Abstract: As the world runs fast, its our duty to run with the world compensating its speed. There is an urge to prove everyone unique. Hence time management play a worthless role in the daily work of a person. At morning it is a herculean task to wake up from the bed. “Let me sleep for some more time” is the first slogan of everyone every morning. But feeling guilty for not waking up in the morning is also encountered in several cases. In this paper we propose a novel “Murderer Algorithm” based automatic waking up system that helps to wake up every morning. The uniqueness of the system is to make the person in the bed to wakeup and get away from the bed. The device employs simple capacitive touch sensor to sense the presence of a person and also a brig

Abstract: This paper is mainly concerned with the application of countability theory in Finance. The author undertakes to explain countability theory for infinite countables not only in a precise manner but also gives analytical examples to simplify the theory even further. Some of the ways of ascertaining countability of infinite countables as indicated by the author entail: finding a bijection, finding a surjection, through a listing of elements and also through the determination of whether the elements are injective. The paper amalgamates Finance and countability by determining main areas in which the theory of countability is applicable in Finance. The paper explores: countability of Financial Statements constitutes, profit countability, countability of required rate of return, countability of company financing, countability in determination of capital investment decisions, countability in working capital constituents and countability in projection of financial statements’ data.

Abstract: Gray level Slicing is to highlight a specific range of gray values. Power Adaptation methods are presented for gray level slicing approaches. Power Adaptation methods aims in optimization of the resulting bit error rate by gray level slicing without preserving background and gray level slicing with background. This paper gives us an achievable increase in the proposed method rather than the conventional method with a better quality and the bit error rate is also optimized in proposed method rather than the former method with acceptable quality.

Abstract: Burkholderia cepacia is a gram negative bacilli usually isolated from persons with genetic lung diseases such as Cystic fibrosis. It was discovered as a plant pathogen but later researchers have found it to be a notorious pathogen in humans. It is also a nosocomial pathogen which contaminates equipment and even disinfectants. In the other end of the spectrum, research suggests that these organisms maybe used as bio diesel and also as pesticides and fertilizers. This review of literature gives an idea of the organism and the gateway it opens for further research with a special note on the evolution of this genus as a nosocomial infection in Neonates.

Abstract: Measurement of bulk resistance/resistivity of conducting polymers is very common and an important requirement. Conducting polymers are semiconductors and four probe measurements are needed to avoid errors due to contact resistance and spreading resistances. However, in a device it is convenient to make two probe measurements rather than four probe measurement. It has been shown here that the bulk resistance of a thick film can be measured in the presence of rectifying contacts, using two probe method by measuring the impedance of the film beyond a critical frequency. The metal-film contact has been modeled as a diode to explain the behavior.

Abstract: In this paper a hexagonal patch microstrip antenna with hexagonal slot behaves as a wide band monopole antenna having great return loss. It is designed for 1.1194-2.7078 GHz frequency band with wide bandwidth of 1.5884 GHz and return loss of -73.63dB. A hexagonal patch with etched ground plane monopole antenna with hexagonal Slot is fabricated on the glass epoxy (FR4 lossy) of dielectric substrate with relative permittivity (εr) of 4.3, thickness of 1.6mm, loss tangent of 0.02 with a ground plane, fed with a 50Ω rectangular microstrip feed line. This prototype antenna having an omnidirectional radiation pattern is measured for frequency range of 0-3 GHz. The novelty of this antenna is that hexagonal patch with hexagonal slot gives it uniqueness in design and also getting a bandwidth approx 1.6 GHz with -73dB Return loss is big achievement in 0-3 GHz frequency Band itself. As the antenna is designed only in 0-3GHz band, having all such properties in one antenna proves its novelty and uniqueness. The measured reflection coefficients are far below of -10dB.The simulated result and experimental results are analyzed and verified after comparison.

Abstract: The purpose of this study was to determine the concentrations of toxic metals (Cd, Hg, Cr, Pb, As) in meat at the Kumasi Central Abattoir, Ghana by using a Varian 220 Atom Absorption Spectrophotometer. The levels of toxic metals in meat (cow, pig, sheep, goat, grass cutter, deer) varied in concentration. The concentration of lead was above the tolerance level in all the meat samples with the highest concentration recorded in beef at 1.154 mg/kg and the lowest at 0.037 mg/kg in pork. The amount of mercury, Hg observed in the various meat samples fell within the range of 0.059 mg/kg to 0.012 mg/kg, a little over the tolerable level of 0.05 mg/kg. The highest mercury, Hg concentration was observed in grasscutter meat (0.071 mg/kg) and the lowest concentration in pork, which was observed at 0.012 mg/kg, with the former above the permissible limit and the latter below the permissible limit. The concentrations of As, Cd and Cr were all within the tolerance limit. The meat analyzed may have a potential health risk to consumers.

