The government of Bangladesh tries to provide free healthcare services locally through community clinics, satellite clinics, Union Health & Family Welfare Center (UH&FWC), etc. But all these facilities still unable to fulfill the local demand. So, people visit private medical institutions to receive proper treatment. They need to pay for each unit of private healthcare services. The study considered eight UH&FWC in rural areas and eight private clinics in urban areas from 8 districts of Bangladesh. We accumulated the various categories of cost-related data of these facilities e.g. physicians and other staff's salary, hospital rent and other equipment costs, etc. and also the number of patients treated by each facility each month. Thus, we estimated the per month cost of producing each unit of outpatient services. The cost of producing per unit outpatient services differed from facilities to facilities. The cost in the UH&FWC ranged from BDT 178 ($2.09) to BDT 197 ($2.32). At the same time, this cost in the private clinic was BDT 87 ($1.02) to BDT 92 ($1.08). The health care cost between public and private health facilities altered due to the variation in cost and utilization of services from these health facilities. However, private health facilities are more efficient than public health facilities. If we would like to reduce the cost of public health facilities, we must ensure transparency in the facilities.

The pharmaceutical market in Bangladesh is highly concentrated and the top 10% of the company covered 70% of the market share. In this competitive market, pharmaceutical companies adopt aggressive marketing strategies to achieve greater market share, which sometimes crosses the limit. Every company employs medical representatives to survive and expand their share in this competitive market. This higher competition leads the pharmaceutical companies to be aggressive in promoting their drugs by hook or crook. The medical representatives adopt various strategies and make the physicians unethically prescribe extra medicines, antibiotics, and unnecessary drugs. Eventually, that burdens the patients with extra healthcare costs. The study was conducted using qualitative data. An interview-based research design was followed to collect data from healthcare providers, physicians, and medical representatives to explore the promotional strategy of the pharmaceutical companies. Healthcare providers, physicians and medical representatives from Dhaka, Gazipur and Magura districts participated in the face to face in-depth interviews (IDI). Their provided data was used to understand the marketing strategy and how it influences the relevant sectors. The health sector in Bangladesh is highly structured where the pharmaceutical companies play an important role to fulfill the drug demand of the people at the home and abroad as well as store foreign currency by exporting drugs. Sometimes, the unethical practices of the physicians and pharmaceutical companies increase the health care expenditure. The medical representatives of a company play a key role to create aggressive marketing which increases the health care expenditure. The physicians prescribe inappropriately through the influence of medical representatives, which transfer the patient’s family to catastrophic health expenditure.

Location-based services are now extremely prevalent due to their massive usage in current and emerging technologies. The use of simulation tools has been gaining popularity in the domain of LBS systems, where researchers take advantage of simulators for evaluating the behavior and performance of new architecture design. This popularity results from the availability of various powerful and sophisticated LBS simulators that are continuously verifying the flexibility of proposed models of LBS research projects. Despite its popularity worldwide, there is still a problem for researchers to choose the best simulator according to their needs and requirements, which provide them accurate results. Furthermore, conducting research on the physical LBS environment for individuals or small educational institutes is very challenging due to the cost involved in setting up location-based services live. Therefore, for selecting an appropriate LBS simulator, it is important to have knowledge of simulators that are currently available along with their features and selection criteria considered for conducting research in a particular type of problems in the LBS system. In the current study, we have presented various simulators that provide a cost-effective way of conducting LBS research projects. This paper compares 10 simulators to help researchers and developers for selecting the most appropriate simulation tool depending on selection criteria. Moreover, a detailed discussion with the recommendation for best practice in LBS simulation tools is also included in this paper, which would surely help new researchers to quickly identify the most suitable simulator according to their research problem.

The proliferation of data and availability of open source tools has simplified the diagnosis of diseases such as CKD (Chronic Kidney Disease). As one of the types of kidney disease which results in malfunctioning of kidney, it is paramount to effectively diagnose such diseases to prevent degeneration of vital organs in the body. Despite the advancements in the field of medical imaging, there exists no permanent cure for CKD, but the risk can be mitigated to a larger extent if detected at the early stage. This paper proposes a hybrid approach to early detection of chronic kidney disease by using Naďve Bayes classifier and eGFR (estimated Glomerular Filtration Rate). Naďve Bayes which works on the principle of conditional probability was used to predict whether a patient has CKD or not based on clinical symptoms, and the stage was determined using the eGFR formula. Results were promising as the model was able to predict the prevalence of CKD as well as the stage in which the patient was in. Although we were able to develop a web-based application using machine learning algorithms to aid in the diagnosis of CKD by serving as a “self-diagnostic” tool for medical practitioners, improvements could be made to ensure that the model works according to established ground truth by nephrologists.

