Abstract: This research note presents the results of testing the goodness (factor analysis and reliability) of two questionnaires – communication satisfaction and leadership style – within the Palestinian community. The paper further discusses dimensionality for each construct. The Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire (MLQ)[1] rates leadership behaviors utilized by leaders/supervisors. The MLQ has been widely tested for its reliability in diverse context. Communication Satisfaction Questionnaire (CSQ) [2] measures the level of individuals’ satisfaction with organizational communication in several organizations. Palestine, with its uniqueness, provides an ideal context to test both of these scales to be serviced in similar communities. The present study has adapted the original MLQ and CSQ to fit with the Arabian culture. Both scales were translated into Arabic language, back translated, and reviewed by specialists. Both scales performed well and provide strong support for the validity and reliability of each scale, allowing other researchers a high degree of confidence in their application. The finding suggests that these research tools may be useful and can be expanded to the greater Arabian region.

Abstract: Ball swaging is a material process used to assemble a boss tower and an arm aperture. A swage ball is inserted into the boss tower to swage and couple two components. The swage ball has a larger diameter than an inner diameter of the boss tower, applies a compression force to the inner surface of the boss tower to hold both components together with adequate holding force and without damaging the boss tower. This study proposes a new design of the boss tower by relief ring width optimization. It reduces the arm tip deformation while avoiding HSA resonance and allows similar swaging quality by using single ball. The 3-D FE method was used for analysis. The result analysis and experiment show boss tower deformation very similar. Although the variation of CTQ has been decreased, cleanliness has been improved. Moreover, non-circular arm aperture is able to reduce swage effect.

Abstract: Each new theory shares the same way in science. Its appearance is based on new experimental data and theoretical researches. They thought that experimental data are more valuable than theoretical research because any data can be proven by actual measurement and mathematical calculations. They believe also that agreement between physical measurement and mathematical calculations shows total proof for any way of thought. This paper shows inadequacy of that point of view and discusses well known facts from the history of science.

Abstract: Nowadays, companies face great pressure from different actors to behave in particular way. These actors have great impacts on the ability of organizations to achieve their objectives. These impacts are variety in their power according to the variety of the actors. The limited time and resources make it is difficult to give the same attention of the different actors. This has led to the need of a tool that can be used to classify the different actors and identify their positive and negative influences on the companies, which is called stakeholder analysis. This paper provides in brief some of the characteristics of this analysis, and how this analysis can benefit the company. In addition, it presents example of how stakeholder analysis can be conducted. The results of this papers indicates that the stakeholder analysis is useful tool, which can help the managers in giving particular attention to particular stakeholders for the purpose to achieve particular objectives.

Abstract: Adaptive PID controller based on real base function (RBF) network identification by optimal tuning of proportional integral derivative (PID) controller parameter is necessary for thematic factory operation of an automatic voltage regulator (AVR) system. This study presents a combined genetic algorithm (GA) and real base function network (RBF) identification control approach to determine the optimal PID controller parameters and AVR system. The problem of obtaining the optimal AVR and PID controller parameters is formulated as an optimization problem and real base function network (RBF) identification tuning by genetic algorithm (GA) is applied to solve the optimization problem. The proposed approach has resulted in AVR and PID controller with a good short-term response. The optimal PID gains obtained by the proposed RBF tuning by genetic for various operating conditions are used to improve the short-term response of AVR system. The suitability of the proposed approach for PID controller tuning has been demonstrated through computer simulations in an AVR system

Abstract: A good weld from spot welding mechanism is what most of the manufacturers preferred and desired for mechanical assemblies in their systems. The robustness is mainly relies on the joining mechanism of mechanical parts; especially when combining two different materials and therefore this paper analyzes the spot weld growth on 302 austenitic stainless steel and low carbon steel of 1mm of thickness. In this experiment we have welded sixty three (63) samples; especially for tensile strength test (45); for hardness test (9) and the rest for metallurgical studies. The basic controlling parameters that varied throughout the experiments were welding current and the welding time while electrode force and tips were kept unchanged. The weldment was developed from lower range of controlling parameters to higher range. However this experiment was limited to the basic parametric variation to find optimum parametric set up for 1mm base metals. The test result shows close relationship in the parametric changes with respect to its strength as how other researchers found in mixed steel spot welds.

