    An Adaptive And Statistical Efficiency Myriad Filter For A Recursive Image Reconstruction Using a Multi-Frame SRR Algorithm With A Stochastic Regularization For Video Sequences 

    Vorapoj Patanavijit (2015)

    In real applied implementations, a collection of classical linear filtering theories, for example, a Median filter and a Mean filter, can be only applied to the Gaussian noise environments due to the fact that these linear filters usually gives the poor performance under the presence of non-Gaussian noise environments. Because of the motion estimation blunder and observation process error, which are usually caused from real electronic noise, non-accurate optical devices or mathematical simplification models of observed process systems, the ...

    Adaptive Membership Functions for Handover Decision System in Wireless Mobile Network 

    Thanachai Thumthawatworn (2016)

    Wireless mobile networks in the future are envisioned to demand more intelligent handover decision mechanisms to achieve seamless mobility and services. Fuzzy logic algorithms were proposed to enhance the handover decision process in recent years. However, most proposed algorithms deploy fixed fuzzy membership functions (FMFs). This approach gives an unsatisfactory network selection performance when different traffic types (service options) are required. In this work, we are proposing a new approach to handover decision system (HDS) design. ...

    Adaptive Two-stage Spectrum Sensing under Noise Uncertainty in Cognitive Radio Networks 

    Kornkamol Thakulsukannant; Wilaiporn Lee; Akara Prayote; Kanabadee Srisomboon (2016)

    To utilize licensed spectrum bands efficiently, spectrum sensing needs to be accurate and fast. The occurrence of noise uncertainty and the lower in received PU signal power due to the distance between the transmitter and the receiver, path loss, are the main challenges that has a great impact on the accuracy of spectrum sensing. In this paper, we propose a new scheme of two-stage spectrum sensing, “Adaptive Two-stage Spectrum Sensing (ATSS)”, under noise uncertainty environment. ATSS is a modified of a conventional two-stage spectrum sensing ...

    Alternative Modes of Export Entry for SMEs from Emerging Economies 

    Amonrat Thoumrungroje (2013)

    The primary purpose of this study is to investigate the specific issue of modes of export entry of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) that originate from emerging economies. Four theoretical frameworks on the process of internationalization (i.e. FDI, stage models, network perspective, and organizational capability perspective) are reviewed with respect to the internationalization of SMEs. Direct and indirect exporting are compared based on transaction cost analysis (TCA) and the network perspective. Problems arising from the use of extant ...

    An Analysis of Online Shopping in Thailand 

    Chanidapa Prompongsatorn; Nattapong Sakthong; Sirion Chaipoopirutana; Combs, Howard (2012)

    Trust is the most crucial factor for online shopping. Those organizations interested in enhancing their business channel with internet shopping need to understand the influence of consumers' trust, and how it depends on other independent variables. Additionally, they need to understand the cause of unreliability, how to eliminate it, and what functions have to be improved and maintained in order to attract consumers. This will allow organizations to understand the existing internet shopping environment and the consumers' decision to repurchase. ...

    An analysis of support goals: a perspective from support providers 

    Nuchada Dumrongsiri (2009)

    People need support from family and friends to cope with everyday stresses and crises. However, people do not always perceive support as helpful or appropriate. Whether support is viewed as helpful or hurtful may depend on the approach and goals preferred differently by people from different cultures. Giving advice is problematic and difficult for advice providers in the Western cultures because they encounter conflicting goals (Goldsmith, 1992). One goal is to provide helpful advice, whereas another goal is not to threaten advice recipients' ...

    "Ante et Retro Occulata": Looking Back and Looking Forward 

    Foley, Joseph A. (2014)

    This article briefly looks at what changes might occur linguistically with the widening of English within ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) while at the same time looking at the changes that have taken place in both the language and attitude in the history of English in its country of origin in terms of two forms of imperative: the cooperative and the territorial. In one case, the cooperative imperative is seen as a need to continually modify the language in order to communicate with people within new contexts and cultures. On the other, the ...

    Antibacterial activity of Chrysanthemum indicum, Centella asiatica and Andrographis paniculata on Bacillus cereus and Listeria monocytogenes under Low pH Stress 

    Patchanee Yasurin; Nateepat Pitinidhipat; Christina Vania Utami (2012)

    Classic food preservation methods do not guarantee to inhibit Bacillus cereus and Listeria monocytogenes growth. The application of natural antibacterial agent is an alternative way to control their growth. Asia herbs, Chrysanthemum indicum, Centella asiatica, and Andrographis paniculata were used in this experiment to test their antibacterial activity under low pH stress. Their antibacterial activities of 95% ethanolic crude extracts were tested on B. cereus and L. monocytogenes 10403S under different low pH stress by agar disc diffusion ...

    An Application of the Instructional Leadership Model at Schools in the Kachin Area of Myanmar 

    Seng, Khun; Nathara Mhunpiew (David Publishing Company, 2014)

    The model is created to develop instructional leadership with the purpose of promoting the quality of teaching and learning and students’ achievement at schools in the Kachin area of Myanmar. Therefore, a development of an instructional leadership model will be applied to prepare the Kachin students for the 21st century. Thus, five projects, namely: (a) motivation for teachers and students; (b) managing teaching and learning; (c) developing collaborative culture; (d) relationship with other countries and inside the country; and (e) professional ...

    Applying Active Listening Strategies in EFL: An Integrated Skill Approach 

    Sureepong Phothongsunan (2016)

    This paper addresses some active listening strategies which EFL learners can employ to facilitate, monitor and evaluate their own English listening skills. Listening today is classified as an interpretive process. The role of the listener as an active partaker in the listening process is thus emphasized. The paper sheds light on the impact that active listening may have on students’ overall language output, academic success, and enhanced performance on listening assessments with relevant, practical examples.
