    All participants have been involved in a longitudinal study from infancy to adulthood starting from 1983. This longitudinal study involved the participants to fill out questionnaires in late adolescence and early adulthood. The missing data ranged from 0 to 24.6%, and was imputed using full information maximum likelihood (FIML). Questions on fundraising, conservation, helping (volunteering) and social change behaviors (involvement in political or lobby groups) were selected to form the latent variables of adolescent eudaimonic behaviors at 19-20 years. Questions on emotional competence, responsibility, self-control, autonomy and planfulness were selected to form the variables to assess the emotional competency of young adulthood at 23-24 years. Stress, anxiety and depressive symptoms were assessed in both age groups using the Depression Anxiety Stress Scales, which involves seven items relating to depressive symptoms. All questions were assessed using a 4 point scale rated from 1=never to 5 =always or a yes or no answer. AMOS 16.01.1 software was used to evaluate the data and estimations were based on a covariance matrix and used maximum likelihood estimates. Potential gender differences in the relationship were examined using…

    The first basic language modelling approach in IR is the Query Likelihood Model (QLM) to estimate the probability of generating the query terms as a random sample from the document. In particular, the probability $P(d/q)$ of a document $d$ conditioning on query $q$ as likelihood relevant represent the QLM models citep{ponte1998sigir}. Applying Baye 's rule on $P(d/q)$ to get: egin{equation} label{BayesQLM} P(d/q) = frac{P(q/d)P(d)}{P(q)} end{equation} where $P(q)$ could be ignored as it is…

    The intercept is significant at a 1%. This can be understood as whenever p and q are equal to zero, the intercept can be read as the sample mean; however in this case where p and q are bigger than zero it will still be close to the sample mean but usually not identical as it is not the maximum likelihood estimate whenever p and q are bigger than zero. The AR(1) coefficient is significant at 10% with estimate of 0.31523, interpreted as a correlation of the current period GDP with the previous…
