Security Framework for Android Malware Detection using Graph and ML based Techniques
With the advent of affordable Android smartphones, the users have significantly increased to 85% of total market share [IDC, 2017]. Given relaxed terms to become an android application developer, they are abusing the platform for user data collection through benign looking malicious applications. Google Play Protect does a scan to detect the authenticity and genuineness of the application, however fails to detect the intended use of such applications. We propose a framework to distinguish between a benign and malicious android application using comprehensive data flow analysis coupled with machine learning based malware classification. The system is complemented with the two techniques to detect benignness and maliciousness of an android application. We utilized the Androzoo and derbin dataset for building the model. The system found to be effective.

Industry 4.0: Data Security on Industrial IoT using Hybrid Block Cipher Mode
A collection of hardware equipments are connected and work together using internet is called Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and also called smart industry or industry 4.0. Manufacturing is the essential process in Industrial IoT to produce the product using automation technology. Automations are done by the support of hardware equipments and software. These hardware systems are called cyber physical systems. These systems are combined with computation, networking and physical processes. They can manipulate the data to produce the product or some other process. So cyber attacks are possible in the cyber physical systems. Securing the data is the essential to thwart the cyber attack. Most of the cryptographic algorithms secure the data from various attacks. When we use brute force attack or crypt analysis some algorithms are breakable. Hence development of new cryptographic algorithm from two or more algorithms is called hybrid algorithm. Familiar block cipher algorithms are like cipher block chaining mode and output feedback mode. Some portions of those algorithms are concatenated as a single algorithm in this proposal. Here, this paper gives the detail about the data security on industrial Internet of Things using hybrid block cipher mode.

Science versus Popular-Science: An Overview on Fitness and Health Consciousness in the Contemporary Tirunelveli Society
Tamil people in the past have always had an appreciation for a fleshy physic. The girth of the hip area determined the economic status of an individual – particularly men – in the gaze of others. Height and broadness of shoulders occupied the next levels of priority. Though skin complexion did not receive much importance it can be understood that darker skins were less preferred. A person with a big belly, tall physic, and broad body could alone sport a suitably big whisker and for all of these, one should have had the economic status to eat well and take rest which was possible only for people with some command in the economic resources. In a context of a two-person meeting after a considerable period of a time gap, both express their mutual care by registering their disappointment over the other person having gone thin though in actuality there could not have been any change in the physic. The traditional advice made by persons not only in cases like these but also in the usual pattern of counseling from elders to young people was to ‘eat well’. This apart, the orientation towards ‘food’ should also be accounted for. In a society wherein the predominant number of people was dependent on agriculture wasting of food was severely regretted. If one was served with food, he should complete the quantum he was offered irrespective of whether he was hungry or not as well as whether or not he liked or disliked the taste.

An Economic Study Of Agricultural Farmers Affected By Ockhi Cyclone In Nagercoil Of Kanyakumari District
A cyclone is a large scale air mass that rotates around a strong center of low atmospheric pressure .Cyclones are characterized by inward spiraling winds that rotate about a zone of low pressure. The largest low-pressure systems are polar vortices and extra tropical cyclones of the largest scale (the synoptic scale). Warm-core cyclones such as tropical cyclones and subtropical cyclones also lie within the synoptic scale. Mesocyclones, tornadoes and dust devils lie within the smaller mesoscale. Upper level cyclones can exist without the presence of a surface low, and can pinch off from the base of the tropical upper tropospheric trough during the summer months in the Northern Hemisphere. Cyclones have also been seen on extraterrestrial planets, such as Mars and Neptune. Cyclogenesis describes the process of cyclone formation and intensification. Extra tropical cyclones begin as waves in large regions of enhanced mid-latitude temperature contrasts called baroclinic zones. These zones contract and form weather fronts as the cyclonic circulation closes and intensifies. Later in their life cycle, extra tropical cyclones occlude as cold air masses undercut the warmer air and become cold core systems. A cyclone's track is guided over the course of its 2 to 6 day life cycle by the steering flow of the subtropical jet stream.This paper shows the highlights of the cyclone.
Land Use Change Impact on Flood Reduction Capacity of Lake Sentani, Jayapura
Flood is a natural phenomenon that occurs in certain places due to natural causes and human activities. However, the imbalance in hydrological cycle will cause the flood to do damage, both materially and non-materially. Therefore, it is important to control the occurrence and magnitude. Human activities that can cause such imbalance, one of them, is land use change. Many areas of pervious area are shifting into impervious areas, which will increase the amount of surface runoff generated. This research will cover about how land use changes over the year can influence the surface runoff generated in a certain area. This research is conducted in Sentani watershed, Jayapura, Papua, Indonesia. Calculation with the aid of ArcMap 10.1 and WinTR-20 results in around 6% changes in flood discharge in the outlet for land use in year 2007, 2010, 2012, and 2016.

