Global-epidemic COVID-19 changes the human civilization, health, travel, socioeconomic, education, and clinical research totally, with no targeted therapeutics, and treatment options. So, the effect of the virus is likely to be seen long after medical science offers a cure for COVID-19. India emphasis on different nutritious-vegetables for improving immunity to human-disease-free-healthy-life is naturally-infected with different-diseases caused by pathogens, significantly hampering food-production. Though pesticides are the most effective means of control, but they are not, cost-effective and environment-friendly. So, it has been an urgency to require; new and more efficient-solutions, technologies, products to fulfill its food and nutritional requirement, and methods to develop best vaccines or social-vaccine or the best medical therapy for immediately to control the coronavirus- COVID-19-disease and prevent more damage. Amaranth is a nutritious as well as traditional-medicinal-vegetables-plant. So, it is focused on the amaranth-plant, intercropped with okra-plant, to determine the effects on pathogens-infected-diseases of both plants; Root-Knot, Mosaic-Virus and Leaf-Curl-Virus in a well-protected-garden. After harvesting, of the two-plant-species, amaranth received maximum pathogen-infection, forming the ―Potential-Eco-Friendly-Highly-Economical-Biomedicines-Catch-Vegetable-Crop-Plants‖, conserving ―Biodiversity-Conservations-Sustainable- Climate-Health and Development with Important Socio-Economic-Implications in Agriculture‖, though both are highly susceptible to diseases, and the farmers would be benefited double; by controlling-diseases, and by buying-selling the amaranth-okra.

Developmental projects are a beacon of socioeconomic and political growth and stability in the developing world . Projects in Africa and beyond are an instrument of achieving the much needed development that makes a positive growth trajectory. Projects can be locally funded whilst others can have international sponsorships. The success indicators of project ventures are what attract project capital in any specific country. However, in Africa most high level projects are faced with a lot of challenges thereby rendering them to fail and in turn cause the flight of project capital. This research tries to understand the psychological concept of macro-projects failure in Zimbabwe. The major objective is to understand why developmental projects are failing and what can be done to change these failure into success stories. The findings were generated through qualitative methods with the use of desk research and secondary data with particular focus to secondary in-depth interviews of key informants involved in the chosen projects. Reliability and validity was arrived at through collaborating data gathered from interviews with those from documentary search. Results revealed that projects operate within certain spheres or environments. The sphere has to be compatible with the project objectives in order for them to be successfully implemented. It was recommended that there has to be a national project policy that addresses how projects should operate and coordinated on the backdrop of the above spheres. Zimbabwe is recommended to develop a National Project Policy that will guide the execution of high level interventions in order to minimise failure and increase the success of all projects.

Cancer has all the potentials to affect nearly each aspect of a person’s life. In fact, the complex treatment procedures of the diagnosed individual itself can create distress which can have a long term damaging impact on patients’ mental health and healing progress in itself. Hence, an understanding of cancer patients’ current experiences and the way they perceive their condition could be very helpful for both patients and health professionals. In that way, the present piece of work attempt to explore the varied illness perceptions of cancer patients to know whether it explain changes in the application of different coping strategies. Self-reported illness perception and coping strategies were investigated using revised illness perception questionnaire and Coping Operation Preference Enquiry (COPE-28). The sample comprised of 80 cancer patients (40 male, 40 female). The results of multiple stepwise regression analysis demonstrated that illness perception dimensions accounted a greater percentage of the variance in the coping strategies used by the participants to manage their illness. Cure/control perception over illness, attributing internal factors to illness causation and having better understanding about the illness encourages adaptive coping strategy which might be important in improving psychological and physical health too. The potential role of varied illness perceptions in the management of cancer is discussed in the light of Leventhal’s self-regulation model (1984).
