Law demands "Care" - not "Cure"
Shenoy Gopinath
Journal of Gynecological Endoscopy and Surgery , 2009,
Abstract: In today′s medicolegal scenario specially related to endoscopic surgery, patient expects a miraculous result or a definite cure.However the author who has experience of both the fields i.e. gynecological endoscopy and medicolegal aspects, clears that the law doesn′t expect a 100% cure but expects proper medical care by the concerned gynecologist, gynecological endoscopist. Patient also has to be informed about this important fact.
An Approach to Assess the Resiliency of Electric Power Grids  [PDF]
Navin Shenoy, R. Ramakumar
Journal of Power and Energy Engineering (JPEE) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/jpee.2015.311001

Modern electric power grids face a variety of new challenges and there is an urgent need to improve grid resilience more than ever before. The best approach would be to focus primarily on the grid intelligence rather than implementing redundant preventive measures. This paper presents the foundation for an intelligent operational strategy so as to enable the grid to assess its current dynamic state instantaneously. Traditional forms of real-time power system security assessment consist mainly of methods based on power flow analyses and hence, are static in nature. For dynamic security assessment, it is necessary to carry out time-domain simulations (TDS) that are computationally too involved to be performed in real-time. The paper employs machine learning (ML) techniques for real-time assessment of grid resiliency. ML techniques have the capability to organize large amounts of data gathered from such time-domain simulations and thereby extract useful information in order to better assess the system security instantaneously. Further, this paper develops an approach to show that a few operating points of the system called as landmark points contain enough information to capture the nonlinear dynamics present in the system. The proposed approach shows improvement in comparison to the case without landmark points.

Oral hygiene practices and habits among dental professionals in Chennai
Gopinath V
Indian Journal of Dental Research , 2010,
Abstract: Aims and objectives : The present study was carried out to assess the oral hygiene practices and habits among practicing general dentists. Materials and Methods : The study was carried out in four dental schools with the help of a self administered questionnaire. The questionnaire covered dentists′ oral self care, smoking habits, professional reading and oral health concepts. A total of 700 dentists responded, of which 457 were males. Recommended oral self care (ROSC) included tooth brushing one per day, eating sugary snacks daily or rarely and regularly using fluoride tooth paste. Results : The data obtained was then subjected to statistical analyses and evaluated using chi-square tests and logistic regressions.It was found that 55.9% of all respondents brushed twice a day, 59.4% consumed sugar containing snacks less than once daily and 55.1% of them used fluoride containing paste regularly while brushing. 81.1% of the 700 dentists never used tobacco products. In all, 19.6% 0f the practicing general dentists followed recommended oral self care. Conclusion : From the present study, it can be concluded that only 19.6% of south Indian dentists follow recommended oral self care and hence awareness programs and continuous dental education programs among dentists is essential to improve the present scenario and to increase the number of dental professionals following ROSC.

Droplet rebound from rigid or strongly hydrophobic surfaces
A. Gopinath
Physics , 2005,
Abstract: A weakly deformable droplet impinging on a rigid surface rebounds if the surface is intrinsically hydrophobic or if the gas film trapped underneath the droplet is able to keep the interfaces from touching. A simple, physically motivated model inspired by analysis of droplets colliding with deformable interfaces is proposed in order to investigate the dynamics of the rebound process and the effects of gravity. The analysis yields estimates of the bounce time that are in very good quantitative agreement with recent experimental data (Okumura et. al., (2003)) and provides significant improvement over simple scaling results.
eAnt-Miner : An Ensemble Ant-Miner to Improve the ACO Classification
Gopinath Chennupati
Computer Science , 2014,
Abstract: Ant Colony Optimization (ACO) has been applied in supervised learning in order to induce classification rules as well as decision trees, named Ant-Miners. Although these are competitive classifiers, the stability of these classifiers is an important concern that owes to their stochastic nature. In this paper, to address this issue, an acclaimed machine learning technique named, ensemble of classifiers is applied, where an ACO classifier is used as a base classifier to prepare the ensemble. The main trade-off is, the predictions in the new approach are determined by discovering a group of models as opposed to the single model classification. In essence, we prepare multiple models from the randomly replaced samples of training data from which, a unique model is prepared by aggregating the models to test the unseen data points. The main objective of this new approach is to increase the stability of the Ant-Miner results there by improving the performance of ACO classification. We found that the ensemble Ant-Miners significantly improved the stability by reducing the classification error on unseen data.
Construction of Environmental Knowledge: Experiences from India
Deepak Gopinath,Manik D Gopinath
Journal of Sustainable Development , 2009, DOI: 10.5539/jsd.v1n1p2
Abstract: This paper explored key issues in how knowledge of the environment is constructed in the Third World. Drawing on which, it showed that there are both explicit and implicit ways in which this knowledge is contested. Particularly, it discussed how implicit forms of contestation are problematic in Third World economies because they are exclusionary and also where such issues become ‘headlines’ only after environmental damage and accompanying social injustices have resulted. It concludes by raising crucial questions for environmental research in the Third World where there is limited role of governments and communities in protecting their environment.
Endo-perio lesions: Diagnosis and clinical considerations
Shenoy Nina,Shenoy Arvind
Indian Journal of Dental Research , 2010,
Abstract: The interrelationship between periodontal and endodontic disease has aroused confusion, queries and controversy. Differentiating between periodontal and endodontic problems can be difficult. A symptomatic tooth may have pain of periodontal and/or pulpal origin. The nature of that pain is often the first clue in determining the etiology of such a problem. Radiographic and clinical evaluation can help clarify the nature of the problem. In some cases, the influence of pulpal pathology may create periodontal involvement. In others, periodontal pathology may create pulpal pathology. This review article discusses the various clinical aspects to be considered for accurately diagnosing and treating endo-perio lesions.
