Coping style and mental health on high school students  [PDF]
Zhi Wang
Health (Health) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/health.2013.52023

Objective: To explore the coping style of high school students and its relationship to mental health. Methods: Make a survey upon 320 students through coping style questionnaire and MSMH. Results: High school students often resort to problem solving and appeal to coping factors. No distinct gender difference is found in coping style. There are different degrees of correlation between coping style and mental health. Remarkable grade difference is shown in the factor of appealing in coping style and the three factors of compulsion, anxiety and mental imbalance in mental health. Conclusion: Relatively mature coping style has come into existence among high school students, but more guidance and assistance are in need in cultivating the coping style and improving the mental health.

Psychology (PSYCH) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/psych.2015.64048
Abstract: To explore the relationship between self-concept and parenting style, and to provide bases for improving self-concept on teenager, a total of 1000 teenager were tested with self-concept scale and parenting style scale. Total self-concept, self-concept of social orientation and self-concept of personal orientation were associated with factors of parenting style, which could predict total self-concept, self-concept of social orientation and self-concept of personal orientation. Factors of parenting style had the effects on the extents of total self-concept, self-concept of social orientation and self-concept of personal orientation of teenager.
Data-driven Approaches for Social Video Distribution
Zhi Wang
Computer Science , 2015,
Abstract: The Internet has recently witnessed the convergence of online social network services and online video services: users import videos from content sharing sites, and propagate them along the social connections by re-sharing them. Such social behaviors have dramatically reshaped how videos are disseminated, and the users are now actively engaged to be part of the social ecosystem, rather than being passively consumers. Despite the increasingly abundant bandwidth and computation resources, the ever increasing data volume of user generated video content and the boundless coverage of socialized sharing have presented unprecedented challenges. In this paper, we first presents the challenges in social-aware video delivery. Then, we present a principal framework for data-driven social video delivery approaches. Moreover, we identify the unique characteristics of social-aware video access and the social content propagation, and closely reveal the design of individual modules and their integration towards enhancing users' experience in the social network context.
Influencing Factors of the Power Fluctuation on the Ultra High Voltage Transmission Line Caused by Faults at the Remote Ends of the Interconnected Grid  [PDF]
Zhi An, Ansi Wang, Huadong Sun, Yong Tang
Journal of Power and Energy Engineering (JPEE) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/jpee.2014.24084
Abstract: After the North China grid and the Central China grid get into connection with the UHVAC demonstration, a new phenomenon is discovered according to some simulations. That is, the faults at the remote end of the UHV interconnected grid will result in significant power fluctuation and voltage drop on the UHV transmission line and even system splitting. But the faults near the UHV line only have marginal effects. Further, the simulation results also indicate that the short-circuit current of the buses near the UHV line is larger than that of the buses far away from the UHV line. This phenomenon is divergent from the traditional view. In this paper, the detail will be introduced, and the factors influencing the system stability after faults are presented and analyzed. The results indicate that transmission power of the UHV line and of the lines between the remote end and the major grid influence the fluctuation on UHV line. The load model and the grid structure of the remote end also have effect on it. Finally, corresponding control scheme is presented to improve the operation conditions of the UHV interconnected grid and ensure its security and stability.
A Continuous Approach to Binary Quadratic Problems  [PDF]
Zhi Liu, Zhensheng Yu, Yunlong Wang
Journal of Applied Mathematics and Physics (JAMP) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/jamp.2018.68147
Abstract: This paper presents a continuous method for solving binary quadratic programming problems. First, the original problem is converted into an equivalent continuous optimization problem by using NCP (Nonlinear Complementarity Problem) function, which can be further carry on the smoothing processing by aggregate function. Therefore, the original combinatorial optimization problem could be transformed into a general differential nonlinear programming problem, which can be solved by mature optimization technique. Through some numerical experiments, the applicability, robustness, and solution quality of the approach are proved, which could be applied to large scale problems.
Signal averaging for noise reduction in anesthesia monitoring and control with communication channels  [PDF]
Zhi-Bin Tan, Le-Yi Wang, Hong Wang
Journal of Biomedical Science and Engineering (JBiSE) , 2009, DOI: 10.4236/jbise.2009.27082
Abstract: This paper investigates impact of noise and signal averaging on patient control in anesthesia applications, especially in networked control system settings such as wireless connected systems, sensor networks, local area networks, or tele-medicine over a wide area network. Such systems involve communication channels which introduce noises due to quantization, channel noises, and have limited communication bandwidth resources. Usually signal averaging can be used effectively in reducing noise effects when remote monitoring and diagnosis are involved. However, when feedback is intended, we show that signal averaging will lose its utility substantially. To explain this phenomenon, we analyze stability margins under signal averaging and derive some optimal strategies for selecting window sizes. A typical case of anesthe-sia depth control problems is used in this development.
Regional Flow in the Lower Crust and Upper Mantle under the Southeastern Tibetan Plateau  [PDF]
Zhi Wang, Runqiu Huang, Jian Wang, Shunping Pei, Wenli Huang
International Journal of Geosciences (IJG) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/ijg.2011.24064
Abstract: Seismic tomography reveals an “R-shape” regional flow constrained between the depths of 50 to 80 km in the Southeastern Tibetan Plateau (STP) which demonstrates some of the differences revealed by the magnetotelluric (MT) soundings in some areas. The “R-shape” flow could be present in both the lower crust and uppermost mantle, but not in the lower crust above the Moho discontinuity. Lateral flow has been imaged under the Qiangtang and Songpan-Ganzi blocks while two channel flows have been revealed beneath the south part of the STP with the eastward lateral flow from the Qiangtang block separating into two channel flows. One branch turns southwards at the south Qiangtang block, along the Bangong-Nujiang fault reaching to the Indochina block, and another is across the Songpan-Ganzi block (fold system) which then separates into northward and southward parts. The northward branch is along the edge of the north Sichuan basin reaching to the Qingling fault and the southward channel turns south along the Anninghe fault, then turns eastward along the margins of the south Sichuan basin. Our study suggests that the crustal deformation along the deep, large sutures (such as the Longmen Shan fault zone) is maintained by dynamic pressure from the regional flow intermingled with the hot upwelling asthenosphere. The material in the lower crust and uppermost mantle flowing outward from the center of the plateau is buttressed by the old, strong lithosphere that underlies the Sichuan basin, pushing up on the crust above and maintaining steep topography through dynamic pressure. We therefore consider that the “R-shape” regional flow played a key role in the crustal deformation along the deep suture zones of the Bangong-Nujiang, the Longmen-Shan faults, and other local heavily faulted zones.

