Making Positive Family Memories Together and Improving Quality-of-Life Through Thick Sociality and Bonding at Local Community Festivals and Events
Our study contributes to the current research on tourism and quality-of-life (QOL) by investigating Memorable Event Experiences (MEE), as a primary resource for familial bonding and memory creation. A mixed methods approach ...
Developing practical techniques for quantitative assessment of ecosystem services on farmland
The application of the concept of ecosystem services in the context of environmental management of agricultural landscapes is a relatively new and developing topic. There is increasing demand for the delivery of ecosystem ...
A numerical study on the influence of internal corrugated reinforcements on the biaxial bending collapse of thin-walled beams
The Heat Treatment Forming and in-die Quench (HFQ) process allows for manufacturing of more complex geometries from Aluminium sheets than ever before, which can be exploited in lightweight automotive and aerospace structures. ...
Investigation into mechanical, absorption and swelling behaviour of hemp/sisal fibre reinforced bioepoxy hybrid composites: Effects of stacking sequences
This work focuses on the fabrication of hybrid bio-composites using green epoxy as the matrix material, hemp (H) and sisal (S) fibre mats as the reinforcements. The hybrid composite with sisal/hemp fibres were fabricated ...
Hybrid multisynchronization of coupled multistable memristive neural networks with time delays
In this paper, we focus on synchronization issue of coupled multistable memristive neural networks (CMMNNs) with time delay under multiple stable equilibrium states. First, we build delayed CMMNNs consisting of one master ...
Vestibular modulation of multisensory integration during actual and vicarious tactile stimulation
The vestibular system has been shown to contribute to multisensory integration by balancing conflictual sensory information. It remains unclear whether such modulation of exteroceptive (e.g., vision), proprioceptive, and ...
The prevalence and impact of online trolling of UK members of parliament
Online trolling is a new phenomenon that is increasingly coming to public attention. Recent events in the United Kingdom (UK) have raised concerns about this behaviour. Trolling is particularly targeted at public figures, ...

Investigating the Common Authorship of Signatures by Off-line Automatic Signature Verification without the Use of Reference Signatures
In Automatic Signature Veriﬁcation, questioned specimens are usually compared with reference signatures. In writer-dependent schemes, a number of reference signatures are required to build up the individual signer model ...
An overview of burst, buckling, durability and corrosion analysis of lightweight FRP composite pipes and their applicability
The main aim of this review article was to address the performance of filament wound fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) composite pipes and their critical properties, such as burst, buckling, durability and corrosion. The ...
