Collaborative filtering is one of the widely used technologies in the e-commerce recommender systems. It can predict the interests of a user based on the rating information of many other users. But the traditional collaborative filtering recommendation algorithm has the problems such as lower recommendation precision and weaker robustness. To solve these(More)
OBJECTIVE Public attitudes about three proposed laws prohibiting weight discrimination in the US, from 2011 to 2013 were examined. METHODS An online survey using a diverse national sample of US adults to assess their level of support for three specific laws against weight discrimination was conducted. Data collection occurred between June and July in 2011(More)
We report the application of Vitamin D3 (VD(3)) in nanoparticles of oleoyl alginate ester (OAE)(OAE-VD(3)). The internalization of fluorescent OAE-VD(3) by Caco-2 cells was visualized by confocal laser scanning microscopy. In vivo pharmacokinetic studies showed that incorporation into OAE nanoparticles resulted in increased absorption of VD(3). Its(More)
The longicorn beetle Xylotrechus grayii (White, 1855) has been spreading rapidly in China, causing mass mortality of honeysuckle which is economically and medicinally important. In order to elucidate the mechanisms of mate and host location and to advance efficient control methods, antennal sensilla features were investigated in both sexes of X. grayii(More)
Public health interventions must address poor diet among U.S. children, but research is needed to better understand factors influencing children's food choices. Using an online grocery store simulation, this research piloted a novel method to assess children's snack selection in a controlled but naturalistic laboratory setting, evaluate predictors of(More)
Certain obligate or facultative anaerobic bacteria, which exhibit an inherent ability to colonize solid tumors in vivo, may be used in tumor targeting. As genetically manipulated bacteria may actively and specifically penetrate into the tumor tissue, bacterial therapy is becoming a promising approach in the treatment of tumors. However, to the best of our(More)
BACKGROUND Despite the pervasiveness and negative physical and psychosocial implications of weight-based victimization (WBV) in youth, antibullying polices in schools rarely address this issue. Additionally, children's media perpetuates weight stigma, but regulation of stigmatizing media content is nonexistent. METHODS In 2011-2013, a diverse national(More)
BACKGROUND The past decade witnessed an increment in the incidence of hand foot mouth disease (HFMD) in the Pacific Asian region; specifically, in Guangzhou China. This emphasized the requirement of an early warning system designed to allow the medical community to better prepare for outbreaks and thus minimize the number of fatalities. METHODS Samples(More)
Foliage uptake and inner-leaf translocation of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) by Cinnamomum camphora from different urbanized areas were comparatively investigated in this study. Spatial and seasonal variations of ∑16PAHs in leaves were observed, likely due to the diversity of leaf wax contents sampled in different seasons and locations. A negative(More)
