Abstract: Take bold action towards achieving your dreams. Overcome your fears & live confidently. Be healthier, happier and more inspired. My deepest belief is that there is greatness inside all of us. If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion. Laughter is the best medicine. Examine life, engage life with vengeance; always search for new pleasures and new destines to reach with your mind. Worry only about the things that are in your control, the things that can be influenced and changed by your actions, not about the things that are beyond your capacity to direct or alter. Treasure Friendship, the reciprocal attachment that fills the need for affiliation. Friendship cannot be acquired in the market place, but must be nurtured and treasured in relations imbued with trust and amity. Experience True Pleasure. Avoid shallow and transient pleasures. Keep your life simple. Seek calming pleasures that contribute peace of mind. True pleasure is disciplined and restrained. Master Yourself. to Resist any external force that might delimit thought and action; stop deceiving yourself, believing only what is personally useful and convenient; complete liberty necessitates a struggle within, a battle to subdue negative psychological and spiritual forces that preclude a healthy existence; self mastery requires ruthless cador.

Abstract: Background: Acne vulgaris is the most common condition encountered in dermatologic practice. Recent literature suggests racial and ethnic difference in the sequelae of acne complications with post acne hyperpigmentation topping the list. Therapeutic goals include promoting degradation of melanosomes and inhibiting their formation. Thus it is a challenge to treat patients of darker skin and find an agent to reduce hyperpigmentation without causing undesirable lightening of surrounding normal skin. A right balance of topical and repetitive superficial resurfacing procedures must be undertaken in addition to ultraviolet protection measures.

Abstract: This paper reviews Hanna Pitkin’s (1967) four conceptions of representations. These are descriptive, substantive, formalistic and symbolic representation. The conceptions of representation and their implications for strategies concerning the engagement of women in formal politics are varied. There is a contrast on conceptions that focus on either what is being rep¬re¬¬¬sented or who the representatives are, with conceptions of representation as an act (Pitkin, 1967; Phil¬lips, 1994), as “differentiated relationship among plural actors” (Young, 2000: 127) and Phillips (1995: 96) con¬ception of a “politics of ideas and presence.” Young’s perspective emphasises the relational nature of rep¬resentation. On the other hand, Phillips (1995) incorporates what is being represented and who the representatives are, thus reflecting inclusion and avoiding dichotomies which assume that one is more impor¬t¬ant than the other. The methodology used in this study was documentary research of Pitkin’s work. The works of other scholars who have written on the theories are also reviewed.

Abstract: Solid waste is one of the major environmental problems of Indian cities. The quantity of solid waste produced in cities depends on the type of city, its population, living standards of the residents and degree of commercialization, industrialization and various activities prevailing in the city. Solid waste management is an obligatory function of municipal corporations, municipalities and other local bodies in India. Waste quantities are increasing and municipal authorities are not able to upgrade the facilities required for proper management of such wastes. In many cities and towns, garbage is littered on roads and foot-paths; almost 90% of solid waste is disposed of unscientifically in open dumps and landfills, creating problems to public health and the environment. This design is carried out on municipal solid waste management of Pudukkottai Taluk.

Abstract: This paper is set explore the concepts of Human Development and Happiness. In the process an attempt is made to trace the origin of the concepts as well as the components that constitute the core of human development index and happiness indices so as to examine if any correlation exists between the two. The role of utility is examined through the components of the indices as well as the theoretical framework. The paper argues that the measurement in terms of capabilities as advocated by Sen and Nussbaum has nearly freed welfare and well-being measurements from the clutches of “utility”, while the measurement in terms of happiness, as being attempted by many, has invited utility through the back door. It appears that the Neo-classical utility will continue to rule the roost through happiness studies.

Abstract: Indian Fertilizer Industry being one of the allied sectors of agricultural spheres has immense scopes of growth in future. At present India is the world’s third largest fertiliser producer with an installed capacity of 12.76 million tonnes of nitrogen, 6.2 million tonnes of phosphatic nutrients. Urea is the key fertilizer consumed within the nitrogenous fertilizers segment and accounts for almost 55-60% of all fertilizer consumed in India. Due to high prices of P &K fertilisers under the NBS regime, farmers are using less costly urea in place of P&K fertilisers which is one of the reasons for unbalanced use of fertilizers which in turn lowers average yield per hectare.

