Abstract: High frequency variable oscillator is central to the construction of high speed clock for data communication. A very wide variable frequency oscillation is designed that could be used in data communication for reliable and fast data transmission. A voltage controlled oscillator in Colpitt configuration is used in the design. The design is found to be capable of producing frequencies from 800MHz to 1.5GHz for a reverse biased voltage (VR) of 0 to 25V while maintaining a good tuning flatness throughout the range. The design is found to be free from noise and frequency variations over the tuning range.

Abstract: Culture may have a big influence on the performance of all organizations worldwide. This is a practice that cannot just be assumed as it has both positive and negative effects as far as performance is concerned. It is more serious when it comes to non-Governmental organizations, since in most cases they involve international Governments. The main focus of the study was the non-governmental organizations in Kenya with a specific focus on World Vision Kenya. The specific objectives of the study were to establish the link between competitive culture and performance in Non-Governmental Organizations, to explore the effect of entrepreneurial culture on performance in Non-Governmental Organizations, to assess the level of bureaucratic culture and its influence on overall performance in Non-Governmental Organizations, to examine the influence of consensual culture on performance in Non-Governmental Organizations, and finally to identify the preferred cultural integrations in Non-Governmental Organizations in Kenya.

Abstract: This research investigated the effectiveness of value analysis approach on elementary school students’ value development. Seventy 5th grade students from a public elementary school in the central district of Hatay province (Turkey) participated in a 14- week study. A pre-test, post-test, control group experimental design was implemented to conduct the study. While “value analysis approach” was applied on the experimental group, traditional activities were continued by the teachers in the control group classrooms to enable students gain pre-determined values in the Social Studies curriculum. The Value Assesment Scale developed by the researchers was used to collect data. Cronbach’s alpha co-efficient of the scale was calculated as 0,83. Results revealed that the experimental group had statistically higher scores on the acquisition levels of ‘Cooperation’, ‘Academic Honesty’ and ‘Fairness’ values over the control group. However, no differences found on the acquisition levels of the “Respect for National Anthem and Flag’.

Abstract: Human immunodeficiency (HIV) and hepatitis B virus (HBV) are both of great concern in Nigeria. This study was conducted to understand the HIV and HBV prevalence among students and staff at the University of Jos (Jos, Nigeria) through a medical outreach program in which free screening was offered to voluntary participants at the university. Serum samples from 180 individuals were assayed for the presence of HBV surface antigen, HIV-1 p24 antigen, and HIV-1/2 antibodies. HIV prevalence was 3.88% and HBV prevalence was 7.22%. In sum, the prevalence of HBV and HIV among young Nigerian adults reflects the need for establishment of clear health policy for this risk group.

Abstract: Classification analysis of microarray gene expression data has been performed widely to find out the biological features and to differentiate intimately related cell types that usually appear in the diagnosis of cancer. Many algorithms and techniques have been developed for the microarray gene classification process. These developed techniques accomplish microarray gene classification process with the aid of three basic phases namely, dimensionality reduction, feature selection and gene classification. In our previous work, microarray gene classification by statistical analysis approach with Fuzzy Inference System (FIS) was proposed for precise classification of genes to their corresponding gene types.

Abstract: A vast majority of web services exist without explicit associated semantic descriptions. As a result many services that are relevant to a specific user service request may not be considered during service discovery. In this paper, we address the issue of web service discovery given no explicit service description semantics that match a specific service request. Our approach to semantic based web service discovery involves semantic-based service categorization and semantic enhancement of the service request. We propose a solution for achieving functional level service categorization based on an ontology framework. Additionally, we utilize clustering for accurately classifying the web services based on service functionality.

Abstract: In this research work, frequency response of the gear box in the medium duty lathe machine is studied using transfer functions. The effect of the torque acting at a particular rotor on the amplitude of vibration of the other rotors is studied. Initially, equation of motion is developed for the multi-rotor system in the gearbox and later, Laplace transforms are applied to find the transfer functions. Torque acting at various rotors is also calculated. The obtained characteristic equation and the transfer functions are solved for poles and zeros (frequencies to attenuate the inputs at every rotor) by writing programming in MATLAB. Plots of the frequency response curves are plotted by writing the programming in MATLAB and the final conclusions are drawn.

