Abstract: Cases involving partial deletions or duplications of chromosome 18 are well documented in the literature. The 18q- syndrome constitutes one of the frequent autosomal deletion syndromes in man, with more than 100 patients reported [1]. The syndrome includes moderate intrauterine growth retardation, moderate mental retardation, and a specific pattern of dysmorphisms and anomalies [1]. Mosaicism for a deleted chromosome 18 has been described in a few patients with mostly the full clinical picture of the 18q- syndrome. Here, we report a patient with an unusual mosaic karyotype consisting of cells with normal karyotype and others with a terminal deletion of one chromosome 18 and the other chromosome 18 having an interstitial duplication.The patient, a 7-year-old boy, was the second child of unrelated, healthy parents. He was born with cesarean section after a full term pregnancy. His birth weight was 2,850 kg, length 45 cm and head circumference (HC) 32 cm. His perinatal period was uneventful. His developmental milestones were delayed as he sat independently at the age of 13 months and walked at the age of 27 months. His first words were spoken at the age of 2 years and 5 months.He was a sociable child, with microcephaly (HC = 50.5 cm, 2nd percentile), and dysmorphic facial features such as: maxillary hypoplasia, epicanthal folds, upslanting palpebral fissures, long eyelashes, and hypertelorism. His ears were prominent and dysmorphic and he had a high arched palate. His weight was 17 kg (25th percentile) and his height 120 cm (50th percentile).His non-verbal skills were equivalent to a 4 years and 4 months level and his language skills were equivalent to a 30 months level. According to Griffiths Scales Bailey's Scales of Mental Development (2nd Edition), his General Developmental Quotient (GDQ) was 52 with Performance DQ = 59 and Language DQ = 45. His behavior was normal for his developmental age. He was severely hypertonic but without asymmetry.Heart auscultation was no

Nazri Muslim,Rozita Ibrahim
The Social Sciences , 2013, DOI: 10.3923/sscience.2012.568.574
Abstract: Ethnicity refers essentially to the socio-cultural characteristics of a person. Ethnicity is characterized by one s culture, language, religion, national origin and others. Thus, an ethnic group comprises of members who have a set of socio-cultural characteristics of their own. They have the same cultural practices and share similar historical background, value systems, attitude and behaviour. In Malaysia, there are three major ethnic groups, namely the Malays, Chinese and Indians. In the Malaysian context, ethnicity is also an important aspect in the identification of one s religion as well as giving a clue of their affiliated political parties. The interplay between these various factors associated to ethnicity provides an interesting background to the study of Malaysian history and development. In this study, the researchers discuss the development of Malaysian higher education from an ethnic relations perspective. The study is based on the review of relevant literature and documents related to the history and development of higher education in Malaysia and its connections to ethnic integration towards nation building. This research discusses the various phases in the development of Malaysian higher education from the colonial times to the current globalisation era. The research highlights the efforts taken by the government in promoting and maintaining ethnic integration through education at the tertiary level.

Abstract: In the emerging competitive and technological driven banking era, banks have to strive hard for retaining and enlarging their customer base. Electronic customer relationship management (E-CRM) is the combination of traditional CRM with the e-business applications marketplace. An E-CRM system provides financial institutions with the opportunity to establish individual and need oriented customer relationships. E-CRM enables the financial institutions to provide the right financial product at the right time (Sascha, 2003). Focus of this paper is to explore E-CRM benefits that have positively effects on customer satisfaction and association between them in Iran Financial Institutions. The findings indicates that Proliferation of channels (e.g. Internet), Up to date of banks, Services quality, International customers’ satisfaction, Improve cash flow management, Safety and Transaction security have positive effects on customer satisfaction. Furthermore, it seems that there is significant association between Quality factor and Safety factor and also between Infrastructure improvement and Customer responsiveness.

Saudi Journal of Kidney Diseases and Transplantation , 2011,
Abstract: To determine the antihypertensive benefit of adding low dose sprinolactone to multi-drug regimens that included a diuretic, a calcium channel blocker and angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor or angiotensin receptor blocker in patients with moderately severe chronic kidney disease (CKD) [glomerular filtration rate (GFR) 25-50 mL/min] and resistant hyper-tension, we studied 41 patients randomly divided into two groups: group 1: patients who received placebo as spironolactone and group 2: patients who received spironolactone 25-50 mg/day. The patients were evaluated during follow-up at the 6th and 12th weeks. The mean decrease in systolic and diastolic blood pressure after 6 weeks of spironolactone was 33 ± 8 and 13 ± 2 mmHg, respectively, and it was maintained after 12 weeks of spironolactone wherein the values were 36 ± 10 and 12 ± 2 mmHg, respectively, while there was no change in the blood pressure in the control group. Hyperkalemia (serum potassium >5.5 meq/L) occurred in one subject in the spironolactone group. We conclude that low-dose spironolactone may provide a significant additive blood pressure reduction in CKD patients (stage 2 and 3) with resistant hypertension.

