Abstract: The growing interest in Ghana’s gold mining sector due to the recent upsurge in the price of gold has impacted greatly on the economy of the country with regard to its revenue generation capacity. There is therefore the need to develop this sector. Hence, any new method which is relatively low cost and has comparable efficiency compared to prevailing conventional methods in delineating new potential gold fields would be highly recommended. This study therefore aims at using the ground penetrating radar (GPR) a hitherto unknown geophysical method in the mining industry in Ghana, to detect possible zones of gold mineralization in Ghana. The GPR survey was conducted over the Subenso-north gold deposit, a property of Newmont Ghana Gold Limited to delineate geological structures that possibly host gold mineralization.

Abstract: The relevance of corporate governance principles in the management of corporate organisations cannot be underestimated. The increasing influence of principles of corporate governance across the globe has been greatly linked to the recent corporate frauds and scandals. These frauds and scandals largely resulted from the failure of authorities of countries to effectively implement the legal and regulatory frameworks pertaining to corporate governance. Ghana is archetypal in regards to the failure of authorities to enforce the laws and regulations in relation to corporate governance.

Abstract: The high demand for concrete in the construction industry has led to a rapid decrease in natural soil deposit such as river sand and granite. The excessive usage of natural soil deposit has resulted into ecological imbalance and environmental problems. There is need to explore an alternate material that could be used as a replacement for the conventional aggregates. This had directed attention to by-product and wastes such as termite soil. The focus of this research is the development of a function for the optimization of the compressive strength of river sand – termite soil concrete based on simplex design.


Abstract: In this paper, a genetic algorithm (GA) and constriction factor based particle swarm optimization technique are proposed for solving the short term fixed head hydrothermal scheduling problem with transmission line losses. The performance efficiency of the proposed techniques is demonstrated on hydrothermal test system comprising of three thermal units and one hydro power plant. A wide range of thermal and hydraulic constraints such as real power balance constraint, minimum and maximum limits of thermal and hydro units, water availability limit and discharge rate limits are taken into account. The simulation results obtained from the constriction factor based particle swarm optimization technique are compared with the outcomes obtained from the genetic algorithm to reveal the validity and verify the feasibility of the proposed methods.

Abstract: Most mobile communications services such as high multimedia are Asymmetric. There is a great difference in their downlink & uplink requirement both in transmitted amount and transmitted rate.This paper discuss asymmetry between uplink and downlink in view of EM radiation, termed as electro-magnetic Asymmetry.The influence of surrounding environment caused by EM radiation is always a serious problem.Also in view of the fact that the wireless resource is limited and to mainly minimise the asymmetry in TDD and to effectively mitigate cross-slot interference an efficient scheme called Demand based slot allocation (DBSA) with reference to TD-SCDMA is proposed. Finally,the simulation result shows that DBSA strategy markedly minimize the Asymmetry leading to human safety and also improves the system performance leading to higher resource utilization.

Abstract: It was believed in the earlier part of the twentieth century that a person high on rational intelligence (IQ) will succeed in his life. Later, in mid 1990s, a theory was propounded that a person high on emotional intelligence (EQ), IQ being the same, has greater chances of faring well in life, for he is endowed with the capacity to manage his own and others’ emotions better. Towards the end of the century, it was highlighted that spiritual intelligence (SI), also SQ for short, is the ultimate intelligence, necessary for effective functioning of IQ and EQ. SQ allows human beings to be creative, to change the rules and to alter situations, giving us the ability to discriminate. Employing SQ one is enabled to differentiate between ‘right’ and ‘not right’ in the given framework of a society or a situation, listening to inner voice. Our brains are hard-wired for activation and utilization of SI, but most of the people let it remain dormant, missing out a richer quality of being.

