    This cross-sectional study examined the perception of helicopter parenting of mothers and narcissistic traits.  350 undergraduate students were randomly selected from Federal University of Agriculture Abeokuta. Pautler’s (2017) helicopter parenting and Pincus et al. (2009) pathological narcissism formed the questionnaire to elicit responses from the participants. Data collected were analysed for univariate and bivariate findings. The findings revealed 15.8% of the participants had a high perception of their mothers as a helicopter parent. Demographic characteristics of participants such as age, number of siblings, living arrangements and educational status of mothers had a significant relationship (p < 0.05) with perceived helicopter mothers. However, there was a significant relationship between vulnerable narcissism and the perceived helicopter parenting of mothers. The perception of youth on mothers’ helicopter parenting style was associated with age, number of siblings living arrangements and mother’s occupation respectively. Thus, there is a need for further study on fathers’ helicopter parenting style and how this can influence narcissism among young adults

    The main objective of this study was to determine the learning styles and the performances of the Junior High School students in Mathematics from Cebu Province Division under the New Normal during the first quarter of the S.Y. 2020 – 2021 as the basis for Adaptive Learning Engagement Plans. This study employed a quantitative and qualitative research design which utilized a descriptive method using the response of the respondents in a self-made survey questionnaire and an adapted learning preference questionnaire as well as the scores obtained by the respondents from the exam in their Mathematics’ modules. The respondents were the junior high school students in each school through simple random sampling in each grade level. The findings of the study showed that the respondents had an age range appropriate for each grade level. The respondents have moderately good performance in mathematics in the previous school year (2019- 2020). As to learning style, forty-eight percent of the respondents were categorized as visual and the rest were auditory and haptic. Most of the respondents’ scores are average. Results showed that there is a significant correlation between the respondents’ gender, previous grade in mathematics, frequency of studying the lesson, and their learning preference which means they need to be given more attention and design more activities that suits their preference in learning under the new normal. It is hereby recommended that the adaptive learning engagement plans be implemented

    Recent studies on trends in depression and anxiety have led to raised concern regarding overall health status of college students during this crucial period of transition into adulthood which can potentially adversely affect their social and academic development. The present study aims to examine the association of various socio-demographic factors along with different forms of social and physical activities with prevalence of depression and anxiety among college students. The prevalence of depression and anxiety was found to be 33.3% and 32.4% respectively among the study participants. It was found that depression was lower among those who shared a close bond with their parents and siblings. Girls were found to be at significantly higher risk of depression (1.86; 95% C.I. (1.16-2.97)) compared to boys.  Students involved in active yoga showed lower depressive and anxiety disorders. The study identified being overweight and obese, along with an increasing consumption of social media (which promoted fad diets, comparisons etc.), as some of the major risk factors for mental disorders

    Design of sites for radio networks on Colombian cartography through the technological tool Xirio Online, Case study: Caparrapí – Cundinamarca

    Get PDF
    At present, with the development of emerging technologies, society is facing the need for network infrastructure to guarantee full broadcasting and coverage; thus requiring the development of tools, strategies and / or techniques such as the sites of base stations of telecommunications operators, also taking into account that with the appearance of 5G the number of antennas will increase because the use of high frequencies has less coverage. The implementation of the necessary infrastructure to achieve the desired deployment of the telecommunications network represents cultural, organizational, ecological and financial challenges, which is why in Colombia the Ministry of Information and Communications Technologies (MinTIC) established public policy guidelines for the massification of 5G technology seeking to reduce the existing digital divide between urban and rural territories. For this reason, the project supports its methodology in the Xirio Online Software, which using high resolution cartography allows planning, controlling and simulating radio frequencies in rural and urban environments; At the same time, it analyzes the configuration parameters implemented in the simulation of the site and its coverage.  The results obtained will serve as a tool for the installation or adaptation of the Telecommunications infrastructure in the municipality of Caparrapí – Cundinamarca, seeking in it a quality interconnection. &nbsp

    Evaluation of the potential of Chlorella vulgaris for the removal of pollutants from standing water

    Get PDF
    In this study we evaluated the microalga Chlorella vulgaris in order to determine the ability of the microalga to remove the highest concentration of contaminants present in stagnant water. A mixing design of the microalgae with the wastewater was carried out for 20 days, with a 12:12 h photoperiod, in a greenhouse. The highest removal efficiencies for heavy metals were ≥ 98% (mainly Cd, Hg, As and Pb) and ≥ 90% for BOD5, COD, nitrates, phosphates, total phosphorus, faecal and total coliforms. Finally, according to the design analysis, it was determined that the optimal microalgae mixture 1:10 achieves the highest DO production and the highest removal, in a cultivation time of 15 days. In conclusion, microalgae demonstrate their capacity for bioremediation of rural domestic wastewater jagüeyes

    Adaptability, Social Support, and Psychological Wellbeing Among Malaysian Adults

    Get PDF
    Malaysian adults are regularly exposed to a wide variety of complex stressors (exacerbated during the COVID-19 pandemic): these stressors, without sufficient protective resources, threaten to negatively impact upon psychological wellbeing. Recent literature has shown that personal resources (e.g., one’s adaptability) and situational resources (e.g., one’s social support) are associated with psychological wellbeing; however, limited research has examined the unique contribution of these resources to psychological wellbeing among collectivist cultures (e.g., Malaysian adults). Here, a sample of 136 Malaysian adults completed a survey measuring their adaptability and social support as well as different components of psychological wellbeing (i.e., flourishing, psychological distress, and life satisfaction). We found that adaptability and social support contribute significantly, and independently, to psychological wellbeing (all measures) among Malaysian adults, with social support being the stronger predictor in each case. Further, no significant interaction effects between adaptability and social support on psychological wellbeing were observed. The findings corroborate a developing literature suggesting that adaptability and social support may be targeted in efforts to enhance psychological wellbeing but also indicate that among Malaysian adults of a collectivist culture, social support may be more salient
