Abstract: Tourism enterprises are obliged to keep at the highest level the service quality and customer satisfaction in order to compete with the competitors in the sector within today’s increasing competitive environment. Accommodation enterprises, which are among the cornerstones of tourism sector, have a quite important position. Therefore, the services offered by these enterprises and their capability of meeting the customers’ needs and desires are also a matter of great importance. Certain features of accommodation enterprises should be taken into account in this regard. The criteria of hotels and weighting these criteria are determinant in assessment of multi-criteria decision making process.

Abstract: "In countries where Energy consumption is a critical issue, many rural areas have power failures very frequently and one of the biggest reasons for this problem is poor power management in urban areas. This poor power management issue occurs because of ignorance of the consumers which is more prominent as consumers do not keep a track of their energy consumption levels. Project SEM is a design proposed to help solve this problem. This system is specifically designed to tap voltage and current at the upstream of mains of a specific area, to calculate instantaneous active power values and to eventually calculate energy consumed by the systems in that area."

Abstract: This article presents the findings from a pre-test post-test two group comparative study that was conducted in six medical surgical wards, as part of a pilot study for a much larger investigation. This research explored the effect of implementing the Structured Nursing Care Rounds (SNCR) on primary care nurses’ attitude and perceptions of nursing care practices. Its goal was to engage front-line hospital nurses for improving the quality of nursing care practices and the patient’s experience of care. Primary care nurses’ role was of vital importance in SNCR implementation. During hourly visits, bedside care were bunched up and viewed as a package of ‘9 P’s’ interventions. Nurses in participating units completed the Nurses’ Attitude Scale (NAS) and Nurses’ Modus Operandi Scale (NMOS) prior to the two weeks training period and after four weeks period during which structured nursing care rounds were conducted in the intervention wards. Total NAS score significantly improved in primary care nurses of intervention wards during the SNCR implementation period (pre-29.80±2.28; post-54.10±1.82, p= ≤0.001**). Total NMOS score in the intervention group significantly lifted with SNCR implementation (pre-77.96 ±5.61; post-102.0 ±3.84, p= ≤0.001**).

Abstract: Urolithiasis is a common clinical disorder. A descriptive cross sectional study was done to compare the presentation of ureteric urolithiasis with respect to gender. According to the literature the first episode of urinary tract stone occurs commonly in young people (20-40 years) and peak incidence is reported in second or third decades of life. There was a higher prevalence of male patients in the 6th and 7th decades of life which is similar to the findings reported in other studies. X-ray Kidney, Ureter, Bladder (KUB) and ultra sound KUB data and ureteric stone site and size were collected and analyzed. The stone size was significantly different between two groups (p=0.303). Both groups had similar distribution of ureteric stones within ureter, more in the lower ureter followed by upper ureter and mid ureter. The side of the stone was significantly different between males and females (p<0.05).

Abstract: Bollywood, or the Hindi Film industry, embraces a truly enigmatic world of its own. The craze and euphoria surrounding it, not only in India but also in foreign lands, is something worth witnessing. One of the major attractions of Bollywood, which in fact distinguishes it from Hollywood, is its elaborate song-dance sequences which never fail to strike a chord with the audience. Its creation of sublime, emotional or foot-tapping escapism is simply unmatched anywhere in the world. A fact often overlooked is that, these songs and dances are intricately woven in our social fabric. It is interesting to take note of this and undertake an analysis of the same. In this article, I shall discuss about Bollywood, how the dances and songs are placed within movies, analyse the dance types, its forms in the context of social forces operating within it- ‘globalization’ and ‘glocalization’ and provide a sociological understanding of it and its changing form. Since it is not possible to discuss the entire array of dance in Bollywood, I have analysed the dances post the globalization era and after the onslaught of MTV in 1980s. I have focused mainly on those dance sequences which have won the Filmfare Awards1, between year 1994 to 2013.

