Abstract: Improvement in Peak Expiratory Flow Rate (PEFR) in 35 Patients with acute severe broncospasm was studied to evaluate the rate of recovery from the episodic attack. Two groups of COPD were identified. One group with quick and complete recovery from the episodic attack of broncospasm who were described as “Accelerated Responders” and in the other group the recovery was slow and incomplete and were referred to as “slow Responders”. The way how PEFR values establish a pattern in obstructive disease help us not only to identify the patients into groups but also to discriminate them for diagnosis & treatment of chronic obstruction for patients who are particularly at risk are discussed over here.

Abstract: It appears that the study of insurgency and peacekeeping intervention in Africa suffers from general disregard for an examination of some covert intended outcomes by the intervening organisations– the gap which this study attempts to fill with special focus on the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, NATO. Yet, it is observable that due to huge resource gaps, African Union peacekeepers depend upon external assistance, most notably from states within the EU and NATO in form of classroom education, field training exercises, the provision of equipment, and support to deploy African peacekeepers and equipment into the theater of operations. How has this form of assistance transformed from humanitarian intervention to interference? Using Libya as a case study, this paper sets to discuss this subtle metamorphosis particularly within the context of the US-led NATO operations on the Continent.

Abstract: TUM has undergone three distinct phases from a tertiary Technical, Industrial, Vocational Entrepreneurship and Training (TIVET) Institute to constituent college (i.e. Mombasa Polytechnic University College) and finally as a Technical University of Mombasa (TUM) aligned to the fulfillment of social pillar of Vision 2030. Specifically, TUM has been earmarked as Vision 2030 center of specialization in Tourism, Hospitality, and Marine based sciences and Technology. We examine the synchronization of TUM's current Strategic Plan2014 - 2018 and Kenya Vision2030 social pillar. We then look at implementation practices and barriers that can make TUM not realize its vision; and finally, we come-up with viable recommendations that will make TUM realize its vision as "a university of global excellence in advancing Knowledge, Science and Technology".

Abstract: The consequences of malnutrition due to micronutrient deficiency on the health of humans, particularly iron deficiency, vitamin A and iodine, are multiple, particularly mortgaging the socio-economic development of developing countries (DCs). Food diversification, public health actions, food fortification and supplementation are the four (04) main strategies against malnutrition and this can improve the quality of life of a community or a country. The present study aimed to develop Chad infant flours fortified in vitamin A and zinc, iron and vitamin C taken from local products such as powder of dried Moringa oleifera leaves and pulps of Parkia biglobosa to improve the balance of these micronutrients in flours. The nutritional value of these flours was assessed according to standard analytical methods. The results revealed that, for 100 g of flour, our experimental flour showed 2 times more iron, vitamin C, magnesium, potassium and zinc, 4 times more vitamin A and calcium. The study found a slight increase in protein, total sugars and phosphorus.

Abstract: Lower Urinary tract symptom (LUTS) is a common presentation among elderly patients particularly in men in urology clinical practice. Evaluation and treatment of LUTS is a major consideration and IPSS score and ultrasound KUBP are routine investigations for assessment of such patients. There is a controversy on relationship between IPSS score and the prostate volume in the literature. The objective is to evaluate the relationship between IPSS and prostate volume in patients with LUTS. There is a significant relationship between IPSS and prostate volume measured through abdominal ultrasound. The Total IPSS increases with the prostate volume (r=0.223, p<0.003). But there was no statistically significant difference between mild, moderate and severe IPSS in relation to prostate volume.

Abstract: Degradation of land mainly through jhumming cultivation or slash and burning agriculture is the main concern in the mountainous tracts of North-Eastern India. Removal of vegetation especially tree species leads to major changes in an ecosystem. Soil respiration is one such important aspect of soil. It indicates the activities of soil organisms and supplying of nutrients to the growing vegetation. The present study shows that removal of common tree species in three types of slope in a five year old jhum fallow leads to a decrease in soil respiration. It was found out by comparing with plots treated with leaf litter and untreated plots. In the present location the increase in soil respiration due to treatment of leaf litter on steeper slopes was more than the gentler slopes. The reason being gentler slopes are in the upper tracts where human disturbances are more.

