A message of Globalization: An Analysis of Contemporary South Asian English novels

South Asian region is facing the challenges of political instabilities, social unrest, insecurities due to whatever is happening in political scene since last few decades. Present study focuses on the trends of globalization in South Asian English novels with reference to Indian, Pakistani and Afghani novels. South Asia is particularly the most targeted region due to its geopolitical and strategic standing in global scenario. Moreover stereotypical notions such as nationalism, fundamentalisms have compartmentalized people of this region in suffocated cabins of cast, creed, religion, nation and culture. In such a critical time a piece of literature can no longer remain a mere piece of story that serve to entertain, rather it is morally bound to fill the gaps in order to break boundaries that lead to destruction.

Distribution Pattern and Injurious Status of Raoiella indica (Hirst) (Acari: Tenuipalpidae) on Areca

- Areca palm (Areca catechu L.) of the family Arecaceae is an important commercial crop cultivated in the tropics like the Pacific, Asia and east Africa. Many insect and non insect pests induce serious damage to areca palms in different parts of the world. The Red Palm Mite, Raoiella indica heavily infests palms of nursery stage and young palms and induces damage by sucking sap from the frond leaves of young palms during hot dry weather. This polyphagous species of false spider mite rapidly spreads through the Neotropical region where the mite damages economically and ecologically important plants. The present study is focussed on incidence, distribution pattern and injurious status of R.indica on areca palms. Field sampling was conducted fortnightly for the period of March, 2013 to September, 2013 on areca palms cultivated in two districts viz. Malappuram and Wayanadu of North Kerala, South India. Results of the study revealed significantly high population densities of the mite

Using Priority Curve Algorithm in Sports Video Summarization

Video summarization is the process to represent the content of video in effective manner.It is based on two types , static video summary and dynamic video skimming . Static video summary is the process that selects a set of salient images (called key frames) extracted or synthesized from the original video to represent the video contents. Dynamic video skimming is method to make the original video as several short video clips it can be done by using two -ways. It’s objective is to extract the main events (highlights of the match) from cricket video and make a short summary of the match so that it can take a small memory space as well as for fast content browsing transmission, and also retrieval.

Alkaline Polygalacturonases from Thermotolerant Pectinolytic Bacteria from Diverse Sources

Diverse pectin rich sources like food dumps, food waste waters, spoiled fruits, vegetables and alkaline soils were screened for alkaline bacterial pectinolytic isolates by enrichment culturing and ruthenium red plate assay. Six different bacterial isolates with higher zones of pectin hydrolysis from the source food waste waters were selected and tested for polygalacturonase production at room temperature and at neutral pH. Two isolates as Bacillus sp 2 and Bacillus sp 3 with higher polygalacturonase activity were studied for their response to alkaline, thermophilic production. Polygalacturonase production was highest for Bacillus sp 3 at an alkaline pH of 10.5, a thermophilic temperature of 60°C, an agitation speed of 200 rpm and an inoculum size of 2%. It showed an enzyme production of 890 U/ml. Selected Bacillus sp 3 was both alkaline and thermophilic and had a short fermentation cycle with good polygalacturonase production. Alkaline polygalacturonase could have ample application

Optimization of Mono Leaf Spring by Parabolic Variation of Thickness along the Length

While considering the optimization in the geometry of the leaf spring, it can be said that the design of leaf spring is quiet thickness sensitive due to its relative dimensions & the loading direction. Hence stress analysis of a mono leaf spring is done by F.E.M. before and after changing the variation of its thickness along the length. The variation of thickness considered initially is linear. After careful study it was judged that if the thickness is varied parabolically along the length of the leaf spring, better results can be obtained. Hence the values of stress at different points along the length (average values at various cross sections) for both geometries are compared graphically. In short the stress variation along the length for both geometries is plotted on graph and comparison is visualized by overlapping of graphs. An Improvement in the distribution of stress along the length improves the utilization of material & thus mass of the leaf spring can be reduced.

Compliance with Occupational Safety and Health Regulations in Nigeria’s Public Regulatory Entity: A

The amelioration of the deplorable state of occupational safety and health (OSH) in Nigeria should flow from upstream to downstream. This short communication reports on some preliminary results of an ongoing research project in which workplace observations and interviews were conducted on 10 staff out of 48 staff of the Federal Ministry of Labour and Productivity Inspectorate Division in Nigeria, the custodian of OSH. Results show that they fail to comply with some OSH regulations that they should enforce, thus establishing the upstream decay of enforcement and compliance with OSH regulations in Nigeria

Advanced Car Security System Using GSM

This system proposes the design and construction of an advanced car security system using GSM. It uses the GSM mobile communication networks to transmit alarm signal and control instruction. The control and communication between the user and the proposed system are achieved through a short message services (SMS) protocol available in the mobile phone. If the car door is illegally opened or the car is vibrated, an alarm will be activated and it send SMS message to the owner’s mobile phone immediately and automatically. The user could easily protect and control their car anywhere at any time. The proposed system consists both hardware and software parts. The hardware components include vibration sensors, a PIC microcontroller, a GSM modem, LCD and buzzer. The software part includes a program controller interface. PIC MikroC programming language is used for this control system. The control system is based on the PIC16F877A microcontroller and AT COMMAND.

Clothes for Kids and Other Important Items

If you are a new parent you might be overwhelmed at first. Having a new child is something that can take up most, if not all of your free time. When you have a child you want to find all of the best possible methods to make sure your kid is taken care of, while still saving time. Up until recently many people spent hours shopping at department stores and baby specialty stores trying to find clothes for kids as well are young children’s toys. There are many places to choose from, so it seems like a hard choice in the heat of the moment. Luckily the internet has changed all of that in just a short amount of time

Genomic DNA Isolation Protocol for Aloe Barbadensis Miller: Using Leaf Gel for Genetic Characterizat

Optimization of DNA isolation protocol for genetic characterization of any medicinal plant is the necessary and primary step. Plant leaves of medicinal plants are rich in secondary metabolites, polysaccharides and polyphenols that are problematic during isolation of genomic DNA. Besides, succulent plants freezed under liquid nitrogen turn to stonelike tissues that are difficult to grind. Flowers were not considered as a source of genomic DNA as the case of young leaves, this might be due to the seasonal nature and short half-life feature. Several protocols described for plant DNA isolation from Aloe barbadensis Miller using leaf, found difficult and tedious. This plant contains exceptionally high amount of secondary metabolites that interfere with DNA isolation. To address this problem, young leaf gel was used for DNA isolation that gave good quality DNA suitable for molecular biological applications. Cell lyses was carried out in extraction buffer supplemented with cetyltrimethylammon
