Abstract: The quality of forage affects consumption, nutrient intake, and the resulting animal performance. Voluntary intake of tree/shrub forages as affected by their pH levels was investigated using 24 heads of goats. Several forages were analyzed for their pH level and were categorized as low (3.25-4.50) medium (4.51-5.76) and high (5.76-up) pH levels. Two samples in each category were used and was set-up in a randomized complete block design (RCBD). Voluntary feed intake (VFI) was established by adding 20% of the days offering based on previous days intake. The six (6) forages tested were Kakawate (Gliricidia sepium), Madre de agua (Trichanthera gigantea), Acacia (Samanea saman), Gmelina (Gmelina arborea), Robles (Cassia siamea) and Santol (Sandoricum koetjape). Forages with high pH levels that approximate the ideal level of ruminal pH such as Kakawate and Madre de agua, followed by Gmelina, had significantly higher intakes of dry matter (DM) both in actual amount and as percent body weight, organic matter (OM) and neutral detergent fiber (NDF) than those with low pH levels. Voluntary intake of crude protein (CP) among forages tested appeared to be not dependent on pH level. High pH level forages appeared to have a great potential as ruminant feed showing high levels of voluntary intake.

Abstract: This paper analyses the implication of exchange rate depreciation and nominal interest rates on inflation in Ghana. It makes use of an autoregressive distributed lag model and an unrestricted error correction model. The results from the study show that in the short run a percentage point increase in the level of depreciation of the Ghana cedi leads to an increase in the rate of inflation by 0.20%. A percentage point increase in the level of nominal interest rates however results in a decrease in inflation by 0.98%. Inflation increases by 1.67% for every percentage point increase in the nominal interest rate in the long run. The study could not prove a significant long run relationship between exchange rate depreciation and inflation.

Abstract: Handloom sector is a major non-farm employer in the country. About 16 million weavers depend on this sector in the country. Handloom weaving is one of the most important nonagricultural sources of income in India. In the present paper an attempt has been made to analyse the economics of weavers’ cooperative societies in twelve selected districts of Assam. The study is based on a sample of 60 weavers’ cooperative societies. To find out the profile, production, marketing and financial management of weavers’ cooperative society’s primary and secondary data has also been collected. The study reveals that central and state governments have evolved many schemes to uplift the economic condition by providing incentives in the form of grants and loans to impart training on new designs, modernization of looms etc. But handloom weaving units continue to be in the grip of problems. Therefore the purpose of this paper is to familiarize with the current status of handloom Weavers’ Cooperative Societies.

Abstract: Health and hygiene status of a population group is one important indicator of human development. It is largely depends upon the physical quality of environment of a region. It is a matter of concern that the Hunan Development Indices (HDIs) of the Schedule Tribes population continue to be lower than the non tribal population in terms of all parameters such as, education, income, health & hygiene status etc. The tribal people are generally living close to nature and they are influenced more by traditional socio-cultural and environmental dimensions in their health practices. Moreover, the socio-cultural attributes differ from one tribe to another, which result in difference in the health- hygiene and demographic behaviours of different tribal groups.

Abstract: Theileriosis in crossbred cattle is caused by Theileria annulata and is known as ‘Bovine Tropical Theileriosis’ in tropics. The chief vector responsible for transmission is Hyalomma anatolicum anatolicum and other ticks species belonging to the said genera. The disease is now reported more frequently and is of major economic importance due to losses associated with morbidity, mortality, decreased production as well as lowered working efficiency of affected animals. The present study was undertaken to evaluate hematological as well as biochemical alterations in crossbred cattle infected with Theileria annulata in Banaskantha district of Gujarat state, India.

Abstract: Solar Photovoltaic system generates both electrical and thermal energy from solar radiation. In this work, an attempt has been made for evaluating thermal, electrical and exergy output of solar PV module (Tata BP 184459) at Energy Centre, MANIT Bhopal. Using the first law of thermodynamics, energy analysis was performed and Exergy analysis was carried out to determine exergy losses during the photovoltaic conversion process by applying the second law of thermodynamics. The operating and electrical parameters of a PV module includes module temperature, overall heat loss coefficient, open-circuit voltage, short-circuit current, fill factor, etc were experimentally determined for a typical hazy day (12 May 2014) at Bhopal. The experimental data are used for the calculation of the energy and exergy efficiencies of the PV module. Energy efficiency is seen to vary between 6% and 9% during the day. In contrast, exergy efficiency is lower for electricity generation using the considered PV module, ranging from 8% to 10%.

