A Hub Matrix Theory and Applications to Wireless Communications
Kung HT,Suter BW
EURASIP Journal on Advances in Signal Processing , 2007,
Abstract: This paper considers communications and network systems whose properties are characterized by the gaps of the leading eigenvalues of for a matrix . It is shown that a sufficient and necessary condition for a large eigen-gap is that is a "hub" matrix in the sense that it has dominant columns. Some applications of this hub theory in multiple-input and multiple-output (MIMO) wireless systems are presented.
Determinants of Condom use in Botswana: An empirical Investigation of the Role of Gender
BW Malema
Botswana Journal of Economics , 2012,
Abstract: This article is largely motivated by the observation that gender imbalance have tended to aggravate females susceptibility to HIV infection as men used their dominance to dictate on issues of sexual activity with their female counterparts. The paper analyses factors influencing the use of condoms by both sexes and discovers that both males and females respond in similar fashion albeit at differing intensities to determinants of condom use. Using logistic regression analysis we note that education, the never married, those living together, the perception that the partner could be unfaithful and age at first sex are positively correlated to condom use for both males and females. In cases where the faithfulness of the partner was unknown, females were more likely to use condoms whereas there was no observable relationship for males in such cases. There was a negative relationship between condom use and age differences with partner for females whereas the relationship was positive for males. Females who were Professionals, legislators, associate professionals and technicians were less likely to use condoms than the unemployed females. In the case of males it was the associate professionals and technicians who were less likely to use condoms than the unemployed whereas the other professions were not statistically different to the unemployed males in terms of condom use. In conclusion we note that there is no conclusive evidence that gender imbalance impedes the propensity of women to use condoms.
Impact of Culture on Financial Management in Africa
BW Mwangi
Journal of Language, Technology & Entrepreneurship in Africa , 2007,
Abstract: One of the major challenges of the accounting profession in Africa is the impact of culture on accounting systems. People from different societies view accounting as an imposed idea from another continent. They also find it culturally imposing and punitive and in most cases the demands of accounting go contrary to the cultural norms in a given society. Perhaps it is the way people perceive and react to the word accounting or the ‘idea of accounting'. It is important to note that every society has its norms and standards of language use in communication. These norms and standards play a significant role in the way messages are coded (worded) by the sender, the way they are transmitted (relaying of the message) and the way the receiver of the message decodes (understands and reacts to the message).

To Depreciate or not to Depreciate Non-governmental Fixed Assets
BW Mwangi
Journal of Language, Technology & Entrepreneurship in Africa , 2009,
Abstract: In the last two decades Africa and particularly Kenya has experienced an exponential growth of Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs). This is attributed to the fact that they are established to solve immediate humanitarian problems that result from war, famine, poverty and bad governance in most countries in Africa. Given the magnitude of the resultant social challenges, NGOs have in time grown to control immense amounts of financial resources. It is therefore pertinent that they not only account for their social activities but also for these financial resources. The focus of this discussion is on the accounting of these funds and specifically in the area of depreciation. In an attempt to establish rules and regulations that ensure that NGOs account for their financial resources business accounting principles and standards have largely been prescribed for the accounting and auditing of NGOs. And this has been without due consideration of the significant differences between the nature of operation of NGOs and business enterprises. One of the major differences is that the core business of NGOs is to provide humanitarian services which are not measurable in monetary terms, while that of business enterprises is to carry out activities that will generate profit and subsequently increase the wealth of owners of the business.