Abstract: As the place that stores the brain in an organization, a Data Center centralizes the operations of the company, its equipment and stores, maintains, propagate the data that runs through the company. Data Centers may have a physical or virtual infrastructure and data which are stored in them provides the base for the successiveness of an organization since they are much valuable when making decisions in the business processes. In simple terms, the past, present and the future of an organization relies on the outcome of the analyzed data. Due to these reasons, it is one of the top priorities of a company to ensure the security and reliability of data centers and their information. With the advancement of the technology, securing the data centers to its best level has become a complicated task, due to the various possible attacks. Making an attack on a data center becomes easier when there are loopholes in the security mechanisms that are used in data centers. In this paper the authors describe about the existing security mechanisms which are specific to the physical data centers. Furthermore, this paper has discussed the possible solutions that can be used to ensure the security of data centers as a perspective to the current Information Technology (IT) industry.

Abstract: A simple, rapid and sensitive spectrophotometric method has been developed for the determination of Co (II) by using N - (o - hydroxy benzylidene) pyridine - 2 - amine (NOHBPA) as an analytical reagent. NOHBPA has been synthesized and characterized by elemental and spectral analysis. NOHBPA extracts Co (II) quantitatively (99.78%) into ethylacetate an aqueous solution of pH range 8.5 – 9.5. The ethylacetate extract shows an intense peak at 520 nm (λ max). Beer’s law is obeyed over the Co (II) concentration range of 0.1 - 10 µg/ml. The sandell’s sensitivity and molar absorptivity for Co - NOHBPA system is 0.007142 μgcm-2 and 8250.82 L mole-1cm-1 respectively. The composition of extracted species is found to be 1:2 (Co: NOHBPA) by Job’s Continuous Variation and Mole Ratio Method. Interference by various ions has been studied. The proposed method has been successfully applied for determination of Co (II) in Pharmaceutical samples.

Abstract: The control of traffic at highway intersections is of fundamental importance to traffic engineers engaged in finding ways to achieve efficient operation of only highway system. When traffic conditions warrant it, signalization may be considered an effective means of control at intersections since the number of conflict points at intersections could be significantly reduced with signalization. However, that an attempt to significantly reduce the number of conflict points will increase the number of phase required, which may result in increase delay. For signalized isolated intersections proper signal phasing and cycle time is very important to reduce the accidents, to allow safe crossing of traffic as well as pedestrian flow and reduce the overall delay. In the present work an attempt has been made to synchronize signal from Rasoma to High court via Patnipura in Indore district.

Abstract: Despite the advances in vaccine development, vaccine preventable diseases still add to the burden of childhood morbidity and mortality across the globe, particularly in developing countries. One of the major barriers preventing the access to sophisticated vaccines is the high vaccine price, the same factor that is preventing their implementation in developing countries with limited resources and funds. So, it is imperative that financial breaches and funding resources for the future are stringently appraised to strengthen immunization programs and expedite financial sustainability. Health Technology Assessment (HTA) presents an inventive and efficient approach by facilitating decision makers with a valid tool to improvise the allocation of limited resources in immunization programs. Hence, in this article we have attempted to address and suggest measures that can be implemented on a collaborative basis to mitigate the financial challenges faced in immunization programs in developing nations. The article also explores the potential and advantages of HTA as a tool for introducing new vaccines as part of immunization programs in developing countries.

Abstract: Dengue fever is making headlines all over the world. It is a mosquito-borne disease. The huge leap in dengue cases is causing many scientist and medical experts to worry. There is no cure for dengue fever. In fact, one of the biggest challenges the medical community faces is how to control dengue and how to stop the disease from spreading. Right now, one of the most effective way is the vector control. The current study is the laboratory and field evaluation of Bacillus thuringiensis var israelensis Vectobac® WDG (Water dispersible granules) 3000 ITU / mg was carried out against Aedes albopictus (early 4th instar) larvae from Lahore Pakistan. The primary objective was to control Aedes mosquitoes (Mainly vector of Dengue fever) by determing the minimum effective dosage of Bti WDG for larval mortality and pupae reduction of Aedes albopictus in laboratory as well as in the field assay.

