Bacolod City, Philippines

The University of Negros Occidental – Recoletos , is a private, Roman Catholic university founded on 1941 in Bacolod, Negros Occidental, Philippines and administered by the Order of Augustinian Recollects.The University was granted "autonomous status" by the Commission on Higher Education for five years while its College of Arts and science was granted Level III accreditation by the Philippine Accrediting Association of Schools, Colleges and Universities . CHED also granted the university’s College of Engineering and College of Information Technology the distinction as Centers of Development and Excellence in their Electrical Engineering and Information Technology courses respectively.

Leaking underground petroleum storage poses human and environmental health risks as it contaminates the soil and the groundwater. Of the many contaminants, benzene – a major constituent of gasoline, is of primary concern. It is an identified carcinogen with a permissible limit set at a low level of 0.005 mg L−1. This poses technical and regulatory challenge to remediation of contaminated sites. Various specialized treatment methods are available, but despite of the high removal efficiencies of sophisticated treatments, the residual level still poses health risks. Thus, additional alternative ways that are cost effective and require minimum technical expertise are necessary, and a constructed wetland (CW) is a potential alternative. This study evaluates the performance of a surface flow type CW for the removal of benzene from the contaminated water. It further determines the efficacy of a common reed plant Phragmites karka in treating benzene. Planted and unplanted CW were acclimated with benzene for 16 wk and tested for an 8-d hydraulic retention time at benzene levels of 66 and 45 mg L−1. Results indicate that the planted CW performed better and gave reliable and stable results. © 2016 Chinese Institute of Environmental Engineering, Taiwan

This study explored the state of psychological well-being and academic optimism in relation to university tasks among one hundred sixty-nine (169) professors in selected UAE universities, utilizing mixed quantitative and qualitative research approaches. The quantitative aspect primarily employed descriptive correlation method which used quantifiable data through survey instruments on psychological well-being, academic optimism, and university tasks. The qualitative analysis was used, through a focused group discussion among nineteen (19) key informants. Six (6) areas of psychological well- being: Autonomy, environmental mastery, personal growth, positive relations, purpose in life, and self- Acceptance were measured through the Ryff s Scales of Psychological Well-Being. Academic optimism scale measured three (3) subscales: Efficacy, trust, and academic emphasis. University tasks were categorized into three (3) major areas: student centered work, professional development work, and community centered work. The moderator variables considered were age, gender, length of teaching experience, length of experience in the UAE, and area of specialization. The results showed that the participants tend towards high scores in the subscales of autonomy, self-acceptance, and purpose in life. The academic optimism scale showed prominent high scores in efficacy and trust. Among the university tasks, student-centered work was the most fulfilled. Using the focused-group discussion, most expat university professors lament on the lack of time, management support, and lack of funding to pursue professional development, particularly research and publication. The regression analysis showed that there is a significant correlation between psychological well-being and academic optimism. Both psychological well-being and academic optimism predicts fulfillment of university tasks.

Aims: The present study aimed at molecular identification of putative Cof-like hydrolase associated with dehalogenase gene from a bacterium that was isolated from a contaminated sea-side area in the Philippines. The bacterium was subjected to 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis for identity of the genus and species. Methodology and results: Based on basic microbiological analysis and 16S rRNA sequence determination, strain MN1 showed high sequence identity to Enterobacter cloacae. This is the first reported study that Enterobacter could degrade 2,2-dichloropropionate (2,2-DCP). A putative dehalogenase gene like was identified by direct sequencing and analysis of the PCR-amplified genomic DNA of the bacterium. A comparative analysis of the sequence data revealed that the amino acid sequence is closely related to several Cof-like hydrolase associated with L-specific dehalogenases. Conclusion, significance and impact of study: Current study may suggest that the hydrolase may have similar function to dehalogenase. However, further analysis like enzyme assay need to be carried out to confirm this. Putative dehalogenase gene can be amplified using PCR technique provided that the specific primers designed were used.
