Abstract: Herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2) is a one of the most prevalent worldwide sexually transmitted infection. HSV-2 causes recurrent genital ulcers, neonatal herpes, and also, increases the risk for HIV acquisition. Many HSV-2 vaccines have been tested in humans, but were not consistently effective. In the present work we tried to produce a model vaccine for HSV-2 formulated in different formulae as an attempt for development of an effective prophylactic and therapeutic HSV-2 vaccine. Beta propiolactone (BPL) as virus inactivant was compared with the conven¬tional formalin. Also, calcium phosphate nano-particles (CPN) as a vaccine adjuvant was compared with current used aluminum phosphate gel (alum) micro-particles. Stability of adjuvanted and non adjuvanted vaccine models was monitored at different thermal conditions. Subcutaneous route was conducted in balb-c mice to determine the immune response of vaccine formulations. Data revealed that Al-BPL-HSV-2 vaccine showed the highest and longer durative immune response compared with other vaccine candidates. Different formulations of the test vaccine showed the same pattern of stability at different thermal conditions (4oC and 37oC and 45oC). Also, Al-BPL-HSV-2 vaccine formulation could efficiently develop antibody level that could neutralize the challenge dose of HSV-2 and no viral infection could be detected in the vaginal tissues using direct immune-fluorescent assay.

Abstract: Concrete is one of the most fundamental materials used in the field of civil engineering. In this project, an attempt has been made to replace the cement with locally available materials such as Low calcium fly ash and Ground granulated blast furnace slag (GGBS) which acts as alternative binder. Fly ash is rich in silicate and alumina and it reacts with alkaline solution to produce alumina silicate gel that binds the aggregate to produce a good concrete. GGBS is a slag which is usually used for partial replacement of cement. Geopolymer concrete members are cured at ambient temperature and also at 80°C in oven for 24hours with varying proportions of fly ash and GGBS for 12M concentration .The alkaline solutions (sodium hydroxide and sodium silicate solutions) are prepared 24 hrs, prior of casting. The conventional method of mixing, compacting and moulding is done to produce Geopolymer concrete. Cubes, cylinders and beams are tested to find the compressive strength, tensile strength and flexural strength. The compressive, tensile and flexural strength for all members are tested for 7 days and 28days.After the experimental investigation, it was found that the strength of geopolymer concrete increased with increase in higher percentage of GGBS and also the strength increased with age of the concrete in case of ambient curing.

Abstract: Fourteen male lambs of average weight of 14.46 kg were allotted randomly in two groups. One group (A) was kunnaned- a traditional Sudanese method used to control mating which envolves application of a double loop cord around the scrotum and the pendulous part of the ram's prepucial sheath, affecting mechanically normal penetration of the penis in the female genital tract, thus preventing conception. The other group (B) left entire. The two groups were fed on concentrate diet comprised of 15.24% crude protein and 10.48 Mj/kg metabolizable energy for 100 days. Feedlot performance and carcass characteristics were measured. Kunnand lambs had significantly (p<0.01) increased feed consumption than entire, but kunnan had no significant effect (p>0.05) on growth rate, feed conversion ratio and slaughter weight.

Abstract: Investigated were four different samples of diseased cows, by means of fluorescence spectroscopy. It was found that the most suitable pumping wavelength fluorescence method to test samples of cows is 245 nm. Selected as low pumping wavelength, because the bacteria that cause diseases and infections in cattle have lower emission wavelengths. Through the application of fluorescence spectroscopy establishes accessible and rapid method for analysis of different samples of one animal unit. Equally effective were tested as a blood sample, and samples of abscess, vaginal and nasal discharge. Fluorescence spectroscopy was carried out at the dairy farm are not carried in the laboratory, it was possible because of the mobility of the test this device. The method can be applied to a mass testing because the pattern of spectral analyzer for fluorescence spectroscopy described in this article is easy to operate and quite affordable. Fluorescence spectroscopy can safely replace labor-intensive and expensive tests of trivial microbiology laboratories. The three main advantages of fluorescence spectroscopy is that the method is fast, does not require consumables and can be carried out at the dairy farm.

Abstract: The study was conducted to evaluate the effect of vermicompost and organic fertilizers on growth and yield of tomato plants. Various growth and yield parameters like mean Percentage of seed germination and seedling length plant height, yield/plant, marketable yield/plant, mean leaf number, total plant biomass were recorded for each treatment. Almost all the growth, yield and quality parameters increased significantly as compared to control, though the increase within the treatments was not found to be significant. Vermicompost is produced by vermicomposting of organic material through interactions between earthworm and microorganisms. The present study suggested that vermicompost is more favorable for vigorous production of tomatoes. The vermicompost can be economically and environmentally suitable and also maintenance of soil environment. The continued use of chemical fertilizers causes health and environmental hazards such as ground and surface water pollution by nitrate leaching. Compost refers to organic constituents, usually wastes, that have been mixed, piled, and moistened and undergo thermophilic decomposition that alters or decomposes the original organic materials.

