Abstract: the risk assessment is made up of risk analyses of species extinction in a given time, following the international union for conservation of nature and natural resources (iucn) criteria. in brazil, the data necessary for risk assessments have poor quality, so we proposed the articulation of previous processes to improve data quality. the main objective of this work was to reassess the extinction risk of brazilian species of combretaceae previously considered as threatened, updating conservation data available for these taxa. our results showed that the processes of taxonomic proceedings; data gathering; data analysis; georeferencing and communication improved the assessments consistency, specially due to systematization of the whole process. of the 11 selected species for reassessment, five were threatened in the categories vu, en, cr e cr* and six under significant threat of extinction. however the deficiency of herbaria data, the lack of digitalization of the majority of country collections and the limited access to available literature represent the main obstacles for extinction risk assessments of the brazilian flora.
“Marketing de Guerra Santa”: da oferta e atendimento de demandas religiosas à conquista de fiéis-consumidores (Holy War’s Marketing: supply and meeting of religious demands to the conquest of the faithful-consumers).DOI:10.5752/P.2175-5841.2012v10n25p201

Abstract: O artigo apresenta apontamentos sobre “marketing de guerra santa”, o planejamento estratégico de gerenciamento de mercado religioso aplicado por algumas das igrejas crist s da contemporaneidade. Vale-se de reflex es a partir de observa o participante e de consulta a bibliografia especializada. Apontam-se algumas das formas com as quais essas igrejas se midiatizam e se inserem num contexto de espetaculariza o e mercadoriza o próprios da sociedade do tempo presente e imediato. O mercado religioso no qual se inserem as agências que praticam este tipo de marketing passa por contextos de adequa o ao capital simbólico e ao arcabou o cultural dos fiéis, sendo possível identificar o investimento ideológico e econ mico na fabrica o e veicula o de suas estratégias, discursos e mercadorias. O objetivo é o de perceber algumas das maneiras com as quais firmas religiosas (tomando como maior exemplo as igrejas neopentecostais) veiculam as mercadorias que produzem ou se apropriam, e os discursos que reverberam, relacionando-os a uma cultura de massa e a uma sociedade espetacular; fomentando a discuss o sobre como tais igrejas e outros segmentos religiosos aplicam o marketing de guerra santa para melhor posicionarem sua marca no mercado e conquistarem mais fiéis. Palavras-chave: Marketing de guerra santa. Neopentecostalismo. Mídia. Mercado. Espetáculo da fé. Abstract This article presents some notes on Jesus′ marketing, strategic planning of management of religious market applied by some of contemporary Christian churches. For this purpose, the reflections from participant observation and literature on the subject are validated. Some of the ways these churches mediate themselves and are part of a context of spectacle and commoditization are also pointed out. The religious market has adequate to the symbolic capital and to the cultural framework of the participants of the churches. Because of that it is possible to identify the ideological and economic investment in the manufacturing and delivery of their strategies, discourses and products. This article aims to highlight some of the ways in which neo-Pentecostal churches convey the goods they produce and the speeches that reflect them, relating them to a mass culture and a society of the spectacle. Finally, the article wants to encourage the debate on the ways these churches apply the marketing of Jesus in order to co-opt their members and flatten their units Keywords: Holy War’s marketing.

A apropria o da guerra e da conquista por territórios como alegorias discursivas para promover esta agência religiosa, associada à doutrina o de fiéis, é o assunto central deste artigo, escrito a partir de observa o participante, participa o observante, notas de caderno de campo e análise de sites desta agência evangélica.
Total Electron Content and Anomalous Appearance of GPS Satellites as Pointers to Epicentre Identification of Major Japan Earthquake of 2011  [PDF]
Minakshi Devi, Ananda Kumar Barbara
Positioning (POS) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/pos.2012.31002
Abstract: The paper presents an analysis of variations in Total Electron Content (TEC) observed through Global Positioning System (GPS) at Guwahati (26?10'N, 91?45'E), in relation to the Japan Earthquakes (EQs) of March 9 and 11, 2011. For this purpose, the azimuthal positions and trajectories of abnormally increased number of satellites at the epicentre location appearing into the Field Of View (FOV) of GPS antenna at Guwahati and consequent pseudo enhancement in TEC are taken as inputs. The paper discusses how the analysis results could provide warning alarms of two earthquakes possibly one on March 8 or 9 and the other on March 11 or 12, 2011 with epicenter positions around 135?E to 145?E and 35?N to 40?N, that coincides with location of Japan Earthquakes. A projected forecast on EQ magnitude of M > 8.5 is also made. The explanations to the observed modifications in TEC features and abnormal increase in number of satellites are purported to be the result of coupling between lithosphere and troposphere forced in by pre-earthquake processes that had spread the zone of activities to as far as Guwahati.
A Semi-automatic method for segmentation and 3D modeling of glioma tumors from brain MRI  [PDF]
S. Ananda Resmi, Tessamma Thomas
Journal of Biomedical Science and Engineering (JBiSE) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/jbise.2012.57048
Abstract: This work presents an efficient method for volume rendering of glioma tumors from segmented 2D MRI Datasets with user interactive control, by replacing manual segmentation required in the state of art methods. The most common primary brain tumors are gliomas, evolving from the cerebral supportive cells. For clinical follow-up, the evaluation of the preoperative tumor volume is essential. Tumor portions were automatically segmented from 2D MR images using morphological filtering techniques. These segmented tumor slices were propagated and modeled with the software package. The 3D modeled tumor consists of gray level values of the original image with exact tumor boundary. Axial slices of FLAIR and T2 weighted images were used for extracting tumors. Volumetric assessment of tumor volume with manual segmentation of its outlines is a time-consuming process and is prone to error. These defects are overcome in this method. Authors verified the performance of our method on several sets of MRI scans. The 3D modeling was also done using segmented 2D slices with the help of medical software package called 3D DOCTOR for verification purposes. The results were validated with the ground truth models by the Radiologist.

