  • Detection and Quantification of Eurycomanone Levels in Tongkat Ali Herbal

    • Abstract: Tongkat Ali is most famous for its aphrodisiac property and has gained reputation worldwide. Due to this, Tongkat Ali products are in demand and can be obtained in various forms. The quality of these products is not often authenticated. As Malaysia is one of the major producing countries of Tongkat Ali products, this study adapted a method which is used to determine the quality of Tongkat Ali products in the market. The quality of those products is based on the level of eurycomanone, the major compound in Tongkat Ali and the level should be around 0.8-1.5 w/v (%). A total of 41 products were obtained internationally and from Malaysia, with different pharmaceutical dosage, single or combined formulation. Those products were analyzed for eurycomanone content using HPLC, C18 column with acetonitrile and water as the mobile phase. The result indicated that 24 of the products contained eurycomanone. Eleven out of the 24 products complied (0.84-8.48% w/v) with the criteria set by Malaysian Standard and 9 of the products even have the eurycomanone level above (1.6-8.48% w/v) the set criteria. It was observed no eurycomanone was detected in some products even though the products have been registered with Malaysian herbal regulatory body, National Pharmaceutical Control Bureau (NPCB). In conclusion, this study suggests that the eurycomanone level should be utilized as a mandatory regulatory parameter for Tongkat Ali herbal preparation in the market besides the current parameters; microbial load and heavy metal contents alone.

  • Factors Affecting Functional Changes of Rural Settlements in Southwestern
           of Tehran in the Post-Islamic Revolution in Iran

    • Abstract: Tehran as a metropolitan area and as an economic, social and political area has multiple relationships with its surrounding villages and towns at national and regional levels. Functional changes in the rural areas under the influence of Tehran are among important changes that have occurred in the years after the Islamic revolution in Iran. Accordingly, people living in the villages located at the South West of Tehran began to migrate to Tehran during the last thirty years as a result of changing the political system of the country, the lack of suitable planning, the rage of an eight years war between Iraq and Iran and the lack of resources in most parts of the country, especially in rural areas. Consequently, the villages in the South West of Tehran have undergone radical functional changes. This study examines the functional changes of the rural settlements over 1978-2014. To this end, a descriptive-analytical research design was used. The sample under study consisted of 374 heads of households in the sample villages selected using cluster sampling. The results indicated that villages in the Southwest of Tehran during the revolution years were involved mostly in primary functions such as agriculture, animal husbandry and horticulture while the industry and services in rural areas were at the lowest level. However, the changes made in socioeconomic structure of the whole country plus the developments made in the last few decades have not been aligned with the environmental capabilities. The presence of industries, factories and workshops in agricultural lands surrounding villages, low prices of agricultural lands and the expansion of communication networks have extended various functions including industrial and service functions.

  • Testing Conceptual Relationship Between Constructs of Psychological
           Contract Breach and Organizational Identification through Perceived
           Organizational Membership

    • Abstract: This study examines the relationship between psychological contract breach and organizational identification, which include a group-level transformational and transactional leadership and routine justice in the hypothesized model. Result shows psychological contract breach to mediate the impact of transformational and transactional leadership is on organizational identification. Results further provided support for moderated mediation and showed that the indirect effects of transformational and transactional leadership on identification through psychological contract breach were stronger for employees with a low connection self-schema. This research has presented the importance of psychological contract breach for employees’ identification with their organization, as well as the key role of leadership and individual differences for understanding this relationship. Organizations that wish to further strong relational ties with their employees need, therefore, to take those variables seriously into account in their implementation of management practices. Trust is an important investigative variable that can offer additional perceptions on the employee-organization relationship and perceived organizational membership, it to be a mediator between breach and organizational identification. Finally, other individual variables could be included in the model as additional descriptive constructs.

