In anti-lipid peroxidation assay, extract showed a decrease in the absorbance which was comparable with the standard ascorbic acid. In DPPH free radical scavenging assay, there was a decrease in the absorbance with increase in concentration, which indicate the antioxidant activity of Euphorbia hirta Linn.

Background: In the process of development of any nation or state, urbanization is an important aspect. The concept of urbanization is the transformation process of the rural agricultural population who moved to lived cities and towns and became an urban non-agricultural population.

This paper presents a new approach to minimize congestion in data networks. The routing algorithm guarantees a loss-free delivery of data packets from congested sources, and a deterministic bound on the route length in arbitrary topology networks. This work shows that routing decisions using Local Greedy method are not optimal, and the performance of the algorithm can be improved substantially by using new look-ahead measures.

A green, simple, practical and efficient copper-catalyzed method forsynthesis of aromatic carboxylic acids has been developed. The protocol uses inexpensive CuCl2/DMSO as the catalyst/solvent and readily available acetophenone derivative as thestarting materials, and the corresponding aromatic carboxylicacids were obtained in moderate to good yields. The method is oftolerance towards functional groups in the substrates.

Glutamate (Glu) dehydrogenase (GDH), enzyme preferentially occurs in the mitochondria of companion cells of a number of plant species grown on nitrate as the sole nitrogen source. For a better understanding of the controversial role of GDH either in ammonium assimilation or in the supply of cadmium, we studied the localization of GDH in tomato (Solanum Lycopersicon 63/5F1) plants grown either on absence of cadmium (AC) or on presence of cadmium (PC). Production of GDH and its activity were strongly induced when plants were grown on presence of cadmium.

Micronutrient deficiencies have been widely noticed in rice, wheat and other crops which causes low yield and increases malnutrition. Zinc deficiency remained a major problem all over country. Zinc deficiency can be overcome by addition of Zn fertilizer. But alternative strategy is use of efficient plant genotype that can more effectively grow on soil with low available zinc. With this background, a pot experiment was conducted to evaluate stress indices for identification of rice genotypes with higher yield in zinc stress soil.

The hydrochemistry of groundwater of an estuarine aquifer was used to assess the quality of groundwater for determining its suitability for drinking and agricultural uses. The potability of ground water was estimated by considering the individual and/or paired ionic concentration, certain indices like alkali hazards (in terms of Sodium Adsorbed Ratio), % Na, Residual Sodium Carbonate, Permeability Index and hardness etc. Scientific interpretation of analytical data was done using hydrochemical computer program, WATCLAST, to classify ground water into different categories.

The iterative algorithmic approach for binary multiplication based on ancient Nikhilam Sutra is described. Nikhilam sutra, one of the Multiplication Sutra of Vedic mathematics is efficient in multiplying large decimal numbers as it reduces multiplication of two large decimal numbers to two smaller numbers. The proposed iterative algorithm is taken from Nikhilam Sutra and is further optimized by use of dropping least significant zeros of the binary numbers and performing bit shifting to take the advantage of bit reduction in multiplication.

Though known to the world as a champion of radical ideas, Annie Besant has today fallen out of favour of critics worldwide. Critics have claimed to find a chasm between her private and public selves which they have interpreted as an inconsistency, almost amounting to a case of double lives. However, much of the readings that have focused on the “inconsistency” of views of Annie Besant have failed to take into account the context in which the shifts in her career took place.

In graph theory, a connected component of an undirected graph is a sub graph in which any two vertices are connected to each other by paths. For a graph G, if the sub graph of G itself is a connected component then the graph is called connected, else the graph G is called disconnected and each connected component sub graph is called it’s components. Circular-arc graphs have variety of applications involving traffic light sequencing, genetics etc. A dominating set D of graph G = (V,E) is a non-split dominating set if the induced sub graph < V-D > is connected.

Chemometric statistical techniques were applied for the evaluation and interpretation of a large complex water quality data set of Vaigai river in South India, monitoring 20 parameters at four different sites in quarterly basis. Principal component analysis resulted in three principal components (PC) explaining 99.9% of the total variance in water quality. The factors indicate that the possible variances in water quality may be due to either sources of anthropogenic origin or due to different biochemical processes that are taking place in system.

Wetlands are an incredibly important resource for wildlife, the public and to all of us as a social being. These productive and diverse ecosystems can be used to learn about many different topics including the water cycle, food chains, food webs, the importance of habitat, human impacts and how to get involved in conservation activities. It is widely accepted that wetland have a significant influence on hydrological cycle. Wetland has therefore become important elements in water management policy at national, regional and international level.
