FP4BATIW is a coordination and support action addressed to foster partnerships and networking aiming to implement the best available water treatment technologies in the MPC region by promoting the interaction between highly qualified members, both from EU and MPC, of the knowledge value chain on water treatment and corresponding stake holders community (national water agencies, municipalities, industrial waste water producers, entities managing business incubators, etc.) This action will lead to new approaches, tools and innovation, integrating sustainability aspects and allowing the collaboration between experienced and new teams for coaching and capacity building in cooperation and innovation. Such fostering activities will contribute to reduce the gap between research & innovation and the water treatment market enhancing synergies and allowing the concentration of efforts, know-how exchange, co-ownership and dialogue. FP4BATIW is founded over the activities carried out by several partners (13 members from EU and MPC) participating in different EU projects in the MPC region with a common central topic of water treatment technologies and the implementation of a platform of synergies around EU and MPC projects integrating water component for a capitalization, a concentration of the efforts and a maximization of the impacts and the resources (overcoming fragmentation and duplication and facilitating related TT). The regional cluster and cooperation activities that will be performed through 6 different work packages under FP4BATIW will provide additional links between research, technology enterprising and water users to enhance competitive research in water use efficiency. In this concern, 10% of the project budget has been earmarked for clustering activities to be organised with other on-going R2I projects targeting the MED region. These activities will be defined in coordination with the European Commission notably in the context of the International Learning Network (ILN), the idea will be to exchange information and best practices between the different projects and identify issues and possible activities of common interest in order to draft a roadmap for cooperation between the projects. The continuous cluster cooperation will contribute to adopt the Mediterranean Water Strategy and related Action Plan that will provide the financial and instrument framework for the future, partnerships to create conditions for competitive research in water use efficiency, use of non-conventional waters, risk management and regional joint funding for trans-basin cooperation and regional water innovation programme. Indicated activities will ensure coordination with relevant actions engaged by the European Neighborhood and Partnership Instruments (ENPI), the Preparatory Action funded by the European Parliament and those implemented through the EIT and its Knowledge Innovation Centres including the Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme (CIP).

This study sought to describe type, frequency, purpose and patterns of herbal medicine used by a sample of patients with cancer in Palestine.A cross-sectional survey of patients attending the outpatient cancer departments at the Governmental Hospitals was undertaken using semi-structured questionnaires. Results: A total of 1260 patients with cancer were interviewed. Of the participants, 60.9% (n = 767) reported using herbs primarily bought from Palestine (92.3%) frequently employed in the form of decoctions (43%). The most common herbal product was Arum palaestinum (22.5%). Most Complementary and Alternative (CAM) users were more than 40 years of age, predominantly female, and living in rural areas of Palestine. Family member's recommendation was cited as the main factor prompting participants to use CAM (43.5%). Conclusion: This study revealed that there is an appreciable prevalence of herbal use among patients with cancer in Palestine. © 2011 Elsevier Ltd.

The kinetic reduction of glycine (Gly) by 40.0 μM 2,7-dibromo-4-(hydroxymercuri)-fluoresceine disodium salt [DBHFS] in 0.001 M NaOH at 25°C in aqueous and/or in 30 mM and micellar solutions has been studied using optical absorption at 520 nm. The present data show that the reaction is first-order with respect to [Gly] and [DBHFS]. Also, k obs is constant within the 0.1 mM-0.1 M NaOH range. The reduction was fastest in TX-100, slower in SDS and slowest in CTAB system, that is, rateTX-100 > rateH2O > rateSDS > rateCTAB. Effects of salting-in and salting-out agents have been investigated for real-time application in the reduction process. The salting-in agent urea has been found to uniquely enhance the rate of the reduction of Gly by DBHFS in the presence of micelles. Detailed kinetic and thermodynamic aspects have been considered to realize the interaction between Gly and DBHFS ion. Kinetic studies revealed that the reaction follows pseudo first order reaction kinetics. © 2013 Copyright Taylor and Francis Group, LLC.

Gaza Strip is a poor and densely populated area by the Mediterranean Sea; β-thalassaemia is a socioeconomic problem in Gaza Strip. The number of thalassaemia patients in Gaza is 321, with an annual increase of about 5%. Patients receive free treatment. The cost of treatment of these patients is considered a burden on the budget of the Ministry of Health, not to mention the emotional suffering of the patients and families. The classical methods of thalassaemia control (public education, population screening, gene counseling, prenatal diagnosis) are costly. Gaza adopted the obligatory premarital tests in 2000, with the number of premarital tests made per year reaching about 10,000. Out of 100,000 marriages in 10 years, the number of couples where both are carriers is 223 and of those, the number who refused to separate was 71 couples. Ten years after the adoption of the obligatory premarital tests the evaluation of the program showed excellent results, and the number of new β-thalassaemia cases has dropped to zero. © 2012 - IOS Press and the authors.

As the mobile telecommunication systems are tremendously growing allover the world then the numbers of handheld and base stations are also rapidly growing and it became very popular to see these base stations distributed everywhere in the neighborhood and on roof tops which has caused a considerable amount of panic to the public in Palestine concerning wither the radiated electromagnetic field from these base stations may cause any health effect or hazard. This paper focuses on the radiated electromagnetic energy from some typical mobile base stations around the city of Nablus. The exposure levels due to these stations were measured and compared to some international standard guidelines like ICNIRP and FCC to see if it meets these standards, this is in order to answer some of the public fear and concern. The results are presented and some comments are made on the other sources of electromagnetic radiation in the 200 kHz to 3 GHz range. © 2011 Kavala Institute of Technology.

Star-junction multiplexers are used when the number of channels is relatively small since the resonating junction has to be connected to many filters' outputs. In this paper, novel topologies of star-junction multiplexers with resonating junctions are proposed. The advantage of the proposed topologies is that the number of connections to the resonating junction is reduced and thus allowing multiplexers with more channels to be implemented. An optimization technique is used to synthesize the coupling matrix of the proposed multiplexers, and numerical examples are illustrated in this paper.

In this work, we consider different waveguide structures comprising a metal and a dispersive negative index material (NIM) which has negative permittivity and permeability over a frequency band in the microwave range of several GHz. In the first structure, one interface separating a semi-infinite metal and a semi-infinite NIM is assumed. In the second structure, a NIM slab is sandwiched between a metal and a dielectric material whereas in the third structure a metal slab is embedded in a NIM medium. The dispersion relations and the conditions for surface polariton excitation at the interfaces are derived, plotted and discussed. Penetration depth and modal refractive index are also studied. © 2013 Elsevier GmbH.

This letter proposes a new technique of restoring images distorted by random-valued impulse noise. The detection process is based on finding the optimum direction, by calculating the standard deviation in different directions in the filtering window. The tested pixel is deemed original if it is similar to the pixels in the optimum direction. Extensive simulations prove that the proposed technique has superior performance, when compared to other existing methods, especially at high noise rates. © 2011 IEEE.
