Open Journal of Preventive Medicine (OJPM) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ojpm.2014.43013

Background: Low birth weight (LBW) is a well-known factor associated with neonatal mortality and has contributed to a range of poor health outcomes. Thus, the objective of this study was to determine factors associated with LBW infants. Methods: A matched case control study was conducted in Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia. Data of deliveries were obtained from Total Hospital Information System and medical records. All registered deliveries from January to June 2012 were used as sample populations. There were 180 pairs of cases and controls matched on babies’ gender. Fourteen variables were analyzed: maternal age, ethnicity, gravida, parity, gestational age, maternal booking weight, height and body mass index (BMI), history of low birth weight infants, birth interval, booking hemoglobin levels, hypertension, diabetes mellitus and mode of delivery. Results: Younger mother (t = 6.947, p < 0.001), lower booking BMI (t = 3.067, p = 0.002), prematurity (t = 12.324, p < 0.001), history of LBW infants (OR = 3.0, p = 0.001), LSCS (OR = 0.06, p = 0.001) and current hypertension (OR = 3.1, p = 0.008) were found significant in bivariate analysis. Multivariable conditional logistic regression identified younger maternal age (AOR = 2.9, 95% CI = 1.86 -4.51, p < 0.001), previous history of LBW infants (AOR = 3.7, 95% CI = 1.03 -13.58, p = 0.045), prematurity (AOR = 2.4, 95% CI = 1.79 -3.26, p < 0.001), and current hypertension (AOR = 4.5, 95% CI = 1.06 -19.22, p = 0.041) as significant factors associated with LBW infants. Conclusion: Younger maternal age, history of LBW infants, prematurity and hypertension have been recognized as predictors of LBW infants. The importance of pre-pregnancy screening, early antenatal booking and proper identification of high risk-mother needs to be strengthened and enforced in effort to reduce incidence of LBW infants.

Pakistan Journal of Nutrition , 2012,
Abstract: Nutrition for children especially during the development stage is crucial. A lot of studies have been done to observe the effects of nutrition on child cognition development but the situation in Iraq is absolutely different. A cross-sectional study was carried out in Baghdad city, Iraq to assess the nutritional status and nutritional habit of primary school children and to relate it with their Intelligence Quotient (IQ) score using standardized tools. The prevalence of malnutrition was 12.1% among Iraqi children. Nutritional status, nutritional habit and breakfast intake were significantly associated with children intelligence (p = <0.001, <0.001, <0.001) respectively. Malnutrition among children is still to be a public health issue in Iraq and it is affecting the child cognitive function and academic performance at school.
Islamic - Bank Selection Criteria In Malaysia: An AHP Approach
Muhamad Abduh,Mohd Azmi Omar
Business Intelligence Journal , 2012,
Abstract: The study of bank selection criteria has received attention from many bank marketing researchers. However, from its inception in three decades ago, this kind of study is still scanty for Islamic banking industry. The purpose of this study was to investigate the Islamic-bank selection criteria, particularly in Malaysia. To accomplish this purpose, information collected from 279 respondents within the Klang-valley area was incorporated in the analysis. The Analytic Hierarchy Process was used to rank the criteria based on the respondents' preferences. The result has shown that shariah-compliant attribute is the highest priority before an individual decides to patronize an Islamic bank. The next priorities are given to profitability, bank's reputation, bank's status, facilities and services, and friendly personnel respectively. Thus, one of the implications of this study is that Islamic banks cannot be too liberal by following all the footprints of conventional bank without giving attention to shariah principles and objectives of shariah.

International Journal of Energy and Environment , 2010,
Abstract: A comprehensive computer code using ”C” language was developed for compression ignition (C.I) engine cycle and modified in to low heat rejection (LHR) engine through wall heat transfer model. Combustion characteristics such as cylinder pressure, heat release, heat transfer and performance characteristics such as work done, specific fuel consumption (SFC) and brake thermal efficiency (BTE) were analysed. On the basis of first law of thermodynamics the properties at each degree crank angle was calculated. Preparation and reaction rate model was used to calculate the instantaneous heat release rate. The effect of coating on engine heat transfer was analysed using a gas-wall heat transfer calculations and total heat transfer was based on ANNAND’s combined heat transfer model. The predicted results are validated through the experiments on the test engine under identical operating conditions on a turbocharged D.I diesel engine. In this analysis 20% of biodiesel (derived from Jatropha seed oil) blended with diesel was used in both conventional and LHR engine. The simulated combustion and performance characteristics are found satisfactory with the experimental results.

