  1. How to (really) reduce the greenhouse gases releases; Comment (vraiment) reduire les emissions de gaz a effet de serre

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Masurel, J.; Frot, J. [Sauvons le Climat (France)

    2009-03-15

    Based on the last 2008 GIEC report, 'Sauvons le Climat' presupposes the character essentially anthropic of the climatic change and concludes to the requirement to divide by four, between now and 2050, the releases of greenhouse gases of the OECD countries. The world energetic balance is composed, for 80% of carbonaceous energies: petroleum, coal and natural gas. At the world-wide level, the preoccupations of the energetic resources and those of climate protection go therefore hand in hand. It is the same thing for the European Union but not for France whose carbonaceous energies part is only of 50%. That is to say, in France, an energy savings has only one chance of two to improve its energetic independence and to protect the climate. Especially for France, 'Sauvons le Climat' gives then here some advices to really reduce the greenhouse gases releases. (O.M.)

  2. How human-made greenhouse gas emissions can (really) be reduced; Comment (vraiment) reduire les gaz a effet de serre

    To be efficient, any action undertaken in view of mitigating Greenhouse Gas Emissions requires that the reduction of CO{sub 2} emissions not be confused with energy savings. Indeed, there is strict correlation between the two only if the energy savings achieved lead to fossil fuel savings. If a drastic reduction of greenhouse gas emissions were not mandatory, the conversion of our energy production and use would be less pressing, the known fossil fuel reserves being sufficient to supply humanity for at least one and a half centuries. Keeping these consideration in mind, under the control of its Scientific Council and with the help of partner organizations, STC has elaborated a set of proposals to reduce the economic activity's carbon content without affecting in any fundamental way the life style of the populations concerned while leaving room for economic growth in developing countries. In this sense, the 'Negatep' scenario put forward by STC is fundamentally different from the 'Negawatt' type scenarios. The options we recommend are ranked according to their economic efficiency. The index that is conventionally used to compare conceivable solutions is known as the 'cost of carbon avoided' for a given action. It consists in estimating the additional cost of the action considered in relation to the amount of carbon whose release to the atmosphere is avoided thanks to the action. The index is measured in Euros per metric ton of carbon avoided. Summary of the actions and recommendations put forward by 'Save the Climate' for energy production and energy efficiency are argued in further detail in this document. (A.L.B.)

    commentators and Stanley Kubrick predicted, but we understand the cosmos and our humble place in it much better. This issue of Physics Education sees contributions on a variety of space themes - Monica Grady, Curator of Meteorites at London's Natural History Museum and world expert on martian meteorites, has contributed a fascinating article, and we consider Time, artificial gravity and the use of computer-controlled telescopes. Few would dispute that the greatest changes to our teaching methods have almost all been due to the rise in available computing power. Computers control telescopes so that with active optics, telescopes in arrays, and with image enhancement techniques we can see far beyond the limits of simple optical apparatus. The internet allows us to control experiments and telescopes on opposite sides of the globe, and allows teachers to get rapid feedback on their students' progress. Interactive whiteboards, electronic conferencing ... the list goes on. We have unprecedented access to information and powerful means of communicating with each other. For good or for bad, the information age brings us too much information, and devalues it. Our students are not awed by our knowledge - they are more critical, harder to impress and more easily bored. A good teacher is one who knows this, who listens to their students and cares. The inspirational teacher is as important as ever. Time, whatever that is (see John Taylor's article), moves on, and change is an inevitable consequence. No living, dynamic system is immune to the effects of time, and our education systems should be living and dynamic. We are not striving for the perfect system, so that we can fix it in tablets of stone; we are working out the best ways to teach our students, today. I hope that this issue of Physics Education helps you to do just that. Editor: Kerry Parker

    schools and colleges are exploring electronic learning through the internet and virtual labs (see Steve Mellema's use of IT in his Lecture for the 21st Century). We aim to provide useful material for everybody at and in between the extremes. But some words of caution, sounded by Robertson in Stirling: today we might find that our classes are motivated and interested when we use computers, but how long will the excitement last? If every lesson faces children with computer screens will they soon get bored and demotivated? Individual learning, through worksheets, was a great success when it was developed in the 70s, but when every lesson faced a child with yet another worksheet, students were turned off. It became known as 'death by a thousand worksheets'. Let's not abuse computers in the same way. Physics for the beach and the igloo Physics is about being cool, as we are always trying to tell our students! In this 'summer' issue we have two papers which allow us to demonstrate this practically. I should also like to remind readers that Physics Education is available online (www.iop.org/Journals/pe) in addition to the paper version. The electronic version has the advantages of hotlinks to websites, search facilities and the ability to download teaching materials. My guess is that we haven't begun to explore the possibilities of the electronic journal as a teaching resource for teachers. If it can be stored electronically, we can include it as a multimedia clip pictures, worksheets, spreadsheets, videos, sounds... But there are also many advantages of paper—convenience and permanence being just two. Physics Education is a worthwhile publication and it feels like that in your hand. Having a journal like this, to put in my bag, or stack on my bookshelf, still feels good to me. And judging by readers' comments, you agree. IOPP will, no doubt, support both formats for a long time to come. So, this summer, enjoy the format you are reading, read Physics Education on screen or on

    Comme tous les travailleurs, les chercheurs ne peuvent échapper à l'évaluation. Celle-ci ne peut être conduite par eux-mêmes. De nombreuses questions se posent : qui doit les évaluer ? À quel rythme ? Et surtout, sur quelles bases ? Sur leur réputation, leurs interventions, leur implication dans la discipline, leur présence dans la littérature scientifique ? Mais alors quelle littérature ? Comment apprécier cette présence ? Par le nombre de textes publiés ? La diversité des revues ? Par l'écho qu'ont les textes dans la littérature ? La bibliométrie tend aujourd'hui à saturer l'évaluation. Elle est une réponse à quelques-unes de ces questions. Elle propose une forme d'évaluation comptable qu'on voudrait objective mais qui comporte de nombreuses limites et ambiguïtés. Ce livre présente quelques outils bibliométriques comme les fameux «facteur d'impact» et «h-index» et, à travers une analyse des pratiques mises en oeuvre, montre que l'objectivité n'est pas au rendez-vous et que...

    CERN Document Server

    Diu, Bernard

    1997-01-01

    Peu de notions scientifiques ont autant suscité l'imagination spéculative que l'entropie thermodynamique. Tous les systèmes organisés - les sociétés, les êtres vivants - seraient promis à la décadence, à la mort, forcément. Ce livre expose en toute clarté le développement historique et conceptuel de la thermodynamique. Née du désir de comprendre et de maîtriser le fonctionnement des machines à vapeur - emblème de nos sociétés industrielles -, elle est devenue la science des corps, de tous les corps à notre échelle. Mais elle se passait sans états d'âme de l'hypothèse atomique. Elle a donc été battue en brèche par la mécanique statistique qui faisait droit aux impératifs dictés par la structure atomique des corps. Après une lutte épique, et même sanglante, thermodynamique et mécanique statistique se sont réconciliées sur les fondements de la seconde mais avec les techniques de la première. Ce livre se lit comme un roman de physique contemporaine.

    Quebec population and socio economic agents are little or not summoned to in the definition of a vision relating to the dependency of Quebec to petroleum. The presented approach expects to include them as determining actors in the research for solutions to this collective issue, exploring aspects linked both to the energy consumption and production. The question to which the consultation is looking for answers is: How can Quebec reduce its petroleum consumption and increase its energy independence while promoting the harmonious economic and social development of its territory?. [French] La population et les agents socioeconomiques du Quebec sont peu ou pas interpelles dans la definition d'une vision entourant la dependance du Quebec au petrole. La demarche presentee prevoit les inclure comme acteurs determinants vers la recherche de solutions a cet enjeu collectif, explorant les aspects lies tant a la consommation qu'a la production energetique. La question a laquelle la consultation lancee cherchera des reponses est : Comment le Quebec peut-il diminuer sa consommation de petrole et accroitre son independance energetique tout en favorisant le developpement economique et social harmonieux de son territoire?.

