A number of examples of caftans uncovered at sites from a variety of different regions reveal the extent of these cross-cultural influences and exchanges, often reflected in design motifs, the materials used, and the context in which the clothing was exchanged and worn. (...) For example, at an Alan burial site in the North West Caucuses dating from 600 - 800 CE, 16 complete silk caftans have been uncovered. The origin of the silk is a mixture of Sogdian, Chinese, and Byzantine with the caftans themselves believed to have been payment for local customs duties. (...) Similarly, a bright red and yellow woollen caftan was uncovered at a grave in Yingpan in the Southern Taklamakan desert dating from the 4th- 5th centuries CE.

A study carried out by ITU1 has helped to identify economic models used by regulators in 27 countries of varying levels of development to promote deployment in uncovered rural areas. The ITU document found that 33 per cent of the countries under study use a free-market economic model, i.e. a mobile service provider is free to decide whether or not to install a radio base in a rural area, based purely on level of competition. In addition, 22 per cent of the countries use an economic model based on the granting of capital subsidies to the existing operator for development in uncovered rural areas, while 44 per cent of the countries under study use a model based on a capital subsidy and an additional ongoing subsidy as an incentive for deployment by providers in uncovered rural areas. 1 Telecommunications/ICTs for rural and remote areas, ITU, 2014 33% 9 countries 22% 6 countries 44% 12 countries Economic models used in rural areas Free market Capital subsidy provided to existing operator Capital subsidy and ongoing subsidy provided to existing operator 2 Figure 1: Economic models used to promote deployment in rural areas.

Produced: CRDM In addition, Figure 2 shows the different economic models used by the 27 countries2 under study, disaggregated by level of development. 27 per cent of developing countries, such as Ecuador, use a free-market economic model, while another 27 per cent use an economic model based on capital subsidy grants to the existing operator and 47 per cent use a model based on a capital subsidy and an additional ongoing subsidy as an incentive for deployment by providers in uncovered rural areas.

(...) Great efforts such as the Genocide Convention also highlight the importance of justice, international criminal law and the pivotal role that individuals play in uncovering systematic crimes and mass atrocities. Holding states and individuals accountable for atrocities is part of our work here at the UN.

Often these are evident in the forms, shapes, materials, and design motifs present on highly prized trade objects which have been uncovered at sites ranging from tombs, palaces, shipwrecks, and religious sites such as caves etc. (...) This hoard, one of the largest ever uncovered in China, was found in 1970 in Hejia village located just south of the city centre about 1 km from the former site of Chang’an’s Western Market.  (...) The find was one of the largest collections of buried treasures ever uncovered in China and one of the most beautiful collections of Silk Roads artefacts reflecting influences from China and various parts of Central Asia.

In addition to the uncovering of trade wares from archaeological sites at Butuan, the discovery of a number of plank-built and edge-pegged wooden open water boats (known as balangay) within the same sites further attests to the significance of the area to Philippine and Southeast Asian Maritime Silk Roads history. Around nine balangay boats have been uncovered at the Butuan sites that range in date from the 10 th to the 13 th century CE.   (...) From slightly later periods, ceramics from modern day Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, as well as glassware from the Iranian plateau, have also been uncovered, again indicating the extent to which the Philippines archipelago was integrated into the Silk Roads Maritime trade network.

Our Approach: Data science techniques allow us to use methods like network science and machine learning to uncover patterns and insights that are hard for humans to see. (...) What the Research Shows: Through this research, we uncovered: A network of relationships between countries and their constitutions. (...) Using machine learning techniques, we were able to explicitly uncover  four communities of countries whose constitutions strongly resemble and influence one another: UNICEF Innovation We also uncovered a  strong hierarchy of legal provisions : for instance, laws providing for trade unions tend to offer support for laws on child employment to come later, suggesting that the former help the latter to move from being fringe rights to accepted rights (see the growth in the range of legal rights over time below).

When the subject moves, some occluded background reappears in the scene. Such uncovered background part usually has to be encoded. (...) A further analysis of the situation shows that the requirements for the INTRA mode come from two different sources: one is for the newly appearing objects and the other is for the uncovered background. However, as the latter may have already been transmitted in earlier scenes there is a chance to recover such uncovered background efficiently. (...) The experimental results show that the proposed method can improve both the image quality for uncovered background regions as well as coding efficiency.
