Abstract: Training and Development is a continuous process for improving the caliber and competence of the employees to meet the current and future performances. Training in addition to imparting requisite skills to all levels of employees, executives and managers also aims at changing the behavioral patterns of the employees in a direction which is congenial to achieve the organizational effectiveness, sustainability and growth. In this era of fast changing economic scenario and throat- cutting competitions, it is not enough for any organization just to have solid financial foundations, state of the art technology, automated systems, since the cutting edge of competitive survival is now the quality of the human resources which decides that which organization would ultimately survive in the long run.


Abstract: Before two years ago our Sri Lankan peoples main topic was war heroes but today no one talking about them much more. That was the main reason to discuss about this forgotten war heroes. There are so many war heroes protection organizations in Sri Lanka. The sample compromised with the disabled war heroes who have not disable early that is the problem identified in the sample. Therefore research problem is, (1) Do war heroes suffered with mental problems under three situations as, before join the army, after join the army & after disabled.

Abstract: Since 1993, the vertical directional solidification (VDS) technique has been shown experimental evidences for the total detached growth for InSb/GaSb ingots grown- without seed, without wall contact, without coating and without external pressure. Detached growth and apparition of spontaneous gap performs a trick to the entire ingot by the self-detached growth and self-pressure difference. Among the ingots grown by VDS technique, 80% ingots slide out easily, 15% ingots were entrapped in the conical region of the ampoule, and 5% ingots were attached to the ampoule wall. Three types of detached growths have been investigated. Concepts of meniscus conversion from concave to convex and concave crystal-melt interface shape have been predicted from the strong evidence of experimental analysis. Experimental statistics for the detached growth and its mystery of the four decades is unfolded. The qualitative physical model has been proposed on the basis of experimental statistics as A new crystal growth process.

Abstract: In most of the emerging networks the main problem is based on broadcasting a data to a remote cooperative group in efficient and secure manner. To overcome the limited communication from the group to the sender, the unavailability of fully trusted key generation center and the dynamics of the sender we proposing a hybrid of traditional broadcast encryption and group key agreement. In this system, each member maintains a single public/secret key pair. When seeing the public keys of the members, a remote sender can securely broadcast to any subgroup. Following this model, we introduce a scheme that is proven secure in the standard model. In this, even if non-intended members collude, they cannot extract any useful information from the transmitted messages. After the public group encryption key is extracted, both the computation overhead and the communication cost are independent of the group size. It is very strong security against collusion, constant overhead, and also our protocol is a solution to many applications.

Abstract: Digital surface Models (DSMs) contain information about topographic surfaces and also about other objects higher than the surrounding topographic surface such as buildings, trees etc. therefore, they are ideal for analyzing urban landscape. In this research DSMs of Bhopal city are made from Cartosat 1 stereo data. Three DSMs are made using three different techniques such as adaptive ATE, traditional ATE available through Leica Photogrammetric Suite (LPS) and automated terrain extraction available through Orthoengine. The paper compares the steps of DSM extraction and concluded that process of DSM generation comprised of image orientation and image matching. The output DSMs are compared in context of identifying urban features. It was found that DSM generated through traditional ATE and Orthoengine are more reliable compared to DSM generated through adaptive ATE. This is because; object filter within adaptive ATE modifies the elevation value resulting error in object heights.

Abstract: The quantitative analysis of phenolic compounds and of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) amounts in the latent buds of the vine (Vitis vinifiera. L) showed seasonal variations. These compounds change also as function of the vine development cycle. The total amounts of phenolic compounds are strongly accumulated in the buds in beginning of dormancy phase in mid-August. Nevertheless, the ending of dormancy phase in mid-November in the buds is associated with increasing of the hydrogen peroxide yield and a considerable drop in the content of the total amount of phenolic compounds. These variations appear to be strictly related to the climatic conditions. This is particularly visible in ending of dormancy phase. This is coinciding with the cold period where the temperature is below 10 ° C for at least 7 consecutive days.

Abstract: Duplicate bug report describes problems for which there is already a report in a bug repository. For many open source projects, the number of duplicate reports represents a significant percentage of the repository, so automatic identification of duplicate reports are very important and need let’s avoid wasting time a triager spends in searching for duplicate bug reports of any incoming report. In this paper we want to present a novel approach which it can help better of duplicate bug report identification. The proposed approach has two novel features: firstly, use n-gram features for the task of duplicate bug report detection. Secondly, apply cluster shrinkage technique to improve the detection performance. We tested our approach on three popular open source projects: Apache, Argo UML, and SVN. We have also conducted empirical studies. The experimental results show that the proposed scheme can effectively improve the detection performance compared with previous methods.

