A Combination Approach to Community Detection in Social Networks by Utilizing Structural and Attribute Data  [PDF]
Nasif Muslim
Social Networking (SN) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/sn.2016.51002
Abstract: Community detection is one of the important tasks of social network analysis. It has significant practical importance for achieving cost-effective solutions for problems in the area of search engine optimization, spam detection, viral marketing, counter-terrorism, epidemic modeling, etc. In recent years, there has been an exponential growth of online social platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, Google+, Pinterest and Tumblr, as people can easily connect to each other in the Internet era overcoming geographical barriers. This has brought about new forms of social interaction, dialogue, exchange and collaboration across diverse social networks of unprecedented scales. At the same time, it presents new challenges and demands more effective, as well as scalable, graphmining techniques because the extraction of novel and useful knowledge from massive amount of graph data holds the key to the analysis of social networks in a much larger scale. In this research paper, the problem to find communities within social networks is considered. Existing community detection techniques utilize the topological structure of the social network, but a proper combination of the available attribute data, which represents the properties of the participants or actors, and the structure data of the social network graph is promising for the detection of more accurate and meaningful communities.

Journal of Coastal Development , 2009,
Abstract: During summer of August 2000, the behavior of 210Pb was studied in off coast Ulsan, Gampo and Pohangwaters, Korea as an area potentially upwelling occur. Water samples were collected vertically inshore andoffshore at each station. The highest of 210Pb activity occurred in the surface layer as derivate fromatmosphere and then decreased with increasing depth. The lower 210Pb activity in bottom layer was causedby scavenging of particulate matter and strong affinity of unsupported 210Pb to soil and sediment particles.In middle layer of the water column activity of 210Pb fluctuated due to water masses of North Korea ColdWater (NKCW) that flows in this layer. The water mass of NKCW also affect on increasing dissolved oxygen(DO), where the highest of DO concentration occurred in this middle layer. The vertical distribution of 210Pbin the study area was generally not different between inshore and offshore, and the activity of 210Pb thatdetermine also was not significant different with previous studies

Faris Nasif AL- Shubiri
International Journal of Business and Management , 2010, DOI: 10.5539/ijbm.v5n10p137
Abstract: Financial firms make up a substantial fraction of the domestic equity market. A number of studies subsequently used different conceptual and methodological approaches to model equity return of financial services firms. Movement of the stock price as the consequence of the movement of the micro and macroeconomic factors is strongly supported by the literature review. Amman Stock Exchange in Jordan is inefficient in weak form. The sample of study includes the 14 commercial banks of Amman Stock Exchange for the period 2005 -2008. Simple and multiple regression analysis is conducted to find out the relationship microeconomic factors with the stock price and found highly positive significant relationship between market price of stock and net asset value per share; market price of stock dividend percentage, gross domestic product, and negative significant relationship on inflation and lending interest rate but not always significant on some years of Amman Stock Exchange in Jordan.

