The common major problem of all urban and developing cities or provinces is traffic congestion. Moreover, Surigao City, Surigao del Norte, Philippines is one of the developing provinces that experiencing congestion in particular Rizal St. and San Nicolas St. intersection which needs improvement. This study aimed to perform analysis of the intersection to rate its performance quality using Level of Service (LOS) based on the calculated control delay in seconds per vehicle. The Vehicle Analyzer Application (VAA) WAS created to show the number of vehicles detected by adjusting the threshold value from the slider. It WAS applied by Mixture of Gaussian with shadow detection as a background segmentation using the image processing techniques and algorithm (image segmentation, bilateral filter edge detection and contours) to be able to get the vehicle count on each lane and the classification of the vehicles. The SECOND video processed by the VAA classifier got the highest F1 score accuracy percentage of 80.86% taken last November 15, 2018 due to a fair weather, noise, small movements of the camera, occlusions, pedestrians passing IN the road, and the bit rate and resolution of the video that contributed error. Following the calculations of a Signalized Intersection Methodology of HCM 2000, the intersection has a control delay of 33.1 sec/veh and an LOS C which causes much higher delays that results noticeable congestion and fair progression of vehicles.

In the advent of Covid-19 where netizens were forced to stay at home, they stormed the internet to engage with other netizens in lieu of socialization. Among all social media sites, Twitter has become a popular platform for netizens to express their thoughts and beliefs on a variety of themes. Since the Covid-19 is a novel disease which everyone isn’t prepared for, the netizens have different responses toward it. This study, therefore, aimed to plot Covid-19 related trends to identify which trends were constantly discussed and were fluctuating. Given the observed descriptive analysis of these trends, this study then analyzed the data relating it to other Covid-19 related trends and to the existing data of Covid-19 cases. The topical categories identified from mining Covid-19 related trends include health, politics, government interventions, human activities, perceptions, and education. Moreover, it was found out that the rise and fall of Covid-19 cases in the country has no significant relationship to the trends on Twitter. Therefore, the netizens continue to discuss topics on Twitter regardless of the data on Covid-19 cases. The way the netizens communicate with other netizens and the way they react to the novel disease is, thus, unpredictable. This means there might be other factors that could have caused the netizens to engage with and discuss the different topical categories.

This study was conducted to investigate the writing anxiety of all English 230 students during the second semester, school year 2014-2015 at Mindanao State University Marawi City. Specifically, the study sought to find out the level, types, and causes of the writing anxiety of the English 230 students. The researcher made use of both quantitative and qualitative methods of research. Findings revealed that majority of the teacher-respondents and parent-respondents preferred trilingual education. As to the language attitudes of Meranaw teacher-respondents and Meranaw parent-respondents on the use of Meranaw (Mother Tongue) as a language of instruction (LOI), majority of them favoured the use of Meranaw inside the classroom. However, in some aspects of mother tongue use as LOI, they showed vague understanding on the concepts relating to the difficulty of learners to learn Filipino as a subject if they are exposed to Meranaw language and the enhancement of their writing skills if Meranaw language is used in the classroom. They further expressed their negative attitudes on some aspects like the difficulty of learners to understand English if they are exposed to Meranaw language, their dependence on its use when learning English, and their dependence on translating English words into Meranaw. These respondents also have different views on the idea that there are adequate teaching materials to conduct learning in Meranaw; that, teacher’s difficulty in translating some English words into Meranaw language might give the learners problems in their comprehension; and that using Meranaw language as LOI will retard mastery of the English language. The Meranaw parent-respondents, however, have no opinion towards these ideas. Regarding the enhancement of pupils’ reading ability and their difficulty in understanding all Meranaw words, the teacher-respondents have no opinion towards it while the parent-respondents expressed agreement to these ideas.

