The performance of speaker identification systems has improved due to recent advances in speech processing techniques but there is still need of improvement in term of text-independent speaker identification and suitable modelling techniques for voice feature vectors. It becomes difficult for person to recognize a voice when an uncontrollable noise adds in(More)
Automatic Speaker Recognition technology has recently been implemented in large number of commercial areas successfully. Speaker recognition is being used in voice based biometrics; voice controlled appliances, security control for confidential information, remote access to computers and many more interesting areas. This paper introduces text dependent(More)
ETHNOPHARMACOLOGIC RELEVANCE Artemisia judaica L. (Arabic name: Beithran), is a medicinal and aromatic plant growing in the valley bottoms of desert areas, particularly in the southern desert of Jordan nearest to the Jordan-Saudi Arabia borders and in Wadi Araba in the Southern Badia. In Jordan, A. judaica is widely used in traditional medicine being(More)
Every feature extraction and modeling technique of voice/speech is not suitable in all type of environments. In many real life applications, it is not possible to use all type of feature extraction and modeling techniques to design a single classifier for speaker identification tasks because it will make the system complex. So instead of exploring more(More)
Fifty-six stilbenoids isolated from the families of Welwitschiaceae and Gnetaceae were screened for growth inhibitory activity against HL60 cells, and two compounds (gnemonol G and gnetin I) among them exhibited a strong activity with IC(50) of 10.0 microM and 12.2 microM at 48 h incubation, respectively. The growth suppression by gnemonol G and gnetin I(More)
BACKGROUND Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) is a new treatment option for patients with severe aortic stenosis. Pre-TAVI procedure workup includes computed tomography angiography (CTA) of the heart and aorta from aortic annulus to the iliofemoral arteries. Frequently, there are a number of incidental non-cardiac findings (INCFs) in pre-TAVI(More)
Two new sesquiterpene lactone glycosides, namely melitensin 15-O-β-D-glucoside (1) and 11β,13-dihydrosalonitenolide 15-O-β-D-glucoside (2), along with eight known compounds (3-10) were isolated from the aerial part of Cnicus benedictus L. Their structures were elucidated from analyses of extensive spectroscopic data. Compounds 1-6 all possessed an(More)
