Competent Smart Car Parking: An OSGi Approach
Kaushik Gopalan,K. Sairam,R. Nandakrishnan,Veeramuthu Venkatesh
Journal of Artificial Intelligence , 2013,
Abstract: In cosmopolitan expanses, parking of vehicles has become a major problem as it is becoming unproductive. It is also one of the key causes of city traffic congestion. A mechanism is needed to monitor the parking area. Other associated issues such as lighting of large parking lots and tracking availability of parking spots need to be addressed. The proposed study discussed these issues and gave a solution by employing Open Source Gate Initiative (OSGi), a middleware that helps in efficient communication. The parking system discussed here integrates various communication standards such as the SMS features of a standardized mobile, ZigBee enabled proximity sensors and a system meant for storage and processing of the data. The proposed architecture eliminates the hassles of searching empty parking spots and thus can save a lot of time on a daily basis for the general public who own and use a vehicle for commuting. The merits of this study compared with the existing models are emphasized here. This study also highlighted the advantages of using a standardized middleware such as OSGi for the communication between sensors and a system meant for the storage and processing of the obtained data.
The Impact of Firm Size on Dividend Behaviour: A Study With Reference to Corporate Firms across Industries in India
Azhagaiah Ramachandran,Veeramuthu Packkirisamy
Managing Global Transitions , 2010,
Abstract: The objective of this paper is to examine the association between the Corporate Leverage (CL) and the Dividend Policy (DP) of firms across industries in India in respect of Size of Corporate Firms. The investigation is conducted on a panel sample of 73 firms across industries [Cement, Chemical and Fertilizer, IT, Oil and Gas, Pharmaceutical, Shipping, and Textiles], which listed their shares in National Stock Exchange (NSE) in India for the period 1996–2007. The impacts of Capital Structure (CS) variables (leverage) on DP measures – dividend payout (Net dividend paid/net income) in the presence of some basic fundamental variables are considered to be the determinants of DP, using the Multiple Regression Technique (OLS method). The results of the cross-sectional ols Model for the selected sample firms under various sectors show that there is a significant effect of selected independent variables. Therefore, this study proves that the DP of Small Size, Medium Size, Large Size, and Overall Corporate Firms across industries in India is dependent on the level of debt in CS.
smart application for AMS using Face Recognition
MuthuKalyani. K,VeeraMuthu. A
Computer Science , 2013,
Abstract: Attendance Management System (AMS) can be made into smarter way by using face recognition technique, where we use a CCTV camera to be fixed at the entry point of a classroom, which automatically captures the image of the person and checks the observed image with the face database using android enhanced smart phone. It is typically used for two purposes. Firstly, marking attendance for student by comparing the face images produced recently and secondly, recognition of human who are strange to the environment i.e. an unauthorized person For verification of image, a newly emerging trend 3D Face Recognition is used which claims to provide more accuracy in matching the image databases and has an ability to recognize a subject at different view angles.
Recurrent Giant Cell Tumor of the Distal End Radius: A Case Report and Surgical Treatment with Wide Resection and Reconstruction with Non-Vascularised Autologous Proximal Fibular Graft  [PDF]
Venkatesh Gupta, Vijaya Kumar
Open Journal of Orthopedics (OJO) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ojo.2014.411045
Abstract: Giant cell tumour of the distal radius is the 3rd most common site after proximal tibia and distal femur. It is locally aggressive and is associated with a high rate of recurrence. Although it is usually treated with various modalities of treatment, wide resection and reconstruction with proximal fibular autograft is most commonly accepted in recurrent cases. The following is a case report of such a case with surgical management.

BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine , 2006, DOI: 10.1186/1472-6882-6-35
Abstract: Plants were collected from Palni hills of Southern Western Ghats and the ethnobotanical data were gathered from traditional healers who inhabit the study area. The hexane and methanol extracts were obtained by cold percolation method and the antimicrobial activity was found using paper disc diffusion method. All microorganisms were obtained from Christian Medical College, Vellore, Tamil Nadu, India.The results indicated that out of 18 plants, 10 plants exhibited antimicrobial activity against one or more of the tested microorganisms at three different concentrations of 1.25, 2.5 and 5 mg/disc. Among the plants tested, Acalypha fruticosa, Peltophorum pterocarpum, Toddalia asiatica,Cassia auriculata, Punica granatum and Syzygium lineare were most active. The highest antifungal activity was exhibited by methanol extract of Peltophorum pterocarpum and Punica granatum against Candida albicans.This study evaluated the antimicrobial activity of the some ethnomedicinal plants used in folkloric medicine. Compared to hexane extract, methanol extract showed significant activity against tested organisms. This study also showed that Toddalia asiatica, Syzygium lineare, Acalypha fruticosa and Peltophorum pterocarpum could be potential sources of new antimicrobial agents.According to World Health Organization (WHO) more than 80% of the world's population relies on traditional medicine for their primary healthcare needs. Use of herbal medicines in Asia represents a long history of human interactions with the environment. Plants used for traditional medicine contain a wide range of substances that can be used to treat chronic as well as infectious diseases. A vast knowledge of how to use the plants against different illnesses may be expected to have accumulated in areas where the use of plants is still of great importance [1]. The medicinal value of plants lies in some chemical substances that produce a definite physiological action on the human body. The most important of these bio
A Review on IELTS Writing Test, Its Test Results and Inter Rater Reliability
Veeramuthu a/l Veerappan,Tajularipin Sulaiman
Theory and Practice in Language Studies , 2012, DOI: 10.4304/tpls.2.1.138-143
Abstract: This research paper is based on the Academic Modules of IELTS test. A study is conducted to evaluate the performance of IELTS test takers and to analyze inter rater reliability in evaluating the test. The test is held at a private university and there are 9 participants who are the students of Foundation, Diploma and Degree courses were assessed only on writing component. This test is rated by three different raters to observe inter rater reliability in evaluating the test. The findings show that rating is not reliable and there is less agreement between the raters as different raters awarded different marks for the students. The total accumulated marks are 588 out of maximum 900 marks and the average score of these 9 students are 65.3% and falls under band 6. Since the IELTS test uses holistic marking, the raters find that the scoring rubrics are too vague in defining the qualities of writing. This study proposes analytic scoring system as a better procedure in assessing IELTS test, whereby it uses separate scales to assess different aspects of writing rather than a single score. The inter rater reliability issue can be overcome if test providers are able to furnish grading scales that could clearly equate the total marks achieved by a candidate to an appropriate band. The result and discussion from this study cannot be generalized to all IELTS candidates as there are many limitations in this study such as student preparedness, tester marking experience, time constraint, and reliability of the test and the validity of the marks tabulation method.

