Omar Al-Mukhtar University , located in Bayda, started as an Islamic university. It was founded in 1835 by Ali al-Sanusi of the religious group 'Kzawip Senussi' in 1961. It has grown to be a moderately religious institute and teaches students the correct practises in regards to scripture reading and interpretation. OAMU educates students from many locations worldwide, including Malta, Cyprus, Egypt, Malaysia, Indonesia, Sudan and Chad.The Baksmha procedure room of OAMU is capable of housing thousands of students, although clashes between different religious sects has led to a shortage of experienced preachers and speakers. However, after the revolution, Fatih University has been rejected as a beacon to the Islamic Movement of mother-to-Senussi, a movement now banned in Libya.OAMU now belongs to the Faculty of Agriculture, the University of Garyounis is an independent and established university general in 1984. Follow the General People's Committee for Higher Education in the name of the campus now. Wikipedia.

This paper presents a generalized formulation to determine the optimal operating strategy and cost optimization scheme for a MicroGrid. Prior to the optimization of the MicroGrid itself, models for the system components are determined using real data. The proposed cost function takes into consideration the costs of the emissions, NOx, SO2, and CO2, start-up costs, as well as the operation and maintenance costs. A daily income and outgo from sold or purchased power is also added. The MicroGrid considered in this paper consists of a wind turbine, a micro turbine, a diesel generator, a photovoltaic array, a fuel cell, and a battery storage. In this work, the Mesh Adaptive Direct Search (MADS) algorithm is used to minimize the cost function of the system while constraining it to meet the customer demand and safety of the system. In comparison with previously proposed techniques, a significant reduction is obtained. © 2009 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

This paper presents a generalized formulation for determining the optimal operating strategy and cost optimization scheme and reduction of emissions of a MicroGrid (MG). Multiobjective (MO) optimization is applied to the environmental economic problem of the MG. The proposed problem is formulated as a nonlinear constrained MO optimization problem. The proposed problem takes into consideration the operation and maintenance costs as well as the emission reduction of NO x, SO 2, and CO 2. The MG considered in this paper consists of a wind turbine, a micro turbine, a diesel generator, a photovoltaic array, a fuel cell, and a battery storage. The Multiobjective Mesh Adaptive Direct Search (MOMADS) is employed to minimize the cost function of the system while constraining it to meet the costumer demand and safety of the system. A comparison is made with Multiobjective Sequential Quadratic Programming (MOSQP). The results demonstrate the efficiency of the proposed approach to satisfy the load and to reduce the cost and the emissions. © 2011 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

This paper proposes a generalized formulation to determine the optimal operating strategy and cost optimization scheme for a MicroGrid (MG) for residential application. Genetic Algorithm is applied to the environmental/economic problem of the MG. The proposed problem is formulated as a nonlinear constrained MO optimization problem. Prior to the optimization of the microgrid itself, models for the system components are determined using real data. The proposed cost function takes into consideration the costs of the emissions, NOx, SO2, and CO2, start up costs, as well as the operation and maintenance costs. The MG considered in this paper consists of a wind turbine, a microturbine, a diesel generator, a photovoltaic array, a fuel cell, and a battery storage. The optimization is aimed at minimizing the cost function of the system while constraining it to meet the costumer demand and safety of the system. We also add a daily income and outgo from sale or purchased power. The results demonstrate the efficiency of the proposed approach to satisfy the load and to reduce the cost and the emissions. The comparison with other techniques demonstrates the superiority of the proposed approach and confirms its potential to solve the problem. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

Insulin-like growth factors (IGFs) and their binding proteins (IGFBPs) are key regulators of fetal growth. However, the literature is inconsistent. Our objective was to systematically and objectively evaluate the available literature and to develop a balanced opinion on the relation between maternal and fetal IGF-axes and birthweight. A systematic review and a meta-analysis were conducted according to the published Moose (Meta-analysis of Observational Studies in Epidemiology) guidelines. A robust recognized systematic methodology was used in the literature search and analysis to avoid bias. Weighted mean difference and 95% confidence intervals of cord/maternal IGFs and IGFBP-1 and -3 were calculated. Eleven observational studies were included. Cord IGF-I (p < 0.0001) and IGFBP-3 (p = 0.003) were significantly higher in large-for-gestational age (LGA) than appropriate-for-gestational age (AGA) babies. Cord IGFBP-1 was significantly higher in small-for-gestational age (SGA) than AGA babies (p < 0.0001). LGA and AGA babies had similar IGF-II levels, whereas SGA and AGA babies had comparable IGF-I levels. IGF-I was significantly higher in mothers of AGA than SGA babies (p < 0.0001). The assay methods and background population marginally affect the overall homogeneity and the direction of the primary analysis. Fetal IGFs and their binding proteins play different roles in fetal growth at either end of the growth spectrum. Fetal IGF-I and IGFBP-3 may be influential in LGA. However, fetal IGFBP-1 has a more prominent role in SGA. © 2013 Nordic Federation of Societies of Obstetrics and Gynecology.

