    • "1408" directed by Mikael Hafstrom [review] 

      Prescott, Nicholas Adrian (Australian Broadcasting Corporation, 2007-11-22)
      1408 is a puzzling film, in many ways. It’s puzzling primarily because John Cusack is in it, and it’s not a very good film. This is an oddity, in my opinion; the ever-likeable Cusack very rarely steps out of line, usually ...
    • "16 Blocks" directed by Richard Donner [review] 

      Prescott, Nick (Australian Broadcasting Corporation, 2006-08-03)
      To say that audiences haven’t heard much of Bruce Willis lately isn’t quite accurate; the actor has voiced a number of animated characters recently, even if he hasn’t appeared in the visual sense terribly often. As a man ...
    • An 180 MHz 16 bit multiplier using asynchronous logic design techniques 

      Burford, Richard G; Fan, Xingcha; Bergmann, Neil W (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Computer Society (IEEE Publishing), 1994)
      A CMOS digital logic design technique is described which exploits the advantages of fast precharged logic and efficient latch design commonly used in synchronous systems while maintaining the features of localized control ...

    • 2014 Budget, policy versus politics: seven or 126 taxes? 

      Kenny, Paul (LexisNexis, 2014-05)
      The 2014 Federal Budget's budget deficit debt levy arguably takes Australia from 125 to 126 taxes. With the high probability of significant tax reform under the new federal Liberal Coalition government, it is pertinent to ...
    • ‘25 degrees of separation’ versus the ‘ease of doing it closer to home’: Motivations to offshore surrogacy arrangements amongst Australian citizens 

      Riggs, Damien Wayne (Edinburgh University Press, 2015-03)
      At present, onshore commercial surrogacy is illegal in all Australian states and territories. By contrast, offshore commercial surrogacy is legal in all bar one territory and two states. As a result, significant numbers ...

    • "3:10 To Yuma" directed by James Mangold [review] 

      Prescott, Nicholas Adrian (2008-02-14)
      Fifty years ago, Elmore Leonard (these days most revered as a crime writer, whose novels include Get Shorty, Out of Sight and Killshot, which has also just been filmed) wrote a short story called 3:10 to Yuma. It centred ...
    • The 3D CVE as a cross-cultural classroom 

      Wyeld, Theodor; Prasolova-Forland, Ekaterina; Chang, Teng Wen (Episode Publishers, 2006)
      Much architectural design work increasingly addresses an international audience. But many designers continue to work in isolation. In practice, however, their work includes international collaboration. This requires ...
    • 3D information visualisation: an historical perspective 

      Wyeld, Theodor (IEEE, 2005-07)
      The use of 3D visualisation of digital information is a recent phenomenon. It relies on users understanding 3D perspectival spaces. Questions about the universal access of such spaces has been debated since its inception ...
    • 3D Mapping of the Submerged Crowie Barge Using Electrical Resistivity Tomography 

      Simyrdanis, Kleanthis; Moffat, Ian Alexander; Papadopoulos, Nikos; Kowlessar, Jarrad; Bailey, Marian (Hindawi, 2018-05-08)
      This study explores the applicability and effectiveness of electrical resistivity tomography (ERT) as a tool for the high-resolution mapping of submerged and buried shipwrecks in 3D. This approach was trialled through ...

    • "44 Inch Chest" directed by Malcolm Venille [review] 

      Prescott, Nick (Australian Broadcasting Corporation, 2010-11-12)
      I can’t quite believe that it was almost ten years ago that I was raving to everyone I knew about an independent film from England called Sexy Beast. The great Ray Winstone (who began his career on TV in Robin of Sherwood, ...
    • 5-HT3 and 5-HT4 antagonists inhibit peristaltic contractions in guinea-pig distal colon by mechanisms independent of endogenous 5-HT 

      Sia, TC; Whiting, Malcolm John; Kyloh, Melinda; Nicholas, Sarah J; Oliver, John Reginald; Brookes, Simon Jonathan; Dinning, Phillip; Wattchow, David Anthony; Spencer, Nicholas John (Frontiers, 2013-08)
      Recent studies have shown that endogenous serotonin is not required for colonic peristalsis in vitro, nor gastrointestinal (GI) transit in vivo. However, antagonists of 5-Hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) receptors can inhibit ...