Abstract: In Arabidopsis (Flowering Plant) shoot apical meristem (SAM) is converted into inflorescence meristem. Study has been revealed that there are various genes which control this transition. Two types of inflorescence are found in flowering plants: Determinate and indeterminate. Terminal Flower 1 (TFL1) gene is one of those genes which play key role for the maintenance of inflorescence meristem. Tfl1 gene regulates flowering time and maintains the fate of inflorescence meristem. Arabidopsis genome contains six TFL1 like genes. TFL1 belongs to a small gene family. In this study a comparison between TFL1 wild type and TFl1 mutant is conducted according to which TFL1 is able to convert the indeterminate inflorescence to determinate. TFL1 is believed to be a controller or more specifically a regulator of inflorescence architecture and flowering time. TFL1 is believed to be a negative regulator of flowering time so if mutations are introduces in it the flowering time will be accelerated.

Abstract: The study investigated three public higher education institutions’ academic staffing practices in which guidelines (institutional /national level) these institutions have, the criteria they use, the organ responsible and the challenges the institutions face in the process were dimensions of the study. To this end, embedded multiple case studies design was used and data were collected through semi-structured interview conducted to department heads. Besides, two national documents by the Ministry of Education and four universities in unison endorsed by the ministry respectively assessed and analyzed as supplement. Finally, thematic analysis was made. The findings implications show that while there are national documents meant for guiding the process of staffing by all institutions, they are not self-sufficient to show the procedures and the criteria used to recruit the right candidates except former national document indicates the responsible organ that doesn’t seem to have been recognized and functioning by the institutions. As the result, the institutions do recruit using arbitrary procedures and criteria of their own that interest those involve in the process. Therefore, the situation calls for having proper binding guidelines, at national level, that clearly guide the process in such a way that procedures, job descriptions, criteria and tools of evaluation are clearly included in.

Abstract: The current Internet usage, which was designed over 40 years ago, is facing unprecedented challenges in many aspects in the future. Our future Internet, though there will be more than 600 million users, the world is about 10% of the way there, and there is a lot of growth to come. As a result global internet traffic and mobile traffic will rise steadily and explosively over the next five years. These issues are usually referred to as ‘green networking’. Despite some proposals for energy-efficient topologies most of the studies are focused on warning the world about this problem. Mainly as the unnecessary energy consumption is being reduced day by day, the proposed paper provides strategies to save network for future covering through many components such as; wireless networks, wired networks, hybrid networks and the current chemical evolution happening in the world. Furthermore, the proposed project hopes to identify a few strategies that are the key enablers of energy-efficient networking research. Since the proposed project mainly highlights greening the networks, when these strategies come to play approximately 30-35% of energy will be saved through networking for future usage.

Abstract: As this is the 21st century, the term “globalization” has become popular. Simply put, globalization is the process of international integration. Under this, as nations, people have lots of factors that must be definitely considered. Among those important areas, information technology (IT) is something that is being evolved day by day. As a negative aspect of IT, with the help of technological advancements, criminals are using cyberspace to commit numerous cyber-crimes. Since people are connected to the cyber space with their own devices, they are all vulnerable to intrusions and other various kinds of threats. Basic protection methods, such as internet security suits, are not just enough to protect the data and devices. Introducing effective and highly advanced cyber defense systems has become essential. As of today, with the technology, the globe is moving towards the artificial intelligence (AI). AI plays a major role in technology and has been involved with many technological aspects as well. Creating cyber defense systems, using intelligent agents has become a trend by today. Basically, an intelligent agent is a software component which can be emerged in an environment, take decisions, and has the ability of noticing and representing.

Abstract: In this paper, MX/G/1 queue with disasters and working breakdowns services is analyzed. The system consists of a main server and a substitute server. It is assumed that disasters occur only when, the main server is in operation. The occurrence of disasters forces all customers to leave the system and causes the main server to fail. At a failure instant, the main server is sent to the repair facility and the repair period begins immediately. During the repair period, the system is equipped with the substitute server which provides the working breakdown services to arriving customers. The concept of working breakdown services is included and the steady state system size distribution is derived. Various performance measures are derived and the effects of system parameters on queue length are studied.

Abstract: If countries want to develop and boost their tourism industry, it should be paid attention to comparative price competition especially among rival destinations. Because there is a broad consensus that touristic demand is responsive to prices. In this regard, this study aims to analyze by comparing the price competition of 10 countries where we can consider as rival destinations in the international tourism market to Turkey. Data on goods and service price of countries where World Bank had prepared within the scope of International Comparison Program (ICP) programme (2011) were used in price analysis. Based on these data, total weighted costs of goods and services in the tourism product basket were calculated for 10 different destinations. In the study, purchasing power parity and exchange rates were determined based upon Turkey. Results of analysis suggest that Jordan and Tunisia among 10 destinations have the strongest price competitiveness, however indicating that France and Italy have the weakest price competitiveness.

