Relative Quality and Popularity Evaluation of Multilingual Wikipedia Articles
Despite the fact that Wikipedia is often criticized for its poor quality, it continues to be one of the most popular knowledge base in the world. Articles in this free ...
Isolation and Studies on Bacterial Endophytes from Two Venezuelan Rice Cultivars
Rice is currently the most important food crop in the world and we are only just beginning to study the bacterial associated microbiome. It is of importance to perform screenings ...
Defensive Signal Processing: The Case for the Use of Nonparametric and Robust Statistical Methods to Reduce Product Liability Exposure
This paper makes the case that in an Internet of Things (IoT) world where data processing has become pervasive, the assessment of whether or not the underlying (statistical) modeling assumptions ...
High Ethanol Contents of Spirit Drinks in Kibera Slums, Kenya: Implications for Public Health
Cheap licit and artisanal illicit spirit drinks have been associated with numerous outbreaks of alcohol poisoning especially with methanol. This study aimed to evaluate the quality of cheap spirit drinks ...
Chromosome pairing and recombination in male hybrids between two chromosome races of the common shrew (Sorex araneus L., Soricidae, Eulipotyphla)
The hybrid zone between chromosome races of the common shrew (Sorex araneus) provides an exceptional model to study the potential role of chromosome rearrangements in the initial steps of speciation. ...


Rosetta Mission: Electron Scattering Cross Sections—Data Needs and Coverage in BEAMDB Database
The emission of [O I] lines in the coma of Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko during the Rosetta mission have been explained by electron impact dissociation of water rather than the process of ...
Bayesian Analysis of Competing Risks Models with Masked Causes of Failure and Incomplete Failure Times
Bayesian analysis for masked data under competing risk frameworks is studied for the purpose of assessing the impact of covariates on the hazard functions when the failure time is exactly ...
A Case Study on Large Deformation Failure Mechanism of Coal given Chamber and Invention of a New Wall-Mounted Coal Bunker in Xiashijie Coal Mine with Soft, Swelling Floor Rock
Serious damage caused by floor heave in the coal given chamber of a vertical coal bunker is one of the challenges faced in underground coal mines. Engineering practice shows that ...
Influence of Alkali Metal Substitution on the Phase Transition Behavior of CsGaQ2 (Q = S, Se)
The formation of solid solution series Cs1-xMxGaQ2-mC64 (M = K, Rb; Q = S, Se; x = 0–1) was studied by X-ray diffraction and spectroscopic methods, revealing a complete miscibility ...
Impact of Graphene on the Polarizability of a Neighbour Nanoparticle: A Dyadic Green's Function Study
We discuss the renormalization of the polarizability of a nanoparticle in the presence of either (i) a continuous graphene sheet or (ii) a plasmonic graphene grating, taking into account retardation ...