Abstract: Exchange rate movement in Kenya has been variable with periods of rapid depreciation of the domestic currency Kenya Shilling, which adversely affect the Kenyan economy. Even though studies have been conducted on the exchange rate regimes and the implications for macroeconomic management as well as managing foreign exchange risk, very little has been done on the study of the firm exposure to exchange risk in Kenya. It is in this context that this research was to evaluate the effects (if any) that variations in the exchange rate has in the financial performance of the selected listed commercial banks in Kenya in the Nairobi Stock Exchange. The overall objective of the study is to find out the effect of foreign exchange exposure on commercial bank performance. The research used both secondary and primary data.

Abstract: The Nigerian political system is marked by divisions along ethnic, class and religious lines. Deliberate manipulation of these primordial identity symbols to gain political advantage in an electoral contest has been a recurring phenomenon of Nigerian politics since independence in 1960. State apparatus has always been used by rational self-interested leaders to amass power, control social values, and distribute resources based on differentiated ethnic group support. As a matter of fact Nigerian elites often develop patron-client relations based on ethnic or regional commonalities. The result of this phenomenon has been a lack of patriotic leadership with nationalistic tendencies and equity-induced service delivery in the political firmament of the country. This essay therefore, examines the nature and character of the country’s political elites in relation to ethnic politics, and how these have impacted on the existing federal structure.

Abstract: Indian retail market is being dominated by the consumerism at present, particularly during the period of post economic reforms. It is being steadily transformed to a market of buyers who exercise the choices depending on their level of awareness from a market containing predominantly sellers. Consumers’ rights can be protected in an economy with the competitive markets if correct standards for the commodities for which one can make a payment have been ensured by the involvement of an institutional network and system of legal protection. To ensure the welfare of the consumers, the government is having the responsibility that each resident of our country is a consumer in single way or others. Our paper has tried to focus on the protection and welfare of Indian potential consumers in retail markets by showing their activities with the purchase of new brands varying across different categories of the products.

Abstract: Olunyala(K) is one of the more than 17 dialects of the Luyia language spoken in Western Kenya, East Africa (Angogo,1980; Guthrie, 1967; Osogo,1966). The purpose of the study was to identify the sound segments that form the onset of Olunyala(K) syllable. The Study used CV Phonology and Generative Phonology to find out the segments that combine to form syllables in Olunyala. Purposive sampling was used to get the data required for the study. Data collection procedures involved sampling only nouns and verbs because these are the word categories that the researcher needed to find out the sound segments that form the Olunyala(K) onset. A descriptive research design was utilized. This design enabled the researcher to categorize the data into nouns and verbs for analysis. The analysis of the data showed that Olunyala(K) has 31 consonant sounds and that not all the sound segments in this dialect carry equal status in the formation of the onset. Basing on the results, it is recommended that a phonemic inventory of Olunyala and other understudied and undocumented luyia dialects be established.

Abstract: Torsional Vibration in industrial drive system can lead to a great economic loss due to loss in production when unexpected components failures result in unscheduled system shutdown. The control structures with proportional-integral controller supported by one additional feedback (from different state variables) effectively suppress the oscillation. However, this control structure can ensure only the free setting of damping coefficient but, not the resonance frequency at the same time. So, this control structure will not be proved efficient where the design specifications require the free setting of both. This paper presents the utilisation of two feedbacks control structures for the free setting of both damping coefficient and resonant frequency simultaneously. The structures are being simulated in MTALAB and the results are present here. Also, a comparison is done between the responses of single feedback and two feedbacks. The result shows that two feedback structures are more efficient than single feedbacks.

Abstract: Losing a spouse in later life is known to have profound effects on well-being and is an event which provokes important life changes. Widowhood often is accompanied by emotional distress, physical symptoms, compromised health behaviors, potentially disruptive residential relocations and economic strains triggered by both the direct costs of medical care and funeral arrangements at the end of a spouse’s life, as well as the loss of the spouse’s income. In the scenario of present day India with the advent of modernization; liberalization, competition and technological advancement the problems of widows have increased, which can lead to intense frustration amongst them, resulting in stress, depression and other forms of adaptive behavior if their patterns of reactions to frustration is not appropriate. The lower levels of loneliness are associated with marriage, higher education and higher income; whereas higher levels of loneliness are associated with living alone, infrequent contact with friends and family, physical health symptoms, small social network, lack of a spousal confidant, poor quality social relationships, and divorce and widowhood.