Abstract: Emerging data now indicate and address the strong relationship between H. pylori infection and the incidence of Type 2 DM, a growing body of evidence suggests that the infection with H. pylori may be associated with insulin resistance, chronic inflammation, long-term diabetes complications, and cardiovascular risk factors. The present study was conducted to evaluate the relationship between the infection with Helicobacter pylori and disturbance in Lipid profile in Type 2 Diabetic patients. One hundred and five participants were enrolled, categorized into two groups of H. pylori positive cases and negative controls according to their results of H. pylori IgG antibodies. Subjects in both groups fill the structured questionnaire. Blood samples were drawn for measuring the FBS, 2hr-PP blood sugar, HbA1c, Lipid profile and oxidized LDL. The obtained results were statistically analyzed. The study methodology was approved by the Biomedical Ethics Committee in the Faculty of Medicine, Umm Al-Qura University, Makkah, KSA. 48 cases (45.7%) were diagnosed as H. pylori seropositive and 57 (54.3%) were negative. There is no significant difference in the mean age or mean BMI between the H. pylori negative and positive cases. Glycemic control was similar in the two groups. Total Cholesterol was higher in cases of positive H. pylori compared to negative controls (P < 0.001) and Triglycerides was significantly elevated too (P < 0.005). No significant difference in the levels of HDL-Cholesterol between the two groups, while the mean LDL-Cholesterol was found to be significantly increased in cases
Debt Ratio Analysis and Firm Investment: Evidence from Jordan
Faris Nasif Al-Shubiri
International Journal of Economics and Financial Issues , 2012,
Abstract: This paper examines whether the total debt ratio and bank ratio of listed companies have any impact on their fixed investment during the years in 2004-2009, and whether this impact, if it existed, differed among companies with differing investment opportunities. The study has reveals the total debt ratio did have a negative impact on fixed investment among Jordanian listed companies. It has also been found that the bank ratio had a stronger impact on fixed investment than the total debt ratio.
Capital structure and value firm: an empirical analysis of abnormal returns
Faris Nasif AL-SHUBIRI
Economia : Seria Management , 2010,
Abstract: This study investigates whether capital structure is value relevant for the equity investor. In this sense, the paper links empirical corporate finance issues with investment analysis. This study also integrates the Miller-Modigliani (MM) framework (1958) into an investment approach by estimating abnormal returns on leverage portfolios in the time-series for different risk classes. For most risk classes, abnormal returns decline in firm leverage. Descriptive statistics, simple and multiple regressions are used to test the hold indicator significance. The results reflect that the designed measures are the negative relationship between returns and leverage could also be due to the market’s pricing of the firm’s ability to raise funds if need be. Further avenues for research in this area include examining the stock return performance of companies based on the changes in leverage of the firms relative to their risk classes. It would be particularly noteworthy to examine the rate at which the information content of said changes is incorporated in the share prices of companies as well as in their long run returns This study encompasses all non-financial firms across the five sectors that cover all the various classes of risk. This study investigates neither the determinants of multiple capital structure choices nor changes in capital structures over time. Our main goal is to explore the effect of capital structure on cumulative abnormal returns. This study also examine a firm’s cumulative average abnormal returns by measuring leverage at the firm level and at the average level for the firm’s industry. And also examine other factors, such as size, price earnings, market-to-book and betas.
Capital Structure and Market Power: Evidence from Jordanian Banks

Managing Global Transitions , 2011,
Abstract: This paper provides new insights into the way in which the capitalstructure and market power and capital structure and profitability arerelated. We used sample data of fourteen banks listed on the AmmanStock Exchange for the period from 2005 to 2008.We examine the dependentvariable, which are expressed by total debt deflated by totalassets, while the independent variables are Tobin Q, Growth, Profitability,Size, Ownership, Risk and Tangibility ratio. The OLS estimation resultsindicate that, at lower and higher ranges of Tobin’s Q, banks employhigher debt, and reduce their debt at intermediate range. This isdue to the complex interaction of market conditions, agency costs, andbankruptcy costs. We also show the saucer-shaped relation betweencapital structure and profitability because of the interplay of agencycosts, costs of external financing and interest tax-shield. We find thatsize tangibility variables have a positive influence both on capital structureand on the other hand on growth, while risk and ownership variableshave a negative influence on capital structure.

Nazri Muslim,Rozita Ibrahim
The Social Sciences , 2013, DOI: 10.3923/sscience.2012.568.574
Abstract: Ethnicity refers essentially to the socio-cultural characteristics of a person. Ethnicity is characterized by one s culture, language, religion, national origin and others. Thus, an ethnic group comprises of members who have a set of socio-cultural characteristics of their own. They have the same cultural practices and share similar historical background, value systems, attitude and behaviour. In Malaysia, there are three major ethnic groups, namely the Malays, Chinese and Indians. In the Malaysian context, ethnicity is also an important aspect in the identification of one s religion as well as giving a clue of their affiliated political parties. The interplay between these various factors associated to ethnicity provides an interesting background to the study of Malaysian history and development. In this study, the researchers discuss the development of Malaysian higher education from an ethnic relations perspective. The study is based on the review of relevant literature and documents related to the history and development of higher education in Malaysia and its connections to ethnic integration towards nation building. This research discusses the various phases in the development of Malaysian higher education from the colonial times to the current globalisation era. The research highlights the efforts taken by the government in promoting and maintaining ethnic integration through education at the tertiary level.
