Centralised Admission Policy (CAP) admission lists

CAP issues admission lists
Karachi, Sep 05, 2008: The Centralised Admission Policy (CAP) on Thursday issued the admission lists for two major faculties of HSC Part-I, including Home Economics Group and Computer Science (male and female), belonging to 25 colleges of the metropolis.

The numbers of admissions in the faculty of Home Economics are being declined day by day as only 434 admissions were given this year, which considerably low than the last year when 534 admissions had been offered in the city on the same account. CAP will start receiving claims forms from September 10, 2008," said D G Colleges Dr Rafiq Ahmed Siddiqui on Thursday, while speaking at a press conference held at PECHS Government Girls College.

He observed that there was a dominant inclination in the students to have admissions in the faculty of computer science. He said, "This year nearly 84,000 admissions are being given to six faculties of nearly 123 colleges. Such faculties include Science (Pre-Engineering), Science (Pre-Medical), General Science (Computer), Commerce, Humanities (Arts) and Home Economics which is offered to the female students only.

To a query, he said that millions of rupees were being spent to run the admissions-related activities under the CAP. It is pertinent to mention here that CAP has already separated around 38 higher secondary schools of the metropolis from CAP on the demands of former EDO Fakhar Karim and DO Iqbal.

434 application forms were received for admissions to the faculty of home economics on the available seats of 600, and all 434 candidates have been given admissions to Rana Liaquat Ali Khan Govt College of Home & Economics Karachi. The admissions to said faculty and college were started from 772 marks and closed at 362 total marks (43 percent). Conversely, CAP has given admission to the faculty of computer science in 11 colleges of the city to 5,74 female candidates, having 106 A-One grades, 347 A grades, 120 B grades and 1 C grades. However a total of 1108 application forms were received on the same account. The admissions were commenced from 759 marks and closed at 504 marks (59 per cent). However, around 51 candidates were admitted to Abdullah Government College for Women , 52 to Government College for Women Nazimabad , 100 to Sir Syed Government College for Women, 51 to APWA Government College for Women, 25 to Government Girls College Zam Zama, 40 to Government College for Women, 50 to Government Degree Science College Malir Cantt, 52 to St. Lawrance Government Girls College, 53 to Government BAMM PECHS College for Women, 50 Government Degree College Stadium Road and 50 candidates and 50 students facilitated at Government Degree Science & Commerce College.

To get admission in the faculty of computer science, a total of 1210 male candidates submitted their application forms to CAP out of which 827 candidates have been offered admissions to nearly 13 colleges of the megalopolis. The admission were given to 47 A-One grade holders, 274 A grade holders, 312 B grade possessors and 180 C grade holders. The admission was started from 740 marks and closed at 372 marks (43 per cent).

NED experts argue green slime will cut import bill
Karachi: NED University Department of Environmental Engineering Engineer Mehmood Ali and Dr Mohammed Harun have argued that Pakistan's import bill can be reduced by Rs 69.5 billion (US $1.037 billion) if only bio diesel produced from non-edible raw materials is used in the transportation sector.

The engineers said that Pakistan has enough natural energy sources and willing scientists and experts to overcome the fuel and power crises but it is a lack of government interest and support that is a major obstacle. Pakistan consumes around 10 million tons of diesel per year, with a monthly consumption coming to around 667,000 tons.

"Bio diesel is a pollution-free energy source that can be produced from vegetable oils," said Ali. Programs to harness alternative renewable energy sources are the need of the hour and the government of Pakistan has announced one such program will start from 2015.

The price of mineral diesel in Pakistan is US$ 0.89 per liter (Rs 64.73 per liter) and the price of bio diesel in the US is around US$ 1.44 per liter. "Therefore, bio diesel production can also have major economic benefits for us," he argued, "especially given the fact that it can be obtained from non-edible crops that can grow on marginal land, in saline water or in wastewater ponds."

Pakistan State Oil (PSO) has already planted Jatropha plants near Karachi for bio diesel production. Ali informed that the high prices of bio diesel in the US are due to the fact that they use edible crops, such as corn, for bio diesel production. "Algae is perfect for bio diesel production, as its land requirement is minimal compared to other oil-yielding crops. Plus, algae can produce up to 30 times more oil than ordinary oil seeds and there are a number of algae species which are suitable to our climatic conditions," said Dr Harun.

Algae production would not put an additional strain on freshwater reserves needed for domestic, industrial and agricultural uses. Moreover, that algae cultivation would have multiple benefits, as apart from boosting bio diesel production, algae also reduces pollution from the atmosphere. In addition, glycerin, which has a market price of Rs 170 per liter, is a by-product of bio diesel production.

Ali added that the Pakistan Council of Scientific and Industrial research (PCSIR) was undertaking a research project to determine the feasibility of growing algae in saline water and wastewater ponds. "By using wastewater as a nutrient source, these farms would essentially provide a means of recycling nutrients from fertilizer to food to waste and back to fertilizer. The castor oil yield is 1,413 liters per hectare, while the oil yield from algae is 10,000 liters per hectare," Harun added.

The advantages of algal growth include higher oil yield, cultivation in saline and wastewater ponds, a ready source of biomass for the production of heat energy, transformation of methane through alga culture grown material and the production of biological hydrogen for use in fuel cells. "The direct advantages to Pakistan include a pollution-free and greener Pakistan, employment for farmers and labourers and a reduction in fossil fuel import. Plus, foreign exchange savings will be increased and local petroleum companies will also receive a welcome boost," said Harun.

Recent studies suggest that algae are capable of yielding 30 times more oil per acre than the crops currently used in bio diesel production. "Algae can produce 5,000 to 20,000 gallons of oil per acre per year, which is far more than palm oil, which yields a paltry 635 gallons despite being one of the best crops for bio diesel production," said Ali, adding that since it is edible, palm oil cannot be used as a raw material for bio diesel.

The experts added that algae could also be economically converted into solid fuels, methane gas or bio-ethanol. It can also be used to generate electricity and can also be grown on liquid human sewage and on streams polluted by fertilizer run off, greatly reducing pollution. Daily Times
