Soilfertility is an important aspect in agriculture. Fertile soils only produce high nutritive value crops. Nowadays agricultural soils are contaminated due to many reasons. Farmers use synthetic fertilizers and synthetic pesticides for crop production. They play a major role in soil fertility. Physicochemical parameters of soil enable the current status of soil fertility. The soil samples were collected in Erode. All the agricultural soils were acidic in nature. Electrical conductivity of all the samples showed that the soils were good for seed germination. Total dissolved solids and salinity were in appropriate level in all the samples. Organic carbon level were in sufficient level. Macronutrients were in medium level. Calcium and magnesium were in sufficient level in all the soil samples.

The work focused on reliable outcome from next generation artificial neural network (ANN). ANN was efficiently used for decision making on labeled and unlabeled data but problem was that it was always generated as a result though the short input data. The conventional ANN model is being used in some financial sectors for prediction and analysis of financial data, but it would not make an outcome due to less applicable data. Our objective is to design a neural network which will have the intelligence by which it can generate most prominent decision. A mathematical model of new generation artificial neural network called Intelligent Neural Network (INN) has been proposed, which would solve that problem and would make the decision like a human. The INN model has been designed with two layers of fully connected neurons, where the first layer neurons has taken input as the features of bacteria and produced input for hidden neurons; and in the second layer the output from hidden neurons provided as input of decision neurons and the output of decision neurons was the expected result. This model was trained by back propagation process by reducing Sum Squared Error(SSE) through Stochastic Gradient Descent(SGD) technique. Prediction accuracy of this model was 97.11% to distinguish medically important bacteria. This study would help to laboratory users to identify medically important bacteria in an easy way.

Nowadays, the recommender system is an important research area for online companies that suggest items and services to users like (last FM music, Netflix movies, and movie-lens). Building a recommendation system to meet users' preferences is very difficult due to rapidly increasing the size or volume of digital information. Also, the recommendation has many challenges that need to overcome like sparsity, accuracy, performance and novelty. In this paper, we build two new algorithms to solve the sparsity, accuracy and performance of the recommendation system. Firstly, we used association rule mining to find a hidden pattern and count numbers of played songs per transaction and compute similarities by cosine vector similarity to make a recommendation to users also taking into concern the rating merged with clustering technique. Secondly, we used K-means clustering algorithms with SVD (singular value decomposition) to reduce dimensionality, increase the performance, and solve sparsity and accuracy problems. Our experiments are applied on last FM music datasets and movie-lens datasets implicit and explicit feedback, we compare our new algorithms with k-means collaborative filtering using RMSE (root mean square error) to show the accuracy and performance of movie lens and measure the accuracy using precision, recall and, F- measure to show the accuracy between basic collaborative filtering and our two new algorithms. This experiment shows that using association rule is better than improved k-means while combining with SVD and basic collaborative filtering. But our new k-means and SVD algorithm has better performance than random collaborative filtering K-means.

With the massive growth in cloud computing, the data owners are interested in outsourcing their databases to the cloud. But the owners and the service providers have some hesitations to trust this domain. Thus it is mandatory to provide data privacy for sensitive data.However, encrypting these private data before outsourcing makes data utilization a difficult task. Several encryption based algorithms were developed by researchers to transfer the data securely from end to end. But existing works focused mainly on single dimensional query or undergo insufficient security guarantee, etc. Thus to overcome above challenges and to monitor the data transmissions in smart environment, a Secured Crypto based Data Outsourcing Model (SCDOM) is proposed. This paper utilizes privacy preservation scheme for detecting anomalies, an enhanced Blowfish technique for implementing encryption and decryption. Here, while receiving user encrypted data, MAC- Message Authentication Code is generated and then transmitted to Third Party Auditor(TPA) for verification. Once keys are verified, the private details are transmitted. From the experimentation results, it is observed that proposed SCDOM provides enhanced results than the conventional methods.

This paper tries to disentangle the challenges of implementation of collective action in business sector, the exit strategy to overcome such challenges, as well as the best practice of the implementation of collective action. In principle, corruption in terms of bribery requires a payer and a beneficiary. The former is related to some influential individuals within the private sector, while in the latter constitutes the government apparatus. However, those at private sector might serve as a payer and a payee since this sector grows gradually in developing and emerging economies. By working collectively, civil society can assist companies to create a promising business climate among competitors and can stimulate other individuals and organizations to cirvumvent bribery. In addition, the implementation of collective action in the corruption prone countries and sectors can make business transactions become translucent and foreseeable.

Wireless Local area networks are used at a large scale in present world. A large number of devices communicate in a WLAN but the channels used for this purpose are limited which gives birth to congestion in the network. The main challenge in WLANs is the allocation of resources. Two types of TCP flows i.e., uplink and downlink exist WLAN, but with their existence at the same time the network service is somewhat biased towards uplink due which the downlink transmission flow suffers. In this research paper, we propose an optimization scheme based on the working of Artificial Bee Colony Optimization algorithm for dynamic allocation of multi-queue buffer for TCP flow in WLANs.

Pathfinding is a necessary method in gaming, especially in 3D games. Path-finding is used by an object to find paths from one place to another based on the state of the map and other objects. Path-finding requires algorithms that can process quickly and produce the shortest path to reach a destination location. In this paper, path-finding is applied in Augmented Reality. The Intel RealSense camera is used to reconstruct the real environment and display virtual objects. The path-finding algorithm is reviewed that the A*, A* smooth, and Navigation Mesh algorithms. Each of these algorithms is implemented into the Unity 3D object game. Each object game will move simultaneously to the destination point with different starting positions and goals by avoiding many obstacles. It is obtained in the 3D simulation that the A* smooth algorithm is superior to the A* algorithm and NavMesh. The travel time required a game object with A* smooth algorithm is 1.54 seconds faster, and 1.4 seconds compared to A* and NavMesh. Virtual objects can use pathfinding algorithms as a navigation path in the real world. The navigation path is located in the grid area that generated by Intel RealSense cameras.

India as a federal polity is much discussed and debated issue among scholars. To understand the dynamic nature of contemporary Indian politics, it is essential for us to know how India can be seen as a federal polity regarding its nature, structure as well as function. Indian federalism itself constitute a puzzle which can be best understood through adopting a dynamic perspective by looking at the significant difference between constitutional setup and operational reality in its political system. India represents a unique federal model as a parliamentary federation with the combination of two contradictory model, i.e., parliamentarism and federalism. As a parliamentary federation, political parties are playing a very significant role to shape as well as influence the nature and working of India’s federal process. This article is an attempt to understand Indian federalism based on some selected literature on federalism and India’s context.

In the current situation, we come across various problems in health sector which can be solved with different ideas. Existing patient monitoring system, even in multispecialty hospitals are following traditional methods of maintaining records of patients in the form of hardcopies i.e., files, records, reports etc., which has lot of disadvantages and also this is not eco-friendly. In hospitals they also do various scanning, blood tests, X-rays and so on. But they provide reports of these in the form of hardcopies. What if the case, where they could upload data to a specific account, such that the doctor can easily checkout that and effectively provide medications to the patient? Currently available heart rate monitor watches or gloves are only used in gyms for fitness observations. Which is not actually connected to cloud for providing any graphs/reports, though it is not needed in that case. As health is the main point of concern, past and present record is much needed to diagnose correctly for present health condition. And in case the patient cannot describe the problem in detail, those records will do the job. In this research work attempts are made for implementation of patient monitoring system which consists of sensors connected to microcontroller, intended to acquire vitals from patient body. The accumulated data is synced to the Firebase database account of a particular patient. The uploaded data is utilized for generating reports in daily or weekly basis so that the report is very helpful for the doctor to diagnose fairly and quickly.

Big data contains great variety of data arrives in incrementing volume and with high velocity. The data sets are so voluminous that the conventional data processing software just can’t able to manage them. Hence, big data tools i.e. Hadoop came into the glare due to its high scalability, availability and the cluster environment mechanism which provides the facility to work in the distributed manner. One of the important components of Hadoop is MapReduce which is able to handle the unstructured data but to use this, high programming skills are needed. Therefore, due to the reason of high programming skill, users are now a days moving towards the tool i.e. Apache Pig, as we can analyze the data simply by executing the queries. In this paper, we analyze the gender ratio of India according to the age group of 0 to 24 from the year of 2001-2018 that is further analyzed through Pig Latin scripts and results are represented in the pictorial form. The government of India introduces a policy i.e. Two-Child Policy. The policies are implemented by disallowing the people with more than two children from serving the government. Firstly, the policy was implemented by Assam in 2017. The motive of this paper is to analyze whether the introduced policy of government is fulfilling or not.

The energy demands of the present world are increasing day by day with the reduction in availability of fossil fuel resources. In order to meet the energy demands, various automotive industries are focusingon alternative sources of energy in which biodiesel have a significant impact. Biodiesel has a great impact in reducing the emissions compared with the diesel. Among the various sources of biodiesel available, methanol is the better choice. But there are certain disadvantages of using this biodiesel in CI engines. It emits more nitrous oxide than diesel and also it has more fuel consumption. So, in order to eliminate these drawbacks, copper oxide (CuO) is used as a nano additive. The nanoparticles added to the biodiesel reduce the ignition delay during the combustion process which results in improved thermal efficiency. These additives also improve the brake specific fuel consumption. Nitrous oxide is formed only at higher temperatures. Nitrogen reacts with oxygen to form oxides of nitrogen at higher temperature. The addition of nano additives reduces the ignition delay period to increase the combustion process. It also increases the heat exchange rate and reduces the engine temperature. Thus, nitrous oxide emission is greatly reduced. Since the surface area is more for nanoparticles it is also a reason for reduction in emission. It also acts as an antioxidant to prevent the oxidation process. This reduces the formation of nitrous oxides at higher temperature and reduces the emission.

Generally, learning process that occurs in class is that students are given exercises and then they work on the formula given by the teacher. This work process is more on the process of how students use the formula. If a formula in mathematics is only given instantaneously by the teacher to his or her students, then it persistently will not provide the real learning process. Students only become recipient objects of knowledge. This is what makes acceptance finding ability (AFA) of elementary school students low. This research employs ADDIE (Analyzing, Designing, Developing, Implementing, and Evaluating) method, which aims at describing the acceptance finding ability of the students. Subjects in this research were elementary students aged 10-12 years. The results of this research stated that students' acceptance finding ability still needs to be continuously developed by giving non-routine problems, open problems, and complex problems. These problems will require students to think divergently-convergently.

Culture is an inherent part of human beings, so ethnic values, and religious values are things that must be considered by counselors. This is reinforced by the perceived resistance of the east to the theory of western counseling, thus encouraging the development of indigenous counseling ideas. The purpose of this study is to classify the formation of an indigenous counseling approach, so that it will facilitate the development of this approach in the future. This classification is done by analyzing the application of counseling that incorporates cultural and religious values. This study uses a qualitative meta-synthesis method, which has steps to identify the formation, explanation, and development of theories. The results of this study indicate that indigenous counseling arises by applying counseling that is associated with cultural and religious values to produce something new in the methods, interventions, techniques and approaches counseling. There are three forms of criteria applied in indigenous counseling, namely first, inserting a few cultural and religious elements in the application of existing counseling; Second, Adjusting the counseling approach with cultural and religious elements; Third, adopting cultural and religious elements to form a new counseling approach. Indigenous counseling has become a necessity that must be met, especially in societies that have strong cultural and religious values.

The aim of this paper is to examine all possible association among all the studied factor which influencing the health status among the elderly at Rumah Seri Kenangan (RSK), Pengkalan Chepa, Kelantan and RSK Bedong, Kedah. RSK is a government-funded public sheltered home for the elderly suffering from a lack of financial and family support. In this paper, four different methods have been applied in order to determine all the possible association which probably has a higher tendency towards the health status. Chi-square Analysis (CA), Binary Logistic Regression (BLR) and Multilayer Perceptron (MLP) were selected statistical tools for the factor determine as for the elderly at Rumah Seri Kenangan (RSK). The significant variable from CA will be used for the BLR analysis, for assessing the odd ratio. The next analysis is to conform (validate) the relationship between the dependent and independent variables. To achieve that the MLP procedure is applied. This methodology discovers the relationship between the target variable and the predictors for assessing health status among the elderlies. The obtained results from these analyses will be used as an indicator for improving the level of quality given to the elderly. In conclusion, there are two factors that contribute to the health status of the elderlies, gender factor, and duration of the stay at the RSK. The female elderly is more healthy compared to the male elderly. According to the duration of the stay, the elderly who had stayed more than 60 months is much healthier compared to the elderly who had to stay less than 60 months.

This study examines the impact of female director on the firm market based financial performance of listed Indian firms in an econometric modelling approach. Using a firm year unit of analysis, a sample of 60 BSE listed companies across various industries has been studied over a period of twelve financial years, namely FY 2006–2007 to FY 2017–2018. Using panel data analysis, the percentage of female directors on corporate board is taken as the independent variable and firm performance measured by two market based financial performance indicator Q (Tobin's Q) and Mv/Ev (Market Value to Enterprise value, as the dependent variables. The primary results of the study using panel least squares (PLS) and random effects (RE) estimation models point towards a positive and significant correlation between the percentage of female directors and Tobin q. However, results are found to be more strong when Mv/Ev been used as firm financial performance. The findings of the study indicate that the number of companies with no female directors is reducing across the 12 years of study. It may be due to the external pressure created by the new corporate governance code 2013, also, the number of companies with one or more, number of female directors been seen as increasing during the period of study. Still, very few companies can be seen keeping one-third of the director as female director; this could be due to the non-availability of a female director.

