Sex determination AND morphometric parameters of human mandible
M. Punarjeevan Kumar,S. Lokanadham
International Journal of Research in Medical Sciences , 2013, DOI: 10.5455/2320-6012.ijrms20130511
Abstract: Goal: The knowledge about the anatomy of the mandible and its variations in age, sex and race will help physicians, surgeons, medico-legal authorities and anthropologists to give correct interpretations for the diagnostic procedures in living. Methods: We collected the human mandible bones (N=80) from the department of Anatomy, SVIMS university and around the Tirupati region to study the morphological and morphometric features by using 22 different parameters. Results: Among 22 parameters Six dominating parameters that possibly explain the nature of the mandible are height of the ramus, body thickness, anthropometric arch width, inter incisor width, mandibular index and mandibular angle are useful to determine the unknown sex of the mandible upto an extent of 75.2% in south Indian population. The incidence of the above mentioned sex determination parameters considered together and treated statistically. Conclusion: The present study reveals that the mandible of unknown gender can be sexed to the extent of 75% accuracy by six dominating parameters and not to consider these for complete sex determination of the mandible bone in osteometric studies.

Politics of Hunger and Development: A Sociological Review of India’s Developmental Discourse  [PDF]
M. Ashok Kumar
Sociology Mind (SM) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/sm.2012.24050
Abstract: This paper attempts to address the problem of hunger from the viewpoint of its social face against the backdrop of fast growing economy of India. Current sad state of affairs in the domain of poverty and hunger are nothing but the cumulative result of what happens in the Indian development planning since Independence, or at least in the name of development planning. This paper sociologically examines three most critical events in the history of Indian development planning, which are introduced to mitigate hunger and poverty, in both urban and rural India. The central focus of this paper is to highlight politics of those development initiatives and liquidation of public planning at the level of implementation, which eventually increased the gap between rich and poor, and left the Indian poor to their own fate. This paper also examines the most significant aspect of delinking power relations from the development discourse of India by providing more room for populist ideas with an aim to gain political mileage by the ruling elite. The present state of affairs with respect to poverty and hunger coupled with low standards of health, literacy and social awareness in India call for serious introspection. This paper, therefore, critically looks at Indian development discourse from the perspective of power relations, both established and emerging, which could alter our views on India and its growth story.
Solute dispersion along unsteady groundwater flow in a semi-infinite aquifer
N. Kumar,M. Kumar
Hydrology and Earth System Sciences (HESS) & Discussions (HESSD) , 1998,
Abstract: Analytical and numerical solutions are obtained for dispersion of pollutants along unsteady groundwater flow in a longitudinal direction through semi-infinite aquifers the permeability of which is either uniform or varies with position. Sources of pollution are both a concentrated point input at the origin and a spatially distributed background source. One expression chosen to represent the seasonal pattern of the time dependent velocity is sinusoidal behaviour over a year. The solutions obtained predict the time and distance from the location at which an input concentration is introduced at which the pollution concentration becomes harmless. Also, the time period for rehabilitating a polluted aquifer for human use can also be assessed.
Suggested health services research action to achieve reduction of neonatal mortality in India  [PDF]
Manoj Kumar, Haresh M Kirpalani
Open Journal of Preventive Medicine (OJPM) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/ojpm.2011.12009
Abstract: Despite several national programs to reduce infant mortality, India had repeatedly failed to achieve its set targets for infant mortality. There are approximately one million neonatal deaths in India each year which accounts for nearly two-thirds of the infant deaths in India. India’s current trajectories of neonatal and infant mortality rates make it unlikely that it will achieve its targets for infant mortality rate for 2015 set under the Millennium Development Goals. Since two-thirds of infant deaths in India are neonatal deaths, implementation of effective neonatal care strategies would be essential to reduce infant mortality considerably. The history of child health services in India suggests an inattention to qualitative parameters, hindering a reversal of its failures. We discuss a format of mixed-methods participatory research, integrated with routine district level household surveys (DLHS), as a model of health services research which would better delineate the problems encountered in delivering effective newborn care at the primary care level.
Active Deformation Measurements at Mishmi Complex of Eastern Himalayan Syntaxis  [PDF]
M. Devachandra Singh, Arun Kumar
International Journal of Geosciences (IJG) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ijg.2013.44068

We focus the geodynamic status of Eastern Himalayan Syntaxis with reference to Tibetan Plateau,Chinaand Burmese Arc using the crustal deformation constraints with GPS observation. We have used the GPS data, surface geomorphic constraints and compared the existing Pn velocity and Anisotropy [1], determined the crustal velocity of Tibetan Block and North andEast Chinablock as 2 - 8 mm/yr and 6 - 11 mm/yr considering the EHS as stable block. The lack of crustal deformation studies in EHS poses a gap in its geodynamic setup. The present attempt is first time in EHS to estimate crustal deformation by GPS. We presented GPS results from 10 stations along with one permanent station covering the EHS 2 - 3 mm/yr with an azimuth of N460. It reveals that the EHS is moving very slow rates, which accommodates the maximum strain (after Great Earthquake of8.7 M, Arunachal China Border 1950). The neotectonic activities are recorded along the major rivers traversing EHS follow the major thrusts and faults.

Removal of Moisture Content in Paper Machine Using Soft Computing Techniques  [PDF]
M. Senthil Kumar, K. Mahadevan
Circuits and Systems (CS) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/cs.2016.79220
Abstract: The choice of this investigation is to tune the proportional-integral-derivative (PID) parameters separately for controlling the moisture content in paper industry by using Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO). This paper boon a new algorithm for PID controller tuning based particle swarm optimization. PSO algorithm has recently developed as a very powerful method for real parameter optimization. This new process is proposed to combine both the algorithms to get better optimization values. The proposed algorithm tuned the PID parameters and its performance has been compared with PID algorithm. Compared to PID algorithm technique, dynamic performance requirements such as rise time settling time and peak overshoot optimal values produced by PSO. The plant model represented by the transfer function is obtained by the system identification toolbox.
Does Animation Facilitate Better Learning in Primary Education? A Comparative Study of Three Different Subjects  [PDF]
M. Shreesha, Sanjay Kumar Tyagi
Creative Education (CE) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2016.713183
Abstract: The research and innovation in the field of computer and technology has made significant contribution for the development of new pedagogical strategies in all levels of education. The use of digital tools like animation has changed the way of providing education, especially in primary school level, adding an element of entertainment to the process of teaching and learning. It is assumed that the use of animated instructional material can help to present a complex concept in a simple form, create more interest about the subject, motivate the pupil for better learning, increase the accuracy of the message and play a crucial role in improving the students’ academic performance. Against this background, the present paper attempts to assess the efficacy of animation on different subjects in primary education. Here, in the study, an experiment has been conducted using animation to teach three subjects Mathematics, Language and Science; and students’ performance was compared and analyzed using fuzzy statistical tools.
