      Hoang Huong Ly

Abstract: The old-fashioned, teacher-centered language classrooms have long been dominated in most EFL teaching contexts. Materials are based on imaginary characters, reading and listening texts revolve around pre-selected topics which may have little interest or even demotivate learners. It is time for us to choose an appropriate approach through which we can motivate, inspire learners by letting them do whatever they want to do instead of what they are told to do. Project-based learning might be the solution.

Abstract: Globally, 535 000 children died of measles in 2000. By 2010, there was a global push to improve vaccine coverage which resulted in a 74% reduction in deaths. These efforts contributed to 23% of the overall decline in under-five deaths between 1990 and 2008. However, in several countries in African, measles is still a major public health problem. Rubella remains a threat to pregnant women and their fetus, with more than 100 000 children born each year with congenital rubella syndrome (CRS). (World Health Organization 2012).Kenya in May 2016, introduced Measles-Rubella (MR) combined vaccine in its nationwide supplementary immunization activities (SIA) campaign. However, since its introduction, the coverage has been very low especially in urban areas.(SAGE,2016.

Abstract: Pressure injury (PI) is such a common complications that impair quality of life and become the source of sufferings for the patients and care-givers in spinal cord injury (SCI) patients. Management of PI in SCI population is also expensive specially in developing nations. Autologous Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF) is simpler, cost-effective, safe new approach towards pressure injury managements. As second-generation Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), PRF contains more growth factors than PRP. There are no studies on PRF membrane use in PI management in SCI population. Following PRF use there was improved granulation tissue formation in this patient. Here for the first time PRF membrane use in PI management in SCI population has been reported in this case.

Abstract: A cycle which is operated by hand and stores power in spiral spring and uses it to drive and gives more rest to driver. This cycle is operated by hand so that it can also used by physically handicap people. This cycle is inspired from rowing cycle and we have modified the mechanism in rowing cycle. We have utilize the spiral spring to store the potential energy and use it whenever required and when spiral spring drives the cycle the driver can take rest. For workout this is best cycle. Rowing motion is better option for workout so, that for sportsperson this cycle is best for workout. We have also used a particular spring for we can get high speed rather than regular and geared cycles. This cycle has highest speed then other cycles. By regular effort we can travel more distance by use of spiral spring. It is more efficient. By use of spiral spring in rowing cycle for replacing constant effort in regular cycle and use the power of spring and gives the rest while driving the cycle. We can drive this cycle in any road condition.

Abstract: Vernonia hymenolepis species is a weed that is found in various parts of Africa and has traditionally been used as a vegetable because of its nutritional and medicinal value. The species complex in the genus Vernonia Schreber in Tropical East Africa were collected from Mt. Elgon (K3), Kakamega (K5) & Narok (K6) in Kenya and investigated to establish their proximate and micronutrient composition using traditional methods. Results revealed a high quality and quantity of nutritional elements. The leaves had a vitamin C content of up to 1.6g/100g and a mean content of 303.2mg, 242.3mg, 19.6g, 1.2g, 430.8mg and 133.8mg per 100g dry weight (d.w) of Na, K, Cu, Fe, Mn and Zn respectively. Protein levels in the leaves ranged from 11.2-18.1g/100g d.w whereas P and N were found to be 190-390 mg/100g d.w and 21.1-57.9g/100g d.w respectively. Both proximate and elemental significant differences were shown in species from K3 & K5 at P<0.05, except in moisture, N, proteins and Vit C. It is evident from othe nutritional analysis that Vernonia hymenolepis species are highly packed with essential nutrients for good nutrition and can therefore contribute to dietary diversity to help curb malnutrition in the different regions where they grow and thus the need to domesticate them.

Abstract: There are vast application ideas in Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) but their prime disadvantage is that the energy of nodes are limited and energy cannot be supplied. Most traditional routing protocols encounter complications in WSNs. In recent times, thorough study of brain storm optimization (BSO) algorithms has been applied in many fields and now we use it to solve routing problems. Initially, the low energy adaptive clustering hierarchy (LEACH) is considered using fundamental operations and then optimized using BSO to extend the lifetime of the WSN. The proposed routing algorithm relies on a novel fitness which considers energy and distance. The outcome of LEACH is evaluated and compared; obtained result shows that the proposed approach performs more effectively.