  20. @tComment: Testing Javadoc Comments to Detect Comment-Code Inconsistencies

    CERN Document Server

    Tan, Shin Hwei; Tan, Lin; Leavens, Gary T

    2012-01-01

    Code comments are important artifacts in software. Javadoc comments are widely used in Java for API specifications. API developers write Javadoc comments, and API users read these comments to understand the API, e.g., reading a Javadoc comment for a method instead of reading the method body. An inconsistency between the Javadoc comment and body for a method indicates either a fault in the body or, effectively, a fault in the comment that can mislead the method callers to introduce faults in their code. We present a novel approach, called @TCOMMENT, for testing Javadoc comments, specifically method properties about null values and related exceptions. Our approach consists of two components. The first component takes as input source files for a Java project and automatically analyzes the English text in Javadoc comments to infer a set of likely properties for a method in the files. The second component generates random tests for these methods, checks the inferred properties, and reports inconsistencies. We eval...

    One of the outcomes of the recent spate of attention to environmental problems is the realization that we do not have suitable methods to census non-game species. Since marking is expensive and time-consuming, investigators have tended to look for methods that involve only visual techniques. One of the leading candidates thus becomes the line transect method. The purpose here is to briefly describe some of the available transect methods, and to comment on some aspects that may be of particular interest and importance.

    Full Text Available Nous avons mené un recueil de données longitudinal (réparti sur trois années scolaires : de février 2009 à juin 2011. Cette étude a pour objectif de mieux comprendre les procédures développées par des élèves de 8 à 11 ans alors qu’ils évoluent de l'étape morphémique vers l'étape orthographique d'acquisition de l'orthographe grammaticale. Nous nous concentrons sur une compétence particulièrement attendue en fin d'école primaire : la réussite de l'accord sujet-verbe. Nous présentons les "portraits orthographiques" de quatre élèves à travers l'analyse de l'évolution de leurs compétences en situation de dictée (sur deux ans et de production écrite (sur une année scolaire. Nous élargissons ensuite aux productions des CM2 lors des évaluations nationales. Nous montrons que ces élèves ont des évolutions similaires mais assez fortement décalées dans le temps. C'est la maîtrise de procédures morphosyntaxiques (qui coexistent alors avec les procédures morphosémantiques développées en premier lieu qui permet d'améliorer puis stabiliser leurs choix orthographiques. L'accord sujet-verbe reste cependant une compétence "en cours d'acquisition", donc fragile, pour de nombreux élèves en fin d'école primaire. Il est donc important de réfléchir à des dispositifs et des outils susceptibles de favoriser le développement de ces procédures morphosyntaxiques et leur intégration dans une démarche réflexive d'analyse et de contrôle.

    Abstract:Anyplace where differences are found leaves room for stereotypes.Each of us hears or makes stereotypical comments every day,and although sometimes it is necessary to make stereotypes in foreign language teaching and learning,we should always be aware of the negative effects of stereotyping people from other cultures when we use them to interpret behavior.This paper defines stereotypes,discusses how they impede communication and then focuses on some ways to challenge and reduce stereotypes in cross-cultural communication.

    We show that the argument in Phys.Rev.Lett. 70 (1993) 1360 is correct and consistent, and that Hagen & Sudarshan's solution has inconsistency leading to non-vanishing commutators of [P^1, P^2] and [P^j, H] even in physical states. This proves that many of HS's statements in their Comment are based merely on incorrect guess, but not on careful algebra.

    2010-01-01

    Spam messes up user's inbox, consumes network resources and spread worms and viruses. Spam is flooding of unsolicited, unwanted e mail. Spam in blogs is called blog spam or comment spam.It is done by posting comments or flooding spams to the services such as blogs, forums,news,email archives and guestbooks. Blog spams generally appears on guestbooks or comment pages where spammers fill a comment box with spam words. In addition to wasting user's time with unwanted comments, spam also consumes a lot of bandwidth. In this paper, we propose a software tool to prevent such blog spams by using Bayesian Algorithm based technique. It is derived from Bayes' Theorem. It gives an output which has a probability that any comment is spam, given that it has certain words in it. With using our past entries and a comment entry, this value is obtained and compared with a threshold value to find if it exceeds the threshold value or not. By using this concept, we developed a software tool to block comment spam. The experimental...

  4. Comments on Holographic Complexity

    CERN Document Server

    Carmi, Dean; Rath, Pratik

    2016-01-01

    We study two recent conjectures for holographic complexity: the complexity=action conjecture and the complexity=volume conjecture. In particular, we examine the structure of the UV divergences appearing in these quantities, and show that the coefficients can be written as local integrals of geometric quantities in the boundary. We also consider extending these conjectures to evaluate the complexity of the mixed state produced by reducing the pure global state to a specific subregion of the boundary time slice. The UV divergences in this subregion complexity have a similar geometric structure, but there are also new divergences associated with the geometry of the surface enclosing the boundary region of interest. We discuss possible implications arising from the geometric nature of these UV divergences.

  2. Self-Governance on Trial: A Public Sphere Analysis of News Website Forum Comments

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    J. David Wolfgang

    2016-04-01

    Full Text Available The online public sphere offers society an opportunity to pursue self-governance through rational-critical discourse of public issues. However, testing the effectiveness of the sphere involves studying the structure of the online forum (e.g. whether the forum allows for pseudonymous comments or not and the quality of the content in the forum. This research studied online news forums on the topics of gun control and civil unions in Colorado to see what barriers to participating in the forum might exist in the structure of the forum and then what types of content was produced in the forum. The research showed that a forum allowing commenters to use a pseudonym led to comments with more exchange and critique of reasoned normative positions and use of supporting facts. However, neither the pseudonymous forum nor the identified forum had stronger levels of commitment to constructive dialogue in the forum. Also, commenters showed no reflexivity in their comments, meaning that participants were not assessing their own positions or changing their perspectives based on the arguments of others. While this shows that reducing barriers to accessing the forum helps to produce a public sphere environment, there is still work to be done in improving the level of constructive dialogue and stimulating negotiation and consensus building.

    It will be shown that the comment [1] contains numerous errors, misconceptions, inaccuracies, false assumptions, misunderstandings and unjustified claims. The analysis of the comment is built on a false assumption that the terminal current of an antenna fed by a waveguide is independent of frequency. This false assumption arises from the misunderstandings on the basic theory of transmission lines and misconceptions of normalization for a linear system. As a result, all the equations obtained from the assumption in the comment are incorrect, and the related discussions are untruthful. The delta gap source modeling has been abused in the comment, and this is reflected in the numerical results in the comment that give rise to negative stored energy. The main results of the commented paper have been misinterpreted by the authors of the comment, and the related analysis is established on illogical reasoning. The comment fails to pinpoint any errors in the commented paper. Instead, it reveals that the main results ...

    2013-01-01

    This study examines stylistic features of the news story comments from major online news outlets and their possible ef-fects on the evolution of the English language. With a corpus composed of 34 examples drawn from renowned news sites such as The Washington Post, The Economist, Wall Street Journal, CNN and NBC, a detailed analysis on the stylistic features and effects of the news story comments has been conducted for the purpose of discovering possible links between a poster ’s linguistic behav-ior and his thought process. The result shows that interrogative, noun phrase and verb phrase are commonly used in news story comments by virtue of their slightly ostentatious nature. Rhetorical devices such as metaphor, simile and parataxis are frequently employed among comments. And the relationship between a poster’s educational background and his postings is also touched up-on at the end of this study.

