Nutritional and organoleptic properties of three common Nigerian foods cooked with three different energy sources

This study investigates the nutritional and organoleptic properties of rice, beans and yam cooked with firewood, biogas and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) that is, each of these foods was cooked with these energy sources. The biogas was generated from cow dung using a 10 m3 digester at the National Center for Energy Research and Development, University of Nigeria, Nsukka. The substrate (cow dung) used for generating...

Combining 1000 mg oral acetaminophen with 75 mg intramuscular Diclofenac of analgesic efficacy for acute renal colic treatment

In this study, we compared oral acetaminophen alone versus intramuscular diclofenac alone versus both together in the treatment of acute renal colic. A prospective, randomized, and double-blind study was conducted in the Emergency Department. Patients were divided into three groups, which were given either acetaminophen + placebo (n = 25), diclofenac sodium + placebo (n = 25) or acetaminophen + diclofenac...

Aeromagnetic data interpretation to locate buried faults in Riyadh Region, Saudi Arabia

High resolution aeromagnetic data and various filtered maps are used in the present study to detect buried faults in the Riyadh region, Saudi Arabia. Filtering techniques such as Butterworth filter, tilt derivative, source edge detection (SED) and Euler deconvolution (ED) were used to map the structural lineaments in the study area. In this respect, the interpretation of the magnetic anomaly maps indicates that the area...

Malware detection based on evolving clustering method for classification

Malware is a computer program that can replicate itself and cause potential damage in data files. The high speed of the computers and networks increased the virus spread. To avoid the virus infection and the data loss, it is important to use an efficient and effective method for virus detection. This paper proposes an approach for malware detection based on the evolving clustering method. The...

Antifungal potential of Parthenium hysterophorus L. plant extracts against Fusarium solani

Fusarium wilt, caused by Fusarium solani (Mart.) Sacc, is an economically important disease of potato in Pakistan. Recent studies have shown that plant pathogens can be controlled by plant products as these are biodegradable, exhibit structural diversity and complexity. Presently, antifungal bioassays were conducted to confirm mycotoxic potential of root, shoot and leaf of Parthenium...