Abstract: The effect of electromagnetic radiation on human health is the subject of recent interest and study. ICNIRP (International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection) study has concluded that the exposure levels due to cell phone base stations are generally around one-ten-thousandth of the guideline levels. Moreover, the WHO has classified mobile phone radiation on the IARC (International Agency for Research on Cancer) scale into Group 2B – possibly carcinogenic to humans. That means that there could be some risk. On the other hand, telecom service providers are worried about QoS (quality of service) of mobile services after implementation of stricter norms regarding cell tower radiations.

Abstract: A Sesamoid bones are embedded in tendons, and are essentially hardened calcifications of the tendon itself. The largest sesamoid bone in the human body is the patella, which lies suspended in the kneecap between the quadriceps tendon above and the patellar tendon below. They are found in locations where a tendon passes over a joint, such as the hand, knee, and foot. Functionally, they act to protect the tendon and to increase its mechanical effect, The presence of a bone serves to hold the tendon slightly further away from the centre of the joint this increases its movement, and stops the tendon from flattening into the joint. This differs from menisci, which are made of cartilage and rather act to disperse the weight of the body on joints and reduce friction during movement.

Abstract: Acquiring trustworthy information on crop type and production is very essential for developing countries like India as agriculture is considered as the backbone of its economy. Comprehensive, reliable and timely information on agricultural resources is very much necessary. Though there are numbers of methods for estimation of crop type and production, each method has its own strength and weaknesses. Apart from crop type, associated information is also equally important to understand the reasons behind farmers’ cropping decisions. Though accurate crop data is important for agricultural planning this methodology is may help us in agricultural as well as economic planning. Crop data generated by government agencies used to prepare a catalog of crop information such as Name of crop, area under crop, variety.

Abstract: Optical character recognition strategies are concentrated towards improving recognition efficiencies by adapting post processing techniques. OCR errors of complex scripts are due to improper segmentation as well as inappropriate rendering. Topological features of a script as a global knowledge and geometrical features of isolated patterns as local knowledge are combined together while segmenting the basic unit,syllable. A multilevel segmentation was implemented to adopt the idea of human visual perception capability into the proposed model to use the distinct features exhibited by Devanagari script. The proposed method is based on implementing cognitive approach in segmentation phase by dealing with the syllable as a meaningful unit of information right from segmentation phase itself instead of isolated pattern on document images of Devanagari script.

Abstract: In this world of mobile and cameras, new methods differ from the traditional methods. Traditional methods used contact-based fingerprint matching while the new technique uses contact-less fingerprint matching. Fingerprint matching using sensors uses greyscale images which are very much defining comparative to the images which are taken by cameras and mobiles. And in case of mobile and cameras images can be blurred including noise and distortion. In this paper, we are defining techniques to overcome the issues of blurred images and have to find out better minutiae to match with the database set. To extract the features from blurred images, images which are taken by low cost sensors are filtered and then further processed for minutiae matching.

Abstract: Autonomous communications systems often involve the use of separate solar cells and antennas, which necessitate a compromise in the utilization of the limited surface area available. These separate items may be combined,, provided that the antennas and solar cells are compatible. To show the compatibility of solar cells and antennas, the concept is used to create linearly polarized slot antenna, a circularly polarized shot antenna, a circularly polarized slot antenna and a slot array. The concept offers advantages in terms of surface coverage, volume, weight and electric performance. Slot antennas provide large metallic surfaces (the ground plane) on which solar cells can be directly grown. This yields high area coverage efficiency for the solar cells. In this, it is possible to nearly completely cover the ground plane with exception of a very small area close to the radiating edges of the slot antenna without degradation of the RF performance.

Abstract: Remote Sensing as a direct adjunct to field, recently playing an important role in the study and assess the natural resource in any part of the world. Anthropogenic changes in land use and land cover and land use are often assumed to be identical, they are rather quite different. Land cover may be defined as the biophysical earth surface, while land use is often shaped by human, socio-economic and political influences on the land. Remote Sensing (RS), integrated with Geographic Information System (GIS), provides an effective tool for analysis of land use and land cover changes at a regional level. The geospatial technology of RS and GIS holds the potential for timely and cost – effective assessment of natural resources.

