Abstract: All types of Freon, including those that do not contain chlorine and are not considered Ozone-depleting substances, have negative effects to the environment because they contribute to global warming. As a result of the harmful effects Freon has upon the environment, numerous research studies of existing refrigeration systems have been carried out. Some of those studies were related to the quantity of Freon that leaks out into the atmosphere, while others were related to what causes Freon to leak. The results of a research on quantity of Freon emissions from refrigerating systems in Serbia are shown in this paper. These findings are important since they represent the starting point when defining measures aimed at reducing Freon emissions and leakage from refrigeration and air conditioning systems.

Abstract: Adult male and female cockroaches, Periplaneta americana (L.) were assayed for the presence of digestive enzymes in the fore-, mid- and hindgut regions. Activities of α-amylase, β-amylase, γ-amylase, proteinase and lipase were detected in the three gut regions except for the absence of γ-amylase and lipase in female hindgut. The presence of these enzymes partly explains the polyphagous feeding habit of P. americana, enabling the insect species to digest a wide variety of food substances. In some instances, significant differences in enzyme activities were observed between sexes and among gut regions. Generally, enzyme activity was highest in the midgut followed by the fore- and hindgut in descending order. Despite this trend, a considerable level of proteinase and male lipase was observed in the hindgut suggesting that it might be necessary to give extra attention to hindgut activities in future studies.

Abstract: Globally, around 2.6 billion people still rely on traditional biomass fuels for their cooking. This biomass burning produces green house gases and black carbon, which contributes to climate change. Uganda’s low level of income as shown by a low per capita income (approx. US$300) and its heavy dependence on rain-fed agriculture make it very vulnerable to climate change. Uganda like other countries in the least developed Countries (LDC) group, through its energy policies emphasizes the importance of access to sustainable energy and affordable energy efficient technologies in order to adapt to climate change. Although climate change and it effects have taken root in most part of the country, there is limited knowledge about climate change and its impact. Mitigation and adaptive measures taken by Uganda include but are not limited to creating a mix of renewable and low carbon technologies, implementation of reduce emission from deforestation and desertification (REDD) strategy and widespread implementation of energy efficient measures such as the dissemination of improved cook stoves to households.

Abstract: This paper reviews the energy sector of Uganda. As is typical of East Africa, it is characterized by excessive use of Biomass to provide over 90% of the energy needs. Uganda is one of the least developed countries in the region. Hydropower provides over 90% of the total electricity generated in the country while wind, solar and geothermal are under developed. Energy policies are geared towards the use of modern, clean and energy efficient technologies. This is stimulating public private partnerships, attracting multilateral and bilateral agencies to provide funding, grants and technical assistance in renewable energy projects. The Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) of the United Nations avail project developers the opportunity to obtain carbon finance. Several challenges hindering the development in the energy sector and utilization of renewable energy resources have been identified. Strategies for achieving the United Nations Sustainable Energy for All Initiative have been presented.

Abstract: The impact of mining and mineral extraction activities can be significant on the surrounding land, water and air bodies, in any operational area. The environmental degradation ranges from localized surface and ground water contamination to the damaging effects of airborne pollutants on the regional ecosystem; which need the properly designed geospatial database. The monitoring of these environmental impacts requires a user-friendly and cost effective method to quantify the land cover changes over large time periods. Now-a-days, it has become compulsory to use the remote sensing techniques for regular monitoring of these environmental hazards in-and-around the mining areas. This paper provides a case study on the use of geospatial techniques for environmental monitoring in the mining areas.

Abstract: Sensor network has quick installation, dynamic configuration features. Security of the data in the wireless sensor network has become a critical issue. As the applications are increasing, privacy preservation is an important issue in wireless sensor network. Depending on the nature of the installment of the network and the data that is exchanged between two nodes, steps taken to secure the data have to be decided. Security mechanisms like authentication and encryption play a vital role. The existing encryption algorithms cannot be applied directly to WSN. Care has to be taken to modify these algorithms to fit into WSN, as these modifications may lead to additional computations which consume additional energy and additional communication. This paper aims at implementing one such encryption algorithm which is easy to develop using common programming language like C and easy to port across different processors varying in processing speed, computations and operating word size.

