3. Fatigue seen in caregivers of the intellectually disabled population

Individuals with disabilities are often dependent on their primary caregivers for assistance and activities of daily living. A caregiver here may either be a family member or a person trained in special health care. Most caregivers are found to be stressed and fatigued due to the nature of their work. In case the caregiver is a member of the family it is important to equally distribute the responsibilities of the disabled person amongst family members to avoid extra burden on any one person.

4. Sex education program for intellectually disabled

Individuals with special needs experience the same sexual feelings like the neurotypical population. This process consists of an interaction between the physical, cognitive, mental, social, relational, ethical, religious and cultural factors as illustrated by Murphy and Elias (2006). Sex education can support children and young people with disabilities in their sexual development and contribute to their health and wellbeing but most of them are deprived of this privilege and do not get the required education that would foster a positive image of sexuality and would empower them. The present paper aims at presenting a full-fledged curriculum design that can enable the intellectually disabled to learn about sex education in a step by step and gradual manner with reinforcement at different stages to gauge the level of understanding of the same.

5. Intrusion Detection Classification and Detection by Machine Learning and Deep Learning Approaches: Review

DoS attacks that disrupt important, intelligent services like healthcare can also result in human death due to the disruption of routine services. devices (for example, intelligent refrigerators, smart televisions, and air conditioners) are easily attacked by attackers who exploit their weaknesses to launch denial-of-service attacks. As a result, one of the primary concerns for researchers all over the world is the protection of these devices. Globally, intrusion detection is being studied to fix this matter. IDS are classified into three categories based on their detection capabilities: Depending on a signature, a specification, or an anomaly. Whenever a device or network connections analyses an attack against a signature contained in the inner IDS database, an attack is identified by IDSs. If a device or network operation matches one of the saved signatures/patterns, a warning will be generated. This method is extremely reliable and effective at recognizing identified risks, and its process is simple to comprehend. However, this technique is ineffective in classifying new attacks and discrepancies between current These sorts of assaults do not have a meaningful signature to identify them If the divergence from a specified behaviour profile exceeds a predefined threshold, an anomaly-based intrusion detection system (IDS) issues an alert. Classifying intrusions does not seem to follow a typical pattern, and understanding the whole spectrum of normal activity is not an easy task. Emerging threats may be identified using this method. As a consequence, there is a significant rate of false positives with this method. Routing tables, protocols, and nodes, for example, are all part of the specification-based approach since they are all defined by a set of rules and criteria. It is possible to identify intrusions when network behaviour deviates from standards' specifications, using specification-based techniques. Therefore, specification-based detection is used for the same goal as anomaly detection: to separate aberrant behaviour from normal behaviour.

6. Credit Card Fraud Detection and Classification by Optimize Features and Deep Learning

Traditionally, rule-based systems have been the primary instrument for detecting fraud in today's financial systems, with fraud specialists defining the rules based on prior instances and outcomes. If a new transaction meets one or more of the previously established criteria, an alert is triggered, indicating that the new transaction may be fraudulent. For previously known fraud tendencies, the rule-based method is effective. Before adding a new rule to the current rule set, a sufficient number of fraudulent transactions must have happened that fit the rule. During this time span, fraud techniques may evolve, resulting in the induced rule expiring. Thus, the emphasis should be on using prior transactions that follow a rule-based approach in conjunction with an unsupervised method that detects previously unknown fraud activity. There is a need to use fraud detection systems that are capable of keeping up with the cardholder's updated spending behaviour. The detection process's goal is to identify as much fraud as possible while reducing the false positive rate, which has a negative effect on cardholder satisfaction as the cost of providing more false alarms increases. To accomplish this approach, the threshold value is determined at the account level of the cardholder by evaluating the probability sequence of previous and new incoming transactions. Additionally, identified fraudulent transactions are labelled in the database for future analysis in the event that additional assessment is required.

9. Operations Research on service scheduling in the healthcare sector: A systematic review

The current state of healthcare in the world is dire, with millions of people unable to access healthcare services on time. One of the key reasons behind this problem is the lack of operational efficiency in many clinics and hospitals, caused due to unscientific scheduling practices. Hence, this paper seeks to conduct a systematic review of the existing research done in the field of healthcare service scheduling, and its multiple sub-sections viz. appointment scheduling, nurse rostering, home healthcare scheduling, etc. The bibliometric review found that majority of the research in the aforementioned field is scattered and lacks integration. Moreover, past research has primarily employed matheuristics, mixed integer linear programming and simulation approaches to solve service scheduling problems, without exploring other methods to a great extent. In the end, we suggest some topics in which future research can be conducted.

