Exploring the impact of foreign direct investment on economic growth: A comparison between Pakistan and IndiaPDF

Afreen Sahar, Danish Alam

This paper attempts to explore the impact of FDI on economic growth of Pakistan and India. The time period of the study is taken from 1976-2018. For the study, we have taken GDP as dependent variable while FDI, external debt and exports as independent variables. We have applied various tests for checking stationary, hetero and normality before applying OLS. After running OLS (Ordinary Least Square) we found that study confirms FDI has positively affect the economic growth of Pakistan and India and further provides an estimate that other two explanatory variables (external debt and exports) have also positively affected the economic growth of both country. We have also found out that India’s economic growth is more affected by FDI than Pakistan’s economic growth.

Combat COVID19 Diagnosis with Combined Test, Outcome: Make Up RT-PCR Shortage and RDB False Negative CoveragePDF

Uddin S.M., Hasan M. M

ABSTRACT COVID-19 diagnosis is now a burning issue in the world. WHO certified only reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) technique which is used for diagnosis of COVID-19 but another side rapid dot blot (RDB) test is not recognized by WHO due to false positive and false negative issue. RDB test is so much easier and less time consuming than RT-PCR. Around the world huge people affected with COVID-19 daily but only use of RT-PCR in diagnosis is not cover all the existing cases due to some limitation of this test. Real-time reverse-transcriptase polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) assays were used for detection of SARS-CoV-2 from respiratory secretions collected by nasal and oropharyngeal swabs. Due to lack of technology, technical support for a large portion of people are to be undiagnosed, especially in developing country. If we programed a combined test RT-PCR with RDB, we can enhance test efficiency and efficacy. RDB test will make up RT-PCR shortage, by initial screening test of large population, and remain population confirmed by RT-PCR that make up the false negative of initial RDB test. The real result is come out if we work with.

The proper use of affixes in a language plays a major role in order to have effective use of the language. The purpose of this paper was to explore the main features and use of gender inflections of Kafi-noonoo (Kafa language) nouns and pronouns. The qualitative method was mainly used. This paper also used key informants and relevant materials with his personal intuition (experience) of the language to gather the data. The overall results indicated clearly observable patterns and features. In the findings, the gender distinction between masculine and feminine of common/ collective nouns were explored with the help of collected reflective data. The gender inflections of the language have a regular pattern as shown from the listed data. That is, in this data, ‘o’ indicates masculine gender and ‘e/i’ indicates feminine gender in Kafi-noonoo. Especially, third-person singular nouns and pronouns are used to distinguish the gender of nouns and pronouns. This generalization was indicated both in biological and linguistic (Grammatical) genders. The study was accomplished with the implications for future investigations.

Dynamics of Covid-19 Transmission using Mathematical modelPDF

Md. Abu Salek and Md. Shahidul Islam

We broaden a dynamical model to recognize the underlying dynamics of COVID-19 contamination at the population in the recent world. As reported by the World Health Organization, a novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) was identified as the causative virus of Wuhan pneumonia of unknown aetiology by Chinese authorities on 7 January 2020. The virus was named as severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) by International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses on 11 February 2020. This study aimed to develop a mathematical model for calculating the transmissibility of the virus. The model, which integrates the remedy of people, the infections of latent and medicinal people, is rigorously analyzed to gather insight into its dynamical features. The phenomenon resulted because of the exogenous infection of COVID-19 disease. The mathematical assessment is famous that the version exhibits even as COVID-19 treatment stays of infected elegance. It's far demonstrated that, in the absence of preparation, the version has a sickness-loose equilibrium (DEF) this is globally asymptotically stable, and the associated reproduction threshold is less than fraternal cases. Similarly, the model has a unique endemic equilibrium (EEP), for a special case, whenever the related duplicate threshold amount exceeds solidarity. For a unique case, the EEP is operating the use of the important manifold theorem of Castillo-Chavez.