Abstract: Absorption and emission properties of Dy3+ doped phosphate glass with the chemical composition of 55.5 P2O5 + 14.5 SrO + 14 K2O + 9 Al2O3 + 6 KF +1.0 Dy2O3 have been investigated. The density and refractive index of the prepared glass were determined by Archimedes principle and using an Abbe refractometer, respectively. Optical absorption spectra were recorded on a Hitachi U-3400 spectrometer in the wavelength of 250-2500 nm. The intensity parameters (Ω2, Ω4 and Ω6 ) are determined from the Judd-Ofelt analysis have been used to calculate radiative transition probabilities (AR), life times (τR) and branching ratios (βR) from the exited 4F9/2 level to the lower levels of Dy3+ ion.


Abstract: In order to increase transmission efficiency of the real world video sequences, Motion estimation (2) plays an vital role. An improved version of the reconfigurable block motion estimation algorithm (3) is proposed in this paper. The new algorithm uses a small cross-shaped search patterns to speed up the motion estimation of stationary and quasi- stationary blocks. Also we propose a pipelining method for SAD unit to minimize clock delays with minimum area overhead. Our approach increases speed and enhance the throughput for Codec design. We propose a new method “Block Motions matching technique (BMM)” (2) where compression takes place at both Spatial and Temporal domain. In BMM, images are sub divided into micro blocks of 16x16 matrices and it is checked with nearby blocks. Also this method is applied for video compression techniques. The advantage of BMM over existing system is that it compresses block level compression instead of pixel level compression that improves execution speed and adapt for fast processing.

Abstract: Tin slag a waste product of tin smelting contains many important metals such as niobium, tantalum, manganese, iron, aluminum, titanium, etc. Niobium metal which is one of the important metals found in tin slag has successfully been extracted using leaching and electrothermal method. The tin slag was crushed and ground to very fine particle sizes of nanometer level using laboratory ball mill, piston and mortar. The particles were sieved and 150nm and 180nm particle sizes range were used for this experiment. The samples were subjected to two leaching processes using hydrochloric acid and sodium hydroxide. The residues from the leaching processes were subjected to carbonchlorination at 300oC to produce Niobium oxide. The purity of Niobium metal extracted was calculated to up to 95% which means that tin slag from Nigerian Tin Smelting Company is a good source of high quality Niobium metal.

Abstract: Evaluation of frequency reconfigurable patch antennas for multi-standard personal communication systems, using PIN diodes as switches. Two different configurations are studied with dual-band behavior: a patch antenna with two switchable slots; and a rectangular patch with a switchable parasitic element. One of the objectives is to evaluate the reliability of the simulation software to design and predict the performance of reconfigurable antennas with embedded active elements. These antennas were fabricated and the measured results show good agreement withthe simulations. Each of the designed antennas enable electronic switching of the operating frequency, while maintaining good input impedance match and stable radiation characteristics.

Density and group diversity varied considerably among the sites, the statistically significant difference in mean abundance both for total microarthropods and acarines however existed only between forest site and brick field, difference of group diversity was not significant. All the sites showed post-monsoon population maxima. Oribatids were the single largest order at the sites followed by collembolans.


Abstract: In this paper, a single server bulk service queuing system with interrupted vacation, request for Re-service and Balking is considered. At a service completion, if the server finds at least ‘a’ customers waiting for service say 𝜉, he serves a batch of min (𝜉 ,b ) customers, whereb ≥ a. At the completion of an essential service, the leaving batch of customers may request for a re-service with probability π. However, the re-service is rendered only when the number of customers waiting in the queue is less than ‘a’.

Abstract: It is debatable that the Nigerian Land Use Act of 1978 has not absolutely transferred ownership of land to the Governor of states in Nigeria. It is argued that the citizens have no rights or interest over the land beyond their occupation because such rights or interest has been taken over by the virtue of section 1 of the Land Use Act, which provides that subject to the provisions of the Act, lands in each State of the Federation is vested in the Governor of that State and such land shall be held in trust and administered for the use and common benefits of all Nigerians.