Long Term Evolution network or LTE network is a 4G network extension that provides higher data rate by combining multiple technologies and channels through a demand based selection of the appropriate one. This implements an evolved node base station (eNB). The Integrated eNB’s in 4G network are responsible for seamless switching between different technologies and channels. Such a switching decision is often affected by several parameters like available bandwidth, desired load,; inter channel interference, available signal to noise ratio, fading, downlink power and so on. Frequent switch between channels result in waste of a portion of bandwidth in control signal whereas delayed switching results in low packet delivery ratio and in turn low data rate. Hence, an optimal solution is desired to maintain high data rate under scalable 4G network. In this work, we propose an optimal channel selection and switching by suitably controlling the downlink power depending upon fuzzy classification of performance parameters. Results show that the proposed system improves effective data rate and packet delivery ratio in comparison with conventional linear techniques.

Lightning is an intense bright discharge of the ionized sky or a thin channel of luminous spark directed towards the earth through the air that could present considerable risk to mankind and also possibly cause significant damage to buildings, monuments, transmission lines etc. Hence, it is necessary to provide appropriate protection against such large currents and strong electromagnetic radiation that are created from lightning phenomenon. A domain of considerable significance that continues to present considerable challenges to the scientific fraternity in the field of lightning protection is in understanding the underlying physical development process of lightning and the consequent disaster mechanism. Researchers have carried out diverse experimental analysis to ascertain the role and characteristics of lightning which occurs due to discharge of the large amount of charge accumulated in the cloud. Lightning discharge occurring between the nearest clouds called Cloud-to-Cloud (CC) flash or discharges which travel as a stepped leader which reaches earth forming Cloud-to-Ground (CG) flash are of significant interest. The hazards caused by the lightning are invariably modelled and inferred as a consequence of the resulting return stroke formed during the process of stepped leader descending on to the earth or a grounded system. In this context, several researchers have developed and postulated models by representing properties of lightning return stroke utilizing experimental data such as time-based changes in the base current and its derivatives, return stroke speed and electromagnetic field etc to a substantial degree of success. Though return models based to gas dynamics, electromagnetics, transmission line, hybrid and leader attachment representations has been widely utilized by the scientific community recently, there has been renewed focus in understanding and implementing modelling of lightning return strokes based on hybrid models and representation based on leader attachment methods. This research study focuses on providing a comprehensive overview and detailed comparison of various categories in lightning return stroke models, in addition to appropriate assumptions, merits and limitations to facilitate better understanding on characteristics of lightning phenomenon and provide vital clues into implementation of return stroke modelling.

Dengue is one of popular infectious disease where mortality rate nowadays recorded one-third of the world’s population lived in the high risk areas of dengue infection. This study proposed a new hybrid models of dengue incidence rate (DIR) by using two statistical models known as negative binomial Generalised Additive Model (GAM) and Fuzzy C-Means (FCM) Model. The data used consists of response variable known as monthly DIR and monthly climatic and non-climatic variables that covers Selangor state of Malaysia for the period of January 2010 to August 2015. This study has successfully presents the statistically significant values for climatic and non-climatic as explanatory variables that influenced DIR. Statistical results show that the climatic factors which are rainfall at current month up to 3-month and number of rainy days at current month up to lag 3-month are significant to DIR. Besides, an interaction between rainfall and number of rainy days presents strong positive relationship to DIR. In addition, non-climatic factors such as population density, number of locality and lag DIR from 1-month to 3-month also describe statistical significant relationship towards DIR. Meanwhile, for both of clustering techniques applied which are district data clustering and FCM data clustering, four models have been developed known as Model B, Model C, Model D and Model E with Model A is from the original dataset. Comparison values of Deviance (D), Akaike Information Criteria (AIC) and Bayesian Information Criteria (BIC) conclude that two new models with lowest values of D, AIC and BIC known as Model C and Model E could potentially present dengue incidence in Selangor, Malaysia from January 2010 to August 2015.

Agriculture is the best utility region especially inside the developing worldwide areas like India. Usage of records age in agriculture can substitute the circumstance of decision making and Farmers can yield in higher manner. About portion of the number of inhabitants in India relies upon on farming for its occupation however its commitment towards the GDP of India is just 14 percent. One suitable explanation behind this is the deficiency of adequate decision making by farmers on yield prediction. There isn't any framework in location to suggest farmer what plants to grow. The proposed machine learning approach aims at predicting the best yielded crop for a particular region by analyzing various atmospheric factors like rainfall, temperature, humidity etc., and land factors like soil pH, soil type including past records of crops grown. Finally our system is expected to predict the best yield based on dataset we have collected.

A human system is a tri-unity with soul, mind and body comprises with various integrated organ system. Soul and mind are the main source of energy that control the physiological and spiritual processes of the human body in which the brain is regarded as microprocessor and worked together with mind. The soul is considered as super-controller and universal consciousness energy state in the body. The present study is designed to understand the quantum states of soul and mind of embedded human system and their relationships. The quantum states and flow of energy are illustrated using band theory and feedback circuit. The role, effect and relationships of yoga, meditation and spirituality were also analyzed. It has been found that soul is an ultimate source of positive energy, modulates the mind and physiological functions of the body and helps to establish a secure communication with the spirituality. The mind with both positive and negative energies, plays an important role for controlling the physiological processes of the body. The yoga, meditation and spirituality provides positive energy to the body, mind and soul and helps to eliminate the negative energy generated by the components of the embedded human body. The study provides deep insight about the relationship, interaction and coordination of soul, mind and body. We hope that the present study will provide a support in understanding the scientific basis of internal energy and informational knowledge to bridge the gap between modern and Vedic sciences in overall integrated multidimensional function of the human system.

The wireless sensor networks (WSN) are having both the sensor and actuator nodes. These nodes are connected with each other using wireless links. The actuator nodes act as link nodes to collect the data from all other sensor nodes. In this paper, we proposed a new routing protocol that provides quality of service in terms of less energy consumption and less delay. The network consists of cluster heads (CHs) which is used to act as an actuator for gathering the information from all other sensor nodes. Those cluster heads (CHs) are selected based on their connectivity and energy capability to reach the destination, the data are looted by using this delay and energy-sensitive routing protocols based on-demand routing technique. This protocol has very little delay and energy consumption. This evaluation was done by the simulations. The result show that it will out performs than the existing systems.

Pathological reactions of the body associated with the development of a patient’s symptom complex of intolerance to metal alloys are some of the complications in prosthodontics. This work is aimed at optimizing the results of the individual selection of dental metal alloys for preventing the development of intolerance to orthopedic fixed structures. A survey was conducted with the participation of 73 patients (30 males and 43 females) aged 22 to 70 years. They were divided into two groups. The first group included patients (n=31), who did not have orthopedic metal structures (control group). The second group consisted of patients (n=42) with stamped-brazed metal orthopedic structures with a nitride-titanium coating, as well as ceramic-metal and metal-plastic dentures. Various manifestations of intolerance to metal alloys were observed in all patients of this group. A study was made of the electrical conductivity of biologically active points of the “lymphatic meridian state” and “head allergy” in patients with intolerance to metal orthopedic dental structures, based on the methods by V. Nakatani and R. Voll. Such denture construction materials as stainless steel 20Kh18N9T, cobalt-chromium alloy “Vitalium” and nickel-chromium alloy “Viron-88” were tested. It was revealed that when using the Vitalium alloy, the risk of individual hypersensitivity to dental structural metal alloys is the least. The survey results indicate the dominant role of concomitant pathology (92.85%) in the development of “intolerance to structural metals” and demonstrate the formation of an endless circle (concomitant pathology leads to the emergence of “intolerance”, which in turn worsens the course of somatic diseases). The development of “intolerance” when using combined constructions (metal + ceramics) makes it difficult to conduct differential diagnosis and, accordingly, treatment tactics. The analysis of the results shows the sufficient sensitivity of electropuncture diagnostic methods in identifying intolerance to metal orthopedic structures. These methods make it possible to determine a patient’s predisposition to individual hypersensitivity to dental alloys, to identify the incompatibility of certain metals with a patient’s body, and to select the most compatible materials with regard to the role of concomitant pathology. The conducted study allowed us to develop a two-step algorithm of diagnostic measures for patients at risk of hypersensitivity to dental metal alloys.

The Mobile Ad hoc Network (MANET) does not have a stable state and it is constantly changing its structure, so need a good self-regulating technique. There is another problem with this network, namely the problem of information exchange because the network is constantly changing and the communication is complicated. Clustering technology is a good best technique that has been repeatedly tested by many researchers and has been talked about in many research articles. Using this self-regulating method, it build a good topology in the MANET network. In this clustering method, the network is divided into several groups, where each cluster head is elected. The simplest technique of clustering is to ensure the consistency of the MANET network topology as much as possible. Therefore, the use of clustering method in this mobile ad hoc network is simplified to facilitate the communication of various types of algorithms and techniques. Communication using this cluster method on the MANET network takes place in two stages. In the first case, information is only transmitted to individuals within a group. In the second case, information is transmitted from one group to another, that is, to all groups in the network. The clustering group is chosen to maintain the information that is good for this clustering team and send it to the appropriate forecasts. Each cluster head is selected for each group and select this cluster head is based on the WCA (Weighted Cluster Algorithm). Comprise of Cluster based Stretch & Shrink method and the new strategy is dealt with in this research paper, which can confirm its topology stability and the network's load. This new method can reduce the instability of the network and increase its stability. Whenever the clustering load balance is increased, the group is split into two group is called shrink method. At the same time clustering balance density decreases, this group is merged together with a similar low density group known as stretch method.Thus when the density in the cluster decreases or increases, the balance of the group is controlled by the threshold value to ensure the stability of the network. The stretch & shrink method has been compared with the bench mark algorithm and the significant result has produced.

The smart city concept is a link between digital world and the physical world. The smart city is designed and constructed by using advanced techniques which consist of sensors, electronics and networks. However, automatic information flow and connection between IoT devices creates new security risks. If data can be accessed remotely, it means that a cybercriminal could also access it. Moreover, connectivity is the essence of IoT. If multiple devices are connected to the same network, it means that cybercriminals have multiple access points. Understanding how wireless sensor technology works is crucial before deploying IoT applications. In this article, we explore the understanding through: (1) vulnerabilities on wireless sensors and techniques to avoid them, (2) emerging wireless standards for sensors, and (3) what role these standards will play in the future.

The present scenario has entirely been influenced by IT, which is inspiring the processes of HR and HRM departments. Digital opportunities are given the place of old methods of performing services of HRM inside the business organisations and public organisations. Routine tasks of the organisation have been enabled in innovative ways through the power of virtual work environment by Information and communication Technologies(ICT).In earlier 1980s HR functions are performed with the help of IT for administrative processes, preliminary pay roll functions, through additional attention heads to transformational HR practices(DeSanctis 1986). The collaboration between Human Resource and IT results in automation of tedious and time-consuming tasks in HR by speeding up transaction processing, and by decreasing information errors. It enhances the tracking and control of HR actions. (Bondarouk et al., 2009). Previous literature reviews provide adequate ideas about the factors which influence the attitude towards e-HRM adoption. Among many aspects, IT infrastructure of the company and IT expertise of employees are most influencing factors towards adoption of e-HRM in an organisation.

This paper reports on the three-dimensional analysis of the upsetting process using Deform 3D simulation software. The influence of both die moving during the metal upsetting process denoted as modified upsetting process (similar to unconstrained closed die forging) was compared to conventional upsetting (when only one die moves) was investigated. From the upsetting simulation process the deformation load, stress and strain distribution results were obtained. The simulation results showed that the modified upsetting process had a lower deformation load and effective stress compared to the conventional upsetting process. However, the effective strain values were relatively similar for both cases. The effective stress and strain distribution were inhomogeneous, which was attributed to the changes in the deformation temperature. For sustainable industrial processes where energy consumption and production rates are significant, the modified upsetting process was recommended.

Vehicular Ad-hoc Networks (VANET) has been focused on driving safety, driving efficiency and entertainment in road networks. Vehicular networks are the subset of Mobile Ad-hoc Networks (MANET). Each and every vehicle is considered as a node. One node can directly communicate with another node within its transmission range. When the nodes communicate, there is a chance of malicious attackers to intrude and degrade the performance of the entire vehicular network. Malicious node detection is a vital security issue for safety-related applications. The malicious vehicle should be detected and revoked to the smooth functioning of the vehicular communication system. The malicious nodes are revoked to avoid flooding of any wrong message from these may lead to adverse effects like traffic jam and accidents. A defense technique such as certificate revocation is devised to eradicate and provide protection against the malicious nodes that behaves like a legitimate node. The revoked information of the non-legitimate node should be disseminated to the nodes in the vehicular network. In this paper, a new model for Certificate revocation scheme for VANET is proposed to overcome the flaws of Certificate Revocation List (CRL). Cluster-based communication and Merkle Hash Tree Certificate Revocation model (C2MTCR) is based on clustering and construction of Merkle Hash Tree to revoke the malicious certificates from the vehicular networks. The proposed work is simulated using Network Simulator (NS2) and Power BI tool and the results are compared with the existing works.

Cloud computing is a current model for accessing services via web. In such model, resources are circulated to clients in all around the globe for accessing services more rapidly. This model has several difficulties such as load-balancing, safety measures, resource scheduling scaling, Quality of Service (QoS) control, service accessibility and data center energy utilization. Among these, one of the most fundamental difficulties is load-balancing. This is a practice of allocating and re-allocating the load among the accessible resources for maximizing the throughput when reducing response time, energy utilization, resource consumption and cost. Therefore, an efficient load-balancing scheme is needed to improving the performance of cloud computing. Several load-balancing algorithms in cloud computing have been proposed by different researchers in the past years. In this paper, some of them are surveyed with those merits and demerits to further enhance the load-balancing in cloud using recent algorithms.

Here in existing framework in these days many shopkeepers are using the old items which causes diseases to the people who are using those old items. What's more, a portion of the people in the shop are changing that all or more dates on the cover and making it like a different product in the wake of the time they're changing that everything spreads. In contrast to their physicians, these problems often arise in the healing facility medicine, providing distinctive types of medication for various sicknesses. At any point we know the medical shop they are going to give different medications for sickness. In order to overcome each of these problems, at first the customer must keep each of the items id. Currently after logging in to the businessperson account they need to transfer each of the insights regarding items and they need to keep up with the item and finish the date all they need to keep up in the wake of all the data being transferred to the administrator group (carefulness group) now the administrator group will handle all the data and they will be able to investigate and give all the information. At that point, businessperson will make an offer for unique Id objects, then it will simply not be capable of squandering those things. It will show the date of manufacture and the date of termination in case it was fake it will not show any outcome. If any customer considers this way, they can send a post.

