HayrolAzril Mohamed Shaffril,Md. Salleh Hassan
International Business Management , 2012, DOI: 10.3923/ibm.2012.347.351
Abstract: Mobile phone and agriculture are two different things that can be integrated in so many ways. As other industries are manipulating the advantages of mobile phone so do the agriculture industry. The main objective of this study is to investigate the various purpose of mobile phone usage among the agro-entrepenuers while unleashing the contribution of this tool towards agro-based entreprenuers productivity. Apart from this, this study would like to discover any impacts of mobile phone usage on agro-entreprenuers productivity. This is a quantitative study where a developed instrument was used. A total of 365 respondents across Peninsular Malaysia were surveyed to gain the required data. Majority of the agro-based entreprenuers use mobile phone for seeking information related to their business activities while mobile phone has contributed towards their productivity in term of getting information needed and widening their networkings. Further analysis using independent t-test has confirmed that there was no significant difference in productivitiy for those who use mobile phone frequently and seldomly. It is recommended that responsible agencies such as Department of Agriculture and Malaysia and Communication and Multimedia Commission should play their role in promoting the advantages that mobile phone has in increasing agricultural productivity. Mobile web and phone line specifically for agriculture information should be created in doubling the function of mobile phone in agriculture.

Abstract: We examined the satisfaction of Pahang River community who live in Pekan towards certain aspects of their quality of life. What is the level of satisfaction of this community towards their quality of life; low, moderate or high? This is a quantitative study where questionnaire was used to gain the data needed. A total of 300 villagers had been selected as the respondents for this study. All of the respondents selected were the villagers that live along Pahang River in the area of Pekan, Pahang. SPPS was used to run the appropriate analyses. Overall, our analyses revealed that the Pahang River community living in Pekan have a moderate satisfaction towards their quality of life. However, further analysis employed, have indicated that Pahang River community in Pekan do have a high level of satisfaction towards four aspects of quality of life namely social involvement and relationship, safety at areas, home condition and education. Development in Pekan which includes the improvements along Pahang River need to continuously take place as it can have a huge impact on the Pekan community especially those who live along the Pahang River.

Md. Salleh Hassan,Hayrol Azril Mohamed Shaffril,Bahaman Abu Samah,Muhamad Shamshahkat Ali
Asian Social Science , 2012, DOI: 10.5539/ass.v8n12p133
Abstract: Agriculture and television are two different things that can be combined in many ways. Television has been utilized to further intensify agricultural development in Malaysia. This study attempts to discover the credibility of television when disseminating agricultural information to Malaysian farmers. A total of 400 farmers from four states in Malaysia were chosen as the respondents in this study. It was found that farmers view television as a credible source for disseminating clear and understandable agricultural information. In addition, it was considered credible due to its ability to provide up-to-date, unbiased and factual agricultural information. However, television is seen as less credible in terms of providing information at the right time, and is unable to provide all the necessary information.

Eman N. Ali, Suleyman A. Muyibi, Hamzah M. Salleh, Md Zahangir Alam, Mohd Ramlan M. Salleh
Journal of Water Resource and Protection (JWARP) , 2010, DOI: 10.4236/jwarp.2010.23030
Abstract: This study focused on developing an efficient and cost effective processing technique for Moringa oleifera seeds to produce natural coagulant for use in drinking water treatment. The produced natural coagulant can be used as an alternative to aluminum sulphate and other coagulants and used worldwide for water treatment. This study investigates processing Moringa oleifera seeds to concentrate the bio-active constituents which have coagulation activity. Moringa oleifera seeds were processed for oil extraction using electro thermal soxhlet. Isolation and purification of bio-active constituents using chromatography technique were used to determine the molecular weight of the bio-active constituents. The molecular weight of bio-active constitu-ents found to be in a low molecular weight range of between 1000 – 6500 Dalton. The proposed method to isolate and purify the bio-active constituents was the cross flow filtration method, which produced the natu-ral coagulant with very simple technique (oil extraction; salt extraction; and microfiltration through 0.45 µm). The turbidity removal was up to 96.23 % using 0.4 mg/L of processed Moringa oleifera seeds to treat low initial turbidity river water between 34-36 Nephelometric Turbidity Units (NTU) without any additives. The microfiltration method is considered to be a practical method which needs no chemicals to be added com-pared to other researchers proposed methods. The natural coagulant produced was used with low dosages to get high turbidity removal which considered to be a breakthrough in this study and recommended to be scaled up for industry level. The product is commercially valuable at the same time it is minimizing the cost of water treatment.

