Abstract: The present study aims to examine the vocabulary learning strategies employed by Thai-tertiary level students with different genders (female/male) and levels of vocabulary proficiency (high , moderate and low) . The VLS questionnaire was employed to elicit the data from 905 Thai EFL students studying in the Northeast of Thailand. Data analysis involved descriptive statistics, an Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) and the chi-square test. The results revealed that students’ gender andvocabulary proficiency level affected their overall VLS use, use of VLSs by the category and the individual strategy levels.The variation patterns of students’ VLS use were found in relation the two variables.


Abstract: The biometry, biomass production, density and the sex ratio of two edible venerid clams, Paphia malabarica and Meretrix casta and the hydrologic parameters of the clam beds of Ashtamudi Estuary were monitored for one year. The results of the study indicated that the density and distribution of these clams were influenced by salinity. The largest Paphia clams were obtained in November and the Meretrix clams in April. In P.malabarica the tissue mass production increased from July to December and in M.casta from April to December. In both species the male and female sex ratio was found to be 1:1. The P.malabarica was denser than M.casta in the estuary. Increased biomass production, percentage edibility and nutritional values were recorded highest during the monsoon season (June-September) indicating the best time for harvest to keep the fishery sustainable.

Abstract: Dry seeds of groundnut (Arachis hypogaea) varieties Samnut 10 and Samnut 20 obtained from the Ministry of Agriculture, Ilorin, Nigeria were treated with sodium azide concentrations (10, 20, 30, 40 and 50 mM) to evaluate the vegetative and yield performances of the varieties in response to treatment. Low concentrations (10-30 mM) promoted fast germination, though germination, percentage germination and seedling survival decreased with increased in concentrations. Highest vegetative growth was induced by 50 mM concentration 2-week after sowing (WAS) and correlations were established performances of the two varieties in relation to different concentrations of sodium azide. The plant vegetative traits evaluated at 4WAS, 6WAS, and 8WAS showed significance responses to different treatment concentrations. Highest performance was obtained at 50 mM, the trend which was sustained till maturity. Early maturity was achieved in all the concentrations applied and quantitative yield parameters evaluated were highest among 50 mM treated plants. In general, the performances of the two varieties were optimal in responses to 50 mM concentration and both varieties (Samnut 10 and Samnut 20) responded similarly to sodium azide treatment of different concentrations. These findings suggest that sodium azide can be utilised to create variability among existing germplasm for improving vegetative and yield parameters of groundnut.

Abstract: A substantial number of premature deliveries occur in hospitals lacking neonatal intensive care facilities. Advances in perinatal and neonatal care over the last 30 years have contributed to improved survival among extremely low birth weight (ELBW) infants. Little is known about how birth outcomes vary in rural referral hospitals, by degree of rural isolation. We conducted a retrospective cohort study, from Feb 2012- Jan 2013, about etiologies and the mortality of preterm birth in MVJ medical college, Hoskote, which is a rural hospital, Much higher neonatal death rates were observed for preterm or low-birth weight babies in rural areas with no metropolitan influence, suggesting inadequate access to optimal neonatal care. We conclude that birth outcomes in rural areas differ according to the degree of rural isolation. Fetuses and infants of mothers from rural areas with weak or no metropolitan influence are particularly vulnerable to the risks of death during the perinatal and postnatal periods.

Abstract: - We report a case of recurrent intrahepatic cholestasis in an 4-year-old boy who developed four episodes of purities and jaundice at the ages of 6months, 1yr 2yr and 4 years. Each episodes had lasted 6-8 weeks and the 2nd and 3rd episodes were associated with fever which had lasted for 4-6 days. The liver functions were minimally deranged and serum bilirubin, returned to normal between attacks. Investigation in previous episodes proved cholestatic hepatitis and excluded other causes of liver disease. First three episodes had been diagnosed as viral hepatitis and managed for the same. On 4th recurrence child had been extensively investigated and proved to have features of benign recurrent intrahepatic cholestasis (BRIC). Rarity of the disease and its unpredictable clinical morbidity and resemblance to viral hepatitis prompted us to report this case.

Abstract: The periodic incidence of different sucking pests on okra during the crop season was significant at different period of crop growth. The period mean revealed that the aphid population was reached to its peak level (27.17 aphids / 3 leaves) during 14th weeks after sowing (first week of July). The aphids were considered as sucking insect pests. The population of aphids was more abundant on the crop during June and July 2011. Results revealed that maximum activity was recorded during July and the correlation studies were made between the incidence of major sucking insect pests and select weather parameters. Aphids showed positive correlation with rainfall (r = 0.261) and negative correlation with both maximum and minimum temperature. Aphids showed positive correlation with relative humidity.

