The purpose of this study is to find the legal basis on the different religious heritage in the opinion of the scholars and their implementation in the Religious Courts of Medan. There is a contradictory opinion between the opinions of Ulama and the Decision of Religious Judges of Medan. In accordance with the consensus opinion of the scholars, that people of different religions should not inherit each other. This provision is based on the hadith narrated by Imam Bukhari. However, children as different heirs of religion can receive the inheritance from both parents. The data collection of this research is interview, literature study and observation in Medan Religious Court. Based on the data obtained in the documents in the Religious Courts that the heirs of different religions are based on the Supreme Court Jurisprudence No. RI. 51.K / AG / 1999 dated September 29, 1999, which asserts that non-Muslim heirs are entitled to an inheritance based on a mandatory bequest that is equal in part to that of the Muslim heirs. Furthermore, Jurisprudence of the Supreme Court of the Republic of Indonesia no. 368.K / AG / 1995 dated July 16, 1998, states that non-Muslim girls are the same inheritance with the children's share of Muslim daughters by mandatory will.

Waste is a global issue and if not properly dealt with, poses threats to both public health and the environment. Storing of mixed wastes especially from homes, enables biodegradable materials to rot and decompose under improper, unhygienic and uncontrolled conditions. The study aimed at developing an eco-friendly waste bin for effective household solid waste storage, segregation and composting of the biodegradable wastes. Household solid waste composition was assessed from 32 households in three contrasting areas: Oluyole estate (Low-density area); Foko (High-density area) and Molete (Middle-density area), for four weeks to determine the quantity of wastes generated at household level. The generation rate for household solid waste was also determined and thereafter a waste bin (2ft X 2ft X 3ft) made from galvanized steel sheets that were purchased locally was fabricated and installed in one randomly selected household and tested for its suitability for storing and segregating solid wastes at source, with the biodegradable wastes converted into compost, using a family of 5 - 6 persons. The fabricated waste bin was made to store the waste for about 4 weeks and the compost quality observed at the end of 60 days. The analysis of the household waste composition showed food waste as the major component of the solid waste stream (39.9% - 48.6%). The household solid waste generation rate ranged between 0.45 - 0.60 kg/household/day. Compost was obtained from the biodegradable wastes after maturation, showing pH value of 9.28, nitrogen of 0.82%, organic carbon of 7.86%, potassium level of 43.61 Cmol/kg and available phosphorus 317.65 mg/g; indicating its suitability for both household gardening and farmland fertilizer. The time required for compost formation depends on the nature of the waste, the amount, and the ambient temperature. A major advantage of the bin as observed was that adequate control of the contents and process, prevent smell and fly nuisance commonly observed with other bins. The bin can conveniently be placed indoor or outdoor for use. For good housekeeping, the contents may be removed, the bin washed and set again for use. This type of onsite source segregation and composting waste bin is suitable for storage, segregation and composting of solid wastes at household level, as it prevents the attraction of vermin to wastes. The fabricated bin which can be made at affordable costs is quite easy to use and maintained. In addition, households can save the cost of engaging private service for their waste disposal as this bin allows for easy segregation of solid wastes at source in one device, including composting of the biodegradable materials. We recommend that the use of this bin should be adopted at household, community and institutional levels for management of solid waste, view to reducing the associated public health challenges.

A non-minutiae approach based on the combination of multiple transforms, namely, spatial, Fourier, discrete cosine and wavelet, is proposed for matching poor quality fingerprints. The features derived from the values and coefficients in these domains are richer and more distinctive in characterizing a fingerprint than a single domain. Results from experiments carried out on the National Standard of Institute and Technology special database 4 and Fingerprint Verification Competition databases show that the proposed feature set is useful for fingerprint matching.

The study measures the profitability of banks by exploring financial performance by concentrating profitability, the main objective of this study to find the role of the market structure in making profits. The study examines the effects of the market structure on banking profitability for this purpose the 24 banks of 6 countries using sample data, including emerging and advanced economies in the period 2006-2016. The study examines the two theories that provide bank profitability for the traditional structure-conduct-performance hypothesis (SCP) and relative market power (RMP). The results show that greater banking profitability in favor of the RMP theory has been highlighted in advanced economies due to greater market share. However, it is interesting to note that there is no evidence to support these theories in emerging economies. The results show that competition between banks varies from country to country in terms of intensity and the competition process. Some banks compete for greater efficiency and some compete less. The study shows that emerging banking markets are less competitive than advanced economies.

The current study investigates a new, low cost, locally available, eco-friendly bio-adsorbent, cotton (Gossypium herbaceum) dust, to remove reactive dyes from industrial effluent. The cotton dust used in the study was collected from the textile and manufacturing industry, where it was a waste product. Sunfix red, a reactive dye common in textile effluents, was used in the study to check the removal efficiency of the adsorbent. The effects of the variables- contact time, pH of dye solution, adsorbent dosage were investigated, and optimal experimental conditions were ascertained. The highest removal efficiency, 98.5%, was achieved at adsorbent/dye ratio by mass of 1.5:1 at pH 8 in 120 minutes contact time. Raw textile wastewater samples were treated with the adsorbent and it was found that 1.5 g of adsorbent converted 100 mL of deep colored wastewater to transparent water at pH 8. At the same time, the pH, BOD, COD, TS, TDS, TSS of the raw wastewater decreased while the DO level increased.

