  • Gordon Walters: Gouaches and a painting from the 1950s

    Online text about a Starkwhite exhibition curated by Laurence Simmons and presented in partnership with the Walters Estate from 21 September to 24 October 2015 ‘The greatest freedom comes from the greatest strictness.’ — Paul Valery (inscribed by Gordon Walters in his working notebook) Gouache Let us start with the materia prima, the primary materials of Walters’ method, but also the alchemical reference in the term connotes the transformational aspect of the creative process, which will be the real object of these notes. Despite a relentless will to form, Walters always placed emphasis on the materiality of his art. The use of gouache, also called opaque watercolour, is centuries old.

  • Review – Final Rule for FSMA Intentional Adulteration (Food Defense) Regarding Food Fraud and EMA

    The Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) Intentional Adulteration Rule (FSMA-IA) draft was published in December 2013, public meetings started in February 2014 and the final rule was published May 27, 2016. The effective date is in 60 days but “[FDA] are providing for a longer timeline for facilities to come into compliance” in at least three years, or May 2019. Economically Motivated Adulteration (EMA) – and Food Fraud (FF) – is in the FSMA law due to the text “…intentional adulteration, including acts of terrorism.” FDA announced their scope narrowed to “wide scale [human] public health harms” and removed from this rule the concepts of EMA, disgruntled employees, tampering, etc. The FSMA compliance requirements for FF & EMA are in the Preventive Controls Rule (FSMA-PC). FSMA-IA also continually confirms many times that the Food, Drug & Cosmetics Act (FDCA) is still in effect, which includes all types of Food Fraud, even without a health hazard (“Adulterated Foods” and “Misbranded Foods”). CONCLUSION Even though Food Fraud (FF) and Economically Motivated Adulteration (EMA) are not a compliance requirement for FSMA-IA, this final rule provides important insight into FSMA and assessments: Addressing all types of Food Fraud is a requirement – and subject to a recall – under the Food, Drug & Cosmetics Act (FDCA). FDA specifically reiterated the FDCA compliance requirement in sections on “Adulterated Foods” and “Misbranded Foods.” FSMA-IA stated that stolen goods (various types of theft) that lead to a public health hazard are clearly defined and expected to be covered under FSMA-PC. There were no more clarifications of key terms such as reasonably foreseeable hazard, significant vulnerability, rare occurrence, credible threat, or the threshold of acceptable or unacceptable. The compliance requirement for Food Fraud is addressed in FSMA-PC, not in this FSMA-IA. Other FSMA final rules provide some insight on FDA’s thinking regarding assessments, thresholds of acceptable /unacceptable, and the compliance priorities (see appendix of full report regarding the May 26, 2016 FDA public call). Reviewing FSMA compliance is exhausting. There are seven long Final Rules that impact all aspects of a food company. There are minute details that can lead to a recall or regulatory penalties. We have focused on the Food Fraud aspects – and tried to provide as brief and concise insight as possible – so hopefully this one part of FSMA you can quickly address. We have been continually adjusting our research focus to provide academic theory, in the form of scholarly publications, to support your countermeasures and control systems. There are many resources that are available for assisting your FSMA compliance. Find trusted resources and rely on them.

  • Stock price response to new CEO Earnings news

    Geertsema, Paul; Lont, DH; Lu, Helen (2016-08-15)

    Scholarly text
    The University of Auckland Library

    Stock prices on average rise more on good earnings news announced by new CEOs compared with established CEOs. This new-CEO attributes effect is more pronounced for CEOs appointed during challenging situations. By contrast, stock prices tend to drop less on bad earnings news for new CEOs. This honeymoon effect is robust to negative accruals. The new-CEO attributes effect is stronger for firms followed by fewer analysts but the honeymoon effect is stronger for firms followed by more analysts.

  • In defence of the 'school' in MLES

    Locke, Kirsten (2016-04-20)

    Scholarly text
    The University of Auckland Library

    The notion of school as a place of learning that is time-bound and situated in a geographically defined space is challenged by virtual learning spaces that can be accessed anywhere, at any time, on a device that can be carried anywhere. If schools are to prepare our young people for the realities of the hyper-digital context of 21st Century society, the logic goes then that they must be fit for purpose in a way that enables and empowers students to enter into and engage in this digital/societal context.

  • Knowing Receipt in the Torrens Context.

    Toy, Alan (2006)

    Scholarly text
    The University of Auckland Library

    There has long been a tension between indefeasibility and liability in personam. Because liability in personam provides a means for the knowledge of a registered proprietor to be relevant to their liability even in the absence of statutory fraud, this diminishes the principle of indefeasibility. This situation is exacerbated by recent decisions that seek to align recipient liability with the principle of unjust enrichment.

  • Fighting network space: It is time for an SQL-type language to filter phylogenetic networks

    Kelk, S; Linz, Simone; Morrison, DA (2013-10-25)

    Scholarly text
    The University of Auckland Library

    The search space of rooted phylogenetic trees is vast and a major research focus of recent decades has been the development of algorithms to effectively navigate this space. However this space is tiny when compared with the space of rooted phylogenetic networks, and navigating this enlarged space remains a poorly understood problem. This, and the difficulty of biologically interpreting such networks, obstructs adoption of networks as tools for modelling reticulation. Here, we argue that the superimposition of biologically motivated constraints, via an SQL-style language, can both stimulate use of network software by biologists and potentially significantly prune the search space.

  • Models for estimating the performance of electricity markets with hydroelectric reservoir storage

    Philpott, A; Guan, Ziming (2013)

    Scholarly text
    The University of Auckland Library

    We describe some new results of an empirical study of the New Zealand wholesale electricity market that attempts to quantify efficiency losses by comparing market outcomes with a counterfactual central plan that accounts for hydroelectric reservoir shortages. The study extends previous work by studying differences in welfare transfers between generators, consumers and transmission owners, as well as studying the effects of risk aversion on an optimal central plan.

  • CellML Metadata Framework 2.0

    Cooling, Michael (2011)

    Scholarly text
    The University of Auckland Library

    The CellML Metadata 2.0 Framework describes how annotations should be connected to elements within CellML 1.1 model documents. The framework is designed to be modular. It comprises a Core specification (this document), accompanied by one or more satellite specifications. The satellite specifications are each designed to cater for annotation of models for a specific domain or purpose. Examples include the Citation Specification and the Licensing Specification, which cater for adding metadata about citable works, and licenses pertaining to the model, respectively. The modular specification framework allows great flexibility through the addition of satellite specifications for dealing with new domains of interest, and incremental development of annotation pertaining to specific domains.
