Abstract: The teachers of German should have their work close at heart, day and night, and should be as busy as bees, because, contrarily, they will start mincing words and their students will pretend innocence. Idiomatic expressions are a very important segment in each and every language. They unable the users of a particular language to read between lines and they also highlight the profound cultural features of that language. This paper makes an attempt to put to the foreground that specific small segment of linguistics, culture and national feature of a foreign language, or more precisely, it tackles the case of the Macedonian learners of the German language.

Abstract: Organic fertilizer is a good source of nutrients for the soil. It improves the soil’s physical, chemical and biological characteristics. This study was conducted to evaluate the growth and yield performance of pechay applied with different levels of compost as organic fertilizer and determines the effect of organic fertilizer in terms of plant height, number of leaves per plant, fresh weight per plant and leaf area. The pot experiment was laid out in randomized complete block design (RCBD) with five treatments and replicated three times. Significant differences between treatments means were determined using the Duncan Multiple Range Test (DMRT). The analysis of variance (ANOVA) showed, that there were no significant differences in the plant height and number of leaves. However, leaf area of pechay was significantly affected by application of T3 = 50% pure garden soil: 50% pure compost (OF) in combination and in terms of yield, the fresh weight of pechay was significantly increased with the application of T4 = 75% pure garden soil: 25% pure compost (OF). Application of 50% pure garden soil: 50% pure compost (OF) and 75% pure garden soil: 25% pure compost (OF) significantly affected the leaf area and fresh weight of pechay. This implies that compost application greatly increased or influenced the growth and development of the pechay plant.

Abstract: Chronic tension-type headache (CTTH) differs from the episodic form not only in frequency but also with respect to pathophysiology, lack of effect to most treatment strategies, frequent medication overuse, more disability, and higher socioeconomic costs. The purpose of this study is to see the effect of amitriptyline on TNF-α, IL-1, and IL-6 serum levels in CTTH patients and its correlation with pain severity. Method : This research was done at the Adam Malik Hospital and Bukit Barisan Army Hospital Medan, Indonesia from January 2013 - June 2014 and approved by the Ethics Committee for Health Research School of Medicine in University of Sumatera Utara. The subjects were recruited consecutively from study population. Diagnosis of CTTH was based on the diagnostic criteria as stated in the ICH X. We assessed pain severity by using the Numeric Rating Scale ( NRS ) for pain. Venous blood was taken to measure serum levels of TNF-α , IL-1, and IL-6. After subjetcs were given amitriptyline 25 mg once daily in the evening for ten days, NRS scores were reassessed and the second measurements of these cytokines serum level were done.

Abstract: A twelve (12) weeks experiment was conducted to investigate the nutritional values of dried bread fruit peel meal as a dietary replacement for maize on the growth of seventy five (75) grower giant African land snail (Archachatina marginata) of weight rang 38-42g in a completely randomized design (CRD) feeding trial. Fresh breadfruit peels were collected from roadside breadfruit fryers in Owode- Yewa town washed and sundried for one (1) week after which it was milled to form dried breadfruit peel meal (DBPM) then used as a replacement for maize at the level of 0, 25, 50, 75 and 100% in a formulated diet for giant African land snail as an alternative source of carbohydrate to form the dietary treatments viz; TA (control), TB, TC, TD, TE respectively. Each treatment was replicated three times with 5 snails per replicate. The formulated diets were supplied ad-libitum. Bi-weekly body weight gain (BWG), shell length (SL), aperture radius (AR) and shell width (SW) was measured. The results show that statistical significant different (P < 0.05) occurred among the treatments in term of body weight gain (BWG), shell length (SL) aperture radius (AR) and shell width (SW). Dietary treatment TC (50%) dried breadfruit peel meal replacement was recorded to have influence more growth in all the parameters measured and recommended for use by animal feed industries and snail farmers mostly in the rural and peri-rural areas where fresh breadfruit is in abundant.

