Abstract: Space Manufacturing is the production of materials in the outer space, away from the atmospheric and gravitational disturbances of earth. The space consists of complete vacuum and zero gravity that can be employed for carrying out various manufacturing processes with much ease and greater efficiency, which cannot be performed on earth. In past few decades, space researchers and astronauts have explored number of ways in which space environment can be utilized by the manufacturing industries to greater economic feasibility. This concept is still in its initial stages and currently many research and experiments are being carried out at the International Space Station (ISS). Current paper describes the process of extraction of minerals and manufacturing of products from available resources in space. Different potential products that can be obtained through space manufacturing are also elaborated. It has been concluded that feasibility of space manufacturing on large scale depends on the fact that how effectively challenges of cost capitalization will be reduced.

Abstract: The learning style is the manner in which a learner perceives, interacts with, and responds to the learning environment. Components of learning style are the cognitive, affective and physiological elements, all of which may be strongly influenced by a person's cultural background. A preference for learning in certain ways, eg through listening and conversation, or through formal explanation and written exercises. The way a person takes in, understands, expresses and remembers information; the way a person learns best. The channels- such as vision, hearing, movement, touching, or any combination of these-through which a person best understands and retains learning; also, temperament, as in an active or passive learning style or a reflective or impulsive. A preferential mode, through which a subject likes to master learning, solve problems, thinks or simply react in a pedagogical situation.

Abstract: Many conventional types of luting cement are available for the dental clinicians to choose and restore luting of ceramic crowns. But not all the available luting cements are ideal for all situations. All ceramic restorations do benefit from resin cements bonding to the tooth. Hence it necessitates comparing the bonding ability of different luting cements to ceramic and dentin. The main objective of this study was to compare and evaluate the shear bond strength of three different luting cements to both ceramic and dentin and then to evaluate the mode of bond failure by scanning electron microscopy

Abstract: Matobo district is renowned for a lot of rituals and taboos due to its association with the Njelele “sacred” shrine, which for a long time housed u Ngwali, the Ndebele spirit medium. Although the district lies within agro-ecological four which is characterised by erratic rainfall, the presence of well-managed wetlands has saved the local communities from the debilitating effects of droughts. The study sought to find out the role played by the rituals and taboos on wetland management in Matobo District. The study made use of a qualitative research method. Forty participants selected through random and snowball sampling methods were interviewed on the influence of the rituals and taboos on wetlands management. The majority of the participants 80% felt that rituals and taboos that are embedded in the indigenous knowledge systems of the Ndebele society, have contributed much in sustainable management of wetlands. Few of the participants (20)% felt that scientific methods should be used in the sustainable wetlands management. The study recommends that both the indigenous knowledge systems and the scientific methods be integrated for sustainable wetlands management systems that are able to sustain the livelihoods projects of the local communities.

Abstract: Image compression is required to reduce the number of bits needed to store or transmit images without any appreciable loss of information or quality. Image compression is of great importance in digital image processing because of its wide applications. In particular, the discrete cosine transform (DCT) is the basis for most image-coding standard. It represents an image as a sum of sinusoids of varying magnitudes and frequencies. DCT is often used in image compression applications since most of the visually significant information about the image is concentrated in just a few coefficients of the DCT. However, at low bit rates, there constructed images at the receiver end generally suffer from visually annoying block artifacts which is the boundaries between adjacent image blocks visible at low bit rates resulting from a coarse quantization. In this paper, a block effect reduction algorithm in DCT domain is proposed to reduce block artifacts as many as possible, while preserving edge information.

Abstract: There is a wide spread assumption that most people know their rights in Zimbabwean communities. This is evident when people are confronted with situations they perceive to be oppressive, it is not uncommon to hear them saying ‘You cannot do this to us, we know our rights very well’. Despite this clamoring about human rights, many violations occur with a lot of people failing to claim their rights. The purpose of this study was to investigate the perceptions of the Gokwe central community towards the causes of human rights violations in the area. The main focus was on how people react when their rights are violated.

