Design of An Active element-based Class-J Power Amplifier for 5G Wireless Communication Applications

Abstract

This paper presents the analysis and design of an active element-based class-J Power Amplifier (PA). A proper PA needs to be designed to achieve the required power output over a bandwidth (BW) that supports the emerging 5G applications without sacrificing linearity. Among different modes of PAs, the class-J PA will be more suitable for linear and broadband applications. Therefore, a class-J PA design that operates at 5GHz (i.e., sub-6GHz 5G frequency band) with an active element-based approach using Silterra 130nm CMOS process technology to estimate its feasibility for integration without compromising on the performance is described in this paper. The simulation results show that the saturated power output (Psat) of 27dBm with a maximum value of 13.7dB power gain and power output at 1dB compression point (OP1dB) of 26.2dBm are obtained with a BW of approximately 500 MHz by supplying the PA with 5V to deliver into 50 Ω load. The PA’s layout with the estimated chip size of (9.5X15.5) um2 reveals its feasibility for the integration.

“Hulun Hyang” Farmer Group Asset Mapping Using Asset-Based Community Development Methode as an Ex-situ Edelweiss Flower Conservation in the Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park Area (Case Study: Edelweiss Park, Wonokitri Village)

Abstract

One of the endemic flora that has become an icon in the Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park (TNBTS) area is the Edelweiss Flower. The existence of tourism developments in the Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park (TNBTS) area makes the demand for Edelweiss flowers as souvenirs even more excellent. It affects the economic value of these commodities. It affects the population decline and threatens its availability for the Tengger indigenous people who use Edelweiss flowers as offerings that other components cannot replace. Since 2017, the Wonokitri Village community has collaborated with Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park (TNBTS) area to form the Hulun Hyang farmer group to conserve Edelweiss Flower ex-situ. The Hulun Hyang Farmer's Group has also obtained a breeding permit for Edelweiss Flowers from the Ministry of Environment and Forestry regarding wanawiyata widyakarya, which is realized through the development of the Edelweiss Park. It is essential to increase the capacity of managers in Edelweiss Park Development to ensure the sustainability of their activities. This development needs to be fostered endogenously through the active participation of each member of the Hulun Hyang Farmer Group to form a firmly rooted mechanism and responsive to existing local dynamics. In this case, the Asset Based Community Development (ABCD) approach is considered suitable to be applied as a methodology to map assets owned by the Hulun Hyang Farmer Group. ABCD accommodates seven mapped capitals: physical capital, financial capital, environmental capital, technological capital, human capital, social capital, and spiritual capital. This asset mapping is hoped that it can encourage members of the Hulun Hyang Farmer Group to find out detailed information on their capital, which can later be used as a basis for formulating programs to improve skills and collective understanding so that they can develop a sustainable Edelweiss Park agro-ecosystem independently

Paper Title: ESL Undergraduates’ Perceptions towards the Role of English Subtitles on Vocabulary Learning

Abstract

Vocabulary seems to be the aspect of language learning that educators often neglect. Vocabulary learning is crucial as it relates to all four language skills, namely writing, reading, speaking, and listening skills. Without a wide vocabulary knowledge, students might not be able to acquire English as their second language efficiently. One of the possible ways for English as a Second Language (ESL) students to enhance vocabulary is by watching movies or shows with English subtitles. There is quite a few previous research proving that ESL learners could acquire new vocabulary from watching subtitled movies, drama series, TV shows and many others. The present study attempts to investigate the perceptions of ESL undergraduates on watching English subtitled movies or shows. It also determines to identify the ESL undergraduates’ perceptions on learning vocabulary through watching English subtitled movies or shows. A total of 132 students participated in this research as respondents. The data was collected using an online adapted survey questionnaire. The results based on the descriptive analysis showed that most students had positive perceptions of learning vocabulary through watching English subtitled movies or shows. It is hoped that the overall findings of this study could benefit stakeholders in the ESL and English as a Foreign Language (EFL) field of study and promote the use of English subtitled movies or shows in the learning of vocabulary.

