Organizing contacts, friends, sharing thoughts, emotions searching content and data are the basic means that a social networking site provides. By sharing, and managing content the users form a social network for example, Facebook, Linkedin, twitter, Orkut, etc. A user may exist on several different social networking sites and the problem to maintain the account on these networks prevails. This brings us to define a Social network aggregation i.e. collecting the social content from different social networks and integrate it at a single location/site. It is an attempt to organize a user's social networking experience as whole. This paper gives a review on different Social network Aggregators and issues in integrating social network.

Neodymium (III)-selective electrodes have been prepared by using tin (IV) antimonotungstate (SnSbW) and zirconium (IV) antimonotungstate (ZrSbW) as electro-active materials and epoxy resin as a binding material. In the case of SnSbW, best performance is exhibited by a membrane having the composition: tin (IV) antimonotungstate (50%) and epoxy resin (50%). It shows excellent response in the concentration range of 10-4M to 10-1MNd (III) ion with a super- Nernstian slope of 40.0 mV/decade. It has a fast response time of 20 seconds and can be used for at least six months without any considerable divergence in potential. In the case of ZrSbW, best performance is exhibited by a membrane having the composition: Zirconium (IV) antimonotungstate (40%) and epoxy resin (60%). It shows excellent response in the concentration range of 10-5M to 10-1M Nd (III) ion with a near-Nernstian slope of 25.0 mV/decade. It has a fast response time of 10 seconds and can be used for at least six months without any considerable divergence in potential. Effect of internal solution has been studied and the electrode was successfully used in partially non-aqueous medium, too. Selectivity coefficients have been determined by FIM method, with respect to alkali, alkaline earth, some transition and rare earth metal ions. ZrSbW electrode can be used in the pH range of 2.9-9.9 and SnSbW shows pH range 3.0-9.0. Both the electrodes have been used as indicator electrodes in the potentiometric titration of Nd (III) ions against EDTA. © Taylor & Francis.

In this work, quantitative assessment of surface damage in terms of parameters like surface crack density and recast layer thickness in wire electrical discharge machining (WEDM) process has been undertaken. The effect of processing conditions on crack formation is studied using scanning electron microscope. Surface crack density and recast layer thickness analysis in terms of machining parameters such as pulse on time, pulse off time, peak current, spark gap voltage significantly deteriorate the microstructure of machined samples, which produces the deeper, wider overlapping craters, pock marks, globules of debris and micro cracks. The microstructure analysis of WEDM surface was based upon the theory of electrical discharge phase and metallurgical physics. It is found that the pulse on time, pulse off time and peak current are the most dominating parameters for both surface crack density and recast layer thickness. © 2016, © Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.

The itinerary an agent follows during its visit to each sensor in a cluster of a network has a profound effect on the time taken by the same to complete its tour. An optimal itinerary selection of a mobile agent has a primary role in determining the overall energy consumption of the network and aggregation cost especially when it is assigned the task of data fusion. The work thus proposes a novel approach for determining an agent's itinerary in a clustered network. Analysis of the same reveal that the proposed approach proves to be a better solution than the existing spatial based node selection techniques. © 2014 IEEE.

Polypharmacy is most common in the elderly, affecting about 40% of older adults living in their own homes. Polypharmacy means more than three drugs taken concurrently, more than three drugs taking occasion in the day. Polypharmacy is not a diagnosis given to a person by a doctor, but it is a phenomenon that carries as much risk as many other diagnosable disease states. It is important to understand the risk that polypharmacy poses, its causes, and what each person or care giver can do to minimize medication related problems. The fact that the medicines are often prescribed for "different conditions" is irrelevant to the patient's physiology. The idea that "we are doing the best we can," a frequent defense of polypharmacy, does not constitute a scientific argument in favor of it. © RJPT All right reserved.

Ontologies play vital role in agent communication in present semantic web. Manual construction of ontology is very complex and time consuming process. Thus it is mandatory to automate this task. A number of tools have been created to help the ontology generation in a semi automatic or manual way. But there is no standard framework for complete automation of this process. Though ontologies are highly reusable so based on a basic ontology other ontologies may be built for specific application domain. This work attempts to present a mechanism for automatic construction of ontology using intelligent agents. © 2013 IEEE.

This paper details a coupled vertical-lateral 37 degrees of freedom mathematical model of an Indian Railway general sleeper ICF coach is formulated using Lagrangian dynamics. In this analysis, the vertical and lateral irregularities of railway track are incorporated as a random function of time. The simulated results are compared with the experimental data obtained through actual rail vehicle testing. The ride comfort is evaluated incorporating ISO 2631-1 standard. © 2011.

In this paper, the state of the art of railway vehicle dynamics is presented. Much of the attention is paid to the performance characteristics such as lateral stability, curving, multibody simulation, wheel to track interaction, ride quality and comfort. The scope and limitations of linear and nonlinear analyses for vehicle dynamics are reviewed. Two and three dimensional theories for wheel-to-track interaction are discussed. Detailed analysis of ride quality and comfort evaluation methods is presented. Some concluding remarks are discussed along with further directions of research in the railway vehicle dynamics. © 2012.

In this paper, we define parametric R-norm directed-divergence convex function and discuss their special cases and prove some properties similar to Kullback-Leibler information measure. From R-norm divergence measure new information measures have also been derived and their relations with different measures of entropy have been obtained and give its application in industrial engineering. © 2016 World Scientific Publishing Company.

[Purpose] Post mastectomy lymphedema is common among breast cancer survivors. It leads to physical discomfort and functional impairment. Rehabilitation forms the mainstay of treatment and is multidisciplinary. [Subjects and Methods] Sixty post mastectomy patients were allocated randomly and assigned to either a conventional treatment group (n=30) or a complete decongestive therapy (CDT) group (n=30). The conventional treatment group received manual lymphatic drainage, wore a low elastic compression garment, received glenohumeral mobilization, and performed deep breathing exercises, and the complete decongestive therapy group received CDT from a trained physiotherapist and a daily home program along with the conventional treatment, 5 days a week for 6 weeks. [Results] Arm circumference measurements were taken at five levels: the wrist, mid forearm, elbow, mid-upper arm, and axilla. The upper extremity function was evaluated using the Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder, and Hand (DASH) questionnaire, and pain was assessed using the visual analogue scale. Measurements were taken at baseline, and at 4th and 6th weeks after the start of intervention. Within and between group comparisons showed significant improvements in the CDT group. [Conclusion] Complete decongestive therapy and a home program assists breast cancer related lymphedema survivors in regaining their lost functions. It also helps to improve their independence in daily activities, reduce their need for caregivers, and thereby improving their quality of life. Therefore, the results of this study showed that the CDT with a home program is an effective treatment for reducing post mastectomy lymphedema.
