Instructions:

I have a small project of 6000 words. I have already done 4000 words (the methodology with its result) What I want you to do is finishing this project by writing the background, research problem and justification, discussion and conclusion etc. (I attached a file named project that’s what I have done) I also attached my proposal you need to take a look at it before starting so that you can be aware of everything . Ialso want to use the references that I have used in my proposal and use other until you get 20 references. I hope all clear. The Final Format of Thesis must be like below; Table 2. A list of Preliminaries to the Thesis Title page Acknowledgements Table of Contents List of Tables List of Figures Abstract Pages Numbered using Roman numerals Title Page: The title should describe the content of the thesis accurately and concisely. The title page shall give the following information in the order listed: • The full title of the thesis and subtitle, if any • The full name of the author (followed, if desired, by any qualifications). • That "The thesis is submitted to University College Dublin in part fulfilment of the requirements for the degree of Master of... … " • The School(s) in which the research was conducted • Name of the supervisor of the research • The month and year of submission Table 3. The format of main sections of the Research Project Introduction • Background, problem statement and research questions • Specific objectives Methods • Justification for the research/survey design employed in the study • Data collection and collation • Data analysis Results • Present the findings of the study and the analysis Discussion • The findings should be in context, particularly in relation to the Introduction • Highlight the strengths, weakness, applications of the study • Indicate future research that may be required • Conclusion References Appendices Pages Numbered in standard fashion (e.g.Arabic) The References It is of the utmost importance that references be cited correctly. The style of citation of references is given below. To cite references incompletely is bad manners; to cite them incorrectly is careless. Indeed examiners of theses are unfavourably impressed by errors in the presentation of references, often regarding this as a symptom of a deeper and wider malaise. The reference format should follow that of the Journal of Applied Ecology, see the link below: http://www.journalofappliedecology.org/view/0/authorGuideline.html

Abstract
Improving farmer’s knowledge among livestock keeping farmers was found to have positive impact on the reduction of most of zoonotic infections. The main aim of this study was to evaluate the education and awareness level of brucellosis disease among animal farmers in the city of Mecca, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The study objectives were to assess the perception of the farmer’s knowledge of the disease for instance knowledge on the vaccine, usage and storage. Secondly, the study sought to examine the awareness level especially the dangers the disease cause to humans. Finally, the study sought to know whether the animal farmers are taking the right preventive measures to minimize the spread of the disease as required. The study subject was farmers who lived in the City of Mecca where every year close to 10millionto15million animals are slaughtered during the religious festivals (pilgrimage) in the city. The research design was descriptive survey methodology that was considered ideal due ton its ability to get enough information from a large area. This study used the mixed method of both quantitative and qualitative approaches. Besides, semi- structured interviewed was used to collect data from the Ministry of Agriculture to get more information on annual reports and vaccines. The study found out that despite the study population reported having attained some levels of education only 30.1% knew the vulnerability the animals infected could cause to their human lives. This discrepancy on high level of education and knowledge gap in awareness levels by farmers could be attributed mix- match of trainings, and the possibility of some farmers had lied on their education levels. Besides, the farmers also reported that there was less government intervention in supporting them fight against the disease. Farmer’s risks behaviors like selling unpasteurized milk, eating animals infected by the disease and avoiding not seeking for consultations among veterinarians in the areas were cited to be among the high-risk behavior factors.
Background
Brucellosis is a zoonotic infection that mainly persists in areas where the disease control and preventive mechanism among animal farmers are low and ineffective. This disease was first discovered in Hippocrates’ time however, the organism causing the disease was later isolated in 1887 by David Bruce, who by then was a British Army physician (Garcia del Pozo & Solera, 2012). The disease results in reproductive failure in livestock and febrile diseases in human’s beings, therefore, making it one of the diseases that easily raises a public health concern. In its initial beginnings, Brucella was classified into six groupings; Brucella melitensis, Brucella ovis, Brucella neotomae, Brucella abortus and Brucella suis. Consequently, researchers over the past years developed additional four species as the discovery spans to marine mammals, infected human breast, and rodents (Bonfoh et al. 2012). One of the most significant characteristics of Brucella was its ability to penetrate up to the endothelial reticulum thereby infecting the macrophages. The disease acts like facultative intracellular parasites and affects humans beings through contamination of dairy products, abrasions in the skin surfaces, consumption of contaminated meat, conjunctiva inoculation and inhalation of infectious aerosols. Generally, the most common clinical symptoms of brucella range from weaknesses, fever, sweating, weight loss, lethargy, decreased appetite, and psychological symptoms. Cattle and other domestic animals may show various signs ranging from abortions, swollen udders, swollen testicles, nervousness, and fever (Karcaaltincaba, Sencan & Kandemir, 2010).
Researchers have established that Brucellosis often spread through contact with infected materials especially placenta of infected animals (Al-Shamahy, Whitty &Wright2000). Additionally, human beings can get brucellosis through direct contact with discharges from infected animals as well as drinking raw milk from the infected animals. In animals, the disease can spread through drinking water, and licking discharge from infected livestock. However, brucellosis is preventable and only requires some literacy levels among animal’s farmers to be able to contain the disease. Studies on preventive mechanism of brucellosis have cited practicing strict biosecurity by all farmers especially when handling aborted fetuses, early testing, vaccination and isolating affected animals (quarantine). Radwan et al (1983) held that the first step in controlling brucellosis is accurate diagnosis of the disease and acting shiftily with remedial measures to curb its spread. Scientists have developed several tests for brucellosis diagnosis such as serological tests such...