    Medical Physics strides forward The majority of physics' applications in medicine may be said to stem from two discoveries at the end of the 19th century. In 1895 Roentgen discovered x-rays and in 1896 Becquerel discovered radioactivity. Subsequently, both of these discoveries resulted in fundamental changes in the way medicine was practised. X-rays have since been used to produce images of the inside of the human body and in the treatment of cancer, with radionuclides also being used for both of these purposes. The discovery of the electron by Thomson in 1897 was also to have a major impact on medicine with the subsequent development of electro-medical instrumentation. The use of x-rays to investigate the body resulted in the development of the field of diagnostic radiology. The use of x-rays along with the radiation emitted by radioactive decay for the treatment of malignant tumours resulted in the development of the field of radiotherapy or radiation oncology. Early estimates of the amount of radiation delivered to tumours were made by observing the skin redness that occurred after exposure. However, it was realized that more quantitative and precise methods were required to determine radiation doses. This led to the appointment of physicists to hospitals to develop techniques of radiation dosimetry. As the effects of radiation on the body became better understood it was necessary to limit the indiscriminate exposure of individuals to ionizing radiation. This resulted in the field of radiation protection. After the second world war numerous artificially produced radionuclides became available. As well as being used for the treatment of cancer, radionuclides were used to localize specific organs and diseases in the body. This resulted in the development of the field of nuclear medicine. With the development of digital computers it was subsequently possible to reconstruct cross-sectional images of the body, resulting in the 1970s in computerized tomography. As a further result of developments that took place during the second world war, ultrasound scanners were developed which enabled the foetus to be viewed during pregnancy using non-ionizing radiation. Another important development utilizing non-ionizing radiation was nuclear magnetic resonance, with the potential for magnetic resonance imaging being realized in the 1980s and subsequently becoming a major diagnostic tool. There are a number of exciting developments in medical physics which may in the future contribute to a greater under- standing of how the body functions. These include the use of SQUID (superconducting quantum interference devices) magnetometers and terahertz imaging. However, it remains to be seen what impact they will have in the medical field. A century ago the medical physics profession did not exist. Today, however, thousands of individuals work in this speciality throughout the world. Over the last 50 years there has been a growth of international organizations concerned with the application of physics in medicine. See the Web Watch on page 507. There is lots of interest in medical physics, and there are always students who want to know more. If a student wants a career in medical physics they would be advised to follow a BSc in Physics or Biomedical Engineering with a specific medical physics postgraduate degree. Further details regarding career opportunities may be obtained from the Web Watch links or from the author. Physics Education would like to thank guest-editor Alan Piercy for assembling this series of useful, interesting and informative articles covering a wide range of applications of physics in medicine. These articles bring us right up to date and point the way of developments in the 21st century.

    Physics...fun? 'Physics is Fun' - it's a book, a course, a summer school... Physics, with a reputation for hard maths, nonsensical equations and crazy teachers living with a permanent bad hair day, yes, PHYSICS IS FUN! Maybe if we say it often enough our students will believe us. PHYSICS IS FUN! Keep saying it, and try to believe it. But we are scientists, and we have to look at the evidence and acknowledge the truth: when most people recall the fun times they had at school-how many think about their physics classes? Try asking them. Let's face it - although our students enjoy our exciting demonstrations, the well-structured development of concepts in our classes, and the cooperative and supportive atmosphere of our classrooms and laboratories, even when they find that their physics teachers are the most kind, considerate and approachable of people, even then, when we've done all we can to make physics pleasant, fun and exciting, our students have to fathom out physics... and that can be hard! 'Physics isn't fun in the trivial sense, it's hard work: but you get a fantastic sense of achievement when you make progress.' This is my counsel to most young people who come to discuss whether or not to opt for physics. We try our best to make the material accessible and interesting, but at the end of the day, struggling with something that intially you can't do, but eventually you can do, is part of developing in physics. But what about the teachers? November's meeting of physics teachers from across Europe, Physics on Stage, featured many of the best innovations in physics teaching from the 22 countries which sent delegations (see News). It is probably no surprise, but we need to take note that the most popular stands, talks and lectures were the ones which were most fun. And there is lots of fun to be had doing physics. Whether it is toys, music, poetry, or simply talking about the symmetry in particle physics-the most popular stands, workshops and lectures were those where teachers could enjoy the fun in physics again. Even physics teachers are human! It is so easy to get bogged down in the drudge of everyday teaching and forget the students, let alone ourselves. But if you think back to the good teachers you had at school - weren't they the ones who were enjoying themselves, and maybe not perfectly organized. There has to be a moment at which a good teacher says 'I'm going to do this, because I want to... it's fun physics!' No other justification is needed. Our new look for 2001 So here is the first issue of the new-look Physics Education - and we sincerely hope that you enjoy it. The Editorial Board and the publishing team have been working hard for the past few months to keep the best of the old format, but to make a fresher, more user-friendly publication. As incoming Editor I must acknowledge the excellent work done by Ken Dobson and Jill Membrey, the outgoing team. It is a tough act to follow, but a challenge I am privileged to undertake. As a physics teacher I know how difficult it can be to stay inspired and up-to-date, so as Editor of Physics Education I want to support your professional development as much as possible. Starting with support for student teachers (see Starting Out), through to teachers in charge of equipment and budgets (see Technical Trimmings and Reviews): we want to share good practice. Finally, let's laugh at ourselves-don't miss Signing Off: a humorous look at physics teaching. I've really enjoyed working on this new format, and I hope that you enjoy the read. Please give us lots of feedback and send in your own contributions. I'm very pleased that our first issue has two special features: to me they represent the potential and the purpose of physics education. Sport is an exciting growth area of science in which increasing numbers of students want to understand the basic laws of motion and the application of sophisticated technology; and communicating physics - well that's not just fun, it's fundamental.

    Virtual reality - whose reality? There is an old joke about a farmer who wanted to improve his milk yields and employed an engineer, a psychologist and a physicist to make suggestions. They all went away for a month and came back with their proposals. The engineer had measured the size of the milking stalls, the ambient temperature and the milking process. She suggested a modest rise in ambient temperature and an alteration in the pumping equipment. The psychologist decided to paint the stalls green and play a tape-recording of birdsong to the cows to make them feel more content and release their milk more easily. The physicist explained that he had decided to look at things more fundamentally: 'Let us assume that the cow is a sphere' ... he began. And that's the joke. Some people think that this is the funniest thing out - a physicist can't recognize a cow when they see one. What troubles me is that I didn't get the joke straight away. I am so used to the language and the often-ludicrous assumptions in physics that it did not seem particularly strange or funny. What did you think? The joke, for me, illustrates the essence of our problem in physics teaching. In a very real way, physics is about another world. It isn't about the real world in which ordinary people live, and they know it. Physics has its own language, its own laws and its own values. Depleted uranium has been in the news of late. It is interesting to compare the casual way in which physics teachers have discussed the possibilitiy that one atom of uranium can kill someone with the shock-horror reporting of this fact in the press. We are caricatured, sometimes for good reason, being callous, calculating, cold people - out of touch with the things that really matter. And then there's that other 'real world' - of really tough people who make serious money. Our friends who work out in the worlds of commerce and industry like to mutter, with some superiority, that teachers would never survive in the real world. So here we are, buffered from the 'reality' of commerce by kind managers, left to teach equations at the expense of moral standards ... Excuse me! Physics is the only subject that confronts real reality head on. Physics is all about how this world, this Universe, this reality works. Moral laws, government legislation and theories of economics are all well, and sometimes good, but they take place within this space we call Our Universe. Physics is real This issue of Physics Education contains lots of excellent suggestions for practical work - demonstrations of what happens, and suggestions for investigations. I hope that readers will find them useful and maybe share some good ideas of their own. We are dealing with stuff that actually happens, and that is what makes physics both significant and attractive. The joke I really hate runs 'If it moves it's biology, if it smells it's chemistry and if it doesn't work it's physics'. This is rubbish: gravity always works, in my experience, physics never gets it wrong. In the classroom, maybe a piece of equipment is broken, or the technician forgot the batteries, but we can never say truthfully that 'the experiment didn't work'. Virtual physics Last week a school governor challenged me to justify the cost of so much laboratory space and equipment when, nowadays, so much can be done using computers. Probably the best 'virtual physics' currently available is on CD-ROM. In this issue of Physics Education we have concentrated on CDs for our review section. There is lots of good material out there which can enhance our teaching with wonderful images, immediate feedback for students, and the possibility of continuously monitored differentiated work but, as I explained to the governor, I don't want to teach virtual physics - physics is very firmly, fairly and squarely in this real world (which may, of course, approximate to a sphere ... .).