Abstract: Bodos are the major tribe inhabiting in BTC. The Bodos have rich cultural and social heritage. They have their own religion and language. Since Bodos are living around the forest and nature; they have some traditional believes and knowledge in plants and forests. Perhaps the availability and richness of forest and plants of the areas where they inhabit may be the important reasons how they get influence with plants and forests in their socio-cultural and religious life. The Scientific documentation of the plant specieswhich are used in socio-cultural and religious activities will definitely give encouragement to the community tribal people. The preservation of their indigenous knowledge with plant and forest may be important tools for conservation of these plant species. In this paper, a total of 48 plant species from 36 different families are documented.

Abstract: Financial sector has witnessed many changes over the last few decades. The economic development of a country is correlated with the financial sector. For the growth of financial sector the participation of every individual of a country is needed that is reflected in the motive of financial inclusion. Since in developing countries or LCDs large proportion of population is dependent on agriculture, but in most of rural areas of these countries financial intermediation has a poor performance and is unable to meet sustainable development. Financial inclusion at a broader level for poor is still a dream for most of the countries. Financial innovation therefore may be the only way to make financial facility available for poor at all levels of income. Some of these products are especially designed targeting the poor. New financial products for poor will be able to remove poverty in rural areas and can play a crucial role in socio-economic change in the rural society. This paper discusses literature review of financial innovation, its impact on rural areas and discusses how some of the innovative financial products helped in financial inclusion for poor people. Moreover it reflects use of technological advancement for innovative financial products that helped in financial inclusion and poverty alleviation. It also gives some suggestions for new financial products to bring more rural poor people in the ambit of financial inclusion for their financial needs. The data and facts used is secondary data from world bank and other agencies reports.

Abstract: A large body of scientific evidence holds that a combination of carbohydrates and protein/essential amino acids is more efficient than carbohydrates alone when in optimal muscle strength and size gains through resistance training is the goal. However, there is much less consensus on what the optimal timing of administration is, with conflicting reports regarding consumption of supplements before, during, and after training. To try and answer some of these questions, a study was conducted using 23 volunteers performing resistance training for 8 weeks, and consuming either a combination of carbohydrates and protein or carbohydrates alone. Measurements of body composition, limb circumference and strength were performed both before and after. No significant differences could were be found observed in any of the measurements between the two groups after 8 weeks of training. While this was unexpected, a closer look at the data, as well as an evaluation of the training methods and nutrient supplementation used in the study in comparison with by other studies in the field, revealed that issues such as nutrient composition, dosage and the training process (directly supervised or not) training may have a strong influence on the results of a training study. Thus, in order to conclusively answer the question of which training and nutritional strategy produces were the best results, first of all, a more standardized training methods are is required.

Abstract: A melogenesis Imperfecta is a developmental disturbance that interferes with normal enamel formation in the absence of a systemic disorder. In general, it affects all or nearly all of the teeth in both the primary and permanent dentitions1. A 16-year old patient with a history of brown-stained teeth reported to the Dental office. She complained of stained teeth ever since it erupted and parents noticed similarly stained teeth with her deciduous teeth as well. On clinical examination the teeth were found to have yellowish to brown stains (internal) that did not remove with gentle probing. She was found to have Amelogenesis Imperfecta Hypoplastic Type (Witkop’s classification)2 with pitting and flakes of enamel chipping off on probing. The enamel exposed the underlying whitish dentine in some areas and made it sensitive to the patient. In terms of investigation, there was no DNA analysis done to isolate the defective gene, due to non-feasibility and non-compliance of the patient with regards to drawing blood. The condition was analyzed purely of the basis of clinical analysis. Since she had no other systemic abnormality, any syndrome(s) was ruled out. Her dental age was corroborated to her chronological age and she had complete set of 28 permanent teeth erupted with a Class I occlusion and no orthodontic anomaly recorded.

Abstract: The work describes the development of Online Assamese Stroke & Akshara Recognizer based on a set of language rules. In handwriting literature strokes are composed of two coordinate trace in between pen down and pen up labels. The Assamese aksharas are combination of a number of strokes, the maximum number of strokes taken to make a combination being eight. Based on these combinations eight language rule models have been made which are used to test if a set of strokes form a valid akshara. A Hidden Markov Model is used to train 181 different stroke patterns which generates a model used during stroke level testing. Akshara level testing is performed by integrating a GUI (provided by CDAC-Pune) with the Binaries of HTK toolkit classifier, HMM train model and the language rules using a dynamic linked library (dll). We have got a stroke level performance of 94.14% and akshara level performance of 84.2%.

