Question

Hey everyone, I am working on my thesis about personalized advertisements and have all my data ready for analysis. However, I have this technical question among others.
I am using a between-subjects experimental design with the use of 2 vignettes based on a hypothetical scenario. Each responder is randomly assigned to either one of the two vignettes:
Vignette 1: A highly-personalized ad with three personalization features
Vignette 2: A low-personalized ad with just one personalization feature
After the ad, the responder is called to answer the manipulation question of whether he perceived the ad as personalized or not. I did not use multiple items to test that, I wanted to assess perceived personalization with just one item. Basically, I want to show that in the first vignette, most people perceived the ad as personalized. What Stata command can I use?
Thanks in advance:)
Relevant answer
Answer
Sofia Goniadou To execute all the commands in your do file sequentially in Stata, click the "Execute (do)" icon in the Do-file Editor window's toolbar. Alternatively, in the Do-file Editor box, select Tools, then Execute (do).
*, on the other hand, is used to duplicate a string 0 or more times. Stata detects whether * denotes multiplication or string duplication based on the context. Stata multiplies two numeric values if * exists between them. Stata repeats the string as many times as the numeric value suggests when * occurs between a string and a numeric value.

Students should evaluate the aesthetics (e.g. "this room is beautiful") of a working space / room and what they think would be their performance (e.g. "I'm very productive in this room") in this room, based on a picture (which they see in a survey).
How to measure the subjective aesthetics and the subjective performance (of a Person) in it?
Which are the relevant and up to date publications and thoughts on the topic?
Best,
Simon
Relevant answer
Answer
Hi Simon, you are pursuing a very exciting question. I'm not quite clear what exactly you mean by: measuring a subjective aesthetic of a workspace or the subjective performance of a person in a space? Are you concerned with an intraphsyciic evaluation or an intersubjective measurement?
Interesting could be perhaps the concept of interconnection and fusion of sensory perception in space. This can be explicated with the term (Media) Synaesthetics.
Media Synaesthetics is concerned with both theoretically reflected and fictionalized synaesthesia, with intermodal constellations, inclusions and disjunctions of the senses. Perceptual theories of aisthesis and (syn-)aesthetics have been stimulated to reformulate their concepts and terms precisely through their engagement with the arts and art forms. The artistic imagination, the creative imagination, has always used synaesthetic dispositions by using the media of technical images and sounds, but also the 'old' media of writing, painting and stage performance for a synaesthetic ars combinatoria.
The concept of media synaesthetics is designed to mark the medial couplings of the senses, that is: contours of a physiological media aesthetics. It is therefore no coincidence that the focus of the volume is on the orders of the visible, in particular the interrelations of image and sound - as a contribution to the "image anthropology" (Hans Belting), which is currently being elaborated on an interdisciplinary basis.

I got an average case/person mean score of 1.8 logits based on the Rasch Analysis of a polytomous data. I would like to report this in a percentage form to provide the readers with a plain understanding of the level of implementation of a case. Do I just interpret this as most agreed or endorsed average score of the sample as it is greater than 0.0 logits? or Do I interpret in logistic regression that the odds of a case exposure is 1.8 times greater than its baseline exposure?
Could Rasch experts help me interpret the logits score in percentages, please?
Relevant answer
Answer
The most important third step is failing.
Suppose you have n scores x_i (i=1...n) expressed on a logit scale. These can be transformed to probabilities P(x_1) via steps (1) and (2). See previous answer.
These probabilities P(x_1) may also be interpreted as percentages p_i on a standard percentage scale from 0 to 1 (multiply by 100 if you want to express those decimal numbers in the form N%).
There is also a simple formula for the mean of several logit scores, again expressed - as you were asking - as a percentage on the standard percentage scale. There are two versions for this mean: unweighted mean, or weighted mean.
Here is the procedure to calculate the unweighted mean :
  • calculate the geometric mean over all p_i ; call it P
  • calculate the geometric mean over all (1 - p_i) ; call it Q
  • calculate P / ( P + Q); this is the unweighted mean
Here is the procedure to calculate the weighted mean (w_i is the i-th weight):
  • calculate the geometric mean over all p_i ^ w_i ; call it P
  • calculate the geometric mean over all (1 - p_i) ^ w_i ; call it Q
  • calculate P / ( P + Q); this is the weighted mean
Further details may be found in my publications.

