Abstract: Heavy metal environmental pollution, especially with lead has become very disturbing, because it causes multiple negative effects in living organisms. It is known that lead is a potent inhibitor of ALA-D activity. The current investigations provide an attempt to find minimal critical level of lead that produces inhibitory effect of ALA-D activity of erythrocyte. In present study it has been also examined the effect of high temperature in activity of ALA-D. Research was performed in human blood hemolysate. For that purpose we selected a healthy human individual who has not been exposed to lead intoxication, does not smoke and does not consume alcohol. The negative correlation was estimated between Pb concentration and ALA-D activity in all concentration (2-100 μg%). Exception from this inhibition trend is the activity of enzyme at 60°C in lead concentration from 7-10 μg%. In concentration of lead above 7 μg% and in temperature of 37°C the activity of enzyme was low while in the same concentration bat in temperature of 60 °C the activity of enzyme was recovered. In high concentrations of Pb, the activity of ALA-D was significantly inhibited at 37°C in comparison to other temperatures (42°C, 50°C and 60°C).

Abstract: The study was aimed at ascertaining the prevalence of typhoid fever by Salmonella typhii and the four year trend of the infection in Etinan, Akwa Ibom State using hospital-based data. Hospital records of those who attended the General Hospital Etinan for medical attention was collected and collated. The four year cumulative prevalence of Salmonella infection was 63.8% (58.0% for males and 68.2% for females), Prevalence was significantly higher among females than among males (x2-test; p < 0.05). Prevalence was comparable in all the years except for the year 2001, which had a significantly higher prevalence than that of each of the other years (x2-test; p < 0.05 for all the tests). A comparison of the prevalence of Salmonella typhi in each of the age groups between 2000 and 2003 showed that in 2001, there was significantly high prevalence (up to 80%) in the first two age groups, 0-4 years and 5-9 years, unlike in the other years where prevalence in the same age groups ranged from 12% to 52% (x2-test; p < 0.05 for all the tests). Generally, prevalence among the various age groups ranged from: 12% in 0-4 years age

Abstract: The gap between theory and practice has been a critical issue in medical education. Past studies have shown that the gap between theory and practice is a result from the non-existent integration between theory and practice. This article seeks to discuss how integration between the two can be enhanced in the paramedic curriculum of the Ministry of Health Malaysia. There are 7 main factors that have been discussed namely the curriculum model, organisation and the content of theory and practice, teaching methodology, assessment criteria, the role of the lecturer, the role of the service staff and hidden curriculum.

Abstract: Monitoring of soil water content (volumetric water content, VWC) is an important process in agricultural and ecological programs, and a vital process in flood and water resource management. There are several methods in estimating VWC but often these are time consuming, invasive and expensive. This paper investigates the applicability of a surface based geophysical technique, Ground-Penetrating Radar (GPR), for estimating the VWC in shallow soil (top 0.30 m of soil subsurface). The guided wave sounding, GWS, technique (an invasive application of the GPR technique) was used on a vegetable garden located at latitude 6.67 and longitude -1.56, south of the College of Engineering, KNUST, Kumasi, Ghana. The MALÅ ProEx GPR equipment using shielded antennae with a central frequency of 800 MHz was used for the measurements.

Abstract: The present study was conducted to investigate the students attitudes towards English language learning (ELL) and use of self-regulated learning (SRL) strategies at one college in Dak Lak, Vietnam. This study involved 241 non-English majors taking part in answering a questionnaire. The results showed that although the participants had positive attitudes towards ELL, they were likely to engage in SRL very low. Number of years of learning English did not account for the participants change of attitudes to ELL. Academic achievements were also found to be significantly related to cognitive learning and environment management strategies. Additionally, academic achievements and attitudes towards ELL were positively correlated to SRL, yet only attitudes towards ELL were predictors of SRL.

Abstract: Rapid urban population growth has led not only to an increasing demand for urban land, particularly for housing, but also for other various urban uses. And that in many countries, the increasing demand for land is affecting rural-urban fringes. This paper attempts to situate the rural-urban fringe within the urban context by reviewing literature and theories on urban land use. The review of literature is guided by the view that there is no single dominant theory or paradigm of land use change and development.

Abstract: Incorporation of filters between the X-rays source and the patient in Computed Tomography helps to optimize the radiation dose and prevent unnecessary radiation; however the filters use can act as a source of secondary radiation due to angular scattering. The process of X-rays scattering, the energy transmitted and the scattered photons from such filters has is presented. This shows that the scattered photons that can contribute to unnecessary radiation are due to Compton Scattering. Only by understanding and proper collimation of the X-rays, can it be useful in diagnosis without affecting image quality or contributing to unwanted radiation to the patient and laboratory staff.