Abstract: This paper presents an efficient VLSI architecture for a 4x4 64-QAM multiple-input–multiple-output (MIMO) detector. The augmentation is done by on demand expansion of intermediate nodes of the tree rather than exhaustively, along with pipelined distributed sorters. The proposed architecture has a stable critical path independent of constellation size, scalable to higher number of antennas with efficient distributed sorters. Further, modification will be carried out with the faster multiplication unit to make it scalable to higher number of antennas.

Abstract: Rapid and extensive modifications of land use /land cover due to accelerated human activities have been a major cause of global environmental change in the past three centuries. During the past 20 years, humans changed these landscapes to meet the growing demand for food, fodder, timber, fiber and fuel more rapidly and extensively than in any comparable period of time. Changes in land use/ land cover have occurred to such an extent that it has significantly affected the functioning of biosphere, being one of the most important causes of biodiversity loss as well as climate change. This change is one of the primary causes of soil degradation and has a major impact on the provision of ecosystem services to people. Although this phenomenon is global in nature and is neither region specific nor country specific. But the nature and magnitude varies from one part of the globe to other, from developed to developing and under developed part of the world. It varies from plains to deserts and mountains. The present study is based on changing land use / land cover analysis with special reference to agroforestry in Pulwama District of Jammu & Kashmir, which is located in the central part of Kashmir Valley and is mostly dominated by agricultural occupation. The study is based mainly of secondary sources. A multi-temporal analysis was carried out in order to analyze the extent as well as direction of change. The study revealed that in Pulwama District, there was a major change in some of land use/ land cover categories. The change was mainly because of shifting to horticulture and agriculture plantation which are economically beneficial and also due to increasing pressure of population resulting in to a lot of residential and commercial developments. Therefore it becomes imperative to develop a sustainable land management strategy that does not cause the degradation of such valuable resources.

Abstract: Bank managements are interested in determining the rate of liquidity based on a strategy for meeting this need. Lack of sufficient liquidity might impose heavy costs and even lead to bankruptcy. On the other hand, surplus liquidity will result in losing investment opportunities and reduction in productivity and profit ability of banks. In this research, efforts are taken to use the most affecting factors by investigation on important factors effective on the liquidity rate. The data used are chosen from 573 real values of banking operations. The variables are NEII , RTGS and clear transaction and the outcome of these variables is bank liquidity. In this research, two methods of ARIMA and multiple regressions are applied for predicting the future liquidity data and two mathematical models are introduced. The model introduced can predict liquidity rate based on two years data effectively. The results showed that the mean deviations between output of model and actual results are about 9% and 2.46% in first and second year respectively. This means the people preferred to use the internet in second year more than first year.

Abstract: Resistance Spot Welding (RSW) is a process that is widely used in the automotive industries. The parameters that are used to develop a spot weld are the welding current, weld time and electrode force. Electrode force was not used as a control parameter due to the use of pneumatic system to actuate the welding electrode. The pneumatic system does not allow the development of closed loop control system; therefore electrode force was not used to control the growth of the spot weld nugget. This reported work looks into the ability to control electrode force dynamically during welding by using servomechanism. Force profiles were introduced in this work and the electrode force during welding was controlled to follow these force profiles. Based on the findings, the developed controller was able to control the electrode force during welding to follow the given force profiles. Decreasing the electrode force during welding facilitates the initiation of spot weld growth earlier in the weld cycle which in turn produces bigger weld diameter and stronger weld strength. The opposite was noticed when electrode force was increased during the weld cycle. Furthermore decreasing the electrode fore during welding produced a button pull-out failure and increasing the force produced an interfacial weld failure.

