    The objective of this study is to contribute to the improvement of knowledge on the feeding of Oreochromis niloticus. The trial required 2262 monosex O. niloticusjuveniles with average weights comprised between 21.10±1.04 and 39.70±1.27 g, distributed in 4 groups with two repetitions per feed in 2.5 and 3 Ares concrete basins. The juveniles were fed a control ration (Asmag) and the ration made from a mixture of 40% of dried brewer’s spent grains and 60% of fine wheat bran (Afab) during 180 days. The average live weight (ALW), the absolute weight gain (AWG), the daily individual growth (DIG), the specific growth rate (SGR), the feed conversion index (FCI), the protein efficiency coefficient (PEC), the total length (TLg), the standard length (SLg), the condition factor (K), the survival rate (SR), the quantity of feed distributed and the manufacturing costs of akg of feed were evaluated. It emerges from these results that, except the DIG, FCI, SGR, PEC, K and SR that showed no significant difference (p>0.05) at the level of the feeds, the ALW, AWG, TLg andSLg of the fish fed the ration Asmag were significantly (p<0.05) higher than those recorded in fish submitted to the ration Afab. For Asmag and Afab, it was obtained respectively an ALW of 148.01gvs 90.48 g; anAWGof 16.52 g vs 10.44 g;aTLg of 19.64 cm vs 16.50 cm and aSLg of15.50 cmvs 13.10 cm. Moreover, the cost price of Afab (61,040.88 FCFA) was lower than that of Asmag (308,368 CFA).In view of growth performance and production costs of feed recorded, the feed locally made (Afab) could be recommended to farmers producing O. niloticus.

    Background: Teachers are a high-priority group because they are role models for pupils and influential members of society. Teaching is a difficult and stressful career, and instructors experience stress when the demands of the circumstance surpass their abilities to deal with them. School teachers are consistently burden by excessive workload. They may feel burdened or intimidated, and as a result some teacher may resort to protests probably due to excessive stress. Coping as the behavioral and cognitive efforts a person uses to manage the demands of a stressful situation. Coping resources allow a person to deal with stresses more effectively, lessen the severity of symptoms, and recover from exposure more quickly. Life skills are important for the promotion of the health and well‑being of children and adolescents and to develop knowledge, positive attitude, and values to lead a healthy life in future. Objectives •To assess the level of stress and coping among school teachers •To evaluate the effectiveness of life skill training on stress and coping among school teachers •To associate the level of stress and coping with the selected demographic variables Materials and methods: Quasi experimental research design with one group pre-test and post-test was adopted. Sixty three school teachers were selected by using stratified cluster random sampling technique. The data was collected and pre-test data collection was done by using Perceived Stress Scale(r =0.937) and brief COPE Scale ( r =0.911 ) to interview method. 63 subjects were divided into two groups and life skill training was given for the duration of 45 min twice a week for 10 days and the post test was conducted. The data were analyzed in terms of both descriptive and inferential statistics by using paired t- test and Chi-square test. Results and discussion: The study showed that the post-test level of stress of teachers mean score (10.78) are significantly less than the pre-test level of stress (mean score (18.1). And the post-test level of coping mean scores (63.78) are significantly less than the pre-test level of coping mean scores (59.17) by using paired t - test (4.272). This study reveals that life skill training has highly statistical significance in reduction of stress and coping among teachers at P-value <0.001. Conclusion: Thus, this study proves that Life skill training was effective in reduction of stress and coping among teachers.

    The classical interactions in gravity and in electrostatics have been revisited in (1-4) and it follows that the temperatures in black body equilibrium are taken into account for the neutral and charged masses. This new conception of the black body radiations effects in photonic fields which are superimposed in the structure of space-time in quantum entities EVTD2 requires that inside the entities exist material elements (concretizing the intimate substrate of space-time) to capture and store these electromagnetic energies, which were originally named "Substratum" (5). These Substrata corpuscles would be correlated with the positive and negative pressures where the attractive and repulsive effects are generated in the new conceptions of gravity and electrostatics. So, this Substratum subjected to positive pressures would be a good sensor of electrostatic energy (photons) but also a good provider of returned caloric energy, for example in greenhouse effects for its atmospheric environment if necessary. These are the starting points for a certain understanding of the different greenhouse effect yields of CO2 and CH4 molecules, whose RECH4 / RECO2 ratio is recognized as being in the neighborhood of 25. We must therefore determine what is the common and quantifiable correlation between these molecules that makes it possible to approximate it to 25. It is a question here of determining, at best, the respective intrinsic and adapted volumes of compliant energy storage of these two gases.

    Covid-19 disease is a fatal viral respiratory disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus. A wide range of clinical findings are seen, from asymptomatic to death. Therefore, it has been observed that empirical antibiotics were frequently used in hospitalizations due to secondary coinfection concerns. The data of 1186 hospitalized patients were analyzed retrospectively.4 groups(30 patients per group) consisting of a total of 120 patients were formed homogeneously. All patients who fulfilled the criteria(Covid PCR test positive, diagnosed with pneumonia, treated with Favipiravir, normal white blood cell and neutrophil, didn’t have bacterial infection, didn’t receive anti-inflammatory and steroid-derived drug) were included in the study. Data of all patients (age, gender, comorbidity, laboratory parameters, tomography reports, antibiotic and other drugs, need for intensive care and mortality) were evaluated retrospectively. The first group was levofloxacin, the second group combination of levofloxacin and ceftriaxone, the third group combination of levofloxacin and piperacillin tazobactam, and the fourth group combination of levofloxacin and meropenem. Combination treatment with levofloxacin ceftriaxone and levofloxacin meropenem is more effective in patients with comorbidities. Levofloxacin meropenem or levofloxacin ceftriaxone treatment in patients with interstitial pneumonia and levofloxacin or levofloxacin piperacillin tazobactam treatment in patients with lobular pneumonia is more effective.Levofloxacin ceftriaxone treatment is more effective on the decrease in CRP value,but there is no statistically significant difference between all treatments (p<0.05). Levofloxacin decreases hospital stay more than levofloxacin meropenem. Levofloxacin ceftriaxone decrease hospital stay more than levofloxacin piperacillin tazobactam and levofloxacin meropenem (p<0.05).There is no statistically significant difference between levofloxacin and levofloxacin ceftriaxone as length of hospital stay. Treatment cost sare have been found as levofloxacin

