Abstract: In this paper an attempt is made to assess parents’ attitude towards offering of sexuality education at schools. The study was conducted during 2016 in five districts of Tamil Nadu. Totally 529 respondents were interviewed. A multistage sampling method was adopted to select the target population - ever married couples living with at least one child in the age group of 13-19 years. In the study area majority of the study population had the opinion to introduce the family life education to the students however the female respondents little more favour to introduce the sexuality education for students than the male respondents. It also noticed that among the religious groups, Muslims less favoured to teach sexuality education for students. Irrespective of the respondents’ background condition majority of them were favoured to introduce family life education. Hence it is recommended that the teaching of sexuality education in schools should be made compulsory at national level. However it should be age appropriate and culturally sensitive keeping with the current SRHR needs of young people in India.

Abstract: The shortage of physicians in rural America has been an ongoing topic for decades. Most scientific literature has addressed the lack of primary care physicians in rural areas. However, there is a substantial amount of data which also shows a scarcity of specialty physicians in these regions. This shortage of specialized doctors has not been as represented in scientific research. Certain demographics in rural areas reveals the need for specific care which can only be provided by specialized physicians. The purpose of this article is to identify the current state of healthcare in rural areas and to identify solutions needed to increase specialized care in rural and underserved communities. This paper will serve as an excellent example not only to medical professionals and medical management teams, but also for legislatures approving the local and federal laws in the United States of America.

Abstract: In 21st century, sustainable development has a colossal and crucial role to play in global environmental apprehensions such as GHG emission from fossil fuel combustion, damage to the environment by the haphazard disposal of waste. Under these current circumstances, biogas production technology has flourished and has proved to be a meritorious success story today. Biogas is produced by microbial anaerobic digestion of organic wastes such as animal waste, plant material, sewage crops etc. Biogas principally comprises of 50% -60% of methane and 25%-45% of CO2. In the recent past, research on this technology has been limited to some extent due to the complex phenomenon existed with various factors and parameters influencing it.

Abstract: Mobile phones are most common way of communication and accessing internet based services. A mobile ad-hoc network (MANET) is a self-configuring infrastructure less network of mobile devices connected by wireless. Essentially ad hoc network is a collection of nodes communicating with each other by forming a multi-hop network. Each must onward traffic unconnected to its own use and consequently be a router. The primary aim is a MANET is to build the each device to incessantly preserve the information necessary to correctly route traffic. Mobile Ad-Hoc Network (MANET) is often susceptible to security attacks due to its features of open medium, limited physical security, dynamic changing topology and cooperative algorithms, lack of centralized monitoring and organization point, energy constrained operations and often lacks of a clear line of defense.

Abstract: The aspiration and cultural dominance of one ethnic group to carve out an exclusive territorial and political space based on being indigenous to the land excludingthe other community as the ‘other’ or ‘outsider’ who has historically been part of the same territorial and political space has resulted in creating strife in the society. The Bodo- non Bodos conflict in Bodo Territorial Autonomous District (BTAD) area has been marked by separatist insurgencies and violence which could be seen as a manifestation of preserving a distinct identity of being indigenous to the area. The policy framework by the government of India has further aggravated the conflict scenario in the region. The construction of the ‘us’ and ‘them’ and interplay of politics have led to fragmentation of the political system along ethnic lines. Violence is a manifestation of secessionist tendencies related to conflict in the region.

Abstract: There is no recommended low cost feed available from fry to fingerling stage of Indian carps in Sri Lanka. Hence, this study was aimed on utilizing locally available aquatic plants Ipomea aquatica and Hydrilla vercillata and discarded dry fishmeal in feeds of Catla catla fry to cut down the feed cost. The experiment was conducted in a complete randomized design. Three experimental feeds were formulated using different protein sources while keeping other ingredients constant (T1= 1:1 discarded dried fish meal: Hydrilla vercillata, T2= 1:1 discarded dried fish meal: Ipomea aquatica, T3 = discarded dried fishmeal) and a commercial feed was used as the control. Catla catla fry were stocked at a density of 75 fry per m2 in 12 pond units. Fry were fed at the rate of 5% of the body weight.

