Questions related to Fashion
Hi, I need this paper to observe a subject on fashion through history. Does anybody has a full text of this paper from the journal Tekstil, vol 60 number 10 pages 518-to 521 ?
The apparel value chain has shifted from the west to east around two decades ago. From mass production to mass consumption, the east suffers it all. Best Practices from the west do not work much in the east as the east needs economic development throughout the value chain. Thoughts?
Hi everyone, I am a master student at Erasmus University of Rotterdam and I am currently researching the topic of sustainability in the fashion industry and transparency in its communication tactics. I am looking for respondents for my research! I would really appreciate it if you can fill in the survey below and help me graduate! The survey is completely anonymous and confidential, and it takes you around 5 minutes to complete.
Link for the questionnaire:
Thank you in advance!!
Hope you are fine.
What do you know about cyber fashion?
Will it be a new way for ensuring sustainability in the fashion industry?
How long it will be sustainable? Is it short-term or long-term?
If possible, share your opinion.
does anyone know how to correct Delauney criterion violations in a FEFLOW mesh in an automatic fashion? And how to automatically perform the equilateralization of triangles after Delauney criterion violation's corrections? #
The typical harmonic or morse potential for modeling bonds model energy levels in a continuous fashion. Are there any molecular/bond models that recreate intermolecular collisions in such a way that energy exchange between the translational and vibrational levels happens as per the laws of quantum mechanics?
I already asked this question on July 6, 2015 but I got no answer, so I repeat it.
Let us take a rubber (or plastic) pipe that discharges water into the atmosphere.
If we squeeze the pipe wall on two opposite sides a couple of diameters ahead of its free end, but without closing it (i.e., in principle by letting the flow free to go), an instability phenomenon will occur.
At the squeezed site, the water pressure goes under the atmospheric one (because afterwards the cross section increases), so the pipe tends to close up and no flow occurs. But then, the pressure before the squeezed site builts up (because no flow is occurring) and the flow starts up again. This behaviour turns out to be recurring.
Therefore, the flow at the pipe exit keeps pulsating in an unsteady fashion.
I wonder if anyone studied this phenomenon.
Recently, a fashion developed to post preprints on RG or other web media.
As a reminder preprints are manuscripts, thus submitted research that did not underwent the reviewing process.
This is a way of sharing research faster would say some. Indeed, we are unfortunately living in an accelerating world, and science does not stay alongside the road.
However, I see here some reasons to doubt about the possible benefits of posting preprints:
· The benevolent work of the associated Editors and Reviewers is somewhat non-respected, denigrated. It is already sometimes difficult to find some reviewers, and such lack of consideration may lead to really loose the interest for reviewing.
· Ideas or findings in preprints are spread away from their initial scientific domains. For geology (my domain), this may not be a critical problem. But for the medical domain, and overall nowadays, spreading non-quality checked ideas/concepts/results may have some consequences. If the manuscript is rejected, then only the authors are really aware. But the diffusion of the ideas/concepts/results that are rejected is done. This can lead to serious issues.
· There is a risk of plagiarism-related problems. As illustrated by a case raised in a question here on RG, ideas/concepts/results are shared with a community. The manuscript can be rejected or necessitate significant revisions, and then during this period, others may have time to re-bake the ideas/concepts/results of the initial preprint and publish them faster somewhere else. A game of “table tennis prosecution for plagiarism” may then start.
Meetings, conferences are the places to introduce some advances, some “half-baked” ideas (as would have said R. Bathurst), and they should continue to play this role. I think we should let the peer-review process to do its job, but I may be wrong.
Ideas, comments, all welcome!
I am doing ligation of the padlock probe. The efficiency is pretty good (more than 90%). But I have a very simple question about this process.
As shown in the following figure, in normal ligation process of a padlock probe, a single padlock probe is circularized by ligase. But according to simple math, events like two padlock probes are ligated in a head-to-tail fashion should also happen.
So I just wander, why the ligation process does not go on according to the theoretical probability, but insteand, prefer a intramolecular circularization reaction?
I know how to get the data of one company from this database, but I don't know how to search for a particular industry from the Compustat database?