Abstract: From the viewpoint of Anekanta the permanent is real, but so is the impermanent or the changeable. Being can be explained in terms of the permanent for it is unchangeable. One of the intrinsic parts of the unchangeable is change, for change and changelessness are not two different things. Both co-exist. Anekanta has two basic viewpoints: absolute and non-absolute or relative. For determining the substance one should use the absolute viewpoint; for determining the relations one should use the non-absolute viewpoint.

Abstract: Optimization of DNA isolation protocol for genetic characterization of any medicinal plant is the necessary and primary step. Plant leaves of medicinal plants are rich in secondary metabolites, polysaccharides and polyphenols that are problematic during isolation of genomic DNA. Besides, succulent plants freezed under liquid nitrogen turn to stonelike tissues that are difficult to grind. Flowers were not considered as a source of genomic DNA as the case of young leaves, this might be due to the seasonal nature and short half-life feature. Several protocols described for plant DNA isolation from Aloe barbadensis Miller using leaf, found difficult and tedious. This plant contains exceptionally high amount of secondary metabolites that interfere with DNA isolation.

Abstract: At the time of power swing the measured impedance lies inside the relay operating region. There is undesired tripping of Distance relay during power swing without having any fault. So relay must be blocked & must trip after a fault occur during power swing. This paper presents new technique to detect fault during power swing. In the proposed technique process starts by simulating the double transmission line with one line series compensated. When we connect a fixed capacitor in one transmission line, fault detection become more difficult. The detection of symmetrical fault during swing is more difficult. So the proposed technique can easily detect any fault during swing with series compensated line. Sampled data of current and voltage passes through wavelet transform. It decomposes it into different levels. Then we calculate total energy of some selective levels of current and voltage. A double circuit line model is simulated in EMTDC/PSCAD.

Abstract: Image scaling is the process of resizing a digital image, wherein an image is converted from one resolution/dimension to another resolution/dimension without losing the visual content. It has many terminologies in literature such as Image Interpolation, image re-sampling, digital zooming, image magnification or enhancement, etc [1] [2]. Image interpolation algorithms can be grouped in two categories, non-adaptive and adaptive [3] [4]. Interpolating from lower to higher resolution it is termed as up-scaling / up-sampling and from higher to lower resolution it is termed as down-scaling / down-sampling. In this article we propose a non-adaptive image interpolation algorithm to scale images for any given scaling ratio with an enhancement scheme to ensure a better image quality metric (PSNR in dB) of the scaled image.

Abstract: Tetryonics is a new geometric theory of mass-ENERGY-Matter and the forces of motion, stemming from a geometric re-interpretation of what squared numbers are in physics and its application to quantized angular momentum (QAM). It can now be shown through geometry that the QAM of Planck’s constant is in fact the result of its quantized equilateral ‘triangular’ geometry (and not a vector rotation about a point as has been historically assumed to date).

Abstract: Adverse Drug Reaction (ADR) is one of the most important issues in the assessment of drug safety. In fact, many adverse drug reactions are not discovered during limited pre-marketing clinical trials; instead, they are only observed after long term post-marketing surveillance of drug usage. In light of this, the detection of adverse drug reactions, as early as possible, is an important topic of research for the pharmaceutical industry. Recently, large numbers of adverse events and the development of data mining technology have motivated the development of statistical and data mining methods for the detection of ADRs.

Abstract: Intrinsic motivation is an energizing of behavior that comes from within an individual, out of will and interest for the activity at hand. No external rewards are required to incite the intrinsically motivated person into action. The reward is the behavior itself. Logically, this seems like an ideal, for people to act as “origins” of their behavior rather than “pawns” (deCharms, 1968). However, it is certainly not the case that every real world behavior stems from an intrinsic energy.

Abstract: Recent developments in technology have made possible the widespread deployment of small, low power and dense wireless networks, known as wireless sensor networks which collect and disseminate environmental data. In such networks communications can be easily monitored and hence data transmission and reception between the nodes must be encrypted using a secret key. Furthermore, the distribution of secret key used in encryption of data in a very large network is a cause for the reduced efficiency of the network. The scheme of using quantum teleportation as a mechanism to distribute quantum data over a sensor network offers huge advantage over traditional methods. In this paper an EPR-Pair scheme is implemented in terms of quantum gates to achieve higher degree of immunity from eavesdropping of malicious nodes.

