  • Health Hazards Among Workers of Agro-Processing Industries: An Exploratory
           Research in Punjab’s Context
    • Authors: Indu Rawat; N. K. Chhuneja; L. P. Gite; M. S. Meena
      Pages: 1 - 3
      Abstract: Abstract Flour dust in Agro-Processing Industries (APIs) is one of the potential sources of health hazards among the workers. Hence, an investigation was undertaken in APIs of Punjab during 2012 to measure the dust particle size in small and medium sized mills run by the illiterate entrepreneurs. Data were solicited from purposively selected 15 Agro-Processing Centres (APCs) established and supported by Punjab Agricultural University, Ludhiana. A total of 120 workers engaged in these APCs responded for this study. Study reveals that Total Suspended Particulate (TSP) near all work stations was found higher than the recommended value of 0.5 mg/m3 as given by ACGIH. The highest TSP was observed 17.94 mg/m3 at hopper (wheat pouring station), much greater than American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH) limit. Study shows the representative example of current Indian situation, where the recommended value exceeded tremendously. Hence, emission sources of the dust particulate should be given special attention. There is also need to undergo the pre-employment and periodic medical surveillance tests of workers which should be ensured by the employer. The personal protective measures like use of face mask, proper ventilation and reduced working hours in high dust concentration areas are strongly recommended.

  • Efficiency of Modified Phosphatic Fertilizer in Transplanted Rice ( Oryza
           sativa L.) Under Partially Reclaimed Salt Affected Soil of Uttar Pradesh
    • Authors: Adesh Kumar
      Pages: 5 - 7
      Abstract: Abstract The present investigations was conducted at the instructional farm of the Narendra Deva University of Agriculture and Technology, Kumarganj, Faizabad to evaluate the response of single super phosphate (SSP) modified with different organic and inorganic materials to rice. The application of modified and split doses of phosphatic fertilizer increased the yield, yield attributes, and nutrient uptake over the control. The maximum yield of rice was obtained in gypsum coated SSP (49.50 q ha−1) than 50 % Basal + 50 % Top dressing in two split 25 % tillering stage + 25 % PI stage (44.70 q ha−1) and Cow dung coated SSP (1:5) (38.80 q ha−1) treatment. The SSP with gypsum coated recorded higher N, P, and K uptake response by 65.64, 168.23 and 89.06 % respectively as compared to other treatment. The maximum net income and cost benefit ratio was obtained with gypsum coated SSP followed by 50 % Basal + 50 % Top dressing in two split 25 % tillering stage + 25 % PI stage.

  • New Record of Quadrastichus plaquoi (Hymenoptera: Eulophidae) as
           Parasitoid of Chromatomyia horticola (Diptera: Agromyzidae)
    • Authors: P. L. Sharma; R. Kumar
      Pages: 9 - 11
      Abstract: Abstract Chromatomyia horticola (Goureau) is an important pest of many economically important crops throughout the world. The study deals with Quadrastichus plaquoi Reina and LaSalle (Hymenoptera: Eulophidae) as a new parasitoid of C. horticola. This species differs from Q. liriomyzae, its closely related species; in characters that both sexes of Q. plaquoi have pronotum mainly yellow with a median dark area, first two funicular segments of female antenna are equal in length and scape reaching slightly beyond the apex of vertex. The parasitoid was distributed in all the agriclimatic conditions ranging from subtropical low hills to dry temperate high mountains resulting in 0.14–13.63 % parasitization of C. horticola. Parasitoid was more abundant in sub-temperate mid hills than sub-tropical or temperate conditions. Indian mustard was observed to be more attractive than garden peas to the parasitoid. Being a native and potential parasitoid, in future, it can be used for bio-intensive management of C. horticola.

