    Heavy metals toxicity can lower energy levels and damage the functioning of the brain, lungs, kidney, liver, blood composition and other important organs. Heavy metal pollutants are one of the most common and hazardous water pollutant mainly lead, which has toxic impact on the organs of water bodies viz gills of a common fresh water teleost like sa Heteropneustus (Saccobranchus) fossilis. In the order to assess the chronic effects of lead 1/5th of LC50 for 96 hours as sub lethal concentration for 30 days have been used and the Histopathological alterations examined. Bioassays were performed to determine the LC50 values and sublethal concentrations of the lead. The LC50 values for Heteropneustesfossilis were 15.0 mg/l and 3.0 mg/l. The concentration was selected for chronic studies. The results of this present study indicate that the lead is the main source of pollution in pond water and cause of many diseases in aquatic living organisms. This study will be useful to understand the toxicity and to developing a practical procedure and data estimating to safe concentration to be utilized. This study can help in keeping the environment more suitable, more useful and most hospitable for the life living there.

    Objectives: There is a growing evidence that Transvaginal Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy reduced the severity of Sacro-iliac joint dysfunction (1). However, attention is to be paid to pelvic floor muscle training with functional integration. This study responds to a greater contribution in the area of clinical practice (2). The Sacroiliac joint dysfunction (SJID) has been found to be the primary culprit for Lower Back Pain (LBP), but it is still over worked and treated as LBP. Often, we find that many patients with SI joint dysfunction (particularly sacroiliac joint pain hyper mobility) will manifest with pelvic floor with hypertonic muscular dysfunction, as this is a compensatory strategy used to stabilize the SI joint. Hence, pelvic floor physical Therapy is an important treatment approach which can be used for sacroiliac joint dysfunction. We hypothesized that pelvic floor transvaginal physical therapy can improve sacroiliac joint dysfunction. Methods: 15 patients with sacroiliac joint dysfunction participated in this pilot study. The outcome measures used were the Oswestry Disability Index (ODI), Visual analog scale (VAS) , pain assessment short form 36 (SF-36) and Manual Pelvic floor assessment through Modified Oxford Grading System. The study findings revealed a statistical improvement in post intervention values for sacroiliac joint dysfunction and a statistically significant decrease in hypertonicity of pelvic floor muscle’s and also a significant decrease of pain in the sacro-iliac joint. Conclusion: Transvaginal Pelvic Floor physical Therapy is an important treatment approach tool for Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction.

    Integrated approach of yoga therapy (IAYT) is defined as the use of yoga practices for the prevention and treatment of medical conditions. Beyond the physical elements of yoga, this incorporates appropriate breathing techniques, mindfulness, and meditation in order to achieve the maximum benefits. The practice of yoga (IAYT) is not easy or as quick as taking medication, but mounting evidence suggest it is worth the effort and investment. This is based on Panchakosha concept, helps one to reconnect with oneself. This can ultimately help to relieve one from the pressures and stressors which we receive almost daily. Neuroendocrine involvement is brought here and interactions between regulatory bodies and vascular functions have been elaborated. Only physical exercise or yoga did not show much beneficial. It is also should be noted that the field of yoga research encompasses the inherent dilemma of the wide variety of yogic practices used as interventional therapies. It has also been shown to have Psychological benefits, as the practice can help to increase mental energy, positive feeling and decrease negative feeling of aggressiveness, depression and anxiety. Keeping these in minds it is very much essential to understand the regulatory involvement and their basic interactions with vascular physiology in IAYT.

    Cysticercosis is a parasitic infection which is caused by larval form of pork tapeworm, Taenia Solium. This condition is endemic in developing countries of Asia and Africa. The common sites are central nervous system (CNS), eye, striated muscle, subcutaneous tissues, liver and lungs. But very few cases of eyelid cysticercosis have been reported in the literature. The same patient had a similar swelling on left ear lobe. Hereby, we report a case of cysticercosis of eyelid and cheek in a 19-year-old female patient who presented with two swellings, one on the right upper eyelid on medial side and other on left upper cheek. Both these swellings were clinically diagnosed as epidermal cyst because of its exclusive site of presentation. Histopathology of excised eyelid lesion showed evidence of cysticercosis. Fine needle aspiration was done for the cheek swelling which confirmed the diagnosis of cysticercosis in that region too.

    Numerous research works has been carried out for the removal of phosphorous from the steel since several decade because of its detrimental effect on mechanical properties of steel such as cold shortness temper embrittlement poor ductility and strength. In the present work, dephosphorization experiments have been carried out. Total fifteen heats were processed, experimenting on (0.017%C) low carbon steel. During each individual heat, the samples of slag and liquid metal have been collected. It is found that Rate of dephosphorization is mainly controlled by mass transfer in the slag. Addition of MgO may increase the melting point and viscosity of the slag which decreases the kinetic conditions of dephosphorization. It decreases the activity of CaO and FeO in slag and increase in Al2O3 decreases the viscosity of the melt which have a negative impact on phosphorous removal. The dephosphorization increases with increase in slag basicity and becomes maximum approximately 3, further increase in basicity beyond that has found to have negative impact on phosphorous removal.

