Abstract: A new field of forensic accounting has emerged as current practices have been changed in electronic business environment and rapidly increasing fraudulent activities. Despite taking many forms, the fraud is usually theft of funds and information or misuse of someone's information assets. As financial frauds prevail in digital environment, accountants are the most helpful people to investigate them. However, forensic accountants in digital environment, usually called fraud investigators or fraud examiners, must be specially trained to investigate and report digital evidences in the courtroom. In this paper, the authors researched the case of financial fraud forensic analysis of the Microsoft Excel file, as it is very often used in financial reporting.

Abstract: HIV is a scourge people living with HIV/AIDS were more exposed to different kinds of OIs due to the low absolute cd4+ T-lymphocyte count, poor drug adherence, co morbid conditions and lost to follow up of ARV drug. In Indian prospective a very limited literature were documented on correlation of CD4 count with respect to Oral candidaisis. In this context Present study aims to determine the incidence of oral Candida albicans infection in HIV positive patients and correlate with age matched CD4 count in Government tertiary care hospitals. A cohort prospective study conducted at Department of ENT, Bangalore Medical College and Research Institute, Bangalore .All Eligible recruited patients meet their inclusion and exclusion criteria. Laboratory parameters like CD4 count, Hb, ESR were collected with lesser error and more accuracy. Total 1063 patients screened for the oral candidiasis. Confirmed and suspected patients recruited for the study. Overall prevalence was 25(2.35%) and statistically significant with the sex and age matched frequency. More number of patients acquired candidiasis between 50-200 micro/Dl, the emphasis of lower CD4 count is likely to prove and expressed the opportunistic infections and Oral candidiasis. Early inception of HAART, Good ARV drug adherence can reduces the incidence rate.

Abstract: This experimental study presents the variation in the strength of concrete when replacing sand by quarry dust from 0% to 100% in steps of 10%. M20 and M25 grades of concrete were taken for study keeping a constant slump of 60mm. The compressive strength of concrete cubes at the age of 7 and 28 days were obtained at room temperature. Also the temperature effect on concrete cubes at 100oC on 28th day of casting was carried out to check the loss of strength. From test results it was found that the maximum compressive strength is obtained only at 50% replacement at room temperature and net strength after loss due to hike in temperature was above the recommended strength value due to 50% replacement itself. This result gives a clear picture that quarry dust can be utilized in concrete mixtures as a good substitute for natural river sand giving higher strength at 50% replacement.

Abstract: For the development of any modern economy, steel is crucial and is considered to be the backbone of human civilisation. The domestic steel industries are facing new challenges. Some of these relate to the trade barriers in the developed markets and certain structural problems due to the high cost of commissioning new projects. Thermo Mechanically Treated (TMT) steel bars are presently used for reinforcement, which are produced in Steel Re Rolling Mills (SRRMs). Presently, in India there are more than 1200 rolling mills are there since 1929. Modernisation of such mills is going on. Since the cost of production of the steel bars is increasing day by day, it is necessary that a good quality monitoring system has to introduce to reduce the waste without affecting its cost. Hence a quality awareness with good maintenance is very much essential. The producer must have a clear awareness about their strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats (SWOT).

Abstract: Shopping malls income mainly comes from rent from the tenants. Other service fees are only small portion of a shopping mall income. Since shopping mall expenses are normally stable. Changing tenant increases operating expense and decreases rental income. This paper explores key factors concerning small tenants, decision making to renew the shopping mall rental contract. The survey data was collected from 4 shopping malls in Bangkok with 215 samples from 460 tenants. The research found out that trust and center management performance are direct factors which impact tenants to renew their rent contract. The indirect factors are empowerment, responsive behavior, cooperate and service quality. Shopping center management should focus on meeting tenants’ satisfaction. If they are satisfied, the probability that they will renew the contract is high. And the shopping mall will get higher income on operation and this will lead to the shopping mall success and sustainability.

