Restorative justice and victims: Not a self-evident relationship
Pemberton Antony,Winkel Frans W.,Groenhuijsen Mark
Temida , 2006, DOI: 10.2298/tem0601011p
Abstract: The two most prominent developments in criminal justice in the last twenty to thirty years are the rise of restorative justice and the recognition and improvement of the position of the victim. The first part of the paper discusses a theoretical model for victims within restorative justice that the researchers at the InterVICT research institute authors of this paper) are developing at this moment. This model incorporates current knowledge from social psychology and studies surrounding traumatic stress and provides a number of hypotheses that will be subsequently evaluated in practice with participants in restorative justice procedures. On the other hand, international legal protocols for restorative justice also lack a consistent victim-oriented perspective. To this end the European Forum for Victim Services has recently published a statement concerning the position of the victim within mediation. The second part of the paper addresses the central issues in this statement. Taken together the paper moves beyond criticism of restorative justice, as it hopes to redirect theory and implementation of restorative justice toward a stronger victim-orientation.
Dirt, disease and death: control, resistance and change in the post-emancipation Caribbean
Pemberton, Rita;
História, Ciências, Saúde-Manguinhos , 2012, DOI: 10.1590/S0104-59702012000500004
Abstract: this study examines how health facilities and services were used as an agency of worker control in the british caribbean between 1838 and 1860. it argues that planter health strategies were based on flawed assumptions. the resultant policy of deprivation of access to medical services by the labouring population backfired within 16 years of freedom when a cholera epidemic rocked the region. it exposed the poor living conditions of the free villages and generated fear and panic among the local elite who were forced to make policy changes regarding health and sanitation. as a result the first steps towards the establishment of public health services in the british caribbean were stimulated.
Deaths in Police Custody: The ‘acceptable’ consequences of a ‘law and order’ society?
Simon Pemberton
Outlines : Critical Practice Studies , 2005,
Abstract: This article seeks to explain the acceptance of the rising numbers of police custody deaths in England and Wales over the last 20 years. It argues that these deaths are a consequence of the transformation in the U.K., from a social democratic to an increasingly neo-liberal mode of social organisation. The article links the characteristics of the authoritarian state, which emerged at this point in time, to the current profile of police custody deaths. Then, by using interview material with those who have investigated these cases, the article seeks to understand the narratives which are mobilised to legitimate these deaths as the ‘acceptable’ consequences of a ‘law and order’ society.
Computation of Electron Impact Cross Sections from Molecules of Astrophysical Importance  [PDF]
Bobby Antony
Journal of Modern Physics (JMP) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/jmp.2011.29133
Abstract: Computations were performed for calculating cross sections of electron impact scattering from astro-physical targets CaF, HCN and H2S at energies lower than their ionization potential. The results show that the use of highly accurate R-matrix method which includes all the relevant physics and chemistry of the molecule in its formalism generate features significantly different from the simple static exchange calculation. The data obtained shows interesting structures in the eigen-phase sums which may be attributed to the dissociation channel of the molecule.
An Exploration of the Predictors of Relationship Status with a Caveat on Interpretation  [PDF]
Antony Mastroniani
Open Journal of Applied Sciences (OJAppS) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/ojapps.2017.78031
Abstract: Using the Puerto Rican Maternal and Infant Health Study dataset (PRMIHS), the predictors of relationship status were examined via probit regression. The strongest predictors of relationship status found were interactions between bi-nary variables for the age that a respondent first had sexual intercourse and for the age that a respondent first entered into a union (N = 1452). This paper con-cludes by arguing that the results provide support for viewing union status as being primarily dependent on the people involved in the union instead of being primarily dependent on factors external to the people themselves.
Identification and comparative analysis of sixteen fungal peptidyl-prolyl cis/trans isomerase repertoires
Trevor J Pemberton
BMC Genomics , 2006, DOI: 10.1186/1471-2164-7-244
