Amigos: Social Networking with Advertisement Management
Devika Joshi,Rutuja Kulkarni,Arundhati Rao,Pooja Wagh
International Journal of Soft Computing & Engineering , 2013,
Abstract: With the vast growth of Internet use nowadays, business advertising has enjoyed a more advanced phase. There is a wider selection for media, advertising cost and market range. The challenge is to find which one to focus on. Among the many options, social networking site has turned out to be one of the most promising media today. Keeping this motive Amigos offers completely redesigned advertisement management algorithm which takes advantage of the profile data and hence targets advertisement directly to user according to his interests. Amigos covers most of the essential aspects of social network including editable profiles, messages, groups , events , status updates , uploading photos. Although that is true , the social network does have some unique features of its own like segregation of personal and professional information and displaying the UI accordingly. It would help people willing to join a single networking site and yet be able to control the two fronts of their lives separately. The advertising module looks over the space management of ads and displays them according to user preferences. Not only that, it also gives the advertiser different options to choose from fixed spaces for frequently accessed pages or real time bidding for inner pages .Thus using Social networking the advertising industry can target masses and lead the advertisers to build long term success in the performance advertising industry.
Clinical Correlation between Plasma Homocysteine Level and Coronary Artery Disease in Indian Patients  [PDF]
R. Ranjith, P. Devika
World Journal of Cardiovascular Diseases (WJCD) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/wjcd.2017.712047
Abstract: Objective: The aim of this study was to evaluate correlation between plasma homocysteine and coronary artery disease (CAD) in Indian patients. Methods: This study included 150 patients, 100 subjects in study group with angiographically diagnosed CAD and 50 subjects in control group with a normal coronary angiogram. In the study group, patients were divided into three subgroups viz.: CAD only, CAD with hypertension and CAD with type 2 diabetes mellitus. Plasma homocysteine, lipid profile and other risk factors were compared. Results: Mean homocysteine levels in study group (38.34 ± 15.25 μmol/L) were significantly higher (p < 0.01) than control group (9.41 ± 4.22 μmol/L). No association was found between homocysteine level and conventional risk factors. Furthermore, no significant correlation was found between plasma homocysteine and lipid components in different groups of patients. Conclusion: The study demonstrated that increased levels of homocysteine are independently related to CAD. However, further studies involving a larger sample size will be required to substantiate the findings of the current study.
Fortalecendo o policiamento democrático e a responsabiliza??o na Commonwealth do Pacífico
Prasad, Devika;
Sur. Revista Internacional de Direitos Humanos , 2006, DOI: 10.1590/S1806-64452006000200006
Abstract: nine island countries make up the commonwealth pacific - fiji, kiribati, nauru, papua new guinea, samoa, solomon islands, tonga, tuvalu, and vanuatu. across the region, issues around policing and importantly police reform are key governance priorities, as well as being human rights concerns. policing in this particular region contends with large geographical distances within countries often spread over many islands, heterogeneous societies, violent crime, and sporadic political crises. the police must be equipped to meet these myriad challenges in support of democracy and human rights. this paper seeks ways to strengthen democratic policing in commonwealth pacific countries, by examining accountability over the police in particular. it outlines the legal frameworks, and institutional processes and mechanisms already in place to hold the police accountable - a key element of democratic policing. focusing mainly on police accountability, the aim of this paper is to describe how entrenched democratic policing is in the countries of the region, and also highlights strategies to better solidify democratic policing.
