Hybridization of both plants and animals has innumerably benefitted man. An example of which is the numerous hybrids of Hibiscus rosa-sinensis which are primarily used for aesthetic purposes because of their colourful flowers. Phenotypic variations can already be observed in various parts of H.rosa-sinensis because of hybridization; hence, it is likely that modifications are occurring on microscopic structures such as the pollen. Through time, such variations could change the frequencies of alleles in the gene pool and could possibly lead to microevolution of the species. This study focused on the determination of variations in pollen grain morphology of ten (10) selected H. rosa-sinensis hybrids from the Institute of Plant Breeding of the University of the Philippines-Los Banos, specifically in terms of pollen aperture, size, shape, length of spine and sculpturing. The pollen shape, type of aperture and sculpturing were determined qualitatively. One-way ANOVA was employed if there is significant difference among the pollen of the hybrids in terms of the said quantitative characters. Pollen shape variation was determined through Elliptic Fourier Coefficient Analysis. Results showed that all hybrids have pantoporate type of aperture, echinate type of sculpturing, and spheroidal shape. Among the characters observed, variation was noted in their pollen size and spine length. Pollen size ranges from large to very large and long to very long spine length. Majority of the hybrids observed (7 out of 10) have very large pollen size and long pollen spines. One (1) hybrid has very large pollen size and short spines while two (2) have large pollen size and short pollen spines. There was also significant difference among the samples in terms of these characters based on statistical analysis. The hybrids with variations (Claire Baltazar x Cely Hermosa, Diamond Star and Vicky) cannot be considered outgroups on the basis of the said quantitative characters alone. Nevertheless, such variations observed should not be discounted as a possible modification in pollen morphology in progress as a result of hybridization.

Quantum-dot Cellular Automata (QCA) is a promising nanoscale technology with great prospect to provide compact circuits with low energy consumption when compared to CMOS technology. The increasing demand for efficient signal processors necessitates the design of adders and multipliers which occupy less area and consume less power. Serial adders are area efficient architectures that can compute n-bit addition with a single adder but takes more time when compared to n-bit parallel adders. Serial-parallel multipliers have simple, regular and scalable structures in contrast to multipliers that implement more complex multiplication algorithms. This paper proposes two novel energy and area efficient 4-bit QCA based serial-parallel multiplier circuits. Initially a QCA based serial adder is designed and then a 2-bit serial-parallel multiplier is realized. This multiplier is scaled up to form a 4-bit serial-parallel multiplier. A Baugh-Wooley (parallel) multiplier is constructed as a case study to illustrate differences between coplanar and multilayer crossovers in QCA. The design and simulation of the QCA circuits are performed using QCADesigner-E. Circuits are evaluated based on cell count, area and energy dissipation. It can be inferred from the simulation results that the proposed 4-bit serial-parallel multipliers have reduced cell count, area and energy dissipation.

Self Compacting Concrete is different from Conventional Concrete; it requires no internal or external vibration for its consolidation but readily deforms and flows without blockages through congested reinforcement and complicated structural forms, fills the entire volume of the mould and gets compacted under its own self-weight. In SCC, characteristics such as high fluidity, adequate viscosity and high resistance to segregation should exist. Fluidity of the paste can be increased by increasing the water-powder ratio and by addition of superplasticizers. Segregation and blockages can be avoided by reducing the size and content of coarse aggregate. At this present situation where availability, source of river sand is really challenge.QRD is used as one of the desirable useful product in this SCC concrete mix which also aim to reduce the cost of construction.SCC can be used for several applications such as high-rise buildings, precast industry, cooling towers, and marine structures, highly congested and complicated sections or even for general constructions. To utilize them in any structural application, the structural behavior of SCC also needs to be evaluated since in the fresh stage, SCC is quite different from CVC. This aspect is considered in this study. Reinforced Concrete (RC) beam of size 150mmx250mmx2500mm were casted using SCC and CVC and tested for static flexure using two point loading system and the flexural behavior of these beams are examined by casting SCC beams with three different bases of superplasticizers such as polycarboxyl, naphthalene and melamine bases. And each set of these different bases of specimens are also moulded with various tensile reinforcement such as 1.04%,1.23% and 1.37%.

The problem of a change in the mean of a sequence of random variables at an unknown time point has been addressed extensively in the literature. But, the problem of a change in the variance at an unknown time point has, however, been covered less widely. This paper analyses a sequence of autoregressive, AR(p), time series model in which the variance may have subjected to multiple changes at an unknown time points. Posterior distributions are found both for the unknown points of time at which the changes occurred and for the parameters of the model. A numerical example is discussed.

From cloudy skies to blowing winds, nature has been the sole guide for the farming community since time immemorial. However, with changing times, the sectorial needs also change and mere reliance on assumptive natural signs not only becomes insufficient, but also poses risk owing to the uncertainties associated with them. It is when the innovation comes in to bridge the gaps. The use of mobile technology in the aid of farmers has come a long way since its introduction. Many mobile applications have been developed by government and non-government agencies to help the farmers. They provide information related to weather, rainfall, soil condition and also issue advisories related to cropping and allied activities. This is no less than a revolution since mobile technology has replaced the need for farmers to visit government offices, meteorological centers and labs to gather information before, during and after every cropping season. Farmers can access all this information at the very touch of a button. It is also helping the community in realizing its dream of inclusion. With the use of mobile technology information can transcend across physical and geographical barriers, empowering the farming community.

This research uses sample of 87 respondents using purposive sampling technique in their selection. The data was analyzed by SEM using software Smart PLS 3.0. The results of this research indicate that the government's internal control system and distributive justice have negative effect on unethical behavior, while compliance accounting rules does not affect. Compliance accounting rules has negative effects on fraud, while the government's internal control system and distributive justice does not affect. Unethical behavior has a positive effect on fraud. The government's internal control system and distributive justice have negative effect on fraud through unethical behavior while, compliance accounting rules does not affect fraud. This study presents unethical behavior variables to detect accounting fraud. Therefore this research is very important to do. This will be able to find out whether fraud behavior in accounting is driven by the existence of unethical behavior personally, so that later the results of this study can be used as a reference for controlling accounting fraud that occurs especially in Indonesia and countries in Asia. The conclusion of this research is unethical behaviors are influenced by the government's internal control system and distributive justice, while compliance accounting rules does not affect. Compliance accounting rules influence the tendency of accounting fraud, while the government's internal control system and distributive justice do not. Unethical behavior cannot mediate the compliance towards the accounting rules for fraud, whereas the unethical behavior mediates the government's internal control system and distributive justice towards the fraud. Further research should use other variables outside the research variables that have been studied, such as position on the job.

The Internet is complex, broad, and ever-evolving. Almost 90% of all the data in the world has been generated over the last few years. In this vast ocean of data, how does one find relevant information? How do readers verify the credibility of information? In the realm of real estate, how do house hunters trust house listings? GoLocal is a real estate website that resolves some of these questions. I intend to develop GoLocal – an innovative real estate website to provide services not provided by any other existing websites, such as StreetEasy, Zillow, Trulia etc. GoLocal is primarily for international students looking for accommodations in a foreign place. It will offer hot deals, a personal assistant that will help them in finding a place and other discounts and privileges for students. The website will provide listings based on the user's requirements. The unique feature of GoLocal is that listings are 100 percent verified and authentic. It will also offer other features like commute estimates, crime rate statistics, contact facility among the owner, and previous tenants to help them understand the place and neighborhood better, as well as virtual tour and 3D model of the property.

Research of business interaction in marketing channels is often associated with the necessity to study the optimal business game scenarios, which provide the best implementation of enterprises business behavior strategies and maximize their profits. In such situations involvement of game-theoretic modeling apparatus in the process of determining key factors influencing profits formation of manufacturers and retailers, contributes to a better understanding of the cause and the effect relationships between the magnitude of profits, interpreted in the form of indicators of business strategies, and creates the prerequisites for finding ways of sharing joint profits in marketing channels. The purpose of study is to find optimal values in terms of channel members profits maximizing of the parameters of the advertising cost response function, in which the manufacturer and the retailer by agreement make decisions on the implementation of business game strategies, including pricing strategies and strategies for generating joint advertising costs. The paper presents a numerical experiment on the possible values of the parameters of the advertising cost response function, which takes into account the recommendations of the practice of enterprises functioning in distribution channels. Mathematical calculations have been made, which allow to build a model of cooperative game of the manufacturer and the retailer, based on the non-dimensional form of retail price values as well as values of joint advertising costs. The optimal solution of cooperative game, which within the numerical experiment is presented as the possible maximum values of profits of the manufacturer, the retailer and the vertical marketing channel, is made. The comparative analysis of the solutions of cooperative game and non-cooperative game, which involves the formation of Nash equilibrium, is given to determine the benefits of cooperative game model for both participants of the vertical marketing channel in terms of maximizing their profits and profit of the channel as a whole. The results obtained can be an information base for further calculations and comparisons of cooperative and non-cooperative models as interactions between participants of supply chains. In addition, the results of numerical simulations form the initial base for comparisons with other variants of cooperative game model, which involve changing a range and a step change of output values of the model.

Sentiment analysis is essential for social alignment, especially when there are many Twitter users nowadays. In every rational sense, each of the previous works is dependent on old classification systems, for example SVM, Naïve Bayes, etc. Starting from late, fundamental learning techniques have shown promising accuracy in this space about the body of tweets in English. In this article we propose the fundamental assessment that enormous learning structures apply to gather the sense of Twitter information. There are two colossal learning methods with regard to our evaluation: short-term memory (LSTM) and dynamic convolution neural network (DCNN). A preprocessing of certifiable information has been promoted. We also investigate the impact of word management on tweets. The results show that critical learning strategies classified old style structures in all aspects: Naïve Bayes and SVM, with the exception of Maximum entropy.

Arvi city is developing rapidly due to industrialization since last two decades. It is considered as fourth most polluted city in India. The present study was carried out with a view to have an understanding about the pollution status of Arvi district, particularly quality in vicinity of Industrial area and mining projects. Environmental studies were carried out on ground and surface water to find out the physico-chemical parameter like TDS. It is necessary to collected sample from different sites, in order to evaluate the drinking water quality in and around Arvi district. The analysis of various parameters using standard methods (APHA/NEERI) and their comparison with WHO (World health organization) standards values, suggest that most of the parameter within permissible limit given by Central pollution control board of India (CPCB). Concentration of parameters beyond the limits in some areas could be reduced and could be an invaluable source for domestic purposes in the region. The present project accounts water quality of various sites situated in Arvi and their efficiencies respectively. Generally, Water is a good solvent and pick up impurities easily. Pure water is tasteless, colorless, and odorless. “Dissolved solids” refer to any minerals, salts, metals, cations or anions dissolved in water. Total dissolved comprises inorganic salts (principally calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium, bicarbonates, chlorides and sulphates) and some small amount of organic matter that are dissolved in water. We generally discuss TDS for freshwater system only, as salinity consists of some of the ions contributing in the definition of TDS. The Study of water quality for streams, rivers and lakes is the most important application of TDS, although TDS is not primary pollutant, but TDS used as an indicator of aesthetics characteristics of drinking water and as indicator of the presence of broad array of chemical contaminant

Structural design optimization is a mathematical approach that concerns in finding the maxima and minima function subject to some constraints. This involves various optimization technique to find the best possible design in terms of weight, reliability and thus the overall cost. Various researchers have worked on different optimization techniques in finding out the efficient and light weight structures that are essential for the actual design of tall structures. This paper summarizes the various techniques of optimization of steel truss or towers that have been used till now. For this purpose, different optimization techniques have been studied which involves the various geometric constraints like changing the base width, bracing pattern, area of cross section. By reviewing the literature of the works done, the common objective emphasizes the need for finding the minimum weight of the structure. From studies we see optimization using metaheuristic algorithm are effective in order to solve truss problems. Metaheuristic algorithms are nature -inspired and most widely used due to its applicability and feasibility to various types of structures with many numbers of design variables. In this paper a 25-bar space benchmark truss has been considered for demonstrating the performance of various optimization algorithm. A comparative study is done based on the performance in lowering the weight of the total truss. Results shows that optimal weight of the truss structure can be obtained effectively using Whale optimization algorithm and it proved to be robust and efficient than other algorithms.

Cibodas Village, Pasirjambu district, Bandung Region is a place that has high potential in developing dairy industry and the producer of vegetables. The high interest of the citizens to plant various vegetables and raising cattle cause an increase in the amount of waste production. Cow manure (CM) and vegetable waste (VW) are mostly thrown into the river and made the water turned to green and thus contains a lot of bacteria. One way to handle this waste is to use vermicomposting method using Lumbricus rubellus. The purpose of this study was to observe the speed of waste degradation and quality of compost with variations of worm density and variations of row material. The research method using three variations of the worm density (1.5kg/m2; 2kg/m2; 2.5kg/m2), 4 variations of raw materials (100%CM, 100%VW, 50%CM and 50%VW, 30%CM and 70%VW). Biodegradation calculation is performed by calculating the percentage difference before and after the process of composting. The results showed that the worm density effect on the biodegradation of organic matter. Worm density 1.5 kg/m2 is the highest earthworm biomass and also giving a lower number of vermicompost. Variations materials 30%CM and 70%VW shows that the Lumbricus rubellus worm has high potential to reduce waste into compost and the analysis result showed that nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium and C/N ratio has met the standard of SNI 19-7030-2004 (2,201%; 1,348%; 2,741%; 9,523). Furthermore, because of the analysis result has fit into the standard, it can be known that vermicomposting can be used for the growth and development of healthy plants.

The segment of Fast Moving Consumer Goods is one of the rapid growing segments in this entire world. There are several FMCG companies working in our country ranging from Hindustan Unilever Limited to ITC including Patanjali. The rationale of this research work is to know about the preference and perception of households of Patanjali products in District-Mathura (UP) - India. The primary data was gathered from 170 households of the district with the help of a well prepared questionnaire. Exploratory Factor analysis is used for the analysis of the data while reliability analysis has been conducted to test the reliability of the data. The important findings of this work revealed that the originality of the products along with their quality influences the households here to buy the Patanjali products. Also, the household perceives these products very safe to be consumed as they are unadulterated and the company is not compromising with the quality of its products. Further analysis of the facts also explain whether the company may have long term sustained success in the market or not, in response of which the households have agreed to repeatedly purchase the Patanjali products and they also refer it to their relatives and friends. Therefore, it can be assumed primarily that the households generally prefer to buy Patanjali products over other available substitutes in the market because they perceive these products to be of superior quality.

