ABSTRACT
Social interaction of the students within the classroom involves the teachers and their classmates where teaching and learning activities are being facilitated which need to be improved and addressed some factors that may somehow influence the learning process of the Marine Transportation and Marine Engineering Students in one private Asian university.
This study aimed to determine the difference on the attitude between Marine Transportation and Marine Engineering students towards the classroom social environment in terms of teachers as to character, subject mastery and teaching strategy; as well as in terms of their interpersonal relationships with other students. Descriptive type of research was utilized in the study. Results showed that the Marine Transportation and Marine Engineering students have positive attitude towards their teachers and peers. They viewed positively the way teachers facilitate the teaching and learning process and the way their colleagues communicate and socialize within the circle of classmates. They maintain constructive view of seeing each other every day with genuine interest in the activities of each member of the class. Keywords: Maritime,…...

“the Effect of Study Habits of Selected Marine Student to Their Academic Performance”

...SELECTED MARINE STUDENT TO THEIR ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE” A Research Paper Presented to the College of Arts Department In Partial Fulfillment of the Requirements for the Course English Presented To Sir. Joel E. Payapa, Ed.D Presented By Cercado, Joshua Kim T. Daniel, John Daniel M. De Guzman, John Odilon T. March 15, 2013 Chapter 1 THE PROBLEM AND ITS BACKGROUND Introduction The extent of student’s learning in academics may be determined by the grades a student earns for a period of learning has been done. It is believed that a grade is a primary indicator of such learning. If a learner earns high grades it is concluded that they may also have learned a lot while low grades indicate lesser learning. However, many experiences and studies found out that there are also several factors that would account for the grades. No single factor can be definitely pointed out as predicting grades. It has been an inter play of so many factors – gender, IQ, study habits, age, year level, parent’s educational attainment, social status, number of siblings, birth order, etc. In fact, almost all of existing environmental and personal factors are a variable of academic performance. However, at this point in time, there searchers would like to investigate the possible relationship of study habits and the factors affecting it to the academic achievement of under graduate education student of......

Marines

...the Marine Corps Once this semester is over I will be leaving for Marine boot camp in Parris Island, South Carolina. There are many reasons of why this decision is made by myself and many other Americans across the nation. The Corps provides many valuable benefits and is a great experience for young men and women and can lead to many job opportunities in the future. Pride is a word generated as soon as you become an athlete or even put in effort to your school, work when you are young. In today’s society some American’s strive to do something that is bigger than them the Marine Corps assists in providing that. The pride of belonging to the Marines is something great and that can never be taken away from an individual who has been apart of this great fighting force. They say “Once a Marine, always a Marine” unlike a lot of other branches of military. When someone retires from the air force for example they usually just tell people “I was in the military.” Also in no way, shape, or form am I saying the Marines are above everyone else, it’s great to be in the service, and protect your country, that was just an example of what I have heard from past veterans. The Marines provide the toughest, most intense boot camp out of all of the different branches, the twelve and a half week transformation brings out a whole new warrior and ultimately a better person than what you were before. When you get out of boot camp you feel as if you are on top of the world is what past marines......

...MBA 623 United States Marine Corps The organization we chose for our project is the United States Marine Corps. We believe this branch of service can benefit greatly with the help of organizational behavior concepts. We will mainly be focusing on the relationship between the recruiter and the poolee (person soon to be enlisting). The process of enlisting can be long and tedious and there are a lot of details that should not be overlooked. When a civilian enters the recruiter’s office and they both meet for the first time, it is one of the most important moments. This is where the civilian feels out the recruiter and the recruiter feels out the civilian and shapes the psychological contract. When the psychological contract is beginning to form in this case it is important for both parties to gain each other’s trust in order for the relationship to flourish. Most recruiters are very truthful and will not violate the contract, but a lot of the recruiters just want to get that extra number to ship out. The recruiter will say and offer things to the poolees that are false and misleading. This process can also work the other way also; the poolee could be lying to the recruiter and mislead him as well. Some other problems that exist are cultural issues, such as, language and non-verbal gestures. It is important for both parties to be relaxed and ask questions. During the initial interview and throughout the process it is important for both parties to utilize active......

Marine Mammals

...Marine Mammal Conservation Sharon Herzog COM/172-Elements of University Composition and Communications II July 28, 2013 Timothy Toole Marine Mammal Conservation There are 29 marine mammals on the endangered and threatened list produced by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The US Fisheries and Wildlife foundation also have a list that includes certain seals, sea otters, and polar bears. There are many threats to marine mammals. These threats include dangers posed by humans and the environment. There are laws in place to help protect marine mammals from further dangers. Captivity has brought forth much controversy as to dangers it may pose to marine mammals. Marine mammal habitat conservation may be the only answer to protecting marine mammal life. There are five characteristic that an animal must possess to be classified as a mammal. These characteristics include being warm-blooded, having hair or fur, having the ability to breathe air through lungs, the ability to bear live young, and the ability to nurse their young with milk produced by mammary glands (The Marine Mammal Center, 2013). Marine mammals also have a thick layer of fat called blubber that they rely on to keep them warm in the water. They have the ability to store up extra oxygen to aid them in staying under water for extended periods of time. Marine mammals spend a lot of time swimming, their bodies are streamlined to help them swim faster. One of......

