Fabrication of poly(ethylene furanoate)/silver and titanium dioxide nanocomposites with improved thermal and antimicrobial properties
Johan Stanley, Eleftheria Xanthopoulou, Lidija Fras Zemljič, Panagiotis A. Klonos, Apostolos Kyritsis, Dimitra A. Lambropoulou, Dimitrios Bikiaris, 2024, original scientific article

Abstract: Poly(ethylene furanoate) (PEF)-based nanocomposites were fabricated with silver (Ag) and titanium dioxide (TiO2) nanoparticles by the in-situ polymerization method. The importance of this research work is to extend the usage of PEF-based nanocomposites with improved material properties. The PEF-Ag and PEF-TiO2 nanocomposites showed a significant improvement in color concentration, as determined by the color colorimeter. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) photographs revealed the appearance of small aggregates on the surface of nanocomposites. According to crystallinity investigations, neat PEF and nanocomposites exhibit crystalline fraction between 0–6%, whereas annealed samples showed a degree of crystallinity value above 25%. Combining the structural and molecular dynamics observations from broadband dielectric spectroscopy (BDS) measurements found strong interactions between polymer chains and nanoparticles. Contact angle results exhibited a decrease in the wetting angle of nanocomposites compared to neat PEF. Finally, antimicrobial studies have been conducted, reporting a significant rise in inhibition of over 15% for both nanocomposite films against gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria. From the overall results, the synthesized PEF-based nanocomposites with enhanced thermal and antimicrobial properties may be optimized and utilized for the secondary packaging (unintended food-contact) materials.
Keywords: active agents, antimicrobial studies, biobased polymers, crystallinity, poly(ethylene 2, 5-furandicarboxylate)

Modernization, collectivism, and gender equality predict love experiences in 45 countries
Piotr Sorokowski, Marina Horvat, Tina Kavčič, Bojan Musil, Maja Zupančič, 2023, original scientific article

Abstract: Recent cross-cultural and neuro-hormonal investigations have suggested that love is a near universal phenomenon that has a biological background. Therefore, the remaining important question is not whether love exists worldwide but which cultural, social, or environmental factors influence experiences and expressions of love. In the present study, we explored whether countries’ modernization indexes are related to love experiences measured by three subscales (passion, intimacy, commitment) of the Triangular Love Scale. Analyzing data from 9474 individuals from 45 countries, we tested for relationships with country-level predictors, namely, modernization proxies (i.e., Human Development Index, World Modernization Index, Gender Inequality Index), collectivism, and average annual temperatures. We found that mean levels of love (especially intimacy) were higher in countries with higher modernization proxies, collectivism, and average annual temperatures. In conclusion, our results grant some support to the hypothesis that modernization processes might influence love experiences.
Keywords: love, modernization, collectivism, gender equality, cross-cultural studies

Aquaponics for the Anthropocene : towards a "sustainability first" agenda
James Gott, Rolf Morgenstern, Maja Turnšek, 2019, independent scientific component part or a chapter in a monograph

Abstract: ‘The Anthropocene’ has emerged as a unique moment in earth history where humanity recognises its devastating capacity to destabilise the planetary processes upon which it depends. Modern agriculture plays a central role in this problematic. Food production innovations are needed that exceed traditional paradigms of the Green Revolution whilst at the same time are able to acknowledge the complexity arising from the sustainability and food security issues that mark our times. Aquaponics is one technological innovation that promises to contribute much towards these imperatives. But this emergent field is in an early stage that is characterised by limited resources, market uncertainty, institutional resistance and high risks of failure—a developmental environment where hype prevails over demonstrated outcomes. Given this situation, the aquaponics research community potentially holds an important place in the development path of this technology. But the field needs to craft a coherent and viable vision for this technology that can move beyond misplaced techno-optimist accounts. Turning to sustainability science and STS research, we discuss the urgent need to develop what we call a ‘critical sustainability knowledge’ for aquaponics, giving pointers for possible ways forward, which include (1) expanding aquaponic research into an interdisciplinary research domain, (2) opening research up to participatory approaches in real-world contexts and (3) pursuing a solution-oriented approach for sustainability and food security outcomes.
Keywords: aquaponics, anthropocene, green revolution, Techno-optimism, STS research, Science and technology studies

Development of tourism research
Marjetka Rangus, Boštjan Brumen, 2016, original scientific article

Abstract: The relative short history of tourism research is characterised by an ongoing debate on whether tourism is in fact an independent academic field with its own disciplinary matrix and standardisation of knowledge. On the other hand, the evidence shows that the categorisation of journals in the tourism field (together with hospitality, leisure and sport) in the JCR and Scopus internationally recognised indexed databases is a de facto form of recognition of the scientific status of "tourism". Publishing activities of Slovenian authors are analysed in order to support the need for Slovenian bibliographical databases to follow this trend and introduce a new categorisation to the Cobiss and Sicris databases.
Keywords: tourism, tourism research, indexing of publication, tourism studies

Book of abstracts of the 2nd International Scientific Conference Teaching Methods for Economics and Business Sciences, 7. May 2018, Maribor, Slovenia : Teaching Methods for Economics and Business Sciences
2018, other monographs and other completed works

Abstract: Today’s global business environment is faced with complex and multidisciplinary issues. As business schools educate new generations of business people who will need to deal with these issues, the teachers at these institutions need to constantly innovate their teaching methods and approaches in order to pass relevant knowledge about business practices, processes and environments to their students. New, innovative approaches to teaching economics- and business-related subjects are thus essential to spark our students' curiosity and innovativeness and to develop their professional competences and skills so that our graduates, once employed, will have a positive impact on the economy as well as on the society. This book presents the abstracts of the 2nd International Scientific Conference »Teaching Methods for Economics and Business Sciences« held on 7 May 2018 at the University of Maribor, Faculty of Economics and Business. I would like to express my thanks to all authors who submitted their work for this conference in our common response to the above challenges.
Keywords: higher education, teaching practice, teaching methods, economics and business studies, students

Mirror image properties in human languages
Ireneusz Kida, 2009, original scientific article

Abstract: In this paper I discuss the phenomenon of mirror image properties in human languages. I give examples from English, Polish, Malay, Gothic, Latin and Classical Greek. Although I take into consideration only a few languages, my paper has further implications, namely, that mirror image properties exist in any language of the world. I start with a description of the natural phenomenon of mirror image and then extend my discussion to language. I talk about mirror image sentences, reduplication, and palindromes.
Keywords: linguistics, grammar, symmetry, duplication, mirror images, palindromes, comparative studies