Abstract: Fuzzy systems are extensively used in both applied and experimental medicine and are one of the most prevalent subjects of today’s Medical Informatics. Despite some limitations of their use due to information, economical, educational and other reasons these systems are widely acknowledged in medical institutions operating in all levels of healthcare. The accuracy of some up-to-date fuzzy systems today matches the diagnostic abilities of physicians that are why it holds an important role in risk-assessment and diagnostics in pharmocology. In this paper, I have done work on the fever symptoms that help in the diagnosis of dengue fever symptoms with the help of some doctors on the basis of fuzzy rule system I tried to give a better identification of dengue fever on the sample based, on the lab features and clinical symptoms.

Abstract: Measuring the employee performance in the bank sector has become a vital policy tool for all bankers since it enhances the overall performance through applying different human resource practices. Recently, personality traits and emotional intelligence have become more accepted at the level of human resource researches especially in the growing banking sectors. However, the nature of relationship among these variables and other human resource practices is still under study especially in relation to the employee’s performance. This paper presents a conceptual framework including the human resource practices and its effect on the employee performance. It also suggests studying the mediating effect of personality traits as well as the moderating effect of emotional intelligence on this relationship

Abstract: Throughout the last century, riverine ecosystems have suffered from intense human intervention resulting in habitat loss and degradation and as a consequence, many fish species have become highly endangered, particularly in rivers where heavy demand is placed on fresh waters. River Achenkovil originating from the mighty Western Ghat mountain ranges reflecting the rich cultural heritage of Central Travancore is under the crushing pressure of environmental degradation caused by unprecedented human exploitation. A study has been conducted from February 2004 to January 2005 to document the fish diversity in the river system. A total of 52 species belonging to 5 orders and 18 families were collected. Cyprinidae was the most dominant family (68.50%) followed by Cichlidae (7.56%) and Ambassidae (6.73%). Results suggested that environmentalists and governmental agencies should pay responsiveness to protect the existing faunal wealth.

Abstract: This paper reviewsthe literaturerelated to quality of water for making concrete.The allowablelimitsof physical and chemical impurities and the test methods of their evolution are compiled.The limits of impurities as perIndian, Australian, American and British standardsarepresented. From the literature it is seen that, the reaction between water and cement affect the setting time, compressive strength and also lead to softening of concrete. All the impurities may not have adverse effect on the properties of concrete. The use of impure water for concrete mixing is seen to favorable for strength development at early ages and reduction in long term strength.

Abstract: In this paper we propose an efficient pipelined architecture for low power,high throughput and low area adaptive FIR filter based on distributed airthemetic. The throughput rate is significantly increased by parallel look-up table(LUT) update. Reduction in power consumption is achieved by using a fast bit clock for carry save accumulation. We have shown that sampling period could be sequentially reduced by using carry save accumulation for DA based inner product. It involves half the number of register compared to the existing DA based design to store of input samples. The system is implemented in FPGA that enables rapid prototyping of digital cirtcuits.

Abstract: Accident prevention is the key in effective Health, Safety and Environmental management system of any Organization. Understanding the pattern of accidents and ratios helps in preventing major accidents. The older theories on accident prevention have influenced the safety professionals to design accident prevention programs. However, over a period of time, rapid growth in industrials activities are challenging the theories. Hazards are different for different industries and hence resultant safety risks are not uniform. A need arisen to further review and interpret the accident patterns. This paper focused on reviewing and highlighting the gaps in interpretation of accident triangles with respect to Oil and Gas (upstream). How the Oil and Gas is interpreting the accident occurrence and evolving with preventive measures

Abstract: The right to food aims to bring about a change in the lives of millions of persons suffering from hunger. To ensure a world free from hunger this right needs to be justiciable . Justiciability means a mechanism which ensures every instance of violation of the right can be redressed by the judiciary or any quasi judicial organ. There are two sets of mechanism for the redressal of the right to food, one at the international level represented by the International Court of Justice and the United Nations treaty bodies and the other at the domestic level. At the international level the justiciability largely depends on the consent of the states while at the domestic level the legal frame work is highly inadequate. Therefore the international organisations and the Nation States needs to wake by to the sufferings of the hungry and starving population and take steps to make the right to food a truly justiciable right.

