Spindle Cell Carcinoma of the Maxilla: A Case Report of Rare Entity  [PDF]
Montasir Junaid, Maliha Kazi, Sadaf Qadeer
Surgical Science (SS) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/ss.2017.85025
Abstract: Spindle cell carcinoma also known as sarcomatoid carcinoma is a rare highly aggressive tumor which is histologically different from squamous cell ca and mesenchymal cancers. Only hands full of cases have been reported in literature since 1957 and hence no proper treatment protocol has been devised yet. We present such a case of thirty-four-year-old female who presented with spindle cell carcinoma of the maxilla at our department and was treated with extensive surgery followed by chemotherapy and radiation therapy. Spindle cell carcinoma is generally associated with poor prognosis and hence literature supports use of post operative Chemo and Radiotherapy for better result and decrease chance of local recurrence.

Investigating the Transmission Channels of the Global Financial Crisis to Tanzania  [PDF]
Maduhu Kazi
Modern Economy (ME) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/me.2014.54032

This paper uses a series of Tanzania’s annual real GDP data for the period of 1970 to 2010, to investigate the transmission channels through which the ongoing financial crisis is affecting the economy. The channels which were examined are foreign aid, export earnings and Foreign Direct Investment (FDI). The paper also investigated how an increase in government expenditure, as popularly known as the stimulus package can boost the Tanzanian economy. Foreign aid was found to possess the positive sign as was expected and is statistically significant. Therefore there is a possibility that the ongoing global crisis has impacted the economy via a reduced foreign aid which is associated with recession in the developed economies; aid donors in this context. It was also found that the global financial crisis had a significant effect on Tanzania’s economic growth through other transmission channels namely FDI and exports. However, all the coefficients were small, indicating the little impact of the global financial crisis to Tanzania’s economy.

Abstract: This study was designed to find out the relationship of demographic characteristics with academic achievement of university students. The relationship of selected demographic characteristics including gender, age, location of residence, household income and parents’ education with academic achievement was examined. Correlation analysis was performed to measure the relationship among the variables and regression analysis was performed to examine the predictivesignificance of demographic characteristics for academic achievement. Results indicated a significant correlation between academic achievement and demographic characteristics. The model of demographic factors was found significant predictor of academic achievement ofuniversity students which accounted for 1i% variance in academic achievement.

Abstract: This study was designed to examine the mediating effect of emotional intelligence on the relationship of cultural adjustment of international students with their academic achievement.The sample consisted of 100 international students studying in different departments of International Islamic University Islamabad and National University of Modern Languages (NUML). Cultural Adjustment Scale (CAS) was used to measure the adjustment level of students. BarOn Emotional Quotient Inventory (EQi) was used to measure emotionalintelligence. The study posits emotional intelligence as a mediating variable in the relationship of cultural adjustment and academic achievement as it was assumed to be correlated with both variables. The relationship among the variables was examined throughcorrelation analysis. A significant correlation was found among the three variables. The mediating effect of emotional intelligence was confirmed through partial correlation.

Health (Health) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/health.2013.511248

Objective: Contraception has gained gradual popularity in many parts of the developing world including Pakistan. Despite this increase in acceptance, the birth rate remains high. Failure of contraception has been reported in the literature, which made us aim to conduct this study. The efficiency of hormonal contraceptives in the study area was assessed and this is the first report from Pakistan. Methods: A total of 200 women (aged 20-30 and 31-40 years; n = 100 each) with minimum consistent use of hormonal contraceptives in the form of pills (Combined oral contraceptives) for 12 months were enrolled in this study. Blood samples were collected from women of each age group and corresponding control groups (n = 100) from local hospitals and reproductive health service center. Serum levels of the fertility hormones viz leutinizing and follicle stimulating hormones were measured through ELISA technique. Results: Our data revealed that over all in the both age groups, 72% women had normal, 16% increased and 12% showed decreased levels of leutinizing hormone (p > 0.05) and 67% women showed normal, 33% showed decreased and no increased levels were found for follicle stimulating hormone (p > 0.05). No age-wise significant difference in response was observed among both the age groups tested. Conclusion: Statistically insignificant difference in serum leutinizing hormone and follicle stimulating hormone seen among both the age groups of hormonal contraceptive users and control group indicates less effective hormonal contraception response in the study area.