Abstract: Software quality is becoming an important part in software design, helping the designer to handle the complexity of large systems. While designing, the architect should analyze the system requirements before committing the resources to it. The analyzing process helps us to ensure the high quality of architecture design. For the past decade, there were many analyzing methods are used, which in turn to analyze only the views of single stakeholder. By doing so, there are many limitations that lead to critical situation in the development process. They elaborated this situation to excessive amount of time to perform the complete analysis. The scope of finding the key architectural decision is very difficult. Intend of these types of analysis gives the detailed information only after the designing phase, which makes the software unusable and not satisfied by the end-users. Generally, unusable software is useless.

Abstract: To prepare a database of germplasm diversity in the Indian sedges, cytological studies were initiated on population basis from Punjab plains and adjoining areas. About 2000 taxonomical species have been recorded for major genus Carex but the cytological picture is quite dismal at the world level with chromosome records for only 579 species and 14 out of about 148 Indian species. The chromosome number varies from 2n=12 to 2n=114 on worldwide basis. Polyploids, intraspecific and aneuploid cytotypes are very common. Data suggest the existence of x=6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 13, 17 and 19. Chromosome numbers 2n=60 is most frequent which support x=6 as the primary base numbers for Carex. The genus is dominated by polyploids with 98.96% of the taxa being polyploid ranging from 4x-12x ploid level. The chromosome size of the genus is small which support the breakage of diffuse centric chromosomes to account for existence of high %age of chromosome number variations which are perpetuated through vegetative multiplication prevalent in the family.

Abstract: Entrepreneurs are important in the economy of a country. It could improve the overall economy of the country by opening more jobs opportunities which means more income to the country. That is why some scientist said that the minimum percentage of entrepreneurs in a country is 2%. In Indonesia, it still has low entrepreneur percentage which is only 1.56%. Compare to other South Asia countries like Singapore which has 5% of entrepreneurs, Indonesia is still being left behind. This paper explores the factors that affect the entrepreneur growth in Bekasi region, Indonesia. The research identified the education and motivation factors, entrepreneurial intention, readiness of potential entrepreneurs, government rules for the entrepreneurs, and hinders to capital access. The quantitative research method is used as well in this paper. The questionnaires are spread for 215 respondents. The result shows that the education and motivation factor has significant affect people to be an entrepreneur.

Abstract: Business processes manifest the business knowledge and related logics. As it becomes more common for organizations to describe their operations in terms of business processes, it is necessary to establish a Business Process Repository to manage thousands of process models while providing capabilities for effective sharing and reusing of valuable business and process related knowledge. Even though there are number of repositories exist to store process models, the heterogeneity of current process repositories makes it difficult to relate and share process knowledge across them. A survey of existing business process repositories has been reported here by reviewing number of available process repositories and the existing literature. Analyzing the principles on which development of these repositories are based, a comparison is made to identify the strengths and shortcomings. Founding on these principles, a number of essential properties that a successful process repository solution should possess are proposed as to support process repositories development efforts. Consequently, such a repository would become a common information asset to all business users and especially facilitate reuse over different business domains while enhancing assuring sharing and reuse business process knowledge.

Abstract: For every country, human resource is a main power for country development. Vietnam is an agricultural developing country, rural labor force accounts for the majority of the whole country labor force. Rural human resource development is a compelling need to ensure Vietnam economy development speed, especially for northern midland and mountainous area, where there are special geographical characteristics and social. Economic condition is backward and lower compared to the average condition of whole country. Northern midland and mountainous area has special geographical characteristics with limited traffic structure, backward social, economic condition and low qualified rural human resource. These difficulties lead education programs implemented in this area be not effective as expected, especially for rural laborers in the countryside. Improving quality of rural labors can help them to increase their income, improve quality of life and also promote rural sustainable development. It is necessary to find some education models that can meet the requirements of this area condition by studying on the general education programs, vocational and technical training programs supported by the government. Finding out the causes of education programs limitations and disadvantages to propose solutions for this area. A study on the experiences lesson absorbing from the failures of vocational and technical training programs supported by the government, and the success experiences of vocational and technical training programs implemented by local government and Non- Government organizations is also carried out to find out suitable education modals for rural human resource development in this area. The course organizing and curriculum building, teachers and instructors recruitment, financial and capital support solutions are proposed in this article.

