    Namjera je ovog rada ocrtati interakcionistički model kolektivnih sjećanja koji bi komplementirao do sada dominantne semiotičke i institucionalne pristupe sjećanjima. Snaga semiotičkih i institucionalnih pristupa jest ponajprije u strukturnoj analizi objekata sjećanja i proizvodnje kolektivnih sjećanja od strane političkih elita i mainstream medija, no ti pristupi nailaze na poteškoće pri objašnjavanju uloge pojedinaca i njihova pregovaranja prikaza prošlosti koje dobivaju odozgo.

    Full Text Available Izmjene Protokola iz 1996. godine (LLMC 1996 Međunarodne konvencije o ograničenju odgovornosti za pomorske tražbine iz 1976. godine (LLMC 1976 usvojene su 19. travnja 2012. na 99. zasjedanju Pravnog odbora IMO-a održanom u Londonu. Tim izmjenama iznos općeg (globalnog ograničenja odgovornosti za pomorske tražbine povećan je za 51% u odnosu na iznose iz čl. 3. LLMC 1996 koji se odnose na čl. 6.1(a i 6.1(b, LLMC 1976, dok iznosi iz čl. 7. Konvencije nisu mijenjani. Povećani iznosi primjenjivat će se od 8. lipnja 2015. godine. U radu se analiziraju razlozi koji su doveli do povećanja iznosa općeg (globalnog ograničenja odgovornosti kao i opravdanost ovog povećanja iznosa ograničenja odgovornosti ako se uzme u obzir da je samo u 1,34% slučajeva šteta prelazila sadašnji iznos ograničenja odgovornosti utvrđen u LLMC 1996. Analiziraju se pravne i ekonomske posljedice ovog povećanja iznosa općeg ograničenja odgovornosti te njegov neposredan utjecaj na druge međunarodne konvencije vezane na iznose općeg ograničenja odgovornosti kao što su Bunker konvencija iz 2001. i Međunarodna konvencija o uklanjanju podrtina iz 2007. godine. Upozorava se, međutim, da tendencija koja vodi prema previsokim iznosima ograničenja odgovornosti može izazvati smanjenje interesa država za ratifikacijom LLMC 1996 što će se negativno odraziti na unifikaciju prava u odnosu na ovo pitanje. U radu se stoga razmatraju rješenja koja bi omogućila pravednu naknadu oštećenima i ostvarenje svrhe instituta ograničenja odgovornosti, a ne bi ugrozila unifikacijska nastojanja.

  11. Uticaj povećanja dometa na dinamičku stabilnost artiljerijskih raketa sa olučastim krilima / Influence of range extension on dynamic stability for artillery rockets with wrap around fins

    2007-07-01

    Full Text Available U radu su prikazani efekti povećanja dometa artiljerijske rakete sa olučastim krilima na njenu dinamičku stabilnost. Totalni impuls raketnog motora, uvećan za 50% i let rakete kroz slojeve atmosfere sa malom gustinom vazduha povećavaju domet rakete za više od 75% od nominalnog dometa. Međutim, let rakete kroz razređeni vazduh proizvodi teškoće koje se odnose na dinamičku stabilnost. Male promene bočnog momenta indukovanog napadnim uglom i Magnusovog momenta mogu proizvesti nestabilnost kretanja i nedozvoljeni rast napadnog ugla. Određene su tolerancije bočnog momenta za osnovnu i poboljšanu varijantu rakete radi sprečavanja nestabilnog leta. Analiziran je, takođe uticaj povećanja dometa na verovatna odstupanja rakete po dometu i pravcu. / This paper presents the effects of the range extension of an artillery rocket with wrap around fins on its dynamic stability. The increased total impulse of the rocket engine for 50% and flight through the atmosphere layers with low air density extend the range for more than 75% of the nominal range. However, the flight of the unguided rocket through the rarefied air produces difficulties related to the dynamic stability. The small changes in the side moment which is induced by the angle of attack and Magnus moment of the improved rocket can produce instabilities in flight and increasement the angle of attack. The tolerances of the side moment were determined for both basic and improved type of the rocket in order to prevent instable flight. The influence of the range extension on the probable errors in range and cross-range was analyzed as well.

    Full Text Available U radu su prikazana dosadašnja istraživanja erozije cevi. Trošenje cevi je neizbežan proces do kojeg dolazi pri svakom opaljenju. Erozija cevi može se definisati kao progresivna povreda ili oštećenje površine cevi i proširenje kalibra usled opaljenja, koja utiče na: gubitak ili pad početne brzine projektila, tačnost i efektivnost oruđa. Kao glavni uzročnici koji utiču na intenzitet erozije cevi opisani su termički, hemijski i mehanički faktori. Njihov uticaj prikazan je u interakciji cev-projektil-barutno punjenje. / An overview of research into gun barrel erosion is presented in this paper. The gun bore wear is an unavoidable process during normal firing. The wear can be defined as progressive damage of the bore surface and enlargement of the bore, ultimately resulting in loss in the muzzle velocity, range and accuracy. Thermal, chemical and mechanical factors are described as major factors of gun barrel erosion. The influence of these factors is presented in the interaction of gun tube - projectile - propellant.

    Full Text Available In sports recreation (and physical education as a whole it is interesting to get answers on a number of questions relating to family impacts to physical activities of a teenager and adult population. Particularly interesting is to find out how a family can influence on young people in order to persuade them to go in for sports and indirectly how a family and young people can influence on an elder population to occupy themselves with sports and recreation activities. So far, this issue has not been worked out in details in our professional literature. In recent years, however, some partial research has been done, but only to the extent to avail "entering" in to the problem and make initial steps to research projects on a long-year basis. The data on this research have been obtained from 11 to 13 year-old population of both sexes, i.e. pupils attending class 5 and class 6 at six elementary schools in the town of Nikšić. The samples selected in this way certainly represent a real basis to confirm the obtained data correct and true. According to this children's sampling, the parents' regular weekly sports-recreation activity is not fully satisfactory, because in 31% of cases, fathers are preoccupied (although occasionally with some sports-recreation activity, while mothers' share is only 11,36%. According to this sampling results, parents' seasonal (summer/winter sportsrecreation activity is much more encouraging. In fact, while on holiday with their families, 86,82% of fathers go in for swimming and are also occupied with other water, or coast sports and recreation. Mothers' share is 78,63%. In winter conditions, the situation is a bit discouraging where 34,54% of fathers and 10,45% of mothers are equipped with skiing facilities but they occupy themselves with recreation skiing 8 to 10 days maximum in a season. The above mentioned data and the data taken out from the results of the research can be useful for creating more realistic social policy within organizations of sports recreation and also for indirect provision of prerequisites for more efficient family influence on regular sports and sports - recreation engagement of children and their parents (separately and unified. For a permanent and right involvement of children to sports and sports-recreation, it is very important that at least one parent was a sportsman or, even better, that he or she is still regularly preoccupied with sports recreation. Furthermore, regular sports recreation activities of elder population provide various positive effect to their health and their overall capabilities

    Full Text Available The most natural form of human moving is running. The most common form of running is the one in a bee-line at the area without inclination. This form is realized by a successive activity of the moving mechanism in the line. There is a stereotype described in the symmetric Central Nervous System. In a case that direction should be changed, this complex form of moving become more complicated. Moving is asymmetrical now, the amplitude of extremity move in one side is not in accordance with the other one. The muscles of the one side neither function in the same direction nor with the same intensity like the ones at the other side. The change of direction is the result of the body's inclination. The aim of this study is to show quantitative relation between the angle of body's inclination and the running speed in a turn.

    Full Text Available Today modern companies are directed by buyers. Successful organizations are aware that the key issue is to satisfy buyers’ needs and to maintain good relationship with them. Such companies perceive problems and opportunities fast and act accordingly. In future only such companies that will be able to substitute mass production and generalized market approach with a flexible production and in addition to this constantly look for market gaps for their products and services will be able to survive. Further on such companies will be able to individualize their offer and in this way adjust and come closer to the buyer. However, the old hierarchical structure does not provide for that, therefore, we are nowadays talking about horizontal relationships, even among the suppliers, organizations and their buyers. The only organizational format providing for relationships and cooperation with buyers and suppliers on the one hand and increasing contentedness and successfulness of the employees on the other is a process format. The changes of the environment demand a thorough change of the traditional way of thinking and consequently the operation and organization of a company which wants to be successful or survive in new conditions.

