Abstract: Western Media has always propagated incidents of honour-killings in order to tarnish the image of Muslim communities in the West without taking into account the actual social and psychological aspects that instigate the crimes. The present research will study the socio-psychological factors that motivate the perpetrators. This qualitative research work will employ the psychoanalytic literary criticism of the characters of ElifShafak’s novel Honour, especially Iskender, the matricide. The research aims at exploring the psyche of the character involved in order to determine the root-cause of his actions and behavior. The methodology adopted in this research work is analytical-cum-critical for psychoanalysis of characters with conceptual framework of theories of inferiority complexproposed by Alfred Adler. The research will be significant, as it will shed new light on Iskender’s character, from the unique perspective of the matricide.

Abstract: The existence of legal void in marriage law for Indonesian citizens who engage in inter-religion marriages raises legal uncertainty. Meanwhile, perhaps due to the fact that Indonesia has plural society, the number of potential couples who engagee to inter-religion marriages increases. The purpose of this study is to formulate the concept of legal norms protection for inter-religion marriages in Indonesia. The material of legal components consists of primary and secondary legal which obtained from literature study. We found that the state should provide a space which is recognized by every citizen to exercise his or her rights including the right to raise a family and the right to have freedom related to religion and belief. The basis of the recognition is that inter-religion marriage is philosophically justified because of human rights and it is legally required to provide legal certainty. Meanwhile, sociologically it is increasing in society.

Abstract: A black hole is a region in space-time. It’s a region from where nothing can escape not even time. Some physicist believes that this is due to the strong gravitational force exhibited by the black hole. It can also be observed that not even electromagnetic radiation such as light can’t escape from black hole. But I have a different view at this behavior of black hole and will also explain about the existence of more than one cosmos in this paper. Cosmos is very beautiful if we perform thought experiment, look inside it and concentrate we can observe things that can answer lots of our questions that have disturbed us from centuries. Like how many universes are there and how big is our cosmos. How time changes its speed at different positions in space and which phenomenon works behind it. What happens if we go inside a black hole? Where the antimatter did came from?

Abstract: Flooding continues to be a common environmental hazard in both developed and developing countries. Crops, settlement and infrastructure are usually impaired wherever flooding occur. The severity of damage as a result of floods has been documented to have a relationship with the flood magnitude, flood frequency and settlement of population on flood prone areas. Whereas various intervention measures have been implemented, the problem still persists. This is partly due to lack of adequate information on the extent of Lower Nzoia River Basin Flood Flows.

Abstract: In the traditional Mizo context, tribalism in the form of centralized political and sociological force was almost absent, since life was mainly based within one single village. People were connected by their cultural practices, geographical proximity, their evolving lingua franca and their ethnic bond. During the rule of the British, especially after conversion to the Christian faith, people began to experience tribal consciousness as a sociological factor, including the sense of belonging to one community, one nation and one people, especially among the Lusei clans who were former citizens of Sailo chieftainship. However, in the absence of any political platform and common political agenda, a sense of tribal identity lacked a political harmony. On the eve of Indian independence, the Mizos began to be sensitized to the political stirrings characterized by political dreams and aspirations. After the signing of the Peace Accord between the Mizoram underground government and the Indian Union, tribalism became characterized by an economic turn and almost all aspects of tribal consciousness became economic in nature, and so it remains today.

Abstract: Consistency is an important characteristic in height systems which the mean sea level (msl) surface cannot guarantee. Only a geoid surface can provide height consistency. The quality of geoid undulation (N) will obviously affect the resulting orthometric height (H) determined from GNSS. The geoid undulation may be global, regional/national and local. Online software CSRS-PPP was used for post processing rinex data. N^EGM2008was computed from AllTrans EGM2008 geoid calculator while h was used to compute N^GPS from the relationship N= h-H. H is the existing orthometric height. Twenty-four controls with FCT 260 P as base reference station were used for this study. The computed standard deviation of differences inN^GPS- N^EGM2008 (σ) is used as accuracy indicator and σ

Abstract: Industrialization has revolutionized the quality of life but also led to the increase in environmental pollution in the form of industrial waste. The effluents released from the industries include toxic compounds which get accumulated in soil and persist for years if not treated properly. These persisting, non-degradable compounds include the heavy metals which are mostly released into the soil from electronic industries in the form of E-waste. Electronic industries are the fast growing industries and the amount of the waste released from them is considerably high.

