What Do We Know about Individuals Who Are Assessed as Being at Moderate Risk for Future Fracture in Canada?

What Do We Know about Individuals Who Are Assessed as Being at Moderate Risk for Future Fracture in Canada?

Two reviewers (KS, KA) independently reviewed titles and abstracts to determine each study’s eligibility, as recommended [8]. If the eligibility of the article was not clear from the title and/or abstract, the full article was retrieved to determine if the article met the inclusion criteria. If articles failed to meet one eligibility criterion, they were not reviewed further. Questions about individual articles and disagreements between the two review- ers were discussed with the first author who made a final decision on whether an article was eligible or not. As recommended [9], all studies that were deemed eligible for the review were retrieved, assigned a unique identi- fying number, and downloaded into a shared folder.

Given t wo profiles the algorith m returns a positive nu mber, which is a measure of d issimilarity. For identical te xts, and more generally, for te xts that has identical L most frequent n - grams, the dissimilarity are 0. Using this measure and a set of author profiles, we can easily assign a te xt to an author by generating a text profiles and assigning the text to the category with which the calculated dissimila rity is min ima l. Moreover, in order to get better result text size data sho uld be separated and of same size appro ximately whereas tra in size can varies and use to train the system.

The generic originality of Iurii Tynianov's representation of Pushkin in the novels 'Pushkin' and 'The Gannibals'

The generic originality of Iurii Tynianov's representation of Pushkin in the novels 'Pushkin' and 'The Gannibals'

Undeterred by such criticism Tynianov addressed himself to his much relished project of writing a novel about Pushkin, the theme that had been magisterial in his entire creative life. It was the only work that took him more than a decade to write (1932-1943), and even then remained unfinished. As a literary historian Tynianov had already written prolifically about Pushkin, but it was in his novel, whose genre Eikhenbaum defined as an ‘artistic dissertation’, 31 that he aimed to penetrate the enigma of Pushkin’s personality and bring him close to the reader. By exploring the private introverted world of a great poet, Tynianov exposed for investigation the universal question of genius: what makes it appear at a particular moment in history and what makes it peculiarly national and, in this case, Russian? To answer this question it was necessary for him to probe further than Pushkin’s immediate family, relationships and education; indeed in July 1932 Tynianov had already begun a novel called The Gannibals which was to form the first stage of a novelistic biography of Pushkin, treating Pushkin’s maternal African ancestry. A year later he abandoned the project, possibly because he became aware of the problems involved in beginning the Pushkin story so far back in time (in 1698 to be precise, a century before Aleksandr Pushkin was actually born); with advancing illness shortening his life, he would need to hurry if he wanted to concentrate on the biography of the poet himself. 32 Belinkov, however, has argued that the novel about the Gannibals was the direct and natural development of the historical and stylistic conceptions of the Griboedov novel, and the novellas Lieutenant Kijé and The Wax Effigy, and that in the reigning literary and political atmosphere a work of that kind was already doomed to remain unpublished. Tynianov’s novella Young Vitushishnikov, neither politically heretical nor excessively experimental linguistically, was published that very year and was met with gloom and hostile incredulity, a reaction which must have sent him a stark warning of how this kind of modernist writing would be received in the current climate. 33 In Chapter 4 of the present thesis I will suggest another reason for Tynianov’s abandonment of the project, but for the time being it will suffice to say that he never returned to the Gannibals project, and the manuscript was believed to be lost, until in the 1960’s it was discovered in the extant part of Tynianov’s archive and was subsequently published.

AUTHOR IDENTIFICATION OF HINDI POETRY

AUTHOR IDENTIFICATION OF HINDI POETRY

accuracy for the BOW approach was 73.9% and it was achieved using the support vector machine (SVM) classifier. In [6], authors have introduced three graph based models for the task of authorship identification, that consider the interaction of character sequences, phraseological patterns and structure of the sentences in the document to construct separate graphs for each author. For all of these models, graphs for different authors are combined to generate a aggregated weighted training graph. Then the testing graph is compared with training graph with help of simple graph traversal technique. The corpus used in this experiment is conducted on the documents of six authors from Bengali literature. Experimental results show that our models significantly outperform four state-of-the art models.