Abstract: Governments of the countries around the world have started utilizing the potential of technology to deliver online information and services to their citizens. Using ICT in the form of e-governance could yield great benefits in the reform and modernization of the public sector. The experience of e-governance in a number of developed and developing countries has shown that ICT can be a tool for greater service delivery with the goal of improving service quality. E-governance can also promote good govern-ance, that is, greater civic engagement can increase opportunities for direct representation and voice, and support for increased democracy. This paper discusses and presents the survey findings that seek to test the role of e-governance in improving service delivery by altering the principal-agent relationship. It further seeks to elucidate the quality aspects of public service. Strong leadership is required to implement e-governance to capture and internalize the benefits of quality services and satisfied customers. Questionnaires distributed to different groups of respondents using stratified random sampling. The results indicate that e-governance has the potential to improve service delivery and customer satisfaction. It is also confirmed through the findings in this research that the expectations of citizens from public services are quite high, but experience has often been negative i.e. there is a huge variance in the perception and expectation of normal citizens in the country regarding service delivery, quality of services. This has negatively affected customer satisfaction over the number of years. E-governance should be seen as a means of improving service quality in the future.

Abstract: Business has to fight for every dollar when times get tight and the economy slows to a halt. On top of all of this, they also have to make sure all their figures are right, comply with all the laws, and follow guidelines to properly maintain a legal business. Doing all of these tasks can be difficult but are manageable if a small business takes the right paths, makes the right decisions, and works hard enough. Small businesses have many barriers but with many hurdles overcome these business can succeed. Although business competition is exceedingly harmful to businesses themselves, we should all be glad that we as consumers can reap the benefits.Monitoring, understanding and adapting to the political environment is absolutely essential for any business, because it significantly affects every business.

Abstract: Beneficial microorganisms used as biofertilizers enhance seed germination and vigour through breaking seed dormancy and hormonal effects. However, their higher production of hormones like indole acetic acid (IAA) result low seed germination. Therefore, they need a regulation of the IAA production for increased plant growth. Such control exists in developed fungal-bacterial biofilms (FBBs), fungal surface-attached bacterial communities. Therefore, present study compares two FBBs and their seven bacterial monoculture counterparts for IAA production and seed germination with maize as the test plant. Results showed that two biofilms increased seed germination and vigour significantly compared to the monocultures whereas, relatively low IAA concentrations, which were comparable with lower limit of the monocultures. IAA production of monocultures was related negatively to seedling vigour, confirming that relatively low IAA concentrations are more favorable for seed germination. Thus, results suggested a regulatory mechanism for optimizing IAA concentration, and/or factors other than IAA for plant growth benefits in the case of biofilms. In conclusion, it is clear that the FBBs differ from bacterial monocultures in regulating improved seed germination and plant growth. Consequently, FBBs warrant formulating biofertilizers in the biofilm mode for futuristic agriculture.

Abstract: Despite of extensive deforestation and land use changes in India, one of the most resilient features of the country’s landscape is the temple or sacred forests. Because of their ‘divine’ protection, a number of tree species that have otherwise been heavily extracted from the forests continue to exist in the groves. However in recent years with the erosion of religious faith and encroachment of these sacred groves, there is a growing concern if the groves indeed can offer a refugium to the endemic and endangered species of the Chhattisgarh state. In this context, we examined the population genetic structure and genetic diversity of Chhattisgarh state, a canopy tree species in sacred groves of varying sizes.

Abstract: Our surrounding is filled up with a large number of toxicants in different forms. They contaminate our water, land and atmosphere where we live. Heavy metal pollution of soil is a significant environmental problem and has its negative impact on human health and agriculture. Rhizosphere, as an important interface of soil and plant, plays a significant role in phytoremediation of contaminated soil by heavy metals, in which, microbial populations are known to affect heavy metal mobility and availability to the plant through release of chelating agents, acidification, phosphate solubilization and redox changes. Phytoremediation of toxic heavy metals could be carried out by using specific metallophytes. Green plants are the lungs of nature with unique ability to purifying impure air by photosynthesis and remove or minimize heavy metals toxicity from soil and water ecosystem by absorption, accumulation and biotransformation process. This article paper reviews some recent advances in effect and significance of rhizobacteria in phytoremediation of heavy metal toxicity in contaminated soils. There is also a need to improve our understanding of the mechanisms involved in the transfer and mobilization of heavy metals by rhizobacteria and to conduct research on the selection of microbial isolates from Rhizosphere of plants growing metal contaminated soils for specific restoration programmes.