This article aims to analyze the political action of the community as a model of practice that will create understanding the dominance of economic capital into political tools. The practice of politics in the development has experienced a shift from the dominance of status to economic dominance. The approach used in this paper is library research, with data analysis techniques in the form of content analysis with the aim of obtaining valid inferences and can be re-examined based on the context. The dominance of economics was born as a result of the development of the logic of the consumerist, a political approach that is pragmatic, the growth of false consciousness which creates a society without identity. Economic dominance as a representation of political practices to encourage the creation of social change, such a widespread culture of consumerism and hedonism in political behavior, this condition was instituted in the structure of the culture of the community, so politics is no longer based on rational logic, but includes substantial emotions of a person. The situation systematically shift the values of tradition and lead to the practice of politics. The dominance of economic capital to be an illustration of the conceptual and historical to understand the shift in political practices.

Sediment Review (BPS) uses erosion simulations using geospatial simulations. The amount of erosion was analyzed using a general version released by the soil (USLE) using ArcGIS software version 9.2. Sources of data and maps obtained from relevant agencies. A satellite imagery map for the Mamasa watershed area obtained on 28 July 2009 was obtained from LAPAN. Data input is initiated by digitizing analogue maps and satellite imagery maps, where georeferenced processes have previously been made to rectify maps so that they become digital maps. The resulting digital map consists of USLE thematic maps (erosivity maps, erodibility maps, long slope maps, and land cover maps). The USLE thematic map is then overlaid resulting in an erosion map. The amount of erosion was obtained from the calculation of USLE attribute data. Sediment rates are calculated using the NLS formula (Sediment Release Ratio). The location and number of BPS are based on sediment rate and distribution. The results showed that erosion rates with very high criteria occurred on farmland and plantations. While the highest sediment rate occurred in Leko-01, Merang and Malobo-Lalaki Sub Watersheds. As many as 26 BPS points are scattered in 16 Sub Watersheds in the upstream, middle, and downstream areas of the Mamasa watershed.

This research is quantitative research with multiple linear regression models. The sample used in this research is all nonfinancial companies listed on the Indonesia Stock Exchange (IDX). The type of data used in this study is secondary data in the form of financial statements and annual reports from 2012 to 2016. The sample selection using a purposive sampling method with the number of samples amounted to 344 observations. This study uses data with the same number of five years, so that this study employs panel data. This study suggests bonuses are negatively associated with earnings quality. This manager's opportunistic behavior is in line with the hypothesis plan bonus. Debt financing is positively associated with earnings quality. Tax avoidance is negatively associated with earnings quality. Corporate governance is not associated with earnings quality. Corporate governance is expected to be the company's control mechanism to reduce earnings management behavior, which can reduce earnings quality. Corporate governance does not weaken the influence of bonuses on earnings quality. The previous discussion has confirmed that corporate governance does not affect the quality of earnings, and after research, corporate governance is also unable to limit the opportunistic behavior of managers driven by bonus motivation. Corporate governance does not weaken the influence of debt financing on earnings quality. Corporate governance does not weaken the effect of tax avoidance on the quality of earnings. In line with the previous discussion, this result may suggest in Indonesia; corporate governance has not been considered as a need and corporate culture.

In previous days, before buying a product, people used to get suggestions from our close friends, family or people known. This is the basic idea of recommender systems. Recommender systems work with the same idea of predicting a product that a customer may like to buy. Recommender systems can be used in different areas to recommend products such as books, apparel, accessories, movies according to the items viewed. A recommender system is a system that helps to expect and recommend similar products to the given input of the product. In many online e-commerce websites like Amazon, Myntra and other sites, one can find sections like “recommended for you”, “products related to this item”, “customers also viewed” when a person views certain product.

The main goal of this study was to identify psychological features of frustration situations in youth age. The research was conducted under the among students of various institutes aged 17 to 23 years, full-time students in the first and fourth courses in various professional orientations. It was found that about half of Experimental Group 1 (48% of respondents) and a third of Experimental Group 2 respondents (35%) identify as the most significant in their lives frustration situations that are related to the satisfaction of social needs. There is a striking difference in the levels of frustration between first-year and fourth-year students: first-year students experience greater frustration. With the increase in the level of frustration, there is a noticeable increase in the feeling of loneliness among the respondents of both experimental groups. For students of both experimental groups in frustrated situations are more characterized by increased fixation on the frustration situations themselves. It was found that with a decrease in the level of frustration tolerance, the level of frustration of a person increases and vice versa. The results of the study suggest that the psychological consequences, level and breadth of the manifestations of experiences of frustration situations are closely related to the level of frustration tolerance.

Fish feeds have been relying on protein sources from fish meal which are getting more expensive over time, therefore an alternative source of protein is needed as a source of fish meal protein. Earthworm (Lumbricus rubellus) is one alternative that meets the requirements as a source of protein because its nutrient content is relatively high, besides that earthworms are also quite easy to be cultivated so that farmers can produce it themselves. The purpose of this study was to determine the results of differences in the types of media for cultivating earthworms on growth and nutrient content of earthworms and to determine the effect of earthworm flour sustution on fish meal as the main protein source in common carp feed formulations. Cultivation of earthworms on different organic wastes, namely a combination of mushroom log and cow dung with media treatment doses of mushroom log worm 100%, mushroom log 75% and cow dung 25%, mushroom log 50% and 50% cow dung, 25% log mushroom and 75% cow dung, and 100% sai dung. The best results from cultivation on different organic wastes will be used as a substitute material for substituting fish meal as a source of animal protein in carp. Substitution of earthworm flour treatment against fish meal with treatments A (0%), B (25%), C (50%), D (75%) and E (100%). The main parameters observed included survival rate, specific growth rate, feed conversion ratio, and protein efficiency ratio,.

Wireless sensor networks are the collection of tiny and compact devices are deployed in the particular area for monitoring some parameters. Forest monitoring, habitat monitoring, industrial monitoring and structural monitoring are the trending applications in sensor networks. However due to scarcity of limited resources such as memory, transmission range, Bandwidth and Battery power, life time improvement of the sensor network is the major problem facing by the researcher. To get better life time of the sensor network, mobile sink is used in the reserved forest monitoring application. A novel Ant swarm approach is proposed for data aggregation through mobile sink to prolong the life span and reduce the overhead of sensor network. For better enhancement of lifetime of individual entity in the sensor network for forest monitoring, Drones can be used to carry the sink node for data aggregation. Mobile sink node is continuously transmitting the tokens to the sensor node within the coverage area of sink node. Sensor nodes send the sensed data with its node identity after arrival of token message from the sink. When the sink node is out of transmission range from any sensor node then the sensed data is forwarded with neighbor node continuously and check whether the sink node is in transmission range or not. By using the concept of ant line walking, data aggregation is done with minimal overhead and better lifetime improvement in WSN. Simulation results show that the proposed method enhance the network performance in terms of different performance evaluation metrics. The life time is improved with 30 to 40% when compared with various existing mobile sink data aggregation approach.

The panoply of biosensors constituting Body Sensor Networks (BSN) is an imperative application of the Internet of Things (IoT) in Biomedical Engineering. Medical post-discharge monitoring is an emerging application of IoT where BSNs need to establish Low Power Networks (LPNs) for data exchange. Body sensors and radio forming BSNs are restricted in power especially when the patient is on the move. Power restrictions impose low computational capability of transceivers along with the need for low power connectivity with the monitoring hub. This study investigates the suitability of Chirp Spread Spectrum (CSS) as a modulation scheme for BSNs. CSS is characterized by inherent interference rejection properties and resilience to multipath fading and Doppler effects. Low power capability together with operation at Industry Scientific and Medical (ISM) band makes CSS ideal for setting up a low-cost ad-hoc network of bio-sensors in post-discharge monitoring. This study evaluates the suitability of CSS for establishing LPNs of bio-sensors through simulation of linear chirps at ISM band 868 MHz A mathematical model of chirp is explained and orthogonality with inverse chirps is demonstrated. Performances for Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR) are evaluated for different spreading factors (SF).

In this article, the results of medicinal compounds polymeric forms classification and principles of their development are discussing. The basic requirements for carrier polymers and polymers with own biological activity are developed. The main differences in creating low-molecular drugs, their polymer forms and polymers with their own biological activity. Polications assigned to the group of ionenes were isolated and examined separately. Heterochain polymers containing quaternary nitrogen atoms at certain distances from each other are classified as ionenes. Ionenes have high bactericidal activity depending on the structure, which is explained by their adsorption to the bacterial cell walls. The formation of polyelectrolyte complexes with DNA is possible with the penetration of ionenes into bacteria cells. Polyanions are also referred to polymer forms of medical substances. Biological effect of exogenous polyanions is explained by competitive mechanisms rather than with the formation of polycomplexes. Weak biological activity of a number of polyanions has been established as antitumor, immunomodulatory, interferon-inducing and other activities. However, due to weak biological activity, they cannot be used in practical medicine. The scientific work also examined the molecular construction of medicinal polymers that provide prolongation, selectivity, reduced side effects, preservation of therapeutic concentration in the body, reduced toxicity and increased specific effects of the drug. Were established limitations for carrier polymers in molecular construction and creation of polymer forms of drugs. A list of classes of drugs, for which the creation of their dosage forms is relevant, was also defined. Based on the results of the research, it was concluded that drug polymers and practical possibilities of their creation are in many cases unique and cannot be achieved with the use of low molecular weight drugs.

The fluvial dynamics of two major tributaries of the Brahmaputra River, the Dikhow and the Dhansiri in a part of the upper reach of the Brahmaputra valley (Assam, India) adjacent to the Mikir hills and the Naga Patkai thrust belt has been studied over a period of ninety plus years (1915-2008) in the GIS environment by using topographic maps, satellite imageries, SRTM data, and seismotectonic information of the area. The temporal change in the morphological signature of the Dikhow River is least which is represented in the high correlation coefficient of its sinuosity values for different segments over the aforesaid period. The Dhansiri River on the contrary shows a very poor correlation coefficient for the same parameter. This is most probably due to the ongoing neo-tectonism about the Jorhat fault. The study makes an effort to locate areas of valley subsidence as well as upliftment. When compared with the available database of basement, it was observed that the Jorhat fault separates the study area distinctly into two tectonic blocks, one is the Dhansiri valley on the south-western part of the Jorhat fault, and the other is the subset of the upper reach of the Brahmaputra valley. A conceptualized ‘pop-up’ model is proposed, that relates the Himalayan frontal thrust (HFT) with the popping up Mikir Hills in the eastern front from one end and westward thrust front of the Naga thrust in the other end causing upliftment of south western part of the study area (Dhansiri valley) that explains clearly the avulsive tendency in the Dhansiri River and its drastic change in the geomorphological signature.

This article discusses the history of researches on the grammatical category of cases in the Hindi language. While writing this article, number of linguists views on cases were found and analyzed fully. According to the results of our research, two group of linguists were formed on the cases of Hindi language. The first group support that there are six cases in Hindi language and the second group believes the Hindi has eight cases. Their supporting arguments are studied and it is concluded that the forms of nouns in the Hindi language depend on their relation to gender and the types of word roots. This indicates that in the Indo-Aryan languages, the same category of peculiarity of the same noun is fragmentary and does not have a single integrity.

The Construction Industry is a highly important contributor to the GDP of the United Arab Emirates (UAE). This research study aims to explore the factors that affect the success of construction projects in UAE. This study is focused not only on the positive factors but also the limiting factors that prove to be an obstacle to the growth of the construction industry in UAE. Secondary analysis has critically analysed literature pertaining to the subject and primary analysis employed is a mixed method of both qualitative and quantitative analysis also known as triangulation methodology, Thus, using qualitative and quantitative data analysis techniques, using structured questions as the research instrument and interviews as the method information was collated from five randomly selected construction companies in UAE. For quantitative analysis, the sample selected primarily comprises 30 project management personnel and for Qualitative Analysis 5 senior managers such as project general manager and director of projects and other senior positions, have been selected for the interview. Through Data Analysis and the various responses collated from the respondents it was identified that timely allocation of quality and competent resources combined with a longer-term vision of the leadership is a critical success factor for the construction industry. Application of project management tool and interdepartmental collaboration seemed to have a limited role to play in the success of the projects. It was also identified that the major limitation regarding factors affecting construction projects in UAE is the extreme weather conditions. Non-prescriptive and unclear labour as well as health and safety regulations seem to be causing delays in applying the mandated requirements and causes hindrances in terms of non-compliances and violation notices from authorities. Having employees from various cultural backgrounds and nationalities is also another limiting factor that creates difficulty in streamlining the construction process.

Leakage of sensitive data may leads to the loss of confidential and integrity. Some of the data may be leaked and found on web or untrusted users. Distributor have to take upon these situations in order to maintain data confidentiality and ensure a safe data transaction. Many small business authorities have data leak issues via internet or other means. We would like to propose a alternative methodology to implement in real world and it is different from traditional methods. Traditional methods contain “watermarking” and in some cases we can also inject “realistic but fake” data records to further improve our chances of detecting leakage and identifying the guilty party. But this also will not work if the guilt agent knows the fake objects. So the other method for getting the guilt agents is to be determined. Many methods have been in existence but every method is being override by other means using complex methodologies and by various combinations of the algorithms. These complex methods would secure much better than older ones. We are finding the agents by taking the parameters like how much time he is spending in the data, how many times he opened that file etc.... we can find the probability if the probability is more than the threshold value then we can conclude that the agent had compromised. In this model we use the previous methods knowledge to predict the agents or to over come in the solution.

