Analysing the extent and severity of HIV/AIDS among educators without looking at the broader context within which schools operate, provides only a partial understanding of the immense challenges facing the education sector in South Africa. This study examines material issues affecting the quality of teaching and learning in our schools, both within and external to the classroom environment. The findings reveal significant disparities in conditions, both within and between provinces.
The emergence of social media brings chances, but also challenges, to linguistic analysis. In this paper we investigate a novel problem of discovering patterns based on emotion and the association of moods and affective lexicon usage in blogosphere, a representative for social media. We propose the use of normative emotional scores for English words in combination with a psychological model of emotion measurement and a nonparametric clustering process for inferring meaningful emotion patterns automatically from data. ...
Dialogue act classification is a central challenge for dialogue systems. Although the importance of emotion in human dialogue is widely recognized, most dialogue act classification models make limited or no use of affective channels in dialogue act classification. This paper presents a novel affect-enriched dialogue act classifier for task-oriented dialogue that models facial expressions of users, in particular, facial expressions related to confusion.

Metaphors pervade our language because they are elastic enough to allow a speaker to express an affective viewpoint on a topic without committing to a specific meaning. This balance of expressiveness and indeterminism means that metaphors are just as useful for eliciting information as they are for conveying information.
We demonstrate one aspect of an affectextraction system for use in intelligent conversational agents. This aspect performs a degree of affective interpretation of some types of metaphorical utterance. of metaphor, with a signiﬁcant degree of linguistic open-endedness. Also, note that our overarching research aim is to study metaphor as such, not just how it arises in e-drama. This increases our need for systematic, open-ended methods.
We report work1 in progress on adding affect-detection to an existing program for virtual dramatic improvisation, monitored by a human director. To partially automate the directors’ functions, we have partially implemented the detection of emotions, etc. in users’ text input, by means of pattern-matching, robust parsing and some semantic analysis. The work also involves basic research into how affect is conveyed by metaphor.
Understanding the ways in which information achieves widespread public awareness is a research question of signiﬁcant interest. We consider whether, and how, the way in which the information is phrased — the choice of words and sentence structure — can affect this process. To this end, we develop an analysis framework and build a corpus of movie quotes, annotated with memorability information, in which we are able to control for both the speaker and the setting of the quotes.
Since we can ‘spin’ words and concepts to suit our affective needs, context is a major determinant of the perceived affect of a word or concept. We view this re-profiling as a selective emphasis or de-emphasis of the qualities that underpin our shared stereotype of a concept or a word meaning, and construct our model of the affective lexicon accordingly .

We present a classiﬁer to predict contextual polarity of subjective phrases in a sentence. Our approach features lexical scoring derived from the Dictionary of Affect in Language (DAL) and extended through WordNet, allowing us to automatically score the vast majority of words in our input avoiding the need for manual labeling. We augment lexical scoring with n-gram analysis to capture the effect of context. We combine DAL scores with syntactic constituents and then extract ngrams of constituents from all sentences. ...
HUMAN CAPITAL GAINS: HOW THE INVESTMENT AND ALLOCATION OF HUMAN CAPITAL AFFECTS THE PERFORMANCE OF HIGH TECHNOLOGY INITIAL PUBLIC OFFERING FIRMS A second reason
is that schools in more stratified markets are likely to be more internally homogenous; as the
sampling variance of the school average depends linearly on the within-school variance of
individual characteristics, more internally homogenous schools imply more reliable schoollevel
Economic literature often discusses that in the area of access to finance for SMEs, a market
imperfection/failure is not only present during a deep recession but also on an ongoing basis as a
fundamental structural issue. The reasons for the market failure relate to insufficient supply of
capital (debt or equity) and inadequacies on the demand side.

Required Shot Size of the Mold
Shot size is an important characteristic of the molding machine, which affects the molding cycle. But first, what is the difference between “shot size” and “rated shot size”? “Rated shot size” is the amount (in grams or ounces) of polystyrene (PS) that the injection system (ram screw or two-stage) can inject at every cycle, and is indicated in all machine specifications. “Shot size” depends on the mass (W) of the molded product (in grams).
