  • Personas of stem students completing online instructions during the
           covid-19 pandemic

    • Abstract: During the COVID-19 pandemic, instructors quickly transitioned to online teaching to protect themselves and their students. Due to this abrupt transition and lack of communication between instructor and student, instructors had little time to create online teaching methods that successfully adapt and teach the material to best meet the student's needs. Some students did well with online teaching methods, while others seemed to struggle to engage with the material in classes. Without immediate face-to-face feedback from students, we believe that background information such as learning styles, goals, motivations, and expectations of the potential students- will help teachers improve and increase classroom engagement and comprehension. We surveyed and interviewed STEM introductory-level courses online to collect data to create personas in STEM students. Personas are "life-like models whose characteristics are driven by the various goals and motivations of real or potential users." We used persona methodology to survey the diverse learning group in a STEM classroom to create four personas found in STEM classrooms. These personas represent real-life students enrolling in introductory STEM classrooms, allowing instructors to use these personas as a novel tool to design online courses that better engage undergraduate students across STEM disciplines.

  • Aspects of the biology of Phlebotomus argentipes (Diptera: Psychodidae) in
           Kurunegala district

    • Abstract: The sand fly species Phlebotomus argentipes is reported to be the suspected primary vector of leishmaniasis in Sri Lanka transmitting Leishmania donovani which causes visceral leishmaniasis. Thus, studies about some aspects of the reproductive biology of P. argentipes and the performances of immature stages are highly important for adopting control measures. Accordingly, sand flies were captured from the wild using five CDC light traps set in pre-identified places in the Kurunegala district. Gravid and fully engorged females were sorted out and they were directly placed for oviposition in plaster of Paris lined pots. The unengorged ones were allowed to feed on a mouse and placed for oviposition in similar pots. The rate of oviposition, egg hatching, and adult emergence was determined by making daily observations. Moreover, the duration of eggs, each larval instar, pupae, and adult longevity were recorded. According to the observations the life cycle of P. argentipes lasted about 3 to 4 months. The eggs were laid 10-13 days after the blood meal, and they hatched after 12-16 days. Similarly, each second instar, third instar, fourth instar and pupae spent 12-16 days for the emergence. However, the pupal duration was 8-10 days. Furthermore, the rate of oviposition was 15.8 per female and egg hatching and adult emergence was 62.52% and 52.32% respectively. The longevity of the emerged adults was 8-15 days. The information presented on P. argentipes in this study is highly important to initiate and maintain a sand fly colony under laboratory conditions for the implementation of successful control measures.

  • Catalytic reduction of methylene blue by magnetite - silica composite

    • Abstract: Iron oxide nanoparticle-based nanomaterials have well-known catalytic activity for the degradation of organic dyes in the water remediation process. The objective of this research was to synthesize iron oxide silica composite by sol-gel method and assess their applicability in wastewater treatment as a catalyst. Synthesized catalysts were characterized by FT-IR spectroscopy, X-ray diffractometry (XRD), and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Vibration modes in FT-IR spectra show the presence of SiO2 and Fe-O bonds. The formation of Fe3O4 is shown by the XRD patterns. SEM images indicate that iron oxide particles and flakes are distributed in the silica matrix. The effects of catalyst dosage, temperature, the initial concentration of methylene blue (MB), NaBH4 concentration, foreign salts and ionic strength on MB degradation were studied. Maximum degradation of MB (99.89%) was obtained with an initial MB concentration of 20 mg dm-3, catalyst dose of 1.0 g dm-3, NaBH4 concentration of 6.25 mmol dm-3 and at a temperature of 50 °C. Common salts found in industrial wastewater such as NaCl, KCl, CaCl2, and MgCl2 inhibit the degradation of MB, while Na2SO4 enhances the degradation rate. Iron oxide helps in electron relay from BH4- to MB and silica tends to adsorb MB molecules and provide the proximity required for the catalytic reaction. Published on 2022-10-03 00:00:00
       
  • Co-occurrence of microcystin and cylindrospermopsin in hypereutrophic
           Mahakanadarawa and Nachchaduwa reservoirs