Abstract: The paper deals with cost benefit analysis of a single unit (main unit) system model supported by a helping unit. Main unit has three possible modes – normal (N), partial failure (P) and total failure (F). Whereas the helping unit (protective unit) has two possible modes- normal (N) and total failure (F). The main unit can also work without the protective (helping) unit but with increased failure rate. The system is declared as failed when at least main unit is out of functioning. A single repairman is always available with the system to repair the failed main and protective (helping) unit. The failure and repair times of main unit and protective (helping) unit are taken as independent random variables of discrete nature having geometric distributions with different parameters.

Abstract: Leishmaniasis is a widely spread disease caused by protozoan parasites belonging to the genus Leishmania. The unique life cycle of this parasite has two main stages of existence, amastigote and promastigote. The non-infective amastigotes, found in the primary host (example: human) when taken up by certain species of sand fly (Phlebotomine) whilst ingesting the blood of the infected person, were transformed into promastigotes which is the infective form of the parasite and this process takes place in the mid-gut of the sandfly. One of specific proteins in the parasite’s genome in the transformation process, the adhesion protein gene was selected for this homology study.

Abstract: Global climate change is a change in the long-term weather patterns that characterize the regions of the world. The term "weather" refers to the short-term (daily) changes in temperature, wind, and/or precipitation of a region (Merritts et al. 1998). In the long run, the climatic change could affect agriculture in several ways such as quantity and quality of crops in terms of productivity, growth rates, photosynthesis and transpiration rates, moisture availability etc. Climate change is likely to directly impact food production across the globe. Increase in the mean seasonal temperature can reduce the duration of many crops and hence reduce the yield. In areas where temperatures are already close to the physiological maxima for crops, warming will impact yields more immediately (IPCC, 2007).

Abstract: Soil and land degradation is considered for slope land such as riverbank or streambank and lands of high forced water runoff and rainfall causes severe soil erosion is the concern of this work. The major cause of runaway unprotected soil particles due to the natural reasons, thus making uneven soil plain surfaces can be remedied by tree plantation or vegetation. A precision mirror-amplifier is designed for primarily sensing soil moisture and pH level to provide eventual environmental conditions needed for irrigation and fertilization for plants to grow healthy, which in turn reduces the soil erosion. Another special sensor designed and employed here that can monitor the degradation due to erosion and the system can determine the soil’s critical limits.

Abstract: Finding of hidden and previously unknown information in large collection of data is the process of data mining. Mining association rules is a very important model in data mining. Using association rules different type of regularities and patterns can be identified. In most of the previous approaches a single minimum support threshold value is used for all the items or itemsets. But all the items in an itemset do not behave in the same way. Some appear very frequently and some very rarely. Therefore the support requirements should vary with different items. In this paper, a simple algorithm based on the Apriori approach is proposed to find the large-itemsets and association rules under arithmetic mean constraint and with multiple minimum supports to overcome the above mentioned problem. The proposed algorithm is easy and efficient and it saves time by focusing only on necessary associations.

Abstract: Addition of highly electronegative Nitrogen to Indium Antimonide substantially reduces its band gap. Theoretically, it is expected that one percent of nitrogen should reduce the band gap by about 100meV. Thus by reduction in the bandgap, the resulting material will be suitable for ‘far infrared’ detection. Three bulk crystals of InSb:N were grown by vertical directional solidification technique. The grown ingots were found detached from the ampoule wall. The physical properties and microstructures are studied. The smooth appearance of the crystal, uniform diameter across the length and other studies confirm the excellent quality of the crystal. Wavelength dispersive spectroscopy (WDS) was carried out for compositional analysis. The analysis confirmed the successful incorporation of nitrogen in the compound. The graph of absorption vs. energy was plotted to study shift in energy band gap. The deviation in the shift to the smaller wavelength is attributed to high (~1018/cm3) carrier concentration. The corresponding Moss-Burstein shift in the energy gap is calculated. The calculated values of the energy band shift due to all effects are summed up and compared with the observed value.