Performance of Dowels in direct shearPDF

Heba Ali Abdel Rahman

Dowels are used at construction joints to resist shear forces. The shear resistance takes place between existing and new reinforced concrete elements. In this study the shear friction behavior of concrete section reinforced by dowels is experimentally investigated. Twenty – one models were tested. The specimens were divided into seven groups. Each group consisted of three specimens of same characteristics to reduce the effect of unintended variability in test. Specimens have dimensions of 300 * 300 * 150mm. Specimens have equal shear and flexure reinforcement. The test specimens varied in dowel length, diameter, and shape. The lengths of dowels as multiplier of bar diameter ( ) varied from 10 , 15 , 20 , to 30 . The diameters of dowels were between ( ) 8mm and10mm. The variation in shape of dowels included L shape and straight shape. The test results include among the general behavior the characteristics of load- deflection relationship, the load –steel strain relationship, load slip characteristics of dowel, dowel strain, and failure load. Based on the experimental results, the effect of the variables, being the length, the diameter and the shape assessed. Recommendations toward achieving maximum efficiency of dowels are given.

Color-aided instruction plays a vital role in children's learning. This action research aimed to improve the reading level of 19 Grade 1 pupil of Ozamiz Elementary School (OES) during the school year 2018 – 2019 by using Color-Coded Vowel Sound (CodeVS) as an intervention. This study employed the pretest and posttest design, and the data were gathered using an oral passage in Early Grades Reading Assessment in grade one, a standar-dized test as an instrument of the study. In the data analysis, counts and percents of pupils' reading status and universal themes of interview responses were noted. After the intervention period, 19 pupils became readers. The teachers observed that along with the significant improvement of their reading ability and reading level, class attendance, pupils enjoyment, interest and engagement and training effectiveness also improved. The intervention showed improved decoding skills, reading level, and reading ability of the pupils. It also provides further evidence that pseudowords/invented words can make pupils learn quickly than real names. Keywords: colors, level, intervention, pupils, reading,

Iron based industries in India uses the conventional blast furnace route which need coking coal, which is depleting very rapidly and India has also very limited reserves. Therefore, technology was evolved using non coking coal in which non- coking coal is used and steel is produced through directly reduced iron technology- the DRI or the sponge iron processes. The production of sponge iron has reduced the need of the polluting coke ovens and sinter plants of the conventional blast furnace route of the integrated iron and steel plants, however in direct reduction process pollution and generation of wastes is also causing pollution problem in industrial belts. Industrialization is essential to meet up upcoming demands of the evolution. All the industrial activity releases some amount of by-products as pollution into the environment. Iron and steel industry is one of the major heavy industries of Jharkhand and considered as resource intensive and pollution prone and added pollution to air, water resources, precious land. In central India many of the integrated iron and steel industry is highly polluting, non-compliant and resource-inefficient. The aim of the present review is to understand and get aware with the pollution, mainly (i) stack emission as air pollution, and (ii) check on the various processes from where fugitive emission occur in these Iron plants in Jharkhand.

ABSTRACT The study examined the status of roads, availability of road furniture, effectiveness, reasons of the present status of roads and the possible way forwards in Chikun LGA of Kaduna State, Nigeria. Primary data were generated through the administration of 384 questionnaires to randomly, systematically and purposefully sampled population. Oral interviews and field observations were also carried out for holistic and detail evaluation of the status of roads transport infrastructure. The result of the study shows that the status of roads in the area is generally poor and grossly inadequate as reported by 74.5% of the respondents. Most of the roads are not paved or tarred as indicated by 79% of the respondent and the study shows that 79% of the roads have no road furniture. The investigation further reveals that provision and managements of the roads are being done by the communities and individuals because the government has not constructed or repair any road that links the communities in the area for over seven years. Finally, the study reveals the reason for the poor status and inadequate good rood networks as well as road furniture as Government failures and neglects of the area. The study therefore recommends that government of Kaduna State should put aside political or ethno-religious difference and provide road infrastructure in the area. Keywords: Status, road, infrastructure, furniture, transport

Classification of Different types of skin cancer for diagnosis using digital imagesPDF

Yoganathan.M,Umesh Kumar.E,Babu.T

Melanoma is considered as a destructive type of skin cancer. However, it is hard to distinguish it from other types of skin cancer due to their similar visual appearance and symptoms. The mortality rate because of this disease is higher than all other skin- related consolidated malignancies. The number of cases is increasing among young ones. To diagnose the skin cancer easily in earlier condition, so that can be detect the skin lesion which is affected by skin cancer or not.Due to this,cost and time for the doctors to diagnose all patients for skin cancer is reduced. In this paper, We propose an intelligent system to detect and distinguish the skin cancer images by using the image processing techniques.
