  • Contribution of Best Practices to Promote Sustainable Urban Freight

      Authors: Tassia Faria De Assis; Victor Hugo Souza De Abreu, Pedro José Pires Carneiro, Marcio De Almeida D’Agosto
      Abstract: Urban logistics decision makers face serious challenges in trying to make urban freight transport (UFT) efficient and sustainable. Therefore, it is necessary to identify best practices (BPs) to promote improvements on activity levels, modal shifts to lower-carbon transport systems, lowering energy and intensity, and reducing fuel carbon intensity. This paper conducts an exhaustive literature review that seeks to identify that are directly applicable to BPs promoting sustainable UFT and that indicate the opportunities and challenges of urban logistics. The results indicate that, although BPs make sense for themselves, the most powerful effect occurs when two or more of them are used together, multiplying their strengths. Furthermore, there is an expressive participation of environmental and economic indicators (costs and service levels) to the detriment of social indicators, thus indicating a literary gap.

  • From Patterns to Freefall: Exposing the Vulnerability of Human Predicament
           in the Times of the Pandemic

      Authors: Dr. Swapna Gopinath
      Abstract: COVID-19 demands a paradigm shift in modes of human interaction and challenges hegemonic social structures to adapt and evolve themselves to the altered reality of human existence. Across the world, these shifts have been triggered by the new social order threatening to erase existing social systems. My paper attempts to look at the lives of the precariats, caught up within neoliberal structures, assuming these structures to be hegemonic normative systems, and the manner in which they refuse to change, thereby putting the precariats into a more exploitative crisis situation, dehumanizing them, demonizing them, thereby risking their erasure from the socio-political and legal systems that rule the world. I have used the context of India to substantiate my argument. My paper is divided into the following sections: a reading into the concept of precarity and contextualizing it in the neoliberal framework, analysing the pandemic against precarity using examples from Indian society.

      Authors: Fabio Pacheco Estumano Da Silva; Amanda Ramos Pereira, Adan Rodrigues De Oliveira, Carlos Alberto Machado Da Rocha
      Abstract: In appropriate activation of c-MYC proto-oncogene contributes to the development of human cancers. Searches for therapies that target genes and proteins related to neoplastic phenotypes have become frequent. Therefore, inhibiting c-MYC expression has been the target for developing and testing multiple drugs and strategies for the treatment of various human cancers. This study aimed to map scientific and technological productions on the MYC gene at the Scielo, PubMed and Orbit Intelligence platforms between 2000 and 2019. The scientific prospecting revealed 1,259 articles. The most detected categories were: molecular biology, MYC mutations and those addressing the MYC as a drug target or therapeutic strategies. A progressive increase in the number of articles in this last category was found. Technological mapping detected 10,059 patent documents, with 20.2% granted. China and the USA were the largest filers, accounting for more than 40%. Biotechnology was the field with the highest number of patents. Biotechnology and the pharmaceutical sector predominated in the second half of the period investigated, both in scientific and technological prospecting. Our study points to a scientific and technological effort in the development of therapeutic strategies against cancer, in which MYC is among the main targets.

      Authors: Marina Leite De Barros Baltar; Victor Hugo Souza De Abreu, Andrea Souza Santos
      Abstract: Traffic incidents (such as broken-down vehicles, accidents, flat tires and other) constitute an important concern in the urban context, impacting the sustainable development. Thus, currently, the proposition of efficient traffic incident management systems has been encouraged to re-establish road safety and restore the network's traffic capacity. Thus, this paper aims to investigate the main impacts of traffic incidents and elaborate a logical structure of actions that should be employed to improve their management. The results show that many impacts can be identified in the three spheres of sustainable development and improvement actions must accelerate responses to emergencies, invest in Intelligent Transportation System (ITS), develop urban planning with a focus on more roads secure and enforce existing laws and regulations.

      Authors: Aysha Anwer; Muhmmad Farooq, Dr. Shahid Minhas, Hamza Rehman Butt
      Abstract: The purpose of the study was to determine the impact of emotional advertising on customer purchasing behaviour. High-end items, particularly garment companies, are the focus of research. It also intends to investigate the most effective advertising appeal for influencing customer purchase decisions. The question mark-based survey was done with a sample size of 150 respondents, and their reactions to various attractions such as love, joy, and excitement were recorded. Hypothetical models have been validated through the use of hypothetical analysis and structural equation modelling (SEM). The findings demonstrate that pleasant emotions such as love, laughter, and happiness have a beneficial influence on customer purchasing intentions. This study supports the favourable relationship between emotional advertising and consumer purchasing behaviour when it comes to clothing companies.

      Authors: Zainab Mohanad Issa Ansaf; Dr. Shaheda Akthar
      Abstract: Verbal autopsy is one of the finest medical process to identify automatically the cause of a death afore medical ascendant entities will certify it. Identifying the exact cause is intricate and fuzzy in nature. The dataset with an exact cause of death is a paramount implement for every country to make the presage about the life style and medical facilities available to the people. Multinomial logistic regression was utilized in our study to relegate the exact cause of death. We used standard datasets like PHMRC and Matlab which were potentially accepted in medical field. The reason to utilize the Multinomial logistic Regression is that most of the dataset is consisting of 0 and 1 values which betoken the presence and absence of value in the attribute. We used three standard metrics like the sensitivity, Chance Corrected Concordance (CCC) and Cause-specific mortality fraction (CSMF) for a comparison of our model with precedent models like Insilico VA, Tariff and InterVA-4. Computed results show that proposed model is better than the precedent models.

      Abstract: The sea is of paramount importance in the life of man and peoples. Since ancient times, it has represented a tool for communication between nations, a link for civilizational meeting between them, and a source of sustenance. Man’s need and interest in exploiting this wealth moves his curiosity and ambitions to think and search for means that contribute and help in expanding the scope of maritime exploitation and consolidating relations between countries more and more. The maritime field was among the important areas touched by industrial and technological development, especially in the field of maritime transport, which led to the emergence of giant ships capable of embarking on sea voyages and thus moving foreign trade in a positive way.
      The aim of the research is to know the extent to which ship hull insurance is related to the liquidity and profitability of the National Insurance Company, and where the main research problem is manifested in the extent to which ship hull insurance is linked to the liquidity and profitability of the National Insurance Company.
      Only the research relied on the questionnaire as a tool for all data and information from the sample of 64 and those who have responsibility are (General Director, Department Director, Division Officer, Unit Officer) and the statistical program was used spss 21 in the calculation standard deviation, simple linear regression, testF ) R² (.
      The conclusions reached by the research are the evaluation of the degree of risk surrounding the ship and the evaluation of the degree of classification in the classification record is based on which the insurance price for the structures of marine vessels is determined, which shows that the degree of risk varies up and down according to the type of ship, origin, shipping lines, and the experience of the crew and the master. The results of the study also showed the existence of a strong correlation between the liquidity variable and profitability in the respondents' response to the research sample in the National Insurance Company, as there is no profitability without the presence of liquidity and good liquidity expresses the company's ability to meet the payment of its obligations.
      (*) An extracted thesis, which is part of the requirements for obtaining a higher diploma equivalent to a master’s degree.
      There are also a number of recommendations, including; Adoption of a unified plan for all insurance branches. To measure the liquidity risk in order to ensure that the company is protected from bankruptcy or its exit from the insurance market in the event of a financial crisis again.

      Abstract: Introduction: Nowadays, adolescent and youth’s health has become increasingly important. The world health organization (WHO) emphasizes the importance of evaluating the structure, process, and outcome of health services. This study was conducted to design a health services’ management of adolescents and youth model for the Iranian population, to improve young people's health.
      Method: This study is a comparative, quantitative-qualitative study. Countries were selected by comparing adolescent and youth health indicators based on population and availability of information. By studying the health services’ management of adolescents and youth, essential variables and dimensions in the initial model were identified, and a preliminary questionnaire was developed and approved by experts. One hundred seventy-eight final questionnaires were completed by experts. Exploratory factor analysis was performed to determine the practical factors (SPSS 20), and the model’s fit was examined by confirmatory factor analysis (Amos 24).
      Results: A total of 6 factors were identified as effective in health services’ management of adolescents and youth, including, health service package, human resources, financial resources, equipment and services’ provision, data & statistics information resources, and health service delivery management of adolescents and youth, With a maximum 0.97 operating load had the highest and equipment and services’ provision (0.53), had the least impact.
      Conclusion: The proposed model has the most significant impact on the management of health services’ management of adolescents and youth components.

      Abstract: In recent years, occupational stress mining has become a widely exciting issue in the research field. The primary purpose of this study is to analyze filter feature selection methods for the efficient occupational stress classification model. We propose and examine seven different techniques of filter feature selection such as Chi-Square, Information Gain, Information Gain Ratio, Correlation, Principal Component Analysis, and Relief. The resultant selected features are then used with popular classifiers like Naive Bayes (NB), Random Forest (RF), Support Vector Machine (SVM), Artificial Neural Network (ANN), and Gradient Boosted Trees (GBT) for detection of occupational stress in the insurance sector. A survey-based psychological primary occupational stress data set is used to evaluate the relative performance of these methods. This study effectively demonstrated the significance of filter feature selection methods and explained how accurately they could help classify stress levels. This study showed that the Correlation-based feature selection with the SVM classifier obtained the best performance compared to other filter feature selection methods and classification models.

      Abstract: Farming is one of the most fundamental and generally rehearsed work in Pakistan and it plays an imperative part in fostering the country. In Pakistan, the most part of the land is used for agriculture cultivation to meet the desires of nearby people and export want as properly. Therefore, the need of increasing crop production is the significant challenge for farmers. Crop cultivation anywhere in the world depends on the climate so called seasons and soil properties, however, the enhancing the production of crops depend on various factors like mainly on temperature. In order to address the issue of increasing crop production for Pakistan, a crop recommendation system is proposed in this work. In this work, idea of ideal harvest prior to planting it, it would be of extraordinary assistance to the farmers and others required to settle on fitting choices on upgrading the creation of yields for neighborhood utilization needs and may prompt the capacity and expanded fare choice for business. Our framework utilized Machine Learning procedures with the end goal that it proposes the appropriate corps dependent on the temperature. This framework subsequently diminishes the monetary misfortunes looked by the farmers brought about by establishing the ominous harvests and furthermore it gives the information on the occasional characterization of yields what harvest is reasonable for which season. It is concluded that proposed algorithm has an average accuracy of 90% on the given dataset. The achieved accuracy is more in comparison to existing work.

      Abstract: Erectile dysfunction (ED) is considered a public health problem with numerous risk factors, such as hypertension. Besides the existing oral treatment for ED, there are individuals that do not respond to or present numerous side effects to this therapy. Changes in the TRP channels can lead to several clinical complications, such as hypertension. More specifically, the cooling-sensing TRPM8 channel could be a novel target for the development of new drugs. In this line, menthol, a natural product TRPM8 channel agonist may be a molecule for use to treat erectile dysfunction. Then, we conducted a patent review to evaluate the application of menthol focusing on the treatment of erectile dysfunction. The search was conducted on Espacenet® associating A61K31/045 and A61K36/534 codes or using keywords, “erectile dysfunction AND menthol”. We analyzed 1,331 patents, which fourteen patents were found with the use of menthol in the genitourinary system. Although the patents had menthol in their formulations, none went directly to the development of pharmaceutical applications to treat erectile dysfunction. Taking these data into account, the use of menthol in the treatment of erectile dysfunction has been underexplored and is an opportunity for research and technological development based on a high innovation potential.

      Abstract: The civil construction industry affects the environment mainly due to the high generation of waste and extraction of natural raw materials. However, this industry is also responsible for absorbing a large part of the waste, not only generated by itself, but also those generated in other production cycles. These residues are often reused as an alternative raw material, after some treatment. The use of ornamental stone cutting waste has already been studied by many authors, and it is a technically viable alternative in cement matrix products for civil construction. Thus, this technological prospection work analyzed the technological trends regarding the use of marble waste in cement production, based on the registration of patents in recent years. For this, a search was carried out in the Brazilian Nacional Institute of Intellectual Property (INPI) and Dewert Innovation Index (DII) databases, in April 2021, with no period limitation. The main documents were found in the DII database, and the results showed that among the countries that filed a patent on this subject, China is the country with the highest number of filings, with the majority of these filings occurring between 2014 and 2020, suggesting a reflection of the current interest in ways to give an adequate destination to ornamental stone waste.

      Abstract: Based on mitigation strategies for the rational use of resources and conscious consumption of inputs, it is important to develop tools that allow the measurement of environmental impacts and greenhouse gas emissions, for better decision-making in the planning of railway infrastructure activities. Therefore, this article presents a method for evaluating railway infrastructure projects, having as a parameter the potential impact of global warming when different materials are used in the sub-ballast, to improve the support capacity of the railway pavement. As a technical criterion for evaluation, the mechanical behavior of the subgrade was considered in a condition of moisture above the optimal level, with a sub-ballast composed of sandy material as a baseline for comparison. The results, considering the environmental impact, clearly indicated that the use of a soil-cement mixture in the sub-ballast was the best option. Furthermore, even in the face of more frequent renovation of the permanent way, the reference scenario was more attractive than those with use of a combination of soil-emulsion and hot mix asphalt.

      Authors: Praveen Kumar Sharma; Shivram Sharma
      Abstract: In this article, we do a study of common fixed point theorems for six self-maps in FM-Spaces using common limit in range property concerning two pairs of products of two different self-maps. We use the properties (CLRTH) and (CLRSR) along with contractive type implicit relations to prove our results. In support of our result, an example has been provided. Our findings are like those of Kumar and Chouhan [12]. Kumar and Chauhan demonstrated their primary result in [12] by improving and generalizing Aalam, Kumar, and Pants' [1] results. In past, many authors have done study of common fixed point using (E-A) property (like Aalam et. al. [1] proved results using this property), and then these results were improved and generalized by using common (E-A) property as this property is superior to (E-A) property, as the closeness of subspace is required to prove a required result on common fixed point by using these properties, which is a drawback. We improve and generalize all results on these properties using common limit in range property. The goal of this note is to refine and generalize Kumar and Chauhan's [12] results on a common fixed point, as well as some earlier comparable results.