Poetische Ankünfte und Aufbrüche: Lyrische Verk rperlichung des ethnografischen Feldes Poetic Arrivals and Departures: Bodying the Ethnographic Field in Verse Llegadas y salidas poéticas: Expresando el campo de la etnografía en verso

Forum : Qualitative Social Research , 2008,
Abstract: Sozialforschung hat sich über mehrere Jahrzehnte mit dem linguistic turn besch ftigt, der insoweit als revolution r erachtet wurde, als sich Wissenschaftlerinnen und Wissenschaftler mit Fragen von Wirklichkeit, Wissen und Repr sentation besch ftigten. Innerhalb der Ethnografie wurde diese Wende insbesondere auch begrü t mit Blick auf Fragen der Intersubjektivit t, Reflexivit t und Positionalit t. Erst seit Kurzem hat das performative Paradigma zus tzlich Einfluss gewonnen, in dem Ethnograf/innen und Feldteilnehmer/innen auch in ihrer K rperlichkeit und in dem Regionen in ihrer R umlichkeit gefasst werden. Meine aktuelle ethnografische Studie über die Erfahrungen indischer Frauen mit gem des Hinduismus arrangierten Heiraten startete ich zun chst mit einigem theoretischen Vorwissen über und einer gewissen Aufmerksamkeit für positionelle und performative Besonderheiten, da ich wusste, dass ich mit Frauen zu tun haben würde, deren Entscheidungen sich sehr von meinen eigenen unterschieden. Aber sehr bald erkannte ich, dass meine Krise der Repr sentation materieller, textueller, epistemologischer und theoretischer Art war. Meine Felderfahrungen lie en mich meine Vorstellungen von ethnografischer Repr sentation grundlegend neu überdenken. In diesem Beitrag zeige ich meinen Weg in Theorie, Text und Performance bzw. weg von ihnen und ich zeige, wie ich meine eigene Feldforschung als k rperliche und r umliche material performances – eigene und die meiner Forschungspartnerinnen – rekonzeptualisiert habe. Ich wende mich dabei im Besonderen der symbolischen Analyse eines Gedichtes zu, das im Verlauf meiner Feldarbeit als performativer Text entstanden ist. Ich verstehe dieses Gedicht als eine sideways mystory, die mir erlaubte, von der Interpretin von Erz hlungen zur Kulturkritikerin zu werden, die Verborgenes aufdecken und das Publikum anregen m chte, über komplexe Wirklichkeiten nachzudenken und in ihnen zu handeln. URN: urn:nbn:de:0114-fqs0802248 For decades, social research has engaged the "linguistic turn," which was considered revolutionary in the ways that scholars began to reframe reality, knowledge, and representation. Among ethnographers, this turn was robustly embraced, especially at the level of intersubjectivity, reflexivity, and positionality in field practices. More recently, the performance paradigm reframed the field, the ethnographer, and her participants as embodied persons and places with bodied terrains and topographies. In my recent ethnographic life history study about Indian women's experiences in Hindu arranged marriages, I entered my field
Clinical Neurotoxic Disorders : Past, Present and Future
Nag Devika
Annals of Indian Academy of Neurology , 2001,
Abstract: Neurotoxins have existed on the earth from times immemorial. Old neurotoxic disorders were due to ingestion/ exposure of heavy metals and food like lathyrus sativus over a long period of time. The 20th Century with rapid industrialsation and expanding chemical and drug industry has spawned several new, hitherto unknown disorders. Old disorders continue to exist e.g. fluorosis, arsenicosis, lathyrism, manganism and lead neuropathy, along with new diseases like Minamata disease, subacute myelo optic neuropathy (SMON), MPTP-Parkinsonian syndorme, triorthcresyl phosphate (TOCP) neuroparalytic disease, pesticide induced seizures, tremor and neuropathy, solvent encephalopthy, antipileptic drug foetal syndrome and excitotoxin induced behavioural disorders. Studies on pesticides Organochlorine and organophosphates, synthetic pyrethrins, solvents, heavy metals and substances abuse in the Indian context confirm the neurotoxic nature of many synthetic substances. Future problems envisaged are of concern to clinical neurologists as many of these neurotoxic disorders mimic syndromes of well known neurological disease. The new millenium poses a challenge to the clinician as newer compounds in industry, food, drugs and chemical war agents are being developed. Molecular genetics has advanced rapidly with release of the human genome map. Animal cloning and genetically modified plant products have entered the food chain. How safe are these new inventions for the central nervous system is a big question? India cannot afford disasters like Union Carbide′s Bhopal gas leak nor be a silent spectator to manipulative biotechnology. Unless it is proven beyond all doubt to be a safe innovation, Chemicals have to be cautiously introduced in our environment. To Study, ascertain and confirm safety or neurotoxicity is an exciting challenge for the neuroscientists of the 21st century.
