ABSTRACT Both stunting and overweight are present in children across China. Seemingly paradoxical, these two conditions can also coexist in the same child. The aim was to examine the associations between dietary food/nutrient intake and plasma lipid profiles related to stunting and overweight status.
The 2002 China National Nutrition and Health Survey was a family-based nationally representative cross-sectional study.
Thirty-one provinces, autonomous regions and municipalities.
The study included 13,770 children aged 2-17 years. The sample size for the four exposure groups was 10,814 for children of normal height and weight, 2128 for stunted, 729 for overweight and 99 for stunted overweight.
Compared with children of normal height and weight, stunted and stunted overweight children consumed more high-energy-dense foods with a lower dietary diversity score, less protein, polyunsaturated fat and Fe, and a higher molar ratio of phytate to Ca. On the contrary, overweight children tended to consume significantly less carbohydrates and more protein and fat. Overall, stunted overweight children consumed lower amounts of vegetables, fruit, white meat (poultry and fish) and more milk. The OR for prevalent dyslipidaemia were 1·32 (95% CI 1·13, 1·53), 1·76 (95% CI 1·48, 2·09) and 2·59 (95% CI 1·65, 4·07) among stunted, overweight and stunted overweight children, respectively, compared with children of normal height and weight. In addition, being overweight was significantly associated with high glucose concentrations, whereas stunting was significantly associated with having anaemia.
Limited dietary diversity and intake of high-energy-dense foods were notably observed among stunted overweight children. Furthermore, being stunted and/or overweight was associated with an increased likelihood of unhealthy lipid profiles.

    ABSTRACT: Keystroke dynamics is an important biometric branch for person authentication. Based upon keystroke dynamics, this paper designs an embedded password protection device, develops an online system, collects two public databases for promoting the research on keystroke authentication, exploits transformation methods to characterize keystroke dynamics, and provides benchmark results of several popular classification algorithms, one-class support vector machine, Gaussian classifier, and nearest neighbor classifier.

    ABSTRACT: One of the major considerations in the automotive industry is the reduction of hybrid electric vehicle fuel consumption and operation cost. This paper is the first to use the nondominated sorting genetic algorithm-II (NSGA-II) for power-split plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) applications. The NSGA-II, one of the most efficient multiobjective genetic algorithms (MOGAs), simultaneously optimized operation cost, including gasoline and electricity consumption. The Pareto optimal solutions are discussed for the parameter calibrations of the rule-based control strategy as a useful guide in PHEV development, particularly in the earlier phases. The optimized operation cost at the different power-split device (PSD) gear ratios is used to determine the ideal PSD gear ratio to further minimize the operation cost. To validate the proposed strategy, dynamic PSD and powertrain models of PHEV are developed in the numerical analysis. The two typically different driving cycles, namely, the Urban Dynamometer Driving Schedule (UDDS) and the Highway Fuel Economic Drive Schedule (HWFET), with different numbers of driving cycles, are used for control strategy optimization.
