A message from Dean Gael McDonald, UNITEC

A message from Dean Gael McDonald, UNITEC Faculty of Business

Dear :

A lot of people talk about "sustainability" as a way to improve business operations. At UNITEC, we are interested in sustainable enterprise, and we are participating in a global survey to rank 40+ countries in terms of sustainability.

Even if you do not have an active sustainability programme, we are just as interested in your opinions. The inclusion of New Zealand in the global report depends on sufficient numbers of participants, so if you would like to help further, please forward this e-mail to five of your business contacts.

I would appreciate about 6 minutes of your time to complete this anonymous survey.

No financial or commercially sensitive data are requested.

With many thanks, Professor Gael McDonald

Howard Davis Article: A Musical Axis - Brahms, Wagner, Sibelius

Brahms' warm and exquisitely subtle Symphony No. 3 in F major, Wagner's irrepressibly sentimental symphonic poem Siegfried Idyll, and Sibelius' chilling and immensely challenging Violin Concerto in D minor exemplify distinct stages of development in a tangled and convoluted series of skirmishes that came to define subsequent disputes about the nature of post-Romantic orchestral writing well into the following century.
