Fast DC Mode Prediction Scheme For Intra 4x4 Block In H.264/AVC Video Coding Standard
Tajdid UI Alam,Jafor Ikbal,Touhid Ul Alam
International Journal of Advanced Computer Sciences and Applications , 2012,
Abstract: In this paper, the researchers proposed a new scheme for DC mode prediction in intra frame for 4X4 block. In this scheme, the upper and left neighboring pixels would be used to predict each of the pixels in the 4X4 block with different weight. The prediction equations for each position of the 4X4 block in DC mode would be static with fixed weighting coefficients. As a result, the computational time for intra frame would be decreased considerably with an increase in PSNR.
An evaluation of wood properties of Pinus caribeae (Morelet) in Oluwa Forest Reserve, Ondo State, Nigeria
UI Udoakpan
Ethiopian Journal of Environmental Studies and Management , 2013,
Abstract: This paper examines the effects of within tree variation on wood density, ring width and anisotropic shrinkage of Pinus caribeae (Morelet) among tree partitions in Oluwa pine plantation. Five 15-year old Pinus caribeae (Morelet) in three partitions were randomly selected from the plantation and felled for the study. Wood samples were prepared from five height levels, 10%, 30%, 50%, 70% and 90% and also among the wood type; inner wood, middle wood and outer wood positions of the stem according to standard procedures. The result showed the wood is dense, dimensionally stable with an average density of 0.55g/cm3. Among three partitions, ring width variation had a marked effect on wood density and anisotropic shrinkage of the wood (p < 0.05). A strong positive correlation was established between density and shrinkage properties. The relationship between ring width and anisotropic shrinkage was positive. Thus, it may be possible to use wood density and grain orientation biometry to predict anisotropic shrinkage of the wood and its dimensional stability.

Anwar Alam
Case Reports in Clinical Medicine (CRCM) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/crcm.2013.25087
Abstract: The trousseau’s sign is carpopedal spasm that results from ischemia that is induced by pressure applied to the upper arm. It is a sensitive and specific sign of hypocalcemia. Here the author is sending the short case summary, images of the demonstration of the Trousseau’s sign. This case also had a cluster of seizures induced by hypocalcemia.
Complete mitochondrial genome of Bugula neritina (Bryozoa, Gymnolaemata, Cheilostomata): phylogenetic position of Bryozoa and phylogeny of lophophorates within the Lophotrochozoa
Kuem Jang, Ui Hwang
BMC Genomics , 2009, DOI: 10.1186/1471-2164-10-167
Abstract: The complete mitochondrial genome (15,433 bp) of Bugula neritina (Bryozoa, Gymnolaemata, Cheilostomata), one of the most widely distributed cheliostome bryozoans, is sequenced. This second bryozoan mitochondrial genome contains the set of 37 components generally observed in other metazoans, differing from that of F. hispida (Bryozoa, Gymnolaemata, Ctenostomata), which has only 36 components with loss of tRNAser(ucn) genes. The B. neritina mitochondrial genome possesses 27 multiple noncoding regions. The gene order is more similar to those of the two remaining lophophorate phyla (Brachiopoda and Phoronida) and a chiton Katharina tunicate than to that of F. hispida. Phylogenetic analyses based on the nucleotide sequences or amino acid residues of 12 protein-coding genes showed consistently that, within the Lophotrochozoa, the monophyly of the bryozoan class Gymnolaemata (B. neritina and F. hispida) was strongly supported and the bryozoan clade was grouped with brachiopods. Echiura appeared as a subtaxon of Annelida, and Entoprocta as a sister taxon of Phoronida. The clade of Bryozoa + Brachiopoda was clustered with either the clade of Annelida-Echiura or that of Phoronida + Entoprocta.This study presents the complete mitochondrial genome of a cheliostome bryozoan, B. neritina. The phylogenetic analyses suggest a close relationship between Bryozoa and Brachiopoda within the Lophotrochozoa. However, the sister group of Bryozoa + Brachiopoda is still ambiguous, although it has some attractions with Annelida-Echiura or Phoronida + Entoprocta. If the latter is a true phylogeny, lophophorate monophyly including Entoprocta is supported. Consequently, the present results imply that Brachiozoa (= Brachiopoda + Phoronida) and the recently-resurrected Bryozoa concept comprising Ectoprocta and Entoprocta may be refuted.Bryozoans (ectoprocts), also known as "moss animals", are aquatic organisms that mostly live in colonies of interconnected individuals. They usually encrust rocky
Spectrophotometric determination of nitrate in vegetables using phenol
UI Gaya, S Alimi
Journal of Applied Sciences and Environmental Management , 2006,
Abstract: A rapid and sensitive spectrophotometric method for the determination of nitrate in vegetables is described. The method is based on the measurement of the absorbance of yellow sodium nitrophenoxide formed via the reaction of phenol with the vegetable-based nitrate in presence of sulphuric acid. The analytical concentration of the acid has marked effect on the nitrate determined. The colour development was rapid and remained stable overnight. Analysis of six vegetable samples containing nitrate gave satisfactory mean recoveries of 76 to 123% in 18 determinations. The proposed method is reproducible and sensitive to lower level concentrations. Journal of Applied Sciences and Environmental Management Vol. 10(1) 2006: 79-82
Between the “Spheres of Justice” and the “Right to Citizenship”: The Limits of the Communitarian Theory of Michael Walzer
Viorel ?u?ui
Meta : Research in Hermeneutics, Phenomenology and Practical Philosophy , 2011,
Abstract: In this paper I present and analyze the communitarian theory of Michael Walzer regarding the difference between the spheres of social justice. From this theoretical perspective, Walzer argues that the distribution of citizenship should be open to those categories of foreigners, such as refugees or guest workers that inhabit the territory of a political community. I underline the fact that this theory of “potential citizenship” is not compatible with the communitarian theory mentioned above. In the final section of the paper I suggest that a solution for maintaining the potential citizenship thesis is to offer a weaker reading of the communitarian thesis, according to which the acceptance of some principles of distribution should be based on the fact that a justification would be available for the belief that those principles are likely to be the right ones.

