Abstract: The Indian economy mostly depends on agriculture. But the farmers in leading state like Maharashtra are committing suicides because of environmental parameters which strongly affect the crops. This forced us to think in the direction of farming and we mood to the topic mentioned below inspired by Eden project in UK and BIOS-3 project in Russia.Greenhouse provided up to present era is not completely automatic and there are many errors and limitations in its working and are unaffordable, large, difficult to maintain and less accepted by the technologically unskilled workers. So we are trying to provide completely automised CES (Closed Ecological System) using runtime TCP-IP protocol to monitor and control the parameters which governs the plant growth. The architecture of a green house monitoring system comprises of a set of sensor nodes and a control unit that communicate with each sensor node and collects local information to make necessary decisions about the physical environment. The user is updated with the run time information of his field.
Tourism and Environment – Towards a European Tourism Policy
Carmen Valentina RADULESCU
Journal of Knowledge Management, Economics and Information Technology , 2011,
Abstract: Environment and tourism interact in very close terms, the relation being strong and in many cases straightforward. The synergic interaction came into reality in several forms of alternative tourism with a very dynamic evolution in the last decades. Ecotourism, as the outmost of environment friendly tourism, attracts more and more consumers and determines communities or entrepreneurs to create a prolific economic framework. The paper explores at what extent EU policies are prepared to harness the benefits of this interaction. It resulted that tourism-environment combination is not only a sector policy target, but also an important development levy for rural areas and an effective protection means for nature conservation.
Revista chilena de literatura , 2011, DOI: 10.4067/S0718-22952011000200006
Abstract: when reading la espada encendida, attention focuses on the grandeur of the inner world described in the fable. the physical territory is none other than the vast chilean patagonia, which is related to the biblical garden of adam and eve. instead of concentrating on the physical space, emphasis is given to the poetic sense that neruda attempted to give to this region. in doing so, we could better explain why the poet chose this remote and wild area, perhaps as a starting point to formulate a new world development that deviates from the christian paradigm of the world's foundation.
Weak gardens of Eden for 1-dimensional tessellation automata
Michael D. Taylor
International Journal of Mathematics and Mathematical Sciences , 1985, DOI: 10.1155/s0161171285000631
Abstract: If T is the parallel map associated with a 1-dimensional tessellation automaton, then we say a configuration f is a weak Garden of Eden for T if f has no pre-image under T other than a shift of itself. Let WG(T)= the set of weak Gardens of Eden for T and G(T)= the set of Gardens of Eden (i.e., the set of configurations not in the range of T). Typically members of WG(T) ¢ ’G(T) satisfy an equation of the form Tf=Smf where Sm is the shift defined by (Smf)(j)=f(j+m). Subject to a mild restriction on m, the equation Tf=Smf always has a solution f, and all such solutions are periodic. We present a few other properties of weak Gardens of Eden and a characterization of WG(T) for a class of parallel maps we call (0,1)-characteristic transformations in the case where there are at least three cell states.
Software Development Project Risk Management: A New Conceptual Framework  [PDF]
Lazaros Sarigiannidis, Prodromos D. Chatzoglou
Journal of Software Engineering and Applications (JSEA) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/jsea.2011.45032
Abstract: The frequently observed positive impact of adopting risk management strategies on projects’ overall outcome has led many software development organizations to appreciate its significant role in the pursuit of cost reduction, schedule overruns decrease and, generally, improved performance. In line with this issue, this study investigates a wide range of relevant literature, proposes a new conceptual framework for managing risk in software development projects, introduces new conceptual factors, brings out their interrelation, and suggests new prospects and managerial implications for both practitioners and academics. The conceptual framework has two basic axes. Firstly, the determination of the impact of constructs such as Project Characteristics, Project Risk Management Team, Risk Identification Approaches, and Project Quality on the level of Project Risk. The majority of the items used to measure these constructs are proposed for the first time in the literature. Additionally, the assessment of the impact of Project Risk (and all of the dimensions that compose it), simultaneously with the estimation of the impact of the Residual Performance Risk on the final subjective and objective Project Performance could provide project managers with a better picture of the effectiveness and adequacy of their risk management practices.
Real World Project Management: Do As I Say, Not As They Teach  [PDF]
Joseph Kasten
American Journal of Industrial and Business Management (AJIBM) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ajibm.2014.42017

Anecdotal evidence suggests that there is a stark contrast between the project management tools and techniques taught in schools and those actually used in industrial settings. This exploratory study provides evidence of those differences in the form of qualitative data collected from project managers in the information technology areas of major firms from the banking, cosmetics, and electronics manufacturing industries. Evidence suggests that there is a significant variation in which the formal project management processes taught in traditional project management curricula are used, if any. The study explores the reasons behind these differences and suggests possible approaches to ease the strain for new hires and current employees.

