In recent years, there have been extensive studies and rapid progresses in automatic text categorization, which is one of the hotspots and key techniques in the information retrieval and data mining field. Highlighting the state-of-art challenging issues and research trends for content information processing of Internet and other complex applications, this(More)
The poor quality of effluent discharged by municipal wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) is threatening the safety of water ecology. This study, which integrated a field survey, batch tests, and microbial community identification, was designed to improve the effectiveness of the enhanced biological phosphorus removal (EBPR) process for WWTPs. Over(More)
PURPOSE The present study evaluated the simultaneous correction of bilateral temporomandibular joint ankylosis with mandibular micrognathia using internal distraction osteogenesis (DO) with the help of a 3-dimensional craniomaxillofacial model technique. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 16 patients (age 18 to 43 years) with bilateral temporomandibular(More)
Carbonation technology with CO(2) absorption was used to enhance the stabilization of heavy metals in fresh fly ash from a municipal solid waste incinerator (MSWI). The influence of fundamental parameters affecting the stabilization of heavy metals, especially Pb and diffusivity and reactivity of CO(2), was evaluated. The results indicated that the addition(More)
We discuss the dynamic bandwidth allocation schemes in TDMA uplink channel of satellite networks. And a scheme based on max-min fairness is discussed and implemented in Tdma-bod simulator of ns-2. Simulation results show that this scheme can improve the throughput and delay performance and provide better QoS for satellite system. And in future network(More)
INTRODUCTION This is the first study to assess cerebral microinfarcts (CMIs) on 3 tesla (3T) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in a memory clinic population. METHODS We included 238 consecutive patients (aged 72.5 ± 9.1 years) from a memory clinic in Singapore. All patients underwent extensive neurological and neuropsychological testing and 3T MRI on the(More)
Heavy metal chemical stabilization with synthesized heavy metal chelating agent was assessed for flyash from municipal solid waste incinerator. Flyash can contain heavy metals (e.g. Pb, Cd) which can leach. A new kind of heavy metal chelating agent showed more attractive competition than inorganic chemicals in stabilizing flyash. The synthesizing method of(More)
Markers of cardiac dysfunction such as amino terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide (NTpro-BNP) and high sensitivity cardiac troponin T (hs-cTnT) may be associated with dementia. However, limited data exist on their association with either pre-dementia stages, that is, cognitive impairment no dementia (CIND), or the burden of cerebrovascular diseases(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the prevalence of cognitive impairment and dementia in communitydwelling Malays from Singapore; and to examine differences in prevalence among Chinese and Malays. METHODS Subjects (≥ 60 years) - drawn from the Malay component of the on-going multiethnic Epidemiology of Dementia in Singapore study - were screened using locally validated(More)
