  • Milk whey protein concentration and mRNA associated with β-lactoglobulin phenotype

    Prosser, Colin G.; Turner, Sally-Anne; McLaren, Robert D.; Langley, Brett; L'Huillier, Phil J.; Molan, Peter C.; Auldist, Martin J. (2000)
    Two common genetic variants of β-lactoglobulin (β-lg), A and B, exist as co- dominant alleles in dairy cattle (Aschaffenburg, 1968). Numerous studies have shown that cows homozygous for β-lg A have more β-lg and less ...
  • Millimetre Wave Power Measurement

    Jones, Mark Hedley (The University of Waikato, 2010)
    There is currently no traceable power sensor for millimetre wave frequencies above 110 GHz. This thesis investigates a novel approach to remove this limitation by combining the placement of a uniquely designed microchip ...

  • Mindfulness in antenatal classes: A quasi-experimental pilot study

    Irving, Tracey Ann (The University of Waikato, 2020)
    Pregnancy is a major life transition, and entails high levels of change and uncertainty which, for some parents, can elicit anxiety and distress. Mindfulness practices may help people to cope with uncertainty and change. ...
  • Mindfulness in the classroom: An exploration of teachers' perceptions of well-being in relation to mindfulness-based classroom practices

    Mazza-Davies, Laurie Lynn (University of Waikato, 2015)
    The intersection between mindfulness and well-being is particularly salient, given a nascent field of international study has grown out of interest in what mindfulness can offer to enhance human well-being. Despite ...
  • Mindfulness-based stress reduction intervention in a sample of pregnant women in a rural area.

    Williams, Stephen Gordon (University of Waikato, 2012)
    In this study, nine pregnant women in a rural area were assessed for a range of affective and mood disorders, as well as for coping self-efficacy and use of mindfulness in daily life. A mindfulness-based stress reduction ...
  • Minding the aesthetic: The place of the literary in education and research.

    Locke, Terry (Faculty of Education, University of Waikato, 2010)
    The article discusses the significance of aesthetic as a mode of cognition and means of social cohesion. It notes the relation of aesthetic knowledge with the perception or intuition, the emergence of such awareness into ...
  • Mineral extraction from New Zealand's geothermal brines: Where to next?

    Climo, M.; Mroczek, E.; Carey, B.; Hill, A.; Barton, Barry (2015)
    New Zealand’s geothermal brines offer potential for the extraction of various metals and minerals, given both the fluid compositions and volumes discharged. The realisation of commercial value from the extracted constituents ...
  • Miners’ and prospectors’ skills in general and at Te Aroha in particular

    Hart, Philip (Historical Research Unit, University of Waikato, 2016)
    Mining was a skilled occupation, and untrained men were poor miners. A variety of skills were required to trace ore and to develop safe and well-operated mines. Mine managers needed not only to understand all aspects of ...
  • Miners’ working lives in general and at Te Aroha in particular

    Hart, Philip (Historical Research Unit, University of Waikato, 2016)
    The prospects of obtaining prosperity tempted miners to work for years in harsh conditions and often for little reward. Miners had a good reputation for being hard workers and, especially in the early days before companies ...
