None of this has made Nutini a household name. He’s inherently an old soul singer.’ The commercial world, on the other hand, has taken note: Puma hired Nutini and his song New Shoes to be part of a global advertising push. Ray Ban, too, has featured him in a campaign.
Sometimes, we would plan his escape to America. I told him maybe I could find a woman who would marry him; he was willing to forsake the mail order bride he had imported from Tunisia, who was even more conservative than he. I told him that if we could just get him a tourist visa, he could petition for political asylum when he arrived.
While such devices attempt through various strategies to address this problem, it is not currently known how much improvement in SNR is needed to provide a noticeable benefit. To investigate what is a noticeable benefit, we measured the JND in SNR for both normal hearing and hearing impaired listeners. Here, we report the SNR JNDs of 69 participants of varying hearing ability, estimated using either an adaptive or fixed level procedure.
In this paper, we introduce a novel technique, DEMARCATE (DEnsity based MAgnetic Resonance image Clustering for Assessing Tumor hEterogeneity) to explore the entire tumor heterogeneity density profiles (THDPs) obtained from the full tumor voxel space. THDPs are smoothed representations of the probability density function of the tumor images. We develop tools for analyzing such objects under the Fisher “Rao Riemannian framework that allows us to construct metrics for THDP comparisons across patients, which can be used in conjunction with standard clustering approaches.
The experimental results of this study show that the four weighted fusion methods compose a computationally efficient and reliable system for multi sensor measurement problems, especially for freeform surface measurement. A comparison of weighted fusion with residual approximation based fusion has also been conducted by providing the input datasets with different noise levels and sample sizes. The results demonstrated that weighted fusion and residual approximation based fusion are complementary approaches applicable to most fusion scenarios..
The integration of plant and Earth sciences offers the opportunity to develop and test palaeobotanical monitors and recorders (palaeoproxies) of past atmospheric change that are understood from a mechanistic perspective, with the underpinning responses being identified and understood at the genetic level. This review highlights how this approach has been used to deliver two distinct palaeoproxies. The first is based on the negative relationship between stomata (breathing pores found on the leaf surface) and atmospheric CO2 concentration; the second is based on tracking chemical changes seen in the composition of pollen and spores to reconstruct changes in the flux of UV B radiation on the Earth’s surface and from this infer changes in stratospheric processes linked to the eruption and emplacement of Large Igneous Provinces.