Abstract: These days, Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) bacil is estimated to have infected one third of the world's population. World Health Organization (WHO) data shows that in 2011 there were 8.7 million case of tuberculosis (TB) or equivalent to 125 cases per 100.000 of the world’s population. Some studies have been done to understand the role of certain genes toward the susceptibility of TB patients, most of those studies focused on genes that are involved in signal pathway of interferon gamma (IFN-γ). Interferon gamma is one of the cytokine that has a role in pathogenesis of pulmonary tuberculosis. Single nucleotide polymorphism of IFN-γ at +874 T/A position in the first intron is reported to have association with pulmonary TB in different population. The aim of this study is to investigate the genetic variation of IFN-γ in +874 T/A and its relation with IFN-γ plasma level in pulmonary tuberculosis patients. The study’s method is cross sectional. Blood sample was taken from the veins of new AFB (Acid-Fast Bacillus) positive tuberculosis patients. Purification examination of Deoxyribonucleic Acid (DNA) and Polymerase Chain Reaction-Restriction Fragment Length Polymorphism (PCR-RFLP) for determining the genotype of IFN-γ genes and the level of IFN-γ is measured using Enzyme Linked Analysis Techniques Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA). The data is presented using tables and pictures. There is a significant association between IFN-γ +874T/A genetic variations with the plasma level of IFN-γ. There is a domination of IFN-γ +874T/A heterozygote genotype found in pulmonary TB population with positive +1of AFB and far advanced lesion on chest x-ray.

Abstract: The development of differential pulse Polarographic (DPP) method for determination of riboflavin in pharmaceutical formulation was investigated. As first, we studied the electrochemical behaviour of riboflavin by DPP using a dropping mercury electrode (DME) as working and Hg/Hg2Cl2, Cl-(sat) as a reference electrode in Britton-Robinson (BR) buffer (pH 3.0−10). The results that were obtained showed that, the BR buffer solution with pH 7.0 was the best medium for reduction of riboflavin on the mercury electrode at peak potential (Ep) -1.48 V. The range of linearity was found to be from 1.0 to 16.0 ppm with limit of detection of (LOD) 0.915 ppm and limit of quantification (LOQ) was 3.050 ppm with R2 value was 0.997. Statistical analysis proved that the method was precise, reproducible, selective, specific, and accurate for analysis of riboflavin in pharmaceutical formulation.

Abstract: Antepartum hemorrhage (APH) is a grave obstetrical emergency. It is leading cause of perinatal death . Aims of the present study were to study perinatal outcome in patients with antepartum hemorrhage. It is a prospective study carried out over a period of one year (2011-12) on 100 women admitted with the diagnosis of APH at Pt. B.D Sharma medical college, Rohtak, Haryana, India, a tertiary care center. Perinatal outcome recorded according to gestational age, Apgar score, mode of delivery, weight of baby, neonatal mortality and morbidity. Perinatal mortality was higher in vaginally delivered patients (71.4%) in comparison to patients who had caesarean section (53.8%) in abruptio placentae cases. Perinatal mortality decreases with increasing baby weight in placenta previa cases, while perinatal mortality is even high in babies more than 2500 gm in abruptio placentae cases. 79% babies had low apgar score and perinatal mortality in this group was 50.6% while 21% babies with higher Apgar >7 had mortality of 4.7% only.


Abstract: - A novel active biocatalytic reaction system is proposed by covalently immobilizing porcine pancreas trypsin within the thermore-sponsive polymer shell of superparamagnetic Fe3O4 nanoparticles. Active ester-functional nanocarriers suitable for the immobilization of amino functional targets are obtained in a single polymeriza-tion step by grafting-from copolymerization of an active ester monomer from superparamagnetic cores. The comonomer, oligo(ethylene glycol) methyl ether methacrylate, has excellent water solubility at room temperature, biocompatibility, and a tunable lower critical solution temperature (LCST) in water. The phase separation can alternatively be initiated by magnetic heating caused by magnetic losses in ac magnetic fields.

Abstract: The success of a film in recent years has been largely dependent on the marketing of the film. Since cinema has always had a profound influence on the lives of people, being a larger than life media, film makers go the extra mile to woo the audience. Be it sci-fi, love stories, action dramas or family sagas, the marketing of the package is very important. Keeping this in mind, over the years the ways of presenting themes in films have been varied and innovative. Social realities have been presented by film makers often in a serious tone creating a niche audience for the same, distancing such films from a mass audience. In recent times film makers have tried to portray social realities differently. In a first of its kind, Shyam Benegal has attempted to portray social realities through the tool of humour and satire. The present paper will attempt to study this practice of using social realities as a marketing tool by film makers, with special emphasis to Shyam Benegal’s ‘Welcome to Sajjanpur’.

Abstract: Colorectal carcinoma is the most common malignancy of the gastrointestinal tract and the second leading cause of cancer deaths. Five-year survival rate in patients with localized disease is 94%. Early detection and subsequent prompt treatment of colorectal carcinomas provide a better five years survival rate. Higher detection rate can be achieved if patients over 40 years of age with symptoms are submitted to a series of investigations including sigmoidoscopy, barium enema and colonoscopy. Colon cancer screening not only detects the disease at an early, more favorable stage, but also prevents disease by removing premalignant polyps.

