Distribution of Fish in the Upper Citarum River: an Adaptive Response to Physico-Chemical Properties
HAYATI Journal of Biosciences , 2012,
Abstract: Distribution of fish in river is controlled by physico-chemical properties of the water which is affected by land-use complexity and intensity of human intervention. A study on fish distribution was carried out in the upper Citarum River to map the effects of physio-chemical properties on habitat use. A survey was conducted to collect fish and to measure the water quality both on dry and rainy season. The result showed that distribution of the fish, in general, represented their adaptive response to physico-chemical properties. The river environment could be grouped into two categories: (i) clean and relatively unpolluted sites, which associated with high DO and water current, and (ii) polluted sites characterized by low DO, high COD, BOD, water temperature, NO3, PO4, H2S, NH3, and surfactant. Fish inhabiting the first sites were Xiphophorus helleri, Punctius binotatus, Xiphophorus maculatus, and Oreochromis mossambicus. Meanwhile, the latter sites were inhabited by Liposarcus pardalis, Trichogaster trichopterus, and Poecilia reticulata. Knowledge about fish distribution in association with the pysico-chemical properties of water is crucial especially for the river management.

Abstract: The purpose of this study is to examine, test, and evaluate the influence of the knowledge management and the role of human resources (HR) as a strategic partner in the strategic planning and organizational performance. The study conducted in government Hospital and the private sector in the region of Bali Province, with the respondent is the head of the hospital in upper and middle levels. At each hospital is given three respondents representing organizations and the unit of analysis is the organization. The data collected directly from respondents using research instruments. Techniques of analysis used partial least square (PLS). The result prove the knowledge management and the role of HR as a strategic partner to improve the accuracy of strategic planning, and strategic planning can improve organizational performance. Knowledge management is also shown to increase the role of HR as strategic partner. Knowledge management does not directly effect the performance of organization, but it proved that the strategic planning mediate the influence of knowledge management on organizational performance. This suggest that knowledge management is not a direct determinant of organizational performance, but its existence becomes an important input of the strategic planning process in an effort to improve organizational performance. The role of HR as a strategic partner also not directly affect the performance of organization, and strategic planning proved to mediate the role of perfect pair strategic HR relationship with organizational performance. This illustrates that the involvement of HR executive as a strategic partner is not direct determinant of organizational performance, but the strategic role of a source of organizational capabilities to conduct strategic planning, in an effort to improve organizational performance. Based on these results, it means that strategic planning is based on the knowledge management and HR role as a strategic partner can be a strategic capabilities, are valuable, rare, inimitable and non substitutable. These capabilities can become the core competencies of the organizations to improve or enhance the performance, which is a source of competitive advantage of the organization in a changing business environment rapidly.

International Journal of Engineering Trends and Technology , 2013,
Abstract: Viterbi algorithm is employed in wireless communication to decode the convolutional codes; those codes are used in every robust digital communication systems. Such decoders are complex & dissipiate large amount of power. Thus the paper presents the design of an Adaptive Viterbi Decoder (AVD) that uses survivor path with parameters for wireless communication in an attempt to reduce the power and cost and at the same time increase in speed. Most of the researches work to reduce power consumption, or work with high frequency for using the decoder in the modern applications such as 3 GPP, DVB, and wireless communications. Field Programmable Gate Array technology (FPGA) is considered a highly configurable option for implementing many sophisticated signal Processsing tasks. The proposed decoder design is implemented on Xilinx Spartan 3 , XC3S200 FPGA chip using VHDL code and Xilinx ISE 9.1 used for synthesis.
Eesti-Vene piirileping Euroopa Liidu ja Venemaa suhete kontekstis

