Arsenic, antimony and bismuth, three related elements of group 15, are all found in trace quantities in nature and have interesting biological properties and uses. While arsenic is most well known as a poison – and indeed the contamination of groundwater by arsenic is becoming a major health problem in Asia – it also has uses for the treatment of blood cancer and has long been used in traditional chinese medicine. Antimony and bismuth compounds are used in the clinic for the treatment of parasitic and bacterial infections. Biological Chemistry of Arsenic, Antimony and Bismuth is an essential overview of the biological chemistry of these three elements, with contributions from an international panel of experts. Topics covered include: chemistry of As, Sb and Bi biological chemistry of arsenic biological chemistry of Sb and Bi arsenic and antimony speciation in environmental and biological samples arsenic in traditional chinese medicine arsenic in aquifers biomethylation of As, Sb and Bi uptake of metalloids by cells bismuth complexes of porphyrins and their potential in medical applications Helicobacter pylori and bismuth metabolism of arsenic trioxide in blood of the acute promyelocytic leukemia patients anticancer properties of As, Sb and Bi radio-Bi in cancer therapy genotoxicity of As, Sb and Bi metallomics as a new technique for As, Sb and Bi metalloproteomics for As, Sb and Bi Biological Chemistry of Arsenic, Antimony and Bismuth conveys the essential aspects of the bioinorganic chemistry of these three elements, making this book a valuable complement to more general bioinorganic chemistry texts and more specialized topical reviews.

Project Report from the year 2017 in the subject Biology - Micro- and Molecular Biology, grade: 5, , language: English, abstract: Arsenic contamination of groundwater has remained a critical open issue in numerous world areas, especially in Uttar Pradesh in India, in light of its intense and ceaseless harmfulness and cancer-causing properties. In 1993, the World Health Organization set an arsenic permissible level of 10ug/L in its drinking water rules. Practical procedures to expel arsenic from ground water must be produced to make water fit for drinking. Previous studies have shown that this region of India is characterized by extensive As pollution of rivers and ground waters by both geologic and anthropogenic activities. The various other states, including, Jharkhand and Bihar are at biggest risk, because of the flood plain of the Ganga River. In many foods a trace amount of arsenic is essential for good health. However, the excess of this element causes cellular damage in biological system, like gastrointestinal and respiratory disorder. Skin, liver and bladder cancer. Both inorganic arsenate As and arsenite As exist together in natural environment. Arsenite is more toxic than arsenate. As frequently prevails as 74 to 98% of aggregate arsenic. Arsenic is harder to evacuate than As. Utilizing ordinary methods, for example, precipitation, adsorption, particle trade and layer filtration and coagulation were used to remove arsenic from contaminated waters. All these methods a...

The Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) disaster that occurred in Ukraine on April 26, 1986, was one of the most devastating in human history. Using this as a case study, the AGU monograph Groundwater Vulnerability: Chernobyl Nuclear Disaster is devoted to the problem of groundwater vulnerability, where the results of long-term field and modeling investigations of radionuclide transport in soil and groundwater, within the Ukrainian part of the Dnieper River basin (Kyiv region of Ukraine), are discussed. The authors provide a comprehensive review of existing literature on the assessment of groundwater vulnerability and then describe an improved methodology, which is developed based on integration of the methods of hydrogeological zonation and modeling of anomalously fast migration of radioactive contaminants from the land surface toward groundwater. This volume also includes the evaluation of the effect of preferential and episodic flow on transport of radionuclides toward the aquifers and risk assessment of groundwater vulnerability, which can further assist future researchers in developing remediation technologies for improving drinking water quality. Further, this volume sheds light on the consequences of groundwater contamination from nuclear disasters and assists with assessing the risks associated with contamination and developing effective remediation technologies. Volume highlights include discussions of the following: – Assessment of groundwater vulnerability to contamination from the Chernobyl nuclear disaster – Novel analytical results of the 25-year investigations of groundwater contamination caused by Chernobyl-born radionuclides – The wealth of data on different modes of radioactive transport in the atmosphere, water, and soils, and along the food chains – The hydrogeological and physico-chemical processes and factors in groundwater contaminated zones – The applicability of commonly used methods of the evaluation of groundwater vulnerability – A unique method of fluid dynamics that involves an anomalously fast migration of contaminants through zones of preferential flow from the land surface toward groundwater – Building confidence in the assessment of migration pathways of radionuclides in the biosphere – Assessment and prediction of the consequences of the nuclear accident, which can shed light on protection from global nuclear accidents – Analogue information for different nuclear waste disposal and environmental projects around the world