For example, if I want to get a GAP company's data, I just need to enter the company code and the required variables. But if I want to get access to all of the fashion companies in this database, this method would not work.
Firstly, I am not sure how many fashion-related companies are in this database.
Besides, I can't search for them one by one, it's time-consuming and some fashion companies' codes are missing.
So is there a relevant Stata program to remotely download the data from the database, as I need to process this data in Stata later? Or is there another easy way to download data for a particular industry?
Many thanks in advance!!
I have just entered the doctoral program in Arts and Design at UNAM (México), and it would help me a lot to have more sources of information to carry out my research and thesis related to Fashion Films. I would thank you a lot.
In order to test classification with deep learning CNN architectures, what are the different variations of MNIST datasets available. Like there is MNIST, Fashion MNIST, 3D MNIST, etc.
What are the different variations of MNIST datasets available ?
If you're doing kinase activity assays the old fashion way with radioactive labelled ATP and peptide substrate you might use P81 cation exchange chromatography paper to capture the peptide. Whatman, now GE Healtcare has stopped the production and I can't find anywhere to buy this P81 paper anymore. I figure that if everybody who is in need of this product contacts GE Healthcare and ask them to start production again, we might get them to do it. So please help.

I am exploring potential chemical based approaches for cell cycle synchronization and would like to hear from anyone with experience on this technique what they believe to be the most applicable approach with respect to ease of use, reproducibly, cost, etc. An ideal technique would be one that is easily reversed allowing for dissection of multiple stages in a synchronized fashion..
I made Sunflower crosses in line x tester fashion. i calculated mid parent , better parent and standard heterosis. Now i want to test the significance of heterosis for which i need a software
The world has been changing fast and taking new strides in almost every field, however, the ecosystem of journal publications is still the same old fashioned. As a consequence the high quality research is not timely published and this losings its relevance.
I am looking for sotware(s) that can allow anyone to visualize process models & sub-processes, allowing to share them in a collaborative way . It can be a mix of tools that can be combined to provide an intuitive platform to work within a kind of process framework management system.
Maybe remark of article alternative.
I wrote a few years ago article (in Slovak) trying to adapt the rebound effect (RE) analysed very often in the energy and material field on the marketing decision process.
I am recently working on a survey aiming to find if there could be a benefit for fast fashion (FF) producers to participate actively in second-hand markets, swap, upcycling, and other alternative fashion processes.
Looking at FF impact on the market seems to me as a very traditional RE. If the rebound principle is included in the textile and fashion purchase decision, "sustainability" education will fail their goals massively.
The question is how to prove the RE impact of FF offer? I can imagine using statistical data by traditional market (1970) and new market (2000) with change analysis in the different price range. As a citizen of the post-communist country, I have no relevant data about pre FF markets.
Are there other alternatives how to prove the rebound effect by customer decision about clothes and textile purchase?
Sound it interesting?
I am currently working on my dissertation about fashion, and the difficulty that many transgender women find while searching for comfortable clothing during their coming out and transitioning period.
I need to collect data from my survey questionnaire available at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/6Y6DV57.
I am not having much luck with respondents.
Does anyone have any ideas as to where else I could post it? Currently it is on Redditt, Facebook.
Time is running out fast!
Thank you and kind regards.
This happened to me 3 times, with me or my supervisors involved in the same paper. I feel frustrated and the feeling to start over again from the scratch is overwhelming. Normally, we submit it, then the reviewers who have labs with more technology and are able to redo our experiments in a more "elegant fashion" reject it and redo it. We made it once with human cells, they used animal cells. The one without "specific reasons for rejection" just happened last week... When I looked at pubmed to update our data after 1 month writing and submitting, there were 29 papers with the same theme, that did not exist when we started submitting it.
If this happened to you too, what did you do to overcome it? Is it very common in nowadays science?
I couldn't find Uni-dimensional scales to measure ethical consumption in luxury fashion brands. Kindly recommend or suggest any reference having such items or scales.
