Turbidity can serve to signal potential contamination problems or difficulties within a distribution system. Increased distribution system turbidity can be indicative of microbiological problems. After collection of samples from different locations in Rabak Town, Samples were analyzed as soon as possible in field by using turbidity meter. The study revealed that all examined samples indicated high levels of turbidity, (i.e. turbidity level above standard value 5 NTU). We found values of turbidity in all examined samples ranged from 38- 76 NTU. The study according to WQI revealed that quality of water unfit for drinking without secondary treatment process. Throughout this study we observed treatment of drinking water is insufficient due to high levels of turbidity in all examined water samples, so the study recommended that: local health authorities must check drinking water supply system regularly according to WHO guidelines for drinking water to ensure from efficiency of treatment process.

Kano, (12.05° N, 8.56° E) located in the extreme North of Nigeria, with an altitude of 476 m above sea level (asl.) and station number 650460 (DNKN), is one of the regions that records the least horizontal visibility of near zero in northern Nigeria during winter season due to the presence of harmattan dust particles in the air. This paper therefore, investigates the Mean Residence Time (MRT) of aerosol dust during the harmattan (winter) season using horizontal visibility data of the area. The horizontal visibility data of Kano was obtained from historical meteorological database of Tutiempo Network, for 12 harmattan seasons (2003/2004-2014/2015) with each season covering a period of the five months of harmattan season from (November–March). The results obtained, indicates that there is a downward trend in mean seasonal horizontal visibility by 0.016km per harmattan season. The seasonal average is 6.8 ± 1.5 km . The maximum and minimum seasonal average visibility are 8.9 ± 1.1 km (10-7.8 km) and 5.4 ± 2.8 km (8.2-2.6 km) respectively. Similarly, the estimated result of Mean Residence Time of dust aerosol shows a seasonal average Mean Residence Time (MRT) of 6 ± 2.4 days, with maximum and minimum seasonal average of 8.4 ± 4.7 days and 2.7 ± 1.8 days respectively. The trend reveals that the seasonal Mean Residence Time (MRT) decreases by 0.165km per harmattan season.

Metallogenic zone Borovica-Vareš-Čevljanovici is built of Triassic clastic and carbonate formations that established the presence of significant deposits of iron and complex sulphide-barite deposits. Metalliferous zone Triassic sediments Vareš area is located north of Sarajevo at a distance of about 35 km in a straight line. It stretches a distance of about 25 km and an average width of about 2.5 km. Triassic sediments cover an area approximately 70 km2, while the brighter part is about 30 km2. Systematic geological studies with shorter intervals were performed in the period from 1967 to 1989, when it was interrupted by the exploitation of the only open reservoirs Veovača. Summing up the results of research of complex sulphide-barite occurrences and deposits in the area are clearly distinguished three groups were identified: north-group deposits and occurrences (the village of Borovice), and the central group of deposits and occurrences-Veovača, Orti, Selište, Prijeljev, Droškovac, Brezik, Smreka south and south-eastern group deposits and occurrences: Barice, Brgule, Smajlova forest. Carried out systematic geological exploration works in the period 1967-1989 was executed evaluation of reserves of lead, zinc and barite deposits in Veovača, Orti, Rupice, Brestica-Juraševac, and other sites are only indicated which leaves room for further research. The environment Veovače, the localities Selište, Orti and Prijeljev obtained are indications interesting mineralization and ore, which would support future prospects in this area. The paper gives an overview of the results of research and quality of reserves of lead, zinc, barite, iron, chromium, manganese metallogenic zone Juniper-Vares-Čevljanovići. Displayed are the geological, mineralogical and chemical characteristics of these data explains the genesis of individual deposits. Previous geological, geochemical, geophysical and exploration drilling and underground mining works were found interesting mineralization and mineralization, indicating the perspective of this area.

