Performance testing is conducted before deploying system updates in order to ensure that the performance of large software systems did not degrade (i.e., no performance regressions). During such testing, thousands of performance counters are collected. However, comparing thousands of performance counters across versions of a software system is very time(More)
To further confirm at the molecular level that neuronal apoptosis occurs in mesial temporal sclerosis (MTS), the main substrate of mesial temporal lobe epilepsy (MTLE), 24 resected sclerotic hippocampi from 24 patients with drug-resistant MTLE associated with MTS were studied microscopically, electronmicroscopically and immunohistochemically, with detection(More)
The task of a playback attack detector (PAD) is to decide whether an incoming recording shares the same originating utterance as any of N stored recordings. All recordings are noisy channel-distorted versions of the same phrase uttered by the same person; the originating utterances of the N stored recordings are assumed to be distinct. The proposed approach(More)
OBJECTIVES Adverse drug reactions (ADRs) are believed to be a leading cause of death in the world. Pharmacovigilance systems are aimed at early detection of ADRs. With the popularity of social media, Web forums and discussion boards become important sources of data for consumers to share their drug use experience, as a result may provide useful information(More)
Diverse knowledge and techniques are required in retail store network planning (RSNP), which involves indispensable and interdependent strategic decision processes such as performance evaluation, trade area analysis, market potential forecasting and retail network optimization. On the one hand, these processes are often tightly related and need to be(More)
Public attention on natural gas price, which reflects the demand dynamics, is considered as a new factor to influence the movement of price. So investigate the impact of public attention on natural gas price is an innovative research issue in energy economics. This paper innovatively constructs a measure of public attention and examines its impact on(More)
Achieving the decoupling of electric CO 2 emissions from total electricity generation is important in ensuring the sustainable socioeconomic development of China. To realize this, China implemented market-oriented reforms to its electric power industry at the beginning of 2003. This study used the Tapio decoupling index, the Laspeyres decomposition(More)
The aim of the present study was to determine the effects of curcumin on the osteoclastogenic potential of peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) obtained from patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), and to investigate the underlying molecular mechanisms. PBMCs from patients with RA (n=12) and healthy controls (n=10) were cultured to assess(More)
