Abstract: Porous clay ceramics were fabricated by using kenaf powder waste (KP as a pore-forming agent PFA). The raw clay powder was characterized using XRF, XRD and TGA. Samples were prepared with different kenaf powder wastes (up to 30wt.%) using granulated powder mixtures and followed by hydraulic pressing. After drying, the ceramic green bodies were fired with different temperatures ranging from 1100 to 1175oC for 3 h with a heating rate of 5oC/min. The pore formation and microstructure in the samples were characterized using FE-SEM, while bulk densities, porosities and water absorption were determined using the Archimedes method. Their mechanical properties were also investigated in order to optimize the fabrication process itself. The results obtained showed shrinkages between 11.72-15.90% for the samples. The density values decreased from 1.30 -1.75g/cm3, while porosity was determined to be between 11.86 to 45.64 %. The tensile strength was in the range of 9.06 to 24.05MPa. These results prove that kenaf powder wastes (KP) are potentially capable to produce porous ceramic materials.

Abstract: The amount of rainfall received over an area is an important factor in assessing availability of water to meet various demands for agriculture, industry, irrigation, generation of hydroelectricity and other human activities. Over the study period of recent 30 years, trend values of monsoon average rainfall in Sylhet have decreased. This paper has measured the correlation coefficients between rainfall and time for Sylhet, where correlation coefficient for Sylhet is negative. In order to check the strength of linear relationship between rainfall and time, P-value has been measured. Due to various factors of Sylhet region of Bangladesh, there is a growing need to study the rainfall pattern, and also frequency of the heavy rainfall events. This study was checked annual average rainfall of 30 years for this region. It is hoped that this research may be of help to the concerned organizations and experts working on increasing rainfall problem in Chittagong.

Abstract: Angiogenesis that plays important roles in a variety of physiological processes is strictly delimited and finely tuned by a balance of pro-angiogenic and anti-angiogenic factors. Angiogenesis is essential for viability, growth, invasion and metastasis of tumors. The chorioallantoic membrane model is considered to be a valuable method for investigation of anti-angiogenic effects of drugs and other substances. The aim of the present study is to investigate the anti-angiogenic effects of a calcium channel blocker (diltiazem), a tyrosine kinase inhibitor (imatinib), and a vascular endothelial growth factor inhibitor (bevacizumab) with the means of the chicken chorioallantoic membrane (CAM) model.

Abstract: Noting that most of investigations about hydrogen production were done in a small bioreactor volume (from few milliliters – 5 liter) the aim of this investigation was to observe possibility of biological hydrogen production in a continuous culture in a big lab scale with volume of 25 liter. First task of investigation was to design and set up of bioreactor for continuous biological hydrogen production. The bacterial culture used was cultivated in a batch reactor from identified bacterial mixture taken from sludge of plant wastewater treatment. Cultivation was done under anaerobic condition. Synthetic minimal medium was used as a feeding, which contained 5 gram of glucose per liter. The current investigation demonstrates the possibility of hydrogen production by dark fermentative processes in a big lab scale.

Abstract: This work was carried out to determine the nutrient composition of soaked/dehulled/fermented rice, soybean and groundnut, and the sensory attributes of their blends. Rice (Oryza sativa); soybean (Glycine max. Merr) and groundnut (Arachis hypogea) were purchased from Nsukka in Enugu State, Nigeria. Local rice was washed, soaked for 3h and sundried and toasted. Soybean was blanched, fermented for 24h and dehulled, sundried and toasted. These foods were separately milled into fine flour. Shelled raw groundnut was blanched, roasted, dehulled and milled to obtain its paste. The treated samples were separately analysed for proximate and mineral composition using standard assay techniques. Blends of these samples were produced to provide 16g Nitrogen (N)/ 1000g cookies. These composites were used to prepare cookies. Wheat flour based cookies served as the control. Data generated were statistically analysed with standard analytical methods to separate mean differences. The proximate values for soybeans and groundnut showed similarity in crude protein (22 vs 23%, respectively) and crude fibre (3.73 vs 3.22%, respectively). They differed widely in fat (19.3 vs 49.8% respectively) and carbohydrate (45.5 vs 19.3% respectively). The rice flour showed the least values in protein and fat but higher value (72.9%) in carbohydrate than soybean and groundnut. In mineral analysis, the values for phosphorus, zinc and copper were comparable in the samples. Soybean and groundnut showed superior values in calcium (65 and 56mg/100g, respectively) to rice (22.4mg/100g). However, rice contain appreciably more iron (7.23mg/100g) than both soybean and groundnut (1.25 and 0.16mg/100g). Sensory evaluation showed that control had better acceptability when compared with the other cookies. However, the test cookies had good acceptability (rice/groundnut – 7.18 and rice/soybean – 6.43). their differences were not significant (P>0.05).

Abstract: Afzelia africana was identified in four selected communities in Idemili North Local Government Area as important wild vegetable tree. The tender leaves and shoots are known and consumed as delicacies in yam dish. This wild vegetable that substitutes cultivated vegetables in dry season is on the verge of extinction. This is because farmers produce and consume more commonly known vegetable. Planting, processing, food use and organoleptic attributes of its in-built product for food diversification is scanty in Nigeria literature. Afzelia africana tender leaves and shoots were collected from forest in the four study areas. The leaves and shoots were divided into four portions. One portion was sun-dried as control. The other three portions were exposed for 30 minutes to sun to wither, squeezed in partially burnt fresh banana leaves wrapped and allowed to ferment in locally made basket by inherent microflora for 4, 7 and 10 days. The fermented samples were sun-dried until they become brittle for pulverization into fine powder. These samples were used for both chemical analysis and formation of diets for adult rats for a 12-day N balance study and liver composition. The in-built product (yam dish) has a promising food diversification use. A 4-day fermentation of Afzelia africana leaves and shoots produced much more nutrient density and desirable organoleptic attributes. The dietary protein based on a 4-day fermented Afzelia africana leaves and shoots fed adult rats increased N digestibility and retention, net protein utilization and liver composition.

Abstract: Hydroxyapatite (HAp) was grown on sericin coated silk fibers and non-sericin coated silk fibers using simulated body fluid (SBF) at 37 C and two concentrations of 1.0standard SBF and 1.5standard SBF. The results showed that, for both concentrations of SBF, HAp grown on sericin coated silk fibers is more than that on non-sericin coated silk fibers. This indicates that sericin on the silk fiber plays an important role on the growth of HAp on the silk fibers. Moreover, the particle size of HAp grown in 1.5SBF concentration is smaller than that in 1.0SBF concentration.

Abstract: This paper presents a survey on Greedy Algorithm. This discussion is centered on overview of Activity Selection Problem and Task Scheduling Problem . A greedy algorithm is an algorithm that follows the problem solving heuristic of making the locally optimal choice at each stage with the hope of finding a global optimum. In many problems, a greedy strategy does not in general produce an optimal solution, but nonetheless a greedy heuristic may yield locally optimal solutions that approximate a global optimal solution in a reasonable time.Greedy algorithms determine the minimum number of coins to give while making change. These are the steps a human would take to emulate a greedy algorithm to represent 36 cents using only coins with values {1, 5, 10, 20}. The coin of the highest value, less than the remaining change owed, is the local optimum. (Note that in general the change-making problem requires dynamic programming or integer programming to find an optimal solution; However, most currency systems, including the Euro and US Dollar, are special cases where the greedy strategy does find an optimum solution.)