Abstract: This paper identifies the incentives preferred by the Chinese firms to invest in Bangladesh. It is mentionable that incentives choice criterion of FDI mostly depends on the socio-economic condition of the host country, strategies followed by that country with the home country, geographical aspect etc. But historically we find most Chinese firm prefers wholly own subsidiaries for investing Bangladesh , faces severe host industry competition, and emphasizes assets seeking purposes in its FDI by using survey data of a sample of 145 Chinese firms. In few cases a joint venture is preferred when the firm is investing in mount in host market. Elsewhere they try to take advantages from the host country because of their widen market share as well as one of the largest economy in the world.

Abstract: The purpose of the present study was to study the effect of selected asanas on the flexibility of wicket keepers in Cricket. A total No. of 30 wicket keepers, ages ranging between 21 to 30 years were randomly selected to act as subject for the study. Sit and Reach test was conducted to measure the flexibility. The asanas were considered as independent variables: Sarvangasana, Matyaasana, Pawanmuktasana, Bhujangasana, Shalbhasana, Dhanuerasana,, Ardhmatsendrasana, Pashchimatanasana, Vajrasana, Ustmasana, Katichakrasana, Padmasana, and Savasana, and on the other hand Flexibility was considered as the dependent variable. Sit and Reach box was used to measure the flexibility of lower hamstring and lower back muscle. The training was designed for nine weeks on alternate days and the duration of one day program had 45 minutes. The data was collected before the training program, after two weeks, four weeks, on the sixth week, and finally on the eighth week of training program. The data was collected and the same was analyzed by computing the descriptive statistics, whereas to assess the significant effect of training program on flexibility repeated measure ANOVA was computed, the level of significance was set at 0.05 level. The results reveals that there was a significant difference wicket keepers in pre and post test as the mean and standard deviation value of the pre test was 32.43 and 7.31 respectively, whereas the mean and standard deviation values of the post test1, post test2, post test3 and post4 were found to be 34.30 and 7.51, 35.60 and 6.95, 36.50 and 6.84 and 38.53 and 7.50 respectively. The values of Repeated Measure One Way ANOVA shows that the F value of assumed Sphericity was found to be 27.62 against the tabulated value of 2.44 which was significant at 0.05 level. The finding of the present study has strongly indicated that asana training has improved the flexibility of the wicket keepers in cricket. Hence the hypothesis previously said that asana training

Abstract: Background: Different operative techniques used for treating displaced proximal humeral fractures could result in malunion, non-union, osteonecrosis of humeral head, loosening of screw and loss of reduction particularly in comminuted and osteoporotic fractures. Locking compression plate (LPHP) has been proposed for open reduction and internal fixation of these fractures and is associated with less complication rate. Materials and methods: Functional outcomes of 16 men and 14 women aged 18- 72 (mean 44.53) years who underwent locking compression plate fixation for proximal humeral fractures were observed after an average 12 months follow- up. Results: According to constant score, 36.66% had excellent outcome, 46.67% had good functional outcome and 16.66% had moderate outcome. The shoulder range of movement was excellent in 11 (36.66%), moderate in 13 (43.33%), and poor in 6 (20%). In objective assessment it was observed that about 83% regain adequate power to perform activities of daily living and in subjective assessment it was found that 63.33% patients were able to perform activity of daily living without much problem. All fractures healed satisfactorily, except in one patient with a valgus 4-part fracture who had malunion. No wound infections, vascular injuries, avascular necrosis, or loss of fixation ensued. Two patients with axillary nerve palsy recovered spontaneously within 3 months. Conclusions: Locking compression plate (LPHP) is an advantageous implant in proximal humeral fractures due to angular stability, particularly in comminuted fractures and in osteoporotic bones in elderly patients, thus allowing early mobilization.

Abstract: The empowerment of women is crucial to the process of development of any community. Though women constitute almost half of our population and play a vital role in every sphere of life, their importance is not properly recognized by the society. They are generally suppressed and enjoy limited access to different fields of life, such as, education, society, culture, politics, business and so on. But a nation can not achieve all round development if women are not given equal opportunity of development with their male counterparts. A society moves when women move. Thus, the social status of women is a reliable indicator to assess the development of the society. It can be said that status of women is intimately connected with their economic position, which in turn depends on opportunities to participate in economic activities. SHGs provide women an avenue to participate in economic activities. It gives women an easy access to credit. The members of SHG meet regularly and save an amount of money in a joint account of the group which can be used as a revolving fund to provide credit for the consumption and production purposes. Sometimes, Bank also gives loans with minimum interest to these groups and as a result the SHG members can take money from that Bank loan at very low interest rate which in turn helps women to establish micro-enterprises and meet the crisis situations. The present paper aims to study the relationship between micro enterprise and women empowerment in Badarpur Development Block of Karimganj District.