Free space optics is one of the emerging technology of optical wireless communication which refers to propagation of light beams through atmosphere for broadband communication. It is a promising alternative solution for RF network, as it provides stable data transmission and highest data rates. However performance of this system could be prominently degraded due to various atmospheric conditions that may lead to increase in bit error rate and affect link sustainability. This paper presents analysis of proposed FSO system with comparative study of different modulation techniques under weak turbulence at 1550 nm wavelength in terms of BER and Q factor so as to mitigate adverse effects and improve efficiency.

Ischemic Heart Disease is a death-defying cardiovascular disease that disrupts the circulation of blood owing to plaques such as fats, cholesterol, calcium, and other substances resident in the blood, which coagulates hence narrowing the arteries. The symptoms of this disease are angina, sweating, nausea, breathlessness, heart attack, vomiting, pains of back, jaw, shoulder, arm, back, and neck, just to name but a couple. According to World Health Organization, the leading cause of death which has caused over 17 million untimely deaths of patients since 2015 to date especially individuals below the age of 70 years is Ischemic Heart disease which is a form of Cardiovascular Disease; where 81% of these recorded deaths occurring in individuals in respective of sex, particularly in low and middle-income countries of Sub-Sahara Africa. Nevertheless, in the recent past, a couple of systems have been developed to detect this non-transmittable ailment. Yet, they delivered a ton of bogus negative during testing and could not distinguish Ischemic Heart Disease given its covering symptoms it imparts to other Cardiovascular Diseases. Consequently, there was the need to proffer a solution for the issue of under-diagnosis and misdiagnosis of Ischemic Heart Disease, which is much uncontrolled in Sub-Sahara Africa. Hence, in this paper, we proposed and built up a model to predict Ischemic Heart Disease and Cardiovascular diseases using an AI technique called Bayesian Belief Network. The model was structured using Bayes Server and tested with data retrieved from the UCI Machine Learning Repository. The model had an overall prediction exactness of 99.99%; 98.86% and 99.66% sensitivity of Ischemic Heart Disease and Cardiovascular Diseases correspondingly.

Nowadays, most transactions take place online, which means that credit cards and other online payment systems are involved. This method is convenient for the company and the customer. The digital age seems to have provided some very useful features that have changed the way businesses and consumers interact, but for a charge. “Credit card fraud” outlays the card industry literally billions of dollars a year. Financial institutions are constantly striving to improve fraud detection systems, but at the same time, fraudsters are finding new ways to break into systems. Preventing and detecting “Credit card fraud” has become an emergency. Data mining techniques can be very useful in detecting financial fraud, as large and complex financial data processing poses major challenges for financial institutions. In recent years, several studies have used machine learning and data mining techniques to combat this problem. The main aim of this paper is to implement the performance of the machine learning based classifiers on Credit card fraud detection dataset.

With the recent advancement in the Deep Learning algorithm, its application has been broadened over various fields ranging from big data analytics to human biometric systems. One such field where it takes up the hand is the implementation of various application like FaceApp, FakeApp etc. that is used in the generation of manipulated media files which is termed as Deepfake. These application has a wider increase in its popularity among common public due to its user friendly features and are used in various domains like Digital Fraud, Cyber Crimes, Politics and in even in Military Activities. So, it is very much important to develop some kind of detection techniques that can take away this kind of forgeries and put up a new step in video and audio forensics. In this paper, we present the various creation and detection techniques that is up now in research in Deepfake using various techniques like Convolutional Neural Network (CNN), Recurrent Neural Network (RNN), Long Short Term Memory (LSTM) etc. and thus provide a backbone in the implementation of a new scheme that would be more compactable and accurate in the detection of Deepfakes. Also we done a comparison study on various techniques under traditional and state of the art approach and brought up a conclusion that most of the techniques under traditional approach are time consuming process, need expertise knowledge over the technology for the user to use them etc. where as in the case of state of the art approach, the techniques require less time for processing and anyone with less knowledge over the technology can use this technologies for the creation and detection of Deepfake.

This paper presents reviews of the authors for the use of construction and demolished waste of building in concrete as recycled coarse aggregates. It is observed that from many years ago that the peoples of rural areas shifted from villages/small towns to developed city centers. Due to this huge number of migration of peoples creates problems accommodations and their basic needs. For the solution of accommodation and other problems demolish old structures and construction will shift from horizontal to vertical space such as: high rise building. However, demolition of old structures creates many issues and for the solution those issues on and only the better option of reused of Construction & Demolition waste as in green concrete. The views of the several authors and construction industry are the utilization by consuming it in new concrete in various ways. Replacement of fine aggregates, coarse aggregates and even cement has been attempted. Green concrete is produced by replacing natural coarse aggregates in 50% dosage with coarse aggregates obtained from demolished old concrete which was suggested by the several authors. Use of recycled in concrete has not much effect on the basic properties (specific gravity, water absorption, unit weight and density) of Recycled coarse aggregates comparison with natural coarse aggregates. Therefore, the use of this waste in new concrete not only helps in reducing the waste management issues but also help to protect the environment greatly.

