Abstract: A study was conducted to assess the effect of various techniques of processing (decortication, toasting and boiling in tap water) on proximate, anti-nutritional factor (ANF), amino acid and mineral composition of Highworth, variety of Lablab purpureus seed. Processing reduced the levels of all the ANFs evaluated in the present study. Boiling in water, was determined to be the best method, reduced tannins, alkaloids, oxalates, Trypsin inhibitors and HCN by 37, 33, 38, 100 and 89% respectively. Processing also resulted in reductions in crude protein, crude fibre, ether extracts, ash and gross energy by 8, 14, 17, 23, 10 and 8%, while NFE increased by 10%. The levels of nutrients in boiled lablab, however, compared favourably with feed grade soybean, while being likely to be much cheaper.

Abstract: These days, automotive has turned into a stand out amongst the most well-known modes of transportation on the grounds that a large number of Malaysians could bear to have an auto. There are numerous decisions of innovations in auto that have in the market. One of the engineering is voice controlled framework. Voice Recognition is the procedure of consequently perceiving a certain statement talked by a specific speaker focused around individual data included in discourse waves. This paper is to make an car controlled by voice of human. An essential pre-processing venture in Voice Recognition systems is to recognize the vicinity of noise. Sensitivity to speech variability, lacking recognition precision, and helplessness to mimic are among the principle specialized obstacles that keep the far reaching selection of speech-based recognition systems. Voice recognition systems work sensibly well with a quiet conditions however inadequately under loud conditions or in twisted channels. The key focus of the project is to control an electric car starter system.

ABSTRACT: In our day to day life, yoga plays an important role to improve physical and mental health. Normal people can manage their schedule and attend yoga classes but the problem for blind people arises. We need to provide special trainer to train blind or low vision people. Due to busy schedule of today’s generation, no one can dedicate sufficient time to provide training. So here we have developed an application which can train and teach this exergame to the blind and low vision people by using kinect, developed by Microsoft, which acts as a yoga instructor, teaches yoga poses and has customized auditory-only feedback based on skeletal tracking. We found participants enjoyed the exergame and the extra auditory feedback helped in understanding each pose. The report discusses the postulates of yoga as science of mind. The yogic practices not only server as prevention and cure of mental disorder but also result in mental piece and higher psychic and spiritual attainments. In the yogic psycho-physiology of the pranic system, the body, mind and spirit work in an integrated manner. Expansion of consciousness takes place through the awakening of the of the chakras. The report reports findings based on scientific data to demonstrate the psycho-therapeutic use of yoga, and underlines some simple yogic techniques for mental health.

Abstract: Gravity is a property of space-time fabric and not a universal force of attraction between two objects with mass. Considering that energy is distributed in space-time while mass replaces space-time from its place producing a denser or warped space-time around the mass, problems regarding the nature of gravity can be addressed. This paper talks about understanding the nature of gravity as a virtual force created by warped space time and also explains what gives a particle its mass. Irrespective of mass, gravity can exist anywhere in the universe, but can be experienced only by the presence of mass or by distributing of energy through it. Mass is a void in space-time, but in real world matter exists in their smallest form as sub-atomic particles, separated with a space-time. If a particle is said to have a greater energy then it has created a relatively bigger void in space-time.

Abstract: The study area (South western part of Volta River Basin of Ghana), covering an area of 8570 km2, which is one-eleventh the area of the Volta River basin of Ghana, has been subjected to numerous academic research works but geophysical survey works because of virtual perceptive reasons. It is now believed to overly mineral-rich geological structures, hence, the use of magnetic and gravity survey methods to bring out these mineral-rich geological structures.Geographically, it (study area) is located at the south western part of the Voltaian basin at latitudes 07o 00’ N and 08o 00’ N and longitudes 02o 00’ W and 01o 00’ W respectively. Airborne gravity and magnetic survey methods were employed in the data collection. The field data correction and error reduction were applied to the two raw data on the field after which, Geosoft Oasis Montaj 7.01, Encom Profile Analysis (P.A) 11 and 13, Model Vision 12 and ArcGIS 10.0 were used to process, enhance (e.g. reduce to pole at low latitude, first vertical derivative etc.), model the reduced and corrected airborne magnetic data, and also, to produce maps from them (data). Low-to-moderate-to-high gravity and magnetic anomalies were obtained in the complete Bouguer anomaly (CBA) and total magnetic intensity (TMI) reduced to pole at low latitude with many of these anomalies trending NE-SW by which the Birimian Metasediments and Metavolcanics can be said to be part of the causative structures of these anomalies with cross-cut NW-SE faults. From the quantitative point of view, the intrusive granitic bodies of the study area have a mean depth location of 1.7 km, while the isolated anomaly is located at a depth of 1.4 km (computed from Euler deconvolution). The NE-SW trending anomalies show the trend direction of their causative structures which are the basement rocks and the basinal intrusive bodies.