Abstract: This article discusses on the definition of subsidiary legislation in Malaysian administrative law, its advantages and how to challenge it. Subsidiary legislation is part of Malaysian legal sources that supplements the legislative function of Malaysian legal system. Although the Parliament and State Assembly are the main bodies that have been vested with the legislative power in Malaysia, other non-elected members are also conferred to exercise the same function to assist the Parliament and the State Assembly in their law making roles. The abundance of subsidiary legislation in the legal systems serve a great deal of benefits and advantages especially to ease the burden of the legislative bodies especially in dealing with the details of the law and also to gain expert views on certain issues. However the power mandated in the hands of these authorised bodies comprising of non-elected civil servants could also result in illegality and abuse of power, thus, this article attempts to outline grounds on which the subsidiary legislation can be challenged.

Abstract: This study was planned to identifying the Microorganisms are present in oral cavity as normal microflora. However the fact that they become harmful due to some oral infections made us to investigate the inhibitory effect of orange juice extract on them. Total 20 samples were collected. Samples were taken from patients suffering from throat infection. On the basis of morphological variations 6 strains were selected and were tested for their sensitivity against orange juice extract. Some strains are resistant but 3 strains were sensitive against orange juice extract. Aqueous layer of juice extract proved to be more effective in their antibacterial activity on studied strains as compared to methanolic ones. Minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) values of these extracts were also determined. Moreover, these fruit extracts also tested for their antibacterial activity against clinical isolates and proved to have significant inhibitory effect on growth of these isolated bacteria, providing an alternative to treat various infections caused by these antibiotic resistant strains. Hence this study also enhances the nutrition value of orange juice because orange juice provides the resistance against some kind of oral bacteria.

Abstract: The implementation of green computing-based information systems in the school environment is still low. This is marked by the use of paper that is still liked by the school. For this reason, it is necessary to design information systems based on green computing to archive letters that have been created or received by schools. The letter that has been archived will make it easier for schools to search, avoid losing files when moving from one person to another. Those who have authority in archiving will certainly be easy to monitor.

Abstract: The incidence of oral cancer is increasing dramatically over the past years. According to National Cancer Registry Programme of Indian Council of Medical Research(ICMR), the mortality rate due to cancer has increased by approximately 6% between 2012 and 2014. The long term survival rates of oral cancer is less than 50%. Increased rate of morbidity and mortality is mainly due to the occurrence of multiple primary tumors and locally recurrent cancers. The concept of “field cancerization” by Slaughter et al. explains the mechanism by which second primary tumors develops. The presence of a ‘field’ with genetically altered cells appears to be a continuous risk factor for cancer. Detection and monitoring of these fields may have profound implications for cancer prevention. Here is a case report of “field cancerization” phenomenon.

Abstract: A comparative study was conducted to know and compare the different personality traits designated by the students of vedic and formal education system. A differential design is employed in this study. Major findings of the study depicts that, majority of the students of vedic educational system show high level of personality traits like extroversion, agreeableness, conscientiousness and openness to experience, while the students of formal educational system have shown low level of these personality traits. The results clearly depict that vedic system has succeed in molding the child personality in a desired way as the primary aim of any system of education is to be development of a wholesome personality.

Abstract: The COMESA pact brought together twenty one countries with the aim of easing trade between them. This was aimed at creating more trade in terms of volume flows across the borders within the COMESA region through removal of tariff and non-trade barriers. However, trade volume statistics, with regard to sugar trade in this region indicates that member states do not benefit mutually. Sugar statistics in the region between member states indicate that industries that receive supportive domestic mechanisms had an edge over those that do not in the regional sugar market.

Abstract: Gap junctions are proteins made of connexins which are involved in the regulation of vascular function. Deletion of connexins 43 (Cx43) modifies expression of genes known to be involved in the regulation of the vasculature, differentiation and function of vascular cells. Interestingly, mutant mice lacking endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) gene have been shown to be hypertensive, suggesting that nitric oxide (NO) plays a role in the physiological control of blood pressure. It was therefore hypothesised that the endothelial deletion of Cx43 in the pulmonary vasculature induces endothelial dysfunction and causes eNOS impairment thereby reducing NO biosynthesis, thus leading to vasoconstriction and vascular remodelling which subsequently leads to the development of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH).
