An Examination of Calorie Demand Relationship in Pakistan
Khalid Mushtaq,Abdul Gafoor,Abeduallah
Pakistan Journal of Nutrition , 2007,
Abstract: This paper has examined the long-run relationship between daily per capita calorie intake, per capita income and food prices for Pakistan using aggregate data 1960-2001. Cointegration analysis yields the income-calorie elasticity of 0.21, while food-price elasticity is insignificant. Thus, economic growth, as measured by increasing per capita income, has significantly improved calorie intake in Pakistan; future economic growth can alleviate further inadequate calorie intake. However, significant improvements in calorie intake cannot be made directly by food subsidies. Nevertheless, the policies that lower food prices also have the indirect effect of increasing real incomes via the income effect. So it is in this sense that food-subsidy policies may have a role in improving calorie intakes. In the context of access to food, it would be important to identify the food insecure people, which are financially poor and are unable to acquire sufficient food, even if the overall supply of food in the country is sufficient. Further, causality tests indicate a bidirectional relationship from income to calorie intake; and from calorie intake to income.

Abstract: The ICT is the need of the hour for quality assurance in Higher Education as it fastens the process of assessment and audit with greater transparency. It is a model that can be used in assessing the quality of education in Colleges of the University. The procedure of this study uses the techniques of research and development with the following steps: (i) development of ICT model (ii) analysis of the model impact on the performance of the affiliated colleges. The overall quality assurance framework followed by National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) incorporates elements of all the three basic approaches to quality assurance – accreditation, assessment and academic audit. NAAC accredits institutions and certifies for the educational quality of the institution. It also goes beyond the certification and provides an assessment that classifies an institution on a nine-point scale indicating where the institution stands in the quality continuum. This paper focus on the first two criterions identified by NAAC to serve as the basis for its assessment procedure: Curricular Aspects Criterion, Teaching Learning and Evaluation
Inflammatory Pseudotumor of the Head Presenting with Hemiparesis and Aphasia
K. Saifudheen,James Jose,V. Abdul Gafoor
Case Reports in Neurological Medicine , 2011, DOI: 10.1155/2011/176546
Abstract: Inflammatory pseudotumor most commonly occurs in the orbit and produces orbital pseudotumor, but extension into brain parenchyma is uncommon. We report a case of inflammatory pseudotumor involving sphenoid sinus, cavernous sinus, superior orbital fissure, orbital muscle, and intracranial extension into left temporal lobe producing right hemiparesis and wernicke's aphasia. The patient improved clinically and radiologically with steroid administration. This paper provides an insight into the spectrum of involvement of inflammatory pseudotumor and the importance of early diagnosis of the benign condition.
Sufi Sama/ Music/ Qawwali
Syed Gafoor,Sarvodaya S.S.
Indian Streams Research Journal , 2012,
Abstract: Qawwali is a recognized musical genre in the Indian sub-continent. It shares general traits with the light classical music of North India but has unique characteristics related to its religious functions. The term Qawwali itself applies both the musical genre and to the occasion of its performance. The devotional assembly of the Islamic mysticism or Sufism in India, the practice of Qawwali extends throughout Muslim centres of the Indian sub-continent but its roots are in North India.
Neuromyelitis Optica
Goyal V,Rooru S,Gafoor AS,Sreekala VK
Indian Journal of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation , 2009,
Abstract: Neuromyelitis optica (NMO) is a rare, idiopathic,inflammatory disease affecting the spine andcharacteristically sparing the brain. It mimics multiplesclerosis (MS) in many aspects. A case report of 55 yearold house-maker, with recurrent attacks of flaccidweakness with visual and bladder disturbances who wasadmitted in the Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation(PMR) ward for neuro-rehabilitation is presented. Herserological studies and magnetic resonance imaging ofthe spine and brain revealed a diagnosis of idiopathicdemyelinating disease affecting the spine – Devic’sdisease.
Determinants of Bank Profitability in Pakistan: Internal Factor Analysis
Saira Javaid,Jamil Anwaré,Khalid Zaman,Abdul Gafoor
Mediterranean Journal of Social Sciences , 2011,
Abstract: Financial sector plays a pivotal role in the economic development. It is generally agreed that a strong and healthy banking system is a prerequisite for sustainable economic growth. Banks in Pakistan havebeen undergoing major challenges in the dynamic environment over the past few years. In order to resist negative shocks and maintain financial stability, it is important to identify the determinants thatmostly influence the overall performance of banks in Pakistan. This study aims to give the analysis of the determinants of top 10 banks’ profitability in Pakistan over the period 2004-2008. The focus is on the internal factors only. This paper uses the pooled Ordinary Least Square (POLS) method to investigate the impact of assets, loans, equity, and deposits on one of the major profitability indicator return on asset (ROA). The empirical results have found strong evidence that these variables have a strong influence on the profitability. However, the results show that higher total assets may not necessarily lead to higher profits due to diseconomies of scales. Also, higher loans contribute towardsprofitability but their impact is not significant. Equity and Deposits have significant impact on profitability.

Transparent Data Encryption- Solution for Security of Database Contents
Dr. Anwar Pasha Abdul Gafoor Deshmukh,Dr. Riyazuddin Qureshi
International Journal of Advanced Computer Sciences and Applications , 2011,
Abstract: The present study deals with Transparent Data Encryption which is a technology used to solve the problems of security of data. Transparent Data Encryption means encrypting databases on hard disk and on any backup media. Present day global business environment presents numerous security threats and compliance challenges. To protect against data thefts and frauds we require security solutions that are transparent by design. Transparent Data Encryption provides transparent, standards-based security that protects data on the network, on disk and on backup media. It is easy and effective protection of stored data by transparently encrypting data. Transparent Data Encryption can be used to provide high levels of security to columns, table and tablespace that is database files stored on hard drives or floppy disks or CDa€ s, and other information that requires protection. It is the technology used by Microsoft SQL Server 2008 to encrypt database contents. The term encryption means the piece of information encoded in such a way that it can only be decoded read and understood by people for whom the information is intended. The study deals with ways to create Master Key, creation of certificate protected by the master key, creation of database master key and protection by the certificate and ways to set the database to use encryption in Microsoft SQL Server 2008.

Wheat Productivity, Land and Water Use Efficiency by Traditional and Laser Land-leveling Techniques
Muhammad Asif,Manzoor Ahmed,Abdul Gafoor,Zhahoor Aslam
Journal of Biological Sciences , 2003,
Abstract: Present study was conducted to determine the impact of laser land leveling versus traditional land leveling on wheat productivity, land and water-use efficiency during Rabi 2000-2001. The result indicated that Laser land leveling gave significantly higher grain yields (5.56 t ha-1) than the unleveled land (3.99 t ha-1) but was at par with traditionally leveled one. However, no significant differences among the treatments were recorded for 1000-grain weight and grains ear-1. The total irrigation duration and applied water depth was reduced by 47 and 15% as compared to unleveled and traditional leveled fields, respectively. The laser-leveled fields exhibited the highest water use efficiency (WUE), which was 98.7 and 29.36% higher than the unleveled and traditionally leveled field, respectively. It was concluded that the use of Laser Land leveling surely increases grain yield and save irrigation water as compared to traditional method of sowing.