Abstract: This paper presents a study of a D-STATCOM (Distribution Static Compensator) used for load balancing and harmonic reduction. The basic idea of the voltage sag mitigation, using a D-STATCOM is to dynamically inject a current of desired amplitude, frequency and phase into the grid line. The proposed method uses the instantaneous reactive power theory for generating reference values of current that need to be injected into the point of connection D-STATCOM in order to compensate the voltage errors. The proposed method offers structural simplicity and less calculation complexity. Simulation results indicate that this method is effective and D-STATCOM has good performance to balance the load and mitigate harmonic components of current.

Abstract: The three important objectives of any project are time, cost and quality. In today scenario delivering projects in least possible time at least cost within maximum available budget has got a critical issue to the manager. Firstly, two different approaches crashing critical activities (CCA) and stretching non critical activities (SNA) are compared to illustrate the gauge of which approach to be used to complete the project within the maximum available budget and within least number of steps. Depending on five construction projects it is observed that the SNA approach is better than CCA approach. Secondly, evaluation of projects with respect to the criteria is generated. Next these evaluations are compared with respect to the criteria. Finally, the interactive technique is used for the selection of most desirable project. A numerical example is presented to illustrate the approaches and selection of desirable project out of the given projects.

Abstract: In the present scenario world is facing a serious problem of the polymer wastes due to its non-biodegradable nature. Production of the natural fiber composite is one of the noble approaches to minimize this problem and modify the polymer based materials as partially biodegradable. In last two decades many researchers have been investigating and exploring new natural fibers and their composites with polymers as matrix material. Due to various advantages and eco-friendly nature, natural fiber composites are replacing conventional materials and glass fibers in moderate strength applications. Strength of natural fiber/polymer composites highly depend upon interfacial strength between hydrophilic fiber and hydrophobic polymers. In this paper potential of a new natural fiber as midrib of coconut palm leaf is investigated for the purpose of synthesis of a new natural fiber composite. Tensile properties of midribs and interfacial strength between midrib and polyester resin and critical embedded length are determined by tensile test and fiber pull-out test. Results show that midrib of coconut palm leaves have potential for development of natural fiber composite.

Abstract: In Sri Lanka there is a high potential for cultivating fruit-crops for the domestic and export markets. Sri Lanka’s per capita consumption of fruits remains far below the required average daily intake of 40g (edible portion) for a balanced diet (Research Institute MRI). The present economic growth in Sri Lanka will create a higher demand for fruits in the local market that could to be matched with higher production. Hence the Fruit Sector also has a greater potential to contribute to increase the national income, employment opportunities, and the nutrition and health status of the people. Demand for underutilized fruits and fruit-products, could be increased through awareness programs on the benefits of these products and market promotion. Although the Sri Lankan fruits have high demand in local and foreign markets. The major challenge faced by exporters is finding exportable quality fruits in sufficient qualities.

Abstract: A field experiment was conducted at the Sher-e-Bangla Agricultural University Farm, Dhaka 1207, during the kharif season of 2014 to study the effects of Phosphorus and Zinc on the growth and yield of Mungbean (BARI Mug 6). Four levels of phosphorus (P) (0, 15, 20 and 25 kg P ha-1) and three levels of zinc (Zn) (0, 1.5 and 3 kg Zn ha-1) were used in the study. The results revealed that seed and stover yield of mungbean increased with increasing levels of phosphorus and zinc up to certain level. Incase of P the maximum significant seed yield (1.5 t ha-1) and stover yield (2.47 t ha-1) were obtained with the treatment P3 (25 kg P ha-1) and the minimum significant seed yield (1.11 t ha-1) and stover yield (2.06 t ha-1) were obtained with the treatment P0 (0 kg P ha-1). Incase of Zn the maximum significant seed yield (1.45 t ha-1) and stover yield (2.42 t ha-1) were obtained with the treatment Zn2 (3 kg Zn ha-1) and the minimum significant seed yield (1.27 t ha-1) and stover yield (2.21 t ha-1) were obtained with the treatment Zn0 (0 kg Zn ha-1). The maximum significant plant height (52.05 cm), number of branch plant-1 (2.87), seed yield (1.68 t ha-1), yield contributing factors like number of pods plant-1 (20.86), number of seeds pod-1 (12.65) and weight of 1000-seeds (45.11 g) were obtained with the treatment combination P2Zn 2 (20 kg P ha-1 + 3 kg Zn ha-1).

