This article is a demonstrative study about the problem and size of addiction in western area especially Taif city in Saudi Arabia through applying of international questionnaires guidelines. These questionnaires were used to assess tobacco, alcohol, and narcotics addiction. They were performed on secondary school male students in Taif ,Saudi Arabia, in addition to Roshd and Kafa and population as well. The total sample size for the present study is equal to 2514
A pot experiment was conducted in glass house conditions for 120 days to study the effects of phosphorus solubilizing Gram-positive bacteria on plant growth, nutrient uptake and yield of cowpea (Vigna unguculata). Among all twelve bacterial treatments, the strain Bacillus spp (B3) has shown the greatest shoot length 67.70 cm, root length 60.5 cm and total dry weight 4.57 g plant -1 after 45 days of sowing. Similarly, in the same treatment the shoot length, root length and total dry weight were found 162.36 cm, 60.5 cm and 128.49 g plant -1 , respectively at harvesting and total yield was obtained 23.34 g plant -1 , which was significantly greater than all other treatments and uninoculated control treatments containing single super phosphate (SSP) and rock phosphate (RP) as phosphorus sources (7.93 g plant -1 and 3.81 g plant -1 respectively). The strains Bacillus thurengensis (T1 and T6) also have indicated a significant increase in above parameters
The major purpose of this study is to find out the extent to which previous knowledge of Book-keeping will predict students’ academic performance in Principles of Accounts 1 (BED 111) at the NCE 100 level in College of Education, Ikere Ekiti, Ekiti State, Nigeria. The study employed an ex-post facto research design with a sample of 371 selected from a population of 708. Three research hypotheses were tested at 0.05 level of significant using T-test, Standard deviation, Multiple regression and Analysis of variance. A finding from the study reveals that previous knowledge of Book-keeping significantly contributes to the prediction of academic performance of students in Principles of Accounts 1 (BED 111) among others. It was concluded that the influence of previous knowledge in teaching/learning process provides the background to framework upon which new learning will be placed. It is recommended that Joint Admission Matriculation Board (JAMB) should properly streamline
The Students’ Variables as Predictor of Secondary School Students’ Performance in Physics in Ekiti West Local Government Area of Ekiti State, Nigeria was investigated in this study. The study adopted a survey research design of the ex-post facto type. The sample comprised 120 senior secondary school II Physics students drawn from the six secondary schools in Ekiti West Local Government Area of Ekiti state. The instruments used for the study was questionnaire and past academic performance in Physics of the students involved in the study. Two research hypotheses were generated and analysed in the study using Pearson’s Moment Correlation and Multiple regression statistical analysis. Among others, the study revealed that: students‘ variables (study habit, attitude to and interest of students in Physics) are better predictors of students’ performance in Physics, while student gender has no influence on students academic performance (is a poor predictor).
The researchers sought to determine the effect of mine tailings on the growth ornamental plants. The study aimed to evaluate the effects of mine tailings o n the numbers of seed germinated, number of leaves, length of seedlings and length of primary roots; assess the effects of the various percentages of mine tailings; determine the interaction effect of the various percentages of mine tailings with fertile soil and organic fertilizers; and establish the best kind of percentages of mine tailings on the germination of seeds and growth of seedlings. Experiments were performed to determine the germination and growth of petunia seeds. Selections of plant candidate from varieties of seeds were considered. The ideal candidate is petunia seeds since it can sprout at a minimum period of seven days. Generally, there is significant effect of mine tailing concentration in primary root growth .
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
Background : A low birth weight baby is a clinical and diagnostic challenge. The neonatologists are faced with numerous neonatal intensive care unit protocols. This study was designed to review the policies of management of neonatal jaundice, sepsis, anemia, hypoglycemia, jaundice and hypoxic encephalopathy in a low birth weight newborn. Methods: Care of newborns in was done in intensive care unit after numerous research papers on low birth weight management were referred.
The study on patient satisfaction at priyadarshini dental college and hospital are conducted to measure the level of satisfaction as well quality of dental care provided .the total 100 randomly patients were surveyed .a questionnaire of 22 question were used to collect the information from the patients, most of patients were satisfied with the quality of care they received but some were dissatisfied due to the unable to understand explanation of treatment option provided by dental students and the long waiting time for the treatment, patient satisfaction is key determinant of quality of care.
this study was undertaken for the purpose to determine the concentration of caffeine in eight brands of soft drinks with the use of an Ultraviolet spectroscopy. This told us about the best brand among the different brands containing caffeine. The highest concentration of caffeine was found in Sting 500mL (560.29 µg/mL), so it is strongest CNS (central nervous system) stimulant among all samples and it is harmful for health. The lowest concentration of caffeine was found in 7up 500mL (29.71 µg/mL). So it is a weakest stimulant among all samples and can be sold in market
NANO… one billionth of one and one third of micro ,to be precise 10-9m. Nanotechnology is much discussed these days as a emerging frontier – a realm in which machines operate at scales of billionth a metre. It is actually a multitude of rapidly emerging technologies based upon the scaling down of existing technologies to the next level of precision and miniaturization. In the field of nano technologies researchers are enthusiastic about its potential applications in fields such as energy, medicine, electronics, computing and materials. Of late, one of the emerging aspects dealing Nanotechnology in mechanical field is the internal combustion engine on a nano scale, which we have chosen as our area of interest. Heat engines have evolved from external combustion engines to internal combustion engines and the hot off the block is the nano internal combustion engine.
