On Gamesmen and Fairmen: Explaining Fairness in Noncooperative Bargaining Games.

Experiments on bargaining games have repeatedly shown that subjects fail to use backward induction and that they only rarely make demands in accordance with the subgame perfect equilibrium. In a recent paper, we proposed an alternative model, termed ‘economic harmony’ in which we modified the individual’s utility by defining it as a function of the […]

Total phenolic content, antioxidant capacity, and antifungal activity of extracts of carthamus tenuis and cephalaria joppensis

Abdullatif Azab Three different extracts (aqueous, ethanolic, and ethyl acetate) of Carthamus tenuis and Cephalaria jopprnsis were prepared and tested fortotal phenolic content (TPC), antioxidant capacity, and antifungal activity. Results for C. tenuis are meaningfully different of known findings. As for C. joppensis, the medicinal and biological properties of this plant were never published before. […]

Robust and Efficient Text: Line Extraction by Local Minimal Sub-Seams

Raid Saabni Robust text line extraction from document images is vital prerequisite for any successful text recognition or analyzing process. Generally, most of the proposed algorithms for this task assumed kind of binarization pre-processing step in order to insure well performance. In this paper, we present a novel robust and efficient algorithm to extract textlines […]

A new case confirming and expanding the phenotype spectrum of ADAT3-related intellectual disability syndrome

Rajech Sharkia, Abdelnaser Zalan, Azhar Jabareen-Masri, Hazar Zahalka, Muhammad Mahajnah The present study describes two patients with clinical diagnosis of ID, from a consanguineous family in Israel. Whole exome sequencing identified a homozygous missense mutation in the ADAT3 gene. The clinical features of our patients were compared with several cases described in two recently published studies that documented clinical manifestation of […]

CNTNAP1 mutations cause CNS hypomyelination and neuropathy with or without arthrogryposis

Holger Hengel, Alex Magee, Muhammad Mahanjah, Jean-Michel Vallat, Robert Ouvrier, Mohammad Abu-Rashid, Jamal Mahamid, Rebecca Schüle, Martin Schulze, Ingeborg Krägeloh-Mann, Peter Bauer, Stephan Züchner, Rajech Sharkia, Ludger Schöls Objective: To explore the phenotypic spectrum and pathophysiology of human disease deriving from mutations in the CNTNAP1 gene. Methods: In a field study on consanguineous Palestinian families, we identified 3 patients carrying homozygous mutations in the CNTNAP1 gene using whole-exome sequencing. An unrelated Irish family was […]
