Abstract: This review focuses on two systems, nanocrystalline Zn substituted Co1-xZnxFe2O4 (0≤x≥1) and Ni0.4Zn0.2Mn0.4Fe2O4, were synthesized using microwave hydrothermal and auto-combustion method respectively. The synthesized powders were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), transmission electron microscope (TEM), thermo-gravimetric-differential thermal analysis (TG-DTA) and FTIR. The average particle size was obtained from TEM and it is found to be 17 nm. Zero field cooled (ZFC) and Field cooled (FC) measurements for Co1-xZnxFe2O4 reveal that samples with 0.6≤x≥1 have superparamagentic behavior at room temperature, which confirms weak interaction between magnetic particles.

Abstract: Dutch colonization to Indonesian occurred for about 350 years. During this time, a lot of colonial buildings were built in Indonesia with various typologies and architectures which were developed in the era. It was the shape and typology of the building which was similar to the buildings in Netherland (17th century) or Europe and the architecture which was developed and influenced by modern architecture (20th century) that are developing in all over the world. In the early 20th century, Dutch architects started to work in big cities in Indonesia such as Jakarta, Surabaya, Bandung, Semarang, Medan, etc.

Abstract: This study investigates the utility of artificial neural networks (ANNs) for estimation of daily grass reference crop evapotranspiration (ETo) and compares the performance of ANNs with the conventional method (Penman–Monteith) used to estimate ETo. Several issues associated with the use of ANNs are examined, including different learning methods, number of processing elements in the hidden layer(s), and the number of hidden layers. The input parameters and the ANN model architecture was decided based on use of MARS tool and trial and error approach leading to optimal error statistics. Different ANN architectures namely BPNN, RBFNN and GRNN were used. Model performance show that BPNN architecture suits for prediction of reference crop evapotranspiration and can be used for future scenario in the Ameleke watershed.

Abstract: Women’s empowerment direct indicator and its relationship to child health outcomes have been investigated using a sample of 22,462 under five years’ children in Nigeria and 45,516 India. The data used in the study was obtained from the 2008 Nigerian Demographic and Health Survey (NDHS) as well as the third round of National Family and Health Survey NFHS-3 India. Women’s empowerment in both study areas were examined through women’s decision-making autonomy in the household. In relation to this further, we examined the determinants of child health using two important indicators, viz: Child’s immunization status and child’s nutritional status (stunting status). The influence of women’s decision-making autonomy on the child health practices appears to be paramount for every child’s well-being and for their healthy growth and development. In this study, women’s empowerment major indicator was used as the independent variable, while the indicators of child health status as dependent variables. Descriptive and multivariate statistics were employed in order to establish a relationship between of women’s empowerment indicator and child health outcomes. Alongside with these measures of empowerment and child health status, we equally considered their relationship with some of the socio economic and background characteristics of women, men and children. The results obtained in the study revealed that there is a strong and positive influence of the active participation of women in making decisions in the household on their children’s health status.

Abstract: Population explosion, high urbanization and improved living standards have induced rapid changes in quantities and material compositions of solid waste generation globally. Until recently solid waste disposal in landfills and open dump sites was considered more economical and it is the most widely used methods in developing countries. Hence the potentials in the other alternative methods such as the resource recovery and recycling and their integration into waste management have been scarcely assessed. However, the ever growing challenges posed by the rapidly increasing quantities and compositions of solid wastes in developing countries led to the searching for alternative waste disposal methods. In this regard the paper presented an assessment of the resource potentials of municipal solid waste materials arising from cities in developing countries as a strategy for sustainable solid waste management. Using published data on solid waste composition the paper has identified that there is high potentials of composting in the solid waste stream from cities in developing countries. In conclusion, it recommended the recovery of organic waste material and papers for composting and the recycling of plastic, metals, textiles and others to explore their resource recovery potentials. This will largely reduce the ultimate quantities of solid waste for disposal and lower the operating costs. This strategy will achieve sustainable waste management in developing countries. It is hoped that the paper has provided a useful guide for wastes management policy decisions in developing countries.

Abstract: The Dye Sensitized Solar Cell (DSSCs) has emerged as attractive and promising solar cells in recent years. It offers technically and economically viable option to p-n junction solar cells. However, the efficiencies of DSSCs could not compete with those of silicon solar cells. Numerous researches have been done to enhance the efficiencies of these cells over the past decades. Efficiencies up to 15 % have been achieved by adopting new techniques in the research area. There are good prospects for further improvement in the photo conversion efficiencies and commercial applications of DSSCs through new parameters and methodology. In this review paper, the current state and recent developments in the field of photo electrode, photo sensitizer and electrolyte for dye sensitized solar cells have been reviewed. Also the perspectives for the future development of the technology have been discussed.

Abstract: The purpose of this study was to analyze the role of gender on employees’ emotional intelligence and the relationship between the levels of emotional intelligence (EI) and the degree of organizational commitment (OC). The recruitment and selection of employees is both a time consuming and expensive process. Knowing the characteristics that are most relevant to test in order to select employees who are likely to have high organizational commitment may reduce turnover as well as the expense of ongoing recruitment. Data collected was based on a sample of 105 currently employed adults residing in the United States, out of which 74 were females and 31 males. Of these participants, the average age for women was of 34.82 and 37.73 for men, while the predominant ethnic backgrounds in the sample was Hispanic and White/Caucasian. Participants were selected using convenient sample and data was collected using two alternative means, a paper and pencil copy of the survey and an online copy of the survey. According to the data collected for the following study, no significant difference was found between males and females’ levels of EI. The average level of EI for females was of 161.32 while the average level of EI for males was of 158.61. However, data did support the second hypothesis of a positive correlation between emotional intelligence and organizational commitment (r= 0.50, df=103, alpha level=0.05, one-tailed test, rcritical=0.164).

