Abstract: A total of 2340 mammary glands of 585 primiparous and pluriparous lactating buffaloes in different stages of lactation were examined with California Mastitis Test ( CMT) and laboratory examination was carried out to identify the most prevalent micro-organisms in clinical and sub-clinical mastitis. The physical examination revealed 2.61 per cent blind teats and CMT revealed 6.71 per cent positive quarters for mastitis. Microbiological examination of 157 sub-clinical mastitis milk samples and 46 clinical mastitis milk samples was carried out. There was high occurrence of streptococci (35.46%) followed by staphylococci (33.99%), E. coli (27.09%), pseudomonas spp. ( 1.97%) and Corynaebacterium pyogenes (1.48%). The in vitro sensitivity revealed kanamyciin (82.6%), highly effective against various isolates followed by gentamycin (53.0%).

Abstract: For oestrus detection in sheep while in flocks, limited exposure is given to rams with tied apron in front of their prepucial opening. For better and un-feared use of rams for oestrus detection and for effect of , ram exposure on postpartum reproductive characteristics of ewes, rams before the attainment of puberty and those sexually mature (adult rams) were operated for lateral deviation of prepuce and penis. The operations were successful, no post operative complications were recorded and these rams exhibited normal libido and were found efficient for oestrus detection in ewes.

Abstract: Forty buffaloes (group A) and 40 buffalo calves of either sex between 3 to 6 months age (groups Band C) were inoculated with oil adjuvant Haemorrhagic septicemia vaccine. The calves of group C were given a booster dose of vaccine after 90 days. The immunity conferred by oil adjuvant vaccine against Haemorrhagic septicaemia lasted for one year in adult buffaloes whereas, it lasted for seven months in calves. In calves which were injected booster dose, the immunity conferred persisted for more than one year.

Abstract: This paper presents a systematic view of most up-to-date tools, technologies and techniques which is appropriate not only for effective decision making, but also helpful for competent administration to provide efficient resolution for spatial troubles of Khasra and Parcel management. Different Data collection techniques have been applied on different data sources. Worldview II of 0.5 resolution image, scanned Master Plan and Cadastral/Khasra Maps was used for development of geodatabase for spatial and non-spatial entities using ArcGIS 10.2. Multiple processing on Satellite Imagery using ERDAS Imagine was performed like Image enhancement, Mosaicking and Color Balancing, Image Geo-referencing and Raster Cataloging. Development of Customize Graphical User Interface (GUI) for DHA’s officials and administrator makes efficient decision in society matters. This is the first spatial GUI, for DHA to plan and maintain society’s activities efficiently, in the form of ArcMap Add-Ins. These Add-Ins are written in C#.Net using ArcObjects APIs within MSVS 2012.
Novel Techniques for Gene Delivery into Plants and Its Applications for Disease Resistance in Crops  [PDF]
Ahmad Hama Ameen Rashid, Djshwar Dhahir Lateef
American Journal of Plant Sciences (AJPS) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/ajps.2016.71019
Abstract: From the early past to the present, biotechnologies have produced the ability to genetically transform a wide variety of plant species. The plant transformation technologies have changed the face of agriculture and plant biology. Plant genetic transformation is one of the key technologies for crop improvement in addition to emerging approach for producing recombinant proteins in plants. Both plastid genomes and plant nuclear can be genetically modified. Until now, essential functional differences between the prokaryotic-like genome of the plastid and the eukaryotic genome of the plant cell nucleus will have an impact on characteristics of transgenic organism. Thus, the main goals are to generate transgenic plants with the traits of interest as well as minimizing the amount of transgenic DNA in plants while maximizing stability of gene expression and trait performance. In this review, two broad groups of gene delivery methods will be discussed namely, (bilogical and physical methods) and subsequently there applications for improving disease resistance will be discussed.
Comparison of Magnetic Resonance Urography (MRU) with Intravenous Pyelography (IVP) in Evaluation of Patients with Hydronephrosis on Ultrasonography Due to Pelvi-Ureteric Junction Obstruction  [PDF]

