Abstract

What makes beliefs thrive? In this paper, we model the dissemination of bona fide science versus pseudoscience, making use of Dan Sperber's epidemiological model of representations. Drawing on cognitive research on the roots of irrational beliefs and the institutional arrangement of science, we explain the dissemination of beliefs in terms of their salience to human cognition and their ability to adapt to specific cultural ecologies. By contrasting the cultural development of science and pseudoscience along a number of dimensions (selective pressure, ...

Abstract

Measles virus (MeV) infection is characterized by the formation of multinuclear giant cells (MGC). We report that beta interferon (IFN-β) production is amplified in vitro by the formation of virus-induced MGC derived from human epithelial cells or mature conventional dendritic cells. Both fusion and IFN-β response amplification were inhibited in a dose-dependent way by a fusion-inhibitory peptide after MeV infection of epithelial cells. This effect was observed at both low and high multiplicities of infection. While in the absence of virus ...

Abstract

We experimentally obtained a direct image of the nuclear wave functions of H2+ by dissociating the molecule via electron attachment and determining the vibrational state using the cold target recoil ion momentum spectroscopy technique. Our experiment visualizes the nodal structure of different vibrational states. We compare our results to the widely used reflection approximation and to quantum simulations and discuss the limits of position measurements in molecules imposed by the uncertainty principle. ...

 

Ultralow-loss silicon waveguide crossing using Bloch modes in index-engineered cascaded multimode-interference couplers

  [CiTO]
Opt. Lett., Vol. 38, No. 18. (2013), pp. 3608-3611, doi:10.1364/ol.38.003608

Abstract

We investigate the loss mechanism in three-moded multimode-interference couplers that are the building blocks of a compact and low-loss waveguide crossing structure. Broadband silicon waveguide crossing arrays with <0.01  dB insertion loss per crossing are proposed using cascaded multimode-interference couplers, where lateral subwavelength nanostructures are used to reduce the insertions loss. We design and fabricate a 101×101 waveguide crossing array with a pitch of 3.08 μm. Insertion loss of ∼0.02  dB per crossing and crosstalk <−40  dB at 1550 nm operating wavelength and a broad transmission ...

Abstract

Spacetime singularities that arise in gravitational collapse are always hidden inside of black holes. This is the essence of the weak cosmic censorship conjecture. The hypothesis, put forward by Penrose 40 years ago, is still one of the most important open questions in general relativity. In this Letter, we reanalyze extreme situations which have been considered as counterexamples to the weak cosmic censorship conjecture. In particular, we consider the absorption of scalar particles with large angular momentum by a black hole. ...

Abstract

The International Association for the Properties of Water and Steam (IAPWS) encouraged an extensive research effort to update the IAPS Formulation 1985 for the Thermal Conductivity of Ordinary Water Substance, leading to the adoption of a Release on the IAPWS Formulation 2011 for the Thermal Conductivity of Ordinary Water Substance. This paper describes the development and evaluation of the 2011 formulation, which provides a correlating equation for the thermal conductivity of water for fluid states from the melting temperature up to ...

Abstract

The near-simultaneous appearance of most modern animal body plans (phyla) <530 million years ago during the Cambrian explosion is strong evidence for a brief interval of rapid phenotypic and genetic innovation, yet the exact speed and nature of this grand adaptive radiation remain debated [112]. Crucially, rates of morphological evolution in the past (i.e., in ancestral lineages) can be inferred from phenotypic differences among living organismsjust as molecular evolutionary rates in ancestral lineages can be inferred from genetic divergences [13]. We ...

Abstract

Graphene is an almost ideal two-dimensional system. Unlike other two-dimensional electron gas systems realized in silicon or gallium arsenide, the electron wave functions are very close to the surrounding environment. While this causes problems in trying to passivate the surface without reducing the mobility, it does allow direct electrical access to the two-dimensional surface states using scanning probe techniques. In this review, we look at recent advances in the nanoanalytics of the surface and edges of graphene using scanning probe techniques. ...

 

An accurate expression for radial distribution function of the Lennard-Jones fluid

Abstract

A simple and accurate expression for radial distribution function (RDF) of the Lennard-Jones fluid is presented. The expression explicitly states the RDF as a continuous function of reduced interparticle distance, temperature, and density. It satisfies the limiting conditions of zero density and infinite distance imposed by statistical thermodynamics. The distance dependence of this expression is expressed by an equation which contains 11 adjustable parameters. These parameters are fitted to 353 RDF data, obtained by molecular dynamics calculations, and then expressed as ...

