    Full Text Available We present a checklist of mammal species recorded in Ikh Nart Nature Reserve, Dornogobi Aimag from August 2004 to August 2007 to add to existing knowledge about mammal distribution in Mongolia. We recorded the presence of mammals through opportunistic observations and live captures as part of on-going research projects in the reserve. We recorded 33 mammal species representing seven orders, 15 families, and 28 genera. Rodentia ( n =14 species represented the most speciose order and Perissodactyla ( n =1 species the least speciose. Of mammals present, one third are classi fi ed as IUCN threatened or near threatened in Mongolia, fi ve are listed in CITES appendices, and six are categorized as rare under the Mongolian Law on Fauna. Ikh Nart reserve harbors a quarter of the native mammal species known to occur in Mongolia, yet its size covers <0.05% of the country’s land area. Given the high diversity, high proportion of declining species, and small land area of the reserve, we suggest that Ikh Nart should represent a priority area for mammal conservation efforts in Mongolia.

    Full Text Available EXTENDED ABSTRACTFor the first time, the Dolenjska museum Novo mesto provided access to digitised museum resources when they took the decision to enrich the exhibition Novo mesto 1848-1918 by adding digital content. The following goals were identified: the digital content was created at the time of exhibition planning and design, it met the needs of different age groups of visitors, and during the exhibition the content was accessible via touch screen. As such, it also served for educational purposes (content-oriented lectures or problem solving team work. In the course of exhibition digital content was accessible on the museum website http://www.novomesto1848-1918.si. The digital content was divided into the following sections: the web photo gallery, the quiz and the game. The photo gallery was designed in the same way as the exhibition and the print catalogue and extended by the photos of contemporary Novo mesto and accompanied by the music from the orchestron machine. The following themes were outlined: the Austrian Empire, the Krka and Novo mesto, the town and its symbols, images of the town and people, administration and economy, social life and Novo mesto today followed by digitised archive materials and sources from that period such as the Commemorative book of the Uniformed Town Guard, the National Reading Room Guest Book, the Kazina guest book, the album of postcards and the Diploma of Honoured Citizen Josip Gerdešič. The Web application was also a tool for a simple and on line selection of digitised material and the creation of new digital content which proved to be much more convenient for lecturing than Power Point presentations. The quiz consisted of 40 questions relating to the exhibition theme and the catalogue. Each question offered a set of three answers only one of them being correct and illustrated by photography. The application auto selected ten questions and valued the answers immediately. The quiz could be accessed

    Full Text Available Bats represent one of the least studied mammal groups in Mongolia, and little is known about the distribution and ecology of species in the country. We surveyed bats in Ikh Nart Nature Reserve, which lies at the intersection of two ecozones in Mongolia, to determine the species present and obtain preliminary data on habitat associations. We conducted mist net surveys at 9 sites, including 4 at natural springs, 2 at human-made wells, and 3 at sites without water, from June to August 2011. We captured 149 individuals representing 3 species, Myotis aurascens, Eptesicus gobiensis, and Vespertilio sp. One species, E. gobiensis , represents a new record for the reserve. We captured all three species at sites near natural springs, only one species, M. aurascens, at human-made well sites, and no bats at sites without water. We also collected basic morphometric measurements for M. aurascens and E. gobiensis . Analysis of morphometric measurements for M. aurascens indicated some sexual dimorphisms. Our results provide a baseline estimate of bats in Ikh Nart and suggest that bat diversity is greater than previously thought. Our results also validate the presence of E. gobiensis and suggest that the species we captured associate mainly with natural water sources.

    Full Text Available G regariousness is a common behavioural trait observed in many large mammalian herbivores. Habitat characteristics, life history, spatio-temporal resource dynamics, population density, predation risk, competition with kin and social learning often determine gregariousness in a species. These factors may infl uence grouping patterns between species as well as between sexes within a species and several of these factors may be interrelated. In this study we examined the temporal dynamics of grouping behaviour and sexual segregation in argali ( Ovis ammon using eight years of observations in Ikh-Nart reserve, Mongolia. We measured monthly and yearly variations in typical group sizes and used a sexual segregation and aggregation statistic to assess sexual segregation. The typical group size observed was 14.97±2.74. The largest groups within the year occurred during lambing (May-June and mating periods (November-December. On an average, females formed larger groups than males. The sexes were segregated all year round except for the mating period and this pattern was consistent for all years. Argali grouping behaviour in Ikh Nart resembles the patterns observed in other sexually dimorphic mountain ungulates and argali subspecies across Asia.

    Full Text Available Background. In the article the development, basic principle and technical basis of peritoneal dialysis (PD, as one of the three methods of renal replacement therapy (RRT, are presented. In addition the PD treatment in dialysis centre Novo mesto from 1994 to 2003 is described.Methods. All available hospital records of 40 patients treated with PD over 9 years in dialysis centre were reviewed retrospectively. The authors were interested in age structure of patients, the causes of end-stage renal disease (ESRD, the course of treatment and complications that had arisen with PD.Results. PD was the first treatment option for 35 patients. There were 28.6% older than 55 years and 17.1% older than 65. The leading causes of ESRD are diabetic nephropathy and the group of glomerular diseases (especially IgA nephropathy – both in 25% of patients, as well as polycystic kidney disease (in 15%. The noninfectious complications and peritonitis are presented. The incidence of the latter is 1 episode/62,69 patient – months. The Gram-positive organisms were responsible in 45.5% and Gram-negative organisms in 13.6%. 3 patients had peritonitis caused by multiple microorganisms,with extremely severe course. In 6 patients renal transplantation was performed, 8 patients were transferred to hemodialysis (HD. Among the dead patients, there was a high percentage of patients with diabetes mellitus, the leading cause of death was cardiovascular complications.Conclusions. PD is highly recommended as first option in RRT in younger, compliant patients. Patients with diabetes and older patients with atherosclerosis are problematic, as various complications commonly arise.

    Full Text Available Background. The treatment of acute coronary syndrom (ACS with ST-segment elevation with primary percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA has been a routine method for treatment of these patients in KC Ljubljana since April 2000. Using this method, mortality due to ACS, reinfarction, total number of death and strokes in comparison to thrombolytic therapy were highly reduced. Since May 2001 primary PTCA has been attainable also for patients from regional hospitals to be transferred quickly enough to Ljubljana.Methods. A retrospective analysis of patients with ACS with ST-segment elevation who have been transferred from General Hospital Novo mesto to KC Ljubljana in the period from Oct. 1, 2001 to March 31, 2002 to have a primary PTCA was performed. The analysis comprised the following: time interval from the chest pain start to the arrival of patient to the General Hospital Novo mesto, handling of patient at Internistic department of General Hospital Novo mesto, transport of patient to Ljubljana and total time interval from the arrival of patient to the first inflation of balloon in Ljubljana.Results. In the upper mentioned period 14 patient (12 males and 2 females were transported from the General Hospital Novo mesto to the KC Ljubljana to perform a primary PTCA. Our patients arrive to hospital very late. Due to problems with transport organisation and patient’s escort and duty, total time interval measured between the patient arrival to the General Hospital Novo mesto to the first inflation of balloon in Ljubljana was 2h and 42 minutes. That was longer that had been stated previously in the literature.Conclusions. In our opinion, primary PTCA is practicable also for patients admitted to a regional hospital because of ACS with ST-segment elevation. The transport of patient is safe. Better organisation of Health Service and patient transportion would shorten the time needed to perform the first inflation of balloon in Ljubljana.

