Vote From Any Where Through Web Services
Title: Vote From Any Where Through Web Services. Domain: Real Time and Data Mining ABSTRACT During election period the percentage of casting of vote is becoming less day by day. The Indian citizens those who are living in other countries can't cast their vote, those whose are sick, old aged and virtually handicap. Each and every person has their own right to vote as an Indian citizen and it is also a rule followed in the country. We give an opportunity to the people those who are not able to vote. Our application relies both on security and integrated web services to vote from anywhere with all necessary proofs such as voter id, photo, adharcard, etc. EXISTING SYSTEM The system used in existing is ballot machine which has been introduced to reduce the paper work, human resources and fake vote. You might have been heard about re-polling process because of electronic voting machine. The people have to travel to the polling booth and cast their vote. PROPOSED SYSTEM Our application has service call enabled only to the available pooling city, state or country on that particular date and to that particular hour. The voter can cast only one vote after that the session get closed immediately, and he can't able to cast using any one of the proof. The counting process and monitoring process are managed by the administrator; the counting is done after casting of vote has been finished within an hour. The system is more efficient and will have all kind of security technique such as cryptography, etc. Key Features: 1. Administrator The administrator is responsible for the management of online voting system. Both the voter id and nomination for are verified by the administrator and for only authorized users the voter id and nomination receipt is issued. 2.User In user module the user is allowed to apply for voter id and after the approval of the administrator only the voter id is issued. The finger print of each and every user is scanned and saved in the database. The user details can be changed. 3.Voting In voting module only the authorized user are allowed to vote after verifying their finger print. The user is allowed to vote only once and after one vote is registered the session gets terminated by itself automatically. 4.Nomination In nomination module the application of nomination for can be enrolled and after the approval of the administrator the receipt of nomination can be issued and the nominator get the enrollment. 5.Counting In counting module the counting of voted are done and the counting is carried out by the administrator after login.

Chromatin Structure and the Control of Gene Expression
Chromatin Structure and the Control of Gene Expression Air date: Wednesday, October 30, 2013, 3:00:00 PM Description: Wednesday Afternoon Lecture Series Annual George Khoury Lecture The organization of eukaryotic genomes in chromatin dynamically regulates the access of chromosomal proteins to DNA and provides a general mechanism for the control of genome activities. Nucleosomes are the primary units of chromatin, consisting of 147 bp of DNA wrapped around an octameric core of histones H2A, H2B, H3, and H4. While most nucleosomes contain so-called canonical histones that comprise the bulk of eukaryotic chromatin, there exist nonallelic, variant histones that mark genomic regions with special functions. The conserved histone variant H2A.Z is part of a universal chromatin architecture created at promoters and enhancers genome-wide, from yeast to human. H2A.Z is important for critical chromosome activities, including gene expression and DNA repair. In humans, H2A.Z controls the expression of developmental and cell cycle regulators, and H2A.Z overexpression is associated with cancer progression. These functions of histone H2A.Z appear to be linked to the increased dynamics of H2A.Z-containing nucleosomes. The Wu laboratory investigates the biochemical basis for histone H2A.Z exchange using the budding yeast model organism. We have identified the yeast SWR1 ATP-dependent chromatin remodeling complex as the responsible enzyme. In a purified system, SWR1 removes H2A-H2B dimers from nucleosomes and deposits free H2A.Z-H2B dimers in an ATP-dependent manner. Homologous enzymes have since been characterized in mammalian systems. How does SWR1 recognize promoters and enhancers genome-wide? Recently, they found that recognition of DNase hypersensitive, nucleosome-free DNA is the dominant mechanism over histone acetylation in targeting SWR1 to promoters globally. Such 'hierarchical cooperation' between DNA and histone signals may provide a general model that unites classical gene regulation by DNA-binding factors with ATP-dependent nucleosome remodeling and post-translational histone modifications. Once targeted to promoters, SWR1 activation requires further recognition of both the canonical nucleosome and the H2A.Z-H2B dimer, a process that assures self-termination of the exchange reaction. The Wu lab is continuing studies to elucidate molecular details of the mechanism of histone H2A.Z replacement.