Abstract: In the past, Cefotaxime inhibited greater than 90% of enteric bacilli at a minimum inhibitory concentrations of less than or equal to 0.5 microgram/ml. But with the emergence of ESBL (Extended Spectrum Beta Lactamase) producing bacteria the activity of cefotaxime became questionable. So the objective of this study was to see the in-vitro efficacy of cefotaxime against common clinical isolates in this hospital. 207 culture positive samples from different sources (urine, sputum, pus and blood) were processed. Isolation and identification of microorganism was done by standard microbiological procedure and antibiotic susceptibility testing was done by Kirby Bauer disc diffusion method, MIC was calculated by E-test strip (HiComb MIC Test) and interpreted following CLSI guidelines. The sensitivity of different isolates was found to be as follows: Staphylococcus aureus 66-70%, Enterobacteriaceae (ESBL non producers) 50-75%, Moraxella 91% whereas Streptoococcus pneumoniae and Haemophilus influenzae were 100% sensitive against cefotaxime. Acinetobacter spp however was 33-75% sensitive against cefotaxime. The MIC90 of all the isolates were within the sensitive range.

Abstract: Researches have shown that the sound generated through chanting has enormous positive effects on the human cognitive abilities. Therefore this study was taken to understand whether chanting (with/ without music) has any therapeutic effect on sports competitive anxiety (SCA). 84 NSO students of Kamala Nehru College (DU) were selected on the basis of homogeneity on Sports Competitive Anxiety Test (SCAT) developed by Martens et al 1990. The selected subjects were then divided into 3 groups namely Group-A (N= 32), Group-B (N=32) and Group-C (N= 20). All the 3 groups did 40 minutes of NSO activity, twice a week, for 8 weeks. While group-A did an extra session of chanting with light music for 20 minutes; group-B did an extra session of chanting with no music for 20 minutes and group-C did not perform any chanting activity over that period. The result of the study showed that all the three groups had significantly reduced their SCA after doing the chanting practices/ NSO activity. But when Scheffe Post Hoc multiple comparisons were done it was found that SCA of Group-C was significantly higher than the group-A and group-B, while there was no significant difference found between group-A and group-B. Therefore it was concluded that chanting significantly reduces the sports competitive anxiety and hence can be used as a therapeutic treatment to control it but which way of chanting is more beneficial, is still not clear. Hence this indicates a further need for research to know the most effective way of chanting practice to reduce the sports competitive anxiety.

Abstract: The monitoring morphological changes of fronds of G. multipartita during the study period, shows that the maximum growth was reached in June 2012. This summer form is characterized by large fronds with regular and abundant branches. After growth arrest during the summer, a new phase of growth more or less pronounced depending on the year is observed in autumn. Fronds then degenerate to make room for new growth in January on pérennant disk. The study indicates that it would be possible to exploit the species in June, before the fronds begin to degenerate.

Abstract: This paper examines the basic aspects of standard of living of the Indian origin estate sector Tamil society, which is a very unique social group living in the central highlands of Sri Lanka. The Indian origin estate sector Tamils are the people, who were brought by the colonial British from South India with the purpose of satisfying the increasing labour needs in the nineteenth century Sri Lankan plantations. Even after spending nearly two centuries in the island, this group of people still lives in a poor condition with many unchanged socio-economic structures of life. Trying to understand the living condition of this distinct social group, this work has been done by referring to their all socio-economic performances through an in depth analysis.

Abstract: Sub lethal toxicity of phenolic compounds in a tropical teleost fish Oreochromis. mossambicus was investigated. Experimental animals were exposed to sub lethal (1/10th of 96 hr LC50) concentration of phenol (3.12 mg l-1) and m-cresol (2.2 mg l-1) for a period of 21 days using a semi-static test bioassay system. Significant (P<0.05) lack of cortisol response was observed on exposure to both the phenolics. Furthermore total carbohydrate significantly (P<0.05) decreased in liver and muscle and blood glucose level was also significantly (P<0.05) decreased. The LDH (lactate dehydrogenase) showed significantly (P<0.05) elevated activity in the liver and kidney of fishes treated with phenol suggesting anaerobic glycolysis. Elevation in the activity (P<0.05) of ALT (alanine amino transferase) can be considered as a response to meet the excess energy demand. Increased serum ACP (acid phosphatase) activity suggests an increase in lysosomal mobilization. Also a significant (P<0.05) inhibition of branchial ATPases (Na+K+-ATPase, Mg2+-ATPase and Ca2+-ATPase) was observed. Moreover gill histopathological analysis on phenol exposure revealed severe lesions such as architectural loss, necrosis, desquamation of epithelial layer, hyperplasia and telangiectesis. Significant changes observed on m-cresol exposure were lamellar necrosis, lamellar shortening, telangiectesis and lamellar clubbing. Phenolic compounds even at very low concentrations (1/10th of 96 hr LC50) for a short duration of 21 days induce metabolic stress, impair branchial functioning and are likely to induce tissue damage in O. mossambicus.

