Black rice (Oryza sativa L.) is often associated with blood lipid control. This study systematically assessed the inhibition of cholesterol absorption in vitro by black rice and explored cholesterol-lowering compounds present in this rice. Our results indicated that black rice extracts (BRE), which were aqueous, ethanol extracts and a fraction of macroporous resin caused the reduction of cholesterol absorption by inhibiting pancreatic lipase, decreasing the micellar cholesterol solubility and suppressing cholesterol uptake in Caco-2 cells. The inhibitory activity was positively associated with anthocyanin (cyanidin-3-glucoside (Cy-3-G) and peonidin-3-glucoside (Pn-3-G)) contents of the extracts. Therefore, the cholesterol absorption inhibiting properties of anthocyanins were further explored. The IC50 values of Cy-3-G and Pn-3-G against pancreatic lipase were 42.53 ± 4.45 and 18.13 ± 4.22 μg mL-1, respectively. Kinetic analysis suggested that the enzymatic inhibitory mode of Cy-3-G and Pn-3-G belonged to the competitive type. In mixed micelles, Cy-3-G and Pn-3-G dose dependently reduced the solubility of cholesterol. Meanwhile, a potential mechanism of cholesterol reduction by anthocyanins was investigated. Results showed that anthocyanins led to precipitation of cholesterol from micellar solution, which may induce the reduction of cholesterol. In Caco-2 cells, Cy-3-G and Pn-3-G (40 μg mL -1) exhibited a significant reduction in cholesterol uptake, and the degree of this reduction was almost the same as that observed in the group treated with Ezetimibe at the same concentration. These findings provide important evidence that anthocyanins may partly contribute to the inhibitory effects of black rice on cholesterol absorption, and thus may be applied for the prevention and treatment of hypercholesterolaemia. © 2013 The Royal Society of Chemistry.

Exchange rate time series is often characterized as chaotic in nature. The prediction using conventional statistical techniques and neural network with back propagation algorithm, which is most widely applied, do not give reliable prediction results. Exchange-rate time series is also a dynamic non-linear system, whose characteristics cannot be reflected by the static neutral network. The Nonlinear Autoregressive with eXogenous input (NARX) includes the feedback of the network output, therefore can reflect the dynamic property of the system. This paper proved the chaotic property of the exchange-rate time series, calculated the embedding dimension and time delay of the series, and established the exchange-rate forecast model using the NARX network. The result shows that the NARX network has better short-term forecast effect, comparing to the BP network and the SVM model. © 2010 IEEE. Source

Chaotic time-series is a dynamic nonlinear system whose features can not be fully reflected by Linear Regression Model or Static Neural Network. While Nonlinear Autoregressive with eXogenous input includes feedback of network output, therefore, it can better reflect the system's dynamic feature. Take annual active times of sunspot as an example, after verifying the chaos of sunspot time-series and calculating the series' embedding dimension and delay, we establish sunspot prediction model with NARX network. The result shows that compared with BP Network and ARIMA Model, NARX network can better predict the chaos. © 2011 ACADEMY PUBLISHER. Source

This research study develops and tests a theoretical acceptance model to explain users' acceptance of computer-based communication media. The model, which is referred to as TAM-CCM, originated from the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) and conforms to the context of Computer-based Communication Media (CCM). It explains perceived usefulness and actual system use in terms of system characteristics (information process support and facilitating conditions), social influence (subjective norm and rules on media use), and user characteristics (experience and computer self efficacy). The model was tested using empirical data collected at nine organizations (N = 425), of which four had media rules and five had no similar rules. The TAM-CCM model was strongly supported accounting for 74% of the variance in usefulness perceptions and up to 74% of the variance in behavior intention to use. System characteristics (information process support), social influence (subjective norm and rules on media use), and user experience significantly influenced user acceptance of computer-based communication media. These advanced theory findings on computer-based communication media adoption and the research approach contribute to future research aimed at incorporating the TAM into specific contexts. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd.

In people’s life and communication, emotional communication is omnipresent, a complex psychological changing process of human communication in language. It is people’s unique personality characteristics that make emotional communication become one of the important factors in foreign language communication an obstacle. In addition to language, the most important in foreign language exchange is emotional communication. Only language full of emotion can make people understand each other’s true feelings, likes and dislikes, personality characteristics, promoting the further development of people’s relationship, and making society more harmonious. However, it’s not simple to implement emotional communication in foreign exchange, which is closely related to personality characteristics, education and life background of both sides. This work briefly analyzes the implementation of emotional communication. © 2015 Taylor & Francis Group, London. Source