Abstract: The study examines the trend of three main climatic variables (eg. Temperature, Rainfall and Relative humidity) for Rajshahi, Bangladesh by using the time series data for the 1972-2010 period and assesses the relationship between the variables and the yield of three major rice crops (eg. Aus, Aman and Boro). The results of Ordinary Least Squares (OLS) reveal the significant effects of climatic variables on rice yields and these effects vary among the three rice crops. Increase in Temperature and Relative humidity and decrease in Rainfall have both positive and negative effects on the yield. The three climatic variables can explain 23, 91 and 89% of the variance in Aus, Aman and Boro production. The study also evaluates the local knowledge and resource based adaptation techniques adopted by the farmers. Different coping mechanisms like change in transplantation time, cropping pattern change, digging of ponds, selection of short duration species etc are being adopted to minimize the impacts of climatic variations on rice production. Necessity and development of temperature tolerant Aman and Boro rice varieties and farmer’s adaptive strategies are prominent.

Abstract: Most individuals in the US spend a significant amount of time at work. Happiness at work becomes an important element of an individual’s overall happiness. Some findings suggest that job satisfaction can be determined by each person’s internal characteristics and not necessarily due to the employer. These internal characteristics may be related to culture. Miami is a city with a large Latino immigrant community. It was hypothesized that there is a significant difference between Latino immigrants and born-in-America individuals in their perception of happiness at work. In addition, it was also hypothesized that there is a significant correlation between the perception of happiness at work and the individual’s acculturation level. This research study utilized 100 respondents, who were selected via convenient quota sampling. The sample was divided into two groups according to their immigration status: Latino immigrants, and individuals who were born in America. Participants were given a questionnaire with 25 items intended to measure perception of happiness at work, acculturation level, and demographic information. A t-test and a correlation were used to test the hypotheses. However neither of these hypotheses were confirmed by the research results. These results suggest that Latino immigrants and American born individuals are more similar than different in terms of happiness at work.

Abstract: As per the International Energy Agency, the unprecedented levels of economic growth emerging in the developing nations will make them responsible for future growth in energy demand and greenhouse gas emissions. Based on the International Energy Agency 2009 report, rapidly growing energy demand in developing countries is projected to double by 2030. The development, transfer and use of renewable energy technologies are promising ways towards low-carbon development in these countries. Recognizing the importance of sustainable energy for sustainable development, the origin of transferring sustainable energy technologies in the context of the international climate cooperation and in particular from developed countries to developing countries, lies in the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).

Abstract: Since time immemorial, one of the most heavily needed and relied upon functionality of computers has been the memory. Although the technical aspects and the implementation methods may vary, most computers these days have the necessary hardware to process information and safe-keep it to be used in future as and when required. Database Management Systems (DBMS) are higher-level software programs that work with lower-level application programming interfaces (APIs) that take care of these operations. To help solving different kinds of problems, new kinds of DBMSs have been developed (e.g. Relational, NoSQL, etc.) along with applications programs implementing them (e.g. MySQL, PostgreSQL, MongoDB, Redis, etc). In this paper we aim at comparing both the database options for various CRUD operations namely Create, Read, Update and Delete for small and large datasets and then use this analysis to decide which database to use for any given set of data.

Abstract: Traditional medicines or herbal formulations can serve as the source of potential new chemotherapeutic drugs. Nowadays novel plant derived natural products have been designed to determine biological structure-activity relationships. A new family of betulinic acid derivatives were synthesized and the structure-activity relationship of the compounds was initially evaluated by comparing their in vitro cytotoxicity against 4 human cancer cell lines U937, HepG2, HT29, MCF-7 and non cancerous human PBMC. Betulinic Acid derivative, BC-SM-05 was the most potent inducer of apoptosis and the most effective inhibitor of cell growth and proliferation with IC50 value 19.6 µM for colon carcinoma cell line HT-29. In addition, BC-SM-05 at IC50 concentration was also found to generate increased ROS production and caspases activation. Moreover, HT-29 cells treated with BC-SM-05 and stained with Hoechst 33258 showed formation of apoptotic bodies and DNA degradation whereas untreated cells had intact nuclei. All together our data indicates that BC-SM-05 induces apoptosis in HT-29 cells via mitochondrial dependent pathway may prove itself to be a potential therapeutic agent for colon cancer, providing a basis for the development of the compound as a novel anticancer agent.

Abstract: Portable devices demand for low power dissipation. To reduce power dissipation, the subsystem in a device needs to be designed to operate at low power and also consume low power. Significant progress has been made in low power design of dynamic RAM’s. Static RAM’s are also critical in most VLSI based system on chip applications. Basic SRAM bit cell consists of 6T. Few designs using 4T are also available in open literature. In this paper a highly reliable, low power and high speed SRAM design is proposed and comparisons were made with 6T and basic 4T SRAM designs.

