Energy Proficient Reliable Rim Routing Technique for Wireless Heterogeneous Sensor Networks Lifespan Fortification

Author(s): S. G. Susila, J. Arputhavijayaselvi

Sensor nodes are mainly shielded in the field with limited power supply. In Wireless Sensor Networks, there must be a requirement of an efficient power management, because sensor nodes are deployed in unman attended area with non-rechargeable batteries. Power management can be done by different methods of routing protocols. The proposed Reliable Rim Routing (3R) technique Continue reading

Vaccines and Antibodies for Therapeutic Use in Cancers

Author(s): G. P. Talwar, Jagdish C. Gupta, M. Diwan1, J. Frick, S. K. Sharma, S. N. Wadhwa, R. M. Gupta, S. K. Gupta, Shilpi Purswani, Hemant K. Vyas

This review describes briefly the beneficial use of two vaccines developed by us for treatment of cancers. The vaccine against Luteinizing Hormone Releasing Hormone (LHRH) is effective in carcinoma of prostate as well as in breast cancers dependent on androgens and estrogens respectively. LHRH being identical in both males and females, the same vaccine is usable in both Prostate and Breast steroid hormones-dependent-cancers. Monoclonal antibodies are finding therapeutic utility in several cancers, and many have received Drugs Regulatory approval. Continue reading

On the Charges and Currents in the Quantum Field Theory

Author(s): Daniel Sepunaru

This paper is concerned with the determination of currents and charges in hypercomplex extensions of the Feynman-Dyson derivation of the Maxwell-Faraday equations. We analyze the appearance of charges and currents in non-Abelian versions of that approach: SU(2), SU(3) and G2. The structure constants of G2 Lie algebra are computed explicitly. Finally, we suggest a seven-dimensional treatment of color. Continue reading

A Unique Approach to Epilepsy Classification from EEG Signals Using Dimensionality Reduction and Neural Networks

Author(s): Harikumar Rajaguru, Sunil Kumar Prabhakar

Characterized by recurrent and rapid seizures, epilepsy is a great threat to the livelihood of the human beings. Abnormal transient behaviour of neurons in the cortical regions of the brain leads to a seizure which characterizes epilepsy. The physical and mental activities of the patient are totally dampened with this epileptic seizure. A significant clinical tool for the study, analysis and diagnosis of the epilepsy is electroencephalogram (EEG). To detect such seizures, Continue reading

Is Climate Change a Moral Issue? Effects of Egoism and Altruism on Pro-Environmental Behavior

Author(s): Igor Knez

Do value orientations of egoism and altruism affect pro-environmental behaviour? The answer is “yes”, according to the results obtained. Corresponding to the self-benefit goal hypothesis, egoistic individuals (rated “high” on egoism) were shown to perceive having less control; that is, they believed that it was too difficult as well as pointless to do much about environmental issues. They were also less willing to pay higher taxes and prices as well as cut their standard of living for Continue reading

Spatial Effect Research on Educational Output and Economic Growth in China

Author(s): Wuyuan Sun, Jiayun Ma

This thesis is to study spatial effect of education output on economic growth through the use of spatial measurement technique. According to the study: there’s the presence of spatial spillover effects in human capital, economic growth, and others; in previous years, human capital depended on mainly the employers with junior school education or below; in recent years, with the reduction of employers with junior school education or below, employers with regular higher Continue reading

Appropriate Needle Lengths Determined Using Ultrasonic Echograms for Intramuscular Injections in Japanese Infants

Author(s):Tetsuo Nakayama, Urara Kohdera, Motoko Fujino, Toshihiro Tanaka, Keitaro Yatabe, Tomoyuki Hashiguchi, Tomohide Sato, Minoru Kino

Adjuvanted vaccines are recommended for administration through an intramuscular route. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has recommended the anterolateral thigh using a 22 – 25-G 25-mm (1 inch) needle for infants, injected at a 90° into the skin surface, and using a 16 mm (5/8 inch) for newborns. Appropriate needle lengths may differ depending on racial backgrounds. In the present study, the thickness of the epidermis and lengths from the skin surface to the muscle fascia and bone were measured using ultrasonic Continue reading

Impact of Different Parameters on Life Cycle Analysis, Embodied Energy and Environmental Emissions for Wind Turbine System

Author(s): Nazia Binte Munir, Ziaul Huque, Raghava R. Kommalapati

Due to the rapid depletion of fossil fuel reserves and increasing concern for climate change as a result of greenhouse gas effect, every country is looking for ways to develop eco-friendly renewable energy sources. Wind energy has become a good option due to its comparative economic advantages and environment friendly aspects. But there is always an ongoing debate if wind energy is as green as it seems to appear. Wind turbines once installed do not produce any greenhouse gases during operation, but it can and may produce significant emissions during manufacture, transport, installation and disposal stages. To determine the exact amount of emissions, it is necessary to consider all the stages for a wind Continue reading

Prevalence of Mycobacterium tuberculosis Strains Isolated from Both Pulmonary and Extra Pulmonary Samples and Their Resistance to Rifampicin: A Study from Kolkata and Surrounding Suburbs

Author(s): Soma Chakraborty, Arindam Chakraborty, Tathagata Talukder, Mita Mukherjee, Tridip Chatterjee

Tuberculosis (TB) is one of the major causes of morbidity and mortality worldwide. In India, nearly 1.8 million new cases of TB are reported annually, which accounts for a fifth of new cases in the world—greater than in any other country. Anti-tubercular drugs (ATDs) have been used for decades, and widespread resistance to them is a very serious public health concern in any part of the world. Aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of Rifampicin (the first line Anti-TB drug) resistance among both pulmonary and extra-pulmonary samples tested positive for Mycobacterium tuberculosis and thereby predict the prevalence of Multi-drug resistant (MDR) tuberculosis in Kolkata and its Suburban Continue reading