  5. SPAM COMMENT DETECTION IN BLOG COMMENTS FROM BLOG RSS FEED BY MODIFIED TF-IDF ALGORITHM

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    FOUZIA SULTANA

    2012-03-01

    Full Text Available Publishing the opinions online through blog is growing day by day. Visibility of the blogs in search engines depends upon the page rank or PR of the blogs and PR depends upon number of links pointing to the blogs. Popular blog engines like word press; drupal allows comments system by means of which readers can leave comments after reading the blogs. Over the time automated engines are developed that can find the blogs that support comment system and publish automatic comments with links to particular websites. This is called blogspams. There are several techniques proposed to prevent blog spams but have failed to effectively detect the spams. In this work we propose a unique technique to detect blog spam based on modified TF-IDF algorithm to first find the relevancy of the comments with respect to the subject and further checking for repetition of thewords in the comments. Generally automated blog commenting or spamming publish the same comments across multiple sites and blogs, therefore this method can effectively detect the spams. The proposed technique is verified with respect to several blogs with the consent of blog webmaster. Results show the effectiveness of the technique against some of the theoretical model as well as some of the commercially available model like aksimet.

  8. Engaging a state: Facebook comments on a large population biobank.

    Science.gov (United States)

    2017-04-05

    Scholarship on newborn screening, dried bloodspot retention, and large population biobanking call consistently for improved public engagement. Communication with participants likely occurs only in the context of collection, consent, or notification, if at all. We ran an 11-week advertising campaign to inform Michigan Facebook users unlikely to know that their or their children's dried bloodspots (DBSs) were stored in a state biobank. We investigated the pattern and content of comments posted during the campaign, focusing on users' questions, attitudes and concerns, and the role the moderator played in addressing them. We used Facebook data to quantitatively assess engagement and employed conventional content analysis to investigate themes, attitudes, and social dynamics among user and moderator comments. Five ad sets elicited comments during campaign weeks 4-8, reaching ∼800,000 Facebook users ($6000). Gravitating around broad, underlying ethical, legal, and social issues, 180 posts from 129 unique users related to newborn screening or biobanking. Thirty six conveyed negative attitudes and 33 conveyed positive attitudes; 53 posed questions. The most prevalent themes identified were consent, privacy, bloodspot use, identifiability, inclusion criteria, research benefits, (mis)trust, genetics, DBS destruction, awareness, and the role of government. The moderator's 81 posts were responsive-answering questions, correcting or clarifying information, or providing information about opting out. Facebook ad campaigns can improve engagement by pushing out relevant content and creating dynamic, responsive, visible forums for discussion. Reduced control over messaging may be worth the trade-off for creating accessible, transparent, people-centered engagement on public health issues that are sensitive and complex.

    Saint-Grégoire, P.; Luk'yanchuk, I.

    1999-10-01

    We comment on the role of the novel incommensurate elongated-triangle (ELT) phase in the huge light scattering in quartz at small angles that was observed more than 40 years ago at the icons/Journals/Common/alpha" ALT="alpha" ALIGN="TOP"/>-icons/Journals/Common/beta" ALT="beta" ALIGN="TOP"/> phase transition and was associated with optical inhomogeneities of unknown nature. The relation of these inhomogeneities with the differently oriented ferroelastic blocks of the ELT phase proposed by us and co-workers in a previous publication was misinterpreted and criticized in a recent article by Aslanyan et al (Aslanyan T E, Shigenari T and Abe K 1998 J. Phys.: Condens. Matter 10 4577), who claimed also that the lock-in occurs at qicons/Journals/Common/neq" ALT="neq" ALIGN="TOP"/>0. Responding to their criticism, we claim that the ELT blocks do have ferroelastic properties which induce the inhomogeneities of optical indices and that the lock-in occurs at q = 0.

  16. Comments on "Towards Balanced Development in Pakistan".

    Science.gov (United States)

    Fitzgerald, E V

    1992-01-01

    Critical comment on the proposal of Professor Pyatt for balanced development in Pakistan focused on broad methodological issues. Professor Pyatt's approach proposes to balance efficiency criteria with longterm objectives of sustainable economic and human development: changing asset distribution through new investment and shifting investment returns in the social sector to households. I is a systematic attempt to compensate for deficits in human development. Policies would include "tariffisation of quota allocation of goods such as water, differential pricing to protect the poor; national conservation and polluter penalties; foreign aid shift to human maintenance expenditure; and reform of fiscal policy on income and expenditure to allow for support of social objectives." Patterns of property and institutional privilege can be effectively altered through market practices, such that wage goods could be subsidized in order to increase productivity. Constructive rethinking of assumptions underlying the balanced development argument is suggested, because of Pyatt model is contrary to the Dornbusch assumptions behind structural adjustment of the standard World Bank model. The assumption in question is that nontraditional expenditure on health, education, and the environment reduces unit labor costs. Concern is also raised about the approach to "efficiency wages" and the inputs of health and education, and food and housing, which are required to supply labor. Real wages might be conceptualized as affecting labor productivity in a more dynamic way than Professor Pyatt recognized. Use of human capital would be maximized and would be equivalent to the formation of new human capital. Wages may be construed to act like internal trade, where prices and markets are effectively interchanged so that farmers receive not only agricultural products, but also essential and nonessential consumer goods. Professor Pyatt's article is relevant to any country's development planning and

    This paper presents comments on the article by D. Westen and J. Weinberger , which criticized academic clinical psychologists for being cynical about clinical judgment and clinical practice.

  7. Proposed standby gasoline rationing plan: public comments

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    1978-12-01

    Under the proposed plan, DOE would allocate ration rights (rights to purchase gasoline) to owners of registered vehicles. All vehicles in a given class would receive the same entitlement. Essential services would receive supplemental allotments of ration rights as pririty firms. Once every 3 months, ration checks would be mailed out to all vehicle registrants, allotting them a certain amount of ration rights. These checks would then be cashed at Coupon Issuance Points, where the bearer would receive ration coupons to be used at gasoline stations. Large users of gasoline could deposit their allotment checks in accounts at ration banks. Coupons or checks would be freely exchangeable in a white market. A certain percentage of the gasoline supply would be set aside in reserve for use in national emergencies. When the plan was published in the Federal Register, public comments were requested. DOE also solicited comments from private citizens, public interest groups, business and industry, state and local governments. A total of 1126 responses were reveived and these are analyzed in this paper. The second part of the report describes how the comments were classified, and gives a statistical breakdown of the major responses. The last section is a discussion and analysis of theissue raised by commenting agencies, firms, associations, and individuals. (MCW)

  18. Two Comments on Predictive Picture Coding

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    1998-01-01

    Two comments on predictive picture coding are given in this paper. 1) In lossy coding, the reconstructed values of picture samples, not its original values, should be used in the prediction formula. 2) In the design of optimum predictors, the minimum entropy or subjective assessment or other criterions, could be used, depending on the applications of the prediction encoder, instead of the minimum mean square error (MMSE) criterion.

    OpenAIRE

    Moore, J

    2013-01-01

    The present comments concern Michael's concept of motivative variables, and the implications of that concept for our understanding of the nature of reinforcement as well as the extinction of responses maintained through positive and negative reinforcement. We note that both extinction and altering motivative variables decrease responding, but they do so differently. The former does so by discontinuing the response-reinforcer relation. The latter does so by altering the motivation to respond. ...

  20. Sentiment Analyzer for Arabic Comments System

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Alaa El-Dine Ali Hamouda

    2013-04-01

    Full Text Available Today, the number of users of social network is increasing. Millions of users share opinions on different aspects of life every day. Therefore social network are rich sources of data for opinion mining and sentiment analysis. Also users have become more interested in following news pages on Facebook. Several posts; political for example, have thousands of users’ comments that agree/disagree with the post content. Such comments can be a good indicator for the community opinion about the post content. For politicians, marketers, decision makers …, it is required to make sentiment analysis to know the percentage of users agree, disagree and neutral respect to a post. This raised the need to analyze theusers’ comments in Facebook. We focused on Arabic Facebook news pages for the task of sentiment analysis. We developed a corpus for sentiment analysis and opinion mining purposes. Then, we used different machine learning algorithms – decision tree, support vector machines, and naive bayes - to develop sentiment analyzer. The performance of the system using each technique was evaluated and compared with others.

