Abstract: In recent years, many elevated roads have been implemented in the Egyptian city, especially in the capital, because of the demand for transportation and solving traffic problems. This is shown by the informal use of the lost spaces below elevated roads, so these lost spaces are considered a possibility to transform into urban spaces that serve the surrounding urbanization. Those huge structures caused many problems in urbanization, such as cutting the urban fabric, wasting distinctive lands, and created lost urban spaces.

Abstract: Generally, dense urban areas suffer from local parking shortages: a limited supply coupled with a diffuse demand in both space and time. According to this plan, additional vehicles will be searching for available parking spaces, particularly during peak hours. Searching for parking disrupts the economic, environmental, and social sustainability of the city. The purpose of the paper is to optimize parking management, by guiding drivers who request a vacant space. Multi-agent systems can be used as an appropriate modeling approach for the development of such a smart parking guidance system. In order to verify and validate the model, simulations were performed in Tunis city-center. The numerical results show that smart parking guidance systems can manage parking areas more efficiently. It can reduce energy consumption and carbon dioxide emissions, increase revenues for parking managers and satisfy drivers requirements.

Abstract: The legal basis for Tax Collection in Indonesia is the 1945 Constitution Article 23A. Not all individual taxpayers registered in KPP Pratama Batam Utara fulfill their obligations to pay the tax, which means very low tax compliance. The Directorate-General of Tax has the authority to assess the taxpayers’ compliance to meet the tax obligations. The tax sanction is a (preventive) tax instrument for taxpayers to keep them from violating tax values. Understanding the tax regulations affects taxpayers’ compliance with their tax obligations. Tax amnesty helps restructure development through tax.

Abstract: Due to the rapidity with which structures are being constructed nowadays, particularly in developing nations like Nigeria, concrete blocks have become the most commonly used building material. Even though they arent very light, concrete blocks have a high compressive strength, and the ingredients for concrete are easy to find. Some industrialized nations are shifting away from utilizing concrete blocks due to their lack of sustainability, which leads to their being environmentally unfriendly, in favor of compressed earthen blocks (CEB), which are more sustainable in terms of getting resources and more ecologically friendly. This paper investigated the thermal and mechanical performance of compressed earth blocks. The percentage of cement was investigated with 0%, 2%, 4%, and 6% cement sample. Results obtained revealed that the compressive strength was notably high at 28 days after curing, with strength of 10.30 N/mm2. After 28 days of curing, a high UPV of 8622m/s and 8660m/s for 4 and 6 percent cement replacement was reported respectively.

Abstract: Work motivation is a set of energetic forces that originate both within as well as beyond an individuals being, to initiate work-related behavior, and to determine its form, direction, intensity, and duration. Understanding what motivates an organizations employees is central to the study of I–O psychology. It is the force that drives an employee toperform well in their job. Work motivation is highly influenced by the external and internal socio-psychological environment of an individual in working place (Agarwal, 1988).

Abstract: The connection between the employee and the manager is the most important in creating motivation, and the manager is responsible for increase of employee motivation level. Motivating employees is not easy, but it is necessary if they want to progress and be satisfied with their work. Motivation is what makes people work harder, be more productive and, after all, stay in the organization in which they work. With all that in mind, it must be mentioned that there is no single strategy that will magically motivate employees and keep their motivation at a high level. Every employee is unique, has unique attitudes and ideas, and if all employees are to be successfully initiated, managers will need to implement strategies to encourage each employee individually.

Abstract: Literature is clear about how individuals’ capacity to solve real-world problem could be enhanced through mathematics learning. It is also suggested that advances in mathematics and sciences could be promoted by one’s knowledge and skills in mathematics. Yet attitudes of students toward mathematics learning can affect and influence their mathematics results, which in turn can limit their access to taking advantage of opportunities offered by mathematics and sciences. Different dimensions of attitude to mathematics are known but there is the need to determine and nurture, early in students, those dimensions likely to groom them into inventiveness and problem-solving for development. Inspired by the country’s aim at looking to produce students who would become citizens capable of solving societal problems, we used quantitative investigation to explore two of such dimensions: attitudes to mathematics inquiry and enjoyment of mathematics lessons.

Abstract: Since implementing the 2013 curriculum, the government has focused on applying HOTS at school. Beginning in 2018, HOTS questions have been included in the national examination. However, in the national examination of 2018, 40 % of the students in Indonesia struggled to answer the HOTS questions. As a result, there is a decrease of 0,93 in the students scores in both in-state and private high schools. This study focussed on evaluating the use of HOTS in English teacher-made tests at MA NU 03 Sunan Katong Kaliwungu Kendal. From the findings, the comparison between LOTS and HOTS was 47% to 53%. The proportion of HOTS was more than it is expected as the criteria of HOTS were expected to be around 10% to 15% of the total questions. While for the level distribution, analysing was 20%, evaluating was 6%, and the highest, creating with 74%. It suggested that the teacher had already given plenty of HOTS practice to her students in the class by using the daily test. The test also fulfilled the requirement of validity, practicality, and reliability, as shown in the supporting document.

Abstract: Data and information security can be considered one of the most important issues of the 21st century and it is essential to avoid data breaches, decrease the risk of data exposure, and ensure regulatory compliance. Cloud computing is a trending technology in this era. Cloud computing refers to the on-demand availability of digital resources, particularly data storage and computational power, without the user having to manage them directly. Cryptography and steganography can be defined as the most popular techniques that can be used to enhance data and information security inside the cloud. High- level security can be provided when cryptography and steganography are applied together to the cloud platform. Therefore, Hybrid cryptographic algorithms and multilayer steganographic techniques can be combined to develop a security system for efficient and secure data transmission in the cloud to provide availability, integrity, authenticity, confidentiality, and non-repudiation of the data and information. This paper analyzes the performance of cryptographic and steganographic techniques and suggests the best hybrid cryptographic algorithms and multilayer steganographic techniques that can be combined to efficient and secure data transmission in the cloud.

Abstract: Hit Song Science concerns the possibility of predicting whether a song will be a hit before its distribution using automated means such as machine learning software. This has motivated to dig deeper to unravel how different audio features would help to predict if a song would feature in the Billboard Top 100 Chart and build a two-way usability model - both for the musicians composing the music and the labels broadcasting it. The work in this paper also aligns with our team’s vision of exploring real-world applications of machine learning techniques and making them useful in common domains. In this paper, prediction models on data from Million Songs Dataset (MSD), Billboard, and Spotify using machine learning techniques have been explored, and low-level & high-level feature engineering techniques are applied. Finally, a comparison of their performances using various performance metrics has been carried out.

Abstract: An important facing city managers in emerging nations is the management and development of environmentally sound garbage management methods. This results from issues with improper solid waste management that put people at risk for health concerns, emit greenhouse gases, and contaminate land, air, and water. Urban residents are threatened by these issues, which is likely to limit their ability to contribute to the economic growth of their cities. In order to create livable, productive, and ecologically friendly cities, it is crucial to implement efficient and effective solutions to the environmental issues caused by the urban crises. In particular, solid waste management is crucial.
