Hungarian and German elites alike cast Zigeuner as primitive Naturvölker in an effort to legitimize reform efforts. By writing about the Zigeuner, scholars asserted competing Magyar and German models for modernization and reform. Passionate German nationalist Johann Schwicker called for the Zigeuner to assimilate into Hungarian and Romanian culture, arguing that Germanization was beyond their reach, thereby asserting German culture's supposedly superior status as an elite culture. By contrast, Hungarian nationalist Anton Herrmann urged the Magyarization of the Zigeuner to strengthen the Hungarian nation-state, denigrating the role of German and Romanian culture. Finally, Heinrich Wlislocki rejected all nationalist modernizing efforts, presenting the Zigeuner as a romantic symbol of the premodern age. In all three cases, Schwicker's, Herrmann's, and Wlislocki's Zigeuner bore very limited resemblance to Romani lived experience. Collectively, the writings of these three scholars illustrate both the range of Hungarian-German responses to nationalist modernization, as well as the role of national disputes in shaping Zigeunerkunde (“Gypsy Studies”).]]> Wed 13 Dec 2017 14:11:39 EST ]]> Predicting type 2 diabetes using genetic and environmental risk factors in a multi-ethnic Malaysian cohort http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:30988 2 and the area under the receiver-operating characteristic curve (AUC). Models with and without the genetic risk score (GRS) were compared using the log likelihood ratio Chi-squared test and AUCs. Multiplicative interaction between genetic and environmental risk factors was assessed via logistic regression within and across ancestral groups. Interactions were assessed for the GRS and its 62 constituent variants. Results: The models including environmental risk factors only had pseudo R2 values of 16.5–28.3% and AUC of 0.75–0.83. Incorporating a genetic score aggregating 62 T2D-associated risk variants significantly increased the model fit (likelihood ratio P-value of 2.50 × 10−4–4.83 × 10−12) and increased the pseudo R2 by about 1–2% and AUC by 1–3%. None of the gene–environment interactions reached significance after multiple testing adjustment, either for the GRS or individual variants. For individual variants, 33 out of 310 tested associations showed nominal statistical significance with 0.001 < P < 0.05. Conclusion: This study suggests that known genetic risk variants contribute a significant but small amount to overall T2D risk variation in Malaysian population groups. If gene–environment interactions involving common genetic variants exist, they are likely of small effect, requiring substantially larger samples for detection.]]> Wed 13 Dec 2017 14:11:38 EST ]]> Feminized resistances http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:31051 Wed 13 Dec 2017 14:11:36 EST ]]> Effectiveness of a pragmatic school-based universal resilience intervention in reducing tobacco, alcohol and illicit substance use in a population of adolescents: cluster-randomised controlled trial http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:31043 Wed 13 Dec 2017 14:11:34 EST ]]> C-graph automatic groups http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:14202 Wed 13 Dec 2017 14:11:29 EST ]]> A novel clustering methodology based on modularity optimisation for detecting authorship affinities in Shakespearean era plays http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:29463 th and 17th centuries), to analyze and detect clusters of similar plays.