    Background: The existence of stigmatizing attitudes with individuals suffering from mental disorders is unequivocal, timeless and observed even among mental health professionals. The impact of such stigmatization varies from social exclusion to lack of medical support, ending up, at times, in preventable deaths. Medical education institutions still find it difficult to deconstruct the stigma among students, and the search for effective methods, in short and long term, guides the main studies in the area and is also the main focus.Objective: Assess the effects of duration of mental health training in students during the medical internship in reducing the stigmatization of people with mental disorders.Method: A quasi-experimental study to assess the impact of an educational program during the medical internship in mental health. The sample consisted of 70 and 67 medical students in their last year in college, in 2018and 2019, respectively. Questionnaires were applied to assess the extent and typification of stigma, concerning schizophrenia and self-perception on medication management and treatment of psychiatric disorders. The instruments used the Three-Point Likert Scale to assess the results. The questionnaires were applied immediately before and after exposure to the educational program, which lasted four and nine weeks in 2018 and 2019, respectively. The mean values of self-perception and stigma were compared between both occasions using the Student T-test. Results: the mean post-test scores regarding self-perception and stigma did not show significant difference between the classes. Conclusion: Future studies need to observe other potential variables to improve the effectiveness of intervention programs to reduce stigmatization to people in psychic suffering.

    Studies on long lines of power transmission remain a controversial subject up to this day in view of the unsatisfactory results. These studies often address cases where the line is connected to a node which is perfectly voltage regulated. Likewise, the telegraph equations, reflecting how these lines work, express the voltage and current of the source as a function of the voltage and current along the line. Thus, our study examines the case of a line connected to an unregulated node. Regarding the telegraph equations dedicated to long lines, we will take care to express the voltage, the current and the joule losses according to the length of the line considered as variable while the voltage and the current of the source constitute constant. This way of approaching the study allows us to design an optimal compensation plan in order to maintain an ideal voltage profile.

    Water is renewable resource occurs in three forms viz, Liquid, solid, vapor (gaseous), all these tree forms of water are extremely useful to man. No life can exist without water. Since, water is an essential for life as like that of air, it has been estimated that in the human body two-third portion is constituted by water. The water is not only essential for survival of human beings, but also for animals, plants and other living beings. The present study is attempted to identify the groundwater contamination zones using remote sensing and GIS techniques. Using sequential by preparing of thematic maps like EC, pH, Ca and TDS maps managing these GIS layers in Geo-database and assigning weightages based on the correlative factors that appear to be important in holding / processing of recharge of water and ground water contamination content. This study helped to delineate the part have been classified as high contamination zones.

    The study focusses on the influence ride hailing services have on the customers vehicle buying consumer behaviour. It also discusses the possible factors on which the customers preference of either is based on. These factors, taken based on the prior study, are the traffic situation, the traveling distance, costs involved for travel, convenience, availability of the alternatives, safety and self-efficacy. The study had 258 respondents who have used the ride hailing services before. The results suggest that shared mobility offered by taxi aggregators does affect the vehicle buying consumer behaviour up to a certain extent. Further it is also found that traffic, convenience, availability of alternatives, safety as well as self-efficacy play a crucial role in the value that the consumer attaches to shared mobility.

    Methodology: The study was conducted in the Post graduate department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology of Lalla Ded Hospital, GMC Srinagar, a tertiary care centre over a period of 18 months. 100 caesarean sections performed on 100 female subjects in second stage of labor were included in this study based on inclusion criteria. Data Collection: Obstetrical, maternal and fetal baseline criteria and outcomes were recorded and compared.All the cases, that fulfilled the inclusion criteria were analyzed in terms of indications, instrumentation before caesarean section; intra operative complications like hematuria, uterine incision extension, lower uterine segment tear, atonic PPH; postoperative complications like febrile illness, wound infection; and neonatal morbidity and mortality by way of NICU admission, APGAR score, neonatal sepsis and stay in the hospital. Results The mean maternal age at presentation was 24.66 (± 3.42) years with the range from 17 to 35 years. Maximum number of cases were seen between the age group of 20-25 years (58; 58 %), followed by 25-30 years (28; 28%).Out of 100 pregnancies, 74 were primigravida and 26 were multigravida pregnancies.The gestational age was between 37-39 weeks in 94 deliveries and only 6 deliveries were above 40 weeks. The mean gestational age was 37.94 ± 1.03 weeks. Majority of patients belonged to Low Socioeconomic group (64; 64%) followed by Middle Socioeconomic group (34; 34%). Conclusion: Caesarean section in the second stage of labor is a challenging operation with distortion of pelvic anatomy and a fetal head that is often deeply impacted in the maternal pelvis. So, proper fetal and pelvic assessment should be done to assess the potential impact of the fetus on the characteristics of the labor and every attempt should be made to avoid second stage caesarean section, if possible. When faced with difficult decisions relating to the management, a second opinion from a senior obstetrician should be sought. If second stage caesarean section is unavoidable, a multidisciplinary approach should be followed involving a senior anaesthetist, a senior obstetrician and a neonatologist

    In the year 2021 October /November an estimated 35 schools across Kenya were set on fire causing many to close down. This led to Ministry of Education’s directive to have students proceed on unprecedented half term recess from 19 November to 23 November 2021. Earlier on, waves of arson had been experienced. It is important to note that, despite the existence of school safety standards guidelines since 2008, cases of student’s tragedies in schools as a result of insecurity have continued to be reported more so in boarding schools every year. For instance, in Rangwe Sub-county, Kenya between 2012 and 2018, 8 students lost their lives in a Girls Boarding Primary School while, properties of unknown value were burnt down when fierce fires gutted down dormitories at a girl’s secondary school and a boy’s secondary school. In another instance, a 17- year- old student was arrested after he was found with a gun in school at a boy’s secondary school. The purpose of the study was to investigate the influence of safety standards training on implementation of school safety standards in boarding schools in Rangwe Sub-county. The study established that training on implementation of school safety standards accounted for 40% of the variation in the implementation of safety standards. This means that training on implementation of safety standards enhanced the implementation of school safety standards in boarding schools in Rangwe sub-county. The study concluded that safety standards training influenced the implementation of safety standards in boarding schools in Rangwe Sub-county. Based on the findings of the study, it is recommended that, principals, head teachers, teachers, students and security personnel be regularly trained on management of school safety standards. The findings of this study are significant to educational managers by enhancing their understanding of training which shapes the implementation of safety standards in boarding schools. It also forms baseline information for future research in related areas.