Pensacola Marines

...CIVIES Esprit de Corps of AMS-2 Marines By the students of AMS-2 Aircraft Maintenance Squadron 2, NAS Pensacola has had a rough past, a restricted present, and an unprecedented future. Over a year ago, before Pensacola’s restriction was put into place, the Marine-Students took place in multiple dishonorable actions, and caused many problems both on and off base. In an effort to stop these mistakes and prevent them, a restriction was placed across all of MATSG-21. Now over a year later, this restriction appears to be rather successful, with far less Marines getting into trouble. However we disagree with this, as many Marines continue to get into trouble, and we see the Marines here having no incentive or motivation to improve or correct this. We believe that by authorizing a status for the “excellent” Marines to have an upgraded liberty policy, the Marines in Pensacola will have an incentive to be that “excellent” Marine, do they right thing, stay out of trouble, and do well in class. In the status, that we will call “Condition 3,” Marines could achieve something similar to the Navy’s “Phase 4”. The sailors in our classes all have big plans of staying out of trouble and maintaining grades because they have incentives. They are motivated because if they do well they get better liberty and even promoted. While on the Marines side of the class, at least in I strand, they have no motivation other than maybe get top of class and get a positive entry into their records. It...

Marine Wildlife

...to new destination areas, the increased levels of ‘green awareness’ and the search for more sustainable alternatives to mass tourism resulted in the tendency of people to travel to more remote destinations. More environmentally conscious forms of tourism are therefore flourishing and the tendency towards shorter but more frequent trips permitted the rise in domestic tourism rates (Trew and Cockerell 2002). As according to the Tourism Alliance (2012) in fact, it has been possible to highlight that in 2011 the inbound tourism revenue grew at over 5 times the rate of the economy as a whole, while it has been reported that domestic tourism revenue ended the year 2011 at 14% higher rates than 2010 (Tourism Alliance 2012). 2.0 The Growth of Marine and Wildlife tourism While many established resorts and destinations remain popular, holidays “off the beaten track”, or of special interest, are indeed capturing an increasing share of the market. Wildlife tourism, also referred to as ‘Nature tourism’ is thus increasing in popularity across the world with tourists seeking new experiences that will enable them to explore new ecosystems and their inhabitants. Wildlife tourism is generally referred to as “tourism undertaken to view and/or encounter wildlife” (Newsome, Dowling and Moore 2005). Furthermore, it is explained that wildlife tourism can take place in a range of settings, from captive, semi-captive, to in the wild and it encompasses a variety of interactions from passive......

Marine Pollution

...Marine pollution resulting from all products released into the seas and oceans as a result of human activity. This pollution comes in the marine environment by the vector of water ways, winds, air at low altitude or is directly discharged into the sea.  Generality on the main pollutants: • Chemical pollution includes all minerals and organic wastes (fertilizers, detergents, hydrocarbons or phosphate) • Thermal pollution leads to increased water temperatures by discharges from nuclear or thermal power. • Organic pollution is the sole fact of sanitary sewage or organic waste industries (food, paper, etc.)  State of the marine environmental situation The human imprint is evident everywhere: • The oceans and seas are relatively dirty • Coastal areas are affected: habitats are being destroyed by urban development and tourism (mangroves, beaches, coral reefs, shoreline erosion)  Scope of pollution worldwide. • increased salinity in some rivers due to the discharge, • Acidification of rain water due to industrial discharges, • Dystrophisation water bodies (ponds, lakes, seas ...) and rivers.  Impact: • Overall deterioration in the quality and productivity of the marine environment Several land-based activities contribute to release of contaminants into the marine environment: • Via air emissions • carried by streams, rivers, outfalls, industrial effluents, sewage, leach ate (leachate) The majority of the contaminants remain in......

Meli Marine

...44 2 6 APRIL 19, 2012 RICHARD G. HAMERMESH SUNRU YONG Meli Marine It was past midnight, but David Tian, CEO of Singapore-based Meli Marine, could not sleep. The next board meeting was just two weeks away in early February 2008. Edwin Chang, the founder of the company and chairman of the board, had called earlier to hear Tian’s assessment of a potential acquisition. “This could be the biggest turning point in Meli’s history,” Chang had said. “Are we ready to become a global player?” Tian had to admit that he had not yet reached a conclusion. The acquisition under consideration was of the vessel assets of an indirect competitor, Teeh-Sah Holdings. Teeh-Sah operated a container carrier business in the trans-Pacific, Asia-to-North America shipping lanes. It had announced in late 2007 that it would exit the vessel operations business to concentrate on its much larger terminal-management operations, and it was selling 16 ships with an average capacity of 4,500 TEUs1 each. Meli Marine was a leading container carrier in the intra-Asia market, but it had no presence on the major Asia-North America sea lanes. Initial discussions with Teeh-Sah indicated that pricing for the 16 vessels would be attractive. The question that David Tian had not yet answered was whether entering the Asia-North America market was the right move for Meli Marine. The Container Shipping Industry The cargo shipping industry provides the links required for global commerce, making......