Abstract: Information is an important asset of an organization. Large amount of information need to be stored and processed in network based computers. The confidentiality, integrity and availability of the system resources have raised the vulnerability of these systems to security threats, attacks and intrusions. One idea is to use a neural network algorithm for detecting intrusions. The neural network algorithms are popular for their ability to ’learn’ the patterns in a given environment and thus can be trained to detect intrusions by recognizing patterns of an intrusion. In this work we perform a comparative study of Multilayer Feed Forward, Elman Back Propagation, Cascaded Forward Back Propagation and Self Organizing Feature Map neural networks based intrusion detection systems. In this study we work on the well structured KDD CUP 99 dataset.

Abstract: A deadlock occurs when there is a set of processes waiting for resource held by other processes in the same set. The processes in deadlock wait indefinitely for the resources and never terminate their executions and the resources they hold are not available to any other process. The occurrence of deadlocks should be controlled effectively by their detection and resolution, but may sometimes lead to a serious system failure. After implying a detection algorithm the deadlock is resolved by a deadlock resolution algorithm whose primary step is to either select the victim then to abort the victim. This step resolves deadlock easily. This paper describes deadlock detection using wait for graph and some deadlock resolution algorithms which resolves the deadlock by selecting victims using different criteria.

Abstract: Healthcare is approaching a critical situation. The ageing of population is increasing the prevalence of chronic diseases. Cardiovascular and respiratory diseases not only kill hundreds of thousands of people each year around the globe but also cost billions of dollars. Patients have to make frequent visits to their doctor to get their vital signs measured. People in remote places are deprived of proper healthcare. Hence, there is a need to develop a system which will help in reducing the frequent visits to the clinic and also help in early diagnosis of dangerous diseases. A system must be targeted both for monitoring elderly and for monitoring rehabilitation after hospitalization period and at the same time economically efficient. This paper presents our initial attempts to develop such a system with the help of Adaptive Neuro-Fuzzy Inference System (ANFIS) by adaptive learning mechanism. The MATLAB simulation results indicate that the performance of the ANFIS approach is valuable and easy to implement. The developed healthcare system can be useful for the elderly and terminally ill patients confined within their homes and at the same time helpful to the pregnant women for their regular checkups without personally visiting to the clinic.

Abstract: An attempt has been made to study one of the most severe hazards in West Bengal, India. Study has been carried out to analyze and report the river bank erosion due to morphometric change of the Ganga River, upstream of Farakka Barrage up to Rajmahal. Here, Sinuosity, Braidedness Index, percentage of the island area to the total river reach area have been measured for the year of 1955, 1977, 1990, 2001, 2003, 2005 and 2010. The analysis shows a drastic increase in all of those parameters over the period of time. For increasing sinuosity, the river has been engulfing the large areas of left bank every year. The victims are mostly from Malda district. Another task of this study is to get the temporal shift monitoring for the river reach. 22 cross-sections have been made to get that shift statistics along each cross-section. This task has been followed by vulnerability analysis to assess the risk for the gram-panchayets for next 10 years. These risk zones have been identified by applying linear regression method for each cross-section after proper validation. So, by risk zoning with the aid of remote sensing and GIS technologies, we can plan for better hazard prevention and preparedness programs.

Abstract: A total of 1350 mosquitoes were caught during the study. The monthly catches ranged from 210 to 360. Out of this, 1306 (96.7%) were dissected. Overall, parous rate was 75.0%, and ranged from 62.2% in August to 91.3% in December, 2012. The variability in parous rates between months was statistically significant (×2-test, p < 0.05). Relating monthly parous rates with the wet and dry seasons within the sampling months showed significant variability, with higher parity in the dry than wet season (×2-test, p < 0.05). The analysis of parity levels among female mosquitoes caught during the study showed that Parous-one (P1) was most abundant followed by parous-two. Parous-four (P4) was the least. The distribution of parity levels in relation to the sampling months indicated that the proportion of P3s increased in the dry season months while the P1s decreased. In conclusion, ascertaining the age distribution of vectors is very important as it is useful in monitoring the success or otherwise of large-scale vector control measures. It is therefore recommended that control measures against adult mosquitoes be initiated and sustained in the study area. Periodic verification of the success or otherwise of such control measures should be carried out using the physiological age determination method.

Abstract: This Paper is about power-line voice communication over the low-voltage network. Power-line communications is the use of in-house power supply network for communication perseverance. Power-line network has very widespread arrangement in every building and power-line is developed for transmission of power at 50-60 Hz and 230 volts. Hence use of Power-line network for transmission of voice with power supply has increased considerations. The communication approach that eventually could be used for voice transfer over the power-line network is described. Power transmission is achieved by using the principle of superimposition of voce over power in power-line cables. The structure described can be improved and reformed for future requirements.

Abstract: Securities investors in the 21st century seem to change trend of investment for fear of the effects of the global financial crises and executive fraud scandals which accounts for the quick fall in the value of shares and other investment securities in the Nigerian Capital market. Informed investors are of the view that the primary aim of their investment is to help create more wealth and advance their grip on corporate control yet these have not been realistic because of these crises hence the diversion from securities investment business to property ownerships. These have accosted most investors to resort to alternative investments, most especially the properties such as land and buildings.