Measurement of longitudinal single-spin asymmetries for $W^{\pm}$ boson production in polarized $p+p$ collisions at $\sqrt{s}=510$ GeV at STAR

Physics , 2015,
Abstract: $W^\pm$ boson production in longitudinally polarized $p+p$ collisions provides unique and clean access to the individual helicity polarizations of $u$ / $d$ quarks and anti-quarks. Due to the maximal violation of parity in the coupling, $W$ bosons couple to left-handed quarks and right-handed anti-quarks and hence offer direct probes of their respective helicity distributions in the nucleon. These can be extracted from measured parity-violating longitudinal single-spin asymmetries, $A_L$, for $W^{+(-)}$ boson production as a function of the decay lepton (positron) pseudo-rapidity $\eta$. The STAR experiment is well equipped to measure $A_L$ for $W^\pm$ boson production for $|\eta|<1$. The published STAR $A_L$ results (2011 and 2012 data combined) have been used by several theoretical analyses suggesting a significant impact in constraining the helicity distributions of anti-$u$ and anti-$d$ quarks. In 2013 the STAR experiment has collected a large data sample of $\sim$250 pb$^{-1}$ which is more than 3 times larger than the total integrated luminosity in 2012, at $\sqrt{s}=510$ GeV with an average beam polarization of $\sim$54\%, comparable to run 2012. The status of the 2013 $A_L$ analysis will be discussed along with an overview of future plans.

Optimization of Bio-Nano Interface Using Gold Nanostructures as a Model Nanoparticle System
Devika B Chithrani
Insciences Journal , 2011,
Abstract: Better knowledge of interface between nanotechnology and biology will lead to advanced biomedical tools for imaging and therapeutics. In this review, recent progress in the understanding of how size, shape, and surface properties of nanoparticles (NPs) affect intracellular uptake, transport, and processing of NPs will be discussed. Gold NPs are used as a model system in this regard since their size, shape, and surface properties can be easily manipulated. Recent experimental and theoretical studies have shown that NP-uptake is dependent upon size and shape of the NPs. Within the size range of 2-100 nm, Gold nanoparticles (GNPs) of diameter 50 nm demonstrate the highest uptake. Cellular uptake studies of rod-shaped gold nanoparticles (GNRs) show that there is a decrease in uptake as the aspect ratio of GNRs increases. The surface ligand and charge of NPs play an important role in their uptake process as well. Different proteins on the surface of the NPs can be coated for effective targeting of NPs into specific organelles. Once in the cell, most of the NPs are trafficked via an endo-lysosomal path followed by a receptor mediated endocytosis process at the cell membrane. Exocytosis of NPs is also dependent on the size and shape of the NPs, however, the trend was different to endocytosis process. These findings provide useful information to tailor nano-scale devices at single cell level for effective applications in diagnosis, therapeutics, and imaging.
An Overview of Web Data Extraction Techniques
Devika K,Subu Surendran
International Journal of Scientific Engineering and Technology , 2013,
Abstract: Web pages are usually generated for visualization not for data exchange. Each page may contain several groups of structured data. Web pages are generated by plugging data values to predefined templates. Manual data extraction from semi supervised web pages is a difficult task. This paper focuseson study of various automatic web data extraction techniques. There are mainly two types of techniques one is based on wrapper induction another is automatic extraction. In wrapper induction set of extraction rules are used, which are learnt from multiple pages containing similar data records.

Abstract: HPTLC fingerprints of mother plants and regenerants of W. somnifera (L) Dunal. var JA20, JA134, GLV and wild plants were analysed. Extracts of these drugs were made with three different solvent systems viz. methanol, petroleum ether and chloroform. TLC developed for these extracts prior to perform HPTLC. Toluene, ethyl acetate and formic acid in the ratio (5:5:1) used as the mobile phase. TLC A1 sheets with silica gel 60F254 are used as the stationary phase. HPTLC fingerprints of mother plants and regenerants were visually documented based upon the Rf value obtained at 254nm and 366nm. Visual comparison of HPTLC fingerprints for the identification of somaclonal variants produced in tissue cultured plants were compared with its mother plants on the basis of the colour of the bands and Rf value of each band.