Understanding the concept of fractions is the result of construction of the fractional objects. The construction of this fractional concept is done through visualization that manipulates the making of drawings, diagrams or animations for the appearance of fractional information. This research is a qualitative study that describes the construction of fractional concepts as equal parts of the whole and the construction of a fractional concept of value. Subjects in this study as many as 9 selected students from 22 students are grouped into 3 groups, namely (1) failed construction groups and true visualization; (2) failed construction group and failed visualization; and (3) true construction group and true visualization. The results of this study are group (1) the visualization has followed the appropriate pattern but is less precise in the calculation, the group (2) does not understand the concept of fraction so that it fails to visualize, and group (3) can already visualize the concept of fractions with different visualization form from the pattern.

Automobiles has been become the basic necessities of day-to-day life.The statistics says that about 45% of the accidents are occurred due to the light beam, there exists a problem of travelling during the night time. In the existing system, the high light beam will automatically turn ON whenever the surrounding light conditions are found to be dark and vice versa.Also the brightness of the light beam is varied by the drivers based on the presence and absence of opposite vehicle. In our daily life most of the drivers are not changing the intensity of the headlight even though there is an opposite vehicle. It causes irritation to the driver while driving in night time. To overcome this problem this paper presents a system in which the light beam is synchronized from high beam to low beam if the intensity of the opposite head light is found to be high. After crossing the vehicle, the headlight will automatically turned to high beam .An additional feature of identifying the amount of CO2 present inside the vehicle is also proposed in this paper. CO2 measurement is done by a gas sensor which is interfaced with the microcontroller. On reaching the threshold analog value of the gas sensor after which the individual feels uncomfortable, the automobile windows are opened automatically for ventilation and avoiding suffocation

Masdar can come up with different functions in a sentence and be similar in size and morphological performance in the syntax. In this case, it is necessary to have a clear understanding of the features and terms of use of the masjid and those parts of the sentence in order to correctly identify and translate the studied parts of the sentence. Masdar can come in the functions of the head or the secondary parts of the sentence. In the analyzed sentence, it is represented by a mask, and it is not difficult to distinguish that part of the cross. Because they are rulers in a sentence, their syntactic role and their semantic meaning are clearly expressed in the sentence. As for the secondary parts, however, they are morphologically similar, although they come with syntactic and semantically different functions if expressed in masks. Therefore, in identifying the secondary parts of a sentence, we must pay attention to the semantic and syntactic aspects of the main parts of the sentence and the secondary ones.

The concept of ethnicity (Gaines Jr S. O., 1997) is pictured as an individual’s shared biological and cultural heritage within a given society. Inter-ethnic relations refer to the side-by-side existence of people with varying ethnic backgrounds. In multi-ethnic villages, the relation between interpersonal or “intra-ethnic” and inter-group or “inter-ethnic” relationships is a significant indicator of evaluating the degree of permeability of intra-ethnic territories and acceptance of the ethnic by the state. The study of the inter-ethnic relationship has been increasing, and the inter-ethnic relationship has many different meanings. It goes together with the integration of the state. This article will be an updated view of the field, current issues, and findings, and introduce a framework to facilitate the study of inter-ethnic relationships. The majority of this article will reflect the literature and focus on inter-ethnic relationships, while also drawing attention to findings from the field study. The study takes a balanced view of the ethnic competition approach (Coser, 1956; Coenders, 2001) and the structural approach. In the present, it is more focused on the variance in inter-ethnic relationships in sociocultural, economic and political-religious spheres and in which conclusively to know their levels and intensity of interaction with the ‘ethnic other.’

A large amount of Internet traffic is organized through content delivery networks (CDNs). CDNs improve Internet access in terms of the response time and system throughput by mapping end-users to the nearest servers based on their locality, which known as request routing (RR). Most CDN systems use domain name servers (DNS) to redirect clients by issuing the IP address of the nearest server. Owing to the fact that DNS records have an expiration time (TTL), clients frequently have to contact name servers to update their IP addresses, which increases the connection delay. On the other hand, clients are demanding faster Internet connections. Because routers will be able to provide services in future networks, router-based RR has been proposed. In this paper, we study an analytical model of router-based RR. We present its architecture design and implementation, and show how router-based RR can be used to effectively redirect a clients’ request. Numerical analysis results demonstrate the effectiveness of router-based RR, which shows a 64.4% reduction of the response time for a client redirection.

A printed circuit board (PCB) with glitches or inconsistent flatness on the surface plane is common in microwave applications. However, so far there has not been any product capable of overcoming this problem during the PCB fabrication process. In this work, we have successfully constructed a PCB milling machine capable of milling a PCB with uneven flatness. Method: The proposed machine is embedded with a firmware to restructure the g-code in a way that the milling machine is commanded to execute the following procedure: Step 1: Create the Heightmap of the PCB by the probing process; Step 2: Convert probing signal to 2-dimensional grid of surface map; Step 3: During the process of actual milling, alter the height of the milling bit on the fly, according to the surface flatness, and equipped with safety function embedded in laser system. Results: The proposed milling machine has successfully milled soft and non-flat high-speed PCB’s with surface height variations in excess of 150 mm and fabricate an antenna embedded circuit with an ability to pause when the plane angle change drastically. The proposed machine was fully functional and was equipped with all the basic safety functionality, but the total cost spent on this project was around US$ 1500, as opposed to the market price of a similar German-made product being sold at US$70,000. Conclusion: A machine capable of milling microwave PCB’s with an uneven flatness with safety function equipped has been successfully constructed at Vietnamese German University at a cost of US$1800, which is far below the market price of a similar counterpart.

SMS spam is a contemporary issue fundamentally because of the accessibility of very modest mass SMS bundles and the way that SMS induces higher reaction rates as it's far a depended on and personal service. In this paper, we will be differentiating the messages into two categories: Ham and Spam. Ham is described as the dataset that includes the textual content of SMS messages at the side of the label indicating whether the records is legitimate message or now not. Spam is defined as the dataset that includes the textual content of SMS messages along with the label indicating the junk messages. In SMS Spam messages, the advertisers utilize the SMS text messages to target the customers with unwanted advertising. But it is troublesome, because the users pay a fee per SMS received. To overcome this, we perform a comparison between the machine learning algorithms to predict the messages and calculate the accuracy criterion by using the SMS spam dataset.

Most of developing countries are on the Asian continent, so populations dominated by developing countries including Indonesia. Urban public facilities will continue to be demanded to serve city residents, including supporters of population mobility. Urban residents mobility is very dependent on internal aspects such as daily needs, external aspects such as the availability of public transport modes (conventional/paratransit). The services and characteristics of public transportation influence on urban mobility. Differences in services and characteristics of transport give advantages/disadvantages of transport. This study aims to investigate the influence of services/characteristics of paratransit on the triggering variables that change the mobility patterns of urban residents. The investigation was carried out with data on the perception of becak masin users in the city of Padangsidimpuan. The perception of 300 becak masin users was analyzed by SEM-PLS (structural equation modeling - partial least square) method. The research findings show that the services and characteristics of becak masin influence on the mobility patterns of urban residents and directly affect the variables that build mobility patterns. The becak masin service directly affects the route of travel because it is able to serve several routes at once. The characteristics of the becak masin directly affect the travel needs of individuals/groups that have more difficulty, because the transport is of small dimension and is able to move on steep roads.

In this paper, the solar energy from SPV is extracted to charge the EV battery in an efficient manner using A- source dc-dc boost converter as a charge controller. The proposed converter is targeted to achieve high efficiency with low ripple content at the output side by having a proper design of an LC filter for RC load which acts as a load. The extracted power from the solar is completely transferred to the load in order to satisfy the maximum power transfer theorem. The power rating is around (400-450) W. The proposed converter is suitable for storing energy from any type of renewable source since it draws continuous current from the source. Using ASBC, the 25VDC from solar is boosted to 75VDC for charging an EV battery. The switching frequency maintained for MOSFET is 50 kHz at the boosting stage. The proposed converter is completely verified using MATLAB simulation study for both open-loop as well as closed loop systems respectively. The implementation of the PI controller and MPPT technique is done in a closed loop simulation system in order to have proper tuning. The MPPT technique used is the incremental conductance method for maximum power extraction purposes.

Nowdays, composite materials such as CFRP, GFRP are used in place of conventional materials in many industries like automotive and aerospace due to their improved properties. Carbon fibre reinforced polymer (CFRP) is manufactured by fusing carbon fibre and epoxy resin. Due to development of these types of materials, advance material processing techniques are developed. There are many machining processes which are used for mass production and less time consumption.CO2 laser cutting is a non-contact advance material processing technique used to cut different materials with mass production rate. However CO2 laser cutting of CFRP cutting is challenging due to different-different properties of carbon fibre and epoxy resin. CO2 laser cutting of 1mm CFRP sheet using a low power CO2laser (150w) and cutting speed (1mm/sec) was investigated in this research. Although, this low power CO2 laser has cut CFRP sheet of 1mm thickness but cut quality is not so good due to low laser power. MRR is also very low. Heat affected zone generated is low due to low laser power. Striation formation occurs, due to this, cutting edge is not up to quality cut. So, it has been shown in this research that CO2 laser can be used to cut CFRP by using low laser power. The work performed in this research will be useful in aerospace and automotive industry needs.

Fixed sequence classification is an important task in data mining. The problem of sequence classification is the use of rules consisting of interesting items that are contained in the data sets labeled sequences and the included class labels. Interesting levels are calculated from a set of items that are in a class ordered by linking and maintaining each item. There are a number of security patterns that may be hidden in the database. A mining algorithm looks for a complete set of patterns and meets the minimum support threshold (frequency), highly efficient and scalable, with a number of database scans incorporating various types of user-specific constraints. In the existing system, sequence classification techniques use several machine learning algorithms such as NaiveBayes, neighboring K-neighbors, decision trees, hidden markov models, SVM. This exit methodology can handle cases of minor deviations in certain events and acknowledges the occurrence of the pattern several times. In this work, LDA classifiers are used to classify and train datasets to improve dataset accuracy and efficiency to facilitate user analysis. Machine learning process is implemented to maintain the effectiveness of the prediction methodology. LDA prediction compared to SVM to prove performance improvement and linear classification id is used to improve classifier accuracy. Finally, the quality of the miner pattern is evaluated by the proposed approach pattern as features in several classification features based on different features.

The authors desired to expand the base of knowledge and application of ML-induced impacts with the specific goal of demonstrating the potential of phosphor based impact sensors. When a KAlSiO4:Dy samples are deformed impulsively by applying a load from a fixed height, then initially the ML intensity increases with time, attains a peak value Im at a particular time tm, and later on it decreases with time. The peak intensity Im increases linearly with the increasing height of the load. After tm, initially the ML intensity decreases at a fast rate, and later on it decreases at a slow rate. Light was generated from the interaction of a dropped mass and a small number of luminescence centers in the KAlSiO4: Dy powder. The ML in KAlSiO4: Dy samples can be understood on the basis of the piezoelectrically -induced electron detrapping model, in which the local piezoelectric field near the Dy2+ centres reduces the trap-depth, and therefore, the detrapping of filled electron traps takes place, and subsequently the energy released non-radiatively during the electron-hole recombination excites the Dy2+ centres and de-excitation gives rise to the ML.

There are currently more than 176 high schools in DKI Jakarta with no wastewater treatment plant in the canteens. Canteens wastewater contains high organic compounds which must be treated before discharging into the body of the water. A subsurface constructed wetland (SCW) multilayer filtration (MLF) system with vertical flow (VF) field plants was planned, implemented and operated at the High School in South Jakarta. The field-scale of the SCW-MLF was planted with Vetiveria zizanioides and the other plants free (MLF). These were operated at a hydraulic load of 6.9 m3/day, and the organic loading rate was between 1.43 and 8.3 kg BOD/day. Research has shown that the removal efficiencies in SCW-MLF for COD, BOD, TKN, and TP were 70.5%, 75%, 62.6%, and 54.3%, respectively. Also, the COD and BOD organic loading at SCW-MLF were between 917.08 – 4,126.84 kg COD/Ha/day and 309.78 – 850.73 kg BOD/Ha/day, respectively. Based on the results, the SCW-MLF unit was more efficient compared with MLF in COD, BOD, oil and grease removals, TKN, and TP parameters. Besides, a two-sided t-test was used to identify any significant differences in the mean efficiencies of the two units, with p < 0.05. In conclusion, SCW-MLF has proven to be more effective in the treatment of wastewater from canteens which complies with the Ministry of the Environment and Forestry’s Standard for wastewater Nr.

The investigation of cancer disease have become the recent trend in data mining. The availability of gene expression data has allowed researchers to explore large volume of gene expression data for differentiating cancer causing genes from normal functioning genes. Microarray data are composed of large quantities of genes that are expression of certain conditions. Predicting and classifying genes that are responsible for causing tumor or cancer are challenging. Since large amounts of genes require high computations. Also, Microarray datasets are known for high dimensionality, and require dimensionality reduction or feature selection methods for building models. For cancer detection, a modified whale optimized algorithm is proposed to select feature genes from the microarray dataset. Selecting relevant feature genes helps in dimensionality reduction of the dataset and target genes that are responsible for causing cancer. The proposed method’s performance is studied by using different cancer microarray dataset.

Pheromones are highly volatile substances released by insects in micro quantities to communicate with each other. They were discovered in 1959 by Peter Carlson and Martin Lusher. For a person, it was very important in this discovery that pheromone is not just a smell, but an odor-command, a smell-command, having felt that the insect performs a certain action. By learning to synthesize pheromones artificially, a person was able to order insects and control their behavior. The simplest and most obvious way to use this unique opportunity was to order pests to go into traps. Thus, you can either completely get rid of them, or at least precisely determine the moment of their appearance and quantity, in order to further develop an effective plan of struggle.

