An Intimate Insight on Psychopathy and a Novel Hermeneutic Psychological Science

Emmanuel Taku
Abstract This paper is rather a profound hermeneutic enunciation putting into question our present understanding of psychopathy. It further articulates, in complement, a novel theoretical and methodological conceptualisation for a hermeneutic psychological science. Methodology-wise, it puts into question a traditional more or less categorical and mechanical approach to the social and behavioural sciences as it strives to introduce a creative and insightful approach for the articulation of ideas. It rather seeks to construe the scientific...

Efficient Use of the Spectrum in Small Cell Deployments for 5G Wireless Communications Networks

Sandra Lagén, Adrián Agustin & Josep Vidal
Paired frequency division duplexing (FDD) bands are traditionally adopted at macro
cells (MeNBs) but they tend to show inefficient occupancy of the uplink (UL) band due to the
asymmetric traffic conditions and prevalence of downlink (DL)-centric applications. To improve
spectrum utilization, one possibility is to allow time division duplexing (TDD) small cells (SeNBs)
to operate in the underutilized FDD-UL spectrum. However, under an opportunistic access, TDD
SeNBs might reuse the same resources as the FDD...

A Novel Approach to MISO Interference Networks under Maximum Receive-Power Regulation

Ana I. Pérez-Neira, Miguel Ángel Vázquez & Miguel Ángel Lagunas
An aggressive frequency reuse is expected within the next years in order to increase the spectral efficiency.
Multiuser interference by all in-band transmitters can create a communication bottleneck and, therefore, it is compulsory to control it by means of radiated power regulations. In this work we consider received power as the main way to properly measure radiated power, serving at the same time as a spectrum sharing mechanism. Taking into account the constraints on the...

Sinusoidal Roughness Elements In A Square Cavity

M. Yousaf & S. Usman
Numerical studies were conducted using Lattice
Boltzmann Method (LBM) to study the natural convection in a square
cavity in the presence of roughness. An algorithm based on a single
relaxation time Bhatnagar-Gross-Krook (BGK) model of Lattice
Boltzmann Method (LBM) was developed. Roughness was
introduced on both the hot and cold walls in the form of sinusoidal
roughness elements. The study was conducted for a Newtonian fluid
of Prandtl number (Pr) 1.0. The range of Ra...

Noise Removal From Surface Respiratory Emg Signal

Slim Yacoub & Kosai Raoof
The aim of this study was to remove the two principal noises which disturb the surface electromyography signal (Diaphragm). These signals are the electrocardiogram ECG artefact and the power line interference artefact. The algorithm proposed focuses on a new Lean Mean Square (LMS) Widrow adaptive structure. These structures require a reference signal that is correlated with the noise contaminating the signal. The noise references are then extracted : first with a noise reference mathematically constructed...

Language Map In The Bordering Region Of Two Malay-Polynesian Languages.

Ana Purwitasari.
This investigation was focused on Austronesian languages, e.g. Sundanese and Javanese. As its aim was to determine language border in Majalengka, the scope was into lexical comparison of Standard Sundanese and Standard Javanese in order to map it out into a language map. The result of this analysis was presented as a language map which explained clearly that there were two urban villages, where people tended to use both Sundanese and Javanese although they lived...

Ultra Fast Solid State Ground Fault Isolator

I Made Darmayuda, Zhou Jun, Krishna Mainali, Simon Ng Sheung Yan, Saisundar S & Eran Ofek
Personnel protection devices are cardinal in safety hazard applications. They are widely used in home, office and in industry environments to reduce the risk of lethal shock to human being and equipment safety. This paper briefly reviews various personnel protection devices also describes the basic working principle of conventional ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) or ground fault isolator (GFI), its disadvantages and ways to overcome the disadvantages with solid-state relay (SSR) based GFI with ultrafast...

Five Laws of Ethics

Leandro Tripodi
This essay presents a theory of ethical action as heading out from non-uniform, bare cognitions of good or bad, right or wrong. It describes the path running from bare cognitions to rational ethical non-judgements and judgements, the latter of which may result in either ethical action or non-action (moral utterances). The concepts of ethical availability and of judgements of opinion or of mere morality are introduced. The concept of (objective) moral facts is dismissed. The...

Of the Relationship Between Ethical and Aesthetic Judgements

Leandro Tripodi
The foundation of ethical judgements being assigned to preference is the foremost reason whereby the boundary between Ethics and Aesthetics remains so indistinct. Taste pressures reason during the latter’s passing aesthetic, but also ethical, judgements. Four are the features of taste: (1) The sense of balance and proportion; (2) The sense of fullness; (3) The sense of purpose; (4) The sense of repetition. Due to the lurking influence of aesthetic subvenients, ethical judgements are affected...

O direito ético e o direito estético

Leandro Tripodi
The Ethical Law is a pre-active law that bestows upon the subject a set of references for action capable of guiding her in passing ethical judgements; it, therefore, relates to the subject’s ethical formation. The Aesthetic Law is characterised by the satisfaction of taste-foisted ideas such as – in their legal acceptation – systematicness, completeness, purpose and predictability. This essay looks into the nature of legal rules from a philosophical perspective and elaborates, also philosophically,...

Data mining no âmbito da monitorização não-intrusiva de cargas

Ana Inês Soares
Information and communication technology plays an important role in approaching energy issues throughout the world. Electrical networks and smart meters bring a paradigm shift for the electricity sector. They allow for monitoring the production, distribution and consumption of energy. They can also provide information in real time for families about their electricity consumption and thus help them save energy. However, the smart meters still cannot provide detailed information about which device is activated and how...

Deborah Liebart
Nouvelle étude en cours !!! «Dans le débat public actuel, la perception prédominante semble être que la possibilité de remplacer l’être humain par la machine atteint des niveaux sans précédents.

Study Of Thermal Neutrinos In Short Gamma-Ray Bursts

Gibran MORALES
Compact object binary mergers; neutron star-neutron star or neutron star-black hole have amply been discussed as progenitors of short gamma-ray bursts (sGRBs). Whereas the strength of magnetic field in a neutron star-black hole merger can be ∼1012 \sim 10^{12} G, in a binary neutron star system, the magnetic field could be amplified beyond (∼1015 (\sim 10^{15} - 1016 ) 10^{16}\ ) G. By calculating the effective neutrino potential up to order M−4W M_W^{-4} , we...

Nonsmooth Newton's method: some structure exploitation

Alberto De Marchi & Matthias Gerdts
Abstract We investigate real asymmetric linear systems arising in the search direction generation in a nonsmooth Newton’s method. We propose a strategy to exploit the problem structure, leading to a smaller and symmetric linear system. First, based on the sub-blocks of the original matrix, some variables are selected and ruled out for a posteriori recovering; then, a smaller and symmetric linear system is generated; eventually, from the solution of the latter, the remaining variables are...
