Food as Commons or Commodity? Exploring the Links between Normative Valuations and Agency in Food Transition
The food system, the most important driver of planetary transformation, is in a deep crisis. Therefore, seeking a sustainable and socially-fair transition pathway becomes an issue of utmost priority for ...
Physical Intelligence and Thermodynamic Computing
This paper proposes that intelligent processes can be completely explained by thermodynamic principles. They can equally be described by information-theoretic principles that, from the standpoint of the required optimizations, are ...
Surveillance of Mosquitoes for Zika Virus in Westchester County, New York
Geographic expansion and potential gains in the virulence of Zika virus emerged in Brazil during 2015. In 2016, New York State issued emergency regulations after the World Health Organization declared ...
It Takes Two to Evolve Too. The Hypothesis on Three Primary Communication Transitions in Evolution
Currently there is little doubt left on the symbiogenetic nature of eukaryotes - genomes of archaeon and bacterium participated in shaping a genome of last eukaryotic common ancestor in equal ...
Revealing Phenomena of Heat Energy, Levity, Gravity, Photons Characteristic Current to Light on Dealing Matter to Sub-Atom
Technology has reached to its climax but the basic understanding of science in many phenomena is still awaited. Scientific research reveals strong analogy between electron and photon. Atoms that execute ...

Resonant Rectifier ICs for Piezoelectric Energy Harvesting Using Low-voltage Drop Diode Equivalents
Herein, we present the design technique of a resonant rectifier for piezoelectric (PE) energy harvesting. We propose two diode equivalents to reduce the voltage drop in the rectifier operation, a ...
Shape and Geometric Features-based Semantic Image Retrieval Using Multi-class Support Vector Machine
In this paper, a new approach to retrieve semantic images based on shape and geometric features of image in conjunction with multi-class support vector machine is proposed. Zernike moment as ...
Effect of Carboxymethyl Cellulose on the Mechanical and Barrier Properties of Sago Starch Based Films
Using biodegradable films is increasingly growing since they contain natural materials. In this study, sago starch and carboxymethyl Cellulose (CMC) were used in film preparation. Sago starch films with 0, ...
Global Existence and Exponential Decay for a Dynamic Contact Problem of Thermoelastic Timoshenko Beam with Second Sound
In this paper, we study the global existence and exponential decay for a dynamic contact problem between a Timoshenko beam with second sound and two rigid obstacles, of which the ...
v-Mapper: An Application-Aware Resource Consolidation Scheme for Cloud Data Centres
Cloud computing refers to applications delivered as services over the Internet. Cloud systems employ policies that are inherently dynamic in nature and that depend on temporal conditions defined in terms ...