Abstract: This paper proposes a power quality disturbance classification technique based on the energy of the distorted signals. The multi-resolution analysis technique of DWT is employed on the distorted signals to extract the energy distribution features at different levels of resolution. To identify the different power quality disturbances the energy difference at each decomposition level is calculated with respect to the energy of the pure sinusoidal signal. Then probabilistic neural network is applied to classify the power quality disturbances. The simulation results validate the accuracy and efficiency of the proposed method.

Abstract: A trigonometric shear deformation theory for flexure of thick beams, taking into account transverse shear deformation effects, is developed. The number of variables in the present theory is same as that in the first order shear deformation theory. The sinusoidal function is used in displacement field in terms of thickness coordinate to represent the shear deformation effects. The noteworthy feature of this theory is that the transverse shear stresses can be obtained directly from the use of constitutive relations with excellent accuracy, satisfying the shear stress free conditions on the top and bottom surfaces of the beam. Hence, the theory obviates the need of shear correction factor. Governing differential equations and boundary conditions are obtained by using the principle of virtual work. The thick simply supported isotropic beams are considered for the numerical studies to demonstrate the efficiency of the. Results obtained are discussed critically with those of other theories.

Abstract: A biotical stressful environment in changing climate is predicted to impact negatively the diversity and abundance of insect-pests; and ultimately the extent of damage caused in economically important agricultural crops. This may affect perilously the agricultural production and the livelihood of farmers especially in tropical and subtropical countries where larger proportion of work force is directly depending on climate sensitive sectors such as agriculture. In this article, we enlighten through the extensive literature survey, the climate change induced challenges that the crop growers have to face in near future in managing harmful insect pests of their crops along with its socio-economic impacts on farming community. We feel it is timely and important that further studies pertaining to climate change driven changes in serious insect-pests of crops and planning and development of adaptive strategies needs to be undertaken to lessen the yield losses and safeguard the food security of nation.

Abstract: This paper offers an outlook on gender mainstreaming in water management in India by investigating the linkages between ‘gender’ and selected practices of drinking water management. Experience from several water projects have shown that gender is not mainstreamed effectively if restricted to practices that only try to make women visible or simply add a gender component in an intervention program. One of the successful community owned water project ‘Aapni Yojna in 350 villages of three districts of Rajasthan, India is taken up as a case for investigation to analyze the various dimensions of gender in the context of water. Prospects for effective gender mainstreaming in water management will be the turning point on how the principal agenda can address the change of gender relations and water as a human right so as to realize the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) in developing countries.

Abstract: India has made huge strides in the past decades in warding off the spectre of famine. The Green Revolution should have gone a long way to tackling child malnutrition, Norman Borlaug’s creation of dwarf spring wheat strains in the 1960s meant that India could feed itself at last. Better farming techniques and food security policies have made mass starvation a thing of the past. Yet the problem of child malnutrition remains critical, and the reasons it deserves concerted attention are many. Besides the obvious moral obligation to protect the weakest in society, the economic cost to India is and will be staggering. The present study was carried out to find out Maternal and Environmental Factors affecting the nutritional status of Anganwadi children in Rafiq nagar urban slum of Mumbai. This is a Descriptive Epidemiological study conducted at Rafiq Nagar urban slum which is a field practice area of Department of Preventive and Social Medicine, TN Medical College, Mumbai, India.

