The amount of time an individual spends gazing at images is longer if the depicted person is sexually appealing. Despite an increasing use of such response latencies as a diagnostic tool in applied forensic settings, the underlying processes that drive the seemingly robust effect of longer response latencies for sexually attractive targets remain unknown. In the current study, two alternative explanations are presented and tested using an adapted viewing time paradigm that disentangled task- and stimulus-specific processes. Heterosexual and homosexual male participants were instructed to rate the sexual attractiveness of target persons differing in sex and sexual maturation from four experimentally assigned perspectives-heterosexual and homosexual perspectives for both sexes. This vicarious viewing time paradigm facilitated the estimation of the independent contributions of task (assigned perspective) and stimuli to viewing time effects. Results showed a large task-based effect as well as a relatively smaller stimulus-based effect. This pattern suggests that, when viewing time measures are used for the assessment of sexual interest, it should be taken into consideration that response latency patterns can be biased by judging images from a selected perspective.

In this paper we propose a distributed algorithm allowing nodes in delay-tolerant networks to construct vicinity resource maps based on past encounters. Our algorithm estimates the availability of the following resources: energy, buffer space, and bandwidth. We then show how a store-carry-forward scheme may benefit from having access to these resource estimates. While knowledge about resources available in the vicinity allows nodes to implement meaningful custodian election strategies, an evaluation of available bandwidth and contact time allows them to carry out adaptive queue management strategies. Thus, such strategies can be approached from a holistic perspective based on the availability of the three resources under consideration in node proximity.We validate our model separately in time-varying and space-varying environments. In addition to synthetic mobility models (random waypoint) we validate our resource estimation in a disaster area mobility model (using Bonn motion traces). We show that by using this information a routing protocol may dramatically improve its delivery rate and energy overhead while keeping delivery latency almost constant. [less ▲]

By presenting a range of diaristic texts composed by canonical Victorian writers, this article illustrates the variety of forms that Victorian diaries take and shows the ways in which these documents can adopt the status of a public and a private text simultaneously. It explains the repercussions of the critical assessments of the diary genre by New Criticism and feminism, which have privileged aesthetically meritorious diaries and those of women, respectively, for the field of Victorian diary criticism. It argues that the more inclusive approach of Philippe Lejeune represents a useful alternative to interpretative strategies that are exclusively preoccupied with the literary form of a diary or the gender of its author. Many diary scholars have been influenced by Lejeune’s work because it highlights the heteroglossic diversity that is characteristic of Victorian diaries, which, in turn, allows for a clearer understanding of the subjective experience of Victorian individuals and the ways in which they negotiated their value within the cultural context of the nineteenth century.

In this paper, we explore the concept of providing feedback to a user moving in front of a depth camera so that he is able to replicate a specific template action. This can be used as a home based rehabilitation system for stroke survivors, where the objective is for patients to practice and improve their daily life activities. Patients are guided in how to correctly perform an action by following feedback proposals. These proposals are presented in a human interpretable way. In order to align an action that was performed with the template action, we explore two different approaches, namely, Subsequence Dynamic Time Warping and Temporal Commonality Discovery. The first method aims to find the temporal alignment and the second one discovers the interval of the subsequence that shares similar content, after which standard Dynamic Time Warping can be used for the temporal alignment. Then, feedback proposals can be provided in order to correct the user with respect to the template action. Experimental results show that both methods have similar accuracy rate and the computational time is a decisive factor, where Subsequence Dynamic Time Warping achieves faster results. [less ▲]

In order to combat violence and criminality, Johannesburg, in its striving to become a «world-class city», has installed a closed circuit television system in its Central Business District (CBD). The article analyses the social and spatial effects of this modern surveillance technology. It is argued that surveillance by camera essentially aims at protecting important areas. Its effect on reducing criminality does not appear to be as certain. Furthermore, closed circuit television has contributed towards a new territorialisation of space in the wake of Apartheid and towards the introduction of a privatized public culture. This means that a whole segment of the population appears to be excluded from such areas on socio-economic grounds. [less ▲]