Abstract: The results on the biochemical constituents of rose inflorescence revealed that the levels of lipid, carbohydrate, nitrogen and protein were significantly lower (P<0.05) in infested parts when aphid population were maximum as compared to uninfested ones in most of the cases.The rose plants were mainly infested with two aphid species viz., Macrosiphumrosae (Linnaeus) and Macrosiphumrosaeiformis (Das). The infestation of insect pests caused considerable damage to the individualparts (leaf, stem and inflorescence) of the rose plants and significantly reduced the nutritional constituents at different growth stages. Macrosiphumrosae was found to be the most active pest of rose. These aphids have appeared in the fields especially with the onset of flowering. The loss in biochemical nutritives of plant foliage due to aphid infestation would degrade the quality of the products mainly made from the inflorescence of rose plants. This study reports results obtained from different localities, which may have almost similar ecological and environmental conditions.

Abstract: This paper examines the impact of television viewing in shaping adolescents sexual behaviour. The paper found that sexual content in the television has a ‘profound real-life effect’. This is because Sexual initiation is an important social and health issue and that portrayals of sex on entertainment Television (TV) in Kenya may contribute to precocious adolescent sex.Television viewing can either reinforce norms or offer insights into alternative ways of thinking. The paper sought to investigate TV influence on the sexual behaviour of adolescents by addressing the following three fundamental concerns, (1) how television influences sexual behaviour of adolescents,(2) the extent to which TV viewing may determine the sexual behaviour of adolescents, and (3) the potential dangers associated with exposure to sexual content on TV. The paper found that adolescents often seek sexual information from television content rather than their parents or other adults by being attracted to programs with sexual content. The paper concluded by focusing on the urgent need to address television influence on adolescents sexual behaviour by providing them with critical interpretation and communication skills in multimedia environments.

Abstract: The applicability of magnetic susceptibility measurements was tested to detect soil contamination from a waste site deposit in the topsoil in the vicinity of the Independence Hall, Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Kumasi. Magnetic susceptibility (volume specific) measurements of the near surface topsoil (~ 15 cm top layer) were taken along four radial profiles from the centre of the 100 m2 deposit at 1 m intervals using the Bartington MS2 (MS2D Field Loop Sensor) magnetic susceptibility system. The results of the measurements showed that the near surface soil around the waste site deposit lies in the region of paramagnetic and (canted) anti- ferromagnetic materials. The average magnetic susceptibility values recorded along profiles taken in the direction of run-off was 35010-5 SI, and this was about 7 times higher than that observed along the other profiles. Atmospheric particulates from vehicular emissions and other contaminants from the waste site infiltrate the soil through the agency of rainfall. This result will be useful for understanding the extent of pollution from waste deposition sites. The continuing use of the area as a waste site deposit should be discouraged since it poses a high pollution threat.

Abstract: With the increasing sites for forums, online reviews and social networking, the current trend is to look up reviews, expert opinions and discussions on the Web, so that the user can make an informed decision. Sentiment analysis, also known as opinion mining is the computational study of opinions, sentiments and emotions expressed in natural language processing and text analysis. A basic task is classifying the polarity of a given text at the document or sentence, whether the expressed opinion in a document or a sentence is positive, negative, or neutral. It can help better understand the behavioral patterns of users in social media for applications. First, the behavior of individuals is collected through their unstructured posts in a forum. Second, they are classified as positive/negative posts and perform the clustering. Third, the cases are encoded in terms of features in some numerical form, requiring a transformation from text to numbers and assign the positive and negative values to each word to classify the word in the document. Data are collected from which includes a range of 75 different topic forums.

Abstract: The removal efficacy of three synthetic zeolite materials for the selective removal of metal ions from crude oil was investigated. The zeolite materials used for the study include; zeolite A, zeolite Y and zeolite K-L. Nickel, vanadium and sulphur were the target metals due to the problems they pose during the hydroprocessing of crude oil. The result shows that, zeolite A is able to remove all the metal ions considered (nickel, vanadium and sulphur) at concentrations of 0.035ppm, 0.25ppm and 51.13ppm respectively. Zeolite Y and zeolite K-L showed removal of nickel and sulfur, at concentrations of 0.004ppm and 52.58ppm respectively for the Y zeolite and 0.011 and 43.23ppm respectively for the K-L zeolite. The later zeolites were unable to remove vanadium from the crude oil. The study thus showed the selectivity of the synthetic zeolites for the different metal ions.

