Contradictions Between Local Values and Top-down Conservation Priorities: Taşkale, Turkey

Emine Cigdem Asrav & Ayse Guliz Bilgin Altinoz
Taşkale village, located on a valley, has been formed by having direct relations with nature within its own dynamics. In its historical continuum, there has always been active and continuous use of places even though functions change in time. The initial settlement starts in rock-cut spaces, then the settlement moves towards the slope of the valley in front of the rock formation. The rock formation has been used for various purposes of inhabitation, storage and...

El Camino Tierra Adentro as a rural landscape

Graciela Mota, Pilar Rincón & Sara E. Narvaez Martínez
Camino Real de Tierra Adentro was the Royal Inland Road, also known as the Silver Route. The inscribed property consists of 55 sites and five existing World Heritage sites lying along a 1400 km section of this 2600 km route, that extends north from Mexico City to Texas and New Mexico, United States of America. The route was actively used as a trade route for 300 years, from the mid-16th to the 19th centuries, mainly...

Hotel Asset and Equity Risk Before, During, and After the Global Financial Crisis

Marilyn F. Johnson, Mark S. Johnson & Antoinette C. Tessmer
In this paper, we use asset betas and equity betas over the period January 2000 through December 2015 to investigate the operating and financial risk of hotel industry REITs and C-Corps. We conclude that, on average over our sample period, the operating risk of C-Corps exceeds that of REITs. One interpretation of this result is that management contracts between REITs and C-Corps allocate more operating risk to C-Corps than to REITs. We also find that,...

Neural Generative Models and Representation Learning for Information Retrieval

Qingyao Ai
Information Retrieval (IR) concerns about the structure, analysis, organization, storage, and retrieval of information. Among different retrieval models proposed in the past decades, generative retrieval models, especially those under the statistical probabilistic framework, are one of the most popular techniques that have been widely applied to Information Retrieval problems. While they are famous for their well-grounded theory and good empirical performance in text retrieval, their applications in IR are often limited by their complexity and...

Multi-Level Barriers to Art Adherence Among HIV-Infected Women in Rural Eswatini: A Mixed Methods Approach

Nozipho Becker
Eswatini has the highest global prevalence of HIV despite universal access to free treatment. Lack of compliance continues to be a significant challenge for HIV care and management programs throughout the country. Studies investigating barriers to antiretroviral therapy (ART) adherence, particularly in women, who are the most vulnerable to HIV infections, are limited. The disproportionate impact of HIV on women can be attributed to multiple risk factors at the individual, household, and community/structural levels. Women...

Transfer Learning with Mixtures of Manifolds

Thomas Boucher
Advances in scientific instrumentation technology have increased the speed of data acquisition and the precision of sampling, creating an abundance of high-dimensional data sets. The ability to combine these disparate data sets and to transfer information between them is critical to accurate scientific analysis. Many modern-day instruments can record data at many thousands of channels, far greater than the actual degrees of freedom in the sample data. This makes manifold learning, a class of methods...
