  This study aims to determine the pattern of dissemination, distribution model and estimation of SO2 and CO gas emission concentration derived from the Tello diesel engine with a dynamic model approach. The design of this research is descriptive quantitative with Gaussian Model approach and dynamic system model. The study was conducted at PLTD Tello Kota Makassar by collecting secondary data. For model distribution and estimation of SO2 and CO pollution using Gaussian Model and dynamic modeling with Stella. Population in this research is data of emission emission parameters generated by Tello’s steam power plant influenced by atmospheric stability, wind direction and velocity so as to obtain concentration of pollutant by using Gaussian calculation sample sample is SO2 concentration concentration and CO PLTD Tello contained in monitoring report on RKL&RPL implementation for 2012-2017. The results of the dominant area of research are the impact of pollution from the Tello diesel power plant based on the dominant wind direction during 2012-2016 is the Northwest part of the Tello steam power plant at a height of 1 m above the ground with a distance of 500, 1, 500, 2, 500 and 4,000 m of the Tello diesel powered TTL Aspol, Panaikang, Pampang and Rappokalling. Total SO2 and CO emission concentrations derived from Tello PLTD during 2012-2016 in each location at 1 m above ground level with a distance of 500 m, i.e., Aspir Tello SO2 1.395 and CO 1.162 μg/m3, a distance of 1,500 m of SO2, SO2 1.247 and CO 1.039 μg/m3 2,500 m distance of Pampang 0.878 μg/m3 and CO 0.7317 μg/m3 and a distance of 4,000 m of Rappokalling 0.6363 μg/m3 and CO 0.5303 μg/m3 from the pollutant source of the chimney PLTD Tello. The estimated concentration of Sulfur Dioxide (SO2) and Carbon monoxide (CO) gas emissions based on 12 month dynamic model simulation (2018) is increasing every time until July 2018 at each of four location points at 1 m above the surface soil with a distance of 500 m of Aspol Tello SO2 0.26065 μg/m3 and CO 0.21530 μg/m3, 1,500 m distance of Panaikang SO2 0.04447 μg/m3 and CO 0.03134 μg/m3, distance 2500 m of Pampang SO2 0.01760 μg/m3 and CO 0.00938 μg/m3 and a distance of 4,000 m of Rappokalling SO2 0.00740 μg/m3 and CO 0.00611 μg/m3 from the source of the bursts of the Tello steam power plant with the rate of increase in the emission concentration of Asp2 SO2 0.0053 and CO 0.0044 times, SO2 04061 times and CO 0.0004 times, Pampang SO2 0.00021 times and CO 0.000073 times and Rappokalling SO2 0.000078 times and CO 0.0000064 times every month. The concentration of SO2 and CO emissions generated by the Tello steam power plant during 2012-2016 is still far below the ambient air quality standard (South Sulawesi Governor Decree No. 69 Year 2010) in each location at a height of 1 m above ground level, i.e., Aspol Tello 0-1.39 μg/m3, Panaikang 0-1.247 μg/m3 Pampang 0-0.878 μg/m3 and Rappokalling 0-0.6363 μg/m3. So, it can be said that the four areas are still included in the air quality is quite healthy.

  Beta-carotene, one component of palm oil, is a precursor of vitamin A and functions as pro-vitamin A; therefore, palm oil has the potential to be used as a food source to prevent the occurrence of vitamin A deficiency (VAD). This study aimed to determine the effect of a red palm oil emulsion on the plasma retinol levels of primary school children in a coastal area of Makassar City. Quasi-experimental research with a pre-test post-test design was conducted in the Cambaya Elementary School Sub District of Ujung Tanah Makassar City and involved 36 sixth-grade students who were divided into three treatment groups; each group consisted of 12 students. The first group was given 5 mL/day of red palm oil emulsion for one month. The second and the third group were given 10 and 15 mL/day, respectively, for one month. The plasma retinol levels were measured before and after one month of administration of the red palm oil emulsion. The research began with a hedonic test to determine the level of preference and consumer acceptance of the emulsion product and it continued with the intervention stage. The results showed that the most preferred emulsion product was an emulsion of red palm oil using a melon flavor. Giving the emulsion at a dose of 10 and 15 mL/day leads to a significant effect on the plasma retinol levels, which is characterized by a significant difference between the mean plasma retinol levels before and after the intervention (p<0.05); administration of the emulsion at a dose of 5 mL/day did not provide a significant effect, although it appears there was an increase in plasma retinol levels after the intervention. Finally, it can be concluded that the red palm oil emulsion did have an effect on the plasma retinol levels of primary school children.

  Background and Objectives: The incidence of obesity in adolescents has increased over the last decade. Obesity is associated with higher levels of triglycerides (TGs) and high-density lipoprotein (HDL). This study evaluated TG and HDL levels in overweight adolescents at a senior high school in Makassar. Materials and Methods: This study used an analytic survey with a cross-sectional design to collect data from 53 adolescents. TG and HDL measurements were carried out through laboratory evaluation. Data was processed and analyzed using univariate analysis. Results: Abnormal TG levels were found in 20.8% of obese adolescents and in 17.2% of over weight adolescents. A higher percentage of obese adolescents (47.8%) had abnormal HDL levels compared to overweight adolescents (43.3%). Conclusion: Obese adolescents are more likely to have higher abnormal TG and HDL levels compared to overweight adolescents.

  Background and Objective: Pumpkin seeds are rich in nutritional and phytochemical content. However, pumpkin seeds are rarely consumed in Indonesia. Development of pumpkin seed-based foods, such as biscuits, may provide a nutritious supplemental food. This study aimed to identify the nutritional value of pumpkin seed-based biscuits. Materials and Methods: Five pumpkin seed biscuit formulas were developed from different wheat and pumpkin seed flour compositions as follows: Formula 1 (4:1), Formula 2 (3:2), Formula 3 (2:3), Formula 4 (1:4) and Formula 5 (0:1). The Luff-Schoorl, Kjeldahl, Soxhlet, X-ray fluorescence methods were used to analyze the nutritional content of Formula 1. Results: Formula 1 contained 48.16±0.007 g carbohydrates, 11.20±0.021 g protein, 33.05±0.049 g fat, 1.64±0.304 g crude fiber, 5.91±0.007 g water and 1.65±0.028 g ash. The highest mineral value was chlorine (46.23mg) and the lowest was molybdenum (0.5 mg). Conclusion: Pumpkin seed biscuits can be used as an alternative healthy snack for those who are undernourished.