Lung cancer classification can be identified to the middle aged persons nowadays. Early prediction and classification of cancer stage is mandate to take counter measures to treatment and easy diagnosis. The scanned CT images are mostly used to obtain the occurrence of lung small cell cancer. In existing techniques used by machine learning traditional techniques and advanced deep learning (DL), it can classify the cancer occurrence and predict the feasible treatment based on diagnosis. It is mandate to predict and find the level or stages of the lung cancer based on tumor size and it should be properly classified to predict better treatments. Here it is proposed to categorize the stages of lung cancer and predict the diagnosis way using fully convolution neural network (FCN).

This article analyzes the works of the talented writer of Afghan storytelling, Rahnavard Zaryab, in particular, his stories such as “Coffin maker” and “Photography Teacher”. Unlike traditional Afghan writers, the author is interested in a description of the processes taking place in the human heart. He tries to express an inner psychological attitude towards reality rather than incident is a priority. A number of the author's stories are characterized by a desire to uncover such aspects of the human psyche. At the same time, the author enriches the narrative with a variety of scenes, depicting the processes taking place in the spirit of the hero. In order to broaden the story, the story was compared with the story of Uzbek writer Nazar Eshanqul's “The man who led the monkey”.

Image processing in the future will dramatically change the experience of the human brain. A vast number of applications, software, and techniques for image processing help extract complex image features. While image processing works beyond multidimensional today and see what the image actually contains. Many techniques that draw on images in real time, but the real core is image processing. This paper addresses an overview of technologies, tools and techniques for measurement of various foot images of human being and obtain the foot dimensions using image processing and EMD algorithm in MATLAB software. Measuring and valuing a distance between two points is important in the processing of objects. The idea is to make the Euclidean distance between two points a measure of how near (or distant) two points are to each other based on two ranges. Using this we can obtain the foot measurements with less efforts and in affordable price. The need to extract information from foot images and interpret their content was the driving factor in major footwear manufacturing industries and also in health care for proving artificial legs.

Learning should be no longer static and discrete but continuous and engaging. This is because the domain of learning is not mere concepts and theories, quizzes and exercises, but real problems and real questions, and answers to real questions lead inevitably to more questions. The radical change that takes place so fast from following digital and technological revolutions, doing nothing is tantamount to sliding backward. Most of our education may be dangerously close to being insignificant or obsolete. Learning seems to be in the survival mode, being overwhelmed with the challenges of a changing world. Learning happens when we are open to it and in any unforeseen situation. Therefore, we need to transcend our superficial way of learning but rather our learning needs to give us high adaptability in any ambiguous circumstances to deal with. We must reframe, rethink, and recapture what is learning to learn and self-development – learning that takes place everywhere and continuously.

One of the eye infections is glaucoma and its effects on the optic nerve and after some time end up genuine because of strain and pressure in the mind. The infections are caused inside the eye by the progression of intraocular pressure. The retina is a layer of tissue at the forefront of an eye that detects light and sends the signal to the mind. The infections are obtained and may not appear later in time. In the event that the infection is distinguished early, it stays away from the visual field setback. The essential Open Angle Glaucoma (OAG) management is a standout amongst the most critical and most difficult parts of the glaucoma location. The different discoveries that rely upon conclusion of glaucoma are intraocular weight, visual field misfortune, and optical nerve glass. Glaucoma recognition should be possible by different advances perimetry, tonometry, ophthalmoscopy, pachymetry, gonioscopy. To address the disease advanced methodologies are proposed such as prepossessing using RLS (Recursive least square) algorithm to improve the quality of the image. The image is obtained is low contrast and consists of speckle-noise which is difficult to analyze the image. The removal of this noise preprocessing is done. The evacuation of this commotion preprocessing is finished. The objective of research work is to build up a calculation for the programmed discovery of glaucoma infection and its arrangement for anomalous and typical eye pictures. To characterize the pictures as typical or strange the classifier clients are SVM, arbitrary woodland, ANN, SOM, and Naive Bays, for finding the better precision discover which classifier is useful for grouping of ordinary retinal pictures and glaucomatous pictures. Here, the blends of data from auxiliary and useful tests are engaged with the early finding of glaucoma. In the examination work vitality and basic highlights are considered. By utilizing 2D DWT (two dimension subgroups disintegration) vitality include extraction are done and the achievement is done using MATLAB. For the overall work of this paper, Graphical User Interface (GUI) is created to make user-friendly and to browse the database image for further process. Each stage of the operation is automatically applied for the next process until classifications.

Problems, related with the formation of religious space and confessional identity, occupy a special place in the field of cultural security. Today the confessional space of each region is formed with the active participation of transnational religious networks. It leads to the rise of conflict level especially in heterotopic spaces. Cultural and confessional diversity in regions are inherently unstable, that's why the higher degree of "diversity", the greater risks of ethno-conflict situations. One of such place is Astrakhan region, the southern gateway to Russia. This territorial space is characterized by interethnic contacts with representatives of neighboring states. Long cohabitation of different ethnic groups in close proximity, in the same natural conditions, similar ways of historical development lead, as a rule, to the commonality of material and spiritual culture, when a synthesized cultural tradition is gradually formed and includes both cultural and religious values of the whole society and its own peculiarities. In these conditions, the model of confessional space formation depends largely on dynamic changes, determined not only by the heterotopicity of the research territory, but also by the activity of regional religious actors engaged in proselytic activity in the virtual space.

This paper focuses on the development of a mathematical model for saltwater intrusion modeling in a coastal aquifer and. At first, we used the mass conservation and Darcy’s law to derive the governing equation in terms of hydraulic head. We chose mixing zone approach or variable-density and dispersion approach; the latter consists of coupling the flow and transport equations using a state equation that relates the solute density to its concentration with the following assumptions: • The temporal variations of the density are very important compared to its spatial variations; • neglecting the density variation in the solute transport equation. Finally, we proposed a mathematical model to study the behavior of the saltwater intrusion in heterogeneous anisotropic aquifer in unsteady state and it is also use for the optimal use of groundwater of an aquifer.

In our country, the agriculture is one of the foremost business which is done by many people. The mint is the important crop which are cultivated in a wide variety of soil and weather conditions. The purpose of the product is to pluck the mint and then it can be stored in a separate tray or container. There are nearly around 60,000 hectares of land with estimated production of 12,000 tonnes of mint is cultivated in India. The mint is used by all class peoples due to its low cost. The operation of the project is the mint is plucked by using a cam operated mechanism. During the first 180-degree rotation of the roller contact in the cam profile the mint leaves gets clamped by the movable arm and then it is plucked. Then during the next 180-degree rotation of the roller in the cam profile the movable arm gets release and then the plucked leaves are stored in the separate tray. For the operation purpose there is no need of any external power source. It is full of manually operated and the design is very simple. So, if there is any wear occurs during the operation it can be replaced easily. The maintenance and the operating cost for the product is very low. The farmers mainly get benefited by this product rather than taking human beings to work in the farm land. This mint plucker might be the solution to the problems faced by a small-scale farmer regarding the cost and labour implementation. After testing this machine in farm, it is found that the cost of mint plucking using this machine is considerably less as compare to manual harvesting.

Technology development is the foremost seed for our luxurious and ease lifestyle. Every work and process of human beings is handed over in the hands of machines in the name of automation. Agriculture is the known backbone of India and other economies but automation in this field is in infant stage in India. Canal plays vital role in irrigation and water supply, based on which the farmers cultivate. Kaveri delta canals are the oldest and longest one in Tamil Nadu which irrigates about 5.15 lakh hectares of land in Thanjavur and Trichy districts. The major issue is the growth of weed in these canals, so water does not reach to all agricultural fields intended. In agricultural usage small irrigation canals from the river streams plays a vital role in irrigation. But they are not maintained properly until farmers need it which is water management crisis. So, during this period unwanted deposits cover the irrigation canal. At time of water supply, the canals are dug and cleaned manually. The objective of project work is to design and fabricate a product named “irrigation canal renovator” which automate the process of cleaning the canal. A product named irrigation canal renovator is drove manually in the canal. Product consists of main frame in the trapezoidal shape which replicates the shape of canal. Three blades of size 500mm in diameter is placed in lower part of the frame and two blades of same size is placed in the side frames. Blade drive power from motor shaft, which is in turn powered by a battery. Clearance is provided for easy maneuvering of the machine. The blade rotates at speed of 600rpm, which cuts the grass and other plants.

There is increase in size of image acquisition and data storage methods and also there is increase in database of images. Earlier textual description and manual annotation of images were used for retrieval of images that was a time consuming task. The need of the hour is to manage the large collections through efficient systems called content-based image retrieval systems. In this case visual contents of the image like shape, arrangement and color of the objects is present in the images are also considered along with the associated data with the image. As compared to other conventional method of image retrieval these systems are more efficient and fast. In this paper we have proposed a new system in which features are extracted using Gabor filtering which are further optimized using lion optimization. In the end the classification is done using SVM for cuckoo search optimization and decision tree method for lion optimization. The proposed method is tested in terms of various parameters that show improved results are achieved using Lion optimization as compared to cuckoo search optimization

Perceptive verbs, including ‘look’ have important meaning because these verbs are directly related to real experience. Other types of verbs, such as verbs of action-processes or movement verbs appear as a result of the development of perceptive verbs. Perceptive verbs are the most basic verb. Because of the perceptive verb ‘look’ is an important part of the five senses, several concepts that are considered to be categories often use the lexicons in metaphorical expressions. Research conducted on perceptive verbs illustrates how cognition works in language development. The development of the verb look indicates a metaphorical process. Therefore, it is interesting to then analyze how the conceptual metaphor of perceptive verb look is.

The monologal praxis ratio is a procedural action that closes the door of dialogue, so that the truth is presumed as something that is absolutely true from the side of the institution of the Public Prosecutor. The nature of the absoluteness comes up to the public prosecutor's field of uncertainty as a matter of fairness and truth. Alternative indictments are compiled and constructed based on a pattern of reasoning which is called by internal doubt of the Public Prosecutor, both personally and institutionally. Thus, the meaning of the complete case file statement originating from the investigation process becomes meaningless.

We have performed dc magnetization measurements on (Sm1-yNdy)0.52Sr0.48MnO3 (0 ≤ y ≤ 1) single crystals to study the nature of ferromagnetic to paramagnetic phase transition. For y = 0, ferromagnetic transition is first-order along with a discontinuous change in magnetization at TC (110 K) with the presence of thermal hysteresis. With increasing Nd doping (y), TC increases while thermal hysteresis starts to decrease which eventually vanishes at around y = 0.4, suggesting that first-order ferromagnetic transition becomes second-order in nature at that Nd concentration. The variation of TC with y has been explained in terms of the average A-site cation radius and quenched disorder.

Visually impaired people and elders face difficulties in abstaining from obstacles and discerning hazards because of the inadequacy of information for staying out of harm’s way in their everyday routine. They have insufficient knowledge about some of the things like self- velocity, the velocity of moving objects, proximity of living beings, dangerous gases and so on. Therefore, we contemplate developing an electronic system that inherently contains various modules for various functions like obstacle detection module, a fall detection module, navigation module and also Alert system. This design is developed using NI myRIO, which will be mounted on a walking stick that abets the holder to be connected with his/her family. While the obstacle detection module employs a set of ultrasound sensors, PIR sensor, and an alarm system to guide the carrier, the fall detection is primarily achieved by a 3-axis accelerometer which is an inbuilt function in myRIO. The hazard detection module is used to detect the harmful gases and fire in both indoor as well as outdoor environments and alerts the user. The user can intimate to his/her family member in hazard situations using the SOS button. The navigation module can send the GPS location of the carrier which is acquired from this module and send it to a particular mobile number or mail.

Data monitoring is a key process followed by almost all the manufacturing industries. The status of a machine running in an industry can produce an enormous amount of data that could be analyzed well if recorded in a proper manner at regular intervals. In general, a small scale industry has to employ a person to record the machine status data in a notebook, which has to be analyzed and the performance of the machine and the efficiency of the machine will be calculated manually. Since the data are to be recorded at regular intervals it might be a tiring job for the humans to do. That is why industries look forward to automate the collection of data from the devices which led to the success of IoT devices. This article proposes an idea of a device that can collect information from any device controlled by PLC and store it in the cloud using GPRS or Wi-Fi.

The increasing number of deaths related to stroke diseases in Nigeria is growing at an alarming. This can be attributed to poor diagnosis as well as lack of financial power to administer and undergo appropriate test as may be recommended by the physician. Most of the neurologists (experts) lack high-tech tools that are supposed to be assisting them in diagnosing and treatment of stroke diseases. The scarcely available tools such as Computerized Axial Tomography (CAT), Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), and Positron Emission Tomography (PET) are expensive for most of the patients to access. In this research, EEG which should be a more affordable and effective way of diagnosing stroke disease that will help to mitigate the death rate of stroke patients in Nigeria are suggested and advocated for. A survey was carried out to ascertain the possibility of interpreting the result of EEG recordings to the patient or ordinary person. Questionnaire was designed and distributed to scholars in computer science, computer related fields of study and medical sciences. Brain signals were captured using Brain Computer Interface (BCI) machine. The result was then interpreted using Visual Studio 2012. The result suggests need to scale up the awareness on the benefit of EEG with special emphasis on diagnosis and treatment of stroke disease.

The physical properties of rock and fluid tend to affect the velocity of transient pressure propagation and the formation of a radial flow pattern. In this study, the pressure fall-off test data of the X-1 well, which is one of five injection wells located in an oil field in Borneo Island was analyzed using software. Based on the well test result and other available data, a proper pressure fall-off test was designed for the field. Furthermore, sensitivity tests of several parameters, namely compressibility viscosity, permeability, porosity, and shut-in time were conducted, to analyze the effect of rock and fluid properties. The permeability and shut-in time were directly proportional to the radius of investigation, while porosity, compressibility, and viscosity were inversely proportional. A constant value of the correlation of investigation radius obtained from this research was 1491, while the radial flow periods were determined from the pressure derivative curve observed. The effect of porosity on the formation of radial flow regime was ignored, the radial flow regime came earlier due to the increase in compressibility and permeability, while viscosity delayed the start of radial flow regime.