Hoque Kazi Arshadul
Beijing Law Review (BLR) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/blr.2018.92022
Abstract: Rights and protection of workers is very important for any organization for achieving success and desired profit and also for smooth running. As a complete code of life Islam describes the rights and duties of the workers and employers. It places substances in dealing with protection accorded to workers. Employment is regarded as worship in Islam that requires observing full dedication, sincerity and commitment from both the workers and the employers. Internationally rights of the labourers are embedded in various international documents such as “Universal Declaration of Human Rights” and in the “Conventions and Recommendations” of the International Labour Organization. All states have their own labour law and policy to protect and guide both the employers and employees. Bangladesh has its own labour law and policy to regulate its labourers and employers and organizations smoothly. The major law regarding labourers in Bangladesh is the Bangladesh Labour Act 2006 that covers almost all rights and duties of Bangladeshi workers and employers. Islam is that kind of religion which always plays vital role upon Muslims in their daily affairs. In Muslim majorities countries the values of Islam keep strong influence on the laws and practices. This article examines the provisions of rights of the workers in Islam. As a Muslim majority country how far does Bangladesh incorporate or comply with the Islamic rights provisions of labourers. The main purpose of this article is to reveal the notion of workers’ rights and protection which is enjoined to them under Bangladeshi labour law that has long been accorded by the Islam. Analytical approach is taken as methodology to reach the aim of the paper.

Food and Nutrition Sciences (FNS) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/fns.2011.29128
Abstract: Chemical compositionof the residual pits from processing of date (Phoenix dactylifera L.) variety khalas from AL-Hasa region–Saudi Arabia was investigated. The extracted oil from residual pits was analyzed for its physico-chemical properties, (refractive index, colour, acid value, peroxide value, iodine number, saponification number and unsaponifiable matter), total phenols, tocopherol content, fatty acid composition, hydrocarbons, and sterol compounds by gas liquid chromatography, and oxidative stability by Rancimat method at 100℃ ± 2℃. Mineral content of date pits was analyzed by atomic absorption spectrophotometry. Date pit oil was used to replace conventional oil in producing mayonnaise, and sensory qualities were evaluated in comparison with commercial mayonnaise prepared from corn oil. The data demonstrated that mayonnaise containing date pit oil was superior in sensory characteristics as compared with control manufactured from corn oil. Results showed that the date pit oil could be used as nontraditional oil in some food processing such as mayonnaise products.

Abstract: Objective: Calcium ion plays an important role in gingival hyperplasia due toits effects on hemostatic balance of epithelial differentiation and apoptosis. It is hypothesized that non inflamed gingivalfibroblasts are less active and do not respond to circulating drugs. While the fibroblasts within inflamed tissue are in anactive state. Hence a study was conducted to investigate and assess the relationship between oral hygiene and severityof gingival hyperplasia in hypertensive patients receiving verapamil. Design of study : In the present comparativeinvestigation, clinical periodontal parameters were determined. Material & Methods: Thirty hypertensive patients whowere taking verapamil 240 mg/day in divided doses selected randomly. Subjects were divided in to HEL groups. Agingival enlargement score was assessed for each patient by using hyper plastic index, while using plaque indexassessed the oral hygiene status. Results: There were highly significant differences between test groups E and L, whenthey were compared with group H (Healthy group). Mean plaque index and hyper plastic index varied between testgroups H, E and L. The differences showed statistical high significance. Conclusions: Oral hygiene plays a decisiverole in the development of gingival hyperplasia and the incidence can be controlled successfully by meticulousprofessional and individual oral hygiene.
