Social media platforms make trade-offs in their design and policy decisions to attract users and stand out from other platforms. These decisions are influenced by a number of considerations, e.g. what kinds of content moderation to deploy or what kinds of resources a platform has access to. Their choices play into broader political tensions; social media platforms are situated within a social context that frames their impact, and they can have politics through their design that enforce power structures and serve existing authorities. We turn to Pillowfort, a small social media platform, to examine these political tensions as a case study. Using a discourse analysis, we examine public discussion posts between staff and users as they negotiate the site's development over a period of two years. Our findings illustrate the tensions in navigating the politics that users bring with them from previous platforms, the difficulty of building a site's unique identity and encouraging commitment, and examples of how design decisions can both foster and break trust with users. Drawing from these findings, we discuss how the success and failure of new social media platforms are impacted by political influences on design and policy decisions.

Art colonnades and museums all over the world are the first option for individuals to visit for the enhancement of the cultural life of people. To ensure their safety, museums have established numerous cultural security measures. Traditional strategies do not obstruct their pace entirely. They only use a computer in the museum to check individuals at the entrance and exit. Therefore, the authors proposed a gallery anti-stealing device created on the internet-of-things (IoT) technology that ensures security through passive readers/writers of RFID. Radio frequency identification (RFID) remains a system that practices isolated data storing and recovery and offers object tracking with a unique identity code. The system then sends sound and light warning information, while the photographic camera structure is triggered to capture a picture at the same time. The recognition of the accuracy in the hardware component of the device can be additionally enhanced by the use of this technology to increase the safety of museum equipment.

The intention of the author is to provide a more systematic, not exhaustive, insight into the mystical meaning, place, and role of virtue in the economy of salvation, based on the revelation recorded in the early Christian writing of the New Testament prophet and apostle Hermas – The Shepherd. The author locates the place of virtue in the realism of simultaneous and interdependent building of salvation (of man) and building of the Church as a unique (multidimensional) process. Like very few paternal writings, the Shepherd gives us an explicit conclusion that the virtues are the ones that “hold” and build the Church, “dressing” the faithful in the “clothes,” “powers” and Name of the Son of God. By “dressing” in virtues, Christians achieve that “in the likeness,” they are likened to Christ, thus becoming similar and compatible to each other, thus gaining, as a new genus, a one unique identity. That is why the Church, which is being built as the Tower of Salvation, is composed of a multitude, by repentance and virtue shaped and ennobled elects (stones), manifesting itself, thus, in a „monolithic“ building, monochromatic white, as from one carved stone. For this reason, the paper aims to re– evaluate the ontological connection of virtue with the Church (ecclesiology).

Tamil Pattiyal Grammar Works are Grammatial text (Sitrilakkiyam) for literature that originated from the lives of Tamil Speaking people. Pattiyal Grammar text are thought to be an alternative to the long-time grammatical tradition. Follow such a tradition Tamil Paattiyal Grammar state the monolingual principles for the four types of births of the god, people, naragar, animal. These grammar text created a unique identity for itself. This is because of the authors of the book wrote their own ideas as grammatical principles. This is the Hypothesis of the article. This review article is based on the criteria for Descriptive performance, Sociological performance and Comparative performance.

The Series of Archaeological Dances is a creative work of Thai dance inspired by information and evidence of ancient antiquities and sites discovered in Thailand to make the archaeological evidence found to be alive again in the form of Thai theatre and dance. The name of the historical period of art identified by the scholars are used to define the names of five performance of the Archaeological Dances, namely, Dvāravatī Dance, Srīvijaya Dance, Lopburi Dance, Chiang Saen Dance, and Sukhothai Dance. Each performance has its own unique style with no related content to each other. This series of dances were premiered on 25 May 1967, in front of King Rama IX and Queen Sirikit. Regarding to the movement of the body, there is unique identity that reflects the ethnicity of the area and the civilization from the land where the archaeological evidence of each era was discovered. They were created according to the imagination of the choreographers of the dance posture. In addition, The Series of Archaeological Dances are popularly performed on various occasions continuously until present day. ระบ􀄬ำชุดโบรำณคดี เป็นผลงำนสร้ำงสรรค์ด้ำนนำฏศิลป์ของประเทศไทยที่ได้รับแรงบันดำลใจจำกข้อมูลและหลัก ฐำนด้ำนศิลปะโบรำณวัตถุสถำนที่ถูกค้นพบได้ในพื้นที่ประเทศไทย เพื่อต้องกำรให้หลักฐำนโบรำณคดีที่ค้นพบได้ กลับมำมีชีวิตชีวำอีกครั้งในรูปแบบของนำฏศิลป์ โดยใช้ชื่อยุคสมัยทำงศิลปะที่นักวิชำกำรประวัติศำสตร์ระบุไว้ มำ ก􀄬ำหนดเป็นชื่อของกำรแสดงจ􀄬ำนวน 5 ชุด คือ ระบ􀄬ำทวำรวดี ระบ􀄬ำศรีวิชัย ระบ􀄬ำลพบุรี ระบ􀄬ำเชียงแสน และระบ􀄬ำ สุโขทัย กำรแสดงแต่ละชุดเป็นลักษณะแบบเอกเทศ ไม่มีเนื้อหำเกี่ยวข้องกัน จัดแสดงรอบปฐมทัศน์เมื่อวันที่ 25 พฤษภำคม พ.ศ. 2510 ต่อหน้ำพระที่นั่งของในหลวงรัชกำลที่ 9 และพระรำชินีในรัชกำลที่ 9 ในด้ำนกำรเคลื่อนไหว ร่ำงกำยมีเอกลักษณ์ที่สะท้อนควำมเป็นชำติพันธุ์ของพื้นที่และอำรยธรรมดินแดนที่ค้นพบหลักฐำนโบรำณคดีแต่ละ ยุคสมัย ซึ่งใช้รูปแบบกำรสร้ำงสรรค์ของนำฏศิลป์ไทยตำมจินตนำกำรของผู้ประดิษฐ์ท่ำร􀄬ำ นอกจำกนี้ระบ􀄬ำชุด โบรำณคดีได้รับควำมนิยมในกำรจัดแสดงอย่ำงต่อเนื่องในวำระต่ำง ๆ มำจนถึงปัจจุบัน

