Well-organized big data get together in the densely distributed sensor networks is, therefore, a challenging research area. One of the most effective solutions to address this challenge is to utilize the sink node’s mobility to facilitate the data gathering. While this technique can reduce energy consumption of the sensor nodes, the use of mobile sink presents additional Challenges such as determining the sink node’s trajectory and cluster formation prior to data collection. In this paper, we propose a new mobile sink routing and data gathering method through network clustering based on modified ExpectationMaximization (EM) technique. In addition, we derive an optimal number of clusters to minimize the energy consumption. The effectiveness of our proposal is verified through numerical results.
With most perceptions of elite athletes as “living the dream”, getting to travel around the world, enjoying their sport for a living, living in 5 star hotels and getting incredibly lucrative sponsorship deals, it’s no wonder we assume everything is fine. Or rather should be fine, what are they complaining about? This blog post shares the facts around depression in sport and how you can overcome it.

Writing a Curriculum Vitae Curriculum Vitae vs. Resume A resume is a 1-2 page brief summary of education and experience used to demonstrate qualifications for a position or type of position. A curriculum vitae (CV) is a 3 or more page detailed biographical statement emphasizing qualifications and professional activities in detail. A CV is used for advanced positions in research and higher education and may be used for other positions when requested. For most job seekers, a resume is all that you will need. However, it may be useful to develop a CV as you further your education and achieve professional accomplishments. Why a Curriculum Vitae Besides using your CV to get a job upon graduation, it can also be used in other ways: 1.A supporting document to include when submitting a grant or funding proposal 2.A requirement for an annual review with your employer 3.A requirement for membership to a professional society 4.A requirement for applying to medical school 5.A background statement to be used to develop an introduction for a professional presentation at a conference or meeting

The role of the perceived gender of an infant and the gender of adolescents on ratings of the infant will be explored. Thirty-six junior high students (18 boys and 18 girls) will view a photo of a 3-month-old infant. Students will be told the infant’s name is either “Larry,” “Laurie,” or they will not be told the infant’s name. Each student will rate the infant on 6 bipolar adjective scales (firm/soft, big/little, strong/weak, hardy/delicate, well coordinated/awkward, and beautiful/plain). It is predicted that both the name assigned to the infant and the students’ gender will affect ratings. Implications of the results for parenting and for future research will be discussed.Effect of Infant’s Perceived Gender on Adolescents’ Ratings of the Infant Many researchers agree that gender role socialization begins at the time of an infant’s birth (Haugh, Hoffman, & Cowan, 1980; Honig, 1983). Most parents are extremely interested in learning whether their newborn infant is a boy or a girl, and intentionally or not, this knowledge elicits in them a set of expectations about sex role appropriate traits (Rubin, Provenzano, & Luria, 1974). Empirical research suggests that these initial expectations, which form the basis of gender schemas (Leone & Robertson, 1989), can have a powerful impact on parents’ perceptions of and behavior toward infants (Fagot, 1978; Lewis, 1972). Gender contributes to the initial context within which adults respond to an infant and may become an influential agent in the socializing process and the development of the child’s sense of self (Berndt & Heller, 1986). Stereotyped expectations may influence gender role socialization and the acquisition of sex-typed behavior through a self-fulfilling prophecy process (Darley & Fazio, 1980). Preconceived gender-based expectations may cause the parent to elicit expected behavior from the infant and to reinforce expected behavior when it occurs; this would confirm the parents’ initial expectations.

Pola penanggulangan bencana mendapatkan dimensi baru dengan dikeluarkannya UndangUndang No.24 Tahun 2007 tetang Penanggulangan Bencana, yang diikuti beberapa peraturan pelaksanaan terkait.Untuk mendukung pengembangan sistem penanggulangan bencana yang mencakup pemerintah pusat maupun daerah, maka dipandang perlu memulai dengan mengetahui sejauhmana penerapan peraturan yang terkait dengan penanggulangan bencana di daerah.Telaah ini bertujuan untuk melakukan review terhadap sistem penanggulangan bencana di Indonesia dengan menghasilkan rekomendasi kebijakan strategis dalam kegiatan penanggulangan bencana. Secara umum dapat disimpulkan bahwa sistem penanggulangan bencana yang saat ini dikembangkan baik ditingkat nasional maupun daerah adalah merupakan tahap transisi antara sistem yang selama ini berjalan dengan sistem baru seperti yang diamanatkan oleh UU No. 24 Tahun 2007. UU ini menjadi “milestone” dikarenakan adanya berbagai kewenangan yang terdapat di di dalam UU tersebut. Ada kewenangan di beberapa kementerian dan lembaga, secara langsung tidak berada dalam kewenangan/tugas pokok dan fungsi dari BNPB, dan apabila terjadi bencana alam, akan mengalamai kesulitan dalam melakukan koordinasi serta menimbulkan kelambatan dalam pelaksanaan, dan ketidak efektifan dalam penanggulangan bencana.
Thus, for the interim, the participants of the Fifth International Workshop-Conference on GDM endorsed a motion to continue use of the deﬁnition, classiﬁcation criteria, and strategies for detection and diagnosis of GDM that were recommended at the Fourth Workshop-Conference. Those guidelines are reproduced (with minor modiﬁcations) in this article in APPENDIX Tables 1 and 2. he Fifth International WorkshopConference on Gestational Diabetes Mellitus (GDM) was held in Chicago, IL, 11–13 November 2005 under the sponsorship of the American Diabetes Association. The meeting provided a forum for review of new information concerning GDM in the areas of pathophysiology, epidemiology, perinatal outcome, long-range implications for mother and her offspring, and management strategies. New information and recommendations related to each of these major topics are summarized in the report that follows. The issues regarding strategies and criteria for the detection and diagnosis of GDM were not reviewed or discussed in detail, since it is anticipated that the Hyperglycemia and Adverse Pregnancy Outcome (HAPO) study will provide data in mid-2007 that will foster the development of criteria for the diagnosis SUMMARY AND RECOMMENDATIONS — The invited lectures, topical discussions, and posters presented at the conference and the invited manuscripts that appear in this issue of Diabetes Care served as the basis for the following summary and recommendations.