Abstract

This paper is a further development of the approach to weak cosmic censorship proposed by the authors in Ref. 5. We state and prove a modified version of that work's main result under significantly relaxed assumptions on the asymptotic structure of spacetime. The result, which imposes strong constraints on the occurrence of naked singularities of the strong curvature type, is in particular applicable to physically realistic cosmological models. ...

Abstract

The semiempirical method for calculation of the dipole moment functions for NO and CO molecules as a piecewise-continuous ones has been developed. The dipole moment functions found exhibit physically correct asymptotic behaviour at small and large internuclear separations and agree with the dipole moment functions near the nuclear equilibrium position of the molecule. In the framework of the approach the multipole and exhange interactions have been considered to improve the dipole moment function under large internuclear distances including the ...

Abstract

William Lane Craig's defence of the kalam cosmological argument rests heavily on two philosophical arguments against a past-eternal universe. In this article I take issue with one of these arguments, what I call the âHilbert's Hotel Argumentâ â namely, that the metaphysical absurdity of an actually infinite number of things existing precludes the possibility of a beginningless past. After explaining this argument, I proceed to raise some initial doubts. After setting those aside, I show that the argument is ineffective against ...

 

Structural insights into the association between BCAR3 and Cas family members, an atypical complex implicated in anti-oestrogen resistance.

Abstract

The association between novel Src homology 2-containing protein (NSP) and Crk-associated substrate (Cas) family members contributes to integrin and receptor tyrosine kinase signalling and is involved in conferring anti-oestrogen resistance to human breast carcinomas. The precise role of this association in tumorigenesis remains controversial, and the molecular basis for the complex NSP and Cas protein form is unknown. Here we present a pluridisciplinary approach, including small-angle X-ray scattering, that provides first insights into the structure of the complex formed between breast ...

Abstract

Green fluorescent protein (GFP) and other FP fusions have been extensively utilized to track protein dynamics in living cells. Recently, development of photoactivatable, photoswitchable and photoconvertible fluorescent proteins (PAFPs) has made it possible to investigate the fate of discrete subpopulations of tagged proteins. Initial limitations to their use (due to their tetrameric nature) were overcome when monomeric variants, such as Dendra, mEos, and mKikGR were cloned/engineered. Here, we report that by closing the field diaphragm, selective, precise and irreversible green-to-red photoconversion ...

Abstract

Naturally occurring and injected dust particles are observed in the DIII-D tokamak in the outer midplane scrape-off-layer (SOL) using a fast-framing visible camera. Sources of naturally occurring dust include material eroded from plasma facing components by transient events such as edge- localized-modes (ELMs) or disruptions. Dust particles ablate when they enter a hot region of plasma near the separatrix, or when an ELM filament intercepts a dust particle already present in the SOL. Modeling shows that line radiation from the ablation ...

Abstract

Derivation of the minimum sample size is an important consideration in an applied research effort. When the outcome is measured at a single time point, sample size procedures are well known and widely applied. The corresponding situation for longitudinal designs, however, is less well developed. In this paper, we adapt the generalized estimating equation (GEE) approach of Liang and Zeger to sample size calculations for discrete and continuous outcome variables. The non-central version of the Wald χ2 test is considered. We ...

Abstract

ARDS may occur after either septic or nonseptic injuries. Sepsis is the major cause of ARDS, but little is known about the differences between sepsis-related and non-sepsis-related ARDS. A total of 2,786 patients with ARDS-predisposing conditions were enrolled consecutively into a prospective cohort, of which 736 patients developed ARDS. We defined sepsis-related ARDS as ARDS developing in patients with sepsis and non-sepsis-related ARDS as ARDS developing after nonseptic injuries, such as trauma, aspiration, and multiple transfusions. Patients with both septic and ...

Abstract

By characterizing the geographic and functional spectrum of human genetic variation, the 1000 Genomes Project aims to build a resource to help to understand the genetic contribution to disease. Here we describe the genomes of 1,092 individuals from 14 populations, constructed using a combination of low-coverage whole-genome and exome sequencing. By developing methods to integrate information across several algorithms and diverse data sources, we provide a validated haplotype map of 38 million single nucleotide polymorphisms, 1.4 million short insertions and deletions, and more ...

Abstract

Community is an important attribute of Pocket Switched Networks (PSN), because mobile devices are carried by people who tend to belong to communities. We analysed community structure from mobility traces and used for forwarding algorithms [12], which shows significant impact of community. Here, we propose and evaluate three novel distributed community detection approaches with great potential to detect both static and temporal communities. We find that with suitable configuration of the threshold values, the distributed community detection can approximate their corresponding ...