Abstract: As the personal computing industry pursues more user friendly, inexpensive user interfaces the concept of a touch less interface is worthy of inspection. Touch less is an SDK (software development kit) that allows users to create and experience multi-touch applications. The main idea is to offer users a new and cheap way of experiencing multi-touch capabilities, without the need of expensive hardware or software. All the user needs is a camera, which will track colored markers defined by the user. This next generation input technology allows the user to navigate without touching the surface. Computers are no longer relegated to use in the home study or on an office desk. These days people travel everywhere with their smart handsets, personal media players, e-books and tablet PCs. Coffee shops, restaurants, gyms, bus stops, plane terminals and even lavatories are fair usage environments for this new generation of touchless interface. If a customer is reading an e-book at the gym while on a treadmill and wants to turn a page, it would be a much easier to swipe across the device with a touchless gesture. A touch less interface can allow an automobile driver to safely adjust volume with the touch less swipe of hand without having to navigate through a complicated instrument cluster to find control buttons. The day will soon come when even the most commonplace home appliance, handheld devices, computing platform and industrial interface can be activated and controlled with the wave of a hand.

Abstract: There are many blood borne transfusion transmitted diseases. The most common among them is undoubtedly viral hepatitis B and hepatitis C. Patients with the history of multiple blood transfusions are at much greater risk of infection by contaminated blood products. Thalassemia major is one such condition where repeated blood transfusions are required. In our study a total of 218 patients were screened for Hepatitis B surface antigen and HCV antigen in their serum. 08 (3.66%) were found to be HBsAg positive and 18(8.25%) patients were found to be HCV positive by third generation ELISA technique. This was compared to the data of donor population which were considered healthy at the time of blood donation. HBsAg seropositivity was 1.98% and HCV seropositivity was 1.09% in this population. This result clearly indicates high incidence of transfusion transmitted hepatitis in thalassemic patients and much higher incidence of HCV infection compare to donor population is a matter of concern and research.

Abstract: Introduction: The main goal of root canal treatment is to prevent or heal formation of apical periodontitis. Complexity of root canal anatomy presents clinical challenges related to treatment outcome. The aim of this study was to investigate the morphology of the root canal system of mandibular 2nd premolar in north Indian subpopulation using periapical radiographs and CT Dentascan. No such study on Indian subpopulation is present till date. Methods: A total of 310 mandibular second premolar teeth were examined with the help of periapical radiographs and CT Dentascan in 158 patients, aged between 15 to 60. Number of roots and root canals were evaluated. Results: Among the teeth examined 6.4% (n=20) had more than one root. Regarding canal morphology, 3.8% (n=12) of the teeth had two canals, whereas 1.9 % (n= 6) had three canals and 1% had more than 3 canals. Conclusion: Most of the mandibular 2nd premolar had 1 root and 1 root canal. Less than 1 of 10 mandibular 2nd premolar had complex root canal system(2 or more canals).This study provides supplemental information about root canals of mandibular 2nd premolar in north Indian subpopulation.

Abstract: Conductive polymers or, more precisely, intrinsically conducting polymers (ICPs) are organic polymers that conduct electricity. Such compounds may have metallic conductivity or can be semiconductors. Electrical conductivity of conducting polymers can be tuned from insulating to metallic through proper doping. Examples of conducting polymers include polyaniline(PANI),Polypyrrole, Polythiophene, Polyacetelyne etc. Amongst the family of conducting polymers, PANI is unique due to its ease of synthesis, environmental stability, and simple doping/dedoping chemistry. They can offer high electrical conductivity through proper doping.Making PANI with suitable materials is another method to enhance it’s conductivity.Multiwalled Carbon Nanotube is one such highly pursued material due to its high electrical conductivity,mechanical strength and thermal stability. In the present work, PANI-MWCNT composite is prepared using Hyrochloric acid(HCL) & Camphor sulphonic acid(CSA) as dopants&compared it’s d.c. conductivity with PANI prepared using HCL &CSA as dopants.The FTIR, XRD& SEM analysis of the samples were done. PANI-MWCNT composite showed good conductivity compared to PANI samples.In the case of composite, aniline molecules are polymerized in the special gaps between MWCNT bundles.They are absorbed at the surface of MWCNTs&subsequently polymerized.The MWCNT may serve as conducting bridges connecting the isolated PANI.The sample prepared with HCL as dopant showed more conductivity than that of the sample prepared using CSA. Comparatively higher d.c. conductivity of HCL doped sample may be due to the presence of lighter dopant ions ie CI—ions in HCL.The light weight CI-- ions have greater mobility than SO3--- ions in CSA.

Abstract: Computational vision-based fire and flame detection has drawn significant attention in the past decade with camera surveillance systems becoming ubiquitous. Signal and image processing methods are developed for the detection of fire, flames and smoke in open and large spaces with a range of up to 30m to the camera in visible-range (IR) video. This paper proposes a new approach to computational vision-based fire and flame detection by using a compound algorithm and a decision fusion framework with Naïve Bayes classifier as classification tool. The compound algorithm consists of several sub-algorithms, the fusion network is to fuse the results obtained by each of these sub-algorithms and Naïve Bayes classifier is useful for the final classification. This approach is to improve the accuracy of fire and flame detection in videos and to reduce the false alarm rate to a great extent.

Abstract: The Fresnel transform is applied on an ideal wavelet basis for (ℝ), the -splines [1], which results into the -splines.In digital holography the image recorded on a has to be reconstructed. Though the underlying idea of Fresnelets are given in [2], a detailed mathematical derivation is provided here. As a special instance of Fresnelets, the Franklin Fresnelets are considered. To meet the requirements of retrieving the image,the Fresnelets are more effective than the wavelets derived from the -spline scaling functions.

Abstract: Background: Prognostic factors of breast cancer not only act as a guide to overall prognosis but also determine the need for adjuvant therapy.These factors are interrelated and hormone receptor status is an important determinant of prognosis of ca breast. Objective: The aim of this study was to correlate the various prognostic factors in breast cancer.Tumor size (T) ,nodal status (N) ,grade of the tumour and ER PR status were taken as prognostic factors. Materials and Methods: Mastectomy Specimen of fifty patients of carcinoma breast were studied to ascertain it’s size,status of margin,histology of the tumor ,lymph node metastasis to determine modified Richards Bloomson’s(MRB) score and Nottingham Prognostic Index(NPI). The Estrogen and progesterone receptor status was identified, data was analysed statistically by using Chi-square test and conclusion was drawn. Results: Most of the patients were 40-60 yr of age group, however most were postmenopausal and 40% of the patients had no metastasis in axillary lymph nodes Tumour was hormone receptor positive in two third of the patients.Hormone receptor positivity decreased with increase in size of the tumour , axillary lymph node positivity and grade of the tumour. Hormone receptor positivity increased as the age advances and positivity was more in postmenopausal as compared to premenopausal. Axillary lymph node involvement were increased with size of the tumour also increased size of the tumour leads to increase in the grading of the tumour. Conclusion: More number of patients are presenting in early stage as majority of patients have operable breast cancer. Most of the patients were between 40-60 yr of age which suggest shift towards younger age groups as compared to the traditional presentation of older age. Tumour was hormone receptor positive in two third of the patients. Small size, low grade and tumours without axillary lymph node metastasis have more chances of receptor positivity.