    Kenyan schools have continued to experience insecurity for many years. The most remarkable one is the Kyanguli High School fire tragedy case in which 67 students perished in the year 2001. This led to formulation of safety standards manual for schools in Kenya in 2008. Despite the existence of school safety standards since 2008, cases of student’s tragedies in schools as a result of insecurity have continued to be reported more so in boarding schools. For instance, in Rangwe Sub-county, Kenya between 2012 and 2018, eight students lost their lives in a Girls Boarding Primary School while, properties of unknown value were burnt down when fierce fires gutted down dormitories at a girl’s secondary school and a boy’s secondary school. In another instance, a 17-year-old student was arrested after he was found with a gun in school at a boy’s secondary school. The purpose of the study was to establish the influence of financial resources on implementation of school safety standards in boarding schools in Rangwe sub-county. The study established that financial resources accounted for 33% of the variation in the implementation of safety standards in boarding schools in Rangwe Sub-county. This means that financial resources enhanced the implementation of school safety standards in boarding school in Rangwe sub-county. The study concluded that financial resources influenced the implementation of safety standards in boarding schools in Rangwe Sub-county. Based on the findings of this study, it is recommended that school Boards of Management should allocate sufficient funds for implementation of safety standards in schools. The study is significant to educational managers by enhancing their understanding of factors which shape the implementation of safety standards in boarding schools. It also forms baseline information for future research in related areas.

    The study was carried out in the field, in the southwest of Chad during the 2018 agricultural campaign. The objective of this work was to evaluate the biocidal and fertilizing effects of residues resulting from the extraction of Jatropha curcas oil on the control of pests of legume pods in the field. The experimental device was a split plot (2x4) with two factors: the first factor is the legume species (Vigna subterranea and Arachis hypogeae) and the second the treatments (J. curcasseedcake, J. curcas seedpowder, urea or positive control and control or negative control). The tests were repeated four times. Data on growth parameters, legume production and soil characteristics were collected. The results obtained indicated that the treatments had a significant effect (P <0.05) on the growth, development, dry biomass and seed yield of the plants. They have made it possible to raise the level of soil fertility to make it more profitable for agricultural activities. The insecticidal and insect repellant potential contained in the seeds of J. curcas helped to limit the damage caused by centipedes on peanut and bambara groundnut pods. This agricultural practice helps to widen the way for the practice and promotion of organic farming.

    Objective: The objective of the study is to identify the gaps, highlight those areas where delay in discharge of inpatients can be eliminated and recommend accordingly, so that the hospital discharge process can be managed smoothly. Methods: A prospective observational study, with data of patients admitted in medical and surgical departments was conducted in a convenient sample of 280 inpatients and the quick changeover approach, also known as the single-minute exchange of die (SMED), was selected as it aims at increasing productivity by reducing waiting times and unused human talent. The data was collected and analyzed from August 2021 to October 2021 at tertiary care teaching Hospital. Results: The average time taken for 32% of patients discharge is 8-10 hrs, 26 % of patients is 6-8 hrs, 20% of patients is 4-6 hrs, 16% of patients is more than 10 hrs and 6% of patients is 2-4 hrs. Using Ishikawa diagram, the possible causes of delayed discharges are illustrated. Showing Pareto chart, the reasons contributing for delay in discharge process, it highlights the credit, billing and patient factor in delay of discharge. Showing 20% of delay in vacating causes 80 % of delay in bed allotment. After the process diagnosis and data collection, the quick changeover approach is conducted before and after the implementation. Conclusion: The delays were mainly related to processes that could be improved by lean intervention. Orienting the hospital settings with measures to prevent causes and implement changes to decrease the effect of delayed discharge process. Thus, interventions should be developed to reduce overcrowding, for higher availability of hospital beds and to improve patient satisfaction.

    Diet and nutrition are considered to play a cardinal role in maintaining overall health among individuals. Diet is the amount of food consumed by the individuals: whereas nutrition is the process of utilizing food for growth, metabolism and repair of tissues. Periodontal diseases are polymicrobial disease characterized by infiltration of leukocytes, loss of connective tissue, alveolar bone resorption, and formation of periodontal pockets. Periodontal disease is a chronic inflammatory disease, which leads to alteration of the micronutrient levels. Any imbalance of the micronutrient levels leads to increased susceptibility to oxidative damage of tissues. In order to sustain the periodontal tissues in both health and disease depends on the ample source of essential nutrients available to the host. Maintaining a balance of these trace minerals is essential to prevent progression of chronic conditions like periodontitis. Depletion or lack of availability of these nutrients gives rise to malnutrition at either the macro or micronutrient level, both of which are detrimental to periodontal health as well as to general health.

    The new inventions in technology lead to more power consumption by more number of nonlinear loads, which in turn effecting the quality of power transmitted. The power transmitted in a line is needed to be of high quality. The flow of power basically depends on the line impedance, sending end and receiving end voltage magnitudes. Nonlinear loads create harmonic currents which in turn creates system resonance, capacitor overloading, decrease in efficiency, voltage magnitude changes. The simulation results show that FACTS devices improve the system stability; furthermore, the SSSC-based stabilizer provides a better effectiveness on damping power system oscillation.

    Nonlinear loads connected to electric energy distributionnetworks generate harmonic pollution. Such nonlinearloads drain currents with varying degree of harmoniccontents. The harmonic current components do not representuseful active power due to the frequency mismatch with the gridvoltage. A remedy to the harmonic current injection problem is to connect series controllers in transmission lines.

    Reactive power problems usually occur at the interconnection points of different systems or now in the deregulated market between different owners of transmission or distribution networks, reactive power generators and consumers. As reactive power is a local product its value to system security and voltage control very much depends on the location in the system. STATCOM is a device that regulates the voltage level or the reactive power in the system. It is used to maintain voltage stability, enlargement of critical clearing time. In this paper Simulation has been done with one example

    Antibiotic resistance is a global public health problem. Bacteria have developed different strategies that have allowed them to cope with the action of antibiotics, thus in a few years after the appearance of a new drug with antibacterial properties, strains of bacteria resistant to that new drug emerge. Extended spectrum beta lactamases are a group of bacterial enzymes that can inactivate different antibiotics. They have been found in different examples of Gram positive and negative pathogenic bacteria.

