1. Personality Chaos in Select Novels of Anita Desai

Personality is the combination of behavior, emotion, motivation, and thought patterns that define an individual. Personality psychology attempts to study similarities and differences in these patterns among different people and groups. Anita Desai is one of the best-known famous women writers of Indian fiction in English. In her novels like “cry the peacock “and “where shall we go this summer “she presents the personality disorders of women characters. Personality also refers to the pattern of thoughts, feelings, social adjustments, and behaviors consistently exhibited over time that strongly influences one's expectations, self-perceptions, values, and attitudes. It also predicts human reactions to other people's, problems, and stress. Gordon Allport (1937) described two major ways to study personality: the nomothetic and the idiographic. Nomothetic psychology seeks general laws that can be applied to many different people, such as the principle of self-actualization or the trait of extraversion. Idiographic psychology is an attempt to understand the unique aspects of a particular individual.

3. A Secure and Dynamic Multi-keyword Ranked Search Scheme over Encrypted Cloud Data

The major aim of this paper is to solve the problem of multi-keyword ranked search over encrypted cloud data (MRSE) at the time of protecting exact method wise privacy in the cloud computing concept. Data holders are encouraged to outsource their difficult data management systems from local sites to the business public cloud for large flexibility and financial savings. However, for protecting data privacy, sensitive data have to be encrypted before outsourcing, which performs traditional data utilization based on plain text keyword search. As a result, allowing an encrypted cloud data search service is of supreme significance. In view of a large number of data users and documents in the cloud, it is essential to permit several keywords in the search demand and return documents in the order of their appropriate to these keywords. The similar mechanism on searchable encryption makes center on single keyword search or Boolean keyword search and rarely sort the search results. In the middle of various multi-keyword semantics, deciding the well-organized similarity measure of “coordinate matching,” it means that as many matches as possible, to capture the appropriate data documents to the search query. Particularly, we consider “inner product similarity” i.e., a number of query keywords show in a document, to quantitatively estimate such match measure that document to the search query. Through the index construction, every document is connected with a binary vector as a sub-index where each bit characterize whether matching keyword is contained in the document. The search query is also illustrated as a binary vector where each bit means whether the corresponding keyword appears in this search request, so the matched one could be exactly measured by the inner product of the query vector with the data vector. On the other hand, directly outsourcing the data vector or the query vector will break the index privacy or the search privacy. The vector space model facilitates to offer enough search accuracy, and the DES encryption allows users to occupy in the ranking while the popularity of computing work is done on the server side by the process only on cipher text. As a consequence, data leakage can be eradicated and data security is guaranteed.

4. A Cost-Effective Prototype Software Solution with Sample Administration for Fund Utilization in Waste Management Administration Using MATLAB-GUI

In the context of “SwachhSarvekshan”, the concept of waste management plays a very significant role in achieving the vision and mission of “Swachh Bharat Abhiyan”, the clean mission of India. Waste, on one hand, can become a factor undesirable, on the other and the most important angle can contribute significantly to the national income as it has the potential to become a great source of income if put to use through recycling and reusing. The present research paper focusing on domestic waste highlights the software solution that was designed using MATLAB-GUI for using in accounting for revenues or losses generated during the administration of waste management, particularly at the municipality level. Considering nine modules with nine parameters as one for each module, the software formulated assists in the calculation of revenues generated out of recycled and reused waste, in a flash of a moment. The software will also provide a solution for re-planning the process of re-usage of waste if any discrepancy is found between the budget amount and the actual costs incurred. The cumbersome managerial issues hitherto involved in various administrative processes for waste management find an easy electronic solution in the software designed in the current research paper.

5. An Improved Energy Aware Trust Derivation Scheme using Game Theoretic Approach

In wireless sensor networks (WSN) trust plays a very important role, which is one of the most popular network technologies for the Internet of Things (IoT). The efficiency of the trust evaluation process is largely comprised by the trust derivation, as it influences the overhead in the process, and performance of WSNs is particularly sensitive to overhead due to the limited bandwidth and power. This paper extends the previous work of energy aware trust derivation scheme using game theoretic approach, by increasing the overall trust derivation process and improving the energy consumption which manages overhead while maintaining adequate security of WSNs. A risk strategy model is first demonstrated to stimulate WSN nodes’ cooperation. Then, a game theoretic approach to secure report reading and trust derivation algorithm is applied to improve the overhead of the process. We show with the help of simulations that our improvement in the overall trust derivation scheme can achieve both intended security and high efficiency suitable for WSN-based IOT networks.

