  • The purpose of this study was: (1) to examine relationships between social development and day care quality, child-care experience and family characteristics, and (2) to investigate the explainability of those related variables for social development. Subjects for this study were 252 4-year-old children and their mothers from 32 day care centers in Seoul. Harms & Clifford's Early Childhood Environment Rating Scale was used to measure the quality of day care. The main results were as follows: (1) Day care quality, child-care experience and family characteristics were significantly related to social development. (2) Child's gender, months of age, mother's child rearing attitude, the length of child-care experience, overall quality of day care, and group size significantly predicted social development. 33% of the variance of social development was explained by these variables. The relative influence of these variables to the prediction of social development was about the same.

  • Sub-Synchronous Resonance (SSR) is a phenomenon that harms turbine generator shafts because the phenomenon induces sub-synchronous wavering in the system. In the study presented in this paper, a dynamic resistance bank is used to mitigate the occurrence of sub-synchronous phenomenon. A fuzzy logic controller using rotor speed deviation and its derivative as inputs is implemented to damp sub-synchronous oscillations more efficiently. An eigenvalue technique is used to analyse the stability of the system, and a simulation in MATLAB is conducted, based on the IEEE Second Benchmark, to validate the effectiveness of the proposed method under a 3-phase fault condition at an infinite bus. The time-domain simulation and eigenvalues are used to observe the proposed method's superior ability to damp sub-synchronous oscillation.

  • Recently WHO death from smoking-related illness would increase more than a thousand in the future. But in spite of various harms, smoking cigarette in developing countries is increasing especially in the adolescents. So in order to evaluate whether auricular acupuncture therapy is effective to quit smoking, clinical examination was carried out. And the results showed that age of starting smoking become lower. The cause of smoking is curiosity, relaxation, envy and comradeship. For this reason they want to stop smoking but feel it is difficult to do. Cigarette smoking didn't show any significant change after auricular acupuncture in both control and therapy. And physical and psychological change did not present any significance. However, auricular acupuncture therapy was appeared to be effective to stop smoking. So with these results, further systemic research to examine the effect of auricular acupuncture is seem to be necessary.

  • With the Westernization and opening of our society, adolescents' smoking is increasing and being popularized. Many adolescents start smoking at an early age out of curiosity and venturesomeness, and earlier start of smoking makes it more difficult to quit smoking. Adolescents' habitual smoking not only becomes a gateway to all kinds of substance abuse but also causes various health problems including upper respiratory infection, immature lung development, reduced maximum vital capacity, and lung cancer. Therefore, it is quite important to prevent adolescents from smoking. The lowering of adolescents' smoking rate cannot be achieved only through social restrictions such as stereotyped education on the harms of smoking and ID checking. In order to lower adolescents' smoking rate substantially, each area of society should develop standardized programs and make related efforts. As adolescents' smoking is highly influenced by home environment or school life, it is necessary to make efforts in effective education and social reinforcement in school, to establish related norms, and to execute preventive education using peer groups. When these efforts are spread throughout society in cooperation with homes and communities, they will be helpful to protect adolescents' health and improve their quality of life.

  • The purpose of this study was to investigate the current status of family child care. The status of family child care was explored in terms of general characteristics, program quality, and child behavior. The subjects were 17 family child care and their 102 children and 60 parents. Harms & Clifford's (1989) FDCRS(Family Day Care Rating Scale) was used to measure program quality. Child behavior was recorded by time sampling in two 30 min observations during the free play session in each facility. A questionnaire for caregiver and parents was used to investigate general characteristics. The data were analysed by frequency, percentage, and Pearson's r. Results showed that (1) a wide range of variable accounted for the general characteristics of family child care, (2) the level of program quality as rated by the FDCRS was below mid-point, (3) children engaged in solitary behavior much more than in peer interactions or caregiver-child interactions.

  • The framework and application model for risk mitigation service based on network provides monitoring function of the risk event data to be inputted and analyses it for mitigation process. Furthermore, it performs the analysis of the manmade calamities such as accident, building destruction, natural calamities caused by climate change, and animal harms caused by bird flu and foot-and-mouth disease occurring in livestock and wild animals, and provides the mitigation service of it. The application model for risk mitigation is combined with network and carries out the real time acquisition and monitoring of risk events, and provides mitigation service for the risks caused by calamities and reduces economic losses.

  • The pilot study of SLGT (Superconducting Low-frequency Gravitational-wave Telescope) is being performed by KKN (KASI-KISTI-NIMS) collaboration. Among environmental noise sources, Newtonian noise (NN) is one of the most challenging obstacles in order to achieve a good sensitivity in low frequency below 10Hz for terrestrial gravitational wave (GW) detectors. So we should mitigate them for operating the SLGT to detect GWs on the ground. In this poster, we discuss the NNs and its mitigation for SLGT.
