Yoga and violence : international yoga day and Indian religious politics
While International Yoga Day seeks to promote spirituality and wellbeing, its origin may be linked to Hindu nationalist militant extremism. Will its benevolent ideals prevail?
Large eddy simulations of 45° inclined dense jets
Submerged inclined dense jets (negatively buoyant jets) occur in many engineering applications such as brine discharges from seawater desalination plants and de-cooling water discharges from liquefied natural gas plants, ...
Optimal relativities and transition rules of a bonus-malus system
When a bonus–malus system with a single set of optimal relativities and a set of simple transition rules is implemented, two inadequacy scenarios are induced because all policyholders are subject to the same a posteriori ...
K-wave simulation to understand the photoacoustic signal characteristics from various shapes of nanoparticles
Current attempts in understanding the photoacoustic signal characteristic of various shapes of nanoparticles is mostly performed through numerical simulations. However these computational methods are very time consuming, ...
Deep imaging with low-cost photoacoustic tomography system with pulsed diode laser
Optical imaging beyond a few mm inside biological tissue is a challenging task due to the light scattering inside the biological tissue. Photoacoustic tomography (PAT) breaks this depth limit of optical imaging by ...
Probing cellulose amphiphilicity
Cellulose dissolution and regeneration is an increasingly active research field due to the direct relevance for numerous production processes and applications. The problem is not trivial since cellulose solvents are of ...
Anti-Chinese protests in Turkey : relations with China under test
Protests in Turkey against alleged repression of Muslim Uighurs in Xinjiang have put China’s sensitive relationships with the Muslim world to the test. The protests raise the spectre of China’s restrictive policy towards ...
High speed photoacoustic tomography system with low cost portable pulsed diode laser
Photoacoustic tomography (PAT) is a potential hybrid imaging modality that has attracted great attention in the fields of medical imaging. In order to generate photoacoustic signal efficiently Q-switched Nd:YAG pump lasers ...
White light single-shot interferometry with colour CCD camera for optical inspection of microsystems
White light interferometry is a well-established optical tool for surface metrology of reflective samples. In this work, we discuss a single-shot white light interferometer based on single-chip color CCD camera and Hilbert ...
Researching English in contemporary China
This article provides and introduction to the range of research issues covered by the contributions to this special issue on English in contemporary China. It is suggested that the role of English in Chinese society today ...