Synthetic sex dolls are presently sold on global scale to replace human commercial sex workers in brothels, where the dolls can be used by multiple users. Can the use of these products increase the prevalence of STDs? Because, the dolls could be used by multiple users, serving as fomite for indirect transmission of STDs from an infected inanimate object to a susceptible person. Are the synthetic sex dolls safe at all?
Relevant answer
Answer
It could be possible if the dolls are not strelized after use. Neisseria gonorrhoae is one. Although, nonsexual transmission of gonorrhoea seems to be extremely rare. Only one case of nonsexual transmission of genital Neisseria gonorrhoeae is documented in adults', involving two patients in a military hospital who shared a urinal. N. gonorrhoeae has been shown to survive in infected secretions on towels and handkerchiefs for 20 and 24 hours, respectively.

There are some experiments where larger plot size (may be with less precision) is required for one set of treatments, e.g. irrigation (needs large area for buffer channels if done in RBD) and tillage experiments. Here nutrient or weed management or may be some other factors which requires more precision are kept in sub-plots. The same experiment we can conduct in RBD but it will require more resources and extra efforts. For ease in experimentation, in such experiments we need split plot design.

I am working on my PhD dissertation and would like to interview persons with reverse mentoring experience within an organization - either as a younger (Millennial) mentor or an older (Baby Boomer or Gen X) mentee.
Relevant answer
Answer
Do they role-play? i.e., Do they pretend that the mentor is the student and the student is the mentor, so that they can see things from a newer, perhaps more open perspective?
I think that depends of the IQ of the student and the mentor!
In some cases, students are much more intelligent (and in some cases knowledgeable) than their professors. This can be due to the high intelligence / knowledge of the student and/or the low intelligence and knowledge of the professor (that is a shame for a professor to be in this category I know, but lets face it, many professors don't even know the basics of research, many of them even don't know or even don't care about their student's thesis)! There are many predatory professors who pray on the work of their students; they even don't know the details of their theses. My own mentor didn't know anything at all about my thesis, so when he was going to lecture it at a congress, he called me and asked me to go to his office and teach him what is the thesis subject and how should he lecture it.
But if everything is alright and the professor is highly intelligent and knowledgeable, and also cares about the progress of the thesis and is actively involved in the project, I don't see any point or merit in this "reverse mentoring" thing, with the student attempting to teach anything to the professor. That would be a waste of time and resources, and would introduce a lot of ridiculous discussions and fractions to the procedure.

  • If a person carries a blood group A resists disease, more than the person that carries a blood group B carries.
  • A blood type (also called a blood group) is a classification of blood based on the presence and absence of antibodies and also based on the presence or absence of inherited antigenic substances on the surface of red blood cells (RBCs). These antigens may be proteins, carbohydrates, glycoproteins, or glycolipids, depending on the blood group system. Some of these antigens are also present on the surface of other types of cells of various tissues. Several of these red blood cell surface antigens can stem from one allele (or an alternative version of a gene) and collectively form a blood group system. Blood types are inherited and represent contributions from both parents. A total of 35 human blood group systems are now recognized by the International Society of Blood Transfusion (ISBT). The two most important ones are ABO and the RhD antigen; they determine someone's blood type (A, B, AB and O, with +, − or Null denoting RhD status).
Relevant answer
Answer
Dear Dr. Ali F Almehemdi
Blood types help us to fight diseases and tell us what major disease epidemics a given population suffered in its recent history, (e.g. in the last thousand years). For example, most native Americans belong to group O. It is believed that this is due to a syphilis epidemic and that the O type were better at fighting off the disease. Group A and B make people more resistant to cholera, while AB confers the most resistance. O offers virtually no immunity against cholera. B confers weaker protection against plague. This is probably why B is more common in North-East Europe, which was virtually unaffected by the Black Death during the Middle Ages.
A-type carriers are the most likely to survive plague, but suffer from a higher rate of heart disease, because their blood is more likely to clot. They are also at increased risk of contracting smallpox and developing cancer of the esophagus, pancreas, and stomach. Type O, contrarily to A, is slightly protective against cardiovascular problems. It also boosts resistance against tuberculosis, but increases the risk of venous thromboembolism and developing duodenal and peptic ulcers. It also attracts more mosquitoes (through which malaria is transmitted). A recent study revealed that people with type O blood are less likely to get pancreatic cancer, but also stomach, breast, ovarian and cervical cancer.
The ABO blood group system isn't the only antigen system found in humans. There are about 30 human blood type systems: Rhesus, Kell, Diego, Duffy, Kidd, and so on. Each have a role in immunity. Some are found only in some specific populations and completely absent elsewhere. This is the case of Diego antigens, found only (at low frequency) among Mongolic people and Amerindians.