Abstract: There is now a significant world-wide interest to solve the environmental problems caused by industrial waste and other materials by including such materials in the manufacture of concrete.This technology has been introduced in India in construction, a decade ago, for specific requirement namely footpaths, parking areas etc. but now being adopted extensively in different uses where the conventional construction of pavement using bituminous mix or cement concrete technology is not feasible or desirable. The characteristics of concrete containing fine crushed glass during its process, the best ratio of fine crushed glass which leads to higher strength of concrete in order to produce concrete blocks, and the effect of waste glass replacement on the expansion caused by Alkali-silica reaction (ASR). This study looked at the feasibility of waste glass inclusion as partial FA replacement systems. Properties of concrete incorporating waste glass as partial substitution for FA amounts of 15%, 30% and 45% were investigated. The waste glass material used was obtained waste collectors. The results obtained show clearly that glass enhances the compressive strength properties of the final concrete product. The study indicated that waste glass can effectively be used as fine aggregate replacement (up to 45%) without substantial change in strength.

Abstract: The paper discusses the main reasons for the social and economic deprivation of large sections of population in countries like India. It identifies low educational learning as one of the main reasons behind their deprivation; and one of the main reasons behind low educational learning, despite rapid increase in school admissions in the recent past, is the low retention and irregular school attendance. The paper argues that religious and spiritual teachings can play decisive role in changing the situation by mobilizing the parents and guardians for regular school attendance and sensitisation of school authorities for providing enabling environment for children to attend school regularly. It highlights certain religious teachings which strongly supporting education and knowledge for all. To substantiate this argument, the paper quotes a few important verses from the Holy Qur’an and Hadiths. The article provides evidence based methods for engaging with religious and spiritual leaders and institutions for sustainable mobilization for regular school attendance.

Abstract: Classical mobile robot control systems are not suitable for use in industrial environments. The high cost of such systems, both to acquire and maintain them, prohibits their adoption. This thesis proposes a new mobile robot architecture and investigates the motion control subsystem of that architecture. This motion control subsystem is based on following a marked path using visual servoing techniques to reduce computational overhead. Two pieces of information are extracted from each frame: the horizontal position of the path, relative to the centre of the image, and the gradient of the path. These pieces of information are then passed into a proportional steering system, which uses them to steer towards the path. The use of marked paths rather than a model of the environment ensures that the downtime, caused by changes to the environment, is minimised. The lack of a model of the robot should allow the control system to easily be ported to different robot hardware.

Abstract: Flood risk refers to areas that are at risk of flood hazard. A flood occurs when normally dry lands are temporarily covered by water, it is when a water body breaks out through its natural or artificial bank as a result of snow melting, heavy rainfall, dam failure, raising of the sea level. Floods disasters are common in most part of the world and GIS as a modern technology has several techniques and tools that can be used for effective flood modelling and mapping. The development of GIS functionalities for hydraulic and hydrological models made it possible to identify areas that are at risk of flooding in a particular earth’s surface area. The purpose of flood risk mapping is to steer strategies towards protection, prevention and preparedness, in attempts to minimize future costs from flooding. This paper exploits the utilization of GIS techniques in assessing flood vulnerability with a goal of identifying and mapping areas that are at risk of flooding within Cardiff city. This lead to identification of flood risk areas and identification of properties that lies in a flood risk within the study area.

Abstract: This paper analyzes the factors affecting the commercial bank of Ethiopia’s (CBE’s) net interest margins during 2005 to 2014, a period characterized by increasing the bank’s net interest margin. The pooled ordinary multiple regression models are used to estimate the results without compromising the classical linear regression assumptions. In line with findings in the previous literature, this paper finds that capital adequacy (risk aversion), credit risk, operating costs, degree of competition (Lerner index) and deposit growth rate are the most important drivers of CBE’s net interest margins. Almost all variables in the model indicates a positive and highly significant association ship with net interest margins, and are found to be the most important bank specific factors that determine the net interest margin of the bank, CBE. The results of the study also suggests that high concentration led to lower competition, and thereby increase the net interest margins of banks, especially the dominant bank like CBE in case of Ethiopia. All in all, the results suggests that there has to be a measure to be taken by the sector to reduce the banks concentration ratio, operating costs, risk premium on credits, and increase the level of capital to offer competitive interest margins and fairly shared growth rates in deposits among others. In doing so, this paper conclude that further structural reforms and merger or consolidation enter alia may lower CBE’s net interest margins and share the market potentially fairly to other private banks operating in the industry.

