    2011-01-01

    Segmentation is the process of partitioning a digital image into multiple segments (sets of pixels). Such common segmentation tasks including segmenting written text or segmenting tumors from healthy brain tissue in an MRI image, etc. Chan-Vese model for active contours is a powerful and flexible method which is able to segment many types of images, including some that would be quite difficult to segments in means of "classical" segmentation - i.e., using thresholding or gradient based methods. This model is based on the Mumford-Shah functional for segmentation, and is used widely in the medical imaging field, especially for the segmentation of the brain, heart and trachea. The model is based on an energy minimization problem, which can be reformulated in the level set formulation, leading to an easier way to solve the problem. In this project, the model will be presented (there is an extension to color (vector-valued) images, but it will not be considered here), and Matlab code that implements it will be int...

  3. Convex Relaxations for a Generalized Chan-Vese Model

    KAUST Repository

    Bae, Egil

    2013-01-01

    We revisit the Chan-Vese model of image segmentation with a focus on the encoding with several integer-valued labeling functions. We relate several representations with varying amount of complexity and demonstrate the connection to recent relaxations for product sets and to dual maxflow-based formulations. For some special cases, it can be shown that it is possible to guarantee binary minimizers. While this is not true in general, we show how to derive a convex approximation of the combinatorial problem for more than 4 phases. We also provide a method to avoid overcounting of boundaries in the original Chan-Vese model without departing from the efficient product-set representation. Finally, we derive an algorithm to solve the associated discretized problem, and demonstrate that it allows to obtain good approximations for the segmentation problem with various number of regions. © 2013 Springer-Verlag.

    2013-01-01

    Aiming to solve the inefficient segmentation in traditional C-V model for complex topography image and time-consuming process caused by the level set function solving with partial differential, an improved Chan-Vese model is presented in this paper. With the good performances of maintaining topological properties of the traditional level set method and avoiding the numerical so-lution of partial differential, the same segmentation results could be easily obtained. Thus, a stable foundation for rapid segmenta-tion-based on image reconstruction identification is established.

  8. Normal Vector Projection Method used for Convex Optimization of Chan-Vese Model for Image Segmentation

    Science.gov (United States)

    Wei, W. B.; Tan, L.; Jia, M. Q.; Pan, Z. K.

    2017-01-01

    The variational level set method is one of the main methods of image segmentation. Due to signed distance functions as level sets have to keep the nature of the functions through numerical remedy or additional technology in an evolutionary process, it is not very efficient. In this paper, a normal vector projection method for image segmentation using Chan-Vese model is proposed. An equivalent formulation of Chan-Vese model is used by taking advantage of property of binary level set functions and combining with the concept of convex relaxation. Threshold method and projection formula are applied in the implementation. It can avoid the above problems and obtain a global optimal solution. Experimental results on both synthetic and real images validate the effects of the proposed normal vector projection method, and show advantages over traditional algorithms in terms of computational efficiency.

  9. Trial by Jury in Russian Military Courts

    Full Text Available One of peculiar features of the military criminal justice system in Russia is that in some cases military defendants may apply for trial by jury. Unlike the existing U.S. court-martial jury and the Russian military jury of the early 1900s (World War I period which were comprised of the members of the armed forces, in modern Russia jurors trying military defendants are civilians. This article aims to provide a brief history of military jury in Russia and identify issues of independence and impartiality in Russian military courts with participation of lay decision-makers. In particular, the article will analyze two high-profile cases which resulted in acquittals of Russian officers accused of killing several Chechen civilians during counter-terrorist operations in Chechnya.

  10. Mineralogy of metamorphosed carbonatite of the Vesely occurrence, Northern Transbaikal region, Russia

    Lastochkin, E. I.; Ripp, G. S.; Doroshkevich, A. G.

    2011-06-01

    Metamorphism of carbonatite is exemplified in the Vesely occurrence. According to available data, the age of the carbonatite is 596 ± 3.5Ma, whereas metamorphism is dated at 550 ± 14 Ma. The rocks at the Vesely occurrence were metamorphosed under conditions of greenschist facies (epidote-muscovite-chlorite subfacies) under elevated pressure. Microthermometry of fluid inclusions in minerals indicates that the temperature of metamorphism is 377-450°C and the pressure estimated from phengite geobarometer is 6-8 kbar. The low-grade metamorphism led to the partial recrystallization of carbonates and apatite with removal of trace elements. This process resulted in a change of the oxygen isotopic composition of the studied minerals. Metamorphism was accompanied by formation of talc, phengite, chlorite, quartz, tremolite-actinolite, and anthophyllite, which are not typical of carbonatite. The data obtained show that the metamorphism exerted an effect on the mineralogical, isotopic, geochemical, and technological properties of the carbonatite. The effect of metamorphism should be taken into account in determination of the nature of ore mineralization and estimation of ore quality and perspective of the occurrence.

  12. Wavelet-based improved Chan-Vese model for image segmentation

    Science.gov (United States)

    Zhao, Xiaoli; Zhou, Pucheng; Xue, Mogen

    2016-10-01

    In this paper, a kind of image segmentation approach which based on improved Chan-Vese (CV) model and wavelet transform was proposed. Firstly, one-level wavelet decomposition was adopted to get the low frequency approximation image. And then, the improved CV model, which contains the global term, local term and the regularization term, was utilized to segment the low frequency approximation image, so as to obtain the coarse image segmentation result. Finally, the coarse segmentation result was interpolated into the fine scale as an initial contour, and the improved CV model was utilized again to get the fine scale segmentation result. Experimental results show that our method can segment low contrast images and/or inhomogeneous intensity images more effectively than traditional level set methods.

    2013-06-01

    We present a fast and robust approach to tracking the evolving shape of whole fluorescent cells in time-lapse series. The proposed tracking scheme involves two steps. First, coherence-enhancing diffusion filtering is applied on each frame to reduce the amount of noise and enhance flow-like structures. Second, the cell boundaries are detected by minimizing the Chan-Vese model in the fast level set-like and graph cut frameworks. To allow simultaneous tracking of multiple cells over time, both frameworks have been integrated with a topological prior exploiting the object indication function. The potential of the proposed tracking scheme and the advantages and disadvantages of both frameworks are demonstrated on 2-D and 3-D time-lapse series of rat adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cells and human lung squamous cell carcinoma cells, respectively.

  14. Jury selection and jury trial in Spain: between theory and practice

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2011-12-01

    Full Text Available The Jury Court in Spain is composed of nine citizens and is headed by a magistrate belonging to the Provincial Court, Chamber of Criminal. These citizens participate as lay assessors in a very particular way. The Spanish Jury Law 5/1995 contemplates its intervention in criminal proceedings as a sort of ‘duty-right’; one hand, inasmuch as it is a right, the law guarantees a remuneration; on the other, inasmuch as it is a duty, the Jury Law does not provide any sort of sanction because of inassistance. Also legal status of the Spanish jurors is established by a complicated system of qualification and disqualifications causes. There are four categories for disqualification: incapacities, incompatibilities, prohibitions and excuses, which contemplate various personal and professional circumstances. In contrast, certain omissions in the regulation may be appreciated such as the conscientious objection for example, which becomes the most controversial question with regard to the duty to act as a juror.The purpose of present paper is to discuss the abover points and examines how jury selection and service actually proceeds in Spanish Jury Courts. An initial reference is made to the composition of the lists of prospective jurors, which includes an explanation of the way in which prospective jurors are designated by random from the electoral census and how the definitive lists are drawn up in each province at two-yearly intervals and delivered to the Provincial Courts. Subsequently, the trial jury selection system is presented along with other measures that relate to jury participation in criminal proceedings, such as the completion of a questionnaire on lawful grounds for disqualification and the distribution of a copy of the ‘jury handbook’ to each selected juror. References are also made to the possibility of challenges for cause and without cause (peremptory challenges both by the parties to the trial, defence and prosecution, as well as to

    2016-06-01

    Full Text Available Descriptive and normative discussions of whether the jury trial is or should be a political institution are complicated by the systematic ambiguity of the most important terms in this discussion. One influential perspective understands a political actor as "he would decide on the exception." This seems to fit the jury insofar as it may nullify the written law in its decisions. It turns out, however, that the jury's actual practices demonstrate that the usual notion of sovereignty is far too narrow. Las discusiones descriptivas y normativas de si el juicio por jurado es o debe ser una institución política son complicadas por la ambigüedad sistemática de los términos más importantes de esta discusión. Una perspectiva influyente entiende que un actor político tomaría una decisión sobre la excepción”. Esto parece encajar en el jurado en la medida en que puede anular en sus decisiones la ley escrita. Resulta, sin embargo, que las prácticas reales del jurado demuestran que la noción habitual de soberanía es demasiado estrecha. DOWNLOAD THIS PAPER FROM SSRN: http://ssrn.com/abstract=2765477

    2015-11-01

    Full Text Available To further improve the accuracy and speed of river segmentation on synthetic aperture radar(SAR images, a segmentation method is proposed, which is based on improved Chan-Vese(CV model combining with reciprocal gray entropy multi-threshold selection optimized by artificial bee colony algorithm. Considering the uniformity of the gray level within river object cluster and background cluster, a coarse river image segmentation is made by using the multi-threshold selection algorithm based on reciprocal gray entropy and artificial bee colony optimization; Contrapose the low convergence speed and the sensitivity to initial conditions of basic CV model, the Dirac function is replaced with the image edge intensity and the coarse segmentation results serve as the initial condition of improved CV model which is utilized to make a fine segmentation for the river image. A large number of experimental results show that, the proposed segmentation method needs not set initial conditions and has high running speed as well as segmentation accuracy.

    Einstein's Jury is the dramatic story of how astronomers in Germany, England, and America competed to test Einstein's developing theory of relativity. Weaving a rich narrative based on extensive archival research, Jeffrey Crelinsten shows how these early scientific debates shaped cultural attitudes we hold today. The book examines Einstein's theory of general relativity through the eyes of astronomers, many of whom were not convinced of the legitimacy of Einstein's startling breakthrough. These were individuals with international reputations to uphold and benefactors and shareholders to p

  18. Internal factors affecting the jury members verdict

    2013-09-01

    Full Text Available The article is devoted to the analysis of socio-demographic and individual psychological characteristics that influence the verdict of jury. The study involved 38 men and women aged 25 to 64 years. With the help of a questionnaire, developed on the basis of legal development model by J. Tapp and F. Levine, we revealed levels of jury members’ legal conscience, which, together with socio-demographic characteristics and personality characteristics of the subjects, identified by R. Cattell 16PF Questionnaire, were related to the responses on the Questionnaire while returning verdict on specially selected criminal cases with implicit guilt of the defendant. According to the study, it was determined that the socio-demographic characteristics of the jurors did not significantly affect their verdict, and among the psychological characteristics of the jurors the greatest impact on their verdict has the level of legal development. Thus, depending on the nature of the crime (violent, non-violent or committed through negligence, the same level of legal conscience differently affect the decision of jurors.

  19. How Juries Assess Universal Design in Norwegian Architectural School Competitions.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Houck, Leif D

    2016-01-01

    This paper investigates how architectural school competition juries assess Universal Design. The method used is a case study of 18 recent architectural school competitions in Norway. The results show that most competition briefs ask for Universal Designed buildings. In 8 of the 18 cases, Universal Design is mentioned as an assessment criterion. In 11 of the 18 cases, Universal Design is commented on by the juries in the jury reports, but only in 3 of the cases, do the juries assess this aspect consistently on every competition project. The overall impression is that some amount of uncertainty looms concerning how Universal Design should be assessed in the competition stage. Based on the findings, future juries should concentrate on orientation and overview prior to technicalities and details.

