  • Airway receptors in birds

    Kubke, Maria; Wild, John; Suthers, RA (2009)

    Book item
    The University of Auckland Library

    The respiratory system of birds consists of the non-expandable lungs and a series of air sacs providing a unidirectional system of air flow (Maina, 2002). The avian lung is formed by a series of tubular structures, the parabronchi, through which air flows unidirectionally, and a series of air capillaries where gas exchange with the blood takes place (Dunker, 1971; Duncker, 1972; Duncker, 1974; Scheid, 1979). ...

  • Mobility and careers

    Inkson, James (2010)

    Book item
    The University of Auckland Library

    A career has been defined as “the evolving sequence of a person’s work experiences over time”. In this chapter we argue that the time-based nature of careers, and their longevity, make mobility inevitable, and a key characteristic of careers. Careers are most commonly metaphorized as “journeys”, which have both physical and psychological elements. Careers make transitions between jobs, organizations, occupations, industries and locations, thus defining multiple dimensions through which careers move. This mobility is typically the result of the interplay, and often conflict, between institutional and individual forces. Attention has been focused in recent times on “boundary-less careers” unfolding across multiple settings due to more open, flexible institutional structures and increased personal agency, particularly among professional workers with in-demand skills. One way of understanding career mobility is through the concept of “career capital”, the motivation, expertise and network connections that individuals accumulate through their career engagements, which make the career a repository of knowledge that can be used to cross-pollinate the organizations that receive these mobile careerists. The issue of geographical career mobility is neglected in career studies, and we note some of the dynamics involved in temporary self-expatriation, permanent new settlement, and career “globe-trotting”, illustrating with case examples, and noting particularly the benefits and drawbacks of mobile careers to those involved. Focusing on the issue of “talent flow”, in which individual mobile careers coalesce into international currents of expertise and economic potential, we consider evidence from the country of New Zealand as a case in point. Finally, we note likely future economic and social stimuli for, and constraints on, career mobility, and argue for more and better research.

  • Impact of Differing Grammatical Structures in Mathematics Teaching and Learning

    Edmonds-Wathen, C; Trinick, T; Durand-Guerrier, V (2016)

    Book item
    The University of Auckland Library

    This chapter investigates issues regarding the different grammatical structures of languages used in mathematics learning, both languages of instruction and other languages that are used in classrooms. Mathematics is understood to operate in and through language, and different languages offer different resources with which to do this. This chapter considers the nature of the mathematics that is made possible by the linguistic expressions of different languages. We examine features of the mathematics register and the development of the mathematics register for a few selected languages. We discuss linguistic differences that occur in the key mathematical areas of logic, reasoning, space and number, in a general manner, and with specific examples from languages from different parts of the world. We then offer suggestions for how teachers and researchers in multilingual contexts can comprehend and utilise grammatical differences among the languages in their context.

  • The IUPS Physiome Project: progress and plans

    Hunter, PJ; Burrowes, KS; Fernandez, JW; Nielsen, PMF; Smith, NP; Tawhai, M (2006)

    Book item
    The University of Auckland Library

    The IUPS Physiome Project aims to facilitate the understanding of physiological function in healthy and diseased mammalian tissues by developing a multi-scale modeling framework that can link biological structure and function across all spatial scales. To achieve this requires an open-source internationally collaborative effort to design XML standards for encapsulating models, web-accessible model databases, and computational tools for authoring and visualizing models and running model simulations. A brief overview of the project is given in this chapter, with a discussion of the current progress and future plans for three particular organ systems: the heart, lungs, and musculo-skeletal system.

  • Local voice in a global world : translating for a small new zealand immigrant community

    Mincic-Obradovic, Ksenija (2008)

    Book item
    The University of Auckland Library

    The Serbian community in New Zealand is very small and relatively new, almost all having arrived in New Zealand in the 1990s, following the break-up of former Yugoslavia. As newcomers and educated professionals, Serbians mostly request translation of official documents and certificates, and this does not generate enough work for a full time professional. With only 12 million speakers, Serbian is a language of limited diffusion. There is a lack of dictionaries and tools available in New Zealand. There are also issues surrounding the separation of the Serbo-Croatian language into several languages. Different educational systems and changes in names for government agencies used over the years of political turmoil add to the usual problems with correspondences of words and terms. This all makes the work of a translator challenging. Translators cannot rely on translation as a main source of income. Are there other benefits which could be an incentive for spending free time on translating? Is there enough work to gain the necessary experience and expertise in a particular area? In this context, is globalisation another challenge, or an opportunity? The paper will discuss the challenges the translator meets and the opportunities offered by the Internet.