Abstract: Occupational stress is considered to be a main health problem for both individuals and organizations. This study has investigated the measurement of occupational stress among Management Information Systems (MIS) Users in different banks in the Kingdom of Bahrain. Furthermore, to identify their high job stressor factors and increase understanding of the impact of individuals differences in occupational stress. A descriptive, cross sectional survey was performed in five banks. Using quota sampling, MIS users’ from different divisions were asked to complete questionnaires- including demographic data, job stress and stressor factors. Six main stress factors were identified among MIS users banker staff: 1) intrinsic work characteristics (job design); 2) work culture and function; 3) managerial role; 4) career development; 5) relationships at work and 6) home-work interface. A total of 250 self-administrated questionnaires were distributed (hand delivery) to the banks divisions. The overall response rate was 80.8% (202/250) and the result suggested that over a third of MIS users in banks reported that their jobs were highly stressful. The bankers are exposed to high job stressors such as job design (overload, long working hours, deadlines and time pressure, repetitive task and lack of variety, and shortages of staff); and career development (under promotion and working at a level below their level of abilities and skills). However, the result of this research can be applied for improving sources of occupational stress and further, precluding severe stress and concern was expressed that such findings should be considered when delivering stress management programs.

Abstract: Cholistan is locally known as Rohi.This famous desert is 30 km from Bahawalpur. East of Bahawalpur is the Cholistan Desert which covers an area of about 15,000 km and extends into the Thar Desert of India. The region was once watered by the Hakra River, known as the Saravati in vedic times. At one time there were 400 forts in the area and archaeological finds around the Derawar Fort, the only place with a perennial waterhole, indicate that it was contemporaneous with the Indus Valley Civilization. The average annual rainfall is only 12 cm, and the area's scant cultivation is made possible by underground wells, drawn up by camels.

Abstract: The Indus Valley in Pakistan, straddling along the River Indus, from the fertile plains of Punjab to the lower course of Sindh along, was the first cradle of civilization in the subcontinent, emerging in 2000 years BC. The hand basin is divided from that of the Ganges by a desert known as Cholistan in Bahawalpur Division, and Thar in Sindh. It is a part of Great Indian Desert, called Marusthali or Region of Death. Cholistan's rich history dates back to the civilizations that flourished along the banks of the Hakra River. Cholistan has not always been a desert. It is separated from the central region of Bahawalpur Division by a sadness called Hakra, which at one time carried the waters of a large river, which flowed all around its length and breadth. Thus the area was fertile, well cultivated, and well-populated till the early twentieth century, when with the changes in the courses of the river Sutlej and Sindh took place and curved it into a sandy infertile land.

Abstract: Floods are related to several environmental processes. Therefore, its causes are as diverse as its consequences, both of which vary with the nature of the flood prone environment. In the low lying parts of flood plains, atmospheric extremes, especially excessive rainfall- are the primary causes of most of the flood episodes. The river Kaliaghai was originated from the highlands of the Jhargram P.S in the Paschim Medinipur district. The combined flows of the Kaliaghai and kangsabati which meet at Dheubhanga in P.S.-Moyna in the district of Purba Medinipur is known as the river Haldi. The river Kapaleswari and Baghai are two main tributaries of the Kaliaghai. The Kaliaghai- Kapaleswari- Baghai drainage basin covers an area of 2145 Km2. The lower parts of the basin comprising of 1576.25 Km2 of low lying terrain historically suffers from flood and tidal inundation. Therefore it is essential to controlled flood, but practically we can’t control due to climatic condition. Better water management is necessary in order to achieve maximize returns per unit of water and land. Some anthropogenic activity will be restricted for reduce flood vulnerability.

Abstract: Development is explain not as an empirical term (Reese and Overton1970) and on occasion as through it is (Kaplan 1983) . Many times as what ever happens across the life span is what constitutes development. The concept of development centers on value based notion of improvement. In life span perspective the development is life long, interactive, multidimensional, culturally historically embedded process, shows plasticity, involves both gain and losses and has multidisciplinary field of study.

Abstract: The aim of our study was to analysis a sample parents of tennis players in three different clubs situated in Tunisia and to incorporate the related inherent of the socio-economic factors of these issues and adopted the federal efforts to pout popularization of this sport. In our research we were incorporate for the achievement, the questionnaire as an investigative technique. The analysis focuses on a sample of 100 parents of players tennis clubs in three different situated in Greater Tunis. The questionnaire is, in fact, a set of ordered questions used to collect information’s from a population determined in tennis practice. The multiple choice question has a predetermined range of responses. Four variables were adopted; the socioeconomic level, age, level of studying, quality of population. The results indicate after comparing the responses of the experimental group: It should be noted that parents who take their children to practice courts have different social groups; are the managers, those who practice a profession and even retired parents. However, when we say that a group has other lower socioeconomic conditions, we do not give him a strict assertion scientific and strict sense of term. Our experimental show a certain extent, the idea that the practice courts in Tunisia is accessible to all social classes and socioeconomic conditions do not present an obstacle to the middle class to benefit from the virtues of this noble sport.

