From the standpoint of environmental protection and effective utilization of water resources, reuse of carwash water is an important issue around the world. In this cross-sectional descriptive study, the source of water and its consumption rate in carwashes of Kermanshah metro-city were determined. In this manner by referring to the related guild, list of all active carwashes in Kermanshah city were collected, the city is divided into three regions and randomly 16 units in each region were selected for further investigation. Totally 48 carwash were surveyed and parameters like source of water, water consumption per car, type of used detergent, existence and type of wastewater treatment system were determined. The results showed that the well water (ground water) with 77.1% was the main source of water in the surveyed carwashes followed by treated tap water with 22.9%. 91.7% of the carwashes equipped with bar-screen and only in 35.4% of studied carwashes the grit removal unit was seen. All the carwashes discharged the wastewater to the municipal sewerage system without further treatment.

Depression is one of the most common psychiatric diseases that are not limited to a specific time and place and impact all groups in the society. Aim of this study explores the relationship between depression and academic self-efficacy, and achievement among college student in Kermanshah University of medical sciences. This cross-sectional study was conducted among 373 students, in the west of Iran. Samples classified with the appropriate assignment done and gathering information from standard questionnaires (Beck Depression Inventory Test & Academic Selfefficacy Scale). The data were analyzed by the SPSS-21 using t-test and logistic regression statistical tests at 95% significant level. Based on beck depression inventory, 73.5%, 13.4%, 9.8%, and 3.3% of the respondents were normal, mild depression, moderate depression, and severe depression, respectively. Logistic regression showed; higher than 25 year and female students were the most influential predictors for depression. Academic achievement was significant correlation with academic self-efficacy (r=0.216), inversely and significantly associated with the depression (r=-0.469). Finally, academic self-efficacy, and depression were accounted for 24% of the variation in academic achievement (Adjusted R squared=0.24, F=49.270 & P<0.001). Considering the results of the present study, it seems that depression has a negative role in the academic self-efficacy and achievement.

Due to increasing in world population and water shortage, wastewater is considered as one of the main important of water sources. Beside it is needed that the wastes to be treated for public health and environmental conservations. Traditional wastewater treatment technologies are served to treat the wastes and residues. But, it not enough and consumption energy can be decisive. However, effort to find new technologies with lower energy consumption is vital. To date, the bioelectrochemical technologies are either the generation of electricity from relatively cheap organic compounds along with the wastewater treatment. More explore in bioelectrochemical technologies leds to appearing the new process that it called as Bioelectrosynthesis or Microbial electrosynthesis (MES).

Peroxide is the immediate product of fatty materials oxidation. Generally, the more degree of unsaturated fat causes the more amounts of fat or fatty materials to prepare for oxidation. The study was a case-experimental research. Sixteen samples of consumed fat and 23 samples of unconsumed fat were sampled during three phases in different intervals at the end of work on the basis of the national standard (number 493). The effects of parameters such as fat temperature, heating time, type of fat consumption, and the type of cooking utensil were determined. The obtained samples were sent to the food stuffs laboratory and the peroxide number of the fats was evaluated on the basis of 4179 standard method. The data were analyzed by SPSS. The valuation of peroxide index in the research showed that there was a relationship between the amount of peroxide and temperature. It means that, the amount of peroxide increased by increasing temperature but there was no significant relationship between them ( p= 0.069). Moreover, there was a relationship between the kind of consumed oil and peroxide value but this relationship was not significant (p= 0.74). There was a significant relationship between the time of frying and peroxide value (p= 0.001). There was also a significant relationship between peroxide value and the kind of cooking utensil (p= 0.047). The results showed that there were many effective factors in increasing the amount of peroxide value such as temperature, time of frying, kind of consumed oil and kind of used utensil.

Aim: This research aimed to evaluate the attitudes of healthcare professionals towards women managers. Method: This research was conducted using the general screening model. 122 healthcare professionals working in a public hospital affiliated to the Ministry of Health constitute consisted of this research sample. "Attitude Towards Women Managers Scale" was used as data collection tool. Findings: The average score of healthcare professional' attitudes towards women managers is higher in "Task Role Behaviors" sub-dimension than other sub-dimension. While the attitudes of healthcare professional to women managers differ according to gender, occupation and manager preference variables, there is no significant difference according to age, education, marital status and seniority. Women's healthcare professional' attitudes towards women managers were found to be more positive than men's healthcare professional in "Task Role Behaviors", "Relational Role Behaviors" and "Work Ethic" sub-dimensions. Conclusion: In the health sector, where the majority of women employees are in, it is thought that it will be beneficial to provide government support to raise the level of women in management at the same level as men, to develop and implement effective policies for them, and to make arrangements to support women as becoming managers.

In the past, the industrial discharged the sewage into the environment without regard to its consequences. On the other hand, increasing of human population, industrial and economic growth, has created many problems that it promised future environmental problems. The textile industry as a basic industry of many countries has been created a main concerns due to its environmental effects and hazardous wastes. The textile industry is consisted from a broad spectrum of units and processes that those are generated a strong wastewaters containing many hazardous and toxic matters including heavy metals, pesticides, pigments and dyes (azo dyes), acids and soda, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs). Accordingly, it is expected that the environmental problems and several health effects such as cancers, allergies and irritability be created. However, the seriously decisions to prevention of these problem should be considered. Based on literatures, the characteristics of wastewater streams that incoming form different units has been reviewed. The main concerns related to textile wastewaters are choosing the best technology and providing an appropriate treatment method. Most common successful treatment methods are placed in physicochemical and biological subsets.

Off label prescription is common in Europe and economically motivated off label prescription is being increasingly recognised by the national laws of the Member States of the European Union, even though both European law and the European courts refute the prevalence of financial considerations over public health. This article examines the causes of economically motivated off label prescription, the current legislative and administrative measures implemented in several European countries and its consequences, and it concludes that in very specific scenarios off label prescription grounded in economic reasons should be allowed.
