The Hatchet Man

The Hatchet Man is a pre-Code film directed by William A. Wellman and starring Edward G. Robinson. Warner Bros. had purchased the David Belasco/Achmed Abdullah play The Honorable Mr. Wong about the Tong gang wars. Made during the few years before strict enforcement of the Production Code, The Hatchet Man has elements that would not be allowed such as adultery, a somewhat graphic use of a flying hatchet. Wong Low Get is the most respected hatchet man of his Tong. Having sworn total allegiance, he cannot turn down an order one to kill his best friend Sun Yat Ming, his friend forgives him in advance of his execution, begging only that Wong raise his daughter Toya San as his own. Wong does as he has sworn, she marries him out of a sense of obligation, but a handsome younger gangster, Harry En Hai, gets her to leave Wong, disgracing him and leading to a shocking turn of events.

Makeup artists had noticed that audiences were more to reject Western actors in Asian disguise if the faces of actual Asians were in near proximity. Rather than cast the film with all Asian actors, which would have meant no star names to attract American audiences, studios eliminated most of the Asian actors from the cast; that said, this film contains a number of Asian actors in minor roles, including Toshia Mori and Willie Fung, among others. According to Warner Bros records the film earned $491,000 domestically and $251,000 foreign.

Tertiary education in New Zealand

Tertiary education in New Zealand is provided by universities, institutes of technology and polytechnics, private training establishments, industry training organisations, wānanga. It ranges from informal non-assessed community courses in schools through to undergraduate degrees and research-based postgraduate degrees. All post-compulsory education is regulated within the New Zealand Qualifications Framework, a unified system of national qualifications for schools, vocational education and training, and'higher' education; the New Zealand Qualifications Authority is responsible for quality assuring all courses and tertiary education organisations other than universities. Under the Education Act 1989, The Committee on University Academic Programmes and the Academic Quality Agency have delegated authority for quality assurance of university education; the Tertiary Education Commission is responsible for administering the funding of tertiary education through negotiated investment plans with each funded organisation.

Until 1961, all university education was organised under the University of New Zealand, with university colleges around the country. The colleges became degree-awarding universities in their own right. A bachelor's degree will take three years, a further year of study will lead to an Honours degree. Not every degree follows this 3+1 pattern: there are some four year degrees, some specialist bachelor's degrees which take longer to complete. Honours may be awarded with first class, upper second class, lower second class or third class, but this can vary from degree to degree. A bachelor's degree may be followed by a master's degree. A candidate who does not hold an Honours degree may be awarded a master's degree with honours: such a degree involves two years study, compared to one year for a master's degree for a candidate who does have an Honours degree. A candidate who has either a master's degree or a bachelor's degree with Honours may proceed to a doctoral degree. Entry to most universities was "open" to all who met the minimum requirements in school-leaving examinations.

However, most courses at New Zealand universities now have selective admission, where candidates have to fulfill additional requirements through qualifications, with the University of Auckland offering the largest number of selective-entry courses. Mature students do not need to meet the academic criteria demanded of students who enter directly from secondary school. Domestic students will pay fees subsidised by the Government, the student-paid portion of the fee can be loaned from the Government under the Government's Student Loan Scheme. Weekly stipends can be drawn from the loan for living expenses, or the student can apply for a needs based "Student Allowance", which does not need to be paid back. "Bonded Merit Scholarships" are provided by the Government to cover the student-paid portion of fees. The New Zealand Scholarship is awarded to school leavers by a competitive examination and provides financial support to school-leavers pursuing a university degree but does not entail any requirement to stay in the country after they finish university.

International students are not eligible for Government financial assistance. The first university in New Zealand, the University of Otago, was founded in 1869; the next year, in 1870, the University of New Zealand was founded – the overarching university entity which had a number of university colleges under it. The University of New Zealand was based in Wellington, but additionally opened Canterbury College in 1873, University of Otago came under its control in 1874, Auckland University College in 1883, Victoria University College in 1889; the University of New Zealand system – where it was the only degree-granting university in New Zealand – lasted until 1961. Now the colleges are independent universities in their own right, since 1961 four new universities have been created: Auckland University of Technology, Lincoln University, Massey University and Waikato University. Universities in New Zealand: Auckland University of Technology Lincoln University Massey University University of Auckland University of Canterbury University of Otago University of Waikato Victoria University of Wellington The overarching representative body for universities is Universities New Zealand, made up of the Vice-Chancellors of the respective institutions.

According to the Education Act 1989, universities have the following characteristics: The name'College of Education' is protected by Act of Parliament. Only universities and standalone colleges of education may use this title, thus owned institutions that are not listed in Acts and that provide teacher education such as the Bethlehem Institute and New Zealand Graduate School of Education must use alternative names. Below is a partial list of historical or existing colleges—specifically those listed in Acts of Parliament as public teacher education providers: Auckland College of Education Massey University College of Education Wellington College of Education Christchurch College of Education Dunedin College of Education Most colleges of education in New Zealand in the past 30 years have consolidated, with the trend in the last 15 years to consider and effect mergers with universit

Encyrtidae

Encyrtidae is a large family of parasitic wasps, with some 3710 described species in about 455 genera. The larvae of the majority are primary parasitoids on Hemiptera, though other hosts are attacked, details of the life history can be variable, they are found throughout the world in all habitats, are important as biological control agents. They may present as an ecological threat to the population of some species. For example, the endangered Papilio homerus butterfly is parasitized at a rate of 77%. Parasitic wasps are the main contributor to egg mortality in the butterfly species; some species exhibit a remarkable developmental phenomenon called "polyembryony", in which a single egg multiplies clonally in the host and produces large numbers of identical adult wasps. More remarkably, some of the larvae are larger than the others and act in a similar way to the "soldiers" of eusocial insects, attacking any other wasp larvae in the body of the host, dying without reproducing. Wasps in this family are easy to separate from other Chalcidoidea by features of the wing venation, the migration of the cerci forwards on the metasoma, a enlarged mesopleuron with anteriorly positioned mesocoxae.

An extinct genus Archencyrtus has been described from the Middle Eocene age Sakhalin amber in Eastern Russia.