Abstract: Mast cell leukemia is a rare variant of mastocytosis, accounting for less than 1% of all mast cell disease and pose one of the greater challenges in the management of these patients, with a grave prognosis. Diagnosis of this neoplasm rests on the detection of abnormal mast cells in marrow and subsequent spill over to the peripheral blood. We report a case of aleukemic variant of mast cell leukemia in a pediatric patient, presenting with fever and chest pain for 10 days. The peripheral smear showed a picture of pancytopenia with abnormal/ atypical lymphoid cells. Bone marrow aspirate showed dense aggregates of atypical, hypogranular and partially degranulated mast cells expressing toluidine blue and CD117 positivity.

Abstract: In this study samples are collected from several stakeholders involved with the entire privately organized tutoring system as well as the schools. Data have been gathered through interview from teachers, parents and students of various categories. This investigation mainly focused and why the students go for private tuition and how the tutorial classes build up students’ knowledge and skills. The investigation revealed that not only the weaker students go for private tuition in mathematics but the students from all categories. Reasons of going mathematics tutorial classes ranged from getting pass marks to being forced by parents or pushed by class mates. However, common practice for most of the individual tutors is to complete the syllabus. Students expressed boldly that they could learn problem solving more easily in tutorial classes than in school.

Abstract: Three-dimensional finite element (FE) model for armchair and zigzag type single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) is proposed. The model development is based on the assumption that carbon nanotubes, when subjected to loading, behave like space-frame structures. The bonds between carbon atoms are considered as connecting load-carrying members, while the carbon atoms as joints of the members. To create the FE models, nodes are placed at the locations of carbon atoms and the bonds between them are modeled using three-dimensional shell element. The elastic moduli of shell element is determined by using a linkage between molecular and continuum mechanics. The investigation includes armchair and zigzag SWCNTs.

Abstract: A Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) is designed to store very large data sets reliably and to stream those data sets at high bandwidth to user applications. Metadata management is critical to distributed file system. In HDFS architecture, a single master server manages all metadata, while a number of data servers store file data. This architecture cannot meet the exponentially increased storage demand in cloud computing, as the single master server may become a performance bottleneck. Comparative study of a metadata management scheme is done. There is three of techniques sub-tree partitioning, hashing and consistent hashing of metadata management scheme. Out of these three schemes consistent hashing is the best techniques which employs multiple NameNodes, and divides the metadata into buckets which can be dynamically migrated among NameNodes according to system workloads. To maintain reliability, metadata is replicated in different NameNodes with log replication technology, and Paxos algorithm is adopted to keep replication consistency.

Abstract: This paper deals with the pollution originating from one of the by product of the coal called ash in Indian thermal power stations. Ash is obtained by the combustion of coal. This ash is again divided into two types based on its characteristics namely- fly ash, bottom ash. Mainly this ash can be used but not 100%. So rest of the ash which is not used is mixed with water. This mixture is called as slurry which is pumped to the ash pond. Some pollution is created during this process and after. Pollution caused by this assessed by taking samples. samples consists of the ash taken as soon as combustion takes place, other set of samples from ash pond. Samples extracted with Deionized water, a solution of potassium chloride and a solution of hydrochloric acid, the differences were compared in order to predict potential pollution.

Abstract: The response of Baban Tsauni (Nigeria) lead-gold ore to gravity separation methods was investigated in this research work. Value addition to run-off mines is always necessary in order to reduce downstream metal extraction costs. Gravity separation methods (the focus of this work) are the cheapest beneficiation methods. This study applied three gravity separation methods: jigging, multi-gravity and shaking table and measured the grades/ recoveries of the valuable minerals. Beneficiation of this ore by jigging method yielded the highest lead recovery of 86.9% at a grade of 56% for a geometric mean particle size of 421.31microns. Shaking table separation produced high grades but very low recoveries while the multi-gravity method gave the best combination of grade and recovery. Beneficiation by jigging method gave good lead recovery (above 75%) when particle size was bellow 1000μm but above 250μm while in multi-gravity separation particle size was bellow 500μm but above 125μm.

