The effects of disruptive communication on user engagement in the collaborative consumption model
Software is designed to simplify the lives of its users. The rapid growth of social media and the technology industry has foreseen a plethora of different types of software used as a service, with the aim of engaging its users and creating a form of revenue. With an abundance of software applications from which to choose from, this paper looks into the types of communication between the user and the application itself, and how automation and disruptive notification are intertwined to form a successful application.
Through the modification of the kernel on a Ubuntu system, we managed to solve the n-Queens problem after changing the default time-slice, swappiness, latency and wakeup-granularity to different values and testing the problem.

Why it's good that Soulstealer Vayne is so hard to get - a statistical Analysis
I analyzed the Hextech-Crafting in a Stochastic Simulation with 10 Million Players and found that you're going to make more Riot Points than you spend (in value) and thats without counting Champs. I've made some assumptions, which can be found down in the paper itself for those interested. For everyone else: If you're trying to maximize your RP-Net-Worth stack up on Hextech Chests.

Operating Systems Project: Kernel Optimization
An attempt of achieving a Kernel optimaization using Ubuntu 16..04.1 LTS, Phoronix Test Suite and different value changes and tests for an internal Kernel variable: the runtime value.

In this paper we try to make an improvement for the Linux kernel, by modifying kernel variables.

Running Realtime Scheduling Analysis
The Linux kernel controls the way tasks (or processes) are managed in the running system. The task scheduler, sometimes called process scheduler, is the part of the kernel that decides which task to run next. In this project its analyzed the behavior of scheduler by changing a default value from the runtime scheduling. The default value is 950000µs, or 0.95 seconds for the sched\_rt\_runtime\_us or scheduler realtime running variable. Meaning that 5% of the CPU time is reserved for processes that don't run under a real-time or deadline scheduling policy. This value in this file specifies how much of the "period" time can be used by all real-time and deadline scheduled processes on the system. The AIO-Stress which shows the obtained results in the different tests is an a-synchronous I/O benchmark created by SuSE which is is a German Linux distribution provider and business unit of Novell, Inc.
Effects of Climate Change on Canadian Forest Fires
This study aimed to determine the effects of climate change on forest fire trends in Canada by measuring correlations between weather conditions and the frequency and size of forest fires. Upon identifying the correlations, a model was created to understand future forest fire trends. The purpose of this study was to prevent the increasing trend of forest fires and devise solutions to reduce their damages. The data obtained from the Canadian National Fire Database underwent a linear regression and a machine learning algorithm to respectively predict and correlate weather conditions with future forest fire trends. It was concluded that temperature and wind speed experienced a positive correlation with forest fire frequency and size and precipitation experienced a negative correlation. To reduce the harmful effects of forest fires, cloud seeding can be used to create more precipitation and wind farms can be built to lower wind speed and attract lightning. However, more research and stricter policies directly targeting climate change are necessary for long term stability or decrease in forest fire trends.
