Strategic Management Accounting as a Source of Information for Value-Driven Project Management
Alina Kozarkiewicz,Monika Lada
Journal of Economics, Business and Management , 2014, DOI: 10.7763/joebm.2014.v2.122
Abstract: The main aim of this paper is to present the relevance of strategic management accounting for the contemporary projects and project-oriented organizations. Due to the fact that the modern project management is business-oriented and value–driven, it requires new sources of information. Therefore, the evolution from operational towards strategic project management accounting was demanded. The paper demonstrates the evolution of project management accounting from cost calculation and budgeting towards measuring project value for key stakeholders. On the basis of literature review it is discussed how value measurement is addressed in the most popular methods of project strategic management accounting.
Northern Labyrinth—A Key to Time, Space, Information  [PDF]

Natural Resources (NR) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/nr.2013.44042

Northern labyrinths are stone constructions of different shapes, dating back to III-I century BC. They mainly appear on capes on peninsulas and islands up to 13-25 metresabove the sea level. Their area begins from Scilly Isles (England) and in the White Sea (Russia). Opinions of scientists concerning their designation are controversial. Assumptions about their practical meaning haven’t been proved: no burials have been found underneath; fishing equipment cannot be located so far from the area of tides. Most of the scientists link labyrinths with the sphere of spiritual culture: sanctuaries, altars, sacred places, schemes of rituals and magical centers. Assumptions about calendar designation link the picture of labyrinth with schemes of orbits of the Sun, the Moon, planets and stars. However they do not explain the application of this technology. The author’s concept is based on the opposite astronomical alignment by the shade of gnomon and considers peculiarities of the geographical space of Northern regions (polar days and white nights). The aim of the research is to prove that the key to decoding the picture of a classic Northern labyrinth is a gnomon located in the centre of the construction. Field research has been conducted on Zayztskiy Island in Solovetskiy Archipelago. Experiments of imitation modeling have been done, analysis of linguistic and toponymic materials, archeological, astronomical, ethnographical and mythological and other sources has been implemented. The research has proved that observations of the shade can help to create a calendar in a shape of a bispiral labyrinth. The structure of labyrinth is convenient for defining the North, dividing daytime and defining geographical altitude of the observation point. Orientation in space and time has become the basis for navigation frame of the territory. A set of stone instruments is the key of a navigation frame of the territory. Life-essential stages of the yearly lighting are reflected in specific geometry shapes of shades. They have been preserved in mythological images of the Sun, solar symbols and modern sign systems. Languages, alphabets, numeric systems can be considered as models of geographical space and have evolved thanks to observations of the light movement. Key results of the

Navigation in Space-Time as the Basis for Information Modeling  [PDF]

Archaeological Discovery (AD) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ad.2014.23010
Abstract: The article presents the author’s concept of information modeling of the world, based on the leading role of solar navigation (orientation in space-time by the sun). The concept was developed in the course of comprehensive research on the main patterns of use of information resources (semiotics) during the exploration of nature of geographical space by humans. The objects of the study were the monuments of ancient material culture of European Russia and Southern Siberia. The applied field research methods include survey, description, observation, work with maps and Earth remote sensing, as well as methods of mathematical, conceptual modeling and mapping. Theoretical analysis is based on the theory of reflection and systemic and chorological approach, methodological statements of historical geography by V.I. Paranin.
Biomarkers and atrial fibrillation: A new paradigm for assessing the progression of left atrial endocardial remodelling  [PDF]
Philippe Chevalier, Alina Scridon
Open Journal of Clinical Diagnostics (OJCD) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ojcd.2012.22004
Abstract: Atrial fibrillation is a heterogeneous disorder that is usually characterized by paroxysmal onset, particularly in patients without structural heart disease. Defining biological markers of atrial remodelling would help identify patients at high risk who would benefit most from prophylactic treatment and careful monitoring. Biomarkers of atrial fibrillation progression would be helpful for following patients that present with asymptomatic atrial fibrillation. Notably, the roles of such markers in the pathophysiology of atrial fibrillation must be determined. Some markers may indicate the presence, complications or progression of the disease, while others may be involved in key pathological processes and thus represent novel therapeutic targets. Although a number of markers have been reported as potential predictors of paroxysmal atrial fibrillation progression towards persistent arrhythmia, their usefulness and clinical value need further validation. This report reviews several newly identified markers of atrial fibrillation progression.
Children Should Not Be Silenced  [PDF]