Abstract: Solid-state switch-mode rectification converters have reached a matured level for improving power quality in terms of power-factor correction (PFC), reduced total harmonic distortion at input ac mains and precisely regulated dc output in buck, boost, buck–boost and multilevel modes with unidirectional and bidirectional power flow. In this paper, an improved power quality converter employing conventional PI based & intelligence controlled( FLC) forward buck converter topology is used to feed a permanent magnet brushless DC motor (PMBLDCM) drive. Normally, the PMBLDCM drive consists of a three-phase voltage source inverter (VSI) and a PMBLDCM which is fed from single-phase AC mains through a diode bridge rectifier (DBR). In this proposed system a conventional pi and fuzzy logic controlled based forward buck DC-DC converter is used after the DBR and it performs power factor correction (PFC) at input AC mains and voltage control at DC link, in a single-stage.

Abstract: Urbanization is undoubtedly the major transformation to land cover that profoundly influences biotic diversity. Changing urban landscape with high population growth and more demand for land is a major issue in Metropolitan Guwahati. The general pattern of urbanization in Guwahati is complex, diverse and fragmented which brings modification to natural land cover within the city. This complex urbanization process has altered the land surface characteristics within the city. An analysis of Landsat imageries has revealed subsequent decrease of land cover with a distinct spatial heterogeneity of land surface temperature from 1991 to 2008. To regulate the development, the proposed Master Plan for Guwahati 2025 has assigned some land use zoning. But the pressure of changing urban landscape has clearly seen over the eco-sensitive and Green belt areas, especially towards the periphery of the city. Due to scarcity of vegetation, some hotspots on surrounding hillocks were identified, the surface temperature of which is as high as the downtown. Thus, here an attempt has been made to correlate variation in temperature with land use type. The result of the present study is considered to be useful to develop countermeasure to thermal environmental problem in Guwahati metropolitan area.

Abstract: Solar energy is one of the major renewable sources and is non polluted. Hence, the utilization of this energy is essential everywhere where the maximum possibility of utilization of solar energy is there. One of such possibility is solar power to street lights and traffic systems. Hence, an attempt is made to implement the solar power saver system for street lights and automatic traffic control unit. The proposed system is implemented with MAX3032 Altera CPLD with 32 macro cells. An infrared sensor array is installed on the streets to know the presence of traffic. As there is a requirement of light only at night times, light detectors are used in the system to work it only in the absence of sun light when there is a presence of traffic. In this way the maximum power can be saved. Proposed cost effective system not only saves the power rather it reduces the usage of conventional energy. The proposed system logic is implemented using VHDL.

Abstract: The kinetic study, cover all the important aspects of chemical reaction including mechanism. The outcome of investigations indirectly explain the path of certain complex biochemical processes. The role of the organic phosphate ester in chemistry and particularly in biochemistry were recognized quite early because of common C—N—P linkages present in nucleotides. With this view, investigations of the kinetic study of the hydrolysis of 2-ethyl, 6-methylaniline phosphate ester has been made in a wide range of various experimental conditions at pH 1.24. The rate of coefficents of temperature effect have been determined. The reactive species has been found to undergo hydrolysis with common P—N bond fission, with bimolecular reaction path, since the entropy of a activation energy falls in the range.

Abstract: We are living in an international society, and HIV has become the first truly international epidemic, easily crossing oceans and borders. It is disappointing that the global numbers of people infected with HIV continue to increase, despite the fact that effective prevention strategies already exist. The present study was carried out to assess the awareness of rural population about HIV/AIDS in Raigad district and operationalization of appropriate interventions to empower the community leaders with appropriate leadership skills, to control the spread of HIV infection. The present community based interventional study was conducted during January 2009 to December 2009 at Mahad Taluka of Raigad District, India. Total of 724 individuals were selected by using stratified random sampling. The information was gathered by personal interview using semi-structured proforma. Total 724 individuals were interviewed with 202 (27.9%) males and 522 (72.1%) females. Overall awareness about symptoms of HIV/AIDS, its transmission routes and preventive measures was very poor. Composite scores of Knowledge and attitude were low (below 50%) specifically in females, unmarried and illiterate individuals. Thus it is necessary to create suitable environments at community level to stimulate, support and sustain healthy lifestyle choices and fear and guilt free discussion on the issue of HIV / AIDS and condom. At the level of the individual, the interventions should focus on behaviour change, especially aimed at HIV / AIDS prevention.