Abstract: Weathering indices of meta-igneous rocks was qualitatively employed to decipher groundwater potentiality in Ekiti-State. Five representative samples of weathered migmatite, granite and charnockite were analysed for major and trace elements using X-Ray Fluorescence Spectrometry Analytical methods. Temperature (oC), EC (µS/cm), pH and wells static water levels/depths were measured using Multi-parameter TestrTm 35 series Meter and dip meter respectively. Ruxton ratio (RR), Chemical Index of Alteration (CIA), Chemical Index of Weathering (CIW) and Plagioclase Index of Alteration (PIA) were estimated from the chemical data. The weathering indices revealed granitic terrain with average values of RR (3.04), CIA (93.14%), CIW (98.29%) and PIA (98.19%) as the most favourable for groundwater occurrence. Migmatite with average values of RR (3.61), CIA (86.51%), CIW (91.01%) and PIA (90.45%) ranked second while charnockite with mean values of RR (3.30), CIA (84.70%), CIW (88.84%) and PIA (88.25%) was least favourable. The RR values fell in the moderately weathered profile while CIA, CIW and PIA have values greater than >50% which signified intense tropical weathering. This observation agreed with existing boreholes records in the area with average yields of 105.75m3/day, 70.21m3/day and 67.16m3/day in granite, migmatite and charnockitic terrains respectively.

Abstract: The Manganese (II) complex of 2-Amino-4-(4-methoxyphenyl)-5, 6, 7, 8-tetrahydro-7, 7-dimethyl-5-oxochromene-3-carbonitrile (AMC) was synthesized. The organic ligand AMC was previously synthesized using an environment friendly method using microwave irradiation. The Manganese complex MnIIAMC was characterized by different tools such as IR, electronic spectroscopy, elemental analysis, Thermal analysis and mass spectroscopy. The mode of metal binding shows that the Manganese binds to the ligand through the nitrogen atoms of the amino and cyanide groups. The Manganese complex MnIIAMC was used in the homogenous oxidation of the polyphenol 1,2,3-trihydroxybenzene in presence of the green oxidant H2O2 to produce a first-order rate constant kcat= 6.3×10-3s-1. The catalysis shows catalytic efficiency of 2.49 × 103 times compared to the autooxidation of THB.

Abstract: Caffeine, available in plant’s kingdom worldwide, has remarkable insecticidal, weedicide, beverage and medicinal values, along with a few fatal actions to humanity if uptake is beyond limit. For healthy cause, it’s reckoning at trace level in local drinks and pharmaceutical of routine use has become vital. An environment friendly chemically modified carbon paste sensor has been fabricated. Square wave voltammetry technique has been deployed to carry the present investigations in procured real samples of routine use medicines and local drinks in Mekelle city. Experimental conditions and square wave parameters have been optimized with prepared sensor for anodic oxidation of caffeine in buffer. The peak signal observed two-fold upswing in presence of this sensor as compared to unmodified sensor. Adequate catalytic activity of anthraquinone and irreversible nature of oxidation process at the interface has been observed. The perceived effect of analyte concentration on both signals i.e. peak current and peak potential exposed mainly the diffusion controlled mechanism at interface, besides some interfering surface processes at high caffeine concentrations. The peak current and caffeine concentration observed linear dependence in low range 0.00 – 100 μM with correlation coefficient ‘R’ = 0.9999 (n = 10) and standard deviation ‘σ’ = 0.0596. The observed regression equation is “Ip(μA) = 34.465 + 1.282C(μM)” with the detection limit of 0.1395 μM. Caffeine quantification conducted in local available drinks and medications by using standard addition/spiked method have yielded very good recovery. An electro-oxidation process of caffeine at the interface received resilient catalytic action of modifier. Excellent recovery of caffeine’s spiked samples of drugs and local drinks represent an inordinate potential of sensor for its prompt quantification in real samples.

Abstract: This study is an attempt to find out the coping strategy of stress in employed women and non employed women who was 25 to 40 yrs age group. Nowadays lifestyle is very change and stress level also increases day to day life. Stress affects the physical activity. When body affects by stress that time mind is also affect and its true sound mind resides in sound body. There are two major targets of coping: changing ourselves or changing our environment. The study was conducted on 60 women, 30 were employed women as different profession and other 30 were non-employed women. For assessment brief COPE Scale used which was developed by Carver, Scheier, and Weintraub. The brief COPE Scale is a 28-item self report measure of problem-focused versus emotion-focused coping skills. t value was computed to analyze data. It is observed that employed women are more used technique of self distraction, instrumental support, behavioral disengagement, venting and positive reframing in comparison to non -employed women for coping strategies of stress.

Abstract: The effect of aqueous extract of leaf, stem and root of Imperata cylindrica and Chromolaena odorata at concentrations of 0, 5, 10 and 15% on germination and seedling growth of Centrosema pubescens were investigated. The experimental design used was completely randomized design with three replications. Results of the study showed that plant species, plant parts and their concentration had a significant effect (P < 0.05) on parameters measured. Aqueous extracts of both plants at all concentration levels inhibited germination percentage, germination rate, shoot and root growth of Centrosema pubescen and these effects were directly proportional to the concentration of extract. Chromolaena odorata extract was more inhibitory than Imperata cylindrica extract and the leaf extracts showed the most inhibitory effect.. Root growth of Centrosema pubescens was more sensitive to allelopathic effects of both test plants than on shoot growth. These results suggested that potential allelopathic substances produced by both plant species may hinder the success of introduction of C. pubescens into grassland invaded by the two weeds. Further studies need to be conducted to investigate their allelopathic behavior under field conditions against their associated species and mechanism of inhibition involved.