Abstract: Entrepreneurial policies are generally enacted by governments to promote entrepreneurship and help sustain Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs). However, in Nigeria, despite laudable policies, the implementation of those policies relating to entrepreneurship as well as technology incubation programme leaves a lot to be desired. Thus, the Nigerian version of business incubation is yet to attain success stories in comparison with some other developing nations. Consequently, the entrepreneurship development is also in the path of decline.

Abstract: I. INTRODUCTION D eveloped countries will always trace their roots of success in all sectors to the quality of their teaching profession. The long chain of all other professions like medicine, law and engineering originates from the teaching profession. Reverse is the case in Nigeria. Teaching has been seen as a mere activity, occupation and vocation for the academic losers. Some people even refer to teachers as substitutes on the bench of life, who are left with no option than to proceed and get employed into the teaching profession.

Abstract: Modal analysis has been important to the designers and operators since the inception of the Turbo machinery. Blades typically fail because of low-cycle fatigue (LCF), and high-cycle fatigue (HCF), environmental attack, Creep, Oxidation, erosion, embrittlement. In the present work the turbine blade is modeled and analyzed using finite element method the eigen value extraction for flexural and torsional modes is obtained. Foreign object damage is simulated by considering a circular crack along the leading edge of the blade. It was found that the stretching induced by the centrifugal inertia force due to the rotational motion of the blades was the cause for the increment of the bending stiffness of the structure. This resulted in maximum operational Vonmises stresses; the object is to provide understanding and information for designers to improve the life and efficiency of gas turbines.

Abstract: Entrepreneurial intentions are considered as more accurate predictors of entrepreneurial behavior. Understanding entrepreneurial intentions will enable the researchers to investigate the dynamics of entrepreneurial venture creation process. However, the controversial findings on the determinants of entrepreneurial intentions and the focus on the isolated variables without a theoretical rationale triggered this study to question what antecedents would predict the entrepreneurial intention of undergraduates. Thus, this study was conducted with the aim of identifying the antecedents of entrepreneurial intention of undergraduates. Accordingly, a sample of 209 undergraduates from Uva Wellassa University of Sri Lanka was studied by using a structured questionnaire on entrepreneurial intention, perceived desirability, perceived social norms and perceived feasibility.

Abstract: Here we are talking about spatial inequality, but before starting to write about it, we need to understand what we mean when we talk about spatial inequality. According to Wikipedia “Spatial inequality is defined as the distribution of qualities/resources and services like welfare in bias or unequal amounts. It occurs as a result of greed, religion, race or culture. Spatial inequality is countered by equal distribution of resources and services”. It has been observed that people are living in same socioeconomic conditions in the same cluster.

Abstract: The need for treaties has increased as the world’s interdependence has intensified. Continuing, technological innovation, economic globalization and the growth of transnationalism has resulted in an enormous increase in the frequency and rapidity of global interaction. Such challenges require both national and international responses. Where a problem cannot be adequately addressed by a country acting alone acting cooperatively at the international level becomes essential for a country to protect its own interests.

Abstract: In this paper, fuzzy modeling of distance between Intuitionistic fuzzy sets (four inputs–one output and two inputs–one output) were developed to test the hypothesis that high job demands and low job control (job strain) are associated with elevated free cortisol levels early in the working day and with reduced variability across the day and to evaluate the contribution of anger expression to this pattern. The models were derived from multiple data sources including One hundred five school teachers (41 men and 64 women) classified 12 months earlier as high (N = 48) or low (N = 57) in job strain according to the demand/control model sampled saliva at 2-hour intervals from 8:00 to 8:30 hours to 22:00 to 22:30 hours on a working day. Comparison of the models show that the four input model exhibited less entropy than the two input model using distance between Intuitionistic fuzzy sets.

Abstract: The word 'Recession' denotes a temporary period of economic decline during which trade and Individual activities are reduced. Till date, the world has witnessed a number of economic recessions that brought the trade market to a standstill and left the economists and analysts with valuable lessons to be learnt for future. Globalization and liberalization have contributed a lot in making the entire world a close knit economic unit. In an interconnected global economy recession and economic turbulence in one part of the world has the potential to disrupt the economies of other countries in a major way. The economic slowdown in US economy in 2008 caused by the burst of housing bubble engulfed the entire world in its grip. This research paper attempts objectives, US crisis in 2008 and its impact on Indian economy, facts of global recession in 2013, RBI’s initiative, India and Global recession in 2013, benefits of recession and some conclusions.

