Usability Evaluation Metrics of Tourism Mobile Applications  [PDF]
Nor Laily Hashim, Ahmed Jama Isse
Journal of Software Engineering and Applications (JSEA) , 2019, DOI: 10.4236/jsea.2019.127016
Abstract: The use of mobile phone applications for our touristic activity is very common nowadays with the simplification of smartphones. The tourism mobile applications currently can be argued to be one of the most useful applications that can facilitate the movement of travelers. However, existing usability evaluation metrics are too general to be applied to a more specific application, such as mobile tourism application. Thus, the objective of the study is to propose usability evaluation metrics for tourism mobile applications. The study employs four phases: identifying problem and the objective, encompassing the techniques of developing usability measurement of metrics, selecting the usability metrics of tourism mobile application and conducting expert review and verification. The verification phase was conducted using expert review approach to measure the proposed metrics in terms of its consistency ease of use, understandable, verifiable and overall impression. The finding revealed that the proposed metrics have been well received by the experts in terms of consistency, ease to use, understandable, verifiability and overall impression. Finally, this study presented usability metrics for the tourism mobile applications that can be used by designers or usability practitioners in creating a useable mobile application for the tourists.
Non-native Species in Floodplain Secondary Forests in Peninsular Malaysia

EnvironmentAsia , 2010,
Abstract: There is an increasing concern of alien species invading our tropical ecosystems because anthropogenic land use can create conditions in which non-native species thrive. This study is an assessment of bioinvasion using a quantitative survey of non-native plant species in floodplain secondary forests in Peninsular Malaysia. The study area is known to have a long cultivation and settlement history that provides ample time for non-native species introduction. The survey results showed that introduced species constituted 23% of all the identified species, with seven species unique to riparian forest strips and eleven species unique to abandoned paddy fields and the remaining five species being shared between the two secondary forest types. There existed some habitat preferences amongst the species implying both secondary forests were potentially susceptible to bioinvasion. Fourteen species are also invasive elsewhere (PIER invasives) whereas fifteen species have acquired local uses such for traditional medicine and food products. The presence of these non-native species could alter native plant succession trajectory, and eventually leads to native species impoverishment if the exotics managed to outcompete the native species. As such, the findings of this study have a far-reaching application for the national biodiversity conservation efforts because it provides the required information on bioinvasion.

International Journal of Business and Management , 2009, DOI: 10.5539/ijbm.v3n11p35
Abstract: The purpose of the present study are first to analyze the differences in customer product preferences between Minangkabau and Chinese customers of Bank Nagari. Second, to determine factors affecting the use of Bank Nagari products among Minangkabau and Chinese customers. Third, to determine the Minangkabau and Chinese consumption models. The sample size amount 216 customers consisted of Minangkabau would amount to 162 persons and Chinese would amount to 54 persons. Systematic sampling is applied in this study as it often yields sampling error which is smaller. Data analysis technique is use consisted of factor analysis and logistic regression. The result of logistics regression test for credit and saving products show partial significance at probability level of .050 and result of Hosmer and Lemershow Goodnes-of-Fit test show total significance at .050. Test result of ANOVA indicates that there is ethnic difference in the consumption of financial products. Cultural factor, saving and credit perception very much determine the consumption of ethnic Minangkabau and Chinese.

Acta Crystallographica Section E , 2010, DOI: 10.1107/s160053681002742x
Abstract: The title compound, C19H15ClN2, adopts an E configuration with respect to the position of the chlorobenzene and diphenylamine groups on the C=N azomethine bond. The molecule is not planar, the central six-membered ring making angles of 12.26 (10) and 44.18 (11)° with the 4-chlorophenyl and phenyl rings, respectively. In the crystal structure, weak C—H...π interactions contribute to the stabilization of the packing.

Molecules , 2012, DOI: 10.3390/molecules17089043
Abstract: A new resveratrol dimer, acuminatol (1), was isolated along with five known compounds from the acetone extract of the stem bark of Shorea acuminata. Their structures and stereochemistry were determined by spectroscopic methods, which included the extensive use of 2D NMR techniques. All isolated compounds were evaluated for their antioxidant activity using the 2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) radical scavenging activity (RSA) and the β-carotene-linoleic acid (BCLA) assays, and compared with those of the standards of ascorbic acid (AscA) and butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT). All compounds tested exhibited good to moderate antioxidant activity in the DPPH assay (IC50s 0.84 to 10.06 mM) and displayed strong inhibition of β-carotene oxidation (IC50s 0.10 to 0.22 mM). The isolated compounds were evaluated on the Vero cell line and were found to be non-cytotoxic with LC50 values between 161 to 830 μM.

Research Journal of Environmental and Earth Sciences , 2012,
Abstract: The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship among malaria, climate variables and socio-economic factors in Sudan. The health production modification model was applied to examine the relations between climate variability (average temperature and average rainfall) and socio-economic factors, with the malaria rate per State in Sudan. The results of the model found that there are significant relations between the malaria rate, rainfall and water bodies, while there are no significant relations between malaria rate and temperature, percentages of the cultivated area to uncultivated, human development index and population density. Therefore, an in-depth study using monthly data and adding more control variables is needed.

Asian Social Science , 2013, DOI: 10.5539/ass.v9n8p107
Abstract: The diversity of audio visual technology has its own effect to audience to obtain message through formal and informal education. Arguably, having acquired such ability, an individual will be able to absorb various media messages. This research seeks to redefine model of audience evolution that proposed by The Donald McGannon Communication Research Center of new audiences by adding an audio visual technology as a meaning-making components in the interpretation of portal web television. The concept of audio visual technology was further developed by adding conceptualization of meaning making in interpreting media messages. This research assumes that audio visual technology input can be exposed and the skills can be transferred to the respondent in a formal setting. The researcher seeks to identify the relevance of audio visual technology in raising the level and capacity of new audience absorbs message. The significance between the audio visual technology via the meaning-making components and the increasing level of new audience absorbs message. A total of 80 first-year media students from University Kebangsaan Malaysia were randomly selected to participate in the experiment. The students were divided into two respective groups, the treatment and the control. Only the treatment group was exposed to audio visual selected interactivity queues such as selected programs, comment, chat rooms and online quizzes. Both groups were later shown online portal web TV (tonton.com.my) that produced by Media Prima Group. The selection of this online portal web TV is justified in it being the first online TV portal that fixed in all Media Prima’s TV station. Findings from the experimental method discovered that students in both groups showed different levels of new audience absorbs message. Findings revealed that individual interpretation of the online portal web TV was dependent on time-binding factors such as experience, knowledge and education as well as the unique cultural conditioning of each individual. The findings of this study suggested that the audio visual technology meaning making component is the distinguishing element for model of audience evolution introduced by The Donald McGannon Communication Research Center in the absorbs message of the new audiences.