Abstract: A field experiment was conducted at Woreta, Metema and Pawe of North West Ethiopia during the 2008/9 and 2009/10 cropping seasons. Sixteen upland rice genotypes including the standard check were evaluated with the objective of selecting stable and high-yielding, disease-resistant and early maturing varieties. The experiment was laid out in a randomized complete block design of three replications. Combined analysis of variance revealed significant variations in genotypes for most parameters except fertile tillers per plant. Mean squares due to the genotype × location × year interaction was significant for days to aturity, 1000-seed weight and grain yield (P<0.01). The highest grain yield of 3.5t ha-1 was recorded by G15, followed by G7 (3.34t ha-1). In AMMI analysis, variations due to environments accounted for 52.48% of the treatment sum of square (SS) while genotypes and genotype × environment interaction explained 12.06 % and 35.45% of SS, respectively. In GGE biplot, G15 and G7 respectively were the best genotypes in E1, E2, and E6. The Genotype G15 was relatively stable in grain yield across environments and it also showed relatively better resistance to major rice diseases. Hence, G15 could be recommended for cultivation by the farmers and this variety should be popularized in larger scale to make use of its merits.

Abstract: Peace and harmony have been sought by humanity ever since the dawn of civilization. And yet the whole of human history, from the very earliest times, is replete with wars and violent conflicts from the tribal right up to the international level. Communism, socialism, democracy, capitalism- all claimed the desire to establish peace, but all invariably waged war. Over last few years many incidents have occurred in which world is seen through a singular lens of ‘good’ and ‘evil’ and ‘us’ vs. ‘them’ beliefs. Violations of the universal right to practice religion are systematic and widespread all over the world. The politics in the name of religion has been seen as a major phenomenon and which has led to sectarian violence.

Abstract: Autism is a group of developmental disorders known as Pervasive Developmental Disorders (PDD). Pervasive developmental disorder is defined by the presence of abnormal and impaired development characterized as abnormal functioning in all three areas of social interaction, communication, restricted and repetitive behaviour, that manifests before the age of 3years. Autistic disorder is believed to occur at the rate of about 8 cases per 10000 children, with 4:1 ratio of males to females. An intensive early intervention is critical in maximizing outcomes for children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), and evidence suggests that the earlier the intervention, the better the outcome.

Abstract: This study presents experimental measurements of dielectric constant of dry and moist soils at C-band microwave frequency by using waveguide cell method. Soil samples were collected from four locations each from four different Indian states. An automated microwave set-up operating at 5.3 GHz frequency is used for this purpose. Measured values of dielectric constant are then used to estimate emissivity and scattering coefficient by using emissivity model and perturbation model respectively. Emission and scattering properties for soils are then studied as function of gravimetric Moisture Content (MC, %), polarization and incidence angle. At constant value of MC, emissivity of soil is found to increase with increase in the incident angle for vertical polarization, and this increase continues up to Brewster’s angle and beyond this, emissivity decreases sharply.

Abstract: In the present research work, studies on correlation factors of electrical conductivity of soils in India with their physical properties like texture, bulk density and porosity were reported. We collected 29 soil samples from different locations of Karnatakta, Tamilnadu, Uttarakhand and Madhya Pradesh states of India. Soil samples were analyzed for physical parameters. Statistical correlations were obtained between electrical conductivity and different parameters of soil samples. Our results show significant correlations between electrical conductivity and physical parameters of soils. Besides agricultural applications, such studies may find importance in better understanding of soil physics and also for analyzing the satellite data in remote sensing.

Abstract: Presently the surveillance of International border areas is very daunting task. The security forces are patrolling the border in hostile conditions. They are getting help from surveillance cameras already mounted but they cover very limited areas. The cameras already mounted at a fixed position, is not of much use as we cannot change the camera view in real time. Also it is not possible to mount the cameras in the forest areas as the trees obstruct the view of the camera. This paper explains how to design and implement wireless robot which will enable us to control the robot with the help of internet and it will be able to detect the living bodies with the help of PIR sensor. It will help in rescue operation and user can access the video transmitted from the remote area such as the sensitive areas or areas which are beyond our reach. The total system contains mobile robot, controlled with the Internet, which has camera mounted on it and also it has a PIR sensor for detection of living bodies. User will be able to control the robot through internet, thus, providing user with wireless control of robot. Also information regarding the detection of living bodies will also be given to user on the webpage from the PIR sensor and simultaneously user is able access the video transmission from the robot. The camera mounted on the robot is able to move horizontally around its vertical axis and vertically along its vertical axis. Camera movement is controlled through webpage at the user interface, thus, providing user with enhanced view of the surroundings.