Abstract: The position of women in the 19th century was a critical one. The society was governed in the patriarchal mode. The public sphere was not accessible to women as it was to men. Various kinds of limitations were imposed on women’s conducts especially in the fields of law, education and even on lifestyle. Again, side by side, there were various positive changes taking place around that time. For example, the Married Women’s Property Act was passed in 1870 which protected the legal position of women within the family. The 19th century was also important as a time when feminist campaigns to improve the legal status of women were undertaken in areas such as vote, the family and reproduction. The family was traditionally viewed as a private zone that was largely beyond the reach of the concerns of law. The feminist campaigns, to secure equality within the family, was therefore, viewed as threat to the stability of family life. The grounds have been prepared by such writers as Mary Wollstonecraft, who argued about the position of women in her book A Vindication of the Rights of Woman as early as in 1792. All these brought a new perspective in the Victorian society. In terms of all these changes, it is really interesting to see how hardy represents the position of women through the major women characters in his novel “The Mayor of Casterbridge”.

Abstract: This paper deals with recognizing and classifying handwritten characters and classifies it with respect to other characters in the method for attendance calculation system. Existing system of calculation of attendance contains manual calculation for the number of students present or absent in a class. In this paper we proposed a digitized method for calculating number of classes present and absent for a student which in the previous case is time consuming and may sometimes produce incorrect result in some cases. It uses features of a character extracted using feature extraction techniques. There are methods been proposed for feature extraction that can be simulated using support vector machine for further calculation of the attendance using the attendance register. Support vector machine is one of the techniques that are used to classify a handwritten character based on handwriting recognition and identify the digitized output Support vector machine classifies a character by using a large number of training set that needs to be fed into the database for the accurate output.

Abstract: In our daily life traffic signal controller plays a vital role in channeling the vehicles from one corner of the city to the other. This system not only maintains a systematic approach in terms of “vehicle management” but also reduces accidents and rushes in peak hours. The disadvantage of open loop system is poor “time management”. So the poor time management of open loop system is rectified by closed loop system, keeping in mind both efficiency and cost of the system.

Abstract: Disasters, both natural and man-made, are important factors that not only bring about widespread damages and socio-economic losses, but seriously retard human progress. At the same time, human societies, now more than ever before, are faced with delicate issues of achieving development and ensuring that development processes are sustained. Since the end of the last century, the issue of sustainability of developmental processes had become an issue of much dialogue and academic discourse, which has substantially dominated multilateral and international relations. This paper examines how disaster management strategies can be integrated with those of sustainable development. The paper discusses the disaster management cycle and shows how development considerations contribute to all its aspects. It concluded that for sustainable disaster management to be achieved and risk to disaster reduced, environmental considerations must be a central part of government and industry decision-making process.

Abstract: An experiment was conducted at the Horticulture Farm of Sher-e-Bangla Agricultural University, Bangladesh during the period from November 2013 to March 2014 to study the effect of different types of organic manure (no organic manure, cowdung, compost and litter) and mulching on (non-mulch, water hyacinth, rice straw and black polythene) the growth and yield of carrot. The experiment was conducted in a Randomized Complete Block Design with three replications. Application of organic manure and mulching significantly influenced the growth and yield of carrot. Cowdung resulted in the highest gross yield (39.05 t/ha) whereas, the plants received no organic manure produced the lowest for the same (33.03 t/ha). The highest gross (39.12 t/ha) and marketable (35.79 t/ha) yield was obtained from the black polythene mulch while the lowest was obtained from non mulched plot. Cowdung with black polythene mulch produced the highest yield (42.75 t/ha) followed by that of application of litter with black polythene mulch (41.46 t/ha). The lowest (32.00 t/ha) was recorded from the control.

Abstract: Lack of availability of medical instruments are frequent limitations in new-fangled surgeries in developing countries. Video-assisted thoracic surgery usually performed with Single lung ventilation (SLV) using a double lumen tube, at times lack of double lumen tubes necessitated the use of single lumen tubes with ‘double lung ventilation’ (DLV). The lack of evidence for the surgical and anaesthetic feasibility of the use of DLV dictated a review enabling a comparison with DLV for similar surgical procedures.

