Person's desire to do a pregnancy examination is determined by the service place that suits the tastes and facilities owned by it. Until now, the utilization of antenatal care by pregnant women is still low (Mardiana, 2014). The purpose of the study is to analyze factors affecting the utilization of antenatal care and delivery place in Surabaya city based on the preferences and choice theory. Type of survey research is cross sectional approach, the population is mothers who have children aged 1-12 months in Surabaya. The large sample of 250 mothers who have children aged 1-12 months in 2013 is taken by simple random sampling technique. Variables of the research are the preference elements and steps, choice elements and steps, utilization of antenatal care and delivery place. Data were collected through questionnaires and secondary data were then analyzed with descriptive statistics in the form of a frequency distribution, shown by the schematic diagram. The result showed that the preference elements and steps showed almost half (42.9%) desire to give birth in a health care because of information got from someone else, while the choice element and step shows the bulk (57.1%) of the criteria of delivery place chosen is a safe, comfortable and cheap delivery place, the labor place which is the main choice most (57.1%) is cheap, comfortable, close. Conclusion of the research based on the preferences and choice theory can be found three (3) new theories, they are preferences become choice, preferences do not become choice, choice is preceded by preferences.
Author Keywords:- Preferences, Choice, health care.

The availability of financial resources is an important element in impacting the success of a planning process for an effective physical planning. The extent to which however, they are articulated in the process remained elusive both in scholarly and public discourse. The objective of this study wastherefore, to examine the extent to which financial resources affect physical planning. In doing so, the study examinedwhether financial resources were adequate or not to facilitate planning processes in Paidha. According to the study findings,budget prioritization and ceilings are still a challenge in Paidha Town Council. This is partly due limited level of knowledge of physical planning among the officials of Paidha Town Council. As a result, there were no dedicated budget line for routine inspection of physical development plan compliance and enforcement tools in Paidha. In conclusion, in addressing uncoordinated patterns of physical development that characterize Uganda‟s urban centres, a critical starting point ought to be the analysis of physical planning process. The research of this kind is not only significant to other emerging urban centres facing poor a road network, mushrooming informal settlements and poor social services including poor pattern of residential and commercial developments but also to all institutions that are involved in planning these towns. Knowing the extent of need for financial influences in planning may assist local authorities to take the processes of planning seriously which will help enhance the sustainable development of emerging urban centres including Paidha.

The Effect of Orientation of Vortex Generators on Aerodynamic Drag Reduction in Cars

One of the main reasons for the aerodynamic drag in automotive vehicles is the flow separation near the vehicle's rear end. To delay this flow separation, vortex generators are used in recent vehicles. The vortex generators are commonly used in aircrafts to prevent flow separation. Even though vortex generators themselves create drag, but they also reduce drag by delaying flow separation at downstream. The overall effect of vortex generators is more beneficial and proved by experimentation. The effect depends on the shape,size and orientation of vortex generators. Hence optimized shape with proper orientation is essential for getting better results.This paper presents the effect of vortex generators at different orientation to the flow field and the mechanism by which these effects takes place.

Property Development Risk: Case Study In Indonesia

Property development makes a significant contribution to the Indonesia property industry and economy. Decision makers have very rarely all the relevant information they need in order to analyze all aspects and make the optimal decision. Property development is always long-term and it is therefore very important to ensure that the final decision is optimal or very close to being optimal. Some important information may not be known at certain point and it might have a very significant negative impact on the final decision. The objective of this research is to analyze this problem and offer possible solutions and formulate several recommendations. From a survey of leading property developers in indonesia, the importance of 71 property development risk factors is assessed. The most important risk factors; political risk, technological risk, social risk and economic risk were being seen as having the highest overall risk level in the property development process.

Need for a Gender Inclusive Planning - Bhubaneswar City, Odisha (India)

The rapid growth of urbanization is a relatively recent phenomenon. Urbanization and Migration processes are basically configured by gender roles and relations. Rapid urbanisation leading to urban sprawl results in developments in the peripheral areas, which further results in long travelling distance to work places, recreational and other facilities. These sprawl developments in turn lack densification, mixed use developments, public services and safe streets or pedestrian walkways which fuels to the rising levels of insecurity and sexual violence to women in cities. The issue of women's safety at public spaces in Bhubaneswar has come in sharp focus over the past five years, with increasing media coverage and public outrage at violence faced by women of all social classes and age groups. This paper highlights two main objectives. Firstly, better understanding of gender sensitive issues, their concerns and safety measures in the urban planning and design. Secondly, encouraging policy makers, planners and urban designers to integrate gender perspective planning strategies as a pre-requisite factor in the policies, programmes and decision making process so as to create a safer, sustainable and inclusive urban development.

Firefly algorithm is one of the emerging evolutionary approaches for complex and non-linear optimization problems. It is inspired by natural firefly‟s behavior such as movement of fireflies based on brightness and by overcoming the constraints such as light absorption, obstacles, distance, etc. In this research, firefly‟s movement had been simulated computationally to identify the best parameters for spur gear pair by considering the design and manufacturing constraints. The proposed algorithm was tested with the traditional design parameters and found the results are at par in less computational time by satisfying the constraints.

A Smart City could be depicted as a place, logical and physical, in which a crowd of heterogeneous entities is related in time and space through different types of interactions. Any type of entity, whether it is a device or a person, clustered in communities, becomes a source of context-based data. Energy awareness is able to drive the process of bringing our society to limit energy waste and to optimize usage of available resources, causing a strong environmental and social impact. Then, following social network analysis methodologies related to the dynamics of complex systems, it is possible to find out, emergent and sometimes hidden new habits of electricity usage. Through an initial Critical Mass, involving a multitude of consumers, each related to more contexts, we evaluate the triggering and spreading of a collective attitude. To this aim, in this paper, we propose a novel analytical model defining a new concept of critical mass, which includes centrality measures both in a single layer and in a multilayer social network.

The dynamics of discrete-time prey-predator model are investigated. The result indicates that the model undergo a flip bifurcation which found by using center manifold theorem and bifurcation theory. Numerical simulation not only illustrate our results, but also exhibit the complex dynamic behavior, such as the periodic doubling in period-2, -4 -8, quasi- periodic orbits and chaotic set. Finally, the feedback control method is used to stabilize chaotic orbits at an unstable interior point.
