Abstract: ‘Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission’ (TRMM) satellite was launched in 1997 as a joint mission between the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) to gather rain statistics across the tropics. To date, TRMM has produced a nearly continuous tropical rainfall dataset utilizing several onboard instruments including the TRMM Precipitation Radar (PR), a first-of-its-kind space borne Ku-band (13.8 GHz) meteorological radar based on phased array technology. The aim of this research is to analyze PR measurements over Iraq. Data were downloaded from the University of Utah site of TRMM measurements. Analysis of monthly means of precipitation measurements over Iraq for the period 1998-2011. The results showed that most precipitation falls over Iraq during winter season and it is characterized by very light to light rain and mostly falls over north part of the country. The highest area of precipitation happens during the months of April. The results also indicted that the variations and activities precipitation occur mostly during afternoon and evening times. The vertical structure for diurnal variation showed that the highest contribution of the 20 dBz reflectivity occurred in altitudes between 0.5 and 5 km while for seasonal variation the maximum contribution occurred in altitude from 1.5 to 5 km during rainy season over the zone. The vertical structure for 40 dBz reflectivity showed the maximum contribution for diurnal variation occurred in altitude between 1.5 and 2.5 km for most times of the day, and for the seasonal variation, the month of April showed the highest contribution of 40 dBz reflectivity and occurred in altitude between 1.5 and 3.5 km over the zone.

Abstract: This article discusses the in vitro tools and methods used to conserve the genetic diversity of rare and threatened plant species from around the world. Species that are on the brink of extinction because of the rapid loss of genetic diversity and habitat come mainly from resource-poor areas of the world and from global biodiversity hotspots and island countries. These species are unique because they are endemic, and only a few small populations or sometimes only a few individuals remain in the wild. This compilation of articles describes the efforts in the diverse regions toward saving plants from extinction, and details the direct application of in vitro and cryopreservation methods. In addition, these contributions provide guidance on propagation of rare plants, including techniques for large-scale propagation, storage, and reintroduction. The in vitro techniques for conserving plant biodiversity include shoot apical or axillary-meristem based micropropagation, somatic embryogenesis, cell culture technologies and embryo rescue techniques, as well as a range of in vitro cold storage and cryopreservation protocols, and they are discussed in depth in this article.

Abstract: Acute ureteric colic caused by ureteric calculus disease is a commonly encountered clinical problem. Ultrasonography is one of the treatment modality available in the evaluation of patients with acute urologic disorders. Color Doppler Ultrasonography is an advancement of the conventional ultrasonography in which the Doppler Effect is employed. It can be used to visualize "ureteric jets". The purpose of this study is to describe the usefulness of color Doppler ultrasound and serum creatinine in evaluation of patients with ureteric calculi.This descriptive study was conducted using 83 patients with calculus disease, aged 20-60 years. All the patients underwent X-ray KUB and color Doppler sonography with ureteral jet assessments and their serum creatinine levels were obtained. The frequency of jets, peak ureteric jet velocity and the duration of the ureteric jet in seconds was measured.According to the results, there were no significant differences in mean serum creatinine values among various degrees of hydronephrosis (p=0.510). There was a significant association between the ureteric jet status with the degree of hydronephrosis (p=0.001). Hence the assessment of ureteric jet on ultrasound, along with serum creatinine, is useful in the assessment of the degree of hydronephrosis in evaluation of patients with ureteric calculi.

Abstract: This paper presents a study which examines several e-government success factors in developing countries. Developing countries in the Middle East have a history of commitment to good governance and ICT-related initiatives. But still there is very little research that examines what businesses use in terms of e-government and issues and constraints that they face, plus that e-government projects failure cases mostly happen in developing countries, hence there is a need to give a great deal of attention to these countries to make e-government projects successful. For a better understanding of e-government and its influence on the society as all and on the business society in particular the researchers carried out a study to propose a conceptual model for e-government success and to identify the success factors which affect e-government success from a business perspective in developing countries, and to investigate the factors that determine business organization satisfaction towards e-government in developing countries. In this paper the researchers will discuss four factors that affect the success of e-government services from businesses perspective in developing countries as followed: information quality, perceived ease of use, personalization and trust.

