  A Hospital Information System (HIS) is designed to manage the information needed by health professionals to perform their jobs effectively and efficiently. Hospital Information Systems that are totally integrated and able to satisfy the information processing requirements of various functional blocks of a hospital are still in infancy. As the progress in ICT (Information and Communications Technology) continues at an ever-increasing pace, new applications of ICT are emerging in the domain of a HIS. These new applications have resulted in a massive data overload for a typical HIS of today. Work is therefore continueing to cope with the requirement in increased throughput and data processing. However these advancements concentrate on improving the existing structure of HIS. A HIS based on the already proven concept of Autonomous Decentralized System is proposed in this study. The proposed structure exhibits the potential to handle the performance requirements of future Information Systems in a Hospital setting in addition to the typical advantages of ADS namely the on-line maintenance, fault tolerance and on-line expansion. A software subsystem installed in each of the distributed computers has an autonomous function for self-management and is capable of coordinating with other subsystems. Each subsystem decides to accept data based on the content code of the message. The ADS concept has already been applied to a number of Information Processing/Control Applications successfully.

  This study was conducted to assess the influence of season on rooting ability of olive cuttings during the year 2000-2001. Leafy semi-hard wood cuttings were taken from 10 years old olive tree of cultivar "Leccino". The length of cuttings ranged from 10 to 12 cm, with at least 3 to 4 leaves/cutting. The cuttings were collected at fortnightly interval commencing from 15th February to Ist April, 15th July to Ist November and 15th October to Ist December, 2000. The basal portion of the cuttings were treated with talcum powder containing 0.3% Indolebutyric acid (IBA). The treated cuttings were planted in coarse sand in fiber glasshouse under mist. The maximum temperature and relative humidity in fiber glasshouse was 25 to 35 ° C and 75 to 85% respectively. The highest rooting percentage (82%) was obtained in spring season cuttings on 15th February which was significantly higher than those obtained on the other times of the year. The other times of the years showing promise were 15th July and Ist March, where 70 and 65% of rooting was obtained respectively. The cuttings planted on Ist April produced significantly higher number of roots/cutting (13.5) than rest of planting period of the year. The higher plant survival percentage (90 to 93%) was observed in the cuttings planted during 15 Oct to Ist December.

  The current zoning system appears unduly complicated and of little relevance to wheat breeding, as there is no evidence of distinct target areas. A broad but sparser sampling than the present system is recommended. Overall adaptation should be routinely assessed, by ranking and AMMI analyses, from the resultant smaller data sets each year. There is strong evidence of a flow of germplasm far superior than Pak-81, with respect to both yield and adaptation. It is suggested that same genotypes should be tested at least for two years on the same locations to get better results.

  An experiment was conducted in earthen ponds to observe the effect of varying levels of supplementary feed on the growth performance of Indian major carps and to evaluate the optimum feeding level for these species. Although the total fish production increased with increasing feeding levels, yet statistically there was an increase in weight gain up to 6% of feeding rate, but the difference between 6 and 8% feeding level was non significant. Feed to weight gain ratios (FCR) showed increasing trends, while feed conversion efficiency (FCE) decreased with increase in feeding levels. There was a highly positive correlation between feed added and weight gain in all treatments. Specific growth rate was maximum in Cirrhinus mrigala followed by Labeo rohita and Catla catla. Net profit was maximum at 6% feed supplementation.