Abstract: Financial inclusion i.e., access to adequate and timely credit, and other financial services is of utmost importance for socio-economic development of poor and unbanked sections. It enables them to alleviate their poverty levels through self-employment generation and promotes them as a part of rural banking system. Accordingly, Indian Government is being initiated various financial measures in the banking sector, and different microfinance models have been playing an active role in providing microfinance and other financial services to the rural poor. However, despite these efforts, a large number of social groups remained excluded from the basic opportunities and services provided by the formal financial sector. In these circumstances, as a part of financial inclusion drive, Indian government with the help of Reserve Bank of India (RBI), has come up with a new model in the realm of banking sector, called as Business Correspondent (BC) model. This model primarily aims at providing affordable banking facility to the hitherto unbanked population with the help of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) based application and capacity building. Against this backdrop, this paper attempts to introduce the concept of financial inclusion and highlights its need. It briefly reviews the Indian banking sector and reports the level of financial exclusion in India. In the second part, it provides a brief understanding on Business Correspondent model and emphasizes how BC model could significantly helps in promoting financial inclusion of the hitherto excluded population. It concludes by emphasizing some of the operational challenges in its functioning and suggests a way forward.

Abstract: The continuous dependency of man on fuel wood and service wood results in serious degradation of the forest in Kanker forest division. A study on the consumption trends of fuel wood & their impact on forest were carried out in Chivranj & Ichchhapur village of Kanker forest division of Chhattisgarh, and its rural environs. Results show that the villagers of Kanker are highly dependent on fuel wood for cooking purpose. In tribal village fuel wood are sold in the form of wood lots which contains about 20-30 kg fuel wood & averagely pricing about Rs. 110/ lots. Price value of these fuel woods varies from Rs. 20-30 according to their traders & fuel wood species. The rural population works under the community forest policy, but illegal harvesting in natural forests is indiscriminate and results in severe environmental degradation. This paper calls for some basic recommendations & guideline on sustainable management of these fuel woods & for reducing pressure on fuel wood consumption.

Abstract: Depression has now become an universal health problem and the outcome of such disorder is physical, psychological, mental and social problems. Several studies have shown that depression results in impairment in the quality of life leading to decreased work performance, The purpose of this study is to find out the association between the levels of depression by scoring systems and the degree of impairment with the quality of life. This prospective study was carried out as part of a doctoral research in a prominent yoga centre in the city from January 2012 to July 2013. 34 subjects, both males and females in the age group 18 – 60 years, who sought yoga treatment for depression, who scored greater than 8 points with Becks depression inventory and signed informal consent were enrolled for this study. The quality of life score were collected using SF – 36 questionnaire. Becks depression scores and demographic details were used for statistical analysis using SPSS version 17.0 software. Pearson correlation coefficient analysis gave r values of -0.582 and -0.585 between depression and physical and mental health respectively and the p values was < 0.05 for both parameters. This study shows that quality of life is significantly affected by depression. The negative correlation reveals that the quality of life decreases as depression increases and mental health is more affected than physical health.

Abstract: Text sequences are ubiquitous, multiple text sequence are often related to each other by sharing common topics. The interactions among these sequences provide more information to derive more meaningful topics. Discovering valuable knowledge from a text sequence involves extracting topics from the sequence with both semantic and temporal information. The method is relied on a fundamental assumption that different sequences are always synchronous in time. The documents from different sequences on the same topic have different time stamp and there is no guarantee that the articles covering the same topic are indexed by the same time stamps. The key idea is to introduce a generative topic model for utilizing correlation between the semantic and temporal information in the sequences. Topic model is mainly focused on extracting a set of common topics from given sequences using their original time stamps. It performs topic extraction and time synchronization alternatively to optimize a unified objective function. A local optimum is guaranteed with the proposed method.

Abstract: Coded OFDM is a transmission technique that is used in many practical communication systems. In a coded OFDM system, source data are coded, interleaved and multiplexed for transmission over many frequency sub-channels. In a conventional coded OFDM system, the transmission power of each subcarrier is the same regardless of the channel condition. However, some subcarrier can suffer deep fading with multi-paths and the power allocated to the faded subcarrier is likely to be wasted. In this paper, we compute the FER and BER bounds of a coded OFDM system given as convex functions for a given channel coder, inter-leaver and channel response. The power optimization is shown to be a convex optimization problem that can be solved numerically with great efficiency. With the proposed power optimization scheme, near-optimum power allocation for a given coded OFDM system and channel response to minimize FER or BER under a constant transmission power constraint is obtained.

