (relationship between and within content and the subject being taught from one level to the next). In Kenyan scenario integrated Social Studies (SST) is only taught in primary schools and in teacher training college. This research study sought to find out how continuity in Social Studies (SST) content can be made appropriate in relation to the changes in the contemporary society. The study also sought to find out the perception of teachers on the trends of continuity in Social Studies content in relation to the number of years one has taught. The findings indicate that the topics in SST becomes complex as learners progress from lower classes to the upper classes, and that SST content offers learners the opportunity to apply what they learnt in school in their daily life. Findings show that there’s significant difference between the perceptions of teachers on Trends of continuity of Social Studies in relation to the length of teaching Social Studies between teachers.

Abstract: The present work is an attempt to analyse various morphological development of Vigna radiata due to the effect of Shiv ganga water of Deoghar, Jharkhand. River ,pond and lake water is use in irrigation for several crop plants growth. The reason is because it contains various important micro and macro-nutrients which are useful for crop development. However the content of nutrients in wastewater completely depends on their origin of source. Moreover such variations in nutrients availability greatly influence the particular crop growth. In the present study we addressed the effect of heavy metal discharge by pilgrims by vermillion deposition which contain many heavy metals, Shiv ganga polluted water on growth of Vigna radiata. Different concentrations of shiv ganga water sample (0% - 100%) were used to examine their effect on development of Vigna radiate morphologies. We found that 60% sample concentration is most suitable for development of different morphologies of Vigna radiata, indeed support the maximum growth. At higher concentrations (80% - 100%) development of crop is significantly compromised suggesting certain constituents in polluted water are present excess than their tolerance limit. Nonetheless, 60% sample concentration contains optimum micro and micro-nutrients as well as other components which are useful for better growth of Vigna radiata.

Abstract: According to investopedia Demonetization means the act of stripping a currency unit of its status as legal tender. There are multiple reasons why nations demonetize their local units of currency. Some reasons include to brush-off inflation, to brush-off corruption, and to dispirit a cash system. The process of demonetization involves either introducing new notes of the same currency or completely replacing the old currency with new currency. Indian government adopted demonetization on 08 November 2016 to tackle with black money and make India a cashless digital economy. As per the yearly report of Reserve Bank of India of 31 March 2016 that total currency notes in circulation is 16.42 lac crore of old Rs. 500 and Rs.1000 banknotes. As per the report of RBI dated on 14-12-2016, the total amount of old notes of value of Rs. 12.44 lac crore has been deposited by the customers till 10-12-2016. Banks started accepting deposits from 10 November but within a period of 15 days approximately half money has been received by the banks.

Abstract: War is at the core of the efforts to submit the use of military force in international relations to legal rules. For millennia the decision to wage war was not subject to any legal restrictions. Furthermore, war was regarded as a legitimate means of policy, its foremost aim changing territorial boundaries. In the early years of the twentieth century, nearly all states agreed on a ban on the use of force with the explicit exception of self- defense, thus legally accepting only peaceful changes to the status quo. Situations may occur in which the use of force might be believed to be legitimate by moral standards although illegal. Thus, bound between the dichotomy of security and justice, the requirements of legality and legitimacy might not always coincide in international law.

Abstract: Dire Dawa is a disputed city over claims of ownership between Oromia and Somalia regional states.Hence, among the Oromo and Somali ethnic groups. However, there was no conflict so far experienced between these ethnic groups in the city of Dire Dawa. The article attempted to study the basic reasons for such peaceful state of affairs in the city. To accomplish this objective, the researcher utilized qualitative research method. Sources of data- primary and secondary sources were used. Primary data as the main source was collected from informants and documents through interviews, observation, focus group discussion, and document analysis. The collected data was analyzed to find common indicators. The study finding revealed that these ethnic groups have developed a sense of belonging to the city of Dire Dawa. They developed a single vocabulary-ye-Dire-lij-. This single vocabulary was the result of cultural dialogue and understanding they developed over century through their interactions. Their interaction was their common cultural heritage which they mobilized to solve their competition over city ownership that avoided outright conflict. This was shown when the two ethnic groups agreed to share the terms of the city Council. This is a lesson that needs to be promoted and shared by others to avoid violent ethnic conflict over claim. It concluded that cultural diversity and intercultural dialogue is one of the surest guarantees of development and peace. The lesson from Dire Dawa provide values needed for economic development: values that are tolerant, trusting, and participatory.

Abstract: Capital investment decisions play vital role for the achievement of strategic plan of organizations. The main objective of this study is to investigate the capital budgeting practice of business organizations in Ethiopia with especial reference to strategic planning, project idea generation and cash forecasting. To achieve this objective, primary data was collected using self administered questionnaire from 109 large private and public owned business organizations found in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The finding of the study showed that the majority of the firms try to link capital investment projects to their strategic plan. Top managers and board of directors are the main sources of project idea and most organizations do not make cash forecasting properly. For instance, they will not incorporate working capital, inflation and tax effect of depreciation in to account while forecasting cash flows.