Abstract: [Estonian-Russian Border Agreement in the Context of European Union-Russian Relations] The article tries to determine the role of the European Union (EU) in solving the dispute over the border agreement that has arisen between Estonia and Russia. The two countries signed the border agreement in May 2005. Shortly afterwards the Estonian Parliament ratified the agreement together with an explanatory clause pointing out the fact that the present Estonian-Russian border was established by the Soviet authorities after the Second World War by cutting off five per cent of Estonia’s 1920–1940 territory. The Estonian Parliament’s decision was regarded a violation of the already signed international agreement by Russia who consequently denounced its signature and froze the ratification process. Thus, the Estonian-Russian border agreement has remained unconcluded. The EU has maintained a rather low profile in this conflict by avoiding high level statements. All EU Presidencies since 2005 have considered the border dispute to be an issue of Estonian-Russian bilateral relations. In fact, neither Estonia nor Russia has managed to use the EU as a tool of political pressure. In 2007, Latvia and Russia signed a border agreement as well. This was followed by the ratification of the agreement in the Latvian Parliament. In case of Estonia and Russia there is a stalemate which apparently remains unsolved for the forthcoming years. Currently no clear exit strategies from the situation have been proposed.
Estonia and the "Eastern" ENP: Cherry-picking in the Conceptual Chaos
Vahur Made
Acta Societatis Martensis , 2008,
Abstract: The article examines Estonia's positioning within the European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP). ENP as such is a rather new field of common policy. It was launched only in 2003. Still it has already given reason for vivid political and academic debates within the EU. ENP has faced strong criticism as its effectiveness in building the bilateral relations between the European Union and its neighbours is constantly being questioned. The article concentrates mostly on the "eastern" ENP -- Ukraine, Moldova and Southern Caucasus -- noting that these countries also expect ENP to develop into a tool helping to facilitate their accession to the EU membership. Still, the article argues, ENP can be seen as a rather successful project within EU ¢ € s foreign political context. ENP has allowed the EU to spread its foreign political influence beyond its member states' borders. In case of the "eastern" neighbourhood, ENP has definitely became a pro-Western "verbal empire" facilitating the spread of liberal and democratic values of governance as well as introduction of more efficient practices of market economy. For Estonia ENP has opened completely new foreign political perspectives. With the help of ENP Estonia has been able to create an image of itself as "eastern expert" within the Union. Simultaneously Estonia has practised somehow messianic elements in its relations with Ukraine, Moldova and Georgia by presenting itself as a model of successful post-Soviet transition and European integration.
Successes and Failures in Representing Small State Interests in European Union Decision-Making: the Case of Estonia
Vahur Made
Acta Societatis Martensis , 2010,
Abstract: This article challenges the rather common notion, which is wide-spread both in the media an in academic writings, that the enlargement of the European Union (EU) will result in the fragmentation and sophistication of the EU’s decision-making process. On the contrary, the author argues, the 2004 and 2007 EU enlargements have shown that EU decision-making has absorbed the increased number of 27 EU member states with surprising success.One important reason for this phenomenon seems to be the fact that most of the states that have recently joined the EU are either small or very small, with a population of less than 10 million inhabitants. Not only are the policy ambitions of such states much more modest compared to greater nations, but also the scale of access of small EU member states to all levels of the EU decision-making process is somehow more limited. Small member states primarily tend to focus on the later stages of the process, preferably inter-governmental decision-making. Early stage decision-making in the European Commission and even in the pre-Commission phases is often out of a small state’s reach.This article is based on a case study regarding Estonia’s participation in the working groups of the EU Council of Ministers (CoM), carried out in 2008. Among other aspects, the ability of Estonian ministries to monitor CoM working group decision-making, draft Estonian positions, carry out legislation-impact analyses, access the European Commission and lobby the EU institutions is analysed. The article also includes a survey conducted with Estonian officials who participated in the CoM working group meetings, and interviews with key officials responsible for designing Estonia’s participation and positions within the EU decision-making process.

Possible risk factors for Down syndrome and sex chromosomal aneuploidy in Mysore, South India
Malini Suttur,Ramachandra Nallur
Indian Journal of Human Genetics , 2007,
Abstract: Background: Down syndrome (DS) and sex chromosomal aneuploidy (SA) are common chromosomal anomalies causing congenital malformations and mental retardation in humans. The well-established risk factor, advanced maternal age, was not found in many of the DS and SA cases in India, while the other possible risk factors have not been well studied. In view of this, the present study has been made. Materials and Methods: During the last 5 years, 150 clinically suspected DS and 25 SA cases were referred to our laboratory for chromosome investigation from major hospitals of Mysore city. Chromosome preparations were made from these patients after informed consent was obtained. Well-spread G-banded metaphase plates were analyzed by automated LEICA KARYO software. Two hundred and 100 randomly selected families belonging to different religions were used as controls for the DS and SA cases, respectively. Statistical analysis was carried out using logistic regression Results: Out of the 150 cases of DS, 122 had free trisomy 21, two were mosaic trisomy 21, and one had translocation. Logistic regression of case-control study of DS children revealed that the odds ratio of uncle-niece marriages, or second cousin marriages, or parents lived in rural region, or exposure of the parents to chemicals, or parents education status, or habits (tobacco/ alcohol used) of father, or mother not undergone prenatal scanning, or mothers with previous abortions were significant when all the variables of that category were used one at a time. Exposure of the parents to chemicals, parents′ educational status, habits (tobacco/alcohol use) of the father, mother not undergone prenatal scanning, and history of previous abortions were significant when all the variables of that category were used one at a time. Similarly, except for consanguinity, history of previous abortions, and mother not undergone prenatal scanning, all other factors showed significant odds ratios in SA cases. Conclusion: Besides the known risk factors, consanguinity, region (rural/urban) of residence of parents, exposure of parents to chemicals, educational status of parents, habits of father, prenatal scanning, and reproductive performance of mother are possible risk factors for chromosomal aneuploidy.
