Questionnaire for assessing Health Seeking Behaviour..?
I'm looking for validated questionnaires to use in a small study to assess Health Seeking Behaviour in a particular community.
Can anyone help?
Thanks in advance!
Health seeking behaviour:
I found these two use in studies, but I have not been able to find the actual document or variations of them, but its a start:
General Health Questionnaire (GHQ-12): index of psychological impairment
Actual Help Seeking Questionnaire (AHSQ): Mental Health QuestionnaireFollowing
Do you think that the phenomenon of "Climate Change" has been exaggerated by some researchers?
Just see the attached file and see that there is enough water and fresh air to say hello to all individuals of this Planet.
Is it true that we are approaching fast towards the end of this civilization and climate change is the villain?
If we look at the whole global context, no. But if we analyze the focus of the reports, I assume, yes.
The trial and future use of weapons of mass destruction point to the capability of man to destroy earth's environment and earth itslef and indeed radically change its climate.Following

Thin films of ZnO does not show any resistances. Why is this the case?
I have sputtered thin film of ZnO over glass plate. It appears to be less transparent than plain glass. I tried to measure the resistance of this thin film by using a simple multimeter. It is not showing any resistance values. I don't know why this is the case. But in the literatures they have reported for ZnO as some lesser values of resistance in the range of milli ohm.
Resistance of any transition metal oxide thin thin film depends on oxygen content in the film. Depending on the degree of deviation from the stoichiometric composition resistance of the material change.Following
Can I determine plant volatiles using a DB-5 ms column (30 x 0.25 x 0.25)?
I need to determine the volatile compounds from fungus infected grape berries. I am using SPME (2-cm length; film thickness 50/30 lm;DVB/Carboxen/PDMS). Right now, I have a DB-5 mc column in my GC. I am only getting 1 or 2 peaks..!!!
I am agree with Mohamed Abou-Elwafa Abdallah. Your target compounds are polar. So you should use the polar columns to get the better separation. You should opt for another column rather than derivatizing the analytes.Following
How to calculate daily, annual and seasonal rainfall using statistics(Mann Kendall test)?
i had a data.
in this case, i need to calculate daily rainfall mostly and i giving to you one example data regarding data.
i want values follow below
1) Zmk value
3) sen's slope value
4) percentage change in rainfall
Thank you sir. But, that data is a Example daily data of Dungapur District (Rajasthan State in INDIA). Daily data having more ZERO values. I think you may know about the climate of Rajasthan state.
May be we can slove through MATLAB software. please sirFollowing

Does make sense to combine the project management framework (PRINCE2) and the agile development framework (Scrum) into a single integrated framework?
What I am missing in PRINCE2 is the guidence how to organize agile development team and how to manage changing business requirements in a less bureaucratic way. In Scrum I am missing some basic project management themes like business case, risk management, roles including RACI and project governance.
In Practical, Waterfall and Scrum requires different way of managing though the quality metrics remain same. So as a Project manager you need to wear a different hat when handling waterfall based projects vs agile based projects. This is based on my industrial experience as a Project manager where i handled both Waterfall and Agile projects.Following

What is the range of power distribution transformers?
in 20 kv voltage What is the range of power distribution transformers?
The transformers are always associated with the operational voltage. I do not know where you use 20 kV exactly. Usually 20 kV falls in primary distribution level. The transformers will be generally rated at 5 to 10 MVA in this voltage range, unless one specifies the requirement.Following

What is philosophy of mathematics? What is it for?
Philosophy of physics once placed a significant role to solve defects in the foundation of physics disclosed by paradoxes; it is hopefully that philosophy of mathematics will do the same.
The infinite related paradoxes have been troubling us for such a long time------the fundamental defects are not only mathematics and not only philosophy. Is it the faults of our not having been done enough on “philosophy of mathematics”?
Do we need both theoretical and applied “philosophy of mathematics”?
Is it too much requirements for “philosophy of mathematics”?
The relationship between mathematics and philosophy today is different. Mathematicians generally not interested in the philosophy of mathematics. For the average mathematics philosophical considerations about the ontological status of mathematical objects and reasons for which mathematics can be used to
descriptions of reality are not relevant or interesting. Certainly do not have
are irrelevant for the job - a stochastic process by examining whether the differential equation, the mathematician does wonders whether this is a stochastic process created or whether it regardless of its research. Among mathematicians there is general agreement as to what is correct mathematical proof from which assumptions may not use, etc. Specialist in the field of applied mathematics do not think about how it happens is that created by the model suitable to describe the development of a strain of bacteria or trading behavior of investors - it creates models and content with the fact that they are useful.Following

How to use SVMlight on xml datasets to find Precision and recall?
I'm working on Duplicate detection in XML Data and I want to use SaVM to find Precision/Recall on XML datasets.
I tried to use the SVMlight tool but I'm not getting how to use same tool for any xml file. I've also converted XML file to .CSV and .ARFF but SVM light can not work on both types of file. Is it necessary to convert it further? How do I make XML dataset as training set and test set?
Can we draw the spectral curve for a single pixel in image satellite?
Considering that satellites (for example LANDSAT) take a image in multi bands and every bands take a image in spectral range (for example for band 1 of ETM+ sensor it is equal to 0.52-0.45 micrometer) so we should be able to draw the spectral curve for each pixel.
in addition,use mean value curve and min,max curve to sea your observed phenomena within the pixel and how it correlateFollowing

What are the key factors that must be addressed/considered before proposing a site as Community Reserve in Indian scenario?
We are trying to propose a wetland as community reserve. We have the data on biodiversity of the area. Please suggest what other parameters need to assessed before making any proposition.
@ Rodrigo Dias-- The Site is in the Tarai belt (North India) of Himalayas, developed after barrage construction. Most of the locals are agricultural laborers, however some do fishing as well for living. We are planning to study the attitude and dependency of locals on the site (i.e. water body). The area is densely populated, underdeveloped and economically weak. The area is well connected by road and the nearest Railway station is also 30 Km far.Following
