Abstract: Signal and imaging investigations are currently a basic step of the diagnostic, prognostic and follow-up processes of heart diseases. Besides, the need of a more efficient, cost-effective and personalized care has lead nowadays to a renaissance of clinical decision support systems (CDSS). The purpose of this paper is to present an effective way to achieve a high-level integration of signal and image processing methods in the general process of care, by means of a clinical decision support system, and to discuss the advantages of such an approach. Among several heart diseases, we treat heart failure, that for its complexity highlights best the benefits of this integration. Architectural details of the related components of the CDSS are pro-vided with special attention to their seamless integration in the general IT infrastructure. In particular, significant and suitably designed image and signal processing algorithms are introduced to objectively and reliably evaluate important features that, in collaboration with the CDSS, can facilitate decisional problems in the heart failure domain. Further-more, additional signal and image processing tools enrich the model base of the CDSS.

Abstract: SrRuO3 is a 4d itinerant ferromagnet. Thin films of SrRuO3 on SrTiO3 substrate have Curie temperature of ~150 K and are characterized by extremely large uniaxial anisotropy (Hanis ~ 10 T) with the easy axis at 45 relative to the film normal. We explore local magnetization reversal events in this system by measuring the extraordinary Hall effect in micron-size patterns. With this technique we follow distinct magnetization events and can detect flipping of less than 1% of the probed area which for our samples amounts to ~2 107 spins.

Abstract: Snail control is one of the most important tools in the campaign to reduce fascioliasis. Bait formulation using a strong attractant is of the important methods to control snail populations. The present study identifies certain amino acids namely arginine, proline, tryptophan, serine, citrulline, asparagine, glycine, cysteine, glutamine, glutamic acid, aspartic acid, alanine and ornithine for preparing such baits. These were tested on Indoplanorbis exustus, an intermediate host of digenean trematodes Fasciola hepatica and Fasciola gigantica. Significant variation in behavioural responses was observed in the snail even when all these amino acids were used in 50 mM concentration. In the present study proline emerged as the strongest attractant for Indoplanorbis exustus.

Abstract: The present investigation deals with a study of In-vitro seed germination and protocorm formation of an endangered medicinal orchid Vanda tessellata by using four different media. Immature seeds obtained from green pods were successfully germinated on four basal media (BM), Kn C, VW, MS and RT without various combinations of growth hormones. The protocorm development was hastened up with the minimum period required for the onset of germination on defined medium. The seed germination was assessed at up to 65% on KnC, 40% on VW, 95% on MS and 30% on RT whereas protocorm formation was assessed at up to 50% on KnC, 37% on VW, 90%on MS and 20% on RT. Highest seed germination (95%) and protocorm formation (90%) were achieved in MS medium.

Abstract: Tetanus is a fatal infectious disease that affects both human and animals; it was known that the causative organism is Clostridiumtetani which is gram positive, anaerobic bacteria. Tetanus is a wound infection disease that is usually accompanied by a fatal toxemia. Tetanus toxin was inoculated into hens to get hyper immuneIgY, the titer was 1320 Limit of flocculation (Lf-eq) after 72 days and the titration was approved by Ramon flocculation test and single radial immuno-diffusion test. IgY was evaluated experimentally in donkeys as prophylactic and therapeutic medication. IgY could protect donkeys from 1 minimum lethal dose (MLD) ofClostridiumtetanibacteria through passive immunization before and after infection. A dose of 4500 Limit of flocculation (Lf-eq) IgY was 100% protective as a prophylactic dose for a donkey of around100 Kg body weight challenged with 1 minimum lethal dose (MLD) ofClostridiumtetanibacteria. While a dose of 30000 Limit of flocculation (Lf-eq) IgY intramuscularly two times daily for 2 injections, with 9500 Limit of flocculation (Lf-eq) IgYintrathecally (in subarachnoid space through atlanto-occipital space)was 100% curative for a donkey of around100 Kg body weight challenged with 1 minimum lethal dose (MLD) of Clostridiumtetanibacteria. Furthermore, IgY was evaluated experimentally in comparison with IgG in mice. IgY has equally efficacy to IgG in prophylaxis and treatment of tetanus. Thus this trend in tetanus treatment is effective and competitive to IgG treatment.

Abstract: Marketers are interested in exploring customers’ perceptions, because they want to assess unmet needs; delight needs and even secret needs of their potential customers. SMS advertising is a simple, easily manageable mode of communication. Due to its cost effectiveness, it has gained more popularity. Proper target audience selection, compatible message with easy language at appropriate timing and persuasiveness are the key for success. This research work was specifically intended to find the customers’ perceptions regarding the SMS and SMS advertising, so that the firms can evolve their strategies according to the existing needs of the customers. It is imperative that any strategy formulated according to the customers’ needs will be successful in the future.

Abstract: We have shown the feasibility of UWB radar to detect involuntary head motions in the sub-mm range, demonstrating the feasibility of interfacing a MR scanner with an external UWB radar based motion tracking system. It is well known that simultaneous intracranial oscillation also occur, induced by respiration and myocardial contraction. Hence, it is only consequent to ask whether these oscillations are detectable by UWB radar.

Abstract: Determining the real value of natural ecosystems, due to their significant function and ecosystem services and necessity of the best management for make use of them has a great importance. According gly, in this study, using analytical – descriptive and analytical - Causal model is an attempt to recreational value of the forest park of Plangan estimating the willingness to pay for the benefits of the parkis determined with conditional valuation method using distributed 452 questionnaires area Neyriz. To measure the willingness to pay of the legit model is used.Based on the maximum likelihood method, the model parameters will be estimated and the impact of each of the considered variables in the model will be calculated and analyzed. The results show the people education is higher, indeed Increases their tendency to pay. Income Variable also has a significant positive association with willingness to pay. This means that the higher the income level exceeds their willingness to pay is too high. Household variable has significant negative relationship with willingness to pay.Number of visits Forest Park variable shows a significant negative correlation and this means that the more times a month to visit the park by people is increase, they are less willing to pay the entry fee.

Abstract: Environmental biotechnology is a broad field encompassing diverse disciplines of natural sciences and engineering. The progresses in research are occurring at a rapid pace, and applications that have broad implications socially, economically and ecologically are emerging. Along with remarkable settlement, environmental consequences that affect core quality-of-life issues for present and future generations are materializing. With the aim of achieve the use of organisms, cells, parts thereof and molecular analogues for products and services to clean our surroundings. The environmental impacts of aquaculture, crop growing, genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and even pharmaceuticals are elevating public concerns and demonstrate the need for guidance from a variety of social, economic and scientific disciplines to insure the benefits. The pollution of the environment has become a major global concern due to rapid growth of industrialization, urbanization, modern agricultural development and energy generation which have exploited natural resources for fulfilling the human desires and needs, resulted in disturbing the ecological balance on which the quality of environment depends. Technological innovations and advancements in products and processes in industries have given rise to new products and new pollutants in abundant level which have self cleaning capacity of the environment. At present there are different horizons of this technology including nanotechnology, these are discussed in this review with brief history of environmental biotechnology.