    If we consider on cultural aspect of ancient Indian history, we can say that kushana period is very relevant for it’s marvelous women sculptures. We found many types of women sculptures in this period, auspicious women figure is major part of this catalogue. With flow of time in Indian History there came numerous variations and developments in art forms and tradition, enriching Indian culture and aesthetics. In Kushana period of early ancient Indian history such enrichments in art and sculptures can be witnessed by a close look on women sculptures of the period. In each dynasty women’s representation through sculptures is remarkable and appreciable. It is a well known fact that in Shunga-Satavahana period art forms were based on pre determined parameters leaving limited scope for any deviation. With the beginning of Kushana period specially in northern India sculptures began to be created with new flow of thoughts. Thus like other forms of art, in sculptures also far reaching revolutionary changes took place that took art of that time out of strict discipline of well defined parameters giving it a relatively more open and liberal perspective and integument. Since Kanishka , the most revered king of Kushana dynasty, played decisive role in establishment and spread of Mahayana sect of Buddhist religion, the first depiction of Mahatma Buddha sculpture emerged under his patronage. His regime provided favorable environment for such sculptures. These factors encouraged Indian artisans to develop their creativity without any restraint, because of this there is an advent of a golden age of sculpture which was pioneered by Mathura school of art . with extremely beautiful and refined pieces of sculptures it filled entire north India with marvelous artifacts.

    Clinical competency of the critical care nurses should be reinforced to ensure provision of safe, effective and quality nursing care among the patients. A need to structure a training framework to reinforce these competencies was the focus of this study. A descriptive quasi experimental research design was utilized to assess the level of competence of the nurses both in the control and study group. The sample size was 100 out of the 216 population finalized after consideration of the inclusion criteria. Data were collected using self-assessment tool. BKAT and Unit Specific Competency Assessment Tool. The results revealed significant relationships between self-assessment and demographic profile specifically age (.005 and .049) in the pretest and posttest and educational attainment (.013) of control group. The results also revealed relationships on BKAT and years of experience (.015 and .038) pretest and posttest. Significant relationships were also established between unit specific competencies and demographic profile specifically on; Age and mechanical ventilator (.043) and age and Pulmonary Catheter (.036) from the control group and age and mechanical ventilator (.043) in the study group. Significant difference also existed between the level of competency of both groups on BKAT and Unit Specific competencies both at .001. All the results were compared and interpreted at 0.05 level of significance. The study concluded to reject the null hypothesis. Recommendation include adoption of the training framework formulated to reinforce clinical competencies of nurses

    With the arrival of an unanticipated and unprecedented situation of COVID-19 several things underwent major changes which include the education sector as well. The entire educational activities have been shifted to the online mode with a number of changes in the teaching-learning processes. Along with its advantages this sudden change has brought in a number of challenges with it. But those advantages and challenges differ from person to person and from one course to the other. The teacher education is one of those courses which has significant applied component in it. The practice component plays a very vital role in teacher education courses. The actual practicum or the internship component is hardly possible to be done online. Therefore, the challenges that the student-teachers and teacher-educators are facing in current times are quite disparate as compared to the other theory-based courses. Though online education is very flexible in terms of time and cost it has not escaped from its challenges. Having the knowledge of the effective usage of technology is a prerequisite for any kind of online learning. The study gives an account to the possibilities and challenges of teaching teachers online.

    Background: Diabetic foot disease has a major impact on the morbidity and mortality of patients. It is a complex clinical problem which needs multi disciplinary approach and well defined principles of treatment. One of the key components of treating these patients is the prudent selection of antibiotics based on deep tissue cultures. This reduces the associated morbidity and risk of major limb amputations. Methods: This clinical study was done in our tertiary level referral hospital. It is a cross sectional retrospective microbiological and clinical study done over a period of 12 months. It explores the associations between several variables (risk factors, severity of infection, development of complications and clinical outcomes) and the microbiological profile of the diabetic foot infections. Results: 90% of the patients had peripheral mixed neuropathy while 26% had a documented diabetic nephropathy. Most patients (61%) had a poor glycemic control with a HbA1c>7 while 39% had well controlled diabetes with HbA1c<7. Gram negative organisms were grown in 60% of surface swabs and 71% of intra operative specimens. Gram positive organisms were grown in 30% of surface swabs and 29% of intra operative specimens. 10% of the surface swabs had a mixed growth whereas none of the intra operative specimens had a mixed growth.The outcomes comprised of minor amputations of toe(s) and at trans metatarsal levels in 8 patients and major amputations above or below knee in 5 patients. None of the patients who had a positive culture of ESBL and MDR underwent major amputations. Conclusion: The judicious use of antibiotics based on deep tissue cultures can reduce the risk of major amputations. The role of revascularisation is pivotal in patients with peripheral arterial disease complicated by diabetic foot ulcers. The multi disciplinary approach is necessary to address the variables which effect the outcome of these patients.

    Background: Diabetes Mellitus is an increasing medical problem in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA). Current evidence suggests an epidemic proportion of this condition in this developing region, largely due to increasing urbanization and epidemiological transition. There are suggestions that the quality of diabetes care in Africa is suboptimal. However, there is unclear evidence to substantiate these claims. There was the need to systematically assess and summarise the existing evidence on quality of care among patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), whilst identifying any gaps in information and exploring possible barriers to care in a SSA context. This will provide policy makers and health care providers with a systematic overview of the available evidence on the state of diabetes care in this region from which they can base decision making. Aim and Objectives: The aim of the systematic review was to examine the existing quality of management of type 2 diabetes in SSA by addressing the following questions: i. How good is the current control of type 2 DM in SSA based on indicator outcome of glycaemia? ii. Have implemented strategies, treatment or interventions improved glycaemic control of type 2 DM in Sub-Saharan African countries? Methods: This study was a systematic review of quantitative studies. The population comprised people with type 2 diabetes in sub-Saharan Africa. All ages, gender, ethnicities irrespective of race, residence, locality, immigration status, educational background and socio-economic status were included. The studies included cross-sectional studies, experimental, quasi-experimental studies, observational studies and review papers. Only full papers as opposed to abstracts were included in the review. Conference proceedings, editorials and case reports were excluded. Two databases were explored to develop search strategies – MEDLINE via Pubmed (1946 to February 2013) and EMBASE via Ovid (1974 to April 2013). Terms such as glycaemia and hyperglycaemia, and terms related to these were used in the search strategy. The search included searching reference lists of derived papers and contacting experts. Data on measures of glycaemic control as primary outcome of interest were extracted and summarised upon. Secondary outcomes included process measures like the frequency of blood glucose levels documentation. Duration of diagnosed diabetes and assessment of diabetes complications were considered. The interventions or implementation strategies within studies or data collected on these were also assessed. Study quality was assessed based on components in a quality assessment tool from the Effective Public Health Practice Project. Results: Thirteen published studies were identified and included in the review. Eleven of these were cross-sectional studies, one was a prospective cohort study and another combined cross-sectional and cohort study. Education on diabetes management and prevention of complications seemed to be the most consistent intervention carried out, followed by drug treatment with oral hypoglycaemic agents and Insulin, then dietary measures. Target levels of HbA1c were generally less than 7% in almost all the studies. This is in keeping with the IDF and ADA guidelines. Target glycaemic control were consistently seen in less than 50% of the patients within studies. Conclusion: This review found the quality of care of type 2 diabetes based on glycaemic control, to be sub-optimal in sub-Sahara African countries. Therefore, quality of care needs to be improved upon in this region. It is likely that several interventions, mainly secondary preventive strategies, and implementation strategies identified would improve quality of care in this region. Targeted interventions and strategies specific to the local populace would be beneficial.

