The Risk of Information Technology on Employment
Xiaowei Huang
Asian Culture and History , 2009, DOI: 10.5539/ach.v1n2p108
Abstract: The investigation of whether or not the development of technology has become the enemy of employment is a boundless topic. There is no denying that technology plays an indispensable role in today’s society. However, the changing status of employment shows that with the development of technologies, the requirements of employees are not longer merely based on the basic skills and traditional knowledge, which was required before. In fact, under the development of information technology, employees seem have to undergone more negative effects than positive effects. This paper aims to analyse the relationship between technology and employment, and in particular, the development of information technology.
The Mobile Phone: It Has Nothing to do with Identity in the Process of Cultural Practice
HUANG Xiaowei
Cross-Cultural Communication , 2011, DOI: 10.3968/1605
Abstract: This paper aims to analyse the relationship between technology and self-identity. It focuses on the representation of the mobile phone in everyday life and identity. In this paper, a literature review on du Gay et al (1997a) Doing Cultural Studies: The Story of the Song Walkman will be introduced. This paper will be divided into four major sections. In the first section, it will be introducing the role of culture in everyday life. In addition to this, the relationship between commodities and popular culture will be analysed. Furthermore, there will be a discussion on the association between culture and technology. Secondly, there will be a focus on the investigation of identity, which includes the analysis of the body and the self. Thirdly, by emphasising the concept of consumption, on the one hand, the author will be interpreting the idea of whether identity is formed by what consumers consume. Lastly, the connection between technology and everyday life will be examined. In addition, three case studies based on the topics of ‘mobile phone and identity’ and ‘public and private’ will be provided throughout these four sections. A conclusion will be provided at the end of this paper. Key words: Mobile Phone; Identity; Cultural Practice Resumé: Ce document vise à analyser la relation entre la technologie et l'identité de soi.

‘Korean Wave’ — The Popular Culture, Comes as Both Cultural and Economic Imperialism in the East Asia
Xiaowei Huang
Asian Social Science , 2009, DOI: 10.5539/ass.v5n8p123
Abstract: Korean popular culture such as movies, TV dramas, and pop music is overwhelmingly powerful and TV dramas are one of the most remarkable popular cultures of these. They are not only popular in terms of the fanaticalness of audiences and fans, but also bring considerable profit to the national income. Cultural imperialism to be a new form of economic imperialism. The Korean wave brings a different level of Korean fever in certain East Asian countries, such as China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Japan, and the Philippines. This paper aims to analyse the changing position of audiences and consumers. It discusses the role of the media, especially, television, which is not only to provide entertainment to its audiences, but is also to change the audiences’ consumption.
Preparation mechanism and luminescence of Sr2SiO4: Eu phosphor from (Sr, Eu)CO3@SiO2 core-shell precursor  [PDF]
Yunsheng Hu, Weidong Zhuang, Jianhua Hao, Xiaowei Huang, Huaqiang He
Open Journal of Inorganic Chemistry (OJIC) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ojic.2012.21002
Abstract: Sr2SiO4: Eu phosphor for white light emitting diodes (LEDs) was synthesized by employing an as-prepared (Sr, Eu)CO3@SiO2 core-shell precursor as starting materials, and the effect of the core-shell precursor was also discussed on the crystal structure, particle morphology and luminescent properties of the resultant phosphor. The results showed that the hybrid β- and α′-Sr2SiO4: Eu phosphor with fine particle size and narrow distribution could be obtained at a lower firing temperature than that in conventional solidstate reaction method, and its formation mechanism was deduced to be (Sr, Eu)CO3 diffusion controlled reaction process. Responded to its hybrid crystal structure, this phosphor exhibited the combined luminescence of β- and α′-Sr2SiO4: Eu.