      Abstract: The current research seeks to study and analyze performance indicators and standards and its variables, the research relied on the historical method in studying the previous indicators by returning to the measures related to indicators and performance standards presented by a different group of writers and researchers, performance criteria were analyzed to determine the level and size of the gap between actual performance and planned performance. The study reached a set of conclusions, the most important of which is that the concept of Performance and performance indicators are topics that are characterized by intellectual and cognitive richness. Perhaps the reason for this difference is due to the difference in the fields and areas in which researchers studied the concept and performance indicators. As well as the cognitive, cultural and intellectual differences of researchers in this concept. As for the most important recommendations of the research, it referred to the invitation of organizations to strive hard in determining their own performance indicators. The organization can stand alone from the competing organizations in defining special indicators to measure its performance that will enable it to achieve a competitive advantage.

      Authors: Sahil Gupta; Madhvi Sethi
      Abstract: This research will concentrate primarily on commodity relationships, mainly, prices of oil (OP) and gold (GP), US stock market (S&P500), consumer confidence index (CCI), the US Dollar index (USDX), and the industrial production (IP). The purpose of the analysis is to study the dynamic interconnection between OP, USDX, CCI, GP, IP, and S&P500, by estimating the Vector Auto Regression (VAR) model. OP, CCI, GP, USDX, S&P500, and IP are the different variables used in this paper. Using monthly data from January 1971 to May 2020, this study applies the Granger causality test, Variance Decomposition (VDC) analysis, and Impulse Response Function (IRF). It can be inferred from the results that USDX has a significant relationship with GP and has a causal impact on GP. Industrial Production has also shown a significant relationship with S&P500 and has a causal impact on S&P500. The result also suggested that CCI and S&P500 share a unidirectional relationship; the volatility in CCI in the short run is due to the S&P500. Also, the variables do not have any other significant relationship. The findings also highlighted that USDX directly affected GP negatively. Industrial production directly impacted S&P500 in the short run, while a positive relationship is shared between CCI and S&P 500.

      Authors: Deona Noble; Kanchan Patil
      Abstract: Blockchain, which is the core technology for Bit coin and other digital currencies, is a disruptive technology, especially in the Stock Exchange Market. Although blockchain has much potential in transforming the traditional stock exchange market, blockchain research in this field is still in its infancy. Business scholars began publishing studies related to blockchain in the Stock market transformation in 2015. In this research, we did a PRISMA guided systematic literature review of blockchain in the Stock market transformation from 2015 to 2019. The results show that even though there is an increase in studies, more empirical research is required to utilize the potential of blockchain technology fully. The findings also provide important insights into the current state of a blockchain scholarly study, including its top advantages and legal obstacles, the risk associated with implementing this technology, and the identification of various promising blockchain models currently being proposed in the stock market. We find that blockchain transforms the stock market remains in an early-stage research domain in terms of theoretical basis, methodological diversity, and empirically grounded work. Hence, this research identifies the research gaps and highlights areas where we need a further study that researchers can utilize.

      Abstract: Contextual knowledge is the most important aspect of language comprehension. We define contextual knowledge as both general knowledge and discourse knowledge, i.e., knowledge of the situational context, background knowledge, and co-textual context. In this paper, we will discuss the significance of contextual knowledge in comprehending the humor found in Amul's cartoon advertisements in India. Throughout the process, we will analyze these advertisements and determine whether humor is an effective tool for advertising and, as a result, marketing. These bilingual advertisements also assume that the audience has the necessary linguistic knowledge, such as vocabulary, morphology, and syntax in English and Hindi. Various techniques such as punning, portmanteaus, and parodies of popular proverbs, expressions, acronyms, famous dialogues, songs, and so on are used to convey the message humorously. The current study will focus on these linguistic cues and the necessary context for understanding wit and humor. This study will also employ semiotics and sign methodology to analyze the message provided by the cartoons. According to the research findings, cartoons serve two purposes: political communication and advertising; however, advertising is camouflaged and not placed in an obvious manner.

      Authors: Nitish Rane; Pooja Gupta
      Abstract: This study aims to examine the impact of financial ratios on the stock prices of companies listed on NIFTY Bank. Nifty Bank is a sub-index of NIFTY 50 and has various listed banks included based on the criteria given by NSE. This study data has been taken from the period 2010-2019 and taken from the company annual reports. The analysis is done using panel data regression and other tests to verify the best model for the dataset. The results obtained from this study show that the capital adequacy ratio and the dividend payout ratio do not impact the stock price. In contrast, earnings per share, net NPA ratio, and basic earnings per share, net profit margin, and net interest margin exhibited a relationship with the stock price. In the Indian context, there is less research available on this topic, and the idea chosen for the study is original. Along with this, the data collected for the study and the code used for analysis is original work. New investors can use the results of this study in the Indian stock market to analyze a stock and take proper investment decisions. Another practical usage of this study is that banking sector companies can improve their ratios to attract new investors.

      Authors: Aditi Deshpande
      Abstract: Every year, the city of Pune attracts migrant workers due to urbanization, and these migrants form residential pockets called slums. Today, around 40% of Pune's population lives in urban slums, around 11% of children, who have little or no access to education with the everyday hand-to-mouth struggle for survival. This study explores the lives of slum children and their educational conditions. Three case studies were conducted with three slums from uptown areas of Pune. Focus group discussions, interviews, and visual survey methods were employed, leading to qualitative analysis. Analysis threw light on the everyday challenges faced by slum children in accessing education. The visual studies imply the need for architectural intervention. The findings also suggest policy implications towards the provision of education towards the betterment of the lives of slum children. Working and learning are the two social processes; without breaking the legal structures on child labor, children working within the home as domestic labor or in the household enterprise is a common occurrence in urban centers, particularly among those who are household income is derived from the informal sector and who have lower income levels. Working modes and times differ depending on the situation. Owing to the size of India's informal economy and attempts to reduce child labor trafficking, a strong emphasis has been placed on developing and implementing social policies that address child labor.

These children suffer from either developmental delays or learning difficulties. According to sources, there is a iniquitousness of 1.5-2.5% of advancing delay in kids below 2 years of age in India. Development is described into five different domains - gross motor, fine motor, speech, and language, cognitive and socio-emotional. These children need help at an early age to overcome developmental delays and for cognitive enhancement. Both parents and teachers are involved with children right from an early age, and they can devise ways to help these children. Many schools adopt 'Play' as an important activity to help these children overcome developmental delays and "toys" are mostly central to the design of such activities.
      The paper describes the design research for designing toys for cognitive enhancement of children with developmental delays between 2 and 5 years. In the first phase of research, the interview method was used to understand what kind of learning difficulties children face and what kind of methods are employed to teach them and understand what types of toys they are using. The sample size of 20 comprising of teachers, therapists, and pediatricians from Special schools and departments for special need children in mainstream schools was used for the interview purpose. Observational studies with children (5 different classrooms with children between 3-5 years age) were carried out to understand how children learn and use the toys. At the end of the first phase, the qualitative analysis led to the shift from learning difficulties to developmental delays. In the second phase, a survey of available products in the market was conducted to understand what types of toys are used to address these children's developmental activity. Mapping the play methods employed by the teachers and therapists to the toys' activities led to finding the Design gap. The design process incorporated the research findings. The product is designed in the form of a Toy Box with a multi-utility set of toys for cognitive enhancement in children with developmental delays. The design (three sets of toys) addresses children's communication, spatial, cognitive, gross motor & fine motor skills with developmental delays. The designed product was put through user testing twice to incorporate the findings from the testing to make the design more user-friendly for the children and the teachers, therapists, and parents.

      Abstract: Special needs children have different needs compared to typically growing children in various aspects of life. Their learning is hampered due to the difficulties they face in the normal way of learning. Special education practices have been adopting various play-based methods to address special needs children's difficulties and needs. This research reviews toy play as a learning method and its importance in young special needs children's education. The paper takes different perspectives on play and how it is characterized. A study of Toy Play taxonomies is also presented from the perspective of the learning needs of special needs children. Three prominent special education approaches are studied, and a synthesis of how to play fits into these approaches is presented. The future of toy play and further research areas is discussed. Early childhood play is a normal phenomenon that has much use in early intervention, early childhood special education, and early childhood education. Among these areas, there are still many disagreements about how to characterize and use play. These tensions jeopardize evaluation, action, and curriculum planning practices, as well as their links to science and practice. This essay examines play in early learning, early childhood special education, early childhood education, and how play is viewed and used in these settings.

      Abstract: This paper examines the perception of Indian employees on the role of organizational structure; it also aims to assess the impact of culture on the views of Indian employees regarding their choice of work environment and the feasibility of self-management practices in India. Despite widespread acknowledgment of the challenges presented by flat structures and hierarchical structures, little is known about today's Indian workforce's think and needs. The relationships between various factors on the employees’ orientation of the preferred organizational structure and its effect on their motivation are studied in this paper. The results reveal no great disparity in the views and choices of the employees who have an experience of flat structure and those who do not. However, it does indicate various other relationships between the factors that impact the organizational structure like Control and Capability, Reward-Systems and Organizational Levels, Culture and Reward Systems, Tendency to Explore and Reward Systems, Organizational levels and Motivation and lastly, Organizational Level and Culture. The results also suggest that Indian employees do want to have autonomy and responsibility in their work. However, they do believe that the different organizational levels have their role in managing the organization.

      Abstract: The era of information and communication technologies has created many opportunities in every aspect. The field that has been benefitted the most from these recent developments in the financial and business sector. The scope and speed of evolution in technology, customer perception, and wide acceptance indicate that these technologies and disruptions will transform the finance and banking sector as we know it, providing both opportunities and challenges to financial institutions. Systems that have traditionally been used for savings, investments are not well suited given the scale and agility required for the digital age. Keeping in mind this array, financial institutions are responding with new digitization and innovation initiatives, using analytics, cloud technologies, and other new alternatives to respond to customer expectations. In a country like India, with a large economy and a despotic regime, the country shows decent economic growth even after having a complex system of arbitrary rules and regulations. Amidst all the growth, there is a huge scope of transforming the investment and lending patterns, with the help of technologies becoming more customer-centric and efficient. So, the technologies like blockchain are looking to drive innovation across various industries in India. In the era of blockchain, cryptocurrencies are the main part of it. They are said to be the most disruptive technologies in this area. This paper is an attempt to find the future of digital currency in India from the international experience.

      Abstract: This paper observes the increasing influence of godmen in India and the socio-economic division among devotees that influences their decision to follow them. The study navigates through various social spheres and predominantly focuses on lower-income groups, middle-income groups, and upper-income groups to piece together the research paper. It focuses on in-depth interviews as a primary source of understanding these differences and is followed by possible deductions of the same, keeping in mind the hypothesis that there is a socio-economic divide in this seemingly secular framework of spirituality and religion, as defined by the devotees. These interviews are narrative analyzed to detect any recurring patterns within the economic groups and the following groups. Constructivism as a theory is used to understand how the arguments put forward by the interviewees are influenced by their social position in society and how they are inclined towards understanding reality on individual terms. The study's findings prove that a possible correlation can be derived between an individual's economic standing and expectations while following a certain godmen.

      Authors: Daniyal Jadhav; Shashikala Gurpur, Lasya Vyakranam
      Abstract: The Indian economy is categorized into two sectors, namely: organized and unorganized sectors. The unorganized sector consists of a pivotal part of the Indian economy. Ragpickers are that class of employees who can be considered as an organized-unorganized labor class. Ragpicking business entails collecting, sorting, and selling various waste materials, mainly plastics or metals. After doing all this work, they sell recyclable material to the junkyard dealers at very petty prices, making them economically poor. Ragpickers are a major contributor to the Indian economy, as they are involved in recycling. Ragpickers mostly work without being equipped with any protective gear and are exposed to many health hazards while doing their role. They suffer from occupational risks and are often found hospitalized paying their bills from their pockets. There are times when they even do not go to hospitals because of hospital expenses. The paper primarily focuses on analyzing the different health insurance schemes, which are provided as social security by the Maharashtra Government and tries to find out the possible loopholes in health insurance policies because of which the ragpickers are not able to utilize or avail the benefits of the policies for which they are eligible. For developing a better understanding of the subject, the researcher has conducted an empirical survey on the ragpickers of Pune. Based on this, the researcher has recommended some policy changes, which can prove beneficial for the welfare of the Ragpickers.

      Authors: Dhanaji Mukund Rao Jadhav; Aiswarya Krishnan, Devi S Vijay
      Abstract: Original Article 370 of the Indian Constitution is temporary, transitional. Special Provision of the State of J&K, This provision grants J&K an autonomous status. In contrast, Article 35A is incorporated into the constitution in 1954, grants special rights and privileges to state citizens. Since its inception, Article 370 has been considered a controversial provision in the constitution. It has been politicized in one or another way. The abrogation of Article 370 cannot be viewed in isolation, as it has proximity with historical, political, and constitutional dimensions. The abrogation of Article 370 is a key issue so far as the autonomy of the people of J&K is a concern. The mode and manner in which Article 370 has been abrogated and the procedure adopted for making Article 370 virtually ineffective is of great concern from the constitutional law point of view. The alarming terrorism in Kashmiris is a persistent threat to the unity and integrity of the nation and Indian democracy. Undoubtedly human rights violation of Kashmiri people through militant has always been an issue of great concern for Indian patriotism. In furtherance to the unity and integrity of the nation and to resolve the issue of Jammu and Kashmir with intent to have uniform opportunities of development, all the states, including Jammu and Kashmir, the Article 370 has been abrogated. Even though this decision was a courageous attempt on the government's part, it is not free from wide controversies. This paper examines the constitutional and political dimensions of the abrogation of Article 370 and its impact on the people of Jammu and Kashmir. The research paper examines the political, social, and legal intricacies, including the logical insight into how abrogation was politically judicious; however, the constitutionality is debatable. Paper squarely covers the historical, political, and constitutional dimensions of the abrogation of Article 370 and examines it from a constitutional point of view. The researchers have pertinently tried to analyze and evaluate the abrogation of Article 370 as a political necessity on the touchstone of constitutional principle and have correlated it with human rights.

      Authors: Debasmita Ghosh; Dipen Paul
      Abstract: This paper strives to study the presence and impact of Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) and Roundtable on Responsible Soy (RTRS) in India today. The reason for choosing these two roundtables is - India is one of the significant producers of soy oil and is one of the largest markets for palm oil globally. With the roundtables being established keeping in mind the case of sustainability for the procurement and usage of soy oil and palm oil, and India playing a major role in both, it becomes extremely important to study how sustainable the Indian market is in terms of product manufacturing and usage involving soy oil and palm oil.
      The previous papers have done an extensive study on RSPO in India, the global presence, and the impact of RTRS. They have a lot of quantitative and qualitative data regarding the presence of RTRS and RSPO. However, a gap exists, as RSPO and RTRS have not been analyzed together in the Indian context. Thus, this gap shall be addressed in this paper- we attempt to analyze the latest RTRS and RSPO in India by referencing previous papers and looking up the public domain for recent information specific to RSPO and RTRS in India.
      This paper is a literature review of previous papers on RSPO in Indian reference and RTRS and adds updated information. A comparative analysis of the presence of RSPO and RTRS in India is also added. Both RSPO and RTRS have a lot to increase their influence in the Indian market- especially RTRS.
      The paper concludes with recommendations for enhancing the influence and opens further discussion on implementing the recommendations and alternative recommendations, if any, in the future.

