Abstract: Objective: The aim of this study was to review the results of non-operative treatment of odontoid fractures in Steve Biko Academic Hospital, Pretoria. Methods: Records for all patients treated for odontoid fractures from 2008 to 2018 were reviewed. 28 patients met the study criteria. Demographic data, mechanism of injury, associated injuries, neurology, imaging studies and treatment were reviewed. Results: There were 23 males and 5 females. The average age at presentation was 39.5 years. 25 patients were injured in road traffic accidents. Associated injuries were present in 21 patients, mostly involving the spine and head. 18 fractures were classified as Type II and 15 as Type III. Fracture comminution (5), angulation (6) and translation (10) were noted. Primarily treatment modalities were cones callipers, Philadelphia collar or halo vest. Fracture union was assessed radiologically at 3, 6 and 9 months. Type II and III fractures had high union rates at 6 and 9 months. Significantly displaced fractures had a statistically lower union rate (p = 0.0285) at 6 months. Conclusion: Minimally displaced odontoid Type II and III fractures can be effectively treated non-operatively in young adults. Extent of fracture displacement is the single important factor in non-union rate.

Abstract: Malnutrition and anaemia reduce physical fitness and productivity. Correcting the Hb level of workers are expected to improve worker's human resource and productivity. This in turn, will bring mutual benefits both to the producers and to development overall. A study on "The effect of food supplementation on anemic women workers to improve productivity", has been carried out. The subjects of study were the workers of traditional herbal medicine factory with Hb levels below 12.0 gr/dl assigned in production section doing their work manually. The subjects were divided into three groups using simple random sampling. The first group was given supplementary food; the second was treated with supplementary food and iron pills once a week, and the third was placebo group as a control. Supplementary food was given in the form of snack with energy content of 300 kcal, the amount to compensate the energy deficit (based on baseline data collected before), which was given five times per week within four months. The iron pill was ferrous sulfate with dose of 60 mg once a week also for four months. The results of the study can be summarized as follows; The group with supplementary food containing of300 kcal for four months shows similar result with the placebo group in terms of nutrition status, Hb level and productivity. The group treated with supplementary food and weekly iron pill results in increase in Hb level and productivity significantly (p<0.05). Productivity of the first group increases by 154 packs/hour/person, while the second group, productivity increases by 164 packs/hour/person, and placebo group is 124 packs/hour/person.

Abstract: Information on the geography and environment: the use of fish poison and food containing goitrogenic substance, the use of pesticide on agriculture and environment contamination of lead and mercury in relation to Iodine Deficiency Disorders (IDD) are discussed in this paper. Geography location is grouped into 3 categories i.e. highland area, lowland area and swampy land areas. Goitre prevalence in highland, lowland and swampy areas were 30.3%, 8.7%, and 2.8% respectively. The goitre prevalence (8.7%) in lowland areas showed that there are pockets of goitre areas. In some coastal areas, fishermen use fish poison to kill certain fish to save the growth of milkjish from disturbance. If one consumed the death fish the level of chloride in blood will increase and will reduce the bio-synthesis of thyroxine (T4) hormone. That is why cases of goitre were found in coastal areas. Value of urinary thiocynates can be used as indicator that one consumes goitrogenic substances i.e. cyanates. Detoxification process of cyanates produces thiocyanates. If one consumes sufficient protein containing sulphurous the cyanates will convert into thiocyanates. The use of pesticide on agriculture could be decreased the hormone cholinesterase. As goitrogenic substance residu of pesticide will lead to delay the biosynthesis of thyroxine (T4) hormone. Research findings indicated that in lowland area of East Java that blood lead level was associated with hypothyroidism. It is assumed that contamination of lead (Pb) and mercury (Hg) in water come from residual industry. It was reported from another research in Yogyakarta that women lived in urban area who was exposured by Pb in gas emission of motor-vehicle had relatively risk suffering from hypothyroidism 4 times than those of not contaminated. Key words: geography, environment, fish poison, cloride, goitrogenic substance.

In complex business environment, most firms are facing pressures to respond proactively to the environmental factors rapidly and be innovative and effective in order to survive. Therefore, or-ganizations are required to be agile, and have the right information at the right time to make better decisions. In this paper, we examine the linkage between information technology practices (ITP) and supply chain agility (SCA). This study also analyzes the moderating role of market, firm and supply chain factors on the relationship between ITP and SCA. The data collection instrument used was a questionnaire which was administrated to a total sample of 500 respondents from food and beverages industry in peninsular Malaysia. The number of questionnaire collected was only 130 (26%) and the number of usable questionnaire was 100 (20%). The analyses involved statistical methods such as reliability and validity tests, correlation analysis and multiple regressions. The result suggested that ITP have positive impact on SCA. These findings suggest that firm should consider ITP that can improve SCA.

Abstract: Supply chain management has become an important issue in a business organization. Organizations are facing increasing competitive pressure with respect to prices, delivery, quality, variety and innovation of products and services. In order to respond to thesechallenges, organizations require an integrated supply chain. The purpose of this research is to present the relationship between firm integration and supply chain orientation and supporting technology as moderating that relationship. The data collection instrument usedwas a questionnaire which was administrated to a total sample of 400 executive officers, directors, presidents, vice presidents, managers, and senior staff in fourteen South Sumatra areas. Sample selection was based on convenience sampling. The data were analyzed usingmean, standard deviation and correlation between independent and dependent variables. The analyses involved statistical methods such as reliability and validity tests and multiple regressions. The results indicated that internal firm integration is related to customer orientation, competitor orientation, supplier orientation and logistic orientation. Firm-supplier integration is related to logistic orientation, operation orientation and value chaincoordination. Firm-customer integration is also found to be related to all supply chain orientation components. The moderating influence of supporting technology on the internal firm integration and firm-supplier integration and supply chain orientation was notdemonstrated. However, the moderating influence of supporting technology on the firmcustomer integration and supply chain orientation did exist.

Abstract: Ethnobotanical surveys of Manzini and Shiselweni regions of Swaziland were conducted to document new phytomedicines used in Swaziland and to determine their chemical constituents with a view to provide the scientific basis of the use of the remedies in traditional medical practice and as a guide to bioprospecting for drugs. The plants collected in the surveys were extracted with suitable solvents and analysed for secondary metabolites. Sixty one medicinal plants from thirty five families used for treating thirty one diseases were analysed. The medicinal uses of these plants had never been documented in the pharmacopoeia of Swaziland. Different classes of secondary metabolites were found in the plants, namely alkaloids, anthranoids, flavonoids, glycosides, polyphenols, saponins, steroids and tannins. Some of the diseases the plants were used to treat are back ache, cardiac problems, chest pain, cough, diabetes, diarrhoea, headache, menorrhagia, snake bite, stomach ache and urino-genital problems. The presence of these secondary metabolites in the plants was of great importance in the understanding of the basis of the use of the plants in traditional medical practice and may provide a lead in bioprospecting for new pharmaceutical products of herbal origin.