Abstract: Optoelectronic is one of the thrust areas for the recent research activity. One of the key components of the optoelectronic family is photo detector to be widely used in broadband communication, optical computing, optical transformer, optical control etc. Result that theoretical predicted for device and using MATLAB are quite similar. Present paper includes Id–Vd characteristics and Numerical model (3D)of a GaAs MESFET Photo detector has been presented in this paper. The model takes into account all the major effects that determine the device characteristics in the illuminated condition. It has been found that in a short channel MESFET photo detector, the drain current saturation is caused by the velocity saturation of the carriers rather than the pinch off condition. By considering both the photo conductive effect in the channel and photo voltaic effect at the gate Schottky barrier, the major limitations of the existing model have been overcome.

Abstract: Rhinitis, an extremely common medical condition, is characterized by acute or chronic inflammation of mucous membranes. Pro-inflammatory cytokines, including interleukin-6 (IL-6), IL-8 and TNF-α are the key drivers of inflammatory response in rhinitis. Hence, their inhibition is an important therapeutic strategy for treating rhinitis. In vitro cell line models are extremely valuable for testing the potential of new therapeutic compounds. Epithelial cell lines derived from the airway and nasal passage have been previously reported as models for testing anti-rhinitic drugs such as Cetirizine and Loratidine.

Abstract: Traffic intensities in Sri Lankan roads are ever increasing making current traffic light system ineffective. Then it is imperative to make new methods to control increasing traffic. This end could be achieved only by eliminating inherent defects in traffic light system. Among approaches suggested to address the problem of managing higher traffic intensities includes extract information about the traffic concentration by processing digital images. This study attempts to estimate the traffic intensity by using image processing which also a part of intelligent traffic control system adopted in the future. This study focused on eliminating the problem encountered in commercial image processing system which does not work well in traffic congestions. The difficulty arrives when vehicles are exposed partially and appears differently under different light and environment conditions. This study proposed to develop an algorithm to detect vehicles from a stream of images extracted from a video. This algorithm will separate vehicles from their backgrounds and detect vehicles on the basis of morphological characteristics.

Abstract: Homelessness has been one of the issues that remain unresolved in parts of India due to complicated and interwoven factors. Human rights groups have also found that in India children are sometimes forced into pornography, prostitution and sex slavery. The purpose of the study is to find out the pattern of exploitation and victimization of the beggar population in Patna district. The study is qualitative and exploratory in nature. Purposive sampling was used to conduct this study with 22 beggars including female and male beggars aged between 13 to 55. The study reveals that homeless beggars are victims of organized crimes and face exploitation such as physical torture and economic loss. Female beggars face sexual exploitation and are manipulated into prostitution. Young beggars are manipulated and forced into drug abuse and drug dealing, pick pocketing, stealing and robbery. With no doubt, the illegal activities are being operated by gangs & supported by local police. Homeless beggars are being targeted and continuously exploited by gangs especially young girls & children. State needs to take immediate steps to prevent these vulnerable populations from being victimized being homeless. The study is conducted at specific places where beggars’ daily activities are centralized with consequence that the findings are potentially very context specific.

Abstract: Power flow analysis is the backbone of power system analysis and design. They are necessary for planning, operation, economic scheduling and exchange of power between utilities. The principal information of power flow analysis is to find the magnitude and phase angle of voltage at each bus and the real and reactive power flowing in each transmission lines. Power flow analysis is an importance tool involving numerical analysis applied to a power system. In this analysis, iterative techniques are used due to there no known analytical method to solve the problem. To finish this analysis there are methods of mathematical calculations which consist plenty of step depend on the size of system. This process is difficult and takes a lot of times to perform by hand. The objective of this project is to develop a toolbox for power flow analysis that will help the analysis become easier. Power flow analysis software package develops by the author use MATLAB programming The economic load dispatch plays an important role in the operation of power system, and several models by using different techniques have been used to solve these problems. Several traditional approaches, like lambda-iteration and gradient method are utilized to find out the optimal solution of non-linear problem. More recently, the soft computing techniques have received more attention and were used in a number of successful and practical applications.

