Background: Traumatic C2–3 dislocation has been often described in the antero-posterior plane but is extremely rare in the lateral plane. Such dislocations have been described in thoraco-lumbar and C1–2. The need to study the imaging in multiple planes has been highlighted to plan proper realignment. Methods: A young male presented with neck pain alone following a train accident. The imaging showed a fracture of C3 splaying it. The C2–3 showed lateral dislocation in the lateral plane with locked C2–3 facets on one side and C3–4 facets on the other. Through the posterior approach, the dislocation was corrected by manipulating (distraction and rotation) the lateral mass screws and rods. Curvilinear rods helped to maintain realignment after reduction. Residual lateral rotation was corrected by subsequent anterior approach. Results: Compression, distraction and lateral force possibly resulted in such fracture dislocation. Using the technique, the fracture fragments could be realigned perfectly and the reduction was maintained. Conclusion: The saddle shape of the sub-axial cervical spine prevents such lateral dislocations. It is imperative to study the radiology in multiple planes to assess the ‘multiplanar dislocation’. Correction is possible with proper planning and manipulation of facets and bodies using the available instrumentation. Though not obtained in this case, a preoperative MRI and a CT angiogram are important in surgery planning. © 2017 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg

Technological developments including those issued from electric propulsion require the application of appropriate risk assessments to ensure the safety of the driver, passengers and external people. The current safeties standards (e.g. ISO 26262) are not always appropriate and do not systematically cover all causes of risk or any type of technology. SECTOR specializes in risk analyses adapted to the vehicle as a whole and the context in which it is marketed, whatever the technological innovations it presents.

The Koraput region of the Eastern Ghats of India is a unique area of topographical and ecological diversity with great variation in altitude (80-1, 500 m). It is predominantly inhabited by some of the most primitive tribes of diverse origin, who are mostly involved in agriculture-related activities. The archeological evidences and available agrobiodiversity, including the ancestral species and the intermediate forms of some of the important crop species suggest that the interaction of the early tribes with the landscape and the biodiversity has resulted in the domestication of several species, including some of the most important crops, like rice and pigeonpea, breeds of some cattle, and the introduction of a few species. The cultivation of domesticated species under diverse ecological conditions evolved various production systems suited to the diverse ecologies and a reservoir of genetic diversity in the form of landraces and farmers' varieties. Together the local tribes have conserved diverse cultural and cultivation practices, and a large number of landraces and farmers' varieties, making significant contributions towards global agriculture. Recently, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), in recognition of these significant contributions facilitating the livelihood of humanity have recognized the region as one of the sites of the Globally Important Agricultural Heritage Systems. The present article enumerates some of these contributions to justify the world recognition, and proposes the region as another Indian national agricultural biodiversity heritage site.

The arid region of western Rajasthan, parts of southern Haryana, and the Kutch region of Gujarat harbor a unique biodiversity that is adapted to conditions of low water availability. Recognizing the region's chronic scarcity of water, the local communities have developed unique methods for the storage and conservation of water, such as step-wells, khadin, etc., to sustain themselves and their agricultural activities. The farmers have developed ingenious agroforestry systems that incorporate indigenous multipurpose trees (Prosopis cineraria), exotic drought-tolerant cereals (pearl millet), and pulses (cowpea), in order to facilitate dryland agriculture and to effectively manage the extreme environment. The traditional animal husbandry of nomadic settlements (the phase in human evolution subsequent to that of hunting and gathering) is still practiced, facilitating the sustainable use of grasslands and its development into a profitable proposition. Further, the region has contributed to international agriculture by selecting early-maturing, drought-, heat-, and salinity-tolerant varieties in major crops. The present article illustrates these facts in some detail to justify the proposition of this region as another Agricultural Biodiversity Heritage Site.

Condition monitoring of gearboxes which is considered as a key element of rotating machines ensures to continuously reduce and eliminate cost, unscheduled downtime and unexpected breakdowns. Although, a lot of work on condition monitoring and fault diagnosis of fixed-axis gearbox has been reported in the literature, however only a few have found their way to industrial applications. The ability of condition statistical indicators is to provide accurate and precise information about the health of various components at different levels of damage. In this paper, frequently used condition indicators are addressed domain-wise and their characteristics are stated. This paper presents the review of work to provide a wide and good reference for researchers to be utilized. The structure of a fixed-axis gearbox in addition to the unique behaviors and fault characteristics of fixed-axis gearbox has been recognized and represented. By extensively reviewing and categorizing important papers and articles, this paper is able to summarize the conditional monitoring indicators on basis of adopted methodologies. Lastly, open problems are stated and further research prospects pointed out. © 2016 CIMNE, Barcelona, Spain

Maternal and neonatal health is the current focus of central and state governments as well as various funding organizations. There is a lot happening in terms of expansion of secondary healthcare facilities and training of the healthcare personnel. This offers an exciting opportunity like never before, for those interested in the welfare of the newborns. Although infant and neonatal mortality rates in our country have been falling progressively, the pace has been much slower than expected, especially for neonatal mortality and we are likely to miss the Millennium Development Goals. In this article, the authors critically review the current status of neonatal health, infrastructure for neonatal care, the current national programs, the peculiar challenges we face and offer suggestions for alternative approaches to the way forward. The authors propose that neonatal care should be delivered as a continuum through an integrated district based model run by empowered District Coordination Committees with a smooth flow of referral and back-referrals between different levels of care. The prioritization and planning should be based on local data, needs and geopolitical scenario rather than a single national plan, which can provide a broad guideline. The need of the hour is to revive and make the primary care system functional and accountable while expanding and ensuring quality of special care services. © 2012 Dr. K C Chaudhuri Foundation.

Illumination Variation and wearable objects loses the partial facial information that it degrades the accuracy of recognition process. In this paper, a high performance driven accurate method is provided for facial recognition. The proposed MFAST (Multi-Featured Analog Signal Transformed) Model genuinely transmute the substantial facial information in analog featured conformation. This analog featured structured is formed using segmented featured elicitation. These features include center difference evaluation as moment, the asymmetric structure analysis as Skewness and Outlier Prone Measure as Kurtosis. These analogous features are shaped to justified form and generate a compound signal form. Mapping of these distillates signal points over facial dataset with specification of threshold window. The decomposed form recognition method enhanced the accuracy and performance. The experimentation on FERET, LFW and Indian Databases signify that the model outperformed than existing algorithms. © Springer Science+Business Media Singapore 2016.