Abstract: Nematodes are commonly referred to as non segmented round worm, thread worms or pin worms. Its body is elongated, cylindrical, bilaterally symmetrical and tapering towards both end. It is pseudocoelomate and dioecious with sexual dimorphism. Its impact on agriculture by way of inflicting is quite substantial. In the District Bilaspur of Himachal Pradesh, in the present study on nematodes, two types of nematodes have been detected from the roots and rhizosphere of okra crop. These two are Ectoparisitic and Endoparisitic. The present study also reveals that percentage of Meliodogyne incognita is quite high in some parts of the District of Bilaspur. Okra is susceptible to root-knot nematodes damage. If Okra is to be grown in areas prone to nematode attacks Nematicide must be sprayed prior to planting. Non chemical management of nematodes can be accomplished through the use of soil solarization, crop rotation or the use of nematodes suppressive crops.

Abstract: Mobile ad-hoc networks (MANETs) are self-configuring networks of nodes connected via wireless without any form of centralized administration. This kind of networks is currently one of the most important research subjects, due to the huge variety of applications (emergency, military, etc...). In MANETs, each node acts both as host and as router, thus, it must be capable of forwarding packets to other nodes. Topologies of these networks change frequently. To solve this problem, special routing protocols for MANETs are needed because traditional routing protocols for wired networks cannot work efficiently in MANETs.

Abstract: In this paper, an organization with two grades subjected to exit of personnel due to the policy decisions taken by the organization is considered. As the exit of personnel is unpredictable a new univariate recruitment policy involving two thresholds one is optional and the other one mandatory is suggested to enable the organization to plan its decision on recruitment. Three mathematical models are constructed using a univariate policy based on shock model approach assuming that (i) the amount of wastage at each decision epoch are identically distributed constantly correlated and exchangeable exponential random variables(ii)the inter-decision times form an order statistics and (iii) the optional and mandatory thresholds follow various distribution. Theanalytical results are substantiated with numerical illustrations.

Abstract: In generalized transportation problem(GTP), the cost of transportation cij per unit product from the ith origin to the jth destination is considered as independent of amount of transported commodity xij. But in real life problems, there are many situations, e.g. quantity discount, price break etc., in which cost of transportation cij depends upon the amount of transported commodity xij. Based on these situations, in this paper, we consider a new type of discounted generalized transportation problem in which the cost of transportation cij per unit product depends on the amount of transported commodity xij. Thereby, we develop a new algorithm for obtaining the optimum solution of this problem. Finally, a numerical example is illustrated to support the algorithm.

Abstract: In this paper, I present a fast and robust practical tool for segmentation of solid tumors with minimal user interaction to assist clinicians and researchers in radio surgery planning and assessment of the response to the therapy. K Means based seeded tumor segmentation method on contrast enhanced T1 weighted magnetic resonance (MR) images, which standardizes the volume of interest (VOI) and seed selection, is proposed. And the result is compared against Cellular automata based tumor segmentation method. Seed points are selected as the intersection of maximum white points row wise and column wise . First the seed pixels of tumor and background are fed to the algorithm. Using this seeds, the algorithm finds the strength maps for both tumor and background image .This maps are then combined to get the tumor probability map. Comparison studies on both clinical and synthetic brain tumor datasets for both this methods demonstrate 80%–90% overlap performance of the proposed algorithm( K Means)in terms of, its efficiency and accuracy.

Abstract: As air transport serves a time sensitive market, the surface access to airports should be efficient and the airport-linked requirements be persistently updated. In the Indian context, there is an absence of dedicated transportation services to airports except for the city of New Delhi, where it has taken the first step by integration of dedicated airport express line with existing transportation system. Consequently, there is a need to emphasize on linking of dedicated transportation services in other Indian cities as a sustainable solution. Mumbai being the fourth most populated city in the world too lacks a dedicated transportation service to the airport, which is the second busiest airport in India and amongst the renowned in the world (Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UN), 2009). Therefore, the main objective of the study is to assess the need for emerging seamless ground accessibility to Indian airports by explicating the case of Mumbai. An interview survey was conducted to understand the trip characteristics of air passengers, their expectations and perceptions for making the mode choice. The results and conclusions were used in estimating cost and time savings per person per hour for the city of Bangalore, so that the same practice can be used for other Indian cities too.

Abstract: In this paper we develop and analyse an inventory model for deteriorating items with mixture of Weibull rate of decay and demand as function of both selling price and time without shortages. Using the differential equations, the instantaneous state of inventory at time‘t’, the amount of deterioration etc. are derived. With suitable cost considerations the total cost function and profit rate function are also obtained by maximizing the profit rate function, the optimal ordering and pricing policies of the model are derived. The sensitivity of the model with respect to the parameters is discussed through numerical illustration. It is observed that the deteriorating parameters have a tremendous influence on the optimal selling price and ordering quantity.

