Urbanisti no na rtovanje in te ave tranzicijskega razvoja v Skopju
Jasna Stefanovska,Janez Koelj
Urbani Izziv , 2012,
Abstract: Makedonsko glavno mesto je tako kot tevilna druga mesta v sosednjih dr avah do ivelo radikalne spremembe, ki so v zadnjih dvajsetih letih in e prej vplivale na urbanisti ne procese. V zadnjem stoletju se je prebivalstvo Skopja pove alo za ve kot desetkrat, dru bene spremembe v tem obdobju pa niso vplivale samo na na rtovalske procese, temve tudi na grajeno tkivo mesta. Posledi no so mesto preoblikovale najrazli nej e dinamike. V zadnjih dvajsetih letih je razvoj Skopja zaznamoval dolg in bole prehod – proces, med katerim se je mesto moralo prilagoditi novim kompleksnim razmeram. Kriza, ki je zajela Skopje, je povzro ila slab o kakovost grajenega okolja in ustvarila plodna tla za pekulativno gradnjo. Postalo je jasno, da urbanisti no na rtovanje ne more ve delovati kot orodje nadzora in razvoja, katerega glavni cilj je varovati in spodbujati javne interese. V lanku so analizirane na rtovalske pobude, sprejete pred 90. leti 20. stoletja in pozneje, pri emer so opredeljene glavne faze preobrazbe od 90. let naprej, in sicer v skladu s klju no zakonodajo, politi nimi dejavniki in z upravnimi odlo itvami, ki so prispevali k urbani preobrazbi mesta.
Urban planning and transitional development issues: The case of Skopje, Macedonia
Jasna Stefanovska,Janez Koelj
Urbani Izziv , 2012,
Abstract: Like many cities in neighbouring countries, the Macedonian capital Skopje has undergone radical changes that have affected urban planning processes for over twenty years. Over the past century, during which Skopje’s population has grown more than tenfold, social changes have not only affected planning processes but also impacted the built fabric of the city. As a result, the city has been transformed by a diverse set of dynamics. The last twenty years of Skopje’s development have been marked by a long and painful transition, a process through which the city has had to adjust to new complexities. The current crisis engulfing the city has led to deterioration in the quality of the built environment and has created fertile ground for speculative developments. It has become clear that urban planning is no longer able to operate as an instrument of control and development with the primary aim of protecting and promoting public interests. This article analyses the planning initiatives both before and after the 1990s, defining the main phases of transformation since the 1990s according to the key legislation, political factors and administrative decisions that have contributed to the urban transformations of the city.

Geodetski Vestnik , 2005,
Abstract: In the frame of the project carried out by the Surveying and Mapping Authority of the Republic of Slovenia the modernisation and data preparation for the introduction of land quality into the land cadastre has been completed. The effectiveness period of the current legal data of cadastre classification will cease in 2007. Data on land quality are based on unified criteria for all agricultural and forest land allotments and represent the professional bases for many users and analyses in the Republic of Slovenia.
Echocardiographic Assessment of Left Ventricular Function in Type 1 Gaucher's Disease
Mirta Koelj,Samo Zver,Vesna Zadnik
Advances in Hematology , 2010, DOI: 10.1155/2010/820843
Abstract: There is predominate opinion among physicians managing type 1 Gauchers' disease (GD) that cardiac involvement is not an issue in these patients. In order to follow this hypothesis, we prospectively investigated 15 adult imiglucerase-treated type 1 GD patients by echocardiography, Doppler, and tissue Doppler echocardiography. This was a case-controlled study with 18 matched healthy volunteers. The obtained data was correlated with the levels of NT-proBNP (brain natriuretic peptide). None of the GD patients had clinical signs of heart disease. In 3 of the 15 patients, we observed echocardiographic signs of aortic and mitral valve calcification. The left ventricular systolic function was within normal limits. Compared to the control group, there was no statistically significant difference observed in the most sensitive indices of left ventricular diastolic function, parameter ( ), and ratio ( ), as demonstrated by tissue Doppler echocardiography. However, there was a positive correlation between the ratio and NT-proBNP plasma levels ( ). In conclusion, the prospective echocardiographic study of type 1 GD patients did not validate any left ventricular dysfunction. But, the ratio showed a strong statistical correlation with the most sensitive indicators of heart failure, NT-proBNP. Research on larger groups of patients and the usage of even more sensitive methods as strain-rate imaging will be necessary to confirm eventual myocardial involvement in GD patients. 1. Introduction Gaucher’s disease (GD) is an autosomal recessive inherited defect of lysosomal enzyme beta-glucosidase, which leads to glucocerebroside accumulation in various organs, especially those of the reticuloendothelial system (RES). The fact is that the cells of RES are present in every human organ and consequentially we could expect that virtually every human organ may be involved. Nevertheless, the heart is not thought to be involved in type 1 GD. Meanwhile, there is an exception regarding type 3 GD (characterised by nonacute neurological involvement) in which aortic cusps and mitral leaflets may show calcifications on light microscopy, and Gaucher’s cells were confirmed in the lesions by electron microscopy [1–6]. Homozygosity for the D409H mutation has been associated with specific cardiovascular symptoms [6]. Constrictive pericarditis has been described in patients with type 1 GD, but no Gaucher’s cells have been found in the pericardium [7–9]. There are few reports of pulmonary hypertension in type 1 GD [9]. The first one includes the influential description of pericarditis in Gaucher’s
The Present State and Prospects of Slovenian Private Forest Owners’ Cooperation within Machinery Rings
?pela Pezdev?ek Malovrh,Petra Gro?elj,Lidija Zadnik Stirn,Janez Kr?