    . It was, however, the development of market research methods during the 1930s and 1940s, which provided the crucial backdrop for the sudden rise to prominence of an idea that assumes that consumers dictate what is produced through their ‘‘votes,’’ that is, daily choices. Innovations in the measurement...... of consumer preferences, such as consumer juries, panel surveys, and the program analyzer technique, provided the final touch of scientific credibility to this idea. An understanding of the historical origins and political—philosophical implications of the equation of consumer markets and democracies......This article discusses the origins of the idea that a consumer’s choice is equivalent to a citizen’s vote or a juror’s verdict and that markets therefore resemble the political process of a democracy.

  1. Do consumer voices in health-care citizens' juries matter?

    Science.gov (United States)

    Krinks, Rachael; Kendall, Elizabeth; Whitty, Jennifer A; Scuffham, Paul A

    2016-10-01

    There is widespread agreement that the public should be engaged in health-care decision making. One method of engagement that is gaining prominence is the citizens' jury, which places citizens at the centre of the deliberative process. However, little is known about how the jury process works in a health-care context. There is even less clarity about how consumer perspectives are heard within citizens' juries and with what consequences. This paper focuses on what is known about the role of consumer voices within health-care citizens' juries, how these voices are heard by jurors and whether and in what ways the inclusion or exclusion of such voices may matter. Consumer voices are not always included in health-care citizens' juries. There is a dearth of research on the conditions under which consumer voices emerge (or not), from which sources and why. As a result, little is known about what stories are voiced or silenced, and how such stories are heard by jurors, with what consequences for jurors, deliberation, decision-makers, policy and practice. The potential role of consumer voices in influencing deliberations and recommendations of citizens' juries requires greater attention. Much needed knowledge about the nuances of deliberative processes will contribute to an assessment of the usefulness of citizens' juries as a public engagement mechanism. © 2015 The Authors.

    Full Text Available In the Korean jury system, jurors deliberate without interference of anyone, except when they cannot reach a unanimous verdict, in which case they must hear the judge’s opinion. If jurors convict the defendant, they also deliberate with the judge on sentencing and provide their opinions. This unique feature of the Korean jury system provides rare opportunities to examine the interaction of the lay people and judges in deliberation. Through direct observation and the content analysis of the shadow jury deliberations on actual cases in Korea, we will examine whether the judge’s intervention was helpful in jury decision-making or hampers the independent judgment of the jury. The result shows the collaborative deliberation amongst jurors and judges in sentencing, and in some cases in conviction, will mutually benefit both. In turn, jurors will retain the credibility of the judiciary while the judges will reflect upon their decisions in accordance with the legal consciousness of the lay people. En el sistema de jurados de Corea, los miembros del jurado deliberan sin interferencia de nadie, excepto cuando no pueden llegar a un veredicto unánime, en cuyo caso deben escuchar la opinión del juez. Si los miembros del jurado condenan al acusado, también deliberan con el juez a la hora de dictar sentencia y expresan sus opiniones. Esta característica única del sistema de jurados de Corea ofrece pocas oportunidades para examinar la interacción del jurado popular y los jueces durante su deliberación. A través de la observación directa y el análisis del contenido de las deliberaciones del jurado en la sombra sobre casos reales en Corea, se analizará si la intervención del juez fue útil en la toma de decisiones del jurado o dificulta su independencia de criterio. El resultado demuestra que la deliberación entre los miembros del jurado y los jueces a la hora de dictar sentencia, y en algunos casos al declarar culpable al acusado, beneficia a

    1995-06-30

    A Federal judge has refused to overturn or reduce a jury's $125,000 award to a Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) employee who said his privacy was invaded when his superiors learned he was taking an AIDS medication. The employee, known as John Doe, charged that Judith Pierce, the chief administrative officer of SEPTA, looked at the records of the agency's prescription drug plan to confirm her suspicions that he had HIV. Pierce, who claimed drug report review was part of her job in controlling costs, contended that she wanted to make sure the plan's new administrator, Rite-Aid Corp., was charging the right prices for prescriptions. The judge agreed with the jury that Pierce went far beyond her role as auditor of the drug plan when she asked Rite-Aid to link individuals' names to specific prescriptions and then informed Doe's supervisor, associate, and another employee about Doe's AIDS medication.

    Deliberative engagement techniques and citizens' juries are touted as means of incorporating the public into policy decision-making, managing community expectations and increasing commitment to public health policy. This paper reports a study to examine the feasibility of citizens' juries as a means of collecting data to inform public health policy related to food regulation through evaluation of the conduct of a citizens' jury. A citizens' jury was conducted with a representative sample of 17 South Australians to explore their willingness to consider the proposition that food and drink advertising and/or sponsorship should be banned at children's sporting events. The results showed that, in relation to the central proposition and evaluation data from the jury, opinion on the proposition remained comparatively stable. Most jurors indicated that they thought that food and drink sponsorship and/or advertising at children's sporting events would have little or no effect on altering children's diet and eating habits, with the proportion increasing during the jury process. Jurors were given evaluation sheets about the content of the jury and the process of the citizens' jury to complete at the end of the session. The evaluation of the citizens' jury process revealed positive perceptions. The majority of jurors agreed that their knowledge of the issues of food and drink sponsorship in children's sport had increased as a result of participation in the citizens' jury. The majority also viewed the decision-making process as fair and felt that their views were listened to. One important response in the evaluation was that all jurors indicated that, if given the opportunity, they would participate in another citizens' jury. The findings suggest that the citizens' jury increased participant knowledge of the issue and facilitated reflective discussion of the proposition. Citizens' juries are an effective means of gaining insight into public views of policy and the circumstances

    Full Text Available Indigenous peoples in Australia, the United States and Canada are significantly overrepresented as defendants in criminal trials and yet vastly underrepresented on juries in criminal trials. This means that all-white juries mostly determine the guilt of Indigenous defendants or white defendants responsible for harming Indigenous victims. In this article, we explore cases in which Indigenous defendants have perceived that an all-white jury’s prejudice against Indigenous people would prevent them receiving a fair trial. It focuses on Indigenous defendants (often facing charges in relation to protesting against white racism challenging the array of all-white juries. Across these cases, Australian courts rely on formal notions of fairness in jury selection to dismiss the Indigenous defendant’s perception of bias and foreclose an inquiry into the potential prejudices of white jurors. We compare the Australian judicial ‘colour-blindness’ towards all-white juries with that of the United States and Canada. We argue that the tendency for courts in the United States and Canada to question jurors on their biases provides useful lessons for Australian judiciaries, including in relation to the impending trials of Indigenous defendants in Kalgoorlie, Western Australia, accused of committing crimes in response to white racist violence. Nonetheless, across all jurisdictions where there is a challenge to the array based on racial composition, courts consistently uphold all-white juries. We suggest that the judicial view of the racial neutrality of white jury selection misapprehends the substantive biases in jury selection and the injustice perceived by defendants in having a white jury adjudicate an alleged crime that is committed in circumstances involving protest against white prejudice.

    Full Text Available This article aims at flying target detection and localization of a fixed-wing unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV autonomous take-off and landing within Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS-denied environments. A Chan-Vese model–based approach is proposed and developed for ground stereo vision detection. Extended Kalman Filter (EKF is fused into state estimation to reduce the localization inaccuracy caused by measurement errors of object detection and Pan-Tilt unit (PTU attitudes. Furthermore, the region-of-interest (ROI setting up is conducted to improve the real-time capability. The present work contributes to real-time, accurate and robust features, compared with our previous works. Both offline and online experimental results validate the effectiveness and better performances of the proposed method against the traditional triangulation-based localization algorithm.

    Abstract: The major aim of this article is to highlight Juri Apresjan's impact on the develop-ment of linguistic semantics and theoretical lexicography. In order to achieve this goal, a number of issues of paramount importance, which have always been in the focus of attention in Apresjan's publications, have to be discussed: (a the notion of "naïve picture of the world", i.e. language-spe-cific folk categorization encoded in the lexical and grammatical semantics of a particular language, as opposed to the supposedly universal and language-independent system of scientific concepts; (b basic properties of the formal metalanguage of semantic desciption, its explanatory power and applicability in dictionary-making; and (c representation of synonymy in a bilingual and a mono-lingual dictionary of synonyms designed within the framework of systematic lexicography. In addition, considerable attention has been given to two basic categories of systematic lexicography, "lexicographic portrait" and "lexicographic type", as well as the zonal structure of dictionary arti-cles.

    Juri is a biodiversity-rich primary forest in Bangladesh, which remains ecologically unexplored. We identified tree species and examined the richness, alpha (α) diversity and floristic similarity patterns within the identi-fied communities. Vegetation and environmental data were sampled in 120 (0.04 ha) study plots. Tree communities were delimited by two-way indicator species analysis (TWINSPAN). In total, 78 tree species of 35 families and 58 genera were identified. TWINSPAN identified six tree communities: A—Tricalysia singularis; B—Kydia calyci-na-Castanopsis tribuloides;C—Polyalthia simiarum-Dua-banga grandiflora; D—Ficus roxburghii; E—Artocarpus lacucha;F—Artocarpus lacucha. Mean richness, Shannon and Gini-Simpson indices were highest for the Polyalthia simiarum-Duabanga grandiflora community, while Ficus roxburghii showed lowest diversity. Significant differences (p=0.05) in three diversity indices were recorded between Polyalthia simiarum-Duabanga grandiflora and Ficus roxburghii. Tree compositional similarity was greatest between Kydia calycina-Castanopsis tribuloides and Polyalthia simiarum-Duabanga grandiflora (0.712).

    CCTV footage is commonly used in the court room to help visualise the crime in question and to help identify the offender. Unfortunately the majority of surveillance cameras produce such poor quality images that the task of identifying individuals can be extremely difficult. This study aimed at determining whether the task of identifying the offender in CCTV footage was one which a jury should be competent to do, or whether expert evidence would be beneficial in such cases. The ability of potential jury members, the general public, was tested by asking participants to play the role of a jury member by means of an online survey. Potential jury members viewed CCTV in which a simulated offence took place, and were subsequently asked to compare still images of a defendant to the offender to try to determine if they were competent and confident about making a judgement as to whether the defendant committed the crime. Factors such as age, gender and profession of the potential jury members were considered, as well as the type of crime committed, in order to establish if these play any role in the decision made by potential jury members. These factors did not appear to play a significant role; however confidence was also investigated and it became very evident that this was a factor that must be taken into consideration when determining the requirement for expert contribution in facial comparisons. Jury members may well be willing and competent to a basic level in carrying out a facial comparison but if they lack a certain level of confidence in their ability and decision making then this task is more suitable for an expert with experience and skills in this field.