Abstract: The history of early Indian trade also shows a distinct preference for the study of long-distance trade-both over land and overseas –the study of exports and imports, especially their possible identifications on a modern map. The other common feature in this historiography is to present urban centers almost invariably as thriving commercial canters and to hold commercial exchanges as the principal causative factor towards urbanization. Without belittling the importance of this conventional narrative approach to the history of trade; it must be emphasized that an understanding of trade and urban centers can hardly be delinked from the agrarian sector. Significantly enough, the expansion “agro-cities” has been used to characterize early Indian urban centers. The trade between Andhra and Roman Empire, Andhra was the much beneficiary compare with Rome. Because of this trade Buddhism, urban centers were flourished in that period.

Abstract: Power generation is done through various methods, some of which uses Renewable energy sources and some use Non Renewable Energy Resources. But all this methods can be used to produce the Electrical energy only for some extent. The energy generated from Renewable sources is also not continuous throughout the day for 24hrs.Therefore a source through which energy can be harvested continuously for 24hrs is to be found. Gravity is the force that is present on the earth at every instant of time, hence with suitable mechanism it can be used as a source to generate Electrical energy. An arrangement is made in such a way that the Kinetic Energy of a body due to the gravitational force is converted into electrical energy.

Abstract: Background: Knowledge of the weight of the foetus in utero is important for the obstetricians to decide the time and mode of delivery. It can be estimated clinically, biochemically or by radiological imaging .None of the diagnostic tools are direct .Interestingly clinically estimated foetal weight is being found more precise than radiological estimation Aim:. This study was designed to find the error percentage in ultrasound and clinical methods. We also studied the research papers on the role of ultrasound and MRI in the diverse strata of birth weights. Results: The average error in all the weight groups except in >3500 grams group was least with Dares Formula, closely followed by Hadlocks Ultrasound Method. Average error in the >3500 grams group was least with Johnsons formula. For birth weight below 3500 grams clinical estimation by Dares Formula gave the least average absolute error while in birth weights above 3500 grams clinical estimation by Johnson’s Formula gave the least average absolute error. Dares Formula had a tendency to underestimate the foetal weight and had least error in <3500 grams group. Johnsons and Ultrasound method overestimated the foetal weight. Ultrasound methods showed advantage in intrauterine growth restricted and macrosomic babies. MRI is important to detect central fat deposition in babies of diabetic and hypothyroid mothers. Conclusion: The abdominal girth multiplication by symphysiofundal height can be a great concern in developing countries. It is easy and simple and can be used by even by midwives. Ultrasound may be reserved to detect abnormal blood flow in umbilical arteries in growth restricted babies and detecting central fat deposition in clinically macrosomic babies. This would ensure a better use of clinical and diagnostic modalities available to us

Abstract: Big Data is characterized by increasing volume and velocity of data.IBM estimates that every day 2.5 quintillion bytes of data are created – so much that 90% of the data in the world today has been created in the last two years. The traditional data-intensive sciences such as astronomy, high energy physics, meteorology, genomics, biological and environmental research in which peta- and Exabyte of data are generated are common domain examples. Here even the capture and storage of the data is a challenge. Google implemented hundreds of special-purpose computations that process large amounts of raw data, such as crawled documents, Web request logs, etc., to compute various kinds of derived data, such as inverted indices, various representations of the graph structure of Web documents, summaries of the number of pages crawled per host, and the set of most frequent queries in a given day. In this paper big data that is navigating in years from the past to present and to the future is analyzed. To address the problem space of unstructured analytics, Map Reduce with Hadoop distributed File System (HDFS) is also discussed. To process terabytes of data efficiently on daily basis some of tools and techniques available and challenges, issues and benefits of big data is also listed.

Abstract: The high molecular weight poly (ethylene oxide) was used to synthesize telechelic bromine terminated poly (ethylene oxide) polymers. The low molecular weight polystyrene anion was generated by living anionic polymerization by controlling monomer/initiator ratio. The living polystyrene anion was reacted with telechelic bromine terminated poly (ethylene oxide) polymers to obtain water soluble polystyrene-b-poly(ethylene oxide)-b-polystyrene tri-block copolymers. The effect of polystyrene-b-poly(ethylene oxide)-b-polystyrene (PS-b-PEO-b-PS) block copolymer on the mild steel corrosion in 1M sulfuric acid solution has been investigated at various inhibitor concentrations and temperatures by Potentiodynamic Polarization Study. The investigated results showed that the corrosion rate decreased significantly with increase in the concentration of inhibitors. The shape of polarization profiles of the polymer at various concentrations indicated their mixed-type nature of inhibition.