Abstract: A Monte-Carlo study was carried out to investigate the efficiency of different materials to shield the photo-neutrons emitted from radiotherapy LINACs. Several materials were tried at different thickness. Though neutron fluence decreased using all the tried neutron shields, paradoxically they increased the neutron dose to the patient. This is probably due to thermalization of the photoneutrons in the shields, increasing their capture rate in patients tissue.

Abstract: The EFL learners are reluctant to speak English in spoken class than practicing the target language through trial-and-error. There is less progress in their spoken skill and they have poor achievement in spoken assessments. Thus, the study was to find out the students’ attitudes to their English language oral errors. To do so, 100 systematically sampled grade 12 students and their English language teachers were respondents of the study. The study has come up with the following findings. Majority of the students hold erroneous attitudes towards their English language oral errors. They are afraid of making oral errors, demand perfect accuracy, fear of taking risks of making errors. They lacked opportunities which encourage their learning of speaking English. Thus, they had decreased communicative competence in spoken English. This is because of their negative attitudes to their English language oral errors. They feel that their oral errors are indicators of their weakness and they perceive errors as bad habits to be avoided.

Abstract: Transboundary water resources need the cooperation of national governments in the development of policies and strategies for development. A holistic approach on sustainable development with an emphasis on protection of the water basin for the continued use o the resources for all partners is ideal but often hard to achieve. Despite this, there have been 295 water agreements made over the world compared to 327 conflicts. As climate change and anthropogenic activities continues to hold ground as major aspects in water resource management, sustainability is key in ensuring development, peace and adaptation reign. Focusing on the Omo River basin, a DPSIR with qualitative analysis was done on policies and strategies that are will come into effect and are already in place to establish their social, cultural, economic and environmental effects. Based on the current trend, the main focus of both governments seems to be on economic development with an avoidance of any possible negative effects of energy, agricultural and industrial projects.

Abstract: Climate Change is a global issue affecting many nations worldwide. The main drivers of climate change are well known and continues to be pedaled by highly industrialized countries who reap the benefits of their economic activities. The impacts of climate change however are not limited spatially at its source. Nations like Guyana that contribute very little to the problem face harsh consequences of climate change. Guyana is a historically low emitter of greenhouse gases. Guyana’s wide expanse of rainforest even compensates for some global emissions footprint yet Guyana is one of the most vulnerable countries. Guyana’s coast is particularly susceptible.

Abstract: Water is a scarce resource hence there is a general concern over its use. In particular, freshwater scarcity is recognized as a prominent environmental concern. As a result, the concept of water footprint as a measure to tackle the potential impacts of water use arose. The balance in water consumption is necessary because freshwater is essential to the daily life of human beings and its supply is also limited. As the global population rises, the need for fresh water grows too.

Abstract: Attendance is the action or state of going regularly to or being present at a place or event. Attendance in an organization is important to ensure the continuous operation as it determines the strength of the organization. In most institutions the current attendance monitoring system for students is still being manually done. This method is time consuming, error prone and fosters laziness on the part of students, nonchalance attitude to classroom lectures and activities, student nepotism and deliberate lecture skipping which may prevent students from obtaining good academic performance. One reliable and efficient way to curb and totally do away with the error prone, student nepotism etc. is employing computerized fingerprint recognition attendance monitoring system which will enable management of the department ascertain the academic strength of each student in terms of student punctuality, regularity, commitment to classroom lectures and generate reliable attendance report for each student stored in a secured database.

Abstract: Rules about the mean of a Gaussian distribution are presented and compared. Considering the square error loss function, our approximate Bayesian decision rule for the mean of a normal population is derived. Using normal data and SAS software, our approximate Bayesian test results were compared to their classical counterparts obtained with the well-known classical decision rule. It is shown that the proposed approximate Bayesian decision rule relies only on observations that are under study. The classical decision rule, which uses the standard normal and the student-t statistics, does not always yield the best results; the proposed approach performs often
