Author(s): Jennifer Turyatemba Tumushabe, Bariyo Rogers
Page(s): 08-19
Abstract

This study evaluates peoples’ perceptions on pine tree growing and food security by analyzing both questionnaires and group discussion to collect data.From analysis of respondents, the percentage of targeted respondents that actually responded to the questionnaire was 98%. From the preliminary analysis conducted in this study, majority of respondents have the following attributes,1 ) diploma level education, 2) are males, 3) aged between 36-45 years, and 4) Had a negative attitude towards pine tree growing. Many aspects have been perceived as the major causes of food insecurity in the Kigezi Highland of Uganda. Perceptions of on-farm pine tree plantations and food security were measured by the rate they attribute to farmers’ livelihoods. The attributes measured as variables, that is, population pressure, income disparity, biodiversity loss and ecological imbalance, tree-crop competition, soil and land degradation, gender consideration, tree diseases, labour requirements and food security conflicts. The study applied a mixed research method, where descriptive cross-sectional research design was adopted. Both the qualitative and quantitative approaches were employed. Primary and secondary data sources were used to acquire data to accomplish the study where 384 participants took part in the study. Data was analysed using SPSS where both descriptive and inferential statistics were used to determine the results. The findings of the study indicate that pine tree plantation have got a negative effect on food security in the Kigezi Highlands. Despite having carbon markets and other co-benefits from pine tree adoption, the findings indicate that minority are benefiting from this intervention. The study was to examine the Hypothesis H01 Farmers’ perceptions of pine tree plantations do not have significant effect on food security in Kigezi Highlands Region. Hence, the null hypothesis of no significant effect of pine tree plantations on food security in Kigezi Highlands Region Uganda is rejected. The evidence of negative effect of farmers’ perceptions of pine tree plantations on food security in Kigezi Highlands Region is also in accord with some extant literature. The study recommends the adoption on farm agroforestry where farmers will have co-benefit for food security and improved livelihood, and diversification of enterprises to improve livelihood of communities in the Kigezi Highlands..

Page(s): 20-30
Abstract

This paper presents a simulation study of a smart antenna (SA) system based on direction-of-arrival (DOA) estimation is based on the MUltiple SIgnal Classification (MUSIC) algorithm for finding the Position Location (PL) of the desired user. The beamformer steer the main beam towards the desired user and nullify all other interferer, through adaptive beamforming using Least Mean Square (LMS) algorithm. This simulation results revealed the sharper peaks in the MUSIC angular spectrum and deep nulls in the LMS beam pattern. Also, this paper deals with DOA estimation and adaptive beamforming for the dynamic case based on SA. Eigen decomposing fined the PL of the desired user using MUSIC algorithm and steer the beam toward this user using compute the weight vectors like Least Mean Square (LMS) algorithm. Also this paper illustrates the results for the LMS error on the basis of number of iteration / sample.

A Study on Prevalence and Economic Significance of Bovine Hydatidosis in Debire Birhan Municipal Abattoir, Centeral Ethiopia
Author(s): Ermias Gebeyehu
Page(s): 46-90
Abstract

A cross-sectional study aimed at determining the prevalence and estimating the financial losses due to cystic echinococcosis (hydatidosis) in cattle slaughtered at Debre Berhan municipal abattoir was conducted from November, 2014 to April, 2015. Out of 384 examined animals, 110 (28.6%) were harboring visible hydatid cysts. Significantly higher infection was detected in cattle’s with poor (48.40%) than animals with medium (24.10%) and good body condition (20.30%). The prevalence of the parasite in male and female was 29.83 and 29.8% respectively. However, there was no significant variation was between two sexes. The prevalence was not statistically different between local (30.10%) and cross (19.20%) breeds. Regarding organ distribution, infections of the lung, liver, kidney and heart were 52.50, 38.10, 5.00, and 4.40%, respectively. Of the total 160 hydatid cysts counted, 64 (40.00%) were fertile, 80 (50.00%) sterile, and 16 (10.00%) were calcified. Of the 64 fertile cysts subjected for viability test, 24 (37.50%) were viable while 40 (62.50%) were nonviable. Moreover, assessment of annual economic loss due to bovine hydatidosis at Debre Berhan municipal abattoir from offal condemnation and carcass weight loss was about 3,730,328 ETB (186,516.40 USD). As the infection was detected in this study, there seems to be an existing favorable situation for hydatidosis, and hence, it remains one of the most important diseases warranting serious attention for prevention and control actions in the district. Hence, establishment of well-equipped standardized abattoirs, creation of public awareness, and control of stray dogs have paramount importance..