Md. Ashraful Babu, Jahira Tabassum, Md. Nazmul Hassan
Open Journal of Applied Sciences (OJAppS) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/ojapps.2016.68054
Abstract: Transport risk management is one of the predominant issues to any industry for supplying their goods safely and in time to their beneficiaries. Damaging goods or delaying the shipping both make penalty to the company and also reduce the goodwill of the company. Every way of transportation routes has to be comfy which can make sure the supplies will attain without damaging goods and in time and additionally cost efficiently. In this paper, we find a few not unusual risks which might be concerned about all types of way of routes which include Highway, Waterway, Airway, Railway and so forth. Additionally, we proposed a technique to attain multiple optimal solutions by using Modified Distribution Method (MODI) of a transportation problem. Finally, we reduce the risks by minimizing the possible number of transportation routes using multi-optimality technique of the transportation problem.
Existence of Equilibrium Points in the R3BP with Variable Mass When the Smaller Primary is an Oblate Spheroid  [PDF]
M. R. Hassan, Sweta Kumari, Md. Aminul Hassan
International Journal of Astronomy and Astrophysics (IJAA) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/ijaa.2017.72005
Abstract: The paper deals with the existence of equilibrium points in the restricted three-body problem when the smaller primary is an oblate spheroid and the infinitesimal body is of variable mass. Following the method of small parameters; the co-ordinates of collinear equilibrium points have been calculated, whereas the co-ordinates of triangular equilibrium points are established by classical method. On studying the surface of zero-velocity curves, it is found that the mass reduction factor has very minor effect on the location of the equilibrium points; whereas the oblateness parameter of the smaller primary has a significant role on the existence of equilibrium points.

Journal of Geoscience and Environment Protection (GEP) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/gep.2017.59006
Abstract: Jamuna River is one of the principal rivers of Bangladesh, changing continuously due to erosion and accretion over the past decades. This analysis evaluates the East Bank and the West Bank erosion and accretion between 1996 and 2015 for Jamuna River. An unsupervised classification algorithm and post-classification change employing skills in Geographic Information System are performed to evaluate spatial and temporal dynamics of erosion and accretion for different points of Jamuna River using Bangladesh. Landsat image (1995, 2005, 2015). The correctness of the Landsat-produced map ranges from 82% to 84%. It has been evidently observed that changes in the proportion of erosion and accretion differ in different points of Jamuna River. The highest eroded area is 3.82 square kilometers (km2) during the period of 1995 to 2005 and the highest accreted area is 6.15 square kilometers (km2) during the period of 1995 to 2015. The erosion and accretion values fluctuated from place to place. The changing trend of Riverbank is creating many socio-economic problems in the proximate areas.

M. R. Hassan, Payal Singh, Md. Aminul Hassan
International Journal of Astronomy and Astrophysics (IJAA) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/ijaa.2017.73011
Abstract: The present paper deals with the existence of periodic orbits in the Circular Restricted Four-Body Problem (CR4BP) in two-dimensional co-ordinate system when the second primary is a triaxial rigid body and the third primary of inferior mass (in comparison of the other primaries) is placed at triangular libration point L4 of the Circular Restricted Three-Body Problem (CR3BP). With the help of generating solutions, we formed a basis for the existence of periodic orbits, then an analytical approach given by Hassan et al. [1], was applied to our model of equilateral triangular configuration. It is found that in general solution also; the character of periodic orbits is conserved. For verification of the existence of periodic orbits, we have applied the criterion of Duboshin [2] and found satisfied.
Possibility Fuzzy Soft Set
Shawkat Alkhazaleh,Abdul Razak Salleh,Nasruddin Hassan
Advances in Decision Sciences , 2011, DOI: 10.1155/2011/479756
Abstract: We introduce the concept of possibility fuzzy soft set and its operation and study some of its properties. We give applications of this theory in solving a decision-making problem. We also introduce a similarity measure of two possibility fuzzy soft sets and discuss their application in a medical diagnosis problem. 1. Introduction Fuzzy set was introduced by Zadeh in [1] as a mathematical way to represent and deal with vagueness in everyday life. After that many authors have studied the applications of fuzzy sets in different areas (see Klir and Yuan [2]). Molodtsov [3] initiated the theory of soft sets as a new mathematical tool for dealing with uncertainties which traditional mathematical tools cannot handle. He has shown several applications of this theory in solving many practical problems in economics, engineering, social science, medical science, and so forth. Maji et al. [4, 5] have further studied the theory of soft sets and used this theory to solve some decision-making problems. They have also introduced the concept of fuzzy soft set, a more general concept, which is a combination of fuzzy set and soft set and studied its properties [6], and also Roy and Maji used this theory to solve some decision-making problems [7]. Alkhazaleh et al. [8] introduced soft multiset as a generalization of Molodtsov’s soft set. They also introduced in [9] the concept of fuzzy parameterized interval-valued fuzzy soft set and gave its application in decision making. Zhu and Wen in [10] incorporated Molodtsov’s soft set theory with the probability theory and proposed the notion of probabilistic soft sets. In [11] Chaudhuri et al. defined the concepts of soft relation and fuzzy soft relation and then applied them to solve a number of decision-making problems. Majumdar and Samanta [12] defined and studied the generalised fuzzy soft sets where the degree is attached with the parameterization of fuzzy sets while defining a fuzzy soft set. In this paper, we generalise the concept of fuzzy soft sets as introduced by Maji et al. [6] to the possibility fuzzy soft set. In our generalisation of fuzzy soft set, a possibility of each element in the universe is attached with the parameterization of fuzzy sets while defining a fuzzy soft set. Also we give some applications of the possibility fuzzy soft set in decision-making problem and medical diagnosis. 2. Preliminaries In this section, we recall some definitions and properties regarding fuzzy soft set and generalised fuzzy soft set required in this paper. Let be a universe set, and let be a set of parameters. Let denote the
