Standardization of motion representation is a key element for result comparison and data exchange during motion analysis studies. The discrepancies of the results currently found in the literature can be explained by a lack of standards related to at least 3 topics: 1- motion representation; 2- selection of anatomical landmarks
(ALs); 3- software resources. This literature discrepancy should be greatly reduced if a consensus on the three above points could be reached.
Topic 1 is tackled by the International Society of
Biomechanics (ISB) that published Standards to define body segment orientations and clinically meaningful motion representation (Wu, 1995; Wu, 2002; Wu, In
Press). Efforts related to Topic 2 are currently undergoing to allow strict AL selection necessary to build anatomical reference frames in a repeatable way
(Van Sint Jan, In Press).
Topic 3 is the goal of this paper. The presented research aimed to propose a software interface that would allow a user to: -interactively import motion data; -to register the motion to 3D bone models (if necessary); -to select
ALs; -and to create motion representation graphs according to standards. Similar commercial tools are available, but they are unfortunately often costly and limited to a few motion representations.
Materials and methods

...Reliance Commercial Corporation with a capital of Rs.15,000.00. The primary business of Reliance Commercial Corporation was to import polyester yarn and export spices. The business was setup in partnership with Champaklal Damani, his second cousin, who used to be with him in Aden, Yemen. The first office of the Reliance Commercial Corporation was set up at the Narsinatha Street in Masjid Bunder. It was 350 sq ft. room with a telephone, one table and three chairs. Initially, they had two assistants to help them with their business. In 1965, Champaklal Damani and Dhirubhai Ambani ended their partnership and Dhirubhai started on his own. It is believed that both had different temperaments and a different take on how to conduct business. While Mr. Damani was a cautious trader and did not believe in building yarn inventories, Dhirubhai was a known risk taker and he considered that building inventories, anticipating a price rise, and making profits. [3]. In 1968, he moved to an upmarket apartment at Altamount Road in South Mumbai. Ambani's net worth was estimated at about Rs.10 lakh by late 1970s. Asia Times quotes[4]: "His people skills were legendary. A former secretary reveals: "He was very helpful. He followed an 'open-door' policy. Employees could walk into his cabin and discuss their problems with him." The chairman had a special way of dealing with different groups of people, be they employees, shareholders, journalists or government officials. Ambani's competitors......

...continue to exist on high cognitive level tasks at the high school level, such differences appear to be declining. Young and Fisler examining SAT-M scores of high school seniors, find males to score better than females. In higher education women are often found to outperform men. Hyde and Kling state this to be the case irrespective of the measure of success used. Betts and Morell report that gender remains a significant predictor of CGPA after controlling for various individual attributes such as ethnic background, SAT scores and the high school attended. Many researchers claim that a large part of the under-prediction derives from the difference in course taking patterns of male and female college students. Ruling out differential course selection as an explanation for the under-prediction of female grades, Leonard and Jiang suggest that females have better study skills than the male students. “Other researchers have argued that women receive higher grades than men because they work harder and attend class more frequently” (Wainer and Steinberg). Academic Related Practices The following studies significantly support the results of the present study in relation to male and female academic performance. Chen et al. (1999) reported that contrary to all previous findings, the female students in their study performed much better than the males except in one class. This was despite the sexist attitudes and actions of faculty and fellow students. Snyder et al. (2008) found that...

...thinner than the other methods, and they have an irregular shape and intermediate quality (Anton, 2008; Serna-Saldivar et al., 1988). F. Barros et al. / Journal of Cereal Science 52 (2010) 288e294 289 Wheat breeders evaluate hundreds of experimental breeding lines for milling and predictive functional quality (Souza et al., 2002) as well as tortilla quality (Ibrahim, A.M.H. pers. comm.) every year. Currently, this is done by processing advanced lines into tortillas, which is time-consuming and costly. Finding predictors for outstanding tortilla quality from flour, dough and/or gluten properties would make it possible to eliminate poor quality wheat lines destined for the tortilla market earlier in the breeding program. Various researchers (Andersson et al., 1994; Dowell et al., 2008; Lee et al., 2006; Millar, 2003; Razmi-Rad et al., 2007) have attempted to predict bread quality using models that take into account grain, flour and/or dough properties. Dowell et al. (2008) combined up to 50 parameters and found that flour protein content was the best predictor for bread loaf volume, whereas bake mix time was best predicted using mixograph mix time. The prediction model for loaf volume was improved by adding dough strength and viscoelastic properties (i.e., farinograph measurements). For tortillas, Waniska et al. (2004) determined flour properties that affect tortilla quality in a relatively comprehensive scale (i.e., more samples; more parameters) using 61 commercial......