Abstract: Let (,,) be a complete probability measure space and X1 and X2 be separable Banach spaces. For Banach spaces Y1 and Y2, let F1: X1Y1 and F2: X2Y2 be random operators. Using F1 and F2, we construct a random operator F: (X1X2)Y1Y2, which is continuous if F1 and F2 are continuous. We prove that if F1 and F2 are stochastically continuous, then F is also stochastically continuous. Similar result is also established in case of separability of random operators. The fixed points of such random operators on the tensor product of Banach spaces is also studied here.

Abstract: Internal combustion engines in now a days is the best available reliable source of power for all domestic, large scale industrial and transportation applications. The major issue arises at the efficiency of these engines. Every attempt made to improve these engines tends to attain the maximum efficiency. The performances of the diesel engines are enhanced by proper design of inlet manifold, exhaust manifold, combustion chamber, piston etc. The study is about the effect of piston configurations on in- cylinder flow. Here a single cylinder direct injection diesel engine is used for study. For obtaining swirl intensity helical-spiral combination inlet manifold is used. Increase in swirl intensity results in better mixing of fuel and air. Swirl Velocities in the charge can be substantially increased during compression by suitable design of the piston. In the present work, a study on the effect of different piston configuration on air motion and turbulence inside the cylinder of a Direct Injection (DI) diesel is carried out using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) code Fluent 13. Three dimensional models of the manifolds, pistons and the cylinder is created in CATIA V5 and meshed using the pre-processor Hypermesh 10.0.

Abstract: Bureaucratic power is a fact of life in the present political and administrative processes throughout the world. It is inherent in all administrative systems and so is the case in the state of Jammu and Kashmir, India. Bureaucracy in J&K emerged as an offshoot of the British Colonial rule in India. The rule ended but the legacy still persists. Over-bureaucracy in the system led to the undue increase in the bureaucratic power. This excessive power became unacceptable to the common masses in J&K. The situation got aggravated due to the increasing inaccessibility of this bureaucracy and its recognition as elitism. The public in J&K, being vulnerable economically, socially and psychologically, due to the past political turmoil of two decades and undue discrimination at the hands of the central government, portrayed a feeling and attitude of awe, fear and disgust towards the rising bureaucratic structure. The bureaucracy in J&K needs to desist from rampantly using its power, which draws its vitality from the resources allocated to it. At the same time, it needs to make a judicious use of these resources. The present paper depicts the rise of bureaucratic power in J&K, with its inherent pitfalls, if used indiscriminately. This paper also portrays the probability of its decline in case the reins are taken over by the citizenry as a result of an administrative revolution.

Abstract: In today world, life without electronics is unthinkable. It has been studied that for electronic devices to provide better efficiency and reliability in terms of speed, power-loss and cost, the fundamental component of each Integrated Circuit (IC) chip, namely the MOSFET (Metal Oxide Semiconductor Field Effect Transistor) needs to be reduced or ‘scaled’ down in size. Device scaling has produced remarkable results until further scaling beyond the 22-nm technology node has resulted in undesirable leakage currents in the MOS device by means of direct tunneling of electrons through the gate dielectric. Due to this leakage, the battery of any electronic gadget can be drained in minutes and the excessive heat produced by all the MOSFETs will reduce the efficiency. In order to solve this problem, materials like the oxides of hafnium and zirconium with a higher value of dielectric constant K are being used to replace the previously used silicon dioxide, so as to facilitate more device scaling with negligible leakages.