13. Impact of social media during elections - A global perspective

Smart leaders frequently use new media to affect politics. Election-related effects of social media were noticeable in the early 2000s. In his first presidential campaign, Barack Obama made use of social media to mobilize the public and win the 2008 election. According to Pew Research Center, 74% of internet users or 55% of the adult population—looked for election news online during Obama's first campaign. Local elections also benefit greatly from social media. A famous example is when Beto O'Rourke came dangerously close to unseating Senator Ted Cruz in 2018. The majority of Indian political figures now use Facebook and Twitter to express themselves without the censorship of mainstream media. It is vital to understand how social media affects elections and what voters can do to use the internet responsibly given that candidates devote a lot of resources to social media campaigns. Social media platforms were created by businesses to encourage interaction, but although this interaction can help politicians spread their messages and reach more voters, it has also been demonstrated to make it simple for election misinformation to spread globally

14. Application of Queuing Theory in Passenger Queuing Optimization at Airports – A Systematic Review

Waiting lines and queues are a frequent occurrence in both the workings of businesses and the daily lives of clients. A queue is the first contact point between a business and its client. Clients may not be satisfied with lengthy queues. Therefore, in order to leave a lasting first impression on the client’s mind, it is crucial for a company to ensure minimal queuing. The aviation industry experiences significant queuing issues as a result of passengers queuing up for boarding, departure, luggage pickup, and so on. A systematic queue network is also required to guarantee that planes experience minimum air and runway congestion. Queuing theory is a mathematical approach to the analysis of queue waiting times. This paper presents a run-through of queuing theory and its application in the aviation industry, covering a detailed explanation of queuing theory, terminologies associated with it, recent advancements in airport queuing, various queuing models, as well as some suggestions for further research.

17. Experimental analysis and optimization of wind turbine for domestic application

The conventional sources of energy are fast depleting and are causing very serious problem to the environment, for example combustion of fuels causes atmospheric pollution which is not suitable for human beings as well as other species living in the environment. The other major drawback of conventional sources is their high cost. The processes by which the conventional sources are extracted are also expensive. So there is a need to search for alternate source of energy and to extract them to meet our needs. An attempt is made to extract alternate source of energy that is wind. Wind energy is used to rotate the blade which helps the dc motor to produce dc current. By installing small wind turbine in the village and city which is situated in western ghat of Tamandu and Maharashtra, the state of Gujarat and Karnataka we can easily produce electricity due to its geographical location. This small wind turbine is able to generate the enough power for a household application in remote area. This will help the nation to overcome with the power crises problem specially in summer season

20. Design and Modeling of Distributed Generation with Solar Micro Grid

Today most things are electrified and at the same time demand for the electricity is rapidly increasing. So, to overcome this deviation between generating capacity and demand, we need to increase the generation of electricity. These sudden changes in the energy demands and forecast can be met with the implementation of Renewable energy sources in less time. This is the reason nowadays the world running towards renewable energy generation sources like Solar, Wind, etc. Renewable energy generation is a Carbon-free emission. Generation with Solar PV System could be a solution to overcome energy demand day by day. As the solar PV system is depending on Sun and weather conditions, so it gives low and varying which provides a lower efficiency compared with the other energy sources, An MPPT technique plays an in increasing the output of the solar PV system by tracking the maximum power that could generate at the point of the instance of solar irradiance. An optimum point will be determined at which the maximum power point is defined, and it may vary with cell temperatures and insulation levels at a certain PV Array voltage. The work of an MPPT is to extract the maximum power from the optimal point of the solar PV array to increase the output from the system. Our motto is two eliminate the difference between, load demand and generation. So, by using MPPT Techniques along with Distributed Generation system we can achieve this. Distributed generation system is nothing but a generating station near load centers. By this technique, we install solar generating stations in rural areas and they will connect with the main supply grid, so we will distribute the electricity without interruption.

