Yeungnam University is a private research university, located in Gyeongsan, North Gyeongsang, South Korea. The university's predecessors, Taegu College and Chunggu College, were founded in Daegu in 1947 and 1950 respectively. In 1967, the two colleges merged by President Park Chung-hee to form the degree-granting Yeungnam University. In 1972, the university's new main campus opened in Gyeongsan east of Daegu. The university includes colleges of Law and Medicine and a teaching hospital. Wikipedia.

A motor driving apparatus included in a home appliance may include an inverter to convert a direct current (DC) power into an alternating current (AC) power through a switching operation and to output the converted AC power to a motor, an output current detector to detect an output current flowing through the motor, a controller to control the inverter, wherein, during a first interval after the motor stops, the controller controls a phase current of a predetermined frequency to flow through the motor to estimate a position of a rotor of the motor, and estimates the position of the rotor of the motor based on the detected output current while the phase current of the predetermined frequency flows through the motor. Thereby, the sensorless motor driving apparatus can easily estimate the position of the motor rotor.

Significance: Selenium is utilized in the methionine sulfoxide reduction system that occurs in most organisms. Methionine sulfoxide reductases (Msrs), MsrA and MsrB, are the enzymes responsible for this system. Msrs repair oxidatively damaged proteins, protect against oxidative stress, and regulate protein function, and have also been implicated in the aging process. Selenoprotein forms of Msrs containing selenocysteine (Sec) at the catalytic site are found in bacteria, algae, and animals. Recent Advances: A selenoprotein MsrB1 knockout mouse has been developed. Significant progress in the biochemistry of Msrs has been made, which includes findings of a novel reducing system for Msrs and of an interesting reason for the use of Sec in the Msr system. The effects of mammalian MsrBs, including selenoprotein MsrB1 on fruit fly aging, have been investigated. Furthermore, it is evident that Msrs are involved in methionine metabolism and regulation of the trans-sulfuration pathway. Critical Issues: This article presents recent progress in the Msr field while focusing on the physiological roles of mammalian Msrs, functions of selenoprotein forms of Msrs, and their biochemistry. Future Directions: A deeper understanding of the roles of Msrs in redox signaling, the aging process, and metabolism will be achieved. The identity of selenoproteome of Msrs will be sought along with characterization of the identified selenoprotein forms. Exploring new cellular targets and new functions of Msrs is also warranted. © 2013, Mary Ann Liebert, Inc.

Information Sciences | Year: 2012
Metadata about information sources (e.g., databases and repositories) can be collected by Query Sampling (QS). Such metadata can include topics and statistics (e.g., term frequencies) about the information sources. This provides important evidence for determining which sources in the distributed information space should be selected for a given user query. The aim of this paper is to find out the semantic relationships between the information sources in order to distribute user queries to a large number of sources. Thereby, we propose an evolutionary approach for automatically conducting QS using multiple crawlers and obtaining the optimized semantic network from the sources. The aim of combining QS and evolutionary methods is to collaboratively extract metadata about target sources and optimally integrate the metadata, respectively. For evaluating the performance of contextualized QS on 122 information sources, we have compared the ranking lists recommended by the proposed method with user feedback (i.e., ideal ranks), and also computed the precision of the discovered subsumptions in terms of the semantic relationships between the target sources. © 2011 Elsevier Inc.
