Abstract: The purification process is very important stage in sugar industries. The juice extracted from cane sugar is normally treated by addition of milk of lime and heating. This treatment helps settling of the coagulate, fulgent, salt, gums, and fiber impurities. This impurity affects to quality of juice and there chemical properties. After purification process the clear juice concentrated in evaporators then to the crystallizers to produce sugar crystals. Then sugar crystals were separated from molasses and to color improvement unit. .In this study the samples of lime juice were taken and heated to different temperature (75, 80, 85, 90, 95, 100) oC were analyzed and determined the chemical properties which affected to quality of sugar production like: pH, polarization sugar , reducing sugar, color, phosphate contains, turbidity and purity. Then the sedimentation rat at this different temperature by measuring the volumes of settling material and the clear juice were calculated.

Abstract: In this paper, the length of an edge sequence is said to be the number of edges contained in the edge sequence. The length of a fuzzy chain is the number of edges that makes up the fuzzy chain. The distance between vertex i and vertex j is sij, which is defined as the length of the smallest fuzzy chain between vi and vj. The concept of radius and diameter are associated with connected fuzzy graph. The radius of a fuzzy graph is defined as the set of maximum values selected from each row of the distance matrix is in a sense a measure of the closeness of a fuzzy graph. The diameter of a graph is the greatest distance that can be found in the fuzzy graph. To determine the diameter, select the maximum value from each row in the distance matrix. The largest of these numbers is the diameter.

Abstract: The study specifically aims to review cause and consequences of rural- urban migration in Ethiopia. Environmental degradation, lower agricultural productivity, inadequate social services, demographic pressure, land shortages in rural areas were identified as the major push factors of migration. Although “push” factors predominate, there are some significant “pull” factors that attract rural people to urban areas such as education, health services, security, better job, advancement opportunities and other urban amenities. Depending on reviewed document, the most significant consequences of migration in the urban areas are overcrowding and congestion, strain on urban social services rising food costs, worsening air and water quality and increasing violence, prostitution and diseases are important.

Abstract: This experiment was carried out to determine the tolerance level of winter buds according to positions in Karaerik cv. grape cultivar grown in Erzincan province during the winter colds that occurred in 2013/14 and 2014/15 years. For this purpose, frost tolerance levels of the first 4 buds of one-year old shoot and their damaged varability rates by exposure to low winter temperatures have been detected with binocular microscope and lipid peroxidation (MDA) analysis. The winter buds at the 2nd and 3rd shoot were found to be most sensitive to low temperatures with average damage rates of 26.5% and 33.5%, respectively during the years of the research. Additionally, the winter buds at the 1st and 4th nodes according to positions were found to be the most tolerant buds with average damage rates of 18.5% and 19.5%, respectively. On the other hand, the winter buds found on the 2nd and 3rd nodes according to positions were found to be the most sensitive buds with average MDA content of 3.72 and 3.74 nmol/ml respectively. For all that the winter buds in the 1st and 4th nodes according to positions were identified as the least injured buds with average MDA content of 2.92 and 3.12 nmol/ml respectively. Therefore, in pruning this is recommended to reduce yield losses by making it from node position 4th after the severe winter cold. In this way, with standardization of pruning levels for Karaerik grape cultivar can be improved yield and quality.

Abstract: The similarity measurement of mapping between ontologies has been evaluated through prior terms like instance, properties and association. Concept similarity measurement (CSM) technique is most applicable for mapping among ontologies which calculates similarity matching of data given by user (i.e. data mention in search query, mostly various keywords are typed). The basic purpose of this research is to suggest a SM technique which uses similar super concepts for mapping and increase the matching similarity with some additional datasets. We have analyzed the various limitations in previous techniques and have effort to modify the limitations of these techniques in our proposed architecture. The paper presents a layered approach for similarity matching using super concepts and measures the synonym of concepts by using domain vocabulary. It also uses the (ESR) explicit semantic relation to measure the responsibility of concepts which create conflict in mapping process. A sample case study has employed to test the SM technique of proposed architecture .Two matrices for evaluation which is efficiency and definitiveness parameters has used to improve performance of mapping by adding concept explicit semantic relation. The proposed architecture provides the enhancement of mapping results by classify super concepts which are based on the semantic responsibility of concepts. This improvement plays a vital role in the domain of ontologies for mapping, alignment and merging and will also give a clear, obvious outcome of search.

