Abstract

Mental and physical health of students is important objects of every society, because their health ensures scientific progression and development. The current study was aimed to estimate the anaerobic power in two ways Sargent jump and run 45 meters and the factors influencing them among selected male and female students of Qazvin University of Medical Sciences. This was an analytical cross-sectional study among 110 students who participated in the study that were selected randomly. To measure anaerobic power, Sargent jump and run 45-meter test was used. In order to analyze the factors affecting anaerobic power test, independent t-test and ANOVA with a significance level of 0.05 was conducted, and also to examine the relationship between two tests Pearson correlation test was used. Data analysis showed that sex, weight, height and body mass index in Sargent jump and sex and weight in 45 meters test are significant. Pearson correlation test between anaerobic power test results are positive and significant relationship (r= 0.83 and P<0.001), respectively. The overall results of this study showed a high correlation between the two methods. Also, variables such as sex and weight in both tests showed significant association in the mean anaerobic power.

Abstract

Pakistan is famous due to its agriculture sector, due to this reason we have analyzed the different determinants on the progress of FD I. For this purpose, we have taken data from the year 1998 to 2008 an applied the OLS model. We have taken, the results that trade and GDP both have a positive association with the FDI inflows and agriculture sector and Government debt and exchange rate has the negative relationship whereas inflation has the positive relationship. This paper suggests that government should make policies to for the promotion of agriculture sector.

Abstract

Among the work-related risk factors in different industries exposure to chemicals can be mentioned that can have irreparable danger to staff. Therefore, to reduce the risk of exposure to chemicals in the workplace, risk assessment takes place. Thus, the aim of the present study is to study the semi-quantitative risk of chemicals. This study was conducted using semi-quantitative risk assessment method provided by the Singapore Ministry of Labor Health and Safety Unit in Olefin unit of one of the petrochemical industries located in Special Zone Asalooyeh in 2015. Seven chemical substances are identified in this unit that only one of them (14.2 percent) has a high risk level. The results showed that in this unit Sodium hydroxide (caustic) with quantitative risk level of 4.3has the highest risk factor. For this reason, control measures should be used to reduce the risk of exposure to sodium hydroxide.

Abstract

In this paper, we have found out the impact of foreign direct investment on the development of Pakistan and Azerbaijan. We have utilized the secondary data for accord results. Our results showed that ratio of foreign direct investment is high in few countries and also low due to terrorism. In 1992, the inflow of foreign direct investment is high at the same year inflows in Azerbaijan were at the poor rate. In the year 2009, the inflows in Pakistan were 245.45 US dollars while in Azerbaijan the inflows were nothing. Our paper is trying to explore that most revenue area in business are education and information technology. On the other side, our paper is also trying to show that foreign direct investment is backbone of the economy. Therefore, we suggested that Pakistan and Azerbaijan should remove such factors which have an impact on the foreign direct investment.

Abstract

The purpose of this paper to analysis the impact of crude oil on the stock exchange of Pakistan. For this purpose, we have taken the data from 15 years and applied the Karl Pearson’s Coefficient of Correlation and taken the results that decrease the value of crude oil have negative impact on the stock exchange of Pakistan. This paper is trying to show that In all over the world oil is known as the more crucial source of energy. Oil prices are known as the biggest need of every country due to this reason prices brings effect on the performance of the country. Now the days the prices of oil as important as the gold prices. The world largest commodity market is known as the crude market. Our paper is also showing that increase in the prices of crude oil is the reason of inflation.

Abstract

Nigerians are increasingly losing hope and confidence in the nation’s judicial system because of the unethical conduct of some judicial rascals. Some judgements have brought embarrassment to the nation. Verdicts are no longer based on facts of law. Through indirect observation: reading newspapers, listening to news on TV, It is established that a large number of judgements delivered were based on rule of men, and status differentials instead of rule of law. It is recommended that the judiciary be urgently overhauled with a view to flushing out the bad eggs or the judicial rascals.

Abstract

Using descriptive method of data gathering: qualitative analysis of data from secondary source, the study x-rays the performance of the parliament at the federal and state levels between 1999 and 2016 to see whether it has enhanced good governance in the country. The study implicates corruption as the major reason for the ineffectiveness of this arm of government. It is therefore imperative to alter the nation’s leadership recruitment process such that patriotically-minded and unblemished Nigerians will be attracted into politics and contest for parliamentary positions.

Abstract

Nigeria remains a creeping giant today due to the alien and expensive political arrangement that creates the opportunity for elite conspiracy which impoverishes the masses and underdevelops the country. Using descriptive method of data gathering, the study reveals that western democracy cannot work in Nigeria irrespective of how educated the population is because of the deep seated corruption, primordial sentiment, ethnic and religious prejudice as well as lawlessness. A revolutionary leadership is needed to fashion out a workable and effective political system such as Africasian democracy that would suit the Nigerian society and respond to the infrastructural needs of the masses.

Abstract

Nowadays, one of the major issues in wireless sensor networks (WSNs) is data security. Often, data security issue is associated with data aggregation. Using this kind of network in sensitive areas, especially in military environments, without contemplating data security creates main problems. A great number of researches have been conducted in recent years. For example, issues such as coding and use of key and optimum routing based on data security have been taken into consideration. Each method makes use of different parameters that have created strengths and weaknesses. The present research is intended to consider the new ideas presented in this field. Then, to contribute to strengths and weaknesses existing in these methods, we present new ideas. The routine is to study new methods in a valid research. Issues such as data integration, individual or multiple data transfer, the impact of genetic algorithms on data security, encoding and cryptography, secure data aggregation based on fuzzy logic, etc have been discussed thoroughly.

Abstract

Process industries have always been exposed to fire, explosion and release of chemical materials. To identify and evaluate risk in process industries including oil and gas, there are various methods in which hazard and operability study (HAZOP) is one of the most common methods. To do this, at first all organizational duties and unit activities are identified. Then, the study technique of operation and risk is used as an effective and sys thematic method to identify risk and operating problems and the relevant effects. The identified activities in risk assessment are applied. The results of evaluation of identified risks showed that 6 cases had hazard higher than 15 and it is not acceptable. In terms of risk intensity, the highest frequency of unacceptable risks (4 cases) is observed in “reformer heating chamber”. The analysis of consequence of hazards showed that for 6 hazardous points, independent layers of protection can reduce risk as 100% to target factor (10-5) and safety integrity level is fulfilled completely.

Abstract

In recent years, there are technological growth and the acceleration of industrial development. Although this rapid progress plays a significant role in increasing productivity and economic prosperity, but it also creates new challenges such as health, safety and environment issues. These issues are most evident in developing countries because in order to increase production, regardless of preventive safety principles, standards, working hours, training workers and the use of proper personal protective equipment to workers are addressing excessive pressure on workers. The most people of the world (58%), spend one-third of their life in the workplace. According to the ILO hundreds of thousands of workers are seeing serious injury. Hamalaynyn et al. 98 estimated that about 350,000 fatal occupational accidents and 264 million work-related non-fatal accidents occur. However, economic valuation and pricing of the life is nothing in the last three decades and has been done using new methods. Health, safety and environment management system which is responsible for all matters relating to occupational health, environment and industrial safety of industries. HSE plays a great role in developing of countries through the basics of systematic and various factors related to health, safety and the environment. Applying the principles of HSE management can reduce costs of the employee’s absence, employee's claim and product low quality etc. Implementation of these principles is significant in two aspects: 1. Determining the causes of accidents, diseases and injuries and 2. The impact of these principles on the organization economy. In fact, HSE is an added value for organizations.
