Refereed abstract accepted. Paper pesented but publication delayed due to my medical condition so as yet unplublished Te Whare Kura Symposium Abstract- Mauri Atua – Knowledge . The Endangered Pacific Languages Research Projects. Contact person and chair John McCaffery Recent research by McCaffery and McFall -McCaffery (2010) reviewed much of the currently available data on the present state of Pacific languages in Aotearoa/NZ. This review confirms the findings and predictions of the 2000-2002 Marsden Funded, Languages of Manukau research. All research to date identifies accelerating, significant serious language shift and loss ( Fishman 1991, 2001) among the five main Polynesian languages in NZ, with three ( Cook Is Maori, Vagahau Niue and GaganaTokelau), being in a critical state and facing intergenerational extinction unless urgent m...

The adaptive response, a phenomenon sensitive to low doses of ionizing radiation, was used to assess the relative biological effectiveness (RBE) of low doses of tritium. Normal human fibroblasts (AG1522) were grown in culture to confluence and exposed to tritium beta-particles or 60Co gamma-ray adapting doses ranging from 0.10 cGy to 50 cGy. These cells, and other unexposed cells, were allowed to adapt during a 3 h, 37°C incubation prior to a challenge dose of 4 Gy of 60Co gamma-rays. Cells were replated in the presence of cytochalasin B and adaption was assessed by measuring micronucleus frequency in binucleated cells. Fluorescence in situ hybridization using whole chromosome paints (WCP) was then employed to probe the chromosome content of radiation induced micronuclei in radiation-adapted and non-adapted fibroblasts.

The relationship between the sensitivity of microtubules (Mts) to MeHg-induced disassembly and the extent apoptosis was examined in undifferentiated and neuronally differentiated P19 cells. The extent of Mt disassembly was examined qualitatively by immunofluorescence microscopy and quantitatively by polymer and soluble protein extractions, followed by dot blotting or by SDS-PAGE and western blotting. In both undifferentiated and neuronally differentiated P19 cells MeHg treatments disassembled Mts in a time- and dose-dependent manner, as assessed by immunofluorescence microscopy. However, when the extent of Mt disassembly was assessed by quantitative dot blotting or by SDS-PAGE followed by western blotting there was no change observed in the amount of tubulin in the polymer and soluble fractions between control and MeHg-treated samples....
The essays in the book do not represent a ‘lineal’ and chronologically continuous exploration of ‘Lowland Perceptions of the Highlands’. Neither do they all branch equally from a common core, as would be the case if each essay took an agreed single dimension of the subject and tackled it from the perspective of different disciplines and source types. Instead, a more fluid, multilayered pattern is attempted with the intention of allowing interrelationships to be more readily appreciated and explored. Readers are not encouraged to regard this book as a comprehensive guide. It is hoped, rather, that they will find it thought provoking and will seek to develop their own conclusions from it. Each essay, of course, is also an independent piece of work in its own right, and can be read and enjoyed on its own merits.
