In this paper, fuzzy modeling of distance between Intuitionistic fuzzy sets (four inputs–one output and two inputs– one output) were developed to test the hypothesis that high job demands and low job control (job strain) are associated with elevated free cortisol levels early in the working day and with reduced variability across the day and to evaluate the contribution of anger expression to this pattern. The models were derived from multiple data sources including One hundred five school teachers (41 men and 64 women) classified 12 months earlier as high (N = 48) or low (N = 57) in job strain according to the demand/control model sampled saliva at 2-hour intervals from 8:00 to 8:30 hours to 22:00 to 22:30 hours on a working day. Comparison of the models show that the four input model exhibited less entropy than the two input model using distance between Intuitionistic fuzzy sets.
The present paper examines the association between the men‟s knowledge regarding the maternal health service utilization and maternal health in India using data from National Family Health Survey 2005-06. The indicator of maternal health used in the analysis is safe delivery. Binary and multinomial logistic regression are used established the said association. Males involvement coded into two ways and two categories viz father present at the time of ANC visit or not, and whether at any time during the pregnancy any health provider or health worker told them about the various sign of pregnancy complications or not. The other independent variables used in this analysis are age, children ever born, work status of the women, education of the women, religion and caste. The findings clearly suggest that male involvement and their knowledge about maternal health significantly associated with the maternal health. Those women‟s husband has knowledge regarding maternal health
Social media refers to the means of interactions among people in which they create, share, and exchange information and ideas in virtual communities and networks. The growth of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) has resulted in an enormous volume of security related information present on the web largely when it comes to social media networks. Therefore, with the changing face of cyber security, although it is difficult, it was found that detecting the potential cyber-attacks or crimes is possible and feasible with the vast improvements in ICT. Cloud computing uses ICT resources that are delivered as a service over a network which has opened a promising opportunity across the globe thus resulting a greater popularity of e-commerce. The proposed framework is developed to manage risks of social media networks using the attack tree method which is used to model the risk of the system and identify the possible attacking strategies which the adversaries may launch.
During empirical sociolinguistic research this correlational study statistically compares quantitative scores of an independent variable Proficiency in English against the quantified dependent variable Rate of occurrence of deviations from Standard Sri Lankan English (SSLE) pronunciation across the 185 users of Other Varieties of Sri Lankan Englishes. The participants diversified in their first language. 100 participants had Sinhala while the first language of 85 participants was Sri Lankan Tamil. a questionnaire cum word elicitation process compiled data. The instrument consisted of 25 lexical items which gave rise to pronunciation deviations compiled from literature on Sri Lankan English. Descriptive statistics posit that there is a negative correlation between the two variables while the percentage variance explained for the correlation between the variables was a medium 9% for the Sinhala and 24% for the Tamil bilingual participants. This study concludes that other

ASHA will be a health activist in the community who will create awareness on health and its social determinants and mobilize the community towards local health planning and increased utilization and accountability of the existing health services. This is an educational interventional and longitudinal study. Six PHCs of Atmakur CHNC namely Kottalcheruvu, Bairluty, Kothapally, Yerramattam, Gokavaram, Pamulapadu were selected for the study by using multistage random sampling technique. All 130 ASHAs from these six PHCs had participated in educational intervention given to them in three sessions with an interval of one month between the sessions by using flip charts, video shows, role plays, demonstrations on ASHA Day, first Tuesday of every month. For evaluation of knowledge level of the ASHAs, a questionnaire prepared in the local language was administered to the ASHAs before and after educational intervention .
It is debatable that the Nigerian Land Use Act of 1978 has not absolutely transferred ownership of land to the Governor of states in Nigeria.
