Elsayed Mhamed Abdelaal, Khaled Metwally Amer, Abdel Moaty Abdel Khlik Oda and Mohmoud M. Elsakhawy

Background: Variceal bleeding is a frequent and life-threatening complication of portal hypertension. The first episode of variceal bleeding is not only associated with a high mortality, but also with a high recurrence rate in those who survive. Therefore, many studies and randomized clinical trials have focused on different strategies aiming to prevent the first episode of variceal bleeding (primary prophylaxis). Aims: to identify clinical, biochemical, and ultrasonographic parameters which...

Innovative use in the E-Business
Wiesław Breński

The Internet, while connecting people globally, allows companies existing on the market which theoretically has no borders. In practice, there are still certain limits, e.g. the linguistic ones. A website is a company’s “face” in the Internet world. Everybody is anonymous in the Net: it is impossible to read clients’ needs between the lines, it is impossible to manipulate clients via playing on personal emotions. In the Internet world a client is anonymous therefore...

Study the effect of ethanol on the formation of the wormlike micelles for a mixture of ionic surfactants
Rabah A. Khalil and Liqaa H. Alsamarrai

In this research, the anionic sodium Dodecyl Sulfate SDS surfactant had been blended with the cationic cetyltrimethylammonium bromide CATB surfactant using different concentrations (0.002-0.04M ) of ethanol and at temperature ranges (293.15K, 298.15K, 303.15K and 308.15K). Through the viscosity measurements for a mixture of SDS / CTAB and at certain mixing ratios (10 / 90,20 / 80,30 / 70 and 40/60), it was found that the viscosity was increased in the presence of ethanol, leading to the...

How to reveal the nature of dark matter and dark energy
V.M. Das

It is being believed that our universe is filled with not only hot matter that forms galaxies but also dark matter ( DM) and dark energy (DE) too. To reveal the nature of dark matter and dark energy , we have to understand how to make new model of the universe i.e. Hoyle Narlikar universe. The Hoyle Narlikar model of the universe designs two levels at which DM and DE could be revealed i.e. at micro level and at macro level. In creation physics we shall understand how nature created DM and DE...

Soil productivity management and socio-economic development through agro-forestry in North-East India
Bhabesh Gogoi

About 80% of the people of north-east India are directly or indirectly concerned with agriculture. Farmers, in this region, are generally small holders and thus, an attempt with agroforestry practices can result an increase in their earnings without endangering the fragile ecosystem. So far as geographical location and socio-cultural behaviour of the people of north-eastern states of India are concerned, the agroforestry models those have edge over other systems include- Agri-Silviculture (...

Oladejo M.O. and Agashua N. U.

When it comes to staying on top of the fast food industry, food innovation is one of the most important elements (Fastfood Restaurant , 2002). We regularly see our favourite fast food brands competing for our attention by introducing new and increasingly more exciting menu options either as limited editions or as new regulars on their menus. They do this bearing in mind to minimize cost. A case study of Ostrich Bakery fast food restaurant is considered using Linear Programming models as a...

Comparison between direct and indirect coupling for seismic analysis of fluid-structure coupled system
Kalyan Kumar Mandal and Damodar Maity

The present paper deals with the analysis of the fluid–structure systems considering the coupled effect of elastic structure and fluid adjacent to it. Both fluid and structure are discretized and modeled by finite elements. In the governing equations, pressure for the fluid domain and displacement for the structure are considered as independent nodal variables. Two different methods namely, direct coupled and indirect iterative approach for the analysis of fluid-structure system has...

Multidetector ct in detection of hepatocellular carcinoma meeting the milan criteria before liver transplantation
Elsayed Elmekkawy Elsayed, Enas Mohammed Koryem, Sarah Ali Mohammed and Elsayed Mohamed Abdelaal

Background: Liver transplantation has been considered to be the only causal treatment for patients with liver cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) due to its theoretical advantage of eliminating both the tumor and liver disease. However, because of the shortage of donor organs, it is strongly recommended that liver transplantations should be performed on cirrhotic patients with HCCs only when the patients meet the predetermined criteria. Imaging is thus decisive in the patient...