Abstract: Optimal enzyme activity occurs within a limited set of conditions such as temperature and pH which must thus be carefully controlled to promote high reaction rates. Therefore, watermelon peel was collected, processed, pretreated and subjected to hydrolysis in a series of batch reactors. Trichoderma reseei was isolated from decayed wood and the enzymes released by Trichoderma reseei were used for the hydrolysis for glucose production from watermelon dry peel. The effects of temperature at selected temperatures of 20 oC, 25 oC, 30 oC, 35 oC, 40 oC and 45 oC; as well as effects of pH on enzyme activity at selected pH ranges of 3.0 to 5.5 were studied. From the study, the results obtained within the limit of the experimental conditions show an optimal temperature of 30 oC, having a corresponding glucose concentration of 0.091728 g/l, optimal pH of 4.5 with a corresponding glucose concentration 0.6436 g/l, which implies that the enzymes from T. reseeigives high yield of glucose when controlled at these conditions. Also, the watermelon dry sample used in the study was highly deliginified, leading to high glucose yield.

Abstract: Practice of dowry poses heavy threat to the life of females. Dowry is an age old practice in Indian society referring to property or valuable security given by one party to another as a consideration for marriage. The origin of dowry primarily was the contribution of wife’s family or by herself with the intention to help the husband.This custom of dowry was started in the medieval period. Women were gifted with wealth and jewel from their parents during her marriage and this served as a tool of financial independence for the bride even after marriage. This menace is the root cause of almost all violence against a married woman. In most cases after marriage the problem of dowry will arise. If the wife is not able to provide all, which her husband and in laws demand, her life in the groom’s house become miserable. She will be treated cruelly and in some cases she may lose her life.

Abstract: Floods are the most recurring hazard in Kosi and Gandak river basin of North Bihar in eastern India. Despite a long history of flood control measures in the state for more than six decades, the rivers still continues to cause a huge disaster and a lot of misery in the region due to extensive flooding. The Kosi and Gandak River typically shows very high discharge variability in addition to high sediment flux from upper part of catchment. This often results to inundation followed by flooding in the low-lying tracts of the alluvial plains. This paper re-visits the flooding issue in Kosi and Gandak river basin and presents an in-depth analysis of flood management.This flood risk analysis follows multiple criteria decision analysis (MCDA) using Concept of Choosing by Advantage (CBA) for selecting component of Integrated Flood Risk Management (IFRM) by stakeholder and decision makers.

Abstract: Cryogenic engineering is concerned with low temperatures and the equipment used in producing, storing and using of fluids at low temperatures. Due to the increasing use of cryogenic-fluids in industrial applications, the storage and transport of cryogenic fluids has become a necessity. Because of low temperatures, the storage of cryogenic fluids is difficult. Cryogenic fluids must be maintained at low temperatures and high pressures, otherwise the change of phase may occur, and storage of cryogenic fluids is possible with insulated chambers, using fiber, foamed or powdered insulation.In the present work, design analysis of multi layered cryogenic shell, with optimum orientations; minimum mass under strength constraints for a cylinder subjected to axial loading for static analysis on the pressure vessel has been studied. The modeling is carried out in Creo Parametric 2.0 and the analysis is carried out in ANSYS 15.0 solver. Static analysis and Thermal analysis has been done and also material optimization is done for enhancement. Different materials are analyzed. Taking weight into consideration and stress into account, S- glass epoxy for the outer structure with aluminum for the inner structure is comparably better than the other materials.

Abstract: The existing vapour absorption system is compared with the vapour compression system designed with the detailed ASHRAE standard CLTD method along with software like e-solution. The pros and cons of the vapour compression system and vapour absorption system is compared in technical and financial reference. The research paper is based on the resort located in the hilly region projecting circumstances of modern rated star luxury facility. For calculated load of 60 TR, fuel consumption of boiler at different loading conditions is determined. Then actual and theoretical fuel consumptions are compared. For the analysis, existing VAS is replaced by the Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) system. Complete design of VRF system is performed separating the building in three zones: (a) upper two floor, (b) ground floor and (c) lobby. Energy consumption of VRF system is also calculated and compared with VAS. The research displays that load performance of VAS is poor and resort using VAS are losing large amount of fuel and associated financial resource at part load condition. When comparing VAS with VRF system, it is also found that large amount of money will be saved by replacement of VAS by VRF system with less payback period.

Abstract: In Tanzania there are laid down land dispute settlement machineries which at all falls have legal backup. The rationale behind their establishment is to the effect that anyone who claims an interest over land has to knock the doors of the judicial holy temples for the redress. There is no dispute that land disputes at a village level are in existence despite having these machineries. However, this paper focuses on whether inaccessibility to these land dispute settlement machineries may be one of the sources for accelerated land disputes in Morogoro Region.

