  • In defence of the 'school' in MLES

    Locke, Kirsten (2016-04-20)

    Scholarly text
    The University of Auckland Library

    The notion of school as a place of learning that is time-bound and situated in a geographically defined space is challenged by virtual learning spaces that can be accessed anywhere, at any time, on a device that can be carried anywhere. If schools are to prepare our young people for the realities of the hyper-digital context of 21st Century society, the logic goes then that they must be fit for purpose in a way that enables and empowers students to enter into and engage in this digital/societal context.

  • Artefacts of Encounter: a collaborative project at Cambridge University Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology

    Hogsden, C; Lythberg, Billie (2013)

    Scholarly text
    The University of Auckland Library

    Artefacts of Encounter was a 3-year project (April 2010 – March 2013) that located and examined artefacts collected on more than 40 voyages that entered Polynesia between 1765-1840, and used these artefacts as primary evidence of the nature and legacy of encounters between European explorers and Pacific islanders. A key project aim was to develop a way to collaborate with institutions holding artefacts, and the communities from whom these originated, via a digital platform. Our collaboration with Maori arts group Toi Hauiti was intended to initiate a reciprocal platform for co-creation around objects, providing access and authorship at a local level whilst simultaneously sharing information amongst project partners.

  • Review – Final Rule for FSMA Intentional Adulteration (Food Defense) Regarding Food Fraud and EMA

    Spink, JW; Moyer, D; Huff, A; Evans, Bradley (2016-06-22)

    Scholarly text
    The University of Auckland Library

    The Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) Intentional Adulteration Rule (FSMA-IA) draft was published in December 2013, public meetings started in February 2014 and the final rule was published May 27, 2016. The effective date is in 60 days but “[FDA] are providing for a longer timeline for facilities to come into compliance” in at least three years, or May 2019. Economically Motivated Adulteration (EMA) – and Food Fraud (FF) – is in the FSMA law due to the text “…intentional adulteration, including acts of terrorism.” FDA announced their scope narrowed to “wide scale [human] public health harms” and removed from this rule the concepts of EMA, disgruntled employees, tampering, etc. The FSMA compliance requirements for FF & EMA are in the Preventive Controls Rule (FSMA-PC). FSMA-IA also continually confirms many times that the Food, Drug & Cosmetics Act (FDCA) is still in effect, which includes all types of Food Fraud, even without a health hazard (“Adulterated Foods” and “Misbranded Foods”). CONCLUSION Even though Food Fraud (FF) and Economically Motivated Adulteration (EMA) are not a compliance requirement for FSMA-IA, this final rule provides important insight into FSMA and assessments: Addressing all types of Food Fraud is a requirement – and subject to a recall – under the Food, Drug & Cosmetics Act (FDCA). FDA specifically reiterated the FDCA compliance requirement in sections on “Adulterated Foods” and “Misbranded Foods.” FSMA-IA stated that stolen goods (various types of theft) that lead to a public health hazard are clearly defined and expected to be covered under FSMA-PC. There were no more clarifications of key terms such as reasonably foreseeable hazard, significant vulnerability, rare occurrence, credible threat, or the threshold of acceptable or unacceptable. The compliance requirement for Food Fraud is addressed in FSMA-PC, not in this FSMA-IA. Other FSMA final rules provide some insight on FDA’s thinking regarding assessments, thresholds of acceptable /unacceptable, and the compliance priorities (see appendix of full report regarding the May 26, 2016 FDA public call). Reviewing FSMA compliance is exhausting. There are seven long Final Rules that impact all aspects of a food company. There are minute details that can lead to a recall or regulatory penalties. We have focused on the Food Fraud aspects – and tried to provide as brief and concise insight as possible – so hopefully this one part of FSMA you can quickly address. We have been continually adjusting our research focus to provide academic theory, in the form of scholarly publications, to support your countermeasures and control systems. There are many resources that are available for assisting your FSMA compliance. Find trusted resources and rely on them.

  • Inferring Species Trees Directly from Biallelic Genetic Markers: Bypassing Gene Trees in a Full Coalescent Analysis

    Bryant, D; Bouckaert, Remco; Felsenstein, J; Rosenberg, N; RoyChoudhury, A (2011-09-16)

    Scholarly text
    The University of Auckland Library

    The multi-species coalescent provides an elegant theoretical framework for estimating species trees and species demographics from genetic markers. Practical applications of the multi-species coalescent model are, however, limited by the need to integrate or sample over all gene trees possible for each genetic marker. Here we describe a polynomial-time algorithm that computes the likelihood of a species tree directly from the markers under a finite-sites model of mutation, effectively integrating over all possible gene trees. The method applies to independent (unlinked) biallelic markers such as well-spaced single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), and we have implemented it in SNAPP, a Markov chain Monte-Carlo sampler for inferring species trees, divergence dates, and population sizes. We report results from simulation experiments and from an analysis of 1997 amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) loci in 69 individuals sampled from six species of {\em Ourisia} (New Zealand native foxglove).

  • Knowing Receipt in the Torrens Context.

    Toy, Alan (2006)

    Scholarly text
    The University of Auckland Library

    There has long been a tension between indefeasibility and liability in personam. Because liability in personam provides a means for the knowledge of a registered proprietor to be relevant to their liability even in the absence of statutory fraud, this diminishes the principle of indefeasibility. This situation is exacerbated by recent decisions that seek to align recipient liability with the principle of unjust enrichment.

  • CellML Metadata Framework 2.0

    Cooling, Michael (2011)

    Scholarly text
    The University of Auckland Library

    The CellML Metadata 2.0 Framework describes how annotations should be connected to elements within CellML 1.1 model documents. The framework is designed to be modular. It comprises a Core specification (this document), accompanied by one or more satellite specifications. The satellite specifications are each designed to cater for annotation of models for a specific domain or purpose. Examples include the Citation Specification and the Licensing Specification, which cater for adding metadata about citable works, and licenses pertaining to the model, respectively. The modular specification framework allows great flexibility through the addition of satellite specifications for dealing with new domains of interest, and incremental development of annotation pertaining to specific domains.

  • Models for estimating the performance of electricity markets with hydroelectric reservoir storage

    Philpott, A; Guan, Ziming (2013)

    Scholarly text
    The University of Auckland Library

    We describe some new results of an empirical study of the New Zealand wholesale electricity market that attempts to quantify efficiency losses by comparing market outcomes with a counterfactual central plan that accounts for hydroelectric reservoir shortages. The study extends previous work by studying differences in welfare transfers between generators, consumers and transmission owners, as well as studying the effects of risk aversion on an optimal central plan.