    The road network manager constantly needs information on the condition of paved roads in order to properly plan maintenance and renewal. The ideal would be to have a reliable model of the condition of the network and its degree of service. This work intends to build a road network model for Togo based on a characterization of the paved roads and prevailing climatic conditions. The characterization of the condition of the roads in their environment was based on extensive documentation and field surveys. The paved national Togolese road network supports heterogeneous class of T5 to T0 traffic, dominated by untreated bedrock structures (84.41%) mostly coated with asphaltic concrete (78.47%). The early onset of degradation, mainly of small amplitude, on the surface of the pavements is explained by the use of pavement materials without considering the diversity of traffic or climatic factors.

    Now a days prevalence of diabetes in increasing due to earlier onset of diabetes and the better treatment opportunities. Early onset Diabetes in young females is commonly associated with pregnancy. Diabetes in pregnancy can lead to adverse effects both on the mother and the baby due to hyperglycemia. In addition, pregnancy itself can also cause altered blood glucose levels due to hormonal changes and leads to deleterious effects on the complications of diabetes. So management of diabetes requires multidisciplinary approach.

    Tuberculosis (TB) is an infectious disease mainly caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis. TB is an acid-fast staining rod that gets transmitted through aerosolized droplets. Even though TB cases in the United States are decreasing, it is still prevalent in the developing world, especially in travelers from countries with endemic TB. TB is primarily a lung infection because of its aerosol transmission. It can become a systemic infection and last in the body for long periods of time. When the infection becomes systemic, it gets labeled as miliary TB because of the lymphohematogenous and disseminated spread. In this case report, we present an exceedingly rare case of a young patient with latent miliary TB who presents to the hospital with gastrointestinal complaints, ultimately having a small bowel perforation and a complicated hospital course which followed. Of note, according to the CDC, US cases of TB are about 2.7% per 100,000, of which military tuberculosis is a rare complication as low as <2% (6). Secondarily, systolic blood pressure can range from as low as 7% up to 30% occurrence based on the etiology, and patient presentation. Combining both factors can elucidate how rare it is for SBP and disseminated TB to occur individually, let alone simultaneously.

    Background: Transformational Leadership TL is a type of Leadership style is focusing on understanding behaviors, feelings, personal attitudes of individuals "employees" toward their jobs, leaders, and the organization. The most relevant studies that mentioned the Transformational Leadership (T.L.) style applied to support the relationship between leaders and employees in the decision-making process and participation in other processes. The actual turnover is a serious problem because financial and manpower wastes follow it. K.A.A.H. Physicians' Turnover and Job Performance are the dependent variables, and Transformational Leadership is an independent variable in this paper. Methods: The online Questionnaire used in the research is Google Forms. Microsoft Excel is used to organize the responses and S.P.S.S. statistical package program to generate regression statistics and descriptive statistics. The target sample size is 175 participants, according to Select Statistics Calculator. The scale used is the Likert scale which is 5 items; 1 (strongly disagree) to 5 (strongly agree). Results: The results show the effectiveness of applying T.L. to minimize turnover and positively increase employee's job performance. In the 1st dependent variable, most responses are reflected by the physicians "totally disagree" with negative Turnover intentions while two measures are reflected as "neutral." In contrast, a short number of them preferred to answer from "totally disagree" to "agree." Lastly, in the 2nd dependent, four measures out of five are gained "totally agree." These measures are positively describing the feelings of the participants regarding their Job Performance. Discussion and Conclusion: The research is designed as a descriptive case study. This type of design concerns understanding the specific targeted case towards determined variables. The highest percentage of each question's responses is determined by the highest numbers of physicians who agreed, disagreed, or neutral. In addition, the highest numbers of the participants are "totally agree" and "agree" with the measures of the independent variable Transformational Leadership. In contrast, most numbers of the participants are "Totally disagree," "disagree," and "neutral," with the measures of the dependent variable turnover.

    Tattoos add a perceived aesthetic value to the body of the wearer. In instances where tattoos are worn – by choice – to enhance the outer appearance of the wearer, they are a vivid expression of artistic freedom, individualism and even a mark of belonging. For the same reasons that their appearance becomes conspicuous, tattoo wearers are vulnerable to receive negative first impressions. Tattoos are broadly divided into three types: those that are of tribal origins, those that are linked with criminal communities, and those that are forcefully given to mark prisoners or given as punishment. A well-known example of tribal tattoo are the ones worn by Borneo Ibans. This paper will explain the importance of semiotics studies by looking at the cultural value of a particular tribal tattoo. The bunga terung is an Iban tattoo that a man will get when he goes for bejalai, a journey comparable to a walkabout. The theory of semiotics and representation by Charles Sanders Peirce will cover the knowledge process towards understanding the bunga terung. This research will enable us to differentiate between a tattoo that represents a particular indigenous community and a tattoo that represents a criminal one.

