Use of different investigation methods of soil for forensic purpose
Kristinatibelj
Geologija , 2012,
Abstract: With its specific background and methods, geology may help forensic scientists considerably when doingresearches and analyses. Based on the procedures used in the National Forensic Laboratory, we have beenresearching and comparing 15 soil samples from different locations. We divided them into 3 groups, of which eachcomprised one pair of samples of the same location. By comparing colour, density and mineral composition in thesoil samples, we tried to determine which two samples originated from the same location. We were comparingthe results of individually used research methods and tried to evaluate which provide the best sample matches.Furthermore, we were comparing how the mineral composition of the samples and their bedrock match. The bestmatch was achieved by applying the method of X-ray powder diffraction, which clearly showed identical samplescollected from the same location. When measuring density, the values varied according to the location site, fromwhich the comparative and conflicting samples were taken. The change of density was observed in the distanceof less than one meter. For the field of forensic science the exact location of sample collection is of crucial importance.The proximity of sample collecting has considerable impact on density, as longer distances do not providecomparative results, whereas a short distance may present us with highly matching samples, the method which iswidely considered applicable in forensic science. By applying the method of X-ray powder it is possible to acquirecomparative results at the distance of several meters; in forensic science, however, this does not provide acceptableresults for defining the identity of the location.
Minimization of the Expected Total Net Loss in a Stationary Multistate Flow Network System  [PDF]
Kristina Skutlaberg, Bent Natvig
Applied Mathematics (AM) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/am.2016.78071
Abstract: In the present paper, a three-component, stationary, multistate flow network system is studied. Detailed costs and incomes are specified. The aim is to minimize the expected total net loss with respect to the expected times the components spend in each state. This represents a novelty in that we connect the expected component times spent in each state to the minimal total net loss of the system, without first finding the component importance. This is of interest in the design phase where one may tune the components to minimize the expected total net loss. Due to the complex nature of the problem, we first study a simplified version. There the expected times spent in each state are assumed equal for each component. Then a modified version of the full model is presented. The optimization in this model is completed in two steps. First the optimization is carried out for a set of pre-chosen fixed expected life cycle lengths. Then the overall minimum is identified by varying these expectations. Both the simplified and the modified optimization problems are nonlinear. The setup used in this article is such that it can easily be modified to represent other flow network systems and cost functions. The challenge lies in the optimization of real life systems.
New approaches to pharmacological treatment of osteoporosis
?kesson,Kristina;
Bulletin of the World Health Organization , 2003, DOI: 10.1590/S0042-96862003000900008
Abstract: osteoporosis has been recognized as a major public health problem for less than two decades. the increasing incidence of fragility fractures, such as vertebral, hip, and wrist fractures, first became apparent from epidemiological studies in the early and mid-1980s, when effective treatment was virtually unavailable. pharmacological therapies that effectively reduce the number of fractures by improving bone mass are now available widely in countries around the world. most current agents inhibit bone loss by reducing bone resorption, but emerging therapies may increase bone mass by directly promoting bone formation - as is the case with parathyroid hormone. current treatment alternatives include bisphosphonates, calcitonin, and selective estrogen receptor modulators, but sufficient calcium and vitamin d are a prerequisite. the availability of evidence-based data that show reductions in the incidence of fractures of 30-50% during treatment has been a major step forward in the pharmacological prevention of fractures. with all agents, fracture reduction is most pronounced for vertebral fracture in high-risk individuals; alendronate and risedronate also may protect against hip fracture in the elderly. new approaches to pharmacological treatment will include further development of existing drugs, especially with regard to tolerance and frequency of dosing. new avenues for targeting the condition will emerge as our knowledge of the regulatory mechanisms of bone remodelling increases, although issues of tissue specificity may be difficult to solve. in the long term, information gained through knowledge of bone genetics may be used to adapt pharmacological treatments more precisely to each individual.

Osnovni pojmovi koje autor u tom kontekstu definira su refleksivna praksa, uloga posrednika koju socijalni radnik ima u odnosu s korisnikom i ideja osna ivanja. S tim u vezi autor isti e va nost uskla ivanja obrazovanja budu ih stru njaka s potrebama prakse. Pritom terenska nastava postaje sve zahtjevnija, a uloga terenskog nastavnika sve slo enija. Takve promjene zahtijevaju od profesionalne zajednice da prepozna va nost terenske nastave, uspostavi sustav specijaliziranja prakti ara za obavljanje ove uloge, te uvede odre ene oblike podr ke i stimulacije za terenske nastavnike.

Abstract: Die klassische visuelle Anthropologie hat in den letzten Jahren einen zunehmenden Paradigmenwechsel erfahren. Mehr und mehr bemühen sich KünstlerInnen und EthnologInnen um Zusammenarbeit und um das Aufbrechen der starren Grenzen zwischen den Disziplinen. Der hier besprochene Band widmet sich in dreizehn Beitr gen von KünstlerInnen, EthnologInnen und KunstwissenschaftlerInnen den Herausforderungen von Kollaboration und Austausch. URN: http://nbn-resolving.de/urn:nbn:de:0114-fqs1203254 Classic Visual Anthropology has most recently undergone a shift in paradigm. The discipline is now increasingly focused on the collaboration between artists, anthropologists and ethnographers to surmount the rigid borders separating the fields of science and art. The volume reviewed here dedicates its 13 contributions by artists, ethnologists, art historians and art critics to the challenge of mutual collaboration and dialogue.

Enforcing Tax Compliance: To Punish or Persuade?
Murphy, Kristina
Economic Analysis and Policy , 2008,
Abstract: A long standing debate has existed between those who believe deterrence-based enforcement strategies work for gaining compliance from offenders and those who believe gentle persuasion and cooperation is more effective. This article is concerned with the issue of how to best deal with offenders so as to increase support for the law and lower the rate of subsequent re-offending. Using survey data from 652 taxpayers who have been through an enforcement experience with the Australian Taxation Office, the present study will show that depending on how an enforcement experience is perceived by offenders (as either stigmatic or reintegrative in nature) can influence the feelings of resentment they experience, but more importantly these feelings of resentment mediate the effect of punishment on subsequent compliance behaviour. In other words, it is these feelings of resentment in response to disapproval that go on to predict who will and will not comply with their subsequent obligations under the law.