  5. Social Justice and Environmental Awareness Developed through a Citizens' Jury

    2014-12-01

    A Citizens' Jury (CJ) is a discussion forum in which managers, policymakers or politicians are able to present their case to the general public ('citizens') to whom they are accountable, and for these citizens to critically ask questions of the managers/policymakers/politicians in order to better understand issues surrounding local development, planning and policy, impacts and adaptive measures, and to highlight their concerns. A CJ can be useful with respect to developing social justice and environmental awareness issues because it can empower community action and present different viewpoints. A practical CJ exercise is used in a second-year undergraduate course entitled Climate Change and Society, at University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, South Africa. The CJ is used to consider some of the impacts of management policies used for climate change and sustainable development adaption, based on a hypothetical scenario. This scenario is that a major energy company wants to build a dam with hydroelectric power station in a developing country. This will provide low-carbon renewable energy to the country, investment in electricity infrastructure, and the company is committed to help economic development in the country, including in jobs and education. However, building and flooding of the dam will involve displacing 10,000 people from rural communities, flooding agricultural areas and areas of high biodiversity, and archaeological sites. The exercise is based on students, in groups, assuming different 'identities' which may include a local business person, resident, politician, member of an NGO, tourist, engineer, farmer etc, from which viewpoint they must argue for/against the proposal and to question other peoples' viewpoints. This exercise is useful because it allows students to develop understandings of different viewpoints, evaluate risk and impacts on different communities, and highlights the complexity of real-world decision-making.

  6. BOOK REVIEW: Einstein's Jury: The Race to Test Relativity

    2007-10-01

    'I know very well that my theory rests on a shaky foundation. What attracts me to it is that it leads to consequences that seem to be accessible to experiment, and it provides a starting point for the theoretical understanding of gravitation', wrote Einstein in 1911. Einstein's Jury by Jeffrey Crelinsten—well documented, well written, and fascinating to read—describes how, from 1909 on, Einstein's two theories of relativity became known to astronomers, and how the predictions made between 1907 and 1915 were received as challenges to observers. The author gives a non-technical account of the efforts made until 1930 to test these predictions; he focuses on two of the three classical tests, namely gravitational redshift and bending of light; the 'jury' consists mainly of American observers—Adams, Campbell, Curtis, Hale, Perrin, St John, Trumpler and others—working with newly built large telescopes, and the Britons Eddington and Evershed. The major steps which, after a long struggle, convinced the majority of astronomers that Einstein was right, are narrated chronologically in rather great detail, especially the work at Lick Observatory, before and after the famous British observation of 1919, on solar eclipses, and the work at Mount Wilson and the Indian Kodaikanal Observatories to extract the gravitational redshift from the complicated spectrum of the sun. The account of the eclipse work which was carried out between 1918 and 1923 by Lick astronomers corrects the impression suggested by many historical accounts that the British expedition alone settled the light-bending question. Apart from these main topics, the anomalous perihelion advance of Mercury and the ether problem are covered. By concentrating on astronomy rather than on physics this book complements the rich but repetitive literature on Einstein and relativity which appeared in connection with the commemoration of Einstein's annus mirabilis, 2005. The well told stories include curiosities such as

  7. Application of uti possidetis juris principle in the process of determination of international borders

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Tubić Bojan

    2011-01-01

    Full Text Available Uti possidetis juris principle was basic rule in determining international borders in the period of decolonization. It was applied in Latin America and Africa, but also at the end of 20th century in the processes of dissolution of USSR, SFRY and Czechoslovakia. Uti possidetis juris principle is based on the presumption that former colonial administrative borders kept stability and territorial integrity. It was undoubtedly connected with the right of self-determination. It keeps the existing borders by preventing secession, but in that way it does not solve the problem of badly determined and disputed borders. The unclear foundations on which the borders were determined can be a source of chaos and indisputes, which was shown n some cases before the International Court of Justice. The dominant theory is that uti possidetis juris principle should be applied with certain limitations, in the period after decolonization as a basis for preserving the territorial integrity of postcolonial states.

    Social psychologist Erving Goffman, in his classic work The Presentation of Self in Everyday Life, provides a framework that explains why jurors may turn their attention at the courthouse to information not formally presented from the witness stand. We dub this "offstage observation," a type of juror behavior that has not been systematically examined empirically. Analyzing a unique data source of 50 actual jury deliberations in civil trials, we find that jurors do look to the offstage in evaluating the claims of the parties. However, in contrast to predictions, these observations played a surprisingly minor role in the jury deliberation process.

    2003-01-01

    With the progression to more adult-like policies and procedures for youth in the justice system, the right to a jury trial has been extended to young offenders. These youth would not be tried by a jury of their peers, however, but by a jury of adults. The concern is that adult jurors may hold negative attitudes about youth that might influence their decision making in a case involving a young defendant. Two studies examined whether and under what conditions defendant's age affects jurors' decisions about the guilt and sentencing of an accused. In study 1, data were gathered from two samples of jury eligible adults: one university sample and one public sample. Mock jurors read written transcripts of a trial involving a defendant who was presented as either 13, 17, or 25 years of age. Results indicated that the defendant's age had no effect on mock jurors' verdict or their ratings of defendant guilt. However, younger defendants were granted shorter sentences than the adult defendants. In study 2, mock jurors read the same trial presented in study 1 but were asked to deliberate about the case and render group verdicts. These group verdicts did not differ significantly by defendant's age. Age-related themes that emerged from group deliberations were identified, and results indicated that age tended to be used as a mitigating factor in favor of youth rather than against them. These findings are discussed in terms of their implications for youth justice policy and practice.

    Full Text Available Taxation has been suggested as a possible preventive strategy to address the serious public health concern of childhood obesity. Understanding the public’s viewpoint on the potential role of taxation is vital to inform policy decisions if they are to be acceptable to the wider community. A Citizens’ Jury is a deliberative method for engaging the public in decision making and can assist in setting policy agendas. A Citizens’ Jury was conducted in Brisbane, Australia in May 2013 to answer the question: Is taxation on food and drinks an acceptable strategy to the public in order to reduce rates of childhood obesity? Citizens were randomly selected from the electoral roll and invited to participate. Thirteen members were purposively sampled from those expressing interest to broadly reflect the diversity of the Australian public. Over two days, participants were presented with evidence on the topic by experts, were able to question witnesses and deliberate on the evidence. The jurors unanimously supported taxation on sugar-sweetened drinks but generally did not support taxation on processed meats, snack foods and foods eaten/ purchased outside the home. They also supported taxation on snack foods on the condition that traffic light labelling was also introduced. Though they were not specifically asked to deliberate strategies outside of taxation, the jurors strongly recommended more nutritional information on all food packaging using the traffic light and teaspoon labelling systems for sugar, salt and fat content. The Citizens’ Jury suggests that the general public may support taxation on sugar-sweetened drinks to reduce rates of obesity in children. Regulatory reforms of taxation on sugar-sweetened drinks and improved labelling of nutritional information on product packaging were strongly supported by all members of the jury. These reforms should be considered by governments to prevent childhood obesity and the future burden on society from

    Cancer screening policies and programmes should take account of public values and concerns. This study sought to determine the priorities, values and concerns of men who were 'fully informed' about the benefits and harms of prostate-specific antigen (PSA) screening; and empirically examine the value of a community jury in eliciting public values on PSA screening. Community jury was convened on the Gold Coast, Queensland (Australia) to consider PSA screening benefits and harms, and whether government campaigns on PSA screening should be conducted. 27 men (volunteers) aged 50-70 with no personal history of prostate cancer and willing to attend jury 6-7 April 2013: 12 were randomly allocated to jury (11 attended). A qualitative analysis was conducted of the jury deliberations (audio-recorded and transcribed) to elicit the jury's views and recommendations. A survey determined the impact of the jury process on participants' individual testing decisions compared with control group. The jury concluded governments should not invest in programmes focused on PSA screening directed at the public because the PSA test did not offer sufficient reassurance or benefit and could raise unnecessary alarm. It recommended an alternative programme to support general practitioners to provide patients with better quality and more consistent information about PSA screening. After the jury, participants were less likely to be tested in the future compared with the controls, but around half said they would still consider doing so. The jury's unanimous verdict about government programmes was notable in the light of their divergent views on whether or not they would be screened themselves in the future. Community juries provide valuable insights into the priorities and concerns of men weighing up the benefits and harms of PSA screening. It will be important to assess the degree to which the findings are generalisable to other settings.

    2012-01-01

    An important topic related to the insanity defense is what jurors should be told about the disposition of a defendant found not guilty by reason of insanity (NGRI). In the federal court system, jurors are not instructed about the consequences of an NGRI verdict. State courts, however, are divided on the question. The federal precedent, Shannon v.

    Full Text Available Problem statement: The sixth amendment to the United States Constitution guarantees criminal defendants the right to be tried by an impartial jury of peers and the question of what constitutes an “impartial” jury has spawned constitutional controversies in the last several decades as the population of the United States became more ethnically and racially diverse. The Supreme Court has consistently held that an “impartial” jury is a jury chosen from a venire, or jury pool, fairly representative of the community’s demographics and this became known as the fair, cross-section requirement for the venire. Federal and state governments have traditionally relied on voter registration lists as their venire source and scholars have argued that the venire source must expand beyond voter registration lists in order to better represent minority groups and thus to meet the fair, cross-section requirement mandated by the Supreme Court. In this study, we examined whether state and federal governments have expanded their venire sources to attain a more representative venire. Approach: To determine whether the federal and state governments have expanded their venire source lists we compiled federal and state requirements on jury source lists. To obtain federal source lists, we analyzed the most recent court orders specifying jury sources to be used in the districts. To determine states’ venire sources, we compiled and analyzed the jury venire statutes of fifty states. Results: Interestingly, we found that states were more proactive in expanding their venire source lists. A majority of federal districts continue to solely rely on voter registration lists as their venire source while a majority of states are supplementing voter registration lists with other lists, such as drivers’ license records. Some of the states have completely discarded the usage of voter registration lists as their venire source. Conclusion: Mapping of federal rulings and state

  9. Wine competition: from between-juries consistency to sensory perception of consumers

    Full Text Available Wine is a complex product offering to consumer a multitude of choices. Considering this diversity, wine competitions provide a way of helping consumers in their choices. However, the dramatic increase of wine contests in the last fifteen years has led to an increase in the number of award-winning wines. Is a medal really a guarantee of quality or having a medal is just a matter of chance? Two studies were therefore conducted during 3 years in a French wine competition. The first study assessed the impact of the order in which the wine was assessed, and the variability between juries’ judgements and therefore the chances of winning an award. For this purpose, the same wine was placed on all jury tables at the first and penultimate positions of the tasting series. Wines were rated, using the OIV-UIOE score sheet. Score differences were analyzed between tasting juries. The second study sought confirmation by a consumer panel of the medals awarded during the competition. A hedonic test of both award-winning and non-awarded wines was organised, in order to verify whether the awarded wines were indeed preferred by consumers.

    Full Text Available Deep probing questions but answers conceived in vulnerability: On Jurie le Roux�s �spiritual empathy�. Taking the conversation between the Old Testament scholar Jurie le Roux and the dogmatician Johan Heyns as point of departure, it is argued that his well-founded criticism of Heyns has to be taken seriously, as well as his proposition in favour of spiritual empathy to enhance the understanding of historical texts. However, his recommendation for spiritual emphaty is subsequently constructively valued and criticised from a theological-experiential perspective. It is especially noted that, on the one hand, Le Roux�s reactionary historical point of view regarding, amongst others, the retrieval of the orginal intention of the author/text is convincing. On the other hand, it is argued that his perspective is predisposed toward an unproblematical self in the present. As a result, the act of historical interpretation is reduced to dependence on �the seams of the heart� in the individual quester. It is after all argued and substantiated from systematic-theological, postmodern, philosophical and theological-scientific perspectives that historicity does not consist solely of historical �seeing� in the sense of retaining the original intention of the author. Historical understanding also entails historical �hearing� (that is, a surplus of meaning which broadens and enriches historical understanding.

