Sedimentary Environments Can Be Changed by Geotechnology (Case Study: A Morphotectonic Idea for Design of Extensive Artificial Bay on the Iranian Plateau)  [PDF]
Mehran Arian, Azar Khodabakhshnezhad
International Journal of Geosciences (IJG) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ijg.2015.65039
Abstract: Iranian Plateau between the Lesser Caucasus-Alborz Mountains on the north and Zagros-Makran Ranges on the south has several inter-mountainous depressions which were filled by Quaternary deposits. Geologic evidence implied that, the last marine conditions in some depressions such as the Dasht-e Kavir, Dasht-e Lut and Jazmourian basins, had been changed to land conditions in middle Miocene. Based on shape and elevation of the Dasht-e Kavir, Dasht-e Lut and Jazmourian plains related to sea level and geomorphology of Iranian plateau, three semi-connective artificial lakes can be constructed upon the mentioned plains by consideration of many geologic and geotechnical parameters. These artificial lakes can feed by pumping of water from Oman Sea and form a triple artificial bay which they must be connected together by two gated straits. Therefore, a possible morphotectonic idea with many advantages has suggested that it can be present as an international geotechnologic design. This design has the important environmental impacts which can be changed desert to lake sedimentary basins.
Salt Tectonics in the Southern Iran  [PDF]
Azar Khodabakhshnezhad, Mehran Arian
International Journal of Geosciences (IJG) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/ijg.2016.73029
Abstract: Based on geographic distribution and geological setting of salt plugs in southern Iran, three salt diapiric provinces have been distinguished. These provinces include the Hormuz, Shiraz-Kazerun and Nyriz-Jahrum sub-basins. There are more than hundred salt plugs which they have been formed and developed in the southern margin of Iran. The salt structures that originated from Hormuz formation in these areas have been restricted and separated from each other for the first time in this paper. Salt diapirism of these provinces has been triggered earlier by Halokinesis in the Zagros and Persian Gulf basins, but it has affected later by tectonic forces, because orientation, shape and position of salt plugs have been followed from convergence regime (especially in the Zagros hinterland). In the other hand, based on our results from salt plugs in Persian Gulf foreland basin and the Zagros hinterland, Halokinesis triggers has been affected more than Halotectonic forces.
Folding Mechanism in the Asmari Anticline, Zagros, Iran  [PDF]

Open Journal of Geology (OJG) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ojg.2015.54018
Abstract: Asmari anticline is a NW-SE fold in the Dezful Embayment sub-basin of Zagros. Fars group (Late Moicene-Quaternary) is cropping out in the cores of anticlines in this area, but Pabdeh and Asmari formations (Oligocene-Early Miocene) have cropped out only in Asmari anticline in the Dezful Embayment. Therefore, it has formed a unique exposure for above formations. In order to this situation, folding mechanism of Asmari anticline has investigated in this research. According to ourresults, Asmari anticline has two mechanisms: flexural-slip in post-Cretaceous sequences(Khami-Quaternary) and fault-bend folding in pre-Cretaceous sequences. So, there is a hybrid folding mechanism that has introduced for the first time in this paper.

Journal of Environmental Protection (JEP) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/jep.2016.76070

Pollution represents an important threat to human health. Waste pollution with its adverse health risks, mainly cancer incidences, is one of the main issues present in Lebanon. Random disposal of wastes is instilling a complex and challenging situation that is affecting the entire population. Here, a comprehensive study is presented along with collected data addressing the correlation between long-term exposure to the different forms of pollution and the chances of being affected with cancer. Lebanon, a country currently facing an extensive garbage crisis, is undergoing alarming surges in pollution rates. Inevitably, these environmental factors become chief elements in influencing disease statistics. It is therefore of urgent importance to seek all solutions possible while raising awareness in order to reduce life threatening risks.

The Standalone and the Portfolio Risk of the Rogers Energy Commodity Index  [PDF]
Samih Antoine Azar
Theoretical Economics Letters (TEL) , 2019, DOI: 10.4236/tel.2019.94045
Abstract: This paper tackles the rather recent weekly period from January 18, 2005 to February 28, 2018, encompassing 523 observations. The portfolio is constructed from the perspective either of a US investor or of a Lebanese one, since the US dollar foreign exchange rate was pegged during the above whole period. The portfolio consists of an investment in the US S & P 500 stock market index and in three Rogers international commodity indexes: agricultural, energy, and metals. The purpose of the paper is to estimate the diversification benefits of the energy commodity index. These benefits arise from the fall in the volatility of the investment portfolio when it is compared to an investment in the energy index only, or in the S & P 500 only. The procedure follows the seminal approach of Markowitz. The inputs of the model are the variance/covariance matrix, the average log returns, and the condition that all investment shares should sum up to 1. The outputs, obtained by matrix manipulation, are the optimal investment shares in the four assets, the volatilities of the optimal portfolios, the characteristics of the efficient frontier, the relation between portfolio shares and the expected, or required return, and finally, the predicted Capital Market Line (CML). The evidence shows that, by holding a portfolio composed of the above four assets, the volatilities are substantially reduced. Moreover, and since short sales are allowed in the model, all optimal investment shares in the energy commodity asset are negative, meaning that in the optimal portfolios the positions in the energy index are short positions. The paper points to the significantly high relative riskiness of the energy index, as a stand-alone asset, or as an aggressive and speculative investment on the CML, and to the substantial portfolio benefits of shorting this index.
The Possibility of Using RFID System to Automate and Integrate the Attendance of Professors and Students in the Classroom  [PDF]

