This descriptive and analytical study was conducted in shendi City to determine concentrations level of fluoride in ground water.&nbsp; 150 samples of ground water were tested per season (50 samples for each season), The water samples were collected from ground water sources (wells), distribution system and storage facilities that are used directly for drinking purpose in the community per seasons. Analyzing of samples had been completed according to standard methods for examinations of water, in this study used photometer device for determination concentrations of fluoride. Our study revealed that: the quality of ground water in study area is low fluoride content and below the optimum levels that recommended by WHO and SSMO guidelines for drinking water and seasonal variations have effects on fluoride’s solubility and concentrations. Based on the findings of this study we recommend that:&nbsp; community must not depend totally on ground water as main source for fluoride, and community in study area should be use other sources for fluoride intake to obtain on daily required amount of fluoride for protection the health.</p> 2022-04-30T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Abdallah Ahmed Adam Belal, Basheer Mohammed El hassan, Adam Dawria Ibrahim https://www.granthaalayahpublication.org/journals/index.php/granthaalayah/article/view/4494 SURGICAL MANAGEMENT OF PATIENTS DIAGNOSED WITH MALIGNANT PHYLLODES TUMOR OF THE BREAST IN THE NATIONAL ONCOLOGY INSTITUTE “DR.

Initially, it notes that the interaction between the military and the civilian population is inevitable both in times of peace and during conflicts, while occasionally this interaction even requires and/or results in the use of force or arms for the achievement of the goals of the operations. Consequently, human rights are violated in the process. This article thus seeks to assess the derogation and limitation of human rights on the premise of national security, public safety and order as the arguments for the justification for violations of the rights during military operations and argues that a balance must be found between derogation and limitation of the rights on the one hand and the respect for and protection of the enjoyment of the right and freedoms on the other hand. The article thus recommends the integration of human rights into military law and training of commissioned and non-commissioned officers in the Nigeria Military.</p> 2022-04-30T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Owala Silas Odhiambo https://www.granthaalayahpublication.org/journals/index.php/granthaalayah/article/view/4528 DIGITAL CURRENCY VS. CRYPTOCURRENCY AND BLOCKCHAIN 2022-03-16T03:20:52+00:00 Sarita Mishra Kolhe dr.saritamishra9@gov.in <p>Despite the Reserve Bank of India consistently raising concerns over the dangers of cryptocurrencies primarily its use is facilitating money laundering and terror financing –India has emerged as a blossoming crypto market contributing billions of dollars in trading volume. In recent years, though cryptocurrencies have gained momentum with various investors yet they have not made any significant impact due to the volatility of the transactions. The fact that cryptocurrencies require various kinds of tools like wallets, computer, internet connectivity and various other services, their usage have been restricted to only those who are technologically sound. As a result, a vast majority of the population do not have the technological know-how and hence are unable to use them. Furthermore, the complexities involved in these transactions have reduced their trust and acceptability. One of the major shortcomings is that the cryptocurrency network can only validate the payment but not the delivery of various products and services. Hence, buyer of products and services are handicapped as the network does not simultaneously validate both sides of the transactions. The sharp volatility in the value of cryptocurrencies over relatively short period of time are a major issue due to which, maintaining price stability becomes extremely difficult. Furthermore, the absence of regulatory mechanisms and decentralised nature of the transactions raises various fear and apprehension that cryptocurrencies may be used for illegal activities. The solution to get over some of the shortcomings of cryptocurrencies is the issue of digital currency by the Central Bank. The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has warned of the risks posed by cryptocurrencies especially in emerging and developing countries and has suggested coordinated action to put in place global standards for cryptocurrencies. According to the IMF, “Determining valuation is not the only challenge in the crypto ecosystem: identification, monitoring, and management of risks which defy regulators and firms are areas of concern. These include operational and financial integrity, risks from crypto assets exchanges and wallets, investor protection, inadequate