The data used is secondary data obtained from BPS. The data in this study is an annual time series from 2007-2020. This study uses the simultaneous regression analysis method with the Amos program. The findings of this study indicate that inflation, interest rates, and exchange rates do not affect Indonesia’s economic growth. This study shows that the policies implemented can stabilize the rupiah exchange rate, inflation, and interest rates which in turn have an impact on the distribution of People’s Business Credit so as to increase Indonesia’s economic growth.
200 of 2nd generation stage of palms arising from a cross tall and dwarf of Cocos nucifera were evaluated for the morphology and yield characters. The objective of this study is to determine the segregation patterns of the morphology and the yield characters on the tall x dwarf cross at the 2nd generation stage planted in the field. In the 2nd generation population planted, 4 segregation genotypes were selected for the present study on the contrasting morphological and production characters. Data on year 4 of segregation, flowering phases, stem height, stem diameter, stem perimeter, and yield was recorded. The segregation to hybrid was the highest number of plants compared to others with 116. Recombination of the autogamous nature along with the tall characters was observed in the 2nd generation palms in terms of stem height and perimeter. Certain segregated genotypes arising from the 2nd generation recorded the high potential number of nuts per hectare/year that comprised dwarf segregation up to 25,000 compared to other segregated varieties due to their resistance to inbreeding depression. The possibility of extracting recombined lines with desirable characters to improve the Malayan tall x dwarf is also discussed.
The COVID-19 pandemic has changed public behavior to get health services. The fear of the public tobe exposed to COVID-19 changes their behavior by switching to use online health services. The study examined the formation of intentions using the Halodoc application during the COVID-19 pandemic era. Attitudes and beliefs as mediators are the basis for evaluating individuals to intend to use the Halodoc application. Individual evaluations for using the Halodoc application are based on application vulnerabilities, perceived risks, and the application characteristics. The data were collected using an online questionnaire for the Halodoc application users as many as 200 respondents. The results of hypothesis testing using the AMOS Structural Equation Modeling analysis method showed that the application characteristics have a significant effect on the beliefs and individual’s positive attitudes in forming an intention to use the Halodoc application. It was not from the vulnerability and risk factors that the results were not significant. The results indicated that the characteristics of the Halodoc application is accepted by the community to use it. During the COVID-19 pandemic era the public ignored the vulnerabilities and the risks of the Halodoc application to get health services.
The study seeks to examine the relationship between Entrepreneurship practices and the level of poverty among farmers in Jos, Nigeria. The study covered small and medium scale farmer entrepreneurs within Jos North, Jos South and Jos East. A sample size of 518 was obtained from the population of 834 at 5% error tolerance and 95% level of confidence, using Simple Random Sampling. 505(97.5%) of the questionnaire distributed were returned while 13(2.5%) of the questionnaire distributed were not returned. self-structured questionnaire was used to collect data. The study conducted a pre-test on the questionnaire to ensure the validity of the instrument. Data collected were presented in frequency tables. The study used Foster, Greer and Thorbecke (FGT) index and Multi-Dimensional Poverty Index (MPI) to measure the level of poverty. The study revealed that the level of poverty among farmers in the study area is high, result analysis also indicates that majority of the male respondents 215(85.7%) are poor using FGT, compared to MPI with 248(78.5%) non-poor males. The study recommends among other things that there is the urgent need to increase entrepreneurship education and awareness among the farmers so as to improve their living condition by increasing their income.
This study explored HEXACO personality traits and the prediction of academic achievement through personality traits and demographic variables. This study also explored gender differences in personality traits and academic achievement. The sample comprised 377 school-going students. HEXACO–PI was used to measure the personality traits of students. Self-reported GPA was collected from the students to measure academic achievement. The results showed significant gender differences in the E trait only. Academic achievement did not differ significantly for gender. Results showed that X and C traits showed a significant correlation with academic achievement. Further, 23.1% of the variation in academic achievement was predicted by the combined effect of personality traits and demographic variables. Further, extraversion and conscientiousness were the significant independent predictors of academic achievement. Thus, personality traits should be considered to improve students’ academic achievement.

