As part of the challenge in the new normal we are facing right now is the availability to double the services like the increase of bandwidth requirements because of the Distance Education being implemented in all higher education. The researcher is proposing a study to minimize network traffic and slowdown of internet connections and video conferencing by using an alternative platform which can minimize the usage of internet bandwidth. In terms of the video-conferencing classroom platform, it is highly recommended to use another source or tools that can be used in online learning, which is by using the upgraded requirements.</p> Dr. Froilan Mobo Copyright (c) 2021 ICONTECH INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 2021-03-28 2021-03-28 5 1 1 4 10.46291/ICONTECHvol5iss1pp1-4 IMPORTANCE OF ASCARIDIOSIS CONCERNING HUMAN AND ANIMAL HEALTH, PRESENT CONDITION AND SOLUTION PROPOSALS IN TURKEY AND THE WORLD https://icontechjournal.com/index.php/iij/article/view/139 <p>Toxocariasis is a zoonotic parasitic infection, affecting millions of people and animals, commonly occurred, in the world. According to the seroprevalence studies, it is seen that exposure to this parasite is highly common in children living in temperate zones in the world. The geographic distribution of <em>Toxocara canis</em> is continuously expanded as a result of human and animal movements with global warming. Uncontrolled increase of human and animal populations in urban areas raises the importance of toxocariasis. Owned and unowned cats and dogs not administered treatment and wild animals create infection source for humans and other paratenic hosts by causing environmental contamination with eggs. Paratenic hosts like rodents, birds, and invertebrate animals play an important role in the spreading of the ascarid eggs. Infection in humans occurs in the result of consumption of larvae in the tissues of paratenic hosts (chicken, rabbit, pig and ruminants), drinking of dirty water, and close contact with contaminated soil and pet animals. Depending on these conditions stated, in the context of this review, concise knowledge was presented about the prevalence data in humans and animals of ascaridiosis in Turkey and the world, diagnosis, treatment and prevention measures.</p> Ali BILGILI Başak HANEDAN Copyright (c) 2021 ICONTECH INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 2021-03-28 2021-03-28 5 1 5 15 10.46291/ICONTECHvol5iss1pp5-15 A Review: Genetics Algorithms in Bioinformatics Tools https://icontechjournal.com/index.php/iij/article/view/140 <p>Bioinformaticians study biological questions by analyzing molecular data with various programs and tools. Today,&nbsp;bioinformatics&nbsp;is used in large number of fields such as microbial genome applications, biotechnology, waste cleanup, Gene therapy, fingerprint and eye detection. The field of bioinformatics, is one of the most prominent areas that our need is increasing, and the demand for it is increasing day by day. Where dealing with this vital and biological information using advanced computer technologies to generate useful information and new discoveries. For this reason, vital bioinformatics is one of the domains that combines both interested and programming at the same time. It provides you with resources for self-learning, the most important information in the field of vital information, and asked questions of those wishing to learn this field. The term bioinformatics was first used in 1968 by Margret Dayhoff, which is a pioneer in this field, but its definition appeared for the first time in 1978. This science arose and developed in conjunction with the emergence and development of computers. It is also referred to as "computational biology."</p> Bafreen Najeb Mohammed Copyright (c) 2021 ICONTECH INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 2021-03-28 2021-03-28 5 1 16 25 10.46291/ICONTECHvol5iss1pp16-25 Mechanical Properties Of Sandwich Composites Used For Aerofoil Shell Structures Of Wind Turbine Blade https://icontechjournal.com/index.php/iij/article/view/143 <p>The grid-scored foams contribute significantly to the overall mechanical properties of the sandwich structures, such as aerofoil shell structure of wind turbine blades which are subjected to different loads under operating conditions. The goal of the present paper is to examine the four-point bending, flatwise and edgewise compression and in-plane shear behaviour of sandwich panels composed of composite face sheets of E-glass/ bisphenol-A epoxy resin and plain and grid-scored PVC foams. The four-point bending failure load of the grid-scored foamed sandwich beams increased by 28.1% compared to the plain foamed ones. The flatwise compression strength of samples with grid-scored foam increased by 546% compared to plain foamed samples. The resin grids contributed to an increase in the flat-wise compression stress inducing the core crushing. Under the edgewise compression load, using the grid-scored foam increased the maximum load values by only about 2.9% relative to the plain foam. The reason for this small difference can be addressed as the facings are more effective in carrying the edgewise loadings. With the use of the grid-scored foam, an increase of 38.2% was obtained in-plane shear strength compared to plain foamed sandwich beams. The resin grids improved bonding between the facings and PVC foam.</p> Fatih BALIKOĞLU Tayfur Kerem Demircioğlu Ali IŞIKTAŞ Copyright (c) 2021 ICONTECH INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 2021-03-28 2021-03-28 5 1 26 37 10.46291/ICONTECHvol5iss1pp26-37 A INDOOR POSITION ROUTING (IPR) AND DATA MONITOR USING BLUETOOTH LOW ENERGY TECHNOLOGY (iBEACON-BLE): AN IMPLEMENTATION STUDY https://icontechjournal.com/index.php/iij/article/view/146 <p>Rapid advancements in mobile industry have emerged new technological ideas and applications for researchers by allowing smart devices over the last decade. In recent years, the need for Indoor Position Routing (IPR) and Location-Based Advertisements (LBA) systems are increasingly common, IPR and LBA systems have been becoming very popular. Nowadays, it has become possible to create software and hardware applications for IPR and LBA in indoor environments, thanks to developments of different technologies. The development of the system should be based on low-cost technology, it should be suitable for integration and indoors operation. New options and possibilities for indoor locations are presented by the iBeacon-Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) radio protocol. iBeacon-BLE supports portable battery-powered system that can be smoothly distributed at low cost giving it distinct advantages over Wi-Fi. Therefore, in this study, a technological infrastructure is created to solve the navigation problem in closed locations using iBeacon-BLE technology, a data monitoring information system is proposed for smart devices of currently available technology for IPR, LBA with using iBeacon-BLE. The localization of the objects based on iBeacon-BLE and their combination are determined using the measured data with the developed application. To build an IPR system for indoor environments, the available hardware, software, and network technologies are presented. The concept of the indoor monitoring system and the technologies can be used to develop the IPR system are presented. This system is made up of iBeacon-BLE sensor nodes, a smart device and a mobile application that provides IPR and LBA services by measuring the distance between Transmitter (TX) and Receiver (RX). The proposed model uses the trilateration method, it allows the mobile application to determine the exact location of the object at the micro-level size. The proposed model uses sensory data to identify and trilateration the object’s position.</p> Batur Alp Akgül Bülent HAZNEDAR Abdurrahman YAŞAR Mustafa Ersan ÇİNKILIÇ Copyright (c) 2021 ICONTECH INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 2021-03-28 2021-03-28 5 1 38 61 10.46291/ICONTECHvol5iss1pp38-61
