Muhammad Sohail Khan, Zainab Bibi
International Journal of Geosciences (IJG) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/ijg.2016.78076
Abstract: This study pertains to the evaluation of shale gas and rock physics properties of this area with respect to its total organic content of Sember Formation, Khiproarea, Pakistan. We use well logs data for this study. The Khipro area is prominent in the Lower Indus Basin for its hydrocarbon (oil and gas) structural traps. In shale gas evaluation, TOC of Sember Formation is estimated. The analysis has been done with the help of the wire line data of the well Bilal North-01. The presence of shale gas in the study area is analyzed with the help of different techniques. Rock physics and petrophysical analysis have been done in order to get the properties of the area related to the shale gas evaluation.
Post-intervention assessment of long-lasting insecticide nets (LLINs) distributed in the Kano metropolis, Kano State, Nigeria  [PDF]
Gobir Zainab, Tukur Zainab
Advances in Entomology (AE) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ae.2013.12008
Abstract: Kano state has distributed about 4,137,464 Long Lasting Insecticide Nets (LLINs) in 2009 being one of the main malariavector control strategy developed by the Nigeria Federal Ministry of Health(FMOH) in line with Roll Back Malaria. The objective of the study was to evaluate the effectiveness of LLINs in use, the knowledge, attitude and practicesof some net users inthe Kano metropolis. A Cone bioassay with laboratory reared Anopheles was performed. Knock down after 60 minutes and mortality after 24 hours followed with a 3 minutes exposure were evaluated. A total of 210 households were administered with a structured questionnaire on two hundred and five (205) respondents (97.6%) indicated knowledge about LLINs while five (5) respondents (2.4%) were not aware. Very high and consistent knockdown and mortality in all 5 replicates were found. Respondent still holds some reservation on the use of LLINs, and one hundred and five respondents (54.8%) believed it causes heat. The respondents replied that they did not rely mostly on LLINs, despite their beliefs in the efficacy of it rather. 41.4% of the people that participated in the research still resorted to use of aerosols and 26.2% use smoke screens to prevent mosquito bites. It can be concluded from the findings that respondents were aware of long lasting insecticide net and agreed on its effectiveness against the vector of malaria parasite and other insects, with some having reservations on the use of smoke screens and indoor residual insecticide sprays to prevent mosquitobites. Considering that the nets are expected tobe effective for three years or more years, it is reasonable to conclude that the nets were effective in preventing mosquito bites based on the knock-down and exposure mortality results obtained during this study.

Evaluation of Onchocerciasis: A Decade of Post Treatment with Ivermectin in Zainabi and Ririwai Doguwa Local Government Area of Kano State  [PDF]
D. A. Sufi, Tukur Zainab
Advances in Entomology (AE) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ae.2015.31001
Abstract: Rapid Assessment Method (RAM) were carried out to assess the current situation of Onchocerciasis after repetition of annual community directed distribution of Ivermectin in Zainabi and Ririwai of Doguwa Local Government area of Kano State. Certain manifestations, like nodules, leopard skin and blindness, were used to measure the endemicity level in the community. The subjects of 30 - 50 years who are engaged in rural occupation, resident in that community, were examined for the presence of nodules, skin lesion and blindness. The common manifestation in both communities is nodules with 3 (3.40%) and 2 (3.44%). Leopard skin and blindness were found in Zainabi with 2 (2.27%) and 2 (2.27%). The manifestation of Onchocerciasis was found in older age groups of 49 - 70 and 50 - 69 respectively, which give an indication that the disease was eliminated in the community due to mass distribution of Ivermectin in the previously known endemic community. We recommend mass distribution of Mectizan in other identified endemic foci.

Zainab Zahedirad, Mohammad Reza Hoseini
Open Journal of Social Sciences (JSS) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/jss.2017.52016
Abstract: Violence against women in families is an annoying fact. The aim of this research is to investigate the relationship between family religiosity and the amount of violation against women among Yasuj educated families in year 2015. Research method in the ready essay is a kind of descriptive and non-experimental and is that of interrelation. Statistical population is all educated families who have passed at last 3 years of their married life in Yasuj. 335 educated women in Yasuj are selected as samples that have been certified by Morgan chart. Data were collected by using two questionnaires of home violation against women by Tabrizi and co-workers (2012) and visitational questionnaire by Glock and Stark. Finding results show inverse correlation between family religiosity and the violence reported inverse correlation between family religiosity and the violation reported by women. There was a positive and meaningful correlation among men education level, number of children, length of marriage, patriarch believes and violation against women in understudying sample.
Accreditation standards for medical imaging services
Zaidi Zainab
Indian Journal of Radiology and Imaging , 2010,
Abstract: The rapid changes in the healthcare system, with revolutionary advancements in imaging, along with the lack of any existing imaging standards in our country, have raised the need for an accreditation structure. The Quality Council of India (QCI) has therefore introduced standards for medical imaging services, focusing on the control of services, personnel, imaging processes and procedures, facility and environment, equipment, and documentation, as well as risk control and safety. This article deals briefly with the standards structured by the QCI for accreditation of imaging services.