Intelligent Control and Automation (ICA) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/ica.2016.74010
Abstract: One of the most important goals followed in most systems is to increase efficiency, reduce errors and enhance ease of data entry tasks such as better services in organizations. Therefore, the use of intelligent tools is of the most important requirements for a management system in order to collect complete and accurate data and create complete information. In management, use of new technologies is recommended to have smart systems and reduce human errors. This study aimed to investigate “professors and students attendance system using RFID” and research population consists of professors and students. Findings show that, as attendance checking system in universities and schools is done through the class list and checking attendance of students needs to spend time and energy so it leads to a waste of valuable time and energy of professors to teach. Therefore, it is essential to use efficient and modern systems, because with the design and implementation of RFID attendance system and replacing the traditional system, time and energy waste could be avoided and attendance system could be promoted to an intelligent and integrated one. The designed system includes a number of hours of presence and absence, delays and rush to pay the salaries of professors at the University with its automatic identification through radio frequency. This system aims to create changes in this area and it is economic in whole.

Congenital Chloride Diarrhea: A Case Report
Azar Nickavar
Iranian Journal of Pediatrics , 2007,
Abstract: Objective: Congenital chloride diarrhea (CCD) is a rare autosomal recessive disorder of intestinal chloride absorption. Pathognomonic features consist of watery diarrhea, failure to thrive, dehydration and hypokalemic hypochloremic metabolic alkalosis. Case Presentation: This is the report on an 8-month old Iranian girl with severe and complicated course of CCD and poor response to current treatment. In addition, she had a renal tubular defect in uric acid handling, resulted in persistent hyperuricosuria and hypouricemia. Conclusion: Specific characteristics of CCD in our population need additional investigation. But, it is recomm ended to consider CCD in any patient with severe resistant diarrhea to prevent its irreversible and long term organ damage.
Quality or Quantity: A Statement for Teacher Training in Turkey
Yüksek??retim ve Bilim Dergisi , 2011,
Abstract: Developed countries are initiating and implementing effective and appropriate technics in the field of teacher training. In Turkey, much research has been done in order to determine the qualification of teachers and, by this way, to train qualified teachers. Ministry of Education, Turkish Council of Higher Education, Faculties of Education and Faculties of Sciences have cooperated some certification systems, however, the research which is not supported by preliminary studies but exposured to political coercions lowered the quality of education. Besides, quantity is increased by pedagogical formation programs. In this study, Turkish teacher training system is analyzed with respect to quantity and quality.
Late Medieval Self-Portraiture and Patronage in Pietro da Pavia’s Ambrosiana Pliny
Azar Rejaie
Authorship , 2011,
Abstract: In the late Trecento Fra Pietro da Pavia, a miniaturist in the court-city of the dukes of Milan, illuminated a copy of Pliny's Natural History for Pasquino Capelli, a famous bibliophile and one of the most powerful chancellors to Duke Giangaleazzo Visconti. In the illuminated letter M that begins book XXXV, which contains Pliny's discussion on ancient artists, Fra Pietro signs and dates the manuscript Frater Pietro da Papia me fecit, 1389. Within the framing curves of the letter the illuminator further commemorates his involvement in the manuscript's creation by means of a small but exquisitely detailed self-portrait in which Pietro shows himself industriously at work.Although created in an era in which art patrons possessed and sometimes exercised the right of refusal should a commissioned work of art not meet their standards, this self-portrait has hitherto not been interrogated for either the purpose behind its presence or how its original audience might have understood it. This essay attempts to shed light on both issues by examining the historical context surrounding the creation and format of Pietro's self-image, and by considering Pietro's signature inscription in relation to Pliny's discourse on the meaning behind the use of the word "fecit" in an artist's signature. It further considers the influence exerted by Francesco Petrarca [Petrarch] on the Milanese court in order to suggest that the presentation of Fra Pietro's self-image drew upon Petrarch's model of authorial identity in a way that the illuminator's important patron would have appreciated and perhaps encouraged.
