IMPROVEMENT OF THE RELIABILITY OF THE GENERATOR COOLING SYSTEM BY MODELING THE FAILURE PATTERN USING STATISTICAL ANALYSIS AND MINITAB: CASE STUDY NORTH BENGHAZI POWER PLANT
ABSTRACT:
Generator cooling system in North Benghazi power plant considered one of the most important auxiliary systems like all the power plant in the word, using force convection method to cooling the generator means we need parts like motors, fans and pumps. This component and else in the system have to monitor and maintenance continually. Improvement the reliability of this system inverts positively on the power plant by decreases unexpected showdown and maintenance cost. The failure distribution pattern and the mechanical sign of failure such as noise vibration and temperature by expect failure time by study statistically the five years history have been studied in this investigation. It was observed that the normal distribution is fit failures pattern and the mechanical problems especially in the belt behind the most failure reasons of this system gave high noise as clear sign of failure start.

Validity of research instruments was tested using content, construct and face validity. The data obtained was analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics. The study found out that the adoption rates of dairy technologies like Artificial Insemination (AI), internet and e-dairy, silage making techniques, daily milk yield recording devices, milk conductivity indicators, automatic temperature recording devices and lactometers, hay making techniques, bloodless castration and hot iron dehorning among farmers in Bungoma County was low. Among the factors that negatively affected their adoption included years of experience, gender, age, farm size, cost of veterinary services, and type of dairy breeds. The study recommended designing of policies and programs like farm advisory programs that will enhance dairy production, thus transforming dairy value chain for food security and sustainable development in Bungoma County.

OIL AND GREASE CONTAMINATION OF EUPHRATES RIVER
ABSTRACT:
The environmental impact of most releases of petroleum wastes would be minimal if the wastes remained at their points of release. However, wastes can migrate away from a release point by a number of pathways. The present study was conducted on Al Manatherah river in Al Manatherah city in the aim of studying the contamination levels of oil and grease, with some water quality parameters (NO3, pH, T.U., Cl,) and selected climatic parameters (precipitated dust particles, temperature, dust storm, and rain) were depended. Samples of raw water were collected and analyzed from Al Manatherah river station during a period of fifteen months, starting from October 2010 to December 2011. The purpose is to assess the level of parameters measured and their effects on the river. Statistical analysis used to describe the relations between oil and grease and the other parameters and a regression analysis was performed by "Data Fit" program version 8.0 Software. This study showed that discharging domestic sewage and industrial waste water from adjacent areas, caused oil and grease contamination of levels more than Iraqi standard limits in 64 times .The highest values of oil and grease recorded in heavy rainy months impacted by runoff from land, the second highest values of oil and grease occurred in May. Finally, oil and grease levels, also increased according to precipitated dust particles, and dust storm which will lead to use more amounts of oil and grease due to different activities, followed by discharging of polluted waters to sewers or into river directly.

E-Governance plays a crucial role in higher education system of Uttarakhand: A prospective overview to this aspect.
ABSTRACT:
This research paper aims at finding out that whether electronic governance(e-governance) has played a crucial role in the enhancement and development of higher education system of Uttarakhand and to what extent the results have been achieved and what further steps to be taken to achieve the goal in this respect. Though Uttarakhand has having completed more than 9 years as a separate state, is now poised to embark on a new era of rapid development and inclusive growth in the higher education system. A good higher education system is required for overall development in Uttarakhand. A remarkable growth in the higher education sector had made the administration of higher education institutions intricate, but has declined in its level somewhat over the past one decade due to remarkable increase in the number of colleges and universities and their privatization. Therefore use of Electronic governance and Information and Communication technologies helps to reduce the intricacy and enhance the overall administration of higher education. E-Governance is understood as a set of activities involving the effective contribution of information and communication technology (ICT) for administration and management in higher education system in Uttarakhand. Education system requires various needs that include computerization and management of processes i.e. registration, admission, student information, classes, time table, transport, attendance, library, salary and expenses, examinations, performance, grades, hostels, security and reports. In this study, an attempt has been made to discuss the concept of E-Governance and use of latest application in higher education sector. Thus, with the help e-governance higher education system of Uttarakhand will definitely boom in flying colors and would lead to a new direction to the make in Uttarakhand.