The study of Waste Rice Husk as a Novel Green Corrosion Inhibitor in Aluminum under 1M HCl solution

Abstract

This paper reports the Liquid Smoke (LS) of Rice Husks (RH) as a green corrosion inhibitor to protect aluminium at various concentrations using experimental work and modelling algorithm using Artificial Intelligence (AI). The LS inhibitor is the condensation product of the RH pyrolysis and is evaluated using Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS), Fourier-Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR), UV-Vis, and Scanning Electronic Microscopy (SEM). Logistic regression, support vector machine, and k-neighbours classifiers are utilized to predict the corrosion rate and amplified by ensemble machine learning to assert the prediction result. The calculated corrosion rate is 25.78×10-2 mpy at 80 ppm solution, which agrees with the inhibition efficiency of 95% at 298 K. The FTIR results show that LS comprises phenolic, cellulose, and hydroxyl and complex structure. These compounds are the critical factor to adsorb on the surface of aluminium substrate. The disappearance absorption bands of C=C and C=O show the inhibitor molecule’s adsorption on the aluminium surface, which correlates to π–π∗ and n–π∗ electronic transitions. The experimental surface treatment results are in good agreement with the EIS results to verify a protective and stable film on the surface of metals. On the other hand, the ML model gives 97% and 98% of accuracy and precision to showcase the formation of a passive layer on the metal surface. This work can be used as a guideline to demonstrate the performance of LS inhibitors to reduce the electrochemical activities and model the implementation of ML to assess the compatibility between the inhibitor and substrate.

FAILURE ANALYSIS OF EX-SPOOL 16” MOL: An insight of Machine Learning and Experimental Result

Abstract

The paper reports the development of a Risk-Based Inspection (RBI)-Machine Learning perspective to mitigate the future and unprecedented risk of API 5L Grade X42 subsea pipeline leakage. The investigation found that the pipe was internally coated with green-coloured material. The Optical Emission Spectrometry (OES), Tensile Test, Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM), Energy Dispersive X-Ray Spectroscopy (EDS) and X-Ray Diffraction (XRD) were used to analyze the root cause of the pipeline’s failure. Corrosion attack is seen at the cross-section microstructure based on SEM results. The chemical composition of Carbon, Manganese, Phosphorous, and Sulfur has dramatically lower than the standard API 5L Grade X42. Siderite and hematite dominate the composition of the corroded area as a result of CO2 dissolving in water. In contrast, hematite is generated due to the pipe and outdoor atmosphere reaction. Severe local wall thinning causes the degradation of the material’s mechanical properties and increases the corrosion rate. This result is amplified by the development of Machine Learning (ML) to estimate the corrosion rate of material. Flow acceleration, turbulence, chemical composition, hardness, and tensile test data are used as input data to predict the PoF. The corrosion rate and predicted PoF are the output data to mitigate future failure. Our result shows the prediction accuracy is 98%, with a lower percentage loss of approximately 0.052 and depicts the agreement between experimental and modelling results. This work can be used to reduce the analysis time, minimize human bias, and serve as a reliable reference mitigation plan to maintain the integrity of the subsea-pipelines based on Artificial Intelligent.

Relationship of Operating Segments (IFRS 8) and Profitability of Universal Banks in the Philippines

Abstract

The study explored the relationship between the operating segments (IFRS 8) and profitability of universal banks in the Philippines. Empirical data were collected from the published annual report or audited financial statements of the twelve universal banks from reporting period 2016 to 2019. The study utilized panel data regression analysis using univariate analysis of variance technique to measure the relationship between the reportable segments to return on asset (ROA) and earnings per share (EPS) of universal banks. The findings of the study revealed that only reportable segment revenue is significantly related to ROA. None of the reportable segment revenue, profit or loss, assets, and external revenue as result of overall test is significantly related to EPS. The results of the study showed that all operating segments, with average of four, are grouped according to the nature of products or services offered. The most disclosed segmental information are information about interest revenue & interest expense, depreciation and amortization, material non-cash items such as credit and impairment losses, income tax expense, measures of revenue, profit or loss, assets and liabilities, revenue from external customer and revenue from transactions with other operating segment of the same entity. Implications to business decisions were made.

