Malware Images Classification Using Convolutional Neural Network  [PDF]
Espoir K. Kabanga, Chang Hoon Kim
Journal of Computer and Communications (JCC) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/jcc.2018.61016
Abstract:
Deep learning has been recently achieving a great performance for malware classification task. Several research studies such as that of converting malware into gray-scale images have helped to improve the task of classification in the sense that it is easier to use an image as input to a model that uses Deep Learning’s Convolutional Neural Network. In this paper, we propose a Con-volutional Neural Network model for malware image classification that is able to reach 98% accuracy.

Abstract:
Introduction: The postponement of the preventive activities of the Provincial Division of Health of East Kasai 2016 revealed que le level of attendance of the preschool consultation is decreasing less and less in the Health Area Tshitenge. Thus, this study set the goal of determining the knowledge and use of maternal pre-school counseling in the Health Area Tshitenge. Methods: The survey method was used by means of a questionnary administered to mothers in this region, but more specifically, we collected data from 422 mothers responsible for randomly selected children aged 0 to 5 in the four health. Results: After analysis and analysis of the data with the computer tool, we obtained the following results: the rate of use of the preschool consultation service is 60.7%; the level of education, occupation and the number of children under 5 years of age have a strong influence on the use of preschool counseling; lack of knowledge about the most important activity of preschool counseling has a negative influence on its use. There is a link between the use of the preschool consultation and the most important activity of the preschool consultation for the respondent; there is also a link between this and an appointment on the map; and finally, the cost judgment of SPC strongly influences its use. Conclusion: In order to raise this activity, the revitalization of preschool consultation activities in the Tshitenge health area, the reinforcement of the parents’ awareness on the use of preschool counseling from 0 to 59 months, and the revival of visits to homes for children whose mothers drop out of preschool counseling sufficient are a basis.
Contagion of Sovereign Debt in the Eurozone  [PDF]
Astrid Ayala, Szabolcs Blazsek
Theoretical Economics Letters (TEL) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/tel.2014.41016
Abstract:

This study reports contagion and interdependence of quarterly debt to gross domestic product (GDP) among the member states of the Eurozone over the period 2000 Q4 to 2012 Q1. We test for contagion and interdependence in two steps. First, we define an indicator variable of increasing debt to GDP for each country during the period following the United States financial crisis, by using unit root tests incorporating structural changes and breaking trend regressions. Second, the indicator variable is included in the latent-factor panel data model to separate contagion and interdependence of debt to GDP among Eurozone member states. Results show significant and country-dependent contagion and interdependence effects of debt to GDP in the Eurozone.