Abstract: Sodium cobaltite (NaCo2O4) nano crystalline thermoelectric materials were obtained using electrospinning technique. Electrospunnanofibers was calcined at 800 oC and sintered at 850 oC in open air atmopshere. We have investigated the microstructure and thermoelectric properties of the sintered and unsintered samples for analysis sintering effect. The calcined sodium cobaltite crystal structures were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Products molded by cold pressing method, and one of the pellets were sintered at 850 oC by conventional sintering, the other not subjected to the sintering process. Thermoelectric properties of the both materials were measured by PPMS system in the temperature range 10-300 K. The dimensionless figure of merit (ZT) values at 300 K is 4×〖10〗^(-5)and 9×〖10〗^(-5) for sintered and unsintered samples respectively. Although conventional sintered technique increase thermoelectric power and thermal conductivity approximately % 50 but it 4-fold decreased electrical conductivity.

Abstract: The study comprises the effect of different bleaching parameters on scoured single jersey cotton fabrics. Three different concentrations (1.8 g/L, 2.0 g/L and 2.2 g/L) taken from 5% stock solution of hydrogen peroxide were considered for the experiment. In each concentration, bleaching was performed in four individual temperatures (78°C, 88°C, 98°C and 108°C). In each of the temperatures bleaching were continued for four individual time period (20, 30, 40 and 50 minutes). The weight of sample fabric was 12.5 grams and 1:10 liquor ratio was maintained in each operation. The bleached samples were tested in a reflectance spectrophotometer (datacolor 650) and also their bursting strengths were found from an Autoburst instrument following ISO 13038-1 method. The results show that bursting strength and whiteness index have an inverse relation between themselves. For the nominated concentrations of peroxide, 88°C to 98°C temperature with 30 to 40 minutes time duration is suggested as the optimum bleaching parameter for knitted cotton fabric.

Abstract: Cluster analysis is used to classify similar objects under same group. It is one of the most important data mining methods. However, it fails to perform well for big data due to huge time complexity. For such scenarios parallelization is a better approach. Mapreduce is a popular programming model which enables parallel processing in a distributed environment. But, most of the clustering algorithms are not “naturally parallelizable” for instance Genetic Algorithms. This is so, due to the sequential nature of Genetic Algorithms. This paper introduces a technique to parallelize GA based clustering by extending hadoop mapreduce. An analysis of proposed approach to evaluate performance gains with respect to a sequential algorithm is presented. The analysis is based on a real life large data set.

Abstract: The existence of the bureaucracy and the device has a very important role and vital in the life of modern man. This is because the bureaucracy is interpreted as an official institution that performs the functions of service to the public needs. Internal conditions bureaucratic organization itself does not stand alone, but it has the internal and external sustainability. One of the most prominent aspect in the review of the bureaucratic organization is bureaucratic behavior. Good bureaucracy is based on bureaucratic behavior professional. Behavior embodiment bureaucracy itself can be grouped into four (4) main models, ie models autocratic, custodial models, models of supportive and collegial models. One of the flagship program of work undertaken by the Building Movement Bombana is Bombana with Ridha Allah (GLAD). In a way, this program found some key problems in the realm of bureaucratic organization studies. Some issues such as village-level bureaucrats dependence greatly to the district government, the low professionalism and competence of the bureaucratic apparatus, and the difficulty of implementation of inter-agency coordination is still a topic interesting study. The problem of bureaucratic behavior is a complex element that can be influenced by factors that are subjectively individual and that associated with the condition in which the bureaucratic organization is located. Therefore, the condition of the organization is divided into four (4) elements, namely the organizational structure, organizational culture, policies and practices of human resources, as well as the design work which are all expected to shape the behavior of bureaucracy Fun program.