Abstract: Warming-up is considered to be as the main sport component for any sport training period, it is the basis for any athletes before performing any sport activity or competition. It was noted on most of sport coaches, that they do not give the required attention and following-up for players warming-up period, leaving warming-up exercises to fitness trainers to do it without any supervision. Performance of warming-up exercises should focus particularly on type of exercises, time duration and exact period of time to do before real training or competition. Consequently, the health target average level of heart pulses should be reached through warming-up exercises for the benefit of athlete in general, and for the score results of his participation in competitions in specific. Warming-up exercises if wasn't done properly, it will reflect badly on individual's health and on their achievements. Sports' warming-up gets large importance especially before athlete exercises that requires maximum efforts to be done in a small short period of time.

Abstract: Fruits of Zanthozylum limonella Alston, one of the spices traditionally used for toothache relief, were hydro-distilled to obtain about 4.3% yield of volatile oil (ZL). 30% of ZL in a bioadhesive gel was prepared for in vitro permeation and in vivo tests. In vitro permeation of total phenolic contents of the ZL gel through porcine esophagus, as the model mucous membrane, using Franz diffusion cells indicates an average steady-state rate of 0.1 ± 0.02 mgGAE/cm2/h at 37 C (n = 5) without lag time. In vivo study in buccal pressure-wounds of rats indicates that licking behaviour was obvious and could be inhibited by gels containing xylocaine or ZL but not fluocinolone. Histological analysis of the inflammed cells in excised oral wounds showed that it took 1 day for fluocinolone gel to significantly reduce the number of inflammed cells and 2 days for ZL gel (p<0.05 both). Comparative wound assessments (edema and erythema) indicate mild anti-inflammatory activity of ZL gel. Thus, phenolic components of ZL could readily permeate though mucous membrane and ZL gel showed potential benefits for topical use in oral wound.

Abstract: Recent advances in the treatment of aplastic anemia (AA) made most of patients to expect to achieve a long-term survival. Allogeneic stem cell transplantation (SCT) from HLA-matched sibling donor (MSD-SCT) is a preferred first-line treatment option for younger patients with severe or very severe AA, whereas immunosup pressive treatment (IST) is an alternative option for others. Horse anti-thymocyte globuline (ATG) with cyclosporin A (CsA) had been a standard IST regimen with acceptable response rate. Recently, horse ATG had been not available and replaced with rabbit ATG in most countries.

Abstract: Groundwater level is an indicator of groundwater availability ,groundwater flow and the physical characteristics of the groundwater system. Management of water resources requires input from hydrological studies. This is mainly in the form of estimation of the magnitude of a hydrological parameters. The factors that influence and control the groundwater level fluctuation were determined to develop a forecasting model and examine its potential in predicting groundwater level. Models for prediction of water table depth were developed based on Artificial Neural Networks(ANN) with different combinations of hydrological parameters. The best combination was confirmed with factor analysis. The input parameters for groundwater level forecasting were derived using Time Series Analysis (TSA).Mamom river basin in Trivandrum district was chosen as the study area as its groundwater resources have been used as the main source for drinking and agricultural purposes.

Abstract: Architecture is based on and contributes to the collective human experience. While thus embodying a certain continuity and maintaining unity, it also represents change and embraces diversity. The balance is struck by the interplay between culture, ecology, materials, technology, economics, and function. These both set boundaries as also fuel a combination of the architects' analytical insights and creative syntheses, which are finally responsible for giving rise to the range of built forms. This movement can be visualized along temporal, spatial and functional planes. The edifice of the creative non-rational element must be based on a firm foundation of rationality.

Abstract: Whatever kind of industry are you in being able to obtain information based on analysis of data coming from wide variety of sources can help make better decisions. In 2004 Google developed MapReduce, a programming framework for the processing of large datasets across distributed systems. MapReduce got more popularised by open source Apache Hadoop framework. In 2009 Amazon introduced Elastic MapReduce which is used for processing large datasets efficiently using the Apache framework on the fly. It allows customer to write their MapReduce application without dealing with hardware, network and Hadoop configuration. User only needs to submit their Map and Reduce functions along with required number of nodes and in return user will get simplified data as per his specifications mentioned in the application. Issue with Amazon EMR is the usage of computing resources provided only by Amazon datacenter at a certain cost. The goal of this project will be open sourcing of Amazon Elastic MapReduce. It will add the features of Elastic MapReduce to open source private cloud.

