Effaith newid patrymau yn nefnydd a dosbarthiad cyfryngau digidol ar gwmnïau cynhyrchu cerddoriaeth sy’n fentrau bach a chanolig : edrych ar yr hyn sydd orau gan ddefnyddwyr, tueddiadau technolegol ac ymddygiad y gystadleuaeth. (Safbwynt Myfyriwr)

(English) Starting the PhD has opened up new challenges to me in terms of academic discipline; my PhD is a project that spans across two disciplines: the Business School and the School of Creative Industries, though the PhD itself sits within the Business School. From an academic development perspective having those two schools of thought has certainly helped me shape what I want to do in the future.

I think that there are a number of benefits for a company to work with a research partner, especially for a small company like Sain. In being a small company they have generally had to follow the larger companies in the industry in terms of development, working with a research partner has allowed them to see new ideas implemented much sooner. The company is constantly developing and as soon as something comes out from the research we try and implement it straight away.

Y clarinet a cherddoriaeth siambr gyfroes yr 20G a’r 21G (Safbwynt Myfyriwr)

(English) What an experience…
During November 2012 I was given the opportunity to join the Dweezil Zappa plays Zappa band on their UK tour. A series of events led up to this opportunity. During ZPZ’s 2011 tour, I was lucky enough to briefly chat with Dweezil – I had questions to ask him about his father’s Clarinet Concerto – Mo N Herb’s Vacation. This resulted in me posting various audio files of my clarinet playing onto Dweezil’s website. These files were clips from the DVD and tracks from the CD I submitted as part of my research. Months passed, and out of the blue I received a message from Dweezil asking whether I would like to join the band onstage to play one of Frank Zappa’s songs on a couple of dates during their UK tour!

Arwain Alldeithiau: Datblygu model ac edrych ar effaith arweinyddiaeth (Safbwynt Myfyriwr)

(English) To date I’ve been to three conferences, in my first year I went to the international leadership association conference in London, then I went to present a poster in Hawaii, which was a great experience, it was a huge conference with an international population. Then finally I went to the British Psychological society division of sport and exercise conference and won the student poster award, which was great and a bit of a shock really. I’ve recently had an article published in the Institute of Outdoor Learning magazine; ‘Horizons’. The IOL are an organisation for outdoor educators who are interested in the teaching and dissemination of information via the outdoor medium.

Manteision cymryd rhan mewn gweithgareddau risg uchel yn yr awyr agored (Safbwynt Busnes)

(English) In the outdoors we have implied knowledge, in that we believe swimming in the outdoors for example is better for you than swimming in a pool. Working with the School of Sport, Health and Excercise Sciences at Bangor University allows Surflines to research and test those theories. We’ll be able to translate the research and inform potential about the advantages of outdoor activities.

(English) A Controlled Evaluation of a Food Dudes Healthy Eating Programme for children in Special Schools

(English) Wales is an obesity hotspot, with the 5th highest child obesity rates of 35 OECD countries: in 2010, 36% of Welsh 2-15 year olds were overweight and 19% of these were obese. The literature shows that these rates are typically doubled for children attending Special Schools. These children often show change resistant behaviours such as idiosyncratic eating patterns and reluctance to try new foods, presenting the researchers with additional challenges. Although it is known that they are more likely to develop health problems and obesity than their peers in mainstream schools, they have been entirely overlooked in the existing research until now.

My Masters Research project has involved implementing the Food Dudes programme in special schools. The Food Dudes progarmme is based on the three psychological principles: role-modeling, rewards and repeated tasting. The intervention is split into two phases: the Intensive Phase (16 days) and the Maintenance Phase (rest of the academic year).

Datblygu system newydd o roi pro-gyffur quinon ar gyfer canser (Cyflwyniad)

(English) The chemotherapy agents which are in current use are highly toxic compounds and are also non selective meaning that in effect the patient is being medically “poisoned” in the hope that the cancer will die first. Prodrug technology allows for the selective deployment of highly toxic drugs into cancer cells, whilst healthy cells are left relatively unaffected.