...Target) can dictate terms and prices as they constitute the bulk of trans ocean freight services. And companies, to avoid losing the business to rivals, negotiate the prices. - Concentration of manufacturing in Asia means ships leave from Asia at full capacity, and charge high prices; on the other hand, they depart from USA/Europe half empty and charge a fraction of the cost. Ans 2) How does Meli marine compete -New CEO trimmed down size of its fleet, negotiated long term contracts with charters; sold old, inefficient ships. - Deal with a limited set of customers and focus on a limited good instead of shipping each and everything they can get their hands on. - They diversified from being a spoke and feeder line to an intra-Asia line service and also started to provide their own door to door, freight forwarding service; this allowed them to take charge of logistics from the start to the end. - Introduced specialized insulated and refrigerated containers for shipping of chemicals and perishable foods and soon became the market leader in this segment. - Meli Marine focused on building a personal relationship with clients which created a pool of loyal customers...

Studyhavits Among Marine Students

...CHAPTER 4 Analysis and presentation of data 4.1 INTRODUCTION This chapter discusses the data analysis and findings from 107 questionnaires completed by adolescent mothers who visited one of the two participating well-baby clinics in the Piet Retief (Mkhondo) area during 2004. The purpose of this study was to identify factors contributing to adolescent mothers’ non-utilisation of contraceptives in the area. The objectives of the study were to identify adolescent mothers’ • knowledge, attitudes and beliefs regarding contraceptives • knowledge about reproductive issues prior to menarche • knowledge about reproductive issues prior to their pregnancies • reasons for non-utilisation of contraceptives • requirements for using contraceptives effectively to prevent unplanned pregnancies • individual perceptions, modifying factors and variables affecting their contraceptive utilisation Questionnaires were given to adolescent mothers aged 19 or younger when their babies were born. After signing the consent form indicating their willingness to participate in the study, these adolescent mothers completed the questionnaires. The signed consent form was folded and put into a separate box from the anonymously completed questionnaires to ensure anonymity. In this way no signed consent form could be linked to any specific completed questionnaire. A total of one hundred and seven (107) adolescent mothers completed questionnaires at the two participating well-baby clinics between 12 July......

Marine Mammals

...Marine-mammal facilities are part of a billion-dollar industry built on the suffering of intelligent, social beings who are denied everything that is natural and important to them. Sadly, marine parks open their doors every summer to visitors who watch dolphins, beluga whales, and orcas perform their majestic tricks; they’re amazing, stunning, and very “enjoyable”… However, it might only seem fun to you, the marine animals who are performing the tricks themselves have to disagree, but, the question is, do you know the truth behind all this “joyful fun”? Marine animals in captivity is wrong. It needs to stop if it only means pain and abuse for our entertainments’ sake. I have many convincing reasons to support my opinion, including how captivity causes many health problems in marine mammals, these helpless creatures suffer from boredom, most of these poor innocent creatures face abusive treatment by their caretakers, thus shortening their life span by quite a lot, and marine mammals breed very poorly in captivity with very high infant death rates. So keep an open mind and choose to spend your money on family activities this summer that do not contribute to animal suffering. For starters, many wonder first where they all come from, or more importantly how they capture them. Dolphins are sometimes purposely injured by the capture teams to force the rest of their pod to stay behind into the trap, due to that dolphins never leave behind sick or injured friends or family members.......

Marine Conservation

...Discuss one management practice for sustainability and conservation of natural resources in that ecosystem The protection of marine species and ecosystems in oceans and seas worldwide is marine conservation. Marine conservation involves the protection and restoration of species, populations and habitats while mitigating human activities such as overfishing, habitat destruction, pollution, whaling and other issues that affect marine life and habitats. The goal of marine conservation is accomplished by enforcing and creating laws, such as the Endangered Species Act and Marine Mammal Protection Act. It is also done by establishing marine protected areas, studying populations through conducting stock assessments and mitigating human activities with the goal of restoring populations. A recent practice that has become popular in marine conservation is the use of Marine Conservation Agreements (MCAs). Through recent years of research, Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) have realized that the creation of formal protected areas may not be adequate enough to protect ocean and coastal biodiversity, particularly in areas where rights have already been contracted to specific owners and users. In order to address this, NGOs have increased their usage of MCAs to complement other marine and coastal protection efforts. Marine Conservation Agreements consist of any formal or informal understanding in which one or more parties commit to delivering explicit economic incentives in......