The impact of these pandemic situations is economy of the country, education of the country and increased the Poverty in the country. To reduce the impact of this pandemic situation on education, online education system was introduced. That’s why government take the step towards of online classes of universities students to save the education without wasting time of students. Pakistan government also announce the channel for students to teach the students of 1st to 12th standards students from 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM at home without any difficulty. The main objective of research this is to find out the online tools used in teaching and learning process during lock-down. At the university level teachers in higher education institutes used different tools such as: Google class, Email, WhatsApp group, Facebook group, Zoom, MS Office 360, YouTube channel, Recorded PowerPoint presentation, laptop screen recorder and X-recorder for mobile screen to fulfil the task of online classes and also get the few percent of results from students.

Intensive care unit is an area which creates fear and worries in client and relatives while nurses working in this area undergo stress to overcome, this there is a need for the nurse to understand the importance of communication in an Intensive care Unit . Communication skills are relatively poorly developed among critical care nurses compared to nurses in wards.1
Objective- It was to enhance communication between the nurse and client by assessing the effectiveness of Standard Operating Protocol on practices of nurses regarding communication with the clients and relatives in intensive care unit at selected hospitals in the state of Maharashtra as there were no protocols existing in the intensive care unit for nurses.
Method and Statistical analysis- A descriptive evaluative approach, Pre experimental time series one group pretest post-test design was used. Total of 220 nurses selected by purposive sampling technique. Tools were Standard Operating Protocols. Teaching Module, An observation checklists with socio-demographic data. Observation technique was used to observe the practices. Data were analyzed using both descriptive and inferential statistics. The result of the study showed. There was a significant association of educational qualification with post-test-1 observational practices as p = < 0.0001. There was no association with observed practice score and socio-demographic data during pretest and posttest- 2. In Communication with client Area of nonverbal communication improved from 41% to 91%. Reassurance and comfort also increased from 41% to 84%. Communication with client’s relatives enhanced from 43% to 93% in the majority as an aspect of the checklist.

Background/Objectives: The main objective of the project is to avoid various security threats and network attacks by detecting malicious Uniform Resource Locator(URL) based on the keyword text classification.
Methods/Statistical analysis: A semi-supervised technique, naive Bayes classification is proposed to locate malicious URL by text classification phenomena. The probabilities of the predicted and the exact values are calculated, and it results with high probability. With more accuracy, the malignant URL is predicted. A page rank algorithm is used to detect the blacklist which contains the URLs that are already noted as spam, malware or phishing URL.
Findings: With the persistent improvement of Web assaults, many web applications have been languishing from different types of security dangers and system assaults. The security identification of URLs has consistently been the focal point of Web security. One of the main sources of attacks is via malicious URLs; the attackers may send embedding executable codes or injects malicious codes through these URLs. Thus, it is important to improve the unwavering quality and security of web applications by precisely identifying malignant URLs. The utilization of profound figuring out how to group URLs to recognize Web guests' aims has significant hypothetical and scientific values for Web security investigate, giving new plans to canny security discovery.

Searching for relevant information becomes very difficult and sometimes we don’t find the exact information what we are actually seeking, so it results in time-consuming and repeating the same web page without knowingly. A system which will know our needs, requirements, preferences and patterns. This will retrieve the correct information and helps in fast processing. In this work, it is proposed that the personalized search engine for information retrieval system using the client-server module for user preferred information through intelligent search and storing the searched result in a database for further accessing of information is implemented. For information retrieval, a framework known as scrappy is used for retrieving all the user needed information by specifying the URL of that data. The fetched information is stored in the database. It helps in offline browsing, full-text search in the database and fast response and no repeating of web pages.

IC overproduction and design theft have been a concern in recent decades for the revenue loss of digital design companies. Logic encryption is a well-known approach to address this problem by locking the functionality of digital designs. In logic encryption techniques, key-gates are added to the design whose functionality is to lock (or obfuscate) the operation of the circuit. Correct functionality is achieved by applying a correct key, which is only known to the IC designer, to these key-gates. The key-gates, however, may incur a considerable overhead to the area and performance of the design. In this paper, a new technique based on simple inverter cells is proposed, which can provide the required locking functionality with low overhead. The results on a set of ISCAS’89 benchmarks reveal that the proposed approach incurs about 2% to 19% area overhead, which is less than any other technique, as well as low power overhead.