This study aims to examine the effect of the realization of government spending on the education sector, health sector, infrastructure sector on the human development index and economic growth through the human development index in all provinces in Indonesia, as for the research period from 2016 to 2020. In this study using secondary data. in the form of panel data. Panel data is a combination of cross section data and time series data, which consists of data from all provinces in Indonesia from 2016 to 2020. The data sources are obtained from the Central Statistics Agency, the Directorate General of Fiscal Balance, the Ministry of Finance of the Republic of Indonesia, the Ministry of Public Works and Housing. People, Ministry of Health and other sources. The findings of this study indicate that education expenditures have no direct effect on the human development index. Health spending has no direct effect on the human development index. Infrastructure spending has no direct effect on the human development index.
The human development index has no direct effect on economic growth. Education expenditure has no direct effect on economic growth and indirectly through the development index. Health spending has no direct effect on economic growth and indirectly through the human development index. Infrastructure spending has no direct effect on economic growth and indirectly through the human development index. The findings of this study found that, although there was an increase in the amount of expenditure in each province, it was not yet able to increase the human development index due to the disparity in expenditure between provinces, or there were other variables that influenced but were not included in this study.
This study aims to determine how much effect government expenditure, cost of living index and poverty index relative to employment opportunities through the level of urbanization in the city of Makassar, Indonesia. The data used is secondary data obtained from the Statistical Centre Board in the period of 2000-2019 or 20 years. The analytical method used is the simultaneous equation estimation method. The results showed that the government expenditure variable had a positive and significant effect on the level of urbanization, but the level of urbanization had no effect on employment opportunities. So overall government expenditure does not indirectly affect employment opportunities through the level of urbanization. The cost of the living index does not indirectly affect employment opportunities through the level of urbanization. The relative poverty index does not indirectly affect employment opportunities through the level of urbanization. Of the 3 variables as a determinant of the level of urbanization, it turns out that only one variable has a significant effect on the level of urbanization, namely the government expenditure variable.
Distributed Generators (DG or embedded generators) are generators that are connected to the distribution network of the power system. In this paper, the Nigeria 330kV grid network system was analyzed and simulated using the power system analysis tool (PSAT) simulation software to evaluate the impact of the distributed generator placement on stability of the 41 bus Nigeria grid Network System. The effect of the installation of the distributed generators on the grid was studied and analyzed and the result was compared with the grid, without the installation of the distributed generators. To achieve our aim, a load flow method using Newton-Raphson technique was used to estimate unknown variables in the network such as voltage, angle, MVar and MW on the power system analysis tool box simulation software (PSAT). Before the installation of the distributed generators, it was observed that the network was operating at an average voltage of 318kV and the total number of buses that were below the standard operating voltage range, (313.5kV-346.5kV), were about eleven buses. The total line loss in the network was at 107.23MW. A large-scale disturbance such as a three-phase fault was applied at Ajeokuta with the critical clearing time observed at 1.153 seconds for the fault to be cleared and the system returned to normalcy. When the relay acted due to the presence of the fault, it was observed that the oscillation of the rotor speed of the generator at Shiroro settled after 17.43 seconds. After the connection of the distributed generators on the network at the load buses below the standard operating voltage range, which are Kano, Katampe, Damaturu, Gwagwalada, Yola and B. Kebbi, it was observed that the average voltage of the entire bus in the network improved from 318kV to 326kV which is about 2.5% improvement. Even the violated buses were made to operate within the standard operating voltage range. There was the reduction in the transmission line loss from about 107.23MW to about 83.16MW which is about 22% reduction and the rotor speed of the generator at Shiroro was stabilizing after 16.9 seconds compared to the base case that took after 17.43 seconds. From the result obtained, it was observed that the installations of distributed generator in the Nigeria grid has the capacity to reduced line losses, voltage profile improvement in the grid and line flow reduction leading to the resolution of the congested network as well as improvement in power quality and stability across the grid network. It was also observed from the analysis that the distributed generator technology can be used to enhance the Nigeria grid system.