Abstract: In this paper, we define the total degree (TD) of a vertex in the join of two interval valued fuzzy graphs (IVFGs) and investigate their totally regular property (TRP). In general, the join of two totally regular IVFGs need not be a totally regular interval valued fuzzy graph (TRIVFG). We obtain some necessary and sufficient conditions for the join of two TRIVFGs to be totally regular.

Abstract: Lognormal Distribution is widely used in scientific investigation. Rao and D’Cunha (2016) reported that the Bayes credible intervals are also confidence intervals when the sample size is moderate to large. In this paper we have investigated whether the same conclusion holds for the censored data under random censoring. Extensive Monte Carlo simulation indicates that the result does not hold under random censoring. Leukemia free survival time for Allogeneic transplant patients reported in Klein and Moeschberger (2003) is reanalyzed and the results indicate that Bayes estimate of the median survival time is close to the Kaplan Meier estimator.

Abstract: Applicability of fluidization methods in rewetting low moisture polished rice was investigated using a recirculating fluidized bed. The sphericity of polished rice was calculated using Ergun's equation to determine the effective diameter. The calculated frictional pressure drop agreed well with the observed data. The sorption characteristics were investigated under fluidizing conditions at different air temperatures and relative humidities. Sorption data were fitted to the first falling rate period drying equation with a standard error of estimate of the moisture content of polished rice ranging from 0.06 to 0.14% d.b. and the sorption coefficient followed the Arrhenius type temperature dependency. The results showed that the fluidization techniques could be effectively used for rewetting low moisture polished rice.

Abstract: Electrical properties such as dielectric constant, dielectric loss of soils has been measured at an automated x band microwave set-up in TE10 mode operating at 10 GHz. It is measured for different moisture content. Soil samples are collected from agricultural land of Nasik region. Soil samples were analyzed for physical and chemical properties for the status of available micro nutrients. Correlations between electrical and physical properties of soil samples were reported. It is observed that dielectric constant increases with increase in moisture content slowly up to transition moisture then it increases rapidly with increase in moisture content. Also dielectric loss is directly proportional to the ac microwave conductivity and transition temperature. It has been found that emissivity decreases with increase in moisture content. In the field of remote sensing and agriculture, results obtained are useful.

Abstract: Keongan is a kind of roof ventilation usually used in indonesian local houses. In a humid tropical climate, in general, the building is designed with natural ventilation system that maximizes the speed of wind in order to cooling the building structure or reach the achievement of physiological comfort. Some of the building design features in a tropical climate, such as the existence of wide openings, roofs with a slope angle, have a plafond, and maximizing the shades around the building. The density of buildings is one of the factors which affect the principle of micro-climatic conditions and determine the conditions of ventilation and air temperature. Heat symptoms in main cities affected by urban density rather than the size of the city itself, the more dense, the worse the condition of the building ventilation. Architecture of buildings, tried to adapt to the nature and tried to blend with nature. Norms, customs, climate, culture, beliefs and local materials will be given its own color in the development of vernacular architecture. The long journey through trial and error with the local genius, is capable to displaying it’s identity. Several features of houses in Semarang Village include : symmetrical floorplans extends to the rear, circulation straight from front to rear, limasan roof or saddle roof, three openings (doors) on the facade, door consists of two doors, Ornaments eaves (lisplank) on the front facade, the Consul made of iron or wood with the formation of ornamentation, Ornaments on bouven above the door. The results of this study, the shape of gable roofs are part keongan utilized for the air stream that is useful to cool the hot air under the roof at once will lower the temperature in the house. Roof ventilation in Semarang houses mainly applied keongan and openings in the ceiling to circulate the hot air out of the building. Roof ventilation in the form of air cushion roof due to the formation of a high roof space. High roof shape with a roof ve

Abstract: The noble metal gold and silver nanoparticles have been successfully prepared using a bio-derived product-Active Manuka honey 20+ UMFR. Manuka honey is well recognized for its beneficial properties over and above mixed flora honey for use in wound treatment. Having been found to offer effective antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and debridement properties as a dressing, it is only the medical grade Active Manuka honey that should be used in open wounds. A high UMFR grading above 10+ is recommended for wounds. The formation of silver and gold nanoparticles has been confirmed using UV–vis, SEM and FTIR analysis and its antibacterial activity was evaluated against Enterococcus faecalis, Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli. Silver and gold nanoparticles showed a clear well defined inhibition zone compared to control. The results suggest the stabilized and reduced molecules of silver and gold nanoparticles may act as an effective antibacterial agent for wound healing.