Abstract: The number of tertiary level educational institutions in Ghana has significantly increased from three government-owned universities in 1992 with the establishment of both public and private institutions that have additionally gained tertiary status. The proliferation of private universities has become a matter of public concern because some do not have full-time professionally trained staff for both academic and administrative engagements, and good infrastructure and facilities for provision of conducive environments that would enhance teaching, learning, and research. This study sought to examine the impacts of giving professional training to managers of polytechnics in particular, and tertiary level educational institutions in general. Qualitative research paradigm was used and purposive and stratified sampling methods were employed for data collection. The output of the research indicates that managers of tertiary level educational institutions need to be equipped with professional administrative skills to enhance training of high calibre graduates for both research and the job market. The National Council on Tertiary Education could establish an institute and design training modules for the award of professional certificates in Tertiary Level Educational Management to newly recruited administrators and academic heads of tertiary educational institutions.

Abstract: Cloud computing has become an emerging technology infrastructure in the IT industry. Reasons for the sudden boom of this model were the advantages it offers to the users. Cloud computing is a service over a network connection which shares enormous amount of resources rather than having to build the infrastructure in house. Other than sharing resources cloud computing offers flexibility, reduced capital costs, achieving economies of scale, globalize workforce etc. Cloud computing technology has some serious drawbacks which now has overrun the benefits it offers. The security of the user data is crucial when adopting a cloud computing model. Several methods have been implemented in securing user data such introducing encryption algorithms. Service traffic hijacking creates a major concern on using cloud computing for this allows the hacker to access the credentials of the genuine user hence he or she can eavesdrop on the user’s activities and transactions, manipulate user data, return false information and redirect your client to illegitimate sites. In this paper we propose remediation to prevent intruders of accessing unauthorized data and using and encryption algorithm efficiently to neutralize the security threats.

Abstract: Students of Saint John’s Secondary School, Sekondi-Ghana were made to acquire scientific skills in physics during the practical sessions. The treatment was investigated using a randomized pretest –protest experimental design. The performance of thirty (30) students who constituted the experimental group was compared with other thirty (30) students who constituted the control group. Both groups offered Biology with Physics and Chemistry as their electives. The homogeneity in the entry behaviors of the two groups was determined using the two-tailed F-test analysis of variance at 5 % level of significance. Similarly, the t-test analysis of means was invoked for the post-test. The two-tailed t-test performance for 58 degrees of freedom gave a critical value of 2.00 at the 2.5 % probability level. This value was then compared with calculated t-value of 3.17 and it was found that the treatment was effective. The research therefore recommended the approach for the use by teachers to help students to acquire some scientific skills in physics and science in general.

Abstract: This is a time where usage of technology keeps growing. Along with a growth of using technology, so as it needs to increase the using hardware and server. It consumes more energy than past. As a solution virtual environment can be used to ease the usage and less hardware, server and energy consume. More than one Virtual Machine (VM) in a host can be run at once but virtual traffic between two VMs will never go out of the host. Therefore, this network traffic will never meet a physical firewall and also when data comes from outer networks must be filtered before they enter the related VMs. In case of that a Virtual Firewall (VF) must be deployed. When a network traffic generated it causes VF to slow it’s mechanism down as well as the hypervisor’s performance. To solve it, quantum mechanism approach will be used and will be given a solution to improve the VF performance as well as hypervisor performance.

Abstract: Internet protocol version 6, the new version of the Internet Protocol has been developed to provide new services and to provide flexibility to the Internet's growth. An overview of the key security issues outlines the challenges in deploying and transitioning to IPv6. Protecting against threats, viruses, hackers can be regarded as the most difficult problems on the Internet today. One solution for these attacks is to trace the source of the attacks. However, it is not easy to trace since the attackers generally use the spoofed IP source addresses to hide own network location. The current Internet architecture does not provide any means to find the real sources of IP packets. Numerous trace back mechanisms have been proposed to this prevention method to overcome this issue. Most of such works have been focused on addressing the trace back issues based on the Internet protocol version 4 based network. In this paper, the research group analyze IPv6 hacking techniques and propose a combined solution from the existing solutions.

