Credit risk and securitisation in the South African banking sector
(Danubius University, 2017)
This paper investigates the relationship between credit risk and securitisation in the South African banking sector. Panel data analysis was used to analyse annual observations from four major South African banks for a ...
An assessment of the need of police officials for trauma intervention programmes - a qualitative approach
Officials in the South African Police Service (SAPS) are exposed to multiple traumatic incidents. The effect of such exposure is aggravated by various contributing factors that may cause intense trauma for the individual, ...
Association between nutritional awareness and diet quality: evidence from the observation of cardiovascular risk factors in Luxembourg (ORISCAV–LUX) study
(Mdpi Ag, 2015)
This study examined the association between nutritional awareness and diet quality, as indicated by energy density, dietary diversity and adequacy to achieve dietary recommendations, while considering the potentially ...

Correlating early evolution of parasitic platyhelminths to Gondwana breakup
(Oxford University Press / Society of Systematic Biologists, 2011)
Investigating patterns and processes of parasite diversification over ancient geological periods should involve comparisons of host and parasite phylogenies in a biogeographic context. It has been shown previously that the ...
Anatomy of the Southern African Boerhavia and Commicarpus species (Nyctaginaceae)
(Bangladesh Assosiation of Plant Taxonomists, 2011)
The Nyctaginaceae in southern Africa is represented by five genera of which Boerhavia L. and Commicarpus Standl. are the most species-rich. Stem, leaf and anthocarp material was collected in situ and examined with a scanning ...
Collision properties of overtaking supersolitons with small amplitudes
The collision properties of overtaking small-amplitude supersolitons are investigated for the fluid model of a plasma consisting of cold ions and two-temperature Boltzmann electrons. A reductive perturbation analysis is ...
Discovery of the source HESS J1356-645 associated with the young and energetic PSR J1357-6429
(EDP Sciences, 2011)
Context. Several newly discovered very-high-energy (VHE; E > 100 GeV) γ-ray sources in the Galaxy are thought to be associated with energetic pulsars. Among them, middle-aged (≳104 yr) systems exhibit large centre-filled ...
Comparison of sintering and compressive strength tendencies of a model coal mineral mixture heat-treated in inert and oxidizing atmospheres
The chemical interactions responsible for sintering in a coal mineral mixture were investigated in air and in N2. A mineral mixture was made up by mixing kaolin, pyrite, quartz, calcite, hydromagnesite, FeCO3 and anatase ...
Three-dimensional visualisation of developmental stages of an apicomplexan fish blood parasite in its invertebrate host
(BioMed Central, 2011)
Background Although widely used in medicine, the application of three-dimensional (3D) imaging to parasitology appears limited to date. In this study, developmental stages of a marine fish haemogregarine, Haemogregarina ...