Abstract: Today students have been raised in a world of instant access to knowledge and information, a word of automation, remote controls, and simulation capabilities to stimulate the mind. Although schools are embedded in this technological culture, the education system is largely unchanged. In other words, students are far more technologically savvy than the institutions that support them. Unless educational institutions catch up, students are likely to feel rigid, uninteresting, and possibly alienated.

Abstract: The genotoxic potential of blitox (fungicide) was investigated by using chromosome aberration in Allium cepa root tip cells. Allium cepa roots were treated with 2g/lt., 3g/lt. and 4g/lt. concentrations of blitox and distilled water as control at 4 hours, 8 hours and 12 hours duration. The results indicated that blitox significantly increased the genetical abnormalities at all concentrations and treatment periods when compared with their controls and this increase was dose-dependent for the 4, 8 and 12 hours treatments. On the other hand, blitox significantly decreased the mitotic index (MI) in all treatments when compared with their controls. This study indicates that blitox decreased the mitotic index and produced clastogenic and aneugenic types of abnormalities in Allium cepa root tip cells.

Abstract: It is a well-known fact about the degree of difficulty associated during the landing phase of an Aircraft. An efficient and a reliable auto-landing controller are therefore specially needed for auto landing purpose. A good number of parameters have to be controlled during the landing phase like the approach velocity, Heading, Heading offset, vertical velocity, flare, altitude, alignment of the aircraft etc., which makes the application of conventional controllers expensive for the purpose. This is precisely where fuzzy logic can be used. Using fuzzy sets and fuzzy set operation, it is possible to design a fuzzy reasoning system, which can act as a controller. Potentially, applications of such knowledge-based approach to controller design can result in efficiency, time and cost savings. The aircraft used in this project is a Personnel launching system (PLS) model given in the Aerosim adds in Matlab.

Abstract: Recently, a number of wireless communication technologies are migrating toward heterogeneous overlay networks. The integration of Mobile WiMAX and WLAN seems to be a promising approach due to their homogeneous nature and complementary characteristics. In this paper, we investigate several important issues for the interworking of Mobile WiMAX and WLAN networks. We address a tightly coupled interworking architecture. Further, a seamless and proactive vertical handoff scheme is designed based on the architecture with aims to provide always the best quality of service (QoS) for users. Both the performance of applications and network conditions are considered in the handoff process. Moreover, we derive evaluation algorithms to estimate the conditions of both WiMAX and WLAN networks in terms of available bandwidth and packet delay.

Abstract: The big question is does Earth losing or gaining mass. This paper deals with the review of the research that Earth mass is decreasing due to the various reasons they are Hydrogen escape, Helium escape and loss due to nuclear radiation from Earth core. Mass loss due to space exploration missions cannot be neglected. Similar to the pollution, pollution happen in many ways due to natural and human activities but pollution due to human activities is found to be more hazardous likely the earth loses mass due to natural phenomenon but loss due to human activity may be hazardous in future. This paper gives the analysis of the space missions which lead to loss in Earth mass due to space missions. Earth lost its mass of about 3473 tons in the infant space age of 53 years; it is found that Earth loses its mass with the rate of 65.185 tons per year.

Abstract: Dental features have been widely used for forensic identification purposes in cases of mass disasters like, fires, floods, plane crashes etc. when other methods of identification (fingerprints, physical etc.) are not available. However with the increase in the number of cases to be investigated a move towards computer aided system is required. This paper presents a computerized approach for processing and matching of dental radiographic images, with the goal of human identification. Given a dental record, usually as a postmortem (PM) radiograph, we need to search the database of ante mortem (AM) radiographs to determine the identity of the person associated with the PM image by extracting some features namely average pixel intensity, length to width ratio and root center angle to retrieve a closest match.