Automatic Identification System is designed to prevent water automobiles like ships and corvettes from colliding, by allowing them to know the exact location of ships at sea which has a danger of Collision over the track of vessel. AIS is the discrete method used by all Sailors for exchanging their co-ordinates using SOTDMA for collision avoidance over the track. This paper discusses AIS message transmission and Reception and how it can be used for realizing traffic control in Maritime. In this paper, we show how GMSK Modulation and NRZI encoding techniques can be used for transmission of a signal from AIS Transmitter in Satellite to the receiver in the ground station. The ground station thus will have an extensive database of such received AIS Messages which are decoded at ground station end system level.

When we talk one to one that is called human language that is called plain text or normal text. When we talk in normal text or plain text, then all human can understand this text or language easily. That is why we create a cryptography security system to convert this plain text to cipher text. In this security system, we use both number and English alphabet for encryption and decryption the text to hide the plain text. In this security system encryption is mainly depend upon the key generation. The main goal of this security system is to convert simple message or text to non-readable text to secure the messages from hackers; this is called decryption. In this project, at first we find the ASCII value and binary value of the number and alphabet then after all calculation of this value we find the encrypted value and using this value we find decrypted value. In this project, we use RSA and DES and Cryptography for doing encryption and decryption. Moreover, use the ASCII number. In improvement, we complete the whole key generation and encryption and decryption process, which will take linear time.
Both Symmetric and Asymmetric key, Prime Number, English Alphabet, Cryptography.

In today's world, the trolleys are used in most places like a shopping mall, hospitals, colleges, etc., and everything is manually operated using their physical strength. This paper proposes an automated human following trolley using the image and video processing. The HSV value of the image taken from the camera will be calculated. If it matches the valid sticker's value, then the trolley will follow that person who has a specific sticker by maintaining a constant distance from that person. The distance estimation technique is used to calculate the distance between the user and the trolley. Background subtraction algorithm is used for recognition and detection purposes. The basic model of the following human trolley was designed, and it was tested under various lighting conditions and verified the correctness of background subtraction by keeping invalid stickers. The designed model was confined with a boundary like hospitals and shopping malls. The same approach with some improvements could be used in other fields like schools and colleges, libraries, agricultural fields, war fields, etc.
Video processing, HSV, background subtraction, distance estimation.

Brain cancer has rapidly occurred in many medical arenas. The tumour pandemic dangerously infects the health and well-being of the natural population. In this proposed pathway, Fuzzification with the Picture enhancement approach has acted. The clicked Picture contains noises of brain cancer that cannot directly proceed for diagnosis. The clicked Picture includes a sound of dizzy and blurred Pictures. However, the objective of this paper to overcome this problem and to get a high-level picture from aggregated panoramic with image processing methodology. For extracting Pictures, the division has acted to split up the clicked values to samples. Fuzzification targets the infected areas of brain cells for better classification. But, before dividing, extraction has to performed to remove out the noises of Picture. It has performed with train data set and a highly accurate Picture. It has performed using a neighbour equality algorithm classifier. This methodology helps clinical doctors to get the best prediction. The motive of this system is to put improvisation of the effectivity of the classifier and also the efficiency. According to this method can reduce the (N.R.) negative right rate. The findings of the paper are that now clinical doctors can get some help about detection, and also we have improved the image processing system with straightforward methodology.

Background: Guaranteeing food profitability is a significant issue for creating nations like India, where more than 33% of the individuals is live in neediness. To estimate cost, there is no system in place to advise farmers what crops to grow. Hence, this paper explains the attempt to predict crop price that a farmer can obtain from his land by analyzing patterns in past data.
Methods/Statistical analysis: This method makes use of several data such as rainfall, temperature, market prices, and past yield of a crop. The supervised machine learning algorithm, namely, the Decision tree algorithm and analyse the data and predict for the new set of data, is implemented. It also predicts the price and the gain for the next twelve months over the past twelve months and gives the time series analysis of the same.
Findings: The proposed model is developed to help farmers make better decisions concerning which crop is most suitable during his desired time of sowing and the location. This System predicts the yield and price of the crop of choice, giving the farmer useful information well before starting the process of cultivation.
Improvements: The System can introduce and make available climate-aware cognitive farming techniques and identifying systems of crop monitoring, early warning on pest/disease outbreak based on advanced AI innovation.

