Cytotoxic potentials of Orthosiphon stamineus leaf extracts against pathogenic bacteria and colon cancer cells
Aneesh Nair, Kiruthika, D., Dheeba, B. and Florida Tilton

Diwali Phytotherapy for various diseases is gaining importance owing to the lack of side-effects. Orthosiphon stamineus is a traditional herb with known medicinal properties. The present study was undertaken to carry out phytochemical, antimicrobial and anticancer studies on O. stamineus. The phytochemical screening revealed the presence of secondary metabolites. The total flavonoids content was found to be high in the hexane extract and total phenols in methanolic extract. The extracts were...

Removal of phenols from aqueous solutions using bi modified Jordanian diatomaceous clay
Salem. M. Musleh, Bilal Abu Zaitoon, Rushdi. I. Yousef and khalil M. Ibrahim

Modification of Jordanian diatomitaceous clay by aluminum chloride followed by treatment with cationic surfactants was carried out to enhance its capacity to remove phenols and its derivatives as organic pollutants from their aqueous solutions. The original sample and the modified derivatives were thoroughly characterized to check for the modification process by X-ray diffraction, X-ray fluorescence, scanning electron microscopy, total organic carbon, and Fourier transform infrared...

Effects of dietary protein level on growth performance, muscle composition and nitrogen excretion in juvenile...
Haicheng Yin, Feng Jia, Junjun Guan, Donghui Yang and Fangfen Ma

Quantification of the optimum dietary protein level for juvenile A. nigrocauda in relation to nutrition is important for commercial fish culture operations, and to estimate the muscle composition and changes nitrogen excretion for the fish, the fishes were fed with changing protein levels. Six experimental diets containing 30.01%, 34.57%, 39.63%, 44.75%, 49.52%, and 54.47% protein with 17.24 MJ/kg diet, respectively, were fed to three-replicate six groups of forty fish (mean weight: 16.30±0....

Analysis of tactical variants in men’s and women’s tennis doubles on the international level
Carboch, J., Kocib, T. and Pechacova, M.

There is no previous research in tennis doubles tactics and efficiency. There are several tactical variants for the serving team in tennis doubles; however the classical formation is mostly used. Other tactical variants are Australian formation and I-formation. Our aim was to find, how often and how effectively are these tactical variants used in men’s and women’s tennis doubles at the international level. We observed 22 men’s matches and 24 women’s matches on the ITF tournaments (...

Theoretical study of the effects of solvents on global properties of DDQ
Srivastava, K. K., Shubha Srivastava, Md. Tanweer Alam and Rituraj

DDQ is widely used as a - acceptor for the preparation of organic charge transfer. In this paper the effect of ten solvents on the ground state of DDQ has been reported. DFT calculations have been done on the Schrodinger software and the effect of solvents have been theoretically calculated with the help of Poisson-Boltzmann solver. The solvation energy, chemical potential, hardness, electrophilicity, HOMO-LUMO gap and the picture of the HOMO and LUMO of DDQ in the ground state in the...

Sustainable tourism strategy development in Kerala as a tool of growth
Dr. Haseena, V. A. and Dr. Ajims P. Mohammed

The state of Kerala in Southern India has been portrayed as a possible ‘model of development’ thanks to its ability to improve the social and economic conditions of the poor through public action and popular mobilisations. Kerala’s hard-won achievements in social development may be unravelling because of serious economic and financial crises that have afflicted the state in recent times as well as because of squabbling between major political camps within the state. Tourism is one of the...

Status of air pollution during festival of lights (Diwali) in Jhansi, Bundelkhand region, India
V. S. Chauhan, Bhanumati Singh, Shree Ganesh and Jamshed Zaidi

Diwali (Deepavali) is the festival of light and is celebrated with great enthusiasm all over India every year. Bursting crackers is the most prominent activity of Diwali. These firecrackers when burnt releases various gaseous and particulate air pollutants and toxic metals to significant quantity and degrades the air quality as a whole. The present study deals with the impact of bursting crackers and fireworks on the ambient air quality of Jhansi city during Diwali festival in Nov 2013. In...

The polyester resin plastination as a tool for making permanent dry specimens for teaching gynaecology
Sivagnanam, S., Balasundaram, K., Selvaraju, M., Ravikumar, K., Kumaravel, A. and Paramasivan, S.

Plastinated specimens make significant and quick references for the understanding of Gross Anatomy. The reproductive organs were collected from the slaughter house in Namakkal, Tamil Nadu and are fixed in Keiser ling I solution. Dehydration was done by a number of changes in acetone followed by xylene. The air drying of the specimen in the following step permits substitution of xylene by air. The organs are treated with polyester resin followed by curing with a mixture of resin and catalyst...

Polyester resin plastination for light weight poultry specimens
Sivagnanam, S., Geetha Ramesh, Kannan, T. A. and Jeyachandra Kempashi

Plastinated specimens make significant and quick references for the understanding of Gross Anatomy. The birds were collected from the Institute of Poultry Production and Management, Nandanam, Chennai. The birds were sacrificed in humane method and are fixed in Keiserling I solution and the body cavity was dissected to show the visceral organs in situ. Dehydration was done by a number of changes in acetone followed by xylene. The air drying of the specimen in the following step permits...

Nutritional aspects of egusi melon – Citrullus colocynthis L.
Abbah, O. C., Sanni, M. and Ejembi, D. O.

Egusi melon is an annual herbaceous, monoecous plant which is grown mostly in tropical regions. It is up to 28% protein and 35% fats, with about 72% by weight unsaturated fatty acids, and 57.4% of it being polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA). PUFAs being essential fatty acids must be provided in the diet and egusi melon serves as a rich source. Egusi melon oil contains nutritionally good amounts of linoleic acid and other essential fatty acids which have protective effect against coronary...

Effect of aerobic exercise on selected physiological variables among obese male children
Prasana Sundara Raju, P.

The purpose of the study was to find out the effectiveness of aerobic training on selected physiological variables among children prone to obesity. To achieve the purpose twenty five schools boys were selected from Fathima Higher Secondary School, Karuvadikuppam, Puducherry and their age range between 14 to 16 years. The physiological variables confined to this study were maximum oxygen consumption and percent body fat were selected as criterion variables were assessed using Cooper’s twelve...

Effect of vermiwash on growth and yield of brinjal, Solanum melongena (eggplant or aubergine)
Sundararasu, K. and Jeyasankar, A.

The present study was conducted to evaluate the effect of vermiwash on growth and productivity of brinjal plants. Physico-chemical properties of the soil in both control and experimental plots were studied and interrupted with results. The results revealed that vermiwash spray enhanced the growth parameters (plant height and number of leaves) and yield parameters (number of flowers and fruits per plant). Flowering and fruiting ratio was significantly increased in experimental plots. From...

Network competence and internationalization of service firms in Uganda
Muhammad Ngoma and Peter Dithan Ntale

The sparse research on internationalization of services in the least developed world hinders development of clear guidelines for service firms to seize internationalization opportunities. We use the Network Competence Model to explain internationalization of service firms in Uganda. We established low levels of network competence, network relationship intensity and internationalization among Ugandan service firms. Significant positive relationships existed between the variables. Network...
