The crystal structure of m-methoxy-Nʹ-(m-anisoyl)-N-phenylbenzohydrazide has been determined by means of single-crystal X-ray diffraction. The title compound crystallizes in the monoclinic space group P 21/c with unit cell parameters: a = 8.7338(1), b = 24.5602(3), c = 9.6929(1) Å, β = 113.186(2)°, V = 1911.23(4) Å3, Z = 4. The dihedral angles between the mean plane of the central benzene ring and two terminal aromatic rings are 72.44(4)° and 89.90(4)°, respectively. The two methoxyphenyl rings are orthogonal with a dihedral angle of 89.74(4)°. The crystal packing is stabilized by a combination of N–H ⋯ O intermolecular hydrogen bonding and weak intermolecular C–H ⋯ O interactions. The X-ray structure was compared with the optimized counterpart calculated by the B3LYP/6-311G basis set and the results showed that the optimized geometry can reproduce the crystal structure parameters well. © 2016 by the authors; licensee MDPI, Basel, Switzerland.

Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer affecting the mesothelium lining. It is usually caused by asbestos exposure or exposure to nanofibers. Median survival is less than one year in the mesothelioma patients. Due to its severity, there is a dire necessity to find out new diagnostic and therapeutic strategies. Some recent strategies could help us in fighting against mesothelioma. Diagnostic tools include a range of biomarkers or biotechnological procedure. Therapeutic tools include chemotherapeutic strategies along with immunotherapy, gene therapy and alternative therapy.

The problem of water pollution acquires greater relevance in the context of a developing agrarian economy like Pakistan. Even though, the leather industry is a leading economic sector in Pakistan, there is an increasing environmental concern regarding tanneries because they produce large amounts of potentially toxic wastewater containing both trivalent and hexavalent chromium, which are equally hazardous for human population, aquaculture and agricultural activities in the area. Therefore, we defined the scope of the present study as to employ different bioassays to determine the eco-toxic potential of tannery effluent wastewater (TW) and its chromium based components, i.e., potassium dichromate (K2Cr2O7) and chromium sulfate Cr2(SO4)3. Particle-induced X-ray emission (PIXE) analysis of TW was carried out to determine the concentration of chromium in TW and then equal concentrations of hexavalent (K2Cr2O7) and trivalent chromium Cr2(SO4)3 were obtained for this study. Cytotoxicity assay, artemia bioassay and phytotoxicity assay was utilized to investigate the eco-toxicological potential of different concentrations of TW, K2Cr2O7 and Cr2(SO4)3. All the dilutions of TW, K2Cr2O7 and Cr2(SO4)3 presented concentration dependent cytotoxic effects in these assays. The data clearly represents that among all three tested materials, different dilutions of K2Cr2O7 caused significantly more damage (P < 0.001) to vero cell, brine shrimp and germination of maize seeds. Interestingly, the overall toxicity effects of TW treated groups were subsequent to K2Cr2O7 treated group. Based on biological evidences presented in this article, it is concluded that hexavalent chromium (K2Cr2O7) and TW has got significant eco-damaging potential clearly elaborating that environmental burden in district Kasur is numerous and high levels of chromium is posing a considerable risk to the human population, aquaculture and agricultural industry that can obliterate ecosystem surrounding the tanneries.

This review is about the history of those black skinned people who were treated like slaves in the past because it was believed that black skinned people were born to serve others in fact they are slaves who have no right to live like humans. Alice Walker in "STRONG HORSE TEA" focuses how Rannie Toomer lost her only child and how she has become the victim of white men's exploitation who suffered from superiority complex and they considered themselves torch-bearers and civilized but in reality they are in need to be civilized and they are savage, ignorant, cruel and prejudice.

The aim of this novel research was to determine the toxic burden of increased elements in water resources on the inhabitant wild animals (squirrels, turtles, bats), using particle induced x-ray emission (PIXE) and histopathological approaches. PIXE analysis of skin, muscle, lung, liver and kidney revealed significant increase in Al, Cl, Fe, Mg, Mn, Si and V. Moreover, data clearly reflect a significant (P < 0.001) deposition of toxic elements (Al, Cl, Fe and K) in the lung producing interstitial/proliferative pneumonitis, intra-alveolar hemorrhages, and thickening of alveolar capillary walls. The results obtained from the liver samples emphasized that majority of the animals were intoxicated with Cl, Mg, S, Si and V, which have produced profound deterioration and swelling of the hepatocytes. Likewise, histopathology of the kidney sections spotlighted severe nephritis and degenerative changes, which could be associated with the elevated amount of Al, Cl and Mg. This data undoubtedly provide relevant information on the heavy burden of toxic elements and their pathological outcomes in wild animals and highlight their potential risks for human exposure. Thus, the information provided is critical for developing effective strategies in dealing with health hazards associated with elemental exposures. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

The disproportionate imbalance between the systemic manifestation of reactive oxygen species and body's ability to detoxify the reactive intermediates is referred to as oxidative stress. Several biological processes as well as infectious agents, physiological or environmental stress, and perturbed antioxidant response can promote oxidative stress. Oxidative stress usually happens when cells are exposed to more electrically charged reactive oxygen species (ROS) such as H2O2 or O2-. The cells' ability to handle such pro-oxidant species is impeded by viral infections particularly within liver that plays an important role in metabolism and detoxification of harmful substances. During liver diseases (such as hepatocellular or cholestatic problems), the produced ROS are involved in transcriptional activation of a large number of cytokines and growth factors, and continued production of ROS and Reactive Nitrogen Species (RNS) feed into the vicious cycle. Many human viruses like HCV are evolved to manipulate this delicate pro- and antioxidant balance; thus generating the sustainable oxidative stress that not only causes hepatic damage but also stimulates the processes to reduce treatment of damage. In this review article, the oxidant and antioxidant pathways that are perturbed by HCV genes are discussed. In the first line of risk, the pathways of lipid metabolism present a clear danger in accumulation of viral induced ROS. Viral infection leads to decrease in cellular concentrations of glutathione (GSH) resulting in oxidation of important components of cells such as proteins, DNA and lipids as well as double strand breakage of DNA. These disorders have the tendency to lead the cells toward cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma in adults due to constant insult. We have highlighted the importance of such pathways and revealed differences in the extent of oxidative stress caused by HCV infection. © 2013 Paracha et al.

Vehicle accidents are widespread these days. They cause loss of invaluable human lives as well as huge loss of property. An efficient accident avoidance system has been a great need since the invention of motor vehicles. We propose a vehicle accident warning system based on image processing techniques. It uses two criteria for enabling accident warning. These are driver drowsiness and front vehicle distance from our vehicle. Drowsiness, especially in long distance journeys, is a key factor in traffic accidents. We use visually observable facial behaviors as indicators of driver drowsiness. For face tracking, we use Viola-Jones face detection algorithm. The eyes region is found using a novel approach to check whether they are close or open. Other image processing techniques are used to calculate distance of front vehicles. Along with this software design, an easy to build hardware is used to complete the said system to be used in realtime. To evaluate the effectiveness of proposed system, a number of drowsy persons were tested and evaluated. Experimental results show high accuracy in each section which makes the system efficient and reliable for accident warning. © 2013 IEEE.