Advances in Environmental Sciences , 2012,
Abstract: The results of the present study describe observations about the distribution of the intertidal polychaete Onuphis eremita along sandyshore of Tranquebar coast, southeast India. The samplings were collected from three different water levels during one year. In sandy shores thebeach worms were crowded. The tidal exposure and percentage composition of sediment particles and organic matter were the main factors influencingthe animal abundance. Highest density was 15.66/m2 in low water mark (LWM) in summer and lowest density occurred during monsoon(4/m2) at high water mark (HWM). The larger animals (32.6 cm) were collected at low water mark and smallest animals (9.2 cm) at midwater mark levels. The environmental parameters showed significant variation with respect to the polychaete distribution. In general the lowwater mark level harbored a larger range of size and number of individuals than the mid water mark and high water mark levels. In addition,these worms had got importance in this region due to their use as bait for more common edible fishes like Sea boss, Groupers, Siver Sillago,Snappers, Rabbitfish and other smaller carangids.

Journal of Modern Physics (JMP) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/jmp.2013.411181

The co-doped ceria-based materials with general composition formula Ce0.8-xYxSm0.2O2-δ (x = 0, 0.02, 0.04, 0.06) were prepared through the sol-gel method. The single phase of the prepared materials was confirmed by X-ray diffraction (XRD). The lattice parameters were determined by least square fitting of UNIT CELL programme. The linear variation of lattice parameter with concentration of Y into the samarium doped ceria (SDC) indicates the validity of Vegard’s law. The crystallite size of the samples obtained by using of Scherrer formula is in the range from 34 nm to 49 nm. The thermal expansion studies were carried out by using dilatometric technique in the temperature range from room temperature to 1000°C. It was observed that the thermal expansion increased linearly with increasing temperature for all the samples. The electrical conductivity was studied using impedance spectroscopy. It was observed that the composition Ce0.74Y0.06Sm0.2O2-

Stewart's Textbook of Acid-Base, 2nd edition
Bala Venkatesh
Critical Care , 2009, DOI: 10.1186/cc7906
Abstract: Retaining Stewart's original masterly work represents one of the highlights of the book. In the new section, the coverage is broad, and certain chapters such as those on intracellular [H], buffers, and the use of the Stewart model at the bedside are exceedingly well written. The chapters on the Stewart approach during pregnancy and a review of comparative animal physiology are useful additions.However, criticisms can be made. Important errors of fact have slipped through the proofreading process, along with some controversial assertions. To illustrate:Table 13.1: The normal plasma ionized calcium concentration is reported as 1 mEq/L, which is equivalent to 0.5 mmol/L. The normal plasma ionized calcium concentration ranges from 1.1 to 1.3 mmol/L. Similarly, the generic intracellular fluid (ICF) calcium concentration is reported as 35 mEq/L, which is equivalent to 17.5 mmol/L. This is exceedingly high. The intracellular [Ca] is of the order of nanomoles per litre.Table 21.1: The strong ion difference (SID) of gelofusine is reported as 30, whereas the correct value is 34 (manufacturer's data).Table 28.2: The SID of 5% albumin is reported as 0. The SID of 4% albumin is 12. The SID of 5% albumin is unlikely to be 0, which would result in a highly acidic solution.Section 27.4: It is suggested that elevated lactate from catecholamines results from increased Krebs cycle activity. It is actually due to accelerated glycolysis. In this section, it is also suggested that reliance on base excess as a resuscitation target in patients receiving catecholamines may lead to an inappropriate diagnosis of hypoperfusion, as base deficits can result purely from catecholamine-induced hyperlactatemia. Similar errors can result from the use of strong ion gap (SIG) (when lactate is not included in the calculation). Finally, it is asserted that standard base excess (SBE) is unstable as partial pressure of carbon dioxide (PCO2) changes. SBE, unlike actual base excess (ABE), is extremely stable