I would like to know if anyone knows clothes used for emancipation like Bloomers, or people who fought for women freedom like Flappers!
the formula to calculate the number of individuals given the initial population size is:
Nₜ = rᵗN₀
where Nₜ is the number of individuals at time t, N₀ is the initial number of individuals and r is the net reproductive rate. For bacteria, I reckon I can change it to:
Nₜ = μᵗN₀
where μ is the specific growth rate of a given bacterium. For Escherichia coli, I have found a value of 0.72. Now, bacteria are modeled to grow in a logistic fashion, thus I need to introduce the term 1-N/K where K is the carrying capacity of the environment. Hence, I need to convert these equations in equivalents containing the logistic term. I have found the Verhulst equation:
Nₜ₊₁ = μNₜ(1-Nₜ/K)
and the Ricker's curve:
Nₜ₊₁ = Nₜexp[μ(1-Nₜ/K)]
but these calculate the increase at the next time interval, e.g. from the beginning of the experiment to 1 hour after. However, these do not contain the term t that allows me to calculate the population expansion at any given time, for instance 24 hours after the beginning of the experiment. My questions are:
- how can I convert Nₜ = μᵗN₀ to an equation containing the logistic term?
- how can I solve the Ricker's curve for Nₜ?
Started my dissertation on this topic & chose Zaha Hadid as a key guiding me to start. As she collaborated with many Fashion brands during her period of time while she was working on architectural projects.
Fast fashion is being widely criticized either due to environmental or human rights issues and is having a negative impact on the world. Mass production generates tons of waste, has a great environmental impact and affects the poor working conditions of many people.
The sharing economy model argues that renting is better than owning (cars, vacation homes or even clothes). This system is taking over different markets and one of them is fashion.
Would you be willing to use a virtual platform to exchange, donate or buy the clothes that you and other people have stored in the closet and that you no longer use?
What would be your attitude to make exchanges: altruistic, economic or ensure sustainability by extending the useful life of clothes that no longer use?
I am in search of those who are familiar with the French & European societies at the end of 1700s to join me in writing a book as my co-authors.
The book is on Marie Antoinette. Looking at her from different angles (psychoanalysis, her effects today on different parts of the world, queen of fashion and endless many more).
My 1st chapter which is researched historic non-fiction biography is almost finished. I want others to add chapters to the book> Chapters will be published under your names.
Academic knowledge of English is a must, French is helpful. Knowing the history of France in 1700s is a must.
Recently, the Aymara intellectual Silvia Rivera Cusicanquí (Bolivia), has pointed out that "the decolonial is a fashion, the postcolonial a desire and the anti-colonial a struggle." Through this, she posits that in the face of the exhausted epistemological horizon of Eurocentric modernity there is a renewed interest in the knowledge that emerges in the context of the struggles for decolonization, however, there is no real political commitment on the part of scientists. The author points out: "the decolonial is a very recent fashion that, in some way, usufructs and reinterprets those processes of struggle, but I think it depoliticizes them, since the decolonial is a state or a situation but it is not an activity, it does not imply an agency, nor a conscious participation. I put the anti-colonial struggle into practice in fact, in some way, delegitimizing all forms of objectification and ornamental use of what is indigenous by the State. All of these are processes of symbolic colonization. "
I am interested in hearing and reading critical opinions about the decolonial turn in academic fashion. My question arises from some observations:
a) Epistemological violence in the social sciences that is claimed to be decolonial continues to be exercised from the Eurocentric "epistemological ratio". Where Latin America becomes a simple field of study. And where those of us who reflect from within the struggles for decolonization are erased from the map of knowledge production, since our texts are not referenced or academic extractivism is simply generated stealing local knowledge, exercising new forms of "indigenous folklorization".
b) The main references of decolonial thought are located in universities in hegemonic countries. The intellectual activists of Latin America who have a conscious ethic and struggle with social movements are excluded from the circuits of intellectual debate.
c) An important fracture of decolonial studies occurs in the defense of the Nation State and the progressive left governments of Latin America, such as Evo Morales and Maduro, and a rejection of radical left or indigenous proposals that are raised from anti-state perspectives , libertarian and autonomous.
d) The depoliticization and lack of ethics of many researchers who claim to be decolonial, who through practices of academic extractivism seek to scrutinize indigenous knowledge, have been financed with multi-million dollar research projects, financed by companies and state research corporations (Por example mitzubichi corporation), and whose impacts have contributed nothing to the struggles of those who dispute the territory.
