A Main Component Analysis in futsal according to game halves: A case study of an amateur futsal cup final. [Analysis of main components in indoor football according to the game: a case study in an amateur crown finish].
AbstractPrincipal Component Analysis (PCA) has not been used to assess the principal component (PC) of players´ external training loads (TL) in futsal. In addition, no previous study has analyzed the PC of players´ external TL depending on the half of the match in futsal. Thus, this study aimed to a...
The protection of the person with half capacity. Followed ethnographic by split autonomy

The effect of climate type on timescales of drought propagation in an ensemble of global hydrological models
<p>Drought is a natural hazard that occurs at many temporal and spatial scales and has severe environmental and socioeconomic impacts across the globe. The impacts of drought change as drought evolves from precipitation deficits to deficits in soil moisture or streamflow. Here, we quantified the...
Data’s Intimacy: Machinic Sensibility and the Quantified Self
Today, machines observe, record the world – not just for us, but sometimes instead of us (in our stead), and even indifferently to us humans. And yet, remain human. Correlationism may not be up to a comprehensive ontology, but the ways in which we encounter, and struggle to make some kind of sense o...
Climate-driven disturbances in the San Juan River sub-basin of the Colorado River
Accelerated climate change and associated forest disturbances in the southwestern USA are anticipated to have substantial impacts on regional water resources. Few studies have quantified the impact of both climate change and land cover disturbances on water balances on the basin scale, and none...
An Approach to Measuring Semantic Relatedness of Geographic Terminologies Using a Thesaurus and Lexical Database Sources
In geographic information science, semantic relatedness is important for Geographic Information Retrieval (GIR), Linked Geospatial Data, geoparsing, and geo-semantics. But computing the semantic similarity/relatedness of geographic terminology is still an urgent issue to tackle. The thesaurus is a u...
Fluvial flood risk management in a changing world
Flood risk emerges from the interaction of hazard and vulnerability. Over recent decades the notion of risk being the basis for flood management decisions has become widely accepted and operationalised through the use of models and quantified risk analysis providing the evidence for risk-informed de...
Evaluation of land surface model simulations of evapotranspiration over a 12-year crop succession: impact of soil hydraulic and vegetation properties
Evapotranspiration has been recognized as one of the most uncertain terms in the surface water balance simulated by land surface models. In this study, the SURFEX/ISBA-A-gs (Interaction Sol–Biosphere–Atmosphere) simulations of evapotranspiration are assessed at the field scale over a 12-year Mediter...

It calls for continuous efforts and great ability of imagination, perseverance and self-control. But before the develloping the scientific approach in its current form, mankind used...
An empirical method for estimating future flood risks for flood warnings
Since medium and long-term precipitation forecasts are still not reliable enough, rough estimates of the degree of the extremity of forthcoming flood events that might occur in the course of dangerous meteorological situations approaching a basin could be useful to decision-makers as additional info...
The essential and the derivative moods of Aristotelian syllogism
It is generally accepted that it is a mistake that Aristotle ignore the moods of the fourth figure in his syllogism. In this paper, I shall argue the Aristotelian syllogism consisting of the essential moods and their derivative moods is complete or self-contained, all the moods of the fourth figure...
To See Invisible Rights: Quantifying Araman informal tenure and its immediate relationship with Social Forestry in Central Java, Indonesia
