1 Ethnic dimension in India-Myanmar Relations
T. Chongboi Haokip

Abstract: The study examines the changing dimensions of India-Myanmar Relations, the ethno-nationalist movement operating in northeast India and the peripheral region of Myanmar with special reference to the Kuki and Chin ethnic groups in relation to India-Myanmar relation. Both India and Myanmar are ethnically diverse nations which shared a porous international border with transnational nationalities on both the sides. The Kukis and Chins represents the transnational ethnic communities with shared historical past. Many studies on bilateral relations between India and Myanmar has been conducted, But the ethnic dimension has been ignored viz-a-viz the bilateral relations. The gist of this paper is to highlight the importance of understanding ethnic conflicts in the light of the study on India-Myanmar bilateral relations. In this paper the term Burma and Myanmar would be used interchangeably depending on the era. The term “Burma” would be used for the period before 1989 while “Myanmar” would referred to the period after 1989.

Theresa Ugonwa Okafor

Abstract: Physics has become the bedrock of many nations’ socio-economic development for sustainability. The study was a descriptive survey research design to investigate a way forward to enhance girl-child participation in Physics Education. The study was carried out in the forty-two public secondary schools in Aguata Education Zone of Anambra State. The population consisted of 232 Physics teachers in the education zone. Simple random sampling techniques were used to select 120 female Physics teachers and 80 male Physics teachers for the study. Two research questions and one null hypothesis guided the study. Data was collected using a-26 item structural questionnaire developed by the researcher. The reliability of instrument was established using Cronbach Alpha giving a reliability index of 0.84. Mean and standard deviation were used to answer research questions while t-test was used to test the null hypothesis at P<0.05 level of significance. The findings showed that early marriage, poverty, cultural/traditional belief, sex bias etc were obstacles to girl-child participation in Physics education. Some strategies to enhance girl-child active participation in Physics education such as modification of Physics teacher’s behaviour, awareness of campaigning at the grass root and national levels to discourage parents from denying their girl-child access to proper education by subjecting them to early marriage, child labour etc were highlighted. Elimination of masculine images of textual materials which discriminate against girl-child was emphasized. Educational implications were discussed and recommendations were made.

10 DESIGN OF ADAPTIVE FILTER THRESHOLDING & EMD BASED DE-NOISING METHOD FOR ECG SIGNALS OF MIT-BIH
Sujan Singh Thakur, Prof. Papiya Dutta

Abstract: An ECG signal is usually corrupted by various types of noises. Some of these noises are power line interface, baseline drift, muscle contraction, motion artifacts, electrosurgical noise, instrumentation noise & electromyography noises. It is highly required to develop a method which can filter ECG signal noises significantly. In this work, an EMD along with adaptive switching mean filter based new method for de-noising of ECG signal has been proposed. Unlike, conventional EMD based denoising approaches, where only lower orders IMFs are denoised in this work, along with EMD, ASMF operation has been employed for further signal quality improvement. lower order IMFs are filtered through wavelet de-noising technique to reduce high-frequency artifacts & retain QRS complexes. Then, considering effectiveness of ASMF, for further enhancement of signal quality adaptive switching mean filtering is performed. validity of performance of described technique is evaluated on standard MIT-BIH arrhythmia database. Gaussian noise at different signal to noise ratio (SNR) levels are added to original signals

Abstract: India is a vast country. Indian economy is classified in three sectors: Agriculture and allied services, Industrial sector and Services sector. India is the 2nd fastest growing economy after China. India is the 3rd largest economy on the basis of Purchasing Power Parity (PPP) and India is the 7th largest economy as per nominal GDP. Services sector has become important for many economies in the world and very important particularly in India. The services sector forms a backbone of social and economic development of a region. It is a large and most dynamic part of the Indian economy both in terms of employment potential and contribution to national income. Growth of the services sector is also an important aspect of economic development and is strongly associated with income and economic modernization. As an input to the production process, services are playing an increasing important role in manufacturing industries, world over. At world level, manufacturing sector as a whole has grown moderately in production and employment since last decade. This sector has added steam to its growth parameters and it is predicted that this growth rate will accelerate in the coming years, thus resulting in high demand of Indian professionals in both national as well as international markets.Services sector contributed around 60.20 per cent of employment in 1961-65 and 68.35 per cent of employment in 2006-12.The present paper shows components of GDP of various sectors at constant and current prices, GDP of sub-sectors of services sector at current and constant prices, annual compound growth rate at current and constant prices. The study takes time period of 62 years i.e. from 1951 to 2012. This paper aim to show that share of services sector has a favorable effect on the growth of Indian economy.

