EFFECTS OF ACTIVITY-BASED APPROACH AND EXPOSITORY METHOD ON STUDENTS ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT IN BASIC SCIENCE.
ODUTUYI, Musili O.

Abstract: The study investigated the effects of activity-based approach and expository method on students academic achievement in Basic Science. The specific objectives of the study were to determine the effect of activity-based approach and expository method on students academic achievement in Basic Science. It also examined the influence of gender on students academic achievement when taught using activity-based approach. The study adopted the pre-test-post-test, control group in quasi-experimental design. Eighty-seven (87) Junior Secondary School two (JSSII) Basic Science students in their intact classes from two purposively selected co-educational schools in Ondo West Local Government Area of Ondo State, Nigeria constituted the sample. The instrument used for collection of data was Achievement Test in Basic Science (ATBS). The co-efficient of reliability of ATBS was 0.76 using a test-re-test technique. The data collected were analysed using Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA). The findings of the study showed that, significant difference existed between the achievement of students exposed to activity-based approach and those taught using the expository method. Learners in the activity-based approach group demonstrated better achievement than their counterparts in expository method group. The results also revealed that, gender had no significant effect on the achievement of students in Basic Science. Based on the findings, it is recommended among others that the government should ensure the provision of good functional laboratories that can serve as venues for the teaching and learning of science concepts, from which activity-based approach can be utilized to improve students academic achievement in Basic Science.

Dian Astri Budiana, Darwis Said, Nursini

Abstract: This study aims to determine the effect of village competency and internal control systems on the accountability of village fund management in three sub-districts in Enrekang Regency. The data used in this study are primary data using a questionnaire. The population in this study were village officials involved in managing village finance at each village government. For respondents in each village there were 3 village financial management officials (village head, village secretary, treasurer) and 3 community leaders. The sample of this study was 145 samples. The research method used in this study is a multiple linear regression method using SPSS version 22 software. The results of the study showed that the influence of village competency had a positive and significant effect on the accountability of village fund management with an effect value of 0.288. While the internal control system has a positive and significant effect on the accountability of village fund management with an influence value of 0.328.

Reduce the allocated training time per head in an apparel company by using Arduino technology
O.V Jayasinghe , G.A.P.R Perera

Abstract: Simulator training for industries has been developed during the last decade in almost all the cooperate sectors around the globe. Enhance the time consuming and reducing resource needs for training purposes were expected from the simulator trainings. Currently approximately five industries in Sri Lanka entitled to the field of digital trainings such as aviation, military, marine, railway and medical. Apparel industry is one of the most developed industries in Sri Lanka and giant apparel exporters have being operating with large number of employees. The complexity of the operations inside an apparel company gets increase frequently due to the requirements coming from the international market. Design a suitable module for trainings of newly recruited employees in apparel industry was raised as the time allocation for trainings was identified as critical figure in the process. Develop the quality of the training with the extended support of digital programming is the key expectation from such a project. Arduino as a modern programming tool use for electro-mechanical interfaces can be used successfully to design a well mapped training simulator for apparel industry. Enrich the user friendly training environment with less amount of resource allocating was set as the nominated outcomes from the project. Training time period set per head in the initial training process has been focused to reduce in significant figure in terms of save the time, financial resources and the other factors linked to the training procedure.

ASSESSING THE ZINC CONCENTRATION IN FRUIT AND SEED OF SOME CUCURBITACEAE GROWN IN NIGERIA
Ogbuanu, C.C. and Eneh, O.C.

Abstract: Information-poor countries experience inadequate food supplements, such as zinc due to lack of information and poverty. Zinc content of fruit and seed of Cucurbitaceae family was studied using Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy (AAS). The result showed higher concentrations (mg/kg) of zinc in seeds (pumpkin 82.06 ± 0.033, cucumber 65.04 ± 0.025, water melon 39.97 ± 0.016 and cucumis melon 30.62 ± 0.020) than in fresh fruits (pumpkin 1.82 ± 0.027, cucumber 0.83 ± 0.017, water melon 0.47 ± 0.005 and cucumis melon 0.40 ± 0.010). Since the seeds of pumpkin, cucumber, water melon and cucumis melon were very good sources of zinc, the study recommended their increased consumption to help protect against prostate enlargement, maintain a regular sperm count, mobility and regular level of testosterone and activate many enzymes in every organ in the body.

Sara A. M., Afaf I. A., Sahar M. A., Abubakar A. S., Abdelbagi A. O., Abdalla A. M.

Abstract: The current study was performed to determine the kinds of organophosphorus pesticides residue in milk sample in state of Khartoum-Sudan. 66 samples were collected from breeding farms widespread the state, regarding the areas of high farms concentration. Samples were collected in sterile vacutainers frigid, extracted and analyzed using gas chromatograph GC/FID. Two pesticides belong to organophosphorus group were detected (Dimethoate and Chloropyrifos). 4% of Khartoum bahri samples contained the two pesticides, while Khartoum and Omdurman recorded 21% and 5.26% respectively. 92% of dimethoate positive samples from Khartoum Bahri area exceeded the maximum residue limits, while Khartoum and Omdurman showed the same percentage 84.2%.