In this work, non-polar polyethylene with polar poly(vinyl chloride) is considered as polymer-polymer mixers. Direct mixing of poly(vinyl chloride) and polyolefin’s leads to the formation of incompatible mixtures that have weak complex properties. To achieve the compatibility of this mixture, chlorinated polyethylene and a copolymer of polyvinyl chloride with polyethylene were used as a compatibilizer. The elastic-strength properties for various composite mixtures under various exposure and type of compatibilizer were studied. For all components of the mixtures, a special role is noted for compatibilizers capable of causing the extraction and formation of a grafted copolymer of polyvinylchloride (PVC) with polyethylene (PE) in the process of dehydrochlorination, which enhances interfacial adhesion. A positive deviation of the elastic modulus at low polyethylene contents (5-20 wt.%) From the additive curve indicates optimal compatibilization of the mixtures.

When used in option pricing, a classical Monte Carlo method fails to deliver highly accurate results even when variance reduction techniques are introduced. This lack of accuracy is particularly striking when one is dealing with exotic options. In this paper we aim at improving the quality of the price estimates given by Monte Carlo simulations within the regular Black & Scholes framework, through the use of an approach in which suitable weights are applied to adjust the numerical evaluation of the expected value stated by the Feynman-Kac theorem. Computing the said weights requires the use of an empirical density estimation, namely we will be using a kernel density estimator coupled with various kernels some of which are based on known probability density functions and others based on orthogonal polynomials. The suggested technique was applied to pricing an arithmetic Asian option and the achieved results were compared to prices computed via a classical Monte Carlo procedure, the target price being a well-known numerical solution of the Roger & Shi PDE. Our method has proved its success in providing more accurate prices for all of the test cases which implies that the use of the technique would probably be adequate for a wide variety of high-dimensional pricing problems.

The 5G is designed to be ultra-dense network. Various services are connected to the same network. Mainly, the enhanced Mobile Broad Band (eMBB), Ultra Reliable Low Latency Communication (URLLC) and Massive Machine Type Communications (mMTC) coexist in a hybrid 5G network. This coexistence, in addition to the constraints at the physical layer, mainly the format of the packets, introduces a fundamental challenge concerning the radio resource allocation. In the present proposal, we design a smart downlink scheduler which aims to satisfy the variety of services connected to the 5G. The scheduler aims to overcome the challenge of the variance of the wireless channel in addition to the use of fixed budget delays. The main target of the proposal is to increase the capacity of the communication network with quality of service guarantee.

Breast cancer is a second largest disease in worldwide and even in India as per the statistics of world health organization after the lung cancer. The conventional approach to identify the breast cancer is biopsy, it takes on an average of more than week together time and most of the hospitals do not have this facility to perform the biopsy. This approach also demands expertise in the domain of analysis of tumor tissues to identify the cancerous cell. Hence to overcome the drawbacks of the conventional diagnosis system. In this paper a novel approach has been presented to diagnose the breast cancer by analyzing X-ray mammograms by a technique called rotational contour based fractal dimension with an interval of 60 degree. In this paper, the work is categorized into four phases,(1).Enhancing the mammogram images using Gabor filter and also estimated PSNR before and after the enhancement of the mammogram images that leads to accurate segmentation of tumor from the mammogram. (2).The automatic segmentation of region of the tumor through watershed and morphological operations and also obtained the contour of the tumor. (3). The contour analysis has been performed using a new approach called contour based fractal dimension approach that gives excellent classification result for the benign and malignant tumor. The Fractal Dimension for benign tumor ranges from 1.462 to 1.71 where as for malignant tumor the FD ranges from 1.78 to 3.78. And the Standard Deviation for benign tumor 0.06 and for malignant is 0.58. (4).In classification phase the automatically identifying and segregating the cancer disease. In this work, consider huge set of images from publicly available popular databases such as Digital Datagram Screening Mammogram, MIAS and also considered for the images available in the SDM hospital, Ujire and Dharwad etc. This approach gives almost 100 percent accuracy. Hence this technique can be considered as diagnostic parameter for the identification and classification of disease which serves the oncologist to take better decision.

An innovative method of teaching such as cooperative learning was proposed almost four decades ago to improve the classroom interactions. Though the method is very popular among teachers, through the faculty development programmes, its poor success in implementation is a matter of concern. Its unique characteristics of improving both academic skill and social skills in students are ideal for the holistic development in students especially for the professional courses. It gives emphasis on cooperation rather than competition among students in a class. In this study, we focus on implementing a cooperative learning method at a University level. The effectiveness was measured based on assessment done at the end of activity for the knowledge and student’s reflection was considered to assess the improvement of social skills. It resulted in an overall improvement in knowledge gain as well as social skills among students.

The population of turtles in the sea of Enggano Island is threatened with extinction, due to over-exploitation regardless of its protection. The government has regulated turtle protection by establishing Law Number 5 of 1990 concerning Conservation of Natural Resources and Ecosystems. The functionaries of the customary law of the Enggano also made a similar effort by developing material on the contents which regulates the protection of turtles. This study raises the issue of how to adjust conservation values in national law and Enggano customary law in turtle protection? This research was a sociological juridical study and used a qualitative approach that starts from legal sociology, carried out on Enggano Island, by utilizing formal and non-formal leaders as informants in the Kaitora tribal community, Kaahoaa, Kaarubi, Kauno and Kaharuba, who live in villages - Enggano Island village. The results of the study found, first, that the substance of the Enggano customary law norms had conservation values related to the protection of turtles stated in the formulation of customary law norms which contained the prohibition of catching turtles for all needs, except for the need for ceremonial grandeur (yakadea) if being disobey, the sanctions will be given in the form of customary fines amounting to money, must pay for traditional ceremonies as a media for imposing social sanctions in the form of apologies to tribal leaders and other Engano island communities. Second, that the choice of adjusting the conservation values in national law and Enggano Customary Law in turtle protection can be done by describing the norms of turtle protection which stated in national legal norms into Village Regulations, or Customary Village Regulations which are a unity with the system hierarchy of laws and regulations in the Indonesian legal system, and accompanied by the obligation of indigenous peoples to carry out turtle breeding that can be used for the needs of traditional ceremonies and wedding ceremonies as an effort to preserve the traditions of the Enggano island community. The adjustment of conservation values of turtle protection through the integration of legal substances (Law, Government Regulation on Village Regulations) is the best model in optimizing the protection of turtles without sacrificing the interests of traditional rituals that are still maintained for generations in the lives of the Enggano people.

In precision agriculture, a huge amount of data is needed to control different parameters of the field. To notice the change in field parameters with respect to time, continuous monitoring of these sensors is needed. But it is impossible to monitor the system all the time manually as it has some limitations like personal biases, more time and constant involvement of farmers. Automated smart monitoring system can overcome these problems efficiently. But when accessing device like mobile, tab, etc. which beyond the range of the network of base station, then sensor nodes cannot be accessed. To overcome this limitation an automated global field data acquisition system is proposed. It is helpful to retrieve data at anytime from anywhere in the world. In this proposed model, all types of communication among the sensors are done through the two ways: through the cellular network and through the internet in a secure way.

OpenBullet is an open-source testing tool which has been growing in popularity in the amateur offensive security community. It is commonly used for credential stuffing. The application has grown around an underground economy which focuses on the combination of configuration files and credential dumps. In this paper I will discuss the environment that fostered the application, its use, and defensive measures which can be taken to protect against it. Password leak lists are bought and sold on black markets, as well as configurations files for the program, as well as large lists of proxies which can be used to disguise the origin of the attack. Using OpenBullet everything that is needed to successfully conduct a credential stuffing attack can be purchased with very little or no technical knowledge being needed, aside from learning how to use the OpenBullet user interface. The modularity and ease of use has bolstered the black-market.

Under normal operating conditions nuclear facilities have potential release of radioactive substances into water bodies called routine releases. Radionuclide transfer in the environment is very complex so that simplification is made with a mathematical model approach using the Surface Water Modeling Systems 10.1 software that resolves hydrodynamic differential equations with the finite element method. Pollutants dispersion is strongly influenced by advection and diffusion process, which for the river the process of advection becomes more dominant. The goal of this research is to model the distribution of 137Cs radionuclides in Cisalak River located around Serpong Nuclear Area. 137Cs is the most dominant radionuclide contained in radioactive effluent discharges. In this research the simulation is divided into two stages, they are the simulation of the hydrodynamic model using the Resources Management Associates-2 (RMA-2) module to model the flow and continued using RMA-4 to model the distribution of pollutants. The concentration of 137Cs at the discharges source are the highest, lowest, and average value in the last three years. The results of the research it is obtained an overview of the 137Cs distribution model along Cisalak river flow whose concentration value is a function of distance and time, besides that the pollutant concentration is very influential to the characteristics of the river and also the flow discharge, both river and effluent flow discharge.

In the highly technological modern world the advent of internet provides university students with necessary information in just a flick of a finger and information can be accessed in reputable educational institutions with state-of-the-art facilities, mainly the library. Yet, given the information facility, the dilemma is, it seems not easy to find the facts desired, and in the form, it is wanted in order to use it effectively. In other words, students experience problems in gathering exact information. One solution to the information problem—the one that seems to be most often adopted in schools (as well as in business and society in general)—is to speed things up. Hence, try to pack in more and more content, to work faster to get more done which is considered a down proposition because speeding things up only means to work longer. Given adequate information access, what is still needed is to think about helping everyone to work smarter, not faster. There is an alternative way to speed things up. It’s the smarter solution—one that will support people, especially the students to develop the skills and understanding they need to find, process, and use information effectively. This smarter solution focuses on process as well as content. This is advancing the information literacy or information skill of the students using a process. One process that that can be employed is the Big6 Process which is a process model of how people of all ages solve an information problem. From practice and study, this practice is most widely known and widely used approach to teaching information and technology skills all over the world in K-12 schools and in higher education institutions but not in Philippine schools or in state universities. This study employed Big6 Process in the learning of the students in the college level at Laguna State Polytechnic University. As Eisenberg (1998) emphasized in her study that Big6 is an inquiry process which is very critical to students’ learning in all areas like social studies (research process), science (experimental process), mathematics (problem solving process) this study was found equally helpful in the development of cognitive learning as it provides a strategy for developing the foundations of higher order thinking skills, reasoning, and critical thinking. True, the Big6 information problem-solving model was found applicable to the students as they need and use information everyday. Moreover, it was found countless times helpful in integrating information search along with technology tools in a systematic process in using, applying, and evaluating information for specific needs and tasks. After this study was conducted and documented, it was found to be significant and beneficial to the faculty members in the university across courses with the perception that if all students will be familiar and aware with the Big6 Process, completing their assigned tasks like assignments, requirements, and research among others, will be easier and the students can work smarter over the assigned task, hence, checking will be easier for the teacher. Students can use the Big6 Skills whenever they need information. It can be applied as a thinking process to deal with most problems and therefore can be applied consistently and repeatedly throughout their studies. Another useful way to view the Big6 is as a set of basic, essential life skills which can be applied across situations in school, personal, and work settings.

Examining and protecting air quality in this world has become one of the essential activities for every human in many industrial and urban areas today. The meteorological and traffic factors, burning of fossil fuels, and industrial parameters play significant roles in air pollution. With this increasing air pollution, we need to implement models that will record information about concentrations of air pollutants. The deposition of these harmful gases in the air is affecting the quality of people's lives by altering their health, especially in urban areas. In this paper, regression techniques are used to predict the concentration of Carbon monoxide in the environment. Carbon monoxide causes headaches, dizziness, vomiting, nausea, and heart diseases. The dataset is downloaded and imported to the project. It contains data on average hourly responses of major air pollutants for nearly one year. This dataset is used to predict the amount of Carbon monoxide based on other parameters using regression analysis. It creates awareness among people about the air quality degradation, and it's health effects. Support environmentalists and government to frame air quality standards and regulations based on issues of toxic and pathogenic air exposure and health-related hazards for human welfare.

Student behavior makes an important role in its career. Many attributes gives the indication of users interest towards particular stream as well as self-employed startup orientation. As students are going through their academics and pursuing their interested courses, it is very important for them to assess their capabilities and identify their interests so that they will get to know in which career area their interests and capabilities are going to put them in. This will help them in improving their performance and motivating their interests so that they will be directed towards their targeted career and get settled in that [20]. Also recruiters while recruiting the candidates after assessing them in all different aspects, these kind of career recommender systems help them in deciding in which job role the candidate should be kept in based on his/her performance and other evaluations. Career indecision is a difficult obstacle confronting adolescents. Traditional vocational assessment research measures it by means of questionnaires and diagnoses the potential sources of career indecision. Based on the diagnostic outcomes, career counselors develop treatment plans tailored to students. However, because of personal motives and the architecture of the mind, it may be difficult for students to know themselves, and the outcome of questionnaires may not fully reflect their inner states and statuses.

Proteinuria in asymptomatic children especially if persistent and significant may be an early marker of chronic kidney disease, however global controversy exists regarding the cost effectiveness of screening program in detection and prevention of chronic kidney disease in children. Objective:To study the prevalence of proteinuria in asymptomatic school children in BahriWasat administrative unit in Khartoum North Locality, Khartoum State, Sudan. Methods This was a descriptive, cross-sectional, community-based study , that was conducted in schools located in BahriWasat administrative unit, in Khartoum north locality within the period from September 2018 –March 2019 and covered 430 schoolchildren selected by multiple stage stratified sampling. Clean midstream urine was collected in a clean plastic container from participants; urine sample was examined by dipstick method for proteinuria, and. Data collected, prepared, entered, and analyzed using SPSS version 25.0. Results This study covered 430 study participants. Concerning the results of urinary screening by dipstick, our study realized that the prevalence of proteinuria was 32(7.4%). Only 2(6.3%) of participants (who were positive for protein urea by dipstick), were significantly positive for early morning urine albumin who represent only (0.5%) of all study participants. Half of them were 50th – 90th BP centile, the mean of GFR 84.5 ml /mim/1.73 m2, Urea 24.5 mg, Creatinine 0.8 mg, and Urine albumin creatinine ratio found to be 31.0 mg of albumin /g of creatinine. The analysis found that there was no significant difference in the prevalence of proteinuria according to the gender (the prevalence was (7.5%) among males compared with (7.4%) among females with p-value = 0.97). There was no significant difference in the prevalence of proteinuria according to the age (the prevalence was (7.5%) among participants who age 5-10 years compared with (7.4%) among participants who age 11 - 15 with p-value = 0.97). Conclusion and recommendation: this study showed that the prevalence of proteinuria is 7.4 %, which similar to most study worldwide and we recommended no more screening for proteinuria by dipstick because it is not cost-effective and less sensitive and less specific in early detection of CKD.

