Prevalence, Detection and Treatment of Hepatitis in Kurdistan Region

posted Feb 26, 2020, 3:48 AM by IT Administration   [ updated Feb 26, 2020, 5:24 AM ]


Today the World Hepatitis Alliance launches an open letter calling for immediate action to vastly improve access to life-saving drugs for viral hepatitis. Signed by over 120 organizations from 55 countries, the letter highlights that more people die each year from hepatitis B and C than from HIV/AIDS, TB or malaria and that “the single most important reason for this is that they do not have access to life-saving drugs for hepatitis B and hepatitis C “.

 

The open letter has been signed on behalf of the 400 million people worldwide living with hepatitis B and C and makes specific requests to governments and pharmaceutical companies. In particular, the letter calls on national governments to take all necessary steps to:

  • Remove stigma that prevents people coming forward for testing

  • Put in place adequate infrastructure and reduce the price of diagnostics so that they can screen at-risk populations

Strategies to Enhance Marketability of KNU Graduates

posted Feb 26, 2020, 12:45 AM by IT Administration   [ updated Feb 26, 2020, 5:23 AM ]


In the context of job hunting, “marketability of KNU graduates” refers to several things. It refers to how desirable a candidate is for employment consideration; what a candidate is worth as a prospective hire. Corporate employers want to hire academically prepared, highly motivated, and ambitious workers who offer them a good, long-term return on their investment. This workshop will motivate us to prepare our graduates to showcase their talent in the work front.

Enhancing technical skills

To market the upcoming graduates, based on the suggestion from various research articles, states that there are two prospective strategies that are internal and external. Internal perspectives are Enhancement Scientific Skills (ESS), Organisation Skill (OS), Creativity & Innovative Skill(CIS) and Research and Scholarship Skill (RSS). External Perspectives are Industrial Talks and Visits(ITV) and Invited Alumni Talks (IAT).

Solid Waste Management in the City of Erbil

posted Feb 26, 2020, 12:21 AM by IT Administration   [ updated Feb 26, 2020, 12:25 AM ]


Solid waste management is an essential service in any society. Before introducing the process, however, let's start with a discussion of the material being managed—solid waste.


Solid waste refers to the range of garbage materials—arising from animal and human activities—that are discarded as unwanted and useless. Solid waste is generated from industrial, residential, and commercial activities in a given area, and may be handled in a variety of ways. As such, landfills are typically classified as sanitary, municipal, construction and demolition, or industrial waste sites. 


Waste can be categorized based on material, such as plastic, paper, glass, metal, and organic waste. Categorization may also be based on hazard potential, including radioactive, flammable, infectious, toxic, or non-toxic wastes. Categories may also pertain to the origin of the waste, whether industrial, domestic, commercial, institutional, or construction and demolition.

IT and its impact on Education

posted Feb 17, 2020, 10:19 PM by IT Administration   [ updated Feb 17, 2020, 10:28 PM ]


The combination of education and technology has been considered the main key to human progress. Education feeds technology which in turn forms the basis of education. It is therefore evident that information technology has affected changes to the methods, purpose and perceived potential of education.
 
Information Technology and the purpose of education

While education in the past has been centered on teaching and learning, information technology has affected changes to the aims of education, therefore now education is increasingly perceived as the process of creating, preserving, integrating, transmitting and applying knowledge. The perceptions of knowledge itself have also changed whereas knowledge could once have been perceived as unchanging, it should now be perceived as “revisionary, creative, personal and pluralistic”.  The future of education is not predetermined by modern information technology, but rather that this “future will hinge prominently on how we construct (and construe) the place of technology” in the education process. We are moving from “just-in-case” education to “just-for-you” education” where education is targeted to meet the needs of individual students.

How to improve your paper citation

posted Feb 16, 2020, 11:04 PM by IT Administration   [ updated Feb 17, 2020, 10:26 PM ]


Number of times an academic paper is cited has become a major measure of its research impact. Research consumption has moved to digital online sources. Many researchers today have an online workflow from finding to publishing. Easy access online has become necessary to increase citation count for your research. A research article that is easily discovered online can affect readership, utilization and citation count of your research. Now the global trends for measuring the quality of research paper are looking for individual authors impact in terms of citations and rather than the whole Journal. However, increasing your citation count can also have a positive impact on your career because funding agencies often look at a combination of the number of papers and the number of citations when making grant decisions. Therefore it is vital to understand the Search Engine Optimization (SEO) to increase the chance for your publication to be found and indexed.

How to write a scientific paper

posted Feb 16, 2020, 10:54 PM by IT Administration   [ updated Feb 16, 2020, 10:59 PM ]


Science can be thought of as the combination of three essential things: (1) a communal collection of knowledge (both facts/data and theories); (2) a method of evaluating the efficacy of scientific theories by comparing the predictions of those theories to observation/experiment; and (3) an attitude of skeptical inquiry and the belief that all scientific knowledge is provisional and subject to revision when confronted with new evidence.

Most scientific messages are very complex. To make them more simple to understand, you have to keep your audience in mind. Graphical abstract. Figures. Scanning. Attention. Steps such as visually amplifying your messages will raise the credibility of your work.

Art of Effective Lecturing

posted Feb 4, 2020, 6:09 AM by IT Administration   [ updated Feb 4, 2020, 6:17 AM ]


Whether you are teaching for the very first time or are a seasoned veteran, prepare carefully for the initial class. Your preparation and attitude is contagious: students will pick up on your excitement, be more likely to commit to your class, and invest greater energy in the class.


You can also tell your students something about yourself that first day. If the class is small, you can have class members introduce themselves. If the class will require a lot of student interaction in discussions or projects, you might divide the students into pairs and give each pair five minutes to interview each other (be sure to indicate when the time is half over). The pairs then introduce each other to the rest of the group. This method has the advantage of not putting people on the spot to talk about themselves and yet making sure everyone already knows at least one other member of the group.

How to do Research?

posted Dec 18, 2019, 6:16 AM by IT Administration   [ updated Dec 18, 2019, 6:20 AM ]


Selecting a topic can be the most challenging part of a research assignment. Since this is the very first step in writing a paper, it is vital that it be done correctly. Once you have identified your topic, it may help to state it as a question. For example, if you are interested in finding out about the epidemic of obesity in the Kurdish population, you might pose the question "What are the causes of obesity in Kurdistan Region?" By posing your subject as a question you can more easily identify the main concepts or keywords to be used in your research.

Student-Centred Learning

posted Dec 18, 2019, 6:00 AM by IT Administration   [ updated Dec 18, 2019, 6:17 AM ]


Student-centred learning (SCL) has become a popular approach to reform the education process. The SCL is an approach to education, which aims at overcoming some of the problems inherent to more traditional forms of education by focusing on the learner and their needs, rather than being centred around the teacher's input.  This approach has many implications for the design and flexibility of curriculum, course content, and interactivity of the learning process and is being increasingly used at universities across Europe.
