Designing new models and algorithms to improve order picking operations
A picker routing strategy that incorporates the precedence constraint by picking heavy items before light items is proposed, and an exact solution method is developed to evaluate the strategy and demonstrate the ability of the heuristic in finding high-quality solutions within a negligible computation time.
Efficacy and Safety of Ticagrelor vs. Clopidogrel in East Asian Patients with Acute Myocardial Infarction: A Nationwide Cohort Study
- Medicine, BiologyClinical pharmacology and therapeutics
In the present study, ticagrelor was comparable to clopidogrel in the composite of death, MI, and stroke, but had an increased risk of BARC type 2 bleeding.
Enrichment of pasta with different plant proteins
- Chemistry, MedicineJournal of Food Science and Technology
On the basis of cooking and sensory quality, pasta in combination with 8% mushroom powder, 15% Bengal gram flour and 9% defatted soy flour resulted in a better quality and nutritious pasta.
Hormesis: A Conversation with a Critic
- MedicineEnvironmental health perspectives
This commentary responds to points raised in the commentary by Mushak and demonstrates that Mushak’s analysis contains critical statistical errors and misunderstandings of statistical concepts that invalidate its conclusions concerning the frequency of hormesis in the toxicologic literature.
Higher gametocyte production and mosquito infectivity in chronic compared to incident Plasmodium falciparum infections
- Medicine, BiologyNature communications
These observations support the notion that malaria transmission reduction may be expedited by enhanced case management, involving both symptom-screening and infection detection, and observe that most incident infections require treatment before the density of mature gametocytes is sufficient to infect mosquitoes.
Impact of pneumococcal conjugate vaccination on hospitalized childhood pneumonia in Taiwan
- Medicine, BiologyPediatric Research
The intensive/invasive medical needs and the fatality of all-cause pneumonia decreased significantly in children of all ages and the disease burden of lobar/pneumococcal pneumonia and lower respiratory tract infections declined after the national PCV13 vaccination program in Taiwan.

Twentieth century global glacier mass change: an ensemble-based model reconstruction
- Environmental ScienceThe Cryosphere
Abstract. Negative glacier mass balances in most of Earth's glacierized regions contribute roughly one-quarter to currently observed rates of sea-level rise and have likely contributed an even larger…
ASSESSING THE RESISTANCE TO ROOT-LESION NEMATODE (PRATYLENCHUS THORNEI) IN A NEW COLLECTION OF WILD CHICKPEA (CICER RETICULATUM AND C. ECHINOSPERMUM) FROM TURKEY
This thesis aims to demonstrate the efforts towards in-situ applicability of EMMARM, as to provide real-time information about the emplacing and removal of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere through a variety of mechanisms.