Recent improvements in the longitudinal shear resistance in composite slabs: A review.

Abstract

Composite slabs made of profiled steel sheets with concrete topping are considered the most frequent floor solution in composite building construction. The key benefits of this structural system are thought to be the increased speed of construction, traditional replaceable shuttering removal, and reduction in the number of props needed. According to Eurocode 4, bending, longitudinal shear, and vertical shear resistances are considered the main parameters to define the composite slab capacity. In general, longitudinal shear resistance is considered the most conditioning parameter for composite slabs. Composite slabs are considered to have a substantial bending capacity due to the profiled steel sheet contribution. Therefore, longitudinal shear resistance must be improved to provide a high degree of connection, allowing the composite slabs to attain their full bending capacity. Over the past decades, many researchers have attempted to propose new methods to improve the longitudinal shear capacity. These improvements can be categorized into three categories. Improvements by proposing new types of concrete to increase the bending capacity of the concrete topping, improvements by proposing new types of end-anchorage, and enhancements by proposing shear connectors placed along the span of the composite slabs. In this paper, technical literature for the past few years for previous researchers who attempted to improve the longitudinal shear capacity will be presented and reviewed.

A STUDY OF ATTITUDE OF FACULTY TOWARDS IMPLEMENTATION OF TOTAL QUALITY MANAGEMENT PRACTICES IN THE MANAGEMENT EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTES.

Abstract

Defining quality in education is a massive challenge since it deals with the most sensitive creation on earth i.e. the human beings. Education is goal-oriented. Accordingly, quality of education should be seen with reference to excellence in education, value addition in education, fitness of educational outcome and experience for use, conformance of education output to planned goals, specifications and requirements, defect-avoidance in the education process, and meeting or exceeding customer’s expectations of education. Education quality leads to a prospective future. Hence, insight on quality indices and virtual implementation need to be given top priority and due attention should be paid to the category in the wide range of educational strata including educational institute, educational management, administration, staff, students and community. Worldwide, much research has been conducted in the field of TQM implementation in education. After a review of the relevant TQM literature, it has been found that different researchers adopted different TQM definitions and frameworks based on their own understanding of TQM and research objectives. Consequently, there are fewer agreements on what TQM is and what constitutes it in the sphere of education. Also, there is no comprehensive study covering different aspects of Total Quality Management in Education in India, more specifically. Accordingly, the present study is an endeavour to explore the implementation of Total Quality Management practices in the management educational institutes in the region.

Influence of Religiosity on Ethical Decision-Making Among Filipino Auditors in Public Practice

Abstract

Audit failures associated with the corporate scandals in the Philippines and some parts of the world have damaged the auditing profession's public image and confidence in its function. This paper determined the influence of religiosity on ethical decision-making among Filipino auditors (n=98) in public practice. The Dimensions of Religiosity Scale was used in measuring religious preoccupation, conviction, emotional involvement and guidance. Two audit scenarios were used to assess the respondents' ethical decision-making across its sequential components: ethical sensitivity, ethical judgment, ethical intention, and ethical behavior. Data were collected through an online survey and were analyzed using Pearson r. Findings showed that auditors' ethical decision-making, primarily their ethical behavior, is significantly influenced by religiosity, the guidance it gives to their lives and their emotional involvement to these beliefs. Ethical decision-making was also found to be contingent upon the nature of the moral issue involved. The theorized interrelationship among the sequential components of Rest's (1986) ethical decision-making model was also confirmed. These findings can be used by auditing companies in considering one’s religiosity in recruitment and convert it into a company’s competitive advantage to help redeem the public confidence towards the profession. Other relevant constructs that can influence ethical decision-making, such as spirituality and moral intensity of issues, can be further studied from the lens of other ethical decision-making frameworks.