    Spanning a northern sector of continental Central Asia, the Altai Mountains contains a rich record of glaciation. Still, there are few studies reconstructing the dynamics and timing of former glaciers in the region. We investigated the glacial history of two paleoglaciers, residing on opposite flanks of the Ikh-Turgen Mountains, straddling the border between Russia and Mongolia, using a combination of remote sensing, terrain analysis, field investigations and 10Be surface exposure dating. On the eastern side (Mongolia) of Ikh-Turgen, mean arithmetic exposure ages from a latero-frontal moraine indicate deglaciation during Marine Isotope Stage (MIS) 3 (45.3±2.7 ka, n=5) and MIS 2 (22.8±3.5 ka, n=4). These age constraints are consistent with other paleoclimate records from the region. Cold and wet conditions during early MIS 2 and MIS 3 likely triggered glacier expansions but the transition to a drier climate resulted in more restricted paleoglacier extents during MIS 2 than during MIS 3. Well-constrained MIS 3 glacier expansions in Central Asia are rare. We therefore speculate whether the climatic and topographic setting of the eastern flank of the Ikh-Turgen Mountains has allowed for a better preservation potential of these moraines, making them more suitable for surface exposure dating than other regions of Central Asia, or whether MIS 3 moraines occur more widespread but await to be robustly dated. Corresponding surface exposure ages, from the western side (Russia) of Ikh-Turgen, indicate a more complex story with large scatter ( 14-53 ka, n=8) making paleoclimate inference and comparison to other proxies difficult. Owing to their proximity, the paleoglaciers of Ikh-Turgen, should have responded similarly to climate forcing, yet they exhibited distinctly different behaviours. We discuss the connection between paleoglacier dynamics and style of moraine deposition and propose that differences in glacier dynamics caused differences in ice-marginal depositional

    Full Text Available Spatially-explicit wildlife habitat models are increasingly used to study optimal habitat for species of conservation focus. A ruggedness layer, that summarizes aspect and slope, provides a useful tool for analyses conducted in a Geographic Information System (GIS, such as developing a habitat suitability index model to measure species habitat use. Ruggedness layers prove especially useful in areas where topography represents a key habitat component. We created a ruggedness layer for the Ikh Nart Nature Reserve and surrounding areas in northern Dornogobi Aimag (province, Mongolia. Using a 90 m Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM digital elevation model (DEM and ArcGIS 10 spatial analyst, we created 9 categories for ruggedness. When combined with other thematic layers such as vegetation, the ruggedness layer becomes a powerful tool for analyzing habitat use by individual animals. The results of such analyses may inform decision makers in protected area planning and conservation of endangered species.

  11. Historical outline of 16th century signets: including examples from the Franciscan monastery in Novo mesto

    2006-01-01

    Full Text Available The library of the Franciscan Monastery in Novo mesto keeps 224 early prints from the 16th century in which 175 printers’ and publishers’ devices were recorded. These were printed between 1501 and 1600 in 88 printers’ workshops across Europe. Printers’ and publishers’ devices, also called signets, were used in the 16th century as trademarks of respective printers and publishers. Spiritual and cultural ideas of the 16th century and intellectual goals of their owners are reflected in the complex humanistic motifs of signets. Most of the 16th century signets can be compared to impresas; they include a symbolic image and a short motto in Latin. This text presents some of the main characteristics of signets registered in Slovenia, such as the meaning, design features and motifs, dating from the early development of print culture in Europe.

  12. Evaluating the Quality of Protected Areas for Species: A Case Study in Ikh Nart Nature Reserve, Mongolia

    2014-12-01

    Full Text Available Species’ distributions refl ect the quality of landscape conditions, and represent an important component of protected area management. However, distributions are diffi cult to estimate, and consequently, often determined through a combination of limited fi eld data and expert opinion, which may lead to biases. We demonstrate the use of occupancy models to map distributions and estimate landscape quality. We used occupancy models for two species, the red fox and toad-headed agama, to map their distributions in Ikh Nart Nature Reserve located in southeastern Mongolia. We then used occupancy probability as a measure of quality and tested whether differences existed in quality between three areas: 1 inside the reserve, 2 inside the reserve’s core protected area, and 3 outside the reserve, using 30 sample sites in each. Occupancy probability varied from 0.084 to 0.997 for red foxes and 0.022 to 0.949 for agamas in maps. Landscape quality was highest in the core area and lowest outside the reserve for red foxes, and highest outside the reserve and lowest in the core area for agamas. Our results provide visual depictions of distributions across the Ikh Nart landscape and a means of assessing the quality of the Ikh Nart protected area that may inform management activities.

    Full Text Available Understanding the factors infl uencing survival of ungulate neonates facilitates successful management programs, particularly as they relate to population dynamics and adaptive species management. However, kid survival of near threatened Siberian ibex (Capra sibirica remains poorly understood. During 2005-2013, we captured and collared 21 ibex kids in Ikh Nart Nature Reserve in southeastern Mongolia, to monitor their survival and cause-specifi c mortality. We found no diff erences in morphometric measurements between male and female kids, except body mass being males weighing more than females. A total of 11 mortalities were documented and predations by red foxes (n=5, Vulpes vulpes and grey wolf (n=1, Canis lupus was the leading cause of the mortalities. Known fate models indicate the monthly survival of kids best explained by body mass and fi rst month of life (April-May + weight. Monthly survival estimates ranged from 0.077 (95% CI = 0.60-0.88 in April-May to 0.97 (95% CI = 0.90-0.99 in June-March, with an annual survival rate of 0.45 (95% CI = 0.24-0.68. We found little support for the hypotheses that body mass or birth date infl uenced survival; however, our small sample size limited the power of the analyses. Overall, our results indicated that predation and other factors led to high kid mortality during the period shortly after birth

    Full Text Available Cinereous vultures ( Aegypius monachus are the largest raptors in Eurasia. Little is known about the species, especially in Mongolia. We studied the nesting ecology of cinereous vultures in Ikh Nartyn Chuluu Nature Reserve, Dornogobi Aimag. To assess reproductive success, we located active nests and periodically checked to determine if they remained active. We measured nest sizes and, periodically, nestling sizes and weights. We located 42 active cinereous vulture nests (27 on rocks and 15 on trees in 2003 and 19 nests (14 on rocks and 5 on trees in 2004. Mean volume of active nests was 3.92 ± 0.39 m 3 ( n = 36. Most nests failed prior to egg hatching, but after hatching nesting success rates increased dramatically. Following hatching, cinereous vulture chicks grew linearly until leveling off just prior to fledging. We generated growth curves for chicks that allowed us to determine the average size of chicks on specific dates. Improving the prospects for successful cinereous vulture conservation likely requires a better understanding of nesting ecology. As such, we plan to improve the quality of our data by monitoring nests more intensively to determine incubation and fledging lengths, as well as causes of nest failures.

  16. Factors Affecting Home Ranges of Red Foxes in Ikh Nart Nature Reserve, Mongolia

    2012-12-01

    Full Text Available Changes in red fox home range size in relation to environmental and intrinsic factors were studied using radio-telemetry during 2006–2008 in Ikh Nart Nature Reserve, southeastern Mongolia. We captured a total of 12 red foxes (8 females and 4 males and fi tted them with VHF radio-collars. Marked animals were tracked up to fi ve times a week to estimate home ranges. We also trapped small mammal and insects in different biotopes for 3 years to estimate relative abundance of prey. Our results showed that mean individual home range sizes varied widely and differed among years. There was variation in home ranges between adults versus juveniles, but no signifi cant difference was found between males versus females. In addition, mean home range size did not differ seasonally for pooled years. Variation in home ranges was best explained by a model that included covariates of year and age. We suggest that spatiotemporal changes in resource availability across years infl uenced home range dynamics of red foxes in our study.

