The Effect of Pedagogical Competence and Creativity of Teaching Mathematics Teachers on Students Creative Thinking Abilities
Anggia Pusparona, Nizlel Huda, Zurweni

Abstract: This study aims to describe the competence of pedagogy, the creativity of mathematics teachers in teaching, and their influence on students creative thinking abilities. This research uses a quantitative approach involving 6 mathematics teachers and 40 students. Based on the data and discussion above it can be concluded that the pedagogical competence of teachers is dominated by the group with the category of medium as much as 65.6%, the creativity of mathematics teachers in teaching is dominated by the group with the moderate category as much as 83.3% and the creative thinking abilities of students are at the low category, which is as much as 47.5%. Based on the results of the T-test it appears that, obtained sig. for the influence of teacher pedagogical competence (X2) is 0.081. The value> 0.05, it means that pedagogical competence does not significantly affect students creative thinking abilities. The value of sig, for teacher creativity on students creative thinking abilities, is equal to 0,000 <0.05, which means that mathematics teacher creativity in teaching has a significant effect on students creative thinking abilities.

The Effect of Mathematics Distance Learning by Google Classroom against Self Efficacy and Critical Mathematical Thinking Skills
Megawati, Damris , Kamid

Abstract: This study aims to look at the effect of the implementation of distance learning mathematics using the Google classroom application on self-efficacy and mathematical critical thinking skills. This study uses a quantitative approach that focuses on one group that is given special treatment in the form of mathematics learning using the Google Classroom application. The sample used in this study was students at the Senior High School level, totaling 62 students. The research was carried out during February-April 2020 at Muaro Jambi Public High School. Based on the results of the statistical tests above, it appears that mathematics learning using the Google classroom application affects the self-efficacy and critical thinking skills of students. If self-efficacy and mathematical critical thinking skills are understood as one element of learning outcomes, then mathematics learning using the Google classroom application can also be said to affect student learning outcomes. Thus it can clearly be said that learning mathematics using the Google classroom application can be used as alternative learning during the COVID-19 pandemic.

School Based Dengue Control Programme; Impact of awareness and training on control measures
S.M Arnold

Abstract: School children are a captive population, where positive practices can be cultured in them easily. If the school children are made knowledgeable about the disease and the control methods available the students tend to keep their school and domestic environment clean and dengue free. They act as messengers to carry the message of dengue prevention to the community, thereby actively participate in dengue control and prevention. This research was conducted with the aim of assessing the effect of the School based dengue control programme facilitated with awareness and training in improving the dengue control activities of school children.

Characterization of Rheological Behavior of Non-Newtonian Oil Well Drilling Muds at Low Shear Rates
Dr. Shallal N. Mahdi

Abstract: Non –Newtonian Drilling muds are liquid fluids, made practically from some sort of chemically active, mica like hydrated sedimentary clays of origin from the Cretaceous age, called Sodium Montmorillonite, which may mix with other additives to form oil well drilling muds. Oil well drilling muds are slim suspension systems, used to hold and lift drilling bit excavated soil and rock cuttings up wellbore from down hole to surface separation and treating systems. Those flaky suspensions can generate groups and or series of chemical structures once mixed with water. These structures will be strong and firm according to the concentration of the components of the suspension, also, to the rest or static conditions which can be measured by a particular rotary sensing apparatuses, called rheometrs.

Analysis of the economic potential of Beach tourism based on the total economic value and spatial interaction with the gravity model method
S Subiyanto

