1.#RespectLisa, stop racism: intersectional discrimination in global K-pop

Author:Zhao, JJ


Abstract:This commentary interprets the acerbic and defamatory commentary around the most recent trending of #RespectLisa in February 2021 within the theoretical framework of "intersectionality." Drawn on intersectional feminist media, K-pop, and antifan studies, the commentary reveals the complexities of the hostility targeting the female Thai K-pop celebrity Lisa and considers the hateful discourse a manifestation of intersectional discrimination in global K-pop culture.

9.Transcomputability, (Glanville's corollary of) Ashby's law of requisite variety and epistemic processes

Author:Fischer, T


Abstract:Purpose Ranulph Glanville has argued that ambitions of strict control are misplaced in epistemic processes such as learning and designing. Among other reasons, he has presented quantitative arguments for this ethical position. As a part of these arguments, Glanville claimed that strict control even of modest systems transcends the computational limits of our planet. The purpose of this paper is to review the related discourse and to examine the soundness of this claim. Design/methodology/approach Related literature is reviewed and pertinent lines of reasoning are illustrated and critically examined using examples and straightforward language. Findings The claim that even modest epistemic processes transcend the computational means of our planet is challenged. The recommendation to assume out-of-control postures in epistemic processes, however, is maintained on ethical rather than on quantitative grounds. Originality/value This paper summarizes an important cybernetic discourse and dispels the notion therein that epistemic processes necessarily involve computational demands of astronomical proportions. Furthermore, this paper presents a rare discussion of Glanville's Corollary of Ashby's Law of Requisite Variety.

10.Aerodynamic Shape Optimization for High-Rise Conceptual Design Integrating and validating parametric design, (fast) fluid dynamics, structural analysis and optimization

Author:Zhang, R;Waibel, C;Wortmann, T


Abstract:Using an integrated workflow with parametric design, Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) and Fast Fluid Dynamic (FFD) simulations, structural analysis and optimization, this paper evaluates the relative suitability of CFD and FFD simulations for Aerodynamic Shape Optimization (ASO). Specifically, it applies RBFOpt, a model-based optimization algorithm, to the ASO of a supertall high-rise. The paper evaluates the accuracy of the CFD and FDD simulations relative to a slower, more exact CFD simulation, and the performance of the model-based optimization algorithm relative to CMA-ES, an evolutionary algorithm. We conclude that FFD is useful for relative comparisons, such as for optimization, but less accurate than CFD in terms of absolute quantities. Although results tend to be similar, CMA-ES performs less well than RBFOpt for both large and small numbers of simulations, and for both CFD and FFD. RBFOpt with FFD emerges as the most suitable method for conceptual design, as it is much faster and only slightly less effective than RBFOpt with CFD.

11.ADAMTS13 and 15 are not regulated by the full length and N-terminal domain forms of TIMP-1, -2, -3 and -4

Author:Guo, CQ;Tsigkou, A;Lee, MH


Abstract:A disintegrin and metalloproteinase with thombospondin motifs (ADAMTS) 13 and 15 are secreted zinc proteinases involved in the turnover of von Willebrand factor and cancer suppression. In the present study, ADAMTS13 and 15 were subjected to inhibition studies with the full-length and N-terminal domain forms of tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinases (TIMPs)-1 to -4. TIMPs have no ability to inhibit the ADAMTS proteinases in the full-length or N-terminal domain form. While ADAMTS13 is also not sensitive to the hydroxamate inhibitors, batimastat and ilomastat, ADAMTS15 can be effectively inhibited by batimastat (K-i(app) 299 nM). In conclusion, the present results indicate that TIMPs are not the regulators of these two ADAMTS proteinases.

12.0.009856m(3): Between the Book, the Model, and the Built in the Vedute Collection of Three-Dimensional Manuscripts

Author:Macken, M


Abstract:Housed within the library of Het Nieuwe Instituut in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, is the Vedute Collection. Founded in 1991 with the purpose of building a collection of three-dimensional objects that make visible and tangible the concept of space, the collection is made by those active within various spatial disciplines such as artists, architects, and designers. To be included in the collection, there is an imposed constraint: each contribution must have a fixed format, in closed form, of 44 x 32 x 7centimeters. These objects form a library and are referred to as three-dimensional manuscripts. This essay positions the collection as an alternative space of information for spatial practice, which operates between the book and the model, as a medium and interpretation of representation and built space. The dimensions of the fixed format are derived from the book, yet the contents do not consist of written pages. Their three-dimensionality offers connections to the architectural model, yet they are named manuscripts. The points of intersection between these media and the Vedute Collection will be examined in reference to qualities and characteristics such as objecthood, scale, containment, exteriority, and interiority. Further, the essay discusses the nature of the collection, the library, and the series in spatial documentation, and these spaces as territories for spatial practice, between demarcations of discipline.

