Sarcopenia, obesity, and their association with selected behavioral factors in active older adults
Kaja Teraž, Miloš Kalc, Manca Peskar, Saša Pišot, Boštjan Šimunič, Rado Pišot, Primož Pori, 2023, original scientific article

Abstract: Introduction: The number of obese people in the world is increasing, as is the number of sarcopenic people among the older adults. Although both states are concerning, they can be positively influenced by selected behavioral factors such as adequate nutrition and physical activity. We were interested in the prevalence of sarcopenic obesity in active older people and the influence of behavioral factors on this phenomenon. Methods: The study included 38 older adults (21 women) with a mean age of 75.3 ± 5.0 years. Sarcopenic parameters were determined with different tests: Handgrip Test, Chair Stand Test, Gait Speed, Timed Up and Go Test, and Short Physical Performance Battery. Body composition was measured by dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry. Physical activity level was measured using accelerometers, and nutritional status was assessed using the Mini-Nutritional Assessment and MEDLIFE Index questionnaire. Results: Of all included active participants (the average number of steps per day was 8,916 ± 3,543), 47.4% of them were obese. Of all included women, 52.4% were obese. Sarcopenic obesity was found in three (7.9%) participants. Nutritional status correlated with strength of lower extremities and physical performance tests (gait speed, Timed Up and Go Test and Short Physical performance battery). Higher number of steps per day positively correlates with physical performance. Discussion: Interestingly, we did not find any correlation between the main obesity parameter such as percent body fat or body mass index (and thus sarcopenic obesity) and any of the selected behavioral factors (physical activity, sedentary behavior, or dietary habits). In conclusion, reaching the recommended levels of physical activity in older adults may not be sufficient to prevent the occurrence of obesity and sarcopenic obesity.

Physical activity drops during summer holidays for 6- to 9-year-old children
Tadeja Volmut, Rado Pišot, Jurij Planinšec, Boštjan Šimunič, 2021, original scientific article

Abstract: Regular physical activity (PA) reduces the health risk of childhood obesity and associated chronic diseases as well as mental health problems. Since PA declines as children age as well with future generations it is of highest importance to intervene in school and out-of-school settings. Out-of-school periods affect children's PA as it is mainly left to the interest and motivation of their parents. We compared accelerometer-based PA patterns in 93 6- to 9-year old children assessed four times: before (May/June), during (August), and after (September) summer holidays and at a 1-year follow up (May/June). Before summer holidays children were assessed also for anthropometry and motor tests. During summer holidays overall PA decreased by 18% (p < 0.001), physical inactivity increased by 5.5% (p < 0.001), moderate PA decreased by 53% (p < 0.001) and moderate to vigorous PA decreased by 45% (p < 0.001) when compared to before summer holidays. Furthermore, overall PA remained diminished also after summer holidays by 8.8% (p = 0.001) but recovered to baseline values at 1-year follow up. About 30% of overall PA and moderate to vigorous PA decrease during summer holidays could be explained by children's fitness level as a greater decrease was found in children with better results in standing long jump and 300-meter running time. Our finding detects an alarming summer holiday decrease in children PA that should not be neglected in future studies and intervention designs.

Blockchain tehnologija na vzponu : študija sprejetja kripto valut v sklopu slovenskega hotelirstva
Žiga Zdovc, 2024, master's thesis