    Full Text Available When lay jurors are unfamiliar with key evidentiary issues, expert evidence, judicial instructions and group deliberation may enhance their understanding of this evidence. Systematic steps to assess the relationship between juror biases in cases of child sexual abuse are offered as an example to illustrate a programmatic research approach. Using pretest-posttest research designs, the effectiveness of three traditional legal procedural safeguards to reduce common jury misconceptions in the context of simulated trials were tested and compared. By measuring mock-juror knowledge before and after each intervention, knowledge gains attributable to these interventions were distinguished from practice effects. Unexpected increases in acquittals following deliberation underscored the importance of adding adequate control groups and of testing deliberation effects in jury simulation studies. Benefits of this research paradigm to assist courts, legal counsel and policy makers in devising effective methods to enhance jury decisions in complex criminal cases are discussed. Cuando los miembros del jurado popular no están familiarizados con los temas probatorios clave, las pruebas periciales, las instrucciones judiciales y la deliberación de grupo pueden mejorar su comprensión de las evidencias. Se ofrecen pasos sistemáticos para evaluar la relación entre sesgos del jurado en casos de abusos a menores como un ejemplo para ilustrar un enfoque de investigación programática. Se probó y comparó la efectividad de tres garantías procesales jurídicas tradicionales para reducir los malentendidos comunes de los jurados en el contexto de juicios simulados, usando patrones de investigación pre y post análisis. Al medir el conocimiento de jurados en juicios simulados antes y después de cada intervención, se distinguían los conocimientos adquiridos atribuibles a estas intervenciones.

  12. Lay Adjudication in Europe: The Rise and Fall of the Traditional Jury

    John Jackson

    2016-06-01

    Full Text Available Drawing on a second survey of lay adjudication in Europe conducted by the authors in 2011-2012, this article points to a general decline across Europe in the use of the ‘traditional’ jury and a trend towards diminishing its capacity to deliver independent decisions. Two examples from Eastern and Western Europe are used to illustrate this trend: a case study of the Russian jury shows how a lack of respect within the legal culture of professionals for lay adjudication has reduced the jury in Russia to a mere ‘decorative’ institution and an analysis of the ECtHR’s jurisprudence shows how the Court’s concern to avoid arbitrary decision making has been encouraging Western European states to introduce greater accountability measures, which threaten the jury’s independence. The article ends on a more optimistic note by arguing that greater accountability measures need not detract from the jury’ s traditional role in promoting lay and political participation in the administration of justice. Basándose en una segunda encuesta sobre adjudicación de legos en Europa desarrollada por los autores entre 2011 y 2012, este artículo apunta a una disminución general en toda Europa del uso del jurado "tradicional" y una tendencia hacia su capacidad cada vez menor de prestar decisiones independientes. Se utilizan dos ejemplos de Europa oriental y occidental para ilustrar esta tendencia: un estudio de caso del jurado ruso demuestra cómo dentro de la cultura jurídica, la falta de respeto de los profesionales hacia la adjudicación de legos ha reducido el jurado en Rusia a una institución meramente “decorativa” y un análisis de la jurisprudencia del TEDH muestra cómo la preocupación de la Corte para evitar la toma de decisiones arbitrarias ha fomentado que los estados de Europa occidental introduzcan mayores medidas de control, que ponen en peligro la independencia del jurado. El artículo termina con una nota más optimista con el

    Full Text Available Most public health agencies and learned societies agree that the prostate-specific antigen (PSA test in asymptomatic men should not be recommended, on account of its potential for harm. Yet PSA is still widely used as a screening test and is not being abandoned. This remains a significant public health issue, and citizens' engagement is needed. This study was designed to produce a deliberation on the PSA screening test by a citizens' jury.Fifteen citizens were selected and balanced for sex, age, and education. They received an information booklet and participated in a two-day meeting with experts to reach a deliberation on the question "Should the National Health Service discourage or recommend PSA as an individual screening test for prostate cancer in men 55-69 years old?". A facilitator ran the jurors' discussion.All except three of the jurors decided that the National Health Service should discourage the use of PSA as an individual screening test for prostate cancer in 55-69 year-old men. The jury was particularly convinced by the uncertainty of the test outcomes, the utility of the test, and its cost/benefit ratio. Before the meeting 60% of jurors would have recommended the test to a relative, and all the male jurors would have done so. After the meeting these percentages fell to 15% and 12%.This experience confirms the feasibility and effectiveness of delegating to a group of citizens the responsibility to decide on public health issues on behalf of the community. Public health authorities should invest in information campaigns aimed at the public and in educational initiatives for physicians. This also provided an opportunity to disseminate information on screening, over-diagnosis, and over-treatment.

    Full Text Available A partir de etnografia realizada, entre 1997 e 2001, nos cinco Tribunais do Júri da cidade de São Paulo, questiono se tribunais, em geral, e os do júri, em particular, se esgotam como arenas de luta nas quais o binômio dominação-sujeição se realiza de forma privilegiada. Sustento que, embora observemos, nesses espaços, rituais que reiteram hierarquias tradicionalmente estabelecidas, eles também permitem a construção de novas subjetividades e a redefinição de experiências sociais. Os fatos-dramas reconstituídos nos júris estão longe de seus contextos originais tanto quanto da possibilidade de se explicarem legalmente. Eles são de outra natureza, cujo sentido só se alcança no domínio ritualizado, lúdico e poético de sua própria expressão.Ethnographical research carried out between 1997 and 2001 of the five Jury Courts in the city of São Paulo leads me to ask whether courts in general, and the Jury Court in particular, can be explained merely as arenas of conflict and privileged sites for the interplay of domination and subjection. Although in such places we can observe rituals that reinforce traditionally established hierarchies, they also allow for the construction of new subjectivities and the redefinition of social experiences. The facts/dramas reconstructed in the courts are as far removed from their original contexts as they are from the possibility of being explained from a legal perspective alone. They are of a different nature and their meaning can only be understood from within the ritual, playful and poetic domains of their own expression.

    2010-03-01

    Full Text Available This article discusses the potential for policy learning offered by participatory processes, specifically so-called citizens' juries. We establish the need for policy learning by pointing to the increased complexity of water management tasks and challenges. A conceptual discussion subsequently distinguishes between cognitive, normative, and relational learning. The public participation literature suggests that participatory processes will contribute to various forms of learning. We assess the truth of this assumption on the basis of three case studies: citizens' juries on water management in the Dutch part of Rhine basin. We analyze whether the three forms of learning have occurred among jurors, and among policy makers. We find high levels of cognitive, normative, and relational levels of learning for the jurors, but relatively low levels of learning for policy makers. We analyze the reason for this divergence.

    Citizens'/community juries [CJs] engage members of the public in policy decision-making processes. CJs can be employed to develop policy responses to health problems that require the consideration of both community values and scientific evidence. Based on the principles of deliberative democracy, recent reviews indicate that findings from CJs have successfully been used to influence health policy decision-making. Despite this evidence of success, there appears to be a gap between the goals of health researchers who organize CJs and the needs of policy actors and decision makers. Drawing on our experiences working with CJs and recent research on CJ methods, we describe a synopsis of the current state of the art organized around four key questions, and informed by insights from deliberative theory and critical policy studies. Our intention is to stimulate further discussion as to the types of health policy questions that can be usefully addressed through public deliberation, and provide guidance on the methodological and political dimensions that need to be considered in deciding whether a CJ is an appropriate approach for informing a policy decision-making process.

    Full Text Available RESUMEN Los concursos de ideas de arquitectura fallados por jurados participados por profesionales cualificados prestigian a las entidades que los promueven y a los arquitectos premiados. Pero también entrañan aspectos polémicos que ponen de relieve sus debilidades y que pocas veces son analizados con actitud crítica. Pese a todo, los arquitectos prefieren este sistema de adjudicación por cuanto les reporta el íntimo beneficio de ejercitarse en el proyecto de arquitectura con un margen de libertad poco viable en los encargos directos u otros tipos de concursos más codificados. El análisis de los parámetros que determinan un buen concurso; el binomio concurso–investigación; el alcance de la intervención de los jurados; el derroche de tanta actividad creativa; el trabajo no remunerado de los concursantes... En este artículo avanzamos una reflexión sobre algunos de estos temas a partir de las opiniones de relevantes arquitectos vinculados de uno u otro modo a estos procedimientos competitivos.SUMMARY Competitions of architectural ideas that are judged by professionally qualified juries bring prestige to the institutions that promote them and to the award-winning architects. However, controversial aspects are also involved that highlight the weaknesses of these competitions and which are rarely analysed critically. None the less, architects prefer this award system because of the concomitant benefit of practicing in architectural projects, with a margin of freedom that is unfeasible in direct commissions or other more codified competitions. The analysis of the parameters which determine a good competition involves: the competition-research relationship; the scope of intervention of the jurors; the involvement of so much creative activity; the unpaid work of the competitors, etc. In this article we put forward a reflection on some of these issues from the opinions of important architects linked in one way or another to these

    Social judgments are often influenced by racism. Voluntary crimes against life, and in particular the crime of homicide, may be the most critical situations of the impact of racism in social judgments. We analyzed 114 homicide trials conducted by the 1st Jury Court, in a Brazilian judicial capital, concluded between 2003 and 2007, for the purpose of investigating the effects of skin color and the socioeconomic status of the defendant and the victim of homicides in the jury trial court's decision. The results indicate that the social and economic profile of defendants and victims of homicide is identical. They are almost all poor (more than 70%), with low education (more than 73%) and frequently non-Whites (more than 88%). We found that judges assign longer sentences to black (β = .34, p = .01) and poor defendants (β = .23, p < .05). We even verified that the poorer the defendant, the higher was the corresponding conviction rate (Wald's Test = 5.90, p < .05). The results are discussed based on theories of social psychology and criminological sociology, which consider the relationship between skin color and socioeconomic status in social judgments and in discrimination.

    Contemporary food systems are vast and complex, creating greater distance between consumers and their food. Consequently, consumers are required to put faith in a system of which they have limited knowledge or control. Country of origin labelling (CoOL) is one mechanism that theoretically enables consumer knowledge of provenance of food products. However, this labelling system has recently come under Australian Government review and recommendations for improvements have been proposed. Consumer engagement in this process has been limited. Therefore this study sought to obtain further consumer opinion on the issue of CoOL and to identify the extent to which Australian consumers agree with Australian Government recommendations for improvements. A citizens' jury was conducted with a sample of 14 South Australian consumers to explore their perceptions on whether the CoOL system allows them to make informed food choices, as well as what changes (if any) need to be made to enable informed food choices (recommendations). Overall, jurors' perception of usefulness of CoOL, including its ability to enable consumers to make informed food choices, fluctuated throughout the Citizens' Jury. Initially, the majority of the jurors indicated that the labels allowed informed food choice, however by the end of the session the majority disagreed with this statement. Inconsistencies within jurors' opinions were observed, particularly following delivery of information from expert witnesses and jury deliberation. Jurors provided recommendations for changes to be made to CoOL, which were similar to those provided in the Australian Government inquiry. Consumers in this study engaged with the topical issue of CoOL and provided their opinions. Overall, consumers do not think that the current CoOL system in Australia enables consumers to make informed choices. Recommendations for changes, including increasing the size of the label and the label's font, and standardising its position, were made.