    Background: Nowadays, malware samples are automatically created by a custom crimeware toolkit that essentially creates a batch of functionally of the same malware in a different look using different obfuscation techniques and renders static signature-based detection. While there has been substantial research in automated malware classification, it remains challenging in the research community and the main role of crime ware toolkits in the explosion of crime ware has been ignored. Objective(s): Although such approaches have shown satisfactory performance on a large set of datasets, practical defense systems require precise detection during malware outbreaks where only a handful of samples created using a certain toolkit are available. The problem of toolkit signature generation and detection aims at detecting whether a binary file is created by a given toolkit or not. It has many security applications including signature generation and detection for crime ware toolkits, packers, and metamorphism engines. Methods: This paper presents a novel deep learning-based model for malware toolkit signature generation and detection. The method uses a deep belief network (DBN), implemented with a deep stack of denoising auto encoders trained by the fixed-target strategy for generating an effective toolkit signature that helps detect new malware samples generated using the same toolkit once a handful of malware samples are available. Results: The results show how powerful the toolkit signatures generated by the DBN allow for the accurate detection of new malware samples. Using a dataset containing a few training samples created by the same toolkit (Zeus), our method achieves up to 97% detection accuracy using 10 training samples and 1800 test samples, 0.002 sec average detection time (including sample preprocessing time), and 3.08 sec average model build time. Additionally, we introduce a novel concept of toolkit signature.

    The status of Ficus krishnae remains ambiguous since more than 90% of seedlings become F.benghalensis on germination. This prompted the present genetic study to provide a better insight into the species status. The genetic similarity matrix generated by ISSR data indicates that F. benghalensis is genetically more diverse than F. krishnae. Genetic data analysis suggests separate species status to F. krishnae which is in the process of evolution.

    Malnutrition, particularly undernutrition and micronutrient deficiencies, persists and is a public health problem in Niger. The rates of these different forms exceed WHO standards. The objective of this study is to establish a reference situation in the regions of Niger most affected by malnutrition in order to develop a code dictionary of food recipes and foods, the starting point for the food consumption study. Thus, through focus groups, the different recipes and ingredients commonly consumed in 5 regions of Niger (Tillabéry, Dosso, Tahoua, Maradi, Zinder) were collected. A wide variety of recipes were encountered. Pasta is the most common cereal-based dish consumed in the households we visited. It is often the family's evening meal, which can be reheated the next day for breakfast. The most commonly consumed pasta is made from millet, rice, or sorghum. Then come the drinks (boule) made from these cereals. However, some local foodstuffs are also found, but of low consumption, which could contribute to rebalancing the nutritional status of the populations. In this study, the recipients of the various food recipes identified are almost exclusively households (98.86%), with only one case cited for children under two years of age (cooked cowpeas) and one case for nursing mothers (milk). Overall, with the exception of the month of April (77.89%), at least 80% of the food recipes identified were consumed each month. However, additional studies must be conducted to better map them from a nutritional point of view.

    Face aux inégalités d’accès à l’emploi basées sur le genre dans l’armée, une institution profondément masculine, des réformes ont été entreprises en vue de la féminisation de cesecteur. Toutefois, l’effectif des femmes dans les forces de défense et de sécurité reste toujours infime par rapport à celui des hommes en dépit de profondes réformes en faveur de la promotion de la femme. L’objectif de cette étude est d’analyserles logiques socioéducatives de la faible intégration des femmes aux métiers de l’armée. Cette étude a combiné les méthodes qualitative et quantitative à travers des entretiens individuels et de groupe ainsi qu’un questionnaire. La présente recherche montre que la sous-représentation des femmes dans l’armée, en Côte d’Ivoire, s’explique par le faible intérêt de ces dernières pour ces corps de métiers en raison de la perception négative et des stéréotypes liés à l’éducation familiale et aux normes sociales traditionnelles de la femme.

    Wrinkles are visible folds or creases in the skin. One of the factors that can cause wrinkling is the decline of skin hydration that can be known from measuring the TEWL score. Collagen is the scaffold for skin hydration, strength, and stability. It can lower the TEWL score and therefore reduce the appearance of wrinkles. However, until now there have not been many clinical studies on the use of collagen drink to improve TEWL score and wrinkle. We reported 3 patients with normal, borderline, and critical TEWL score with thin size wrinkle who were given an oral collagen drink. We measured improvement in TEWL scores with the Tewameter TM 300 and improvement in wrinkles with the A1 Smart Skin Analyzer. At the beginning of this study, the mean TEWL score for all patients was 26 while wrinkle was 3.89.The patients were given 0.5 gram collagen drink for 14 days. There is an improvement in the TEWL score to 17 and wrinkle to 3.13. All TEWL and wrinkle results in these three patients were classified as normal and thin at the end of therapy.

