This research studied the morphology and COD (Chemical oxygen demand) reduction efficiency of marine actinomycete <em>Streptomyces indiaensis </em>in order to create a guideline for using Actinomycete in wastewater treatment for coastal aquaculture. </p> <p><strong>Methods:</strong> The morphology of actinomycete <em>S. indiaensis</em> isolated from a mangrove forest was studied using Gram’s staining method and observed under a light microscope. Actinomycete was cultured in standard ISP2 medium and water from a Pacific white shrimp pond. Then, actinomycete <em>S. indiaensis</em> was used to reduce COD in water from the shrimp pond and compared with not using actinomycete <em>S. indiaensis</em>.</p> <p><strong>Results: </strong>Gram’s staining test revealed that marine actinomycete <em>S.indiaensis</em> is filamentous gram-positive bacteria. Marine actinomycete <em>S. indiaensis</em> could grow in a standard ISP2 medium better than in the shrimp pond water. Thereafter, a reduction of the COD in shrimp pond water was performed. The initial COD concentration in shrimp pond water was 662 mg/L. The use of <em>S. indiaensis</em> was able to reduce the amount of COD in the shrimp pond water in a greater manner than without <em>S. indiaensis</em>. The use of actinomycete had complete COD treatment within 21 days, whereas the comparison without the use of actinomycete could be treated at 78%. The results from this experiment showed that a marine actinomycete</p> <p><em>S. indiaensis</em> was able to reduce COD faster than the native bacteria in the shrimp pond water.</p> Janjarus Watanachote, Mayurin Laoarun, Maliwan Kutako, Pakawan Setthamongkol, Nongnuch Rungsawang, Paveena Tapaneeyaworawong, Yutthaya Yuyen Copyright (c) 2022 Journal of Vongchavalitkul university Thu, 22 Dec 2022 00:00:00 +0700 The Effects of Pregnancy Prevention Program by Application of Motivation Information Self and Social Support Concept (MISS model) among Vocational School Female Students in Nakhon Ratchasima Province <p><strong>Objective: </strong>This quasi-experimental research aimed to study the effects of pregnancy prevention programs through the application of motivation, information, self-care, and social support (MISS model) among vocational female students in Nakhon Ratchasima province.</p> <p><strong>Methods:</strong> The study involved 89 female vocational certificate year 1 student. 47 students were in the experimental group and 42 students were in the control group.

The water pumping system in this research consisted of 3 parts: a coil pump, a water wheel, and an oil drum float. The coil pump was 1.1 m in diameter. The coil was made from a hose, with a diameter of 0.0254 m. The water wheel was 1.5 m in diameter. The 10 blades of the water turbine, each of which blade had a semi-circle shape at 0.16 m in diameter, and the length of the blade was 0.8 m, were installed on the water wheel. The oil drum float, used 8 oil tanks with a capacity of 18 liters to make a float for supporting the water wheel and the coil pump, had a total weight of 80 kg. The construction cost was 4,000 baht. In this study, Wang-Nane River, Makluea Mai subdistrict, Sung Noen district, Thailand was chosen as the place to study. &nbsp;</p> <p><strong>&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;Results:</strong> The experimental results showed that at the same head of water, the varied amount of the water pumped depended on the number of coil set. The 3 coil-pump set could pump more amount of water than the 2-coil pump set, while the rotational speeds of the 2 and 3 coil pump sets were not much different. When the pumping height increased, the amount of water pumped decreased. For the worthiness, the break-even point of the water pumping by coil pump working with a water wheel is 6 years.</p> Yuttachai Keawsuntia Copyright (c) 2022 Thu, 22 Dec 2022 00:00:00 +0700