19. Accessing Social Networking Sites using Semantic Web

The popularity of Social Networking Sites (SNSs) has revolutionized human interaction. Social Networking Sites are meant for people to have a social connection with other people with similar interests. A social networking site creates network communication among the user community. It stores user information which can be used for reaching people of similar interest. Though social networking site serves for communication purposes among special interest groups, they do not have a searching option where we can search people or group with certain features. A person can be searched only if we know the name of the person. Here we present a method using Semantic Web to represent and process social network information so that user queries can be better answered.

20. DWT based Invisible Watermarking on Images

The imaging technology is being enhanced day by day, there are a lot of possibilities of reproduction and manipulation of digital data such as digital image, digital audio, and digital video, hence a strong digital copyright mechanism must be produced in place. So the protection of digital data content from unauthorized users and the problem of copyright management plays a very vital role. The Digital watermarking is being used to protect and save the data of researchers and to keep secret information inside a signal which cannot be easily detected by unauthorized person or users. The digital watermarking is a field of data hiding which hide the crucial information or data in the original data for protecting illegal duplication and to restrict disturbance of multimedia data. This research paper presents a survey on the digital image watermarking techniques. The outputs of various digital image watermarking methods have been compared on the basis of the results. A digital watermarking can be described as a stream of bits embedded in a digital file that offers features such as IPM (Intellectual Property Management) and proof of authority of ownership. The digital watermarking has two basic ideas - first is content protection and second is the copyright management. There are various methods to hide information inside an image, audio/video, document etc. But the Image Steganography has its own importance and is most popular among the others. This paper gives a review of various techniques such as image domain and transformation domain algorithms available for implementing Image Steganography. In this paper, an overview of some Digital Watermarking methods is discussed such as Discrete Cosine transform (DCT) and Digital Wavelet Transform (DWT) and its purpose, techniques, limitations and applications.

21. Mitigation of Inrush Current of Transformer using Voltage Sag Compensator

In the power system voltage sag become the important issue for industries. According to the survey, 92% of the interruptions at industrial installations are voltage sag related. In various companies voltage, sag may affect many manufacturers and introduce sufficient losses in the power system. The voltage sag compensator, based on a transformer coupled series connected voltage source inverter, is the most cost-effective solution against voltage sags. A transformer inrush may occur at the start of sag compensator. This over current may damage the inrush protection of the series connected inverter and the transformer output voltage is greatly reduced due to the magnetic saturation. When the compensator restores the load voltage, the flux linkage will be driven to the level of magnetic saturation and severe inrush current occurs. This paper proposes a new technique for mitigating the inrush of the coupling transformer and preserving the output voltage for effective sag compensation.

Cloud computing is a distributed computing paradigm which is considered as the computing platform that is going to be the pioneering field for the next ten years. Apart from several industrial, business applications being deployed, this paradigm is additionally attracting several scientific communities to utilize the services of the cloud for running massive scale knowledge and computation intensive applications like a montage, that is employed in astronomy. workflow is defined as a group of task and dependencies between the tasks that are used for expressing numerous scientific applications. The main issue in running these workflow applications is mapping the tasks of the workflow to an appropriate resource in the cloud environment. Scheduling these workflows in a computing environment. To overcome these failures, the workflow scheduling system should be fault tolerant. The fault tolerance by using replication and resubmission of tasks supported the priority of the tasks. The replication of tasks depends on a heuristic metric that is calculated by finding the trade-off between the replication issue and resubmission issue. As scientific workflows scale to many thousands of distinct tasks, failures because of the software package and hardware faults become progressively common. We study job failure models for data collected from different scientific applications, by our proposed framework. In particular, we show that the Ensemble Learning classifier can accurately predict the failure probability of jobs. Failure prediction models have been implemented through machine learning approaches and evaluated performance metrics. The models allow us to predict job failures for a given execution resource and then use these failure predictions for two higher-level goals: (1) to suggest a better job assignment, and (2) to provide quantitative feedback to the workflow component developer about the robustness of their application codes.