Abstract: Environmental restoration is not simply a practical matter. The topic carries with it immense of metaphysical and aesthetic interest. In the same way that the science of ecology and cultural phenomenon of environmental politics are inseparable, restoration of the environment is inextricably tied to and informed by several areas of discourse: ecology, cultural ecology, human ecology, environmental history and environmental ethics. The multi-disciplinary scope of the literature review undertaken for this work allowed for the reconceptualization of key terms and ideas of critical importance to restoration The Vast stretches of Renukoot, Singrauli, Sonbhadra region were once covered with natural forests, hills and grassland with various natural resources. The tribal dwelling populations were small and interspersed. Before 1950, this area was a normal town enjoying the natural environment, traditional systems of culture and living with pollution free environment. The changes in status of environmental and development of Sonbhadra began during 1950 with the construction of two dams Rihand and Obra. Since then a number of establishment like Hindalco Aluminimum Plant (1962), Kannoria Chemicals (1964). A cement factory (1970) Followed by a number of coal, stone, mining projects and power generation units established scenario of the region and impacted human socio-cultural environment very significantly.

Abstract: Clustering is a task of assigning a set of objects into groups called clusters. In general the clustering algorithms can be classified into two categories. One is hard clustering; another one is soft (fuzzy) clustering. Hard clustering, the data’s are divided into distinct clusters, where each data element belongs to exactly one cluster. In soft clustering, data elements belong to more than one cluster, and associated with each element is a set of membership levels. In this paper we represent a survey on fuzzy c means clustering algorithm. These algorithms have recently been shown to produce good results in a wide variety of real world applications.

Abstract: Agile methodology promises quality deliverables in frequent intervals. In Agile project development, user stories (requirements) entered in Product backlog is prioritized and according to priority few of them are selected for the current iteration (sprint). These user stories have to be implemented within that sprint. Hence the project team demands experts in the relevant domain for successful completion. Software development organizations have limited number of experts with them and hence the number of projects that follow agile methodology is restricted. This paper first discusses the risk involved if moderately skilled members are chosen for agile software development and then the methods to mitigate the risk so that more number of projects can adopt agile methodology.

Abstract: Wireless sensor network used Clustering techniques to extend the lifetime of the network. LEACH is the one from these clustering techniques to maintain the energy efficiency of sensors. The technique of selecting nodes with highest residual energy as cluster heads with the assumption that energy consumption distribute periodically between the nodes. Cluster heads collect information from the surrounding nodes and send it to the base station. but sometimes if one of this clusters fails it cannot be detected by the cluster heads or BS. Non cluster heads and sub cluster heads still send data to the failed CH in every time slot of a frame allocated to them, hence more energy is consumed. In this paper, we have proposed a new algorithm of fault tolerance to determine the cluster heads failures within a few seconds after the beginning of each round to enhance the lifetime of wireless sensor network.

Abstract: The Cellulose is the most abundant polymer in nature and constitutes a large pool of carbon for microorganisms, the main agent responsible for soil organic matter decomposition. Cellulolysis is broughtabout by interaction of complex communities of micro-organisms namely, fungi and bacteria. Earlier studies have shown that the substrate cellulose is insoluble, therefore bacterial and fungal degradation occurs exocellularly either in association with the outer cell envelop layer or extracellularly. Earthworms play an important role in the degradation of substrate indirectly by affecting microbial population structure and dynamics and also directly simply because their gut is capable in undertaking cellulolytic activity. Thus, products of cellulose hydrolysis are available as carbon and energy sources for other microbes that inhabit environment in which cellulose is biodegraded, and this availability forms the basis of many biological interactions. Yet, there are still few questions to be answered as to whether cellulase comes from the earthworm or from symbiotic ingested microorganisms during the cellulolysis?

