The employee as the unknown actor?
Olaf Kranz, Thomas Steger, Ronald Hartz, 2016, original scientific article

Abstract: Background and purpose: Although employee share ownership (ESO) deserves of a long tradition, we still know little about employees’ perspectives about ESO. The lack of knowledge about the employees’ attitudes towards ESO is discursively filled in the ESO debate. This paper challenges that deficit by carrying out a semantic analysis of the literature with the aim to identify the various actor constructions used implicitly in the ESO discourse. Design/Methodology/Approach: We conduct a semantic analysis of the ESO discourse. To unfold the order of this discourse we draw on the distinction between surface and underlying structure of communication in the sense of Michel Foucault. We interpret some semantic lead differences, a term coined by Niklas Luhmann, to constitute the underlying structure of communication. Results: We can identify six different streams on the ESO discourse’s surface level each defined by the ends pursued. The discourse’s underlying structure is made up of the distinctions production-consumption, capital-labour, and ownership-control that also determine the actor models implicitly in use. Conclusion: We can identify five different actor models implicit in the ESO discourse. While the CEE discourse differs on the surface level in as far as it is more concerned with questions of political legitimation of the privatisation process than with questions of economic efficiency, thus introducing political distinctions in the discourse rather missing in the west, it shares the underlying semantic lead differences with the Western discourse as well as the actor models anchored in those differences.

An exploration of Canadian identity in recent literary narratives of the Franklin expeditions
Victor Kennedy, 2006, original scientific article

Abstract: Sir John Franklin's three expeditions to the high Arctic in 1819, 1825, and 1845 have become the stuff of Canadian legend, enshrined in history books, songs, short stories, novels, and web sites. Franklin set out in 1845 to discover the Northwest Pass age with the most advanced technology the British Empire could muster, and disappeared forever. Many rescue explorations found only scant evidence of the Expedition, and the mystery was finally solved only recently. This paper will explore four recent fictional works on Franklin's expeditions, Stan Rogers' song "Northwest Passage", Margaret Atwood's short story "The Age of Lead", Rudy Wiebe's A Discovery of Strangers, and John Wilson's North with Franklin: the Lost Journals of James Fitzjames, to see how Franklin's ghost has haunted the hopes and values of nineteenth-century, as well as modern, Canada.
Keywords: Canadian literature, Canadian culture, expeditions, Franklin expedition, Stan Rogers, Northwest Passage, Margaret Atwood, The Age of Lead, Rudy Wiebe, Discovery of Strangers, John Wilson, North with Franklin

PB(II) AND HG(II) IONS ADSORPTION USING SURFACE MODIFIED SUPERPARAMAGNETIC IRON OXIDE NANOPARTICLES
2014, doctoral dissertation

Abstract: Cobalt ferrite (CoFe2O4) nanoparticles prepared via co-precipitation method were modified with tetraethoxysilane (TEOS) and additional funkcionalized with 3-mercaptopropyl trimethoxysilane (MPTMS) with purpose of cleaning waste water contaminated with heavy metal ions (Pb2+ and Hg2+). The influence of different experimental parameters (reaction time, reaction temperature and different TEOS:MPTMS ratios) on silica coating of CoFe2O4 nanoparticles and additional on thiol group was systematically studied. Silanes adsorb to the particle surface with alkoxy (Si(OR)4) groups at one end, while functional substituents (-SH) at the opposite end stay extended into surrounding aqueous medium and chemically interact with heavy metal contaminates. Thiol functionalized CoFe2O4 nanoparticles were characterized using IR spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction (XRD), transmission electron microscopy/high-resolution transmission electron microscopy (TEM/HRTEM), energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDXS) and vibrating-sample magnetometer (VSM). The thiol functionalized CoFe2O4 nanoparticles were used for Pb2+ and Hg2+ions adsorption from aqueous media. Effect of treatment has been demonstrated using atomic absorption spectroscopy (AAS).

