This study investigate the possible antioxidant properties of ginger in preventing damages to the liver and kidney of albino rats. To investigate this, 20% ethanol was injected into rats in order to induce liver and kidney damage. The rats were simultaneously given oral dose (200mg/kg body weight) of aqueous extract of ginger. The effects of these treatments on some liver and kidney enzymes were evaluated. Administration of ethanol alone to rats significantly (P< 0.05) reduced the activities of liver ALT and AST by 71% and 60% respectively. The values for kidney AST and ALT are 47% and 80% respectively. Significant reversal in the activity of the enzymes under study is found by withdrawal from ethanol (P< 0.05). Simultaneous treatment of ethanol injection with oral administration of 200mg/kg of the aqueous extract significantly reversed (P<0.05) these changes in both the liver and kidney. The activities of liver and kidney GGT were considerably reduced by ethanol administration and were found to be reversed by the plant extract. The activity of XOD and ALP were also found to be significantly different (P< 0.05) in the ethanol group compared to control, withdrawal and extract treated groups. The present findings suggest that the extract may probably possess components that are hepatoprotective and anti- nephrotoxic.

The exponential growth in mobile computing technology has resulted in the form of newer mobile devices with variable features and capabilities. Hence to maximise the utilisation of such devices, the mobile applications also need to be designed with capabilities to address the real-Time as well as non-real-Time services requirements using virtualization and distributed computing techniques. The prime disadvantage of conventional networks is fixed and inflexible in their operation. Due to their hierarchical architecture, traditional networks are unable to meet the future network requirements such as cloud services and big data analysis that requires classified network traffics based on user demands. Hence, the future network infrastructure has to fulfil few critical criteria such as dynamicity, scalability, adaptability, better quality of service in terms of improved bandwidth and reduced latency. But, the major factor such as node addressing at lower layers could be a critical issue which affects the above mentioned criteria equally. This paper presents a detailed analysis with respect to the consequences of node addressing issues in current networking standards. This paper also suggest some approaches to satisfy the outcomes such as dynamicity, scalability, adaptability and better quality of services for next generation network infrastructures. © 2015 IEEE.

The ligation behavior of 5-hydroxy-2-nitrobenzaldehydethiosemicarbazone (L) and its Mn(II), Co(II) and Ni(II) complexes has been synthesized and characterized by Elemental analysis, Electronic, FT-IR, Raman, EPR spectral techniques and Cyclic voltammetric study. The ligand (L) belongs to triclinic system with P1 space group. The IR spectral data of ligand indicate the taking part of sulphur and azomethine nitrogen in coordination to the central metal ion. The electronic, FT-IR and EPR spectral studies reveals all the complexes are distorted octahedral geometry. The synthesized ligand and its metal(II) complexes were tested for their antioxidant activity by 2, 2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) method and antibacterial activity against E.coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus subtilis, Salmonella typhi and Klebsiella pneumonia. The antibacterial and antioxidant activities of the ligand and its metal complexes had shown moderate to good activity, among all the compounds Ni(II) complex had shown more activity. © 2016 M.

The continuous alteration of living landscape in earth due to the greatest impact of information technology has converted the whole earth into a small digital village. That means anyone could share information in any form with any other person residing anywhere in the earth. With the availability of information and communication technology like cloud computing, heterogeneous networking, crowd sensing, web services and data mining, anywhere and anytime information sharing is possible, but this will bring out lot of challenges like incompatibility in standards, data portability, data aggregation, data dissemination, differential context and communication overhead. The ICT has changed many aspects of human lifestyle, work places and living spaces. However, there is one sector namely agriculture which has been deprived of the real advantages of ICT. Hence, there exists a digital divide between farming industry and other industries. Farming industry consumes large amount of natural resources such as water, energy and fertilizers that could escalate issues such as global warming, soil degradation and depletion of ground water to the next level. To reduce the global warming effect, farming industry needs to be integrated with relevant technologies. This paper proposes ubiquitous context oriented middleware architecture for precision agriculture (LA-COMPa) to solve major issues such as waste of water, improper application of fertilizer, choice of wrong crops and season, poor yield and lack of marketing. © 2015 IEEE.

The alteration of crops to improve their production was performed through the basis of selection before the creation of transgenics. This selection has been going on for thousands of years. By the year 2050, world population may reach nine billions. Food production will need to increase at the same rate or more in order to satisfy the needs of such an enormous number of people in some older centuries. So, there is a need to use the genetic techniques to improve crops over the recent decades. Through the use of transgenics, one can produce plants with desired traits and even increased yields. The transgenics would allow for more crops that last longer and withstand pests and diseases. Transgenic plant production will allow us to feed the growing population and to produce more desirable products. The future of GM crops remains a vital debate, as its applications have several advantages and disadvantages. © 2013 JPR Solutions. Published by Reed Elsevier India Pvt. Ltd.
