Kerala's uniquely successful experiment in participatory planning has seen the mobilisation of several thousands of people in the implementation of the Ninth Five-Year Plan. The process had its problems that arose essentially from the absence of a clear perspective about decentralisation. The impact of changing policies following a change of government also(More)
Measurement of ψ(2S) meson production in pp collisions at √ s = 7 TeV Abstract The differential cross-section for the inclusive production of ψ(2S) mesons in pp collisions at √ s = 7 TeV has been measured with the LHCb detector. The data sample corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 36 pb −1. The ψ(2S) mesons are reconstructed in the decay channels(More)
The production of Υ (1S), Υ (2S) and Υ (3S) mesons in proton-proton collisions at the centre-of-mass energy of √ s = 7 TeV is studied with the LHCb detector. The analysis is based on a data sample of 25 pb −1 collected at the Large Hadron Collider. The Υ mesons are reconstructed in the decay mode Υ → μ + μ − and the signal yields are extracted from a fit to(More)
AIMS This report describes the baseline characteristics of patients in the Reduction of Events with Darbepoetin alfa in Heart Failure trial (RED-HF) which is testing the hypothesis that anaemia correction with darbepoetin alfa will reduce the composite endpoint of death from any cause or hospital admission for worsening heart failure, and improve other(More)
The calibration and performance of the opposite-side flavour tagging algorithms used for the measurements of time-dependent asymmetries at the LHCb experiment are described. The algorithms have been developed using simulated events and optimized and calibrated with B+→J/ψK+, B0→J/ψK∗0 and B0→D∗-μ+νμ decay modes with 0.37 fb-1 of data collected in pp(More)
A novel method and instrumental system to determine the total protein concentration in a liquid sample is described. It uses a fiber optic total protein sensor (FOPS) based on the principles of fiber optic evanescent wave spectroscopy. The FOPS applies a dye-immobilized porous glass coating on a multi-mode optical fiber. The evanescent waves at the fiber(More)
The relative rates of B-meson decays into J/ψ and ψ(2S) mesons are measured for the three decay modes in pp collisions recorded with the LHCb detector. The ratios of branching fractions ([Formula: see text]) are measured to be [Formula: see text] where the third uncertainty is from the ratio of the ψ(2S) and J/ψ branching fractions to μ+μ-.
Jos Chathukulam* M. S. John** Abstract Intervention projects aimed at preventing STD and HIV generally tend to target the women sex workers and through them their clients. In such an approach women sex workers are often seen as the source of infection and the agents of change, with attendant burden accompanying that role. The responsibility for persuading(More)
Both solid-like and gas-like flow structures are considered in the calculation of viscosity of liquid (4)He using the significant structure theory of liquids. The predominance of quantum mechanical zero-point motion over that arising from thermal excitation is taken into account for the solid-like motion of molecules. The viscosity of liquid (4)He under its(More)
