The neural dynamics in perceiving well-learned sequences and its modulation by task demand were investigated in this study in which participants were asked to observe stroke-by-stroke display of Chinese characters composed of two radicals while their brain activity was monitored with the event-related potential (ERP) technique. Experiment 1 used an accuracy judgment task that would draw participants' attention to the violation of the writing sequence whereas Experiment 2 required participants to judge the completion of the display and thus the more automatic aspects of sequence processing could be revealed. In Experiment 1, the within-radical boundary reversal produced bilateral posterior N2 enhancement and the cross-boundary reversal elicited a left N2 effect and right posterior N2 reduction on the critical stroke. Both types of reversal elicited P3 effects on the critical stroke and sustained negativity effects on the following stroke, with the size being larger for the cross-boundary reversal. In Experiment 2, in addition to the P3 effects, the within-boundary reversal elicited a left posterior N2 effect and the cross-boundary reversal elicited right posterior N2 reduction on the critical stroke. Moreover, on the following stroke, the crossboundary reversal elicited a right N2 effect and both types of reversal elicited sustained positivity effects. These findings demonstrate that native Chinese readers use their sequential knowledge to predict upcoming strokes in perceiving the writing of characters and to construct appropriate representations for the action sequence regardless of whether such predictions and constructions are required by the task. © 2009 Elsevier Inc.

People all over the world use spatial metaphors to represent temporal sequencing, but so far the online stages during the comprehension of temporal sequencing still lack evidence. To explore this issue, the current EEG study constructed vertical anomaly and horizontal anomaly by exchanging spatial terms in vertical and horizontal temporal sequencing concepts in Mandarin. Both the vertical and the horizontal anomaly indicated an N400 effect (340 ms after stimulus onset) and a positive effect in a late time window (620 ms after stimulus onset). Additionally, the horizontal anomaly showed a reduced P2 effect (200- 260 ms after stimulus onset) that might related to spatial processing. Direct comparison between the two anomaly effects revealed that the vertical anomaly evoked a stronger effect in an early N400 time window (from 360 to 440 ms), whereas the horizontal anomaly evoked a stronger effect in a late N400 time window (from 500 to 580 ms). These results indicate multiple stages during the comprehension of temporal sequencing. The relation between the current results and spatial metaphor differences is also discussed. © Springer-Verlag 2011.

In this paper, we focus on the problem of signature and role extraction from large-scale mail archives. Due to the huge scale and great diversity of large-scale mail archives, the extraction methods should not only be able to extract signatures and roles accurately without any training data, but also be general enough to work well with large-scale mail archives with different characteristics. To address this problem, we first propose an unsupervised language model based method to identify sig-natures from large numbers of emails, and then present an unsupervised two-stage method to effectively extract roles from the identified signatures. Experimental results on two real-world datasets show that our methods are general and effective for both the signature and role extrac-tion from large-scale mail archives. © 2015 SERSC.

The paper examines the linguistic landscape in an indoor public place, Robot Open Space in Zhongguancun Dream Laboratory, which is a building housing a handful of innovative entrepreneurial enterprises. The subject of analysis in this present paper is the impact of different spaces on the features of linguistic landscape. Each of the three major sub-spaces in the company Robot Open Space has different functions and the linguistic landscape with its different features varies accordingly. This present study has the following contributions. First, the shift of analytical attention from the outdoor linguistic landscape to the indoor linguistic landscape provides a new angle for LL analysis and further expands the scenery of linguistic landscape. Then, the newly establish analytical framework, the “multimodal model for linguistic landscape analysis” enrich the current theoretical models that is quite rare. Last, the qualitative analysis of the linguistic landscapes in different spaces shed light on the correlation between space and linguistic landscape, indicating that space is an integral factor to be considered when it comes to LL analysis. © 2016, Australian International Academic Centre PTY LTD.

