Abstract
In sentiment analysis the polarity of a text is often assessed recurring to sentiment lexicons, which usually consist of verbs and adjectives with an associated positive or negative value. However, in short informal texts like tweets or web comments, the absence of such words does not necessarily indicates that the text lacks opinion. Tweets like "First Paris, now Brussels... What can we do?" imply opinion in spite of not using words present in sentiment lexicons, but rather due to the general sentiment or public opinion associated with terms in a specific time and domain. In order to complement general sentiment dictionaries with those domain and time specific terms, we propose a novel system for lexicon expansion that automatically extracts the more relevant and up to date terms on several different domains and then assesses their sentiment through Twitter. Experimental results on our system show an 82% accuracy on extracting domain and time specific terms and 80% on correct polarity assessment. The achieved results provide evidence that our lexicon expansion system can extract and determined the sentiment of terms for domain and time specific corpora in a fully automatic form.

Abstract
Childhood obesity is according to the World Health Organization one of the most concerning problems today. Educating children to a healthier lifestyle is a difficult task due to the lack of interest or concern that they demonstrate. The interest that children have in technology and the time they spent online in games or simply surfing the web may be seen as an opportunity to instill knowledge about healthy eating and healthy lifestyle. There are already several online health counseling websites but it seems to exist a lack of such platforms directly towards to children. Afina-te website is an online platform that aims to monitor and educate children to a healthier lifestyle through the exposition of information, interactive applications and educational games. It is also capable of provide feedback about what users eat and the exercise they practice. This paper describes the development and resulting health counseling website.