Abstract: The combination of anemia in malarial infestations ranges from nutritional deficiency to marrow suppression. An immune hemolytic anemia in Plasmodium falciparum malaria is also a part of this wide-ranging spectrum. But the co-existence of cold agglutinins in a Plasmodium falciparum malaria has only sporadically been reported in literature. We present a case of a patient with falciparum malaria who developed severe anemia and jaundice at the time of presentation. The Coombs’ test and cold agglutinin test were negative. This case underlines a rare association of cold agglutinins in Plasmodium falciparum malaria.

Abstract: English has gained the status of an international language, with its intercontinental proliferation. In the present context of teaching English to engineering students it was observed that students have basic communication skills. However, these skills are inadequate to meet the changing educational trends. To get an edge over the competitors, students are left with hardly any choice but to add values to their communication skills to exhibit their true potential. But the importance to these communication skills at times are downplayed in engineering programmes in favour of an over emphasis on the technical skills.

Abstract: Relative importance or weight of criterion indicates the priority assigned to the criterion by the decision-maker while ranking the alternatives in a multicriterion decision-making (MCDM) environment. Multicriterion decision making (MCDM) has emerged as an effective methodology due to its ability to combine quantitative and qualitative criteria selection of the best alternative. Concurrently, fuzzy logic is gaining importance due to its flexibility in handling imprecise subjective data. In the present study two fuzzy logic-based MCDM methods, namely similarity analysis (SA) and decision analysis (DA), are adopted and developed as a fuzzy decision system (FUDS) and applied to a case study of the Aringar Anna Sugar Project (AASP), Tamil nadu, India, for selecting the best-performing irrigation subsystem. It is found that both SA and DA suggested the same irrigation subsystem as the best. It is concluded that application of fuzzy logic methodology for real-world decision-making problems is found to be effective.

Abstract: Sedimentary rock aggregates are commonly used in Nigeria for structural concrete production. Due to its variability in quality, strength and contaminations it is being suspected as one of causes of many structural failures in the country. This paper investigated the quality of 8 – 16mm size gravels from Oji-River piths by optimizing the strength of concrete made from it through Scheffe’s simplex method of optimization and produced a mathematical model which gave an optimum compressive strength of 11.78N/mm2 and mix ratio of 1:1.4:2.5 for a water/cement ratio of 0.53. Because of the small nature of this optimum strength and the general predictions from the model, it was recommended that such aggregate (8 – 16mm from Oji-River) be restricted to oversite concretes, columns and lintels of buildings of load bearing walls and a maximum storey of three; and it should never be used for slabs of suspended floors, retaining walls, bridges and culverts.

Abstract: Discrimination against female children has been a topic of debate. It has been a subject of concern and sociological significance. This subject raises the cultural aspects about the role of a female child in society, what her human rights are as a human being and a number of sensitive issues. This issue is important because there is nearly universal consensus on the need for gender equality. Gender based discrimination against female children is pervasive across the world. It is seen in all the strata of society and manifests in various forms. As per the literature, female child has been treated inferior to male child and this is deeply engraved in the mind of the female child. Some argue that due to this inferior treatment the females fail to understand their rights. This is more predominant in India as well as other lesser developed countries.

Abstract: The length -weight relationship and condition factor (K) of Semiplotus semiplotus (McClelland, 1839), were studied for an economically important species of food fish from the Dikrong river system of mountainous state of Arunachal Pradesh, India. A total of 120 specimens were randomly collected using cast net and related contraptions from the water bodies and length (mm) and weight (g) of each of the specimen was measured following standard equipments. The result revealed that length- weight of the species followed the cube-law indicating an isometric growth pattern of the species in its natural habitat. The length –weight regression equation for the species in general can be expressed as Log W = -2.7259+3.04269logTLand the length-weight regression equations of males, females and juveniles respectively were Log W = -2.7242+ 3.0926log TL, Log W = -2.7635+ 3.2592 log TL and Log W = -1.2375 + 2.6135 log TL having r value respectively 0.90674 , 0.98107,0.959 for each cases . All these values indicate positive correlation between length and weight in Semiplotus semiplotus in regard to their sex as well as growth stages. General wellbeing of the fish is found to be good, as indicated by the values of condition factor, which were nearer to or greater than 1.