Abstract: It has become increasingly obvious that continued reliance on fossil fuel energy resources is unsustainable, owing to both depleting world reserves and the green house gas emissions associated with their use. Therefore, there are vigorous research initiatives aimed at developing alternative renewable and potentially carbon neutral Biofuels as alternative energy resources. Algae as a feedstock is emerging at the forefront of biofuel research due to increasing awareness of global energy issues in conjunction with the production limitations of agriculture-based oilseed crops. The present paper is focused on experimentally investigating the influence of injection pressure and injection timing on brake specific fuel consumption (BSFC), brake thermal efficiency (BTE), unburned hydrocarbon (UBHC), carbon monoxide (CO), oxides of nitrogen (NOx) and smoke opacity of a single cylinder compression ignition engine when blends (20%) of algal oil methyl ester are used as a fuel. Engine performance test show that algae oil as a fuel does not differ greatly from that of diesel. The results showed a better performance and reduced emissions at an injection pressure of 200bar..

Abstract: This paper, will present a two optimization techniques (genetic algorithm (GA) and particle swarm optimization (PSO)) are adopted to optimize the sizing of a power train for a fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV). The power train comprised of a fuel cell as the main energy source to supply the vehicle power demand during steady state, battery and supercapacitor as the auxiliary energy storage sources (ESS). It assist the FC during transient state and recovers the energy during braking or deaccelaration. The optimization objective is to achieve the minimum cost, volume, and weight of the power train. Because of a hybrid powertrain, component sizing significantly affects vehicle performance, hence taking into account the constraints of vehicle performance, such as the energy characteristics, power limitations and a DC-link voltage. Optimal sizing of the power train components using GA and PSO algorithms will be presented. Moreover, the calculation and the analysis of the vehicle dynamics and detailed model of the power train is built in MATLAB /SIMULINK.

Abstract: In urology clinical practice in a tropical country like Sri Lanka, a pattern of occupational distribution in patients presenting with ureteric coilc can be observed. As ureteric colic is a debilitating condition which can lead to serious complications thus identifying the risk factors is important. The occupation of an individual has a major impact on predisposing to urolithiasis such as low water intake, excessive perspiration and stress, thus some occupations are at higher risk. This research enrolled 191 patients diagnosed with ureteric colic. It concludes that outdoor workers such as army soldiers and manual laborers have a higher occurrence of urolithiasis compared to indoor workers.

Abstract: This study was carried out in a Bread production floor of Z Bakery factory in Bangladesh. The basic target of this study was to reduce the lead time of the observed Bread production floor. The lean tools like Value Stream Map (VSM), Process Cycle Efficiency (PCE) and Pareto Analysis were used to reduce the lead time. Lead time is the summation of value added (VD) time and non value added (NVD) time. It was observed a number of causes that were responsible for long lead time. Pareto principles were used to find out, quantified and also to reduce the causes prior to short lead time. Takt time and PCE of the Bread production floor were also evaluated which are considered as the process capability factors. At present state, lead time PCE and Takt time were observed consecutively 32605 sec, 12.86% and 19.94 sec/Bread. Eventually, after the proper implementation of lean tools, at future state, the lead time, PCE and Takt time would be 18742 sec, 29.98% and 10.69 sec/Bread.

Abstract: With the increase in population the energy consumption has also increased. Human race is in search of new technology for different energy sources to meet the present demand. Thermoelectric generation is one such emerging technology. This technology uses the waste heat carried away in flue gas or smoke passing through chimney, automobiles, exhaust etc. which is let into the environment to extract electric power. The conversion from heat to electric potential is done with the help of a device called Thermopile. This work primarily concentrates on two objective. Firstly to determine the electric potential at the junction of two different materials. secondly to utilize the developed potential (to operate the load or can be stored in battery).This is an attempt to acknowledge a new technology, a renewable and cost effective one, This will be an alternative source to meet the present demand of energy consumption. This paper describes a method to extract electrical energy from exhaust of a chimney. This can be further extended to other system exhausts also.

