Abstract: The world is today than ever before fixated on the subject of development, which is taken as a Change process necessitating modifications in the societies of developing and developed nations. Consequently, the purpose of this research was to examine the role of military diplomacy in the advancement of foreign policy aspirations in Africa using Kenya-South Africa relations as a case study, with a particular emphasis on challenges and prospects. The study employed Institutional theory, which can be traced back to foundational articles discussing how organizational founding and change were influenced less by functional considerations and more by symbolic actions and external influences. International Relations (IR) practitioners, government agencies, diplomats, Kenya Defence Forces, National Intelligence Service, academia, media, journalists, envoys, and other specialists comprised the target audience. The primary data was collected via an open-ended and closed-ended questionnaire, whereas the secondary data was gathered via articles, journals, periodicals, and books. According to this study, the contribution of the military varies from state to state and over time based on a variety of factors.

Abstract: Premenstrual syndrome (PMS), which begins 7-14 days before the onset of menstruation and declines with the onset of menstrual flow, affects women during their reproductive years and is connected with physical, psychological, and behavioral abnormalities. Premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD) is a severe type of premenstrual syndrome that generally becomes problematic during late adolescence and can damage their quality of life. The non-pharmacological method is indicated to lessen the intensity of the symptoms early on without producing adverse effects. Although the origin of PMS is unknown, training women to exercise self-care methods to lessen the intensity of symptoms is a significant focus in therapy, in addition to pharmacological medication.

Abstract: Implementation of Kenya vision 2030 is ongoing having been launched on 10 June 2008. The regional security situation however remains a major concern and the ability of the internal security apparatus to decisively deal with such threats is limited. The Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) being a key enabler must therefore play a key role in support of the implementation and realization of the vision. However, previous empirical studies have failed to effectively establish the role of KDF in achievement of Kenya Vision 2030.This therefore calls for policy makers to make policy intervention that would lead to strengthening of KDF role in implementation of Kenya’s Vision 2030 projects. The objective was to examine the role of KDF as an enabler to the achievement of Vision 2030.

Abstract: Ovarian tumours are more frequently seen in adults, although they are quite uncommon in youngsters. The majority of ovarian masses seen during the premenstrual or infancy phases are benign functioning cysts, which are non- cancerous tumours. Ovarian mass symptoms and clinical indications are typically non-specific. Thus, it might be challenging to get the right diagnosis before surgery, and early care may be required to preserve the patients life and fertility. 8–10% of all ovarian cancers are epithelial tumours, which are histologically categorised as mucinous or serous. Cystadenoma, of which 75% are serous and 25% are mucinous, is the most frequent benign ovarian tumour. On the surface, mucin-filled tumours are distinguished by cysts of various sizes that have not invaded the surrounding tissue. Before being found, they might grow to a large size, although this does not always mean they are cancerous.

Abstract: Detecting and tracking an infrared (IR) aerial target in the event of infrared jamming is still challenging. In this paper, singular value decomposition (SVD) based algorithms are proposed for the detection and tracking of aerial targets in the presence of decoy flares. Features including brightness intensity, dominant orientation and complexity were used for the discrimination against decoy flares. SVD characteristics including oriented energy analysis, image energy truncation, and low rank approximation were used to measure these features.

Abstract: Childbirth is a miraculous and complex process, during which a womans body undergoes significant changes to bring a new life into the world. While vaginal delivery is the preferred mode of childbirth, certain complications can arise, posing risks to both the mother and the baby. One such complication is uterine rupture, which refers to the tearing of the uterine wall during pregnancy or labor. In cases of uterine rupture, the subsequent delivery presents a unique set of challenges and requires careful management. This article explores the topic of vaginal delivery following uterine rupture, delving into the causes, diagnosis, management, and outcomes of this complex obstetric scenario.

Abstract: Menopause is one of the most significant events in women’s life and brings in a number of physiological changes that affect the life of a woman permanently. Menopause is the permanent cessation of menstruation resulting in the loss of ovarian follicle development. The age at menopause appears to be genetically determined and is unaffected by race, socioeconomic status, age at menarche or number of prior ovulations. Factors that are toxic to ovary often result in earlier age of menopause; for e.g, women who smoke experience an earlier menopause, women who have had surgery on their ovaries, or have had a hysterectomy, despite retention of their ovaries, may also experience early menopause.

Abstract: Liquidity of a manufacturing firm means a lot for it provides a cushion that would enable the company to survive a period of low earnings during which the company might be unable to access capital. Studies, both theoretical and empirical, demonstrate that a firm's financial structure affects the firm's liquidity. However, as a corporation liquidity desires are mainly impacted through the character of its operations, a corporation liquidity call for will range relying on its unique circumstances. Specifically, the look at was looking to; discover the impact of brief time period debt, long time debt capital and equity capital on liquidity of manufacturing corporations indexed in Nairobi Security Exchange, Kenya.The usage of corporation size forms the moderating factor/ variable.