I work primarily within the fashion sector. A major problem facing many of my clients at the moment is the impact of the Coronavirus enforced measures, as bricks and mortar retail stores temporarily close on a global basis. There are also interruptions within the international supply chain, but the potential of burgeoning opportunities within e-commerce, via domestic and international distributors.
Whilst securing the safety of workers is paramount, mitigating the risk of economic paralysis is also important, and we are considering what measures can be taken to enhance e-commerce sales and the international digital market, and collating statistics and qualitative research to this effect.
HR usually faces fashions like engagement, performance appraisals, home office, etc. After the pandemics of COVID-19, that will change our premises, process, and beliefs, looking five years ahead, in your opinion, what will be the next HR fashion?
I have developed the conceptual framework referring to previous literature. My research is about omnichannel marketing of fashion retail industry. Would there be any guide on developing a questionnaire that I can refer to?
With the COVID-19 pandemic, the face mask is having its hour in the spotlight. Designers are making fashion masks; painters are creating one-of-a-kind mask masterpieces; companies are ‘masking’ their logos.
For hexahedral meshing, it is quite simple to divide one edge in a particular number of division. But for tetrahedral meshing it is not that simple. If we are using a complicated domain for aerodynamic flow and if it is difficult for doing the hexahedral meshing, then how to divide the edge in element in that fashion and what thing must be kept in mind while doing the grid convergence study.
Every women seeks to be vivid and charm,
standards are changing as we speak. What was considered perfect-looking and gorgeous 10 years ago is totally different now. Each year some new feature comes up that makes women tweak their appearance just a little bit to match the new trend. Yet lately there’s been a positive shift towards natural beauty in fashion industry. This means less pressure on ladies to look skinny and bony both on catwalks and in real life. More plus models are appearing in fashion magazines and shops, reminding everyone of the diversity of female body shapes and personalities. As for India, one of its main beauty standards has always been a voluptuous woman, whose curves were a sign of health, wealth, and prosperity. This, too, changed with the fashion trends coming from the East, and now curvaceous Indian women are slowly taking back their positions both in real life and in fashion industry. Here are top 7 Indian plus models that look simply stunning.so are there new rules to make womens more happy and charm?
looking at the current literature I found different ways to define not resident cardiac macrophages that are found at different time points after myocardial infarction (MI).
While somebody in 2020 still uses the "old fashion" M1/M2 definition (M1 inflammatory in the first days after MI and M2 reparative after 5-7 days after MI), in other articles authors claim that this is not correct nowadays, but without proposing a consensus alternative.
In line with the foregoing, which is the correct definition to use in a scientific article?
Thanks to everybody who will help me with this intricate topic.
I am trying to calculate the electrostatic potential surface of a 3D polymer model for which I can calculate the point charges of each bead. Is there any tool to produce such a surface, more or less in the fashion of atomistic protein models?
Hi, I am looking for a list of questionnaire items (for Likert scale) in order to measuring "consumer's attitude towards luxury" like what (DUBOIS et al, 2005) employed, to develop my own specifically for fashion and apparel industry.
It seems to be time-consuming to check each paper in the field! Do you know A publication "containing" such items?
I worked in the procurement profession for > 10 years. Recently I have read nearly 1/2 dozen trade articles which described of cancelled thousands fashion/textile orders. Is this caused by geopolitics events, healthcare activities and/or potential recession? I am interested in global opinions.
1. I am processing my umbrella sampling simulations using the Weighted Histogram Analysis Method in Gromacs (gmx wham). However, I would like to report the mean dG and a standard deviation. To do this I plan on using bsProfs.xvg, which contains all 100 bootstrapping profiles (i.e. used the flag -nBootstrap 100), to derive a mean dG and a standard deviation. However, I do not wish to manually estimate the dG by inspecting the well depth of each individual profile. Is there an automated script available to do this?
2. Additionally, for greatest accuracy of the error estimate, do I need to run replicas of all umbrella sampling windows or is it sufficient to run these once, provided that the histograms are sufficiently overlapping?