Abstract: Endophytic microbes are considered as an outstanding source of bioactive natural products because there are so many of them occupying millions of unique biological niches growing in different types of environment. Plants infected with endophytes are often healthier than endophytes free ones. These endophytes are the prominent source of secondary metabolites similar to the plant tissue on which these endophytes are grown. The present study illustrates about the isolation and screening of endophytes from aerial parts (leaves and stems) of Mentha piperita plant. A total of 4 different bacterial endophytes were isolated from leaves which were marked as L1, L2, L3 and L4 while only 2 different types of bacterial endophytic cultures were isolated from stems of the plant which were marked as S1 and S2.

Abstract: Women empowerment plays a vital role in the overall development of the society. In India various programmes and policies initiated by the government for the women empowerment and NABARD played an essential role in empowering women through the initiation of Self Help Groups and SHG-Bank linkage programmes and participation of women in SHGs created a considerable impact on their social as well as economic empowerment and brought a substantial change in the life of women at the fundamental level. The present paper is an attempt to analyze the contribution of Self help groups in women empowerment in India. As per the study the main reason behind the progress of Self Help Groups are: its credit linkage with poor and vulnerable people, it is very helpful in building up the financial status of its member households and above all, it has achieved success to develop the self dependence and confidence among poor and rural women which leads the development of the livelihood of the rural people especially women. Besides that the study also describes some of the constraints of women empowerment especially in rural areas and it is the utmost priority of the SHG programme and government to overcome the constraints to achieve inclusive growth through women empowerment

Abstract: Due to rapid urbanization and industrialization, urban areas all over the world, are subjected to various problems like rampant drinking water shortage, traffic congestions, rising level of noise and air pollution, solid waste management issues etc. Among this, solid waste management is the most threatening one. The residential wastes constitute the lion’s share of urban solid waste. Changing lifestyles will pose special waste management challenges, as waste management systems in the urban areas of developing countries are incapable of frequent adjustment to match these lifestyle changes. The difficulty has been aggravated by lack of effective legislation, inadequate funds and services, and inability of municipal authorities to provide the services cost-efficiently. This paper attempts to figure out various sustainable options to reduce the waste management issues in the urban residential areas through the waste footprint concept, which is a subset of ecological footprint in the environment management tool- ecological footprint analysis.

Abstract: The present work assessed the genetic divergence among the genotypes of Costus specious collected from five blocks of Balaghat district of M.P., India by RAPD (Randomly Amplified Polymorphic DNA) using Seventeen random declaimer primers as the plant was found to adored its therapeutic efficacy in Ayurveda and traditional system of medicines and is most important medicinal plants used in Arthritis. A deprogram was constructed for cluster analysis using an un-weighted pair group method with arithmetic means (UPGMA) grouped the genotypes into 2 major clusters based on win boot. Out of the seventeen random primers used for studying genetic divergence, twelve primers were found to be polymorphic. Out of 17 primers, 1 was found to be 100% polymorphic generating a total of 21 alleles with an average of 4.2 products per polymorphic primer. The total numbers of alleles were amplified 393 and percent polymorphic was 43.36 for tall seventeen markers. Genetic similarity/dissimilarity among genotypes was evaluated by generating a similarity matrix based on Jaccard’s co-efficient ranging from 56 to 0.70. Results showed that both environmental and genetic factors were constrained in observing variations. The degree of genetic variations detected among the accessions of Costus specious suggested that RAPD marker advent seemed to be best suited for assessing with high accuracy the genetic relationships among distinct Costus specious accessions.

Abstract: Shopping for household items is a tedious task since different members of a family will have different needs. If each member decides to go for shopping individually, it might be inefficient and time consuming. Some might prefer going to a shopping mall to purchase all the items that they need but since technology like Global Positioning System (GPS) doesn’t work indoors accurately, people will find it difficult to navigate to the required store.Sometimes the user might find several items that fits the requirements and might have difficulties trying to choose between them. The purpose of this research is to overcome such issues and improve the overall experience of shopping with the use of an android application. This application wouldallow the users within a family to create and share a shopping list so that one member of the family could purchase items needed for the entire family.The application alsohelps the user to navigate to the store that sells those items within a shopping mall using Bluetooth low energy (BLE) beacons. Other functionalities of this application would be to be notified about the offers available at the stores based on the user as they enter a store and also to scan the barcodes of the items available and share reviews about those items. These reviews will be sorted using an algorithm so that others would find it easy when making purchasing decisions.

