N.A. Al-Humam,A.M. Al-Dughaym,G.E. Mohammed,F. M.housawi
Pakistan Journal of Biological Sciences , 2004,
Abstract: A total number of 400 nasopharyngeal and nasal swabs, collected with symptom suggestive of respiratory diseases, were examined. Pasteurella multocida were isolated in a percentage 2.5 from the total samples. Antigenic typing revealed that 50% of the isolates belong to capsular type A, 25% to type C and 25% to type E. Calves experimentally infected with P. multocida type A demonstrated typical clinical signs of haemorrhagic septicaemia, including fever, anorexia, submandebular and brisket oedema, congested mucous membrane, nasal discharge, moist rales in lungs, increase in respiratory rate, increase in pulse rate, tachycardia and recumbency. The severity of infection and mortality rate was more pronounced in calves infected with 10 ml of virulent P. multocida (6x108 c.f.u. ml-1) type A. Different organs were demonstrated to be predilection sites for P. multocida; these include lung, heart, trachea, spleen, liver, pharynx and oedematous fluid in the neck and nasal cavity. Infected calves which escaped death and completely recovered showed the presence of P.multocida in the nasal cavity during the whole period of the experiment

Onderstepoort Journal of Veterinary Research , 2012,
Abstract: The epidemiology of orf virus infection in Saudi Arabia (SA) has been researched since 1990. The results obtained during this period indicate that the disease is widespread, has great economic impact and that no vaccine has been used against it. The present study compares the immunogenicity and protective efficacy of three locally developed live orf virus vaccines. Two of them differ in their passage history in Vero cell culture and the third was used as a virulent virus in glycerine buffer. To the best of the authors’ knowledge, no similar comparative study has been conducted in the Middle East utilising three types of vaccines prepared from the same virus strain. Selection of the candidate seed orf virus and performance of the quality control tests were as laid out by the OIE for veterinary vaccine production. The vaccine seed virus was a field orf virus isolated from a previous orf outbreak in Saudi Arabia. A simple novel formula was developed to calculate the rate of reduction in the healing time (RHT %) in the challenged sheep. This allowed direct comparison of the efficacy of the three types of vaccines employed in the present study. The efficacy of each vaccine was tested on a cohort of local Noemi sheep.
Electrochemical Corrosion Behavior of Aluminum in Perchloric Acid  [PDF]
F. M. Mahgoub
Open Journal of Physical Chemistry (OJPC) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ojpc.2013.34022
Abstract:

The effects of acetate, citrate, benzoate, tetra-ethylammonium iodide (TEA) and 1,4,8,11 tetra-azacyclo-tetradecane (cyclam) on the corrosion behavior of aluminum in 1 M HClO4 at 40°C were studied by potentiodynamic polarization technique. Acetate, citrate, and benzoate inhibited the corrosion of aluminum and shifted the breakdown potential to positive direction. Cyclam was investigated as a macrocyclic organic inhibitor to the acid corrosion of aluminum. The addition of cyclam to the corroding medium showed a pronounced effect on the anodic but not on the cathodic part of the polarization curve. The addition of TEA to the medium enhanced the corrosion rate and shifted the breakdown potential to more negative value as the concentration increased. The results were discussed on the basis of the adsorption mechanism and the nature of the adsorbed species.

A Critical Analysis of Empiricism  [PDF]
F. M. Anayet Hossain
Open Journal of Philosophy (OJPP) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ojpp.2014.43030
Abstract: Empiricism is a philosophical theory which argues that human knowledge is derived entirely from sensory experience. As a branch of epistemology, empiricism disregards the concept of instinctive ideas and focuses entirely on experience and evidence as it relates to sensory perception. Empiricism is a philosophical school holding that knowledge can only be (or is primarily) gained from sensory experience. Accordingly, it rejects any (or much) use of a priori reasoning in the gathering and analysis of knowledge. It rivals rationalism according to which reason is the ultimate source of knowledge. The philosophy of empiricism was first put forth in John Locke’s An Essay Concerning Human Understanding. Locke argued that the only way by which human acquire knowledge is through experience. Locke firmly argued that humans are incapable of formulating or possessing inherent ideas. The aim of this paper is to explain that the traditional empiricist standpoint in the fields of epistemology and then try to show that it is not adequate for explaining some things relevant to these fields. For that the traditional empiricist methods needs to be supplemented by extra-logical principles that are not strictly empirical.
Valence Stabilization of Fe(II) Ions during Extended Gamma Irradiation of Their Aqueous Acidic Solutions Containing Phenol, Acetone, 4-Ethylpyridine or Hydrazine Hydrate  [PDF]

