    Assessment of Workplace of Barangay Health Workers in Selected Municipalities in the Province of Albay, Philippines
    Vol. 22, Issue 1, 2019

    Abstract:The barangay health workers (BHWs) play a significant role in the Philippine health care delivery system. They act as frontliners under the primary health care approach. They render primary care services such as first aid, maternal, neonatal, and child- and community-based interventions in the community. Individual work performance can be affected by individual motivation, work environment, and existing regulatory requirements. This study generally aimed to determine the working environment of B...

    School-Based Psychosocial Intervention Program for Disaster-Related Trauma in Albay, Philippines
    Vol. 22, Issue 1, 2019

    Abstract:This study aimed to design a school-based psychosocial intervention program for disaster-related trauma in Albay as a psychosocial support to promote mental health in times of disasters. Likewise, this study aimed to prepare a module for the program developed, and present the proposed program using the module for preparedness and response. Developmental-evaluative method of research through expert panel evaluation, survey, interview techniques, and workshop sessions as well as focused group disc...

    Development and Evaluation of Hydro-pneumatic Power Brake System Trainer
    Vol. 22, Issue 1, 2019

    Abstract:Effective instructional materials can empower students by improving skills and concepts through multiple representations and enhanced visualization. It can also engage students in higher-order thinking, builds strong problem-solving skills, and develops a deep understanding of concepts and procedures when properly used. Hence, the researchers developed an automotive hydro-pneumatic power brake system and evaluated its effectiveness as an instructional device through the research and development ...

    Geotechnical Characterization of the Soil along the Banks of the Sagumayon River in the Province of Albay, Philippines
    Vol. 22, Issue 1, 2019

    Abstract:The effects of pollution, weather and climate, and societal pressures had changed drastically the physical characteristics and use of the Sagumayon River, an important river network in the city of Legazpi. This study aimed to obtain relevant geotechnical engineering properties of the soil along the river banks, which could provide an indication of its vulnerability to erosion, settlement, and slope failure. In-situ and ex-situ tests conducted in four areas of the river along an 800-m stretch wit...

    Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WASH) Situation in Bicol University, Albay, Philippines
    Vol. 22, Issue 1, 2019

    Abstract:The Philippines is committed to “achieve universal and equitable access to adequate, safe, affordable drinking water and equitable sanitation and hygiene for all by 2030” (SDG 6). Thus, this study attempted to assess the water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) situation of Bicol University (BU) in terms of existing water facilities and water quality, sanitation, and hand washing facilities; the ratio of female and male students and personnel to WASH facilities; and the risks for contamination ...

    Threats and Mechanisms in Preserving the Oral Literature of the Aeta Magbukon of Bataan, Philippines
    Vol. 22, Issue 1, 2019

    Abstract:This focused ethnographic research explored the threats faced by the Aeta Magbukon of Bataan in the Philippines in preserving their oral literature, as well as their indigenous mechanisms in preserving this cultural heritage. Data triangulation, which included field notes, in-depth semi-structured interview, and focused-group discussion, was used. Six elders of the tribe served as key informants of the study while the Aeta personnel of the National Commission on Indigenous People (NCIP)–Bataan...

    Development and Evaluation of Power Steering System Trainer
    Vol. 22, Issue 1, 2019

    Abstract:Automotive students may be able to understand the lessons more efficiently with the use of functional instructional materials. However, such instructional materials are not readily available in educational institutions. This problem is common not only in state universities and colleges (SUCs), but also in senior high schools offering technology courses like automotive technology. To address such difficulty, this study aimed to (1) design a power steering system trainer, (2) construct and test th...

    Antibacterial Activities of Endophytic Fungi from Capsicum annuum L. (Siling labuyo) leaves and fruits
    Vol. 22, Issue 1, 2019

    Abstract:Endophytic fungi were isolated from Capsicum annuum (siling labuyo) from three ecological zones in the province of Albay, Philippines and were identified through morpho-cultural characteristics and by molecular analysis of the internal transcribed spacer (ITS) region of the 18S ribosomal DNA. Eight fungal endophytes were isolated from the leaves and fruits. Seven were identified as Colletotrichum gloeosporioides, Lasiodiplodia pseudotheobromae, Nigrospora sphaerica, Guignardia mangiferae, Coprin...
