The virtual avatar is a principal way as media for communicating language and affective feelings in virtual environment. As similar purpose, this study evaluates user's visual feeling according to the changes of iris color and pupil size of virtual avatar which is considered as new factors for representing realistic avatar. Virtual avatars were configured by pupil accommodation and iris color(green, brown). After presenting above image to 32 participants, a questionnaire(18 items) based on previous studies was created, and reported as a 5-point scale. Experimental result showed that the case of adopting pupil accommodation induced more realistic visual feeling of subjects. This result can be regarded as a basis for designing realistic virtual avatar by confirming the effectiveness of pupil accommodation of avatar in terms of representing visual presence.

Recently, many researches have been focused on multi-view video applications and services such as wireless video surveillance networks, wireless video sensor networks and wireless mobile video. In multi-view video signal processing, to exploit the strong correlation between images acquired by different cameras plays great role in developing a core technique of multi-view video coding. This paper proposes an adaptive multi-view video interpolation technique which is applicable for multi-view distributed video coding without requiring any cooperation amongst the cameras. The proposed algorithm estimates the non-linear moving blocks and employs disparity compensated view prediction, and then fills in the unreliable blocks. Through computer simulations, it is shown that the proposed method outperforms the conventional methods.

Recent advancements in the IT industry have made daily life more convenient than ever before. In particular, studies have focused on the position detection of individuals using the GPS in smartphones, and this application has been utilized actively in emergency rescue organizations. However, existing methods send the location information of a user to a predetermined guardian set by the user or to a control center when the user enters into or deviates from a predetermined space. Such spaces are created by an arbitrary radius, thereby making it difficult to set a detailed area by using an existing radius-area creation method in an unstructured space and path with a specific road, such as for trekking, amusement parks, or mountaineering. This study proposes a novel method for setting up an area by connecting multiple radii to improve the existing radius-area creation method in order to easily set a detailed area in smart devices or on the Internet. In addition, an optimization method for resource use is proposed by comparing the operation results in which a user's location is detected by using the proposed location-based area setup method and deviation detection.

The recent small-scaled family form is making a great influence on sharing pictures of their children with family as well. As parents are usually taking pictures of their children with their smart-phones, the form of sharing pictures with families through SNS or text messages or uploading pictures of their children in mobile mini-homepage is becoming prominent these days. But when events of an each family member taking pictures occur, such as in 'the hundredth day party' or 'first birthday party' and exchange them through text messages or SNS, it would be difficult to gather their children's picture and view them all together other than the ones that they took themselves as it is difficult to send each and every picture. Also, another problem of managing pictures occur because the source of picture all differ from each other. There fore, to solve these problems, this study intends to suggest a co-family managerial photo management mobile application UI for family members to participate in gathering and organizing pictures that they took with their own smart-phones in a specific space and produce a mobile album.

Industrialization and urbanization have led automobiles to transform into more than just modes of transportation; they have become daily necessities as well as extensions of living spaces where a variety of activities can be done and automotive applications of the latest information technology are accelerated. Though material abundance has increased in the modern society, the conflicts and the stress emerging from a social structure focused on competition have increased as well. Such lifestyles generate a need for personal space and media content for healing the body and the mind. This research explores the automotive application of video content with the goal of refreshing the minds of the passengers. To this end, previous studies have investigated the emotional effect of videos, focusing on the responses of diverse groups of adults (age group of 20 to 60) who frequently used automobiles, which had video displays installed in them. The results showed that watching video contents on a full window inside a car influenced the creation of positive feelings7 and emotional satisfaction. The research attempts to study the methods of providing video contents and the effects of watching them that could aid the emotional well-being of passengers, and presents the possibility of emotional satisfaction created by a convergence of cars and multimedia contents in the future.

