Impact of Extreme Meteorological Phenomena on Soil Water Storage of Slovakia Typical Lowland Site
Katarína Stehlová,Vlastatekauerová
Agriculturae Conspectus Scientificus (ACS) , 2006,
Abstract: Change of the hydrologic cycle on the Earth is closely connected to the climate change caused by global warming of the atmosphere. The conditions in natural ecosystem in agricultural areas are changing. Both surface water resources and the soil water store react to the prospective changes. Some areas in Slovakia witness extreme maximum, minimum or are lack of precipitation much more frequently. The maximum of precipitation result in flooding and the minimum in excessive soil drying. In this paper actual soil water storage measured by neutron probe in period 1999-2004 at lowland region, specifically in locality Bodiky, is shown. Amount of water in unsaturated soil zone for soil layers 0-30 cm and 30-60 are assessed with regard to precipitation totals and temperature.Furthermore, the impact of climate change to the soil water storage is solved. Numerical simulation was calculated using mathematical model GLOBAL. Calculation of soil water storage has been determined for daily time step for 30-years reference period (1955-84) and for the time horizons 2010, 2030 2075.Climate parameters for time horizons 2010, 2030 and 2075 were modified for climate scenarios CCCM2000 and GISS98.
Comparison of the monitored and modeled soil water storage of the upper soil layer: the influence of soil properties and groundwater table level
Július útor, Vlasta tekauerová, Viliam Nagy
Journal of Hydrology and Hydromechanics , 2010, DOI: 10.2478/v10098-010-0026-9
Abstract: In the study of Tomlain (1997) a soil water balance model was applied to evaluate the climate change impacts on the soil water storage in the Hurbanovo locality (Southwestern Slovakia), using the climate change scenarios of Slovakia for the years 2010, 2030, and 2075 by the global circulation models CCCM, GISS and GFD3. These calculations did not take into consideration neither the various soil properties, nor the groundwater table influence on soil water content. In this study, their calculated data were compared with those monitored at the same sites. There were found significant differences between resulting soil water storage of the upper 100 cm soil layer, most probably due to cappilary rise from groundwater at sites 2 and 3. It was shown, that the soil properties and groundwater table depth are importat features strongly influencing soil water content of the upper soil layer; thus the application of the soil water balance equation (Eq. (1)), neglecting the above mentioned factors, could lead to the results far from reality.
Comparative Analysis of Cartographic Literacy in the Selected Curricula at the Primary Level  [PDF]
Vlasta Hus, Tina Hojnik
Creative Education (CE) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2013.412107
Abstract: Basic knowledge of maps, because of its widespread use, has become a part of the individual’s modern literacy. This is why we were interested in how this kind of literacy is represented in schools, when it occurs and how it is upgraded. Based on the study of literature we have formed criteria of cartographic literacy and based on the comparative method we have compared curricula for the lower stage of primary education of two countries (England and Slovenia). We found that cartographic literacy is given most attention, as well as in content as in didactic recommendations, in the Slovene curriculum for Social Studies (second triad). But according to the pupils’ cognitive abilities, it is being introduced too late. In the English curriculum for Geography initial cartography is far more dependent on the teachers and their cartography knowledge (or lack of it) because of the general definition of objectives and lack of recommendations. A combination of such an open curriculum and teacher’s cartography knowledge (or lack of it) can push cartographic literacy a step back from other content. That is why educating teachers and paying attention to the matter either in the curriculum or in textbook sets is of utmost importance.
Development of ICT competences in the environmental studies subject in Slovenia

World Journal on Educational Technology , 2011,
Abstract: Digital literacy is one of eight key competences that were defined by the European Parliament and Council as those that member states should develop as a part of their strategies for lifelong learning (Official Journal of the European Union, 2006, p.11). It would contribute to a more successful life in a knowledge society. The purpose of this paper is to Npresent the results of empirical research on the use of ICT in the lessons of the environmental studies subject in the first triennium of primary schools in the Republic of Slovenia. Data were collected through a questionnaire and according to the protocol. We found that among all of the ICT tools, teachers mostly use the computer. The majority of the teachers use the computer once a week, most often in mathematics and environmental studies subject. In the observed lessons of the environmental studies subject, less than half of teachers use the computer in the lessons. This was followed by the use of computer and the LCD projector, and the interactive whiteboard. Among the obstacles that teachers indicate when they try to include ICT in the learning process are insufficient, out of date equipment, lack of time and lack of their own competence.
IS Audit Considerations in Respect of Current Economic Environment

Journal of Systems Integration , 2011,
Abstract: Accountancy organizations, regulatory bodies, standard setters, and other international organizations have developed guidance, articles, frameworks and resources on issues related to the global financial crisis. Now there is a clear and widely accepted need for more rigorous governance over companies′ systems of internal control. Historically there exist many different activities aiming to support effective enterprise governance (legislative acts, best practices, standards, frameworks). But all these activities may have reinforced the already-existing focus on enterprise governance, but they did not necessarily bring clarity to the topic. Therefore we can currently notice some changes aiming to improve the adoption and adaptation of best practices and standards within the area of enterprise governance. The paper discusses the changes in the Enterprise Governance of IT/IS, audit/assurance evolution, and intended Cobit improvements.