    It is a cliché to call climate change a hot topic, but two news stories on carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) - a method of reducing atmospheric carbon dioxide by storing emissions underground - certainly got some readers hot under the collar. The first, "US pays price for 500m budget blunder" (12 March) described how a proposed CCS facility lost its funding after an accounting error made it appear 800m over its 1bn budget, rather than 300m.

  2. The value of patients' handwritten comments on HCAHPS surveys.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Huppertz, John W; Smith, Robert

    2014-01-01

    Some patients write comments on their Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) surveys, but survey vendors do not record them, and the value of this anecdotal information is not well understood. However, many rating websites contain both numerical ratings and anecdotal comments from consumers who wish to share their experiences, and the option to write comments enhances the appeal of these survey forums. Recent research shows that numerical ratings do not sufficiently capture the range of consumer experiences and that comments contain additional information that complements survey responses. In this study, we investigate the contribution of anecdotal comments on HCAHPS surveys to the prediction of two global outcome measures: overall hospital rating and intention to recommend. HCAHPS surveys were collected retrospectively from 589 inpatients at two community hospitals, whose answers to the HCAHPS questions plus any handwritten comments were entered into a database. Nearly 20% of the surveys contained at least one written comment. A content analysis was performed, and comments were classified as positive, negative, neutral, or mixed. Regression analyses showed that negative comments significantly affected patients' overall hospital rating with and intention to recommend the hospital. After adjusting for their quantitative ratings on the HCAHPS questions, we found that patients who wrote negative comments gave the hospitals significantly lower satisfaction and intention scores. Consistent with prior research, our study showed that the information contained in numerical HCAHPS composite measures was enhanced by patients' commentary. In addition, quantitative HCAHPS ratings appear to underestimate the feelings of people who write negative comments, validating practices at hospitals that use surveys containing negative anecdotes in quality improvement initiatives.

The comment presents methods of possible attacks by forgers, while also demonstrating that it is difficult to proceed by the normal protocol because of some errors in the formula of the scheme.

  16. Comment on the Hojman conservation quantities in Cosmology

    CERN Document Server

    Paliathanasis, A

    2015-01-01

    We comment upon the application of Hojman's method for the determination of conservation laws in Cosmology, which has been introduced by Capozziello \\& Roshan (Phys. Lett. B 726 (2013) 471 (arXiv:1308.3910)), and has been applied recently in the cosmological scenario of a nonminimally coupled scalar field by Paolella \\& Capozziello (Phys. Lett. A (2015), in press (arXiv:1503.00098)). We apply the Ansatz, $\\phi\\left( t\\right) =\\phi\\left( a\\left( t\\right) \\right) $, which was introduced by the cited authors for a minimally-coupled scalar field, and we study the Lie and Noether point symmetries for the reduced equation. We show that under this Ansatz the unknown function of the model cannot be constrained by the requirement of the existence of a conservation law and that the Hojman conservation quantity which arises for the reduced equation is nothing more than the functional form of the Noether conservation law of momentum for the free particle. Finally we show that Hojman's method for Hamiltonian syste...

  12. Classification of Helpful Comments on Online Suicide Watch Forums

    Science.gov (United States)

    Williams, Amanda G.; Ramos-Morales, María; Haye, Laura; Holaday, Tara; Cerel, Julie

    2017-01-01

    Among social media websites, Reddit has emerged as a widely used online message board for focused mental health topics including depression, addiction, and suicide watch (SW). In particular, the SW community/subreddit has nearly 40,000 subscribers and 13 human moderators who monitor for abusive comments among other things. Given comments on posts from users expressing suicidal thoughts can be written from any part of the world at any time, moderating in a timely manner can be tedious. Furthermore, Reddit's default comment ranking does not involve aspects that relate to the “helpfulness” of a comment from a suicide prevention (SP) perspective. Being able to automatically identify and score helpful comments from such a perspective can assist moderators, help SW posters to have immediate feedback on the SP relevance of a comment, and also provide insights to SP researchers for dealing with online aspects of SP. In this paper, we report what we believe is the first effort in automatic identification of helpful comments on online posts in SW forums with the SW subreddit as the use-case. We use a dataset of 3000 real SW comments and obtain SP researcher judgments regarding their helpfulness in the contexts of the corresponding original posts. We conduct supervised learning experiments with content based features including n-grams, word psychometric scores, and discourse relation graphs and report encouraging F-scores (≈ 80 – 90%) for the helpful comment classes. Our results indicate that machine learning approaches can offer complementary moderating functionality for SW posts. Furthermore, we realize assessing the helpfulness of comments on mental health related online posts is a nuanced topic and needs further attention from the SP research community. PMID:28736770

  13. Comments on Uncertainty in Groundwater Governance in the Volcanic Canary Islands, Spain

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Emilio Custodio

    2015-06-01

    Full Text Available The uncertainty associated with natural magnitudes and processes is conspicuous in water resources and groundwater evaluation. This uncertainty has an essential component and a part that can be reduced to some extent by increasing knowledge, improving monitoring coverage, continuous elaboration of data and accuracy and addressing the related economic and social aspects involved. Reducing uncertainty has a cost that may not be justified by the improvement that is obtainable, but that has to be known to make the right decisions. With this idea, this paper contributes general comments on the evaluation of groundwater resources in the semiarid Canary Islands and on some of the main sources of uncertainty, but a full treatment is not attempted, nor how to reduce it. Although the point of view is local, these comments may help to address similar situations on other islands where similar problems appear. A consequence of physical and hydrological uncertainty is that different hydrogeological and water resource studies and evaluations may yield different results. Understanding and coarsely evaluating uncertainty helps in reducing administrative instability, poor decisions that may harm groundwater property rights, the rise of complaints and the sub-optimal use of the scarce water resources available in semiarid areas. Transparency and honesty are needed, but especially a clear understanding of what numbers mean and the uncertainty around them, to act soundly and avoid conflicting and damaging rigid attitudes. However, the different situations could condition that what may be good in a place, may not always be the case in other places.

  15. All blogs are not created equal: the role of narrative formats and user-generated comments in health prevention.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Stavrositu, Carmen D; Kim, Jinhee

    2015-01-01

    This study examined the extent to which narative versus nonnarrative blogs and compliant versus defiant user comments affect optimistic bias and behavioral intentions related to skin cancer prevention. Participants (N = 181) read one of four versions of a blog post about skin cancer that described a blogger's journey with skin cancer diagnosis and treatment, and included specific recommendations for skin cancer prevention. The post was written in either narrative or nonnarrative style, and was accompanied by reader comments that either agreed or disagreed with the prevention recommendations provided. Findings indicate that blog format reduces optimistic bias and increases behavioral intentions. Specifically, narrative blogs affect the two outcomes by way of eliciting transportation into the narrative world. Blog comments, on the other hand, were shown to have inconsistent effects on optimistic bias and behavioral intentions, via perceived social norms. While the social norms elicited by compliant blog comments had a direct positive effect on behavioral intentions, the indirect effect (via optimistic bias) was negative. Theoretical and practical implications, as well as suggestions for future research, are discussed.

  16. Do Online Comments Influence the Public's Attitudes Toward an Organization? Effects of Online Comments Based on Individuals' Prior Attitudes.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Sung, Kang Hoon; Lee, Moon J

    2015-01-01

    The authors investigated the effects of reading different types of online comments about a company on people's attitude change based on individual's prior attitude toward the company. Based on Social Judgment Theory, several hypotheses were tested. The results showed that the effects of online comments interact with individuals' prior attitudes toward a corporation. People with a strong negative attitude toward a corporation were less influenced by other's online comments than people with a neutral attitude in general. However, people with a prior negative attitude were more affected by refutational two-sided comments than one-sided comments. The results suggest that the effects of user generated content should be studied in a holistic manner, not only by investigating the effects of online content itself, but also by examining how others' responses to the content shape or change individuals' attitudes based on their prior attitudes.

