Abstract

The antecedents of pupils’ leisure reading and how they affect one another were key issues this study sought to make lucid. Pupils’ self-concept as readers, the value they place on reading, their attitude toward recreational and academic reading, their reading speed and level, the availability of materials at home for their reading, their reading interests and the amount of time they spend in leisure reading were determined. The correlation of each antecedent with the others was established. Findings reveal that most antecedents are generally positive with girls having more positive, higher and better antecedents than boys. The study reflects on the gender deviations in terms of antecedents and on the need to engage pupils more in leisure reading and make the antecedents of their leisure reading better, higher and more positive.

LIBRARY AS A RESEARCH ENABLER

Author

Abstract

The study determines the role of library as a research enabler. The study employed the descriptive survey questionnaire using Pearson Product Moment Correlation and Mean to determine the significant relationship between the library characteristics and the research enablers. Based on the data, the library had been found to be a mechanism that supports the research enablers. Without a functional library, research activities in the university may not achieve quality outputs since the library provides the basic information needs of users through its available facilities. It is no doubt that libraries play an important role in supporting teaching, learning and research. The support of administration to the library is one big factor to achieve a functional library because though their support in terms of structure, budget, resources and services, libraries will function based on the institutional vision, mission and objectives.  As such, the library is now considered to be a research enabler in the university.

Abstract

The metering and control data in power line networks can be modified by malicious attacker. We can expect that an attacker may be able to eavesdrop the transmission data, and may be able to send modified data to device for control system. In this article we have tested different algorithms designed to address security encrypting algorithm for PLC networks. It also addresses the issue of securing communication with encryption algorithms and limits of throughputs during their use. The results measured under realistic conditions in PLC network were compared to results during a simulation where throughput with usage of 3DES encrypting algorithm dropped to 20% compared to AES encryption algorithm. Based on the gathered result we should be able to identify weather it is suitable to secure the communication with older encryption algorithms and what are the differences compared to modern algorithms and unsecured communication.

Abstract

This paper aims to design several conceptual models in the context of the relationship of Good Corporate Governance (GCG) implementation to competitiveness in Indonesian banking industry. The research employed Interpretive Structural Modeling method to design the conceptual model. The result shows that as a key sub-element, Directors and Commissioners play an important role in general. In general, state-owned banks state that transparency is a key sub-element of GCG principles, while private banks declare accountability as a key sub-element. In relation to corporate governance and competitiveness, productivity and profitability can be considered key sub-elements that lead to market valuation. The implementation of good governance bank directly contributes to improving the competitiveness of the bank.

The existing curriculum of diploma program in tours and travel  has been applied since the year of  2000 by tourism college in Indonesia. The rapid change and innovation  in  information technology  brought a lot of conveniences on tours and travel business. Those manual procedures, are no longer applicable. As such, the core competencies curriculum in this program has been continuously at no change. Moreover, the trend in tourism has been changed too. It is now the era of green tourism that also change demand and  consumption preference of tourists. On the other hand, Indonesian qualification framework is aimed to promote better quality of human resources development prior to free flow of people within the region. The main objective of this study is to analyse the curriculum compliance and to find out the solution that could be taken to meet the requirement of the fifth level in the qualification-framework. The focus group discussion is held to figureout the suitable competencies in level five and its the demand. The secondary data were collected from seven  private college out of the 26 private colleges throughout the country.  Afteward the analysis between secondary and the primary data from end-users was taken. The results showed that the compliance on regulation are in place in terms of total of credits. However the curriculum  and syllabus are not high  enough to obtain level five. It is therefore suggested that curriculum must be reviewed and adjusted to formulate the fifth level including the need to follow tourism trend of green tourism curriculum
