Women In The Union Movement: Organisation, Representation And Segmentation, Mike Donaldson Sep 1991

Women In The Union Movement: Organisation, Representation And Segmentation, Mike Donaldson

Faculty of Arts - Papers (Archive)

For many years, women have been under-represented in unions and in union leaderships. This article explains why this is the case by examining the gender segmented nature of paid work and occupations and by outlining how this affects women's participation within and representation by trade unions.

Futurebank: New Technologies And The Australian Banking Sector, Laurie Stevenson Mr

Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic) - Papers

The Australian Banking Sector underwent a period of massive and rapid change in the early 1990s. Factors such as deregulation, new technologies, bank mergers and Parliamentary Inquiries significantly reshaped the organisational and employment landscape.

The Ghost Of Ghost Creek, Wollongong, Michael Organ Jan 1991

The Ghost Of Ghost Creek, Wollongong, Michael Organ

Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic) - Papers

Every town has its tales of ghosts. Campbelltown has the famous Fishers Ghost and Wollongong is no exception, even to the point of having a ghost Creek, located at the Western end of Crown Street, near its junction with the Mt Keira Road and the expressway. Unfortunately much of the creek and its associated wooden and stone bridge dating from the 1830's is buried beneath the major roadworks in that area. The adjacent photo is all that is left to remind us of what the original Ghost Creek and bridge looked like. But why Ghost Creek? The answer takes ...


The Zeckendorf Representation And The Golden Sequence, Martin Bunder, Keith Tognetti Jan 1991

The Zeckendorf Representation And The Golden Sequence, Martin Bunder, Keith Tognetti

Faculty of Engineering and Information Sciences - Papers: Part A

The Zeckendorf representation of a number is simply the representation of that number as the sum of distinct Fibonacci numbers. If the number of terms of this sum is minimized, that representation is unique, as also is the representation when the number of terms is maximized.


Statistical Image Algebra: A Bayesian Approach, Jennifer L. Davidson, Noel A. Cressie Jan 1991

Statistical Image Algebra: A Bayesian Approach, Jennifer L. Davidson, Noel A. Cressie

Faculty of Engineering and Information Sciences - Papers: Part A

A mathematical structure used to express image processing transforms, the AFATL image algebra has proved itself useful in a wide variety of applications. The theoretical foundation for the image algebra includes many important constructs for handling a wide variety of image processing problems: questions relating to linear and nonlinear transforms, including decomposition techniques [9], [5]; mapping of transformations to computer architectures [8], [4]; neural networks [1 1], [6]; recursive transforms [10]; and data manipulation on hexagonal arrays. However, statistical notions have been included only on a very elementary level in [12], and on a more sophisticated level in [2]. In ...


Scruttonia (Rugosa, Cnidaria) From The Devonian Of Western Australia, Anthony J. Wright Jan 1991

Scruttonia (Rugosa, Cnidaria) From The Devonian Of Western Australia, Anthony J. Wright

Faculty of Science, Medicine and Health - Papers: part A

Phillipsastrea delicatula Hill. 1936. from probably the early Frasnian (early Late Devonian) of the Lennard Shelf, Western Australia. is assigned to the cosmopolitan rugose coral genus Scruttonia. Its occurrence there supports the previously reported cosmopolitan nature of Late Devonian rugose coral faunas and the faunal similarities between eastern and Western Australia in the Devonia.

New Technologies And Their Employment Effects In The Australian Banking Sector, Laurie Stevenson Jan 1991

New Technologies And Their Employment Effects In The Australian Banking Sector, Laurie Stevenson

Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic) - Papers

The introduction of new technologies into the Australian Banking Sector in the 1990s initiated numerous changes to ´╗┐employment arrangements in the Australian Banking industry. This conference paper examined a number of case studies of examples of new banking technologies and their employment effects. The paper identified two functional types of new banking technologies: those that assisted the centralisation of banking operations and; those that assisted the decentralisation of banking operations. Based on this analysis, the paper discussed the potential effects on employment structures in the Australian banking sector.


Effect Of Postinfection Application Of Phosphorous (Phosphonic) Acid On The Incidence And Sporulation Of Plasmopara Viticola On Grapevine, T J. Wicks, P A. Magarey, M F. Wachtel, A B. Frensham Jan 1991

Effect Of Postinfection Application Of Phosphorous (Phosphonic) Acid On The Incidence And Sporulation Of Plasmopara Viticola On Grapevine, T J. Wicks, P A. Magarey, M F. Wachtel, A B. Frensham

Faculty of Engineering and Information Sciences - Papers: Part A

Phosphorous acid (H3P03) applied at 1.2 gIL up to 12 days after infection reduced the incidence and severity of Plasmopara vitieola. When applied up to 13 days after infection, H3P03 reduced sporulation. In some experiments, the postinfection activity of H3P03 was better than metalaxyl, while in other experiments it was less effective. Both fungicides applied after infection reduced the incidence and severity of disease on leaves and flower clusters, indicating that postinfection applications should reduce the production of inoculum and the consequent spread of disease within a vineyard. In most cases, the addition of copper oxychloride did not affect ...