Abstract: The World Wide Web is the emerging field available to users to access the contents of the web. This field is parted into two. They are surface web and deep web. The surface web refers to the static and is linked with other pages whereas deep web refers to the web page that is not indexed by the general search engine. The extraction of contents from web pages arise the problem of web page programming language independent. This problem is arising because of the underlying complex structure of the web pages. The extraction of deep web contents from the deep web pages involves both the data record extraction and data item extraction. To evaluate the performance of the extraction process, the method revision is used. To overcome this problem, to build a website application like online forum, which provide location base information in the particular city and user will get all information of his/her interest under one website and need not visit various websites and waste time.

Abstract: My article tries to reshape a new moderate Islamic reason and multicultural Islamic behavior. Furthermore, it aims to re-discover the moderate reason in contemporary Islamic thought. It indicates that the main source of Islamic moderation is the religion of Islam itself. However, it is necessary to say that there is a deep difference between Islam as a religion and Islamic thought as a human phenomenon. Therefore, it confirms that it is easily to find the moderate reason in Islamic thought. In order to activate the curriculum of moderation in contemporary Islamic thought and behaviour, I have indicated that Islamic thought confirms that love is the essential element of being; forgiveness is perfection and tolerance is generosity.

Abstract: Expressed emotion (EE) is especially relevant in the Indian cultural context, where patients have longer and more enduring contact with family members, who play an important role as caregivers during the process of treatment & rehabilitation. A cross sectional case control study was carried out to study the relationship between EE and relapse of alcohol use. Participants included 60 participants, comprising of 30 cases and 30 controls. Tools used were FEICS, and additional questionnaires for assessment of alcohol use pattern and socio-demographic data. High expressed emotion and high perceived criticism in the family environment were found to be significantly associated with shorter period of abstinence and more frequent relapses. However, no significant correlation was found between high emotional involvement and relapse, which could perhaps be explained by the influence of cultural factors.Early identification and development of strategies targeting EE could help maintain recovery and prevent relapse.

Abstract: Besides the basic needs- food, clothing and shelter, plants have served mankind by providing medicines to fight against different ailments. Traditional healing systems using various plant species play an important role in maintaining the physical and psychological well being of the vast majority of tribal people in India. Tribal communities living in remote hamlets of the country are still dependent on the traditional systems of medicines for their primary health care rather than the allopathic medicines. The present study focuses on the medicinal and aromatic plants traditionally used to health care and cooking purposes by the Singphoos particularly confined to Tinsukia district of Assam emphasizing on documentation and preservation of these plants through participatory rural appraisal exercise and interview .Indeed, the Singphoos are renowned for their consumption of wild aromatic leafy vegetables in their routine diet which have potent medicinal value.

Abstract: Corky tissue of sapota cv.Cricket Ball (Manilkara achras) is a major physiological disorder distinguished by the occurrence of starchy lumps coupled with lower sugar levels in ripening pulp. Since sugar content of pulp is one of the major determinants of sapota fruit quality, a reduction in sugar level in CT fruit coupled with the buildup of starch unfavorably impacts fruit quality. In view of this, the present study was carried out with the objective of determining the possible reasons for the disturbance in starch metabolism in corky tissue affected fruits of sapota. Changes in the activities of starch hydrolyzing enzymes, sugar and starch contents, and tissue concentrations of Zn and P in healthy, apparently healthy and CT affected fruit tissues were measured to assess the potential interrelationships among them. Results indicated that the activities of starch phosphorylase and α-amylase enzymes in CT pulp were significantly lower (P≤0.005) compared to AH and healthy pulp.

Abstract: Virtual reality is simulated reality. Computers introduced us to the virtual world. In the virtual world one can assume any identity and no one will be the wiser. Such identities are called ‘avatars’. This is part of its attraction. But it also has its dangers. Many youngsters today live more in the virtual world than in the real world. This has made sociopaths out of some of them. They are so used to interacting with people in the virtual world that they no longer know how to interact with real people. Virtual worlds like Second Life are becoming important tools for, among other activities, socialization, social networking, entertainment, collaboration, and business development. These environments offer information systems researchers a unique opportunity to study how these environments are built and managed by operators, how they are used and misused by users, and the impact that they have on users, communities, organizations, and societies at large. The paper provides an introduction to this topic and offers a survey on virtual worlds based on insights offered by several academics and practitioners who are actively involved in building, managing, and using virtual worlds.

Abstract: In the 21st century, with more use of internet there has been significant increase in various attacks on the network. Here we describe the technique of how can a secrete communication take place between two or more parties secretly. In this paper the technique of cryptography and Steganography are used all together for to achieve message confidentiality. In cryptography, message gets encrypted and in Steganography, it gets embedded within the selected image. For that, we first substitute the original message by using the fourteen square substitution algorithm. After the substitution of text, we then encrypt this text message using RSA algorithm. The encrypted message is then hidden within image by Least Significant Bit (LSB) method. This image works as a carrier file and is sent to the receiver. At the receivers end, same operations are performed to decrypt the original message in reverse order. It is found that here we are using the double ciphering techniques which makes the system very robust and secures it from known hacking attacks. It makes very difficult for the intruders to hack the image and then decrypt the message in a feasible amount of time thus securing it from many known network attacks.