  • A Survey and Comparative Analysis of Multiply-Accumulate (MAC) Block for
           Digital Signal Processing Application on ASIC and FPGA

    • Abstract: In the field of semiconductor design industry which, in the contemporary times, has observed exceptional, explosive and exhilarating growth in the development of portable communication devices like mobile phones, IPADS and note books. These real time processing systems perform high computational operations, mainly in the form of butterfly and Multiply Accumulate (MAC). However, these systems are expected to consume high power and are characterized by high data throughput rate. Of the two, MAC is a major component used in portable applications and communication sectors like Wireless Code Division Multiple Access (WCDMA), base station receivers, Successive Interference Canceller (SIC), Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) based wireless devices, channel estimators and carrier synchronizers. In general the MAC block resides in the critical path, which governs the complete power and speed of the system. The efficient utilization of MAC in terms of speed and power depends upon the type of architecture, logic technology style, the fundamental block and primitive cell realization. This study vividly presents the bird eye view on the hitherto work concerning the existing MAC unit in terms of its power performance factors, which helps the future researcher for opting suitable MAC block which can be used in Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) and Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC) for signal processing applications. The comparative analysis is based on architecture/size, number of clock cycles, Partial Product Reduction Tree (PPRT), functional module, power saving method, logic technology, fabrication process and speed-voltage performance.

  • Application of Gypsum and Fly Ash as Additives in Stabilization of
           Tropical Peat Soil

    • Abstract: The demand for land in conjunction to infrastructure development is become crucial and expensive. In the near future, a problematic soil such as peat is becoming a final alternative. In crucial cases, peat land cannot be avoided and has been hosted for engineering structures (e.g., road, highway, railway and bridge). Peat soil is well established of its downgraded characteristics, highly compressibility and low in shear strength. This study aimed to investigate effect of fly ash and gypsum on the mechanical properties of peat soil. Fly Ash (FA) is a by-product material that is generated from the burning of coal in thermal power plants. In this study, gypsum was prepared chemically in the laboratory to simulate residue from Neutralization Underflow Process (NUF). For the first batch of samples, the peat samples were initially treated with Synthetic Gypsum (SG) in the ranges between 0 and 20% of sample dried weight (SG treated soil). In a second batch, the peat samples were prepared with 10% FA and then mixed thoroughly with different amounts of SG contents (0, 5, 10 and 20%) (10FA-SG treated soil). The results showed that soil treated with mixture of 10% FA and SG indicated lower liquid limit values than the SG treated soil. In compaction tests, the maximum dry density of both increased in both SG treated soil and FA-SG treated soil. The permeability of SG treated soil increased with the increases in SG contents. Similarly, occurred to permeability of FA-SG treated soil however, its values are lower than the soil treated without FA. Shear strength of SG treated showed decreased with increasing amount of SG content. In contrast, the FA-SG treated soil exhibited higher strength if compared to that of SG treated soil. The result suggested that the application of FA and SG mixture is more effective in stabilization in mechanical strength and densification of peat soil than the use of SG only.

  • Perspective of Consumers Network Positions on Information Searching
           Behaviour of Experts and Novices

    • Abstract: Results from two studies depending on consumers’ network positions (outer or central), experts and novices behave when searching information about their networks or commodity’s related to those networks. Experts in central network positions (vs. outer) search for more network-related information, while novices in the same positions search for more commodity-related information. In comparison, experts in outer network positions (vs. central) search for more commodity-related information, while outer novices search for more network-related information. These findings are useful for companies to better access to their brand communities. Since, central experts and outer novices search for network-related information, marketers should facilitate ways to improve their receptivity to this type of information. Similarly, since outer experts and central novices search for commodity-related information. Marketers should devise methods to deliver commodity-specific information to these consumers. Therefore, marketers should consider both consumer’s level of expertise and their network positions to better predict consumer’s information searching behaviors. Regarding to the importance of social networks in consumer decision making, this research indicates the effect and importance of consumer's network position on information searching for behavior of experts and novices.

