Improvement of Production Process Using CPPB-IRT and WISE Standards in the Tofu Industry: A Case Study
Bambang Suhardi, Dina Nurfitri Rahma, Irwan Iftadi
Abstract       pdf Full text PDF

Tofu is one of the most consumed foods because of its delicious taste, low price and high protein content. The tofu industry in Indonesia has experienced a relatively rapid increase both on a small, medium and large scale. However, the production process is still carried out traditionally involving many tools and materials and is feared to cause food contamination that can endanger health. The quality of a product can be maintained if the manufacturer has a system that ensures the product meets the standards set. In addition, every food industry is required to have a Home Industry Food Production Certificate (SPP-IRT). To obtain SPPIRT, several aspects are assessed by the CPPB standard regulated by BPOM. This study aims to evaluate the implementation of CPPB-IRT using the CPPB-WISE standard and provide suggestions for improvement. The results showed there are 14 CPPB-WISE criteria, and the suitability of the implementation of CPPB-WISE in the Tofu industry was 58%.shows the need for improvement in the production process to comply with the established standards. Priority improvements are carried out using the brainstorming method to obtain improvement priorities on four criteria: storage, employee health and hygiene, equipment cleanliness and production area. Improvements include implementing a 5S work culture, poster making and preparing Standard Operating Procedures (SOP). Evaluation and proposed improvements can help the Tofu industry improve the production process and working conditions.

An Analysis of the Mediating Role of Universities in the Achievement of Industrialization in Selected Universities in Kenya
Abstract       pdf Full text PDF

Globally, university partnerships and collaborations have been identified as key pillars in technology transfer which translates to development outcomes for society. Kenyan universities have been facing many challenges especially low financing and high enrolment which have affected their roles in as far as development of technology is concerned. Through the Kenya Vision 2030 strategy and the Big Four Agenda, there has been intensified efforts to strengthen university linkages with firms/industries with the aim of achieving industrialization. In this study descriptive survey design with a multiple case analysis approach was used to analyze the mediating role of universities in achievement of industrialization in Kenya. The specific objectives of the study were: to determine the extent of technology transfer from universities to industries in Kenya, to establish the causal relationship between universities and Industries in Kenya and to find out the hindrances to the linkage between universities and Industries in Kenya. Both qualitative and quantitative data was collected. The respondents of the study were purposively selected due to the unique nature of the study. This study established that both public and private universities in Kenya are the main source of technology transfer to firms, even though the products/services are not visible in the market. The study further revealed that there was no causal relationship between universities and firms/industries in Kenya implying that technology transfer was one way. Finally this study identified several hindrances to linkages between universities and firms/industries which include: over-reliance on imported products/services, poor education systems and competing interests between universities and firms/industries. Policy recommendations include institutionalized linkages between universities and firms/industries, promotion of multidisciplinary approach to learning and research and a complementary relationship between universities and firms/industries rather than competition.

Timber Theft: Environmental and Economic Threat to Nigeria: A Review Paper
Oyediji olubukola tolulope, Adenika O.A
Abstract       pdf Full text PDF

Nigeria has in abundance rich forest resources but as the years passes it has suffered from large scale deforestation due to over-population and higher demand for wood/ wood products. Harvesting of timber without the permission of the owner or not paying for timber that was harvested with the permission of the owner puts humans/animals at risk of having a quality life; we put at stake the stability of climate, and endanger the existence of other species. This paper review examined and evaluated the various causes of timber theft, adverse effect of timber theft on the environment and economic atmosphere of the forest, constraints to reducing timber theft and ascertained perceived ways forward to reduce timber theft. While corruption, poverty and poor agricultural practices are some of the causes of timber theft, government weakness in parts or in entirety (that is, conflicts and war), failure of institutional controls, and absence of accountability by public officials are some of the motives for timber theft. Failure to assign a proper value to forests predisposes it to being cleared especially when regarded as a public good. Insufficient manpower, absence of equipment/lack of capacity building, government preferences and much importance on revenue generation as against the conservation of biodiversity are some of the challenges faced by forest reserve protection bodies. This paper recommends that forestry department should embark on community based forest management system, necessary financial support should be provided for the forestry officials by government in other to allow them carry out their work at the appointed time and effectively.

The Catalyst for Sustainable Rural Development and Poverty Reduction in Zambia
Mr Farai Mashoko, Dr. Ibrahim Olanya Bwalya, Prof Ronald Kaulule
Abstract       pdf Full text PDF

Rural development is more than ever before linked to entrepreneurship. Now a day’s Institutions and individuals promoting rural development see entrepreneurship as a strategic development interference that could speed up the rural development progression. However, entrepreneurship stands as a vehicle to improve the quality of life for individuals, families and communities to sustain a healthy economy and environment. The entrepreneurial point of reference to rural development accepts entrepreneurship as the central force of economic growth and development, without it other factors of development will be wasted. The acceptance of entrepreneurship as a central development force by itself will not lead to rural development and the advancement of rural enterprises. There is an urgent need to enable environment entrepreneurship in rural areas, Gómez-Araujo, E. J. (2012). The existence of such an environment depends on policies promoting rural entrepreneurship. The efficiency of such policies in turn depends on an intangible structure about entrepreneurship, i.e., what it is and where it comes from.

