International Journal of Sport Management, Recreation & Tourism , 2012,
Abstract: The present study examines the effects of physical module elements (adventure based activity) included in the Malaysian National Service Programme and to investigate the socio-demographic variables impact on team cohesion building among the participants. In this study, the participants were selected from three different camps, namely, Tasoh camp, Guar Chenderai camp and Meranti camp, located in the state of Perlis, Malaysia. The participants were those from the second batch intake in the year 2007. The sample sizes comprised of 994 participants (480=males, 514=females). The present study applied a pre-test and post-test design. The group was tested before and after the programme. This design was chosen because it could measure the impacts of the adventure-based activity towards team cohesion over time through the pre- and post-test scores (Berg & Latin, 2004). The variables comprised of the demographic factors (age, gender and place of residence), which included team cohesion were measured by Group Environmental Questionnaire (GEQ) (Carron, Widmeyer, & Brawley, 1985). Results indicated that the participants of the National Service Training Programme underwent group cohesion change during the Physical Module activities (adventure based activities) that were carried out at the camp. The changes were observable based on the statistically analyzed data during the pre and post-test.

Sports and recreation activities are always exposed to various safety issues before, during and after activities. Positive practices could avoid the occurrence of accidents that caused injuries to the participants. Risk management practices are the most important element in the organization or management of sports and recreation activities. This element is significant in increasing the wellbeing of a society where a safe and healthy population can be developed. Each activity that was about to be organized and the facilities provided must be free and safe from incidents that could cause injuries either direct or indirectly. The development in sports and recreation activities need the involvement of knowledgeable, skilled and qualified personnel in order to offer various products and services to the society. The products and services offered could develop a competitive and precise economy to the nation. Sports and recreation activities as well as others could offer new business prospects, services and latest products. The objective of this article was to look into and explain how risk management practices through sports and recreation activities could help assure and secure the quality and wellbeing of a society.

White water kayaking is the fun sport on fast moving water, typically call white water river. The element of fun and challenge has attracted many people to join this adventure sports in Malaysia. This study examined the risk in adventure sport tourism by white water kayakers in Malaysia. The objective of this study is to reveal the injuries suffered by whitewater kayakers during activity. This 2013 survey will be described using descriptive data only. The survey forms were distributed via kayak clubs and associations under the auspices of the Malaysian Canoe Association (MASCA). The survey asked respondents about their previous injuries during white water kayaking activities. All the data concerning to age, sex, experience and ability was collected from them. A total of 217 respondents provided feedback on this survey. Of the total 217, about 186 respondents experienced injuries during an activity, while the rest did not suffer any injuries while they were kayaking. The result showed only 41% seeks medical attention after injury. These whitewater kayaking activities require physical exertion as well as emotional and mental stability. Good practise and skill can help kayakers avoid injuries and accident during paddling session. This sport has been developing and growing each year. Future studies can also be done by looking for new discipline in white water which is “playboating” which may find different risk and injury.

Journal of Building Construction and Planning Research (JBCPR) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/jbcpr.2015.33013
Abstract: A powerful non-destructive testing (NDT) technique is adopted to study the quality of RHA brick-1 and RHA brick-2. In that case, rice husk ash has been utilized for the preparation of bricks in full replacement of clay. In these studies, homogeneity of elemental distribution, water absorption and size and shape of the pores have been observed. From the studies, it was observed that elemental distribution is very good at various level, large number of porosity is presented with little bit size, initial rate of absorption (IRA) due to first five minutes immersion of water is higher compared to other immersion time (>5 minute), incremental water intrusion area increases very slowly with the increasing immersion time and the water absorption for RHA brick-2 becomes saturated very early than that of the RHA brick-1.

Open Journal of Antennas and Propagation (OJAPr) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/ojapr.2018.61001
Currently, communication system requires multiband small antennas for 5G mobile applications. Driven this motivation, this paper proposes a multiband patch antenna for Wi-Fi, WiMAX and 5G applications. The proposed antenna can effectively operate at 2.4 GHz as Wi-Fi, 7.8 GHz as WiMAX and 33.5 GHz as 5G communication purposes. The proposed antenna arrays have given directional radiation patterns, very small voltage standing wave ratio, high gain (VSWR) and directivity for each aforementioned systems operating frequency. This antenna is made for multiband purpose which can be effective for not only Wi-Fi and WiMAX but also 5G applications.

Abstract: The overload content on Internet, has a direct connection with cyberspace particularly UGC. The space, the content, the creator, and the user are the complete component of cyberspace. The existence of cyberspace and its growing contents is real and overwhelming, where the creator roles is becoming demanding, and user opportunities are growing high. Visual as one of the properties of cyber contents is increasingly becoming more significant and popular amongst creator and user. Visual with aesthetic power could impress, influence, and favor biasness amongst the user. The content creator who knows how to manipulate this visuals and aesthetic expression can dominate the scenario and user who is ‘expressive literate’ will gain much from the scenes. User who understands visual aesthetic will be rewarded with competence, confidence, and certainly, a personality enhanced experience in carrying task when participating in this chaotic but promising cyber world. This article with the support of public-opinion polls and discussion forums explains the complete component of cyberspace, revealing some possible cognitive meanings, and emotional values behind it existence, it roles, and the opportunities offered by visual aesthetic.This is a space of opportunities where the ideal is - not ‘what you want’, but ‘how you want it to benefits you’.
Experimental Study of Discharge Characteristics in a Compound Meandering River
Md. Abdullah Al Amin
American Journal of Engineering Research , 2013,
Abstract: Most of the river flow in the world can be characterized as compound meandering channel in which the discharge distributions are very intricate. Now-a-days engineers, planners as well as researchers are highly interested in predicting precisely and reliably the quantitative estimates of discharge in a compound meandering river. A Laboratory experiment has been performed in a compound meandering channel with symmetric cross-sections having floodplain width ratio of 1, 1.67, 2.33, 3 and depth ratio of 0.20, 0.30, 0.35, 0.40 using the large-scale open air facility in the Department of Water Resources Engineering, Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET), Dhaka. Point velocity data have been collected using an ADV (Acoustic Doppler Velocity Meter) for different depth and width ratio at different locations of a compound meandering channel. Cross-sectional discharge is computed by area velocity method from observed velocity profile. The laboratory experiment shows that the discharge always increases with the increase of depth ratio for all the above mentioned cases. At low depth ratio, discharge decreases with the increase of width ratio but for higher depth ratio, discharge increases with the increase of width ratio.
Multi-core: Adding a New Dimension to Computing
Md. Tanvir Al Amin
Computer Science , 2010,
Abstract: Invention of Transistors in 1948 started a new era in technology, called Solid State Electronics. Since then, sustaining development and advancement in electronics and fabrication techniques has caused the devices to shrink in size and become smaller, paving the quest for increasing density and clock speed. That quest has suddenly come to a halt due to fundamental bounds applied by physical laws. But, demand for more and more computational power is still prevalent in the computing world. As a result, the microprocessor industry has started exploring the technology along a different dimension. Speed of a single work unit (CPU) is no longer the concern, rather increasing the number of independent processor cores packed in a single package has become the new concern. Such processors are commonly known as multi-core processors. Scaling the performance by using multiple cores has gained so much attention from the academia and the industry, that not only desktops, but also laptops, PDAs, cell phones and even embedded devices today contain these processors. In this paper, we explore state of the art technologies for multi-core processors and existing software tools to support parallelism. We also discuss present and future trend of research in this field. From our survey, we conclude that next few decades are going to be marked by the success of this "Ubiquitous parallel processing".
