  • Management of Osteoarthritis: A guide to non-surgical intervention

    Abbott, J. Haxby (2014-07-16)

    Book
    University of Otago

    The MOA trial (Management of Osteoarthritis, or Maimoatanga Mate Köiwi) was a randomised clinical trial that aimed to investigate the long-term effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of both a multi-modal, individualised, supervised exercise therapy programme, and an individualised manual therapy programme, compared with usual medical care, for the management of pain and disability in adults with hip or knee OA. The first chapter of this book provides an introduction to OA and its management. The subsequent chapters provide the detailed treatment protocols delivered in the MOA trial.

  • Energy Transitions: Home Energy Management Systems (HEMS)

    Ford, Rebecca; Stephenson, Janet; Brown, Nicholas; Stiehler, Willie (2014)

    Book
    University of Otago

    Home Energy Management (HEM) offers the potential to help manage peak electricity demand and network constraints – crucial for efficient infrastructure – yet to date is underdeveloped in New Zealand. This presentation provides an overview of current and future HEM capabilities, and some of the factors that might affect uptake of such systems in New Zealand. Four key characteristics of HEM systems are identified and used to guide data collection about HEM technologies currently on the market, which are shown to break into 8 different groupings based on their energy management capabilities. These systems offer demand management through feedback and behaviour prompts, remote control, demand response, and scheduling. Additionally, emerging technologies point to a new wave of HEM systems that better leverage smart grid infrastructure. However, uptake and use of such technologies is not guaranteed, and we discuss factors that may influence the success of home energy management.

  • Cross currents: Essays in culture and discourse

    Strongman, L. (2014)

    Book
    Open Polytechnic

    The focus of this book is to illuminate patches of turbulence or eddies of confluence amongst social, economic, socio-legal, communication, language and linguistic, and psychological concepts and ideas that emerge from the concerns of contemporary New Zealand society: hence the concept for this book of essays in the 'soft’ social-sciences, or those disciplines that are amenable to qualitative analysis and discursive description.

  • Soil Liquefaction during Recent Large-Scale Earthquakes

    (2014)

    Book
    The University of Auckland Library

    Soil Liquefaction during Recent Large-Scale Earthquakes contains selected papers presented at the New Zealand – Japan Workshop on Soil Liquefaction during Recent Large-Scale Earthquakes (Auckland, New Zealand, 2-3 December 2013). The 2010-2011 Canterbury earthquakes in New Zealand and the 2011 off the Pacific Coast of Tohoku Earthquake in Japan have caused significant damage to many residential houses due to varying degrees of soil liquefaction over a very wide extent of urban areas unseen in past destructive earthquakes. While soil liquefaction occurred in naturally-sedimented soil formations in Christchurch, most of the areas which liquefied in Tokyo Bay area were reclaimed soil and artificial fill deposits, thus providing researchers with a wide range of soil deposits to characterize soil and site response to large-scale earthquake shaking. Although these earthquakes in New Zealand and Japan caused extensive damage to life and property, they also serve as an opportunity to understand better the response of soil and building foundations to such large-scale earthquake shaking. With the wealth of information obtained in the aftermath of both earthquakes, information-sharing and knowledge-exchange are vital in arriving at liquefaction-proof urban areas in both countries. Data regarding the observed damage to residential houses as well as the lessons learnt are essential for the rebuilding efforts in the coming years and in mitigating buildings located in regions with high liquefaction potential. As part of the MBIE-JSPS collaborative research programme, the Geomechanics Group of the University of Auckland and the Geotechnical Engineering Laboratory of the University of Tokyo co-hosted the workshop to bring together researchers to review the findings and observations from recent large-scale earthquakes related to soil liquefaction and discuss possible measures to mitigate future damage.

The graphic designers Index operated in The Lab as designers-on-demand; implementing the Triennial Lab signage system, printing event sheets, and manually updating the wall panels. Some of the printed outcomes of this experience are reproduced in the publication as fragments of their documentary role. Each copy of the publication is fitted with a hand screen-printed cover and set of risograph-printed posters. The 5th Auckland Triennial took place from 10 May-11 August, 2013, at Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tamaki, ARTSPACE, The Film Archive, Auckland War Memorial Museum, Fresh Gallery Otara, George Fraser Gallery, Gus Fisher Gallery, ST PAUL St Gallery and Silo 6, Silo Park.

  • Talking Dance: Contemporary Histories from the Southern Mediterranean

    Rowe, Nicholas; Buck, Ralph; Martin, Rosemary (2014)

    Book
    The University of Auckland Library

    Dance is intimately woven into the lives of the people of the Southern Mediterranean. It extends beyond studios and reaches into streets, homes, politics and families. It is expressed in a myriad of ways that reflect a cultural reality of hybrid, diverse and dynamic societies. But existing accounts of dance in the region have been subject to misinterpretation, succumbing to distorted, romanticized and exoticized impressions. Talking Dance - the Southern Mediterranean captures the true voices of dancers from Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Palestine, Egypt, Tunisia and Morocco, as well as the other countries of the region. It provides a rich montage of stories that challenge existing representations of dance in the Southern Mediterranean, revealing the diverse cultural and political experience embodied in dance and emphasizing its central role in contemporary Middle East culture.
