Open Journal of Social Sciences (JSS) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/jss.2014.26058
Abstract: Migration has been a courageous expression of the individual’s will to overcome adversity and to live a better life. Today, globalization, together with advances in communications and transportation, has greatly increased the number of people who have the desire and the capacity to move to other places. The evidence shows that due to flow of remittances the economic status of the families but on the other hand it also has a profound impact on families left behind. They have to face many problems. In this study, an effort has been made to understand the possible impact of migration on families left behind. This study was carried out in District Gujrat of Punjab Pakistan. Purposed sampling technique has been used to select the sample. The findings of the study suggest that male migration has a profound impact on families left behind especially on their spouse and children.

Abstract: The study was aimed to explore the attitude of young people towards politics and political activities. The purpose was to determine the level of interest and political engagement of the youth. The study was based on the background of the current political scenario and the role of youth in the current circumstances. The involvement of youth in politics is crucial in this situation; therefore, the study of youth behavior is an effort to get an insight into their views and their role. Other objective of the study was to understand the voting behavior of young people as it is quite an important factor in promoting the democracy. Yet another aim was to see the perception of youth about politicians and political parties. And ultimately the study investigated the level of satisfaction of young people towards policies of the present government. The study is quantitative in nature. A sample of 178 students was chosen from the University of Sargodha through proportionate stratified sampling method. The universe was divided into strata and then the respondents were selected by applying simple random sampling method. The findings of the researches. It was clear that youth do have interest inpolitics; however, they are dissatisfied with the current political set up and disagree with the policies of the government. They are not optimistic about politicians and political parties. The research suggests that an environment of trust should be created by the politicians where youth can express their concerns and could engage themselves in decision making.

Abstract: Scheduling involves the allocation of resources and time to tasks in such a way that certain performance requirements are met. CPU scheduling is the mechanisms of selecting a process among various processes and allocate a processor in such a way so that other processes in a ready queue wait for minimum amount of time. This is usually done by short term scheduler. In a uniprocessor system where only one process may run at a time, any other process must wait until the CPU is free and rescheduled. This article discusses briefly about a more efficient way to scheduling which I termed as ‘JAMM’ scheduling. My experimental result has shown that it reduces the sufficient amount of average waiting time among processes.
International Male Migration and Its Impact on Education of Children and Wives Left Behind: Evidence from Punjab Pakistan  [PDF]

Open Journal of Social Sciences (JSS) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/jss.2014.26054
Abstract: It is observed that international migration is a growing phenomenon and has got considerable attention. It has profound effects on the source countries. In the present study, an effort has been made to identify the possible impact of migration on families left behind, with special focus on children’s education and females. Migration of labor mobility affects the education of the family members in many ways i.e. remittance enables the migrant families to spend more amount on education, many problems faced by the wives of migrant left behind regarding the education of their children and work load. In-depth interviews were conducted from the respondents for the collection of data. The preliminary findings of the study show that emigration has left deep social-economic impacts on life standards of families left behind in Gujrat.
New Fourth and Fifth-Order Iterative Methods for Solving Nonlinear Equations  [PDF]
Muhammad Saqib, Muhammad Iqbal, Shahid Ali, Tariq Ismaeel
Applied Mathematics (AM) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/am.2015.68114
Abstract: In this paper, we establish two new iterative methods of order four and five by using modified homotopy perturbation technique. We also present the convergence analysis of these iterative methods. To assess the validity and performance of these iterative methods, we have applied to solve some nonlinear problems.

Frequency of Bcr-Abl Fusion Oncogene Splice Variants Associated with Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (CML)  [PDF]
Zafar Iqbal, Fatima Manzoor, Mudassar Iqbal, Shahid Ali, Nadeem Sheikh, Mahwish Khan, Aamer Aleem, Tanveer Akhtar
Journal of Cancer Therapy (JCT) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/jct.2011.22022
Abstract: BCR-ABL fusion oncogene originates from the reciprocal translocation of chromosome 9 and 22 t(9;22) (q34;q11). It translates a chimeric protein, p210, characterized by constitutive activation of its tyrosine kinase, which triggers leukemogenic pathways resulting in onset of chronic myeloid leukemia (CML). In CML, the classic fusion is b2a2 or b3a2 fusing exon 13 (b2) or exon 14 (b3) of BCR to exon 2 (a2) of ABL. The type of bcr/abl transcripts may be associated with different prognosis and hence useful in therapeutic plan. This study was conducted to calculate the frequency of these splice variants as the frequencies of different fusion oncogenes associated with leukaemia can vary in different geographical regions due to interplay of genetic variation in different ethnic populations, diverse environmental factors and living style. A very sensitive nested RT-PCR was established to detect BCR-ABL splice variants in CML. Sensitivity of RT-PCR assay was of the order of 10–6. Thirty CML patients were subjected to BCR-ABL analysis. Out of 30 Pakistani patients, 19 (64%) expressed b3a2 while 11 (36%) expressed b2a2 transcript. This shows that BCR-ABL splice variants differ in their frequencies which may have an effect on biology and implications for prognosis and management of BCR-ABL positive Leukemias.

Asian Journal of Plant Sciences , 2008,
Abstract: Studies were conducted on eighteen genotypes of black gram (Vigna mungo) to evaluate their comparative performance under rainfed conditions. Highly significant differences were observed for all the traits except leaf area which showed non-significant differences. Leaf area, pods plant-1, plant height and biological yield plant-1 showed high genotypic and phenotypic variances exhibiting greater variability in these traits. The magnitude of heritability was high for 100-seed weight (94%), pods plant-1 (91%), pod length (91%), biological yield (87%), grain yield (85%), days to maturity (80%), harvest index (76%), branches plant-1 (75%) and plant height (71%) indicating additive type of gene action. Pods plant-1, branches plant-1 and biological yield plant-1 showed highly significant and positive correlation with grain yield showing that these traits have good positive effect on grain yield. Selection of genotypes on the basis of these traits can be useful. The present study enabled to identify early to medium duration lines without losing grain weight and yield potential.

Abstract: Industrialization is considered to be one of the most important tires of economic development in Pakistan. However, rapid unplanned industrialization without social and environment impact assessment is creating serious problems for human environment. Worse and directly affected in this process are the industrial workers,who are directly exposed to physical and social environment of the industry. This study “Effects of Industrial Environment on Health Status of Workers” was designed to examine the effects of industrial environment on health status of workers. Major objective of research project was to explore the impact of social and physical environment of the industry on the health status of the workers. This study was conducted at Noon Sugar Mill Bhalwal. Two hundred and fifty respondents were selected from various departments by using multistage simple random sampling. A well-structured questionnaire was used as a tool for data collection. The chi- square test was applied to test the relationship between variables of hypothesis. Results of this study clearly indicated that health status of the workers was affected by the industrial social and physical environment. Workers were found suffering from psychological problems like anxiety and depression and also reported problems dueto night shift work, little salary and noisy environment. Majority of workers reports having a difficult relation with the boss. They also hold the opinion that the supervisor does not take care for the workers. The research recommends that facilities related to health, education etc. should be provided to all workers and physical work load should be decreased.