Abstract: Valence stabilization of polyvalent ions in acidic solutions during gamma irradiation is an important issue in nuclear aqueous chemical technology. Radiolysis and self irradiation problems encountered during chemical reprocessing of nuclear fuel or during chemical separation of transuranium elements or fission products are extremely important. Consequently studies on valence stabilization of polyvalent ions in strong gamma irradiation fields are very useful. In our previous publications, the valence stabilization of Fe(II) ions in acidic solutions during continuous gamma irradiation was achieved by using an inorganic compound; such as sodium sulfite, or some organic additives such as aliphatic alcohols, aldehyds or acids prior to irradiation. It was found that the efficiency of valence stabilization depends on the amount and chemical structure of the added compounds. In the present work, valence stabilization of divalent iron during gamma irradiation was studied in presence of some organic additives, belonging to some other classes of organic compounds such as Phenol (aromatic alcohol), Acetone (aliphatic ketone), 4-Aminopyridine (heterocyclic amino compound) and Hydrazine hydrate (aliphatic amino compound) to complement our previous studies. The results showed that valence stabilization of Fe(II) in presence of these compounds depends also on the amount and chemical structure of the additive used. Some interaction mechanisms have been proposed.
Valence Stabilization of Polyvalent Uranium Ions in Presence of Some Organic Additives during Extended Gamma Irradiation of Their Aqueous Acidic Solutions  [PDF]

Abstract: In gamma irradiated aqueous acidic uranium solutions, tetravalent uranium ions are easily oxidized while U(VI) ions remain unchanged. In general, valence change of polyvalent metallic ions during chemical reprocessing of spent nuclear fuel solutions can lead to undesirable effects under the influence of the existing gamma radiations. Consequently, studies on valence stabilization of Uranium ions during chemical treatment in strong gamma irradiation fields seem to be highly interesting. It has been reported before that some organic compounds proved to be effective in stabilizing the valence of Fe(II) ions during extended gamma irradiation of their acidic solutions. In the present work, valence stabilization of Uranium ions in acidic solutions in presence of different classes of organic compounds has been studied. The results showed that in case of U(IV), methanol or formic acid are capable of providing about 80% protection while ethanol or acetaldehyde can provide about 70% protection. Propanol has the least protective effect i.e. about 54%. On using U(VI) instead of U(IV) in the irradiated solutions, the uranium ions were reduced and the formed U(IV) was protected as follows: formic acid or methanol can provide 69% or 63% protection respectively while ethanol, acetaldehyde or propanol can provide 50%, 35% and 24% respectively. In any case, protection exists as long as the organic additives were not completely consumed.

The study recommended the organization of rural based programmes for the training of farmers in the practice identified to enhance their competencies in soil erosion prevention and control for increased crop production.
Discovering Monthly Fuzzy Patterns  [PDF]
M. Shenify, F. A. Mazarbhuiya
International Journal of Intelligence Science (IJIS) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ijis.2015.51004
Abstract: Discovering patterns that are fuzzy in nature from temporal datasets is an interesting data mining problems. One of such patterns is monthly fuzzy pattern where the patterns exist in a certain fuzzy time interval of every month. It involves finding frequent sets and then association rules that holds in certain fuzzy time intervals, viz. beginning of every months or middle of every months, etc. In most of the earlier works, the fuzziness was user-specified. However, in some applications, users may not have enough prior knowledge about the datasets under consideration and may miss some fuzziness associated with the problem. It may be the case that the user is unable to specify the same due to limitation of natural language. In this article, we propose a method of finding patterns that holds in certain fuzzy time intervals of every month where fuzziness is generated by the method itself. The efficacy of the method is demonstrated with experimental results.