  18. Comment on "Scalar Einstein-Aether theory"

    OpenAIRE

    Jacobson, Ted; Speranza, Antony J.

    2014-01-01

    A recent paper studies a modification of Einstein-aether theory in which the aether vector is restricted, at the level of the action, to be the gradient of a scalar. In this comment we note that this scalar version of Einstein-aether theory is equivalent to the projectable version of the IR limit of Ho\\v{r}ava gravity when the potential for the scalar is constant. This provides a generally covariant formulation for projectable Ho\\v{r}ava gravity.

    1982-02-01

    Comments are made on a paper published in 1980 concerning the positioning of personnel dosimeters on individuals wearing protective aprons in diagnostic radiology. The main issue under discussion is whether an additional film badge should be worn on the collar to monitor head and neck exposure while wearing the lead apron over the whole body badge to avoid misinterpretations of reported 'whole body' exposure data. The recommendations on this issue are conflicting in NRCP Reports 57 and 59 and thus clarification is sought.

    2003-05-01

    This session included highlights from four guest speakers who commented on ways to reduce barriers to competition in Ontario's electric power industry. Topics of discussion included intertie transaction failures, the lack of overall investment in the market, the government's inaction which is preventing investment, the continued underwriting of Ontario Power Generation's activities by the government which discourages investment in the private sector, and indecisiveness regarding policy on coal plants. It was emphasized that investors need to know for certain that they can get a reasonable rate of return on their investments, that the market will be transparent and there will be no shift in policy.

  1. Detecting spam comments on Indonesia’s Instagram posts

    Science.gov (United States)

    Septiandri, Ali Akbar; Wibisono, Okiriza

    2017-01-01

    In this paper we experimented with several feature sets for detecting spam comments in social media contents authored by Indonesian public figures. We define spam comments as comments which have promotional purposes (e.g. referring other users to products and services) and thus not related to the content to which the comments are posted. Three sets of features are evaluated for detecting spams: (1) hand-engineered features such as comment length, number of capital letters, and number of emojis, (2) keyword features such as whether the comment contains advertising words or product-related words, and (3) text features, namely, bag-of-words, TF-IDF, and fastText embeddings, each combined with latent semantic analysis. With 24,000 manually-annotated comments scraped from Instagram posts authored by more than 100 Indonesian public figures, we compared the performance of these feature sets and their combinations using 3 popular classification algorithms: Na¨ıve Bayes, SVM, and XGBoost. We find that using all three feature sets (with fastText embedding for the text features) gave the best F 1-score of 0.9601 on a holdout dataset. More interestingly, fastText embedding combined with hand-engineered features (i.e. without keyword features) yield similar F 1-score of 0.9523, and McNemar’s test failed to reject the hypothesis that the two results are not significantly different. This result is important as keyword features are largely dependent on the dataset and may not be as generalisable as the other feature sets when applied to new data. For future work, we hope to collect bigger and more diverse dataset of Indonesian spam comments, improve our model’s performance and generalisability, and publish a programming package for others to reliably detect spam comments.

  14. TripAdvisor Comments: What are they talking about?

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    F. Amaral

    2015-12-01

    Full Text Available Social networks’ popularity has enabled new approaches in customer-business relationships, particularly in regard to tourism. Much of this is due to the global character of social networks, and the fact that tourists can freely discuss their experiences, making these comments available to others instantly. References found in literature considered the determinants, motivations and adoption of other tourists’ evaluations, and how they can be helpful to peers. These studies have been compiled based on quantitative information, particularly regarding rankings based on the number of comments and reviewers that companies have on content management sites. However, tourist evaluations go beyond just assigning a rating—there are also unstructured comments, and these have not been the object of much analysis. Thus, this work’s focus is on the analysis of the content of comments using the institutional Dineserv model, applied to restaurants and adapting it to social media.

  15. The Impact of Technology on Student Perceptions of Instructor Comments

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    David Yearwood

    2012-06-01

    Full Text Available The lack of writing skill among college graduates is often blamed on poor teaching, or alternatively, failure on the part of schools and instructors to teach the basic grammar and punctuation skills that employers remember learning in their own school years. While it may be true that teaching techniques and course content have changed over the years, a far greater cause of student inability to write clearly may be students’ negative perceptions of instructor comments. If this is indeed the case, as borne out in some earlier studies by Bardine, then how might students who grew up in a digital era view electronic comments? The prevalence of technological tools to make electronic notations increases readability, but what impact might instructors’ use of technology in making comments have on tone, completeness, and length of comments when viewed through the lens of the student writer?

  15. Effective management of regulator RI/FS comments

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Wolinsky, S.M.; Lojek, D.; George, R.D.; Houser, S.M.; Strimbu, M.J.

    1995-12-31

    This paper describes a successful strategy that facilitates regulatory approval of CERCLA documents required by compliance agreement and CERCLA, based on the experience of Operable Unit 1, Waste Storage Area, of the Fernald Environmental Management Project (FEMP). This strategy, which has become the site standard at the FEMP, was instrumental in obtaining regulator approval of the OU1 RI and FS, and early approval of the Record of Decision during a very tight compliance agreement-driven schedule. This strategy can be applied at any DOE Superfund site, especially where there is need to recover lost schedule, an incentive to meet milestones early, a need to improve the relationship between the DOE and the regulators, or where the regulatory agencies have historically provided a large volume of comments on CERCLA documents. The strategy focuses on early identification and resolution of issues relating to draft RI/FS documents, as raised in regulatory agency review comments. This pro-active strategy has the potential for schedule and cost savings, as well as for improved communication between DOE and the regulators. The strategy includes preparation of a separate comment response document, integration of comment responses with RI/FS documents, development of a database of agency comments and their resolution, and sharing lessons learned with preparers of subsequent RI/FS documents. The paper provides background on the FEMP and describes the FEMP comment response strategy; DOE and regulator interface; the Sitewide Comment Database; networked electronic file management; the process for classifying, analyzing, and responding to comments; integration with base RI/FS documents; and a conclusion.

    Wang, Li-Gang; Zubairy, M Suhail

    2013-01-01

    This comment is to show that our simulation data, based on our theory and method in Ref. [J. Phys. B 41, 055401 (2008)], are also in agreement with the experimental data presented for $D_{p}-D_{s}$ in Ref. [Phys. Rev. Lett. \\textbf{109}, 213901 (2012)]. We also demonstrate how to show the effect of spatial coherence on the GH shifts in this comment, therefore we disagree with the claims in Ref. [Phys. Rev. Lett. \\textbf{109}, 213901 (2012)].

  2. A Comment on Entropy and Area

    CERN Document Server

    Kabat, D

    1994-01-01

    For an arbitrary quantum field in flat space with a planar boundary, an entropy of entanglement, associated with correlations across the boundary, is present when the field is in its vacuum state. The vacuum state of the same quantum field appears thermal in Rindler space, with an associated thermal entropy. We show that the density matrices describing the two situations are identical, and therefore that the two entropies are equal. We comment on the generality and significance of this result, and make use of it in analyzing the area and cutoff dependence of the entropy. The equivalence of the density matrices leads us to speculate that a planar boundary in Minkowski space has a classical entropy given by the Bekenstein--Hawking formula.

  3. Comments on the planation surface once more

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    2002-01-01

    The authors reviewed the research of planation surface in recent years and commented on the development of method and theory about the planation surface. Some aspects of research, such as the restrictive planation surface, the karst planation surface, the fossil planation surface, the dating of weathering crust, the research of weathering crust and environmental evolution, extremely enriched the method and theory of the planation surface. Besides, the authors pointed out that we must take further steps to study the following issues: the deformation of planation surface, the original height of planation surface, the recognition and contrast of the planation surface. The weathering crust and planation surface should be regarded as a whole, and it will still be a principal aspect in the future.