    Concept of Srotasa-sharira forms an important part of Sharira-rachana. Srotamsi are not just the passages for flow of various substances but they are specific in their functions. They serve as medium through which both nutrients and biological waste products are transported. The cause of morbidity and their manifestation pertaining to diseases has been explained with reference to each of the Srotas. Both Acharya Charaka and Sushruta have given top priority to Pranavaha Srotas. Acharya Charaka has opined that Pranavaha Srotas are the channels through which Pranavayu moves. Though Brihatrayeekaras have mentioned wide range of herbs for treatment of Pranavaha Sroto Vikara, drugs like Shati, Pushkaramoola, Haritaki, Trikatu, Brihati, Kantakari, Tamalaki, Tulasi, Pippali, Amalaki, Hingu and Ela are very frequently mentioned for the treatment of different Pranavaha Sroto vikara. Rasaushadhis by virtue of their broad spectrum therapeutic activity exert instant results and thus plays a vital role in prevention of complications and early recovery from the illness and also improved quality of life.

    Brinjal or eggplant (Solanum melongena L.) is an important Solanaceous crop of sub tropics and tropics. The name brinjal is popular in Indian subcontinents and is derived from Arabic and Sanskrit whereas the name eggplant has been derived from the shape of the fruit of some varieties, which are white and resemble in shape to chicken eggs. There are several names by which the crop is known in India, but brinjal is the most familiar. Brinjal is also called 'eggplant' or 'aubergine'. The name eggplant is believed to derive from Gerard's description of early forms with small, white fruit resembling eggs. In early years, eggplant was also termed 'Male insana' and the 'Italian Melazana', both of which translate to "made apple". The brinjal is of much importance in the warm areas of Far East, being grown extensively in India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, China and the Philippines. Names in Indian languages are Baingan (Hindi), Begun (Bengali), Ringna (Gujarathi), Badane (Kannada), Waangum (Kashmiri), Vange (Marathi), Bengena (Assamese), Baigan (Oriya), Vashuthana (Malayalam), Kathiri (Tamil), Vankaya (Telugu) and Peethabhala (Sanskrit). It was originally domesticated from the wild nightshade species thorn or bitter apple, S. incanum, probably with two independent domestications: one in South Asia, and one in East Asia. It was suggested that the brinjal originatd in Africa. But there is no evidence that S. melongena is native there though there are spiny African brinjal plants. Eggplant is widely used in its native India, for example in sambar (a tamarind lentil stew), dalma (a dal preparation with vegetables, native to Odisha), chutney, curry, and achaar (a pickled dish). Owing to its versatile nature and wide use in both everyday and festive Indian food, it is often described as the "king of vegetables". Roasted, skinned, mashed, mixed with onions, tomatoes, and spices, and then slow cooked gives the South Asian dish baingan bharta or gojju, similar to salată de vinete in Romania. Another version of the dish, begun-pora (eggplant charred or burnt), is very popular in Bangladesh and the east Indian states of Odisha and West Bengal where the pulp of the vegetable is mixed with raw chopped shallot, green chilies, salt, fresh coriander, and mustard oil. Sometimes fried tomatoes and deep-fried potatoes are also added, creating a dish called begun bhorta. In a dish from Maharashtra called bharli vangi, small brinjals are stuffed with ground coconut, peanuts, onions, tamarind, jaggery and masala spices, and then cooked in oil. Maharashtra and the adjacent state of Karnataka also have an eggplant-based vegetarian pilaf called 'vangi bhat'. Brinjal fruits are commonly considered as vegetables. They are cooked in various ways such as baking, barbecuing, frying or pickling. They can also be pureed, flavoured, and used as a dip or chutney as in Mediterranean and Indian cuisines. In Indian cuisine, they are used in curries and even made into soufflés. The cut fruits are typically soaked in cold salted water before cooking to avoid discoloration and to remove its mild bitterness. Brinjal is widely consumed as vegetable for its various health benefits. It is highly fibrous, contains antioxidants, potassium, Vitamin B-6 and phyto-nutrients like flavonoids which help in preventing cancer and heart disease. It also helps in weight loss with its low calories. It is good booster for brain and also helps in maintaining good health by lowering cholesterol in our body. The major brinjal producing states in India are Orissa, Bihar, West Bengal, Andhra Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh and Maharashtra. In the states of Tamil Nadu, Uttar Pradesh, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and West Bengal, it is harvested all year round. Out of all states, in 2013-14, West Bengal stands to be the highest brinjal producing state with 23% of total production. In this review article origin, distribution, taxonomy, botanical description, genetic diversity and breeding, uses, nutritional value, health benefits of brinjal are discussed.

