Days to flowering determines some agronomic traits of rice cultivars. One agronomic trait of rice may effect on another trait in different degrees in yield determination. The quantitative effect of one agronomic trait on another trait is not constant in different days to flowering (DF) groups of rice. In the present study one hundred sixty-four rice cultivars with different days to flowering were grouped as 70- 80-, 90- and 100- days to flowering. Agronomic traits of 80 plants in 4 plots of individual rice cultivars were evaluated in field conditions. Path analysis was done to understand the effect of one trait on another trait in different DF groups of rice cultivars separately.
Pulmonary tuberculosis is a global problem requiring 6- month MDT-DOTS continuous treatment. This time based treatment along with the combination of VCO nutritional supplement and/or Catfish-extracted albumin has shown a significant benefit on improving immune response, accelerating the conversion of BTA sputum, increasing nutritional states and improving chest X-ray imaging in people with active pulmonary TB. This study aimed to compare the changes in pulmonary TB patients treated MDT-DOTS combined with supplemented VCO and/or albumin with that in the MDT-DOTS placebo group
- Maize or Corn (Zea mays L.) is the most important cereal in the world after wheat and rice. It possesses high nutritive value and is important as a coarse grain. In Sri Lanka, this crop has cultivated, around 30,000ha and local consumption is around 200,000mt annually. Further, Maize is an easily grown crop and the cultivation has been popular among farmers as a cost effective crop with limited fertilizers. This Crop earns a reasonable foreign exchange as it is used as infant foods. Maize has a higher leafy mass and higher vegetative growth within shorter period of time than the other monoculture crops. Therefore, like for many other cereal crops, it is worthwhile in studying the environmental impacts due to this plant. Many researchers have shown that soil is the most affected environment due to monoculture plants. But no proper studies on soil quality changes due to this maize crop have been conducted in Sri Lanka
Updike has made it clear in author’s note that some details of the novel were based on the reports on ‘Rajneeshpuram’ in Oregon Magazine. He has interwoven facts with fiction. Swami Arhat or the guru of S. is similar to Rajneesh in many aspects. It becomes very clear after reading the novel that the author has made a careful study of some books on Yoga and oriental mythology.
The factor ‘similarity’ is important in multiple ways in interpersonal relations and can be relevant to globalization, the study of similarities among Judaism Christianity and Islam, if exist, can help to facilitate globalization. To study such similarities a questionnaire based on the similarities mentioned in Torah (Jews) Gospel (Christians) and Quran (Muslims) was prepared and disseminated to the similar groups belonging to all the three faiths and after commuting the scores on similar choices the scores compiled.
Classification is undoubtedly gaining major importance in the fields of machine learning, pattern recognition genetic engineering and bio medical sciences where it can be used for automated decision making. Mostly these areas contain datasets having large number of dimensions which require some preprocessing. Thus dimension reduction is a preprocessing step carried out prior to classification so that the classifiers can be designed in an easy to compute way. However while doing so, it must also retain the accuracy and must not lead to loss of information.
The fundamental concerns of imbalances in information and communication had been discussed for a longtime globally. The American media scholar Wilbur Schramm (1964) stated that the flow of news among nations is thin, that much attention is given to developed countries and little to less-developed ones, that important events are ignored and reality is distorted. After a long discussion and debate over media representations of the developing world in UNESCO in the late 1970s and early 1980s, a new term was coined as ‘the New World Information and Communication Order (NWICO or NWIO).’ The term was widely used by the MacBride Commission, which was charged with creation of a set of recommendations to make global media representation more equitable.
Ischemic heart disease is uncommon in young adults and may have some characteristics that are different from those in older patients. This study examined the risk factors for coronary artery disease and angiographic characterization in young adults. In current study 45 patients (90%) were men and only 5(10%) women. 10% of this population were obese and 78% were overweight. Risk factor analysis revealed smoking to be present in 78% of population. Family history was present in 52% of population.
In view of the ecological hazards of chemicals, in vitro experiments were conducted to determine the probable toxicity of the different water samples from the main water source of Barangay Ambassador, Tublay, Benguet employing the classical Allium cepa test prior to the establishment of communal water catch basins/tanks. In this study, experimental Allium cepa were grown in the different water samples from Lower and Upper Coroz, Baliti, and Salaksak.
