Identifying breakpoints in public opinion

Cuneyt Gurcan Akcora, Murat Ali Bayir, Murat Demirbas, Hakan Ferhatosmanoglu
2010 Proceedings of the First Workshop on Social Media Analytics - SOMA '10  
We consider the problem of identifying breakpoints in public opinion, and propose using micro-blogging sites to capture trends in public opinion.  ...  We develop methods to detect changes in public opinion, and find events that cause these changes.  ...  Moreover, while events unfold rapidly and public opinion changes with those events, polls cannot account for the temporal changes in public opinion.  ...

Sevgi Coskun Keskin, Aysegul Kirtel, Yusuf Keskin
2015 Procedia - Social and Behavioral Sciences  
The achieved data has been analyzed in terms of percentage and frequency of the concepts. Concepts which have breakpoints above 60, 50, 40 and 30, have been associated with mind maps.  ...  Social Sciences have a great role in developing concepts.  ...  What relation the citizenship concepts such as government, citizenship, democracy, constitution, state, election and public opinion in the social studies curriculum have directly or indirectly with the  ...

Michael Ahlers, Hilary Aralis, Wilson Tang, Jeremy Sussman, Gregg Fonarow, Boback Ziaeian
2021 biorxiv/medrxiv  
Empirically derived breakpoints in case and mortality velocities were used to identify periods of stable, decreasing, or increasing COVID-19 burden.  ...  In mutually adjusted models, odds remained elevated for stay at home (AOR 1.47, 95% CI 1.04-2.07) and public mask mandate (AOR = 2.27, 95% CI 1.51-3.41).  ...  NPI influence on COVID-19 Death Velocities A total of 461 death breakpoints were identified ( Table 1) . 330 (71.6%) of breakpoints corresponded to a decrease in death velocity and 131 (28.4%) corresponded  ...

Forecasting Accuracy of the Hollow Fiber Model of Tuberculosis for Clinical Therapeutic Outcomes

Tawanda Gumbo, Jotam G. Pasipanodya, Klaus Romero, Debra Hanna, Eric Nuermberger
2015 Clinical Infectious Diseases  
To avoid hindsight bias, a literature search was performed to identify clinical studies published at least 6 months after HFS-TB experiments' quantitative predictions.  ...  Twenty clinical studies were published after HFS-TB experiments predicted optimal drug exposures and doses, susceptibility breakpoints, and optimal combination regimens.  ...  Table 2 also demonstrates that the optimal dosing schedules identified in the HFS-TB correlated well with the optimal dosing schedules identified in clinical studies.  ...

Detection and visualization of complex structural variants from long reads

Zachary Stephens, Chen Wang, Ravishankar K. Iyer, Jean-Pierre Kocher
2018 BMC Bioinformatics  
We demonstrate the ability of our method to identify breakpoints inserted in synthetic data with high accuracy, and the ability to detect and plot SVs from NA12878 germline, achieving 88.4% concordance  ...  Longer reads, such as those from Pacific Biosciences platforms, often span multiple breakpoints of such events, and thus provide a way to unravel small-scale complexities in SVs with higher confidence.  ...  Any opinions, findings, and conclusions or recommendations expressed in this material are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily reflect the views of the NSF.  ...

2020 Emerging Infectious Diseases  
We identified 44/45 isolates that were intermediately susceptible to penicillin by the 2015 breakpoint, despite meeting previous CLSI criteria for susceptibility.  ...  In 2015, the Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI) updated its breakpoints for penicillin susceptibility in Corynebacterium species from <1 mg/L to <0.12 mg/L.  ...  Paul's Hospital microbiology and virology laboratory staff for their commitment to quality testing and for identifying the isolates included in this study.  ...

2015 Familial Cancer  
Here we present a novel 7001 bps deletion of STK11 gene fragment, in which we identified the presence of breakpoints (BPs) within the Alu elements.  ...  Comparative meta-analysis with the 80 other CNV cases from 12 publications describing STK11 mutations in patients with PJS revealed the participation of specific Alu elements in all deletions of exons  ...  Open Access This article is distributed under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution License which permits any use, distribution, and reproduction in any medium, provided the original author(s)  ...

N. Chalaow, S. L. Thein, V. Viprakasit
2013 Haematologica  
To test whether these two reported deletions were identical, we compared the sequence breakpoints of our known Thai/Vietnamese (db) 0 -thalassemia previously identified by a multiplex GAP-PCR 6 ( Figure  ...  However, in the publication by Ghedira et al., 1 the GRCh37.p5 NC_000011.9 (UCSC and Ensembl genome browser) was used as a template and the deletion extended from co-ordinates 5241853-5254462del with  ...

A Chromosomal Inversion Unique to the Northern White-Cheeked Gibbon

Lucia Carbone, Alan R. Mootnick, Tilo Nadler, Pierre Moisson, Oliver Ryder, Christian Roos, Pieter J. de Jong, Michael Hofreiter
2009 PLoS ONE  
The availability of the sequence spanning for one of the breakpoints of the inversion allows detecting it by a simple PCR test also on low quality DNA.  ...  With less than 500 individuals left in the wild, the northern white-cheeked gibbon (Nomascus leucogenys leucogenys, NLE) is the most endangered primate in a successful captive breeding program.  ...  In a recent publication, Mootnick [3] commented on all the complications that can arise when conservation or rescue centers need to identify some of the gibbon taxa.  ...

Forecasting the Spread of the COVID-19 Pandemic Based on the Communication of Coronavirus Sceptics

Melinda Magyar, László Kovács, Dávid Burka
2021 Engineering Proceedings  
We aim to investigate the causal relationship between communication about COVID-19 on social media, anti-mask events, and epidemiological indicators in three countries: the USA, Spain, and Hungary.  ...  This effect is something similar experienced in Spain, as public opinion was critical of the late government response during the second wave in Hungary [28] .  ...  These findings seem to confirm the findings of [26, 27] , who suggest that public opinion had a part in reintroducing strict government measures during the summer of 2020.  ...

Romney M. Humphries, April N. Abbott, Janet A. Hindler
2019 Journal of Clinical Microbiology  
This mini-review describes the breakpoints revisions in the M100 Supplement since 2010, and strategies for the laboratory on how to best adopt these in clinical testing.  ...  In 2019, these revisions include changes to the ciprofloxacin and levofloxacin breakpoints for the Enterobacteriaceae and Pseudomonas aeruginosa, daptomycin breakpoints for Enterococcus spp., and ceftaroline  ...  The use of current carbapenem breakpoints is also imperative to public health initiatives.  ...

Chasing the ghost of infection past: identifying thresholds of change during the COVID-19 infection in Spain [article]

Luis Santamaria, Joaquin Hortal
2020 biorxiv/medrxiv   pre-print
We conducted segmented, linear regressions on log-transformed data to identify changes in the slope of these curves and/or sudden shifts in the number of cases (i.e. changes in the intercept) at fitted  ...  The combination of both breakpoints seemingly led to the start of the contention of the disease outbreak by early April, the limit of our time series.  ...  We acknowledge support of the publication fee by the CSIC Open Access Publication Support Initiative through its Unit of Information Resources for Research (URICI).  ...
