Abstract: the north-american trend called "new journalism" born in the 60's, was a revolution for the usa traditional journalism, for its use of literary elements with other ones that belong to the journalistic research. hunter s. thompson, author of fear and loathing in las vegas (1971), with his gonzo style, was going to shed new light on the new journalism proposals, improving the immersión process using drugs until he gets implied personally in his reports and taking all his narrative influences from the 50's beat movement. almost 35 years later, in el dorado, juan-cantavella makes a paralellism between las vegas and the holiday city in the mediterranean coast, marina d'or and he develops in this space a novel, where his alter ego, the punk journalist escargot, plays the lead. novel, journalism, gonzo, fiction, story, punk, essay, report, "aportaje", discursive fragmentation, dialogs, internal monologues, descriptions, memorandums, telegrams, emails, press releases, radio news, songs, slogans, all fits to reenact genres, to re-read journalistic and literary traditions and to build something new. this work analyses this process, that goes from the gonzo journalism of fear and loathing in las vegas to the current spanish narrative of el dorado. it tries to distinguish the literary resources that the gonzo journalist uses to build his reports and the journalistic tools that nourish juan-cantavella's "punk narrative". a particular example of literary-journalistic symbiosis.

Abstract: The north-american trend called 'New Journalism' born in the 60's, was a revolution for the USA traditional Journalism, for its use of literary elements with other ones that belong to the journalistic research. Hunter S. Thompson, author of Fear and loathing in Las Vegas (1971), with his gonzo style, was going to shed new light on the New Journalism proposals, improving the immersión process using drugs until he gets implied personally in his reports and taking all his narrative influences from the 50's beat movement. Almost 35 years later, in El Dorado, Juan-Cantavella makes a paralellism between Las Vegas and the holiday city in the mediterranean coast, Marina D'Or and he develops in this space a novel, where his alter ego, the punk journalist Escargot, plays the lead. Novel, journalism, gonzo, fiction, story, punk, essay, report, 'aportaje', discursive fragmentation, dialogs, internal monologues, descriptions, memorandums, telegrams, emails, press releases, radio news, songs, slogans, all fits to reenact genres, to re-read journalistic and literary traditions and to build something new. This work analyses this process, that goes from the gonzo journalism of Fear and loathing in Las Vegas to the current Spanish narrative of El Dorado. It tries to distinguish the literary resources that the gonzo journalist uses to build his reports and the journalistic tools that nourish Juan-Cantavella's 'punk narrative'. A particular example of literary-journalistic symbiosis La corriente norteamericana llamada 'Nuevo periodismo', nacida en los a os sesenta, supuso para la Periodística tradicional de Estados Unidos toda una revolución por la combinación de elementos literarios con otros propios de la investigación periodística. Hunter S. Thompson, autor de Miedo y asco en las Vegas (1971), con su periodismo gonzo, le iba a dar una vuelta más a la propuesta del New Journalism, llevando al extremo el proceso de inmersión, hasta implicarse personalmente en sus reportajes y acogiendo sobre todo influencias narrativas del movimiento Beat de los cincuenta. Casi 35 a os después, en El Dorado, Juan-Cantavella hace un paralelismo entre Las Vegas y la ciudad de vacaciones en la costa mediterránea espa ola, Marina D'Or y desarrolla en este ámbito una novela, protagonizada por su alter ego el periodista punk, Escargot. Novela, periodismo, gonzo, ficción, cuento, punk, ensayo, reportaje, 'aportaje', fragmentación discursiva, diálogos, monólogos interiores, descripciones, comunicados, telegramas, emails, notas de prensa, noticias radiofónicas, canciones, eslóganes, todo cabe para
Love, Fear, and Loathing: A Qualitative Examination of Christian Perceptions of Muslims Liebe, Angst und Abneigung: Eine qualitative Studie zu christlicher Wahrnehmung des Islam Amor, miedo y odio: Un examen cualitativo de las percepciones cristianas sobre los musulmanes