24. Privatization of public sector – An Indian perspective

Privatisation is not a single, distinct economic idea. Instead, it encompasses a diverse variety of activities that all indicate a shift in the delivery of goods and services from the public to the private sector. Privatization, for instance, encompasses a variety of actions, such as the sale of public assets to private owners, the simple termination of government initiatives, the contracting out of previously provided services by state agencies to private producers, and the entry of private companies into markets that were previously monopolized by the state. Additionally, the definition of privatisation varies around the world depending on where it is practised and the underlying economic principles. Many business analysts and economic experts believe that privatisation could accelerate economic growth owing to more competition, while others believe that it could actually worsen existing problems like unemployment and cause the economy to regress. This substantial move from public to private administration in India will result in a variety of notable improvements, including increased effectiveness and quality of remaining government functions, less taxation, and a reduction in overall government size. The profit-seeking conduct of new, private sector management will surely result in cost reduction and more emphasis on customer satisfaction in the tasks that are privatised.

Additionally, it creates the framework for a company's goals to be met and covers almost every aspect of management, from action plans and internal controls to performance evaluation and corporate disclosures. The need for an efficient and transparent corporate governance system has grown as a result of high-profile corporate governance failure scams, such as the stock market scam, the UTI scam, the Ketan Parikh scam, and the Satyam scam, which was sharply criticized by the shareholders. These scams have a significant impact on the nation's development.

29. Wilful defaulters and the Indian banking sector: A study

In this research paper, we analyze the increasing number of wilful defaulters in India and how certain shortcomings of the banking system contribute to this. Recently, the rising incidence of NPAs has generally caused the performance of the banking sector to decline. The paper encompasses past defaults that have occurred and how they have impacted the Indian financial sector. It is important to acknowledge how a well-structured banking sector contributes to the development of a country. We have made use of secondary data from various sources to support our assumption about the increase of wilful defaulters.

30. Which silicon structure makes the most effective solar cell?

This research paper aims at examining which silicon structure would make the best solar cell. Three different structures were used - polycrystalline, monocrystalline, and amorphous. By using different colored filters with different wavelengths, the wavelength of the incident light was altered. The current and voltage that were generated by the monocrystalline solar cell were measured for different incident light wavelengths. This was then repeated for the other 2 structures of solar cells. The analysis of the obtained data resulted in the following conclusions: 1. There is perhaps a large bandgap in the amorphous cell, as its output varies with frequency. 2. There is perhaps a small bandgap in polycrystalline cells, as at lower wavelengths, its output varies with frequency; at higher wavelengths, its output varies with intensity. 3. There is a medium-sized bandgap in monocrystalline cells. The output of the monocrystalline cell varies between the outputs of the other 2 cells. At higher wavelengths, the output varies to a certain extent with intensity; at lower wavelengths, the output varies to a certain extent with frequency. As a result, their conclusions were used in order to answer the research question that stated, “Which silicon structure makes the most effective solar cell?” There is no ideal structure for a solar cell; each structure’s effectiveness is determined by its usage. The amorphous cell is not expensive, and there is little variation in its output with a change in intensity. However, it produces relatively less power. As a result, it is highly effective for smaller-scale usages such as in watches or calculators, in environments that have low intensity. The polycrystalline cell output mainly varies with intensity, which thereby makes it useful for outdoor usages such as in deserts. At low wavelengths, it shows variation with a change in frequency, which thereby makes it useful for times such as dawn and dusk when there is bluish light. Since its production of power is much greater, it is highly suitable for larger-scale productions of energy. The monocrystalline cell has an output that is greater than the amorphous cell, but not high enough to account for its expensive cost. It is applicable on a smaller scale, such as in processor chips.

33. Surgical Safety Checklist: Challenges and A Way Out

Surgery is at the pinnacle of today’s health care system. It is the only intervention that alleviates pain, disability and decreases the risk of death from common conditions. While surgeries are expected to safe lives, negligence in carrying out them can cause substantial harm to the patients. In 2009, the World Health Organization (WHO) published the Surgical Safety Checklist (SSC) as part of their Safe Surgery Saves Lives campaign. It was developed by WHO with the aim to decrease errors and adverse events and increase teamwork and communication in surgery. Over the years, this 19-item checklist has shown reduction in both morbidity and mortality among surgical patients and is now used by most of the surgical providers all over the planet. Though the checklist has improved surgical outcomes, many health-care providers are hesitant in implementing it in their everyday practice. Right utilization of this form can transform surgical care.

