Chris Evans: Socially Awkward

Dan Kidner
During a talk given at Tate Britain in March 2006 on the topic of collaboration, British artist Chris Evans made an admission about his working practice that may have surprised some in the audience.  ...  Evans makes these processes the theme, and the site of his work.  ...  At this point in the describing of a project by Evans, uncertainty sets in.  ... 

Why didn't they ask Evans?

Chris S. M. Turney
2017 Polar Record  
Why Evans was not questioned more about these events on his return to England remains unknown.  ...  It is concluded that Evans actions on and off the ice can at best be described as ineffectual, at worst deliberate sabotage.  ...  for any correspondence between William Lashly and Evans.  ...

Massive stars in the Magellanic Clouds

Chris Evans
2019 Zenodo  
The stellar populations of distant star-forming galaxies are typically metal deficient compared to stars in the solar neighbourhood. The Clouds give us an excellent laboratory in which to study the effects of metallicity on the physics and evolution of the massive stars which dominate the integrated light from more distant systems. The 8-10m class telescopes have been transformative in our understanding of massive stars in the Clouds, most notably via the large surveys with VLT-FLAMES. I will

Digital traces for business intelligence

Giannis Milolidakis, Demosthenes Akoumianakis, Chris Kimble, Dr Chris Evans and Professor Raymond H
2014 Journal of Enterprise Information Management  
Purpose -Data from social media (SM) has grown exponentially and created new opportunities for businesses to supplement their business intelligence (BI). However, there are many different platforms all of which are in a constant state of evolution. The purpose of this paper is to describe a generic methodology for the gathering of data from SM and transforming it into valuable BI. Design/methodology/approach -The approach taken is termed virtual excavation and builds on the similarities between
more » ... the manipulation of technological artefacts virtual communities using various forms of SM and the excavation and analysis of physical artefacts found in archaeological settlements. Findings -The paper reports on a case study using this technique that looks at the Facebook fan pages of three mobile telecommunications service providers in Greece. The paper identifies many of the standard BI indicators as well as demonstrating that additional information relating to cross-page use can be collected by looking at how users manipulate artefact such as the "like" button in Facebook. Research limitations/implications -Although the methodology is widely applicable, the paper only reports on the analysis of one platform, Facebook, and is heavily reliant on visualization tools. Future work will examine different platforms and different tools for analysis. Practical implications -The paper discusses some of the ways in which this approach could be used and suggests some areas in which it might be applied. Originality/value -The approach of using virtual excavations to extract BI from virtual communities in online SM offers a systematic approach for dealing with a variety of information from a variety of different media that is not found in techniques based on information systems or management science.

Swivel: Improving Embeddings by Noticing What's Missing [article]

Noam Shazeer, Ryan Doherty, Colin Evans, Chris Waterson
2016 arXiv   pre-print
We present Submatrix-wise Vector Embedding Learner (Swivel), a method for generating low-dimensional feature embeddings from a feature co-occurrence matrix. Swivel performs approximate factorization of the point-wise mutual information matrix via stochastic gradient descent. It uses a piecewise loss with special handling for unobserved co-occurrences, and thus makes use of all the information in the matrix. While this requires computation proportional to the size of the entire matrix, we make
more » ... e of vectorized multiplication to process thousands of rows and columns at once to compute millions of predicted values. Furthermore, we partition the matrix into shards in order to parallelize the computation across many nodes. This approach results in more accurate embeddings than can be achieved with methods that consider only observed co-occurrences, and can scale to much larger corpora than can be handled with sampling methods.

Melatonin for pre-medication in children: a systematic review

Katie Mellor, Diana Papaioannou, Anna Thomason, Robert Bolt, Chris Evans, Matthew Wilson, Chris Deery
2022 BMC Pediatrics  
Background Melatonin's effectiveness as an anxiolytic medication has been confirmed in adults; however, its efficacy in a paediatric population is unclear. A number of small studies have assessed its use in children as a pre-operative anxiolytic, with conflicting results. Methods We undertook a systematic review of pre-operative melatonin use in children. Four databases (MEDLINE, Embase, the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials and Web of Science), and '' were
more » ... d for ongoing and completed clinical trials of relevance. Citation tracking reference lists and relevant articles were also accessed. The review was unrestricted by comparator or outcomes. Eleven studies were judged eligible for inclusion. There were high levels of heterogeneity in melatonin administration (in terms of dose and timing). Variable outcomes were reported and included: anxiety; anaesthetic success; analgesia; sedation; post-operative recovery; and safety. Outcomes were not always assessed with the same measures. Results Evidence to support melatonin's anxiolytic properties in this setting is conflicting. Melatonin was associated with reduced sedative effects, post-operative excitement and improved emergence behaviour, compared to comparator drugs. One study reported the benefit of melatonin use on sleep disturbance at two weeks post-surgery. No adverse safety events were identified to be significantly associated with melatonin, affirming its excellent safety profile. Conclusion Despite potential advantages, including improved emergence behaviour, based on current evidence we cannot confirm whether melatonin is non-inferior to current "usual care" pre-medications. Further consideration of melatonin as an anxiolytic pre-medication in paediatric surgery is needed.

The Charmonium Potential at Non-Zero Temperature [article]

Chris Allton, Wynne Evans, Pietro Giudice, Jon-Ivar Skullerud
2015 arXiv   pre-print
The potential between charm and anti-charm quarks is calculated non-perturbatively using physical, rather than static quarks at temperatures on both sides of the deconfinement transition T_ C, using a lattice simulation with 2+1 dynamical quark flavours. We used the HAL QCD time-dependent method, originally developed for inter-nucleon potentials. Our lattices are anisotropic, with temporal lattice spacing less than the spatial one which enhances the information content of our correlators at
more » ... temperature. Local-extended charmonium correlators were calculated efficiently by contracting propagators in momentum rather than coordinate space. We find no significant variation in the central potential for temperatures in the confined phase. As the temperature increases into the deconfinement phase, the potential flattens, consistent with the expected weakening interaction. We fit the potential to both the (a) Cornell and (b) Debye-screened potential forms, with the latter better reproducing the data. The zero temperature string tension obtained from (a) agrees with results obtained elsewhere, and it decreases with temperature, but at a slower rate than from the static quark approximation. The Debye mass from (b) is close to zero for small temperatures, but starts to increase rapidly around T_ C. The spin-dependent potential is found to have a repulsive core and a distinct temperature dependence above T_ C at distances ∼ 1 fm.