Abstract: Before converting raw materials to a finished product we need an accurate design of the product and also data required for manufacturing. If the design is not accurate then defects will occur in the manufactured product; small mistakes in designing a product makes the manufactured product useless so more amount time is allotted for designing a new product (or) for modifying the existed design. In this work the use of a software namely Pro/E for designing a progressive die to manufacture cup for the oil filter has been incorporated. A progressive die is a multiple station die. In this work authors have designed a progressive die which has two stages of operation. The former operation is piercing and is followed by blanking. In both operations a finite volume of metal is removed from the sheet metal. If the final product happens to be removed portion then the operation is blanking, on other hand if pierced sheet metal is the final product then the operation is piercing. Both the operations are performed simultaneously in a single stroke of press, thus enabling the user to obtain the final product in a single stroke. This design procedure can also be extended for manufacturing washers for M-series bolts by modifying the punch and die plate dimensions.

Abstract: Bronchogenic carcinoma is undoubtedly one of the major killer diseases worldwide. Pulmonary cytology is a simple and resourceful method of early diagnosis of bronchogenic carcinoma. The use of bronchoscope has increased the variety of diagnostic specimen obtainable and extended the scope of cyto-pathology. We carried out a study to demonstrate the value of cytological examination of bronchial brushing and washing in diagnosis of bronchogenic carcinoma in our settings. 69 patients of clinically and radiologically suspected brochogenic carcinoma attending the Dr. B. Borooah Cancer Institute (Guwahati) as well as in Dept. of Pathology, Gauhati Medical College and hospital were selected for one year. Out of total 69 cases bronchial brushing carried out in 42 cases and bronchial washing carried out in 27 cases. In bronchial brushing cytology a positive diagnosis of malignancy was established in 30 cases (71.43%) and in bronchial washing diagnosis of malignancy was found in 8 cases. Bronchoscopic biopsy was successfully done in 40 cases and histopathological diagnosis of malignancy was made in 29 cases. Out of 29 cases of carcinoma confirmed by histology, cytology was consistent in 26 cases. The bronchial cytology revealed sensitivity (89.96%), specificity (90.9%), positive predictive rate (96.3%), accuracy (90%), false negative rate (10.34%) and false positive rate (9.1%). During the bronchoscopic procedure there was no major complication or fatality. Thus bronchial brushing and washing has firmly established its role in the early diagnosis of brochogenic carcinoma because it is safe, rapid and cost –effective and importantly gives a higher rate of sensitivity and accuracy.

Abstract: This paper studies a loss and delay queueing model under the restriction of N-policy for the situations where arrival and service of customers are correlated and follows a bivariate Poisson process. When there is no customer present in the system then the server goes on vacation and returns back in the system whenever the specified N (>1) or more customers are accumulated. The server may breakdown only if it is working and is immediately sent to a repair facility to restore its capability as before failure. For steady state various operational characteristics have been derived. Sensitivity analysis has also been made to examine the effect of different parameters so as to facilitate optimal control policy.

Abstract: Adders are the basic building blocks of any processor or data path application. In adder design carry generation is the critical path. To reduce the power consumption of data path we need to reduce number of transistors of the adder. Carry Select Adder is one of the fast adder used in many data path applications. There is a chance to reduce the area, power and delay in the CSLA structure. The proposed design is implemented by using D-latch instead of using RCA cascade structure for Cin=0 or Cin=1. In this proposed design power and delay is reduced to 10.8% and 4.6% for 8bit, 17.73% and 49.3% for 16bit, 20% and 44.5% for 32bit, 21.9% and 59.8% for 64bit when compared to the Regular Carry Select Adder (CSLA). Power and delay is reduced to 4.43% and 37.23% for 8bit, 12.37% and 37.8% for 16bit, 14.06% and 45.68% for 32bit, 14.43% and 50.57% for 64bit when compared to the modified CSL adders (BEC). The delay is reduced 37.24% for 8bit, 60.4% for 16bit, 61.6% for 32bit, 14.43% and 56.74% for 64bit when compared to the modified CSL adder (WITHOUT USING MULTIPLEXER).

Abstract: The word Computer is derived from the word “to compute”, which means ‘to calculate’. Therefore, many people think that a computer is just another calculating machine- a fast calculator. But it is much more than that. It is not just a fast calculating device. It can perform a variety of different operations apart from arithmetic calculations. A computer is now regarded as a multi-purpose tool that is constantly evolving. It can be used also used for knowledge sharing. It can be used to handle audio and video information. It can also be used for communicating messages. Thus, it can be used for a variety of different purposes. Early computers were used to perform arithmetic calculations at fast speed, but now they are used in almost all to represent facts, things, concepts of our life. A computer can be defined as a machine that receives some kind of data, process it, and produces some kind of output. Computers perform data processing under the direction of instructions given by us. These instructions can be stored in a computer. A computer is a machine that can solve problems for us by executing instruction given to it. In this era of technology revolution and with a great boom in the field of information technology, knowledge of computers becomes very essential for every one. Information technologies have played a vital role in higher education for decades.

Abstract: The electricity of sensor nodes in wireless sensor networks is very limited, Sensor nodes are often scattered outdoors and their energy consumption depends heavily on the area of coverage and network topology. In the related research, LEACH routing algorithm randomly selects cluster heads in each round to form a cluster network, which may cause additional power consumption and inability to maintain the optimal routes for data transmission. The cluster allocation and routing algorithm proposed in this study is based on the cluster architecture of LEACH, and the objective is to produce clusters with more sensor nodes to balance energy consumption of cluster head and routing prevents the cluster heads from exhausting electric power by forwarding data through detoured routes. The experimental results show that the proposed algorithm can efficiently increase the coverage ratio as well as lifetime of wireless sensor networks.

Abstract: The System of Rice Intensification (SRI), developed in Madagascar is gaining increasing credence and momentum as the farmers are now using its methods to raise their rice production while also reducing their use of external inputs and production costs. This paper focuses on this agronomic opportunity that can be particularly beneficial for resource-limited households. In the sample area positive impact of SRI technology was observed on sample farmers followed the suggested wider spacing of 25×25cm or 30×30cm,and by using 8-12 days seedlings, weed management, and sample farmers completely adopted the suggested water management practice, weed management practice and by applying the suggested quantity of organic manure. Saving on seed cost as the seed requirement is less,saving on water as irrigated, higher yields due to profuse tillering, increased panicle length and grain weight. However, the farmers expressed difficulty in adopting SRI on two counts, viz., labour scarcity and weed menace. These constraints have to be addressed to enable wider adoption of SRI technology by more number of rice cultivators.