Sustainability in Project Management Competencies: Analyzing the Competence Gap of Project Managers  [PDF]
A. J. Gilbert Silvius, Ron P. J. Schipper
Journal of Human Resource and Sustainability Studies (JHRSS) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/jhrss.2014.22005
Abstract: Sustainability is one of the most important challenges of our time. How can we develop prosperity, without compromising the life of future generations? Companies are integrating ideas of sustainability in their marketing, corporate communication, annual reports and in their actions. More recently, the concept of sustainability has also been linked to project management. Projects are “instruments of change” within organizations, which play an important role in the realization of sustainable business processes and practices. Project managers are therefore important “change agents” in organizations that have a strong influence on the sustainability of organizations. However, the standards of project management fail to address the role project managers’ play in realizing sustainable development and project managers are lacking the competences to consider the sustainability aspects of their projects. For the implementation of sustainability in organizations, it is crucial that this competence gap is closed by the standards of project management competencies. This paper reports a literature-based analysis of the coverage of the competencies required for considering sustainability aspects, in the standards of project management competencies. The study aims to specify the competence gap of project managers with regards to sustainability, and to provide guidance on how to close this gap. The paper therefore makes specific suggestions on how the standards of project management competencies should develop in order to prepare project managers for their pivotal role in realizing sustainability of organizations.
Ontologies for Software Project Management: A Review  [PDF]
Panos Fitsilis, Vassilis Gerogiannis, Leonidas Anthopoulos
Journal of Software Engineering and Applications (JSEA) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/jsea.2014.713097
Abstract: Software Project Management is a knowledge intensive process that can benefit substantially from ontology development and ontology engineering. Ontology development could facilitate or improve substantially the software development process through the improvement of knowledge management, the increase of software and artefacts reusability, and the establishment of internal consistency within project management processes of various phases of software life cycle. A large number of ontologies have been developed attempting to address various software engineering aspects, such as requirements engineering, components reuse, domain modelling, etc. In this paper, we present a systematic literature review focusing on software project management ontologies. The literature review, among other, has identified lack of standardization in terminology and concepts, lack of systematic domain modelling and use of ontologies mainly in prototype ontology systems that address rather limited aspects of software project management processes.
Software Project’s Complexity Measurement: A Case Study  [PDF]
Panos Fitsilis, Vyron Damasiotis
Journal of Software Engineering and Applications (JSEA) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/jsea.2015.810052
Abstract: Project management is a well understood management method, widely adopted today, in order to give predictable results to complex problems. However, quite often projects fail to satisfy their initial objectives. This is why studying the factors that affect the complexity of projects is quite important. In this paper, we will present the complexity factors that are related to project time, cost and quality management and then we will apply them to a number of selected projects, in order to compare the acquired results. The projects have been chosen in a way that results can be easily compared.
Gene-Eden-VIR Is Antiviral: Results of a Post Marketing Clinical Study  [PDF]
Hanan Polansky, Edan Itzkovitz
Pharmacology & Pharmacy (PP) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/pp.2013.46A001
Abstract: Introduction: This paper reports the results of a post marketing clinical study that tested the antiviral properties of Gene-Eden-VIRTM. Specifically, the clinical study tested the effect of Gene-Eden-VIR on the severity, duration, and frequency of symptoms reported by individuals infected with various viruses. The viruses included the Human Papillomavirus (HPV), Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV), Epstein Barr Virus (EBV), Human Cytomegalovirus (HCMV) and Hepatitis C Virus (HCV). The symptoms included abnormal Pap smear, low and high grade cervical dysplasia, warts, blisters, cold sores, hives, skin tabs, panic attacks, depression, kidney problems, sleeping problems, liver problems, fever, fatigue, sore throat, swollen lymph nodes, diarrhea, and weight loss. Treatment: A capsule of Gene-Eden-VIR includes five natural ingredients: 100 mg of quercetin, 150 mg of green tea extract, 50 mg of a cinnamon extract, 25 mg of a licorice extract, and 100 mcg of selenium. The dosage was 1, 2, 3, or 4 capsules per day. The duration of treatment was 2 to 54 weeks. Population: The study population consisted of 60 infected individuals, ages 20 to 66. Results: The participants reported no side effects after taking Gene-Eden-VIR. Seventy three percent of the individuals treated with Gene-Eden-VIR reported a decrease in their symptoms. Specifically, they reported a decrease in the severity (p = 0.006, n = 45), duration (p = 0.009, n = 34), and frequency of their symptoms (p < 0.001, n = 31). Following treatment, the participants also reported an increase in their physical abilities (p < 0.001, n = 47), energy levels (p < 0.001, n = 54), mental abilities (p < 0.001, n = 44), and general health (p < 0.001, n = 46). The results showed that Gene-Eden-VIR has a duration effect (p = 0.044, n = 32), that is, those treated for a longer time reported a larger decrease in their symptoms. The results showed no interviewer bias, no selection bias, and a surprising response shift. The