Abstract: A field experiment was conducted in Sher-e-Bangla Agricultural University Farm, Dhaka, Bangladesh during December, 2011 to April, 2012 to study the effect of integrated use of vermicompost, pressmud and urea on soil fertility status after harvest of rice (Hybrid Dhan Hira 2). Ten treatments coded from T1 to T10 were used in this experiment. The highest amount of organic matter (1.67 %) were observed in T9 treatment receiving 120 kg N/ha from vermicompost. The highest amount of total nitrogen (0.070 %), were observed in T3 treatment receiving 90 kg N/ha from urea along with 30 kg N/ha from vermicompost. The highest amount of available phosphorus (11.71 ppm) and available sulfur (11.46 ppm) in postharvest soil were recorded in treatment T2 receiving 120 kg N/ha from urea. The highest amount of available potassium (21.85 ppm) were observed in T5 treatment receiving 60 kg N/ha from urea along with 60 kg N/ha from vermicompost. On the other hand the lowest values of these parameters were obtained from control treatment T1.

Abstract: The US health care industry has undergone considerable consolidation, with mergers and acquisitions happening amongst health insurers, pharmaceutical companies and hospitals. Although there have been mergers in the pharmaceutical and insurance sectors, this paper will focus only on the impact that hospital mergers have had. With the trend all but continuing, various arguments for and against hospital mergers have been propounded, with different points of view on the net effects that hospital mergers have had. The main concerns of both sides is the impact that hospital mergers have had on price, quality of patient care and hospital efficiency. In this article, we find that the impact of hospital mergers on these indices has been mixed as there is no predictable effect that hospital mergers will definitely have. Indeed, it appears that the impact of a hospital merger is specific to the degree of hospital consolidation in the region where the hospitals operate, the market share of each partner to the merger, and how good they are in terms of quality of care prior to the merger.

Abstract: Health Care is both a science and an art. While the science of caring for patients is taught through a structured curriculum, practical sessions, and direct practice, the art such as communicating effectively with patients and other health professionals is often assumed. It usually falls to the innate capability of healthcare providers, with the assumption such skills will improve over time. Communicating effectively in a clinical environment improves the quality of care that patients receive, this article outlines some effective strategies for managing daily communication with patients.

Abstract: Pathologies of hair growth can be psychologically distressing but they are poorly controlled. Hormones and paracrine factors regulate the hair follicle and its associated glands. However, our understanding of their mechanisms is limited, restricting the development of new treatments for hair disorders. Therefore better treatments for hair loss disorders are required. Some plant extracts are believed to have effect on hair growth. Few local plants in Kurdistan region are used traditionally as stimulators of human hair growth, but their effects on hair growth in vivo has not been studied yet. Therefore the aim of this study was to investigate the actual effects of those local plant extracts used as a traditional herbal treatment for hair loss, using in vivo rat model; and to compare their effectiveness with the best medical treatment available (Minoxidil).

Abstract: Providing efficient health care system for citizens is an essential requirement of any developing or developed countries. A key success in having a functioning good health system is connecting citizens with doctors and pharmacists which is part of having an electronic government (e-government). Technologies can easily deliver government services to citizens and empower citizen through access to information, or more efficient government management. Unfortunately this region ( Kurdistan - Iraq) lacks a functioning e-government system for citizen health care, which hampers bringing the best possible services for the patients. Currently the patient’s records are not held in a secure database system in which all the doctors, pharmacist can easily access the patient’s records. Therefore, to solve this problem this e-government project computerizes the current health system in our region into an intelligent computer based system. This intelligent system is called “Intelligent Patient Doctor Pharmacy system (PDP)”.

Abstract: Ceylon Cinnamon, which is popularly termed as ‘True Cinnamon’ is a derivative from the bark of an indigenous to Sri Lanka plant Cinnamomun zeylanicum Blume. The competition pertaining to Ceylon Cinnamon in world trade has already become significant, as the worlds’ total Cinnamon market is comprised not only of True Cinnamon, but of Cassia; the closest substitute and a spice inferior to True Cinnamon as well. Sri Lanka has to compete with three Cassia producing countries in the total Cinnamon market, as China, Indonesia and Viet Nam; the three major Cassia producers are the major producers of the total Cinnamon market as well. According to the experts, lack of productivity of Ceylon Cinnamon cultivated lands and insufficient production to fulfill the worlds’ demand for Cinnamon is one of the major issues and, which have to be immediately addressed to be cope up with and to withstand the competition in the total Cinnamon market. In this context this research aimed to identify the cultivated area and production trends of Ceylon Cinnamon comparing them with those of major cassia producers. The FAOSTAT (Food and Agricultural Organization Statistics) database was used as the data source. Results revealed that Ceylon Cinnamon cultivated area has expanded in a minute pace and Ceylon Cinnamon production remains almost constant throughout the years compared to the major Cassia producers. The average annual productivity of ‘Ceylon Cinnamon’ have remained constant at about 500 kg/ha, throughout the past thirteen years, in which China and Indonesia have shown an average productivity of about 1350 kg/ha and 1000 kg/ha respectively.