Abstract: Network anomaly detection is a important and dynamic research area. Signal processing techniques have been applied recently for analyzing and detect network anomalies due to their potential to find novel or unknown intrusions. Flooding is a kind of attack, in which the attacker sends several floods of packets to the victim or associated service in an effort to bring down the system. There are unlike types of flooding attacks like ping flood, Syn floods, UDP (User Datagram Protocols) floods etc. The project simulates a ping flood scenario, by using the ping command on the OS(Operating System) and same time wireshark is installing the system on the victim, which would be used to analyses the number of ping packets acknowledged during a specified period with orientation to a threshold, based on which a flooding attack is detected. In wireshark one port received all ping request. Therefore is not accurate to handle the all request. In this paper briefly disused how is wireshark tool working, wireshark tool disadvantages use traceback mechanism and improved the wireshark tool.

Abstract: As such the health care systems in India is very complex and having various verticals. With the emergence of corporatization of hospital the measurement of efficiency has become the initial step in the process of individual performance audit of patient care centers. The term efficiency is largely used in the field of economics and it refers to the best utilization of resources. A very common example of operational efficiency is technical efficiency which means the effective use of resources (input) in producing outputs. In the Farrell framework, a hospital is judged to be technically efficient if it is operating on the best practices of the production frontier. Mainly there are two methods which are used in measuring operational efficiency. The first is Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) which is a linear programming method enabling the measurement of efficiency consistent with the theoretically based concept. The role of DEA is to examine the relationship between inputs to a process and the outputs of that process. The second technique for assessing efficiency that is employed is Stochastic Frontier Analysis (SFA). However the DEA is used most commonly.

Abstract: The phenomenon of turning conventional banks to Islamic banking has been accompanied by the phenomenon of the spread of Islamic banks in the second half of 20th century. Studies in this area are infrequent in Libya because of the absence of Islamic banks. Some conventional banks in Libya have recently started to transform into Islamic. From here the view of the researcher doing the study to help these banks to identify the measures are necessary to turn to Islamic banks and thus enter the Islamic banks to the Libyan arena to contribute to raising the level of dealing with banks, many of the Libyans do not prefer to deal with conventional banks, considering that Libyan society is an Islamic society. Islamic banking services include whether conventional banks close branches for Islamic finance and conventional banks to become Islamic. Libya is trying to impose a particular authorization for Sharia based banks.

Abstract: The biosorption of Cd (II) ions from the aqueous solutions by A. nidulans strain isolated from contaminated soil was studied in batch system. The effect of pH (3, 4, 5 and 6), temperature (25, 30, 35, 40 and 45ºC) initial concentration (100 – 500 mg/ L) of Cd (II) ions on biosorption were investigated. The maximum biosorption capacity of A. nidulans was 258 mg/L at 350 mg/L of Cd (II) ions. The experimental results suggest that the second – order equation is the most appropriate equation to predict the biosorption capacity by A. nidulans. Biosorption equilibrium data was best described by Langmuir isotherm model followed by Freundlich model. The free energy change (∆G°) obtained for the biosorption of Cd (II) ions at the temperature of 298, 303, 308, 313 and 318 K was – 633, - 644, - 655, - 665 and – 676 by the fungal biomass at pH – 3. The high negative value of change in Gibbs free energy indicates the spontaneity and feasibility of the biosorption of Cd (II) by kJ/mol by A. nidulans.

Abstract: Increased gasoline consumption in automotive engines have triggered the emissions of greenhouse gases (GHG) especially carbon dioxide (CO2) from automotive exhausts. These exhaust emissions depend on factors like the engine combustion design and operating conditions, fuel grade and lubricant, the state of maintenance and local road conditions and continue to affect the concentration of pollutants emitted by automotives like CO2 and unburnt hydrocarbons which are very toxic to humans, leading to environmental pollution. In pursuant of improved efficient engine and less toxic emissions, the use of gasoline blends and biofuels are not the panacea since the exhaust-gas concentration and its constituent are not indicative of the contribution of the constituent to the overall emission due to variations in exhaust-gas flow rate with different engine types and automotive sources. Moreover real-time monitoring, turbo-charging technologies, fuel injection strategies and catalytic exhaust aftertreatment may reduce emissions if compared to base engines but significant risk of CO2 induced climate change continue to persist, while CO2 capture technologies such as adsorption and absorption are limited in contrast to new developments in engine and exhaust technologies that are cheaper and locally sourced and could become the next trajectory.