Abstract: Agroindustrial derivatives are alternative nutritional sources employed in bioprocesses that reduce costs and corroborate with social sustainability. In this study, alternative carbon (sugarcane juice, sugarcane molasses and soy molasses) and nitrogen sources (corn steep liquor, soy protein and whey protein) were evaluated for hyaluronic acid production by Streptococcus zooepidemicus ATCC 39920. The medium containing sugarcane molasses archived high yield of hyaluronic acid (0.066 g.g-1), when compared to the medium composed of glucose or sucrose. The replacement of yeast extract by soy protein was also effective for the production of the polymer resulting in 0.219 g.L-1. In general, the organic acids production was also evaluated and the results showed that the main metabolic products were lactate. In contrast, the acetate synthesis was detected only in the medium containing yeast extract. This study showed that sugarcane molasses is a promising carbon source for the hyaluronic acid production. This is the first study in which a culture media containing sugarcane molasses, a cheap substrate extensively produced in Brazil, has been successfully used for the microbial hyaluronic acid production.

Abstract: Financial risk fluctuations have a significant effect on overall economy. Macroeconomic variables and stock return are related to each other. Financial risk and share price behavior has been investigated in this dissertation. For this purpose, monthly data from 2003 to 2012 and annual data for period of 2003 to 2012 has been used. The stock return data of 115 companies has been used as dependent variable where as exchange rare, interest rate, financial exposure, firm size, total risk, growth rate and profitability has been used as independent variable. This study employs multivariate regression analysis. This study is focused on financial risk and it impact on firm through different dimensions, first on industry level , then on firm level and lastly analysis for exporting and non-exporting firms has been done. The industry level analysis shows that statistically significant negative relationship exists between exchange rate, interest rate and stock return. The relationship of total risk, foreign exposure, firm size and growth rate is found insignificant with industry returns. The firm level analysis is done from different dimensions. The interest rate is negatively related to monthly returns of the firm and this relationship is found significant. The relationship of total risk, foreign exposure, firm size and growth rate is found insignificant with firm level stock returns. For exporting and non-exporting firms, the study shows positive relationship between interest rate and firm stock returns, and this relation is stronger in exporting firms as compare to other firms operating in same industry. Whereas negative relationship between exchange rate and firm stock return. Thus this dissertation is a spatial extension of the previous researches. Instead of taking the all monetary variables like previous research, this research’s focus on firm analysis by using two factor model.

Abstract: Chickens deaminate excess amino acids and excrete the derived nitrogen in the urine mainly as uric acid, which is readily converted to ammonia. This gas has adverse effects on the health of chickens and air quality. Production of ammonia and its effect on the growth of chickens was monitored at a poultry house of House Number 5743, Mukuba Road in Riverside, Kitwe from 21st August, 2013 to 6th June, 2014. Two batches of fifty day old hybrid broiler chicks were bred in house A and B (5 m x 7 m) under the same management system in three phases. House A chicks were fed on Novatek feed only, while those in house B were fed on Novatek feed blended with 0.5%, 0.7% and 0.9% (w/w) bamboo charcoal of ≤600µm particle size. Weekly mass recording by the use of a weighing scale provided a measure of growth rate while analysis of the excreta using Kjeldahl method at the Copperbelt University and Nkana Water and Sewerage Company laboratories in Kitwe provided a means of monitoring the amount of ammonia generated. Chickens in house B showed a slightly faster growth rate from 28 to 42 days than those in house A. The f-test results from the study showed that there was a significant effect of ammonia concentration on chicken growth rate (P<0.05). The results obtained from excreta-litter mixture analysis showed a significant adsorption of ammonia by bamboo charcoal (P<0.05). The study further indicated a direct dependency of ammonia concentration in excreta on chicken age, moisture content and pH.

Abstract: Clean water is a basic need of every individual. Today in numerous cities of India large number of waste water is produced. Such waste water is polluting natural water bodies like rivers, lakes etc. Hence waste water filtration & waters final purification is need of hour. In conventional type of filters, when strainer gets clogged we have to manually clean it, which takes time & filtration processes stops during cleaning process. While in ‘Self-Cleaning Basket Strainer’ when strainer gets clogged, a pressure difference is created between inlet & outlet nozzle, which is sensed by the differential pressure gauges. A differential pressure gauge activates backwash assembly which automatically cleans the strainer. Hence ‘Self-Cleaning Basket Strainer’ is used to save cleaning time & it automates the filtering process.