  17. Argali Sheep (Ovis ammon Movement Corridors Between Critical Resources in Ikh Nart Nature Reserve, Mongolia

    James D. Murdoch

    2017-05-01

    Full Text Available Understanding how animals move through a landscape can reveal corridors or narrow paths of movement that connect discrete parts of a landscape. Identifying corridors can be important for planning conservation activities, especially for threatened species. We synthesized information on the ranging behavior and distribution of argali sheep to quantify linkages and potential pinch points of movement between critical resources in Ikh Nart Nature Reserve, Mongolia. We used a cost-weighted distance approach to quantify the relative cost of movement between water sources (springs, which represent critical resources. We used values to map a corridor of movement and examined movement fl ow through the corridor using a circuit theory approach. We identifi ed a corridor connecting all springs that covered 50.6 km2 . Most of the corridor overlapped the reserve (77% and reserve’s core area (62%. A least-cost path between the furthest separated springs (18 km was 26.4 km. Most movement fl ow through the corridor concentrated around springs, especially those in the southern and central portions of the corridor. The analysis also revealed several pinch points that represent a conservation concern. We recommend prioritizing activities at pinch points and extending protected area boundaries to encompass all springs to eff ectively protect the entire corridor.

    Full Text Available Siberian ibex ( Capra sibirica remain poorly understood, as little is known about their ecology . W e began studying ibex in Ikh Nart Nature Reserve, Dornogobi Aimag, Mongolia to better understand the species’ ecological needs and threats. In this paper we report on home range and core range sizes. We captured 27 ibex and fi t them with radio telemetry collars using drive nets for adults and juveniles ( n = 22 and hand captures for neonatal kids ( n = 5 . W e collected 1,029 locations from September 2003 to February 2007. Throughout the study, 9 ibex with 40+ fi xe s used mean, annual home range sizes of 3,115.5 ± 504.2 ha using the Minimum Convex Polygon method. Home ranges calculated using the fi xe d kernel method were smaller: 475.9 ± 14.7 ha for 50% kernel and 1,808.0 ± 88.1 ha for 95% kernel. Ibex from different demographic groups (males vs. females and juveniles vs. adults used remarkably similar home and core ranges; we found no signifi ca nt differences among any demographic groups. Although not quantifi ed , ibex mostly restricted their activities to areas with steep cliffs and rocky outcrops and home ranges overlapped extensively.

    Full Text Available The lesser kestrel is recognized as “Least Concern” in the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN Red List since 2011. So far, all available diet studies on the lesser kestrel were conducted in its European range or in partial African breeding and nonbreeding range. In particular, little is known about the feeding behavior of this small falcon in Asian ranges. Thus, this study can be considered as the first to examine the diet composition of the central Asian breeding populations of lesser kestrels. This study aims to provide some information about the diet composition of this species among Asian populations through biological and ecological investigations. Pellets (n = 762 dropped by lesser kestrel (Falco naumanni were collected during their breeding season from nine to 10 colony sites in Ikh Nart, between June and September of 2009 and 2010, and analyzed. A total of 1,484 prey items were identified in the pellets collected. After a measure of their weight (g and length and width (mm, we carefully examined each pellet and separated all prey remains using tweezers. Our results indicated that insects (including orthopterans and coleopterans were dominant in lesser kestrel’s diets. We found that the lesser kestrel’s diet mainly consisted of insects (69.7%, lizards (17.4%, small mammals (10%, small birds (2%, and other food (1%.

    Full Text Available With the present article, I would like to illustrate the long period of classical librarianship and classical processing of library materials prior to the invasion of computer technology and new way of catalog composition into libraries. In the classical period of the processing of library materials, author catalogs were formed by one or several authors while in the frames of computer processing of library materials, multi-author catalogs are being produced. In the čase of an author catalog, a consistent UDC scheme exists and the author's manner of classification and editing of the catalog can be recognized.Such a catalog discloses its author: his education in a special field of knowledge and in other scientific fields, his mastering of general scientific sistematics, his mastering of the špirit in systematics of the UDC system not to resort to formal classification. The catalog also reveals the extent of the author's democracy through the way he treats his favourite and less favourite authors, places, events,phenomena, ideologies etc.In my opinion, aH the mentioned should be described and documented because passing tirne slowly but persistently destroys everything and everything which is not being documented, passes into oblivion.

    1980-01-01

    This monograph gives the results of research into the molecular structure of humic acids; certain issues are examined of an applied nature; the data from experimental industrial tests are generalized. Data are generalized which involve questions of the use of humic acids in the form of multiple-ton product. In agriculture, they are used for producing final complex fertilizers and plant growth stimulators; in drilling technology, for improving drilling muds; in the cement industry, for lowering the moisture content of cement raw material sludges. Methods of modifying humates by sulfomethylation are described, and a method for producing coal-alkali reagents directly at drilling and cement firms, based on intensifying the process of interaction of coals with alkali solutions.

    1999-07-01

    A seminar on radioactive waste treatment and disposal was held 9 - 14 November 1998 in Oskarshamn, Sweden. The objective of the seminar was to exchange information on national and international procedures, practices and requirements for waste management. This information exchange was intended to promote the development of a suitable strategy for management of radioactive waste in Northwest Russia to be used as background for future co-operation in the region. The seminar focused on (1) overviews of international co-operation in the waste management field and national systems for waste management, (2) experiences from treatment of low- and intermediate-level radioactive waste, (3) the process of determining the options for final disposal of radioactive waste, (4) experiences from performance assessments and safety analysis for repositories intended for low- and intermediate level radioactive waste, (5) safety of storage and disposal of high-level waste. The seminar was jointly organised and sponsored by the Swedish Radiation Protection Institute (SSI), the Norwegian Radiation Protection Authority (NRPA), the Nordic Nuclear Safety Research (NKS) and the European Commission. In brief, the main conclusions are: (1) It is the prerogative of the Russian federal Government to devise and implement a waste management strategy without having to pay attention to the recommendations of the meeting, (2) Some participants consider that many points have already been covered in existing governmental documents, (3) Norway and Sweden would like to see a strategic plan in order to identify how and where to co-operate best, (4) There is a rigorous structure of laws in place, based on over-arching environmental laws, (5) Decommissioning of submarines is a long and complicated task, (6) There are funds and a desire for continued Norway/Sweden/Russia co-operation, (7) Good co-operation is already taking place.

  9. Razlika kao mesto odakle: teorijsko izvođenje telesnosti i rodnosti iz perspektive feminizama razlike / Difference as a Place From Where: Theoretically Performing Body and Gender From the Perspective of Difference Feminisms

    Full Text Available Subordinating the body to the concept of gender in the process of recognizing of one’s own picture in the place of the subject is the main condition of the subjectivity itself. As the gender concept is already presupposed in the structure of language in which the subject recognizes itself, a carnal body is veiled by the textual body which actively performs the gender making it “real” in the linguistic and cultural space. By following the theoretical lines of difference feminisms, this paper particularly focuses on the phenomenon of genderness – especially female genderness as the place of difference, researching the potentials of theoretically performing the female body and gender in the context of mapping the potential space for innovation, intervention and transgression of the dominant system.

