Abstract: Apartment construction projects require certain processes and steps because it is a construction job that carries high risks. It is known that apartment construction work is work that has a high risk, this will increase the risks that exist if apartment construction work occurs in a superblock area due to interactions between one construction project and another construction project. The high risk and uncertainty in apartment construction projects in superblock areas can be one of the causes of project time deviations. One control strategy to minimize the occurrence of time deviations is to detect risks that may occur and review every procedure related to the apartment construction process in the companys superblock area, then categorize high risks so that it can become a reference for each party in controlling apartment construction in the superblock area.

Abstract: Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs) are the most important agents of illness and death worldwide. In LMICs, NCDs will be the main agent of mortality projected to cause up to 75% of all deaths by the year 2030. Patients with NCDs go through lengthy and costly treatment regiments that consume a substantial portion of households’ resources subsequently acting as a major barrier to access and utilization of available care. Kenya adopted the 2030 agenda for Sustainable Development Goals and committed to achieve SDG target 3.8 on Universal Health Coverage, so as to enhance access to services and deal with financial burden of illness.

Abstract: The human faces are dynamic multidimensional sys- tems that require good recognition processing techniques. Over the past few decades, the interest in automated face recognition has been growing rapidly, including its theories and algorithms. Public security, criminal identification, identity verification for physical and logical access, and intelligent autonomous vehicles are a few examples of concrete applications of automated face recognition that are gaining popularity among industries. Re-search in face recognition started in the 1960s. Since then, various techniques have been developed and deployed, including local, holistic, and hybrid approaches, which recognize faces using only a few face image features or whole facial features. Yet, robust and efficient face recognition still provides challenges for computer vision and pattern recognition researchers. In this paper, the researchers offered an overview of face recognition, the different used techniques in previous literature and their applications.

Abstract: Background: Husbands involvement in seeking timely antenatal care is important. Their support can have a positive impact on health care of pregnant women, which successively depends on their knowledge and attitude regarding the importance of antenatal care. Use of antenatal health services is a good approach to scale back the chance of maternal morbidity and mortality especially in places where the overall health status of women is poor. By increasing the use of antenatal care (ANC) the risk of maternal death can be reduced.

Abstract: The weather systems that predominantly affect the north-eastern parts of India during the pre-monsoon summer months (March-May) are severe thunderstorms, locally named as ‘Kalbaishakhi’ or ‘Nor’westers’. The storms are devastating in nature particularly due to strong (gusty) winds, heavy rains and hails associated with it. Although these storms are well known for its power of causing damages, studies on them are relatively few due to their small size and sparse network of observations over the region.

Abstract: Sixteen rice varieties were collected from Banke, Bardiya, Kailali and Kapilvastu districts to select the superior varieties for upland rain-fed condition. These varieties were tested in RCBD with three replications in the years 2018 and 2019. The parameters compared were heading and maturity days from sowing, plant height, and number of tillers per square meter, grain and straw yield per hectare. Varieties were significantly different for all the traits studied.

Abstract: A 32-year-old woman underwent her third cesarean section one week earlier. Following an initial assessment, the patient revealed a history of PDPH following the previous cesarean surgery under spinal anesthesia. Most obstetric procedures were performed under spinal anesthesia. However, due to the history of PDPH and the potential risk of aspiration in pregnant women, the anesthetic plan was changed to general anesthesia with rapid sequence induction. The patient underwent a one-hour emergency cesarean section under general anesthesia with uncomplicated tracheal intubation. The anesthesiologist decided to convert the anesthetic plan after carefully examining the severity and history of post-spinal headaches. Awareness of the history of complications associated with the anesthetic strategy helped to prevent unnecessary distress and problems for the patient and the clinicians.

Abstract: Elderly patients have altered physiology in systems such as the cardiovascular, respiratory, renal, digestive, and metabolic systems, which influences the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of anesthetic drugs used during surgery. The free percentage of anesthetic drugs available is also affected by variations in plasma protein concentrations in geriatric individuals. The death rate among older individuals rises after surgery due to various comorbidities which additionally impact the effect of anaesthetic drugs. Pre- or post-operation, the clinically significant parameters such as vital sign monitoring in geriatric patients, positioning, induction and maintenance doses of the anesthetic agent, and anesthesia type must be chosen carefully to optimize the perioperative care practices and better outcomes. The purpose of this narrative review is to provide current information on the effects of anesthetic agents on older patients, as well as to optimize perioperative care practices.

Abstract: The aim of research was to investigate and reveal the construction mechanism of a component based nonlinear S-box. The nonlinear S-box is a vectorial Boolean function. A vectorial Boolean function used in S-box as straight, compressible and expandable. The application of S-boxes is noticeable in modern block ciphers. In this article, the construction of a nonlinear S-box based on Vectorial Boolean function is presented for scientific readers. Actually, the Substitution box is a Boolean-space where substitution takes place through an action of s-box (mathematical function) and provides confusion in block cipher. The computational and exploratory research approach were applied in this research. Reviewing a number of current s-box construction techniques and applying ideas mathematically to construct a new S-box was a primary initiative to conduct this research. Critical thinking was the main key to capture the mathematical notion behind the Nonlinear S-box. The data collection procedure was literature review, online survey questionnaire and focus group discussion. The population of the research work were doctoral students and professors.

Abstract: The aim of this research is to determine how factors related to service quality influence the level of customer satisfaction in the Batam City banking sector. In today era of ruthless globalization, improving service quality is critical to attracting new customers and retaining old ones. In this research, customer satisfaction is the dependent variable, while the independent factors are price, trust, loyalty, service quality and product quality. Customer experience is also used as a mediating factor. This research involved 304 people selected at convenience using online Google Forms. Data analysis was carried out using the SmartPLS 3.0 and SPSS 25.0 programs. According to the results of statistical studies, service quality significantly influences customer satisfaction. However, research also shows that theories about customer experience and loyalty are unlikely to be accepted given the existing evidence. These results show more clearly how important service quality is for the Batam City banking industry to make customers satisfied.