Approximate Analytical Solution to Temperature Profile in a Solid Composite Heated by a Pulsed Laser  [PDF]
Sani Jibrin, Mohd Maarof Moksin, Mohd Shahril Husin, Mohammed Yusuf Waziri, Azmi Bin Zakaria, Zainal Abidin Bin Talib
Engineering (ENG) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/eng.2013.55060
Abstract: The flash technique of thermal diffusivity measurement applied to composite materials is dependent upon the success at deriving and solving the associated heat diffusion equation for the particular boundary problems of the experiment. Orthogonal expansion technique and the Green’s function approach are easier and straight forward for deriving and solving such equations, but the solutions converge very slowly for small times and hence cannot be used for numerical calculations. The Laplace transformation technique on the other hand has advantage of allowing for the making of small time approximation in order to obtain solutions that are very rapidly convergent. The principle difficulty of this technique is in the inversion of the resulting transform from s to t domain. Inversion by contour integration requires a lot of mastery in integral calculus and the simplest method is therefore to look up for the transform in the standard Laplace conversion table. At first look not all subsidiary equations can be converted using the Laplace transform conversion table; in this work however, we present the mathematical analysis by means of which analytical solutions to heat diffusion problem in composite media; hitherto only transformed via contour integration, is obtained directly from the Laplace transform conversion tables.

Open Journal of Safety Science and Technology (OJSST) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/ojsst.2017.73010
Abstract: The current and growing construction industry in the country has led to increasing of accidents related to construction workers. In an attempt to decrease accidents on site, the design safety concept is the most suitable measures to date. Though the impact is evident and potential benefits of its implementation are apparent, widespread application of this intervention in the Malaysia’s construction industry is currently lacking especially in the academic sector. Therefore, this paper aims to explore the integration of safety and health to the current curricula focusing on the engineering programmes and their perceptions towards design safety concept and its implementation. The types of design disciplines included in the research study were limited to academicians. A total of 72 respondents received via questionnaire and the?responses were scored on a 5-point Likert Scale to express their level?of agreement. The results show that the graduates are not equipped with adequate knowledge of safety and health legislation and regulations through the current curricula and disagree that the content of the programmes is adequate. Although majority agree on the positive effect of design safety towards accidents on site, there is still minority who believe that the concept has no significant effect towards site safety. However, this paper concludes that there is no major impediment from the academic sector on the implementation and integration of design safety concept to the undergraduate curricula. The implementation of design safety should be in a well organized structure for effective results towards zeroaccident as well as increases the designers value in the construction industry.

International Journal of Materials, Mechanics and Manufacturing , 2013, DOI: 10.7763/ijmmm.2013.v1.10
Abstract: The Fringing Electric Field (FEF) element design consideration has been discussed in this paper. This type of sensor is planned to be used for the Non-Destructive Test (NDT) measurement of a moisture level in soil for irrigation system in the field and green house. The effect of soil type and its moisture level has been taken into account by preparing several types of soil moisture level in the lab by performing measurement and calculation as proposed by several papers. It has been shown that the FEF parameters such as the dielectric constant, numbers of finger for FEF design and the working frequency played an important role for FEF design considerations. The performance of the FEF element sensor had been compared with the commercial sensor for benchmarking.

Journal of Sustainability Science and Management , 2010,
Abstract: An extensive survey on ichthyofauna was carried out at five tributaries of Sungai Kelantan in 2009 to determine whether turbidity has influence on the diversity of fishes. Fishes were collected using various fishing gears and secchi disc was used to measure water transparency or light-penetration level. Species Richness and Simpson index of diversity were used in the analysis to compare the species diversity. A total of 779 fishes were collected comprising 36 species belonging to nine orders (Beloniformes, Channiformes, Cypriniformes, Mastacembelliformes, Osteoglossiformes, Perciformes, Sygnathiformes, Symbranchiformes, and Siluriformes) and twelve families. The ichthyofauna were dominated by the cyprinids (19 species) and detrivores. The result shows that Sungai Pergau, upper part of the Sungai Kelantan system, having the least turbid water, were identified as having the most diverse fish community compared to the lower part of the Sungai Kelantan system. This study can be regarded as a significant contribution to the understanding of ichthyofauna of the Kelantan river.