Abstract: Microbial infections are now a day’s more common than during the first half of the century. Although, a number of different classes of antibacterial and antifungal agents have been discovered during last two decades the use is limited due to development of microbial resistance. This situation highlights the need for development of novel, potent, and safe antimicrobial agents. Hence the synthesized aza-macrocyclic metal complexes by in situ one pot template condensation reactions were further confirmed by thermal analysis, UV–vis spectroscopy and molar conductivity measurements. The antimicrobial activity of the complexes has been screened in vitro against bacteria and fungi to access their inhibiting potential. The bioassays indicated that most of the synthesized metal complexes showed potential antibacterial and anti-fungal activity.

Abstract: The effect of electromagnetic radiation on human health is the subject of recent interest and study. ICNIRP (International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection) study has concluded that the exposure levels due to cell phone base stations are generally around one-ten-thousandth of the guideline levels. Moreover, the WHO has classified mobile phone radiation on the IARC (International Agency for Research on Cancer) scale into Group 2B–possibly carcinogenic to humans. It means that there could be some risk. On the other hand, telecom service providers are worried about QoS (quality of service) of mobile services about implementation of stricter norms regarding cell tower radiations. Therefore an exercise was done to measure cell tower radiations at various places of dense urban regions, in the context of QoS measurement at these places.

Abstract: A data distributor has given sensitive data to a set of supposedly trusted agents (third parties). Some of the data are leaked and found in an unauthorized place (e.g., on the web or somebody’s laptop). We propose data allocation strategies that improve the probability of identifying leakages. In Image and Video we can apply watermarking for detecting guilty agent. All the data will be stored on the cloud so Reliable Re-encryption in unreliable clouds technique is used. In this data owner store encrypted data in the cloud, and issue decryption keys to authorized users. When a user is revoked, the data owner will issue re-encryption commands to the cloud to re-encrypt the data, to prevent the revoked user from decrypting the data, and to generate new decryption keys to valid users, so that they can continue to access the data.

Abstract: Scrofuloderma is a common type of cutaneous tuberculosis characterized by a bluish-red nodule overlying an infected lymph gland, bone or joint that breaks down to form an undermined ulcer with a granulating tissue at the base. Progression of the disease leads to irregular adherent masses, densely fibrous at some places while fluctuant and discharging at others. It heals with a characteristic puckered scarring at the site of infection. The disease is caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Very few pediatric patients with scrofuloderma have been reported. Here we describe a case of scrofuloderma with spine and pulmonary involvement in a 11 year old child which has been rarely described in literature.

Abstract: Mining of gold from sand and rocks is referred to as gold mining rather than sand or rock mining. Thus data mining is nothing but the ‘knowledge mining’ from the data. Data mining techniques extract knowledge from large amount of data about a system. This knowledge can be used for taking various strategic decisions as well as finding the solutions towards the betterment of the system. The education system of a nation influences progressive nation building. It plays a vital role in the personal growth of a student and the social development among all. In this paper we have discussed various data mining techniques which can be used to improve the academic performance of the students. The main objective of higher education institutions is to provide quality education to their students. With the help of some data mining techniques like Association Rules, Classification, and KDD (Knowledge Discovery in Database), the institutes can evaluate the student performance and overcome the problems of low grades. The data required for this evaluation is hidden in huge educational databases. Data mining techniques not only abstract this data but also make predictions about student’s performance and suggest remedies depending upon the performance.

Abstract: The wireless communication, like Wi-Fi, is insecure and is vulnerable to attacks like packet sniffing. The login credentials in HTTP packets can be extracted from the IEEE 802.11 packets using tools like Wire-shark and can be misused by the attackers. This puts the whole data and the system into risks. The main goal of this paper is to show that packet sniffing can be avoided by ‘SSH tunneling’. The concept of SSH tunneling can actually be a good defensive mechanism against the packet sniffing attacks and can also make the communication over wireless networks secured. Also, why SSH tunneling is beneficial has been justified.