Physical education for kids is to help develop their fundamental motor skills and refine their movement. Physical education has evolved from simple drills to various activities to improve the physical well-being of individuals and communities. The purpose of the study was to assess the postural assessment of locomotor skills among elementary pupils attending Mindanao State University Integrated Laboratory School (ILS), Marawi City, Lanao Del Sur, the Philippines. This was a descriptive study. Data was collected from 247 pupils in grades 1 to 3 were used for the study using convenient and stratified sampling techniques. The instrument used for this study was an erect line apparatus drawn in cloth with string hung in front and a digital camera. Data collected was analyzed using descriptive statistics of frequencies, percentages, mean scores, and Pearson correlation moment. The study found that most of the pupils were between the ages of 8 years (31.98%), males 131 (53.34%), the majority had good postural assessment (239, 96.76%) and had a slight marked deviation in locomotor skill performance in walking skill 134 (54.25%). There is no significant association with profile of the respondents and postural assessment. There was no relationship between the profile along age, gender, BMI, and locomotor skill performance. However, it was discovered that postural assessment and locomotor skill performance has a highly significant relationship. We must hire physical education teachers to kindergartens, primary, and elementary schools to teach locomotor skills effectively to pupils. Also, the school administrators should support the physical education teachers to provide the necessary programs to enhance pupils' posture and locomotor activities.

Teacher quality refers to the level of teachers’ capability in providing education for their students by taking into account the capability of each student. However, according to a pre-survey, teacher quality in B-accredited private elementary schools in Bogor regency was still considered low. This concern intrigued the researcher to formulate several new methods and strategies which could be implemented in order to improve teacher quality by identifying and developing certain affecting variables which included organization support, training effectiveness, and collaboration. This study involved 710 teachers from 73 B-accredited private elementary schools in Bogor Regency as the population. Proportional random sampling method was administered for this study while the samples were taken by using Slovin formula with the sampling error rate of 5%. The final samples were 256 teachers from 38 schools. The method of this study was quantitative method with SITOREM analysis. The results showed that there is a positive and significant relation between organization support and teacher quality with correlation coefficient (RY1) of 0.759 (strong), there is a positive and significant relation between training effectiveness and teacher quality with correlation coefficient(RY1) of 0.726 (strong), and there was a positive and significant relation between collaboration and teacher quality with correlation coefficient(RY1) of 0.591 (medium). These result simplied that teacher productivity and quality can be improved by reinforcing the variables of organization support, training effectiveness, and collaboration. Based on SITOREM analysis from these research variables, there are sixteen indicators that need to be adjusted in order to improve teacher quality. On the level of priority, they are; 1) commitment to improve employees’ welfare, 2) work rewards, 3) contribution, 4)environmental circumstances, 5)cost effectiveness, 6) behaviours, 7) feedbacks, 8) organization results, 9)shared perceptions, 10)priority on common interest, 11)benefits,12)interactions,13) integrity, 14) creativity, 15) inspirations, and 16) professionalism.

This study utilized pre-test and post-test quasi-experimental designs with quantitative and qualitative research approaches. The quantitative design was used to determine whether a significant relationship existed between the independent variable (revoicing, orienting, negotiating, and concretizing mathematics discourse structure) and the dependent variable (students’ conceptual understanding). The study involves selected Grade 7 Meranaw students from MSU UTC. The grade 7 students were selected because it's the level where the foundations of junior high mathematics were introduced. The data collection was done using questionnaires, interviews, modules, observations, and online classes. This study used a quasi-experimental design with an experimental group exposed to discursive styles in teaching. The findings indicated that discursive techniques in teaching algebra were found to be significant to students' conceptual understanding and performance in mathematics. Therefore, the researcher recommends teachers assess the background of their students and use discursive styles in their teaching-learning process to help students perform better in algebra. Moreover, students should put their efforts into learning algebra. Lastly, the researcher recommends future researchers on the relation of discursive styles in teaching algebra to students' conceptual understanding.

The activity of converting forest areas to non-forestry land uses has an impact on the decline in the function of forests as a buffer for sustainable development. The attempts to maintain the existence of forests need serious attention and need comprehensive, multi-sectoral handling, especially in the Mangrove Forest sector. The conversion of mangrove forest areas is caused by several factors, including community activities that convert forest areas into ponds. This study aimed to analyze the economic value of mangrove forests that are managed for tourism purposes and which have been converted into ponds and to analyze the economic value of mangrove forest management which is managed for the purpose of a combination of tourism ponds. The method used in this study was interview method with the community. The data obtained was then analyzed by using descriptive and quantitative analysis which was then calculated by using the method of calculating the total economic value (TEV). The results showed that there was a total economic value that was quite different between the two research locations, where in the mangrove forest area that had been converted into pond had a total economic value of 45,077,871/ha/year; while, in the mangrove forest area for tourism purposes, it had a total economic value of 45,077,871/ha/year. The total economic value is 85,381,115/ha/year. From the value of the two locations, the mangrove forest area for tourism purposes has a greater total economic value than the mangrove forest area that has been converted to pond due to some of the ecological functions of the mangrove forest that have been converted to pond land; while in the Mangrove forest area for tourism, it has added value in the form of economic value obtained from it. Therefore, to optimize the management of mangrove forests that have been converted into pond, a forest management scenario planning design is made with a combination between forest management method and the MMSSL management method (Mundur Selangkahuntuk Maju Sepuluh Langkah/ Step Back for Ten Steps Forward).

