K. A. Mohamed Junaid
Circuits and Systems (CS) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/cs.2016.78104
Abstract: Worldwide breast cancer is the most common form of cancer death occurring in 12.6% of women. This paper presents a cost effective approach to classify the normal, malignant and benign tumor using two layer neural network back propagation algorithm. Back propagation algorithm is used to train the neural network. Parallelization techniques speed up the computation process and as a result two layer neural networks outperform the previous work in terms of accuracy. Breast cancer tumor database used for the testing purpose is from the CIA machine learning repository. The highest accuracy of 97.12% is achieved using the two layer neural network back propagation algorithm.

Salam Khan
Advances in Applied Sociology (AASoci) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/aasoci.2017.78020
Abstract: This study explored the African American college students’ retention behavior and identifies the effect of different social, psychological and other factors. Randomly selected students from predominant African American university completed the perceived stress scale, self-motivation scale, parental involvement, childhood economic situation, mentorship and drug and alcohol use questionnaire. Non-parametric analyses suggested that higher stress level, childhood poverty, lack of parental involvement or support, without a mentor support and lack of self-motivation increase the likelihood of dropping out from college. This study’s findings have important implications for college retention among African American students.
Measuring Religiosity and Workplace Spirituality in Pakistan: a Case Study of Armed Forces and University Teachers
Junaid Zafar
Cross-Cultural Communication , 2010, DOI: 10.3968/990
Abstract: The article reviews workplace spirituality that began as a grass-root movement and has now become a philosophy used to better management in achieving its organizational goals. The concept however is still strange to countries like Pakistan which are swamped with ignorance and business myopia.The article finds out the extent to which the sectors like Pak. Army and Teaching are experiencing religiosity and workplace spirituality. For this, individuals have been selected from different age groups and positions and case study methodology has been implemented. The study finds out that both sectors experience spirituality and religiosity more or less to a certain extent but at the same time fail to identify any organization where workplace spirituality is being followed in letter and spirit. Key words: Religion; Workplace SpiritualityResumé: L'article passe en revue la spiritualité en milieu de travail en tant qu'un mouvement de base et elle est devenue maitenant une philosophie utilisée pour une meilleure gestion dans la réalisation de ses objectifs organisationnels. Le concept est cependant toujours inaccoutumé à des pays comme le Pakistan qui sont submergés par l'ignorance et la myopie des affaires.L'article decouvre l'ampleur dans laquelle les secteurs comme les Armées pakistanaise et l'enseignement connaissent la religiosité et la spiritualité en milieu de travail. Pour cela, des individus ont été choisis parmi des groupes d'age et de position différents et une méthodologie de l'étude de cas a été mise en uvre. L'étude conclut que les deux secteurs ont plus ou moins d'expérience de la spiritualité et de la religiosité dans une certaine mesure, mais en même temps, elle ne peut pas identifier aucune organisation où la spiritualité en milieu de travail est suivie littérallement ou spirituellement.Mots-clés: religion; spiritualité en milieu de travail

Efficient Closed Form Cut-Off Planes and Propagation Planes Characteristics for Dielectric Slab Loaded Boundary Value Problems
Junaid Zafar
Buletin Teknik Elektro dan Informatika , 2012,
Abstract: The geometrical relationship between the cut-off and propagating planes of any waveguide system is a prerequisite for any design process. The characterization of cut-off planes and optimisation are challenging for numerical methods, closed-form solutions are always preferred. In this paper Maxwell’s coupled field equations are used to characterise twin E-plane and H-plane slab loaded boundary value problems. The single mode bandwidths and dispersion characteristics of these structures are presented and critically compared. The impact of slab mobility upon cut-off and propagations planes has been envisaged. The presented formulation has been extended further to derive a vectorized Green function expression linking electric and magnetic fields for the characterization of planar waveguide structures.
The role of Information Technology in the Personnel Department: HRM in the Knowledge economy

