A Cultural Examination of Shapiro’s Translation of the Marsh Heroes’ Nicknames  [PDF]
Yanli Bai
Advances in Literary Study (ALS) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/als.2016.43006
Abstract: What roles the culture plays in translating has been a focus in the translating circle. The stratifica-tional relation of language to cultural context in Systemic Functional Linguistics (SFL) makes it necessary that the process of translation should take the cultural factors into consideration. The present paper aims to discuss the parts that culture plays in translating by analyzing some prob-lems in Shapiro’s translation of the nicknames in the Outlaws of the Marsh. The paper starts off from the relation of language to culture context in translation in an SFL angle, followed with a brief introduction to the connotation and the artistic magic of the Marsh Heroes’ Nicknames and some examples of Shapiro’s translations of the nicknames, in order to demonstrate the importance of culture factors in translating.

Physics , 2015, DOI: 10.1088/2041-8205/809/2/L28
Abstract: M82 X-1 is the brightest ultraluminous X-ray source in starburst galaxy M82 and is one of the best intermediate mass black hole candidates. Previous studies based on the Rossi X-ray Timing Explorer/Proportional Counter Array (RXTE/PCA) reported a regular X-ray flux modulation of M82 with a period of 62 days, and attributed this periodic modulation to M82 X-1. However, this modulation is not necessarily from M82 X-1 because RXTE/PCA has a very poor spatial resolution of ~1 degree. In this work, we analyzed 1000 days of monitoring data of M82 X-1 from the Swift/X-ray telescope (XRT), which has a much better spatial resolution than RXTE/PCA. The periodicity distribution map of M82 reveals that the 62-day periodicity is most likely not from M82 X-1, but from the summed contributions of several periodic X-ray sources 4 arcsec southeast of M82 X-1. However, Swift/XRT is not able to resolve those periodic sources and locate the precise origin of the periodicity of M82. Thus, more long-term observations with higher spatial resolution are required.
Environment Problems of City Development in China  [PDF]
Xin Li, Yanli Qiao
Journal of Geoscience and Environment Protection (GEP) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/gep.2015.35012
Abstract: Environmental issues in the process of rapid urbanization are critical to the sustainability of China. Compact cities, characterized by relative high density, mixed land-use and pedestrian-oriented habitation, have been proposed as one solution for sustainable urban planning. However, given the fact that Chinese cities are characterized by high population densities, the applicability of a more compact solution to expanding cities in China remains questionable. Essential to the decision-making is a deeper understanding about the relationship between urban compactness and the sustainable environment of the cities. This study is proposed for an evaluation about the urbanization and urban development in China’s context from environmental perspective, especially with respect to atmospheric environment, water resources, waste pollution, and noise problems.
The Effect of a Psycho-Educational Intervention on Quality of Life of Patients with Advanced Lung Cancer Undergoing Chemotherapy  [PDF]
Yanli Zhao, Ruifang Zhu
Open Journal of Nursing (OJN) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ojn.2015.510089
Abstract: Objective: Cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy commonly experience depression and anxiety, which, along with adverse effects of chemotherapy, inevitably compromise quality of life (QOL) of the patients. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of a psycho-educational intervention on the quality of life (QOL) of patients with advanced lung cancer undergoing chemotherapy. Methods: Two hundred in-patients with unresectable advanced lung cancer undergoing chemotherapy in Shanxi Cancer Hospital from January to October 2013 were randomized into the intervention group (n = 100) and the control group (n = 100). Patients in the intervention group received a purposely designed and nurse-delivered psycho-educational intervention in addition to routine caring and chemotherapy, whereas those in the control group underwent chemotherapy and routine caring only. QOL of patients was assessed according to QOL instrument for lung cancer (QLICP-LU). The impact of the psycho-educational intervention on QOL was analyzed using independent-sample t test and χ2 test. Results: The psychological, physical, and social function, and the overall QOL scores were significantly improved in patients who received the psycho-educational intervention compared with those in the control group. Conclusions: A nurse-delivered psycho-educational intervention is a useful strategy to improve QOL of patients with advanced lung cancer undergoing chemotherapy.
Age-related clinical features of autoimmune hepatitis