AWS re: Invent BDT 205: Solving Big Problems with Big Data
The problem of big data is not only that it is capacious, but that it is also heterogeneous, dirty, and growing even faster than the improvement in disk capacity. One challenge is then to derive value by answering ad hoc questions in a timely fashion that justifies the preservation of big data. A group of us from databases, machine learning, networking, and systems just started a new lab at University of California, Berkeley, to tackle this challenge. The AMPLab is working at the intersection of three trends: statistical machine learning (Algorithms), cloud computing (Machines), and crowdsourcing (People). One of the driving applications for the AMP Lab is cancer genomics. Over the next several years, gene-sequencing technologies will begin to make their way into medicine, offering the most complex tests available. This advance brings a new type of data with tremendous promise to help elucidate physiological and pathological functions within the body, as well as to make more informed decisions about patient care. The cost of genome sequencing is projected to fall within range where it may be used for diagnostic and treatment purposes within the next two years. Due to the overwhelming amount of information returned by these tests, direct human interpretation is not feasible, and therefore will have to be guided by computational methods and visualization. The use of sequencing information has debuted in cancer. A provocative hypothesis is that the massive growth of online digital descriptions of tumor cell genomes will enable computer scientists to help make breakthroughs in cancer treatment, perhaps even within the next few years. Learn about the frightening fractions of cancer, dramatic speedups in genomic data processing by using cloud computing, and the blurring between opportunity and obligation when dealing with a problem that affects the lives of millions of people.

[DEFCON 21] Predicting Susceptibility to Social Bots on Twitter
Predicting Susceptibility to Social Bots on Twitter Speakers: Chris Sumner Randall Wald Are some Twitter users more naturally predisposed to interacting with social bots and can social bot creators exploit this knowledge to increase the odds of getting a response? Social bots are growing more intelligent, moving beyond simple reposts of boilerplate ad content to attempt to engage with users and then exploit this trust to promote a product or agenda. While much research has focused on how to identify such bots in the process of spam detection, less research has looked at the other side of the question—detecting users likely to be fooled by bots. This talk provides a summary of research and developments in the social bots arms race before sharing results of our experiment examining user susceptibility. We find that a users' Klout score, friends count, and followers count are most predictive of whether a user will interact with a bot, and that the Random Forest algorithm produces the best classifier, when used in conjunction with appropriate feature ranking algorithms. With this knowledge, social bot creators could significantly reduce the chance of targeting users who are unlikely to interact. Users displaying higher levels of extroversion were more likely to interact with our social bots. This may have implications for eLearning based awareness training as users higher in extraversion have been shown to perform better when they have greater control of the learning environment. Overall, these results show promise for helping understand which users are most vulnerable to social bots. Chris Sumner (@thesuggmeister) is a co-founder of the not-for-profit Online Privacy Foundation who actively participate in and contribute to the emerging discipline of Social Media Behavioral Residue research. Chris has previously spoken on this area of research at conferences including BlackHat, DEF CON, 44CON, the European Conference on Personality and the International Conference on Machine Learning and Applications. Randall Wald is a postdoctoral researcher investigating data mining and machine learning at Florida Atlantic University. Following his BS in Biology from the California Institute of Technology, Randall chose to shift his focus to computer science, applying his domain knowledge towards bioinformatics and building models to predict disease. He also studies machine learning for other domains, including machine condition monitoring, software engineering, and social networking.

Socio-PLT: Quantitative and Social Theories for Programming Language Adoption
Google Tech Talk November 14, 2012 Presented by Leo A. Meyerovich ABSTRACT Why do some programming languages succeed and others fail? We have been tackling this basic question in two ways: First, I will discuss theories from the social sciences about the adoption process and what that means for designing new languages. For example, the Haskell and type systems communities may be suffering some of the same challenges that the public health community did for safe sex advocacy in the early nineties. Second, informed by these studies, we gathered and quantitatively analyzed several large datasets, including over 200,000 SourceForge projects and multiple surveys of 1,000-13,000 programmers. We find that social factors usually outweigh intrinsic technical ones. In fact, the larger the organization, the more important social factors become. I'll report on additional surprises about the popularity, perception, and learning of programming languages. Taken together, our results help explain the process by which languages become adopted or not. Speaker Info: Leo A. Meyerovich is a Ph.D. candidate at UC Berkeley researching browser parallelization, the Superconductor language for visualizing big data, and language adoption. Earlier, he worked on security extensions for JavaScript and the Flapjax language for functional reactive web programming (http://www.flapjax-lang.org).

The Emerging Network of Data for Understanding the Interactions of Genes and Drugs
Air date: Wednesday, October 12, 2011, 3:00:00 PM Time displayed is Eastern Time, Washington DC Local Category: Wednesday Afternoon Lectures Description: The last two decades have provided a flood of data relevant to drug action--from both basic science and clinical sources. These data provide molecular, cellular, tissue, organism and population-level information about how drugs work to create both efficacy and adverse events. Any single data source is imperfect, but integration of these sources can yield remarkable and practical discoveries as well as opportunities for application. In this talk, I describe our recent work using informatics technologies to (1) assess the potential impact of pharmacogenomics in the era of personal genome sequencing, (2) analyze the corpus of published medical literature to extract potentially novel drug interactions along with putative mechanisms, and (3) discover a novel drug-drug interaction that may affect up to 1 million Americans. Together these efforts suggest that informatics-driven science can not only create strong hypotheses, but can provide initial validation, and suggest very focused inexpensive experimental validations.