Shikdar MD Socio-Economic Conditions of Bihari Community in Bangladesh

Relatively a huge number of populations who came from different parts of India mainly from Bihar after the partition of the sub-continent (Ahmed, 2003) in 1947 and settled in Bangladesh and opposed the liberation war of Bangladesh in 1971 are known as Bihari, a stateless community, artificial minority or stranded Pakistanis. The Bihari community in Bangladesh is deprived of all rights. They are subject to deprivation. They could hardly manage jobs for themselves, which reflected their economic insecurity and food insecurity as well. Inadequate medical facilities in the camps indicated their insecurity of health, thereby becoming vulnerable to various diseases and poor health with debilitating illness. Absence of ownership of land is a violation of human rights. Personal security gets hampered due to identity crisis of the Bihari people because they are not considered citizens of Bangladesh .as well as they do not have any political rights (though court declared their voting right in 2008) to participate in party politics by which they could protect themselves from violation of human rights and other forms of criminal activities. They were excluded from mainstream society.

Dr. RAJA RIZWAN HUSSAIN, Engr. FERDOUS AHMED Harvested Rainwater

Bangladesh is a tropical country and receives heavy rainfall during the rainy season. The average rainfall in the coastal region is more than 3000 mm, against an average rainfall of about 2400 mm in Bangladesh. In the coastal district, high salinity in surface and ground water and rainwater harvesting for drinking purposes is a common practice in a limited scale for a long time. In the present context of arsenic pollution of shallow ground water aquifer, rainwater harvesting is being seriously considered as an alternative option for water supply in the arsenic affected areas. There is no extensive study of the seasonal variation of harvested rainwater as well as its suitability for drinking purpose throughout the year especially during the dry period. The main objectives of this book are to investigate seasonal quality of harvested rainwater, mineral contents and people's perception of rainwater harvesting. This study was performed at Shyamnagar thana under Satkhira district, one of the coastal area of Bangladesh. Water sample was collected from nine different storages of rainwater harvesting system for field and laboratory test of the water quality parameters.

Scientific Essay from the year 2010 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Linguistics, Moscow State Pedagogical University (Moscow State Pedagogical University), course: lexicology and stylistics, language: English, abstract: The course investigates some structural, semantic, stylistic and pragmatic specifics of contamination in modern English by comparing it with other word-building patterns - composition, derivation, combining forms and their multiple varieties. Contamination is currently made use of in different types of discourse - advertisements, periodicals, terminology. The aim of the selective course is multiple: first, to prove that contamination is losing its marginal status and is moving centripetally towards the centre; second, to compare contamination with other, contiguous and not, word-forming models; third, to propose a number of exercises that would increase students' awareness of such words. The ultimate aim is to dispel the skeptical attitude towards such words by dint of showing that not all of them are facetious, superfluous or fancy. The course also aims to discuss the application of contamination in advertising and information technology. The intention of the author is to raise students' awareness of the genesis of an utterance. The book is meant for foreign language students, post-graduate students, who mean to link their research to word-formation, teachers of English, as well as for a broader audience of philologists and li...