  4. Comment on ``Adiabatic theory for the bipolaron''

    Science.gov (United States)

    Smondyrev, M. A.; Devreese, J. T.

    1996-05-01

    Comments are given on the application of the Bogoliubov-Tyablikov approach to the bipolaron problem in a recent paper by Lakhno [Phys. Rev. B 51, 3512 (1995)]. This author believes that his model (1) is the translation-invariant adiabatic theory of bipolarons and (2) gives asymptotically exact solutions in the adiabatic limit while the other approaches are considered as either phenomenological or variational in nature. Numerical results by Lakhno are in contradiction with all other papers published on the subject because his model leads to much lower energies. Thus, the author concludes that bipolarons ``are more stable than was considered before.'' We prove that both the analytical and the numerical results presented by Lakhno are wrong.

  5. Comment on "Generalized exclusion processes: Transport coefficients"

    Science.gov (United States)

    Becker, T.; Nelissen, K.; Cleuren, B.; Partoens, B.; Van den Broeck, C.

    2016-04-01

    In a recent paper, Arita et al. [Phys. Rev. E 90, 052108 (2014), 10.1103/PhysRevE.90.052108] consider the transport properties of a class of generalized exclusion processes. Analytical expressions for the transport-diffusion coefficient are derived by ignoring correlations. It is claimed that these expressions become exact in the hydrodynamic limit. In this Comment, we point out that (i) the influence of correlations upon the diffusion does not vanish in the hydrodynamic limit, and (ii) the expressions for the self- and transport diffusion derived by Arita et al. are special cases of results derived in Becker et al. [Phys. Rev. Lett. 111, 110601 (2013), 10.1103/PhysRevLett.111.110601].

  7. Statement on the comments by Hattingh et al. (2014 on the EFSA PLH Panel (2014 Scientific Opinion on Citrus Black Spot

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    EFSA Panel on Plant Health (PLH

    2015-01-01

    Full Text Available Following a request from the European Commission, the EFSA Panel on Plant Health (EFSA PLH Panel was asked to react to a document entitled “Comments on the European Union Food Safety Authority’s Pest Risk Assessment for Phyllosticta citricarpa”, authored by Hattingh et al., which was posted online in August 2014 on the website of Citrus Research International (Pty Ltd, South Africa. Citrus black spot (CBS, caused by the fungus Phyllosticta citricarpa (McAlpine Van der Aa, is a fruit-blemishing and leaf-spotting disease affecting citrus. P. citricarpa is not known to occur in the EU territory and is regulated as a quarantine organism in citrus (Council Directive 2000/29/EC. The Panel assessed the comments by Hattingh et al. in the light of the content of the EFSA PLH Panel Scientific Opinion on CBS and the EFSA report detailing responses to comments received during the public consultation on the draft opinion. The Panel stands by the EFSA PLH Panel Scientific Opinion on CBS and considers that the comments by Hattingh et al. have been thoroughly addressed in the EFSA report on the public consultation on the EFSA PLH Panel Scientific Opinion on CBS. A detailed point by point reply to the comments by Hattingh et al. is provided in an Appendix of this Panel statement. Since September 2014, EFSA has written to the lead author of the comments trying to engage in a scientific dialogue concerning the sources of uncertainty related to the risks posed by P. citricarpa to plant health in the EU, so as to identify ways to reduce such uncertainties (e.g. with further research and/or data exchange. The EFSA PLH Panel also remains open to such constructive dialogue in the future.

    Li, Songze; Maddah-Ali, Mohammad Ali; Avestimehr, A. Salman

    2015-01-01

    MapReduce is a commonly used framework for executing data-intensive jobs on distributed server clusters. We introduce a variant implementation of MapReduce, namely "Coded MapReduce", to substantially reduce the inter-server communication load for the shuffling phase of MapReduce, and thus accelerating its execution. The proposed Coded MapReduce exploits the repetitive mapping of data blocks at different servers to create coding opportunities in the shuffling phase to exchange (key,value) pair...

  3. Mining User Comment Activity for Detecting Forum Spammers in YouTube

    CERN Document Server

    Sureka, Ashish

    2011-01-01

    Research shows that comment spamming (comments which are unsolicited, unrelated, abusive, hateful, commercial advertisements etc) in online discussion forums has become a common phenomenon in Web 2.0 applications and there is a strong need to counter or combat comment spamming. We present a method to automatically detect comment spammer in YouTube (largest and a popular video sharing website) forums. The proposed technique is based on mining comment activity log of a user and extracting patterns (such as time interval between subsequent comments, presence of exactly same comment across multiple unrelated videos) indicating spam behavior. We perform empirical analysis on data crawled from YouTube and demonstrate that the proposed method is effective for the task of comment spammer detection.

  5. Effects of Online Comments on Smokers' Perception of Anti-Smoking Public Service Announcements.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Shi, Rui; Messaris, Paul; Cappella, Joseph N

    2014-07-01

    On YouTube anti-smoking PSAs are widely viewed and uploaded; they also receive extensive commentary by viewers. This study examined whether such evaluative comments with or without uncivil expressions influence evaluations by subsequent viewers. Results showed PSAs with positive (i.e. anti-smoking) comments were perceived by smokers as more effective than PSAs with negative (pro smoking) comments. Smokers in the no comment condition gave the highest perceived effectiveness score to PSAs. Smokers' readiness to quit smoking moderated the effect of comments on PSA evaluation. Smokers reading negative uncivil comments reported more negative attitude toward quitting and a lower level of perceived risk of smoking than those reading negative civil comments but positive civil and positive uncivil comments didn't elicit different responses.

  20. Reply to Comment by Holas and March

    CERN Document Server

    Nesbet, R K

    2003-01-01

    The accompanying Comment by A. Holas and N. H. March [Phys. Rev. A {\\bf 66}, 066501 (2002)] is concerned with the issue of whether or not kinetic energy can be represented by an effective local potential, as required for an exact Thomas-Fermi theory equivalent to Kohn-Sham density-functional theory. They dispute [R.K. Nesbet, Phys. Rev. A {\\bf 65}, 010502(R) (2001)], which concludes that for more than two electrons the use by Kohn and Sham of the Schr\\"odinger kinetic energy operator is variationally correct, while the equivalent local potential required for a valid Thomas-Fermi theory, a Fr\\'echet functional derivative of the Kohn-Sham ground-state kinetic energy functional, does not exist. The argument of Holas and March is clearly invalid for the simple example of the lowest triplet state of a two-electron atom with noninteracting electrons. Why this fails, as do earlier arguments in the literature, has been explained in recent publications, summarized here.

  1. Amphibian conservation: clarifications to comments from Andreone

    Science.gov (United States)

    Muths, Erin L.; Fisher, Robert N.

    2017-01-01

    We appreciate the comments from Andreone (2016) regarding our proposed alternative strategy for addressing the amphibian crisis. Andreone recognizes the utility of an Incident Command System approach but doubts the feasibility of implementation at an international level. We stated in our original article, however, that ‘the feasibility of our suggestion is debatable, but our point is that radically different approaches are necessary to effectively manage the largest extinction event in modern history’ (Muths & Fisher, 2015). There are examples of where such top-down strategies are being applied; e.g. for the brown tree snake Boiga irregularis (Stanford & Rodda, 2007), and biosecurity planning for Micronesia and Hawaii (NAVFAC Pacific, 2016). Another example is presented by Andreone. In Madagascar a community-wide conservation plan has been developed complete with prioritization of specific actions (Andreone, 2016). As with any top-down strategy, challenges will surface, especially when making decisions that affect economics. We note this caveat in our article, and Andreone points out such issues in Madagascar, where there are mismatches in priorities between biodiversity conservation and civil needs. Our suggestion is that a new paradigm needs to be considered given the gravity of amphibian decline, and one option may be to take a global approach focusing on specific, major threats. Application of an Incident Command System would not necessitate competition with, or emasculation of, local conservation priorities or actions.