Abstract: A pot experiment was performed to determine the effect of pendimethalin amended with different fertilizers (NPK and vermicompost) on soil enzyme activities: FDAH (fluorescein diacetate ), dehydrogenase, acid and alkaline phosphatise with different concentrations of pendimethalin (500,1000 and 1500gai.).Pots were also filled with recommended rates of NPK and vermicompost under wheat plants. Among the soil enzymes dehydrogenase and FDAH were the least tolerant to the effect of the herbicide, whereas alkaline were the most tolerant one. The high herbicide dose proved deleterious for soil enzymes as compared to other two concentrations. While the use of vermicompost as compared to NPK proved superior in enhancing enzyme activities, which may have exerted a positive effect on wheat yield as compared to herbicide use only.

Abstract: Anuran tadpoles develop in water and depend on the food available in the system for nourishment and energy necessary for completion of their life cycle. Tadpoles of Leptobrachium smithi were collected from permanent running water systems from Rosekandy Tea estate in Cachar district, Assam. Taxonomic identification of the tadpoles was done by rearing them to adult stage under laboratory condition. Physico-chemical variables of water from where the tadpoles are collected were also analyzed. Tadpoles of different developmental stages 25-27, 28-30 and 31-40 (Gosner,1960) were selected for study. A qualitative analysis of food consumed showed that diet is basically composed of algae and detritus. A total of 30 genera belonging to five classes i.e. Bacillariophyceae, Chlorophyceae, Cyanophyceae, Euglenophyceae and Desmideaceae were recorded. The percent abundance and percent frequency of occurrences of different food items show that significant difference exists between the three different developmental stages but food items were almost similar in the different stages. Bacillariophyceae, Chlorophyceae and Euglenophyceae were important food in all the stages. The diet preference and choice of algae as food indicates that the conservation of habitat in terms of algal diversity is essential for the survival and completion of life cycle of the tadpoles and for successful survival of the anurans.

Abstract: Recovering of text from badly degraded document images is a very difficult task due to the very high inter/intra-variation between the document background and the foreground text of different document images. In this paper, we propose a robust document image binarization technique that addresses these issues by using inversion gray scale image contrast. The Inversion image contrast is a done by first converting the input image to invert image and then finding the contrast of the inverted image to differentiate text and background variation caused by different types of document degradations. In the proposed technique, an adaptive contrast map is first constructed for an input degraded document image. The contrast map is then converted to grayscale image so as to clearly identify the text stroke from background and foreground pixels. The document text is further segmented by a local threshold that is estimated based on the intensities of detected text stroke edge pixels within a local window. The proposed method is simple, robust, and involves minimum parameter tuning. Several challenging bad quality document images also showthe superior performance of our proposed method, compared with other techniques.

Abstract: A query optimizer is a core component of any Database Management System. Multiple approaches have been suggested which were based on framework of classical query evaluation procedures that heavily dependent on metadata. There are computational environments where metadata acquisition and support is very expensive. In this paper an optimization technique for complex queries using case based reasoning (machine learning technique) in ubiquitous computing environment is deliberated. In this technique a new problem is solved by finding a similar past case, and reusing it in the new problem situation. As CBR is an approach to incremental, sustained learning, since a new experience is retained each time a problem has been solved, making it immediately available for future problems which in return may create a bulky case base. Thus we were proposing a technique of dynamic deletion of irrelevant cases from case base. Through which system can detect the inappropriate cases and replace them with new case in order to maintain size of case base.

Abstract: In the micro-grid system, it is particularly complicated to maintain the critical load with continuous power supply. The proposed micro-wind energy conversion system with battery energy storage is used to exchange the controllable real and reactive power in the grid and to sustain the power quality norms at the point of common coupling. The generated microwind power can be stored in the batteries at low power demand hours. In this scheme, inverter control is executed with hysteresis current control mode to achieve the faster dynamic switchover for the support of critical load. The combination of battery storage with micro-wind energy generation system (μWEGS), which will synthesize the output waveform by injecting or absorbing reactive power and enable the real power flow required by the load. The system reduces the burden on the conventional source and utilizes μWEGS and battery storage power under critical load constraints. The system provides rapid response to support the critical loads. The scheme can also be operated as a stand-alone system in case of grid failure like a uninterrupted power supply. The system is simulated in MATLAB/SIMULINK and results are presented.

Abstract: While considering the optimization in the geometry of the leaf spring, it can be said that the design of leaf spring is quiet thickness sensitive due to its relative dimensions & the loading direction. Hence stress analysis of a mono leaf spring is done by F.E.M. before and after changing the variation of its thickness along the length. The variation of thickness considered initially is linear. After careful study it was judged that if the thickness is varied parabolically along the length of the leaf spring, better results can be obtained.

