I found that, latches can capable to hold the correct data even the data changes slightly before the falling edge of the clock.
Relevant answer
Answer
Denis' answer is correct. Sequential cells can have negative hold properties. This is counterintuitive at first (we tend to think of hold as time after a clock edge, not before an edge), but it is entirely possible and does not cause any problems.
This is not the same as having a negative hold timing during Static Timing Analysis of a full design, which would for sure be a problem.

What is the major difference between the pre-layout and post-layout simulation?
Relevant answer
Answer
Generally the main difference is the difference in performance of the circuit. However it depends on the circuit you care about. In some cases parasitic resistance is much more important than cap i.e. the voltage drop across power line is dominant over degraded GBW because it may jeopardize the proper operation of the circuit. Also in some cases parasitics act for your favor i.e. current mirrors and the parasitic capacitance on the gates acts like decap.

Looking to study the culture of an academic campus and its impact on the performance of faculty.
Relevant answer
Answer
I think measuring impact generally should proceed from how the researcher wishes to define performance. Impact of anything, so to say, on a corporate entity's performance of can always be viewed from the points of: (financial indicators), profitability, return on investment, return on asset, sales or turn over growth. Other areas could be market share, resilience, industrial harmony, corporate image corporate social responsibility perception, and what not. The identification of the performance index or indices will determine the theoretical framework to adopt. The theoretical framework explains the transmission mechanism that links corporate cultural attributes to the chosen measure of performance and should therefore influence the types of data to be ferreted or sought. It must however be noted that corporate culture is rather nembulous with many possible and sometimes conflicting connotations. What this means is that the researcher may also need to identify his/her cultural contend.

Hi all, I am looking for some general feedback and information from those that have experience using handheld/portable systems? I am looking at the prospects of using an off the shelf system from the likes of Bruker/Agilent/B&WTek/Anton Paar. I have formed a list of systems but wanted to hear some real-world experience in terms of use/ease of measurement/data transfer and anything else useful. Many thanks in advance.
Relevant answer
Answer
Hi Liam Kelleher , I´m also interested on these Raman devices, and I had done some tests, mainly to study their capabilities in combination with SERS substrates. At the moment I have tested the Bruker and B&WTeek systems, with bad results (no signal or very low one at best). The Anton Paar spectrometer is being used by Isabel Pastoriza's group at Vigo University, they have a EU project and Anton Paar is a industrial partner. They also deal with SERS sensors in combination with that handheld raman. The project involves the detection of toxic gases, so the challenge is big.
All these systems are mainly designed to deal with raw materials in factories. They also have an use identifiying chemicals in pharmaceutical preparations or for drug identification in customs. The good thing is that they can perform the analysis without removing the sample from the container, making it easy and fast the process. They rely on normal Raman signal excited by a red or IR laser in all the cases I have seen at least (632nm or 1064 diode lasers). Most of them, for instance Bruker and Anton-Paar include a library of standards, which is clearly useful. All of them include some adapter head to hold a spectroscopy cell or a vial. The B&Wtek include a fiber optics guide that finish in a handheld head that allows to reach tiny or very localized areas. This head includes a lens with 10mm focal distance that is encased in a stainless steel tube so that you just have to place the tube in contact with the sample and the focal distance is there. Many groups working with art or conservation of artworks use this equipment successfully. The one I tried was the I-Raman Plus, it is a portable device, but still quite bulky, thought the fiber optics guide lets you bring the laser light and detection to the areas of interest easily. This device needs a laptop to visualize the spectra, new versions include a screen that simplifies the things.
Handheld instruments that show the spectra are more useful, from my point of view, but most of them require a external device to visualize the data.
About the issues with SERS substrates, I think the main problem is the lack of control of the focal distance and the lack of microscope objectives to focus the laser and collect the Raman signal (the Numerical Aperture). Focusing would be difficult when you have to hold the instrument with your hands, so using objectives would be useless unless you can keep the instrument stable (mecanically holded). Note that my SERS substrates are solid structures, and the problems refered could be avoided when you deal with plasmonic nanoparticles in solution, where the place you focus your beam is not so relevant.
Hope it helps.

