The papers are on subjects of topical interest and are technical in character. The views expressed in them are those of their authors and not necessarily the(More)
Gibbon ape leukaemia virus (GALV) and koala retrovirus (KoRV) share a remarkably close sequence identity despite the fact that they occur in distantly related mammals on different continents. It has previously been suggested that infection of their respective hosts may have occurred as a result of a species jump from another, as yet unidentified vertebrate(More)
The long-term CVC allows patients with a variety of diseases to lead a more normal and pain-free life. The use of these catheters has become commonplace in most hospitals, and the physician caring for patients in the ICU will be caring for increasing numbers of patients with an indwelling long-term CVC. Infections of these catheters can be manifested in(More)
We describe in this paper our gesture detection and recognition system for the 2014 ChaLearn Looking at People (Track 3: Gesture Recognition) organized by ChaLearn in conjunction with the ECCV 2014 conference. The competition's task was to learn a vacabulary of 20 types of Italian gestures and detect them in sequences. Our system adopts a multi-modality(More)
The brown widow spider, Latrodectus geometricus C. L. Koch, has become newly established in southern California during the first decade of the 21st century. Brown widows and egg sacs were collected within the urban Los Angeles Basin using timed searches. We also collected and compared the abundance and distribution of the native western black widow spider,(More)
This paper deals with recognizing human actions in depth video data. Current state-of-the-art action recognition methods use hand-designed features, which are difficult to produce and time-consuming to extend to new modalities. In this paper, we propose a novel, 3.5D representation of a depth video for action recognition. A 3.5D graph of the depth video(More)