Abstract: Community participation has been widely accepted as one of the goals and principles of sustainable tourism. However, if community participation is seen as control over resources without understanding and implementing sustainable principles, sustainable tourism remains conceptual. Hence, frameworks are required to enhance active participation by community. Qualitative approach has guided the researcher in understanding sustainable tourism in Makassar city, Indonesia. Data were collected in 2011 which were then updated until December 2014. Interviews to different stakeholders and observation have enriched information about the research area. This article provides insights on how to encourage community participation in tourism through creating and implementing three interrelated frameworks including institutional, tourism-resources-based and stakeholder frameworks. The frameworks provide the opportunity to achieve sustainable tourism.

Abstract: The Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are energy constraint as the nodes of WSN run by the batteries. Energy consumption of a node is higher when it operates as a Cluster Head (CH) or located far from the Base Station (BS). In non-cluster based WSN the nodes close to the BS consume less power and live longer life unlike the cluster based WSN where nodes in the distant cluster lives longer time. In both the methods network performance and coverage degrades overtime as nodes have uneven lifetime. Energy consumption optimization is required to synchronize the lifetime of the nodes with the whole network lifetime. In this paper we propose a network load and resources balancing algorithm to optimize energy consumption for a homogeneous WSN. The algorithm is run by the BS before the network starts its operation. Depending on the GPS position, battery energy and energy consumption rate per unit of data to be processed by each node, the BS prepares and broadcast the schedule of the nodes’ activity as a CH or child. Node operations are synchronized by their clocks. Simulation result shows that in this method, the nodes operate together for full network lifetime. This indicates optimum utilization of the WSN’s usable energy.

Abstract: The promotion of Energy efficiency in buildings has gained prominence worldwide as a result of several issues ranging from high level energy demand for buildings to high cost of the energy at construction and post-construction stages. There exist a serious concern regarding problems of energy supply and consumption. Studies have shown that buildings approximately use 39% of the total energy consumed globally. In view of this environmental issue, increasing cost of energy and the current economic challenges; building energy efficiency is a key component of sound public policy. It is evident that preaching energy efficiency through incentives and disincentives alone may not be the only solution to these environmental challenges. A radical approach need to be employed through provision of rules and regulations in the form of codes to reduce the effect of these monumental environmental problems in developing countries most of which are in the tropics. This paper seeks to highlight several public policy efforts made locally and internationally on the ways to militate against this menace. It illustrates the role of government in setting and enforcing energy codes and standards. The study suggests strategies towards effective energy code development, implementation and compliance at all levels of government in Nigeria and concludes with recommendations on how best to achieve the said goals.

Abstract: Whitefly (Bemisia tabaci Genn.) is a widely distributed and highly harmful plant pest species. The management of B. tabaci has been typically carried out by chemical pesticides. In the last decade however, there has been an increasing interest in natural products, particularly those of plant origin, to control this pest species. In the present work, aqueous extract of Couroupita guianensis plant was evaluated for insecticidal activity against eggs, nymphs and adults of Bemisia tabaci, on tomato plant grown in the greenhouse condition. In a separate experiment, C. guianensis extract treatment was tested for repellency. The aqueous extract showed low insecticidal effects on B. tabaci eggs. However, nymphs and adults were more sensitive towards C. guianensis treatment. The C. guianensis extract reduced the survival rate of B. tabaci by 19.2%, 29.2% and 35.34% after treatment of eggs, nymphs and adults, respectively. Overall, results suggest that the aqueous extracts of C. guianensis leaves show high insecticidal effects on nymphs and adult flies whereas low effect on the eggs of B. tabaci as compared to control. The results revealed that the tested material exhibited reasonable insecticidal activity against all the stages of whiteflies. Hence, the extracts from C. guianensis plant could be used as an effective and environmentally sustainable bio-insecticide for the control of whiteflies, Bemisia tabaci.

Abstract: Data deduplication is one of important data compression techniques for eliminating duplicate copies of repeating data, and has been widely used in cloud storage to reduce the amount of storage space and save bandwidth. To protect the confidentiality been proposed to encrypt the data before outsourcing. To better protect data security, this paper makes the first attempt to formally address the problem of authorized data deduplication. Different from traditional deduplication systems, the differential privileges of users are further considered in duplicate check besides the data itself. We also present several new deduplication constructions supporting authorized duplicate check in a hybrid cloud architecture. Security analysis demonstrates that our scheme is secure in terms of the definitions specified in the proposed security model. As a proof of concept, we implement a prototype of our proposed authorized duplicate check scheme and conduct testbed experiments using our prototype. We show that our proposed authorized duplicate check scheme incurs minimal overhead compared to normal operations.

Abstract: There is a growing recognition that visual design and the concept of aesthetics is emerging as a key marketing element regarding the promotion and presentation of products, services, events, people, ideas, etc. (Köksal, 2013). The aim of this paper was to develop a conceptual framework regarding how visual imagery and design in advertising combining the suggestion of consumers about the processing of visual information in advertising. This paper investigated consumers’ views and opinions about the elements in visual designs found in adverts that impacts viewer’ perceptions. The study reviewed prior research regarding the notion of advertisements and visual designs. An Interview guideline was then developed to question the Egyptian consumers on its application in the market. This study was considered conclusive research, with a cross-sectional design and an exploratory purpose. The variables were identified through the use of semi-structured interviews. Twelve interviews were conducted until the saturation level. The empirical findings indicated that visual designs in advertisements play a major role in influencing and swaying their perceptions. In particular, the research found that a perceptive “matching” of the visual design properties used in ads (predominately visual or verbal) and the consumer segment needs (desiring material to be presented in a visual or verbal manner) appears to be critical. The use of imagery impacts consumers’ perception because it increases recall, enhances attitude toward the promoted matter, and affects behavioral intentions. Visual communication attracts attention since ads have become so complex in its efforts to use aesthetics to seize focus and persuade consumers.

