Draco

Rubaiat Habib Kazi, Fanny Chevalier, Tovi Grossman, Shengdong Zhao, George Fitzmaurice
2014 Proceedings of the extended abstracts of the 32nd annual ACM conference on Human factors in computing systems - CHI EA '14  
Draco [4] is a sketch-based interface that allows artists and casual users alike to add a rich set of animation effects to their drawings, seemingly bringing illustrations to life.  ...  We propose a framework built around kinetic textures, which provide continuous animation effects while preserving the unique timeless nature of still illustrations.  ...  Figure 2 : 2 The Figure 1 : 1 A dynamic illustration with Draco, capturing the living qualities of a moment with continuous dynamic phenomena, yet exhibiting the unique timeless nature of a still picture  ...

2014 Proceedings of the 32nd annual ACM conference on Human factors in computing systems - CHI '14  
A dynamic illustration authored with Draco, capturing the living qualities of a moment with continuous dynamic phenomena, yet exhibiting the unique timeless nature of a still picture.  ...  ABSTRACT We present Draco, a sketch-based interface that allows artists and casual users alike to add a rich set of animation effects to their drawings, seemingly bringing illustrations to life.  ...  Draco pushes the boundary of an emerging form of visual media that lies between static illustration and videos.  ...

Photomorphogenesis in Dracaena draco

Józef Krawczyszyn, Teresa Krawczyszyn
2015 Trees  
Abstract Dracaena draco, a tree-like monocot, lives in cycles of vegetative growth and flowering. The cycles, as well as the tree growth form, are under genetic control.  ...  D. draco tree exhibited strong phototropic response and its crown was organized by the direction of growing tips.  ...  Indeed the oldest living Dragon tree, El Drago of Icod, is told to be about 400 years old (Mägdefrau 1975) . Generally then, flowering of D. draco resembles other autonomous flowerers.  ...

Draco: A Failure of the Tidal Model

Ralf S. Klessen, Eva K. Grebel, Daniel Harbeck
2003 Astrophysical Journal  
We conclude that Draco cannot be the remnant of a tidally disrupted satellite, but is probably strongly dark-matter dominated. (ABSTRACT ABBREVIATED)  ...  The resulting models are unable to reproduce the narrow observed horizontal branch width of Draco, which stays roughly constant regardless of the field of view.  ...  Altogether, we conclude that Draco cannot be the remnant a tidally disrupted satellite galaxy.  ...

Constraining Global Properties of the Draco Dwarf Spheroidal Galaxy

Sergey Mashchenko, Alison Sills, H. M. Couchman
2006 Astrophysical Journal  
We rule out Draco being a "tidal dwarf" - a tidally disrupted dwarf galaxy. Almost radial Draco orbits (with the pericentric distance <15 kpc) are also ruled out by our analysis.  ...  We carry out high-resolution simulations of the tidal evolution of our two-component Draco models in the potential of the Milky Way.  ...  To illustrate this effect, in Figure 2b we show anisotropy profiles for Draco with η 0 = 0.9, η 1 = −0.7, and λ = 0.5, 1, 3, 5.  ...

Dark matter and the CACTUS gamma-ray excess from Draco

Stefano Profumo, Marc Kamionkowski
2006 Journal of Cosmology and Astroparticle Physics  
Draco features a very low gas content and a large mass-to-light ratio, suggesting as a possible explanation annihilation of weakly interacting massive particles (WIMPs) in the Draco dark-matter halo.  ...  The CACTUS atmospheric Cherenkov telescope collaboration recently reported a gamma-ray excess from the Draco dwarf spheroidal galaxy.  ...  In this section, we illustrate how future such measurements may shed light on the halo profile for Draco. To do so, we proceed as if the resolution of CACTUS were in fact already 0.1 • .  ...

Massive aerial roots affect growth and form of Dracaena draco

Józef Krawczyszyn, Teresa Krawczyszyn
2014 Trees  
Key message Large aerial roots grow out from the branches of injured Dracaena draco trees. They integrate with the trunk or cause the branches to break off the tree and deform it.  ...  This may explain (1) why the trunk of a mature D. draco tree looks fibrous, as if made of many individual strands, and (2) how some trees reach enormous radial dimensions.  ...  Case 3: Drago Milenario of Icod De Los Vinos, Tenerife The legendary tree of Icod is the oldest and largest living D. draco tree (Fig. 5a ). It has been first mentioned in 1503 (Ommen 2009 ).  ...

The case for a cold dark matter cusp in Draco

J I Read, M G Walker, P Steger
2018 Monthly notices of the Royal Astronomical Society  
We then apply GravSphere to the real Draco data. We find that Draco has an inner dark matter density of ρ_ DM(150 pc) = 2.4_-0.6^+0.5× 10^8 M_ kpc^-3, consistent with a ΛCDM cusp.  ...  We first test GravSphere on a suite of tidally stripped mock 'Draco'-like dwarfs.  ...  The mocks were placed on the same orbit around the live Milky Way model from Read et al. (2008) . See §4 for further details.  ...

Jimmy A. McGuire, Robert Dudley
2005 American Naturalist  
Here we tested this hypothesis by conducting gliding performance trials for 11 Draco species spanning virtually the entire size range of the genus.  ...  Online enhancement: video. abstract: Despite exhibiting considerable interspecific variation in body mass, flying lizards of the genus Draco are isometric in their area-mass scaling relationships and exhibit  ...  This result is illustrative in a number of ways.  ...

MEASURING DARK MATTER PROFILES NON-PARAMETRICALLY IN DWARF SPHEROIDALS: AN APPLICATION TO DRACO

John R. Jardel, Karl Gebhardt, Maximilian H. Fabricius, Niv Drory, Michael J. Williams
2013 Astrophysical Journal  
Our models confirm that, despite its low baryon content relative to other dSphs, Draco lives in a massive halo.  ...  Our non-parametric Schwarzschild models find strong evidence that the dark matter profile in Draco is cuspy for 20 < r < 700 pc.  ...  Ours is not the first study to suggest that Draco lives in a halo with such a large mass.  ...

THE POISON - BEARING FISHES, TRACHINIS DRACO AND SCORPÆNA SCROPHA: THE EFFECTS OF THE POISON ON MAN AND ANIMALS AND ITS NATURE

James Dunbar-Brunton
1896 The Lancet  
The trachunis draco is a handsome fish, striated with blue and brown and not unlike a trout in general appearance.  ...  The case seems to me instructive and worthy of being recorded, not only on account of the fact that full records of such cases are somewhat rare, but, also, as illustrating that, notwithstanding the difficulties  ...  The trachunis draco is a handsome fish, striated with blue and brown and not unlike a trout in general appearance.  ...
