Khalid Al Saleh, Mohamed Ramadan
iBusiness (IB) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/ib.2011.32027
Abstract: This research investigated the effect of adjustable Saudi chair-table combinations available in the local market on the students' health and safety. Thirty seven young students participated in this research. Ten chair-table combinations, within three different activities (reading, writing, and looking at the blackboard), were the independent variables. Normalized discomfort ratings, and neck dorsal and upper trapezius muscular activities were the dependent variables. Variances among students' body dimensions and classroom furniture were also studied. There were higher levels of neck dorsal and upper trapezius muscular contractions associated with less dimensions of chair-table combinations compared to high dimensions of chair-table combinations. Normalized discomfort ratings at the neck, shoulder, thigh, and feet were significantly higher at high chair-table dimensions. Matched school furniture to the student dimensions was associated with low dimensions of chair-table combinations. The suitability of the local adjustable chair-table combination was not fit to the students’ health. Saudi furniture industry should review and provide the local schools with the most appropriate furniture to Saudi students’ anthropometric dimensions.

Abstract: Work has severaldefinitions. However it is defined as an activity that is to perform a specifictask in a given environment social, organizational and production in a given time and for compensation. The first component of work is the physical environment in which it takes place. In this set are distinguished on one hand the atmosphere and the other hand factors of production. To qualitatively assess work, it’s determined by its performance. The stress is positive because of the finished product, marketing, margins and earnings. This means that the leaders of the industry manage well the micro and macroeconomics; shareholders ensure financial and strategic activity that bankers give the best loans and credits (heritage, Finance, strategy), that references to grant the delivery inputs of guarantee (economics, Finance, strategy) conditions take account of sociability, liquidity, sector risk, strength of the business, its future and the competence of its leaders. The stress is negative in an industry if it has increased internal and international competition; the emergence of substitute products; the loss of an important client or his bankruptcy; the bankruptcy of a bank with which the industry had preferred financial relations; the emergence of new regulations concerning safety and the protection of the environment in which the industry did not; the decline continues to the listing on the stock exchange; the rotation of stocks and different clients of the industry standard; the financing of investments by operation of repeated losses of operating resources; the impossibility of renewal of credit stress is a reaction to physical or psychological constraints. It can highlight different sources of occupational stress investments sources at work (working conditions, urgency of the time etc.). Ambiguities and overload conflicts of roles of responsibilities (several suicide in French companies); career too or no promotion, lack of job security, ambition thwarted, difficult professional relationship with supervisor, colleagues, subordinates, difficulties of delegation of authority, organizational climate: no or limited participation in the process of decisions, restrictions on the power of decisions (budget), family and personal life can also be a source of stress.

Abstract: One of the most important useful and widely abundant industrial minerals in the world is the clay minerals. Their applications in various industries are dependent on their properties. In this study, the mineralogical and physico-chemical properties of RahinSho (RC), Major Porter (MP), Wereng camp (WC), Kwi (KC) and Naraguta (NC) clay deposits in Plateau State, Nigeria were investigated to evaluate their potentials for some industrial uses. The x-ray diffraction studies revealed the kaolins as the dominant clay minerals in all the samples. The non-clay minerals found were quartz and muscovite. The chemical analyses by x-ray fluorescence also indicated that the silica (SiO2) values of the samples ranged from (41.20 - 62.26)% while the alumina (Al2O3) range was (17.25 - 37.15)%. Some considerable amounts of impurities found were Fe2O3 (0.43 - 27.52)%, TiO2 (0.05 - 3.28)%, K2O (0.13 - 3.01)%. The oxides of Na, Ca and Mg were within acceptable limits in the clays for most purposes. The loss on ignition ranged from 4.30% - 12.43%. The physical properties investigated were particle size distribution that contained heavy clay-size materials ranging from 67.88% - 91.88%, plasticity index had range of values from 15.90% - 33.68%, and drying and firing shrinkages were 1.10% - 2.22% and 1.65% - 4.49% respectively. All the samples attained a temperature of 1500°C without fusion except Naraguta clay that fused at 1300°C. At the temperature of 1200°C, RC, MP and WC clays retained their natural colours of white and near-white respectively, while KC and NC clays changed colours from orange pink and light brown to moderate pink and moderate reddish brown respectively. These results compare very well with several clays elsewhere. Based on these characteristics, the clays were observed to be potentially suitable for the production of paints, tiles, ceramics, refractories, sanitary wares and clay bricks. Minimal processing will increase the potential of RC and MP to meet up with specification for paper, fertilizer and/or pharmaceutical uses.

