A protective refrigerator for storing material that can tolerate a limited temperature range includes a back-up thermostat set to open and close over a range slightly larger than an existing thermostat, yet still within that limited temperature range. The refrigerator has an indicator reporting relevant storage conditions to the exterior. An embedded computer for storing data and reporting data is optional, and may use a local or wider communications network such as the Internet. If present, the computer may be made to print certificates on a local or remote printer that verify proper storage conditions such as for vaccines.

A game board has a playing surface allowing play, using darts, for two players or two teams of players. The game board further has two sides or halves - one half being a defensive half for a first player or team of players and an offensive half for a second player or team of players, and the other half being an offensive half for a first player or team of players and a defensive half for a second player or team of players. The game board has a plurality of targets. These target areas have a plurality of concentric target areas having an inner target area and an outer target area wherein the inner target areas are associated with an offensive half of the game board and the outer areas are associated with a defensive half of the game board.

|PCT/NZ2012/000201||CALDERA HEALTH LIMITED||WATSON, James Douglas|
Methods for diagnosing the presence of prostate cancer in a subject are provided, such methods including detecting the levels of expression of multiple polypeptide biomarkers in a biological sample obtained from the subject and comparing the levels of expression with predetermined threshold levels. Levels of expression of at least two of the polypeptide markers that are above the predetermined threshold levels are indicative of the presence of prostate cancer in the subject. Determination of the expression levels of specific combinations of biomarkers can also be used to determine the type and/or stage of prostate cancer.

|PCT/NZ2011/000232||AIRWAY LIMITED||HOYT, Berwyn Lee|
The invention is a rotational sensor to sense an object's angle and methods to analyse the sensor output. The sensor has a first emitting source, to either emit onto, or from the object, a first receiving sensor, to receive emissions from the first emitting source, either directly or indirectly, the emissions received dependent on said angle, first receiving sensor outputting a first signal a course measurement of the angle. Also present is a second emitting source, to emit onto, or from the object and a second receiving sensor, to receive emissions from the second emitting source, either directly or indirectly the emissions received again dependent on said angle, second receiving sensor outputting a second signal, as a fine measurement of the angle. A method of use of the sensor is disclosed together with a method of combining the fine and course measurements to output a signal with zero error.

Disclosed is a fastener to engage and hold a first member to a second member. Fastener has a clip member adapted to install into a first aperture on the first member, the clip member having, a main body and a clipping tongue biased away from the body to engage the aperture. The clip also has a mounting portion extending outwardly. A washer can pass over the mounting portion and the washer has an extension to pass between and wedge the main body and the clipping tongue apart. A fastener then engages the mounting portion to secure the clip member, washer, and second member, to the first member.
