Meryem TAOUFIK, Bouamar BAGHDAD, Hassan EL HADI, Meriem LAGHLIMI
The aim of this study is to map lineaments in the Akreuch area, for a purpose of developing strategies for the rehabilitation or restoration of 10 abandoned quarries (former marl and limestone extractions). The methodology of this work is based on the use of Landsat 8 image, remote sensing enhancement techniques and GIS approaches. Three different methods were used to extract lineaments in the Akreuch region; Principal Component Analysis (PCA), directional filters and band combinations. A statistical analysis of the resulted lineaments was performed and show ascendancy of NW-SE and NE-SW directions with respectively 39% and 27% of the overall total of linear structures. These latter are totalizing 51 segments and a global length of 22000m. Results obtained join the main directions of digitized faults from the published geological map of the region, totalizing a length of 22625m. Lineaments are then superposed to the hydrographic network of the study area and illustrate the relation between fractures and water circulation.

Nelson C. Nkalu, Nathaniel E. Urama and Fredrick O. Asogwa
This study investigates the trade openness and exchange rate fluctuations Nexus in Nigeria using time series data covering from 1984 to 2013. The rational for this study is the realization that a viable exchange rate regime that is stable and predictable presents rich vista for economic growth and development through liberalization of trade. The study employed the Ordinary Least Square (OLS) method after a battery of preliminary investigations which include the Augmented Dickey-Fuller (ADF) test for stationarity, and pairwise correlation matrix technique. Our findings include among others that; trade openness impact positively about 59% magnitude on the exchange rate fluctuations or volatility in Nigeria. The causality test conducted using Granger causality procedure shows that there exist unidirectional causality between trade openness and exchange rate fluctuations without a feedback response.

A New Look to the Phenomenon of the Conservation of Energy and Emergence of Space-Time: An Accelerated Conservation of Energy
Agaddin Kh. Mamedov
In this paper, we suggest an alternative concept on non-uniform conservation of energy within the emerged non-uniform space-time manifold. This concept unifies all the interactions of nature within the asymmetric space-time manifold carrying the non-uniform conservation of energy. In the non-uniform energy conservation concept, energy and mass appear as two forms of the same unit as they are distributed differently within asymmetric space and time fields. Based on this concept, acceleration of the expansion of universe is the result of the acceleration of energy conservation. Space appears as the materialization phase of energy while time phase destroys everything material by returning the space matter to the initial state of energy. All the forces, which appear as the product of non-uniform energy-mass exchange interaction, are non-invariant while gravity, as a uniform force, carries conservation of energy to the initial state in the form of gravitational waves of superconductive fluid of the bosonic condensate. Therefore, gravitation is the reverse uniform flow of the electromagnetic waves due to the distortion of space-time frame and reversing to the initial state of its generation.
We present a model of space-time frame, which emerges from the non-uniform splitting of photons and became the fundamental building block of energy, matter and nature: the space-time frame generates ordinary matter, which in the energy-mass exchange interaction carries the accelerated conservation of energy. While energy is non-uniformly conserved within the space-time frame, unification of electromagnetism with the space-time frame became an obvious concept.
Keywords: Non-uniform conservation of energy, space-time, Higgs boson, generation of mass.

Sudradjat, Putri Irene Kanny and Sugiyanta
Palm oil is a major commodity for Indonesia as a major source of foreign exchange. Indonesia and Malaysia produce 86 per cent of Crude Palm Oil (CPO) world production. The productivity level of oil palm plantations managed by the small holders is a relative lower than that produced by a private or public companies. The low productivity due to lack of awareness of farmers on the benefits of using organic and inorganic fertilizers to increase it’s productivity. The objective of this research was to study and to determine organic fertilizer and NPK compound fertilizer rate and to obtain the best organic-NPK fertilizer combination to increase the effectiveness of the use of NPK compound fertilizer for the growth of two year old oil palm. The research was conducted at IPB-Cargill Teaching Farm Jonggol, Bogor West Java Indonesia, from April 2014 to March 2015. The experiment was arranged in a two factors randomized complete block design with three replications. The first factor consisted of 0, 45, and 90 kg organic fertilizer plant-1 year-1. The second factor was the NPK compound fertilizers rate consisted of 0, 3.45 and 6.9 kg plant-1 year-1. The result of the application organic fertilizer rate of 90 kg plant-1 year-1 increased leaf greenness, photosynthesis rate, and leaf nutrient content. The application of 6.9 kg NPK compound fertilizer plant-1 year-1 increased plant height, girth, frond production, leaf area, photosynthesis rate, leaf greenness, and leaf nutrient content of oil palm.

Korravarn Yodmai and Ratana Somrongthong
This cross-sectional study aims to assess the quality of life (QOL) and depression among the elderly in two districts in the Khonkean province, and to determine the factors associated with QOL. Two hundred people of aged between 60 – 75 years were randomly selected. QOL was measured with a WHOQOL-OLD questionnaire. Depression was measured with the Thai Geriatric Depression questionnaire. Logistic regression was used to determine the association between potential factors and QOL. The results showed that the QOL among older people was fair (55.0%), 44.5% of them have good QOL and only 0.5% of them have low QOL. Most of them (84.5%) have no depression, followed by mild depression (13%), moderate depression (2%), and severe depression (0.5%). It found that having a friend as a consultant for stress (OR = 12.36, 95% CI = 1.58 - 96.54) and access to information by mass media (OR = 2.74, 95% CI = 1.17 - 6.48) were associated with QOL. In contrast, being a member of the village committee (OR = 0.098, 95% CI = 0.02 - 0.51), inadequate monthly income and being indebted (OR = 0.400, 95% CI = 0.17 – 0.96) had a negative association with QOL.
