Cerebral palsy (CP) is a major neurodevelopmental disorder, presently estimated to affect approximately 1 in 500 children. As a clinical diagnosis, the etiology of the syndrome varies and is often unknown. The objective of this study is to determine the pattern and the contributing factors of CP among Libyans children. This was a descriptive hospital-based study conducted over a period of six years in ALBYDA Central Hospital – LIBYA. One hundred and eight patients of CP were enrolled, of whom 70 (65%) were males and 38 (35%) were females. Spastic quadriplegic CP was the most common type and epilepsy was the most problem associated with CP. Birth asphyxia, prematurity neonatal meningitis, kernicterus and brain malformation were the main contributing factors.

Background: Hypothyroidism in the simplest terms can be defined as deficient production of thyroid hormone. Primary hypothyroidism indicates decreased secretion of thyroid hormone by factors affecting the thyroid gland itself. A decrease in serum concentrations of thyroid hormone causes an increased secretion of Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH), thus resulting in elevated serum TSH concentration [1-4]. Even though, classical texts of Unani Medicine does not have mention of Hypothyroidism,but the clinical features of Hypothyroidism resemble with the Alamat–wa- awarizat (clinical features) of su'- mizaj barid /su'- mizaj balghami (impaired cold temperament/impaired phelgematic temperament) . In this context, a hypothesis was drawn that su'- mizaj barid /su'- mizaj balghami (impaired cold temperament/impaired phelgematic temperament) may be interpreted with the clinical features of hypothyroidism using modern scientific parameters.

The paper deals to minimize the water crisis of a drought prone area in Bangladesh. In this research an alternative and low-cost effective cultivation method has been developed. In the technique a composition of traditional agricultural fertilizers (Agronaris, DAP, MP, Dolochun, Gypsum, Magnesium Sulfate and Iron Sulfate), cow urine and pond water has been used as nutrient medium. For medium of cultivation recyclable bottles, foams, bamboo, coco coir, semidried Eichhornia leaves were used. Tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill.); Pepper (Capsicum); Lettuce (Lactuca sativa) were used as experimental plant. Plant survival rate of tomato showed highest value of 92.86% respectively followed by lettuce with 78.57% and pepper with 42.86% in value after 2 months of observation. Growth rate and hairy root formation were found to be higher in tomato than lettuce and pepper. Pepper showed less response in these three parameters where maturation rate of pepper is better than Tomato as pepper needs 39.33±0.49 days to ripen the fruits but tomato took 47.5±0.39 days in fruit ripening. Though tomato takes more time to be mature than pepper, the growth of the both plants are as same.

Wheat, also known as Triticum Aestivum that is the predominant ingredient in the human diet. Weed indirectly affects the production of wheat, harboring the crop by challenging the crop for large pests, management of water intervention, reduction of grain input and efficiency, and rising processing costs. The faster growth in a thick, enclosed canopy is facilitated by a canopy, the general mechanism for improving cereal crop competition over weed species. Crop geometry is an old discipline in agriculture. It is referring to the plant's spatial arrangement and specifies the layout of the population of crops. Without concurrent grain yield loss, non-uniform geometry, such as seedling tossing, is aimed at minimizing labor intensity. Chemical and hand weeding has also been used in wheat as a weed control method. Herbicide incorporation and hand weeding greatly reduced the dry weight of weeds relative to dry weight in untreated parcels. Crop tailoring is typically calculated in three ways as a function of competition: tillering output rate, final tillering number, and tillering economy. Additional studies will help to explain the essence of the relationships of characteristics and skills in locations and seasons.
