In a recent study we undertook we analyzed a relatively simple day-to-day technology namely the use of automatic teller machines (ATMs) by older adults. Our results alert to the fact that for an aging population Worldwide, even seemingly simple technological products (such as ATMs) have to be in future more carefully designed to be all-inclusive (e.g. intuitively usable by all) so that individuals do not feel marginalized by financially-oriented [as well as other] technology. This will enable obvious immediate benefits for people, including increased productivity, quality of life and independence. Recent studies have proven that belonging to social groups and networks – in sum, feeling included through one’s relationships in society – can be just as important for one’s health as diet and exercise – social isolation can be a health hazard comparable to that of smoking, high blood pressure and obesity (Jetten et al. 2009). Computers and technology, on the other hand, are to become ever more present in society (Challenger 2009). We thus believe that steps have to be taken to prevent the elderly and other groups with limitations from feeling disconnected in an increasingly technological World. Otherwise we will incur hidden costs at a growing rate (U.S. Census Bureau).

Background: Limb muscle dysfunction is prevalent in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and it has important clinical implications, such as reduced exercise tolerance, quality of life, and even survival. Since the previous American Thoracic Society/European Respiratory Society (ATS/ERS) statement on limb muscle dysfunction, important progress has been made on the characterization of this problem and on our understanding of its pathophysiology and clinical implications.

peer-reviewed; The study of history is a well established discipline. For over sixty years teachers and students of history have been served by Irish Historical Studies which has set the standard for most professional writing of history in Ireland. In recent years historians have opted to answer new needs by publishing new publications such as the Irish Economic and Social History Journal and History Ireland. Irish universities too, have a well earned reputation in fostering historical analysis and scholarship. The University of Limerick History Society, established in 1997, devoted itself to promoting the study of history within the University. With the active support of Dr. Bernadette Whelan and the history faculty the Society grew to become one of the most active groups on campus. At its foundation, members of the History Society adopted the idea of producing a journal dedicated to publishing both undergraduate and postgraduate work. In conjunction with this. members of the Society thought it appropriate to publish the papers presented at their meetings. This first volume of History Studies contains papers presented to the History Society, including those delivered as part of the Holocaust Forum which took place in November-December 1997. With the support of the history faculty and the financial support of generous benefactors within the University...

peer-reviewed; It is with great pleasure that the editors present volume four of History Studies. It is hoped that the reader finds this volume a worthy successor to the preceeding volumes, these provide the foundations upon which we have sought to build. This journal represents a vital and in many respects a unique link between the University of Limerick History Society, Department of History and the broader university communities. The key function of this publication is to act as a gateway, providing an opportunity to young scholars to publish portions of their work. It also contributes to what is an impressive profile of historical publishing within the University of Limerick student community. As editors we were constantly humbled by the breadth and depth of the subjects tackled by the authors. It was our intention to provide as free a canvass as possible, to allow the contributors to explore their topics as they wished. This approach was pursued with the intenlion of creating a collection of pieces, that as well as supplying the reader with information, was also lively and entenaining. The greatest joy for us was when assembling the final document, the thematic interrelationships revealed themselves. It is our hope that History Studies is a much a joy to read as it was to edit.

peer-reviewed; It is with great pleasure that the editors present volume five of History Studies, the journal of the History Society of the University of Limerick. It is our opinion that this volume marks a watershed in the life of this journal. The strength and quality of the articles is selfevident. In this volume we are delighted to publish work from contributors across a broad spectrum of academia; encompassing undergraduate, masters and doctoral levels. At the risk of striking an arrogant note, the articles contained within volume five have reached new heights in respect of diversity, content and writing style. The editing of this volume was both rewarding and entertaining. To our contributors we are most grateful for their insight and generosity. It is our hope that brave young scholars will continue to contribute to our journal. Without them we would not be writing this editorial. Bravo! Declan Jackson John Maguire ]ennifer Moore

The State, Society and Governance in Melanesia Project is an outstanding example of collaboration between university and government sectors. The Project was conceived in December 1994 when Pacific Islands specialists in the Research School of Pacific and Asian Studies (RSPAS) of the Australian National University (ANU) agreed that there was an urgent need to address issues of governance and state-society relationships in the Melanesian region. Accordingly, a detailed proposal was made by the School to the University’s Strategic Development Fund. In September 1995, in University-wide competition, this bid won a major commitment of $275,000 per annum from the University to provide for the appointment of three fellows to the State, Society and Governance in Melanesia (SSGM) Project. In the meantime an approach had been made by the Director of the RSPAS, Professor Merle Riklefs, to the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT). DFAT agreed to finance the secondment of a senior officer, Mr David Ambrose, to the RSPAS for three years to liaise at a senior level with the Australian and foreign governments, with other universities and with the corporate sector in developing and coordinating research activities on the perceived crises of governance...

The churches are crucial actors in the response to Papua New Guineas growing problem with HIV/AIDS, but often they excite ambivalence. While several have led the way in supporting people affected by HIV, Christianity tends to be identified with teachings about sexuality and an opposition to condoms that many people involved with prevention deplore. In this paper I try to move beyond the glib assessment that the churches are bad at prevention, good at care. I frame HIV/AIDS in terms of development, and broadly conceptualise the activities that can affect the course and impacts of the epidemic. Without venturing far into theoretical debates surrounding civil society and social capital, I use these concepts or ideas associated with them - to think about the churches. Although they are major institutions in PNG and other Pacific Island countries, very little secular analysis of their contemporary social capacities and roles is available. Finally, I reflect upon the future roles of the churches in response to HIV/AIDS. These parting thoughts have some bearing on general issues concerning the role of churches in development.; no

[Introduction]:Despite batteries of tests given at intervals during schooling years, literacy rates among Pacific Islands populations are low, particularly in Melanesia. Low literacy rates are markers not only of inability to read but also of a lack of communication flows. Remedies are scattered and piecemeal at best, dramatically affecting book publishing, an under-rated area of importance for civil society. I use the term civil society here in three senses: • contractually, as in the rights of citizens within states; • representatively, as in peoples' participation in non-governmental activities (both formal associations and non-formal communities) to supplement or to balance states' actions; and • morally, as in the ability of people to discuss their differences (including digitally, electronically, in print and writing), rather than resorting to violence, to settle them. Some coordination exists among different sectors of the book chain -- writers, publishers, booksellers, librarians, teachers, readers -- but the scope for improvement is great. Although some publishers cooperate, by and large, they operate independently if not competitively -- be they governmental agencies, churches and other non-governmental organizations (NGOs)...

peer-reviewed; The quality and diversity of the contributions to volume seven of History Studies is indicative of the niche which the journal has established in the field of academic publishing as the sole post-graduate produced history periodical in Ireland. The broad compass of historical research being conducted at undergraduate, post-graduate and post-doctoral levels is reflected in the content of this volume. Last year, volume six marked a new and highly successful departure for History Studies with the introduction of a book review section and the establishment of an annual forum. This edition consolidates these developments as well as expanding the scope of the journal to incorporate an archival profile of Special Collections at the University of Limerick. It is envisaged that this will become a standard feature of future editions. The History Studies forum has taken its lead from progressive independent initiatives such as the annual Irish History Students' Association Conference and the Irish Historical Society post graduate seminar, which provide a medium for postgraduate interaction. A series of student-led collaborative inter-university conferences have also proved to be successful in establishing research links and awareness between post-graduate students. On the publishing front...