Thanks so much in advance!
EDIT: I have now prepared a script to calculate mean dG and stdev (part 1.) but still I require an answer to part 2. re the requirement for replicas.
Every time we turn on the television we see anti wrinkle creams, diets, fashion shows with models with impossible bodies, hair treatments, and that, little by little, is installed in our brain. They do not show us the reality: that wrinkles at a certain age are inevitable, that when we grow we get stretch marks and cellulite, that we have one breast bigger than another, that women can be as bare as men ...
And then we try to resemble those ideals that have sold us massively, and instead of seeing strangers those bodies passed by hundreds of advisors and operations, we see ours as rare.
How dangerous it is to spend more hours in front of the TV, than on the street, you don't know how much they can deceive us
The signifcant contribution of fashion industry to (micro)plastic pollution is well known. Therefore, I was wondering if there was any sort of regulated control on the raw materials used for manufacturing clothes, with particular regard to testing required?
I am currently working on my graduate project about transparent CSR communication, and are looking for people who is willing to contribute to a survey about the topic. You do not need to work or be a researcher within fashion, it could be any sector. Your participation will be anonymously and kept strictly confidential. If you are interested, please click the link: https://forms.gle/XzXUNyA4EEj8cGXr5
Thank you in advance!
As the fashion industry has started to realise how important corporate responsibility towards the environment and society is, the communication of the responsible business initiatives and the promotion of responsible products becomes crucial. However, the communication has often been labelled to be greenwashing which creates distrust among consumers and other stakeholders. How can brands and companies in the fashion industry improve CSR communication to avoid claims of Greenwashing?
We recently had a tech that passed through who ordered Q5 for her mutagenesis PCRs. She clearly had things working because she created 10-20 constructs that I checked the sequences for. However, she is no longer here, there's a ton of Q5 left, and her notebook is quite vague. I've only used Phusion for mutagenesis, and cannot seem to get the Q5 to work in a similar fashion. I see that the kits sold by NEB include a KLD enzyme kit, but I don't think she was using that, or at least I can't find it anywhere. Our tech is trying to use the Q5 but getting no colonies after incubation with DpnI and transformation. The primers are complimentary with the desired mutation. Is there something that I'm missing?
How are coding and data entered in a wtihin-subjects fashion for a theory of planned behaviour based questionnaire using indirect measures of the constructs.
I am also kindly requesting for expert reviewers for a TPB based instrument. Please indicate interest. thanks
Sharing economy is a term for a way of distributing goods and services, a way that differs from the traditional model of corporations hiring employees and selling products to consumers. In the sharing economy, individuals are said to rent or "share" things like their cars, homes and personal time to other individuals in a peer-to-peer fashion. one of the best example of shared economy is Uber Technologies Inc. So, My question is "how can we prepare the financial statements of like these companies? is there any accounting standard to deal with them?"
Specifically, peer pressure is typically viewed as the influence a social group has on a person's attitudes, values and behavior. Influenced 'peers' allow themselves to feel 'pressured' in order to be accepted and/or valued by the group they want to belong to.
Consequently, a person might do something they wouldn't normally or otherwise do - they might (for example) adopt and/or change their behavior so as to conform to the dominant group or follow the most prevalent and fashionable views.
It isn't difficult to see how peer review might run counter to the avowed ethos of academia - which puts a premium on independent and critical thought. Academics appear to be just as susceptible to peer pressure as traditional high risk groups (like children or teenagers).
It is important, of course, that academics follow norms so as to meet exacting standards for scholarship - but the peer review process threatens to normalize social conformity and/or sanction confirmation biases in the pursuit of truth.
So, to what extent - or in what ways - does peer pressure influence your own research or thinking?
an amusing video - don't let it influence your response!
I would see some circular morphology previously, but after poly -l-lysine treatment, I am seeing, a little dendritic fashion, one guess is that they might be contamination, but I do not see a turbid media or colour change of sorts. Under the microscope they appear dendritic, as well as clumped in some places. Predominantly, ISE6 (Ixodes scapularis Embryonic) (Ixodes scapularis- deer tick)cells have a neuronal phenotype, but In my lab, no one saw the dendritic morphology before.