Abstract: Performance of a solar rack dryer augmented with heat storage materials was evaluated in terms of temperature and humidity developments as well as quality characteristics of dried foods. Granite chips and granite rubbles were used as sensible heat storage materials. Also paraffin wax in aluminum trays and enclosed in PVC pipes were integrated into the collector as sensible and latent heat storage. Trials were carried out under natural and forced air draft conditions. Results showed that the solar rack dryer coupled with flat a plate collector containing granite rubbles, granite chips and paraffin wax collectively stabilized drying air temperature during the day time at 50oC, thus increasing the effective drying hours. However, marginally acceptable organoleptic quality of dehydrated foods indicated that the dryer further requires additional heat source to supply necessary heat during nights, and whenever necessary during daytime to obtain optimum product qualities.

Abstract: Innovation is generally regarded as acriticalsuccess factor in sustaining growth and competitiveness of firmsin domestic and global markets.This study aims to investigate the innovation practicesand identify factors that hinder innovation capabilityof Large and Medium Enterprises (LMEs)that are based in the eastern economic corridor of Ethiopia-Dire Dawa. Questionnaires were based on Oslo Manual: Guidelines for Collecting and Interpreting Innovation Data. The data were analyzed using percentage, correlations and meanscore; and presented in graph and tableformat. The results of this study indicate that technological innovation practices of LMEs are remarkably low.Cooperation aimed at using external knowledge with universities and research institutes are alsoweak. Collaborative research is almost nulland their recent cooperation with universities is limited to trainings. Most LMEs don’t have written innovation plans and don’t placeefforts in Research and Development(R and D) except in cement and chemical products producing firms.Firms’ performance is triggered by their efforts in marketing and organizational;andregions’ natural resource. It is also revealed a positive relationship between efforts in internal R and D and being exporter.The major barriers of technological innovation LMEs are: too high cost of innovation, lack of skilled personnel,lack of innovation culture and perceived economic risk; among others.

Abstract: Determination of soil erosion risk with change in land use/land cover is significantly important for its ecological, social and economic impacts. Soil erosion in study area depends on both environmental and anthropogenic factors. To measure such factors, revised universal soil loss equation (RUSLE) model in ArcGIS 10.3 has been employed in the study area. In this study, potential soil erosion risk (RUSLEpotential) determined by environmental factors i.e. rainfall erosivity factor (R), soil erodibility factor (K) and slope length and slope steepness factor (LS) has been calculated. Land use/land cover factor (C) for 1990, 2000, 2010 and 2015 has been computed to measure its change with time. Soil erosion control factor (P) has been computed. Combining RUSLEpotential with C factor and P factor resulted in actual soil erosion risk (RUSLEactual) for four different years.

Abstract: Kashmir is known as paradise on earth.The valley of Kashmir well-known for its beauty and celebrity is a theme well worthy of a poet. Nowhere in Asia, nor even in the remaining quarters of the globe, can the parallel be found of such an earthly paradise, a paradise in itself but made doubly beautiful by its surroundings.Sports and Tourism constitutes one of the main sources of income for vast sections of Kashmiri populationthe sports sector received a serious jolt with the outbreak and spread of militancy from 1989 onwards. Sports industry of Kashmir valley suffered tremendously due to violent militant activities. Once militancy gained momentum the sports to the valley declined substantially. In this study only period of 10 years(2006-2015) were considered. It was shown in the study that due to disturbance in Kashmir in year 2008 , 2009 and 2010 the participants shows decline in number almost 15.27%and in the year 2014 and 2015 when there was decline in the militancy there was gradual increase in the participantsalmost 26.6 % in the Kashmir valley.

Abstract: This is a conceptual paper that examines service quality and student satisfaction in higher learning institutions. It presents the reviews of the literature on the service quality construct in higher education and its influence on student satisfaction. The theoretical perspective of this paper included the Gap Model of service quality and the hierarchical service quality model. The various instruments for measuring service quality in higher education have been discussed briefly with a summary of the measurement instruments by different authors and their dimensions provided. The empirical studies have indicated that there is no consensus among authors on the dimensions that should be used to evaluate service quality in the higher education sector and hence different dimensions and measurement scales have been used by different authors. This paper concludes that service quality in higher education has a significant influence on student satisfaction and therefore higher education institutions should put in place mechanisms to collect student feedback to enable them to determine the service quality dimensions of interest to their students so that they can make the necessary improvements on the relevant service quality dimensions.

