Contractual Solutions in Electronic Publishing Industry: A Comparative study of License Agreements
B. M. Meera,K.T. Anuradha
Webology , 2005,
Abstract: Information Technology (IT) revolution has brought global change and has impact on electronic publishing industry also. In the digital and networked environment, publishers are concerned about protecting their products from illegal use. Copyright has been proclaimed as an important weapon by the publishers to safeguard their products. In view of the increasing importance that is gained by contract law in electronic publishing, more and more libraries are engaged in signing License Agreements for getting access to all types of electronic information products. It has become imperative on the part of librarians to have knowledge of License agreements and their clauses. The body of the license agreements differs from publisher to publisher and is product dependent too. Since there is a difference between the license agreements of societal publishers and commercial publishers, an attempt is made here to carry out a comparative study of the clauses of the license agreements among commercial publishers at the first level and societal publishers at the second level. It is observed that the licensors’ rights are well protected compared to that of licensees’ rights.

Dissolution Properties of Silk Cocoon Shells and Degummed Fibers from African Wild Silkmoths
K.T. Addis,S.K. Raina
Pakistan Journal of Biological Sciences , 2013,
Abstract: Silk cocoon shells and degummed fibers from four African wild silkmoth species were studied and compared with the industrial standard, Bombyx mori, for their dissolution properties. Nine M aqueous Lithium bromide, Calcium chloride and Sodium thiocyanate solution systems were used. Efficiency of the solvent systems was determined by the percentage of dissolved silk cocoon shells and degummed fibers after three hours of treatment. Degummed fibers were more readily soluble than the cocoon shells. B. mori cocoon shells (51.5%) and fibers (59.3%) had higher solubility than their wild counterparts. Among the wild species, Gonometa postica cocoon shells and degummed fibers had the highest solubility (37.3 and 51.7%, respectively). Lithium bromide was the most effective dissolving agent for both the cocoon shells and fibers (41.2 and 84.5%, respectively). Argema mimosae, Anaphe panda and Epiphora bauhiniae showed lower solubility across the solution systems used. The Scanning Electron micrographs showed A. panda fibers exhibited gelling property after dissolution while E. bauhiniae and A. mimosae had cracked and broken fibers exposing the fibriliar structures. The difference in the chemical orientation and composition of the fibers might have contributed to the variability in the dissolution behaviour.

Effect of GSM Phone Radiation on Human Pulse Rate (Heartbeat Rate)
A. A. Ayeni,K.T. Braimoh,O. B. Ayeni
Journal of Emerging Trends in Computing and Information Sciences , 2011,
Abstract: Concern about human exposure to radiofrequency (RF) is not new. The conveniences and satisfaction derived in the use of GSM mobile phone is being threatened by claims of adverse effects on human health by radiation coming from this device. This radiation belongs to the type called non-ionizing radiation the health hazard of which remains debatable. Research has not been carried out on possible effect this device might have on human health and no experimental proof, based on data obtained within Nigeria, exist to substantiate any claim. Safety standards exist for radiation from cell phone but these are not reassuring. This paper investigates any possible effect of GSM mobile phone radiation on human heart rate and then come out with conclusion based on experimental proof. Over one hundred human subjects were monitored by measuring their pulse rate under three exposure criteria. In one of the radiation tests, the phone used was put in vibration mode in order to determine subjects were not just responding to vibration. It was found out pulse rate do not change significantly when subjects were exposed to phone radiation. However, the percentage decrease recorded by people of age 40 years and above, even though barely above 1% makes it advisable that people of age 40 years and above should avoid keeping mobile phones close to the heart.
A Collaboration Service Model for a Global Port Cluster
Keith K.T. Toh,Karyn Welsh,Kim Hassall
International Journal of Engineering Business Management , 2010,
Abstract: The importance of port clusters to a global city may be viewed from a number of perspectives. The development of port clusters and economies of agglomeration and their contribution to a regional economy is underpinned by information and physical infrastructure that facilitates collaboration between business entities within the cluster. The maturity of technologies providing portals, web and middleware services provides an opportunity to push the boundaries of contemporary service reference models and service catalogues to what the authors propose to be "collaboration services". Servicing port clusters, portal engineers of the future must consider collaboration services to benefit a region. Particularly, service orchestration through a "public user portal" must gain better utilisation of publically owned infrastructure, to share knowledge and collaborate among organisations through information systems.
Frequency Domain Blockiness and Blurriness Meter for Image Quality Assessment
Muhammad Tahir QADRI, Tan, K.T, Ghanbari, Muhammad
International Journal of Image Processing , 2011,
Abstract: Image and video compression introduces distortions (artefacts) to the coded image. The mostprominent artefacts added are blockiness and blurriness. Many existing quality meters arenormally distortion-specific. This paper proposes an objective quality meter for quantifying thecombined blockiness and blurriness distortions in frequency domain. The model first applies edgedetection and cancellation, then spatial masking to mimic the characteristics of the human visualsystem. Blockiness is then estimated by transforming image into frequency domain, followed byfinding the ratio of harmonics to other AC components. Blurriness is determined by comparing thehigh frequency coefficients of the reference and coded images due to the fact that blurrinessreduces the high frequency coefficients. Then, both blockiness and blurriness distortions arecombined for a single quality metric. The meter is tested on blocky and blurred images from theLIVE image database, with a correlation coefficient of 95-96%.
A monograph of the entomopathogenic genera Hypocrella, Moelleriella, and Samuelsia gen. nov. (Ascomycota, Hypocreales, Clavicipitaceae), and their aschersonia-like anamorphs in the Neotropics

