Term prom: active versus expectant management
Janhavi Mukkharya and Dr. Inamdar

Background: Premature rupture of membranes (PROM) refers to the loss of integrity of membranes before onset of labor, with resulting leakage of amniotic fluid and establishment of communication between the amniotic cavity and the endocervical canal and vagina. Premature rupture of membranes (PROM) complicates 5-10 % of pregnancies. Approximately 60-70 % of term PROM cases are followed by the onset of labor within 24 hours. Diagnosis and proper management is very important. In spite of many...

The effectiveness of call technology for improving pronunciation among efl students in schools in Saudi Arabia

This paper discusses the potential benefits of employing Computer Assisted Language Learning (CALL) for improving the pronunciation of English as a Foreign Language students in Saudi Arabia. The paper starts with a review of the available literature. It then goes on to examine two main aspects related to the use of CALL, namely whether using CALL is effective for developing clear pronunciation and what students feel about using this type of computer program for second language learning. The...

Dominance is more justified than abundance to calculate importance value index (IVI) of plant species
Bhadra, A.K. and Pattanayak, S.K.

Abundance and dominance are two aspects of the plant species diversity dynamics, often considered interchangeably together with frequency and density to estimate Importance Value Index (IVI). The weightage of the use of abundance or dominance for IVI has been explored through a study of abundance-dominance directed species dynamics on the Gandhamardan hill of western Odisha in the altitudinal range 340-960m. In total 232 plant species were documented. Large number of species have higher...

Detection and removal of high density salt and pepper noise from images
Sathya Jose, S.L. and Dr. Sivaraman, K.

Noise is any unwanted component in an image. It is important to eliminate noise in the images before some subsequent processing, such as edge detection, image segmentation and object recognition. This work mainly concentrates on automatic detection and efficient removal of impulse (salt and pepper) noise. For automatic detection of impulse noise, a method based on probability density function is proposed. The basic idea of automatic detection is that the difference between the probabilities...

Detection and removal of impulse noise for cattle identification using fuzzy methods
Anusha Edwin and Jerrin Thomas Panachakel

Muzzle patterns of cattle are uneven features of their skin surface. They are different from each other like finger prints of human. Hence these muzzle patterns can be used to identify cattle. Noise is any unwanted component in an image. It is important to eliminate noise in the images before some sub-sequent processing such as edge detection, image segmentation and pattern recognition. This paper proposes a method for salt and pepper noise removal based on mathematical methods using fuzzy...

Synthesis and biological activities of analogs of aryl tetralone
Chaitramallu, M., Devaraju kesagodu, Dakshayini chandra shekarachar and Dr. Ranjini

The aryl tetralone as potential antimitotic agents were synthesized in four step reactions using Grignard reagent. The first step is the synthesis of trimethoxy phenyl naphthol (2a-f) by the reaction of substituted tetralone with 3, 4, 5-trimethoxy 1-bromobenzene in magnesium metal using tetrahydrofuran as a solvent. The resulted phenyl naphthol was hydrogenated to give phenyl tetralin 3(a-f). The substituted phenyl tetralone were prepared by the oxidation of trimethoxy phenyl tetralin 4(a-f...

Formulation and quality characteristics of mocktail squash
Sandhya, P.S., Akshaya, S. and Usha Ravi

The current study is aimed at formulating a mocktail squash and to assess its physico-chemical and sensory characteristics. The squash was formulated using watermelon and pineapple. Fresh watermelon and pineapple juice were extracted. The fruit juices were mixed in the ratio of 3:2. Squash was formulated from juice, sugar and distilled water in the ratio 1:1.5:1. The formulated squash was evaluated on its physico chemical properties like pH, titratable acidity, reducing sugars and total...

Formulation of chocolate icecream using germinated brown rice milk
Anjana, R., Mahalaxmi, S., Sandhya, P.S. and Lakshmypriya, S.

Ice cream is a frozen dessert usually made from dairy products Brown rice milk is a useful dairy substitute. During the process of germination, Gama Amino Butyric Acid (GABA) levels and the amount of important nutrients like calcium, fibre and potassium have been known to increase. The study aimed at formulating Germinated Brown Rice (GBR) milk ice cream as a non-dairy substitute, to be consumed by the people who are lactose intolerant and those who are allergic to soy. The GBR ice cream...

Beneficial effect of organic fertilizers on the yield characters, microbial dynamics and soil nutrient status
Tensingh Baliah, N., Andal Priya, S. and Priya, C.

The application of organic fertilizers had a positive effect on yield characters such as number of flower buds, number of fruits and length of fruits in Okra. The results revealed that flower formation was higher in plants amended with organic manure followed by Farmyard manure (FYM). The fruit length and fruit weight were significantly increased with the soil amended with vermicompost. The fruit weight was directly correlated with the harvest index of okra. The organic fertilizers...

A study on intertidal rocky shore fauna in Burmanella, South Andaman
Priyanka Devi, Revathi, K., Senthil Kumari, S. and Subashini, A.

The Andaman & Nicobar coast constitute various ecological habitats that support large groups of marine organisms. These habitats help to unravel the faunal similarities and special features in the faunal composition among regions and habitats examined. The faunal diversity on the rocky shores is generally governed by the tides. The animals on the rocky shore undergo stress due to changing environmental factors. In the present study an attempt was made to study the distribution of marine...
