Abstract : The suprascapular notch is located on the lateral part of the superior border of the scapula, medial to the coracoid process. It is covered by the superior transverse scapular ligament which gives passage to suprascapular nerve to supraspinous fossa. Suprascapular nerve entrapment may occur due to the different morphology of the suprascapular notch or due to ossification of the superior transverse scapular ligament. click here
 The suprascapular nerve passes through several osseoligamentous structures and can be compressed in several locations. Morphometric studies of suprascapular notch have been done in various studies. The aim of the present study is to review the morphometric studies of suprascapular notch, identify the most common type of notch. The suprascapular notch (SSN) is important, as it is major risk factor  for suprascapular nerve entrapment syndrome. The study was conducted at Apollo Institute of Medical Sciences,Hyderabad,Telangana State,India. Fifty scapulae were used for the study of the suprascapular notch anatomy which may help to prevent and to assess more accurately suprascapular nerve entrapment syndrome. Keywords : Suprascapular notch, Suprascapular nerve,  Suprascapular nerve entrapment, Scapula Anatomic classification.

Abstract : Policymaking is a political process which is affected by various social and  economic factor; media systems play an integral role in shaping the social context in which policies are developed.  click here
A sound and effective behavior change communication strategy should be based on an overarching vision of what needs to be achieved to address a particular issue. The strategy should be integrated, have a long-term focus, should be responsive to individual behavior change needs, and should maximize the potential for change on a broader societal level. Frameworks such as the PBC and the “P” Process for project design and implementation are useful tools to guide the process of developing policy communication strategies that get results. A combination of science, facts, vision, stakeholder buy-in, and audience participation is essential for success.

AbstractBackground: The aim of this study is to determine the incidence, clinical characteristics, treatment options and outcomes of ectopic pregnancy. Methods: In this study, a total of 474 ectopic pregnancy cases that was diagnosed and treated between 2011 and 2017 were retrospectively evaluated. All the related information including the details of demographic characteristics, clinical symptoms and findings, diagnostic tools used, treatment options, risk factors for ectopic pregnancy, outcome of treatment as well as associated morbidity and mortality were obtained from hospital patient database and saved in structured  data entry forms designed for this purpose. Ectopic pregnancy was diagnosed on direct ultrasound signs associated with an empty uterus and positive β-Hcg or on clinical signs associated with an empty uterus and suggestive β-hCG kinetics over several days. click here
 Results: A total of 6462 deliveries with 492 ectopic pregnancy diagnoses recorded and 474 of them were eligible for study and the incidence of ectopic pregnancy was found 7.6%. A great majority of the patients who constituted the study group was between 25-34 years 62.4% (296/474) and 31.6% (150/474) was primigravida. Abdominal and/or pelvic pain and amenorrhea were most consistent symptoms in 54 % and 24% of women respectively. Medical treatment with single dose methotrexate was applied to 342 (%72.2) patients and surgery was performed to 116 (24.5%) patients at first. Among the EP patients a death was observed. Conclusion: Ectopic pregnancy still considered being a major health problem so greater emphasis should be laid on prevention and early detection as to give patients opportunities for tubal conservation and decreasing surgical requirement.KEYWORDS: Ectopic pregnancy, Methotrexate, Surgical management, Salpingectomy, Salpingostomy

Abstract : This paper identifies the use of indigenous knowledge by small holder farmers in Kagadi district of Kibaale sub-region in South Western Uganda. The farmers here practice diverse farming systems and 51% practice either mixed farming  and / or intercropping.  click here
 The results clearly show that 67% of the small holder farmers still use indigenous knowledge in farming. 62% of the technical persons believe that food production and sustainability is due to use of indigenous agricultural knowledge by the local people of the rural communities carrying out mixed farming 71.8% grow crops and also look after domestic animals simultaneously. But all of them (100%) use indigenous knowledge in managing diseases and selection of seeds for planting the following season. They use indigenous knowledge in food security by growing “hard” crops like maize, cassava and beans. These crops have been turned into commercial crops which was not the primary intention originally. They still practice indigenous knowledge in produce quantity and quality, in disease control, in agro-ecosystems and soil fertility management among others. This paper concludes that despite many changes in the agricultural practices, most smallholder farmers use indigenous knowledge in farming mainly because this knowledge has been tested over generations.Keywords:   indigenous knowledge, smallholder farmers, diverse farming system, mixed farming.