Abstract: Decision-making capacity of a woman is measured as one of the principal components of empowerment, and decision regarding savings of income is considered as capacity building. The present study addresses the rural Odisha women’s decision-making and capacity building through participation in Self Help Groups and microenterprises. The research has been carried out in the Banki block and Tigiria block of Cuttack District, Odisha, India. Field data were collected through survey cum interview and focus group discussion from rural women based on their working pattern, socio-economic condition, family background, education level, and size of the family. Statistical analyses including percentage, average, mean, standard deviation and Chi square test were applied to draw meaningful interpretation of the collected information. The results reveal that the range of economic activities led by the microenterprises helped the rural Odisha women to earn income of their own. The economic decision-making has been enhanced with mobilization of women in organized collectives as SHGs and their participation in microenterprises. Capacity building of women in terms of saving some income and spent on their personal items without any hesitation is also encouraging.

Abstract: Orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) is widely recognized as the key technology for the next generation broadband wireless communication (BWC) systems. Besides high spectral efficiency, reliable performance over fast fading channels is becoming more and more important for OFDM-based BWC systems, especially when high speed cars, trains and subways are playing an increasingly indispensable role in our daily life. The time domain synchronous OFDM (TDS-OFDM) has higher spectral efficiency than the standard cyclic prefix OFDM (CP-OFDM), but suffers from severe performance loss over high speed mobile channels since the required iterative interference cancellation between the training sequence (TS) and the OFDM data block. In this paper, a fundamentally distinct OFDM-based transmission scheme called time-frequency training OFDM (TFT-OFDM) is proposed, whereby every TFT-OFDM symbol has training information both in the time and frequency domains. Simulation results also demonstrate that TFT-OFDM outperforms CP-OFDM and TDS-OFDM in high speed mobile environments. This work based on simulation using MATLAB 7.11.

Abstract: Edge Detection is a part of various image processing operations. Usually image is smoothen, sharpen even deblurred before performing edge detection so as to generate finer edges. This approach does works well in various cases, but there are cases where such things can damage the actual data present in image, which can be due to improper smoothening or de-blurring or excessive of both. In such cases edge detection might miss some inferior and less prominent edges which can be important part of image structure.

Abstract: The decision to commence antiretroviral therapy (ART) is clinical and made in consultation with the patient with the help of basic laboratory investigations. Clinical assessment includes staging of (Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) diseases, determining other existing conditions, identifying other medications including traditional therapies, body weight, and assessment of patients’ readiness for antiretroviral therapy. The laboratory play an important role in initiation and follow up of already enrolled clients. CD4 cells can be constantly estimated to obtain values before the initiation of therapy and even during chemotherapy. This can be achieved through the use of flow cytometry instruments for estimating CD4 cells in individuals, such as Fascalibur or Fascount ; which work under the same principle but occasionally produces different results. There is need to establish their accuracy, reliability and reproducibility. This study was aimed at investigating the accuracy and reliability between Fascount and Fascalibur in CD4 count enumeration.

Abstract: To improve conversion efficiency for crystalline silicon solar cells, impurity photovoltaic (IPV) effect has been proposed as an approach for application of new concept solar cell. In this paper, we have carried out a comparative study of IPV solar cells doped with thallium, indium and vanadium. The potential of the IPV solar cell is investigated with different doping materials. It is found that an increase of 2.72%, 2.95% and 3.81% for conversion efficiency can be obtained by indium, thallium and vanadium impurities respectively by the IPV effect. The influence of the light trapping on the IPV solar cell performance is discussed. It is found that cell efficiency can increase by about 2.88% due to the IPV effect. In addition, light trapping has very important impact on the IPV solar cell property. A good light trapping should be required to obtain better device performance for IPV solar cells.

Abstract: This study aimed to determine the effectiveness of a self-care program for Thais with uncontrolled hypertension leading to pre-stroke. The program was based on self-care behavior and blood pressure control. The samples were 98 purposively selected patients with uncontrolled hypertension receiving care at a hospital in the central part of Thailand. The samples were randomly assigned to either the experimental (n = 50) or control group (n = 48). Those in the experimental group received a 24-week self-care program and routine care, while those in the control group received only routine care. The self-care program consisted of education sessions that were used to increase the samples’ knowledge about, and ability to carry out self-care for controlling their blood pressure. Data were collected via interview-administered questionnaires and blood pressure measurements, before and after participation in the program. Data were analyzed utilizing descriptive statistics; Chi-square; Mann-Whitney U test; and, independent t-test. Results indicated the experimental group, 24 weeks after completion of the program, had a significantly higher mean rank of self-care behavior regarding medication-taking, dietary control, exercise, stress management, and risk behavior avoidance, as well as significantly lower mean blood pressure levels than the control group. Findings suggest the program was effective in enhancing samples’ knowledge to control their blood pressure and prevent a complication as pre-stroke.