Abstract: A high performance computer includes a fast processor and millions bytes of memory. During the data processing, huge amount of information are shuffled between the memory and processor. Because of its small size and its effectiveness speed, cache has become a common feature of high performance computers. Enhancing cache performance proved to be essential in the speed up of cache-based computers. Most enhancement approaches can be classified as either software based or hardware controlled. The performance of the cache is quantified in terms of hit ratio or miss ratio. In this paper, we are optimizing the cache performance based on enhancing the cache hit ratio. The optimum cache performance is obtained by focusing on the cache hardware modification in the way to make a quick rejection to the missed line’s tags from the hit –or miss comparison stage, and thus a low hit time for the wanted line in the cache is achieved. In the proposed technique which we called Even-Odd Tabulation (EOT), the cache lines come from the main memory into cache are classified in two types, even line’s tags and odd line’s tags depending on their Least significant Bit (LSB), This division is exploited by EOT technique to reject the miss match line’s tags in very low time compared to the time spent by the main comparator in the cache, giving an optimum hitting time for the wanted cache line. The high performance of EOT technique against the familiar mapping technique FAM is shown in the simulated results.

Abstract: The present study is aimed to ascertain whether preeclampsia is associated with changes in serum levels of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), placental growth factor (PlGF) and soluble fms-like tyrosine kinase -1 (sFlt-1) and urinary excretion levels of PlGF in Indian patients. Serum and urine samples were obtained from 40 women with preeclampsia and 40 normotensive, non-proteinuric pregnant women as control and the levels of these factors were analyzed using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). The serum levels of VEGF (mean ± SD 170.53 ± 36.56 Vs 254.61 ± 47.394 pg/ml, p<0.0001), PlGF (mean ± SD 236.77 ± 93.70 Vs 744.98 ± 168.55 pg/ml, p<0.0001) and the urinary levels of PlGF (mean ± SD 30.08 ± 9.42 Vs 77.70 ± 24.70 pg/ml, p<0.0001) were significantly lower (mean ± SD 236.77 ± 93.70 Vs 744.98 ± 168.55 pg/ml, p<0.0001) where as serum levels of sFlt-1 were significantly higher (median 11295.25 Vs 2936.2 pg/ml, p<0.0001) in preeclamptic patients compared to the control. In conclusion, preeclampsia is associated with alterations in serum and urine angiogenic factors. The longitudinal measurement of these angiogenic factors in serum might be ideal for ascertaining the risk of preeclampsia, but measuring the levels of PlGF in the urine during routine antenatal care could be a simpler and noninvasive factor, if it can be used as definite, informative screening marker for preeclampsia.

Abstract: The importance of materials in modern world can be realized from the fact that much of the research is being done to apply new materials to different components. However it is natural for a design engineer to rely on trusted and tested materials, but now the world is changing .Today composite materials have changed all the material engineering. The evolution of composite materials has given an opportunity to various designers to use new and better materials resulting in cost reduction, increase in efficiency and better utilization of available resources. Composite materials are finding their applications in aerospace industry, automobile sector, manufacturing industries etc. This paper presents design method and vibrational analysis of composite propeller shafts. In this paper, the aim is to replace a metallic drive shaft by a two-piece composite drive shaft. Designing of a composite drive shaft is divided in two main sections: design of the composite shaft and design of couplings. In composite shaft design some parameters such as critical speed, static torque and adhesive joints are studied; the behavior of materials is considered nonlinear isotropic for adhesive, linear isotropic for metal and orthotropic for composite shaft. Along with the design all the analyses are performed using finite element software (ANSYS). The results show significant points about optimum design of composite drive shafts.