Abstract: Estimation of groundwater table by hydrogeologists in Ghana over the past decades has proven to be difficult due to the dearth of data on piezometric heads from the very few boreholes present to access this data. The importance of this information in infrastructure planning therefore calls for the need to establish a precise geophysical method that can predict the depth to the water table at a relatively lower cost and higher efficiency as compared with prevailing conventional methods. This paper demonstrates how the ground based ground penetrating radar (GPR) has been successfully used to delineate water table depths and possible ground water flow directions. The MALA GPR equipment with unshielded rough terrain antenna of 25 MHz central frequency in the common offset mode was employed for the data collection. Data was taken along 21 profiles with inter-profile separation of 50 m over the study site of areal extent 1 km2. Water table depths were estimated at an average depth of 21 m in an environment permeated by vertical structures which possibly served as pathways for groundwater infiltration. The general groundwater flow pattern was north-east in the northern and southern parts, and south-west at the central, eastern and western parts of the study area. The contact between the duricrust and the weathered saprolite was found at an average depth of 8 m. GPR-derived groundwater table depths were validated by drilled boreholes which intercepted the groundwater table at an average depth of 20 m within a lithology comprised of sandy clay and granite with varying degrees of weathering. This paper demonstrates the use of GPR as an efficient method for the estimation of groundwater table depth, groundwater flow direction as well as mapping of near surface lithological units; hence, it can serve as a baseline study for future applications.

Abstract: Cloud computing is the apt technology for the decade. It allows user to store large amount of data in cloud storage and use as and when required, from any part of the world, via any terminal equipment. While Cloud services offer flexibility, scalability and economies of scale, there have been commensurate concerns about security. On the similar terms, we have chosen to make use of a combination of authentication technique and key exchange algorithm blended with an encryption algorithm. In this project, we have proposed to make use of 3DES algorithm which is a well-known symmetric cryptosystem and is widely used for secure data transmission, along with that we will blend it with Random Key Generator and Graphical Password to add an extra security measure. This proposed architecture of three way mechanism and the use of symmetric method of encryption make it tough for hackers to crack the security system, thereby protecting data stored in cloud. This Cipher Block Chaining system is to be secure for clients and server. The security architecture of the system is designed by using DES cipher block chaining, which eliminates the fraud that occurs today with stolen data. There is no danger of any data sent within the system being intercepted, and replaced. The system with encryption is acceptably secure, but that the level of encryption has to be stepped up, as computing power increases. Results in order to be secure the system the communication between modules is encrypted using symmetric key

Abstract: This quantitative descriptive cross sectional study explored factors influencing sexual risk behaviours among youths in senior secondary schools in Ethiopia. Data were collected using structured questionnaires. Religious attachment, living with friends, living alone, parental control, level of parental education, peer pressure and number of friends who had experienced sex were some of the factors noted to influence youths to engage in sexual risk behaviours. The findings of this study have implications for both practice and policy development. They will enable healthcare workers to identify youths at risk of engaging in sexual risk behaviours and subsequently motivate them using health promotion strategies to engage in safe sexual practices. Adopting such an approach will prevent or at least minimise risk of youths being infected with sexually transmitted diseases, such as HIV/AIDS.

Abstract: Phototoxic and photoallergic reactions represent skin reactions to the sun, in the presence of photoactive chemicals applied on the skin or taken systemically. They have a highly polymorphic clinical presentation – photo contact urticaria, eczema on sun-exposed areas sometimes with erythema multiforme, exaggerated sunburn, linear phytophotodermatitis, pseudoporphyria, photoonycholysis, dyschromia, and lupus erythematosus. Also, skin cancers are increasingly associated with exposure to photoactive chemicals. There is a geographical and timely variation in the responsible agents, but they are mostly furocumarins from plants, UV filters in sunscreens and cosmetics, and drugs (NSAIDs, antimicrobials, phenothiazines, amiodarone, etc.) Three drugs like Chloramphenicol, Norflox, and Kucil(Fluorouracil) were tested for Phototoxic effect procured from local market and check the ph and absorption spectra and note and solubility of test drug was tried out through different solvents viz. DW (Distill water), petroleum ether, ethanol, DMSO. The Phototoxic activity was studied against the bacterial culture Escherichia coli (DH5 α).The Results of this study revealed that these drugs seem to be phototoxic effect on Microbial culture.