Bensa kaolin deposit is found in Southern nation nationality and people of Ethiopia regional state which is 405km south of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. This study presents new major and trace element chemistry of Bensa kaolin deposit to assess element characteristics during kaolinisation processes and genesis of the kaolin deposit of the area. Bensa kaolin is a result of weathering of rhyolitic ignimbrite and it shows high concentration of SiO2 ranges between 53.6 to 68.8 wt. % and Fe2O3 (4.85-7.74 wt. %) and exhibits very limited CaO (0.27-0.62 wt. %), MgO (0.14-0.31 wt. %), P2O5 (0.1-0.2 wt. %) and MnO (0.12-0.3 wt. %). The highly mobile Large ion lithophile element (LILE) Sr (23.3-60.5ppm), Rb (32.3-88.4ppm), Ba (201-593ppm) and Cs (0.54-1.67ppm) of Bensa kaolin shows depletion pattern on the Chondrite normalized spider plot whereas the immobile High field strength element (HFSE) Zr (1070-1770ppm), Hf (26.8-45.4ppm), Nb (143-30ppm), Ta (9.3-14.8ppm) and REE concentrations of Bensa kaolin samples exhibit enrichment pattern. The major and trace element concentration of Bensa kaolin indicates samples from depth >20m and from the periphery of the deposit are less mature with respect to chemistry and physical property compared with samples from the center of the deposit. The depletion of CaO, MgO, P2O5, MnO and LILE and the enrichment of HFSE of Bensa kaolin indicates the mobile elements have been removed from the system during the kaolinisation processes and it is the characteristics of supergene kaolin origin. Under very high temperature to some extent HFSE Zr can be mobilized and it can be removed from the system but the very high concentration of Zr in Bensa kaolin deposit reflect that the kaolinisation processes may have been undertook at low temperature condition.

Cassava cultivation in Côte d’Ivoire is constrained by cassava mosaic disease (CMD) caused by African cassava mosaic virus (ACMV) and East African cassava mosaic Cameroon virus (EACMV-CM). The disease is transmitted principally through infected cuttings. This study combined thermotherapy and meristem culture to produce virus-free in vitro plantlets. These sanitation techniques were applied to six highly valued cassava varieties. Cuttings taken from plants showing CMD symptoms were grown in greenhouses as mother plants. At 2 weeks old, PCR of these plants showed presence of ACMV and EACMV-CM in single and double infections respectively. Heat treatment was then applied of day/night with 40/36°C and a photoperiod of 16/8 h. Meristem tips were used to produce in vitro plantlets, which were re-checked for viruses using PCR, and virus-free plantlets were multiplied through several sub-cultures. Using 60 isolated meristematic explants, we regenerated 44 in vitro plantlets. We achieved a sanitation success rate of 100 % for four varieties (Agba blé 3, IM89, Koko Soclo 5 and Bayéré), 80 % for Yacé and 62.5 % for Yacé 2. A second indexing of viruses showed that 88.33 % of regenerated in vitro plantlets were free from both ACMV and EACMV-CM. After three consecutive sub-cultures of the virus-free plantlets from all six varieties, we obtained 800 in vitro plantlets. This study showed that the thermotherapy technique combined with meristem culture was effective in eliminating these viruses. The use of virus-free planting material will reduce the impact of CMD and boost cassava production in Côte d’Ivoire.

The cardiac attack disease is increased in a decade of years. Image processing technique plays a vital role in identifying coronary artery diseases. The coronary artery disease reduces the flow of blood to the heart. The techniques used to identify the problem in heart should be fast and accurate. This paper builds up another system for separating coronary centerlines from three dimensional fragmented coronary veins models. In the proposed system we apply the Gradient Vector Flow algorithm for the vessel model of speed image. The centerline in the heart can be extracted by using the wave propagation method. The three dimensional vessel model has been implemented in many coronary vein segment. The coronary centerline extraction in artificial vessel model is adapted with our proposed framework. The distance to extract the coronary centerline is about 0.25mm and the overlap distance is about 96%. The quality of Computed Tomography image is 0.3mm × 0.3mm × 0.4mm. Next the artificial vessel model will goes to further testing process. The CT scan image is valid for both left coronary artery and right coronary artery. The average time to take examine the arteries is about 16 min per case. The Gradient vector flow method and fast marching method may be suitable for all cardiac patients and this technique will be more accurate and processing time is fast.

Remittances are basically used on basic consumption goods, housing, expenditure on education and health care goods and services, capital for small business creation and entrepreneurial activities. The basic question of whether migrants channel these remittances into human and physical investments or merely use such receipts in consumption has a profound impact on the development of a nation. This paper makes an attempt to understand the specific migrant and household characteristics that affect the consumption patterns of the remittances received from the international migrant workers by their respective families in the two villages Berenga and Kanakpur, in Cachar district in Assam

Refusal inheritance is an attitude that is not commonly done, but is the right of heirs. In practice, not all inheritance refusals are carried out according to legal procedures so that they can cause disputes with fellow heirs and with third parties. The purpose of this study examines the validity of the refusal of inheritance so that it is binding on him and other heirs and third parties; and the legal implications of denial of inheritance. The approach method used in this study is an empirical juridical method, namely an approach to the problem by reviewing the regulations as positive law with the implementing regulations including their implementation in the field. The results of the study indicate that the refusal of inheritance by the heir is only valid and binding if it has been carried out in the courtroom of the district where the inheritance is open. In practice, there was a denial of inheritance made by a notary and some were carried out with the latter statement abroad. Of course such refusal is not legal according to the heirs who refuse to remain domiciled as heirs. In addition, the emergence of both civil and criminal disputes related to the denial of inheritance originated from violations of the nemo plus principle.

Company law in Indonesia does not yet regulate individual business entities. The absence of regulation of individual business entities means allowing the existence of such business entities in a state of no legal certainty. Lack of legal certainty on the existence of individual business entities has the potential to harm business actors and the user community. The form of individual business/sole proprietorship is chosen by many business actors in carrying out their business activities, however it is not realized the advantages and disadvantages of choosing the form of individual business.

Internet of Things is one of the most important paradigm in current world which allows connectivity and communication between heterogeneous devices so as to achieve better synchronization and automation with control. These days Internet of Things have gained immense popularity as they function without major requirements of infrastructure and they can function without any central controlling authority. In order to implement communication between devices many sensors are used to collect data, process it, encrypt (e.g. using AES-128, RSA, DSA) and upload it to the cloud. There is huge presence of IoT devices which generates voluminous data called as big data in medical, military, banking and marketing fields but poor security features make it easy for attackers to perform both active attacks and passive attacks. Hence one of the primary objectives is to make this network secure by identifying presence of malicious wormhole which can mitigate in a mobile ad-hoc network. In this proposed paper we will compare various existing wormhole detection techniques in IoT Network and will propose an efficient algorithm which will evaluate the routing tables of nodes connected to IoT Network on the basis of path used, frequency of presence of nodes in table along with threshold value generated by nodes using big data analytics

Malware continues to be a serious threat starting from home users to large enterprises. This makes it a hot research topic. Detection of malware is done using static and dynamic analysis of malware signatures and behavior patterns. These are proven to be ineffective and time consuming while detecting unknown malware. In order to identify the new malware many machine learning algorithms are created. Feature engineering is a key step for building these algorithms. This takes too much time. By using deep learning techniques this step can be completely avoided. Recent research reported that many of them used biased dataset, which is completely ineffective in real-time situations. Hence this drives to create a new algorithm/architecture to detect malware using deep learning. By using specialized Convolutional Neural Networks for capturing patterns in malware sequences using the concept of weight sharing. Also adding this with Recurrent Neural Networks, we could capture recurring patterns in malware.

This paper will discuss about the various opportunities and challenges before the social entrepreneurs in India. Social Entrepreneurship has the direct and primary objective of serving the society along with the earning profits. So, social entrepreneurship is different from the economic entrepreneurship as its basic objective is not to earn profits but for providing innovative solutions to meet the society needs which are not taken care by majority of the entrepreneurs as they are in the business for profit making as a sole objective. So, the Social Entrepreneurs have the huge growth potential particularly in the developing countries like India where we have huge societal disparities in terms of the financial positions of the population. Still 22 percent of the Indian population is below the poverty line and also there is disparity among the rural & urban population in terms of families living under BPL. 25.7 percent of the rural population & 13.7 percent of the urban population is under BPL which clearly shows the disparity of the poor people in the rural and urban areas.

Cloud computing is a kind of area which has opened new doors to everyone.This allows for new types of services where online computing and network resources are available. Anyone who want to use it can pay and use online service. One of cloud computing most popular services is data outsourcing. Both public and private organizations can now outsource their large amounts of data to the cloud for cost and convenience reasons and enjoy the benefits of remote storage and management. At the same time, a major concern is the confidentiality of data stored remotely on untrusted cloud servers. To reduce these concerns about sensitive data such as personal health records, emails, income tax and financial reports, which are usually outsourced using well-known cryptographic techniques in encrypted form. Although encrypted data storage protects remote data from unauthorized access, it obscures some basic but essential data use services such as searching for plaintext keywords. For the encrypted data used by AWS and Google Cloud, a lot of techniques are used. Like Searchable encryption, you can store encrypted documents on a remote, honest but curious server, and query that data on the server itself without having to decrypt documents before searching. Not only does this protect the data from the server's prying eyes, but it can also reduce the overhead communication between the server and the user and the latter's local processing.

Today is the era of online shopping. Most of the people do online shopping for their convenience. It includes both M-Commerce and E-Commerce. Important part of the online shopping are the reviews given by the customer which gives the rating to the product they have purchased. In addition to the product reviews, customer also give reviews about company and post purchase experience. These reviews effects the promotion of the product and also helps others to take wise decisions regarding the purchase of goods. This research is focused on studying the reviews on tourism. In which people gives reviews regarding Hotels, Recreation places etc. They also reviews regarding Food, Room, Room Service, Parking, Pick up facility etc. In this research lexical based approach is used to identify the collective analysis for positive and negative reviews. So that people who are trying to take the services following the reviews can see the collective scenario. Current lexical based approach is better than the previous research which was based on sentiwordnet. In sentiwordnet the marks or grade given to the positive, negative, and neutral word. With the help of lexical approach reviews have been tokenized. Positive, negatives and neutral reviews are compared with established Ontology. This mined information will provide better view regarding the total reviews rather than studying all the individual reviews. Experimental results shows much better performance to have collective analysis by automated tool in terms of accuracy and time taken.

The article reflects the study results of the search for trigger points in the process of trigger modeling for the development of psychological properties that are components of professional development. Based on the theoretical analysis, a model of the three-component psychological structure of professional reflection of preschool education specialists has been identified: cognitive-operational, motivational-emotional and behavioral-evaluative. Reflection is considered as a human ability to arbitrarily manipulate images in the internal plane and direct a beam of awareness to those objects and mechanisms that, as a rule, remain unconscious. Professional reflection (that is, the focus of consciousness on oneself as a specialist, on the content of one's professional actions, in the performance of professional tasks) is an important factor in professionalism, competence, professional maturity, as it increases the efficiency of solving a wide range of everyday pedagogical tasks. Professional reflection is an important mechanism of the process of self-regulation both at the operational-technical and motivational levels, since it allows a person to take an external position in relation to himself/herself and his/her actions, which makes their conscious regulation possible. In order to confirm the professional reflection structural model of specialists of preschool education institutions, a factor analysis has been carried out. Based on the results of this analysis, 4 factors have been identified that take into account the structural units of the three-component model. To search for sensitive triggers for the development of reflection in the context of the proposed three-component model, a correlation analysis has been carried out using the r-Pearson correlation criterion. Based on the results of correlation analysis, it is possible to design the development of the reflectivity of future kindergarten teachers by developing the qualities-triggers. A program of integrative training of professional reflection has been developed, that is aimed at the implementation of psychological conditions and the development of professional reflection in three vectors: cognitive-operational, motivational-emotional and behavioral-evaluative, which involves the development of certain reflective skills in the field of professional activity of future kindergarten teachers of preschool educational institutions

Based upon the above view, there is a need of sustainable material at the same time biodegradable. Such kind of materials are called “Bio plastics”. Hence an investigation has been carried out to synthesize bioplastic using banana peels and potato starch and also to study its characterization using FTIR (Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy) analysis, Solubility and Swelling tests. The result of synthesis of bioplastic film from banana peel showed that it was brown and that of potato starch was white in colour. Characterization was carried out by FTIR analysis, The FTIR spectrum was obtained at the wavelength in the range of 400-4000cm-1. The results of Solubility test of synthesized bioplastic from banana peel and potato starch revealed that it was completely soluble in sulphuric acid, acetone, ethyl alcohol, acetic acid, partially soluble in ammonia and insoluble in water. The results of swelling test for both bioplastics synthesized showed that there was not much change when soaked in chloroform and methanol. Slight increase in weight was observed when treated with water medium. Hence the synthesized bioplastic material has the substantial properties like little or zero engorgement and insolubility in water makes it worth for commercial viability and use of renewable resource (banana and potato) will be the best raw material for bioplastics synthesis.

Road safety assessment is crucial to reducing accidents because any preventive measure is only relevant and thus effective when there is understanding on the nature of accidents and the associated safety risks. Conventional safety assessment on roads is based on post-accident approach, for which the nature of accidents and safety risks are suggested from accident data. Such approach is obviously reactive rather than proactive, since this means accidents have already taken place when safety risk analysis is performed. This study proposes using vehicle dynamic simulation as the alternative, pre-accident method to assess safety, targeting at expressways. To verify the effectiveness of this proposal, the method was tested on three sections of a local major interstate expressway, known to be accident-prone, using road profiles generated virtually. Several simulation parameters were varied to emulate various combinations of vehicle, road and driver elements in the driving events. From simulation outcomes, it was determined that vehicle loss of control, which leads to road accidents, can be predicted by erratic response in certain vehicle dynamic response parameters, namely roll and lateral acceleration, together with inspection of lane departure from simulation visuals. The method was successful in replicating actual accidents at those known accident hotspots, in which the nature is related to lateral and longitudinal dynamics of vehicles that are normally encountered in free-flow traffic of expressways. This shows that vehicle dynamic simulation is an effective pre-accident method of assessing safety of an expressway. With this in mind, it is thus expected to be applicable to the pre-evaluation of safety of many newly-constructed expressways.