Abstract: Improvement in health service delivery is a necessity condition for the enhancement in Human Capital Development and high level of life expectancy. However, this is very hard to achieve especially in developing countries. Therefore, this study examined the relationship between life expectancy and Government Expenditure in Nigeria between 1980 and 2015. The data for the study were sourced from Central Bank of Nigeria and Bureau of Statistics Annual Reports. Vector Autoregressive Distributive Model (VAR) was used as estimation technique. Results from forecast Error Variance Decomposition showed that the highest shocks to the life expectancy were accounted for by the share of government expenditure. The second in rank was the number of physicians and carbon dioxide also contributed immensely to low life expectancy in Nigeria. From the results, the contribution of real growth rate of income was indirect and marginal. Other variables such as Death and Birth rate did not contribute significantly to the life expectancy in Nigeria during the study period. Based on these findings, it is recommended that for life expectancy to increase in Nigeria, the share of government expenditure on health should increase and that plantation of grasses and trees should be encouraged to reduce the effect of carbon dioxide.

The experimental design was factorial in split-split plot. The prototype tef grain separating and cleaning machine had the ability to winnow the premature grains, chaff and leaves, which are lighter than grains. It was also capable of reducing time wastage, grains loss, labour requirement and contamination. The performance evaluated in terms of separating efficiency, cleaning efficiency, separation loss and cleaning loss at different sieve slopes, sieve oscillations and feed rates indicate that the separation and cleaning losses increased with increasing sieve oscillation and feed rate for all sieve slopes. But the separation and cleaning efficiencies decreased with increasing sieve oscillations and feed rates at all sieve slopes. The minimum losses and the maximum efficiency were achieved at 5o sieve slope for all sieve oscillations and feed rates. The separation efficiency, cleaning efficiency, separation loss and cleaning loss were 97.94, 98.58, 0.71 and 0.7%, respectively at sieve oscillation of 5 Hz, feed rate of 3 kg/min and sieve slope of 5 degrees. The separation efficiency, cleaning efficiency, separation loss and cleaning loss were 52.71, 39.88, 25.62 and 34.5%, respectively, at sieve oscillation of 20 Hz, at feed rate 12 kg/min and at sieve slope of 5 degree.

Abstract: A Tax is a fee charged or levied by a Government on a product, income, or activity. It is levied on individuals or on goods or services, and then it is called an indirect tax. The main reason for taxation is to finance government expenditure and to redistribute wealth which translates to financing development of the country (Ola, 2001, Bhartia, 2009). The study of the relationship between tax incentives and the performance of the firms, has known a peak during these last decades, mainly with the works of Yonah (2006) and Gurria (2009). As a tool of government policy, tax incentives can be adopted to attract investors who want to increase the profitability of their businesses to promote investment, foster growth and survival of the company. The effect of corporate taxes on performance of companies is one of the central questions in both public finance and development. The manufacturing sector of any economy is considered to be very important as it contribution to the growth of the economy reflects visibly in job creation and improved tax contribution. The liberalization of the Nigerian economy through various home grown and other supporting international policy prescriptions over the past decades changed the structure of the manufacturing sector in Nigeria. The challenges of the manufacturing sector come in a midst of high corporate tax rates.

Abstract: Surface marking of the Arcuate line of Douglas has attained surgical importance not only in the open surgery including rectus abdominis flap harvest and stoma formation but also the laparoscopic surgery such as the total extraperitoneal preperitoneal (TEPP) inguinal hernioplasty. Present study used four surface landmarks (Umbilicus, pubic symphysis, xiphisternum and the line joining the two anterior superior iliac spines) during TEPP hernioplasty to assess the location of the arcuate line. Mean distances of the arcuate line from the umbilicus, pubic symphysis, xiphisternum and interspinous line were 5.376 ± SD 1.62 cm (Range 2.5-11.5 cm), 10.67 ± SD 2.44 (Range 1.5-14.5 cm), 20.11 ± SD 1.88 (Range 15.5-26.5 cm), and 3.71 ± SD 2.32 (Range, -1.5 to 9.5 cm). Arcuate line was found located at 2/3rd of the pubis-to-umbilicus distance and at 1/3rd of the pubis-to-xiphisternum distance, confirming the recent reports. Upper border of the pubic symphysis is recommended as the optimal reference point as compared to other three surface landmarks for surface marking and localization of the Arcuate line of Douglas, albeit with a little caution in the overweight /obese patients.