Abstract: For centuries Christians and Muslims have sometimes shown extreme thoughts and feelings about each other, often based on very little factual information. While one large and well-respected survey study (PEW RESEARCH CENTER FOR THE PEOPLE AND THE PRESS, 2002), has researched attitudes in the United States toward Muslims, including a breakdown of attitudes by religion, race, sex and other demographic characteristics, that research may be limited by its quantitative approach to a question that is best answered using qualitative methodology. This study used an innovative qualitative method inspired by market research to investigate Christian feelings about Muslims. We note the undercurrents of fear and curiosity expressed by subjects and although the respondents in this study would have received high knowledge scores in the PEW survey, we found that they actually knew very little about Islam. We give rationale and detailed examples of our method of metaphor elicitation, suggest possible uses for it elsewhere, and close with suggestions for further research. URN: urn:nbn:de:0114-fqs090118 über Jahrhunderte fanden sich sowohl aufseiten der Angeh rigen christlicher als auch islamischer Religionen teilweise extreme und feindselige Konzepte und Emotionen, zumeist auf der Grundlage sehr geringer tats chlicher Informiertheit übereinander. In den USA hat sich eine gro e und breit akzeptierte Umfrage mit den Einstellungen gegenüber Muslim/innen befasst (PEW RESEARCH CENTER FOR THE PEOPLE AND THE PRESS 2002), differenziert u.a. nach Religionszugeh rigkeit, ethnischer Zugeh rigkeit, Geschlecht und anderen demografischen Merkmalen. Eine wesentliche Einschr nkung der Befunde ist allerdings, dass in dieser Studie ausschlie lich quantitative Verfahren zum Einsatz kamen, auch wenn qualitative mit Blick auf die interessierenden Fragen eher induziert gewesen w ren. Vor diesem Hintergrund haben wir in unserer eigenen Studie innovative qualitative Methoden genutzt, teilweise entlehnt aus der Marktforschung, um die Emotionen von Angeh rigen christlicher Religionen gegenüber Muslim/innen zu rekonstruieren. Wir fanden u.a. deutliche Hinweise auf Angst und Neugier aufseiten unserer Untersuchungsteilnehmer/innen, und obwohl viele von ihnen im Rahmen der PEW-Umfrage hohe Informiertheitswerte erhalten h tten, zeigten unsere Analysen, dass das tats chliche Wissen über den Islam ausgesprochen gering war. Wir geben in diesem Beitrag auch ausführliche Beispiele zum Verfahren der Metaphern-Elizitierung, das wir verwandt haben, machen Vorschl ge zu dessen Einsatz in anderen Zusammenh ngen u
Modular Las Vegas Algorithms for Polynomial Absolute Factorization  [PDF]

Mathematics , 2009,
Abstract: Let $f(X,Y) \in \ZZ[X,Y]$ be an irreducible polynomial over $\QQ$. We give a Las Vegas absolute irreducibility test based on a property of the Newton polytope of $f$, or more precisely, of $f$ modulo some prime integer $p$. The same idea of choosing a $p$ satisfying some prescribed properties together with $LLL$ is used to provide a new strategy for absolute factorization of $f(X,Y)$. We present our approach in the bivariate case but the techniques extend to the multivariate case. Maple computations show that it is efficient and promising as we are able to factorize some polynomials of degree up to 400.
Evaluating Las Vegas Algorithms - Pitfalls and Remedies  [PDF]

Computer Science , 2013,
Abstract: Stochastic search algorithms are among the most sucessful approaches for solving hard combinatorial problems. A large class of stochastic search approaches can be cast into the framework of Las Vegas Algorithms (LVAs). As the run-time behavior of LVAs is characterized by random variables, the detailed knowledge of run-time distributions provides important information for the analysis of these algorithms. In this paper we propose a novel methodology for evaluating the performance of LVAs, based on the identification of empirical run-time distributions. We exemplify our approach by applying it to Stochastic Local Search (SLS) algorithms for the satisfiability problem (SAT) in propositional logic. We point out pitfalls arising from the use of improper empirical methods and discuss the benefits of the proposed methodology for evaluating and comparing LVAs.
Space-Efficient Las Vegas Algorithms for K-SUM  [PDF]