30. Adaptive Packet Filtering Techniques for Linux Firewall

Packet filtering techniques play an important role in many of network devices such as firewalls, IPSec Gateways. Firewall plays an important role in safeguarding any system from any external attacks to the system. It can be used to safeguard hosts as well as networks. This research focuses on studying the performance impact and the sensitivity of the Linux firewall (IP tables) also improve by using this research. And these are improving to become fast. A firewall designed in Linux, the user can edit the source code and change it depending on the security requirements for the LAN. At any time one can configure the firewall to encrypt, to decrypt, accept, deny, or proxy all packets that are being sent between any two systems depending on the rules. On the basis of this, the user can be blocked or given access to a network using a good tree algorithm. There are two approaches for the filtering, first by using the early rejection of unwanted flows without impacting other flows significantly. Second, we present a new packet filtering optimization technique that uses adaptive statistical search trees to utilize important traffic characteristics and minimize the average packet matching time. The proposed techniques timely adapt to changes in the traffic conditions by performing simple calculations for optimizing the search data structure. The proposed techniques can significantly minimize the packet filtering time with reasonable memory space requirements.

33. Convex Optimization Based Adaptive PID Controller in CSTR Plant

PID control is an important ingredient of a distributed control system. The controllers are also embedded in many special purpose control systems. PID control is often combined with logic, sequential functions, selectors, and simple function blocks to build the complicated automation systems used for energy production, transportation, and manufacturing. Many sophisticated control strategies, such as model predictive control, are also organized hierarchically. PID control is used at the lowest level; the multivariable controller gives the set points to the controllers at the lower level. The PID controller can thus be said to be the “bread and butter’ of control engineering. It is an important component in every control engineer’s tool box. PID controllers have survived many changes in technology, from mechanics and pneumatics to microprocessors via electronic tubes, transistors, integrated circuits. The microprocessor has had a dramatic influence on the PID controller

35. A Laboratory Study on Use of Waste Glass Powder as Partial Replacement of Cement in Concrete Production

The Role of Cement Industry in India is significant in the economic development of the country. The cement industry in India is one of the oldest sectors in India. The industry is driven by the immense growth in the housing sector, the infrastructure development, and construction of transportation systems. Indian Cement Industry is the second largest cement producer in the world after China with a total capacity of 151.2 Million Tonnes (MT). The government of India has been giving an immense boost to various infrastructure projects, housing facilities and road networks, the cement industry in India is currently growing at an enviable pace. In the coming years, more growth in the Indian cement industry is expected to come. Efforts are being done to develop some alternative material for cement production using the waste material. The waste glass powder is one such alternative. As glass is nonbiodegradable so it will also help in solving glass related environmental problems. This study was conducted to investigate the effect of using waste glass powder in cement. Laboratory work was conducted to determine the performance of control sample and cement with used waste glass powder. The performance of these types of cement was determined by the Consistency test, Soundness test, Setting time test and Compressive strength test. The Consistency test of cement is determined using Vicat apparatus. Meanwhile, compressive strength test is done to determine the strength of cement. For each type of cement sample, a total of six 70.6mm x 70.6mm x 70.6mm cubes were cast. The cubes were tested at the ages of 7 and 28 days to study the development of compressive strength. The results indicate that the cement with using waste glass powder was able to increase the compressive strength.

38. Online Blood Bank Using Cloud Computing

As we all know the Working of Blood Bank Management System. A blood bank is a cache or bank of blood or blood components, gathered as a result of blood donation or collection, stored and preserved for later use in blood transfusion. The main aim of this project is to save lives of people by providing blood online using technology. Our project Online Blood Bank system using Cloud Computing is developed so that users can view the information of nearby donors, hospitals, blood banks. This project is developed by three perspectives i.e. hospital, blood bank, and patient/donor. We have provided security for authenticated user as a new user have to register according to their type of perspective and existing user have to log in. While registering, to check whether the donor is giving correct information about his blood group we will ask the donor to upload his/ her license or any government id proof on which blood group is mentioned. This project requires an internet connection. We are using the android application to find a nearby donor and to select the nearby hospital online instantly by tracing its location using GPS. We are also proving an alert system for severe accidents as using that function an ambulance will be sent to your destination without any wastage of time. Notification regarding blood donation camps, health check-up drives etc. in the area will also be sent to the registered users. This application reduces the time to a greater extent that is searching for the required blood through blood banks and hospitals. Thus this application provides the required information in less time and also helps in quicker decision making. It basically bridges the gap between donor and the receiver. It provides better blood management and storage.