Abstract

Citation-based methods have been widely studied and employed for clustering academic resources and mapping science. Although effective, these methods suffer from citation delay. In this study, we extend reference and citation analysis to a broader notion from social perspective. We coin the term "social reference" to refer to the references of literatures in social academic web environment. We propose clustering methods using social reference information from CiteULike. We experiment for journal clustering and author clustering using social reference and compare with ...

Abstract

Variable selection in the linear regression model takes many apparent faces from both frequentist and Bayesian standpoints. In this paper we introduce a variable selection method referred to as a rescaled spike and slab model. We study the importance of prior hierarchical specifications and draw connections to frequentist generalized ridge regression estimation. Specifically, we study the usefulness of continuous bimodal priors to model hypervariance parameters, and the effect scaling has on the posterior mean through its relationship to penalization. Several model selection strategies, some frequentist and some Bayesian in ...

Abstract

In a series of much discussed articles and books, William Lane Craig defends the view that the past could not consist in a beginningless series of events. In the present paper, I cast a critical eye on just one part of Craig's case for the finitude of the past - viz. his philosophical argument against the possibility of actually infinite sets of objects in the "real world". I shall try to show that this argument is unsuccessful. I shall also take ...

Abstract

Social tagging and controlled indexing both facilitate access to information resources. Given the increasing popularity of social tagging and the limitations of controlled indexing (primarily cost and scalability), it is reasonable to investigate to what degree social tagging could substitute for controlled indexing. In this study, we compared CiteULike tags to Medical Subject Headings (MeSH) terms for 231,388 citations indexed in MEDLINE. In addition to descriptive analyses of the data sets, we present a paper-by-paper analysis of tags and MeSH terms: ...

In this paper, I argue that atheists who think that the issue of God’s existence or non-existence is an important one; assign a greater than negligible probability to God’s existence; and are not in possession of a plausible argument for scepticism about the truth-directedness of uttering such prayers in their own cases, are under a prima facie epistemic obligation to pray to God that He stop them being atheists. ...

Systematic reviews can be a very useful decision-making tool because they objectively summarize large amounts of information, identify gaps in medical research, and identify beneficial or harmful interventions. Consumers can use systematic reviews to help them make health care decisions. Policymakers can use systematic reviews to help them make decisions about what types of health care to provide. Despite the potential value of systematic reviews, ...

Abstract

The transition to turbulence of the flow around a circular cylinder is studied by a three-dimensional numerical simulation of the NavierâStokes equations system in the Reynolds number range 100â300. The numerical method is second-order accurate in space and time and Neumann boundary conditions are used at the two boundaries in the spanwise direction; non-reflecting boundary conditions are specified for the outlet downstream boundary. This study predicts the frequency modulation and the formation of a discontinuity region delimited by two frequency steps ...

Abstract

Citizens increasingly use the Internet to buy products or engage in interactions with others, both individuals and businesses. In doing so they invariably share (personal) data. While extensive data protection legislation exists in many countries around the world, citizens are not always aware (enough) of their rights and obligations with respect to sharing (personal) data. To remedy this gap, users ought to become better informed of companies’ data processing practices. In the past, various research groups have attempted to create tools ...

Abstract

In this paper we consider the implications of a cosmological constant for the evolution of the universe, under a set of assumptions motivated by the holographic and horizon complementarity principles. We discuss the “causal patch” description of spacetime required by this framework, and present some simple examples of cosmologies described this way. We argue that these assumptions inevitably lead to very deep paradoxes, which seem to require major revisions of our usual assumptions. ...

Abstract

We present evidence for a continuum phase in a theory of 2D causal set quantum gravity which contains a dimensionless non-locality parameter ∈ (0, 1]. We also find a phase transition between this continuum phase and a new crystalline phase which is characterized by a set of covariant observables. For a fixed size of the causal set, the transition temperature β −1 c decreases monotonically with . The locus of the transition in the β 2 ...

 

Genetic factors predisposing to homosexuality may increase mating success in heterosexuals☆

Abstract

There is considerable evidence that human sexual orientation is genetically influenced, so it is not known how homosexuality, which tends to lower reproductive success, is maintained in the population at a relatively high frequency. One hypothesis proposes that while genes predisposing to homosexuality reduce homosexuals' reproductive success, they may confer some advantage in heterosexuals who carry them. However, it is not clear what such an advantage may be. To investigate this, we examine a data set where a large community-based twin ...
