Full Text Available In this paper I address nationalist iconography in Serbian popular music especially the role of women as the symbols of nation building. Case in point is the victory of Serbian representative Marija Serifovic in Eurovision Song Contest in 2007. I analyze the way power struggle and strategic use of the differences are embodied and embedded through a media figure of Marija Serifovic in the process of showing the 'new face of Serbia'.

Full Text Available Since the first annual Eurovision Song Contest in 1956, politics and popularity have intersected to influence the ways in which Eurovision songs have reflected the complex forms of European nationalism. With the Eurovision victory of Marija Šerifović’s ′Molitva′ at the 52nd Eurovision in Helsinki the politics of regionalism and nationalism fully enveloped Southeastern Europe, creating the impression that old and new European alignments, from Habsburg nostalgia to an emerging Balkan brotherhood, overwhelmed the criteria that would otherwise mean that the grand prix would go to the best song. Taking Marija Šerifović’s ′Molitva′ 2007 as a point of departure, this article examines the extremely complex set of networks that intersect at the Eurovision Song Contest and the national rituals and competitions that transform the power and pleasure driving European popular song in the twenty-first century.
This paper wishes to excavate the long-forgotten and dormant vampires that once used to frighten the living daylights out of people from Eastern and Central Serbia, so as to explain who they were/are as well as how they operated within their respective societies.

Full Text Available Victimological dimension of new criminality forms is a specific challenge for contemporary criminal law systems; new time brings new forms of criminality, new victims, but also new ways and opportunities for more efficient protection of victims. At the same time with review and improvement of existing standards of victims` protection, contemporary criminality control systems show strong tendency toward compromising the general position of the victim. Victim’s interests are being instrumentalized because of the justification of changes in criminality control in the direction of significant strengthening of criminal law repression. The crime which is emotionalized with the affective media presentation of the victim justifies stricter penal policy and provides the populist support for repressive criminality control strategies and criminal law expansionism. The aim of the paper is the analysis of the mechanisms of victim “use“ in contemporary criminality control and the examination of its consequences, with special review on domestic circumstances through analysis of the Code on special measures for prevention of crimes against sexual freedom towards juveniles (Marija`s Code.