    Background: The practice of ear and nose piercing is an age long cultural practice mainly for cosmetic and religious reasons and female gender are mostly involved. Culturally, parents especially mothers do it for their children until about few decades ago when the trend seems to be changing from what was a mere cultural practice among the primitives now becoming a vogue among young people and unusually males and celebrities getting more involved as well. The attendant complications associated with this practice may be very devastating if dire caution is not put into place hence the reason for this study seeking to assess the trends, prevalence, and complications of ear and nose piercing among undergraduate students of AfeBabalola University, a University in the South-West Nigeria. Methodology: The study employed a descriptive cross sectional design, using multistage sampling technique. A self-administered structured questionnaire was used to collect data from 391undergraduate students of AfeBabaloa University based on the required sample size. Data was analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics with significance set at P<0.05. Result: Results revealed majority of the respondents were between 20-25 years. The prevalence of Ear and Nose piercing was 58%. Majority of respondents pierced their earlobe, with 91.3% having 3 or more piercings. Respondents reported complications such as bleeding (57.2%), infections (66.4%) and severe pain (66.4%) on the pierced site. Only few had piercing done by a professional, as most of the respondents did the piercing themselves in unsterile environment. The prevalence of Ear and Nose piercing is high among undergraduate students of Abuad. Conclusion: The prevalence of ear and nose piercing among undergraduates is very high and by inference among young people with imminent risks. There is therefore urgent need to embark on aggressive health education campaign in schools from nursery to university level and the general populace to grave complications of this new trend in this practice. All the stake holders most especially the ndividual, parents, professional body piercers and the government to work together to ensure safety standard in the shops where these practices are done. The government through the health sector must all be readily available to handle complications of this practice whenever they arise.

    The research mainly aims to prove the stress level amongst higher education teachers during online teaching system and the impact of the crisis on individual teachers and identify common issues while taking the online classes and methodologies to adopt in the new normal and the major coping up strategies’ as well, through the study its analysed that so that we can better understand the challenges that teachers are facing and consider how these may be addressed during the crisis and beyond levels. Stress Management The word ‘stress’ is used in physics to refer to the interaction between a force and the resistance to counter that force, and it was Hans Selye who first incorporated this term into the medical lexicon to describe the “nonspecific response of the body to any demand”. Stress means “pressure or tension” exerted on a material object. Stress is a fact of everyday life. When people reach out for help, they are often dealing with circumstances, situations, and stressors in their lives that leave them feeling emotionally and physically overwhelmed. Many people feel that they have very little resources or skills to deal with the high levels of stress they are experiencing. Stress management involves the usage of different techniques along with psychotherapies to control the different levels of stress, mainly chronic stress so as to improve the daily working of an individual and the quality of life. Online education system “Online learning” refers to instructional environments supported by the Internet. Online learning comprises a wide variety of programs that use the Internet within and beyond school walls to provide access to instructional materials as well as facilitate interaction among teachers and students. Online learning can be fully online or blended with face-to-face interactions. Online education also can be defined as an approach to teaching and learning that utilizes internet technologies to communicate and collaborate in an educational context. The physical classroom learning nowadays is no longer applicable for the current younger generations (Gen Y). Internet and distance learning which is generally known as online education plays a vital role in the country's education system. It is undeniable that online education provides ample of benefits to young learners. Fully online learning is a form of distance education in which all instruction and assessments are carried out using online, Internet-based delivery (Picciano and Seaman 2009; U.S. Department of Education 2007).

    Introduction: To lower the infection rate of SARS-CoV-2, public gatherings are discouraged by the personnel of scientific communities and so educational institutions are closed for being the meeting place of so many students. To continue the education, most of the countries took the decision of teaching-learning through online. But all the countries could not be benefitted completely because of lacking computer knowledge and technical issues. Bangladesh is among them and this study was conducted in the Chattogram region of the country. Materials and method: Data was collected from 300 students and 100 hundred teachers of different educational institutions ranging from primary schools to universities and then analyzed on Excel platform. Results and Discussion: The findings present how attitude, motivation, self-efficacy, and use of technology play a significant role in giving and receiving lessons for academic performance of students and teachers. Also, participants preferred face-to-face learning over online learning. Conclusion: In spite of having many challenges, there is no option to continue education during pandemic except e-learning. So, major challenges should be met and positive attitudes must be grown.

    The principles of spatial planning such as integration, sustainability, democracy through legal certainty and justice are a necessity given the development of the global situation and conditions. The spatial planning regulation should accommodate such principles, but in the existing statutory regulations in spatial planning management it creates problems, namely overlapping and disharmony among the statutory regulations governing spatial planning. The problem raised in this article is what kind of regulatory reconstruction can accelerate spatial planning regulations so that they can provide certainty and justice for society. The research method used is descriptive normative. The results of this study indicate that the regulatory construction that is formed at least provides a solution in spatial planning that does not cause complexity with overlapping and disharmony regulations, so that the desired regulatory construction encourages acceleration of spatial planning regulations that provide justice for society, and legal certainty in spatial planning.

    This research paper provides recommendations, based on a reflective analysis, concerning the prescription of safe, effective, and appropriate fascia-focused physical activity, and manual therapy interventions, for patients recovering from COVID-19. In particular this review and emerging recommendations are specific to those who are failing to achieve a full recovery and thus experiencing Long-COVID symptoms leading to a possible National health crisis. The progression of the airborne RNA virus, identified as severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) or COVID-19, is ongoing, and the numbers of Long-COVID suffers are increasing. It is now almost two years since the World Health Organisation (WHO) announced that the spread of this airborne virus had reached pandemic proportions. It is hoped this research paper will provide important information concerning the longer-term effects of COVID-19 and its numerous variants Alpha, Delta, Delta plus (K417N spike protein mutation), Lambda and others. Appropriate guidelines for safe physical activity and touch therapies for hospitalised and non-hospitalised long-COVID patients will be provided. There is emerging detail concerning long-termpost-viral effects showing them to be similarly reflective of other common syndrome sequelae such as Fibromyalgia, Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, Myofascial Trigger Points, and Chronic fatigue. This information is proving to be useful in offering much-needed recommendations for the safe prescription of physical activities and manual therapy in supporting patient's return to pain-free movement and improved quality of life. While high-quality research is lacking on this topic, according to reliable scientific sources, long-COVID syndrome, or Long-COVID, is an emerging and growing problem worldwide. Several reports confirm that a significant number of people are failing to achieve full recovery following infection. Available research figures show patients who did not require hospitalization when having COVID-19 and who had no underlying medical condition including children, healthy fit individuals, particularly women, and 'under 40' pre-menopausal women are particularly vulnerable to Long-COVID. This reflective analysis provides recommendations concerning informed, appropriate fascia-focused therapeutic physical activity and touch-therapy therapeutic interventions for qualified therapists working with hospitalised or non-hospitalised Long-COVID patients. Based on current data, it seems prudent to consider SARS-CoV-2, COVID-19 as a long-term illness. Post-Covid patients require professionally trained personal to provide the necessary clinical support and valuable functional life change advice. Following medical approval, if required, qualified therapist should carry out a complete battery of tests to rule out other underlying causes before providing any therapeutic interventions.