Hand gesture recognition is the method by which an individual involving only hands understands specific forms of shape and movement. There are many applications where it is possible to apply hand gesture recognition to enhance control, usability, interaction and training. Communication through hand gesture has been shown successful results for humans and active research continues to replicate the same performance in computer vision systems. Interaction between humans and computers can be significantly enhanced by developments in systems capable of recognizing different hand movements. In this paper we have considered leapGestRecog data set which consists of 1000 images of 10 different members and each of them constituting 9 different labels of hand i.e palm, fist, thumb, index, ok, c, down, palm moved, fist moved. We are using convolutional neural networks which provide a very good result when dealing with images. This hand gesture recognition can be widely in case of physically impaired people and video games which involve gestures to move or play. Now-a- days by showing some gestures we can open some applications in mobile phone. The main goal of hand poses detection is to detect the gesture and able to control it.

Wireless Sensor Network plays a vital role for data gathering and monitoring purposes. It consists of several sensor nodes which are randomly deployed in the network. Data gathering is a major concern where as to enhance the network lifetime. In the proposed research work, Energy Efficient Data Gathering Scheme (EEDGS) is introduced to provide balance between data collection and energy management among sensor nodes. Initially the sensor nodes are divided into two categories i.e. vital and non vital nodes. It is based on the estimation data creation speed and remaining energy of individual sensor nodes. Relay nodes are located near the anchor node to collect the data effectively. Data gathering algorithm provides the procedure to attain more data collection rate by adopting non vital node in the cluster region. From the energy model, the consumption of energy at transmitter and receiver is estimated to manage power among sensor nodes during dynamic scenario. Simulation results are performed in terms of packet delivery ratio, end to end delay, data collection rate, energy efficiency and network reliability using network simulator tool.

Text mining is one of the efficient techniques of data mining to discover and extract valuable information from textual data. The role of text pattern mining in large datasets is an interesting area of research in knowledge discovery. There are so many techniques like predictive analytics, prescriptive analytics, decision making problems that rely solely on patterns to achieve their respective goals. Extracting interesting patterns especially from documents and other unstructured data is a boon considering the data explosion due to social media. Patterns depict the inherent knowledge and other trends such as, frequent item sets, closed frequent item sets and co-occurring terms. The usage and improving the semantic value of patterns that almost matches the real world scenario is still a research gap in this field. If the patterns are long its high specificity leads to low-frequency and misinterpretation problems. Patterns are depended on individual terms which further suffer from dimensionality issues such as polysemy and synonymy. This paper aims to find out the effective algorithms for discovering customized patterns from large documents and also provides solutions to the problems mentioned above. It further compares strengths, and limitations of various algorithms using review of literature and recommend most suitable methods. The knowledge about various pattern mining techniques will be useful when implementing data models such as frequent item sets, closed sequential pattern, pattern taxonomy model and pattern deploying model.

The nodes in MANET continuously moves in a limited area with random mobility speed. MANET forming dynamic topology and nodes are only aware of the nearby nodes if they are in radio range. If the node/s is out of range then it is not possible to communicate with that node in the network. The dynamic topology formation is also possible in decentralized MANET. The routing protocols of MANET are not same as traditional wireless routing protocols. One major issue on this network is security. The routing protocols are sending information to destination from particular source and the routing strategy is provides the better way of delivery in the network. The DREAM protocol is improving the performance of multipath routing by sustaining the location information of mobile nodes. The DREAM protocol reduces the overhead of routing packets flooding in MANET by that reduces the delay in the network also the performance is better than the existing AODV-Line, AODV-Selfwd, DYMO-Line, DYMO-Selfwd. The proposed Reliable DREAM performance is better than normal AODV routing. The DREAM is to sustain the location information with the mobility speed of nodes. The expected possibility of node movement is calculated and also the flooding of routing packets is minimized. The flooding of packets is towards at expected location of the destination. The number of nodes position continuously changes and the DREAM is work on each and every node. Every node is preserving the location information of all nearby nodes in the network. The proposed Reliable DREAM protocol is improves routing performance and provides better data delivery in a dynamic network.

The paper aims to clarify the relationship between an inflation rate and R&D investment flow. The state can influence investment activity with the help of various levers: industrial, credit and financial and tax policies; provision of tax benefits to enterprises making capital investments; depreciation policy; creating favorable conditions for attracting foreign investment, etc. To test our hypothesis in this paper, panel data estimates were conducted on R&D investment and inflation rate. Data obtained from a webpage of the OECD database for the period 1991-2018. Furthermore, the inflation influence on the flow of R&D investment was analyzed by using the gross domestic expenditure on R&D (GERD) and inflation rate database. Inflation most significantly affects the investment activity in the country. It should be borne in mind that the level and dynamics of the refinancing rate of commercial banks by the Central Bank are closely related to the level and dynamics of inflation. More exactly, empirical arguments provided that high inflation rates cause decreasing investment flow in R&D activities. This paper fulfills an identified need to pursue a strict monetary and investment policy. This work consists from the literature review that has explored different aspects of the relationship between inflation rate and R&D investments; data and analysis. Finally, conclusions and their implications.

The physical processes that occur during metal cutting are very complex. Plastic strain and deletion of the processed material is accompanied by a significant increase in temperature and vibration, which makes it difficult to study the cutting process. This article gives and describes the ratios that underlie finite element modeling of metal cutting. It considers the case of rectangular orthographic cutting with the formation of flow chips, as the most generic type of processing. The obtained ratios can be applied to simulate most types of metalworking (turning, milling, drilling, etc.) in order to study the process of plastic strain of the metal, study the dynamics of the cutting process, evaluate stresses in the cutting tool and the workpiece, and forecast residual potentials in the processed surface, cutting tool design, etc. Formulas that describe the main processes occurring when cutting metals have been derived: plastic strain of the material, fracture, thermal processes and friction between the chips, tool and workpiece. The formulas are obtained on the basis of fundamental relations: mass conservation, energy conservation, impulse law, balance equations, thermal conductivity; equations relating stresses and strains of the body. Great attention has been givento the model of the processed material. The behavior of a viscous elastoplastic material is considered. The correctness of the obtained ratios is confirmed by comparison with the results of field experiments conducted by other authors. The analysis of the existing methods of finite element cutting modeling is carried out: the Lagrangian formulation, Euler formulation and the Arbitrary Lagrangian-Eulerian (ALE) formulation. Criteria for the selection of methods are given depending on the current problem.

Quality frameworks of the top administration duty and its dynamic contribution are very essential to guarantee consistent sufficiency, appropriateness, adequacy and effectiveness. This paper tries to study on the improvement of Quality assurance norms alongside operating procedures with various hierarchical plans of action. This paper tries to understand the manufacturing process and its influence on products quality. Inventory decision should be based on cost factor. Inventory cost incorporates conveying cost, ordering cost, out of stock or lack cost, and limit cost. Every organization contains a few components. A portion of the parts of inventory costs are clashing, requesting costs and conveying costs. For instance, if requesting costs are all the more conveying expenses are less and the other way around. Stock the board includes the advancement and organization of arrangements, frameworks and techniques which will limit all out costs comparative with inventory choices and related capacities, for example, client care prerequisites, creation planning, buying and traffic. Inventory control, on other hand, is characterized in a limited sense than stock the board and relates essentially to the organization of built up policies, systems and methodology. Stock control guarantees a sufficient stockpile of materials, stores. It limits stock outs and deficiencies, keeps away from exorbitant interruptions in activities. It holds down interest in inventories, inventory conveying expenses and out of date quality loses to the base. It encourages buying economies through the estimation of necessities based on recorded understanding. It kills duplication in requesting or in renewing stocks by concentrating the source from which buy demands radiate. Ita allows the better utilisation of accessible stocks by encouraging between office moves inside an organization. It gives a thorough check against the material loss through lack of regard or pilferage. The study incorporates different writing audits and evaluation to choose the correct segments to improve the standard of the items that are delivered with explicit complement on Frayos Food Products Private Limited Company, Mysuru.

The studies open up an innovative approach and investigate porous, efficient raw carbon from the Zephyranthes citrina (ZC) bulb, which was used as an adsorbent. The well-dried and finely powdered ZC bulb was carbonized at a temperature of 900 ° C. The carbonized crude ZC sample was characterized by FT-IR, UV-visible, Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), BET and X-ray diffraction techniques, and their adsorption potential to remove the basic methylene blue (MB) dye from an aqueous sample. Adsorption studies comprise both adsorption isotherm and kinetic methods. The processes were carried out with diverse adsorbate concentrations and adsorbent quantities at various time intervals in the batch process. The BET isotherm model has also been used as an adsorption mechanism, which explores the finest adsorption capacity of the synthesized carbon material. Kinetic models of Lagergren first order, pseudo second order and intra particle diffusion were used to assess the kinetics and adsorption mechanism. The results revealed that the adsorption process follows the first order kinetic model of Lagergren. The BET isotherm model confirmed that it has an excellent adsorption capacity in an adsorption process. Based on the results obtained, the maximum removal (81%) of the dye was achieved as a solution containing 50 mg of the 50 ml dye at 3 hours for methylene blue. The results indicated that the bulb of Zephyranthes citrina carbon is a proficient adsorption material and is also used as a cost effective alternative that can absorb dye from an aqueous solution without activation treatment.

Organizations concur that to succeed in an ever-changing dynamic global economy, they must attract and retain the best talent. They strive to hire and retain talent as a crucial resource for best possible outcomes. Talent being an extremely scarce resource, gaps exists between the various levels in the organization and more predominantly at the higher levels. Even though the economic downturn created a truce between the organizations for talent, new stress is leveraged to hunt talented employees for organizations. The A-list players can work more even for less and special prerogative can be given to hire or retain the best talents who can further mentor their successors. Due to slowdown in the economies, many organizations are off loading their workforce but the layoffs should not be so deep so as to lose the talent just when economy recovers.

Counterfeiting is one of the biggest challenges to the authenticity of the original product. Counterfeit goods generate 15-20% revenue loss on average businesses. To combat this situation, product manufacturers use holograms and barcodes. Therefore, customers cannot guarantee the reliability of a product. Therefore, with the growing trends in mobile and wireless technology; rapid response (QR) codes provide a robust mechanism for counterfeit products. QR codes and color QR codes are primarily used in security and proprietary applications. Many mobile applications use QR codes for secure login and receive product information. Our proposed approach uses QR codes based on 2 Dimensional color QR codes to recognize the originality and reliability of a product.

The present study reveals that the generalized Rydberg equation of state (EOS) with K_∞^'=5/3, (i.e. the Holzapfel HO2-EOS) here K_∞^' be the infinite pressure value of first pressure derivative of bulk modulus, yields a remarkably good agreement with the Stacey reciprocal K^'-EOS of the lower mantle and the outer core of the earth upto a pressure of nearly 330 GPa. Values of K_0 and K^', the bulk modulus and its first order pressure derivative both at zero pressure, for the generalized Rydberg EOS with a fixed value of K_∞^'=5/3 are found to be very close to the corresponding values for the Stacey EOS with K_∞^'= 2.4 and 3.0 respectively in case of the lower mantle and the outer core. The seismological data on P-K-ρ and K' are reproduced almost identically with the help of both the equation of state. It is emphasized that K_∞^'=5/3 is not only a valid theoretical result obtained from the Thomas-Fermi model but also a thermodynamic requirement as found by Shanker et al. [Physics B (2006)]. We have also presented a comparison of the results for iron at 300K, and found that the HO2 EOS is compatible with the Stacey reciprocal K^'-EOS

Nowadays finding a path comes in handy using navigation software like maps through GPS devices. In this setup, the visualization of route in the maps requires path information from Google server for path and GPS position from GPS system (in-built) for locations. Hence there is a need of path information for visualization which is to be fetched from the internet. However the facility of fetching path information through internet is not available in every region, especially at remote forest. In such cases, offline based navigation systems will be very helpful. Offline navigation system is designed by machine learning technique. Since it is very useful in predicting appropriate path in a deterministic manner without being explicitly programmed and also there is no need of path information to compute. Support Vector Machine (SVM) algorithm is implemented as a machine learning technique. A major classification and regression technique in Machine Learning is SVM. As the data sets of path information which is given as a training data sets are not linearly distributed, Radial Basis Function(RBF) is used as a kernel function of SVM algorithm. After trained by SVM algorithm, it produces the hyper plane with enough margin to distinguish between the two datasets of human habitation path and the forest region. K mean clustering is used to find the centroid of human habitation path from the given datasets. The results of cluster datasets and model are saved for testing purpose. The trained SVM model is to be loaded to predict appropriate path with the input of current GPS position. The result of SVM output classifies whether the current GPS position is human habitation path or the forest region. The trained cluster of dataset is to be loaded which is used as for finding direction. The shortest distance can be determined using cosine distance between the current GPS position and clusters of centroid datasets. The minimum value is considered as the shortest distance and the direction is calculated between current GPS position and minimum valued cluster point.

