Open Journal of Pathology (OJPathology) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ojpathology.2014.42009

Background: Brucellosis in male goats is characterized by arthritis, orchitis and epididymitis, which may induce infertility. Nevertheless, these lesions were categorized as chronic while acute lesions had not been described. This study investigates the histopathological and immuno histochemistry reactions in organs of bucks acutely infected by Brucella melitensis. Results: Only testis and prepuce of acutely infected bucks showed significantly severe histological lesions. Other internal organs had mild to moderate lesions. However, positive immunohistochemistry stainings were observed in organs except the bulbourethral gland. There was a significant positive correlation between the distribution of B. melitensis and IHC intensity but no significant correlation between the IHC intensity and histopathology lesions. Conclusion: The results indicate that acute brucellosis did not lead to clinical presentation, although B. melitensis was well distributed in various organs of bucks.

Abstract: Corynebacterium pseudotuberculosis is the etiological agent of caseous lymphadenitis, a chronic infectious disease of sheep and goats. Despite the growing interest of this organism, little is known about the causality and effect of this organism on haematological and biochemical values. The purpose of this research, therefore was to determine haematological and serum biochemical features in mice inoculated with whole bacterium and exotoxin (PLD) extracted from C. pseudotuberculosis. The study was performed on apparently healthy mice of 2-3 weeks old (n = 64). The mice were divided equally into 3 groups; namely whole bacterium, exotoxin (PLD) and control group. Mice of whole bacterium group were exposed intraperitoneally to 1 mL of the inoculums containing 109 Colony-Forming Unit (CFU)/mL of live C. pseudotuberculosis. Exotoxin group were exposed intraperitoneally with a single dose of exotoxin (PLD) extracted from C. pseudotuberculosis. Mice served as a control group were challenged intraperitoneally to 1 mL of Phosphate-Buffered Saline (PBS), pH 7. Following post-infection, the mice were subjected for blood sample collection using cardiac puncture method for haematological and biochemical analysis. The results of this study revealed that there were significant decrease (p<0.05) in Hb, thrombocytes count and significant increase in WBC, neutrophils, monocytes counts in the infected group. Biochemically, there were highly significant increase (p<0.05) in the mean levels of CK, AST, ALP and ALT. The mean level of albumin in exotoxin group was significantly lower (p<0.05) compared to C. pseudotuberculosis and control groups while globulin level was significantly higher in C. pseuodotuberculosis group after 48 h. In serum electrolytes, mean level of potassium and phosphate were significantly (p<0.05) higher in infected groups compared to control group while there was no significant (p<0.05) difference in the levels of sodium, calcium and chloride. In conclusions, the present study of experimental nature showed that C. pseudotuberculosis and its exotoxin (PLD) cause disturbances in blood factors and electrolytes and pointed out that t hese haematological and biochemical alterations should be taken into account in the context of diagnosis and treatment of valuable infected hosts in order to prevent further consequences.

Fuel Saving and Control for Hybrid Electric Powertrains  [PDF]
Mohamed Zaher, Sabri Cetinkunt
Energy and Power Engineering (EPE) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/epe.2013.55035

This paper focuses on comparing the performance of the embedded control of a hybrid powertrain with the original and downsized engine. The main idea is to store the normally wasted mechanical regenerative energy in energy storage devices for later usage. The regenerative energy recovery opportunity exists in any condition where the speed of motion is in the opposite direction to the applied force or torque. A rule based optimal robust control algorithm is developed and is tuned for different work cycles. A comparison of the fuel savings using the hybrid system with the original and downsized engines is performed.

International Journal of Intelligence Science (IJIS) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ijis.2013.33015

There are few changes that took place in Iraqin many fields during the past few years; the financial aspect is one of the fields that undergone this change. The change has positive impact because it increases the revenue inIraqfrom the oil exports. The National Insurance Company is one of many companies that belongs to the Ministry of Finance inIraqand has affected directly from this change in term of increasing the number of the insurers which we will discuss in this research. The aim of this research is to forecast the insurance premiums revenue of the National Insurance Company between the years 2012 to 2053 using Artificial Neural Network based on the actual annual data of the insurance premiums revenue between the years 1970 to 2011. The data analyses results of this research show that the growth indicator of the insurance premiums revenue for the next 41 years is approximately 120%, the Mean Squared Error is the average squared difference between outputs and targets. Lower values are better. Zero means no error and the regression values are very high. The estimations and forecasts of the insurance premiums revenue using Artificial Neural Network confirmed to be strong and useful to deploy it for forecasting the insurance premiums revenue.

