Nov-Dec,2015, Vol - 3/21, Page - 1108/1117

Administrative discretion is need and inclusive growth is the purpose. It must be the slogan and aim of every country. Administrative discretion can become curse for the country if it transform in arbitrariness. Administrative discretion is useless if it unsuccessful to get the inclusive growth. Mostly countries had adopted the concept of welfare state. To fulfill this purpose administration had required for some discretion. Administrative discretion is a means to get the aim of welfare state. India also had adopted the welfare concept. So the power of administrative discretion had also conferred for administrative officers. Administrative discretion was given to get the inclusive growth. I want to say through my paper that administrative discretion and inclusive growth both are going to parallel in India. There are many problems in sits way e.i. corruption, misbehavior, negligence and arbitrariness. Professor Dicey thought that administrative discretion is against Equality, and it becomes the cause of arbitrariness, discrimination and unjust so the purpose of inclusive growth may be fail. Key Words- Arbitrariness, Discretion, Welfare, Ministerial Action, Rule of Law.

A STUDY OF INTERRELATIONSHIP BETWEEN HUMIDITY AND EQUILIBRIUM MOISTURE CONTENT OF WOODS

Nov-Dec,2015, Vol - 3/21, Page - 1141/1150

The present study has been conducted to highlight the impact of change in relative humidity on the moisture contents of different kind of woods. Quite often, one finds that the doors and window frames exhibit different dimensions in the month of rainy seasons and hot summers. Such problems are more prominent in the areas witnessing significant changes in relative humidity level over the entire year period as compared to those where relative humidity remain in a constant range throughout the year. The engineers and interior decorators are therefore required to take into consideration this behavior of wood while using wood for constructing furniture, wooden floors and ceiling ,etc. to prevent any deformity in the structure at a later date. Preventive measures such as leaving gaps between two adjacent pieces of woods or filling up with some other material may be used to deal with this kind of problem. Further, the amount of dimensional change also varies with the kind of wood being used. The study has been conducted in Delhi-NCR region which faces phenomenal changes in the relative humidity level in one year time and therefore many people experiences such problem in their wooden doors and windows. Under this study, different pieces of Teak and Black Oak wood having same dimensions were exposed to varying level of relative humidity in different months and the  change in their dimensions were recorded. Statistical tests – t-test and ANOVA were used to test the statistical differences in the dimensions and inferences have been drawn. Based on the observations, meaningful conclusion and suggestions have been made.

Nov-Dec,2015, Vol - 3/21, Page - 1151/1161

Internet is becoming a widely accepted channel for information exchange and networking. It is experiencing tremendous growth and development in its size and numbers of users all over the world. The benefits of the internet have been widely researched and include keeping in touch with friends, making vacation plans, managing finances, assisting with educational needs etc. Despite the positive effects of internet, there is growing literature on the negative effects of its excessive use. The goal of this research is to examine the degree to which the students are addicted to Internet usage and the impact of Internet addiction (IA) on their academic success and mental health. While most young people today are consistently exploring all phases of Internet connections, there is a plethora of debate as to what constitutes leisurely use of the Internet and where the border lies between such use and a non-transient addiction. Therefore, our first goal is to determine a concise measurement for IA that will distinguish levels and usage patterns that will stipulate when one should be considered addicted and when not. As a result, we developed a comprehensive set of questions to measure this degree of IA. Key Words : Internet Addiction Academic Performance And Mental Health

Nov-Dec,2015, Vol - 3/21, Page - 1162/1175

It is interesting to know the kind of initiative that has taken by the state Government for the Empowerment of Vendors in Goa. The State Vendors policy, Strategies, Programmes are the political Manifestos during the Municipalities or Corporation election of the political parties which forms the Local Self Governments. It is out of these Strategies that the Political parties the makers of Government boast and claim of having extended basic amenities, financial and a rapid expansion of infrastructural development in the Market area. However, what the political party promises during the entire election period and the propaganda that follows for the entire election year are conveniently and deliberately forgotten once they form the Government. Though there are certain constitutional safeguards Which are provided for protection of vendors right  there is in fact no Significant Economic and Social awareness required for the fulfilment and achievement of lofty objective  that are enshrined in the various provisions of constitution and even the tiny vibrant state like even Goa is not exception to it.  The Present condition of the Vendors in Goa is such that their various developmental policies, Strategies, Programmes are not implemented during the successive five year plans and therefore, it has also had adverse impact on their socio-economic mobility. Their unsecured livelihoods position in terms of lack of legal entitlements & have push them into deep economic vulnerability. This  paper therefore,  discusses the implications of the new Act’s  and Protection of livelihood of the Vendors and further attempts to address the issue which will enquire, whether such act will finally lead to the inclusion of these people into the National mainstream. This is based on books, journals, and newspaper. The data collected from Goa Trade Unions Confederation of Goa is also used here. Keyword: - Livelihood, Good Governance, Policy, Legal status.

