Acta Polytechnica Hungarica , 2010,
Abstract: These days, data mining is frequently used as a technology for analysing the hugeamounts of data collected in sport. Basketball is one of most popular sports. Due to itsdynamics, a large number of events happen during a single game. Basketball statisticianshave the task of noting as many of these events as possible, in order to provide for theiranalysis. These data are collected by special software applications. In this paper, we useddata from the First B basketball league for men in Serbia, for seasons 2005/06, 2006/07,2007/08, 2008/09 and 2009/2010. During these five seasons, a total of 890 games wereplayed. These data were analyzed using the feedforward technique in neural networks,which is the most often used technique in analyzing nonlinear sports data. As a final result,we concluded that the most important elements in basketball are two-point shots under thehoop and the defensive rebound, i.e. game "in the paint".
Rules for Evaluation of Scientific Results Published in Scientific Journals
Du?an Surla,Dragan Ivanovi?,Zora Konjovi?,MiloRackovi
International Scientific Journal of Management Information Systems , 2012,
Abstract: This looks into some issues appearing in scientific journals evaluation based on their impact factor (IF). An analysis of the publicly available data on journals’ IFs results in finding that there exist a significant number of journals publication years missing their IF data. Therefore, this article proposes the IF based rules enabling the determination of the journal’s category for the publication years with no IF available. Application of the proposed rules is illustrated through the example of the scientific fields of mathematics, computer science and mechanics. Finally, the examples of the evaluation completed by applying the proposed rules are given. Application of the proposed rules is automated within the CRIS system of the University of Novi Sad (CRIS UNS) using the data available in the database of this system.
The Impact of the Earth’s Movement through the Space on Measuring the Velocity of Light  [PDF]

Journal of Applied Mathematics and Physics (JAMP) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/jamp.2016.46121
Abstract: Goal of this experiment is basically measuring the velocity of light. As usual we will measure two-way velocity of light (from A to B and back). In contrast to the similar experiments we will not assume that speeds of light from A to B and from B to A are equal. To achieve this we will take into account Earth’s movement through the space, rotation around its axis and apply “least squares method for cosine function”, which will be explained in Section 9. Assuming that direction East-West is already known, one clock, a source of light and a mirror, is all equipment we need for this experiment.
Absolute Velocity and Total Stellar Aberration  [PDF]
Milo? ?ojanovi?
Journal of Applied Mathematics and Physics (JAMP) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/jamp.2018.65090
Abstract: It is generally accepted that stellar annual or secular aberration is attributed to the changes in velocity of the detector. We can say it in a slightly different way. By means of the all known experiments, stellar aberration is directly or indirectly detectable and measurable, only if a detector changes its velocity. Our presumption is that stellar aberration is not caused by the changes in the velocity of the detector. It exists due to the movement of the detector regarding to an absolute inertial frame. Therefore it is just the question of how to choose such a frame. In this paper it is proposed a method to detect and measure instantaneous stellar aberration due to absolute velocity. We can call it an “absolute” stellar aberration. Combining an “annual” and an “absolute” we can define a “total” stellar aberration.
Stellar Distance and Velocity  [PDF]

Journal of Applied Mathematics and Physics (JAMP) , 2019, DOI: 10.4236/jamp.2019.71016
Abstract: In this paper, a method is presented by which it is possible to determine a distance between the sun and a star as well as a velocity at which the star moves relative to the sun. In order to achieve this, it is sufficient to know three positions of the star and the unit vectors determined by the star and three arbitrarily chosen points that do not lie on a single line. The method has been tested using the data generated by a computer program as well as real data obtained by Gaia mission. In the first case, we found the huge differences comparing the results derived by the method to the results calculated by the traditional parallax method. In the second case also, there are large differences between the obtained and the expected results, but primarily because of the form of the input data, that is not fully suited to the proposed method. Under certain conditions, one would be able to find a velocity at which the sun is moving regarding a stationary coordinate system (K) that will be defined later on.
The Role of Oxidative Stress on the Pathogenesis of Graves' Disease

