Journal of Environmental Protection (JEP) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/jep.2014.517147
Abstract: A HPGe (High Purity Germanium) detector based, low background gamma-ray counting system was used for activity measurement in soil, sand and sediment samples collected from Potenga sea beach area of Chittagong, Bangladesh. The specific radioactivities of Radium (226Ra), Thorium (232Th) and Potassium (40K) were measured in the above samples. The investigation reflects the lower deposition of minerals exist in the collected samples. From the measured specific radioactivities of the above three natural radionuclides, the radium equivalent activity (Raeq), the external hazard index (Hex), the external gamma absorbed dose rate and the annual effective dose were calculated. The obtained mean values of gamma absorbed dose rate in soil and sand samples and annual effective dose in soil, sand and sediment samples were found higher than the worldwide average as reported by United Nations Scientific Committee on the Effects of Atomic Radiation (UNSCEAR, 2000). The Raeq values were in the range of 47.86 to 293.76 Bq·kg-1 and the Hex varied from 0.13 - 0.81, which indicated that the study area was radiologically safe for human being.
Integrase Strand Transfer Inhibitors as potential anti-HIV agent
Sabina Yasmin, Karampuri Srinivas, Ashoke Sharon and Chandralata Bal
GERF Bulletin of Biosciences , 2011,
Abstract: Rigorous research over the years has produced a number of potential drugs that target various stages of the human immunodeficiency virus type I (HIV-I) life cycle. Despite remarkable success of anti HIV drug discovery, resistance and cross resistance posses major hurdles and needs attention. The last two decades of research to target virally encoded enzyme integrase, has yielded only one FDA approved drug raltegravir. This slow drug development for integrase may attribute due to its poor 3D structural and catalytic information. This review focus on the perspectives of integrase strand transfer inhibition related to structural and medicinal chemistry approaches as anti HIV target.

Sabina Yasmin,Md. Shahidul Islam,Khondoker Md. Nasiruddin,Md. Samsul Alam
Biotechnology , 2006,
Abstract: Random Amplified Polymorphic DNA (RAPD) analysis was used to study the genetic diversity of six cultivars of potato. Amplification with three decamer random primers generated 35 RAPD markers of which 33 (94.29%) were polymorphic. The proportion of polymorphic loci and the gene diversity estimates were 14.29% and 0.068, 8.57% and 0.138, 17.14% and 0.075, 51.43% and 0.217 and 54.29% and 0.245 for Cardinal, Diamant, Heera, Raja and TPS, respectively. The results indicated that relatively high level of genetic variation was observed in the TPS and Raja cultivars compared to other cultivars studied. No intra-cultivar genetic variation was observed in the Ailsa cultivar. The high level of cultivar differentiation (GST = 0.634) and low level of gene flow (Nm = 0.289) across all loci reflected that the level of genetic divergence among six cultivars was high. The UPGMA dendrogram based on the Nei`s genetic distances segregated the cultivars into three clusters: Ailsa and Heera made one cluster, Cardinal and TPS made another cluster whereas Diamant and Raja grouped into another cluster. The RAPD markers were found to be useful in studying genetic diversity of potato cultivars.

Clement E. Tagoe, Yasmin Raza
International Journal of Clinical Medicine (IJCM) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ijcm.2013.412A2003

Objectives: To define clinical differences in the acute phase response and serum acute phase reactants between gout, pseudogout and crystal-induced arthritis in the presence of non-articular infections (CAI). Patients and Methods: Eleven patients with definite gout, 12 patients with pseudogout and 5 patients with CIA were included in the study. Results: The erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) was significantly different between gout (68.2 ± 49.9 mm/Hr) and CIA (113.8 ± 37.2 mm/Hr) but not between gout and pseudogout (83.9 ± 45.6 mm/Hr) or between pseudogout and CIA. The C-reactive protein (CRP) was significantly increased between gout (10.1 ± 7.9 mg/dL) and pseudogout (18.9 ± 9.8 mg/dL), gout and CIA (36.5 ± 12.4 mg/dL) as well as between pseudogout and CIA. The peripheral white cell count was significantly different between gout (9.27 ± 3.7 k/μL) and CIA (16.5 ± 6.8 k/μL), and between pseudogout (8.9 ± 3.2 k/μL) and CIA. Conclusions: Measurement of ESR and CRP are helpful in crystal-induced arthritis. The CRP has more discriminating utility than the ESR in distinguishing between gout, pseudogout and CIA. Peripheral wbc is most useful for differentiating crystal-induced arthritis from CIA.

