La métalangue sémantique naturelle et la lutte contre le syndrome du franchissement du gué - Peeters, Bert
La plupart des spécialistes de l’interculturel souffrent du syndrome du franchissement du gué : ils continuent de sauter d’une pierre à l’autre, sans jamais tomber à l’eau, mais ils oublient de franchir la rivière (Kleiber 2001). Ils se proposent d’expliciter ce qui est culturellement spécifique sans toutefois arriver à ce qui devrait être l’objectif ultime : une description où spécialistes et non-spécialistes, locuteurs natifs et non natifs se retrouvent. Le moyen de réaliser une telle description existe. Il consiste à recourir à la métalangue sémantique naturelle (MSN), dont le lexique et la grammaire assurent la neutralité culturelle et donc l’universalité....
Research as praxis: a research mentoring platform for academic women - Barrett, M. A.; Dolnicar, S.; Kaidonis, M.; Moerman, L. C.; Randle, M.; Wood, C.
In response to the continuing under-representation of women in academic positions of higher rank, the Faculty of Commerce and the Employment, Equity and Diversity unit at the University of Wollongong jointly supported a Women in Commerce Research Platform (WICRP) with the view to increasing research of women in commerce. We describe the WICRP and evaluate it in the context of prior research related to the specific challenges faced by female academics. The WICRP pilot period was reviewed using surveys and open ended questions and our findings are generally consistent with prior research. This paper draws on these findings and in...
Two problems in finite elasticity - Padukka Withana, Himanshuki Nilmini
Some materials encountered in nature and used in engineering exhibit mechanical effects which cannot be adequately explained by classical linear elastic theories. For example, rubber is an elastic material that undergoes large elastic deformations, and therefore renders a non-linear mechanical behavior. An analytical investigation dealing with the problem of static deformation of such materials therefore involves highly non-linear equations leading to arduous mathematical work. Consequently there exists only a limited number of known exact solutions for such problems in the field of finite elasticity.This thesis is concerned with two problems of finite elastic deformations of rubber blocks. Rubber has been...
The role of emotional intelligence and personality in moral reasoning - Athota, V Sagar; O'connor, Peter J; Jackson, C
In this study we investigated the potential role of Emotional Intelligence (EI) in Moral Reasoning (MR). A sample of 131undergraduate students completed a battery of psychological tests, which included measures of Emotional Intelligence, Moral Reasoning and the Big Five dimensions of personality. Results demonstrated support for a proposed model of the relationship between Emotional Intelligence, personality and Moral Reasoning. Specifically, Emotional Intelligence was found to be a significant predictor of four of the Big Five personality dimensions (Extraversion, Openness, Neuroticism, Agreeableness), which in turn were significant predictors of Moral Reasoning. These results have important implications in regards to our current...
Policy intervention and its impact: analysing New Labour's public service reform model as applied to local authority housing in England. - Pawson, H.; Jacobs, K
This paper discusses recent experience of public service reform in the UK, in terms of its theoretical underpinning, the mechanisms developed to effect change, and the impacts of change. Crucial aspects of the regime that have evolved under New Labour here include the roles of external inspection and quasi-markets. Our key claim is that a close study of the enactment of public service reform provides important insights about the conduct of government practices that are often absent in more abstract interpretations of governmentality. The paper first discusses interpretations of UK public sector reform that foreground the significance of neo-liberal ideology....
Sediment-hosted base metal deposits. Research results for 1998. CODES/AMIRA Project P.384A. Final Report, Vol. 2, December 1998. - Bull, SW; Large, RR; Cooke, DR; McGoldrick, PJ; Scott, RJ; Boden, SB
THIS REPORT The Final Report for P384A is divided into three volumes: Volume 1: Summary of Outcomes Volume 2: Research results for 1998 Volume 3: Publications from AMIRA P384 (1992 to 1995) Research framework This project utilised a multidisciplinary approach incorporating geophysics, sedimentology and structure, lithogeochemistry, and physical and chemical fluid modelling. For convenience, the research programme for the original P384 project and the P384A project extension, has been run as three separate, but related modules. As the original P384 project progressed, this distinction began to break down, resulting in the presentation of several integrated studies in the final report....
