University of Waikato

The University of Waikato, informally Waikato University, is a comprehensive university in Hamilton, New Zealand. The university was established in 1964, has a satellite campus located in Tauranga; the University of Waikato began in 1956 after Hamilton locals launched a petition for a university to serve the needs of the South Auckland region. The group was led by Douglas Seymour, a barrister, subsequently Anthony "Rufus" Rogers, a Hamilton GP and brother to long-time Mayor of Hamilton, Denis Rogers, their campaign coincided with a shortage of teachers in the 1950s that prompted the New Zealand government to consider plans for a teachers’ college in the region. In 1960, the newly established Hamilton Teachers’ College opened its doors, combined with the fledgling university, began a joint campus on farmland at Hillcrest, on the city's outskirts. In 1964, the two institutions moved to their new home, the following year the University of Waikato was opened by Governor-General Sir Bernard Fergusson.

At this time the university comprised a School of Social Sciences. In 1969 a School of Science was established; this was followed by the creation of Waikato Management School in 1972, Computer Science and Computing Services in 1973, the establishment of the School, now Faculty, of Law in 1990. From the beginning, it was envisaged that Māori studies should be a key feature of the new university, the Centre for Māori Studies and Research was set up in the School of Social Sciences in 1972. A separate School of Māori and Pacific Development was formally established in 1996. In 1999, the original Schools of Humanities and Social Sciences were merged to form the School of Arts and Social Sciences. In 2010, the tertiary partnership was widened to include Te Whare Wānanga o Awanuiārangi in the Eastern Bay of Plenty. In 2014, the university became smoke-free, disallowing smoking on campus and in university-owned vehicles; the Faculty of Law is one of seven faculties that make up the University. The Faculty is located on the southeast side of the Hillcrest Campus in Hamilton, accessible from Hillcrest Road.

The Law Faculty is located at the Tauranga campus. The Law Faculty adopted the principles of professionalism and the study of law in context. One of the key founders of the Waikato Faculty of Law was the 27th Speaker of the House Margaret Wilson who returned to the faculty as a professor in January 2009; the chief executive of the University of Waikato is the vice-chancellor Professor Neil Quigley. The University is governed by a council, headed by the University's Chancellor, former New Zealand prime minister Rt Hon James B Bolger ONZ; the University Council works with Te Rōpū Manukura, made up of representatives of the 16 iwi authorities in the University's catchment area. Te Rōpū Manukura is the Kaitiaki of the Treaty of Waitangi for the University of Waikato, acts to ensure that the University works in partnership with iwi to meet tertiary needs and aspirations of Māori communities; the following list shows the university's chancellors: Denis Rogers J. Bruce McKenzie Henry R. Bennett C. Douglas Arcus The Hon Sir David Lance Tompkins QC Henry R. Bennett Dame Joy Drayton Gerald D.

G. Bailey Caroline Bennett John A. Gallagher John B. Jackman Rt Hon James Bolger ONZ The University of Waikato operates from two campuses and Tauranga. Undergraduate degrees are offered through a satellite location on the campus of Zhejiang University City College in Hangzhou; the main Hamilton campus is spread over 64 hectares of landscaped gardens and lakes, includes extensive sporting and recreational areas. Farmland, the campus was designed by architect John Blake-Kelly in 1964; the open space landscaping contains extensive native plantings, including a fernery, centred around three artificial lakes, created by draining marshy paddocks. The University of Waikato shared two campuses with Toi Ohomai Institute of Technology in Tauranga: Windmere and the Bongard Centre. In 2018, it was announced that the University would be moving all of their Tauranga operations to the Bongard Centre, with Toi Ohomai conversely moving their Bongard students to the Windmere campus. In 2019, construction on a new campus on Durham Street is expected to be completed.