  • Threat Modeling Approaches for Securing Cloud Computin

    • Abstract: The cloud computing delivers services of processing data by using parallel and high computational processors virtually and remotely. This is very useful and beneficial to enterprises that have limitations in terms of processing resources, data storages and man power. However, one of the main challenge in cloud computing is data security. Supposed each user has an access to the domain based on the privilege given by the server. However, an attacker always has the opportunity to bypass the privilege by exploring and exploiting every vulnerability and threat found in the cloud computing environment. A systematic approach to identify vulnerabilities and threats is thus very important to ensure only authorized party is allowed to access the data. In this study, several approaches of vulnerability and threat modeling are reviewed and found that none of them is suitable for the cloud computing environment. Therefore, authors presented a dynamic model of identifying vulnerabilities and threats in the cloud computing environment. The proposed model enables the organization to systematically identify vulnerability and threats and analyze the security risk when they use cloud computing services.

  • Correlation of Elevated Serum Serotonin Levels with Regular Aerobic
           Exercise is Associated with Alterations in Monocyte Count and Hemoglobin
           Levels during Winter Season

    • Abstract: Central fatigue pheromone is not satisfactory to explain altered serum serotonin sSER. Thus the aim of this study is to detect some potential peripheral predictors of altered sSER at rest on the day without any exercise during winter season. One hundred and one university male students aged (21.5±1.5) year’s. Participants were divided into two groups: The NES (non exercising) and RES (regular aerobic exercising) subject groups. BMI was calculated for all subjects. Fasting blood samples were collected and tested for blood glucose, blood indices, lipid profile, serum serotonin, leptin vitamin B12, folic acid and salivary stress hormones (cortisol and DHEA). T test showed an elevation in serum serotonin levels of RES group with significant mean difference (p = 0.031) between the study groups RES and NES. Total WBC count and obesity values for mean of BMI, weight and leptin were significantly higher in NES group. Granulocytes count (R2 = 0.114), hemoglobin levels (R2 = 0.193), WBC count (R2 = 0.289), LDL levels (R2 = 0.362) and serum leptin levels (R2 = 0.423) were selected by stepwise regression analysis as predictive variables of regular aerobic exercise for serum serotonin. These predictors together explained 42% of the variance in serum serotonin. In NES potential predictors were; monocyte count (R2 = 0.102) and platelets count (R2 = 0.275). This study indicates that a positive correlation between regular aerobic exercise and serum serotonin levels in winter season is associated with significant changes in monocyte count.

  • Inhibitory Activity of Kaempferia galanga and Hibiscus sabdariffa on the
           Rate of PGH2 Formation

    • Abstract: Cyclooxygenase (COX) or Prostaglandin H2 Synthase (PGHS) is the enzyme that catalyzes the first two steps in the biosynthesis of prostaglandins from the substrate, arachidonic acid. The NSAIDs work by inhibiting both COX isoforms, thus the conversion of arachidonic acid into prostaglandin is disturbed. In our country, kaempferia rhizome (Kaempferia galanga) and roselle calyx (Hibiscus sabdariffa) are used to reduce inflammation by consuming herb tea of these plants. This work studied the inhibitory activity of kaempferia rhizome and roselle calyx on the rate of prostaglandin formation by measuring the absorbance of TMPD (tetramethyl-p-phenyldiamine) oxidized by the extracts, against time. The plants were collected from Manoko plantation in West Java. Phytochemical screening showed that the rhizome contains quinones and terpenes, while the calyx contains polyphenol, flavonoid, quinone and saponin. 100 g of dried rhizome and calyx were separately boiled in 1 L of distilled water for 15 min at 90°C, freeze-dried and dissolved in ethanol 96%. Both Kaempferia galanga and Hibiscus sabdariffa showed inhibition on PGH2 formations. The rate of PGH2 formations on COX-1 was lower than on COX-2. These plants could be further developed for anti-inflammatory drug.