Computer Science , 2013,
Abstract: Using hashing techniques, this paper develops a family of space-efficient Las Vegas randomized algorithms for $k$-SUM problems. This family includes an algorithm that can solve 3-SUM in $O(n^2)$ time and $O(\sqrt{n})$ space. It also establishes a new time-space upper bound for SUBSET-SUM, which can be solved by a Las Vegas algorithm in $O^*(2^{(1-\sqrt{\8/9\beta})n})$ time and $O^*(2^{\beta n})$ space, for any $\beta \in [0, \9/32]$.
Fear and loathing in Lithuania  [PDF]

Baltic Worlds , 2012,
Abstract: As an EU-member, Lithuania has to a large extent set up institutional mechanisms to combat homophobia. It has implemented anti-discrimination laws that are roughly in line with EU norms. At the same time, the country does not allow same-sex marriage, fails to recognize same-sex partnership (or indeed any form of civil partnership), and does not allow homosexual couples to adopt children. A still greater problem, note the authors, is that the political and cultural climate remains deeply hostile towards homosexuality and towards recognizing the rights of individuals of a minority sexual orientation.
Prediction of Parallel Speed-ups for Las Vegas Algorithms  [PDF]
Charlotte Truchet,Florian Richoux,Philippe Codognet
Computer Science , 2012,
Abstract: We propose a probabilistic model for the parallel execution of Las Vegas algorithms, i.e., randomized algorithms whose runtime might vary from one execution to another, even with the same input. This model aims at predicting the parallel performances (i.e., speedups) by analysis the runtime distribution of the sequential runs of the algorithm. Then, we study in practice the case of a particular Las Vegas algorithm for combinatorial optimization, on three classical problems, and compare with an actual parallel implementation up to 256 cores. We show that the prediction can be quite accurate, matching the actual speedups very well up to 100 parallel cores and then with a deviation of about 20% up to 256 cores.
A Las Vegas Rewriting Algorithm for the Symmetric Square Representation of Classical Groups  [PDF]
Brian Philip Corr
Mathematics , 2015,
Abstract: In constructive recognition of a representation of a Classical group $G$, much attention has been paid to the natural representation as well as to generic (Black Box) algorithms that treat all representations uniformly. There are theoretical and practical improvements to be made by giving special treatment to certain non-natural representations that arise frequently. In this paper we present and analyse a Las Vegas algorithm for rewriting the Symmetric Square representation.
Analysis of the real estate market in Las Vegas: Bubble, seasonal patterns, and prediction of the CSW indexes  [PDF]

Abstract: We analyze 27 house price indexes of Las Vegas from Jun. 1983 to Mar. 2005, corresponding to 27 different zip codes. These analyses confirm the existence of a real-estate bubble, defined as a price acceleration faster than exponential, which is found however to be confined to a rather limited time interval in the recent past from approximately 2003 to mid-2004 and has progressively transformed into a more normal growth rate comparable to pre-bubble levels in 2005. There has been no bubble till 2002 except for a medium-sized surge in 1990. In addition, we have identified a strong yearly periodicity which provides a good potential for fine-tuned prediction from month to month. A monthly monitoring using a model that we have developed could confirm, by testing the intra-year structure, if indeed the market has returned to ``normal'' or if more turbulence is expected ahead. We predict the evolution of the indexes one year ahead, which is validated with new data up to Sep. 2006. The present analysis demonstrates the existence of very significant variations at the local scale, in the sense that the bubble in Las Vegas seems to have preceded the more global USA bubble and has ended approximately two years earlier (mid 2004 for Las Vegas compared with mid-2006 for the whole of the USA).