Abstract: PPIase numbers within these fungal repertoires appears associated with genome size and orthology between repertoires was found to be low. Phylogenetic analysis showed the single-domain FKBPs to evolve prior to the multi-domain FKBPs, whereas the multi-domain cyclophilins appear to evolve throughout cyclophilin evolution. A comparison of their known functions has identified, besides a common role within protein folding, multiple roles for the cyclophilins within pre-mRNA splicing and cellular signalling, and within transcription and cell cycle regulation for the parvulins. However, no such commonality was found with the FKBPs. Twelve of the 17 human cyclophilins and both human parvulins, but only one of the 13 human FKBPs, identified orthologues within these fungi. hPar14 orthologues were restricted to the Pezizomycotina fungi, and R. oryzae is unique in the known fungi in possessing an hCyp33 orthologue and a TPR-containing FKBP. The repertoires of Cryptococcus neoformans, Aspergillus fumigatus, and Aspergillus nidulans were found to exhibit the highest orthology to the human repertoire, and Saccharomyces cerevisiae one of the lowest.Given this data, we would hypothesize that: (i) the evolution of the fungal PPIases is driven, at least in part, by the size of the proteome, (ii) evolutionary pressures differ both between the different PPIase families and the different fungi, and (iii) whilst the cyclophilins and parvulins have evolved to perform conserved functions, the FKBPs have evolved to perform more variable roles. Also, the repertoire of Cryptococcus neoformans may represent a better model fungal system within which to study the functions of the PPIases as its genome size and genetic tractability are equal to those of Saccharomyces cerevisiae, whilst its repertoires exhibits greater orthology to that of humans. However, further experimental investigations are required to confirm this.The peptidyl-prolyl cis/trans isomerase (PPIase) class of proteins is traditio
Self-Access Language Learning in Museums: A Materials Development Project.
Lucy Cooker,Richard Pemberton
Studies in Self-Access Learning Journal , 2010,
Abstract: This paper reports on a project carried out at The University of Nottingham to create and evaluate English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) materials with the aim of exploiting the self-access language learning possibilities that museums offer. A series of thematic resources were produced and trialed with ESOL learners in the Lincolnshire area. Feedback from the learners indicated that museums could have an important role to play in providing flexible language learning opportunities for ESOL students. The authors conclude by suggesting that other public facilities such as libraries, art galleries, botanical gardens and even football stadia could be exploited for this purpose.
A Wave Group for Entanglement, Linking Uncertainties in Time and Space  [PDF]
Antony J. Bourdillon
Journal of Modern Physics (JMP) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/jmp.2012.33041
Abstract: A carrier wave in a 5-dimensional wave group is examined for information on electromagnetic waves and on particle probability amplitudes. Simulations by Maxwell’s equations show that the phase and group velocities in electromagnetic waves are equal, both in vacuo and in dielectric media. By contrast, particle probability amplitudes in wave packet motion are more complicated. A dependence of rest mass on relative phase and group velocities is derived by consistency. Occurrences that are simultaneous and connected on wave fronts in the rest frame, appear separated when observed in moving frames. Uncertainties in space and time are linked by the probability amplitude wave group.
A Travelling Wave Group II: Antiparticles in a Force Field  [PDF]
Antony J. Bourdillon
Journal of Modern Physics (JMP) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/jmp.2013.46097

The travelling wave group is a solution to the wave equation. With a Gaussian envelope, this stable wave does not spread as it propagates. The group is derived for electromagnetic waves and converted with Planck’s law to quantized photons. The resulting wave is a probability amplitude, and this is adapted to particles subject to special relativity. By including mass and by inverting the wave group, a description for antiparticles is derived. The consequent explanation is consistent with Dirac’s relativistic equation and with his theory of the electron; while being more specific than his idea of the wave packet, and more stable. The travelling wave group is extended to describe the positron, either free or in an external field.

The Structure of Icosahedral Quasicrystals and Seven Blunders in Quasicrystallography  [PDF]
Antony J. Bourdillon
Journal of Modern Physics (JMP) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/jmp.2014.56060

This structural study of quasicrystals is based on extremely dense icosahedral unit cells that are systematically and consistently measured for the first time. The structure and pattern indexation are 3-dimensional. A formula is given for scattering from atoms in hierarchic arrangement and geometric series. The Quasi-Bragg law is a new law in physics, with possible applications beyond crystallography. The structure is compared with previous, unsuccessful, and contradictory, attempts at analysis.