    Full Text Available Im vorliegenden Sammelband wird der Frage nachgegangen, welchen Beitrag die Gender Studies und die Medienwissenschaften zur Diskussion um die Lebenswissenschaften im Sinne der „sciences de la vie“ leisten können und sollen. Mit Schwerpunkt auf dem 20. Jahrhundert wird ein großes Feld abgesteckt, und es wird in sehr heterogenen Beiträgen versucht, Schnittstellen dieser drei Bereiche sichtbar zu machen. Wenngleich die gemeinsame Fragestellung dabei teilweise nicht leicht erkennbar ist, sind viele der Beiträge für eine weitergehende interdisziplinäre Auseinandersetzung anregend. Dies vor allem dort, wo es gelungen ist zu zeigen, wie sich das Wissen vom Leben mit der Kategorie Geschlecht etwa im Medium Film verschränkt und mediale Effekte erzeugt sowie biopolitische Dispositive mitgeformt oder irritiert werden.The collected volume at hand pursues the question as to what contribution Gender Studies and Media Studies can and should make to discussions in the life sciences (in the sense of the sciences de la vie. The volume sets up a large frame of reference in its emphasis on the 20th century and in very heterogeneous articles it attempts to tease out points of overlap between the three aforementioned areas. Although the common problem is not always easily determined, many of the articles might provoke further interdisciplinary examination. This is particularly the case where the volume is successful in showing how the knowledge of life, for example in the medium of film, is entangled with the category of gender and thus affects media and forms or disturbs bio-political apparatuses.

    Full Text Available Sve veća zastupljenost savremenih tehnika digitalnih komunikacija koje primenjuju signale sa malom verovatnoćom presretanja, kao što su signali sa frekvencijskim skakanjem, nameće razvoj novih metoda i algoritama za njihovo izviđanje radi formiranja elektronske slike bojišta. U ovom radu razmatraju se principi i dostignuća u razvoju novih metoda u detekciji, karakterizaciji identifikaciji i eksploataciji ovih sofisticiranih komunikacionih signala u kontekstu elektronskog rata. / The extensive use of modern low probability-of-intercept digital communication signals, such as frequency hopping signals, requires development of new theory and algorithms for their reconnaissance for the purpose of constructing an electronic order of battle. This paper presents some principles and advances in signal processing and analysis technology for the signal interception, characterization, identification and exploitation in the context of electronic warfare.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2004-01-01

    Full Text Available The purpose of the editors is to take up again the most relevant papers from the conference, "The Nature of Gender—The Gender of Nature", held in Kiel (Germany in November 2000. Various authors reflect on the current debate about the constructions and production of gender by referring to the special debate in natural and technical sciences. The female contributors test and criticise popular explications for gender differences. Other authors try to analyse the particular reasons why women might or might not be interested in technology and why women study technology or natural science less often than men. The reader can select from many interesting and extraordinary perspectives from different disciplines. Perhaps some of the contributions could be helpful in underscoring similar approaches in social science. URN: urn:nbn:de:0114-fqs0401314

    Full Text Available Raziskovalno vprašanje (RV: V članku želimo raziskati upravljanje z vodnimi izgubami v javnih sistemih oskrbe s pitno vodo in ugotoviti, kakšne so vodne izgube v Sloveniji. Vprašanje je, ali so podatki o vodnih izgubah kakovostni. Namen: Opredeliti pojmovanje vodnih izgub v okviru zakonodaje, ki ureja oskrbo s pitno vodo in smernice glede vodnih izgub, načine in vidike poročanja o vodnih izgubah izvajalcev gospodarske javne službe ter preučiti kakovost podatkov o stanju vodnih izgub v letih 2010 in 2012. Metoda: Podatke smo primerjali po triangulacijski metodi, uporabljene so kvantitativne in deloma kvalitativne metode raziskovanja. Rezultati: Primerjava podatkov o vodnih izgubah za leti 2010 in 2012 kaže na signifikantne razlike, ki izhajajo iz nejasne zakonodaje. Ta ne predpisuje enoznačne, enotne definicije vodnih izgub. V opazovanem obdobju ni opredeljene enotne metodologije določanja vodnih izgub, ki bi omogočila primerjavo podatkov. Organizacija: Model upravljanja z vodnimi izgubami, opredeljen z enotno metodologijo in usklajeno zakonodajo, bo omogočil razumevanje stanja sistema in lažji postopek odločanja o potrebnih ukrepih za ciljno zmanjšanje vodnih izgub. Družba: Zagotavljanje odgovornosti izvajalcev gospodarske javne službe za doseganje ciljev pri oskrbi s pitno vodo s poudarkom na obvladovanju in zmanjševanju vodnih izgub ter višja kakovost dejavnosti oskrbe s pitno vodo so pomembni za lastnike, upravljavce in uporabnike. Originalnost: Tovrstne raziskave o vodnih izgubah še nismo zasledili. Omejitve/nadaljnje raziskovanje: Podatkov o vodnih izgubah vseh izvajalcev gospodarske javne službe ni mogoče pridobiti, zato je raziskava fokusirana zgolj na javno objavljene podatke iz resornega ministrstva in objavljenih statističnih podatkov. Dostop do celovitih podatkovnih baz v informacijskem sistemu ni omogočen.

    2015-01-01

    Krajem 2013. i u 2014. Hrvatsku su obilježile dvije vrlo različite promjene u statusu seksualnih manjina. Prvo, ustavnim referendumom istospolnim partnerima onemogućio se pristup instituciji braka. Drugo, novim Zakonom o životnom partnerstvu omogućila im se većina bračnih prava, osim zajedničkog usvajanja djece. Ovo jasno ilustrira sukobljene trendove hrvatskog društva. S jedne strane, poboljšanja u položaju seksualnih manjina mogla su se uočiti još 1970.-ih i 1980.-ih, a nakon prekida tih po...

  3. New records of the Gannet Morus bassanus in Slovenia / Novi podatki o strmoglavcih Morus bassanus v Sloveniji

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Genov Tilen

    2014-11-01

    Full Text Available Strmoglavec Morus bassanus je razširjen v Severnem Atlantiku in Severnem morju, predvsem pozimi pa del populacije vstopa tudi v zahodno Sredozemlje. V vzhodnem Sredozemlju je občutno redkejši, njegov status v Jadranskem morju pa ni povsem razjasnjen. V Sloveniji so bila doslej zabeležena tri opažanja. V pričujočem delu podajava dve novi opažanji strmoglavca v Sloveniji in kratek pregled pojavljanja na območju Jadrana. Prvič sva vrsto zabeležila 9. 6. 2014, 5,7 km od Pirana (45°34.161‘ N; 13°31.124‘ E. Šlo je za dve odrasli ptici in dva nezrela osebka v drugem koledarskem letu. Drugič, in sicer 4. 8. 2014, 5,5 km od Pirana (45°33.936‘ N; 13°30.943‘ E in le 480 m od predhodne lokacije, pa sva zabeležila en osebek v drugem koledarskem letu. V obeh opažanjih je bilo skupaj posnetih 71 fotografij. Oba podatka je potrdila Komisija za redkosti. Ti novi podatki imajo za Slovenijo velik pomen, saj gre za 1 4. in 5. opažanje te vrste pri nas; 2 prvi opažanji, dokumentirani s kvalitetnimi fotografijami in 3 prvo opažanje več osebkov ter odraslih ptic. Pojavljanje strmoglavcev na Jadranu je razmeroma redko, bolj pogosti so v severozahodnem delu regije. Globalna populacija je v zadnjem stoletju naraščala, zato utegnejo biti nova opažanja rezultat širitve areala, čeprav so lahko tudi posledica večjega opazovalnega napora v zadnjih letih. Ker so nezreli osebki manj prepoznavni kot odrasli, je možno, da so na tem območju pogostejši, kot smo mislili doslej. Prihodnje raziskave utegnejo dati odgovore na vprašanja statusa strmoglavcev v Tržaškem zalivu in severnem Jadranu ter morebitnih sprememb v pogostosti pojavljanja

    Teoretična izhodišča: Računalnik, mobitel in televizija so danes prisotni na vsakem koraku. Otroci in mladostniki jim posvečajo preveč časa, kar vodi do zasvojenosti, slabih socialnih stikov, zdravstvenih težav in opuščanja ostalih pomembnejših aktivnostih kot sta šola in šport. Zaradi manjšega gibanja se pojavljajo težave s prekomerno telesno težo kar vodi do debelosti. Sevanje mobilnih telefonov je prav tako nevarno, sploh med klicanjem, saj takrat sevajo z največjo močjo.