reserves and inaccurate disclosure for some stable coins. According to the IMF, capital flow management may need to be fine-tuned due to digital currencies. “Crypto’s cross-sector and cross-border remit limits the effectiveness of national approaches. Countries are taking very different strategies, and existing laws and regulations may not allow for national approaches that comprehensively cover all elements of these assets. Importantly, many crypto service providers operate across borders, making the task for supervision and enforcement more difficult. Uncoordinated regulatory measures may facilitate potentially destabilizing capital flows”. In the Union Budget of 2022-23 it has been proposed that, the Reserve Bank of India would be issuing Digital Currency which would go a long way for identifying, monitoring, regulating, management of risks, and capital flow management as well as in mitigating the financial stability crisis stemming from the crypto eco-system. Furthermore, a structured taxation regime of 30 % on virtual digital assets, as well as 1 % TDS would have the potency to track investments or profits generated/ losses incurred in this type of trading of virtual digital assets. The issuance of Digital Currency by RBI as well as bringing the same within the ambit of a structured taxation regime would lead to regulation of liquidity as well as volatility and would ensure stability in the economy.</p> 2022-05-03T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Dr. Sarita Mishra Kolhe https://www.granthaalayahpublication.org/journals/index.php/granthaalayah/article/view/4556 IMMUNOCYTOCHEMICAL EVALUATION OF TOLL-LIKE RECEPTORS ON BREAST CANCER CELL LINES UNDER THE TREATMENT OF WORTMANNIN AND THALIDOMIDE IN VITRO 2022-04-12T21:10:19+00:00 Melike Ozgul Onal melikeeozgul@gmail.com Elgin TURKOZ ULUER drelginturkoz@yahoo.com Gamze TANRIOVER gamzetanriover@yahoo.com Vissun Sevinç İnan sevincinan@yahoo.com <p><strong>Aim: </strong>The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of the PI3K inhibitor Wortmannin and the angiogenesis inhibitor Thalidomide on Toll-Like Receptors (TLR) on breast cancer cell lines which have non (67NR) and high (4T1) metastatic potential using immunocytochemical technique.</p> <p><strong>Material and Method: </strong>The cells were evaluated using avidin-biotin-peroxidase indirect immunocytochemistry method. Anti-TLR2, anti-TLR4, anti-MyD88, anti-PI3K and anti-NFκB primary antibodies were performed after 24h and 48h administrations of Wortmannin and Thalidomide. The distribution of immunocytochemical intensities of primary antibodies were graded semi-quantitatively as mild (1), moderate (2), strong (3) and very strong (4). The mean values of the staining intensities and the percentage of positively stained cells were calculated using the H-Score. Statistics were comparatively evaluated by using the One-way ANOVA test. Significance was defined as p&lt;0.05.</p> <p><strong>Results: </strong>On the control group of 67NR breast cancer cell line, immunoreactivity of TLR2 was seen as very strong. While immunoreactivity of MyD88 was seen as strong, immunoreactivities of TLR4, NFκB and PI3K were observed as moderate in this group. On the control group of 4T1 breast cancer cell line, immunoreactivities of MyD88 and NFκB were seen as strong, while immunoreactivities of TLR2, TLR4 and PI3K were observed as moderate/strong in this group.</p> <p><strong>Conclusion: </strong>It was demonstrated by this study, that the effects on the 24th and 48th hour of the Wortmannin acts as an inhibitor of PI3K and Thalidomide acts as an inhibitor of NFκB were effective on TLR signaling pathway and related molecules on 67NR and 4T1 breast cancer cell lines which have different metastatic properties. It was concluded that these drugs have an important role as inhibitors in cancer signaling pathways included invasion and metastasis. As future expectation, they might be used therapeutically in addition to classical treatments on cancer treatment.</p> 2022-05-03T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Melike Ozgul Onal, Elgin TURKOZ ULUER, Gamze TANRIOVER, Vissun Sevinç İnan https://www.granthaalayahpublication.org/journals/index.php/granthaalayah/article/view/4565 THE INFLUENCE OF RESOURCE BASED VIEW, STRATEGIC MANAGEMENT INFORMATION SYSTEM ON PERFORMANCE OF PERSONNEL IN INFORMATION INTELLIGENCE TECHNOLOGY IN STATE INTELLIGENCE AGENCY MEDIATED IN STRATEGIC POLICY 2022-04-17T05:17:30+00:00 Bambang Purwanto bpurwwanto@gmail.com Zulkifli Husini bpurwwanto@gmail.com Sarfilianty Anggiani bpurwwanto@gmail.com Kusnadi bpurwwanto@gmail.com <p>This research is aimed at the interests of the Organization of the State Intelligence Agency, especially the Deputy for Information Technology, which is the implementing element of some of the tasks and functions of the State Intelligence Agency in the Field of Technology Intelligence who is directly responsible to the Head of the State Intelligence Agency.