Inhibition of Toxic Effects of Viper and Cobra Venom by Indian Medicinal Plants  [PDF]
M. I. Alam
Pharmacology & Pharmacy (PP) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/pp.2014.58093

The mortality rate from snakebites in West Bengal is very high and most of the deaths are caused by the Daboia russelli and Naja naja envenomation. Twenty-three plants from the seventeen families were collected from the traditional healers and explored for the first time for antisnake venom activity. In our previous report, the methanolic root extract of the Indian medicinal plants Pluchea indica, Hemidesmus indicus, Vitex negundo and Emblica officinalis significantly neutralized the Viper and Cobra venom-induced pathophysiological changes [1][2]. In the present study, we explored four plant extracts (Curcuma aromatica, Aristolochia indica, Androgrphis paniculata and Curcuma zeodaria) for the antisnake venom activity. The plant extracts significantly antagonized Daboia russelli, Echis carinatus

Tsunami Impacts on Nuclear Power Plants along Western Coast of India Due to a Great Makran Earthquake: A Numerical Simulation Approach  [PDF]
Mohd Zuhair, Shahnawaz Alam
International Journal of Geosciences (IJG) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/ijg.2017.812083
The major seismicity source in the northern Arabian Sea is the Makran Subduction Zone (MSZ) that defines the tectonic boundary between the Arabian plate and the Eurasian plate, located offshore Iran and Pakistan over which an instrumentally registered earthquake (Mw 8.1) generated a tsunami on 27 November, 1945. It has caused severe cataclysm to a vulnerable population along the surrounding coastlines, including India. It has been on a long seismic quiescence since this last event. The population and industrialization have exponentially increased along the coastal areas in last half decade. The highly exposed coastal locations to the tsunamis are the areas where the nuclear power plants are located. In the present work, a numerical simulation of a great tsunamigenic earthquake (M 9) is presented that predicts the generation, propagation, run-up and travel time using TUNAMI N2 for estimating tsunami impacts along the nuclear power plants of the western coast of India. TUNAMI N2 code was designed for shallow water wave equations, which uses the finite-difference method based on staggered-leap frog scheme. Thus, it has potential to simulate a far-field tsunami with much more accuracy than other methods. It is observed that the tsunami will strike along the coast of Jaitapur Nuclear Power Plant (Maharashtra), Tarapur Nuclear Power Plant (Maharashtra), Kaiga Nuclear Power Plant (Karnataka) and Mithi-Virdi Nuclear Power Plant (Gujarat) after 210, 215, 225 and 230 minutes, respectively. Results show that the tsunami run-up is highest for Jaitapur coast (2.32 m). The Mithi-Virdi coast is the least effected (0.93 m) while Kaiga (2.15 m) and Tarapur coast (2.12 m) might have faced quite intense tsunami consequences. The arrival times and run-ups of the tsunami along the coast of different power plants have been calculated since these parameters are of vital importance in mitigation of the coastal hazard, evacuation planning and installation of early warning system in order to save the inhabited communities from the disaster.
Enforcement of Intellectual Property Rights in Bangladesh: To What Extent Is It TRIPS-Responsive?  [PDF]
Mohammad Aktarul Alam Chowdhury
Beijing Law Review (BLR) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/blr.2018.93026
Abstract: In recent times with the adoption of TRIPS we observe that enforcement of Intellectual Property Rights (IPRs) has emerged as a pressing issue on the global economy, and in the national and international intellectual property agenda. Particularly, whilst the WTO definitely promotes big IP exporters, scholars are tremendously worried about TRIPS “one size fit all” attitude that ultimately disregards the heterogeneity of the world’s populace and the exertions that threatens developing and least developed countries. The big and vital challenge facing by the developing country like Bangladesh today is how to cope with the mounting number of demands from intellectual property rights-holder, national and foreign, to upgrade their system for the enforcement of IPRs. And the effort of Bangladesh, in this respect, is not totally insignificant, for as a WTO family member Bangladesh imperatively needs to make it its IP regime TRIPS-responsive by 2021 starting from 1 July 2013. In this environment, this paper seeks to address briefly how the intellectual property rights are enforced in Bangladesh and to what extent the IPRs implementation and enforcement mechanism in Bangladesh is TRIPS-compliant. Finally this paper tries to put some recommendations to meet the WTO obligations using the TRIPS flexibilities.
