  • One Consumer's Opinion: Twenty-Year Retrospective

    Agee, Thomas (2009)

    Twenty years ago almost to the day, I submitted my first One Consumer's Opinion to this magazine. The idea was hatched at a Market Research Society's conference in Rotorua when I happened to be sitting next to Ruby Huizen, then editor of John Minty's magazine for marketers. We thought it might be something different to have a column written from the customer's perspective.

  • Lost in Translation

    There are words that are used when cultures meet—collision, encounter—that draw
 the reader, the listener, towards their own conclusions—a violent act, a skirting of the issues, a lack of connectivity. Then there are lived moments that take issue with these words. ... ...

  • Beginning Charles Darwin's Researches and Catastrophic Wave Phenomena

    Galiyev, Shamil; Mace, B (2012)

    During many years the analysis of some geophysical results of Charles Darwin was being carried out in Department. Darwin has connected almost 200 years ago results of catastrophic earthquakes with vertical movement of a surface of the Earth. Usually this movement less horizontal movement and its influence on destruction of cities is not considered. Earthquake hazard assessment studies were focused usually on the horizontal ground motion. Effects of the strong vertical motion were not, practically, discussed. The margins of safety against gravity-induced static vertical forces in constructed buildings usually provide adequate resistance to dynamic forces induced by the vertical acceleration during an earthquake. However, the earthquake in Christchurch is an example of the vertical seismic shock . The earthquake magnitude was rather small - nearby 6.3. However, the result was catastrophic. The same took place in 1835. It allowed to Darwin to formulate a few great ideas. Charles Darwin has explained qualitatively results of an interaction of huge seismic waves with volcanoes and the nature of volcanism and seismicity of our planet. These important data of Charles Darwin became very actual recently. It is possible to tell also the same about tsunami and extreme ocean waves described by Charles Darwin. Therefore this data were analyzed using modern mechanics, mathematics and physics in Department. In particular, the theory of catastrophic waves was developed based on Darwin's data. The theory tried to explain occurrence, evolution and distribution the catastrophic waves in various natural systems, since atoms, oceans, surfaces of the Earth and up to the very early Universe. Some results of the research were published in prestigious magazines. Later they were presented in two books devoted to Charles Darwin's anniversary (2009). Last from them was published in Russian (2011). We give here key ideas of this research which is a part of interdisciplinary researches of Department. Some ideas are discussed. Not less important purpose is very short historical review of some researches of Darwin. In particular, we underline Darwin' priority in the formulation of the bases of Dynamics Earth.

  • Glucose in Well Babies Study - GLOW Study Protocol

    Neonatal hypoglycaemia is important because it is common and linked with brain injury and poor neurological outcome. In recent years, there has been considerable interest in the detection and management of neonatal hypoglycaemia. Babies who are identified as being at risk are screened using heel-prick blood tests for the first days after birth. If hypoglycaemia is diagnosed, then treatment is usually provided. Glucose is the primary cerebral fuel and the aim of treatment is to increase the blood glucose concentration to ensure adequate cerebral energy supply. The definition of neonatal hypoglycaemia has caused considerable controversy. The current widely accepted definition of < 2.6mM has been determined using limited, but the only available data. However, the normal glucose profile of healthy appropriately grown term newborns has never been reliably described, and it is possible that many babies are being unnecessarily treated. Babies have been shown to use alternative cerebral fuels, primarily lactate and ketones, but the profiles of blood lactate and ketone concentrations in healthy newborns within the first week are also unclear. We propose a prospective observational cohort study in healthy appropriately grown term newborns to describe the normal glucose, lactate and ketone concentration profiles over the first five postnatal days. Babies enrolled in the study will be cared for as normal newborns, largely by the parents as they progress from hospital or birthing centre to home. Blood samples for analysis of glucose, lactate and ketones will be taken initially from the umbilical artery. Capillary blood tests will then be taken by heel pricks, initially matching the frequency of blood tests taken according current screening protocols for babies born at risk of neonatal hypoglycaemia, and continue for the first five postnatal days. In addition, all babies will have continuous interstitial glucose monitoring. The results of the blood and interstitial glucose measurements will not be available to clinicians caring for the baby. If “neonatal hypoglycaemia” as currently defined is shown to be common in healthy term newborns, it is possible that current clinical management of babies at risk will significantly change.

  • Robust and Resilient Strategies for Managing Supply Disruptions in an Agribusiness Supply Chain

    Behzadi, S; O'Sullivan, Michael; Olsen, Tava; Zhang, A (2017)

    Agribusiness supply chains involve more sources of uncertainty than typical manufacturing supply chains due to attributes such as long supply lead-times, seasonality, and perishability. Therefore, it is critical but challenging to mitigate risks in agribusiness supply chains. However, the extant literature includes limited quantitative research on robust and resilient strategies for agribusiness supply chain risk management, particularly when perishability is explicitly modeled. In this paper, we investigate the effectiveness of a mixed set of robust and resilient strategies for managing rare high-impact harvest time and yield disruptions. We develop a two-stage stochastic programming model, which integrates an exponential perishability function, to conduct our analysis. The model maximizes the expected profit by selecting optimal risk management strategies and making tactical supply chain planning decisions. The model is applied to a numerical case study of a real-world kiwifruit supply chain. The results suggest that a mixed combination of robust and resilient strategies are most effective for mitigating supply-side disruption risks. Furthermore, as perishability increases, risk management strategies provide a greater relative improvement in the expected profit.
