Efficiency analysis with non parametric method: illustration of the Tunisian ports
Arbia Hlali, 2018, original scientific article

Abstract: This paper applies a non-parametric method to provide level technical efficiency for 7 Tunisian ports during 18 years (1998-2015). These ports represent different data set. The use of the model of variable returns to scale (VRS) has led to interesting results. The results show that the most ports are characterized by low levels of technical efficiency, with the exception port of Rades. In addition, the result shows the variation of variable returns to scale and constant returns to scale of technical port’s efficiency. Furthermore, we concluded that the panel data improves the efficiency estimates.

Influence of road transport infrastructure on agricultural sector development in Nigeria
Olusogo Ogunleye, Akinyemi Ajibola, Oluwafemi Enilolobo, Olufolakemi Shogunle, 2018, original scientific article

Abstract: The study investigated the effects of road transport infrastructure on agricultural sector development in Nigeria from 1985 to 2014, using secondary annual time series data on agricultural development (proxy by gross domestic product in the Agric sector) road transport infrastructure (proxy by length of paved road per square kilometer of area) export and capital, all obtained from the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) [3], and National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) [16], statistical bulletins. The data were analyzed using Granger Causality test and Ordinary Least Square estimation techniques. The study concluded that a positive and statistically significant relationship exists between road transport infrastructures (LRT) also evidence was found of a unidirectional causality from agricultural sector development to transport infrastructure. The study, therefore, recommends that adequate and timely maintenance of existing roads should be carried out as well as enacting appropriate regulations that ensure proper implementation and completion of new road construction contracts in the country in order to boost agricultural sector development, reduce wastage of farm produce and increase the possibility of economic diversification.

Analysis of road traffic safety in Minna Niger State, Nigeria
Adebayo Owolabi Oyetubo, Oluwaseyi Joseph Afolabi, Muhammed Etudaiye Ohida, 2018, original scientific article

Abstract: Road traffic accident is one of the major causes of death in Nigeria. Road accidents have taken away so many lives in Nigeria today that hardly does any single disease match its mortality prowess. People have died prematurely and properties worth several millions of Naira have been lost as a result of road traffic accident. This paper gives a full discussion on road traffic safety issues and the methodology used were through the collection of data using questionnaire and accident information from the Nigeria Police Force, FRSC etc. The primary information for this research was sourced through the use of structured questionnaire, personal observation and interviews of road users in the study area. Secondary data emanated from published and unpublished sources such as government records, internet, journals, books etc. The findings were presented in descriptive and inferential form using frequencies, percentages, tables, mean and chi-square analytical techniques. The findings from the study revealed among many others; that Male involved more in road accident compare to female counterpart in Minna Niger State. Private car had more accident compare to Taxi, The number of accident in each zone does not depend on the population of that zone, etc.

Use of ergonomic principles in manual order picking systems
Nina Labus, Brigita Gajšek, 2018, original scientific article

Abstract: Successful companies are continually striving to streamline costs and optimize processes, enabling them to grow progress, develop and ensure competitiveness on the market. A large part of the costs arises in warehouses, where up to 55% of total costs are generated by order- picking, which makes it important and interesting in terms of research. The paper explores "picker to part" order- picking concept, which enables flexible work and is the optimal choice for most companies. The concept is associated with a high level of work- related injuries and work -related illnesses. Work requires physical efforts resulting from handling heavy goods, performing repetitive movements and using manipulative means. Hum an as the main actor of the concept affects the costs caused by picking and the quality of work done, which depends on technological support, physically and psychologically capable and motivated people. Due to the high costs of service, the focus on time planning and productivity increases. Contrary, the lack of attention is paid to the working conditions and the health status of the pickers. To overcome this gab, a review of scientific and professional literature on ergonomic principles in picking concept "picker to part" was carried out, followed by a quantitative survey of ergonomic properties in warehousing activities. Results revealed that more than 60% of the surveyed order-pickers associate problems with health with the characteristics of work, about 24% of them associate health problems with the use of a particular means of transport, and all agree that provided measures to reduce physical effort and greater support of technologies influence on increased speed of work and better health status of order-pickers.

Assessing the recovery aftermaths of selected disasters in the Gulf of Mexico
Daniel Adrian Doss, David McElreath, Rebecca Goza, Raymond Tesiero, Balakrishna Gokaraju, Russ Henley, 2018, original scientific article

Abstract: This research examined quantitatively in-port grain loading levels during the periods preceding and succeeding selected human-made and natural disasters among U.S. Gulf Coast ports. The array of selected disasters consisted of the 2010 British Petroleum oil spill, the 2011 Mississippi River flood, Hurricane Katrina, Hurricane Gustav, and Hurricane Isaac. The outcomes of the analyses showed that the examined in-port Gulf Coast grain loading activities have not fully recovered and achieved the level of normalcy that existed before the examined cataclysms.

Predstavitev sodobne slikanice v Italiji
Nives Zudič Antonič, Livio Sossi, 2018, original scientific article

Abstract: V članku seznanjamo z značilnostmi slikanice, s poudarkom na umetnostnih in pedagoških vidikih sodobne ilustracije, ki jih objavljajo italijanske založbe. Srečanje predšolskega otroka s knjigo poteka predvsem s pomočjo branja preko vizualnih podob. Ilustracija lahko ponazori specifično pripovedno črto zgodbe, uvaja lastna jezikovna pravila in s tem spodbuja otroka k njihovemu dekodiranju. Slikanice sporočajo vsebino zgodbe s sliko in besedo ter s prepletanjem obojega. Njihov vpliv na razvoj procesov predbralne pismenosti je zato izjemen. Zaradi tega svoj prispevek začenjamo s predstavitvijo razvoja moderne slikanice v Italiji, nadaljujemo z analizo interakcije med besedo in sliko ter poskušamo osvetliti pomen, ki ga ima za otroke ustrezno razumevanje vizualnih podob. Obenem si prizadevamo spodbujati razvoj zgodnje vizualne pismenosti ter poudariti pomen branja slikanic za otrokov vsesplošen razvoj.