Abstract: Signature is considered to be an important behavioral biometric of a person and signature recognition is a relevant research area in the field of personal authentication. Hence signature recognition is a tedious process in the day to day life. Most of the signature recognition system is not efficient due to poor preprocessing, normally due to poor thinning methodology. In this work various thinning algorithms have been studied and comparisons among them were performed. But none of the thinning methods gives a convenient result. Hence a new method for thinning has been proposed, which gives an acceptable result compared to the existing algorithms.

Abstract: The present study was carried out to develop a drinking yoghurt made with goat milk using thermophilic yoghurt culture (YC-X11), Bifidobacterioum animalis subsp. Lactis (BB-12) and Lactobacillus acidophilus (LA-5) and to evaluate physicochemical, microbiological and sensory properties. Three inoculation levels (0.2 gL-1, 0.3 gL-1 and 0.4 gL-1) of traditional yoghurt cultures and two probiotic cultures were separately used to develop drinking yoghurt. Drinking yoghurts were stored at 4 0C for 21 days and analyzed for microbial counts, titratable acidity and pH on 0, 7, 14 and 21 days of storage. Sensory evaluation was done within four-day interval from day 1 to day 14 with 30 untrained panelists using five point hedonic scales. Titratable acidity and pH were significantly different (P < 0.05) with added cultures and culture levels. There was an interactive effect of treatment and storage time on pH for the developed product (P < 0.05) and developed product was within the acceptable range up to 14 days of storage at 4 0C. Ash, dry matter, fat contents, brix value and density did not significantly differ (P > 0.05) with cultures and culture levels. Yoghurt made with LA-5 received the highest overall acceptability. The developed products were negative for pathogenic microbes up to 21 days of storage. In conclusion, 0.3 gL-1 inoculation level of LA-5 could be used to develop the probiotic drinking yoghurt using goat’s milk with desired physiochemical, microbiological and sensory properties.

Abstract: There is a long tradition of use of medicinal plants for treatment of liver disorders. Documentation and evaluation of hepatoprotective medicinal plants could provide an important role in development of novel drugs for treatment of various hepatic disorders. The present study was aimed to document and perform quantitative evaluation on the medicinal plants used for the treatment of liver disorders by the local traditional healers of two district of Manipur. Ethnopharmacological field studies were conducted by using semi-structured questionnaires during 2012-2014 among the Meitei community in Imphal East and West districts of Manipur. Disease Consensus Indices (DCI) were calculated on the compiled data. A total of 40 plant species belonging to 22 families are used as hepatoprotective medicinal plants by the traditional healers of some certain area of Imphal east and imphal west district of Manipur, India. The highest DCI value was found in Andrographis paniculata (Burm.f.) Nees. The study could document various medicinal plants used in the treatment of liver disorders and for support of liver functions.

Abstract: The study investigated the phenomenon of banking sector frauds in Nigeria, staff involvement and the role of the human resource function in evolving curtailment strategies. It sought, particularly, to determine whether there is a relationship between the amounts of fraud loses in the banking sector and the cadre levels of employees. Using secondary data, estimated losses (EL) to fraud was regressed on number of fraud cases, total amounts and the categories of staff involved. The estimation of the model was based on the ordinary least squares (OLS) method after the necessary pre-testing of the annual time series data using the augmented Dickey-Fuller (ADF) and the Philips-Peron (PP) tests, taken side by side with the related descriptive statistics. The study revealed that the contribution of officers and accountants to fraud losses was the highest compared to the other categorized staff. The study model, considered good for prediction (DW=1.93), revealed that seventy seven percent of frauds are attributable to insiders and about 23% of fraud losses are attributable to non-insider related frauds and forgeries (R2=0.77). Based on the findings, it is recommended, inter alia, that the recruitment process be strengthened through a robust, IT-enabled selection, referencing and personnel lifestyle tracking system. Further, the work environment and job content must be enriched to curtail the opportunity to commit fraud presented when employees are allowed to have wholesome access to assets and information that allow them to both commit and conceal fraud.

Abstract: This text traces in broad outline the mechanisms by which a group of men under forced deportation eventually settled to the price of a thousand efforts and then how history has caught up after half a century of attachment and hope. This study was made possible through the collection of field data. This took place in several phases of additional years1996 to 2012. We have learned a great fruit of these investigations both collective and individual. The individual and collective character of an anthropological investigation and settlement ceases to be a fiction when the testimonies are true and overlap. Most often the researcher is in front of the builders of what we should call "civilization”. This is the case here because there are still some Matsouanistes alive and WITH their descendants.

