Brgel shows how animals may func-tion as medium for self-knowledge, though this role is mostly played bywoman, the psychagogue par excellence in the Khamsa! The bulk of present-day studies on Classical Persian literature focuseson mysticism.
It might be correct to say that for the last two decades, themajority of scholars in the field have concentrated on the analysis of mysti-cal Persian poets. Fascinating though this approach might be it regretfullypushes the study of non-mystical authors somewhat in the shadow. Opinions vary on whether Nizm belongs to this latter group. It is gener-ally accepted that several of his works display a tendency towards mysti-cism, while others seem rather to refer to philosophy or morality. It is thusparticularly rewarding to look at the contributions by Asghar Seyed-Gohrab and Leili Anvar, who approach Nizm from a mystical point ofview, with the analytical tools and scholarly technique and discourse usedto interpret sufi-authors.
Nizm rises to the occasion and yields interestingpoints for this interpretative research. In A Mystical Reading of NizmsUse of Nature in the Haft Paykar, Seyed-Gohrab convincingly argues thatthe poet sees nature as an object of reflection that reveals the divine ra-tional order by which man can achieve sublimation, but also as a cryptfrom which man is supposed to escape. The Brethren of Purity are shownto have had an influence on Nizm. Desire is a passion that never reaches satisfaction in this world,and is expressed in the theme of hollowness, of movement towards no-thingness.
Anvar also studies the imagery of Layl and of the pearl, whichis also a metaphor for Nizms own poetry. But what about analysing Nizms words with a view to gauge his atti-tude to and familiarity with Islamic tenets? This is what underlies the re-searches of both Patrick Franke and Carlo Saccone. In Drinking from theWater of Life. He focuses on this amongst Nizms abundantimagery drawn from Islamic lore and shows how the poet significantlytransforms the theme. Khizr occurs both in the Haft Paykar, in his role asrescuer of a hero in times of need, and in the Sharaf Nma in connection. But Nizm is innovative as,in the Prologue to the Sharaf Nma, he also asks Khizr to inspire him withpoetic originality.
This latter role of Khizr survives in later poetry and willeven appear in Goethes and Iqbls verses. In the former two episodes, Alexander acts as legislatorand protector. But when meeting the Perfect Men and the young Peasant,he reaches the limits of sovereignty and cannot add anything or act in abeneficial way.
Saccone thus analyses Nizms view on righteous kingshipthat goes beyond the accepted Muslim appro Aleksander Gog Magog Download Report. Published on Nov View 65 Download 9.

The greatest number of translated published books four titles were about geography and history. Mansoor Kadivar, September Economic needs and the role of rural women and girls in supplying a part and sometimes all of the revenue of the family have exacerbated this deprivation. This led 70 years ago to a situation in which the first steps were taken to embark upon an official education system in Iran and hence achieve the literacy of rural men and those in the urban society. In , only one person was literate in a community of , rural women while one person was literate out of every 14 rural men.
The policies of the former regime of Iran before the Islamic Revolution were directed to prioritize the development and provision of educational services to urban societies. This led to a neglect of rural society and there is still a long way to go in order to eliminate illiteracy amongst Iranian rural women.
In the short period after the victory of the revolution, the proportion of rural girls who were students and the literacy rate of rural women reached a level unprecedented in the past fifty years. Looking at literacy among rural women in various age groups, one realizes that illiteracy increases with age. One may conclude that the illiteracy of rural women is caused by lack of access to education. The rural society's culture and the indifference toward education for girls in the rural areas, are among other factors.
The considerable participation of rural women and girls indicates their interest in becoming literate and enjoying a greater level of education although they have had no access or little access to education facilities in previous years.