Abstract: This paper presents a detailed study of firewall technologies which are commonly used for network security. A firewall cannot handle all the destructive threats which are coming from unauthorized networks. Therefore, to develop a secured network different types of firewall technologies are used. Lot of researches have been done considering technologies of firewalls. The main purpose of this paper is to apply firewall capacity along with other firewall technologies such as packet filtering, network address translation, virtual private network and proxy services in order to prevent unauthorized accesses. Due to lack of many researches, related to firewall capacity and firewall technologies together. The research group focuses to build a more protected network by combining both firewall capacity and firewall technologies. The experiment results show the proposed idea good enough to build a secured network.

Abstract: Nalanda Lake is (Long. 80º 37’ 1.93” and Lat. 7º 40’ 30.6”) one of the ancient Lake in the Sri Lanka. It’s fed by the Basin of Mahaweli River. This lake water is use for drinking, agriculture and human activities. Generally, in this lake observing the high amount of algae due to high nutrient content. Equally lake water had a less amount of Dissolved Oxygen (DO). The DO concentration is characterize of a lake healthiness. And also, the DO concentration responds to the Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD) load. Main Objective of this research was determined the DO concentration in selected Non-point source and developed the DO consumption model by using Mathematical Equation. Five different sample location points were selected. DO and BOD variation was studied during four weeks. Totally 20 samples were analyzed. DO was measured by DO meter (HACH Sension6), BOD was measured by the Winkler method. DO consumption was measured using Streeter-Phelps equation. According to investigated data DO vary (8.31±0.76 – 10.02±0.46 mg/l). Minimum DO value (7.62 mg/l) obtained point-3. BOD varied from 5.13±1.08 to 5.92±0.53.

Abstract: The present study was designed to assess the constraints affecting market performance of selected vegetables: namely potato, egg plant, pointed gourd, okra, aroid and red amaranth. Total 100 respondents were randomly selected from two upazilas- Bogra sadar and shibgonj of Bogra district. Both tabular and quantitative analyses were conducted to achieve the objectives of the study. Spread values of vegetables grower to consumer were almost doubled. The average spread value change of vegetable at town market was 19.67 % higher than village market. The major findings of the study revealed that production of all the selected vegetables were profitable but respondents faced constraints due to improper marketing systems. Growers, wholesalers, retailers and consumers of vegetable put first priority accordingly on low market price, irregular supply by growers, high wholesale market price and high retail market price. All the respondents were put emphasis on to stretch out constraints early and proper steps should ensure by government to minimize all the risk.

Abstract: Unplanned readmission of hospital discharge patients is driving up healthcare costs, and the statistics are staggering. In 2010, U.S. hospital discharges numbered over 35 million and nearly 20 percent of Medicare patients were readmitted back into the hospital within the first month. The Affordable Care Act’s Hospital Readmissions Reduction Program (HRRP) Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) began a penalty on hospitals having high readmission rates. As a result, hospitals are financially motivated to reduce hospital discharge patient readmissions. At-home patients with undetected deteriorating physical conditions can result in adverse secondary conditions (i.e., developing infections) that send them back into the Emergency Room. The most common post-discharge complications are: (i) an adverse drug event (ADE), (ii) infections acquired in the hospital, (iii) secondary acquired complications, as well as, (iv) pneumonia, and (v) depression and loneliness. Reducing adverse events post-discharge is essential for the U.S. health care system. Health Relationship Management Services (HRMS), a new healthcare paradigm, monitors the patient’s health from home after discharge to help minimize hospital readmissions. At the same time, it alleviates loneliness and isolation by providing a connection to a caring health community, empowering patients to control health outcomes in collaboration with their care providers and care experts.

Abstract: Present day skateboards and bikes are truly engineering marvels; nevertheless they have already been so refined that they are quite simplistic by today’s high technology standards. Rapidly advancing technologies in many sectors including potential E-bikes are classed according to the power that their electric motor can deliver and the control system, i.e, when and how the power from the motor is applied. As such, the classification of these e-bikes varies greatly across countries. The classification of e-bikes is mainly decided by whether the e-bike’s motor assists the rider using a pedal –assist system or by a power-on-demand one.