    In arid regions of the developing world, pastoralists and livestock commonly inhabit protected areas, resulting in human-wildlife conflict. Conflict is inextricably linked to the ecological processes shaping relationships between pastoralists and native herbivores and carnivores. To elucidate relationships underpinning human-wildlife conflict, we synthesized 15 years of ecological and ethnographic data from Ikh Nart Nature Reserve in Mongolia's Gobi steppe. The density of argali (Ovis ammon), the world's largest wild sheep, at Ikh Nart was among the highest in Mongolia, yet livestock were >90% of ungulate biomass and dogs >90% of large-carnivore biomass. For argali, pastoral activities decreased food availability, increased mortality from dog predation, and potentially increased disease risk. Isotope analyses indicated that livestock accounted for >50% of the diet of the majority of gray wolves (Canis lupus) and up to 90% of diet in 25% of sampled wolves (n = 8). Livestock composed at least 96% of ungulate prey in the single wolf pack for which we collected species-specific prey data. Interviews with pastoralists indicated that wolves annually killed 1-4% of Ikh Nart's livestock, and pastoralists killed wolves in retribution. Pastoralists reduced wolf survival by killing them, but their livestock were an abundant food source for wolves. Consequently, wolf density appeared to be largely decoupled from argali density, and pastoralists had indirect effects on argali that could be negative if pastoralists increased wolf density (apparent competition) or positive if pastoralists decreased wolf predation (apparent facilitation). Ikh Nart's argali population was stable despite these threats, but livestock are increasingly dominant numerically and functionally relative to argali. To support both native wildlife and pastoral livelihoods, we suggest training dogs to not kill argali, community insurance against livestock losses to wolves, reintroducing key native prey species

    2012-01-01

    Full Text Available Dalian je drugo najpomembnejše mesto na jugu province Liaoning na severovzhodu Kitajske. Nekoč je tam stalo naselje Qingniwa, ki so ga med letoma 1858 in 1950 drug za drugim zasedli Britanci, Japonci in Rusi. Vsak osvajalec je v mestu uvedel svoj arhitekturni slog. Rusi so mesto med drugo svetovno vojno odvzeli Japoncem, leta 1950 pa so ga končno vrnili Kitajski. Po letu 1950 je bila večina stavb in območij iz časa ruskega imperija porušena zaradi prenove, ki je potekala v mestu. Največje spremembe so se zgodile po letu 1984, ko so mesto razglasili za posebno gospodarsko območje, zlasti pa v 90. letih 20. stoletja, ko je postal župan Bo Xilai, ki je v mestu uredil parke, avtoceste in krožišča. Tradicionalno grajeno okolje je skoraj izginilo; danes je to sodobno mesto, v katerem se gradijo obsežna stanovanjska naselja. V njem prevladujejo stanovanjske stolpnice, v katerih živi 5,72 milijona prebivalcev. Leta 2011 je bila med 400 prebivalci opravljena anketa, v kateri so morali ti izraziti svoje mnenje o življenju v Dalianu in na njegovem ureditvenem območju ter oceniti svoje življenjske pogoje in stopnjo zadovoljstva s stanovanji. Rezultati ankete so jasno razkrili negotovost večine anketirancev glede spremenljivk, povezanih s kakovostjo stanovanj ter z naravo, s kakovostjo in z dostopnostjo razpoložljivih storitev. Kljub temu je največ anketirancev navedlo, da imajo javni promet, odprte prostore, parke in rekreativne površine na voljo blizu doma.

    2014-12-01

    Full Text Available Little information exists on the isotopic signatures of plants and animals in Mongolia, limiting the application of stable isotope analysis to wildlife biology studies. Here we present plant and mammal carbon (δ 13 C and nitrogen (δ 15 N isotope values from a desert-steppe region of southeastern Mongolia. We analyzed 11 samples from 11 plant species and 93 samples from 24 mammal species across Ikh Nart Nature Reserve, and compared these numbers to isotope values reported from other areas of Mongolia. Our plant and mammal 13 C and 15 N values were similar to those from a similar arid steppe region and more enriched than those from less arid habitats. Habitat variation within and between study sites has an important infl uence on δ 13 C and δ 15 N variation. Our results supplement current knowledge of isotopic variation in Mongolia and provide a reference for future stable isotope research in Mongolia and similar Asian steppe ecosystems.

    2017-12-01

    The paper presents the results of laboratory experiments on the biodegradation of different oil compositions from the Usinskoye oil field in the presence of systems for enhanced oil recovery. It is shown that the oil-displacing IKhN-PRO system could be an optimal stimulating substrate to activate the biooxidation of oil with a high content of aromatic hydrocarbons, while the maximum conversion of oil with a high content of n-alkanes is observed in the presence of the oil-displacing sol-forming NINKA 3 system. A stimulating effect of the systems on the hydrocarbon-oxidizing native microflora of the oil reservoir, promoting its growth and increasing the level of oil biodegradation, could be used to enhance oil recovery, in addition to physicochemical methods.

    Full Text Available Background. There is a significant difference in a prevalence and type of intestinal parasitic diseases in former time and today. Incidence of parasitic diseases is very much in relationship to social and hygienic circumstances in the environment. Hygienic habits of people also take part of it. For this reason preschool childrens are the most involved subject.Methods. Author wanted to estimate the prevalence of intestinal parasites by preschool children in the Dolenjska region. Feces and perianal prints ware taken during the systematic examination in the pediatric practice. The samples were analyzed in the microbiological laboratory of the Institute of Public Health Novo mesto. The following parasites were searched: Enterobius vermicularis, Ascaris lumbricoides, Giardia lamblia, Cryptosporidium sp., Taenia solium, Taenia saginata and Trichuris trichiura.Results. Between 315 samples of feces only one contained ovum of Ascaris lumbricoides and between 307 perianal prints only one was positive to Enterobius vermicularis.

    Full Text Available This article is devoted to an architectural and historical analysis of the constructions forming a complex of Assumption Cathedral of the Astrakhan Kremlin, which earlier hasn’t been considered as a subject of special research. Basing on the archival sources, photographic materials, publications and on-site investigations of monuments, the creation history of the complete architectural complex sustained in one style of the Muscovite baroque, unique in its composite construction, is considered. Its interpretation in the all-Russian architectural context is offered. Typological features of single constructions come to light. The typology of the Prechistinsky bell tower has an untypical architectural solution - “hexagonal structure on octagonal and quadrangular structures”. The way of connecting the building of the Cathedral and the chambers by the passage was characteristic of monastic constructions and was exclusively seldom in kremlins, farmsteads and ensembles of city cathedrals. The composite scheme of the Assumption Cathedral includes the Lobnoye Mesto (“the Place of Execution” located on an axis from the West, it is connected with the main building by a quarter-turn with landing. The only prototype of the structure is a Lobnoye Mesto on the Red Square in Moscow. In the article the version about the emergence of the Place of Execution on the basis of earlier existing construction - a tower “the Peal” which is repeatedly mentioned in written sources in connection with S. Razin’s revolt is considered. The metropolitan Sampson, trying to keep the value of the Astrakhan metropolitanate, builds the Assumption Cathedral and the Place of Execution directly appealing to a capital prototype to emphasize the continuity and close connection with Moscow.