    尽管人民陪审员制度不可能解决我国司法体制改革和司法公正的所有根本性问题,但其所具有的重要司法民主价值和功能是值得重视的。在我国,围绕人民陪审员制度存在多种争议,同时其实践也显示出某些制度异化的迹象。这种情况与我国的治理传统和复杂的社会因素有关。为了更好地发挥人民陪审员制度的预期功能和目标,目前应避免简单追求数量与规模的扩张,注重从个案(尤其是重大刑事案件和死刑案件)的示范作用入手,循序渐进地推进民众对司法活动的有序参与,逐步畅通和规范普通民众参与司法的途径,孕育司法民主的文化氛围和社会基础。%Although the people's jury system can not solve all the fundamental issues in the judicial re-form and justice of our country,it has important judicial democratic values and functions which are worthy of attention.In China,there are several disputes around the people's jury system,while its practice also shows some signs of alienation of certain systems.This situation has something to do with the governance traditions and complex social factors of our country.In order to play the expected function and to reach the target of the people's jury system better,currently we should avoid simple pursuit of expansion in amount and scale,pay at-tention to start from the model function of individual cases (especially major criminal cases and death penalty cases),gradually promote the orderly public participation in the judicial activities,gradually smooth and regu-late the means of ordinary people's judicial participation,and nurture a cultural atmosphere and social founda-tions.of democracy and justice.

    在陪审制发展过程中总是伴随着对职业法官司法的批评以及对普通大众司法的批评,这种对立意见表现的是对两种司法模式中执掌权力之人的不信任。为协调这种冲突,丹麦在有利于发挥陪审制的作用、有利于保障被告人的合法权益的原则之下既保留陪审团制、又实施参审制,发展出独具特色的陪审制模式。%Development of jury system has always been accompanied with criticism of justice by professional judges and criticism of justice by ordinary mass. Such opposed positions reflect mistrust of those in control of power in the aforesaid two modes of justice. In order to mediate the conflict, Denmark has developed a unique jury system which keeps jury trial while applying mixed court system under the principle that legitimate interest of defendant should be protected and jury system should play an active role

    As part of a research study on the 1930s and 1940s medical-criminological debate in Brazil, this research paper analyzes some of the uses and criticisms of arguments of a psychiatric and criminological nature, among certain jurists who carried out important work in the city of Rio de Janeiro during the 1930s. In this context, these magistrates, tended to have significant psychiatric and criminological knowledge, in spite of all the heterogeneity, plurality and differences in perspectives that existed among them. We selected two principal areas to conduct an analysis of the activities of these jurists: the Appellate Court of the Federal District of Rio de Janeiro and Jury Trial Courts.

    Full Text Available A revista Cognitio Juris chega à sexta edição fiel ao seu compromisso de abordar e apresentar um saber dogmático jurídico multidisciplinar atual e engajado com as transformações sociais mais relevantes do nosso tempo e, segundo Tércio Sampaio Ferraz Junior, possibilitar que esse conhecimento jurídico ofereça formas para a decisão dos conflitos decorrentes do viver em sociedade. Afirmar que a doutrina jurídica não pode estar desconectada das transformações sociais é algo tão pueril como a afirmação em si. O que é relevante é a forma como ela se posiciona diante de tais transformações, o viés a ser adotado. A ordem jurídica constitucional da maioria dos países ocidentais erigiu os direitos fundamentais como sua base. O Brasil inclui-se nesta leva, acrescentando como outra pedra de toque de sua ordem constitucional o principio da dignidade da pessoa humana. O viés dos direitos fundamentais e da dignidade da pessoa humana é, portanto, a opção do modelo constitucional brasileiro e revela eloquentemente para o doutrinador a instrumentalidade do direito, ou seja, o direito como de meio de tutela e garantia do valor da pessoa humana sobre todos os demais valores e não o inverso. É com este fundamento constitucional que o conhecimento jurídico oferecido e abordado na Cognitio Juris se lastreia e se propõe. Vivemos tempos em que as estruturas sociais, influenciadas por inúmeras variantes, entre elas uma forte economia de mercado, desumanizam as relações e as pessoas. Vivemos, segundo Zygmunt Bauman, numa modernidade líquida, assim caracterizada em razão da volatilidade e facilidade com que os líquidos mudam de forma, e, por conta desta natureza, de não se solidificarem.

    Recent research with college undergraduate mock jurors suggests that how psychopathic they perceive a criminal defendant to be is a powerful predictor of whether they will support a death verdict in simulated capital murder trials. Perceived affective and interpersonal traits of psychopathy are especially predictive of support for capital punishment, with perceived remorselessness explaining a disproportionate amount of variance in these attitudes. The present study attempted to extend these findings with a more representative sample of community members called for jury duty (N = 304). Jurors reviewed a case vignette based on an actual capital murder trial, provided sentencing verdicts, and rated the defendant on several characteristics historically associated with the construct of psychopathy. Consistent with prior findings, remorselessness predicted death verdicts, as did the affective and interpersonal features of psychopathy - though the latter effect was more pronounced among jurors who were Caucasian and/or who described their political beliefs as moderate rather than conservative or liberal. Results are discussed in terms of the potentially stigmatizing effects of psychopathy evidence in capital cases.

  17. Tempest in a Teapot – The Role of the Decision Tree in Enhancing Juror Comprehension and Whether It Interferes with the Jury’s Right to Deliberate Freely?

    2016-06-01

    Full Text Available This article explores the potential of the decision tree (also referred to as a flow-chart, “Route to Verdict” or question-trail to improve the legal comprehension of jurors in criminal trials. It examines why the decision tree has not yet been adopted as a mainstream jury aid in the United States and suggests that the hesitancy is rooted in longstanding distrust of any attempt to encroach on the freedom of the jury and the concern that a list of questions to guide jury deliberations may unduly influence and compel a verdict that the jury would not otherwise render. The findings from research from England, Canada, Australia and the United States on the effectiveness of decision trees in enhancing juror comprehension is discussed. The reliance on decision trees in medicine to facilitate patient comprehension of treatment options and in assisting physicians to navigate through complex treatment protocols is also considered as instructive for the legal system. The paper suggests that decision trees neither interfere with a defendant’s constitutional right to a jury trial nor with a jury’s right to deliberate freely, and that greater use of this tool should be considered given the promising indications from empirical research that decision trees can enhance jurors’ recall and comprehension of legal concepts. Any concerns about the potential misuse of decision trees are overstated and can be remedied through clear instructions to the jury. En este artículo se analiza el potencial del árbol de decisiones (también conocido como diagrama de flujo, “ruta al veredicto” o camino de preguntas para mejorar la comprensión legal de los miembros del jurado en los juicios penales. Analiza por qué en Estados Unidos aún no se ha adoptado el árbol de decisiones como una ayuda habitual al jurado y sugiere que la duda tiene sus raíces en la desconfianza antigua de cualquier intento de invadir la libertad del jurado y en la preocupación de que

    While Einstein's theory of relativity ultimately laid the foundation for modern studies of the universe, it took a long time to be accepted. Between 1905 and 1930, relativity was poorly understood and Einstein worked hard to try to make it more accessible to scientists and scientifically literate laypeople. Its acceptance was largely due to the astronomy community, which undertook precise measurements to test Einstein's astronomical predictions. The well-known 1919 British eclipse expeditions that made Einstein famous did not convince most scientists to accept relativity. The 1920s saw numerous attempts to measure light-bending, as well as solar line displacements and even ether-drift. How astronomers approached the ``Einstein problem'' in these early years before and after the First World War, and how the public reacted to what they reported, helped to shape attitudes we hold today about Einstein and his ideas.

    Although it has been more than a year since the FDA approved the use of olestra in certain foods, this fat substitute, a mixture of sucrose polyesters, is still controversial. It would seem that a fat substitute that is heat stable and has an acceptable flavor and texture would be welcomed enthusiastically in a country where increasing numbers of people, young and old, exceed their ideal body weight. Obesity and diets containing high levels of fat have been linked to numerous health problems, including cardiovascular diseases, certain types of cancer, and adult-onset diabetes; they may also exacerbate some chronic problems such as arthritis in joints of the lower extremities. Nevertheless, some scientists and consumer groups question olestra's safety and usefulness.

    近年来,中国立法和公共决策过程中民众参与听证会、法律草案评论等情形使得民众参与日益具有促进立法和公共决策的民主化功能。作为民主的产物,陪审团审判具有非职业性、社区代表性、公正性等特点,这些特点使得它具有4方面的价值功能:有利于发现案件事实真相,实现实体公正;作为一道屏障,介于被告人与国家权力之间,保护被告人权益免受侵害;提高公民素质、塑造国民性格、培养法治观念;提升审判公信力。陪审团审判制度为民众分享政府职能提供了有价值的机会,给刑事司法注入了大众价值观,增加了实现正义和防止政府滥用职权的可能性,强化了刑事司法裁判的权威性,是政府运作中民众参与的象征。%In recent years, public participation in hearings and review of the draft law in China's legislative and public policy-making process has shown "democratization" function of people's participation in legislation and public policy making. As a product of democracy, a jury trial with the characteristics of non-occupation, community representation and justice has the value of four functions: discovering the facts of cases so as to achieve substantive justice, protecting the rights of the defendant from infringement as a barrier medium between the defendant and the state power, improving the quality of citizens, shaping the national character, cultivating the rule of law, and enhancing the credibility of the trial. The jury trial system provides a very valuable opportunity for the public to share governmental functions. It instills the public values into the criminal justice, increases the possibility of achieving justice and prevents the possibility of government's abuse of power and strengthens the authority of criminal justice. It is the symbol of public participation in government operation.

    It is common belief that Einstein’s general theory of relativity won worldwide acceptance after British astronomers announced in November 1919 that the sun’s gravitational field bends starlight by an amount predicted by Einstein. This paper demonstrates that the case for Einstein was not settled until much later and that there was considerable confusion and debate about relativity during this period. Most astronomers considered Einstein’s general theory too metaphysical and abstruse, and many tried to find more conventional explanations of the astronomical observations. Two American announcements before the British results appeared had been contrary to Einstein’s prediction. They came from Lick and Mt. Wilson observatories, which enjoyed international reputations as two of the most advanced astrophysical research establishments in the world. Astronomers at these renowned institutions were instrumental in swaying the court of scientific opinion during the decade of the 1920s, which saw numerous attempts to measure light-bending, as well as solar line displacements and even ether-drift. How astronomers approached the “Einstein problem” in these early years before and after the First World War, and how the public reacted to what they reported, helped to shape attitudes we hold today about Einstein and his ideas.

    Full Text Available In Kafka’s Before the Law, a man is arrested for a crime unknown to him and is tried in a court he does not recognize. To help explain the situation to the bewildered prisoner, a parable is related about a man seeking admittance to the Law. He comes before the gate of the Law and is told by the gatekeeper that it is possible to enter, but not at that moment. The man pleads with the gatekeeper but is denied entry. He spends his entire life before the gate, and just before his death, asks the gatekeeper, “Everyone strives after the law . . . , so how does it happen that in these many years no one but myself has ever begged admittance?” The gatekeeper sees that the man is near death, and shouts at him, “No one else could ever be admitted here, since this gate was made only for you. I am now going to shut it.”

