Concrete contributes to green house gas emission and its production alone contributes to 102 mega tones of&nbsp; global CO2 production. Advancement in construction technologies like Tunnel formwork and Aluminium formwork has bought significant changes over conventional construction process. These technologies and advancement have replaced all the building elements with concrete, which eventually will result in growing demand for concrete production and CO2 emitted along with it. Before introduction of concrete, load bearing structures were built with masonry width 450mm and above but after its introduction only frame structure of the building were built in concrete except facade and internal walls, which were built with mud bricks, but in later stage with such an advancement in construction trends and technologies all the components of buildings are built in concrete including external and internal walls. If all the components of buildings are made in concrete, it will ultimately lead to excess concrete production and thus emitting maximum green house gas which will reflect in rising global temperature thus causing sea level rise up due to conversion of&nbsp; ice glaciers into water. This research paper emphasis on using carbon negative building blocks i.e&nbsp; Hempcrete blocks to absorb carbon from the atmosphere thus decreasing the global temperature and to have control over the disasters caused such as floods due to rising sea level. To mitigate ever increasing green house gases, use of sustainable material which is carbon negative is mandatory for building low rise as well as high rise towers. Carbon absorbing bio composite material which is hempcrete is advised to be used to sequester existing CO2 from the environment.</p> Vineet.V.Bodhe Copyright (c) 2021 2021-09-01 2021-09-01 8 9 1 5 PRINCIPALS’ INTERACTIONAL JUSTICE AS CORRELATES OF TEACHERS’ ORGANIZATIONAL CITIZENSHIP BEHAVIOUR IN SECONDARY SCHOOLS IN DELTA STATE http://ijrjournal.com/index.php/ijr/article/view/149 <p><em>The study investigated principals’ interactional justice as correlates of teachers’ organizational citizenship behaviour in secondary schools in Delta State.

This represented different thermal maturity levels. Other obtained groups included Bisaccate pollen and Monolete spores, Monosaccate, pollen, Alete/Inaperturate &amp; Colpat/Sulcate pollen. Presence of Bisaccate pollen was lower than Trilete spores.A fluvial to shallow marine environment in Khisor Range, Pakistan included the Datta formation as represented by the discovery of Pteridophytic spores.</p> Arooj Sehar Rashid Rasheed Copyright (c) 2021 2021-09-08 2021-09-08 8 9 327 347 Analysis of the Increase in Prices of Masks and Handsanitizers at the Beginning of a Pandemic in the Perspective of Economic Law http://ijrjournal.com/index.php/ijr/article/view/173 <p><em>The existence of the Covid-19 pandemic has harmed the education sector, the economy, and in particular on health. The health sector has to face many challenges, such as obstacles in handling patients infected with Sars Cov 2 in hospitals that lack beds, to the limited number of masks that make it soar. In the end, this has been exploited by irresponsible people to hoard masks and sell them at higher prices. This case is very detrimental to all parties, especially the people who need it. The study method used is descriptive qualitative research by reviewing the laws governing health as an answer to the government's efforts to intervene in entrepreneurs, create price balances in the market, to preventive policies such as conducting raids on hoarding masks. This aims to control the amount of production and market prices so that they can provide the community with maximum service, in this case, the fulfillment of basic logistics needs, especially masks to protect themselves.</em></p> <p><em>.</em></p> Patria Widianto Copyright (c) 2021 2021-09-08 2021-09-08 8 9 348 353 Software Testing Methods, Tools and Techniques http://ijrjournal.com/index.php/ijr/article/view/174 <p>In this progress report main testing methods and techniques are shortly described. The purpose of this paper is to offer visibility in to the software testing process using measurements. The focus of this thesis is at the possible measurements in the Software Test Plans, Methods and Techniques of the System for testing level using the Software Development Process. In this paper we conducted a literature study on all testing techniques together that are related to both Black and White box testing techniques. The overall aim of this literature study is to clearly explain different testing techniques along with a case situation and their advantages. The aims and objectives of the research work is to investigate testing methods and techniques for support provided to the test planning and test design activities for Concurrent Development Validation Testing Model, thereby, enabling the management to have better insight in to the software testing techniques. The scope of the research is restricted to the investigation for the role of software engineering in testing methods is formed software testing processes and techniques.</p> Dr. Mithelesh Parihar Copyright (c) 2021 2021-09-01 2021-09-01 8 9 354 364 Institutional Child Care Homes: The Promises, Perspectives and Problems http://ijrjournal.com/index.php/ijr/article/view/176 <p>Institutional child care homes provide shelter and support to children who are without family support. They have a long history and were initiated as philanthropic organisations. Over the years their number went on escalating and more and more children started getting accommodated in such institutional care homes. Children growing in institutional care homes fall into different categories on the basis of their separation or missing of family care. Different perspectives lie at the root of institutional care homes. Over the years these institutional care homes are increasing in number both at the global and the national level. But they have many times failed to stick to their promises. Multiple problems grapple them and obstruct their smooth functioning. Keeping all these in view, the present article has tried to analyse the institutional child care homes from the point of the promises they make, the perspectives that govern them and the problems encountered by them. All these are done from a global to the national perspective. The study has a special focus on the institutional care homes of India with its problems.</p> Mrs Annapurna Pattnaik Prof. Navaneeta Rath Copyright (c) 2021 2021-09-16 2021-09-16 8 9 365 379
