An Analysis of Intertextuality in Tripmaster Monkey:His Fake Book

- , 2015,
Abstract: 通过对美国华裔女作家汤亭亭的小说《孙行者》的解读,认为文本弥漫着强烈的互文意识,以中国古典小说《西游记》为基础,通过互文性意义上的拼接,揉合了大量中西文本,从而揭示了华裔美国人的归属困惑;《孙行者》一书如实地表现了华裔美国人面临的身份转换和困惑,倡导美籍华人不应一味试图摆脱中华文化根深蒂固的影响,迎合所谓美国主流文化未博取身份认同感,而是应该建立两种文化的对话,由对立走向融合。
Maxine Hong Kinston′s master piece Tripmaster Monkey:His Fake Book has a strong sense of intertextuality. Based on Chinese ancient classic novel Journey to the West, Kingston′s novel mixes a great amount of Chinese and Western words so that the deep-rooted Chinese-Americans′bewilderment of identity can be revealed through the intertextual splicing of English and Chinese. By analyzing its intertextuality, this paper tries to study how Kinston faces the identity issue of the Chinese-Americans, and how she seeked the application of intertextuality as an effective tool in Chinese-American literature

Optimization in Computer Engineering—Theory and Applications: Book Review of Chapter 8—Applying Graph Coloring to Frequency Assignment  [PDF]
Ridha Khedri
Journal of Software Engineering and Applications (JSEA) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/jsea.2012.53017
Abstract: The chapter gives a concise and clear presentation of the basic concepts and the variants of the graph coloring problem. It discusses the link between these variants. It uses a very simple and clear language that is at the grasp of an average engineering or science undergraduate student. It then focuses on discussing the applicability of the graph coloring problem to Frequency Assignment Problem (FAP). It precisely selects a special case of this problem: the Fixed Channel Assignment (FCA). The chapter gives a clear explanation of the common application domains of the Frequency Assignment problem such as radio and television transmission, military applications needs, satellite communication, and frequency planning of WLANs. The transition from FAP to graph coloring problem is well explained by using simple examples and graphical illustrations. The empirical assessment of the efficiency of the applied algorithm on FAP instance and random graphs is presented by giving the process, and the results. The implementation is carried using the Budapest Complexity Analysis Toolkit (BCAT). The content of the chapter is expected to age gracefully. It tackles a problem that is relevant today and will remain pertinent for many years to come. The title of the chapter is accurate. It captures the method and the subject that is tackled in the chapter. The examples are simple and easy to follow and the illustrations are appropriate and well executed. The chapter is not only written is a clear natural language but also complying with technical accuracy, which makes its content accessible and suitable to a variety of readers. A reader with a basic background in optimization has access to the material presented in the chapter. At the same time, an expert can find very interesting the empirical assessment of the complexity of solving FAPs. The chapter would benefit from a better explanation for the rational of the empirical study. Explaining the reasons for focussing the study on increasing edge density, increasing the number of vertices, and on increasing the number of colors would help a non-expert reader understand its rational. In general the chapter is a wellarticulate piece of work and presents a lasting contribution to the field that is accessible to a wide audience.
Review of the Book “Optimization in Computer Engineering—Theory and Applications”: Chapter 8—Applying Graph Coloring to Frequency Assignment  [PDF]

Wireless Engineering and Technology (WET) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/wet.2012.32008
Abstract: This book focuses on the relationship between theory and applications of various optimization problems in computer engineering. In the first half of the book the theoretical foundations are presented, such as some selected graph algorithms, integer linear programming and complexity theory. The second half of the book brings the theory closer to the reader by applying them to real-world optimization problems. Its aim is to bridge the often significant gap between theory and applications bringing additional value to both: the theory becomes more interesting in light of a possible application and understanding the hardness and possible solutions of the real-world problem definitely benefits from a strong theoretical background. Chapter 8 is a good example of the above. Here the authors present several versions of the frequency assignment problem (FAP), which is an important practical optimization problem arising in wireless network design. It is shown how FAP can be reduced to the earlier presented graph coloring problem. It is interesting to note that often the practical problem needs significant simplification in order to fit into the model that the theory is able to handle, or the theoretical problem needs to be extended to be able to model the needs of the practical application. Various generalizations of the simple graph coloring problem such as list coloring and T-coloring are introduced to model the constraints of the FAP. With this reduction the specific engineering problem can be han-dled through well-understood mathematical models. Besides showing the reduction to the graph coloring problem, the authors apply a graph coloring solver on industry benchmark FAP instances to further understand the characteristics of the real-world FAP. They show that there are significant differences in the difficulty of the problem on random and real-world graphs and that the parameters of the particular instance play a crucial role in the hardness of the problem. They show that the FAPs show a phase transition property in every input parameter, ie. there is a critical parameter combination where the problem gets extremely hard, but otherwise the problem can be solved relatively easily even on large real-world networks. Readers will surely benefit from the unique nature of the book that brings theory and applications close together in a well-understandable yet theoretically solid way.

Picasso alquimista: Una lectura de "Las Meninas"
Aisthesis , 2010, DOI: 10.4067/S0718-71812010000100018
Abstract: the objective of this essay is to reflect on picasso's las meninas según velázquez, painted in 1957. we have chosen three moments to develop our thesis: in the first place, we will develop a critical revisión of the classical lectures on las meninas since foucault published his essay in les mots et les choses (1966); secondly, and taking as a starting point rosalind krauss' essay on picasso, the picasso papers, we will read the series as a dialectic of fake and falsification, and finally we will analyze the relationship between form and content through the problem-posing of musical variation. we would like to point out that what is revolutionary in picasso's series is indeed their fake power.
Politics as a Profession  [PDF]

Open Journal of Political Science (OJPS) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/ojps.2016.62018
Abstract: The proposed research is about the people’s perception about “Politics as profession”. This paper examines multiple case studies of people’s opinion about making career in politics and further explains why most of the people are not interested in politics. By and large, people in India consider Politics as “dirt”. The word “Uneducated” is directly linked with politicians in India. We have our own Indian Political history as background information for us to understand people’s mentality towards politics and why most of us never want to join it. The purpose of this paper is to study the mentality of Indian parents about letting their children pursue politics as their profession. The main objective of this research is to make people understand that we can never clean the dirt by just staying away from it. Results of various surveys have been included to support the fact that people are afraid to take politics as a career. Post-Independence Era has seen kith and kin of late famous political figures that have entered politics in spite of being uneducated. Education doesn’t just mean acquiring degrees from some university, but to have a sense of honor towards leading people. This paper also stresses on the fact that most people agree on having an educated politician but most of the educated people are not interested in joining politics. As we know, many Indian politicians shroud in fake degree scandal, which shows the education status of politicians in India. Our proposal signifies that people need to change their mentality about politics and join it in true professional spirit so that we can be a developed nation and present an example to the rest of the world.

Abstract: Counterfeit antimalarials (mainly artemisinin derivatives) is a crucial health problem in developing countries, particularly in Africa. The illegal production, sale and distribution of fake drugs is a huge market evaluated to several billion of dollars and represents more than 50% of the pharmaceutical market in several African countries. Fake drugs have led to a very great number of deaths from untreated malaria or fatality provoked by toxic ingredients. These fake medicines increase the risk of artemisinin resistance developed by the use of sub therapeutic dosages of antimalarials. Tackling this criminal traffic is the objective of an international programme created by WHO and involves the international police and custom organizations like INTERPOL. Several very important and encouraging results have been obtained, but the problem will be completely solved if genuine antimalarials, free-of-charge, are handed-over to populations in sub Sahara African countries.