    Optimisation of product noise is an interative process which is decided by humans when all is said and done. This means that product noise must pass subjective hearing tests - which as a rule are time-consuming, indirect and expensive as compared with direct objective measurements. In consequence, objective metric tests based on psychoacoustic research are very attractive. They are low-cost and fast, but they can replace subjective tests only if subjective judgement is modelled correctly. (orig.)

    Full Text Available This study aimed to establish baseline data for injury prevalence,mechanism of injury, injury severity and management of injuries in netball playersin South Africa. A cross sectional descriptive design was employed to collect databy means of a questionnaire in 2010. Participants consisted of 254 netball playerswho participated in a netball tournament. Permission was obtained from all therelevant organizations and informed consent obtained from the participants. Thegeneral injury rate was 61.8% with an injury rate of 1.9 injuries per player forthe past season. The most commonly injured structures were the ankle 37.5 % andthe knee 28.6% with the most common mechanism of injury being landing, 19% and 29% respectively. Of those whosustained injuries, 86 (44% of the injured athletes’ sustained severe injuries, 31(16% sustained moderate injuriesand 78 (40% sustained mild injuries. 67% of players reported they were able to continue with the game and 33%received medical assistance losing game and training time. The most common form of management accessed wasphysiotherapy, which accounted for 31%. It is evident that the ankle and knee injury rates amongst South Africannetball players are high in comparison to other netball playing nations. Injury surveillance is an integral part ofdeveloping preventative measures. The article lays a platform for developing these strategies against the backdrop ofits findings and comparison with other authors.

    CERN Document Server

    2016-01-01

    A common form of competition is one where judges grade contestants' performances which are then compiled to determine the final ranking of the contestants. Unlike in another common form of competition where two contestants play a head-to-head match to produce a winner as in football or basketball, the objectivity of judges are prone to be questioned, potentially undermining the public's trust in the fairness of the competition. In this work we show, by modeling the judge--contestant competition as a weighted bipartite network, how we can identify biased scores and measure their impact on our inference of the network structure. Analyzing the prestigious International Chopin Piano Competition of 2015 with a well-publicized scoring controversy as an example, we show that even a single statistically uncharacteristic score can be enough to gravely distort our inference of the community structure, demonstrating the importance of detecting and eliminating biases. In the process we also find that there does not exist...

  10. Attorney Questions Predict Jury-eligible Adult Assessments of Attorneys, Child Witnesses, and Defendant Guilt.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Mugno, Allison P; Klemfuss, J Zoe; Lyon, Thomas D

    2016-01-01

    Children are often the primary source of evidence in maltreatment cases, particularly cases of child sexual abuse, and may be asked to testify in court. Although best-practice protocols for interviewing children suggest that interviewers ask open-ended questions to elicit detailed responses from children, during in-court testimony, attorneys tend to rely on closed-ended questions that elicit simple (often "yes" or "no") responses (e.g., Andrews, Lamb, & Lyon, ; Klemfuss, Quas, & Lyon, ). How then are jurors making decisions about children's credibility and ultimately the case outcome? The present study examined the effect of two attorney-specific factors (e.g., temporal structure and questioning phase) on mock jurors' perceptions of attorney performance, child witness credibility, storyline clarity, and defendant guilt. Participants were randomly assigned to read a trial excerpt from one of eight conditions and were then asked to evaluate the attorney, child witness, and the case. Selected excerpts were from criminal court case transcripts and contained either high attorney temporal structure (e.g., use of temporal markers) or low temporal structure (e.g., frequent topic switching), involved direct or cross-examination, and represented cases resulting in a conviction or acquittal. Child responses were kept consistent across all excerpts. Results showed that participants perceived the attorney's performance and child's credibility more favorably and thought the storyline was clearer when attorneys provided high rather than low temporal structure and when the excerpt contained direct rather than cross-examination. Participants who read a direct rather than cross-examination excerpt were also more likely to think the defendant was guilty. The study highlights the impact of attorney questioning style on mock jurors' perceptions. Copyright © 2016 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.

    The most recent systematic literature reviews and meta-analyses have indicated significant and nutritionally-relevant composition differences between organic and conventional foods. This included higher antioxidant, but lower cadmium and pesticide levels in organic crops, and higher omega-3 fatty acids concentrations in organic meat and dairy products. Also, results from a small number of human cohort studies indicate that there are positive associations between organic food consumption and reduced risk/incidence of certain acute diseases (e.g. pre-eclampsia, hypospadias) and obesity. Concerns about potential negative health impacts of organic food consumption (e.g. risks linked to lower iodine levels in organic milk) have also been raised, but are not currently supported by evidence from human cohort studies. However, there is virtually no published data from (1) long-term cohort studies focusing on chronic diseases (e.g. cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancer, and neurodegenerative conditions) and (2) controlled human dietary intervention studies comparing effects of organic and conventional diets. It is therefore currently not possible to quantify to what extent organic food consumption may affect human health.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Gouy, Richard; Baurain, Denis; Philippe, Hervé

    2015-01-01

    This article aims to shed light on difficulties in rooting the tree of life (ToL) and to explore the (sociological) reasons underlying the limited interest in accurately addressing this fundamental issue. First, we briefly review the difficulties plaguing phylogenetic inference and the ways to improve the modelling of the substitution process, which is highly heterogeneous, both across sites and over time. We further observe that enriched taxon samplings, better gene samplings and clever data removal strategies have led to numerous revisions of the ToL, and that these improved shallow phylogenies nearly always relocate simple organisms higher in the ToL provided that long-branch attraction artefacts are kept at bay. Then, we note that, despite the flood of genomic data available since 2000, there has been a surprisingly low interest in inferring the root of the ToL. Furthermore, the rare studies dealing with this question were almost always based on methods dating from the 1990s that have been shown to be inaccurate for much more shallow issues! This leads us to argue that the current consensus about a bacterial root for the ToL can be traced back to the prejudice of Aristotle's Great Chain of Beings, in which simple organisms are ancestors of more complex life forms. Finally, we demonstrate that even the best models cannot yet handle the complexity of the evolutionary process encountered both at shallow depth, when the outgroup is too distant, and at the level of the inter-domain relationships. Altogether, we conclude that the commonly accepted bacterial root is still unproven and that the root of the ToL should be revisited using phylogenomic supermatrices to ensure that new evidence for eukaryogenesis, such as the recently described Lokiarcheota, is interpreted in a sound phylogenetic framework.

However, the influence of the aortic reflected pulse pressure wave on left ventricular function has not been well characterized. The aim of this study was to obtain detailed information on regional ventricular wall motion patterns corresponding to the propagation of the reflected aortic wave on ventricular segments.Methods: Left ventricular wall motion was investigated in a group of healthy volunteers (n = 14, age 23 ± 3 years, using cardiac magnetic resonance navigator-gated tissue phase mapping. The left ventricle was divided into 16 segments and regional wall motion was studied in high temporal detail.Results: Corresponding to the expected timing of the reflected aortic wave reaching the left ventricle, a characteristic “notch” of regional myocardial motion was seen in all radial, circumferential, and longitudinal velocity graphs. This notch was particularly prominent in septal segments adjacent to the left ventricular outflow tract on radial velocity graphs and in anterior and posterior left ventricular segments on circumferential velocity graphs. Similarly, longitudinal velocity graphs demonstrated a brief deceleration in the upward recoil motion of the entire ventricle at the beginning of diastole.Conclusion: These results provide new insights into the possible influence of the reflected aortic waves on ventricular segments. Although the association with the reflected wave appears to us to be unambiguous, it represents a novel research concept, and further studies enabling the actual recording of the pulse wave are required.Keywords: arterial pressure wave, reflected wave, ventricular wall motion, cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging, tissue phase mapping

  20. How justice can affect jury: training abstract words promotes generalisation to concrete words in patients with aphasia.

    Sandberg, Chaleece; Kiran, Swathi

    2014-01-01

    Developing language treatments that not only improve trained items but also promote generalisation to untrained items is a major focus in aphasia research. This study is a replication and extension of previous work which found that training abstract words in a particular context-category promotes generalisation to concrete words but not vice versa (Kiran, Sandberg, & Abbott, 2009 ). Twelve persons with aphasia (five female) with varying types and degrees of severity participated in a generative naming treatment based on the Complexity Account of Treatment Efficacy (CATE; Thompson, Shapiro, Kiran, & Sobecks, 2003 ). All participants were trained to generate abstract words in a particular context-category by analysing the semantic features of the target words. Two other context-categories were used as controls. Ten of the twelve participants improved on the trained abstract words in the trained context-category. Eight of the ten participants who responded to treatment also generalised to concrete words in the same context-category. These results suggest that this treatment is both efficacious and efficient. We discuss possible mechanisms of training and generalisation effects.

  7. How hepatitis C virus counteracts the interferon response: the jury is still out on NS5A.

    Interferons (IFNs) induce an antiviral state in the cell through complex and indirect mechanisms, which culminate in a direct inhibition of viral replication and stimulation of the host adaptive responses. Viruses often counteract with elaborate strategies to interfere with the induction as well as action of IFN effector molecules. This evolutionary battle between viruses and IFN components is a subject of intense research aimed at understanding the immunopathogenesis of viruses and the molecular basis of IFN signaling and action. In the case with hepatitis C virus (HCV), this may have profound implications for the therapeutic use of recombinant IFN in treating chronic hepatitis C. Depending on the subtype of HCV, current IFN-based treatment regimens are effective for only a small subset of chronic hepatitis C patients. Thus, one of the Holy Grails in HCV research is to understand the mechanisms by which the virus may evade IFN antiviral surveillance and establish persistent infection, which may eventually provide insights into new avenues for better antiviral therapy. Despite the lack of an efficient tissue culture system and an appropriate animal model for HCV infection, several mechanisms have been proposed based on clinical studies and in vitro experiments. This minireview focuses on the HCV NS5A nonstructural protein, which is implicated in playing a role in HCV tolerance to IFN treatment, possibly in part through its ability to inhibit the cellular IFN-induced PKR protein kinase.

    As the leading cause of disease-related deaths,cancer is a major public health threat worldwide.Surgical resection is still the first-line therapy for patients with early-stage cancers.However,postoperative relapse and metastasis remain the cause of 90%of deaths of patients with solid organ malignancies,including hepatocellular carcinoma(HCC).With the rapid development of molecular biology techniques in recent years,molecularly targeted therapies using monoclonal antibodies,small molecules,and vaccines have become a milestone in cancer therapeutic by significantly improv-ing the survival of cancer patients,and have opened a window of hope for patients with advanced cancer.Hypervascularization is a major characteristic of HCC.It has been reported that anti-angiogenic treatments,which inhibit blood vessel formation,are highly effective for treating HCC.However,the efficacy and safety of anti-angiogenesis therapies remain controversial.Sorafenib is an oral multikinase inhibitor with antiproliferative and anti-angiogenic effects and is the first molecular target drug approved for the treatment of advanced HCC.While sorafenib has shown promising therapeutic effects,substantial evidence of primary and acquired resistance to sorafenib has been reported.Numerous clinical trials have been conducted to evaluate a large number of molecularly targeted drugs for treating HCC,but most drugs exhibited less efficacy and/or higher toxicity compared to sorafenib.Therefore,understanding the mechanism(s)underlying sorafenib resistance of cancer cells is highlighted for efficiently treating HCC.This concise review aims to provide an overview of anti-angiogenesis therapy in the management of HCC and to discuss the common mechanisms of resistance to anti-angiogenesis therapies.

