India has two pangolin species, Indian pangolin and Chinese pangolin. Both these species are highly exploited in wildlife trade, but I did not get any clear picture of how frequently in trade these two species of pangolins are used in India. I want to know this because, among these two species, Indian pangolin has much wider distribution in the country whereas Chinese pangolin has much restricted distribution only in the northeastern parts of India. Thus their exploitation level must not be the same in trade. Please put some light on this matter from your experience and knowledge.

Hi..
1- Can anyone use the procedure of a patent in his research work as it is, while it is not the major concern in his work? or he should develop it or modify it slightly? .. Otherwise, if it is not legal to use the patent procedure how can I use a procedure to something I do not have any reference to it?
2-If it is legal, then how can I cite a patent of a Chinese researcher?.. His name in Chinese!!

The research of criminal compliance in China mainly focuses on procedural law, but little attention is paid to substantive law. Existing researchers are accustomed to start from unit crime. Is there any other path besides this sector?
Relevant answer
Answer
In China, the local people's courts are divided into essential people's courts, intermediate people's courts, and higher people's courts. China has a cultural history of preferring informal methods, such as mediation, rather than formal dispute resolution methods. Despite the importance of informal methods in Chinese culture, law reformers have recently emphasized creating a formal legal system, including presenting a national legal aid program.

It is difficult to tell which lag structure would be appropriate without more information about the data you are using and the modeling choices you have made. But you may want to consider somewhat smaller lags for the instruments to avoid their proliferation (their number should not exceed the number of observations you have), and you may also check the validity of the instrument sets using the Sargan/Hansen tests.

Hello everybody.
Currently I'm working on Hard Ferrite Magnets. There are different grading systems, as American, Europe and Chinese. Chinese system is currently used more often. Two famous grading are Y30 and Y35. Their differences is in their magnetic properties. Does anybody knows difference in production process of these two grading? Or any other grading.
Is it because of different additives they have? Or different manufacturing method?
I would be thankful if anybody gives me information or datasheet regrading question
Relevant answer
Answer
I am not a specialist in this, but as far as I understand, classic grading is based on tabulated properties, which are reached with proprietary composition. different manufacturers can implement different balance of components, but on x-ray spectrogram they look more or less the same inside the same class.

Answer
In order to help you, we need to have much more detailed information on your research. "Semantic transparency in Chinese" is, at the same time, vague and complex. What do you mean by "semantic transparency" since semantics deal with language meaning, and in Chinese with the plural meaning of words? Sociolinguistics would be helpful if your research is cored on key Chinese words and dual characters systems, while experimental psychology seems far away from this approach.

I read an interesting paper (as below) and learnt that grassland habitat is continually declining in South China, largely due to reforestation schemes and vegetation succession (better hillfire control measures). Historically, grassland habitat shouldn't be that extensive in this region which likely supported fewer grassland specialists. However, the very long history of human settlement (more than 100,000 ya if we take Homo erectus into account) has favored the colonization of this group of species, including this rare Chinese Grassbird. In terms of habitat management, how should we address this apparent dilemma - to recover the ancient, original habitat of an area; OR, to actively maintain certain habitats to protect rare species, even such habitat is somewhat anthropogenically-created?
Relevant answer
Answer
The degradation of the ecosystem due to deforestation and the subsequent decades or centuries of crop cultivation is usually severe, making it almost impossible to bring the ecosystem back (by reforestation or revegetation) to its original state. Specifically, the massive decline in soil health due to soil degradation triggers the establishment of communities of plants, animals, and soil microorganisms greatly different from that of the original forest soil.

Chinese IR scholars insist on the fundamental differences between China and the world (particularly the West). Is this a Sinocentric bias or tenable position? why? thx!
Relevant answer
Answer
In my opinion, fundamental differences between the Chinese and Western approaches to knowledge of international relations existed several decades ago, to some extent even in the 1980s. However, these differences are now small and are constantly decreasing. Knowledge and technology are the main determinants of international competition of highly developed countries. Due to information, technological, economic, cultural, etc. globalization and growing competition, the above-mentioned differences in the approach to knowledge, its use in economic development, etc. are gradually decreasing. However, in the future the range of diversification in the economic effects of using knowledge and creating new technologies, new technological standards and innovations may increase.