  • Phosphorus Solubilization Through Organic Acids Production in Pressmud
           Composted with Rockphosphate
    • Authors: S. K. Reza; Sarjeet Singh; S. C. Datta; T. J. Purakayastha; S. K. Singh
      Pages: 13 - 16
      Abstract: Abstract Rockphosphate enriched pressmud compost (RPEPMC) was prepared by mixing fresh pressmud with rockphosphate (RP) inoculated with a composite microbial culture consisting of Pseudomonas spp., Aspergillus spp., Streptomycetes spp., Penicillium spp. and Trichoderma spp. at 0.1 % (w/w) level. The production of organic acids and solubilization of phosphorus during pressmud composting was studied at 30, 60, 90 and 120 days of composting. The presence of oxaloacetic, citric, succinic, tartaric, malic and maleic acids in the compost was detected and quantified. In general the organic acids produced at 30 days were highest which rapidly decreased at 120 days of composting. The positive influence of various organic acids on solubilization of P from RP was evident from concomitant increase in citrate-soluble and water-soluble-P content in the compost. After 120 days of composting the end product had a stable C:N ratio and higher soluble P. Thus RPEPMC could be an alternative source of P fertilizer in crop production.

  • Molecular Confirmation of Conserved Nature of Genes Encoding MPB53 and
           MPB63 Immune Dominant Proteins in Indian Strain of Mycobacterium bovis
    • Authors: Ramane Sangram Pandit; Rishendra Verma; Tista Mondal; Vikramaditya Upmanyu
      Pages: 17 - 19
      Abstract: Abstract The genes encoding MPB53 and MPB63 immuno dominant proteins of Mycobacterium bovis field strain 3/86-RV were amplified by polymerase chain reaction (PCR). The recombinant plasmids were constructed via inserting the mpb53 and mpb63 genes into the pET vector (named pET28b-mpb53 and pET28b-mpb63). The nucleotide sequences of the insert PCR products were determined by vector specific primer. Both genes contained an open reading frame of 402 and 390 base pairs for mpb53 and mpb63, respectively. The sequenced genes and its deduced amino acid sequences were compared with the published sequences of reference M. tuberculosis complex strains. The sequences of the mpb53 and mpb63 genes share more than 99 % nucleotide homology and deduced protein sequence homology pointing towards conserved molecular nature of these immunodominant proteins among M. tuberculosis complex species.

  • Package-Restructuring Based on Software Change History
    • Authors: Anshu Parashar; Jitender Kumar Chhabra
      Pages: 21 - 27
      Abstract: Abstract In component-based development of object-oriented software, modularization depends on how packages are structured or organized. Packages evolve over time and require re-structuring after some time so that understandability and maintainability gets improved. In this paper, a new approach for package-restructuring named as Change-History based Package-Restructuring (CHPR) is introduced to identify proper package-regrouping possibilities. CHPR approach considers past co-change patterns of packages along with their structural coupling. A series of experiments on open source software systems have been performed and preliminary results show that CHPR approach is able to indentify meaningful package restructuring.

  • Chloride Analysis of Sea Sand for Making Concrete
    • Authors: M. Karthikeyan; V. Nagarajan
      Pages: 29 - 31
      Abstract: Abstract Usage of sea sand for concrete development is the possible alternative for river sand and avoids the excessive sand mining which may cause ecological and environmental problems. Sea sand is not used in concrete, since it contains chloride ions which can corrode steel. In order to avoid the corrosion, the salt content of the sea sand must be eliminated before being utilized in concrete. Present paper investigates adopting sea sand as fine aggregate in concrete. The physical properties like specific gravity, percentage of fineness and solubility were carried out in raw sea sand and treated sea sand. The results of the study reveal that the chloride level of treated sea sand is below the acceptable level of 0.075 % weight of sand. The chemical properties of sea sand were also studied by chloride ion estimation.

  • A BP and Switching PSO Based Optimization Approach for Engine Optimization
    • Authors: Dongmei Wu; Hao Gao
      Pages: 33 - 37
      Abstract: Abstract This paper proposes a Switching PSO (SW-PSO) based on entropy of swarm and switch mode. Further, a hybrid method based on SW-PSO and Back Propagation (BP) neural network algorithm has been presented for diesel engine optimization. BP was used to construct prediction model for chemical combustion in engine cylinders, and SW-PSO was employed to optimize engine parameters that achieve higher fuel efficiency and fewer exhausts. SW-PSO proved to be superior in convergence performance, and the hybrid method also showed advantages in dealing with practical engine optimization problem.

