The results of the initial survey with people living in 1 of 3 people stated that the services provided by the Manggelum Health Center, Boven Digoel Regency, were not optimal in terms of providing health services in terms of time or hours of service, and complaints from several mothers who have toddlers about the implementation of the integrated service post (Posyandu) that is not properly scheduled. <strong>Objectives:</strong> The goal of this study is to determine the factors that related to the utilization of health services at the Manggelum Health Center, Boven Digoel Regency. <strong>Methods:</strong> This study is a type of quantitative analytic research with a cross-sectional study approach, which means that the data is measured or observed all at once. In February and March 2021, this research was carried out at the Manggelum Health Center, Manggatiga Kolopkam Village, and Bayanggop Village in the Boven Digoel Regency. This study's population is from the working areas of Puskesmas Manggelum, Kampung Mnggatiga, Kolopkam, and Kampung Bayanggop in the Boven Digoel Regency.</p> <p>The researcher used a purposive sampling technique to determine sample size; the sample represented the population in the working area of the Manggelum Health Center; the total population in this study was 90 people. <strong>Result:</strong> It was found that variables affordability, family support, and perceived condition have a significant relationship with the utilization of health services at the Manggelum Health Center, Boven Digoel Regency. Meanwhile, education and knowledge have no significant &nbsp;&nbsp;relationship with the utilization of health services at the Manggelum Health Center, Boven Digoel Regency.</p> Andreas A.

A gram-negative bacterial strain was isolated from cultures of water samples on Bunt and Rovira (BR) and 0.1 X Nutrient agar media. The isolated strain was characterized for cell wall structure, colony morphology, catalase expression, antibiotic sensitivity and 16S ribosomal RNA (rRNA) gene sequence. Results showed that the strain is gram-negative, catalase positive and rod shaped with pink colony morphology. The disc diffusion test for the strain revealed its sensitivity to cefoxitin, ofloxacin, tetracyclin, telithromycin, tobramycin, and sulfamethoxazole-trimethoprim antibiotics. Blast search for 16S rRNA gene sequence indicated that the strain is <em>Erwinia persicina </em>which is pathogenic strain for plants.</p> Ayse Kizilyer Copyright (c) 2022 International Journal of Sciences: Basic and Applied Research (IJSBAR) https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 https://gssrr.org/index.php/JournalOfBasicAndApplied/article/view/14235 Wed, 29 Jun 2022 06:52:39 +0000 Analysis of the Use of Contraceptive Devices and Pills for Couples of Fertile Age before and During the Covid-19 Pandemic in Papua Province https://gssrr.org/index.php/JournalOfBasicAndApplied/article/view/14242 <p><strong>Background:</strong> Contraceptive services are the provision or installation of contraception or other contraception-related measures to candidates and participants in family planning services carried out in family planning service facilities in order to help married couples give birth at the ideal age, have a number of children, and set the ideal birth spacing of children. The Covid-19 pandemic has created challenges in implementing the Family Planning (KB) Program, particularly limited access to family planning services. <strong>Objectives:</strong> The goal of this study is to describe the use of contraceptive devices and pills, as well as the proportion of acceptors by type, method, and regency, in Papua Province before and during the Covid-19 pandemic. <strong>Methods:</strong> This is a concurrent embedded (unbalanced mix) research that combines quantitative and qualitative research methods with the research population, which is Couples of Fertile Age in Papua Province. The study's sample consists of fertile couples who use family planning before and during the pandemic. The proportion table was used to analyze quantitative data, and the triangulation method was used to analyze qualitative data. <strong>Result:</strong> According to the findings, 34% of contraceptive devices and pills (Alokon) were used prior to the pandemic, and 39% were used during the pandemic. The proportion of contraceptive devices and pills used before the pandemic was 29 percent for Long Term Contraception Method (MKJP) and 71 percent for non-MKJP. During the pandemic, MKJP was found in 28% of people and non-MKJP in 72%. Before the pandemic, the proportion of contraceptive devices and pills used by type was 49.27 percent for injection and 0.23 percent for Male Operation Method (MOP). In the event of a pandemic, inject 49.70% and MOP 0.21 percent. The proportion of ALOKON use by regency before the pandemic was 26.47 percent in Jayapura City and 24.35 percent during the pandemic. Before and during the pandemic, Intan Jaya Regency was 0.04 percent.</p> Chaterind P.

Sourcing and purchasing an adequate amount of raw material for processing is an essential and considerable factor in the manufacturing industry. Effective demand forecasting can reduce the excess purchase of raw materials. Sourced raw materials are required to stock in inventory for further processing. An excess inventory needs additional space for warehousing, which expends additional costs. A bulk amount of sourcing without proper forecasting can lead the materials towards long-time ageing. Excessive ageing can decrease the quality of the raw material and directly impact production performance. Unorganized sourcing can result in a higher amount of raw material waste due to the amount of small unused lots. In this assessment, the data of "Asrotex Group" will be evaluated after the implementation of the SCM department. A comparison of the previous records will be done with the company's current scenario and assess how the scenario changed after the supply chain management (SCM) department's installation.</p> Sanjida Sultana, Fahmida Faiza Fahmi , Tanzima Zoha Chowdhury , Afsana Ferdous Copyright (c) 2022 International Journal of Sciences: Basic and Applied Research (IJSBAR) https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 https://gssrr.org/index.php/JournalOfBasicAndApplied/article/view/14199 Sun, 26 Jun 2022 19:04:41 +0000 A Study of the Design Semantics Understanding & Design Process & Application in Design Practices https://gssrr.org/index.php/JournalOfBasicAndApplied/article/view/14232 <p>The purpose of this study is to explore the approach of how to extract the user assessment keywords from well-known websites by carrying out grounded research and utilising typical design items as research samples. This article explores the use of narrative design in cultural and creative products using narrative design as its starting point. The application relevance of narrative design in cultural and creative products is discussed first, followed by the application principles and methods of narrative design in cultural and creative products. It is envisaged that the use of narrative design would make the provision of cultural and creative products easier and could elicit resonance between consumers and specific cultures, as well as research ideas and design methodologies for unique cultural and creative product theories.</p> Yuan Yuan Cai , Mustaffa Halabi Bin Azahari Copyright (c) 2022 International Journal of Sciences: Basic and Applied Research (IJSBAR) https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 https://gssrr.org/index.php/JournalOfBasicAndApplied/article/view/14232 Sun, 26 Jun 2022 18:58:51 +0000