Abstract: Biosecurity is the practice designed to prevent the spread of diseases onto farm, with in farm and out from the farm. It has three major components, isolation, traffic control and sanitation. Good biosecurity should be practiced at all the time and it is the cheapest and the most effective means of disease control. Therefore, objectives of this study were to evaluate and grade the commercial broiler farms according to the present biosecurity status and to correlate the performances with biosecurity status of those farms. A questionnaire covering all basic conceptual, structural and operational aspects of biosecurity was used to collect data from 80 commercial broiler farms in Central Province of Sri Lanka. Minitab software was used to analyze the data. There is a significant negative correlation (p<0.05) between average catching age with overall biosecurity status. The average body weight has shown positive correlation while average mortality% and FCR having negative correlation though not statistically significant (p< 0.05). The biosecurity status of most farms falls to category of “Average” representing about 56%, while “Good” and “Poor” had about 15% and 27% of farms, respectively. There were very few broiler farms found in categories of “Excellent” and “Very poor” in terms of overall biosecurity status.

Abstract: Although teaching is most preferable area for women to be empowered, but women are grossly under-represented in higher education till yet. Women are not able to give over their time equally as men for improving their skill and knowledge according to latest development in higher education due to dual responsibilities. Through a study it is proved that participation of female teachers is lesser (39%) than male teachers (61%). This study highlights those factors that make the women immobilize to complete their education of higher level and making the advancement in career. By using primary and secondary data by the researcher, the range of factors is divided into three categories as barriers: Social, Psychological and Institutional which mould the behavior of women and which make irrelevant workplace values So, further, it has been tried to examine how women can be empowered in higher education? What are the special initiatives that should be taken by the organization and the government? Govt. policies and plans of different authorities & commission regarding higher education can be implemented in such a way that women can contribute their immense participation in the development of Indian economy.

Abstract: India has a road network of over 5,472,144 kilo-metres (3,400,233 mi) as on 31 March 2015, the second largest road network in the world. The plastic wastes can be used in road construction and the field tests withstood the stress and proved that plastic wastes used after proper processing as an additive would enhance the life of the roads and also solve environmental problems. Plastic use in road construction is not new. It is already in use as PVC or HDPE pipe mat crossings built by cabling together PVC (polyvinyl chloride) or HDPE (high-density poly-ethylene) pipes to form plastic mats. Waste plastic is ground and made into powder; 3 to 4 % plastic is mixed with the bitumen. The durability of the roads laid out with shredded plastic waste is much more compared with roads with asphalt with the ordinary mix. The use of the innovative technology not only strengthened the road construction but also increased the road life as well as will help to improve the environment and also creating a source of income.

Abstract: Due to the progress in digital imaging technology, image retrieval (IR) has become a very active research area in computer science. Although many researches are increased in Sketch Based Image Retrieval (SBIR) field, it is still difficult to bridge the gap between image and sketch matching problem. Therefore, this paper presents a scalable SBIR system and contributes to get more efficient retrieval result. The features of both the query sketch and database images are extracted by Scale Invariant Feature Transform (SIFT) algorithm. Then the cropped keypoint images are processed by Canny edge detection. After blocking the edge image, the matched feature values are get by pixel count ratio. The retrieved images similar with query sketch are displayed by rank. Mean Average Precision (MAP) and Recall rates is measured as evaluation criteria. To evaluate the performance of this system, the benchmark sketch dataset of Eitz et al. is used.

