Land and Conflict in Balovpur Village: The Role of Land Mediation

Mohammad Al-Amin, Rokeya Akter
2022 Zenodo  
Because of changes in some underlying factors, the land is increasingly becoming a source of conflict in rural areas of Bangladesh. One of the greatest issues Bangladesh is currently facing is the resolution of land disputes, which are causing endless difficulty in the lives of a significant percentage of the people. It adds to the already overburdened judiciary's caseload. Resolution of property disputes in Bangladesh is exceedingly difficult, laborious, long, and exorbitant due to a weak

This Study examines the numerous types of land- related conflicts that exist in Boluvpur village in Cumilla district, to highlight the legal concerns and obstacles that arise in their resolution. The research is conducted through primary and secondary data sources and primary data collected by interviews and mixed questionnaires. The author contends that to solve legal concerns in the settlement of land disputes regarding villages, the outdated land-uses planning system would require fundamental revisions and provide more recommendations.

2021 Alternative Medicine [Working Title]  
Alternative medicine has renewed its growing public interest in recent times due to inequality of patients and healthcare professionals' ratios with increased workload for the latter, various side effects of modern medicine, lack of complete remission from chronic diseases, high cost of new drugs, and emerging new diseases. Hence, people have become more dependent on treatment systems replying on alternative medicine or herbal medicine from traditional medicinal practitioners. Alternative

The significant areas of alternative medicine include mind–body therapies, body manipulation, and the therapies based on biological systems. Natural products based biological treatment is the most popular of them as nature has endowed us with abundance of effective pharmacologically active phytochemicals. These phytochemicals possess numerous specific clinical health benefits including antioxidant, antidiabetic, anti-inflammatory, anticancer, anti-infectious and analgesic effects. In addition, alternative medicine is easily accessible, affordable, most often noninvasive, and provides favorable benefits during terminal periods of some diseases. However, due to the lack of well-designed clinical trials, the safety and effectiveness of many alternative medicines/therapies remains elusive. This chapter will critically discuss major areas, uses, safety and regulation, current challenges & future perspectives of alternative medicine.

2017 PLoS ONE  
Dengue has been a major public health concern in Australia. This study has explored the spatio-temporal trends of dengue and potential socio-demographic and ecological determinants in Australia. Data on dengue cases, socio-demographic, climatic and land use types for the period January 1999 to December 2010 were collected from Australian National Notifiable Diseases Surveillance System, Australian Bureau of Statistics, Australian Bureau of Meteorology, and Australian Bureau of Agricultural and

Descriptive and linear regression analyses were performed to observe the spatio-temporal trends of dengue, socio-demographic and ecological factors in Australia. A total of 5,853 dengue cases (both local and overseas acquired) were recorded across Australia between January 1999 and December 2010. Most the cases (53.0%) were reported from Queensland, followed by New South Wales (16.5%). Dengue outbreak was highest (54.2%) during 2008-2010. A highest percentage of overseas arrivals (29.9%), households having rainwater tanks (33.9%), Indigenous population (27.2%), separate houses (26.5%), terrace house types (26.9%) and economically advantage people (42.8%) were also observed during 2008-2010. Regression analyses demonstrate that there was an increasing trend of dengue incidence, potential socio-ecological factors such as overseas arrivals, number of households having rainwater tanks, housing types and land use types (e.g. intensive uses and production from dryland agriculture). Spatial variation of socio-demographic factors was also observed in this study. In near future, significant increase of temperature was also projected across Australia. The projected increased temperature as well as increased socioecological trend may pose a future threat to the local transmission of dengue in other parts of Australia if Aedes mosquitoes are being established. Therefore, upgraded mosquito and disease surveillance at different ports should be in place to reduce the chance of mosquitoes and dengue cases being imported into all over Australia.

Group B 1 consisted of 50 primary infertile women and group B 2 consisted of 50 secondary infertile women. Rest 50 age matched apparently healthy parous women were considered as base line control group A. All the study subjects were selected from out patient department of infertility unit, BSMMU, Dhaka. The control subjects were selected by personal contact. Serum fasting insulin was measured by enzyme-link-immunosorbend assay. Fasting blood glucose and blood glucose two hours after breakfast were measured by glucose oxidase method. The Data were collected in a prescribed data sheet after taking written consent. Statistical analyses were done by unpaired students "t" tests by SPSS program version 12. The level of significance was calculated and p value <0.05 was accepted as level of significance. Results: In this study, the mean fasting serum insulin level were significantly higher in infertile women than those of fertile women (p<0.001). Within the study group serum fasting insulin was higher in primary infertile women than that of secondary infertile women both were statistically not significant. Again, serum FSH and LH levels were significantly lower (P<.0001) in infertile women than those of fertile women. But serum FSH level was lower and LH level was higher in primary infertile women than that of secondary infertile women. In addition, fasting blood glucose level was almost similar but within normal limits in all groups. Blood glucose 2HABF was significantly higher in secondary infertile women than that of fertile women but within in normal limit. Moreover, fasting serum insulin level was negatively correlated with serum FSH and LH in primary infertility but negatively correlated with serum FSH and positive correlation with serum LH in secondary infertility. Conclusion: From the above study it may be concluded that fasting serum insulin level was higher in infertile women than those of healthy fertile women. These alterations may lead to menstrual irregularities, ovulatory dysfunction and infertility.