    Luffa is a genus of tropical and subtropical vines in the Cucurbitaceae family. It grows as a flowering annual vine. In everyday non-technical usage, the luffa, also spelled loofah, usually means the fruit of the two species L. aegyptiaca and L. acutangula. Genus name was derived from the product “Loofah” used as bathing sponges, scrubber pads, doormats, pillows, mattresses, cleaning utensils. The plant name "Luffa" was introduced to Western botany nomenclature by the botanist Johann Vesling, who visited Egypt in the late 1620s and described the plant under cultivation with artificial irrigation in Egypt. In 1706 the botanist Joseph Pitton de Tournefort introduced the formal botany genus name "Luffa". In establishing the Luffa genus, Tournefort identified just one member species and called it "Luffa arabum". His 1706 article includes detailed drawings of this species (which is now called Luffa aegyptiaca). Origin of ridge gourd is not known. Smooth gourd may be a native of South Asia or Africa or Australia. The Luffa has essentially Old World origin in subtropical Asian region including particularly India. The origin of the Luffa (loofah) sponge is unknown as to where exactly it came from, but most scientists believe it originated in Asia or Africa and actual cultivation first started in India. Indo-Burma is reported to be the centre of diversity for sponge gourd. The young fruit is eaten as a vegetable and is commonly grown for that purpose in tropical Asia. Unlike the young fruit, the fully ripened fruit is strongly fibrous and inedible, and is used to make scrubbing bath sponges. The young shoots, flowers and leaves can be cooked, and the mature seeds can be roasted for consumption. An edible oil can be extracted from the seeds. The resulting oil meal can be fed to rabbits and catfish, or used as a fertilizer. Smooth luffa (Luffa aegyptiaca) produces pretty yellow flowers which are both showy and conspicuous, about 5-7.6 cm across with five petals. The fruits are green, up to 61 cm long and 7.6 cm in diameter; they are cylindrical and smooth, and shaped like a club, slighter wider on one end. Small fruits look like okra or little cucumbers. On older fruits, the outer skin eventually dries and turns brown and papery. Ridged loofah (Luffa acutangula), or "vine okra", is a similar species which has light yellow/white flowers and produces gourds that are ridged with ten angles. Vine okra is harder to peel for the sponge. The fruit section of L. aegyptiaca may be allowed to mature and used as a bath or kitchen sponge after being processed to remove everything except the network of xylem fibers. If the loofah is allowed to fully ripen and then dried on the vine, the flesh disappears leaving only the fibrous skeleton and seeds, which can be easily shaken out. In this review article origin, distribution, taxonomy, botanical description, genetic diversity, and breeding of Luffa spp. are discussed.

    Introduction: Induction of labour implies the artificial initiation of uterine contraction in a quiescent uterus by any method like medical, surgical or combined prior to their spontaneous onset.one of the most common indication for labour induction is prolonged pregnancy, which is associated with many of the fetal complications. present study compares effectiveness and safety of induction of labour with mifepristone and with misoprostol. Aim and objective: To compare the safety and efficacy of oral mifepristone with that of oral misoprostol in induction of labour at term. Materials and methods: This was a comperative study involving 100 women with term gestation, women were divided alternatively into two groups with 50 in each group(group 1 mifepristone 200mg given ,group 2 misoprostol 25mcg was given) .The primary outcome measures were successful vaginal delivery ,induction to delivery interval and secondary outcome measures were failed induction ,mode of delivery, birth weight, meconium stained liquor ,fetal distress ,NICU admission ,primary post partum haemorrhage Results: The mean age of women in group 1 and group 2 was 23.16 and 22.72 years respectively .The mean BMI in both the group was similar (22.63kg/m2 and 22.27 kg/m2) The mean induction to delivery was 31.86 hours in group 1 and in group 2 16.11 hours .this is statistically significant in both groups with favourable and unfavourable cervix(p=.00001) Conclusion: we concluded that oral mifepristone seems as effective as oral misoprostol for induction of labour at term, misoprostol was responsible for meconium stained liquor in most of the cases, which was less with mifepristone, so better neonatal outcomes when compared to misoprostol.

    Renewable energy has obtained considerable interest as the fossil fuel reserve is getting shorter with a remarkable effect on the environment and global warming. Those resources are inexhaustible and cheaper than the fossil fuels. In Gezera of Sudan, cotton stalk is very huge in quantity and quality as cotton is one of the national crops planted and its fiber is used in textile industry and for export. However, there are worms that attack the roots of cotton and affect the quality and quantity of the product, therefore the cotton stalk must be derooted and burnt. The burnt is made in open areas of the field with evolution of CO2 which affects the nearby residential areas with simultaneous effect on the environment. The aim of this paper is to collect the cotton stalk in bundles, and introduce it into a well-designed and controlled incinerator provided with a boiler for steam production and electricity generation, which can be supplied to the residential area and villages. It must be recognized that one kilogram of cotton stalk gives 17.1MJ, in addition of utilizing the ash residue as a fertilizer. The absorber dimensions are: out inside diameter 0.52m, thickness 7.5mm, outside diameter 0.5275m, overall height of 2.6m.

    Fibrous dysplasia is a developmental disorder of bone that can present in a monostotic or polyostotic form. Primarily affecting adolescents and young adults, it accounts for 7% of benign bone tumors. Many of the asymptomatic lesions are found incidentally; the remainder present with symptoms of swelling, deformity, or pain. Fibrous dysplasia has been associated with multiple endocrine and nonendocrinedisorders and with McCune-Albright and Mazabraud’s syndromes. The etiology remains unclear, but molecular biology suggests a mutation in the Gsα subunit andactivation of c-fos and other proto-oncogenes. Fibrous dysplasia has characteristicradiographic appearance. Most cases do not require intervention, but those that dousually are managed surgically with curettage, bone grafting, and, in some cases, internal fixation. When some intervention is necessary but surgery is not practical, treatment is with bisphosphonates. The prognosis generally is good, although pooroutcomes are more frequent in younger patients and in those with polyostotic formsof the disease. The risk of malignant transformation is low. We report a case of unilateral monostotic fibrous dysplasia in a 19 year old female in a proximal femur with pathological neck fracture with Shepherd' crook deformity. The patient underwent a curettage of lesions combined with dynamic hip screw fixation and bone grafting. The patient was followed up in the outpatient department(opd),x rays was taken, signs of radiological healing was noted Partial weight-bearing was allowed at three months postoperatively and full weight-bearing at six months with no restriction in the activity. After six months, the patient was able to perform all activities without any difficulty. No evidence of recurrence was noted in the follow-up x-rays. After five years of follow up, implant exit done along with fibular strut graft done

