Discussions in the higher education arena do not only surround planning, but also include planning to plan, and using results to inform decisions. While strategic planning is often at the forefront of these dialogues, academic planning usually lies at the core and impacts other planning efforts. Planning for academic programming is complex and impacts budgeting and resource allocations as well as other related plans such as the strategic plan, information technology plan, library plan, and...
There are totally four locations that we can be chose, one located at northwest, one at centre, one at north east and one at centre. Finally, the centre one is being chosen. At that location, six turbines are going to place, with 3903.6m2 swept areas per turbine, and the total power out put in M/W is 9 MW, generating capacity is 3.09 (assume availability factor is 0.98 and capacity factor = 0.35). Since the turbines are going to place in regular shape, areal extent should be considered, it...
Water security simply means availability of water and secure rights to use potable water for the present and future generations. Water security has been recognised as being important enough to be enshrined in UN Human Rights Resolutions and is now a cornerstone of the UN's Millennium Development Goals [] . The concept of water security includes regional and global availability of water, environment issues, access issues and water stress. Water insecurity is all pervasive in the South...
Kathmandu, the capital city of Nepal is overcrowded .Large influx of people, migrating to city can be seen, everyday. Reason might be different, but all want to settle there, causing pressure on the valley's already weakened infrastructure and to meet their demand the haphazardly built city is even expanding in the same way, indicating towards the much chaotic situation in future. Settlements built without proper access of transportation is one of the obstacles in waste collection. Waste can be...
Although availability of water has been a serious constraint, there are other factors also, which are hampering the growth and development of the sector. Some of the factors are: low productivity of crops, inefficient use of water, degradation of land resources (water logging and salinity), imbalance application of fertilizer, inefficient use of agricultural inputs, ineffective transfer of technology to the farmers, lack of coordination between research and extension, post-harvest losses,...
Motta (1992) argued Environmental policy and role in the whole world environmental conference because the country is still coping with the priorities and mechanisms can be used to initiate these policies. Horowitz (1999) says one way of measure how global warming will affect an economy is to look at the economic operation of countries that are warmer because colonial death and mean temperature are highly coordinate; the mortality-income relationship also manifests itself as an...
Throughout the ages, the earth has lived happily and peacefully from any damages concerning the Ozone layer. Not so long ago, the earth experienced a dangerous/huge change not only in weather, but also in health risks concerning human beings and animal alike. Pollution, coil burning, cars causing too much smoke and many other things caused a change in our CO2 level that made a hole in our ozone layer. The ozone layer somehow controls a bit of our weather and makes planet Earth safer. This whole...
The oceans cover a little more than 70 percent of the earth surface. This makes it the worlds largest solar energy collector and energy storage system. On an average day, 60 million square kilometers if tropical seas absorb and amount of solar radiation equal in heat content to about 250 million barrels of oil. The history of mankind, have depended upon its ability to conquer the forces of nature, and to utilize these forces to serve its needs. Energy technology is certainly one of the most...
The objective of this study was the assessment of reduction of chemical oxygen demand of wastewater from textile industrial plant by using activated carbon prepared from locally available coal. Activated carbons were prepared by thermal activation at 700 0C and chemical activation with phosphoric acid (H3PO4) at 500 0C. The complete study was done in batch mode to investigate the effect of operating parameters. The result of COD concentration reduction with thermally activated carbon (TAC) and...
The following are the likely Operational issues that might arise between the Operator and Contractor in Drilling Operation in Falkland. It is important to note that the drilling issues are dependent on each other, as there could not be a legal or operational problem that will not affect the commerciality. This includes; (a)Maintenance standards for contractor's equipment, the operator wants the contractors to assure him for example that the mud pump will not fail while the bit is on bottom at...
