Abstract: This paper reports on the comparative predictive validity of risk assessment instruments over an 11-year period. The original data (Kroner & Mills, 2001; Mills & Kroner, 2006) was the first to compare the HCR-20, PCL-R, VRAG, LSI-R, SIR and LCSF using a prospective methodology. The baserate for violence was 44.8%. The results show that all of the instruments were significantly related to violence though in absolute terms the PCL-R was consistently lowest in terms of association ( r ) and accuracy (AUC). Post hoc analysis showed that the predictive variance in the PCL-R lies within Facet 4.

"Towards understanding poor PCL-R reliability “in the field”: Lessons from a disappointing PCL-R research training" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Psychology - Law Society, Westin Bayshore Hotel, Vancouver, BC, Canada, <Not Available>. 2019-05-27 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p399019_index.html>

Abstract: Studies report excellent rater agreement when trained research assistants administer the PCL-R during formal research. But recent naturalistic studies suggest poorer agreement—and suggest evaluator characteristics may influence PCL-R scores—when clinicians administer the PCL-R in routine practice. To further explore evaluator differences, we conducted a formal PCL-R training with 25 participants, then examined their reliability in scoring two PCL-R interviews. Results revealed poorer reliability than expected (ICC A,1=.51 for PCL-R Total), and a meaningful proportion of variance in PCL-R scores attributable to raters. Rater differences played a greater role when scoring the interpersonal/emotional components of psychopathy.

Abstract: Dans l’épopée antique, selon une topique fixée chez Homère, le songe prophétique se confond souvent avec la visite d’un personnage onirique, souvent une divinité ou un mort, qui vient apporter un message au dormeur. L’iconographie humaniste s’approprie cette topique de façons variées : le rêveur est souvent représenté éveillé en train de converser avec le porteur du message et seule la culture du spectateur lui permet d’identifier qu’il s’agit d’un rêve. Parfois, cependant, sont représentés simultanément le rêveur endormi et le contenu du rêve, par exemple lorsque Nicolὸ dell’Abate illustre l’apparition du dieu Tibérinus à Enée. A partir de songes prophétiques empruntés à la tradition épique – songe de Pâris, songe d’Hécube et songes d’Enée - il s’agira d’interroger la figuration littéraire et picturale de l’illusion onirique.

Abstract: Firms in science-intensive industries are more likely to initiate novel R&D projects and projects that are initiated are less likely to fail when the funding outlook for public research is better. The context of our study is the R&D landscape in the global cell therapy industry across four periods that were distinctive in terms of the outlook for relevant public research. Analysing our dataset on 583 commercial product development projects in the cell therapy field from 1986 until 2011, we find lower R&D project initiation rates and higher failure rates for US firms in the aftermath of the announcement in 2001 of a federal funding moratorium on specific types human embryotic stem cell research. R&D failure rates of cell therapy projects initiated by US firms returned to levels similar to those of non-US firms as the US public funding outlook for stem cell research improved at both state- and federal- levels during subsequent periods.

Abstract: The fact that one of the most vociferous and publicly active pressure groups in contemporary Sri Lanka has styled itself Rāvana Balaya (or “Rāvana Power”) attests to the lingering importance of the figure of Rāvana among some significant Sinhala constructions of identity. This paper is in many ways an attempt to make sense of how the figure of Rāvana, the demonic villain of the famed Rāmāyana epic, emerged as an inspirational source of Sinhala pride and as a font of cultural capital, for groups like the contemporary Rāvana Balaya as well as others throughout Sri Lankan history. I provide a close reading of a 15th-16th century text, the Rāvanā Rājavaliya or Sri Lankadvipayaye Kadaim, examining one of the earliest examples of the Sinhala textual tradition to employ a narrative of Rāvanā. In my paper, I explain how the Rāvanā Rājavaliya embeds the story of Rāvana within a discourse of virtuous topography. Here, I look beyond the surface appearance of what is, in fact, a rather brief narrative on Rāvana and argue that the place of the Rāvana story in this text has everything to do with the moral landscape it seeks to generate. This landscape, I argue, tells a tale of the moral decline of the Dambadeniya kingdom against the backdrop of the rise to power of the, as this text would have it, virtuous kingdoms of Kotte and Gampola. This paper helps specialists of Sri Lankan history and religion to better understand the historical uses of Rāvana within Sinhala literary culture, and it also provides a general argument regarding the use of moral landscapes and virtuous topographies as didactic tools within literary and religious cultures more broadly.
