World continues to face stern challenges due to swiftly technology changes and consequences of that. Besides growing of information technology some new pattern of activities in recent decades such as playing video and computer games widespread which effect of them on users especially young consumers become new psychologists, educators and parent s source of concerns. In the years ahead, it s clear that this entertainment media will have extra main role in the social and educational experiences of children and adolescents. By virtue of the popularity of video and computer games, eradicating them from leisure time seems impossible. Only by filling the gaps in our knowledge and conquering the ignorance, we will be able to ascertain how deal with the difficulties which we already confront and the ones we predict to face. This book is based on an investigation into level of abnormal behavior symptoms due to using video and computer games and The result especially should be useful to parents , psychologists and policymakers or anyone else who maybe authorized to monitoring the content of video and computer games which produced or available in market.
Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Private Michael J. Caboose is a main fictional character in Rooster Teeth Productions'' machinima comic science fiction video series Red vs. Blue. Voiced by Joel Heyman, Caboose first appears in episode 3 of season 1 as a new recruit for the Blood Gulch Blue Team, a group of soldiers engaged in a futuristic civil war against the Red Team. Caboose is portrayed as one of the most eccentric characters in the series. Consistently shown to be mentally abnormal, his behavior varies from merely somewhat dim-witted in Season 1 to almost completely divorced from reality in Season 3 and onwards. His unusual behavior frequently earns him the scorn and disrespect of the series'' other characters. In part due to positive early fan reaction, Burnie Burns, the main writer for the series, focused the storyline on Caboose and Donut (Dan Godwin), the Red Team''s rookie.
Recently, a great amount of visual information has been generated and stored through computer, TV, Internet, surveillance cameras and digital libraries. In the meanwhile, however, people are interested only in meaningful events such as sports highlights and abnormal activities in surveillance. To fast deliver such events to people, the automatic recognition of them must be required. The video event recognition begins with the decomposition of a video into smaller segments called shots. To efficiently characterize a shot, we extract temporal-scale invariant key-frames (temporal interest points: TIPs) corresponding to motion discontinuous instants that give rise to attention in human visual system. Using the image features (color, edge, and motion) included in TIPs we can recognize and categorize the meaningful events, for example, golf highlights and indoor human activities. This work could be employed in content-based video retrieval systems on the Internet, and should be useful to beginners and professionals who study scale space theory in computer vision, or anyone else who may be interested in video indexing and retrieval.
Surveillance systems have become increasingly popular. Full involvement of human operators has led to shortcomings, e.g. high labor cost, limited capability for multiple screens, inconsistency in long-duration, etc. Intelligent surveillance systems (ISSs) can supplement or even replace traditional ones. In ISSs, computer vision, pattern recognition, and artificial intelligence technologies are used to identify abnormal behaviours in videos. They present the development of real-time behaviour-based intelligent surveillance systems. The book focuses on the detection of individual abnormal behaviour based on learning and the analysis of dangerous crowd behaviour based on texture and optical flow. Practical systems include a real-time face classification and counting system, a surveillance robot system that utilizes video and audio information for intelligent interaction, and a robust person counting system for crowded environments.
Closed Circuit TeleVision (CCTV) cameras have been increasingly deployed pervasively in public spaces including retail centres and shopping malls. Intelligent video analytics aims to automatically analyze content of massive amount of public space video data and has been one of the most active areas of computer vision research in the last two decades. Current focus of video analytics research has been largely on detecting alarm events and abnormal behaviours for public safety and security applications. However, increasingly CCTV installations have also been exploited for gathering and analyzing business intelligence information, in order to enhance marketing and operational efficiency. For example, in retail environments, surveillance cameras can be utilised to collect statistical information about shopping behaviour and preference for marketing (e.g., how many people entered a shop, how many females/males or which age groups of people showed interests to a particular product, how long did they stay in the shop, and what are the frequent paths), and to measure operational efficiency for improving customer experience. Video analytics has the enormous potential for non-security oriented commercial applications. This book presents the latest developments on video analytics for business intelligence applications. It provides both academic and commercial practitioners an understanding of the state-of-the-art and a resource for potential applications and successful practice.

Transitional Urology is designed to fill a critical gap that exists in the published literature by comprehensively addressing the urological challenges facing adolescents and adults with complex congenital anomalies of the genitourinary system. It provides a valuable resource to pediatricians and pediatric urologists facing urological management issues beyond their expertise in their aging patients as well as technical guidance to adult urologists who may have had little or no experience caring for patients with a congenital condition. This work will service as a field guide to congenitalism, providing a “how to” approach to guide the urologist using real clinical examples for the most common and challenging urological problems encountered. It also provides a framework for the transition process from pediatric to adult-centered care, with a special emphasis on the multidisciplinary nature needed to provide patient-centered care. Specific conditions that require special consideration, including myelomeningocele, exstrophy, posterior urethral valves, and hypospadias are highlighted. Topics considered common in the general urology practice- like infertility and sexual dysfunction are addressed within the context of patients with neurological or anatomical complexity. In addition, this text reviews urological complaints for which basic clinical algorithms are well-established within the context of a congenitally-abnormal bladder. Chapters discuss how and when special testing like video urodynamnics and positional fluoroscopy may be warranted to provide critical diagnostic guidance. The text also review how typical age-related urological phenomena, like elevated PSA, hypogonadism, and BPH, may present in this subset of patients and how treatment of these conditions may be different than the general population.