Age of Oili Independent Researchers

...Age of OilIndependent researchers, used IEA’s same “bottom-up” data, have now stated the IEA was wildly optimistic. The Global Energy Systems Group has concluded the world actually reached Peak Oil in 2008, and global oil production will now begin to decline. Investment alone cannot fix the problem as the decline rates of existing fields are accelerating (Romm, 2010).The first alternative to the oil as a source of energy is the Hydropower. Hydropower is America’s leading renewable energy resource. Of all the renewable power sources, it is the most reliable, efficient and economical. TVA maintains 29 conventional hydroelectric dams throughout the Tennessee River system and one pumped-storage facility for the production of electricity ( Numerous institutional barriers exist, the main one being, in many countries, the difficulty in getting the concession to use and divert water from the river (and the renewal of the concession after the concession Period). Difficulties in gaining affordable connections to the grid are also common, as are very long procedures in order to get all permits since hydro operators have to deal with many administrations. The second alternative is solar water heating. Solar water heating, typically offsets fossil fuel combustion, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and other pollutants. Systems can help reduce peak loads, thereby postponing or preventing the need for additional base load energy generation and distribution infrastructure, such......

...Questionnaires were giving to the office to be completed and return upon request of the researcher Also the public was interviewed on different occasion about the services of the Post Office and Agencies. Interviews were also conducted as a source of primary information. Customers were interviewed in the business at the point of purchasing products. Staff was interviewed after business hours. When this procedure was not efficient, the researcher called the business to conduct the interview through the telephone. The researcher interviewed the manager and one of the accounts clerk’s. A questioner was also conducted within this research where a hand pick of clerks where asked multiply choice questions. The advantages of using the interview are: * It enables respondents to give extended answers to open-ended questions. * It is a convenient way of oral communication which is useful for individual discussions. Questions Asked of Company Personnel 1. What are some business forms used within this office? 2. What are some of the responsibilities of this office? 3.

ONYEGBUCHULEM FEBRUARY, 2015 DEFINITION OF CAPITAL 1. Financial assets or the financial value of assets, such as cash. 2. The factories, machinery and equipment owned by a business and used in production.       “Capital” can mean many things. Its specific definition depends on the context in which it is used. In general, it refers to financial resources available for use. Companies and societies with more capital are better off than those with less capital. INVESTOPEDIA EXPLAINS 'CAPITAL' Capital is different from money. Money is used simply to purchase goods and services for consumption. Capital is more durable and is used to generate wealth through investment. Examples of capital include automobiles, patents, software and brand names. All of these things are inputs that can be used to create wealth. Besides being used in production, capital can be rented out for a monthly or annual fee to create wealth. Capital itself does not exist until it is produced. Then, to create wealth, capital must be combined with labor, the work of individuals who exchange their time and skills for money. When people invest in capital by foregoing current consumption, they can enjoy......

...current level of disclosure was perceived to be lower (Underwood & Findlay, 2004). This result suggests participants turned to the Internet in order to fulfill the need for intimacy in their lives. In further support of this finding, Tidwell and Walther (2002) hypothesized CMC participants employ deeper self-disclosures than FtF participants in order to overcome the limitations of CMC, e.g., the reliance on nonverbal cues. It was found that CMC partners engaged in more frequent intimate questions and disclosures than FtF partners in order to overcome the barriers of CMC. In their 2002 study, Tidwell and Walther measured the perception of a relationship’s intimacy by the partner of each participant in both the CMC and FtF conditions. The researchers found that the participants’ partners stated their CMC partner was more effective in employing more intimate exchanges than their FtF VARYING DEFINITIONS OF ONLINE COMMUNICATION partner, and both participants and their partners rated their CMC relationship as more intimate than their FtF relationship.