Please I need explanation on how to determine the parameters (A, B, C, D, E, F, G) of the Chinese trunk track irregularity power spectral density function from experimental data using the nonlinear least square optimization of MATLAB.
Relevant answer
Answer
You can use nonlinear least-square only if you know the general structure of the spectral density function in advance. For example, consider you have "y" array as experimental data related to spectral density and u1, u2, and u3 as experimental data related to system inputs that you want to define y as a function of them (there is no limitation in the number of defined inputs). Also, consider your function is in the following form:
A + B*sin(C*u1) + D*(u2)^E + F*exp(G*u3)
So such a code can estimate your required parameters: (The "p" vector has seven elements because you have seven parameters to be estimated)
minres = @(p)( p(1) + p(2)*sin(p(3)*u1) + p(4)*(u2)^p(5) + p(6)*exp(p(7)*u3) - y ) ;
par0 = [1 1 1 1 1 1 1] ;
for i = 1 : 30
par = lsqnonlin(minres, par0) ;
par0(1:7) = par(1:7) ;
end
You can replace 1 values in the elements of par0 with any better starting points of estimation if you have. Increasing the number of iterations of "for" loop is effective for increasing the accuracy up to a particular limit for each estimation which can be reduced by choosing better starting point.

Dr. Gajniyarov,
First of all, thank you for getting involved in the discussion of this fascinating question. I see your points very well in both of your responses. And I also see that somewhere we have a resonance, but let us further elaborate on it.
Having said that, I would like to emphasize that not the type of problem to be sold is interesting for me, but the view of the people on the opportunity of "solving" (whatever it means) not fully deterministic (or non-deterministic) problems (whatever it means). At the time of posing the question I though of systelligence (partly implanted, partly acquired system intelligence) that makes smart-cyber-physical systems capable to achieve their working/operational/servicing objectives. Systeligence is a different genre for me, than AGI or ASI. Where we resonate is what is hiding behind your fist answer, but also partly behind the second one. Namely, current effort of AI research (as well as of cognitive engineering) is to reproduce some pattern manipulation capability of the human brain (or better to say, the human mind). The argumentation behind is simple - cognitive or whatever patterns can almost always be found. This applies independent of the fact if a pattern is strong or weak (like our mental models), or if it is concrete (as the mind images generated by sensing) or implicate (as generated by abstraction or illusion). It is also not making a big difference if the pattern is intended or not. Cognitive scientist have proven that our brain/mind tend to look for patterns in what we encounter. It uses some preferred patterns to recognize, describe, explain, predict or control some related phenomenon, as well as to create associations. This is a kind of innate of how we think, and the current trend, as I noted above, to carry it over to artificial constructs.
Coming back to my initial question, the issue is that how much we can reconstruct it and, more importantly, will AI be able to step over what has been identified as limitation for human being. I am doubtful, but open for any discourse. Why I am doubtful, or even sceptic? Easy to explain. In the simplest for it is about how to resolve the so-called multi-pattern-match situation. In both of the examples I mentioned this is what we are facing. There is no one concrete (ultimate) solution, and to get to any meaningful solution we need strong abstraction. In these and similar quizzes, deduction, induction, retrospection, or resembling other formal reasoning strategies (including probability or statistical significance will not work. Obviously, a computer system can use abduction, and may find the most probable answers, it however does not mean that it will be the absolute one. Furthermore, if the need for multi-step abstraction is present, then I guess we really have to reconsider everything. Some tasks or questions, like this presented ones, imply multiple, alternative, (undecidedly) equal solutions and answers, respectively. For the computer the issue is: (i) to find the relevant patters, (ii) to select the most relevant patterns in the context, (iii) rank the most patterns based on criteria other than just relevance (other semantics, constraints, intuition), and (iv) if it fails, do not hesitate to refer to Gödel's theory of undecidable.
So coming back to the original question: If there are undecidable logical (or whatever) problems for humans, what is the basis to assume that these problems will not be out there for (any kind of) artificial intelligence-enabled artificial cognitive systems as intractable?
Kind regards,
I.H.

The stock market here in the United States had a very bad week since the virus hit China. So far, Dow Jones dropped 4300 points this week which means billions of dollars loss. Also, many industry like flights, hotels, materials, goods, food ... etc are badly affected with the disease.

Relevant answer
Answer
Hi Collinx
While I need more detail on the nature of the data that you have, I suspect that you will also need a model of the local or national economy if you are to appropriately assess impacts. I have previously assessed FDI impacts using an Input-Output Model, but other models may suffice. The essential questions are about direct and indirect employment and incomes, allowing you to estimate a FDI multiplier. Let me know if I can help.

