Predictive video codecs such as MPEG and H.26x are very susceptible to prediction mismatch between encoder and decoder or "drift" when there are packet losses, leading to a significant reduction in the decoded quality. In this paper, we propose a method to reduce the drift in these codecs by sending extra information over a side-channel. Using principles(More)
This survey was a retrospective of a 16-year (1993-2008) study on the incidence, clinical features, and etiological agents of tinea capitis mainly representing the Southeastern China. The diagnosis was confirmed by direct microscopic examination. Eight hundred and sixty-six patients with tinea capitis, 381 males (44%) and 485 females (56%), were enrolled in(More)
The task of partial copy detection in videos aims at finding if one or more segments of a query video have (transformed) copies in a large dataset. Since collecting and annotating large datasets of real partial copies are extremely time-consuming, previous video copy detection research used either small-scale datasets or large datasets with simulated(More)
In this paper, a new algorithm based on pattern-list analysis is proposed for page segmentation and classification. There are three steps in the algorithm: the bounding rectangle location, the pattern formation and the pattern classification, after which the patterns that may be wrongly classified are further classified by their contextual information.(More)
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) remains the second leading cause of cancer-related death worldwide, and elevated rates of reactive oxygen species (ROS) have long been considered as a hallmark of almost all types of cancer including HCC. Protein kinase C alpha (PKCα), a serine/threonine kinase among conventional PKC family, is recognized as a major player in(More)
Antimicrobial peptides (AMPs), which present in the non-specific immune system of organism, are amongst the most promising candidates for the development of novel antimicrobials. The modification of naturally occurring AMPs based on their residue composition and distribution is a simple and effective strategy for optimization of known AMPs. In this study, a(More)
