Reasons for removal of the moon
In article the new concept of an explanation of the reason of removal of the Moon from Earth is offered to consideration. It is based on the theory of vortex gravitation, cosmology and a cosmogony. The main reason for this removal is that gravity, the earth's field does not create our planet, and ether vortex The orbital plane of the Moon doesn't coincide with the plane of a gravitational whirlwind that creates reduction of forces of an attraction of the Moon to Earth on some sites of its orbit. Removal of a lunar orbit happens a consequence of it.

Strong interaction of hadrons in quark cluster model
The theoretical information on the hadrons interactions according to the basis investigation of the multiple scattering process theory is described. As we know multi-particle reactions on the hadrons targets are attracting a great attention nowadays. To survey strong interaction of jet particles with quarks that are inside hadrons (Baryons,mesons, exotic baryons(Penta-quarks), exotic mesons(Tetra-quarks), we can use the estimate called high energy approximation (Eikonal or Glauber approximation) theory that known very well in nuclear physics. This estimate describes collision and interactions of jet particles with quarks and scattering from multi-focus hadrons like diffraction phenomenon in optics. Glauber multiple scattering process theory may apply in analyzing elastic and inelastic collision of hadrons in a range of high energy levels. Vol. 4 | No. 8 | 2015 Full Text

Preparation of polystyrene nanofiber modified with Dithizone using electrospinning technique

Cushioning women against gender inequality through promoting indigenous chicken production in sub Saharan Africa
Poultry sub sector is a privileged entry point for promoting gender equality. Gender inequalities in poultry and livestock activities are now more and more acknowledged by governments, scientists, and farmers in sub Saharan Africa. This is on the background that gender inequality has translated into loss of opportunities or potential gains on agricultural production and food security. This has been exacerbated by the fact that the progress in empowering women in agriculture and reducing gender inequality has been slow despite this realization. Vol. 4 | No. 6 | 2015 Full Text

The comparison of software cost estimation methods using fuzzy sets theory
Software cost estimation is a challenging and onerous task. Estimation by analogy is one of the expedient techniques in software effort estimation field. However, the methodology utilized for the estimation of software effort by analogy is not able to handle the categorical data in an explicit and precise manner. Early software estimation models are based on regression analysis or mathematical derivations. Software effort estimation is the process of predicting most realistic use of effort required to develop or maintain software based on incomplete and uncertain input. There are various methods suggested by researchers for calculating effort. The best result are achieved by using soft computing technique. In this paper we have represented size in KLOC as a triangular fuzzy number.

The Bowtie method in safety management system: A literature review
The Bowtie method is a qualitative incorporating management system technique. The theory behind the bow tie approach can be found in the “Swiss cheese model” of Reason. The Royal Dutch/Shell Group was the first major company to integrate fully the total bow-tie methodology into its business practices and then the bowtie has become popular as a structured method to assess risk where a quantitative approach is not possible or desirable. Its essence is to establish how many safety barriers there are available to prevent, control or mitigate the identified scenarios, and the quality of those barriers. Vol. 4 | No. 9 | 2015 Full Text

Energy extension and energy literacy for sustainable energy development in rural Nigeria
Energy is a very important part of any sustainable development strategy. Without modern energy services, the poor will go on being poor and the sick will continue to be sick. Access to clean, abundant, reliable domestic energy services is an enormous challenge facing Nigerian and Africa because energy is fundamental for socio-economic development and poverty reduction. Since majority (about 70%) of the Nigerian population live in rural areas, with agriculture as their major occupation, clean energy development and provisioning is important to meet their livelihood needs. Renewable energy technologies have been developed but most of these rural dwellers are ignorant of these technologies. Vol. 4 | No. 8 | 2015 Full Text

Microbial quality of selected sandwiches sold at retail outlets of fast food shops in Dhaka city and Mymensingh town of Bangladesh
The experiment was designed to undertake a study on the sanitary quality of commercial fast foods sold at retail outlets of fast food shops in Dhaka city and Mymensingh town of Bangladesh. One hundred sandwiches were subjected to bacteriological examinations. The mean values of total viable count (TVC), total coliform count (TCC) and total staphylococcal count (TSC) in wrapped and unwrapped samples of pre-microwave oven and post-microwave oven fast foods were determined. In pre-microwave oven the TVC, TCC and TSC were log 6.36, log 3.42 and log 4.21 respectively. similarly in post-microwave oven the TVC, TCC and TSC were log 4.89, log 2.60 and log 3.03 respectively.

Evaluation of antifungal, hemolytic and cytotoxic potentiality of ethyl acetate crude extracts of a novel marine Streptomyces spp. AIAH-10
To face newly generated diseases, searching for new, safe and effective bioactive molecules is urgent and marine microbial flora may be a potential source. The present study was designed to isolate marine microorganisms (AIAH-1 to AIAH-29) from the soil of mangrove forest Sundarbans, Bangladesh by serial dilution method using isolation media. Among them, AIAH-10 was selected for further study due to its promising antibacterial activity (done by streak plate and plug technique method) against a series of pathogenic bacteria. On the basis of morphological, cultural and biochemical analysis, the strain AIAH-10 belongs to Streptomyces spp. Secondary metabolites of the strain was obtained by small scale fermentation process.

Glycaemic effect of date palm (phoenix dactylifera) in wistar rats
ADate palm fruit is commonly known fruit often called “Dabino” by Northern Nigerians. It is often eaten during fasting periods as it gradually improves low sugar levels due to its sugary or sweet nature. The present study aimed at evaluating the glycaemic responses of non diabetic albino rats administered with date palm (phoenix dactylifera). To accomplish this aim, animals were fasted for 18 hours after which they were randomly assigned into three (3) groups of five (5) animals each as follows: Group 1: Received 40g of glucose dissolved in 100ml of distilled orally, Group 2: Received 1000mg/kg b w of aqueous extract of date palm orally and Group 3: Received 1500mg/kg b w of aqueous extract of date palm orally.

Antenatal Detection of Congenital Cytomegalovirus Infection (A Comparative Study between Serological and Molecular Identification of Cytomegalovirus Infection)
Cytomegalovirus, or CMV, is a common virus that infects most people worldwide. CMV infection is usually harmless and rarely causes illness. A healthy immune system can hold the virus in check. However, if a person's immune system is seriously weakened in any way, the virus can become active and cause CMV disease. The samples consisted of 120 pregnant women, prospectively screened for CMV by serology from March 2012 to November 2012. Vol. 4 | No. 1 | 2015 Full Text

Shoulder pain
Shoulder pain is a common and important musculoskeletal problem. Compromised shoulder movement due to pain, stiffness, or weakness can cause substantial disability and affect a person’s ability to carry out daily activities. Common shoulder disorders exhibit similar clinical features, and the lack of consensus on diagnostic criteria. This review proposes an evidence based approach using a simplified classification of shoulder problems, incorporating diagnostic techniques applicable to a primary care consultation and a “red flag” system to identify potentially serious disease.