    Kingdom of Saudi Arabia initiative, that was implemented on the 15th of November 2020, aimed to improve the surveillance of HCV infection among all population. The objective was to eliminate HCV infection, and by that fulfilling the 2030 vision of Saudi Arabia. Official national circulars, that were signed by higher authorities, concentrated on early detection through passive surveillance of cases reported from laboratories, or through active surveillance in the community or in high-risk groups. The data shows that over the years, the prevalence rates of hepatitis C in Saudi Arabia have decreased. However, there is a need to underscore the low quality of data available. Most of the data is fragmented into various population cohorts. Utilization of current data available in the national initiative is mandatory to assess the current situation and to recalculate the prevalence which would be of value for planning, budget allocation, and to assess the need for further active surveillance.

    Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is considered a cause of cancer-related death across the globe. Numerous improvements have been achieved in treating the early and advanced HCC stages. HCC biomarkers play a significant role in the prognosis of HCC. However, there has not been predictable clinically important data for surveillance and early diagnosis of HCC. Diagnosis of alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) negative hepatic cancer (ANHC) is challenging in clinical practice. For the clinical detection of ANHC, a single biomarker alone is usually insufficient in sensitivity and specificity. Combining different types of biomarkers could enhance the diagnostic performance for ANHC detection.

    Objective: The goal of this article was to describe the importance of saving the natural remaining teeth and the fabrication of telescopic dentures as an alternative to the conventional removable dentures, to minimize the complete denture problems. Background: Telescopic dentures consist of an inner or primary telescopic coping which is permanently cemented to an abutment and an outer or secondary telescopic coping which is attached to the prosthesis. These copings protect the abutment from dental caries and thermal irritations and also provide retention and stabilization of the secondary coping. The secondary coping engages the primary copings to form a telescopic unit and it provides retention and stability to the prosthesis. Materials and Methods: An impression was made with a polyvinyl siloxane elastomer after preparation of the abutments and primary copings were fabricated on the cast . After evaluating the fit of the primary copings on the abutments, they were cemented with glass ionomer cement. An impression of the cemented primary copings was made for the fabrication of secondary copings with retention beads, which were attached to the prosthesis. Conclusion: Telescopic overdentures have better retention and stability as compared to complete dentures, they improve the chewing efficiency and the comfort of the patient and they also decrease the alveolar bone resorption.

    Background: Good health is one of the requirements and expectation of every nation that care for the welfare of her citizens and hence an indicator of productive life, socially and economically balanced society. Access to healthcare facilities could be determined in terms of, availability of medical industry in an area, location of healthcare facilities, quality of services offered by health workers and affordability of medical bills. Socio-economic status (SES) can be looked upon as class standing of an individual or group. This study examined the relationship that exists between SES and access to healthcare. Methods: The study was done at five (5) Model Primary Health Centers (MPHC), drawn by ballot from the pool of 14 MPHC, using a cross sectional quasi experimental design. The sample size of 212 respondents was proportionally and statistically distributed among the five selected MPHC. The data were generated with an interviewer administered semi-structured questionnaire. Analysis was done with SPSS (17.0) package. Results: Female gender (60%) are the majority, with most of the respondent within aged 31-40 years. Majority of the respondent were educated. The socio-economic characteristics that were significantly associated with access to healthcare were education (rho = 0.493; p-value = 0.000), income level (rho = 0.249; p-value = 0.000); gender (rho = 0.940; p-value = 0.000). Conclusions: The study revealed that SES is significantly related to access to healthcare; and healthcare facilities should be located nearer to the people with minimal class and political considerations that may disadvantage the poor masses.

    Background: One of the limiting factors of cotton production in West Africa, particularly in Togo, is drought. Identifying the resistant varieties and understanding the mechanisms involved in their resistance is a fundamental asset for the breeder. Objectives: Theaims of this research were to: (i) compare the resistant and susceptible varieties under water deficit conditions on the agro morphological and biochemical levels and (ii) identify the traits responsible for water deficit resistance. Methods: Twelve varieties of cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) were studied under two water regimes (normal and deficit during flowering), in 30 L plastic pots, under controlled sowing conditions, following a split-plot design with three replications. The observations were made on agromorphological and biochemical characteristics. Results: The results showed that water deficit decreased seed cotton production (-23%), aerial biomass (-29%), root biomass (-41%), vegetative branches bolls (-49,56), root volume (-26,34%), and chlorophyll content (-79% to 79%). On the other hand, the water deficit increased the average weight of the bolls (+23%). The resistant varieties to the water deficit were characterized by an increase in the primary root length (variety X148), the chlorophyll concentration (variety STONE 907), the lateral root number, and proline content (variety BRS 286), and a decrease in the MDA content (STONE 907). The susceptible varieties were characterized by high MDA content (variety NTALL88) and a low lateral root number (variety Deltatpine SL Frego). Conclusion: STONE 907, BRS286, and X148 can be used as progenitors in crossing programs to improve the water deficit resistance of cotton varieties grown in Togo and West African countries.