Abstract: Neural networks are widely used in computer science in various research applications specifically for pattern recognition. Neural network can solve complex problems by nature and implements solution as being similar to be performed by human being. It is possible to incorporate such a neural network concept with phonetic algorithms that try to identify phonetic similarity among the words that will result in improvement of overall result. Phonetic algorithm based programs are used to identify phonetic similarity in which pronunciation of the different words with different meaning in English language are similar. There exists number of such algorithms with advantages and disadvantages which are introduced here and then after author has derived, designed and developed new algorithm. Each algorithm provides certain result at some extent but by integrating these algorithms in form of neural network results in improvement over any individual algorithm implementation. Neural networks are familiar as a solution for pattern recognition and here efforts are being made to identify similar patterns based on pronunciation of the English words to correct the misspelled English word as well as to suggest number of alternative English words as a result which have similar phonetic identity.

Abstract: Estimation of rainfall by satellite technology is one of valuable data production. These data need to be verified for more consistent with observed data. Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) precipitation products have been extensively validated at ground sites around the world. This research is a first attempt for evaluating TRMM measurements of monthly rainfall over Iraq. Accumulated monthly rainfall collected by the Iraqi Meteorological and Seismology Organization (IMSO) at four stations, representing different climate zones, in Iraq for the period 2000-2010 were compared with TRMM measurements. Results showed that rain highly varies from one season to another and such behavior is observed in both sets of data. It was found that TRMM measurements overestimate rainfall in most months of the rainy season. The results indicated that there is a high correlation between TRMM and IMSO measurements suggesting that TRMM measurements may be used to estimate rainfall over Iraq. This could be a very useful specially for rural and deserts areas where no instruments are available for measuring rain.

Abstract: Pigeonpea is the major source of vegetable protein in Indian diet. About 72.5 percent area and 62.5 production of world’s pigeonpea is in India.Pigeonpea is the only food legume where cytoplasmic-genic male sterility is being exploited for commercial use of hybrids. The discovery of stable CMS system and breeding of commercial hybrids in pigeonpea has become a landmark in increasing the productivity of this crop. Keeping in view the combining ability estimates were worked out through Line x Tester analysis of 10 hybrids developed by crossing 2 lines (Males) with five cytoplasmic male sterile (CMS) lines (Females) to know the genetic architecture of yield attributes- Days to maturity, branches plant1, pods plant1, seed yield, wilt resistance and pollen fertility. Analysis of variance revealed significant differences among genotypes, crosses, lines, testers and Line x tester interactions for most of the traits.

Abstract: Microfinance and microcredit is a recent development issue and one of the mechanisms to empower poor people in rural Ethiopia. Microfinance interventions may empower women by increasing their incomes and their control over that income. This study evaluates the impact of microcredit program on female headed households’ annual expenditure in rural Ethiopian, Jimma Zone. Data were collected from 1092 female headed households from both participants and non-participants in microcredit program during 2013. Data was analyzed using the PSM technique. PSM results show that participant in microcredit program has a significant and positive impact on households’ annual expenditure. Furthermore, the Probit result sows that higher price of egg and sugar makes households more likely to participate in microcredit program. However, more educated households’, large land holders and higher income earners are less likely to participate in the program.

Abstract: The Ethiopian Economy has the feature of low and stable inflation before the period 2002/03. However, in the post 2002/03 period continues rise in the prices level along with rapid economic growth has been emerged. On the basis of this situation, this study has examined the existing causal relationship between inflation and money supply and between inflation and economic growth in Ethiopia for the period 1970/71-2010/11.The Johansen co integration test indicates the presence of one co integrating vector and the VECM demonstrate that the existence of long run bi-directional causality between inflation and money supply and uni-directional causality from economic growth to inflation. In the short run one way causality were found from money supply and economic growth to inflation. Therefore, the key findings of the study are inflation is a monetary phenomenon in Ethiopia and inflation is negatively and significantly affected by economic growth.Thus, based on the results of the study, monetary policy should be planned to maintain price stability by controlling the growth of money supply in the economy. Also combined efforts should be made by policy maker to increase the supply of output so as to reduce the prices of goods and services and boost the growth of the economy.