Abstract: In recent years, investor – state arbitration system (ISA) has received a lot of attention and criticism in academic writings. A section of stakeholders have labelled this system as machinery for advancing foreign investors interests at the expense of the host state interests. It is contended that the system is overshadowed with flaws and lacks the necessary values of a legitimate adjudicative system. The often cited flaws in the system includes: lack of mechanism to avoid inconsistent decisions, lack of rules to ensure impartial and independent adjudication process, confidentiality of proceedings despite the fact that the disputes are public in nature and expensive adjudication process. Furthermore the system is condemned for encroaching on governments’ regulatory powers.

Abstract: Simple and environment friendly Pd-containing poly (vinyl alcohol) PVA catalysts were prepared by casting from their aqueous solutions. A series of PVA containing different ratios of Pd was characterized by IR, electronic spectroscopy, thermal analysis, XRD, Field-emission scanning electron microscopy (FE-SEM) and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). The binding of Pd to the polymer matrix and its effect on the polymer structure was studied by means of XRD, XPS and thermal analysis. The catalytic activity of the Pd-based catalysts towards the oxidation of polyphenol trihydroxy benzene was investigated and showed a significant catalytic activity in case of the polymer sample containing the lowest Pd concentration (A1).

Abstract: A supercapacitor stores energy electrostatically by polarizing an electrolytic solution. Though it is an electrochemical device there are no chemical reactions involved in its energy storage mechanism. This mechanism is highly reversible, allowing the supercapacitor to be charged and discharged hundreds of thousands to even millions of times. Recent advances in this field have been in developing solid state supercapacitors. In this paper, a low temperature synthesis of PZT by sol-gel route is achieved which is made into a homogeneous solution using Diethylene Glycol.

Abstract: The use of performance contracts has been acclaimed as an effective and promising means of improving the performance of public enterprises as well as government departments. The debate in the public sector has been more complex than just increasing the effectiveness of strategic management systems and narrowing the gap between ambitious strategies and annual planning. The Kenyan government acknowledges that over the years there has been poor performance in the public sector, especially in the management of public resources which has hindered the realization of sustainable economic growth. To improve performance, the government has continued to undertake a number of reform measures. The seminar explained the role of county government, the performance contracting, challenges being faced by counties in implementation of performance contract and suggested solution towards effective implementation of performance contract in the counties.

Abstract: Wireless sensor networks consist of sensor nodes with radio, processor, memory, battery and sensor hardware. With widespread deployment of these devices one can precisely monitor the environment. Sensor nodes are resource constrained in terms of radio range, processor speed, memory and power. WSNs are mostly unguarded and the wireless medium is broadcast. This makes them more vulnerable to attacks. Without proper security measures, an enemy can launch various kinds of attacks in hostile environments. These attacks can disrupt the normal working of WSNs and can defeat the purpose of their deployment. Therefore security is an important aspect of these networks. WSNs are often deployed to monitor important emergency events, such as forest fire and battlefield monitoring.

Abstract: Mainly, due to new scientific inquiries and technological advancements knowledge becomes obsolete. So it creates a dilemma where the applicability of so called theories and models which we learnt in class can still be applied to solve problems? Thus, the scholars bring the notion of RESEARCH as a definite solution which enriches the existing understanding of a phenomenon. So, what is research? Research can be simply defined as an attempt to create new knowledge. Having known what research is, this essay suggests a step up process to commence a research career. Suggested process consists of six steps concisely, and process development was exposed to subjective angles of the author.

Abstract: The cost of concrete is governed by the cost of material, plant and labour. The cost of cement is several times higher than the aggregate. Therefore, the objective is to produce the concrete mix as lean as possible and should be economical. That is why designed mixes are preferred to nominal mix. Generally in nominal mixes, cement in higher quantity is used than the designed mixes. Since in production of concrete, the cost of cement is governing factor, therefore, to minimize the cost of concrete, it is essential that concrete mixes must be designed.

