Water quality and biology of hot springs waters of Mahapelassa, Sri Lanka
B.M.M. Rajapaksha , R. A. Maithreepala, H.B. Asanthi

Abstract: One of the major hot springs areas in Sri Lanka is located in Mahapalassa, Hambanthota district. This study was designedas a preliminary study of the biological and physico-chemical properties of hot water wells. Two hot springs (A and B) and one normal well (C) located within 300 m distance were selected. Water samples were collected from the surface, middle and bottom layers of the wells biweekly during August to October 2013 and the water was filtered using 30 µm mesh from the vertical column of bottom to surface for analyzing the biology.

The Effect of Policy Implementation, Leadership, Human Resource Quality, and Community Participation on Family Planning Program Effectiveness in City of Makassar
Anwar Muhammadiah, Yossy Adiwisastra, Tjahja Supriatna, Musa Hubeis

Abstract: Indonesian population is on the poor state at this moment. Population problem in City of Makassar caused by Family Planning Program (Program Keluarga Berencana – KB) in post local autonomy that tend to be less effective. In that relation, this research aims to study on how far is the partial and together effect of policy implementation, leadership, Human Resources (Sumber Daya Manusia – SDM) quality) and community participation on KB Program effectiveness in City of Makassar. Research method used is explanatory method, quantitative research type with descriptive analytic, with total population of 1566, total sample of 415 and also determination coefficient and linear regression analysis method.

Phenotypical Morphometry Variation of Aedes Aegyti in Manado
Wulan PJ Kaunang, Jantje Pelealu, Max Tulung, Christin Salaki

Abstract: Aedes aegypti (Linne, 1762) is the main vector of arboviruses, namely yellow fever, dengue and Chikungnya. In North Sulawesi it has found variation in morphology, ecology, behavior and vector competence. Vector control is still the best way to prevent dengue fever. Understanding the morphological characteristics that become characters in the phenotypic mosquito is very important in the efforts of controlling and classification. This study aims to find morphological variation of Aedes aegypti in the city of Manado. This research applies descriptive research techniques with direct experiments in the laboratory. The morphologic character of mosquito samples from selected locations were then measured by using a stereomicroscope KH8700 completed with cameras, measurement software of morphological characters and statistical programs. The morphometry data were then analyzed with multivariate and factor analysis by using IBM SPSS 20. The results showed that of the twelve morphological characters were analyzed, it was found that Aedes spp from 4 areas in the city of Manado has undergone phenotypical characters variations (morphology), characterized by the formation of five clusters or groups based on the degree of similarity in morphometry. There are three groupings of morphological characters which are variance factor of 1: (5.941 / 12) x 100% = 49.508%, variance factor of 2: 1.798 / 12) x 100% = 14.98%, and variance 3 factors: (1,184 / 12 x 100% = 9.86%.

No-reference blur evaluation method for images based on edge analysis and segmentation in spatial domain using Canny Edge Detector
Hajera Siddiqa, Nusrat Ferdous, Z. M. Parvez Sazzad

Abstract: In this research, a no-reference blur evaluation method has been developed for images based on edge analysis and segmentation in spatial domain. Blur mainly smoothes the image signal which causes the reduction of edge points. This edge information of an image can be estimated using canny edge detector. The perceptual blur of any image are strongly dependent on local features, such as plane and non-plane areas. Therefore, this local feature based edge detection is evaluated in this method. Subjective experiment results are used to verify this method. The outcomes indicate that the proposed method can efficiently predict blur of images.

Estimation of Serum Electrolytes in non Insulin Dependent (type 2) Diabetic
Md. Bayejid Hosen, Md. Ashikur Rahman Buiyan, Md. Shamimul Hasan, Md. Mahmudul Hassan, Md. Mesbah Uddin

Abstract: Diabetes is a group of disorders characterized by high glucose levels. The incidence of diabetes is increasing rapidly with interference in electrolytes sodium (Na+), potassium (K+) and chloride (Cl-). The aim of the study was to estimate the electrolytes disturbance in non insulin dependent Diabetes Mellitus. Total of 102 subjects were included in the study, out of which two groups were formed; 52 diabetes mellitus and 50 healthy volunteer as controls. Biochemical analysis for Na+, K+, Cl- was performed by the Biolyte 2000 automatic electrolyte analyzer. The random glucose levels were estimated by direct enzymatic method using Randox kit. Student t-test was done to find out the difference between the two paired groups and Pearson's correlation was calculated to know the correlations between electrolytes and random glucose levels. In diabetes mellitus serum Na+ and Cl- levels were observed significantly increased (p<0.001, respectively) while K+ showed no significant (p>0.05) alterations. There was no significant correlation found between random glucose levels and electrolytes in this study. The study demonstrated significant association of Na+ and Cl- with type 2 diabetes mellitus. So, electrolytes should be measured during the treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus.

An approach towards sustainable city environment: Critical analysis of municipal solid waste management of Pabna municipality of Bangladesh from the perspective of resource recovery and environmental
A H M Monzurul Mamun

Abstract: This study explores the municipal solid waste management of an underdeveloped municipality named Pabna of Bangladesh. Waste generation is increasing with its population and the municipal authority is facing enormous challenges in managing the waste on this low lying piece of land highly vulnerable to seasonal flooding. Leachate contamination and greenhouse gas emission are the prominent environmental concerns. The study suggests manual organic composting as a remedy. Reduction potential of methane (CH4) emission is identified by calculation and evaluation of dumping site CH4 emission. Possible environmental, social and economic benefits including landfill area requirement reduction are also identified.