Early Years services in Romania have, until recently, lacked any form of national financial support. Early childhood practitioners are very low paid and the investments in training programs are insufficient. The impact on children should be considered and policy decisions should be taken, in order to grow the opportunities for training. In a world affected by financial crises, attitudes about children’s needs are very important. This research evaluates if the voices of children in Romanian preschools are heard and proposes new educational policy in order to train practitioners for preschools. The purpose of the study is to involve practitioners and parents in the Early Years in an experimental training program called: “Voices of Children in Romania”. We discovered that according to the traditional attitudes of Romanian parents and practitioners, children’s voices are rarely taken into consideration. After the new training program was put into practice in preschools and homes, teachers and parents started to give more attention to children’s voices and children’s wellbeing was improved. The study is relevant in order to increase public attention to the professional development of the early childhood workforce as a factor that can contribute to a healthy childhood.

What Students Learn about Recognizing Children’s Capability  [PDF]
Mag Alina Georgeta
Creative Education (CE) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2018.915184
Abstract: Recognition of the role and contribution to children’s learning and development of those who are trained to work in the early years is long overdue and welcomed, although the contentiousness?and questions of how to prepare students still need to be addressed. The aim of this study was to investigate what disciplines from the curricula of the Teacher Training Department, inside “Lucian Blaga” University of Sibiu allow?students to identify the effective ways of recognizing children’s capabilities. The methods used were interview, observation and focus groups. 20 teachers and 50 students were engaged with this challenging work. The qualitative analyses of the data collected proved that this topic is mainly mentioned, but not enough trained. Findings revealed that curricula need serious improvements topreparestudentsto meet the needs of children. The focus groups organized allowteachers and students involved to reflect on their own ideas, experiences and ways of practicing. The study offered opportunities to reflect on new ways of teaching and learning, tosupport students with a curriculum that highlights children’ rights and capabilities.

Abstract: Sometimes considered an asset, other times a liability, the Black Sea started recently to be regarded as a region. However, the Black Sea Region lacks a common vision, often due to the complicated and often inefficient nexus of regional cooperation initiatives. Following the logic of finding regional solutions for regional problems, this paper aims to assess existing institutional and regional initiatives, reflecting on the implications for the success of Black Sea regionalism in creating patterns of sustained and sustainable development and a high degree of actors' involvement.This paper concentrates on two complementary research questions: What is the regional order in the BSR and what does it imply for its future? What is the current contribution of the most significant cooperation initiatives and what are the consequences for regional institutionalism? For the purpose of this paper, I draw on best-practices from other two regions: the Northern Dimension and South- East Asia. Through a comparative perspective, I suggest an analysis of the most important initiatives: BSEC, CDC, Black Sea Synergy, Eastern Partnership, Baku Initiative and the BSF. This paper argues that a possible strategic solution for successful policy development lies in the creation of an integrated regional cooperation package, functioning on the principles of multi-speed and multi-dimensional cooperation in several policy fields, in a context in which the BSR seems to be caught between two paradigms: a European and a Russian-oriented one.
Entre mémoire, histoire et fiction : les récits de vie des écrivains roumains de l’après-guerre dans le contexte socioculturel post-totalitaire
Alina Crihan?
Synergies Roumanie , 2011,
Abstract: à partir de l’idée selon laquelle les vérités inhérentes à tout récit personnel naissent d’un véritable ancrage dans le monde, dans ce qui fait la vie - les passions, […] les idées, les systèmes conceptuels , les histoires individuelles exprimant, autant d’efforts pour saisir la confusion et la complexité de la condition humaine (R. Josselson), notre travail se fonde sur une démarche interdisciplinaire dont l’enjeu fondamental est l’analyse et l’interprétation des récits de vie publiés par les écrivains roumains dans le contexte socioculturel post-totalitaire, du point de vue de leur engagement dans le champ culturel circonscrit à une histoire obsédante . L’article se donne pour but, en particulier, une analyse des rapports entre l’auteur / narrateur et la grande histoire , entre l’histoire personnelle et sa mise en intrigue , entre l’identité réelle et l’identité narrative , et aussi des modalités de configuration de certains scénarios identitaires fondés sur la reconfiguration de l’histoire hypostasiée.