Abstract: In distributed systems one process or a node is required in such a way that it can act as leader node or a coordinator. Election algorithms are meant for electing process or node that acts as leader node also called as coordinator from among currently alive processes such that at any instance of time there will be single coordinator for all the processes in the system. So, election algorithms are momentous in any distributed system. Bully algorithm is one of the standard approaches for electing the coordinator in distributed systems. In this paper, we have presented a bully algorithm that minimizes the number of messages while electing the new coordinator and when a process recovers from a crashed state in distributed systems and thus reduces the network traffic caused.

Abstract: The use of digital photography has increased over the past few years, a trend which opens the door for new and creative ways to forge images. Now a day several software are available that are used to manipulate image so that the image is look like as original. Images are used as authenticated proof for any crime and if these image does not remain genuine than it will create a problem. Detecting these types of forgeries has become serious problem at present. To determine whether a digital image is original or doctored is a big challenge. To find the marks of tampering in a digital image is a challenging task. A copy-move image forgery is done either for hiding some image entity, or adding more minutiae resulting in forgery. In both the case, image reliability is lost. Although this technology brings many advantages but it can be used as a confusing tool for hiding facts and evidences. In this paper we detect region duplication forgery by applying Discrete Cosine Transform. We divide the image into overlapping blocks and then search for the duplicated blocks in the image.

Abstract: Wireless sensor network is a collection of sensor, which senses the data and perform the action, according to data. Where as wireless sensor and actor networks (WSANs) contain a group of sensors and actors connected via wireless medium. The sensor node senses the data and then transfers it to the actor. The actor performs the action according to the data. Sensor nodes in wireless sensor and actor network, have some hardware and software restrictions. Due to which, fault may occur in sensor as well as in network. However, some research emphasises on the link fault without considering the fault in sensing the data. Because of this, the node may sense incorrect data and perform the incorrect action. To solve this issue, Five Number Summary method for fault tolerance (FNSMFT) may be used.

Abstract: Sublethal concentrations of copper (CuSO4.5H2O) administered to freshwater fish, Puntius sophore for a period of 30 days brought about significant haematological alterations. RBC/TEC count, Haemoglobin, Haematocrit and MCHC content progressively decreased while WBC/TLC count, MCV and MCH increased. LC50 of CuSO4 for P.sophore was estimated as 1.6 mg/l. Alterations in haematological parameters were dose and duration dependent. The highest concentration of copper (0-8 mg/l) proved lethal and resulted in mass mortality of the fish on 15th day of the experiment.

Abstract: Large cardamom (Amomum subulatum Roxb.) belongs to family Zingibereaceae and order Scitaminae is the most suitable cash crop for the hilly terrain of the state of Sikkim. Likewise a large section of farmers in North Sikkim and most parts of Sikkim are engaged in large cardamom cultivation. For years cardamom has been the single most crucial cash crop to these stakeholders. However recent times have shown a steep decline in the land holdings, as well as productivity under large cardamom. Although not evident apparently, it has drastically affected the livelihood of a large section of the rural population.

Abstract: In recent years online gaming where multiple players from different location participate through internet in same session. Multicasting is very suitable in such environment. Multicasting is a key concept for modern communication. A message is sent from a source host to a group of destination hosts. Communication link is used as a path to receivers. Multicasting uses several multicast routing protocols for forwarding messages from source host to destination hosts. In recent years packet radio has gained much popularity for host to host communication. Power constraints and scarce bandwidth are the major challenges for routing protocols. We performed the comparative study and analysis of the Reactive and Proactive routing strategies for wired ad hoc networks. In this paper we are showing the comparison between the Core Based Tree and Centralized routing strategies.

Abstract: Certificate revocation is an important security component in mobile ad hoc networks. Owing to their wireless and dynamic nature, MANETs are vulnerable to security attacks from malicious nodes. Certificate revocation mechanisms play an important role in securing a network. When the certificate of a malicious node is revoked, it is denied from all activities and isolated from the network. The main challenge for certificate revocation is to revoke the certificates of malicious nodes promptly and accurately. In this paper, proposed scheme is based upon a clustering-based certificate revocation scheme, which outperforms other techniques in terms of being able to quickly revoke attackers certificates and recover falsely accused certificates.