    Introduction: Hospital acquired infections have caused high morbidity and mortality, of which central line associated blood stream infections (CLABSI) account for high costs and prolonged hospital stay. As per CDC guidelines CLABSI is defined as “a laboratory confirmed blood stream infection in a patient who had a central line within the 48 hours before the development of the blood stream infection and that is not related to an infection at another site”. Objectives: To determine the incidence of CLABSI in the PICU and the risk factors associated with it. Material and methods: Among 72 children with central venous catheters in the PICU, with new onset sepsis, two sets of blood samples, one percutaneously and other from catheter hub were collected. The samples were cultured by Bactec method. Catheter tips were sent for culture at the time of removal. Data collection was done and analyzed using SPSS version 21. Results: 4 children (5.6%) had CLABSI. The incidence density of CLABSI was 6.6 per 1000 central line days. Of the 4 CLABSIs, 2 cases grew Candida and 1 each grew Staphylococcus aureus and E coli. The mean duration of hospital stay in CLABSI and no CLABSI cases was 15.25+7.2 and 11.78+3.48 days respectively. The length of hospital stay was found to be statistically significant with the incidence of CLABSI. Conclusion: The incidence density of CLABSI was 6.6 per 1000 central line days. The duration of hospital stay was found to have statistically significant association with CLABSI incidence.

    Economic sanctions have become the main tool for policymakers to tackle geopolitical challenges such as terrorism and conflict. Sanctions can be in the form of travel bans, asset freezes, arms embargoes, and trade restrictions. Critics often perceive sanctions as being poorly conducted and rarely successful, this could be portrayed as one of the major downfalls on International Law. On the other hand, supporters would argue that recent conflicts have been contained with effective economic sanctions and that it remains an essential foreign policy tool. This paper examines what constitutes sanctions and focuses on practical instances where they have been used in the promotion of Human Rights. It will also examine the alternatives available to economic sanctions since the imposition of such measures could have detrimental effects on human beings and their basic needs.

    DNA is present in most of the cells in our body, which is unique in each and everyindividual, and we leave a trail of it everywhere we go. This has become an advantagefor forensic investigators who use DNA to draw conclusion in identification of victimand accused in crime scenes. Chorionic villi are villi that sprout from the chorion to provide maximal contact area with maternal blood.They are an essential element in pregnancy from a histomorphology perspective, and are, by definition, a product of conception. Branches of the umbilical arteries carry embryonic blood to the villi. After circulating through the capillaries of the villi, blood returns to the embryo through the umbilical vein. Thus, villi are part of the border between maternal and foetal blood during pregnancy.Child sexual abuse is one of the major problems of India. In regard to this problem, a special law has been enacted named as Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act (POCSO) with a view to protect the rights of children. Undoubtedly, passing of this Act has been a major step in securing children’s right. In the present case a girl child of aged about 11 years was sexually abused by her school teacher. Upon arising of symptoms her mother doubted and asked the child about facts. Mother took her to the doctor where she tested positive for 9 weeks pregnancy, subsequently a FIR was lodged in a Mahila P.S of District. As it was not feasible to deliver in such a minor age, a legal abortion was carried out upon intervention of hon’ble trial court. The product of conceptus (Chorionic villi) along with reference blood samples of accused and victim were received in Forensic Science Laboratory, Bihar, Patna for establishing paternity. The DNA examiners team at FSL, Patna experienced first time such kind of sample and took it as a challenge. The sample of chorionic villi were subjected to DNA extraction using Automate DNA Extraction Prepfiler Express method and DNA from reference Blood Samples were extracted separately. The DNA were further subjected to Quantitation using 7500 RT PCR instrument and Quantifiler Duo amplification kit followed with 16 STR multiplexing using 9700 PCR machine and Identifiler plus amplification kit. The amplified DNA were subjected to 3130, 4-capillary Genetic Analyzer for fragment analysis.The conclusion revealed that the accused found to be biological father of the product of conceptus(chorionic villi) and upon submission of detailed report, the hon’ble trial court sentenced accused for Death Penalty.

    Studying the evolution of swell characteristics as they propagate in coastal zone is essential to understanding the physics of the phenomenon. Control of wave parameters and knowledge of sea states are fundamental elements, both for the development of maritime activities and the prevention and fight against coastal disasters. Our study is based on measurements of data acquired from 2011 to 2014 as part of the extension of the Autonomous Port of Cotonou by the Millennium Challenge Account (MCA-Benin). This work, carried out on the coast of Benin, aims to fill the lack of information on the direction of the swells and to provide statistics representative of their heights in the deep waters of the zone close to the coast, where the swell is not not yet submitted to the action of the funds. In these deep waters (offshore) of the coastal zone, based on measurements of wave data taken at five-minute intervals, on a regular basis over a period of four consecutive years (June 2011 to April 2014), the statistical distribution of the characteristic parameters of the swell (height, direction of propagation, wavelength and period) is worked out. Thus, the significant height H_s, the peak period or the stable mean period of the swell T_p≈〖T_m〗_s are evaluated. The frequent incident direction D_fis evaluated to define the spectral directional distribution of the sea states in the deep waters of the Beninse coastal zone are known through the Beaufort scale used in maritime environments.