Abstract: Extensive and indiscriminate use of synthetic compounds and natural compounds obtained from plant sources have resulted into serious threats to not only the aquatic ecosystem but also to human health. Aqueous seed extract of the plant Croton tiglium L. is used in many traditional medicines to treat various ailments in many developing countries. The extract is also used for killing fishes for consumption in Manipur, India. However, the side effects and safety measures are not well studied and evaluated. The present study aims to investigate major phytochemical constituents, acute toxicity and genotoxicity of the aqueous extract. The phytochemical screening was carried out using chemical methods; acute toxicity test was performed using zebrafish as a model organism and genotoxicity potential was evaluated by in vitro plasmid DNA fragmentation analysis. Our results show that the exposure of aqueous extracts of Croton tiglium cause increase plasmid DNA strand breakage in a dose dependent manner. The aqueous extract of Croton tiglium also showed pisicidal activity. So, the plant extract need to be evaluated for its long term human health hazards and safety thoroughly before it could be used for therapeutic medicinal interventions.

Abstract: Due to the continuous change in load, the frequency and tie-line power of control areas get disturbed from their scheduled value which is undesirable. Automatic Generation Control (AGC) is an essential mechanism in electric power systems which balance generated power and demand in each control area in order to maintain the system frequency at nominal value and tie-line power at its scheduled value. This necessitates an accurate and fast acting controller to maintain constant nominal frequency. The limitations of conventional controllers i.e. Integral (I), Proportional Integral (PI) are slow and lack of efficiency in handling system errors. This paper proposes Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) technique for AGC of two-area interconnected power system. Firstly, the conventional controllers i.e. Integral (I), Proportional Integral (PI) are used for AGC of two-area interconnected power system. Then PSO based controllers are used and various responses due to various controllers have been compared. The responses of the proposed methods are demonstrated by MATLAB simulations.

Abstract: India is a country which is best known for its culture and tradition. Tribal groups are homogeneous, culturally firm and they wish to survive in their own style. Irular tribes of Tamil Nadu occupy the second largest groups of tribes after the Badgas. They are situated at the base of the western ghat. The road which takes us to the village is undeveloped and rocky. The huts are little developed into houses with cement sheet. Unlike the earlier tribal people, 21st century tribes have normal dress code like other people. The major occupation of these tribal people is field work as farmers. Neither hospital nor any other medical facility is available with in 15 Kms. There is a government school situated about three to four kilometers away from the village premises. When the girls attain their puberty, there will be seven days celebration at their houses. The marriage is not considered as an important custom of the villagers. Death is considered as an important ritual in this community. The irular tribes are mostly non vegetarians. It can be concluded that the tribal people of India need still more improvement in all walks of their lives.

Abstract: Extrapontine myelinosis (EPM) is a common co-occurrence with central pontine myelinosis in head injury and alcohol withdrawal where hyponatremia may be the precipitating cause. There are not many treatment options available in these cases except a supportive management. We describe here a case of head injury under the influence of alcohol that also displayed EPM without hyponatremia after alcohol withdrawal in a chronic alcoholic that responded very well to cerebroprotein therapy.

Abstract: 2D projections of the real 3D space are the only available information in the imaging technics like in X- Ray and MRI. In this paper we study projections of images as generated by Radon transformation. We implemented an image reconstruction algorithm which receives different projections of the original image as input. We performed this experiment using artificially created image in order to test and verify the algorithm. The quality of images reconstructed by an algorithm is most prominent to check. So in this paper, we performed analysis on head phantom MRI image by calculating correlation coefficient, Cutoff rotation angle for an image and linearity of correlation coefficient.

Abstract: Wireless sensor network consists of spatially distributed sensor nodes which sense physical and environmental condition like sound, pressure, temperature etc and pass the data to the main location through the network. In WSN network life time and node energy efficiency are two most important terms. One major issue in wireless sensor networks is developing an energy-efficient routing protocol which has a significant impact on the overall lifetime of the sensor network. Clustering based Energy efficient LEACH (Low-Energy Adaptive Clustering Hierarchy) protocol can effectively increase WSN performance by dynamically changing cluster head. This paper surveys working of LEACH protocol, its limitations and advancements done in LEACH to improve its performance.