Rotation Sets of Open Billiards

Mathematics , 2015,
Abstract: We investigate the rotation sets of open billiards in $\mathbb{R}^N$ for the natural observable related to a starting point of a given billiard trajectory. We prove that the general rotation set is convex and the set of all convex combinations of rotation vectors of periodic trajectory $P_\phi$ is dense in it. We provide a constructive proof which illustrates that the set $P_\phi$ is dense in the pointwise rotation set, and the closure of the pointwise rotation set is convex. We also consider a class of billiards consisting of three obstacles and construct a sequence in the symbol space such that its rotation vector is not defined.
Mio-Pliocene Faunal Exchanges and African Biogeography: The Record of Fossil Bovids
Faysal Bibi
PLOS ONE , 2012, DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0016688
Abstract: The development of the Ethiopian biogeographic realm since the late Miocene is here explored with the presentation and review of fossil evidence from eastern Africa. Prostrepsiceros cf. vinayaki and an unknown species of possible caprin affinity are described from the hominid-bearing Asa Koma and Kuseralee Members (~5.7 and ~5.2 Ma) of the Middle Awash, Ethiopia. The Middle Awash Prostrepsiceros cf. vinayaki constitutes the first record of this taxon from Africa, previously known from the Siwaliks and Arabia. The possible caprin joins a number of isolated records of caprin or caprin-like taxa recorded, but poorly understood, from the late Neogene of Africa. The identification of these two taxa from the Middle Awash prompts an overdue review of fossil bovids from the sub-Saharan African record that demonstrate Eurasian affinities, including the reduncin Kobus porrecticornis, and species of Tragoportax. The fossil bovid record provides evidence for greater biological continuity between Africa and Eurasia in the late Miocene and earliest Pliocene than is found later in time. In contrast, the early Pliocene (after 5 Ma) saw the loss of any significant proportions of Eurasian-related taxa, and the continental dominance of African-endemic taxa and lineages, a pattern that continues today.
Role of cytochrome P450 in drug interactions

Abstract: The cytochrome P450 (P450 or CYP) isoenzymes are a group of heme-containing enzymes embedded primarily in the lipid bilayer of the endoplasmic reticulum of hepatocytes, it takes part in the metabolism of many drugs, steroids and carcinogens [1]. The most intensively studied route of drug metabolism is the P450-catalysed mixed-function oxidation reaction which conforms to the following stoichiometrywhere, RH represents an oxidisable drug substrate and ROH is the hydroxylated metabolite, the overall reaction being catalysed by the enzyme P450. At the present time a number of CYP isoenzymes are expressed in each mammalian species including humans [2], many of these have specific role involving anabolic steroids and are localized in the liver. The present system of nomenclature for the various CYP isozymes employs a three-tiered classification based on the conventions of molecular biology: the family (members of the same family display > 40% homology in their amino acid sequences), subfamily (55% homology), and individual gene [3].This pedigree is indicated by, respectively, an Arabic numeral (family), a capital letter (subfamily) and another Arabic numeral (gene), e.g. CYP1A2. The enzymes transforming drugs in humans belong to the CYP families 1–4 and more than 30 human CYP isozymes have been identified to date. It has been estimated that 90% of human drug oxidation can be attributed to six main enzymes (CYP1A2, 2C9, 2C19, 2D6, 2E1 and 3A4/5). The activities of the CYP2C19 [4-7] and CYP2D6 [8-14] enzymes are biomedically distributed in the population, allowing classification of individuals as either extensive (EM) or poor metabolizers (PM). The concept that most drug oxidations are catalysed primarily by a small number of P450 enzymes is important in that the approaches to identifying drug-drug interactions are feasible, both in vivo and in vitro.More side-effects of drugs and drug-drug interactions are being reported, as highly effective drugs are developed and multip
An Error Controlled Method to Determine the Stellar Density Function in a Region of the Sky  [PDF]
Mohammed Adel Sharaf, Zainab Ahmed Mominkhan
Applied Mathematics (AM) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/am.2014.513202

In this paper, a reliable computational tool will be developed for the determination of the parameters of the stellar density function in a region of the sky with complete error controlled estimates. Of these error estimates are, the variance of the fit, the variance of the least squares solutions vector, the average square distance between the exact and the least-squares solutions, finally the variance of the density stellar function due to the variance of the least squares solutions vector. Moreover, all these estimates are given in closed analytical forms.