    Full Text Available V članku se obravnava načrt urbane širitve Barcelone, ki ga je leta 1860 izdelal Ildefons Cerdà, ali natančneje, kako in zakaj je bilo mesto zasnovano na tako edinstvni način, pri čemer je imelo pomembno vlogo zagotavljanje storitev prebivalstvu. Cerdàjev predlog širitve je temeljil na poglobljeni družbeno-statistični študiji bivalnih pogojev v stari Barceloni. Visoka umrljivost pripadnikov delavskega razreda ter slabi zdravstveni in izobraževalni pogoji so Cerdàja napeljali k oblikovanju nove vrste urbanističnega načrtovanja, ki jo je opredelil kot »urbanizem«. V predlogu za novo mesto je predvidel posebna območja za storitve, kot so tržnice, šole in bolnišnice. V prvem delu članka so opisane urbanistične in politične okoliščine v Barceloni, predstavljeni pa so tudi statistični podatki, na katerih je Cerdà oblikoval svoj prispevek. V drugem delu članka je s pomočjo lokacijske teorije in geografskega informacijskega sistema (GIS analiziran vzorec lokacij in prebivalcev, ki uporabljajo tržnice in bolnišnice. Na podlagi topografskih načrtov iz let 1926 in 1975 je opravljena študija razvoja širitve vse do končne stopnje. Dejanski razvoj mesta je bil drugačen od Cerdàjevega predloga, in sicer deloma zaradi nepričakovane rasti gostote prebivalstva in grajenega okolja ter večje zasedenosti stavb, vseeno pa je bil osnova za razporeditev ulic in avenij.

    Full Text Available Nasal vestibular furunculosis is a common bacterial skin infection among the general population mostly affecting adults and children.It is characterized by acute localized infection of hair follicle in the skin lining of the nasal vestibule caused by Staphylococcus aureus. Immunodeficiency also plays an important role in recurrent skin and soft tissue infections (SSTI including Nasal furunculosis. Though, the lesion is small, it is extremely painful and tender. Treatment is mostly conservative which consists of warm compresses, analgesics to relieve pain, topical and systemic antibiotics directed against staphylococcus. With rapidly increasing resistance to antibacterial agents, management of these bacterial infections is becoming increasingly difficult. In Ayurveda, it can be correlated with Nāsāruṇaśikhā (Nasal furunculosis. Morphologically, it appears like pīḍikā (Furuncle which is characterized by Rāgayuktaśotha (inflammation with reddening. Jalaukāvacaraṇa (Leech therapy is one of the ancient and important parasurgical procedures described in Ayurveda for treatment of various diseases. In this case, a leech has been applied at the affected area. After leech treatment, throbbing pain was reduced in its intensity followed by gradual reduction in swelling and reddening in two days.This case suggests the utility of leech application in Nasal vestibular furunculosis.

    Full Text Available The transition from the Mongolian Neolithic to the Bronze Age is not well understood. Within Ikh Nart Nature Reserve, over a period of five years, we identified a number of sites with dense surface artefact scatters and features that seem to represent this transition period. Evident in those concentrations are characteristic microblade cores, microblades, “thumbnail" flake scrapers, projectile points, ground stone tools, and stone features of unknown function. Between 2012 and 2014 we collected ground stone artefacts from four sites and sediment samples from three sites. With permission of Mongolian authorities, the artefacts from one site and sediment samples from three sites were sent for botanical analyses to the University of Texas, Austin, Environmental Archaeology Laboratory. Preliminary results indicate that plant remains are present on the ground stone artefacts: dendritic long-cells from a deep pore of one artefact and starch grains from the pores of six of the seven artefacts. These data present the first opportunity to understand what resources “Neolithic” people were processing with ground stone tools in this area and further our opportunity to better understand the little-known “Neolithic”-Early Bronze Age transition period in Central Asia. This paper describes the ground stone artefacts and further explores the results of data retrieved from some of these artefacts.

    Full Text Available This review contains an assessment of Ilyas Kh. Kamalov’s book on the relationship between the Jochid ulus and Russian principalities, as well as the subsequent influence of the Golden Horde’s civilization on the development of the Russian state. The book is analyzed within the context of the present state of research on the Golden Horde and its relations with Rus’. This inevitably leads to a comparison of the level of scientific value of the reviewed book with other contemporary publications on the history of the Jochid ulus. The review evaluates the structure of the book, the thoroughness of the analysis, highlights its strengths and weaknesses, and draws attention to a number of controversial elements. The author of review finds that the book of I.Kh. Kamalov, despite several drawbacks, could likely attract the interest of various reading audiences and stimulate further research and discussions on the history of the Golden Horde and its relations with the Russian principalities.

    Full Text Available Background. Arthroscopic subacromial decompression is the method of choice in operative treatment of subacromial rotator cuff impingement. In General Hospital Novo mesto the procedure is performed on a basis of one-day surgery.Methods. We present a prospective analysis of results of operative treatment of shoulder impingement in 36 patients. In all patients functional shoulder scores according to Constant, SST and UCLA were recorded before the operative procedure and again at least three months after the index procedure.Results. According to acromial morphology in the observed group there were three patients with type I acromion (8%, 22 patients had type II acromion (61% and 11 had acromion type III (31%. The average Constant score improved from 21 (SD ± 15 before the operation to 78 (SD ± 12 after the operation and average SST score improved from 4,7 (SD ± 2 to 7,5 (SD ± 1.4 and average UCLA score from 11 (SD ± 3 to 26 (SD ± 3.Conclusions. We conclude that arthroscopic subacromial decompression in properly selected patients enables attainment of good or excellent results in over 90% of patients. Because of minimal invasivness the procedure can be safely performed as one-day surgery.

    Full Text Available In this paper, a second-derivative spectrophotometric method of assaying Septalen pellets (Krka, Novo Mesto, Slovenia, which contain lidocaine 1 mg, and cetrimonium bromide 2 mg, is described. Lidocaine, 2-(diethylamino-N-(2,6-dimethyl-phenyl-acetamide, is a local anesthetic with pronounced antiarhythmic and anticonvulsant properties. Cetrimonium bromide, N,N,N-trimethyl-l-hexadecanaminium bromide, is a topical antiseptic and cleansing agent. Lidocaine was determined at 250 nm using the "zero crossing" technique because the signals of centrimonium bromide and the colour ingredient are zero at this wavelength. Cetrimonium bromide was determined by correction of the peak amplitude at 215 nm according to lidocaine. In choosing the optimal magnitudes for the simultaneous determination of both drugs, the following criteria were considered: (1 the linearity of the calibration graphs as given by the correlation coefficients, (2 the intercept, (3 the sensitivity as given by the regression coefficient, (4 the degree of interference in the derivative measurement by the presence of the other compound, as given by the relative percent error and by the relative recovery, and (5 the reproducibility, as given by the coefficient of variation, calculated by recording the second-derivative spectra.

    Full Text Available Sexual Medicine is a discipline concerned with the impact of psychophysiology, relationships, socio-cultural influences, developmental effects, sexual preference and variations, gender identity and inter-gender differences on the sexual function and experience of men and women of all ages, both as individuals and within the context of their relationships. Its aim is the restoration or improvement of function, and the optimisation of sexual experience and well-being, and of personal and interpersonal satisfaction with sexuality. According to sexual medicine, sexual problems are divided into four categories: sexual concerns, difficulties, dysfunctions and disorders.Two linear (Masters and Johnson, Kaplan and a circular model (Basson are the three most commonly used models of sexual response in sexual medicine. According to the latest sexuality studies a new classification has been introduced by the International Committee of Sexual Medicine. Sexual dysfunctions are not divided into physical or psychogenic anymore; the cause should be clarified through the etiology. A biopsychosocial approach, which systematically considers biomedical, psychological and socio-cultural history, is used in the assessment of a sexual problem. The basic modelling system of psychosexual therapy is the PLISSIT model.A biopsychosocial approach was used on 127 women with a sexual dysfunction, average age 34.3 (from 19 to 64, treated at the gynaecological outpatient clinic in General hospital Novo mesto between 2013 and 2015. In addition, the PLISSIT model proved to be simple and successful.