Neurodegenerative diseases (NDDs) are disorders that affect both the central and peripheral nervous systems. To name a few causes, NDDs can be caused by ischemia, oxidative and endoplasmic reticulum (ER) cell stress, inflammation, abnormal protein deposition in neural tissue, autoimmune-mediated neuron loss, and viral or prion infections. These conditions include Alzheimer's disease (AD), Lewy body dementia (LBD), and Parkinson's disease (PD). The formation of β-sheet-rich aggregates of intra-

In systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), numerous organs, including the central nervous system (CNS), are affected. However, the inflammatory process is linked to several neurodegenerative pathways that are linked to depression because of NDDs. Pro-inflammatory signals activated by aging may increase vulnerability to neuropsychiatric disorders. Viruses may increase macrophages and CCR5+ T cells within the CNS during dementia formation and progression. Unlike medical symptoms, which are just signs of a patient's health as expressed and perceived, biomarkers are reproducible and quantitative. Therefore, this current review will highlight and summarize the neurological disorders and their biomarkers.

Both the space-time scan statistic (SaTScan) and Geographical Information System (GIS) were used to identify and visualise the space-time clusters of dengue cases at SLA level. A total of 1,773 dengue cases with 632 (35.65%) autochthonous cases and 1,141 (64.35%) overseas acquired cases were satisfied for the analysis in Queensland during the study period. Both autochthonous and overseas acquired cases occurred more frequently in autumn and showed a geographically expanding trend over the study period. The most likely cluster of autochthonous cases (Relative Risk, RR = 54.52, p<0.001) contained 50 SLAs in the north-east region of the state around Cairns occurred during 2013-2015. A cluster of overseas cases (RR of 60.81, p<0.001) occurred in a suburb of Brisbane during 2012 to 2013. These results show a clear spatiotemporal trend of recent dengue cases in Queensland, providing evidence in directing future investigations on risk factors of this disease and effective interventions in the high-risk areas.

Sixty five percent were house wife. Thirty seven (61.7%) women were multi gravid. Mean gestational age of the patient was 34.43±2.75 weeks. Antenatal care of the women was low. Most of the women have associated one or more diseases like anemia (35%), Urinary tract infection (28.33%), Pregnancy induced hypertension (20%), Lower genital infection (13.33 %,), gestational diabetes mellitus (10%) and heart disease (3.33%). The mean time interval between membrane rupture and delivery was 29±9 hours. Thirty one patients (51.7%) were delivered by caesarian section. Twenty eight (46.7%) women did not experience any complication and other suffered from wound infection (20%), PPH (10%), puerperal sepsis (8.33%) and chorioamnionitis (11.7%). Mean birth weight of the newborns was 2.16±0.42 Kg. Thirty eight (63.33%) newborn suffered from complications like neonatal asphyxia (30%), respiratory distress syndrome (13.3%), neonatal jaundice (11.7%) and neonatal sepsis (3.3%). Neonatal death was noticed in three (5%) cases. Fetal outcome was found significantly (p< 0.001) associated with low gestational age. Conclusion: Women with low education, associated co-morbidity, long latency and neonate with low birth weight have unfavorable outcome. Antenatal care is an important tool to prevent preterm prelabor rupture of the membrane by identifying the risk factors and its management. Optimum obstetric and medical care is essential for the reduction of these devastating complications. TAJ 2020; 33(2): 1-9

Recent years researchers have seen an increase in interest in natural products that have antitumor effects with minimal side effects. Natural products, on the other hand, are easy to recover and therefore less expensive. There have been several scientific studies done based on these compounds that have tested their ability in vitro and in vivo to induce tumor radiosensitization. The role of natural products in RT, as well as their usefulness and potential applications, is the goal of this current review.

Overall, these phytonutrients are found to inhibit BC cell proliferation, differentiation, invasion, metastasis, angiogenesis, and induce apoptotic cell death by targeting various molecular pathways. They also alter epigenetic mechanisms and enhance the chemosensitivity and radiosensitivity of cancer cells. Such phytochemicals may be used for the effective management of BC patients in the clinical setting in the future. The present article aims to summarize the specific molecular pathways involved in the genetic effects of phytochemicals in BC.

2022 Life  
P-glycoprotein (P-gp) is a major factor in the multidrug resistance phenotype in cancer cells. P-gp is a protein that regulates the ATP-dependent efflux of a wide range of anticancer medicines and confers resistance. Due to its wide specificity, several attempts have been made to block the action of P-gp to restore the efficacy of anticancer drugs. The major goal has been to create molecules that either compete with anticancer medicines for transport or function as a direct P-gp inhibitor.
more » ... te significant in vitro success, there are presently no drugs available in the clinic that can "block" P-gp–mediated resistance. Toxicity, unfavourable pharmacological interactions, and a variety of pharmacokinetic difficulties might all be the reason for the failure. On the other hand, P-gp has a significant effect in the body. It protects the vital organs from the entry of foreign bodies and other toxic chemicals. Hence, the inhibitors of P-gp should not hinder its action in the normal cells. To develop an effective inhibitor of P-gp, thorough background knowledge is needed in this field. The main aim of this review article was to set forth the merits and demerits of the action of P-gp on cancer cells as well as on normal cells. The influence of P-gp on cancer drug delivery and the contribution of P-gp to activating drug resistance were also mentioned.
