Combinational Therapy in Triple Negative Breast Cancer

release date: May 12, 2022
Combinational Therapy in Triple Negative Breast Cancer
Combinational Therapy in Triple Negative Breast Cancer discusses TNBC at the molecular level with a holistic approach, focusing on combinational strategies targeting various pathways involved in this specific cancer type. Using a monotherapy for the treatment of cancer, especially high-grade tumors like TNBC, is mostly worthless due to the inherent genetic instability of tumor cells to develop intrinsic and acquired resistance; combination therapy presents more, or at least the same, effectiveness with lower doses of every single agent and decreases the likelihood of chemoresistance, making essential to understand more about multiple therapies options. The book is a valuable resource for cancer researchers, oncologists, graduate students, and members of biomedical field who are interested in the potential of combinational therapies to treat triple negative breast cancer. Presents up to date and cutting-edge knowledge of Triple negative breast cancer (TNBC) biology, clinical aspects, and treatment options Discusses novel targets and pathways involved in TNBC Provides insights and approaches for future research on TNBC

Ghazals

release date: Feb 15, 2022
Ghazals
The prolific Mir Taqi Mir (1723–1810), widely regarded as the most accomplished poet in Urdu, composed his ghazals—a poetic form of rhyming couplets—in a distinctive Indian style arising from the Persian ghazal tradition. Here, the lover and beloved live in a world of extremes: the outsider is the hero, prosperity is poverty, and death would be preferable to the indifference of the beloved. Ghazals offers a comprehensive collection of Mir’s finest work, translated by a renowned expert on Urdu poetry.

Journeys Toward Gender Equality in Islam

Journeys Toward Gender Equality in Islam
If justice is an intrinsic value in Islam, why have women been treated as second-class citizens in Islamic legal tradition? Today, the idea of gender equality, inherent to contemporary conceptions of justice, presents a challenge to established, patriarchal interpretations of Shari‘a. In thought-provoking discussions with six influential Muslim intellectuals – Abdullahi An-Na’im, Amina Wadud, Asma Lamrabet, Khaled Abou El Fadl, Mohsen Kadivar and Sedigheh Vasmaghi – Ziba Mir-Hosseini explores how egalitarian gender laws might be constructed from within the Islamic legal framework.

Enlightenment
My percept in writing a book concerning the humane, spiritual and worldly quest of man echoes in the concerns, anxieties and the aspirations of the Muslim Ummah, which is pandemonium owing to the chaotic and disoriented state Muslim Ummah in all the spheres of life. The primary object in writing these pages was to occupy myself with a definite task, so necessary in the long solitudes of this mortal life and also to review the past events of the Muslim / history with which I am acquainted and to enable myself to think clearly about the whole scenario. I began the task in a mood of self-questioning and to a large extent this persisted throughout

The Lost Fragrance of Infinity

The Lost Fragrance of Infinity
In 1739, Qaraar Ali, a young craftsman from Delhi witnesses the destruction of his world as he has known it. His wondrous city where he found love, spirituality, the friendship of poets and philosophers becomes a desolate, scorching hell. From the embers of his past, a journey begins; one which takes him into the depths of Sufi philosophy. Traversing spectacular landscapes of a fading Mughal Empire, a turbulent Central Asia and Persia, a culturally retreating Ottoman Empire and declining Spanish influence, Qaraar Ali finds hope in the sacred geometry of the Sufis through which he attempts at rebuilding his life and rediscovering love. A deeply passionate love story imbued with spirituality, acceptance, compassion and redemption, The Lost Fragrance of Infinity gives a much-deserved voice to Sufism and its contributions to humanity, art, mathematics, mysticism and science.

An Energy Efficient and Dynamic Security Protocol for Wireless Sensor Networks

An Energy Efficient and Dynamic Security Protocol for Wireless Sensor Networks
Master''s Thesis from the year 2013 in the subject Computer Science - Internet, New Technologies, grade: 8.12, , course: M. Tech, language: English, abstract: Wireless sensor network (WSN) is an emerging imperious leading technology of the current century that presents great promise for various pioneering applications. The use of sensor networks should keep developing, mainly in the fields of scientific, logistic, healthcare and military applications. Sensor networks interact and collect sensitive data and operate in unattended hostile environments, thus it is imperative to pay attention to the security of wireless sensor networks as they are highly prone to threats. For successful operation of the nodes, it is important to maintain the security and privacy of the transmitted data as well as the data stored at nodes. The different security protocols and models used in the wired and other wireless networks such as ad-hoc networks cannot be used in WSNs because the sensor size poses significant restrictions, mainly in terms of energy autonomy and node lifetime, as the batteries have to be too tiny. Also, the existing security protocols in these constrained networks are not sufficiently energy efficient, which is the real motivation behind this work. In this thesis, a light-weight dynamic security algorithm titled “An Energy Efficient and Dynamic Security Protocol (EEDSP)” for wireless sensor networks has been proposed and implemented at nodal level. We also implement an existing algorithm and then carry out the performance analysis of both the algorithms in terms of energy consumptions, node lifetime and memory requirements at source and intermediate nodes to verify the improvement in our protocol’s results.

