  • Creative Printmaking in New Zealand, 1930-2007: An Annotated Bibliography

    Ward, Fiona (2012)

    Unclassified
    The University of Auckland Library

    This Annotated Bibliography includes 105 references that record all available published, unpublished and digital material about the history of creative printmaking in New Zealand from 1930 to 2007. As New Zealand academics and printmakers have noted, while other visual media such as painting and photography have always been included in the discourse of art history in New Zealand, for various reasons printmaking has been gradually excluded and marginalised. There is a need to foster an academic and critical interest in printmaking to provide a framework to enable further research and scholarship. This Annotated Bibliography will support future academic and critical explorations of the topic.

  • Trade dependence needs to be put into perspective

    Robb, David (2014-07-25)

    The University of Auckland Library

    In "China is dangerously struggling but New Zealand refuses to notice, warns expert" (NBR, July 9), US academic Professor David Shambaugh is quoted as stating that "New Zealand’s trade dependency on Chi New Zealand al risk of relying on the emerging power too much even while it has serious structural problems." Reflecting on this assertion is important for the government, businesses and individuals – our livelihoods depend on our ability to market products, services,and ideas beyond the confines of our borders. This article provides another perspective on the growing concentration of trade with China, the risks and what we can do about them.

  • Economyths

    Kushner, Saville; Kushner, B (2011)

    Unclassified
    The University of Auckland Library

    The case for economic crisis in the UK - the basis of the austerity programme and the part-dismantling of the Welfare State - is assertion rather than analysis. This is evidence of a hegemonic 'single political narrative' which is little subjected to critical scrutiny or public debate. The casualty is deliberative democracy and the quality of public understanding - essentially, a de-education strategy. This analysis challenges such a hegemony and, through its presentation at conferences, public lectures, publications and broadcasts (cited elsewhere in this submission) makes the case for deliberative contestation over social and economic realities and visions. This is an attempt at public education and to trial a diffusion strategy commensurate with the principles of Democratic Evaluation. The methodological approach is Popperian 'falsification'. Each card has an assertion on its face with a (evidence-based) refutation on its reverse - some cards are pedagogical in keeping with the public education aspect of the presentation.

  • 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.

  • Eruption of matter, dark energy and the Universe from a pre-universe

    Galiyev, Shamil; Galiyev, TS (2017)

    The origin of the Universe is being studied as an jump of an initial scalar field from a pre-universe. The scalar field is described by a cubic nonlinear multidimensional Klein-Gordon equation. The approximate solutions are presented. They describe scalar fields, scalar potentials and a weakly oscillating pre-Universe. At any moment the pre-Universe gives a birth to the billions of ‘seeds’ of rapidly evolving Universes. One of them accidentally formed our Universe during some quantum action. The strongly-nonlinear model of the eruption of the Universe from the pre-universe is developed in which all elements fit together in a tight and natural way. The origin of the particles, matter and dark energy is directly related to the strongly-nonlinear properties of the quantum scalar fields and the resonant interaction and oscillations of them. The initial energy of the field is converted into particles during the eruption. They could work like a scaffold creating the four-dimensional spacetime. Some highly energetic particles could be very stable. Perhaps, these particles had been stable for billions of years before they begun to decay. This process can determine the law of expansion the modern Universe. On the other hand, these particles may correspond to the dark matter. However, the bulk of the initial energy remained unused. Perhaps, this energy was locked into the formed four-dimensional spacetime. This energy may correspond to the dark energy. The Universe is considered as a wave system. A scenario is developed, when the Universe begins in a state that differs greatly from that of the theories of the Big Bang and the inflation. The Universe was born having a finite volume. We believe that the coherent model for the emergence and initial evolution of the Universe is presented.

    In this editorial for Takahe I outlined the function of the cultural studies section as opposed to the art, fiction and poetry sections, and argued that the distinctions usually drawn between high and low arts should not apply to cultural studies.

  • My God, MySky Is Great!

    Agee, Thomas (2009)

    Enough friends had raved about MySky, which has been around for a year or now, that I finally broke down and joined the club. MySkyHDi, with new high-definition TV capability, has a very attractive subscription deal, $99.95 for installation and $15 a month, compared to a one-off fee of $599. Initially the subscription is the cost of a decent dinner for two and, ongoing, a latte a week. Even with our analogue TV, the improved picture quality and crispness is certainly noticeable.
