Abstract -
The latest trend in the technologies related to wireless communication has led to the emergence of several engineering designs for human requirements. The creeping interests in the wireless and GSM based projects, we came up with this idea of developing a simpler, multipurpose, cost-effective design to control the on-off street lights via short message service (SMS). Commands are sent to street light for night lighting Applications system through user mobile as data through SMS (Short Service Messages) providing a cost effective, reliable far reaching access to the user. The coded SMS is sent to the light relay system to base station controller that receives the messages, decodes the messages, initiates required automation operations and responds to the successful initiations by a reply to the user.

Abstract -
Genetic transposition is a process in which a segment of genetic material moves from one site on a chromosome to another site, which can either be on the same chromosome or on a different chromosome, within the cell. This movable sequence of DNA is called a transposable element, or transposon. Transposition is an important property of life because it creates variations in the genome, which, in turn, allow life to adapt to changes in the environment. Transposable elements are also important in biomedicine, because they may be a vehicle through which bacteria spread antibiotic resistance genes. The study of transposition is difficult because of the heterogeneity of the transposable elements, i.e., there are not only transposons with different structures, but with different modes and mechanisms of moving from one site to another. Because of its complex nature, transposition is difficult to grasp for many college students. In this paper, we use our platform “GeneAct” to develop an interactive computer program to facilitate and enhance the learning process. Several prokaryotic and eukaryotic transposons are used as examples in the program.

Abstract -
Effective and efficient public service delivery like healthcare services is very important in today’s society, especially in the rural areas. People in rural areas are expected to have access to public facilities at all times. However, these services are not always available when they are needed. This paper discusses the problems faced by rural areas of Mafikeng in South Africa (SA) when public and basic healthcare facilities like medical ambulance transport is needed during emergency situation. The challenges ranges from poor communication, poor road network and unstructured address to non-arrival of ambulances leading loss of lives that are preventable. This paper designed and implemented a system prototype using mobile application technologies to offer cost-effective services to patients during emergency situation. It is intended to reduce long queues in hospitals and long waiting periods for an ambulance via location-based services. By using this application, lives in the rural areas can be made easier and prevents loss of lives by providing timely response from the appropriate healthcare providers during emergencies.
