ABSTRACT: This study was carried out to assess the thyroid function profile in school children resident in Ekpoma, a sub-urban community in Nigeria and to explore the possible effect of weight, height, age and sex on thyroid function. Serum thyrotropin (TSH), triiodothyronine (T3) and total thyroxine (T4) levels were determined in 100 school children (39 males and 61 females) in the 11-15 years age group. This assessment was done between October and December 2009. Their samples were collected and analyzed using microwell ELISA technique. Results showed that the mean serum T3, T4 and TSH levels in the school children were 113.6640.70 mg/dl, 9.872.73 ug/dl and 1.721.83 uIU/ml respectively. There was a non significant difference in serum T3, T4 and TSH levels in the school children evaluated when compared with standard reference range (P>0.05). The weight and height were not significantly correlated to `serum TSH and T3 levels (P>0.05). However, there was a significant negative correlation between the weight of the children and serum T4 levels (r = -0.194; P<0.05). Additionally, no statistically significant difference was observed between the male and female school children evaluated (P>0.05). Conclusively, variation in the serum thyroid profile was observed in school children but these changes were not significantly different from the standard reference range.

ABSTRACT: As we see many websites have a hierarchical organization of content. This organization may be quite different from the organization expected by visitors to the website and sometime it is unclear where a specific document is located. There are many algorithms that automatically search pages in a website whose location is different from where visitors expect to find them. In the above case visitors will backtrack if they do not find the information where they expect it. In this paper an algorithm is present for discovering such expected locations. Expected locations with a significant number of hits are then presented to the website administrator. We also present an algorithm for selecting expected locations (for adding navigation links) to optimize the benefit to the website or the visitor. Beside the structure of the website, users' preference to target pages is another key factor for analyzing the location or node importance. Clearly a specific document which is visited frequently or where users stay for a long while indicates that it has a higher degree of preference. This paper introduces the duration’s as a weight of the node to measure the preference. [Navin Kumar Agrawal, Shalini Kushwaha, Rajeev Kumar.

摘要:采用自然科学的部分方法研究人文科学,能把《山海经》看成是“涸海古卷”,并可通过对四川嘉陵江等流域发现的大围坪盆塞海海啸遗迹地貌和伴生的嫘祖文明遗存来考证。其意义不但能说明中华文明是“海洋文明在先,农耕文明在后”的文明,而且能进一步深入挖掘、利用四川及我国西部远古文明史资源,促进四川旅游和社会经济的跨越式发展。

Abstract: The present study was conducted to find out the instances of malaria in four different ecological zones in district Haridwar during the year of 2008. The malarial instances were also correlated with climatic factors. Four different ecological zones i.e. (i) Industrial Ecological Zone (Township of BHEL), (ii) Urban Ecological Zone (Township of Roorkee ), (iii) Pre-urban Ecological Zone (Township of Laksar), (iv) Rural ecological zone (Bahadarabad village) were selected for the present study.

Abstract: An aeromagnetic map of the Koton-karifi area, (sheet 227) was purchased from the Geological survey of Nigeria (GSN). The area is located between latitudes 8˚.00’N and 8˚.30’N and longitudes 6˚.30’E and 7˚.00’E.Six profiles were established. The map was digitised with a spacing of 1KM. The anomaly map with values ranging from -200nT to 250nT, Shows a central linear belt which runs from the western to the eastern ends. The southern end is dominated by convolutions and the Northern end is dominated by smoothed network of contours. The derivative filters were designed and used to quantify the spatial rate of the magnetic field in vertical and horizontal directions and so capable of enhancing higher frequency anomalies relative to the lower ones.

Abstract: 蜀人与西藏披毛犀邓洪 蔚雷最早的两河流域苏美尔文明为蜀人所创,有证据吗?中华远古文明最早发源于蜀,有证据吗?如果说人类最早的顶尖优势文明,起源于8 000多年前的四川盆塞海洋文明和山寨城邦文明,那么就能说明在西方海洋文明产生之前,嫘祖、夸父、盘古、女娲、伏羲、蚕丛等先王,就已经在四川盆塞内陆海及四周城邦之间演习操练过多时了。
