Comparative Analysis of Models for Fischer-Tropsch Synthesis in Slurry Reactors[ ]


Two approaches for modeling slurry bubble column reactors in Fischer-Tropsch synthesis are presented and compared in this work. The first approach, Uniform Bubble Model (UBM) assumes the gas bubbles moving up the reactor are of uniform sizes, while the second model termed Large-Small Bubble model (LSBM) takes cognizance of the presence of large and small bubbles. It is assumed that both the gas and liquid phases are axially dispersed.

Caregivers’ Use of Non-Verbal Cues in Enhancing Patients’ Well-Being and Satisfaction[ ]


Non-verbal communication is important in patient-doctor relationship in recording accurate conditions during medical interview. Gestures such as social touch and moderate eye contact are effective in improving the chances of fast recovery. Sometimes, when patients are explaining how they feel, caregivers (doctors and nurses) deviate and conclude without trying to understand the patient. Meanwhile, being able to understand the patient’s body language and facial expressions is key to making correct diagnosis and finding solutions.

Effects of Pruning on the Growth of Okra[ ]


The experiment on “The Effects of Pruning on the Growth of Okra (Abelmoschus esculentus (L.) Moench)” was conducted in a Screen House with the aim of determining the response of okra plants to pruning, using the Clemson Spineless variety. The study consisted of 12 experimental potted plants, which were divided into three groups; A, B, and C. with four replicates. All plants received the same treatment except for the pruning (treatment). Group “A” served as the control, while groups “B” and “C” were pruned. Group B had the pruning at the terminal buts while the plants in group C had the pruning at axillary buds. Pruning was done 2 weeks after planting and reading started on the day of pruning.

A PARTICIPANT-DRIVEN FRAMEWORK FOR INTERNET OF THINGS (IOT) SECURITY POLICY[ ]


The ability to connect, communicate with, and remotely manage an incalculable number of automated devices via the Internet is becoming pervasive, from the factory floor to the hospital operating room to the residential basement. Internet of Things (IoT) can also be described, according to [5] as the use of intelligently connected devices and systems to leverage data gathered by embedded sensors and actuators in machines and other physical objects. In other words, it is a system of interrelated computing devices, mechanical and digital machines, objects, animals or people that are provided with unique identifiers (UIDs) and the ability to transfer data over a network without requiring human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction.

Application of Operations Research in Agriculture[ ]


In our research paper, we have discussed the Applications of Operations Research to the Agriculture Industry. Agriculture is an industry involving a large number of decisions to be taken, both planned and unplanned. Since this industry is highly influenced by external factors, the farmers have to be ready to face any situation that comes their way. In Agriculture, decisions have to be taken in the present, for the future, in the presence of the aspect of uncertainty. Since uncertainty is a subjective phenomenon, parameters of a probability distribution cannot be established accurately.

RAPID RESPONSE TO RANSOMWARE[ ]


Attackers ranging from cyber criminals to state sponsored groups have begun to change their tactics, making use of oper-ating system features, off the shelf tools and cloud services to compromise their victims. Until recently, cyber criminals mainly focus on bank customers, raiding accounts or stealing credit cards. However, a new breed of attackers has emerged and that have bigger ambitions and they are targeting banks themselves, sometimes attempting to steal millions of dollars in a single at-tack. Ransomware has become one of the most sophisticated cybercrimes as of late.