Abstract: Photovoltaic is the method of producing electricity by using the solar cells. The main problem associated with the solar cell is its lower efficiency. Photovoltaic cell converts only about 15% of the solar energy falling into the useful electricity. The increase in the temperature increases the resistance of these cell and in turns decreases the cell efficiency. So, cooling these panels is the effective way of increasing the cell efficiency. This work here primarily concentrate on two objectives. First one, to show that the performance of the solar panel increases by reducing the temperature. This cooling is done by air cooling or water cooling on the self designed modified panel. The second objective is to show that the heat removed can be used for other useful purpose like room heating, supplying to power plants, etc. In this present work the solar panel is cooled by passing air with the help of blower and cooling the panel by water based system by making the copper channels on the rare side of the panel.

Abstract: This proposed system explains the wireless body sensor network based on ZigBee technology and GSM Platform. It is mainly used for collection and transmitting the various monitoring information or physiological parameters using Temperature Sensor, Heart Beat Sensor, Blood Presser, and ECG about the patients in hospitals or in their homes to an assigned medical doctor or practitioner. Here the physiological parameters or conditions of the subjects or the patients are monitored by sensors and the output of these sensors is transmitted via Zigbee-GSM communication medium and the same has to be sent to the remote wireless monitor for acquiring the observed patient’s physiological signal. The measured signal is sent to a PC, or mobile phone through the wireless transmission. The first procedure of the system is that the wireless sensors are used to measure Heart rate, temperature, blood pressure, and ECG waveform monitoring from human body using Zigbee. The measured signal is sent to the PC or mobile phone via the RS-232 serial port communication interface.

Abstract: In a globalized world, technology is essential to fulfill the needs of organizations. Understanding how users adapt to technological changes is a priority. Today, the developed and underdeveloped countries share an important role within markets. Underdeveloped countries possess key elements for globalization such as tax-free zones for non local investors, and employment and economic development zones. Due to the expansion of markets, employees around the world must be adequately trained and updated with the latest in technological advances. This study was designed to evaluate and understand the technological adaptability across the countries of Honduras and the U.S. The researchers used an online survey to acquire the opinion of 102 participants this sample was divided by 46 persons from the US and 56 from Honduras. An online method was used to acquire data, asking the participants to answer anonymously a questionnaire developed by the researcher. This survey contained items of perception of importance, usage and interest towards technology. The results reflect no difference between the perception and usage between both countries. However when it comes perception of importance, age makes a difference.

Abstract: With the tremendous growth of e-commerce use of credit cards for online purchases has increased to a great extent and it caused an explosion in the credit card fraud. Fraud has become one of the major ethical issues in the credit card industry. Fraud associated with credit card are also rising today as it has the most popular mode of payment for both online as well as regular purchase. In order to detect frauds from the mix of genuine as well as fraudulent transactions, efficient fraud detection techniques to detect them accurately are vital rather than simple pattern matching techniques. Here an approach is done to detect the credit card fraud using a hybrid approach which involve stages of pre-processing in which anonymous transactions are removed, genetic algorithm modelled for feature selection and support vector machine for classification. The proposed model is done on UCSD-FICO data mining contest 2009 dataset (anonymous and imbalanced). It is the dataset used in competition which was organized by FICO, the leading provider of analytics and decision management technology and the University of California, San Diego UCSD. This paper describes a simple fraud detection mechanism which can effectively detect fraud with great accuracy.

Abstract: Extracting information from semi structured documents is a very hard task, and is going to become more and more critical as the amount of digital information available on the internet grows. Indeed, documents are often so large that the dataset returned as answer to a query may be too big to convey interpretable knowledge. In this work we describe an approach based on Tree-based Association Rules (TARs) mined rules, which provide approximate, intentional information on both the structure and the contents of XML documents, and can be stored in XML format as well. This mined knowledge is later used to provide: (i) a concise idea – the gist – of both the structure and the content of the XML document, (ii) quick, approximate answers to queries and (iii) output without redundancy, null tags and empty tag. In this work we focus on the second and third feature. A prototype system and experimental results demonstrate the effectiveness of the approach.