Abstract: Traffic congestion is a critical issue which must be resolved. The concept of adaptive traffic lights controller needs to be developed to improve the traffic flow. This paper presents the design of an adaptive traffic light controller using fuzzy logic control Sugeno Method. This fuzzy logic control is used to determine the length of green time at an intersection. The purpose of this paper is to design an adaptive traffic light controller with three inputs, namely the number of queues, waiting time, and the traffic flow of vehicles. The design was applied in a simulation to observe the number of queues, waiting time, and the number of vehicles passing an intersection. The simulation results show that the traffic light using fuzzy logic control performs better than using fixed time control. The number of queues and waiting time are lower, and the number of departures is higher than using the fixed time controller for a traffic light.

Abstract: Indonesia has two species of indigenous freshwater prawn Macrobrachium rosenbergii and Macrobrachium idae which are distributed in different environments/habitats. Adaptation to different environments leads to dissimilar characters, causing morphological variance which could be evaluated using morphometric character measurements. This study was aimed to discover the morphometric variation of the population of freshwater prawn Macrobrachium rosenbergii and Macrobrachium idae in South Sulawesi. The samples were taken from Waelawi River in North Luwu, Kariango River in Pinrang and Tempe Lake in Wajo. The freshwater prawn’s morphology was analyzed descriptively based on the coefficient of variance. The Macrobrachium rosenbergii’s coefficient of variance was relatively high, ranging between 9.33% and 71.20% and the coefficient of variance for Macrobrachium idae was between 8.69% and 67.49%. The analysis of 25 morphological characters demonstrated that the population was heterogeneous, which was probably caused by difference in habitat.

Abstract: In the quest to mitigate rural poverty and agricultural land degradation, a market-based incentive mechanism called Payment for Environmental Services (PES) was found as a useful antidote for both rural poverty and degradation of agricultural land. It was observed that the phenomena (i.e. poverty and environmental resources degradation) could not be divorced from each other (Obayelu, 2010). However a need for identification of the poor is inevitable. Although many authors argued that property rights (land ownership rights) is a prerequisite for PES to be effective. This study stands to think in a contrary dimension. It critically intends to conduct the research in the Oyo state farm settlements, where no property rights were given to the farmers. This paper argued on the premise of lack of provison for social security and access to credit facilities, in Nigerian rural settings as the potential ‘bait’ for PES effectiveness and willingness of the farmers to participate in it. Nevertheless the extent of participation will be determined by the type of attributes PES offer to the rural farmers.

Abstract: Security is the degree of resistance and protection from damage. We set up our password as complex as we can that consist of lowercase and uppercase characters along with special characters to make our profile and various information secure, but what if someone knows this password, are we secure then? To overcome this problem we have come with a solution SEMATRAL SYSTEM. SEcure MATrix based TRAcing and Login SYSTEM, is a central user login control within the browser where we can add up different accounts we want to access securely. SEMATRAL SYSTEM will not only secure the login for the account ID’s we add , but will also maintain a log of user activities for the same. This web-app will act as an intermediate layer of security between user and social networking site’s traditional login; allowing users to access the account in either of the two way a) Live Login b) Dead login. SEMATRAL SYSTEM’s login system will be different from the existing one’s i.e Username and Password, it will allow the user to login to system via a unique concept of Matrix based password, eliminating the use of keyboard thus guarding against various key logger viruses. There are many more features in the system. Securing the secured is the main moto of this system.

Abstract: This paper proposes a novel confusion and diffusion algorithm for image encryption based on logistic map and cheat image. We choose the initial condition and control parameter of logistic map as the secret key. The cheat image selected from the most common images in public network, together with the chaotic matrices generated by logistic maps, is employed both in encryption and decryption processes to encrypt and recover the plain image. One cheat image can be used to encrypt a great number of plain images if the cheat image does not attract the attention of the attackers. The computer experiments such as statistical analysis, sensitivity analysis, differential attack analysis and cheat characteristic analysis, prove that the proposed image encryption algorithm is robust and secure enough to be used in practical communication.

Abstract: Rural communities are characterized by low energy consumption and poor load factor. The use of off-grid systems to provide electricity to these communities must be done taking into consideration the peculiar nature of rural communities to improve the utilization of the installed capacity. In many situations where off-grid technology is employed for rural electrification, community-level power supply systems could have been a better option as compared to other off-grid technologies such as the stand-alone systems. This is due to the fact that all individual loads connected to power supply systems are not used simultaneously; there is always some degree of diversity. In this paper, community-isolated grid solar PV system has been designed for Yabiw rural community. In the design, demand factor and diversity factor of 0.3 and 1.7 were considered respectively. This resulted in 82.35% reduction of daily power estimated for the community in the design of community level isolated grid system from 109.856kW to 19.386kW.

