Abstract:Facing the curriculum reform centered on student core literacy, its success or failure depends not only on the scientific formulation of curriculum standards. The key lies in the effectiveness of curriculum implementation after the revision of curriculum standards. Teachers are the subjects of course implementation and teaching is the main channel for curriculum implementation. The degree of teacher\'s teaching adaptation of new course directly affects the quality of course implementation, and teacher teaching adaptability determines the degree of teacher\'s teaching adaptation. In order to improve the teaching adaptability of teachers to improve the quality of the new course implementation. This paper used both data analysis and interview methods. Via the theoretical exploration of the connotation and mechanism of teacher teaching adaptability and teachers explore the theoretical framework of teaching adaptability in information technology. The research topic is the \"Opinions on Deepening the Curriculum Reform and Implementing the Fundamental Tasks of Morality Education\" issued by the Ministry of Education, interviewed 32 teachers. After finishing the teachers\' clear understanding of the subject based on the relevant concepts, teaching adaptation can be achieved, and finally the mechanism of teacher teaching adaptability is analyzed.
Abstract:Buffalos are an important domestic animal in various countries for producing meat, fat, and milk. Therefore, the current study was designed to evaluate the quality attributes of Biceps femoris and Semitendinosus muscles in addition to mesenteric, subcutaneous fat, and kidney fats obtained from fifteen Bubalus bubalis buffalos slaughtered above 5 years old. Buffalo’s meat was subjected to proximate chemical analysis, determination of soluble proteins, collagen content & solubility, total pigments, and myoglobin content. Besides, the buffalo’s fats were examined for peroxide value, TBARS, melting point, and fatty acid analysis. The proximate chemical analysis showed that the moisture content of the Biceps femoris muscle was significantly (P<0.05) higher than that of the Semitendinosus muscle. Biceps femoris muscle was significantly (P<0.05) lower in fat, protein, ash, total soluble, and sarcoplasmic proteins than that of Semitendinosus muscle. Collagen content was significantly (P<0.05) lower while collagen solubility was significantly (P<0.05) higher than those of Semitendinosus muscle. The mean values for the total pigments were 199.24 and 202 ppm for Biceps femoris and Semitendinosus muscles respectively. The peroxide value of kidney fat was significantly (P<0.05) higher than those from mesenteric fat and subcutaneous fat. The mean values for TBARS (mg malonaldehyde/kg) were 0.35, 0.40 & 0.33 for kidney, subcutaneous and mesenteric fats respectively. The mean values of the melting point were non-significantly (P< 0.05) differ between different investigated fats with mean values of 51.22, 32.67and 44.27 respectively. The fatty acids profile revealed significant differences between examined fats.
Abstract:An 89-year-old female with diabetes mellitus presented due to repeated vomiting. Her medical history included an anterior resection due to rectal cancer at age 78 y. She was diagnosed with type 1 progressive gastric cancer of the antrum at age 83 y despite no rectal cancer, and she was being followed up without undergoing surgery at another hospital. As she also developed type 4 progressive esophageal cancer and type 3 progressive gastric cancer of the angulus at age 89 y, she was diagnosed with asynchronous triple organ cancers of the esophagus, the stomach (angulus and antrum), and the rectum. We conservatively managed all three cancers, and even though vomiting stopped temporarily after stent placement for esophageal cancer, aspiration pneumonia occurred. Therefore, a direct percutaneous endoscopic jejunostomy (PEJ) was performed to provide nutritional support. However, she died 11 weeks after PEJ due to congestive heart failure at the age of 90 y.
Abstract:The present study aimed to evaluate the mathematical modelling of the drying kinetics, as well as to determine the effective diffusivity coefficient and the activation energy during the drying process of germinated pumpkin seeds. The drying experiments were performed in a fixed-bed dryer at temperatures of 50, 60 and 70 °C and air speeds of 0.7, 1.0 and 1.3 m s-1. The experimental data were fitted to different thin-layer drying mathematical models compared based on their coefficient of determination, mean-square deviation and chi-square. Effective diffusivity coefficients, calculated using the liquid diffusion mathematical model, were used to obtain the activation energy. The results showed that in at previous mentioned conditions temperature was found as major controlling factor of the drying process of germinated pumpkin seeds in comparison to drying air speed, where that the increase in temperature led to reduction in seed drying time and increment in water removal rate. The models of Approximation of Diffusion, Two Terms, Midilli et al., Page and Thompson showed the best fit to the experimental data of drying. Effective moisture diffusivity ranged between 1.75 and 3.70 × 10-10 m2 s-1, for the drying conditions of v = 0.7 m s-1, T = 50 °C and v = 1.3 m s-1, T = 70 °C, respectively. The temperature dependence of the effective diffusivity followed an Arrhenius relationship, and the activation energy for the drying of germinated pumpkin seeds varied from 2.73 to 8.11 kJ mol-1. This discovery is especially relevant for future applications of germinated pumpkin seeds, as it provides indispensable information for the appropriate choice of drying conditions.
Abstract:This study explores the interests, process, procedures, wishes, wills and the impacts of sports participation, activities and events conducted by the school management at their schools. The Qualitative research design and method was employed to collect data from (n = 28) high school teachers through semi-structured interviews and field-work observations. The interview protocol was discussed in a group of field experts and then finalized and piloted on the school teachers of Hyderabad district of Sindh, Pakistan. School heads’ were found non-democratic with fears of being involved in corruption due to illegal and un-ethical demands of the district accounts office and audit team, that’s why they found hesitate to do utilize their school budgets efficiently and effectively. Because many of them do not know their duties, rights and responsibilities; powers and authorities well.