Yusriani Nasution1, Azwar Rasyidin , Yulnafatmawita and Amrizal Saidi

Abstract: Salak (Salacca sumatrana) is a profitable commodity with low and wide plant canopy that can retain rain and it roots could withstand the runoff. The purpose of this study was to determine the canopy interception of salak plant, tree canopy interception have a significant role in reducing the amount of rainfall that reaches the ground beneath the tree. The study has been tasted on the type of mineral soil in East Angkola District North Sumatera with an altitude of 350 - 880 m above sea level. The study period start from October 2016 to March 2017. The study was conducted by survey method with the calculation of interception based on the measurement of rainfall, stem flow and throughfall. Result showed that the maisured interception, throughfall and stemflow accounted was 71.96 mm (82.98 %), 15.19 mm (15.62%) and 0.78 mm (0.93%) of cumulative gross rainfall during 1 year. Simple and multiple linear regeresion was used to determine the interception relationship with rainfall, throughfall and stemflow factors. The multiple linear regression relationship between interception with rainfall, thrughfall and stemflow indicate a very strong regression relationship ie interception is strongly impact by three factors. The coefficient of determination (R2 = 0.938) indicate that there is a strong influence of the factors on interception. A very high number of interception of salak plants shows that salak plants can hold rainfall to fell the ground.

20 Potential of Passive Microwave Sensor for retrieval of Snow Water Equivalent: A Review
Manjinder Kaur,Gurjit Singh

Abstract: Snow Water Equivalent (SWE) information is essential for meteorology, water cycle, hydrology and global change studies. SWE is the one of most important parameter for accurate prediction of snow melt run off. In Himalaya due to the ruggedness and inaccessibility of Himalayan terrain, it is very difficult to monitor the snow cover information. However, microwave-based sensors in various satellites have the capability to estimates the snow cover characteristic i.e. snow depth, snow density and snow water equivalent. SWE estimates can be obtained from passive microwave sensor i.e.Scanning Multichannel Microwave Radiometer (SMMR), Special Sensor Microwave/Imager (SSM/I),Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer-Earth Orbiting System(EOS)(AMSR-E),Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer (AMSR ADEOS-II) and Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer-2 (AMSR-2). This paper briefly reviews historical passive microwave instruments and different techniques to estimate SWE.

Vidyasagar Yadav , Dr . Deepa Mehta

Abstract: Present paper tries to investigate the Issue and challenges of the school dropouts at the Primary level in Mirzapur District. The major essences influencing school dropouts were found to be students’ socioeconomic status, lack of parental support, Low family education, family mobility, students absenteeism and truancy, Lack of interest in education, Child bearing and domestic chores, Students delinquent behaviour, Drug and alcohol abuse, poor performance in studies, Uncaring teachers and school policies, Academic demotivation. Paper also tries show that Government Schools have more dropout of students than private schools because of Educational management of private schools and students’ higher socioeconomic background, etc. Paper gives some important suggestions to retain students in schools. This drop out incidence makes obstacles in government educational programme and lags the rate of development of our country. Mirzapur District shows low dropout rate than Uttar Pradesh but higher dropout rate than India. This paper is a sincere effort to cover all push, pull and falling out factors and present paper is based on data collected from 180 teachers and 60 head teachers from 12 blocks of Mirzapur district. A convenience sampling technique was used for the selection of sample. Data was collected through the use of questionnaire made by Mphale,L.M. Findings reveal that family background of students, individual experience in schools, roles of school Management teams are responsible for dropout of students.