    • Abstract: Microcystins (MCs) and cylindrospermopsin (CYN) are the most abundant toxins produced by cyanobacteria in tropical freshwaters. We studied the spatial distribution of MC and CYN in two multipurpose reservoirs, Mahakanadarawa and Nachchaduwa in Anuradhapura district in Sri Lanka in September 2020.  Fourteen water quality parameters, phytoplankton composition, chlorophyll-a, MC and CYN concentrations were analyzed in triplicate in 25 sampling sites from each reservoir. Both reservoirs were at hypereutrophic status.  Microcystis was the dominant cyanobacteria with 0-3.75 x 103 cell/mL in Mahakanadarawa and 1-7 x 103 cell/mL in Nachchaduwa. Besides Microcystis, no other potential MC-producing cyanobacteria were observed. In Mahakanadarawa, MC was detected in the range of 0.11-1.63 µg/L which was above the WHO permissible level (1.0 µg/L) for drinking water. Although comparatively high Microcystis cell density was present in Nachchaduwa, its MC concentration was low (0.06-0.17 µg/L). The CYN concentration in Nachchaduwa was above the WHO permissible level (0.7 µg/L) for drinking water. It was 0.20-1.02 µg/L in Nachchaduwa and 0.03-0.08 µg/L in Mahakanadarawa. We did not observe any potential CYN-producing cyanobacteria in either of the reservoirs. There was no relationship between the spatial distribution pattern of MC and Microcystis cell density in both reservoirs. Although the majority of physico-chemical properties of water indicated suitability for drinking, co-occurrence of high concentrations of MC and CYN indicated their unsuitability for drinking. Hence, this study highlights the necessity for routing detection of cyanotoxins in both reservoirs. Further, our findings alarm potential health risks for the local community that relies on Mahakanadarawa and Nachchaduwa reservoirs for drinking, irrigation and fisheries.

  • Detection of Clostridium perfringens and associated preventive measures to
           appraise the safe meat curry consumption in the Colombo city

    • Abstract: Sri Lanka is a fabulous tourist destination thus; ensuring food safety has garnered importance in public health. Spicy meat curries are popular among consumers and the majority of them belong to the low-income category. Hence, the aim of this descriptive cross-sectional study was to detect Clostridium perfringens and associated preventive measures to appraise the safe meat curry consumption in Colombo city. This spore bearer is ubiquitous in nature and found in a variety of food commodities. Furthermore, this fastidious bacterium is frequently found in meat curries and meat-based dishes. Two hundred meat curry samples comprising 100 chicken and 100 beef were purchased from proportionately selected 200 eating houses in Colombo which have been registered in the Colombo Municipal Council. Spread plate and enrichment techniques were used to optimize the isolation. Subsequently, presumptive identification was done and confirmed by biochemical tests. Confirmed colonies were enumerated and expressed as colony forming units (cfu) per gram of food.  Thus, C. perfringens was not detected in 61 % of meat curry samples comprising 69 % beef and 53% chicken curries. Safety measures either in preparation and/or storage have been taken by 75- 95% of eating houses, where this cultivable bacterium was not detected. Therefore, as indicated by our findings, safe meat curry consumption in the 21 st century without foodborne pathogens, could not be an over-ambitious goal. Further improvements can be done through the valuable service of Public Health Inspectors (PHIs) about the microbial quality of food. Published on 2022-06-28 00:00:00
       
  • Effect of five medicinal plant leaves on survival, oviposition and progeny
           development of cowpea bruchid, Callosobruchus maculatus (F.) infesting
           cowpea seeds in storage

    • Abstract: Over 90% of the insect damage to cowpea seeds is caused by Callosobruchus maculatus. Although, many chemicals have proven their efficacy against C. maculatus, they adversely affect the natural environment. Death of non-targeted species which are natural enemies of other insect pests and development of resistance to chemicals is possible. Therefore, the current study was conducted to determine the effect of plant leaves of Murraya koenigii (“Karapincha”), Pandanus amaryllifolius (“Rampe”), Vitex negundo (“Nika”), Pavetta indica (“Pavatta”) and Croton aromaticus (“Wel keppetiya”) on adult mortality, oviposition, and progeny development of C. maculatus. Plant leaves were tested in both fresh form and powdered form. The plant leaves were mixed with cowpea seeds to have two concentrations followed by the introduction of 5 pairs of C. maculatus adults. The maximum adult mortality, minimum oviposition and the minimum progeny development were observed when the cowpea seeds were treated with C. aromaticus leaves. The mortality increased to 100% when the seeds were treated with the combination of C. aromaticus – P. amaryllifolius – V. negundo (WPN) plant leaf powders.  This study suggests that fresh plant leaves or plant leaf powder of C. aromaticus can be used against C. maculatus to protect cowpea seeds in storage.

  • Low-cost microfluidic electrochemical paper-based device to detect glucose

    • Abstract: Continuous monitoring of the level of glucose is essential to maintain the health of a diabetic patient. The use of invasive methods to obtain blood samples to detect glucose is the current method, but such methods may not be preferred by patients. Non-invasive methods such as the determination of glucose based on saliva or sweat can be preferred by patients for continuous monitoring. A low-cost electrochemical microfluidic paper-based analytical device (µPAD) suitable to monitor glucose levels using sweat and saliva is introduced. This device is extremely low-cost due to the use of a paper matrix and varnish for the fabrication of paper. Pseudo-reference stainless steel is used with a working electrode anodized using sodium potassium tartrate tetrahydrate for the development of a three-electrode system. Cyclic voltammetric-based analysis of glucose with µPAD produced a linear response in the working range of 1-10 mmol dm-3 with a limit of detection of 0.058 mol dm-3. The detection of diabetic conditions using saliva and sweat is possible using the device by correlating to the blood glucose levels using prior literature data.

