Abstract: to evaluate the association between cardiovascular risk factors (cvrf) during postmenopausal years and previous menstrual irregularity during reproductive years, we performed a case-control study in 414 postmenopausal women (mean age 60.4 ± 5.5 years; bmi 25.3 ± 4.7 kg/m2). the variables assessed were: menstrual cycle characteristics at age 20-35y (independent) and records of arterial hypertension, dyslipidemia, diabetes mellitus, and coronary heart disease (dependent). statistical analysis used the chi-square test and logistic regression, adjusting for potential confounders for cardiovascular risk, with significance set at 5%. women reporting previous menstrual irregularity were associated with increased risk for some cvrf [adjusted odds ratio (or) 2.14; ci-95%= 1.02-4.48], when compared with those reporting regular menstrual cycles. stratified analysis demonstrated significant associations of previous menstrual irregularity with: arterial hypertension [or= 2.74; ci-95%= 1.39-5.41), hypercholesterolemia (or= 2.32; ci-95%= 1.17-4.59), hypertriglyceridemia (or= 2.09; ci-95%=1.10-4.33), and coronary angioplasty (or= 6.82; ci-95%= 1.44-32.18). these data suggest that a prior history of menstrual irregularity, as indicative of polycystic ovary syndrome, may be related to increased risk for cvd during postmenopausal years.

M.O. Aremu,O. Olaofe,E.T. Akintayo
Journal of Food Technology , 2013,
Abstract: Functional properties of two varieties of Bambara Groundnut Flours (BBG* and BBGF*) Kerstring’s Groundnut Flour (KSGF), two varieties of Rear Cowpea Flour (RCPF* and RCPF*) and Scarlet Runner Beans Flour (SRBF) were determined. Effects of flour concentration on foaming and gelation properties were also investigated. The results showed that the functional properties of the varieties of legume seed flours ranged as follows: Foaming Capacity (FC) 7.9±0.5-15.5±1.2%; Foaming Stability (FS), 87.7±1.5-98.4±2.3%; Water absorption capacity (WAC), 200.0±1.0-240.5±2.3%; Oil Absorption Capacity (OAC), 127.8±4.0-172.3±1.0%; Emulsion Capacity (EC), 50.0±2.0-95.0±1.0mgL–1; Emulsion Stability (ES), 13.0 0.00-43.5 1.0mLg–1; Least Gelation Concentration (LGC), 12.0 0.0-16.0 0.0% w/v; Bulk Density (BD), 531.2 0.1-586.8 0.5gL–1. The protein solubility studies of the flours were found to have minimum solubility at pH range of 4.2-5.5 which correspond to iso-electric point while only SRBF showed minimum solubility of two different PH of 5.0 and 9.2 indicating that two different isolates might be recovered from the sample. FC and FS of the flours increased as the concentration of flour solution increased. There was improvement in LGC with the increase in flour concentration.

Abstract: The aim of the article. The main purpose of this paper is to analyze the reasons for the lack of creative thinking among specialists, possible ways of its development, using one integrated methodology rather than many currently existing approaches.The results of the analysis. The authors investigated existing creativity development methods of staff and made an integrated plan, adapted to the specifics of Ukrainian enterprises. Three steps to stimulate creativity are proposed.First stage. Organization`s development evaluation. It is necessary for understanding what the workers do in the company, the opportunity to develop creativity, what leadership style is in this organization today. Thus, the characteristics of the company can determine which of the six types of companies through the spiral dynamics it belongs.Second stage. Appropriate atmosphere creating. When you know what is happening in the company, you can begin the change. It is known that you need a special atmosphere for ideas appearing. Creative director assumes the creation of such atmosphere and its support. There are six factors that contribute to the creative atmosphere in the company.Third stage. Work motivation. Creative relation to certain activities consists of three elements: competence, ability and flexibility to non-standard thinking. Manager can influence first two components, but this is the way of great investments and much time. Measures aimed at increasing internal motivation provide greater effect. For it manager has four levels: 1) tasks complexity;2) freedom degree; 3) group work; 4) level of incentives and the way of organizational support.In this study the authors found that for development and promotion of creative thinking among staff, a manager has to give them freedom to act, to stimulate their work by clarifying the ultimate goal and the importance of its implementation. He should encourage the formation of creative solutions. Creative manager should:create an atmosphere of openness and collaboration, in which subordinates can stimulate each other through better awareness;stimulate with material instruments;take into account individual differences, providing depth assessment of the unique traits of each individual, its strengths and weaknesses;provide people with stimulating work, which evokes a sense of personal and professional growth;ensure subordinates by projects and tasks that cause feelings of fullness and completeness.Conclusions and directions of further researches.Thus, managers can encourage creativity of their subordinates using various methods.