Abstract: Chronic periodontitis although a common disorder in adults, is found associated with a number of systemic conditions like diabetes mellitus, atherosclerosis, coronary heart disease- CHD and certain chronic inflammatory disorders including rheumatoid arthritis. Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) and Chronic Periodontitis-CP share certain common features like both being chronic inflammatory disease associated with bone loss and destruction of the soft tissue surrounding the bone ultimately leading to loss of function. Etiopathologically both are initiated by some pathogens like bacteria and believe to be further mediated by host immune-inflammatory dysregulation. Elevated levels of pro-inflammatory cytokines leading to bone resorption is reported in both conditions. Resolving periodontal infection seems to have positive effect on the treatment of RA. Both respond to certain drugs like NSAIDS and tetracyclines.

Abstract: Man is a rational animal. He can think for himself and also for others. He can distinguish good from bad with the help of his reason. All other animals except human beings lead their lives by instinct and that is why they fail to distinguish good and bad. With the help of reason men built up the civilization, scientific discoveries and so on. But in spite of all these human beings are more cruel than other animals. When his rationality is undermined and animality dominates he can go in any length and that is why there are different laws such as, legal laws, moral laws and some other laws which restrict man and help to refrain from doing cruel activities. Above all there are religious fears which also play a great role in the society to keep human beings in their right track.

Abstract: The Akanfa–Gbaran Road traverses sections of the geomorphic meander belt and crosses the Epie Creek, near Yenegoa, Bayelsa State capital. Road construction in this area is usually at exceptionally high cost because of the challenging geologic, geomorphic and environmental setting of the Niger delta. Using a combination of geotechnical borings and Cone penetration soundings, the subgrade underlying the road was characterized, providing litho-stratigraphic, shear strength, bearing capacity, settlement and axial pile capacity data for the area. Results show that competent bearing soil layers occur at shallow depths and only the top 1.5m of the subgrade need be improved for effective pavement performance. Predicted axial pile capacities for a range of closed ended, steel tubular pile diameters 300mm, 450mm and 600mm show that pile embedment need not exceed 15m except for considerations of scour.

Abstract: Colle’s fracture is a very common extra-articular fracture that occurs as the result of a fall on out stretched hand (FOOSH). Although Colle’s fractures are commonly seen in all age groups and demographics, they are particularly common in osteoporotic individuals and as such are more frequently seen in elderly women. Some complications are associated with injury itself. The complications such as persistent neuropathy of median nerve, ulnar nerve or radial nerve, mal-united fracture and post traumatic stiffness have been reported in 1 out of 3 patients. Rehabilitation of fractures is a very important thing because of the limitations produced by improper management can lead to stiffness, deformity and limitation of functions.

Abstract: Mobile Ad-hoc Network is a volatile infrastructure network. It is dynamic in nature i.e. it consists of movable nodes. Due to its changing topology it tends to get attacked by unauthorized access. Among various attacks routing attack is the one which causes severe damage to the network infrastructure. There exist a number of techniques and methodologies to overcome this problem but almost all these techniques concentrates on isolating the node at the instant it is being attacked which further ruins the network. In this paper, a filtering technique is proposed to reduce the permanent isolation of nodes.

Abstract: This study investigated first year first semester Psychology students’(2013) perceptions of the relevance of identity related domains at Great Zimbabwe University (Poly campus , Masvingo) (N=350). For this purpose a structured questionnaire consisting of 14 domain specific items was adapted from earlier studies by Alberts, Mbalo and Ackerman studies (2003). The study replicates Chimunhu (2011) study at University of Fort Hare. Most of the domains were regarded as overwhelmingly relevant by the respondents. My career was highly regarded at 93% “Very important” by the respondents whilst Friendship with members of the opposite sex was regarded of least importance by 47 % of the respondents. Gender and age variables are likely to affect Adolescents differently at different phases in this stage of identity development.