Abstract: A new modified palm shell activated carbon paste electrode based on 1,13-Bis(8-quinolyl)-1,4,7,10,13-pentaoxat-ride-cane ,8,8-(1,4,7,10,13-Pentaoxatridecylene)-diquinoline (Kryptofix?5) and plasticizing agent was prepared and studied as Hg2+ selective electrode. The best performance was observed with the electrode composition having the iono-phore-palm shell activated carbon-plasticizer composition 10%:50%:40% with Nernstian response over the concentration range of 1.0 × 10–8 - 1.0 × 10–2 M with a slope of 42 ± 1.5 mV per decade of concentration. The detection limit as determined from the calibration plot is 1.0 × 10–7 M. The proposed electrode shows good selectivity for Hg(II) with interfering ions. The response time of the electrode is fast (≤10 s), and can be used in the pH range of 3 - 11. The electrode was used to determine mercury in drinking water.

Abstract: This is an experimental study conducted on two groups of control and experimental using pretestposttest design, applying psychological intervention on the study sample. The present study aimed to determine the effectiveness of collective education life skills on mental health and resilience of teachers in Zahedan. The population of the study included all teachers at schools with normal students and teachers at schools with exceptional students in Zahedan, among which 60 teachers at normal schools and 20 teachers at exceptional schools were selected and placed in two groups of experimental and control, respectively. Initially, members of the experimental group were taught 10 basic life skills in 10 2-hour sessions. Mental health and resilience questionnaires were distributed and gathered before and after the training sessions. Results indicated the positive effect of life skills training on mental health of teachers at schools with normal students and teachers at schools with exceptional students, which meant that the more the life skills training to teachers at schools with normal students and teachers at schools with exceptional students, the lower their mental health scores would be. Results also indicated the positive effect of life skills training on resilience of teachers at schools with normal students and teachers at schools with exceptional students, which meant that the more the life skills training to teachers at schools with normal students and teachers at schools with exceptional students, the higher their resilience scores would be.

Abstract: Epidemic incidence of obesity has become one of the public health priorities in disease control prevention. The study aims to determine the prevalence of readiness stages to lose weight among the overweight and obese adolescents and its influencing factors. A cross-sectional study was conducted on 631 adolescents of body mass index for age with z-score > 1 SD based on World Health Organization growth reference chart. The stages of readiness to lose weight were assessed using Trans-Theoretical Model. Intrinsic and extrinsic factors were collected using self-administered questionnaire. Majority of the respondents were in the action stage (40.3%) followed by contemplation (26.5%), preparation (15.5%), maintenance (11.4%) and pre-contemplation (6.3%). Ordinal regression analysis identified significant factors influencing progression across the stages of readiness to lose weight: no junk foods sold in school canteens (p = 0.005), TV viewing time ≤2 hours (p = 0.001), high physical activity means score (p < 0.001) and family encouragement on healthy eating (p = 0.010). Majority of adolescents who were overweight and obese were at the action stage of weight reduction. Focusing on extrinsic factors help to improve the effectiveness of weight management intervention.

Abstract: The purpose of this study, as an applied study, was to investigate the role of parents’ incarnated cultural capital on their children’s studying habits. To do so, the design of the study was chosen to be a survey study. The population of the current study were 1200 parents of the primary school students living in Tehran zone one. Due to the limitation of the study, the Cochran formula was used and 291 individuals were selected. In this study, random-cluster sampling was used and the questionnaire was distributed among the participants. To collect theoretical information, different sources such as the related books and articles were used. To collect information for the matter of the research hypotheses, a questionnaire was used. In the descriptive statistics, first, the necessary indexes were obtained, and then, the reliability and validity of the questionnaire were computed. Moreover, to see the normalization of the data, Kolmogorov-Smirnov was used. Then after, to test the hypotheses, Pearson coefficient, and regression on SPSS have been used. Based on the obtained in-formation, all of the hypotheses were supported and incarnated cultural capital of the parents and its different aspects had positive effects of the studying habit of the children.