Wetland as Revitalization Pond at Urban Area Based on The Ecohydrology Concept
Universitas Indonesia (UI) has a campus in Depok with six ponds, five of which are artificial ponds and one of the catchment area that operates in the central Ciliwung Sub-watershed. The ponds (Kenanga, Agathis, Mahoni, Puspa, Ulin and Salam "KAMPUS") are designed as one of the catchment area, referring to Presidential Decree No. 32/1990 about the management of protected areas, ponds as catchment areas, flood controllers, and groundwater runoff. However, due to uncontrolled development in the catchment area of the UI pond system, KAMPUS cascade ponds transformed into a "toilet" which accommodates the liquid and solid waste of its catchment area. The mechanism designed for management in the KAMPUS cascade pond system is to utilize the cascade pond as a stabilization pond (improving water quality). One of them is utilizing Agathis cascade pond as a constructed stormwater wetland system, which is a pretreatment for the inflow to the KAMPUS pond system. This constructed wetland design is planned with several mechanisms: precipitation, filtering, chemical process by utilizing plants for absorption, nutrient transformation and eliminating pathogens. The result shows that this constructed wetland gives the water quality improvement percentage up to 87%. Water quality on effluent conforms with the water quality standards for irrigation and planting (grade 4) referring to Government Regulation No. 82/2001 about Water Quality Management and Pollution Control.

A Machine Learning Approach to Distinguish Parkinson’s Disease(PD)Patient’s with Shuffling Gait from Older Adults based on Gait signals using 3D Motion Analysis
In recent times the adverse impact of Parkinson’s disease(PD) getting worse and worse with the increasing rate of old age population through out the world. This disease is the second common neurological disorder and has a tremendous economical and social impact because the cost associated with the healthcare as well as service is extremely high. The diagnosis process of this disease mostly done by closely observing the patient in the clinic as well as using the rating scale. However, this kind of diagnosis is subjective in nature and usually takes long time and assessment of this disease is complicated and cannot replicated in other patients. This kind of diagnosis method is also not suitable for the early detection of the PD. So, with this shortcoming it is necessary to find a suitable method that can automate the process as well as useful in the initial phase of diagnosis of PD. Recently with the invention of motion capture equipment’s and artificial intelligent technique, the feasibility of the objective nature-based diagnosis is getting lot of attention, especially the objective quantification of gait parameters. Shuffling of gait is one of the important characteristics of PD patients and it is usually defined y shorter stride length and low foot clearance. In this study a novel method is proposed to quantify the gait parameters using 3D motion captures and then various feature selection algorithm have used to select the effective features and finally machine learning based techniques were implemented to automate the classification process of two groups composed of PD patients as well as older adults. We have found maximum accuracy of 98.54 %by using support vector machine(SVM) classifier with radial basis function coupled with minimum redundancy and maximum relevance (MRMR) algorithm-based feature set. Our result showed that the proposed method can help the clinicians to distinguish PD patients from the older adults. This method helps to detect the PD at early stage.