The book is the third Persian literary work translated into the Korean language over the past six months. July President Khatami made the remark in his address to the participants at the symposium.
This great ingenious narrator of art and life presented a warm, lively and truthful drama of the world and its wonders; a world which is neither abstract nor far-fetched but real and tangible Saadi stands out from the rest of great Persian poets and writers as an unrivalled literary figure in the creation of masterpieces in prose and poetry. It is a mark of his greatness that his literary fame goes beyond the confines of time and space.
On the sidelines of the gathering, there was an exhibition of books compiled by foreign thinkers and writers on the various aspects of Saadi's life. Some volumes of works of scholars from Lebanon, Syria, Egypt, etc. He was considered the most important contemporary Iranian poet.
He also published cultural and literary periodicals. In his last unfinished book entitled "Book of the Alley" he coined several Persian slang expressions now widely used by the public. In the last years of his life he finished a translation of the novel "Tranquil Flows the Don" by Mikhail Sholokhov which is to be published in the near future. He was regarded by critics not only as Iran's greatest modern poet, but as a poet of world standing, who contributed greatly to the reformation of Persian poetry which started at the beginning of the 20th century.
He was particularly highly respected by secular intellectuals. He was the editor of the literary journal "Karnameh". His novels are often characterized by complex structures, and the discovery of the key to the central enigma of his stories requires careful reading. He began his literary career with a collection of short stories entitled "As Always", but he was mostly known as the writer of "Prince Ehtejab", a novel set in the Qajar period that was turned into a prize-winning motion picture by Bahman Farmanara. His last major book was a collection of literary essays and reviews entitled "Garden in Garden".
He was awarded the German Erich Maria Remarque Award last year for his "constant efforts to fight oppression and to promote democracy and human rights values. At the 7th International Awards Ceremonies on 10 February , all the books that were originally published in the course of in two categories of "Islamic Studies" and "Iranian Studies" were reviewed. As in previous periods, the review of the works was conducted through studying the printed indexes, specialised magazines and publications, discussions in research centres, data-banks, reputable publishers and consultation with Islamic scholars and theoreticians.
One of the main points in this year's fair was that for the first time in over ten years, Germany participated with book titles from 40 German publishers.

This publishing house is affiliated with quite a number of publishers in Europe and US. However, there were no major hit items in , and sales of both books and magazines marked a decrease. The downward trend in publishing sales continues. A big factor is the problem of returned books. Under consignment sales system, bookstores are free to return unsold books and magazines to their distributors within a specified period of time.
This problem has been an issue in the industry for some time. There has been progress in efforts to tackle the problem with digitization of distribution system, but we are still in a transition period. One reason cited for the problem of returns is the increase in returns caused by bookstores that have closed or switched businesses. For the past several years, approximately 1, stores per year are said to have left the industry.
Many chain bookstores have opened, but floor space on average is decreasing. To solve this problem, either reducing the number of new publications, or building a better system to increase is efficiency. The former is an issue for the publisher. However, it is difficult to change the current situation because publishers want to serve its mission and role by producing new creative works. The latter solution deals with the current distribution system. The relationship between the readers and the various players, the creator publisher , distributor wholesalers , seller bookstore , should be such that readers should be able to obtain books they want surely and rapidly.
This means that publishing people should nurture readers and meet their needs, however, those needs are varied. The number of new publications is not as large compared with those of other developed countries, but there are many similar books on the market. Publishers ought to assess their plans for new publications critically. The fact that there are many new publications does show the richness of society. There is free competition; those publications which are positively evaluated by the readers will remain. Because of the rapid growth of internet bookstores, there is the possibility that multiple channels of distribution change consumer behaviour.
At the same time, different distribution routes according to the type of publication would be considered. The freedom to publish is freedom of distribution and freedom to advertise. Some have a long history; the Mainichi poll has been conducted 59 times, the Ie-no-Hikari survey 60 times. Among these surveys, the farming community survey is a unique one.
The target population is randomly selected from family members of the Agricultural Cooperatives nationwide. There are more people read magazines than books. The percentage of people reading is generally on the decline. The percentage for magazines was the lowest in 55 years; that for books was the second lowest in 33 years.

Resistant gram-negative bacilli and antibiotic consumption in zarqa, jordan. To investigate the prevalence of antibiotic resistance among gram-negative bacteria in relation to antibiotic use in Prince Hashem Hospital PHH , Jordan. One hundred consecutive gram-negative bacterial isolates from different sites were collected from patients admitted to the ICU at PHH.
The susceptibilities of the strains to 12 antibiotics were performed and interpreted. The quantities and the numbers of the patients discharged on antibiotics and the quantities consumed were obtained from the hospital pharmacy records. The most common isolate was P. The most frequently used antibiotics were the third-generation cephalosporins ceftriaxone and ceftazidime, followed by imipenem and amikacin.
Antibiotic resistance surveillance programs associated with registration of antibiotic consumption are necessary to promote optimal use of antibiotics. Rational prescribing of antibiotics should be encouraged through educational programs, surveillance and audit. Proper infection control measures should be practiced to prevent horizontal transfer of drug-resistant organisms. Antibiotic resistance in children with recurrent or complicated urinary tract infection. Urinary tract infection is certainly one of the most common childhood infections.
A retrospective study carried out at Prince Hashem hospital, Zarqa city, eastern Jordan and involved episodes of culture proved urinary tract infection obtained from patients with recurrent UTI, who used prophylactic antibiotics during the period from April 1, to December 31, The isolated microorganisms and there antibiotics susceptibility were studied. Seventy three patients Proteus, Pseudomonas and Candida spp.
Pediatric urine culture isolates are becoming increasingly resistant to commonly used antibiotics. Nitrofurantoin and Nalidixic acid can be considered as the first line antibiotics for prophylaxis and or treatment of patients with recurrent UTI, while Meropenam and Ciprofloxacin can be used empirically in treating patients with complicated UTI.

