  • Beginning Charles Darwin's Researches and Catastrophic Wave Phenomena

    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.

  • Case Study: Disrupting Wall Street - High Frequency Trading

    Neufeld, D; Evans, Bradley (2014-10-29)

    Unclassified
    The University of Auckland Library

    Michael Lewis's book Flash Boys, published in 2014, revealed to the public numerous controversial Wall Street trading practices made possible by advances in technology as well as regulatory changes that were (ironically) intended to improve pricing fairness in the financial markets. Lewis's story focused on the man who blew the whistle: Brad Katsuyama, a Canadian banker who ran the New York trading desk for the Royal Bank of Canada. In 2010, he had noticed some odd system responses to his trading requests and began to ask questions. The answers he discovered, and publicized, about high frequency trading set off a firestorm regarding the moral integrity of the financial markets. Very few people understood what was happening, and fewer still comprehended the central role played by information technology. Questions remain: How does information technology influence our concept of wealth? Why do "flash crashes" occur? Are the markets rigged? Will the next disruption to the financial markets involve technology?

  • The School Reunion and On Holiday

    The University of Auckland Library

    My forthcoming novel The Forrests (Bloomsbury, 2012) was excerpted in the above publications. In this novel I experiment with structure and point of view, presenting the story of one woman's family life through intensely detailed selected memories. Narrative threads are present through all the episodes, but each must be able to stand alone as short fiction pieces, as these excerpts did, even as this writing consciously resists a 'sense of an ending'.

  • Review of the book Kia tangi te titi: Permission to speak - successful schooling for Maori students in the 21st century, Paul Whitinui (ed.)

    Lee, Jennifer (2012)

    While the centrality of culture in Maori education is mostly used in this book in reference to relationships between non-M??ori teachers and Maori students (and their wh??nau), I want to use cultural connectedness to describe the way culture is also related to and implicated in theory, research, policy and practice in some of the chapters. Hana O'Regan' s personal narrative intersects with international research, historical accounts of New Zealand schooling and decolonising critiques providing a great overview for understanding how the threat of Maori language death has occurred (and continues), and what it may mean for our survival as Maori.

  • Injury Incidence in Cross Country Skiers

    Background Prospective, cross-country ski injury incidence data is scarce. Objective To describe injury type and incidence sustained by elite cross-country skiers in north-eastern America. We hypothesized that lower extremity injury incidence would be higher than other body regions. A secondary aim was to determine any factors that correlate with new injury. Design A prospective, longitudinal study that included: demographics (ski and injury history); Movement Competency Screening (MCS); hamstring length measurement; core muscle endurance testing (trunk flexor to extensor ratio). Athletes then completed 12 consecutive, monthly electronic surveys about training, racing, and injury status. Setting Collegiate and professional ski team practices. Patients (or Participants) A convenience sample of 71 cross-country skiers (age 18–27 years, 35 men); 41 participants (18 men) completed the study. Independent variables MCS score; hamstring length; ratio of trunk flexor to extensor endurance; injury history; training activities and hours; training lost to injury. Main Outcome Measurements New injury reports. Results Mean injury incidence was 3.81 new injuries per participant, per 1,000 hours of training. Injury incidences for lower extremity (2.13), and overuse/non-traumatic (2.76) injuries were significantly greater than trunk (0.22), upper extremity (0.46), or acute/traumatic (1.05) injuries (p0.05). Past injuries were a significant predictor of new injuries, when accounting for training time, running time and MCS score (p<0.05). Conclusions This year long, prospective report of injury type and incidence in competitive cross-country skiers demonstrated that lower extremity and overuse/non-traumatic injuries had the highest incidence rates. Previously injured skiers are at greater risk of further injury.