Author(s): R. Suriyakala , A.Jayabal
Page(s): 91-94
Abstract

Concrete is one of the most important materials employed in public works and building construction projects. It means that we are utilizing a tremendous amount of concrete and we will continue to use it. On the other hand, sustainable development has become more and more important. The human race is steadily transitioning its socio economic system in an effort to solve its resource, energy and environmental problems. It is obvious that the concrete industry also have to introduce environmental axis in to technologies.
In this project, recycled coarse aggregate was used as coarse aggregate and the fine aggregate composed of 85% of recycled fine aggregate and 15% of natural fine aggregate. Cement was replaced with flyash at 0%,10%,20%,30%& 40%. Concrete was prepared with the above ingredients and also with the air entraining agent. A comparative study was carried out on the properties of plain concrete and air entrained concrete and optimum percentage replacement of cement with flyash was also carried out. Nominal mix mentioned in the IS 456-2000 for M20 grade concrete was used for casting the specimens. Tests were carried out to find the compressive strength, strength and modulus of elasticity. Results of recycled aggregate concrete were compared with the air entrained recycled aggregate concrete. The optimum percentage replacement of cement with flyash is also reported.

Measurement of Software Metrics
Author(s): Sanjeev Kumar
Page(s): 95-103
Abstract

By its nature, engineering is a quantitative discipline. Engineers use numbers to help them design and assess the product to be built. Until recently, software engineers had little quantitative guidance in their work - but that's changing. Technical metrics help software engineers gain insight into the design and construction of the products they build. Software project effort estimation is frequently seen as complex and expensive for individual software engineers. The Metric-set selection has a vital role in software cost estimation studies; its importance has been ignored especially in neural network.

Abstract

Phishing is defined as mimicking a trusted company's website aiming to take private information of a victim. Different solutions have proposed in order to eliminate phishing. However, we can’t expect magic from single bullet to eliminate phishing threat completely. Data mining is a promising technique used to detect phishing attacks. In this paper, an intelligent system to detect phishing attacks is presented. We used different data mining techniques to decide categories of websites: legitimate or phishing. Different classifiers were used in order to construct accurate intelligent system for phishing website detection.

Employee Engagement: Weapon in the Hands of HR Practitioners for Challenges of Talent War about to Begin
Author(s): Mr. Kishore Chandra Das, Dr. Sudip Kumar Ghose
Page(s): 124-131
Abstract

Ever since 1998, when a group of McKinsey consultants coined the expression ‘war for talent’ and posited that a fundamental belief in the importance of talent is needed to achieve organizational excellence (Michaels, Handfield-Jones, & Axelrod, 2001) the practitioners have always in search of weapons to win that for themselves. It is even more relevant now as preparedness of business and industry for the unprecedented challenges to be faced in the HR-front by virtue of talent war about to be more fierce in future. All most all the industriesare witnessing a very uncertain path over the last decade in the face of global recession and fluctuating market conditions. With 4G era round the corner and technology dominating the business in never before manner, it is evident that the talent pool which is an asset in the hands of the HR-mangers yesterday is not only considered obsolete to day but also overtaking the so called succession strategy. The human resources are now being evaluated from various prospective; also new ways and means are being figured out to keep them fighting fit in this era where you should create a talent faster than you lose a talent. Hence continuous search for tools to manage the talent or human resources in macro sense is a night mare for HR practitioners. Current study will be very much instrumental in addressing this issue because we have chosen a very strong tool called employee engagement which has fascinated many HR professionals for its exhaustive germane to the cardinal driving forces in people at work. Managing talent with a fare degree of accuracy will be the key to achieve the talent war across the business and industry.

Analysis on Conservation Status of Wild Life Habitats: A Case Study of Shwebo and Kanbalu District,Sagaing Region,Myanmar
Author(s): Myint San Win
Page(s): 132-141
Abstract

Shwebo and Kanbalu Districts which lie in the northern most part of the Dry Zone of Myanmar had once widespread distribution of wild animals. As local economies and population expand, throughout the region, forests, grasslands are being degraded or lost. Terrestrial mammals and bird population are under pressure from overexploitation. The objectives of this paper are to provide a basis for the development of wildlife conservation and protected areas; to highlight sites that are threatened or in adequately protected, so that urgent remedial measures can be taken. Arc GIS is used to show the spatial distribution of wild life habitats in conjunction with data. Conservation analysis is made by using Wikramanayake’s Weighted Criteria Method. The results show that wild habitats in study areas have contracted greatly and some of these habitats will require expanded-protected areas with strong law enforcement, while others will require additional strategies based on modifying human land uses.