Abstract: The transformer oil insulation will deteriorates under the effect of thermal, electrical and chemical factors and under water which is one of the by-product of ageing. In order to evaluate the dielectric properties of sealed and unsealed dissipation factor (tan delta) capacitance measurement at power frequency (50 Hz) has commonly used to diagnose the insulation integrity and condition of transformer. The main drawback of this technique is that the measurement result obtained represent the status of the complete transformer insulation system. Hence, in this paper experimental investigation has been done by studying the dielectric property change (tan delta, dielectric constant and acidity) of different transformer oil sealed and unsealed to calculate affecting parameters namely moisture and ageing of both the sample (sealed and unsealed). A simulation model of the combined transformer insulation has been used to correlate the tan delta, acidity of each insulating material differentiate the sealed and unsealed value of a transformer.

Abstract: Web services [1] are the latest paradigm of distributed systems which are implemented as typically application programming interfaces (API) or web APIs that are accessed via HTTP and executed on a remote system hosting the requested services. The Web services are used to interact between components, programs, and applications. In this paper, we have proposed an approach to allow for support of web service descriptions and queries using registries that conforms to UDDI V3.0.2 specification. Specifically, our main aim is to discover user requested services based on not only on functional parameters but also non functional parameters such as Quality of Service (QoS) parameters. Web Service discovery can be augmented using query expansion as well as appended with QoS in requirement. Since the metadata associated with web services is very less as compared to HTML pages, to offer a web service appropriate to a client we have used two techniques from Information Retrieval: Query Expansion and Query Rewriting. The proposed approach does not require any modification to the existing UDDI data structures.

Abstract: In the normal format of circumstances, circumscribed delusional beliefs can follow brain injury. Authors suggest that these involve anomalous perceptual experiences created by a deficit to the person perceptual system, and misinterpretation of these experiences due to biased reasoning. We say notwithstanding the brain injury, indoctrination of beliefs is one that is responsible for disastrous consequences, detrimental ramifications and deleterious implications leading to illusion, as is the case with Time Delusion. All space and time is within us.

Abstract: Human lives can be saved from an accident by detecting an accident before it occurs. But this need advance accurate human detection and also accident detection capability. At present there are several works regarding pre crash detection & avoidance system from obstacle. But we are lacking to priorities crash with human or animals compared to obstacles. What would be the situation when a system has to choose between human and obstacles? If the system is unable to detect human then there is a probability to hit humans instead of obstacles. To solve this problem in this work we have priorities humans or animals first. Car will avoid human or animal first then if possible it will try to avoid obstacles also. If the system is unable to avoid accident then our system has accident detection technique with pin point location tracking using GSM only.

Abstract: When we work harder, our hearts beat faster. When we are hot, we sweat. The internal functions within our body regulate themselves. Correspondingly, would not we like to have systems that can heal themselves? Autonomous Computing is a holistic, system-wide perspective. The ultimate goal is to have the machine think for itself without human input, to be able to boot up backup systems, and even to order spare parts to ensure transparency to the user. Successful autonomic systems will need to be self-configuring, self-optimizing, self-protecting, and self-healing. So rather than having to tell systems what to do explicitly in a certain situation, we just tell these systems what we are trying to accomplish. While that ultimate goal is still years away, the first generation of self-adapting software tools is within reach. Autonomic computing will not reinvent computer science but will offer new opportunities—new ways of securing our systems against attack.

Abstract: We evaluated the changes in estrous cycle of female rats fed either high carbohydrate or high protein diets for 42 days relatively to commercially available rodent pellets. Animals fed high carbohydrate diet showed a lengthened estrus cycle while those fed with a high protein diet could not continue a healthy estrous cycle. Animals received a protein rich diet showed a lengthened estrus cycle with an atypically extended diestrous stage until protein rich food is withdrawn and a balanced diet was introduced. However, animals fed with a carbohydrate rich diet showed a typical estrous cycle but slightly lengthier. Present findings have shown that nutrition depletion affect on estrous cycle in rats.

Abstract: The management of racehorses remains amateurish in Sri Lanka although the sport has been prevailing in the country for over a century. This study aimed to gain basic knowledge on the local management practices, identify related problems and make suggestions for improvement. Nuwara Eliya district was selected as the study area since rearing horses and racing is done mainly in this area. Data were obtained by administering a questionnaire to the stable workers and the horse owners of every stable unit (n=5) in the district. The total number of racehorses in the district was 44, out of which Thoroughbreds were predominant (62%). The majority of the horses (72%) are imported from India. All the stables were located on well drained land, and were not undesirably close to domestic dwellings.