AbstractTopographic surveying forms an integral part in land development issues. The techniques to produce those map/plans include traditional photogrammetry, satellite photogrammetry and terrestrial surveying using total station and or Global Positioning System (GPS) techniques. However, for the purpose of this project, GPS and conventional survey using total station are used together with photogrammetric techniques and their accuracies are analysed. GPS is used to establish ground control points for aerial triangulation in photogrammetry. click here
 Some selected portions within the campus of Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) are chosen to carry out this integration mapping techniques. Field surveying technique using total station is always adopted as a traditional method for planimetric plan production and mapping of urban and rural areas. However, both the conventional surveying techniques, GPS and photogrammetry could be used for surveying purposes but the accuracy and or techniques of each method differs from one another, hence in this project, both techniques are looked at in order to compare and draw some inferences. The main objectives are to produce topographic plan of the study area using engineering survey (i.e total station) and photogrammetric methods and subsequently, to perform a comparative analysis of the two surveying methods, in terms of quantitative analysis such as R.M.S, plannimetry(X, Y) and height (Z). The results obtained, shows that the differences between the two sets of coordinates(X, Y and Z) are not great. It ranges from a few millimetres (0.002mm) to centimetre level in plannimetry, from which, it can be deduced that spatial displacement or plannimetry (X and Y coordinates) of both conventional survey ( total station) and coordinates from stereo-model ( photogrammetry) are highly correlated and relatively smaller as compared to the displacement or differences in height or Z-values.

Abstract : Cross-border crime is seen as a common issue in any country where it should be taken care of by any government in a country to contain international security problems from being triggered. Observation through recent information and literature review found that cross border crime activities were also used as one of the methods for raising funds for terrorism. Human and trafficking, weapons smuggling and money laundering were among of the activities for terrorists to raise funds around Southeast Asia. click here
As an example, kidnapping activities in Sabah is believed to be one of the activities of militant groups in the Philippines in raising funds for their terrorist activities by earning ransom. As well as human trafficking happened which this activities also contribute to the funding of terrorist related activities that being active in Philippines. Secondary data collections are through literature review and observation from various sources such as news, online news and other trusted sources. Finding of this paper proved that the geographical of Malaysia has causes the arising of cross border crime which this directly has contributing to funding the terrorist related activities. This paper also found that the existence of corruption amongst the enforcement members also contributes to the ease of the border being accessible.

AbstractAflatoxins are highly toxic, mutagenic, teratogenic and carcinogenic kind of mycotoxin. Consumption of aflatoxin contaminated commodities poses serious hazard to the health of human and animals. This study aimed to determine the Aflatoxin level and storage fungi quality of export commodities of sesame, chickpeas and faba beans from Gondar town. click here
 The post harvest grain samples were collected randomly from different cleaning warehouses and 60 samples were taken for analysis. By taking 25gm composite sample from each collected samples followed by washing and surface sterilization serial dilution were done and the dilution were poured on PDA plates for isolation and identification of storage fungi. The prevalence of fungi were high in chickpeas and faba beans (60%) followed by sesame. Aspergillus niger (30%, 35% and 40%) and Aspergillus fumigatus (25%, 40% and 45%) were the most frequently isolates followed by Aspergillus flavus (15%, 35% and 25%) from sesame chickpea and faba bean samples.  Aflatoxin B1 was detected in 11 samples representing 10.33% and aflatoxin B2 was detected in 1 sample. The highest incidence of aflatoxin contamination occurred in Chickpea (25%) followed by sesame and faba bean (15% each) while no aflatoxin G1 and G2 contamination was detected in all samples. Therefore, low level of storage fungi contamination and AFs occurs frequently in sesame, chickpea and faba bean and can be improved using proper harvesting practices, storage and transportation conditions. The small quantities of AFs warrant performing further investigation, monitoring and routine analysis on regular basis.

Abstract: This study was designed to provide additional information on the roles and levels of some cytokines (interleukin-1β, interleukin-10), C-reactive protein, absolute white blood cells, red blood cell indices, Creatine kinase-MB and Troponin T circulating amongst Nigerian undergraduates’ pre and three hours post recovery stage of moderate exercise. click here
 A total of  77  healthy young undergraduates of Igbinedion University,Okada with an average age of 25.3 ± 4 years and body mass index of 26.7± 1.5(Kg/m2) participated fully in the randomized pre and post experimental study. The subjects took part in an endurance exercise by playing football for fifteen minutes. Hematological parameters were estimated using Sysmex® Automated Hematology Analyzer whereas; IL-1β, IL-10, CRP, TT, and CK-MB were estimated using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay methods. The levels of IL-1β, IL-10, CRP and Troponin-T were significantly elevated at three hour post exercise stage when compared with pre stage while the levels of TLC, AGC, ALC, MCH, MCV, MCHC and CK-MB shows no significant difference at three hour post exercise when compared with pre exercise stage. It may be concluded that moderate exercise enhances the immunological responses during the three hours post recovery stage of moderate exercise but should be performed with caution to prevent over-activation of IL-1β and CRP which are potent stimulators of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis.
KEYWORDS :   Moderate exercise, post-exercise stress, IL-1β, IL-10, CRP.