Directorate General of Taxes, need to modernize tax administration. Taxpayers are currently able to fulfil their online tax reporting obligations, known as e-filing. Because the submission is online, the Notification Letter (SPT) submitted must also be in electronic form or e-SPT. Electronic reporting of tax obligations is expected to increase taxpayer compliance. The adoption of e-SPT in the Taxation sector as an effort to improve taxpayer compliance is interesting to study. In this case, the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) Theory offers a powerful and simple explanation for the acceptance of technology and the behaviour of its users (Venkatesh, 1999). Based on (Venkatesh, 1999), acceptance of technology is determined by individual perceptions and intentions which will ultimately shape a person's behaviour in accepting a technology, namely e-SPT. This study aims to determine how the effect of taxpayer compliance antecedents in the perspective of the Technology Acceptance Model. This research was conducted on 90 MSME taxpayers registered at the Tax Service Office (KPP) Pratama throughout Denpasar City using PLS-SEM analysis, with the help of SmartPLS 3.0 Software. The results show that e-SPT self-efficacy can act as an antecedent in an effort to increase perceptions of behavior in using e-SPT in increasing tax reporting administration compliance as mandated by law.

This document analyses the effect of the regulation on the pharmaceutical industry’s innovation processes. The objective is analyzing the effect of the regulation on the development of an innovative drug produced by a Mexican-based pharmaceutical company. This is an exploratory-type and case study design research. The case is the development of a new diabetes drug. Data was gathered mainly through semi-structured interviews to the company’s staff, who took part in the innovation project. To understand the effect of the regulation, we started from the analysis of the regulatory requirements that the company had to meet. The different stages of the innovation process were analyzed—it was found that most of the effects are focused into three stages: (i) the stage where human beings are involved for developing tests (clinical trial stage), (ii) the sanitary registration stage, the process in which the drug to be marketed complies with the safety, efficiency, and quality conditions, and (iii) the manufacturing stage, in order to guarantee the appropriate manufacturing of the drug according to good practices. Regulations lead to both positive and negative effects. Among the positive effects, it is important to highlight the regulations on intellectual property and on the drug’s quality. Main negative effects are related to the implementation of the regulation, rather than to the requirements implied. Throughout the innovation process, the regulation caused some delays in the planned activities, leading to cost increases, loss of competitiveness, and uncertainty about the return on investment.

Research into the use of films and film-making has documented its role and effects on learning and teaching English as a foreign language (EFL). In particular, filmmaking allows students to develop communication skills and become more active and creative in their learning compared to conventional approach. However, few studies have been conducted to investigate how students perceived the effects of making films or trailers in English classes in tertiary contexts, particularly, in literature classes. This paper therefore examines students’ perceptions of the effectiveness of making short films in a literature class in a Vietnamese university in the Mekong Delta, Vietnam. Questionnaire and interviews were conducted with English-majored sophomores in English Language and Culture Studies. The findings from the current study indicate that participating students found film-making useful as this experience encouraged them to think critically and creatively in their learning process.Implications for teachers and students are provided to pave a new way for extending the use of film-making as a tool for innovative learning experience in English as a foreign language context with particular regard to literature and existing knowledge about the film-related themes.

