he melamine controversy that erupted during the last quarter of year 2008 brought people’s attention back to the debates between breastfeeding and the use of breast milk substitutes like commercial infant formula. This wasn’t the first time that infant formula had caused illnesses and even deaths to infants worldwide - hence the continuous campaign of World Health Organization (WHO) and UNICEF along with other breastfeeding advocates, for mothers to breastfeed their children at least until 6 months of age.
Infant feeding practices refer generally to meet the nutritional and immunological needs of the baby. A study of infant feeding practices was carried out on a sample of 100 mother and infant pairs. The results revealed that only 20% of mothers in the study currently exclusively breastfeed their babies. It also shows that socio-economic factors like mother’s work status, marital status and educational attainment had direct bearing on these practices. Employed mothers tend to cease from breastfeeding their babies and eventually stop and just resort to formula feeding as they go back to work. The study also showed that mothers who are married and living with their partners are more likely to breastfeed their infants than single mothers. Those with higher educational attainment resort more to formula feeding and mixed feeding than those with lower educational attainment. Health care professionals influence mothers the most when it comes to infant feeding decisions.

...Pag-aaral Sinabi ni Kyoshaba Martha (2005), sa kanyang papel na “Factors Affecting Academic Performance at Uganda Christian University”, binaggit niya na ang mga estudyanteng may mataas na puntos sa A lebel na admission at puntos sa admission ng diploma ay nakapagpresenta ng maayos habang yung mga may mahabang puntos ay hindi nakapagpresenta ng maayos. Ayon naman kay June Kaminski (2007) sa kanyang pananaliksik tungkol sa “The effect of classroom management on High school academic achievement” na yung mga estudyanteng kayang disiplinahin ng kanilang guro ay mga estudyanteng palaging pumapasok at mas didikado sa pag-aaral dahil gagawin talaga nila yung mga inuutos ng kanilang guro sa kanila at meron silang gabay kung ano yung ginagawa nila. Sabi ni Konstantine Papadakis (2013), sa kanyang papel na “How is a students’ learning affected by their school schedule.” na yung mga tipo ng iskedyul na meron ang estudyante ay may konting epekto lamang. May mga ibang estudyante naman na mas naniniwala na sila ay nakakapokus at saka making kung ano ang tipo ng iskedyul nila.

First Avenue, Highland Park, NJ 08904, 732846-6850 Eileen Stec, Instruction & Outreach Librarian, Douglass Library, Rutgers, New Brunswick, NJ 08901, 848-932-5009 Hannah Kwon, PhD Student, Rutgers SC&I, New Brunswick, NJ 08901 Abstract Despite the considerable attention paid to the need to increase the information literacy of high school students in preparation for the transition to college, poor research skills still seem to be the norm. To gain insight into the problem, library instruction environments of nineteen high schools were explored. The schools were selected based on whether their graduates did well or poorly on information-skills assignments integrated in a required first-year college course. The librarians in the nineteen schools were asked to characterize their working relationships with teachers, estimate their students’ information-literacy achievement, and provide data on their staffing and budgets. Findings suggest that school librarians are seldom in a position to adequately collaborate with teachers and that their opportunities to help students achieve information literacy are limited. Introduction The study reported in this paper was inspired by observations made by students in the Master’s in Library and Information......

Factors Affecting Study Habits

...the children. On the other hand, children, because of wisdom, have no other alternatives except to perform good or bad in the school. Oftentimes, they formulate their own study habits to cope up with the demands of their respective teachers in every class, at the same time, the demands of the family at home. All too often, children perform poorly in school simply because they lack good study habits. In many cases, students don't know where to begin, don't fully understand the material, are not motivated by it, or feel that there was too much work given to them with too little time to complete or study it. If their studying skills do not improve, these students will continue to test poorly and not perform to their fullest potential. Sorenson (1954) defined study habits as basically consist of effective methods of study. Study habits, a behavior that is repeated until it is automatic, find its way in the aspects of education. Good (1998) define the term study habits as: The student’s way of study whether systematic, efficient or inefficient etc”. Going by this definition it literally means that good study habit produces positive academic performance while inefficient study habit leads to academic failure. Ozmert (2005) emphasized the importance of environmental influence as a major factor in the development of students studying habit. In the same vein, Adetunji and Oladeji (2007) submit that the environment of most children is not conducive for studying;......
