THE INFLUENCE OF ANTECEDENT EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT TOWARD EMPLOYEE PERFORMANCE AT ISLAMIC GENERAL BANKS IN THE CITY OF MAKASSAR
Musafir, Osman Lewangka , Indriyanti Sudirman , Musran Munizu

Abstract: This research aims at analyzing the influence of employee satisfaction, perceived organizational support, and holistic intelligence towards employee engagement and employee performance. A population is all employees of six Islamic General Banks in the City of Makassar amounted to 463 employees while samples are 203 employees with the representative of proportional sample amount in each bank. The technique of data collection is a questionnaire. Data are analyzed quantitatively by Structural Equation Model (SEM) with the assistance of Amos 22 software. Findings reveal that (1) employee satisfaction, holistic intelligence have positive and significant influence towards employee performance and employee engagement; (2) perceived organizational support has a significant influence towards employee engagement yet it does not have a significant influence towards employee performance; and (3) employee engagement has a positive and significant influence towards employee performance. Employee engagement works as a good mediator in improving employee performance.

Optimization of Feeding With Organic Chromium Supplement in Different Concentrations on the Ammonia Excretion and the Growth of Snakehead Fish Seeds (Channa Striata)
Andi Khaeriyah, Haryati, Yusri Karim, Zainuddin

Abstract: The purposes of this study were 1) to evaluate the optimal carbohydrate-protein levels to suppress ammonia excretion in the media of snakehead fish farming and 2) to evaluate the optimal organic chromium concentration as a feed supplement that can increase the snakehead growth and survival rate. Based on the analysis of variance result, it showed that the treatment of chromium concentration and the carbohydrate-protein levels as well as the interaction between the two of them brought the effect (P < 0,05) on the ammonia excretion and the growth of snakehead fish seeds (Channa striata). Duncan multiple range test results showed that the treatments produced the ammonia excretion and obtained the highest growth from the feeding with the levels of 35% carbohydrate, 40% protein, and 5ppm of chromium. Meanwhile, the treatment resulting the lowest growth obtained from the feeding with the levels of 40% carbohydrate, 35% protein, and 3ppm of chromium, and this was not significantly different from the obtained result with 25% carbohydrate, 40% protein, and 3ppm of chromium levels.

REDUCE COST OF PRODUCTION AND SPECIAL PRACTICE WITH PADDY CULTIVATION
Mr. S.Lakshan, Dr. A.K. Karunarathne

Abstract: Yield of a crop of rice is dependent upon many obvious factors irrigation, fertilization, weeding, and pest and disease control. One of the less obvious but equally important factors is land preparation. Were selected areas to eastern province in tow location palugamam and navithanwelly each location soil condition, availability of water, soil type, are same. Mainly farmers are cultivated paddy in rainy season (maha).Most important practices the correct land preparation in paddy cultivation. Were collected data from twenty farmers each farmers are what are implement are used they did land preparation (tine tiller, rotavator, disc). Primary, secondary land preparation most important correctly combine implement to get good yield. Primary land preparation (disc, tine tiller) secondary land preparation (rotavator ,tine tiller) this combine impalements used got high yield paddy cultivation this farmers use this implement purposely because department of agriculture instruction form agriculture instructors this practice are reduce cost of applications pesticide. Weedicide labour costs any other special practices. Some farmers are considering initial costs to land preparation (used to rotavator from primary, secondary land preparation) so this type of farmers are got less yield because this farmers are sowing paddy seeds after very difficult to control the weeds and pests anyway they want applied so many chemical cultivated land cost are high.

Non-Parametric Test for Detection Trend in Crude Palm Oil Price
Azme Khamis & Che Azmeeza Che Hamat

Abstract: This study was carried out to detect the trends of crude palm oil price (CPO) using non-parametric statistical test. There are three statistical tests that will conduct in this study, which are the Wilcoxon Rank Sum test, Mann Kendall trend test and Sen’s Slope Estimator test. These three methods are used to achieve the objectives which are to determine whether there is a significance difference in CPO prices at the time, ti and ti+1 starting from 2000 until 2014 using the Wilcoxon rank sum test, to figure out the trend of CPO prices using Mann-Kendall trend test and to identify the monthly price trends of CPO prices from 2000 until 2014 respectively using a Sen’s slope estimator test. The data used for this study are monthly data on CPO prices from 2000 until 2014. The findings showed that, there is a trend for all year comparison prices using Mann Kendall trend test except for 2000-2001 and 2013-2014. For a Sen’s slope estimate test, Qmed are positive value for every month and showed the upwards trend.

PERMEABILITY PROPERTIES OF CONCRETE PRODUCED WITH ORDINARY PORTLAND CEMENT (OPC) BLENDED WITH COW DUNG ASH (CDA)
Fredrick J. O., Dambring E. D., Molwus J. J., and Amos N. G

Abstract: This research is aimed at to study the permeability properties of CDA concrete with a view of producing durable blended concrete in terms of water permeability and sorptivity. Concrete cube samples with mix design strength of 25Nmm-2 and water to cement ratio of 0.6 were produced with OPC and partially replaced with CDA at 0, 10, 20 and 30% to OPC content. The research observed that the control samples had greater early strength as compared with that of the CDA samples. This low strength development is as a result of the presence of CDA as filler in the concrete, as pozzolanas are known to reduce the early strength of concrete due to its slow rate of hydration. In both cases, there was an increase in strength with the age of curing. The test results indicated that the flexural strength decrease as CDA percentage content was increased. CDA increases the sorptivity of concrete hence, increasing the ingress of water which could affect the durability of the concrete negatively. There was decrease in the permeability with increase in curing period but increases with increase in the quantity of CDA. The optimum replacement was 10% research for compressive strength, flexural strength sorptivity and water permeability. It can therefore be concluded that CDA is a very good pozzolana which can attain up to 93.64% design strength at 28 days curing period but increase the ingress of moisture into concrete when used but at 10% partial replacement the effect will not be of great concern.
