This book is a contribution to the ongoing research in the design of hard disk encryption, an important field used to protect the confidentiality of data in the disk. We focus on tweakable ciphers as these appear to offer the best combination of security and performance. In this book, we highlight the research to date in the area of disk encryption and propose a novel narrow-block disk encryption mode of operation with compression of data first. This is the Tweaked Block Chaining (TBC) mode using Xor-Encrypt-Xor (XEX) to inherit from its security and high performance and use CBC like operations to gain the error propagation property. Here we use ´´LZW 15-bit Variable Rate Encoder´´ for the compression of data. We also apply multiplication and exponential in the finite field GF (2^128). Here we use Ciphertext Stealing when data size is not multiple of 16 bytes. Our hope is to generate a disk encryption scheme that will provide high throughput, faster, memory saving and better resistant to the known attacks.

The study aims to investigate Grade Nine students´ academic performance and their teachers´ effectiveness from single shift schooling and double shift schooling in selected junior high schools in Angeles City for the school year 2016-2017. It employed descriptive correlation type of research in order to elaborate the difference of single and double shift schooling in terms of teachers´ teaching effectiveness and students´ academic performance as well as other factors that affect the academic performance like absenteeism, preferred day of study, participation in the class, mode of transportation, and monthly household income. The participants were comprised of total of 240 grade 9 students from heterogeneous sections and 25 teachers. The respondents were selected by stratified proportional sampling where in 120 respondents from each type of school shift were selected as systematic samples. Findings showed that there was a significant difference between the academic performance of students and teachers´ teaching effectiveness in single shift and double shift. It also revealed that each type of school shift differs in other factors in the study.
The purpose of our present work is to fabricate and study the structural and electrical properties of CdS-CdTe thin films heterojunction solar cell. In this work, we have initially grown the CdS thin film layer on SnO2 coated glass substrate by chemical bath deposition method. Then the CdTe layer was deposited on this CdS layer by using physical vapour deposition method using vacuum coating unit. After successful fabrication of heterojunction ´CdS-CdTe´ solar cell, we have tested it for various characterizations such as, X-ray diffraction pattern (XRD), thickness measurement, resistivity measurement and I-V characteristics. This research work was conducted in the department of physics at Z .B. Patil College, Dhule and submitted to North Maharashtra University, Jalgaon in 2009.