Interleukin-7 (IL-7) has always been found to play a significant role in the development of lymphoid cell as well as in its maintenance. In breast cancer (BC) subjects, through the activation of JAK1/3-STAT5 and PI3K/AKT pathways, IL-7 promotes the growth of tumor cells. The current study aims to find the possible association of IL7RA (rs6897932) polymorphism with the susceptibility of BC among the diverse population of Kerala, South India. A case-control study was conducted at two health care centers in Kerala, South India involving 112 breast cancer patients (females) and 112 healthy controls (females). Genetic analysis was performed to detect IL7RA (rs6897932) polymorphism e employing polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism (PCR-RFLP) method. Odds ratio (OR) with 95% class interval (CI) were used to evaluate the relationship of IL7RA (rs6897932) polymorphism with BC susceptibility. Statistical analysis was performed using Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS; version 21.0) software and Medcalc software (version 16.4.3). The frequency distribution of IL7RA (rs6897932) polymorphism was found to be different between case and control groups significantly indicating IL7RA gene could play an important role in the pathogenesis of BC among South Indian population. The rs6897932 homozygous mutant CC genotype (OR=3.04; 95% CI =1.46-6.32; p=0.002), as well as the C allele (OR= 2.59; 95% CI =1.43-4.70; p=0.001), was found to increase the risk of BC among the studied South Indian (Kerala) subjects. The present study provided evidence regarding the role of IL7RA (rs6897932) polymorphism in the development of breast cancer among the South Indian population (Kerala) and that IL7RA gene may play distinct roles in breast carcinogenesis.

In this record, I propose equipment helped information pressure as an apparatus to decrease the force utilization of processor-based frameworks. Propose another and proficient design for the pressure and decompression of information on the fly whose field of activity is the reserve to memory way. Uncompressed store lines are compacted before being revamped in principle memory and decompressed when reserve reloads are performed. To investigate two sorts of table-based pressure plans. The main, in view of the formation of disconnected information profiles, is especially appropriate for coordinated frameworks, where the consistency of the informational collection is normally higher than when all is said in done reason frameworks. The second arrangement we present is versatile, that is, it settles on choices about whether the information words ought to be packed by the information insights of the program being executed. This report depicts the execution subtleties of an equipment pressure and decompression unit to enhance power utilization in processor-based frameworks. In all cases, information pressure and decompression are performed on the fly in the reserve to memory way. Uncompressed store fines are compacted before they are reworked in principle memory and decompressed when reserve reloads happen. This record finishes and expands these past commitments by giving proof on the achievability of the proposed pressure structures by explicitly tending to equipment execution issues.

Postharvest deterioration is a major constraint to sweet potato production and understanding the interactions between pathogen and crop are necessary for the development of disease control practices. This study evaluated the severity of sweet potato postharvest fungi and relative rot susceptibility of two sweet potato cultivars (‘Oyorima’ and ‘Tupiaochi’) commonly grown in Ebonyi State. The healthy roots of the two sweet potato cultivars were subjected to artificial rot induction by seven fungi- Botryodiplodia theobromae, Fusarium solani, Aspergillus flavus, Aspergillus niger, Penicillium expansum, Rhizopus oryzae and Aspergillus awamori isolated and confirmed responsible for postharvest spoilage of sweet potato in Ebonyi State in a previous study. The postharvest fungi exhibited moderate to very high severity on the roots. Both local varieties of sweet potato (‘Oyorima’ and ‘Tupiaochi’) tested showed moderate to very high susceptible to postharvest fungal rot, with susceptibility varying with the pathogen and sweet potato cultivar. The Cultivar and pathogen interaction for cultivar ‘Tupiaochi’ was significantly (P=0.05) higher than that of ‘Oyorima’. There is therefore the need to regulate the storage environment for sweet potato roots since cultivar susceptibility to infection is influenced by the prevailing environmental conditions. Moreover, the use of improved sweet potato varieties, good storage facilities and adequate control measures need to be encouraged in order to reduce storage rot of sweet potato roots in Ebonyi State.

The advent of Power Electronic Devices capable of handling high currents, aided the design of Variable frequency drive (VFD) with Induction motor or inverter fed induction motor drive, which can be characterized by increased reliability and reduced cost. Though taken care highly, such type of drive system is prone for different kinds of faults. When fault occurs, the drive operation has to be stopped if it is designed for general fault detection. The cost of this schedule can be high, and this justifies the development of incipient fault diagnosis. Finding the fault immediately after it occurs is general method of diagnosing the fault. In this case the damage occurs to component or system. If the fault is detected just before it damages the component or system is much better than general fault diagnosis. i.e. diagnosing the fault at developing stage. It saves the system or component from damage. In turn the cost of damage is reduced. This is called the incipient fault detection. In this paper, general fault detection as well as incipient fault detection using the wavelets has been simulated using MATLAB/SIMULINK package. Simulation results are presented showing both the general fault detection and incipient fault detection using the Wavelets.

Most of the fossil fuel needs for India has been met for many years from other countries. India imports around 83% of fossil fuel as of 2017(1). When BJP (Bharatiya Janata Party) came into power in 2015, there was a clear mandate made to make India free from fossil fuel dependency. In 2018 India made headlines, when Petroleum Minister of India, Mr. Dharmendra Pradhan had announced that the country could serve their complete energy need for the next 300 years. The Ministry of Petroleum and Natural gas (MoP&NG), Government of India had conducted National Gas Hydrate Program Expedition 02(NGHP-02) from 03-03-2015 to 28-07-2015 in the eastern coast of India where they have discovered several gas hydrate accumulations. These data were backed by US Geological Survey which has reported that India’s gas hydrate reserve would just be in second place to United States which has the world’s largest gas hydrate reserve. Significant quantities of Natural gas hydrates (NGH) have been found in Kerala-Konkan Basin of the west coast, Krishna-Godavari basin of east coast, the Mahanadi basin, Cauvery basin.

This work gives an account of the Credit Score web service application and the primary purpose of a credit score is to help lenders assess individuals' risk of not repaying a loan. Credit scoring assessment, despite the fact that a moderately new idea in the Indian money related business sector, have increased wide acknowledgment among financial specialists. In the meantime, easy-going and narrative confirmation recommends that there are worries among speculators and controllers about the execution of rating offices in India. This paper looks at financial specialists' mindfulness, discernment, understanding level and use of Credit scoring assessment through a poll-based example overview covering individual and additionally institutional speculators. We find high dissemination of rating use among all class of financial specialists, however, there is a recognizable upsetting with the dependability of appraisals, inclination of ensuing minimizing and opportuneness of rating reconnaissance. The review additionally uncovers that the institutional financial specialists have predominant information and comprehension about evaluations than individual speculators. In this way, the review underlines the requirement for rating offices to take a shot at instructing the basic speculators to engender appropriate comprehension and use of Credit score..

Rice is the main commodity in Indonesia both for consumption and in terms of production. The increasing number of Indonesian population resulting in increased demand for rice is a problem that must be faced by the government to maintain national food stability. Currently Indonesian rice productivity data is available at the Central Statistics Agency and at the Ministry of Agriculture. The data is used in descriptive and diagnostic analysis. Descriptive analysis uses clustering, data visualization and entropy. The diagnostic process uses an entropy-based classification to see factors of production. The entropy function used is Shannon and Renyi Entropy. The results of using entropy in the description analysis show that production attributes have a higher level of uniformity. The results of entropy in the classification show that there are differences in the decision tree that results from Shannon and Renyi entropy. In this case Renyi Entropy has better accuracy..

In Malaysia, there have been continuous efforts to inculcate reading skills and thinking skills among students particularly university students. The ability to read effectively and think critically are essential skills for university students especially ESL learners. These skills are important learning outcomes among other fundamental academic skills in ensuring success in the university. Higher education requires students to use high level of reading skills and critical thinking skills as they have to read various reading materials which are mostly in English. Hence, it is vital to have an intervention in guiding and developing students as critical readers or thinkers. An action research was conducted to investigate the effectiveness of using the REAP technique as an intervention in an English Academic Communication course. The REAP technique stands for Read, Encode, Annotate and Ponder is a meta-cognitive strategy which teaches students to think deeply and guides students to ways of responding differently to a text by following the four-step strategy. This paper details the implementation of the REAP strategy and highlights the benefits of the strategy to students reading ability.

Among women community, the most dangerous disease is breast cancer. If it is detected in the early stage, the women will be rescued by giving proper treatment. The early detection is possible only by screening in regular interval. It will decrease the mortality rate. Mammography is a specialized medical imaging phenomenon that uses a low-dose x-ray system to see inside the breasts. It is called as mammogram, given support to the early detection and diagnosis of breast diseases in women. In this paper, an automated system is proposed to classify the breast tissues as normal or benign or malignant. Artifacts in the images are removed using Gaussian Mixture Model. Contrast-Limited Adaptive Histogram Equalization (CLAHE) algorithm is used to improve the appearance of the image. The features of the region of mammogram are extracted using hybrid feature extraction which includes Gray Level Co-occurrence Matrix (GLCM), texture and gradient. The features such as contrast, correlation, energy, homogeneity, global mean, uniformity, entropy and skewness are the best features that guarantee the improvement of classification with less feature dimension. K-Means clustering based segmentation is performed to identify the abnormality in the mammogram. The MIAS database images are considered for the evaluation. The feed forward Neural Network classifier is used for classification. Based on the classifier, the given input image is classified as normal or benign or malignant image. From the results, it shows that the proposed breast cancer identification method offers high accuracy and low complexity than the all other existing method.

The emergence of reform movements in the Nineteenth Century marks the beginning of a New Era in the Indian History. Western Education and Industrial Revolution brought about a new awakening in the midst of Indian Intellectuals. The enlightened and educated Indians developed the consciousness about the Glory of Indian Culture and realized that the existing social evils such as Purdha System, Untouchability, Ban on Widow Remarriage, Infanticide, and Devadasi System and a host of other evil practices were leading to human degradation. Under such circumstances, various social and religious reformers rose to meet the challenge of the times. Raja Ram Mohan Roy, regarded as the Father of Indian Renaissance, is the forerunner of all reformers in the galaxy of such social reformers and Dr.Muthulakshmi Reddi is considered the first Woman social reformer in South India.

Twitter and other microblogging platforms are reportedly being used for propagating spams and other malicious content, which stand contrary to the vision of these platforms. This situation raises several ethical challenges in terms of deceiving people with pseudo information. Many a time, users of microblogging sites are held responsible for spreading spiteful information on social media, and they remain unknown in most of the cases. Tweet content may contain either genuine information or uncredible content. The uncredible content contains an abusive or absurd language for any caste, culture, religion or political party. This content needs to be filtered out so that it does not disturb the tranquility of nation in the long run. Therefore, filtering such content from Online Social Networks (OSNs) is the utmost requirement, and so, needs to be addressed. Earlier studies have focused on mainly feature-set belonging to content-based, topic-based and network-based categories. However, the potential of emotion-based features still remains to be explored in the domain. In this paper, IBM Watson and Meaning Cloud platforms have been used for evaluating emotions, sentiment and polarity scores in order to develop a classification model that will filter out all the uncredible content from the OSNs like Twitter. Initially, 35K tweets and associated features provided by Twitter were crawled. These tweets were further preprocessed and forwarded to six human experts for annotating it on a five-pointer credible class scores. The Multilayer perceptron, Naive Bayes, Random Forest and Support Vector Machine algorithms were used for developing a machine learning classification model for categorizing tweets into one of the given credibility classes. The acceptable level of accuracy, precision, recall, and f1 score is observed for all given credibility classes.

The theory of authority is at the heart of the sociology of Max Weber where he focusses on the historical shifts in the exercise of power. The third type of authority explained by Weber is the theory of charismatic authority where he talks about the charismatic powers of different personalities like prophets, heroes in wars, religious leaders etc; by dint of which they are considered superior to the ordinary people. This paper attempts to experiment this celebrated theory in the life and legacy of Sankardeva, a 15th century polymath who founded the vaishnavism in Assam and propounded a reformed version of Hinduism. His eternal charisma on the Assamese society in many ways corresponds to the theory of Weber. The notion of the recognition of validity of charisma, the concept of felt duty, the emancipator and revolutionary spirit of charisma and repudiation of the past- can be very easily attributed to the charismatic personality of Sankardeva. Weber also talks about the routinization of charismatic personality i.e. the demands placed on the charismatic personality while settling the crisis of succession, validation of the positions of authority, social status and the economic priviledges of the subjects, and the demand of giving it an administrative apparatus; which clearly corresponds to the routinization of charisma of Sankardeva after his death in the form of shifting of the authority to his favourite disciple Madhavdeva and in increasing bureaucratization of the Sattra institutes. This culminates into traditionalization of the charismatic authority and emergence of a feudal structure within the sattras which is a prediction of Weber in his theory. Hence, this paper attempts a theoretical study of the charismatic authority of Sankardeva, its routinization and transformation into a traditional authority at last.

