Semantic Markup for Web Applications

In this paper we would like to introduce some of the best practices of using semantic markup and its significance in the success of web applications. Search engines are one of the best ways to reach potential customers and are some of the main indicators of web sites' fruitfulness. We will introduce the most important semantic vocabularies which are used by Google and Yahoo. Afterwards, we will explain the process of semantic markup implementation and its significance for search engines and other semantic markup consumers. We will describe techniques for slow conceiving RDFa markup to our web application for collecting Call for papers (CFP) announcements.

Parametric Modeling Approach for Call Holding Times for IP based Public Safety Networks via EM Algorithm

This paper presents parametric probability density models for call holding times (CHTs) into emergency call center based on the actual data collected for over a week in the public Emergency Information Network (EIN) in Mongolia. When the set of chosen candidates of Gamma distribution family is fitted to the call holding time data, it is observed that the whole area in the CHT empirical histogram is underestimated due to spikes of higher probability and long tails of lower probability in the histogram. Therefore, we provide the Gaussian parametric model of a mixture of lognormal distributions with explicit analytical expressions for the modeling of CHTs of PSNs. Finally, we show that the CHTs for PSNs are fitted reasonably by a mixture of lognormal distributions via the simulation of expectation maximization algorithm. This result is significant as it expresses a useful mathematical tool in an explicit manner of a mixture of lognormal distributions.

Suitability of Newsprint and Kraft Papers as Materials for Cement Bonded Ceiling Board

The suitability of Newsprint and Kraft papers for the production of cement bonded ceiling board was investigated. Sample boards were produced from newsprint paper (100%), mixture of newsprint and Kraft paper (50:50) and Kraft paper (100%) at 1:1, 2:1 and 3:1 cement/paper mixing ratio respectively with 3% additive concentration of calcium chloride (CaCl2). Density, flexural and thickness swelling properties of the boards were investigated. The effects of paper type and mixing ratio on the physical and mechanical properties were also examined. The bending properties of the board which include Modulus of Elasticity (MOE) and Modulus of Rupture (MOR) increased linearly with increase in density. Modulus of rupture of boards increased as the density and mixing ratio increased. The thickness swelling property for the two paper types decreased as the board density and mixing ratio increased. Boards made from Kraft paper recorded higher strength values than the ones made from recycled newsprint paper while the mixture of kraft and newsprint papers had the best surface finish. The result of the study will help in managing the large quality of waste from paper converting/carton industry and that the ceiling boards produced could be installed with clout nails or used with suspended ceiling fittings.

Web Solutions Implemented by the Romanian Companies in Customer Relationship Management

In recent years, the concept of customer relationship management (CRM) is the focus of worldwide business. If not long ago, customer relationship management was not considered a priority within companies, organizations today's performance puts in the center of all the customers and rethinks their marketing and sales strategies, depending on their needs and desires. Customer Relationship Management (CRM) has grown into a major element of business strategy of many companies and is based on the creation and development of personalized relationships with customers to increase their market share. A CRM strategy allows a company to adapt quickly to changes in organizational behavior emerged on the market. Customer relationship management means establishing, maintaining, developing and improving relations between an organization and its customers and focus on understanding and meeting the wishes and requirements of customers, items that are placed in the center of any business strategy firm performance.

Cell Phone: A Vital Clue

Increasing use of cell phone as a medium of human
interaction is playing a vital role in solving riddles of crime as well.
A young girl went missing from her home late in the evening in the
month of August, 2008 when her enraged relatives and villagers
physically assaulted and chased her fiancée who often frequented her
home. Two years later, her mother lodged a complaint against the
relatives and the villagers alleging that after abduction her daughter
was either sold or killed as she had failed to trace her. On
investigation, a rusted cell phone with partial visible IMEI number,
clothes, bangles, human skeleton etc. recovered from abandoned well
in the month of May, 2011 were examined in the lab. All hopes
pinned on identity of cell phone, for only linking evidence to fix the
scene of occurrence supported by call detail record (CDR) and to
dispel doubts about mode of sudden disappearance or death as DNA
technology did not help in establishing identity of the deceased. The
conventional scientific methods were used without success and
international mobile equipment identification number of the cell
phone could be generated by using statistical analysis followed by
online verification.