    Infiltrative disease of the intestine is an important cause of weight loss in the horse. Infiltration of inflammatory or neoplastic cells into the intestinal wall and intestinal fibrosis cause changes in the integrity of the intestinal wall. This may lead to altered intestinal permeability which can be measured using the contrast medium iohexol. To determine if iohexol intestinal permeability, as evaluated by serum iohexol concentration, could be used to differentiate between healthy horses and horses with infiltrative disease of the large colon. Prospective non-randomised controlled clinical trial. Six healthy adult horses and 4 horses with chronic infiltrative disease of the large colon were used in the study. Infiltrative disease was confirmed on post mortem in all cases, and included alimentary lymphoma and mycobacterial granulomatous enterocolitis. Following a 16-h fast, each horse was dosed with 1.0 ml/kg bwt of iohexol as a 10% solution via nasogastric intubation. Blood samples were collected at 0, 30, 60, 120, 180, 240, 300, 360, 420 and 480 min after dosing. Iohexol concentration was determined using HPLC-UV and the differences between the groups were analysed with a repeated measures ANOVA. There was a statistically significant difference in iohexol serum concentration between the diseased and nondiseased horses (P = 0.001). The overall difference in the mean iohexol concentration between the 2 groups was 6.07 (95% CI 3.19-8.96) μg/ml, however there appeared to be a trend towards increasing difference at later time points (240, 300, 360 min). The iohexol permeability test has potential as a diagnostic tool for estimation of intestinal permeability in horses with infiltrative intestinal disease. Further studies are warranted to determine whether the test can be used to determine the site of intestinal pathology, predict the prognosis and potentially evaluate the response to treatment.

Na primeru jednog modela taksi preduzeća, uz upotrebu metode simulacije, zasnovane na sistemskoj dinamici, izvršena je analiza efekata koje bi imalo uvođenje savremenih strategija održavanja u taj sistem. Došlo se do zaključaka koji su slični svetskim iskustvima. Najpre se mora izvršiti stabilizacija i pravilno dimenzioniranje sistema održavanja, da bi se zatim pristupilo usavršavanju sistema primenom odgovarajućih strategija. Uvođenje strategija održavanja odgovara prvenstveno sistemima kod kojih tehnička sredstva moraju neprestano da rade, odnosno imaju visok koeficijent eksploatacije. Prosečno, za svakih 10% smanjenja u broju otkaza, vremenu preventivnog održavanja i učestanosti preventivnih akcija, ukupan profit preduzeća raste oko 5%. Poboljšanja u domenu znanja održavaoca i kvaliteta rada donose narednih 5% povećanja profita. / Investments in the improvement of maintenance systems are often brought into question as to whether they are justified or not. Introducing maintenance strategies, eg. RCM, TPM, on-condition maintenance, etc., is nowadays a worldurde tendency in the improvement of maintenance systems. The simulation method based on system dynamics has been applied to a model of a taxi business in order to analyze the effects of introducing modern maintenance strategies into that system. The obtained results show good accordance with experiences wordurde. The stabilization and adequate dimensioning of the maintenance system should proceed the system improvement using adequate strategies. Bringing maintenance strategies into use predominantly suits the systems with a high duty factor, ie. the systems with continually operating elements. Every 10% of reduction in the number

    Full Text Available The foreign tree species, Alnus cordata/Loisel./Desf. (Italian alder, (Betulaceae/Loisel./Duby, not previously recorded in the dendroflora of Serbia, is described in this paper. Italian alder trees in an experimental plot in the area of Erdevik, aged 11 years, show good vitality and fast growth, and bear fruits since their 10th year. Tree heights are in range from 10.4 to 16.2 m, and diameters at the breast height range from14.6 to 34.9 cm. The morphological properties of leaves, fruiting organs (“cones” and male catkins are in concordance with the values in literature sources, although they show great variability. Since the time of plantation establishment, the absolute minimum air temperature in the nearby meteorological station of Sremska Mitrovica was -26.50C, so it can be assumed that the species is frost hardy. On the basis of the researched properties of Italian alder, it can be concluded that this species can be cultivated in Serbia as an ornamental in urban areas and as a fast growing species in forest plantations for biomass production.

This paper reviews the data supporting the use of vildagliptin in monotherapy. Consideration based on baseline glycated hemoglobin levels and age is given to patient segments where metformin is not appropriate. In addition, although prediabetes is not an indication, this manuscript briefly reviews some of the existing data showing that the mechanisms at work in diabetic populations are active in patients currently classified as prediabetic, with impaired glucose tolerance or impaired fasting glucose. Finally, the rationale for vildagliptin dosing frequency in monotherapy is discussed. In summary, this review aims to define where in community practice the use of vildagliptin as monotherapy is most desirable, focusing on segments of the population with type 2 diabetes mellitus that might receive the greatest benefit from vildagliptin in the management of their disease.Keywords: vildagliptin, type 2 diabetes, dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitors, monotherapy, elderly

For these patients hypo- and hyperglycemia constitute two major complications associated with the profound changes in food pattern during the Ramadan fast, and efficacious treatment options with a low risk of hypoglycemia are therefore needed to manage their T2DM as effectively and safely as possible. Dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP-4 inhibitors modulate insulin and glucagon secretion in a glucose-dependent manner, and consequently a low propensity of hypoglycemia has consistently been reported across different patient populations with these agents. Promising data with DPP-4 inhibitors have now also started to emerge in patients with T2DM fasting during Ramadan. The objective of this review is to provide a comprehensive overview of the currently available evidence and potential role of DPP-4 inhibitors in the management of patients with T2DM fasting during Ramadan whose diabetes is treated with oral antidiabetic drugs, and to discuss the mechanistic basis for their beneficial effects in this setting.

There is growing evidence demonstrating that PND impacts on a mother’s ability to interact with sensitivity and responsiveness as a caregiver, which may have implications for the infant’s development of self-regulatory skills, making the infant more vulnerable to later psychopathology. Given the possible intergenerational transmission of risk to the infant, the mother–infant relationship is a focus for treatment and research. However, few studies have assessed the effect of treatment on the mother–infant relationship and child developmental outcomes. The main aim of this paper was to conduct a systematic review and investigate effect sizes of interventions for PND, which assess the quality of the mother–infant dyad relationship and/or child outcomes in addition to maternal mood. Nineteen studies were selected for review, and their methodological quality was evaluated, where possible, effect sizes across maternal mood, quality of dyadic relationship, and child developmental outcomes were calculated. Finally, clinical implications in the treatment of PND are highlighted and recommendations made for further research.

    Full Text Available Die hier besprochene Monographie der Linguistin Anja Gottburgsen beschäftigt sich theoretisch und empirisch mit sprachbezogenen Geschlechterstereotypen, also mit unseren Vorstellungen darüber, ob und wie Männer und Frauen jeweils in spezifischer und distinkter Weise sprachlich kommunizieren. Im Theorieteil der Arbeit wird der aktuelle Stand der soziolinguistischen und sozialpsychologischen Diskussion zu Geschlecht, Sprachverhalten und Stereotypisierung kritisch referiert und die Bedeutung von sprachbezogenen Geschlechterstereotypen erläutert. Im empirischen Teil berichtet die Autorin die Ergebnisse von drei Fragebogen-Studien mit deutschsprachigen Studierenden. Es zeigt sich, dass bei Studierenden unabhängig von Geschlecht und Geschlechtsrollenorientierung stereotype Vorstellungen über das sprachliche Verhalten von Männern und Frauen verbreitet sind.Linguist Gottburgsen presents both a theoretical and empirical analysis of speech-related gender stereotypes -of common ideas about “male” and “female” ways of speaking. Gottburgsen takes a critical look at current socio-linguistic and social-psychological literature on gender, language behaviour and stereotyping and explains the meaningof language-related gender stereotypes. She furthermore presents the results of three survey studies of German-speaking university students. According to these studies, university students, regardless of sex and of their ideas about gender roles, continue to have quite stereotypical views on “gender-appropriate” language behaviour.