Journal of Systems Integration , 2013,
Abstract: We are living in time where the impact on continuity still grows both on the side our personal lives and business activities. In the same time different international, regional, national, state and private organizations initiated to provide different actions and regulations in order to find the best solutions of this situation. The result is that there exist the whole set of different views over this problem. The main aim of this article is to map this situation, to provide the general framework of business continuity management (BCM) and to discuss its main parts and their mutual relationships. Special impact is given to the integration of the business and IT oriented solutions and ways of assurance initiatives helping managers to assess the implemented solutions and their compliance to the business strategy and other existing regulations.
Future Primary School Teachers Attitudes toward Intercultural and Bilingual Education in Primary Schools  [PDF]
Vlasta Hus, Polona Jan?i? Hegedi?
Creative Education (CE) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2018.916221
Abstract: This article analyses the attitudes of future primary school teachers, who, are currently students of the elementary education programme, toward intercultural and bilingual education. The problem is examined from three different aspects, the opinion of the students concerning the applicability of intercultural and bilingual education, advantages and disadvantages of intercultural and bilingual education and, lastly the knowledge of intercultural and bilingual education in bilingual primary schools. Interculturalism?is?a current topic?in?society today and can be presented as an ethnic-political project that aims at solving problems of co-existing in multi-ethnic societies. Intercultural education is therefore an opportunity and a reason to change educational approaches. A key element for providing lessons that include elements of intercultural education is bilingual education as well as a highly qualified primary school teacher. The research shows that the future primary school teachers believe to have good knowledge of intercultural and bilingual education and believe this way of educating to be the most appropriate and useful for the children of minorities to learn a foreign language. The participating future teachers stated students’ ability to speak more languages and gaining multi- and intercultural experiences as the advantages of intercultural and bilingual education. Half of participating future teachers do not recognize any disadvantages of intercultural and bilingual education, while others recognize additional teachers’ obligations and possible specific students’ learning problems as a potential disadvantage.

Stroke Research and Treatment , 2012, DOI: 10.1155/2012/382361
Abstract: Transcranial Doppler can detect microembolic signals which are characterized by unidirectional high intensity increase, short duration, random occurrence, and a “whistling” sound. Microembolic signals have been detected in a number of clinical settings: carotid artery stenosis, aortic arch plaques, atrial fibrillation, myocardial infarction, prosthetic heart valves, patent foramen ovale, valvular stenosis, during invasive procedures (angiography, percutaneous transluminal angioplasty), surgery (carotid, cardiopulmonary bypass, orthopedic), and in certain systemic diseases. Microembolic signals are frequent in large artery disease, less commonly detected in cardioembolic stroke, and infrequent in lacunar stroke. This article provides an overview about the current state of technical and clinical aspects of microembolus detection. 1. Introduction 1.1. Clinical Aspects Acute stroke is one of the leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. In developed countries, stroke ranks as either second or third most common cause of death and embolization is the cause of ischemic stroke in 40%–80% of cases [1]. TCD is a sensitive technique for real-time detection of microembolic signals (MESs). In the last 20 years, a substantial number of studies dealing with emboli detection have been carried out, showing that MES are proven to represent emboli passing within cerebral circulation. MES have been detected in a number of clinical conditions: carotid artery stenosis, aortic arch plaques, atrial fibrillation, myocardial infarction, prosthetic heart valves, patent foramen ovale, valvular stenosis, during carotid surgery, surgery on open heart, stent implantation, percutaneous transluminal angioplasty and angiography, and in patients with migraine and patent foramen ovale (PFO). Patients who have detectable MES, especially in larger number, should be considered as high-risk patients for stroke. MES detection may help in localization of embolic source, identification of patients with high stroke risk, monitoring during invasive procedures and surgery, and monitoring of the effectiveness of therapy. Consensus on MES detection by TCD has been established [2]; MES can be identified as short lasting (<0.01–0.03?s), unidirectional intensity increase, and intensity increase (>3?dB) within the Doppler frequency spectrum; intensity increase is focused around 1 frequency. MESs appear randomly within the cardiac cycle and produce a “whistle,” “chirping,” or “clicking” sound when passing through the sample volume. 1.2. Technical Aspects TCD is a very convenient tool to monitor

Marjeta Oven,Vlasta Zabukovec
Knji?nica : Revija za Podro?je Bibliotekarstva in Informacijske Znanosti , 2005,
Abstract: Lifelong learning is becoming an important part in the development of modern society.In the lifelong learning society endeavours are being made for the education of all individuals regardless of their social and/or economic background. Lifelong learning should,therefore, be regarded as a permanent activity and as such, a significant element of socialization, inspired by common values. It represents a dynamic interaction with cultural, working and social environment. In this respect, the role of motivation should be specifically emphasized, as it can explain the causes for human behaviour.