An Epistemic Strategy Logic
Xiaowei Huang,Ron van der Meyden
Computer Science , 2014,
Abstract: The paper presents an extension of temporal epistemic logic with operators that quantify over agent strategies. Unlike previous work on alternating temporal epistemic logic, the semantics works with systems whose states explicitly encode the strategy being used by each of the agents. This provides a natural way to express what agents would know were they to be aware of the strategies being used by other agents. A number of examples that rely upon the ability to express an agent's knowledge about the strategies being used by other agents are presented to motivate the framework, including reasoning about game theoretic equilibria, knowledge-based programs, and information theoretic computer security policies. Relationships to several variants of alternating temporal epistemic logic are discussed. The computational complexity of model checking the logic and several of its fragments are also characterized.

The Risk Premium of Treasury Bonds in China  [PDF]
Xiaowei Wu
Journal of Mathematical Finance (JMF) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/jmf.2016.61015

This paper studied the macroeconomic and the term structure of treasury bonds in the Shanghai Stock Exchange Market. Different from previous studies, we used a group of 122 observed macroeconomic data to construct our model’s macro factor. Therefore the macro factor contained more information than previous studies in predicting the excess return of Treasury bond. Based on the Kalman-Filter estimation, the results show that the macro factor’s risk was compensated through the level factor and slope factor, especially the level factor. Further, based on the decomposition of the yield curve into expected future short rate part and risk premium part, we find that there is some correlation between the variability of the risk premium and monetary policy to some extent.

Prediction of Bioluminescent Proteins Using Auto Covariance Transformation of Evolutional Profiles
Xiaowei Zhao,Jiakui Li,Yanxin Huang,Zhiqiang Ma,Minghao Yin
International Journal of Molecular Sciences , 2012, DOI: 10.3390/ijms13033650
Abstract: Bioluminescent proteins are important for various cellular processes, such as gene expression analysis, drug discovery, bioluminescent imaging, toxicity determination, and DNA sequencing studies. Hence, the correct identification of bioluminescent proteins is of great importance both for helping genome annotation and providing a supplementary role to experimental research to obtain insight into bioluminescent proteins’ functions. However, few computational methods are available for identifying bioluminescent proteins. Therefore, in this paper we develop a new method to predict bioluminescent proteins using a model based on position specific scoring matrix and auto covariance. Tested by 10-fold cross-validation and independent test, the accuracy of the proposed model reaches 85.17% for the training dataset and 90.71% for the testing dataset respectively. These results indicate that our predictor is a useful tool to predict bioluminescent proteins. This is the first study in which evolutionary information and local sequence environment information have been successfully integrated for predicting bioluminescent proteins. A web server (BLPre) that implements the proposed predictor is freely available.
Forms of nitrogen uptake, translocation, and transfer via arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi: A review
HaiRu Jin,Jie Liu,Jing Liu,XiaoWei Huang
Science China Life Sciences , 2012, DOI: 10.1007/s11427-012-4330-y
Abstract: Arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi are obligate symbionts that colonize the roots of more than 80% of land plants. Experiments on the relationship between the host plant and AM in soil or in sterile root-organ culture have provided clear evidence that the extraradical mycelia of AM fungi uptake various forms of nitrogen (N) and transport the assimilated N to the roots of the host plant. However, the uptake mechanisms of various forms of N and its translocation and transfer from the fungus to the host are virtually unknown. Therefore, there is a dearth of integrated models describing the movement of N through the AM fungal hyphae. Recent studies examined Ri T-DNA-transformed carrot roots colonized with AM fungi in 15N tracer experiments. In these experiments, the activities of key enzymes were determined, and expressions of genes related to N assimilation and translocation pathways were quantified. This review summarizes and discusses the results of recent research on the forms of N uptake, transport, degradation, and transfer to the roots of the host plant and the underlying mechanisms, as well as research on the forms of N and carbon used by germinating spores and their effects on amino acid metabolism. Finally, a pathway model summarizing the entire mechanism of N metabolism in AM fungi is outlined.
