Abstract :

One of the most important keys/factors that affect the project implementation and cause a loses and fail is (Risk Factor), hence, the project risk and procurement management is about how to plan, act, monitor and control the expected project risk. The nature of risk involves an element of uncertainty because of the need to consider hypothetical future events. The event may or may not happen, after the global financial crisis, and the unexpected factors that happened in that period, global organizations / companies started focusing on the risk management, so, it is important to any organization/company to set-up a strategy to manage the project risk and plan for risk responses; each risk probability and impact should be determined and measured first. There is a different level of risks; therefore, several ways to response are available; in other word; managing the risk is linked with the natural and degree of risk and the organization risk attitude. Planning in advance for project risk will assist the project manager to ensure the successful of project in term of time, cost, scope, quality and resources, etc. and this key will help the organizations in making Go or No Go decisions, the decision that will be taken based on advance plan will definitely release the pressure from the project team and improve the work performance; Finally, Global organizations, which include the teamwork or partners from different nationalities must have a clear context for risk communications, it is also necessary to define the roles and responsibilities by allocating risk owners, who know what to do if the threats become true.

Abstract :

Today, the majority of people have become completely dependent on mobileapplications. These applications could be a gateway to sensitive data that attract more hackers. The Android penetration testing process helps to address security weaknesses or vulnerabilities in the Android platform. In this paper, we present different penetration tests (or pentests) for Android-based mobile applications in a very comprehensive manner. First, we explain how to set up a pentesting environment, including hardware/software requirements, USB debugging, and configuring a proxy.Next, weperform some of the most popular pen testing tools such as AFLogical, Dex2jar, JD-GUI, Apktool and Drozer by using Santoku Linux distribution. Finally, we conduct an Android repackaging attack on selected apps byusing Santoku Linux distribution and then demonstrate the attack on our Android VM. This work attempts to give developers and security professionals a step-by-step guide for Android mobile application pen testing.

Abstract :

This study represents one of the earliest studies reporting biological properties (antimicrobial activity, acute toxicity, and phytochemical prospecting) of the aqueous extract of leaves of two plant species, Matayba elaeagnoides Radlk, and Allophylus edulis (A. St. Hilaire, Cambessedes & A. Jussieu) Radlk. ex Warm, both belonging to the Sapindaceae family. Phytochemical prospecting detected the presence of saponins and flavonoids in both species. The acute toxicity test with Artemia salina showed toxicity rates with LC50% of 100mg/mL for Matayba elaeagnoides. Interestingly, none of the extracts showed microbiological activity, using the diffusion disc method against Staphilococus aureus, Escherichia coli and Candida albicans.

Abstract :

Reading for comprehension is not a simple phenomenon, but a very complex process. Hence, the suitability of methods and strategies in teaching reading comprehension should fit into students’ needs. This study attempted to explore the usage of NUMB-MET amongst Year 6 pupils in answering reading comprehension questions as well as to investigate to what extent does NUMB-MET facilitate Year 6 pupils in enhancing their reading comprehension skills. Eight year six pupils one primary school in Bintulu, Sarawak were involved in this case study and the data were collected using document analysis, focus group interviews and field notes. The findings revealed that all the participants perceived that NUMB-MET as engaging, effective, served as language support in constructing sentences in English reading comprehension.  The findings of this study are hoped to provide insights to the educators on teaching students reading comprehension strategies which could help the students especially primary pupils in answering questions with lesser or minimal help from the teachers.

Abstract :

The research is carried out in one of the school in Sarawak and the number of the participants is 10. I am using Kurt Lewin’s model in conducting my action research. This study is inspired by my previous teaching experience where the pupils are having difficulties in learning present continuous tense. Hence, the purpose of this study is to help to improve student’s learning of present continuous tense by using creative charts. Besides, this study also helps me to find out how do creative charts affect the teacher teaching of present continuous tense. The participants used the creative charts as the medium in constructing present continuous sentences. Each column of the charts represents one word in each sentence. Thus it helps to enhance the participants’ learning of present continuous tense. The action taken to conduct the research is using one early observation and two cycles. The amendments are done to the strategy and creative charts in the second cycle where I break the auxiliary verb with the main verb to reduce confusion. I used 7 steps in Lewin’s model in conducting the cycles which are identifying the problem, fact finding, planning my strategy, take the first action step, evaluate the strategy and findings, make amendments and start the next cycle. Besides, I have gathered the data by collecting, observing, interviewing, and getting feedback from the participants. Through the collection of data, I analysed and interpreted the data according to the findings that I have. The data is integrated because it helps me to make connections between my findings. In my findings, the participants are showing positive improvement.

Abstract :

The construction industry is repeatedly criticised for being inefficient and very slow to innovate. The basic methods of construction techniques and technologies had changed little since Roman times. Design of man-made structures are more complex and critical than ever before, and they are getting no-simpler. Requirements are keep-on increasing. The reason is that the tendency of the human to compare the previous project with the future one. Other reasons for pushing the construction engineering off limits, include urbanisation, usage of newly developed materials together with software developments, which allow us to design these complex structures. The engineering techniques required for the designs are highly specific in nature and vary from design to design. When we look back throughout this industry’s history we can notice few great advancements have taken place. But every construction project is different, every site is a singular prototype, construction works are located in different places, and involve the constant movement of personnel and machinery. In addition, weather and other factors also prevent the application of previous experience effectively. So it is mandatory to have many advanced construction techniques in hand to use those things in the right place at the right time.

Abstract :

This paper presents a comparison of some neural network based approaches for analyzing satellite images. The motivation for this study comes from the potential use of such analysis for identification of slums from satellite images. Slums, also formally termed as informal settlements, can be identified from satellite images using image segmentation as well as object detection techniques. Policymakers often spend substantial time and resources to discover certain regions of interest. This paper presents a brief study and comparison of some known algorithms that can be helpful for classifying residential areas as developed and underdeveloped using satellite images as input. The approach can be further improved to identify the slums from satellite images. Such a process is then readily scalable and can reduce the time and resources spent by policymakers for this analysis. This can ultimately help policymakers in developing appropriate policies that lead to economic progress.