To define the appearence of the uterus and the uterine cavity, as revealed by the ultrasound in normal women following a vaginal delivery. Fifty four women were scanned on postpartum days 1, 7, 14, 28 and Ultrasound operation was performed transabdominally for all women.
The involution process of the uterus was assessed by measuring the anteroposterior diameter and uterine cavity. The appearence of the uterine cavity content was documented. Factors related to the involution process: parity, breast-feeding, smoking and infant's birth weight were also evaluated. The maximum anteroposterior diameter of the uterus diminished substantially and progressively from 93mm on day one postpartum to The maximum anteroposterior diameter of the uterine cavity diminished from The position of the uterus, its shape and the appearence of its cavity during the normal puerperium was observed.
The uterus was most often retroverted and empty in the early puerperium. Fluid and debris in the whole cavity were seen in mid puerperium, the cavity was empty and appeared as a thin white line. No correlation was found between the involution of the uterus and parity, breast-feeding and infant's birth weight. Transabdominal sonography is suitable for examination of the uterus during the early puerperium period. The uterine body and position, as well as the cavity, are easy to examine by ultrasound. Accumulation of fluid and debris in the uterine cavity is a common and insignificant finding of the invluting uterus.

The result of ANOVA and mean comparisons showed significant differences among accessions for some of the traits i. Chemotherapeutic potential of curcumin-bearing microcells against hepatocellular carcinoma in model animals.
It possesses strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, and inhibits chemically-induced carcinogenesis in the skin, forestomach, colon, and liver. Unfortunately, the poor bioavailability and hydrophobicity of curcumin pose a major hurdle to its use as a potent anticancer agent. To circumvent some of these problems, we developed a novel, dual-core microcell formulation of curcumin. The encapsulation of curcumin in microcells increases its solubility and bioavailability, and facilitates slow release kinetics over extended periods. Besides being safe, these formulations do not bear any toxicity constraints, as revealed by in vitro and in vivo studies.
Histopathological analysis revealed that curcumin-bearing microcells helped in regression of hepatocellular carcinoma and the maintenance of cellular architecture in liver tissue. Free curcumin had a very mild effect on cancer suppression. Empty sham microcells and microparticles failed to inhibit cancer cells. The novel curcumin formulation was found to suppress hepatocellular carcinoma efficiently in Swiss albino mice. Keywords: diferuloylmethane, carcinogenesis, microparticle, nanocells, cancer, Curcuma longa.
However, the revolution that occurred in Egypt in , followed by the election of Mohammed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood as the first civilian president of Egypt, it did not change the foreign policy of Egypt, particularly against the United States. In that sense, Egypt is still continuing good relations with the United States as in the reign of Hosni Mubarak. In this study, the authors use the neoclassical realism theory which states that the foreign policy adopted by a country is the result of domestic political dynamics that are influenced by international structures.
Suggestion of a conventional Islamic calendar.
Full Text Available There is a complexity of the problem concerning the first sighting of the new lunar crescent, which is attributed to various astronomical, astrophysical and geographical factors. Therefore, Astronomers adopted various criteria for the new crescent visibility. Muslims around the world differ in the beginning of the Hijric months. In fact the differences are not due to different methodology of astronomical calculations, which in turn the variations of the calendar at different countries gives.
Therefor; the beginning of the month of Thul'hejja 10 A. H is on Thursday. Our suggested calendar takes Farewell Hajj of the Prophet Mohammad to be the base of this calendar. The advantage of our suggested calendar far away from any criteria; where the adoption of criteria for the new crescent visibility is often misleading.

