This book presents a framework for converting multitudes of data streams available today including weather patterns, stock prices, social media, traffic information, and disease incidents into actionable insights based on situation recognition. It computationally defines the notion of situations as an abstraction of millions of data points into actionable insights, describes a computational framework to model and evaluate such situations and presents an open-source web-based system called EventShop to implement them without necessitating programming expertise. The book is useful for both practitioners and researchers working in the field of situation-aware computing. It acts as a primer for data-enthusiasts and information professionals interested in harnessing the value of heterogeneous big data for building diverse situation-based applications. It also can be used as a reference text by researchers working in areas as varied as database design, multimodel concept recognition, and middle-ware and ubiquitous computing to design and develop frameworks that allow users to create their own situation recognition frameworks.

Symposium K, 'Nanostructures, Thin Films and Bulk Oxides - Synthesis, Characterization and Applications' and Symposium RR, 'Solution Synthesis of Inorganic Functional Materials' were held April 21-25 at the 2014 MRS Spring Meeting in San Francisco, California. Oxide materials from bulk down to nanostructures are used for applications in microelectronics, communications, sensing, energy, catalysis, nanophotonics and optoelectronics. As the characteristic dimensions of oxide systems shrink into the nanometer range, there are increased technological challenges for synthesis, processing and characterization to ensure high uniformity, reproducibility and cost reduction. This symposium proceedings volume represents the recent advances in various areas of deposition, processing, characterization and integration of functional oxide materials, with particular emphasis on the relationship among the structure, composition, stability and functional properties. The papers are divided into three sections: (1) ZnO Thin Films and Nanostructures, (2) Multiferroics, Magnetism and Magnetic Materials and (3) Oxide Thin Films and Nanostructures.

Published in association with Anthropological Survey of India. The Anthropological Survey of India launched the People of India (POI) project on 2 October 1985 to generate an anthropological profile of all communities of India, the impact on them of change and development process and the links that bring them together. As part of this all-India project the first ever ethnographic survey of all communities of Uttar Pradesh (307) was taken up in collaboration with local scholars. The results of the survey were discussed at the workshops held at Meerut University in March 1990 and at regional workshops held in Dehradun in October 1987 and April-May 1991. Uttar Pradesh, the northern province which derives its identity from its unique geographical and historical situation, constitutes most of what was known as Madhya Desh or the Middle Country of Aryavarta and as Hindustan in the medieval period. The state is divided into three major eco-cultural zones, the mountainous region in the north, the plains in the middle and the hilly regions of the south and six sub-regions defined by dialects. Hindi is the official language widely spoken and there are 36 other languages, mostly belonging to the Indo-Aryan language family. The most populous state of India, Uttar Pradesh is the second largest state in terms of the number of communities (307) of whom the scheduled castes and minorities form a high proportion. The traits that stand out here are higher incidence of vegetarianism, junior and senior sororate, junior and senior levirate, textual and folk components of life cycle rituals, patriarchal norms, syncretism or a blending of religious traditions, etc. Uttaranchal known as Uttarakhand in the ancient texts was formed as a separate state on 8 November 2000. The hill people marked by preponderance of the Mongoloid traits, presence of the tribes, relative absence of untouchability, freedom for women in choice of mates and recognition of their property rights, hypergamy and hypogamy, fraternal polyandry, brideprice, etc.Politically a most important state, Uttar Pradesh remains economically backward with very low female literacy, high infant mortality and low per capita income. In recent years the state has witnessed a remarkable social revolution brought about by the upsurge of Backward Classes and Dalits and transfer of power to these groups through the democratic process. A cultural resurgence is underway.

Some of the most celebrated writers and critics examine issues central to the contemporary academic debate: issues of interface between political activism and aesthetic representation, the dominant discourse of mainstream or centre and the subaltern or marginalised voices, narratives of 'nations' in opposition to those of the 'nation', essentialism and universalism v. specificities and diversities, historical and spatial location of the author/reader, the insiders view v. the outsiderss, (ir)relevance of modern literary theory, the need to re-examine Western paradigms and search for alternative models, etc., Interrogation of hegemonic discourses -- literary and theoretical -- remains a central concern in the volume.

Now having performed over 15,000 open heart surgeries, more than nearly every surgeon in history, Dr. Singh reflects on his most memorable patients and his incredible personal life. Shared for the first time, these intimate and uplifting accounts, along with photos, will have you cheering for the underdog and appreciating the enduring determination of the human spirit.
The book is a comprehensive exposition of the law and regulation of public offering of corporate securities. It explains an otherwise elaborate and complex set of laws in a simple and articulate manner, with an emphasis on the concepts and principles that are its foundations and building blocks. The authors examine and explain (i)the foundational terms and concepts; (ii)evolution of regulation of public offerings in India; (iii) regulatory agencies that administer the securities laws; (iv)the legal setting of a public offer of corporate securities and the mechanics of the transaction; (v)the different forms and bases of liabilities; and (vi)the remedies available to investors. The book is not a static commentary on the statutory provisions, rules, and regulations governing public offering of corporate securities. Written in a linear fashion, it begins with the basic concepts, then each subsequent topic, section, and chapter logically builds on the earlier analysis, leading to a coherent study. However, the sections and chapters can also be read independently by those who may wish to refer to a specific topic.

The Anthropological Survey of India (ASI) conducted a survey of ongoing tribal movements in different parts of the country in 1976 and organised a Seminar in September that year to evaluate its findings. Among those who presented papers were anthropologists and other scholars including included historians, sociologists, political scientists and administrators. Besides there were tribal scholars who provided the insiders views and also social workers. All these papers were divided into two volumes: The first volume contains twenty-tour papers on the north-east and the second volume has twenty-five papers on movements elsewhere in the country. The ASI survey identified movements seeking political autonomy and formation of a state, agrarian and forest-based movements, socio-religious movements and movements based on script and language. The best organised of the movements of the first type is the Jharkhand Movement which is discussed in terms of its historical development, ideology, structure and regional dimensions. While few agrarian struggles were reported from the northern and southern parts of lndia, as many as five agrarian and forest-based struggles; which are closely linked, were reported from central India. However, it was sociocultural movements that held sway in this area. Five Bhagat type movements were reported, which highlighted some aspects of the Sanskritisation processes. More important was the set of four cultural movements based on script, language and religion seeking to assert and define tribal identity. Down south and in the islands, the tribes are too primitive, isolated and numerically small to organise movements on their own; however, incipient processes of political mobilisation were found at work among some of them.