Abstract: Geminiviruses are a group of plant viruses that contain circular single stranded (ss) DNA genomes encapsidated in small twinned icosahedral capsids .The virus DNA A plus strand encodes the coat protein (CP/AV1) essential for viral transmission by whiteflies (Bemisia tabaci)[4]. Jatropha has been found to have strong molluscicidal activity and the latex to be strongly inhibitory to watermelon mosaic virus. It is also listed as a homicide, piscicide and raticide. Jatropha is considered as a poor quality fuelwood since the soft wood burns too rapidly. In Africa, Jatropha is widely planted as a “living fence” and hedgerows to protect food crops from damage by livestock and as a windbreak to prevent soil erosion moisture depletion.

Abstract: Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) is an attack on the privacy of clients of a particular web site which can lead to a total breach of security when the person’s details are stolen or manipulated in any way. The CSRF attack involves three parties; the attacker, a client and the web site. The goal of this kind of attack is to steal the client cookies, or any other sensitive information, which can identify the client with the web site. With the token of the legitimate user at hand, the attacker can proceed to act as the user in his interaction with the site. Cross-Site Request Forgery attacks occur when a malicious web site causes a user’s web browser to perform an unwanted action on a trusted site. In this way, the attacker can impersonate the user. In this paper, the researcher investigated on the possibility of utilizing dynamic passwords to avert CSRF. The results obtained indicate that 94% of the respondents indicated that the dynamic passwords are 75% perfect in CSRF prevention.

Abstract: This paper studies the structure and properties of platinum complexes of dithiocarbamate derivatives. Dithiocarbamate complexes are found to be very stable and are highly water soluble due to the presences of hydrophilic moiety in their structure. Such complexes have been used as metal complexing species for several decades. They form chelates with almost all metals ions in the Periodic table and have found numerous applications on biological, agricultural, electronics and act as stabilizing agents in electroless copper plating. In this work, ethylenediamine and diethanolamine dithiocarbamates are prepared and complexed with Pt(II) salts to form stable complexes. The complexes are characterized by Rapid Elemental Analysis. The structure of the stable complexes are confirmed with Electronic and I.R Spectral Analysis.

Abstract: The paper proposes a new approach for detecting alive human beings in devastating environments using a low cost autonomous robot. The proposed alive human body detection system uses a specific set of sensors that gives information about the presence of an alive human body and a low quality camera to acquire a video of scene of the environment. Having detected an obstacle or alive human body, the set of sensors trigger the camera to show live scene. The video is then displayed on a PC or a laptop at base station and processed at MATLAB for further analysis. The alive human detection system proposed in this paper is highly reliable as it is using a set of sensors for detection. The data and information required to be acquired and processed for rescue operation are less. So, it is very cost effective and faster to be applied in real-time operating environment.

Abstract: The levels of six trace metals namely iron, lead, manganese, copper, zinc and nickel were investigated in drinking water and groundwater sources in Ota, Nigeria. Detected concentrations of Mn, Cu and Zn were below the World Health organization and Standard Organization of Nigeria maximum permissible limits. Fe (92%) and Ni (53%) in some drinking water and groundwater sources were found in concentrations that exceeded the maximum permissible limits for these metals. Notably, the levels of Pb were below detection limit in all the bottled, well and borehole water, with exception of the hospital borehole, while the swimming pool had high concentrations of Fe (0.88 mg/L), Pb (0.21 mg/L) and Ni (0.19mg/L) compared to SON (0.30 mg/L), WHO (0.01 mg/L) and WHO (0.07 mg/L) respectively. Pollution indices indicated significant pollution of Pb, Fe and Ni. Overall, the mean metal levels in the sampled water sources followed a descending order, Fe>Cu>Zn>Ni>Pb>Mn. Some of the drinking water and groundwater sources could be considered safe for drinking, but proactive measures should be taken to check the levels of Fe, Pb and Ni in the swimming pool.

Abstract: Due to the rapid technological progress, the consumption of electric energy increases continuously. But the transmission systems are not extended to the same extent because building of new lines is difficult for environmental as well as political reasons. Hence, the systems are driven closer to their limits resulting in congestions and critical situations endangering the system security. Power Flow Control devices such as Flexible AC Transmission Systems (FACTS) provide the opportunity to influence power flows and voltages and therefore to enhance system security, e.g. by resolving congestions and improving the voltage profile. Several kinds of FACTS controllers have been commissioned in various parts of the world. This paper presents various types of FACTS devices such as: load tap changers, phase-angle regulators, static VAR compensators, thyristor-controlled series compensators, interphase power controllers, static compensators, and unified power flow controllers. There classification based on steady sate and transient state stability and Power electronic and control technology have been studied.