In this paper, CPCM (Composite Phase Change Material) was manufactured with metal foam matrix used as filling material. The temperature curves were obtained by experiment. The performance of heat transfer was analyzed. The experimental results show that metal foam matrix can improve temperature uniformity in phase change thermal storage material and enhance heat conduction ability. The thermal performance of CPCM is significantly improved. The efficiency of temperature control can be obviously improved by adding metal foam in phase change material. CPCM is in solid-liquid two-phase region when temperature is close to phase change point of paraffin. An approximate plateau appears. The plateau can be considered as the temperature control zone of CPCM. Heat can be transferred from hot source and be uniformly spread in thermal storage material by using metal foam matrix since thermal storage material has the advantage of strong heat storage capacity and disadvantage of poor heat conduction ability. Natural convection promotes the melting of solid-liquid phase change material. Good thermal conductivity of foam metal accelerates heat conduction of solid-liquid phase change material. The interior temperature difference decreases and the whole temperature becomes more uniform. For the same porosity with a metal foam, melting time of solid-liquid phase change material decreases. Heat conduction is enhanced and natural convection is suppressed when pore size of metal foam is smaller. The thermal storage time decreases and heat absorption rate increases when the pore size of metal foam reduces. The research results can be used to guide fabricating the CPCM. © 2015, Science Press, Institute of Engineering Thermophysics, CAS and Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.

Nowadays, digital campuses have been building in many institutes and universities in China. Many web application systems such as digital library, teaching management systems and campus card systems have been clustered in digital campus. Most of these systems are run in IPv4 protocol at current time. With the development of IPv6 network in Chinese institutes and universities, it becomes necessary for web systems to migrate from IPv4 to IPv6. In this thesis the current situation of IPv6 runs in Chinese institutes and universities is introduced first. Then a typical structure of web application systems—JSP and the IPv6 environments support for JSP is analyzed. At last, an example of JSP web system which distributed in Apache and Tomcat server clusters in IPv6 environment is revealed. It shows the method and procedure which web applications migrate from IPv4 to IPv6. © 2014 WIT Press.

The China-UK Joint Declaration on Building a Global Comprehensive Strategic Partnership for the 21st Century is one of the fruits of Chinese President Xi Jinping’s recent official state visit to the Great Britain. As a typical and important diplomatic language document, the Joint Declaration deserves scientific research. In this paper, based on the six process types of Halliday’s Transitivity system, we attempt to disclose the diplomatic thinking underlying the employment of process types and make a contrastive study of the diplomatic thinking of both China and the UK. The research leads to three findings. Firstly, the high frequency of material process clause in both Chinese and English versions reflects the “Action thinking”, a shared diplomatic thinking adopted by the two nations. Secondly, the Chinese version employs more relational process clauses than the English version, which is an indication of the “Relationality thinking” underlying Chinese diplomacy and it is much less emphasized or even absent in British diplomacy. Thirdly, the analysis of the mental process clauses reveals that China has an “Inclusive thinking” in its diplomatic exchange with Britain whereas the UK a “Friendship thinking”. © 2016, Australian International Academic Centre PTY LTD.

Although construction accidental insurance (CAI) is mandatory in China, the really holding rate is under 30%. The reason of low purchasing rate and deficiencies of CAI remain unexplored. Our analysis shows employment size, the attitude of the proprietors and turbulence of the business cycle influence the prevalence of CAI. The deficiencies of CAI result in inefficient protection for farmer-labors. Compared to the deficiencies of CAI, construction multiemployer health insurance (CMHI) is an efficient and effective way to provide security for farmer-labors. It can stimulate the holding of health insurance by exploiting cross-firm economies of scale in the purchase of health insurance services. And multiemployer health insurance contain cross-employer portable health benefits that do not require second probation period when labor enroll another employer after leaving, at the same time it cover spells of unemployment. Additionally, construction multiemployer health insurance is a beneficial supplement for the construction accident insurance in China. © 2015 ASCE.
