Vulnerable populations, such as patients with mental illnesses, are known to be overly influenced during disasters and pandemics. However, little is known about how people with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), one of the most common neurodevelopmental conditions in the world with a prevalence of 1%, are affected by health-related disasters, particularly the current Covid-19 pandemic. We investigated how individuals with ASD responded to Covid-19 in terms of comprehension and adherence to implemented measures; changes in their behavioral problems; and how the anxiety levels of their caregivers relate to these behavioral changes. Our sample consisted of 50 individuals with ASD (30 male and 20 female; ages ranged from 3 to 14). The majority of our participants had trouble grasping what Covid-19 is and the measurements it necessitates. They also encountered difficulties in implementing pandemic-related social distance and hygiene regulations. During this time, the majority of students stopped receiving special education. In terms of increased stereo-types, aggression, hypersensitivity, behavioral problems, and sleep and appetite changes, we observed a Covid-19-related clinical presentation that resembled PTSD in individuals with ASD. Aberrant Behavior Checklist (ABC) subscales differed significantly before and after the pandemic conditions. There were differences among the caregivers’ anxiety levels between the current behavioral problem levels to the behavioral problem levels prior to the pandemic. The difference in ABC total score, and specifically the lethargy/social withdrawal subscale score, predicted the anxiety score of the parents. Our findings suggest that the Covid-19 period poses unique challenges for people with ASD and their caregivers, emphasizing the importance of targeted, distance special education interventions and other support services for this population.

Cloud data migration is the process of moving data, localhost applications, services, and data to the distributed cloud processing framework. The success of this data migration measure is relying upon a few viewpoints like planning and impact analysis of existing enterprise systems. Quite possibly the most widely recognized process is moving locally stored data in a public cloud computing environment. Cloud migration comes along with both challenges and advantages, so there are different academic research and technical applications on data migration to the cloud that will be discussed throughout this paper. By breaking down the research achievement and application status, we divide the existing migration techniques into three strategies as indicated by the cloud service models essentially. Various processes should be considered for different migration techniques, and various tasks will be included accordingly. The similarities and differences between the migration strategies are examined, and the challenges and future work about data migration to the cloud are proposed. This paper, through a research survey, recognizes the key benefits and challenges of migrating data into the cloud. There are different cloud migration procedures and models recommended to assess the presentation, identifying security requirements, choosing a cloud provider, calculating the expense, and making any essential organizational changes. The results of this research paper can give a roadmap for data migration and can help decision-makers towards a secure and productive migration to a cloud computing environment.

Recent literature considers the variant of the classical Tower of Hanoi problem with n (³ 1) discs, where r (1 £ r < n) discs are evildoers, each of which can be placed directly on top of a smaller disc any number of times. Letting E(n, r) be the minimum number of moves required to solve the new variant, an explicit form of E(n, r) is available which depends on a positive integer constant N. This study investigates the properties of N.

An issue that the majority of the databases face is the static and manual character of indexing activities. This traditional method of indexing and sorting different topics is confirmed to shake the dataset performance somewhat, making downtime and a potential effect in the presentation that is normally addressed by manually indexing operations. Numerous data mining methods can accelerate this process by using proper indexing structures. Choosing the appropriate index generally relies upon the kind of operation that the algorithm performs against the dataset. Topic indexing is the operation of recognizing the principal topics covered by a document. These are helpful for some reasons: as subject headings in libraries, as keywords in scholarly articles, and as hashtags on social media platforms. Knowing a document’s topic assists individuals with deciding its importance quickly. In any case, assigning topics manually is a tedious and redundant task. This paper shows the best way to create them automatically in a way that contends with manual indexing done by humans. This paper also talks about the issues and the techniques for identifying applicable data in a huge variety of documents. The contribution of this thesis to this issue is to foster better content analysis techniques that can be utilized to describe document content with automated index terms. Index terms can be used as meta-data that defines documents and is utilized for seeking various topics. The main point of this paper is to show the way toward creating an automatic indexer which analyzes the topic of documents by integrating proof from word frequencies and proof from the linguistic analysis given by a syntactic parser. The indexer weighs the expressions of a document as per their assessed significance for depicting the topic of a given document based on the content analysis.