Abstract: Emails, SMS, Chat transcripts and Social Network Messages play a vital role in present day’s communication. These digitally communicated data sets are different from well typed English documents like books, news papers …Etc in 2 ways. One is the use of acronyms instead of typing full form of the term and another one is the existence of misspelled words. Because of these reasons, information retrieval methods used for analyzing well typed English documents may not be well suitable to analyze them. In this paper we propose an information retrieval method to address the high recall requirements of retrieving information from digitally communicated data sets.

Abstract: Human Development described as the ultimate goal of the development process with economic growth, or as a means towards improved human development. Economic growth is an important factor in reducing poverty and generating the resources necessary for human development and environmental protection. The human development is a process of expanding the real freedoms that people enjoy. There is a strong correlation between gross domestic product (GDP) per capita and indicators of development such as life expectancy, infant mortality, adult literacy, political and civil rights, and some indicators of environmental quality. However, economic growth alone does not guarantee human development. In fact, the performance of an economy or region has begun to be measured by how it fares with respect to its attainments in human development. The current study attempts to analyze the relationships among Human Development and Economic Growth for traditional Assamese fisherman of Niz-Saldah village in Sarthebari Revenue Circle of Barpeta District, Assam. The study will be able to draw a clear cut picture of the traditional Assamese fisherman in Niz-Saldah village and also analyse their various problems and prospects. It will help the researchers to carry out further study in state level, regional level and national level. Side by side the study will be helpful for up gradation and development of those communities and so on. SOI topographical maps, secondary data, field data, GIS and field observations will be used to carry out this study.

Abstract: In the generation of artificial intelligence and modern intelligent machines, Natural Language Processing forms a major part of the whole system. The implementation of NLP requires a meticulous and complex algorithm which consists of many functional, analytic semantic fragments. The realization of all the modules takes a lot of time and resources. Therefore, there is a need for libraries which contains these modules and can be used whenever required for implementing the algorithm. In this paper, we have constructed a NLP library in Nemerle programming language using the dotnet framework. We have used Nemerle due to its strong meta-programming system, C# like syntax, functional and imperative features. We have developed all the modules and then collaborated them in a single class library which can be used in other languages supported by dotnet framework. Using this library, one can build his own language processing algorithm buy using the provided fundamental features of NLP. In addition to that, we have also shown the advantage of using Nemerle over other available programming languages.

Abstract: Region duplication is a common form of image manipulation where part of an image is pasted to another location to conceal undesirable contents. Mostly used region duplication detection methods are directly matching the block of image pixels. But it is not effective when the duplicated regions have geometrical and illumination distortions. The proposed method uses SR-PE (Scale rotation invariant pattern Entropy) for obtaining the matching pattern which is much faster compared to other algorithms. It generally aims to measure the spatial regularity of matching patterns formed by local keypoints. This method consist of various transformations from which the duplicated region can be identified, by estimating the transform between matched SIFT(Scale Invariant Feature Transform) keypoints. The SIFT algorithm along with the SR-PE and RANSAC algorithm helps to find the duplicated regions more effectively.

Abstract: Neumann’s Tumour/Congenital Granular Cell Tumour (CGCT)/Granular Cell Epulis Of Infancy is a rare lesion of newborn. It is benign in nature, arising from the alveolar ridge of the gingiva. It is seen more frequently in female neonates. It may cause respiratory and feeding problems.Herewith, we present a case report of CGCT arising from the upper gingival margin of female neonate, treated with surgical excision. We report this rare case in view of its unusual resemblance with Granular Cell Myoblastoma though the histogenesis is different.

Abstract: The veteran novelist Margaret Mitchell, who made history with her only novel, Gone With The Wind, had been a reporter earlier, which is known to very few. She had been reporting for Atlanta Journal Sunday Magazine in her hometown Atlanta for four and a half years. The current study has been carried out to find out whether the people, who know her, are aware about her reporting career. It also tried to explore whether she can be a role model for female journalists and if any of her messages hold relevance at present. The study found out that a very few people knew that Margaret Mitchell had been a reporter before writing the historic novel. It also concluded that she can be an inspiration for female journalists and writers and that most of her messages, particularly women-centric, hold relevance even today, when women, though empowered to some extent, face similar problems as were faced during Margaret Mitchell’s time.