34. The effect of social media marketing on consumer behaviour

Nearly every industry in India has adopted social media marketing. According to a Goldman Sachs report, the Indian digital marketing business is expected to be worth $160 billion by 2025. Digital marketing is expanding quickly in India as consumers have been inspired to purchase from a new brand after seeing social media images or posts, thus it has been found that 71% of consumers are more likely to make a purchase based on social media referrals. Therefore it is important for us to understand how social media has influenced consumers' purchase behavior. Therefore the research aimed to investigate the factors that influence customer buying decisions through online forms of marketing (social media) by comparing it with offline forms of marketing(billboards), by making use of the advertisements provided by the multinational company Starbucks. The research also aimed to investigate why individuals are more convinced to buy a drink through social media than through offline marketing. The research was conducted on 40 customers of Starbucks in India, and Mumbai, most of them being students who follow Starbucks on various social media platforms. Data was collected through an online questionnaire sent through google forms. The results of the research indicated that since social media marketing makes use of various creative elements(music, graphic,s and colors), customer testimonials and helps satisfy a need, which gives them social proof, individuals are more convinced to purchase a drink from Starbucks than through offline forms of marketing. This concludes that social media marketing is more effective than offline marketing since it gives social proof, and therefore has a more significant effect on consumers' purchase behavior.

35. Effect of Intradialytic Aerobic Exercise on Fatigue in Patients Undergoing Hemodialysis

Fatigue is a common debilitating symptom which remains unrecognized among people with chronic kidney disease with significant impacts on patients’ everyday functioning. The aim of this study was to determine the effect of intradialytic aerobic exercise on fatigue in hemodialysis patients. A Quasi experimental study was carried out among 60 adult hemodialysis patients (30 each in the groups) selected by consecutive sampling technique. The baseline characteristics and pretest fatigue score were assessed for both the groups and the intradialytic aerobic exercise was administered for 8 weeks (three times/week) among the experimental group. Then post intervention I and II fatigue score were assessed in both the groups at end of 4th and 8th week. In Control group, there was no statistically significant difference in fatigue score between pre intervention, post intervention I and II (32.43 ± 7.78, 32.20 ± 7.00 and 31.13 ± 8.44, F=1.29, p = 0.28)). Whereas, in experimental group, there was significant reduction in fatigue score in post intervention I (26.97 ± 8.60) and II (23.57 ± 7.29) than pre intervention (32.20 ± 8.64) at p=0.001. There was significant difference in post intervention I (t=2.58, p= 0.001) and post intervention II (t=3.71, p = 0.001) between control and experimental group. This study shows that intradialytic aerobic exercises is beneficial in reducing fatigue, as a supplementary therapy in hemodialysis patients.

36. Parental explanatory model and perceived burden of child and adolescent psychiatric disorder

To assess the explanatory model and perceived burden of child and adolescent psychiatric disorder and to study the relationship between them. Observation design was used. Computerized simple random technique was used to recruit 200 subjects after consent. Short explanatory model interview (SEMI) was used to assess the explanatory model and the family intervention burden scale was used to rate the burden of primary care givers. Among 200 subjects, 53.5% and 50.5% have medical model and non medical model respectively. Among the medical model 46.5% have allopathic perspective and 54.5% have complementary and alternative medicine model. Mean burden of primary care giver was 18.86 with SD ±11.08. There is a significant relationship between explanatory model and perceived burden of primary care givers (P=0.025). Assessing and understanding the influence of explanatory model on burden helps in intervening with burden of the primary care givers. Education and support are an essential part of nursing care. It is an effective method for improving the knowledge as well as decreasing burden of child and adolescent psychiatric disorders among primary care givers and will help in increasing adherence to therapeutic regimen.

41. Maggi out of a “big soup”

Maggi as a word is one that each Indian recognizes and Maggi as a brand is one that each Indian loves. Over the years, Maggi Noodles has become an emotion rather than a brand. Bringing back nostalgic memories of childhood and solving instant food problems for all social classes; Maggi Noodles has always been the go-to solution. After being the household favorite for over 32 years, in 2015 was a ban imposed on Nestle’s Maggi Noodles. Combating a long fight was not easy for Maggi, especially as it was in the constant public light and there were people protesting (Reddy, 2020). To date, questions still arise about the health hazards of Maggi and this research has been conducted to understand just how much these questions have impacted consumer buying choices. We have done so by creating a survey asking various questions about the subject's relationship with Maggi, gathering these responses, and analyzing them. Some questions asked were ‘How often do you consume Maggi noodles? ,‘Did you crave Maggi during the Maggi ban?’, ‘Is Maggi a synonym for noodles to you?’ etc. Through this extensive research, we found the answers to our questions and realized that even though Maggi has had its fair share of setbacks, it is still the leading instant noodle brand in India and is loved by people of all ages alike (Ray, 2016).

