Abstract: Ammonia (NH3) emissions from livestock sector are one of the large contributors of greenhouse gas. The objective of this research is to determine ammonia emissions at three broiler farmings in Palangka Raya, Central Kalimantan, emissions measurement was conducted at the top and bottom of the poultry house using NH3 sensor conducted in the morning, afternoon and evening. In addition, the measurement is also conducted to the climatic factor, i.e. air temperature, humidity and wind speed. An analysis of the sample of chicken manure is also conducted to determine N and crude protein contained in chicken manure and ration used by poultry farmers during the study. The result of this study reveals that a number of ammonia emissions of the three farming measured on the top of the poultry house is 20,55 ppm, 14,61 ppm and 15,85 ppm, while at the bottom is 18,81 ppm, 15,50 pm and 14,91 ppm. A lot of ammonium emissions of those three farming are influenced by the lack of waste management, crude protein in the ration is not well-digestible so the content of N in the chicken manure is still high and the factor of climatology and humidity surrounding.

Abstract: Technology expansion has numerously contributed to marketing. The researchers built “ShopPal” to provide hassle-free shopping experiences to users. This is a mobile application displaying advertisements of individual shopping areas, not shopping malls. It also consists of billboards in shops that would display promotions in the shopping place based on age category of majority present in the area at a given time. A stored procedure was used to find preferences of given age categories. It is used to provide suggestions when consumers select product choices, when registering. Customized offers based on location, tracked using Global Positioning System (GPS), are sent to users. Customer connects to billboard via Bluetooth. Clustering is used to identify age category of majority of gathered customers and promotions are displayed accordingly. The system would be greatly beneficial to consumers and shop owners. “ShopPal” is an ideal location-based offer advertising system that gives consumers a hassle-free shopping experience.

Abstract: Artemia were reared, under zero water exchange, on four different microalgae feeding regimes: standard ad libitum feeding (SF1), half of SF1 (SF1/2), one third of SF1 (SF1/3), and a quarter of SF1 (SF1/4). In additional treatments, for each of these feeding regimes nitrogen waste from Artemia in the cultures was converted into bacterial biomass by addition of carbohydrate to produce carbon/nitrogen (C/N) ratio 10. The objective was to investigate what the contribution of bacteria to the Artemia diet was at different degressive algae feeding rations. After 15 days of culture period, the results of survival and biomass production (WW g/L) indicated that stimulating bacterial growth increased survival and biomass production of Artemia in all feeding rations when compared to the corresponding control treatments with algae only. Particularly, manipulating the C/N ratio in the SF1/3 treatment induced the improvement of Artemia biomass production equal to that obtained in the treatment where Artemia were offered solely algae at SF1 ration. Moreover, the results of fatty acid assimilation and especially 15N accumulation in Artemia indicated that Artemia utilized relatively more bacteria for the treatments with the lowest algae supply. These findings open perspectives for using bacteria to substitute or supplement microalgae in Artemia biomass production.

Abstract: The rapid increase in population in Nigeria has brought the need for a massive increase in agricultural produce to cater for the population. In view of this, traditional farming only during the annual rainy season cannot suffice to cultivate enough farm produce for the nation. Therefore, irrigation farming that allows farmers to plant crops throughout the year is now embraced across the country. However, lack of knowledge about the crops that can grow best in a particular land and the exact amount of water and fertilizer needed in the farm is leading to poor output. This study proposes intelligent irrigation software system to improve irrigation farming in Nigeria by acquiring and sharing information about crops requirements (soil, quantity of water and fertilizer) with farmers. With the use of Global Positioning System (GPS) and expert agricultural information, data is capture by the software, analyzed and shared with the selected farmers. The final output is generated and sends to the Farmer via Short Message Service (SMS) describing the accurate farmland size, suitable crops to plant, as well as the agrochemicals needed in the farmland.

