Abstract:

A number of strategies have been launched to grasp the farmers’ perceptions including PRA, RRA, and PSS methods. Some of the techniques were difficult to analyze quantitatively. As well as some were not a rapid review or overall assessment. Especially in tank cascade studies there should be an overall rapid impact assessment strategy covering hydrological and ecological aspects for research purposes as well as planning purposes. Therefore, this study has been introduced a new participatory assessment method name as “Hydro-Ecological Impact Assessment Scoring Method (HEIAS)” and it has been checked in the field. The investigation was identifying the hydrological and ecological impacts of Agro-well development in tank cascades in the dry zone of Sri Lanka. It was revealed that there were considerable ecological impacts than the hydrological impacts. Further, the difference of the impacts between high Agro-well density tank cascades and low Agro-well density tank cascades was significant.


Abstract:

The study of semantic networks has already started with Hendrix (1979) and Fahlman (1979) in their respective studies about partitioned networks and propagation markers networks. These studies are directly related to the field of artificial intelligence for representing and storing in the memory. The psychologists (Collins and Quillian, 1969, 1970) who proposed a hierarchical structure for the study of memorization. This model has proven ordered hierarchy in their study about the response time to the sentences: “A canary is it an animal?  “A canary is it a bird? “ In fact, the study of semantic networks could help us understand how semantic networks are organized in the mental lexicon? What are the types of relations that these words among themselves in the mental lexicon? To answer these questions, we want to make a comparison between the semantic networks of Algerian students bilingual Arabic / French in Algeria and French students in France to apply the technique of free association.

Abstract:

Bootstrap is a computer approach to get statistical accuracy. It is applied to a wide variety of statistical procedures like non parametric regressions, classification trees or density estimation. This technique requires fewer assumptions and offers greater accuracy and insight than other standard methods for many problems. With the rapid increase in cloud services collecting and using user data to offer personalized experiences, ensuring that these services comply with their privacy policies has become a business imperative for building user trust. This paper mainly focus on two techniques (a) LEGALEASE and (b) GROK that can be use to maintain priavacy in bootstrapping of big data.

Abstract:

INTRODUCTION: Bones are an important tool for determining the age, sex, and stature of an individual both in a forensic study and in a medico legal case. The mandible is considered a second most sexually dimorphic bone after pelvis. The orthopantomograph is widely used for obtaining a comprehensive overview of the maxillofacial complex. 
MATERIAL AND METHODS: The present study was conducted on 50 males & 50 females orthopantomographs in the Department of Anatomy, Department of Radiology and in Department of Oral & Maxillo facial surgery, Dr. S. N. Medical College, Jodhpur (Rajasthan) with the aim to measure, compare, and evaluate the various measurements of mandibular ramus as observed on Digital Orthopantomographs. In the present study, direct discriminant analysis was employed, testing five variables i.e. Maximum ramus breadth, Minimum ramus breadth, Condylar height/maximum ramus height, Projective height of ramus and Coronoid height measured on mandibular ramus of the Western Rajasthan population.
RESULT: The 5 variables showed statistically significant sex differences between sexes, indicating that ramus expresses strong sexual dimorphism in Western Rajasthan population. The best parameters are coronoid height and condylar height for males and projective height for females.
DISCUSSION: It is well noted that discriminant function derived from one specific population cannot be applied to another as magnitude of sex-related differences vary significantly among regional populations. So, there is always a need to develop population-specific standards.
CONCLUSION: We found that mandibular ramus measurements using orthopantomographs were reliable for sex determination.


Abstract:

Purpose:  The purpose  of  the  study  is  to  establish  a  sonographic  sign  to  identify   horse  shoe  kidney.  Isthmus  of  horse  shoe  kidney  may  be  seen  as  a   horizontal  hypoechoic  tissue  in  the  midline   anterior  to  vertebra  resembling  pancreas  –  second  pancreas  sign.
Method: The patients were examined in supine position with curvilinear probe of frequency 7 Hz. Axial images were obtained from the epigastrium to umbilicus to identify the isthmus. Complications like hydronephrosis, calculi and tumor were also looked for. 
Results: Among the patients diagnosed sonographically with horse shoe kidney, isthmus was identified as a solid structure anterior to the aorta resembling pancreas in 84.4 % patients.
Conclusion: Visualization of the isthmus as ‘second pancreas’ helps in almost definite diagnosis of horse shoe kidney.


Abstract:

In the present study we investigated Chemical reaction and Soret effects on unsteady MHD flow through porous medium past an infinite vertical plate in the presence of Thermal radiation. The governing   dimensionless coupled linear partial differential equations are solved numerically using finite difference method (FDM) by developing suitable codes in MATLAB. The fluid velocity, temperature and species concentration profiles have been drawn for time and various flow parameters such as Radiation parameter (R), chemical reaction parameter ( ) and Soret number (Sr) and results are discussed. Also the numerical values of the velocity, temperature and concentration have been tabulated.


Abstract:

Due to traditional values and strong roots in the family system, Sri Lanka may not have witnessed radical changes within the adolescence which the Western world experienced as a result of the world wars, flower powers and drugs or may have experienced such changes comparatively slower and differently than the western world. However, the above described forces may also have changed the traditional values about marriage and family, in the Sri Lanka context.


Abstract:

Existing two systems of evaluation of interviewee written test for subjective questions in interview (grading method and traditional marking method) are considered, and a better method of evaluation called fem is suggested. Fem is a computer based fuzzy approach where a vector valued marking is used. Finally, fem is generalized and the generalized method is called gfem in which a matrix-valued marking is adopted.
