Abstract: Intussusception is commonly discussed as a paediatric problem. A study of 34 cases is presented asencountered in a general surgical unit. Only 50% belonged to paediatric age group. M:F ratio is 2:1.50% had ileocaecal intussusception whereas 38% were of Ileoileal type. In isolated small bowelintussusception Meckel’s was responsible in 5 of 13 cases. 7 out of 34 cases had gangrene of gut. 2infants with ileo-caeco-colic intussusception were treated successfully with hydrostatic pressure usingbarium enema while another was found reduced at operation after the enema. All but two were explored.13 had simple operative reduction, 15 had resection anastomosis of gut whereas 4 had resectionexteriorization.

Abstract: A study of nine cases is presented who had previously undergone laparotomy but ended up having retainedforeign bodies. All nine were operated primarily elsewhere, four had emergency cesarian section, one hadintestinal surgery. The others had been operated for laminectomy, prostatectomy, herniorrhaphy and one hadan incision and drainage for injection abscess. Seven of them came back within six months of primary surgery,another presented months later with sub acute intestinal obstruction and one presented five years later withretention of urine. Four had complained of abdominal masses three had discharging sinuses one had sub acuteintestinal obstruction and another presented with vesical calculus. All were operated and recovery was uneventfulin all with no mortality.

Abstract: Nitrogen is a major nutrient involved in plant growth and yield. Plants cannot get the nutrients from the soil medium under water stress condition to testify foliar application in stress condition to fulfil plant need for better performance. In this regard, a field study was conducted to evaluate the effect of foliar-applied nitrogen (0, water and 1% urea) on sunflower (cv. Hysun-33) under normal and water stress at reproductive stage. Two soil applied nitrogen levels control (0 kg·ha-1) and recommended dose (115 kg·ha-1). Supplemental foliar application of nitrogen in the form of urea significantly increased the growth, yield and yield components of sunflower under water stress. The increase in yield with 1% urea spray was recorded up to 1.37 t·ha-1 in comparison to water spray (1.07 t·ha-1) and no spray (1.00 t·ha-1). While maximum values of all factors were obtained where 1% urea spray with soil applied nitrogen was used in both stresses as well as in non-stress condition. Therefore, reasonable yield can be achieved by applying foliar application of urea (1%) as a supplemental source to soil applied nitrogen under water stress.
Performance Evaluation to Enable Institutionalisation of Technology
Abrar Haider
Communications of the IBIMA , 2008,
Abstract: Technology implementation involves understanding of the structure of the technology, the reasons for choosing particular technology and its implementation approaches, assumptions about the context in which technology is to be used, and previous experiences with technology adoption. However, information systems implementation in engineering organizations generally disregards human, contextual, and organizational elements and is driven by the needs of individual departments rather than in response to the strategic needs of the entire organization. This paper presents an account of information systems implementation in a public sector transport organization. The case emphasizes the importance of ex-post or ex-ante evaluation of technology as well as the context of their implementation. It highlights that evaluation of information systems should not be treated as an isolated process, which is often left to auditors. In fact, it is a strategic activity that requires participation from a wider organizational community, which provides core justifications for investments in information systems as well as roadmaps for their implementation and institutionalization in the organization.
Unit Invariance as a Unifying Principle of Physics
Abrar Shaukat
Physics , 2010,
Abstract: A basic principle of physics is the freedom to locally choose any unit system when describing physical quantities. Its implementation amounts to treating Weyl invariance as a fundamental symmetry of all physical theories. In this thesis, we study the consequences of this "unit invariance" principle and find that it is a unifying one. Unit invariance is achieved by introducing a gauge field called the scale, designed to measure how unit systems vary from point to point. In fact, by a uniform and simple Weyl invariant coupling of scale and matter fields, we unify massless, massive, and partially massless excitations. As a consequence, masses now dictate the response of physical quantities to changes of scale. This response is calibrated by certain "tractor Weyl weights". Reality of these weights yield Breitenlohner-Freedman stability bounds in anti de Sitter spaces. Another valuable outcome of our approach is a general mechanism for constructing conformally invariant theories. In particular, we provide direct derivations of the novel Weyl invariant Deser--Nepomechie vector and spin three-half theories as well as new higher spin generalizations thereof. To construct these theories, a "tractor calculus" coming from conformal geometry is employed, which keeps manifest Weyl invariance at all stages. In fact, our approach replaces the usual Riemannian geometry description of physics with a conformal geometry one. Within the same framework, we also give a description of fermionic and interacting supersymmetric theories which again unifies massless and massive excitations.