LANGUAGE USE IN DISTANCE EDUCATION: BASIS FOR POLICY FORMULATION

Abstract

The impact of language policy and practice affirmed that language use in instruction has a significant role in the learners’ learning outcome. Therefore, an academic institution needs to have a strong foundation in managing language used to formulate a language policy for the whole institution. Using the mixed-method design where survey and interview were specifically used, the study sought to determine the language practices in the University before and during distance learning instruction, identify the language practices in the University and find out the ramifications of the language practices in the language acquisition and learning and language use which will eventually lead to the formulation of language policy. Findings revealed that faculty and students are aware of the language policy. However, the discrepancy in implementing the English Only Policy is observable. Most of the participants used Taglish in communication before and during the pandemic. Regarding the language policies, they sometimes comply with the English-only policy in technical and English-related courses. Sometimes, they use Filipino and Taglish in technical and English related courses. On the other hand, they seldom use other languages such as regional languages in the said courses. They moderately agree on the use of English as ramifications of the language practices. In contrast, they agree that English should be used in different everyday activities. Thus, more than half of them agree on the sole use of English in technical and English-related courses.

Subsidy and Organizational Performance Post COVID-19

Abstract

In order to help firms to achieve competitive advantage, the government in Malaysia has introduced many commercial subsidies. The purpose of this research is to explore existing government subsidies to find out the impact of Malaysian government subsidies on firm performance. This research focuses on whether the five commercial subsidies (tax incentives, government loans, training incentives, innovation support and digitalization grants) will have an impact on the performance of Malaysian firms. Serving as the pioneer study that looks into the impact of subsidies on organizational performance post COVID-19 lockdown, the results of this research can provide a good direction for Malaysian firms on which type of subsidies might help them improve their performance. The findings of this study found that Malaysian government subsidies have significant positive impact on firm performance. However, not all five government subsidies will affect firm performance. Out of the five government subsidies proposed in this study, only tax incentives and government loans have significant positive impacts on Malaysian firm performance.

DESIGN ANALYSIS OF HYDRO-FRACTURE WITH REFERENCE TO THE SANDSTONE POROUS MEDIA OF THE UPPER ASSAM BASIN

Abstract

Hydraulic fracturing is considered to be a cost-effective method of extracting hydrocarbons from low-permeability sandstone reservoirs. Proppant selection and placement, pump rate and viscosity, fracture geometry, and conductivity are all aspects to consider when planning a hydro-fracturing operation. Furthermore, the well depth, formation thickness, and presence of natural fractures are all important factors that influence the design of the hydro-frac intervention in oil well operations. The current work uses Carbo FracPro to investigate the hydro-fracture design, utilising various proppant types and hydro-fracturing fluids. Following that, FracPro analysis was carried out to select proppants and design hydraulic fracturing fluid with respect to the sandstone porous media of the Upper Assam basin. The proppant sands from Gujarat, India, were obtained for this study, and their physical qualities were evaluated using the ISO-13503-2 method, which specifies standard testing protocols for evaluating proppant physical attributes for use in hydraulic fracturing operations. Finally, this paper compares and analyses the results of induced hydro-frac using Carbo FracPro to evaluate fracture conductivity and formation permeability obtained with various fracturing fluids and proppant types in order to select the best-matched proppant to improve the flowability of the porous media under investigation. Keywords: Hydraulic Fracturing, Oil Well, Crude Oil, Proppant, Porous Media.

Neural Network-based Time Series Forecasting of HIV Epidemics: The Impact of Antiretroviral Therapies in the Philippines

Abstract

The HIV epidemic in the Philippines has been rapidly changing and expanding in the past ten years. From a low and slow to a fast and furious epidemic, the number of diagnosed HIV infections has increased dramatically to 32 cases a day. Thus, some modeling and forecasting methods are necessary for the country to predict the spread pattern and enforce mitigation measures. In this paper, the researcher uses Artificial Neural Network in time series forecasting to determine the impact of Antiretroviral Therapies (ART) in the Philippines. The datasets extracted from the HIV/AIDS and ART Registry of the Philippines for the period March 2009 – February 2022 (156 months) are carefully examined for forecasting and analysis. Findings revealed that the cumulative cases in the country by December 2030 will reach 256,983, showing an upward linear trend, with the highest peak in March 2025 of 4,225 cases. The observed and predicted values of HIV epidemics are somewhat close and similar, as supported by the lower values of its RMSE, MAE, and MAPE and higher coefficient of determination. Further, findings showed that as per the United Nations’ SDG-3 of Project 2030, the Philippines is still far from the goals for ending the HIV epidemic due to an increase in HIV incidence in the country. Thus, the Philippine government must continue to adopt the 90-90-90 UN targets and improve further its ART program.