13.4,4 '-Bipyridine-1,1 '-diium acetylenedicarboxylate: a new member of the (H(2)bipy)[Cu(ox)(2)] (bipy is 4,4 '-bipyridine and ox is oxalate) family

Author:Chen, XC;Wang, Y;Han, SM;Wei, YJ;Wang, RY


Abstract:4,4'-Bipyridine-1,1'-diium (H(2)bipy) acetylenedicarboxylate, C10H12N22+center dot C4O(4)(2-), (1), is a new member of a family of related structures with similar unit-cell parameters. The structures in this family reported previously [Chen et al. (2012). CrystEngComm, 14, 6400-6403] are (H(2)bipy)[Cu(ox)(2)] (ox is oxalate), (2), (H(2)bipy)[NaH(ox)(2)], (3), and (H(2)bipy)[H-2(ox)(2)], (4). Compound (1) has a one-dimensional structure, in which H(2)bipy(2+) cations and acetylenedicarboxylate (ADC(2-)) anions are linked through a typical supramolecular synthon, i.e. R-2(2)(7), and form linear '-cation-anion-' ribbons. Through an array of nonclassical CH center dot center dot center dot O hydrogen bonds, adjacent ribbons interact to give two-dimensional sheets. These sheets stack to form a layered structure via pi-pi interactions between the H(2)bipy(2+) cations of neighbouring layers. The supramolecular isostructurality of compounds (1)-(4) is ascribed to the synergistic effect of multiple interactions in these structures. The balanced strong and weak intermolecular interactions stabilizing this structure type include strong charge-assisted N-H center dot center dot center dot O hydrogen bonds, C-H center dot center dot center dot O contacts and pi-pi interactions.

14.Forecast of Freight Volume in Xi'an Based on Gray GM (1,1) Model and Markov Forecasting Model

Author:Yang, F;Tang, XY;Gan, YX;Zhang, XD;Li, JC;Han, X


Abstract:Due to the continuous improvement of productivity, the transportation demand of freight volume is also increasing. It is difficult to organize freight transportation efficiently when the freight volume is quite large. Therefore, predicting the total amount of goods transported is essential in order to ensure efficient and orderly transportation. Aiming at optimizing the forecast of freight volume, this paper predicts the freight volume in Xi'an based on the Gray GM (1, 1) model and Markov forecasting model. Firstly, the Gray GM (1, 1) model is established based on related freight volume data of Xi'an from 2000 to 2008. Then, the corresponding time sequence and expression of restore value of Xi'an freight volume can be attained by determining parameters, so as to obtain the gray forecast values of Xi'an's freight volume from 2009 to 2013. In combination with the Markov chain process, the random sequence state is divided into three categories. By determining the state transition probability matrix, the probability value of the sequence in each state and the predicted median value corresponding to each state can be obtained. Finally, the revised predicted values of the freight volume based on the Gray-Markov forecasting model in Xi'an from 2009 to 2013 are calculated. It is proved in theory and practice that the Gray-Markov forecasting model has high accuracy and can provide relevant policy bases for the traffic management department of Xi'an.

15.Four supramolecular isomers of dichloridobis(1,10-phenanthroline)cobalt(II): synthesis, structure characterization and isomerization

Author:Chen, XC;Han, SM;Wang, RY;Li, Y


Abstract:Crystal engineering can be described as the understanding of intermolecular interactions in the context of crystal packing and the utilization of such understanding to design new solids with desired physical and chemical properties. Free-energy differences between supramolecular isomers are generally small and minor changes in the crystallization conditions may result in the occurrence of new isomers. The study of supramolecular isomerism will help us to understand the mechanism of crystallization, a very central concept of crystal engineering. Two supramolecular isomers of dichloridobis(1,10-phenanthroline-k(2) N, N') cobalt(II), [CoCl2(C12H8N2)(2)], i.e. (IA) (orthorhombic) and (IB) (monoclinic), and two supramolecular isomers of dichloridobis(1,10-phenanthroline-k(2) N, N') cobalt(II) N, N-dimethylformamide monosolvate, [CoCl2(C12H8N2)(2)]center dot C3H7NO, i.e. (IIA) (orthorhombic) and (IIB) (monoclinic), were synthesized in dimethylformamide (DMF) and structurally characterized. Of these, (IA) and (IIA) have been prepared and structurally characterized previously [Li et al. (2007). Acta Cryst. E63, m1880-m1880; Cai et al. (2008). Acta Cryst. E64, m1328-m1329]. We found that the heating rate is a key factor for the crystallization of (IA) or (IB), while the temperature difference is responsible for the crystallization of (IIA) or (IIB). Based on the crystallization conditions, isomerization behaviour, the KPI (Kitajgorodskij packing index) values and the density data, (IB) and (IIA) are assigned as the thermodynamic and stable kinetic isomers, respectively, while (IA) and (IIB) are assigned as the metastable kinetic products. The 1,10-phenanthroline (phen) ligands interact with each other through offset face-to-face (OFF) pi-pi stacking in (IB) and (IIB), but by edge-to-face (EF) C-H center dot center dot center dot pi interactions in (IA) and (IIA). Meanwhile, the DMF molecules in (IIB) connect to neighbouring [CoCl2(phen)(2)] units through two C-H center dot center dot center dot Cl hydrogen bonds, whereas there are no obvious interactions between DMF molecules and [CoCl2(phen)(2)] units in (IIA). Since OFF pi-pi stacking is generally stronger than EF C-H center dot center dot center dot pi interactions for transition-metal complexes with nitrogen-containing aromatic ligands, (IIA) is among the uncommon examples that are stable and densely packed but that do not following Etter's intermolecular interaction hierarchy.