Most of this is a marine deposit known as the Ariake clay formation. Using salinity in the pore water of this deposit as an index, the mechanism of post-depositional salinity leaching from the Ariake clay formation has been investigated. This has been achieved using current measurements of the salinity distribution in the deposit and the groundwater flow velocity in an underlying Pleistocene gravelly sand layer, together with advection–diffusion analyses. It is suggested that diffusion together with possible rainfall percolation and/or upward seepage flow from the Pleistocene gravelly sand layer was the main mechanism causing salinity leaching. Detailed analysis of the test results from four boreholes indicates that for the locations where the activity of the clay minerals was less than 1.25, salinity leaching probably accounts for the observed low undrained shear strength (<0.5 kPa) of remoulded soil samples, high values of the sensitivity (St), and the formation of a quick clay.]]> Wed 13 Dec 2017 12:37:25 EST ]]> A predictive model of days from infection to discharge in patients with healthcare-associated urinary tract infections: a structural equation modelling approach http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:31069 48 h and who acquired a HAUTI were included. Findings: From the 162,503 eligible patient admissions, 2821 (1.73%) acquired a HAUTI. SEM showed that the proposed model had acceptable fit indices for the combined sample (GFI = 1.00; AGFI = 1.00; NFI = 1.00; CFI = 1.00; RMSEA = 0.000). The main findings showed that age of patient had a direct association with days from admission to infection and with days from infection to discharge. Patient comorbidity had direct links to the variables days from admission to infection and days from infection to discharge. Multi-group analysis indicated that the age of male patients was more influential on the factor days from admission to infection when compared to female patients. Furthermore, the number of comorbidities was significantly more influential on days from admission to infection in male patients than in female patients. Conclusion: As the first published study to use SEM to explore a healthcare-associated infection and the predictors of days from infection to discharge in hospital, we can confirm that accounting for the timing of infection during hospitalization is important and that patient comorbidity influences the timing of infection.]]> Wed 13 Dec 2017 12:36:58 EST ]]> Global participation in sport and leisure-time physical activities: a systematic review and meta-analysis http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:31067 Wed 13 Dec 2017 12:35:07 EST ]]> Surface disturbance and erosion by pigs: a medium term assessment for the monsoonal tropics http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:31066 Sus scrofa) are recognised as having significant environmental impacts. Here, we quantify the effect of feral pigs in a catchment (undisturbed by Europeans) in the monsoonal tropics of northern Australia. Field data collected over a 5-year period showed that the areal extent of pig disturbance ranged from 0·3 to 3·3% of the survey area (average 1·2%, σ = 0·9%). Mass of exhumed material was considerable and ranged from 4·3 to 36·0 Mg ha−1 y−1 (average 10·9 Mg ha−1 y−1). The excavations produce surface roughness which acts as sediment traps. Over the 5-year study period, there was no evidence to suggest that pigs produce any rill or gully erosion. There does not appear to be any relationship between rainfall amount and area disturbed or volume of material exhumed. However, a significant positive relationship was observed between number of disturbances and rainfall. The location of any disturbance appears to be random and has no relationship with topography or geomorphic attributes such as slope, upslope contributing area or wetness indices derived from a high-resolution digital elevation model of the site. While pigs are disturbingly relatively large volumes of soil, there is no clear evidence to support any increase in local erosion and soil structural change may be occurring slowly and only be observable over the long term.]]> Wed 13 Dec 2017 12:34:15 EST ]]> Keep the hope alive: young Indonesian musicians' views of the future http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:31065 Wed 13 Dec 2017 12:33:50 EST ]]> Decolonizing Australia's body politics: contesting the coloniality of violence of child removal http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:31050 Wed 13 Dec 2017 12:31:12 EST ]]> Cultural and religious beliefs and values, and their impact on preferences for end-of-life care among four ethnic groups of community-dwelling older persons http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:31049 Wed 13 Dec 2017 12:30:34 EST ]]> Balancing cognitive diversity and mutual understanding in multidisciplinary teams http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:31040 Wed 13 Dec 2017 12:24:23 EST ]]> On the efficient estimation of small failure probability in slopes http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:31039 pf) is small, the direct Monte Carlo simulation requires a large number of simulations. Subset simulation is one of most efficient variance reduction techniques for the simulation of small pf. It has been recently proposed to use subset simulation instead of direct Monte Carlo simulation in RFEM. It is noted, however, that subset simulation requires calculation of the factor of safety (FS), while direct Monte Carlo requires only the examination of failure or non-failure. The search for the FS in RFEM could be a tedious task. For example, the search for the FS of slope stability by the strength reduction method (SRM) usually requires much more computational time than a failure or non-failure checking. In this paper, the subset simulation is combined with RFEM, but the need for the search of FS is eliminated. The value of yield function in an elastoplastic finite element analysis is used to measure the safety margin instead of the FS. Numerical experiments show that the proposed approach gives the same level of accuracy as the traditional subset simulation based on FS, but the computational time is significantly reduced. Although only examples of slope stability are given, the proposed approach will generally work for other types of geotechnical applications.]]> Wed 13 Dec 2017 12:23:56 EST ]]> Running performance in the heat is improved by similar magnitude with pre-exercise cold-water immersion and mid-exercise facial water spray http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:31038 P = 0.01) and SPRAY (24.6 ± 3.3 min; P = 0.01) compared to CON (25.2 ± 3.2 min).