Abstract: Many companies are using computer networks in modern days because to make easy their works. Not like earlier, it is actually easy to work with computer networks. People use different topologies to communicate with networks. There are different kind of topologies in the world. For an examples Ring, bus, Mess, Star, etc. Not only that wireless technology has vastly developed within 5 years. Although there are some difficulties when communicating in networks. It is hard to categorize different access levels in network. Many companies are using networks to communicate. Many of them used different topologies to communicate. Therefore those researches face so many difficulties while communication. For an example in ring topology if one cable broken down there is no way to fulfill the communication. Modern days lot of companies do not involve with Network topologies because it is not efficient. Consider both topologies and wireless together, these fields are different fields in network. Although combination of both together it can made efficient network topology with wireless technology. From this concept it helps to made proper network topology. This conceptual schema helps to do communication most secure and efficiently.

Abstract: In order to investigate the effect of linearized process on the adsorption equilibrium isotherms of methylene blue from solutions onto rice husk, the experimental data were fitted to the Langmuir isotherm equations by using five different types of linear expression. The adsorption equilibrium constant related to the affinity of the binding sites and energy of adsorption (KL ) and maximum adsorption capacity (qmax) for each linear expression had been calculated. Also, values of the the amount of MB adsorbed on adsorbent at equilibrium time using the constants calculated from these five linear types of Langmuir isotherm equations were compared with the experimental data. The results indicated that the type 1 linear expressions were able to calculate the adsorption equilibrium constant and qe for the studied system (methylene blue/rice husk) well. The results also showed that it was inappropriate to use the other four proposed alternate linear expressions (type 2 to type 5) to calculate the adsorption equilibrium constant and qe for the studied system.

Abstract: Tanneries generate wastewater in the range of 30 to 35L kg-1 skin/hide processed with high salinity, high oxygen demand, high organic loading and a high salt content one of which is chromium which spoils the agricultural land and pollute the ground water. In the present investigation, the bacterial strains were isolated from the contaminated soil which was collected from in and around the tannery waste contaminated site. Previously grown indigenous bacterial culture was transferred into 100 ml nutrient broth containing different concentrations of hexavalent chromium (100ppm, 200ppm, 300ppm, 400ppm, 500ppm, 600ppm and 700ppm). These were incubated for 72 hours in facultative conditions. The blanks were also maintained in same conditions without bacterial inoculation. Samples were collected from this experiment to evaluate hexavalent chromium at different time intervals (0hr, 12hrs, 24hrs, 36hrs, 48hrs, 60hrs and 72hrs). From the results it was inferred that the higher bacterial growth was observed at 48 hrs and the maximum chromium reduction was observed upto 500ppm, it was reduced at percentage of 90.40. The isolated microorganisms were identified as Pseudomonas fluorescens and Bacillus subtilis.

Abstract: The study was conducted to evaluate the growth performance of Stevia as influenced by clonal propagation methods and growing media at the Nursery House of the City Agriculture Office, Casisang, Malaybalay City, Bukidnon, Philippines from September 2015 to November 2015. The study was carried-out in a 3 x 5 factorial arrangement in Completely Randomized Design (CRD) with three replicates and twenty plants per replication with cutting methods (A1 – shoot tip cuttings, A2 – nodal cuttings and A3 – wedge stem cuttings) as Factor A and growing media (B1 – pure garden soil, B2 – ½ garden soil + ½ vermicast, B3 – pure vermicast, B4 – ½ garden soil + ½ sand, and B5 – 1/3 garden soil + 1/3 sand + 1/3 vermicast) as Factor B. Results revealed that shoot tip cuttings in combination with 1/3 garden soil + 1/3 sand + 1/3 vermicast in plastic cups two months after planting significantly produced the tallest plants (13.72 cm), highest survival rates (96% for Factor A and 97.33% for Factor B), least incidence of leaf curling and leaf dark spot (both 1.22 ratings for Factor B), and most number of leaves (26.67) and branches (3.25). However, the combinations of nodal cuttings and pure garden soil showed very poor growth performance with the shortest height, least survival rate, highest incidence of leaf curling and leaf dark spot, and least number of leaves and branches. Thus, propagating Stevias using shoot tip cuttings with 1/3 garden soil + 1/3 sand + 1/3 vermicast media mixture using plastic cups for two months showed the best growth performance. Hence, recommended for mass propagation and herbage production.