Abstract: The seasonal fluctuations in various physico-chemical parameters in the water were investigated in the six sampling sites namely Neyyar Dam, Kallikkadu, Mandapathinkadavu, Aruvippuram, Neyyattinkara and Poovar of Neyyar River on the basis of their physiographic distribution during north east monsoon and pre-monsoon. Water temperature broadly fluctuated between 27.00C at Neyyar dam in north east monsoon to 33.20C at Neyyattinkara in pre-monsoon. Though, seasonal influence was marginal, a lowering in pH was generally visible during north east monsoon. In the station near coast, impact of saline intrusion was obvious in the distribution of EC. TDS varied broadly between 20.4mg/l to 16000mg/l, respectively in the reservoir and the Poovar. Correspondingly the chloride also has been gradually increasing towards downstream. In general turbidity is found to be low except occasional high values at Kallikadu. Our study indicates that alkalinity values are very less all along the river during both seasons and total hardness exceeds the prescribed limits in downstream stretches. The samples in the midland and lowland invariably showed considerable concentrations of the nutrient.

Abstract: The study seeks to appraise the role of citizen journalism on publicity of terror attacks in Kenya in a bid to aid Africa in moving towards sustainable security and peace. It aims to achieve this by (1) Evaluating the role citizen journalists’ play as victims in helping terrorists achieve publicity of terror in Kenya. (2) Assessing the role citizen journalist’s play as bystanders in aiding terrorists attain publicity of terror in Kenya and finally, (3)Evaluating the role citizen journalists play as participatory journalists in helping terrorists achieve publicity of terror in Kenya. The study reviewed literature on three major terrorist attacks in Kenya that have happened between 1998 and 2015. In view of the background and literature review, it was established that citizen journalism plays a key role in ensuring that terrorists receive the required attention to pursue their much coveted publicity hence achieving their goals. Also, attributes of citizen journalists as victims, bystanders and participatory journalists all work together for the benefit of terrorist’s publicity in Kenya. The study concluded that, the interplay and harmony of these aspects ensure persuasive publicity is given to terrorists hence helping them achieve their objectives of terrorism. Therefore, there is need to ensure that proper policies and strategies are employed by the communication authority of Kenya and the communication companies to curtail the publicity given to terror attacks by citizen journalists. This will be a step towards achieving sustainable security and peace in Africa.

Abstract: This research studied the sorption capacity of Brachystegia eurycoma seeds (BES) for the removal of heavy metal ions from waste water. The plant seeds was immobilized by entrapping or caging the bio-sorbent within a polymeric matrix of calcium-alginate to produce immobilized Brachystegia eurycoma seeds (IBES) .The sorption efficiencies of heavy metals (Fe2+, Pb2+, Cr2+, Cd2+, Cu2+and Mn2+) were investigated in aqueous solution using the IBES and the residual metal ions in solution was determined using atomic absorption spectrophotometer (AAS). The effect of various parameters such as contact time, pH, ionic strength, initial metal ion concentration and temperature variation on the sorption of the above metal ions were investigated using batch experiments. The result obtained showed that the sorption efficiencies of Pb2+, Cr3+, Cu2+, Cd2+, Fe2+ and Mn2+ by IBES were 97.50%, 67.44%, 81.48%, 98.09%, 79.50% and 94.00% respectively. Result also shows that metal ion sorption increases with increase in contact time; initial metal ion concentration and increase in pH, and decreases with increase in ionic strength. In view of the above result, the abundant but presently wasted Brachystegia eurycoma seeds can be used as a low-cost sorbent for the removal of heavy metal ions in waste water.

Abstract: The discharge of xenobiotic substances like heavy metals into the aquatic systems has deleterious effect on the aquatic organisms including fishes. The present study was designed to see the subtoxic effect of nickel on the fish Channapunctatus. The protein, glucose and cholesterol content of tissues from liver, kidney, brain and ovary were analysed. The alternations in protein contents of all the tissues are significant in the level 0.001in 40ppm nickel concentration. There was significant increase in glucose and cholesterol concentration of all the tissues in between the level 0.001 to 0.01 on exposure to in 40ppm nickel concentration in all the tissues. The lipid and protein content decreased in 40ppm in all the four tissues (0.001 to 0.05 level of significance). These significant alterations in the biochemical parameters of various tissues of Channapunctatus indicate deleterious effect of nickel exposure at subtoxic level also.