ROLE OF EXPERT NOVICE STUDIES IN EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH

Nov-Dec,2015, Vol - 3/21, Page - 1185/1189

Often in any domain we seek the help of Experts for better decision making and a systematic approach. But these ‘Experts’ are very few in number and this limited availability on other hand may lead to a stagnation in the decision making or problem solving. What can be done as a remedy here? If we are able to explore and transmit the so called ‘Expert Knowledge’ to the novices, to an extent these sorts of difficulties can be solved. It is here where Expert Novice studies can be thought as an alternative. Expert Novice studies involve natural contrasts between individuals at relatively high performance levels in a given domain (academic, discipline, profession or hobby) and individuals at a low performance level in that given domain. In the teaching learning scenario if such researches are implemented it could serve as a better solution for taking right decisions at right time. This paper throws light to Expert Novice studies as a research strategy and its role in educational research.

GOVERNMENT VERSUS PRIVATE INSTITUTIONS: WHO ARE PROFESSIONALLY BETTER ADJUSTED TEACHERS

Nov-Dec,2015, Vol - 3/21, Page - 1247/1253

In the paper, the researcher attempted to assess Professional Adjustment status of teachers working in Government and Private institutions on a sample of 792 teachers. Teachers have been classified into two categories viz. government and private teachers. To evaluate the status of professional adjustment of teachers, a tool viz. "Manual on Teachers Professional Adjustment" was used which was prepared and standardized by the investigator. The reliability and validity of the tool were found 0.89 and 0.66 respectively. On the basis of percentile rank and professional adjustment scores, professional adjustment status of teachers have been classified into three levels viz. well-adjusted, average-adjusted low-adjusted. Analysis of data was done by t-test and  2 test through SPSS version 13.0 and Prism 3.0. This study reveals that there is a significant difference between professional adjustment of government and private teachers. Even, proportions of professional adjustment between two groups are statistically significant at three levels of adjustment.  The serious concern is that only 12-19% teachers are well-adjusted, 13-13% teachers are low adjusted and around 6470% teachers are average-adjusted. The result clearly shows that the teachers who are working in government institutions are professionally better adjusted than the teachers working in private institutions.  Keywords: Professional Adjustment, Teacher, Govt.

Nov-Dec,2015, Vol - 3/21, Page - 1385/1392

In 21st century, we seek to promote excellence in teaching and learning in higher education and to enhance the quality of learning and teaching, to provide the best possible learning experience for all students and teachers. The new challenges are there and the engineering profession has to face it, confirming the need to restructure engineering curricula, teaching and learning practices, and processes, including assessment. Engineering graduates possessing merely technical knowledge is no longer a guarantee for a successful career. As a professional, the aim of the student is to succeed in the career path they have chosen for themselves. They want to be the best at what they do and move forward. However, sometimes students might wonder why they are not getting the “breaks” they need. Basically they have the hard skills; the technical knowledge and skills that will ensure that they do their job to the highest level of quality. And while all countries are facing this dilemma, India is also struggling the most. It has been argued that most Indian engineering educational institutions are struggling with the systemic problem of centralization coupled with an archaic examination system that is detrimental to student learning. This article examines some internationally renowned educational institutions that are embracing the growing importance of non-technical subjects and soft skills in 21st century engineering curricula. It will then examine the problems that India faces in doing the same. The 21st century has arrived, bringing with it new social, economic and environmental challenges. The world has become a global village. The new challenge for engineering is how to produce goods and services, and develop infrastructure, without damaging the environment.\' Carbon footprint\' is the new buzzword in any engineering project. In the last century, there were three constraints: humans, material and money. Engineering education needs a new paradigm if it is going to successfully train future engineers to fulfill society\'s new demands.

 “If you keep doing what you have always done, you are going to get what you always got”.

All teachers understand how to work effectively with ELLs (English Language Learners) in their own classes, including:

-          Culture plays an essential role in the classroom

-          Strategies to scaffold content instruction to make it more comprehensible

-          Basic principles of second language acquisition & how to promote the development of academic English

The term curriculum is derived from the Latin word currere meaning “racecourse” , includes contents, learning activities, teaching methodology, supporting material, methods of assessment and facilities. When we refer to “curriculum innovation”, we are referring to the ways in which many factors may contribute to transformations in classroom activity.