Critically acclaimed and awarded at both European and Asian film festivals, it was first heavily edited and then supressed by its American distributors as being unsuitable for Western audiences (Fellion 2013). Despite its lack of international release, it has since gone on to achieve cult status, being especially celebrated for its exuberant art direction and set design. Combining a visual palette of bold, rich hues with costumes that often appear as an extension of their painted backdrops, Tears of the Black Tiger sets out to celebrate and challenge the cinematic traditions of the American western and the European romance by reimagining them through the lens of a distinctly Asian genre; the overwrought comedy-action-melodrama. While both the characters and the actions they undertake in the film are used to advance Sasanatieng's critical homage to the West, it is in the film's mise-en-scène in general, and in its set design in particular, that he brings into question the very notion of the Oriental interior as "other".]]> Wed 13 Dec 2017 11:27:29 EST ]]> Interior design and architecture: critical and primary sources - public interaction http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:27761 Wed 13 Dec 2017 11:22:30 EST ]]> Introduction: what is the empirical? http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:17639 Wed 13 Dec 2017 11:16:22 EST ]]> Randomized trial of a hypofractionated radiation regimen for the treatment of localized prostate cancer http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:31072 v standard], 0.96; 90% CI, 0.77 to 1.2).

Forest floor samples from plantations of three age classes (13-year-old; 27-year-old; 41-year-old) with various site qualities (II–VII) were collected from the Kuitpo radiata pine plantations in the Mount Lofty forest region of South Australia. The C concentrations of the forest floor components were significantly higher in the 41-year-old plantation than in the 13-year-old plantation, whereas the N concentrations were significantly lower in the 41-year-old plantation than in the 13-year-old plantation, except for the needle component. The C and N content of needles was significantly larger in the 13-year-old plantation than in the 41-year-old plantation, whereas fine woody materials, such as branches and bark, contributed less to the total C and N contents in the 13-year-old plantation. The total C content of the forest floor did not significantly differ with age, whereas the N content was significantly affected by age in the radiata plantations. The results reflect the existence of considerable variation in the quality and quantity of the C and N in forest floor components associated with different ages of radiata pine growing in sites of various qualities.]]> Wed 13 Dec 2017 09:36:03 EST ]]> Incremental network design with minimum spanning trees http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:31033 G=(V,E) and a set E0E, the incremental network design problem with minimum spanning trees asks for a sequence of edges e′1,…,e′TEE0 minimizing [formula could not be replicated] where w(Xt) is the weight of a minimum spanning tree Xt for the subgraph (V,E0∪{e′1,…,e′t}) and T=|EE0|.

Results: Thirty out of 189 infants had prolonged exposure to a PDA. The left heart remodeled to a larger and more spherical shape and thus significantly increased in volume. Most changes occurred in the first 4 weeks, plateaued, and then returned to control values. Systolic function and estimates of filling pressure increased and effective arterial elastance reduced with a PDA, however contractility was unchanged. Wall thickness increased after 4 weeks of increased volume exposure. Conclusion: The preterm PDA induces early and significant remodeling of the left heart. A compensated cardiac physiology was seen with preserved systolic function, suggesting adaptive rather than pathological remodeling changes with prolonged exposure to a PDA.]]> Tue 12 Dec 2017 15:39:31 EST ]]> Early posthepatoportoenterostomy predictors of native liver survival in biliary atresia http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:31059 45 days, change in length z scores within 3 months of HPE, and center. On multivariate analysis, TB (P < 0.0001) and albumin (P=0.02) at 3 months post-HPE, and center (P=0.0003) were independently associated with native liver survival. Receiver operating characteristic analysis revealed an optimal cut-off value of TB < 74 µmol/L (4.3 mg/dL; area under the receiver operating characteristic curve 0.8990) and serum albumin level > 35 g/L (3.5 mg/dL; area under the receiver operating characteristic curve 0.7633) to predict 2-year native liver survival. TB and albumin levels 3 months post-HPE defined 3 groups (1: TB =74 µmol/L, albumin > 35 g/L; 2: TB =74 µmol/L, albumin =35 g/L; 3: TB > 74 µmol/L) with distinct short-and long-term native liver survival rates (log-rank P < 0.001). Length z scores 3 months post-HPE were poorer for group 2 than group 1 (-0.91 vs-0.30, P=0.0217) with similar rates of coagulopathy. Conclusions: Serum TB and albumin levels 3 months post-HPE independently predicted native liver survival in BA when controlling for center. Serum albumin level < 35 g/L in infants with BA who were no longer jaundiced at 3 months post-HPE was a poor prognostic indicator. Poorer linear growth and absence of significant coagulopathy suggest a role for early aggressive nutritional therapy in this group.]]> Tue 12 Dec 2017 15:38:03 EST ]]> Molecular and clinical characterization of a series of patients with childhood-onset lysosomal acid lipase deficiency.

