    Title: Subjective Effect Reports of Food
    Creator: Schulte, Erica M
    Description: Abstract Objectives The current study investigates which foods may be most implicated in addictive-like eating by examining how nutritionally diverse foods relate to loss of control consumption and various subjective effect reports. Subjective effect reports assess the abuse liabilities of substances and may similarly provide insight into which foods may be reinforcing in a manner that triggers an addictive-like response for some individuals. Design Cross-sectional. Setting Online community. Participants 507 participants (n = 501 used in analyses) recruited through Amazon MTurk. Measurements Participants (n = 501) self-reported how likely they were to experience a loss of control over their consumption of 30 nutritionally diverse foods and rated each food on five subjective effect report questions that assess the abuse liability of substances (liking, pleasure, craving, averseness, intensity). Hierarchical cluster analytic techniques were used to examine how foods grouped together based on each question. Results Highly processed foods, with added fats and/or refined carbohydrates, clustered together and were associated with greater loss of control, liking, pleasure, and craving. The clusters yielded from the subjective effect reports assessing liking, pleasure, and craving were most similar to clusters formed based on loss of control over consumption, whereas the clusters yielded from averseness and intensity did not meaningfully differentiate food items. Conclusion The present work applies methodology used to assess the abuse liability of substances to understand whether foods may vary in their potential to be associated with addictive-like consumption. Highly processed foods (e.g., pizza, chocolate) appear to be most related to an indicator of addictive-like eating (loss of control) and several subjective effect reports (liking, pleasure, craving). Thus, these foods may be particularly reinforcing and capable of triggering an addictive-like response in some individuals. Future research is warranted to understand whether highly processed foods are related to these indicators of abuse liability at a similar magnitude as addictive substances.

    Title: The KSU-UMD Dataset for Benchmarking for Audio Forensic Algorithms
    Creator: Hafiz Malik and Muhammad Khurran Khan, King Saud University
    Description: Details of the microphone used for data collection, acoustic environment in which data was collected, and naming convention used are provided here. 1 - Microphones Used: The microphones used to collect this dataset belong to 7 different trademarks. Table (1) illustrates the number of used Mics of different trademarks and models. Table 1: Trademarks and models of Mics Mic Trademark Mic Model # of Mics Shure SM-58 3 Electro-Voice RE-20 2 Sennheiser MD-421 3 AKG C 451 2 AKG C 3000 B 2 Neumann KM184 2 Coles 4038 2 The t.bone MB88U 6 Total 22 2- Environment Description: A brief description of the 6 environments in which the dataset was collected is presented here: (i) Soundproof room: a small room (nearly 1.5m × 1.5m × 2m), which is closed and completely isolated. With an exception of a small window in the front side of the room which is made of glass, all the walls of the room are made of wood and covered by a layer of sponge from the inner side, and the floor is covered by carpet. (ii) Class room: standard class room (6m × 5m × 3m). (iii) Lab: small lab (4m × 4m × 3m). All the walls are made of glasses and the floor is covered by carpet. The lab contains 9 computers. (iv) Stairs: is in the second floor. The place of recording is 3m × 5m (v) Parking: is the college parking. (vi) Garden: is an open space outside the buildings. 3- Naming Convention: This set of rules were followed as a naming convention to give each file in the dataset a unique name: (i) The file name is 19 characters long, and consists of 5 sections separated by underscores. (ii) The first section is of 3 characters indicates the Microphone trademark. (iii) The second section of 4 characters indicates the microphone model as in table (2). (iv) The third section of 2 characters indicates a specific microphone within a set of microphones of the same trademark and model, since we have more than one microphone of the same trademark and model. (v) The fourth section of 2 characters indicates the environment, where Soundproof room --> 01 Class room --> 02 Lab --> 03 Stairs --> 04 Parking --> 05 Garden --> 06 (vi) The fifth section of 2 characters indicates the language, where Arabic --> 01 English --> 02 Chinese --> 03 Indonesian --> 04 (vii) The sixth section of 2 characters indicates the speaker.