I want to take a deeper look at the facial expressions of people with profound intellectual and multiple disabilities (PIMD) to analyse their emotional expressions.
For this purpose, I am searching for a ready-to-use software, which combines image processing (e.g., OpenPose, OpenFace) and machine learning. In addition, I would prefer a software that is free (i.e., Open Source) or at least for non-commercial research purposes.
So, I am not looking for methods, but for ready-to-use software, which includes a feature to train my own models. The reason is that every person with PIMD shows very unique behaviour signals and, therefore, you need one model for each emotion of a person.
Finally, I do not need a GUI or visualization, a simple command line application would enough.
A hint would be very helpful.
Relevant answer
Answer
I do not know if there is a "ready-made" software available for this, but my collaborators at University of Basel, GRAVIS group in the Department of mathematics and informatics have been working on facial recognition software.
Their project that comes close to what you seek is "Social judgement of faces" lead by Sandro Schönborn.
You can visit their webpage here:
The software they use - scalismo - is opensource.

I am going to conduct a survey in two different geographical areas. I cannot do interviews as my research and the measure of my themes needs asking many questions for the participants. my supervisor said it is either i conduct survey for at least 300 persons (as it is a PhD ) or you analyse your survey using qualitative methods? Actually I am confused how can we analyse survey data using qualitative analysis?
Relevant answer
Answer
Was this 300 the result of (5-10) times the number of items of the questionnaire you used? I am not sure whether the 300 comes from, but 40 is too small for a survey like your study, as this may reduce the power of your study. Also, if you plan to recruit 40 persons from two areas, what kinds of person you are going to recruit? Those with better socio-economic states and a wide social network or the opposite ones? Do you intend to match the characteristics of persons from the two areas? Additionally, for using qualitative analysis to measure a survey data, there is a method called content analysis which has both qualitative and quantitative methodology (Krippendorff, K.(2004). Content analysis:anintroductiontoitsmethodology. Thousand Oaks,California:SagePublicationsInc) for your consideration. But better to confirm with your supervisor. Good luck on your study.

Hi Curtis,
Currently I have measured functioning of the raphe nuclei in smokers vs. non-smokers, while also relating this function to features of tobacco use disorder such as withdrawal.
However, this project also aims to examine serotonin function in smokers using Positron Emission Tomography (5HT1A and 5HT2C receptor availability), whilst also linking this availability with the emotional and cognitive deficits observed in smokers.
Finally, this project also aims to determine the effects of serotonergic manipulations (such as acute tryptophan depletion) and serotonergic pharmacotherapies (such as lorcaserin and vilazodone) on those emotional and cognitive deficits that hinder smoking cessation.
If you have any more questions, please just let me know.

I have heard of several research groups who were unsatisfied with Elsevier approaches in obser authors rights and different puishing policies. Even some groups joined the boycott movements of Elsevie. I have not joined such movements as I did not believe such accusations. Recently, I personally faced such unfair policy. I do not want to judge on personal experience. I would like to hear similar opinions of the researchers. Any similar experiences?
Relevant answer
Answer
Unless you pay an open access fee, Elsevier holds the copyright to your paper if you publish with them. Unless the work was funded by a group (Welcome Trust, NIH) that requires open access after a year, the paper remains behind a pay wall. Elsevier does give the author an electronic copy to use in filling requests for the paper BUT does not allow the author to post that copy or a working paper equivalent on the web. That's the traditional publishing model and there is nothing unfair about it. They are a business, not a charity. If they publish your article at no charge to you, they have to recover the publication cost from readers. Incidentally, most university libraries buy a subscription that provides access to all Elsevier journals and they have special access arrangements for researchers in low-income countries.