The Marriage of Mr. and Mrs. Bennet

...The marriage of Mr. and Mrs. Bennet The definition of a good marriage is the perception of the judge. When considering who is to blame for the Bennet's marriage, it must be said that it depends on which perspective is being considered. Jane Austen's portrayal of Mr. and Mrs. Bennet's union leads us to believe this was not a match made in Heaven. However, if the marriage is looked at from different perspectives such as; Mr. Bennet’s, Mrs. Bennet’s, circumstance, or society’s, they provide opposing views of happiness and who is to blame in the absence of joy. After all are considered, is the marriage that bad? A person’s reasons to get married are essential in determining whether or not they can be happy. Society dictated that the Bennet's marriage was contractually imperative for both of them. Mrs. Bennet wanted to be secure and accepted a proposal that she thought would be acceptable. Mr. Bennet wanted a wife to take care of his needs and give him children, preferably a son. Both were tolerable to the other in the beginning and entered into the marriage with freewill. Early in the novel we learn the Bennet's marriage is portrayed as ill-fitted. They appear to be two opposites in humor, character, tact and priorities. In Chapter 1 we read: Mr. Bennet was so odd a mixture of quick parts, sarcastic humour, reserve, and caprice, that the experience of three-and-twenty years had been insufficient to make his wife understand his character. Her......

Bryan Kelly COM200: Interpersonal Communication Instructor Angela Gillette 8/15/2011 Dear Mr. and Mrs. ?????, First off, let me welcome you to a brand new world of love, care, family bonds and holy matrimony. My name is Bryan Kelly, and I am going to give you an idea of how interpersonal communication is going to affect your lives, and the skills/knowledge you will need in order to find yourselves together and still happy 50 years down the road. Marriage today seems, to some, to be a fly-by-night operation. I stand here today writing you to let you know that this does not have to be the case. If you two are willing to take suggestions and follow a simple set of rules based on a health relationship built on proper interpersonal communication, then you have a chance to find yourself happy and in love for some time to come. Communication is the keystone to any strong relationship. In order to truly understand ourselves and our loved ones, we must first understand the way that we interact in our day to day intermingling. Explain the principles and misconceptions in effective interpersonal communications. In the textbook Making Connections: Understanding Interpersonal Communication(Sole, 2011), we are shown that there are six basic principles at play regarding Human communications. First, we are told that communication is symbolic. Second, we are shown that communication is shared meaning. Third,......

Mr Jones

...MR. JONES (BIPOLAR DISORDER) GENERAL PSYCHOLOGY ABSTRACT This research paper discusses the movie “Mr. Jones.” It details the character Mr. Jones and tells about his current psychological condition (bipolar disorder). It further discusses the causes, symptoms, treatment, and ethical issues concerning this disorder. MR JONES Mr. Jones is a movie about a charismatic man who is diagnosed as bipolar and is committed to a psychiatric institution. He is diagnosed incorrectly at first but then receives the correct diagnosis and becomes romantically involved with psychiatrist Dr. Elizabeth Bowen. This movie deals with bipolar disorder and displays the signs and symptoms of the disorder, possible causes of the disorder, treatments of the disorder, and the ethical issues involved when the patient becomes romantically involved with his psychiatrist. Bipolar disorder, formally called manic depression, is a mental disorder characterized by severe and recurrent depression or mania with abrupt or gradual onsets and recoveries (Encyclopedia Britannica, 2011). The states of mania and depression may alternate where one mood state may predominate over the other, or they may be mixed or combined with each other (DSM-IV, 2006). Bipolar disorder causes dramatic mood swings from overly high and/or irritable to sad and hopeless, and then back again, often with periods of normal mood in between. Severe changes in energy and behavior go along with these changes. These are not the......
