Derivation of Integrated Heckman-Conway-Maxwell-Poisson Model
The main objective of this paper was to illustrate derivation of Heckman-Conway-Maxwell-Poisson ‘HeckCOMPoisson’ model. HeckCOMPoisson model is an integrated model from Heckman and Conway-Maxwell-Poisson model. HeckCOMPoisson was developed to handle count model with selection. The model perform perfectly in terms of Goodness-of-Fit (GOF) and in prediction of count data with selection and handling under-dispersion and over-dispersion experienced in count data. HeckCOMPoisson distribution is flexible and gives robust models for dispersed counts.
Application of Heckman-Conway-Maxwell-Poisson Model for Analysing Corruption
The main objective of this paper was to illustrate application of Heckman-Conway-Maxwell-Poisson ‘HeckCOMPoisson’ model for analyzing corruption. HeckCOMPoisson model is an integrated model from Heckman and Conway-Maxwell-Poisson model. HeckCOMPoisson was developed to handle count model with selection. The specific objective of this paper was to test the fitness of the integrated HeckCOMPoisson model in predicting number of people paying bribes. Corruption is among the most serious problems of the societies because it destroys the democratic progress by creating unemployment, increasing poverty level among other negative effects. To achieve the objective of this paper, summary tables were created, graphs were drawn and the results discussed extensively. This paper used the corruption data of 2019 from Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) of Kenya. The results of this study showed that HeckCOMPoisson perform perfectly in terms of Goodness-of-Fit (GOF) and in prediction of count data with selection and handling under-dispersion and over-dispersion experienced in count data. The results of this study proved that HeckCOMPoisson distribution is flexible and gives robust models for dispersed counts. By parametrizing HeckCOMPoisson distributions via the mean, variance and model prediction, this study placed HeckCOMPoisson models on the same level of interpretability and parsimony as other popular, competing count models.
Importance of Forming the Soft Skills Club at Entry Level of Engineering Graduation for Rural Indian Students
Soft Skills are very essential now-a-days. It is becoming the demand of corporate sector that whoever they hire for job position, he must have some basic soft skills such as Inter Communication skill, Intra Communication skill, Teamwork, Leadership skill, Adaptability skill and so on. But it is the fact that there is less awareness among rural students about these soft skills and which becomes the main reason that they get set back most of the time when they appear for campus drives. They meet difficulties to acquire these soft skills because of lack of trainings and guidance found especially in rural engineering colleges of India. Therefore, it can be a big task and challenge to the rural engineering students to get into the required processes of skill acquisition and all with the lack of communicative environment in both places school or colleges and home as well. It becomes really barrier to students when time comes to them to present something in front of an audience, while delivering seminar to other people or interacting with professors or colleagues or other professionals at all levels that becomes the main cause to produce inferiority complex about acquisition of soft skills. Because of such terrific situations, they meet failure in getting recruited in campus selection or meet failure in facing an interview or any other activities which are conducted to test their soft skills. Such poor competent students easily meet failure in achieving the higher expectations of corporate world afterwards. Therefore, in order to resolve such issues of students who belong to rural sector-based engineering colleges, there is a need to produce some platforms like Soft Skill Club under which some speaking-based activities, group activities, presentations can be conducted to improve their communicative competence, stage daring, body language and personality traits as well. Therefore, this research paper highlights the importance of Soft Skill Club to the First Year of Engineering but rural students in India.
Patient Monitoring System
The increased use of mobile technologies and smart devices in the health zone has brought on extraordinary effect on the world’s critical care. Health specialists and doctors are using these technologies to create critical change in medicinal services during clinical settings. Likewise, many users are being served from the upsides of the M-Health (Mobile Health) applications and E-Health (social insurance upheld by ICT) to enhance, help and assist their well-being. The Internet of things is progressively permitting to coordinate gadgets fit for associating with the Internet and gives data on the condition of health of patients and give data continuously to specialists who help. The main aim of this ‘Patient Monitoring System’ is to build up a system fit for observing vital body signs, for example, body temperature, heart rate, pulse oximetry. The System is additionally equipped for fall detection and sleep pattern analysis. To accomplish this, the system involves many sensors to screen fundamental signs that can be interfaced to the doctor’s mobile or the web. The gadget will exchange the readings from the sensor to cloud remotely and the information gathered will be accessible for analysis progressively. It has the capacity of reading and transmitting emergency signs to the cloud and then to doctor’s web portal or to Doctor’s Smartphone. These readings can be utilized to recognize the health state of the patient and as an alert system against the emergency health condition.
Performance Comparison of Progressive Web Apps and Regular Websites for Website Marketing Strategy
Website is important in marketing strategy. Some companies build websites by utilizing website technology to optimize marketing strategies, including using Progressive Web Apps or PWA. This study was conducted to compare the performance of two websites, one website using PWA technology and one website not using PWA. The aspects tested in this research are SEO Friendly, Onload Time, Fully Loaded Time, Offline Mode, and Installable. Testing using tools from GTMetrix and Chrome Developer Tools, namely Network, Application, and Lighthouse. Based on the test results, it appears that websites with PWA technology are superior in terms of SEO friendly.
Awareness of Orthodontic Treatment in The Management of Malocclusion Amongst Selected Higher Institution Students in Imo State, Nigeria.
Background: Dental exposure has been known to be a stimulating factor for orthodontic awareness and treatment. In spite of the paucity, students in higher institutions of learning would have had some level of exposure, and this is what we intend to assess.
Materials and methods: A cross-sectional questionnaire-based study was conducted among selected higher institutions students in Owerri, Imo state, Nigeria. It is a 12-question questionnaire that was structured into three sections using general dental awareness as a prelude to questions on orthodontic awareness. It was then distributed among the respondents and the results was collected and statistically analyzed using Microsoft excel.
Results: The females know about orthodontic braces than the males, unlike dental visits where they both tend to have the same. Generally, the awareness of malocclusion and the awareness of the treatment of malocclusion was generally poor, asides two questions which larger percentage (above 70%) of the respondents claim to know. The result was statistically significant with p<0.00001.
Conclusion: We concluded that the students are not adequately aware of malocclusion and its treatment. Hence, the significance of this study would help healthcare analyst and oral healthcare professionals in educating the populace, including higher institution students.