A computer network is a collection of computers and network devices grouped together which allows or transfer their data with one another. A wireless network is a computer network of any type that uses wireless signals to connect the nodes in the network to transfer/share the data for its applications. A wireless sensor network is a network having autonomous sensors distributed evenly to monitor and send the data of the physical, environmental and real time conditions periodically. The mobile node rotation model is exploited using Adaptive Energy Threshold Algorithm and Distributed Swap Level Algorithm. It mainly focus on rearranging the sensors to appropriate place without changing the network topology. The Adaptive Energy Threshold Algorithm is used to find out the energy level threshold value of each node in the network. The Distributed Swap Level Algorithm exchanges the node according to their energy level and location by taking the node energy level value below the threshold energy level value. The periodical node rotation or swapping lead to rotation overhead and the layer based topology organize the nodes in layers according to value of their energy levels. The rotation is carried out between and within the layers that decreases energy consumption level and improves the lifetime of the network. The node rotation is implemented by using OMNeT++ software and the simulation is written in C++ to compute and evaluate the performance

Usable electrical energy harvesting from mechanical vibration is novel for operating low-power remote devices. Two different mass loaded cantilever type piezofilms (commonly used as piezo sensor) are considered in this investigation to convert mechanical vibration into electrical energy. An artificial vibrator is fabricated to simulate the ambient vibration. The ac power generated by the piezofilms is converted by a commercial passive converter to obtain usable dc power. A total of eight experiments are conducted and we found that in the regime of ambient vibration (<100 Hz), the piezofilms of lower area with lower resonant frequency can provide higher power. Further, when energy harvester contains multiple piezofilms, better performance is obtained for homogeneous films in contrast to the heterogeneous films. Study on load characteristics reveals that parallel combination of films generates highest power, signifying that a vibrating piezofilm acts as a current source. In our study, peak power is obtained for a load resistance of 480 kΩ, signifying a better current driving capability of the harvester. The peak power is found to be highly nonlinear with the vibrating frequency and is found to be maximum around the vibrating frequency of 59 Hz. In addition, electrical power delivered to the resistive load per unit area of the film is found to be as high as 1.43 µW/cm2 and it is much higher than the similar reported harvesters.

The bamboo activated carbon was prepared and activated by using H3PO4 was studied and the results indicates that 62.45 % fixed carbon, 0.65 g/cm3 bulk density, 7.6 % moisture content, 5.55 % ash content. The process parameters for the removal of iron which include initial pH, contact time, initial metal ion concentration, adsorbent dosage, particle size and temperature of solution was varied in order to evaluate their influence on the adsorption process. The results were obtained reveals that the maximum sorption for metal was found to be at pH 5. The adsorption of Fe3+ was achieved and exist equilibrium at 60 minutes of agitation. The BAC dosage reveals better results at lower metal ion concentrations and higher adsorbent dosages. The adsorption process was also evaluated under different isotherms; a better sorption fit found for Fe3+ is Freundlich isotherm model with correlation coefficient (R2) values of 0.9620. The kinetic models were studied upon adsorption kinetics and this study showed a good correlation coefficient for a pseudo-second order kinetic model. Thermodynamic parameters such were also been evaluated and indicate the spontaneous nature of the adsorption process. The positive value of change in enthalpy (ΔH) and negative Gibbs free energy change (ΔG) suggests and confirmed that the adsorption process was established as endothermic and spontaneous nature respectively.

Toni Morrison, the famous Nobel Laureate for literature in 1993, usually unveils the tragic past of the Negro slaves in most of her works. The novel Beloved is a vivid document of the darkest chapter in the history of the New World dealing with those white, civilized but uncultured slave-owners. All the slaves are brutally stripped away from their voices, language and narrative in a way that their sense of self almost diminished. They try to repress their bad memories and in the process lose their true identity. Throughout the novel, the horrors of slavery hang over the characters and one can easily notice from their interactions and recollections of all their past struggles. The victims in the novel represent horrors that have gone unmentioned in American history.

the future Industrial Internet of Things (IIOT’s) application is composed of wearable sensor for real-time monitoring human activity. These wearable sensor generate continuous stream of data at much high data rate and are powered by battery. Thus, they are limited to use wireless protocol such as Bluetooth Low Energy and IEEE 802.15.4. Time-Slotted Channel Hopping (TSCH) Medium Access Control (MAC) is a promising technology for provisioning IIOT’s application that are deployed in environment condition that are prone to interference. This work aims to overcome the issues and challenges in building Reliable and Energy Efficient Scheduling (REES) model for TSCH mobile adhoc network (MANET). The unpredictable nature of wireless link and data source locations makes scheduling challenging. Further, it waste to reserve resources for the worst-case scenario (i.e., high expected data rate). The REES model allows both dedicated slots and shared slots. Along with, allow each communicating device pair to adaptively activate their assigned slots. Thus, aid in increasing overall access fairness, packet delivery rate and reducing the idle listening overhead of unutilized slots. Further, for catering high traffic load a MANET device can dynamically activate additional slots, without the requirement of reorganizing new schedule. Experiment outcome shows REES model minimize energy consumption and maximize data transmission performance.

Image enhancement is the process of sharpening image feature so that it is more suitable for some specific applications where the quality of the image is important for human perception. Here a multi-image enhancement technique which is based on wavelet packet transform is presented for the images distorted by atmospheric turbulence, where multiple low resolution images are processed to form a single high quality enhanced image. In wavelet packet transform both the approximation coefficients, which is the low frequency portion, and detailed coefficients, which is the high frequency portion of the previous levels, are used for processing in the next level. So without losing any part, the image can be represented with time-frequency information. This finds application in feature extraction and object recognition. Here first step is aligning the Region of Interest (ROI) from all input images using phase correlation method. Then it is combined in transform domain with the help of wavelet packet transform. Performance comparison parameters are calculated for the output image and it is compared with the parameters obtained from other techniques.

In Morocco, agriculture is the main source of life for most people. Such as, to irrigate agriculture, they use engines that consume fossil energy to pump well water [1]. While, this means of irrigation is not profitable because of the high cost of the fuels used [2]. More, it has serious consequences on our environment. For this reason, we thought about applying alternative energy, which responds well to the problems mentioned. This is photovoltaic energy (PV) through the installation of PV pumping stations for agricultural irrigation and domestic use [3-4]. The choice of this type of energy was based on several factors: Sunny region, moderate temperature, this energy is profitable. Our contribution will be at the level of scientific research through the study of the operation of PV installations (efficiency, loss of power ...) and the application of prototypes made in the laboratory to optimize the operation of these PV installations.

The property management profession in Malaysia is registered under the Akta Penilai, Pentaksir, Ejen Harta Tanah dan Pengurus Harta 1981 (Akta 242)/ Valuers, Appraisers, Real Estate Agents and Property Managers Act 1981 (Act 242). A property manager is required to carry out management and control of any land, building and any interest in the land or building, excluding business management based on the property on behalf of the owner for a fee. In Malaysia, property managers have previously been free to manage their property under their custody, most of whom manage the assets on the basis of their own guidelines and standards. Therefore, in order to address these issues, this study was conducted in order to develop a competencies framework for property managers in the shopping mall. Proposed framework that based on knowledge, skills, abilities and other characteristics (KSAOs), could assist the organization in determining the competencies of property managers in their shopping centers for day-to-day tasks as well as for the purpose of hiring. Future research on the relationship between knowledge, skills, abilities and other characteristics of job performance is recommended.

A total number of 253 mushroom samples were collected from Kangra, Solan and Shimla district of H.P in 2014 during the rainy season. 61 different healthy and insect free fruiting bodies of white rot fungi (WRF) were selected for isolation and 20 pure cultures were obtained. All 20 cultures were grown with 0.5mM concentration of both dyes in Malt extract agar (2% MEA) and only 6 cultures had shown growth with both dyes Sunset yellow-FCF and Acid Orange-7. These cultures were further grown with different concentration of dyes (0.25, 0.50, 0.75 and 1 mM) in 2% MEA. Out of 6 cultures only Trametes spp. (6/14, 144/14) showed good mycelial growth and decolourization with all concentrations of dyes. These Trametes spp. were identified as Trametes elegans and Trametes versicolor after molecular taxonomy and chosen for liquid culture studies for the degradation of dyes and ligninolytic enzyme study. Both Trametes spp. were grown in Nutrient Rich (NRM) and Nutrient Poor medium (NPM) under static and shaking conditions at 25±1°C up to 20 days. HPLC analysis also had clearly demonstrated that Sunset yellow-FCF and Acid orange-7 are very efficiently degraded by both Trametes spp. The enzymes namely Laccase, Aryl alcohol oxidase (AAO), Manganese Peroxidase (MnP) and Lignin Peroxidase (LiP) were observed in both species and play a significant role in the degradation of both synthetic dyes. Trametes elegans and Trametes versicolor were showed significant potential for the degradation of Sunset yellow-FCF and Acid Orange-7 dye in NPM under shaking conditions. Both white-rot fungi can be used in the biodegradation of synthetic dyes as well as other xenobiotic compounds.

The South Caucasus region is quite diverse in its cultural, ethnic, civilization, religious and social structure. At the same time after the collapse of the Soviet Union, emerged numerous internal conflicts significantly hindered the democratization process in the region. The quarter-century post-Soviet experience shows that with some differences mainly pseudo-democratic or even autocratic regimes are established in South Caucasus countries. Many researches affirm that in plural societies of Azerbaijan and Georgia ethnocratic elements are also observed. In these countries the influence of dominant ethnic groups over other ethnicities not explicitly are encouraged by authorities. Local researchers often explain this situation by the transitional period. However, other numerous studies show that in these countries ethnic-based governments aspire to be strengthened. Therefore, these countries could not lead to a fully democratic transition, and in result, they will be able to build ethnic democracies or authoritarian regimes. In this case, the cultural, religious and linguistic identity of subordinate ethnicities will be in danger. To prevent such possible developments, the article explores the idea of cultural relativism as opposition to the ethnocentrism. The cultural relativism treats all ethnic segments of the same plural society as equal. And in this case, the most relevant model of democracy can be the consociational model which continues to be successfully used for decades in many plural European states such as Netherlands, Belgium, etc. The article argues that in South Caucasus plural states the consociational discourse can be a real tool to build a democratic political culture. Based on the universal objectives and common interests, the consociational discourse tends to create guarantees of equality and security for all segments in South Caucasus plural states. Only on the base of civic culture development, the consociational democracy model implementation can be efficient.

Sorafenib is an anticancer drug for the treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma. The present work involves the formulation development and characterization of sorafenib loaded liposomes. Sorafenib loaded liposomes were prepared by the thin-film hydration method. Morphology was examined by scanning electron microscopy. Particle size and zeta potential were determined by laser- scattering method. Drug and excipients compatibility study was performed by ATR-FTIR, and the study revealed that there was no interaction between drug and excipients. The encapsulation efficiency (EE) of sorafenib liposomes was determined using the HPLC method. The in vitro release profile of sorafenib loaded liposomes was determined using a dialysis method. The sorafenib liposomes expected a spherical shape with a uniform particle size (97 nm), negative zeta potential (-18.3 mV), and polydispersity index (0.474). % EE was found to be 97 %. A slow and sustained drug release was observed in vitro. This result suggests that sorafenib loaded liposomes can be considered a novel chemotherapeutic approach for treating liver cancer.

Agriculture is the science and art of cultivating plants and crops which is the key development for the human civilization. Statistics says that population of farmers in India was about 55% in 2006 and it has been steadily decreased to 43% in the year 2018. Government provides different agricultural fund schemes for raising the standard of agriculture. Young farmers failed to achieve success in this field because of the lack of knowledge. In order to provide them sufficient information, we put forward the device ‘Smart-bot’. In our project, we intend to create two devices, one at the farmyard (Smart-sense) and other in the farmers hand called smart-bot. Smart-sense is easy to use which can be placed on the farm field to sense the atmospheric data, soil parameters, light values. This device sends the data retrieved to the cloud platform. The handy Smart-bot fetches these sensed data from the cloud and give the voiced output to the young farmers who are new to the agricultural occupation. The handy smart-bot is designed to support Artificial Intelligence. It is programmed in such a way that it can listen and answer the questions asked by the farmers in their language.

Bipolar Disorder (BD) is one of kinds of mental disease that is quite common found in Indonesia. Those suffering from this disease will drastically experience a shift in mood in a certain period of time. This shift in mood, in turn, can cause many undesired things. The detection of Bipolar Disorder can be done through various diagnosing methods, one of which is by using EEG (Electroencephalogram) signal or ECG (electrocardiogram). One of the methods to detect BD using the ECG signal is by assessing the heart-rate variability (HRV) in which HRV in the patients of Bipolar Disorder tends to be lower than that of normal persons. In this research, an analysis method of HRV was developed to detect Bipolar Disorder using the ECG signal. The method proposed consisted of notch filter, wavelet decomposition, R-R detection, and HRV analysis using Mean Heart Rate (MHR), Standard Deviation of Normal to Normal (SDNN) and Root Mean Square of successive RR interval differences (RMSSD), and SVM for classification. From the experiment, it was found the highest accuracy of 93.8% using three features and quadratic SVM. This showed that the ability of method designed to differentiate HRV with the high accuracy. Here, the verification using the larger dataset was required to test the consistency of the proposed method.

Life Insurance Industry predominates to be the most happening industry in terms of direct and indirect employment. We have over 2.5 lakh employees and ~20 lakh financial advisors relying on this industry for their sustenance. While we have manifold distribution channels, carriers rely predominantly on their proprietary channels and the most noticeable one being the agency. Agency channel has diversed layers of hierarchy however the common denominator remains to be the agent who sources policies from prospects. At the moment the crux of the problem for industry is agent attrition and dwindling productivity. Agent attrition in the industry is inexplicably high thus effecting the topline as well as bottomline of carriers. For FY 2018-19 industry recruited 6.4 lakh agents and terminated 5.3 lakh agent as the net count on 31st March’19 remains at 21.94 lakh agents. In terms of volume of business for FY 2017-17, agency channel underwrote 65.93% of individual new business which is close to 1.28 lakh crore. Since 65% of the total business is contributed by ageny channel and the channel is grappling with higher levels of attrition it has become imperative to analyze the factors which influence agency retention, productivity and ways to develop the same. However we have not had enough research and study on agent retention and enhancing their productivity. This article presents insight into the factors concerning agent productivity and retention. We will also have a comprehensive discussion on suggestive measures to all the stakeholders in augmenting the productivity and retention of an agent.