Abstract: The research was conducted during 2011 - 2013 in the experimental field of the Department of Plant Production in Agriculture Faculty at Trakia University. Stara Zagora. The field experiment was performed with three varieties of common wheat: Enola, Illico and Ingenio. The objective is to determine the influence of the imported herbicide formulations on the performance of common wheat and determination of the most valuable technological options regarding the stability of the yield. Variants of the experiment are as follows: 1. Control - no treatment with herbicides; 2. Axial one - 1000 ml.ha-1; 3. Lintur + Traksos 150 g.ha-1 + 1200 ml.ha-1 - tank mixture; 4. Logran + Traksos 37.5 g.ha-1 + 1200 ml.ha-1 - tank mixture; 5. Lintur + Axial 150 g.ha-1 + 900 ml.ha-1 - tank mixture; 6. Logran + Axial 37.5 g.ha-1 + 900 ml.ha-1 - tank mixture; 7. Lintur + Axial 150 g.ha-1 + 600 ml.ha-1 - separate treatment;8. Lintur + Traksos 150 g.ha-1 + 1200 ml.ha-1 - separate treatment; 9. Logran + Axial 37.5 g.ha-1 + 600 ml.ha-1 - separate treatment.10. Logran + Traksos 37.5 g.ha-1 + 1200 ml.ha-1 - separate treatment. Synthesis criterion for stability YSi by Kang taking into account both the stability and value of production, shows that in terms of technology growing, technologically the most valuable is the variant of decoupling Lintur + Axial (10+). Axial one herbicide was highly complex assessment (11+) for technological stability of yields. In varieties Illicо and Ingenio most technologically valuable options appear involving herbicide Axial one (12+) and separately imported Lintur + Axial (5+).

Abstract: Epidemiological surveillance of antimicrobial resistance is indispensable for empirically treating infections, implementing resistance, control measures and preventing the spread of antimicrobial resistant micro-organisms. Crude extracts from oven-dried pawpaw (Carica papaya) and pineapple (Ananas comosus) were tested against Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aureginosa, Escherichia coli and Streptococcus pneumonia. Even though, these test bacteria showed multidrug resistance against controlled conventional antibiotics, it was observed that the extract from C. papaya showed the highest potency at a concentration of 1.00g/ml on all the test bacteria, the efficacy of A. comosus was also pronounced against all the bacteria at the same concentration. The sensitivity of P. aeruginosa and Staph aureus were not significantly different (p≤ 0.05) at all concentrations of A. comosus extract, except at the concentration of 0.4g/ml and the sensitivity of all the test organisms were not significantly different at a concentration of 0.8g/ml. The sensitivity of all the test organisms at different concentrations of C. papaya extract varied significantly (p≤ 0.05), though E. coli and Strept pneumonia were not significantly different at a concentration of 0.2g/ml. The efficacy of fruits in therapy against diseases or infections from which these bacteria were isolated cannot be underestimated.

Abstract: In this paper, the proposed method is mainly based on analyzing the mel-frequency cepstral coefficients and its derivatives which varies as the voice is disguised. A classifier named the Support Vector Machine (SVM) classifier is used for identification of electronically disguised voice. MFCC statistical moments of training input and test input as a combination of original voice and disguised voice, are given as input to SVM classifier. Now the output obtained will be based on the matching between the training input and the test input. Inorder to provide further enhancement to the particular algorithm, probabilistic neural network(PNN) classifier is used and the performance is evaluated by comparing the accuracy of both classifiers. If the classifier output is matched, then the basic details of the particular person can be transmitted to another location through Email.

Abstract: The study was aimed at determining the content of iodine in NAFDAC approved Table Salts used in Nigeria. Three Table Salts brands namely: Dangote fine edible salt, Royal edible salt and Mr. Chef edible salt was purchased from a retail shop in Makurdi, Benue State, Nigeria. The iodine content of each of the three brands of salt sample were carried out using the titrimetric method. Potassium Iodide (KI) was used for salt iodization. Results show that the Dangote fine edible salt contained 39.6 ppm of iodine while the Royal edible salt contained 41.8 ppm and the Mr. Chef edible salt contained 42.9 ppm. The result confirms that each of the three samples met the iodine content requirements approved by NAFDAC. However, the results were generally lower than the value found at the production level (50 ppm) for each. This could be explained by the fact that iodine content in salt decreases continuously with time. The results were within the acceptable range for human consumption 50 ppm to 30ppm.