Abstract: Interpretive structural modeling (ISM) is one of the well-established methodologies for identifying relationships among specific items, which define the problems of an issue. This approach has been increasingly used by various researchers to represent the interrelationships among various elements related to the issue. . In general, there exists a direct correlation between various customer receptivity aspects. Thus it makes more natural approach to this kind of problems. ISM approach starts with an identification of variables, which are relevant to the problem or issue. Then a contextually relevant subordinate relation is chosen. Having decided the contextual relation, a structural self-interaction matrix (SSIM) is developed based on customer receptivity of variables. SSIM is then converted into a reachability matrix (RM) and its transitivity is checked. Once transitivity embedding is completed, a matrix model is obtained. Then, the partitioning of the elements and an extraction of the structural model called ISM is obtained. In this paper, key concept of ISM approach is discussed about the hazardous situations of Steel Re Rolling Mills (SRRMs) in detail.

Abstract: Arbiters are a fundamental component in systems containing shared resources, and a centralized arbiter is a tightly integrated design for its input requests. In this study, we propose a new centralized arbiter, which may be used in arbitration of a crossbar switch in NoC routers. As fabrication technology continues to improve, smaller feature sizes allow increasingly more integration of system components onto a single die. Communication between these components can become the limiting factor for performance unless embodying the correct scheduling algorithm. In this paper, we design iSLIP arbiter using iSLIP scheduling algorithm with mesh router for NoC. An iterative, round-robin algorithm, iSLIP can achieve 100% throughput for uniform traffic, yet is simple to implement in hardware. Prototype and commercial implementations of iSLIP exist in systems with aggregate bandwidths ranging from 50 to 500 Gb/s. When the traffic is nonuniform, iSLIP quickly adapts to a fair scheduling policy that is guaranteed never to starve an input queue. This new arbiter is fair for any input combinations and faster & it is designed using ModelSimSE 6.3f for simulation of code and xilinx for synthesis.

Abstract: Breast is the second commonest site involved by cancer in Indian women. It is the commonest cause of death in many developed countries in middle aged women and is becoming frequent in developing countries. Breast cancer is probably the most feared cancer in women because of its frequency and its psychological impact. Psychological trauma has lessened in recent years because of earlier diagnosis, more treatment options, the greater availability of reconstruction and rehabilitation programs including psychological counseling. The present study is the study of the risk factors (modifiable and non modifiable) in a rural population in south India.

Abstract: Over the last three decades, eating habits/ pattern and physical activity levels of children have also changed. The changed social environments associated to the increased incidences of malnutrition obesity and possibly micronutrient deficiencies. The changed social environments associated to the increased incidences of malnutrition and possibly micronutrient deficiencies. In this backdrop, this research attempts has been made to study the nutritional and health status of the school girls belonging to different socio-economic groups Representative sample of one hundred and twenty school girls each belonging to low and middle income group, in the age group of Eleven to Fifteen years were selected by simple random sampling technique. Results revealed that, Low income group girls consumed fewer nutrients when compared with middle income group. Somatic statuses of the children indicating that, height of the children of 11-13 ages from both the groups were slightly higher than NCHS standards but decreased in older children showing the long term nutritional deficiency. The BMI remained almost constant despite a significant increase in terms of increment in height and weight over the age of 11-15 years. Morbidity status of respondents indicated that, Low income group girls showed the high percent of clinical symptoms than middle income group. It was observed that, low income group girls were more prone to infections and diseases than the middle income group girls. Thus, the findings of the study are indicative of the fact that the prime reason for nutrition and health status of present day school girls is quality and quantity of food.

CCTV Cameras can prove to be a robust and sufficient solution in this direction. Images of the traffic captured with the help of CCTV Camera, can be processed to retrieve the required output about current traffic. This presents a model to count the traffic load by some parameters such as edge detection, histogram equalization, labeling and removing the noise with the help of median filter. The load computed can then be used to control the traffic signals.

Abstract: Vehicle number plate recognition is the most interesting and challenging research topic from past few years. It is shown that the number plates are different shape and size and also have different color in different countries. In India the most common vehicle number plate used yellow or white as background and black used as foreground color. In this paper we proposed a system to localization of number plate mainly for the vehicles in West Bengal (India) and segmented the numbers as to identify each number separately. This presents an approach based on simple and efficient morphological operation and sobel edge detection method. We also presents a simple approach to segmented all the letters and numbers used in the number plate. After reducing noise from the input image we try to enhance the contrast of the binarized image using histogram equalization. We mainly concentrate on two steps; one is to locate the number plate and second is to segment all the number and letters to identify each number separately.

