Abstract: The article is about the flow characteristics analysis of a particular domain in presence of different shapes of structures by performing a two-equation [K-] model simulation. Three different types of structures (rectangular, triangular, and ellipse) are used to make the blockage of the flow. After the creation of the geometry through Ansys Fluent Software in presence of the structures, the domain is prepared by meshing the water phase with centimeters and the air phase with 70 centimeters of cell size. Then the model is set up for a two-equation K- model to run by applying proper boundary conditions. With a successful run, the model shows the flow contour, which indicates velocity, vorticity, pressure, turbulence intensity, and turbulence kinetic energy inside the domain.

Abstract: This study delves into the political landscape of Kenya, focusing on the historical background, transition to a multiparty system, and current situation where ideological challenges clash with popular electoral promises. Kenyas post-independence political scene has been characterized by ethnic tensions and power struggles, leading to neopatrimonialism and arbitrary state leadership. The paper explores the evolution of Kenyas political system, the role of political parties, the semi-federal system, and the challenges posed by weak institutions and corruption. Ethnicity remains a contentious issue, and the rise of fake news has further complicated the democratic process. The study suggests implementing proportional representation, considering a parliamentary system, addressing patriarchal barriers for womens empowerment, and strengthening institutions to promote effective governance. In addition, fostering national unity and shared identity is essential to overcoming ethnic divisions and advancing towards a more democratic and inclusive society in Kenya.

Abstract: "Marriage Isbat" is the determination of a marriage. The essence of the marriage certificate is the determination that a marriage has occurred and not the legalization of a marriage. The meaning of ratification and determination have different legal consequences. Interpreting Marriage Isbat by stipulation shows that the process of itsbat nikah is solely carried out for an administrative function. The theory of the rule of law and the theory of justice are the basis for analysis of the application of law as a legal construction in considering cases of consanguinity marriages, so a wise and appropriate juridical analysis and application of law is needed.

Abstract: Background: Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic inflammatory disease that affects the hand joints and leading to impairment in hand function and reduce grip strength. Rheumatoid arthritis mostly affects small joints resulting in structural damage of metacarpophalangeal joint (MCP) resulting in ulnar deviation. Orthosis are designed to maintain the hand function but mostly the resting hand orthoses which are available hinders the activities of daily living. Hence, a modified dynamic wrist hand orthosis was designed keeping in mind that it does not restrict any activity and is helpful in correcting the alignment of hand by restoring biomechanical balance and reducing tissue stress thereby improving grip strength and hand function of patients with rheumatoid arthritis.

Abstract: The aim of this compendium is to provide a toolbox that is not predefined, but one that is flexible and adaptable to the needs of planning different actions (understanding and formulating hypotheses on the causes of the phenomenon, a review of reference theories for the definition of a research design, programming and designing a plan of action in social policies, the development of further and subsequent reflections and revisions of theories in the field of 'social control', structured knowledge in the field). On the basis of an order chosen for expository convenience, the different ways in which some sociologists (or at least scholars of social systems), among the precursors, the classics and the contemporaries, have contributed to the understanding of the structure of 'social control' are analysed (but with different depths depending on the relevance of the contribution), so that different and varied strategies (policies, programmes and projects) of achieving conformity, uniformity and obedience to rules, laws and customs can be hypothesised in order to ensure an equitable, stable, sustainable, safe, just and inclusive coexistence, with the help of (local) design activities in social work.
