Using Triadic Semiotics in Storytelling  [PDF]
Chien-Wen Lin, Ta-Long Lin
Art and Design Review (ADR) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/adr.2014.24010
Abstract: Researchers of this study have been making animation-related production and teaching for more than twenty years. Telling Stories with Pictures is a very common method for language and design teaching. And “idea pitching” is just like Telling Stories with Pictures; it is a significant process in developing a story for professional animation companies. This study focused on using Peirce’s Triadic Semiotics (icon-index-symbol semiotic triangle) with Story Cubes (Story Dices) in storytel-ling. By laboratory observation method, a team of students carried out the experiment contrast. After the introduction of Triadic Semiotics, testees would make stories having some associations and implications; therefore, there would be more possibilities and more imaginations in the story arrangement and structure. It is expected that the study results may provide effective recommen-dations for the production education of animation. In other design fields or knowledge management, more dynamic thinking methodology may be figured out accordingly as well.

International Journal of Otolaryngology and Head & Neck Surgery (IJOHNS) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/ijohns.2018.74022
Abstract: Objective: To observe the changes on skin wheal and erythema of skin prick test for the patients with allergic rhinitis during SLIT. Methods: Since March 2010 the 103 cases of SLIT attacked by allergic rhinitis patients, divided into four age groups, respectively measured the diameter of skin wheal and erythema before treatment, six months, one year and 2 years after SLIT. The data were analyzed by analysis of variance method; P < 0.01 showed the difference was statistically significant. Results: The results showed that the most changes of skin erythema diameter were statistically significant in N1, N2, N3 age group during test observation compare with the data before SLIT (p < 0.01); and the most changes of allergen wheal diameter were not statistically significant, but the N4 group had no significant change of wheal and erythema diameter. Conclusion: Although most of the skin test wheal did not change significantly during the treatment of SLIT, the erythema reaction decreased to a certain extent, indicating that the intensity of histamine release may be reduced during the treatment.
Effects of isolation after sexual experience on anxiety-like, depressive-like behaviors and affective states in male rats
Fei Wen,Lin Xu
Chinese Science Bulletin , 2010, DOI: 10.1007/s11434-010-4223-z
Abstract: Studies on social isolation have provided evidence for an enhanced anxiety-like phenotype, depressive-like symptoms and higher levels of 22-kHz ultrasonic vocalizations (USVs); whereas sexual experience could induce significant changes in affective states, decrease anxiety- and depressive-like responses. However, the behavioral and emotional alterations in male rats exposed to isolation after sexual experience remain poorly understood. Therefore, the present study examined anxiety- and depressive-like parameters, as well as USV emissions in male rats isolated for 1, 2, or 7 d following 1-week sexual (male-female paired housing) or social (male-male paired housing) interaction. Isolation for 1 d resulted in increased depressive-like symptoms, and 2-d isolation induced elevated anxiety-like behavior in sexually inexperienced rats, while rats with sexual experience exhibited comparable levels of emotionality at each isolation time. Moreover, isolated rats without sexual experience emitted less 22- and 50-kHz USVs, but sexually experienced rats exhibited similar affective states compared with control ones. These results suggested that prior sexual experience could have a modulatory effect on experimental rat emotional responses to isolation.
On the multiplicity of the eigenvalues of the vectorial Sturm-Liouville equation
Chien-Wen Lin
Tamkang Journal of Mathematics , 2011, DOI: 10.5556/j.tkjm.42.2011.265-274
Abstract: Let $ Q(x) $ be a continuous $ m imes m $ real symmetric matrix-valued function defined on $ [0,1] $, and denote the Sturm-Liouville operator $ -frac{d^2}{dx^2}+Q(x) $ as $ L_Q $ with $ Q(x)$ as its potential function. In this paper we prove that for each Dirichlet eigenvalue $ lambda_* $ of $L_Q$, the geometric multiplicity of $ lambda_* $ is equal to its algebraic multiplicity. Applying this result, we get a necessary and sufficiently condition such that each Dirichlet eigenvalue of $ L_Q $ is of multiplicity $ m $.

Abstract: I review recent progress in calculating |V_{us}| from lattice QCD kaon and hyperon systems. A preliminary result from the first dynamical calculation in the hyperon channel is included.
L1 Educational Studies in Language and Literature , 2012,
Abstract: The Council of Europe and Taiwan are both promoting plurilingual and intercultural educations for all students, regardless of social group. This paper aims to challenge the assumption that language learning can be expected to benefit all students equally. A Taiwanese socio-cultural study of junior high school students’ (age 13) English language learning processes is used as an example for discussion. Findings from the Hakka School, which is the focus of this paper, revealed emerging inequality arising from the enforcement of a mother-tongue education policy in Taiwan. Language competition and identity clashes are creating a new and worrisome divide that threatens to widen existing gaps not only between urban and rural regions but also among other social groups within Taiwanese society. This study leads to sev-eral conclusions, highlighting implications for teachers of first and second languages, including English, other educators, and policy makers in areas like Europe and Taiwan.

Are Investors Reluctant to Realize Their Losses during Financial Crises? Evidence form Taiwanese and Chinese Stock Markets
Huei-Wen Lin
Advances in Management and Applied Economics , 2012,
Abstract: This paper utilizes the disposition coefficient to verify whether disposition effect exhibits in Taiwan and Chinese stock markets during the periods of financial crises, and to discuss the differences of the disposition effect between appreciation and depreciation periods. The empirical results show that during the 1997 Asian financial crisis, disposition effect significantly exhibits in the both markets, but during the 2008 global financial crisis, disposition effect only exhibits in Chinese stock market. Nevertheless, there are no significant differences of disposition effect between A-shares and B-shares in Chinese stock market. This paper further concludes that disposition effect would significantly exist in appreciation period, but not in depreciation period no matter when the financial crisis comes into being.
The causes, consequences, and mediating effects of job burnout among hospital employees in Taiwan
Yea-Wen Lin
Journal of Hospital Administration , 2012, DOI: 10.5430/jha.v2n1p15
Abstract: For the purpose of explaining the causes, consequences and mediating effects of burnout on relevant variables, the researcher conducted a cross-sectional survey of 371 hospital employees in Taiwan. Four principal findings are made. First, with respect to the three components of burnout experienced by hospital employees, the most frequently reported is emotional exhaustion, being also the most problematic among hospital employees compared with employees in other industries. Second, while increased workload coupled with role conflict increases the likelihood of burnout among hospital employees, improved work autonomy and social support reduce its likelihood. Next, the study finds a direct correlation between employees’ perceptions of low levels of emotional exhaustion and depersonalization and high levels of organizational commitment. In contrast, employees’ perceptions of high levels of emotional exhaustion and depersonalization lead to high turnover intention. Finally, the result of the hierarchical regression analysis demonstrates a partial mediating effect of burnout in the current study. These findings suggest the need for hospital management to improve their wellbeing and incentive strategies, to embark upon regular investigations into job burnout and to adopt appropriate measures to meet the professional development needs of hospital employees.