Question

I am currently working on a project (Correlation Between the Time of ADHD Diagnosis and Performance) for my principles of research course and I am having trouble locating/ accessing a document that mentions or lists the questions/criteria used to assess their patients.
In my research, I would be using a modified version, as I only need this scale to give an empirical definition to the word performance.
The origin of the PSP comes from Morosini et al. Development, reliability and acceptability of a new version of the DSM‐IV Social and Occupational Functioning Assessment Scale (SOFAS) to assess routine social funtioning.
I am unsure if they include the observation criteria within their research, as the journal is hidden behind a paywall.
I have a survey already created: https://forms.gle/bssi9tTYntYm58oA8 though, it will not be completed until I am able to add in the criteria for assessing the participants performance levels.
I would appreciate any feedback on my survey, tips on how to effectively collect this data and proceed with this research, and of course any links to the original testing criteria. If none are available, I would also appreciate anyone who would be able to help me come up with efficient questions that would assess a persons performance.
Thank you!
Edit: I have found the questions that I need and have completed the survey. Thank you all for your help and feedback.
Relevant answer
The PSP is a 100–point single‐item rating scale, subdivided into 10 equal intervals. The ratings are based mainly on the assessment of patient's functioning in four main areas: 1) socially useful activities; 2) personal and social relationships; 3) self‐care; and 4) disturbing and aggressive behaviours. Operational criteria to rate the levels of disabilities have been defined for the above‐mentioned areas. Excellent inter‐rater reliability was also obtained in less educated workers.

I do recommend to take into consideration AI methods. More specifically machine learning methods like k-NN --- stands for k nearest neighbors --- might bring deeper insight into your problematic.
What I recommend is to study similar problems already resolved by this method and similar ML methods and try to understand the way of implementation into your specific problem.
The best way to tackle the problem is to use Python and relevant libraries that already contain all necessary ML methods. When you are novel in the field, try to find someone around you who us familiar with Python programming. He/she can speed up your learning curve substantially.
Some review papers on this topic would be an excellent start.