    Background: A core build-up is a restoration placed in a badly broken down tooth to restore the coronal portion. This facilitates restoration of the broken down tooth by means of extra-coronal restoration. Compressive and flexural strength of core materials is thought to be important because core usually replaces the large bulk of the tooth structure and must resist multidirectional forces. In this study, compressive and flexural strength of a newly introduced core material was determined and compared with conventional core materials. The purpose of the study was to evaluate and compare the compressive and flexural strength of Zirconia modified Glass Ionomer used as a core build-up material with other conventional materials. Methodology: Cylindrical specimens measuring 6mm in height and 4mm in diameter were prepared using machined aluminium mold. Ten specimens were prepared in each group. (Amalgam, Resin modified GIC, Light cured composite, Zirconia modified Glass Ionomer). Compressive strength was determined using a universal testing machine. The maximum load applied to fracture the specimen was recorded and compressive strength was calculated in Mega Pascal. Results: The mean compressive strength and flexural strength was significantly higher (p <0.05)in Glass reinforced composite group as compared to Zirconia modified Glass Ionomer, DPI alloy and Vitrimer, but no statistically significant difference was observed between Zirconia modified Glass Ionomer vs DPI alloy, Zirconia modified Glass Ionomer vs Vitrimer, DPI alloy vs Vitrimer. Conclusion: Within the limitations of this study, Glass reinforced composite had higher strength compared to the other three core build- up materials.

    The oral cavity is one of the predominant and prevalent sites of development of potential malignancies, since it comes into direct contact with many carcinogens. Despite monitoring the original tumour site following an advanced surgical and non-surgical therapy, the overall mortality rate remains unchanged probably due to the recurrence of the tumour either locally or at a remote site. Field Cancerization also called field defect or field effect is a well-known process of transformation of an existing precancerous lesion into a malignancy. This definition is often used to describe the development of abnormal tissues around a tumorigenic area, resulting into an oral multifocal cancer in individual sites, which later coalesce and create atypical areas, even after complete surgical removal of the tumour. Early detection and monitoring of the field may have profound implications for Cancer Prevention.

    The development of male infertility is increasing rapidly worldwide with numerous causative agents and idiopathic causes. Infertility conundrum coincides with the epidemic of abnormal body weight which holds sway to countless pathological conditions. This study was therefore designed to evaluate the relationship between low body mass index (BMI), sperm counts and seminal electrolyte concentrations in young adults. A total of one hundred (100) students of the Niger Delta University constituted the study subjects. The age bracket was pegged between 18-35 years. The study was stratified into two categories; normal BMI (20-25) and underweight (< 19). The BMI, electrolytes and sperm concentrations were analyzed using WHO approved standards and procedures. Data generated from the mathematical and empirical analysis were analysed using student t-test and Pearson correlation obtained using SPPS version 18-20 packages. The result showed a significant decrease (p<0.05) in seminal sodium and bicarbonate in the underweight when compared to normal BMI, whereas seminal potassium was on the contrary. Correlation between BMI and sperm count revealed non-significant relationship with Pearson coefficient (r) = - 0.077; p – value = 0.778. In conclusion, the distorted electrolytes observed in the study are a plausible predisposition of underweight to infertility.

    Background: Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a very common disease in the Western world and in Italy it is estimated that there are over one hundred thousand of patients, like HIV infection. In recent years, progress has been made with regard to lines of treatment and new drugs have been approved and already available and have changed the history of the disease making it favorable in most cases. Methods: the search for the articles to be included was conducted through the use of databases such as pubmed, scopus, researchgate, google scholar, by typing in keywords such as "multiple sclerosis therapies" the names of the new drugs and integrating with literature data. Results: The purpose of this article is to expose the characteristics of the most recent approved drugs, including oral ones, evaluating, based on clinical studies, their pharmacodynamic characteristics and adverse reactions, and finally to expose some of the compounds undergoing approval or innovative evaluation that in the coming months or years they may be commercially available. Conclusions: Disease-modifying therapies work both on the control of the underlying pathological process, limiting immune-mediated inflammation, and partly on the mechanism of neurodegeneration by slowing the progression. These drugs have shown remarkable results in decreasing the attack rate. However, there are still no definitive therapies, even if there are neuroprotective and remyelinating therapies in experimentation that seem to give very good results.

    This case report describes a case of acute myocarditis post-vaccination. Patient who received the Covid 19 vaccine. There is evidence in the literature linking vaccines to different auto-immune manifestations. Of late, autoimmune manifestations that appear to be caused by an external adjuvant have been grouped into a complex syndrome referred to as autoimmune/inflammatory syndrome induced by adjuvants (ASIA). He presented to hospital with chest pain, fever and weakness after 4 days from vaccination. Laboratory investigations showed elevated creatine kinase and troponin-I, and extensive cardiac investigations yielded a diagnosis of myocarditis. Adjuvants are elements that induce an inflammatory response. In the case of vaccines, adjuvants increase the antigen-specific immune response, to ultimately improve vaccine immunogenicity. The incidence of myocarditis post vaccination is rare Given the benefits of the vaccine and the rarity of this complication, we do not discourage its routine usage when clinically indicated. However, ongoing surveillance is required to evaluate the occurrence of rare adverse events.

    Strictness of the Ministry of Environment, Forest & Climate Change (MoEFCC) against the non-compliance of the Emission norms Notified by MoEFCC in 2016 for Cement Industries was the major challenge for Cement Industries to achieve the emission norms. Nitrogen Oxides (NOx) emission reduction was the major challenge for Cement Industry therefore, some of the Cement Industries have installed global approved NOx reduction technology called as Selective Non Catalytic Reduction (SNCR). After installation of SNCR system in Cement Industries NOx emission through process stacks get reduced but the Ammonia (NH3) gas has increased in process stacks because NH3 gas is injecting in Pre-calciner of the cement Kiln at Temperature range between 870 to 1090o Celcies and converting it into Nitrogen gas ((Production of Ammonium Nitrate, 2000) but some quantity of Ammonia approx 2 to 10 ppm (State and Territorial Air Pollution, 1994) get released from process stacks. Apart from this, some quantity of Ammonia gas also releasing during loading and unloading of Ammonia through tankers.