Background: In this age of technology, online business is playing a vital role in the growth of the economy of the business. Hence, people need feedback on various products, technologies, businesses, etc. Since their opinions are the input for an individual to evaluate and adapt them. Therefore, the Review system is playing a vital role in decision making. So there arises a necessity to evaluate the reviews as well since the business units are trying to generate fake reviews to identify more clients for their products.
Methods/ Statistical Analysis: In this paper, we implement two machine learning algorithms SVM and Naďve Bayes algorithm and analyse the data and predict for the new set of data. We also compare the performance of both algorithms.
Findings: In this paper, we are trying to develop a Machine learning model which analyses the reviews on various factors and obtain the necessary features and classify the reviews as a fake or non-fake review. This helps in identifying fraudulent reviews and predicts the trustworthiness of the reviews in the future.
Improvements: The system can introduce and make available Machine learning techniques and identifying fake reviews at the earliest stage.

This research work is completed to embrace the project work on rehabilitation and retrofitting of fireside damaged concrete buildings. This study explains the rehab process of fireside damaged concrete buildings in three basic categories; condition evaluation, higher cognitive process, rehabilitation & retrofitting. Evaluation method of damaged building has been based upon understanding of fabric properties at elevated temperatures, condition survey and condition assessment. Condition survey includes visual inspection, hammering and chiselling techniques whereas condition assessment includes both non-destructive and destructive tests that are selected upon the premise of efficiency, economy, and performance. Feasibility study is required to form right decisions for the rehab of fireside damaged building. Such a feasibility study should include all important aspects which will have a control within the future, therefore must be considered in higher cognitive process. The method and testing procedures can be used to evaluate the level of damage and feasibility of repair needed. The evaluation can be used to whether to repair or to demolish the structure

The Increase in the level of pollution, global warming, and the effect of greenhouse gases resulted in an urgent need of sustainable green building technology. The methodology adopted is to spread awareness among the entity about green buildings and save cost for them for a long term. In this various case studies are thoroughly studied along with which a site is selected, than the overall quantity estimation is done, than from the market studies cost analysis is prepared and we compare a new green building with the traditional building. We found that the developed nations like U.S.A, U.K, and Russia had already made certain rules and regulations regarding eco-friendly development and the developing nations like India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh are trying to achieve a sustainable development. This paper shows the need of green building as a sustainable development all over the globe especially in developing countries. This case study selects a residential house which is constructed as per the green structure norms in the state of Haryana in India. As India is the second largest populated nation in the world with its 68.84% of total population living in villages (according to 2011 census of India).This paper helps villagers of India to construct and implement simple, sustainable and economic techniques for construction of their residential houses which also results in developing India rapidly.

It also elicits information about an alternative e-learning strategy which is perhaps the only option left after an official call for social distancing. The research was initially undertaken to find out the pedagogic relevance of virtual learning as a novel teaching strategy. Hence it is essential to mention that King Abdul-Aziz university-Jeddah has been utilizing technology and e-learning/blended learning technique for around 11 years.
Method of the study
The study is qualitative-descriptive. Data collected through an adapted questionnaire was qualitatively analysed to achieve the research objectives. The sample was taken from a government university in Saudi Arabia.
Findings & Conclusions
The results show that many students think distance or e-learning was a good experience. However, they felt a lot other personal, pedagogic and technical issues. All of them agreed that distance learning as a mode of education could be both useful and innovative, yet it poses many challenges during successful implementation for achievement of objectives.
Based on the findings the researcher recommends that distance learning can be made more relevant, effective and quality - oriented if teachers are well trained, students are motivated and administration is supportive.

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a death-defying respiratory tract ailment that causes trouble in breathing which deteriorates after some time. COPD is an umbrella term used to order the amalgamation of Chronic Bronchitis and Emphysema. The manifestations of this infection are frequent coughing, fatigue, sweating, breathlessness, tiredness, weight loss, wheezing, fast heart rate, fast breathing and chest tightness just to name not many. This malady is pervasive with individuals whose age ranges from 30 or more and afterward arrives at its top in patients over 50. Because of the covering manifestations this malady imparts to other respiratory tract illnesses; it is in some cases under-analyzed and misdiagnosed a circumstance which is much uncontrolled in Sub-Sahara Africa. In time past, COPD has caused a large number of deaths overall yearly because of absence of early determination of the illness. In ongoing past, a few frameworks have been created to analyze this non-transmittable malady, yet they produced a ton of bogus negative during testing and couldn't identify COPD because of its covering side effects it imparts to other respiratory tract illnesses. Consequently, in this paper, we proposed and developed a model to foresee COPD utilizing an AI procedure called Bayesian Belief Network. The model was structured utilizing Bayes Server and tested with data gathered from COPD medical repository. The model had a general expectation precision of 99.98%; 99.79%, 95.91% and 98.39% sensitivity of COPD, Chronic Bronchitis and Emphysema in that order.