Cisplatin is a potent chemotherapeutic agent with a wide range of activities. Nephrotoxicity and cardiotoxicity represent it's major complication upon clinical use. The present study was carried out to evaluate the possible protective effect of DL-α-lipoic acid (LA) against cisplatin-induced nephrotoxicity and cardiotoxicity. Different groups of rats (n = 10) were administered either saline (control), cisplatin (10 mg/kg, i.p.), LA (100 mg/kg, i.p.) or their combination (LA 30 min prior to cisplatin administration). Twenty-four hours later all animals were decapitated and sera were used for estimation of activities of urea (BUN), creatinine (Cr), lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), and creatine kinase (CK). Homogenates of the kidney and heart were used for estimation of oxidative stress markers (reduced glutathione (GSH), malondialdehyde (MDA), superoxide dismutase (SOD), and nitric oxide (NO)). Additionally, caspase-3 activities and DNA-fragmentation were investigated in renal tissues. The results showed that cisplatin produced significant elevation in serum activities of LDH, CK, BUN, and Cr and also induced significant elevation in the oxidative stress makers (MDA and NO) accompanied by significant reduction in GSH and SOD in both kidney and heart. The integrity of DNA was heavily damaged and caspase-3 was activated in renal tissues. The results emphasized nephrotoxicty and cardiotoxicity of cisplatin. On the other hand, prior administration of LA significantly attenuated the cisplatin-evoked disturbances in the above mentioned parameters and protected both kidney and heart tissues. The histopathological examination emphasized the obtained results. In conclusion, LA is suggested to be a potential candidate to ameliorate cisplatin-induced nephrotoxicity and cardiotoxicity without altering the antitumor efficacy of cisplatin.


The effect of the charge and the nature of both the cations and the anions of some electrolytic salts: sodium fluoride (NaF), potassium fluoride (KF), sodium bromide (NaBr), potassium bromide (KBr), sodium iodide (NaI), potassium iodide (KI), sodium sulfate (Na2SO4), potassium sulfate (K2SO4), calcium chloride (CaCl2), and barium chloride (BaCl2), on the solubility of zwitterionic amino acids (glycine, DL-alanine, DL-valine, and DL-serine) in aqueous solutions at 298.15 K are studied and discussed. A salting-in effect is observed for all amino acids under investigation with all electrolytes used in the present study, except for DL-alanine and DL-valine in aqueous solutions containing sodium fluoride where a salting-out effect was observed. The orders of the effect of the nature and the charge of both the anions and the cations are: F- < CI - < Br- < NO-3 < SO 2-4 with both sodium and potassium cations; Na +

This paper describes studies of functionalized mesoporous silica employed as adsorbent for Mn(II) from aqueous solutions. The surface area of MCM-41 and diethylenetriamine functionalized-MCM-41 used in this study were 760 and 318m2g-1 (N2 adsorption). A strong dependence on pH in the Mn(II) adsorption capacity and best results were obtained at pH 6.5-7. The adsorption onto the diethylenetriamine functionalized-MCM-41 followed the pseudo-second-order kinetic model and the highest reaction rate 0.324min-1 was observed at low initial concentration 10ppm. The equilibrium data showed excellent correlation with the Langmuir isotherm model and the maximum adsorption capacity of Mn(II) reached 88.9mg/g for DETA-MCM-41 indicating that the adsorption occurs on a homogeneous surface by monolayer sorption without interaction between the adsorbed ions. These data contribute to the understanding of mechanisms involved in mesoporous silica and provide some practical clues to improve the adsorption efficiency (uptake capacity and kinetics) of Mn(II) ions. © 2014 Elsevier Inc.