International Journal of Intelligence Science (IJIS) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ijis.2013.34017

This paper aims to demonstrate the importance and possible value of housing predictive power which provides independent real estate market forecasts on home prices by using data mining tasks. A (FFBP) network model and (CFBP) network model are one of these tasks used in this research to compare results of them. We estimate the median value of owner occupied homes in Boston suburbs given 13 neighborhood attributes. An estimator can be found by fitting the inputs and targets. This data set has 506 samples. ousing inputs” is a 13 × 506 matrix. Thehousing targets is a 1 × 506 matrix of median values of owner-occupied homes in $1000’s. The result in this paper concludes that which one of the two networks appears to be a better indicator of the output data to target data network structure than maximizing predict. The CFBP network which is the best result from the Output_network for all samples are found from the equation output = 0.95 * Target + 1.2. The regression

Social Networking (SN) , 2019, DOI: 10.4236/sn.2019.81003
Digital marketing is considered the preferred method comparing to traditional marketing nowadays [1], but is it true for luxury and expensive products? Since the perception prevails that the concepts “luxury” and “digital” are quite incompatible [2], this paper aims to explore the effectiveness of digital marketing advertisements of luxury retailers, while also exploring consumer’s purchasing intent based on the viewing of such promotions. The overall goal is to provide a model of luxury purchase behaviour through harnessing social media. As a constructionist ontology-based researcher, I believe in multiple versions of reality which can evolve based on my target consumer experiences [3]. My epistemological stance is interpretivism with a subjective approach, inductively interacting with consumers to better understand what this “truth” means to them, incorporating textual material to support the analytical interpretations [4]. It is hoped this paper will inform fashion brands marketers about social media practice to achieve creation of purchase intention and ultimately achieve target sales. The paper is useful to both practitioners and academics in the fields of social media marketing and purchase intention. The research provides some initial insights into consumer perspectives of social media ads and online purchase behaviour.

Abstract: Organizational culture can be defined as the intermixture between values, visions, language, behaviors and beliefs that shape an entity’s unique operating environment. Although the personality of a business may be difficult to articulate, it can have a huge impact on how members of an organization deal with each other, customers and other stakeholders. A good organizational structure facilitates attainment of objectives through proper coordination of all activities. Recently, practitioners and academics aim to identify type of culture before starting a project. Accepting and conducting research is a project by itself, in which, many organizations have a flexible appetite to conduct research to help their objectives. This paper demonstrates the identification of appropriate frameworks to prepare an audit of the organizational culture towards research informed decision-making and management, which means that the paper will analyze definitions of what research means before conducting the organizational research-culture audit to understand the research appetite of the organization.

Biodiversitas , 2004,
Abstract: The selection of appropriate rattan for a certain use must be based on adequate information about its potency, anatomical structure, and chemical properties. Standards methods of inventory development by Curtis method was used to obtain data on its density and frequency. To know the anatomical structure of preparation were made according to Schultze method and microtome preparation according to Staining Paraffin Section with Safranin. While to know the chemical component of rattan stem the analyzed by Standard Industry Indonesia procedures. Calamus occidentalis is one among other Java rattan species which its distribution is limited in the area of Ujung Kulon National Park, West Java. C. occidentalis may be utilized for various purposes based on the following characteristics: species density of 21 cane/ha; and anatomical structure: fiber length of 2204 m, fiber-wall thickness of 4.26 m, vascular bundle diameter of 812.5 m, metaxylem diameter of 293.75 m, proxylem diameter of 43.5 m, and phloem diameter of 37.5 m. Its chemical components are cellulose (49.95%), lignin (22.39%), and air-dry moisture (12.27%). Based on the above information, C. occidentalis rattan species possibly can be used as an alternative substitute of Calamus manan, an endangered rattan species, because several properties of C. occidentalis has similar with that of C. manan.