Abstract: Indonesia has made tourism as one of the economic sectors urgent. As an important economic sector, tourism is getting attention serious from the government. Research to determine the economic potential of coastal tourism objects in Pemalang Regency is very necessary to determine priorities and development strategies. The tourist attractions of Widuri and Blendung Beach have beautiful stretches of beach, white sand, clear sea water and interesting underwater biota to see. The potential of these two tourist objects is very good seen from the development of the number of tourist visits that continue to increase. The potential of coastal tourism objects is determined by the total economic value (TV) approach. Tev is calculated by summing the Direct Use Value (DUV) calculated from the Travel Cost Method (TCM) and the Excistence Value (EV) calculated from the Contingent Valuation Method (CVM) data. To find out the demand or supply model, the spatial interaction value of the number of tourist visits is calculated using the Gravity Model approach. TCM respondents are visitors to the area, while CVM respondents are people who use the coastal area such as traders and workers around the area. The sampling technique used is the Non Probability Sampling method. All respondent data have been tested statistically, namely normality, autocorrelation, heteroscedasticity, multicollinearity, validity and reliability. The processing method used is multiple linear regression analysis and the calculation uses Maple 17. The calculation result of the TV value for Widuri Beach is Rp. 35.850.465.345 and Blendung Beach TV Rp. 2.942.445.089. The results of spatial interaction with the Gravity Model indicate that the tourism demand model and the highest spatial interaction are at Widuri Beach. Based on the value of TEV and Spatial Interaction, it shows that Widuri Beach has a better function.

POTENTIAL FOR DEVELOPMENT OF RICE FISH CULTIVATION AS AN EFFORT TO INCREASE FARMERS INCOME AND SUSTAINABLE AGRICULTURE
Luh Putu Kirana Pratiwi, Nyoman Yudiarini

Abstract: The existence of subak as an institutional that is socio-agriculture-religious began to be threatened due to the degradation of urban agricultural land which is increasing every year. Therefore, the Denpasar City Government has designed the establishment of a Subak Lestari Zone to create a sustainable food agriculture land. This study aims: (1) To analyze differences in rice farming income after the development of fish rice; (2) To identify alternative strategies that are effectively developed in fish farming for sustainable agriculture in urban areas. The analytical method in this study was carried out quantitatively namely feasibility analysis and qualitatively through SWOT analysis. The results showed that the rice mina farming has a higher feasibility compared to the previous rice farming. Net income from rice mina is IDR 7,165,250 (35.29%), with an R / C ratio of 2.97. The alternative strategies developed are the SO (Strength Opportunities) Strategy by: (a) Increasing production and quality according to market demand, (b) Establishing market institutions, (c). Implement environmentally friendly cultivation and handling of product yields, (d) Organism Control Integrated Control as early as possible in accordance with economic threshold, and (e) Development of Human Resources quality skills.

Isiakpu, N.S.; Dr Ukwuoma, G.A.; Okpo, Eme; Okpo, N.O.

Abstract: Diabetes mellitus is a major public health problem and one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Ocular complications of diabetes affect every part of the eye, as well as visual functions. The infections of the external eye account for a significant percentage of ocular inflammation, some of which lead to visual loss as a result of corneal involvement. The purpose of this study was to ascertain the Ocular Microbes among Diabetics attending Federal Medical Centre Ebute Metta, Lagos State. The study was a clinic based prospective study carried out on 105 participants. Ocular examinations of the external and internal structures of the participants were performed. Visual acuity was taken using Snellens Visual Acuity Chart. Sterile Cotton Tipped swab was used to swab the conjunctiva and cul-de-sac of each participant. Gram Stain of the isolates from the culture was done to characterize and classify the isolated microbes. Presumptive isolates were stored on slants and biochemical tests were carried out on them for further characterization and identification. The major eye infections among the participants in this study comprised of conjunctivitis 21(38.18%) and stye 12(21.82%) in the experimental group and 24(48.2%) and 12(24.0%) in the control group respectively. Staphylococcus aureus [experimental 31 (56.4%) and control groups 28 (56.0%)] was the most ocular microbes isolated followed by Streptococcus pyogenes [experimental 11 (20.0 %) and control groups 14 (28.0)]. There is no significant relationship between common ocular microbes and eye infections in diabetics in this study. This is shown in the correlation r = – 0.013 at 0.927 level of significance which is greater than 0.05 (r = –0.03 at 0.927, P > 0.05). Ocular microbes in diabetics with eye infections are the same in diabetics without eye infections. Most ocular infections can be caused by the normal flora of the eyes when host immunity is compromised. Hyperglycemia do not predispose di