International Journal of Clinical Medicine (IJCM) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/ijcm.2016.75038
Abstract: The objective of this study was to compare Magnetic Resonance Urography (MRU) with Intravenous Pyelography (IVP) in evaluation of patients with hydronephrosis on ultrasonography. 49 patients of hydronephrosis on USG were enrolled for the study from Jan. 2011 to Dec. 2012. All patients under went Intravenous Urography (IVU). MRU was done to determine the anatomical details and function of each renal unit. MRU was performed on a 1.5 tesla unit (Magneton Avento; Siemens, Erlangen, Germany). Static T2-weighted Magnetic Resonance Urography (MRU) was performed by using a standard fast spin echo technique. Dynamic study was performed after injecting intravenous diuretic followed by Gadolinium contrast media. Morphological results of MRU were compared with IVU. The anatomical findings were compared with operative findings. Stastical analysis was performed and data expressed as mean ± SD. MRU showed PUJ obstruction in 41 out of 45 patients (91.1%). We concluded that MRU can provide complete diagnostic evaluation of entire urinary tract in a single session and has potential to replace IVP.
On-Line Monitoring of Hydropower Plants in Pakistan
Iftikhar Ahmad,Abdur Rashid
Information Technology Journal , 2007,
Abstract: In this study, we present a comparison of traditional and modern techniques for monitoring hydropower plants. Traditionally, in Pakistan, the maintenance of hydropower plants is based on periodic-based corrective techniques, which involves shutdowns of plants over specified periods. The method not only restricts the operator to wait for the periodic shutdown for routine maintenance, but also proves to be more costly in case of major defects occurring in the plant. We propose on-line monitoring of the equipment, which involves continuous observation of the system parameters without system or equipment being stopped. The outcome is the early detection of any abnormality/fault and limiting of the severity of any potential damage to the system.

Abstract: Pakistan has a severe electricity load shading problem. Government is trying to find out all ways for electricity generation. Alternative energy board is working to find out the energy potential using all alternative resources. Board has an objective to produce 9700 MW by 2030 to overcome load shading problem. A research was designed to find out the solar energy potential as an alternative source of energy from rooftops of residential areas in district Lahore. Punjab Governments servants housing society Lahore is selected. The society has minimum slope, aspect and shadows effects on the roofs. Also houses in PGSHS have same house structures and good town plan. A few portions of roofs are digitized to measure the available rooftop area for Photovoltaic panel’s installation. GIS models are used to find out solar energy potential monthly as well as yearly for the year of 2014. The potential estimated is 39,613,072 kWh/year. The monthly total energy consumption of the society is 347,140 kWh which is only 11% of energy production from PV solar panels. As the estimated energy is 9 times than the energy demand of the society, extra energy can be used in local/national electricity transmission grid. Solar PV energy would be supplement to compensate energy shortfall in local area.

International Journal of Otolaryngology and Head & Neck Surgery (IJOHNS) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ijohns.2012.13016
Abstract: The aim of this study is to determine the percentage of septal deformities in symptomatic patients in Kashmiri population, identified at otolaryngology clinic of a referral & a teaching tertiary care hospital SKIMS Medical College, Bemina, Srinagar, where 429 patients with nasal septal deviation were identified. All of the patients underwent nasal examination by anterior rhinoscope and nasal endoscopy. Pathological septal deformities were identified & grouped into five types by using SL classification. The frequency of nasal septal deformation has been found to be 151 (35.19%) in males and 278 (64.80%) in females .The age incidence showed that most of the patients between second and fifth decades. The distribution of the five types of septal deformity was 19%, 3.5%, 10.48%, 6.75%, 0.93% & Combinations 60.10% (9.3%, 20.97%, 8.39% and 21.44%) respectively. The most common presentation in overall patients were nasal obstruction 80% and headache 50%. Nasal septal deviation was more prevalent in females. Nasal obstruction was the most common presenting complaint in all over types of nasal septal deviation. So, early diagnosis and intervention can avoid the related complications and thus help normal life and learning.

Zia Ul Islam, Sajid Rashid Ahmad, Khurram Chohan, Ather Ashraf
Journal of Geographic Information System (JGIS) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/jgis.2015.74028
Abstract: World energy consumption increased by 56 percent, from 524 quadrillion Btu in 2010 to 820 quadrillion Btu in 2040. The increased demand in energy consumption is fulfilled by different renewable and non-renewable sources such as petroleum, natural gas, electricity, nuclear etc. Natural gas is one of the most important sources of energy. SNGPL has been managing a 94,263 km long gas pipelines network covering approximately the northern part of Pakistan. In this paper we have presented the use of condition based maintenance (CBM) management techniques with ageographical information system (GIS) for asset management of a gas distribution network ofSNGPL. The continuous monitoring and updating of asset data reveal where the assets are located and which needs maintenance or which lies in critical condition. The system helps to save time and reduce visits to the sites and labour reduction.