Groundwater Modelling of the North-Eastern Part of Barind Tract for its Sustainable Development and Management, Bangladesh
Rubaiyat Yasmin
Asian Journal of Information Technology , 2012,
Abstract: Groundwater is an important natural resource of the world. Large-scale groundwater utilization in the past world has resulted in adverse economic-cum-environmental problems such as continual decline of piezometric levels, land subsidence and groundwater quality deterioration. Groundwater modelling of the study area has been prepared for the assessment of groundwater resources and to prescribe a long-term development policy. FLOWNET and MODFLOW has been used and calibrated to simulate the groundwater levels in the aquifer system. The model is calibrated against the field hydrographs of the study area. The aquifer system responses to different pumping schemes are then predicted for different periods. The present model could be used for future planning of sustainable groundwater development and management of the area studied.
Detection of Smoke Propagation Direction Using Color Video Sequences
Rubaiyat Yasmin
International Journal of Soft Computing , 2012,
Abstract: To better assess fire location and direction of fire development, it is crucial to detect smoke and a clear undestanding of smoke propagation direction. Smokes tend to progress rather than backtrack. They do not usually go in one direction. The proposed method focuses on the detection of smoke propagation direction with image analysis that enables a potential fire risk situation to be recognized at an early stage. Using the consecutive smoke image frames having significant smoke candidate, comparison has been done by DP matching to detect the global direction of smoke propagation. In this research, the possible directions of smoke have been grouped into 4 categories. The direction of movement of smoke in one category shows the global direction of smoke propagation in that direction. The general information about that direction can be used to identify area at risk for at least filling with smoke and possibly catching fire.
Trapped in the Carceral Net: Race, Gender, and the “War on Terror”
Yasmin Jiwani
Global Media Journal : Canadian Edition , 2011,
Abstract: The events of September 11, 2001 unleashed a series of security measures designed ostensibly to protect Western nations from terrorist attacks. Many of these measures were aimed at keeping out potential terrorists and neutralizing potential terrorist activities. However, many were also aimed at citizens within the nation, legitimizing their exclusion and denial of rights. Drawing on the case of Omar Khadr, this paper argues that the carceral net ensnaring Omar Khadr was in operation well before 2001. However, since then, the carceral net has tightened to render Muslim bodies unworthy on the grounds of their putative criminality, and as undeserving victims, unbefitting state intervention and societal sympathy. The colour line, I argue, demarcates bodies that are considered worthy as opposed to those precarious others who can be penalized by the state and whose lives simply do not matter. Race, class and gender intersect and interlock to construct particular representations of victimhood as demonstrated by contemporary media representations of Muslim women.
Aemilia Lanyer and Shakespeare's Helena

Opticon1826 , 2010, DOI: 10.5334/opt.091002
Abstract: Not much is known about the middle class womenfrom the Elizabethan and Jacobean era who served the aristocracy and lived on its edge. Aemilia Lanyer and Shakespeare’s Helena, a real woman and a dramatic character, are two such women. By considering one of Shakespeare’s female characters alongside a real woman from the period who shared a similar social predicament, much may be learnt about the cultural position of women at the time, the limits upon women’s agency, and the efforts by some women to pursue their aspirations and desires within these limits. By taking this New Historicist approach we may also learn something about Shakespeare in the context of his time. This article will look at Lanyer, who served as a companion to the Countess of Cumberland, and Helena from All’s Well That Ends Well, who was a companion to the Countess Rossillion. It will examine their lives and choices and compare their situation with the aristocratic women they served. The article will look for parallels in the circumstances of all these women.
The Professional Medical Journal , 2009,
Abstract: Objective: To assess and compare the number of subjects in both groups (Study and comparison), who went into active labour within 24 hours and to compare the various complications (maternal & fetal) in both groups. Study Design: Quasi experimental. Sampling Technique: Convenience sampling. Sample Size & Setting: A total of 100 pregnant women presenting with history of leaking amniotic fluid at term (≥37 wks) to labour ward of obstetrics and Gynaecology unit, Bahawal Victoria Hospital, Bahawalpur were included in the study. Material & Method: The pregnant women fulfilling the inclusion criteria were enrolled as our study subjects. Rupture of membranes was confirmed by nitrazine test.The patients were randomized into two groups (50 women in study and 50 in comparison group). In study group, 50 (Ligm of misoprostol was given orally after initial assessment of mother and fetus. The dose was repeated 4 hourly, if there was no uterine activity. The number of patients going into active labour and delivering within 24 hours were noted. Different complications (maternal & fetal) faced during all procedure were also recorded and managed. In comparison group, patients were managed were also recorded and managed. In comparison group, patients were managed conservatively for 24 hours. Like in study group, number of patients gong into active labour and delivering with in 24 hours were noted. Different maternal & fetal complications occurring in this group were also recorded and managed. Results: A total of 100 Pregnant women were included in the study. The sample size (100 patients with PROM at term) was completed in 5 months. During that period over all 1105 deliveries were conducted, so the incidence of PROM at term in the study was 9.4%. It was observed in the study group, that all the patients (100%) went into active labour and 96% were delivered within 24 hours of PROM. While in comparison group 72% patients went into active labour and only 62% were delivered within 24 hours of PROM. The results showed that in study group 36 patients went into active labour with only one dose of oral misoprostol, 9 patients required 2 doses and 5 patients required 3 doses of oral misoprostol for going into active labour. When maternal complications were compared in both groups, 92% patients in study group had no complication while only 8% patients had to face different complications. In comparison group 86% had no complication and in 14% patients different complications occurred. Regarding fetal complications 4% fetus/neonates had to face different complications in each group. I

Iranian Journal of Earth Sciences , 2011,
Abstract: The basement rocks encountered in exploratory boreholes drilled for exploration and evaluation of coal deposits in Thar Parkar district, Sindh Pakistan have formed the basis for present studies. The basement complex was penetrated through eighteen boreholes at drill depth range from 112 to 279 meters. These rocks were identified in field as Pink and Grey Granites.. The basement rocks are of Igneous as well as metamorphic origin. The Igneous rocks identified petrographically are Alkali-feldspar Granite, Granodiorite, Rhyolite, Rhyodacite and Aplite while that of metamorphic origin is Plagioclase Hornblende Gneiss. These rocks are termed as Thar Granitoids. The chemical data plotted in various binary and ternary diagrams suggests that the Thar Granitoids are (1) in general peraluminous in nature (2) restricted to psuedoternary minimum at moderate water pressure.
