Smart home is regarded as an independent healthy living for elderly person. Advances in phone technology and new style of computing paradigm (i.e., cloud computing) permits real time acquisition, processing, and tracking of activities in smart home. In this paper, we develop android smartphone application to assists elderly people for independent living in(More)
Wheat streak mosaic virus (WSMV), vectored by Wheat curl mite, has been of great economic importance in the Great Plains of the United States and Canada. Recently, the virus has been identified in Australia, where it has spread quickly to all major wheat growing areas. The difficulties in finding adequate natural resistance in wheat prompted us to develop(More)
Activity recognition is an emerging field of research that enables a large number of human-centric applications in the u-healthcare domain. Currently, there are major challenges facing this field, including creating devices that are unobtrusive and handling uncertainties associated with dynamic activities. In this paper, we propose a novel Evolutionary(More)
Activity recognition requires further research to enable a multitude of human-centric applications in the smart home environment. Currently, the major challenges in activity recognition include the domination of major activities over minor activities, their non-deterministic nature and the lack of availability of human-understandable output. In this paper,(More)
INTRODUCTION Multidrug-resistant (MDR) tuberculosis (TB) strains are resistant to isoniazid and rifampicin. Clinical characteristics, drug susceptibility patterns, and outcomes of MDR-TB patients treated at Holy Family Hospital, Rawalpindi, Pakistan, were studied from January 2007 to April 2010. METHODOLOGY Thirty diagnosed patients (60% male and 40%(More)
Recognizing human activities is an active research area due to its applicability in many applications, such as assistive living and healthcare. Currently, the major challenges in activity recognition include the reliability of prediction of each classifier as they differ according to smart homes characteristics. It is not possible that one classifier always(More)
Wheat streak mosaic virus is an established major threat to wheat in North America and is newly identified in Australia. Three genetic sources of resistance were examined, Wsm1 (from an alien translocation), Wsm2 (from CO960293-2), and c2652 (selected in Canada). We report their effectiveness in the field when inoculated with an Australian WSMV isolate.(More)
Wheat streak mosaic virus (WSMV) is a persistent threat to wheat production, necessitating novel approaches for protection. We developed an artificial miRNA strategy against WSMV, incorporating five amiRNAs within one polycistronic amiRNA precursor. Using miRNA sequence and folding rules, we chose five amiRNAs targeting conserved regions of WSMV but(More)
The Northwest of Pakistan is the leading seed potato producing area of the country. The long presence of powdery scab in potato in the region led us to investigate the occurrence of potato mop-top virus (PMTV) in potato cultivars commercially grown in the region. We surveyed the hilly region, particularly Malakand and Hazara divisions, over 3 years i.e.(More)
In recent years, activity recognition in smart homes is an active research area due to its applicability in many applications, such as assistive living and healthcare. Besides activity recognition, the information collected from smart homes has great potential for other application domains like lifestyle analysis, security and surveillance, and interaction(More)
