  • There are mainly four types of segmentation techniques, namely global thresholding, boundary-based segmentation, region-based segmentation, and mixed segmentation. Seeded Region Growing is an integrated method brought up by Adams and Bischof [4-13], in which few initial seeds are generated, and more similar neighboring regions are then combined to achieve region growing [14-21]. In addition, the method of unsupervised vector seeded region growing suitable for medical multi-spectral images was established.

  • However, cellular uptake of aglycones has been suggested to occur in their native form by passive diffusion. Absorbed polyphenols can directly undergo phase II metabolism as phenolic structures are generally unfavorable substrates to the cytochrome P450s (phase I metabolism). At nutritional doses, almost all polyphenols are conjugated to form O- glucuronides, sulfate esters and O-methyl ethers, by glucuronidation, sulfation and methylation, in the gut mucosa and later in the liver or kidney.

  • In the initial demonstration using music by DJ Spooky to accompany Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, 72.2 percent of students felt that the music enhanced their engage- ment with the film. Additionally, 19.4 percent found that the music detracted from their viewing experience and 8.3 percent felt that it neither enhanced nor detracted. Alternatively, these statistics point out that 80.5 percent of students had no objections to the use of a modern score. In contrast, 47.8 percent of stu- dents felt that a symphonic or string instrument score would have enhanced their engagement, but only 9.

  • Varying beliefs about disease etiology may also serve to minimize the prevalence of trachoma. Beliefs about the causes of disease range from blindness caused by old age to illness induced by the glance of an envious person. Cultural beliefs in an Egyptian Delta hamlet discourage the discussion of trachoma since villagers believe trichiasis can be spread by word of mouth, and discussion of the disease is equal to questioning the will of God. In one study, villagers’ assessments of their quality of vision greatly exceeded evaluations by ophthalmologists.

This research study attempts to understand some of the challenges that changing demographics will have on the housing market and...

  • This ambivalence in the pagan religions toward peace and war is found in the texts of the main religious traditions. Many ‘sacred’ texts are flooded with images of a vengeful and violent God: a God of war who destroys our enemies and punishes us if we stray. Elise Boulding observes: ‘The warrior god has dominated the stories of our faith communities, so that the other story of human caring and compassion and reconciliation, is often difficult to hear’. 8 But,...

  • With an emphasis on the potential for disruption and change, there is in such writing a characterisation of the consumer of counterfeits that employs a binary opposition between the ‘normal’ or legitimate world and the ‘abnormal’ or oppositional practices. For example, sociological research on file sharing through peer-to-peer (P2P) networks, internet exchange of pirated music, films and software along with digital rights management (DRM) hacks, represents users as part of a distinctive subculture (e.g. Condry, 2004; Giesler and Pohlmann, 2003)....

  • The widespread appeal of Hollywood movies is due not only to the studios’ economic power and marketing prowess but also to the formal-aesthetic qualities of the films themselves. This third aspect of the term Hollywood has changed somewhat less than the industrial and institutional aspects, in that the cinematic style and narrative struc- ture of Hollywood movies have persisted over the decades, despite the obvious need for novelty and innovation. In other words, what we call a “Hollywood movie” is much the same artifact today as it was in the late teens and early 1920s.

  • For optimal results in a 10km you will need to run at an intensity slightly above your anaerobic threshold. This is quite intense in terms of physiological demand, particularly for those wishing to achieve the distance in between 40 and 60 minute. The primary difference between the 5km and 10km in terms of demand is that the 10km uses a greater amount of aerobic energy, and therefore strength and endurance are also very important.

  • Although there is no economic freedom index for metropolitan areas, there are data available on taxes and spending. One of the most important components of the various economic freedom indices is the tax burden. Taxes remove resources from private decision- makers and put them in the hands of elected officials and bureau- crats. The latter face much weaker incentives to use those resources efficiently and lack the information to be able to do so. As a result, jurisdictions with higher tax burdens will tend to have less prosper- ous economies.

  • If governments wish to encourage investors to finance climate change and green growth projects in future, clear and consistent policies over a long period of time are needed – most notably a clear signal in terms of carbon pricing (e.g. via emissions targets). For example, as Hamilton (2009) points out, renewable energy policy and regulatory framework is the critical element influencing where capital is deployed. Such policy needs to be „loud‟ (i.e.

  • The fair value method recognizes that the most relevant attribute for reporting investments is fair value. Therefore, at reporting dates, investments are adjusted to fair value. Gains and losses are excluded from net income until the investment is sold. This is an attempt to avoid recognition of gains and losses that have not been realized through sale. EXAMPLE As an example of the fair value method, assume that on 1 December 20X5, YZone Manufacturing Limited purchased two investments, both designated as available- for-sale investments.

One feature of wisdom, which presumably is acquired over a lifetime, is meta-knowledge, accurately knowing one’s own knowledge and abilities.We assessed this through self-reported confidence on answers to trivia questions.

  • There is no set formula to ensuring press coverage. Do not be discouraged if the press does not cover your event. Current events and other competing interests affect media availability on any given day. If you do not get covered in one event, try, try again. The more times a press release with your organization’s name on it comes across an editor’s desk, the more they will learn about you and possibly cover you in the future. Focus on the smaller, community newspapers, rather than jumping straight to The New York Times.