    Full Text Available Po državljanski vojni, ko je bila nujno potrebna družbeno-politična reorganizacija, so ameriške univerze prispevale k procesu ponovne vzpostavitve notranjega ravnovesja moči v državi. Tako so poskusili okrepiti politične stranke in razviti regije kot politično diskretne ozemeljske enote, ki jih je bilo razmeroma lahko upravljati. V 20. stoletju je politika lokalne centralizacije na regionalni ravni skupaj s priložnostjo, ki jo je ponujala potreba po učinkovitejšem upravljanju mest, prerasla v zavedanje, da naj bi precejšnji prispevek akademske skupnosti politiki pomagal ponovno vzpostaviti merila upravljanja za celotno državo. Da bi se dokumentirale in preučile nekatere najpomembnejše povezave med načrti univerzitetnih kampusov in načrtovanjem mest v Čikagu, je v članku predstavljeno več načrtov univerzitetnih kampusov in načrtovalskih strategij, pri čemer lahko »mesto« razumemo kot metonimijo za celotno družbo.

    Full Text Available V prispevku želimo pokazati nekatere družbene posledice prehoda industrijskega mesta v postindustrijsko, kot primer bomo pogledali preobrazbo soseske Poblenou v Barceloni. Najprej bomo ugotovili, da je mesto lahko nosilec ideoloških sporočil in da ima produkcija mestnega prostora vedno tudi neposredne ideološke učinke. Pokazali bomo, da integracija barcelonske ekonomije v globalno ekonomijo in njena strukturna preobrazba pomembno vplivata na preobrazbo soseske Poblenou ter tako neposredno določata vsakdanjo izkušnjo mesta tamkaj živečih prebivalcev. Vendar barcelonski mestni oblastniki ekonomsko motivirano preobrazbo prikazujejo kot nujno prenovo »problematične soseske«, ki da je v interesu njenih prebivalcev. Prav tu je zato treba kritično premisliti ideološke učinke hegemonističnih reprezentacij mesta ne le kot instrumentov vsiljevanja korporativnih ali birokratskih interesov od zgoraj, ampak tudi kot nosilca normalizacije posameznika in homogenizacije mestnega prebivalstva. Kot primer takšnega vsiljevanja bomo v sklepu navedli primer Kolizeja v Ljubljani.

    Slovak Video Meteor Network (SVMN) is a project of Comenius University in Bratislava for continuous monitoring of meteor activity [1] over Slovakia. The network is based on AMOS (All-sky Meteor Orbit System) Cameras [2], which astrometric precision was calibrated using several commonly observed fireballs within European Fireball Network [3]. The field of view of the AMOS is 180° × 140° and the output digital resolution 1280 × 960 px with the frame rate of 15 f/s. Limiting sensitivity is +5.5 mag for stellar objects and about +4 mag for moving objects. The whole system is protected by outer and inner housing and monitoring by detectors of temperature, rain and illumination of the sky. The system is portable and suitable for expeditions from the ground or research planes. The AMOS cameras are working at four locations (SVMN) at present: AGO Modra, Arboretum T. Mlyňany, Kysucké Nové Mesto Obs. and Važec stations. The operation of cameras is semi-automatic and needs electric power and internet connection. The standard astrometric error is within an interval of 0.03--0.05 deg resulting in several tens or hundreds of meters for meteor atmospheric trajectory determination. The internal precision of the AMOS cameras is even better, especially when the precise all-sky reduction described in [4] is used. The first prototype has been working at the AGO Modra Observatory since 2007. Each AMOS camera records about 10 000 meteors per year as well as about 50 transient luminous events (sprites, elves) in Central Europe sky conditions. The results from the observational expedition on Tenerife and La Palma (Canary Islands 2014) showed higher efficiency of AMOS cameras at high altitudes and dark sites. The analyses of selected meteor streams (SPE, ACO, Lyrids and others) from AMOS cameras will be presented.

Findings are based on more than 25 years of practice in professional promotion of quality: in consulting on private and public sector, from 1990 lead auditor at SIQ (Slovenian Institute of Quality, from 1998 lead assessor – commission for Slovenian Excellence Quality Award. Theory is developed based on: Noriaki Kano theory of Attractive quality, Tito Conti ideas on TQM and applications problems of Excellence model, Practical case of General Hospital Novo Mesto (in 1998 first attempt of using EM, than forced to build QMS based on ISO 9001 and then returned to practice EM. Findings: We really need to amplify and to understand the concept of quality in a much wider way. To treat excellence related activities separated from all others quality management activities is not god solution. The name of EFQM Excellence Model should be replaced with Quality Management Model. Research limitations/implications: This paper present findings mainly based on practice in Slovenia and especially in public sector where practicing of CAF is not giving expected benefits. Practical implications: The three styles of quality management (improvements to reach demands, improvements to reach expectations, improvements to react on new conditions and needs should be connected with personal development. Theory is developed based on: Noriaki Kano theory of Attractive quality, Tito Conti ideas on TQM and applications problems of Excellence model. We need integration moments.

    Full Text Available In a world divided by irreconcilable ideological differences into the capitalist West and the socialist East, Yugoslavia itself has, since the early fifties, faced a permanent choice between two options, on the borderline between those two opposing blocs. Coerced by political circumstances, the country's leadership had chosen its own path into communism, formulated through the idea of worker self-management that secured the belief among the people of Yugoslavia that they did not belong to either of the sides divided by the iron curtain. Although it was initially promoted as an expression of authentic Marxism, these unique political projects inevitably lead to an increasing openness toward the western world. The reduction of central government control over the economy, opening of borders, freedom of movement inside and outside the country, freedom of companies to trade abroad, permissible limited private property etc. allowed for easier access to elements of a consumer society that were coming from the West. Getting closer to the western world, as a cultural and an economic process, in the early 1960s also became a subject of Yugoslavian cinematography, which had after a string of years of partisan films begun to deal with modern (urban life. Through an anthropological analysis of the most popular domestic films made during that period, such as: Zajednicki stan, Nema malih bogova, Ljubav i moda and Na mesto građanine pokorni, in this paper I observe how ideological dilemmas concerning the first experiences of abandoning 'pure' socialism and the gradual acceptance of consumerism manifested in society (just prior to the economic reform of 1965., the vision of some future society that came to exist and the encounter with the taste of its values and lifestyle (the appearance of market mentality where new rules become important - competition and a fight for personal interest, individualism opposed to collective socialist solidarity etc..

    Full Text Available Tine Germ: Smrt kraljuje povsod in bela Smrt triumfira:  Valvasorjevo Prizorišče človeške smrti v evropskem kontekstu Ljubljana: Znanstvena založba Filozofske fakultete Univerze v Ljubljani, 2015, 176 strani, 68 ilustracij Umetnostni zgodovinar Tine Germ je v zadnjih letih Valvasorjevemu delu Theatrum mortis humanae tripartitum iz leta 1682 posvetil vrsto raziskav, njihove ugotovitve pa je leta 2015 razširil in povezal še v monografijo Smrt kraljuje povsod in bela Smrt triumfira. Raziskave so bile vsekakor potrebne: Prizorišče človeške smrti je bilo namreč do tedaj v slovenski umetnostni, literarni in kulturni zgodovini kljub pomembnosti avtorja in kljub primerljivosti z najkvalitetnejšimi sorodnimi deli iz drugih evropskih dežel skoraj prezrto ali vsaj zelo pomanjkljivo obravnavano. Raziskave so bile tudi uspešne: prvič so prinesle poglobljeno ikonografsko analizo omenjenega polihistorjevega dela in prvič obširneje opisale njegovo mesto v sočasni evropski likovni in literarni umetnosti. Iz uvoda k monografiji Smrt kraljuje povsod in bela Smrt triumfira je jasno razvidno, da je bilo to mogoče najprej zato, ker je avtor kritično dekonstruiral tradicionalne paradigme, zlasti (umetnostnih ali literarnih »centrov« oziroma »obrobij«, pa tudi (slogovne ali idejne »naprednosti« oziroma »zaostalosti«, ki so v humanističnih vedah ovirale in v določeni meri še vedno ovirajo neobremenjeno raziskovanje del, kakršno je Prizorišče človeške smrti. Germova monografija nas tako že na začetku implicitno opozarja, da čaka na temeljitejšo znanstveno obravnavo še veliko umetniških in literarnih del, nastalih na Slovenskem v srednjem in zgodnjem novem veku, ki smo jih puščali ob strani zaradi različnih predsodkov, oblikovanih v 19. in 20. stoletju.

