Norlyiana Samsuri, Tahamina Begum, Faruque Reza, Hazim Omar, Nasir Yusoff, Badrisyah Idris and Salmi Mohd Isa

To determine the cognitive function of consumers during advertisement is important in respect to different display design to improve the selling of product. Our previous studies were focused on lateral views, this time we aimed to detect the level of attention and gaze behavior on diverse display settings of auto advertising using the event related potential (ERP) and the eye tracking techniques among 15 healthy volunteers. The ERPs were done using 128-sensor net. Subjects pushed button ‘1...

Harold Adjarko, John Gemadzie and Kofi Agyekum

The Act 490 mandates the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in Ghana to regulate the environment and ensure the implementation of government policies on the environment. The law mandates the EPA to ad infinitum improve and preserve the countries environment, while seeking solutions to global environmental issues. However by focusing only on large scale contracts, as is currently the case, the battle with the environment cannot be won through the EPA. Despite the existence of the EPA,...

Binukumari, S. Anusiya Devi, K. and Vasanthi, J.

The assessment of the ecotoxicological risks caused by pesticides to ecosystems is based on data on the toxicity and effects of pesticide preparations to non-target organisms. Fish are among the group of non-target aquatic organisms. Responses of aquatic organisms are broad-ranged depending on the toxic compound, exposure time, water quality and the species. Monocrotophos is one of the organophosphorous pesticide used in this study. The median lethal concentration (LC 50) of MC to fish L....

Molecular sieve dehydration: A major development in the field of ethanol dehydration to produce fuel ethanol
Nilesh, P. Patil, Vilas, S. Patil and Shashikant, L. Bhole

Gasohol, a blend of ethanol and gasoline is a promising alternative to gasoline and has a great potential to come up as an environmentally clean fuel. Though anhydrous ethanol has various advantages, its generation is quite a difficult and costly task. The energy intensive technology ultimately results in an increased per liter production cost of bioethanol. Though the technology is costly, it is not capable of producing purely anhydrous ethanol. To be competitive, and find technical,...