Lived Experiences of Campus Director in a Philippine State University

Abstract

The 21st century has introduced new challenges to the educational managers brought about by the fast changing world. Educational managers in a Philippine State University had to perform their administrative tasks amidst some unwritten obligations. Thus, the objective of this study is to explore the lived experiences of campus directors as managers in a Philippine state university. This study utilized the qualitative-descriptive research design using a one-on-one interview. The participants of the study comprised of seven campus directors from the different campuses in the islands of Romblon. Using qualitative content analysis, three themes emerged. The first theme was “experience on becoming a campus director”. Most of the campus directors shared their experiences before assumption, their adjustment period, and learning the ropes of management. The second theme was “challenges in becoming a manager”. It showed that most of them dealt with their complex managerial roles, managing the employees, students, facilities and the stakeholders. The third theme was “self-concept as a manager”. The essence of being a campus director disclosed that management/leadership can be developed and expanded over time. It is recommended that skills and knowledge gained through preparation can be supplemented by on-going training and mentoring. Trainings, specifically leadership-training programs should include critical reflection activities, such as comparing previous experience with the new experiences, self-evaluating, and challenging old worldviews. Moreover, the campus directors should develop time management and conceptual skills to address their hectic administrative tasks. It requires them to provide time to focus on ideas and be able to see the big picture of what the organization wanted to attain. Further, to respond effectively to the transformation challenges that managers in higher education and elsewhere are faced with, new skills and leadership practices will have to be acquired. This will require the ability for continuous personal transformation and life-long learning. Keywords: lived experiences, campus directors, Philippine State University, Romblon State University

South China Sea Maritime Disputes and Malaysia International Integrative Relations as a Jihad Strategy in Balancing the World’s Authoritative Powers

Abstract

The Western International Relations (WIRs) studies have been lauded for centuries owing to idealism innovation with all sorts of 'ism' (realism, liberalism, structuralism, internationalism, modernism, and imperialism) by various schools of thought with massive volumes of political studies aimed at re-creating the global order. But, regretfully, these WIRs have severely disregarded the International Relations (IRs) legacy of Al-Andalus with 800 years of the political establishment in Spain. Al-Andalus was the reason for the American continent by Columbus right after it fell. Besides, it had inspired European Renaissance, and imperialism dreams revived political ideologies among the mixed heritage known as Graeco-Romanesque, Judeo-Arab (Shamsie 2016), but today, nothing except purely theological locus. This study attempt to analyse the International Relations IRs from industry weltanschauung based on the powerless nation case study. The analytical areal divided into sixth sub-topics: The critique over western IRs philosophy: The Integrative International Relations as holistic match: The Malaysia-China-US trade and bilateral relations: The South China Sea Economy and Biodiversity Worth: ASEAN as a Peacekeeper Guardian for the South China Sea (SCS) and South East Asia (SEA). The last section is about Malaysia's comprehensive bilateral and multilateral IRs. This study expects to provide new insight into IRs formulation for the benefit: political policymakers, strengthening WIRs and IRs academic world, thus equally beneficial to postgraduate students. Analytical review based on 120 selected articles written by field experts, security journalists, army people, international relations scholars (both from the Muslim and Western world), secret service representatives, newspaper testimony, and international organisations.