Education and Training Across the Digital Curation Spectrum with Dr. Margaret Hedstrom
On Thursday, June 15th, the Smithsonian Libraries, Smithsonian Institution Archives and Smithsonian Office of the Chief Information Officer hosted Dr. Hedstrom, the Robert M. Warner Collegiate Professor of Information Professor of Information at the University of Michigan School of Information, as part of this Information Matters lecture series. In this talk, "Education and Training Across the Digital Curation Spectrum", Dr. Hedstrom will situates digital curation along a spectrum from a highly specialized profession focusing exclusively on selection, “organization,” access and preservation of digital objects to a basic set of skills in identifying, evaluating, keeping and using digital information that every user of digital technologies should possess. The talk covers the mixture of curation knowledge, domain knowledge, and technology skills that professional curators need, but it also discusses the significance of broad “digital literacy” for achieving effective, scalable and affordable approaches to digital collections. Finally, she discusses new modes of teaching and learning this new set of skills.

Genetic testing for risk of Heart Disease: fact or fiction? (23 Feb 2012)
Prof Steve Humphries (UCL Institute of Human Genetics and Health) An individual's risk of Coronary Heart Disease is currently based on classical risk factors such as age, gender, blood pressure, smoking habits and obesity. However, most heart attacks occur in individuals with only average classical risk factors. In this lecture, Professor Humphries will discuss how family history of Heart Disease is also an important predictor, and how identifying specific genes and DNA variants within family history could help doctors offer lifestyle and drug advice to individuals. This lecture with then focus on the need for researchers to explore different ways of presenting information about genetic risk, to find approaches that minimise a sense of fatalism and maximise motivation for behaviour change.

Participant Engagement and Health Equity Workshop - July 1-2, 2015 - Day 2
On July 1-2, the Precision Medicine Initiative (PMI) Working Group of the Advisory Committee to the NIH Director (ACD) held a public workshop on participant engagement and health equity as they relate to the proposed PMI national research cohort. The workshop focused on the design of an inclusive cohort, building and sustaining public trust, direct-from-participant data provision, and effective and active participant engagement characteristics of a national research cohort of one million or more volunteers. The workshop built on the big science questions developed during the April 28–29 workshop at the NIH, digital health data perspectives shared during the May 28-29 workshop, and information on the strategies to address community engagement and health disparities in a large national research cohort gathered from stakeholders through a request for information. The workshop took place on the National Institutes of Health campus in Bethesda, Maryland, and was videocast. A full list of workshops being convened by the ACD PMI Working Group is available on the Events page of the NIH PMI website.

SUMMARY ======= Central Asia stretches from the Caspian Sea in the west to China in the east and from Afghanistan in the south to Russia in the north. The region consists of the former Soviet republics of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan. It is also colloquially referred to as "the stans" as the countries generally considered to be within the region all have names ending with the Persian suffix "-stan", meaning "land of".Central Asia has a population of about 105 million, consisting of five republics: Kazakhstan (pop. 17,987,736), Kyrgyzstan (5,955,734), Tajikistan (8,734,951), Turkmenistan (5,662,544), and Uzbekistan (31,446,795). Afghanistan (34,656,032), which is a part of South Asia, is also sometimes included in Central Asia.Central Asia has historically been closely tied to its nomadic peoples and the Silk Road. It has acted as a crossroads for the movement of people, goods, and ideas between Europe, Western Asia, South Asia, and East Asia. The Silk Road connected Muslim lands with the people of Europe, India, and China. This crossroads position has intensified the conflict between tribalism and traditionalism and modernization.In pre-Islamic and early Islamic times, Central Asia was predominantly Iranian, populated by Eastern Iranian-speaking Bactrians, Sogdians, Chorasmians and the semi-nomadic Scythians and Dahae. After expansion by Turkic peoples, Central Asia also became the homeland for the Kazakhs, Uzbeks, Tatars, Turkmen, Kyrgyz, and Uyghurs; Turkic languages largely replaced the Iranian languages spoken in the area. From the mid-19th century until almost the end of the 20th century, most of Central Asia was part of the Russian Empire and later the Soviet Union, both Slavic-majority countries, and the five former Soviet "-stans" are still home to about 7 million ethnic Russians and 500,000 Ukrainians.