A farmer may be interested in maximizing his cash income, with a certain emphasis on risk minimization. On the other, at county level especially in a developing country, a planner may aspire for a plan while maximizes food grains production and also to some extent considers employment maximization etc as the goals. Keeping in view the objectives of the study, state-wise secondary data on different variables for the period 1980-81 to 2014-15 were collected from Statistical Abstracts of Punjab, Fertilizer Statistics, Agricultural Statistics at a glance and the reports of the Commission for Agricultural Costs and Prices, published by Ministry of Agriculture By taking its deviations of observed Yt from its estimated value we got the error or the risk coefficients for each year for each crop. These risk coefficients were taken in the matrix formulation in the MOTAD format suggested by Hazell (1971 a and b). To give a meaningful explanation to the level of risk, total mean absolute deviations in gross returns were derived as under: Min A = 1/S Σ│ (chj-gj) xj│ Where A is the minimum average absolute deviation defined as the mean over (h=1………s) years, of the sum of the deviations of gross returns (chj) from the trend in gross returns (gj) multiplied by activity levels x j (j = 1………n).

41. Human Face Detection using Fusion Technique

Nowadays face detection and recognition has become an important tool for identification in industry, Educational institutes, verifying websites, hosting images and social networking site. Face Recognition is nothing but Features such as eyes, nose, lips etc. are extracted from a face, these features are processed and compared with similarly processed faces present in the database. If a face is recognized it is known or the system may show a similar face existing in a database else it is an unknown face. In proposed system, an input image can be taken as a static image or by capturing an image. The system is trying to improve efficiency. The system is using ANN (Artificial Neural Network) and Euclidean Distance Measure is working collaboratively for detection of the face. Over here, features are been marked using ELBP (Elliptical local binary pattern) using specific values. Facial features such as forehead, eyes, nose, lips and cheeks. The system basically converts RGB values of features to HSV (Hue saturation value) and stores this HSV values. These HSV values are compared with the feature values of HSV which are stored in databases and if these values are matched with the database face image values then the face is detected otherwise it is not detected. These features distances are calculated using Euclidean distance algorithm. For improving the efficiency OCA (Optimized comparison algorithm) plays an important role as in OCA two features are taken for comparison with the database image. Two features lips and cheeks are taken into consideration and it is compared with the all the database image. Whatever images have got is further compared with the optimized database and finally, face is recognized otherwise user not found message will be printed. Also for real time application live streaming is facilitated in the system for recognition and continuous processing is done. This way system facilitates to efficiently recognize the faces and also helps to improve the accuracy of the system.

45. Urban Voids - Reclaiming Urban Space

Existences of public spaces in cities are essentials for social interactions to take place, fostering the creation of sustainable, safe and livable cities. Although public spaces are often designed for certain activities, the existence of unplanned spaces and urban voids throughout the city offers an abundance of opportunities. This paper attempts to focus on the concept of urban voids (leftover spaces), identifying and analyzing the type of void that has a great potential for turning into public spaces through placemaking process. Space beneath the flyovers or bridges, the dead parking lots or nonreciprocal street edges are the spaces which are neglected and invisible to the citizens and therefore take away city experimental qualities, thus the attempt is to unearth the potentials of these spaces in context to built environment and surroundings at urban scale and prepare placemaking toolkit for using these spaces as a strategy to increase the public realm.

Novel proton conducting solid polymer electrolytes based on Poly Vinyl Alcohol (PVA) with Malonic acid and PVA with Succinic Acid as a dopant are prepared by solution cast technique with varying doping concentrations up to 40 at.%. The electrical conductivity and optical absorption of pure PVA and doped PVA electrolytes are investigated. DC conductivity behavior is studied in the range 303K to 373K. It is found that PVA: Malonic acid (70:30) & PVA: Succinic acid (70:30) electrolytes exhibited the maximum conductivity. The electrical conductivity initially increased with increasing dopant concentration and then showed a decrease beyond 30 at.% concentration. The increase in conductivity is attributed to the formation of charge transfer complexes while the decrease in concentrations above 30 at.% is due to segregation. Optical absorption studies are made in the wavelength range 200-600nm and the values of optical band gap (direct and indirect) are estimated. The results obtained are presented and discussed.