Abstract: Diversity has been established to be a compulsory imperative in Organizations today. Human Resource policies are being tweaked to accommodate a workforce who is diversified in a multitude of aspects including gender, which appears to be a popular variant in diversity. This study investigates the nuances of changing perceptions of people towards stereotypes of gender. The implication of gender based character is considered important in making assumptions about the behaviours of the gender. In this study, 440 respondents of various ages and occupations were contacted as primary data, to mark their perceptions of character associated with gender like aggression, domination and being excitable. The findings appear to be counter intuitive to popular stereotype perception where 34 per cent of women are considered aggressive, 35 per cent of women are considered dominating and 35 per cent of women are established to be excitable and volatile. These findings reflect the changing scenario and environment of female gender today which is being manifested in their non stereotype behaviour.

Abstract: T he hierarchy of urban settlements was first brought within the purview of geographical enquiries by G. K. Zipf in 1931, when he coined the term Central Places. The concept of Central Places was further developed by Walter Christaller in his monumental work on “Central Places in Southern Germany (1933)”. The theory postulates that to maintain efficiency of the settlements, the number of hierarchical central goods and services (functions) fall into categories. The theory is based on a distinction between centres, which are the seats of a supply of goods and services, and peripheries (regions complementing the centre) where demand, i.e. population using them, resides. The notion of centrality justifies clustering in a same place production of service of same level and of same range intended at the population which is scattered in the complementary region (or influence area), whose customers are polarised by the centre.

Abstract: Poor product performance is one of the major causes for its market failure. They tend to have their roots in inadequately drafted Non-Functional Requirements (NFRs), poor architectural and design decisions, and inadequate NFR testing practices right from the beginning. Performance, reliability, and availability considerations must be built into the system from the time it is conceived.

Abstract: Microorganisms play a significant role in bioremediation of heavy metal contaminated soil and wastewater. In this study heavy metal resistant fungi were isolated from the waste water treated soil samples of Hudiara drain, Lahore. The optimum pH and temperature conditions for heavy metal removal were determined for highly tolerant isolates of Aspergillus species along with the initial metal concentration and contact time. Biosorption capacity of Aspergillus flavus and Aspergillus niger was checked against Cu (II) and Pb (II) respectively. The optimal pH was 8-9 for A. flavus and 4-5.4 for A. niger, whereas the optimal temperature was 26°C and 37°C respectively. Moreover, the biosorption capacity of A. flavus was 20.75-93.65 mg/g for Cu (II) with initial concentration 200-1400 ppm. On the other hand the biosorption capacity of A. niger for Pb (II) ranged from 3.25-172.25 mg/g with the same range of initial metal concentration. It was also found that equilibrium was maintained after maximum adsorption.

Abstract: Present study was focused on intake of duckweed by chicks and to evaluate the growth performance and carcass characteristics of chicks. A total number of 106 chicks were allocated to 3 treatments with 3 replicates. The treatments were categorized into group A (25% duckweed and 75% commercial feed), group B (50% duckweed and 50% commercial feed) and group C (100% commercial feed). Results showed that crude protein was higher in group B followed by group A while in group C crude protein was lower but total feed intake, average weight, live weight, meat and bone weight, skin weight, head weight, liver weight, intestine weight and shank weight were higher as compared to group A and group B and this was due to the fluffy nature of duckweed and small size of crop. It was concluded that sewage grown duckweed can be successfully utilized as poultry feed. Chicks can survive on duckweed and farmer can save money. This is the first study in Pakistan.

