New Zealand’s election : Will there be an upset ?
New Zealand’s recent General Election may have taken place but it is not really over. Special and overseas votes remain to be counted. The final total result is set for 7 October. Then a governing \ coalition has to be put ...
Sustainability: Beware of Greenwashing
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were endorsed by the global community through the UN in late 2015. Sustainability reporting has become a business, and there is evidence of some degree of “Greenwashing”. Walking ...
After the Muktamar: Is a New PAS Emerging?
Malaysia’s Islamist party PAS held its 63rd congress amid huge publicity of a full and complete break from the opposition alliance. The bigger significance, however, is what this all means and what future direction PAS will take.
Rogue Aquatic Drones
Drones can facilitate terrorism and crime. As maritime technologies particularly aquatic drones progressively grow, it is a matter of time before new threats emerge.
DEM study of the size-induced segregation dynamics of a ternary-size granular mixture in the rolling-regime rotating drum
Segregation induced by size, shape, or density difference of the granular material is inevitable in both natural and industrial processes; unfortunately, the underlying mechanism is still not fully understood. In view of ...
A multitask diffusion strategy with optimized inter-cluster cooperation
We consider a multitask estimation problem where nodes in a network are divided into several connected clusters, with each cluster performing a least-mean-squares estimation of a different random parameter vector. Inspired ...
New hardware and power efficient sporadic logarithmic shifters for DSP applications
Shifting an input data by variable amounts is commonly found in arithmetic operations, data encoding and bit-indexing. Although some shift amounts along the entire shift range are not required, the typical realization by ...
Integration of energy harvesting and electrochemical storage devices
Multifunctional energy devices with various energy forms in different operation modes are emerging to meet the ever-increasing demand for future advanced smart electronics. Currrently, substantial efforts are being devoted ...
Equiangular line systems and switching classes containing regular graphs
We develop the theory of equiangular lines in Euclidean spaces. Our focus is on the question of when a Seidel matrix having precisely three distinct eigenvalues has a regular graph in its switching class. We make some ...
All-inorganic metal halide perovskite nanostructures : from photophysics to light-emitting applications
All-inorganic metal halide perovskite nanostructures (IHPNs) have sparked intense research interest by virtue of the superior optical properties and the cost-effective synthesis. Since the first report in 2015, striking ...