The number of Arab journalists in the UK will be estimated at 1,000 according to national expectations. This should mean a slight decline in 2015. Scattering the centrality of the press in London and the southeast, and in urban education plans, in which ethnic minorities live in large numbers, suggests that ethnic minorities speak a lot in the press. Ladies, progressively established people with medical problems or disabilities leading to childbirth work, and the self-employed should work with little support. The key data in this report will depend on the data which will be obtained from a publicly available online awareness audit. For British-Arab journalists. There is no actual positioning of the dynamic structure in the different action groups. The key data in this report is based on data collected through online audits and generally available to British-Arab journalists. The research will be completed before installation with press articles and corrections. As a result, there is no acceptable assessment framework for the 2015 outcome as there is no complete summary of the rapporteurs. These quick strategies have been enhanced by extraordinary activities to encourage Arab journalists to complete the project. Changes in the coding structure used in the definitions identified by the word imply that the meaning of persons who are coordinated as Arab journalists is described by a more notable and unbreakable character.

Current vehicle driving help systems uses range of technologies like measuring device, image process, RFID, IR, computer vision etc. These technologies use communication system in conjunction with sensors, desegregation all of those technologies into one system is often a pricey, larger in size and complex solution. But in these systems most of the days sensors output is plagued by dangerous weather/climate, dangerous light-weight and consumes high power and wishes regular maintenance. We came up with an answer by providing the knowledge within the vehicle so as to cut back the accidents and difficulties in driving. The solution seeks to alert and inform the motive force whenever the vehicle approaches a predetermined waypoint on the road. Here we have a tendency to think of introducing value effective, low hopped-up secured technology. Here communication and sensing is achieved by single module that is of cheap, low-power, reliable, less sensitive to climatically changes. Easy to implement, easy to install, smaller in size. It employs mesh configuration, permitting it give high dependableness and an affordable vary. This paper concentrates on how these daunting accidents which has great toll on valuable lives can be curtailed. In India; we have a tendency to don’t have an advanced system that might facilitate to regulate the accidents. So researchers got a taken AN initiative to regulate the dreadful accidents, that is at soaring rates at the present by means that of this paper.

Now days recognizing the face accurately is becoming more challenging and essential task in the biometric authentication. Use of minimum facial features is important to reduce the complexity of designing the face recognition system. The performance of any emotion recognition system is mostly dependent on efficient design of face recognition system. Recently in the direction of emotion recognition a lot of the work is carried out. It is suggested by some researchers that use of only facial features or speech features are not sufficient to design emotion recognition system. Here in this paper the approach to extract the facial and speech features to recognize the emotion is proposed. Survey suggests that, combining both the features (facial features and speech features) to recognize the emotion improves the emotion state recognition accuracy. Proposed method uses extraction of facial features in both the directions (row and column) using maximum margin criteria with Modified Linear Discriminant Analysis (MLDA). The respective speech data signals are extracted using Mel-Frequency Cepstral Coefficients (MFCC) of the speech. The resultant features (facial features and speech features) are further integrated to construct an informative feature library. The constructed feature library provides a base for recognizing the emotions using advanced regression model, called as Incomplete Sparse Least Square Regression (ISLSR). After experimentation, the proposed approach is found to provide improved recognition accuracy of emotions than existing approaches.

In a Walkability Survey in Asian Cities, Jakarta occupies the bottom four. Having been its low level of walkability, Jakarta in implementing the sustainable city concept arranges the walkable pedestrian ways. As the center of commercial activities, Jakarta needs the walkability measurement for commercial corridor. This research aim is to identify the level of walkability in commercial corridors. The unit of analysis is a commercial corridor. Field observation and questionnaire survey were used as the methods. Field observation is to identify the condition of pedestrian facilities, pedestrian flows, and land use along the left and right sides of the corridor. There were three variables of the condition of the corridor’s sidewalk associated with the level of pedestrian’s comfort, that were safety, amenity, and accessibility. These three variables are measured by several indicators measured using a Likert scale. The number of respondents was 96. To test the data’s reliability and validity used a reliability test and bivariate correlation test. Meanwhile, to measure the significance of each variable in each corridor, the k-independent samples were used. The results showed that the level of walkability of the sidewalk in the Sudirman corridor was high, while in Dr. Satrio and Casablanca corridors were a moderate level. This difference is due to the accessibility indicators. In Sudirman corridor meet the integrated public transportation as well as the absence of interference from street vendors and motorized parking. Therefore, accessibility of pedestrian way is the determining factor for the level of walkability in commercial corridors.

Furniture is one of the largest industrial sectors in Indonesia, Furniture is also one of the largest export commodities in Indonesia. At present the demand for furniture in Indonesia can still be met by domestic furniture production while the rest is controlled by imported products and growing rapidly. The lack of regulatory support, for example such as the difficulty of export permits, the difficulty of obtaining raw materials, high loan interest rates and education about the production and distribution process of furniture makes the furniture industry in Indonesia even worse. As a result today many furniture industries are experiencing a decline due to the lack of furniture entrepreneurs because they do not understand how to market furniture, There are still many furniture entrepreneurs who do not know choosing good wood and many do not know how to start a furniture business. The purpose of this research is to get a knowledge management system design and expert system that can be used by novice furniture entrepreneurs, furniture manufacturers, furniture distributors and furniture consumers. The method used is for KMS using the Becerra-Fernandez development framework, Expert Systems using the Forward Chaining method, System development using SDLC, System design using DFD, ERD and applications are implemented using the Drupal Framework.

Cementing is the most important part of well construction and requires effective compatibility with nitrogen (N2) additives. Some of the challenges associated with this process are high temperatures, brine corrosion, and CO2 gas. The cementing process in geothermal wells is similar to oil and gas with high displacement efficiency to ensure adequate processing during low velocity. This study, therefore, aims to determine the function of foam cement using nitrogen to improve zonal isolation. The low use of variable density and relatively high strength of the foamed cement help operators to achieve long-term hydraulic bonds and zonal isolation by preventing hydrostatic pressure damage. In Indonesia, geothermal wells are developed with the fracture and low temperature gradients using lightweight foamed cement. This ensures job success, proper engineering, and control.. The results foam cementing are to establish good bonds and zonal isolation, the engineering process allows operators to adjust slurry density during cementing as needed. It is first mixed then pumped into a hole, and stabilized to create foam. This study concludes foam pumping has the ability to improve zonal isolation in oil and gas drilling wells.

The aim of study is to provide an overview of reform ideas on land registration publication system in order to achieve legal certainty in Indonesia. Legal certainty of land rights is an essential requirement for landowers and it will be realized if there is no doubt and worries of land ownership. However, in fact a certificate of land rights could be a legal case. The research method uses normative legal research, descriptive, and data analyzed qualitatively. One of the root causes of land conflicts is the publication system on land registration in Indonesia. There are two different publication systems: registration of deeds, which always uses a negative publication system, and registration of titles, which always uses a positive publication system. The result research in Indonesian Land Law is different from the law applicable in most other countries regarding publication system. Indonesian Laws follow registration of titles, and a negative tends to positive publication system. This is the root cause of many legal conflicts in Indonesia. I argue that in the future, Indonesia government has to change its land registration from negative but tends to positive publication system to positive publication system. Moreover, along with this transformation, an assurance fund should be established to compensate owners of registered rights who suffer from losses due the omissions or errors in the land registration system.

Aging results in cognitive decline in memory and intelligence of the elderly, but this may be delayed or maintained by brain exercises. Studies on increasing cognitive functioning, e.g. by brain gym and physical exercise did not clearly demonstrate an association of brain gym and physical activity with cognitive functioning. Therefore the present study aimed to find any relationship between brain gym and cognitive functioning in postmenopausal women. This analytical study was conducted for three months on healthy postmenopausal women aged 60 years and older at the Mampang Public Health Center in South Jakarta. Excluded were patients with psychosis, neurological abnormalities, patients on antidepressant or antipsychotic medications, patients with malignancies or diabetes mellitus, or subjects not completing the study. The selected subjects underwent the MoCA-INA and walking tests. Subjects passing both tests were assigned to the brain gym intervention group and the others to the control group without brain gym. The intervention group performed brain gym three times weekly for 3 months, after which both groups underwent a repeat MoCA-INA test. Mean age of control (n=12) and intervention groups (n=14) was 64.58 ±3.42 years and 64.86 ± 4.94 years, respectively. Baseline mean MoCA-Ina scores in control and intervention groups were 19.07 ± 2.12 and 20.50 ±1.56, respectively (p=0.067). After brain gym for 3 months, mean MoCA-INA scores in control and intervention groups were 22.33 ± 2.05 and 20.42 ± 1.69, respectively (p= 0.016). Cognitive functioning of postmenopausal women increased after performing brain gym. Postmenopausal women are recommended to perform brain gym to prevent or retard reduction in cognitive functioning.

Naturally fractured reservoir (NFR) especially in granitic basement in Sumatra is not a new issue for research. Generally in NFR modeling, fracture density of rocks in a damage zone is the most significant factor that influence fracture porosity and fracture permeability. The aim of the study is to determining micro fracture in the granitic rocks and proofing that quartz and k-feldspar minerals has significant influence for fracture density. Area of the study at Muaro Silokek, South Sumatra revealed a very heterogeneous granitic rocks outcrop and have high fracture density. At previous study conclude those area is representative as an analog NFR, especially granitic basement reservoir in Sumatra. The main fault which affect fracture orientation was right lateral strike slip faults with NW – SE orientation represented as riedel shears which is Takung Fault trend. The study was conducted using 12 data of thin section granitic oriented sample for micro fracture analysis. The result of the study shows there are three types of granitic rocks namely syeno granite, alkali feldspar granite, and monzo granite. Micro fracture characterization shows NE – SW, NNW – SSE, ENE – WSW fracture orientation. Type of micro fracture dominantly of transgranular micro fracture which means it has high fracture connectivity and paralel to high permeability. Fault zone classification shows that damage zone is at 6.5 m around faults. This fracture characterization on samples in the damage zone shows each type of granite has a different response to the micro fracture density, so it have significant implication for NFR.

Recently, vernacular architecture has become a source of inspiration to create innovative building designs by utilizing the latest technology. Proportion systems of the vernacular house are one of the basic principles that can be elaborated for module innovation in the industrialization era. The universal standardization and generational change are part of the reasons why vernacular architectural concepts are rarely considered again. Such conditions are indicators that weaken the understanding of vernacular philosophical concepts and spirit. Therefore, the enlightenment of the concept becomes important especially concerning its nature to revive the thinking of the current generation that physical appearance has a unique spirit and cultural content. This paper aims to formulate a conceptual model of proportion systems in vernacular architecture through precedent studies. It was formulated inductive-qualitatively by referring to the theoretical building of Ihalauw [1] and the research design of Creswell [2]. Information units obtained from the precedent vernacular architecture research results in Indonesia combined with the cases from other countries that were selected randomly. Each selected information unit is linked inductively to produce theme categorization and each theme is integrated through logical relationships to produce a conceptual formulation diagram. At the end of writing, the formulated conceptual model is compared with others as the form of theoretical dialogue. The result of the study affirms that the proportion system in vernacular architecture is related to the expression of human efforts in aligning themselves (microcosm) with God/ancestor (macrocosm). The manifestation of these expressions is used to mark sacred-profane values and social ethics in addition to being physically used to modify the local climate and to produce forms of beauty.

Solid waste as the organic and inorganic waste materials from sources have become the real issue in big cities or villages including agricultural waste. This study aims to determine the effect of organic waste characteristics and worm density in the vermicomposting process. To achieve these objectives an analysis of chemical and physical parameters is carried out. The method of this research are using two type of earthworm that is Eudrilus eugeniae (EE), Lumbricus rubellus (LR) to be varied in several composition of cassava peels, vegetable waste and cow manure. The variations consist of 1.5kg/m2, 2kg/m2, and 2.5kg/m2 for both type of earthworm. Parameters to be measured are chemical (pH, temperature and humidity) and physical (waste weight). All physical and chemical parameters are still in the range determined by experts, the pH parameters are in the range 7-8, the temperature parameter is in the range of 21-29°C, and the humidity parameter is in the range of 36-71%. In this study, environmental conditions greatly affect the vermicomposting process, namely the pH value of 7.00-8.00 and the temperature of 26.5-28OC is still in ideal conditions for worm life, while the humidity of 60% -80% does not meet the ideal conditions for worms because it is too moist caused by raw materials used are green vegetables that have high water content. Density variations in each waste variation affect the amount of waste reduction both in EE and LR media. The highest waste reduction for 1.5 kg/m2 of Eudrilus eugeniae in M4D1 variation (30% cow manure and 70% cassava peels) by 56% waste reduction. Meanwhile for 2.5 kg/m2 Lumbricus rubellus in the D3M4 and D4M4 variation (50% cow manure and 50% vegetables; 30% cow manure 70% of vegetables) can reduce by 63%.

In this research, the annealing temperature was varied to determine the appropriate template sequence. The amplification process used the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) method in the Primary template, to separate the double DNA into a single chain. Furthermore, the cycling duration were compared with the pGEM_Standard. In this research, the process was heated for some time, and the temperature decreased to obtain an appropriate result. Bigdye-pGEM reagents were used to stick the separated molds to become single chains. Also, a primer pair with a large melting temperature difference tends to cause a reduction in the amplification process. The primary sequencing of M13 at 500C produced a well-readable amplicon on the observed electropherogram using ABI Prism 310 sequencer. The results shows that the sequencing test with the addition of bigdye reagent volume (without buffer) at 1x concentration and 25 times cycling duration formed high and clear peaks around 600bp. Shorter sequences occurred at lower concentrations, with the reagent used to determine the exact annealing temperature and how optimal the reagent brings up the sequence length that appears on the electropherogram.

Posts in the forums are dispersed in database where determining the congruence among the text posts in web forums is cumbersome task. Congruence is relevant property while text clustering and text classification. Traditionally the documents were searched with the collation of keywords or set of terms from the posts. Proposed system posts are contemplated as corpus of words where each entity in corpus has some individual weightage where terms and words are also found in another corpuses as well. To fulfill the objective with common goal there should be some relatedness among the corpus of different posts in different or same forum which provides the similar motive the user needed to deliver. Congruence is calculated by applying a score to common terms calculated in preprocessing. Semantic relatedness score of corpus differs for every corpus depending on the relatedness in corpuses. Posts are divided into segments at particular instances. Of these segments the corpuses are created and text features are extracted and monitored by identifying congruence of keywords. The common terms extracted are evaluated using process by combination of different Semantic Textual algorithms. After calculating the similarity most identical posts are displayed to user on threshold basis.