Journal of Applied Sciences , 2006,
Abstract: Proximate, mineral composition and physicochemical characteristics of two varieties of bambara groundnut (Vigna subterranean) flours were determined using standard techniques. The two varieties (cream coat and dark red coat) of bambara groundnut have comparable mean values of total ash, crude protein and carbohydrate. (by difference) of 4.28 and 3.89%; 11.56 and 11.05% and 73.30 and 73.87%, respectively. But there are little variations in the values of moisture, crude fat and crude fibre. The two varieties were found to be good sources of essential minerals such as Fe, Na, K, Mg and Ca but Cu, Mn and Zn contents were low. Pb, Cd and Cr were not detectable. The results of physicochemical characteristics of bambara groundnut oils showed that they have similar mean values of the following parameters: Free fatty acid.85 and 4.80 mg g-1; Acid value, 0.92 and 0.98; Saponification value24.9 and 140.5 mg KOH g-1; Iodine value21 and 120 mg iodine g-1; peroxide value86 and 290 and specific gravity 0.88 and 0.85 for cream coat and dark red coat, respectively indicating that they are drying oils and edible.

T.U. Nwabueze,M.O. Iwe
Journal of Food Technology , 2013,
Abstract: Blends of African breadfruit (Treculia africana), defatted soybean and corn were extrusion cooked in a Brabender laboratory single screw extruder (DCE 330, NJ). Effects of extrusion and process variables on extrudate nutrient composition, mass flow rate, expansion ratio and bulk density, were investigated. Extrusion cooking resulted in significant (p 0.05) changes in moisture, fat, crude fibre and energy values but not in crude protein and carbohydrate. Mass flow rate ranged from 2.99 kg h 1 to 6.72 kg h 1 as feed composition shifted from African breadfruit towards soybean . Similar o bservation was made for bulk density from 0.62 g mL 1 at the centre point to 0.65 g mL 1 at the lower corner point and 0.59g mL 1 at the lower star point. A reverse effect of feed composition was observed in product expansion ratio. It ranged from 1.85 at the centre to 1.64 and 2.36 at lower corner and star point formulations, respectively. Regression analysis indicated that screw speed and feed composition were the only process variables showing significant (p 0.1) quadratic influence on mass flow rate and expansion ratio respectively. They also showed significant (p 0.05) linear and cross product effects on bulk density. All the process variables had significant (p 0.05) quadratic effect on bulk density.

M.T. Rahman,M.T. Islam,M.O. Islam
Pakistan Journal of Biological Sciences , 2002,
Abstract: A pot experiment with four transplanted aman rice varieties was carried out at the Bangladesh Institute of Nuclear Agriculture, Mymensingh during aman season, 2000 to find rice cultivar, which can be used as developing suitable variety for drought affected areas of Bangladesh. Moisture stress (30% FC) was maintained during booting, flowering and grain filling stage and 100% FC in the control plants. Plant height, tiller number, panicle number, panicle length, number of filled grains per panicle, 1000-grain weight, harvest index (HI), total dry matter (TDM) and yield were decreased with stress. However, varieties response was different for most of the characters and they had different degree of reduction. Among the four varieties, Binadhan4 produced highest yield, more tillers and panicles per plant, highest 1000-grain weight and medium TDM and HI under water stress condition. Shorna showed better yield but the highest TDM and medium HI. Brridhan33 showed medium yield and TDM but the highest 1000-grain weight and HI. Binashail showed the highest TDM and plant height. But it produced lower grain yield under stress condition. Binadhan4 and Binashail may be used as developing suitable varieties for drought -affected areas of Bangladesh.
