An invitro phytochemical study of ethanolic leaf extract of Pausinystaliayohimbe was done using Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry to identify the presence or absence of erectile compounds. The chromatogram of the leaf of Pausinystaliayohimbe showed eight peaks indicating the presence of eight phytocompounds. The most abundant compound was Linoleic acid with a [Retention Time: 22.689; Peak Area: 52.99% ; Molecular Formula: C18H32O2] followed by n-Hexadecanoic acid with [Retention Time:19.91; Peak Area: 15.87% ; Molecular Formula: C16H32O2] followed by 2-Methylene-11-hexadecanoic acid with [Retention Time: 21.774; Peak Area: 7.57% ; Molecular Formula of C17H28O2]. Other components identified were 2,4-Dimethy-1,3-dioxane, n-Hexadecanoic acid, methyl ester, 11-phenyundecanoic acid, Octadecanoic acid and 3,5-dihydroxy-6-methyl-2,3-dihydro-4H-pyran-4-one. The bioactivities of Pausinystaliayohimbe leaf extract were anti-carcinogenic, lipid metabolism regulation, antioxidation, anti-atherosclerotic and antifungal from the GCMS result. Therefore the leaf of Pausinystaliayohimbe may be having bioactivities different from the bark which is known to contain yohimbine for erectile disfunction.
The aim of the present study is to investigate the bioactive compounds from the leaf extract of Mallotusoppositifolius using GCMS analysis. The chromatogram showed nine peaks indicating the presence of nine compounds in the extract. The major phytocompounds in the leaf were Glutaconic anhydride with the highest concentration in the extract, 40.19 peak area %, RT 22.686 and molecular formula C5H4O3; 2-Mercaptophenol with 18.23 peak area %, RT 22.068 and molecular formula C6H6 OS. Iso-Valreic and Valeric acids with 12.39,2.53 peak area %, RT 3.676,7.037 and the same molecular formula C5H10 O2 which had been proposed to have anticonvulsant effect in valerian and act as neurotransmitter. Oleamide with the least concentration of 2.15 peak area %, RT 27.959 and molecular formula C18H35NO which could induce sleep in animals, being studied as a potential medical remedy for mood and sleep disorder and cannabinoid–regulated disorder. The phytochemicals in Mallotusoppositifolius could be of therapeutic importance.

An Analysis of Public Finance of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana State Pre-Bifurcation and Post-Bifurcation The Case Study From 1980-2016
Patlola Varun Reddy* & T. Sudarshan Reddy
The Public finance of Andhra Pradesh illustrates dynamic changes with reference to economic growth. The paper aims at studying trends in Public Revenue and Expenditure of A.P State Pre-bifurcation and Post-bifurcation. Andhra Pradesh is one of the major states in India endowed with rich natural resources having large potential for economic growth and development. Both economic and political factors influenced the public finance. A.P state witnessed and benefitted from economic reforms which the state initiated. The economy of Andhra Pradesh is evidently demarcated as pre- reform period and post-reform period. Andhra Pradesh has been one of the front-runners in implementing reforms since 1995-96, at a time when several major states were still skeptical about initiating reforms. Bifurcation of united Andhra Pradesh into A.P and Telangana is historical and challenging to economic performance of both bifurcated states. However Telangana state started its journey with Revenue Surplus and A.P state with Revenue Deficit. Both A.P and Telangana has advantages and disadvantages which will uplift the economic growth. This paper makes an analysis on Public Finance of both Telangana and residuary state of A.P
Effect Of Entrepreneurship Growth On Infrastructure Development In Emerging Economies
Felicia Omelogo Uchehara (Ph.D.)
