Spectroscopic Analysis in the Virtual Observatory Environment with SPLAT-VO
Petr Skoda,Peter W. Draper,Margarida Castro Neves,David Andresic,Tim Jenness
Physics , 2014, DOI: 10.1016/j.ascom.2014.06.001
Abstract: SPLAT-VO is a powerful graphical tool for displaying, comparing, modifying and analyzing astronomical spectra, as well as searching and retrieving spectra from services around the world using Virtual Observatory (VO) protocols and services. The development of SPLAT-VO started in 1999, as part of the Starlink StarJava initiative, sometime before that of the VO, so initial support for the VO was necessarily added once VO standards and services became available. Further developments were supported by the Joint Astronomy Centre, Hawaii until 2009. Since end of 2011 development of SPLAT-VO has been continued by the German Astrophysical Virtual Observatory, and the Astronomical Institute of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic. From this time several new features have been added, including support for the latest VO protocols, along with new visualization and spectra storing capabilities. This paper presents the history of SPLAT-VO, it's capabilities, recent additions and future plans, as well as a discussion on the motivations and lessons learned up to now.
Imitating Jesus, yes – but which Jesus? A critical engagement with the ethics of Richard Burridge in imitating Jesus: An inclusive approach to new testament ethics (2007)
JA Draper
HTS Theological Studies/Teologiese Studies , 2009,
Abstract: This paper examines the attempt by Richard Burridge in his recent book, Imitating Jesus: An inclusive approach to New Testament ethics (2007), to build an engaged Christian ethics starting with the historical Jesus but taking full account of the insights into the perspectives of the four gospels in their own right, based on their genre as Greek bioi. While Burridge’s approach is applauded and regarded as a major step forward, it is critiqued here on his selectivity in his presentation of the results of two decades of research into the Jesus of history. Burridge’s selection of the South African experience in the struggle against apartheid as his ‘test case’ is also questioned, since the issues in such struggles for justice appear more straightforward to outsiders than they do to insiders and his analysis raises more questions than it answers.
The moral economy of the Didache
JA Draper
HTS Theological Studies/Teologiese Studies , 2011,
Abstract: This article applies the model of the moral economy in the ancient world, as formulated by Karl Polanyi and applied by Halvor Moxnes, to the economic relations reflected in the Didache. The study partly confirms Aaron Milavec’s contention that the instructions in the text would provide an ‘economic safety net’ for members of the community by putting in place a system of generalised reciprocity and redistribution, although Milavec’s depiction of the community as an ‘urban working class’ movement is found to be anachronistic. The ‘communion of the saints’ is very much an economic system with aspects of resistance to the Roman imperial system. However, the moral economy of the Didache is seen to reflect a number of ambiguities, particularly in its adoption of the Christian Housetable ethic but also in its adoption of the patron client terminology in the dispute between prophets and teachers on the one side and bishops and deacons on the other.

The importance of cost-benefit analysis (CBA) - a response
Steve Draper
Research in Learning Technology , 2003, DOI: 10.3402/rlt.v11i3.11291
Abstract: In Issue 11.2, Nicol and Coen (2003) argue for developing a cost-benefit analysis model for learning technology. However, there are three substantive issues with this approach. First, it is problematic because it involves comparing different things; second, because by understanding the purpose of the analysis, it may be possible to justify the necessary simplifications for special cases and limited applications while being explicit about the limitations; and third (and conversely), this can expose errors and omissions in the analysis even after accepting its general principles.
Status of Heavy Quark Physics on the Lattice
Terrence Draper
Physics , 1998, DOI: 10.1016/S0920-5632(99)85006-3
Abstract: The status of lattice calculations of some phenomenology of heavy quarks is presented. Emphasis is on progress made in calculating those quantities relevant to estimating parameters of the quark mixing matrix, namely leptonic decay constants, the bag parameter of neutral $B$ mixing, and semileptonic form factors. New results from studies of quarkonia are highlighted.
The Assessment of Animal Welfare in British Zoos by Government-Appointed Inspectors
Chris Draper,Stephen Harris
Animals , 2012, DOI: 10.3390/ani2040507
Abstract: We analysed the reports of government-appointed inspectors from 192 zoos between 2005–2008 to provide the first review of how animal welfare was assessed in British zoos since the enactment of the Zoo Licensing Act 1981. We examined the effects of whether or not a veterinarian was included in the inspection team, type of inspection, licence status of the zoo and membership of a zoo association on the inspectors’ assessments of animal welfare standards in five areas that approximate to the Five Freedoms. At least 11% of full licence inspections did not comply with the legal requirement for two inspectors. The inspectors’ reports were unclear as to how animal welfare was assessed, whether all animals or only a sub-sample had been inspected, and were based predominantly on welfare inputs rather than outcomes. Of 9,024 animal welfare assessments across the 192 zoos, 7,511 (83%) were graded as meeting the standards, 782 (9%) as substandard and the rest were not graded. Of the 192 zoos, 47 (24%) were assessed as meeting all the animal welfare standards. Membership of a zoo association was not associated with a higher overall assessment of animal welfare standards, and specialist collections such as Farm Parks and Other Bird collections performed least well. We recommend a number of changes to the inspection process that should lead to greater clarity in the assessment of animal welfare in British zoos.
Laser surface alloying of gold
C. W. Draper
Gold Bulletin , 1986, DOI: 10.1007/BF03214638
Abstract: In many technological applications specific material surface properties are required, which are satisfied by depositing a layer of, for example, gold on a component, Laser surface alloying can modify a surface uniquely to produce a wide range of structures and properties.
