TL;DR: It is concluded that the combination of different levels of student regulation and regulation from the teaching process jointly determines university students’ level of academic stress.
Abstract: The SRL vs. ERL theory has shown that the combination of levels of student self-regulation and regulation from the teaching context produces linear effects on achievement emotions and coping strategies. However, a similar effect on stress factors and symptoms of university students has not yet been demonstrated. The aim of this study was to test this prediction. It was hypothesized that the level of student self-regulation (low/medium/high), in interaction with the level of external regulation from teaching (low/medium/high), would also produce a linear effect on stress factors and symptoms of university students. A total of 527 undergraduate students completed validated questionnaires about self-regulation, regulatory teaching, stress factors and symptoms. Using an ex post facto design by selection, ANOVAs and MANOVAs (3 x 3; 5 x 1; 5 x 2) were carried out. The results confirmed that the level of self-regulation and the level of regulatory teaching jointly determined the level of stress factors and symptoms of university students. Once again, a five-level heuristic of possible combinations was configured to jointly determined university students’ level of academic stress. We concluded that the combination of different levels of student regulation levels and regulation from teaching process jointly determines university students’ level of academic stress. The implications for university students’ emotional health, stress prevention and well-being are established.
TL;DR: The Cardiff Geo-Observatory as discussed by the authors measured temperature in a Quaternary aged sand and gravel aquifer in 61 boreholes and at a pilot shallow open-loop ground source heating system.
Abstract: Low-enthalpy ground source heating and cooling is recognized as one strategy that can contribute towards reducing reliance on traditional, increasingly insecure, CO2-intense thermal power generation, as well as helping to address fuel poverty. Development of this technology is applicable in urban areas where high housing density often coincides with the presence of shallow aquifers. In urban areas groundwater temperatures can be elevated owing to the subsurface urban heat island effect. Uptake and development of this technology is often limited by initial investment costs; however, baseline temperature monitoring and characterization of urban aquifers, conducted in partnership with local authorities, can provide a greater degree of certainty around resource and sustainability that can facilitate better planning, regulation and management of subsurface heat. We present a novel high-density, city-scale groundwater temperature observatory and introduce a 3D geological model aimed at addressing the needs of developers, planners, regulators and policy makers. The Cardiff Geo-Observatory measures temperature in a Quaternary aged sand and gravel aquifer in 61 boreholes and at a pilot shallow open-loop ground source heating system. We show that repurposing existing infrastructure can provide a cost-effective method of developing monitoring networks, and make recommendations on establishing similar geo-observatories.

TL;DR: In this paper, a framework of excellence for the development of an online press office at Cardiff Council has been provided, which is supported by a survey of journalists who have used Cardiff's media service and enhanced by assessment of existing best practice across local authorities in the UK.
Abstract: Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to provide a framework of excellence for the development of an online press office at Cardiff CouncilDesign/methodology/approach – The paper presents an analysis of key issues of public relations theory as they apply to the provision of an online press office This is supported by a survey of journalists who have used Cardiff's media service and enhanced by assessment of examples of existing best practice across local authorities in the UKFindings – The result is a suggested framework of nine core elements for excellence, which draws on theory and practice and could be applied by other local authorities The study shows that provided these guiding principles are followed, a basic site can be as successful as one with all the bells and whistlesOriginality/value – The paper makes a substantial contribution to the evidence base for the implementation of local authority online press offices in the UK

TL;DR: In this article, two schemas/algorithms that allow users to check the integrity and availability of their outsourced data on untrusted data stores (i.e., third-party data storages) are reviewed.
Abstract: A growing trend over the last few years is storage outsourcing, where the concept of third-party data warehousing has become more popular. This trend prompts several interesting privacy and security issues. One of the biggest concerns with third-party data storage providers is accountability. This article, critically reviews two schemas/algorithms that allow users to check the integrity and availability of their outsourced data on untrusted data stores (i.e., third-party data storages). The reviewed schemas are provable data possession (PDP) and proofs of retrievability (POR). Both are cryptographic protocols designed to provide clients the assurance that their data are secure on the untrusted data storages. Furthermore, a conceptual framework is proposed to mitigate the weaknesses of the current storage solutions.