Abstract: Globally, agriculture takes center stage as the engine that can transform nations’ economies. Smallholder farmers, who produce the majority of agricultural products, face various challenges, including access to adequate information, services, and key value chains. ICT is believed to play a pivotal role in disseminating information and linking farmers with clients in the agricultural value chain. The latest information and training tool, which many famers already carry in their pockets, is the mobile phone. Information plays a vital role in agricultural development and production and their effective communication will help facilitate mutual understanding among farmers, agricultural scientist and extension workers. Increasing production is a major challenge facing present agriculture. Smallholder farmers which dominate the landscape of developing world need to improve farming through acquiring adequate knowledge and information. The objective of seminar is to review the potential of mobile phone usage by farmers for dissemination of agricultural information in Ethiopia. Main factors that influence the use of mobile phone as: high cost of available technologies, inadequate infrastructure and low ICT skills, poor and expensive connectivity, inappropriate ICT policies, language barriers, low bandwidth, inadequate and/or inappropriate credit facilities and systems. The ministry agriculture when designing strategies for effective and efficient use of mobile phone for disseminating agricultural information, they have to consider those identified factors of mobile phone usage.

Abstract: Chili, a potential cash crop in the world is considered as one of the most important spices due to its multiple uses and vital role in most of the cuisines. Traditional drying systems use direct sunlight or indirect heating sources and hence difficult to control the drying conditions. Convective drying systems use hot air and because of high temperature, volatile compounds tend to remove from the product leading to a quality reduction. Use of dehumidified air for drying has been suggested as one of the solutions as drying can be done at relatively lower temperatures while preserving the volatile compounds. In this study, a heat pump drying (HPD) system was designed, evaluated and then validated to be used as an alternate method of drying chili in the industry level. Weight and the bulk density of the evaluated sample were 8,000 kg and 98 kg/m3 respectively. The Specific Moisture Removal Rate (SMER) value of the evaluated HPD system was 1.027 kg/kWh. The moisture content of chili was reduced from 10.8% to 5.05% (wet basis) within three hours. The relative humidity of the dehumidified room was reduced to 8% from 55% and the temperature of the dehumidified room increased from 29°C to 41°C within three hours. Average water condensed rate was 5.2kg/h. Results suggested that the developed heat pump drying system has performed well serving its purpose and hence it can be concluded that the established closed cycle heat pump drying system can be effectively used to dry chili in industrial level.

Abstract: Mobile applications and services make things simpler fulfilling people daily needs. There is a lack of applications, which can be really useful for the professionals to improve their working capabilities. Though mobile phones are used by people living in rural areas, but there are hardly any relevant applications for them to improve their productivity. In this paper research team proposed one such mobile application “Smart Cultivation Partner”, which can be operated on their mobile phones. In Sri Lanka Farmers Faced many problems because they do not know such technical and technology skills. They cannot find the actual merchants, they do not know the actual prices, they do not know the suitable market for their sales, and also they cannot predicate the price of their cultivated products.

Abstract: This research study investigated the impact of rule of law and other macro-economic variables on the performance of the stock markets. The independent variables for the study are rule of law, real interest rate, consumer price index inflation, gross capital formation, gdp per capita and trade. In the study, some of the advanced and emerging countries are selected. The data is examined annually from 2005 to 2015 in panel form. The measuring variable for the study which correlates the performance of stock markets with the economy is stock market return. To estimate the relationship Pearson correlation, regression analysis and descriptive statistics tests have been used. Regression analysis is performed in two models, one with rule of law and one without it. The results indicated that there is a significant relationship between real interest rate and the stock market return and a significant relationship between the stock market return and the inflation rate is also observed, this shows that whenever there is an increase in inflation and interest rates of an economy that will inevitably lead to the increase in the stock market performance of that economy. Rule of law makes an expressive impact on the research, a significance between rule of law and stock market return is seen which means that whenever the law and order is implemented the stock market performance tends to be increased. On the other hand, GDP, gross capital formation and trade shows insignificance with the stock market return. Most of the results are supporting the theories and literature.

Abstract: Biosurfactants are surface-active substances produced by microorganisms. They are amphiphiles and consist of a polar (hydrophilic) and non polar (hydrophobic) group. Due to their amphiphilic structure biosurfactants tend to increase the surface area of hydrophobic water-insoluble substances and this makes surfactant an excellent emulsifier, foaming and dispersing agents. They are environmental friendly, biodegradable, less toxic and non-hazardous. Because of their potential advantages, biosurfactants are widely used in many pharmaceutical and industrial applications.