    Two dietary patterns that have been shown to improve heart health include the Mediterranean Diet and Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension. Another common dietary method based on periodic fasting intervals is IF. Alternative diets include alternate-day fasting and time-restricted eating. Despite the lack of large, randomised clinical trials evaluating the link between IF and cardiovascular outcomes, human research suggests that this diet may lower cardiovascular disease risk by improving weight management, hypertension, dyslipidaemia, and diabetes. IF may enhance your health in a variety of ways, including reduced oxidative stress, improved circadian rhythm, and ketogenesis. This review investigating the current data about the possible cardiovascular benefits of intermittent fasting and makes areas for further research.

    Heparin induced thrombocytopenia and thrombosis is associated after several days of ongoing heparin treatment. It is an immune-mediated response which leads to life-threatening thrombosis. Thrombocytopenia is caused by presence of antibodies which activate the heparin and bind to platelet factor 4(PF4). HIT is associated with thromboembolic complications in both arteries and venous circulation. Complications such as pulmonary embolism, myocardial infraction, and death due to thrombotic occlusion in heart, lungs and brain. The main diagnostic criteria are to examine the thrombocytopenia during heparin treatment. HITTS mostly occur after 1-2 weeks after the HIT. A complete watch on platelet and laboratory parameters is essential. The treatment options for HITTS are low molecular weight heparin (LMWHs) and antiplatelet agent are provided. The main consequence would be only keeping eye at patient during thrombocytopenia as it leads to thrombosis and providing effective treatment.

    Background: People with chronic kidney disease (CKD) undergoing hemodialysis may have symptoms of anxiety and depression that may interfere with adherence to medication treatment. Objectives: to evaluate adherence to medication use and its association with anxiety and depressive symptoms, as well as sociodemographic and clinical characteristics in people with CKD undergoing hemodialysis. Methods: Cross-sectional study, carried out in a hemodialysis center in a city in southwestern Goiás, Goiás, Brazil, involving 105 people with chronic kidney disease undergoing hemodialysis. The ethical aspects were met and data were collected during the months of December 2017 to January 2019, through interviews. For the outcome variables, the Morisky-Green Test and the HAD scale were used for anxiety and depression. Results: The overall prevalence of people adhering to the treatment was 14.3% (95%CI: 7.3-22.9%), with 70.5% having medium and low adherence. Regarding anxiety, the prevalence was 34.3% (95% CI: 25.7 – 42.9), while depression was 35.2% (95% CI: 26.7 – 44.3). There was an association between adherence to drug treatment and poor self-rated health (p=0.001) and anxiety (p=0.039); and marginal significance for depression (p=0.054). There was a weak negative correlation between medication adherence and anxiety (r= -0.275; p=0.005). Gender (p=0.014), self-rated health (p=0.016), and DM (p=0.020) were independently associated with depression. Conclusions: The need for multidimensional care for people on hemodialysis during care is reported, highlighting the low adherence to drug treatment and the presence of anxiety and depression, seeking to improve the quality of life of these people.

    In the present research, an attempt was made to study an economics analysis on marketing of maize in serchhip district, Mizoram. The present study was conducted in North Eastern state of Mizoram during year 2020-2021. Primary market (Chawhmeh bazaar) has been selected purposively according to the association of the producers with the market. There are only two channel exist for the marketing of maize and these are: Producer - consumer and Producer-wholesaler-retailer-consumer. The findings from the study shows that total marketing cost was higher in channel II Rs 122, followed by channel I Rs 47 respectively. The total marketing margins was Rs 225 for channel II and the price spread for channel I was Rs 47 and for channel II Rs 347. The study shows that apart from primary market (Chawhmeh bazaar) most of the produce were bought by District agricultural office, serchhip which act as the wholesaler and it was later bought by the animal husbandry department which act as the retailer. Constraints in marketing was mainly due to lack of storage facilities, high transportation charges, and frequent price fluctuation.

    Spirulina, a dietary supplement par excellence, is an algae very rich in proteins, vitamins and mineral elements. The objective of this synthesis is to report on the state of knowledge on the production, composition, processing and use of spirulina. This work was carried out from a bibliographic study. Thus, the results of studies have shown that all stages of spirulina production require compliance with a number of parameters. These include the choice of land and type of basin, culture medium, agitation system, maintenance and rigorous monitoring of crops. Spirulina is an algae which has a thermophilic character and a significant need for light, this particularity of spirulina limits its distribution area to an intertropical band located approximately between 35 ° North latitude and 35 ° South latitude. The chemical composition of spirulina gives it a wide potential for use, especially in human and animal food, in aquaculture, cosmetics, pharmacology, etc. Valuation trials were also tested.

    According to molecular flexibility, new ethylspacer containing benzoates RO-C6H4-COO-CH2-CH2-O-C6H4-O-CH2-C6H5 were synthesized. As ethylspacer provides good flexibility, this series shows polymorphism. We are introducing an easy one-pot reaction for the esterification of an aliphatic alcohol with the help of isobutyl chloroformate, reaction time and yield as well as liquid crystalline properties of synthesized compounds were studied. As compared to the reported series,the current series is polymesomorphic in nature with a lower transition temperature. Introducing a spacer between two rigid cores enhance the mesomorphic behavior to show Ntb mesophase. The setexture and transition temperatures were carried out in temperature controlling polarizing optical microscope. All homologues were confirmed by 1H NMR, Mass spectrometry and IR spectroscopic technique.

    In Togo, the recurrence of pockets of drought during the rainy season and soil degradation pose serious threats to agriculture. Under these conditions, cotton production is strongly influenced, and the quality of the harvested fiber is altered. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the contribution of two types of composts, made with crop residues, on cotton yield and on some technological characteristics of the fiber in conditions of lack of water. The study was carried out in a greenhouse, in a 10 L vegetation pot. The water deficit is induced at the flowering stage of the plant, for 30 days, and consisted of a reduction in irrigation from 70 % to 30 % of the useful water reserve (UWR). The results showed that the water deficit induced a significant decrease in productivity (p = 0.001) in cotton, on the other hand the difference was not significant for the fiber yield at ginning (p = 0.663) and seed index (p = 0.243). The impact of the water deficit on productivity is halved with the use of compost, with rates of change of -26.12 % and -28.78 %, against -47.75 % in the absence of fertilization. Whatever the water regime, the contribution of composts can significantly improve the micronaire index (p = 0.023), the maturity of the fiber (p = 0.019), the length of the fiber (p = 0.003), fiber uniformity (p = 0.006) and tenacity (p = 0.008). Thus, compost appears to be a solution both to the problem of soil infertility and to strengthening the resistance of crops to drought.
