    With the continuous advancement of technology, online transactions have gradually become the predominant mode of commerce in society. Currently, a new type of transaction facilitator has emerged in online transactions, known as electronic agents. This specialized concept and its legal definition originated in Western countries, and China has also adopted this concept. Electronic agents cannot be construed as natural persons, nor can they be fashioned as legal entities. They are merely tools capable of executing the will of individuals, albeit with some distinctions from conventional transaction tools. Establishing the legal status of electronic agents can reduce conflicts and contradictions related to online transactions in our current lives, facilitate the development of automated electronic transactions, and promote the rapid progress of our society. Currently, legislation in China in this regard remains uncharted territory, yet our lives are already enveloped by these online transactions. This has resulted in the inability to reach a unanimous resolution for many disputes involving electronic agents in our daily lives, leaving judges to resolve issues based on fundamental legislative principles or relevant legal provisions. The party employing the machine is often an organization with superior cognitive abilities compared to individuals. Therefore, we should consider electronic agents as their employees, and the actions they take should be the responsibility of legal or non-legal entities. It is essential to prioritize the protection of the weaker party as much as possible.

    Implementation science is a systematic research methodology aimed at facilitating the application of research findings and other evidence-based practices into clinical daily routines. It has become highly relevant to scientific research. As the concept of "implementation science" deepens, related theories and practical methods continue to evolve, leading to rapid advancements in implementation science. However, in China, there has been limited application and slower development of implementation research. This study approaches the subject from a problem-oriented perspective and systematically describes several commonly used theoretical frameworks, methodologies, implementation strategies, and applications in implementation research. The goal is to support the development of implementation science in China, promote its integration into evidence-based medicine, and provide reference materials for conducting implementation research more effectively.

    To anticipate the fluctuations in per capita disposable income among Hubei Province inhabitants for the subsequent biennium, a dataset spanning from 2005 to 2022 was culled. Employed in this study were three distinct time series prognostication methodologies: Exponential Smoothing (Holt-Winter), Autoregressive Moving Average (ARMA), and Autoregressive Integrated Moving Average (ARIMA). These techniques were applied to envision the forthcoming trajectory of per capita disposable income for the province's residents. By computing diverse metrics to assess predictive discrepancies—like the Mean Absolute Error (MAE) and Root Mean Square Error (RMSE)—the effectiveness of the assorted models was gauged, culminating in the selection of the ARIMA model due to its superior performance. Capitalizing on this, approximations for per capita disposable income during 2023 and 2024 were extrapolated. The resultant prognoses project a sustained and noteworthy uptick in per capita disposable income for urban denizens of Hubei Province in the forthcoming biennial span. Ultimately, the findings were translated into actionable policy suggestions and deductions, rendering them highly pertinent for the dissection of Hubei Province's economic evolution.

    Sleep is such a complex and dynamic process and dream that it still is a scientific enigma. Over more than a century of research has established a wide range of dream-relevant theories, whereas, no one has yet reached an accurate conclusion about the function and meaning of dreams. So, in this project, I desire to review the relationship between sleep and dream and illustrate what is the function of sleep and dream. Firstly, is to state the specific processes of sleep. Humans undergo REM (Rapid Eye Movement) and NREM (non-rapid-eye-movement) during sleep. Additionally, there are various functions of REM, NREM sleep, and dreams which remain controversial. The third ambition of this project is to discuss whether dreams can act as a kind of therapy for mental disorders. And evaluate the effectiveness of lucid dreaming therapy (LDT) in patients suffering from mental disorders.