Abstract: Jhilmil Jheel is a saucer shape wetland and is one of the most important wetland of Haridwar district (Uttrakhand, India) and also happens to be a conservation reserve for swamp deer (Cervus duvauceli duvauceli) declared in 2005. Consequently highly fragmented sections of swamp deer habitat remain few and far between, and Jhilmil Jheel happens to be the last refugee for this magnificent and highly endangered species. Wetlands are considered one of the highly productive ecosystems in the world and provide a potential sink for the atmospheric carbon. Therefore, a study was conducted to estimate the soil organic carbon (SOC) pool in Jhilmil Jheel wetland under different land uses i.e., grassland, plantation and natural forest in different seasons i.e., autumn, winter, spring and summer. The results revealed that in autumn season, SOC pool in grassland was maximum (81.38 t ha-1) followed by natural forest (76.85 t ha-1) and the least was in plantation (55.95 t ha-1), in winter season, the SOC pool in natural forest was maximum (131.31 t ha-1) followed by plantation (123.78 t ha-1) and the least was in grassland (72.92 t ha-1), in spring season, the SOC pool in natural forest was maximum (170.46 t ha-1) followed by plantation (155.133 t ha-1) and the least was in grassland (73.17 t ha-1) and in summer season, the SOC pool in natural forest was maximum (123.89 t ha-1) followed by plantation (114.61 t ha-1) and the least was in grassland (64.73 t ha-1) respectively.

Abstract: MicroRNAs are RNAs of 21-22 nucleotides in length that are known as negative regulators of gene expression. By its molecular mode of action, have been described important biological roles in the development and physiology of plants, animals and fungi. In the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana, the miRNAs perform essential functions such as juvenile-adult transition, morphogenesis of leaves and response to biotic and abiotic factors. At genomic structure, sequencing studies demonstrate that miRNA genes are similar to genes encoding proteins. Thus, the MIR genes have promoters directing their expression in specific tissues. In this work, we cloned and characterized the promoter activity of miRNA858 in Arabidopsis. The transgenic lines generated show that miRNA858 promoter is active mainly in flower, this expression activity suggest that miRNA858 has functions in this tissue. This result is a first approximation for to know the biological role of miRNA858 in Arabidopsis thaliana.

Abstract: Using the Calderon-Rossell model modified, this paper examines the macroeconomic factors that affect the stock market development in Cameroon. We find that: stock market liquidity and financial openness represented by foreign direct investment and private capital flows are important determinants of stock exchange development in Cameroon. Contrary to the results found in many other African States, Economic Growth and the Banking sector development still do not have a positive and significant impact in the Stock Market development of Cameroon.

Abstract: Familial hyperaldosteronism type 1, also called glucocorticoid – remediable aldosteronism (GRA) is a rare autosomal dominant disorder associated with variable degrees of hyperaldosteronism, high levels or hybrid steroids (e.g., hydroxycortisol, 18 – oxocortisol), that are suppressed with administration of glucocorticoids. A 14 year old female presented with weakness of sudden onset in all four limbs. On examination she is found to be hypertensive and investigations revealed hypokalemia with elevated aldosterone levels and suppressed plasma renin activity leading to a diagnosis of GRA. Suppression of ACTH release with exogenous dexamethasone is a useful diagnostic and therapeutic strategy. Treatment with the mineral corticoid receptor antagoinsts spironolactone and epleronone is also efficacious.

Abstract: Evaluating the contact center agent’s voice handling skills is important in order to enhance the customer satisfaction, through employee performance. Conventionally, supervisors in call center monitoring divisions listen to contact center agents’ conversations and then assign scores for the voice of the agent which end up in most cases bias and as erroneous evaluations. In order to minimize the above mentioned problems, this paper discusses a system, we implemented to evaluate contact center agents’ voices automatically avoiding human error and bias decisions. This software application considers speech rate, voice intensity level and emotional state of the contact center agent for their voice handling evaluations. According to the conducted research, it can be seen that the accuracy of evaluating the giving of instructions clearly using speech rate is 72%, evaluating listener comfortable voice intensity of agent is 83% and accuracy of emotion recognition of the agent’s is 83% in the implemented system.

