  Modification of jute fibre was due to sulphonation which were improved the physico-chemical and physico-mechanical properties of jute fibre. The change in chemical composition, morphological, geometrical structure, tensile properties and stress-strain characteristics were determined at different degree of sulphonation at optimal reaction conditions. The dimensional structure and mechanical properties of sulphonated jute fiber was studied. In sulphonation no damage and disintegration of the fibre cells were noticed except swelling of the secondary wall only and the fibre tenacity was not impaired. The sulphonation treatment in the optimal condition were improved the fineness in terms of linear density and developed flexibility, softness and compressibility of jute fibre. These values were measured in order to assess the textile importance of sulphonated jute fibre compared to cotton and other textile fibres for fine spinning. The stress-strain properties of the sulphonated fiber were much improved. The breaking extension of jute fibre was increased up to 3% with the degree of sulphonation against the initial value of 1%. The evaluation of these properties was regarded very significant towards improvement of spinnable characters and other textile performances of the sulphonated jute fibre.

  The objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of thickening agents such as carboxymethylcellulose and starch on the quality parameter of tomato ketchup during storage at 30°C. The carboxymethylcellulose was used at the rate of 0.75-1.25% while, starch was 3-4% in the formulation of tomato ketchup. The moisture content of ketchup was increased by the addition of both the thickening agents. The protein, fibre, ash, acidity and total soluble solid of tomato ketchup were decreased gradually when higher percentage of starch and carboxymethylcellulose were added. Amounts of lycopene, vitamin C and reducing sugar content were higher in the ketchup where starch was used. Starch and carboxymethylcellulose had <10 cfu/g of molds and total viable bacteria throughout storage at 30°C for 60 days. Carboxymethylcellulose treated ketchup was found more suitable than the starch treated through sensory evaluation.

  Two hundred and twenty five mothers of Dhaka medical college hospital are interviewed to investigate of determinants of malnutrition. All of our respondents were under two years of age. One hundred fourteen of them were girls and rests 111 were boys. All of the children were from different socio-economic status coming different places of Bangladesh. 28% of the respondents family monthly income were below 3001-5000, 3.6% were below 20,000-25,000 and 16.4% were 10,000-15,000, 21.3% respondents mothers were illiterate, 24.4% mothers were primary level, 32% mothers were secondary level, 11.1% mothers were higher secondary level and 11.1% were graduate. The nutritional status children were not found very from normal to 3rd degree malnourishment. Nearly 45.8% were normal, 1.8% was over nourished and 2.2% were 3rd degree malnourished. In the above context, it can be concluded that a large number of the population of Bangladeshi children are suffering from malnutrition (more than half) and are likely to grow smaller and smaller. This is implication of the fact that we are heading towards a nation that will see its children to be of small status and low weight population. So, we need to give highest priority to child health and nutrition if we hope for a brighter future of our country.

  This study investigate, the various issues of empowerment and reproductive behavior of married women such as health status, decision making of reproductive behavior etc in some selected areas of Chapai Nawabganj district, using the information from 500 ever married women within the reproductive span (15-49 years). Findings reveal that women are found less concerned and deprived to take decision about their own health as well as their child health. The data shows that 55.0% women received antenatal care during their last pregnancy but only 4.5% has participated in decision making about their antenatal care. At postnatal period, 51.65 and 58.78% women took treatment for themselves and their child, respectively but only 5.14%s has participated in decision making about their postnatal care. The logistic analysis shows that respondentís current age, education, occupation, husbandís education, per capita yearly income, assistance during delivery and decision for household affairs are mostly associated with antenatal caster seeking behavior of married women.