Abstract: OFDM has several distinct challenges in the underwater channel environment. The underwater channel is known to be highly frequency selective with large delay and Doppler spreading as well as fast time variance. To overcome the poor communication environment between the underwater acoustic signal transmitter and receiver, previous research applied underwater acoustic OFDM communication system which had efficient bandwidth capacity and could mitigate multi-path delay spread effect via guard interval. Concurrently with this OFDM signal, additional data could be transmitted through spread spreading technique, which was called water-line technique. However, this decreased the performance of the OFDM modulation because the water-line signal degraded OFDM signal. An essential feature of this system is that it offers greater power and schemes with significant error protection for the transmission of sensor data information requiring a higher quality of service (QoS). The proposed underwater acoustic multimedia system employs high power, low speed modulation, and schemes providing significant error protection for the transmission of sensor data messages requiring a stringent bit-error rate (BER). In contrast, low power, high speed modulation, and less capable error protection schemes are provided for messages that can tolerate a high BER.

Abstract: In present times, the use of DG systems in large amounts in different power distribution systems has become very popular and is growing on with fast speed. Although it is considered that DG reduces losses and improves system voltage profile, this paper shows that this is not always true. The paper presents a GA-IPSO based approach which utilizes combined sensitivity factor analogy to optimally locate and size a multi-type DG in IEEE 57-bus test system with the aim of reducing power losses and improving the voltage profile. The multi-type DG can operate as; type 1 DG (DG generating real power only), type 2 DG (DG generating both real and active power) and type 3 DG (DG generating real power and absorbing reactive power). It further shows that though the system losses are reduced and the voltage profile improved with the location of the first DG, as the number of DGs increases this is not the case. It reaches a point where any further increase in number of DGs in the network results to an increase in power losses and a distortion in voltage profile.

Abstract: The Indian Premier League - IPL launched in 2008 has achieved a very high level of popularity with more than 140 million TV audiences and a brand valuation of more than 4 billion USD. The high publicity and glamour filled, franchisee owned cricketing event has also seen unprecedented money paid as franchisee fees, players fees and through advertisement revenue along with scandals of match fixing. The business model needs appreciation for integrating a number of complex processes such as entertainment, glamour, marketing, pricing and hard-hitting cricket. However, the recent couple of seasons indicate a decreasing trend in TV Ratings, reduced audience, fall in advertising rates and a withdrawal of franchises. This paper conducts a detailed analysis of the IPL case and examines 10 key issues that threaten the viability of the IPL strategy, the revenue model and if the event can sustain itself. The results indicate that the very high cost burden for franchisee owners means that they undergo losses making their ventures unprofitable. Thus, there is a danger that the event would be forced to shut down or forced to radically alter its avatar. The paper provides some strategic recommendations to overcome these issues and ensure that rational cost structures and expenditures are implemented to make the event viable.

Abstract: The phase Digital Divide has been applied to the gap that exists in most Countries between those with ready access to the tools of information and communication technology and the knowledge that they provide access to and those without such access skills. A further gap between the developed and under developed world in the uptake of technology is evident with in the global community and may be of even greater significant. The relevance of these strategies to developing countries and strategies for reducing the international digital divide are also explored. Libraries have long been essential agents in fostering peace and human values. Libraries are now operating digitally, and their digital services open up a new channel to the universe of knowledge and information connecting cultures across geographical and social boundaries. The phenomenon of digital discrimination prevailing among various social, political and working groups has led to the emergence of digital information rich and digital information poor groups within societies and perhaps in the global environment. This paper discusses how the digital divide can influence to the Indian scenario also to the global world.

