  • Bounty programs in free/libre/open source software

    Bounty programs are commonly used in FLOSS communities to motivate developers for the tasks which are not of their primary interest by providing monetary incentives. These tasks include creating new programs, improving the security of an existing software, solving a specific bug, giving product improvement suggestions, helping maintain the codebase and preparing documentation. In this paper, we describe the impact of a bounty program on a corporation, an individual developer and a project. We analyze the rational response to a bounty by applying the model in Selby Jr. and Beranek (1981).

  • Fluorescence: a novel method for determining manuka honey floral purity

    Manuka honey, harvested from Leptospermum scoparium, is New Zealand's most recognised honey type and commands a premium due to health???related benefits. However, the plant's distribution, relative to other species flowering simultaneously, allows honeybees to incorporate alternative nectars into the honey. Melissopalynological analysis in New Zealand is often unrepresentative due to the presence of many pollen???bearing sources; consequently, alternative means of categorising manuka honey were examined. RP???HPLC revealed that manuka honey contains distinct compounds, of which were relatively enriched and not present in the other New Zealand monofloral honeys. These main candidate compounds were isolated and have been described by mass spectrometry and nuclear magnetic resonance, synthesised to confirm structure, and as standards. These compounds, Leptosperin and Lepteridine, are a methyl syringate glycoside and pteridine derivative, respectively. Examination of these compounds revealed unique fluorescence signatures, this fluorescence could be detected in manuka honey samples the signal used to confirm that a honey was solely or predominantly consisted of L. scoparium nectar. Commercial manuka honeys were assessed by traditional analytical techniques, and comparisons were made with fluorescence signature; the fluorescence technique determined the authenticity of the honeys accurately.

  • Sustainability and the Psychologically Literate Citizen

    Harr??, N; Milfont, TL; Helton, W; Mead, Andrea (2011)

    Book item
    The University of Auckland Library

    The current ecological crisis is of enormous relevance to psychology teaching, as it is essentially a problem of human behaviour. Despite this, psychology has been slow to contribute. As a result, our environmental problems deepen, while our knowledge, skills and values as teachers of psychology remain largely untapped. This chapter urges psychology educators to consider how they can nurture the psychologically literate citizen through a focus on ecological sustainability. We present four case studies from New Zealand psychology departments. Two are laboratory exercises, one based on a social dilemma, the Tragedy of the Commons, and the other on perceptions of animal cognition. The third is a fourth year class that is open to students from different disciplines. The final case study is an action research and teaching project designed to create a sustainable school. Participating in these experiences highlights for students the ecological issues faced by people everywhere, how to cooperate in the sustainable and equitable use of resources, how cognitions and moral reasoning are affected by culture and how to use one???s psychological literacy to effect social change.

    Reviews exhibition by Jill Smith and writes of how the artist reconceptualised the concept of the talking stick to show art can function as means of re-interpreting and re-presenting research.This peer reviewed chapter discussed the work of the artist and teacher educator Jill Smith and how she had reconceptualised the concept of the talking stick to show art can function as means of re-interpreting and re-presenting research. It discussed how the artist???s doctoral work had been addressed through an alternative lens and how, drawing on principles from arts based research, data may be represented in alternative forms.

  • Effects of Underwater Noise on Larval settlement

    Stanley, Jenni; Radford, Craig; Jeffs, Andrew (2012)

    The University of Auckland Library

    Many benthic marine organisms possess a pelagic larval phase that typically results in dispersal away from the parental habitat and ends in the larva selecting a suitable benthic habitat in which to settle (O???Connor and Gregg 1998). Settlement and metamorphosis often involve a specific cue or combination of chemical and/or physical cues (Gebauer et al. 2003). The larvae of many marine organisms are known to be capable of extending their larval phase, often for considerable periods, until suitable settlement cues or habitats are detected. Some larvae will spontaneously metamorphose or even die without metamorphosing in the absence of specific settlement cues (Gebauer et al. 2003; Pechenik 1990). Brachyuran crabs seem to lack the ability to delay metamorphosis indefinitely because they appear to have a temporal threshold beyond which settlement and metamorphosis occur even in the absence of settlement cues (Weber and Epifanio 1996).

  • Major Issues in the Successful Implementation of Information Systems in Developing Countries

    Information systems projects in developing countries continue to fail. Our research aims to understand some of the major issues that negatively impact the success of public sector information systems projects in developing countries. For this, we conducted a qualitative study of a state agricultural marketing board in India. The board initiated an information systems project in 2003. The objective of the project was to connect the various agricultural markets spread across the state by deploying hi-tech information and communication technologies. Unfortunately, the project was abandoned because of the growing conflicts between the government and private vendors implementing the project. The major stakeholders in the project included the government, private vendors, farmers and traders. The data for this critical case study were collected over a period of eight months from 2009 to 2012 using semi structured interviews, field visits and observations. The findings suggest that the lack of trust and resignation (to certain unfair practices being virtually impossible to change) arethe core issues that impede success of information systems implementation in developing countries.
