Researchers in higher education are beginning to explore the potential of data mining in analyzing data for the purpose of giving quality service and needs of their graduates. Thus, educational data mining emerges as one tools to study academic data to identify patterns and help for decision making affecting the education. This paper predicts the employability of IT graduates using nine variables. First, different classification algorithms in data mining were tested making logistic regression with accuracy of 78.4 is implemented. Based on logistic regression analysis, three academic variables directly affect; IT-Core, IT-Professional and Gender identified as significant predictors for employability. The data were collected based on the five year profiles of 515 students randomly selected at the placement office tracer study. © 2016 IEEE.

A Compact Planar Magnetron Plasma Sputtering Deposition Device (CPM-PSDD) has been used to deposit TiO2 on silicon, glass and cotton cloth. An 80 mm diameter Ti target was placed at the cathode and was sputtered by argon-oxygen plasma with 10-20 mA discharge current and -300 V to -450 V discharge potential. Reactive oxygen gas fed into the system at 13:1 Ar:O2 seem ratio for the deposition durations between one to four hours. The deposited films exhibited both anatase and rutile phases. Cotton cloths were dipped in methyl blue to evaluate the photocatalytic activity of the film. © 2013 Materials Research Society.

Epifanio de los Santos Avenue (EDSA) is one of the busiest national road in the Philippines millions vehicle are passing thru it every day especially in rush hour. Implementing Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) along this high way will provide a big help to every Filipino. This paper applied Artificial Intelligent (AI) and Artificial Neural Networks (ANN) to find the corresponding bus schedule depend on the parameters input value. The input parameters are Passenger volume embed (PVe), Passenger volume dispatch (PVd), Traffic congestion (Tc), Distance and Time. ANN will train with the different combination of these parameters value each combination has its corresponding schedule output. Simulation output are 00 means the station is not possible, 01 means the station is passable, 10 means that station needs an express schedule and 11 means the bus is need to reroute because of a high traffic congestion. This research will be very useful in providing ITS along EDSA using artificial intelligence and neural networks. © 2015 IEEE.

This study is a descriptive cross-sectional analysis of the concentration of lead of the waters in the Angat River Network in Bustos, Bulacan. Through the use of Flame Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer, it was established that the overall mean Lead concentration in the river is found to be 0.3037 ppm (mean standard error of 0.0018). The World Health Organization in 2010 set the legal limit for lead at 0.01 ppm. The river water is 30 times higher than the legal limit. Furthermore, results of the one-way ANOVA revealed that the mean Lead concentrations significantly differ across the different barangay sampling location with a p-value of <0.0001. However, the mean Lead concentrations of water samples stratified according to levels of water sampling and river points where the samplings were done are almost the same. © 2015, Sphinx Knowledge House.

The atmosphere is the layer of gases surrounding our planet. It is vital in sustaining life. A clear and clean sky appears blue to our naked eye. Dust, smoke, pollen, tiny droplets of water and other particles which float in the air make the sky appear hazy. This introduction into the atmosphere of chemicals, particulate matter, or biological materials is called air pollution. It harms the environment and is a major contributor to respiratory ailments, skin cancer, ozone depletion and global warming. Since the earth's atmosphere is a common resource which communities and nations share, it's quality has become a national, regional or even global concern. The atmosphere has certain measurable optical property which can be studied and analyzed. Light particles or photons with varying wavelengths coming in from outer space interact with the atmosphere as they pass through towards the surface of the earth. Particles and molecules in the air reflect, absorb or scatter photons. Photons which are not reflected, scattered or absorbed, travel or diffuse through the atmosphere and reach the surface of the earth to be utilized by humans, plants for photosynthesis and solar cells for the production of renewable energy. These photons are measured by this research's photon diffusion analyzer. Photon data is processed by a computer program. The photon analyzer, application software and the A+ Humanoid operating system used in the research were crafted by the proponent and researcher of this study. This study was able to accurately measure the amount of light particles or photons reaching any specific location. It was determined that the level of photons is inversely proportional to the level of air pollution and directly proportional to the air quality of the particular area. Photon measurements were done initially in three locations, City of Manila, Caloocan City and the vicinity of BSU Bustos Campus. The results were then analyzed and compared to weather satellite's atmospheric data for confirmation. © 2012 OSA.

The complex concepts and vocabulary of biology classes discourage many students. In this study, a pretest-posttest model was used to test the effectiveness of an educational card game in reinforcing biological concepts in comparison with traditional teaching methods. The subjects of this study were two biology classes at Bulacan State University-Sarmiento Campus. Both classes received conventional instruction; however, the experimental group's instruction was supplemented with the card game, while the control group's instruction was reinforced with traditional exercises and assignments. The score increases from pretest to posttest showed that both methods effectively reinforced biological concepts, but a t test showed that the card game is more effective than traditional teaching methods. Additionally, students from the experimental group evaluated the card game using five criteria: goals, design, organization, playability, and usefulness. The students rated the material very satisfactory. © 2014 A. F. Gutierrez.

The principle of Value Engineering is applied to make an innovative product that can help the public and the environment. Value Engineering is a technique in which the value of a system’s output is optimized by improving the function or reducing the cost. Innovation is the application or creation of new product to satisfy new requirements and market needs. Wood has been an important construction material since humans began building shelters. It has always been used extensively for furniture, such as chairs, tables and beds. But there will come a time that the consumption of woods is more than the amount of trees that are growing back. For these purpose a composite board that can be an alternative to wood using waste to reduce the need to consume natural resources is created. The coconut coir fibers, plastic resin, and hardener are used as the materials for the composite board. In order to come up with the product, the techniques including coir pounding and washing, mold waxing, molding, pressing, drying, and polishing were executed. Upon completion of the project, a naturally wood looking product is manufactured because of the coir strands which even made the product stronger than ordinary plywood. © Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2015.

This study is a descriptive cross-sectional analysis of the pH levels and the concentration of cadmium in the surface and ground waters in the Municipality of Bustos. Also it analyzed the cadmium content in selected species of aquatic life in Bustos, Bulacan. Through the use of the Suntex Portable pH meter (Model TS-2) from the Bulacan State University Bustos Campus, it was established that the pH levels of the surface water from Angat River Network in Bustos, Bulacan and ground water from selected barangays in the Municipality of Bustos are all within the accepted level which is pegged at 7. Through the use of Flame Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer, it was established that that the cadmium concentration of the surface and ground water is within the allowable limits (WHO standard of 0.005 ppm (5ppb) for Cd, 2010). Also it was established that cadmium concentrations in the head, meat, bone, tail and intestines of Leiopotherapon plumbeus or Lukaok, Glossogobius giuris or Biya, Oreochromis niloticus or Tilapia, Misgurnus fossils or Bulig, Cyprinus carpio or Carpa, and Macrobrachium rosenbergo or Prawn are within the allowable limits set by WHO. To wit, 0.005 ppm (5 ppb) for cadmium respectively. © 2015, Sphinx Knowledge House. All rights reserved.
