Abstract: In the age of globalization, being aware of tourist information search behavior is a fundamental factor for marketing management to decide and provide an effective marketing and service to their potential travelers. As information search is a first step in travel decision making therefore, marketers can provide proper information and influence travelers to make decision. Understanding Pre-purchase information search behavior has been an important concern for researchers on both theoretical and applied ground since early nineteen century till present. The provided information can be text based, image based (photograph) and voice based. The overall purpose of this paper is to better understanding of tourist data preference while searching for information. It explains how important and useful photograph can be in tourism information search and marketing in general. It is also shows the power of photograph to show the place characters. The data was collected from 204 tourists all over the world as well as related available secondary sources. The result of the study can be useful for tourism marketers to provide information related to tourists needs and desire.

Journal of Nepal Paediatric Society , 2011, DOI: 10.3126/jnps.v31i3.5361
Abstract: Background: Enteric fever is a common public health problem in Nepal. The emerging fluoroquinolone resistance to Salmonella typhi is a major concern in every hospital and is a public health problem these days. Continuous antibiotic susceptibility patterns surveillance and standard treatment policies need to be established to control MDR typhoid. Objective : To detect the increasing pattern of fluoroquinolone resistant Salmonella typhi and to correlate its clinical response to third generation cephalosporins. Materials and Method: This is a cross- sectional prospective study conducted in the pediatric ward of Birendra Hospital, Kathmandu, from September 2009 to August 2010. Forty seven children aged between 3-14 years with the diagnosis of suspected, probable and confirmed cases of Enteric fever were enrolled in the study. Data was collected and statistical analysis was done using SPSS program. Result: Culture positive enteric fever was found in 21 cases (44.68%) and positive Widal test in 18 (38.29%). Among the culture positive cases, antibiotic sensitivity was highest for Ofloxacin (95.23%), followed by third generation Cephalosporins (Ceftriaxone, Cefixime) (90.47%). A significant number of isolates were resistant to Nalidixic acid (71.42%). All cases were successfully treated with parenteral antibiotics followed by oral third generation cephalosporins without any complications and/or mortality. Conclusion: There is an increasing trend to fluoroquinolone resistant Salmonella typhi. Third generation cephalosporin can be the appropriate antibiotic for treatment.of clinically suspected cases of Enteric fever and to minimize the risk of increasing emergence of MDR enteric fever including Nalidixic acid resistant Typhoid.(NARST). Key words: Cephalosporin; drug resistance; Enteric fever; Fluoroquinolone; Salmonella typhi. DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.3126/jnps.v31i3.5361 J Nep Paedtr Soc 2011;31(3): 216-221
Dynamic Reconstruct for Network Photograph Exploration

International Journal of Computer Trends and Technology , 2012,
Abstract: Photograph sear reconstructmethods usually fail to capture the user’s intention when the query termism ambiguous. Therefore, reconstruct with user interactions, or active reconstruct, is highly demanded to effect veryimprove the search performance. The essential problem in active reconstruct is how to target the user’s intention. To complete this goal, this paper presents a structural information based sample selection strategy to reduce the user’s labeling efforts. Furthermore, to localize the user’s intention in the visual feature e space, a novel local-global discriminative dimension reduction algorithmic proposed. In this algorithm, a sub manifold is leer need by transferring the local geometry and the discriminate vet information from the labeled photographs to the whole (global) photographdatabase. Experiments on both synthetic datasets and a real Network photograph sear chdatasetdemenstruate he effectiveness of the proposed active reconstruct scheme, including both the structural information based active sample selection strategy and the local-global discriminative dimension reduction algorithm.
Liminal transformations: folding the surface of the photograph  [cached]