Chromatin structure and underlying DNA accessibility is modulated by the incorporation of histone variants. H2A.Z, a variant of the H2A core histone family, plays a distinct and essential role in a diverse set of biological functions including gene regulation and maintenance of heterochromatin-euchromatin boundaries. Although it is currently unclear how the replacement of H2A with H2A.Z can regulate gene expression, the variance in their amino acid sequence likely contributes to their functional differences. To tease apart regions of H2A.Z that confer its unique identity, a set of plasmids expressing H2A-H2A.Z hybrids from the native H2A.Z promoter were examined for their ability to recapitulate H2A.Z function. First, we found that the H2A.Z M6 region was necessary and sufficient for interaction with the SWR1-C chromatin remodeler. Remarkably, the combination of only 9 amino acid changes, the H2A.Z M6 region, K79 and L81 (two amino acids in the α2-helix), were sufficient to fully rescue growth phenotypes of the htz1Δ mutant. Furthermore, combining three unique H2A.Z regions (K79 and L81, M6, C-terminal tail) was sufficient for expression of H2A.Z-dependent heterochromatin-proximal genes and GAL1 derepression. Surprisingly, hybrid constructs that restored the transcription of H2A.Z-dependent genes, did not fully recapitulate patterns of H2A.Z-specific enrichment at the tested loci. This suggested that H2A.Z function in transcription regulation may be at least partially independent of its specific localization in chromatin. Together, this work has identified three regions that can confer specific H2A.Z-identity to replicative H2A, furthering our understanding of what makes a histone variant a variant.

AbstractStem cell niches are local microenvironments that preserve their unique identity while communicating with adjacent tissues. In the primary root of Arabidopsis thaliana, the stem cell niche comprises the expression of two transcription factors, BRAVO and WOX5, among others. Intriguingly, these proteins confine their own gene expression to the niche, as evidenced in each mutant background. Here we propose through mathematical modeling that BRAVO confines its own expression domain to the stem cell niche by attenuating its WOX5-dependent diffusible activator. This negative feedback drives WOX5 action to be spatially restricted as well. The results show that WOX5 diffusion and sequestration by binding to BRAVO is sufficient to drive realistic confined BRAVO expression at the stem cell niche. We propose that attenuation of a diffusible activator can be a general mechanism to confine genetic activity to a small region while at the same time maintain signaling within it and with the surrounding cells.

Gait walking patterns are one of the key research topics in natural biometrics. The temporal information of the unique gait sequence of a person is preserved and used as a powerful data for access. Often there is a dive into the flexibility of gait sequence due to unstructured and unnecessary sequences that tail off the necessary sequence constraints. The authors in this work present a novel perspective, which extracts useful gait parameters regarded as independent frames and patterns. These patterns and parameters mark as unique signature for each subject in access authentication. This information extracted learns to identify the patterns associated to form a unique gait signature for each person based on their style, foot pressure, angle of walking, angle of bending, acceleration of walk, and step-by-step distance. These parameters form a unique pattern to plot under unique identity for access authorization. This sanitized data of patterns is further passed to a residual deep convolution network that automatically extracts the hierarchical features of gait pattern signatures. The end layer comprises of a Softmax classifier to classify the final prediction of the subject identity. This state-of-the-art work creates a gait-based access authentication that can be used in highly secured premises. This work was specially designed for Defence Department premises authentication. The authors have achieved an accuracy of 90 % ± 1.3 % in real time. This paper mainly focuses on the assessment of the crucial features of gait patterns and analysis of gait patterns research.

In attempting to make the case that the defining reason the books of the New Testament are considered sacred is because of their focus on the unique identity of Jesus Christ, we have explored the Gospels, the Acts of the Apostles, and writings of Paul. We turn now, with the same conviction, to some of the remaining New Testament books. Our goal here is not to consider every book of the New Testament but to make the case that in the vast majority of them, their proclamation of Christ is central and defining. The books we will focus on in this chapter include Hebrews, James, 1 Peter, 1 John, and Revelation, taken in the order in which they appear in the canon. Despite the evident literary diversity of these texts, there is a commanding unity—a unity grounded in their focus on the figure of Jesus Christ. It is that varied but unifying portrayal found in these books which will command our attention in this chapter.

A unifying motif of the New Testament and one that renders it sacred in the eyes of Christian faith is its assertion of the unique identity of Jesus Christ. While much of modern biblical scholarship has attempted to reconstruct the actual historical circumstances of Jesus in his first-century Jewish context, the New Testament writings themselves find their sacred character in their affirmation of the unique character of the Jesus of faith as both human and divine. This is affirmed in a variety of ways in the Four Gospels as they consider in diverse ways the ultimate origin of Jesus, the “theophanies” that occur during Jesus’s ministry, various titles assigned to him, and the nature of his death and resurrection. While biblical scholarship legitimately explores the historical context of Jesus’s life and teaching, Christians strive to see the intrinsic connection between the historical circumstances of Jesus’s life and the faith affirmations of early Christianity about his unique identity.
