Now a day’s users are generating huge amount of data and hence they are motivated to outsource it to the public cloud. As cloud server is not trusted server, so data users wants their data to be safe at cloud side. To preserve the privacy of documents, it should get encrypted before outsourcing to the cloud. For ensuring privacy of documents, numerous algorithms have been proposed which makes user data private and avoid unauthorized access to their confidential data. Most essential characteristics of any Encryption algorithm are: Speed of Encryption and Security. In this Paper, speed comparisons between two algorithms i.e. Twofish and Blowfish have been studied. We have analyzed encryption speed of both algorithms by encrypting different sized data. Performance has been calculated in terms of throughput of each algorithm on different sets of data..
The IS-LM-BB: A Model For Unconventional Monetary Policy
Waldo Mendoza Bellido
The Monetary policy of the United States has not been the same since the 2008-2009 international crisis. Following the crisis, given that the federal funds interest rate - the conventional monetary policy instrument - fell to almost zero, the Federal Reserve (FED) had to resort to two unconventional instruments: Firstly, an announcement on the future trajectory of the short-term interest rate. Secondly, direct intervention in the long-term bond market.

Challenge of having access to public utilities in Bukavu (DRC): Electricity, Water, Healthcare, Justice, and Education
Vincent Mukwege Buhendwa
The enjoyment of human rights cannot be effective for citizens unless they equally have access to public utilities such as water, electricity, healthcare, justice and education infrastructures and facilities. As s pointed out by a research published by Yash Ghai & Jill Cottrell in 2004, “without securing economic and social, as well as civil and political rights, the most deprived, vulnerable and powerless peoples of the world remain excluded from the enjoyment of their essential human entitlements.(…)what is essential is that all human rights are translated into practices so that their enjoyment becomes a reality”. Indeed, deprived peoples, whether in Africa or worldwide, the lack or the absence of public utilities is a sign of underdevelopment and citizens who do not have access to water, healthcare, electricity, education, and even information have a little chance or not to improve their livelihoods and contribute to the economic growth of their countries. So, I am not assuming that citizens do not need state or governmental control to allow them enjoying their rights. For, “in modern societies, rights cannot be fully protected by preventing governmental intrusions in the lives of citizens. In the contrary, the lack or the absence of the state authority (and control) is somehow worse than freedom. In the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), since 1990, the state has been collapsing and the major yardstick of such a collapse can be found in the public administration in terms of lack of governance leading to corruption, tax evasion, impunity and no access to public utilities. In this article, I first focused on the topic by dealing with the methodological aspects I used to collect data, the findings of the research. Then, findings will be discussed in terms of recommendations to raise decision-makers ‘awareness on the relationship between public utilities access and human development or well-being. Finally, within my conclusion, I came up with some limitations or gaps to overcome in order to improve this study.
1. Methodological approaches I have to mention that this study was conducted from 2013 to 2014 in Bukavu, the capital of the South Kivu Province in DRC, as part of my research in Public Administration & Development Studies, at the Catholic University of Bukavu(UCB). The research was entitled “Ethics in Public Administration in Bukavu. Towards a Philosophy of Development through Corruption Tackling”. The observation and exploration of the research site have been supported by a literature review dealing with ethics in public administration and development around the world, in DRC and in South Kivu. I made a profit of deductive approach in the treatment of collected data since it seemed easier to start from general points to particular ones, i.e. from the ethical crisis in given states to DRC and South Kivu and its public administration which might be understood as a microcosm of a failed state
Lipoleiomyoma is a rare benign soft tissue tumour which was first described in 1991. They usually occur within the abdominal cavity and retroperitoneum , although it may also be found in the subcutis and muscular fascia. Lipoleiomyoma is a tumour comprised of smooth muscle cells along with diffuse and scattered lobules of adipose tissue showing whorling at places. These tumours are seen in uterus as intramural growths. Most cases of lipoleiomyomas cannot be distinguished clinically from leiomyoma and to a large extent diagnosis can be made on the typical gross appearance & histopatholological examination of the tumour. Incidence of this neoplasm is estimated to be 0.03-0.2%. The majority of patients do not report any symptoms. Almost all of the cases of lipoleiomyoma have been reported in postmenopausal women.We report a case of uterine lipoleiomyoma in a 73 year old woman who presented with abdominal pain and postmenopausal spotting. A preoperative diagnosis of leiomyoma was made based on ultrasonography findings.
