Nasser Sabatsani
Journal of Applied Sciences , 2007,
Abstract: Bushehr city is one of the famous city in the south of Iran which is situated in the coastal part of Persian Gulf. This paper try to discuss one of the most important theme which threat the sustainability and comfortability of tomorrow’s life. Changing Bushehr into an Energic city is one of the effective ways to solve the cities problem. For this purpose, we try to answer these questions: what is called as an energic city?; What are its main characteristics?; What are the aims of changing a city into an energic city? And what should be done to obtain the aims? For these purposes we offer a model which responds to the sustainability of Bushehr. This model uses 3 levels of activity that each level should respond to 5 significant characteristics of an energic city. For this purpose we present some applied ways in each category to obtain those characteristics.

Bhaskar Kura, Catherine Dunn, Amrita Iyer, Elena Bourbour Ajdari
Journal of Geoscience and Environment Protection (GEP) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/gep.2014.22020
Abstract: Ports are a major source of economic activity and environmental pollution. They use a variety of equipment for loading/unloading and movement of cargo, such as marine vessels, cranes, trucks and railroads. These activities can cause large amounts of pollution to the air, water and soil media. Despite the pollution generated, it also serves as a medium for tourism with its cruise liners. This paper discusses port activities and how it effects the environment. The main focus of this paper is Knowledge Sharing for Sustainability of Ports. Sustainability indicators should help in evaluating port conditions and this knowledge sharing among the proposed 10 major world ports should accelerate economic growth and use of latest technologies for pollution reduction.

M. Ahmadpour Borazjani,G.R. Soltani
Journal of Science and Technology of Agriculture and Natural Resources , 2000,
Abstract: Marine products are currently important in Iran due to the following reasons: 1) aquatics are recognized as safe and healthy food by food scientists; 2) because of low dependence of fishing technology on foreign resources, they are more reliable sources for protein and food security. Therefore, it is important to increase labor productivity using advanced fishing technology under a sustainable fishery management policy. In general, the prevailing methods of fishing in the southern coasts of Iran can be classified into three groups based on the level of technology and the length of journey made: traditional, semi-industrial, and industrial. In this study, labor productivity in the traditional and semi-industrial groups were compared using data obtained from a sample of 35 fishermen in Bushehr Province. To determine the marginal and average labor productivities, transcendental production functions were estimated for fish and shrimp, separately. The findings indicated that the marginal and average productivities of labor in semi-industrial fishing were significantly higher than in traditional fishing.
PERFORMANCE ASSESSMENT IN OPERATING DRY PORTS  [PDF]
Ciortescu Cezar-Gabriel
Annals of the University of Oradea : Economic Science , 2010,
Abstract: In this paper, an approach for recognizing and defining correct and operable performance will be presented with the purpose of evaluating the effectiveness and efficiency of processes in dry ports (inland intermodal hubs). The challenge in evaluating the possible improvements of the underlying processes lies in the special nature and the complex structure of dry ports. It is important to consider that all the processes are highly interconnected and that changes in parameters in one process also have an impact on parameters in other processes. Furthermore, the performance of dry ports, seen as the backbone of the system, has a significant impact on the overall performance of the whole transportation network.

Navidpour, S.,Soleglad, M.E.,Fet, V.,Kova?ík, F.
Euscorpius , 2008,
Abstract: The Bushehr Province of Iran contains the type localities of three scorpion taxa, Mesobuthus eupeus phillipsii (Pocock, 1889), Orthochirus iranus Kova ík, 2004, and Scorpio maurus townsendi (Pocock, 1900). Apart from them, Androctonus crassicauda (Olivier, 1807), Compsobuthus matthiesseni (Birula, 1905), Hottentotta saulcyi (Simon, 1880), Odontobuthus bidentatus Louren o & Pézier, 2002, Razianus zarudnyi (Birula, 1903), and Hemiscorpius lepturus Peters, 1862 have also been known to occur in the province. Collections made by a team under Shahrokh Navidpour (Razi Reference Laboratory of Scorpion Research, Razi Vaccine and Serum Research Institute, Ahvaz, Khoozestan, Iran) reveal four additional species recorded from the province for the first time: Buthacus macrocentrus (Ehrenberg, 1828), Compsobuthus jakesi Kova ík, 2003, Orthochirus farzanpayi (Vachon & Farzanpay, 1987), and Orthochirus stockwelli (Louren o et Vachon, 1995). In addition, Compsobuthus persicus sp. n. is described as a species new to science, bringing the total species count to 14. A key to all species of scorpions found in Bushehr Province is presented.

Abstract: Backgound: Approximately half of the diabetics population type 2 are not aware of their disease .Lack of awareness can lead to development of diabetes and increase cost of treatment. The aim of this survey was to determine the level of population awareness in Bushehr port in south of Iran in Bushehr prov-ince.Methods: In this cross-sectional study, 719 subjects (417 male and 302 female) aged over 18 years old, without diabetes and inhabitant in Bushehr port in 2005 were assessed. Multi-stage random simple sampling was used. A 39 question questionnaire was used with validity checked by researchers in Yazd Diabetes Research Center and reliability alpha-cronbach=75%.The data were analyzed with independ-ent t-test, pearson correlation coefficient , ANOVA and Multiple Logistic Regression models by SPSS package ver. 10.05.Results: Mean and SD of scores of subjects knowledge levels were 16.96 and 6.29, respectively. The levels of males' awareness rate was more than females' (P=0.001). There was indirect relation between subjects awareness and their age (r=-0.203, P=0.001) and direct relation between awareness and the level of education (P=0.01, r=0.07).The mean of awareness scores was not similar between singles and married (P=0.042). Awareness regarding fundamental diabetes disease, primary symptoms, early com-pli-ca-tions, delay complications, diet awareness was low and concerning controlling methods of diabetes was high.Conclusion: Awareness in relation to fundamental and complications of diabetes disease was low, so the people need more education about diabetes.

Incidence Rate of G6PD Deficiency in Newborns in Bushehr/Iran
A Movahhed,Sh Farrokhi
Iranian Journal of Pediatrics , 2003,
Abstract: We studied 415 newborns in the city of Bushehr in order to identify infants with G6PD deficiency and eliminate the induction of acute hemolytic crisis by informing the families about the extrinsic factors that the G6PD-deficient patients should avoid. The method used in the study was the fluorescent spot test. Abnormal fluorescence due to G6DP deficiency (severe and partial) was found in 8.4% of the samples (6.5% severe and 1.9% partial), i.e. 1 in 51 females and 1 in 7 males. This study suggests the necessity for the establishment of a screening test as a routine for all newborns, especially in the coastal cities in order to make an opportune detection and an appropriate counseling available.
