In this Keynote Lecture, first a novel wavelet-hybrid feedback least mean square (LMS) algorithm is presented for robust control of civil structures through adroit integration of a feedback control algorithm such as the LQR or LQG algorithm, the filtered-x LMS algorithm, and wavelets. Next, a new hybrid control system is presented through judicious(More)
A methanol extract of the twigs of Cinnamomum cassia was found to possess inhibitory activity against tyrosinase. Purification of the MeOH extract afforded four new phenolics, cassiferaldehyde (6), icariside DC (9), cinnacassinol (10), and dihydrocinnacasside (13), together with 10 known compounds (1-5, 7-12, and 14). The structures of the new compounds(More)
Gardeniae Fructus is a traditional medicine used for the treatment of contusion such as ankle sprain. Geniposide is one of the main components of Gardeniae Fructus with diverse biological activities. In order to gain further insight into the therapeutic action of Gardeniae Fructus extract (GFE) and geniposide on ligament injuries, a new in vitro model was(More)
The iridoid glycosides, genipin 1-O-beta-D-isomaltoside (1) and genipin 1,10-di-O-beta-D-glucopyranoside (2), together with six known iridoid glycosides, genipin 1-O-beta-D-gentiobioside (3), geniposide (4), scandoside methyl ester (5), deacetylasperulosidic acid methyl ester (6), 6-O-methyldeacetylasperulosidic acid methyl ester (7), and gardenoside (8)(More)
Cytotoxic bioassay-guided fractionation of methanol extract of Angelicae Sinensis Radix led to the isolation of a new dimeric Z-ligustilide, named neodiligustilide (1), together with three known compounds, Z-ligustilide (2), 11(S),16(R)-dihydroxy-octadeca-9Z, 17-dien-12,14-diyn-1-yl acetate (3), and 3(R),8(S)-falcarindiol (4). Among them, 2 showed the(More)
Two new lignans, 4-methoxymagnaldehyde B (1) and coumanolignan (2), were isolated from the stem bark of Magnolia obovata, together with 11 known compounds (3-13). The structures of compounds 1 and 2 were determined to be 5'-allyl-2'-hydroxyphenyl-4-methoxy-3-cinnamic aldehyde (1) and 6-allyl-8-(5'-allyl-2'-hydroxyphenyl)coumarin (2) on the basis of(More)
Increasing conflicts over allocation have heightened interest among fishery managers in reliable and comparable measures of the relative economic contribution of commercial and sport fisheries. This paper shows how discrete choice methods may be applied to develop comparable estimates of net economic benefits of a proposal to reallocate sockeye salmon from(More)
Two new lanostane triterpenes, methyl lucidenate N ( 1) and T-butyl lucidenate B ( 2), were isolated from the fruiting bodies of GANODERMA LUCIDUM together with five known compounds ( 3- 7). The structures of the two new triterpenes were established as methyl 3 β,7 β-dihydroxy-4,4,14 α-trimethyl-11,15-dioxo-5 α-chol-8-en-24-oate ( 1) and T-butyl 7 β,12(More)