    Indeed, the use of internet is a most powerful medium for communication, mostly highest internet data consumed by the Indians in all over the world. It can be use for constructive influence as well as destructive influence, certainly an increase in technological advancements and industrialization, the world of cyberspace saw an exponential growth in possibilities and features of the internet. The distance was gravely reduced and any remote corner of the world became readily available on our fingertips. However, developing technologies also became a medium of cyberspace violence, or in general words, cyber crime. Cyber crimes pose great difficulty in tracing the source, owing to its ambiguity, hence a popular choice of criminals for the same reason. Jurisdiction lines get hugely blurred in cyberspace violence and the lack of knowledge and familiarity leads to an increase in the number of victims. The majority of cyber crimes are directed towards women and children and other such vulnerable groups of people. Pornography, blackmailing, child grooming, financial exploitation are some common examples. Such crimes are controlled by the IT act of 2000 (Amended 2008). This paper will provide current state of cyber crimes against women and children of Madhya Pradesh with special reference to Sagar district of Madhya Pradesh. The conclusions drawn in this paper are based on a research study on this subject. On the whole, it needs to be investigated as to the mechanics of committing cyber crimes and suggest some concrete measurements to prevent and controlled cyber crime against the women and children in cyber space.

    This study discusses the influence of internal auditor competence, and dysfunctional behavior of internal auditors on the quality of internal auditors and their implications for internal auditor performance (study on the State General Inspectorate/ Inspecção Geral do Estado Dili Timor Leste, this study shows that;Auditor competence affects the quality of internal audit, meaning that the more competence of an auditor can improve the quality of the audit carried out by the auditor. Meanwhile, the Auditor's Dysfunctional Behavior does not affect Internal Audit Quality. The results of this study also show a negative and insignificant influence of dysfunctional behavior on audit quality. This means that the auditor at the agency carries out its function as an independent auditor, producing quality audit reports. Auditor competence affects the performance of internal auditors. Auditor competence has a positive and significant effect on auditor performance. This means that if an internal auditor is given full competency with high and independent knowledge, he will be able to improve the auditor's performance. Effect of Dysfunctional Behavior on Auditor Performance. The results of the study show that Dysfunctional Behavior has no positive and insignificant effect on Auditor Performance. This means that if the auditor's behavior shown by an auditor is based on his function and complies with applicable auditing standards and avoids deviant behavior or manipulating audit activities, it will be able to improve the auditor's work performance. Effect of Audit Quality on Auditor Performance. Audit Quality has a positive and significant effect on Auditor Performance. This means that as the increasing quality of the audit carried out by an auditor, the auditor's performance will increase. And also the better the quality achieved by an internal auditor, the better the audit performance. The first path analysis test shows that the intervening variables in this study can strengthen the relationship between Internal Auditor Competence and Internal Auditor Performance. The second path analysis test shows that the intervening variables in this study can strengthen the relationship between Auditor Dysfunctional Behavior and Internal Auditor Performance

    In India, 69 %-70% population is living in rural areas where cow (Bos indicus) is principal cattle. Total Milk producing Cows in India are about 80 million and non-milk producing cows are on the order of 30 million each generates 9–15 kg dung/day. On an average in India from the non-milk producing cows 8x107 kg per day cow dung is produced. One of the serious social problems is the waste generated from stray cows and gaushalas which is not only source of solid pollutants but also run off liquid along with gaseous emission, some of which are either hazardous, lethal or mutagenic or even poisonous, or pathogenic in nature. The solutions for this major problem due to either pollution or disposal of solid wastes can be overcome by the synthesis of some of the worth-mentioning products which include bio-plastics, or bio-textiles,α-cellulose, pulp, paper and card boards for sustainable packaging,, bio-gas, bio-oils and fermentation products like ethanol, bio-composting and bio-fertilizers (N-P-K), nano-cellulose and MFC, microbial products (bacteria and enzymes), activated carbon, and fillers, bricks, silica, ceramics, and silicon-based semiconductors. In this present paper a review is made on these invaluable products with special emphasis on bio polymers and polymers from the ligno-cellulosic part of the cow dung, which in turn consists of cellulose, hemicellulose, lignin, and sometimes starch also. It is important to mention that based on recent survey the total amount of lignocellulosic part (sum of cellulose, hemicellulose and lignin) in cow dung in India is reported on the order of 52%.

