Abstract: Brucellosis is a zoonosis found throughout the world with major implications both in the field of public health and farming economy. It is most often caused by Brucella abortus and Brucella melitensis. This study aimed for evaluation of the sensitivity and specificity of immunochromatographic assay (ICA) and comparing the results with those obtained from Rose Bengal Plate Test (RBPT) and in direct Enzyme Linked Immunsorbent Assay (ELISA) for serodiagnosis of sheep and goat brucellosis. Out of 41 sera samples (21 ram and 20 male goats) which were examined, antibodies against Brucella were detected in ram 8 (38.09%), 6 (28.57%) and 16 (76.19%) in ram samples, whereas they were detected in 3 (15%), 1 (5%) and 12 (60%) serum sample of goats males by RBPT, (ICA) and iELISA respectively. The kappa value between iELISA and ICA was -0.08 and that between RBPT and ELISA was -0.01 in ram and the kappa value between iELISA and ICA was -0.06 and that between RBPT and ELISA was -0.14 in male goats. The sensitivity for RBPT and ICA were 37.5% and 25% while specificity was 60% and 60% in ram; whereas, in male goats, sensitivity for RBPT was 8.33% and ICA was 8.33% while specificity was 75% and 100% respectively. It can be concluded that the developed ICA is immunodiagnostic assay, and it is rapid, non-expensive, economical and suitable for large-scale screening in developing countries and rural areas.

Abstract: There is a tremendous growth of digital data due to the stunning progress of digital devices which facilitates capturing them. Digital data include image, text, and video. Video represents a rich source of information. Thus, there is an urgent need to retrieve, organize, and automate videos. Video retrieval is a vital process in multimedia applications such as video search engines, digital museums, and video-on-demand broadcasting. In this paper, the different approaches of video retrieval are outlined and briefly categorized. Moreover, the different methods that bridge the semantic gap in video retrieval are discussed in more details.
Assessment of Physicians’ Knowledge, Attitude and Practices of Radiation Safety at Suez Canal University Hospital, Egypt  [PDF]

Open Journal of Radiology (OJRad) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ojrad.2015.54034
Abstract: Doctors who request imaging must be well trained in deciding whether diagnostic imaging is indicated and have an accurate knowledge of the associated risks. Although radiological doses are low and the chance of late effect is minimal, it should be kept as low as reasonably achievable. This cannot be achieved without a proper knowledge and adherence to safe practices. This cross-sectional study investigates the level of physicians’ knowledge about radiation safety and their attitude towards radiation protection. A self-administered questionnaire, for radiation safety was sent to a purposive sample of 120 physicians at Suez Canal University Hospital. Eighty questionnaires were filled by participants (response rate; 66.7%). The sample included 22 radiologists, 15 oncologists, 25 surgeons and 18 orthopedists. Most participants did not receive any radiation safety-related training (88.8%). Radiologists and oncologists were exposed to ionizing radiation more frequently; however, their knowledge was as low as that of other physicians. The overall knowledge score ranged from 40% - 60% (mean; 56.5 ± 15.2), with a low score among surgeons and orthopedics. The most deficient knowledge was in the dose of background radiation and the radiation dose received by patients in each type of radiation procedure. Adherence to safe radiation practices was violated by most of participants, especially surgeons and orthopedics, but they attributed it to the poor applicability of the protective measures during performing the procedures. This study concluded that physicians at the Suez Canal University Hospital had deficient knowledge, unsafe practices and negative attitude towards radiation safety policies & precautions.
Compact Bandstop Filters with Extended Upper Passbands
Majeed A. S. Alkanhal
Active and Passive Electronic Components , 2008, DOI: 10.1155/2008/356049
Abstract: This paper presents new compact bandstop filters (BSFs) with extended upper passbands. In the basic proposed filter configuration, the conventional quarter-wavelength open-stub resonators are replaced with equivalent two-section stepped impedance resonators. Transmission line analysis is used to determine the dimensions of the equivalent stepped impedance sections. The filter structure is analyzed using a full wave electromagnetic (EM) simulator and then realized at 2.3 GHz band. Experiments have also been done to validate the performance of the design concept. Compared with the conventional quarter-wavelength-based bandstop filter, significant extensions of the upper passband beyond 9 GHz and 40% size reduction are achieved. Two other variations of the proposed basic BSF with further size reduction (more than 60%) are implemented and their measured performances are verified.

PIER , 2009, DOI: 10.2528/PIER09050407
Abstract: Two new triple band small size composite-resonator microstrip antenna configurations for wireless communications are presented in this paper. The proposed antennas, each is built of three resonant elements. Two types of compact short-circuited resonators are used; stepped impedance and quarter-wave resonators. The design procedure based on composing the antenna resonators is straightforward and can be applied to design any triple band antenna at three pre-specified bands using simple relations and design curves. The resonator integration has been performed to maintain single feed, reduce the overall antenna size, and preserve the quality-performance at each band. The two designed antennas are simulated, optimized, and realized on RT-Duroid substrate to verify the concept. Simulation and experimental results are in good agreement and demonstrate the performance of both triple band compact antennas.

Effect of Specimen Size on Compressive, Modulus of Rupture and Splitting Strength of Cement Mortar
Sura A. Majeed
Journal of Applied Sciences , 2011,
Abstract: It is well known that the strength of any tested matrix materials like concrete or mortar is affected by the specimen size; therefore it is important to consider the effect of specimen size when estimating the ultimate strength of such materials. This study presents the effect of specimen size on the mechanical properties of cement mortar. These include the compressive, splitting strength and modulus of rupture. For the compressive strength three different sizes of cylinder and three sizes of cubes are used and the same sample sizes are used for testing the splitting strength. Also three different sizes of specimen are used for modulus of rupture. Preparation, casting and testing procedures are carried out according to ASTM specifications using constant mix proportion of cement/sand and water cement ratio. The obtained results show that the three mechanical properties of mortar affected by the specimen size specially the compressive strength and splitting strength of cylinders. Some best fit relationships that relate these properties are presented in this study although it cannot be generalized due to the fact that the presented results are based on limited number of tested specimens with constant mix proportion.
Longitudinal and Transverse Form Factors from $^{12}$C
F. A. Majeed
Physics , 2007, DOI: 10.1088/0031-8949/76/4/009
Abstract: Electron scattering form factors from $^{12}$C have been studied in the framework of the particle-hole shell model. Higher configurations are taken into account by allowing particle-hole excitations from the 1$s$ and 1$p$ shells core orbits up to the 1$f-2p$ shell. The inclusion of the higher configurations modifies the form factors markedly and describes the experimental data very well in all momentum transfer regions.
The effect of core polarization on longitudinal form factors in $^{10}$B
Fouad A. Majeed
Physics , 2012, DOI: 10.1088/0031-8949/85/06/065201
Abstract: Electron scattering Coulomb form factors for the single-particle quadrupole transitions in $p$-shell $^{10}$B nucleus have been studied. Core polarization effects are included through a microscopic theory that includes excitations from the core orbits up to higher orbits with 2$\hbar$$\omega$ excitations. The modified surface delta interaction (MSDI) is employed as a residual interaction. The effect of core polarization is found essential in both the transition strengths and momentum transfer dependence of form factors, and gives a remarkably good agreement with the measured data with no adjustable parameters.