Croatian Journal of Forest Engineering , 2012,
Abstract: The study analyzes the challenges and prospects of private forest owners’ cooperation based on the use of machinery in Slovenia applying the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats approach (SWOT analysis) in combination with the analytic hierarchy process (AHP). The data from questionnaires with forest owners and presidents of machinery rings were used to develop and to analyze the strategies for forest owners’ cooperation. The results reveal that the members of machinery rings are only partly satisfied with the operation of the existing rings and that the activities of rings meet the members’ interests related to forest management. Thus, machinery rings are recognized as a suitable form of forest owners’ cooperation. The presidents of machinery rings perceive the integration of farmers and private forest owners, as well as knowing the level of mechanization of members as major strengths of machinery rings. Further, strengthening the operation of machinery rings in the field of forestry is recognized as an important opportunity. The shortage of means for operation is identified as a weakness for machinery rings, and the lack of subsidies for investments in equipment is identified as a critical threat. However, the rank of importance of the SWOT groups leads to defensive approach in the strategic planning where machinery rings have to minimize weaknesses in order to avoid threats. These results provide important insights in the future development of forest owners’ cooperation based on common use of machinery.

Ivan Ivkovi?,?eljko Janjo?,Sre?ko ?e?elj
International Journal for Traffic and Transport Engineering , 2011,
Abstract: The use of natural gas as bus propellant presupposes the application of a driving unit adjusted to the use of natural gas in addition to the application of a corresponding gas facility. The first part of the paper describes the distinguishing features related to the storage of compressed natural gas tanks as the main carriers of additional mass due to the use of this energy substance for the propulsion of buses, as well as their effect on the structural features of vehicles. The second part of the paper covers the formulation and analysis of differential equations in terms of the steering system’s stability, and the equations depict the motion of the natural gas bus with its structural features, according to the defined models for instances of bus braking with locked front, rear and all wheels.
Gangrenous appendicitis presenting as acute abdominal pain in a patient on automated peritoneal dialysis: a case report
Ekart Robert,Horvat Matja?,Koelj Miran,Balon Breda
Journal of Medical Case Reports , 2012, DOI: 10.1186/1752-1947-6-309
Abstract: Introduction Presentations of abdominal pain in patients on peritoneal dialysis deserve maximal attention and careful differential diagnosis on admittance to medical care. In this case report a gangrenous appendicitis in a patient on automated peritoneal dialysis is presented. Case presentation We report the case of a 38-year-old Caucasian man with end-stage renal disease who was on automated peritoneal dialysis and developed acute abdominal pain and cloudy peritoneal dialysate. Negative microbiological cultures of the peritoneal dialysis fluid and an abdominal ultrasonography misleadingly led to a diagnosis of culture negative peritonitis. It was decided to remove the peritoneal catheter but the clinical situation of the patient did not improve. An explorative laparotomy was then carried out; diffuse peritonitis and gangrenous appendicitis were found. An appendectomy was performed. Myocardial infarction and sepsis developed, and the outcome was fatal. Conclusion A peritoneal dialysis patient with abdominal pain that persists for more than 48 hours after the usual antibiotic protocol for peritoneal dialysis-related peritonitis should immediately alert the physician to the possibility of peritonitis caused by intra-abdominal pathology. Not only peritoneal catheter removal is indicated in patients whose clinical features worsen or fail to resolve with the established intra-peritoneal antibiotic therapy but, after 72 hours, an early laparoscopy should be done and in a case of correct indication (intra-abdominal pathology) an early explorative laparotomy.
Predicting Wood Skidding Direction on Steep Terrain by DEM and Forest Road Network Extension
Janez Kr?,Bo?tjan Ko?ir
Croatian Journal of Forest Engineering , 2008,
Abstract: The study presents the procedure and functioning of themodel for large-scale determination of wood skidding direction on steep slopes. The determination of wood skidding direction significantly depends on the position of the forest stand and the adjacent forest road, the characteristics of skid trail /ground/ and forest operation technology with special attention to the applied skidding means. The model evaluation of wood skidding direction is determined on the basis of forest road layout on the slope (slope, valley and ridge). The data of digital terrainmodel and digitalized forest road network were used as source data. The software can be modified according to specific technology needs by increasing the range and/or the level of suitability of individual wood skidding directions between two roads. The classification is presented for case study Forest Management Unit comprising 3000 ha. The application of the model discussed, as wll as its limitation and adaptation to changing technological condition and its development in the future.
Natural composition of tree species as a basis for model development of stumpage price
Bo?tjan Ko?ir,?ivko Ko?ir,Janez Kr?
Croatian Journal of Forest Engineering , 2006,
Abstract: Model development and use play a significant role in research and forest management of Slovenian forests. As co-natural and sustainable forest management is traditional, it is essential to rely on available knowledge of the composition of natural plant associations.This paper describes the need for stumpage price modelling, and the basic concept of developing models which can behave dynamically as forest structure approaches the final goal – tree composition close to nature. The main plant associations in Slovenia and their characteristic tree structure represent the so called model goal. Input data are taken from forest inventory base and are compared with the model goal. The difference between the model and true tree structure together with growth and other variables gives the intensity and structure of prescribed annual cut and consequently the value of wood assortments. The model produced several possible scenarios for the next decades, and this has already proved tobe a good basis for decision making.