66. Software Piracy Production System

In this paper entitled as “software piracy protection system” is mainly used to protect the piracy of the system. Now a day’s and a number of users download the software without having the permission of the owner of the software, however, the software have the product key the unknown person also find the key and it’s used that software. A one user pays and download the software and it has them the specific product key of that software. The authorized user share the key to another user (like as friends, relatives and organizations etc), other users are using that software without buying and download. Overcome this problem to implement this project, it is used for the online process. First the user registers to the website when the user downloads the software, first, the user pays the amount for online and then starts the download the software. Mutually it read the MAC (Medium Access Control) address of the corresponding user. Then the owner of the software generates the product key of the corresponding downloaded software and it's sent to the user. After receiving the key, when the user installs the software on the system it asks the product key, the user type that product key. It checks the product key corresponds MAC address. If it is correct the software is installing, else the software is not installed on the system. In this system only allows the authorized person, because it checks the MAC address. The MAC address is the unique address of the system, so the MAC address is not used for another user.

68. Hybrid Algorithm for Color Video Object Detection Using Particle Filters

Colour can provide effective graphic features for tracking nonrigid objects in real-time. However, the color of an object can vary over time dependent on the illumination, the visual angle to handle these appearance change a color based target model must be adapted during temporally stable image observation. The proposed method of this dissertation gives new observation likelihood model with dynamic parameter setting. Experiments show our proposed method is more accurate and more efficient than the traditional color histogram based particle filter. Integration of color distribution into particle filters and shows how these distributions can be adopted over time. A particle filter tracks several hypotheses simultaneously and weights them according to their similarity to the target model. As similarity measures between two color distributions, the popular Bhattacharyya coefficient is applied. In order to update the target model to slowly varying image conditions, Frames, where the object is occluded or too noisy, must be discarded.

In general, the optimization problems contain more than one response, which often conflicts with each other. This paper proposes the TOPSIS-based Taguchi optimization approach to determine the optimization of reverse osmosis process parameters for improving recovery and quality of permeate. The performance criteria are identified for Permeate are COD, Total Solids, Conductivity and Hardness in reverse osmosis process. They are dependent on process parameters Operating Pressure (OP), Potential Hydrogen, Oxidation Reduction Potential and Anti-Scaling Agent. Four factors having three control levels and one factor having three control levels are identified for performance criteria. The temperature is taken as noise factor. The data for permeate, recovery, and quality of permeate obtained by running scenario that combines factor levels in Taguchi design while the signal to noise (S/N) ratios are calculated for the data. After a decision matrix is generated by the S/N ratios, the TOPSIS (Technique for Order Preference by Similarity to an Ideal Solution) method is then used to transform the multi-response problem into a single- response problem. The anticipated improvement rate is also determined by finding the levels of the factors in order to optimize the system which uses Taguchi I’s single response optimization methodology.

71. Exponential H∞ Filtering Design for Discrete-Time Neural Networks Switched Systems with Time-Varying Delay

This paper deals with the exponential H∞ filtering problem for discrete-time neural networks switched singular systems with time-varying delays. The main purpose of this paper is to design a linear mode-dependent filter such that the resulting filtering error system is regular, causal, and exponentially stable with a prescribed H-infinity performance bound. In addition, the decay rate of the filtering error dynamics can also be tuned. By constructing an appropriate Lyapunov functional together with some zero inequalities and using the average dwell time scheme, a novel delay-dependent sufficient condition for the solvability of the H-infinity filtering problem is derived. Based on this condition, the desired filter gains can be obtained by solving a set of linear matrix inequalities (LMIs). A numerical example is presented to show the effectiveness of the proposed design method.

