“descendant”. An additional principal is the Markov blanket of a node that involves the family of a node – its parents, its children and the step parents of the children , outlined in Figure 3. The system demonstrated using the Bayesian network approach has a hierarchical topology. The node labelled A is the node of interest, those above it is its parents, those below it is its children while alongside it is the other parents of its children. The purple area within the dotted circle is the Markov blanket where it includes all the variables of interest while keeping the non-variables outside of the boundary. This indicates that the Markov blanket of a node is the only information required to forecast the manner of the interested node .
Figure 3 Example of hierarchies of a Markov blanket.
After the structure of the network is defined, connections between the linked nodes will be quantified by indicating a conditional probability distribution for all the nodes. This is done by exploring all the possible combinations of the parent nodes’ values. This procedure is known as an instantiation of the parent set. The probability of the children taking the parent node values must be identified. Bayesian networks modelling methodology generally undertakes the principal of Markov property: no variables in the structure being modelled are directly dependent on each other unless explicitly indicated by links. Bayesian networks which exhibit Markov property can also be known as…
Egyptian Cotton vs. Bamboo Bed Sheets
Egyptian cotton or bamboo bed sheets, which is better? On one hand, Egyptian cotton sheets are well established as the epitome of luxury while bamboo sheets are still fairly new to the world of bedding. On the other hand, bamboo sheets have some unique properties, giving it a competitive edge.
So, when you’re shopping for a new set of sheets, should you opt for Egyptian cotton or bamboo? To answer this question, we’ve compared Egyptian cotton to bamboo…
If you ever want to lead your horse(s), you need a halter and a lead rope. A halter is a head brace for a horse that allows for safer leading and comfort for the horse. The lead rope is a piece of rope with a metal clip attached, almost like a leash. If you ever want to ride your horse(s), one must acquire a horse blanket, saddle, and a bridle with reins. A saddle blanket allows for comfort for the horse, and the saddle makes for a safer, easier riding experience. The bridle and reins are for…
He narrows down the list of possible suspects to his electric blanket, and calls Sears headquarters to ask for the list of people who have complained about the blanket. They won't give it to him, so he and Alicia hatch a plan to break into the legal department and get the list of names.
They sneak in and Bobby starts calling through the list. He reaches a woman named Sheila who had the same thing happen to her three years ago… and it hasn't gone away yet. Yikes. She promises him to secrecy, but…
Lost in my Memories
The memories instantly rush back to my mind when I begin to read the book my mom used to read to me. The stories we shared will never leave my memory. I am packing up to head to the cemetery to visit my mom, on my list of things to bring with me is a pillow, a sleeping bag and blanket, so I can take a nap if needed, and last but definitely not least, Herald and the Purple Crayon, which always stays next to my bed. As I hop in the car the only thing that I double check that I…

these dreams are birthed and grown in the no limits, safe space of the blanket fort.
Forts offer a world where kids explore interests and personalities while discovering what they want their future to look like. Will it be filled with numbers and calculations? Does it involve mixing materials to prove theories? Do visions of architecture and engineering feats fill their minds?
Today, the fastest growing, best-paid careers are STEM-related. Science, technology, engineering and math prove…
that outbreaks remain a serious public health risk in areas where recurrent outbreaks have been observed for a long time. Therefore, it is crucial to evaluate the effectiveness of the control intervention of diseases using mathematical modelling, especially for those such as Ebola virus for which no specific treatment or vaccine exists. Researchers have studied and applied numerous models and algorithms for the different types of disease outbreaks. One of the models that is widely used in the…

Survival Uses for Mylar Blankets
First developed by NASA in 1964 Mylar blankets or also known as space blankets or thermal blankets are made from a thin sheet of plastic usually PET film that is coated with a metallic reflecting agent. Typically the blankets are gold or silver in color and the material is designed to reflect up to 97 percent of radiated heat. The blankets are designed to be waterproof as well.
The reflective nature makes a Mylar blanket a literal lifesaver in cold weather…