Odds of reporting at least 1 indicator of psychological morbidity increased by 10% to 17% for each additional high or very high unmet need and by 2% for those who had relocated from their usual place of residence for the survivor to receive treatment and was decreased by 5% to 54% for those support persons who reported that they had no chronic health conditions. Conclusions: Psychological outcomes for rural and urban support persons are similar. Those who have poor health, have had to relocate, and who have multiple unmet needs are particularly vulnerable to poor psychological outcomes. These factors should be assessed to enable early intervention for those at risk of poor outcomes.]]> Tue 12 Dec 2017 15:35:05 EST ]]> Quality of patient-centred care: medical oncology patients' perceptions and characteristics associated with quality of care http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:31055 Tue 12 Dec 2017 15:33:43 EST ]]> Referral for expert physical activity counseling: a pragmatic RCT http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:31054 Tue 12 Dec 2017 15:32:12 EST ]]> Integral control of Port-Hamiltonian systems: nonpassive outputs without coordinate transformation http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:31063 Tue 12 Dec 2017 15:28:28 EST ]]> Emancipation in Latin America: on the pedagogical turn http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:31053 Tue 12 Dec 2017 12:35:09 EST ]]> Latin America as political science's other http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:31052 Tue 12 Dec 2017 12:33:53 EST ]]> Interventions for increasing fruit and vegetable consumption in children aged five years and under http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:31041 Tue 12 Dec 2017 10:04:20 EST ]]> Developing implementation science to improve the translation of research to address low back pain: a critical review http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:31042 Tue 12 Dec 2017 10:02:26 EST ]]> Doctoral candidates as learners: a study of individual differences in responses to learning and its management http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:31034 n = 1390) completed a suite of metacognitive questionnaires indicating management of affective, intellectual and contingency demands in learning. Responses to the questionnaires were analysed for evidence of individual differences in reported metacognitive behaviours. Three patterns of metacognitive response to doctoral learning were identified through cluster analysis: Constructive Engagement, Struggling to Engage and Disengaged. Central to these clusters was the quality of each student's underlying epistemic framework, and the appropriateness of that framework for doctoral study. Cluster membership was broadly independent of demographic and candidate factors. It is concluded that interventions (supervisory or institutional) need to focus on more than technical aspects of candidacy, and give explicit support to underlying epistemic growth.]]> Tue 12 Dec 2017 09:26:02 EST ]]> Characterization and reactivity of iron based nanoparticles synthesized by tea extracts under various atmospheres http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:31048 Tue 12 Dec 2017 09:13:39 EST ]]> 'A brutal blow against the democratic normality': unlearning the epistemology of the political http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:31047 Blindness and Seeing. Both novels tackle directly a central, if not the central, signature metaphor of Western political thought, namely that of ‘seeing the light’. This metaphor takes many forms and recurs throughout the tradition of Western political philosophy as a source, legitimiser, and validator of knowing, and perhaps even a guarantor of knowledge. In particular, this metaphor has served to make knowable whatever it is that is signified by ‘the political’. By extension, it also means that whatever might be outside of this epistemological frame is rendered unknowable, if not unthinkable. Both of Saramago’s novels provide a fruitful means to recalibrate how we might know ‘the political’. The novels call into question the epistemic signatures that frame our commonly accepted understandings of ‘the political’ and in so doing provoke us further to question how we might move towards unlearning the epistemology of the political.]]> Tue 12 Dec 2017 09:12:55 EST ]]> Reoccupying the political: transforming political science