Abstract: Functionally graded materials (FGMs) are categorized as functional composites, where the volume fractions of two or more materials change continuously based on position along specific dimensions (mainly through-the -thickness) of the structure to achieve desired functionality. A typical example of FGM is an inhomogeneous composite consisting of distinct phases of material constituents (e.g., ceramics and metals for thermal barrier structures), featuring a strong bending-stretching coupling effect. The overall properties of FGMs are unique and distinguishable from the individual materials comprising them. Mechanical properties exhibit continuous variation across the plate thickness. Variations in constituent volume fractions lead to diverse microstructures. The effective properties of FGM plates are assumed to change along the thickness direction, following power law, sigmoid, and exponential distributions. FGMs are created by altering chemical composition, microstructure, or design features from one end to the other as required. They exhibit high-temperature resistance, efficiently mitigating thermal stresses and moisture impacts. The variation in volume fraction throughout the thickness is computed using different homogenization techniques, namely the rule of mixtures, Mori-Tanaka scheme, and self-consistent method. Several micromechanical models have been developed and utilized to estimate effective properties of these materials in relation to volume fraction distributions. The manipulated variable concerns the concentration of reinforcing particles at various points within the component. This study delves into various methods and theories for modeling and analyzing functionally graded materials, offering a comprehensive exploration of their features. The outcomes and new findings of this analysis are presented.

Abstract: A variable lumped-distributed branch line coupler with three selected coupling levels is designed and proposed in this paper. This variable coupler combines three separate couplers. Each coupler has its own coupling level and bandwidth. The first coupler is a distributed, and the second and third couplers are lumped-distributed. A comparison between simulated and practical results is covered in this study. Minor and ignorable differences between the simulated and practical results are found, so this coupler closely aligns with the theoretical results. Moreover, 3D designs and fabrications are executed and included in this paper. Circuit designs and their simulations are implemented using the Advance Design System (ADS) software.

Abstract: The risk of venous thromboembolism (VTE) during pregnancy is 4- to 5 times higher than it is in the non- pregnant condition. [1, 2] Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism are the two signs of VTE (PE). While most publications claim that VTE can happen at any stage of pregnancy, research indicates that the first half of pregnancy is when it happens most frequently. Complications including pulmonary hypertension, post-thrombotic syndrome, and venous insufficiency are examples of DVT and PE sequelae.

Abstract: Unsafe abortion refers to an abortion that is unclean or unhealthy, conducted by an incompetent or untrained birth attendant using improper procedures. According to the World Health Organization (WHO) (2011), an unsafe abortion is the termination of an unplanned pregnancy by incompetent personnel or in an atmosphere devoid of minimal medical standards, or both. [1] Many social, physical, and biological factors contribute to unsafe abortions and their related problems. A botched abortion may result in life-threatening consequences.

Abstract: Election of leaders by the people is the aim of democratic procedures. An electoral system is designed to make sure that the results are uncontested in any way and that they reflect the choices of the majority of voters, giving elected officials legitimacy. This study objective was to assess the nation electoral process. Consociationalism, voting, and rational choice theories served as the foundation for this investigation. The researcher adopted a descriptive study design and employed both qualitative and quantitative techniques. The research was carried out from July 2022 to December 2022. Political parties, political analysts, IEBC members, legislators, and voters made up the study target population. The researcher employed the stratified random sampling technique. The strata were created by the target demographic, and a random sample was drawn from each stratum. The researcher used interview guide techniques to collect data, using items that were developed from the study objectives and research questions. Questionnaires and interviews were the two main ways that data were gathered. Voters were handed questionnaires, and interview guidelines were provided for political experts, electoral experts, and IEBC officials. The information gathered through the use of questionnaires was analyzed using descriptive statistics. According to the results, Kenya electoral system is based on the plurality/majority system known as the First Past the Post concept. It is based on the Kenyan Constitution of 2010 and includes a wide range of actors, each of whom has a specific duty outlined in the Constitution. The IEBC is a key player among these parties. The report recommends, among other things, looking at alternative choices including mixed member and proportional representation models since they are more inclusive and produce fair representation as a remedy for the existing polarizing plurality voting system.

Abstract: This research sought to determine how capital structure affected the financial performance of Kenyan listed energy and petroleum industry firms. The study main objectives were to determine how debt financing affected the financial performance of listed energy and petroleum sector companies in Kenya and how equity financing affected financial performance of listed energy and petroleum sector firms in Kenya. The theories that served as a guide for the study were: Pecking order theory and trade-off theory. This study adopted a correlational research design while dealing with the research objectives. A census method was adopted for purposes of analyzing the audited financial statements that were downloaded from the firm websites in arriving at detailed and well informed conclusions by employing Multiple regression, Correlation and Analysis of Variances techniques using the Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) software version 26 to establish the existence (or lack of it) of the study link between the dependent and independent variables. The study conclusions showed that the independent variables had a statistically significant effect on the financial performance of Kenyan listed energy and petroleum companies. The model correctly predicted the association between the variables based as depicted by the F-test. Recommendations on the variables were made for management consideration for future decision making where the study majorly recommended that the firms should use more internal equity to grow profitability as it does not involve costs of acquisition compared with external equity and debt finance and that in cases where external financing is required, management should base decisions on the finance option with the lowest investment risk and proportional costs.