Sri Lanka Journal of Bio-Medical Informatics , 2013, DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.4038/sljbmi.v3i1.2467
Abstract: Sequencing the human genome early in this decade marked one of the greatest achievements in the advancement in to science. Soon it opened up a great opportunity to the scientific community worldwide with a massive amount of biological data to be explored.Segmental duplication is one of the structural variations found in the genome sequence. It counts for about 5% of genome and with relatively long segments of sequence of more than 1KB in length and more than 90% of sequence identity. Segmental duplications are distributed within the chromosome and throughout the genome and mostly denced in the subtelometric and pericentrometric regions. Segmental duplications play major rule in the evolutionary history and its association with genetic disorders.This review intends to explore in to the publications on previous studies and to tools and methodology they followed to achieve of their objective of identifying segmental duplications. Finding the similar sequences was done by local sequence alignment algorithms, most frequently with Blast program followed by global alignment algorithms. Further some other tools such as Blat, DupMasker and MUMmer also were being used.

NETLab: An Online Laboratory Management System
Ananda Maiti
International Journal of Online Engineering (iJOE) , 2010, DOI: 10.3991/ijoe.v6i2.1292
Abstract: Online hardware-based educational laboratories are increasingly being deployed in traditional on-campus as well as Web-based distance-learning courses around the world. An online laboratory generally will consist of several hardware-based remote experiments. However, one particular experiment can be performed at a time by an individual student or a group of students which require a careful scheduling of the experiments. For the proper implementation of an online laboratory an efficient laboratory management system (LMS) is thus essential. Also for an online laboratory, the students need to fully understand the experimental system setup and feel comfortable as in an actual laboratory environment which, however, can be effectively done by adding suitable videos and animations etc. Besides, the students should be able to run the remote experiments, extract, save and analyze the data and submit laboratory reports online. The front end of the laboratory management system should be made browser-based so that one can use the laboratory facility from anywhere. Also, for the teachers, the laboratory management system should include an online evaluation for the quiz/viva-voce, checking experimental data, grading of submitted laboratory reports and feedback for the students. In this paper, we describe the design and prototype implementation of an online laboratory management system (for use with shared hardware-based remote laboratory resources) which may be employed for running internet-based online laboratory courses for geographically dispersed Institutions.

Ananda Maiti
International Journal of Online Engineering (iJOE) , 2010, DOI: 10.3991/ijoe.v6s1.1362
Abstract: Online laboratories are increasingly being deployed in traditional on-campus as well as Web-based distance-learning courses (distance education) around the world. An online laboratory generally will consist of several experiments (a module). Evaluation of student’s performance and grading in laboratory courses involves quiz/viva-voce examinations, checking of experimental data and the submitted laboratory report. The students submit online laboratory report containing experimental data, interpretation, and extracted parameters. The submitted values are automatically compared and graded, with the grading criteria decided by the instructor along with the option of awarding credit for the particular experiment session. In this paper, we describe in detail a proposal on the design and prototype implementation of automatic student performance evaluation and grading system in NetLAB laboratory management system (LMS) currently in use for undergraduate and graduate online laboratories at IIT Kharagpur.

Ananda Maiti
International Journal of Online Engineering (iJOE) , 2010, DOI: 10.3991/ijoe.v6i4.1361
Abstract: Online remotely-controlled educational laboratories are increasingly being deployed in many universities around the world. As hardware-based remote experiment can only be used by one person or a group of persons at a time, for proper utilization of the resources, an efficient time scheduling scheme is essential. In this work, we discuss some of the possible methods for scheduling of online experiments which may be integrated in online laboratory management systems for optimized resource utilization.