Abstract: Proximate chemical, amino acid, anti- nutritional factors (ANF) and mineral composition of Highworth, Rongai White and Rongai Brown varieties of Lablab purpureus seed were determined. Lablab purpureus seed irrespective of the variety was lower in crude protein but higher in crude fibre than FFSB. The three varieties of lablab seed analyzed in the present study contained between 7.22-9.23% of crude fibre while the crude protein content ranged between 24.88-34.33g/100g. The ether extract (EE) content (2.99-5.87%) of lablab seed is low compare to other legume seeds such as soyabeans and groundnuts. Due to this low oil content, lablab seed may not be suitable as a commercial source of oil, reducing the competition for lablab seed from vegetable oil industries. The natural limiting amino acid lysine in cereals is satisfactorily high (mean value is above FAO reference pattern) in lablab seed. The mean values of the essential amino acids (lysine, histidine, valine, methionine, isoleucine, leucine and phenylalanine) in lablab seed are higher than the values reported for FFSB. This suggests that lablab seed can be exploited in feed formulation as an excellent source of amino acid. The aniti-nutritional factors identified in lablab seed are trypsin inhibitors, hydrogen cyanide, phytate, tannin, oxalates, alkaloids, saponin and haemagglutinins which must be deactivated to improve seed utilization. Lablab seed contained 0.3-5.3g/100g of major and 14.9-54.5mg/kg of minor minerals assayed, and this is also low compared to soyabean and groundnut.

ABSTRACT: The current focus on change management practices in the Public sector has been significantly induced by new public management paradigm shift that places heavy emphasis on managing for results. This is an emerging issue particularly in public secondary schools. The purpose of this study was to relate public secondary schools with the practice of generally established change management best practices. The specific objectives of the study were to establish change management practices adopted by Public Secondary Schools in Siaya Sub County. The study population consisted of all the 38 Public Secondary Schools in Siaya Sub County which necessitated the adoption of a descriptive cross-sectional survey design and the school managers were to respond to questionnaire items designed to address aspects of best change management practices. The researcher wanted to find out the extent to which the schools practiced these virtues. The school managers stated that they moderately practiced aspects of planning, committed leadership, workforce alignment, stakeholder involvement and had defined governance structures in their institutions. However, the extents were varying from one school to the next. Multiple regressions were run using the change management practices dimensions established against performance dimensions of student enrolment, participation in co-curricular activities, KCSE achievement, financial management, and provision of teaching and learning resources and development of school infrastructure. The study found out that change management practices adopted by the institutions significantly influenced performance. The study recommends that there is need to break from status quo and bureaucratic inefficiency associated with public institutions and be ready to implement comprehensive change management practices to maximize on resource utilization our public educational institutions. The study would contribute towards broadening the knowledge base of various education sector stakeholders towards embracing change management best practices which are result based. Further research could be conducted to establish how other change management practices other than the ones mentioned could influence performance. A larger target population could also be studied to make the findings more representative.

Abstract: The Keffi area of North Central Nigeria hosts numerous pegmatite bodies which are related to the surrounding granitic intrusions islocated about 45 km east of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja Nigeria. Petrological investigation of the pegmatites and surrounding host rocks aimed at characterising and understanding field relations and mode of emplacement of the rocks with a view to assess their mineralisation potentials were carried out. From the field observations the pegmatites were characterised into: (1) Pelitic schist-amphibolite hosted pegmatites and (2) Granitoids (orthogneisses) hosted pegmatites, and the granites into (1) the Bakin Ayini (biotite) granites, (2) the Angwan Madugu (biotite-muscovite) granites and (3) the Sabongida (biotite-muscovite) granites. It is clear that those discordantly emplaced in pelitic schists varied in shape and size with length and width ranging from (400-2000m) and (2-20m) respectively, some are huge, isolated, sill-like and flat-lying, whilst those hosted in orthogneisses are narrow, ranging in length (40-1000m) and width (1-4m), crosscutting and vertically oriented along shear zones, which suggest passive emplacement

Abstract: Tillage practices have often been considered as limited factor to crop production in heavy clay soil. Experiments were conducted for two seasons (1998 and 1999) to investigate the effects of six tillage methods on sorghum and maize establishment and yield, weeds control and some soil physical properties. The technical performance of chisel plow and disc harrow was also investigated. Tillage methods comprehend chisel plow, disc harrow, disc plow and minimum tillage. Minimum tillage was significantly higher in all weed parameters compared to other methods. No significant differences were observed for crop establishment, plant population, total dry biomass, thousand seed weight and grain yield for both crops. Increasing the depth of chiseling and harrowing from 10 cm to 20 cm significantly (P<0.01) increased draft and drawbar power. Travel reduction under harrowing to 20 cm resulted in highly significant differences (P 0.01) compared to other treatments. The effective field capacity, field efficiency and fuel consumption rates of chisel and harrowing at different depths of operation showed no significant differences. However, minimum tillage (ridging only) was the lease in fuel consumption and cost, 3.5 l ha-1 and 2 US$ ha-1, respectively. The above findings indicate that although all tillage methods gave fairly similar results in all tested parameters, minimum tillage could be recommended and adopted for sorghum and maize production in Gezira Vertisols as it was less expensive implement.