    Full Text Available Abstract: Research Question (RQ: The establishment of the university (in a certain place, it can also be University of Novo mesto is time-consuming and extremely important process. A lot of criteria that influence on the decision as to what form of organization would be rational and advantageous should be taken into account. The question on which it will be answered is: is it possible to use quantitative methods to identify meaningful organizational structure of the University and how do we do that? Purpose: The aim and objective of the research is to answer the above question and thereby give decision makers the possibility to use additional neutral informations. Method: In the research the method of multiple attribute decision making is used. With the combination of AHP method and algorithm VIKOR a solution to the problem is given, when the input data are crisp numbers. However, since the input data are often, especially in the case of the University mainly descriptive and ambiguous terms, we have to use the principles (theorems of fuzzy logic. Synthesis of the both methods is the fuzzy multiple attribute decision making method and used in this research. Results: The results of the research show that scientific instruments that are used are meaningful and unambiguously answer the question. Of course, as with any quantitative method, it is necessary to take into account the robustness of the input data. Organization: The research results can have a direct impact on the decisions of the organization of a possible new university. Society: Impact of the research on society, social responsibility and the environment is direct, since with used algorithm these components are taken into account. Originality: The study is original in (at least two aspects: a it defines the introduction of fuzzy sets in one of the methods of operation research and thus enables great flexibility in the use of partially imprecision and only in words defined criteria

    Full Text Available Background. The incidence of dementia is growing due to the aging of the population. Active search for the population at risk is necessary. Short cognitive screening tests are one of the most suitable ways of doing that. The most often used test of this kind is Mini Mental State Examination (MMSE. Its distinctive features are simplicity and shortness. Kratek preizkus spoznavnih sposobnosti (KPSS – Slovenian version of MMSE has been used in Slovenia since 1984, although there were no normative values for Slovenian population, which restricted its applicability and use in clinical practice. The aim of the present paper was to obtain the normative values for KPSS for different age and educational groups in population of adults older than 55 years. Our hypothesis was that test results would be significantly dependent on age and education which will justify the extensive nature of the study.Methods. Some parts of the test were modified based on clinical experience in last years. The modified KPSS was used for testing at general practices in Ljubljana, Maribor and Novo mesto. The research comprised of KPSS testing in 154 volunteers, mean age 65.1 (ranged from 55 to 87 years. None of them had a diagnosis of dementia or other active psychiatric or neurologic ilness.Results. We found that KPSS results are not influenced by gender. The volunteers were aranged in four age groups at five years intervals. Statistically significant differences (p < 0.0002 for the mean results among different age groups were found. The volunteers were further divided in groups according to the level of education and the differences in mean results among the educational groups were statistically significant (p < 0.0000. Normative values for the age and education groups were obtained.Conclusions. The main result of our study are KPSS normative values for different age and education groups of Slovenians. The mean results on KPSS are significantlly dependent on age and education

    Full Text Available Background. Mortality rates are one of the basic measures for population health estimation. The mortality data in Slovenia are collected according to well-defined methodology. Thus our results can be easily compared with the results of other countries. The purpose of this article is to display the most important causes of death with emphasis on premature deaths. This way the authors try to provide aggregate information to those doctors who are filling in the mortality data and those public health workers who have been designing Slovenian public health policy.Methods. The basic descriptive epidemiology methods are used to present the mortality in Slovenia in the year 2001 classified by gender, age groups and regions. Standard mortality indices were calculated: the number of deceased, crude death rate, age standardised death rate, median age at death and years of potential life lost.Results. The crude mortality rate among women is falling with time while the crude mortality rate among men is constant. The median among men is growing while among women is constant. According to analysis of combination of all mortality indices the most endangered regions in Slovenia are those of Murska Sobota and Novo mesto.The babies and preschool children die mostly because of conditions originating in perinatal period and congenital anomalies. For children after seven and adolescents the most frequent causes of death were injuries and poisoning. Suicides on the first place and traffic accidents on the second are the most frequent causes of death among young adults. Among old adults the frequency of causes of death depends on the gender: women die mostly because of breast and gastrointestinal cancer, but men because of liver diseases and ishemic heart diseases. Most frequent cause of death among elderly is cardiovascular diseases.Conclusions. The aggregate mortality data are adequate for crude population health estimation. The mortality indices in Slovenia do not

In the recent years tourism is considered to be one of the most growing economic service activities in the world. Toursim is a civilizational achievement of the modern era and one of the essential factors of economic development, therefore many countries emphasize the development of tourism as a stategic developmental direction. The question I proposed is whether the etsablishment of the arcaheoloigcal park Marof would lead to a successfull preservation of the acraeological findings and their presentaiton to the public hence proving socially responsible behaviour. Purpose: The purpose of this article is to give an overview of home and foreign scientific literature dealing with social responsibility of companies and to present a good practice example. Method: I used a descriptive research method, which is based on the studies of theoretical content and the use of pre-existing home and foreign scientific literature. Results: The idea of the archaeological park Marof is presented as a social responsibility of the nation (the preservation of the archaeological cultural heritage, the social responsibility of the organization (offer for tourists, individual social responsibility (quality spent free time, social responsibility of the professionals involved (archaeologists and other professionals. Organization: Museums are public cultural institutions concerned with the preservation of the mobile cultural heritage. The main activiti es of museum do not only involve collecting, sorting, listing, researching and preserving of this heritage but also presenting the collected material to the public. This presentation normally takes place through permanent and special archaeological exhibitions. In this casehowever the material would be

    Developing the ecosystem based adaptation strategies to maintain water security in critical water catchments in Mongolia would be very significant. It will be base by reducing the vulnerability. "Ecosystem Based adaptation" is quite a new term in Mongolia and the ecosystem approach is a strategy for the integrated management of land, water and living resources that promotes conservation and sustainable use in an equitable way. To strengthen equitable economic development, food security, climate resilience and protection of the environment, the implementation of sustainable river basin management in critical water catchments is challenging in Mongolia. The Ulz river basin is considered one of the critical water catchments due to the temperature has increased by in average 1.30Ñ over the period 1976 to 2011. It is more intense than the global warming rate (0.740C/100 years) and a bit higher than the warming rate over whole Mongolia as well. From long-term observations and measurements it is clear that Ulz River has low water in a period of 1970-1980 and since the end of 1980s and middle of 1990s there were dominated years of the flood. However, under the influence of the global warming, climate changes of Mongolia and continuation of drought years with low water since the end of 1990s until today river water was sharply fallen and dried up. For the last ten years rivers are dried up and annual mean run-off is less by 3-5 times from long term mean value. The Ulz is the transboundary river basin and taking its origin from Ikh and Baga Burd springs on territory of Norovlin soum of Khentii province that flows through Khentii and Dornod provinces to the northeast, crossing the state border it flows in Baruun Tari located in Tari Lake concavity in Russia. Based on the integrative baseline study on the 'The Ulz River Basin Environmental and Socioeconomic condition', ecosystem based river basin management was planned.

