Megalithism and Tribal Ritualism: A Passage through the Kurumbas of Attappadi  [PDF]
Manjula Poyil
Advances in Historical Studies (AHS) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ahs.2013.22009
Abstract: The study of mortuary practices of Megalithic communities and its use as the basis for reconstructing the past society is unique in archaeology as it represents the direct and purposeful culmination of conscious behavior of the followers of this cultural trait. There are voluminous studies on the Megalithic builders of South India, including Kerala, written by prominent archaeologists and anthropologists from the early decades of the nineteenth century. Most of them ignored the continuity of Megalithic tradition, except a scant reference to the erection of funeral edifices among tribes like the Kurumbas and Mudugas of Attappadi and Mala-arayans of the Thiruvananthapuram district of Kerala. A study of the living Megalithic practices provides clues to ethnographic parallels, existing belief systems and habitation sites of the present communities. The present study discusses the cultural aspects of the rituals related to living Megalithic tradition among the Attappadi tribes, of the Palakkad district of Kerala. The study of the mortuary practices of the Kurumbas raises two important questions-firstly, how far this tribe can be seen as the actual successor of Megalithic builders of Kerala and, secondly, how does the social differentiation within the Kurumba community got reflected in its mortuary practices, just like the Megalithic builders of the past.
Developing a Music Therapy Programme within a Person Centred Planning Framework
Jason Noone
Voices: A World Forum for Music Therapy , 2008,
Abstract: This report describes the development of a music therapy programme for people with developmental disabilities in a day facility in Ireland. The facility is run by Enable Ireland, a national voluntary organisation, and provides therapies, supports and training for service users. Service provision is organised according to the principles of person centred planning (PCP), a model which places the desires, interests and capacities of each service user at the centre of the decision-making process. As the music therapy programme has developed, the parallels between the music therapy concepts which informed it and the PCP model have became more apparent. The main purpose of this report is to detail the core features and aimed-for outcomes of the person-centred planning process and highlight corresponding concepts from humanistic music therapy, community music therapy and music therapy for empowerment. Implications of coordinating the music therapy programme with the PCP process as implemented at Enable Ireland are also suggested. The core features of PCP are considered highly useful in conceptualising a resource-based, humanistic music therapy programme for people with disabilities. In addition, music-making in its various forms is considered a valuable activity which has the potential to satisfy the outcomes of the PCP model.
CA-AODV: Congestion Adaptive AODV Routing Protocol for Streaming Video in Mobile Ad Hoc Networks  [PDF]
Int'l J. of Communications, Network and System Sciences (IJCNS) , 2008, DOI: 10.4236/ijcns.2008.14040
Abstract: Whenever streaming of multimedia based data such as video, audio and text is performed traffic will be more and network becomes congested in mobile ad hoc networks. The present routing protocols are not able to cope up with this situation. It is observed that network congestion is the dominant reason for packet loss, longer delay and delay jitter in streaming video. Most of the present routing protocols are not designed to adapt to congestion control. We propose a new routing protocol, Congestion Adaptive AODV Routing Protocol (CA-AODV), to address the congestion issues considering delay, packet loss and routing overhead. To evaluate their performance, we have considered mpeg4 for streaming video data using network simulator (NS2). CA-AODV outperforms present protocols in delivery ratio and delay, while introducing less routing protocol overhead. The result demonstrates that integrating congestion adaptive mechanisms with AODV is a promising way to improve performance for heavy traffic load in multimedia based mobile ad hoc networks.
An Approach for Content Retrieval from Web Pages Using Clustering Techniques  [PDF]
R. Manjula, A. Chilambuchelvan
Circuits and Systems (CS) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/cs.2016.79230
Abstract: Mining the content from an information database provides challenging solutions to the industry experts and researchers, due to the overcrowded information in huge data. In web searching, the information retrieved is not an appropriate, because it gives ambiguous information for the user query, and the user cannot get relevant information within the stipulated time. To overcome these issues, we propose a new methodology for information retrieval EPCRR by providing the top most exact information to the user, by using the collaborative clustered automated filter which makes use of the collaborative data set and filter works on the prediction by providing the highest ranking for the exact data retrieved. The retrieval works on the basis of recommendation of data which consists of relevant data set with highest priority from the cluster of data which is on high usage. In this work, we make use of the automated wrapper which works similar to the meta crawler functionality and it obtains the content in the semantic usage data format. Obtained information from the user to the agent will be ranked based on the Enabled Pile clustered data with respect to the metadata information from the agent and end-user. The information is given to the end-user with the top most ranking data within the stipulated time and the remaining top information will be moved to the data repository for future use. The data collected will remain stable based on the user preference and works on the intelligence system approach in which the user can choose any information under any instances and can be provided with suitable high range of exact content. In this approach, we find that the proposed algorithm has produced better results than existing work and it costs less online computation time.
Primary ciliary dyskinesia: a report from ATS 2001, May 18–23, San Francisco