Abstract: This paper assesses the net welfare associated with the adoption of Bench Terraces (BT), Contour Bunds (CB), and Napier Grass Strips (NGS) in the Saba Saba sub-catchment of the Upper Tana catchment in Kenya. An agro-economic survey and informal interviews were conducted in the Saba Saba sub-catchment to elicit farm level quantitative data for the Cost Benefit Analysis (CBA). Financial functions in excel were used to analyze the on-site costs and benefits of adopting the identified SWC technologies on farms with crops such as maize, coffee, and tea. In this research CBA was used as a decision tool after the computation of all cost and benefits were valued in local currency to obtain the Net Present Value (NPV) or net welfare. The results show that investment in SWC measures may not be a feasible short-term option from farmers’ perspective. There is, therefore, a strong case for intervention, especially in the initial years where SWC adoption yields negative returns. Again the maintenance cost was higher for all SWC technologies. This could be attributed to poor construction techniques. Considering the sub-catchment’s erosion risk severity and slope stability, Bench Terrace was found to yield relatively higher on-site net welfare.

Abstract: Genetic improvement to produce seedless watermelon offers high quality fruits. This paper describes about problems related with tetraploid seed germination, various seed treatment to improve tetraploid seed germination and the morphological variations observed between the tetraploid and diploid seeds. Diploid watermelon seeds of three genetic backgrounds were treated with colchicine (0.2, 0.3 and 0.4%) and PEG (0.5%) as an adjuvent. Polyploid watermelon seeds have poor germination and low seedling vigor mainly due to thick seed coat and seed coat adherence to emerged cotyledons. In order to enhance the germination, the tetraploid seeds were subjected to five different seed treatments i.e; acid scarification, GA3 treatment, humidification, mechanical scarification and water soaking for 48hrs. Among the various treatments tested, maximum germination was recorded in the seeds subjected to water soaking for 48 hrs in all the three varieties. Tetraploids produce less number of seeds per fruit than those of diploids. Diploid seeds had complete filled cavity with embryo whereas tetraploids developed weak embryo with some empty cavity hence lower seed germination.

Abstract: Tukra is one of the major problem in mulberry growing areas and it is caused by pink mealy bug Maconellicoccus hirsutus which affect both the quality and yield of mulberry leaf. In general the tukra- diseased leaves showed high moisture content compared to normal healthy leaves. A preliminary attempt has been made to know the effect of plant extracts of natural pesticide origin on moisture content, loss and retention capacity of tukra affected mulberry leaves. The seed kernel and leaf extracts of Azadirachta indica, Pongamia pinnata, Madhuca longifolia and only leaf extracts of Lantana camara, Adathoda vasica were directly used as a foliar spray on M-5 mulberry variety under field conditions. The results revealed that the tukra affected leaves showed high moisture content (75.92%) compared to normal healthy leaves (71.32%). The moisture content was more in NSKE @ 4% (73.83%) PSKE @ 4% (73.80%), MSKE @ 4% (73.30%), and lowest was recorded from MSKE @ 2% (71.76%) followed by control (70.66%). The maximum moisture retention capacity in infested leaves of tukra was observed in NSKE @ 4% (80.60%) sprayed leaves and lowest was recorded from PLE @ 8% (78.46%) compare to control (77.80%). The minimum and maximum moisture loss of 26.06 and 28.20 % was observed in NSKE @ 4% and MSKE @ 2% respectively over the control (29.23%). There was no significant difference among the different treatments with respect to moisture content, loss and retention capacity of tukra affected mulberry leaves.

Abstract: Rice–wheat cropping system is very common in India. It contributes to over 70% of total food grain production in the country with an area of 12 M ha under this cropping system. However, it is estimated that under rice and wheat crops separately the area is 42.31 and 22.98 M ha respectively. Looking to the above facts a study at farmer’s field of Ambedkar Nagar district was under taken to evaluate the performance of zero-till seed cum ferti-drill along with other system of wheat seeding. The zero-tillage technique may be adopted successfully for seeding to grow wheat after rice by using zero-till ferti seed-drill (ZTFDS) developed at GBPUA&T, Pantnagar and now manufactured commercial. Although this method of wheat seeding using zero-till seed cum ferti drill is becoming very popular in Haryana and Punjab states but it is not popular in U. P. particularly in central Uttar Pradesh.