The Mount Rinjani National Park has many potentials in creating jobs, promoting local products and socio-cultures. Natural tourism is an option of alternative tourism in which its management can be realized based on three aspects, i.e., social, economic, and environmental values. These are three supporting factors of the Ecopreneurship concept (Triple Drivers of Ecopreneurship). One of the tourism destinations at the Mount Rinjani National Park is Joben Ecopark. Therefore, as an initial step in developing natural tourism based on the ecopreneurship concept at the Mount Rinjani National Park is to create a roadmap design of Joben Ecopark of 2020-2023. This study used a qualitative method with parties related to Joben Ecopark, i.e., Mount Rinjani National Park Office, Joben Village people, and the Regional Government of the West Nusa Tenggara Province. The study results demonstrated that the Mount Rinjani National Park Office Program in actualizing SDGs target 8.9 based on the ecopreneurship concept at Joben Ecopark has not implemented technical review and arranged the object development master plan. Also, public participation in promoting local products and cultures based on the ecopreneurship concept at Joben Ecopark has not maximized due to the absence of programs from related parties. Therefore, this study created a roadmap design of Joben Ecopark based on the ecopreneurship concept of 2020-2023 arranged in a new normal tourism lifestyle to achieve SGDs 2030 target 8.9. The roadmap design of Joben Ecopark is tourism object design, tourism destination development, institutional and human resource capacity improvement, building creative tourism industries, and enhancing natural tourism promotions at Joben Ecopark.

Trawl fishery is a mixed fishery targeting numerous species including consequential huge amounts of non-targeted species, referred to as low value bycatch/trash fish. The aim of the present study is to analyse the composition of trawl bycatch and its management in view of its proper utilization for aqua feed. Random samples of trash fish were collected fortnightly between March 2019 and February 2020 from single day and multi day trawler landings at Visakhapatnam Fishing Harbour (VFH). The preliminary process of utilizing the landed trash fish at VFH is observed. The results of the study revealed the presence of 38 dominant species of finfish and shellfish, representing the families, Leiognathidae, Trichiuridae, Mullidae, Clupeidae and Nemipteridae with 29.73%, 22.5%, 18.69%, 11.96% and 10.59% respectively of 609.991 tons total landing during the study period. The highest landing is 83.362 t reported in the month of Feb, 2019 and lowest landing is 32.2 t reported in the month of Oct, 2020. The study concludes that considerable trash fish composition is being landed at VFH, causing the necessity for Entrepreneurs, to pay immediate attention towards the utilization of total trawl bycatch in terms of converting it into feed and supply to aquaculture and poultry industries. Further research will be beneficial for policy makers to address better trawl bycatch management options.

Students’ motivation as a performance aspect of modern librarianship tertiary programs in Vietnam has not yet been discussed in library and information science literature. With its three-fold theoretical rationale (that motivation and academic achievement are related, motivation changes through time, and motivation is regulated by numerous factors) formulated from Ryan and Deci’s Self-Determination Theory (1985), the study seeks to quantatively measure students’ motivation using a 6-item questionnaire delivered to 164 Library and Information majors (LIMs) at Can Tho University (CTU). Cronbach’s Alpha was calculated to check the questionnaire’s internal reliability, while frequencies and Pearson correlation coefficients revealed a non-relationship between LIMs’ motivation level and their grade point average, a reducing number of highly-motivated LIMs, and causal sources of low motivation. These three findings necessitate motivation-raising solutions,one being making motivation a strong predictor of academic achievement (which advocates the 1989’s view of Pintrich on motivation research and that of Deci and Ryan’s 1985); and another: building motivation by satisfying students’ needs for competence, relatedness, and autonomy (which encompasses the main postulate of Deci and Ryan’s 1985-conceived Self-Determination Theory). The findings and the solutions can bea source of reference for other higher educational institutions that offer library-information programs.

In Vietnam, EFL learners have always been concerned about improving their grammar knowledge, and many efforts have been made to do so through various methods. Some studies suggest engaging students in their learning process and focusing their attention on untilizing multimedia and visualizations in form of infographics. However, little research has been conducted on the topic, and the current study is an attempt to find empirical evidence for such a suggestion in Vietnam context. This study was designed to examine the impact of infographics instruction on grammar learning. While the experimental group learned grammar with infographics instruction, the controlled group learned it with routine and traditional techniques. Finding reveals that infographics instruction was an effective instrument to help EFL learners learn English grammar.