Abstract: Acute myocardial infarction is the leading cause of death in both developed and developing countries like India. Myocardial infarction has been recognized among younger age group more frequently in recent years. The aim of this study was to provide an overview of the risk factors in patients presenting with acute myocardial infarction younger than 40 years. Out of the 50 patients analyzed, 44 were males and 6 females with the mean age of 36 ± 4.2 years. Dyslipidemia was the most prevalent risk factor at 82% followed by smoking (80%), family history (72%), low socioeconomic status (52%), hypertension (46%), sedentary life style (40%), psychological stress (38%), obesity (36%), and diabetes (14%). Most of patients had more than two risk factors. More common presenting symptom was chest pain (92%). All diabetic patients presented with angina equivalents. Hypertension was the most common finding (46%). Dyslipidemia, smoking, hypertension, and sedentary life style are the major modifiable risk factors in our young adults. Whenever young male who is smoker or obese presents in emergency room with chest pain, we have to suspect myocardial Infarction. Other conventional risk factors are also prevalent but alcohol and OCPs are not a major health problem for South Indians.

Abstract: Artocarpus heterophyllus Lam (Jackfruit) which belongs to the Moraceae family , is believed to be indigenous to the south western rain forest of India. There exists a lot of variability among jack trees since most of them are raised from seedlings. A survey has been conducted in Kuttanad region to find out promising jack types during 2010-12 and selected six superior trees based on physico-chemical characters and organoleptic properties. Hence a study was undertaken to realize the genetic relationship among these jackfruit selections during 2012-2014, using RAPD technique. DNA was isolated from young leaves of six A. heterophyllus selections . Out of the thirty RAPD primers used for the analysis only ten produced maximum reproducible polymorphic bands (OPA-1, OPA-2, OPA-4, OPA9, OPC7, OPD19, OPN-05, OPM- 16, OPG-03 and OPG-10) . The primer OPA-1 gave the maximum number of bands and OPN-05 produced least. An UPGMA dendrogram was constructed and the statistical analysis was done using NTSYSPC-2.02i.

Abstract: The new steel section known as triangular web profile (TriWP) was studied by previous researcher to replaced flat web (FW) steel section for better resistance on bending behaviour. In order to reduce the weight of TriWP steel section for economic purposes opening on the web steel section is introduced. This paper described the study on the bending behaviour in major axis and mainly focus on the effect of opening on the TriWP, effect of the web thickness on triangular web profile with opening (TriWP with opening) steel section and effect of different type of opening shape on TriWP with opening. The TriWP with opening steel section with 200×100×6×3 mm size was analyze using finite element analysis. From finite element analysis it can be observed that the deflection on TriWP steel section is less compared to that TriWP with opening steel section. The different of deflection between TriWP with opening steel section and TriWP steel section is less than 1 mm. The deflection of the section based on manual calculation is 1.292 mm which is less than 8.33 mm, deflection limit of the section. Therefore TriWP with opening can resist and carry the same load as TriWP steel section can carry.

Abstract: Safety and quality are essential issues in the healthcare industry and it is on this basis, that health professionalism is formed. In healthcare, be it from primary care to tertiary care and right up to public health, various performance indicators have been developed to measure and control the efficiency of health services provided [1]. In the last few years, in pace with International practices, Malaysian policy makers and patients have exerted increasing pressure on health organizations to improve quality and efficiency As such, performance management and appraisal have become key tools to measurement on how well healthcare objectives are accomplished. Performance management and appraisal, when executed well, will in no doubt increase quality healthcare and patient safety. Results obtained from it are more about taking action rather than merely creating awareness. It is crucial to understand that performance management and appraisal involves the whole healthcare system and cannot be individualized or departmentalized and it is indeed the key to achieve fundamental long-term quality improvements.

Abstract: Travel and Tourism Industry is one of the fastest growing industry in the world contributing a colossal US $6 trillion dollars in 2011 and creating 5 million new jobs (Travel and Tourism Economic Impact Report, 2012). Hospitality sector is one of the main pillars of this industry in Kenya which has generally continued to experience phenomenal growth both in terms of revenues generated and infrastructure to support the industry. Its phenomenal growth has come along with fierce competition among the players in the industry for the limited human resource available. Increased ability to retain their current employees has therefore become a very important objective for most employers in this sector. This study seeked to identify the effects of the pay and work environment on the retention of employees in the Hotel Industry in Mombasa County. Findings revealed that pay had a weak influence on employee retention while work environment had the strongest influence which was significant at (p = .005) 2-tailed. While it was evident from the results that work environment plays a major role in employee retention, to remain competitive it was recommended that employers in the industry also need to re-evaluate the current weaknesses associated with pay.

Abstract: This study was conducted to evaluate the physico-chemical and sensory properties of banana flour-sesame paste blends. The experiment consisted of ripe banana flour + sesame paste proportions: 55 +45% (BfBR1), 45 +55% (BfBR2) and 35 +65% (BfBR3), respectively. Sesame paste made from 50% sugar syrup was used as a control. Banana flour-sesame pastes showed a significant (p<0.05) increase in moisture (wb), fiber, ash, fat, protein from 3.33, 3.12, 3.28, 23.27, 11.76 (%) in the control to 5.24-6.42, 3.71-4.73, 4.94-5.12, 23.42-33.56, 11.96-15.89 (%) in the different blends respectively. Similarly Ca, Zn, Fe (db) were increased from 522.94, 2.09, 5.17 mg/100g in the control to 531.75-767.98, 2.27-2.83, 5.37-7.30 mg/100g in the blends respectively. But the carbohydrate content was reduced from the control value of 50.44% to 34.07-49.05% in the various blended pastes. The total phenolic content (mgGAE/g), ferric ion reducing power (FRP) (μmol/g) and phytic acid (mg/100g) contents (at BfBR2 and BfBR3) were increased from control value of 11.16, 15.68 and 164.96 to 11.99-16.19, 16.22-21.88 and 144.41-208.01 in the blended pastes, respectively. Sensory evaluation revealed that the most acceptable paste product for its flavor was obtained from 55% sesame paste higher than the control value. Descriptive sensory analysis revealed that all products had light brown and light yellow color, roasted nutty flavor and sweet taste. Therefore, ripe banana flour-sesame paste blending was found to produce acceptable pastes enriched by protein, ash, fiber, minerals, antioxidant power and phenolics.

