Abstract:

The study of electrical characteristics of cells based on their biophysical properties, and their relevance with their status, has been a very useful non-invasive tool for disease diagnosis and treatment. A MEMS device is modelled and simulated for characterizing the electrical behavior of a type of breast cancer cells and colon cancer cells. The sample of highly invasive breast cancer cells (Hs 578T) was compared with the HT-29 colon cancer cells in the frequency range of 1 to 13 GHz. It is found that the rate of change of capacitance of the given colon cancer cells is less than that of the given highly metastatic breast cancer cells. This shows the difference in electrical characteristics of cells with different cell types and could be a basis for discriminating cell types and related metastasis.

Abstract:

This research study presents the assessment of Pakistani Government Services (websites, mob apps, and mob web versions) for visually impaired users by using automated tools. The selected services are related to different categories of Pakistani Government Services having websites, mob apps, and mob web versions. This study uses four automated tools (Wave, Achecker, Web accessibility, and Accessibility Scanner) for assessment in which three tools are for websites and one tool for mob apps and their respective mob web version. Wave, Achecker, and Web accessibility tools are used for the assessment of websites while the Accessibility Scanner tool is used for the assessment of mob apps and their respective mob web versions. These tools apply the accessibility guidelines for websites, mob apps, and mob web versions of WCAG 2.0 and 2.1. After the assessment, the results showed that the majority of the services violate the guidelines of WCAG 2.0 and 2.1 which needs immediate attention of developers and services departments to avoid discrimination between normal users and people with impairments.

Abstract:

During COVID-19 education system is very suffered not only by students but also by teachers. All universities, colleges, and schools adopted the E-Learning system during COVID-19. During this pandemic, we used the E-learning tools by the digital tools Zoom, and Google Meet. This paper is based on how we use the different technology models for the adoption of the E-Learning tools and adoption of E-learning tools affected the students during COVID-19 and also students are agree to adopt these tools. Questionnaires are prepared based on the adoption of E-learning tools and filled by the collegiate students. Learning organizations like Schools, colleges, and universities in India are presently based on old-style learning procedures and shadow the conservative location of face-to-face communication/lectures in a classroom. Most of the theoretical models are used earlier for the adoption of the E-learning sector ongoing combined learning, still, most of them are constructed with old steps. The determination of this study was to measure students’ observations of the usefulness of the technology for the acceptance of the model in the adoption of E-learning during the COVID-19 pandemic in rural areas in Punjab.

The discoveries propose that the adapted TAM is a good predictor of consumer behavior in using the Internet. We initiate that attitude in the direction of using the Internet performances as a strong conjecturer of interactive purpose to practice, and definite technique of Internet technologies. Future researchers can use the subsequent implementation to test how customers adopt and accept Internet-based presentations.