What's the practice of hypo#RT in chest wall+SCF in LABC?
I came across Chinese RCT published in Lancet oncol in Jan 2019.
They found hypo#RT non inferior to conventional RT to chest wall and SCF.
But i couldn't find any guidelines which suggests the same.
Please opine.
Relevant answer
Answer
There is some concern among practitioners on difference in sensitivity of skin of chest wall or of a reconstructed breast to moderate hypofractionation. Dr John Yarnold addresses this in his review article. He believes a look at hazard ratio of PRO for mastectomy patients in START A trial should negate this concern atlast for chest wall irradiation.

Hello everyone, I plan to do an EEG study and have to collect at least 40 stimuli (object) of AUT. So anyone who can recommend some references, or some one (who can have the AUT), or tell me where I can access the full version of the newly version of AUT? In addition, I have two questions:
1, If I can get help from outside and have obtained at least 40 AUT test, Should I do something on the AUT before I can employ them onto Chinese participants (culture difference?)?
2, If I myself look for objects to create AUT, what should I pay atention to? For example, should the heterogeneity of object be noted? I believe no one would agree if i use baskectball and football to delegate two kinds of objects. In contrast, football and iphone could be considered to use in the same study.
Relevant answer
Answer
Kirill Miroshnik Dear Kirill, Many thanks for your suggestions! very useful~
Firstly, I plan to collect AUTs scattered from previous literature, and select the common used objects in Chinese culture (objects specific to other culture will not be used). if 40 have been collected, that is enough, if not, I will search some other additional objects that commonly used in everyday life of Chinese people.
Secondly, to do an ERP study, all the 40 objects have to be used for each participant, I am sure of it.
Thirdly, I also learn the second paper you recommend. I try to access the 420 objects in the paper but receive no email reply. Anyway, this paper is very useful to tell me how to collect objects from everyday life.

This may look like an odd question, but since I'm latinamerican I'm not familiar with chinese names, the usual way to reference names is by writting the last name and the initial of the names, but for chinese names I dont know which one is the name and which one is the last name, can anyone tell me please??, and this is not a discriminatory post, it's a question I have had for long time.
Thank you

Answer
It's definitely challenging! Especially when the pin-yin of Chinese name can be both last/first name. As a Chinese, I may think about the following suggestions: Always double-check the person's full name.
There may be two easy ways:
  1. Some scholars, especially those in HK, would BOLD their last name (e.g., Yunyu XIAO), or use a hyphen for the first name (e.g., Xiao Yun-Yu). So you can directly tell from the paper.
  2. Another popular approach is seeking for the comma. For example, if I put "Xiao, Yunyu", you would know "Xiao" is my last name.
What if I did neither of the approaches, or it's not obvious in the searching index?
  • I would then suggest going to download the original Chinese paper from CNKI, then copy and paste the author's full name into any "Chinese to pin-yin" website, the first part of that pin-yin would be the last name.
Hope it's helpful. I can brainstorm other approaches..

Maybe the Chinese standard is subjected to copyright like most other standards. In that case it cannot be shared without the consent of the copyright owner.
Have you tried to get the standard via your library? Regarding translation you may try Google Translate.

Brief background: I’m examining mediation rates in China. I have a panel dataset with N=24 provinces and T=30 years (1985-2014). For each province-year, I observe mediation rates and host of economic/demographic information.
Anecdotal reports suggest that in 2006 or soon thereafter, the Chinese government began bolstering its mediation system and encouraging its use. My goal is to test this assertion. Unfortunately, I’m unable to quantify the “effort” the government exerts in promoting mediation and so I am considering testing for a structural break at 2006.
I can't figure out whether structural break tests are appropriate for my purpose. My understanding is that a structural break refers to a sudden change in the mean or variance of a variable. I'm not proposing that the mean or variance of mediation rates changes immediately at 2006, nor do I have reason to believe that the betas on my regressors change at 2006. Rather, my hypothesis is that beginning in 2006, mediation rates are set on a "new trajectory." For example, declining mediation rates before 2006 and rising rates after 2006 would be consistent with my hypothesis. In this case, means, variances, and betas before and after 2006 could be the same.
Will structural break tests address my hypothesis of a change in trajectory? I've looked at several papers but am having trouble answering this question on my own.