  • A New Contourlet Based Multiresolution Approximation for MRI Image Noise
    • Authors: S. Anila; S. S. Sivaraju; N. Devarajan
      Pages: 39 - 41
      Abstract: Abstract Modern medical diagnosis equipments included with digital signal processing capabilities have been used for fast and accurate diagnosis of brain structure abnormalities. In this paper a multi resolution based noise removal in magnetic resonance images for abnormality detection and recognition within the brain has been proposed. Wavelet and curvelet based multi resolution approximation has been used to decompose the inter-object relationships into different levels of detail. Contourlet based multi resolution approximation is presented in this work for better abnormality detection. Comparison of extracted feature points between the reference image and the image under study has been made in detection of the abnormality.

  • Adsorptive Removal of Alizarin Red S by a Novel Biosorbent of an Invasive
           Weed Mikania micrantha
    • Authors: Pavan Kumar Gautam; Ravindra Kumar Gautam; Sushmita Banerjee; M. C. Chattopadhyaya; J. D. Pandey
      Abstract: Abstract In this paper, the efficiency of biosorbent prepared from Mikania micrantha to remediate a hazardous dye Alizarin Red S from aqueous phase was investigated. Morphological and constitutional characteristics of the biosorbent were studied by performing SEM and FTIR. The adsorption equilibrium was modeled with the Langmuir and Freundlich isotherm. The maximum monolayer adsorption capacity was found to be 46.51 mg g−1 at 50 °C. The isotherm data were better fitted to Freundlich model indicated heterogeneous nature of the adsorbent. The negative values of ∆G° and positive value of ∆H° demonstrated that the adsorption of Alizarin Red S onto Mikania micrantha were spontaneous and endothermic in nature, respectively. Positive value of ∆S° advocated the randomness at solid–liquid interface.

  • Pattern Mining Approach for Social Network Services
    • Authors: Brijesh Bakariya; G. S. Thakur
      Abstract: Abstract Social networking service (SNS) is one of the most encouraging directions of web applications. It is one of the services where people may communicate with one another; and may also exchange messages even of any multimedia communication. In this paper, we proposed practical approach by applying data mining techniques in SNS. Three parameters are considered here viz. user, time and image. This approach generates strong patterns among these parameters. This is a very efficient technique for identifying user’s behavior in a SNS environment. Most frequently used pattern can be identified using these three parameters in SNS. Through this approach advertisement recommendation is possible in SNS.

  • Effects of Acid Mine Drainage of Coal Mines on Some Haematological
           Parameters of Channa punctatus (Bloch)
    • Authors: B. Talukdar; H. K. Kalita; R. A. Baishya; S. Basumatary; A. Dutta; S. K. Srivastava; D. Sarma
      Abstract: Abstract The present study aim to evaluate effect of Acid Mine Drainage (AMD) of coal mine effluent water on certain haematological parameters viz., Total erythrocyte count (TEC), Haemoglobin (Hb), Oxygen Carrying Capacity (OCC), Packed Cell Volume (PCV), Mean Corpuscular Volume (MCV), Mean Corpuscular Haemoglobin (MCH), Mean Cell Haemoglobin Concentration (MCHC), Differential Leukocyte Count (DLC) and cellular and nuclear anomalies of blood cells in Channa punctatus (Bloch). After detecting the LC50, fishes were treated with sub-lethal concentration of effluent water (pH-2.7) for 2, 6, 10 and 15 days. It has been observed a gradual significant decrease in TEC, Hb, OCC, PCV and MCV as compared to that of control but slight fluctuation in the level of MCH and MCHC and increase in the number of lymphocyte and basophil in treated fishes. Deformed nucleus, cytoplasmic vaculation, cell swelling, hemolysis are some prominent abnormalities observed in the blood cells of treated group.