Abstract: The management of vast amount of data is quite expensive due to the requirements of high storage capacity and qualified personnel. Storage-as-a-Service (SaaS) offered by cloud service providers (CSPs) is a paid facility that enables organizations to outsource their data to be stored on remote servers. Thus, SaaS reduces the maintenance cost and mitigates the burden of large local data storage at the organizations end. A data owner pays for a desired level of security and must get some compensation in case of any misbehavior committed by the CSP. On the other hand, the CSP needs a security from any false accusations that may be claimed by the owner to get dishonest compensations. In this paper, a cloud-based storage scheme is proposed that allows the data owner to benefit from the facilities offered by the CSP and enables indirect mutual trust between them.

Abstract: Subsoil investigation was conducted at Unyeada in Andoni Local Government Area, in the Niger Delta for the purpose of designing a suitable foundation for a water tank structure. Field and Laboratory investigations show that the topsoil is underlain by a Loose clayey sandy Layer (about 6m thick) with Phi < 280, overlying a soft clay with cu of about 12KN/m2. Underneath the soft clay is medium dense sandy layer with Phi between 300 and 320. The allowable bearing capacity profile of the sub-surface shows a minimum bearing Capacity of 79.8KN/m2. Settlement predictions based on a loading of 300KN/m2 indicated a settlement of 26mm. The bearing capacity analysis for the underlying soils is limited to the near surface sandy clay. In general, the sandy clay is partially saturated and when tested in unconsolidated and undrained conditions, exhibits both cohesion of 0.00kPa and angle of internal friction of 280for its shear strength characteristics. However, the frictional component of shear strength is neglected for the clay encountered within normal founding depths for shallow foundations when estimating ultimate bearing pressures for the clay. The placement of a Raft foundation on a compacted granular material is suggested for the water tank stand.

Abstract: This study is aimed to establish the pharmacological basis for the acclaimed antimalarial activities of the bark extracts of the three herbs. Aqueous extract of the herbs was obtained by cold maceration (72 hrs) while methanol herb extract was by soxhlet extraction. Phytochemical tests were carried out on the three herbs, the antiplasmodal activity of the aqueous extract of the herbs were screened by in-vivo model in mice infected with Plasmodium berghei using 4 days suppression test. The herb extracts were significant (p>0.05) but with varying levels of antiplasmodal activity, as Trema orientalis has the highest (85%) suppression activity followed by Morinda lucida (83%) and Alstonia soonei (80%). The phytochemical screening of the herb extracts revealed the presence of alkaloids, glycosides, proteins, flavonoids, steroids, terpenoids, saponins and tannin. The results suggest that the bark extracts of A. soonei, M. lucida and T.orientalis possess significant antimalarial activity.

Abstract: In this paper, I present a Smartphone-based autonomous management of Location. When developing a location-aware application for Android, one can utilize GPS and Androids Network Location Provider to acquire the user location. Androids Network Location Provider determines user location using cell tower and Wi-Fi signals, providing location information in a way that works indoors and outdoors, responds faster, and uses less battery power. To obtain the user location in your application, one can use both GPS and the Network Location Provider, or just one. Here one could track the positions of the Android Device constantly for 2/4hrs and save them on a well secured webpage. So that if a device is found to be in a prohibited area it can be easily traced out. Hence it is very useful for the military purposes. No unauthorized devices can enter or leave the area without notification to the server. It can also help to create a daily log of device i.e each and every location visited by the device in a day.

Abstract: The paper is divided into following sections namely, text password recognition, text-dependant speech recognition, face recognition. The first stage involves simple alphanumeric character recognition. Mel Frequency Cepstral Coefficients (MFCCs) are the most popularly used speech features in many speech and speaker recognition applications. Speaker identification can be Text-Independent or Text-Dependent. This paper describes an approach of Text-Dependent speaker recognition by using the MFC Coefficients extracted from speech signal of spoken words. The third stage comprises of face recognition for which the proposed method is based on the principle component analysis algorithm. The algorithm MFCC used in this project for speech recognition is the best. This is because it analysis the speech signal on the basis of the human perception of the sound i.e. in the Mel scale. The PCA algorithm is a simple algorithm. This algorithm is used to reduce the computational time of the overall project.

Abstract: Nanotechnology is an advancing field of research which has revolutionized all industrial needs, such as medical, environmental and other industrial applications. Despite the rapid progress and early acceptance of nanotechnology, the potential for adverse health effects due to prolonged exposure at various concentration levels in humans and the environment has not yet been studied. With the widespread application of nanomaterials, numerous nanoscale products might consequently be released into aquatic environments and elicit an impact not only on one particular ecosystem but also on human health. The environmental impact of nanomaterials is expected to increase dramatically in near future. Zinc oxide (ZnO) nanoparticles have wide ranging applications in a diverse array of industrial and consumer products, ceramic manufacturing, paint formulation, sunscreen and hair care products. Toxicological studies indicate that ZnO nanoparticles have adverse impacts on human health and environmental species. Hence it is due process to characterize the health and safety aspects of ZnO nanoparticles to humans and environment.
