Values and norms that develop in people of Papua tend to discriminate women which can affect the woman health status and may lead to a high rates of maternal and child deaths of Biak tribe in Biak Numfor Regency, Papua Province. This study aims to develop concepts and propositions on women's reproductive health (pregnancy health, healthcare delivery and post-partum health) on Biak tribal culture in Biak Numfor. The research design is qualitative with the ethnometodology approach, symbolic interaction, and Kasper models analogy. Sources of data obtained from informants by interview, observation and documentation. Informants consisted of (1) the macro level, the tribal chief / head of customs, (2) the meso level, the community leaders / traditional leaders, and (3) a micro level, the head of the family / in-laws / parents, informants pregnant women, maternity women informans and informants during childbirth. The results found the concept of loose tribal cultures showed
Cattle suffering with plastic foreign body syndrome were treated surgically by rumenotomy. The pre-operative and 12 th day post operative blood and serum biochemical were recorded and compared with normal healthy cattle. Preoperatively decrease in haemoglobin, packed cell volume and total erythrocyte count was observed which was gradually increased and came to near normal state on 12 th post-operative day. There was leucocytosis, neutrophilia and corresponding lymphopenia observed in animals during pre-operative phase. The glucose, serum creatinine, serum albumin and calcium levels were found to be at lower level and total proteins, blood urea nitrogen and phosphorus at higher level in pre-operative period when compared to normal cattle. This may be due to low intake of food and water and also inflammatory condition in body due to presence of plastic foreign body.
- One of the most important and promising branches of Artificial Intelligence (AI) is Machine Learning (ML),which strive to make a machine intelligent by “learning” from the data. Information Retrieval is also a popular and predominant technique having as one of its application, the ubiquitous Search Engine. Search Engine optimization (SEO) has seen remarkable advancements during the recent years. The objective of this paper is to optimize the existing predictive search mechanism by incorporating pattern based Machine Learning techniques, the association with a Semantic Database, Natural Language Processing of search query to produce more relevant predictions to the user. The main intention is to provide diversified but apt, intelligent predictions for both the diversified set of users whose domain of search queries is not constrained, as well as for the dedicated researchers whose domain will be confined, coupled with an optimal balance between the Response times, Relev
A Smart City is the integration of technology into a strategic approach to sustainability. 21st Century has brought with it a new global trend of “sustainable urban development” and this concept adds new dimensions to urbanization which require a quick need to upgrade existing cities. The concept of a smart city is a relatively new one. Throughout the years, with the significant contribution from various technologies like computer science, information technology, remote sensing, advance multimedia world etc, GIS evolved from traditional geographer’s or cartographer’s tool for surveying and planning to a rapidly expanding primary technology for understanding our planet and related geospatial opportunities to foster a sustainable world. This paper describes smart city projects in India and thoroughly explores the existing and extended capability of GIS to include modeling and visualization in order that decision makers will be able to
Capsicum annum L. (Syn: Capsicum frutescens L., family: Solanaceae) is an herbaceous spice plant cultivated in tropical and subtropical conditions in different countries of the world. In India it is commonly known as “Lal Mirch”. The present study deals with response of UV-B radiation on different growth parameters of capsicum crop. Plants were grown in the field and exposed to supplemental UV-B radiation (280-320nm) for 1 hr and 3hr regularly supplied by the sunlamp, 300 watt from sowing till seedling stage. The total UV-B irradiation received by the plants from the lamp was 24.23 Jm -2 s -1 . The seed germination percentage was significantly decreased by 1 hr and 3 hr UV-B irradiation. The exposure of 1 hr UV-B irradiation showed promotory response on chlorophyll content and biomass of plumule and cotyledons while exposure of 3 hr of UV-B irradiation showed inhibitory effect on growth and chlorophyll content of seedlings. Current findings suggest ways to increase crop

Guava leaves have been used to treat cough and pulmonary diseases; they have also served as anti inflammatory and haemostatic agent in china. This work is therefore aimed at investigating the effects of guava leaf extract on the liver enzymes of adult wistar rats. Twenty apparently healthy wistar rats were used for this study. They were allocated into four groups (A, B, C & D) of five animals each. Group A served as the control and was orally administered with 0.5ml of distilled water; the experimental groups B, C, & D were orally administered 250mg/kg, 500mg/kg and 750mg/kg of guava leaf extract respectively for fourteen days. Twenty four hours after the last administration, the animals were dissected. Blood for serum preparation were collected through cardiac puncture. The activities of serum aspartate aminotransferase (AST), alanine aminotransferase (ALT) and alkaline phosphotase (ALP) were determined using randox kit method.
Development is explain not as an empirical term (Reese and Overton1970) and on occasion as through it is (Kaplan 1983) . Many times as what ever happens across the life span is what constitutes development. The concept of development centers on value based notion of improvement. In life span perspective the development is life long, interactive, multidimensional, culturally historically embedded process, shows plasticity, involves both gain and losses and has multidisciplinary field of study. (Sugarman 2001) The quality of life is interpreted differently as satisfaction (Summers 1976), happiness( Esterling 1978),psychological wellbeing( Andrews and Withey 1978) and degree of fulfillment of individuals important goals(Frish 1089) .In Positive Psychology the scientifically unwieldy notion of happiness is broken down several more quantifiable aspect: positive emotion (the pleasant life) engagement (engaged life) and purpose(meaningful life). (Seligman 2008)
Multi-attribute analysis is a useful tool in many economical, managerial, constructional, etc., problems. There is usually some uncertainty involved in all multi-attribute model inputs. The objective of this work is to demonstrate how simulation can be used to reflect fuzzy inputs, which allows more complete interpretation of model results. A case study is used to demonstrate the concept of general contractor choice of on the basis of multiple attributes of efficiency with fuzzy inputs applying COPRAS method. The work has concluded that the COPRAS method is appropriate to use.
Occupational stress is considered to be a main health problem for both individuals and organizations. This study has investigated the measurement of occupational stress among Management Information Systems (MIS) Users in different banks in the Kingdom of Bahrain. Furthermore, to identify their high job stressor factors and increase understanding of the impact of individuals differences in occupational stress. A descriptive, cross sectional survey was performed in five banks. Using quota sampling, MIS users’ from different divisions were asked to complete questionnaires- including demographic data, job stress and stressor factors. Six main stress factors were identified among MIS users banker staff: 1) intrinsic work characteristics (job design); 2) work culture and function; 3) managerial role; 4) career development; 5) relationships at work and 6) home-work interface. A total of 250 self-administrated questionnaires were distributed (hand delivery) to the banks divisions. The overall response rate was 80.8% (202/250) and the result suggested that over a third of MIS users in banks reported that their jobs were highly stressful. The bankers are exposed to high job stressors such as job design (overload, long working hours, deadlines and time pressure, repetitive task and lack of variety, and shortages of staff); and career development (under promotion and working at a level below their level of abilities and skills). However, the result of this research can be applied for improving sources of occupational stress and further, precluding severe stress and concern was expressed that such findings should be considered when delivering stress management programs.
