ASSESSMENT OF SMALL-SCALE AGRICULTURE
IN LIVELIHOOD ENHANCEMENT IN BALIKUMBAT, NORTH WEST REGION OF
Ngwogeh Valery, Enchaw Gabriel Bachange, Ojuku Tiafack, and Nghobuoche FranklineThe rural poor depend primarily on small-scale agriculture and related activities to enhance livelihoods. They wrest a living through agriculture, though with many challenges. The study investigates the contribution of small-scale agriculture to livelihood improvement and the challenges faced by small farmers in Balikumbat Sub-Division (North-West Region, Cameroon). The hypothetic-deductive approach was used to test the hypotheses obtained via a systematic and a random sampling technique, with 97 respondents from 5 villages in the Sub-division. Supplementary primary data were obtained from questionnaire respondents, interviewees and from focus group discussion participants. The questionnaire administered focused on small-scale agriculture vis-à-vis livelihood improvement. Field data was processed and analyzed using inferential statistical tool (chi-square) with the aid of Statistical Package for Social Science. The calculated chi-square results revealed that physical and human challenges affect, to a greater extent, small-scale agriculture. Small-scale agriculture being the primary source of income in Balikumbat Sub-Division, contributes extensively in enhancing livelihood. However, findings suggest that 84.9% respondents attested that physical setbacks dominate challenges wrecking small-scale agriculture despite its importance in providing households basic needs. 65% of crop producers confirmed to the lucrativeness of small-scale farming. A second-guess of sensitization for this activity should be envisaged in order for it to have a tremendous positive visible result in the area.
The Use of Traditional Courtyard Design in Libyan Housing as a Way for A Sustainable Design [PDF]
HIND FARAJ ABDULHAMID BIN TAHIRThe courtyard in traditional houses played a major role in giving local architecture its character and uniqueness as an architectural unit a social climate that left its mark over time. It was noticed recently and started with a wave of modernity and the social changes that man experienced in Libya, which produce the absence of this element from the local architecture, and the emergence of contemporary housing that is unsustainable and ineffective in meeting the cultural and environmental needs for its occupants. This article seeks a solution for contemporary housing through the adoption of the many features that a traditional courtyard design offers. In addition to its advantages for thermal comfort and utilization of natural lighting, the courtyard reinforces many values of social connectivity and privacy for the family. Through an architectural analysis, the research tests the different characteristics of courtyard design and provides guidlines for further implementation in contemprary housing. The results of the study show that the courtyard design has a good potential in supporting sustainability within the contemporary context, while still supporting the functionality needed by modern dwellers.
Ecological Encroachment and it Environmental Implications in Badegana Grazing Reserve of Northeastern Nigeria [PDF]
Abubakar Hassan, Abubakar Tanko AbdulrahmanStudies on ecological encroachment in grazing reserves through spatial analysis represent vital evidence for comprehensive decision making on resources management. This study aimed to evaluate ecological encroachment and it environmental implications in grazing reserves of Northeastern Nigeria. The method used were spatial analysis, field inventory and observations. Base on the major findings, there are evidence of encroachment due to cultivated land increases from 53% to 84% and bareground stands at 7%. Grassland decreases from 36% to 4% and forest cover stands at 4% with changes to 6% between 2005 and 2010. Later, cultivated land decreases to less than 1% (Plate 1) and bareground increases from 7% to 34%. Grassland increase to 93% and further decrease to 65%, while forest cover increase to 1% in 2015 to 2020. In conclusion, the research work established the efficacy of satellite remote sensing imagery of LU cover records and changes in Badegana Gazing Reserve for the past 15 years. It can be deduced that; encroachment due to cultivation reduces across the period from 2005 to 2020. In the long run, the reserve is sustainable for livestock grazing since there is drastic reduction on cultivated land.
Mathematical Thinking Transformation and Children's Adaptive Anxiety [PDF]
Zhao Qiaofei(1), Lv Shouwei(1), Muhammad Sohail Khan(2)Adaptive anxiety in the process of mathematical thinking transformation is a psychological difficulty and thinking gap that students face throughout the construction of their mathematical thinking. Tension and pain are frequently present. Adaptive anxiety will also fade away after they leave the maths learning scenario. The shift of thinking, the appearance of complicated learning problems, and the breaking of the knowledge chain are the major causes of adaptive anxiety in primary school kids. It must be resolved by educating students about the true root of their worry, teachers' reasonable use of transformation tools, and textbook content organization. Reduce elementary school children' adaptive anxiety during the thinking transformation process and improve their physical and mental wellbeing.
A Mini Review : Effect of Nigella sativa L on Haematological Parameters of Cultured Fish [PDF]
RosidahDisease attacks on fish will have an impact on changes in various components in the body, one of which is hematological conditions. Therefore, the hematological index can be used as an important diagnostic tool to evaluate the health status of fish. In addition, the hematological index can also be used as an indication of the condition of the body's resistance to disease. Several publications show the hematological parameters of fish that can be used to diagnose fish health status, including the number of erythrocytes, the number of leukocytes, the hematocrit value and the hemoglobin value. The use of herbal ingredients can be used to help improve the condition of the hematological parameters of fish. Nigela sativa is one of the herbal ingredients that can induce several hematological parameters of fish, as an indication of an increase in specific and non-specific immunity of the fish body including increasing lysozyme and phagocytic activity, expression of various cytokines, so that fish resistance to disease and other environmental disturbances, such as stress. physiology can improve. So the purpose of this article is to describe the effect of N. sativa administration on hematological parameters in various types of cultured fish. Based on evidence from various scientific works, it gives an illustration, that the use of N. sativa seeds in the form of flour or oil can be used as a supplement to improve hematological conditions, based on the parameters of the number of erythrocytes, leukocytes, hematocrit and hemoglobin levels in various types of cultured fish.

STUDY OF WATER QUALITY ON MANGROVE ECOSYSTEMS AT BOJONG SALAWE PANGANDARAN [PDF]
Sheila ZallesaBojong Salawe is located in Karangjaladri Village, is one of the villages located in Parigi District, Pangandaran Regency, West Java Province where Pangandaran Regency itself is a relatively young district because it is the result of the expansion of Ciamis Regency, West Java. Bo-jong Salawe has a mangrove conservation area located around the coast and estuary. The method used in this study is a survey method where measurements are made directly in the field (in-situ). The mangrove ecosystem in bojong salawe grows along the coastline or on the banks of the river which is influenced by the tides of a combination of river water and sea water. In general, the condition of the wa-ters of Bojong Salawe is still fairly good, not exceeding the water quality standards, with a pH value of 7.35 – 7.9. This value indicates moderately alkaline water. Based on MENLH Decree No. 51 of 2004, this value is still within the sea water quality standard for biota, which is between pH 7 – 8.5. salinity values in the waters of the estuary Bojong Salawe ranged from 33 - 35 ppt with an average of 33.6 ppt. This value corresponds to the salinity value of seawater, which is between 33 – 37 ppt. According to the Minister of Environment Decree No. 51 of 2004, this salinity value is suitable for mangrove, seagrass and coral reef ecosystems. The water temperature is in the range of 28°C to 32°C.
