OBJECTIVES This study was designed to assess the incidence of child emotional and physical abuse, associated risk factors and psychosocial symptoms in a cross-cultural comparison between post-communist bloc countries. METHOD One-thousand one-hundred forty-five children ages 10-14 from Latvia (N = 297), Lithuania ( N = 300), Macedonia (N = 302), and(More)
Cloud Computing is a technology which is susceptible to a continuous development, because of its strong advantages of accessing data from any place in the world over the Internet without concerning about the infrastructure used and the problems involved by the installation and maintenance processes. The purpose of this article is to provide an overview of(More)
AIM To evaluate the metacarpophalangeal (MCP) joints (MCP2 and 5) in healthy subjects by ultrasonography (US) using a high frequency transducer (18 MHz) and to verify the interobserver agreement. MATERIAL AND METHODS We enrolled 50 healthy volunteers (37 women, age between 30-58 years, mean age 41.7 years, divided into 3 groups according to age: 30-39,(More)
Denial of Service (DoS) and Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks appear to be main threats for cloud computing. The protection of cloud services against DoS and DDoS attacks is realized using Intrusion Detection Systems (IDSs).This paper aims to evaluate the experimental results of our proposed quantitative solution. The experiments are performed in(More)
The problem of deriving association rules from data was first formulated in [9] and is called the “market-basket problem”. This paper presents an efficient version of APRIORI algorithm for mining multi-level association rules in large databases to solve market-basket problem. Our algorithm, named DEPTH FIRST MULTI-LEVEL APRIORI (DFMLA), uses(More)
For real-time applications, task scheduling is a problem of paramount importance. Several scheduling algorithms were proposed in the literature, starting from static scheduling or cyclic executives which provide very deterministic yet inflexible behaviour, to the so called best-effort scheduling , which facilitates maximum run-time flexibility but allows(More)
Alpha protein and IgG were determined by radial immunodiffusion in Swiss mice, in the amniotic fluid, milk and serum of the mice at different ages (fetus, neonates, at the age of 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35 and 40 days and adults). The highest alpha-protein concentrations were found in the fetal serum (0.20 mg/ml) ; after birth serum levels rapidly fell and(More)