    In this paper, the authors propose a new model for active contours segmentation in a given image, based on Mumford-Shah functional (Mumford and Shah, 1989). The model is composed of a system of differential and integral equations. By the experimental results we can keep the advantages of Chan and Vese's model (Chan and Vese, 2001) and avoid the regularization for Dirac function. More importantly, in theory we prove that the system has a unique viscosity solution.

    Sharing the same filtering function, LSAT and its corresponding Chinese version JMT are capable of being studied comparatively. Historically, LSAT was the by-product of Measure Movement and motivated by law school recruitment departments, while JMT was affiliated to new-born JM system and took place at the same time JM was founded. As for the content of both assessments, LSAT is essentially an aptitude test and JMT is an achievement examination. LSAT is future-oriented by predicting test takers’ability and aptitude of learning and practicing law, while JMT is a backforward test which indicates law competence achieved previously by testees. Those mentioned features of LSAT in the present paper could inspire the future reform of JMT.%基于美国LSAT与我国法律硕士联考所具功能的一致性,本文对二者展开比较研究。从历史角度看,LSAT是标准化考试进程与法学院招生需求扩张的产物,法硕联考则附属于法硕制度的产生;考核内容方面,LSAT注重对于学能的评定,测试内容与学科专业知识无关,法硕联考则以法律专业知识的掌握情况为检验标准;评价取向方面,LSAT旨在预测申请者学习法律或是从事法律职业的潜质,具有前瞻性,法硕联考是对具体法律专业知识识记、理解、应用能力的总结,具有检测性。LSAT的评价理念对于我国法硕联考改革有一定的借鉴意义。

  8. Multiphase Systems for Medical Image Region Classification

    Science.gov (United States)

    Garamendi, J. F.; Malpica, N.; Schiavi, E.

    2009-05-01

    Variational methods for region classification have shown very promising results in medical image analysis. The Chan-Vese model is one of the most popular methods, but its numerical resolution is slow and it has serious drawbacks for most multiphase applications. In this work, we extend the link, stablished by Chambolle, between the two classes binary Chan-Vese model and the Rudin-Osher-Fatemi (ROF) model to a multiphase four classes minimal partition problem. We solve the ROF image restoration model and then we threshold the image by means of a genetic algorithm. This strategy allows for a more efficient algorithm due to the fact that only one well posed elliptic problem is solved instead of solving the coupled parabolic equations arising in the original multiphase Chan-Vese model.

    To describe the Inala Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Community Jury for Health Research, and evaluate its usefulness as a model of Indigenous research governance within an urban Indigenous primary health care service from the perspectives of jury members and researchers. Informed by a phenomenological approach and using narrative inquiry, a focus group was conducted with jury members and key informant interviews were undertaken with researchers who had presented to the Community Jury in its first year of operation. The jury was a site of identity work for researchers and jury members, providing an opportunity to observe and affirm community cultural protocols. Although researchers and jury members had differing levels of research literacy, the jury processes enabled respectful communication and relationships to form, which positively influenced research practice, community aspirations and clinical care. The jury processes facilitated transformative research practice among researchers and resulted in transference of power from researchers to the jury members, to the mutual benefit of both. Ethical Indigenous health research practice requires an engagement with Indigenous peoples and knowledge at the research governance level, not simply as subjects or objects of research. © 2015 The Authors.

  10. Image segmentation and selective smoothing by using Mumford-Shah model.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Gao, Song; Bui, Tien D

    2005-10-01

    Recently, Chan and Vese developed an active contour model for image segmentation and smoothing by using piecewise constant and smooth representation of an image. Tsai et al. also independently developed a segmentation and smoothing method similar to the Chan and Vese piecewise smooth approach. These models are active contours based on the Mumford-Shah variational approach and the level-set method. In this paper, we develop a new hierarchical method which has many advantages compared to the Chan and Vese multiphase active contour models. First, unlike previous works, the curve evolution partial differential equations (PDEs) for different level-set functions are decoupled. Each curve evolution PDE is the equation of motion of just one level-set function, and different level-set equations of motion are solved in a hierarchy. This decoupling of the motion equations of the level-set functions speeds up the segmentation process significantly. Second, because of the coupling of the curve evolution equations associated with different level-set functions, the initialization of the level sets in Chan and Vese's method is difficult to handle. In fact, different initial conditions may produce completely different results. The hierarchical method proposed in this paper can avoid the problem due to the choice of initial conditions. Third, in this paper, we use the diffusion equation for denoising. This method, therefore, can deal with very noisy images. In general, our method is fast, flexible, not sensitive to the choice of initial conditions, and produces very good results.

    Objective To observe the short-term and long-term effects of selflurane preconditioning on ce⁃rebral ischemia reperfusion injury in rats. Methods Forty healthy adult male SD rats were divided randomly into group A (sevoflurane preconditioning group) and group B (control group). There were 20 rats in each group.2% sevoflurane was inhalated 30 min before ischemia in sevoflurane preconditioning group. The rat model of middle cerebral artery occlusion was established. The blood flow was blocked 60 min later, the line was pulled out and the brain reperfused. One month later the rats were given the assessment of neural cognitive be⁃havioral recovery, including empty field experiment and water maze behavioral testing. The body weights of rats were recorded before ischemia and after reperfusion 24 h later; The nerve function defect score was recorded af⁃ter reperfusion 24 h later; Blood gas analysis was recorded before and after inhalation sevoflurane. Blood sugar of both groups were recorded before and after ischemia; cognitive behavioral tests were done, including empty field experiment and water maze experiment. Results Nerve function defect scores of 1, 2 and 3 in group A after ischemia reperfusion were 4, 10 and 6, while 0, 6 and 14 in group B. The difference between group A and group B was statistically significant (P<0.05). Blood sugar in group A before ischemia was (5.84±0.35) mmol/L, while (8.94 ± 0.46) mmol/L after ischemia(P<0.05); Blood sugar in group B before ischemia was (5.76 ± 0.42) mmol/L, while (12.9 ± 0.69) mmol/L after ischemia(P<0.05). The difference of blood sugar after ischemia be⁃tween group A and group B was statistically significant (P<0.05).

    目的:探讨CB1大麻素受体激动剂在大鼠脊髓损伤后对血-脊髓屏障通透性调节的作用。方法将150只雌性SD大鼠随机分为假手术组( Sham组)、脊髓损伤组( SCI组)和CB1激动剂处理组( ACEA组)。采用改良Allen法建立T9脊髓损伤实验动物模型。 Sham组仅行T9椎板切除术,SCI组和ACEA组以30 g·cm致伤力制作模型。 ACEA组建模成功后,每日腹腔给药ACEA 3mg/(kg·d);Sham组和SCI组以生理盐水代替。建模术后12、24、72 h分时段处死动物,取T8~T10脊髓节段,Evans蓝含量测定法检测SCI后血-脊髓屏障通透性变化,定量RT-PCR法检测脊髓组织基质金属蛋白酶9(MMP9)表达水平。结果 Sham组脊髓通透性无改变,脊髓组织中无Evans蓝渗入,ACEA组Evans蓝通过血-脊髓屏障渗漏至脊髓,但渗漏量明显低于SCI组。 ACEA组MMP9表达水平显著低于Sci组。结论 CB1受体激动剂ACEA能降低Allen′s大鼠脊髓损伤模型血-脊髓屏障的破坏,其作用机制可能与MMP9的表达下调相关。%Objective To investigate whether the CB1 cannabinoid receptor agonist has regulating effect on permeability of blood spi-nal cord barrier( BSCB) after spinal cord injury( SCI) in rat model. Methods Totally 150 female SD rats were randomly divided into three groups,including sham operation group(Sham group),spinal cord injury group(SCI group)and ACEA treatment group(ACEA group). Modified Allen′s method was carried out at T9 level spinal segment for SCI group and ACEA group to induce acute SCI. While Sham group only underwent laminectomy. Rats in ACEA group were treated with ACEA 3 mg/( kg·d) after surgery until killed. After modeling,the animals were sacrificed at 12,24 and 72 hours,and the level of permeability for BSC was detected by Evans blue assay at T8-T10. The expression level of MMP9 was detected by quantitative RT-PCR method. Results There was no change in the permeabil-ity of BSCB for the Sham group,no Evans blue in the spinal cord tissues,and the Evans blue in the ACEA group was significantly lower than that in SCI group. The expression level of MMP9 in ACEA group was significantly lower than that in SCI group. Conclusion CB1 receptor agonist ACEA can reduce the damage of blood spinal cord barrier in rats with spinal cord injury induced by Allen′s,and its mechanism may be related to the down-regulated expression of MMP9 expression.

    Objective To observe the effect of penetrative needling of “Baihui”(GV 20)to “Qubin”(GB 7)on neuro-logic functions and expression of tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α,interleukin (IL)-6 and toll-like receptor 4 (TLR-4,involving in in-flammatory reactions)in the tissue around the local cerebral hematoma in rats with intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH),so as to pro-vide evidence for clinical treatment of ICH.Methods Fifty-four male Wistar rats were randomly divided into sham control,mo-del and acupuncture groups,and then further divided into three time-point subgroups (1 ,3,7 days after modeling,n = 6/sub-group).The ICH model was established by injection of the rat’s autoblood (50 μL)into the putaman region (P:0.2 mm,R:3.5 mm)in a stereotaxic apparatus and confirmed by Berderson’s neurologic examination grading system (0-3 points).The neuro-logic function was assessed by using Longa’s scoring (5-points)and footfault asymmetry testing [footfault index=(contra faults-ipsi faults)/total steps in 2 min].For penetrative needling,an acupuncture needle was inserted into GV 20 and controlled to ad-vance to GB 7 on the affected side and retained for 30 min,once daily.The expression of TNF-α,IL-6 and TLR-4 in the cerebral tissue around the putaman was detected by immunohistochemistry.Results After penetrative needling stimulation,the increased Longa’s score and footfault asymmetry score in ICH rats were significantly decreased on day 1 ,3 and 7 after modeling (P <0.0 1 ),suggesting an improvement of neurologic function after the treatment.Immunohistochemical staining outcomes of the cerebral tissue surrounding the autoblood injection site showed that the expression levels of TNF-α,IL-6 and TLR-4 proteins on day 1 ,3 and 7 were considerably higher in the model group than in the control group (P <0.0 1 ),and markedly lower in the acupunc-ture group than in the model group (P <0.0 1 ),suggesting a suppression of the proinflammatory factors and TLR-4 levels around the locus of the brain after needling intervention.A positive correlation existed between the expression levels of TLR-4 and IL-6/TNF-α.Conclusion Penetrative needling stimulation of GV 20 to GB 7 can reduce the levels of proinflammatory factors TNF-αand IL-6,and TLR-4 in the ICH tissues in rats with cerebral hemorrhage,which may contribute to its effect in improving neurologi-cal function.%目的::探讨针刺“百会”透“曲鬓”穴拮抗急性脑出血大鼠炎性损伤的作用机制。方法:54只 Wis-tar大鼠随机分为假手术组、模型组及针刺组,每组按造模后1、3、7 d 分为3个亚组,每组6只。采用自体血注入法建立脑出血大鼠模型。针刺组取“百会”透患侧“曲鬓”进行治疗,24 h 治疗1次。采用 Longa 评分法及肢体对称实验评分法对脑出血后大鼠神经功能进行评估,采用免疫组化法检测脑出血组织 Toll 样受体4(TLR-4)、肿瘤坏死因子(TNF-α)、白介素(IL)-6的阳性表达。结果:模型组大鼠脑出血损伤后出现不同程度的神经功能缺损症状表现,术后3 d 大鼠神经功能缺损最重;针刺后神经功能缺损明显减轻,针刺组各时间点与模型组比较差异有统计学意义(P <0.01)。在各时间点假手术组大鼠脑组织可见少量 TNF-α、TLR-4、IL-6阳性表达;模型组在各时间点 TNF-α、TLR-4、IL-6阳性表达均高于假手术组(P <0.01);针刺组在各时间点与模型组比较,TNF-α、TLR-4、IL-6阳性表达明显下调(P <0.01)。TLR-4与 IL-6表达呈正相关,TLR-4与 TNF-α表达呈正相关。结论:针刺“百会”透“曲鬓”穴可以抑制 TLR-4蛋白的表达,降低血肿组织中炎性因子 TNF-α、IL-6的含量,减轻脑出血后炎性损伤,改善大鼠神经功能缺损表现。

