TL;DR: This paper proposes a new idea for programming the MCAL problem, which allows decision-makers to set multiple aspiration levels for their problems in which "the more/higher is better" and "the less/lower is better in the aspiration levels are addressed.
Abstract: The situation of multi-choice aspiration levels (MCAL) may exist in many decision/management problems. However, the problem cannot be solved by current goal programming (GP) techniques. In order to improve the utility of GP and solve the MCAL problem, this paper proposes a new idea for programming the MCAL problem. The proposed method allows decision-makers (DMs) to set multiple aspiration levels for their problems in which “the more/higher is better” and “the less/lower is better” in the aspiration levels are addressed. In addition, illustrative examples are given to demonstrate the correctness of the proposed model.
TL;DR: This pilot study found that botulinum toxin type A significantly reduced diabetic neuropathic pain and transiently improved sleep quality.
Abstract: Background: Diabetic neuropathy is a common complication in diabetes, with patients typically experiencing diverse sensory symptoms including dysesthesias in the feet and usually accompanied by sleep disturbance. There is still no comprehensive understanding of the underlying biologic processes responsible for diabetic neuropathic pain. Thus, the current symptomatic therapy remains unsatisfactory. Recent experimental evidence suggests that botulinum toxin type A (BoNT/A) may not only inhibit the release of acetylcholine at the neuromuscular junctions, but also modulate afferent sensory fiber firing, thereby relieving neuropathic pain. Methods: A double-blind crossover trial of intradermal BoNT/A for diabetic neuropathic pain in 18 patients was conducted to evaluate the effectiveness. Results: We find significant reduction in visual analog scale (VAS) of pain by 0.83 ± 1.11 at 1 week, 2.22 ± 2.24 at 4 weeks, 2.33 ± 2.56 at 8 weeks, and 2.53 ± 2.48 at 12 weeks after injection in the BoNT/A group, as compared to the respective findings for a placebo group of 0.39 ± 1.18, −0.11 ± 2.04, 0.42 ± 1.62, and 0.53 ± 1.57 at the same timepoints ( p Conclusions: This pilot study found that botulinum toxin type A significantly reduced diabetic neuropathic pain and transiently improved sleep quality. Further large-scaled study is warranted.
TL;DR: Patent bibliometric analysis and patent network analysis indicate the developing tendency of worldwide FED production based on the synthesis of CNT materials and emitter material is taken for the key factor in R&D work to improve the efficacy in CNT-FED technology.
Abstract: Carbon nanotube field emission display (CNT-FED) represents both emerging application of nanotechnology and revolutionary invention of display. Therefore, it is an important subject to monitor the states and trends of CNT-FED technology before the next stage of development. The present paper uses patent bibliometric analysis and patent network analysis to monitor the technological trends in the field of CNT-FED. These results firstly reveal the different aspects of patenting activities in the field of CNT-FED. Then, patent network analysis indicates the developing tendency of worldwide FED production based on the synthesis of CNT materials. Furthermore, key technologies of three clusters can be identified as the depositing CNT on substrate, coating phosphor on screen and assembling process for whole device. Finally, emitter material is taken for the key factor in R&D work to improve the efficacy in CNT-FED technology.
TL;DR: It is shown that the optimal replacement period for a warranted product should be adjusted toward the end of the warranty period, and cost models developed for both a warranted and a non-warranted product are compared.
TL;DR: In summarising the roles of the T-CMM in teaching quality management, its value has been highlighted, for serving as a portable quality profile for teachers in pursuing their individual teaching careers.
Abstract: For improving the quality of teaching in higher education, besides the organisational focus or the result-oriented and momentary evaluations, attention can be paid to teachers and their ‘teaching processes’. With this in mind, the information systems quality (ISQ) laboratory developed a process-oriented model that offered teachers a systematic and incremental way for superior teaching excellence. The model, which is termed teaching capability maturity model (T-CMM), is an application of total quality management and the software CMM/CMMI. However, unlike the CMM/CMMI, which is for organisations, the ISQ's T-CMM is designed for individual teachers. Due to its novelty and interdisciplinary nature, the model is reviewed introductorily and its applied concepts and design examined, as well as evaluated in comparison with existing teaching methods. In summarising the roles of the T-CMM in teaching quality management, its value has been highlighted, for serving as a portable quality profile for teachers in pursui...