The horro movie which was released in 2003,
was a box office hit drawing audiences totaling 3,140,000 people. Then, there were partial opinions that it was difficult to understand the content of the movie. However, it was most favorably received in the horror movies which were released before and after 2003. The 4 main characters in the movie are a family. The family conflicts begin as the dad has an affair. Muhyeon(the dad)'s infidelity leads his wife to kill herself. The suicide of the wife and mom again leads Suyeon(the younger sister) to be dead. At this moment, Suyeon's death is related to Eunju(the step mom). Sumi(the older sister) is deeply hurt by the fact that Eunju left her younger sister's death after she was dead. But at the same time, she realizes that she is also related to Eunju's act. And she felt guilty about her younger sister's death. Eunju was also hurt by Sumi's biting remarks. However, she feels guilty about the fact that she made Suyeon be dead. Director Jiun Kim said in the interview when it was released, "this movie is about hurts and guilt among families." These hurts and guilt are expressed by horror images that imagination and reality are mixed. Hurts are expressed by virtual images and guilt is done by real images. This paper presented still pictures which explain the virtual and real images and examined what hurts and guilt mean. And it described the symbolic meanings of three media which cause conflicts among main characters.

This study focuses on clarifying narrative strategy of the epilogue system of TV nature documentary. TV nature documentary epilogue system is different from making film. Because it has stories about production team's daily life and incidents while they make films in nature. Therefore, TV documentary epilogue system has distinctive narrative features comparing to the documentary itself. This study analyzes into the distinctive narrative features of TV documentary epilogue system. According to Frye, there are four types of narrative based on narrative structure. 'The tears of Antarctica' has achieved reconciliation between nature and human by it's narrative structure of comic romance and comic character. Therefore, comic romance's narrative features of TV documentary epilogue system overcomes tragic features of the documentary itself.

Europeans experienced the horror and cruelty of war through the first and second World Wars. They began to raise fundamental questions and doubt about the preexisting World Order of God and humans leading to the birth of Existentialism. The Theater of the Absurd is one of the genres in theater resulting from the existentialist theories. The Theater of the Absurd has a format opposed to the traditional Realist Theater and emphasize the absurdity of human and society's existence. In particular, Fernando Arrabal who is a French Absurdist playwright, expressed the absurd human conditions using his unique forms and contents and his work 'Fando et Lis' depicts the absurdity of the adult world through the eyes of a child. Many unrealistic elements typical and inherent in the Absurdist plays are present in his work. Especially, the actors were required to apply not only the realistic acting approach but also to study and analyze characteristics of all Absurdist plays and internalize them based on the creative foundation of recreation. Then, they were asked to examine the characters' personality, emotions, and actions and think hard about creating an unrealistic action of voice and movements. This creative process by actors is a must in developing the reliable and trustworthy Absurdist acting.

Social media is a general term for online services by which users share opinions, perspectives, and experiences. It supports interactions between users in sharing contents on it and weak ties among them play an important role in the process. This exploratory study attempts to identify crucial factors of establishing weak ties between social media users in the perspective of social network theory and uncertainty reduction theory. We collected data through diary study and in-depth interview and analyzed it following grounded theory approach. As a result, social media users more actively interacted each other or shared contents based on weak ties, compared to strong ties. In addition, similarity, self-disclosure, and relevance appeared to facilitate establishment of weak ties, by reducing psychological distance between social media users and perceived uncertainty of them.

Korea's film industry has been growing over the last 10 years, and there has been much attention to the antecedents of film box office sales both academic and business communities. So far, previous research which explained success factors of film or movie mainly focused on 3 stages, production, distribution and screening. However, these 3 steps are heavily vertically integrated in Korea's firm industry unlike United States. Almost 130% of movie theaters are multiplex chain and operated by film production companies such as CJ and Lotte Entertainment In this situation, film sales are likely to he affected by movie theaters own facilities or location factors rather than movie contents. Based. on resource-based view and S-C-P paradigm, the authors examined "whether movie theater's facilities factors and trade area factors such as accessibility, competitive situation, and population have effect to movie theater's sales revenues. The results showed that the average occupancy of theater is the most important factor to movie theaters sales in both large and small cities. In large cities, movie theater's facilities factors which included vibration seat special sound system, premium movie theater, VIP lounge are relatively important than trade area factors. In contrast, in small cities, location factors and accessibility are the most important factors to movie theaters sales. We discuss the managerial and theoretical implication for the results and the specific limitations are suggested at the end of the paper.