(NE)MORALNOST NASILJA IN TERORIZMA V IZRAELSKO PALESTINSKEM KONFLIKTU
Aleš Kustec, 2013, undergraduate thesis

Abstract: Terorizem ima zaradi namernega škodovanja in tudi ubijanja civilistov oziroma nebojujočih izrazito negativno moralno oznako. Zato v izraelsko-palestinskem konfliktu obe strani z namenom demoniziranja nasprotne strani obtožujeta druga drugo uporabe terorizma. Na podlagi metode pojmovne in komparativne analize smo ovrednotili različne definicije terorizma ter s pomočjo metode sinteze določili primerno definicijo terorizma za izraelsko-palestinski konflikt. Glede na to definicijo in preučitev palestinskega in izraelskega nasilja smo ugotovili, da terorizem uporabljata obe strani. Palestinski terorizem je sicer medijsko veliko bolj odmeven od izraelskega. Do slednjega prihaja v okviru tako imenovanih povračilnih napadov, zato ga je veliko težje prepoznati. Kljub temu so takšni vojaški napadi, ki lahko vključujejo tudi elemente terorizma kot v primeru izraelskega napada na Gazo, imenovanem »Cast Lead«, veliko bolj smrtonosni za palestinske civiliste kot palestinski napadi za izraelske civiliste. Z uporabo načel teorije pravične vojne in kritično analizo argumentov glede moralne upravičenosti terorizma smo ugotovili, da tako palestinski kot izraelski terorizem moralno nista upravičljiva, na podlagi komparativne analize pa tudi, da je palestinski terorizem moralno manj obremenjujoč kot izraelski, saj Palestincem za razliko od Izraelcev grozi moralna katastrofa. Slednjo predstavlja prav izraelska okupacija in politika gradnje in širitve judovskih naselbin na Zasedenih palestinskih ozemljih.
Keywords: terorizem, definicija terorizma, moralna upravičenost terorizma, pravična vojna, izraelski napad na Gazo »Cast Lead«, izraelska okupacija, izraelsko-palestinski konflikt

OPTIMIRANJE DOBAVNE VERIGE V PODJETJU B/S/H HIŠNI APARATI, D.O.O., NAZARJE
Romana Markelj, 2009, undergraduate thesis

Abstract: V diplomskem delu sem predstavila optimiranje dobavne verige v podjetju EUREL Poljčane. Prvi del diplomskega dela predstavlja teoretična izhodišča, ki se nanašajo na uvajanje t.i. vitke proizvodnje, metode za uvajanje vitke proizvodnje ter principe vitkih podjetij. Opisala in opredelila sem pojem upravljanje dobavne verige, vrste dobavnih verig, globalne dobavne verige, optimiranje dobavne verige, model integracije dobavne verige, ovire pri njihovi integraciji, ključne procese v njej ter opredelila bodoče trende in usmeritve na področju optimiranja dobavnih verig. V empiričnem delu sem predstavila podjetje B/S/H Hišni aparati, osnovne podatke o podjetju, kratek zgodovinski oris podjetja, proizvodni program ter politiko in strategijo podjetja. Praktični del diplomskega dela se nanaša na optimiranje dobavne verige v podjetju EUREL Poljčane. Ta del je pravzaprav raziskovalno delo, saj je bil projekt izveden pilotno in je predstavljal osnovo za izvedbo nadaljnjih projektov optimiranja dobavnih verig vseh dobaviteljev v žarišču. Pri projektu so sodelovali tudi zunanji strokovnjaki, ki so nas usmerjali pri izvajanju različnih analiz: mapa/zemljevid vrednostnega toka, analiza vrednostnega toka, design vrednostnega toka. Izdelane analize so nam služile kot osnova za izdelavo akcijskega načrta, plana implementacije ter za dejansko implementacijo bodočega stanja. Zadnji korak optimiranja dobavne verige zajema kontrolno fazo, ki je namenjena prikazu in ovrednotenju rezultatov. Rezultati oz. koristi, ki izhajajo iz implementiranih izboljšav, se partnersko delijo med ključne udeležence dobavne verige.