Avtorica preučuje transformiranje mentorja, mentoriranca in družbenega okolja ter proces prenašanja znanja, pri tem pa poudari, da gre v mentorskem razmerju predvsem za skupno ustvarjanje novega znanja in delovanje, ki je gonilna sila učenja. V mentorskem razmerju dveh gre za komunikacijo in recipročnost v učenju, za prenos znanja, najpogosteje z neformalnim izobraževalnim programom. Gre pa seveda tudi za mentorski odnos. Mentorsko razmerje ima več faz, opozarja avtorica. Nekatere med njimi so bolj interaktivne in takrat je več recipročnosti, imamo pa tudi več kognitivne disonance in večje bogastvo čustev.

    Full Text Available The paper engages engages with core-periphery conceptions because they are a useful "Denkfigur" in a time of increasing global interconnectedness. I argue that the core-periphery metaphor is a useful one because it provides us (1 with a relational tool of analysis and (2 with a focus on asymmetric power-relations. But it also has some serious limitations such as a tendency to be over-deterministic and to be too global in scale. In order to meet these limitations, I suggest to re-scale Prebisch, Amin and Wallersteins global conception of core and periphery to the local scale. I hold that we need to “provincialise” the core-periphery metaphor to borrow Chakrabarty’s (2000 famous term and to make the agency of local actors more relevant to our understanding of political dynamics in the Maghreb, Mashreq and Gulf region. I sketch how “provincialized” and “localized” ways of using the core-periphery metaphor could look like. This part builds on the main ideas Malika Bouziane, Anja Hoffmann and I developed in the introduction to our volume on “Local Politics and Contemporary Transformations in the Arab World” as well as my approach of a “state analysis from below”.

    160 adult tuberculous patients were selected randomly from Al shaab and Abu Anja hospital, to (1) study the clino-radiological pattern of the disease, (2) to determine the percentage of radiologically-positive patients and (3) to study the frequency of the initial presenting symptoms and to correlate them with their x-ray findings. A flow-sheet was filled and proper clinical examination was conducted for each patient. Tuberclin test, 3 sputa examinations, ESR and chest x-ray were done for every patient. Three quarters of the patients were males in the young age group and most of the patients were of low socioeconomic status. The main presenting symptoms were productive cough, chest pain, dysnoea, fever, weight loss and malaise. Patients presented rather late, with a mean period of four months. 57 % of patients were sputum positive, 80% Tuberclin-positive and 98% had a high erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR). 15% of patients had radiological features of primary diseases of which hilar lymph-adenopathy was the commonest, while consolidation was the commonest parenchymal lesion. In post-primary disease fibrocavitory type was the commonest and together with exudative lesions constituted 98% of parenchymal lesions. 90% of patients had typical upper or middle zone infiltrates and 10% had lower lung field tuberculosis. 14% of patients had pleural effusion. 60% of patients had moderate disease extent in the chest, 30% far-advanced and 10% minimal lesions in their chest x-ray.(Author)

Among completers with valid physical activity data (n=167), there was a borderline difference in the change in mean daily time spent in moderate to vigorous physical activity between the groups (11.9 min vs -9.1 min, P=.055, linear mixed model). Within the intervention group (n=87), baseline vigorous physical activity was inversely associated with change in moderate to vigorous physical activity during the trial (R=-.382, P=.01). The various functionalities related to physical activity of the gamified tailored mobile service were considered important. However, the compliance was limited. Within the current setup, the mobile service had no effect on anthropometry or fitness, except reduced waist circumference in the most inactive men. Among completers with valid physical activity data, the trial had a borderline positive effect on moderate to vigorous physical activity. Further development is needed to improve the feasibility and adherence of an integrated multifunctional service.

The vast majority of the respondents were satisfied with ePrescriptions as a whole (1221/1274, 95.84%). Finnish pharmacy customers are satisfied with the recently implemented nationwide ePrescription system. They seldom have any difficulties purchasing medicines, renewing their ePrescriptions, or acting on behalf of someone else at the pharmacy. Customers usually keep up to date with their ePrescriptions by asking at the pharmacy. However, some customers are unaware of the practices or have difficulty keeping up to date with the status of their ePrescriptions. The provision of relevant information and assistance by health care professionals is therefore required to promote customers' adoption of the ePrescription system. ©Elina Lämsä, Johanna Timonen, Riitta Ahonen.

If the patient has a severe, extended, or treatment-recalcitrant course of herpes zoster, this must be a red flag to search for underlying pathologies. Here, we report about a 64-year-old male patient with diabetes, who came to our emergency department because of general malaise, fever, chills, and a pronounced nuchal and facial swelling on the left side. Based on herpetiform-grouped vesicles and yellowish crusts, an impetiginized facial herpes zoster was diagnosed, and combined antiviral and antibiotic treatment was initiated. He was HIV negative. Despite intensified treatment, his situation worsened. We observed blasts in peripheral blood, but bone marrow biopsy was initially denied. Some days later after deterioration of his disease, he accepted further diagnostics. A myelodysplastic syndrome with blast excess (refractory anemia and blast excess II, RAEB II could be confirmed. The following translocations were detected: t(2;12(p13; q13 and t(6;9(p22;q34. REAB II has an unfortunate prognosis. Cytoreductive treatment was initiated by the hemato-oncologist.

To better understand this variability in results, an exploratory physiological study was performed comparing the effects of helium/oxygen mixture (78%/22% to that of medical air.Methods: The gas mixtures were administered to healthy, asthmatic, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD participants, both moderate and severe (6 participants in each disease group, a total of 30; at rest and during submaximal cycling exercise with equivalent work rates. Measurements of ventilatory parameters, forced spirometry, and ergospirometry were obtained.Results: There was no statistical difference in ventilatory and cardiac responses to breathing helium/oxygen during submaximal exercise. For asthmatics, but not for the COPD participants, there was a statistically significant benefit in reduced metabolic cost, determined through measurement of oxygen uptake, for the same exercise work rate. However, the individual data show that there were a mixture of responders and nonresponders to helium/oxygen in all of the groups.Conclusion: The inconsistent response to helium/oxygen between individuals is perhaps the key drawback to the more effective and widespread use of helium/oxygen to increase exercise capacity and for other therapeutic applications.

Methods: Data were pooled from eight clinical monotherapy trials including 2,340 previously drug-naïve patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus who received vildagliptin monotherapy (50 mg once daily [n=359] or 50 mg twice daily [n=1,981]. The trials were all randomized, double-blind, controlled clinical trials with a prespecified week 24 study visit. Results: Linear regression analysis of weight change after 24 weeks relative to baseline FPG showed an intercept of −2.259 kg (95% confidence interval −2.86, −1.66; P<0.0001 and a positive slope of 0.1552 kg (95% confidence interval 0.10–0.21; P<0.0001. Neutral caloric balance (no weight change was observed at a FPG of 14.6 mmol/L (263 mg/dL. Baseline FPG values below and above this threshold were associated with weight loss and weight gain, respectively. For instance, from this analysis, a baseline FPG of 8 mmol/L (144 mg/dL predicts a weight loss of 1 kg. Conclusion: The present analysis showed that treatment with vildagliptin results in a negative caloric balance when glucose levels are below the renal threshold at baseline.

