HYBRID SYSTEM IN WIND MILL FOR BETTER EFFICIENCY AND MORE PRODUCTION OF RENEWABLE SOURCE OF ENERGYIn parallel to developing technology, demand for more energy makes us seek new energy sources. The most important application field of this search is renewable energy resources. Wind and solar energy have being popular ones owing to abundant, ease of availability and convertibility to the electric energy. This work covers realization of a hybrid renewable energy system for a domestic application, to utilize the solar and wind power. Power resources and loads in the system are monitored and controlled in real time. The aim of this work is design and implementation of a domestic solar-wind hybrid energy system with piezo material. This work is expected to sustain some part of the daily domestic electricity consumption with an efficient utilization of solar and wind power. This paper presents a theoretical analysis to increase the total power generation of hybrid system that is verified with experimental results.Key Words: hybrid system, wind mill, renewable source of energy
Introspection into Language Acquisition and analyzing the impact after its conglomeration with TechnologyThis paper vividly discusses the flaws in the teaching sector, as for as English is concerned. Is the English being taught in Schools, colleges, Universities make the learner proficient in English? Despite of 12 continuous years of English education a learner at the post graduate level seeks a spoken English institute for his proficiency and seeks the help of another person for writing up his leave letter or any official document. We live in the technological era, ELT standard has risen, and innumerable institutions have sprouted up. But we are away from the fact that in most Engineering institutions in India, Language teachers are not the most sought, despite of the fact the employability of the learner depends on his quality of English! It is a pitiable fact, that in every institution Language teachers are deprived of the rights and privileges enjoyed by the major subject teachers. Look at the very word major subject / minor subject. Language has always been noted as secondary subject, in most institutions in India, the last hour is reserved for languages! When employability of the learner is the much talked about issue today, their incapability to deliver an English Lecture is what is discussed in every institution then a drastic change, revamping of our system is undoubtedly the need of the hour!Keywords: proficiency, secondary, drastic, revamping

EFFECTIVE ADMINISTRATION OF THE RIGHT OF CHILDREN TO FREE AND COMPULSORY EDUCATION (RTE) ACT: AN ESSENTIAL STEP TOWARDS ERADICATION OF CHILD LABOUR FROM INDIAThere are many children who are still out of school, the hardest to reach, will be pulled in by the efforts emanating from ‘The Right to Education (RTE) Act”. It is expected that an estimated over one crore children, who have either dropped out of school or who have neither been to any educational institution or school will get free and compulsory education, as it would be binding on the part of local, State and Central governments so as to ensure that all children in the age six to 14 years age group get schooling. But we find that all the efforts made by the Government and Non-governmental organizations are not able to bear any fruits so far as most of the children are engaged in child labour industries and factories. More than 16 percent of the total child population between 5-14 years of age are involved in child labour. In 2010, the International Labour Organization estimated that 12.6 percent of children aged 10-14 in India are part of child labour and more than 20 million children are out of schooling system. One out of every seven children is a victim of some sort of social evil. Rampant child labour is violation of human rights and yet is considered to a ‘necessary evil’ in a developing country like India. Raising awareness of the problem is one of the most important roles for International action to increase educational opportunities for child labourers. Effective administration of RTE-Act, 2009 would be able to solve many of the problems being faced by the children who are working in hazardous small scale and other cottage industries. Community participation and mobilization can also help to eradicate child labour effectively. The author in the present paper tries to highlight the need of free and compulsory education for all children between the age groups 5-14 years, so as to effectively combat the menace of child labour. The present paper also focuses on the role of Nongovernmental organization in eradication of child labour form the Indian society.

One definition of mobile learning is: Any sort of learning that happens when the learner is not at a fixed, predetermined location, or learning that happens when the learner takes advantage of the learning opportunities offered by mobile technologies. In other words mobile learning decreases limitation of learning location with the mobility of general portable devices. The term covers: learning with portable technologies including but not limited to handheld computers, MP3 players, notebooks and mobile phones. M-learning focuses on the mobility of the learner, interacting with portable technologies, and learning that reflects a focus on how society and its institutions can accommodate and support an increasingly mobile population. M-learning is convenient in that it is accessible from virtually anywhere. MLearning, like other forms of E-learning, is also collaborative; sharing is almost instantaneous among everyone using the same content, which leads to the reception of instant feedback and tips. M-Learning also brings strong portability by replacing books and notes with small RAMs, filled with tailored learning contents. In addition, this kind of learning is engaging and fun. Therefore, it is simple to utilize mobile learning for a more effective and entertaining experience.

A STUDY OF CULTIVATION OF MEDIA HABITS AMONG SCHOOL CHILDREN
TEACHER: A SOCIAL ENGINEER AND NEW DIRECTIONS FOR THE 21ST CENTURY TEACHERSThe word “Teacher” means a person who teaches in a school, whereas a person neednot work in a hospital to be doctor and need not appear in court to be an advocate, so teachingrefers to a process taking in a place or institution. It is consider being a profession rather thanservice. But, it should be classified as service through profession or a professional service.The tendency of the teachers should be such that they should realize the fact that each child sitting in front of them as a student is not a bundle of flesh, it has ‘urge’ for a search in it. Theduties and responsibilities of teachers should be of missionary zeal which brings satisfactionto both teacher and the learner. The satisfaction should be mutual and reciprocal. But thesatisfaction of teachers depends upon mostly in the outcome of the efforts and performance ofa student. Swami ji has innumerable words for the teacher. Much weight is given topiousness and characters of the teachers than the competence. Vivekananda says that the teacher should posses certain qualities. These are: A teacher should be a ‘tyaagi’ in the realsense of the term. He should posses a sound moral character and led an ideal life. He shouldremember that example is better than precept. Therefore, he should influence his pupilsthrough his ways of living, feeling, behaving and doing. A teacher must be dedicated to theteaching profession with a view to rendering selfless service like an ancient guru. The teachershould love his pupils. He should be sympathetic to his students. Without the sympathy hecannot teach to the pupil. A teacher must have a machinery zeal and angelic motive behindthe act of teaching. The role of a teacher is like a gardener, who prepares a ground for hisplants, protects them, gives manure, water and makes the plants grow.
