Hygiene monitoring of textiles used in the food industry
Sabina Fijan, Avrelija Cencič, Sonja Šostar-Turk, 2006, original scientific article

Abstract: Protective clothing is required in the food-processing industry, to protect workers from contamination by bacteria, fungi, viruses, prions etc. contained in the secretions and raw meat of slaughtered animals, and to protect the meat from being contaminated by microorganisms carried by the workers. It is well-understood that textiles are a control point (CP), and must be appropriately cleaned and disinfected in order to prevent biocontamination. Although the laundering procedure itself is important for achieving disinfection, it is also essential to maintain an appropriate hygiene level in the laundry, in order to prevent recontamination of textiles by environmental viable microorganisms. In this study, a sanitary-microbiologicalanalysis was carried out in selected CPs in two laundries. Chemo-thermal washing efficiency was determined by evaluating the anti-bacterial effect against Enterococcus faecium and Staphylococcus aureus. The hygienic state of the laundries was determined by evaluating the number and type of microorganisms at selected CPs throughout the whole laundering procedure. The results indicated that the sanitary condition of both laundries did not reach the required levels and that several microbes were resistant to cleaning and disinfecting agents. It is obvious from the results that achievement of an appropriate hygiene level during laundering textiles from the food processing industry requires the implementation of appropriate corrective monitoring measures.

Rotaviral RNA found on various surfaces in a hospital laundry
Sabina Fijan, Andrej Steyer, Mateja Poljšak-Prijatelj, Avrelija Cencič, Sonja Šostar-Turk, Srečko Koren, 2008, original scientific article

Abstract: The aim of this investigative study was to determine the presence of rotaviral RNA at various control points (CP) of a hospital laundry. One of the possible sources of hospital infections is inappropriately laundered and disinfected hospital textiles. RT-PCR and nested PCR for gene amplification using specific primers following RNA isolation were used to determine the presence of rotaviral RNA on swabs. In addition, rotavirus suspensions were inoculated on marked surfaces as positive controls for different surfaces (cotton textiles, folding table and industrial dryer). Rotaviral RNA was found on various laundry surfaces: technical equipment, storage shelves, transport vehicles, personnel's hands, damp textiles, and folded laundry. Rotaviral RNA was also detected at all positive controls on tested surfaces after 24 h. Based on the results, it is very important to take into consideration the proper handling of textiles after washing as one of the precautions against hospital-acquired infections. This paper reports the presence of rotaviral RNA for the first time on surfaces in laundries and equipment, as well as textiles.

User-centred design for multiscreen e-health applications for elderly people
Emilija Stojmenova, 2013, doctoral dissertation

Abstract: This work identifies the weaknesses of the conventional UCD methods and presents a conceptual model for modifying standard UCD research procedures in such a way that they will be appropriate and supportive for the design and development of multiscreen e-health applications for elderly people. The suggested model would be used for adapting selected UCD methods for the targeted population and e-health applications’ usage contexts. A multiscreen e-health application named Med-Reminder was used in order to evaluate the modifications of the UCD methods and compare the efficiency of the modified UCD methods with the efficiency of the standard UCD methods. The user-centred design efficiency scale (UCD_ES) and heuristic observation were used to compare the efficiencies of the standard and modified UCD methods and to determine which UCD methods would be more appropriate when doing research with elderly people within the e-health domain.
Keywords: User-centred design, UCD methods, elderly people, e-health, multiscreen, Med-Reminder

SPRACHLICHE CHARAKTERISTIKEN DER DEUTSCHEN WEB-MAGAZINE
Borut Kampuš, 2014, undergraduate thesis

Abstract: Männer und Frauen lesen nicht nur Bücher, sondern auch Magazine. In der modernen Zeit, in der es ohne das Internet sowohl im privaten als auch im beruflichen Leben gar nicht mehr geht, sind also Web-Magazine eine gute Alternative. Es gibt Männerwebmagazine und es gibt Frauenwebmagazine, und in meiner Diplomarbeit habe ich mich gefragt, welche Eigenschaften beide Kategorien vorweisen, sprachlich und allgemein gesehen. In dieser Diplomarbeit werden die Männerwebmagazine Playboy.de und Menshealth.de sowie die Frauenwebmagazine Cosmopolitan.de und Elle.de untersucht. Mein Ziel war es festzustellen, welche Themen aktuell sind, was die sprachlichen Merkmale sein könnten und ob es Unterschiede gibt, wenn man Männerwebmagazine und Frauenwebmagazine zu vergleichen versucht. Die Ergebnisse im empirischen Teil wurden durch das Vergleichen des Inhalts und der sprachlichen Ebene auf den Internetseiten von diesen Männer- und Frauenwebmagazin gewonnen und dann sorgfältig miteinander verglichen. Von Tag zu Tag gibt es weniger gedruckte Ausgaben von Magazinen und Zeitschriften, weil die Verleger es verstanden haben, dass die Zukunft nur noch in den Online-Ausgaben liegt.
Keywords: Männerwebmagazine, Frauenwebmagazine, Playboy, Men's Health, Cosmopolitan, Elle, Internet

Impact of computer training courses on reduction of loneliness of older people in Finland and Slovenia
Helena Blažun, Kaija Saranto, Sari Rissanen, 2012, original scientific article

Abstract: Previous research has shown loneliness as a threat for the quality of life of older peopleč therefore the goal of the intervention in a quasi-experimental study was to evaluate and discuss the self-reported level of loneliness of older people in Finland and Slovenia before and after a computer intervention.Intervention in a quasi-experimental study was conducted among 58older participants at the baseline (M = 72.4 years) and 45 older participants at the follow-up research study (M = 72.9 years). Inferential statistics showed a significant difference in the reduction of loneliness between the countries, and a decreased level of loneliness of older people after completing the computer training course. Although older people experience many age-related problems which may reduce their interest in learning information and communication technology (ICT) skills, it is important that they are computer-proficient, because computer engagement can reduce the level of loneliness of older people and in this way has a positive effect on their quality of life.
Keywords: older people, loneliness, computer training course, socialization, health and well-being
