The traditional methods are fading away with the scientific methods taking a plunge into the field of market research. Neuro marketing is the recent technique in the field of market research that is attracting many eye-balls. It applies neuropsychology to marketing research. Human decision-making is both a conscious and non-conscious process in the brain, and while this method of research succeeded in gathering explicit (or conscious) emotions, the traditional methods failed to gain the consumer's implicit (or unconscious) emotions. Non-conscious information has a large influence in the decision-making process. The goal of the present study is to analyze the Awareness of Neuro marketing as a tool for studying Consumer behavior among the indigenous North- Eastern startups of India. This concept is less known and unexplored not only in Assam but the whole of North-East, yet the startups do not ignore the fact that studying consumer psychology is an important aspect. As Neuromarketing further evolves, we can expect more and more revelation of intricacies involved which determines the consumer‟s purchasing behavior. The awareness of Neuromarketing is to be studied in order to know its application, success and failure as a tool for studying consumer behavior as this type of studies have an important role for the future of marketing.The study will help the local entrepreneurs and marketers to know about Neuromarketing and upgrade their tools and techniques for studying consumer behavior

Opioid analgesics are prescribed by dentists either as an adjunct or as a definitive treatment for pain management and also for some common dental diseases in which they can relieve pain when used appropriately.  Nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are the preferred analgesic agent by the majority of dentists when compared with opioid analgesics, because they inhibit inflammatory reactions in addition to providing analgesia. The appropriate and inappropriate use of opioid analgesics can lead to serious adverse drug events and these drugs have the potential to be misused and abused including overdose. The study was conducted among the dental undergraduates. Data collection was done by the use of online questionnaire forms that had 13 questions regarding the use of opioid analgesics in dental management. Google form was used for data collection from the surveyors.Statistical test was run using chi-square test with statistical analysis software SPSS version 23 by IBM. From the results of the study we can observe that  57% of the participants do not prescribe opioid analgesics to their patients. 62% of the participants have known that opioids can be used as a medication to relieve pain after a dental treatment.  65% of the participants consider tramadol hydrochloride to be the safest drug, 19% consider hydrocodone as the safest drug and 16% consider codeine as the safest drug among  all the opioids and the results were statistically not significant. Higher interest was observed among the interns(34%)  to prescribe opioids to their patients post dental treatment and the results were statistically significant. Thus it can be concluded that opioids when used in appropriate doses in the supervision of the dentist can reduce the side effects and produce excellent analgesic effect in dental management.

For decades, across the country, there has been an ongoing debate on the powers and the steps taken for law enforcement by the police. Statistics prove that people oppose the steps taken by the police even when it is done under their official capacity.Though the CRPC, has given a well crafted and apt powers to the police for the purpose of investigation, several media reports prove that individuals are against the process of investigation carried out by the police this situation seems magnified in the case of rural areas, and thus an ambiguity arises as to whether the procedure requires amendment or are the general public not aware of the same. The study aims to find out the general awareness of individuals on the powers of police to investigate under crpc, using non probability convenience sampling and chi square tests. The study reveals that individuals in the urban areas are aware that the police may extend the duration but the individuals in rural areas are not aware of the same. In case of cognizable offence order of magistrate is not necessary, individuals in the urban areas are aware of this power whereas those in the rural areas aren’t aware. The people living in urban areas are aware that the police officer has got the power to subject the victim and the accused for medical examination but it is not in the case of rural areas. Thus it could be stated that there is a relationship between Awareness of General Public on Power of Police to Investigate under Criminal Procedural Code and place of living. It could be recommended that that awareness programs may be organized in rural areas by police and lawyers so that the negative perception over the police may change

The Coronavirus disease 2019 pandemic is very worrying for global public health. This pandemic fallout highlights how the failure in the urban ruling caused a social impact of threats facing the world. Despite all the threats, the well to do urban settlements manage to get through the difficulties with public benefits, education, and all other necessities of life and despite this progress seen in humanity, slum dwellers lack even the most basic public services i.e access to clean water and sanitation. Such unsanitary conditions due to failure of extension of cleaning sewage in clustered slum areas like in Chennai, the COVID-19 will take a toll and lead to massive community spread. The congestion has currently led to an easy spread and if not controlled by the people themselves with precautionary measures, the disease rate may doubly rise. It is therefore very much necessary to spread awareness regarding the massive pandemic COVID -19 to slums in Chennai as the control of the spread becomes impossible without each and everyone's support.

Water is a vital component in the body. Dehydration is defined as a decrease in water content in the body as a result of fluid loss or reduced water intake. Lack of hydration happens when the measure of water leaving the body is more prominent than the sum being taken in. Sicknesses of the gastrointestinal tract that cause spewing or looseness of the bowels may prompt lack of hydration. There are various different reasons for drying out including vomiting, diarrhoea, heat exposure, fiery exercise, kidney ailment and medicines that cause diuretics. Aim of the study is to know whether the people are aware of dehydration. A self developed online questionnaire was created and was completed by the participants. The questionnaire consisted of ten questions regarding the knowledge towards dehydration. The study shows that 96% of people are aware of dehydration and its health effects and have realised the need for awareness. The study concludes that most of the participants are aware of causes, symptoms and effects of dehydration. The study population has thus displayed good knowledge on dehydration and its effects.

Biomedical waste management The effect of hospital waste on health and the environment is important. It can be seen from this research that there is an immediate need to raise alertness, education on medicinal waste issues.To assure health and environmental protection, a proper waste management strategy is required. More information on effects, disposal to specific conclusions is needed to be collected. For developing countries, find options and suitable technology. Need thorough analysis of waste and aspects. Partly because agriculture has become less and less productive. By 2030, 65 percent of the world's population is projected to be living in cities. Due to low and lack of awareness, the infrastructure needed for this lop-sided growth of the cities is due to waste collection in the unplanned extensions in larger cities. The air quality in the city's surroundings is so bad that is estimated that about two million children under the age of five die each year from respiratory infections..It is a mystery how the wealthy are callous to the climate, such as doctors and higher officials working in such public places and part of their day time in these places. In fact, hospitals produce a large amount of hazardous waste. In establishing countries such as India,the amount of non liquid waste produced by hospitals has increased rapidly and innovations are implemented.

Road traffic injuries are one of the most important leading causes of death and disability in many of the developed and developing countries. Road accidents are major public health problems faced by the society. The crash can be defined as an incident or collision which may or may not lead to injury, occurring on a public road and involving at least one moving vehicle. In a developing country like India with a dense population there is a need to check the awareness level among the public about traffic signals and rules among the adult population, this survey was carried out. To check the awareness level among the adolescents population a questionnaire containing 10 questions was prepared. This survey was carried between the month of June 2019 to March 2020 among the adult population living in Chennai. This survey was conducted in an online platform where the participants responded to their answers. Finally the results were analysed and tabulated. Around 85% had knowledge and awareness of violating traffic signals and rules and suggested the need for having awareness camps to be organised by NGOs/Traffic Police/Government to create awareness among the public to obey traffic rules and 15% had no idea. The survey participants had moderate knowledge about road traffic regulations and most of them mentioned that prime speed, drivers lack of awareness about traffic regulation and laws, and drivers non-compliance with traffic rules and regulation were the foremost important explanation for road traffic accidents