Abigail Gacusana Community Based Adaptation to Climate Change. A Case Study of Bangladesh

Thesis (M.A.) from the year 2008 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Topic: Development Politics, grade: Merit, University of Birmingham, course: International Development, language: English, abstract: Climate change is a global concern with its impending threats to economies, human development and the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals. Climate change impacts are currently being observed and studies show that poor countries are the most vulnerable. Using Bangladesh as a case study, this research examines the impacts of climate change to poor, rural communities and further explores the measures that are carried out to combat its existing and future threats. This research also aims to look into the existing socio-economic vulnerabilities of Bangladesh in order to establish the linkage between climate change and development. Findings of this study show that poor communities are impacted by climate change through the loss of lives, assets and livelihoods. Adaptation to climate change is therefore necessary and should be integrated in development planning and objectives, to ensure that the most vulnerable groups are represented. Overall this research has observed that Bangladesh is still lacking this capacity, despite the spontaneous adaptation being practised by local communities. This study has further observed that the most common response in addressing climate change impacts to vulnerable communities in Bangladesh is community-based adaptation, whi...

Farjana Islam Mainstreaming Climate Change Policy in Bangladesh

In Bangladesh, climate vulnerability is increasing along with poverty. But during international climate change debates, concern over 'justice' is glowing to finance adaptation. In this line, Bangladesh formulated 'National Adaptation Programme of Action (NAPA)' under UNFCCC guidance to abate climate change impact. The research views 'mainstreaming' as a process of promoting 'adaptation' to "transform vulnerability into (climate) security". In Bangladesh, NAPA mainstreaming is government-led and subject to use existing institutions and regulatory frameworks. Therefore, in what extend NAPA mainstreaming will be successful to promote 'socially-just adaptation to climate change' is difficult to predict. Here, the context is critically analyzed to structure institutional problems and actor dynamics to recommend policy amendments for intended mainstreaming. However, successful mainstreaming lies on balancing conflicts among diverse actors in order to promote security for the vulnerable people. Therefore, the research is arguing that the treatment of social justice must be included both in NAPA formulation and implementation phases for intended (socially-just) mainstreaming.

OM HARI Making Sense on Sanitation. The Case of Uttar Pradesh and Bangladesh

The issue of age old practice of open defecation and the provision of safe sanitary facilities to the people at the same time, has been one of the most difficult challenges before the Indian policy makers. The author investigates the rural sanitation campaign in Uttar Pradesh, a state in India, drawing on possible policy lessons from Bangladesh to use the techniques of Information,Education and Communication as a tool for mass mobilization for ensuring active community participation in the Clean India Campaign(Nirmal Bharat Abhiyan)to go for a sustained demand generation for toilets, its community ownership and finally bringing about lasting sanitary behavioral changes through inter-personal and inter-community communication. The author after deep investigations in the backward areas of Uttar Pradesh, having largely socio-economically vulnerable population, suggests certain grass root level policy interventions in order to meet out the ambitious sanitation targets under the Millennium Development Goals as set by the United Nations. The findings hold immense relevance in the wake of the resolve taken by the new Government in India to go for a clean India by the year 2019.

Najmul Haider, Golam Shahi Alam Reproductive Performance of Dairy Cows in Bangladesh

Bangladesh has one of the highest densities of livestock in the world with 145 large ruminants per square kilometer. Dairy is the most important sector of livestock industry in Bangladesh that provides greater part of animal source protein for human consumption. Lifetime productivity of cows largely depends on their individual reproductive performance. In most countries, the primary objective of a reproductive control program in a dairy herd is to have each cow calve and produce a live calf in every 12 months. Like in many other countries, poor reproductive efficiency has been considered to be the major limiting factors in medium and large scale market oriented dairying in Bangladesh for achieving this goal. This book highlighted the overall reproductive efficiency in main milk pocket area of Bangladesh combining both traditional and recent measures of reproductive indexes.

The Ready Made Garments (RMG) sector emerged as an important economic sector of Bangladesh from early 1980s. The importance of RMG sector for the national economy of Bangladesh can hardly be overemphasized. The industry has contributed to export earnings, foreign exchange earnings, employment creation, poverty alleviation and the empowerment of women. In the recent past incidence of physical violence, gherao, demonstrations, rallies, work stoppages/strike, termination of workers, lay-off, lock-out, etc. in the readymade garment sector of Bangladesh have noticeably increased. In the backdrop of frequent clashes between owners of garments factories and disgruntle workers this study attempts to verify whether or not Workers' Participation in Management (WPM) is being practiced here in the RMG Sector of Bangladesh. The study found that WPM does not in the real sense exist, in the RMG sector of Bangladesh. The researches proposed some recommendations for the Government and the concerned associations of both employers and workers to help WPM exercised in the RMG sector of Bangladesh.