Abstract: Principal objective of image enhancement is to process an image so that result is more suitable than original image for specific application. Digital image enhancement techniques provide a multitude of choices for improving the visual quality of images. The existing contrast enhancement algorithms such as local, global, partial, bright and dark contrast stretching, Adaptive HE techniques occasionally result in artifacts such as halo effects in sharp boundaries or noise effects and also over enhancement which results a spurious details of the image and unnatural effects in the processed images. These drawbacks increase for images taken under poor illumination conditions.

Abstract: The aim of this study was to review the appearance of normal patterns of left coronary artery, its anatomic variants and anomalies and to assess their incidence in subjects of North India who underwent 64-slice Computed Tomographic Coronary Angiography (CT-CA) for suspected or known coronary artery disease (CAD). This study was carried out in the Departments of Anatomy and Radiodiagnosis, KGMU, U.P, Lucknow, India. Fifty CT Coronary Angiograms of routine subjects of either sex and of different age groups coming to the department of Radiodiagnosis were evaluated prospectively to see the normal and variant anatomy of Left Coronary Artery (LCA) regarding its origin, length of main trunk and branching pattern. In all the cases LCA arose either below the Sinotubular (ST) junction from Left Posterior Aortic Sinus (LPAS) or from ST junction except one which demonstrated a high take off from tubular part of ascending aorta. The LCA had a mean length of 7.11 ± 3.04 mm. The two main branches of LCA are Left Circumflex (LCX) artery and Left Anterior Descending (LAD) artery. This study revealed that the main trunk of LCA bifurcated into LCX artery and LAD artery in 38 (76%) subjects. The artery was seen to be trifurcating in 12 (24%) cases with the Ramus Intermedius (RI) being the third artery.

Abstract: Nutritional attributes of Fufu-fermented cassava flour was improved through blending with 10, 20, 30 and 40% African Yam Bean (Sphenostylis stenocarpa) flour and the products were subjected to proximate analysis, pasting properties and sensory evaluation, with 100% cassava fufu flour as control. The results showed that the African Yam bean - Fufu flour contained 6.50% protein, 1.08% ash, 0.65% fibre, 0.26% fat at 10% level of inclusion and this increased to 16.45, 1.22, 0.90 and 1.24% respectively at 40% level of inclusion. However, the carbohydrate contents decreased from 91.51 - 80.87% at 10% and 40% inclusion of African yam bean flour respectively. All pasting characteristics with the exception of pasting temperature and peak time decreased with increased African Yam Bean inclusion. Peak viscosity (340.22 - 203.34) RVU, final viscosity (300.06 - 180.33) RVU, setback (79.72 - 39.13) RVU, break down (133.22 – 88.00) RVU, trough at 950 C (220.00 – 141.20) RVU at 10% and 40% level of inclusion of African Yam Bean respectively. There was a slight significant difference (p≤ 0.05) in overall acceptability between 10% level of inclusion and the control (100% cassava flour). The values ranged from 6.2 – 7.9 respectively. Generally, the rating of all the sensory attributes assessed reduced with increased in the inclusion of AYB flour.

Abstract: This is focused on the analysis of plastic flow in two plate injection mould. Motor rare housing component is designed with multi cavity as the plastic part in the two plate injection mould which is used in domestic motor. Mould flow analysis software is used to perform the analysis of filling, wrap and best gate location. This will discuss the flow of molten plastic inside the injection mould. The analysis begins with the origin of the flow channels such as Barrel, nozzle, sprue, runners, and gates until the cavity is completely filled. In this analysis, plastic flow behavior is studied together with parameters settings in plastic injection mould, Based on the analysis improvement has been made to the part design and feed systems in the mould. This includes the location of the gate at the part design, size of sprue, runners and gates. From the analysis also, CAE helps to determine the part defects that might occurred during plastic injection molding process such as Short shot, unequal filling, over filling, welding lines and others. From that, the optimum parameters setting are selected in order to get a quality plastic. So this will explain the plastic flow analysis clearly.


Abstract: Domestic Violence is thus the most prevalent, and yet the least reported crime in society. It is very unfortunate that we have to keep reminding everyone that violence against women is increasing. Bettered women are only too often reluctant to report that they have been beaten up because of social stigma, guilt, shame and loyalty. They may lose the economic support of their husband on harness their career. Also, battered women do not report their problems to the police because they usually get a negative response (Ekelaar, 1991).

Abstract: A Common Indian cat fish, Clarias batrachus Linneaus was treated with Lead Acetate for sub-acute and chronic exposure to the xenobiotic. The sub acute study included 3 days and 7 days exposure to different concentrations of lead acetate, while chronic study included exposure to 15 ppm lead acetate for 105 days. In all the cases tissues from Gills, Bones, Liver, Blood, Kidneys, Muscles, Skin and GI tract were removed and analyzed by AAS to find lead accumulation. The Bio-Concentration Factor (BCF) was calculated .The BCF varies from organ to organ. Additionally, X-rays photography was made on the chronic treated fishes from time to time, to see whether skeletal tissue is a target of the heavy metal or not. The Co-relation Co-efficient ( r’) in these tissues between Lead treatment and Lead accumulation was found to be highly significant suggesting it both as a dose-dependent and time-dependent process.

Abstract: Performance appraisal has increasingly become part of a more strategic approach to integrating HR activities and business policies and may now be seen as a generic term covering a variety of activities through which organizations seek to assess employees and develop their competence, enhance performance and distribute rewards (Fletcher, 2001). Thus, both practice and research have moved away from a narrow focus on psychometric and evaluation issues to developmental performance appraisal (e.g., Fletcher, 2001; Lefkowitz, 2000; Levy and Williams, 2004; Waal, 2003), which may be defined as any effort concerned with enriching attitudes, experiences, and skills that improves the effectiveness of employees (Boswell and Boudreau, 2002). Performance appraisal is a widespread, very expensive, counterproductive exercise. It is typically conducted with good intentions to manage and improve the performance of individual employees, and lead to enhanced overall organizational efficiency, effectiveness, and productivity. Unfortunately it is an exercise in futility. This paper explores why formal performance appraisal and performance pay fail in their objectives as components of an organization’s performance management program, and why they should be abolished .In recent years it is necessary to find more scientific, effective & fair assessment method, to examine the current performance appraisal for the success & failure of the organization.

Abstract: The study was conducted at Delhi International Airport during 2010-2011 for finding out the ways for improving employee engagement. The reason behind the study was the warning signal received during a routine six monthly employee engagement survey. As per the result of survey indicates there was a significant reduction in the level of employee engagement. Earlier surveys were conducted during the airport project implementation phase and this was the first survey conducted after airport went to operational phase. The result of this survey was alarming and it was decided to start immediate remedial measures. Then different committees were formed and many brainstorming sessions were carried out to find out various drivers which are contributing towards employee engagement. These drivers were analyzed to see which will be the proper one to be addressed by considering the cost of implementation and the one which was worst affected due to the changes undergone during the transition of airport from project to operation phase. “Communication” was identified by experts and top management as the factor which is to be addressed immediately. So it was also decided to find out scientifically whether there is a relationship between internal communication and employee engagement. The results of the scientific study had shown the existence of positive relationship between them. The study was focused on the main characteristics of the engaged employees such as commitment, meaningfulness of their (employee’s) work and discretionary effort. Based on these results action plans were formulated and implemented for immediate improvement in the level of employee engagement.

