For centuries, insects have been used as food due to their availability and easiness in raising that is much less burdensome for environment than animal husbandry breeding. Mealworm (Tenebrio molitor L.) is a store-pest of which larvae are consumed by people. The aim of the work was to determine the nutritional value of larvae of mealworm (Tenebrio molitor L.). The material was a three-month-old mealworm larva 25 -30 mmin length. Larvae were boiled for 3 min and next dried in 60℃. Contents of water, ash, minerals, protein, fat and fat acids profile have been determined. Fresh larvae contained 56% of water, 18% of total protein, 22% of total fat and 1.55% of ash. High contents of minerals were found in the larvae: magnesium (87.5 mg/100g), zinc (4.2 mg/100g), iron (3.8 mg/100g), copper (0.78 mg/100g) and manganese (0.44 mg/100g). The proportion of n-6/n-3 fatty acids was very advantageous and amounted to 6.76. Larvae powder contained twice higher content of protein, fat, ash and minerals. Larva of mealworm is a valuable source of nutrients in amounts more profitable for human organism than traditional meat food. Powdered larva is a high-grade product to be applied as a supplement to traditional meals.

State Based Determinants of Inward FDI Flow in the US Economy  [PDF]
Lucyna Kornecki, EM. Ekanayake
Modern Economy (ME) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/me.2012.33040
Abstract: Inward foreign direct investment (FDI) represents an integral part of the U.S. economy. The flow of international capital has been a key factor expanding economy. The inward U.S. FDI constitutes important factor contributing to output growth in the U.S. economy. This paper investigates factors affecting the inward FDI flow among fifty states of the United States. The analysis uses annual data for the period from 1997 to 2007. The study identifies several state-specific determinants of FDI and investigates the changes in their importance during the study period. Our results show that among the major determinants, the real per capita income, real per capita expenditure on education, FDI related employment, research and development expenditure, and capital expenditure are found to have a significant positive impact on FDI inflows. There is also evidence that the share of scientists and engineers in the workforce exerts a small positive impact on inward FDI flow. In addition, per capita state taxes, unit labor cost, manufacturing density, unionizetion, and unemployment rate exert a negative impact on FDI inflows.
Pollutant concentrations from deciduous wood fuelled heat station

Chemical and Process Engineering , 2011, DOI: 10.2478/v10176-011-0004-8
Abstract: CO, NO, NO2 and dust concentrations from combustion of deciduous wood (birch, beech, lime-tree) logs and pellets in two heating boilers (15 and 25 KW), situated in a heat station were investigated. Time dependences of pollutant concentrations as well as the impact of temperature in the combustion chamber and oxygen concentration on pollutant concentrations were presented. Pollutant emission indices have been estimated.

Physics , 2009,
Abstract: The NuWro Neutrino Event Generator developed by the Wroclaw Neutrino Group (WNG) is lightweight but full featured. It handles all interaction types important in neutrino-nucleus scattering as well as DIS hadronization and intranuclear cascade. Its input file, by default params.txt, is a plain text file and the output file, by default eventsout.root, is a root file which can be analyzed by means of the included myroot program, or by standard root, after loading supplied dictionary library event1.so.

Mathematics , 1999,
Abstract: The co-Lie structures compatible with the osp(2|2) Lie super algebra structure are investigated and found to be all of coboundary type. The corresponding classical r-matrices are classified into several disjoint families. The osp(1|2)+u(1) Lie super-bialgebras are also classified.
Economization of public services sector and its consequences
Ewa Polak,Waldemar Polak
Contemporary Economy , 2013,
Abstract: The work is devoted to the analysis of the process of human life’s economization Processes taking place in the economic sphere nowadays, affect the social changes in the essential way, affect both the condition of an individual and on relationships between people. The main force of the socio-cultural transformation is scientific-technological progress, especially in the communication and transport as well as promoting the principles of governing the liberal market economy by global economic actors. Neo-liberal market economy and the values and attitudes associated with it (freedom, individualism, competition, mobility, flexibility, striving at all costs to success, especially material) affect the political sphere (economization of politics, marketization of democracy) cultural (the dominance of the commercialized consumer culture) and social (destruction of traditional social structures, disintegration, dehumanisation and commercialization of human relationships and cultural patterns). Commercialized consumer culture is accompanied with marketization and economization of all spheres of life and social relations. Everything could be buying: education, safety, care, treatment and longer life. Life itself is also commercializing, insurance companies, employers, companies offering on the market different goods and services assign a specific monetary value to life. People are judged by perspective of consumer behaviour, and products suited to the cultural meaning. Traditional values are replaced by market, commercial values.

The new map department in the National Library of Poland and the first steps to the automation of cataloguing its collections
Lucyna Szaniawska
Liber Quarterly : The Journal of European Research Libraries , 2003,
Abstract: In 1961, when the Krasinski Palace (the Palace of the Republic) was rebuilt, it was given to the National Library's use. All the departments of the Division of Special Collections were placed in the Palace, including the map department. In 1963 the government made a decision to construct a new building for the National Library of Poland. In the beginning it was planned to move all the collections from the buildings, which they had occupied before, placed in three different districts of Warsaw (including the Division of Special Collections) to the new National Library's building. Its construction started in 1977. But during the works on the site and the move of the collections of books and periodicals dating from the 19th and 20th centuries, it became obvious that those departments, and in particular, their collections, took up too much space, and there was no room for them all. So new plans of enlarging the new building of the National Library were made, but the economic crisis which we are now going through in our country has postponed its development until the distant future. Until now, there is still a remaining part of the Division of Special Collections in the Krasinski Palace, the departments which preserve collections of manuscripts, early printed books, graphics and drawings. Special grand exhibitions are also held in the beautiful baroque rooms there.

Liber Quarterly : The Journal of European Research Libraries , 1999,
Abstract: I would like to present an outline of the Horizon system, its history, environment, and state of implementation at the Nicholas Copernicus University Library in Toru at the moment, and the situation in the Map Department. Horizon is a third generation system (i.e. one of the latest of several library management systems) marketed by Ameritech Library Services, a subsidiary of the Ameritech Corporation, one of the world’s largest communication companies. The new system Horizon was built on the Marquis, Dynix library system, and is being developed by Ameritech Library Service in collaboration with the University of Chicago and Indiana University. It was first introduced in the USA in 1991. By August 1998, Horizon had been installed in about 570 libraries, located in the USA, Canada, Mexico, South America, Australia, New Zealand, Thailand, China, Saudi Arabia and many European countries. The first library in Europe to use this system was Technische Fachhochschule in Berlin.