In Search of the Biological Significance of Modular Structures in Protein Networks

Abstract: Many complex networks such as computer and social networks exhibit modular structures, where links between nodes are much denser within modules than between modules. It is widely believed that cellular networks are also modular, reflecting the relative independence and coherence of different functional units in a cell. While many authors have claimed that observations from the yeast protein–protein interaction (PPI) network support the above hypothesis, the observed structural modularity may be an artifact because the current PPI data include interactions inferred from protein complexes through approaches that create modules (e.g., assigning pairwise interactions among all proteins in a complex). Here we analyze the yeast PPI network including protein complexes (PIC network) and excluding complexes (PEC network). We find that both PIC and PEC networks show a significantly greater structural modularity than that of randomly rewired networks. Nonetheless, there is little evidence that the structural modules correspond to functional units, particularly in the PEC network. More disturbingly, there is no evolutionary conservation among yeast, fly, and nematode modules at either the whole-module or protein-pair level. Neither is there a correlation between the evolutionary or phylogenetic conservation of a protein and the extent of its participation in various modules. Using computer simulation, we demonstrate that a higher-than-expected modularity can arise during network growth through a simple model of gene duplication, without natural selection for modularity. Taken together, our results suggest the intriguing possibility that the structural modules in the PPI network originated as an evolutionary byproduct without biological significance.
Why Is the Correlation between Gene Importance and Gene Evolutionary Rate So Weak?
Zhi Wang,Jianzhi Zhang
PLOS Genetics , 2009, DOI: 10.1371/journal.pgen.1000329
Abstract: One of the few commonly believed principles of molecular evolution is that functionally more important genes (or DNA sequences) evolve more slowly than less important ones. This principle is widely used by molecular biologists in daily practice. However, recent genomic analysis of a diverse array of organisms found only weak, negative correlations between the evolutionary rate of a gene and its functional importance, typically measured under a single benign lab condition. A frequently suggested cause of the above finding is that gene importance determined in the lab differs from that in an organism's natural environment. Here, we test this hypothesis in yeast using gene importance values experimentally determined in 418 lab conditions or computationally predicted for 10,000 nutritional conditions. In no single condition or combination of conditions did we find a much stronger negative correlation, which is explainable by our subsequent finding that always-essential (enzyme) genes do not evolve significantly more slowly than sometimes-essential or always-nonessential ones. Furthermore, we verified that functional density, approximated by the fraction of amino acid sites within protein domains, is uncorrelated with gene importance. Thus, neither the lab-nature mismatch nor a potentially biased among-gene distribution of functional density explains the observed weakness of the correlation between gene importance and evolutionary rate. We conclude that the weakness is factual, rather than artifactual. In addition to being weakened by population genetic reasons, the correlation is likely to have been further weakened by the presence of multiple nontrivial rate determinants that are independent from gene importance. These findings notwithstanding, we show that the principle of slower evolution of more important genes does have some predictive power when genes with vastly different evolutionary rates are compared, explaining why the principle can be practically useful despite the weakness of the correlation.
