Cinematic adsSome advertisers created mini movies. Toyota went long with a 90 second ad depicting bank robbers who use a Prius 4 to escape from police. LG enlisted Liam Neeson in a futuristic spot showing off LG’s new OLED 4K TV. Finding landmarks on objects like faces is a challenging computer vision problem, especially in real life conditions (or in the wild) and Active Appearance Models have been widely used to solve it. State of the art algorithms for fitting an AAM to a new image are based on Gauss Newton (GN) optimization. Recently fast GN algorithms have been proposed for both forward additive and inverse compositional fitting frameworks.
High solar gain in hot and arid climates, causes overheating in summer and increases the demand for airconditioning , energy and carbon footprints of buildings. There are different strategies, tools, and solutions to address this problem, but Integrated Faade Systems (IFS) faade systems where different technological solutions are integrated to improve performance and to lower the impact of the building are still an underdeveloped yet a fast growing field of research. Such systems can reduce solar heat gain, lower air conditioning costs and lessen glare, while maximising the use of natural light and help produce energy if combined with PV technology.
However, the magnitude of reduction in peak torque (TTHREE = 19.8 10.1% versus TTEN = 16.8 13.3%) was the same in the two fatiguing exercises (t = 0.76, P = 0.46). There was a significant inverse relationship between the critical power and the reduction in peak torque during both THREE (t = 0.49, P = 0.03) and TEN (t = 0.62, P = 0.02). In contrast, the W was not significantly correlated with the reduction in peak torque during both THREE (t = 0.14, P = 0.33) and TEN (t = 0.30, P = 0.10).
One to shake hands. The other to train. Well, we have those two. Yet even beyond simply falling in love at first sight, looking at a beloved in these medieval texts acts as a sort of spell or enchantment, putting the “looker” into Love’s spell. Chretien’s Lancelot has a great example of this type of all powerful love gazing. In a pivotal scene, Lancelot sees Guinevere again after a long separation..
It is remarkable and almost incredulous that the younger Mill was so firmly in the grip of his father influence that he should have been subservient to his father ideological platform, while in private adhering to views that James Mill would have treated with contempt. This tyrannical relationship should pose considerable problems for how we are to understand a philosopher known principally as the exponent of liberty, much as it also compels us to attempt to reconcile Mill intellectual prowess with what can only be described as moral cowardice. This is not only a conundrum for psychologists and psychoanalysts, but a problem in English intellectual history.
