Abstract: Reducing maternal mortality has been a constant struggle globally. Although developed regions have shown a steep decline in maternal deaths, developing world still continues to contribute inordinately to the total maternal deaths. The Millennium Development Goal (MDG) ‘five’ focused on reducing maternal mortality and achieving universal access to reproductive health care. In lieu of that, India has made extensive efforts to achieve the same, which are visible through the sharp increase in the rate of institutional births (NFHS 4), but the concurrent high incidences of maternal mortality present a contradictory picture of the nation’s progress in improving maternal health.

Abstract: Cacao swollen shoot virus (CSSV) remains a significant viral pathogen endemic in West African cacao-growing countries. Eradication of affected trees (complete removal) and resistance breeding in existing cacao (Theobroma cacao L.) germplasm have not yielded the expected results in terms of controlling the spread of CSSV. CSSV is reported to be vectored by at least 16 species of mealybugs (Hemiptera: Pseudococcidae), but there have been no molecular evidences to validate these reports. Inconsistent reports exit on CSSV transmission which were based on visual assessments of CSSV infection which are highly subjective, especially on asymptomatic cacao.

Abstract: Vegetable waste is one of the types of food waste that can contribute to leachate production. Different characteristics of leachate produce from a different type of waste. Leafy vegetables waste (LVW) has a high tendency to accumulate heavy metal, for example, Cadmium (Cd). Leachate produced from leafy vegetable waste should be treated specifically alone instead of mix with another type of food waste. Treatment of leachate by using conventional method is no longer suitable to comply with the more stringent discharge standards.

Abstract: The increasing of the population has enhanced the generation of waste in Malaysia, a country of which depends on landfill as a method to dispose of solid waste in which the leachate generation will play a major impact to the environment. Leachate can potentially contaminate the nearby surface water, groundwater and soil. In Malaysia, food waste is a major waste composition which can lead to the generation of leachate due to their high moisture content. Citrus fruit wastes classified as one of food waste which become a concern because of its potential to create environmental pollution. Leachate from citrus fruit is acidic, high BOD and COD, high turbidity, total suspended solids and high nutrient such as nitrogen and phosphorus. This characteristic may interfere the effectiveness of wastewater treatment. The method that can be implemented as citrus leachate treatment is membrane process. Membrane process had been proven their effectiveness and had been used in many applications. The previous membrane composition is used, but the suitability of citrus waste is needed to investigate. The MWCO of newly developed flat sheet membrane is determined to study the performance of the membrane in citrus fruit waste leachate treatment.

Abstract: Earth as a planet is known as the ‘blue planet’ because of the large capacity of stocks of water but only a small amount is easily available in accessible reserves of groundwater, lakes, rivers and the soil-water store. Water scarcity is becoming a widespread concern in many parts of the world because human usage is putting pressure on these limited water resources. The Agricultural sector is reported to be a major freshwater consumer globally and around 70% of the world’s freshwater withdrawal is for irrigation. This justifies the need to develop standard indicators to evaluate human demand on natural resources. This paper aims to summarize the approaches of water footprinting with focus on the approaches suitable to assess water consumption of agricultural activities.

Abstract: Social Media has become a very powerful tool for information exchange as it allows users to not only consume information but also share and discuss various aspects of their interest. Nevertheless, online social platforms are beset with hateful speech - content that expresses hatred for a person or group of people. Such content can frighten, intimidate, or silence platform users, and some of it can incite other users to commit violence. Furthermore, social media gives users the freedom to express their thoughts in text without following traditional language grammars, thereby making it difficult to mine social media for insights. Despite widespread recognition of the problems posed by social media content, reliable solutions even for detecting hateful speech are lacking. The main goal of this study is to develop a reliable tool for detection of hate tweets. This paper develops an approach for detecting and classifying hateful speech that uses content produced by self-identifying hateful communities from Twitter. Results from experiments showed Naive Bayes classifier achieved significantly better performance than existing methods in hate speech detection algorithms with precision, recall, and accuracy values of 58% ,62%,and67.47%,respectively.

Abstract: Aim: This study aims to examine the effect of radial maze size (number of locations) on learning and performance efficiency of rats, i.e., do rats economize their physical effort when exploring the bigger maze and to assess the effect of sequence of training , 8-arm after 24-arm maze versus 24-arm after 8-arm maze, on relative performance of each rat in the two mazes. Materials and method: 22 Albino rats of Wistar strain obtained from National Institute of Nutrition Hyderabad, India were divided into two groups and were trained in 8-arm maze following training in 24-arm and vice-versa. The performance of the two groups were compared after obtaining plateau phase from the 10 trial moving average of Reference memory error for locating the onset of plateau phase. Results : One group of rat which were trained in 24 arm maze followed by 8-arm maze shows decrease in percentage Reference memory error in 8-arm maze .i.e., 2nd maze(P-value=0.003). The other group which were trained in 8-arm maze followed by training in 24-arm maze shows decrease in percentage Reference memory error in 24-arm i.e.2nd maze (P value= 0.001). Conclusion: The present study shows that rats after being trained in one radial maze perform better in another radial maze as far as Reference memory error in fully trained stage is concerned. This shows that repeated training with allothetic cues improves the ability to perform a task irrespective of maze size .