In today's world, security is the most significant concern. We produce tons of data that must be unbroken secure. Be it our data or data associated with a transnational company. The data can be protected with the usage of authentication and authorization. Authentication and authorization help to verify and validate a user's identification. Applications in today's society are swaying towards IoT concepts as this delivers them agility, competency, conventionality, and future-proof. However, this winds up into a higher security risk. The projected system proposes a multi-factor authentication methodology or, in simple terms, presents a 3-way authentication. This constitutes the well-known authentication levels that are the password and OTP but mainly focuses on the third step signifying the most protected method of authentication that's the challenge-response pair mechanism. The generated challenge is exclusive to each user, and therefore, the gadget.

Background/Objectives: This paper presents how to maintain family responsibilities and their careers successfully. Working women in daily life faced many challenges. To identify the problems among family responsibilities and their careers.
Methods/Statistical analysis: In this paper sample data is 120 to be used to get the appropriate results. SPSS tools used to convert the information in statics data. Demographic of respondents and Descriptive statistics used to reach the results. And the study of all factors impacts on respondents to maintain a balance between family responsibility and their careers. Correlation shows between family responsibility and growth in careers. Collection of data respondents are working in the academic sector.
Findings: In this paper, we found its fact a working woman faced many problems to maintain the balance between their professions and care for their families. So in this paper, all issues describe how to female managed the family responsibilities and job stability with growth. It's very critical situations handled by them. Many problems and challenges suffered by female faculty in the education sector. That's why behind the reason some time women quit their jobs. The workplace is seen as men's space and engaging of women is taken as lack of regard. Regardless, this technique is rapidly advancing now, and cash related similarity as other social components have not quite recently extended the number of working women in all circles of life, yet what's more, have improved the value of their non-conventional duty towards society. Sometimes women faced unhealthy jokes on women at the workplace. The main reason of behind these issues as unformulated manners unhelpful concepts in the effective atmosphere, nonappearance of beliefs, deception group effort, is deficient in leaning along with the consumption of an assortment of dialects, stringent ethnicity and convictions etc.
Improvements/Applications: In future perspectives study the male also faces these types' problems in their lives. Family responsibilities also make a barrier in their career growth. Male and female has the same family responsibilities, problems and issues faced in their lives.

The developing country is facing this unprecedented disease called COVID-19. Ever since its conception in the area of Wuhan, it is rapidly spreading and creating respiratory disorders not only to humans but also to other species as well, resulting in common colds to further critical conditions, for instance, MERS (Middle-Eastern-Respiratory Syndrome) and SARS (Severe-Acute-Respiratory-Syndrome). Among the identified measures, regular hand-washing, and maintaining social (physical) distance consistent with expert recommendations, the most straightforward available choice to manage the extend of COVID-19. Currently, developing countries have a low health care workforce. Crowded uses of public transportation, lack of sanitation, hiding suspected cases, lack of personal protective equipment for health care providers, and immune-compromised presence make a significant impact.

This paper proposes a method for the surveillance in the vicinity of the armed forces where there is exposure to intruders/prosecutor throughout. The Video Surveillance Robot is designed in such a way using the IoT (Internet of Things) it can give an overview of the operations all over. The armed forces require 24×7 vigilance, which is not feasible for human because of invasion of the intruders, which is extensive at times. In earlier days, the robots were composed with an unreliable approach that it had several limitations comparably of expenditure, magnitude, confidentiality, connection and manual surveillance. So, the wireless Video Surveillance Robot plays an essential role in armed forces and becomes a helping hand to the military personnel. The Video Surveillance Robot provides continuous live video streaming of the area on a Webpage or mobile phone with the help of a web camera. And the pi camera captures the images of circumstances and simultaneously uploads them on the Cloud. The ultrasonic sensors detect the obstacle in the lead and find the most extended pathway for continuous supervision. The exclusive Video Surveillance system is implemented on Raspberry Pi3, which includes the Raspbian Operating System, and it operates with the language Python to write a program for numerous segments for the robotic system.

This paper introduces an iterative technique to segmentation of indoor floor from a single 2-D camera connected to a mobile robot. The segmentation of the floor is an essential function for efficient mobile robot navigation, unlike previous approaches which rely on geometric indications, edges etc. Mobile robot mounted with the 2-D camera can capture floors images over long indoor sequences. Both floor and non-floor regions are all of a similar color when the conditions of illumination vary over a single image. The texture of the floor varies over a single image, and features may be lost as lighting changes. As mobile robot rotates, lot of information may be lost in the presence of small obstacles. Some floor areas are very shining under the artificial light condition. The radiant floor gives the wrong segmentation output. In the proposed approach does not require multiple images. The floor patterns are dynamically selected in the proposed research, and segmentation is performed based on the chosen designs. Camera calibration is not required in the proposed approach for floor segmentation. Also, edge cues and geometric cues are not necessary. The extensive experiment is conducted on a broad set of real indoor corridor floor image set.