Abstract: Capsicum annum L. (Syn: Capsicum frutescens L., family: Solanaceae) is an herbaceous spice plant cultivated in tropical and subtropical conditions in different countries of the world. In India it is commonly known as “Lal Mirch”. The present study deals with response of UV-B radiation on different growth parameters of capsicum crop. Plants were grown in the field and exposed to supplemental UV-B radiation (280-320nm) for 1 hr and 3hr regularly supplied by the sunlamp, 300 watt from sowing till seedling stage. The total UV-B irradiation received by the plants from the lamp was 24.23 Jm-2s-1. The seed germination percentage was significantly decreased by 1 hr and 3 hr UV-B irradiation. The exposure of 1 hr UV-B irradiation showed promotory response on chlorophyll content and biomass of plumule and cotyledons while exposure of 3 hr of UV-B irradiation showed inhibitory effect on growth and chlorophyll content of seedlings. Current findings suggest ways to increase crop yield to cope the adverse effect of abiotic stress.

Abstract: Optimization the production of extracellular lipase in culture of Bacillus cereus has been investigated. From 10 samples of diesel fuel polluted soil it was found that 3 samples was positive for the presence of B. cereus. Lipase production by B. cereus isolated from diesel fuel polluted soil was investigated and optimized. The enzyme production was increased with increasing time and maximum enzyme activity was obtained after 72 hrs of incubation. Effect of pH and temperature indicated that, the lipase production was maximum at pH 8.0 (60.2 U/ml) and at 35°C (55.25 U/ml). The lipase production was optimized in shake flask experiments. With a selected carbon sources, maltose (65.5 U/mL) and nitrogen source, peptone (66.25 U/mL) was suitable substrates for accelerating lipase production. The present study indicates that the various factors influenced enzyme production by the bacteria, it appears that the nature of the supplements had significantly influenced on the production.

Abstract: In this paper, we will enlist the process of extracting template from heterogeneous Web Pages. Extracting structured information from semi-structured machine readable web pages automatically plays a major role these days, so some websites are using common templates with contents to populate the data for good productivity, Where WWW is the major resource for extracting the information. The problem here is for machines, the templates in the web pages are considered to be harmful since they degrade the performance of web applications due to irrelevant terms in the Template. As a result, the performance of the entire system degrades. Template Detection technique can be used to improve the performance of search engine as well as for classification of web documents. In this paper, we present algorithms to extract templates from a very large number of web pages that are getting generated from heterogeneous templates. Using the similarity of template structures in the document, we can cluster the web documents so that the template for each cluster will be extracted simultaneously.

Abstract: The study of man-environment relationship has great importance today. Human beings interact with their environment from the early stage of development to modern lives. In the process of this interaction they modify and transform environment. Environment plays determining role in the early stages of development where society essentially adapts itself to the limits laid down by it. As development proceeds onwards, the subservience to it gets progressively reduced and the process of cooperation and interaction begins. Present paper is based on analysis of secondary data published by different sources. Arc viewGIS 10 has been used to construct various kinds of maps in this paper. The natural environment of Zanskar presents a very harsh and fragile system. This region experiences heavy snowfall during winter caused by the western disturbances. Zanskar Tehsil is an underdeveloped area where existing use of natural resources is limited due to the low level of technology and harsh environment presented by rugged topography and very cold climate.

Abstract: Even a small transition delays and little faults create major concern in digital circuits. It Produce greater impact on not only for simple memory but also for most of the memory applications. This paper presents an error-detection method for difference-set cyclic codes with majority logic decoding. Majority logic decodable codes are suitable for memory applications due to their capability to correct a large number of errors. However, they require a large decoding time that impacts memory performance. The proposed fault-detection method significantly reduces memory access time when there is no error in the data read. The technique uses the majority logic decoder itself to detect failures, which makes the area overhead minimal and keeps the extra power consumption low. The proposed method detects the occurrences of single error, double error ,triple error in the received code words obtained from the memory system.

