THE 8TH AND 9TH GRADES STUDENTS’ ATTITUDE
Monica Stefan,Florentina Ciomo
Acta Didactica Napocensia , 2010,
Abstract: The students’ interest and attitude towards Physics have been the object of internationaltesting, the most recent of which is the PISA testing from 2006. The students’ attitude towards sciences isconsidered to be a significant predictor of their school results in science, respectively of pursuing a careerin areas related to Science. The present paper had in view to discover the existence of convergences ordivergences among the attitudes of the students in 8th and 9th grade towards the study of natural sciencesand towards the teacher’s role in studying for the natural sciences. The obtained results have not renderedevidently the existence of major differences but have allowed for the shaping of a profile for Physics as aschool subject, from the interviewees’ perspective. Thus, Physics is considered to be a difficult butpleasant and interesting subject, with use for oneself but for others as well. Our investigation has pointedout the fact that the students study too little for Physics at home, but that the Physics teacher is effectivein teaching and motivating the students to learn. Although this is a pilot research project, ourinvestigation signals a state of fact that implies reflection, mainly on the Physics curriculum but also onthe teaching methods.
SERVICIILE PUBLICE LOCALE IN CONTEXT EUROPEAN (I)
Vasile CIOMO
Revista Transilvan? de ?tiin?e Administrative , 2004,
Abstract: In the perspective of the Romania’s integration in the European Union, the elaboration of the local public services’ sustainable development strategy is of high importance. Municipal services are part of the common values of the EU members and constitute a pillar of the European society model. Most of them are provided by public utilities. The organization, setting up and functioning procedures, as well as the level of local authorities’ control are different from one country to another. Unified procedures are now under development at European Commission level. In Romania, the local authorities are charged to provide the municipal services, according to the law. From legal point of view, most of the operators are autonomous regains or commercial companies. The population’s access to these services is yet quite limited and their quality is often poor. In this respect, Romania’s integration in the EU will require important efforts, including the concepts’ harmonization.
PRICE ELASTICITY OF THE RESIDENTIAL WATER DEMAND. CASE-STUDY: INVESTMENT PROJECT IN CLUJ COUNTY, ROM NIA
Vasile Iuliu CIOMO,Dorin Marcel CIATAR??,Alina-Oana CIOMO
Transylvanian Review of Administrative Sciences , 2012,
Abstract: In Romania, local authorities and the newly established Regional Operators, one of them being S.C. Compania de Ap Some S.A., are required to fully comply with EU regulations concerning water and wastewater quality. In order to meet these requirements in due time, a lot of investment projects have to be prepared and implemented. The nancing of these investments requires a progressive increase of the tariffs. In the last ten years, in Romania, the tariffs for the water services have been signi cantly augmented, more than in any other East European country. In the same time, a substantial reduction of the residential water consumption, measured in liters per capita per day, has been observed.In this article, the price elasticity of residential water demand for water services was analyzed, given its importance in the framework of the feasibility studies for investments to be made in order to insure compliance with EU water and wastewater Directives. In the same time, considerations with regard to the evolution of the tariff for water services and of the residential water demand are provided, with the aim of better explaining the context in which these variables evolve.
The Coordinates of the Creative Accountancy Practices in the Background of the Romanian Economy
Florentina MOISESCU
Risk in Contemporary Economy , 2012,
Abstract: In Romania, where the inflation nucleus is omnipresent and the exchequer taxes are a curse for the development of the enterprises causing a ‘leak’ in the budget of its substance, the re-treatment techniques of the financial situations have become a ‘bridge of despairs’. Seen in this background, creative accountancy is the process that manipulates the accounting figures due to the breach existence in the rules, and, by taking advantage of flexibility, those measurement and informational practices are to be chosen thus allowing a change within the synthesis documents from what they should be into what the managers really want them to be, or the process that enables transactions to classify in such a way that they allow getting the accounting outcome desired. By its meaning and effects, using creative accountancy is difficult to be identified. Just as difficult is getting creative monetary situations corrected in the view of some relevant decisions. The main source of information about the making up of the accounts is represented by the accounting politics situation enclosed in the annexes. However, the accountant will never enclose in the annexes the information concerning the fact that he has made use of creative accounting methods or about the way in which these can be traced back.

Economia : Seria Management , 2012,
Abstract: This study aims to offer an overview of the current status of organic farming in Romania and European Union. Items related to organic farming are approached, namely: conceptual framework, principles, national and community legislative and regulatory framework, sustaining policy of organic farming, as well as the comparative analysis of organic farming sector in Romania and other states of the European Union.
