Climate Change and Industrial Policy
Wim Naudé
Sustainability , 2011, DOI: 10.3390/su3071003
Abstract: Industrial policy (IP) can make an important contribution to both environmental and social sustainability. The purpose of this paper is to explore the new rationale for IP due to climate change and to determine its implications for the how of industrial policy. Five implications are discussed, namely the need for international coordination of IPs; for putting human-development, and not emission targets, as the overriding objective of low-carbon IP; of stimulating innovation for energy efficiency, energy diversification, and carbon capture and storage; and for aligning IP with trade policies. Finally the funding needs of low-carbon IPs are discussed, and the importance of private sector funding emphasized.
The Belhar Confession and Church and Society: A Comparative Reading in Five Statements
P Naudé
Acta Theologica , 2012,
Abstract: This essay offers a close comparative reading of the Belhar confession and the DRC witness document, Church and Society. It is argued (in the first statement) that although on the surface there are many similarities in content between the two documents, they are in fact theologically quite distinct (statements two to five). It is hoped that the DRC’s decision in 2011 to start a process of adopting the Belhar confession represents a return to its Reformed roots in the confessing church tradition.
Is prophetic discourse adequate to address global economic justice?
PJ Naudé
HTS Theological Studies/Teologiese Studies , 2011,
Abstract: This article outlined key features of prophetic discourse and investigated whether this form of moral discourse adequately addresses issues of economic injustice. It is shown that the strength of prophetic discourse is its ability to denounce instances of injustice whilst at the same time announcing a God-willed alternative future. The ‘preferential option for the poor’ in Latin American liberation theologies is treated as a case study of the influence of prophetic discourse in contexts of perceived economic injustice. Also the core weaknesses of prophetic discourse are investigated, specifically its incomplete moral argument, weak moral analyses, silence on transition measures, and its inability to take a positive stance on reforms in the system from which itself benefits. In the final section it is concluded that prophetic discourse plays an indispensable role in addressing issues of global economic justice, but – taken by itself – it is not an adequate form of moral discourse to address concrete matters of justice.
R d f r uppr ttandet av ett bibliotek
Naudé, Gabriel
Svensk Biblioteksforskning , 2006,
Abstract: Detta r d tillkom enkom med anledning av en diskussion, som f r n gra m nader sedan utspelade sig i det bibliotek, som tillh r den, som d l t det bli till min f rdel. Jag hade inte t nkt dra det ur dammet i min studerkammare f r att lyfta fram det i ljuset, om jag inte varit vertygad om att b ttre kunna tillfredsst lla nyfikenheten hos m nga av mina v nner, som bad mig om avskrifter. Av den anledningen beslutade jag mig slutligen f r att g ra det, lika mycket f r att befria mig fr n kostnaderna f r och ol genheten fr n att anv nda kopister, som naturligtvis f r att kunna tillm tesg allm nheten, f r vilken, om detta r d inte r tillfredsst llande, det tminstone kan tj na som v gledning f r dem som nskar stadkomma n got b ttre, s att man inte l ngre skall vara ber vad ett hj lpmedel, som tycks saknas. Och f r att avhj lpa detta r jag den f rste som vill bryta isen och utstaka en v g f r dem som skulle vilja b rja p nytt, n r det passar. Om ni k nner tacksamhet mot mig f r detta, s m jag ber mma er v lvilja och er h vlighet, om icke, s ber jag er tminstone att f rl ta mina egna och boktryckarens fel

Op ’n mespunt. Die ontvangs van Johannes Calvyn in die denke van Willie Jonker
P. Naudé
Nederduitse Gereformeerde Teologiese Tydskrif , 2012, DOI: 10.5952/51-3-82
Abstract: This paper, originally read as the fourth Willie Jonker commemoration lecture (October 2009), explores how the central tenets of Jonker’s theology have been fundamentally shaped by John Calvin. It is argued that Jonker’s very understanding of Reformed theology is derived from Calvin. Furthermore, on three issues, Calvin plays an important role: Jonker’s insistence on the visible unity of the church, the importance of social ethics, and the church as the people of God superseding the ethnic notion of a volkskerk. The paper concludes with a list of contemporary theological and ethical issues that may be addressed from the Calvin-Jonker line of thinking.
An Integral Equation Approach to the Dynamics of L2-3 Cortical Neurons
Richard Naud
Quantitative Biology , 2013,
Abstract: How do neuronal populations encode time-dependent stimuli in their population firing rate? To address this question, I consider the quasi-renewal equation and the event-based expansion, two theoretical approximations proposed recently, and test these against peri-stimulus time histograms from L2-3 pyramidal cells in vitro. Parameters are optimized by gradient descent to best match the firing rate output given the current input. The fitting method can estimate single-neuron parameters that are normally obtained either with intracellular recordings or with individual spike trains. I find that quasi-renewal theory predicts the adapting firing rate with good precision but not the event-based expansion. Quasi-renewal predictions are equal in quality with state-of-the-art spike timing prediction methods, and does so without resorting to the indiviual spike times or the membrane potential responses.
Observation of $h/e$ conductance oscillations in disordered metallic $T_3$ network
F. Schopfer,F. Mallet,C. Naud,G. Faini,D. Mailly,L. Saminadayar,C. B?uerle
Physics , 2004,
Abstract: We report on magnetotransport measurements performed on a large metallic two-dimensional $\mathcal{T}_{3}$ network. Superimposed on the conventional Altshuler-Aronov-Spivak (AAS) oscillations of period $h/2e$, we observe clear $h/e$ oscillations in magnetic fields up to $8 T$. Different interpretations of this phenomenon are proposed.

Abstract: Radar cloud-top heights were retrieved at both the Chilbolton Facility for Atmospheric and Radio Research, UK (CFARR) and the ARM Southern Great Plain site, USA (SGP), using millimetre wave cloud radars and identical algorithms. The resulting cloud-top heights were used for comparison with MODIS and MISR retrieved cloud-top heights, from March 2000 to October 2003. Both imaging instruments reside on the NASA Earth Observing System (EOS) Terra platform launched in 1999. MODIS and MISR cloud-top products were from the recent collections (4 and 3, respectively) that cover the entire mission. The cloud characteristics are different at each ground site, with clouds generally residing at higher altitudes at SGP, but with a greater occurrence of broken or multilayered clouds at CFARR. A method is presented to automatically eliminate scenes where clouds are of a broken nature, since it is difficult in these conditions to ensure that ground-based and satellite measurements refer to the same cloud deck. The intercomparison between MODIS and radar cloud-top heights reveals that MODIS cloud-top heights agree with radar within about 1km for mid- and high-level clouds. However, this accuracy is degraded to nearly 3 km for low-level clouds. MISR cloud-top heights are found to agree with radar cloud-top heights to within 0.6 km, which is in line with theoretical expectations. In single-level cloud situations MODIS and MISR cloud-top heights tend to agree within 1 km. This comparison also reveals that the loss of radar sensitivity during 2001 resulted in the CFARR instrument being less accurate for high-level cloud-top height measurements. Keywords.
