Airborne particles and asthma: a biophysical model  [PDF]
Ming Yang, Yixing Wang
Health (Health) , 2009, DOI: 10.4236/health.2009.14054
Abstract: Airborne particles can trigger asthma when reaching certain threshold concentrations that vary by a few to several thousand times among different particles. The underlying mechanism for the variation is unknown. Here, based on common knowledge and observations, we pro-pose that the potency of an airborne particle in causing asthma correlates positively with the weight of the particle and inversely with the friction coefficient between the particle and the airway epithelium. This model may lead to new approaches for investigating the asthma phe-nomenon, and to practical applications for re-ducing the prevalence of asthma.
Business Model for Local Distribution Companies to Promote Renewable Energy  [PDF]
Bjoern Buesing, Ming Yang
Low Carbon Economy (LCE) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/lce.2013.44A005

Decentralized or distributed small renewable power facilities are usually installed in local communities for households and small business companies. These facilities include solar PV, concentrated solar power, and wind power, etc. In order to promote installations of such facilities, governments in many countries have developed a number of policies and business models. For example, in Germany and Canada, electricity feed-in tariff policy and business model were developed; in the USA, tax rebate policies and relevant business models were promoted. These policies and models have in some but not in large scale promoted decentralized small renewable power in local communities. The key issue is that these policies and business models do not provide sufficient incentives to local distribution companies (LDC), nor to renewable power installers and users. This paper’s research covers the creation of a business and communication model, named as LDC model, to incentivize both renewable power installers/users and LDCs. This LDC model can play a key role in promoting decentralized small-scale generation (DSG) with renewable energy in local communities. The core element of the LDC model is a revenue model which serves as an instrument to finance renewable installations for households and small commercial businesses. A case study is undertaken with real data of a power distribution company in Toronto, Canada. This paper concludes that with appropriate government policy and with the development of customized information systems for accessing households and small business via internet, an LDC will be able to take leadership in investing and installing small renewable power, and consequently enlarge the share of renewable energy supply in its local power distribution network.

Sound Card Based ASK Communication System for Teaching Communication Principle Course  [PDF]
Ming Jin, Yang Pu
Communications and Network (CN) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/cn.2013.51B018
Abstract: This paper deals with the issue of using the MATLAB tool in teaching the course of communication principles via constructing an Amplitude Shift Keying (ASK) communication system. Different from conventional MATLAB based simulations, the constructed system transmits modulated signals through a wire audio channel by exploiting sound card. Synchronization is required before the received signal being demodulated. Many practical problems should be considered as in real system. The designed system can be extended easily, and not only stimulates students’ interest in communication course, but also helps them understanding the principles from system viewpoints.
Effects of Message Strategy and Need for Cognition (NFC) on Consumer Attitudes: A Case of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Advertising  [PDF]
Chao-Ming Yang
Open Journal of Business and Management (OJBM) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/ojbm.2018.63055
Corporate social responsibility (CSR) advertising can differentiate brands and create product value, and an appropriate messaging strategy can help corporations launch persuasive CSR advertisements. This study employed a 2 × 2 mixed experimental design to operate two independent variables—message strategy of CSR advertising (CSR-informational advertising vs. CSR-transformational advertising) and the level of need for cognition (high-NFC vs. low-NFC)—in order to examine the effect of these variables on consumers’ attitudes toward advertising and brands. Three primary conclusions were reached: 1) the message strategy of CSR advertising influenced consumers’ attitudes toward advertising and brands; 2) NFC levels influenced consumers’ attitudes toward advertising and brands; and 3) individuals with high NFC exhibited more positive attitudes toward advertisements and brands in the CSR-informational advertising compared with those in the CSR-transformational advertising. Overall, using advertising to promote CSR activities can strengthen corporate image, promote consumer behavior, and consolidate consumers’ brand loyalty; however, corporations must actively consider how to appropriately design CSR advertising content.
Study on Chongqing Sports Industrial Structure and Disposition of Human Capital  [PDF]
Ming Yang, Shunguang Yang, Jindong Chang
Open Journal of Social Sciences (JSS) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/jss.2014.27010
Abstract: There is a close relation between human capital and industrial structure. By discussing industrial structure and human capital of Chongqing sports, this paper attempts to explore the growth point for development of sports industry, the rational allocation between the industrial structure and human resources. The result shows that sports tourism industry, sports industry, sports lottery industry and leisure sports industry will become the optimal direction for the development of sports industry.

The growth of additive processes
Ming Yang
Mathematics , 2007, DOI: 10.1214/009117906000000593
Abstract: Let $X_t$ be any additive process in $\mathbb{R}^d.$ There are finite indices $\delta_i, \beta_i, i=1,2$ and a function $u$, all of which are defined in terms of the characteristics of $X_t$, such that \liminf_{t\to0}u(t)^{-1/\eta}X_t^*= \cases{0, \quad if $\eta>\delta_1$, \cr\infty, \quad if $\eta<\delta_2$,} \limsup_{t\to0}u(t)^{-1/\eta}X_t^*= \cases{0, \quad if $\eta>\beta_2$, \cr\infty, \quad if $\eta<\beta_1$,}\qquad {a.s.}, where $X_t^*=\sup_{0\le s\le t}|X_s|.$ When $X_t$ is a L\'{e}vy process with $X_0=0$, $\delta_1=\delta_2$, $\beta_1=\beta_2$ and $u(t)=t.$ This is a special case obtained by Pruitt. When $X_t$ is not a L\'{e}vy process, its characteristics are complicated functions of $t$. However, there are interesting conditions under which $u$ becomes sharp to achieve $\delta_1=\delta_2$, $\beta_1=\beta_2.$