Abstract: West Africa region has seized to be the traditional warehouse and transit routes for illicit drugs from the Andeans stable to America and European drug markets. The influence of the culture of hard drugs has taken a more than a foothold in the region as production, manufacture/processing has passed the experimental stage and consumption is highly potent. The fear is that, the region may turn into theatre of conflict, crimes, violence and lawlessness which is even more favourable condition for the trade. Most scholars and extant literatures has focused on poor economies weak rule of law and corruption as the endogenous causative factors that has made the region vulnerability and flourishing of illicit drug trade, but importantly, deliberately overlooked the exogenous underpinnings such as high demand for drugs, and the vicious, desperate and determined traffickers to feed on this demand.

Abstract: Pregnancy is a special phase in every woman’s life and demands special care because even a small mishap can turn this happy journey in to a scary nightmare. That’s why treating any ailment including malignancy merits special consideration as it can have a long lasting impact on two lives. Hodgkins lymphoma is one of the common malignancy encountered during pregnancy and chemotherapy plays a central role in its management. Chemotherapeutic drugs with their toxic effects can have a profound effect on the outcome of pregnancy. Keeping this view in mind we report our experience of treating such patient in a tertiary care hospital and try to highlight the challenges involved. Lymphoma is a rare diagnosis in pregnancy. Chemotherapy and radiotherapy during the first trimester is associated with fetal malformation risk which diminishes as pregnancy advances. In view of relative rarity of such cases there is a critical need for multicentre cooperation and a central registry to collect data on such cases and their follow up so that treating physicians could assess more accurately the safety of different chemotherapeutic agents in pregnancy.

Abstract: There are two types of energy i.e. high grade energy and low grade energy. Majority of the processes require high grade energy which is depleting day by day. Hence, it has become a matter of great concern to use the non conventional source of energy or to recover the waste heat liberated from the processes. This paper studies theoretical approach to recover the waste heat liberated from vapour compression cycle, which is used to run vapour absorption cycle. The required heat has been given by solar energy. The work evaluated the performance of combined cooling cycle.

Abstract: Antibacterial activities of aqueous and ethanolic extracts of Allium cepa (onion bulb) were investigated against Escherichia coli, Salmonella spp., Streptococcus pneumoniae, Shigella spp., and Staphylococcus aureus with the minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) of 0.2 g/ml by agar dilution technique. The antibacterial potency of the extract as evaluated by broth dilution technique, showed diameter of inhibition zone of 17.08 mm, 0.00 mm, 19.00, 19.00 and 15.0 mm for E. coli, Salmonella spp., S. pneumoniae, Shigella spp., and Staph. aureus respectively at a concentration of 0.2 mg/ml for aqueous extract and diameter of inhibition zone of 23.0 mm, 20.00 mm, 20.00 mm, 21.00 mm and 21.00 mm for E. coli, Salmonella spp., S. pneumoniae, Shigella spp., and Staph. aureus respectively at a concentration of 0.2 mg/ml for ethanolic extract. The result obtained using the ethanol and hot water extract of the plant showed that the local use of medical plant are based on the efficacy of their active principle which can be discovered scientifically; orthodox medical practices can therefore be complemented with traditional practices.

Abstract: The experiment was conducted at the Laboratory of Agronomy Department, Sher-e-Bangla Agricultural University, Dhaka, Bangladesh during March to August 2013 to study the influence of variety and date of harvesting on changes of sugar and starch levels of potato derived from TPS at ambient storage condition. Potato variety and time of harvest had significant effect on nutritional aspects. Reducing sugar, total sugar increased with advancing storage period, whereas specific gravity, non-reducing sugar and starch content decreased with increasing storage period. Among the varieties HPS 364/67 was the best in respect of nutritional aspects. At harvest and 100 days after storage, the highest total sugar (0.61% and 0.82%) was observed from Lady Rosetta and harvest at 110 days after planting, while the lowest total sugar from HPS-364/67 and harvest at 80 days after planting. The results revealed that HPS 364/67 showed superior nutritional quality than other varieties when harvested at 100 days after planting.