Results: There was significant reduction of mean IOP from What Perspectives for Crisis Resolution? Against the Bomb and for Human Rights. The will of Islamic power to access the nuclear bomb is evident. The main concern is the nuclear project's state of advancement. Currently, the reformer Khatami or the pragmatic Rafsanjani are no longer rivals to Ahmadinejad.
They have been replaced by the current mayor of Teheran, Mohammad Qalibaf, and the former Iranian chief nuclear negotiator, Ali Larijani, both products, like Ahmadinejad, of the repressive and safe apparatus of the Islamic regime. Coupled with targeted and necessary sanctions, the international support of secular and democratic Iranians is the more legitimate and rational way to weaken the hard-line Iranian rulers, and to give support to the pragmatists and the reformists currently stifled by the theocratic institutions.
Bioindicator Thais carinifera mollusca, gastropoda: imposex response and consequences along the Pakistan coast during the period from to Full Text Available Abstract Endocrine mediated "imposex" phenomenon was investigated and recorded in the muricoid gastropod species Thais carinifera during the two decades from to at three 3 sites out of six 6 localities investigated along the Sindh and Balochistan coast, Pakistan. The VDS stages 1 to 4 were apparent in Thais carinifera.
Target species found to be good bioindicators have shown a marked decrease over the prolonged study period. Investigations show that this decrease is solely due to globally imposed effective bans on tributyltin TBT based antifouling paints over the past decade. There is a complexity of the problem concerning the first sighting of the new lunar crescent, which is attributed to various astronomical, astrophysical and geographical factors.
In short time, many famous fiqh scholars were educated from this region, they undertook this duty and continued this education until today. The fiqh education that started in mosques in the begining, continued also in madrasas after some time. This article provides informations and evaluations about the mentioned issues. It entails a transformation process involving all sectors of the society in such a way that true and committed Muslim leaders will emerge to provide direction and at the same time orchestrate the development of the communities.
It is therefore argued that transformational leadership is the most appropriate model that could improve the living conditions of Muslims in the Philippines Firstly, this study provides the empirical evidence that leaders and followers believe that it is through Islamic leadership that their communities can be developed. Secondly, the history of the leadership of Prophet Mohammad and his four caliphs proved that Islamic leadership is indeed transformational leadership one, hence, they deserve to be emulated by Muslims.