Euthanasia – a Contemporary Issue
Florentina PUSC?
Acta Universitatis Danubius : Juridica , 2010,
Abstract: The right to life is one of the fundamental rights of people that have to be respected and protected by each state’s legislation. The connection between the right to life and criminal law is a significant one, as the Criminal Code incriminates a few categories of crimes that can prejudice it. Although that as an object of crimes against life, a person’s life is recognized, the right to life remains a value that can suffer from criminal attempts. Often, in literature, the correlation or the relation between certain criminal acts is discussed, such as the genocide, illegal abortion, euthanasia, infanticide and the right to life, the possibility of mutual influence and their coexistence. Furthermore, the problem ofeuthanasia involves also the examination of practical and juridical connotations connected to the free accomplishment of the human fundamental rights and the right to life in particular. Can thecompatibility or the incompatibility of euthanasia with the right to law be decisive? The answer can only be an affirmative one, as through this approach the judicial statute and the scope of euthanasia can be determined.
Society and Security
FLORENTINA FUNIERU
Revista Roman? de Sociologie , 2011,
Abstract: The study emphasizes the most important theories in the field of security studies and is concerned with the threats directed at the supportive elements of human communities which are less visible than the traditional ones. They are accompanied by a force that conquers mental spaces and changes the individual's self-awareness, namely that of the social will. This study discusses the societal security of the social will on a historical time axis, beginning with the 12th century (when social authority, temporal power, is separated from the authority of the Church, from spiritual power), followed by a second historical moment of the deconstruction of social frames, which occurred in the 19th century (that of the romantic culture, as reaction to the rationalist individualist trend), and by the year 1989, a third moment of rupture analyzed in comparison with the others.
Proposals for adaptation to new economic change through the promotion and selection of holiday villages in Romania
Florentina MIU
Scientific Bulletin : Economic Sciences , 2011,
Abstract: Any settlement that is chosen to promote rural tourism is based on the following fundamental components: the centre of the village where most households are concentrated and which expresses the economic functions of the village; its outskirts (work area) is the land beyond the center of the village that supports all agricultural occupations, craft, trade, tourism; the population is represented by demographic indicators: birth rate, mortality, natural growth, morbidity, density. Identification and selection criteria for tourist villages are the potential of rhe natural environment composed of natural elements with great appeal, variety of landscapes (mountain, Alpine hills, lakes, delta), ambient aesthetic beauty (slopes, canyons, gorges, caves), wildlife hunting, forests; accessibility is dependent on geographical location in the territory and the main communication routes that connect with the nearest urban centers. Also, the presence of cultural and ethnographic elements are the most attractive ones for tourists; demographic and economic potential have an important role in the development of rural tourism in a village through: supporting agricultural and non-agricultural occupations, transmission of traditions and customs from generation to generation; preserving environmental quality has become an important milestone for the selection and preservation of rural tourist elements.
Consistent covariate selection and post model selection inference in semiparametric regression
Florentina Bunea
Mathematics , 2004, DOI: 10.1214/009053604000000247
Abstract: This paper presents a model selection technique of estimation in semiparametric regression models of the type Y_i=\beta^{\prime}\underbarX_i+f(T_i)+W_i, i=1,...,n. The parametric and nonparametric components are estimated simultaneously by this procedure. Estimation is based on a collection of finite-dimensional models, using a penalized least squares criterion for selection. We show that by tailoring the penalty terms developed for nonparametric regression to semiparametric models, we can consistently estimate the subset of nonzero coefficients of the linear part. Moreover, the selected estimator of the linear component is asymptotically normal.
Consistent selection via the Lasso for high dimensional approximating regression models
Florentina Bunea
Mathematics , 2008, DOI: 10.1214/074921708000000101
Abstract: In this article we investigate consistency of selection in regression models via the popular Lasso method. Here we depart from the traditional linear regression assumption and consider approximations of the regression function $f$ with elements of a given dictionary of $M$ functions. The target for consistency is the index set of those functions from this dictionary that realize the most parsimonious approximation to $f$ among all linear combinations belonging to an $L_2$ ball centered at $f$ and of radius $r_{n,M}^2$. In this framework we show that a consistent estimate of this index set can be derived via $\ell_1$ penalized least squares, with a data dependent penalty and with tuning sequence $r_{n,M}>\sqrt{\log(Mn)/n}$, where $n$ is the sample size. Our results hold for any $1\leq M\leq n^{\gamma}$, for any $\gamma>0$.