Abstract: This study sought to determine the guidance and counselling services which Social Science students in one Government-owned university in Zimbabwe had received in high school and the guidance and counselling services that they desired upon entry into university. Variations in services received in high school and those desired at university were by school type of the respondents. More specifically, the study determined type of previous high school and provision of guidance and counselling programmes and attempted to assess if there were variations in guidance needs at university by previous school type. A survey research design was used. A self-administered questionnaire with mostly closed questions was given to first year students at the end of their second month at university. A sample size of 90 (M = 41; F = 49) volunteered, through informed consent, to participate in the study. Data were analysed using a t-test for independent samples, chi-square and bar graphs. Results showed existence of guidance and counselling in all former school types with mission, government and private schools having in-class lessons and services well known to their students. There is no significant difference between male and female students (t = -1.18; df =88; α = 0.05) but females indicated more favourable responses than males. Former school type and existence of programme (chi-square = 6.1; df = 6; α = 0.05) and type of school and curriculum areas (chi-square = 3.31; df = 6; α = 0.05) were independent. At university most students from former government, mission and private schools preferred guidance on learning in large classes, adjustment difficulties, career and large workloads while those from rural schools mostly preferred personal/social counselling.

Abstract: The Abouhenidi Gas Station was founded by my father, Mohammad Abouhenidi, in December 1999, in Yanbu Albahar, a small city in the west of Saudi Arabia (Figure 1). Only one type of gasoline was sold in Saudi Arabia at time, when the Ministry of Municipal and Rural Affairs had many rules for gas station owners and entrepreneurs. For instance, a certain distance between any two gas stations had to be observed in order not to create an excessive concentration of gas stations within one single area. This aim has now been translated into a policy according to which gas stations have to be located at a minimum of 500 meters distance from each other within a city, and 5 km if on a highway.

Abstract: Aim and Need- Current breed of students live in the tsunami of information. Which means that the students problem is less of obtaining information & more of retaining and organizing all the information that they require to ingest both during studies and afterwards to keep themselves updated. To achieve this, many students use numerous learning strategies like mnemonics, flow charts, abbreviations, maps etc. One such technique that help students in this task is called “Mind Mapping”. Unfortunately this technique has received little attention since its invention, an attempt was also made by us in utilizing this concept on Dental undergraduate students in teaching and evaluating them. The results were encouraging. We recommend this technique for all teachers/students. This review details the potential of mind mapping in learning, organizing and retrieving vast information that students acquire during their course.

Abstract: Experiments in tropical rocky intertidal habitats across the globe have identified various effects of biological and physical factors on algal assemblage. High- and mid-intertidal rocky shores in tropical areas are exposed, with varying degrees, to the same physical factors such as temperature, heat, desiccation, shore height, supply of sediment and nutrients that affects temperate rocky shores. The degree of exposure to physical extremes however determines the structure of assemblage in most tropical rocky shores. The low shore is often controlled by biological factors, i.e., grazing and predation by mollusks, fishes, amphipods, crabs, and iguanas, while the high shore is mainly controlled by physical factors. It appears that the keystone species concept may not apply to tropical rocky shore communities. Reasons for this include indirect effects, overlapping food requirements and a diffuse predation due to a diverse set of assemblage that may mask the effect of one species. Present paper compare the several studies carried out in Hong Kong and Panama on tropical rocky shore consumer interactions. Studies on the effects of physical disturbances in coastal areas such as storms or typhoons are rare and there were little studies dealing with interactions of the sub tidal coralline algae and the low shore algae in tropical areas. More experimental work across a variety of spatial and temporal scales are therefore needed to determine significant biological and physical processes affecting the structure of algal assemblage across broad areas in the tropics.

Abstract: The expansion in information technology and the need for large scale communication infrastructures has triggered the area of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). Network is a collection of wireless nodes these are communicates with each other without using any offered infrastructure, access point or centralized administration. Wireless sensor networks may consist of hundreds or even up to thousands of small dense devices, equipped with sensors (e.g. acoustic, seismic or image), that form a wireless network. Each sensor node in the network collects information from its surroundings and sends it to a base station, either from source sensor node to destination sensor node, i.e. multi-hop, or directly to the base station. This paper presents performance comparison of four popular wireless sensor network routing protocols i.e. Dynamic Source Routing (DSR), Optimized Link State Routing (OLSR), Fisheye State Routing Protocol (FSR) and Location - Aided Routing (LAR) in variation of nodes and random waypoint mobility. We used well known network simulator QualNet 5.0 from scalable networks to evaluate the performance analysis of above protocols. The metrics used for performance analysis of End to End delay (s), Average Jitter (s), Power consumption in receive mode, transmit mode, idle mode and battery consumption.

