Table 10 shows that out of 480 respondents, only 109 (22.7 percent) respondents said that they had become the victims of bully. 2.5 percent of them said that they were being bullied everyday, 2.7 percent said they were being bullied for 1 or 2 times a week, 5.6 percent said that they were often being bullied (1 to 2 times a month) and 11.9 said that they were seldom being bullied (1 to 2 times a year). It is clearly observed that the findings show a significant event in secondary school at BatuPahatdistrict to be in low percentage (Mean score = 1.41, Standard Deviation = 0.91). The report shows that the frequency of bully in secondary school in BatuPahat is lower than the findings done by Smith and Sharp(1994), who found that UK reported 4 percent of their students being bullied at least once in a week.
This study considered the Sembrong river catchment area due to its devastating effect when the Sembrong dam in neighboring Kluang district releases water into it. BatuPahatdistrict is located in the Johore state and bounded in the Malacca Strait in the west. The study area lies between latitudes 1°53’ N and 1°59’ N, and longitudes 103°07’ W and 103°11’ E.

Abstract—Malaysian government has actively been promoting use of environmental friendly material and green technologies for construction. One key area in green technology is Building Integrated Photovoltaic (BIPV). However, there are still plenty of drawbacks in the application of BIPV from going into full swing such as less encouragement in lower levels especially the construction industry, lack of coordination and consistency in policy and framework, inadequate investment in technical research and development, incomplete and unhealthy financing and investment system, high initial cost of investment and unproven and risky perception of BIPV. The purpose of this paper is to study the current perspective of Malaysian construction industry stakeholders, namely key professionals and developers on the application of BIPV. The scope of this study is around BatuPahat. This paper employs various approaches such as semi- structured interview and analyzing by thematic map. The respondents are local key professionals and developers in the BatuPahatdistrict. The results show a positive outcome from the respondent and there are a few key solutions voiced out by these respondents that could help BIPV to be one of the sustainable developments for Malaysian construction in the future.

This research was conducted to determine the level of workload born by the teachers in BatuPahatDistrict. This study involved five schools in the District of BatuPahat, the SMK Dato Seth, SMK Yong Peng, SMK Tun Ismail, SMK Senggarang and SMK Tunku Mahmud Iskandar. A total of 225 people the number of teachers were chosen as respondents in this study. The data were collected using a questionnaire consisted of four parts studied, (1) demography, (2) teacher workload, (3) teachers complaint and dissatisfaction and (4)actions taken by the administrator to reduce the workload. The data collected were then analyzed using descriptive statistics (mean, average and percentage). The findings showed that the teachers’ workload and complaints were scored at high level. Meanwhile the study showed that actions taken by the administrator to reduce the workload was scored at moderate mean level. Some suggestions were proposed to improve the situation based on the findings in this study.

Based on the findings in the study, it can be concluded that the gender, education level, type of helmet, travel distance, riding experience and the riding location are contributing factors in the compliance to safety helmet usage among motorcyclist in BatuPahat. Therefore, the road safety programs and enforcements teams should be more focused on male riders, lower educated riders, half shell helmet riders, 10 km and below distance, riding experience for 10 years above and rural riders based on their lower compliance to safety helmet usage.
This paper presents methods on how to determine the level of practice of usage of safety helmet among motorcyclist in BatuPahat and to identify the target group who are most likely to violate the safety helmet law among. A questionnaire study was carried out in urban and rural BatuPahat. A total of 185 respondents were interviewed and the data was analyzed using the statistics. Six variables were found to be significant at percent level (p<0.05): gender, education level, type of safety helmet, distance of travel, riding experience and location of travel. Practice of safety helmet usage among motorcyclist in BatuPahat was found to be higher for female riders, higher educated riders, full shell helmet users, travelling at a distance of 1 km to 10 km, riders having good practice and riders in the town area. All the variables above are contributing factors in the practice of helmet usage among motorcyclists in BatuPahat. Subsequently, the road safety programs and enforcement teams should be more focused on male riders, rider with low education levels, half shell helmet riders, 10 km and below distance, riding experience for 10 years above and rural riders based on their lower practice of using safety helmet.
BatuPahat is the 16th largest urban area in Malaysia by 2012 in terms of population with over 300,000 and known as “Northern Johor Shopping Paradise” due to the rapid development of shopping malls and hypermarkets . Hutan Lipur Soga Perdana is a green lung for BatuPahat located 5 km from the nearest town of BatuPahat through Jalan Kluang-BatuPahat. HLSP (N 01°50’.899” E 102°57’.627”) is part of Soga Forest Reserve which is a highland dipterocarp forest with rich diversity of flora and fauna. HLSP is an ideal destination for relaxation and recreational activity such as hiking and jungle trekking.
Wind blowing over the surface of water body will transfer energy to the water in the form of a surface current and by generating waves on the water surface . By that, wave and surface current flow are very important in determining the shear velocity. Wave and tides table 2006 were provided by Malaysia Metrological Department and Hydrography unit, Malaysian Royal Navy respectively. The annual tides data was collected from Kuala BatuPahat station (01 o 48’ North, 102°53’East) and used to determine the maximum depth of water. The maximum velocity of current flow was measured by current meter during the high tides.
Geophysical method with particular reference to seismic refraction method was suitable to be adopted in site investigation particularly on characterization purposes. Seismic refraction method was suitable in determination of near surface of geotechnical characterization [15, 16, 17, 18, 19]. The principle of seismic refraction exploration is measuring time taken for a wave to travel from one location to another location. The time taken is a function of elastic modulus of the material through which the wave travels. Layers below the earth surface was investigated using seismic wave (Body wave: Primary & Secondary wave or Surface wave: Rayleigh and Love wave) based on Snell’s law. Reflection and refraction of seismic wave will be produced when waves propagate in a medium (geo-materials) follow the elastic characteristic through all directions. The motion of wave’s particle will be recorded as a time function at a certain distance. Consequently, layers and structures in the subsurface will be determined. Hence, seismic refraction method was able to determine depth of soil over rock by measuring the first arrival time of wave (Compressive wave: P- wave) at different points along a line. Seismic refraction field measurement can be performed fast with less manpower. Field equipment mobilization and setup was easy due to its portable, lighter weight and can be dismantle into few components. Moreover, seismic refraction method able to provide large data coverage based on compressive wave distribution of 2-D and 3-D imaging. Furthermore, seismic refraction method was performed based on indirect test (non-destructive method) which explore the subsurface profile non-invasively thus consider sustainable to our environment. According to , lithology, porosity and interstitial fluids of geo-materials can influenced the success of interpretation of subsurface profile based on the seismic P-wave velocity contrast. Furthermore, the reliability performance of any individual geophysical methods will always depends on fundamental physical constraints, e.g. penetration, resolution, and signal to-noise ratio  and . Hence, this study focused on 3-D compressive wave imaging via seismic refraction method to investigate subsurface profile at Parit Seri Mendapat, BatuPahat, Johor Malaysia.