Full Text Available Different kinds of pragmatic expressions in spoken discourse, like discourse markers, interjections, topic orientation markers, pragmatic deictics, general extenders, etc., have attracted the attentions of researchers over recent decades. However, expressions that have their origins within religions have not as yet been studied from the pragmatic perspective, even though in everyday conversation they are used in non-religious contexts and content-free manners more often than within religious context. The presented study is based on the GOS, Slovenian reference speech corpus, and covers the more common Christian expressions used in the corpus data. These are: bog “God”, bože “God”, marija “Mary”, madona “Madonna”, jezus “Jesus”, hudič “Devil”, vrag “Devil”. This study tries to highlight those contexts they are used in, and the pragmatic functions they perform.
Full Text Available Marija Maga Magazinovic (Užice,1882- Belgrade, 1968, a choreographer, dancer, modern dance theorist, philosopher, feminist, librarian and journalist, was the founder of modern dance in Serbia. In her efforts to introduce modern dance, Magazinovic demanded emancipation of art, “pure” dance, a beauty of simple movements, which had no need for story, scenography, costume, even music, nothing but naked dancer’s body. Maga, who graduated philosophy at the Belgrade University in 1904, and was a journalist by vocation, working as the first woman journalist in the daily newspaper “Politica” as a columnist, also fought for women’s rights and emancipation. By bringing modern artistic view into the patriarchal Serbian society, she contributed to the social and cultural development, and to the understanding and adopting of the modern dance at the very time when it was developed and brought on stage in the West. Stemmed from the schools of Max Reinhardt and ballet school of Isadora Duncan, she brought their views and pedagogical methods to Serbia when she returned from Berlin and Munich to Belgrade, where she opened the first school of modern dance in 1910. She was the first to advocate for the necessity of female education, particularly of engaging girls in doing rhythmic gymnastics and dance as a form of bodily and spiritual education. Given that Marija Maga Magazinovic was the first who opened the door for the progress and changes in the fields of dance and women’s rights by bringing concepts of those movements, in which she directly participated, to Serbia, these concepts had to be explained. Therefore, the main goal of the paper is to examine these concepts, such as modern dance, rhythmic gymnastic, body culture, Ausdruckstanz, expressionism, and women emancipation, which is crucial if we want to understand early period of modern dance development, and to understand Magazinovic’s efforts and achievements and her place and historical
Full Text Available This article examines the voting results and Western European media coverage of the 2007 and 2014 Eurovision Song Contests. The Austrian drag act Conchita Wurst (the alter ego of an openly gay man won in 2014, whilst Serbian entrant Marija Šerifović, portrayed in Western European media as lesbian at the time, won in 2007. We first explore the extent to which there was an East-West voting divide in both contests. In 2014, while there was some elite hostility against Conchita in Eastern Europe, the popular support was on a similar level to that in Western Europe. In 2007, we find no significant geographic divide in support for Šerifović. However, when we examine mainstream UK and German media coverage during and after both contests, we find strong anti-Eastern European discourses that are at odds with the similarity in the public voting. We employ the concept of homonationalism to interrogate inconsistent Western media discourses: the East was depicted as a site of homophobia and the West as a site of tolerance in 2014, whilst the queer aesthetic / identity of Šerifović was largely overlooked in 2007.
Full Text Available Bojana Perovic, Marija Jovanovic, Branislava Miljkovic, Sandra VezmarDepartment of Pharmacokinetics, Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Belgrade, SerbiaAbstract: Major depressive disorder (MDD is a common and serious illness of our times, associated with monoamine deficiency in the brain. Moreover, increased levels of cortisol, possibly caused by stress, may be related to depression. In the treatment of MDD, the use of older antidepressants such as monoamine oxidase inhibitors and tricyclic antidepressants is decreasing rapidly, mainly due to their adverse effect profiles. In contrast, the use of serotonin reuptake inhibitors and newer antidepressants, which have dual modes of action such as inhibition of the serotonin and noradrenaline or dopamine reuptake, is increasing. Novel antidepressants have additive modes of action such as agomelatine, a potent agonist of melatonin receptors. Drugs in development for treatment of MDD include triple reuptake inhibitors, dual-acting serotonin reuptake inhibitors and histamine antagonists, and many more. Newer antidepressants have similar efficacy and in general good tolerability profiles. Nevertheless, compliance with treatment for MDD is poor and may contribute to treatment failure. Despite the broad spectrum of available antidepressants, there are still at least 30% of depressive patients who do not benefit from treatment. Therefore, new approaches in drug development are necessary and, according to current research developments, the future of antidepressant treatment may be promising.Keywords: major depressive disorders, monoamine deficiency, antidepressants, depression
Full Text Available Mitochondria are the power houses of the cell, but unlike the static structures portrayed in textbooks, they are dynamic organelles that move about the cell to deliver energy to locations in need. These organelles fuse with each other then split apart; some appear anchored and others more free to move around, and when damaged they are engulfed by autophagosomes. Together, these processes-mitochondrial trafficking, fusion and fission, and mitophagy-are best described by the term "mitochondrial dynamics". The molecular machineries behind these events are relatively well known yet the precise dynamics in neurons remains under debate. Neurons pose a peculiar logistical challenge to mitochondria; how do these energy suppliers manage to traffic down long axons to deliver the requisite energy supply to distant parts of the cell? To date, the majority of neuronal mitochondrial dynamics studies have used cultured neurons, Drosophila larvae, zebrafish embryos, with occasional experiments in resting mouse nerves. However, a new study in this issue of PLOS Biology from Marija Sajic and colleagues provides an in vivo look at mitochondrial dynamics along resting and electrically active neurons of live anaesthetized mice.
Full Text Available Deep marine Miocene deposits exposed sporadically in the Medvednica Mt. (northern Croatia comprise pelagic organisms such as coccolithophores, planktic foraminifera and pteropods. The pteropod fauna from yellow marls at the Vejalnica locality (central part of Medvednica Mt. encompasses abundant specimens of Vaginella austriaca Kittl, 1886, accompanied with scarce Clio fallauxi (Kittl, 1886. Calcareous nannoplankton points to the presence of NN5 nannozone at this locality. Highly fossiliferous grey marls at the Marija Bistrica locality (north-eastern area of Medvednica Mt. comprise limacinid pteropods: Limacina valvatina (Reuss, 1867, L. gramensis (Rasmussen, 1968 and Limacina sp. Late Badenian (NN5 to NN6 nannozone age of these marls is presumed on the basis of coccolithophores. Most of the determined pteropods on species level, except V. austriaca have been found and described from this region for the first time. New pteropod records from Croatia point to two pteropod horizons coinciding with the Badenian marine transgressions in Central Paratethys. These pteropod assemblages confirm the existence of W–E marine connection (“Transtethyan Trench Corridor” during the Badenian NN5 nannozone. Limacinids point to the possible immigration of the “North Sea fauna” through a northern European marine passage during the Late Badenian (end of NN5-beginning of NN6 zone, as previously presumed by some other authors.
Full Text Available Law historian, ethnographer and collectioner, Baltazar Bogišić(1834-1908, renowned and celebrated in his lifetime, has remained so well after his death. Although he did give certain thought to the future of his library and collection, he failed to provide a clear definition of their fate upon his death. Marija Bo-gišić-Pohl (1837-1920, his sister and sole heir, gathered able men of confiden-ce to help her create a concept of lasting tribute to Bogišić’s heritage and place. Among them were Đuro Bijelić, Vlaho Bukovac, Frano Kulišić, Antun Vuče-tićand Antun Bratić, who in a fairly short period of six years (1908-1914 came up with a result. With their ceaseless council and selfless support, the role of Đuro Bijelićand Vlaho Bukovac should be particularly emphasised. Marija Bogišić-Pohl erected a majestic tomb for her brother at the Cavtat cemetery, which in terms of style and concept falls among the most significant examples of historicistic tomb sculpture in Dubrovnik and its surrounds. She funded the activity of the “Dub” civil society in designing the city park in Dubrovnik, which was named after Bogišić. Hitherto unknown is a curious detail concer-ning the design of the park fountain for which the famous sculptor Ivan Me-štrović(1883-1962 was to be commissioned. From the inherited financial funds she helped the renovation of the Franciscan church of Our Lady of Snow and the parish church of St Nicholas in Cavtat, as well as the construction of the modern local water supply. She supported the initiative of the citizens of Cavtat and Dubrovnik to erect a public monument in honour of Bogišićat the Cavtat waterfront, for the purpose of which, with her consent, one of the Bogišić properties was pulled down in order to create an open space at the entrance to Cavtat. Vlaho Bukovac was in charge of this project for which he commissio-ned the young sculptor Petar Pallavicini (1886-1958. This stone monument soon became, and