      Authors: Suchitra Bhargava; Josraj Arakkal
      Abstract: India - a land of vast cultural & linguistic diversity, where ‘word of mouth’ plays a crucial role in building brands. Public Relations have strongly emerged as an indispensable function for protecting and enhancing reputation. With 70% population of the nation living within the rural or semi-urban geographies, and nearly 34% of the same, annually migrating to urban cities in search of a better livelihood and employment, the role of regional Public Relations becomes more intrinsic to "Integrated Communications and Marketing strategies” for brands. The research paper attempts to understand the following: a) Evolution of consumer consumption and engagement through the lens of regional Public Relations in India.
      b) Introduction of the concept of G-LO-RI: Global – Local-Regional.
      c) Challenges faced by professionals/ agencies. The research aims to emphasize the need and importance of regional Public Relations. With the help of in-depth interviews and secondary data, the research will deduce the opportunities and scope to grow in this unorganized and untapped regional territories pan India. The research paper has considered variables - demographic factors, purchasing power, access and dissemination of information and news, effects of social channels and influencers, regional content consumption patterns, and urbanization. The qualitative study of these factors aims to share an outlook and future of regional Public Relations in India. As per existing information available at the time of drafting this research paper, there was no such material or reporting evidence in the context of the role and relevance of regional Public Relations in India. This research paper aims to highlight the current ecosystem, gaps, and key findings and showcase the importance, growth, and challenges of regional Public Relations in India. Interpretations/Implications: This study found that the Regional Public Relations industry has grown multi-folds in the past two decades. There have been many contributing factors instrumental towards this growth size, scale, and reach. This study included a mix of national public relations agency professionals and regional Public Relations agency owners/founders. They shared their journey and explained the concept, growth and evolution, agency revenue model, team size, opportunities, and challenges on the whole. The level of growth is varied region-wise, while Western, Northern, and Southern regions are hot spots of growth of regional Public Relations business, Eastern and North-East region remain a potential growth market. It was also observed that the affiliate model or the associate model of business is prevalent in the industry. The upcoming trends and practices were also discussed with the participants. The agencies have relied heavily on traditional media for a long time, but there is a gradual shift towards creating more digital content, which is data-driven. In due course of the study, it was evident that industry spending differed from one region to another. FMCG, followed by Automobile and Telecom, were the front runners in spends on regional Public Relations, Government and Education sectors have also caught up. The variation is observed due to the general demand and supply rule and socio-cultural factors, including language, customs, lifestyles & values, playing a crucial role. The researcher also came across some looming challenges that the industry currently faces, and recommendations have also been shared at the end of this paper.

      Abstract: Music has proven to play a vital role in social and emotional development in teenagers and young adults. From contemplation, developing self-identity, understanding interpersonal relationships, and providing possibilities of experience mastery, agency, and self-control with the help of self-directed activities, music helps its audience develop in all aspects of life. In specific, Rock music, since its existence has been more than entertainment, artists expressed themselves and shared their opinions through their musical pieces. Infamous for promoting drugs and alcohol, Rock Music used its platform to enlighten the audience about taboo topics like racism, inequality, and other social issues. This research paper uses a qualitative methodology approach to understand Rock Music listeners’ points of view. Data was collected through ‘in-depth interviews’ of 15 participants hailing from different parts of the country. Rock Music has several positive effects on the listeners. Rock can elevate moods, induce emotions, helps the listeners be more productive and creative with their everyday work, and constantly motivate them to do better in every aspect of life. Rock provides a platform to express feelings and vent out all the angst, especially for those who otherwise do not voice their opinions because of their nature in general. Rock Music has been able to shape personalities, characteristics, and thought processes. Moreover, majorly, Rock Music helps people with anger management.

      Authors: Shreya Kaushik; Nilesh Gokhale
      Abstract: The online environment has long been a sensory interaction between a brand or product and its consumers through visual imagery and sonic elements. While newer technologies have developed that cater to a customer's more psychological need for haptics (touch), gestation, and olfaction, brands have not explored its true potential. Immersions and other forms of Human-Computer interaction have vastly developed and present scope for more than just a single sense for online consumers. While brands are employing these multisensory interfaces (vs. single-sensory) in certain product categories, it remains to be seen whether customers who unknowingly experience sensations online want to adapt to it. Several product categories could find multisensory elements beneficial. This study aims to delve deeper and understand the motivations of such behavior and identify the need for a customer to engage all its senses beyond the traditional visuals and sound while interacting with brands virtually for a more holistic experience. While external environmental factors such as pandemics have resulted in the inevitable loss of physical touchpoints, the aim is to determine whether sensory elements beyond images and sounds will benefit customer engagement.

      Abstract: The study of a person's opinion of their own body is the study of "body image." While the definition was not much complicated, the arguments around the "Body Image" have numerous folds, from weight and size to appearance and normality. There can be a long list of things that can affect a person's body image concept and make them feel good about themselves or even dread being in their bodies. The source can be anything from one’s peers to the brands advertising their products with the help of models and celebrities. In this research, we will focus on the advertisements impacting the self-body image. The advertisers take the help of models and celebrities to impact the minds of their viewers and nudge them to try their product. In today’s world, a consumer’s self-image is targeted by how an advertisement is made. The research used a mixed-method approach to imply the finding of the study. The study validated and established the identified and the proposed construct and implied that the advertisements impact the viewers to attain or aspire for the sure self-body image. However, for a brief period, the effect and impact it creates cannot be overruled entirely.

  • Exploring an Approach to Estimate Runoff in an Ungauged Mixed Urban Micro
           Catchment - A Case Study, Pune, India

      Authors: Mugdha Kshirsagar; Rushikesh Satpute, Digant Chavda, Kanchan Khare
      Abstract: Sustainable and integrated water resource management needs an hour, and achieving accurate estimation of runoff is key. The decision-making on urban landscaping planning for low-impact development techniques depends largely on the accuracy of rainfall. The haphazardly developed cities in India are encountering flooding crises due to the unexpected expansion. These mixed urban catchments comprise a muddle of residential, commercial, urban-rural, and industrial zones in any combination. Due to this change in urban catchments, the hydrological cycle gets affected and results in elevated runoff volume. The solutions to these are therefore necessary to be planned at a micro catchment level. This paper aims to explore an approach to calculate the runoff of such a micro mixed urban catchment. The geographical scope of this study is the fringe boundary of Pune city. For this ungauged basin, the basic mass balance equation was used to estimate runoff values compared with the runoff values calculated from empirical equations previously developed. From this comparison, it is observed that runoff values obtained from empirical equations were underestimated, which may be due to rapid land-use caused by urbanization. Hence, a need was felt to re-evaluate the coefficients of these empirical models, which take into cognizance the current scenario and its allied changes over the years.
      An attempt is made to modify the coefficients of empirical equations considering precipitation as the primary parameter. These modified coefficients fetched better runoff results than the runoff results obtained from the coefficients of previously established empirical equations. However, even with these modified coefficients, the runoff results were underestimated, which may be because of not considering the physical characteristics of the catchment in these equations. Therefore, to increase the accuracy of these results, a numerical model that considers these catchment characteristics was chosen. In the present study, a dynamic rainfall-runoff model - stormwater management models (SWMM) is used and compared to assess runoff for an ungauged micro-catchment. The runoff results achieved from these SWMM models better reproduced the hydrologic and hydraulic behavior of the study area (with RMSE of 2.51) by considering detailed catchment characteristics compared to those obtained from all the other empirical models.

      Authors: K. Shanthi; Saritha Nittala
      Abstract: Human Rights are inalienable. As stated by the UN Charter, gender equality is the fundamental right of every human being. As stated by the Vienna Declaration, women's and girls' rights are inalienable, integral, and form an indivisible part of universal human rights. The entire world has raised its voice and has reached its peak in the 1990s. India, precariously being a male-dominated society, has always looked down on a woman as a vulnerable group, to be dependent, owing to certain sociological, political, and biological conditions. Gender-based violence, as stated by the UN declaration, includes violence against women. It brings within it the broader framework of gender-based discrimination.
      In every nook and corner, we see and hear about violence against a girl child/ women irrespective of their age, caste, creed, social and economic conditions, and the happenings that shackle all humanity with ignominy. These instances profligately eliminate their basic human rights. Intimate Partner Violence is such a kind of violence, which is distinct from domestic violence and is most common among couples. It is a behavior prevailing in an intimate relationship that leads to physical, psychological, or sexual harm. It is restricted to marital status and extends to non-marital, extramarital relationships, dating couples, live-in relationships, and non-discriminatory. There are instances where women also abuse men in intimate relations. In cases of self-defense, women can be more violent against men. However, overwhelming instances illustrate women as victims in the hands of their male partners, existing or ex-partners. Though attached a social stigma to these relationships, the abuse meted in the hands of their perpetrators affects the physical and psychological traits.
      This paper mainly emphasizes the nature of Intimate Partner Violence, its instincts, the psychological disorders, and its effects on their right to live with dignity and concludes with possible suggestions and recommendations.

      Abstract: Firstly, the motive behind this research is to know about the factors that lead to Job Satisfaction; secondly, the most authoritative factor of Job Satisfaction; thirdly, to find out which generation is the most satisfied with their current job across different generations of people. The study provides a descriptive and comparative analysis of working professionals from all domains, industries, gender, age, and sectors across India selected based on random sampling using quantitative research methods. It aims to analyze the results on SPSS based on a survey in a close-ended and Likert-scale based questionnaire. Baby boomers are the most satisfied with their job. Generation X is satisfied but lesser than Baby Boomers. Generation Y and Generation Z are not satisfied. Still, Millennials are more satisfied than Generation Z. Their dominant factor for job satisfaction is Job Security, Work Culture, Equality, and Career Growth Opportunities. Not much research has been done on Gen Z by researchers, as they are young and will be entering the market. This study focuses on Gen Z. The findings will help analyze people of different ages to their work and participation levels. The HR could formulate their policies and practices according to the findings generated, which will help reshape their reward structure, decide how they can manage talent, control bad attrition, and a basis for further research, if anyone wants to study particularly about one factor.

      Abstract: The establishment of the International Criminal Tribunal's post-World War II is the clear sign of augmented figure of International Crimes especially. The culmination of flagship tribunals like Yugoslavia and Rwanda opened the new phase for several significant questions such as the maintenance of humanitarian principles throughout the investigation, relevancy of evidence, authenticity, and overall mechanism and its legality too. The chances of an independent investigation mechanism for international crimes may also not be denied. Under such a state of affairs, the issues of collection, preservation, and scrutiny of the evidence of the most serious International Crimes and violations of normative principles set out by International Criminal Law becomes crucial to know to ensure fair and transparent justice. Indeed, the investigation procedure required for such fairness and transparency demands unequivocal maintenance of humanitarian principles throughout the process and legality for the sake of legal authority behind. Consequently, the present paper counts the impact of the investigation mechanism on criminal for international crimes and the existence of the symptoms of humanitarian principles with its legality by analyzing several International Instruments, Judicial Decisions, and other fact findings on the record.

      Abstract: Enormous amount of electrical energy is consumed in urban areas by means of street lights. Currently, the street lights are turned on and off manually which will lead to wastage of electrical energy. Due to inadequate dimming and low efficiency of lights, current is being wasted. The main aim of this smart LED system is to create a street light which will behave according to its surrounding. This LED will turn on automatically during dark time and off during bright time with the help of LDR. It will remain dim when there is no one near the light and turns on bright when people pass by it. By doing this, huge amount of energy is being saved. Though solar energy is efficient, it can’t work during rainy season. Thus, piezoelectric sensor is a good replacement of it. It converts the pressure that applied on it to electrical energy. This sensor is fixed in the road which will convert the pressure applied to it by the vehicles to electrical energy which can be utilized by the LEDs. Finally, this system aims to present an overview of a profitable and green solution to the energy consumption problem imposed by street lighting.

  • Postmodernism: The American T.V. Show, 'Family Guy, As a Politically
           Incorrect Document

         This is an Open Access Article Open Access Article

      Authors: Tyron Tyson Smith; Ajit Duara
      Abstract: Postmodernism is a movement that grew out of modernism. Movements in art, literature, and cinema focused on a particular stance. The visual artists who created entertainment focused on expressing the creator herself/himself beginning from German expressionism to modernism, surrealism, cubism, etc. These art movements played an important part in what an artist (literature, art, and visual) portrayed to his or her audience.
      As perspectives played an important part, an understanding of what the artist needed to portray was critical. Modernism dealt with this portrayal, which came about due to the changes taking place in society. In terms of the industry, where the overall product dealt with features like individualism, experimentation and absurdity, modernism dealt with a need to overthrow past notions of what painting, literature, and the visual arts needed to be. "After World War II, the focus moved from Europe to the United States, and abstract expressionism (led by Jackson Pollock) continued the movement's momentum, followed by movements such as geometric abstractions, minimalism, process art, pop art, and pop music."
      Postmodernism helped do away with these shortcomings. An understanding of postmodernism is explored in this paper. The main point which sets it apart is concepts like pastiche, intersexuality, and spectacle. Concerning pop culture, an understanding of referencing is a constant trait used by postmodern art.
      Postmodern television and the central part of this study applied to the popular animated American TV show, 'family guy' is a postmodern show in its truest form, while attempting to use certain aspects of postmodernism tropes to help emphasize that visual art can be considered a historical document while doing an in-depth analysis of the visual text of 'family guy by itself, several other research papers were used to help further put in stone that 'family guy' is a true representation of postmodern television. It is divided into two phases of data collection: context analysis, which involves a qualitative study. The second being in-depth interviews (also qualitative) which in itself helps give a subjective view of participants between the ages of 20 and 28. These comprise students who are familiar with the show and the concepts of the show. All of them, both frequent viewers of the show and those also politically informed of world politics, helped further emphasize the concept of the paper, which was the idea of how a television show in all its absurd narrative and pastiche functions as a historical document.
      The purpose of this study, along with the results for this research, is to help bring about the comprehension of how postmodern shows are influenced by other past events, figures of history, etc.; this understanding can explain how a television show like 'family guy could be considered a historical document – by its narrative, by the cultural references connected to these said events, and also with the help of paintings, which the makers of the show use to design the episode of the show, and which reflect and refer to the actual historical figures. Historiography is being proven to be biased in more ways than one, which leads us to an understanding of a different narrative depending on one’s own opinions of history and historical documents as we know it.