Biclustering algorithms are used to identify local patterns from gene expression data sets and used to extract biologically relevant information. The fundamental goal of this work is to derive the heuristic approaches to identify the coherent biclusters from gene expression data with minimum MSR (Mean Square Residue) and maximum row variance. Nelder Mead (NM) simplex method is a local search method and very sensitive to the choice of initial points and does not guaranteed to attain the global optimum. The simplex obtained from each iteration continues to shrink and fall into local minima solution. To deal with this problem hybrid optimization approaches namely, Nelder Mead with Levy Flight and Tabu Search with Nelder Mead are proposed and compared. From the analysis, the result shows that NM with levy Flight method performs better to obtain global optima solution when compared and analyzed with NM method and Tabu search with NM.

The Al-Zn-Mg alloys were prepared through cast metallurgy route. Effects of minor scandium (Sc) on the precipitates of an age-hardenable Al-Zn-Mg alloy aged at 80 oC to 180 oC have been studied by optical microscopy (OM), differential thermal analysis (DTA), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) analysis. Results show that the addition of Sc in Al-Zn-Mg alloy is capable of refining cast grains obviously. Interpretation of results is done in terms of essential transformations involving GP zones, the metastable ή hardening precipitates and the stable phase η (MgZn2) respectively. Special focus has been placed on the study of microstructural evolution during initial phases of artificial ageing. Addition of Sc is found to improve the strength appreciably through strengthening mechanisms of precipitation hardening and grain refinement. This is due to the precipitation of secondary Al3Sc precipitates and noticeable grain refinement. The aim of the study is to elucidate effect of Sc on ageing kinetics of Al-Zn-Mg alloy.

This project describes an android application which will be available in user’s device and his/her wrist watch and both the devices will be connected to each other via Bluetooth [1]. Using this application the user would be able to directly call for medical assistance nearby where the user is a victim of an accident and is not in the situation to use his/her cell phone to call the nearest hospital as he may be out of his/her hometown and don’t know the nearby hospitals or he/she may be badly injured. User can use the application by pressing the button of his/her wrist watch only [2][3]. After pressing the button a message would be sent to all the hospitals nearby, this message would include the user’s current location, his/her name, age, previous medical history, contact number of family members. The nearest hospital from the user’s current location will send an ambulance at his/her present location and send a message to his/her family members telling that their family member has encountered an accident and he/she would be admitted to the hospital whose ambulance was sent to user’s current location. In addition to the wrist watch this application would be completely network independent to help the victim in a location where no mobile coverage is available and if he/she intends to help others who have met an accident he may also help them by giving his present location as the place for accident but he would not be the victim at that time [4].

The conventional method for leaf disease detection consists of calling an expert person who can identify the diseases based on his experience and that costs too much for an average farmer in a developing country such as India as mentioned above. The conventional system depends on human vision and tends to human error in some cases even with an expertise. Hence an alternative is required for a country like India where a low cost but technology dependent system is required. The best alternative is nothing but Image processing as it provides promising results than any other sensor based techniques

Industrial localization is far phasing out given the level of globalization and the herald of off shoring and outsourcing in business activities. Nevertheless, small and medium enterprises still find it attractive to leverage on one another’s capacity and capability to sustain their joint and total existence. Thus, industrial cluster or at the minimal level enterprises spillover continue to command respect among entrepreneurships. To what extent is the issue of enterprises spillover is relevance in Malete? What are the impacts of such spillover on entrepreneurships success in the localities? The study shall look into the possibility of evolving a working atmosphere for spillover to leverage on entrepreneurships capability in Malete. It shall also try to investigate the benefit of localization on organizations profitability using spillover leverage as springboard. The research employs survey method using six by six matrices analysis model to generate data for analysis and test of hypothesis. The total population of entrepreneurship interviewed totaling 48 were used for analysis. The 48 entrepreneurships spread over six classes of enterprises. It is found that entrepreneurships spillover if properly managed can lead into industrial cluster such that it can be availed with all facility associated with industrial clusters.