Abstract: Competition of brokerageindustry in Indonesia is getting harderwith advancesin information technology, such as online trading. It is goodfor investors because the stock transactions can be done anywhere and anytime with a low cost. On the other hand, securities company (broker) requires a large capital to provide an online trading systemand offer a competitivetransaction fee. This study estimates the amount of working capital that must be met by a broker in Indonesia in order to compete with the other. The result is the low working capital led to low competitiveness. Broker with a large-scale company has a higher competitiveness compared to a small one. Therefore, the minimum requirements Net Adjusted Working Capital (NAWC) should be increased from Rp 25 billion to Rp 100 billion. Increasing in working capital is expected to encourage brokers more competitive and able to outperform the regional capital market players.

Abstract: This work presents the quantitative advantage of using a plane mirror as reflector for photovoltaic application. Shade, intermittent nature of solar radiation and dust reduce the total amount of the incident radiation on PV panel and thus reduce its efficiency. Plane mirror is used to increase the incident radiation and thus minimized the effect of the above problems. Experimental measurements are conducted on the performance of a 15 W silicon polycrystalline PV module with mirror reflector and compared with its performance without the mirror. The results obtained show that the plane mirror increased the output power of the PV panel to 20.4W.Thus the use of plane mirror as reflector is recommended to overcome the problem of poor performance due to these problems.

Abstract: Universities especially in Africa are today faced with the challenge of producing competent and highly skilled manpower necessary to serve the needs of humanity in the 21st century. The quality of assessment in these institutions could play a major role in the realization of this role. The United Kingdom is home to not only the oldest but also the best universities in the world. The East African Community on the other hand being a region in Africa may not be famed for this characteristic. In fact, studies have shown that a number of universities in the region ─ Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Burundi, Rwanda and South Sudan are faced with a number of challenges related to the quality of education that takes place in these institutions.

Abstract: Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) consist of multiple nodes, usually tens to thousands, that are deployed to gather useful information from the environment/field. These nodes share information and carry out cooperative processing by communicating through wireless channels. These Wireless Sensor Nodes are generally grouped in clusters to increase the efficiency of the network and enhance the scalability of the network system. However, since the nodes have limited power capabilities, limited computation power and finite battery life, it becomes critical to conserve the limited resources in order to increase the up-time of the network.

Abstract: Minimum entropy probability distribution is necessary for complete information of probability distribution. But it has not been calculated so much whenever Maximum entropy probability distribution has been obtained by using different measures. Due to concave nature of entropy, minimization is complicated than maximization. In the present paper, We use Unorthodox measure of entropy to obtain minimum entropy for given Arithmetic mean and Second order moment.

Abstract: Researchers have argued that if programmes are appropriately designed, microfinance could make an important contribution to women’s empowerment. Empowerment is about changing power relations to favour those who previously had limited power over their own lives. Participation of women in microfinance programmes provides them with resources that enhance their individual ability to make choices and consequently gain control over their own lives. An example of programmes providing microfinance services targeting women clients is the Women Enterprise Fund (WEF), an initiative of the government of Kenya. This paper employs a descriptive approach to examine effect of duration of participation in the WEF micro finance programme on women empowerment in Nairobi County. The paper is based on the findings of a wider study on the impact of WEF Microfinance intervention programme on women empowerment, carried out between October 2015 and January 2016 in Nairobi County. A sample of 385 women was drawn randomly from 167 active self help groups that were beneficiaries of microcredit and other financial services from WEF. Data was collected using a structured questionnaire, as well as through focus group discussions. According to the findings, participating in the WEF programme had a positive influence on various dimensions of empowerment, but the duration of women’s participation (the number of years women had received credit in form of loans, and other services from WEF) had very limited impact on empowerment outcomes.

Abstract: The aim of this study was to determine the factors that influence the profitability in one of commercial bank in Indonesia, both internal and external. Assessment of the financial performance of banks is important for stakeholders and may also increase of the level of customers’ trust. Profitability of banks can be seen from the Return on Asset (ROA), Return on Equity (ROE) and Return On Investment (ROI) ratio. This research used secondary data taken from the banks’ annual reports and website of Bank Indonesia. The method used in this study was the Vector Error Correction Model. The results showed that nearly all of the company’s internal variables such as LDR, ROA, NIM and CAR had significant effect in the short term, while all external variables did not have significant effect towards profitability in both the short and long term. Impulse Response Function (IRF) analysis results indicate that the shock of one standard deviation on all internal variables except NPL gives corresponding response while external variables fluctuated in coherence with ROA, ROE and ROI. Forecast Error Variance Decomposition (FEVD) analysis results, as well as BI and ROA were dominantlyinfluencing the value of ROA, NIM and GDP were dominantlyinfluencing the value of ROE, meanwhile the CAR and inflation rate were dominant in influencing the value of ROI.