Respiratory Research , 2001, DOI: 10.1186/rr75
Abstract: The American Thoracic Society Meeting was held this year in San Francisco, California. This meeting is the largest scientific meeting in the world targeted to diseases of the lung, with several thousand delegates in attendance in 2001. Clinicians, scientists, and clinician-scientists attended the meeting, together with a range of personnel from allied fields. Though the main emphasis of the meeting is on the common lung diseases, generally, each year relatively rare diseases get some special attention. This year, on consecutive days there were two sessions on primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD), a genetic disease of ciliary structure and function. The sessions were well attended by delegates from a range of disciplines, and the speakers were selected from across the research spectrum. The aims of the presentations were to provide updates on the nature of the disease and its use as a human disease model, and also to report exciting new findings in relation to clinical aspects, cell biology and genetics.The aspects of the clinical features of PCD were reviewed by two featured speakers, Peter Cole (Host Defence Unit, Brompton Hospital London, UK) and Peadar Noone (University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, USA). Aruna Sannuti (University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, USA) also presented clinical and phenotypic data from a prospective study of a large cohort of patients with PCD. The high proportion of patients with a history of neonatal respiratory distress, recurrent otitis media, and a requirement for ear drainage tubes was again emphasized. The importance of a careful diagnostic work-up and accurate phenotyping for subsequent genetic studies was stressed. Of particular note was the report of isolation of mucoid Pseudomonas aeruginosa in older patients (9 out of 54) with PCD. This is usually regarded as a strong marker of cystic fibrosis (CF), a similar but distinct airway host defence disease. Normal ion transport in nasal epithelia in a subset of patients, the p

Siderophore production by uropathogenic Escherichia coli
Vagrali Manjula
Indian Journal of Pathology and Microbiology , 2009,
Abstract: Urinary tract infection (UTI) is one of the most frequently encountered problems in ambulatory medicine. The present study was designed to determine siderophore production as the urovirulence factor of Escherichia coli isolated from the patients of UTI. A total of 160 strains of E. coli isolated from urine of patients with clinically diagnosed UTI were included in the study and 50 fecal isolates of E. coli, siderophore production was seen in 156 (97.5%). In 50 fecal isolates, siderophore production was seen in 2 (4%). Siderophore production has been shown to be more frequent in E. coli from patients with UTI, than in fecal isolates. The results suggest that siderophore production positive strains can be considered as UPEC. Thus, although a great deal has been learned regarding E. coli virulence mechanisms in UTI, much remains to be learned and the practical application of our growing understanding of E. coli virulence factors to the prevention and treatment of UTI has to be continued.

International Journal of Pharmacy and Biological Sciences , 2011,
Abstract: We aimed at studying MAU and its relationship with anthropometric variables in type 2 diabetic and non diabetic females of Dakishina Kannada district in Indian population. 205 participants without diabetes and 226 participants with type 2 diabetes of the study group were recruited. Out of which 73 females were diabetic and 111 were healthy subjects and used as control. These participants were free from any pre existing complications. Their anthropometric variables, blood pressure and MAU contents were assessed accordingly. When the anthropometric variables and diastolic blood pressure with MAU in two groups were compared, we found a highly significant (p<0.001) relationship. The mean value of MAU (30.8±26.9) in type 2 diabetics was higher when compared with Non diabetic females(17.3±12.7).Diastolic blood pressure showed statistical significance in type 2 diabetics when compared with non diabetic females(p<0.001). Anthropometric variables showed a high significance in type 2 diabetic and non diabetic females when compared with MAU. Diastolic blood pressure was significantly high in type 2 diabetic when compared with non diabetic females. Thus it reveals that anthropometric variables can be used as a target for primary adjourner of renal and cardio vascular disease.