The goal of this paper is to stress the significance of performing an economic analysis of the investment.Methods: This paper combines statistical analysis methods such as correlation and regression analysis, methods of economic analysis, and scenario method.Results: The economic analysis of investing in human resources for home care service in Serbia showed that the both scenarios of investing in either additional home care hours or more beneficiaries are cost-efficient. However, the optimal solution with the positive (and the highest value of economic net present value criterion is to invest in human resources to boost the number of home care hours from 6 to 8 hours per week and increase the number of the beneficiaries to 33%.Conclusion: This paper shows how the statistical and economic analysis results can be used to evaluate different scenarios and enable quality decision-making based on exact data in order to improve health and quality of life of the elderly and spend funds in a rational manner.

Subjects and methods: This study recruited 193 Malaysian medical students enrolled in year one and year two studies. A principal-component analysis with Varimax rotation was conducted. Procrustes rotation was used to confirm the item to model fit, which allows for a comparison of actual structure against an ideal hypothesized structure. Items were systematically removed based on low communalities of < 0.3 and poor loading of items onto components. Results: A two-component solution was found, comprised of “perspective taking” and “compassionate care”. Following item removal, eleven items remained. A Procrustes analysis revealed that this eleven-item measure demonstrated an excellent model fit. A possible third component was identified, though is not recommended for use, due to construct underrepresentation. Conclusion: This study found the Jefferson Scale of Physician Empathy fitted best to a two-component model using eleven items. Item, component, and overall congruence were very high, and scale reliabilities were adequate. The results of this study suggest that the eleven-item, two-component solution demonstrates excellent psychometric properties and structural validity in a Malaysian medical student population. Future research could consider using the short eleven-item measure in both student and health care profession samples to investigate the role of empathy in health care.

Comments on Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics (CAMOP) endeavors periodically to devote an issue to the life and accomplishments of physicists who have made significant contributions to the fields represented in this journal. Vladilen Letokhov is certainly one of them. For a number of years he was also a CAMOP Correspondent. We are grateful to Professor Victor Balykin for having organized this CAMOP special section. It is particularly significant to one of us (HHS) to remember a person who has made seminal advances in so many areas which to this day are at the forefront of studies by a number of physicists. But over the years this acquaintance developed into friendship and gave the wife of one of us, Norma, and HHS the opportunity to host Tina and Vladik in their home, and get to know both a bit better. There was also the seminal International School on Laser Applications in Physics in Vilnius organized by Letokhov, and then a visit to Troitsk and his group at the Institute of Spectroscopy (and even the organization of a couple of piano recitals by one of our daughters, Marija, who accompanied her parents in the then USSR). Our interests crossed in a couple of fields: laser interactions with atoms and sensitive spectroscopy of radioactive atoms. Letokhov was a participant in the early organization of laser spectroscopy at CERN and was instrumental in providing copper vapour lasers to the isotope separator facility, ISOLDE. To this day laser ion sources are under the aegis of Valentin Fedoseyev who came to CERN from Troitsk. The interaction of lasers with atoms, in particular the process of slowing atoms, is discussed by Balykin. It was Christmas time when a card arrived from Oleg Tumanov of the Institute of Spectroscopy: it included a graph of temperature achieved by laser cooling as a function of calendar date. The results of Letokhov's group were the earliest (see figure 1), even though lower temperatures achieved subsequently by others extended our knowledge

This CD is stored at the offices of the European Physical Society as a backup, and as a master copy to make additional copies in case anyone should require one.