Abstract: The development of unconventional gas exploration in the USA, in particular shale gas, caused a revolution in the American and the global gas markets. The regional-wide use of unconventional gas resources could stabilize the natural gas demand and the energy supply security of European and Asian countries. But traditionally, almost all gas contracts in Europe and Asia are linked to oil because of the demand for stable, long-term contracts. Furthermore, in many Asian countries, large state-owned enterprises dominate their national gas markets, leading to little competition and incentives to reduce gas prices. In Europe, the expansion of unconventional gas is facing grassroots opposition from environmental groups who are concerned about ground water safety, adequate waste water management, seismic events and greenhouse gas emissions. In this article, I will discuss the rapidly changing natural gas markets and the role and prospects of unconventional gas as well as its environmental impacts and unsustainability in industry level.

Abstract: In this study, eleven soil samples and twenty-twoplants samples were collected in the vicinity of eleven industries and a thermal station was analyzed for zinc, copper, iron, lead and cadmium. Soil sample from Egbin thermal station had the highest concentration of Zn (141.06 mg/kg) and Cu (131.70 mg/kg). Soil from international textile had the highest level of Fe and the soil from Ni-chemtex had the highest concentration Pb and Cd was the highest in soil from Guinness (28.91 mg/kg, 59.80 mg/kg and 1.72 mg/kg respectively). The highest concentrations of the heavy metals were observed from different plants species. Analyses of variance (p < 0.05) showed that heavy metal variation in plant and soil samples were not significant (p > 0.5). There were positive correlations between the heavy metals in the soils and the plant samples indicated that the plants obtained the heavy metals from the soil. Plants having BCF values less than one had limited ability to accumulate, translocate and phytoextract heavy metals. These plants in this study with higher Bioconcentration Factor value especially those greater than one (Croton lobatus, Borreria sp., Cy-athula prostrata, Lantana camara, Ficus sp., Mimosa pudica, Eclipta prostrata, Commelina sp. etc.) were suggested for further research and assessment on their bioaccumulation abilities and phy-toremediation potential.

Abstract: This work deals with the efficient management of industrial liquid discharges from soap factories (ILDS) in the region of Abidjan. The aim of this work is to evaluate the physico-chemical quality of these discharges as well as the different types of pollution generated. Seventeen (17) industrial soap sources were studied through fourteen (14) global pollution parameters (T, pH, electrical conductivity EC, redox potential EH, suspended matter SM, COD, BOD5, biodegradability factor BF, \"\", \"\", \"\", \"\", total iron and \"\"). A liquid waste collection campaign was done during six weeks from February to March 2016, corresponding to a period of intensive activity of these industries. The samples were analyzed according to the norms of the French Standardization Agency (AFNOR). Results were compared with the Ivorian guide values recommended by the Classified Installations Inspection Service (CIIS). Principal Component Analysis (PCA) is allowed to evaluate the pollution induced by these factories’ rejection. In addition, Ascending Hierarchical Classification (AHC) method leads to classify soap factories into three groups according to the physico-chemical quality of their releases. Moreover, the estimation of the biodegradability factor is permitted to know the state of the biodegradability of these effluents.

Abstract: Constructed the empirical model for the study of the differences of the operational efficiency of furniture enterprises in Guangdong province, evaluated the technical efficiency, pure technical efficiency and scale efficiency of these furniture enterprises with DEA and took pure technical efficiency and scale efficiency as variables for cluster analysis. According to the results, we divided furniture enterprises into four types: inefficient management, efficient management, invalid management and invalid size. Then, the connotation, characteristics and the improvement of different types were discussed. Studies have shown that the reasons for the inefficiency lie in the allocation of resources, improving the existing resource input and output portfolio and effectively controlling the waste of resources are the crucial solution.