Tina Peissker The Governance of Climate Change Adaptation in Developing Countries

Diploma Thesis from the year 2011 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Environmental Policy, grade: 1,3, University of Potsdam (Chair of International Poilitics), language: English, abstract: The prospects that global climate change will have adverse effects on human societies opened up a discourse about how adaptation should be managed. In order to finance adap-tation measures, the parties of the Kyoto Protocol recently established the Adaptation Fund in 2007. In view of the limited resources that are available for adaptation, scales for the prioritization of countries according to their suspected vulnerability have been developed in the literature. Indicators of vulnerability highlighted within this literature, only reflect the indicators of human development and therefore fail to capture the complex structures of vulnerability. The collective learning approach assumes that vulnerability can be significantly decreased when governance systems adapt to external changes through collective learning processes. The present thesis connects to this notion and therefore assesses the influence of collective learning processes on the vulnerability of the Bangladeshi and Pakistani society towards flood hazards. It does so in order to find a determinant of vulnerability that is able to capture its complexity. Following a case study comparison that is based on a systematic research on primary and secondary literature this study reconfirms that vulnerability can substantiall...

Emmanuel David Togba Why community policing in Liberia was less effective

Master's Thesis from the year 2017 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Topic: Peace and Conflict Studies, Security, grade: 68, Coventry University, course: Terrorism, International Crimes and Global Security, language: English, abstract: Community policing is a new phenomenon widely used to provide security extension through police-community partnership or cooperation between the state security providers and the community. This philosophy has proven to be an alternative for developing countries especially where the state capacity to provide security is limited. This process involves using the community for crimes information, crimes prevention and fighting crimes. Hence, various communities have adopted the approach of combining community partnerships with people and police personnel as it leads to strengthening crime prevention, combating strategies and procedures (Wehrman 2011). However, the results of COP in different part of the world vary especially judging from the different forms, challenges and different situations confronting the implementation. According to Wisler and Onwudiwe (2008) and Denny (2013), the Western model of the COP entails a situation where the State organize COP activities for proper community partnership while the African model is an establishment organized by the people. With either of the methods, Liberia's experience was less effective due to factors outlined as the exclusion of Non-state security providers from the SSR pro...

Master's Thesis from the year 2015 in the subject Business economics - Banking, Stock Exchanges, Insurance, Accounting, grade: 72, The Australian National University (Crawford School of Public Policy), course: Research Project: POGO8035, language: English, abstract: This study analyses gender issues in the corporate social responsibility (CSR) frameworks of commercial banks in Bangladesh with reference to four theoretical perspectives on CSR: instrumental, political, integrative and ethical. It examines how gender issues are addressing in CSR framework and how it could advance gender equality issues and how CSR policies relating to gender are translated by the commercial banks to integrate gender equality in their reporting in Bangladesh Bank (The central bank of Bangladesh). Based on the analysis of relevant data and information, it finds that gender issues of CSR are practicing mostly in instrumental and political way rather than integrative and ethical way due to regulatory requirement. However, the trends of practices are representing the positive approach to the integrative and ethical perspectives on gender issues in commercial banks of Bangladesh over time which could be proved in future for the time being.

Gias Uddin The Politics of Police Reform in Bangladesh

Police Reform, described as 'too hot to handle' by Stephen Savage, is a critical issue in the developing democracies.

The Police Act of 1861 is yet to be reformed to fulfill the requirements of democracy. The Government initiated Police Reform Programme (PRP), supported by Department for International Development (DFID) and United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), has been struggling to be implemented to reform the Police 'Force' of Bangladesh towards a Police 'Service'. This book has mainly focused on the complex issues of Policing and Police Reforms in Bangladesh with special emphasis on the Police Reform regard to developing democracies.

