Title: Moral Standards and Corporation’s Moral Responsibility: Who is taking the blame?
Name: Fr. Damianus Abun, SVD, MBA, PhD
Moral standards are guides for moral behavior, be it individual person or groups or corporation. The morality of a certain act is assessed against those standards in order to be declared moral or immoral and consequently for someone or group to claim responsibility. The crucial factor in determining moral responsibility is the presence or the absence of knowledge and free will in a certain act. Corporation, though it is a separate entity, legal entity created by law, not a human person, is not completely out of hand and can just do what it wants but it is also guided by moral standards and should take moral responsibility to its immoral actions. A corporation as an entity is still composed of rational beings that have knowledge and free will in pursuing their objectives. Therefore, when things go wrong in the corporation, it is not only employees as individual persons are taking the moral responsibility but also the corporation.

Title: Development and Validation of Game-based Lessons in Science and Health
Name: Mitzy Menor Macaraeg
Observing children at play the researcher sees excitement, involvement, and concentration. The researcher then thought: “what if teachers can raise the pupils’ level of performance in Science and Health with this level of enthusiasm of pupils in playing games?” This study aimed to develop and validate Game-Based Lessons (GBLs) in teaching Science and Health V using the research and development method, one-shot case study design, and four sets of questionnaire/checklist as instruments. The developed and validated GBLs were then implemented to the Grade V pupils of PSU Laboratory Elementary School. Results show that 100% of the class using GBLs passed the Science and Health quizzes and a very satisfactory performance was gained. The findings imply that GBLs can be used by teachers as their instructional material to improve the performance of their pupils in Science and Health. Teachers are then highly encouraged to use games in their teaching whenever needed.

Title: Design, Fabrication And Performace Evaluation Of A Cocoon Deflossing Machine
Name: Fatima S. Rodriguez, RPAE, MSAE

Cocoon floss is one of the wasteful materials in processing cocoon into linen fibers and novelty items. Human can defloss 2-3kg of cocoon per hour. Hence, delfossing cocoon is a laborious and tiresome job. To meet industry demand on cocoon products, machine to defloss cocoon at higher deflossing capacity is needed.
The cocoon deflossing machine with an overall dimension of 60cmx40cmx134cm was evaluated in three treatments with three replicates each. It is composed of the following components; the hopper, frame, the deflossing assembly, discharge chute and the power transmission system. To evaluate the performance of the cocoon deflossing machine, deflossing time, number of damaged cocoons, weight of deflossed cocoon and power consumption were determined.
Using the 2.5x1Bx1 drive pulley and 10x1Bx1 driven pulley, with a deflossing cylinder speed of 435 rpm, the cocoon deflossing capacity and efficiency is 5 kg/hr and 99%, respectively. The machine cost of deflossing is Php13.97/kg compared to Php 26.67/kg of manual deflossing.

Title: Social Entrepreneurship in the Province of Quezon: Its Status and Directions
Name: Joanna Paula A. Ellaga, DBA

The study determined the status and directions of social entrepreneurship (SE) in the province of Quezon in terms of production, financial management, marketing, and administrative aspects. Descriptive research method, random sampling, survey with the social enterprises and their client-beneficiaries, frequency distribution, weighted mean, and one-way analysis of variance were utilized to gather and analyze pertinent data. Most of the social enterprises are in corporation and cooperative forms, in food business, and has been operating for the last twelve to seventeen (12-17) years. Almost all of the respondents strongly observed the said business aspects except the newly established and those that are in cooperative, and in handcrafting business, which employs marketing concerns in a moderate manner. There is no significant difference both in the status and challenges of SE in almost all of the business aspects when they are grouped according to profile, except the types of business engaged in. Enterprising and serving is possible; however, basic setback in production and weak market presence are encountered by the enterprises. To strengthen the SE in the province, the respondents saw the need for tapping more suppliers, installing a common production facility, establishing a stronger market presence, and creating a self-help group in the community.

Title: Mangrove Establishment Project in Ilocos Sur
Name: Victor G. Sanidad and Remely A. Sanidad

The Mangrove Rehabilitation/Establishment is one of the component projects under the Philippine National Aquasilviculture Program started in the year 2012 which aims to rehabilitate or establish mangrove in areas which are abandoned, undeveloped and underutilized in Ilocos Sur. The project also ensures livelihood and food security contribution to the community. These enable the beneficiaries of the project the inculcation of their responsibility towards resource management. A total of 183,300 mangrove propagules were planted from the three municipalities of Ilocos Sur to wit; Santa, Narvacan and Sta. Maria. Community organizing and trainings were provided to the beneficiaries with regards to environmental and gender awareness, value formation and team building. Mangrove growth were periodically monitored in all sites with an average survival of 47.48% during the 1st year of implementation but replanted to come up the expected survival rate. The mangrove established is now a breeding and nursery ground for a number of marine and brackishwater organisms including commercially important shrimp, crab and fish species and provided structure to land while preventing erosion

Title: Formulation and Acceptability of Enhanced Sea Cucumber Kropeck
Name: Katrina S. Sarazawa

The newly developed Sea Cucumber Kropeck enhanced with jute leaves (Vitamin A) is considered as healthy, acceptable and nutritious. Sea Cucumber Kropeck comprises mainly of rice flour, sea cucumber meat, fish meat, jute powder, black pepper and salt. The use of 75% sea cucumber and jute leaves in the formulation enhanced the sensory qualities of the product. It contains 4% ash,
