WHAT ARE DIETARY SUPPLEMENTS?

Dietary supplements are products in the form of capsules, pills, liquids, powders or table used to add nutrients to your diet. A supplement either extracted from food sources or that are synthetic. Animals also can be a source of supplement ingredients, such as gelatine is derived from boiling hooves, stomachs, and other tissue linings, of pigs, cows and goats. It may be considered a food supplement or a therapeutic good, or potentially even a controlled substance.

Introduction:

Food, Clothing and Shelter are fundamentals needs of life. However, the rapid pace of urbanisation in many parts of the world has resulted in a severe shortage of housing. A person with low income or insufficient savings allows him to seek the option of rental housing. In spite of the government’s prime consideration to affordable housing, many poor households live in congested conditions, which indicates that housing is unaffordable for a large section of the population, be it ownership or rental.

The Model Tenancy Act, 2020 aims at getting rid of conflict of interests between tenants and landlords by addressing some of the major conflicting issues between the parties by bringing about some few important changes which occurred primarily due to the trust issues between landlords and tenants, low rental yields and lengthy dispute resolution mechanisms. The concept of the Rent Control Act was established in 1948. It is a set of rules that regulate the rental properties' rules and ensures that the rights of the tenants are not exploited by the landlords. The previous Act has harmed the real estate market in some areas. Many properties that were let out after 1948, were still paying the same amount of rent since 1948, disregarding inflation and increased property valuations.

Abstract:

Aerogel contains a skeletal structure that has 99% air by volume and in its initial stages, its structure strikes a great resemblance to a gel where water or other liquid is around 95 to 99 per cent by volume held inside the pores with size ranging from 2 to 50 nanometres. If the liquid inside the solid structure is isolated the structure that would be left will be a mesoporous material with low density and high surface area. When a silica gel is dried it leads to the formation of xerogel which happens to form when the liquid inside the pores is dried leaving the solid structure to come together and collapse onto itself. The problem with keeping the solid structure intact and rigid is solved by supercritical drying. Aerogel is a nano-porous and nano-structured class of material consisting of nanoparticles which when observed under an electron microscope would reveal anatomy similar to that of a sponge-like skeletal structure with interconnected particles thousand times smaller than that of a sponge.

CYBERCRIMES ASSOCIATED WITH DIGITAL IDENTITY

CYBERCRIMES ASSOCIATED WITH DIGITAL IDENTITY (#cybercrime)(#cyberlaws)(ipumusings)(#legalstudies)(#llb)


INTRODUCTION

A person’s identity is indispensable throughout his journey as a human being. From getting a job to travelling the world, his identification is unknowingly functional in one way or other. ‘Identity is a fundamental right and the same has been acknowledged in Article 6 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights that reads, “Everyone has the right to recognition everywhere as a person before the law”.¹ The ability to exhibit one’s identity and prove you are, who you say you are with certainty and in a manner that is recognised and trusted by the government is a fundamental prerequisite to accessing the most basic services. Without proving one’s identity, they may be restricted to participate in the services and activities in society as basic as healthcare, enrolment in schools, vote, etc. Today more than a billion people are denied these fundamental human rights because of not having a recognised identity. However, efforts are made by harnessing Information Technology (IT) power to resolve such crises digitally.

Q1: Why is there need to prepare data?

Answer: It is estimated that over 2.5 exabytes are created and collected by people and organisations each day. Here are the main reasons we need to prepare data are:


60% to 95% of the time is spent preparing the data. Some data preparation is needed for all mining tools.


The purpose of preparation is to transform data sets so that their information content is best exposed to the mining tool.


Error prediction rate should be lower (or the same) after the preparation as it was before.