It has also evaluated the effectiveness of Nike’s PR strategies and its customer-based brand equity based on customers' perceptions through rating on a five-point Likert scale. <br>This study has used the proposition of positivism philosophy and deductive reasoning. This means seven hypotheses were developed based on literature and theories associated with public relations and customer-based brand equity. Primary data from the customers of Nike were collected to test those hypotheses. The strategy of a survey through an online questionnaire tool has been implemented to collect data from Nike customers in the UK. A sample of 151 customers was chosen based on the convenience sampling technique. The data analysis followed statistical and mathematical techniques, including frequencies, charts, percentage analysis, standards deviation, arithmetic mean, correlation, and regression. <br>This study identified that PR strategies have significant positive impacts on customer-based brand equity. This means all the seven PR strategies considered in this study have significant positive impacts on CBBE. The correlation and regression between PR strategies and CBBE indicated that the PR strategies of Nike and customer-based brand equity are intercorrelated with each other and overall PR strategies have significant positive impacts on CBBE with β = 0.817 and p = 0.000. PR strategies implemented by Nike are significantly effective based on customers’ perceptions in the UK.

Both the countries, being prominent international players constitute a major part in global trade especially in the export of wheat, crude oil, raw material for industries and so on. The world market was hit massively on account of invasion of Ukraine by Russia on 24 February 2022, from when the stock markets tanked even in India. This paper is an attempt to understand and analyse the effects of the Russia-Ukraine conflict on Indian stock market by taking Nifty-50 index as the base. The Event Study methodology is used in this study, considering the changes in Nifty-50 indices for an event period of 16 days (8 days of estimation period+8 days of observation period) from 8th February 2022 to 4th March 2022. The index values thus obtained and analysed elucidated that there has been a significant impact of Russia-Ukraine war on Nifty-50 in particular and Indian stock market in general.</p> 2022-05-05T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Gururaj P, Mr. Sanath Kumar K, Ms. Deepa C.