Studies in Mycology , 2008,
Abstract: The present taxonomic revision deals with Neotropical species of three entomopathogenic genera that were once included in Hypocrella s. l.: Hypocrella s. str. (anamorph Aschersonia), Moelleriella (anamorph aschersonia-like), and Samuelsia gen. nov (anamorph aschersonia-like). Species of Hypocrella, Moelleriella, and Samuelsia are pathogens of scale insects (Coccidae and Lecaniidae, Homoptera) and whiteflies (Aleyrodidae, Homoptera) and are common in tropical regions. Phylogenetic analyses of DNA sequences from nuclear ribosomal large subunit (28S), translation elongation factor 1-α (TEF 1-α), and RNA polymerase II subunit 1 (RPB1) and analyses of multiple morphological characters demonstrate that the three segregated genera can be distinguished by the disarticulation of the ascospores and shape and size of conidia. Moelleriella has filiform multi-septate ascospores that disarticulate at the septa within the ascus and aschersonia-like anamorphs with fusoid conidia. Hypocrella s. str. has filiform to long-fusiform ascospores that do not disarticulate and Aschersonia s. str. anamorphs with fusoid conidia. The new genus proposed here, Samuelsia, has filiform to long-fusiform ascospores that do not disarticulate and aschersonia-like anamorphs with small allantoid conidia. In addition, the present study presents and discusses the evolution of species, morphology, and ecology in Hypocrella, Moelleriella, and Samuelsia based on multigene phylogenetic analyses.

American Journal of Food Technology , 2007,
Abstract: A study on the preparation and assessment of physico-chemical, microbiological and organoleptic properties of pork nuggets was carried out using liquid whey as a replacement for added water at three different levels viz., 20, 30 and 40%. Based on the physico-chemical and organoleptic evaluation 20% liquid whey as a water replacer was selected and shelf life studies was carried out. A significant (p<0.01) difference was evident in terms of pH, TBARS value, tyrosine value and organoleptic evaluation during storage period. Also total viable count, staphylococcal count and yeast and mould count revealed a highly significant (p<0.01) difference during storage period. Further, the pork nuggets were well acceptable upto 14 days of storage at refrigerated temperature (4±1°C) by the panelists. By incorporating liquid whey in the comminuted meat products the most desirable quality pork nuggets can be developed with additional advantage of fortification, excluding the drying expenses to produce whey protein concentrates and elimination of environmental pollution due to draining of surplus liquid whey.