Relevant answer
Answer
Dear Colleagues and Friends from RG,
I propose to add to this discussion considerations on the following important issue:
Crowdfounding as a form of financing innovative, technological startups.
For the purposes of analyzing the issues of the dominant forms of financing innovative, technological startups, I formulated the following thesis that crowdfounding is now becoming one of the forms of financing innovative, technological startups. In order to verify the above research thesis, I propose to continue discussions in the field of financing innovative, technological startups and in answering the following question:
Is crowdfounding becoming a popular form of financing innovative, technological startups?
Below are particularly important determinants of financing innovative and technological startups. The conclusions of this discussion in key aspects of the discussed issues confirm the formulated research thesis. To the above discussion I would like to add the following conclusion formulated as a summary of my previous considerations on the topic: Dominant forms of financing innovative, technological startups.
In recent years, more and more often, innovative and technological startups have been using new forms of crowdfunding, equity, crowdfounding and other forms of financing available via the Internet for innovative investment projects with high investment risk. Due to the high level of investment risk and difficulties in assessing technological and product innovation etc., a significant number of banks avoid financing innovative, technological startups. Commercial lenders, including lending banks, usually do not provide 100% financing. capital necessary to implement a specific business venture, because in this financing formula the lender or lender bears the full and very high credit and / or investment risk. However, there are financial or para-financial institutions, loan funds, subsidies from state public funds, the so-called business angels that grant loans sometimes as much as 100% financing business ventures. This way, among other things, certain types of innovative, technological startups that have high development potential are financed. These types of financing for innovative, technological startups are burdened with a high level of investment risk that the investor accepts in full.
In the following years, the development of internet and financial innovations can be significantly determined by the use of blockchain technology in the field of improving data transfer security systems on the Internet. Blockchain technology can also be used to secure online settlements and social payments, including financing innovative projects, new ventures developed by technological startups, and financing the development of open innovations through e.g. crowdfunding. Perhaps in the online accounts will also be used in the future critical critics. Perhaps in the future cryptocurrencies will be displacing traditional currency from online financial transactions between fintechs, financial institutions, innovative startups, online technology companies operating social media portals and their clients, and between users of these portals. The development of all of the above-mentioned ICT information technologies, advanced data processing technologies Industry 4.0 and technologies facilitating financial operations on the Internet and ensuring a high level of security of internet data transfer. The development of technological innovations, ICT information technologies, advanced information processing technologies co-creating the current technological revolution Industry 4.0, financing through crowdfunding, securing online transactions with blockchain technology, increasing the use of cryptocurrencies in these settlements, etc. These can be important determinants of the development of innovative, technological startups operating on the Internet and factors of development of the knowledge-based economy in subsequent years.
Some technology companies operating in the field of ICT and new online media are also planning to develop blockchain technology in cryptocurrency applications. For example, the social media Facebook site also announced the creation of its own critical currency called Libra, which users of the portal will be able to pay for various services available through Facebook. Some investment funds invest their financial capital in some cryptocurrencies. Another issue determining the development of open innovations that are used on the Internet are technologies typical of the current technological revolution, Industry 4.0. The current technological revolution referred to as Industry 4.0 is determined by the development of the following advanced information processing technologies, which include, among others: Big Data database technologies, cloud computing, machine learning, Internet of Things, artificial intelligence, Business Intelligence and other advanced data processing technologies Data Mining. The technologies of advanced information processing listed above are finding more and more applications in various fields of industry, production of goods and provision of services.
The number of industries, branches of economic activity and sectors of the national economy is growing, in which advanced information processing technologies typical of the current fourth technological revolution known as Industry 4.0 are used. ICT information technologies and advanced information processing technologies co-creating the current technological revolution Industry 4.0 have in recent years been a key factor in the emergence of new technological innovations and other applications applicable in various branches of the national economy. These innovations are becoming the main factor in the development of innovative startups and technology companies operating on the Internet. In macroeconomic terms, on the other hand, these technological and other innovations are an important factor in the development of modern knowledge-based economies and may have a significant impact on the economic growth rate of a developed and developing economy. I described these issues in my publications, which are available on the Research Gate portal. I invite you to scientific cooperation.
In my opinion, startups developing innovative business ventures based on innovative technologies or innovative products, services, innovative logistics, etc. are financed through crowdfounding and other forms of social external financing of investment projects available on the Internet. For this type of investment projects it is difficult to obtain financing from banks in the form of traditional loan, credit and para-credit instruments. Most banks have not yet developed multifactorial models of analysis and precise measurement of credit risk for this type of innovative investment projects planned for implementation by startups characterized by a high level of innovation, low fixed capital and a short history of functioning on the markets.
Often, emerging startups develop innovative technologies and / or products, services offered, etc. Then there is the risk of innovation. Due to the high level of risk, it is difficult for startups to find banks that would be willing to credit the implementation of a planned innovative business venture. Specialized investment funds deal with external financing of innovative startups. In addition, more and more often, innovative, technological startups use new forms of crowdfunding, equity, crowdfounding and other forms of financing available via the Internet for innovative investment projects with high investment risk. Investment funds financing the development of innovative startups implement an investment policy taking into account the bankruptcy statistics of newly established startups. Well, they choose startups with high business growth potential and high prognosis for successful implementation of an innovative business venture.
For example, they choose 10 startups to finance their development, assuming that at least half of these 10 startups will fail within 2 years of their creation, 2 or 3 startups will survive this period and will operate for at least several years but with poor business results and only 1 startup will achieve great success, high level of growth and after a few years the investment fund will be able to sell shares in this startup with high profit. In connection with the above, the key issue is to improve models for estimating the risk of bankruptcy of newly created startups and to develop the state's economic policy supporting the development of innovation, including creating conditions for the development of innovative startups. This is particularly important in knowledge-based economies where innovation and entrepreneurship are an important production factor.
In line with the above, in my opinion crowdfounding is now becoming one of the forms of financing innovative, technological startups.
Best wishes.

Hello
There have been many articles on psychological traits in the organization, and almost all of them have emphasized the effect that personality traits have on the performance of the organization. But in practice some organizations ignore or even disrespect the personality traits of employees. What do you think is the solution to pay more attention to the personality of the employees and thus improve the performance of the organizations?
Relevant answer
Answer
In the trait activation theory, if tasks activate personnality traits with situational cues, than it means that work environement fit the worker's personality. For exemple, if you want to activate conscientiousness trait than the task must have caracteristics relevant for this specific trait (like a task that demands discipline or order). When task and personality are a fit than the individual will feel more useful and relevent to the work place, and he will perform better.