Hello! I am a student from Russia. Now i am working on my thesis on factor that affect income of models in fashion industry. It seems as you research experience on celebrity question somehow intercepts with my topic. So i am looking for theoretical justification of such factors (height, weight, followers in social networks, portfolio quality etc.)
A well-crafted strategic plan of an organization shows the destination where it wants to find itself sometime in the foreseeable future. Without having such a plan, normally an organization is believed to move nowhere, virtually resembles to a ship that sails without a captain. Understanding these, many organizations develop strategic plans YET lots of limitations in terms of measuring intended results, or in terms of stating strategic themes in measurable fashion. Efforts are seen in literature, for instance about 'objectives' in strategic plans should be SMART (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Time-bounded). For me, being SMART is necessary but not adequate; so for years (especially in my management lectures) I suggest objectives to be a kind of SMARTER (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, Time-bounded, Extending (Evolving), and Rewarding). However, in my understanding, still the question of 'Strategic Measurement' is not satisfactorily answered. Any better approach, framework or tool other than Balanced Scorecard to deal with measurements in Strategic Management in the context of institutions?
I am assisting in a research project on sustainability in Fashion Design. Specifically, in relation to fashion design practices, fashion curricula and teaching practices at tertiary institutions. For instance, do tertiary institutions teach sustainable fashion design practices to drive sustainable fashion design. This could be in relation to the environmental impact, ethical sourcing, changes in curricula to accommodate this line of thinking. The research may not necessarily be linked to sustainable fashion design, but related industries such as textiles, procurement etc. which I can review as possible source material.
If anyone can suggest reading of previous research, papers, studies etc in relation to any of these concepts, even conceptually, that may assist, I would be most grateful.
Thank you in advance.
Without active membership in an academic community, it is challenging to learn about opportunities to contribute articles or chapters to edited volumes. Are there proven ways to hear about these projects in a timely fashion?
I was wondering about PCA in GNU/Octave; is there any documants or website where I can read about the procedure to calculate PCA in Octave?
In particular, my analysis should take into account the effect of chemicals on biological samples, so my matrix is usually arranged in a NxK fashion, with N, biological sample, K effect of chemicals.
Please share with us the nearest Call for Papers any international conference with theme of sustainable fashion and apparel design?
Properties of specific nanos, materials, in- & organic substances, DNAs, RNAs are exactly similar. But why & how the natural creations of a same species are unlike in design, fashion, graphics? and unique? Who & what is behind it? Pheno & genotyping? Where's the lab? Researcher?
In March 2019 I posted on this web site a paper of four and a half pages describing how the expansion of the verse was directly linked to the passage of time. This depended on the assumption that the universe was bounded and finite, with a singular spherical edge expanding outwards as a sphere. If a further assumption was made that this singular this outer edge was travelling at light velocity so that every electromagnetic wave action created within the universe were to be caused to duplicate its motion, then here would be a simple explanation for the transmission of all EM action within.
Furthermore this would also present a very simple diagrammatic explanation for the special theory of relativity. Whereas a spherical bounded and finite universe is not currently fashionable, it is easy to visualise and also one of the alternative models included within the FLRW metric first proposed by Friedman, and then later endorsed by Lemaitre., Robertson and Walker to describe the universe.
Has anybody proposed a similar basis for the mediation of light speed hitherto connected with the shape of the universe, or indeed any basis at all ?
So I am attempting to recreate a crystallization condition from a published structure. I have set up a 24-well screen that reproduces the published condition and makes very small adjustments to the concentrations of precipitant, buffer, salt, and pH. I started with a very similar concentration of protein (13.5 mg/ml vs. 14 mg/ml) and have been keeping it at a similar temperature (~ 20°C). Our ultimate goal is to produce a co-crystal structure by soaking method with a small peptide, however, when I setup the trays it was very clear that in all of the conditions my protein precipitated almost immediately. I should also note that for each condition I varied the ratio of protein:mother liquor in a 1:3, 2:2, and 3:1 fashion.
Would this indicate that my starting protein concentration is too high, or that there is some other parameter I need to play with. I thought recreating published crystallization conditions would be easier, however, I am not clear on what direction I should take next.