RESOLVING PROTECTION AND AUTHENTICATION ISSUES OF PERVASIVE COMPUTING EVNIRONMNET IN EPIDEMIC CONDITIONS

Nov-Dec,2015, Vol - 3/21, Page - 1393/1401

 Context administration in pervasive/epidemic computing environments must reflect the particular qualities of these environments, e.g. dispersion, mobility, asset obliged devices, or heterogeneity of context sources. Despite the fact that various context models have been displayed in the writing, none of them backings these necessities to a sufficient degree in the meantime. In this work, we exhibit a complete furthermore incorporated methodology for context modeling in pervasive computing environments . The proposed scheme flawlessly integrates two underlying cryptographic primitives, blind mark and hash chain, into a profoundly adaptable and lightweight authentication what\'s more key station protocol. The scheme gives express common authentication between a user and a service while permitting the user to namelessly cooperate with the service. Separated service access control is additionally empowered in the proposed scheme by arranging mobile users into diverse service bunches. In this work, we examined security issues and their current results in the mobile ad hoc network. This study depicts the crucial problems of ad hoc networking by providing for its related exploration foundation including the idea, gimmicks, status, and requisitions of MANET. Neighborhood Discovery (ND), namely, the discovery of devices directly reachable for communication or in physical proximity, becomes a fundamental requirement and a building block for various applications.

IMPLEMENTATION OF LOW POWER ASIC DESIGN BY SCRIPTED FLOW APPROACH

Nov-Dec,2015, Vol - 3/21, Page - 1408/1416

This paper focusing on automated flow using script for physical design. Here, we have implement PLB (Processor Local Bus) performance is one of the peripheral of PowerPC 405 processor core using scripting language (Tcl, Perl). As the scripting language is work as glue logic with EDA tool. In PnR, There are five steps: Floorplan, Power Planning, Placement, CTS, and Routing. The PPC-405 core demonstrate the scalability of the PowerPC Architecture in its optimal fit for application such as Consumer video application including digital cameras, video games and set-top boxes, handheld  GPS receiver, routers, LAN switches, ATM switches, high performance modems. We extend the probabilistic way to implement design by use of script. As result it’s reduce turnaround time by  three to four times and complete the task in automated manner like extract and save the report, if there’s need to convert one format to another than also it has feature using PERL language.  \"\"

Keywords: Tcl, Perl, script, PPC, PLB.

RISK ASSESSMENT OF MECHANICAL WORKSHOP

Nov-Dec,2015, Vol - 3/21, Page - 1417/1425

 The risk assessment was conducted for mechanical workshop of a selected vocational the institute from Bahrain(name of the institute is kept confidential).In risk assessment it was revealed that two of the lathe machines drive mechanism was exposed where operator’s cloths, hair or jewellery could get entangled causing cut, bruise, fracture, amputation or fatality. Moreover, the report also suggests temporarily isolation of two unguarded lathe machine by lockout tag out to prevent an accident as deadlines of practical submission force trainees to bypass the safety procedures. Investment on making these two lathe machines ready for use will help mechanical department to reduce load on other lathe machines. All these measures can ensure a safe working environment that is without injuries or accidents in the mechanical workshop. The report makes an assessment of the context and proposes the financial commitment required by an the instituteto put in place the safety systems. Thereby, ultimately the institutecomplies with the Bahrain Labour law of safety and ILO standards.

FRAUD DETECTION WITH SOCIAL NETWORK ANALYSIS: ANALYSIS ON IDENTITY FRAUD AND DETECTION SCHEME

Nov-Dec,2015, Vol - 3/21, Page - 1429/1439

 Fraud is a crime where the purpose is to appropriate money by an illegal form or method. Fraud leads to large losses to businesses or States or individuals. Since its detection is complex, there is not yet a fraud detection framework that can detect and prevent fraud in an efficient& accurate way. Almost any business enterprise that involves money and services can be compromised by fraudulent acts. Such areas as Capital Markets, Social Security, Insurance, Telecommunications, Financial Institutions, and Credit Cards are examples of where fraud may occur and where, in the recent past, there has been an effort to develop methods to combat this type of financial fraud. Each one of the areas has specific characteristics; therefore, a single solution that may be deployed to fight fraud in Credit Cards cannot be applied to Insurance industry. As a consequence, one of the approaches to fight fraud is to pursue a model that describes fraudulent behaviors, or, better, create mechanisms that distinguish fraudulent from non-fraudulent behaviors.