Electromyography (EMG) is a technique used to acquire electrical activity from muscles called electromyogram (EMG). EMG signals can be used to detect either abnormalities or movements in muscles. This muscle movement can be used to control a prosthetic finger. Previous research focused on how to develop a high-functional prosthetic fingers system. This initial system due to many actuators needed a high-performance processor. The main problem was on the complicated mechanism, leading to the price of prosthetic fingers system became expensive, heavy, and difficult to maintain. In this research, we developed a low-cost prototype of a prosthetic finger that works based on EMG signals produced by human arm muscles. The EMG signal obtained was processed by the signal processing to move the servo motor. An appropriate response was received between the movement of the hand and the prosthetic finger. The proposed prosthetic finger system was managed to recognize the type of motion by 100%. The result showed that the prosthetic finger could follow the movements of the hand precisely.

The phytochemical and agronomical features of 15 tomato inbred lines were studied for two successive years under local environmental conditions of Oman. The objectives of this experiment were to; (1) determine the correlation between the variables to explain variation among tomato inbred lines, (2) estimate the relationship and divergence among tomato inbred lines using principal component analysis (PCA) and cluster analysis. The experiments were conducted in randomized complete block design with three replications in Tawoos Agricultural farm in Barka in 2013- 2014. Data collected were 1) Agronomical data: fruit yield, marketable fruit yield, single fruit weight, fruit number and 2) Phytochemical data: PH, TSS, TA and Color. In both years 2013 and 2014, the first three components of PCA showed 76.3 and 77.5% respectively, of the total variation among traits. Agronomical data contributed more in total variation than phytochemical data among different tomato inbred lines. The resulting dendrogram from cluster analysis using ward method revealed 3 groups. The first and second groups show close relationship among inbred lines while the third group with two lines (3022E and GS 12) showed no similarity with other two groups. In 2014, 3125F-19 with the highest fruit size (140 g) grouped alone . This method of grouping inbred lines was completely consistent with the results of principal component analysis. In general, these inbred lines performed well and produced good fruit yield.

This study empirically examines the relationship among GDP, import and export by investigating the validity of the export-led growth hypothesis in India. A quarterly data that spanned from 1996.Q2 to 2019Q2 has been employed for the analysis of the study. The stochastic properties of the series checked through Philips and Perron (1988), finds all the three series to be stationary at first difference, and this has further been examined through Perron (1997), which confirms the presence of a unit-root with structural breaks in the crash, growth, and crash-growth models at different dates. A Johansen test of co-integration reveals the presence of two co-integrating relations, and the short-run dynamics coefficient reveals that 50 percent of the disequilibrium in the system is being corrected every quarter. The study further finds the evidence of a long-run causality between export and GDP, although not in the short run. Thus, the study wrapped up by lending support for the validity of the export-led growth hypothesis to the Indian economy.

This study aimed to elucidate the geochemical behavior of Rare Earth Elements (REE) to conceive their concentration within secondary REE-bearing minerals. The tin belt granitoids which existed along the Malaysia Peninsula and Western Indonesia were produced by subduction of large Tethyan oceans, followed by post-collisional thickening of the continental crust. With regards to the tectonic origin, granitoids in the Bukit Tinggi, Pahang State, Malaysia as well as Bangka island, Indonesia are classified under crustal-derived granitoid and yield considerable potentials of REE. Moreover, in a tropical climate, tense weathering process possibly dispersed the REE to the weathered products of granitoid, laterite and placer deposits. The methodology used in this research includes the analysis of major and trace elements through the use of X-Ray Fluorescence added by petrography analysis. The result showed similar chemical characteristics on ionic- radii with different ionic- charge of Light- and Heavy-REE enabled them to substitute the major elements and enter the crystal lattice. The weathering process has also contributed to destroying the ionic bonds of the host minerals. Moreover, the low mobility of these elements engenders low dispersion only in the nearby parent rocks. Summarily, in weathered granitoid and bauxite laterite, REE accumulation occupies the saprolith containing clay mineral and has the capability to concentrate the elements through ionic-absorption. In placer deposits, REE remained stable in resistant minerals of monazite, xenotime, and zircon since the Light- REE being compatible with major elements of Ti, Zr and coexist with cassiterite or tin.

Gastroparesis is a condition that affects the normal motility of muscle in the stomach and is commonly called as paralysis of stomach. Electrogastrography is the technique for measuring electrical activity of the stomach. The Electrogastrography is also used to measure the gastric mobility and various stomach disorders like tachy-gastria, brady-gastria, dyspepsia, peptic ulcer, gastric tumor etc. Electrogastro-gram is the graphical representation of the Electrogastrography. The Electrogastrography procedure is recommended by the physician to diagnose the dis orders in the stomach. Electrogastrography procedure is taken generally under two conditions: Fasting condition and post prandial condition. This procedure is followed strictly to measure the gastric activity and gastric emptying test. The food is propelled into the stomach and the pacemaker of the stomach fails to contract the muscles of stomach that leads to gastroparesis condition. The diabetic patients often get into the gastroparesis condition. This remains as a major factor; stomach motility is slowed down. In this paper, data acquisition system for acquiring multichannel electrogastrogram is developed and the gastric signal is acquired and analysed using MATLAB. Through the spectral analysis of gastric slow-wave, the gastroparesis condition is diagnosed. The MEGG-Multichannel Channel Electrogastrogram signal is acquired in two states: Fasting state and Postprandial state.

The evolution of semi-conductor switches has resulted in their increased use in electrical and electronic devices in recent trends. The growing use of thyristor-based rectifiers has caused the power grid to face severe harmonic problems. In power systems, voltage unbalance occurs often. The primary source is uneven distribution of single-phase loads throughout all phases. If a three-phase fully controlled rectifier is connected with an unbalanced grid it results in voltage ripple. In this project the analysis of three phase rectifier with resistive load is done. Simulation is done in MATLAB with various voltage imbalances and the ripple factor is found. The hardware analysis is also done with voltage unbalance and the output ripple factor is analyzed. The analysis shows that the unbalance in the input voltage increases the switching losses and voltage ripple. This influences the switch conductive intervals and further distorts the input current waveform.

Cervical cancer is the major cause of death of women in Indonesia after breast cancer. It is believed that the integration of Human Papilloma Virus plays a critical role in the development of cervical cancer. A recent study discovered "hot spots" contained candidate genes that are linked to the integration of DNA HPV to the host's genome. This preliminary study aims to investigate the expression of these genes in HPV-uninfected cervical cells. Most of the genes were expressed in HPV-uninfected cervical cells and their expression levels were significantly different from each other qualitatively and quantitatively, suggesting that these genes might have an important role in maintaining a normal function of cervical cells. Perturbation in the expression level of these genes might be linked to the developing of pathological conditions, such as cervical cancer.

Diabetic retinopathy (DR) – one of the most common reasons for blindness in modern days- is a visual disorder. DR is caused due to long-standing untreated diabetics, which in turn damage the retina cells. It takes place when pancreas cannot produce insulin sufficiently or body can’t utilize the produced insulin effectively. Early identification and proper treatment of DR can lower the loss of sight of patients. Diagnosis of DR is a vigorous process that include large amount of clinical study, which involves large amount of time, money and resources. The number of DR affected patients is much greater than the number of practitioners. So manual clinical diagnosis or screening takes considerable amount of time. Therefore, in order to keep away from such difficulty, follow-up screening is done regularly and automatic DR detection and severity classification are essential.

The cement company sets a parameter standard for the level of limestone content to optimize the quality control used in cement production. The parameter used is Lime Saturation Factor (LSF) which represents the ratio of CaO by Al2O3, Fe2O3, and SiO2. Blending of raw materials will never be excellent and there are perpetually regions inside the clinker where the LSF locally is slightly below, or slightly above, the general target of clinker creating. For this reason, it is necessary to find a formula for determining the LSF value, which in this study uses the geostatistical method. The aim of this study is as an effort to consider, improve and evaluate to get an area with LSF value by the clinker making process. Primary data, which consists of a total of 35 boreholes, was collected through sampling, cutting, and drilling, with geostatistical methods used to produce unbiased data based on each region. After analyzing the goodness of fitting test using the Chi-Square, the distribution of LSF in quarry C was determined as an exponential with an outlier from the boxplot analysis. The conclusion of this study, the geostatistical method can be used to determine areas with LSF values, based on the results of the range variogram. The variogram model was obtained with a Nugget Effect of 100, Sill of 45000, and a 250 meters Range with a search direction of 1350 and a 12.55% error.

It is motivated by several factors including brand anthropomorphism, engagement, skepticism, and prestige, distinctiveness, and self-similarity. Brand anthropomorphism as a variation of cognitive processes that represent consumers' preferences towards brands, so brands are considered in accordance with human traits, both based on overall actions and regard them as objects with the motivation and intentions of consumers. The purpose of this study therefore is to test and analyze factors influencing consumer brand identification. The conceptual model of testing involves products marketed offline and online. The results show there is a very significant difference between these two marketing aspects. Anthropomorphism affects consumer-brand identification, though only for products sold online. So the company can respond to intense competition, by choosing the right business strategy to gain market share.

Carotid artery is the main blood source for brain, and abnormality of its thickness is associated with cognitive impairment. While Indonesia is one of the countries with largest dementia population, there are only few studies of Indonesian cognitive-impaired population. We attempted to correlate Indonesian carotid artery thickness profile with cognitive function. We enrolled 79 subjects from community setting; Carotid Intima Media Thickness (CIMT) was measured by carotid ultrasonography, while memory function is measured by Rey-Osterrieth Auditory Verbal Learning Test (RAVLT) and Rey-Osterrieth Complex Figure Test (ROCFT). CIMT was 0.81 ± 0.22 cm for left and 0.81 ± 0.22 cm for right carotid artery. There was significant correlation between CIMT and verbal memory function (r of thinnest CIMT = -0.29). In conclusion, thicker CIMT correlated with worse verbal recall memory.

Corcyra cephalonica (Stainton) (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae) is a factitious host extensively used for rearing egg parasitoids. The present study attempt to investigate mid-gut bacteria present in larva of Corcyra cephalonica (C. cephalonica). The mid-gut bacteria were collected from the C. cephalonica fed on eight different grains were identified and characterized by 16S rDNA sequence based culture dependent method. The results revealed that, 16 bacterial species where presented in mid-gut of C. cephalonica larva which are belonging to 11 bacterial genera included in three phyla namely Firmicutes, Proteobacteria and Actinobacteria. Among the three phyla Firmicutes was the most dominant phylum with a record of 7 bacterial species, followed by Proteobacteria with 5 species and Actinobacteria with 4 species. Phylum Firmicutes, was dominated by members of Class Bacilli. The genus Staphylococcus was the largest genus represented by 4 species namely Staphylococcus sp., S. saprophyticus, Staphylococcus pasteuri and Staphylococcus warneri and also the most prevalent genus which was recorded in the mid-gut of C. cephalonica fed on 4 grains. No single bacterium was found in all the mid-gut samples. This record of varied mid-gut bacterial composition could be attributed to the feeding behaviour/pattern of the larvae and further intensive large scale research like extensive sampling and deep-sequencing are needed to ascertain it.

To explore the social and political context in which culture apparent it to considerate the culture in its entire complex forms. The aim of this study is to analyze the representation of Western culture and the interaction of nature and machine in Denis Johnson’s novella Train Dream (2011). Train Dreams is a gorgeous novella about the cowboy culture inside the West that is instructed through the eyes of Grainier who is unsure on himself. In this novella, the historical timing as a period marked through a brutal exchange within the West. Trains are a vital topic in the course of Western writing for the reason that they constitute the calming of the desert and the fire is an apparent symbol for industrialization. The fireplace stirred in to destroy Grainier’s home and his family, the industry came to spoil nature and shortly after cowboy lifestyle. The string of occasions is notably emblematic for Grainier and West. The contest and bereavement of the central character constitutes the vanishing and ultimate fatality of the West and, in conjunction by means of it, cowboy way of life. The character’s separation both internally and externally display the lonesome disconnect from technology of skilled personality with the arrival of industrialization. Those men were born in a conversion of periods, between the cowboy West and industrialization. At last, the West passed away in the flames and Grainier is alive in a train nightmarish.

The present-day industries require more complex products for multi engineering domains. Scientists and researchers are continuously searching for new methods for making products with low density, high strength, and high stiffness to weight ratio, excellent durability and design flexibility. The GFRP composites is an unique material which satisfies all the pre-requisites of the fields such as aircraft, automotive, marine and other industries that need many structural components. There are several manufacturing techniques employed to make GFRP composites. This project investigates the mechanical behavior of GFRP composites using Vacuum Assisted Resin Transfer Molding and Hand Laying Technique. This method is considers as simple manufacturing method, because during the HLU process, the mechanical properties and dimensional stability are poor and hazardous air pollutants may be emitted. The VARTM is becoming more popular due to its low hazardous emissions and high mechanical properties and dimensional stability. VARTM-WRM 45 degree has 4.25% high tensile strength, 7% high impact strength compared to HLU-WRM 45 degree. VARTM-CSM 0 degree has 7.18% high tensile strength, 6.9% high impact strength compared to HLU-CSM 0 degree.