I was wondering about the computation and interpretation of interaction terms of continuous variables that are used in a multiple regression.
Normally, one would mean-center (or z-standardize) the two constituent continuous variables and then multiply these values to create the interaction term. Then all three variables (continuous variable A, continuous variable B, and the interaction term AxB) can be used as regressors in a multiple regression.
However, I am a bit confused regarding negative values in the continuous variables (that result for instance from mean-centering/z-standardization). If one has only positive values, then two high positive values in both A and B would result in a high value in AxB (e.g., 10 x 10 = 100), and lower values in A and B would result in very small values in AxB (e.g., 0.2 x 0.2 = 0.04). This would result in a regressor where low values in the interaction regressor indicate low values of both continuous variables, and high values indicate high values of both.
BUT: With negative values, this relationship appears to change fundamentally. Let's say we have now two low values of both continous variables that are negative, then the interaction term would be a high positive value (e.g., -10 x -10 = 100). But this has the same value as both values in the positive domain (e.g., 10 x 10 = 100). Shouldn't they get different weights in order to differentiate effects of high/high vs. low/low? In the same fashion, high/low and low/high receive equal weights (e.g. -10 x 10 = -100; 10 x -10 = -100) and cannot be differentiated. That confuses me a lot. Or do I miss something here?
I am conducting a survey on the importance of corporate social responsibility in fast-fashion industry (focusing on Zara). Would it be possible to reach more reliable responds here ? Worth trying.

I will be working on a image processing project. So, I wanted to know if there could be any way to convert an image dataset to a format similar to fashion mnist dataset? I think it can help me with the process of clothing segmentation. Thank you.
I am interested in writing a data monetization paper focused on Smart Elevators. During the last few years I have discovered that much of our work is more interesting to the business community.
Dear community, please help me and suggest applicable publication focused on smart technologies. Note, my overall focus are smart cities but our research is segmented across numerous business and technology disciplines.
Thanks in advance, John
I have a questionnaire f over 140 questions...already grouped according to differenti areas. It has already been used in other countries. Questions are in Likert scale fashion.
I want to know what tests to use if I want to :
1) get one score from a group of questions about the same thing so I get a percentage
2) find correlations between two scores (which I would have gotten by getting a separata score for each one of the group)The two scores will result from Likert Scale type questions.
3)find correlations between a score achieved from a Likert Scale question and gender
4) find correlations between a score achieved from Likert Scale question and region.
A BIg Thank you
Could you please suggest useful papers that could help me in designing and starting a project to explore customer perceptions, attitudes and behaviours concerning ’ethical fashion’ (sustainable fashion, fashion with a conscious, etc)?
like if I am developing a scale related to apparel and fashion clothes in Egypt, I must conduct the questionnaire in the Mother language (Arabic) or in other language (English as generally accepted language) or make it bi language (Arabic and English together)
Hi! I am currently in the process of creating a thesis topic and I'm kind of lost as to what theories I can use. I am majoring communication
Could you suggest some surface activation markers which are upregulated in T cells after activation (CD3/CD28) in a NFAT independent fashion?
Thanks a lot for your help,
I am researching random number generation techniques, and would like to find a neural network or other machine learning software, that is able to track the sequences that my software generates, in such a fashion that after accepting some number of symbols from a sequence, is thereafter able to predict the next sequence from my generator. Might you have access to such software, or might you know of another researcher who works in this area? If so, please, help me to gain access to such quality neural network or machine learning software. Thank you.
I’m currently working on an exciting project about Influencer marketing for luxury fashion brands. I still need some help to fill out my questionnaire. I would appreciate it, if you find time to go through it – doesn’t take long, promise!

I have a corpus of documents in English language. Each document is labelled sentence-wise with labels associated with the domain
I have another corpus with the same documents in another language.
I want to label the non-English corpus in an unsupervised fashion according to the labels of the English corpus.
There is the possibility that one sentence in English may correspond to multiple sentences in another language or vice-versa.
In this case, all the sentences that are the translation of a single original sentence will have the same label of the original sentence.
What would it be the best approach? Which are relevant work with similar setting that I should study?