74. Thermal Analysis of Journal Bearing Using CFD Software for Performance Enhancement

Abstract- Hydrodynamic journal bearings are used in machinery which is rotating at high speeds and heavy loads for work done. This results in increase temperature rise in the lubricant film which significantly affects off the bearing. The thermo-hydrodynamic analysis should be carried out in order to obtain the realistic performance parameters of the journal bearing. Journal bearing models are developed for different speeds and eccentricity ratios to study the interaction between the fluid and elastic behavior of the bearing. Thermo-hydrodynamic analysis of circular journal bearing has been simulated by using Computational Fluid Dynamics approach. This approach solves the three-dimensional Navier-stokes equation to predict the bearing performance parameters such as the pressure and temperature of the lubricant along the profile of the bearing. The CFD technique has been applied through ANSYS Fluent software. The oil flow is assumed to be laminar and the steady state condition has been assumed in the current work. The effect of variation of pressure and temperature are considered during the study. Journal bearing models are developed for different speeds and eccentricity ratios to study the interaction between the fluid and elastic behavior of the bearing. By applied the fins on journal bearing we improved the efficiency of journal bearing

77. Modelling and Simulation of PID and Fuzzy Based Controller of a Nonlinear Liquid Level Process Using Labview

The system under investigation is a coupled tank system of a common process in industrial control. The basic control principle of the coupled tank system is to maintain a constant level of the liquid in the tank when there are an inflow and outflow of liquid in the tank and outflow of liquid out of the tank respectively. The control of liquid level in tanks and flow between tanks is a problem in the process technologies. The process technologies require liquids to be pumped, stored in tanks, and then pumped to another tank systematically. In this work, an efficient elementary idea about the controller system and liquid level control for the tank system has been presented. The liquid level control system controls the level of the liquid whatever the disturbances, such as level change, increase/decrease of outflow and interaction between the tanks. The result shown in the project work is encouraging & promising. The main objective of this project is to determine the mathematical model of a coupled tank system using mass balance technique. It follows by designing the controllers consisting of PID and Fuzzy logic controllers for the system. At the final stage of this project, the usage of the controller in industrial applications is compared and analyzed. The reasons behind the selection of LabVIEW software among other is because of its strong graphical interface, user-friendly tools, and highly understandable approach.

Data deduplication is a specific form of compression where redundant data is eliminated and has been used in cloud computing to improve storage utilization. In the deduplication process, duplicate data is deleted, leaving only one copy of the data to be stored. In the traditional encryption, different users required to encrypt their data with own keys. So different ciphertexts are produced, it makes difficult to deduplication. The new scheme has been proposed, convergent encryption, to protect the confidentiality of sensitive data while making deduplication is possible. In this paper, this convergent key managers efficiently and reliability. Firstly in this paper baseline approach is used in which a master key means the encrypted convergent key is kept individually and outsourcing them to cloud. Each user has a master key, increase the enormous number of keys. And users also want to protect the master key. A new approach is proposed in which Dickey is used in which user share key on multiple servers, he do not require manage the key. Ramp Secret Sharing scheme is used to implement Dickey in which each key distributed on multiple servers.

One of the drawbacks of these power grids is that out of the total power production, 26% of energy gets lost because of various reasons such as power theft, blackouts, etc. To fulfill the continuous drastic demand of energy production and consumption, a new generation power grid is required, which should include communication and information technology (ICT) along with distributed power generation (like solar power and wind power). The concept of a new generation smart power grid, so-called Smart Grid, has been gaining continuous rapid attention worldwide. Smart Grid is considered as a system that can supply bi-directional flow of electricity and information, with better power grid reliability, security, and efficiency of the electrical system from generation to transmission to distribution. To meet the requirement of Smart Grid we require the most fundamental components like Smart Meter, in the intelligent energy networks (IENs). Smart Energy meters are used to control and monitor home appliances and other devices by providing two-way communications among them. This paper reviews the basics of Smart grid and development and deployment of communication technologies used among various Smart Grid components/networks and provides an insight into the current research on Smart meters with some guidelines and future directions for IENs.