Abstract: Efficient performance of Agricultural Market Committees(AMCs) is considered to be the sine quo non for the economic development of an agrarian country like India. Though the number of AMCs have been steadily increasing in India, still the farmers are being exploited by one form or another in transacting the agricultural commodities. In view of this, several apprehensions and concerns were raised fearing about the performance of AMCs in discharging the regulatory provisions for efficient transaction of agricultural commodities. Various enactments have been formulated by Government from time to time to revamp the agricultural marketing system in the country and presently, Model act 2005 (The State Agricultural Produce Marketing (Development and Regulation) Act, 2005) has been under implementation. In this context of exploring the agricultural marketing system with a farmers ended approach, the present paper aims at analyzing the performance appraisal of AMCs in Telangana region of AP in India through Data Envelopment Analysis(DEA) approach. The analytical findings revealed that 59% of selected DMUs are being operated at Scale Efficiency <1. The remaining 41% DMUs are being operated at constant return to scale(CRS) and this directs the Government to continue the existing support even in the future.

Abstract: Groundnut is the major cash crop for Mahabubnagar district. It is important to know the present scenario of adoption of improved cultivation practices to get to know the adoption gaps and knowledge gaps resulting in lower yields and higher cost of cultivation. The study indicated that majority of the sample groundnut farmers were in the range of 31 – 60 years from this it could be inferred that the farmers practicing groundnut are middle aged and having small family norm, the average land holding of groundnut farmers was 2-5 acres, and majority of farmers were illiterates followed by the education level upto primary and secondary school level only and in choosing wider spacing had highest adoption gaps and weed management, water management, Organic manure application and pesticide management fertilizer management, and in choosing plant variety had highest knowledge gaps. The economic analysis indicated higher cost of cultivation in using seed rate, pesticides, and harvesting areas. These have to be addressed through awareness creation programmes and proactive policies that enable ease in procurement of necessary inputs and facilitating environment for adoption of improved cultivation practices, and reducing cost of cultivation , thereby increasing profits per unit area resulting in improvised livelihoods of the farmers.

Abstract: Analysis of retaining wall is one of the major part in Geotechnical Engineering. This can be done by various methods such as Rankines Theory, Coulombs Theory, Culmanns Graphical Method which depends on various assumptions . To overcome this, various approaches has been adopted, in this paper we have tried to formulate the same with the help of Dimension Analysis method by which results can be obtained without any assumptions and an universal formula can be developed. We have used the modified Buckingham-pi theorem for this analysis. The results of dimensional analysis so obtained are then compared with the actual test results. The comparison shows the validity of this method.

Abstract: Children are the nation most important resource. They hold the potential and set the limits of future development of any country. Children are not born with the innate ability to choose a nutritious diet, instead their food habits are learned through experience and education. Basic knowledge of food and normal eating is learned in childhood. Parents have been found to be the principle regulators of children’s eating and food supply, and the home environment is most influential on children’s consumption behaviors. Preschool children between the age group of 3 ½ yrs to 4 ½ years and 4 ½ years to 5 ½ years and their parents were selected for the nutrition education programme. The tools developed for the programme includes PowerPoint presentation and recipe booklet on smart school snacks for the parents. A nutrition handbook containing information about basic nutrition, food pyramids, stories and rhymes on nutrition were developed for the preschool children.The samples were subjected to pre test and post test to evaluate the impact of the developed tools.

Abstract: Image denoising is a process to restore a worth image from degraded image by choosing an appropriate filter but choosing an appropriate filter still is a challenge.Recently, wavelet transform has attracted more and more interest in image de-noising because the wavelet transformof an image produces a non-redundant image representation, which provides better spatial and spectral localization of image formation. The wavelet transform can be interpreted as image decomposition in a set of independent, spatially oriented frequency channels and each cannel can be treated as a single element for removal of noise using an appropriate shrinkage threshold and at the end all treated channels recombined to get denoised image. We discuss in this paper various shrinkage techniques used in wavelet transform for image denoising in respect of test image size, orthogonal wavelets, and elapsed time under Additive White Gaussian Noise.

Abstract: Welcome to Bancassurance. Bancassurance - a term coined by combining the two words bank and insurance (in French) - connotes distribution of insurance products through banking channels. Bancassurance encompasses terms such as ‘Allfinanz’ (in German), ‘Integrated Financial Services’ and ‘Assure banking’. This concept gained currency in the growing global insurance industry and its search for new channels of distribution. Banks, with their geographical spread and penetration in terms of customer reach of all segments, have emerged as viable sources for the distribution of insurance products. And everyone wants to jump onto the bandwagon for a piece of the action cake.

