Abstract: Cloud computing has become a signi cant technology trend. With the cloud computing technology, users use a variety of devices to access programs, storage, and application- development platforms over the Internet, via services offered by cloud computing providers. Advantages of the cloud computing technology include cost savings and high availability. Access to the infrastructure in Cloud Computing incurs payments. To design and develop Cloud technologies focus on defining novel methods, policies and mechanisms for efficiently managing Cloud infrastructures. To test these newly developed methods and policies, researchers need tools that allow them to evaluate the hypothesis prior to real deployment in an environment where one can reproduce tests free of cost. Simulation- based approaches offer significant benefits. CloudSim enables seamless modeling, simulation, and experimentation of emerging Cloud computing infrastructures and application services. In the CloudSim simulator there are two problems: Lack of links between Datacenters and no possibility to create a virtual machine (VM) in more Datacenters. In this paper we propose a ring topology to allow the exchange and the sharing of information and services between different Datacenter, and we improve the method of creating VMs to allow the creation of VMs in several Datacenter, which improves fault tolerance in this type of environment.
Perception of Farmers on Extension Services in North Western Part of Nigeria: The Case of Farming Households in Kano State  [PDF]
Hassan Ibrahim, Jing Zhou, Min Li, Qichang Chen
Journal of Service Science and Management (JSSM) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/jssm.2014.72006

This study was conducted to determine the perception of farmers on extension services of ADP in Kano state of Nigeria. Multistage sampling technique was used, in which three local governments were randomly selected. Secondly, three wards (divisions under local government) from the selected local governments (Danbatta, Gaya and Madobi) were randomly selected. Thirdly, three villages (one from each ward) were selected. The total number of sample respondent was 120, i.e. 40 farming households from each village. The data collected were analyzed with SPSS using descriptive statistics, and Likert scale. The results revealed that, farmers of 35 years of age and below have the highest percentage and 105 out of 120 farmers interviewed were found to be literate. The farmers ranked radio as first extension methods, followed by farm and home visit. Finally, to satisfy their need, farmers should be involved in planning and implementation of extension service.

UNIPLAC’s Scientific Exhibition: 18 Years of History  [PDF]
Patricia Alves de Souza, Vanessa Freitas Bratti
Creative Education (CE) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2015.617193
Abstract: This study was developed at Universidade do Planalto Catarinense—UNIPLAC, an university established since 1954, located in the city of Lages State of Santa Catarina, southern Brazil. The city of Lages has approximately 160,000 inhabitants. In 1997, the Planalto Catarinense University (UNIPLAC) created the Scientific Exhibition (Mostra Científica), intended to disclose scientific works brought about by their faculty, researchers and students. The goal is to identify UNIPLAC’s scientific output from 1997 to 2012 in the Scientific Exhibition. A survey of existing reports on the exhibition was executed. 3237 scientific works have been published since the creation of the event in 1997 until 2012. Initially, the Scientific Exhibition was intended for the presentation of degree requirement works and was extended to works of research and extension developed within UNIPLAC and other institutions. There was a considerable increase in the number of works presented along the years of Scientific Exhibition, and therefore there was also a greater integration between the university and the community. The exhibition motivates students to submit their ideas, writings and findings. The young scholar shows greater motivation towards his studies. Academic exchange operates in several ways: between teachers and students of an institution and towards colleagues from other institutions. The scientific and technological advancements of a nation depend on the quality of its researchers, on the awareness of its science and the interaction between industry and science.
Abattoir as a Tool for Veterinary Extension and Communication Services: A Practical Demonstration of Its Implementation  [PDF]

Open Journal of Veterinary Medicine (OJVM) , 2019, DOI: 10.4236/ojvm.2019.91001
Abstract: Considering the widespread disease transmission among butchers/meat inspectors and a possible risk of exposure to diseases due to the attitude of some butchers and nature of meat inspector’s jobs. Ignorance and lack of awareness of such dangers has also been identified to be responsible for some of the problems encountered in most instances as well as the presence of some predisposing factors for diseases. In view of the above, this model is developed as a means of demonstrating the use of the abattoir and other registered related slaughter premises in the provision of the physical facility, where the primary role of extension personnel to develop the capacity and capability of target groups in the abattoir and livestock producing community, in order to enhance animal/zoonotic disease surveillance and control. The model if adopted and fully utilized will create awareness among target groups of dangers of disease transmission and ways of curtailing such problems, government through their agencies, professionals and private organizations should be involved in the implementation of this model in order to achieve the desired response.
As perspectivas da cultura e extens?o no curso de enfermagem da Universidade Federal da Bahia
Paiva, Miriam Santos;Novaes, Valda Lucia Rocha de;
Revista Latino-Americana de Enfermagem , 1993, DOI: 10.1590/S0104-11691993000300012
Abstract: the present article emphasizes the importance of the university to maintain the indisociability among its finality activities whereas, at the moment, this indisociability shows up in a non compensated form. it comprehends a brief retrospective analysis of the extension activities, reporting the actual projects and the extension perspective at the college of nursing, federal university of bahia, directing the attention to the fact that extension ought to be developed through a process of articulation with teaching and research, as these activities are complementaries and different, but never unequal hierarchically.

A Model of Representing Extension and Shrinking for Spatial Relations  [PDF]
Shan Zhong, Junpeng Wan
Journal of Software Engineering and Applications (JSEA) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/jsea.2011.43022
Abstract: Aiming at region connection calculus (RCC) can only roughly represent spatial topological relations, and have difficulty in representing the distance, direction and so on. Therefore, based on RCC theory, Region Extension and Shrinking Calculus are proposed, and then a formalized metrization method using region as a basic unit is introduced. Based on RESC theory, taking the advantage such as application simplicity and easy realization of gird area method. The experiment proves the spatial relations can be easily obtained by Grid-Region method, and it is an effective way to repre- sent spatial relations.
Annals of Dun?rea de Jos University. Fascicle I : Economics and Applied Informatics , 2006,
Abstract: The method of extension through analogy is, in our view, useful for comparisons between miscellaneous economical indicators belonging to the same structure, also between indicators which belongs to various economical areas like cities, regions, countries. Taking into account Romania’s admission to the European Union, this method would establish the extant temporary disparities and would impress those responsible in the political economy. As a novelty we present it inthe context of square trends.

Creative Education (CE) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2012.34064
Abstract: At present, it is urgent for us to build fully functional information security laboratory. In this paper, the function and requirements of a new information security lab are analyzed. And a construction scheme for information security laboratory is put forward. The lab not only provides services for teaching and training, but also provides security evaluation, authentication and extension services for local governments, institutions and enterprises. Our teaching and training practice shows that the scheme of such information security laboratory proposed in this paper is effective and reasonable.
