    Lack of fish catch is one of the problems faced by coastal communities. From the fish farming activities in the sea, the community can obtain enormous economic benefits and support the economic growth of the family through the sale of fish from aquaculture. The government has given the opportunity and responsibility to the community in managing its resources, where the community itself has a need, goals, and aspirations and the community also makes decisions for their welfare. Socialization is needed regarding the importance of keeping coral reefs because the benefits are very good for coastal communities. The challenge faced is because coastal communities are increasing the ability and knowledge of the community about the importance of protecting ecosystems and capturing fisheries that are safe for the environment

    Tailored retrieval of health information from the web for facilitating communication and empowerment of elderly people

    A patient, nowadays, acquires health information from the Web mainly through a “human-to-machine” communication process with a generic search engine. This, in turn, affects, positively or negatively, his/her empowerment level and the “human-to-human” communication process that occurs between a patient and a healthcare professional such as a doctor. A generic communication process can be modelled by considering its syntactic-technical, semantic-meaning, and pragmatic-effectiveness levels and an efficacious communication occurs when all the communication levels are fully addressed. In the case of retrieval of health information from the Web, although a generic search engine is able to work at the syntactic-technical level, the semantic and pragmatic aspects are left to the user and this can be challenging, especially for elderly people. This work presents a custom search engine, FACILE, that works at the three communication levels and allows to overcome the challenges confronted during the search process. A patient can specify his/her information requirements in a simple way and FACILE will retrieve the “right” amount of Web content in a language that he/she can easily understand. This facilitates the comprehension of the found information and positively affects the empowerment process and communication with healthcare professionals

    Instant chocolate drink is a type of processed chocolate product that has many devotees, the use of sucrose as a sweetener for flavour in the process of making instant chocolate drinks can have side effects on health, namely it can cause heart attacks, allergies, diarrhoea, increase the risk of bladder cancer, hypertension and migraines. Stevia leaves contain glycosides which have a sweetness level of 250 higher than sucrose. The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of stevia sugar as a natural sweetener in the manufacture of instant chocolate drinks. The method used is a laboratory study using a single factor at 3 levels of treatment, namely the concentration of instant chocolate and stevia sugar used as much as 11g and 7g; 9g and 9g; as well as 7g and 11g. Data analysis used two methods, namely the Chi-square method for organoleptic data and the One Way ANOVA method with a 95% confidence level followed by Duncan's New Multiple Test (DMRT). The results of this study are samples with concentrations of cocoa powder and stevia sugar as much as 11g and 7g are the best treatment by having a colour parameter value of 4.13 (like), taste parameter of 3.80 (somewhat like), aroma parameter of 4.13 (like), the viscosity parameter is 4.33 (like), the water content parameter is 4.14%, the solubility parameter is 90.15%, the pH parameter is 6.4 and the total dissolved solids parameter is 9.03
