Parameter study of sound energy distribution in cuboid extra-large spaces

The aim of this paper is to explore the sound energy distribution in cuboid extra-large spaces. The surface absorption and height are studied as the parameters using the image method. Air absorption is also discussed in this paper. The results show that the difficulty of reducing the noise increases with the increasing volume in extra-large spaces. Even if the ratio between the...

A novel and fully automated mammographic texture analysis for risk prediction: results from two case-control studies

The percentage of mammographic dense tissue (PD) is an important risk factor for breast cancer, and there is some evidence that texture features may further improve predictive ability. However, relatively little work has assessed or validated textural feature algorithms using raw full field digital mammograms (FFDM). A case-control study nested within a screening cohort (age 46...

Effects of a mutual recovery intervention on mental health in depressed elderly community-dwelling adults: a pilot study

Background The prevalence of depression in the elderly is growing worldwide, and the population aging in China makes depression a major health problem for the elderly adults and a tremendous burden to the society. Effective interventions should be determined to provide an approach solving the problem and improving the situation. This study examined the effectiveness of a mutual...

Quantifying the impacts of subsidy policies on home-to-school pupil travel by bus in England

In the current economic climate, the British Government is revising a whole range of policy sectors to highlight areas where savings and cuts can be made. The policy of subsidising home-to-school transport for pupils who live beyond a set distance from the school which they attend has been in place since 1944 and this policy costs local authorities in England over £1 billion a...

Complete mitochondrial genomes of Taenia multiceps, T. hydatigena and T. pisiformis: additional molecular markers for a tapeworm genus of human and animal health significance

Background Mitochondrial genomes provide a rich source of molecular variation of proven and widespread utility in molecular ecology, population genetics and evolutionary biology. The tapeworm genus Taenia includes a diversity of tapeworm parasites of significant human and veterinary importance. Here we add complete sequences of the mt genomes of T. multiceps, T. hydatigena and T...