Abstract: Data modeling is the basic step of any database design, which is a powerful expression of any company business requirements. It is nothing but an act of exploring data oriented structures and the conceptual models in form of diagrams and flow charts on how data items relate to each other. Data modeling tools and techniques capture and translate complex system design into clearly understood representation of data flows and processes. The main focus of data modeler is on data and exploring data issues, therefore they tend to get much more accurate data than object modelers. They often use multiple models to view the same data and ensuring that all processes, entities, relationships and data flows have been processed.

Abstract: Menstruation is the discharge of blood and tissue that occurs each month as part of a woman’s menstrual cycle. The first periods are often very irregular. It is not uncommon to skip a month, or to have periods close together. The length of periods varies from two days to a week. Gradually, a regular cycle will be established. Under this backdrop, this paper made an attempt to analysis the menstrual problems faced by the visually challenged women and its determinants, it also describe their treatment seeking behavior of the respondents. Totally 468 visually impaired women were interviewed. More than one-third of the respondents experienced menstrual problems and the association between the incidence of menstrual problems and their background conditions has statistically been proved. About 27 percent of the respondents consulted doctors for treatment of the problems mainly at Government and Private Hospitals. Hence, specific measures should be taken for mainstreaming disabled women to get better education on reproductive health which will help them practice safe and hygienic menstrual practices.

Abstract: Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are large networks made of numerous sensor nodes with sensing, computation, and wireless communication capabilities. Due to the achievement in low-power digital circuit and wireless communication, many applications of the WSN are developed and already been used in habitat monitoring, military object and object tracking. The energy of nodes is the most important consideration among them because the lifetime of Wireless Sensor Networks is limited by the energy of the nodes.

Abstract: Technology transfer usually involves some source of technology group which possess specialized technical skills which transfers the technology to a target group of receptors who do not possess those specialized technical skills and who, therefore, cannot create the tool themselves. Micro and Small Enterprises (MSEs) need to be strengthened and developed so that the income they generate can support transition in terms of enterprise growth. Over the years, Catering MSEs have shifted from the old traditional methods of operation through the transfer of technology.

Abstract: This study investigates employee’s perception of job security in relation to performance evaluations in the workplace. Job security can affect many facets of performance and attitude in the workplace. Not all organizations conduct performance evaluations, which can result in adverse outcomes for both them and their employees. The purpose of this study is to investigate the relationship between performance evaluations and employee’s perception of job security. In addition, this study seeks to determine if there is a difference in receiving none, below average, average and above average evaluation feedback in terms of job security in performance evaluations being present or not. A one-way ANOVA was performed to evaluate the total score for job security and the performance rating the participants received. There was a significant difference between above average and average ratings (p=.04). Between the three groups (above average, average, and no performance rating) a significant difference was also found (p=.012). This indicates how important the evaluation process is while giving feedback to employees.

Abstract: Let L be a compactly generated multiplicative lattice with 1 compact in which every finite product of compact elements is compact and M be a module over L which is also a compactly generated in which the largest element I_M is compact. In this paper we define A_p ,〖 A〗_FM in the lattice module M and obtain many properties where p is prime element of L . Finally we define σ- element in a lattice module M and obtain it's properties.

Abstract: Sweet potato (Ipomoea batatas L) is an important tuber crop worldwide. It is the second most economically important after Irish potato in Sub- Sahara Africa. In Kenya, it is an important food crop alongside maize. Sweet potato has gained popularity among many farmers in Kenya due to its ability to give satisfactory yields under adverse climatic and soil condition as well as under low or no use of external inputs. However, its yield potential of 20-50 t/ha of root dry weight is yet to be exploited by farmers due to abiotic and biotic constraints. A Participatory rural appraisal and survey was carried out in central, eastern and western Kenya in August to October 2012 in order to understand and validate problematic weeds of sweet potatoes, methods and costs of control, with the aim of conducting research. Results indicated that hand weeding using hoes was the most popular method farmers used to control weeds. And that most farmers across the counties spent between Ksh. 2,000-2,999 to control them.

Abstract: It a truism that the strategies of the defense and intelligence communities and the commitment of the present administration in Nigeria to rout out the Boko Haram elements in the Northeastern region, have not halted the violent activities of the sect which have now remained frequent, particularly the perennial bombings of soft targets. This paper basically addresses the task of combating violent conflicts and terrorism in Nigeria from four dimensions, namely; the security institution and international dimension, the socio-economic dimension, the governance and democratization dimension and the rule of law and human development dimension.
