Sumya Tabassum, Afzal Hossain
Intelligent Control and Automation (ICA) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/ica.2018.93005
Abstract: Weather plays an important role in our farming system. In greenhouse or internal farming system, weather monitoring is important. For better production and maintenance, it is important to monitor. This project is developed for forecasting weather parameters like humidity, temperature, soil moisture, and raid detection. Humidity and temperature are monitored for internal temperature. The soil is the most important part of a greenhouse. In this project, soil moisture level is monitored and controlled for maintaining soil moisture level. Rain detection is used in outside of the farm. It detects rainwater and sends a message to the server. It is monitored by using a local server. In remote routing area, it also can be monitored and controlled without physical existence. Also, it is a low-cost weather monitoring system for the agro farm. The Raspberry Pi is a low cost, credit-card sized computer that plugs into a computer monitor or TV, and uses a standard keyboard and mouse. The monitoring system could be designed by using the sensor. It is useful for forecasting and data analysis process. In this project weather forecasting system is designed by using a sensor. In this project, Raspberry Pi work like a remote monitoring and controlling system for the agro farm.

Abstract: Objective: To evaluate the effects of epidural analgesia on the painrelief and maternal and fetal outcome. Study design: Comparative & analytical study. Place and Duration: In MilitaryHospital Rawalpindi from Oct 1998 to Oct 1999. Patients and Method: 100 full term healthy primigravida admitted forinduction of labour. Fifty patients were given epidural analgesia and 50 served as control to whom no analgesia wasgiven. Outcome measures observed were duration of labour, mode of delivery; Apgar score of the newborn; untowardreaction and intra-partum complications. Results: The data analysis revealed that epidural analgesia significantlyprolonged labour time and was associated with increased instrumental delivery rate. Significant reduction in intra-partumfetal complications was seen, while C-section rate was not effected by epidural analgesia. Apgar scores were higherin analgesia group as compared to control. Conclusion: Although accused of prolonging labour time, it’s benefits interms of great maternal satisfaction and reduced intra-partum complications still makes it an option for labouringpatients.
The impact of social support on work-to-family and family-to-work conflict: An analysis on the female primary school teachers of Bangladesh
Tabassum, Ayesha
International Journal of Research Studies in Management , 2012,
Abstract: Employed women usually face work-family conflict, as they need to maintain both the work and family responsibilities. In Bangladesh, a large number of educated women are employed as female teachers in the primary education sector. Like any other sector, these primary school teachers are also expected to have a significant amount of work-family conflict. Literature review suggests that social support, i.e. support from supervisor, co-worker, spouse, and family members can significantly reduce two types of work-family conflict; (a) work-to-family conflict and (b) family-to-work conflict. Based on this background the current study initiated to investigate how social support from supervisor, co-workers, life partner, and family members is associated with work–family conflicts in N = 90 female primary school teachers. A structured questionnaire was used as a mean primary source of data collection. Results revealed that spouse support and family support was negatively related with family-work conflict, though no negative relation were found between supervisor support and work-family conflict, and co-worker support and work-family conflict.

Journal of Agricultural Science , 2011, DOI: 10.5539/jas.v3n1p239
Abstract: Stripe rust (yellow rust), caused by Puccinia striiformis f. sp. tritici is one of the most damaging diseases of wheat in Pakistan. Lack of durable resistance in local wheat varieties is the main reason for stripe rust epidemic which could limit yields. The use of genetically resistant wheat varieties is the most economic way of controlling the disease. Evaluation of 135 advance wheat lines for slow yellow rusting was conducted during cropping season 2008-2009 under natural epidemics at field locations of Ayub Agriculture Research Institute, Faisalabad and Cereal Crops Research Institute, Pirsabak (Northwest), Pakistan. Resistance level based on final disease severity (FDS) along with other slow rusting parameters relative area under disease progress curve (rAUDPC) and relative infection rate (RIR) was assessed. A total of 25 wheat lines were identified to potentially have durable resistance with low frequency of disease severity (10-30%) and lower relative AUDPC values (2-66%). Based on the slowing rusting data, RAPD (random amplified polymorphic DNA) primers were used in order to evaluate genetic diversity among 25 lines. Of 20 OPA (Operon series) primers tested, 4 (20%) primers were polymorphic that showed amplification differences among 25 genotypes. OPA-06 and OPA-04 revealed the highest polymorphism (67% and 50%) while OPA-02 and OPA-17 exhibited the lowest polymorphism (33% and 25%) respectively. From the amplification profile, a total of five RAPD markers were obtained in this study. A similarity matrix data depicted that most of these genotypes are genetically very close (60-100%). The 25 advance lines identified from slow rusting evaluation with five RAPD markers may have partial resistance genes and can be used as slow yellow rusting lines with longer field life in Pakistan breeding program.

