The problem of concentration in the classroom by Chinese university students is getting worse. Hence, it is an important issue to investigate how to improve students' concentration in the classroom. In this study, we took the variable of chronotypes representing sleep behaviors and the main research purpose was to examine that whether concentration in the classroom can be improved through the view of sleep behaviors. The researcher proposed an integrated model to examine the influence from chrono-types on the concentration in the classroom. In addition, the mediation test of excessive daytime sleepiness and the moderation test of study load were also included. The convenience sampling was used of which the participants were students from four universities in Guizhou province in south western China (n=455). The goodness-of-fit test showed that the proposed model fit the empirical data. Afterward, the results are as the following: (1) more severe excessive daytime sleepiness comes along with poorer concentration in the classroom, (2) the level of excessive daytime sleepiness is lower for morning chrono-type, (3) the morning chrono-type has positive indirect influences on concentration in the classroom and (4) study load would moderate the influence of chrono-types on excessive daytime sleepiness.

The penetration of cellular networks worldwide and emergence of smart phones has led to a revolution in mobile content. Users consume diverse content when, for example, exchanging photos, playing games, browsing websites, and viewing multimedia. Current phone platforms provide protections for user privacy, the cellular radio, and the integrity of the OS itself. However, few offer protections to protect the content once it enters the phone. For example, MP3-based MMS or photo content placed on Android smart phones can be extracted and shared with impunity. In this paper, we explore the requirements and enforcement of digital rights management (DRM) policy on smart phones. An analysis of the Android market shows that DRM services should ensure: a) protected content is accessible only by authorized phones b) content is only accessible by provider-endorsed applications, and c) access is regulated by contextual constraints, e.g., used for a limited time, a maximum number of viewings, etc. The Porscha system developed in this work places content proxies and reference monitors within the Android middleware to enforce DRM policies embedded in received content. A pilot study controlling content obtained over SMS, MMS, and email illustrates the expressibility and enforcement of Porscha policies. Our experiments demonstrate that Porscha is expressive enough to articulate needed DRM policies and that their enforcement has limited impact on performance. © 2010 ACM.

A rapid increasing of information on the Internet and World Wide Web causes information overloaded problem. Thus, search engines become important tools to help WWW users to discover the information they need. With an exponentially increasing of published research paper, community-based research paper sharing systems and academic search engines become indispensable tools for researchers to search for any research papers in their fields of expertise and related fields according to their interests. To improve a quality of research paper searching, an academic search engines capability should be enhanced. This paper proposed an architecture of an academic search engine with personalized search result ranking mechanism. To evaluate the performance of personalized search result ranking mechanism, twenty-five graduate students were invited to be participants in this research study. As a criterion, the participants were asked to use a prototype of academic search engine to find and bookmark any research papers according to their interests. This would guarantee that each participants list of interesting research paper could be recorded. The Normalized Discounted Cumulative Gain (NDCG) was used as a metric to determine that performance of personalized search result ranking mechanism. During the experiment, each participant was asked to search for research papers according to their interests. The result of the experiment suggested that the personalized search result ranking mechanism outperformed the original search result ranking. Hence, the proposed architecture of the academic search engine with personalized search engine mechanism does benefit a tasks of research paper discovery. It improves the quality of research paper searching. © 2016 ACM.

The energy and materials are traditionally viewed as resources for sustaining urban systems. Waste is a potential resource which needs particular attention. Improving environmental performance of urban areas means decoupling economic performance from environmental burden of human activities. Efficient resource use can reduce the pressure in natural resource inputs and waste outputs. The fundamental idea of this work is based on the urban metabolism concept which focuses on the consumption of resources and their cycling within the urban system. The waste-to-energy conversion technologies have gained widely international attentions with high potential to improve resource use efficiency. The research hypothesis is that municipality solid waste (MSW)-based combine cooling, heating and power (CCHP) systems could be effectively applied to increase resource efficiency at an urban level, representing a promising opportunity to couple environmental, economic and societal benefits. This paper aims to examine the technology and policy options for promoting MSW-based CCHP systems based on socio-technical systems approach. This work explicitly recognizes that the provision of energy services and resource use efficiency challenges occur at the intersection of technology, policy and society. The analysis revealed that there are promising system configurations available for both small-scale and large-scale systems. The development of MSW-based CCHP systems needs to consider the interdependence of technology and society.