Abstract: The rapid growth of network utilization raises a new concept as wireless sensor networks (WSN). Sensor networks consist of spatially distributed autonomous sensor to monitor physical or environmental conditions (i.e. temperature, sound pressure etc.) to develop area monitoring, air quality monitoring, and forest fire detection kind of applications. The major design constraint with WSN is resources utilization. Subsequently, work need to perform clustering and routing using node’s information for data transmission. The work propose a novel multi cluster policy to reduce energy consumption during clustering process and overcome routing overhead on routing nodes. The proposed policy also avoids frequent election process during clustering by developing seniority table. The approach also investigates network traffic and nodes energy condition before head selection to develop dynamic clustering policy. Furthermore, work also proposed that, any variation in the network can be intimated through fault tolerant message.

Abstract: Wrong attitudes, beliefs and values are adversely affecting the natural environment today. In this research work the attitude towards the environment of two groups of people living in suburban and urban environments is examined and categorized as biospheric, altruistic and egoistic. The data obtained from questionnaires given to participants is used for correlation studies between the environmental attitudes of participants and the higher order values they uphold. Results show that urban respondents exhibit egoistic attitudes while suburban participants who are in close contact with nature show biospheric attitudes. Significant correlations are seen between egoistic attitude and value of self-enhancement (0.73) in case of urban participants and between biospheric attitude and the value of self-transcendence (0.59) for suburban participants. This is probably because the value of Self transcendence is a form of environmental consciousness which may develop into Higher Consciousness.

Abstract: The euryhaline fish Oreochromis mossambicus was exposed to three sub-lethal concentrations of Cadmium ion, for 7 days to evaluate the role of protein catabolism in fulfilling the immediate energy needs of fishes under Cadmium ion induced stress. The levels of tissue protein, free amino acid, plasma ammonia and the activities of aspartate aminotransferase (AST), alanine aminotransferase (ALT) and glutamate dehydrogenase (GDH) were estimated in some of the vital tissues like gills, liver, kidney, muscle and blood of O. mossambicus. The rates of ammonia excretion, oxygen consumption and ammonia quotient (AQ) were also estimated. The significant (P< 0.05) decrease in the levels of proteins concomitant with remarkable increase in the level of free amino acids, ALT, AST and GDH activities in these vital tissues of fish species elucidated the protein catabolism as one of the main mechanism of meeting out the immediate energy demand of the fishes in condition of cadmium exposure. The AQ in treated fish increased significantly (P< 0.05), which indicate a marked increase in the catabolism of proteins during cadmium ions induced stress.

Abstract: A Mobile Ad hoc Network (MANET) is an instant infrastructure less self-organizing network, in which each node functions as an end host and a wireless relay. This form of wireless network is created by mobile nodes without any existing or fixed infrastructure. The nodes in the MANET need mutually exclusive identities before participating in any form of communication. In particular, each end host in the MANET needs to be uniquely addressed so that the packets can be relayed hop by hop and delivered ultimately to the destination. Existing routing protocols in MANETs have all assumed a priori that mobile nodes are configured with a valid (conflict free) network address. Because of the multi-hop routing, the MAC address at the link layer level cannot serve for this purpose. On the other hand, address configuration in wired networks, such as DHCP, requires the presence of a centralized DHCP server. It does not work well for MANETs due to the mobility of the nodes and the lack of a central authority. There have been several approaches proposed for dynamic addressing scheme. However, mostly all approaches depend on broadcasting for address solicitation and/or duplicate address detection. As a result, several types of security threats in dynamic IP configuration can be observed. Address allocation schemes can be classified into state full schemes or stateless schemes. The state full schemes keep state information in a database that keeps track of which addresses have been assigned to which computers. Stateless schemes let the computers select an address by themselves and perform a procedure, called Duplicate Address Detection (DAD).Thus this paper focuses on the various IP allocation schemes for MANETs with and without DAD.

Abstract: There is an increasing demand for microwave systems to meet the emerging telecommunication challenges with respect to size, performance and cost. This project describes a general design technique for micro strip low pass filters that are used to convey microwave frequency signals. The parasitic problems of X- band can be adjusted through impedance ratio K, which can enhance the performance of harmonic suppression. The ADS simulation tool is used to design an X-band stepped impedance low pass filter of range 8-12 GHz. This simulation results show that the filter works on 10GHz at the center frequency and achieves attenuation of 60dB, which effectively suppresses the parasitic bands. To attain the filter with these characteristics, Insertion Loss Method is performed. Compared to other filter types, this design works very well with excellent harmonic suppression performance.

Abstract: The Society of Automotive Engineers organizes student design competitions to inculcate in students the general practices of good Engineering. One such student design activity is the SAEINDIA BAJA event held each year in Pithampur, India the aim of which is to build an All Terrain Vehicle as per the constraints given by the organizers. The growing popularity of the competition coupled with the need to design safe, sturdy and sustainable ATV has led to the origin of the idea of the paper. The process of dynamic stress analysis is expensive and time consuming, and simulating the problem statement is unnecessarily tedious at an initial design stage. So it is advantageous to carry out the static stress analysis first, which offers a simplistic simulation criterion of the problem statement and requires a lower computational time. This analysis will validate the safety of the preliminary design and help the designer understand the changes that need to be incorporated in the design. The paper aims to give an introduction to this static stress analysis method using ANSYS APDL 12.0, covering topics such as impact force determination, loading points, convergence of nodes, and the mesh size dependence of generated stress.

Abstract: In this paper, the design and implementation of multiple power supplied fertilizer sprayer has been presented. The proposed system is the modified model of the two stroke petrol engine powered sprayer which minimizes the difficulties of the existing power sprayer such as operating cost, changing of fuel etc. The two stroke petrol engine has been replaced by a direct current motor and operated by the electrical energy stored in the battery attached to the unit. The battery can be charged by solar panel during the presence of sun. It could also be operated on direct current during rainy and cloudy weather conditions. This system can be used for spraying pesticides, fungicides, fertilizers and paints. The proposed system has been tested and compared with theoretical values of current and charging time. From the results it is found that the time taken to charge the full battery of capacity 12V, 7Ah has required 16.67 hours. The fully charged battery could be used to spray 575 liters pesticides. Which is approximately covers 5-6 acres of land. It is also found that, if we charge the battery for a day, then it covers approximately 200 liters of pesticides which in turn covers 2 to 2.5 acres of land. The developed systems initial cost is little more as compared to conventional sprayer but the running cost of the system is all most zero in other words minimum.