      Authors: Sanket Devlekar; Vidyavati Ramteke
      Abstract: Information security is shifting from a traditional perimeter-based approach to an identity-based approach where the organization's boundaries are where their digital identities exist. The organization has multiple stakeholders having access to various organization resources. Systems and applications are part of organization resources that help them achieve their business goals. These systems and applications are internally or externally exposed to allow all stakeholders to have seamless access, thus making identity and access management a big challenge. Identity and Access Management (IAM) is a fundamental part of information security. It plays a critical role in keeping the organization's information security posture resilient to cyber attacks. This paper will identify various components of an IAM solution that are essential and should be considered while implementing and assessing the IAM solution and provides a high-level IAM framework that will allow information security professionals to assess the IAM security posture of an organization.

      Authors: Surya Prakash Biswal; Mugdha S Kulkarni
      Abstract: In the present digital era, organizations worldwide are facing several opportunities and challenges in safeguarding and preserving significant data that are essential in the efficient functioning of organizational activities. Organizations have realized and understood the importance of data collection and analysis to influence target achievements and meet futuristic demands. Many small-scale enterprises and start-ups have also initiated decisions to implement technologies that enable a positive long-term impact. Due to these requirements, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) implementation has become a necessity to ensure future sustenance and functionality of existing and growing organizations. The operational activities in the organizational environment are forced to comply with the general data protection regulation policies and framework. The European Union general data protection regulation, which was imposed in May 2018 (European Union General Data Protection Regulation, 2016), has proven to be effective, both within the country's internal boundaries and globally. However, many organizations are still not familiar with the general data protection regulation compliance policies. The emergence of general data protection regulation has been a recent interest in the activities of various organizational sectors as they are attempting to understand the policies and compliance requirements on the implementation of GDPR applications. The research intends to explore the implications between the GDPR and emerging technologies and suggests various recommendations for organizations to implement and follow the GDPR guidelines that could enhance organizational activities.

      Abstract: Home automation is now extremely common in Internet of things services and devices with a range of assurances to improve health, lifestyle, and customer wellbeing. In terms of its success and apparent utility for humans, intelligent homes possess various safety concerns resulting from the diversified, vast-range, and nuanced nature of IoT. Previous studies have talked about security and privacy issues. However, we observe that they have not addressed the risk assessment of each smart home component and corresponding security objective along with additional factors that affect a smart home security posture. In this study, we have proposed a framework defining a standard level of security and then analyzing each component concerning it. There are so many vulnerabilities, but all cannot be assessed due to the heterogeneity of devices and their connection in a small network. IoT can support a wide range of technologies and programs in various domains, including smart cities and smart houses. For monitoring, data exchange, and other operations in the given service, IoT smart objects communicate with other elements such as proxies, mobile devices, and data collectors. While such components help solve various social issues and provide consumers with modern advanced services, their restricted computing capacities render them vulnerable to well-known protection and privacy risks.

      Authors: Dhaval Anjaria; Mugdha Kulkarni
      Abstract: Adopting DevOps means increased collaboration between development and operations teams and faster release cycles through a shift to automation. Using Dev Ops brings with it several advantages in the development of software. Security, however, is often neglected in DevOps due to the fast release cycle. Therefore Dev Sec Ops has emerged as an extension to DevOps that attempts to integrate security with Dev Ops practices, which is not without its challenges. DevOps, and by extension Dev Sec Ops, represents a significant change in the culture, tooling, and processes used in software development. Therefore, when implementing DevSecOps, teams and their organizations need to be aware of the challenges it brings and how to address those challenges for a DevSecOps implementation to be effective. Literature on DevSecOps exists that outlines practices and principles to do this. This paper uses a grounded theory approach to do a systematic literature review of academic literature to find the factors that contribute to an effective DevSecOps implementation. It attempts to reconcile the challenges of DevSecOps with ways of mitigating them and the advantages that a DevSecOps implementation can bring. The paper thus outlines methods of effectively implementing DevSecOps as described in academic literature.

      Authors: Dr. Rozina Chohan; Engr. Murk Chohan, Irfan Mir Chohan, Farhana Mir Chohan
      Abstract: Inter-organizational knowledge sharing basically connects two or more firms with one another in exchange relationship for skills, expertise and knowledgeable personnel. Knowledge plays a key role in organizational performance but it is given a very little attention in terms of information security and requires addressing security concerns due to following reasons: First, because retailing is the most victimized channel due to online trade. Second, if organizational criminal wings can compromise the information system of one firm, they can attack other firms too. Hence, identity theft is a collective problem. A security breach is among the top three business stories and identity theft is the key reason why it occurs in online retailing. Identity theft is a serious issue of society at a large and its prevention requires knowledge sharing by several actors. Through different case studies, interviews and theoretical and empirical analysis, this study highlights some unknown side of prevention collaboration in the retail industry in the United Kingdom (UK) which is of theoretical and practical importance. This paper theoretically furthers our understanding of how communication of organizations with comparable goals is handled differently in information security management. Practically, it evaluates relationships of retailing firms, online fraud forums and law enforcement departments in the fraud prevention process. Our research outlines how retailers' partnerships with different stakeholders will help them solve and reduce identity theft by presenting a structure for inter-organizational fraud prevention in retailing organizations.

Friday sermons are observed to be an important medium at conveying important messages and reminders to the Muslim community, which is held every Friday. The technique of delivering a sermon will have a great impact on the congregation who listens to the sermon. This is becasue an impactful verbal delivery which is accompanied nonverbally, will provide an optimal impact to its audience. The combination of nonverbal and verbal communication will also increase the effectiveness of the sermon. This is because KNV is an important factor in attracting the audience’s interest and attention at continuing to listen to the sermon while receiving the conveyed message. Therefore, KNV is essentially needed by an effective sermon orator. This study is a quantitative research, which used a survey method involving 82 orators who responded to the questionnaire in order to find out the level of their on KNV. The findings show that the KNV among these Friday sermon orators who are based in Hulu Terengganu District achieve an overall mean which is at a moderately high level of 3.42, namely physical appearance 3.72, limb movement 3.28, facial expression 3.28, occultic 3.09, vocal 3.52 and chronological 3.60. Findings from this study is expected to encourage sermon orators to pay more attention on KNV during sermon delivery so that important messages can be effectively conveyed to the Muslim community and achieve the desired goals.

      Authors: Akhmedov Mukhammadzhakhongir Kidirbaevich; Isomatov Yusuf Pulatovich
      Abstract: The article deals with the issues of the emergence of a new stressed state of rocks during the development of deposits and the formation of several deformations of the sides of the quarries. It is noted that among which gravitational slope deformations in the form of landslides, talus and mudslides are of decisive importance. All these types of deformation are observed in the Sary-Cheku, Kalmakyr, Kurgashinkan and others deposits. As a result of the analysis of the deformation of the quarry walls, the main conclusions were made, which can serve as a basis for the study and forecasting of landslide and other types of deformations.
      The issues of the technogenic (anthropogenic) impact of industrial enterprises and quarries of the Almalyk region on the environment are also considered. As a result of the infiltration of polluted waters of quarries, dumps, slag ponds and tailing dumps of factories, there is a penetration of polluting components into underground groundwater. Under the influence of the infiltration flow, the chemical composition of soils changes, and several polluting chemical compounds accumulate on their solid particles. Surface wastewater associated with the washing out of sludge and slag from industrial waste storage facilities is also susceptible to pollution.

      Abstract: The article analyzes the oil and gas content of the southeastern part of the Bukhara-Khiva region. It is shown that this territory is the main promising target for prospecting for new oil, gas and hydrocarbon deposits. It was revealed that the main productive deposits are carbonate deposits. It has been established that the most widespread and large ones are massive deposits in traps of the structural-lithological type, confined to the Callovian-Oxfordian reef deposits and distinguished by high capacity and filtration properties. It is argued that the lower part of the reservoirs is flooded in all fields of this type. The characteristic is given of 44 open oil, oil and gas condensate, gas condensate and gas fields of the specified region. Pre-Jurassic deposits contain hydrocarbons. The features of the structural plans of carbonate and salt-anhydrite formations and their influence on the location of oil and gas deposits within the southeastern part of the Bukhara-Khiva region for increasing hydrocarbon reserves have been determined. The fields under development in the stage of deep drilling have been clarified. Recommendations for deepening geological exploration are offered.

      Abstract: Privatization is an initiative or process in which the selling-off of the state owned enterprises (SOEs) occurs. This process can also be seen when the government of a certain country contract outs the state services. Pakistan, as one of the developing country in the world enjoys a specific status due to its geographical locations, does not stand as a nation that participates unduly in privatizing the government assets. Today, despite the government's urge, some unforeseen circumstances and incidents that happen in Pakistan are not to attract the foreign direct investment from the investors, who desire to invest in SOEs. The aim of this research is to explain the impact of the incorporation of Privatization commission of Pakistan and the impact of selling-off of SOEs on the economic growth of the country and on other macroeconomic indicators. The data has been collected from different articles and from the government released statistics keeping in view the reviews of international organization such as World Bank and International Monetary Fund (IMF), catering the time period from 1991 to 2018. The figures of revenue from the sale of SOEs in different time periods are taken from the annual report of 2018 from the ministry of Privatization and could be relied upon. The research study has found a consistent rise, over the period of time, in rate of GDP, while the floats of privatization remained unsteady.

      Abstract: This article attempts to review the analysis of migration processes in relation to interethnic relations. After gaining independence, the new Uzbekistan faced not only economic problems but also social, including ethno-social nature. It is acknowledged that during the time of the Soviet republic, when carrying out the national-territorial delimitation, attention was paid to such factors as economic gravity, approximate national borders, administrative convenience of management, ethnographic-territorial areas, the geographic location of the republic, etc. As a result, many representatives of the Central Asian nations found themselves not on "their" territory. Uzbekistan has become one of the republics with the most variegated ethnic composition of the population. And therefore, research in this direction is relevant.

      Abstract: Internet of Things (IoT) a growing phenomenon, refers to the seamless integration of things into the information network. The security in IoT is tampered because of the various attacks which happen due to resource constrained nature of the devices in the network. Thus, although IoT is evolving as an attractive next generation networking paradigm, it can be adopted only when the security issues are resolved. This implies that, in a dynamic and collaborative IoT environment, the devices need to be trustworthy. This paper proposes a gateway based trust management system and an algorithm for computation of trust for the devices. The system focuses on making the computations on the devices lightweight and the network robust. The proposed system is tested against various IoT attacks and results demonstrate that it can clearly identify the malicious device if any, in the IoT network.

      Authors: Mohammed Taj Hejazi
      Abstract: Supply chain mitigation strategies have not received much attention from researchers and practitioners on how to manage the supply chain risk in the turbulent business environment. There is little awareness and understanding in supply chain risk management literature on the concept of supply chain resilience (SCR). SCR has been emphasized throughout the past decade, and organizations are aware of its influence on organizational performance. As a result, SCR is essential as it influences organizational performance. The literature indicates that a lack of SCR negatively affects organizational performance. However, the literature does not theorize and provide theoretical evidence on how SCR affects organizational performance with the help of knowledge sharing. This study aims to examine the influence of SCR on organizational performance with the effect of knowledge sharing. Research questions include: 1 How SCR contributes to organizational performance' 2 Does knowledge sharing influence organizational performance' 3. How does knowledge sharing affect the relationship between SCR and organizational performance' This study, based on available literature, will present the research model of how SCR affects organizational performance. Examples of small case studies will also include for better understanding. This study will also provide some important pieces theoretical and practical implications.

      Abstract: The food supply and demand situation for the 2020 fiscal year concerning the main seasonal crops in Nigeria was unpredictable due to the effect of Covid-19 pandemic. Federal and state governments laid much emphasis as a result on agriculture, especially crop production in order to produce food enough to ameliorate hunger, which is one of the negative effects of Covid-19. Nigeria been a rain fed dependent agricultural nation, follows the dictate of weather and other weather elements in her agricultural activities. With climate change and the effect of Little Dry Season, there was a reduction in rainfall in mid-July through August 2020.
      Rice and Maize which are among the staple foods in Nigeria requires about 750mm to 1200mm of rainfall to thrive. The mean monthly rainfall recorded in our study area (part of Anambra River Basin) consisting of Ayamelum, Anambra West, Anambra East, Oyi and Dunukofia local government areas are 21.15mm and 3.25mm for July, 2020 and August, 2020 respectively. As a result of the shortage of rainfall in these two months, the farmers and the authors observed these negative outcomes which are early maturity of crops; early harvesting of crops as well as poor yields for early season crops. While during the late season planting, farming was affected by the hardening of the ground as a result of absence of rainfall; undissolved fertilizers in farm lands; partial germination of scattered seedlings; Ant, Birds and Rodent infestation and stunted growth. Base on our observation, it was concluded that yields and harvest would be poor and subsequently there would be shortage of food and price hike in food items. The paper recommends for the revitalization of the moribund irrigation facility in Omor, Ayamelum local government area to provide for the shortfall in moisture that is likely to occur in the absence of rainfall.

      Abstract: The novel coronavirus (COVID-19), identified within the Wuhan, Hubei Province of China in November 2019, needs distinct attention because of its fatal nature. The spreading of any infectious diseases is generally prevented by quarantine and containment or locking down of the populations in danger. Countries suffering from COVID-19 are declaring the country lockdown and restricting public movement. India also has declared full lockdown and restricted public movement to a large extent. Such drastic steps have a severe psychological impact on populations. Being locked up for weeks in a very confined space with the same group of individuals being depressed, nervous, and tired, which is further aggravating various domestic and interpersonal issues. A web-based survey was formed which supported a cross-sectional sampling method and collected data across different working-class population groups in India. The responders had a beginner level of knowledge about the COVID-19 infection and adequate knowledge about its preventive aspects was unknown. Results indicate that 13% of the respondents experienced severe anxiety, 11% moderate anxiety, and 28% are mildly anxious. The results suggest that governments should find effective ways to disseminate unbiased COVID-19 knowledge to reduce population insecurity and provide the best mental equipment to cope with the pandemic.