The Student Centre opened in 2011 by Waikato alumnus Governor-General Jerry Mateparae. In the latest 2020 QS rankings, The University of Waikato leapt more than 100 places in six years to 266th place – in the top five percent of the world's 26,000 universities. Graduate Nathan Cohen is a two-time world champion and Olympic champion in rowing; the university has current prime minister of New Zealand Jacinda Ardern as a notable alumna. The Waikato Students' Union represents all students on campus, publishes the student magazine Nexus. Law students are represented by the University of Waikato Law Students' Association, Te Whakahiapo, the Pacific Law Students' Association, The University of Waikato's Women In Law Association, Management students are represented by the Waikato Management School Students' Association, Management Communication Students' Association, Pacific Islands Management Students Association, Te Ranga Ngaku.

Wannon River

The Wannon River, a perennial river of the Glenelg Hopkins catchment, is located in the Western District of Victoria, Australia. The name of the river "is believed to have been obtained by Major Mitchell from the local Jardwadjali people"; the Wannon River rises below Mount Abrupt, part of the Grampians Range in the southern fringes of the Grampians National Park. The river flows south towards Dunkeld, north by west and west, through the town of Cavendish before heading south to the settlement of Wannon. From here the river flows west towards Casterton where it reaches its confluence with the Glenelg River; the Wannon is joined by twelve tributaries including the Dundas River. The river descends 214 metres over its 188-kilometre course; the Henty Brothers found that the river played a significant role in the early settlement of the area surrounding the Wannon River. Of note was the situation of the Mokanger Station, in Cavendish, purchased by Thomas and Andrew Chirnside in 1842; the main land use along the river is production of sheep for wool.

Other land uses include production of sheep for prime cattle for beef. Wannon Falls and Nigretta Falls, both waterfalls of note, are found on the river 20 kilometres west of Hamilton; these tourist attractions have facilities for visitors. During the 1880s, impressionist painter Louis Buvelot painted many scenes around the falls and the river; the Division of Wannon, an Australian Electoral Division, is named after the river. The Division was held from 1955 until 1983 by former Prime Minister Malcolm Fraser.

Geomagnetic pole

The geomagnetic poles are antipodal points where the axis of a best-fitting dipole intersects the surface of Earth. This theoretical dipole is equivalent to a powerful bar magnet at the center of Earth and comes closer than any other model to accounting for the magnetic field observed at Earth's surface. In contrast, the magnetic poles of the actual Earth are not antipodal. Owing to motion of fluid in the Earth's outer core, the actual magnetic poles are moving. However, over thousands of years their direction averages to the Earth's rotation axis. On the order of once every half a million years, the poles reverse; as a first-order approximation, the Earth's magnetic field can be modeled as a simple dipole, tilted about 9.6° with respect to the Earth's rotation axis and centered at the Earth's center. The North and South Geomagnetic Poles are the antipodal points where the axis of this theoretical dipole intersects the Earth's surface. Thus, unlike the magnetic poles, they always have an equal degree of latitude and supplementary degrees of longitude respectively.

If the Earth's magnetic field were a perfect dipole, the field lines would be vertical to the surface at the Geomagnetic Poles, they would coincide with the North and South magnetic poles. However, the approximation is imperfect, so the Magnetic and Geomagnetic Poles lie some distance apart. Like the North Magnetic Pole, the North Geomagnetic Pole attracts the north pole of a bar magnet and so is in a physical sense a magnetic south pole, it is the center of the'open' magnetic field lines which connect to the interplanetary magnetic field and provide a direct route for the solar wind to reach the ionosphere. As of 2020 it will be located at 80.65°N 72.68°W / 80.65. The South Geomagnetic Pole is the point where the axis of this best-fitting tilted dipole intersects the Earth's surface in the southern hemisphere; as of 2020 it will be located at 80.65°S 107.32°E / -80.65. Because the Earth's actual magnetic field is not an exact dipole, the North and South Geomagnetic Poles do not coincide with the North and South Magnetic Poles.