Abstract: Workload balancing in the cloud computing environment has an important impact on the performance. Good workload balancing makes cloud computing more efficient and improves user satisfaction. This paper introduces a better workload balance model for the public cloud based on the cloud partitioning concept with a switch mechanism to choose different strategies for different situations. When the nodes are at idle status dynamic round robin algorithm is used.when the nodes are in normal status the algorithm which applies the game theory to the workload balancing strategy is used to improve the efficiency in the public cloud environment. A game theoretic frame work for obtaining a user optimal workload balancing scheme as been presented for non-cooperative game the structure of Nash equilibrium is used to select appropriate nodes to balance the workload The goal of cloud based architecture is to provide elasticity and ability to expand capacity on-demand. The workload balancing feature efficiently reduces the waiting time at each process steps.

Abstract: Available information is expanding day by day and this availability makes access and proper organization to the archives critical for efficient use of information. People generally rely on information retrieval (IR) system to get the desired result. In such a case, it is the duty of the service provider to provide relevant, proper and quality information to the user against the query submitted to the IR System. With time, many old techniques have been modified, and many new techniques are developing to do effective retrieval over large collections. This paper is concerned with the analysis and comparison of various available page ranking algorithms based on the various parameters to find out their advantages and limitations in ranking the pages. This paper proposed a new page ranking system that will combine the old tf/idf weight and a new document-context-weight to find the rank of the documents.

Abstract: Control methodologies could achieve better comfort conditions of heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) systems, however, the application of classical controllers is unsatisfactory as HVAC systems are non-linear and the control variables such as temperature and relative humidity (RH) inside the thermal zone are coupled. The objective of this study is to implement and simulate adaptive control for decoupled HVAC to control temperature and RH. A non-linear decoupling algorithm is used to decouple the HVAC system and an adaptive controller is applied to control the temperature and RH, and improve the transient response of system. The simulation results show that the adaptive controller performance is superior, as compared with classical PID controller. In addition, the steady state set points for temperature and RH are better reached in a shorter period of time.

Abstract: A method to monitoring the torque and efficiency in induction motor in real time by employing wireless sensor networks (WSNs). In Industries most of the mechanical works are done by motors among them 90% are induction motors. A controller unit (stellaries) is employed for acquiring electrical signals from the motor in a non invasive manner, and then performing local processing for torque and efficiency estimation. These values are calculated by the controller unit which are transmitted to a monitoring unit through a WiFi based WSN. At the base unit, various motors can be monitored in real time.

Abstract: Cloud computing is the computing technology that involves a large number of computers connected through a communication network such as internet, similar to utility computing and distributed computing. It has ability to run a program or application on many connected computers at the same time. Searchable symmetric encryption (SSE) allows retrieval of encrypted data over cloud. Basically focus on addressing data privacy issues using searchable symmetric encryption (SSE). To eliminate the leakage, two-round searchable encryption (TRSE) scheme that supports top-k multi-keyword retrieval along with it propose a log file generation module. The efficiency of the system is enhanced by making retrieval of data in more secured and efficient manner. The vector space model helps to provide sufficient search accuracy, and the homomorphic encryption enables users to involve in the ranking while the majority of computing work is done on the server side by operations only on ciphertext. As a result, information leakage can be eliminated and data security is ensured. Thorough security and performance analysis show that the proposed scheme guarantees high security and practical efficiency.

Abstract: Laboratory experiment was conducted in Microbiology Laboratory of School of Science and Science Technology, Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University, Bauchi, Nigeria, to determine the antifugal effect of some plant extracts at different concentration to control tomato fruit rot via both invitro and invivo approaches. The aqueous moringa, Lantana, garlic and pawpaw each with two varying concentrations (40 and 60g/l) were evaluated along with carbendazin for comparison and untreated tomatoes serving as control against Aspergillus flavus. The treatments were laid in a Completely Randomized Design (CRD) with three replications. The results showed a promising antifungal activity of the crude extracts of these plants against A. flavous. Among the various plant extracts with varying concentrations, aqueous extracts of pawpaw (40 and 60g/l) was found to have more significance (P< 0.01) inhibitory effect on radial growth of A. flavus both invitro (0.30 and 0.24cm and invivo 0.77 and 0.71) better than other extracts and is comparable to carbendazim. On the other hand, lantana, garlic and moringa at 40 and 60g/l reduced radial growth of A. flavus better than the control. This finding proved the potentiality of plant extracts for the control of post harvest and transit fungal rot of tomato fruit and could be applied to control fungal fruit rot of tomato in both storage and on transit.