      Abstract: The objective of the study is to know whether creditors terms and Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) accounting process affect MSMEs debtor’s management and to know the need for novel Information Technology (IT) tools. This study proposes a definite set of survey questionnaires to measure variables such as the influence of suppliers’ credit policies and the accounting process of selected MSMEs. The sample size of this study focuses on various MSMEs owners or accountants in Oman. The questionnaire survey findings are based on 44 MSMEs that responded. The study used Partial Least Squares Structural Equation Modeling (PLS-SEM) to analyze creditors terms, accounting process of MSMEs with its impact on MSMEs debtors’ management. MSMEs' accounting process and suppliers' credit policies do influence MSMEs debtors’ management. Increased working capital risks due to inefficient debtors’ management may lead MSMEs to be resource-efficient in managing their accounting process by using IT tools. The practice of using IT tools by MSMEs can scientifically manage their outstanding debtors which leads to a higher level of hostile working capital management and MSMEs sustainable development. MSMEs play a key role in the development of the national economy, there is a dearth of similar published MSMEs broad studies in Oman that validates the importance of the current research.

      Abstract: In this study, classroom discourse is chosen as the subject to be analysed in terms of the basic structures of conversation analysis (CA) which are turn-taking organisation, sequence organisation, repair and action formation, as developed principally by Harvey Sacks, Emanuel Schegloff and Gail Jefferson. As a form of educational talk, classroom interaction should be scrutinised not only in a conversational perspective, but also from an institutional view. Many controversies and debates regarding this particular discourse are present from the conversation analytic point of view, indicating that it is indeed an important subject that need extended studies on. This study analyses learner-learner interaction in task-oriented, learner-centred classrooms, instead of traditional classroom interaction, from the conversation analytic perspective. It helps expanding the research on this subject to a new focus, which is modern classroom interaction.

      Abstract: Malaysian public universities are bracing for funding cuts and moving towards autonomous status causing them to be more innovative in generating income. Crowdfunding has been part of the solutions. Unfortunately, the emerging of university crowdfunding platforms in Malaysia is relatively slow as compared to the universities in the U.K. and U.S. This study aims to explore approaches and crowdfunding models used by the universities. This study highlights different approaches used by the universities in incorporating crowdfunding into their funding strategies, which can be differentiated into two main groups, namely setting up a university-operated crowdfunding platform and using existing third-party platforms. The investigation on the Skolafund crowdfunding shows that it could be an example of which the crowdfunding model fits Malaysian universities. The findings in this paper can help the universities to ease the burden due to the budget cut impact by utilising crowdfunding.

      Abstract: Electronic prescribing simply means writing the prescriptions with the support of hand held personal digital assistant and touch screen or it could be typed in using a laptop or a personal computer. E-prescribing also is referred to as a means of sending prescriptions electronically from a doctor to a pharmacist or a patient. However, in either case, there should be minimal or no usage of paper is strictly adhered to (Spooner, 2005). Although e-prescription has many benefits associated with it, the adoption rate in the country is very less. Many factors could be attributed to the slow adoption of e-prescription out of which the attitude of physicians play a major role. Therefore the study aims to assess the efficiency of using e-prescribing facility. This is a descriptive study which involves analysis of the collected data through questionnaire. Simple random technique of selecting the samples was used. Hundred physicians were approached with the help of the consultancy, out of which 90 physician responded. Survey was also conducted through mail. The result shows that majority of the physicians had positive attitude towards e-prescription. The experience of the physician and E-prescribing facility helps to spend lesser time on prescribing the drugs when compared to hand written prescribing (P<0.05). The electronic prescriptions will improve the competence of health care system, when the physicians start using it in their practice. The greatest challenge in e-prescribing is there is no standard guidelines, cost incurred, security and confidentiality of the information prescribed by the physician.

There is currently no cure for this neurodegenerative disorder, but there are therapies available on the market based on substances that inhibit acetylcholinesterase and cognitive symptoms as a way to improve cholinergic hypofunction. Polyneuridine is the main indole alkaloid extracted from the bark and leaves of Aspidosperma polyneuron, a brazilian plant species popularly known as peroba-rosa. The objective of this work is to investigate, through a scientific prospection, the polyneuridine alkaloid, as well as its anticholinesterase property, since it is known that the therapy of this disease is based on cholinesterase inhibitors. To carry out the study, two of the main publication databases of journals such as PubMed and Web of Science were analyzed. To search for scientific production, we inserted the following keywords combined with the terms in english to carry out the search in international databases: “Polyneuridine”, “Polyneuridine AND anticholinesterase properties”, “Polyneuridine AND Alzheimer's disease”. The need for studies on this alkaloid is urgent, especially since Brazil holds the plant species that produces the most polyneuridine, but the plant species Aspidosperma polyneuron is on the red line of extinction due to the unbridled exploitation of its wood. It is concluded that if this exploration scenario continues, Brazil will lose a very important pharmacological genetic resource of its plant flora.

  • The Kurdish Community from the Abbasids to Safavids; Sharafkhan
           Bedlisi’s Perspective

         This is an Open Access Article Open Access Article

      Authors: Dr. Nariman Abdalla Ali
      Abstract: Sharafkhan Bedlisi began writing Kurdish historiography in the late sixteenth century by writing Sharafnama. Sharafnama includes the history of the Kurdish emirates from the Abbasid caliphates to the end of the years (1596-1597), i.e. until the Safavid era. Sharafnama is basically a continuation of the same method of traditional Islamic historiography, i.e. political, military and family event writing. However, the introduction of Sharafnama regarding the characteristics of Kurdish people and the Kurdish society from the Abbasid to Safavid eras can differentiate this historical work from the contemporary and earlier historical works. In this regard, Sharafnama can be considered as a work different from the tradition of Islamic historiography. Sharafkhan Bedlisi maintains that religionism, irrationality, chaos (lack of concentration), lack of unity thoughts, fratricidal desires, lack of foresight, importance of warrior-ship and unwillingness to establish a local government are the most important characteristics of Kurdish people and Kurdish society from the Abbasid to Safavid eras. The present study attempts to discuss the aforementioned characteristics in a descriptive-analytical manner.

      Abstract: Wetlands are one of the most important and rich eco system. Deh akro II wetland complex is unique inland type of wetlands comprise of 35 wetlands in middle of Nara desert on bank of Nara Canal. They face a lot of degradation because of anthropogenic activities in the surrounding areas and lack of rainfall in last 2 decades. Chotiari wetland complex located in south east of Deh akro II wetland complex, it comprises of several fresh water lakes converted into reservoir in year 2003 for better irrigation purposes. This conversion of wetlands into reservoir does not did very well for surrounding agricultural lands and natural vegetation. So in this study two technique of Fractional cover mapping were used to classify three types of land covers in both study areas. Temporal analysis was performed using the Landsat 7 ETM+ image of year 2000 and Landsat 8 OLI image of year 2018. For better results NDVI, EVI and NDWI were also calculated. For Deh akro II wetland complex Kappa accuracy statistics for year 2000 is 84% and for year 2018 its 87%. Several changes were recorded in this time span of 18 years as 42% of water bodies area has been decreased, 48% of Agriculture area has been increased and 68% of natural vegetation area has been increased. Increase in amount of vegetation and agriculture indicates that with better management and planning, effects of climate change over the area can be minimized. Kappa accuracy statistics for Chotiari Wetland complex for year 2000 is 71% and for year 2018 it’s 73%. Enormous changes were noted in 18 years as Agriculture area has been decreased up to 91%, water area has been increased up to 15% and vegetation has unluckily decreased up to 98% in reservoir area. This huge decrease in Agriculture and natural vegetation is an alarming situation for the wildlife and native population as well as authorities of Chotiari wetland complex.

      Abstract: The most important pillar in the strategy for modernizing resource-based economies is the transition to a new, creative model of socio-economic development. It is the ability of creative and technologically dynamic countries to develop new ideas using advanced technologies.
      However, under current circumstances, the creative economy is not the main driving force of the Russia's economic growth. This is largely due to the insufficient degree of creative initiatives in most regions and, in general, their creative underdevelopment. Creative industries in Russia are still not considered as an object of management research; there is no system for regulating the creative sector of the economy at both federal and regional levels. The choice of methodology remains an open-ended question, since there is no single approach to defining the concept and estimating creative industries. The need to fill the methodological, organizational, and managerial gaps in the sphere of the Russian creative economy proves the relevance of the chosen topic and requires its in-depth research.
      In the article, the researchers present the calculation of the Сomposite Сreativity Index for the regions of the Russian Federation in dynamics for a nine-year period based on the methodology developed by the authors. The purpose of the study is to test the proposed methodology and search for effective organizational and managerial tools for the creative industries development in the Russian regions to establish the programs of territories socio-economic development.

      Abstract: Research on military education under the rapid development and growth of armaments and equipment is booming. The field is continually gaining more key insights about this important and complex pedagogical problem. Academic interest on the systemic approach in the development of military education has consistently been a multidisciplinary effort. But perhaps systemic approach in pedagogic researchers are particularly well situated to be the leading voices on the public’s understanding of military education and many are heeding the call. With that responsibility in mind, in this paper, we offer to consider four elements of the educational process for the future of pedagogic research that we believe can help focus this line of inquiry to better ensure we address some of the most pressing problems. Based on critical assessments of the gaps in the literature, the paper cites the need to combine all elements of the educational process into a single system to achieve a focused result in the training of military personnel in educational institutions. Our list is not exhaustive, nor do we suggest that areas we do not cover are not important. Rather, we make these observations with the goal of spurring a conversation about the future of military education research, but especially a systemic approach in the development of military education.

      Abstract: Introduction: The development of data culture is considered today as a social norm of the "information society". The leaders of education systems are faced with the task of consolidating the activities of "data evangelists", "it-evangelists" (technology evangelists) in education quality management systems. Data analyst competencies should dominate management decision-making. When examining the influence of relevant competencies on the style of management decision-making, we proceed from the existing technological data infrastructure in Russia, and also take into account the role of the public sector in quality control of education.
      Materials and methods: A review of foreign and domestic sources on the problems of evidence-based management in education has been undertaken. Various aspects of the problem are compared: intercountry and subnational contexts; revealed the role of international comparative research in the development of data analytics competencies. It was studied, using the Alan Rowe methodology, the influence of data analytics competencies on the style of making management decisions. The study sample consisted of 350 people. The author's case simulators were used for the built-in diagnostics of data analytics competencies.
      Results: The empirical facts of the change in the style of making management decisions under the influence of the competencies of data analytics have been obtained. The relevant competencies were the subject of training for the heads of regional education systems on the basis of the Russian Academy of National Economy and Public Administration. The connection between the competencies of data analytics of the conceptual and analytical style of making management decisions with the content and methodology of training managers has been substantiated. A list of competencies of data analytics for scaling in the practices of training subjects of management of educational systems has been formulated.
      Discussion and conclusions: The novelty of our proposed solutions lies in the substantiation of the influence of data analytics competencies on the style of management decision-making. We expand the boundaries of the data-driven paradigm of education quality management and consider such systems in the logic of the information-analytical paradigm, where the competence of data analytics is both a condition and a resource for evidence-based education development. Conclusions are formulated about the development of a new type of culture in public administration - data-culture. Data as a valuable asset in a state with a developed data culture changes the ontology of the information state and logically leads to the idea of a new social contract.

      Abstract: The purpose of the present study is to identify the main advantages and problems of remote work for both employers and employees, and possible ways to solve them.
      The article shows a significant number of studies dealt with non-standard forms of labor organization, clarifies the essence of remote work, and examines the main aspects for its effective organization. The main advantages and problems of remote work for employers and employees, as well as possible ways to solve them, are identified based on an expert survey involving 36 experts.
      According to the conducted study, it can be concluded that the acceleration of scientific and technological progress and adverse epidemiological conditions contribute to the spread of remote work worldwide. This phenomenon has two aspects. On the one hand, remote work, firstly, reduces the unemployment rate and improves the image of the company; secondly, offers flexible working hours; thirdly, protects/retains customers and saves time/transport costs. On the other hand, remote work is associated with the difficulty in maintaining efficiency and teamwork at a high level; secondly, it restricts communication, makes it impossible to perform certain tasks at home; and thirdly, remote work leads to insufficient physical activity, causes difficulties with integration into the corporate culture, etc.

      Authors: Elena Chernysheva; Vera Budykina, Ekaterina Shadrina
      Abstract: The article is devoted to the analysis of the peculiarities of relations between the USSR and the PRC in the middle of the XX century. In a short historical period, two countries with a similar ideology and political system shifted from relations of friendship and mutual assistance to military-political confrontation, which culminated in the armed conflict on Zhenbao (Damansky) Island in March 1969. A special interest of the Chinese side in good-neighbourly relations with the Soviet Union at the initial stage of the existence of the PRC (1949-1955) is described. The authors analyze the circumstances of the deterioration of relations between the two countries since Nikita Khrushchev assumed leadership of the USSR and the condemnation of the cult of personality of Joseph Stalin. Special attention is paid to the border issue in the relationship between the two countries. It presents the different views of the PRC and the Soviet Union on the tsarist treaties with China concluded in the second half of the XIX century. Moreover, the problem of ideological confrontation between the Soviet and Chinese leadership is considered; the publications of Soviet historians which assess the actions of the PRC leadership against the Soviet Union are analyzed. The nature of "cartographic aggression" and "great power chauvinism" is revealed. Besides, typological rhetoric, common and specific features in mutual accusations of the Soviet and Chinese sides are shown. The illegality of the territorial claims of the PRC, the betrayal of socialist ideals by its leadership, attempts to discredit the Soviet Union in the international arena, and the desire to undermine the world communist movement used to be the main theses in the research of the Soviet historians of the 1960s-1980s. It is concluded that the interpretation of Sino-Soviet relations in Soviet historiography was primarily propagandistic and closely related to the state interests of the Soviet Union.

      Abstract: The article presents the results of an empirical study conducted by the authors according to the method of an online questionnaire survey (N=157) in 2020. The respondents are Russian social workers. The study is aimed at identifying the specifics of the use of digital technologies in the professional activities of social workers and managers in the social sphere. The authors raise the question of what is the real goal of introducing digital technologies: to provide assistance to service recipients or to solve organizational problems. The article analyses the effectiveness of the use of digital tools and highlights the problems in this activity. The authors also try to identify ways of solving these problems for the possible increase of the efficiency of digitalization in social work. The analysis of the respondents’ opinions has shown that among the main advantages are the increase in the efficiency of a labour organization (acceleration of data processing, automation of document management, online purchases and delivery) and obtaining the necessary information, including from other departments. The main disadvantages are technical problems: failures leading to duplicate information and software imperfections.

