    This paper highlights the importance of Mechanical Engineers in providing mechanical services to the building sector, focused on the supply of hot and cold water to a high-rise building, made of a 24-storey building with 48 flats, each floor having three (3) bedrooms of two (2) flats. The building was divided to three zones of which each zone contains eight floors. The water requirement for the entire building per day was estimated to be 64541.3litres and hence the discharge at each zones were obtained to be 0.00398 m3/s. the mechanical zone station water power was considered to be of PVC materials whereas that of hot water was copper materials. Hot water usage and heating by electricity is expensive due to payment of bills so if the gas heating could be properly developed this could be of help to the building sector and the country at large.

    A survey was carried out to assess consumer attitude to rabbit meat consumption and problems associated with it. A Multistage sampling was used to obtain information from 200 respondents. Data were obtained using a semi structured questionnaire. Respondents indicated a liking for rabbit meat believing that it is healthy and tastes good. Unavailability was cited as the most important factor hindering rabbit meat consumption. Respondents liked rabbit meat and declared it palatable, yet they do not prefer it to other meat types probably because of their familiarity with other meat types which are readily available in the market and stores than rabbit meat. Rabbit meat may possibly be preferred if it were to be made readily available like other meat types. Cut up portions of rabbit carcass is preferred to whole. Greater proportions (41.81%) of the respondents prefer rabbit meat fried but only 0.43% want it processed into meat floss. Ready to eat products should be made available in stores and market places.

    Keywords - Attitude, Rabbit meat, Availability, Consumption.

    The study of anthropogenic contamination by heavy metals in road traffic is very necessary for planning and environmental monitoring in urban areas. In this study, 19 road dust samples were collected at Attinguie tollbooth in Abidjan. The concentrations of metals Cu, Zn, Pb, Cd, Cr and Ni were determined using atomic absorption spectrometer and the human health risk was assessed. The results show that the average concentrations of Cu, Zn, Pb, Cd, Cr and Ni in the dust samples are 432.58, 85.39, 191.71, 3.10, 105.82 and 151.24 mg/kg, respectively were higher than their value in the continental crust data. The assessment of health risk indicated that there were mainly three exposure pathways for people: ingestion, dermal contact and inhalation. The main exposure pathway of heavy metals to both children and adults is ingestion. The values of HQ and HI are lower than the safe level (=1), indicating no health risk exists in this study.

    The problem of diffusion of thermal energy and of chemical species in presence of homogeneous chemical reaction of first order of free convection flow of electrically conducting viscoelastic second order Rivlin- Erickson fluid which is an optically thin gray gas past an oscillating tilted plate in porous medium is investigated. The heat due to viscous and magnetic dissipation is taken into consideration under temperature gradient heat sources in the case of variable plate temperature and mass diffusion. Non-linear partial differential equations emerged from the modeling have being made dimensionless, using suitable nondimensional variables; and then solved by employing the symbolic computational software MAPLE. The resulting numerical solutions concerned with velocity, temperature and concentration for different values of the governing parameters are illustrated graphically and discussed quantitatively.

    Onion (Allium cepa L.) is one of the most important vegetable in Turkey, and often cultivated in arid and semiarid regions with salinity problems. In the first year, three onion varieties were evaluated at various levels of salinity to identify susceptibility and tolerance levels. At the end of the experiment, "Akgun" determined more tolerant than the other varieties. At 9.6 dSm-1 condition, the survived individuals of this variety were selected as "candidate line". Selected individuals were grown to maturity and self-pollinated to produce next generations. In the third year of the study, the plants have been grown in vermiculite by substrate culture technique. The early plant stage at the 250 mM NaCl was used for the second selection studies.

    Keywords - Allium, Salinity, Selection, Variation.

    Anomaly in other word outlier detection is an invaluable technique to assess anypattern that is unconventional or unexpected with respect to other observation or event that. This approach is now being widely used in the detection of undesirable events such as network intrusions, bank fraud, and medical problems, errors in text or data and natural calamities. This paper particularly describes some anomaly detection algorithm to detect anomalous behavior in historical river water data collected from an Australian Database. The main feature we have concentrated on is the level of water level measured on daily basis from 1974 to till now. Maximum observations exhibit normal responses but there are also be very few observations of level acting anomalously within this dataset........

    Balinese architecture in its construction process uses a written guideline called Asta Kosala Kosali, which is in the form of an ancient manuscript shaped lontar. It is not known when the script of Asta Kosala Kosali was written, which is clear until now this manuscript is still used as a guideline for building traditional Balinese construction. One that is regulated in this text is the procedure for determining sikut (measurement or dimensions). Where in every determination of the sikut, especially in wood material, always followed by giving a pengurip. This means the pengurip has an important position in determining sikut in the process of construction Balinese architecture. Therefore this study was conducted to find out the meaning and function of pengurip on Balinese architecture explored from the Asta Kosala Kosali script.......

    As the rapidly growth of wind farms in North China power grid, the wind speed prediction becomes more important for the dispatching center. The peak regulation and wind power consumption need better wind forecasting accuracy. In this paper a wind speed forecasting method based on interpolation is proposed. With the training data, support vector machines(SVM) prediction model is build, however, the prediction accuracy is decided by training data size. Thus, the polynomial interpolation is involved to increase the training data. Based on the real data of North China power grid, the simulation shows that this method can provide better prediction accuracy especially when the wind speed changes abruptly. This paper presents the reserve capacity price for the new energy power price which can reflect the effect of new energy power fluctuation on the real time reserve capacity.

    Keywords - wind speed prediction, peak regulation, training data, support vector machines, reserve capacity price.