If you are required to or choose to make a diagnosis, how do you choose which diagnostic system to use?
If you are a psychiatrist or a psychologist, I am seeking your participation in a survey about your preferred methods for diagnosing personality disorders. This survey is also relevant to those who you do not formally diagnose personality disorders, because I am also keen to know what other approaches to personality are used.
Both the DSM and ICD are moving towards a dimensional conceptualisation of personality disorders. ICD-11 proposes a fully dimensional model for diagnosing personality disorders that does not use the categorical labels of ICD-10. However, in DSM-5, the categorical DSM-IV model was retained with a new model also included as an alternative. This potentially creates a dilemma for practitioners as to which to use or whether to find alternatives for diagnosing personality pathology.
Please consider participating in this survey exploring your choice of diagnostic systems for personality disorders. We recommend using a computer to complete the survey.
Responses are anonymous. If you have any queries about the survey, or wish to access the results of the survey please contact:
Lisa Dawson – lbdawson@our.ecu.edu.au.
Or Greg Dear – g.dear@ecu.edu.au

Can you tell me how is it used to show personal differences?
Relevant answer
Answer
I think there are a lot of potential answers to your question, based on the context of why you asked it in the first place. Audio forensics use software to compare voices to a database of millions of voices to measure the likelihood of a recorded voice being a specific person. See https://www.livescience.com/19506-audio-forensics-reveals-voices-secrets.html
In the realm of performance, actors rely on a range of vocal quality features in order to “transform” to sound different from the way they usually do. For example, they might add qualities such as “nasality” or “denasality” or “orality” to change the nature of their voice. They may implement greater “twang”, which is related to the higher frequencies (aka “the singer’s formant” which was first described by Sundberg) Uta was describing. Though they may adopt linguistic features, by changing their accent or modifying their lexicon, voice quality is at a deeper level. Other qualities include breathiness, harshness, brightness/dullness, etc. These are primarily subjective terms for the resonance qualities that Uta was discussing, that are shaped by the speaker’s vocal mechanism (anatomy) and how the speaker uses it.

Hi dear colleagues,
Which one is the most difficult: research and teaching or your role as parent? The real background of this question is to explore the possibility of the good control of professional life as a professor or researcher at university as well as personal life as a parent. Some people give a great attention to one of the roles and overly exaggerated but neglect the second.
How to respect both roles together?
Kind regards
Relevant answer
Answer
In my opinion, the Father is also a teacher, and I think his role is harder than that of the researcher or teacher (as a career). A researcher may, for example, have poor research results. So, he will correct his track or make recommendations to others to take a different track. This will benefit the community. However, if the results of the father's role are bad, it will be harmful to the society and its mistake is difficult to rectify.

We are able to assign the traffic into the network using traffic counts based on stochastic user equilibrium traffic assignment method and estimate the O-D matrix.
The question is, how can we split this matrix between the modes of travel used, if the traffic counts include modes (the volume of each mode)?
Or, how can we use the traffic counts to estimate the O-D matrix in term of person and not vehicle. How much person will travel between O-D? the logit model can be utilized then to split the matrix.
Relevant answer
Answer
The best method is to develop the OD matrix for each mode traffic count. In other words, input the passenger cars traffic count for each link into VISUM to get the passenger car OD matrix. Repeat the same method for other vehicle type.
Another approximate method is to get the average traffic composition for the whole study area (for instance 65% pc, 10% bus, 15% truck, 10% others). then multiply each of these percentage by the total OD matrix to get each of the vehicle type matrix.