Abstract: The German language and German speaking countries are the center of attention of all teachers of the German language worldwide. Teachers of the German language master the German language in the course of their studies and then they teach it to their students or adult learners. In the process of preparing and giving their lectures they come across a lot of issues and, consequently, they do their utmost to handle them. Understandably, the main reason why both students and adult learners try to master the German language is to be able to communicate effectively with native speakers of the German language in their own country or in the German speaking countries. Bearing in mind the fact that approximately 100 million people speak German, it is not difficult to assume that there are many diverse dialects of the German language. However, this fact is not too alarming as the same is the case with many other languages in the world.

Abstract: In recent years the demand for low power devices has increased tremendously due to the migration of computer workstations to handheld devices that need real-time performance within the budget for physical size and energy dissipation. As a result of this there is a fast growth of battery operated portable applications such as PDAs, cell phones, laptops and other handheld devices. But also at the same time problems arising from continuous technology scaling have recently made power reduction an important design issue for the digital circuits and applications. Operating at low power causes SRAM read-stability and write- ability as major design constraints. The stability of read and write operations can be increased using Schmitt trigger based SRAM bit cells. In this paper the Schmitt trigger design is implemented in 8 transistor SRAM cell to increase read-stability and write-ability than the conventional 6T cell. The design is implemented in Tanner EDA tool and the results are observed.

Abstract: The study was conducted to examine the factors that have contributed to the causes and persistence of farmer-herder conflicts in Tanzania. The work is anchored on the fact that there have been numerous efforts by the government to bring to an end the conflicts between farmers and herders but these conflicts have been escalating and are becoming economically and socially unbearable. Respondents for the study included farmers, herders, and district level officials in Kilombero, Kiteto, Rufiji and Kilosa districts. Focus Group Discussions were conducted to collect information on conflict resolution mechanisms and the persistence of the conflicts in their areas. Key informants interviews and discussions involving individual farmers, herders, village leaders and district government leaders were also conducted. Major factors for the persistence of conflicts between farmers and herders were found to include policy deficiencies and contradictions, insecurity of land tenure, inadequacy of capacity of the local institutions, corrupt practices, poor coordination in resettling the migrants, inadequate capacity in village land use planning, and the heavy handed approaches used to resolve the conflicts.

Abstract: Deep drawing process has been an important manufacturing process to produce automotive parts of good strength and light weight. There are many process parameters and other factors that affect product quality produced by deep drawing. This paper is highlighting recent research work and results in deep drawing. Deep-drawing operations are performed to produce a light weight, high strength, low density, and corrosion resistible product. These requirements will increase tendency of wrinkling and other failure defects in the product. Parameters like as blank-holder pressure, punch radius, die radius, material properties, and coefficient of friction affect deep drawing process. So a great knowledge of process is required to produce product with minimum defects. This review paper has given the attention to gather recent development and research work in the area of deep drawing.

Abstract: The Visibility Representations [1] of a graph has been promoted for research extensively because of their significance in algorithmic graph theory as well as in VLSI layout, algorithm animation, visual languages and CASE tools etc. [2][3]. Rectangle Visibility Graph (RVG) used in VLSI chip design represents the node of a graph as a rectangle in a plane. Unit Rectangle Visibility Graph (URVG) means a presentation where each node is represented as unit rectangle in the plane. So, Unit Rectangle Visibility graph is applied for fixed dimensions of gates and various circuit components in computer chip applications. In this research, binary tree and ternary tree have been characterized as URV representations which will not only enhance URVR (Unit Rectangle Visibility Representation) but also expected to reduce both cost and labor in the field of various graph applications. To achieve this, two novel algorithms for URVR of these trees have been proposed.

Abstract: People get most of their news from television news channels. India has the unique feature of having news channels in English and in regional languages. Due to the cosmopolitan nature of the cities like Bangalore, there are news channels which are in English and Kannada broadcasting 24 hour news from the city. Common sense tells us that locally produced news and in the language of the people will have credibility as opposed to news coming from Delhi or Mumbai. Many studies have established this hypothesis that television news audience believes in local channels more than the so-called national networks. Credibility factor depends on a nine dimension credibility measuring scale. The researchers would like to find out if this hypothesis is right and the reasons for the same. For this a combination of audience perception study using a questionnaire would be conducted along with in-depth interviews with the programming heads of the local news channels.

Abstract: Reproducible synthetic approach for cadmium selenide quantum dot based on the pyrolysis of organometallic reagents injection into a hot non-coordinating solvent is reported. The synthesis of highly crystalline and monodisperse cadmium selenide quantum dots using inexpensive trioctylphosphine-coordinated selenium as precursor produce a discrete homogeneous nucleation under slow growth. The difference in the temperature of the precursor injection spurred the dissimilarity in the nanocrystal growth, crystallinity, shape and particle sizes. Oleic acid was used to protect the cadmium selenide quantum dots against oxidation and photon emission loss while an organic ligand layer trioctylphosphine was used to overcome predominant influences associated with agglomeration.

