Klemen Kerstein, 2014, master's thesis

Abstract: Analysis of the scientific background in science fiction is one of the approaches used to determine the depth of science represented in the texts. Both qualitative and quantitative parameters are taken into account when one analyzes the stories. The general idea is to examine how scientifically accurate or inaccurate the text is, and how well is a scientific field, proportionally speaking, is covered in the stories. Analysis of science fiction literature on climate change yields rather similar results. In general, the texts are dark and melancholic. Time wise, the stories are future oriented and accompanied by retrograde implications. As far as the science is concerned, the length of the texts is inversely proportional to the quantity of the science. Most of the stories deal with the phenomenon of global warming, with human activity being the main reason for such occurrence. Both causes and effects are relatively well covered, though the effects appear to be predominant. Besides anthropogenic impact in general, the other frequently addressed causes are changes caused by increased carbon dioxide concentrations, methane emissions and chlorofluorocarbon emissions. Effects such as sea-level rise, temperature rise, ice melting, floods, droughts, animal migration, animal re-adaptation, and vegetation and urban changes, are commonly used in the setting of the stories.

Cost-effective restructuring based on process approach
Ivan Todorović, Stefan Komazec, Miha Marič, Jovan Krivokapić, 2013, original scientific article

Abstract: Different authors agree that designing the organizational structure in accordance with the business processes can bring numerous advantages, which improve business performance of the organizational system. This article aims to show how cost-effective restructuring, through modification of organizational structure according to business processes that exist in the organization, can bring numerous benefits. Successful implementation of process organizational model does not necessarily demand large investments, but only adequate structural changes and internal reorganization. The data used in this paper were gathered during the project of restructuring one transportation company from Belgrade, which consulting team from Faculty of Organizational Sciences, University of Belgrade, performed in year 2012.

Upravljanje sprememb za prestrukturiranje poslovnih procesov v proizvodnji duroplastov s pomočjo generičnega modela
Gregor Vedenik, 2016, doctoral dissertation

Abstract: Slovensko gospodarsko okolje je v zadnjih desetletjih doživelo ogromno tranzicijskih, lastniških, tržnih, političnih in tudi finančnih sprememb. Podjetja, ki teh sprememb niso pravočasno upoštevala pri oblikovanju in izvajanju strategij, so se hitro znašla v težavah oziroma sploh niso preživela. Obvladovanje sprememb je ključnega pomena za konkurenčno delovanje podjetij, organizacij. Podjetja lahko za podporo uporabljajo različne pristope, tehnike, orodja, modele, ki pa niso prilagojeni zahtevam, ki izhajajo iz strategije in okolja ter tipu podjetja, še posebej, če so ta mala in srednje velika. V disertaciji je predstavljena zasnova in na študiju primera prikazano delovanje generičnega modela za obvladovanja sprememb, ki na osnovi simulacij menedžmentu v malih in srednje velikih podjetjih nudi podporo pri zaznavanju problemov, definiranju rešitev in implementaciji nujnih sprememb v poslovnih procesih. Uporaba generičnega modela za upravljanje sprememb statično podjetje spreminja v dinamično, ki je sposobno hitrih prestrukturiranj, ko je to potrebno.

Challenges of on-line condition monitoring of hydraulic oils
Vito Tič, Darko Lovrec, published scientific conference contribution

Abstract: Ensuring adequate quality of hydraulic oil and planning its change is crucial for a stable and smooth operation of many industrial machines. The best reliability can certainly be provided by using continuous monitoring of hydraulic oils, which is usually carried out remotely by means of modern online sensors. Nevertheless, the development and implementation of such a system represents a unique challenge, since the measurement of the oil condition is much more complicated than measuring usual operating parameters, such as pressure or temperature.

Assessment of cassava supply response in Nigeria using vector error correction model (VECM)
Oluwakemi Adeola Obayelu, Samuel Ebute, 2016, original scientific article

Abstract: The response of agricultural commodities to changes in price is an important factor in the success of any reform programme in agricultural sector of Nigeria. The producers of traditional agricultural commodities, such as cassava, face the world market directly. Consequently, the producer price of cassava has become unstable, which is a disincentive for both its production and trade. This study investigated cassava supply response to changes in price. Data collected from FAOSTAT from 1966 to 2010 were analysed using Vector Error Correction Model (VECM) approach. The results of the VECM for the estimation of short run adjustment of the variables toward their long run relationship showed a linear deterministic trend in the data and that Area cultivated and own prices jointly explained 74% and 63% of the variation in the Nigeria cassava output in the short run and long-run respectively. Cassava prices (P<0.001) and land cultivated (P<0.1) had positive influence on cassava supply in the short-run. The short-run price elasticity was 0.38 indicating that price policies were effective in the short-run promotion of cassava production in Nigeria. However, in the long-run elasticity cassava was not responsive to price incentives significantly. This suggests that price policies are not effective in the long-run promotion of cassava production in the country owing to instability in governance and government policies.
Keywords: price, co-integration, trend analysis, change in cassava supply

Perceived factors and obstacles to cognitive schema change during economic crisis
Ana Arzenšek, 2011, original scientific article

Abstract: The main objective is to present the perceived factors in cognitive schema change as experienced by participants from two Slovenian sectors and to compare them with factors from schema change theory in order to evaluate specific circumstances and obstacles to effective cognitive schema change. 31 interviews with participants from six companies were conducted twice during the 2008 economic crisis. The prevalent perceived antecedents of schema change lie within an organisation and in the business environment. Stimulating factors are also economic and financial crises and personal characteristics. The prevalent obstacles to schema change, as perceived by participants, are stability of current cognitive schemas, personal characteristics of management, and rigidity.
Keywords: cognitive schema, change, factors, obstacles, economic crisis

Rural amenity and rural change in temperate Australia
Neil Argent, Matthew Tonts, Roy Jones, John Hubert Holmes, 2009, original scientific article

Abstract: Many rural areas in the developed world are experiencing planning and development challenges related to processes of population change. The nature, direction and regional manifestations of these changes are strongly related to the varying levels of local amenity. These result from the qualities of the local social, economic and physical environments and contribute to the ability of rural regions to attract and retain residents. In turn the presence or absence of this attractive ability is likely to engender development and sustainability challenges related to growth, decline or (where the attractive forces are demographically specific) social mix. This paper considers these challenges in the context of high amenity rural regions in temperate Australia.
Keywords: rural amenity, migration, temperate Australia, counter urbanisation, demographic change

Livestock revolution in tropical monsoon countries
Nizamuddin Khan, Asif Iqubal, Anisur Rehman, 2011, review article

Abstract: Livestock husbandry is one of the important demand driven sectors of agriculture in the world. It acts as a global resource in the form of food, income, nutrients, employment, insurance, clothing and others purposes. It plays a vital role in socio-economic development of the farmers. Demand of livestock products is increasing on account of increasing population, changing food habits of the middle class population and urbanization in developing Asian countries. This paper seeks to understand the pattern of growth of livestock number as well as their products and to identify the issues and challenges emerged on account of dynamics in livestock husbandry in Monsoon Asian countries. By analyzing the recorded data of FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization) in different years paper enables to state that all species of livestock showed positive growth rate with the exception of sheep and pigs. Now the livestock husbandry showing the structural change i.e. in general it is shifting from horizontal expansion to vertical expansion in most of the study region. The livestock improved tremendously and achieved a great success in raising livestock derived products. Various issues and challenges of livestock husbandry are now deserved for academic and scientific discussion as a result of livestock revolution in world in general and tropical monsoon countries in particular.
Keywords: livestock revolution, structural change, livestock issues