Abstract: Intercultural competence can be viewed as the ability to communicate successfully with culturally different others using one’s intercultural knowledge, skills and attitudes. This also is the ultimate goal of learning a foreign language. Nevertheless, this aspect of having an intercultural dimension to foreign Language learning is a completely neglected aspect of English language learning in Sri Lanka, though English is prescribed as the lingua franca or the link language by the country's constitution. On the other hand, to become a competent teacher in English, one needs to be interculturally competent as the teachers of English are constantly required to handle students in linguistically and ethnically segregated Sinhala and Tamil medium schools. Thus, this study is very significant as there have been no empirical studies conducted in the similar nature, in the country and few elsewhere in the world. The study explores the possibilities of developing Intercultural Competence of prospective teachers of English at a preservice teacher education institute in Sri Lanka, through a curriculum intervention which provides them with extensive opportunities to engage in intercultural interactions while learning English in the classroom together with their counterparts from other major ethnic groups.

Abstract: The present study deals with the identification, documentation and exploration of Minor Forest Resources (wild edible vegetables and medicinal plants) utilised by fringe villagers of Greater Manas Landscape, Assam (North-East India). A total of 48 wild edible plants and 32 medicinal plants were surveyed. Plants are the nature’s gift to mankind and consumed wholly or in parts either cooked or raw. These are delicious, refreshing and chief sources of vitamins, minerals and protein. Vegetables constitute a major part of daily food intakes and play an important role in well-balanced diet and maintain healthy living. Many plants are used for different ethno medical purposes, including tuberculosis, asthma, paralysis, jaundice, earache, constipation, weakness, snake poisoning, etc. The utilization of wild plant resources in day-to-day life of Bodo tribes has been an old-age practice and recently popularity of the same has declined. Hence, prime importance should be given to them in order to maintain and popularize this important source of non-conventional food supply. In this paper, the scientific names along with family, local names in Bodo, time of availability, parts used and method of use are presented.

Abstract: A methodical approach is introduced to establish energy dispersion relation with hole sub-band states and optical gain spectra for variant growth directions such as [00 1], [1 1 0], [1 1 1], [1 1 3] and [1 1 1] of compressively strained InGaAs/GaAs quantum well (QW) architecture by solving envelope function equation using finite difference method. It is demonstrated that there is a substantial correlation between optical gain and its emission wavelength amidst a particular crystal orientation of the QW. From the MATLAB simulation results, it can be settled that the dispersion relation between hole sub-band states, optical gain, and the threshold current density in [1 1 1] direction deviates exclusively from the other directions, in particular, the more conventional [0 0 1]. The regular optical gains are inspected 2750 cm-1,3250 cm-1, 2800 cm-1, 2900 cm-1,and 1900 cm-1 in [0 0 1], [1 1 0], [1 1 1], [1 1 3], and [1 3 1] crystal orientations, respectively, when the injection carrier density is 2 × 1018 cm-3. Eventually, the highest optical power and the lowest threshold current are attained in orientation [1 1 0] while the number of quantum well is five.

Abstract: The seismic response of bridges seismically isolated by elastomeric bearings to earthquake excitation is presented in this paper. The specific objective of the study is to identify the various parameters affecting the response of the isolated bridge and to assess the effects of seismic isolation on peak responses of the bridge. The seismic response of the lumped mass model of continuous span isolated bridges is obtained by solving the governing equations of motion in the state space form. To study the effectiveness of bearings, the seismic response of isolated bridges subjected to various near field and far field earthquakes is compared with the response of corresponding non isolated bridges (i.e. bridges without isolation devices). The specific objectives of the study are to investigate the performance of bridge isolated by LRB and to investigate the optimum parameters of the LRB bearing for minimum earthquake response of the isolated bridge under different near field and far field earthquake ground motions.

Abstract: The Indian languages which have tones are mostly Tibeto-Burman languages which are spoken in North-Eastern part of India, except two languages namely Gojri and Punjabi which belong to Indo-Aryan language family. Like many others Tibeto-Burman Languages, Bodo is also tonal Language. However dearth of proper research of its tonal phenomenon has left many questions unanswered. There have been conflicting views about the number of tones (rising from zero to four) tone assignment system and morpho-phonemics of the languages. The only agreement among the researchers is that, the Bodo language is a tonal language. So, this analysis is a step to settle regarding the tone or tonal phonology of the Bodo language with the help of Bodo informants and other scholars’ research works.

Abstract: Feed pumps are an essential subsystem of boilers used in industrial process plants and called as boiler feed pump (BFP). Normally, BFP is high pressure unit that takes suction from condensate return system and can be of the centrifugal type pump. In centrifugal pump, water enters axially through the impeller eyes and exits radially. Generally, electric motor is used as prime mover to run the feed pump. To force water into boiler, the pump must generate sufficient pressure to overcome steam pressure developed by boiler. In the present study, design and analysis of boiler feed pump having a flow of 2000 m3/hr, head of 470 m and operating at 130±10 oC has been taken up. The various pump parameters are obtained from design and pump model is developed using modelling software Creo Parametric. To evaluate the results at given operating conditions, CFD analysis is carried out using Ansys CFX module. Blade number has great influence on the pump performance. Therefore, CFD analyses are carried out for the pump with 5, 6 and 7 blades. Based on performance of every pump model, the best feed pump design is selected. A steady state CFD analysis is carried out using the K-ε turbulence model to solve for the Navier-Stroke’s equation.