Abstract: In this paper we propose a novel frame work for face recognition in real-time environments using the Principal component Analysis (PCA)-based face recognition methodology. The proposed frame work is developed by three schemes namely, nonlinearity clustering, eigen vector mapping and relationship learning. In the beginning, a clustering algorithm is proposed as a preprocessing step. After clustering, the very low resolution (VLR), High resolution (HR), illuminated image (IL) pairs in every cluster is approximate nonlinear, i.e., the relationship will be approximately represented by a matrix. Then second resultant matrix spaces are converted into eigen vectors mapping for supporting nonlinear problem in real face images. Finally a kernel PCA model is used to learn relationship mapping, with completely different constraints. We develop a new information constraint is designed for human-based recognition and machine-based recognition to adopt real-time environment. The system proceeding the relationship learning between VLR images to the HR image space as well as IL image space for nonlinear problem. Based on learning map SR algorithm can reconstruct the image space and so measures the reconstruction error, rather than the existing algorithms that perform error the VLR space.

Abstract: Honeypots are a modern approach to network security. A honeypot is used in the area of internet security and cryptography. It is a resource, which is intended to be attacked and compromised to gain more information about the attacker and the used implementations. It can be deployed to attract and divert an attacker from their real targets. Honeypots have the big advantage that they do not generate false alerts as each observed traffic is doubtful, because no productive components are running on the system. This fact enables the system to log every byte that flows through the network through and from the honeypot, and to relate this data with other sources to draw a picture of an attack and the attacker.

Abstract: Content based image retrieval is a technique which uses visual contents like shape, color and texture to retrieve images from large scale image databases. In content based image retrieval shape is one of the primitive feature for image retrieval. Many images are classified and detected based on shape description. In this paper we present the methods for retrieving images from the large database which consist of engineering objects or models. The proposed work uses the shape information from an image along with 3D information. The 3D information can be obtained by obtaining depth map, for this a linear approximation procedure that can capture the depth information using the idea of shape from shading has been used. Retrieval of objects is done using a similarity measure that combines shape and the depth information.

Abstract: This cross-sectional study was conducted in 50 liver disease patients and 50 non-liver disease patients, who were examined clinically and confirmed sonographically for liver involvement. All the parameters of Conventional Liver Function Tests (CLFTs) including serum Bilirubin, SGPT, SGOT, ALP, Total Protein and Albumin were estimated and compared in liver disease and non-liver disease patients. Data was analyzed by non-parametric Mann-Whitney test and statistical significance was calculated. It showed that serum bilirubin was highly significant (p<0.001), while SGPT and SGOT were raised in liver disease patients, but they were not statistically significant (p>0.05). So none of the individual test can predict the liver disease and at times it can lead to a confusing situation between liver disease and non-liver disease. The present study concludes that more sensitive and specific parameters are needed to correctly diagnose liver disease and at the same time it must rule out non-liver diseases.

Abstract: In this project a hospital management system is developed by using a Bluetooth connection .Usually in the hospitals and medical clinics Wireless LAN(WLAN) or Wi-Fi is used for data transfer and network connection. The Electro-Magnetic Frequency (EMF) generated from the WLAN ranges from 0 to 300 GHz. Such a high range of frequency is very harmful for the patients since the Wi-Fi has been anecdotally linked to electromagnetic hypersensitivity. However the Bluetooth uses the microwave spectrum in the range of 2.4 GHz and 2.4835 GHz.The radiated output power of the Bluetooth devices vary from 1 to 100 MW and can operate continuously or sporadically.So total exposure to the EMF radiation is quite variable. Thus the Bluetooth device has never been linked to any serious health hazard. Implementation of the project in reality will help to reduce the manpower and in the efficient management of the hospital. The patients can take appointment just by using an embedded Bluetooth device without standing in a queue or waiting at the Appointment Desk. The nurse updates each and every details of the patient regularly to the main server so that by the help of the Bluetooth connection both the doctor and the patient’s relatives can fetch whichever documents or information they want regarding that patient.

Abstract: Even though there is a number of condition monitoring and analysis techniques, researchers are in search of a simple and easy way to monitor vibration of a gearbox, which is an important power transmission component in any machinery. In gearboxes, load fluctuations on the gearbox and gear defects are two major sources of vibration. Further, at times, measurement of vibration in the gearbox is not easy because of the inaccessibility in mounting the vibration transducers. Techniques such as wear and debris analysis, vibration monitoring and acoustic emissions require accessibility to the gearbox either to collect samples or to mount the transducers on or near the gearbox. But dusty environment, background noise, structural vibration etc. may hamper the quality and efficiency of these techniques. Hence, there is a need to monitor the gearbox away from its actual location, which can be achieved through Motor current signature analysis (MCSA). An efficient and new but non intrusive method to detect the fluctuation in gear load may be the motor current signature analysis (MCSA). Motor current signature analysis (MCSA) has been the most recent addition as a non-intrusive and easy to measure condition monitoring technique. This analysis system can be used for measuring the characteristics for a perfectly working gearbox and use the data as a standard for measuring faults and defects in other gearboxes.

Abstract: Now a days congestion in computer network is becoming an important issue. Variable-structure Congestion-control Protocol (VCP) and Double Packet Congestion Control Protocol (DPCP) operating in wireless networks are potentially faced with some challenges of performance degradation. These sources are: 1) The oscillatory behaviour of VCP in the presence of link bandwidth estimation errors is not good. 2) VCP exhibits poor fairness characteristics in high delay networks. 3) DPCP faces deployment obstacles in encrypted wireless networks due to the fact that it relies on partial information in the TCP header and the TCP header information is lost when crossing encryption boundaries. In this paper we propose an alternative congestion control protocol to which we refer as Enhanced Variable-structure Congestion-control Protocol for Encrypted Wireless (EVCP-EW) networks. It does so by passively utilizing the IP Identification field of a packet header instead of the TCP header in conjunction with a heuristic algorithm to differentiate between different sources of loss.

Abstract: Crosstalk in VLSI interconnects is a major constraint in DSM and UDSM technology. Among various strategies followed for its minimization, shield insertion between aggressor and victim lines is one of the most prominent options. Placing shields around a victim signal line is a common way to enhance signal integrity while minimizing delay uncertainty. This paper analyzes the extent of crosstalk in capacitive coupled interconnects and minimizes the same through shield insertion. Also design guidelines for shielding in the presence of power/ground (P/G) noise are illustrated in this paper. The effects of P/G noise on crosstalk is analyzed for different line lengths, line widths, and interconnect driver resistances. Considering the P/G noise, a shield line can degrade the signal integrity due to increased P/G noise coupling on the victim line. A RC interconnect model is used to investigate the effects of coupling capacitance on the crosstalk noise. Physical spacing and shield insertion are compared in terms of the delay on the victim line for several technology parameters. Dual port SRAM cells contain a second set of access transistors designed to allow a second read from the cell. As device sizes shrink, the spacing between conductors is reduced to the point where crosstalk between second pair of access runners within the same cell area of a dual port device becomes a significant design issue. Techniques for reducing capacitive coupling between these access lines are considered here. Additionally, the effects of technology scaling on P/G noise and shielding efficiency between bit lines are discussed, and related design tradeoffs are addressed. Design tools used to build circuit schematic is Cadence Virtuoso Design Platform, HSpice Simulator for simulation of schematics and CosmosScope (CScope) for observing the waveforms.

