Leptochloa fusca cultivation for utilization of salt - affected soil and water resources in Cholistan Desert
Ahmad, Farooq;
Sociedade & Natureza , 2010, DOI: 10.1590/S1982-45132010000100010
Abstract: in the cholistan desert, 0.44 million hectares are salt - affected low lying and clayey in nature locally known as 'dhars', where rainwater as well as saline groundwater could be utilized for growing salt tolerant grasses like leptochloa fusca as forage during summer. l. fusca is a promising candidate grass for economic utilization and better management of sodic, high ph, saline soil and saline water resources of the cholistan desert. l. fusca is known to be a versatile, halophytic, primary colonizer, easily propagatable, perennial, nutritive and palatable forage plant species. the grass has the good biomass producing potential and can grow equally well both under upland and submerged saline soil environment.
Runoff farming in reducing rural poverty in Cholistan desert
Ahmad, Farooq;
Sociedade & Natureza , 2008, DOI: 10.1590/S1982-45132008000100012
Abstract: the proposed study strives to provide an overall picture for establishing a relationship of indigenous rainwater harvesting technology and its impact in poverty alleviation. the topographic form and the soil characteristics of cholistan is the best catchment area for rainwater harvesting. different profiles point out that the area is very poorly drained, capable of generating maximum runoff after absorbing minimum water. water intake characteristics of fine textured soils show that infiltration rate is low to very low. findings show that there is direct relationship between water availability and poverty reduction. study also sheds light on both strengths and limitations of the indigenous technology on reducing rural poverty and recommends using this technology along with modern water harvesting techniques.
MANAGEMENT OF A SINGLE TYPHOID PERFO-RATION: A COMPARATIVE STUDY OF SIMPLE CLOSURE AND WEDGE RESECTION
Farooq Ahmad
The Professional Medical Journal , 1997,
Abstract: Typhoid enteric perforation is a common surgical problem in our country and various methods of itstreatment are unsatisfactory. OBJECTIVES: 1. To compare the results of simple closure and wedge reaction.2. To evaluate and compare the post-operative complications. DESIGN: Prospective study SETTING:Bahawal Victoria hospital, Bahawalpur. PERIOD: June 1994 to March 1996. PATIENTS: 49 Laparotomyproven patients of single typhoid PERFORATIN. Methods: Sequentially one patient was treated b simpleclosure and other by wedge resection. Repair failure, intestinal fistula, burst abdomen, superficial woundinfection and intra-peritoneal abscess formation were compared following these two procedures. RESULTS:Complications after simple closure were wound infection 33%, leakage from repair 21% wound dehiscence37% and residual abscess 25% as compared to wedge resection where these complications were 8%, 4%,an4% and 8% respectively. Conclusions: Wedge resection is superior to simple closure and is recommendedas the procedure of choice in solitary typhoid perforation.
EPIDURAL ANALGESIA

The Professional Medical Journal , 2007,
Abstract: Objective: To find out the association of epidural analgesia duringlabour with long termbackache. Design: A randomized controlled trial. Setting: Combined Military Hospital Rawalpindi.Period: March 2002 to Feb 2003. Material and Methods: 100 randomized to epidural group and 100 randomized tonon-epidural group. In the follow up study 92 women were from the epidural group and 89 from the non-epidural group.Results: There were no significant differences between groups in demographic details or other key characteristics.There were no significant differences in the onset or duration of low back pain. There were no differences in selfreported measures of disability in activities of daily living and no significant differences in measurements of spinalmobility. Conclusions: The incidence of new long term backache was not significantly increased in women whoreceived epidural analgesia in labour. Motor block resulting from epidural local anaesthetic administration was not asignificant factor in the development of backache.

GIS, GPS AND REMOTE SENSING APPLICATION TO INVESTIGATE AGRICULTURAL POTENTIAL IN CHOLISTAN
Farooq Ahmad
Revista Sociedade & Natureza , 2007,
Abstract: Agriculture plays the most important part in the economy of our country from macro perspective,while an equally important part in our social setup from a micro perspective. The ecologicalsystem of Cholistan desert is highly delicate and has gone under tremendous changes broughtupon by physical and mainly by human interventions. The rapid development and integrationof spatial technologies such as Geographic Information System, Global Positioning System,and Remote Sensing, have created many new tools for professionals, but have also widenedthe “digital divide”, leaving many with little understanding of the technology and potentialapplications. Remote sensing can provide valuable, timely and even predicted informationabout environment as an important basis for sustainable development. Geographic InformationSystem can provide effective tools for decision makers. The uses of GIS, GPS, and RS technologies,either individually or in combination, span a broad range of applications and degreesof complexity. It facilitates cooperative approaches and with the integration of GIS, there willbe a whole new framework for organizations and society to work together and make decisions.However, an integrated GIS based database management system handles this highly significanttask to make our country more prosper among Nations.
The Accelerated Rotating Disk in a Micropolar Fluid Flow  [PDF]
Sajjad Hussain, Muhammad Anwar Kamal, Farooq Ahmad
Applied Mathematics (AM) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/am.2014.51020
Abstract:

The problem of a micropolar fluid about an accelerated disk rotating with angular velocity Ω proportional to time has been studied. By means of the usual similarity transformations, the governing equations are reduced to ordinary non-linear differential equations and then solved numerically, using SOR method and Simpson’s (1/3) rule for s ≥ 0, where s is non-dimensional parameter which measures unsteadiness. The calculations have been carried out using three different grid sizes to check the accuracy of the results. The results have been improved by using Richardson’s extrapolation.
