IOT BASED SECURE DOOR LOCKING SYSTEM

IOT BASED SECURE DOOR LOCKING SYSTEM

As mentioned, the aim of this project is to solve one of the security issues prevailing in the present society. It has been very difficult for people to have better security solutions even though in the improved technological situations. IoT has proven to provide many security solutions and this paper proposes an optimum solution addressing on such issue. Various systems have already been proposed in the field of home automation using Bluetooth, ZigBee and RF modules. All the previous systems lacked wide range of accessibility, secure alert system and Monitoring system. In this system, it is not the lock but a brand-new Door is made with good mechanical arrangement and Robust locking system without losing the original essence of the Door. As the device is connected to Internet it can be controlled from any place with internet connectivity. This system is also embedded with Security alert system using a sensor acquisition and mobile application alerts user about the successful locking which user can monitor any point of time using mobile phone. The mechanical arrangement of door in this system provides two locking modes.one is Normal Locking mode and the other is Advanced locking mode. In the Normal mode, the locking system at the center of the rear face adjoining the free-corner of the door latches with the door wall mount, while in the advanced mode along with the center latch the other two locking systems present at the top and bottom of rear face of the door latches ensuring a robust contact.

A door-to-door survey to estimate the prevalence of Parkinsonism in Pakistan

A door-to-door survey to estimate the prevalence of Parkinsonism in Pakistan

The reported prevalence of Parkinson’s disease (PD) in different parts of the world varies considerably. Approaches such as door-to-door survey and record-based strategies have been used to estimate the prevalence of Parkinsonism in both Asian and Western populations. Some studies report lower prevalence rates in Asian popu- lations, suggesting differences in environmental conditions and geographic or racial differences. 1 Other studies report similar prevalence figures for Asian and Western

The Institution of Masking, Wall and Body Painting in Traditional Igbo Society

The Institution of Masking, Wall and Body Painting in Traditional Igbo Society

Aside from the body, the women also express themselves on the wall of the family compound or public buildings such as the village shrine. The symbols used by the women often represented things of physical importance that were aesthetically pleasing, since the main purpose of Uli was purely decorative, and training of the girl child. (Smith 2010, 3-4) says, “Uli was for aesthetic appeal, and was intended to beautify the female body or clay/mud walls, as beauty was equated with morality in Igbo culture”. Young girls learned the art of body painting by observing their mothers, grandmothers, or other women in the community. Smith states, “Once a woman was proficient at uli, her skill was employed in events such as title taking, marriages, seasonal celebrations, and memorial services for the dead”. Because of the recognition that was accorded to proficient Uli designer, the young learners pay apt attention so that they could grow to such statues and attract similar recognition.

The revolving door between government and the alcohol, food and gambling industries in Australia

The revolving door between government and the alcohol, food and gambling industries in Australia

representatives. We report on several examples of government employees going on to work directly for alcohol, food or gambling industries, some taking employment directly related to their previous employment in government. Key informants highlight the potential risks this poses to good governance. Conclusion: This study suggests that the revolving door that sees people move between roles in the Australian Government and alcohol, food and gambling industries is commonplace, creating a range of ethical and moral problems, and posing a risk to public health.

The Aspergillus fumigatus pkcA G579R mutant is defective in the activation of the cell wall integrity pathway but is dispensable for virulence in a neutropenic mouse infection model

The Aspergillus fumigatus pkcA G579R mutant is defective in the activation of the cell wall integrity pathway but is dispensable for virulence in a neutropenic mouse infection model

Alignment of fungal PKC sequences indicated that the proteins have a serine/threonine kinase domain and a regulatory domain comprising of the sub-domains HR1, C2 and two cys- teine-rich repeats (C1A and C1B) located between the pseudosubstrate region and the fungal specific Q/A/P-rich region [21, 22]. Classical and novel PKCs contain twin C1 domains occur- ring in the same molecule, which are designated as C1A and C1B [23]. The C1 domain of con- ventional PKC enzymes was first defined due to its ability to bind phorbol esters, which are non-metabolizable structural mimics of diacylglycerol (DAG) that bind to, and activate, pro- teins containing C1 domains, such as conventional PKCs [24, 25]. C1 domains play a crucial role in the translocation of PKCs and other molecules from the cytosol to membranes, in response to phorbol esters, or DAG, upon receptor activation [26]. Sequence alignments and closer inspections of the yeast C1 repeats show that Pkc1p does not bind DAG [23, 27]. The same is not true for other members of the fungal family of PKCs. For example, in Cryptococcus neoformans, the DAG C1 binding domain of Pkc1 is required for the proper localization of lac- cases in the cryptococcal cell wall and for the formation of melanin [28]. In Neurospora crassa PKC is activated by exogenous DAG and phorbol esters, and translocated to the plasma mem- brane from the cytoplasm [29]. In S. cerevisiae, an interaction with the Rho1 GTPase of the CWI pathway was observed to be mediated by the Pkc1 C1 domain [27, 30]. This interaction is

the former is fixed when the latter is fixed), the volume extruded in unit time will depend, for a given stress at the wall of the tube, upon the cube of the radius. While this is true for fluids, and is also true or nearly true for thick paste„ of soil and other minerals, it is lound not to be generally true of such pastes when examined over an extended range of concentration. Dis- crepancies would occur if condition (1) were invalidated owing to turbulence;

A Model to Plan the Operations and Control the Orders (the Case Study: Profile Door and Window Manufacturing (Upvc))

A Model to Plan the Operations and Control the Orders (the Case Study: Profile Door and Window Manufacturing (Upvc))

The objective of this research is to present an application model to plan the operations and to control the orders (the case study: profile door and window manufacturing (upvc)). The method applied in this paper is the field study. The measurement tools have been analyzed via investigating and analyzing the existing evidences, observations and interviews, and also taking use of the scientific models associating with the inventory control. This research has been in a way that primarily the mostly used raw materials in the year 2009 are determined and 6 items of the raw materials which included almost 94% of the warehouse inventory were chosen as the sample via ABC classification. Then, using EOQ formula the optimum amount of the order and using the ROP formula the reorder point and the precautious storage (Ss) have been calculated in the confidence level of 95%. In the next step the secondary optimization was performed on the basis of the order period system and finally the approach concerning the suggested model has been presented in order to plan and control the inventory of the items for the future period. The total results achieved imply that doing optimization, the total cost reduces considerably, and the possibility of not facing the deficiency of raw materials has an increase of 15%. Also the order status turned from the current system to the optimum system.

Use of Phase Change Materials In the Wall with TIM

Use of Phase Change Materials In the Wall with TIM

Due to the too high melting point of paraf­ fin (52 °C) and due to the too small paraffin thick­ ness (7mm), the measured wall element is less useful in practice. Heating of paraffin above the melting point occured, heat losses into the su r­ roundings therefore increased considerably and the stored heat was insufficient for heating of air thoughout the day.