Abstract: Analyzing of failure size and the issues are attained through failure rate. Failure size is the probability of finding an input that causes a failure in the input domain. As testing progresses, failure size decreases due to debugging. The failure size at the termination of testing is called the attained failure rate. Using this measure, we compare the efficacies of partition testing, random testing, derive conditions that lead to the superiority of partition testing, and obtain optimal time allocations in partition testing. The core findings are presented in a decision tree to assist testers in test management.

Trees, shrubs and plants use an inherent structural design to expose their leaves, height dense to sunlight for photosynthesis. They do this determines their survival. Based on this we describe the coconut tree growing u to 30m(98 feet) tall, with pinnate leaves 4-6m(13-20feet) long to design a solar tree. Pinnate refers to a leaf resembling like a feather having the leaflets on each side of a common axis. It can be either even or odd. By this structured pattern that leaves follow to arrange themselves on a tree. With this arrangement we introduce a new idea to design a solar tree using nanowire solar cell.

Abstract: A Value Added Tax is a firm of consumption tax. From the perspective of the buyer, it’s tax on the purchase price. From that of the seller, it’s a tax only on the value added to a product, material, or service, from an accounting point of view, by this stage of its manufacture or distribution. The manufacturer remits to the government the difference between these two amounts, and retains the rest for themselves to offset the taxes they had previously paid on the inputs. The purpose of VAT is to generate tax revenues to the government similar to the corporate income tax or the personal income tax.

Abstract: People express their mental states, including emotions, thoughts, and desires, all the time through facial expressions, vocal nuances and gestures. Functional MRI or functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) is a type of specialized MRI scan. It measures the haemodynamic response (change in blood flow) related to neural activity in the brain or spinal cord of humans or other animals. It is one of the most recently developed forms of neuro-imaging. Since the early 1990s, fMRI has come to dominate the brain mapping field due to its relatively low invasiveness, absence of radiation exposure, and relatively wide availability.

Abstract: The present study was conducted to investigate the effects of different concentrations and combinations of plant growth regulators (PGRs) on callus induction of Tecomella undulata (Sm) Seem. The leaf segments were used as explants and cultured on Murashige and Skoog (MS) medium supplemented with different concentrations of auxins such as NAA, 2,4-D, IAA and cytokikinins like BAP and KIN alone and in combinations for callus induction.

Abstract: Wire-EDM is a highly complex process, which is characterized by non-linear behavior. Owing to unique capabilities of machining complex shapes and hard materials with high accuracy and fine surface finish, WEDM is used in various manufacturing industries. There has been on-going research to develop automated capabilities for WEDM by understanding the interaction mechanism of various input parameters to get the requisite output measures like MRR, Surface Finish etc.

Abstract: The paper deals with the study of steady laminar flow of an incompressible visco-elastic fluid referred to as Walter’s liquid B over an exponentially stretching sheet. The flow is assumed to be generated by applying two equal and opposite forces along the x-axis in such a way that the stretching of the boundary surface is of exponential order in x. Using quasi-linearization technique with a numerical approach, the numerical solution is obtained. The velocity profiles are obtained numerically and these are displayed through graphs for diverse values of visco-elastic parameter. The results are compared with those available in literature obtained through analytical procedures and are seen to be in good agreement.

Abstract: - In today era of globalization, the corporate world requires a world-class governance system. Corporate governance is about promoting corporate ethics, fairness, transparency and accountability. In recent years, the area of corporate governance has been in limelight and has attracted increased attention of academicians and researchers worldwide due to high-profile scandals and corporate collapses like Enron, WorldCom and Satyam. Despite the intuition that Good Governance would lead to Good Performance by firm, conclusive evidence on this relationship has been lacking.