      Abstract: Hospitality industry plays a main role and has become a major sector in Malaysia’s economy. However, there are some challenges in the hospitality industry such as employee turnover which could have various consequences to organizations. The purpose of this research is to investigate the factors affecting employee turnover intention, either directly or indirectly. Previous studies have suggested that employee turnover intention could be affected by factors such as leadership, motivation, communication, work environment and infrastructure both directly and indirectly. Employee innovation and creativity as a mediating factor could also affect its relationship with turnover intention of employees. The research design for this study was quantitative research method using questionnaires as the data collection method. Purposive sampling was used to sample 152 hotel employees within the West of Malaysia. Structural Equation Modelling was used to analyze the data using SmartPLS software. Results indicated that leadership, motivation, communication, and work environment and infrastructure had significant relationship with employee innovation and creativity. Apart from that, leadership, motivation and communication also have significant relationship with the employee turnover intention. Turnover is a major issue within companies not only for the company’s sustainability, but also for the health and wellbeing of their employees. As an implication, organizations should understand that their leadership characteristic and environment has a tremendous impact to burnout and employee performance.

      Abstract: Identification of input fields that appear on a document is a crucial requirement while digitizing any document. This paper presents a Deep Learning based approach to detect input fields from a form or document which consists of text, images and input fields like textbox, checkbox. The forms have been crawled and labelled manually to generate a dataset for training Deep Learning models. The YOLO V3 model is trained on the labelled dataset having four classes (static text, static image, input text, checkbox) with 1500 instances. We used bounding box techniques to label the dataset. The paper presents detection of limited types of input fields generally appearing on printed forms. We also discussed how such detection models can scale and sustain higher loads. If given the labelled dataset for other types of input fields, the existing YOLO V3 can be trained for them as well. The model is trained for 3500 iterations and the accuracy achieved is 71 percent.

      Abstract: Cloud computing has gained rapid growth in the development of different fields of science and engineering. However, due to the distributed nature of cloud computing, session key generation and establishment is the pressing issue. Session key management plays the utmost important role in the secure exchange of sensitive login credentials and transaction information. Moreover, conventional session key management mechanisms are inadequate and cannot be directly adopted in cloud-based environments. Hence, session key management is very much solely needed solution for reliable cloud-based service provisioning. In mutual authentication, bi-linear key pairing cryptosystem plays a critical role to generate and establish a session key. The existing mutual authentication schemes fail to support true mutual authentication in cloud-based environments as they are vulnerable to secret key leakage, perfect forward secrecy, and untraceability. To mitigate the effect of these attacks, this research develops an efficient multi-linear key pairing cryptosystem. In this cryptosystem, challenge-response messages are used for generating and establishing a one-time shared session key. Furthermore, the performance analysis of the proposed cryptosystem depicts a significant reduction of computation cost, authentication accuracy rates, and resistance to the aforementioned attacks.

      Authors: S.V.G.V.A. Prasad
      Abstract: In recent years the use of solar energy is found to have grown by a large amount. Solar energy is renewable energy and the demand for it as clean energy shows its growth by nearly 50 percent in the past decade. It is estimated that the sun is able to generate energy within 24 hours that the entire population of the world could consume in 27 years. Solar power is the energy from the sun that is converted into thermal or electrical energy. The energy harnessed from the sun's rays is used for a variety of applications like electricity generation, to provide light for the interior environment, and many other domestic, commercial, and industrial purposes. Usage of fossil fuels for electricity production results in increased pollution and this mandates many governments to encourage moving to electricity generation using solar power. The large amount of solar energy that is available is found to be the most appealing source of electricity. Solar panels form a major part of the solar energy setup. Hence in this article let us review the various types of solar panels. This paper also deals with comparing the merits and demerits of the different types of solar panels that are available in the market. A section that presents the efficiency of the different kinds of the solar panel is also present in this paper. The role of temperature coefficient, fire rating, and hail rating in the performance of the solar panel is also addressed in this paper.

      Authors: Nagamani H Shahapure; P.M. Rekha, N. Poornima
      Abstract: The reduction in the consumption of energy by the cloud data centers is called as green cloud. Green cloud also helps in restraining the waste disposed to the environment. With the increasing demand in cloud computing, there has been an increase in the energy consumption. Green cloud can be achieved by server consolidation and proper load balancing techniques using virtual machine (VM) migration. It is a feature provided by virtualization. The virtual machines are transferred from one host to another. The overhead associated with migration is performance degradation. This can be overcome by proper load balancing techniques. This helps to curtail the number of VM migrations as well as the energy consumption. In this paper, a technique called as threshold compare and load balance algorithm (TCLBA) is proposed for optimization of the resources at the cloud provider. Two types of threshold are defined for load balancing, namely the lower and upper threshold. This algorithm works on the principle of shifting the load from a server if the load is above the upper threshold or shifting to the server if its load is below the lower threshold. The load is balanced by migrating the VMs. The workload is consolidated to smaller number of hosts such that the remaining hosts are shut down. This method solves the purpose of effective utilization of available resources with lesser energy consumption.

      Authors: Syed Raheem; Dr. Subhashish Bose
      Abstract: Owing to the powerful digital signal processors and the improvement of advanced edge adaptive algorithms there are an extraordinary number of various applications in which adaptive filters are utilized. Subband adaptive filtering algorithms can build the assembly pace of framework ID undertakings when the info signal is hued. The adaptive filter can filter the dubious noise signal, track the difference in the signal, and consistently change the boundaries to accomplish the ideal filtering impact. Another standardized subband adaptive filtering algorithm has been proposed, whose primary benefit is the lower computational intricacy when contrasted with best in class subband approaches, while keeping up comparable union execution. A connection between the adaptive subband coefficients and the ideal full band move work is determined, and the algorithm is demonstrated to create an asymptotically unprejudiced arrangement. The proficiency of the adaptive filters basically relies upon the plan procedure utilized and the algorithm of variation. The adaptive filters can be analogical plans, digital or blended which show their benefits and inconveniences, for instance, the analogical filters are low power consuming and fast response, however they address balance issues, which influence the activity of the variation algorithm.

      Abstract: Wireless communication technology is rapidly progressing due to its high quality and high speed of information transfer from one location to another. It is necessary to ensure the safety of wireless sensor networks with this progress. One of the main security concerns in WSNs is eavesdropping, an intrusion that collects information from other devices across the network. Eavesdropping attacks are insidious and it is hard to realise that they happen. When connected with a network, users can feed sensitive information inadvertently, such as passwords, account numbers, browsing, email content, etc. Security improvement in wireless network communication is therefore required.

      Abstract: From distant past to present day, the Southern region has been playing an important role in national defense and foreign affairs, with great potential to create a breakthrough for the socioeconomic development of Vietnam. However, due to historical conditions and geographical location, political instabilities were frequently seen in the Southern region under the rule of the Nguyen lords and the early Nguyen Dynasty (early 19th century), especially the instability of the relationship between three feudal countries: Dai Viet (Vietnam), Chenla (Cambodia) and Siam (Thailand) from the 17th century to the first half of the 19th century. In its Southern defense strategy to prevent Siamese invasions and maintain its position as the "protector" of Chenla as well as to develop the new land, the Nguyen Dynasty focused on building border defense formation on land and sea in the South, with the defense system on the border area of Chau Doc, Ha Tien and the Southwestern sea in the Gulf of Thailand as the focus. The Nguyen Dynasty's proper implementation of policies in the border and sea areas had brought great effects and contributed to the strong protection of Dai Viet's sovereignty over the Southern land.

      Abstract: Nowadays people living in urban are highly increasing than in rural areas. Because of the increase in population, the air which we inhale is also getting contaminated; the people who live in the rural areas want all their needs to be satisfied. Due to air pollution, people suffer from heart disease, lung cancer, and other respiratory diseases. Air pollution has a negative impact on the growth of plants. When the leaves are in close contact with the atmosphere, many pollutants interfere with the growth.[1] Because of this greediness, they set up many industries around their living areas. These industries not only satisfy their needs but also increase pollution. People are afraid of this pollution. It not only affects human beings but also the plants which give us oxygen, some of the plants can hold only a certain amount of humidity, if it increases then the plant will die. The plants in the route will also get affected by the vehicle which passes by the road. While passing the road it emits a lot of harmful gases which affect the plants in our house. So, we decided to stop these actions and thought to bring a healthy life to the plants. We come across a device that measures the pollutants in the air, it gave us some spark. And then we invented a device using IoT (Internet of Things) technology. This device helps us to find the harmful substances in the air so that we can stop the cause of air pollution and give a healthy life for the plants. It will also help us on the rooftop by providing more oxygen. Using smart wireless sensors, we can check the places. [2]

      Abstract: In this article, the authors investigate an urgent problem for the Belgorod region related to the provision of the agro-industrial complex of the region with highly qualified and innovation-oriented personnel. The results of the sociological research carried out by the authors convincingly indicate the existence of a significant gap between the requirements of modern employers to workers and the quality of knowledge, skills and abilities that university graduates currently possess. The overly theoretical nature of the education received and its isolation from the realities of production activity are noted. To eliminate the gap that has arisen, according to the authors, it is possible only if the mechanisms of social partnership between education and business are actively developed. On the example of the Belgorod State Agrarian University named after V.Ya. Gorin, the authors of the article investigate a successful example of organizing such a partnership.

      Authors: Alexey Ivanovich Plotnikov
      Abstract: This article considers social capital as the basis for intersectoral social partnership based on the interpretation of the essence of social capital, indentifyning its main features: non-monetary nature, trust, ability to self-growth with increasing frequency of use, allowing successful solving of social problems. Particular attention is paid to trust as the foundation of the organization of social interaction and an indicator of the size of social capital. As a result of comparing the concepts of social capital and intersectoral social partnership, the author identifies a key feature characterizing social capital and intersectoral social partnership – interaction with the goal of development, which in turn allows us to consider social capital and intersectoral social partnership as intercomplementary processes. Based on the consideration of the main features of social capital, its structure and essence as a process, the author concludes that social capital is the basis of intersectoral social partnership, its integral part and necessary basis for the development of civil society and the formation of a social state.

      Abstract: The data communication in the sensor networking system with cognitive radio sensor network increases the speed of packet transmission by the optimal spectrum allocation among available channel. For a large size of network architecture, the routing system needs to manage the packet transmission in an efficient routing path with optimal allocation of channel to the sensor nodes. In these optimal network allocation and routing system, the methods need to be modeled based on the parameters of channel capacity and other routing properties. In this paper, a novel optimization algorithm was proposed to estimate the dynamic change of network parameters. This can be achieved by the enhanced model of Correlative Dynamic Mapping based Optimization (CDMO). In this, it analyse traffic level in a network path and the availability of spectrum channel present at each time instant for the sensor nodes and estimate the availability if channel in it. The proposed system estimates the correlation factor between the sensor nodes and with the weight value of dynamic traffic occurs in the routing path. From these estimated properties, the optimization method selects the best attributes from overall feature set of the node arrangement. The CDMO algorithm performs the prediction of relative feature attributes and form as a clustering architecture to represent the high data transmission by reusing the spectrum of channel. The best fitness value of the convergence graph at every iteration of the optimization algorithm represents the best routing path. From the fitness of the objective function in CDMO, the best routing path and the availability of spectrum for a node can be analysed at each time instant. The experimental result justifies the efficiency of proposed work comparing to other state-of-art methods for routing and channel allocation system.

      Abstract: Proper selection of cluster count gives better clustering results in partition models. Partition clustering methods are very simple as well as efficient. Kmeans and its modified versions are very efficient cluster models and the results are very sensitive to the chosen K value. The partition clustering algorithms are more suitable in applications where the data are arranged in a uniform manner. This work aims to evaluate the importance of assigning cluster count value in order to improve the efficiency of partition clustering algorithms using two well known statistical methods, the Elbow method and the Silhouette method. The performance of the Silhouette method and Elbow method are compared with different data sets from the UCI data repository. The values obtained using these methods are compared with the results of cluster performance obtained using the statistical analysis tool Weka on the selected data sets. Performance was evaluated on cluster efficiency for small and large data sets by varying the cluster count values. Similar results obtained from the three methods, the Elbow method, the Silhouette method and the clustering by Weka. It was also observed that the fast reduction in clustering efficiency for small changes in cluster count when the cluster count is small.

      Abstract: Distributed Denial of Service Attack (DDoS) has emerged as a major threat to cyber space. A DDoS attack aims at exhausting the resources of the victim causing financial and reputational damages to it. The availability of free software make launching of DDoS attacks easy. The difficulty in differentiating a DDoS traffic from a legitimate traffic burst such as a flash crowd makes DDoS difficult to be identified. A wide range of techniques have been used in conventional networks to detect and mitigate DDoS attacks. Though the advent of Software Defined Networking (SDN) makes a network easy to be managed even SDN is vulnerable to DDoS attacks. In this case, the controller of the SDN gets overloaded with the incoming packets from the switches. In fact, a solution based on security analytics can be put in place to ward off this threat as a proactive security measure using the flow level statistics available from the SDN. Compared to the packet analysis used in traditional networks which is resource expensive the flow level statistics is relatively inexpensive. This paper focuses on the design and implementation of an attack detection system for detecting the flooding DDoS attacks TCP SYN flooding attacks, HTTP request flooding attacks, UDP flooding attacks and ICMP flooding attacks over SDN network traffic. The system uses various classification algorithms to classify a traffic into normal or attack. The feature sets for classification were arrived at using a feature selection module with ANOVA (Analysis of Variance) F-Test statistical method. Performance evaluation of each of the classifiers was carried out for the three feature sets obtained from the feature selection module using various performance measures and the results have been tabulated. The feature set which gives the best performance in detecting malicious traffic has been identified.