Regards
Ijaz
Relevant answer
Answer
In more than 95% cases, it is difficult to identify a single cause and is generally considered multifactorial. Apart from obesity, metabolic syndrome, diet and sedentary lifestyle, genetic factors are very important contributing factors in essential hypertension. Salt sensitivity is very often inherited and runs in families. Among the secondary causes, renal parenchymal disease is the most important factor. Renovascular disease and endocrine etiologies are less often observed. ABPM has identified obstructive sleep apnea syndrome as a major contributing factor in some patients with resistant hypertension. Chronic alcohol intake, several drugs and psychological factors can also lead to hypertension.

I have qualitative data which is collected through interviewing, and there are 10 interviewees only, i'm so confused and worrying about which method of analysis is suitable. Can anybody tell me which method of analysis should i use?
Relevant answer
Answer
What thoughts did you have prior to interviening about what analysis to perform? Usually one has a plan for the resarch which includes both the method for data collection and for analysis since the choices sometimes are connected an mutually dependant on each other. In Grounded theory for example, data is often collected and analysed alternately. Phenomenlology and hermeneutics both often implies a special way of interviewing making it hard to applie the method only for the data analysis.
Narrative analysis on the other hand requires the interview data to consist of a narrative to be able to be analysed with a narrartive analysis.
If you did not plan for the analysis of yuor data before collecting them maybe content analysis could be a good choice. With contnent analysis you analyse the content in written material (or other meaningful matter). For content analysis I recommende the following reference:
Krippendorff, K. Content analysis : an introduction to its methodology (3rd ed.). Thousand Oaks, California: SAGE; 2013.

I would like to read a paper that relates a person who has not yet begun an adventure with an effective or causal orientation
Relevant answer
Answer
I have not, but I would say that my latest qualitative research on the phenomenology of learning definitely supports many of the basic features of an entrepreneurial orientation, which appears to be the conceptual counterpart of an effectual orientation. From my work on learning, it is the partnership orientation of an effectual orientation that is primary in the pupil's experience, along with the various aspects of entrepreneurship. Four of the five aspects of effectual orientation (i.e., means orientation, affordable loss orientation, contingencies orientation, and control orientation) relate to secondary supports of the pedagogical relation, which is not to demean them. However, they are more ego-driven, intellect-based, "merely" adaptive and related to technique rather than directly related to wholehearted, immersed involvement. Hope this helps.

Yes, it is possible to find out if a person is fit for leadership position. But not through any psychological testing. One has to look into the person's past activities. Leaders are born and not made. They show their leadership skills from a very young age. One can read the biographies of leaders and can find out the common characteristics they had. Formal psychological testing that incorporates questions related to these characteristics will not work as any intelligent person can give the right answers to get the position and when put in leadership position prove to be anything but a leader. thanks.

I am currently researching embryology, and am fascinated by it. However I keep finding comments from medical students about how little significance embryology has in the anatomical curriculum. However for the broader anatomical curriculum, I think it is very important and quite honestly understanding embryology has improved my anatomical knowledge. Surely the importance of embryology in the anatomical curriculum will help us better understand what is normal and what is not, understand better birth defects, allow for intervention, identify disease and also allow for future research in the field of stem cell therapy and also other treatments e.g IVF and so much more. It would be fantastic to hear from those who have experience in this field and share your views on the importance of embryology in the human anatomical curriculum.
How many of you have relied on your anatomical knowledge for research relevant to embryology. warm wishes Sandie
Relevant answer
Answer
I taught obstetrics and gynecology to many students over the years. The vast majority of future doctors prepare themselves for a career where they will diagnose diseases and administer remedies. Therefore, I would not be surprised to hear a student contesting the place of embryology in the curriculum.
Very little energy is spent by most of them on understanding how does the human machinery work. However, that makes the difference between an average doctor and an excellent one. I am not aware of any professional who repairs machinery without understanding how that works.
Perhaps it is, at least in part, our fault: when teaching about disease should we not connect more often signs and symptoms or medical imaging findings with their pathophysiology?
The knowledge of embryology has many practical benefits, which you listed above. I feel that we should highlight to our students the instances where it helps in medical practice, each and every time we encounter one.