Abstract: Bisphenol A (BPA) is an industrial chemical that has been present in many hard plastic bottles and metal-based food and beverage cans since the 1960s. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the European Food Safety Authority (EPSA) and numerous government agencies worldwide for use in food contact application. Because bisphenol A is used in so many common products that we use every day—such as baby bottles, reusable water bottles, microwaveable containers, and the protective coating inside most food and beverage cans—most people in developed countries are exposed almost continuously to some level of bisphenol A. The safety threshold set by the EPA was based on decades-old data. On the basis of results from recent studies using novel approaches to test for subtle effects, both the National Toxicology Program at the National Institutes of Health and FDA have some concern about the potential effects of BPA on the brain, behavior, and prostate gland in fetuses, infants, and young children. Like many chemicals, BPA is found in the blood and urine of virtually every American tested by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Devised opinions among scientists about the exposure to BPA and health implications are going on, some arguing that its effect on health in negligible, but some has proved with studies about its effect on variety of disorders. This paper is therefore an attempt to review the recent concepts on the exposure of BPA in various disorders.

Abstract: K now Your Customer (KYC) is the due diligence and bank regulation that financial institutions and other regulated companies must perform to identify their clients and ascertain relevant information pertinent to doing financial business with them. In the USA, KYC is typically a policy implemented to conform to a customer identification program mandated under the Bank Secrecy Act and USA PATRIOT Act. Know your customer policies are becoming increasingly important globally to prevent identity theft fraud, money laundering and terrorist financing. Beyond name matching, a key aspect of KYC controls is to monitor transactions of a customer against their recorded profile, history on the customer’s account(s) and with peers.

Abstract: Address resolution protocol is one of the most critical protocol serving in the OSI model of network architecture. It is responsible for the conversion of network address to physical address at the network layer. But, it is vulnerable to certain attacks and hence information integrity also gets compromised to great extent. Many efforts have been made and different methods have also been applied to prevent such attacks at ARP, but none has been able to give satisfactory results. So, an analysis of such method in order to prevent ARP has been done to layout the feasibility considering different factors like backward compatibility, cost, efficiency, ease of implementation, size of network, reliability, manageability etc. of these respectively.

Abstract: An increasing number of Peer-to-Peer (P2P) Internet applications rely today on data dissemination as their cornerstone, e.g., audio or video streaming, multi-party games. These applications typically depend on some support for multicast communication, where peers interested in a given data stream can join a corresponding multicast group. As a consequence, the efficiency, scalability, and reliability guarantees of these applications are tightly coupled with that of the underlying multicast mechanism.

Abstract: Thalassemia describes a group of inherited disorders characterized by reduced amount of hemoglobin, the oxygen-carrying protein inside the red blood cells. Various haematological and serological parameters were studied in a cohort of thalasaemic patients coming for routine blood transfusion regime in a government run children hospital of Rajkot. Due to poor socio-economic condition, none of the patients were taking chelation therapy needed for better management of thalassaemia. To get insight into effect of multiple blood transfusions on these patients, age, spleen status, distribution of blood group, hemoglobin level and other hematological indices and serolological parameter like SGPT related to iron overburden was studied. A very low hemoglobin level with very high SGPT level along with sleenomegaly is suggestive of poor prognosis in these patients.

Abstract: An ad hoc wireless network is an autonomous self-organizing system of mobile nodes connected by wireless links where nodes not in direct range can communicate via intermediate nodes. A common technique used in routing protocols for ad hoc wireless networks is to establish the routing paths instead of continually maintaining a complete routing table. A significant concern in routing is the ability to function in the presence of byzantine failures which include nodes that drop, delay, or mis-route packets in an attempt to disrupt the routing service.

Abstract: SCADA refers to a large-scale, distributed measurement (and control) system. SCADA is not a specific technology, but a type of application. SCADA stands for Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition — any application that gets data about a system in order to control that system is a SCADA application. A SCADA application has two elements: 1. The process/system/machinery we want to monitor a control — this can be a power plant, a water system, a network, a system of traffic lights, or anything else. 2. A network of intelligent devices that interfaces with the first system through sensors and control outputs. Now modern SCADA system network are associated with large area through LAN/WAN. So automatically the secure security system of SCADA is necessary and for that in this paper we have propose a complete secure SCADA system base on the MiniSec, a secure network layer protocol for wireless sensor networks. By simulation we have shown that it will perform more securely then other SCADA system.

Abstract: Treated distillery effluent (TDE) generated through biomethanated distillery effluent was applied to arable land for augmenting agricultural production. The TDE contains considerable amount of organic matter and salt besides its high plant nutrients content. With this background, an attempt was made. Field experiments were conducted to study the long term effect of TDE and inorganic fertilizers on soil properties and yield of sugarcane in sandy loam soil during 2010-2011 and 2011-2012. The main plot treatments viz., TDE was applied at the rate of 1.25, 2.5, 3.75 and 5.0 lakh litres ha-1 for treatments were compared with control and the sub-plots viz., N, NP, NK, PK, NPK for fertilizer treatments were compared with control (no fertilizer). The results revealed that the application of TDE @ 5.0 lakh liters per ha had significantly increased the microbial population and enzymatic activities and this will indirectly improve the chemical and physical properties.

