Journal of the Institute of Engineering , 2009, DOI: 10.3126/jie.v7i1.2071
Abstract: The study measured the extent of importance, desired and existing level of competences of seven proposed outcome statements related to specialized project works in Bachelor's Degree in Mechanical Engineering. A structured questionnaire was distributed to three groups of respondents namely employers, graduates, and teachers associated to mechanical engineering. Collected data were analyzed with the help of SPSS technology. The findings showed that all seven outcome statements were very important in the profession indicating the need of the fulfilment of higher level of competencies in these areas by engineering education. On the opposite the study showed significant differences between the mean values of desired and existing level of competences indicating the desire of additional efforts to improve the quality of engineering education.

Housewives' Self-esteem and their Husbands' Success: A Comparative Study among the Various Caste Groups in Pokhareli Women
Deepak Raj Paudel
Himalayan Journal of Sociology and Anthropology , 2010, DOI: 10.3126/hjsa.v4i0.4668
Abstract: This paper examines the relationship between self esteem of housewives with respect to some selected socioeconomic variables, namely; marital status, husband’s income, husband’s occupation, husband’s physical attraction, women’s own intelligence and women’s physical attraction with a sample of 240 Pokherli married women. The study compares whether the self-esteem of women and other different factors is different among the various caste groups. A comparison is also made between professional women and housewives. Self-esteem of women is signiicantly different among the various caste groups with the highest in Magar and Gurung women. Professional women are more conscious than housewives in all aspects of husband’s success. This study tests the common assertion that women, having reasonably higher income housewives experience their husbands’ success. Husbands’ success does positively affect a housewife’s self esteem, but only indirectly, through its effect on perceived marital success. Only husband’s income has a direct positive effect on self esteem, while other successes of the husband actually lower her self esteem. Since marriage is traditionally a basis for a woman’s identity, successful marriage increases her feelings of worth. However, the speciic role arrangements may reduce her feelings of personal competence.

Keshab Raj Paudel
Asian Journal of Medical Sciences , 2011, DOI: 10.3126/ajms.v2i3.4530
Abstract: Objective: This study was set to obtain the critical appraisal of the graduating nursing students on pharmacology lectures and to compare the students’ view on teaching effectiveness and pharmacology course content at two different colleges, Kathmandu Medical College (KMC) and B P Koirala Institute of Health Sciences (BPKIHS), in Nepal. Materials and methods: Forty B Sc Nursing students studying at two colleges of twenty each at the end of the first year were?? enrolled in this study. Structured teaching evaluation questionnaire containing 13 close-ended items and two open-ended questions was used. Three items were intended to evaluate pharmacology course content and other ten items to evaluate the teaching effectiveness. Open-ended questions were incorporated to collect the students frank and open views that provided flexibility and reliability. Students were instructed not to disclose their identity in any form so as to obtain genuine, valid and frank responses. Yates corrected Chi square test was applied whenever necessary and P value considered significant at less than or equal to 0.05. Results: On majority of the students’ (60-90%) view existing pharmacology course content was ‘just right and useful’ and no?significant difference between two college students’ view exists. Majority of students both at Kathmandu Medical College (KMC) and B P Koirala Institute of Health Sciences (BPKIHS) found the ‘clarity of voice (KMC-55%, BPKIHS-70%) and audibility (KMC-70%, BPKIHS-80%)’ to be ‘fair’. More students at KMC (60%) found the ‘student’s participation’ during lecture than students at BPKIHS (35%). Thirty five? percent of students at KMC felt that pace of the lectures was ‘about right’ whereas 100% BPKIHS students found the same and the difference was significant (P=0.00005). Almost all the students both at KMC (95%) and BPKIHS (100%) preferred the liquid crystal display (LCD) mode of presentation has been over head projector (OHP) or board and marker methods. Majority of the?? students at the both colleges opined that the number of lectures allotted to pharmacology is less. Additionally, from students’?perspective, more student-teacher interactions, class assessments and explanation of the subject matter with clinical correlation are necessary for better understanding of the subject. Conclusion: No major significant differences except pace of the lecture exist in the teaching methodology and pharmacology course content between the two colleges though there are insignificant differences. Students at the both colleges
Word Sense Disambiguation using Clue Words
Udaya Raj Dhungana,Subarna Shakya
Journal of the Institute of Engineering , 2014, DOI: 10.3126/jie.v10i1.10900
Abstract: ?This paper presents a new model to disambiguate the correct sense of polysemy word based on the related context words for each different sense of the polysemy word. The related context words for each sense are referred to as clue words for the sense. The WordNet organises nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs together into sets of synonyms called synsets each expressing a different concept. In contrast to the structure of WordNet, we developed a model that organizes the different senses of polysemy words based on the clue words. These clue words for each sense of a polysemy word are used to disambiguate the correct meaning of the polysemy word in the given context using any WSD algorithm. The clue word for a sense of a polysemy word may be a noun, verb, adjective or adverb.

Nepal Orthopaedic Association Journal , 2013, DOI: 10.3126/noaj.v3i1.9323
Abstract: Open fractures of the pelvis are rare and potentially lethal injuries with mortality rate ranging from 30 % to 50 %. Subcutaneous surgical emphysema over the pelvis in open pelvis fracture has been reported in literature but generalized surgical emphysema in open pelvis fracture has not been reported previously. We present and discuss here a case of 24 years old man who had sustained Road traffic accident resulting in multiple fractures and developed generalized surgical emphysema.

Word Sense Disambiguation using WSD specific Wordnet of Polysemy Words
Udaya Raj Dhungana,Subarna Shakya,Kabita Baral,Bharat Sharma
Computer Science , 2014,
Abstract: This paper presents a new model of WordNet that is used to disambiguate the correct sense of polysemy word based on the clue words. The related words for each sense of a polysemy word as well as single sense word are referred to as the clue words. The conventional WordNet organizes nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs together into sets of synonyms called synsets each expressing a different concept. In contrast to the structure of WordNet, we developed a new model of WordNet that organizes the different senses of polysemy words as well as the single sense words based on the clue words. These clue words for each sense of a polysemy word as well as for single sense word are used to disambiguate the correct meaning of the polysemy word in the given context using knowledge based Word Sense Disambiguation (WSD) algorithms. The clue word can be a noun, verb, adjective or adverb.