Marningsih Sadik, Abidin Pammu, Nasmilah
Abstract       pdf Full text PDF

The objective of this study is to uncover the emerging insignificant role of language mindset on language achievement of tertiary learners at one of the leading institutions in South Sulawesi Indonesia. It is becoming prevalent that mindset can be a bias originated from individuals surroundings; which would be pointless without being accompanied with continued and productive actions to support the attainment of learning goal. A total of 44 participants of EFL learners of batch 2021 from English Department of Hasanuddin University participated in this study. They were considered eligible for the assessment using Language Mindsets Inventory (LMI) and TOEFL ITP score. This study employed mix-method to find out the potential relations between the two assessed variables by gathering data from the learners during the semester. The result showed that language mindset and language achievement were negatively correlated of -0.377 indicating that language mindset played insignificant roles in promoting language learning outcomes. The finding confirms that this negative correlation was due to the absence of relevant prolonged actions to expect the learning results. In addition, the mindset they had were mostly influenced by their surroundings which were not genuinely invested to their real life. This finding can shed the light of further study regarding the long-year proven significant role of language mindset towards language achievement. The study bears an important pedagogical implication for tertiary lecturers to encourage and strengthen the students mindset to improve their learning.

Prof. Gideon C. Mwanza, Prof Edward Nakasala, Prof Julius Siwale, Gideon Mwanza, Mary Mwanza, Ms Doreen Mushele
Abstract       pdf Full text PDF

This study was done at Kafue District Hospital to determine the factors affecting the utilization of the nursing care plan by nurses. The research necessitated by the fact that despite the knowledge that the nurses gain on the nursing care plan through basic nursing training, workshops, in-service training and experience, the problem of underutilization of this tool still continue to exist. A nursing care plan is a very essential tool in the delivery of quality care in the health institution. However, its utilization has not reached desirable level in many countries, Zambia inclusive. Therefore, understanding the factors that influence the utilization of the nursing care plan will help realize the areas that require re-enforcement in order to reach the required standard of nursing care. The literature reviewed on the nursing care plan revealed that only few studies have been done on the utilization of the nursing care plan especially on the regional and national perspective. Local studies done indicated that nursing care plan was underutilized and that the overall quality of nursing care was affected by a number of factors such as lack of hospital policy, ineffective in-service policy, ineffective in-service training, and lack of encouragement from the supervisors and shortage of staff among others. The study design was descriptive cross section which used both quantitative and qualitative method with its study site being Kafue District Hospital in Kafue district. Convenience sampling procedure was used on all nurses who were found working on duty. Structured questionnaire was used to collect quantitative and qualitative data from 66 respondents which were analyzed by using SPSS 16.0 version. The respondent's cooperation with the research team was very helpful and much appreciated. Majority of the respondents (80%, 53) received inadequate training on nursing care plan while (20%, 13) of the respondents had adequate training. The findings from this study indicate that there is low utilization of the nursing care plan at Kafue district hospital. The study shows that (100%) of the nurses at KDH had heard about the nursing care plan. The study also revealed that most of respondents (80%) received inadequate training on nursing care plan and most of the respondents (79%, 52) had positive attitude towards the utilization of the nursing care plan. However, despite having high level of knowledge, adequate training and positive attitude towards the nursing care plan the study showed that the utilization of the nursing care plan by nurses at Kafue District Hospital (KDH) was low, thus low utilization was 83%. Recommendations will be made to Kafue District Hospital management, which will lead to notable progress in improving the utilization of the nursing care plan at the hospital thereby improving the quality of individualized patient care at the Hospital. In short, the most likely benefits of using the nursing care plan are that there will be improvements in patient care, improved patient satisfaction, and better patient feedback. The patient's hospital stay will be shortened allowing them to continue with life. The hospital and the nursing profession will enjoy a good name. Factors identified to affect utilization in this study were; motivation, attitude, staffing levels and supervision From the stated findings the following recommendations were made; Kafue District Hospital and Kafue District Health Office (KDHO) management to ensure Nursing care plan (NCP) tools always in stock in all wards and ensure good staffing levels, the General Nursing council to follow up staff development in skills training like the Nursing care plan and the Ministry of Health to conduct a research on the utilization of the nursing care plan on a wider scale to enable generalization of the findings.