Koinonia (Deelgenootskap) - 'n gemis in ons 21ste-eeuse kerkbegrip
BW de Wet
Acta Theologica , 2008,
Abstract: Koinonia (partnership ) — lacking in our church concept of the 21st century This article argues that in translating koinonia one should not use terms such as “fellowship”, as koinonia focuses on the idea of “sharing”, in particular within a dynamic relationship of active participation and shared interests. After showing how Paul succeeds in applying the koinonia dynamics when addressing some of the issues of the Corinthian church in, for instance, 1 Corinthians 8:1-11:1, it becomes clear that one should rather attempt to make koinonia part and parcel of our current church concept.
Long-term safety and efficacy of endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair
Propper BW,Abularrage CJ
Vascular Health and Risk Management , 2013,
Abstract: Brandon W Propper, Christopher J Abularrage Division of Vascular Surgery and Endovascular Therapy, John Hopkins Hospital, Baltimore, MD, USA Abstract: Endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR) is a safe and efficacious treatment for both unruptured and ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms. While perioperative mortality is lower with EVAR, long-term outcomes are similar between EVAR and open repair, including quality of life and cost-effectiveness. We review the long-term outcomes from the EUROSTAR registry, and DREAM, EVAR 1, and OVER trials. Keywords: EVAR, endovascular, aneurysm, aortic, outcome, long-term
Structural configuration of the Teras fault (southern Basin and Range Province) and its rupture in the 3 May 1887 Mw 7.5 Sonora, Mexico earthquake
Suter, Max;
Revista mexicana de ciencias geológicas , 2008,
Abstract: during the great 3 may 1887 sonoran earthquake (surface rupture end-to-end length: 101.8 km; mw = 7.5±0.3), an array of three north-south striking basin and range province faults (from north to south pitáycachi, teras, and otates) snapped along the -western margin of the sierra madre occidental plateau. my detailed field survey of the teras fault and the 1887 earthquake rupture zone along this fault included mapping the rupture scarp and measuring surface deformation at 27 sites. the teras fault is -20 km long, strikes n12°e, and has an average dip of62°w; its maximum throw is >1,640 m and its long-term slip rate >0.08 mm/yr. the fault is structurally simple; it is not internally segmented along strike and does not branch. striation measurements and the style of faulting indicate extensional dip-slip without significant lateral displacement. in the north, a 2.5-km wide, unbreached right step-over separates the pitáycachi and teras faults, whereas the southern limit of the teras fault is a partly breached relay ramp, where the fault trace shows a 60° bend and jogs to the west. here, the displacement of the teras fault is transferred onto the otates fault and the normal faults bounding the iglesitas horst. the 1887 surface rupture along the teras fault (end-to-end length 19.9 km) generally coincides with the mapped trace of the teras basin and range province fault. based on 27 measurements, the maximum surface offset is 184 cm and the mean offset 112 cm. the along-rupture surface offset distribution is asymmetric, with the maximum near the southern end of the segment. this suggests that the teras and otates segments could be part of a single continuous 1887 rupture that stepped across the structurally complex basement ridge between them. a rough estimate of the average recurrence interval of 1887-size earthquakes on the teras fault can be obtained from the average slip rate since 23 ma and the amount of slip on this segment during the 1887 earthquake; the resulting va

De la presse comme modèle de l’ uvre à la presse dans l’ uvre – et à l’ uvre comme modèle de la presse
Patrick Suter
COnTEXTES : Revue de Sociologie de la Littérature , 2012, DOI: 10.4000/contextes.5322
Abstract: De Mallarmé à la fin du xxe siècle, les uvres d’avant-garde se situent dans un rapport tensionnel et dialectique à la presse. Jusqu’au surréalisme, la littérature emprunte son modèle à la presse, mais en n’en sélectionnant que certaines caractéristiques, et sans oublier la logique du Livre mallarméen : est ainsi visée une synthèse du livre et du journal, dont Le surréalisme au service de la Révolution constitue l’exemple le plus achevé. Si les uvres d’assemblage de textes de la deuxième moitié du xxe siècle découlent plut t du collage, elles intègrent des coupures de presse et permettent non seulement de la critiquer, mais surtout de proposer une pluritextualité qui fonctionne autrement que les journaux, et qui pourrait être le modèle d’une presse utopique qui demanderait au lecteur non seulement de s’informer, mais surtout de mettre en relation et en perspective les différentes informations qui lui sont proposées.