      Abstract: Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is a buzzword worldwide. Today many organizations are facing challenge of integration of CSR in business. Stakeholders expect some more from businesses organization than merely pursuing growth and profitability. In the year 1946, the Fortune released a story that said the owners of businesses were answerable to the outcomes of their deeds beyond a much wider scope than their bottom-line figures. This is the time when the term CSR was given so much focus. More than Ninety percent of the owners who read this, agreed to it. Bowen (1953) and Carroll (1999) have also highlighted in their research that the question is, as owners of businesses what kind of rational accountability do they have to presuppose towards the society at large' It was also defined by Bowen that, owners are expected to practice those strategies, resolutions and deeds that put them in an advantageous position and align their goals to all those important purposes which society holds.
      Social Responsibility has also gained popularity in academics as well as practical propositions since it has been found that more than ninety percent of the top 500 fortune companies portrayed CSR as a very important goal and vigorously endorse their socially responsible programmes in their annual reports. As per the Legislative bill passed by the Indian Government, all topnotch organizations are obliged to contribute at least 2 percent of their proceeds to Social responsible activities. The concept of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is old in India since many years. It arose from the 'Vedic period' when history was not recorded in India. In those days Kings had a limitation towards society and merchants displayed their own small business responsibility by building places of worship, education, inns and wells.

      Abstract: The goal is to present a comparative analysis of statistical data on the indicators of the foreign trade turnover of the Russian Federation under the conditions of economic sanctions and anti-sanctions, as well as the results of expert assessments on the current import substitution policy.
      Design/methodology/approach – methods for comparing and grouping indicators that allow comprehensively and dynamically considering the state of Russia's foreign trade turnover, taking into account changes in the country and commodity aspects in the volume of exports and imports in the context of economic sanctions and a counter food embargo.
      Conclusions – the paper proves that the decline rate in foreign trade turnover in relation to the pre-sanctioned 2013 has slowed down, which indicates the relative adaptation of the Russian economy and the effectiveness of the anti-crisis measures taken. The main recommendations have been formulated that require the concentration of protective adaptation measures on the instruments of selective protectionism with free trade measures. Originality/significance – the paper provides a comprehensive analysis of the impact of economic sanctions on the volume and structure of Russia's foreign trade in the context of growing pressure on foreign trade in a gradual increase in sanctions, and this trend should be timely detected.

      Abstract: The present research aimed to access the significance of arterial hypertension risk factors and their relationships in the high-mountain villages of the Elbrus region (2100–3500 m above the sea level). For this, 260 patients were examined in total, 190 with arterial hypertension (hereinafter AH) of the 1, 2 and 3 degrees and 70 healthy individuals.
      Methods. All the participants underwent complex examination: echocardiography; assessment of nitric oxide (NO) metabolites in the blood; heart rate variability (HRV); blood plasma lipid spectrum. Microsoft Statistica v. 10.0.1 software package was used for statistical processing. Multiple regression equations reflected the dynamics of relationships of three or more parameters (significant differences at p <0.05). Results. AH patients showed a progressive decrease in NO, an increase in sympathetic and HRV indicators, in left ventricular (LV) myocardial mass and atherogenic plasma index. The dependence of HRV indicators, LV morphofunctional parameters, hemodynamics, plasma lipid profile on NO level was revealed.
      Decreased significance of modifiable risk factors and increased lesions of ‘target organs’ with the progression of arterial hypertension were found; this explains complexity of prevention and possible therapeutic strategies.

      Abstract: Due to continual server replacement, datacenter-scale clusters are developing toward heterogeneous hardware designs. Meanwhile, datacenters are frequently used by a variety of users for a variety of purposes. Due to multi-tenant interferences, it frequently exhibits high performance heterogeneity. When contrasted to in-house dedicated clusters, deploying MapReduce on such heterogeneous clusters poses major hurdles in attaining adequate application performance. Heterogeneity can cause significant performance degradation in job execution, despite current optimizations on task scheduling and load balancing, because most MapReduce implementations were developed for homogeneous contexts. To make scheduling decisions, the majority of extant adaptive strategies assume a priori knowledge of particular job characteristics. However, without spending a significant cost, such information is not readily available. The suggested framework Adaptive Control Self-tuning provides a significant improvement over existing methods at moderate to high system utilizations, according to the evaluation results.

      Abstract: Wireless communication technology is rapidly progressing due to its high quality and high speed of information transfer from one location to another. It is necessary to ensure the safety of wireless sensor networks with this progress. One of the main security concerns in WSNs is eavesdropping, an intrusion that collects information from other devices across the network. Eavesdropping attacks are insidious and it is hard to realise that they happen. When connected with a network, users can feed sensitive information inadvertently, such as passwords, account numbers, browsing, email content, etc. Security improvement in wireless network communication is therefore required.

      Abstract: The novel coronavirus (nCOVID-19) epidemic, which has infected millions of people and killed a large number of people throughout the world, was immediately declared a global emergency. This disease is caused by the highly infectious virus ‘Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome CoronaVirus-2 (SARS-COV-2)’, in which infection with cryptogenic organizing pneumonia can be spread even from asymptotic patients during the incubation stage. According to the expert's perspective, the virus mainly affects the human respiratory tract, causing severe bronchopneumonia with fever, dyspnea, dry cough, tiredness, and respiratory failure. For identifying nCOVID-19, the usual ‘Reverse Transcription-Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR)’ clinical confirmatory test is manual, complex, and time-consuming. One of the key reasons for the need for a faster and easier method of diagnosing infected individuals to be separated and cared for is the limited availability of domain experts and test kits in hospitals. An automatic screening method may act as a second opinion for medical practitioners to rapidly identify infected individuals who require immediate isolation. Additional clinical confirmation is necessary when there is a transitory spike in the number of infected patients. We are proposing a deep learning technique to detect the nCovid-19 using frontal Chest X-ray scans.

      Authors: G. Vani; Dr.A. Hema
      Abstract: Recent advances in the field of digital endoscopy have recognized as a primary key knowledge for medical screening of presence of diseases at its earlier stages and minimal invasive surgery. Many research works are done on automatic analyzing and detection of early esophageal adenocarcinoma which is not easy to detect at its primary stage. Because the esophageal images are naturally indeterministic and it is uncertain to detect its earliest appearance more precisely at its right stage of diagnosis. Thus, in this present research work the statistical information-based grid clustering is developed by empowering its clustering capability using Quantum mechanism. The conventional STatistical INformation Grid Clustering (STING) reduces the computation complexity of the clustering process, but outlier detection and uncertainty handling are very challenging, because it partitions the Eshophageal image in the layer by layer levels. Each layer is divided into cells and they are known as child cells. The relevant child cells alone are used to determine the statistical information about the entire image and based on the spatial information the similarity measure among two images are determined. The distance measure and the neighborhood pixel information are computing using quantum theory to overcome the uncertainty and parallel processing is done for concurrency based early esophageal adenocarcinoma prediction. The Barret’s Esophageal images are used for clustering the cancerous and noncancerous images. The simulation results proved that the proposed Quantum STatistical INformation Grid Clustering produce better result in detection of Early Esophageal Adenocarcinoma detection compared to other standard clustering models.

      Abstract: In recent years due to advancement in Science and Technology, Information systems have acquired an inevitable place in the overall operational management. Successful Supply chain management also includes the activity of maintaining the supplier buyer relationship. In the competitive global arena, Supply chain management becomes an USP for the companies in achieving a differential edge over competitors. To survive in today’s tough core competition, supply chain partners need to improve their competitive advantages by information exchange. From the previous studies, it is proved that information exchange for process integration between key suppliers and buyers in the chain can reduce operational cost and enhance the value addition process. It is thereby creating a differential advantage for the producer and increases the end value obtained by the customer. This paper attempts to explore the level of combined effect on the supply chain performance. The final results indicate that Information exchange is positively related to supply chain integration and it is a vital factor to improvise the supplier buyer relationship. Likewise, the findings on Supply chain integration show that SCI is positively related to the Supply chain performance and escalates the level of the firm to a different level.

      Abstract: Enhanced communication support to UAV networks can be achieved by integrating UAVs into existing cellular networks as aerial users. But there are many challenges and inadequacies in integrating UAVs with cellular networks. By utilizing multiple antennas at ground base stations, these inadequacies of existing cellular networks can be mitigated. With the use of massive MIMO technology, wherein cellular base stations are mounted with hundreds of antennas, the performance of UAV communication links gets significantly improved. In this article, we present performance evaluation of massive MIMO enabled UAV communication links, by initially covering UAV cellular communications along with its potential benefits and challenges. We then carry out the performance evaluation of UAV communication links by using basic multiple antenna techniques, shortcomings of using point to point MIMO and Multi user MIMO (MU-MIMO). Lastly we derive uplink and downlink channel capacity expressions for evaluating massive MIMO enabled UAV communication links along with few numerical results.

      Abstract: According to the World Health Organization, globally almost 1.24 million people die yearly on the world’s roads. In the Indian state of Tamil Nadu, there were roughly 57 thousand traffic accidents in 2019. Every year, traffic inconsistencies are a major cause of death, injury, and property damage. Vehicle over speeding was the leading cause of road accident fatalities in 2019. In World Road Statistics that year, the South Asian country ranked first out of 200 for the number of road accident deaths. With the growing growth of the population and a lack of healthcare facilities in government hospitals, private hospitals have become increasingly important. Vehicle accidents have been increasing in recent years for a variety of causes, including excessive speeding, alcoholic driving, driver distractions, red light jumping, avoiding safety equipment such as seat belts and helmets, non-adherence to lane driving, and improper overtaking. Accident patients choose a hospital according to various reasons such as high-quality treatment, reputation, experienced doctors, nearby accident places and infrastructure facilities. Though the patients are facing some important problems in multispecialty hospitals after met the road accident such as advance payments, high cost of treatments, careless of doctors and nurses and lack of cleanliness of hospitals, etc. That is the reason an attempt has been made to analyse the problems. It is found that high cost, poor quality of treatment, delay for discharge are major issues while taking treatment in the hospitals. Hence, management should avoid these issues to sustain the reputation in the future.

      Abstract: The proposed system is used to deliver an uninterrupted power supply to the motor in electric vehicle with reduced switching losses. A PV Panel is combined to the load as a secondary power source in addition to the primary Energy Storage System (ESS) which is connected together using a three port DC-DC converter. The converter boosts output from the respective sources and regulates constant supply to the load in a single stage of transmission. Phase shifted Pulse Width Modulation (PPWM) technique reduces the harmonics which in order reduces the switching losses and makes switching instant, resulting in fast dynamic response. The secondary source can also be used to charge the battery through bidirectional converter. A fuel cell connected to a converter which is interfaced with the load through a separate circuit acts as an additional backup at situations to maintain continuous power supply in case of failure in both the primary power source and the panel circuits.

      Abstract: Waste is becoming a potential contributor to environmental pollution. The perk of waste management is significantly increasing with the growing population. This would have never been an issue if we would have segregated the waste at home, in the first place. This ignorance and indifference has led us to ‘SMART WASTE SEGREGATION SYSTEM'. The smart waste segregation system is built with an array of sensors. They are inductive proximity, IR and moisture sensors which will segregate the collected wastes into dry and wet waste. In this approach, first waste is sent in the conveyor belt through inductive proximity sensor that detects and segregates metallic waste which can be sent to scrap recasting units. Then the non-metallic waste is sent through IR sensor that separates plastic waste and finally moves through moisture sensor using which wet waste can be collected which are used for making manure or biogas and remaining miscellaneous waste like medical waste can be disposed or incinerated ethically. Waste management is essential to maintain an ecological balance, and this approach can make it time conservative and efficient.

      Authors: C.A. Van Beukering; P.E. Hertzog, A.J. Swart
      Abstract: Growing climate change awareness incentivizes establishment and implementation of efficient alternative food production methodologies such as aquaponics, with potentially high yield versus reduced footprint, urban implementation and local food security and employment. Viably maintaining such systems during freezing winter climate necessitates thermal supplementation to maintain biological viability of the fish stock and bio-filter micro-organisms. The purpose of this study is to present a simplified baseline approach for determining thermal supplementation for establishing sustainability of a medium sized aquaponics system. An existing aquaponics system is examined and described through historical temperature data, system thermal interaction via mass-flow loop energy transfer and a physical layout. Applicable historical measurements for initial supplementation determination are be listed. The chosen solar supplementation source is discussed in terms of cost and energy input. Further examination of study data informs system energy interaction and system micro-biota viability. The presented method results in an inter-cold-front positive system temperature recovery slope of 0.278˚C per day and an extrapolated temperature buffer recovery in 15 days, validating the viability of the method as presented. The value of adopting this method lies in promoting aquaponics system adoption by simplifying system-viability supplementation estimation where direct grid energy unit-cost comparison allows for informed decisions. Adopting the method for the Bloemfontein area, or locations with similar climate, is thus recommended.

      Abstract: The resent research is an analytical review of international assistance provided to the Kyrgyz Republic in the course of fundamental political and economic reforms. The volume of assistance, its main directions, its effectiveness and results are investigated. The republic, as a developing country, continues to accept foreign aid, yet the results of the overall development remain an acute issue.
      The external assistance provided to the Kyrgyz Republic did not significantly increase the flow of external and internal investments, did not lead to an increase in the share of the gross product per citizen, and ultimately did not reach its goal of reducing poverty. Instead, the country is gradually plunging into the debt hole, entering into a cyclical pyramidal dependence on additional external financial resources necessary to service the current debt itself.

      Abstract: The article describes international legal positions ensuring the safety of participants in criminal proceedings. The international community has developed documents that provide states with unified and universally accepted legal provisions to regulate the statutory position of a participant in criminal proceedings. The national legislation should be brought in line with the global requirements. Generalizing the existing international legal instruments, the authors identify universal safety measures protecting participants in criminal proceedings. The protection of witnesses and victims is a guarantee of establishing the defendant’s guilt. Assistance in criminal proceedings facilitates the effective and timely collection of evidence.

      Abstract: Purpose. The article discusses the interaction of Russia and China within the framework of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, and the formation and development of legal relations in the context of goals, objectives and functions defined by the SCO Declaration. The article characterizes the regulatory aspects of the priority directions and the prospects of Sino-Russian cooperation, in particular in the sphere of security and stability in the Central Asia.
      Design/methodology/approach. The SCO constituent instruments and statistical information on the Sino-Russian relations were analyzed.
      Findings. Russia and China’s common objectives in their joint activities were defined. The differences were indicated in the approaches to the further development of the SCO in the near future. The legal instruments regulating multilateral cooperation of the SCO member states, including Russia and China as major actors, require further dynamic improvement. The Sino-Russian relations transformed the SCO into a multi-sectoral eclectic structure. Although these two countries have significantly different interests in the SCO, contradictions can be resolved through bilateral agreements.
      Originality. The study points to the problem that international treaties that formalize the cooperation of the SCO member states, including Russia and China despite their leading role, need robust improvement, and the international treaty framework should evolve multilaterally.