Azizuddin Khan, Eleni Fleva, Tabassum Qazi
Psychology (PSYCH) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/psych.2015.61010
Abstract: Teachers’ self-efficacy is assumed to be affected by self-esteem and teachers’ general self-efficacy. Self-esteem is considered to be a trait reflecting an individual’s characteristic affective evaluation of self (Gist & Mitchell, 1992). The current study explores the factors that would affect teachers’ efficacy in cultural context. In the current study 200 teachers participated from various public schools. Multivariate analysis of variance and correlational analysis were employed to understand the effect of self-esteem and self-efficacy on teachers’ efficacy. The results indicated significant relationship between teachers’ efficacy and general self-efficacy and self-esteem. It was found that low self-esteem and low general self-efficacy led to low teachers’ efficacy and consequently substandard performance in the class. On the contrary, high teachers’ efficacy was a reflection of high self-esteem and high general self-efficacy. Self-esteem influenced only in decision making, perceived education self-efficacy, perceived disciplinary self-efficacy, ability to get cooperation from community, and in the development of positive school environment of teachers’ efficacy. General self-efficacy influenced all the components of teachers’ efficacy except decision making and ability to influence school council/authorities. In the study, it was observed that self-esteem significantly influenced teachers’ efficacy.

Open Journal of Pediatrics (OJPed) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ojped.2015.52019

Objectives: This was to estimate the proportion of Dengue virus specific IgG ELISA among asymptomatic children between the ages of 1 year to 15 years, residing in an urban population of Karachi. Design: Cross-sectional study. Settings: Subjects were selected from Garden, Karachi; an urban area located adjacent to the Central district of Karachi. Participants: Children of ages 1 year to 15 years, of either sex, residing in the urban area of Garden, Karachi for more than 1 year were selected for the study. Those with a history of yellow fever or using corticosteroids within 1 month of recruitment were excluded. Outcome measures: Data were collected on socioeconomic status of households, medical history, including previous dengue infection, general examination findings and anthropometric indices. Blood samples were collected and sent to Research Laboratories, AKU for determining complete blood counts and serum IgG antibodies for Dengue. All collected information was then analyzed for ascertaining the predicting factors for positive IgG among children less than 15 years. Results: From a total of 900 subjects, 46% were found to have positive IgG in their bloods. Our results revealed that a male child of age more than 10 years was more likely to be IgG positive. Other risk factors identified with the seropositivity included lower household income and absence of anemia, thrombocytopenia and lack of hand washing. Conclusions: The study indicated a significant proportion of children under 15-year-old infected with Dengue virus, with a potential risk of severe complications, if re-infected with dengue. Stringent measures are still needed by both public and private authorities to contain dengue outbreaks, and reducing the proportion of associated mortality, as seen in the previous years. Trial registration: Seed Money Grant (ID# SM090101) was awarded to the corresponding author by Research Committee, Faculty of Health Sciences, Aga Khan University, Pakistan.

Optimization and Security of Continuous Anonymizing Data Streams
S. Nasira Tabassum
International Journal of Engineering and Advanced Technology , 2012,
Abstract: The characteristic of data stream is that it has a huge size and its data change continually, which needs to be responded quickly, since the times of query is limited. The continuous query and data stream approximate query model are introduced in this paper. Then, the query optimization of data stream and traditional database are compared such as k-anonymity methods, are designed for static data sets. As such, they cannot be applied to streaming data which are continuous, transient, and usually unbounded. Moreover, in streaming applications, there is a need to offer strong guarantees on the maximum allowed delay between incoming data and the corresponding anonymized output. Continuously Anonymizing Streaming data via adaptive cLustEring (CASTLE), an efficient and effective algorithm w.r.t. the quality of the data, is a cluster-based scheme that anonymizes data streams on-the-fly and, at the same time, ensures the freshness of the data. CASTLE is also extended to handle l-diversity. Finally, we study the optimization and security techniques of data streams using selective security encryption and compression to improve the efficiency of the CASTLE algorithm.