  16. Incorporating Prior Shape into Geometric Active Contours for Face Contour Detection

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    HUANGFuzhen; SUJianbo; XIYugeng

    2004-01-01

    In this paper a new method that incorporates prior shape information into geometric active contours for face contour detection is proposed. As in general a human face can be treated as an ellipse with a little shape variation, the prior face shape is represented as an elliptical curve. By combining the prior face shape with the powerful geometric active model proposed by Chan and Vese, the improved geometric active model can retain all the advantage of the Chan-Vese model and can detect face contours in images with complex backgrounds accurately even if the image is noisy. Moreover, by implementing the new model in a variational level set framework, automatic topological changes of the model can be achieved naturally and the transformation parameters that map the face boundary to the prior shape can be roughly estimated simultaneously. The experimental results show our procedure to be eiTicient.

    Accounting for static phased-mission systems (PMS) and imperfect coverage (IPC), generalized and integrated algorithm (GPMS-CPR) implemented a synthesis of several approaches into a single methodology whose advantages were in the low computational complexity, broad applicability, and easy implementation. The approach is extended into analysis of each phase in the whole mission. Based on Fussell-Vesely importance measure, a simple and efficient importance measure is presented to analyze component's importance of phased-mission systems considering imperfect coverage.

    Full Text Available For over a generation courts have recognized that failing to instruct juries on lesser included offenses results in wrongful convictions. In Beck v. Alabama, the Supreme Court held that in capital cases juries must be instructed on the option of returning convictions of non-capital lesser included offenses. The Court explained that this right prevents juries from being forced to make all-or-nothing choices between guilt and innocence in cases where serious crimes have been committed and pressures to convict of some crime are great.

  17. How common is "common knowledge" about child witnesses among legal professionals? Comparing interviewers, public defenders, and forensic psychologists with laypeople.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Buck, Julie A; Warren, Amye R; Bruck, Maggie; Kuehnle, Kathryn

    2014-01-01

    The present study evaluates the knowledge of jury-eligible college students (n = 192), investigative interviewers (n = 44), forensic psychologists (n = 39), and public defenders (n = 137) in regard to the research on interviewing children. These groups' knowledge was compared with the scientific research on the impact of interview techniques and practices on the accuracy of child witnesses. Jury-eligible students were the least knowledgeable, but their accuracy varied widely across items. Both interviewers and public defenders performed better than jury-eligible students, but they lacked substantial knowledge about the research on interviewing children on certain topics (e.g., using anatomically detailed dolls); forensic psychologists were the most knowledgeable. These findings suggest that professionals in the legal system need substantial professional development regarding the research on interviewing strategies with child witnesses. They also highlight the need for experts to provide case-relevant information to juries who lack basic information about the validity and reliability of children's reports.

When a person is averse towards such ambiguities, he increases the probability of the unfavorable outcome to reflect that fear.

  7. Interactive breast mass segmentation using a convex active contour model with optimal threshold values.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Acho, Sussan Nkwenti; Rae, William Ian Duncombe

    2016-10-01

    A convex active contour model requires a predefined threshold value to determine the global solution for the best contour to use when doing mass segmentation. Fixed thresholds or manual tuning of threshold values for optimum mass boundary delineation are impracticable. A proposed method is presented to determine an optimized mass-specific threshold value for the convex active contour derived from the probability matrix of the mass with the particle swarm optimization method. We compared our results with the Chan-Vese segmentation and a published global segmentation model on masses detected on direct digital mammograms. The regional term of the convex active contour model maximizes the posterior partitioning probability for binary segmentation. Suppose the probability matrix is binary thresholded using the particle swarm optimization to obtain a value T1, we define the optimal threshold value for the global minimizer of the convex active contour as the mean intensity of all pixels whose probabilities are greater than T1. The mean Jaccard similarity indices were 0.89±0.07 for the proposed/Chan-Vese method and 0.88±0.06 for the proposed/published segmentation model. The mean Euclidean distance between Fourier descriptors of the segmented areas was 0.05±0.03 for the proposed/Chan-Vese method and 0.06±0.04 for the proposed/published segmentation model. This efficient method avoids problems of initial level set contour placement and contour re-initialization. Moreover, optimum segmentation results are realized for all masses improving on the fixed threshold value of 0.5 proposed elsewhere. Copyright © 2016 Associazione Italiana di Fisica Medica.

  9. Colour image segmentation by the vector-valued Allen-Cahn phase-field model: a multigrid solution

    CERN Document Server

    Kay, David A

    2007-01-01

    We propose a new method for the numerical solution of a PDE-driven model for colour image segmentation and give numerical examples of the results. The method combines the vector-valued Allen-Cahn phase field equation with initial data fitting terms. This method is known to be closely related to the Mumford-Shah problem and the level set segmentation by Chan and Vese. Our numerical solution is performed using a multigrid splitting of a finite element space, thereby producing an efficient and robust method for the segmentation of large images.

  10. Noncooperative Iris Segmentation

    Full Text Available In noncooperative iris recognition one should deal with uncontrolled behavior of the subject as well as uncontrolled lighting conditions. That means eyelids and eyelashes occlusion, non uniform intensities, reflections, imperfect focus, and orientation among the others are to be considered. To cope with this situation a noncooperative iris segmentation algorithm based on numerically stable direct least squares fitting of ellipses model and modified Chan-Vese model (local binary fitting energy with variational level set formulation is to be proposed. The proposed algorithm is tested using CASIA-IrisV3.

However, the operation of a domestic discount in regard to death penalty sentencing has been rarely examined. The current research uses a near-population of jury decisions in capital murder trials conducted in North Carolina from 1991 to 2009 (n = 800), and a series of logistic regression analyses to determine whether there is (a) a direct effect between offender-victim relationship (e.g., domestic, friend/acquaintance, and stranger) and jury decision making, and/or (b) whether domestic offender-victim relationship (as well as other offender-victim relationships) moderates the effect of legal and extralegal case characteristics on jury assessment of the death penalty. Our findings revealed no empirical support for a "domestic discount" whereby juries are less likely to impose death sentences in cases involving domestic homicides. However, substantial differences in predictors of death sentencing were found across offender-victim dyads; most notably, domestic homicide cases demonstrated the most legalistic model of jury decisions to impose death sentences.

  13. Revisiting the Decision of Death in Hurst v. Florida.

    The United States Supreme Court has considered the question of whether a judge or a jury must make the findings necessary to support imposition of the death penalty in several notable cases, including Spaziano v. Florida (1984), Hildwin v. Florida (1989), and Ring v. Arizona (2002). In 2016, the U.S. Supreme Court revisited the subject in Hurst v. Florida Florida Statute § 921.141 allows the judge, after weighing aggravating and mitigating circumstances, to enter a sentence of life imprisonment or death. Before Hurst, Florida's bifurcated sentencing proceedings included an advisory sentence from jurors and a separate judicial hearing without juror involvement. In Hurst, the Court revisited the question of whether Florida's capital sentencing scheme violates the Sixth Amendment, which requires a jury, not a judge, to find each fact necessary to impose a sentence of death in light of Ring In an eight-to-one decision, the Court reversed the judgment of the Florida Supreme Court, holding that the Sixth Amendment requires a jury to find the aggravating factors necessary for imposing the death penalty. The role of Florida juries in capital sentencing proceedings was thereby elevated from advisory to determinative. We examine the Court's decision and offer commentary regarding this shift from judge to jury in the final imposition of the death penalty and the overall effect of this landmark case.

    彩色纹理图像分解的处理模型和方法是近年来纹理图像处理研究的热点.为实现彩色纹理图像的分解,在介绍TV(total variation)模型及其Split Bregman方法的基础上,通过辅助变量和Bregman迭代参数,将Split Bregman方法引入到VO(Vese-Osher)模型中,提高了计算速度.通过数值实验比较了VO模型与TV模型在彩色纹理图像分解中的效果,验证了基于Split Bregman方法的VO模型的有效性和效率.%The models and methods of color texture image decomposition are the research focus of texture image processing in recent years. In order to realize color texture image decomposition, based on the introduction of TV (total variation) model and its Split Bregman method, this paper applies Split Bregman method to VO ( Vese-Osher) model through introducing auxiliary variables and Bregman iterative parameters, which increases the calculation speed. Some numerical examples of color texture image decomposition are used to compare the effects of VO model and TV model, which verifies the validity and efficiency of VO model based on Split Bregman method.

    This article argues that interior/architectural design education favours a dominance of final presentation over the design process in the studio environment, particularly in the evaluation of a project. It suggests that the appeal of design juries for pleasant drawings, which may shift the emphasis from the project itself to its representation,…

  20. Geophysical and Hydrological Characterization of Alluvial Fans in the Valle El Sauz Encinillas, Chihuahua, México.

    The Valle El Sauz Encinillas (VESE) is located 92 km north of Chihuahua City, México. Despite being the principal aquifer feeding Chihuahua City, and being flanked by two well studied geological features (Bloque Calera-Del Nido to the West, and the Sierra Peña Blanca to the East), a lack of available hydrogeological data prevails in the valley. The goals of this study are two: 1) geomorphometrical analysis of the sub-basins and alluvial fans, and 2) determination of the alluvial fan geoelectrical units via electrical-resistivity soundings. The Basin and Range system forms a closed sub-basin with a lacustrine basin system in extinction process. The aquifer is located in alluvial Quaternary sediments, with varying granulometry, reaching a thickness of 600 meters at the center of the valley. The biggest alluvial fan in the VESE is located at the Cañón de Santa Clara, and intersects the playa-lake deposits of the Laguna de Encinillas. This fan has a surface of 73.2 km2 and an average slope of 0.437°. The geomorphometrical analysis included the sub-basins, currents, and the fans in the area. These analyses allow a comparison between alluvial fans in the VESE and those in Death Valley, California, USA. The alluvial fans in both areas show a similar behavior in all plots. Twenty electrical resistivity soundings (Schlumberger array, AB/2 distance of 400 m) were performed in the alluvial fan. The basement and four other geoelectrical units were identified in the fan. The geophysical data, granulometric determinations, plus geochemical information of twelve wells in the area were analyzed. These data show how the decrease in granulometry, both frontally and laterally in the fan, results in a rise of the hydraulic conductivity and transmisivity values (water wells in Los Sauces and El Faro). However, both the permeability and the water quality in its distal portion, are affected by the playa lake deposits, the raising ratio of clay-size sediments (and evaporites) in the