Canadian Social Science , 2010,
Abstract: With the increasing possibilities of providing services to employees through Internet and Intranet applications, Human Resource professionals just need to click once or twice and a specially designed HR website leads to the required information. Employees would no longer be held responsible for the operational and administrative HR activities. Electronic-Human Resource Management (e-HRM) is the engine for pushing down the costs of any company and making it profitable. Information technology has been identified as an impetus of HR’s transition to becoming a strategic business partner. In this study, we extend this work one step further and explore the role of information technology in shaping the competency requirements of HR professionals. Key words: e-HRM; Human Resource Information Systems Résumé: Avec une possibilité croissante de fournir des services aux employés via les applications d'Internet et d'Intranet, les professionnels des ressources humaines suffisent de cliquer une ou deux fois et un site web spécialement con u pour les RH peut les conduire à l'information requise. Les employés ne seront plus tenus responsables pour les activités opérationnelles et administratives des RH. La gestion des ressources humaines électronique (GRH électronique) est le moteur pour réduire les co ts de la compagnie et la rendre rentable. Les technologies de l'information ont été identifiées comme un nouvel élan de la transition des ressources humaines à devenir un partenaire d'affaires stratégique. Dans cette étude, nous étendons ce travail un peu plus loin et explorons le r le des technologies informatiques dans l'élaboration des exigences relatives aux compétences des professionnels des RH.

Neurofibromatosis Type 1 Associated with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis: Coincidence or Possible Link
Junaid Nabi
Case Reports in Neurological Medicine , 2013, DOI: 10.1155/2013/910656
Abstract: Introduction. Hashimoto's thyroiditis is a common form of chronic autoimmune thyroid disease (AITD) and often coexists with other autoimmune diseases, but Hashimoto’s thyroiditis associated with an autosomal dominant neurofibromatosis type 1 is exceedingly rare. Case Presentation. A 30-year-old Bengali woman presented to the OPD with complaints of aching pain and tingling sensation in her hands and feet. Physical examination revealed dysmorphic facies, nodular swelling in the neck, cafe-au-lait spots, and neurofibromas covering the entire surface of her body. Her thyroid hormones were within normal limits. Thyroid ultrasound revealed a cystic area in the left lobe of the gland, and ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration cytology revealed lymphocytic infiltration of the gland, suggesting Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. High levels of autoimmune antibodies such as antithyroglobulin and antimicrosomal antibodies confirmed the diagnosis. Conclusion. When encountered with a patient of Neurofibromatosis type 1, a physician should be careful about the possibility of a concomitant autoimmune disease. Clinical presentation of neurofibromatosis and Noonan syndrome often overlaps and recent studies have implicated a mutation in NF1 gene in the etiology of NFNS. More extensive reports and further investigations of such patients having combination of neurofibromatosis type 1 and autoimmune thyroiditis will certainly provide better understanding of this link in the near future. 1. Introduction Hashimoto’s thyroiditis or goitrous autoimmune thyroiditis is a common form of chronic autoimmune thyroid disease (AITD). The disorder affects up to 2% of the general population [1] and is more common in older women and ten times more frequent in women than in men [2]. Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) is an autosomal dominant neurocutaneous disorder, characterized by neurofibromas, café-au-lait spots, axillary and inguinal freckling, and Lisch nodules in the eye and occasionally associated with optic glioma and difficulties in learning. NF1 is caused by mutation of the NF1 gene on chromosome 17q11.2 [3]. The NF1 gene encodes for neurofibromin, which acts as a tumor suppressor protein. Noonan syndrome (NS) is an autosomal dominant disorder, which was reported first by Kobylinski in 1883 and later described by Noonan and Ehmke in 1963 [4] with incidence estimated at 1 in 1000 to 1 in 2500 live births [5]. It is characterized by unusual triangular-shaped face, micrognathia, hypertelorism, down-slanting eyes, ptosis, low-set ears, webbed neck, congenital heart disease, short stature,
Artificial Intelligence Based Cognitive Routing for Cognitive Radio Networks
Junaid Qadir
Computer Science , 2013, DOI: 10.1007/s10462-015-9438-6
Abstract: Cognitive radio networks (CRNs) are networks of nodes equipped with cognitive radios that can optimize performance by adapting to network conditions. While cognitive radio networks (CRN) are envisioned as intelligent networks, relatively little research has focused on the network level functionality of CRNs. Although various routing protocols, incorporating varying degrees of adaptiveness, have been proposed for CRNs, it is imperative for the long term success of CRNs that the design of cognitive routing protocols be pursued by the research community. Cognitive routing protocols are envisioned as routing protocols that fully and seamless incorporate AI-based techniques into their design. In this paper, we provide a self-contained tutorial on various AI and machine-learning techniques that have been, or can be, used for developing cognitive routing protocols. We also survey the application of various classes of AI techniques to CRNs in general, and to the problem of routing in particular. We discuss various decision making techniques and learning techniques from AI and document their current and potential applications to the problem of routing in CRNs. We also highlight the various inference, reasoning, modeling, and learning sub tasks that a cognitive routing protocol must solve. Finally, open research issues and future directions of work are identified.
