Bakalaura darbs ir veltīts divu kukuļņemšanas kvalificējošo pazīmju – kukuļa pieprasīšanas un kukuļa izspiešanas – izpētei un analīzei. Darba gaitā autors secina, ka praksē kriminālprocesa ietvaros ne vienmēr tiek visaptveroši analizēts jautājums, vai darbība, par kuru dots kukulis, bija likumīga vai nelikumīga, un vai valsts amatpersona apdraudēja personas likumīgās intereses vai nē, kas var novest pie kļūdainas noziedzīga nodarījuma kvalifikācijas.

Normal growth and development should be achieved in cystic fibrosis, and nutritional counseling is paramount at all ages. Prevention and early detection of growth failure is the key to successful nutritional intervention. The advance in nutritional management is certainly one factor that has contributed to the improved survival in recent decades. This review outlines the major nutritional parameters in the management of the patient with cystic fibrosis, including recent advances in pancreatic enzyme replacement therapy and fat-soluble vitamin therapy. There are sections on complicated clinical situations which directly affect nutrition, for example, before and after lung transplantation, cystic fibrosis-related diabetes, and bone health.Keywords: cystic fibrosis, nutrition, fat-soluble vitamins, pancreatic enzymes

Objective: To find out the social class difference in relation to frequency of HBsAg and hepatocellular carcinoma in our population. Design: An analytical study. Place and Duration of Study: This study was conducted in Oncology Department, Services Hospital, Lahore from December 1997 to December 2000. Subjects and Methods: The HBsAg positive voluntary and apparently healthy blood donors were grouped into three, based on monthly income. Lower socioeconomic group and had monthly income less than 3,000 Pakistani rupees, middle socioeconomic group had monthly income between 3,000-10,000 rupees and upper socioeconomic group had income of more than 10,000 Pakistani rupees. On the same pattern patients suffering from hepatocellular carcinoma coming for treatment were also grouped. During this period, 1000 blood donors were screened for HBsAg and 95 biopsy proven liver cancer by causes were treated. Medical and demographic data of all subjects were recorded. HBsAg test was performed immuno-chromatographic technique using Daina Screen HBsAg kit manufactured by Dainabot Co. Ltd, Tokyo, Japan. Results: Patients from lower and middle social class had higher percentage (80% and 75%) of hepatocellular carcinoma as compared to higher social class (66.6%). In the healthy asymptomatic blood donors lower social class had higher (13.76%) HBsAg positively as compared to middle social class (11.25%) and higher social class (8.06%). Conclusion: Preventive measures should be taken in identifying and reducing factors predisposing high frequency of these conditions. (author)
Full Text Available Peter Meinke, Alexandr A Makarov, Phú Lê Thành, Daina Sadurska, Eric C SchirmerWellcome Trust Centre for Cell Biology and Institute of Cell Biology, University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, UKAbstract: It is a common misconception to view the "cyto"-skeleton as just the filament systems in the "cyto"-plasm. In fact, the cytoskeleton extends into the nucleus where the complex network connects to chromatin, and it also connects through the plasma membrane to the cytoskeleton of adjacent cells and to the "exo"-skeleton of the extracellular matrix. This review will focus principally on the subcomplex of the cytoskeleton associated with the nucleus, often referred to as the nucleoskeleton, but in the context of its extensive interconnectivity with the rest of the nucleus and with cytoplasmic filament systems all the way to the exoskeleton. The nucleoskeleton, made principally of type-V intermediate filament lamins, connects across the double membrane system of the nuclear envelope to likely all three primary cytoplasmic filament systems. It provides structural stability to the nucleus, and also incredible flexibility. In both its core structural aspect and through specificity gained by tissue-specific partner proteins, it contributes to genome organization and regulation as well as to signal transduction, both through chemical signaling cascades and likely through mechanotransduction. Defects in the nucleoskeleton have far-ranging effects due to its interactions with cytoplasmic filament systems, from mispositioning of nuclei to disruption of cell polarity and both decreased and increased cell migration depending on the defect. Accordingly, it is not surprising that many nucleoskeletal components are linked to a wide range of human diseases from specific types of cancer to muscular dystrophies, neuropathies, dermopathies, and premature aging syndromes.Keywords: nuclear envelope, lamin, LINC complex, cytoskeleton, nuclear envelopathies

Full Text Available SOME PROBLEMS OF THE FORMATION PROCESS OF THE LATVIAN LITERARY LANGUAGESummary0. Literary language is the most complete variety of language, manifesting its functions in the best way possible and unifying the nation, as well as representing national mentality among other nations and their languages.0.1. When speaking about the Latvian literary language and its formation, it seems useful to acknowledge that the literary language is (1 the language of the entire nation, (2 is being consciously cultivated and (3 has written form.0.2. When dealing with the Latvian literary language formation processes, one should take into consideration (a the specific external (sociopolitical conditions, (b the sources of the literary language, (c aspects of language development and its research.1. Development of the Latvian language has been affected by external sociopolitical factors and factors of migration of representatives of various cultural layers; these factors have both stimulated and hampered the overall formation of the language both in space and time.2. Research of the Latvian literary language is complicated, because the most reliable proofs of this process are written texts, which in Latvian appeared only in the 16th century. Therefore both folk-lore and the spoken language can be used as sources.2.1. From the 16th to the 19th century written texts were mainly produced by German clergymen who in the beginning (in the 16th century had a poor knowledge of Latvian. Therefore these texts must be properly handled by differentiating the sociopolitical and philological activities of the Germans. Beginning with the 17th century a normative approach has been consciously applied to the language and thus a common variety of the language is being created by maximally keeping aloof of various patois forms.2.2. The source of analysis of the literary language and the process of its formation is the abundant Latvian folk-lore and especially the folk-songs (dainas