Abstract: This paper is a collation and compilation of the research papers pertaining to the heavy metal contents in irrigation water used for agricultural purpose. The uptake of heavy metal by plants through contaminated soil gets accumulated and is a potential threat to animal and human health. The heavy metals in water bodies damage the aquatic organisms and fishes. Excess use of fertilizers and pesticides in agricultural activities to enhance productivity due to rapid population increase and development of technology threaten the groundwater and surface water on a large scale. This shows there is an obvious risk for human in the future. The pesticides used in crop cultivation should be free from heavy metals. Hence this study concentrates on effects of heavy metals present in irrigation water.

Abstract: In a typical video application, such as video-on-demand, videos are continuously streamed from a video server to a set of receivers. The constant-quality video encoding technique and variable bit rate (VBR) encoding techniques used. Variable bit rate (VBR) video transmission leads to the burstiness of video traffic, hence high fluctuation in bandwidth requirement. Traffic smoothing algorithms are very efficient in reducing burstiness of the VBR video stream by transmitting data in a series of fixed rates. In this paper, we examine traffic smoothing algorithms and their performance analysis, using a MPEG encoded video and simulation results showed that our approach has small bandwidth requirement, high bandwidth utilization and low computation cost.

Abstract: An underground storage environment for yam tubers was designed and constructed at the college of Engineering, university of Agriculture, Makurdi. The structure which was tested between November 2011 and January 2012, consisted of walls made of burnt bricks, erected from the ground soil level of the underground pit. Thatch and bamboo sticks were used for roofing. Yams were stored in the underground pit structure and also in an open shed for comparison. Test results showed that temperature and humidity in the underground structure ranged from 28.77 oC to 32.70 oC and 70 % to 88 % respectively for 56 days, while that of the open shed fluctuated between 32.90 oC to 36.40 oC and 50 % to 78 % within the same period. The ambient temperature at the location of the storage structure was between 36.40 oC to 40 oC. The reduced temperature achieved in the underground pit together with the average relative humidity, made it possible to store yam tubers for 56 days. In the shed environment however, yams could stay for 35 days.

Abstract: Health hazards caused by heavy metals have become a great concern to the population. Excessive industrial effluents, pesticide application and biomedical activities load a large amount of metals and metalloids to the environment. Cadmium is one of these, with high rate of bioaccumulation and extreme toxicity at low concentration. Cadmium is exposed to air and water through a number of industrial sources including mining, pesticides, alloys, electroplating, food and cigarette-smoking etc. WHO permitted limit for cadmium in drinking water is 0.005 mg/L whereas in Indian standard it is 0.01 mg/L. In India there are some places where groundwater cadmium concentration is far beyond this limit. Pali, in Rajasthan is a place where this concentration is reported to be 0.224 mg/L. Present study has been designed with the aim of social welfare as well as an eco-healthy approach to find out impact of orally administered cadmium on the hepatic enzymatic system in model organism albino rat and its amelioration by Mentha piperata. Acute and sub-acute cadmium administration induces a significant hyponatremia, hypochloremia and hyperkalemia in albino rat, which were brought to normalcy after pretreatment with Mentha piperata, containing terpenoids as an antioxidant after acute and sub acute treatment. Experimental results therefore reveal protective effect of pretreatment with Mentha piperata under stress of cadmium in albino rat.

Abstract: Cloud computing reduces costs associated with computing with increase of flexibility and scalability for computer processes because of this cloud computing is counted as one of today most exciting technologies. As we know that Turbo-c, Microsoft visual studio, Java is software package available in the windows operating system. But one important thing which we should note is there is operating system restriction with these software packages. We cant use some application in Linux operating system. Also another thing is we cant use this software over internet. So there are some OS restrictions and Hardware restrictions with existing system. The solution to this problem is to develop a soft-ware application which should avoid the OS restrictions and Hardware restrictions. It should be usable over the internet. Cloud benefits such as load balancing, better level of the security will help to increase the performance of this application. We are developing a technique thro-ugh cloud computing in which user will handle systems from far distances with the help of centralized server and can access applications as well insert them from client machines, and can store data on data storage area on proxy server.

