ABSTRACT

Mango processing waste (MPW) is an inexpensive and rich source of valuable substances. Hence, the mango kernel powder (MKP) from four cultivars (Chausa, Neelum, Barahmasi, and Dashehari) was characterized for the selection of the best cultivar. The MKP of the best cultivar (Dashehari) was analyzed for the profiling of polyphenols using LC-MS/MS in both modes of ionization (positive and negative) and indicated the presence of 50 compounds with specific retention times. After identification, gallic acid (GA), an important industrial compound, was targeted and purified followed by its confirmation using NMR (600 MHz) and HRMS. The antioxidant activity (IC50: 1.96 mu g/mL) of extracted GA proposes its use as a natural antioxidant in novel food formulations. Additionally, SARS-CoV-2 main protease (M-pro) was selected for molecular docking based virtual screening of seven major polyphenols (MKP), and the results were compared with hydroxychloroquine. The docking scores of targeted polyphenols revealed that three compounds (epicatechin, mangiferin, and quercetin) exhibited appreciable proteolytic activity against M-pro. In this way, it is a favorable approach toward environmental safety on the standpoint of green chemistry owing to the use of food processing waste and elimination of the waste dumping/composting problems.

ABSTRACT

In the recent times, digital financial services have seen exponential growth with expanded opportunities to individuals, especially women. In 2020, more than 240 million women, as compared to data of the year 2014, have a bank account and access to mobile payment services. However, compared to men, women are more likely to be poor and have less participation in the formal economy. They mostly find jobs in the informal economy. Therefore, there is a need to support women's financial status by providing them with appropriate infrastructure and resources and removing barriers to digital financial inclusion. In addition, the policymakers need to address the challenges in access to financial services for women, different laws and regulations, and limited access to technology. The study explores the challenges to women's access to online banking and policy options to strengthen women's participation in digital financial services. © 2022 IEEE.

ABSTRACT

In March 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-2019) epidemic a pandemic and whole education system came to a standstill. An immediate transformation from an offline mode to online mode of teaching learning was needed. Majority of teachers in India were not prepared for digital pedagogy. Regardless of serious difficulties and deep-rooted traditional teaching and learning methods, they quickly involved themselves in their professional learning virtually and adopted the online teaching methods to keep the system going on. Thus, the present study is focused to find the answers of the questions emerged out of this situation such as: (i) how teachers prepared themselves to come forward for gigantic initiative? (ii) How did they learn the digital online techniques? (iii) How the deficiencies of electronic gadgets, such as mobile phones and tablets were arranged in short span of time and made available to all the stakeholders? This is a qualitative study using phenomenological enquiry as an approach, participants were selected with purposive sampling technique and data were collected through the in-depth (semi-structured) interviews of 15 school teachers, 5 school heads, and 5 block education mentors from Punjab state of India. The findings of the study indicated that with continuous motivation, school teachers took the initiative to come forward for digital teaching and learning. Some teachers out of firm professional commitment managed to pursue their professional learning mainly through their own efforts. In addition, the Education Department provided online crash courses to teachers. The clusters of teachers having sound knowledge of technology collaboratively trained the teachers at block levels. Majority of teachers have their own gadgets but underprivileged sections were provided mobiles and tablets by the government and non-government agencies. A quick shift to virtual professional learning resulted in significant improvements in the learning outcomes of students. Hence, the study will motivate the teachers of other states to pursue virtual professional learning to update themselves. Additionally, it suggests that teachers ought to be part of forums, interest groups, and online professional communities to interact with peers and know how the rest of the world is doing with digital education.