  2. Clinical evidence and mechanistic basis for vildagliptin's effect in combination with insulin

    Full Text Available Anja Schweizer,1 James E Foley,2 Wolfgang Kothny,2 Bo Ahrén31Novartis Pharma AG, Basel, Switzerland; 2Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corporation, East Hanover, NJ, USA; 3Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University, Lund, SwedenAbstract: Due to the progressive nature of type 2 diabetes, many patients need insulin as add-on to oral antidiabetic drugs (OADs in order to maintain adequate glycemic control. Insulin therapy primarily targets elevated fasting glycemia but is less effective to reduce postprandial hyperglycemia. In addition, the risk of hypoglycemia limits its effectiveness and there is a concern of weight gain. These drawbacks may be overcome by combining insulin with incretin-based therapies as these increase glucose sensitivity of both the α- and β-cells, resulting in improved postprandial glycemia without the hypoglycemia and weight gain associated with increasing the dose of insulin. The dipeptidyl peptidase-IV (DPP-4 inhibitor vildagliptin has also been shown to protect from hypoglycemia by enhancing glucagon counterregulation. The effectiveness of combining vildagliptin with insulin was demonstrated in three different studies in which vildagliptin decreased A1C levels when added to insulin therapy without increasing hypoglycemia. This was established with and without concomitant metformin therapy. Furthermore, the effectiveness of vildagliptin appears to be greater when insulin is used as a basal regimen as opposed to being used to reduce postprandial hyperglycemia, since improvement in insulin secretion likely plays a minor role when relatively high doses of insulin are administered before meals. This article reviews the clinical experience with the combination of vildagliptin and insulin and discusses the mechanistic basis for the beneficial effects of the combination. The data support the use of vildagliptin in combination with insulin in general and, in line with emerging clinical practice, suggest that treating patients with

Hanover, NJ, 4Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corporation, Rueil Malmaison, FranceAbstract: Vildagliptin is a potent and selective inhibitor of dipeptidyl peptidase-IV (DPP-4, orally active, that improves glycemic control in patients with type 2 diabetes (T2DM primarily by enhancing pancreatic (α and β islet function. Thus vildagliptin has been shown both to improve insulin secretion and to suppress the inappropriate glucagon secretion seen in patients with T2DM. Vildagliptin reduces HbA1c when given as monotherapy, without weight gain and with minimal hypoglycemia, or in combination with the most commonly prescribed classes of oral hypoglycemic drugs: metformin, a sulfonylurea, a thiazolidinedione, or insulin. Metformin, with a different mode of action not addressing β-cell dysfunction, has been used for about 50 years and still represents the universal first line therapy of all guidelines. However, given the multiple pathophysiological abnormalities in T2DM and the progressive nature of the disease, intensification of therapy with combinations is typically required over time. Recent guidelines imply that patients will require pharmacologic combinations much earlier to attain and sustain the increasingly stringent glycemic targets, with careful drug selection to avoid unwanted adverse events, especially hypoglycemia. The combination of metformin and vildagliptin offers advantages when compared to currently used combinations with additive efficacy and complimentary mechanisms of action, since it does not increase the risk of hypoglycemia and does not promote weight gain. Therefore, by specifically combining these agents in a single tablet, there is considerable potential to achieve

Angiogenesis is known to be a key pathogenic feature of psoriasis. Local and systemic elevation of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF-A has been demonstrated in the skin and plasma of patients with psoriasis and is known to correlate with improvement following some traditional psoriasis treatments. A number of VEGF inhibitors are licensed for the treatment of malignancies and eye disease and isolated case reports suggest that some individuals with psoriasis may improve when exposed to these agents. The small number of cases and lack of unified reporting measures makes it difficult to draw generalizations and underline the heterogeneity of psoriasis as a disease entity. Though not yet licensed for the treatment of psoriasis in humans, experimental data supports the potential of VEGF inhibitors to influence relevant aspects of human cell biology (such as endothelial cell differentiation and to improve animal models of skin disease. Given the multi-factorial nature of psoriasis it is unlikely that VEGF inhibitors will be effective in all patients, however they have the potential to be a valuable addition to the therapeutic arsenal in selected cases. Current VEGF inhibitors in clinical use are associated with a number of potentially serious side effects including hypertension, left ventricular dysfunction, and gastrointestinal perforation. Such risks require careful consideration in psoriasis populations particularly in light of growing concerns linking psoriasis to increased

Na taj način dobijena je nova kategorija UbS, tzv. neosetljiva UbS, kod kojih je verovatnoća neželjenog aktiviranja pod dejstvom spoljnih impulsa svedena na minimum. Suština rešavanja ovog problema je primena eksplozivnih materija koje su mnogo manje osetljive na spoljne uticaje u odnosu na standardne. Osnovni zahtev koji se pri tome postavlja je da taktičko-tehničke karakteristike ostanu na nivou ili budu bolje u odnosu na postojeća UbS. U radu je ukratko objašnjen koncept razvoja neosetljivih UbS i dat pregled najznačajnijih rezultata istraživanja u oblasti eksplozivnih materija koje zadovoljavaju zahteve za primenu u neosetljivim UbS. / According to severe environment protection and safety requirements, tendencies in development of modern munitions, besides of increasing reliability and efficiency, are directed to decreasing of danger during their processing, storing, handling and operating. In that manner the new category of munitions has been obtained, named insensitive munitions, with a minimum probability of unplanned activating. The best method for solving this problem is using of explosive substances that are more insensitive according to standard ones. The main requirement is the tactical and technical characteristics stay at the level or to be better according to the existing munitions. In this paper the developing concept of insensitive munitions is shortly explained and presented a review of most important research results of explosive materials that fulfill requirements for applying in insensitive munitions.

    The majority of food in the United Kingdom is purchased in supermarkets, and therefore, supermarket interventions provide an opportunity to improve diets. Randomized controlled trials are costly, time-consuming, and difficult to conduct in real stores. Alternative approaches of assessing the impact of supermarket interventions on food purchases are needed, especially with respect to assessing differential impacts on population subgroups. The aim of this study was to assess the feasibility of using the United Kingdom Virtual Supermarket (UKVS), a three-dimensional (3D) computer simulation of a supermarket, to measure food purchasing behavior across income groups. Participants (primary household shoppers in the United Kingdom with computer access) were asked to conduct two shopping tasks using the UKVS and complete questionnaires on demographics, food purchasing habits, and feedback on the UKVS software. Data on recruitment method and rate, completion of study procedure, purchases, and feedback on usability were collected to inform future trial protocols. A total of 98 participants were recruited, and 46 (47%) fully completed the study procedure. Low-income participants were less likely to complete the study (P=.02). Most participants found the UKVS easy to use (38/46, 83%) and reported that UKVS purchases resembled their usual purchases (41/46, 89%). The UKVS is likely to be a useful tool to examine the effects of nutrition interventions using randomized controlled designs. Feedback was positive from participants who completed the study and did not differ by income group. However, retention was low and needs to be addressed in future studies. This study provides purchasing data to establish sample size requirements for full trials using the UKVS. ©Anja Mizdrak, Wilma Elzeline Waterlander, Mike Rayner, Peter Scarborough.

Bioetanol je postao atraktivno zamjensko biogorivo jer se proizvodi iz obnovljivih sirovina i ekološki je prihvatljiv. Upotrebljava se kao pogonsko gorivo i to kao hidrirani (96 % ili bezvodni (u mješavinama s benzinom. Bioetanol se proizvodi fermentacijom s kvascem S. cerevisiae ili nekim drugim mikroorganizmom iz ugljikohidrata kao što su jednostavni šećeri, škrob i celuloza. Nakon fermentacije, bioetanol se izdvaja i pročišćava destilacijom i dehidracijom. Sastav je propisan specifikacijama za primjenu u motornim gorivima. Uobičajeni usjevi, kao što su kukuruz, šećerna repa i trska, zasad su osnovne sirovine za proizvodnju bioetanola. Međutim, proizvodnja bioetanola iz ovih sirovina ne može zadovoljiti globalne potrebe za bioetanolom, zbog njihove primarne uloge u prehrani ljudi i životinja. Lignoceluloza je pogodna sirovina za proizvodnju bioetanola jer je široko rasprostranjena, obnovljiva i ne upotrebljava se u prehrani. Proizvodnja bioetanola iz lignoceluloznih sirovina je složen proces, koji se u mnogim aspektima razlikuje od proizvodnje iz šećernih ili škrobnih sirovina.