Abstract: The concept of this paper studies with the customers arriving in bulk or group, in a single server queueing system, in Poisson distribution which provides three types of general services in bulk of fixed size M (≥1) in first come first served basis. After first two stage service, the server must provide the third stage service. After the completion of third stage service, the server takes compulsory vacation under exponential distribution. If the required bulk of customers are not available on the return of the server, the server again goes for vacation or remains in the system till bulk is reached. The arriving batch balks during the period when the server is busy or when the server is on vacation or other constraints. This may result in the impatient behavior of the customers. From the above concept, we compute the time dependent probability generating functions and from it the corresponding steady state results are obtained. The average queue size and the system size are derived.

Abstract: Urban pattern describes the "pattern" and representing the spatial characteristic of the urban area. Whereas efficiency energy was one of the hottest topics related to spatial pattern. This paper presents a study about the correlation between urban pattern and distribution of electrical energy. The aim of this research is to find out the patterns of urban space that can provide efficiency in electrical energy distribution. The research method used quantitative positivist approach, while the data collection used Geographic Information System (GIS). As object of study is commercial area around Semarang city square. There are four steps analysis i.e. electric transient and analysis program to calculate losses value, nearest neighbor analysis to determine the spatial patterns, ordinary least square to determine the relationship among variables and hot spot analysis to determine the optimum distance of spatial pattern. Based on the analysis, the most suitable spatial pattern to create the most efficient in electrical distribution in commercial area was cluster. The maximum distance for each activity was 146 m for shopping complex, 165 m for trade and service area and 358 m for hotel and supermarket. In addition, to create efficiency in electrical distribution in commercial area, the proportion of business area must be higher than other areas. Then followed by shopping complex and for the last was hotel and supermarket.

Abstract: Software effort estimation is the methodology predicting the amount of effort required to develop or maintain the particular software. The Software effort estimation is task which is done in the requirement engineering phase where a requirement is taken and the effort needed for that particular requirement is found. The accuracy value of the effort must be very high because it may lead to the financial loss or the loss of reputation of the company. K-Means clustering algorithm is one of the machine learning oriented techniques. The clustering of the dataset is done using the K-Means clustering algorithm to estimate the effort accurately and efficiently. After clustering, the analogy based estimation technique is used. The non-algorithmic model like the analogy based effort estimation performs better than the algorithmic model like COCOMO. The effort estimated using the analogy based effort estimation coincides mostly with the actual effort obtained from the software effort estimation dataset. The results of the effort estimation were analyzed using the Magnitude of Relative Error (MRE) and Mean Magnitude Relative Error (MMRE) to prove its accuracy.

Abstract: A high quality service is a must for any educational institutions. The reason is simply because by providing a high quality service, the educational institutions will not merely have economic benefits, but more importantly it could make the institutions becoming as the second home of the students and other stakeholders of the schools. However, studies examining the quality of the service management and the human resources of educational institution in Indonesia have been limited. For this reason, this study using secondary data, observations and experiences aims at examining these issues. The study found that the educational institutions in Jakarta still needed many improvements not only in terms of the service management, but also in terms of human resource management.

Abstract: Bill Gates-- the founder of Microsoft, the world’s largest Software Company and the wealthiest man on the planet, strongly feels that “ I’m a great believer that any tool that enhances communication has profound effects in terms of how people can learn from each other, and how they can achieve the kind of freedoms that they’re interested in.” Billionaire Warren Buffet highly places the value of Communication Skills by saying that “If you can’t communicate, it’s like winking at a girl in the dark. One can improve one’s value 50 percent if one has better Communication Skills.” Cline (2005) conducted a survey while he was undertaking his research in a Corporate sector. He based it on 330 employers. The result wasn’t astonishing as 96 % of the executives considered Communication Skills to be the most important feature of an employee trait. It can be said that “Poor communication can negatively affect employee recruitment and retention (CCH, 2000), as well as the “bottom line” (Washatka, 2004).

