Evaluation of leaching behavior and immobilization of zinc in cement-based solidified products
Barbir Damir,Dabi? Pero,Krolo Petar
Hemijska Industrija , 2012, DOI: 10.2298/hemind120228038b
Abstract: This study has examined leaching behavior of monolithic stabilized/solidified products contaminated with zinc by performing modified dynamic leaching test. The effectiveness of cement-based stabilization/solidification treatment was evaluated by determining the cumulative release of Zn and diffusion coefficients, De. The experimental results indicated that the cumulative release of Zn decreases as the addition of binder increases. The values of the Zn diffusion coefficients for all samples ranged from 1.210-8 to 1.1610-12 cm2 s-1. The samples with higher amounts of binder had lower De values. The test results showed that cement-based stabilization/solidification treatment was effective in immobilization of electroplating sludge and waste zeolite. A model developed by de Groot and van der Sloot was used to clarify the controlling mechanisms. The controlling leaching mechanism was found to be diffusion for samples with small amounts of waste material, and dissolution for higher waste contents.

Ribarstvo : Croatian Journal of Fisheries , 2005,
Abstract: Musky octopus, Eledone moschata is widespread in the Mediterranean on various bottom types. Although it is common in fishery landings its ecology is still poorly known. The life span of this species is up to two years. Females can spawn in wide period, ranging from couple of days to few months. This study was designed as an attempt to culture octopus paralarvae and to determine food requirements of the newly hatched individuals. Fake spawning in experimental conditions was observed. Condition of eggs in the laboratory together with behaviour of the female during this experiment is described.
Financial sector and economic growth in the Republic of Croatia 1995-2005

Economic Annals , 2006, DOI: 10.2298/eka0668109n
Abstract: Financial sector in the Republic of Croatia had a strong growth between 1995 2005.g. Liberalization of financial sector in 1999 led to an increase in bank foreign debt, which resulted in a strong increase in foreign currency reserves and appreciation of the national currency. The growth of the financial sector and credit expansion have been allocated in favour of private and public consumption, but not in industry investments. GDP growth didn't have the same momentum as financial aggregates. Economic growth, after a contraction in 1999 was within the average of global economic growth. Relying on neoclassical growth model, government and central bank didn't put in place the needed set of pro-active policies. Factor allocation was solely through private bank channels financing private consumption. If the sustainable economic growth and new employment are to be major macroeconomic goals, a new macroeconomic paradigm as combination of neclassical and neokeynesians approach will be needed.
The concept of territorial organisation of Adriatic Croatia
Damir Maga?
Geoadria , 2011,
Abstract: In this work, the author’s starting point is a maximum quality and functional territorial organisation of Croatia, especially its littoral area. Adriatic Croatia, as well as Eastern (Pannonian) and Northwestern Croatia, is one of the three defined (future) Euroregions NUTS II in Croatia. It was suggested in its current territorial coverage by the Republic of Croatia, and accepted by Eurostat in 2007. It includes all littoral counties (7) of Croatia, covering 24.7 thousand km2 with 1.4 million inhabitants (2011). The paper discusses a possible differentiation of this strategic littoral Adriatic area on three functional (gravitational) regions of the third level (NUTS III) according to the criteria of the Croatian Government on efficient decentralisation and new regionalisation of Croatia. Namely, some littoral counties do not meet the European demographic criterion for statistical NUTS III region (150-800 thousand inhabitants) although, in general, Croatian counties meet this criterion. That is why the author, applying demographic, geographic, economic, administrative and other criteria, stresses the need for defining the demographically maximally coordinated three nodal-functional, i.e., gravitational regions with their centres in Rijeka, Zadar and Split. So, the Rijeka region would potentially cover Istria, Kvarner and Gorski Kotar areas with 505,000 inhabitants (2011), Zadar region would cover North Dalmatian and Lika areas with 330,000 inhabitants, and Split region would include Middle Dalmatian and Dubrovnik (South Dalmatian) areas with 578,000 inhabitants. The area of Lika is functionally and economically most optimally oriented towards Zadar, with regard to new processes of highway linking and the recent fast development of Zadar.
Slovenian-Croatian boundary: backgrounds of boundary-making and boundary-breaking in Istria regarding the contemporary boundary dispute
Damir Josipovi?
Geoadria , 2012,
Abstract: Boundary-making in Istria is an old undertaking. It has actually never ceasesed, not even today. Istrian peninsula has thus undergone substantial boundary shifts during the last couple of centuries (especially after the Venetian demise in 1797). But Istria carries its worldwide fame also due to one of probably the harshest disputes on the post-war European grounds – the Trieste territory dispute. In author's perspective, this dispute is one of the four main corner-stones of the current Slovenian-Croatian boundary dispute. The remaining three include the Kozler's boundary around Dragonja (Rokava) River, the ungraspable notions of Austrian censuses in Istria, and the narratives of partisan settlements on military jurisdiction. However, there are other very important aspects which significantly shaped the development of the dispute, but we will focus at assessing the importance of the aforementioned ones. In this sense, the analysis of the effects of the outcome of the Trieste dispute and its implications to the contemporary interstate dispute is set forth. By unveiling its material and consequently its psychological effects upon the contemporary bilateral relations, its analyses simultaneously reveals backgrounds of never answered question, why Kozler's proposed linguistic boundary around Dragonja (Rokava) River turned out to become a boundary of national character. Though nowadays disputed, there is absolutely no chance for both involved parties to substantially draw away from once decisively drawn line of a layman. Despite the fierce battle of words in Slovenian public media on whether should the interstate boundary be placed on Mirna (Quieto) or Dragonja Rivers, it will be argued here that the actual choice of the Valley of Dragonja as a boundary is by all means Slovenian. The arguments are based on extensive analyses of cartographic materials, relevant literature, documents, and statistical data.
A characterization of singular endomorphisms of a barrelled Pt k space
Damir Franeki?
International Journal of Mathematics and Mathematical Sciences , 1982, DOI: 10.1155/s0161171282000490
Abstract: The concept of topological divisor of zero has been extended to endomorphisms of a locally convex topological vector space (LCTVS). A characterization of singular endomorphisms, similar to that of Yood [1], is obtained for endomorphisms of a barrelled Pt k (fully complete) space and it is shown that each such endomorphism is a topological divisor of zero. Furthermore, properties of the adjoint of an endomorphism are characterized in terms of topological divisors of zero, and the effect of change of operator topology on such a characterization is given.
Impact of promotion children’s savings
Damir Ribi?
Tr?i?te/Market , 2008,
Abstract: Promotion activities directed at specific target groups can vary according to their type and intensity. In modern banking, where competition is very strong, it is the task of marketing experts to decide which activities to push in a specific situation depending on bank interests and financial resources available. Bank marketing in current circumstances is gaining another dimension, not only because the clients who use banking services are becoming more educated and sophisticated but also due to new legislation, intended to protect their best interests. High competition creates strong pressures on the market so banks and marketing experts must be able to produce untraditional and innovative solutions in response to a greater challenge. Through banking history, insufficient attention was paid to children entirely for the reasons of very low profitability in this segment. This area was poorly explored so there are very few researches of the activities aimed at promoting the banking products created especially for children. This paper includes a review of the researches available to the author that focus on the marketing activities directed at children through the historical development of the banking sector. By using case study methods, it describes the way in which two promotional campaigns were planned, and analyzes the course of their performance. The chosen campaigns show similarities in some elements but also certain differences that indicate the complexity of the problem of their approach, along with the need to apply greater creativity. The key elements for the (lack of) success in the campaigns with children as the target groups are identified as well as what needs to be done in order to maintain the banking market share and reinforce the bank’s image.
Measuring instruments of corporate reputation

