ABSTRACT

The COVID-19 pandemic forced the move from a traditional face-to-face classroom to a remote learning model. The success of the remote learning model is contingent upon several factors including appropriate learning materials. Instructors who were entrenched in the face-to-face teaching method had to make rapid adjustments to deliver learning materials and to engage students remotely. In contrast, instructors who had been using techniques to prepare students virtually before class time meeting were better positioned to pivot to the remote learning approach. The techniques and the materials developed by faculty from mathematics and aerospace engineering at an HBCU for effectively engaging students which include virtual pre-class preparation were adapted for the remote learning method during this pandemic. These techniques and materials were made available to faculty to assist their move from face-to-face to remote learning. The approach is shared in this paper. Math and aerospace engineering students' satisfaction with the approach was measured and the results are also included in this paper. © American Society for Engineering Education, 2021

ABSTRACT

Background : Thromboembolism is characterized by aberrant activation of coagulation pathways often results in thrombus or clot formation in the large blood vessels followed by dislodgement from the primary site of formation into the distal site. Thromboembolism is of two types;1. arterial thromboembolism (ATE) and 2. venous thromboembolism (VTE). Direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) are the greatest innovation in the field of anticoagulation therapy. It has several advantages when compared to traditional vitamin antagonists (VKA). COVID Patients are at greater risk of thromboembolic complications. So, Direct oral anticoagulants such as Rivaroxaban and Apixaban are the two choices for clinicians firstly because it has greater advantages over Vitamin K antagonists (VKA) as they have broader therapeutic window and secondly because they don ' t require monitoring hence there is less patients visits for blood sample withdrawal thus minimizing the spread of infection. Aims : The aim of our study was to decipher the underlying molecular mechanisms in venous thromboembolism (VTE) and establishing the connection of certain miRNAs and treatment with DOACs. To overcome the potential bleeding episodes in patients who are prone to bleeding epistaxis and intracranial hemorrhages (ICH). Methods : We obtained a raw datasets of Differentially expressed genes (DEG 's) from NCBI in patients with who are diagnosed with Venous Thromboembolisms (VTE) which were then further subjected to statistical analysis based on p-value and Log fold changes. Results : The table 1 shows the molecular docking results of pglycoprotein and the anticoagulant Rivaroxaban(Anti-Xa). Conclusions : Metabolism of the dug in the human body is a complex mechanism that are govern by several mechanisms including dietary intake & concomitant administration of drugs. There are number of enzymes involved in the biotransformation of a drug into active compounds capable of exerting therapeutic responses.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To examine the correlation between loneliness, sleep disturbances, resilience and mental health problems such as depression, anxiety and stress among young adults during COVID-19 pandemic. Methodology: This cross-sectional study was conducted on 500 young adults with age 18-40 years from Islamabad/Rawalpindi region, Pakistan. We used UCLA-Loneliness Scale, PROMIS-Sleep Disturbance Scale, the Ego Resiliency scale and DASS-21. Data were analyzed using SPSS version 20. Results: There was positive correlation between loneliness, sleep disturbance, mental health problems and a negative correlation with resilience. Resilience played a moderating role between loneliness and mental health problems and between sleep disturbances and mental health problems. Conclusion: During the times of the COVID-19 pandemic, loneliness, sleep disturbances effect on mental health problems, and the positively correlate and they correlate negatively with resilience.

ABSTRACT

Aim: To examine the prevalence of psychological distress during COVID-19, social distancing and risk factor for PTSD among general population of Pakistan. Methodology: The sample was drawn from Pakistani population having access to internet, age 18 years and above, through convenient sampling. Online survey method was used for the information assortment and the scales were Depression Anxiety Stress Scale (DASS 21) and Impact of Event Scale (IES). Descriptive Statistics, Frequency, Percentages, Correlation and t-Test analysis were used for data analysis. Results: Results showed that women scored high on depression, anxiety, and stress scale as compared to males. Results also highlighted elevated level of anxiety in grownups and working individuals while elderly population resulted in more significant levels of stress than other subsequent groups. Another finding of the study was high level of depression among university students and individuals with already compromised quality of psychological health are prone to various psychological disturbances particularly conditions like PTSD due to other mental conditions.

ABSTRACT

A new inclusion called total inclusion relation has improved the existing dissimilarity measure for q-rung orthopair fuzzy sets (qROFSs). For qROFSs, the modified axiomatic definition of dissimilarity measure is proposed. The modified Hamming and Euclidean dissimilarity measures are defined. An algorithmic procedure for a robust VIKOR method based on modified dissimilarity measures is established. The application of the robust VIKOR method in Mass Vaccination Campaigns (MVCs) in the COVID-19 situation is given.
