Impact of macroeconomic uncertainities and political risks on the pattern of fdi in the developing world: An empirical evidence from african, asian and latin american economies
Dr. Sarmita Guha Ray

While recent times have witnessed a surge of foreign direct investment (FDI) inflows into the developing world, these inflows remain below optimal levels. By using data on African, Asian, and Latin American economies this study attempts to investigate the role of political risk and macroeconomic uncertainty stemming from the foreign exchange market as determinants of the patterns of FDI. Moreover, given the low share of FDI going into African economies, this study focuses special attention...

Performance analysis of reconfigurable communication system based on diversity and spatial multiplexing
Poongodi, C., Renuga Devi, M. and Sasireka, N.

In mobile communication environment, the wireless channel is time varying due to the mobility of the wireless terminal and multi-path propagation. To provide wide area network coverage at true broadband data rates, both WiMAX and future versions of 3GPP must adopt Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) and Adaptive Antenna Systems (AAS) technologies. So an algorithm for reconfigurable communication system based on both MIMO and AAS is proposed. In the proposed algorithm, either MIMO or AAS...

The influence of the additional usage of L-arginine on the factors of vasodilation and the clinical data, complicated with cardiac decompensation with reduced and preserved fracture of the left ventricle that patients with stable coronary heart disease ha
Denesyuk, V. and Muzyka, N.

Introduction: The endothelial dysfunction is one of the most difficult forms of vascular malformation. The dominant ferment, that provides the synthesis NO in the blood-making stream, is the endothelial NO-synthase, that is produced on the endothelium and plays an important role in the basic level NO support (Erdei et al., 2014; Cwynar et al., 2015). It is proved that the reduction of the activity еNOS leads to the decrement NO production and is one of the key elements of pathogenesis...

Computational analysis of catalyst light-off temperature in exhaust system of an IC engine
Vijaygouda M. Hiregoudar, Srivatsa S and Praveenkumar B. S.

Catalytic converter of an engine becomes operational at a temperature of around 200 to 225˚C. During cold conditions engine components take more time to warm up, similarly the catalytic converter also takes more than usual time to reach light-off temperature, which means exhaust gases will escape untreated. In these situations the placement of the catalytic converter plays an important role, i.e. if it is placed too near to head of exhaust, time required to reach light-off temperature will...

Implant backtracking- a valuable tool in forensic identification – An advanced radiological study
Saraswathi Gopal, K., Naveen Kumar.B and HarshaVardhan, B.G.

Introduction: Scientific Advancements come as a boon to mankind. Mishaps bring doom. In mass disasters such as aircraft crashes or bomb blasts where there is gross mutilation of bodies, there has always been a search for the ideal clue which can help in individual identification. There is a demand that the remains be high temperature resistant and can directly point out to the individual without too much hassles. This retrospective study investigates one such valuable evidence- Implants...

Total reduction of leakage power through combined effect of sleep stack and variable body biasing technique

Leakage power consumption has become a major concern for VLSI circuit designers. Leakage power will become dominant by the year 2020 as per the report of ITRS. I propose the new approach, named sleepy stack with variable body biasing (SSVBB), which reduces the leakage current thereby saving the state of art. It uses traditional sleep transistors which are placed parallel to PMOS/NMOS between the pull up/pull down device and VDD/GND. Dual Vth can be also be applied to reduce sub threshold...

The copepod occurrence throughout the study period indicates organic pollution in the lake.

Pyrexia of unknown origin responding to antidepressant therapy: A case report
VijendraNath Jha and ShambhawiRoy

The subjective complaint of raised body temperature is a common observation in outpatient clinic, though prevalence data to support the fact is lacking. Some studies have reported this phenomenon to be related to psychological stress, but still it remains less recognized and poorly understood. These patients thus have to undergo several investigations and treatment with minimal improvement and at times being questioned on the veracity of such complaints. This case highlights the plight of...

Cross layer umpiring system design in wireless mobile ad hoc networks
Kirubakaran, N. and Dr. Kathirvel, A.

A wireless mobile ad hoc network is a dynamic wireless network with the engagement of cooperative nodes with a infrastructure less networks. Multicasting routing is intended for group communication that supports the dissemination of information from a sender to all the receivers in a group. Problems in ad hoc networks are the scarcity of bandwidth, short lifetime of the nodes due to power constraints, dynamic topology caused by the mobility of nodes. We would like to provide solution for the...

Examining the state of public schools in the gas flaring areas of Nigeria
OgbondaUche Joyce and ErikBichard

The Niger Delta region produces over 82.8% of the natural gas that is associated with oil production in Nigeria. Due to economic and political reasons, this gas is not retained for energy use. Instead, it is burned off in the air. The pollution caused by these flares creates many environmental, social and economic impacts on the building fabric of public schools and the health of the users of such buildings in the vicinity of oil fields. Current architecture and building materials used to...

Behavior of 3d RC frames with varying proportion of opening in masonry infills subjected to dynamic loading
Jayaramappa, N. and Arunkumar Sagar

Masonry Infills, which generally have high stiffness and strength, play a crucial role in reinforced concrete frame buildings during earthquakes but these are normally considered as non-structural elements and their stiffness contributions are generally ignored in practice, such an approach can lead to an unsafe design. The Masonry infill (MI) though constructed as secondary elements behaves as a constituent part of the structural system and determines the overall behaviour of the structure...

A fifteen year review summarizing effects of conventional and organic farming systems on soils, nutrition, environment, economics and yields (1981- 1995)
Jeff Moyer, Kris Nichols and Vijay Bhosekar

The principal assumptions to the proposition that organic agriculture could contribute significantly to the global food supply are, low yields and insufficient quantities of organically acceptable fertilizers. A critical 15 year review on both the issues studied showed that, organic yields were comparable to conventional practices after a transition period (~ 5 years). The review also indicated that global food supply could be grown organically on the current agricultural land base....
