Abstract

In this paper, we present the partial results of a study that aims to highlight the link between affectivity and work performance in the military organization. We considered that the anxiety generated by daily activities is an important factor that can affect the performance at work of the military personnel. To measure this type of anxiety we used the Job Anxiety subscale, which is a part of Job Stress Scale developed by Parker & DeCotiis. The Job Anxiety subscale is constructed to exceed the specific features of each occupation or workplace, making it suitable for measuring the level of anxiety in the military environment. Cronbach's coefficient indicates a good internal consistency of the subscale. To test the criterion reliability, we correlated this subscale with a related construct: the anxiety as a trait measured by STAI (State-Trait Anxiety Inventory). The job anxiety correlated significantly positive with anxiety-trait.

Abstract

Having a long tradition in the system of judicial organization in Romania, the military courts represent a category of courts specialized in the prosecution and punishment of the deeds committed by the military. In the context of satisfying the public interest and of the protection of the fundamental rights and freedoms of the citizens, the role of the military courts has always been a strongly individualized one and should, at first sight, enjoy a wider recognition. However, the reforms required by the implementation of the new codes, the Criminal Code and the Criminal Procedure Code, bring into discussion significant restructuring and side with a demilitarization of military courts, required by a better streamlining of the judicial system and by a more adequate implementation of the guarantees of independence and impartiality stipulated by the Constitution of Romania.

Abstract

The analysis of geographical spaces and the way in which physical-geographic elements influence the planning and conduct of military operations is related to military geography as a component of military science. From the military point of view, the parameters of the relief are of particular importance. In this respect, in the Bârgău Mountains, the mountainous landforms, with slopes leading to the lack of viability, then the high ridges and dominant points that offer wide views, the regime of the currents, the rain, the harshness of the climate in different seasons, the high temperature variations and atmospheric pressure, are elements that oppose or which, on the contrary, can be used as a real weapon against the enemy