      Abstract: This article examines the importance of managing the costs of modern corporate structures at a strategic level, in the context of the specific crisis caused by the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic. The strategic cost management system is considered as a complex tool for improving the efficiency of the corporate structure. We made the analysis of this system from three positions: the concept of the value chain, the concept of strategic positioning, the concept of factor analysis. We introduced a new notion of “business quality” which is applicable to modern corporate structures at the strategic level. The notion is characterized by two main approaches: from the point of view of internal mechanisms of corporate governance (an objective approach based on obtaining comprehensive information) and from the point of view of external mechanisms (a subjective approach based on the attitude of external stakeholders to the value of corporate securities).

      Abstract: The study tested the ‘uncertainty-strategy-actions’ model by K.P. Coyne and S. Subramaniam, which the authors proposed earlier as a theoretical basis for analyzing the export strategy of the Russian company PJSC Gazprom in the European gas market. The conclusion was as follows: the company will act as a balancing supplier in the European market in the medium term, maintaining a stable level of exports and diversifying supplies along three routes, and in the long term, the unified Eurasian gas transmission system created within the framework of the company’s forming strategy will become an energy ‘bridge’ between the markets of Europe and Asia.

  • "Holy Russia" In English Literature: Concept Development during
           the 1870S–1910S

         This is an Open Access Article Open Access Article

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Svetlana B. Koroleva
      Abstract: The idea of Holy Russia is one of those most significant spiritual phenomena of Russian culture which are difficult to define. The issues addressed in the article are of particular relevance due to the growing scholarly interest in the identification of the concept of Holy Russia and its place in the national cultural identity. The study aims to reveal the content of the concept in the first half of the 19th century in different discourses of the Russian culture and to define the specific features of two early stages of its perception in the English literature. The methodology chosen by the author corresponds to the complexity of the research objectives: interdisciplinary in nature, it combines the method of comparative conceptology with the methods of comparative literary criticism and theoretical concepts of imagology.
      The article demonstrates that the concept of Holy Russia receives new impulses for development within the framework of Russian culture in the 19th century. That was a period of intensive search for a national idea and ideology, a unique "Russian spirit" and the national character of the Russian people — search that was oriented in the direction set by the concept of Holy Russia. Reflections on Holy Russia for the first time became an integral part of Russian historical, political and philosophical discourses; in literary texts, they not only correlated with new motives of personal responsibility, prayer aspiration and the national ideal, but also partly lost their axiological uniqueness.
      The article proves that the content of the Russian concept of Holy Russia was in stark contrast to the content of the concept of Holy Russia emerging in the British culture around the 1870s. Initial interpretation of the latter was largely determined by the nature of British-Russian political relations. In the context of Russophobic sentiments in Britain, the term "Holy Russia" was originally interpreted in English journalism and literature (Swinburne, 1884) as a smokescreen, hiding the murderous tyranny of the tsarist regime.
      The article describes the significant changes that the concept of Holy Russia was undergoing by the end of the 19th century, which was partly due to the ideological pressure of the Russian political emigration on the English intellectual elite. Thus, for example, F. Adams in his poem ‘Holy Russia’ portrays the Russian people very sympathetically, in the allegorical image of a woman tormented by a powerful snake and, at the same time, illuminated with spiritual light and belief in the possibility of liberation from terrible bonds. Each of the main versions of the Holy Russia concept, formed in the English culture by the 1910s, finds its reflection in the novel "Joan and Peter" by H.G. Wells.
      The materials analysed in the article can have practical implications for historical, literary and cultural research on the Russian culture and the Anglo-Russian cultural and literary ties.

  • Monumental Sculpture in the Semantic Structure of a Provincial Russian
           City

      Authors: Boris P. Borisov; Natalya B. Akoeva, Nikolay G. Denisov, Tatyana A. Kovelina, Aleksey V. Oposhnyansky, Karina B Sadim
      Abstract: The rapidly growing cultural globalization, while strengthening the foundations of totalitarianism in social management, reveals the effect of losing the already not very bright identity of 'an ordinary' (and sometimes also 'historically young') provincial Russian city, even if this city has a significant name in history. This process is objective, natural, and needs to be understood. Understanding its basis is a necessary condition for managing its flow.
      Urban monumental sculpture is an important area that can be explored to aid this understanding.
      The subject of research is the historical evolution of the monumental and sculptural decoration of 'the capital of the Kuban Cossacks: Ekaterinodar/Krasnodar. The purpose of the study is to understand the processes that determine the historical variability of the 'soul of the city"', i.e. the most important indicator of its identity.
      The analysis shows that the essential basis of the process is the combination of the determining aspects of the 'spirit of citizens' and the 'spirit of the city administration'. In different historical periods, the juxtaposition of opposites changed. If the relative unity of 'administrative spirit of the city' and 'elements of the aggregate of the souls of the citizens is typical for the beginning of the city history, if the Soviet historical period is typical of the severe suppression of administrative-command management of manifestations of 'soul of people, the XXI century is characterized by the eclectic parallelism of opposite worlds. One of the worlds is filled with the 'spirit of the empty official pomposity', while the other shows the 'lightheadedness eclectic incarnation of sentiment'.
      Spontaneously, in such conditions, the identity of the city and the spirit of the historical center of culture of the Kuban Cossacks can no longer be restored. The development trend of the 'soul of the city', which is involved in the active processes of economic and cultural globalization, does not contain any other way of forming a 'Cossack identity', except through the artificial creation of its simulacrum.

      Abstract: The paper gives a medico-geographical analysis of various Arctic and sub-Arctic regions of Yakutia, namely, the city of Yakutsk, the town of Nam of Namsky District and the rural town of Tiksi of Bulunsky District. A new methodological approach and methods are suggested for assessing the adaptation process of residents of Russia’s Eastern Arctic using the medico-ecological screening of the population. This procedure found the general adaptation syndrome among the residents of Yakutia’s sub-Arctic and Arctic areas. A survey was used to investigate the impacts of different environmental factors on adaptation indicators among various groups residing in some of Yakutia’s districts. Adaptation parameters were defined among indigenous and non-indigenous groups living in various Arctic areas in terms of extreme environmental conditions affecting human adaptation to changing environments.

      Authors: Illya D. Shutak; Vitaliy M. Kosovych, Mykhail Kelman, Natalia N. Radanovych
      Abstract: The purpose of this study is to determine whether a modern European state needs to adopt a law on legal acts as a document that primarily sets out the statutory rules for law-making, which is necessary in order to adapt Ukrainian legislation to the European legal standards.
      For analytical purposes, we have determined that the European legal framework encompasses special laws on legal acts as well as laws establishing the rules for law-making methods. Research has been done on doctrinal approaches to the legal method issues. In addition, we have made a brief analysis of the European Union legal framework concerning the law-making rules and studied the respective law-making legislation of Ukraine.
      It has been concluded that the adoption of a special law on legal acts is not a priority task in the field of legal regulation for modern European states, although it is highly desirable in order to develop, amid academic pluralism, approaches to understanding legal methods and the need to compile a list of law-making tools for the purposes of regulatory definition and standardisation of types, forms and rules for evaluating adopted legislation (ex-post evaluation). To make law-making activities efficient in the states that used to be part of the socialist legal system in the past, legal formalisation is required, especially in post-Soviet states, such as Ukraine.

      Abstract: CVD is the one of the main reason of death compared to other diseases globally. Nearly 17.9 million people die every year because of this disease. WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION predicts that the deaths will increases by 24.5 million in 2030. Heart diseases involve diseases of the guts and blood vessels/artery. Four out of five deaths are occurs due to heart attacks. Nearly One-third of those deaths occur under the age of 70. The most of the people died in developing countries only. India is also comes under this category. For heart disease identification by examining the symptoms we need vascular specialists, which are very finite number in developing nations. Also, the medical tests/procedures for heart diseases are that’s a bit steep; At times out of the range for patient’s family. Early recognition is important in these type of diseases with low cost forecasting. In these days ML algorithms are used for forecasting of many other applications. These algorithms can be used for forecasting of CVD. The timely prediction of the heart diseases helped in taking decisions about the patients which resulted reduction of their risks. This project proposes a prediction model to predict whether patient have a heart disease or not by using entered symptoms in webform and to give an awareness on heart disease and some useful tips on heart disease.

      Abstract: The article considers musically-acoustic thesaurus of collective and individual, a complex structure, which composition of multiple parts is effectuated by multiple channels of receiving information from the outside and ways of manipulation with it, that is turning of separate facts into systematic knowledge stored in memory. This structure consists of two groups with duplex connection. The first one is the knowledge of the world as a sonic phenomenon and of human auditory activity, as well as of the experience of absorbing the information received, principles of manipulation with it, overall – fulfills inherent inclination of individual towards usage of auditory images as a requirement for appearance of musical ones. All the sonorities are bracketed in two groups: extra-musical and musical itself. The latter group consists of musical units of acoustically-sonic environment, having utility, practical significance for a person, allowing orientation in given spacetime. At the same time, they are potentially opened to emotional experiences and aesthetic approach towards them. Acoustically-sonic environment possesses basic traits of organization, being reflected in mind by such characteristics as cyclicity, variability, combinationalism, montage structure, simultaneity, interdependency of “shape” and “background”. In a thesaurus of a collective and individual external environment is imprinted in two ways: as undifferentiated background noise and as separate units, creating relief. The memory contains them both, creating thus sonic image of the world. The knowledge, appearing thus, is stored in thesaurus in compressed type, acquiring its full and kinetic form in cases of contact with reality.

      Abstract: The number of people who suffer from various types and forms of mental disorders is growing rapidly every day. The problem definition by the statistical methods only just outlines the quantitative relations between the numbers of registered mental illness cases and the overall number of people suffering from them. However, it doesn’t answer the main questions of the public safety and of the safety of the abovementioned persons as it fails to account for the exogenous factors of the manifestation of the genetically determined and inborn mental disorders that incapacity mostly the children population. In this regard, a necessary condition for public safety is a scientific solution to the problem of the securitylogical subjectivity of the person with mental and behavioral disorders. One of the main reasons for the heavy illnesses of the central nervous system (CNS) and psychic disorders is perinatal cerebrovascular lesions and hypoxic-ischemic cerebrovascular injuries. The problem is, on the one hand, a subject of interest for the psychological, medical and social sciences, and on the other opens the dimensions of both special and social correction. Psychic disorders resulting from the perinatal cerebrovascular lesions and their psychotherapeutic correction are discussed in this article. Clinical investigation of the perinatal cerebrovascular lesions has been conducted using radio diagnostics tools, the mental and behavioural disorders were studied, and the correction methods were presented.

      Abstract: Self-affirmation acts as one of the main determinants of the formation of a person, who can be socially active, have his or her own position and views, be able to defend and prove them, know the rights, adequately evaluate opportunities and be responsible for the actions. With the help of the questionnaire "Strategies of self-affirmation of personality" (N.E. Harlamenkov, E.P. Nikitin), we found out the strategies of self-affirmation of students. This knowledge will enable us to work properly to optimize the choice of strategies for self-affirmation by young people. For a harmonious existence of the personality, a consistent approach to different time perspectives is required. For a psychologist to work with a person it is important to understand the priority of the temporal perspective, because the time perspective reflects the settings, beliefs and values associated with time. With the help of the questionnaire "The Time Perspective of Personality" by F. Zimbardo, we outlined the time perspective of the respondents with different strategies of self-affirmation, and we conducted a comparative analysis of the results obtained at different time intervals. The results of the conducted study will provide further development of the training program for the formation of the student’s ability to constructive self-affirmation.

      Abstract: Modern socio-educational student environment, which stands on communication is based on the exchange of visual images and philological units. Philology students see in communicating with foreign language communicants an opportunity to develop the spoken language of a non-native language, as well as to supplement this knowledge with cultural characteristics and new images. The perception of academically correct lexical group is relevant in combination with spoken language. The novelty of the study lies in the fact that the authors go beyond the stereotype, according to which the academic language is conventionally considered an anachronism and, in general, not an effective means to expand linguistic competence. The article proves that students are ready to learn the academic language not only ion the cultural plane, but also with the help of pedagogical methods. The study also confirms the authors' assertion that it is advisable to introduce an extended learning format into the curriculum in line with the techniques of linguistic learning. The practical value of this article lies in the fact that the study of the academic language by philology students will help them apply the acquired knowledge and skills in different social situations, which are often based on in-depth historical linguistic knowledge.

The methodological basis of the article is the position of linguistic musicology, presented by the heirs of B. Asafiev’s school in Ukraine, in which the concept of “musical vocabulary of the era” holds an honorable place. Particular attention is devoted to the features of stringed and plucked instruments, which make up the specifics and emblem of national Ukrainian art. The laws of rhetoric, especially the inventio principles, fixing the tone-sound specifics of expressive sound production were studied. The intensity of the artistic component in the creative construction of the instrumental playing and in the essence of the artist’s performing position was determined. The scientific novelty of work determined theoretical innovation for the Ukrainian musicology of the problem of rhetorical inventio in music and its application in musicological discourse.

      Authors: Iryna Ya. Zinkiv
      Abstract: Among the main signs of Ukrainian culture, its instrumental artifact, the bandura, which is the nation-building component of Ukraine, holds a significant place. The proposed paper attempts to characterize the bandura development from the diatonic instrument at the beginning of XX century, developed by the prominent Ukrainian bandura craftsmen in their creative activity – O. Korniievskyi, I. Skliar, V. Herasymenko, – to the modern “chromatic” instrument with dual-diatonic scale, wide sound range and technical characteristics. Only two from among several play methods that existed in the traditional popular-professional performance of the past epochs became firmly established before the twenties of XX century – Chernihiv method, subsequently named as Kyiv method, and Kharkiv method. Each was associated with different way of holding the instrument – perpendicular to and parallel to the performer's body. In both cases, the performers held the bandura vertically, pointing the neck upwards, which was consistent with the stable parameters of the national instrumental tradition of performing on zittern-like instruments. Starting with psalters depicted, in particular, on the fresco “Musicians” at the Cathedral of St. Sofia and other iconographic artifacts of the Middle Ages and Baroque era. The paper considers the academicization of both bandura types in terms other prominent bandura craftsmen activity, who worked during the Soviet period as part of big associations – Chernihiv and Lviv Factories of Musical Instruments. Particular emphasis is placed on the activities of craftsmen of the Chernihiv Academic Bandura – O. Korniievskyi, designer of one of the first modern hybrid instruments, and V.