Abstract: The present investigation deals with the study of, fat, cholesterol and major fatty acid content in river and farm cultivated Labeo rohita (Rohu). Triplicate samples of Rohu were obtained from the river flowing at Doiwala region of Dehradun (U.K) and from the cultivated farm. Fatty acids were determined by conventional biochemical methods, TLC and GC-MS. Fat content of farm cultivated Rohu ranged from 2.5-5 times that of river water samples. Monounsaturated fatty acids predominated in cultivated farm Rohu in comparison to Rohu in river water. Differences in fatty acid profile between river water and farm cultivated Rohu were greatest among polyunsaturated fatty acids; linoleic acid was substantially higher in all cultivated samples than in river water fish. Omega-3 fatty acid levels were also found to be highest in cultivated farm water fish in comparison to river water fish. The study thus indicates that, as per basis of nutritional screening in terms of omega-3 fatty acids, cultivated farm water Rohu are more appropriate for diet.

Abstract: The concept of Islamic Banking and Economics isrecognizedessentially, it is now our responsibility to establish Kafalah as anindividual concept. An attempt has been taken in this article to define Al-Kafalah, to recognize its superiorstructures and values, and to prove the clearness of its entity. However, the fact is traditional authors used to deny the contributions of Islam towards Islamic contract. But in Islam, theadministrativeapplications were impending from the beginning of civilization the messengers of Allah (SWT) and it concluded in the last prophet Muhammad (SAW). Nowadays, the golden history of the Muslims is controlled day by day by secular and money-oriented managerial concepts due to lack of research and deviation from Islam. Unfortunately, many managerial concepts from conventional side persistinappropriate to the organizations of Muslim society. Accordingly, Islamic Organizations from family to the national level, cannot appeardynamic role in appraisal to conventional groups. Thus, it isrecommended in the present study to practice Kafalah based on Shariahprinciples and application of motivational practices according to Quran and Sunnah. Finally, the restraints and possible helpful measures of Kafalah have been pointed out.

Abstract: The linear regression has been studied particularly with respect to its identical relationship to the Fisher's Discriminant Analysis (FDA). In this paper, we prove that the coefficient vector of the least squares regression is identical to the vector of coefficients of the Fisher's Discriminant Analysis. We therefore refer to the classification procedure using the least squares regression as Regression Discriminant Analysis (RDA). We further carry out empirical investigations using both real world and simulated datasets, to show that a classification procedure based on both RDA and FDA are identical.

Abstract: Malaria parasite proteins like circumsporozoite protein (a surface protein), are expressed during liver stage of plasmodium parasite life cycle and are involved in host modulation and the virulence. These proteins could serve as good candidate for the drug development against malaria parasite. Malaria parasite traffic its virulence proteins into the hepatocyte cytosol for its development in hepatocyte. These parasite proteins modify the hepatocyte cytosol for maximum benefit of parasite. This process changes the permeability of the hepatocyte for uptake of various nutrients and factors required for parasite survival in hepatocyte. Trafficking of parasite proteins into hepatocytes depends on a conserved pentameric motif, known as PEXEL-motif. Marti et al. identified 22 sporozoite stage proteins in P. falciparum that had putative PEXEL motif. It has been identified that protein that contains PEXEL motif can be a potential drug candidate.

Abstract: In the mammalian host, invasion of the hepatocytes is the first step towards developing malaria disease. There are some signals which are exchanged between host and parasite. During early liver stage development, a sporozoite surface protein (CSP) is introduced in the hepatocytes cytoplasm. CSP then shuttles into and out of nucleus of hepatocytes and changes the host transcription profile. CSP export into the cytoplasm of infected hepatocyte requires the presence of a conserved pentameric motif-PEXEL (Plasmodium export elements) motifs. The CS protein out compete with the NFkb for nuclear import and down regulate the host genes regulated by NFkb which are involved in inflammation. These proteins could serve as good candidate for the drug development against malaria parasite. Marti et al. identified 22 sporozoite stage proteins in P. falciparum that had putative PEXEL motif. It has been identified that protein Pb122500 also contains that PEXEL motif and has a putative serine–thrionine kinase domain (so it is a drug candidate). The focus of current research is to study implications of Pb122500 gene as potential vaccine candidate by cloning and expressing the protein, characterizing the proteins, raise sera against them and try to localize these proteins in hepatocyte cells and find out further the host proteins interacting with these proteins so that we could find new antigen for vaccine against hepatic stages.