Abstract: A global climate model (GCM) should be able to reproduce features of the distribution of the regional to local-scale climate in which it is applied. Such features include: the climatological mean, correlation, monthly or daily variance, thresholds, extremes etc, of the distribution of climate variables of interest. Most researchers need to know how GCM simulations vary depending on climatic variables, the choice of GCM and place. These variations can be understood by studying the descriptive statistics above, and inference can be made based on these sample statistics. However, there is no standard approach to test the features above in order to determine the skill of GCMs. In this paper, we focus on correlation and regression to evaluate the performances of five coupled global climate models for simulating monthly rainfall, minimum and maximum temperatures at five stations in northeastern Zimbabwe. We use observed historic climatic data (rainfall and air temperature) as well as downscaled model predictions of the same parameters. The global climate models used were the same as those used by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) in formulating the IPCC Special Report on Emissions Scenarios (SRES). The GCMs were evaluated by comparing observed historic climatic data with hindcast downscaled model predictions.

Abstract: In this paper, I have introduced a new patent rule for computing ARC LENGTH of an ELLIPTICAL CURVE. It is based on Geometrical Theorems. The method is fast and simplest of all other methods meant for Elliptical Arc Length. The earlier methods existing for computing Elliptical Arc Length like Riemann sum (by integration), Numerical Integration, Bernoullis method, Eulers method, and other methods in this sequence till now, recently by Arvind Narayan(September-2012) provide approximate value and have more variables and involve more steps to compute.. The peculiarity of this method is that no smoothness (differentiability) of the curve is required, just the extremities of arc is enough to determine the exact arc length of the elliptical curve. The present method not only provides a formula, but also, it will serve as the precious tool for the subjects relevant to the Elliptical Arc Length.

Abstract: Nanofluids are potential heat transfer fluids with enhanced thermo physical properties and heat transfer performance can be applied in many devices for better performances (i.e. energy, heat transfer and other performances). Evaluating the heat transfer enhancement due to the use of nanofluids has recently become the center of interest for many researchers. This newly introduced category of cooling fluids containing ultrafine nanoparticles (1–100 nm) has displayed fascinating behavior during experiments including increased thermal conductivity and augmented heat transfer coefficient compared to a pure fluid. In this paper, a comprehensive literature on the applications and challenges of nanofluids have been compiled and reviewed in Automobile sector. Latest up to date literatures on the applications and challenges in terms of PhD and Master thesis, journal articles, conference proceedings, reports and web materials have been reviewed and reported. Recent researches have indicated that substitution of conventional coolants by nanofluids appears promising in Automobile radiator. Nanofluids have great potential to improve automotive and heavy –duty engine cooling rates by increasing the efficiency, lowering the weight and reducing the complexity of thermal management. Alternatively, it is beneficial to design more compact cooling system with smaller and lighter automobile radiators.

Abstract: The objective of this paper is to develop a comparative analysis of rectangular and triangular cylindrical microstrip patch antenna. In this study we would like to take into account the problems of resonance and radiation of cylindrical rectangular and triangular microstrip patch antenna. Design procedure involves parameters related to cylindrical microstrip elements to realize the desired resonant frequency, input impedance, radiation patterns etc. Transmission line model is used to calculate the input impedance of the patch, while cavity model is used to calculate its radiation pattern. For a cylindrical-rectangular microstrip antenna, it is observed that the beam-width, resonant frequency, and resonant resistance decrease with cylinder radius. The bandwidth is not sensitive to curvature but it decreases as substrate permittivity increases. Triangular microstrip antennas are a good substitute for rectangular microstrip antennas, especially in microstrip array designs, due to their similar radiation properties and because the triangular patch is physically smaller than the rectangular patch

Abstract: The present study was carried out to investigate the mass transfer kinetics and optimization during osmotic dehydration of beetroot. The samples were osmotically treated in different hypertonic sugar solution (55, 65 and 75 0 Brix) with salt concentration of 5 % (w/v), at different solution temperature (30, 45 & 60 °C). Mass transfer kinetics was modeled according to Magee and Azuara model, and kinetic parameters were calculated. It was found that the magee’s model was appropriate for predicting water loss (WL) and solute gain (SG), while Azuara’s model fitted water loss as well as solute gain (SG) data represented more accurately the condition of the complete process close to equilibrium. Quadratic regression equations describing effects of process variables on water loss, solute gain and weight reduction were developed and optimization of osmotic dehydration was done using response surface methodology (RSM). The regression analysis revealed that linear terms of all process parameters have a significant effect on all the responses. The optimum conditions were found to be as sugar of 75 0Brix with 5% salt, solution temperature of 47.70 0 C and immersion time of 120 min at constant osmotic solution to sample ratio of 4:1. At these optimum values, water loss, solute gain and weight reduction were observed as 28.78, 4.42 and 24.36 (g/100 g of initial mass) respectively.

Abstract: In an urban area, users use spaces on the basis of preferences and importances given. User preferences are usually common for a society due to common socio-cultural background. The paper attempts to understand the differences in user preferences of residents of two select localities in a developing city of Nagpur in India by studying the relationship between their spatial cognition and spatial configuration. Spatial configuration is quantified by axial line modeling based on space syntax theory. Local integration (R3), global integration (Rn) and connectivity are considered as parameters of spatial configuration. Interpretive parameters are synergy and intelligibility. The correlation study between parameters of cognition such as frequency of recognition, frequency of use and syntactic parameters is done. It has highlighted the differences in user preferences due to different spatial configurations.


Abstract: Heteropneustes fossilis (Heteropneustidae) is an air breathing freshwater catfish, has an ever increasing demand as a major source of protein and vitamin A. Acid precipitation has detrimental effect on fish population. We have investigated the activity and localization of the enzyme alkaline phosphatase (ALP), by means of histochemical study on experimental wound repair in the fish skin under acid stress. After injury there was a significant decrease in ALP activity in the cells of the migrating epidermis. There was a gradual increase in the activity of ALP in basal cells, epithelial cells of the middle layer and outer layer and club cells after epithelialization (18 h) of the wound during the early stages of healing. By 96h – 10 days, a fairly high ALP activity in the basal cells was observed. With completion of dermal repair, there was a gradual disappearance of ALP activity. The granulation tissue and the differentiating muscle bundles showed a weak reaction for ALP activity. The late appearance and activity of ALP delayed the wound repair process under acid stress condition.


Abstract: Viterbi Decoder (VD) employed in digital wireless communication plays a dominant role in the overall power consumption of trellis coded modulation (TCM) decoder. Power reduction in VD could be achieved by reducing the number of states. A pre-computation architecture with T-algorithm was implemented for this purpose, and when we compare this result with full Trellis VD, this approach significantly reduces power consumption without degrading decoding speed much . Low power design of VD for TCM systems with reliable delay is presented in this paper. This work focuses on the realization of convolutional encoder and adaptive Viterbi decoder (AVD) with a constraint length (K) of 9 and a code rate (k/n) of ½ using field programmable gate array (FPGA) technology. The performance of the implemented AVD is analyzed by using ISE 10.1 and Modelsim simulations.

