Ihinmikaiye, Samuel Olatokunbo; Ochekwu, Edache Bernard; Ikuli, Josiah Muonam

Abstract: Ethnobotanical study on the plant species used for storage was carried out within forty communities in Bayelsa State. Eight plant species belonged to six different families were identified as botanicals valued for storage and preservative purposes, most of which are herbs. The result revealed that the plant species identified were alleged to be safe, available and exhibit different growth habits. However, two of the species (Braschystegia nigerica and Xylopia aethiopica) are trees, and are rare as they served other primary uses. Different sections of the plant species were extracted for storage purposes, and members of Marantaceae were the most exploited for storage. As the pattern of plants use among locals becomes ecologically unsustainable, there is a need to document the floras use for storage purposes and determine their abundant status in the State.

A Security System Using Seal, Blowfish and Idea Algorithm for Credit Card Data
Soleman, Azlan Irwan

Abstract: Document privacy is very important with communication technology in an innovative era of globalization. However, when the document changes hands or the document is sent, there is still a risk of data damage and the document can be changed by an unrelated party so that document security is necessary. If the confidentiality and authenticity of documents are damaged by irresponsible parties, the information is no longer useful. For this reason, a text encryption application was created using the SEAL, Blowfish and IDEA algorithms. A combination of these three algorithms will create better algorithm security for the company. The IDEA algorithm is a symmetric cryptography with high security which is not based on the confidentiality of the algorithm but emphasizes the security or confidentiality of the key used. The goal is to produce stronger and more secure data security, a combination of the SEAL algorithm for data encryption and the IDEA algorithm is used to maintain data confidentiality and security by going through the description process, as well as the Blowfish algorithm to maintain the confidentiality of user login data, so that only the person concerned can read the information. The important files that the researcher will secure are Emboss files in the form of credit card data and customer data with a Microsoft Office extension (.doc, .docx, xlx, .xlsx) and with text extension. The results of testing the SEAL, Blowfish and IDEA Algorithms are the time obtained to encode and decode is directly proportional to the size of the file being processed (the smaller the file size is processed, the faster the encode and decode process, the larger the file size, the longer it takes. encode and decode process).

Tasnima Mahjabin, Ahmed Jubayer, Kazi Abul Kalam, Elora Parvin, Md. Shamsuzzoha, Md. Nazrul Islam Khan, Md. Hafizul Islam

Abstract: Agricultural productivity is largely dependent on nutritional status of farmers who are the central of agricultural development. This study aimed to assess prevalence and predictors of different forms of malnutrition and physical activity level (PAL) among farmers of selected agroecological zone of Bangladesh. The study was conducted in two subdistricts of 8th agroecological zone of Bangladesh. 360 households were selected randomly and printed version of questionnaire was used to record necessary information. Nutritional status was assessed by calculating Body Mass Index (BMI) and physical activity level was measured based on self-reported information. Anthropometric information was collected for 357 farmers. Mean age, weight and height was 52±12 years, 58.45±10kg and 161.76±5.89cm respectively. About one-third (34.7%) of study participants were identified as overweight, 12.9% as underweight and 6.7% farmers were obese. Prevalence of overweight and obesity was higher among younger farmers (<49years). Odds of being overweight was 3.54times higher at Singair (AOR:3.54, p<0.0001) as compared to farmers of Sreepur upazila. Other covariates for overweight were young farmer (AOR: 2.31, p=0.008) and illiterate farmers (AOR:0.49, p=0.027). Mean PAL value and total energy expenditure was 2.2±0.05 and 3641.77±56 kcal respectively. Quite similarities were observed between farmers of two residential area although proportion of farmers with excessive physical activity was higher at Sreepur. Burden of overnutrition and physical activity level was correspondingly high among farmers with poor dietary diversity and low level of education. Appropriate intervention strategies fostering proper access to health information and health education for famers may be needed.

Isdore Onyema Akwukwaegbu, Chisom Patrick Mbachu, Nsan-Awaji Peterson Ene-Nte

Abstract: The petroleum industry is located in one of the most active lightning zones in the world with a keraunic level of about 140 lightning days per year. In the past, lightning strikes have reportedly caused severe damages to the petroleum industry facilities, control and communication equipment, etc. This Paper therefore evaluates available types of lightning and surge protection systems and proposes the best system or combination of systems for the Nigeria petroleum industry; which will utilize Charge Transfer Technology known as Dissipated Array System (DAS) developed by Lightning Eliminators Consultants (LEC), with all connections linked to earth grid. Proposed in this paper, is the installation of effective surge protection scheme, to minimize secondary effects of lightning strikes on the electrical systems by equipping such systems with metal oxide surge arrestors and installation of effective surge protection scheme on both ends (input/output) of instrumentation cables and protecting all data, communication and electronic control circuits with multi-element surge suppression devices. All the main power, control and communication feeders to the facility and office complexes should be protected by the effective coordinated installation of lightning arrestors, transient voltage suppressors(TVSS) as well as Power Distribution Supplies(PDS)/ Uninterrupted Power Supplies(UPS) units for major facilities such as the control and communication. The deployment of combination of options a, b, c and d surge protection systems at transformer high voltage connections, process control, fire/ gas and safeguarding systems, communications circuits and panel board feeders supplying sensitive electronic loads would eventually provide greater advantageous results.
