  • Regression and Threshold Hypotheses in English Language Attrition Through
           
    • Abstract: Regression and threshold hypotheses are widely-held theories in the field of language attrition despite the fact that few empirical studies have been carried out to validate them. This study, aiming to validate both hypotheses, examined the reaction time and error percentage of three groups of participants who were middle school students, workers and English teachers with the aid of computer via an empirical study. The results showed that the threshold hypothesis was nearly sound. In contrast, the regression hypothesis was hardly convincible. The possible reasons for the results were also explored and further suggestions regarding language attrition were put forward as well.

  • Lipase Production from Palm Oil Mill Effluent by Aspergillus terreus
           Immobilized on Luffa Sponge
    • Abstract: An integrated treatment and valorization of Palm Oil Mill Effluent (POME) by Aspergillus terreus IMI 282743 immobilized on Luffa sponge was investigated. Effects of POME concentrations and nitrogen supplementation on Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) reduction, microbial lipase and biomass production were evaluated in batch cultures. A 50% POME promoted the highest lipolytic activities in both immobilized and free cell cultures. In the former, the maximum lipase activity was 5.14 U mL-1 but in the non-immobilized batch, it was only 2.10 U mL-1. Lipase activities were low in the 25 and 100% POME due to overdilution and presence of inhibitory compounds, respectively. The pH was unchanged in the 100% POME but in other cultures, there were significant increase in the pH values. The pH of the 75% POME increased after a 48 h lag but in the 25 and 50% POME, the pH rose from 4-6.43 within a period of 96 h. COD did not change in the 100% POME but in the 75% POME, a 60.7% reduction was achieved. The COD of both the 50 and 25% POME decreased by 45% respectively. The immobilized biomass concentration was highest in the 75% POME (0.83 g L-1) but in the 25 and 100% POME, it was 0.27 and 0.63 g L-1, respectively. Supplementation of the 50% POME with a mixture of ammonium sulphate and yeast extract increased lipase production to10.6 U mL-1, biomass concentration to 3.7 g L-1 while the COD decreased by 80%. Lipase production from POME could be economically competitive to present industrial processes and provides additional incentive of treatment that is cheap and sustainable.

  • Modelling the Impact of Climate Change on Rice Production: An Overview
    • Abstract: In modern agricultural research, crop modelling has become a critical tool which incorporates scientists’ insights into the physiological and ecological processes by conducting crop growth into mathematical equations. The crop simulation models have been shown to be efficient in assessing the relationships between crop yield and environmental factors. They are able to determine the response of crop plants to change in weather. This study compares six different crop simulation models, namely RICEMOD, CERES-Rice, MACROS, RICESYS, SIMRIW and ORYZA series which can be used to evaluate the impacts of climate change on rice production. Comments are then made about the application and usefulness of these models.

  • Validation of the Threshold Hypothesis in Computer Aided English Language
           Forgetting
    • Abstract: The threshold hypothesis is well-known in the field of language forgetting. This study attempts to validate this hypothesis in computer aided English language forgetting among tertiary students in China. The data were collected from the test scores of 38 participants who had received computer aided English education and had not learned English for two years. The results indicated that participants who failed to pass CET 6 presented significant language forgetting regarding listening (t = 3.21, p = 0.02), reading (t = 5.14, p = 0.01), writing (t = 2.15, p = 0.03) and cloze (t = 7.25, p = 0.01). By contrast, participants who passed CET 6 showed no significant language forgetting as to listening (t = 2.14, p = 0.06) and cloze (t = 2.72, p = 0.42). Nevertheless, they showed significant language forgetting as to writing (t = 2.83, p = 0.01). In addition, it was somewhat surprising to find that they did not show significant language forgetting in reading comprehension. In contrast, their reading skills significantly gained after two years break (t = 2.82, p = 0.03).

  • Performance Analysis and Evaluation of UWB Wireless Computer Network for
           Multi-users and Dynamic Channel Environment
    • Abstract: Ultra wideband (UWB) technology has been widely used for wireless communication systems including long and short ranges. Wireless computer network is a short range communication system. The present study provides a detailed analysis and performance evaluation of an Ultra-Wideband wireless computer network in a dynamic environment. This includes multi-users state, various modulation schemes and different channel models. Time-Hopping multiple access technique (TH) has been selected to evaluate the network performance in multi-users environment. In addition, three modulation techniques including Pulse Position Modulation (TH-PPM), Binary Phase Shift Keying (TH-BPSK) and Quadrature Amplitude Modulation (QAM) have been used in this analysis. Two types of channel models for each modulation scheme have been used to simulate dynamic environment. The channel models are CM1 (line-of-sight) and/or CM3 (Non-line-of-sight) along with AWGN (IEEE 802.15.3a). Simulation results show that performance of the local area wireless computer network is highly dependent on the channel environment, the maximum allowable number of active users and the receiver structure. Therefore, prior information of the channel model as well as maximum number of active users is required to optimize the desired performance of the wireless computer network for a specific receiver model.

  • Study on the Law of Fault Open Affected by Water Pressure
    • Abstract: Fault water inrush is a geological disaster occurring in underground coal mines, which can bring serious threat to mining produce. High water pressure in aquifers is an important factor causing fault water inrush. According to the clamped beam theory of material mechanics, the open displacement formula of fault is deduced to study the fault opening law under water pressure and its criterion is proposed. Based on the deduced formula, the effect laws caused by the aquifer water pressure and the rock’s modulus are analyzed. The main results are as follows, the larger the water pressure is, the bigger the fault’s open displacement will be and the greater the probability of water inrush will also be. It is negative correlation between the fault’s open displacement and the rock’s elastic modulus, where the weaker the stiffness of the rock is, the fault will open easier. The example’s calculation shows that the faults will all open and it has been proven with the engineering practice.

  • Two Types of the MacWilliams Identities of the Fp+uFp+...+uk-1Fp-Linear
           Codes
    • Abstract: Error-correcting coding theory is an important theoretieal basis of information security. And the MacWilliams identity of the code is an important branch of error-correcting coding theory. In recent years, the research interest of many scholars engaged in coding theory have been transferred to the finite ring. Researches on MacWilliams identities over finite rings have not only important theory meanings but also important practical value. Many achievements about the weight distribution of the code over the ring have been made. Let R = Fp+uFp+...+uk-1Fp. In this study, the MacWilliams identities of the R-linear codes are discussed. Firstly, the complete weight enumerator and the symmetrized weight enumerator of R-linear codes are defined. Secondly, the complete weight MacWilliams identity and the symmetrized weight MacWilliams identity are given by using a special variable t. Finally, an example are given to show the use of two types of MacWilliams identities. This study improves the error-correcting coding theory of the ring R and promotes its actual application.