Language of Pandemic: An Impression of Filipino Character

Abstract

Coronavirus disease-19 undoubtedly changed people's lives and even created a new-normal society that is restricted by different health protocols. This disease created both possibilities and challenges at the same time. Thus, even the language used by the people was directed at the pandemic. In social media alone, the subjects of communication mainly were related to the virus. The emergence of the language of pandemic led the researchers to uncover the themes and meanings, language use and style, and characteristics of the netizens based on the language utilized in the online media platforms that will lead to the disclosure of Filipino characters. In the conduct of the study, qualitative content and rhetorical analyses were used to explore the objectives of the study. The social media posts of the netizens during the height of strict community quarantine implementation in the Philippines were used as the source of data. Findings reveal that the themes that emerged during the pandemic were politics, political issues, social concerns, and current events. The languages used were formal, casual, and street manifested through direct statements, rhetorical and direct questions, quotations, and hashtags. Moreover, the Filipino character shown based on the language utilized were found to be critical, judgmental, disrespectful, entitled, self-righteous, reactive, observant, feeling-intellectual, opinionated, and comparing which eventually unveiled the participants identity during the time of the pandemic.

Aesthetic Norms of Femininity and the Issue of Colorism in India

Abstract

Even after seven decades of independence, the legacy of the British still continues to linger in the minds of Indian. This paper aims to deconstruct the notion of beauty and femininity brought about by colonialism. Both of them are the product of colonialism. However, colonization begins before the coming of the British and colorism happened before them; but the British had propagated the idea of colorism among the Indians. To begin with, the notion of ‘beauty’ in the pre and post-colonialism has turned to be distinct. The idea of colorism grew bigger and effected job opportunities and marriage as well. This paper presents how women are much more affected by colorism such that they are defined by their skin color and needs to have a fair skin in order to be desirable for men. Keywords: Colorism; beauty; femininity; caste and color.

Towards A Service Oriented On-demand Cloud Computing Paradigm for Smart Cities

Abstract

Smart cities are advancing at a breakneck speed, thanks to advancements in wireless and sensor networks, information science, and human–computer interfaces. Urban computing provides the processing capacity that enables the integration of technologies that improve urban people' living situations, such as health care, urban planning, energy, and other factors. It's a set of intelligent computing solutions for managing key infrastructure components and services. In smart cities, a centralized cloud-computing architecture with elastically, on-demand, and pay-as-you-go computing resources has been widely deployed to increase storage capacity and processing velocity. Cloud computing adds scalability and on-demand computing capacity to urban system simulations, allowing for more accurate forecasting. Cloud computing enables smart cities to store and access data and applications outside of the local computing environment via computer networks. Because of the proliferation of IoT, smart cities can collect a large amount of data and deploy a large number of edge applications to make use of this data. Data and applications also present new challenges, such as near-real-time response, privacy, and massive amounts of data for network transmission. The service orientation reference model is the core reference model for cloud computing systems, and it uses the concept of services as the primary building blocks of application and system development. SOC allows for the development of low-cost, flexible, interoperable, and evolvable applications and systems. Service-oriented computing introduces and spreads two critical concepts that are also central to cloud computing: quality of service (QoS) and software-as-a-service (SaaS). This paper proposes an ITes-based service-oriented on-demand cloud computing paradigm for smart cities. Keywords: Smart City, Cloud, Internet of Things (IoT), Supply Chain Management, On- Demand Service Oriented Cloud Computing

An Efficient Architectural Framework for Autonomous Cloud Computing Under Deployment : An User Prospective For Cloud Based E-Learning

Abstract

Cloud-based E-learning is a method for reducing the cost and complexity of data access from a diverse pool of learning resources that are managed and controlled by third-party services. With the increased use of IOT devices in the field of education, the complexity in managing the tasks of the appliances and services has increased. The contemporary global network systems' complexity and dynamic necessitate an interacting architecture capable of autonomously changing the system structure and functionality with minimum human intervention. More importantly, the elastic nature of the cloud platform demands the frequent need for dynamic reconfiguration of offered services for learners, which is useful in the event of unforeseeable failures such as system crashes, network problems, or natural disasters, which typically cause service unavailability. Furthermore, the E-learning method must be integrated with a cloud platform that ensures data availability and provides a solution to protect critical data from attackers. This paper proposes an efficient architectural framework for an autonomous cloud computing platform, as well as some security measures for E-learners.