TGF-β plays an important role in tumorigenesis and contributes to the hallmarks of cancer, including tumor proliferation, invasion and metastasis, inflammation, angiogenesis, and escape of immune surveillance. There are several pharmacological approaches to block TGF-β signaling, such as monoclonal antibodies, vaccines, antisense oligonucleotides, and small molecule inhibitors. Galunisertib (LY2157299 monohydrate is an oral small molecule inhibitor of the TGF-β receptor I kinase that specifically downregulates the phosphorylation of SMAD2, abrogating activation of the canonical pathway. Furthermore, galunisertib has antitumor activity in tumor-bearing animal models such as breast, colon, lung cancers, and hepatocellular carcinoma. Continuous long-term exposure to galunisertib caused cardiac toxicities in animals requiring adoption of a pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic-based dosing strategy to allow further development. The use of such a pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic model defined a therapeutic window with an appropriate safety profile that enabled the clinical investigation of galunisertib. These efforts resulted in an intermittent dosing regimen (14 days on/14 days off, on a 28-day cycle of galunisertib for all ongoing trials. Galunisertib is being investigated either as monotherapy or in combination with standard antitumor regimens (including nivolumab

Compared to other popular methods, such as long-term reversible intrauterine devices, the use of hormonal implants as a family planning method has distinct advantages in terms of long-term efficiency and better user compliance and availability. This paper presents a study protocol to document and evaluate the efficacy, safety, and acceptability of Femplant (contraceptive implant in Pakistan during the first year of its use among married women of reproductive age (18–44 years at clinics in two provinces of Pakistan (Sindh and Punjab. Materials and methods: A total of 724 married women were enrolled in a noncomparative prospective observational study. The study involved six government clinics from the Population Welfare Department in Sindh Province and 13 clinics run by the Marie Stopes Society (a local nongovernmental organization in both provinces. The participation of women was subject to voluntary acceptance and medical eligibility. All respondents were interviewed at baseline and subsequently at each scheduled visit during the study period. Side effects, complications and adverse events, if any, were recorded for every participant at each visit to the facility. Discussion: Over the next 5-year period (2013–2018, 27 million hormonal implants will be made available in lower- to middle-income countries by international donors and agencies. The evidence generated from this study will identify factors affecting the acceptability and satisfaction of end

The paper further aims to identify the leaders’ vulnerability and strength at work in the current situation of shortage of manpower and other resources in the health care sector. This is seen through the lens of self-determination theory.Methods: Qualitative interviews were conducted with nine nursing leaders in nursing homes and home-care services, which, in part, capture the municipal health care service in a time of reform.Results: The nursing leaders are highly independent regarding their role as leaders. They act with strength and power in their position as superiors for their own staff, but they lack support and feel left alone by their leader, the municipal health director. The relation between the nursing leaders and their superiors is characterized by controlling structures and lack of autonomy support. As a consequence, the nursing leaders’ relations with subordinates and particularly peers, contribute to satisfy their needs for competence and relatedness, and, to some extent, autonomy. However, this cannot substitute for the lack of support from the superior level.Conclusion: The paper maintains a need to increase the consciousness of the value of horizontal support and interaction with peers and subordinates for the municipal nursing leader. Also, the need for increased focus on “the missing link” upward between the municipal health director and the

    Razdrobljenost intelektualnih horizontov pa je žal še veliko večja. Tudi znotraj same humanistike postaja drobljenje znanstvenega in raziskovalnega prostora na ozko specializirane stroke resna zavora v razvoju humanističnih ved. Ob vse večjem številu specializiranih, v pristopu teoretsko in diskurzivno strogo zamejenih znanstvenih publikacij, njihovih tvorcev in bralcev, je potrebno ponuditi več prostora za nove, interdisciplinarno zasnovane znanstvene revije. Ars & Humanitas hoče biti prav to – spodbuditi želi povezovanje družboslovnih in humanističnih strok, okrepiti dialog med različnimi teoretskimi orientacijami, odpirati izvirne pristope k obravnavi tem, opozarjati na aktualne vidike interferenc in skrbeti za promocijo humanistike tako v strokovnih krogih kot v širši javnosti. Zasnova revije je tridelna: v nosilnem tematskem bloku (študije bodo objavljene študije domačih in tujih strokovnjakov, ki bodo odražale različne pristope k izbrani temi, medtem ko bo odprti blok (varia namenjen prispevkom, ki so v določenem trenutku posebej aktualni ali ponujajo svež pogled na obravnavano temo. Tretji del bo namenjen recenzijam najnovejših in najaktualnejših znanstvenih publikacij s širšega humanistično družboslovnega področja. Posebno pozornost bo revija namenjala nacionalni in regionalni specifiki humanistike in družboslovja znotraj Evropske unije, pa tudi promociji nacionalnih kultur in umetnosti. Skladno s tem je eno od pomembnih poslanstev revije Ars & Humanitas krepitev zavesti o pomenu jezika v razvoju humanistike, saj jezik v humanističnih znanostih presega vlogo orodja sporočanja in je neločljivo povezan s samim razvojem humanističnih znanosti. Revija je zasnovana na večjezičnosti, posebno skrb pa bo posvečala slovenski humanistiki in razvoju strokovne terminologije v slovenskem jeziku.

U davnoj prošlosti, ku­canje srca bilo je znak dobrog zdravlja, međutim, za mene, najvažniju ulogu ima upravo prisustvo enzima... Mada ne obraćamo često pažnju na to, istorija enzimologije stara je koliko i sam ljudski rod i seže daleko u prošlost. CVaj rad posvećen je baš tim počecima u ovoj veoma zanimljivoj nauci, koja je u prošlosti ostavila traga na našim životima i koja će u budućnosti učiniti da život bude mnogo pro­duktivniji za čovečanstvo. Između čoveka i enzima postojao je oduvek jedan delikatan, suštinski važan odnos. Suočen s nepoznatom i neprijateljski nastrojenom prirodom punom grabljivaca, preistorijski čovek rano je otkrio lekovita svojstva biljaka, i to metodom probe i greške. Štaviše, slučajno su otkriveni inhibitori enzima, čime je, grubo rečeno, još tada otvorena nova oblast istraživanja. Oi biljni derivati koji su imali ulogu inhibitora enzima pomagali su preistorijskom čoveku u njegovoj borbi da opstane i zaštiti se od grabljiva­ca; prilikom lova i ribolova... Kasnije kroz istoriju, sa nepro- menjenom svrhom opstanka i poboljšanja kvaliteta života, enzimologija je iz korena transformisana, a metodologiju »probe i greške« iz praistorije zamenile su racionalne naučne teorije.

    Evropski in slovenski okvir – izkušnje niso tako vsaksebi, da ne bi prepoznali večnih in vesoljnih zakonov človekovega dejanja in nehanja. Vendar: ali se še kdaj spomnimo na Pudelbal Feliksa Antona Deva (1732–1786, kjer je prek pustnega, maškeradnega plesa na pahljačo vseh mogočih tipov prižebljal ljubljansko »purgarijo« v literarni ringaraja, tako da je začetno lahkotno šopirjenje izzvenelo v nelahkotni antitezi o sprenevedanju, večnem laganju in podobnih značajskih odličnostih. Obolos baročnemu času je jezikovno bogastvo, kopičenje satirično-parodičnih oznak, ki jih je Dev nalepil paradirajočim osebkom na odru, iz katerih dehti moralna sprijenost. To je satira o malih dušah. In še brezkončni izvir, namreč briljantno pletenje Ivana Cankarja in mnogoobraznih satiričnih motivov, v dobršni meri izvirajočih iz politične odvisnosti in narodno-zavedne neurejenosti, tako da je v resnici »kostanj posebne sorte«, ki so se mu v različnih tonalitetah pridružila najboljša peresa prve polovice 20. stoletja. Cankarjevo satiropisje je veljalo »zlasti farizeju, hlapcu, dogmatiku, renegatu,« pravi Franc Zadravec, »maske snema z vsakršnih duhovnih in moralnih spak nekdanjih in sedanjih časov.«7 Satirik je po definiciji svojega početja brezkompromisni opazovalec človekovih dejanj. Izhodišče za tematske prispevke v tej številki Ars et humanitas je dalo polju satire, satiričnega, satirikov itd. odprte poti. Kakršno koli je že naše vsakdanje delo, vsi smo se s temi temami srečavali v raznih konceptualnih in oblikovnih izrazih in pri razrešitvi vprašanja največkrat ni zadoščal pogled samo ene stroke. To povezovanje disciplin je temeljna lastnost te revije, ki goji načelo medkulturnih in interdisciplinarnih perspektiv, zato so bili prispevki dolžni spoštovati le nosilno besedo »satira«.

For years, tissue engineering approaches have been seeking a stable, axially vascularized transplantable bone replacement suitable for transplantation into the recipient bed with pre-existing insufficient conditions. For this reason, the arteriovenous loop model was developed and various bone substitutes have been vascularized. However, it has not been possible thus far to engineer a primary stable and axially vascularized transplantable bone substitute. For that purpose, a primary stable silica-embedded nanohydroxyapatite (HA bone substitute in combination with blood, bone marrow, expanded, or directly retransplanted mesenchymal stem cells, recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein 2 (rhBMP-2, and different carrier materials (fibrin, cell culture medium, autologous serum was tested subcutaneously for 4 or 12 weeks in the sheep model. Autologous serum lead to an early matrix change during degradation of the bone substitute and formation of new bone tissue. The best results were achieved in the group combining mesenchymal stem cells expanded with 60 µg/mL rhBMP-2 in autologous serum. Better ingrowth of fibrovascular tissue could be detected in the autologous serum group compared with the control (fibrin.