Abstract: Security is at the forefront of most networks, and many companies implement a comprehensive security policy encompassing many of the OSI layers, from application layer all the way down to IP security. However, one area that is often left untouched is hardening Layer 2 and this can open the network to a variety of attacks and compromises. Address resolution protocol is the mapping of IP address to the MAC address (layer 3 to layer2 mapping). ARP provides no authentication mechanism to the incoming request packets this is the reason that any client can forge an ARP message contains malicious information to poison the ARP cache of target host. There are many possible attacks on ARP which can make the communication unsecure such as man-in-the-middle (MITM), Denial of service (DOS), cloning attack, session hijacking and many more attacks.

Abstract: Wireless Power transmission (WPT) is a useful and convenient technology that can be employed to collect solar energy and concentrate on earth surface without the need for a wire connection called as solar power satellites (SPS). WPT via Resonance, for example, can be applied in the future to stable and CO2-free space-based solar power satellites. Overall, WPT will support both future energy production and the environment. This paper provides an analysis of wireless power transfer with an assessment of its practical applicability in terms of power range and efficiency. There are four types of satellites are accessed, one is primary and others are secondary. The secondary satellites are placed in triangular axis and primary satellite is placed at center of triangle for maximum power transfer .This assessment is obtained through the design and construction of a resonant inductive wireless powering system(in secondary satellites) suited to supply a main satellite transceiver(i.e. primary) for power range from 480-1920 watts with efficiency 80-90%. In this paper the formula for calculating the mutual inductance between circular coils with lateral and angular misalignment by using the approach of F. W. Grover is presented. This system is evaluated and designed by using MATLAB 2012a coding.

Abstract: Women as a class are oppressed and subdued by the hegemony of social patriarchy. Gender concerns and discourses service within the development bureaucracies dominated by men. The continued male dominance in science and technology is due in large measure to the enduring symbolic association of masculinity and technology by which cultural images and representations of technology converge with prevailing images of masculinity and power. The use of technology is always discriminatory. Women in technical roles often feel that the skills and feedback they bring to their jobs are not valued technology and development, are considered gender-neutral. Women are forced to seek employment in other areas which may have no relationship with their original experience, expertise and interest within the Masculinity- technology association, one can discern a series of highly gendered dichotomies.

Abstract: C Reactive Protein (CRP) is an acute phase protein whose levels are shown to be elevated in inflammation. Atherosclerosis is known to involve inflammation and dyslipidemia is a triggering factor in its development. In this study we tried to address any association that might exist between high sensitive C reactive protein (HSCRP) and lipid profile. In this study HSCRP and the Lipid profile parameters were estimated in thirty two patients who visited the Kasturba Hospital, Manipal. The results obtained indicate a strong significant positive correlation of total cholesterol (p value =0.0001) and triglycerides( p value= 0.023) with HSCRP and a negative correlation of HDL (p value =0.16) with the same. These results indicate that there may be a role for HSCRP in screening and risk stratification of atherosclerosis.

Abstract: A study was conducted at the Teaching and Research Farm of the University of Agriculture, Makurdi in 2007 and 2008 cropping seasons to monitor the effects of selected chemical stimulants on castor seed germination. Top paper (TP) method of seed germination according to Toogood (1993) was adopted. The chemical stimulants used included: 2, 4 – Dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2, 4-D) @ 200mg/L, coconut milk @ 15%, aluminum tetraflouride (AlF4) @ 200mg/L, fusiccoccin (FC) @ 200mg/L, potassium nitrate (KNO3) @ 15% and ethrel @ 200mg/L. The chemical stimulants were put into 9cm-diameter petridishes, each containing ten seeds of each castor accession. Data were collected on first germination count at 7 days after planting (DAP), final germination count at 14 DAP, pre-emergence mortality at 14 DAP, post-emergence mortality at 14 DAP, and germination speed index was used to quantify seed, seedling vigour and the planting value of seed lots. Results revealed that 15% of coconut milk followed by 15% of potassium nitrate and 200mg/L of aluminum tetraflouride produced significantly higher final germination count and germination speed index but lower seed mortality rate was observed with untreated seed lot (control) and with 1% of hydrogen peroxide. Germination characteristics were not significantly different in 2007 and 2008. Year x stimulant interaction on germination characteristics was not significant in all the castor accessions studied.

Abstract: The main constraint in message transmission is security. The key must be shared among users so that we have a secure transmission in group based message transmission. In this paper we discuss an important security problem that happens in mobile ad hoc network for key agreement in dynamic group. For a communication to be secure, a group key must be shared by all the members of the group. The key must be updated when any member of the group leaves existing group or become a new member of the existing group. In this paper, we establish a secured transmission. The main idea here is to spilt the existing network into smaller sub-network and each sub-network maintains its own keys. These keys should be updated when a existing node leave the network or when an new node joins the existing system. The nodes that have the high stability in the sub-network will be made as the Inner gateway member and among Inner gateway member the one that has high stability will be made as Outer gateway member.