Abstract: Due to limited availability of natural fuels like Gasoline, diesel, LPG etc, scientists are going to research on agricultural based fuels. Many countries like Brazil, USA, New Zealand, India, etc, are using alcohols blended gasoline and biodiesel blended diesel. The increase in capacity of the distilleries to produce fuel-grade and chemical grade ethanol will immensely increase the water pollution problem ,due to generation of large volume of distillery waste water (DWW) having high biological oxygen demand(BOD), chemical oxygen demand (COD) with high color intensity.


Abstract: Handloom industry plays a vital role in the socio-cultural and economic life of the people. It is dependent on manual labor and here the major contribution comes from women. The present study was conducted on women workers, who perform the activities in handloom industry of Lakhimpur district of Assam to find out the musculo-skeletal problems and perceived joint discomfort of their body due to uncomfortable working postures. Various parameters observed were weight, height, angle of deviation, time and body mass index (BMI).A five point scale given by Vergese et al (1995) was used to record the musculo- skeletal problems and perceived joint discomfort. A sample of 40 women workers of Lakhimpur districtAssam was selected for the study through multistage random sampling. Statisticalanalysis of the data are employed through frequency, percentage, mean, standard deviation, critical difference and co-efficient of correlation.Maximum joint discomfort was found in the waist(4.02)followed by finger (3.85),wrist (3.55),elbow (3.47), shoulder (3.45), and in knee(2.72) respectively while performing different activities in handloom. About 47.5% respondents perceived very severe pain in back. Less than 45% respondents made complaint of severe pain in low back. The 57.6% respondents made complain of moderate pain in leg followed by mild pain in fingers (32.5%) and knee (12.5%).

Abstract: In consequence of what was explained as serious deterioration of fish stock and destruction of fish-breeding grounds, the government decided to enact and implement severe measures that would undoubtedly protect marine resources against destructive fishing methods. In practice, this attempt meant that, all fishers who used gears that were categorised as destructive should either stop from accessing fish from the lake or buy non-destructive gears, a condition that was seemingly impossible for many poor artisanal fishers in Tanzania. This attempt therefore compelled many who were employed in this sector to turn into other alternative means of livelihood for survival. This paper examines the strategies that have been employed by the fishing community in eking out their living as a response to restrictive measures from 2005 to date. The findings in this paper are fundamentally qualitative derived from a survey which was conducted in the Musira Island from September 2015 to June, 2016. In general terms, it was found that, a number of socio-cultural, economic, and illegitimate coping strategies were crafted out of desperation for survival as a result. Victims through their interpretation of the situation they faced and their power to manipulate it, they were somewhat able to endure the shocks initially presented by the government’s intervention. The paper recommends that, for marine resource protection policies to work, before disrupting the dominant fishing livelihood strategy for people in the coast for whichever reasons, attempts to create another culturally informed and consented strategy is vital in ensuring the sustainability of protected resources.

Abstract: A major concern often overshadowing universities during the past three decades has been dealing with issues surrounding sexual harassment. Generally, universities have developed policies that sanction “unwanted sexual attention” and that prohibit working and, increasingly, learning environments which are held to be “hostile” to women. During this same period, a literature has emerged which has called on universities to expand the definition of sexual harassment to include a ban on intimate relationships between students and academic staff. It is against this backdrop where the apprehension of this paper is anchored. This paper which capitalises on a methodical analysis and review of secondary proceedings critiques the intellectual underpinnings of the banning movement and explores the underlying psychosocial dynamics which have propelled the movement forward. It contends that, the ban undermines students’ self-determination and actualisation, and that; the right to form adult consensual intimate relationship is a fundamental personal freedom which must be honored and protected so long as each party does not fall a victim or compromise the responsibilities bestowed to each.

