G. Schnabel's Insel Felsenburg http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:25588 Insel Felsenburg is a striking literary manifestation of this conflict. As I argue, the narrative logic of this voluminous and somewhat bizarre novel can only be fully appreciated when taking into account its complex negotiations of mobility and movement control. Marking the confluence of two novelistic traditions, the utopian novel and the adventure novel, it is equally reliant on the settledness and the nomadism of its central characters, the former being the precondition for social order, the latter the basis for the novel's narrative momentum. The structure of the novel results from an attempt to resolve this conflict by channelling mobility into politically and morally acceptable paths - that is, by inventing a literary movement control regime.]]> Tue 17 Jan 2017 15:13:20 EST ]]> Sam Spade: anatomy of a private investigator http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:25586 Tue 17 Jan 2017 15:13:19 EST ]]> Whose national allegory is it anyway?

Binary experiments were carried out considering both equal and unequal solid mass ratios ranging from 0.16 to 6.0. The overall bed expansions including segregated and intermixed zones were monitored. The effect of loading pattern on bed expansion was found insignificant in a binary SLFB. In a completely segregated SLFB, bottom mono-component layer displayed a negative deviation up to 30% whereas a positive deviation up to 22% was found in top mono-component layer when compared to respective individual monocomponent SLFBs. The total bed height of binary mixture was found to be unequal to sum of expanded bed height in individual mono-component SLFB, showing either positive or negative deviations. The experimentally observed criterion of the bed independency has been tabulated.

A long acting beta agonist (LABA) will be added when symptoms remain uncontrolled. Both the control and intervention groups will report on exacerbations at a postpartum phone interview. The primary outcome is adverse perinatal outcome (a composite measure including preterm birth, intrauterine growth restriction, neonatal hospitalisation at birth or perinatal mortality), assessed from hospital records. Secondary outcomes will be each component of the primary outcome, maternal exacerbations requiring medical intervention during pregnancy (both smokers and non-smokers), and hospitalisation and emergency department presentation for wheeze, bronchiolitis or croup in the first 12 months of infancy. Outcome assessment and statistical analysis of the primary outcome will be blinded. To detect a reduction in adverse perinatal outcomes from 35 % to 26 %, 600 pregnant women with asthma per group are required. Discussion: This trial will provide evidence for the effectiveness of a FENO-based management strategy in improving perinatal outcomes in pregnant women with asthma. If successful, this would improve the management of pregnant women with asthma worldwide.]]> Mon 16 Jan 2017 10:59:17 EST ]]> Intelligent tuna recognition for fisheries monitoring http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:25522 Mon 16 Jan 2017 09:21:19 EST ]]> Blood metabolite markers of preclinical Alzheimer's disease in two longitudinally followed cohorts of older individuals http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:25518 Mon 16 Jan 2017 09:14:32 EST ]]> Self-appreciation and the value of employability: integrating un(der) employed immigrants in post-Fordist Canada http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:25517 Mon 16 Jan 2017 09:14:32 EST ]]> Conditional same/different concept learning in the short-beaked echidna (Tachyglossus aculeatus) http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:25516 Mon 16 Jan 2017 09:14:30 EST ]]> Contested national identity and political crisis in Bangladesh: historical analysis of the dynamics of Bangladeshi society and politics http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:25513 Mon 16 Jan 2017 09:14:30 EST ]]> Inflation volatility, economic growth and monetary policy in Bangladesh http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:25512 Mon 16 Jan 2017 09:14:27 EST ]]> The "killer of the cane fields": the social construction of the Australian coastal taipan http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:25515 Mon 16 Jan 2017 09:14:27 EST ]]> Multimedia data fusion for event detection in Twitter by using Dempster-Shafer evidence theory http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:25521 Mon 16 Jan 2017 09:14:25 EST ]]> A qualitative analysis of women's explanations for changing contraception: the importance of non-contraceptive effects http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:25519 Mon 16 Jan 2017 09:14:25 EST ]]> Convergence and divergence: the law of non-delegable duties in Australia and the United Kingdom http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:25520 Hollis v Vabu: 'It has long been accepted, as a general rule, that an employer is vicariously liable for the tortious acts of an employee but that a principal is not liable for the tortious acts of an independent contractor.' There was an attempt by McHugh J in the High Court in the early part of the twenty-first century to reformulate the rules relating to liability for the actions of non-employees, where his Honour argued that the actions of 'representative agents' ought to create vicarious liability. But the majority of the High Court firmly rejected this view, and an attempt by Kirby J to revive this theory in Sweeney v Boylan Nominees Pty Ltd also failed. However, despite the general rule precluding vicarious liability for independent contractors, it has long been accepted that there are some specific situations where the courts have recognised what is called a 'non-delegable duty of care' ('NDD'). In these situations liability may be imposed on a principal for the wrongful actions of a contractor. While the outcome of a finding of non-delegable duty is similar to vicarious liability (in that one party is being held strictly liable for harm committed by another with whom they have a contract), there is a clear conceptual difference between the two doctrines.]]> Mon 16 Jan 2017 09:14:23 EST ]]> Inflation and inflation volatility in Thailand http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:25514 Mon 16 Jan 2017 09:14:22 EST ]]> Current control with improved tracking and harmonic performance for a voltage source inverter driving a saturated induction motor http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:25305 Mon 16 Jan 2017 08:32:17 EST ]]>
