Assessment of Methods and Applications of Competency Frameworks in the Nigerian Private Sector Organizations
Dr. Remi Samuel

Abstract: The study examines the aspects of job-competency management [JCAM] tools that are applicable in Nigerian organizations in particular to establish the level of awareness and specify the areas of applications using a sample of human resource managers from different sectors. The study found that the JCAM tools is widely known and applied across the sectors particularly in areas of human resourcing with limited applications to performance management, talent and leadership development while compensation-based application is low. The study recommends the adoption of the JCAM tools as viable HRM models for improving performance effectiveness and enhancing organizational competitive advantage in Nigeria.

The Practice of Presidential System in Indonesia
Dr. A. Muhammad Asrun, SH.MH

Abstract: The recent change of governmental system to the Presidential system in Indonesia has raised many questions particularly relating to the implementation of such system. Whilst the meaning and scope of the presidential system outlined in the national constitution has nothing to do with the involvement of the parliament body, but in practice this condition cannot be realized. This paper aims at discussing the practice or implementation of the presidential system in Indonesia using arguments advanced in the literature as well as the national constitution. It was argued that political ethics should be put in front in implementing the Presidential system. The reason is partly because political ethics have ability to organize as well as to regulate desire of the interest group to have a dominant power by building institutions more equitable and dignified. By having political ethics the decision made will be fair and able to control and avoid as much as possible misuse of interests. The results will be the interests of the nation and the State rather than the interests of class or group. Also, it is argued that to be able to play an active role to implement the policies, the government or the state needs to have power and authority. These power or authorities are useful to foster cooperation and to resolve conflicts that may arise in the process of policy implementation and decision making. Therefore, political education to the elites is a must in order to make the presidential system that was agreed and guided in Pancasila and the 1945 National Constitution are effective. The importance of political ethics and education given to the members of parliament can also minimize any wrong doing toward corruption, collusion and nepotism.

Invitro Antihelmintic Activities of Four Medicinal Plants against Haemonchus contortus
Hailelule Aleme, Yordanos Awetahegne, Abraha Tesfaye

Abstract: In vitro experiments were conducted to find out the anthelmintic effects of crude aqueous extracts of the leaves of Cordia africana, Achyranthes aspera, Croton macrostachyus and Schinus molle against adults of live H. contortus and the efficacy of these crude aqueous extracts of leaves were determined based on the mortality rate of the adult parasite. The plants tested for the efficacy at 4mg/ml of the aqueous extracts of Cordia africana, Achyrantus aspera, Schinus molle and Croton macrostachyus was 95%, 90%, 80% and 70% respectively against the adult stage of Haemonchus contortus. The efficacy of Albendazole against the adult parasite, on the other hand, was dose dependent and all the adult worms were dead at a concentration of 0.5mg/ml within 24 hours. The overall findings of the current study indicated that most of the plants have potential anthelmintic effect and further in vitro and in vivo evaluation should proceed using these plants in the future.

Breaking the Silence: The Efficacy of Whistleblowing in Improving Transparency
Siti Noor Azmawaty Abd Razak, Wan Nurul Basirah Wan Mohamad Noor, Maheran Zakaria

Abstract: There has been a substantial increase in the recognition of the importance of whistleblowing as a means of reducing corruption. It could enhance a country’s Corruption Perception Index (CPI) scor es and indirectly enhance her dignity. While recognizing that whistleblowing is a powerful tool to prevent and detect malpractices, very few decided to blow the whistle due to the fear of retaliation, legal liabilities and cultural oppositions. These barriers should be removed in order to internalize whistleblowing as a positive means of improving transparency in the organizations, over and above the government as a whole.

Pesticide-handling practices among smallholder Vegetable farmers in Oyo state, Nigeria
Ugwu, J. A., Omoloye, A. A, Asogwa, E.U, Aduloju, A.R

Abstract: Pesticide use among smallholder farmers in Nigeria has been associated with significant health hazards. The study evaluates the pesticide handling practices among vegetable farmers in Oyo State Nigeria. Random samples of one hundred and fifty (150) vegetable farmers were interviewed using structured questionnaire in ten selected local government areas of Oyo state Nigeria. Data obtained were subjected to descriptive and inferential statistics. Majority of the farmers (74%) suffered from at least one health symptom associated with pesticide handling. However, most of them (65.4 %) claimed to have adopted the use of at least one or two safety protective equipment during pesticide application. A good number of the smallholder vegetable farmers (58.7%)do not have access to information on safety tips about pesticide handling or training on pesticide management. Cost of protective equipment and lack of training on pesticide handling seemed to be the most significant factors that influence proper pesticide handling practices among smallholder vegetable farmers in the state. It is therefore recommended that the regulatory agencies for pesticide use in Nigeria should implement the policy that will prohibit injudicious use of pesticide and provide effective training / workshop for the small holder farmers, retailers and all pesticide workers on the safety measures of pesticide application. The study also recommended integrated pest management (IPM) approaches for continued vegetable production to minimize risks associated with pesticide usage.

Comparative Studies on Integration of Photovoltaic in Hot and Cold Climate
Mobark Mohamed Osman, Asst.Prof.Dr.Halil Zafer Alibaba

Abstract: Photovoltaic modules (panels) have potentiality of generating clean, silent, electricity without burning of fuel fossil which may cause tremendous damage to our natural environment. When photovoltaic is integrated in building envelope, it would serve a dual purposes, first generate electricity secondly serves as a building element. For the photovoltaic integration to fulfill its optimum goal it should uplift building appearance, and enhance aesthetic quality and flexibility of the building. The objective of this research is to investigate the efficiency of photovoltaic integration in building in hot and cold climates, and how could it be optimized for sustainable development. The methodology adapted was based on comparative case studies of office buildings from hot climate, where Sudan was chosen as case study area, and for cold climates NCC Office building in Finland. It was discovered that thin film PV panel is more appropriate for hot climates and polycrystalline for cold climates.