Abstract: Internet technology has enabled the employees to work more efficiently and to prove themselves to be more productive. In this study, job characteristics are combined with role stressors in single modal. The purpose of this study was to explore whether all five core values of job characteristics and three types of role stressors serve as the predictors of cyberloafing behavior of employees at workplace or not. It is hypothesized separately that job characteristics and role stressors has impact on cyberloafing. Data was collected from PTCL employees who have access to internet at workplace. It is found that out of five core values of job characteristics (skill variety, task identity, task significance, job autonomy, and feedback) only skill variety and job autonomy have impact. Furthermore, out of three types of role stressors (role ambiguity, role overload, and role conflict), role ambiguity and role conflict were found to have impact on cyberloafing. Implication for employers and employees both are discussed as well.


Abstract: V.S.Naipaul's A Bend in the river talks of Africa in four parts:The Second Rebellion; The New Domain; The Big Man and Battle. In all the parts, he basically reflects the rebel and the conflict which goes on in the minds of the Protogonist, which can be generalised to the Africans and the outsiders. The fiction starts with the thought that “the world is what it is; men who are nothing who allow themselves to become nothing, have no place in it (p.3). The narrator—Salim, an ethnically Indian Muslim was a long resident on the coast of Central Africa. He talks about post-colonial time-- the time of independence when life was not easy, and Africa have had its own troubles. He talks about a 'Town' in the interior--at the bend in the great river, whose existence had come to a standstill. Naipaul talks of this town as a natural meeting place-- for people,and do the trade.

Abstract: Banditry is one of the biggest security challenges currently facing Kenya and East African sub-region. The practice is creating great concerns and has resulted into loss of human lives, stealing livestock, destruction of property and dislocation of populations. The thrust of the paper is, rustling and banditry has contributed to a state of violence and lawlessness thus creating insecurity and threatening lives of the residents. The availability of weapons in the hands of bandits has not only contributed in fueling instability, lawlessness and conflict but also pose a threat to sustainable development. Geopolitical issues that wrap together poverty, political instability and lawlessness. The states are found caught up in the whole issue to provide effective control leaving the perpetrators to have a field day. The scenario is given impetus by the fact that bandits have transformed their operations becoming more sophisticated, militarized and destructive. The rapture of the vice is traceable through colonialism and post colonial period. In the concluding reflection measures are recommended for the governments to eradicate the problem.

Abstract: The position of a point after some rotation about the origin can simply be obtained by multiplyingits coordinates with a matrix. One reason for introducing homogeneous coordinates is tobe able to describe translation with a matrix so that multiple transformations, whether each is arotation or a translation, can be concatenated into one described by the product of their respectivematrices. However, in some applications (such as spaceship tracking), we need only be concernedwith rotations of an object, or at least independently from other transformations. In such a situation,we often need to extract the rotation axis and angle from a matrix which represents theconcatenation of multiple rotations. The homogeneous transformation matrix, however, is not wellsuited for the purpose.

Abstract: In recent years, Agile Methodology for software development has been embraced by many organizations where traditional waterfall approach has failed. Agile method promises higher software quality, reduced risk and more cost savings as compared to waterfall. Many organizations using Agile have realized these benefits for online transactional processing (OLTP) applications and have recently tried to apply this method and gain benefits for online analytical processing (OLAP) or data warehouse applications. In this paper, we aim to explain the challenges faced during development in datwarehousing projects using waterfall approach and how best the agile methodology can be applied for these types of projects.

Abstract: Data warehouse forms an integrated environment where data from disparate systems is bought together and presented in a consistent matter. Based on the data present in the warehouse business users want to make key decisions. In order to support these decisions, quality of data in warehouse must be reliable. If there are issues in data loaded in warehouse, business users lose trust and the information from the warehouse becomes unreliable. One of the essential components of data warehouse is the (Extract, Transform and Load) ETL process. This process is used in most organizations to load data into the warehouse. An ETL is a complex process in itself and one which is most time consuming during the building of the data warehouse. It allows the data in the warehouse to be refreshed on the periodic basis (daily, ‘maintained and there is no data loss every time data is loaded into the warehouse using ETL.