Tr?i?te/Market , 2008,
Abstract: The subject of this paper is focused on the instruments for the measurement of corporate reputation. Recent research of the elements which influence the success of a company shows a growing interest in intangible values. Corporate reputation itself has been identified as one of the key intangible assets which create the company’s added value. Understanding of the importance of corporate reputation has been determined as a significant component of the company’s competitiveness, that is, of its competitive edge. Reputation is a normal part of our life and an integral part of our society. Our interest in the honesty and integrity of others is firmly established in all cultures and nowadays the focus of this interest is switching increasingly on companies. Corporate reputation can be acquired by means of strong, well-developed strategies, which are crucial for the opinion of stakeholders regarding future stability and competitive sustainability of the company. On the other hand, it should be emphasized that in order to manage it, corporate reputation has to be measured first. However, although the concept of corporate reputation is universally accepted and its significance has been recognized especially in the last two decades, the process of its measurement is still at an early stage and there is no universally accepted instrument for its measurement. Therefore, the author of this paper gives an overview of the instruments used for the measurement of corporate reputation which have gained a foothold through former practical usage.
Corporate reputation index: empirical research in banking sector

Tr?i?te/Market , 2012,
Abstract: This paper focuses on presenting an improved model of corporate reputation measurement. This research builds on to the research conducted so far in relation to the instruments used for measuring corporate reputation. It aimed at widening the current theoretical knowledge and research on the instrument of bank reputation measurement, on the impact of individual aspects of business on the reputation of banks as well as on the impact of reputation on attaining competitive advantage. Accordingly, the main issues in this research were the understanding of dimensions of bank reputation measurement as well as the understanding of the direction and intensity of a bank’s reputation in relation to attaining its competitive advantage. Moreover, the aim was to suggest and test an improved model of corporate reputation measurement. A corporate reputation index (indeks reputacije poduze a, IRP) – an improved model of measuring corporate reputation developed in this work, is firmly based on the current instruments used for measuring corporate reputation which are founded on the concept of social expectations. The model was tested through regression and SEM analysis. The data necessary for the empirical analysis was obtained through the CATI method of research on a sample of 798 respondents. Research results show unambiguously that a bank’s relations with its stakeholders contribute to its reputation. Therefore, it is justifiable to include them in the instrument used for measuring corporate reputation. On the other hand, the results show that the vision and leadership of the bank’s top figures do not contribute to its reputation. Although it is not possible to generalize the findings in relation to all the users of banking sector services, thanks to the size of the sample, they can be considered as indicative of the population of the Republic of Croatia. Future research, as a response to critique by certain authors, should include research on other groups of stakeholders – primarily employees, by using the model presented here.