Abstract: Thin films of cadmium sulfide (CdS) were grown by Chemical Bath Deposition (CBD) technique. Cadmium sulfide, and thiourea were used as the source materials for the preparation of the films. The films were deposited onto the good quality glass plates (75 mm X 25mm) as substrates. To carry out the growth, 1 M Cadmium sulfide solution was prepared and required amount of triethanolamine was added to form a bound stable complex. The substrates (glass plates) were stirred in the solution at the temperature 55ºC with a constant rate of rotation 60 rpm using a DC motor. The pH of the reaction mixture was maintained using appropriate quantities of Sodium hydroxide and aqueous ammonia were added for the film adherence to the substrate support. Thickness of the film gets nearly saturated when the deposition time is above 90 min. Electrical resistivity of the grown CdS film was found to be of the order of 106 Ω-cm as measured by using Four-Probe method.

Abstract: Security of data is an important factor in data transmission through network. This paper proposed a new method using fuzzy set theory to enhance the security. The data in the form of text to be transmitted is encrypted by using the AES Rijndael algorithm. The encryption algorithm is the mathematical procedure for performing encryption of data. A key is used to cipher a message and to decipher it back to the original message. Then the scrambled encrypted text is converted into numeric form by applying the fuzzy set theory. The fuzzy logic provides the text in the zero to one value. These numerical values before decryption are again converted into scrambled text. if the key provided by the user is the same key that is used for the encryption then original data will be retrieved. The paper, integrates the encryption of text and conversion of the unscrambled text from numerical to original by using fuzzy logic.

Abstract: Single image haze removal has been a challengingproblem due to its ill-posed nature. In this paper, we propose a simple but powerful color attenuation prior for haze removal from a single input hazy image. By creating a linear model for modeling the scene depth of the hazy image under this novel prior and learning the parameters of the model with a supervised learning method, the depth information can be well recovered. With the depth map of the hazy image, we can easily estimate the transmission and restore the scene radiance via the atmospheric scattering model, and thus effectively remove the haze from a single image. Experimental results show that the proposed approach outperforms state-of-the-art haze removal algorithms in terms of both efficiency and the dehazing effect.

Abstract: Vegetable salad is a very common food accompaniment in Nigeria. The vegetables that usually make up this recipe include tomatoes, cucumber, carrots, cabbage and lettuce. They are sold in almost every market, and can be seen hawked around by traders. Fruits and vegetable have been identified as significant sources of pathogens and chemical contaminants (Uzeh et al., 2009). As a result, environmental and food microbiologists have continued to identify and suggest control measures for hazards at all stages in the supply chain (Johngen, 2005). Khan et al, (1992) reported that bacterial contamination results from various unsanitary cultivation and marketing practices, In another study, Tambekar et al. (2006) reported that bacterial contamination of salad vegetable was linked to the fact that they are usually consumed without any heat treatment. These vegetables can become contaminated with pathogenic microorganisms during harvesting, through human handling, harvesting equipments, transport containers, wild and domestic animals pathogens from the human and animal reservoir as well as other environmental pathogens can be found at the time of consumption. Although spoilage bacteria, yeast and mould dominate the micro flora on row fruits and vegetable, the occasional presence of pathogenic bacteria, parasites and viruses capable of causing human infection has also been documented (Hassan et al., 2006).

Abstract: System of Rice Intensification (SRI) paddy was introduced to offset the heavy cost of Conventional paddy cultivation. To decrease the cost of cultivation in Conventional paddy, to increase profits of the farmers in rice cultivation by decreasing the use of fertilizers, pesticides and minimizing water use by scientific water management in the face of labour scarcity, SRI paddy was introduced in Madagascar. In Conventional paddy the spacing of 20x15cms was followed and 20-25 days seedlings were used, and whereas, in SRI paddy cultivation, the wider spacing of 25x25cms was followed and by 8-12 days seedlings were used. Although large number of labour were needed for weed management in Conventional paddy, minimal labour was required for weed management in SRI paddy because of using weeders and machinery for weed management. While large amount of water to the tune of 2”-5” inundation was required for Conventional paddy cultivation, a film of water up to 1” only is maintained throughout in SRI paddy cultivation. The use of pesticides was heavy in Conventional paddy cultivation, where as the pest management is done without chemical pesticides in SRI paddy cultivation. The profits attained due to SRI paddy cultivation was higher as compared to Conventional paddy cultivation, therefore, SRI paddy was called as poor farmers’ crop.

