Abstract – Everyday a lot of diverse data have been generated every day regarding individual opinions and preferences on the contents of Social Network Service (SNS).
These data could affect greatly to various fields of our society such as politics, public opinions, economics, services and entertainments. It is necessary to extract new information from SNS data and to understand the true intention of users or customers. To extract important information, it is required to several techniques to analyze a large amount of SNS data, extract meaningful data from them, and generate new information. This paper presents an efficient method that can process various unstructured big data on social networks, and extract the information for sentiment and generate preferences of users from sentiment information. The proposed method shows O(n) processing time as the number of data increases.See more

Critical Theory against Fascism
Since its foundation, in 1923, the Frankfurt Institute of Social Research has produced one of the most influential discourses on modernity, while its work has become synonymous with the movement of Critical Theory. Better known as the Frankfurt School, and without forming a unified body of congruent theoretical ideas, the movement dissected, under its analytic and kaleidoscopic spectrum, state capitalism into the components that transformed it into the prevailing model of socio-economic relations in Western society. Concerned with the escalating pervasiveness of despotism in the West, the School's critical theorists aimed to develop a contemporary theoretical encapsulation of the shifting configurations of capitalism, enquiring into the rise of fascism, as an interrelated trend. In the 1930s, as the spreading of fascism cast a shadow over Europe, the particular socio-political conditions in Germany occupied the centre of the Frankfurt School's analytical focus.See more

People spend about 90 percent of their time indoors. Consequently, the risks to health may be greater due to exposure to air pollution indoors than outdoors. Cut down on indoor triggers of allergies and asthma by following these simple tips:
• Remove pets from the home and thoroughly clean to eliminate their dander.
• Opt for leather furniture rather than upholstered pieces, since leather is an impervious material that is resistant to breeding dust mites.
• Eliminate carpet and drapes.
• Dust both vertical and horizontal surfaces weekly.
• Keep indoor humidity below 50 percent year-round.
• Open windows for an hour each day during dry seasons to improve ventilation.
• Use a HEPA air filter in the bedroom.
• Clean mold off shower curtains, bathroom and basement walls, and other surfaces with a solution of bleach, detergent, and water.
• Use a dehumidifier if your basement is damp or musty.
• Never allow smoking in the house.
“The air within homes and other buildings can be more seriously polluted than the outdoor air in even the largest and most industrialized cities.”See more

The purpose of the book
Within the brief therapy field, there is a plethora of books on the “how to” of each approach, most of which are effective at demonstrating the approach. Many of the therapists who are recognized within the brief therapy field originated from psychodynamic or systemic schools, having moved across to what they identify as briefer, more respectful, outcome-orientated approaches. Only a few of the publications in this arena are underpinned by theory, research, and evidence-based practice, yet the therapies appear to work.
With the increasing understanding of neuroscience and developmental theory, there is now the opportunity to make the links between these therapies and those that are grounded in a more psychodynamic approach, specifically for attachment disorder and related problems. By adding to the understanding that exists in the field, and supporting this through grounded research, brief therapy may then take its place as a therapy equal to those that have been long recognized in the psychodynamic world.See more