However, we must combine both Business Intelligence that collects data from the past and Business Analytics that allows us to build a clearer vision of the future. In any case, both tools can be complemented to develop a detailed analysis of the business and future of a company in order to make better decisions.

First, please, read attached article, which compare accuracy of different methods under different imbalanced Data Sets. The methods are Random Undersampling, Random Oversampling, Cluster-based Oversampling, SMOTE, etc. On the important conclusions, that SMOTE hasn't better accuracy, you really can use more simple method !
Second, question for you : How do you perform Cross-Validation and Test Data Set Evaluation ? There ate two possibilities:
1. To use SMOTE (or some other method - e.,g., Random Oversampling) for FULL Learning Data Set. In this case during Cross-Validation each time both current Training DS and current Validation DS will be essentially differ from original. So, obtained CV estimations will not be correct.
2. During Cross-Validation for Validation Set to use part of the original (without SMOTE using) data set. In this case your CV estimations will be correct.

I need to know if the number of hidden layers effect the performance and accuracy of a neural network, in other words does the increasing in the number of hidden layers of a neural network increase the accuracy but decrease the performance or there is no rule for that? Thanks in advanced
Relevant answer
Answer
Theory says that with only one hidden layer you can approximate any continuous function in a compact domain (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Universal_approximation_theorem). So you could use only one layer and try more and more layer and you will see the accuracy will improve on your training data, but you have to keep the number of parameters (thus the number of neurons) as lower as possible to have a good generalization and good performance on validation data. For non compact domain I believe that you have to add another hidden layer. Then in theory 2 hidden layers are enough for any problem. Therefore more than 3 hidden layers will not be trained properly with classical learning algorithms (such as Backpropagation). These considerations are valid only for multi-layer perceptron network.

I want to test whether the performance of this participant over a series of trials is better or equal to chance.

I also want to give confidence intervals for this value.
Any references to papers discussing different possibilities are very appreciated.
Relevant answer
Answer
Jochen, what you are describing sounds appropriate for comparing two observed proportions. But the way I read it, 1/10 is the expected proportion according to a null hypothesis. If one was going to perform a test rather than compute a CI, I think it would be a binomial test, with H0 specifying that Pi = 0.1. Using Stata's -bitesti- command, I get this result for the 60/100 example that was given (copy to text editor and view with fixed font to make the output align properly):
. bitesti 100 60 0.1
N Observed k Expected k Assumed p Observed p
------------------------------------------------------------
100 60 10 0.10000 0.60000
Pr(k >= 60) = 0.000000 (one-sided test)
Pr(k <= 60) = 1.000000 (one-sided test)
Pr(k >= 60) = 0.000000 (two-sided test)
note: lower tail of two-sided p-value is empty

The sun angle is too low. But it's an interesting question, though one with a lot of variables to allow for when trying to give a firm answer.

what is the importance of Interest income to total assets ratio of a banking company in analyzing its performance?
thanks in advance
Relevant answer
Answer
Dear Srikanth
Normally the higher this ratio the better indicating the bank is earning a high interest rate or the proportion of interest earning assets (loans) to total assets is high or both of these effects. Too high of interest income to total assets ratio would be attributed to the high interest income (rate) derived from high risk loans (subject to default). Also, if the high interest income is being generated by too high a proportion of assets in loans that could stem from lack of liquidity. That is, the bank should have a reasonable amount of cash and cash like securities (easily converted to cash such as Treasury bills) as part of their total assets to meet withdrawal needs. If the interest income to total assets ratio is too low that usually is from earning low interest income (rate) and/or too little lending.

The assessment of faculty teaching performance is normally based on student course evaluations. However, easy grading and not a very demanding instructors produce high student course evaluations. Are there other mechanisms and factors that you would recommend to better assess the quality of instructions?
Relevant answer
Answer
Dear respected Colleague
Achieving good evaluation survey response rates may be difficult and can be driven by many influences. Numerous studies have evaluated what factors impact student response rates on course and faculty evaluations . The best approach to evaluation is participatory, learning-oriented, and is timely and relevant to the work. This approach extends to those the foundation wishes to serve, whose voices, needs, and perspectives inform the work.

