1. Prevalence and Socio-economic Correlation of Dermatophytes Isolated from Clinical Samples in a Tertiary Care Centre in South India Lavanya V. & S. S. Solabannavar Dermatophytes are by far the most significant fungi because of their widespread involvement of population at large and their prevalence all over the world, particularly in the tropical and subtropical countries like India. The present study was undertaken to determine the social & demographic factors including occupational correlation of various dermatophytic infections. Skin, nail and hair specimens taken from a total of one hundred and five clinically diagnosed randomly selected patients of dermatophytosis attending the outpatient department of Dermatology and Venereology, HSK Hospital and Research Centre, Bagalkot…Click Here To Read More 01-04 Download pdf

2. Teaching Computer Organization Using Field Programmable Gate Array: An Incremental Approach Mohammad Awedh and Ahmed Mueen This paper describes a novel approach to teach computer organization using an incremental approach
of working models on FPGA. It presents the design concepts and realization of MIPS-based architecture into the teaching tool. Our new approach has improved the student learning and understanding of the major concepts in computer organization. Our main goal of this study is to compare our method (model) of teaching to the one that was used prior to this study in our institute.Click Here To Read More

3. Preparation and Characterization of Polyalthia longifolia Based Alumina as a Novel Adsorbent for Removing Fluoride from Drinking Water Sanghranta S. Waghmare, Tanvir Arfin, Nilesh Manwar, Dilip H. Lataye, Nitin Labhsetwar &
Sadhana Rayalu
This research addresses i) synthesis of an alumina composite based on high capacity adsorbent using a leaf as a template and ii) the issue of handling spent regenerant resulting from regeneration of such high capacity adsorbents. A low-cost composite type adsorbent has been synthesized for removal of excess fluoride from drinking water, using Polyalthia longifolia (false Ashoka tree) leaf as a template and alum as a source of alumina. The composite adsorbent having heterogeneous phases of Al(OH)3 and Al2O3 is associated with carbon and free Al(OH)3 and alumina has been identified using XRD, SEM, FTIR and BET surface area analysis.Click Here To Read More 12-24 Download pdf

4. Fixed points on two complete D- metric spaces J. K. Verma The measures of nearness between two or more objects with respect to a specific characteristic are parameter of the nearness. In D-metric space thereby which it has been possible to determine the geometrical nearness, generalized metric D is a slight variant of two metric. Fisher 4 & 5 obtained related fixed point theorems on two complete metric spaces. Inspired by his work, in this paper we prove a related fixed point theorem on two complete D-metric spaces.Click Here To Read More 25-27 Download pdf

5. Impact of Neem Leaf on Physical and Chemical Profile of Fly Ash Incorpoted Soil Manorama Gupta, S. P. Singh & K. Kaur The fly ash is the waste material of coal based thermal power plants and is produced in a large amount in our country as well as in all over world. It has been registered that due to increase the power demand in world the percentage of fly ash also increases very fast. Hence, so many efforts have been made day by day to reutilize this waste material in various sectors. The present work is deal with the variation in the physical – chemical profile of fly ash incorporation soil with and without Neem leaf for the period of 120 days of incubation.Click Here To Read More 28-32 Download pdf

6. Binding Properties of Some Pyranopyridothiazole Derivatives in Acetonitrile Olfa Naouali, Besma Mellah, Hussain Ali Soleiman and Lassaad Baklouti The complexation properties of some pyranopyridothiazole derivatives L1-L4 towards alkali, alkaline earth, and some transition metal cations have been investigated in acetonitrile by means of UV spectrophotometry absorption and conductivity. Therefore, the stoichiometries of complexes formed are ML and their profiles of stability illustrate selectivities of L2 towards Sr2+ and Cu2+ and of L4 towards Na+.Click Here To Read More 33-37 Download pdf