With the rapid advancement in technological innovation, block Chain has become one of the hottest transformative techniques in the internet domain in recent times. As considered to be a decentralized, distributed and highly encrypted technology in data transfer, the blockchain has restored the trust for secured business transactions by the sophisticated cryptographic algorithm. Here the protocol validates that all nodes are merely synchronized with one another, thus providing security, anonymity, and data integrity without the requirement of any other third party intrusion. Block chain technology which is also known as DLT (Distributed Ledger Technology) that is a great platform for non-physical money transaction such as bitcoin and other online crypto currencies. It is seen as emerging foundational security-based technology having enormous potential across different sectors. Blockchain as a decentralized mode useful for a peer-to-peer network without the essential of any central or controlling authority server. This will, in general, reduce transaction costs, improved security, and execute the financial transaction in real-time. Block chain is significant and not the same as of now existing techniques. Since it empowers disseminated, independent decreases grating in business exchanges with safety and shares decentralized records, this paper gives a discussion on the comparative analysis of block chain technology with other existing technologies.

International trade has been considered as an engine of economic growth since very long. India has also been involved in trading terms with the world in fact in order to enhance its trading terms, India has adopted economic reforms in 1991 in the form of liberalization, Globalization and Privatization .India’s major trading partners are China, USA, UAE, Germany, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Oman .But here we are confined to the study of trade between India and UAE. India is having good trading terms with UAE since 1972 that is from the establishment of UAE.UAE has remained important source for India not only for imports and exports but for remittances also. In this study we have tried to analyze trade intensity index for India with respect to UAE. Study period has been taken from 2001 to 2016.We have found that India’s export intensity index (wrt) UAE, was highest in 2001 estimated as 12.5 while lowest in the year 2010.Then import intensity index highest in 2010 and lowest in 2002.Besides that we have also discussed the composition of trade between the two countries.

The paper elucidates about the proper utilization of plastic materials in civil construction projects. The volume of plastic waste is increased, which results in creating unbalance in the environment by polluting land, air as well as water. According to CPCB (central pollution control board), India generates almost 26,000tonnes of plastic per day. From 26,000tonnes near about 10,000 tonnes a day, the plastic waste remains uncollected, and that plastic ends up in the natural environment mostly in seas. A vast amount of plastic waste is brought from tourist attraction regions, which further burnt and finally leads to toxic gasses that are harmful to even living beings. To outcome from this problem, the use of plastic should be controlled, and plastic waste should be utilized properly so that it does not create pollution. Nowadays, such waste material utilized in a different type of road construction and in other civil construction, which shows the hope of tackling this issue. In brick blocks, carry bags, disposable, PET, HDPE, and PE are used with sand to obtain high strength. These days, plastic waste used as a modifier, which further helps in a reduction in the volume of cement and results as a decrease in the overall cost required to complete the construction work. The plastic helps to raise the melting point for bitumen. Even moisture will not seep from brick due to the presence of plastic, which increases the working periods before any repairs of the building.

In this paper we developed a new dimensionality reduction method, named Biomimetic Uncorrelated Locality Discriminate Projection (BULDP), for face recognition. It is based on unsupervised discriminate projection and two human bionic characteristics: principle of homology continuity and principle of heterogeneous similarity. With these two human bionic characteristics, we propose a novel adjacency coefficient representation, which does not only capture the category information between different samples, but also reflects the continuity between similar samples and the similarity between different samples. By applying this new adjacency coefficient into the unsupervised discriminant projection, it can be shown that we can transform the original data space into an uncorrelated discriminant subspace. A detailed solution of the proposed BULDP is given based on singular value decomposition. Moreover, we also develop a nonlinear version of our BULDP using kernel functions for nonlinear dimensionality reduction. The performance of the proposed algorithms is evaluated and compared with the state-of-the-art methods on four public benchmarks for face recognition. Experimental results show that the proposed BULDP method and its nonlinear version achieve much competitive recognition performance..

The creation of a 3-D model of indoor environments is increasingly gaining more importance due to the wide variety of applications. Applications are the representation of building, indoor facilities information representation, etc. This paper represents an approach to create visually persuasive 3-D models of indoor corridor based on the mobile robot that is connected to a single 2-D camera. The sequence of images acquired from the 2-D camera and distance between surrounding and the robot is determined. In this paper, the new approach for distance estimation between the wall and the robot is proposed. Distance estimation is achieved using skirting height as a reference. The panoramic stitching of images generates the walls of the indoor corridor. Doors in the corridor are identified using an edge-based approach. The proposed approach is tested for real datasets and getting visually effective results. The proposed approach is intended to address navigation in complex buildings.