Abstract: Magistrska naloga obravnavna segment blockchain tehnologije in kripto valut v turistični dejavnosti, predvsem pa uporabo blockchain tehnologije in kripto valut v sklopu slovenskega hotelirstva. Ugotovili smo, da blockchain tehnologija predstavlja novo inovacijo v okviru segmenta informacijske in finančne tehnologije, ki omogoča izgradnjo čisto novih oblik med-deležniških (P2P) in decentraliziranih digitalnih platform. Segment kripto valut pa predstavlja najbolj vidno obliko blockchain tehnologije in so ena od novejših tehnoloških inovacij v okviru finančnega gospodarstva. V procesu izvedbe raziskovalnega dela magistrske naloge smo se osredotočili na raziskovanje sprejemanja tehnologije kripto valut med slovenskimi hotelirskimi ponudniki, kjer smo uporabili model sprejemanja tehnologije ⎯ TAM. Rezultati magistrske naloge nakazujejo, da slovenski hotelirji še ne vidijo tehnologije kripto valut kot uporabnega in razvojnega potenciala, ki ga bi v svoja podjetja implementirali v bližnji prihodnosti, vendar obenem niso izrazito nenaklonjeni morebitni uporabi kripto valut v prihodnosti njihovega delovanja. Slovenski hotelirji so zaenkrat še v vlogi stranskih opazovalcev, ki čakajo na večje premike in dogajanja v segmentu blockchain tehnologije in uporabi kripto valut. Ugotovitve našega TAM modela predlagajo, da je za namen sprejemanja tehnologije kripto valut v hotelirski dejavnosti najbolj pomemben vidik predhodno zaznane uporabnosti tehnologije in v manjšem merilu tudi dejanske enostavnosti uporabe tehnologije. Prav tako pa je pomemben dejavnik trenutnega zaupanja v tehnologijo, ki so si ga slovenski hotelirji izoblikovali skozi njihovo dosedanjo percepcijo blockchain tehnologije in segmenta kripto valut.
Keywords: Blockchain tehnologija, kripto valute, kripto valute v hotelirstvu, kripto turizem, model sprejemanja tehnologije ⎯ TAM.

Korupcija v slovenskem zdravstvu - analiza poročil Računskega sodišča : magistrsko delo
Maja Loknar, 2024, master's thesis

Abstract: V osrčju vsake družbe, vključno s slovensko, je njen zdravstveni sistem, ki je ključen za ohranjanje zdravja prebivalcev. Zdravstveno stanje prebivalstva vpliva na blagostanje celotne družbe, to pa posledično vpliva tudi na gospodarski razvoj države. Slovenski zdravstveni sistem temelji na načelih univerzalnosti, solidarnosti in dostopnosti. Zaradi vsega naštetega sta ključnega pomena razumevanje in analiziranje morebitne korupcije v tem vitalnem sektorju. Pomembno je, da se ohranja zaupanje javnosti v zdravstvo, še bolj pa sta pomembni kakovostna oskrba in obravnava pacientov. Za kakovostno zdravstveno oskrbo so potrebna visoka finančna sredstva, zato je toliko bolj pomembno zagotoviti transparentnost celotnega zdravstvenega sektorja. Korupcija je velik problem sodobne družbe, ki zavira, če ne celo onemogoča razvoj. Sredstva, ki bi morala biti namenjena širši družbi, so namreč uporabljena kot sredstva za dosego zasebnih ciljev posameznikov in skupin. Cilja zaključnega dela sta bila spoznavanje pojma korupcije v zdravstvu in analiza Računskega sodišča Republike Slovenije. S pomočjo analize literature in člankov so bili predstavljeni ključni pojmi, kot so korupcija, oblike korupcije (v zdravstvu), integriteta itd. Predstavljeni so bili tudi Računsko sodišče, njegovo delovanje, revizijski proces in pomen Računskega sodišča. Pregled in analize izbranih devetih revizij Računskega sodišča (in porevizijska poročila) od leta 2019 naprej so pokazale, da se v slovenskem zdravstvenem sistemu pojavljajo in ponavljajo problemi pomanjkanja podatkov in problemi s sistemom javnih naročil. Predstavljene so bile tudi možnosti za izboljšanje stanja, kot sta uvedba tehnologije veriženja podatkovnih blokov (angl. Blockchain) ter povečanje integritete in rabe etičnih kodeksov. Predstavljena so bila še priporočila Računskega sodišča, kot izhajajo iz izbranih revizijskih poročil, med drugim dosledno spremljanje, izdelava in pridobivanje podatkov ter evidenc in nadgradnje izobraževanj in usposabljanj za odločevalce.
