Page no 201-210
The world is paying more attention and trying to eliminate the use of substance that are toxic to human and the environment. The use of some organic and inorganic corrosion inhibitors exhibit toxicity and research has been ongoing on the use of eco-friendly substitutes. Plant extract, dyes and drugs have shown good corrosion inhibitive capabilities and this work gives a summary of several works that have been done on the use of drugs as efficient corrosion inhibitors for mild steel which is mostly used in the petroleum and petrochemical industry in acidic media such as HCl and H2SO4.

In today's information technology world, the Internet of Things is a popular notion. In the future, the Internet of Things will turn everyday things into intelligent virtual objects. The Internet of Things (IoT) aims to integrate everything in our environment together under a unified infrastructure, allowing us to not only control but also keep track of our surroundings. According to an analysis of IoT history, the number of IoT devices has increased in recent years and is expected to grow dramatically in the coming years, indicating that IoT will interact in every aspect of our lives. The applications of IoT vary from a small network like home automation to large networks like cloud-based industry applications. This paper revisits the some important historical events of Internet of Things from the beginning. Furthermore, Many State of Art applications of IoT are presented in this article. This research will be useful and helpful for future research in the field of IoT.

The primary intention of this practice is to numerically investigate the extracellular fluid (ECF) flow for unsteady 2-dimenstional case along with a porous vertical plate with the appearance of a transverse magnetic field in a rotating system. The dimensional basic equations have been non-dimensionalized by necessary dimensionless variables. The EFDM has been practiced to solve the dimensionless equations. The numerical data have been evaluated by FORTRAN software version 6.6a. For a perfect conductivity, Magnetic Diffusivity Number values have been taken between 5 to 15 in the induction formula. For proper exactness, stability and convergence tests have been performed. For initial time , the outputs have been illustrated for the primary, secondary and angular velocity, primary and secondary induced magnetic field, temperature field with shear stresses for and -direction, couple stress for -direction, and -direction current densities and Nusselt number. Finally, the outcomes of different parameters are discussed separately and pictorial graphically by MATLAB R2018a.The findings of this research may be used to control cell temperature, measurement of extracellular fluid motion, and so on.

The study has been carried out with the objective to explore the provision of occupational safety and health standards in Nepalese legislation in building construction of Gautam Buddha International Airport. For this building such as international terminal building, administrative building, control tower, and fire rescue block were taken for study and analysis. For this population size, sample size of respondent was taken through purposive sampling method. The study found that enforcement status of rules and regulations at construction site was not satisfactory. Most of the workers even didn’t hear about labour act and labour regulation, yet. There was poor implementation of rules & regulations in project site by contractor. Not even a single project was found of having provision of safety officer and no any factory inspector visit to project site till date by which it could easily predict the implementation status of labour act and labour regulation. While a legal framework has been developed, the proper implementation of such legislation is a must to keep up with changing times. The workers must be aware of safety requirement. A saturator action against the issue should be enforced through strong safety committee.

Introduction: Cloud computing is an innovative paradigm that provides users with on-demand access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources such as servers, storage, and applications. Objectives: This study aimed to evaluate the acceptance of employees in the medical records and E-health departments to cloud computing in King Khalid General, Hafar Al-Batin, Saudi Arabia. Further, it determined their perceived level of understanding and knowledge to this technology especially on its utilization in safely accessing and securing personal health record of patients. Method: A total of 53 participants filled-up and completed the survey questionnaire that measures their level of knowledge and understanding to cloud technology. A descriptive cross-sectional design was utilized for this study. Results and Discussion: From the results of the survey, a general mean of 3.72 and standard deviation of 1 having a verbal intepretation of ‘agree’ were obtained. These results translates to an acceptable level of utilizing cloud computing in the hospitals. Conclusion: Cloud computing creates an efficient management of patient health records making it more accessible and secured. It is an innovative management approach of record databases in a Saudi hospital with a promising future to be adopted by other hospitals in Saudi Arabia.

The dynamic business environment is ingrained with high levels of competition eulogizing the need for salient functional strategies to stay afloat. Thus, the management of the manufacturing industry must formulate and implement functional strategies which would guarantee their competitiveness. However, after years of policy mending through strategic framework and government interventions the sugar factories in Kenya are still under- performing with low productivity culminating to low competitiveness and massive indebtedness within the industry. It is in this regard that the study was designed to assess the effect of functional strategies such us financial, marketing, production, human resources on competitiveness of sugar industries in western Kenya as moderated by government interventions. The study relied on institutional theory, Porters generic theory and resource-based view theories. In a bid to effectively achieve this, the study adopted a cross-sectional study design based on samples drawn from across the sugar industry in western Kenya. The study relied on all heads of departments and supervisors of all the five sugar firms which are 98 purposively selected. Data was collected by use of a questionnaire from the respondents and analyzed by use of both inferential and descriptive statistics using SPSS version 25. From the study findings correlations among the functional strategies and competitiveness were significant. With a moderator the variables jointly explained 66.6% (R2= 0.666) variation in competitiveness of sugar industry with a significant F change at ρ<.05. In conclusion government intervention significantly influences the relationship between functional strategies and competitiveness of sugar industry. The management of sugar industry should formulate and implement functional strategies in line with government interventions to effectively enhance their competitiveness.