Questionnaire survey asking 30 items was carried out during 3 months from May to July, 2013. The number of the overall respondents were about 500. Overall scores of hath degree of the basic knowledge and of the attitude related with radiation safety could he procured through analysis of the questionnaire data. Results were as followings: The workers of the higher academic level, the larger of the accumulated training time and the worker's personal antecedents, the more accredited license holders showed the larger scores of the basic knowledge of radiation as well as the attitude related with the radiation safety. The group having higher basic knowledge also showed the higher score in attitude related with radiation safety. The overall scores obtained from the radiation workers in industrial sector were relatively lower, in general, than those of the other sectors. These results suggest that the training program might better be separately implemented. A specific training program implementation might be desirable particularly for the workers in industrial sectors so as not only to reduce radiation risks of workers but also to mitigate the uneasiness arising among the people at large.

A Critical Evaluation of George Lindbeck's Cultural-Linguistic Theory of Religion
Je, Haejong ;
The Journal of the Korea Contents Association, volume 14, issue 4, 2014, Pages 456~466
DOI : 10.5392/JKCA.2014.14.04.456
This is a study of George Lindbeck's postliberalism that views religion as a cultural-linguistic approach. Knowing that the conceptual-propositional approach of the traditional Christian theology and the experiential-expressive approach of liberalism cannot be a solution for the post-modem religious phenomenon, George Lindbeck proposes an alternative. He proposes a cultural-linguistic approach to overcome the previous approaches. The first insight of Lindbeck's postliberalism is to understand religion as culture or language, because human beings become acquainted with a religion as they learn a language. The second insight comes out of the first, to understand doctrine as grammar. If we understand religion and doctrine this way the troubles and conflicts among religions will be resolved naturally, because each religion can be interpreted in its own system just as a language cannot be said to be good or bad, right or wrong. This approach makes several contributions as follows: it promotes a dialogue among religions, it emphasizes practice; and it preserves the Bible as an authoritative theological text. However it also brings many limitations as follows: it emphasizes the church's interpretation rather than the text's own interpretation; it views the truth simply as coherence; it promotes radical relativism and elitism; and through theological eschatology he makes his theory return to a propositionalism. Accordingly, the researcher concludes that Lindbeck's cultural-linguistic theory of religion is not an alternative that overcomes the limitations of theological conservativism and liberalism.
The case study of Topophilia's Role as a Motivator to Learn and an Analysis of Educational Resources

Topophilia refers to emotional bonding such as attachment to or nostalgia for one's home town, which is remembered or imagined as a beautiful and happy paradise experienced in youth. The time spent in one's home town may have been short, but the associated memories of it are strong and enduring. These can later act as a strong motivator to learn if the correlated emotions are positive. According to archival research conducted on Jooyoung Chung's life, his home town and the things found therein, such as cows, were the principal objects of his topophilia, and later became the driving forces behind his success story. The same applies to Dvorak. Dvorak sublimated his nostalgia for his home town by composing a piece of music on hearing the sound of a train. We can discover diverse rhythms in nature such as sunrises and sunsets, the changing seasons, and even our heart beat. If a melody is added to the rhythm, it transforms into art. And if we seek harmony and principles, it becomes science. In this study, Jeonbuk's nature, places, food, and arts, as represented in its educational resources, are analysed for their ability to give rise to topophilia. To gain some experience of this feeling we recommend that you visit the Jeonju Hanok Village, the value of Gochujang, reverse icespike on Mai Mountain or enjoy the works of the painter Book Choi.
