Sensitive and selective detection of multiple metal ions using amino acids modified glassy carbon electrodes

Authors: Nisar A., Shah A., Zahid A., Iftikhar F.J., Hassan A., Shah A.H., She Z., Akhter M.S., Piro B., Kraatz H.-B.
We report for the first time the electrochemical detection of Zn2+, Cd2+, Cu2+ and Hg2+ at the surface of modified glassy carbon electrodes with different amino acids. The designed sensors showed superior heavy metal ion (HMs) detection limits, which are at lower levels than the thresholds suggested by the World [...]

Ergonomic Practices in Africa: Date Palm Agriculture in Algeria as an Example

Authors: Mokdad M., Bouhafs M., Lahcene B., Mokdad I.
For more than fifty years, early ergonomists such as [1–4] called for the application of ergonomics in developing countries to expand its application rather than its confinement to developed countries. Indeed, ergonomists from developing countries applied ergonomics to many traditional workplaces, machines, and jobs in the field of what was [...]

Traditional plant-based foods and beverages in Bahrain

Authors: Alalwan T.A., Mandeel Q.A., Al-Sarhani L.
Background: Traditional foods are an important part of Bahraini culture, identity, and heritage. The aim of this study was to document plant-based traditional foods and beverages consumed by local Bahrainis. Methods: Traditional knowledge of plants used as food and beverage was obtained through 76 personal interviews of knowledgeable informants using [...]

Ergonomic practices in Africa: Date palm work in Algeria as an example

Authors: Mokdad M., Bouhafs M., Lahcene B., Mokdad I.
Despite the call for the application of ergonomics in developing countries, the African share of ergonomic studies is modest. Date palm farming is considered one of the most important economic resources in hot and dry areas. In African countries, including Algeria, there exist millions of date palms. Date palm work [...]

Exploring ICT-enabled sustainability innovations development: A conceptual study

Authors: Kurnia S., Mahbubur Rahim Md., Samson D., Sedera D., Mazen A.
There have been global concerns with the sustainability of our planet for future generations. Organizations have been paying attention to harness the potential of information and communication technology (ICT) to support the development of innovations that can address global sustainability issues. However, currently little is known about how organizations can [...]

Toward sustainable development: Lessons from vernacular settlements of Sri Lanka

Authors: Dayaratne R.
From modern urban perspectives, indigenous housing practices are regarded as undeveloped, backward, and require improvements. They may be valid for measuring on the basis of standards alien to the communities. However, these perceptions have obfuscated the appreciation and potential adoption of holistic, culturally relevant, and traditionally tested approaches to planning [...]

Green and ecofriendly materials for the remediation of inorganic and organic pollutants in water

Authors: Tatarchuk T., Bououdina M., Al-Najar B., Bitra R.B.
The widespread of organic and inorganic pollutants in wastewater from various industries, are responsible for serious environmental problems meanwhile represent a danger for human being. Therefore, the search of cost-effective methods of wastewater treatment containing in particular heavy metals and dyes, become of great importance. Noteworthy, adsorption has proven to [...]

Sustainable e-Operation for University Campus. G.I.S Contribution

Authors: El-Ghonaimy I.
University campuses meets the different academic disciplines. Such campuses are microcosm of cities where it meets academic facilities like colleges, libraries, common areas, sports buildings, roads and services, residential multiple students, staff and faculty, and facilities of various services such as business services and water purification stations, electricity, sanitation and [...]