    Full Text Available Avtorici preučujeta metodo življenjske zgodbe in njeno uporabnost za ugotavljanje izobraževalnih potreb in zanimanj generacij mlajših odraslih in generacij starejših odraslih. Preučujeta njihove generacijske značilnosti, ki se lahko kažejo bodisi v podobnosti bodisi v različnosti članov neke generacije do drugih. Ugotovljene potrebe in zanimanja, utemeljene na generacijskih značilnostih, je mogoče, takšno je spoznanje avtoric, uporabiti kot podlago za oblikovanje vsebine medgeneracijskih izobraževalnih programov. Mladost je čas vstopa v odraslost, čas prevzemanja socialnih vlog odraslih, značilnost današnjih mladih generacij pa je, da v odraslost vstopajo drugače; mladi so prepuščeni individualizmu, močno odvisni od svojega referenčnega okvira, nekatere dejavnosti, nekoč značilne za odrasle, so se premaknile v čas mladosti, druge spet daleč v prihodnost. Anja Šajn in Dušana Findeisen obravnavata tudi značilnosti oseb v poznejših letih življenja, njihovo prehojeno življenjsko pot ter dogodke na tej poti. Na podlagi teorije življenjskega kroga avtorici označita življenje kot potovanje od rojstva do smrti. Osebne izkušnje, kultura, pomembni osebni in družbeni dogodki, način, kako smo izkusili te dogodke, vse to nas posameznike in posamezne generacije naredi drugačne od drugih ljudi in drugih generacij. Medgeneracijsko učenje in izobraževanje lahko prispevata (ni pa nujno, da je tako k medsebojnemu poznavanju in priznavanju generacij in posledično k družbeni trdnosti. Temeljita na potrebah in zanimanjih generacij in lahko krepita vezi med generacijami, kajti družbene vezi se danes rahljajo do takšne mere, da se vse bolj oglaša potreba celo po novi družbeni pogodbi. Primarni cilj medgeneracijskega učenja ni učenje o neki temi, nekem vprašanju, je predvsem učenje o odnosih – sredi odnosov – in je učenje za skupnost, skupnost generacij, ugotavljata avtorici.

In addition, the importance of known non-pharmacologic reasons for nonadherence is unclear.Methods: We performed a cross-sectional, noninterventional, multicenter study to identify current reasons for nonadherence. Patients were categorized by physicians into the following adherence groups: good, unstable, or poor adherence. Co-variables of interest included age, sex, time since HIV diagnosis, ART duration, current ART regimen, HIV transmission route, comorbidity, HIV-1 RNA viral load (VL, and CD4 cell count. Patients self-reported the number of missed doses and provided their specific reasons for nonadherent behavior.

Na vrhunski šport se navezujejo številne druge, manj spektakularne dejavnosti, od rekreacijskega športa do različnih načinov skrbi za zdravje in predvsem za privlačen videz telesa (in po fiziognomičnem sklepanju tudi duše in duha, ki jih vrhunski šport, zlasti njegove zvezde, promovirajo, reklamirajo in prodajajo kot športni oziroma zdrav način življenja. Ko bi se omejili samo na doping, bi hitro ugotovili, da je uporaba prepovedanih in zdravju nevarnih sredstev za hitro in učinkovito oblikovanje telesa in spodbujanje njegove učinkovitosti mnogo bolj razširjena na primer med mladimi v obdobju odraščanja kot med vrhunskimi športniki, ki so zdaj že nekaj let pod učinkovitim in vsestranskim nadzorom. O tem, ali ima šport kak lasten in izviren, celo človeško bistven pomen in vlogo, lahko kaj pove filozofija športa, disciplina, ki je precej mlajša od pedagogike športa – verjetno najstarejše humanistične discipline o športu, pa tudi od psihologije in sociologije športa. Kot disciplina se je razmahnila šele v šestdesetih letih prejšnjega stoletja, zato je šlo sprva zlasti za ukvarjanje z definicijo športa in dokazovanje filozofske pomembnosti športa. Pri prvem je bila seveda vodilna anglosaška analitična filozofija športa, pri drugem pa je največ izhodišč ponujala in še ponuja fenomenološka smer v filozofiji. Razlikovanje med igro, ki je imela v filozofiji vsaj od Friedricha Schillerja dalje svoje vidno mesto, in tekmo (če angleška play in game tako prevedemo, je tu ključnega pomena, saj pojmovanja o tem, kaj je šport, po eni strani ožijo območje pojma na tekmovalne igre, ki potekajo po splošno sprejetih pravilih in pod okriljem ustreznih športnih institucij, po drugi strani pa ga širijo daleč prek zgolj tekmovalnega športa na vse igrive dejavnosti, pri katerih gre za telesno gibanje, ne glede na

Pripadnici naših oružanih snaga, a posebno RV i PVO, od iskusnih ruskih pilota, uče nove lekcije o upotrebi savremenih aviona. Razvoj vojne opreme u svetu, naoružanja i druge tehnike zahteva nova shvatanja odbrane zemlje a zaostajanje se može sprečiti osavremenjavanjem naših oružanih snaga, kao i uvežbavanjem pripadnika Vojske Srbije u novim taktičkim postupcima i pripremanjem za eventualne nove forme suprotstavljanja agresiji. Uz međunarodnu saradnju i sticanje novih iskustava naša vojska osposobljena za učešće u multinacionalnim vojnim snagama. Vežba srpskih i ruskih pilota BARS 2016, nametnula se kao osnovni zadatak nakon nabavke dva aviona MIG-29 i helikoptera MI-17. Ne samo radi upoznavanja letnih i borbenih osobenosti tih letelica, već i radi ovladavanja taktičkom upotrebom u složenim borbenim dejstvima. Nesumnjivo je da ruski piloti poseduju veoma dragoceno iskustvo u presretačkim dejstvima sa letelicom MIG-29, kao i u vazdušnoj borbi. Ovaj avion ima izuzetne letne mogućnosti i pod veštom pilotskom rukom može da izvede veoma složene manevre kojima se ostvaruje prevlast u vazdušnom prostoru i pobeda u vazdušnoj bici. Zbog toga se vežba ruskih i srpskih pilota BARS 2016 može posmatrati, a valja je prvenstveno i razumeti kao značajan napredak u ovladavanju osnovnim savremenim borbenim postupcima u obezbeđivanju vlastitog vazdušnog prostora, kontrole i suprotstavljanju agresivnim dejstvima eventualnog protivnika. Uz to, ovo je bila izvanredna prilika da se naši pripadnici RV i PVO obučavaju za spašavanje oborenih pilota. Vežba „Slovensko bratstvo 2016”, koja je usledila nakon zajedničkog uvežbavanja pilota Rusije i Srbije, doprinela je vojno-taktičkom osposobljavanju pripadnika Vojske Srbije za efikasno delovanje u protiv-terorističkoj borbi. Na toj vežbi učestvovali su pripadnici ruskih i beloruskih specijalnih snaga, kao i

Математическая модель, описанная в данной работе основана на полной зависимости скорости процесса десорбции и энергии активации от температуры. Данная модель также отражает последовательность этапов процесса десорбции. Настоящая модель кинетики процесса десорбции этанола может значительно улучшить технологию производства биоэтанола и уменьшить производственные затраты. / U ovom radu proučavana je kinetika desorpcije etanola prethodno adsorbovanog na ugljeničnom molekulskom situ CMS-3A. Glavni izvori bioetanola su fermentabilni šećeri, kukuruz i lignocelulozni otpadni materijal. Proizvedeni bioetanol sadrži određenu količinu vode, a da bi se prečistio koriste se razne separacione metode koje još nisu dovoljno ispitane. Glavni problem pri prečišćavanju bioetanola je visoka cena, kao i znatan utrošak energije koji predstavlja više od 50% energije koju bioetanol proizvodi. Selektivna adsorpcija etanola sa zeolita znatno smanjuje utrošak energije pri proizvodnji. Nažalost, ova metoda je veoma spora. Radi poboljšanja kinetike desorpcije koriste se različite tehnike, koje nisu dovoljno ispitane. Jednu od praktičnijih i jeftinijih metoda koja se koristi pri prečišćavanju bioetanola predstavlja desorpcija etanola sa ugljeničnog molekulskog sita, pri čemu voda ostaje zadržana na ugljeničnom molekulskom situ. Međutim, ova metoda nije dovoljno ispitana, a radi poboljšanja proizvodnje (brzine proizvodnje potrebno je poznavati kinetiku desorpcije etanola sa zeolita . Malo je naučnih radova i literature koji