Abstract: The development of wireless technologies in recent years started an era of highly-effiencient information society. It is expected that the wireless technologies will become wider and deeper in the coming years. Understanding the greater importance of wireless communication in the future for both academies and industries around the world have initiated the study of the next generation, namely 5G, of wireless communication systems. The 5G technology ( fifth generation) also know as 2021 wireless network technology is the foremost phase of wireless communication standards ahead of current 4G/IMT standard. The coming 5G technology and Information & Communication technology (ICT) networks signify evolution of the globally connected digital society. The main contribution of this paper is definition of 5G i.e. Fifth Generation mobile network concept which is seen as user-centric concept instead of operator-centric as we have in 3G or service-centric concept as seen for 4G. In the proposed concept the mobile user is on the top of all.

Abstract: In recent years, there has been an exponential growth in wireless communication systems. This is basically due to the manufacture of small size and high performance devices. Many communication devices such as filter, duplexer and oscillator require resonator as a key component. Acoustic resonators have become a key technology of growing wireless field as the propagation velocity of acoustic wave is almost five times lower than the electromagnetic waves thus resulting in small size devices. BAW resonator can be used as narrow band filter in radio-frequency applications.

Abstract: Hacking became one of the world's most famous information technology problem. It's the work of whom doesn't has a work, a work to gain more money, a work to harm others, and a work for many other purposes. Almost every week, if it is not every day, we hear about hacking attacks that hits many significant sites in the country, such as: Ministries, Banks, Uniform sites and many other important persons accounts on the social network sites. Fortunately, not all the hackers are professional in hacking, but they trained them self on one or more of such programs for one of the previous purposes. On the other side, the secret of success in such hacking attacks is that the intended attacked targets did not take the proper precautionary measures to protect themselves from such attacks.

Abstract: Learners of the German language, irrespective of whether they learn the language in a German speaking country or in their native country, have one common goal – to be able to communicate in German in the German speaking countries as well as in the rest of the countries in the world. The German speaking countries do not include only Germany, but also some other European countries. What all these countries have in common is the usage of the German language, i.e. variants of the German language. Apart from the language which is the major precondition for successful communication, one should also consider the various civilization information of the German speaking countries, i.e. the D-A-CH-L countries (D for Germany (Deutschland), A for Austria, CH for Switzerland (Schweiz), and L for Liechtenstein). Hence, the inclusion of the D-A-CH-L concept in the process of teaching the German language as a foreign language presents itself as a necessity. This paper analyses the application of the D-A-CH-L concept in teaching German in primary and secondary education in the Republic of Macedonia. Firstly, a survey has been conducted in randomly selected schools. Then, an analysis of the results is presented which is accompanied by comments and conclusions based on the research.

Abstract: The most popular application of holography is using the technique to make three-dimensional images. This paper describes an algorithm for computationally generating holograms along with methods to fabricate the hologram. The phrase, “digital holography", is common place in the optics community; it describes the methods used to reconstruct holographic images from physically recorded holograms as well as the methods used to construct holograms from virtual objects using a computer. In fact we have the ability to create digital holograms from imaginary objects and then recreate the image of those objects using the same digital holograms, the entire process performed on a single computer. A computer simulation technique for generating Fourier holograms using the Fraunhoffer diffraction formula is applied. These generated Fourier holograms were analyzed for experimental reconstruction. A detailed analysis was done on the computation and numerical reconstruction. Filtering technique was used to analyze its feasibility to be used in image processing. Corresponding reconstructions were verified by MATLAB for computer simulation. The algorithm of the MATLAB program is discussed.

Abstract: Eichhornia crassipes (Mart.) Solms is a free-floating aquatic macrophyte growing normally to a height of 0.5 m to 1 m. This weed causes, substantial economic and ecological harm, warranting its removal, lest the impacts of the weed should become permanent. From an ecological perspective, the most effective, management approach is to make use of the weed for various purposes. The present study offers the novel scheme for utilization of roots of this invasive weed plant. In this instance the 80% methanol extract and methanol fraction from the roots of this weed were tested for its colouring properties on different textile substrates viz. wool, nylon, silk, cotton and polyester. Open beaker and infra red colouring based methods were utilized for colouring of different textile fabric substrates. The colour fastness testing and colorimetric evaluation of the coloured samples has been carried out employing standard methods. The 80% methanol extract as well as the methanol fraction exhibited good colouring property on wool, nylon and silk. The presence of alkaloids, flavonoids, tannins, terpenoids, quinones, phenols and other phytochemicals enables good colour yield/depth of 80% methanol extract and methanol fraction on substrates. Thus, the colour extract from the roots may prove to be effective for conventional colouring and may provide commercial importance of this natural colourant for textile applications.