If the Earth's magnetic fields were dipolar, the north pole of a magnetic compass needle would point directly at the North Geomagnetic Pole. In practice it does not because the geomagnetic field that originates in the core has a more complex non-dipolar part, magnetic anomalies in the Earth's crust contribute to the local field; the locations of geomagnetic poles are calculated by the International Geomagnetic Reference Field, a statistical fit to measurements of the Earth's field by satellites and in geomagnetic observatories. The geomagnetic poles are wandering for the same reason the magnetic poles wander, as explained in the next section, Movement; the geomagnetic poles move over time because the geomagnetic field is produced by motion of the molten iron alloys in the Earth's outer core. Over the past 150 years the poles have moved westward at a rate of 0.05° to 0.1° per year, with little net north or south motion. Over several thousand years, the average location of the geomagnetic poles coincides with the geographical poles.

Paleomagnetists have long relied on the Geocentric axial dipole hypothesis, which states that, aside from during geomagnetic reversals, the time-averaged position of the geomagnetic poles has always coincided with the geographic poles. There is considerable paleomagnetic evidence supporting this hypothesis. Over the life of the Earth, the orientation of Earth's magnetic field has reversed many times, with geomagnetic north becoming geomagnetic south and vice versa – an event known as a geomagnetic reversal. Evidence of geomagnetic reversals can be seen at mid-ocean ridges; as magma seeps out of the mantle and solidifies to become new ocean floor, the magnetic minerals in it are magnetized in the direction of the magnetic field. Thus, starting at the most formed ocean floor, one can read out the direction of the magnetic field in previous times as one moves farther away to older ocean floor.

Sheila Ernst

Sheila Hyah Sarah Ernst British psychotherapist who helped to develop a radical feminist approach to group analysis. Ernst was born in London to Jewish parents from Palestine who trained as doctors and worked with children from concentration camps. At the age of 8 Ernst was sent the progressive boarding school Dartington and studied moral sciences and history from 1960 to 1963 Newnham College, Cambridge; the tensions and experiences within Ernst's formative years help the development of her empathetic and political approach to psychotherapist. She worked in collaboration with others to establish a different approach to psychotherapy, helped establish and develop therapeutic centres, authored many books and worked in many different countries to support others to learn these new techniques. In 1964, Ernst married Robert M. Young. In years, she suffered from the neurodegenerative condition, progressive supranuclear palsy, ended her life at Dignitas in Switzerland, she approached therapy from a political dimension, seeing ‘the personal is political’ moving away for just concentrating on the individual as the source of the issue.

Ernst's feminist approach to group analysis explored the external political and social world affects the individual. She taught at Birkbeck College on the Psychodynamic Counselling Course and created academic links to support the development of her therapeutic approach. In 1981, Ernst co authored'In Our Own Hands' with Lucy Goodison which contained practical methods for running self-help groups, draw from experiences of helping to setting up the Red Therapy group. Ernst co-authored'An Introduction to Groupwork' in 1999; this text book provides details of a process for establishing and conducting a group work for therapists or those supporting therapeutic groups, such as nurses and other professionals, in a variety of contexts. It does this by leading the group through exploring each member's experiences of groups, including the family, it seeks to uncover why things work as the do within groups, through the social and institutional dimensions within and outside of the group. This book is now considered a key work in this area, goes far beyond the idea of an introduction.

She worked at and helped to develop the Women’s Therapy Centre in London set up by fellow feminists and psychotherapists Luise Eichenbaum and Susie Orbach in 1976. This centre became a model copied around the world, help helped thousands of women suffering from mental health issues, it closed in 2019 because of a lack of funding. In 1987 she co-edited Living with the Sphinx: Papers from the Women’s Therapy Centre, with Marie Maguire, she worked with groups around the world including Northern Ireland and Israel. She help support groups in St. Petersburg, Russia where political suppression had its affects on the mind and personality, her aim was to democratise empower people to form their own skilled self-help groups. She was a consultant at the Medical Foundation for the Victims of Torture during a period of expansion at the centre
