BACKGROUND To determine the prevalence of type 2 diabetes (T2DM) and impaired glucose regulation (impaired fasting glucose [IFG] and impaired glucose tolerance [IGT]) in an urbanizing rural population of Bangladesh and associated cardiometabolic risk indicators and depression. METHODS A total of 2,293 subjects aged ≥20 years in an urbanizing rural… (More)
BACKGROUND To observe changes in the prevalence of type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM) and impaired fasting glucose (IFG) and its associated risk factors in a rural Bangladeshi population over a 10-year period. METHODS Three cross-sectional studies were undertaken in a rural community (aged ≥20 years) in 1999, 2004, and 2009. Structured questionnaires including… (More)

Wireless Sensor Networks are made up of restricted energy driven resources. When the installation setup of sensor nodes are over usually they are inaccessible to the user. Hence the replacement of battery source is not feasible. In order to boost the life span of the network, the key design issue is to be enhanced which is energy efficiency. With the… (More)
Advancement in computer system hardware makes it difficult to meet the demands of teaching computer architecture and organization. Visualization of different architectures enhances the learning process among students by using simulators. Rather making a comprehensive simulator that can cater the requirement for the course, freely available simulators can… (More)
Nowadays Wireless sensor network is one of the fastest growing and emerging area in the scientific and engineering world. Its basic objective is to sense the crucial data and send it Base station so that it take corrective actions further. Sensor nodes interact with each other via various Routing protocols. This paper surveys various network structure and… (More)
