Khodor Haidar Hassan, Beatrice Paoli, Mohamad Mortada, Fadi Abdel Sater, Fadwa Berri and Mohamad Ezzedine

It is well known that osteopenia and osteoporosis are frequently found celiac disease patients presenting classical symptoms of malabsorption. A low bone mineral density (BMD) has been found in 70% of celiac disease patients (Meyer D., Stavropolous S., et al. 2001). In a prospective study, Margoni, et al. (2012) reported that approximately 30% of children with celiac disease had BMD below 2.5th percentile of the normal population at the time of diagnosis. (Sharma M, Singh P. et al. 2013)....

Rosaiah, K.,2Srinivasa Rao, G. and Sridhar Babu, M.

The exponentiated Fréchet distribution introduced by Nadarajah and Kotz (2006) is considered as a probability model for the lifetime of the product. Sampling plans in which items that are put to test, to collect the life of the items in order to decide upon accepting or rejecting a submitted lot, are called reliability test plans. In this paper, we determine the minimum life test termination time, for various specified acceptance number, sample size and producer’s risk. The prefer ability of...

Retrieval of Facial Expressions for Facilitating Crime Investigation
Nabanita Basu, Sanjay Nag, and Dr. Samir Kumar Bandyopadhyay

The role of the emotions is much neglected in legal theory. This should be puzzling at first sight, because emotions play an important role in many areas of the law. Consider the following problems:
A person who kills while angry is usually guilty of a less serious crime than a person who kills in a calm, unemotional state, but not if the anger is caused by hatred rather than shame. First note victims' body language, such as their posture, facial expression, tone of voice, gestures,...