El objetivo de este artículo es analizar las estrategias discursivas de los candidatos a la Presidencia de la República en las elecciones de 2018 en México, con el objetivo de identificar los efectos de los mensajes en los potenciales electores. La investigación utiliza metodología cualitativa a partir de un análisis del discurso de los tres candidatos durante los debates presidenciales En ese sentido, se detectó que la palabra más utilizada por Andrés Manuel López Obrador es corrupción; por José Antonio Meade progreso y miedo y por José Antonio Anaya cambio. Respecto a la estrategia de los discursos, se detectó que la más usada es la ad baculum (promoviendo el miedo) en contra de AMLO (por parte de Meade y Anaya), pero que no tuvo efectos importantes en el electorado, debido a que era mayor el hartazgo al régimen político y la corrupción. Por su parte, Andrés Manuel López Obrador la estrategia que más usa es el ad populum, la cual logró buena aceptación. El trabajo de campo se realizó a partir de un estudio de gabinete de análisis del discurso y en el caso de los spots se utilizaron grupos de enfoques de estudiantes universitarios, para detectar que spots tenían más impacto y por qué (se trabajó con una muestra de 9 spots de los tres principales candidatos). En ese sentido, se encontró que los estudiantes universitarios tienden a identificarse más con el mensaje de Andrés Manuel López Obrador, destacando el spot en donde llama \"marranos y cochinos\" a la mafia del poder (un 85 %) . En segundo lugar, se identifican con Ricardo Anaya por sus propuestas de cambio y por considerar sus propuestas de política pública innovadora (12 %). En tercer lugar (sólo un 3 %) se identificó con José Antonio Meade del PRI y menos del 1 % con \"El Bronco\".

In the educational context, one of the biggest problems that affect the performance of school institutions is what concerns dropouts. This study aims to describe the state of the art of school dropouts. It considered that the decision of students to interrupt their training itinerary brings adverse effects not only for the subject who evades since the magnitude of this problem causes damage to the whole society. The method used was the conceptual bibliographic submitted by Nascimento-e-Silva (2012; 2020), which consists of four phases: a) definition of research questions; b) data collection; c) organization and analysis of data, and; d) generation of responses. The study inferred that among the causes detected in the consulted literature, there are both causes relevant to the personal scope of students who drop out and the causes related to the education system and how education is organized from an institutional point of view. The conclusion shows that the school institutions need to constantly observe what science produces about dropout, to strengthen themselves in terms of managing and controlling the causes that support the phenomenon of dropping out of school.

The principal aim of this paper is to investigate the stakeholders’ perception on the impact of the Lagos Metropolitan Development and Governance Project (LMDGP) on housing neighbourhood conditions in some selected areas in Lagos State, Nigeria. The specific objectives are; to assess stakeholders’ perceptions on the impact of LMDGP on the housing neighbourhood conditions in the study area, and also to appraise the stakeholders’ perception on the factors militating against effective implementation of urban regeneration projects in the study area. The study adopts a survey approach by purposively administering questionnaires to 137 stakeholders comprising government agents, residents, and property investors. The reliability of the questionnaire was determined at a Cronbach’s Alpha value of 0.886. Out of the total 137 questionnaires that were distributed, 107 were retrieved giving a response rate of 78.1%. The data collected were analysed using weighted average score, WAS, standard deviation and principal component analysis, PCA. Results based on the stakeholders’ perception show that the housing conditions most significantly impacted by the urban regeneration projects in the study areas are; decline in traffic congestion, ease of access, and adequate street lighting; while the overall quality of life was not significantly impacted. Economic, market research and analysis, bureaucracy, land acquisition, lack of public participation, risks/no maintenance plan, delays in project execution, and policy initiatives/tax are the factors limiting effective implementation of urban regeneration projects.

Palm sugar is one of the businesses developed widely by the community, mostly those around the forest. The use of sugar palm as a non-timber forest product has been cultivated for generations. However, this business has not been managed as a sustainable business unit with a simple business model. The study aimed to develop a sugar business model through the application of the business model canvas (BMC) and blue ocean strategy (BOS). The business model is applied in the palm sugar business in Sinjai Regency, South Sulawesi, Indonesia. Data collection technique was conducted by using a participatory approach with observation techniques, direct observation of the production, packaging and marketing activities of palm sugar done by palm sugar producers (farmers) at the research location. In-depth interviews using interview guidelines were also conducted to obtain an overview related to the palm sugar business model. Identification of internal environmental factors (IFAS) and external environmental factors (EFAS) was carried out through a SWOT analysis on nine key elements of BMC. The formulation of the business model is conducted by integrating BMC and BOS on the nine elements of BMC in the palm sugar business. The positioning of this business quadrant is in quadrant I with a progressive strategy which means that the palm sugar business is in good condition so it has the potential to grow and can compete with the application of the right business model.