In patients suffering from idiopathic central serous chorioretinopathy, anxiety scores are higher than in healthy controls, but do not vary according to sex or repeated central serous chorioretinopathy. The aims of the present study were threefold: to determine whether 1 Iranian patients with CSCR have higher scores for anxiety, 2 anxiety is lower, if CSCR has been experienced twice, and whether 3 anxiety scores differ between sexes.
Methods: A total of 30 patients with CSCR and 30 healthy age- and sex-matched controls took part in the study. A brief face-to-face interview was conducted covering demographic variables and history and occurrence of CSCR and assessing anxiety. Results: Compared to healthy controls, anxiety was significantly higher in both first-time and second-time CSCR patients.
In CSCR patients, anxiety scores did not differ between sexes. This suggests there is no psychological adaptation in terms of reduced anxiety among patients with repeated CSCR. Keywords: idiopathic central. Apoptosis of cochlear cells is an important factor in animal models of ARHI. As these cells cannot regenerate, their loss leads to irreversible hearing impairment.
Identification of molecular mechanisms can facilitate disease prevention and effective treatment. ARHI and healthy subjects were selected after an ear nose throat examination, otoscopic investigation, and pure tone audiometry. RNA was extracted from peripheral blood samples, and relative gene expression levels were measured using quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction.
Our results indicate that BAK-mediated apoptosis may be a core mechanism in the progression of ARHI in humans, similar to finding in animal models. Moreover, the gene expression changes in peripheral blood samples could be used as a rapid and simple biomarker for early detection of ARHI. Keywords: age-related hearing impairment ARHI, presbycusis, biomarker, treatment. Full Text Available Indus deltaic plain consists of medium to fine grained sediments, rich in organic matter deposited during the Holocene period.
Thar desert is covered with sand dunes and loess originated from transported sediments from Rann of Kutch or the Indus plain by monsoon winds or by the reworking of local alluvial deposits. Groundwater salinity and microbial pollution are common in both types of lanforms, but arsenic AS and fluoride F toxicity dominate in the groundwater of Indus delta and Thar desert, respectively. Arsenic concentration in Tando Mohammad Khan and Tando Allayar varies from ppb and exhibits near neutral slightly alkaline pH ranging from 6. Arsenic distribution is patchy and seems to be related to the prsence of small scale redox zonation in the aquifer.
High arsenic affected areas are densely populated and intensively cultivated and its hot spots are those from where the Indus river passed during the Holocene period including Tando Allayar and Tando Mohammad Khan. Extensive ground water irrigation has accelerated flow of groundwater that brought dissolved degraded organic matter in contact with arsenic bearing sediments, enhancing reduction processes and triggering release of arsenic from detrital bioitite and muscovite in the groundwater.
Furthermore, unlined sanitation and microbial contamination contribute to degradation of organic matter that enhances the reduction of iron oxy-hydroxide leading to release of arsenic to groundwater. Fluoride is found in all the groundwater samples of Tharparkar district, in the range of 0. The pH of groundwater is alkaline 7. The favourable pH of groundwater and soil composition of Holocene sediments of Indus delta and slightly older alluvium of Thar desert, respectively are responsible for mobilization of arsenic and fluoride in groundwater of Sindh province of Pakistan.
The effects of religion and spirituality on postoperative pain, hemodynamic functioning and anxiety after cesarean section. Full Text Available Spiritual elements play an important role in the recovery process from acute postoperative pain. This study was conducted to assess the effect of pray meditation on postoperative pain reduction and physiologic responds among muslim patients who underwent cesarean surgery under spinal anesthesia. This double-blinded randomized clinical trial study was conducted among muslim patients who underwent cesarean surgery under spinal anesthesia during at tertiary regional and teaching hospital in Lorestan, Iran.
For about 20 minutes using a disposable phone mentioned and listened to pray meditation "Ya man esmoho davaa va zekroho shafa, Allahomma salle ala mohammad va ale mohammad " in interventional group and phone off in control group. Before and during pray meditation, 30, 60 minutes, 3 and 6 hours after pray meditation pain intensity, blood pressure, heart rate and respiratory rate were measured.
Statistically significant improvement in pain score was found at 3 and 6 hours after pray meditation than control group 1. However, there was no significant difference in the physiological responses systolic and diastolic blood pressure, respiration, and heart rate any time between the groups. Religion and spirituality intervention such as pray meditation could be used as one of non-pharmacological pain management techniques for reducing pain after cesarean surgery.