Literary and Philosophical Heritage of Symbolism (on Problem of Searching for Truth)

Literary and Philosophical Heritage of Symbolism (on Problem of Searching for Truth)

century, which period is known for the crisis that struck all the spheres of life of the time – social and economic, political, philosophical, aesthetic. It is for this reason that the intellectuals of the time reflected on the crisis in their artistic, philosophical and spiritual search. In particular, this can be traced in the works of Russian and foreign modernists. In that period, the problem of creative cognition as a special ideology and a way to create life becomes of particular importance. The relevance of this work is defined by striving to outline certain approaches to solving this problem. The aim of this research is to identify the particularities of the subject-object relationship and how it forms in a literary work while enabling the author to build an adequate symbolist picture of the world, to transform and create it. The aspect examined by the authors of this article will help analyse the system of symbolism, just like any other theory, from the philosophical standpoint. One can use the results of this research when developing new programmes for basic and special courses in the history of 20th-century Russian literature and culture to be taught at university or at school.

for the health of populations [1]. These are essential for policymakers and program planners to inform their decisions about what actions to take and what services to provide in order to improve the health of the populations they serve [2]. The Government of India in its National Health Policy of 2002 acknowledged the absence of systematic and scientific population health statistics as a major deficiency in India [3]. Presentation of research work at scientific meetings and professional societies is an important first step toward effective scientific communication of research results. The ability to effectively identify high-quality abstracts worthy of acceptance, presentation, and possible publication, is based on the criteria used to rank submissions [7]. Now it is recognized as an important component of the grey literature. Overall review of these abstracts can also help to understand and track down the research priorities of the faculty members. Concern is that the small proportion of such research appearing in the scientific journals after peer-review. With this background we have carried out an appraisal of abstracts published in the souvenir of the National Conference of IAPSM held at Nagpur during January 2013•

Crime fiction and the publishing market

Crime fiction and the publishing market

reason as the publisher. Agents are in the business to make money. The last thing they need is a stable full of authors who don’t earn very much when the world is full of writers who can be touted as ‘The next Ian Rankin’. The fact that the writer they are touting may not match up to the claim doesn’t stop publishers, marketing people, the media, and the public from wanting to believe it, albeit briefly – briefly being long enough to get the cash in the till – for spin is everything. However, let’s assume that an author doesn’t lose their agent as well as their publisher, or that if they do, they find another agent, who finds them another publisher. This second publisher is unlikely to pay them anything like the advance they received from the first publisher, for the second publisher will know that the author was dropped the first time around because their books didn’t sell half as well as the first publisher thought they might. 27 But as Peter Ayrton points out, ‘Fortunately, there are more and more small fiction publishers – Alma, Arcadia, Old Street, Telegram etc. − who are prepared to publish with flair and enthusiasm new books my mid-list authors dropped by the larger houses. And it is salutary to remember (and I often do!) that Serpent’s Tail’s biggest success to date by a mile is We Need to Talk About Kevin 28 (10,000,000 copies sold) by Lionel Shriver, a writer published by four or five large houses whose eight previous titles had all sold poorly’. 29

In order to guarantee a high quality process of selection and publication, the manuscripts received by the CALJ editor pass through a revision process prior to being approved. Once a manuscript is received the assistant to the editor does a first technical revision of the required sections for scientific articles and proceeds to classify it in one of the sections of the journal and the members of the editorial committee evaluate the contents of the article and assign two external evaluators. The articles that are not ready to be sent to evaluators are returned to the authors for revisions to the content or format of the article until if fulfils the requirements to proceed to assign evaluators. Once the article passes this first revision it is send to two external evaluators from the Editorial Review Board of the journal for a double blind peer review process. The evaluation can take from one to two months. In cases when there is a disagreement in the concepts provided by the two evaluators a third internal or external evaluator is required to provide an evaluative concept. The evaluators are invited to evaluate the manuscripts and they receive a copy of the article and a copy of the evaluation format. Once we receive the two concepts

Thomas Nashe and the Idea of the Author

Thomas Nashe and the Idea of the Author

Nashe: Prose, Drama, and the Oral Culture of Early Modern London which discussed Nashe with specific focus on his dramatic output. This was followed in July 2018 by a three-day conference called Thomas Nashe and his Contemporaries with papers covering a number of Nashe’s works and discussions based on various subjects including Nashe relationship with both Spenser and, in a separate panel, Gabriel Harvey. The work being carried out by the project is intriguing and would appear to have some overlap with this thesis; however, my area of focus is different to those involved in this undertaking as I am concentrating on Nashe as a solo author and how he represents the authors who have had an impact on his works. I am also not only looking at his contemporaries but also examining those referenced from the past as referenced by Nashe’s reading habits which leads me to engage with writers from the classical era and the Italian renaissance as well as those from his own time. I am also not concerned with how the manuscripts came to print or how his play or plays were staged; in this thesis the focus is very much on the written word appearing on the page with very little focus on the practicalities of being a writer in the 1590’s.

