Title: MIDTERM IMPACT EVALUATION OF NORMATIVE FINANCING AMONG SUCS IN MINDANAO: EFFICIENCY, EFFECTIVENESS, GROWTH AND EQUITY CONSIDERATIONS
Name: Evelyn R. Campiseño, Wilfredo D. Carreon Jr.
Abstract:

The Philippine Commission on Higher Education jointly with the Department of Budget and Management implemented a new budget allocation scheme for the state colleges and universities in the country since 2004. The new scheme is called a Normative Financing formula (NF) where the budgets of these state institutions are tied to quality and equity considerations. The normative financing formula was developed by CHED in 1997 in collaboration with the DBM through a technical assistance grant from the Asian Development Bank in response to the perceived inefficiencies and inequities in the way that the government subsidizes the operations of these state schools. A policy impact analysis was conducted to determine the impact of NF on the SUC budgets. Results revealed that although the efficiency, effectiveness, growth and equity measures showed improvements since NF was implemented, the overall impact of NF on the SUC budgets and operations is not statistically significant as yet. Policy recommendations are suggested in this study.

Title: BIOLOGY AND DISTRIBUTION OF PAPHIA TEXTILE IN THE COASTAL WATERS OF KATIPUNAN AND ROXAS, ZAMBOANGA DEL NORTE
Name: Maria Rio A. Naguit, Evelyn R. Campiseño
Abstract:

The study focused on the biology and distribution of Paphia textile, a bivalve, in the coastal waters of Katipunan at Roxas, Zamboanga del Norte. Results revealed an approximate density of about 10 clams/m2 in the aforementioned areas. Morphological comparisons showed that clams which are 5-7 years old have the same lengths while the 8-9 years old clams have longer lengths. Clam weights positively correlated with clam lengths. The ages of the clams can be inferred from their lengths and rings.

Title: OBLIGATORY CREATIVITY IN PARENTING AMONG BLIND COUPLES
Name: Jose Reinhard C. Laoingco, Carmen C. Bolinto, Elisa C. Ferrer, Rosemarie C. Pachao, Herma Florita G. Ratac
Abstract:

The researchers found out that the blind people are able to do their parenting tasks in a manner that may be a little different from parents who have sense of vision or sight: they either perform the tasks slow and/or with assistance, and yet they are able to do it because there was a deliberate intention to compensate for the sensory deficit, i.e. blindness, that they bear.

Title: ANALYSIS OF TOXIC HEAVY METALS (ARSENIC, LEAD, AND MERCURY) IN SELECTED INFANT FORMULA MILK COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE IN THE PHILIPPINES BY AAS
Name: Gian Carlo Cruz, Zaheer Din, Christian Dale Feri, Angela Mae Balaoing, Eva Marie Gonzales, Hannah Mia Navidad, Ma. Margot Flor Schlaaff, Jennifer Winter
Abstract:

Objective: To test for the presence of toxic heavy metals, specifically Arsenic, Lead and Mercury in formula milk available in the Philippines for infants aged 6 to 12 months through Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometry. And to compare the results gathered to an existing standard for allowable amounts of toxic heavy metals in food products as set by the World Health Organization.
Design: Experimental Study
Main Outcome Measures: The presence or absence of toxic heavy metals (Lead, Arsenic and Mercury) in selected infant formula milk and their levels within or beyond standards set by the WHO.
Results: Of the three infant formulas tested, all were negative for Arsenic and Lead, while two out of the three infant formulas tested positive for Mercury with levels of 0.6333ppm and 0.8333ppm. The levels of Mercury obtained, expressed in parts per million (ppm), from the two infant formulas tested were above the Provisional Tolerable Weekly Intake of total Mercury, which is 0.005ppm, as set by the Food and Agriculture Organization/World Health Organization Joint Expert Committee on Food Additives (JECFA, 2003).
Conclusion: Two out of three milk samples tested were positive for Mercury in concentrations beyond the allowable limits. There are numerous milk products in the market, not only for infants aged 6-12 months but for other age groups as well, but the researchers were only able to test three of these for the presence of heavy metals. It therefore cannot be generalized from this study that all of the infant formula milk available contains toxic heavy metals. However, this study can be used as a reference or a foundation for future in-depth studies. This research can also serve as an eye-opener to consumers, manufacturers, and the professionals in the health care system due to possible direct or cumulative effects it may cause.

Abstract:

Objective: This study wants to determine which is more effective in reducing bacterial growth between Immersion and Drop Method.
Design: experimental study
Main Outcome Measures: measure of colony count difference
Results: there is significant reduction on the measure of the colony count using both the Immersion and Drop Method
Conclusion: Immersion method is more effective in disinfecting contact lenses of SLU Medical students than Drop Method.