Abstract: Host-based Intrusion Detection System (IDS) are based on comparing the system call trace of a process against a set of k-grams. A simple extension to self-based IDS incorporates system call arguments and process privileges either to reduce or make Mimicry attacks more difficult. To avoid increasing the false positives supplied, specifications has to be used to abstract the system call arguments and process credentials. The specification takes into account what objects in the system that can be sensitive to potential attacks.

Abstract: Intrusion detection in Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) is widely used in many applications such as detecting an intruder. The intrusion detection is a mechanism for a Wireless Sensor Network to detect the existence of inappropriate, incorrect or unsuspicious moving attackers. WSN consumes lots of energy to detect an intruder. The main objective of this approach was developed under JFrame Builder tools is to provide simple and secure algorithm for energy efficient approach for external intrusion as well as internal intrusion detection. Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) often consist of tiny devices with limited energy, computational power, transmission range, and memory. WSNs offer a variety of potential means to monitor environments. Furthermore, we consider two sensing detection models: single-sensing detection and multiple-sensing detection. Our simulation results show the advantage of multiple sensor heterogeneous WSNs.

Abstract: A very interesting phenomenon was observed by G.J. Ranque (1931) and R. Hilsch (1945) when a compressed gas is introduced tangentially into a tube. The tube is fitted with a central aperture orifice at one end (this end of the tube being very close to the tangential entry nozzle) and a throttle valve at the other end (this end being a little far off from the entry nozzle). The shape and size of the nozzle is such that the gas attains maximum velocity of emission as it enters into the tube. In the process of movement of the gas inside the tube towards the throttle end, there develops in the spiraling gas a region of high pressure in the peripheral layers and a region of low pressure in the axis of rotation. Thus a hot stream of gas comes out through the throttle end and a cold stream through the orifice. By manipulating the throttle valve, the amount of gas and also the extent of heating and cooling can be controlled. This very simple device with practically no moving parts is sometimes referred to as Ranque tube, Ranque-Hilsch Vortex Tube (RHVT) or Ranque-Hilsch energy separator.

Abstract: The aim of image enhancement is to improve the perception of information in images for human viewers, or to provide better input for other automated image processing techniques. There is no general theory for determining what good image enhancement is when it comes to human perception. However, when image enhancement techniques are used as pre-processing tools for other image processing techniques, then quantitative measures can determine which techniques are most appropriate. Here we are proposing some enhancement algorithms based on spatial domain for better image analysis in medical field.

Abstract: Resource management offers Quality-of-Service reliability for time-critical continuous media applications. Currently, existing resource management systems in the Internet and ATM domain only provide means to reserve resources starting with the reservation attempt and lasting for an unspecified duration. However, for several applications such as video conferencing, the ability to reserve the required resources in advance is of great advantage. This paper outlines a new model for resource reservation in advance. We identify and discuss issues to be resolved for allowing resource reservation in advance. We show how the resource reservation in advance scheme can be embedded in a general architecture and describe the design and implementation of a resource management system providing reservation in advance functionality.

Abstract: Direct torque control based on space vector modulation (SVM-DTC) preserve DTC transient merits, furthermore, produce better quality steady-state performance in a wide speed range. The SVM-DTC system based on input-output linearization technique for induction machine drives is developed in this paper. A sliding-mode observer for estimating flux is introduced. The observer is inherently sensor less because they do not employ the rotor speed adaptation, and thus they are insensitive to speed estimation errors. Moreover, the observer is extremely robust. The simulations of conventional DTC and the proposed control topologies are given and discussed. It is concluded that the proposed control topology outperforms the conventional DTC in reducing torque ripple and parameter robust.