104. Soil Pollution and Soil Remediation Techniques

In a general sense, soil pollution definition is the presence of toxic chemicals (pollutants or contaminants) in soil in high enough concentrations to be of risk to human health and/or ecosystem. Additionally, even when the levels of contaminants in soil are not of risk, soil pollution may occur simply due to the fact that the levels of the contaminants in soil exceed the levels that are naturally present in soil (in the case of contaminants which occur naturally in soil). Soil pollutants include a large variety of contaminants or chemicals (organic and inorganic), which could be both naturally occurring in soil and man-made. In both cases, the main soil pollution causes are the human activities (i.e., the accumulation of those chemicals in soil at levels of health risk is due to human activities such as accidental leaks and spills, dumping, manufacturing processes, etc.) 125 major contaminated sites across the country 175 million hectare (out of 329 million ha) are considered degraded 40 % of chemical fertilizers leached into soil 14 States are affected by Fluoride contamination • > 65 percent of India’s villages are exposed to residual pesticides risk Heavy metals beyond permissible limits affecting GW of 40 districts from 13 states. This is possible due to the complex soil environment involving the presence of other chemicals and natural conditions which may interact with the released pollutants Various causes for soil pollution are detailed below. Of these cases, sites are important causes of soil pollution in the urban area due to their almost ubiquitous nature. In general, any chemical handled at construction sites may pollute the soil. However, the higher risk comes from those chemicals that may travel easier through the air (as fine particulate matter) and which are resistant to degradation and bioaccumulate in living organisms.

120. Cooperative Black Hole Attack Prevention by Particle Swarm Optimization with Multiple Swarms

MANET (Mobile Ad Hoc Network) is a type of ad hoc network that can change locations and configure itself, because of moving to nodes. As MANETs are mobile in nature, they use wireless connections to connect various networks without infrastructure or any centralized administration. Open medium, dynamic topology, distributed cooperation are the characteristics of MANET and hence ad hoc networks are open to different types of security attacks. A Grey hole is a node that selectively drops and forwards data packets after advertises itself as having the shortest path to the destination node in response to a route request message. Our mechanism helps to protect the network by detecting and reacting to malicious activities of any node. The results enable us to minimize the attacks on integrated MANET-Internet communication efficiently. The simulation will be carried out by using network simulator tool so as to address the problem of detection & prevention of gray hole attack in mobile ad-hoc network.

122. Efficacy of Extra-Oral Maxillary Nerve Block Technique Using Frontozygomatic Approach

BACKGROUND Pain control is an integral part of minor oral surgery and maxillary/mandibular nerve blocks have proved promising in achieving the same. Although intra-oral techniques of maxillary nerve block are common and are widely used, there are certain inherent disadvantages and potential complications. Less commonly described in the literature, the extraoral techniques have a wide spectrum of indications as well as can be more advantageous than the intraoral approach [3]. Hence the aim of present study is to evaluate the feasibility and the efficacy of the extra-oral maxillary nerve block using Frontozygomatic approach. MATERIALS AD METHOD The study was conducted on 30 patients reporting to the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, V. S. Dental College and Hospital, Bangalore, Karnataka from September 2015 to July 2016 taking into consideration the exclusion and inclusion criteria extraoral maxillary nerve block using frontozygomatic approach was administered. Intraoperative and postoperative complications which may include hematoma, ecchymosis, visual disturbance, limitation of mouth opening or deviation of the lower jaw and Brain Stem Anesthesia immediately following the injections. The data collected was analyzed statistically by using descriptive statistics and percentage; correlations were computed using the student Chi-Square test for proportions. RESULTS Successful anesthesia was secured in a first attempt in 27 patients while in 1 patient, the procedure had to be repeated using local infiltration due to positive aspiration using the Frontozygomatic approach owing to the difficulty in reaching the target site. In 2 patients the stopper over the spinal needle reached the sphenoid bone at 30mm which is 20mm short of the actual penetration of the needle and the reason suspected to be the anatomical variations. A majority of the patients i.e., 53.3 % scored 0–2 (no pain) on visual analog scale (VAS) while 11 patients experienced mild pain and only 3 patients experienced a moderate degree of pain. Subjective symptoms were reported in 22.73 s (mean value) and 18.3 s (mean value) in the palate and the infraorbital fossa respectively. Peak effect of anesthesia was noted in 62.8, 39 and 31.71 sec (all values expressed as mean) in the palate, infraorbital fossa, and posterior superior alveolar areas respectively. CONCLUSION Although with only dental extraction as the procedure of choice, the present study has favored the frontozygomatic angle approach for the maxillary nerve block as simple, safe, efficacious and associated with the minimum and clinically mild complications.