Abstract: Due to various natural and anthropogenic activities, quality of water was deteriorated in most towns of the country. These changes make the community to depend on unsafe and poor water consumption. Under the present investigation some physicochemical parameters of water from Mettu town for drinking purpose was characterized. The analyzed laboratory result of some heavy/trace metals from the town were Zn (from source point, tap and distribution was 0.06429 ± 0.00242, 0.00759 ± 0.00235 and 0.03594 ± 0.00238 respectively), Pb (from source point, tap and distribution was respectively 0.04348 ± 0.04376, 0.11141 ± 0.04450 and 0.07744 ± 0.04413). Among the three heavy metals the concentration of Lead (Pb) recorded was above the maximum permissible limit of lead in drinking water (0.01 mg/L) according to WHO standard. Some selected laboratory result of physicochemical parameters was pH [Ms (6.44), Mt (6.61) & Md (6.32)]. Electrical Conductivity (µS/cm-1) [Ms (274), Mt (259) & Md (267). Turbidity (NTU) [Ms (8.21), Mt (5.63) & Md (5.87). Comparatively the maximum value for almost all physicochemical parameters were recorded at Mettu town which indicates further treatment process needs for this town.

Abstract: A field trial was conducted at Agronomic Research Area, University of Agriculture Faisalabad during August 2015, to evaluate the effect of priming and foliar applications of different growth promoting substances on sorghum. The experiment was laid out in randomized complete block design (RCBD) with three replications. Net plot size was 3 m × 1.8 m. The research trial was comprised of eight treatments i.e. control (no seed treatment), hydropriming, priming with CaCl2, hardening with CaCl2, priming with moringa leaves extract, priming + foliar application of CaCl2, priming + foliar application of moringa leaves extract and hardening+ foliar application of CaCl2. All the priming treatments significantly affected E50, MET, plant height, stem diameter, fresh weight of plant, dry weight of plant, number of leaves, leaf area, fresh weight of leaves, protein contents, fiber contents, total ash percentage fresh forage yield and dry matter yield of the sorghum crop. It may be concluded that seed priming along with foliar applications of growth promoting substances may serve as an appropriate treatment for accelerating the emergence as well as final yield of the crop and priming, along with foliar applications of MLE is the best choice in this regard.

Abstract: Wheat is the major staple food crop worldwide and frequently cultivated on saline soil. Salinity is the serious factor hampering wheat productivity with adverse effect on germination, growth and final economic yield. This study was carried out to evaluate six F2 segregating populations at PindiBhattiyan, Pakistan under normal and saline conditions during 2013-14. Individual plants of each population were selected and evaluated on the basis of plant height, number of tillers, spike length, spikelets per spike, grain per spike, grains weight per spike, 100 grain weight and average grain yield per plant under saline and normal environments using biplot analysis. Biplot analysis appeared valuable screening tool to identify the slat tolerant wheat genotypes due to its graphical nature. Based on biplot plants of each F2 population are classified into four groups. First group A contained the F2plant with high saline tolerance suitable for saline environment. Second group B having the F2 plant with good performance under normal condition. 3rd group C and 4th group D having the poor performing F2 plant in both normal and saline environmental condition.

Abstract: Kenya is a developing country still at the stage of providing infrastructures in health, education, agriculture and administrative as well as living facilities for its rapidly growing population. Towards this end there are a good number of construction projects at different stages of implementation in Trans-Nzoia County. There are however conflicting views on the schedule performance of most of the projects with some stakeholders especially the intended users arguing that they are delayed while the implementers believe that they are on course. Although schedule delays are common features in all construction projects the identification of the main causes of schedule delays and the implementation of actions that prevent these delays are fundamental steps for resolving delay related issues. There is therefore a need to identify the causes of project delay and propose effective methods to improve time performance and avoid or minimize losses.