During the last 30 years cyclone has taken a great place in Bangladesh and it has been hit with worst ever cyclone in its history. All these natural disaster pose a great threat to sustainable development of the country. Over last 30 years (1970-2007) different scales of cyclones have been affecting the country with loss of valuable lives and property. It was estimated that about five million people currently live in 'High Risk Areas' (HRAs) along the western, central and south-eastern coasts of Bangladesh. Of these, 4 million live in 'Very High Risk Areas'. Approximately 9 million people need more shelter places were needed in the three cyclone-prone zones by the year 2001 and 12.5 million by 2021 as a result. In the last 30 years, nearly 900,000 people died by cyclones and six out of nine depressions formed in the Bay of Bengal normally cross the belt of Bangladesh almost every year.

Sources of soil and ground water contamination are widespread and include thousands of accidental spills and leaks of toxic and hazardous metals. An evaluation of hazardous metal transport through the soil media is one of the significant parts of Geo - environmental projects. The concept of contaminant transport relating to the migration or the fate of contaminant miscible in ground water from waste sites, dumping yards and industries are essential for the preparation of ground water contamination models. In the present study, an attempt has been made to analyze the mechanism involves one - dimensional contaminant flow transport considering sorption. A well organized study was conducted to analyze the fate of contaminants at surrounding areas of Hyderabad, Telangana State, India.

Motiur Rahman, Sohel Rana Microcredit as a Tool of Women Empowerment in Rural Bangladesh

Bangladesh is one of the most densely populated countries in the world where women comprise almost 50% of the total population, of whom around 80 percent live in the rural areas. Most women in the rural areas are treated as vulnerable and poorest of the rural poor. In this context the women are largely involved in income generating activities to promote economic growth and social transformation. Over the last two decades a number of non government organizations (NGOs) have emerged in Bangladesh to support the rural poor women by providing them with collateral fee small loans. With that loan they encourages the micro entrepreneurship like poultry, livestock rearing, small verities shop, tea stall, hand looms, handicrafts and transport van. Women involvement in microfinance organization and their entrepreneurship activities makes them financially empowered.

Suman Reza Role of Microcredit in the Development of Rural Women of Bangladesh

Microcredit operations began with the specific objective of poverty alleviation in Bangladesh. Poverty is widespread in Bangladesh. It is even more intense among the rural women of the country. Poverty situation improved with the expansion of microcrdit and rural women gained some empowerment as they had their own income through participation in the credit activities. But they are still far from achieving equal status with men because microcredit primarily addresses income poverty and it has inherent weaknesses in facilitating other conditions necessary for full empowerment of women. Not only are the inherent weaknesses, the socio-economic environment of rural Bangladesh, where microcredit functions, is also a big impediment to achieving women empowerment. Therefore, a comprehensive approach, which includes microcredit too, is necessary for further empowering the rural women of Bangladesh. This approach includes social mobilization, awareness-building, regulations enhancing, equitable financial practices and government initiatives.

Keally D. McBride Collective Dreams. Political Imagination and Community

How do we go about imagining different and better worlds for ourselves? Collective Dreams looks at ideals of community, frequently embraced as the basis for reform across the political spectrum, as the predominant form of political imagination in America today. Examining how these ideals circulate without having much real impact on social change provides an opportunity to explore the difficulties of practicing critical theory in a capitalist society. Different chapters investigate how ideals of community intersect with conceptions of self and identity, family, the public sphere and civil society, and the state, situating community at the core of the most contested political and social arenas of our time. Ideals of community also influence how we evaluate, choose, and build the spaces in which we live, as the author’s investigations of Celebration, Florida, and of West Philadelphia show.Following in the tradition of Walter Benjamin, Keally McBride reveals how consumer culture affects our collective experience of community as well as our ability to imagine alternative political and social orders.Taking ideals of community as a case study, Collective Dreams also explores the structure and function of political imagination to answer the following questions: What do these oppositional ideals reveal about our current political and social experiences? How is the way we imagine alternative communities nonetheless influenced by capitalism, liberalism, and individualism? How can these ...