Abstract: The paper presents the numerical studies for damage detection in beam structure with mode shape curvatures and its spatial wavelet transform. A small simulated perturbation in the form of transverse slots to be treated as damage in beams and a three stage damage detection process for amplifying the discontinuityis proposed here. Vibration data obtained from the perturbed system is processed for mode shapes which are converted into mode shape curvatures and subsequently fed to the wavelet transform. The study revealsthat the proposed transformation is better in sensitizing damage-induced features than the classical approach based alone on bare modal data. It is observed that the decomposition of the spatial signal into wavelet details can identify the damage position in beam like structure by showing relatively larger peaks at the position of the damage.

ABSTRACT: The exploration and production of petroleum and its subsequent transportation and distribution in the Niger Delta have led to pollution of aquatic habitats with serious threats to associated flora and fauna. Consequently, most studies have concentrated on the effects of crude oil and its products on aquatic flora and fauna, with little emphasis on the socio-economic environment. Evaluation of the effects of petroleum exploration and production activities on the social environment in Ogoni land of Rivers State is the main focus of this study. Therefore, in order to fill this gap, there is the need to investigate the effects of crude oil spills on the socio-economic environment, including the livelihoods of people. This is done by; examining the impact of intensive resource exploitation on the social environment of the oil producing communities in Ogoni land which has further degraded the environment to the peril of the inhabitants. Also to examine how the Oil and Gas Multinational Companies have contributed to the management of the environment in these selected communities. The target population comprised 478 respondents across 4 major Oil fields of Ogoni land which is a 5% probability sample. The study employed two sampling techniques: Multi-stage Sampling technique and simple random sampling technique. The study revealed that the hazards and effects associated with crude oil spill are enormous and conspicuous. It was also found out that, there is no proper mechanism for the dissemination of information about the environmental hazards associated with spills on the environment. The study proffered recommendations appropriate workable Environmental Management Programme (EMP) which will help mitigate and enhance the environmental quality of the Ogoni land through baseline studies of the environment and carrying out full Environmental Impact Assessments (EIAs) to understand the ecology of coastal environment for sustainable development to be achieved.

Abstract: This study was carried out to investigate the landscape segments suitable for agricultural purpose in a volcanic land catena of Kerang Area on the Jos Plateau. A reconnaissance survey of the study area was carried out and three different slope segments were identified, a total of 41 surface soil samples were taken from the three segments using a stratified systematic sampling. These soils were then analyzed for the physical and chemical properties. The result of the analyses revealed that the organic matter, total nitrogen, soil PH and exchangeable (Ca Mg) decline down slope, however, potassium (K) and sodium (Na) increase down slope. Co-efficient of variation of the soil properties for the three different slope segments showed low variability for the upper slope (crest and shoulder), exception being that phosphorus (43.10%) and potassium (41.10%) exhibited moderate variability. At the middle slope, the co-efficient of variation exhibited by soil properties is predominantly moderate, exception being that sodium (75%) varies at high proportion at this slope segment. At the lower slope, majority of the soil properties exhibited low variability. On the other hand, total nitrogen: available phosphorous and potassium have values of co-efficient of variation 23.10%, 65.60% and 23.10% respectively. This indicates that available phosphorus exhibited high variability while total nitrogen and exchangeable potassium have intermediate variability. The between or over all co-efficient or variation for the soil properties are predominantly moderate for most variable except PHH2O (11.80%) and PH Cad2 (10.60%) that have low variability and phosphorous (78%) has high variability. Differences in the degree of variation of soil variables from one segment to another can be attributed to soil erosion as affected by slope, nature of soil parent materials and soil management technique. The study also revealed that some of the properties determining soil fertility (total Nitrogen, Available Phosphorus, organic matter, soil PH and exchangeable cation) decreased from the upper part to the lower part of the landscape, with the exception of potassium, (K) and sodium (Na). Recommendations were put forward on how best to use the landscape of the study for agricultural production.
