dope sheet

1. A racing publication the provides detailed information of racehorses and their jockeys to prospective gamblers. Also known as a "scratch sheet." I quit gambling five years ago, but I still like to look over the dope sheets at the race tracks just to feel a bit of that rush again.
2. A document summarizing important details and background information regarding a specific person, activity, situation, or any other subject. The sergeant handed out the suspect's dope sheet at the meeting this morning, so each officer had a good idea who they were looking for. The journalist always created a dope sheet for herself about any story she was planning to cover.
3. A set of running instructions provided by an animator to photographers and editors as to how a particular animation should be filmed. Also known as an "exposure sheet." The animator's dope sheet was so convoluted and complex that we really had no idea what way he wanted the animation to appear on screen.

Unfortunately, neither of the two strategies is likely to solve the problem (completely): since the available test technologies are far from being perfect (sometimes clean athletes are tested positive and sometimes doped athletes will go undetected), variations in the parameters mentioned above--doping costs, detection probability, prize money, number of contestants, and penalties for cheaters--will at best reduce but certainly not eradicate illegal activities in sport, once considered a domain of fairness and integrity.
In any case, more problematic is the payoff of zero for the nondoped athlete because he or she would get some prize, eventually lower than a, if the doped athlete is caught.
Yet, the disadvantage of the doped athlete's competitors may violate section 263.
If the doped "winner" of the event gets disqualified, the audience might have the right to claim back the entry fees they have already paid (107).
If the athlete was doped when he or she signed the contract, the athlete's doped performance abilities form the basis of the sponsorship, and the sponsors expect him or her to show these abilities (108).
Section 298 of the Criminal Code is protecting competition and may sanction a doped athlete.
Although the German legal system offers ways to sanction doping infractions, the provisions struggle to succeed in punishing involved people, not to forget that the doped athlete remains immune to any punishment.
Firstly, antagonists also wished to see the doped athlete criminalised which has not been adopted in the new law.
Once the athlete is genetically doped, the effects of such a procedure are present for the rest of the athlete's life (129).
The question of how to punish the doped athlete should not be oversized since it is only one module of the whole fight against doping in sports.
Still, these conductivities are several orders of magnitude below those observed for PANI doped with CSA [4].
However, the conductivities remain lower by about 3 orders than those reported for the PANI-CSA system as processed from m-cresol and by about 1 order for PANI doped in the surface/core arrangement [4, 12, 13].
PANI doped in the standard surface/core arrangement is also not able to be melt processed [13, 14].
Previous findings suggest that different dopants and solvents may result in different conformations of doped PANI chains [15].
The addition of further side chains via doping with DBSA resulted in stable doped solutions.