Role of Java in Natural Language Processing for Indian Regional Languages
Java is an object oriented language invented for embedded systems and extended to use for software development for the Internet. Java capabilities like platform independence, distributed application development, multithreaded application development makes it suitable for development of applications in modern scenario. Support for Unicode is an essential component to work with variety of language character sets other then English. Text processing packages provided in java libraries are much useful for Natural Language Processing tasks. There are variety of toolkits available to process english text for Natural Language Processing but no up to the mark tool is available for Indian Regional Language text processing. The researchers are working on their own from scratch to process Indian Language text using any programming language of their choice. This paper discusses suitability of java for Natural Language Processing from various aspects
An Economic Analysis Model Of The Effects Of Privatization Of Piraeus Port Aythority Into The Greek Economy
Dr. Stamatis Kontsas
The Greek port industry is characterized by the dominance of the public sector in port activities. The ownership of port assets, corporate port governance and services provisiondevelop under strict, direct or indirect state (ministerial) control. As a result Greece standsamong the few countries in which the port industry is fully controlled by the public sector. Yet, the context, in which contemporary ports operate impels for greater flexibility in portoperations. Several countries worldwide have responded implementing port devolution programs. The latter have been accompanied by an increasing participation of the privatesector in port operations. In several EU countries several port reforms devolved the portindustry, allowing for the participation of private companies.

*Y.D. Twumasi1, C. Kwang2, L. Boakye3, S. Agyei-Frimpong4, J.E. Oppong-Twum5
Increased population means increased demand for meat. Thus, more slaughter waste is expected to be generated. Knowing an estimated quantity of waste generation can help in planning and influence the type of management systems needed for now and for the future. There are no sufficient measures or facilities to treat wastewater for environmental safety. An investigative survey and quantitative approach were used to evaluate the combined waste generation for Kperisi and Kambali slaughter houses (abattoirs) and management of same in Wa Municipality of Upper West Region over a period of six months (172 days), where 5,848, 35% of all slaughtered livestock for study period were randomly selected and measured as an average representative for the respective types. Schaeffer’s formular was used to determine the live weight of 2,064 cattle, 2580 goats and 1204 sheep out of 16,856. Average live weights were 543.30 kg for cattle, 45.31 kg for goats and 56.42 kg for sheep generating 0.52 tons of blood, 0.38 tons of intestinal content, 0.29 tons of tissues and 0.58 tons of bone as daily abattoir waste, translating into 179.57 tons of blood, 130.38 tons of intestinal content, 100.17 tons of waste tissues and 196.77 tons of bone annually, based on standard waste per slaughter for these livestock. Annual waste of 606.88 metric tons and 1,300.035m3 of waste water are generated every year based on the study. The enormous volume of waste makes the issue of meat safety risks associated with its disposal an immediate, ongoing and serious one
In this paper, we share new data on links as a Google-ranking factor. We will demonstrate the continuing importance that links play in rankings. It’s well known that links were a major ranking factor in the early days of Google (e.g., http://infolab.stanford.edu/~backrub/google.html), but many speculate that their importance is declining (e.g.,http://www.searchmetrics.com/wp-content/uploads/Ranking-Factors-2015-Whitepaper-US.pdf) . However, we show that discussion of a decline in the importance of links as a ranking factor is grossly exaggerated. Indeed, links remain extremely powerful
Comparison of Turkish State Banks’ Performances via Multi-Criteria Performance Measurement Method
Asst. Prof. Dr. S. Öznur SAKINÇ
The banks are the most efficient aspects of countries. As efficiency and reliability of the banks increase, contributions of account owners to national economy increase as well. Increasing competitiveness and market share are important targets in banking sector as in other sectors. Banks need to increase their efficiency and productivity in order to enhance competitive capacity. Administrations are required to be aware of their strategies’ deficient, weak and strong aspects to develop their competitive capacity. Therefore, operations need to carry out performance analysis. According to the analysis results, revisions are made, new targets are aimed and strategies are taken if necessary. The market share of Turkish state banks in the banking sector is 30%. This share has not changed despite the development of the private sector. Moreover, these banks support areas which the private sectors do not support via credit. Thus, state banks constitute data set to be used in performance measurement methods in the current study. Four-years of financial data were used between the years of 2010-2013. Financial ratios such as liquidity, capital sufficiency, profitability and active quality determine these banks’ performance rank. In this study, banks’ performance measurement methods were carried out by using the Grey Relational Analysis, one of the multi-criteria performance methods, and TOPSIS, and the results were compared.