Abstract:Background and purpose: Neck pain (NP) is a common symptom among smartphone addicted users and it is associated with increasing disability. This study was conducted to compare the effect of different muscles training protocols on NP and disability in smartphone addicted users. Materials and methods: Random assignment of participants was onto 3 equal groups. Group A received deep cervical flexors (DCF) training exercises, group B received McKenzie neck training exercises and group C received combined training. Treatment was given for 4 weeks. We evaluated NP using visual analog scale (VAS), while neck disability (ND) was evaluated using neck disability index (NDI). Results: Pre-treatment ANOVA showed no significant differences in NP (P= 0.920) and ND (P= 0.972). On the other hand, post-treatment, there were statistically significant differences among the 3 groups in NP (P<0.001) and ND (P=0.006). The percentage of reduction in NP was 38.46% for group A, 40.92% for group B and 58.47% for group C. While the percentage of reduction in ND was 33.55% for group A, 35.19% for group B and 42.67% for group C. Conclusion: Cervical training protocol that include both DCF muscle training and McKenzie neck training was more effective in reducing NP and ND than the protocols that used either DCF muscle training or McKenzie neck training alone in smartphone addicted users.

The aim of this study was to evaluate the Effectiveness of Training classes in improving Organizational Culture, Beliefs, and Implementation of Evidence- Based Practice among nurses \nat Egyptian Liver Research Institute and Hospital. A quazi- experimental research design was used. This study was carried out in the Egyptian Liver Research Institute and Hospital. Study subjects included all staff nurses in aforementioned setting with a total number of 50 nurses. Data collection tools were questionnaires included the measures of organizational culture, EBP beliefs, and its implementation. Results revealed that mean score of organizational culture of evidence-based practice was significantly modified from 57.92 before the training sessions\' implementation to 74.56 after implementation and 80.84 in follow up stage (p<0.001). Moreover, EBP Beliefs had significant improvement from 45.76 to 52.28 after implementation and reach to 55.14 in follow up stage (p<0.001.) Also, EBP implementation significantly enhanced from 19.50 to 26.68 and more enhanced in follow up stage to 34.60. Conclusion: The training\' sessions was an effective strategy in enhancing EBP culture, beliefs, and its implementation among nurses. It was recommended that the hospital should emphasis persistency of integrating EBP into daily clinical nursing care, and developing of EBP mentors and champions.
Abstract:A 61-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital due to bilateral leg edema secondary to hypoproteinemia and iron deficiency anemia. Endoscopy of the upper gastrointestinal tract revealed no polyps, whereas endoscopy of the lower gastrointestinal tract revealed more than 200 adenomatous polyps complicated with adenocarcinoma from the cecum to the rectum. Her elder brother was also diagnosed with colorectal adenomatous polyposis at another hospital thereafter. She was clinically diagnosed with familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP), although no genetic examinations were performed. Infusion of albumin and iron drug did not improve hypoproteinemia and iron deficiency anemia. No extraintestinal manifestations were detected, and the patient was transferred to another hospital to undergo colectomy for FAP.
Abstract:This study is an extension of a series of our previous works of message scheduling related to the controller area network, including theoretical analysis, hardware implementation, and integrations of both issues. This paper presents a heavy-traffic analysis of the behavior of a single server multi-queue model with an Earliest-Deadline-First (EDF) scheduling policy, in which queued messages have specific deadlines before service. With the EDF as the queue selection rule (QSR), messages in queues are selected for admission into the service facility. In this sense, this study focuses on mathematical analysis of the queue service probability (QSP), under the conditions of multi-queue, finite capacity, and timing constraints in the overload situation. The closed form expressions of the optimal queue service probabilities not only provide particular insight for normal load and overload problems, but yield an explicit and detailed characterization of the message waiting times and other interesting quantities. The QSP of two existing scheduling policies, First-Come First-Served (FCFS) and Priority Queueing (PQ), are derived from the results of QSP of EDF scheduling policy under certain conditions.
Abstract:- To assess the correlation coefficient between different phenotypic characteristics of genotypes of wheat (Khirman and Inqalab) and different concentrations of H2O2 ( 0, 20,40, 60, 100 ?M) under salinity levels (0 and 100 mM NaCl). The changes leaded to physiological characteristics that enhanced stress, promoted the development of salinity. H2O2 significantly improved the germination and plant growth exhibited under normal water irrigation. The correlation coefficient among various phenotypic traits. The extent of the relationship showed positive correlation among straw weight and shoot biomass. However a treatment unit raised the seed index. These t values are higher than the book value, estimated at 5% probability level and showed that the correlations were very significant, except for the t value of the seed index versus the treatment below the non significant book value. Antioxidant assay was significantly affected by genotypes and salinity in the experimental data for various morphologic and physiological characteristics. In seedlings, H2O2 signal seed antioxidant activation continued to compensate for oxidative harm caused by ion. Statistical analysis of agronomic traits in wheat might be informative since correlation genotypes of wheat represented different agronomic traits of gene effects.
