  • Prioritising International Sex Crimes before the Special Court for Sierra Leone: Another Instrument of Political Manipulation?

    Mahony, Christopher (2012)

    Book item
    The University of Auckland Library

    Introduction Over the past two decades the prosecution of international crimes1 has be-come increasingly common, with international organisations and individ-ual States taking political positions over their legitimacy and conduct. Ef-forts to ensure impartiality and independence in the selection of cases prosecuted however, have largely failed. Independent case selection has been compromised because States have sought to impede prosecution where they view doing so as antithetical to their interests. ...

  • Does employee downsizing really work?

    Datta, DK; Basuil Tobias, Dynah (2014)

    Book item
    The University of Auckland Library

    Over the past couple of decades, employee downsizing has become a fact of organizational life, not just in the U.S. but, increasingly so, in other countries, with unprecedented levels of downsizing occurring in several countries during the last recession. Seen as being inevitable in an increasingly competitive global marketplace, the high levels of downsizing activity attest to the deep-seated belief among managers that downsizing enhances organizational efficiency and leads to improved financial performance. Critics, on the other hand, argue that benefits are illusory and point out that attendant costs, both visible and invisible, can make downsizing a relatively ineffective tool for creating firm value. After a brief discussion of the factors that motivate and propel firms to engage in downsizing, we, in this article, examine the findings of extant research to assess whether downsizing does indeed improve organization performance. What we find based on our examination of 55 studies is that the findings are equivocal with very little agreement among researchers on the efficacy of employee downsizing to create organizational value. We explore possible reasons for the same and conclude by providing directions for future research that, we believe, will provide the insights that scholars and managers need to better understand the complex relationship between employee downsizing and firm value.

  • Foundations for the Logic of Questions and Commands

    Girle, Roderic; McKeown-Green, J (2014)

    Book item
    The University of Auckland Library

    Recent interest in logics for questions and commands has been prompted partly by a recognition that reasoned argument often involves moves that are not truth-evaluable, and partly by the use of questions and commands in most procedural programming. The authors argue that certain methodological issues must be addressed before we can agree on the purpose and nature of logics for questions and commands. They deny that formulas in such logics should correspond to sentences in ordinary language. They consider how formulas should be interpreted, focusing especially on questions. The authors argue that logics designed to capture the conditions for correct reasoning involving questions require a semantics that treats question-answer pairs as values. This emphasis brings to the fore issues about questions in premise-conclusion arguments. In both premise-conclusion and dialogical argumentation, the authors argue that logic should aim to capture moves in reasoning, not facts about sentences.

  • Othering “Lebs”: Racialised demonisation of Lebanese immigrants in Australia

    Poynting, Noel (2014)

    Book item
    The University of Auckland Library

    This paper demonstrates how the Lebanese immigrant population in Australia (and especially its largest city, Sydney) has quite a distinct experience from elsewhere in the Lebanese diaspora in the way they have been perceived and represented. Over the past two decades, Lebanese immigrants in Sydney have been ideologically associated with inherent criminality: they have been racialised and criminalised at the same time. A whole younger generation, of second- and third-generation Lebanese immigrants, has grown up having to live with, and to respond to, being defined in that way. This chapter traces that process of racialisation and criminalisation by focusing on some key flashpoints over this period, and also gives some indication of how Lebanese Australians in Sydney have experienced this ‘othering’.

  • Airway Management Skills and Equipment for Aquatic First Responders

    Hood, N; Webber, Jonathon (2014-10-26)

    Book item
    The University of Auckland Library

    The mainstay of treatment in drowning patients is removal from the aquatic environment and reinstitution of breathing with air or oxygen. Rescue and resuscitation by aquatic first responders who can institute immediate basic and intermediate life support offers the best chance of survival.

  • First Aid Courses for the Aquatic Environment

    Szpilman, D; Morizot-Leite, L; de Vries, W; Beerman, S; Martinho, FNR; Smoris, L; Løfgren, B; Webber, Jonathon (2014-10-26)

    First aid in the aquatic environment requires specific skills and knowledge that are not taught in regular first aid education. Some topics are unique to aquatics. Target groups for such courses include persons living, playing, or working near or around the water. First aid courses tailored for the aquatic environment contribute to a competent rescue and resuscitation of a drowning victim and to the safety of the lay rescuer [1] or trained rescuer [2]. By including information on water safety awareness, these courses can also contribute to prevention and reduce the drowning burden. The relevance of an aquatic course was first extensively debated at an expert meeting Do we need a special first aid course for drowning victims during the World Congress on Drowning in the Netherlands 2002. Since 2002, first aid courses for the aquatic environment have been successfully organized around the world. This chapter reviews the importance and need of these courses and what has been learned

  • Phage Integrases for Mediating Genomic Integration and DNA Recombination

    Maucksch, Christof (2008)

    Book item
    The University of Auckland Library

    φC31 integrase is a site specific recombinase derived from the Streptomyces phage. In the phage lifecycle, the enzyme mediates lysogeny by mediating recombination between specific sequences termed attB (present in the bacterial DNA) and attP (present in the phage genome). Screening the enzyme activity in mammalian cells provided positive results and also showed that the enzyme retained its property of site specific recombination into mammalian genomes. Mammalian genomes have been shown to contain sequences that are similar to the wild type attP sequence of the Streptomyces phage genome and experiments with the integrase in mammalian cells showed that it could mediate recombination and subsequent integration of any DNA bearing an attB site into these pseudoattP sites. ...
