    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.

  • 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.

  • Attempts At Imperfection

    Parlane, Anna (2010)

    Scholarly text
    The University of Auckland Library

    In the work of Simon Esling, the architectural, the bodily and the mechanical achieve a kind of synthesis. Strange Frankenstein constructions of bone, concrete and timber emerge, startlingly, from the back of minutely rendered military vehicles. Towering, teetering structures float weirdly in mid-air over hazy pastoral landscapes. The body, dismembered, is represented with clinical anatomical precision. Its inner workings are revealed: minus the envelope of skin they are like struts, joists, dovetail joints. There is a sense of suspense, or suspension: the works seem to hover between ideas of construction and destruction, progress and constraint. They are made with meticulous care but allude to violence. They refer to growth and building, but are comprised of fragments.

    Perfluorinated carbons (PFC), most notably CF4 and C2F6, are produced as by‐products in the Hall‐ Héroult electrolysis process for the production of primary aluminium. In the U.S. it is estimated that aluminium production represents the number one point source of fluorocarbon emissions, exceeding the semiconductor manufacturing industry and other miscellaneous sources. ...

  • 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.

  • 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.