A constructed wetland system that is specifically engineered for water quality improvement as a primary purpose is termed as a ‘Constructed Wetland Treatment System’ (CWTS). In the past, many such systems were constructed to treat low volumes of wastewater loaded with easily degradable organic matter for isolated populations in urban areas. However, widespread demand for improve in water quality, and water reclamation and reuse, is currently the driving force for the implementation of CWTS all over the world. Recent concerns over wetland losses have generated a need for the creation of&nbsp;&nbsp; manmade wetlands, which are intended to emulate the functions and values of natural wetlands that have been destroyed. Natural characteristics are applied to CWTS with emergent macrophyte stands that duplicate the physical, chemical and biological processes of natural wetland systems. The number of CWTS in use has very much increased in the past 50 years. The use of constructed wetlands is gaining rapid interest. Most of these systems cater for tertiary treatment from towns and cities. They are larger in size, usually using surface-flow system to remove low concentration of nutrient (N and P) and suspended solids. However, in some countries, these constructed wetland treatment systems are usually used to provide secondary treatment of domestic sewage for village populations. These constructed wetland systems have been seen as an economically attractive, energy-efficient way of providing high standards of wastewater treatment.</p> <p>Typically, wetlands are constructed for one or more of four primary purposes: creation of habitat to compensate for natural wetlands converted for agriculture and urban development, water quality improvement, flood control, and production of food and fiber (constructed aquaculture wetlands). In present research the sewage water is treated by constructing Horizontal sub – surface flow constructed wetland, and reed grass is used as vegetation to treat waste and make the sewage waste water clean.</p> 2022-05-17T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Dr. Shalini Saxena https://www.granthaalayahpublication.org/journals/index.php/granthaalayah/article/view/4580 RELEVANCE OF GRAMMAR 2022-05-18T21:16:26+00:00 Manoj Kumar Singh manojkumarsingh1971jan1971@gmail.com <p>This piece of paper presents the practical and theoretical utility of grammar. From the very beginning, grammarians implemented their basic concept to the readers what we find today. Grammar, as is known, is a science that articulates us to intuit both writing and speaking English in a correct and concise way. Orthography, etymology, syntax, punctuation, and prosody are said to be the bases of grammar. Without utterances of these words, nothing can be imagined in grammar. They have been arranged in a sequence so that every next part may be semantic in use. Orthography is the smallest unit of etymology. The world of syntax is vast. Punctuation balances the sentences whereas prosody personifies them.</p> 2022-05-18T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Manoj Kumar Singh https://www.granthaalayahpublication.org/journals/index.php/granthaalayah/article/view/4573 TOP MANAGEMENT’S WILL TO SUPPORT SAFETY CULTURE 2022-05-20T21:17:17+00:00 Harbans Lal Kaila kailahl@hotmail.com <p>How Do Company Directors Support Safety Culture Excellence is a deep question to explore the goal of incidents-free status? This article presents a qualitative framework on the issues related to the top/site management at large that are responsible for weak safety culture at the corporates as well as sites resulting in incidents and fatalities. Qualitative research in this paper makes a lot of sense in this regard. 204 industry professionals participated in the study to reflect on the top/site management issues and solutions. Almost 80% industry professionals observed a lack of management’s will to support in safety culture, which amounts to a lag in business sustainability. Top managements need guidance about interventions leading to safety culture transformation.</p> 2022-05-20T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Harbans Lal Kaila https://www.granthaalayahpublication.org/journals/index.php/granthaalayah/article/view/IJRG22_A05_6117 EFFECT OF ULTRA-ENDURANCE PHYSICAL ACTIVITY ON THE RESPIRATORY HEALTH OF THE WOMEN RUNNERS 2022-05-20T21:17:07+00:00 Sailaja Lanka jatinsriraj@yahoo.co.in Gopikrishna Yarlagadda jatinsriraj@yahoo.co.in <p>Endurance physical activities like running are beneficial for enhancement in immunity and functional health. But excessive and high intensity sustained endurance physical activities like marathon and ultra-marathon running might affect negatively the immune capacity of the participants at least temporarily due to high inflammatory stress. Compromises in upper respiratory tract health may be common among recreational marathon runners. Methods: Thirty women recreational marathon runners above the age of forty years participated in the study. WURSS-44 questionnaire was used to quantify the URTI symptom scores of the participants on the previous day of the run, followed by after one day, three days, five days, seven and nine days. ANOVA was used to find out the variance among the different days at 0.05 level of significance. Results: Variance analysis indicated that there was significant difference among the different days URTI scores (F=3.2441at P of 0.0079) of the group and the Tukey’s HSD post hoc analysis brings out that there was significant difference between the run previous day score and the after seventh day score (4.78 at P of p&lt;0.05) and also significant difference between the post first day score and the post ninth day score (4.349 at P of p&lt;0.05) for the group. Conclusion: Above forty years women recreational runners’ group of the study experienced significant increments in their URTI symptoms score due to their acute marathon running event.</p> 2022-05-20T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Sailaja Lanka, Gopikrishna Yarlagadda