Journal of Thyroid Research , 2012, DOI: 10.1155/2012/302537
Abstract: Graves' disease is a most common cause of hyperthyroidism. It is an autoimmune disease, and autoimmune process induces an inflammatory reaction, and reactive oxygen species (ROSs) are among its products. When balance between oxidants and antioxidants is disturbed, in favour of the oxidants it is termed “oxidative stress” (OS). Increased OS characterizes Graves' disease. It seems that the level of OS is increased in subjects with Graves' ophthalmopathy compared to the other subjects with Graves' disease. Among the other factors, OS is involved in proliferation of orbital fibroblasts. Polymorphism of the 8-oxoG DNA N-glycosylase 1 (hOGG1) involved in repair of the oxidative damaged DNA increases in the risk for developing Grave's disease. Treatment with glucocorticoids reduces levels of OS markers. A recent large clinical trial evaluated effect of selenium on mild Graves' ophthalmopathy. Selenium treatment was associated with an improved quality of life and less eye involvement and slowed the progression of Graves' orbitopathy, compared to placebo. 1. Introduction Graves' disease is a most common cause of hyperthyroidism in iodine sufficient areas [1]. It is characterized by diffuse goitre and hyperthyroidism. Graves' orbitopathy represents orbit involvement and is clinically relevant in about half of the patients with the Graves' disease. In 3 to 5% of the patients, orbitopathy is severe [2]. Graves' disease is an autoimmune disease characterized by the presence of the serum autoantibodies. TSH receptor antibody represents the major autoantibody in Graves' disease [3]. Autoimmune process induces an inflammatory reaction and reactive oxygen species (ROSs) are among its products. ROSs are formed as normal metabolic products and are important in normal cellular functioning, but their production can be increased under pathological conditions and cause damage [4, 5]. Therefore, a large number of antioxidant systems act as protective mechanism. Among them are superoxide dismutase which catalyses dismutation of superoxide to peroxide, catalase which catalyses the decomposition of hydrogen peroxide to water and oxygen, while glutathione peroxidise which reduces lipid hidroperoxides while simultaneously oxidizing glutathione [6]. Situation in which balance between oxidants and antioxidants is disturbed in favour of the oxidants is termed “oxidative stress” (OS) [4]. 2. Oxidative Stress and the Thyroid Gland Synthesis of thyroid hormones requires formation of the hydrogen peroxide, a highly reactive oxidant. Hydrogen peroxide and oxidized iodine are immediately
Diagnosis of Thyroid Disease: Principles and Problems

Journal of Medical Biochemistry , 2010, DOI: 10.2478/v10011-010-0037-4
Abstract: Conceptually, thyroid disorders can be classified into four groups, namely: 1. disorders of thyroid morphology, 2. disorders of thyroid function, 3. presence of thyroid autoimmunity, and 4. diagnosis and follow-up of thyroid carcinoma. Of course, these groups are non-exclusive, and often there is overlap between the groups. Ultrasound exam is a standard for the diagnosis of the disorders of thyroid morphology. To diagnose disorders of thyroid function TSH and thyroid hormones should be measured. Presence of thyroid autoimmunity is confirmed by measuring antibodies against thyroid-specific antigens. Thyroid peroxidase (TPO), thyroglobulin (Tg) and TSH receptors antibodies are used in the diagnosis, follow-up and prognosis of autoimmune thyroid disorders. The measurement of serum thyroglobulin has no role in the diagnosis of thyroid cancer, but it is used in the follow-up of patients treated for differentiated thyroid carcinoma of the follicular epithelium. Medullary thyroid cancer (MTC) produces calcitonin and carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA), but calcitonin is specific for MTC. In subjects with MTC, genetic testing should be done, and in positive cases family screening is necessary.
Contribution to the Genus Usnea (Parmeliaceae) in Slovakia: Usnea Glabrescens
Milo Luká
Hacquetia , 2010, DOI: 10.2478/v10028-010-0003-1
Abstract: Usnea glabrescens has been reported to be a re-found species after almost 24 years. We found this lichen in the Bielovodská dolina Valley, Tatry Mts. in 2008. The locality is situated in Tatra National Park near the borderline with Poland. Morphology and medullary chemistry of the specimen were typical for the species. Usnea glabrescens grew in a moderately open and humid mixed forest on the bark of Alnus incana.
"The ideal ethnographer"
Milenkovi? Milo
Glasnik Etnografskog Instituta SANU , 2006, DOI: 10.2298/gei0654161m
Abstract: This article is conceived within the scientific project "Anthropology in the 20th Century: Theoretical and Methodological Achievements". Focusing on the the disciplinary debates and critique around Millennium, this first article in a series offers a preliminary redefinition of some of the basic anthropological concepts: ethnography, ethnographer and informant, as used in pre-postmodern theory of ethnography. Critics interpreted postmodern anthropology as a strong form of relativism that is both epistemologically self-refuting and socially irresponsible. Much credit for the resulting turmoil goes to "postmodernists" themselves, as they failed to articulate precisely in what way their project rejects the traditional concept of regulative methodology, and what their reinterpretation of relativist conceptions of truth, authority, reflexivity, objectivity, interpretation and representation is. The critics dwelled heavily on the notion of incompleteness, vagueness and methodological irrelevance of postmodern criticism in anthropology, largely due to the fact that it never put forward clear definitions of the basic concepts it aims to pursue or to relinquish. As opposed to this received view, the article argues that at least one of the basic concepts used by postmodernists can be methodologically formalized: it is that of "traditional" or the "realist ethnographer". By construing hypothetical "ideal ethnographer", the article formalizes background theory of ethnography against which the postmodern project raised.