In the modern world, people are beliving videos as part of social communication; as camera editing techniques are advanced, video doctoring is a technique for editing and recreating new details in the footage. Identifying these doctored videos poses a problem for the media source, the court of law, and the framework of evidence service. The research on video forensics, and specifically on the automatic recognition of object-based detection of video forgery, is still in its infancy. The approach proposed in this paper uses noise properties, extracted from each frame of the video using Wavelet Transform and nonlinear thresholding such as optimal SURE shrinkage. Gaussian Mixture Density (GMD) uses this as a Gaussian classifier, and the Expectation-Maxima algorithm sets the GMD parameter. Results of the output matrix show that we get excellent precision 99.36 percent recall 99.80 and precision 97.34 percent respectively for object removal and frame duplication detection compared to subsisting methods. The proposed approach effectively detects traces in the forensic video dataset and recognizes these.

The overall objective of this research was to determine the feasibility of wellhead power plants for a sustainable supply of geothermal electricity. Technical, financial and environmental sustainability and feasibility were investigated. A profitability assessment model showed that the payback period based on profit after Tax is 4.4 and 3.4 years without corporate tax which demonstrates financial feasibility. Environmental challenges encountered include corrosive geothermal fluid contamination and emissions of no condensable gases. Technically, it was found out that wellhead plants have lower power plant availability and capacity factor but still acceptable since it is over 70% compared to over 95% for central power plants. Lack of reinjection wells, however, raise concerns over sustainability of resource use in the long term. The study concluded that the Eburru and Olkaria wellhead power plants in Kenya are technically, financially and environmentally sustainable and feasible. Financial viability can be enhanced by tax rebates and holidays while re-injection of geothermal fluid can enhance resource sustainability. The research showed that wellhead power plants make an investment in geothermal less risky and ensure quick returns though technically the central power plants are superior.

In today's world advancement of data transmission over the unsecured channel and data is not secure. In this scenario, data should be in encrypted form and that data transmitted over the network. In cryptography, have two methods to encrypt data are substitution and Transposition. Transposition is referring to changing the position of a character in the given text. On the other hand, Substitution is referring to replacing the character with another character in the given text. Play fair cipher is based on polyalphabetic substitution cipher; classical play fair cipher has a 5*5 matrix. To increase the security of play fair cipher, this paper presents a new approach to introducing double encryption in the sender side and double decryption in the receiver side approach by vigenere cipher, play fair cipher, and linear congruently method.

Beta thalassemia is one of the most common genetic disorders worldwide with a defect in haemoglobin synthesis including Myanmar. This study was conducted to determine the proportion of high school students who have heterozygous ?-thalassaemia including Hb E and different types of common beta globin gene mutations by multiplex polymerase chain reaction. This community-based cross-sectional descriptive study was done in Myanmar adolescents in 2017. A total 290 apparently healthy high school students in which male 140 (48.3%) and female 150 (51.7%) studying in Basic Education High School, Anisakhan, Pyin Oo Lwin Township, Mandalay District, Myanmar were involved. Thalassaemia screening tests were done by combined NESTROFT/DCIP precipitation and confirmed test was done by Isoelectric Focusing (IEF). PCR- based genetic confirmatory by using mutant genes IVS 1-1, CD 41/42, IVS 1-5, CD 17, and nt-28. Total 131 cases (131/290, 45.2%) were positive with either of the two screening tests. These cases were considered as thalassaemia trait (carrier) and/or haemoglobin E carrier. Isoelectric focusing was done to find Hb E by which 45 cases (45/131, 34.3%) were found to have Hb E carrier. Remaining 86 cases were further run multiplex- PCR to detect beta thalassaemia carrier. Total 44 out of 86 cases were ?-thalassaemia traits (25 CD 41/42 (-TCTT), 13 IVS 1-5 (G-C), 1 IVS 1-1 (G-T); 5 compound heterozygous (IVS 1-5(G-C) /CD 41/42 (-TCTT)). CD 17 (A-T) and nt 28 (A-G) mutations were not detected in this study. NESTROFT screening test has 87% sensitivity and 82% sensitivity for the detection of Hb E carrier and ?-thalassaemia carrier respectively. DCIP screening test has 67.1% sensitivity and 68% sensitivity for the Hb E carrier and ?-thalassaemia carriers respectively. Combined both screening tests have 100% sensitivity for the detection of Hb E and ?-thalassaemia carriers. This study has highlighted that both screening tests should be used for population screening of thalassaemia and haemoglobinopathies in Myanmar.
