Over The Last Few Years, The Interest For Connecting Computers And Computer Supported Devices To Wireless Networks Has Steadily Increased

ABSTRACT lwIP is an implementation of the TCP/IP protocol stack. The focus of the lwIP stack is to reduce memory usage and code size, making lwIP suitable for use in small clients with very limited resources such as embedded systems. In order to reduce processing and memory demands, lwIP uses a tailor made API that does not require any data copying. This report describes the design and implementation of lwIP. The algorithms and data structures used both in the protocol implementations and in the sub systems such as the memory and buffer management systems are described. INTRODUCTON Over the last few years, the interest for connecting computers and computer supported devices to wireless networks has steadily increased. Computers are becoming more and more seamlessly integrated with everyday equipment and prices are dropping. At the same time wireless networking technologies, such as Bluetooth [HNI+98] and IEEE 802.11b WLAN [BIG+97], are emerging. This gives rise to many new fascinating scenarios in areas such as health care, safety and security, transportation, and processing industry. Small devices such as sensors can be connected to an existing network infrastructure such as the global Internet, and monitored from anywhere. The Internet technology has proven itself °exible enough to incorporate the changing network environments of the past few decades. While originally developed for low speed networks such as the ARPANET, the Internet technology today runs over a large spectrum of link technologies with vastly di®erent characteristics in terms of bandwidth and bit error rate. It is highly advantageous to use the existing Internet technology in the wireless networks of tomorrow since a large amount of applications using the Internet technology have been developed. Also, the large connectivity of the global Internet is a strong incentive. Since small devices such as sensors are often required to be physically…

Republic of the Philippines SUPREME COURT Manila EN BANC G.R. No. L-21015             March 24, 1924 MIGUELA CARRILLO, for herself and as administratrix of the intestate estate of ADRIANA CARRILLO, deceased, plaintiff-appellant, vs. JUSTINIANO JAOJOCO and MARCOS JAOJOCO, defendants-appellees. Crispin Oben and Gibbs & McDonough for appellant. Salinas & Salinas for appellees. AVANCEÑA, J.: On the evening of December 9, 1918, Adriana Carrillo executed a document of sale of eleven parcels of land, with one-half of the improvements thereon, situated in the barrio of Ulong-Tubig, municipality of Carmona, Province of Cavite, containing an area of 330,409 square meters, in favor of Marcos Jaojoco for the price of P4,000 which the seller admitted having received. Nine days afterwards Adriana Carrillo was declared mentally incapacitated by the Court of First Instance and later on died; and proceeding having been instituted for the administrator and settlement of her estate, her sister Miguela Carrillo was appointed judicial administratrix of said estate. In her capacity as such administratrix, Miguela Carrillo now brings this action for the annulment of said contract of sale executed by Adriana Carrillo on December 9, 1918, against Marcos Jaojoco, the purchaser, and his father Justiniano Jaojoco. The defendants were absolved from the complaint, and from this judgment the plaintiff appealed. The plaintiff has attempted to prove that prior to the year 1918 and specially in the year 1917, Adriana Carrillo performed acts which indicated that she was mentally deranged. We have made a thorough examination of the character of those acts, and believe that they do not necessarily show that Adriana Carrillo was mentally insane. The same thing can be said as to her having entered the “Hospital de San Lazaro” and the “Hospicio de San Jose,” in the absence of an affirmative showing to her motive for entering…

New Strategy Mutual Funds Turn Focus On Retail Investors

New strategy: Mutual funds turn focus on retail investors Madhu T, TNN, Jan 27, 2010, 12.24am IST MUMBAI: The Mutual fund industry is passing through testing times, with assets dwindling owing to withdrawals by banks and investors showing little faith in the long-term prospects of MFs. Fund houses are now going back to the basics: serving individual investors rather than chasing banks and companies for showing impressive figures of assets under management, something that the Securities and Exchange Board of India has been advocating. Birla Sun Life Mutual Fund CEO A Balasubramanian said investors have to be educated about the need for “proper financial planning for long-term prospects and that they don’t have a better vehicle than mutual funds to achieve it”. “We also have to tell them that they should consider equity for long-term goals,” he said, adding that getting individual investors to understand this tenet is the only way forward for the MF industry. “Many mutual funds are working hard at it,” he said. A senior fund manager, who didn’t want to be named, said: “If the regulator is going to stop banks and companies from investing in MFs in a big way, the only way out is serving individual investors.” The MF industry has been facing the heat ever since the market watchdog abolished the entry load from August 1. This has effectively taken the incentive away from agents to sell MF products, fund houses feel. “The energy is missing. The push factor is not there anymore,” laments Balasubramanian. Many fund houses say distributors have started marketing unit-linked insurance plans (Ulips) instead of MF schemes as Ulips offer better commission to agents. The attitude of retail investors is also not inspiring much confidence among fund managers. Since August, investors have been pulling out money from equity schemes….