In addition, the particles were characterized by X-ray powder diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, and vibrating sample magnetometry.
In vitro cytotoxicity testing showed that the PNIPAAm-MAA-coated magnetic nanoparticles had no cytotoxicity and were biocompatible, indicating their potential for biomedical application. Keywords: magnetic nanoparticles, drug loading, doxorubicin release, biocompatibility.
Higher emotional intelligence is related to lower test anxiety among students. Whereas TA is a specific case of social phobia, emotional intelligence EI is an umbrella term covering interpersonal and intrapersonal skills, along with positive stress management, adaptability, and mood. In the present study, we tested the hypothesis that higher EI and lower TA are associated.
Further, sex differences were explored. Method: During an exam week, a total of university students completed questionnaires covering sociodemographic information, TA, and EI. Relative to male participants, female participants reported higher TA scores, but not EI scores. Intrapersonal and interpersonal skills and mood predicted low TA, while sex, stress management, and adaptability were excluded from the equation.
Conclusion: The pattern of results suggests that efforts to improve intrapersonal and interpersonal skills, and mood might benefit students with high TA. Specifically, social commitment might counteract TA. Keywords: test anxiety, emotional intelligence, students, interpersonal skills, intrapersonal skills. Nanotechnology-based inhalation treatments for lung cancer: state of the art. Recent studies and growing clinical application in cancer nanotechnology showed the huge potential of NPs as drug carriers in cancer therapy, including in lung carcinoma for diagnosis, imaging, and theranostics.
Researchers have confirmed that nanotechnology-based inhalation chemotherapy is viable and more effective than conventional chemotherapy, with lesser side effects. Recently, many nanocarriers have been investigated, including liposomes, polymeric micelles, polymeric NPs, solid lipid NPs, and inorganic NPs for inhalation treatments of lung cancer. Yet, the toxicity of such nanomaterials to the lungs tissues and further distribution to other organs due to systemic absorption on inhalation delivery is a debatable concern. Here, prospect of NPs-based local lung cancer targeting through inhalation route as well as its associated challenges are discussed.
Keywords: nanoparticles, lung cancer, inhalational chemotherapy, drug targeting, nanotoxicity. Approximately 1. Cyclopia typically presents with a median single eye or a partially divided eye in a single orbit, absent nose, and a proboscis above the eye. Extracranial malformations described in stillbirths with cyclopia include polydactyl, renal dysplasia, and an omphalocele.
The etiology of this rare syndrome, which is incompatible with life, is still largely unknown. Most cases are sporadic. Heterogeneous risk factors have been implicated as possible causes. This newborn was the first baby to a non-consanguineous family, and a healthy year-old mother, with no history of drug ingestion or febrile illnesses during pregnancy.
Antenatal history revealed severe hydrocephalus diagnosed early by intrauterine ultrasound but the pregnancy was not terminated because of the lack of medical legitimization in the country. On examination, the newborn was found to have a dysmorphic face, with a median single eye, absence of nose, micrognathia, and a proboscis above the eye, all of which made cyclopia the possible initial diagnosis. Multiple unusual abdominal defects were present that include a huge omphalocele containing whole liver and spleen, urinary bladder extrophy, and undefined abnormal external genitalia, which called for urgent confirmation.
Brain MRI was done and revealed findings consistent with alobar holoprosencephaly cyclopia. Antiviral therapy: a perspective.
This hypothesis has not been reported before. In some chronic blood-borne viral infections, the virus remains systemic and persistent for extended periods of time, with adverse effects that weaken the immune system. Blood titers of virus and its toxins are proportional to the severity of the disease, and their reduction can alleviate symptoms, leading to improved health.
Several blood-borne viral infections can be overcome by the young, but are life-threatening in the elderly. It is known that some older people have extreme difficulty tolerating viral infections such as influenza and the common cold. Further, several types of viral infection persist throughout the life of the individual and cannot be eliminated by conventional treatments. Well-known infections of this type include HIV and hepatitis B. In the case of Ebola virus, patients remain infectious as long as their blood contains the virus. According to the present hypothesis, an extracorporeal viral antibody column EVAC is proposed for elimination or reduction of the blood viral titer when treating blood-borne viral infection.
It is anticipated that EVAC would reduce mortality caused by blood-borne viral infections in the elderly since reduction of blood virus titers would improve health, leading to improved overall patient performance. Such enhancement would also make conventional therapies even more effective. The Arab intellectuals or Muslims alike, who have received Western education and have decided to live in Western countries in the first half of twentieth century, have actually benefited from their modern secular education.

However, the large number of educated Arab people does not always fulfill the promise of transformation of the social conditions of the Arab World. Pseudo modernization—to say that there has never been any modernization as it emerged from the middle class as in Europe, but was initiated mainly by the elites—has kept Arab intellectuals in the West completely in the dark and unable to offer radical solution to the crises of.

Antimicrobial activity of metal oxide nanoparticles against Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria: a comparative study. For this reason, nanotechnology has attracted a great deal of attention from the scientific community. Metal oxide nanomaterials like ZnO and CuO have been used industrially for several purposes, including cosmetics, paints, plastics, and textiles. A common feature that these nanoparticles exhibit is their antimicrobial behavior against pathogenic bacteria.
Methods and results: Nanosized particles of three metal oxides ZnO, CuO, and Fe2O3 were synthesized by a sol—gel combustion route and characterized by X-ray diffraction, Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy, and transmission electron microscopy techniques. X-ray diffraction results confirmed the single-phase formation of all three nanomaterials. We used these nanomaterials to evaluate their antibacterial activity against both Gram-negative Escherichia coli and Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Gram-positive Staphylococcus aureus and Bacillus subtilis bacteria.
Conclusion: Among the three metal oxide nanomaterials, ZnO showed greatest antimicrobial activity against both Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria used in this study. It was observed that ZnO nanoparticles have excellent bactericidal potential, while Fe2O3 nanoparticles exhibited the least bactericidal activity. Perception of academic stress among Health Science Preparatory Program students in two Saudi universities. Students spend their first university year in a combined extensive teaching program before they can be assigned to a particular health science specialty.
It is thought that students enrolled in a highly competitive environment such as HSPP with a long list of potential stressors, including developmental, academic overload, language barriers and competition, are more disposed to stress and stress-related complications. This study aims to measure the level of academic stress and to determine its risk factors in students enrolled in HSPP-adapted local universities in Saudi Arabia. Both universities adopt the HSPP system.