ABSTRACT

The emergency situation due to the spread of COVID-19 has brought new requirements to Higher Education to continue the learning process. In musical ensemble class, performance practice is mandatory and plays a crucial role in musical education. The pandemic has forced all classes online, but for performance practice, it was mandatory to implement a new type of student-teacher interaction, such as e-tivity. It is a dynamic and interactive learning process led by a teacher online. The investigation of the efficiency of e-tivity for training musical ensemble skills was carried out in this paper. The research was tested through experimental work that took place at Kazan Federal University (Russian Federation). Due to a complete shift in the education process to distanced learning, all disciplines were studied online, including the specific musical courses that required collective work with face-to-face interaction. The curriculum of future music teachers includes an ensemble basic course to train students‘ musical performance skills in groups. For the study, 114 students from classes with instrumental and vocal ensembles were gathered and were organized by means of e-tivity based on several online tools, including Aiseesoft Video Converter Ultimate. This tool creates a video with a split-screen effect. By using such a tool, students created the video by following the teacher‘s instructions separately, and afterward they united their musical records in one video with a split-screen effect. At the end of the research work, musical artworks belonging to certain art styles, namely classical, Tatar and Russian folk music, and jazz, were collected. The analysis of the obtained data exhibited a high level of results in each criterion scale and effectiveness of the online work with musical ensembles. Students saw improvement in self-education by the means of creativity and critical self-assessment. The increasing frequency of students‘ listening of their own performance during the ensemble music-making by e-tivity brought advantages for the involuntary repetition process.

ABSTRACT

The eruption of chronic diseases such as COVID-19 has re-emphasized the need for people all over the world to have access to urgent healthcare. The latest pandemic has shown the flaws in the conventional healthcare system, namely that hospitals and clinics alone are incapable of dealing with such a crisis. Smart and integrated wearables are one of the main technologies that favor modern healthcare solutions (Godi, B., Viswanadham, S., Muttipati, A.S., Prakash Samantray, O., Gadiraju student, S.R.: E-Healthcare Monitoring System using IoT with Machine Learning Approaches. In: 2020 International Conference on Computer Science, Engineering and Applications (ICCSEA). pp. 1–5. IEEE, Gunupur, India (2020). https://doi.org/10.1109/ICCSEA49143.2020.9132937 ). These wearables can now gather data on an unparalleled scale thanks to advancements in the Internet of Things (IoT). Healthcare is among many fields that have been transformed by IoT, with the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) systems being introduced as an IoT branch. Patients with chronic diseases can be monitored remotely using IoMT systems. As a result, it can offer prompt diagnostics to patients, potentially saving their lives in the event of an emergency. However, protection in these vital systems is a major issue that has arisen as a result of their widespread use. This paper presents an overview of the technologies that are being used on IoMT as well as some security problems found in the literature. This survey will give an insight to the readers regarding the importance of security in healthcare and the different machine learning methods used to address that issue. © 2022, The Author(s), under exclusive license to Springer Nature Singapore Pte Ltd.

ABSTRACT

Advanced healthcare technologies, including artificial intelligence (AI), the Internet of Things (IoT), big data, and deep learning, are required to counter and even prepare for new illnesses. As a result, we are examining IA's capacity to control and manage COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and other emerging pandemics. Using COVID-19 or Coronavirus and Artificial Intelligence or AI keywords, the material may be quickly found in the PubMed database. COVID-19 AI's existing understanding was analyzed to see how it may be used to increase COVID-19 AI's overall usefulness. Seven COVID-19 pandemic-related AI applications have been documented. The technology has the potential to locate the infection, track it through the system, and make forecasts about when the virus will infiltrate the whole system again. Decision-making tools are desperately needed to help combat this outbreak and allow healthcare institutions to gather enough information in real time to halt its spread. The primary objective of AI is to mimic human thinking using an expert methodology. COVID-19 vaccination production may also play a critical part in making sense of and advocating a similar project. This kind of technology is helpful in screening because of its emphasis on discoveries. © 2021 IEEE.

ABSTRACT

The current pandemic situation due to Covid-19 has put every researcher on their toes to discover new methods (whether medicine or tools and techniques) to overcome the menace from the human population. The research focus has given the generation of enormous amount of both published literature and raw research data. The research impact analysis with the help of traditional method is a time-consuming process, resulted in choosing alternative methods of impact measurement - now popularly known as Altmetric. The article analyses social media metrics of Indian publications on Covid-19 through altmetric approaches. The data for the study has been taken from Scopus and Altmetric.com and analysis was carried out for different social media activities to calculate the Altmetric attention score for Indian published literatures. An analysis was also carried out to assess whether the alternative metrics have any correlation with the citation impact. It is found that correlation between some of the social media activities and citations is highly significant.