Abstract: The problems by the presence of mining companies is not only inflicting damages to nature, but also causing damages to the social environment. This research aims to study the social injustice by the presence of mining companies in Tayan Hilir of Sanggau District in Indonesia. This research used the qualitative approach with a descriptive method. This research data retrieval used purposif technique in which the data was taken from both the informant of the companies and the relocated communities. Then, it was processed using qualitative analysis with described the social injustice by the presence of mining companies. The results explain the social injustices of government policies which favoured the compannies by giving capital and supports which lead them more superior and acting half "force" against the the communities. Whereas, the communities who have limited information and power to bargain got harmed in economical side. They lost their livelihood that was previously available, this occurs because the new area of relocation is not suitable for their livelihood. Based on facts, the land concessions in Semerah village did not match with the contract agreement. The company offered a relocation area but it is remote and there are no public facilities. In addition, ownership status of the land is not clear.

Abstract: This paper aims to attempt systemic functional analysis of clause complex in news texts adopting Hallidayan linguistic perspective. News language may contain lexical and grammatical ambiguities that arise because of the use of technical terms that may cause confusion among their readers. Because news texts are written, they have more complex grammars and do not use pauses, stresses, intonations and tones of speech as those in spoken language. Here lies the reason behind the difficulty of meaning that people might face and then they try to interpret it in more than one meaning. According to Leech (1981:30), “An expression is said to be ambiguous when more than one interpretation can be assigned to it”. Now, comes the role of clause complex to resolve the problems by analyzing the modes of meaning in those texts.

Abstract: It has been observed by several researchers that office design has an impact on employee’s productivity. But in the context of Pakistan this effect was not identifies up to higher extent, especially in the banking sector. Therefore the major reason for writing this paper is to analyze the impact of office design on the employees of Islamic banks operating in Pakistan, and after studying prior research work a systematic research model was developed having eight independent and one dependent variable. However collecting data from the Islamic banks was not easy, but through the analysis of prior research work we became able to develop closed ended questionnaire which were circulated among the employees of Islamic banks. The type of investigation we performed was causal and after the analysis of collected data through SPSS we have found that data is reliable for conducting research and through the implementation of regression on the selected data we have concluded that all the factors associated with the office design except office furniture, office equipment and communication does not have any impact on employees productivity in the Islamic banking sector of Pakistan.

Abstract: This comparative study examined the policies and challenges of SMEs operating in Zimbabwe and South Korea. Data were collected using focus group discussions, document analysis, interviews and observations. The sample of the study constitutes of SMEs operating in urban areas of Seoul and Ansan, Harare and Chinhoyi of South Korea and Zimbabwe respectively. The major findings revealed that SMEs in the two countries face similar major challenges what differs is that they operate in different policy environments. This research concludes that South Korea’s policies are more supportive to the SMEs sector and hence has led to a miracle economic growth as well as lower mortality rate of SMEs in South Korea while Zimbabwe’s policies are less supportive resulting in higher failure rate of SMEs. The study recommends an econometric investigation of the utility of the traditional production model in SMEs in the two economies. The economic model {Q=f (K, L)} states that growth (Q) is a function of Technology (K) and Labour (L).

Abstract: Recently, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) of Brain is used widely in the clinical applications for the detection of abnormalities such as tumor. Accurate segmentation of the affected regions in the brain MRI image plays a vital role in the quantitative image analysis to detect the location of tumor in the brain. However, many segmentation algorithms suffer from limited accuracy, due to the presence of noise and intensity inhomogeneity in the brain MR images. This paper proposes a novel Textural Pixel Connectivity (TPC) based segmentation technique to predict the location of brain tumor. The Probabilistic Neural Network (PNN) classifier is used to classify the normal and abnormal images. If the image is classified as abnormal, then TPC segmentation process is applied for clustering out the background and tumor spot in the binary segmented output. Then, the growing pattern of tumor is analyzed and represented as a binary image output. The proposed technique achieves superior performance in terms of sensitivity, specificity, accuracy, error rate, correct rate, inconclusive rate, Positive Predicted Values (PPV), Negative Predicted Values (NPV), classified rate, prevalence, positive likelihood and negative likelihood, when compared to the traditional Adaboost and Enhanced Adaboost techniques.