    Full Text Available Hidraulični sistemi mobilnih mašina su često kontaminirani čvrstim česticama. Čvrste čestice povećavaju intenzitet abrazivnog habanja hidrauličnih komponenata, i čine jednim od glavnih uzročnika otkaza sistema. U radu je dat prikaz reprezentativnog primera uticaja čvrstih čestica na povećano habanje delova hidrauličnog čekića bagera u eksploatacionim uslovima bagera u cementnoj industriji. Uvod Kontaminacija radnog fluida hidrauličnog sistema, jedan je od najvećih neprijatelja mobilnih mašina. Na mobilnim mašinama, koje se obično koriste u kontaminiranoj sredini, potrebno je pravilnim projektovanjem zaštititi hidraulični sistem posebno od eksterne kontaminacije. Uticaj kontaminanata na rad i pouzdanost hidrauličnih komponenata, a time i hidrauličnih sistema, može značajno da smanji planirani eksploatacioni vek. U radu je dat prikaz uticaja kontaminacije radnog fluida hidrauličnog sistema bagera preko radnog dela, hidrauličnog čekića. Uočeno je da zbog loše konstrukcije čekića i nepravilnog izbora povratnog filtera u hidrauličnom sistemu bagera,  u toku rada dolazi do prodora kontaminanata u vidu čvrstih čestica koje dovode do povećanja habanja radnih delova hidrauličnih komponenata (prvenstveno pogonske hidraulične pumpe kao i radnih delova hidrauličnog čekića. Da bi se shvatio uticaj kontaminacije hidrauličnog ulja čvrstim česticama, u radu je priložena foto-dokumentacija kritičnih delova pojedinih komponenti koje su oštećene. Takođe, izvršena je ekonomska analiza koja ukazuje na potrebu da se na mobilnim mašinama izvrši adekvatno filtriranje hidrauličnog fluida. Opis rada hidrauličnog sistema čekića Dat je opis jednog radnog ciklusa hidrauličnog čekića. Radni proces izazivanja udaraca čekićem zahteva kontinualno ponavljanje prethodno opisanog ciklusa. Iz navedenog se vidi da je rad hidrauličnog čekića veoma dinamičan ciklus kretanja određenih delova čekića, koji da bi

Поэтому рециклирование оксида иттрия из вторичных ресурсов, таких как: красный шлам, покрытие для керамики и использованные материалы в производстве люминесцентных ламп имеет большое значение. Основной целью данной работы является изучение кинетики растворения иттрия с соляной кислотой из отходной керамической пыли. / Itrijum je srebrnasti prelazni metal sa hemijskim svojstvima sličnim lantanoidima. Zbog ovih sličnosti itrijum pripada elementima retkih zemalja. Itrijum i itrijumoksid koriste se u fluoroscentnim lampama, u proizvodnji elektroda, u elektronskim filterima, superprovodnicima i kao dodatak u različitim materijalima radi poboljšanja njihove stabilnosti. Veliki deo itrijuma dobijen je iz njegovih minerala kao što su monazit [(Ce,La,Th,Nd,YPO4] i ksenotim YPO4, Prisustvo radioaktivnih elemenata torijuma i urana, zajedno sa itrijumom, predstavlja teškoću u dobijanju itrijumoksida iz ruda i koncentrata. Regulisanje zaštite životne sredine je sve strože i povećava rizik u njihovom snabdevanju. Zbog svega toga recikliranje itrijumoksida iz sekundarnih izvora, kao što su crveni mulj, prevlake u keramici i istrošeni materijali u fluoroscentnim lampama, ima veliki značaj. Osnovni cilj ovog rada jeste da prouči kinetiku rastvaranja itrijuma sa hlorovodoničnom kiselinom iz otpadnog praha keramičkih materijala.

Uznemirujuća je činjenica da teroristi mogu da dođu u posed oružja za masovno uništenje, a cilj rada je analiza verovatnoće CBRN terorističkih akcija gde je istaknuta sve veća zabrinutost i sve veći znaci konvergencije između terorizma i nekonvencionalnih CBRN oružja u terorističke svrhe. Terorizam danas uključuje tehnologije dostupne svakome, bilo gde i kada, raspoređene kroz inovativna rešenja, gde je neophodno takođe razumeti kompleksnu interakciju između dinamike ponašanja terorističkih grupa i odluka u vezi sa starim i novim tehnologijama. Perspektivu upotrebe CBRN terorizma potvrdile su mnoge države kao akutni bezbednosni izazov koji iziskuje efikasan i brz odgovor i reakciju. U radu će, takođe, biti rasvetljen odnos između terorističkih grupa i nekonvencionalnih oružja, kao i teškoće u identifikaciji faktora koji mogu izazvati njegovu eskalaciju.

    der Ausgabe 1/2013 wird dabei im Sinne der ersten dieser Fragen von Anja Klimsa eröffnet, die den Problembereich der Prävention in der Medienpädagogik vor Augen führt und dabei mit allem Nachdruck betont, dass heute nicht mehr der zu normierende, zu kontrollierende und mit Mängeln belastete Mensch im Mittelpunkt der Pädagogik steht, sondern die aktiven, emanzipierten und mündigen KompetenzträgerInnen. Angesichts der Unverbindlichkeit von Normenstandards hebt Klimsa so hervor, dass in der Trias von technologischer, normativer und handlungsorientierter Medienpädagogik einzig die letztere Möglichkeiten bietet, den Anforderungen der Medienprävention zu genügen. Denn nur jene medienpädagogischen Angebote, die im Sinne eines praxeologischen Empowerments die Teilnehmenden als bewusst handelnde AkteurInnen begreifen, die selbst ihren Raum gestalten, ihre Ziele setzen und ihre eigenen Handlungen auch bewerten, lassen sich als sinnvolle präventive Medienpädagogik umsetzen. Damit rücken die RezipientInnen – auch im Unterrichtsraum – ins Zentrum von Theorie und Praxis und können so im Sinne aktiver und partizipativer Medienarbeit eingebunden werden. Inwiefern mithin die handlungsorientierte Medienpädagogik jenseits der normativen Medienpädagogik zu einer didaktischen Norm werden könnte, bleibt zu diskutieren.Norm Friesen untersucht dann in seinem Beitrag unterschiedliche Normierungen und Modellierungen der Sozial- und Kulturtechniken des Sprechens und Schreibens bzw. der Sprache und der Schrift, die (historisch vor allem in zwei Paradigmen erschienen sind: im rationalistischen (universalistischen und schriftzentrierten Modell, dass von Descartes bis Chomsky wirksam war und ist, und im romantischen (am Ausdruck und dem Sprechen orientierten Modell, dass wir vor allem mit Rousseau verbinden.

Zahvaljujući sve široj upotrebi savremenih informacionih tehnologija, tradicionalni obrazovni sistem suočava se sa velikim promenama. Jedna od njih je i razvoj ozbiljnih igara koje simuliraju rad realnih poslovnih okruženja. Tradicionalni, pasivni pristup obrazovanju obučava nas za neke uske procedure, a zatim vrši evaluaciju na osnovu našeg sećanja na ono što nam je rečeno. Čak i kada smo uspešno savladali činjenice i procedure, naše ponašanje u pravim životnim situacijama ostaje neprovereno. Igre pokušavaju da reše problem, motivišu i promovišu učenje. Njihov interaktivni aspekt dovodi do visoke uključenosti samih učesnika u aktivnosti igre, pa one više nemaju svrhu isključivo zabave već postaju ozbiljan alat za učenje. Od klasičnih zabavnih igara odvaja ih prvenstveno drugačiji cilj, tj. mogućnost da se učesniku igre, pored zabave, pruži i edukativna komponenta. Takođe, učesnik nije pasivni igrač već svojim odlukama i postupcima direktno može uticati na tok igre, dovodeći do dobrih ili loših rezultata.
