A Comparative Analysis of Psychological Stress Detection Methods
Shaikha Hajera, Mohammed Mahmood Ali

Abstract
Psychological Stress and Depression have been pinpointed repeatedly as significant issues contributing to the weakening of physical and mental health. Nowadays stress is considered as the biggest threat to individual’s wellbeing. However stress can be a positive aspect in our daily life, but too much stress can rather be harmful to physical and emotional healthiness where as managing it, is a major concern for populations around the world. Hence, there is significant importance to detect stress in its early stages, before it turns into severe problem. Thus, this work analyses and brings together recent research studies carried for automatic stress detection observing over the dimensions executed along the four main modalities, viz., Psychological, Physiological, Behavioral and Social Media Interaction modalities, along with appropriate measurements, in order to give hints about the most appropriate ways and means to be used for Psychological Stress Detection.

Analysis and Design of Pratt Truss by IS 800:2007 & IS 800:1984
Chetan Jaiprakash Chitte

Abstract
Trusses are triangular frame works, consisting of axially loaded members. They are more efficient in resisting external loads as the cross sections of all the members are nearly uniformly stressed. They are extensively used for larger spans. Truss members are regarded as being pinned joints. They are assumed to be joined together so as to transfer only the axial forces and not moments and shears from one member to the adjacent members. The loads are assumed to be acting only at the nodes of the trusses. External forces and reactions to those forces are considered to act only at the nodes and result in forces in the members that are either tensile or compressive. The top beams in a truss are called top chords and are typically in compression, the bottom beams are called bottom chords, and are typically in tension. This paper represents the analysis and design of Pratt Truss for 30m span by Limit State Method (IS 800:2007) and Working Stress Method (IS 800:1984). The data’s are calculated using Indian Standard code IS 875-1975 (part I, II & III), IS 800 – 2007 using limit state method, IS 800-2007 using working stress method and the section properties of the specimens are obtained using steel table. The structure is designed under Wind loading with fixed supported condition. The main aim is to provide the method which is economical, more load carrying capacity and high flexural strength. The studies gives conclusion that the limit state method design gives high load caring capacity with minimum quantity of steel required as compare to working stress method, which results in economical design of truss design.

Innovative Heuristics Modeling for Dynamic Supply Base Optimization
Jeyanthi Natarajan, Radhakrishnan Perumalsamy

Abstract
Efficient and effective management of supply-base throughout the supply chain significantly improves the ultimate service provided to the customer. Dynamic changes in demand patterns play a vital role in the optimization of supply-base throughout the supply chain in order to minimize the total supply chain cost. Efficient supply-base management is a complex process as it has to capture the dynamic nature of the requirements of Raw materials based on demand level occurring from multiple sources. In addition, the complexity of the problem increases when more number of, suppliers, products, distribution centers, agents and customers are involved in the process. In this paper, an innovative heuristic methodology is proposed to generate essential predictive analytics to optimize supply-base based on supplier quality, on time delivery and fill rate indices in alignment with the dynamic demand patterns emerging from multiple sources.

An Empirical Study on Work Belief of Generation X and Generation Y in Digital Era
Kothapalli Saileela, Swetha Thiruchanuru, Chette Srinivas Yadav

Abstract
The objective of this study was to check the ‘work Belief’ factors influencing employees of Generation-X and Generation-Y in India. Data was collected through a structured questionnaire given to 96 working employees in India. Data analysis was done through factor analysis. The study found that factors influencing Work Belief were work engagement, career development and team work. It was extended by comparing work Belief of Generation X and Generation Y. The findings of the study and the implications are discussed here.

Linkages among Selected Asian Stock Markets
Swetadri Samadder, Amalendu Bhunia

Abstract
We study the linkages among selected Asian stock markets using the time series data with the application of cointegration and causality tests. We find that our sample have very low association indicating potential gains from international diversifications. Our results show that Asian stock markets are interconnected in the long run and there exist a bidirectional as well as unidirectional causality among the Asian stock markets. Japan stock market occupies a highest proportion of shocks can be explained by its own innovation compared to other stock markets. It is also evident that shock to Srilanka and Bangladesh stock markets do not have any significant effect on any other stock markets.
