CEPS Journal : Center for Educational Policy Studies Journal , 2012,
Abstract: This study examined the difference between less-skilled and skilled L1Slovene English as foreign language (EFL) students in foreign language(L2) fluency and L2 orthographic skills; 93 less-skilled Grade 7 L1 Slovene students and 102 skilled Grade 7 L1 Slovene students participated in the study. The results showed that skilled readers performed better in all fluency and orthographic skills tasks, as the differences between groups were statistically significant. The correlations among all variables showed that L2 fluency and L2 orthographic skills are positively interrelated among both groups, suggesting that higher L2 fluency scores are associated with higher L2 orthography scores. This outcome implies that less-skilled readersneed to be greatly exposed to L2 language and be ensured necessaryopportunities in- or outside the classroom in L2 learning.
Nanocomposites Based on Conducting Polymers and Functionalized Carbon Nanotubes with Different Dopants Obtained by Electropolymerization  [PDF]
Florina Branzoi, Viorel Branzoi
Journal of Surface Engineered Materials and Advanced Technology (JSEMAT) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/jsemat.2014.43020

Nanocomposite films based on poly (3,4-ethylenedioxy thiophene) (PEDOT), functionalized single-walled carbon nanotubes and different dopants were studied. It was fabricated by a simple oxidative electropolymerization method. The dopant substances used were SDS (Sodium dodecyl sulfate) and tiron (1,2-Dihydroxybenzene-3,5-disulfonic acid disodium salt hydrate). These nano-composite films were grown electrochemically from aqueous solutions such that constituents were deposited simultaneously onto substrate electrode. The synthetic, morphological and electrical properties of the nanocomposite films obtained were compared. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) revealed that the composite films consisted of nanoporous networks of SWCNTS (single-walled carbon nanotubes) coated with polymeric film. Cyclic voltammetry (CV), electro-chemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) and FT-IR spectroscopy demonstrated that these composite films had similar electrochemical response rates to pure polymeric films but a lower resistance and much improved mechanical integrity. The negatively charged functionalized carbon nano-tubes (CNTSF) served as anionic dopant during the electropolymerization to synthesize polymer/CNTSF composite films. The specific electrochemical capacitance of the composite films is a significantly higher value than that for pure polymer films prepared similarly. Using these composite films, the modified electrodes with improved properties were obtained. (In this paper, for simplicity, the SWANTs-COOH group will be noted CNTsF which means functionalized carbon nanotubes.)

The Electrochemical Behaviour of PEDOT Film Electrosynthesized in Presence of Some Dopants  [PDF]
Florina Branzoi, Viorel Branzoi
Open Journal of Organic Polymer Materials (OJOPM) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ojopm.2015.54010
Abstract: Electropolymerization and characterization of poly(3,4-ethylene dioxythiophene) (PEDOT) doped with functionalized single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWANTs) polyaminobenzene sulfonic acid (PABS) and different dopants were studied. It was fabricated by a simple oxidative electropolymerization method. The nanocomposite coatings have been prepared by using electrochemical methods from aqueous solutions, such that the components were deposited onto platinum electrode substrate. The morphology of composite films was analyzed by scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The electrochemical and physical properties of the resulting composites were evaluated by cyclic voltammetry (CV), electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR) techniques in 0.1 M LiClO4 aqueous solutions. The value of specific electrochemical capacitance of the composite films is considerably higher than that of the pure polymers films. The improved properties of the electrodes were obtained by using these composite films. The dopant substances used were sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) and 1,2-Dihydroxy- benzene-3,5-disulfonic acid disodium salt hydrate (tiron).
Adrian Marino, The life of a Single Man or on the Meaning of Ideological Autobiography
Florina ILIS
Studii de Stiinta si Cultura , 2012,
Abstract: The present study tries to analyse The life of a single man by Adrian Marino from the perspective of the autobiographical genre. However, a close reading of the text’s Foreword reveals certain poetic and stylistic features which render difficult the assignement of genre. Starting from some of the suggestions Philippe Lejeune provides in his Autobiographical Pact, we tried to clear up these aspects through an interpretive reading of the authorial intentions Adrian Marino himself had hinted at in the beginning of the text. Determining the distinct positions of the author, the narrator and the character as related to the events narrated also provides challenging hypotheses in order to define Adrian Marino’s text. Last but not least, we intend to dwell upon the ideological type of the autobiography, which explains the peculiar nature of the text.1
Considerations Regarding the Decoupling Thesis under Conditions of Demographic Growth and Industrialization
Florina Bran
Theoretical and Applied Economics , 2007,
Abstract: Many individuals and organizational leaders are well aware that their activities affect the natural environment. This awareness grows out of growing evidence of the effects of environmental use and some thirty years of environmental activism. Our paper aims to look at the worldwide interconnections in the natural environment that result from the use of global commons and other resources. A special emphasis will be given to examine the combined effects of population growth and industrialization as pressures on the natural environment. Together population growth and economic development hasten natural resources consumption, putting pressure on the global commons, spreading disease, threatening species, and extending the impact of global natural disasters. Their interrelated nature will be enlightened thoroughly toward “boom” and “doom” perspectives.
Annals of the University of Bucharest : Geography Series , 2011,
Abstract: The rapid development of the cities and growth of urban population have determined an inadequate use of some terms and concepts, in order to include in the research field specific phenomena and apply appropriate preventive measures. One such concept is about the hazards occurring inside the urban territory – urban hazards. The term urban can sometimes be associated to anthropogenic/industrial hazards or social hazards, and less to natural hazards.Natural hazards in urban areas are generally common for that geographical region. There is no such thing like special urban hazards. What is specific to urban area is the anthropogenic factor, which brings to risk various risk elements, including population, through his activities, density, or buildings. As a consequence, transition from hazard to risk is faster in time and space. Another feature is the multi- and interdisciplinary character of the genetic type of hazards. The so-called natural hazards are often caused by an anthropogenic factor. In the special literature urban risk is simply defined as the risk bounded by the urban territory or area, and is classified into: natural risk; industrial and technology risk; diffused risk.