Abstract: This article focuses on the study of the enzymes produced by microorganisms, which have been extensively studied worldwide for their isolation, purification and characterization of their specific properties. Specific microorganisms have been isolated from extreme sources under extreme culture conditions, with the objective that such isolated microbes would possess the capability to bio-synthesize special enzymes. Various offline and online primary resources and literatures have been surveyed and reviewed for this study. Many Bio-industries require enzymes possessing special characteristics for their applications in processing of substrates and raw materials. These enzymes act as bio-catalysts to perform reactions in bio-processes in an economical and environmentally-friendly way as opposed to the use of chemical catalysts. The special characteristics of enzymes are exploited for their commercial interest and industrial applications, which include: tolerance to a varied range of pH, stability of enzyme activity over a range of temperature and pH, thermotolerance, thermophilic nature and other harsh reaction conditions. These microbial enzymes have proven their utility in bio-industries such as food, leather, textiles, animal feed, and in bio-conversions and bio-remediations.

Abstract: There are little facts about the role of reel self of a person when it comes to the role of social Medias and internet in the life of a person. Social media is providing yet one more means of engaging with people on this vast planet of ours, and if used effectively can give all of us greater choice in how we live and what happens in our world [1]. Most theories suggest that people get adversely affected and influenced by the internet and social Medias. Our experiment tested people's reaction to social media and the change appearing due to it in their choices and perceptions. The results showed that almost everyone gets a new definition of personality after entering into the world of internet and social media. The conclusion is that when it comes to people choices they are adapting all that is not at all relevant to their likings and disliking’s but is as per the environment they are living in to. This directly shows a development of new complex and diplomatic personality traits that are very difficult to understand and predict.

Abstract: Pot experiments were conducted during the planting season of 2015 at the green house of the Federal College of Forestry, Ibadan to evaluate the effect of leguminous plant leaf compost on the growth and yield of Celosia argentea L. There were six treatments including control (leaves of Chromolaena odorata, Cedrela odorata, Vigna unguiculata, Albizia lebbeck, and Mucuna poggei ) The experiment was laid out in a Complete Randomized Design (CRD) and replicated five times. Leaf composts were applied at the rate of 200g/2kg of top soil. Data were collected on plant height, number of leaves, stem girth and yield for twelve weeks. Data collected were subjected to analysis of variance (ANOVA) and significant means were separated using Duncan Multiple Range Test (DMRT). The results showed that C.argentea treated with Mucuna poggei leaf compost significantly (p<0.05) gave the highest plant height compared to other treatments and control. Similarly, Mucuna poggei leaf compost significantly (p<0.05) gave the highest leaves production and stem girth compared to other treatment and control. Highest yield was recorded on plant treated with Mucuna poggei compost (67.60g/plant). Therefore, use of Mucuna poggei leaf compost as soil amendment for the cultivation of leafy vegetable should be encouraged since it enhances plant growth, yield readily available and environmentally safe.

Abstract: Since the past three decades, India has advanced rapidly in terms of industrialization and productivity and economic stability. However, this has come at the cost of dramatically increased fuel consumption. Burning of fossil fuels, which is the mainstay of our power generation, has caused an ever increasing carbon footprint in the face of the earth. Also, with the increased buying power, the consumption of the average citizen factored in, this is contributing to rapid accured carbon debt. The increase in pollution cost India dearly in terms of money, productivity and mortality & morbidity. However, initiatives are being taken to mitigate these issues. In this article we report on the origin, effects and measures taken to mitigate the rising carbon footprint scenario in India.

Abstract: There is a growing interest in the field of Workplace Spirituality and Glass Ceiling. Till data, no research has explored the connection between the two topics. In this paper, the relation between Workplace Spirituality and Glass Ceiling Beliefs is described along with the mediating role of Glass Ceiling Beliefs in the relationship between Workplace Spirituality and Subjective Success which has emerged to be one of the most important organizational outcomes. First, a model of Workplace Spirituality and Glass Ceiling Beliefs is presented in which three dimensions of Workplace Spirituality (community, meaningful work and inner life) relate to the Glass Ceiling through four beliefs (acceptance, resignation, denial and resilience). Second, a mediation model of Glass Ceiling Beliefs in the relationship between Workplace Spirituality and Subjective Success (career satisfaction, work engagement, physical & psychological well-being) and job happiness) is presented. The paper concludes with a discussion of the theoretical and practical implications of the proposed models.