Abstract: Tuberculosis of the middle ear and the mastoid is not a very common condition. Traditionally it has beendiagnosed because of its peculiar clinical features such as painless otorrhoea, sensori-neural hearing loss andmultiple perforations in the tympanic membrane. We report a case in which there were no clinical featuresof tuberculosis, otorrhoea was painful and hearing loss was of conductive variety. The final diagnosisdepends on histopathology and we recommend pathological examination of all tissue removed duringsurgery.

Abstract: OBJECTIVES: 1. To determine the normal valuses of the midsagittal diameters of the canal andbody of lumbar vertebrae in Pakistan. 2. To find out the relationship between the midsagittaldiameters of the vertebral canal and the vertebral body at all lumbar levels. 3. To determine theanteroposterior diameter of inferior vertebral notch and to find out its ratio with the vertebral body.Study design: The anatomic dimension of the verebral body and spinal canal of the lumbar vertebraewere analysed in Pakistan. Setting: Department of anatomy Nisgtar Medical College, Multan.PERIOD: June 1993 to December 1996. MATERIALS AND METHODS: one thousand fivehundred measurements were performed on the midsagittal dimerers of vertebral bodies, spinal canalsand anteroposterior diameters of inferior vertebral notches using complete sets of 75 lumbarvertebrae. Results: The mean midsagittal diameter of the lumber spinal canal in the Pakistanpopulation was less than that of south African and Nigerian population while the anterposteriordiameter of inferior vertebral notch was slightly greater then that of Nigerians. Conclusion: Themidagittal diametrer of the lumber spinal canal is narrowest in the east Asian population; theradiologic criteria of spinal stenosis should be reconsidered for these people.

Abstract: The common peroneal nerve (CPN) motoneurons were localized by horseradish peroxidase neuronal tracingtechnique. They extended from caudal part of L4 to the caudal part of L6 segments of the spinal cord inmonkey (macaca mulatta). The number and diameters of myelinated fibres in the CPN and its ventral rootsL4, L5 and L6 of the monkey were estimated from the photomicrographic montages of their aralditeembedded transverse sections. The mean count of these fibres was 896 in L4, 3228 in L5, 6959 in L6 and7497 in CPN. The average diameters of myelinated fibres in ventral roots measured between 2 and 1 um andin CPN between 2 and 22 :m . The percentage of myelinated fibres measuring 9 :m and above was 79.1%in L4, 86.7% in L5, 63.4% in L6 and 63.5% in common peroneal nerve.
Analysis of Inconsistencies in Object Oriented Metrics  [PDF]
Ahmed M. Salem, Abrar A. Qureshi
Journal of Software Engineering and Applications (JSEA) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/jsea.2011.42013
Abstract: Software Metrics have been proposed for procedural and object oriented paradigms to measure various attributes like complexity, cohesion, software quality, and productivity. Among all of these, “Complexity” and “Cohesion” are considered to be the most important attributes. As object oriented analysis and design appears to be at the forefront of software engineering technologies, many different object-oriented complexity and cohesion metrics have been developed. The aim of the paper is to compare some of the complexity and cohesion metrics and to analyze these metrics and expose their inconsistencies. The paper provides a brief introduction of CK and Morris’s metrics for calculating the complexity and cohesion of a software. The inconsistencies in these methods are exposed by providing various examples. The paper concludes by proving inconsistencies in CK’s cohesion matrices and Morris’s complexity matrices.