42. A study on negative impact of advertisement on children

The purpose of this research is to make a review of the impact of television advertisements on children to understand the potential effect of TV advertising and specific pessimistic view of that exposure to young audiences. The study was conducted by using secondary data. Advertisement is a form of communication. It is about different products, services or ideas to its audiences. This paper deals with the analysis of negative impacts of advertisements on children which are telecasted on the television. In the present scenario TVs play an important role in our daily lives. The impact of advertisements on children is becoming catastrophic day by day. Findings indicated that television is not only providing entertainment, but also force young children to demand for must have items. Earlier, young children were off limits to advertisers and now they directly appeal to them. Advertisements create awareness among children in different aspects like entertainment, culture, news, sports and latest innovations & trends. In spite of this, all of these advertisements create a negative impact on children's minds. The adverse effects on children are interpreting and understanding the message being presented to them wrongfully. Aspects of the impact of TV advertising on children has spoiled their habitual actions, leading to pester, emerge conflicts and animosity in the family, increase the family budget, make demand for less nutritious products linked with obesity and poor health, imitate celebrities etc while it provides limited advantages.This paper deals with its negative effects and how to overcome those effects and provisional measures.

44. The Contribution of Social Media in Fueling Rebellion Among Teenagers

Marketing strategists have utilized social media platforms to increase sales, establish brand identity, and raise awareness. However, there are difficulties in converting public participation into financial growth. As a result, the current study looked into the challenges and success of social media marketing in attracting customers. The food retail market in India was the focus of the study because it has a diverse retail pattern and a simultaneous rise in social media use and internet use. The quantitative component of the research helped identify the relevant factors that customers perceive as having a significant impact on social media marketing's efficacy. Interviews with social media strategists were part of the qualitative research component, which helped decipher the implemented strategies as well as the opportunities and challenges associated with social media marketing. Two major Jakarta-based retailers served as the subjects of the study. According to the quantitative results of the survey, consumers did not consider the social aspect of social media marketing to be helpful in achieving their goals. Customers' perceptions of the relevance of social media marketing were found to be significantly influenced by factors such as belief (relevance of social media in obtaining up-to-date information and the capacity to share experiences), community participation (active participation in a retailer's social media page and stimulating the retail brand), monetary (obtaining better prices and free coupons for making purchases), and psychological (seeking a sense of affiliation and belonging in the community and establishing and maintaining relationships with other members).

45. Student attendance recording and performance analysis using a web application.

Smartphones are becoming more preferred companions to users than desktops or notebooks. Knowing that smartphones are most popular with users at the age of around 26, using smartphones to speed up the process of taking attendance by university instructors would save lecturing time and hence enhance the educational process. This paper proposes a system that is based on a QR code, which is displayed for students during or at the beginning of each lecture. The students will need to scan the code in order to confirm their attendance. Face recognition and location detection techniques are also included in the app to verify student identity to eliminate false registrations The proposed model computes numerical reputation values for an entity and its aspects based on opinions collected from various platforms. Our proposed system also offers an advanced visualization tool that displays detailed information about its output.

46. Are cryptocurrencies and digital assets in a bubble?

This paper aims to try to conclusively figure out whether cryptocurrencies and digital assets, which some investors call “assets of the future” are in a financial bubble, and using past data aims to find out what will happen if this bubble bursts, and what will be the future of this asset class. This paper hypothesizes that cryptocurrencies are in fact in a bubble, but due to the utility and use cases of this technology, some elements of this asset class may survive and may be able to fulfill the purpose of cryptocurrencies. Through the research conducted in this paper, it is concluded that cryptocurrencies were in an economic bubble, and the bubble burst in 2022, causing massive losses. The paper, however, also concludes that some parts of cryptocurrency may survive and like the hypothesis states may be able to be the future of finance as a whole, and fulfill the initial purpose of why cryptocurrencies were created.