Abstract: The photon splitting of an UV into entangled pair of different wavelengths using non-linear crystals is a complicated procedure in the quantum authentication process (QAP) as presented in the six states deterministic protocol (6DP). A simplified process is proposed; the photon splitting process is replaced with basic polarization splitting of a single wavelength in the visible range. The quantum states are prepared, as usual, using retardation wave-plates. The transmitting station sends to the receiver a sequence of random polarized pulses via a quantum channel. The receiver blindly flips the quantum states using half wave-plate before sending back to the transmitter. The transmission of quantum states is made within a secret time interval which, based on preset path length and pulse travel time, triggers the detection device, and eventually achieves authentication after two more iterations.

Abstract: Information extraction plays an important role in text related research and application areas such as text mining and dialogue systems. Information extraction can be done using key word extraction and measuring the semantic similarity between texts. These concepts are applied to address a key issue in the telecommunication contact centre domain where the customer dissatisfaction is increasing due to higher call handling time. The proposed method is a combined with a key word based approach and a sematic similarity based approach with the use of semantic nets. The semantic similarity of two sentences is calculated using word similarity and the word order. Experiments on two sets of sentence pairs illustrates that proposed method provides a similar measure which is significantly correlated to human intuition.

Abstract: Present work deals with the combination of automatic generation control (AGC) with automatic voltage regulator control (AVR) and the implementation of PI, PID and fuzzy logic controller for two area system. The purpose of the AGC is for balancing the system’s total generation against system load and losses. If any mismatch between generation and demand occur the system frequency may deviate from preset value. Thus, high value of frequency deviation may lead to failure of the system. The role of AVR is to hold terminal voltage magnitude of the generator at a preset level. The interaction between frequency deviation and voltage deviation is analyzed and studied in this paper.

Abstract: In the 21st Century, human population is experiencing the manmade plague of environmental noise from which there is virtually no escape, no matter where we are - in our homes and yards, on our streets, in our cars, at theaters, restaurants, parks, arenas, and in other public places. There are many factors, both emotional and physical, which contribute to the variation in human reaction to response. The existence of these variables prohibits defining an exact individual and community response. Exposure to noise induces fatigue, depressed mood and well-being, and decreased performance. Decreased alertness leading to accidents, injuries, and death has also been attributed to lack of sleep and disrupted circadian rhythms. Noise during sleep causes increased blood pressure, increased heart rate, increased pulse amplitude, vasoconstriction, and changes in respiration, cardiac arrhythmias, and increased body movement.

Abstract: Cloud Computing enables customers with limited computational resources to outsource their large computation workloads to cloud, and economically enjoy the massive computational power, bandwidth, storage, and even appropriate software that can be shared in a pay-per-use manner. Security is the primary obstacle that prevents the wide adoption of this promising computing model, especially for customers when their confidential data are consumed and produced during the computation. Treating the cloud as an intrinsically insecure computing platform from the viewpoint of the cloud customers, we must design mechanisms that not only protect sensitive information by enabling computations with encrypted data, but also protect customers from malicious behaviors by enabling the validation of the computation result.

Abstract: Cells are building blocks of living things. Normal cells multiply when body needs them and die when body doesn’t need them. Cancer appears to occur when the growth of the cell in the body is out of control and cells divide too quickly. In cancer cells display uncontrolled multiplication, invasion and metastasis and caused by abnormalities in genetic material of transformed cells. Samples of microarray experiments performed on homo sapiens of normal and cancerous cells were downloaded from GEO database and these samples were imported to CLC Main Workbench software and expression analysis is performed to identify and rank common differentially expressed Genes in multiple type of cancer, by using technique called DNA Microarray data analysis which is used to find out expression of large number of genes simultaneously and it provides invaluable information on disease pathology, progression, resistance to treatment and therapeutic approaches for cancer. These genes found are useful for drug design as they act as biomarkers and also can be used in further analysis of fundamental signal transduction pathways that lead to carcinomas, since most genes causes cancer which are responsible for causing other cancer e.g. gene causing breast cancer have chances of casing ovarian cancer hence by finding such genes prevention of getting multiple cancer can be done.

