Agricultural development and arthropod-borne diseases: a review
Revista de Saúde Pública , 1991, DOI: 10.1590/S0034-89101991000300002
Abstract: a review is presented of the interrelationships between arthropod vectors, the diseases they transmit and agricultural development. particular attention is given to the effects of deforestation, livestock development and irrigation on the abundance of vectors and changing patterns of diseases such as malaria, trypanosomiases, leishmaniasis, chagas' and some arboviral infections. the question as whether keeping livestock diverts biting away from people and reduces diseases such as malaria - that is zooprophylaxis, or whether the presence of cattle actually increases biting populations is discussed.

An Analysis of Abu Mus’ab al-Suri’s “Call to Global Islamic Resistance”
M.W. Zackie
Journal of Strategic Security , 2013, DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.5038/1944-0472.6.1.1
Abstract: This article is a contribution to the study of religious radicalization, in particular, religious radicalization that promotes violence. The term “radicalization” will be used here to refer to the process through which individuals adopt or promote an “extremist belief system for the purpose of facilitating ideologically-based violence to advance political, religious, or social change.”[1] This study applies discourse analysis[2] to a prominent radical Islamic text published after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 (9/11): Mustafa bin Abd al-Qadir Setmariam Nasar’s Call to Global Islamic Resistance (2004) – hereafter referred to as GIR (Global Islamic Resistance). As will be detailed in the sections to come, this study analyses the beliefs and worldview evident in GIR, and seeks to elucidate its persuasiveness.[1] Rogers, L., Big Brother: House passes the “Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act,” 2007, available at: http://www.nogw.com/download/_07_thought_crime_bill.pdf.[2] In particular, the frame and narrative (thematic) analysis aspects of discourse analysis will be utilized.

Abstract: Chronic renal failure (CRF) occurring in sickle cell disease has a dismal outcome. The systematic screening for microalbuminuria represents the touchstone to prevent CRF in patients with diabetes mellitus. Microalbuminuria has also been demonstrated in patients with sickle cell disease. Whether this has the same prognostic significance as it does in diabetes mellitus has never been clearly stated. The purpose of the present study was to determine the prevalence of microalbuminuria and to establish the clinical significance of microalbuminuria in patients with sickle cell disease. Patients with sickle cell disease of both sexes and all ages were consecutively recruited at the haematology outpatient clinic of the Yopougon Teaching Hospital, Abidjan, Ivory Coast. in a prospective study from July to September 2004. In each patient characteristics such as age, gender, ethnic group, weight, height, blood pressure, type of haemoglobinopathy , glomerular filtration rate, complications related to the disease and current treatment were collected. Microalbuminuria was assessed in all the patients. Statistical analysis was performed to identify factors related to microalbuminuria. The prevalence of microalbuminuria was 17.3% in our study population. Glomerular filtration rate was significantly lower in the microalbuminuric group than in the normoalbuminuric group both on univariate analysis (p<0.01) and on multivariate analysis (OR=1.074) CI 95% [1.020 1.136]) (p<0.01). Height was significantly lower in the microalbuminuric group than in the normoalbuminuric group both on univariate analysis (p=0.05) and on multivariate analysis (OR=1.029 CI 95% [1.003 1.056])(p<0.05). Anaemia was more prevalent in the microalbuminuric group than in the normoalbuminuric group(p<0.05) on univariate analysis but not on multivariate analysis. No relationship has been found between microabuminuria and age, as well as with disease duration and body mass index. Microalbuminuria in sickle cell disease patients represents a feature of more advanced disease as it is significantly related to low glomerular filtration rate. The high prevalence of anaemia in the microalbuminuric patients corroborates the depressed renal function. The role of short height in the promotion of microalbuminuria is unclear.
Improving Food Production by Understanding the Effects of Intercropping and Plant Population on Soybean Nitrogen Fixing Attributes
Elijah M.W. Akunda
Journal of Food Technology in Africa , 2001,
Abstract: This paper quantifies the effects of population density and intercropping on the development and growth of nitrogen fixing attributes of soybean and explains how these attributes influence food through yielding process. Information for this study was obtained from a field study conducted over two rainy seasons comprising of the short and long rains in Kenya. Inoculated soybean was grown in two combinations; sole and intercropped with sorghum at three levels of population densities; 66, 666; 83, 333 and 111, 111 plants ha-1. Estimates of nodule mass, position, density, number, effective nodules and nodulation frequency were monitored at various intervals during the growing season. The responses of nitrogen fixing attributes of soybean varied with cropping pattern, density, stage of growth and the growing season. Intercropping caused decreases in nodule biomass at 21 days after planning (DAP), number of nodules, and nodulation frequency at the 1st, harvest of the 3rd season and at the 1st, 2nd and 3rd harvests of the 4th growing seasons. Significant increases in dinitrogen fixing attributes within intercropped stands were demonstrated for nodule position, percent effective nodules, and percent nodulation frequency at the 2nd and 4th harvests of the 3rd growing season. Influences of density on nodulation frequency during the 4th harvest were highly variable. Density and inter-cropping interactions caused significant decreases for nodule biomass at 21 DAP, percent nodulation at the 4th harvest during the 3rd growing in contrast to those decreases noted at the 2nd, 3rd and 4th only. The study indicates that for soybean yield, any management factors that cause a reduction in nitrogen fixing attributes are crucial to improving yield of soybean. There is therefore need to study the physiology of dinitrogen fixing attributes in order to understand yield processes. The Journal of Food Technology in Africa Volume 6 No.4, 2001, pp. 110-115

Sensing Semantics of RSS Feeds by Fuzzy Matchmaking  [PDF]
M.W. Yuan, P. Jiang, J. Zhu, X.N. Wang
Intelligent Information Management (IIM) , 2010, DOI: 10.4236/iim.2010.22014
Abstract: RSS feeds provide a fast and effective way to publish up-to-date information or renew outdated contents for information subscribers. So far RSS information is mostly managed by content publishers but Internet users have less initiative to choose what they really need. More attention needs to be paid on techniques for user-initiative information discovery from RSS feeds. In this paper, a quantitative semantic matchmaking method for the RSS based applications is proposed. Semantic information is extracted from an RSS feed as numerical vectors and semantic matching can then be conducted quantitatively. Ontology is applied to provide a common-agreed matching basis for the quantitative matchmaking. In order to avoid semantic ambiguity of literal statements from distributed and heterogeneous RSS publishers, fuzzy inference is used to transform an individual-dependent vector into an individual-independent vector. Semantic similarities can be revealed as the result.
