Determination Range Susceptibility of Anopheles Stephensi Mamassani Strain in Fars Province to DDT, Malathion and Fenitrothion
Sahra Ghavami,Hosein Ladoni
Journal of Research in Health Sciences , 2011,
Abstract: Background: An. Stephen's is one of the main malaria vectors in the south of Iran. This anopheles is a kind of resistance to some organophesphorous and organochlorine insecticides. So An. Stephensi is collected in a village called "Bekesh Dodangeh" in the south of Iran to determine the degree of susceptibility to DDT 4%, malathion 5% and fenitrothion 1% insecticides. Methods: The testing methods were used according to standard WHO. The tests were carried out on blood fed adult females in lots of 25 adults in 4 replicates Results: An. Stephensi touched to malathion 5% and fenitrothion 1% insecticides in 20, 30 and 60 minutes exposure time showed the mortality effect on them as follows: Malathion (86.8%, 84.2% and 98.02%), Fenitrothion (57.1%, 60.3% and 97.02%). The result of the tests showed An. Stephensi is susebtibility to malathion and tolerant to fenitrothion. However, this Anophel had resistance to Malathion in Mamassani; therefore, the reason of this increase susceptibility was not used malathion insecticide in this region. Tolerant cause to fenitrothion was non-used this insecticide in Noorabad Mamassani and little concentration and unsufficient exposure time. Also we tested susceptibility of An. Stephensi to DDT in 20, 30 and 60 minutes. The result of mortality testes were 38.4%, 56.3% and 37.1% degree testes KD were 7.6%, 13.9% and 39.7%. So An. Stephensi is resistant to DDT insecticide. This anopheles has resistant background in Mamassani.

The collected spiders counted and frequency of each species and dominant species determined. The following species Thanatus formicinus (Clerck), Cheiracanthium pennyi (O.P. Cambridge), Aulonia albimana (Walckenaer), Neoscona adianta (Walckenaer) were dominant species in Tehran, Ardebil, Fars and Golestan cotton fields, respectively.
PERCEPOLIS: Pervasive Cyberinfrastructure for Personalized Learning and Instructional Support  [PDF]
Ali R. Hurson, Sahra Sedigh
Intelligent Information Management (IIM) , 2010, DOI: 10.4236/iim.2010.210067
Abstract: This paper describes PERCEPOLIS, an educational platform that leverages technological advances, in particular in pervasive computing, to facilitate personalized learning in higher education, while supporting a networked curricular model. Fundamental to PERCEPOLIS is the modular approach to course development. Blended instruction, where students are responsible for perusing certain learning objects outside of class, used in conjunction with the cyberinfrastructure will allow the focus of face-to-face meetings to shift from lecture to active learning, interactive problem-solving, and reflective instructional tasks. The novelty of PERCEPOLIS lies in its ability to leverage pervasive and ubiquitous computing and communication through the use of intelligent software agents that use a student’s academic profile and interests, as well as supplemental information such as his or her learning style, to customize course content. Assessments that gauge the student’s mastery of concepts are used to allow self-paced progression through the course. Furthermore, the cyberinfrastructure facilitates the collection of data on student performance and learning at a resolution that far exceeds what is currently available. We believe that such an infrastructure will accelerate the acquisition of knowledge and skills critical to professional engineering practice, while facilitating the study of how this acquisition comes about, yielding insights that may lead to significant changes in pedagogy.
On the Performance of Blind Chip Rate Estimation in Multi-Rate CDMA Transmissions Using Multi-Rate Sampling in Slow Flat Fading Channels  [PDF]
Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) , 2009, DOI: 10.4236/wsn.2009.12011
Abstract: This paper considers blind chip rate estimation of DS-SS signals in multi-rate and multi-user DS-CDMA systems over channels having slow flat Rayleigh fading plus additive white Gaussian noise. Channel impulse response is estimated by a subspace method, and then the chip rate of each signal is estimated using zero crossing of estimated differential channel impulse response. For chip rate estimation of each user, an algorithm which uses weighted zero-crossing ratio is proposed. Maximum value of the weighted zero crossing ratio takes place in the Nyquist rate sampling frequency, which equals to the twice of the chip rate. Furthermore, bit time of each user is estimated using fluctuations of autocorrelation estimators. Since code length of each user can be obtained using bit time and chip time ratio. Fading channels reduce reliability factor of the proposed algo-rithm. To overcome this problem, a receiver with multiple antennas is proposed, and the reliability factor of the proposed algorithm is analyzed over both spatially correlated and independent fading channels.

querelles-net , 2008,
Abstract: Gibt es einen Anspruch des Menschen auf physische und psychische Integrit t? Wie hat sich ein solcher Anspruch entwickelt und auf welchen Grunds tzen kann er beruhen? Das Menschenrecht auf die Unversehrtheit des K rpers wird im vorliegenden Sammelband sowohl aus geschichtlicher, literaturtheoretischer, politischer als auch aus islamwissenschaftlicher, soziologischer und juristischer Perspektive beleuchtet. Dabei setzen sich die Autoren und Autorinnen mit den derzeit vorliegenden Argumentationsfiguren zur Begründung der Menschenrechte als elementarem Recht auseinander und leisten mit ihren Analysen, Kritiken und Konfrontationen einen innovativen Beitrag zu den aktuellen Debatten um Folter, k rperlicher Unversehrtheit und Verantwortung. Do humans have an entitlement to physical and psychic integrity? How did such entitlement develop and on what basic tenants does it rest? The collected volume at hand illuminates the human right to physical integrity from the perspective of history, literary theory, politics as well as Islamic studies, sociology, and law. The authors approach current arguments justifying human rights as a fundamental right. Their analyses, critiques, and confrontations provide an innovative contribution to the current debates on torture, physical integrity, and accountability.
