A new coronavirus associated with human respiratory disease in China
Phylogenetic and metagenomic analyses of the complete viral genome of a new coronavirus from the family Coronaviridae reveal that the virus is closely related to a group of SARS-like coronaviruses found in bats in China.

The evaluation of correlations of several objective measures with these three subjective rating scales is reported on and several new composite objective measures are also proposed by combining the individual objective measures using nonparametric and parametric regression analysis techniques.

“Risk society” is a concept that was first framed by the German sociologist Ulrich Beck in Risk Society in 1986. In Beck’s view, the modern society had deviated from (Karl Marx’s) class society or
Mori dream spaces and GIT.
The main goal of this paper is to study varieties with the best possible Mori theoretic properties (measured by the existence of a certain decomposition of the cone of effective divisors). We call
Identification of a novel coronavirus causing severe pneumonia in human: a descriptive study
A novel bat-borne CoV was identified that is associated with severe and fatal respiratory disease in humans and the amino acid sequence of the tentative receptor-binding domain resembles that of SARS-CoV, indicating that these viruses might use the same receptor.
An algorithm that improves speech intelligibility in noise for normal-hearing listeners.
The findings from this study suggest that algorithms that can estimate reliably the SNR in each T-F unit can improve speech intelligibility.
Objective measures for predicting speech intelligibility in noisy conditions based on new band-importance functions.
The results from this study clearly suggest that the traditional AI and STI indices could benefit from the use of the proposed signal- and segment-dependent band-importance functions.