Abstract: The research was carried out to minimize nitrate leachate in RBE soil by in cooperating green manures (Sesbania rostrata, Gliricidia and sunhemp) and Azolla. The soil samples for experiment was collected from non agricultural lands in Thavashikulam, Vavuniya. Experiment was carried out with RCBD with six treatments such as Control(T1), Urea (T2), Sun Hemp (T3) Azolla (T4) ) Gliricidia (T5) and Sesbania rostrata (T6), and three replicates. The results were analyzed by ANOVA for a Random Complete Block design (RCBD) to determine significance of differences (P>0.05) between the treatments. Duncun mean comparison was carried out by using SAS package. Nitrate losses were significantly (P=0.022) differ from each treatments and highest amount of loss was observed in Azolla (19.66mg) followed by Urea(17.54mg), sespania (15.34), Giliricidia ( 13.14)and sunhemp( 11.2 ). Nitrate losses were less in green manure(Sesbania, Sunhemp & Gliricidia) added soil than inorganic fertilized (urea) soil with in one month period. Green manures ( Sesbania, Sunhemp and Giliricidia) could be utilized to minimize nitrate loses in RBE soil except Azolla. Azolla could be used as bio fertilizer in wet land paddy soil as it is considered as super plant to fix atmospheric nitrogen (5-6% of nitrogen) and Nitrate loss was higher in Azolla than urea in RBE soil. The field study could be carried out to confirm the finding to implement the findings in farmers field.

Abstract: Human capital is just one of an organization’s intangible assets. It is basically all of the competencies and commitment of the people within an organization i.e. their skills, experience, potential and capacity. Human capital management is a reciprocal relationship between supply and demand: employees, contractors and consultants invest their own human capital into business enterprises and the business enterprises need to manage the supplier. Any organization interested in its performance will naturally ask how well they are managing this asset to ensure maximum return on their investment. In the same way, all employees, contractors, consultants and providers of human capital want to ensure they are getting the appropriate return for their own human capital investing through salary, bonuses, benefits, and so on. The aim of this paper is to study of nature of human capital management and its strategic role in achieving of competitive advantage for the organization and it is a review paper. The results of this study show the strategic importance of human capital and managing them in organizations.

Abstract: In this paper, we analyse two-unit cold standby system with instructions and post-repair inspection. On the failure of a unit, an expert repairman comes with his assistant and gives instructions to his assistant for repairing the unit. After getting instructions, the assistant repairman immediately starts the repair of the failed unit. When the assistant completes the repair, the inspection is carried out by the expert to see whether the unit repaired by his assistant is perfectly repaired or not. If not, the expert himself repairs it perfectly. Various measures of the system effectiveness are obtained by making use of semi-Markov processes and regenerative point technique. Study through graphs is also made.

Abstract: Concepts have been interpreted differently by historians in different times to give a comprehensive view of the past. We are familiar with political history, social history, economic history and administrative history. Maritime history or Sea Power history is yet another concept, which has been gaining momentum and currency these days. Maritime history has become a tool in the hands of several Indian historians who are interested in Indo- Portuguese history. The study of maritime history enables to come closer to the crucial dynamics of historical process. Maritime history embraces many aspects of history, such as international politics, navigation, oceanic currents, maritime transportation, coastal society, development of ports and port-towns, sea-borne trade and commerce, port-hinterland relations and so on. As far as India and the Indian Ocean regions are concerned, maritime studies have a great relevance in the exchange of culture, establishment of political power, the dynamics of society, trade and commerce and religion of these areas.

Abstract: Business Intelligence (BI) is any information derived from analytics of existing data that can be used strategically in the organization. Data Mining is a subset of BI or a means/process of deriving BI from data using statistical modeling of the data. It can be used to find relationships/correlations between the various data elements captured which can be used to improve business performance or at least understand what is happening better. With the rapid exponential growth in size and number of available Databases in commercial, industrial, administrative and other applications, it is mandatory and important to examine how to extract knowledge from voluminous data. Mining Association rules in transactional or relational databases has recently attracted a lot of attention in database communities. The task is to derive a set of strong association rules in the form of “A1^….^ m=>B1^…^Bm” where Ai(for i €{1,2,.....m}) and Bi(for j € {1,2,.....,n}) are set of attribute-values, from the relevant data sets in a databases.