Solomon Mkumbwa Social Protection Policy in Malawi. a case of social cash transfers

Since independence in 1964, Malawi's social policies were universal, built in a socialist framework and delivered by the state in sectors such as education, health, food, water, housing, and energy. Following the weakening and/or dismantling in the late 1980s to early 1990s, of the heavy state apparatus and interventions in the provisioning of these social services, both poverty and vulnerability deepened and broadened. Under the advice and/or coercion of the World Bank and IMF, the down-sizing and closure of state operations were aimed at cutting public spending and enhancing government's ability to repay its bad debts so that it can borrow fresh ones. However, both the approach and speed at which these reforms ensued drove many able-bodied people into joblessness and poverty, and chronically poor into state of destitution. The book picks on the Amartya Sen's entitlement theory, to analyze the social and economic benefits of direct cash transfers vis-à-vis in-kind transfers in addressing the rising chronic poverty and vulnerability among both the able-bodied and labour-poor households. Two case studies from Malawi are used to demonstrate the field evidence.

David John Lemon The Closure of the Templeton Centre

In the 1990s the New Zealand Government began the process of the closure of the Templeton Centre, which provided care for people with intellectual and multiple disabilities. This book investigates the social and economic discourse that led to the closure of that state institution. The author argues that Western Governments' neo-liberal economic agenda of reducing state structures, services and social spending was the driving force in the closure of state institutions. Also, political actors usage of the social discourses of deinstitutionalisation and normalisation are shown to have supported the shift to community care for the disabled. In addition, the author explores parental and community reaction to the closure of the state institution, where scepticism of the real reasons for the decision to close the Templeton Centre are debated in the media and letters to the editor in newspapers by these interested parties. Finally, the author summarises the effect of desinstitutionalistion on some of the ex-Tempelton residents now living in the community.

In this study, different PRA (Participatory Rural Appraisal) tools have been used to identify the problems faced by the people of ward no. 38 as a community. Though PRA tools are usually used for rural areas, through this research, an attempt has been made to apply these approaches in an urban community of Bangladesh. Local people have recognized lack of gas supply, lack of pure drinking water and poor road condition as the major problems in this area. Later, the nature and extent of these problems, causes behind them and their effects, the desires of the community people, their perceptions and recommendations for solving all these difficulties have been revealed using a variety of PRA tools.

The Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) disaster that occurred in Ukraine on April 26, 1986, was one of the most devastating in human history. Using this as a case study, the AGU monograph Groundwater Vulnerability: Chernobyl Nuclear Disaster is devoted to the problem of groundwater vulnerability, where the results of long-term field and modeling investigations of radionuclide transport in soil and groundwater, within the Ukrainian part of the Dnieper River basin (Kyiv region of Ukraine), are discussed. The authors provide a comprehensive review of existing literature on the assessment of groundwater vulnerability and then describe an improved methodology, which is developed based on integration of the methods of hydrogeological zonation and modeling of anomalously fast migration of radioactive contaminants from the land surface toward groundwater. This volume also includes the evaluation of the effect of preferential and episodic flow on transport of radionuclides toward the aquifers and risk assessment of groundwater vulnerability, which can further assist future researchers in developing remediation technologies for improving drinking water quality. Further, this volume sheds light on the consequences of groundwater contamination from nuclear disasters and assists with assessing the risks associated with contamination and developing effective remediation technologies. Volume highlights include discussions of the following: – Assessment of groundwater vulnerability to contamination from the Chernobyl nuclear disaster – Novel analytical results of the 25-year investigations of groundwater contamination caused by Chernobyl-born radionuclides – The wealth of data on different modes of radioactive transport in the atmosphere, water, and soils, and along the food chains – The hydrogeological and physico-chemical processes and factors in groundwater contaminated zones – The applicability of commonly used methods of the evaluation of groundwater vulnerability – A unique method of fluid dynamics that involves an anomalously fast migration of contaminants through zones of preferential flow from the land surface toward groundwater – Building confidence in the assessment of migration pathways of radionuclides in the biosphere – Assessment and prediction of the consequences of the nuclear accident, which can shed light on protection from global nuclear accidents – Analogue information for different nuclear waste disposal and environmental projects around the world
