Background: For a small minority of individuals, the overuse of digital technologies has been associated with negative factors, including psychological distress and psychopathological symptoms. Two technology based addictions internet gaming disorder (IGD) and social media addiction (SMA) have been found to be related to comorbid disorders and impulsivity especially in adolescents and emerging adults’ populations, but results in this field are inconclusive.Purpose: Using the latent profile analysis (LPA), this study identified different profiles of adolescents characterized by unique patterns of psychopathological risks, and similar levels of impulsivity, IGD, and SMA.Participants and methods: A total of 643 participants (312 males; Mage =16.02 years) were divided into three age groups (early, mid , and late adolescence). They completed a battery of scales comprising: Internet Gaming Disorder Scale Short Form, Bergen Social Media Addiction Scale, Barratt Impulsiveness Scale for Adolescents, and Symptom Checklist 90 R.Results: LPAs revealed distinct profiles across early, mid and late adolescence with regards to the psychopathological variables taken into account.
F. And Terenzi, L. And Toffolatti, L. Obviously I can compete for the long run in a Grand Slam. Open is the only major that decides matches that way. Absolutely needs to change, said Anderson coach, Brad Stine.. In this paper, we propose a new topological feature descriptor that can be used in the detection of freeform topological markers, including Artcodes. This feature descriptor is called a Shape of Orientation Histogram (SOH). We construct this SOH feature vector by quantifying the level of symmetry and smoothness of the orientation histogram, and then use a Random Forest machine learning approach to classify images that contain Artcodes using the new feature vector.
In arable landscapes, the airborne detection of archaeological features is often reliant on using the properties of the vegetation cover as a proxy for sub surface features in the soil. Under the right conditions, the formation of vegetation marks allows archaeologists to identify and interpret archaeological features. Using airborne Laser Scanning, based on the principles of Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) to detect these marks is challenging, particularly given the difficulties of resolving subtle changes in a low and homogeneous crop with these sensors.
Photograph of Makemake taken by the Hubble Space Telescope. Credit: NASA/Mike BrownIn order to preserve the object’s connection with Easter, the object was given a name derived from the mythos of the Rapa Nui (the native people of Easter Island) to whom Makemake is the creator God. It was officially classified as a dwarf planet and a plutoid by the International Astronomical Union (IAU) on July 19th, 2008..