Abstract: Areca palm (Areca catechu L.) of the family Arecaceae is an important commercial crop cultivated in the tropics like the Pacific, Asia and east Africa. Many insect and non insect pests induce serious damage to areca palms in different parts of the world. The Red Palm Mite, Raoiella indica heavily infests palms of nursery stage and young palms and induces damage by sucking sap from the frond leaves of young palms during hot dry weather. This polyphagous species of false spider mite rapidly spreads through the Neotropical region where the mite damages economically and ecologically important plants. The present study is focussed on incidence, distribution pattern and injurious status of R.indica on areca palms. Field sampling was conducted fortnightly for the period of March, 2013 to September, 2013 on areca palms cultivated in two districts viz. Malappuram and Wayanadu of North Kerala, South India. Results of the study revealed significantly high population densities of the mite on areca palms with peak population in March/April. High numbers of the mite could be observed on the bottom frond leaves than the middle and top leaves. The present study also indicated that the distribution pattern of the red palm mite was relatively high in the Thenhipalam region of the Malappuram district when compared to other regions surveyed.

Abstract: This study determined the influence of socio-cultural and economic environment on adolescents’ sexual behavior. Knowledge, attitude and beliefs were used as mediating variables to environment factor and adolescents’ sexual behavior. The study used the descriptive-correlation research design. Two hundred ninety adolescents ages 11 -19 years old from two high schools and two universities from Region IV-A in the Philippines, chosen through simple random sampling were the respondents of the study. The results show that socio-cultural (school) environment, attitude and knowledge were significantly related to sexual behavior. Meanwhile, family and community socio-economic environments were negatively related to sexual behavior. Sexual behavior of adolescents differed when their age and gender were considered. Males who are in their late adolescence tend to engage more in risky sexual behaviors than those who were in their mid- adolescence and in their early adolescence. Attitude, age, gender and economic environment predict adolescent’s sexual behavior. Based on model generated socio-cultural environment, socio-economic environment had indirect effect to sexual behaviors of the adolescents. Knowledge fully mediates the relationship between socio-cultural (school) environment and sexual behavior. Beliefs and attitude were not found to be significant mediators.

Abstract: South Asian region is facing the challenges of political instabilities, social unrest, insecurities due to whatever is happening in political scene since last few decades. Present study focuses on the trends of globalization in South Asian English novels with reference to Indian, Pakistani and Afghani novels. South Asia is particularly the most targeted region due to its geo-political and strategic standing in global scenario. Moreover stereotypical notions such as nationalism, fundamentalisms have compartmentalized people of this region in suffocated cabins of cast, creed, religion, nation and culture. In such a critical time a piece of literature can no longer remain a mere piece of story that serve to entertain, rather it is morally bound to fill the gaps in order to break boundaries that lead to destruction. Amitav Gosh a renowned Indian novelist in his novel The Shadow Lines (1988) negates the concepts of national, social and cultural boundaries. Our Lady Of Alice Bhati (2011) is a Pakistani novel by Muhammad Hanif in which he finds common grounds between two religions on the basis of humanity and nature.

Abstract: Three-fourths of the world’s energy is consumed in cities and more than half of it is consumed in buildings. The construction sector is one of the most traditional & cost oriented industries and it makes much sense to bring innovations that are environmentally and economically sustainable. Sustainability in the construction sector or in other words green buildings are mainly focused on the reduction of emissions, construction of energy efficient houses and maintaining thermal comfort of the occupants. However we can further innovate to excel in terms of zeroed environment impacts and resource optimization. To comprehend the innovations which have happened in green buildings, this study entitled “Innovations in Design- A Study of Green Buildings” was conducted. It focuses on technologies and strategies used and catalysts and hindrances faced while adopting Innovation category in green buildings certified under the prevalent green rating systems in India i.e. LEED and GRIHA.

Abstract: Anabolic-androgenic steroids (AAS) are the synthetic derivatives of testosterone which are widely accepted as performance enhancers and illicitly self-administered to increase muscle mass and physical endurance. The use of anabolic steroids by sportsmen and teenagers has increased to such extents thereby raising questions about their hepatotoxicity. The present study elucidates the adverse effects of AAS when administered at supraphysiological doses. Its focus is on the effects of massive doses of nandrolone decanoate, the most commonly abused AAS on the levels of the two important enzymatic liver biomarkers, aspartate aminotransferase (AST) and alanine aminotransferase (ALT) in albino mice. Tissue samples (liver tissue) were collected from normal control and nandrolone decanoate treated (2.5mg twice a week, administered intramuscularly for 13 weeks) albino mice and AST/ ALT levels of liver tissue were measured by following the method of Reitman and Frankel (1957).

