Reviewing the narrative concerning the impact of population growth in Africa
Cocou Marius Mensah, 2019, original scientific article

Abstract: This article discusses the topic of population growth in Africa, a recurring theme in the era of climate change and the fight against CO2 emissions. The African continent is full of essential raw materials and encompasses the youngest population in the world. There is no doubt concerning the significant role it will play in global affairs, at a time when the world population is ageing, according to the UN statistics. In recent years, many policymakers have highlighted the necessity to deal with overpopulation, provoking moral controversial and basic human rights abuses. This article, however, proposes an opposite argumentation based on fresh data and emphasises the opportunities and challenges to take on, as the author considers "overpopulation" as more of a challenge than a sentence to underdevelopment. Though the paper mentions different issues linked to overpopulation, such as migration crisis, ecological sustainability and the UN Sustainable Development Goals, it concludes with a reminder of the importance of international cooperation as a solution to global issues.
Keywords: global issues, impact of population growth, migration trends, international cooperation, pollution, African Union, European Union, UN sustainable development goals, environmental footprint

Kompetence vodje pasjega hotela
Katja Podgoršek, 2020, master's thesis

Abstract: Živimo v negotovih časih, spremembe so stalnica v današnjem vsakdanu, zato so ustrezno kompetentni in motivirani zaposleni, ki znajo uporabljati svoja znanja, veščine in kompetence tudi v nepredvidljivih okoliščinah, nuja za obstoj in preživetje organizacij na trgu. V magistrskem delu govorimo o kompetencah, ki smo jih opredelili kot posamezna znanja, lastnosti in sposobnosti posameznika, ki jih le ta potrebuje za uspešno opravljanje dela na svojem delovnem mestu. Na primeru organizacije, ki se je odločila za razvoj profila kompetenc vodje, smo prikazali oblikovanje kompetenčnega profila za delovno mesto vodje pasjega hotela. S ciljem sistematičnega razvoja kompetenc in izboljšanja produktivnost smo organizaciji dali orodje za lažje prilagajanje spremembam ter še večjega zadovoljstva in zaupanja strank. Hkrati smo oblikovali primer dobre prakse na področju, ki je še dokaj neraziskano. Za oblikovanje kompetenčnega profila smo uporabili kvalitativno metodo in sicer smo v prvem koraku najprej dodobra spoznali in analizirali dotično delovno mesto ter s pomočjo pridobljenih podatkov oblikovali šest ključnih kompetenc za izbrano delovno mesto. Sledila je analiza 360 stopinj z namenom ocene kompetenc vodje. Rezultati analize so si bili kljub oceni s strani štirih različnih skupin ocenjevalcev enotni, in potrdili, da vodja hotela izkazuje ustrezno raven kompetenc glede na kompetenčni profil delovnega mesta.
Keywords: • Kompetenca, • Model kompetenc ali kompetenčni model, • Analiza 360 stopinj, • Varstvo psov, • Vseživljenjski razvoj (angleško: Life-span development).

A Variety of Entrepreneurial Motives
Miroslav Rebernik, Karin Širec, Polona Tominc, Katja Crnogaj, Matej Rus, Barbara Bradač Hojnik, 2020, scientific work

Abstract: In the world’s largest longitudinal survey, the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM), we have been exploring important features of entrepreneurship for 21 years, with particular emphasis on the earliest stages when business opportunities are perceived and individuals decide whether to engage in entrepreneurship. GEM was designed to (1) measure differences in attitudes towards entrepreneurship, activities and aspirations of individuals in as many countries as possible, (2) identify factors that encourage or hinder entrepreneurial activity, especially in relation to societal values, personal characteristics and the entrepreneurial ecosystem, (3) provide a platform for assessing the impact of entrepreneurial activity on economic growth in a given economy, and (4) identify the necessary policy measures to strengthen entrepreneurship. With the help of this research, we better understand society's attitude towards entrepreneurship and characteristics of the individual, such as perception of one's own abilities for entrepreneurial activity, ability to perceive opportunities, entrepreneurial intentions, and fear of failure. As GEM monitors entrepreneurial activity throughout the phases of the life cycle (nascent, new businesses and established businesses, discontinuation), according to impact (high growth, innovation, internationalization) and by type (early-stage entrepreneurship activity, employee entrepreneurship activity), the picture is much richer than the one that is based only on data gathered from ordinary statistical databases.

Sustainable development of careers in tourism
Mitja Gorenak, 2016, original scientific article

Abstract: Developing sustainable careers in the tourism sector is just as hard as achieving sustainable tourism in general. Our objective was to determine tour guides' attitude to the sustainable development of their careers by tourist agencies as those engaging them. We conducted a survey among representatives of tourist agencies (N = 34). The research showed that the economic pillar of sustainable development is perceived to be the most important when it comes to the sustainable development of careers, followed by the environmental pillar as the second and the social pillar as the least important. In order to achieve the truly sustainable development of careers, the focus must be on the social pillar of development.
Keywords: tourism, career, development, human resources

Knjiga, film in igra: Adaptacijska analiza Heart of Darkness, Apocalypse Now in Spec Ops: The Line
Miha Brumec, Victor Kennedy, 2017, master's thesis

Abstract: Magistrsko delo se ukvarja z romanom Heart of Darkness ter njegovima priredbama. Delo je razdeljeno na dva dela. V prvem sestavimo teoretično ogrodje s katerim lahko opravimo analize, ki sledijo v drugem delu naloge. Vendar tega ogrodja ne gre enakomerno uporabljati zaradi značilnosti posameznih medijev, torej knjige, filma in računalniške igre. Tako so ugotovitve o gibanju kamere kot tudi o podobnih elementih omejene zgolj na vizualna medija, saj se v pisni obliki ne morejo pojaviti. Analitičen del naloge je razdeljen v tri poglavja, ki dela obravnavajo tako v zaporedju izdaj, kot v zaporedju, ki omogoča, da lahko vsako poglavje osnuje svojo analizo na ugotovitvah oz. podatkih prejšnjih poglavij. Tako moramo prvo analizirati knjigo na kateri osnujemo naš pregled filmske priredbe, ki nato služi sočasno s knjigo kot temelj na katerem lahko analiziramo računalniško igro. Primerjalne ugotovitve analiz se nato še enkrat pojavijo v sklepu.
Keywords: adaptacija, analiza, Heart of Darkness, Apocalypse Now, Spec Ops: The Line, Joseph Conrad, Yager Development, Francis Ford Coppola