Abstract: Human androgens like testosterone and oestrogen are responsible for sexually dimorphic features like more musculo-skeletal system in men. Testosterone affects a number of facial features. In pubertal males, a high testosterone/oestrogen ratio is thought to facilitate the lateral growth of cheek bones, mandible and chin and the forward growth of the bones of eyebrow ridges and lengthening of the lower face leading to more robust face shape. The data for the present study was collected from the 283 individuals of both sexes, which includes 144 mals and 139 female. Considering the present study in Bengalee Hindu caste population. In another hand it is easily highlited that orbital linear measurements (Burley et al, 2003; Debopriya, 2008) which clinically represents the measurement for assessing ocular Hypertelorism, are strongly correlated but in case of male 2D:4D ratio as a proxy measurement for prenatal androgen level is not correlated with Orbital region linear measurements which denotes that prenatal hormonal environment do not affect the orbital measurements.

Abstract: Hospitals are indispensable part of our lives when it comes to providing best medical facilities to people suffering from various diseases, disorders or syndromes. Usually, it is a place that in a vast area with lots of buildings and places such as laboratories, wards, pharmacies, etc. In such situation, patients, visitor and even the working staff might find it difficult to find the necessary place they need to be at a particular time. The newest members who join the hospital staff might take a while to be familiarized with the hospital area including all the places in it. When it comes to the Outdoor Patient Department (OPD) patients, they also might have to go several rooms to meet their doctors, or to get X-rays, lab reports, and buy medicine. Having direction boards helps, but it is not always productive. Sometimes people might find it difficult to read when they are not properly maintained by time.

Abstract: Resource-poor farmers make up over 95% of the farmers in the study area. They cannot afford artificial inputs into their farms, rather they rely on the intrinsic value of the soil, which once depleted then they are not able to produce food from their farms. This area being semi-arid implies that rainfall is low, unpredictable and variable. Soil fertility is low and supports only a few indigenous crops. The social and economic characteristics of these farmers determine their agricultural practices hence food availability, access and stability. Agriculture is the major source of food for these farmers’ households so their food security is determined by agricultural yields.

Abstract: The biological formation of 2AP, by several rhizobacterial isolates was studied on the medium supplemented with L-ornithine. Increase in concentration of 2AP, was observed when proline (4%), ornithine (4%) and putrescine (5%) were supplemented in growth medium. Acinetobacter bahayai-BM-28- KJ143625 was a highest 2AP producing isolate. Medium inoculated with different rhizobacterial isolates was observed with 2-15.4 fold increase over the control. A. bahayai-BM-28- KJ143625 was inoculated in the medium supplemented with different concentrations of 4-aminobutanal and 1-pyrroline. 2-AP was identified as the most important volatile found in the headspace of samples supplemented with different concentrations of 4-aminobutanal before sterilization. 1-pyrroline was found as one of the very important immediate precursor for 2AP synthesis by bacteria. Results of precursor analysis revealed that 2AP production occurs when 4-aminobutanal diethyl acetal deduced from ornithine/proline/putrescine is heat transformed to 1-pyrroline which ultimately is converted into 2AP by bacterial system.

Abstract: Transfer of private, sensitive or confidential data over WAN requires protection against eavesdropping, unautho- rized access, use, modification, perusal, disruption assuredly and efficiently. The available open-source utilities like Rsync reduces time and bandwidth required to update the file across the network. It uses the interactive protocols that detects the changes in a file and sends only changed data but it uses weak SSH encryption for secured transfer even over WAN. It is not a secure mode of the data transfer as there are well known attacks like brute-force attack, dictionary attack on SSH. Every Organization requires their data to be transferred securely and they rely heavily on tools which are secure and can be used efficiently without much constraints.

To address this issue, amounts of soil Cu and Zn in the different organic and inorganic fractions were investigated in soil under long term dumping of industrial and animal wastes, especially swine and cattle manure and in two plots that are under intense vegetation around the dumpsites. The annual rates of manure application were based on the N contents in the various manures, and were approximately equivalent to 0, 50, 10, and 300 1G total N ha-1 y-1 in the vegetated area and 0, and 50 kg total N ha-1 y-1 in the grassland plot. In both the field plot and grassland manure plots there were insignificant increase in total Cu and Zn in soils associated with manure application. Moderate increases in labile Cu and Zn were observed in treatment with large amount of animal manure. The liquid swine manure had less effect than the cattle manure on increasing the labile Cu and Zn fraction. The results indicate that annual addition of animal manures at rates approximately 100kg N ho-1 for about 4 years does not constitute an environmental risk from Cu and Zn loading in these soils.