  2. Experiences of the REACH testing proposals system to reduce animal testing.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Taylor, Katy; Stengel, Wolfgang; Casalegno, Carlotta; Andrew, David

    2014-01-01

    In order to reduce animal testing, companies registering chemical substances under the EU REACH legislation must propose rather than conduct certain tests on animals. Third parties can submit 'scientifically valid information' relevant to these proposals to the Agency responsible, the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA), who are obliged to take the information into account. The European Coalition to End Animal Experiments (ECEAE) provided comments on nearly half of the 817 proposals for vertebrate tests on 480 substances published for comment for the first REACH deadline (between 1 August 2009 and 31 July 2012). The paper summarises the response by registrants and the Agency to third party comments and highlights issues with the use of read across, in vitro tests, QSAR and weight of evidence approaches. Use of existing data and evidence that testing is legally or scientifically unjustified remain the most successful comments for third parties to submit. There is a worrying conservatism within the Agency regarding the acceptance of alternative approaches and examples of where registrants have also failed to maximise opportunities to avoid testing.

    ...This is the second request for public comment pertaining to a study undertaken by the U.S. Copyright Office at the request of Congress on the topic of adjudicating small copyright claims. The study will assess whether and, if so, how the current legal system hinders or prevents copyright owners from pursuing claims that have a relatively small economic value and will discuss, with appropriate recommendations, potential changes in administrative, regulatory, and statutory authority. At this time, the Office seeks additional comments on some of the possible alternatives. The Copyright Office also announces two public meetings following the comment period, to be held during November 2012 in New York and Los Angeles, respectively.

  5. How to respond to referee comments for scientific articles?

    Science.gov (United States)

    Kalemci, Mustafa Serdar; Turna, Burak

    2013-09-01

    Currently, the increasing number of article submissions to scientific journals forces editors to be more selective in their acceptance of papers. Consequently, editors have increased the frequency of their use of scientific referee mechanisms. For many researchers, the publication of a scientific article in a high impact factor journal is a gradual and difficult process. After preparation and submission of a manuscript, one of the most important issue is responding to the comments of referees. However, there is a paucity of published reports in the literature describing how to respond to these comments. The aim of this review is to assist researchers/authors in responding to referee comments as part of the publication process for scientific articles.

  6. The complete works of Gabrio Piola commented English translation

    CERN Document Server

    Maier, Giulio; Perego, Umberto; Andreaus, Ugo; Esposito, Raffaele; Forest, Samuel

    2014-01-01

    Gabrio Piola works had an enormous impact on the development of applied mathematics and continuum mechanics. An excellent scientific committee who took it upon themselves to translate his complete works. In a second step, they commented  Piola’s work and compared it to modern theories in mechanics in order to stress Piola’s impact on modern science and proofs that he has set milestones in applied mathematics. This book presents Piola's original Italian texts together with is translations and their comments. It shows impressively that Gabrio Piola’s work must still be regarded as a modern theory.

  8. Comment on ‘Wind-influenced projectile motion’

    Science.gov (United States)

    Winther Andersen, Poul

    2015-11-01

    We comment on the article ‘Wind-influenced projectile motion’ by Bernardo et al (2015 Eur. J. Phys. 36 025016) where they examine the trajectory of a particle that is subjected to gravity and a linear air resistance plus the influence from the wind. They find by using the Lambert W function that the particle's trajectory for a special angle, the critical angle {θ }{{C}}, between the initial velocity and the horizontal is part of a straight line. In this comment we will show that this result can be proved without using the Lambert W function which is not that well known to beginning students of physics.

We analyze data from a survey of online news consumers focusing on experiences and attitudes towards...... measures and feel that editorial control has intensified after the terror attacks. We conclude that newspapers should pay attention to the different needs of participants when devising strategies for editorial control. Media professionals should also consider changes to increase the transparency...

    Free-text comments in multi-source feedback are intended to facilitate change in the assessee's practice. This study was designed to utilise a large dataset of free-text comments obtained in a national pilot study in order to investigate how helpful these free-text comments may be to assessees. We investigated: (i) which areas of performance are usually addressed by free-text comments; (ii) to what extent assessors' (doctors, nurses, allied health professionals and clerical or managerial staff) comments correspond to assessees' (career-grade doctors) self-assessments, and (iii) whether the comments contain specific behavioural evidence and suggestions for change. Initially comments were read through to identify commonly recurring themes. A strong theme was 'respondent-centredness', which refers to the extent to which comments focus on issues that are of value to the assessor rather than to the assessee's personal development. In response to this, the data were re-evaluated against predefined research questions to assess how constructive comments were for the assessee's personal development. Of 11,483 assessor forms, 4777 (42%) included free-text comments. A total of 513 forms contained at least one below average score and 286 (56%) of these forms contained the assessor's free-text feedback. Free-text comments were mostly rater-centred and addressed the effect of the assessee on the colleague's working life rather than areas of relevance to the assessee's personal development. A total of 1806 assessor/assessee pairs of comments were compared; most demonstrated clear differences of opinion or interpretation. Reliability and supportiveness were over-represented; clinical performance and personal development were under-represented. The comments were unlikely to provide specific behavioural evidence or to address how change might be initiated. Our data indicate that, in their current form, the overwhelming majority of free-text comments add little to facilitate

    The cesarean section (C) frequency has increased dramatically as high as 62%. This situation has been producing a real preoccupation in all the world as well as in México. Documented bibliography about this subject, is unquestionable. We feel that at this time there is a lack of punctuals strategies in order to reduce the high frequency of C. Our communication analyzes this problem in relation to antecedents, evolution and integrated general strategies in order to reduce the C rates. Special analysis and comments involve amnioinfusion, trials for vaginal deliveries in case of previous cesarean section, prostaglandins, and external version. With these actions, at the Antiguo Hospital Civil de Guadalajara we have achieved 10.8% of C. rates, without any increase in fetomaternal morbility and/or mortality.

Hence, the disagreements between RMT and these data remain.

    Measurements of ellipticities of background galaxies are sensitive to the reduced shear, the cosmic shear divided by (1-{kappa}) where {kappa} is the projected density field. They compute the difference between shear and reduced shear both analytically and with simulations. The difference becomes more important an smaller scales, and will impact cosmological parameter estimation from upcoming experiments. A simple recipe is presented to carry out the required correction.

    The purpose of this Comment is to point out that the results presented in the appendix of M. Mondragon and M. Montesinos, J. Math. Phys. 47, 022301 (2006) provides a generic method so as to deal with cases as those of Section 6 of R. Cartas-Fuentevilla, A. Escalante-Hern\\'andez, and J. Berra-Montiel, Int. J. Mod. Phys. A 26, 3013 (2011). The results already reported are: the canonical analysis, the transformations generated by the constraints, and the analysis of the reducibility of the constraints for SO(3,1) and SO(4) four-dimensional BF theory coupled or not to a cosmological constant. But such results are generic and hold actually for any Lie algebra having a non-degenerate inner product invariant under the action of the gauge group.

    In his comment, Riemann defends the conventional kinetic Bohm criterion on the basis that the underlying approximations become rigorous in the limit \\lambda_D/l \\rightarrow 0, where \\lambda_D is the Deybe length and l is a collision length scale for the dominant collision process. Here, we expand on our previous arguments showing that the basic assumptions for the justified use of the conventional kinetic Bohm criterion are typically not satisfied in laboratory plasmas. We corroborate our argument with experimental data, as well as data from numerical simulations, showing that the conventional criterion is violated in common situations. In contrast, a formulation based on positive velocity moments of the kinetic equation provides a criterion that both agrees with the experimental data and reduces to the traditional expectations from fluid theory in the appropriate limit.

    Studies on the mental health implications of social media have generated mixed results. Drawing on a survey of college students (N=513), this research uses structural equation modeling to assess the relationship between Facebook interaction and psychological distress and two underlying mechanisms: communication overload and self-esteem. It is the first study, to our knowledge, that examines how communication overload mediates the mental health implications of social media. Frequent Facebook interaction is associated with greater distress directly and indirectly via a two-step pathway that increases communication overload and reduces self-esteem. The research sheds light on new directions for understanding psychological well-being in an increasingly mediated social world as users share, like, and comment more and more.
