Contentious Issues Arising from Payments made in Full and Final Settlement
R Ismail
Potchefstroom Electronic Law Journal/Potchefstroomse Elektroniese Regsblad , 2008,
Abstract: Payments made in full and final settlement have on several occasions presented interpretative difficulties for our judiciary, as will become apparent from this case discussion: Be Bop A Lula Manufacturing & Printing v Kingtex Marketing 2008 3 SA 327 (SCA). The Supreme Court of Appeal reversed the judgments of the trial court and the appeal court (full bench of the Cape Provincial Division) which were in favour of the creditor. In such cases, the essential enquiry is whether an agreement of compromise exists. A transactio or compromise (in the form of a legal agreement) exists where the relevant parties agree to settle previously disputed or uncertain obligations. Like any other agreement, a compromise is based on the contractual rules of offer and acceptance. The first material enquiry in this case wherein the debtor delivered the cheque payment to the creditor (in full and final settlement of the account), is whether 1) an intended offer of compromise exists; or 2) did the debtor merely intend to make payment towards an admitted liability. The court in the Be Bop (SCA) case came to the correct finding that an offer of compromise existed. Whilst the judgment is brief, the finding itself gives practical recognition to the principle that admission of liability for a specific amount, accompanied by payment (in full and final settlement), may still be accompanied by an intended offer of compromise, instead of merely making payment towards an admission of liability.

Analysing the Onus Issue in Dismissals Emanating from the Enforcement of Unilateral Changes to Conditions of Employment
R Ismail, I Tshoose
Potchefstroom Electronic Law Journal/Potchefstroomse Elektroniese Regsblad , 2011,
Abstract: The main objective of this article is to analyse the issue of onus emanating from the enforcement of unilateral changes to conditions of employment. At the heart of the controversy that has faced the Labour Appeal Court was how to interpret dismissals that appear to be based on operational requirements, and yet at the same time, such dismissals also appear to have the effect of compelling an employee to accept a demand in respect of a matter of mutual interest between the employer and the employee. The core section in the Labour Relations Act 66 of 1995 relating to disputes of this nature is section 187(1)(c) of the Act, and the central enquiry to such disputes is whether they are automatically unfair or operationally justifiable. The fine line that determines whether a dismissal is acceptable or not merits an analysis of the overall onus that faces an employer and employee. This analysis is the focus of the article, which deals predominantly with procedural issues. The issue relating to the promotion of collective bargaining will be assessed against the right to dismiss, based on an analysis of the situation in South Africa, and a brief comparison with the situations in the United Kingdom and Canada. Thereafter, recommendations are made to the South African legislature. KEYWORDS: Employee; onus; dismissals; unilateral; changes; conditions; employment

Increasing our competitiveness, productivity and innovation
A.R. Ismail
Archives of Orofacial Sciences , 2007,
Abstract: The science of research differs in many details, but the underlying focus is always on discovery and innovation. The very basis of research is about probing reality. By doing so the scientist would be able to disseminate scientific understanding and knowledge, with a passion for creative humanitarian solutions for the community. This aim could only be achieved by having individuals that truly understand the importance of linking the culture of creativity, knowledge and humanitarian activities that would result in increasing competitiveness, productivity and innovation.
Enrollment Forecasting based on Modified Weight Fuzzy Time Series
Z. Ismail,R. Efendi
Journal of Artificial Intelligence , 2011,
Abstract: Many different methods and models have been proposed by researchers using fuzzy time series for many different applications. The main issue in forecasting is in improving forecast accuracy. This paper presents the development of weight fuzzy time series based on a collection of variation of the chronological number in the Fuzzy Logical Group (FLG). The aim here is to develop an appropriate weight on fuzzy time series for forecasting of trend series data. A data set of university enrollment for Alabama University and Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) are used for forecasting. Results from this study shows that the proposed approach gave a lot of improvement. The forecasting fitness function used are the Means Square Error (MSE) and average error.
Topical cyclosporin as an alternative treatment for vision threatening blepharokeratoconjunctivitis: a case report

Abstract: pical cyclosporin as an alternative treatment for vision threatening blepharokeratoconjunctivitis: a case report Case report (1235) Total Article Views Authors: Ismail AS, Taharin R, Embong Z Published Date June 2012 Volume 2012:5 Pages 33 - 37 DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.2147/IMCRJ.S29960 Received: 15 January 2012 Accepted: 09 March 2012 Published: 27 June 2012 Abdul-Salim Ismail,1,2 Rohana Taharin,2 Zunaina Embong1 1Department of Ophthalmology, School of Medical Sciences, Universiti Sains Malaysia, Kubang Kerian, Kelantan, 2Department of Ophthalmology, Hospital Pulau Pinang, Jalan Resindensi, Pulau Pinang, Malaysia Abstract: Here, a case of vision threatening blepharokeratoconjunctivitis that responded well to topical cyclosporin is reported. A 9-year-old Malay girl with a history of bilateral blepharokeratoconjunctivitis was regularly treated with lid scrubbing using diluted baby shampoo, fusidic acid gel, and topical steroids as well as an intermittent course of oral doxycycline for the past year. She developed acute onset bilateral eye redness associated with poor vision in her right eye. Both eyes showed marked diffuse hyperemic conjunctiva with corneal vascularization. The presence of corneal vascularization obscured the visual axis in the right eye. The condition did not improve with regular intensive lid hygiene using diluted baby shampoo, fusidic acid gel, and topical steroids. She was started on topical cyclosporin A 0.5% every 6 hours. There was a dramatic regression of corneal vascularization after 3 days on topical cyclosporin, with marked improvement in visual acuity. This is a single case in which cyclosporin improved the status of the ocular surface. A large cohort study is required to justify its effectiveness in treating blepharokeratoconjunctivitis and to test its potential as an alternative immunosuppressive agent in comparison to conventional corticosteroids.

Comparison of the Effects of Organoclay Loading on the Curing and Mechanical Properties of Organoclay-Filled Epoxidised Natural Rubber Nanocomposites and Organoclay-Filled Natural Rubber Nanocomposites
R. N. Hakim,H. Ismail
Journal of Physical Science , 2009,
Abstract: Perbandingan di antara getah asli terepoksida (ENR) dan getah asli (NR) terisi tanah liat organo dari segi ciri-ciri pematangan, sifat tensil, kestabilan terma dan morfologi telah dikaji. Pembebanan tanah liat organo daripada 2 hingga 10 bsg telah digunakan di dalam kajian ini. Komposit nano telah disebatikan menggunakan mesinpenggulung kembar berskala makmal dan dimatangkan pada 150(insert darjah disini)C. Keputusan menunjukkan kekuatan tensil dan modulus tensil mencapai nilai maksimum pada 8 bsg tanah liat organo tetapi pemanjangan pada takat putus dan kestabilan terma meningkat dengan peningkatan pembebanan tanah liat organo. Keputusan keseluruhanmenunjukkan komposit nano ENR terisi tanah liat organo mempunyai masa pemprosesan yang lebih pendek dan sifat tensil yang lebih tinggi daripada komposit nano NR. Peningkatan sifat-sifat ini adalah disebabkan oleh penyerakan individu lapisan silikat yang homogeny di dalam matrik ENR sebagaimana ditunjukkan di dalam keputusanpembelauan sinar-x (XRD), mikroskopi electron imbasan (SEM) dan mikroskopi electron transmisi (TEM).