Abstract: Renewable energy could replace the conventional sources of energy such as fossil fuel and oil, serving as an alternative source of energy. Non-renewable energy sources have been found to pose various environmental problems such as greenhouse gas emissions as they tend to deplete at faster rates. Biological processes such as fermentation and anaerobic digestion for the past decades have given rise to the production of biofuels such as biogas and bioethanol. Biogas production is environmentally friendly and simple to produce although some drawbacks have limited its full exploitation in the past decades such as the physical and chemical treatment techniques required in the process.

Abstract: This paper deals with the strengthening of deteriorated reinforced concrete building by externally bonded carbon fiber composites. Four storied reinforced concrete residential building is selected for case study. It was constructed in 1992 and various deterioration symptoms are found. Static and dynamic analyses are performed by E-Tabs software using the various strength of members obtained from rebound hammer technique. The overstressed members are strengthened by externally bonded carbon fiber sheet. Experimental work for compression test on concrete cylinders externally bonded by carbon fiber sheets is performed. Compressive strength increment depends on the number of composite layers and percentage of wrap on concrete specimens. The required areas and thickness of carbon fiber wrapped sheet for the members are calculated by using Sika Carbodur FRP analysis software. For flexural strengthening, the maximum area required is 92 mm2, for shear strengthening and confinement the maximum thickness of FRP required are 0.35 mm and 0.18 mm respectively.

Abstract: Since polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHAs) can be obtained by utilizing organic waste as a substrate, they form one of the most suitable classes of organic acids with many applications, ranging from medical supplies to energy and biorefinery products. In total, PHAs are found in at least in 150 different molecular forms, with the basic differences determined by the length of the carbon skeleton (4 to 14 C-bonds) and the radicals, which are formed by many organic groups. These characteristics make up their unique physicochemical properties, biodegradability and nontoxicity. Many new approaches are now being developed to obtain PHAs and modify these molecules into new green chemicals as well as renewable alternatives for petroleum and other non-sustainable compounds. This mini review gives insight into the genetic characteristics of PHA synthases, the most important enzyme group related to this compound. This review addresses chemical techniques to modify PHAs to obtain compounds with a high market value. Therefore, this work shows new applications and possibilities for PHA, such as drug-delivery systems, building block chemicals, new polymeric structures for tissue scaffolds and certain energetic compounds, such as n-butanol..

Abstract: Automated and having self-thinking sense of the machines are now become the focus point to the engineers as well as to the computer scientists. AI has the core development procedure for the automated machines which just not only thinks like a human being but can do the task more accurately through environment retrieving methods. The system is developed for the ease that the robot cleaner will sense to the dust by the sensor used e.g. sonar so that I’ll clean the dusty area, during the cleaning process if the battery of the machine gets down then it will go to its charging station by itself and let it be charged after the charging process I’ll get to work again so that in this way machine can work all the time. Data will be collected and stored to the system whether of the most dusty areas of the house and as well as about the low areas so that in next wave the machine will go and check the most dusty area first and then to the other areas. AIDL(Artificial Intelligence Description Language) is used for this problem solving technique, moreover the system based on AI and therefor as the system learn more from the environment the more the system will be able to improve its abilities to do the proposed work.

Abstract: Indonesian construction industry currently does not have a regulation concerning the applicable contract standard. But in practice, some of construction contracts used either refers to presidential decree (Perpres No 54/2010) and its amendmnets on procurement of government goods/services or international contract standards such as FIDIC, JCT etc. Case study in this research was conducted at an oil and gas company called PT X. It is one of the joint venture company whose majority shares are owned by one of the biggest Indonesian state-owned entreprises. PT X uses technical guidelines called Juknis as guidance in the procurement contract of good/services in which some of regulations used as reference are FIDIC and Perpres No 54/2010. Once construction contract is created and signed by employer and contractor, the important thing that must be conducted by both parties is to carry out contract administration. Some cases occurred in PT X were due to undisciplined of contract administration implementation, even though the construction contract had been well prepared. In the past ten years, the company has been experiencing dispute with several contractors which requires assistances of either court or dispute adjudication board. Besides such disputes result in substantial material losses to the company.