Abstract: In this paper, a dynamic (i.e. self-adaptive according to the number of nodes) Simulated Annealing Algorithm is presented to solve the well-known Traveling Salesman Problem (TSP). In the presented algorithm, the temperature parameter is adjusted on the basis of the number of nodes. To achieve dynamicity, a new parameter named “Cooling Enhancer” is introduced to control the cooling rate, thereby, regulating the temperature. Additionally, an enhanced version of acceptance probability has been used. The efficacy of Dynamic Simulated Annealing with Cooling Enhancer & Modified Acceptance Probability (DSA-CE&MAP) is compared against the basic simulated annealing algorithm (SA) [2] for some benchmark TSPLIB instances [1]. Experimental results illustrate that the new dynamic simulated annealing algorithm performs better than the basic simulated annealing algorithm for solving TSP. It has been observed that the quality of solutions (i.e. minimum total cost or distance) is significantly increased as compared to earlier method.

Abstract: This basic principle of civilization is the result of a guaranteed option to protect the immunity of the innocent, even if the price is the impunity of any culprit. "It is enough for the social body to punish offenders in their entirety," wrote Lauze Peret, "but his great interest was that all innocent people, without exception, be protected. " It is this option on which Montesquieu established the link between freedom and security of citizens: "Political freedom consists in security, or at least in the belief that everyone has for their own security," and "this security is not placed at greater risk than under public or private accusation ", consequently, when the innocence of the citizens is not guaranteed, nor is their freedom to be.

Abstract: Black carbon (BC), an outcome of incomplete combustion of fossil fuel and biomass burning, has a global and regional influence on radiative forcing and a large effect on the environment and human health. Several studies concerning black carbon emissions and its impacts on climate, environment and human health, have been carried out, but only a few have considered ship emissions. However, it was reported that black carbon from ship emissions affected the climate, environment, as well as human health, particularly in the Arctic region and coastal areas. Therefore, the aim of this paper is to do a review on BC emissions from the ship. In achieving the objective of this study, several papers including articles, reports, and scientific assessments on black carbon emissions from the ship were reviewed and synthesized.

Abstract: Studies previously carried out on pure bending analysis of isotropic thin rectangular plate using total potential energy functional have mainly used second order (Ritz energy function) and fourth order (Galerkin and work error energy functional). The objective of this study is pure bending analysis of isotropic thin rectangular CCCC, CSCS, CSSS and SCCC plates. In this paper, third order energy functional is used for analysis. The Rayleigh Ritz energy method of direct variation approach for plate analysis is adopted. The third order energy functional method is derived from first principle by using equations and principles of theory of elasticity. Polynomial series is used to formulate the approximate shape functions for the plate with various boundary conditions. Direct variational calculus was applied on the third-order energy function to obtain the coefficient of deflection which was used to determine the stiffness component for the plates. The coefficients of deflection for CCCC, CSCS, CSSS and SCCC are obtained for various aspect ratios (ranging from 1.0 to 2.0 at the increment of 0.1). The various coefficient of deflection is used to obtain the deflection at the center of the plates. The central deflection of the various plate with aspect ratio (ranging from 1.0 to 2.0 at the increment of 0.1) from this studies were compared with the values of Szilard (2004) and Timoshenko and Krieger (1959). From the comparison, it was observed that the maximum percentage difference recorded for CCCC, CSCS and CSSS plates was 3.58, 4.91 and 1.79 respectively. While for SCCC there was no significant difference. These values of percentage differences are relatively small, which indicates that the method of this present study is considered adequate, satisfactory and reliable for analyzing pure bending isotropic thin rectangular plate.

Abstract: Internet of things has been increasing at a tremendous rate since last few years. Thus, it has been an active area of research. Data from a single node can provide enough information for various conditions on the field. However, the data from the IoT is used to get an inference on a high level which can be used to take corrective actions. To take the corrective actions, the data should be mined properly which in turn depends on correct data from the sensor. Data fusion techniques are used to provide correct data from the sensor to the data mining algorithm. Data fusion in IoT is not a well-researched topic. In this design, various data fusion techniques are examined, and a hierarchical approach for data fusion in IoT is proposed. The design uses Fuzzy Kalman Filter for state estimation, and Dempster- Shafer method for decision fusion to create a dynamic context-aware system. The proposed design is also scalable for a higher number of nodes in the network which is not found in all implementations. The research also offers a design metrics which can be used for comparison of different data fusion.

Abstract: Since the Industrial revolution in the World, there has been tremendous increase in the vulnerable activities of humankind to the climate and environment of our Planet. In particular, during the last 100 years, the astronomically fuel consumption in various technological and household utilities have aggregated devastating impacts on the environment, like global warning, ozone layer depletion, volatile weather etc. This resulted adverse effects on our climate, resulting it more erratic and volatile in various forms of disasters across the World. This paper discusses the effects of climate change on the flood disasters in India and World level. It also discusses my case study on the devastating flood in Kawas (Barmer) in the Thar Desert, which struck during August month of 2006, from the perspective of execution of Disaster Management. Though the case study is not linked directly to climate change aspect, however, the extreme weather in Kawas region during flood may be due to climate change. Therefore the presented case study is just aimed to show the indirect adverse effects of climate change in the form of Flash Flood in the desert area, which has led to great challenge for the people and the administration which are normally do not accustomed to Flash Flood.

Abstract: This paper deals with the numerical solutions of solving higher order Boundary Value Problems by Standard Collocation and Perturbed Collocation Methods. We mention the two collocation points as equally- spaced points with boundary points inclusive and equally-spaced points with boundary points non-inclusive. Also, we observed that the accuracy obtained by Perturbed Collocation Method was reasonable when compared with the exact solution. Numerical examples were given to illustrate the performance of the work.
