The Pucangan and Kabuh Formation in Central and East Java

Johan, Dasapta Erwin Irawan (corresponding), Rubiyanto Kapid (2016)
The East Java northern basin, which is located in Indonesia archipelago has become a consideration by earth scientists, among others, because of the existence of the hominid fossil and other vertebrate fossils which is found in some quaternary sediments. The hominid and other vertebrate fossils are found in the Kendeng zone, mostly come from the Pucangan and Kabuh formations which distribute from Central to East Java. However, not all formations can contain vertebrate fossils as well as hominid. Therefore, we want to know what factors influence the concentration of vertebrate fossils in those formations. On behalf of the study, there are three locations, will be reviewed namely Sangiran, Ngawi, and Mojokerto. The study indicates that vertebrate and hominid fossils are mainly accumulated in the continental sediment like lacustrine and fluvial system. In this case, Sangiran and Ngawi B are the most promising sites for hominid because of their paleoenvironmental and paleogeographical setting as an island in the Early-Middle Pleistocene. Some parts of Kabuh Formation in Mojokerto also provide possibilities, especially the unit which has continental deposition.

Female Secondary education is imperative for improved health outcomes in Nigeria

We performed statistical analysis of the 2013 Nigerian National Bureau of Statistics report to study factors linked to improved health outcomes. Female secondary education was identified as critical for improving health indices such as a reduction in infant and maternal mortality. Interestingly, other development indices such as female primary school, access to improved water sources, and sanitation services were not statistically associated with improved health outcomes. While national averages suggest recent improvements in health of the Nigerian populace, these averages do not give provide a complete picture due to the great diversity in the country. Our analysis reveals a polarized healthcare landscape with a dramatic trend of poor health outcomes for Nigerians living in states with Sharia law, which coincidentally have the lowest rates of female secondary education, while southwestern Nigerian states with appreciable Muslim population and high levels of female secondary school education do not have the same poor health outcomes. Our analysis revealed that usage of available public health services was strongly correlated to female secondary education, which supports that the education of the girl child to at least secondary school is imperative for improved health outcomes in Nigeria.

Modelo de estimação de custos do transporte urbano de cargas com base na vulnerabilidade da rede viária

ResumoVulnerabilidade é um atributo de desempenho que busca inferir o impacto que a obstrução total ou parcial de uma via reflete no desempenho da rede de transportes. Tal conceito permite analisar tanto a resiliência da rede como os custos incorridos em cenários distintos para diversos atores envolvidos. Este artigo objetivou propor uma metodologia de análise e mensuração dos custos da vulnerabilidade associada ao transporte de cargas. Para isso, desenvolveu-se um modelo de rede viária com 15 arcos e 10 nós, baseado no equilíbrio do usuário, com a finalidade de realizar simulações de falhas nos arcos, além de mensurar os riscos de haver obstruções. O modelo contendo os custos e risco por cenário apresentou desempenho satisfatório para a representação do fenômeno e para a tomada de decisão.