Abstract: In the present work ZnO nanoparticles are prepared by sol gel process and doped with 6 % Aluminium . Inherently conducting PPY-ZnO (Al doped ) nanocomposites were synthesized with varying amount of Al – doped ZnO via in-situ polymerization. These composites were characterized by FT-IR, XRD, TGA, and DSC. The FT-IR results show broadening and shifts of peaks towards lower wave number in all composite samples suggesting better conjugation and some chemical interaction between polypyrrole and zinc oxide nanoparticles. DSC and TGA data suggest that PPY- ZnO( Al-doped ) nano composites have high thermal stability due to better conformation and compactness and reduction of grain boundary volume with the loading of Al-doped zinc oxide nanoparticles, that increase the conductivity of composites.. The X-RD analysis demonstrated the amorphous nature of polypyrrole and its composites with Al- doped nanoparticles of ZnO as well no indication of crystalline peaks.

Abstract: The recent surge of lawsuits against companies for the discrimination of employees under 40, as well as the lack of literature regarding the subject of legal age discrimination warranted this study regarding the effects of ageism on affective commitment. The study explores the concept of the similar-to-my-children effect in regards to workplace commitment and age discrimination. A 25 item questionnaire was distributed to a convenient sample of workers. Evidence of self reported legal age discrimination experiences were found among workers whose age category fell outside the protected age group marked by the ADEA. No relationship was found between experiences of reverse age discrimination and affective commitment. The respondents who reported that they had been told by their supervisors or co-workers that they reminded the supervisor or coworker of their children or younger siblings reported substantially more reverse age discrimination than their peers who had not experienced the comparison.

Abstract: Increasing use of World Wide Web and communication channels like mobile networking has increased the number of images used throughout the world. Continuing advancements in both hardware and software coupled with higher image processing and image vision tools, have made it possible to store huge amount of images. This increase in number of images and image databases has necessitated the need for image mining. The extension of data mining into the image domain is known as image mining. It is an interdisciplinary endeavour that draws upon expertise in computer vision, image processing, image retrieval, data mining, machine learning, database, and artificial intelligence. Rather than the development of many algorithms and applications in various research fields, image mining is still rarely untouched area. It mainly comprises of faster image retrieval and quality of the retrieved image. The extraction of implicit knowledge, image data relationship, and similar type of patterns may be the possible candidature to speed up the process of image retrieval. The proper combination and parameterization of these attributes can help out to retrieve better images at short point in time. This paper incorporates such two algorithms namely- hierarchical and k-means to have a good quality image retrieval at efficient pace.

Abstract: Robust streaming of video over 802.11 WLANs poses many challenges, including packets losses caused by network buffer overflow or link erasures, time-varying wireless channel and video content characteristics etc. To improve the performance of real-time video transmission over 802.11 WLANs, the use of cross layer design approach is required which allows communication between layers by permitting one layer to access the data of another layer, thereby facilitating the exchange of information. One of such design approach includes Application (APP) and Medium Access Control (MAC) layers considerations and is explored in this paper. This study focuses on H.264/MPEG4-AVC, the most widely accepted video coding standard and provides better quality compressed video and flexibility in compressing and transmitting video at APP layer and the retry limit settings of the MAC layer can be optimized in such a way that the overall packet losses are minimized. In this paper, the proposed Top-Down cross-layer design involves the mapping of H.264 video slices (packets) to appropriate access categories of IEEE 802.11e according to their information significance.

Abstract: This paper focuses on segmenting human from photo images. It has found several applications like album making, photo classification and image retrieval. The result can be further applied to many useful applications like part recognition which can be further applied to gesture analysis as well as in tracking. Segmenting human from photo images is still a challenge because of numerous real world factors like shading, image noise, occlusions, and background clutter and also because of great variability of shapes, poses, clothes etc. Previous works on human segmentation requires shape-matching processes. In this paper, we propose a simple method to automatically recover human bodies from photos. We use some haar cascades to detect human body that is haar cascade_upperbody and haar cascade_lowerbody which helps in performing upperbody and lower body segmentation. We need to perform CT (coarse torso) detection using MCTD algorithm for accurate upper body segmentation. Lower body is then extracted accurately using MOH based graph-cut algorithm. Experimental results show that, the proposed algorithm works well on VOC 2006 and VOC 2010 data set for segmenting person with various poses. Thus achieving high performance compared to conventional methods.

