Mansoureh Gholami, Maryam Shapoori
Open Journal of Marine Science (OJMS) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/ojms.2017.71015
Abstract: Zarivar Lake is a small, freshwater body in the far west of Iran, situated in the north Kurdistan Province close to the city of Marivan, with an area of about 750 ha and average water depth of 4 - 5 meters. During a survey of Zarivar Lake from 2010 to 2011, some specimens were obtained by seasonal sampling in 5 stations. They were used for gill net sampling in the lake. Due to the results, 6 species from 2 families in Zarivar Lake were identified. Most of the fish species belonged to Cyprinidae family. Totally, 6 species (Cyprinus carpio, Ctenopharyngodon idella, Capoeta damascina, Chalcalburnus sp., Hypophthalmichthys molitrix and Gambosia affinis) were identified from Cyprinidae and Poeciliidae families.

Peyman Hashemian, Mansoureh Mohammadi
Open Journal of Pediatrics (OJPed) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ojped.2015.54054
Abstract: Social skills include the ability to establish interpersonal relationships with others in a way that is acceptable in terms of norms of society and it should be beneficial to society and have mutual interest. Method: Sample was taken from especial elementary school for educable intellectual disability children in Mashhad, Iran. The sample was boys between 9 - 11 years. After the initial selection of students, they were randomly assigned to two groups of twenty (experimental and control groups). 7 sessions of music therapy were performed for each one in the experimental group whereas no sessions were applied for anyone in the control group. Winelend Social Growth Scale was used to measure their social skill before and after intervention. Result: The mean difference in social skill between the two groups were statistically less than the 0.01 which is highly significant (P-value = 0.0005). This shows that art and music therapy are effective on the growth of social skills in educable intellectual disability children. Conclusion: This research shows that music therapy is effective for improvement of social skills in educable intellectual disability children.
Simplifying Stochastic Mathematical Models of Biochemical Systems  [PDF]
Silvana Ilie, Samaneh Gholami
Applied Mathematics (AM) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/am.2013.41A038

Stochastic modeling of biochemical reactions taking place at the cellular level has become the subject of intense research in recent years. Molecular interactions in a single cell exhibit random fluctuations. These fluctuations may be significant when small populations of some reacting species are present and then a stochastic description of the cellular dynamics is required. Often, the biochemically reacting systems encountered in applications consist of many species interacting through many reaction channels. Also, the dynamics of such systems is typically non-linear and presents multiple time-scales. Consequently, the stochastic mathematical models of biochemical systems can be quite complex and their analysis challenging. In this paper, we present a method to reduce a stochastic continuous model of well-stirred biochemical systems, the Chemical Langevin Equation, while preserving the overall behavior of the system. Several tests of our method on models of practical interest gave excellent results.

Using AdaBoost Meta-Learning Algorithm for Medical News Multi-Document Summarization  [PDF]

Automatic text summarization involves reducing a text document or a larger corpus of multiple documents to a short set of sentences or paragraphs that convey the main meaning of the text. In this paper, we discuss about multi-document summarization that differs from the single one in which the issues of compression, speed, redundancy and passage selection are critical in the formation of useful summaries. Since the number and variety of online medical news make them difficult for experts in the medical field to read all of the medical news, an automatic multi-document summarization can be useful for easy study of information on the web. Hence we propose a new approach based on machine learning meta-learner algorithm called AdaBoost that is used for summarization. We treat a document as a set of sentences, and the learning algorithm must learn to classify as positive or negative examples of sentences based on the score of the sentences. For this learning task, we apply AdaBoost meta-learning algorithm where a C4.5 decision tree has been chosen as the base learner. In our experiment, we use