Abstract: Simplex Method of Linear Programming is a repetitive optimizing technique to determine the possible output in order to maximize a profit in a business plan. A good foundation in Mathematics is the main tool in getting the solution. Many papers aimed to find out the Mathematics performance and the factors affecting the learner’s performance and yet this problem remained unsolved. The objective of this paper is to analyze the common errors committed by the Second Year Bachelor of Science in Accountancy students at the University of Northern Philippines. The scores of the written examination of the respondents were interpreted using error analysis. It was found out that the common errors are: basic application of the operations of numbers, determining the entering variable, miscopied values, incomplete variables in the final answer, and unfinished solution. These errors maybe due to ignorance to the rules in applying the simplex method. The study recommends giving higher percentage to basic operations in the total score of the written examination of students, Furthermore, the College should give seminars to the Accountancy students on how to manage their time in solving Mathematical problems.

Abstract: We present, in this paper, effective edge detection methods using type 2 fuzzy inference systems which are known for their uncertainty handling ability. These methods are clubbed up with morphological gradient to enhance their edge detection capabilities. We emphasize on the application of generalized type 2 fuzzy system to the image and detection of edge. We then compare the Morphological Gradient with the type 1 fuzzy system, integrated interval type 2 fuzzy system (Interval type 2 fuzzy logic applied upon Morphological Gradient Technique) and generalized type 2 fuzzy system (Generalized type 2 fuzzy logic applied upon Morphological Gradient Technique). Also these edge detectors are tested on images added with 0.001 white gaussian noise and salt and pepper noise. Recall, precision and PFOM are also calculated for each system and compared.

Abstract: Linkage of newly diagnosed HIV positive individuals to HIV care and treatment services is essential to initiate lifesaving antiretroviral therapy and thereby reduce HIV transmission. However, program data has shown that only 38% of newly diagnosed HIV patients in Kenya are linked to care. Case management model, a model with proven efficacy, uses case managers to provide strength based counseling that enable individuals identify their internal strengths and assets needed to facilitate linkage and enhance retention. This evaluation seeks to test the efficacy of using case managers in increasing linkage and early retention to HIV care among newly diagnosed HIV positive individuals at a referral hospital in Western Kenya within one year and including a six month follow up period by comparing linkage and retention rates among HIV infected persons who receive case managers to those who did not. A step-wedged design will be employed at 12 of the 24 hospital departments. This will be done by introducing the intervention in a phased approach by testing site. A minimum of 672 HIV infected persons will be recruited. Linkage to care will be defined as a recorded encounter at the HIV clinic’s enrolment registry. Participants will be considered retained in care after attending two or more visits over a six month period. Data on participant characteristics, linkage and retention proportions and their associated factors will be analyzed in the early and late intervention groups. Results from this evaluation will provide information on improving linkage and retention rates among HIV infected patients.

Abstract: Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) may be viewed as a neuro developmental disability that can affect social interaction, language (or) behavioral skills of children. Most autistic children show symptoms of withdrawal from social interaction and a lack of emotional empathy towards others. The underlying causes of ASD are still not well understood but an alarming number of children are diagnosed and also suffered from this disorder. Among the fundamental social impairments in the ASD are challenges appropriately recognizing and responding to nonverbal cues and communication. Several existing assistive devices mostly serve as remedial tool that provides a learning environment for autistic children to learn about the norms and difficulties of social behavior. However this tool lacks the capability to operate in conjunction with real world scenarios. So we proposed a new intervention paradigm that act as a portable system called facial expression recognition system that recognizes virtual reality (VR) based facial expressions in a synchronous manner and also to break the dependency of an autistic child by enhancing expression based accessing and controlling process in this modern environment.