Abstract: An experimental study was performed to investigate the lift and drag coefficient of multiple wing. Most of the previous works carried out to increase the lift force and reduce the drag force having the more efficient and effective design. The aim of this project is to investigate the effect of multiple wings on lift and drag force. To perform this investigation a model of multiple wings is constructed and experiments were conducted in subsonic wind tunnel. The model of NACA 0012 symmetric airfoil with chord length of 21cm, maximum thickness 0.12cm, span length 21cm was selected for tri- plane configurations. The aerodynamic characteristics were examined placing multiple wings 12cm apart at low speed condition with various angles of attack like 0, 5,10,15,20 degrees for all the tri plane configurations. The ideal and experimental lift and drag coefficient is measured based on the experimental data. From this experimental investigation it shows that the coefficient of pressure and lift, both are increased with the angle of attack, on the other hand, drag coefficient is slightly decreased.

Abstract: Leather and Styrofoam are very common figures in our day to day life, as a result a large amount of worn leather and used Styrofoam are thrown away as wastes. These wastes take a long time to biodegrade. So these play a vital role in environmental pollution. But if these wastes are further processed by pyrolysis, valuable energy such as pyrolytic oil, char and gas can be obtained which can meet the crisis of energy. In this project a simple pyrolysis system is introduced with a fixed bed reactor, two condensers, and two outlet pipes, in which the waste leather and Styrofoam are processed to obtain fuels. The shredded leathers and Styrofoam are fed into the reactor and heated up to a fixed temperature. The condensation process is carried out during the passage of the gas (volatile material) formed due to heating the shredded wastes to form pyrolytic fuel. Further different properties of the fuel such as density, viscosity, Calorific Value, boiling point and flash point are determined and a comparison between leather and Styrofoam with diesel and gasoline were made. From the observations it has noticed that, the properties of the pyrolytic oils obtained from leather and Styrofoam don’t fully match with the properties of diesel and gasoline. The Styrofoam can be used as a fuel by further processing but the oil from leather cannot be used as a fuel but can be used as lubricant in the engine.

Abstract: Leap protocol offers many security benefits to WSNs. However, with much research it became apparent that LEAP only employs one base station and always assumes that it is trustworthy. It does not consist of defence against hacked or compromised base stations. In this paper, intensive research was undertaken on LEAP protocols, finding out its security drawbacks and limitations. One of the biggest concerns of WSNs is that they are very defenceless to security threats. One of the biggest concerns of WSNs is that they are very defenceless to security threats. Due to the fact that these networks are susceptible to hackers; it is possible for one to enter and render a network.A solution has been proposed in order to overcome the security issues faced in implementing this protocol whilst employing more than one base station. The performance of the proposed solution has been evaluated and simulated to provide a better network performance.

Abstract: Ethnicity as a major springboard of identity politics has significantly affected the Republic of Djibouti since 1960s as Colonial rule, the Cold War and regional politics contributed to widen the rift of ethnic cleavage between Afar and Issa. The mobilization of Afars, the minority one, in the early 1990s faced with a heavy handed repression of the Issa dominated government which makes even the power sharing peace negotiation of 1993 less satisfactory. The power sharing scheme of the government was considered as a political contrivance of coopting Afar political figures for dumping the just claim of Afars which is so deep , and the conflict went on. This had exerted pressure on the government to make constitutional concessions of recognizing the plurality of Djibouti. However, from the perspective of accommodation an ethnic demand which has sustained for long, the constitutional and political adjustments are less adequate. The republican principles of the constitution which pushes aside group rights for ethnic groups leaves the plurality reading of the constitution limited to recognition. The constitution have not provide for structures of home-rule for the Afar ethnic group as the inadequacy of power sharing made before provide a reasonable expectation to move on the direction of territorial autonomy. Decentralization as a usual convenient model of meeting ethno-territorial self-rule while retaining the territorial integrity of a state has gotten a limited application in the Djiboutian Constitution. Nevertheless, the possible pathologies of a dyadic form of federal system needs to be assessed as to its workability in the case in point since it may render a bipolarized state with characterized with a deadlock political system. Moreover, the issue of democratic credibility has also exacerbated the mutual suspension between Afars and Issas.