Abstract: Scheduled Tribes in India are generally considered to be Adivasis, meaning indigenous people or original inhabitants of the country. The tribes have been confined to low status and are often physically and socially isolated instead of being absorbed in the mainstream Hindu population. Psychologically, the Scheduled Tribes often experience passive indifference that may take the form of exclusion from educational opportunities, social participation, and access to their own land. All tribal communities are not alike. They are products of different historical and social conditions.

Abstract: Environmental crisis is real. Now the time has come when we should be careful. If human society has to endure not just for another centaury but thousands and thousands of years, we need to imbecile a way of life that can be sustained. The growth of human beings and plants life can only develop fully in friendly environment that is conclusive to growth. Since, the present problems result largely from ignorance and different trend of continued misuse of the environment can, however, be altered by creating awareness among people of how man’s activities effect the environment for good or ill. We cannot expect improvement unless attitudes of people change and unless a better generations. Our great need of today is knowledgeable citizens who are conscious of their surrounding and willing to take necessary, social, economic and political steps to assure a better environment for the fulfillment of need and wants of every citizen on the earth. Keeping in view the importance of environment the present study was undertaken to study the awareness among students towards environmental education.

Abstract: Present paper studies the Economic Efficiency and Gain technologies. Most of the literature related to the measurement of economic efficiency has based its analysis either on parametric or on non-parametric Gain methods. This Article thus argues that, while Technique economy tends to be a powerful force, it is possible for concerns of Economic efficiency. The aim of this paper is to provide a critical and detailed review of both core Gain methods. In our opinion, no approach is strictly preferable to any other. Moreover, careful consideration of their main advantages and disadvantages, of the data set utilized, and of the intrinsic characteristics of the framework under analysis will help us in the correct implementation of these techniques. Recent developments in Gain techniques and economic efficiency measurement such as Bayesian techniques, bootstrapping, duality theory and the analysis of sampling asymptotic properties are also considered in this paper.

Abstract: One of the major development concerns in recent years, particularly in sub-Saharan African countries, has been the rapid growth of urban population coupled with low industrial growth. This mismatch has led to high unemployment levels as most companies have either scaled down or completely shut down. High poverty levels have intensified in urban areas and this has facilitated the mushrooming of the informal economy such as vending, operating tuck-shops and various micro enterprises as an adaptation strategy to failing economies. This study took a micro-level approach by exploring the role of the informal economy as a source livelihood in the city of Bulawayo.

Abstract: In several distributed systems using a certain set of attributes, a user should only be able to access data. Currently, the only method for enforcing such policies is to employ a trusted server to store the data. To keep the shared data confidential against any kind of misuse, a natural way is to store only the encrypted data in a cloud. The key problems of this approach include establishing access control for the encrypted data. Previous Attribute - Based Encryption systems used attributes to describe the encrypted data. While in our system attributes are used to describe a user’s credentials, and encrypting data determines a policy for who can decrypt.

Abstract: The use of supplementary information on auxiliary variables in sample surveys was extensively discussed by Cochran and Jessen. In their work they showed that regression estimator is superior to the other estimators (viz. ratio and mean per unit estimators etc.).This paper proposes a new kind of estimator based on appropriate weighing of the sample means of the main and the auxiliary variables. It is shown that the proposed estimator is more efficient when compared with the regression, ratio and the mean per unit estimator under certain restrictions on the correlation coefficient between main and the auxiliary variables.

Abstract: A Feature selection for the high dimensional data clustering is a difficult problem because the ground truth class labels that can guide the selection are unavailable in clustering. Besides, the data may have a broad number of features and the irrelevant ones can run the clustering. A novel feature weighting scheme is proposed, in which the weight for each feature is a measure of its contribution to the clustering task. A well defined objective function is given, which can be explicitly solved in an iterative way. A fast clustering-based feature selection algorithm (FAST) works in two steps. In the first step, graph-theoretic clustering methods are used to divide the features into clusters. In second step, the most nearest feature that is completely related to destination is chosen from each cluster to design a subset of features. Features in each cluster are independent. Efficiency of FAST is measured by using Minimum Spanning Tree (MST). Accuracy of image comparison is efficient by using semantic similarity algorithm.
