Aim: The present study attempted to find out the relationship between positive and negative clinical symptoms and Wisconsin Card Sorting Test (WCST) performance in a group of schizophrenia patients. Methodology: Fifty schizophrenia patients were assessed using the Positive and Negative Syndrome Scale (PANSS) by a trained psychiatrist (TKA) and two groups, each of 25 positive symptom and 25 negative symptom schizophrenia patients were formed. On these fifty patients with schizophrenia and 15 normal control groups, WCST measures were applied by a clinical psychologist (SS) who remained blind to the PANSS score. Results: Schizophrenia diagnosis significantly affects WCST performances. One-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) revealed schizophrenia patients showed a significant impairment on all WCST indices compared with normal subjects except versus total number of correct responses. Post hoc comparison (Tukey HSD Test) between means revealed that negative schizophrenia patients showed significantly worse performance on most WCST performance parameters: percent errors, perseverative responses, percent perseverative responses, perseverative errors, percent perseverative errors, and conceptual level responses. Conclusions: Both positive and negative symptom schizophrenia patients have some distinct WCST measures deficits. © 2017 Indian Journal of Psychiatry | Published by Wolters Kluwer - Medknow.

Safety audit system is an important tool for identifying and assessing the status of existing occupational safety and health management system in an industry. It is carried out by qualified occupational safety and health professionals or safety auditors. A report of the safety audit is prepared by the audit team bringing out the strength and weaknesses of the occupational safety and health system of the industry along with recommendations for improvements. This paper deals with safety audit system in Indian Engineering Industries and various aspects of safety audit systems.

A framework to measure safety culture maturity in Brazilian petrochemical companies was formulated. A questionnaire was designed to measure 5 aspects of organizational safety indicative of 5 levels of cultural maturity in Brazilian industry. The questionnaire was completed by the employees (N=147) of 15 petrochemical companies based in Camacari, Brazil. The reliability of the questionnaire was checked and the Cronbach's a for each dimension range from α = 0.635 to α = 0.832, demonstrating good reliability of the measures used. The research findings demonstrated that the companies studied showed characteristics of different levels of safety culture. The framework was found to be practical to use, making it possible to identify levels of safety culture maturity in the context of the Brazilian petrochemical industry.

A framework to measure safety culture maturity in the Brazilian oil and gas companies was formulated based on the model of Hudson (2001). Following a review of the safety culture literature, a questionnaire was designed to measure five aspects of organisational safety indicative of five levels of cultural maturity. The questionnaire was completed by the safety managers of 23 petrochemical companies based in Camacari, Bahia, Brazil and they were interviewed one month later. The reliability of the questionnaire was tested by asking the same questions in an interview and comparing the results (alternate forms reliability). The correlation coefficients between the questionnaire and interview scores on each dimension ranged from r=0.7 to 0.9, demonstrating good reliability of the measures used. The research findings demonstrated that the 23 companies studied showed characteristics of different levels of safety culture maturity. Most scores were at the level of proactive. The model of Hudson (2001) and the revised framework and questionnaire were found to be practical to use, making it possible to identify levels of safety culture maturity in the context of the Brazilian petrochemical industry. © 2010 Elsevier Ltd.

Literacy and general education form the base of the knowledge pyramid essential for a rapid and sustained development of the society of the 21st Century. Skills increase the ability to innovate and adopt new technologies making the difference between inclusive growth and growth that leaves large segments of society behind. In low-income countries, scarcity of workers with relevant education and demonstrated skills constrains growth of the productive formal economy. There will be a shortage of Global skilled manpower by 56.5 million by 2020 out of which India will be in a position to supply 47 million skilled manpower. Government of India is having an ambition to train 500 million persons by the year 2022 by involving all stakeholders. In this paper we will analyze the various issues relating to Vocational Training in Indian context. © 2012 IEEE.

Educational Institutions are under increasing pressure to deliver more for less and they need to find ways to offer rich, affordable services and tools. Cloud computing has the potential to provide computation and storage resources as services. Both the public as well as the private institutions can use the cloud computing to deliver better services with limited resources. Around 45 million people will be in the age group of 18 to 20 years by 2020 in India. To make available quality education for them will be challenging task. This paper is an analytical study on role of cloud computing in education. © 2012 IEEE.

Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) play a key role in development & Economic growth of the Developing countries of the World. Political, Cultural, Socio-economic Developmental & Behavioral decisions today rests on the ability to access, gather, analyze and utilize Information and Knowledge. ICT is the conduits that transmit information and knowledge to individual to widen their choices for Economic and social empowerment. People around the Globe from few years from now will be carrying a handheld computer connected to the Web to get the information about the World at their fingertips. Government of India is having an ambitious objective of transforming the citizen-government interaction at all levels to by the electronic mode (e-Governance) by 2020.A successful ICT application in e-Governance giving one-stop solutions for rural community is the need of the hour. Implementation of IT Act 2000 is yet in a nebulous stage though the Act was enacted 10 years back. In this paper, we have analyzed various issues relating to e-Governance, Administrative Reforms in Rural Development context. We have also included an introductory discussion about "Information and Communication Technologies" sector strategy approach paper 2011 which will define the road map for preparing the World Bank Groups new ICT sector strategy for the coming years for the development of the poor & developing countries of the Glob. © 2011 Springer-Verlag.

In this paper we are proposing a new Attribute Selection Measure Function (heuristic) on existing C4.5 algorithm. The advantage of heuristic is that the split information never approaches zero, hence produces stable Rule set and Decision Tree. In ideal situation, in admission process in engineering colleges in India, a student takes admission based on AIEEE rank and family pressure. If the student does not get admission in the desired branch of engineering, then they find it difficult to take decision which will be the suitable branch. The proposed knowledge based decision technique will guide the student for admission in proper branch of engineering. Another approach is also made to analyze the accuracy rate for decision tree algorithm (C5.0) and back propagation algorithm (ANN) to find out which one is more accurate for decision making. In this research work we have used the AIEEE2007 Database. © 2011 IEEE.
