M. Ghorbani
Journal of Applied Sciences , 2008,
Abstract: In this study, effects of agricultural advisory services on input and output of sugar beet are examined by means compare and estimating the transcendental engineering production function. The empirical results based on the farm level data from 453 sugar beet producers of the main region of sugar beet production (Razavi Khorasan province) in 2008 suggested that agricultural advisory services has a positive and significant effect on sugar beet yield and negative effect on N, P, K fertilizer and pesticide inputs. Sugar beet output in group with advisory services was 0.0637 higher of alternative group. The results also implied that advisory of agricultural engineering had a positive and significant impact on utilization of herbicide, cultivated area, labour, number of irrigation and agricultural machinery rather than alternative group. These results call for more investment in agricultural advisory services through agricultural engineering in rural area and to organize the agricultural graduate students in this context for accelerating the agricultural growth.

Journal of Applied Sciences , 2009,
Abstract: In this study, import demand function of Iran has been analyzed with Pesaran and Shin method for 1960-2005. The results showed import demand is elastic related to increasing in gross domestic income. Thus, increasing in economic growth and national income increase balance of trade deficit and government could decrease balance of trade deficit with economic growth, simultaneously, so that imposes suitable fiscal polices like reducing in expenditure. Import growth because of increasing in gross domestic income showed Iran is going to open economy but it wouldn`t be cause of decreasing in production and competition power of domestic firms and producers.

H Kazemi,M Ghorbani
Journal of Shahid Sadoughi University of Medical Sciences , 2012,
Abstract: Introduction: The aim of this study was to evaluate the relationship between metacognitive components and dysfunctional attitudes in outpatients with bipolar mood disorder II. Methods: Thirty-six young adult outpatients with current diagnoses of BMD II(20 females and 16 males) were recruited from Esfahan Counseling Center. Diagnoses were based on the Structured Clinical Interview for DSM-IV Axis I Disorder-Clinical Version(SCID-CV). A battery of questionnaires including Metacognition Questionnaire and Dysfunctional Attitude Scale(DAS) were self-assessed by patients before medical therapy. Results: Pearson's correlation analysis showed that the components of metacognition and its relationship with dysfunctional attitudes is positive and significant(r= 28/0, p<0/05). Multiple regression analysis showed that two of the metacognitive components emerged as potentially useful in prediction of dysfunctional attitudes(negative beliefs about uncontrollability, danger and thoughts control). Also, results indicated that those two components have a significant positive relationship with vulnerability, perfectionism and effectiveness)R2= 0/29, 0/35; p<0/05). Components of positive beliefs about worry and beliefs about cognitive self-consciousness related to cognitive confidence in predicting the criterion variable and its components showed no significant contribution. Conclusion: Study findings suggest that DSM-IV BMD II outpatients with metacognitive distortions have shown higher levels of dysfunctional attitudes.