In Mobile Adhoc Networks (MANETs), one of the most challenging tasks is detecting and isolating the wormhole attacks/links through the network during data transmission. To tackle this challenge, a Fuzzy Logic and AIS-ISWAD (FLAIS-ISWAD) technique has been proposed in which all the network parameters were given to the FL to construct the high-performance stable routes and then AIS was performed to isolate the wormhole links in MANETs. Conversely, this technique was performed only on the homogeneous networks whereas the data transmission rate was constant. Therefore, this article focuses on increasing the detection accuracy in the heterogeneous networks by using variable transmission data rates. To achieve this, a Multirate FLAIS-ISWAD (MFLAIS-ISWAD) technique is proposed to detect the wormhole links in multirate 802.11 wireless channel. In this technique, each node considers the per-hop baseband rate of transmission and computes all the parameters. Also, the Round Trip Time (RTT), processing delay, queuing delay and channel access delays are computed along with all other system parameters used by the FLAIS-ISWAD technique for wormhole attack detection and mitigation process. Finally, the simulation results show the performance efficiency of the MFLAIS-ISWAD technique compared to the FLAIS-ISWAD in terms of throughput, End-to-End Delay (E2E-D), jitter, Packet Delivery Ratio (PDR), Packet Loss Ratio (PLR) and Detection Ratio (DR).

Democratic transition in Egypt has been discussed in worldwide literature. What was initially a promise of change in the norms of the theocratic state has finally gone back to the old days of dictatorial rule. A brief period of democratic rule was the byproduct of the 2012 free and fair elections. The successful government of the conservative political organization Muslim Brotherhood struggled to cope up with the contemporary socio-economic demands of a nation state. Morsi tried to strengthen his position by containing the powers of judiciary, but this move back fired. Massive protests engulfed Cairo and the inevitable happened. General Sisi stepped in and started another dictatorial rule. Egyptian politics has started allowing other parties and candidates to contest the presidential elections, but the levels of rigging are so high that a genuine participant ends up withdrawing his candidature leaving the field open to the whim of the dictators. The democratic norms of Egypt reflect the culture of an Arab state. Democracy takes time to flourish as its roots gradually transcend deep into the society. Egypt must abide by the rules of human rights including the rights to gather and free speech.

Natural dyeing is one of the indigenous pieces of knowledge that has been explored on its potential since prehistoric decade. The process and materials used revolves nature-friendly essential, which are safe to the environment in comparison to the chemical dyeing materials. Currently, the Adonidia Merillii or also known as betel nut tree, is only used as an ornamental tree such as in landscaping. However, it has potentials of being more than an ornament and can be utilized as dyes for local textile industries. Thus, this study focused on extracting dye from young Adonidia Merillii fruits husk. Traditional boiling method was applied to extract the natural colours from the fruits. Colour testing was conducted on four (4) types of fabrics which were rayon, Crepe de Chine (CDC), China Cotton and jacquard by using post-mordanting treatment. The mordants used were aqueous lime water, alum, and ashes. The colour on the textile samples was tested and evaluated via colour fastness properties. The tests conducted include exposing textile samples to artificial light, washing, rubbing, water and perspiration. Adonidia Merillii fruits husk have given hues of brown colour staining on the textiles, but the colour changed after the test, surprisingly on the artificial light exposure. The bright colour of the initial samples appeared to be less bright than those exposed to artificial light. The brightness of the samples was determined using blue scale grading. The findings from this experimental study may contribute to the palette colour of natural dyeing on textile and extended future research about the brightness change would be significant for the Malaysia local textile industries.

The contamination of water and its effect on human beings and agricultural crops forced us to analyze the different parameters of quality of water. For this we opted different techniques which are related to check the quality of water like Wrinkler’s method, EDTA process, pH meter, etc. Physicochemical attributes of water samples of Ganges from Kanpur city are investigated. Water samples were collected from different localities of Kanpur and its adjacent areas during the month of April and May, 2010. Correlation among different attributes viz pH, temperature, turbidity, total hardness (TH), iron, total alkalinity (TA), dissolved oxygen (DO) and suspended solids (SS) to establish the significance of quality parameters of water was performed. It was observed that most of the attributes are within the limits recommended by world health organization (WHO) except turbidity.

Unlike previous studies, this study not only captured the degree of the links of FDI, economic growth and POV but also inspected the relationship between overall FDI in agriculture (FDIA) with Agriculture Growth (AG) and Poverty(POV) specifically. This study was also novel in employing a two-step estimation method using a dynamic GMM estimator to explore the role of AG and POV to aiding FDIA, instead of using only a static panel data estimator. The findings show that the effectiveness of FDIA in promoting AG and reducing POV is debatable. The results merely demonstrate that the FDIA in high income OIC economies needs to be modified further to reduce POV by planning an effective FDIA system through policymaking and attracting more foreign investors. AG and Market size agriculture (MSA) were the factors that had the most influence on FDIA, especially in the OIC low income OIC economies. In contrast, the negative and significant coefficients were POV and unemployment rate (UR). Lastly, the other independent agriculture sector variables, such as MSA, trade openness (TOA) and human capital agriculture (HCA), were all significant and were confirmed as determinants of FDIA in all of the low income OIC countries.

Peanuts are nutrient-rich legumes, such as fats, proteins, vitamins, and minerals, which are beneficial to the body. However, during storage, these commodities are easily damaged physically, chemically, and microbiologically. Physical damage can be caused by dark discoloration and a decrease in peanut hardness during storage. Increased rates of respiration, off-flavor, and rancidity are chemical changes that cause a decline in the quality of peanuts. While microbiological damage is caused by the growth of Aspergillus flavus molds on peanuts capable of producing aflatoxin B1. This toxin is classified as hazardous and carcinogenic. Pre-storage treatment, storage conditions, and the use of packaging types can be used to maintain the quality so that the causes of the damage can be minimized. Physical, chemical, and microbiological damage may be interrelated, leading to an acceleration of the decline in the quality of the commodity resulting in lower sales values.

Android based mobile phones are widely used by variety of users the security of these phones is of major concern and is a topic of research from the beginning. The security of Android phone is based on the permission based security model which requires that any third party application must get the permission before using a resource. This model is broadly criticized for its complexity, coarse-grained access to resources and inappropriate authorization of permissions by application developers, advertisers and end users. This paper analyses the issues with current security model and propose a trust based portable security model for Android based devices. The proposed model provides effective security with ease. The proposed model does not require user intervention once the trust levels are set for an application. The trust levels can be given a logical name representing its nature so they are easy to understand especially by a novice user who has very little knowledge about the technology. Further for each logical trust level there is a value associated this value is accumulation of all trust values of resources which are grouped under the trust level. The permission grant function takes trust level and resource trust value and grant permission only if given resource trust value contributes to the given trust level. The trust levels can be preconfigured by experts and can be reconfigurable by an expert user, the trust level configurations and mapping can securely be ported to another device.

Hear rate variability (HRV) is a noninvasive measure used to assess autonomic nervous system (ANS) activity and to predict cardiovascular diseases. Obtaining HRV parameters in the time and frequency domains from fast Fourier transform (FFT) analysis and a nonlinear analysis depends on obtaining an accurate normal-to-normal (NN) interval between two consecutive heartbeats in a time series. The accuracy of NN intervals is greatly affected by the sampling frequency of the infinite impulse response (IIR) filter, i.e., the number of photoplethysmogram (PPG) signals that are sampled per second. At present, changes in sampling frequency for PPG signals prior to obtaining NN intervals have not been studied to investigate how much they influence HRV parameters. Therefore, in this study, we evaluated the effect of sampling frequency on HRV parameters in the frequency, time, and nonlinear domains. Three sampling frequencies (1000 Hz, 500 Hz, and 250 Hz) were applied to obtain the HRV dataset using a PPG finger sensor. There were no significant differences between the two HRV datasets for sampling frequencies of 1000 Hz and 500 Hz, while there were slight differences between 1000 Hz and 250 Hz except for the pNN50 value. The correlation coefficient r was the highest (r=0.9647, p<0.0001) between the two tachograms obtained at 1000 Hz and 500 Hz, and it was a moderate value (r=0.3301, p<0.0001) between the tachograms obtained at 1000 Hz and 250 Hz. The results suggest that a sampling frequency lower than 500 Hz might lead to inaccurate HRV parameters for the HRV analysis, and consequently, a PPG sampling frequency of at least 500 Hz should be applied to a digital filter in assessing all HRV parameters.

Yeast global production showed that the demand for yeast products in many industries increases over the year. Therefore, there is a need to design a new process that is cheaper and can produce yeast in high volume to cater to the big demand. This plant design proposed the production of yeast using pineapple waste as feedstock. Several process routes using different types of substrates such as glucose, sugar cane and pineapple waste were discussed. Pineapple waste contains various minerals that can support the fermentation process for yeast production. This process includes the pretreatment of the feedstock which is liquid pineapple waste and undergoes thermal hydrolysis to convert sucrose to glucose. This is followed by the fermentation process and downstream process to obtain the yeast product. Several potential locations were also studied for the propose plant design by studying the advantages and disadvantages of each industrial area. By using this proposed plant design, it is expected that this yeast product can be produced locally by using available agriculture waste such as pineapple waste for potential yeast production.

Study on offline signature has been conducted for several years. Skilled forgery verification is difficult to be verified because of the highest similarity between genuine and forgery signature. Based on previous research, it can be concluded that genuine offline signature is never similar, but it still has consistent features. Otherwise, skilled forgery tries to mimic genuine offline signature as similar as possible. It can be hipotized that if skilled forgery signature is matched to genuine signature, it should match on consistent parts (narrow variety) and unmatch on inconsistent features (wide variety). In this reseach, the offline signature verification is conducted by two steps. In first step, the comparison is conducted based on consistant features as most researcher done. In second step, an acceptance result of first verification will be reverification using inconsistant features in order to improve the verification accuracy in case skilled forgery. Based on the experiment, it can be concluded that this proposed method can improve the verification accuracy for certain condition or depend on writer signature characteristic. Therefore, this approach can be applied only if only the conformance characteristic of writer offline signature can be identified before second step of verivication can be done. At least, this result contribute to open mind that wide variety feature can be used in offline signature verification.

As the technology is scaled down, short channel effects such as Vt variation, leakage current, gate oxide tunneling become predominant due to the reduction in gate oxide thickness. When the device is scaled down beyond 22 nm technology, the use of SiO2 as gate oxide increases tunneling current, thereby increase in power consumption and reduction in reliability of devices. Equivalent gate oxide thickness can be reduced by using high-k dielectric materials. FinFET(a type of DG-MOSFET) integrated with a high-k gate dielectric is a promising device in the subthreshold region. Simulations were performed using Sentarus TCAD. The parameters such as threshold voltage, OFF current, transconductance were analyzed. Simulation results clearly state that Short Channel Effects have been reasonably controlled by using high-k spacer material.

Dyes in surface water are widely found due to extensive use of colorants in various industries such as textiles, printing and food plants. The contaminated effluents are the crucial reasons for water pollution. Due to their obstinate or non-biodegradable nature the omnipresence dyes pose a great threat to the aquatic animals, are very toxic to mammals and act as carcinogens. The practiced methods for removing the dyes from ground water such as electro-coagulation, reverse-osmosis and ultra-filtration are burdensome, high-cost and non-repeatative. Adsorption with nanomaterials such as activated carbon (AC), carbon nano-tubes (CNT), mesoporous material and graphene has been successfully carried for removal of dye by adsorption. In this paper we have used a 2D nano material g-carbon nitride (g-C3N4) as an adsorbent as it has no toxic effect. The synthesis of g-C3N4 was carried out by taking melamine as the source material. The prepared g-C3N4 was characterized by powered XRD, FTIR and Raman spectra. The adsorption study of Methylene Blue (MB) was studied by changing various parameters such as initial concentration and pH of the solution, adsorbent dose and agitation time. The adsorption isotherm of MB onto g-C3N4 fitted well to Langmuir model indicating homogeneous monolayer adsorption. The adsorption kinetics followed a pseudo-second order mechanism. The maximum uptake for MB was 99% at a pH value of 9,initial concentration 100 ppm and adsorbent dose of 0.02 g for a contact time of 2 h.

The vehicle accident also occurs due to over speed in the cornering, particularly in high speed cars (formula cars). The main objective of project is to replace the DRAG REDUCTION SYSTEM (DRS) in formula cars. The DRS system cost over 2 to 5 lakhs depends upon the formula Race type. On fixing of adaptive spoiler in formula cars it reduces cost and increase the performance and Drag during turning. The major source to reduce the speed of the vehicle is braking system. Another source that can be utilized to decelerate the vehicle on high speed travelling is aerodynamics. Adaptive Spoiler is one major solution for decelerating the vehicle using aerodynamics. Adaptive Spoiler serves to be efficient when compared with conventional spoiler. However, the use of adaptive spoiler with compact and cost effective design is rare in vehicles. The operation of Adaptive Spoiler is based on hydraulic motors and sensors are one of its major drawbacks and it’s not yet equipped in economic passenger cars. The use of adaptive spoiler in super cars is much costlier and does not fall in the economic category. The tilting operation will be controlled by the steering wheel using cable mechanism. The Adaptive Spoiler is pivoted at the center, using a C-clamp. When the steering wheel rotates, the 2 cables attached at both ends of the steering column will push and pull the cables at specific ends in order to tilt the spoiler. The rotation of the steering wheel towards the right will push the cable at the right end and pull it from the left end tilting the spoiler anti-clockwise and vice-versa. The simulation of the Adaptive Spoiler is first done two dimensionally and modeled in SOLIDWORKS 2016 and RHINO software, then analyzed for safe design and stability at various scenarios using ANSYS software. The use of cable will be economical and the whole system will be designed for feasibility, simplicity and best performance.

The Walkability level is criteria to assess the environmental quality of street spaces in accommodating pedestrian activities. This paper discusses the level of walkability in six main road corridors of Kotatua or the Old City in Jakarta, and how that quality influence the pedestrian walking route preferences. Pedestrians in the corridors which connected to public transportation hubs are interviewed and asked to assess the aspects of walkability of the path they take. Quantitative analysis is used to determine respondents' assesments. The results shows that the walkability level of a street corridor does not always influence the user's walking preferences, due to the reasons for walking. A corridor can get a high score of walkability level but it is not necessarily become a pedestrian route preference. In choosing routes, pedestrians are more concerned about distance and attractive atmosphere, rather than walkability aspects.