Abstract: Regulations in Indonesia requires foreign companies to have local partner in a joint operation if they want to enter Indonesia contruction industries. This study will examine company ”X”, who frequently get join operation project offers from foreign companies. Within that joint operation, beside many advantages, there are also some risks to manage. Risks in a joint operation project will be more complex than projects in general, because it involve two or more companies with different culture. The purpose of this study is to indentify important risk factors in joint operations project by company ”X”. The instruments of this study consist of primary data (interview and questionaire) and secondary data (books and journals of relevant studies). The datas gathered then analyzed using risk analysis method with Risk Significance and Relative Importance Index as to obtain the risk variables with significant influence on these three porjects in this study. Based on the study, it is found that the important risk variables in a joint operation projects with foreign companies by company ”X” are distrust between employees of each company (X9) and language limitations (X30). Therefore, it is recommended to set a minimum standard of language skills (especially English) for the staff who will assigned in the joint operation project with foreign company also to provide language skills training and it is recommended that the directors from each parent’s company could ensure staff commitment, coordination, and trust by enhancing communication quality and a conflict resolution technique. Carefully selecting a staff for joint operation proyek and employing unbiased and experienced staff are effective measures to remove the distrust within the staff

Abstract: Nutritional status or nutritional health status refers to the state of health of an individual as it is affected by the intake and utilization of nutrients. The main purpose of this nutritional assessment was to find out the facts about nutrition and health status of Nyishi adults of Papumpare district of Arunachal Pradesh, India. The various parameters that were selected to assess nutritional health were socio-economic status, dietary habit and anthropometric parameters which were implemented with the help of food and health frequency questionnaire and other anthropometric tools. The study also showed that education, occupation as well as family pattern directly affects the food budgeting of the people that ultimately shades impact on health. The anthropometric measurement was done among 100 adults of both sex of the rural and urban area and BMI were calculated. Results showed prevalence of 14% chronic energy deficiency in rural adults whereas it was only 4% in urban. Likewise, 60% people were found to be as normal in rural against 52% in the urban. On the other hand, 14% rural adult found to be normal (optimal) and 26% adult found to be in prehypertension (normal) against 8% urban adult found to be normal (optimal) and 24% adult found to be in prehypertension (normal) condition. So, it may be concluded that the results of the epidemiological study with basic comparison of socio-economic, dietary and anthropometric parameters of the adult of same tribe of different conditions with a hope to have further exploration of this topic using other parameters and different age group.

Abstract: Television content is engineered primarily for these roles in society; information, agenda setting, entertainment and education among others. While people consume this content there are other effects that are reached consciously or otherwise. These effects are studied under theories and scholarly debates popularly known as media effects. Most media effects theorists point out that these effects will mostly affect children negatively as they do not have a well developed capacity to guard against harmful content. It is for this reason that media policies are put in place; to safeguard or protect children against any harmful content on television.

Abstract: As a growing metropolitan city, Jakarta has to provide for the growing needs of its inhabitants for facilities and city infrastructures. Facing the fact that land for new constructions is limited, the construction of high-rise buildings becomes one of the most possible alternatives. However, the construction of high-rise buildings is more complicated compared to low-rise buildings in general. Considering the complexities and the impact of the construction to its environment, most high-rise building owners prefer to utilize the service of a construction management consultant to ensure the performance of the construction project, as measured in time, cost, or design specification.

Abstract: This study aims to analyze the influences of three factors: (1) interest rate of KUR Micro loan, (2) interest rate of Non KUR loan and (3) proportional migration of outstanding and borrower bank XYZ, on migration of non KUR loan. Analytical method used is multiple linear regression. The results of the study showed that all the three independent variables have significant negative effect on migration both of outstanding and borrower. The effect of Non KUR loan interest rate on migration differ from the hypothesis. This can be explained because of the difference in the maximum amount of loan that can be borrowed. Non KUR loan product is a credit granting service with the amount of loan up to 200 million, whereby the KUR Micro loan plafond is only up to 25 million. Therefore, it is expected that if there is an increase in interest rate of Non KUR loan will not cause migration.
