Abstract :

Young grass of Triticum aestivum is also called as wheat grass. Wheat grass is one of the important crop that provides nutrients to human body. This wheat grass is also called as “Green blood”. It contains minerals, amino acids, vitamins and high content of chlorophyll. Wheat grass contains different phytochemicals such as alkaloid, flavonoid, phenol, tannin, glycosides etc. This review based on study of phenolic content in wheat grass extract by qualitative and quantitative analysis. The extraction is done by using two methods and with help of methanol solvent. This review also includes study of comparison of two methods in order to know best efficient method.

Abstract :

The maqashid sharia consists of five aspects of islamic law, namely maintaining religion, maintaining the soul, maintaining reason, guarding offspring and protecting property. These five principles of maqashid sharia will be proxied by internal control, accountability and transparency. Internal control is a way for an entity or organization to safeguard its assets, this is clearly in accordance with the fifth point of maqashid sharia namely Hifdz Al-Maal or maintaining property. For this reason, internal control is one of the proxies of Maqashid Syariah. The next proxy is accountability and transparency. Accountability and transparency can be interpreted with responsibility and honesty, this is clearly in accordance with the main purpose of the second maqashid sharia, Hifdz An-Nafs or maintaining the soul. The main purpose of the first maqashid, Hifdz Ad-Din or maintaining religion, can also be attributed to accountability and transparency. This study examines the effect of internal control, accountability and transparency against trust and participation of mosque worshipers.

This study uses a quantitative approach. The quantitative approach is used to analyze and examine the influence of internal control, accountability and transparency against trust and participation of mosque worshipers or jamaah. The quantitative analysis used in this study consisted of descriptive analysis to see an overview of population characteristics and path analysis. Path analysis is used to test hypotheses using Structural Equation Modeling (SEM). The population in this study were jamaah from all major mosques located in Lumajang Regency, Jember Regency, Situbondo Regency, Bondowoso Regency and Banyuwangi Regency, East Java. In this study the unit of analysis amounted to 125 jamaah from five large mosque located in the District. The sampling technique in this study uses the quota sampling method.

Based on the results of the analysis of the study shows that the influence of internal control over the trust of jamaah is not significant. The effect of accountability on the trust of jamaah is insignificant. The influence of transparency on the trust of jamaah is significant. The influence of internal control on the participation of jamaah is not significant. The influence of accountability on the participation of jamaah is significant and lastly, the effect of transparency on the participation of jamaah is insignificant.

Abstract :

English teachers teaching in rural areas often face the non-availability of required technical support and relevant atmosphere to teach English effectively. As a result of the incompetent conditions, many studies have been conducted to exploit the unique components of songs to motivate the rural learners to learn English. However, a study to investigate the rural pupils in Kanowit, Sarawak toward the use of songs has not been located. Therefore, this study investigates Kanowit primary school pupils' attitudes towards English and investigate whether songs help to motivate rural pupils in Kanowit to learn English. A total 60 respondents, age between 10-12 years old took part in this preliminary study. Data was collected via a questionnaire survey . A survey questionnaire adapted from Gardner's (1985) Attitude and Motivation Test Battery (AMTB) was employed in this study. The findings suggest that students are highly motivated, have positive attitudes towards learning English and are extrinsically motivated although it does not necessarily translate into favorable efforts in improving proficiency. Based on the findings some suggestions and recommendations for teachers have been highlighted.

Abstract :

Neuromuscular diseases such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) progressively decrease voluntary motor function, gradually causing communication difficulties. Despite disease progression, a transparent communication board can be used for an extended period as one of the means of communication. It is a transparent plate on which characters including letters, numbers, and symbols are displayed, for caregivers to read intentions of patients. Nonetheless, conventional transparent communication boards have the following problems: 1. the caregiver needs to position each character on the board so that the target character can be aligned linearly between the caregiver's eyes and the patient's eyes; 2. caregivers need to memorize or record words and sentences, because intentions of a patient are read on a character basis; and 3. the arrangement of characters on the board is fixed. The objective of this study was to develop an electronic transparent communication board (device) to solve the problems of conventional transparent communication boards and evaluate and verify its effect. The device included two tablets that were connected with each other via Wi-Fi so that the caregiver could confirm the voluntary movements of the patient by the video images taken by the attached cameras and enter the characters on the screen. Among the three problems of the conventional transparent communication board, the adjustment of the location of the transparent communication board seemed to become easier, because the device can be operated without aligning the visual line of the caregiver with that of the patient. It took longer to operate the prepared device than the conventional transparent communication board, but it is expected that the negative impacts caused by the delays can be reduced, if the communication speed and tablet performance are improved. Characters were considered to become entered more easily with the prepared system than with the approaches depending on memories and notes.

Abstract :

Our research aims at addressing the needs of developing data analysis about communication in respect to care seeking and primary care, discovering how health expressions evolve along the personal growth and learning process, and how to solve the needs identified in respect to developing measuring the quality of life. We provide an overview of the development of a new research methodology exploiting machine learning for analyzing patient experience expressions to support personalized care and managing in everyday life. Our research relies on an online questionnaire in which the representatives of various population groups perform interpretation tasks. Dependencies between answers about the interpretation tasks and background information are analyzed with machine learning methods. The research creates new ways to interpret and address the meanings of language usage of different groups of patients and impaired carefully and distinctively as a part of everyday life and care events.