Journal of Clinical Hepatology , 2013,
Abstract: ObjectiveTo analyze and compare the clinical manifestations, biological and chemical indices, immunological indices, and liver biopsy histological features of autoimmune hepatitis (AIH) according to patient age. MethodsNinety-eight adult Chinese patients diagnosed with AIH were divided into three groups according to age: <45 years old (young), 45-60 years old (middle-aged), and >60 years old (elderly). Significance of inter-group differences in the clinical manifestations, biological and chemical indices, immunological indices, and liver biopsy histology was assessed by ANOVA (normally distributed data) or Wilcoxon rank test (non-normally distributed data). ResultsThe elderly patients had a significantly higher frequency of hepatopathy than the young patients (50% vs. 20%, P<005) and a higher frequency of cirrhosis than either the young patients (40.6% vs. 5.7%, P<0.05). The elderly patients also had higher levels of total bilirubin (TBil) than the young patients (P<0.05). The level of serum complement factor 4 (C4) was remarkably lower in the middle-aged patients and elderly patients than in the young patients (P<0.05). The elderly patients had a higher frequency of antinuclear autoantibodies (ANA) positivity but lower frequency of anti-smooth muscle autoantibodies (SMA) positivity than the young patients (ANA: 100% vs. 77.1%, P<0.05; SMA: 31.4% vs. 6.3%, P<0.05). The middle-aged and elderly patients had higher frequencies of interface hepatitis than the young patients (88.5% and 100% vs. 51.8%, P<0.05). The histology activity index (HAI) was also remarkably higher in the middle-aged and elderly patients than in the young patients (8.1±2.8 and 10.2±3.6 vs. 6.6±2.3, P<005). ConclusionElderly AIH patients have higher frequencies of cirrhosis and complications, as well as stronger inflammatory activities.
Formal Verlinde Module
Yanli Song
Mathematics , 2014,
Abstract: Let G be a compact, simple and simply connected Lie group and $\A$ be an equivariant Dixmier-Douady bundle over G. For any fixed level k, we can define a G-C*-algebra $C_{\A^{k+h}}(G)$ as all the continuous sections of the tensor power $\A^{k+h}$ vanishing at infinity. A deep theorem by Freed-Hopkins-Teleman showed that the twisted K-homology $KK^{G}(C_{\A^{k+h}}(G), \C)$ is isomorphic to the level k Verlinde ring R_{k}(G). By the construction of crossed product, we define a C*-algebra $C^{*}(G,C_{\A^{k+h}}(G))$. We show that the K-homology KK(C^{*}(G,C_{\A^{k+h}}(G)),\C) is isomorphic to the formal Verlinde module $R^{-\infty}(G) \otimes_{R(G)} R_{k}(G)$, where $R^{-\infty}(G) = Hom_{\Z}(R(G),\Z)$ is the completion of the representation ring.

Mathematics , 2014,
Abstract: Kasparov defined a distinguished K-homology fundamental class, so called the Dirac element. We prove a localization formula for the Dirac element in K-homology of crossed product of C^{*}-algebras. Then we define the quantization of Hamiltonian G-spaces as a push-forward of the Dirac element. With this, we develop a K-homological approach to the quantization commutes with reduction theorem.

Yanli Song
Mathematics , 2015,
Abstract: We develop notions of twisted spinor bundle and twisted pre-quantum bundle on quasi-Hamiltonian G-spaces. The main result of this paper is that we construct a Dirac operator with index given by positive energy representation of loop group. This generalizes the quantization of Hamiltonian $G$-spaces to quasi-Hamiltonian G-spaces.
Proper maps, bordism, and geometric quantization
Yanli Song
Mathematics , 2012,
Abstract: Let $G$ be a compact connected Lie group acting on a stable complex manifold $M$ with equivariant vector bundle $E$. Besides, suppose $\phi$ is an equivariant map from $M$ to the Lie algebra $\mathfrak{g}$. We can define some equivalence relation on the triples $(M, E, \phi)$ such that the set of equivalence classes form an abelian group. In this paper, we will show that this group is isomorphic to a completion of character ring $R(G)$. In this framework, we provide a geometric proof to the "Quantization Commutes with Reduction" conjecture in the non-compact setting.

Applied Mathematics (AM) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/am.2016.73020
Abstract: The reciprocal complementary Wiener number of a connected graph G is defined as\"\" where \"\" is the vertex set. \"\" is the distance between vertices u and v, and d is the diameter of G. A tree is known as a caterpillar if the removal of all pendant vertices makes it as a path. Otherwise, it is called a non-caterpillar. Among all n-vertex non-cater- pillars with given diameter d, we obtain the unique tree with minimum reciprocal complementary Wiener number, where \"\". We also determine the n-vertex non-caterpillars with the smallest, the second smallest and the third smallest reciprocal complementary Wiener numbers.