Abstract: The main objective of path planning is to acquire a collision free path for a mobile robot operating in various environments. Diverse approaches and techniques have been implemented to solve a path planning problem by considering certain factors like obstacle shape, its orientation, type of environment etc. Based on the surrounding environment the robot navigates globally or locally. This paper focuses on the navigation of mobile robot operating in a static environment consisting of elliptical and polygonal obstacles. A mathematical formulation has been developed to obtain these paths and also to find the shortest path among them using Centre of Gravity Approach (CGA) and Coordinate Reference Frame (CRF) technique. The simulation results prove the proposed approach to be effective as the robot navigates to the defined target point without colliding with the obstacles in the environment.

Abstract: The diverse functions of wetlands are being adversely affected by human activities. Harike wetland has high ecological significance as it provides home to diverse flora and fauna, habitat for feeding and breeding and social interactions. This paper discusses an integrated approach of pollution indices and statistical techniques to assess the intensity of heavy metal pollution discharged from various industries in Harike wetland. This wetland is highly polluted due to the rapid industrialization, urbanization and dumping of solid wastes. The water quality of the wetland has been studied with reference to various toxic metals. The metals analyzed include lead, chromium, iron, copper, nickel, zinc and cadmium. The quality of water has drastically deteriorated due to the mixing of the heavy metals. Most of the metal ions were in higher concentration compared to the international standards. It has been observed that the quality of water is not safe for various aquatic and even unfit for human drinking and irrigation purposes, therefore, necessary conservation and management measures should be taken to improve the deteriorating water quality of this globally recognized wetland.

Abstract: Corporate social responsibility has much broader implications for the nation as a whole. It reduces dependency on the government for social change. Most governmental programmers quickly become embroiled in political manipulation, corruption, communal overtones, and bitter infighting. There is a need for evaluation and proper strategy for public-private partnership with well-defined controls and processes for the best use of resources for social change. Social reforms driven by the community will bring people together, turn the attention of the masses to tasks that benefit society, and reinforce peace and harmony. Social responsibility should not be limited to large successful corporations; there should be greater participation from most small, medium, and large businesses.

Abstract: Global food production has seen a phenomenal growth of almost three times in the last five decades. Unfortunately, still a sizeable section of people in developing and poor countries remain hungry and malnourished. New strategies are therefore needed to not only feed the hungry in an healthy and nourishing way but also to protect the environment from overuse of chemical pesticides and insecticides, thus maintaining a balance with nature too. Advances in agricultural biotechnology have led to genetically modified varieties of many plants and crops like cotton, maize, soya, tomato, and brinjal etc. In India too, a genetically modified variety of cotton, Bt cotton has been cultivated since 2002, which is said to provide resistance against bollworm.

Abstract: Oxidative stress is inevitable. Preventive actions should be taken to minimize the oxidative damages to biomolecules which may lead to health problems. Murraya koenigii leaves are reported to possess potent antioxidant properties. This study was initiated to evaluate the Total Phenol Content (TPC) and Antioxidant Activity of aqueous extracts of M. koenigii. Leaves were dried to constant weight, powdered and sieved. TPC was estimated in the cold and hot aqueous extracts of the M. koenigii leaf powder stored at room temperature and at 4oC in monthly interval for six months. The initial TPC of cold and hot extracts of Murraya koenigii leaf powder was 22.6 and 25.08µg TAE/g dry weight respectively. When the Murraya koenigii leaf powder was stored at room temperature for 6 months, TPC of cold and hot water extracts was 11.02 & 11.71 µg TAE/g dry weight respectively while the TPC of cold and hot water extracts of the leaf powder stored at 4oC for six months respectively was 12.31 & 12.84 µg TAE/g dry weight. Extraction of antioxidant activity was better with hot water than with cold water. TPC of Murraya keonigii powder decreased when stored both at room temperature and at 4oC. Both cold as well as hot extracts exhibited antioxidant activity even after storing for 6 months. At 3 months the decline in the TPC of the powder stored at Room temperature is higher than that stored at 4oC. In the Siddha Medicine the lifespan of ‘Chooranam’ which is prepared from herbs is used for 3 months. Hence the leaf powder can be used for the ‘Chooranam’ preparation. However freshly prepared leaf powder is recommended for the preparation of the ‘Chooranam’.