Sediment-hosted base metal deposits: Project Outcomes Report. CODES/AMIRA Project P.384A. Final Report, Vol. 1, December 1998. - Leaman, DE; Bull, SW; Winefield, PR; Selley, D; Scott, RJ; Cooke, DR; McGoldrick, PJ; Large, RR; Garvan, G
The Final Report for P384A is divided into three volumes: Volume 1: Summary of Outcomes Volume 2: Research results for 1998 Volume 3: Publications from AMlRA P384 (1992 to 1995) This project utilised a multidisciplinary approach incorporating geophysics, sedimentology and structure, lithogeochemistry, and physical and chemical fluid modelling. For convenience, the research programme for the original P384 project and the P384A project extension, has been run as three separate, but related, modules. As the original P384 project progressed, this distinction began to break down, resulting in the presentation of several integrated studies in the final report. This integration of research...
A framework for separation of duties in an SAP R/3 environment - Little , Adam G.; Best , Peter
[Abstract]: The majority of medium-to-large international organizations have adopted enterprise resource planning systems (ERPs) of which SAP R/3 is the current market leader. This paper proposes a framework for the separation of duties in SAP R/3. Separation of duties is viewed as a critical component of an organization’s internal control structure aimed primarily at reducing opportunities for fraudulent activities. R/3 assigns profiles consisting of authorizations to users. Accordingly, R/3 facilitates the implementation of “role-based access control”, where these profiles may be designed consistent with organizational roles and assigned to users performing these roles. This paper proposes a framework for adequate...
Emergence for the need of new legal and regulatory issues on mobile workforce - Gururajan, Raj
[Abstract]: Many CEOs and enterprise executives are interested to gain insights into existing and emerging legal frameworks for Mobile workforce. The main objective of gaining such insights is in order to develop enterprise’s management strategies as these legal frameworks have profound impact on organisations. In recent months, the behaviour of the workforce has come under scrutiny because of the increased usage of mobile devices. As these devices provide mobility to the workforce, they remove the distinction between private and professional workplaces. For example, employees use organisational resources such as laptop computers at home for their private use. Due to ‘globalisation’,...
Impact of copyright laws on flexible delivery of university education - Vuori, Timo; Gururajan, Raj
[Abstract]: The digital age has greatly increased the way in which information is accessed. While the way in which information is accessed has changed in the tertiary sector in the past decade, concerns about ownership, access, and control of copyrighted information is also growing. At the same time, students are making contradictory demands for more flexibility and access to university resources from where ever students are located. To provide a truly flexible learning environment, an alternative access to library and other study related material should be appropriately supported according to the current legislative environment. As substantial users and creators of...
A discussion on the legal barriers in addressing sleeping disorders in aged care using wireless technology - Moloney, Clint; Gururajan, Raj
[Abstract]: Disturbed sleep can affect personal well being. In the case of old people, disturbed sleep will impede recovery from any illness. Therefore, sleep quality is an essential ingredient for well being. While previous studies have provided a number of solutions based on clinical trials, it appears that 'technology' solutions are not yet caught up with the problems of sleeping specific to aged care. This 'research in progress' paper provides a conceptual model of how wireless technology solutions can provide answers to some of the monitoring problems of sleeping disorders. Based on the review conducted by the JBI on sleep...
DESA1002 'Nine Quarter City' - - Brunning, Elina
Business.Culture.Technology.People.History.These underlying concepts intricately form a pattern which distinguishes Tokyo, making it unlike any other city in the world. It is these concepts which sustain Tokyo and give it its collision of traditional and modern ideas which continually impact design and the architecture of this cosmopolitan city. Architects and designers must take these ideas into consideration; Tadao Ando and Kengo Kuma are two examples of architects who have brought to the fore through their designs a feeling of space in a world which has forgotten landscape. My design emanated from these influences and thus I came to the conclusion of...
