Computer programming is the core of computer science curriculum. Several programming languages have been used to teach the first course in computer programming, and such languages are referred to as first programming language (FPL). The pool of programming languages has been evolving with the development of new languages, and from this pool different(More)
Reports of gender differences amongst arsonists at psychiatric assessment are not uncommon, however some are based on relatively small samples. A new retrospective study highlighting gender differences could help to confirm or refute the current state of knowledge. The aim of the current study was to examine gender differences amongst a sample of 167 adult(More)
Grid technologies are appealing to deal with the challenges raised by computational neurosciences and support multi-centric brain studies. However, core grids middleware hardly cope with the complex neuroimaging data representation and multi-layer data federation needs. Moreover, legacy neuroscience environments need to be preserved and cannot be simply(More)
This paper presents a novel content-based image retrieval technique based on Gaussian mixture probability model. The proposed technique provides the solution toward matching arbitrary images based on color, shape and texture. Glyph structure of the image, which inclines on the shape and texture attributes, is modeled and used for content matching. Gaussian(More)
The widespread adoption of mobile electronic devices and the advent of wearable computing have encouraged the development of compact alternatives to the keyboard and mouse. These include one-handed keyboards, digitizing tablets, and glove-based devices. This paper describes a combination pointer position and non-chorded keystroke input device that relies on(More)
Recently discovered orexigenic peptide, ghrelin, which is primarily produced by gastrointestinal tract, has been implicated in the malignant cell proliferation and invasion, presumably through an autocrine/paracrine mechanism. This study was aimed to identify the role of endogenously produced ghrelin in colorectal cancer progression. Malignant intestinal(More)