    The paper attempts to analyze and compare Bhutan’s GNH development philosophy with the UN’s SDG and MDG development strategies. The most common parameters of GNH have been compared through a thorough examination of the conceptual foundation and interrelations of GNH, SGDs, and MDGs to development. Further, the achievements and challenges of implementing GNH, SDGs, and MDGs are reviewed and studied. Data on such variables are collected by desk reviewing of past studies, reports, books, and journal articles on GNH, SDGs, and MDGs by different researchers, authors, and writers to establish the interconnections and distinctions. The paper concludes that GNH may be seen as a gimmick but it is a balanced, holistic and shared development philosophy, which has brought real gains in guiding policy directions to Bhutan’s overarching long-term strategies and five-year development plans. Likewise, MDGs are ambitious, yet it is a touchstone for universal development policy for UN member nations since 2000, and have succeeded in lifting society from extreme poverty, reducing hunger, enabling more girls to attend schools, and protecting our mother earth. Similarly, SDGs, UN’s 2030 strategy for sustainable development is a persuasive and inspiring policy for UN member nations, and executing SDGs is not just about providing a future of harmony and dignity, it is more profound and a moment for each nation to consider what connects it as a peaceful nation, and what drives and defines it as a people.

    NEP-2020 has prepared an educational vision for the country. It wants India to become a global knowledge superpower (Vishwa guru) from a vibrant knowledge society. Therefore, NEP-2020 has emphasized on making education more holistic and effective, linking vocational education with general education, and strengthening the fundamental pillars of education i.e., access, equity, quality, affordability, and accountability. Achieving the goals requires certain pathways, and the Curriculum Framework is one of those pathways that move the nation's education system forward.UGC has developed a Curriculum and Credit Framework for Undergraduate Programmes to make a good, creative, thoughtful, and skillful person in this knowledge-based society and to fulfill various recommendations of NEP 2020. This paper highlights the proposed Curriculum, it's Credit Framework for Undergraduate Programmes and its various silent features. Also, the challenges that may arise in its implementation at the ground level have been discussed in detail. Appropriate suggestions have been given on how to overcome the various challenges.

    The development of hyperkalemia is thought to be significantly associated with the use of ACE inhibitors andARBs. A retrospective observational cohort study conducted was conducted with200 in patients among the study subjects of the age group of 18 years and above. Majority of the cases were males (50.5%) than females (49.5%). Average serum potassium of non-exposed group was found to be 3.9±0.36 mEq/L and exposed group was found to be 4.1±0.5 mEq/L. Average baseline creatinine(mg/dL) of non-exposed group was 1±0.82 mg/dL and exposed group was 0.96 ±0.2 mg/dL. ACEIs were administrated to 1% of the patients (1/100) and ARBs to 99% (99/100). Incidences of hyperkalemia were the highest with the use of losartan (0.92%,2/13), olmesartan (0.85%, 2/14) followed by telmisartan (0.64%, 7/65 persons). The causality assessment of reported ADRs as per the Naranjo scale revealed that 67% were probable, 33% were definite, 0% were possible and unlikely. The Hartwig severity scale showed that all were of mild type and according to the modified Schumock and Thornton scale all were probably preventable there was a significant association between Hyperkalemia and administration of ARBS/ACE –inhibitors (χ2= 11.640, df= 2, p<0.01).

    Introduction: Ventilator-associated pneumonia is a lung infection that develops in a person who is on a ventilator. A ventilator is a machine that provides oxygen to a patient via a tube inserted in the patient's mouth or nose, or through a hole in the front of the neck. If microorganisms reach the patient's lungs through the tube, an illness may result. When a patient is critically ill, or during and after surgery, he or she may require a ventilator. Ventilators can save a patient's life, but they also raise the risk of pneumonia by making it easier for germs to enter the patient's lungs. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the knowledge and practise of ICU nurses. Method: A descriptive study was conducted in ICUs of CRH and New STNM hospital, Gangtok, Sikkim. The sample consisted of 66 staff nurses, who fulfilled inclusion criteria of the study. Non probability purposive sampling technique was used. The data collection tool used for the study was 20 structured knowledge questionnaires on VAP Bundle and 20 practice observational checklist. Result: Out of 66 ICU staff nurse 89.4% had a good knowledge, 7.6% had average knowledge and 3% of the staff nurses had poor knowledge on VAP bundle care. Majority 98.48% had good knowledge regarding VAP treatment, 39.39% had poor knowledge on VAP bundle care components. 69.7% of the staff nurses had good practice, 23.3% had average practice and 3% had poor practice. 100% of the staff nurses wore PPE for protection of the airway and 42.42% of staff nurses did not practice standard hand washing technique appropriately. The present study revealed that there was moderately positive correlation between knowledge and practice of VAP bundle care (r= 0.148). There was no association between nurse knowledge score with the demographic variables, also there was no association between practice score with demographic variables. Conclusion: The study found that the majority of the ICU nurses had good knowledge and practice on VAP prevention, there is still need for continuous training on evidenced based practices so as to prevent infection and complication.

    In recent years, China's medical and health industry is in a period of rapid development. With the continuous progress of technology and knowledge in the medical field, the requirements for medical education are becoming stricter.This descriptive study used an adopted questionnaire to survey 436 medical college students of Qilu College of Medicine in Zibo City, Shandong, China, about their mental toughness, academic self-efficacy and learning burnout of the status quo, and to explore the correlation between the three. It also utilized an interview of 10 instructorsfor supplementary data. Results revealed that burnout exists among the student-respondents, although it remains in an unalarming rate. Despite having minor observable issues in their practice, which limit their education under an optimum level, students were also seen as resilient and contented of themselves and their current education. Considering such findings, intervention strategies were proposed to further alleviate academic burnout and promote the finest learning among medical students.
