A Web crawler is a module of a search engine that fetches data from various servers. Web crawlers are an essential component to search engines; running a web crawler is a challenging task. It is a time-taking process to gather data from various sources around the world. Such a single process faces limitations on the processing power of a single machine and(More)
OBJECTIVES This study aims to investigate the role of different factors associated with exposure to second-hand smoke (SHS) in the workplace and home in the urban and rural areas of India. DESIGN Secondary analysis of the data from the Global Adult Tobacco Survey conducted in 2009-2010. SETTING AND PARTICIPANTS Data were analysed from 32 738 rural and(More)
BACKGROUND Tobacco use in India is characterized by a high prevalence of smoking and smokeless tobacco use, with dual use also contributing a noticeable proportion. In the context of such a high burden of tobacco use, this study examines the regional variations, and socioeconomic, demographic and other correlates of smoking, smokeless tobacco and dual use(More)
BACKGROUND Formation of inclusion bodies poses a major hurdle in recovery of bioactive recombinant protein from Escherichia coli. Urea and guanidine hydrochloride have routinely been used to solubilize inclusion body proteins, but many times result in poor recovery of bioactive protein. High pH buffers, detergents and organic solvents like n-propanol have(More)
Since the electric grid was not designed to support large-scale solar generation, current policies place hard caps on the number of solar systems that connect to the grid. Unfortunately, users are starting to hit these caps, which is restricting solar's natural growth. Software-defined solar (SDS) systems address the problem by dynamically regulating the(More)
Chemical compounds provide key information for text documents in the material science domain. For extraction and classification of chemical compounds in text, we present a novel kernel - Chemically Augmented String Kernel (CASK) - which incorporates periodic table properties of chemical elements. To evaluate the performance of CASK, we performed experiments(More)
Transition from traditional power grid into a smart grid involves collecting and processing a large amount of data from generation, transmission to consumer level. Data collected at each level differs considerably in terms of the parameters under observation and frequency of collection, satisfying the 5 Vs (volume, velocity, variety, value and veracity)(More)
— Construction of the smart grid network infrastructure is in the process of being laid out worldwide with the goal of energy efficiency from power generation to distribution. Making a smart grid work requires an array of enabling technologies, one of them being an integrated communications system. Smart meter plays a vital role in this communication(More)