Abstract: Words play a vital role in our everyday lives. They pursue, convince and change opinions. A good marketer is one who knows how best to get his products understood, sold and owned in future. This is where advertising steps in with its copywriting techniques and creative wordplay to access a wider market than otherwise. This study mainly focuses on print and electronic ad campaigns and the creative use of copywriting for brand identification. 515 respondents accurately filled questionnaires; P-Value for copywriting variable is less than the value for the level of significance which is 0.05 proving that the copywriting efforts of the brands have a powerful influence over consumer base in Pakistan. This study is thus useful for most brands that do not focus much on their copywriting, slogans, jingles and product descriptions and is a point of thinking for those who completely ignore the cultural influences of this market.

Abstract: Beam like structures have wide application in engineering field. Earliest detection of damage is to avoid catastrophic failure in the structures. To predict the failure, changes in the dynamic responses are required to be analysed by using vibration analysis. Beam like structures have different type of loadings that may cause cracks in the beam. To ensure durable, safety and flawless performance during the lifetime of the beam like structures, it is mandatory to take care of cracks, inherent flaw and air voids in the structure. In case, if there is a pre-existing crack in the structure, mass and stiffness of the structure gets altered there by mode shape and natural frequency of the structure gets changed. In this work, vibration analysis of both un-cracked and cracked cantilever beam were done by commercially available Finite Element Analysis (FEA) software ANSYS. Natural frequency of the beam was obtained from vibration analysis. Beam having single edged notch at various locations were analysed and the results were compared with un-cracked beam. From the results, it is inferred that the fundamental frequency of the cracked beam reduces when the crack location moves from free end to fixed end and it is due to the stiffness reduction of the beam.

Abstract: Tracking moving objects in video sequence is an important problem in computer vision, with applications in several fields, such as video surveillance and target tracking. As the shadows attached along with the moving object also have the same motion that of objects, the detection of shadows as foreground objects is very common and produce large errors in object localization and recognition. This paper introduces an effective method which uses the edge information to detect moving cast shadows for traffic sequences. The proposed method initially removes the boundary of the cast shadow, preserving object’s interior edges. The coarse object shapes are then reconstructed using the object interior edges. Finally, the cast shadow is detected by subtracting the reconstructed moving object from the change detection mask. The method is implemented and tested using three benchmark videos. The efficiency of the proposed method is compared with five other popular shadow detection methods and the results proved its superiority over others.

Abstract: In this paper the performance of a vapour compression refrigeration system with ZrO2 nanoparticles in the working fluid was studied. Nano refrigerant was synthesized on the basis of the concept of the nanofluids, which was prepared by mixing ZrO2 nanoparticles with R152a refrigerant. The conventional refrigerant R134a has a global warming potential (GWP) of 1300 whereas R152a has a significant reduced value of GWP of 140 only. ZrO2nanoparticles with R152a refrigerant were used in R134a refrigeration system. The system performance with nanoparticles was then investigated. The results indicated that ZrO2 nano refrigerant works normally and safely in the system. The ZrO2 nanoparticle concentration is an important factor considered for heat transfer enhancement in the refrigeration system. The concentration of nano ZrO2 ranges between 0.01% and 0.06% volume concentration with particle size of 20 nm with R134a and R152a was studied. The coefficient of performance of the system was significantly improved with 33.45% when 0.06%volume concentration of ZrO2 with R152a refrigerant was used. The discharge temperature of the R152a/ZrO2 Nano refrigerant was nearly same as that of R134a. The usage of R152a with zero ozone depleting potential and very low Global Warming Potential provides a green and clean environment.

Abstract: This study estimated the impact of rural infrastructure investment on rice production in Pakistan by using Cobb Douglas production function for 1972-2014 in Pakistan. Different tests are used to check the stationarity of time series data. Autoregressive distributive lag (ARDL) technique is employed to estimate long run and short run relationship. It is observed that good infrastructure is encouraging the rice production in Pakistan. The study found that fertilizer usage, water availability for rice, area under rice production and health expenditure has positive whereas electricity consumption has negative effect on the rice production in the long run. However, impact of electricity on rice production is found positive in the short run but this impact is minute due to the unavailability of electricity, load shedding and some other reasons. All variables are affecting positively in the short run except fertilizer consumption.
