Psychology (PSYCH) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/psych.2015.616208
Abstract: The goal of the study was to examine levels of psychological adjustment among college students in China; 650 college students took part in Adolescents’ Adaptability Scale (AAS). The results indicated that: 1) there was no significant gender difference in levels of psychological adjustment among college students in China; 2) there were apparent differences in majors. Students who specialized in physical art have the strongest levels of adjustment, while students who majored in arts have the weakest levels of adjustment; 3) significant differences were also existed in Grades, sophomores got the highest levels of adjustment, whereas seniors got the weakest levels of adjustment.
A Low-Cost Measurement Framework in Software Defined Networks  [PDF]
Qiang He, Shengbao Wang
Int'l J. of Communications, Network and System Sciences (IJCNS) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/ijcns.2017.105B006
Software Defined Network (SDN) makes network management more flexible by separating control plane and data plane, centralized control and being programmable. Although, network measurement still remains in primary stage in SDN, it has become an essential research field in SDN management. In this context, this paper presents a low-cost high-accuracy measurement framework to support various network measurement tasks, such as throughput, delay and packet loss rate. In this framework, we only measure per-flow edge switches (the first and the last switches). In addition, a new adaptive sampling algorithm is proposed to significantly improve measurement accuracy and decrease network overhead. Meanwhile, we consider a low-cost topology discovery approach into our framework instead of topology discovery currently implemented by SDN controller frameworks. In order to improve the accuracy of delay, we also join a time threshold value to adjust the time delay. Furthermore, we consider and analyze the balance between measurement overhead and accuracy in several aspects. Last, we utilize POX controller to implement the proposed measurement framework. The effectiveness of our solution is demonstrated through simulations in Mininet and Matlab.
Template-Monomer Interaction in Molecular Imprinting: Is the Strongest the Best?  [PDF]

Open Journal of Organic Polymer Materials (OJOPM) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ojopm.2015.52007
Abstract: Molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) represent a new class of materials possessing high selectivity and affinity for the target molecule. They have been utilized as sensors, catalysts, sorbents for solid-phase extraction, stationary phase for liquid chromatography, mimics of enzymes, receptors, and antibodies. In this research, molecular imprinted polymers (MIPs) for luteolin were prepared using acrylamide, 4-vinylpyridine and 1-allyl-piperazine as functional monomers and ethylene glycol dimethacrylate as cross-linker by non-covalent imprinting method. UV-visible spectra were used to evaluate the interaction strength between the template and the monomers. The composites of the polymers were calculated from elementary analysis. The porous properties of the imprinted polymers have been determined from nitrogen adsorption-desorption isotherms. The imprinting efficiency of the prepared MIPs was evaluated by selective adsorption for luteolin and its structural analogues. Although the interaction strength of monomers to the template was in the order 1-ALPP > 4-VP > AA, the binding affinity of the imprinted polymers towards luteolin was in the order MIP 2 > MIP 3 > MIP 1. Our results demonstrated that the imprinting efficiency was depending not only on the interaction strength between the template and the monomer, but also on the fidelity in transferring the complex into the polymer.

Qiang Wang
Theory and Practice in Language Studies , 2012, DOI: 10.4304/tpls.2.3.510-515
Abstract: Based on the possibility and necessity of integrating phased-based approach and TAG-based approach, the article attempts to realize the derivation-by-phase causatives in the framework of TAG and, in light of comparison and contrast of four subprograms according to conditions, constraints and hypotheses of the two approaches, finally chooses a subprogram with vPBE as the foot node, which is well in line with the Double-Phase Hypothesis proposed in the framework of minimalist syntax, as the one and only acceptable TAG derivation model of causatives.

Abstract: Objective: To investigate the effects of soybean isoflavones (SI) on expression levels of osteoprotegerin (OPG) and osteoprotegerin ligand (OPGL) mRNAs in bone tissues of ovariectomized rats, and to discuss the mechanism of soybean isoflavaones in preventing and treating postmenopausal osteoporosis (PMO). Methods: Thirty adult SD rats were randomly divided into 3 groups: sham-operation group, untreated group and SI-treated group. The rats in the last two groups were bilaterally ovariectomized. The bone density of L3 to L6 vertebrae was detected after 12-week intervention. Total RNA was extracted from femur head and the expression levels of OPG and OPGL mRNAs were examined by real-time quantitative polymerase chain reaction. Results: SI could increase the bone density of lumbar vertebrae in ovariectomized rats, up-regulate the expression level of OPG mRNA and down-regulate the ratio of OPGL mRNA/OPG mRNA, but exert no significant effect on the expression of OPGL mRNA.Conclusion: The therapeutic effects of SI on PMO may be related to regulating the expression levels of OPG and OPGL mRNAs, and the ratio of OPGL mRNA/OPG mRNA.

Polyelectrolyte Layer-by-Layer Assembly from Self-Consistent Field Calculations
Qiang Wang
Physics , 2005, DOI: 10.1021/jp0604387
Abstract: We have modeled the layer-by-layer assembly process of flexible polyelectrolytes on flat surfaces. The multilayer has a three-zone structure. An exponential growth is found for the first several layers, followed by a linear growth for subsequent layers evolving towards a steady state. While adjacent layers are highly interpenetrating, stratification can be seen for every four or more layers. The effects of surface charge density, bulk salt concentration, and solvent quality on the thickness and internal structure of the multilayer are also studied. Our results agree with experimental findings.
Studying Soft Matter with "Soft" Potentials: Fast Lattice Monte Carlo Simulations and Corresponding Lattice Self-Consistent Field Calculations
Qiang Wang
Physics , 2009,
Abstract: The basic idea of fast Monte Carlo (MC) simulations is to perform particle-based MC simulations with the excluded-volume interactions modeled by "soft" repulsive potentials that allow particle overlapping. This gives much faster system relaxation and better sampling of the configurational space than conventional molecular simulations with "hard" repulsions that prevent particle overlapping. Here we present fast lattice MC (FLMC) simulations for confined homopolymers, where multiple occupancy of lattice sites is allowed with a proper Boltzmann weight and thus the evaluation of nearest-neighbor interactions can also be avoided. When compared with the corresponding lattice field theories based on the \emph{same} Hamiltonian, FLMC simulations further provide a powerful means for unambiguously and quantitatively revealing the correlation/fluctuation effects.