Abstract: Al-amanah (honesty) is a first requirement to be real success in the world and rewarded in the Day of Judgment. Nevertheless, many people are inattentive to fulfill it in their daily life. Consequently, corruption, violence and anti-social activities are an everyday occurrence throughout the world. Therefore, the main objective of this study is focus on value of al-amanah in humans’ daily life. The study concentrates on the Qur’anic ayat which talk about al-amanah in various aspects of humans’ life, its implementation in order to obtain the satisfaction of Almighty Allah through performing all His commands and avoiding all that He prohibits. The study found whoever careless in fulfilling al-amanah, he is doing violence to his own self as well as leading to acts of corruption, violence and anti-social activities in societies throughout the world. However, the person who performs Allah’s orders and avoids His prohibitions it means he fulfills al-amanah for his own wellbeing and leading to others in performing it.

Abstract: The present study primarily concentrates on the waste generated by the fisheries sector and its effect on the human health and environment. Fish wastages attract pathogens, create bad odor, general aesthetic degradation, contamination of water resources and other hazards. Therefore decision makers move for some alternative methods of disposing commercial fish wastages. Fuzzy mathematical modeling plays an important role in decision making techniques. In this paper we use fuzzy multi criteria group decision making method VIKOR to help the municipal authorities to choose the right alternative method for the safe disposal of commercial fish waste.

Abstract: Business Record (BR) is an emerging centric model of information exchange, which is often outsourced to be stored at a third party, such as cloud providers. However, there have been wide privacy concerns as business information could be exposed to those third party servers and to unauthorized parties. To assure the business data control over access to their own BRs, it is a promising method to encrypt the BRs before outsourcing. Yet, issues such as risks of privacy exposure, scalability in key management, flexible access and efficient user revocation, have remained the most important challenges toward achieving fine-grained, cryptographically enforced data access control. To achieve fine-grained and scalable data access control for BRs, we leverage attribute based encryption (ABE) techniques to encrypt all business file. We focus on the multiple data owner scenario, and divide the users in the BR system into multiple security domains that greatly reduces the key management complexity for owners and users. A high degree of data privacy is guaranteed simultaneously by exploiting multi-authority ABE.

Abstract: This work investigated the effects of addition of silicon carbide (SiC) as nano particulate reinforcement material on the mechanical properties of AA2618 alloy. The experiment was conducted by adding varying weight percentage fractions of silicon carbide (SiC) nano particles: 5%, 10%, 15%, 20%, 25% and 30%, to molten AA2618 alloy via compocasting route. On solidification, the samples were machined and mechanical properties test such as hardness, ultimate tensile strength, density; Young’s modulus and yield strength were carried out. The results indicated that the developed method was quite successful to obtain uniform dispersion of particle reinforcement material in the matrix of the alloy. The hardness, ultimate tensile strength, density, Young’s modulus and yield strength were found to increase as the percentage of silicon cabide (SiC) reinforcement particles increased except for ductility that decreased with increase in the percentage of reinforcement particles. Therefore nano silicon carbide (SiC) particles were found to be good reinforcement material for AA2618 alloy composite.

Abstract: The influences of carbonized /uncarbonized cornhub powder on the vulcanizate properties of natural rubber/acrylonitrile butadiene rubber have been studied. The filler used in this work was corn hub powder. Filler loading used was 0-30 wt. % at two particle sizes (0.1µm and 0.15µm). Results show that the tensile strength, abrasion resistance, hardness and modulus of elasticity all increased with increase in filler loadings at the two particle sizes investigated, while flex fatigue, rebound resilience, elongation at break and compression set all decreased with increase in filler loadings at the two particle sizes investigated. The study shows that particle size and the nature of filler have a lot to play on the effectiveness of the filler in polymer composites. The smaller sized filler showed improved mechanical properties due to better filler-matrix interaction. The result therefore proved that corn hub can be used as alternative filler for elastomers where strength and hardness are required.

Abstract: The importance of numerical integration may be appreciated by noting how frequently the formulation of problems in applied analysis involves derivatives. It is then natural to anticipate that the solutions of such problems will involve integrals. For most integrals no representation in terms of elementary functions is possible, and approximation becomes necessary.

Abstract: Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) fingerlings (Average weight 34.50 ± 0.05g) were cultured in glass aquaria and fed two formulated (pelleted) diets for 12 weeks. The control diet containing wheat bran replaced with 30% olive mill waste. Each diet was fed to 3 groups of 15 fish / aquarium. At the end of the trial, growth performance and biochemical parameters values of serum glucose, total protein, cholesterol, triglyceride, and serum enzymes, aspartate aminotransferase (AST) and alanine aminotransferase(ALT) were measured. Results indicated, no significant (P<0.05) differences in average body weight, protein efficiency ratio and the survival rate between fish fed on treated and control diets, while there was significant differences in standard growth rate and feed conversion ratio. Additionally, the blood serum of glucose, total protein, and cholesterol were lower in the treated than the control group. While the values of triglycerides of fish fed on treated diet was twice that found in fish fed on control diets. For the serum enzymes (AST and ALT ) evaluated in this experimental caused no significant differences in both groups of fish.The mean values of these biochemical parameters were within the acceptable range for normal metabolism of Nile tilapia. The results of this study seem to indicate that olive mill waste improved its nutritional value in practical feeds for Nile tilapia fingerlings and without any effect on biochemical parameters.