Philosophy and Management Studies

release date: Jun 25, 2021
Philosophy and Management Studies
Irrespective of whether one thinks of philosophy explicitly, each organizational researcher is a philosopher. A philosophical position is predicated on a variety of approaches relating to ontology, epistemology, methodology, ethics, and political positions. Depending on where one stands with regard to these philosophical building blocks, their orientation may be characterized as positivist, realist, critical-realist, and constructivist, with pragmatist and political considerations weighing in as well. Also, management theories all inhabit the same spectrum of philosophical positions that enrich them and add to their relevance to the world of firms and organizations. This book provides a broad-based commentary on the terrain of philosophy as it pertains to management studies, especially for the relatively unfamiliar organizational theorist. This book serves as a succinct overview of the field of management philosophy as well as a roadmap for those readers who wish to explore the terrain further. The book argues that all knowledge inquiry invokes philosophy and philosophical thinking, and that the artificial separation between philosophy and social science is fallacious. Just as philosophy is everywhere, so is power, and for better or worse they go hand in hand. Hence, philosophical positions are political positions. The authors do not shy from addressing the politics of their own research practice or the subjects of their inquiry. Philosophy and Management Studies targets a new generation of management researchers, whose interest in philosophy vastly exceeds their resources to engage with it, partly because of their unfamiliarity with its often mystifying and outsider-unfriendly conventions. It seeks to bridge the chasm between interest in philosophy in organizational studies and knowledge about it. It is not for the trained philosopher or the expert, but for a relative newcomer.

Students Quality Circles
Students Quality Circles or SQCs in short, are basically miniature level activities of what the Japanese Quality Control Circles (QCCs) are in the corporate world. These activities prepare students for the Quality mindset from the very early age, thus engraving their per-sonalities with Quality. SQC is an innovative concept and practice used as a part of schools'' or colleges'' co-curricular activities since mid-nineties in many countries of Asian sub-continent. The objective of SQCs program is to develop and prepare students for the corporate world as well as for a quality living in the society. A research study was carried out by the authors in schools in 2020 where SQCs were practiced to find out the effectiveness of this program. The objective of this book is to explain the SQC concept, benefits and its application in schools with the help of findings of a national survey. The book explains the origin of this concept and the differences in the practices of QCCs in the corporate world versus SQCs in the schools. It discusses how effectively students are practicing SQCs and how effectively they are implemented and managed by schools and colleges. Critical success and failure factors of this program are identified and highlighted. The book provides practical guidelines to educationists and management of schools, colleges and universities who want to initiate or improve their existing program. The book identifies the strength of this unique and innovative program in building a society towards world-class quality. The authors strongly recommend this non-traditional but powerful program to be implemented in schools, colleges and universities in all countries. It is hoped that this book will benefit educational institutions in different countries to further improve Quality mindset in their societies through this program.

The Plague Upon Us

The Plague Upon Us
‘In times like these, truth is perhaps the only justice we can have, the only vengeance we can wreak.’ Blood drips from the pellet-stricken eyes of young Kashmiri men as Oubaid watches insurgency and violence rip through the streets of his homeland. A voice in his head tells him he knows who brought this plague upon them. But acknowledging it would mean that he must relive the horrors that have been inflicted on those he loves... Yet the voice will not leave Oubaid alone, and as he reluctantly confronts his past, there emerge four echoes of a story, narrated by four childhood friends – a youth caught in conflict, the daughter of a social climber, the son of a moneyed landlord and a militant. As their tales diverge and coalesce, they unravel a truth that is not always the sum of its parts – one that reveals the full tragedy of a people buffeted by circumstance and desperately seeking salvation. A taut, searing reflection of our times, The Plague upon Us announces the arrival of an arresting new voice in contemporary fiction.