  • The abundance of mosquito larvae in relation to associated microbiota and
           physicochemical parameters of marshland habitats in Kelaniya in Gampaha
           district of Sri Lanka

    • Abstract: The abundance of mosquito larvae in relation to associated microbiota and physicochemical parameters of water in marshes from selected habitats in Kelaniya divisional secretariat area, of the Gampaha district, Sri Lanka were studied. Culex gelidus was found to be the dominant mosquito species found in marshes followed by Culex whitmorei, Culex tritaeniorhynchus, Culex quinquefasciatus, Culex fuscocephala, and Anopheles peytoni. Fourteen species/taxa of microbiota were identified. There was a significant positive correlation between the abundance of Cx. gelidus larvae and level of organic pollution in marshes as measured by the five-day Biological Oxygen Demand. A positive correlation for the presence of Cx. fuscocephala and Cx. gelidus in the marshland was also observed. Nevertheless, abundance of Cx. gelidus was negatively correlated with Cx. quinquefasciatus and Cx. whitmorei. The presence of Culex gelidus and Cx. tritaeniorhynchus were positively correlated with Daphnia magna indicating their co-existence in the same habitat requirement. Culex gelidus was negatively affected by the epibiont, Vorticella microstoma, when the latter organisms were present in higher densities. In contrast, the presence of Cx. whitmorei was positively influenced by the Vorticella microstoma, Difflugia corona, nauplius larva, and Keratella valga. There was a negative correlation between Cx. whitmorei and Monostyla bulla (Rotifera; Monogononta) and between the abundance of Cx. fuscocephala and Lecane luna in the same marshland. This study concludes that mosquito larvae and some microbiota are interdependent in marshlands. The level of abundance of mosquito larvae and microbiota varied with the level of water pollution. Cx. gelidus larvae are biologically affected by Vorticella microstoma. Many microbiota species compete with mosquito larvae for the same food items. Published on 2022-04-05 00:00:00
       
  • Population dynamics and breeding preference of Aedes aegypti and Ae.
           albopictus attributing to dengue threat in Kelaniya medical officer of
           health area in Sri Lanka

    • Abstract: Aedes aegypti and Ae. albopictus are the two species of dengue vector mosquitoes in Sri Lanka. Indoor and outdoor distribution of these species, their population dynamics and breeding preference are important factors determining the dengue transmission. Gampaha district in Sri Lanka reported to have frequent dengue epidemics from recent past, hence this study was conducted. Ovitrap surveillance was conducted to determine the vector species distribution in indoor and outdoor in Kelaniya Medical Officer of Health (MOH) area of the Gampaha district. Larvae were reared until emergence of adults in the laboratory to identify species morphologically. Breeding preference of vector mosquitoes were carried out by physically observing the presence of mosquito larvae in water accumulated  receptacles in  the area. Aedes aegypti and Ae. albopictus were reported to distribute throughout Kelaniya MOH area as a mixed population. Ae. albopictus is the most abundant species both indoor and outdoor in Kelaniya MOH area compared to Ae. aegypti. Weather factors, rain days and wind positively correlated with Aedes population. High risk areas were identified as Kiribathgoda and Hunupitiya in this study. Published on 2021-12-31 00:00:00
       
  • Calcium ion adsorption of Leucaena leucocephala wood biochar activated
           with coconut vinegar

    • Abstract: A positive correlation has been reported recently among the number of Chronic Kidney Disease of Unknown Etiology (CKDu) patients and the levels of groundwater hardness. Hence, the need for a low cost and a simple domestic process to reduce the hardness of potable water is identified to improve living standards of low-income communities in these disease affected areas. Biochar has emerged as a low cost adsorbent for water treatment, because of its abundance and cost-effectiveness. This study was aimed to evaluate the ability of natural coconut vinegar, in activating Leucaena leucocephala wood biochar to be used in calcium ion (Ca2+) removal from potable water. Column tests showed a 1.7 fold increase of Ca2+ adsorption capacity and a 7 fold increase of Ca2+ retaining capacity upon the vinegar treatment. Batch studies matched with both Langmuir (R2 = 0.9761) and Freundlich (R2 = 0.9785) isotherm models. Ca2+ amount in solutions were measured using flame photometry. Ca2+ adsorption capacities of raw biochar and activated biochar determined by column tests ranged from 3.10-3.82 mg/g and 5.27-6.68 mg/g respectively while Ca2+ retaining capacities ranged from 0.16-0.22 mg/g and 1.28-1.4 mg/g respectively. Fourier transform infrared spectra, suggests hydration of the C-O-C bridges of the biochar surface introducing new -O-H groups and possible introduction of carbonyl/ ester/carboxylic functional groups to the biochar surface upon vinegar treatment. According to scanning electron microscopy porosity of the biochar remained stable after the vinegar treatment. Published on 2021-12-28 17:04:44