Abstract: This paper presents an enhanced 32-bit carry look-ahead(CLA) adder implementing using the constant delay (CD) logic, targeting at full-custom high-speed applications. The CD characteristic of this logic style regardless of the logic type makes it suitable in implementing complicated logic expressions such as addition. CD logic exhibits a unique characteristic where the output is pre-evaluated before the inputs from the preceding stage is ready. This feature offers performance advantage over static and dynamic domino logic styles in a single-cycle multistage circuit block. Several design considerations including timing window width adjustment and clock distribution are discussed. Using 65-nm general-purpose CMOS technology, the proposed logic demonstrates an average speed up of 94% and 56% over static and dynamic domino logic, respectively, in five different logic gates. Simulation results of 8-bit ripple carry adders show that CD logic is 39% and 23% faster than the static and dynamic-based adders, respectively. CD logic also demonstrates 39% speedup and 64%(22%) energy-delay product (EDP) reduction from static logic at 100% (10%) data activity in 32-bit carry look ahead adders. For 8-bit Wallace tree multiplier, CD logic achieves a similar speedup with at least 50% EDP reduction across all data activities.

Abstract: Cattle suffering with plastic foreign body syndrome were treated surgically by rumenotomy. The pre-operative and 12th day post operative blood and serum biochemical were recorded and compared with normal healthy cattle. Pre-operatively decrease in haemoglobin, packed cell volume and total erythrocyte count was observed which was gradually increased and came to near normal state on 12th post-operative day. There was leucocytosis, neutrophilia and corresponding lymphopenia observed in animals during pre-operative phase. The glucose, serum creatinine, serum albumin and calcium levels were found to be at lower level and total proteins, blood urea nitrogen and phosphorus at higher level in pre-operative period when compared to normal cattle. This may be due to low intake of food and water and also inflammatory condition in body due to presence of plastic foreign body.

Abstract: Data mining is the process of extracting interesting, useful and previously unknown information or patterns from large information repositories such as: relational database, data warehouses, XML repository, etc. There are various types of data mining techniques such as association rules, classifications and clustering. Association rule mining is one of the most important and well researched techniques of data mining. Among sets of items in the transaction databases or other data repositories, it seeks interesting correlations, frequent patterns, associations or casual structures. Association Rule Mining is a very potential technique which has the aim to find interesting and useful patterns from the transactional database. It is mainly used in market basket analysis that help to identify patterns of all those items that are purchased together. To denote association with itemsets and their quantities, the Quantitative association mining is used. In this, we partition each item into equi-spaced bins with each bin representing a quantity range. It assumes each bin as a separate bin as we proceed with mining and we also take care to reduce redundancies and rules between different bins of the same item. Here, we make use of Association Rule Mining Technique to create a platform which helps in grouping similar objects together in a transaction process.

Abstract: Rail inspection is an important task in railway maintenance. The speed and loads of trains have been increasing greatly in recent years, and these factors inevitably raise the risk of producing rail defects. Mainly the discrete surface defects impact the riding quality and safety of a railway system. However, it is a challenge to inspect such defects in a vision system because of illumination inequality and the variation of reflection property of rail surfaces. This project presents a real-time VIS for discrete surface defects of rail heads. VIS comprises the Image Acquisition Subsystem (IAS) and the image analysis subsystem. IAS acquires gray rail images for the surface of a rail head, and the latter processes rail images and detects possible defects. This paper propose the Local Normalization(LN) method to enhance the distinction between defects and background in a rail image, considering illumination inequality and the variation of reflection property of rail surfaces. VIS first acquires a rail image by the image acquisition system, and then, it cuts the sub image of rail. Track by the track extraction algorithm. Then, VIS enhances the contrast of the rail image .At last, VIS detects defects using the defect localization based on projection profile (DLBP), which identifies possible defects using the projection profile of the mean intensity over each longitudinal (or transversal) line. This is robust to noise and very fast. The proposed LN method and DLBP algorithm are better than the related well-established approaches. The distance of the crack can also be found based on certain assumption.

Abstract: The researchers sought to determine the effect of mine tailings on the growth ornamental plants. The study aimed to evaluate the effects of mine tailings o n the numbers of seed germinated, number of leaves, length of seedlings and length of primary roots; assess the effects of the various percentages of mine tailings; determine the interaction effect of the various percentages of mine tailings with fertile soil and organic fertilizers; and establish the best kind of percentages of mine tailings on the germination of seeds and growth of seedlings. Experiments were performed to determine the germination and growth of petunia seeds. Selections of plant candidate from varieties of seeds were considered. The ideal candidate is petunia seeds since it can sprout at a minimum period of seven days. Generally, there is significant effect of mine tailing concentration in primary root growth . Findings show that primary roots in 25%, 50% and 75% mine tailings media are significantly shorter than the pure soil media. The data revealed that addition of fertilizer to the media increased plant growth in the three ( 3) media. There is significant increased in root lengths when fertilizer is added. It is also noted that there is significant decrease in root length as the amount of mine tailing is increased. The findings proved that the further development of plant organs are affected or are influenced by soil mineral concentrations. In this case , the mine tailings at any rate affect the leaves formation.