7. The Nephrotoxic Potential of Stevia in Chicken Embryo Model Mahadi Jahanbakhsh, Reza Sayrafi, Parisa Sadighara Stevioside, a plentiful component of Stevia rebaudiana leaves, has become well-known for its intense sweetness is used as a non-caloric sweetener in many countries. The aim of this study was to investigate nephrotoxicity of stevia sweeteners on chicken embryo. The 10,100 and 1000PPM of stevia doses was injected into into the egg yolk on the day 4 of incubation. The experiment was terminated on the day 21 of incubation, then, the kidney sample tissues were collected. The oxidative stress parameters and kidney parameters in serum were measured and compared in the groups. It is however known that the increase of some oxidative parameters. Serum parameters show that there was an increase in the levels of creatinine.Click Here To Read More 38-41 Download pdf

8. Bioaccumulation, Translocation and Internal Partitioning of cadmium in Vigna mungo and Assessment of its Phytoremediation Potential Akhil Gupta, Aprajita Singh AnamikaTripathi and J. K. Pathak Seedlings of Vigna mungo T-9 were given Cd exposure (0 ppm, 50 ppm, 100 ppm,200 ppm, 300 ppm 500 ppm CdSO4) in pot experiments having metal amended soils. After 45 days plant parts roots, shoot, and leaves were analysed. Cd accumulation in them was measured with the help of inductively coupled plasma – Optical emission spectroscopy (ICP-OES), after digestion with HNO3 and perchloric acid.Click Here To Read More 42-47 Download pdf

9. Drug Utilization Pattern of Anti-epileptic Drugs in Idiopathic Childhood Epilepsy in a Tertiary Health Care Center Sabnam Ara Begum, Arunava Biswas, Mousumi De, Avijit Ganguly, Saugata Ghosh, Saumya Sarkar The study was conducted to know the prevalence of various types of Idiopathic Childhood Epilepsy and the utilization pattern of Antiepileptic drugs (AED) in the tertiary referral center. Method – A total of 100 Idiopathic epileptic patients of both sexes below 15yrs of age who were prescribed an AED (Antiepileptic drug) were considered for analysis. Demographic profile, type of epilepsy, AED, number of epileptic events, biochemical, EEG and ADR (Adverse drug reaction) data were collected and analyzed.Click Here To Read More 48-51 Download pdf

12. Phylogenetic Analysis of Noctuoid moths (Lepidoptera: Noctuoidea) by RAPD-PCR Technique Pawan Kumar, Manoj Kumar, Shweta Thakur, Rajneesh, V. K. Mattu & Amit Seth Noctuoidea is one of the most diverse families within the Lepidoptera. In present study we examined the phylogeny of the Noctuoidea between four species of moths and constructed Phylogenetic tree based on the data from the RAPD technique. Random amplified polymorphic DNA technique has the potential to become a powerful technique for studying genetic relationship and genetic diversity in Lepidopteron. Two primers namely OPA-9 and OPA-13 were used for RAPD analysis.Click Here To Read More 61-67 Download pdf

13. An Intensive Study of Gamma Ray Interactions with Flyash Concretes Kanwaldeep Singh and Gurmel Singh Six concrete mixtures were casted with 0%, 20%, 30%, 40%, 50% and 60% of flyash replacing the cement content and having constant water to cement ratio. The different radiation parameters were computed theoretically in the energy region of 10 keV to 100 GeV. The mechanical properties show improvement with specimen age and results of radiation parameters show no significant effect of flyash substitution on mass attenuation coefficient while there is some variation in results of some parameters.Click Here To Read More 68-72 Download pdf

14. Plants Derived Products: As an Eco-friendly Alternative of Synthetic Pesticide for Agri-pest Management: A Review Bhanu Prakash, N. K. Dubey and Kiran S. Since the beginning of agriculture, farmers have had to compete with pest to secure food, feed and various economically important raw materials. Nearly one-third of agri-crop products is destroyed by pest every year during production, processing and storage. Therefore, pest management is a key concern to secure food products and other economically important raw materials in the near future.Click Here To Read More 73-88 Download pdf