About 80,000 species of plants are utilized for treating various diseases in different systems of Indian medicine. Many pharmaceutical companies giving importance in plant-derived drugs mainly due to the current widespread belief that 'Green Medicine' is safe and more dependable than the costly synthetic drugs, which have adverse side effects. The objective of the study is isolation of phytochemical active constituents, antidiabetic, antimicrobial and antioxidant activities of the rare antidiabetic medicinal plant Epaltes divaricate (Linn.) since the selected plant has varied medicinal properties used in Ayurveda. This valuable plant is used in traditional ayurvedic medicine to alleviate jaundice, diabetes mellitus, urethral discharges and acute dyspepsia. It is also regarded as a diaphoretic, diuretic and a stimulating expectorant. The methanol extract of Epaltes divaricate L. showed excellent antimicrobial activity against bacteria and fungi. Phytochemical analysis was carried out for the same extract by two different standard methods and which confirmed the presence of steroids, triterpenoids, and phenolic compounds. Decreasing of postprandial hyperglycemia is a therapeutic approach for treating diabetes mellitus. This can be achieved in current trends through the inhibition of carbohydrate hydrolyzing enzymes such as alpha-glucosidase and alpha amylase. Agents with α-amylase and α-glucosidase inhibitory activity are very useful as oral anti-hypoglycemic agents for the control of hyperglycemia in patients who have diabetes mellitus. In this study, the methanol extract exhibited above 50% of inhibition in all standard concentration.

130. Human Depth Perception

We introduce the perceptual issues relevant to seeing three dimensions in digital imagery. Technological constraints like limited field-of-view and spatial resolution prevent the display of images that match the real world in all respects. Therefore, only some elements of real world depth perception are utilized when viewing 3D CGI. Depth Cue Theory is the main theory of depth perception. It states that different sources of information, or depth cues, combine to give a viewer the 3D layout of a scene. Alternatively, the Ecological Theory takes a generalized approach to depth perception. It states that the HVS relies on more than the image on the retina; it requires an examination of the entire state of the viewer and their surroundings (i.e., the context of viewing). In this paper, we rely on Depth Cue Theory, although we acknowledge the importance of visual context where appropriate. As seen later, the type of visual environment and the viewer’s task play a significant part in the effectiveness of a 3D VDS. Both theories assert that there are some basic sources of information about 3D layout. These are generally divided into three types: pictorial, coulometer and stereo depth cues. The perceptual process by which these cues combine to form a sense of depth is a complicated and outdebated issue. Different approaches to measuring the ability to perceive depth have also been posited. We discuss these issues with respect to CGI.

134. Robust H∞ Control of Discrete-Time Uncertain Recurrent Neural Networks with Discrete and Distributed Interval Time-Varying Delays

This paper is concerned with the problem of delay-dependent H∞ control of discrete-time uncertain recurrent neural networks with time-varying delays. The neural network is subject to parameter uncertainty, and time-varying delay. For the robust H∞ stabilization problem, a state feedback controller is designed to ensure the global robust stability of the closed-loop system about its equilibrium point for all admissible uncertainties. By using the Laypunov-Krasovskii functional, a linear matrix inequality (LMI) approach is developed to establish sufficient conditions. A simulation example is exploited to show the usefulness of the derived LMI-based stability conditions.

151. Impact of Autonomous Learning on the Achievement Level of Students of IXth Grade

The word autonomy was derived from ancient Greek words autonomia and nomos which means "self" and "law" respectively, hence when combined understood to mean "one who gives oneself one's own law is a concept found in moral, political, and bioethical philosophy”. Within these contexts, it is the capacity of a rational individual to make an informed, un-coerced decision. In moral and political philosophy, autonomy is often used as the basis for determining moral responsibility and accountability for one's actions. One of the best known philosophical theories of autonomy was developed by Kant. In medicine, respect for the autonomy of patients is an important goal, though it can conflict with a competing ethical principle, namely beneficence. Autonomy is also used to refer to the self-government of the people. This paper is an attempt to understand how this concept of autonomy actually works with students, how the students’ performance is influenced by the concept of autonomy.