Abstract: Well-organized big data get together in the densely distributed sensor networks is, therefore, a challenging research area. One of the most effective solutions to address this challenge is to utilize the sink node’s mobility to facilitate the data gathering. While this technique can reduce energy consumption of the sensor nodes, the use of mobile sink presents additional Challenges such as determining the sink node’s trajectory and cluster formation prior to data collection. In this paper, we propose a new mobile sink routing and data gathering method through network clustering based on modified Expectation-Maximization (EM) technique. In addition, we derive an optimal number of clusters to minimize the energy consumption. The effectiveness of our proposal is verified through numerical results.

Abstract: The Students’ Variables as Predictor of Secondary School Students’ Performance in Physics in Ekiti West Local Government Area of Ekiti State, Nigeria was investigated in this study. The study adopted a survey research design of the ex-post facto type. The sample comprised 120 senior secondary school II Physics students drawn from the six secondary schools in Ekiti West Local Government Area of Ekiti state. The instruments used for the study was questionnaire and past academic performance in Physics of the students involved in the study. Two research hypotheses were generated and analysed in the study using Pearson’s Moment Correlation and Multiple regression statistical analysis. Among others, the study revealed that: students‘ variables (study habit, attitude to and interest of students in Physics) are better predictors of students’ performance in Physics, while student gender has no influence on students academic performance (is a poor predictor). The results also revealed the individual contribution of students’ variables to students performance in term of beta weight 0.222 (22.2%), 0.196 (19.6%), 0.142 (0.14.2%) and 0.020 (2%) for students attitude to Physics, study habit, students interest and gender of the students respectively. Conclusion and recommendations were also made in this paper.

Abstract: Most agronomic soils contain large reserves of total phosphorus [P], but the fixation and precipitation of P cause P deficiency, and in turn, restrict the growth of crops severely. Phosphorus replenishment, especially in sustainable production systems, remains a major challenge as it is mainly fertilizer-dependent. Though the use of chemical P fertilizers is obviously the best means to circumvent P deficiency in different agro-ecosystems, their use is always limited due to its spiralling cost. A greater interest has, therefore, been generated to find an alternative yet inexpensive technology that could provide sufficient P to plants while reducing the dependence on expensive chemical P fertilizers. Among the heterogeneous and naturally abundant microbes inhabiting the rhizosphere, the phosphate solubilizing microorganisms (PSM) including bacteria have provided an alternative biotechnological solution in sustainable agriculture to meet the P demands of plants. These organisms in addition to providing P to plants also facilitate plant growth by other mechanisms. Despite their different ecological niches and multiple functional properties, P-solubilizing bacteria have yet to fulfill their promise as commercial bio-inoculants. Current developments in our understanding of the functional diversity, rhizosphere colonizing ability, mode of actions and judicious application are likely to facilitate their use as reliable components in the management of sustainable agricultural systems.

Abstract: A pot experiment was conducted in glass house conditions for 120 days to study the effects of phosphorus solubilizing Gram-positive bacteria on plant growth, nutrient uptake and yield of cowpea (Vigna unguculata). Among all twelve bacterial treatments, the strain Bacillus spp (B3) has shown the greatest shoot length 67.70 cm, root length 60.5 cm and total dry weight 4.57 g plant-1 after 45 days of sowing. Similarly, in the same treatment the shoot length, root length and total dry weight were found 162.36 cm, 60.5 cm and 128.49 g plant-1, respectively at harvesting and total yield was obtained 23.34 g plant-1, which was significantly greater than all other treatments and uninoculated control treatments containing single super phosphate (SSP) and rock phosphate (RP) as phosphorus sources (7.93 g plant-1 and 3.81 g plant-1 respectively). The strains Bacillus thurengensis (T1 and T6) also have indicated a significant increase in above parameters i.e root length, shoot length, total dry weight and yield. In Bacillus thurengensis (T1 and T6) the total yield was observed 19.50 g plant-1 and 18.03 g plant-1 respectively. Besides these above strains a significant increase in growth and yield of cowpea plants was observed in all the Gram–positive phosphorus solubilizing bacteria inoculation compared to uninoculated control.
