Free throws results and predictions by male and female players

Jonathan Maglott & Peter Shull
Subjects shot free throws and their vision was occluded at ball release. Subjects predicted the shot was 'in' or 'out' after each shot. Files show counts for actual shot outcomes and predictions made by the shooter and statistical values for true positive, false positive, etc.

Prevalence of metabolic syndrome among middle-aged and elderly adults in China: current status and temporal trends

Wenzhen Li, Fujian Song, Xiaojun Wang, Longde Wang, Dongming Wang, Xiaoxv Yin, Shiyi Cao, Yanhong Gong, Wei Yue, Feng Yan, Hong Zhang, Zhenjie Sheng, Zhihong Wang & Zuxun Lu
Background: Metabolic syndrome (MetS) is a cluster of major risk factors for cardiovascular diseases. We aimed to estimate prevalence and distribution of MetS among middle-aged and elderly adults in China. Methods: The present analysis used data from a national study in 2014–2015. We defined MetS by different definitions, and compared results of the present study and previous nationally representative studies to illustrate possible temporal changes in MetS prevalence. Results: The estimated prevalence of MetS was...

New algorithm for predicting gastroesophageal varices

Hongshan Wei, Jiali Ma, Yu Jiang, Lingling He, Junru Yang, Ping Li, Julong Hu, Yuling Zhou & Xiuxia Liang
We retrospectively analyzed 659 patients with chronic hepatitis B virus(HBV) infection and 410 patients in our medical center, from October, 2015 to December, 2017. We set 659 CHB patients as training set, and 410 patients with other chronic liver diseases as validation set. Logistic regression analysis between the conventional markers and the performances of GOV detected by endoscopy were assessed. A new algorithm for diagnosing GOV was established and its sensitivity and specificity for predicting...

Quantitative analysis of pixel crosstalk in AMOLED displays

Matthias Diethelm, Lieven Penninck, Stéphane Altazin, Roman Hiestand, Christoph Kirsch & Beat Ruhstaller
The resolution of organic light-emitting diode (OLED) displays is increasing steadily as these displays are adopted for mobile and virtual reality (VR) devices. This leads to a stronger pixel crosstalk effect, where the neighbors of active pixels unintentionally emit light due to a lateral electric current between the pixels. Recently, the crosstalk was quantified by measuring the current flowing through the common hole transport layer between the neighboring pixels and comparing it to the current...

How video can increase policy-maker understanding and commitment to using health research evidence for policy and practice changes

Jamie Guth
Public health officials are faced with multiple and often competing priorities and information, and the results of health research are often not seen, or disregarded in the policy-making process. Studies have documented that policy-makers want more than quantitative or qualitative data; they want to know how the target user or community feels about the innovation, and to see and hear how involved and committed they are. A trial in the Gambia on malaria preventive treatment...

A qualitative study to explore the value of videotaped perceptions of research participants and stakeholders for use in analysing evidence for policy-making in the Gambia.Untitled Item

Jamie Guth
This the dissertation of Jamie Guth, submitted in partial fulfilment of the requirements for the degree of Master of Public Health, University of Liverpool, August 2017. Background The field of evidence-informed policy-making (EIPM) is limited and has often missed valuable types of evidence not included in these theories. Policymakers want to know how the target user or community feels about an innovation, and to see and hear how involved and committed they are. A study...

Sparse sampling of water density fluctuations near liquid-vapor coexistence

Erte Xi, Sean M. Marks, Suruchi Fialoke & Amish J. Patel
The free energetics of water density fluctuations in bulk water, at interfaces, and in hydrophobic confinement inform the hydration of hydrophobic solutes as well as their interactions and assembly. The characterisation of such free energetics is typically performed using enhanced sampling techniques such as umbrella sampling. In umbrella sampling, order parameter distributions obtained from adjacent biased simulations must overlap in order to estimate free energy differences between biased ensembles. Many biased simulations are typically required...

BIOMETRIC AUTHORIZATION SYSTEM USING GAIT BIOMETRY

L.R Sudha & R. Bhavani
ABSTRACT
Human gait, which is a new biometric aimed to recognize individuals by the way they walk have come to play an increasingly important role in visual surveillance applications. In this paper a novel hybrid holistic approach is proposed to show how behavioural walking characteristics can be used to recognize unauthorized and suspicious persons when they enter a surveillance area. Initially background is modelled from the input video captured from cameras deployed for security and the...

A NEW KEY ESTABLISHMENT SCHEME FOR WIRELESS SENSOR NETWORKS

Eric Ke Wang, Lucas C.K.Hui & S.M.Yiu
ABSTRACT
Traditional key management techniques, such as public key cryptography or key distribution center (e.g., Kerberos), are often not effective for wireless sensor networks for the serious limitations in terms of computational power, energy supply, network bandwidth. In order to balance the security and efficiency, we propose a new scheme by employing LU Composition techniques for mutual authenticated pairwise key establishment and integrating LU Matrix with Elliptic Curve Diffie-Hellman for anonymous pathkey establishment. At the meantime,...

Qualitative Research for Educational Science Researchers: A Review of An Introduction to Qualitative Research

Ali Kılıçoglu
Qualitative research is a type of scientific research which includes document analysis, observation or interview. Qualitative research process describes the events in the natural environment realistically and holistically. Although quantitative research methods are mostly used in educational sciences, qualitative research methods are also used by the educational science researchers. An Introduction to Qualitative Research by Uwe Flick (2014) is an ideal guide for educational science researchers in regard to qualitative research methods and techniques.

Glacial geomorphology of the Marinelli and Pigafetta glaciers, Cordillera Darwin Icefield, southernmost Chile

Eñaut Izagirre, Christopher M. Darvill, Camilo Rada & Juan Carlos Aravena
This paper presents a glacial geomorphological map relating to two rapidly receding glaciers in the Cordillera Darwin Icefield. The Marinelli marine-terminating glacier and Pigafetta freshwater-terminating glacier are selected to represent different glacial regimes producing different geomorphological records under similar climatic conditions. We combine mapping from satellite and aerial imagery with fieldwork, updating limited previous mapping. The map reveals two principal glacial landform assemblages: (1) a marine-terminating system, dominated by the formation of a large arcuate...
