Abstract: The environmental stresses such as high or cold temperatures, heat, UV irradiation and infection by pathogen stimulate the production of secondary metabolic products that have medicinal values and antioxidant properties such as phenolics and flavonoids. This study aimed to investigate the effect of seasonal variations of climatic conditions on phenolic and flavonoid compounds, as well as antioxidant capacity of three plant species belong to different families growing naturally in Wadi Halazein. The investigated plants were Seriphidium herba-alba, Teucrium polium and Peganum harmala. The results indicated that the total contents of phenolics and flavonoids was significantly affected by species and season and tended to increase during the climatic condition of summer season. The results.....

|Title||:||Warburg effect and Intralipid effect on the mitochondria of cancer cells|
|Authors||:||Joseph Eldor, MD|
Abstract: Otto Warburg observed that cancers ferment glucose in the presence of oxygen, suggesting that defects in mitochondrial respiration may be the underlying cause of cancer.
As stated by Otto Warburg nearly a century ago, cancer is a metabolic disease, a fermentation caused by malfunctioning mitochondria, resulting in increased anabolism and decreased catabolism. Treatment should, therefore, aim at restoring the energy yield......

Abstract: In order to curb the dietary problems caused by protein deficiency, the FAO estimates that the demand for meat should increase by 200 million tonnes between 2010 and 2050, which is practically a doubling of the volumes currently produced (ANDRIAMIFIDY, 2001). Given the important place that meat and these processed products occupy in human nutrition, it is important to know how to preserve these perishable foods without losing their nutritional value (FAO, 2007). Indeed, the sausage provides the human body with proteins of good biological value, vitamins, minerals, lipids and energy, like all food products, they deteriorate quickly especially when the storage conditions are bad.

Abstract: Industrialization and population growth on our planet has led to a greater emission of pollutants into ecosystems. The coastal marine area of Ilo is the most important aquatic ecosystem on the southern coast of Peru, receiving effluent discharges from the Osmore River, urban wastewater and from industries near the coast. Therefore, studies are necessary to determine the level of heavy metals in the marine environment and to determine potentially dangerous levels for hydrobiological resources and humans. The concentration of heavy metals (Pb, Cu, As) and oils and fats in seawater were determined in parallel at four beaches located in the port of Ilo, Peru, which is an industrial....

Abstract: The purpose of this study is to see if renewable energies contribute to environmental pollution and beyond to know if this relationship is linear. To this end, the study focused on two West African economies with similar characteristics during the period 1980-2018. To do so, the Nonlinear Autoregressive Staggered Lag Model (NARDL) developed by Shin et al., 2014 allowed us to reach two major results. First, positive and negative changes in renewable energy do not have the same absolute effects on the environment. Second, any one percentage point increase in renewable energy consumption leads to a reduction in C02 production of about 0.02 percentage points for Côte d'Ivoire and 0.05.....

|Authors||:||Dr. Ramesh Kumar Tamboli|
Abstract: Chhattisgarh state is situated at the center of the India. It is a tropical climate state popularly known as 'Bowl of the rice'. District Janjgir-Champa is leading rice producing zone of the state. The soil is Kanhar with good water retention property. Before last two decade the farmers are taking only single crop of rice but after providing good irrigation facilities by Hasdo-bango irrigation project a network of irrigation canals were established and farmers are producing double crop of rice. During the monsoon the paddy fields are prepared for sowing the first crop and the paddy is harvested mostly till November. During this period rice fields were filled with running as well as stagnant water. A number of inland culture fish farming programs are going on but no investigations on capture fishes.....

Abstract: Pollution of the soil environment by petroleum hydrocarbon has been recognized as one of the most serious problems in the world, resulting to damage of flora and fauna. This damage is not limited to potent immune-toxicity and carcinogenic nature of the hydrocarbon, but its ability to reduce soil aeration leading to low oxygen availability to living organisms as well as obstruction in soil nutrients uptake by the flora community. The pre bioremediation assessment study of crude oil spilled soil was conducted in kokori area with sole purpose of determining the extent of hydrocarbon pollution, estimation of microbial population as well as analysis of physical and chemical properties of the soil using standard analytical procedures.....

Abstract: The problem of waste management in Purwokerto City is quite complex, it cannot be handled just on a project-based, but must be comprehensive with a vision for the future. In order to create a green city, it is not only the task of the government, but also requires the support of full participation from the community. Goodwill and political will from the government in realizing a green city must be supported by the community. The government recently has implemented waste processing technology to minimize the amount of waste (zero waste) towards green waste, with a hangar system, but until now it has not been successful. Community participation in reducing the amount of household waste is needed so that it can answer and solve the problems faced. The objective of the research is to build green community....