The Position of the Foreign Students’ Union in Iran

International Journal of Nations Research , 2018, DOI: -
Abstract: Student scientific unions are groups that volunteer to conduct academic activities; students come together for scientific and specialized purposes and through their activities in scientific unions, while promoting and deepening the field of science in universities, they pave the way for their progress. As per the Constitution of the Islamic Republic of Iran, known associations and unions can freely act, provided that they do not violate the principles of independence, liberty, national unity, Islamic norms and principles of the Islamic Republic of Iran. Therefore, no one is prevented from or forced to participate in one of them. By such an introduction, the activities of these associations in some cases are accompanied by the presence of some foreign students who have been able to study at universities of the country and the level of their activities depends on the university's status and policies. In some cases it has consequences for the politic, security, economic, culture and even geographic and morphologic aspects of the population. Particularly, the adverse effects of their presence on the vital factors of the country will be far greater in some cases. This makes the government and the higher legislator to apply restrictions on the rights of foreigners in order to prevent these negative consequences and preserve the political, economic, and social interests of the country as well as the citizens. This research, using a descriptive-analytical method, studies the position of the Foreign Students’ Union in Iran. Based on the results at the Foreign Students' Union is not usually supervised by a particular institution or organization, whereas, acts like an independent organization that as an example we can only refer to the Islamic Association of Students of Afghanistan in Iran, founded in 1992.
An Expert System for Advising to Buy a FootballPlayer Using Visual Prolog  [PDF]

Intelligent Information Management (IIM) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/iim.2012.44020
Abstract: This work presents the design of an Expert System that aims to advice the club teams to buy a football player in the post that they needed. Suggesting different player in many posts by an expert person is based on football experience, knowledge about the player and the club that he works. For mechanization the ability of this person, we use Expert System because it can model the ability of a person in solving a problem. Visual Prolog language is used as a tool for designing our Expert System.
Resistance to the Discourse of Death in Nothing to Be Frightened of by Julian Barnes in the Light of Michel Foucault
Soudabe Gholami
Studies in Literature and Language , 2011, DOI: 10.3968/j.sll.1923156320110302.473
Abstract: This research traces the Foucauldian notion of resistance in Julian Barnes’ Nothing to Be Frightened of. The paper is an in-depth analysis of resistance to the discourses of death and nothingness and this resistance is shown through three different levels; These levels are the discourse of literature, the title and the narrative. The narrative also shows resistance in three different forms as dismissing a God-ruled universe, bodily experiences and memories. Considering the book as either a fiction or a semi-autobiography, the analysis can manifest some interesting notions concerning the discourse of literature including the narrative and the title as a form of resistance to the discourse of death. Key words: Discourse of death; Nothing and discourse of nothingness; Discourse of literature; Power/knowledge; Resistance; Docile bodies

Abstract: The purpose of qualitative in this study is determining the critical risk factors in the IT projects outsourcing as well as determine which element of risk factors has more strength and direction with the information technology outsourcing. This study is operating within the constructivism philosophical posture, utilizing interpretive epistemology and induction theory as the approach of research, applying qualitative research methods as well the case study is the relevant research strategy. This study focuses on semi structured interview for suitable data collection to finding financial risks, technical risks, managerial risks, behavioural risks, and Legal and political risks are five categories of critical risk factors in ITO. The research has addressed low awareness of Risk Management activities within public and private sector organizations, and using from the simple method for risk assessment in outsourced of IT. Hence, this study pointed up common language in the area of Risk Management to facilitate communication among vendors and client as two main sources of ITO agreement.
A decision between Bayesian and Frequentist upper limit in analyzing continuous Gravitational Waves
Iraj Gholami
Physics , 2011,
Abstract: Given the sensitivity of current ground-based Gravitational Wave (GW) detectors, any continuous-wave signal we can realistically expect will be at a level or below the background noise. Hence, any data analysis of detector data will need to rely on statistical techniques to separate the signal from the noise. While with the current sensitivity of our detectors we do not expect to detect any true GW signals in our data, we can still set upper limits (UL) on their amplitude. These upper limits, in fact, tell us how weak a signal strength we would detect. In setting upper limit using two popular method, Bayesian and Frequentist, there is always the question of a realistic results. In this paper, we try to give an estimate of how realistically we can set the upper limit using the above mentioned methods. And if any, which one is preferred for our future data analysis work.