The extensive use of plastics derived from fossil fuels caused adverse environmental impact due to their non-biodegradability. Alternatively bio-based plastics derived from renewable resources are biodegradable in various environmental conditions. Plant based carbohydrates, cellulose and proteins have several disadvantages like poor thermal stability, water vapour barrier property and limited mechanical strength which hamper the application in its native form. Modification of the composition of these bio based polymers with the addition of plasticizers may improve the mechanical properties (tensile strength, tear and burst strength etc.), barrier properties (light, gas and water vapour) and thermal stability, by co-polymerisation, trans-esterification, and grafting. In this review, the developments in the utilization of bio based materials for the production of biodegradable bioplastics have been critically discussed with several examples.

The growing number of students continuing their study to higher education creates a high demand for student housing and its supporting facilities in a college town. Residential areas near the campus become the main choice for students because it saves their cost and time, besides the wide selection of housing amenities and price becomes their consideration. Changes in the campus neighborhood area can lead to socio-cultural, economic, and physical impacts, which called as studentification. Therefore, this research aims to identify the perceptions of stakeholders about the impact of studentification in Malang City, as the most preferred college town in Indonesia. Descriptive qualitative research is based on a case study and the information obtained from in-depth interviews with stakeholders who engaged directly in the research area (namely students, boarding house owners, residents, and business actors). The results show that most of the socio-cultural, economic, and physical impacts that are found in other studies also occur in the research site. In this case, one of the differences can be seen in the socio-cultural character of students who always try to adapt to the habits of the local community, and on the other hand, residents try to understand how to treat students. This research shows that the presence of students has a positive impact on the area. Local people feel happy because the area becomes lively and more dynamic, and also improved the population welfare in the research area.

Balanced housing policy objective is to reach a harmony in diversity. It regulates the diversity of housing units into 3:2:1 proportion. It shows a comparison of 3 simple type houses, 2 medium types, and 1 luxury type based on its area or price. Due to the profit gain, the developers found it difficult to apply. This study aim is to identify the optimized housing proportion fulfilling the comparison and still gaining the profit. The unit of analysis is cluster where the community harmony can take place. Burgundy Residence and Olive Residence in Summarecon Bekasi took as samples. The research method is operational research. By comparing the number of each house types, its affordability, and its proportion using the simplex-method showed that there is inconsistency in this balanced housing policy based on an area and price. The two clusters showed imbalance proportion in term of area and affordability. The optimization has balanced proportion with an expanded stretch of land. The unit prices also need to be increased to keep gaining the profit. In terms of affordability, the real price of the simple type is much higher than the price set in the policy. The housing type proportion based on the area and prices are not synchronous. The balanced housing policy in terms of price cannot realize its objectives because the simple type is certainly not able to be in one stretch with two other types. It means that the goal of balanced housing policy to create harmony cannot be achieved.

To create an effective and flexible analytical tool for quantifying the toxic impurity trace amount, formaldehyde in the active pharmaceutical component or the product material. The procedure to be established must be accurate and precise, flexible, rough and simple in order to be reproducible in any laboratory, even taking into account the expense of the study. While formaldehyde was gas at room temp, it appears as a 37-40 percent formaldehyde solution as detailed in the introduction. Because the sample has only one carbon atom in it, it becomes difficult to quantify using a GC-FID detector, since it doesn't have enough energy for combustion. Nevertheless, the presence of formaldehyde often contributes significantly to the Blank in solvents such as Methanol and Acetonitrile as well as from the environment, and thus removing this intervening value from the Blank Chromatogram becomes a task. The chromatograph was filled with liquids that had a lower concentration of impurities. For the observed reaction the signal to noise ratios has been determined. The results of the initial analysis and the results of the post-preservation analysis were compared and found to suit well within the set limit for Entecavir up to 24 hours of solution stability testing. Because the findings of initial analysis and study are similar after survival up to 24 hours, the solution remains stable up to 24 hrs.

In today’s world, consulting a doctor has become frequent due to illness. Also, we know that, due to lack of health consciousness and low immunity, especially children fall ill frequently. So we developed an information providing system especially for children aged up to 10 years. Since every parent cannot go to doctor for medicines due to various reasons like unavailability of medical treatment nearby or if the disease is a repeated one and commonly seen like fever, cold. So, people prefer to visit medical shops instead of consulting doctor in order to get medicines. There is a danger of giving the wrong medication or over dosage to their children. This Medicine Information System aims at providing medicine data like description and cost including its uses, precautions, long term effects and directions for usage for a particular disease. Only medicines that are approved by the Government of India are taken into consideration. This is a web-based application developed using SOA architecture. This is implemented as a real-time application, also in a regional language, so that users can get knowledge about children medicines easily.

This paper investigates the performance enhancement of magnetic levitation system using current cycle ILC (iterative learning controller). Because the magnetic ball suspension system is unstable, it is difficult to design a suitable control scheme for stabilizing the ball. Hybrid current cycle learning controller is proposed for controlling the position of ball. The current cycle learning controller performance is illustrated using simulation. The superiority of the current cycle learning controller is shown by measuing the parameters like overshoot, settling time, ISE and IAE.

Background: Intestinal helminthic infections are common among children especially in sub Saharan Africa where they may co-infect with malaria. In co-infections synergistic effects affects severity. Therefore, there is need to understand immune dynamics and modulations in dual infections. Materials and Methods: Specimens from 168 children aged between 6-14 years with malaria were obtained of whom 84 (50%) had intestinal helminthes. Blood specimen was obtained and malaria parasites were demonstrated using Giemsa staining technique and cytokines were evaluated by flow cytometry technique. Results It was observed that pro-inflammatory IL2 and IL6 cytokine responses were more elevated in severe cases as compared to uncomplicated malaria (P< 0.001); levels of TNFα (pro-inflammatory) and IL10 (anti-inflammatory) response was directly proportional to malaria severity. There was an increased IL10 and TNFα response in Hookworm infection compared with malaria infection only (P=0.009); and (p=0.042) respectively; while IL2 and IL6 were reduced (p=0.001 and P<0.001) respectively. S.mansoni significantly increased IFNƔ response compared with malaria infections only (P=0.046) whereas T.trichuria and S.stercolaris reduced IL6 response in comparison with malaria cases only (P =0.047) and T.trichuria reduced IL6 response (P=0.001). A.lumbricoides reduced IL2 and IL6 (P<0.001) responses. E.vemicularis; H.nana; and T.saginata did not affect response of cytokines under this study. Hookworm and A.lumbricoides modulate cytokine responses during co-infections, with the former increasing both IL10 and TNFα levels while the latter decreased IL2 and IL6 which was positively associated with an increased risk of malaria severity.From the findings, IL6 may be used as biomarker to differentiate between uncomplicated and severe malaria.

This paper presents a Mixed Integer Non-Linear Programming (MINLP) approach for long-term transmission expansion planning problem in a Locational Marginal Pricing (LMP) based electricity market. The problem formulation consists of maximization of social welfare of market participants (Generation Companies/ Generator Serving Traders and Distribution companies/ Distribution Serving Traders) and minimization of transmission investment cost of Transmission Company, subject to real and reactive power flow equality constraints, network congestion inequality constraints (represented in terms of line overloading limits) and bounds on variables. The social welfare function of market participants has been defined as benefit function of Distribution companies/ Distribution Serving Traders minus cost function of Generation Companies/ Generator Serving Traders. While modeling market functioning, a number of seasons of generation and bus loadings and corresponding generation and demand bids have been taken into account over the planning horizon. The modeling of power flow and network congestion constraints has been carried out using DC as well as AC approaches. The proposed model is tested on Garver’s six bus system. It has been concluded that the profile of LMPs over the system buses tend to equalize after transmission expansion planning both in DC and AC approaches. However the results obtained for transmission expansion planning of AC approach largely differ from that of the DC approach. The DC modeling is based on approximations of neglecting losses and reactive power flow in transmission network, which does not lead to accurate results. Hence, it has also been concluded that the DC modeling should not be employed fortransmission expansion planning problems in electricity markets.

This study aims to examine causality relation among export, import and rate of exchange of USD/IDR. Export, import and rate of exchange of USD/IDR data were time series data of quarters which extended in 2004Q1-2017Q3 periods. The result of VAR test and Granger causality test show that there were one way short-run relationship from exchange rate of USD/IDR to export and from exchange rate of USD/IDR to import. In other words, in short-run, there was any influence of exchange rate of USD/IDR toward export and import. That influences was negative and it means that if exchange rate of USD/IDR went down (currency value of IDR strengthen), export and import of Indonesia will be up and vice versa.

Proteases catalyze the hydrolysis of peptide bonds of a protein; they are present in many organisms such as plants, animals and microorganisms. Proteases perform various medicinal functions in humans they participate in wound healing, blood coagulation, digestion process and also can be used in antibody therapy and protease haves many other applications like in detergents, leather industry, pharmaceutical industry and bioremediation processes. The present study aimed at determination of protease activity from traditional medicine plant Bidens pilosa and study of incubation pH effect, Bidens Pilosa were collected in Rwasave wetlands. The leaves were ground in a mortar in an appropriate buffer. The protease activity was assayed by hydrolyzing casein as substrate by incubation at two different pH (pH4 and pH 10), at 30oC. The breakdown of casein results in releasing tyrosine. The tyrosine was colororated with the Folin-Ciocalteu reagent and read in a spectrophotometer at 660 nm and the levels were calculated, thanks to standard curve. The protease activity was expressed in mmol/mg leaves/min of incubation. The present study, shows that absorbance increase when the concentration of tyrosine increase and protease activity reported in terms of mM/mg/min in 2 different pH condition and it was found Bidens Pilosa presents higher Protease activity in acid pH 4 in comparison with alkaline pH10 its protease activity were 8.2567×10-7 mM/mg/min and 5.15×10-7 mM/mg/min respectively. This means that proteases are sensitive to pH and pH affect protease activity. The conclusion of the study states that fresh leaves of Bidens Pilosa contain proteases as common biological activity used in medicinal property and proteases from Bidens Pilosa can be used in acidic medium pH 4 than in alkaline medium pH 10.

Optimizing the role of women in the development of tourism at this time is needed. This fact is based on the lack of women's role in the public sphere. This is because there are still many people who adhere to the patriarchal principle so that the role of women is limited to domestic space. All aspects have such a perception, especially in the development of tourism activities, the role of women is still small and even invisible. Women are only seen participating in trading food or accessories to fulfill their daily needs. Including women as one of the main actors in the development of tourism is not impossible if the potential possessed by women can be developed. The study was conducted using a qualitative-quantitative approach using a questionnaire method to 75 respondents, in-depth interviews, non-participant observation, PRA, and discussion group elements in three districts namely Samosir District, Dairi District, and Toba Samosir District. The results of the study found data that Batak ethnic women who were in this research location had a lot of potential and abilities both in terms of ideas and creativity but were not yet able to develop them. The idea that informants have is not only to increase their economic needs but also to increase tourist arrivals in the Lake Toba tourism area. Besides, it was found that the Batak ethnic women were very active and would make every effort to meet the economic needs of their families. Toba Batak women want to have their own business but they still have obstacles in starting capital. The potential of Batak women in the field of technology is still not maximal, Toba Batak women do not use technological developments to develop their abilities and businesses

Teaching profession has been dominated by women mainly in low-level grade. The most significant gap between female and male teacher is identified in kindergarten and elementary level. In line with this issue, there is a course in university-level which is also dominated by female students, namely English for Young Learner (EYL) course at English Language and Education Department (ELED) in University of Muhammadiyah Malang. It is, therefore, this study aims to investigate male students’ perception toward EYL course. Survey research design was applied in this research and the data was collected using questionnaire and semi-structured interview. The participants who filled the questionnaire were fifty-three male students of ELED UMM in academic year 2015 who have taken elective course—Business English, Translation, and English for Young Learner. The findings of this study highlighted that 9 out of 15 items resulted in negative responses toward EYL course. They perceived that EYL course is complicated, demanding and exhausting course because of its difficulty. Then, teaching young children has never been considered as their future career and they also do not want to become a teacher for young children. Additionally, there are also few male students perceived positively toward EYL course, they stated that EYL course is fun and challenging course. Furthermore, the authors suggested the department to attract more male students to become a teacher for the young learner.

The survival of day to day life mainly depends on the electrical power supply. When any power shut down or breakdown of power supply happens due to unexpected reasons, the need of power backup is necessary to run our life at least for minimum duration of two to three. As a solution of this problem, batteries are invented. Inverter battery works in the mechanism of converting Direct Current (DC) into an Alternating Current (AC). The distilled water in the battery plays a major role, as ordinary water contains minerals and salts which fill the pores and forms a layer on the plates, affecting the normal electro-chemical reaction that generates power in the battery. The electro-chemical reaction has been analyzed based on level of distilled water. When the level of distilled water. The decrease of water level below the threshold value and if not monitored, the lifetime and the efficiency of the battery get affected and battery may be overheated. Hence, it is very much important to refill the distilled water on time. When the battery gets over heated, the hydrogen sulphide present inside acts as hazardous gas turns out from batteries which affects the human health and in turns decrease the life time of battery. In this work, smart inverter monitoring system (SIMS) has been developed which will monitor and inform the authorized owner by SMS notification to phone number via a GSM Module. The developed system gives better results with good reliability.

An entrepreneur considers various factors while starting a new venture. One of the main factor is availability of a great location that fulfills all the requirements of the business to be set up. A great location has high scope of attracting new customers and increasing sales. To obtain such a space in this competitive environment is very difficult. Even if the location is obtained, sustainability of the business is still a doubt. So to overcome high competition and other external factors, an entrepreneur has to take necessary steps. The entrepreneur needs to be aware of the changing trends and requirements of the customers so that they hold a reputation in the competitive era. In Cochin, Kerala, most of the entrepreneurs who owns boutiques prefer Panampilly Nagar – a Residential Commercial Zone which is a commercial hub for many establishments other than boutiques too, as the first preference to launch their boutiques. Reasons for this are plenty. This study mainly aims to find out why Boutique entrepreneurs chose Panampilly Nagar for their business establishment and the factors on how they overcome the high competition due to the wide number of boutiques established in Panampilly Nagar.