The problem of Dimensioning in networks is one of the most consistent problems that prevails in our world. In spite of sophisticated networks coming into the market like 4G and 5G networks still it is a long standing problem of our concern .In this paper we highlight the problems that arise in the physical link of a network and also discuss about the various methods by which we can solve this problem. The problem is divided into two sub problems. The first sub problem deals with the design of the topological structure and the second sub problem is to find the network physical links optimizing the revenue given the end to end traffic and Grade of Service constraints of each service class. It also throws some light on how to dimension with respect to the relative Grade of Service constraints. An attempt is made to calculate the dimensioning of the physical link capacities after acquiring the smooth blocking functions. The problem is reduced by knowing the optimal physical link capacities of the network. A performance model is specified to assess the accuracy of the analytical model with respect to simulation results. Two categories of calls are concerned, a narrow-band call and a wide-band call. A narrow-band call may be a voice application and a wide-band call may be a video application. The system operates in a loss mode meaning if the incoming call finds the network resources like capacity busy, it is lost. Performance measures of the network’s overall blocking probability and the blocking probabilities of the narrow-band and wide-band call categories are determined. The results from the measurements and the exact model are compared. The gradients of the objective function and the blocking function with respect to capacities are determined and the optimal physical link capacities are determined. Queue length distribution is also studied .

Rigid pavements are mostly constructed with cement concrete which possesses high flexural strength, durability properties and also provide long-term serviceability for the given climatic and loading conditions. In general, cement is used as binding material in concrete. Cement production is leading to emission of 7 % of global CO2. With increasing industrialization, the industrial by products (wastes) are being accumulated to a large extent, leading to environmental and economic concerns related to their disposal (land filling). In the present investigation, an attempt has been made with the addition of supplementary cementations material to conventional concrete. In the present study, three types of wastes are being considered as a replacement to cement. Jute ash, Wood ash and tyre ash were used as substitutes for cement. Five mixes have been prepared for the present investigation. First, mix with 100 % of cement. Second, mix with 5% jute ash, 5% wood ash and 5% with tyre ash as a replacement to cement. Similarly, for 6%, 7% and 8% trial mixes were being prepared for finding optimum content. For the aforesaid percentages of replacement cubes of size 150 X 150 X 150 mm have been cast and tested for 7 and 28 days, compressive strength, prisms of size 500 X 100 X 100mm for flexural strength and cylinders of size 300 X 150mm for tensile strength respectively. It has been observed from the results that mix with 18% replacement i.e. 6% of each of three materials has shown higher compressive, flexural and tensile strength values when compared with other mixes.

This paper used the packaged software of ANSYS V.15 to make a numerical analysis of reinforced concrete continuous deep beams with openings strengthening using CFRP sheets. Five two-span deep beams with total length of 2200 mm, depth of 500 mm, and thickness of 150 mm were developed. The specimens were divided into two groups; first group contains two beams as controls, one solid and the other with four openings ( two openings in each span); the second group contains three specimens with four openings( two openings in each span) strengthening using CFRP sheets. All openings had the same dimensions of 150*150 mm and located at the critical path of loading which considers critical path that transfer load from loading plates to supporting plates. To study behavior of strengthening continuous deep beams with openings, three specimens of the five ones were adopted to strengthen with three different configurations systems of CFRP sheets to find out the optimum system of strengthening. Solid 65, Solid 185, Link 180 and Shell 41 were used to represent concrete, loading and supporting plates, steel bars and CFRP sheets respectively.

This paper reports the results to assess the rate of corrosion of reinforcement in concrete by varying the levels of Nano silica using impressed current technique. The concrete is the most common used material for construction and their design consumes almost the total cement production in the world. The use of large quantities of cement produces increasing CO2 emissions, and as a consequence the greenhouse effect. A method to reduce the cement content in concrete mixes is the use of Nano silica. The properties of concrete are improved by the use of Nano powders, since Nano particles fill the voids between cement grains and also consume a part of calcium hydroxide which results in additional formation of calcium silicate hydrate (C-S-H.) and more improvement of interface structure. Nano silica addition results in significance of high in compressive strength after 28-days of concrete up to one year and the optimum amount of nano silica is 0.5% by weight of cementitious material. Corrosion of steel in concrete is a slow process. It is difficult to achieve a significance degree of reinforcement corrosion in a limited duration. For this reason, various techniques for inducing accelerated corrosion of steel in concrete are used by this project. From these results and analysis, we conclude that addition of nano material to concrete will ensure the considerable increase in resistance against the corrosion of reinforcement than the one without nano material and also by comparing the Actual Mass Loss Vs Corrosion Rate and Current Rate Vs Duration.

The analysis of an existing process or model in order to discover the weakness and then developing an improved version of that same process or model has become one of the best practices of software engineering in recent times. The (Markov Decision Process) MDP is an effective mathematical modeling tool used for Sequential Decision Making (SDM) under uncertainty and has been used in many other fields such as manufacturing, industrial, medicine and so on but has been underutilized in the Decision Making Process (DMP) of the educational sector. Therefore, this research paper provides a comparative study on the application of the existing (standard) MDP and the improved MDP models in modeling the student’s comprehension in a multimedia learning environment under uncertainty. The improved Markov decision processes integrate the decision making process in the model to ensure that multiple decisions are made in a shorter time. Hence, the significant advantages over the standard MDP. This paper compares the improved MDPs model to the standard MDP models by solving the problem of modeling students in a multimedia modeling system in order to assign the optimal learning style to the learning student using both models. Both models result, when compared to each other, is the same in providing the optimal policy for obtaining and assigning the optimal learning style to the learning students but different in the time of arriving at a decision. The result obtained from the experiment performed shows that the computation time for solving the improved MDP model is significantly smaller than that of solving with the standard MDP model.

Ambulu Village is located in Sumberasih Regency, Kab. Probolinggo. The majority of the population works as farmers and ranchers. Ambulu Village has several problems, namely: Lack of jobs, low level of education, not optimal entrepreneurship development. In the village of ambulu there are some people who cultivate catfish organically. Some of these communities created a company called Lele Pantura. Catfish Pantura consists of 10 families who cultivate and manage organic catfish products. Products marketed include fresh catfish, catfish diversified products and catfish cultivation products. Catfish diversification products consist of organic catfish feed and organic probiotics. Catfish processed products that are developed are catfish crackers and shredded catfish. After the pantura catfish company operated for 2 years, there were several problems. The first problem is the product that is not standardized. the second problem is the unproductive women in the Lele Pantura company. To solve this problem, a women's cooperative was initiated by the name of Putri Pantura to empower women and optimize processed products for organic catfish. Product marketing is carried out using e-commerce concepts to facilitate product management and marketing. Inventory of raw materials is the most important element in production carried out by companies to produce products. Inventories can be defined as items stored for future use or sale. Inventory is one of the crucial factors in the production process that needs to be considered by considering several criteria. There are 4 criteria: cost, distribution of goods, quality of goods and quantity of goods. Cost criteria need to be considered so that storing raw materials does not require large costs. The designed e-commerce system uses the max and min method to manage the supply of raw materials in the Putri Pantura women's cooperative. Min and max methods are used to manage raw material inventory so that the cost to store goods is efficient. Management information system that is built has several features, namely: displaying products, stock management and product sales.

Machine learning is a method that enables the computer system to have the intelligence by analyzing the data and building an automated analytical model. The algorithms in machine learning are broadly classified as either iterative or non-iterative algorithms. An optimization algorithm plays a key role in machine learning that is solved by iterative methods that are executed iteratively to generate optimum solution or till a satisfactory solution is obtained. A non-iterative algorithm is computationally faster than iterative algorithms as it does not require iteration or little iteration to train the data. This paper makes an analysis of these iterative and non-iterative algorithms and performs comparison upon their respective advantages and drawbacks. These algorithms are compared based on various parameters such as time taken to build the model, correctly and wrongly classified instances, mean absolute error, root means square error, true positive, false positive, precision and recall are computed. Multi Criteria Decision Making method such as TOPSIS is used to improve the efficiency of the decision making process by suggesting best machine learning technique that improves classification

The application of positive legal institutions Regulation of the Minister of Health No. 21 of 2013 concerning HIV-AIDS Control is intended as a concrete effort by the Government to establish the formation of community legal behavior. The substance contains the ongoing charge of Progressive Law values, on the flow of "dare" values through the establishment of the concept of "status quo" thinking, that the problematic life of the Gay is no longer about human rights but has become a central core the problem of the destruction of the order of values of human civilization. The law must be at the forefront to prevent moral degradation due to the consequences of deviant behavior by Gay as a trigger for transmission of HIV-AIDS. Legal awareness and legal compliance must also be used as a benchmark to overcome the impact of HIV/AIDS transmission in the effort to manifest the formation of human civilization moral, sensible for the life of human behavior, including at the most personal level of life.

In the recent research, the minimum energy node in the manet environment damages the entire network communication process. The network monitors the every node battery level, and processing status of each and every node such as good node or bad node. If the packet transmitted through bad node, then it shorts the communication between source node and target node in the network framework. While routing identifying the fake path is difficult. Sometimes the node in the given network misguides the routing process to identify the wrong path. Such kind of node called as omission attacker node. This type of attack should block the communication with its neighbor node in specific routing path. The continuous communication is performed with delay because of the attacker node which refuses the communication process in the network environment. The vital difficulty is fully damage the routing process, packet dropped sequentially with higher interference and packet latency. These types of difficulties are analyzed, and provide perfect communication.

Graph Theory is one of a branch of Discrete Mathematic which has been grown rapidly. Recently the application of graph theory can be found in all aspects of real life as well as in natural and social science study. Many real life problems can be modeled by means of a graph. Especially in designing a large network, it has become an issue of growing interest due to the recent advances of very large scale integrated technology and a social network such as the recent booming of social media service sites. Furthermore, when we teach graph theory to the university students, many graph theory problems solving can be a trigger for the rise of students higher order thinking skill which is now very important and as a key success to survive in the 21st century. However, in Indonesia, a graph theory has not been taught to school students. Why and how does it happen? How hard to introduce a graph theory in school level? By literature review method, this paper will show that there are many interesting simple models of graph theory which can be introduced in school level to foster the development of the students higher order thinking skills, see [5]. The results show that it is feasible to introduce a graph theory in a school math curriculum level of Indonesia by showing some simple problem solving such as a spanning tree, layered diagram, dual graph, shortest path problem, graph coloring, rainbow connection, dominating set and other applications.

In this modern era where even small children have email IDs and fake social media accounts, it is quiet easy for young ones to get distracted or fall in traps. Cyber Mom filters and restricts the access to certain sites with unwanted and inappropriate contents for children. By using the picture of the person saved, the face is recognized and determined whether it is the face of a child or an adult. Based on this classification, the contents are filtered. The image from the storage file is processed using Viola Jones algorithm, Linear Binary Pattern and Support Vector Machine and it is categorized into child class and adult class. Then based on the class, the access to internet is given. If the class is adult then unrestricted access is provided. If the class is child, then the access to the sites mentioned will be blocked. By default, the system will be in child lock mode

Gene regulatory sequence analysis is performed by subjecting a nucleic acid or peptide sequence to recognize its features, function, structure, or evolution. In bioinformatics, a regulatory sequence is a part of nucleic acid molecules which is capable for detecting the cancer in a living organism. In tumor cells, genes are not reacted normally to their regulators' activity and be the characteristics of the cancer disease. The several optimization techniques identify the disordered genes in given gene expression data. However an effective cancer detection model was not performed with less complexity. In order to improve the cancer detection with less complexity, Combinatorial Annealed Bee Colony and Weighted Ranking Firefly Optimization technique is developed. The main objective of proposed technique is to detect the cancer disease using gene sequences and information. Initially, number of training gene regulatory sequences is taken from the microarray dataset. After that, Annealed combinatorial bee colony optimization is performed to determine and select the gene regulatory sequences using population based search approach. Then, weighted ranking firefly optimization technique is applied to find the optimal gene sequences (i.e. firefly) based on their light intensity. This helps to identify the tumor and normal behavior of sequence by comparing the trained sequences with test gene sequences. As a result, deep learning of hybrid optimization techniques is used for detecting the cancerous tumor using these optimal gene sequences at an earlier stage with minimum time. Experimental evaluation of proposed technique is carried out with respect to number of gene sequences. The results confirmed that the proposed technique improves the performance results in terms of cancer detection rate, false positive rate, Time complexity and space complexity. Based on the results and discussions, proposed technique improved the cancer detection rate with minimum space as well as time complexity than the other methods.

Emotion regulation is the ability to recognize, monitor, and evaluate the emotional responses. Especially, on the intensity and form of their reactions in achieving a goal. This research aims to find the factors that most influence the regulation of emotions. This matter is very important to comprehend the mechanism of emotion regulation, especially in teachers. The design of this research is the causal relationship study. The sample of this research amounted to 377 of the Public Elementary School teachers throughout the city of Padang. The sampling technique used is the cluster random sampling, which took samples from the 11 sub-districts in the city of Padang. The data analysis method used is the partial least squares path modeling to test the influence of trait conscientiousness and religiosity on the emotion regulation of teachers. The results of the data analysis show that all paths in the model are not removed. The conscientiousness has a significant influence on emotion regulation, and the religiosity also has a significant influence on emotion regulation, and the conscientiousness has a significant influence on the religiosity. The evaluation of the whole part of the calculation of the suitability of this model gives the conclusion that the proposed hypothesis model has a good level of model suitability. This research model has a high enough model suitability. The accuracy of the model is 48.1% which explains that the contribution of the model to explain the structural relationship of the three variables researched is 48.1% and the rest is explained by other variables that are not involved in the model. The religiosity's role is as a mediator in the relationship of conscientiousness and emotion regulation. The allegation of religiosity as a mediator is quite strong, this is because the correlation coefficient between the conscientiousness and religiosity is 0.462. The addition of the religiosity variable as a mediating variable explains that the addition of this variable will make an additional contribution as an explanation of the emotion regulation. The coefficient of determination on the emotion regulation variable is 34.3%.