Abstract: The study examined the chemical composition of fresh, sundried tender leaves and husks of cowpea (Vigna unguiculata). The tender leaves and husks were parboiled and sundried. Proximate, micronutrient, phytochemical and antinutrient compositions were determined using standard procedures. Dried leaves had higher protein content than those of fresh leaves (FL) and dried husks (HU). Dried leaves (DL) and husks had lower fat content than the control (1.31 and 0.75 vs 9.10% (p<0.05). Sun drying increased the ash in both the DL and HU. Carbohydrate increased more the in HU than in the DL. The micronutrients in both DL and HU were reduced by sun drying. Tannins, saponins, flavonoids and polyphenols were decreased in the processed samples. Antinutrients were low. Haemaglutinin a food toxicant had slight increases. Cowpea leaves and husks have high nutrient potentials to justify the cultivation, processing, consumption and diversification.

Abstract: R.K Narayan and C.F Ramuz are two writers belonging to two countries known for their pluralistic natures: linguistic, ethnic and religious. In this form of diversity we see the simultaneous valorization of a cosmopolitan tendency as well as of the regional specificities. Such a situation that seems to be positive for society proves to be problematic in literature as universal and regional specificities begin opposing each other. A writer’s work is faced with the dilemma of being termed either as regional literature or world literature. The former is considered to be inferior to the latter. It is this dichotomy that is faced by R.K Narayan and C.F Ramuz. In this study we will investigate the theoretical framework, if any exists, forming the basis of such a categorization; the objective being, the determination of the factors that decide whether an author should be considered as a regional or a universal writer.

Abstract: English is a widely spoken language today. It has often been referred to as ‘global language’, the lingua franca of the modern era and currently the language most often taught as a second language around the world. English in India is used not only for communicating with the outside world, but also for inter-state and intrastate communication. Because of the great ethnic and linguistic diversity found within our nation, English acts as an indispensable ‘link’ language. With the Information Technology revolution and most software and operating systems being developed in the English language, a new utility for written and oral communication in the English language has emerged. English is said to be the world’s most important language having communicative and educative value. English is used all over the world not out of any imposition but because of the realization that it has certain advantages.

Abstract: Unmanned Aerial Vehicle become popular and very useful today. Unmanned Aerial Vehicle types have fixed wing UAV and rotary wing UAV. Among rotary wing UAV, helicopter type is chosen to implement the mathematical model for UAH. Since these helicopter mathematical model is very complex and inflexible, simple model “minimum-complexity helicopter simulation math model” (MCHSMM) is used to develop a non-linear mathematical model R-50 helicopter for this work. This modeling consists of three blocks: (1) Rigid body dynamics, (2) Force and torque dynamics, and (3) Flapping and thrust dynamics. Each of these are implemented in MATALB SIMULINK. There are four control inputs: ulat (lateral control input), ulong (longitudinal control input), ucol (collective control input) and uped (pedal control input). By alternating positive, negative, and zero to four control inputs, the resultant responses of positions, Euler angles, translatory velocities, angular velocities and flapping angles are simulated. The stability analysis for UAH are also analyzed and simulation results provides the real world approaches for UAH system.

Abstract: The overall objective with this paper is to evaluate a method for designing nonlinear controllers in aircrafts with concern in robustness against modeling insecurities and also to minimize the design effort. The later objective is of great importance since there exists, in the industry, an ambition to automatize the design for as far extend as possible. The nonlinear method, State Dependent Riccati Equation (SDRE), used in this work is a nonlinear version of classic LQ design and both are evaluated and compared for a few flying conditions. Also another nonlinear control method is tested. LQ and SDRE show equal performance during both looping and more complicated maneuvers, such as high angle of attack wind-vector roll. Further it is possible to automatize the LQ design as well as it is possible for SDRE. Still SDRE is preferable since it will always be somewhat more accurate than LQ. A Monte Carlo simulation is made on LQ and SDRE showing that the model is robust against relatively large modeling error of 40%.

Abstract: The output frequency of a self excited induction generator (SEIG) driven by wind turbine and supplies static load are controlled, using MATLAB/simulink. The PID controller which employed for turbine rotor speed control and hence the frequency regulation is proposed and simulated by MATLAB software package. The modern wind turbines implement pitch control in order to tap maximum energy at wind speeds lower than rated wind speed. They are simple and rugged in construction and offer impressive efficiency under varying operating conditions. The PID controller which employed for turbine rotor speed control and hence the frequency regulation is proposed. In this paper, a turbine blade pitch control has been assumed for this purpose.

Abstract: The Spy generally developed to monitor and record suspicious movement in a company during the closing hours of the company. Organizations today face new and more insidious threats than they ever have in the past. To protect personnel and infrastructure alike requires a level of vigilance not previously anticipated. A new technology called Intelligent Video Surveillance employs state of the art computer vision technology to automate the process of watching web cam - making video a proactive defense sensor. One approach is to detect and recognize the actions of individuals within a crowded scene.