Abstract: Foot-and-Mouth disease (FMD) is one of the world’s most important infectious animal diseases especially cloven-hooved livestock caused by picornavirus and responsible for huge global losses of livestock production and trade, as well as frequent and highly disruptive large-scale epidemics. Bee (Apis mellifera) venom therapy is an alternative form of healing to treat various diseases. Bee venom contains at least active components which have some pharmaceutical properties; the most significant components of bee venom which have antiviral properties like mellitin, phospholipase A2 (PLA2) and Protease inhibitor. Melittin is main active component and the powerful stimulator of phospholipase A2 that destroys phospholipids and dissolves the cell membrane of the agent. Protease inhibitor inhibits the activity of different proteases like trypsin, chymotprypsin, plasmin, thrombin, thus decreasing inflammation. In this work, Egyptian bee venom (Apis mellifera lamarckii venom) was obtained from VACSERA used as a treatment against FMDV-O in Egypt. There are improvements in hematological, biochemical and histopathological tests, the clinical signs are decreased in the treatment period and the virus load is more significance decreases. So this study proved that the bee venom used as natural medicine has been developed to fulfill recent medical requirements without noticed side effects. Bees have been appreciated for their medicinal purposes as a treatment for many diseases and restoring the vitality of the body.

Abstract: In Nigerian, most roads are in bad shapes leading to negative economic effects. One of the factors affecting vehicle maintenance is bad road network in Nigeria. The economic effects of bad road networks in Nigeria are studied. The estimated current total road network in Nigeria is about 194,000 kilometers. The analysis showed that about 19% of Nigerian roads are paved. All unpaved roads which is about 13% are bad roads. Both the paved and the unpaved roads in Nigeria are deteriorating by the day and has become a source of worry to all vehicle users. Annual losses (from vehicle maintenance), due to bad roads is valued at over N133.8billion. This is outside all other economic losses from bad roads in the areas of air Pollution, delayed movements, armed robbery and incessant accidents on the roads. Out of a total of 703 respondents, over 51 % had their cars damaged in a month due to bad roads in their areas. By extension, about 51% of vehicle users in Nigeria will experience one or more damages to the vehicles in a month. This should be of great concern to any serious government.

Abstract: Transformation is the transfer from one place to another, and cause changes on an object that has been plagued by such things. So the transformation can cause changes in a particular object. Such changes also occurred in the local community who are able to transform the values of the local culture, especially the culture of Papua. Cultural values in the form of: 1) the work ethic; 2) mutual cooperation; 3) openness; 4) preservation of value; 5) kinship; and 6) the pattern of consumption, it is very attached and form a distinctive characteristic of social behavior ethnic Papuans. This study aims to analyze the process of transformation of local cultural values takes place within the Office of Licensing Services Agency One Stop (BPPTSP) Jayapura city government. The approach used is a qualitative approach. The focus of this study examines the process of transformation of local cultural values takes place in the Integrated Licensing Services Agency One Stop (BPPTSP) Jayapura city government. This study uses depth interview, observation and documentation. Data were analyzed through qualitative data analysis include data reduction, organizing data, and interpretation of data. The results of this study indicate that the process of transformation of local culture into the culture of the organization BPPTSP happen through two ways; first, through the design and local government intervention, both, through a process of acculturation.

Abstract: This article describes the anthropological perspective in the study of the organization, particularly related to the culture of the organization. Organizational culture is a reflection of the organization itself. Anthropology as a science that covers the study of culture takes an important role in the development of cultural studies organization. An ethnographic approach that looks at the phenomenon based on what the owner or the perpetrator of culture will provide a positive contribution in the study of organizational culture in the form of findings regarding the ambiguous attitude, political dynamics, creation, modification, and the role of actors in the organization. Ethnographic analysis will explain the differentiation of attitudes and behavior of members of the organization are understood as a cultural organization. Paradigm competing in this study from the perspective of anthropology is the functionalist form of assessment of the functional elements in the organization as a whole that make up the organization, interpretivism that studies the form of meaning basic assumption, the value system and philosophy of the organization to guide the work on every member of the organization and interactionism in the form of studies on the interaction of members based on the meaning of the symbols of the organization that is widely understood by members of the organization. Various paradigms are emphasizing that how anthropology contribute in the study of the organization, especially in today's modern organizations.