African Journal of Health Sciences , 2005,
Abstract: Upper gastrointestinal complaints are common in Kenya. Though these have remained unchanged over the last 20 years, the pattern of upper gastrointestinal disease on endoscopic examination seems to be changing. There appears to be progressive increase in oesophagitis and cancer of the stomach. Peptic ulcer disease has remained stable while Cancer of the oesophagus is still common. The paper intends to report on endoscopic findings at the Centre for Clinical Research, Kenya Medical Research Institute (KEMRI) over the period October 1998 and May 2001. The sources of information are records made at the time of endoscopy and histology reports on biopsies taken. Seven hundred and sixty eight patients were endoscoped. The male to female ratio was 1.7:1 with mean age ±SD of 40.8 ±20.1 years and age range was 3 to 96 years. Majority of the patients had abnormal findings with gastritis being the most common (25.8%). It is concluded that gastritis is an important cause of morbidity in Kenya. Oesophagitis, mainly due to gastroesopahageal reflux disease, seems to be on the increase. Gastric cancer is not as rare as previously thought and peptic ulcer disease is still common. African Journal of Health Sciences Vol. 12(1-2) 2005: 49-54
The Influence of Priming on Reference States
Astrid Matthey
Games , 2010, DOI: 10.3390/g1010034
Abstract: Experimental and empirical evidence shows that the utility an individual derives from a certain state depends on the reference state she compares it to. According to economic theory, the reference state is determined by past, present and future outcomes of either the individual herself or her reference group. The experiment described in this paper suggests that, in addition, reference states depend to a significant degree on environmental factors not relevant for outcomes. It indicates that reference states - and hence utility - can relatively easily be influenced without changing people’s outcomes, e.g., through priming.
A systematic review of PET and PET/CT in oncology: A way to personalize cancer treatment in a cost-effective manner?
Astrid Langer
BMC Health Services Research , 2010, DOI: 10.1186/1472-6963-10-283
Abstract: Eight electronic databases were searched from 2005 until February 2010 to identify economic evaluation studies not included in previous Health Technology Assessment (HTA) reports. Only full health economic evaluations in English, French, or German were considered for inclusion. Economic evaluations were appraised using published quality criteria for assessing the quality of decision-analytic models. Given the variety of methods used in the health economic evaluations, the economic evidence has been summarized in qualitative form.From this new search, 14 publications were identified that met the inclusion criteria. All publications were decision-analytic models and evaluated PET using Fluorodeoxyglucose F18 (FDG-PET). Eight publications were cost-effectiveness analyses; six were cost-utility analyses. The studies were from Australia, Belgium, Canada, France, Italy, Taiwan, Japan, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, and the United States. In the base case analyses of these studies, cost-effectiveness results ranged from dominated to dominant. The methodology of the economic evaluations was of varying quality. Cost-effectiveness was primarily influenced by the cost of PET, the specificity of PET, and the risk of malignancy.Owing to improved care and less exposure to ineffective treatments, personalized medicine using PET may be cost-effective. However, the strongest evidence for the cost-effectiveness of PET is still in the staging of non-small cell lung cancer. Management decisions relating to the assessment of treatment response or radiotherapy treatment planning require further research to show the impact of PET on patient management and its cost-effectiveness. Because of the potential for increased patient throughput and the possible greater accuracy, the cost-effectiveness of PET/CT may be superior to that of PET. Only four studies of the cost-effectiveness of PET/CT were found in this review, and this is clearly an area for future research.Positron emission tomo
Intraseasonal variation in a population of Fountainea ryphea (Cramer) (Lepidoptera, Nymphalidae)
Caldas, Astrid;
Revista Brasileira de Zoologia , 1996, DOI: 10.1590/S0101-81751996000200009
Abstract: a different approach was used for the key-factor method in a population study of the tropical butterfly fountainea ryphea (cramer, [1776]) (lepidoptera, nymphalidae), marking 20 artificial cohorts to identify the mortality levels and associated instars responsible for the variation in numbers within the season of occurrence, when generations overlap broadly. highest mortality was detected during first instar in 13 cohorts; during second instar in three cohorts; third and fourth instars suffered highest mortality twice. results showed that first instar mortality due to rainfall and predation, and parasitism on fourth instar could be the main factors promoting differences in number between cohorts throughout the season, although no density-dependent processes could be identified.
Reconfiguraciones conceptuales, políticas y territoriales en las demandas de autonomía de los pueblos indígenas en Colombia
Ulloa,Astrid;
Tabula Rasa , 2010,
Abstract: in colombia, indigenous people's basic demands include: autonomy and self-determination. however, autonomic dynamics led by various peoples on territorial control, their own jurisdical practices, plans of life, environmental management and food sovereignty consolidation pose challenges and issues. indigenous peoples' autonomy is influenced and related to local and transnational contexts, y to the current state changes (dynamics of economic development, armed conflic and processes of violence being fought at indigenous territories), which give rise to new reframings and conceptual, political and territorial boundaries. therefore, indigenous autonomy needs to be reconsidered as a complex process, and analyzed as a an indigenous relational autonomy, since it articulates with specific negotiations and particular circumstances with diverse actors, in local, national and global scopes, and with partial and located processes having particular political implications. this paper is focused in the claims for autonomy by peoples kogui, arhuaco, wiwa and kankuamo from santa marta snowy mountain range -snsm-.

Thrown Away Like Rubbish - Disposal of the Dead in Ancient Greece
Astrid Lindenlauf
Papers from the Institute of Archaeology , 2001, DOI: 10.5334/pia.161
Abstract: In this article, the literary and archaeological evidence for burial practices that can be associated with the English expression ‘to be disposed of like rubbish’ are discussed. These disposal methods (átaphon rhíptesthai) include the exposure of corpses to carrion animals, to the elements, as well as the disposal of corpses into the sea, pits or natural fissures without burial rites. They also include cases in which graves were dug up in order to throw their contents out. Here, the Greek expressions for the English phrase ‘to be thrown away like rubbish’ are explored, as well as its relation to Morris’ (1987) influential concept of the ‘non-formal burial’. The analysis of the symbolism of various disposal methods has been based on both literary and archaeological sources. Also addressed are issues such as the intersection of the exclusion from full and proper burial procedures with social status and social groups. Lastly, the dangers for the living and the dead associated with casually disposed of human remains are briefly tackled, including the transformation of the souls of the deceased into spirits and their loss of human-ness.