Made famous by the Molnik fibula and represented on several situlae, it is a typical genre scene: the hunter, standing or kneeling behind a tree with his hound, is aiming his bow at a couple of grazing animals, evidently symbols of the herd. In the context of stag-stalking scenes, two probable misinterpreta- tions should be pointed out: rather than the tip of a rabbit’s ear, the triangular finish of the missing element from the Dürrnberg cup may be the extreme end of either the barb of a bilobate arrow (Fig. 4.

Glede na to, da so humanistične študije športa vsaj na prvi pogled nekje na obrobju ved, ki jih združuje Filozofska fakulteta, bi morda veljalo, da ga ne moremo primerjati z globoko resnimi temami, zlasti pa ne z najnovejšimi resnimi zahtevami, ki jih družba postavlja univerzi in znanostim: pripomoči k višji donosnosti in poslovnosti podjetništva ter ohranjati tradicijo in krepiti življenjsko moč naroda. Pa se že pri tem izkaže, da športa ne gre preveč zapostavljati; po eni strani je že nekaj desetletij, kar je postal izjemno kapitalsko zanimivo in donosno področje, v katero podjetniki bodisi vlagajo, da bi dosegali dobičke, bodisi ga podpirajo, da bi z njegovo pomočjo svoje blago povzdignili v simbol pravilno naravnanega načina življenja; po drugi strani pa je tradicija nacionalne pomembnosti vrhunskih športnih izidov in dosežkov le nekaj krajša od drugih načinov mednarodnega uveljavljanja naroda, pomen športnih dosežkov za dokazovanje življenjske moči naroda pa se lahko kosa s pomenom lestvic, kakršne izdajajo mednarodne finančne ustanove o državah, ali lestvic, na katerih najdemo univerze, razvrščene po njihovi pedagoški in znanstveni moči. Pomembnost športa pa podčrtavajo tudi tisti, ki ga ostro kritizirajo in njegovo sodobno vrhunsko različico odklanjajo kot obliko alienacije, manipulacije in ideologije, saj prav športni spektakularizaciji pripisujejo najvišjo napetost, največji pomen in najotipljivejšo moč nad ljudmi, ki bi se morali bojevati za spremembo svojega družbenega položaja in prevrat v vsej družbeni strukturi, pa jih razvedrila, med katerimi ima šport posebej visoko mesto, uspavajo in pomirjajo prav s tem, da njihovo napetost sproščajo v nenevaren odliv socialne energije.

Rezultat je bil indikativen izbor urbanih vedut, s katerimi so poskušali vizualizirati idejo Zagreba kot prestolnice ene od republik SFRJ – Zagreb, ki je urbano središče s pomembnimi spomeniki iz različnih zgodovinskih obdobij, od srednjega veka do najnovejše dobe, hkrati pa napredno evropsko mesto, ki v polni meri sledi sodobnim trendom arhitekturnega in urbanističnega razvoja. Z natančnim sledenjem upodobitev Zagreba na razglednicah in značkah v času socializma se vzpostavi zemljevid, ki jasno razkriva prioritete splošnega urbanističnega razvoja tako v velikem merilu kot v posameznih detajlih: od celih mestnih četrti, kot sta Zagrebški velesejem in Novi Zagreb, do enako indikativnih posamičnih interpolacij, kot sta stavba Ferimporta in nebotičnik na Ilici.

    cane sedges and horsetails dominant. The benthic fauna is poor, and only single pecimens of molluscs and amphipods are met. The ichtyofauna is represented by Oreoleuciscus Pewzowi. Previous and modern investigations of these lakes, their morphologies and deposits, allow to specify periods of extension of the lakes and palaeogeographical conditions. Two clear extension periods can be determined in the Mongolian Great Lakes Basin, corresponding to Mid-and Late Pleistocene transgressions. During the Mid-Pleistocene transgression the current Lakes Har-Us Nur, Dorgon Nur, Hara Nur, Airag Nur and Hyargas were integrated to a united lake, with a maximal level at 1265 m. and total water area about 23 158 km2 . The maximal thickness of Mid-Pleistocene lake deposits is 70 m. Late Pleistocene lake sediments are investigated in sections near Dzabhan River and Hyargas Nuur shorelines. They consist of laminated sand, clay and gravel with cryogenic structures at the base and upper part of sections. The mean thickness of Late Pleistocene lake deposits is 20-35 m. The main characteristics of Late Pleistocene lake features are represented by a very bright "lake relief" — obvious steps of shorelines, gravel bands, bars and spits. The specific structure of Late Pleistocene lake cross-sections allows to separate two transgressions within this period. In the first half of the Holocene a minor regression of several meters occurred. Elements of the modern time aeolian relief were still inundated on the north shore of Lake Har-Us Nur.

Imajući u vidu da su za obavljanje poslovnih aktivnosti više nego potrebni pravovremeni, tačni, proverljivi, lako dostupni i konzistentni podaci, osnovni problem upotrebe tih podataka nije njihovo postojanje, već mesto i način na koji su ti podaci smešteni i organizovani unutar distribuiranih poslovnih jedinica. Takođe, uvođenjem informacionih tehnologija u obavljanju poslovnih procesa, korisnih podataka je sve više, ali se postavlja pitanje stepena njihove iskorišćenosti.

    Luxusgeschirr, und sie sind vorzüglich gearbeitet. Aus Slowenien, aus Dolenjsko, der Region südöstlich von Emona - Ljubljana, wo die noch lebendige Tradition der reichen Eisenzeit angenommen werden dürfte, sowie aus Poetovio- Ptuj stammen die Becher. Von diesen dürften der Götter-Becher von Črnelo (jetzt im Nationalmuseum in Ljubljana und der gravierte Becher mit dem griechischen Trinkspruch von Novo mesto- Bršljin (jetzt im Kunsthistorischen Museum in Wien in keinem Handbuch über römisches Glas fehlen. Diese beiden sind als dem Kultus fest verbunden zu betrachten, obwohl jedenfalls vorerst dem individuellen Kultus der libatio, zusammen mit der Magie am Tische, welche den Genuss von Getränken begleitet, besonders den Genuss von Wein mit einem Wunsch nach Wohlbefinden, mit einem Trinkspruch also. Bis dahin ist es nur ein kleiner Schritt zum Totenkult. Die Efeu-Ranke des Kantharos von Poetovio - Ptuj kann so mit den beiden erwähnten Dimensionen dieser Vorstellung gut in Verbindung stehen. Dagegen wird hier die Meinung vertreten, die Gravur der Flasche von Ptuj deute mehr darauf hin, dass sie ursprünglich als eine Art von Widmung an die Götter von Alexandrien gedacht gewesen sei und zugleich zu einem Souvenir aus dem Land am Nil geworden sei, da es jedenfalls ursprünglich eine spezielle landeseigene Flüssigkeit, ein möglicherweise wohlriechendes Öl oder eine Pomade, enthalten hat. Wein z.B. wäre dazu nicht eigenartig genug gewesen. Beim Darstellen der Keramikware wird vorerst der schon alten Feststellung, dass an Sigillata immer wieder Motive vorkommen, die dem Weingenuss angepasst sind, beigestimmt. Zu bestimmten Phasen einiger Werkstätten gehören ferner über das Bildfeld verteilte Glückwunsch-Inschriften, aber auch die jedenfalls nicht mehr verstandenen Motive, die von den ursprünglich als eine Art Souvenir gedachten Zirkusbechern stammen. All das dürfte den Gebrauch hier zu Lande weniger beeinträchtigen. Die Inschrift und das Dekor des ACO