Please provide me with details regarding handling of software for gamry instrument required in order to perform a galvanostatic charge-discharge experiment
Relevant answer
Answer
James, probably best to send a private message if you want more help with this, but the standard chronopot lets you specify those voltage limits and there isn't any particular trick to play to run it. If you want to repeat that then you would be better off using either the cyclic charge discharge script (if you have the 1000A or 1000E) or looping the chronopot experiment in the Sequence Wizard.

Are there some limitations to maximum inhibition percentage to even start with kinetic study...

I agree with Dominique, but I will add that if the maximal inhibition of 20% is really due to insolubility of the compound, then you may reach the wrong conclusion about what it does.

What variable can explain succusseful divestiture, other than financial performance? Thanks for helping.
Relevant answer
Answer
There are a number of literature that addresses organisational learning. These are usually focused on post acquisition integration (for the buyer) or the portfolio reorganisation post divestment. The actual deal making revolves around deal structuring  and the formulation of a deal strategy, once the firm has decided to divest certain assets. The question managers usually faced at this point is whether to outsource the task of divesting to investment banks (given their perceived expertise and experience), or in major firms like Royal Dutch Shell, part of this skill and learning is embedded within commercial finance and strategy functionally, and in the business units. For larger deals, it is a combination of in-house and external resources.
For your research, you may consider doing a case study instead. The lessons you could gain would be more substantive than running correlations or regressions.

 If effort is to be graded, how do we measure it objectively and fairly?
Relevant answer
Answer
Vicente, Any grading of performance is a combination of ability + effort + efficacy. I think measuring 'effort' independently is very difficult. I don't believe it serves the lecturer/professor any great value..but is useful to help students understand their own behaviours in seeking improvement. As Ian said measuring improvement is another option. This is useful for developing efficacy early in an educational course but I am not sure of its value at university, where at some point in time a result for absolute performance is needed. My personal feeling is that both performance and improvement should be graded and effort should be at least considered for each student to develop a notion of personal control over one's future behaviours. For this to work effectively, students need clear counselling of the purpose of each measure and what they can do with it. I have been isolating a measure of effort for lower secondary school students for years and found it to be difficult to be accurate, but useful for counselling.

Most of the invitro studies were performed on dengue virus serotype 2. Why this serotype is given more importance than the others?
Relevant answer
Answer
Hi Krishna Raja Muthuraman,
I am currently working with DENV, I will just share some of my thoughts. 
1. Since I am working in Singapore, local context is one of the reasons. DENV1 and DENV2 are the two major serotypes circulating in Singapore for the past ten years. The major circulating strain has switched from DENV1 to DENV2 since 2006. DENV3 is occasionally found, DENV4 is rare in Singapore. I am not very sure about other regions or country. 
2. It seems like DENV2 is the serotype that can well grow in mice compare to others. For the past few years, most of the animal model only using DENV2 as it can give viremia or other readouts. Only until recent years I think is 2016, the community has reported a DENV3 and DENV4 clinical isolate that can cause clinical manifestations and replicate well in immunocompromised mice. 
3. This is my personal guess, it might be because the marketed vaccine Dengvaxia has lower protective efficacy in DENV1 and DENV2 serotype, that is why more efforts have been invested in studying DENV2. 
Let me know if I said something wrong or illogical.

I am planning to perform a double ligation, with a vector that has one overhang for BsmBI and one for BamHI. One insert has 2 BamHI overhangs, and the other one has a BamHI and BsmBI overhang. Thus the insert with 2 BamHI overhangs can be integrated in 2 different manners, decreasing the efficiency. Can anyone give me advice about what molar ratios to use?
Relevant answer
Answer
Hi Valerie, as you wrote in the title this is really tricky to do in one step. In my experience the decrease of efficiency is not due on the possible inverse insertion of the BamHI-BamHI fragment, but the  that ligating 3 fragments together at the same time. It might take a couple of days more but if you have the possibility divide the approach into two steps instead of the double ligation you will most likely succeed:
1) ligate the BsmBI-BamHI fragment first, transform this first, screen colonies for insertion and for certain reassurance you can perform dna sequencing.
2) digest this intermediate construct with BamHI and dephosphorylate the overhangs, and ligate now the BamHI/BamHI fragment into this. As you stated this fragment can be either ligated in the desired or the reverse/complement way, you should be able to screen colonies with a mixed pair of plasmid/fragment specific primers.
good luck!