Abstract: Sorption of lead cadmium and copper was studied using mono, bi-and tri-metal batch test. Simple mathematical expressions were applied to establish relationship between concentration of the adsorbent in the liquid phase and the solid phase at equilibrium and at constant temperature. The studies revealed in general that the soil around the Nasarawa industrial waste dumpsite has a high capacity to sorb metal ions. Results from the kinetics batch tests have shown the applicability of a pseudo second order model to describe adsorption rates of each metal ion in the soil.

Abstract: This study focused on the knowlegeability of girl street children living in Harare in respect of reproductive health. These children are vulnerable considering that they do not have protection from their parents or guardians and most of the time they alone with peers of same ages. In most times they have limited means to get food, clothes and other necessary amenities. This places them at risk of abuse from men who might exploit their vulnerability. It is then imperative that if these children are equipped with relevant reproductive knowledge so that they are in a position to make informed decisions when confronted with challenges that require knowledge of reproductive health so as to avoid unwanted pregnancies, sexually transmitted diseases and HIV.

Abstract: Secret sharing is the process of distributing a secret amongst a group of participants each of whom is allocated a share of the secret. This secret can be reconstructed only when a enough number of possibly different types of shares are combined together. Individual shares have no use here Steganography can applied on video files and hide the message in an encrypted format thus achieving a multiple cryptographic system. The most frequently used technique is Least Significant Bit steganography (LSB steganography). But instead of traditional LSB encoding a modified encoding technique which will first transform the video using a Lazy Lifting Wavelet transform and after that apply LSB in the sub-bands of the video that has been obtained.

Abstract: Nowadays, one of the popular multimedia data exchanged in the internet is Digital video. Protection requers in requires to enhance security in commercial activity on the internet as well as media. a widely interesting research is the 2D Barcode with a digital watermark is in the field of security. By using the Quick Response (QR) Code technique, in this paper we propose a video watermarking with text data. Via a robust video watermarking scheme the QR Code is prepared to be watermarked based on the SVD(singular value decomposition) and DWT (Discrete Wavelet Transform). SVD is an attractive algebraic transformfor watermarking applications. In addition to that logo (or) watermark gives the authorized ownership of video document. For the cover I-frame the SVD is applied. With logo (or) watermark there fused the extracted diagonal value. For SVD cover image and QR code image the SVD is applied. The watermarked image inverse transform and add the frame into video, to authorized customers this watermarked video file sends. In the reverse process for authorized ownership check the logo and QR code. acceptable imperceptibility achieved by these experimental results and in video processing there certain robustness.

Abstract: Study on nanoparticle of herbs on the antimicrobial activity is lacking in the literature, thus this study was conducted with the aimed to evaluate the effectiveness of coarse (CP), fine (FP) and nanostructured ginger rhizome particles (NP) against growth of Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Salmonella typhimurium, Streptococcus pyogenes, Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus subtilis, Rhizopus sp, Aspergillus nige, Candida albicans by using disc diffusion assay. NP had the strongest inhibitory effect against all tested bacteria (8.3 mm) followed by FP (7.5 mm) while CP (6.7 mm) showed the weakest maximum inhibition zone respectively (p < 0.05). However, ginger rhizome water extract at all particle sizes were found not to inhibit yeast and mold. Nanosize particle of ginger rhizome water extract able to inhibit bacteria better than the CP and FP. Hence it is suggested that nanosize particle ginger rhizome water extract has the potential to be used as antibacterial agent in food and pharmaceutical industry.

Abstract: Background-Cerebral palsy (CP) is the most common paediatric physical disability. Children with CP often present with multiple impairments and activity limitations. This makes them often reliant on caregivers for assistance in functional activities. As CP is a lifetime condition, long term caregiving may eventually negatively affect the health related quality of life (HRQoL) of caregivers. HRQoL is context-specific, therefore, we thus set to determine the HRQoL of Zimbabwean primary caregivers of children with CP.