Abstract: The paper is a brief presentation of the structures and institutions of the corporative governance, their role in the corporative control in the CEE countries in transition, i.e., insiders, banking systems, capital markets, non-banking financial agents. The paper refers to the increasing role played by the insiders, especially by the managers, in decision-making, as they tend to serve their own interests, due to their advantage concerning the business information. The development of the banking systems and capital markets may influence the governance systems, besides the non-banking financial agents, as they represent the main tools of the corporative governance. The banking system plays, by means of the credits, a special role in the corporative governance, as the debt mechanism is a means of exerting the outsiders’ control over the managers, making them act for the performance and the shareholders’ and other stakeholders’ interests. Finally, there are some conclusions concerning the features and trends of the corporative governance in some transition countries.

Abstract: In the last couple of decades various scholars have signaled the occurrence and development of important processes in political communication. If some have broadly coined these transformationsas "Americanization" (Negrine & Papathanassopoulos, 1996; Scammel, 1998), "professionalization" (Blumler & Kavanaugh, 1999; Str mb ck, 2008; Stamper & Brants, 2011), "tabloidization" (Barnett, 1998; Connell, 1998; Klein, 1996) or "infotainment", (Street, 2000; 2001), others have associated them with terms such as "video malaise (Robinson, 1976) or "spectatorship democracy" (De Beus, 2011). According to these views, political journalism nowadays has stepped into a new era, in which the coverage of political events andtelevision programming itself are heading towards an entertainment logic. Rosa Van Santen's work addresses all of these issues and represents a very valuable contribution to assesing these hypotheses. The book represents her PhD thesis and is structured into seven chapters, one of which illustrates a literature review on the concepts of popularization and personalization; and five represent separate empirical studies addressing them.
Lights, Camera, Action! How the 2009 Romanian Presidential Debates Portrayed Political Candidates

Abstract: In the last two decades, the concept of public sphere has reached international academic debates, its meanings have constantly changed and have been adapted to various domains. Particularly, in media studies, the question that needs to be addressed is this: to what extent the public sphere represents an arena of deliberativecommunication and equal access, as Jürgen Habermas had envisaged it? Thus, many authors claim that the mediated public sphere provided by television today no longer values the aforementioned elements, leadingto its dissolution. However, the meanings of this concept have been constantly reviewed, which requires a more careful consideration of this claim. Hence, the paper aims at understanding how the initial criteria of the public sphere have been assessed by academics in order to develop a personal definition of the concept. We argue that a main prerequisite of the mediated public sphere is that of deliberative communication, understood as equal representation granted by the media to political actors. Inspired by media bias theories, the empirical part of the paper addresses the following question: To what extent is the mediated public sphere a deliberative one? In order to answer it, the present paper examines the visual means used for portraying the political candidates and their supporters in the last Romanian presidential debate.