Mobile Velocity Based Bidirectional Call Overflow Scheme in Hierarchical Cellular System

In the age of global communications, heterogeneous networks are seen to be the best choice of strategy to ensure continuous and uninterruptible services. This will allow mobile terminal to stay in connection even they are migrating into different segment coverage through the handoff process. With the increase of teletraffic demands in mobile cellular system, hierarchical cellular systems have been adopted extensively for more efficient channel utilization and better QoS (Quality of Service). This paper presents a bidirectional call overflow scheme between two layers of microcells and macrocells, where handoffs are decided by the velocity of mobile making the call. To ensure that handoff calls are given higher priorities, it is assumed that guard channels are assigned in both macrocells and microcells. A hysteresis value introduced in mobile velocity is used to allow mobile roam in the same cell if its velocity changes back within the set threshold values. By doing this the number of handoffs is reduced thereby reducing the processing overhead and enhancing the quality of service to the end user.

“A Call for School Diversity“: A Practical Response to the Supreme Court Decision on Race and American Schools

American public schools should be the place that reflects America-s diverse society. The recent Supreme Court decision to discontinue the use of race as a factor in school admission policies has caused major setbacks in America-s effort to repair its racial divide, to improve public schools, and to provide opportunities for all people, regardless of race or creed. However, educators should not allow such legal decision to hinder their ability to teach children tolerance of others in schools and classrooms in America.

A Goal Programming Modeling for Telecommunication Routing Management

Automatic and effective routing management is a troublesome, longstanding problem for all telecommunication service providers. Current operational fact reveals that no single telecommunication operator can own the whole network, especially for those second-tier operators. A complete call service usually involves multiple tiers of operators to participate in, and it is flowing through many of them. In this sense, we observed that from the standpoint of one single operator, each service can be conceptualized as a 1-N call distribution relationship. The models that we have proposed are to the call distribution problem of one single operator. The proposed initial and final models suitably apply the goal programming (GP) approach to solve the target decision making problem. Since the objectives during decision making usually conflict, we have not only concluded the major relevant criteria and attributes of call distribution problem, but have also inspected and discovered some interesting findings about the managerial concerns of related decision making processes. Also, we found out and proved the equivalence under GP between the two usual metrics that a decision maker of an operator would often set up in mind, the per-time-unit concern versus the total traffic volume concern. The solution could advise operators in making proper decisions about how to distribute traffic to available routes, and it can thus be a clear guide for the engineering staff on route deploying for the next period (or billing cycle) to come, while achieving multiple pre-defined goals automatically.

Vocal Communication in Sooty-headed Bulbul; Pycnonotus aurigaster

Studies of vocal communication in Sooty-headed Bulbul were carried out from January to December 2011. Vocal recordings and behavioral observations were made in their natural habitats at some localities of Lampang, Thailand. After editing, cuts of high quality recordings were analyzed with the help of Avisoft- SASLab Pro (version 4.40) software. More than one thousand element repertoires in five groups were found within two vocal structures. The two structures were short sounds with single element and phrases composed of elements, the frequency ranged from 1-10 kHz. Most phrases were composed of 2 to 5 elements that were often dissimilar in structure, however, these phrases were not as complex as song phrases. The elements and phrases were combined to form many patterns. The species used ten types of calls; i.e. alert, alarm, aggressive, begging, contact, courtship, distress, exciting, flying and invitation. Alert and contact calls were used more frequently than other calls. Aggressive, alarm and distress calls could be used for interspecific communication among some other bird species in the same habitats.