Abstract: Network security has become more important to personal computer users, organizations, and the military. With the advent of the internet, security became a major concern and the history of security allows a better understanding of the emergence of security technology. The internet structure itself allows for many security threats to occur. If the architecture of the internet is modified, it can reduce the possible attacks that can be sent across the network. Knowing the attack methods allows us to emerge with appropriate security. Many businesses secure themselves from the internet by means of firewalls and encryption mechanisms. The businesses create an “intranet” to remain connected to the internet but secured from possible threats. The entire field of network security is vast and in an evolutionary stage. In order to understand the research being performed today, background knowledge of the internet, its vulnerabilities, attack methods through the internet, and security technology is important and therefore they are reviewed.

Abstract: In this modern age, reliable and affordable electricity is requirement of every human being. 19% of population of the world is without access to electricity. Developed countries are managing to provide reliable and affordable electricity to all, while maintaining energy security. Developing countries are unable to supply the electricity to all, therefore, consuming kerosene for lighting and diesel for agricultural, telecom towers, commercial and miscellaneous activities. In India 300 millions peoples are without access to the electricity, one third of rural population and 6% of urban population (1). Government of India is providing subsidy on kerosene for lighting and diesel for agricultural and other purposes. The Government of India has a vision to electrify 100% villages and households that are not in remote under Rajeev Gandhi Grameen Vidyutikaran Yojana. Such remote villages and households are to be electrified by off- grid solar PV under the guidelines of Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission.

Abstract: Now a days air conditioning system is the necessity part of human life. The different controllers used for controlling air conditioning system like on-off controllers or PID controllers. But these controllers cannot give the sufficient response and consume high power. This paper aims to control the air conditioning system such that the output temperature of air conditioning systems are getting as required by the operator with fast response and low consuming power. For this purpose neural network controllers are designed which is feedback to the air conditioning system. We designed such neural network control system that speculates its own control law. The advantage of using neural networks are this controller is self-learning system and give the faster and better response with comparison to another controllers and give the zero overshoot output.

Abstract: This study focuses on the phenomenon of sportivisation in Physical Education School through the state of anxiety and mood perceptions of 200 students of third year male and female secondary states. The sportivisty of Physical Education is characterized by an emotional grip which can be translated by an inability to manage the state of anxiety generated by a purely sports situation which leads to the emergence of negative mood in the student. The students studying three educational institutions, it was possible to show that because of the sporty character of the meeting of Physical Education, the concept of state anxiety is associated with the notion of state mood as assessed by questionnaires (STAI) identifying the state anxiety score and (PANAS) identifying scores of positive and negative affects in sport. The results of our research showed a perfect positive correlation between state anxiety and negative affect. No correlation was observed between state anxiety and positive affect. The comparison based on gender showed no significant difference. This study, however, shows that the sportivisation of Physical Education is a source of high anxiety and negative moods in the student. The phenomenon sportivisation was not studied by us, from a scientific point of view in physical education, and advanced following the completion of this research provide suggestions to better understand the future.

Abstract: Tamoxifen in treatment of breast cancer is replaced by aromatase inhibitors (AIs) which blocks and prevent estrogens by inhibiting aromatase enzyme. Treatments in breast cancer, such as oophorectomy, gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) agonists, chemotherapy and AIs, all decrease endogenous estrogens and cause significant decrease in bone mineral density (BMD) leading to bone loss and increase the risk of fractures. There is evidence to suggest that various musculoskeletal issues (pains) may be associated with low circulating estrogen levels. The most important and efficient step in preventing AI induced fracture risk is to assess for other clinical risk factors for osteoporosis before initiating AIs. The most robust non-BMD risk factors are age and prevalent fracture. The various steps in prevention of AIs induced fracture are. 1. Healthy and active lifestyle. 2. Regular Vitamin D and Calcium supplements. 3. Vigilant Monitoring of affected areas.

Abstract: Landscaping can improve the micro climate of the immediate surroundings of a building; by modifying the microclimate around a building making the building sustainable. Yola has a very hot climate which makes it necessary to have mechanical cooling systems in the buildings but due to power shortage and the need to conserve energy, it becomes necessary to have proper landscaping, since the hotter weather occupies the major part of the year. This research is trying to find out whether there is prevalence of proper landscaping to enhance passive cooling in Yola especially within Modibbo Adama University of Technology (MAUTECH) Yola. Literatures were reviewed to analyze and determine existing conditions of buildings while physical observation of surroundings and the climatic data was also gotten from meteorological stations taken into consideration with data recorded over a period of time. A large number of buildings and their immediate surroundings were designed without the provision of landscaping. Landscaping is major aspect of passive cooling technique in which if Architects and Designers apply to buildings whether they are new or retrofitted buildings, would enhance and maintain the comfortable internal conditions as well as the immediate environment.

Abstract: In MANET (Mobile Ad hoc Networks) is highly vulnerable to attacks in this Routing attacks are most important because they will cause devastating damage to MANET. In order to deal with the routing attacks in the existing system we are using the binary or naive-fuzzy theory of cost sensitive intrusion response system in MANET. But this model cause unexpected network partition and additional damage, It took the subjective knowledge and objective evidence but omitted the logical reasoning part. So in proposed system we are using the risk aware response mechanism based on the quantitative risk estimation and tolerance.

Abstract: This descriptive study was conducted in Iligan City, northern coast of Mindanao, occupying the Southern portion of the Philippine archipelago. This is a survey of 462 respondents coming from the cross-section of the communities during the Calendar Year 2012 to assess if the City Public Library was able to level the library services as based on its collections. Moreover, personal interviews were conducted, daily statistics on library users was utilized, and survey questionnaire on awareness, patronage, gauge of services against needs, other information sources information needs, and library resources were done in data gathering. Findings revealed that of the 313,291 total population (as of 2012 census) which is the target users of the city public library, only 8,397 or 2.68% actually made use of its library services. Out of this, an overwhelming majority or 88.46% are students, followed by the children with 4.74% and the professionals with 3.87% patronage. There has been no patronage from the handicaps and inmates and very least from the out-of-school-youth, non professionals, and senior citizens. Factors affecting these wide gaps between the legitimate and the actual users include: awareness in ICPL’s existence and the mandate of Republic Act 7743, geographical accessibility, policies of ICPL, library services, and the presence of other information centers within the city. These findings imply that the Iligan City Public Library must plan massive reach-out programs in order to bring the library resources closer to all sectors of its intended users which are the whole of the Iligan City community.

Abstract: When we talk about economic growth or development, the easiest way is deemed to be taken into consideration. Story for the development of the newly borne hilly state of Uttarakhand was no exception. Since its inception, the state resources, natural for specific reasons, have been immensely utilized rather over utilized in the names of revenue generation, employment, development, growth and many such related terms. The present case tries to highlight the facts about the future problems which are bound to be there if and only if the localities, government bodies and other related bodies are concentrating only on tourism related activities for the above mentioned purposes. Alternate means, such as agribusiness horticultural exercises to be more precise, are already available in the area and can easily prove to be an excellent source of revenue generation for the hilly regions of the state if proper planning is carried out.