Abstract: Minerals composition (Ca, Na, Pb and Sn) of Sudanese white soft cheese purchased from White Nile state had been investigate, the cheese samples were packed in to 5 different packaging techniques, metal tin (lined with polyethylene bags and non-lined), plastic container (lined with polyethylene and non-lined) and petroleum gallon as a control. The Calcium and Sodium content decreased significantly (P ≤ 0.05) throughout the storage period from 9.5 and 11.13 ppm at the beginning of the storage period to 7.0 and 2.47 ppm at the end of the storage (180 days) respectively, where there were no significant differences between samples kept in lined and non-lined metal tin packages. The significantly higher level of Lead (0.05 ppm) was observed in samples stored in metal gallons sealed by soldering at 60 days storage whereas the significantly (P ≤ 0.05), lowest value 0.026 ppm of Pb content was observed in samples stored in plastic container at 120 days storage. The Tin content in all samples was under the detected level.


Abstract: Electrocardiogram (ECG) data compression algorithm is needed to reduce the amount of data to be transmitted, stored and analyzed, without losing the clinical information content. This work investigates a set of ECG data compression schemes to compare their performances in compressing ECG signals. These schemes are based on transform methods such as discrete cosine transform (DCT), fast fourier transform (FFT), discrete sine transform (DST), and their improvements. An improvement of a discrete cosine transform (DCT)-based method for electrocardiogram (ECG) compression is also presented as DCT-II. A comparative study of performance of different transforms is made in terms of Compression Ratio (CR) and Percent root mean square difference (PRD).The appropriate use of a block based DCT associated to a uniform scalar dead zone quantiser and arithmetic coding show very good results, confirming that the proposed strategy exhibits competitive performances compared with the most popular compressors used for ECG compression. Each specific transform is applied to a pre-selected data segment from the CSE database, France and then compression is performed.

Abstract: The determination of optimal cutting parameters have significant importance for economic machining in minimizing of particular operating mistakes like tool fraction, wear , and chatter. The evolutionary algorithm GA is used to improve many solutions of optimization complex problems in many applications. This paper reviewed the ideal selection of cutting parameters in turning operation using GA and its variants. This study deals with GA algorithm in different machining aspects in turning operation like surface roughness, production rate , tool life, production cost, machining time and cutting temperature. The survey showed that there are many papers in the field of turning parameters optimization using GA, but there is a lack in studies in the field of cutting temperature optimization in turning operation which is very important problem in machining operation. In addition, there are rare papers that studied dry turning operations.

Abstract: This paper concerns about Question Answering system in which a statistical language modeling approach is used. The main objective is to build a simple system for question answering without the need for highly tuned linguistic modules which need more human work and is very difficult to find any bugs if any. A mathematical model for answer retrieval and answer extraction is derived, which does not use any linguistic information or annotated data. It makes use of word tokens and web data. We take a statistical, noisy-channel approach and treat QA as a whole as a classification problem. We present a fully data-driven mathematical model for estimating the probability of a candidate answer given a question. In doing so we largely remove the need for ad-hoc weights and parameters that were a feature of many TREC systems.

Abstract: The increasing transparency and accountability of all organisations , including public service and government, together with the modern complexity, penetration and importance of ITC (information and communications technology), for even very small organisations nowadays, has tended to heighten demand for process improvement everywhere. This means that Business Process Modelling is arguably more widely relevant than say Time and Motion Study or Total Quality Management (to name two earlier efficiency methodologies) were in times gone by. Put simply Business Process modelling aims to improve business performance by optimising the efficiency of connecting activities in the provision of a product or service. Business Process Modelling techniques are concerned with mapping and workflow to enable understanding, analysis and positive change. Diagrams - essentially flow diagrams - are a central feature of the methodology.