Southern end of the Tarkwa syncline hosts auriferous quartz pebble conglomerates belonging to the Banket Series of the Tarkwaian Group. Though gold grade generally increases as size and volume of quartz pebbles increase, reconciliation and tonnage of ore zones A, B, C and D at Block 7 and 8 Pit of the mine had progressed on assay grades with no connection to variation of textures. This paper identified the various ore textures in core of a borehole from Block 7 and 8 Pit and categorized the ore grades into low (0.5 to 1.0 g/t), medium (1.0 to 1.5 g/t), high (1.5 to 2.0 g/t) and very high (>2.0 g/t). This grade classification coincided with variation of textures in different ore zones such that generally, low grade ore had pebble sizes of 8.6 mm to 29 mm, poorly packed, poorly sorted and sub-angular to sub-rounded. Medium and high grade ores had pebble sizes up to 31 mm; moderate to well sorted, may be rounded and well packed. Very high grade ore had restricted pebble size (an average of 13.4 mm or 24.2 mm) and may be well-rounded. Though tonnage for Block 7 and 8 Pit were generally higher than mill head values, by using these classification, optimum gold recovery could be achieved if medium and very high grade ores were blended as high grade ore is mined and treated separately.

Stock Return is the remaining price of stocks above its buying price in which the higher its sales price, the higher its return obtained from an investor. The objective of the research was to find out and analyze the influence of the variables which came from the external company (inflation, interest rate, and rupiah exchange rate) and internal company (Return on Asset/ROA, Debt to Total Equity Ratio/DER, Non-Performing Loan/NPL, and Net Interest Margin) on stock return with Price to Book Value as moderating variable in the Banking Companies listed in BEI (Indonesia Stock Exchange). The data were analyzed by using e-views. Based on the result of the test with p-value > α, it was found that simultaneously inflation, interest rate, rupiah exchange rate, Return on Asset, Debt to Total Equity Ratio, Non-Performing Loan, and NIM (Net Interest Margin) had negative but significant influence on stock return. When p-value < α, it was found that partially inflation, interest rate, interest rate, and NIM had significant influence on stock return. The result of the test with the other variables partially with p-value > α, it was found that Exchange Rate, ROA, DER, and NPL did not have any significant influence on Stock Return. Based on the test using dummy variable with p-value > α, it was found that the type of firm ownership did not have any significant influence on Banking Stock Return. Meanwhile the result of regression coefficient, it was found that stock return of banking companies owned by the government had less influence than stock return of private banking companies toward the difference in each variable although based on paired t-test it was found that the variable of each homogenous population with the same stock return. The result of regression test with moderating variable showed that Price to Book Value moderate partially the influence of the variables of inflation, ROA, and NIM with Stock Return but not as moderating variabletoward the influence, partially, the variables of Interest Rate, DER, and NPL on Stock Return. The implication was that to get maximal; Stock Return, the Banking Companies should not only manage the internal financial ratios of a company well but also consider the external condition of the company because each company with its external and internal factors has significant influence on Stock Return.

The information of reproduction Index (RI) and its determinant factors of goat nut (Capra hircus) reared in coconut plantation in rural area is importantly needed in improving the further production. However, a publication of this topic is limited while the farmers have been practiced livelihood diversification throughout nut farming. Therefore, this study was aimed to investigate the RI of goat nut in a coconut plantation in Jeneponto District of Indonesia through a survey. There were 350 parent goats with 825 unweaned kids owned by 95 respondents in 4 sub-districts. Litter size (LS), mortality before weaning (MBW), and Kidding Interval (KI) were measured in this study. Data were analyzed descriptively and through linear regression with SPSS 20. Results show that reproduction index of goat nut was 2.06 kid/year, LS 1.72 kid/birth, MBW 9.37%, and KI 9.05 months. Moreover, the determinants (R2) of reproduction index was 0.5959. It means that 59.59% of RI was determined by LS, MbW, and KI. Meanwhile, the rest of reproduction index (40.41%) was determined by the other factors. T-test showed that LS and KI factors determine RI significantly (p<0.05), while MBW was not significant (p>0.05). Therefore, MBW is categorized as not deciding variable towards RI. This study will encourage Indonesian farming in terms of enhancing of feed quality and reproduction in coconut plantation area

This research introduces an optimal fuzzy Proportional Integral-Derivative (PID) controller for a solar power plant. The fuzzy PID controller is a discrete-time version of the conventional PID controller, which preserves the same linear structure of the proportional, integral, and derivative parts but has constant coefficient, self-tuned control gains. The constant PID control gains and other control parameter are optimized by using the multi objective Generic Algorithm (GA), thereby yielding an optimal fuzzy PID controller.

Ebb and flow hydroponic system is one of the hydroponics techniques that work by flowing the growth media with nutrient solution for a certain period time and the unabsorbed nutrient is then fed back to the tank. Normally, this hydroponics system uses a timer for the water filling process which causes inefficient used of nutrient solution. This paper proposes the ebb and flow hydroponics system based on fuzzy logic to control the working of pump in distributing the nutrient solution to the growth media. The control system was implemented using Arduino UNO with temperature sensor and soil moisture sensor as a transducer input and dc motors as actuators channeling nutrients to the planting media. The results confirm that design of fuzzy logic control is able to realize and working properly. There are several operating schemes obtained during testing at temperature of 30 C including: (1) fast-rotating of pump upon reaching moisture of 0.1% RH, (2) medium-rotating of pump at moisture is 30% RH, (3) slow-rotating of pump at moisture of 50% RH, and (4) pump-off at moisture of 74.2% RH. The experimental results have also been validated with Matlab simulation and manual mathematics calculation. The actual testing was performed by growing green bean plants resulting 22 cm height of plants with 14 leaves after 28 days.