Abstract: At once a material object and a multitude of paths, the photograph is a useful place to begin thinking about the threshold. In the photograph we might dwell on the nuances of the threshold, its ability to be an ‘inbetween’ and a gateway to a ‘beyond’ simultaneously. Indeed, the photograph offers both possibilities. The work of Bhabha, Benjamin and Sontag elucidates this slippage. In this uncertainty, ‘inbetween’ and ‘beyond’ signal another productive intersection. The liminality of the threshold marks this terrain as a spatial transgression that ushers in a temporal disjuncture. The threshold is a shadow zone, as ordinary as a stairwell and as transformative as a breakthrough. In attempting to map the threshold, the paper borrows from Deleuze and Marks on enfolding and unfolding as a means through which knowledge becomes accessible, or remains concealed. To some extent, mapping the threshold is a process that begins unfolding from the discussion of surface, gaze and perception. Yet despite these markers, mapping the threshold of photographs proves difficult and elusive. In this respect, Wittgenstein’s notion of ‘seeing aspects’ helps explain the way that the threshold always exceeds our attempts at mapping and defies perception. The paper examines this impasse through the ‘fold of the surface’, an action which transgresses the flatness of the image without altering it. Perhaps this is the closest we can be to the threshold without holding it. à la fois objet matériel et multitude de chemins, la photographie est un lieu privilégié pour commencer à réfléchir sur le seuil. Dans la photo, nous pouvons nous attarder sur les nuances du seuil, son caractère simultané d’ entre-deux et de portail vers un au-delà en même temps. En effet, la photo offre en effet ces deux possibilités. Les travaux de Bhabha, Benjamin et Sontag éclaircissent ce glissement. Dans cet incertain, l’ entre-deux et l’ au-delà donnent lieu à une autre intersection productive. La liminalité du seuil marque ce terrain comme une transgression spatiale qui se précipite vers une disjonction temporelle. Le seuil est une zone d’ombre, aussi commun qu’une cage d’escalier et aussi révolutionnaire qu’une percée. Dans une tentative d’établir une carte du seuil, cet article emprunte à Deleuze et Marks l’idée du pli et du déploiement comme moyen à travers lequel le savoir devient accessible ou reste dissimulé. Dans une certaine mesure, cartographier le seuil est un processus qui commence le déploiement par la discussion de la surface, du regard et de la perception. Cependant, malgré ces r

Abstract: The aim of this paper was estimate if there was correlation between clinically and radiographically evaluated eruption level of the lower third molar and incidence and severity of the acute infection, respectively. Methods and material: The study was conducted in 100 male examinees, age range from 18 to 25 years old, with clinical and radiographic diagnosis of partially erupted or non erupted third molars. Results: Total number of examinees with clinically registered partially erupted lower third molars was 75, of which 62 (82.6%) manifested infection. Non erupted third molars were in 25 examinees of which 11 (44%) had signs of infection. Partial eruption stage of the third molar was the most common cause of the light infection form (68.8%). Infective complications in over 60% of examinees were related to higher levels of teeth eruption. Higher eruption positions of lower third molars were causing light infections in 56.1%, and in 31.5% - severe forms of infection. Most frequently, lower third molar was related to occurrence and severity of the infection when positioned in occlusal plane level. Conclusion: Partially erupted lower third molar, when positioned in occlusal plane level, is the high risk tooth for an infection to occur.

Abstract: Pharmacognosy, which literally means studying medications of natural sources, has been a part of medical arts and sciences since mankind first began to treat illnesses [2]. To get a proper perspective about this science, which deals with plant, animal, mineral and other natural medications, it is extremely helpful to investigate the historical aspects of this science and to recognize the pioneers of this field. By an experience obtained from trial and error, early man had to acquire biologic knowledge useful in determining the effects of available foods and beverages derived from plants. Although the pharmacognosy term was used for the first time in 1811 by the Austrian physician, Schimdt, the founder of the first independent pharmacognosy institute in the world was Crovatian Domac in 1896 [2-4]. In the field of pharmacognosy the Persian outstanding scientists like Rhazes, Avicenna and Jorjani created major progresses and improvements that started modern pharmacognosy in the world. Fortunately traditional medicine and its remedies contribute to a major role in the current health care systems of several countries [4,5].The study of medications of plant origin includes the subjects of botany, chemistry and pharmacology. Botany includes toxonomy, genetics, and cultivation of plants. Chemical characterization includes the isolation, elucidation and quantification of constituents and natural products pharmacology. The science of pharmacognosy has been progressed to phytochemistry, plant biotechnology, medical ethnobotany, ethnopharmacology, phytotherapy, marine and zoo pharmacognosy. Although pharmacognosy has been improved and expanded in several aspects, it has no hard link with clinical trials yet [2,5].Clinical pharmacy requires optimum use of medications, therapeutic knowledge, counseling, clinical experience, therapeutic drug monitoring and disease good diagnosis. A clinical pharmacist collaborates with physicians in multidisciplinary meetings and rounds and would

Abstract: OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effectiveness of endoscopic third ventriculostomy in pediatric patients as an alternative to shunt revision in the management of hydrocephalus.MATERIAL and METHODS The clinical data of 10 patients treated with endoscopic third ventriculostomy for malfunctioning shunts due to mechanical or dynamical shunt complications were retrospectively reviewed. RESULTS Seven patients (70%) experienced successful outcomes, resulting in shunt independence. There have been no delayed failures following endoscopic third ventriculostomy in those cases. Of the three failures, the symptoms related to increased intracranial pressure became manifest within a median of 6 days, resulting in a new shunt placement. CONCLUSION The results of the present series show that endoscopic third ventriculostomy may constitute a valuable alternative to shunt revision in pediatric patients affected by hydrocephalus presenting with shunt malfunction. Because endoscopic third ventriculostomy is an opportunity for a hydrocephalic child to become shunt-free, it should be considered in all suitable cases as the first-choice treatment.
