Crafting a Snapshot Image to Promote Community Activism

Continuing the theme of applying strategic imagery to promote community activism, I recount my own experience conjuring a picture to concentrate focus on a deserving cause. Public forums often impose strict time limits on speakers. Such constraints demand that speakers resourcefully manage time, as in the case of a public hearing with an open microphone format that limits speakers to two-minute statements.

Promoting Functional Teacher Education in Nigeria:  Problems and Prospects

It is an undisputable fact that no education style can rise above the quality of its teachers. Teacher education advancement will determine the position of the country in the comity of nations. Hence, the nation’s development can only be enhanced by the quality of education given to her citizens. This paper therefore, discusses the meaning of teacher education, historical development of teacher education in Nigeria, present position of teacher education, relevance of teacher education, aims of teacher education, problems militating against teacher education in the country and various strategies taken by the government to promote the growth and development of teacher education in Nigeria examined

Evaluating the Enhancing Capacity of Multiple Carrier  Code Division Multiple Access (Mc-Cdma) Syste

In Communication system, the system capacity and performance are adversely affected and degraded by interference. Hence, power control plays a prominent role in an interference-limited system, which increases the efficiency by mitigating the adjacent and co-Channel interference in the system. In this paper, primarily power control is said to be used in maintaining the acceptable Carrier to Interference Ratio (CIR) by meeting some Quality of service (QoS) requirements Objective function that is defined as maximum channel capacity in a power constraint scenario. The signals in a radio channel undergo different propagation effects like reflection, refraction, scattering and shadowing. Hence, the distribution of users across subcarrier groups as well as their transmission powers within a given cell has a significant effect on how users and power are accordingly distributed elsewhere in the network to maximize the capacity of the system thereby enhancing its performance

Improving Wireless Sensor Network Performance Using  BigData and Clustering Approach

Well-organized big data get together in the densely distributed sensor networks is, therefore, a challenging research area. One of the most effective solutions to address this challenge is to utilize the sink node’s mobility to facilitate the data gathering. While this technique can reduce energy consumption of the sensor nodes, the use of mobile sink presents additional Challenges such as determining the sink node’s trajectory and cluster formation prior to data collection. In this paper, we propose a new mobile sink routing and data gathering method through network clustering based on modified ExpectationMaximization (EM) technique. In addition, we derive an optimal number of clusters to minimize the energy consumption. The effectiveness of our proposal is verified through numerical results.

A Real-Time VIS for Rail Flaw Detection

Rail inspection is an important task in railway maintenance. The speed and loads of trains have been increasing greatly in recent years, and these factors inevitably raise the risk of producing rail defects. Mainly the discrete surface defects impact the riding quality and safety of a railway system. However, it is a challenge to inspect such defects in a vision system because of illumination inequality and the variation of reflection property of rail surfaces. This project presents a realtime VIS for discrete surface defects of rail heads. VIS comprises the Image Acquisition Subsystem (IAS) and the image analysis subsystem. IAS acquires gray rail images for the surface of a rail head, and the latter processes rail images and detects possible defects. This paper propose the Local Normalization(LN) method to enhance the distinction between defects and background in a rail image, considering illumination inequality and the variation of reflection property of rail surfaces

Optimizing the relevancy of Predictions using Machine  Learning and NLP of Search Query

- One of the most important and promising branches of Artificial Intelligence (AI) is Machine Learning (ML),which strive to make a machine intelligent by “learning” from the data. Information Retrieval is also a popular and predominant technique having as one of its application, the ubiquitous Search Engine. Search Engine optimization (SEO) has seen remarkable advancements during the recent years. The objective of this paper is to optimize the existing predictive search mechanism by incorporating pattern based Machine Learning techniques, the association with a Semantic Database, Natural Language Processing of search query to produce more relevant predictions to the user. The main intention is to provide diversified but apt, intelligent predictions for both the diversified set of users whose domain of search queries is not constrained, as well as for the dedicated researchers whose domain will be confined, coupled with an optimal balance between the Response times, Relev

An Improved VCO Design with Negative Feedback to  Reduce Jitter at High Frequencies

This paper presents an improved design of voltage controlled oscillator (VCO) utilizing the three differential cell CMOS inverters for forming the ring oscillator. The differential cell reduces the power supply fluctuations impact on the oscillator jitter while the negative feedback from frequency to voltage converter reduces the jitter at high frequencies. Finally the proposed model is designed using CMOS 0.18um foundry technology and simulated using P-Spice software. The result shows that the proposed design improves the jitter attenuation at different offset frequencies up to 40dB

Automatic Template Extraction from Heterogeneous  Web Pages

- In this paper, we will enlist the process of extracting template from heterogeneous Web Pages. Extracting structured information from semi-structured machine readable web pages automatically plays a major role these days, so some websites are using common templates with contents to populate the data for good productivity, Where WWW is the major resource for extracting the information. The problem here is for machines, the templates in the web pages are considered to be harmful since they degrade the performance of web applications due to irrelevant terms in the Template. As a result, the performance of the entire system degrades. Template Detection technique can be used to improve the performance of search engine as well as for classification of web documents. In this paper, we present algorithms to extract templates from a very large number of web pages that are getting generated from heterogeneous templates. Using the similarity of template structures in the documen

GIS Steering Smart Future for Smart Indian Cities

A Smart City is the integration of technology into a strategic approach to sustainability. 21st Century has brought with it a new global trend of “sustainable urban development” and this concept adds new dimensions to urbanization which require a quick need to upgrade existing cities. The concept of a smart city is a relatively new one. Throughout the years, with the significant contribution from various technologies like computer science, information technology, remote sensing, advance multimedia world etc, GIS evolved from traditional geographer’s or cartographer’s tool for surveying and planning to a rapidly expanding primary technology for understanding our planet and related geospatial opportunities to foster a sustainable world. This paper describes smart city projects in India and thoroughly explores the existing and extended capability of GIS to include modeling and visualization in order that decision makers will be able to

Natural Environment of Cold Desert Region Zanskar  (Ladakh)

The study of man-environment relationship has great importance today. Human beings interact with their environment from the early stage of development to modern lives. In the process of this interaction they modify and transform environment. Environment plays determining role in the early stages of development where society essentially adapts itself to the limits laid down by it. As development proceeds onwards, the subservience to it gets progressively reduced and the process of cooperation and interaction begins. Present paper is based on analysis of secondary data published by different sources. Arc viewGIS 10 has been used to construct various kinds of maps in this paper. The natural environment of Zanskar presents a very harsh and fragile system. This region experiences heavy snowfall during winter caused by the western disturbances. Zanskar Tehsil is an underdeveloped area where existing use of natural resources is limited due to the low level of technology