Abstract: With the increasing mobility of people and goods, the time will come when they demand transportation services with higher level of safety, security, speed, smoothness and comfort. If a transportation company or a certain form of transportation always provides services with quality that satisfies the users, the consumers will become loyal customers. Good quality of the services will increase a company's image in the customers' eyes. Ferry ports are vital when it comes to distribution of goods or people from one place to another. Because ferry ports are places where people shift, port areas are strategic places to extend businesses. Economic development needs transportation services that are adequate and sufficient. Without transportation as the supporting tools, we cannot expect good results in terms of the economic development of a nation. A strategy is a activity plan to reach the goals. A strategy as an activity that is incremental and, in the implementation, refers to the customers' expectations in the future. A strategy is a vital tool in terms of creating competitive strengths. A strategy is a plan that is designed to reach targets and goals. Planning is an organization's anticipation, what needs to be done in order to reach the goals. The purposes of this research are (1) To identify the segmentation of the passengers of Merak Ferry Port, (2) To analyze the passengers' level of satisfaction regarding the various services business of Merak Ferry Port and (3) To analyze and formulate the proper various services business strategy to be implemented. The research method that is used is descriptive tabulation which is a statistic analysis process that includes attempts to investigate and reveal information that is relevant that the data contains.

Abstract: Education is an essential requirement and it must be fulfilled for every individual. The requirement has been declared as the basic human rights along with the food and shelter by the United Nation Organization as well. Apart from that, the education reflects the personality of a person, so as the grades as well. The grades mirror the person’s behavior and its attitude towards its academics irrespective of whatever educational background the person possesses. People say that girls are always smarter than boys. Therefore, in this research paper I'm going to prove that female students do tend to get higher grades than male students do. Female students tend to care more about studies and they work harder than male students do. Boys are more interested in technology than girls since they are always on the computers exploring and video gaming and they rely on technology more than girls do. There definitely are solutions that could make both genders on the same academic level such as including more technology in studying and including more practical work in academics.

Abstract: Inulinase consist of an important class of enzymes for the production of fructose and fructo-oligosaccharides, which are extensively used in pharmaceutical, food industry and beverages. Inulinase have also found their application for inulin substrates hydrolysis for single-cell oil and single-cell protein production. The isolated fungus was identified as Aspergillus niger. It has been isolated from numerous habitats. This enzyme is found in many plants species and is widely distributed in fungi, yeast and bacterial strains. In the present study; rhizosphere soil samples were collected and inoculated for the isolation of fungal species present in soil. A local fungal isolate identified as Aspergillus niger was tested for the optimization of inulinase production in solid state fermentation and submerged fermentation for various parameters such as pH, temperature, incubation time, carbon and nitrogen sources. Five different substrates wheat bran, banana peel, orange peel, sugarcane bagasse, garlic peel were used. Among five banana peel substrate resulted in maximum production of inulinase for incubation time in days. The inulinase production using banana peel as substrate was higher in submerged fermentation (61 U/ml) than solid state fermentation (52 U/ml). The optimum pH and temperature was found to be 5.4 and 37°C respectively. In submerged fermentation inulinase showed higher activity when inulin (72 U/ml) with respect to sucrose (67 U/ml) was used as carbon sources. Yeast extract showed higher activity in submerged fermentation (66 U/ml) was used as nitrogen sources.

Abstract: High Power battery packs are a series/parallel connection of single energy storage cells.The series connection of cells affects in the whole battery pack energy and power due to the unbalancing behavior of each different cell. To improve the whole battery pack energy a balancing system is connected. Passive balancing systems are wasteful and do not increase the Battery pack energy during discharge. Active balancing systems are efficient but most topologies add big complexity to the BMS work. Single switch active balancing systems are simple and reliable. During this work the main balancing current modelling and efficiency equations are presented for the most important single switch active balancing systems. These expressions permit to evaluate the balancing power of the system, and to know how much energy is balanced during the balancing system process between the Weak cell and the Strong cells. Experimental validation of each balancing system is implemented to compare balancing power, efficiency and behavior.

Abstract: Series connection of energy storage cells implies the need of a BMS and a balancing system to control and improve the performance of the battery pack. Nowadays passive balancing is the most used balancing system in industrial applications, basically due to its simplicity and low price. Active balancing systems are mostly reserved to research articles and experimental prototypes. During this research article, single switch active balancing systems will be presented as a real option of passive balancing substitution. For that purpose during the article most important characteristics of balancing systems will be presented regarding to the impact on the final battery performance, behavior and price. After detecting most important comparison characteristicsa single switch active balancing systems will be compared with a passive balancing system prototypes under different working situations.