Energy Policy | Year: 2010
Energy use in Bangkok accounts for a large portion of the total energy consumption in Thailand. Few energy and carbon studies, however, have focused on the level of the city. International research indicates that cities are the key drivers of energy usage and the associated carbon emissions. This paper presents a study on the options for energy and carbon development for the city of Bangkok. The Longrange Energy Alternatives Planning System (LEAP) model is used to simulate a range of policy interventions and to predict how these would change energy and carbon development from 2000 to 2025. The planning period is assumed to start in 2005, and 2000 is used as the baseline year. Sustainability of the sixteen proposed policies and scenarios is analyzed using a multi-criteria decision-making approach. Results of this study provide an insight into Bangkok's energy and carbon future and highlight the steps required to promote a sustainable low-carbon society. The most significant energy savings are in the transport sector, where a modal shift from private passenger vehicles to mass transit systems has the potential to significantly reduce energy demand, carbon emissions, and local air pollutants. © 2009 Elsevier Ltd.

The objective of this paper is to find the optimum spinning reserve (SR) in a power system integrating renewable energy sources (RES). Over SR causes higher production cost whereas insufficient SR causes outage cost. Optimum SR should yield lowest summation of production cost and outage cost. In general, load demand may deviate from forecasted load profile whereas RES output is intermittent. These result in uncertainty. This paper employs a stochastic process to encounter uncertainty by using Monte Carlo simulation. It is tested on a 10 unit system plus 1 RES for 24 hour planning. SR is varied 7-12% of forecasted load whereas load standard deviation is varied 6-8%. Input values are obtained by sampling randomly based on normal distribution 1,000 values for each hour, resulting in 1,152,000 simulations for all cases. Numerical results reveal that the optimum SR could be 8% or 11-12% depending on load deviation and outage cost. © 2015 IEEE.

This paper proposes a concept for design and fabrication about a compact microstrip bandstop resonator for dual-band wireless communication. This proposed microstrip bandstop resonator is constructed from 2 open-circuited quarter wave-length transmission line stubs and J-inverter which are used to separate widely between low and high frequency bands by using transmission lines theory and admittance inverter. The low frequency band of 800-900 MHz can be served the CDMA mobile networks of CAT Telecom Public Company Limited in Thailand, and the high frequency band of 2.3-2.7 GHz can be served the wireless networks both WiFi-2.45 GHz and WiMA-2.5 GHz. The experimental results have been shown that the measured return losses are in good agreement with the simulated ones both the entire higher and lower frequency bands. Refer to considering the return loss of 20 dB, the bandwidth of a measured microstrip bandstop resonator is close to the simulated bandwidth for the lower frequency band, but it is wider than the simulated bandwidth for the higher frequency band. Moreover, the measured insertion losses are high, but those are in good agreement with the simulated ones. The advantages of this proposed microstrip bandstop resonator are as follows: the return losses are good and acceptable, the wide rejection band can be owned, and the compact size can be achieved. © 2011 IEEE.

Energy security is strongly related to energy and climate policies. Understanding of energy security implications is critically important for shaping policy measures. This study presents the future energy security assessment in Thailand under three energy scenarios. The assessment was based on the use of energy security indicators to track the impact of changes in the energy system under different energy scenarios for the period 2012-2030. These indicators were clustered into four groups, including energy demand, diversification of energy supply resources, environmental dimension, and energy market. The three scenarios were derived from published data. The analysis suggests that Thailand needs to develop specific policy measures to enhance energy security in terms of energy market dimension and to pay more attention in national energy efficiency and total CO2 emissions to maintain the economic growth. © 2015 The Authors.