Study on Talent Introduction Strategies in Zhejiang University of Finance and Economics Based on Data Mining

Given a set of data items and a set of transactions set, the aim of correlation analysis is to analyze the frequency relationship of data item set in the transaction set, then we can excavate the interrelationships hidden in data. The mining method which uses association analysis is called association rules. The most classic association rules mining’s algorithm is Apriori algorithm, which is proposed by Agrawal. The basic idea of Apriori algorithm is to traversal search the database. In the first iteration, the data item frequency sets with the number of all elements 1 are calculated. Then repeat the lookup to find all the 2-frequent sets. In the k-th iteration, the data items with all the elements k are calculated. At the end of each traversal, it ends when no

Once we receive the two concepts from the evaluators we contact the author and inform about the results of the evaluation. In the case the article requires minor revisions to its content as suggested by the evaluators the author(s) are given 2 weeks to do so. In the contrary, when the article is not accepted the assistant also informs the author immediately of the results of the evaluation. Regularly, from the moment a manuscript is received to the moment the authors are informed about the acceptance or rejection of a manuscript the process can take from 3 months.

Sleep in the Work of Marcos José Salgado, Author of the First Book of Physiology in the Americas, Published in 1727

“As often occurs, intermittent fevers may come to be so long such that no perceptible interruption may be noted; on the contrary, before one onset runs out, a new one may arrive; such fevers are rightfully called “sub- intrantes,” those that enter stealthily; during this, the sick may not be allowed or able to attain sleep without fever; you must understand, since the fever lessens in time, one may be able to sleep free from nuisance. Indeed, it is considered that at any time fever is harmful; at first, as I said, the dangerous fever may cause suffocation; when the fever increases, it can make the problem worse, due to the reduction in breathing, which is also re- duced during sleep; and the rest state also reduced the breathing. Neither in this state, because then it is time for evacuation, and all sleep contains evacuations beyond sweat, the pursuit of which causes a decline, nor when the decline remains free as befitting administered sleep, can the fever be eradicated; while anything else may be especially inevitable, lest the forces certainly collapse; it is necessary to establish that if sleep lasts a short time, it should be considered harmful; it is certain that a rise in temperature (fever) should be passed without sleep; however, when an interval is observed, with no fever, it will be time to sleep, and a similar rule was established to eat, that is, in the far time from the start; so that care must be taken over this period than any other, and if there are enough time to eat and digest the food; if the interval was short, or if there is no interval between two periods of fever, in the final state; it should be consumed soft food without fats . In addition, sleep should be brief, due to, both, sleep and food with fever manifests with weakness and also affecting natural forces. They are harmful, however, they should be avoided as far as possible, when in doubt, consult what have been written the brightest medical practitioners”.

GLOFs in the WOS: bibliometrics, geographies and global trends of research on glacial lake outburst floods (Web of Science, 1979–2016)

GLOFs in the WOS: bibliometrics, geographies and global trends of research on glacial lake outburst floods (Web of Science, 1979–2016)

It has also been shown that an apparent geographical disproportionateness exists between the hotspots of GLOF occurrence (see Sect. 3.2.1) and top countries performing GLOF research (see Sect. 3.2.2), leading to the geographical “export” of research (see Sect. 3.2.3) – a phenomenon not yet fully captured within the context of the GLOF research field. Considering the items published in the WOS Core Collection database (see Sect. 2.1), the research on GLOFs is tradition- ally dominated by researchers from Europe and North Amer- ica (see Sect. 3.2.2), while researchers from other countries – especially those overlapping with GLOF hotspots located in developing regions – have mostly focused on producing local publications and reports (see Sect. 2.1) and have come into play more recently, frequently as members of international research teams, but also as the first authors (Zaginaev et al., 2016; Colonia et al., 2017; Gherardini and Nucciotti, 2017; Prakash and Nagaraja, 2017). This trend can be explained by the increasing interest of local researchers in publishing research items indexed in WOS, instead of traditionally pro- duced local publications and reports (see Sect. 2.1).

M. E. Tranter states that Christie Palmerston - explorer and prospector - was not, as legend suggests, the natural son of Lord Palmerston, but was the son of Casino Jerome, the 10th Marquis de Carandini of Sarzone, Italy, and his wife Mary Burgess, the daughter of a London coachman who had migrated to Van Dieman's Land. Palmerston's mother was a noted opera singer, known as Madame Carandini, who toured in the U.S.A., India and New Zealand. During his youth, Palmerston spent time working on Milanjie Station in the Broad Sound district of Queensland. He seems to have been first heard of in North Queensland c.1873 at the Palmer River area. On 6th December, 1886, he married Theresa Rooney in Townsville, with whom he had one daughter, Rosina, born on 13th June, 1889. Family responsibilities saw him temporarily forgo his prospecting and exploring in favour of hotel-keeping for some years, though he later went prospecting in Borneo and then Malaya, where he became ill and died, aged forty- six.
