    This study exploits Theory of Planned Behaviour to capture the entrepreneurial intention among students in Universiti Utara Malaysia (UUM). It was revealed that entrepreneurial skills, environmental support and motivational were the key factors which positively related with entrepreneurial intention among the students. Self administered questionnaires were distributed to the students of Bachelor in Business Administration (BBA) and Bachelor of Entrepreneurship (BEnt) students in UUM in order to identify their entrepreneurial intention and the influence factors. A stratified sampling technique was used to among 200 students who participated in the study. Generally, results show that entrepreneurial skills; environmental support and motivational factors are significantly related to the entrepreneurial intention. The implication of this study shows that the entrepreneurial intention of BBA and BEnt student in UUM is supported by the environment that would enable the student to start their own busines

    Comparison Between Fuzzy and P&O Control for MPPT for Photovoltaic System Using Boost Converter

    This paper presents fuzzy control method for maximum power point tracking (MPPT) of photovoltaic (PV) system under varying irradiation and temperature conditions. The fuzzy control method has been compared with perturb and observe (P&O) method as one of the most widely conventional method used in this area. Both techniques have been analyzed and simulated. Fuzzy technique gives better and more reliable control for this application. Keywords: Photovoltaic, MPPT, P&O, FUZZY

    The Common between Malay Language and the Qur'an A model of curriculum for teaching Arabic to Malay speakers

    Get PDF
    AbstractThe Arabic language has a high position in the hearts of Muslims and their conscience, and there is no surprise in that; as it is the language of the holy Quran and the language of the noble hadith that the Noble Prophet uttered, and it is also the language of the honourable people of Paradise, and it is no wonder, then, that Muslims like learning the Arabic language. Study Problem: It is known that teaching Arabic to native speakers is different from the way it is taught to native speakers. It is also known that learning Arabic for Muslims is very important to master the recitation of the Holy Qur'an, and understand its secrets; so this study came to try to walk the way to teach Arabic and teach the Qur'an at the same time.   "Multiple statistics have shown that the majority of the main reasons behind the turnout of non-Arabic speakers depend on the desire to learn the language of the Qur'an."[1]   Study Methodology: In preparing this study, the researchers relied on the descriptive approach.  Objectives of the study:  This study aims to prepare a list of common vocabulary between Malay and Qur'anic words for use in building an integrated educational curriculum, to teach Arabic to Malay speakers.   Study Results: The results of this study show that the use of common vocabulary between Malay and Qur'anic words in building a curriculum to teach Arabic to Malay speakers, has implications for the development of students' language skills and the development of their trends towards the study of ArabicKeywords: common vocabulary list - Malay - language skills - non-native speakers - trends. [1] - Abdel-Ati, Muhammad Rajab, and Al-Khatib Muhammad.

    Synthesis and characterization of new 3,5-disubstituted-4,5-dihydro-1H-pyrazole and their carbothioamide derivatives

    Get PDF
    A new series of substituted pyrazolines (6-10) were synthesized in moderate to excellent yield by treatment of chalcones (1-5) with hydrazine monohydrate. The carbothioamide compounds (11-14) were obtained in 65% to quantitative yield by treatment of chalcones (2, 4, and 5) either with thiosemicarbazide or with phenylisothiocyanate. All new compounds were characterized by various spectroscopic methods such as 1H NMR, 13C NMR, DEPT, COSY, HSQC spectroscopy, elemental analysis, and high resolution mass spectroscopy. The obtained compounds are currently under biological investigations, and the results will be reported elsewhere

    Adrenaline action in normal and insulin-resistant Zucker rat skeletal muscles : Effect on insulin-stimulated glucose uptake and glycogen breakdown

    Get PDF
    Abstract Carbohydrates are the major source of energy for most humans and account for about 60% of the energy consumed. In the human body carbohydrates are stored as glycogen in the liver and in the skeletal muscles. Regulation of glycogen synthesis is of great importance in the process of blood glucose homeostasis as glucose is stored as glycogen. Insulin and adrenaline are the most important hormones which regulate glycogen breakdown and glucose uptake. Adrenaline normally contrasts the effect of insulin in metabolic regulation. Insulin stimulates glucose uptake and synthesis of glycogen and lipids leading to energy accumulation whereas adrenaline decreases insulin-stimulated glucose uptake, increases energy expenditure and stimulates breakdown of glycogen and lipids. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of adrenaline on insulin-stimulated glucose uptake and glycogen breakdown in soleus and EDL muscles from lean and insulin resistant obese Zucker rat. Experiments were done in vitro, as muscles were surgically removed from rats and incubated with insulin, adrenaline or insulin and adrenaline together. Other muscles were stimulated electrically. Glucose uptake was calculated from the intracellular accumulation of ³H-deoxy-D-glucose during incubation while glycogen content was measured through hydrolyzing of glycogen with amyloglucosidase. The formed glucose measured indirectly by measuring the amount of hexokinase and glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase fluorometrically. In this study my results showed that adrenaline decreased insulin-stimulated glucose uptake in soleus and EDL muscles from lean and obese Zucker rats. Adrenaline was without effect on basal glucose uptake in soleus muscles from lean and obese Zucker rats. We found also that, glycogen content was higher in soleus muscles from obese Zucker rats than in soleus muscles from lean littermates in control rested state and after exposure to adrenaline. Adrenaline stimulated glycogen breakdown in insulin resistant EDL muscles but not in normal muscles. In conclusion, adrenaline decreased insulin-stimulated glucose uptake in both normal and insulin resistant muscles. Furthermore adrenaline stimulated glycogen breakdown in EDL but not soleus muscles from obese Zucker rats. This suggests that β-adrenergic signaling is not impaired in insulin resistant muscles