The study investigated the effect of entrepreneurship growth on infrastructure development in emerging economies of Nigeria, Brazil and Malaysia. Data were sourced from World Development Indicator for the selected economies of Nigeria, Brazil and Malaysia for 25 years ranging from 1989 to 2013. Variables such as communication proxied by Telephone lines per 100 people (COM), and Power proxied by electric power transmission and distribution losses (POW) served as independent variables andentrepreneurship growth (EG) as dependent variable were incorporated into the model. The data were analyzed using multiple regression analysis of Ordinary Least Square (OLS) and cointegration technique. The conintegration analysed showed that there is a long run relationship between Entrepreneurial Development and Infrastructural Development in Emerging Economies. The OLS result revealed that only in Brazil that infrastructure has significant effect on entrepreneurial development indicating that mixed finding exist on the effect of entrepreneurial development on infrastructure development in emerging economies. The study thus recommend that entrepreneurial growth and infrastructure development should be encouraged through incentives such as tax holiday and through integration, communication, computer services and hi-tech firms as these variables are some of the world acclaimed economic indicators
Impact Of Forensic Accounting On Fraud Control In Nigeria (A Case Study Of Nigerian Deposit Insurance Corporation (NDIC))
Dike, Divine Chika, Ene, E. Emeka
In recent time, fraud has formed an integral part of developing countries like Nigeria where corruption through its indices like money laundering, over pricing and compromise of procurement proceedings are prevalent in the society and are regarded as norm, resulting in widening gap between the poor and the rich. This study examines the impact of forensic accounting on the prevention and control of fraud in the Nigerian banks. Ordinary least square (OLS) was utilized to examine the relationship that exists among research variables in addition to the test of hypothesis. Findings from the study revealed that there is a significant relationship between the forensic expert consultation expenditures and amount of fraud uncovered in Nigerian banks. It was also found that the higher the amount spent on forensic expert consultations, the higher the number of staff involved in bank frauds that are uncovered in Nigeria. The result further showed that there is a significant relationship between the amount spent on forensic expert consultation and the number of staff who lost their jobs on the grounds of fraud in deposit money banks. It can therefore be inferred that forensic accounting serves as a veritable instrument of fraud control in Nigeria. The study recommended, among others, that Nigerian government should evolve policies that would enhance the activities of forensic accountants towards the nation’s quest to eradicate corruption.
Captcha and Graphical Password Schema in Online Guessing Attacks, relay attacks if combined with dual view technologiDDes
An AI problem for security is emerging as an exciting new paradigm, but has been underexplored. In this paper, we introduce a new security primitive based on hard AI problems, namely, a novel family of graphical password systems integrating Captcha technology, which we call CaRP (Captcha as gRaphical Passwords). CaRP is click-based graphical passwords, where a sequence of clicks on an image is used to derive a password. Unlike other click-based graphical passwords, images used in CaRP are Captcha challenges, and a new CaRP image is generated for every login attempt. The notion of CaRP is simple but generic. CaRP can have multiple instantiations. In theory, any Captcha scheme relying on multiple-object classification can be converted to a CaRP scheme. We present exemplary CaRPs built on both text Captcha and image-recognition Captcha. One of them is a text CaRP wherein a is password a sequence of characters like a text password, but entered by clicking the right character sequence on CaRP images. We present a new security primitive based on hard AI problems, namely, a novel family of graphical password systems built on top of Captcha technology, which we call Captcha as graphical passwords (CaRP). CaRP is both a Captcha and a graphical password scheme. CaRP addresses a number of security problems altogether, such as online guessing attacks, relay attacks, and, if combined with dual-view technologiDDes, shoulder-surfing attacks. Notably, a CaRP password can be found only probabilistically by automatic online guessing attacks even if the password is in the search set.

The fact that technology and innovations have created a new world of opportunity for individuals, business and society is obvious. Only slightly less obvious is that the future will be shaped by only those who are innovating today. For insurance sector this is not just a fact, it is an imperative.
The reality is that customers and investors demand innovation. Indeed they expect it, not only from technology providers and manufacturers, but also from insurance organizations. Insurance providers can no longer do ‘more of the same’ and expect to grow. Striking the path for innovations needn’t mean starting from scratch. Instead, It is like leveraging wins and experiences, including the ideas of others, to create new propositions and approaches to delight customers and create values. It is about learning from both traditional competitors and new destructors. And this innovation imperative is not a simple equation. This is no ‘’silver bullets’’ to create a more innovative organism, no ‘’of the shelf’’ package that drives new ideas. Instead, insurers and intermediaries will need to navigate their own path through this new world of opportunities, developing new products in order to out-compete and out-innovate their peers
Hence, innovation is the need of the day of insurance industry and customers are expecting that these insurance should reach the untouched area of risk indemnity. In our present study we will see what are the recent innovations in the field of insurance like burial insurance, dog bite insurance, bottom line insurance, flood insurance, Hoosier daddy policy and the like. And also give an over view of a number of such new insurance products
