Processes Stimulating Dynamic Cooperation in Female Art Groups. A Qualitative Research Report

Abstract

The subject of the article is the activity of female artistic groups, with a particular focus on development and its dynamics. The aim of the research was to reconstruct the experiences and meanings that professional artists attribute to functioning in such groups. The analysis of the activities of such groups is part of the study of the environmental aspect of creativity. For the purposes of the article, qualitative research was conducted using the technique of free interviews with representatives of four artistic groups representing fine arts, cooperating in Łodz/Poland. The artists represent different generations.

4. Knowledge and Valorisation of the Plastic Language and of the Folk Decorative Motifs in the Artistic Education Study Process

Abstract

The framework and the reference objectives of the ‘Textile art’ course signal priority of the student’s initiation in the fine arts language theory. It is essential to discover new possibilities to study and apply of fine arts language elements for the purposes of triggering students’ creativity. For this purpose, at the course of “Textile art”, we will examine the necessity of studying fine arts language, synthesis of creative forms when essentially determining the contents in the process of development of artistic creativity to fine arts education students. In the process of development of artistic creativity in students it is important to study the language elements by selecting and processing artistic elements of nature. The study of the elements of fine arts language contributes to educating and informing the creative personality while choosing and processing the reality in the context of a methodical creative thinking - along with compositional regularities of scale, rhythm, movement and fine arts forms.

Scenario methods in planning and determining sustainable development of municipalities with Natura 2000 protected areas

Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to analyse the usefulness of applying scenario methods in shaping the processes of development in municipalities, in which special determinants for development are related to the occurrence of especially significant natural values, i.e. municipalities with the Natura 2000 protected areas. The article presents the methodology and scenarios of economic activities development in municipalities located in Natura 2000 protected areas.

The Evolution of Devices and Systems Supporting Rehabilitation of Lower Limbs

Abstract

This paper presents the process of development, as well as examples of devices and systems supporting rehabilitation of the human lower extremities, developed independently over the years in many parts of the world. Particular emphasis was placed on indicating, which major groups of devices supporting kinesitherapy of the lower limbs can be distinguished, what are the important advantages and disadvantages of particular types of solutions, as well as what directions currently dominating in development of rehabilitation systems may be specified. A deeper analysis and comparison of several selected systems was also conducted, resulting in gathering the outcomes in two tables. They focused on a few features of mechanical design, especially the devices’ kinematic structures, and devices’ additional functions associated with, among others, interaction, as well as diagnosis of the limb's state and the progress of rehabilitation.

The peripheries of development: development and labour in circumstances of constant shortages, as exemplified by the Frías district of Peru

Abstract

Empirical research into social vulnerability – and into strategies that allow people to persist or secure their existence – has most often concerned itself with peripheral, poorly-developed regions with a long history of shortages; frequently even ones in which a failure to solve socio-political problems over decades or even centuries, manifests itself in a permanent crisis. One such region is north–western Peru, presented in this article by the authors who have proceeded on the assumption that the socioeconomic development of the country’s mountainous areas (including Frías, the district selected for study) not only reflects a peripheral location as regards central areas of Peru and the department of Piura, but is also an outcome of the workings of political and environmental factors that do not help sustain (or in many cases even obstruct) processes of development.

Analytical Quality by Design with the Lifecycle Approach: A Modern Epitome for Analytical Method Development

Abstract

Quality by Design is the methodical method to development concept that starts with the predefined objects. The method put emphasis on the process of development of a product, the control process, which is built on risk management and comprehensive knowledge of science. The concept of QbD applied to analytical method development is known now as AQbD (Analytical Quality by Design). Comprehension of the Analytical Target Profile (ATP) and the risk assessment for the variables that can have an impact on the productivity of the developed analytical method can be the main principles of the AQbD. Inside the method operable design region (MODR), the AQbD permits the movements of the analytical methods. This paper has been produced to discuss various views of analytical scientists, the comparison with conventional methods, and the phases of the analytical techniques.

PERCEPTION OF THE ŁÓDŹ INDUSTRIAL ARCHITECTURE ROUTE BY ITS INHABITANTS: AN EXAMPLE OF SOCIAL PARTICIPATION IN TOURISM RESEARCH

Abstract

Łódź as a post-industrial city has great potential for post-industrial tourism. An attempt to utilise this has been the creation of the Łódź Industrial Architecture Trail, bringing together buildings related to its industrial past. According to the author, to make the trail a tourist attraction, the first people who should be aware of its value are the city’s inhabitants. The survey confirmed the very important role of social participation in creating the image of a city, and providing the basis for further work on its improvement and promotion. The article does not cover social participation as part of the process of development, but can serve as a contribution to a discussion of the role of a city’s inhabitants in shaping its tourism attractions. At the same time, the article confirms that social participation is an extremely important element of tourism research and forms an introduction to its effective use in practice.

Corrosion monitoring of an active/passive state of Zn coatings

Korózny monitoring aktívneho/pasívneho stavu Zn povlakov

Príspevok sa zaoberá výsledkami dosiahnutými pri vývoji korózne-monitorovacej metódy určenej pre kvantitatívne stanovenie aktivity/pasivity na povrchu zinkových povlakov. V spriahnutí s umelými neurónovými sieťami dokáže citlivo rozlíšiť medzi vysoko aktívnym stavom (RN v rozmedzí kω), strednou a nízkou aktivitou (ako napr. u vzorky exponovanej v atmosfére s RN v rozmedzí Mω), ako aj stavom s veľmi nízkou aktivitou Zn povlaku napr. pod organickým náterom, lakovaním, finálnou metalízou atď. (RN v rozmedzí Gω). Nepriamo sa tak dá použiť pre kvalitatívny odhad finálnej povrchovej úpravy na Zn povlaku.

Competences Assessment and Evaluation Differences and Errors – a Case of IT Profession

Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to verify the hypothesis assuming that appraisal evaluation in companies is overestimated, especially in the case of male IT professionals. Although a valid and reliable evaluation and assessment method exists, and the Development Center method could be mentioned in this context, competences are not assessed properly enough in business. To achieve this goal, the authors analyzed a competence profile relevant to labour market regarding interns graduated from the Polish-Japanese Institute of Information Technology (P-JIIT). The authors explored the results of competence assessment conducted with the Development Center method, as well as the results of performance evaluation upon the completion of a three-month internship in the leading IT companies. The analysis of differences with respect to gender was made basing on the two sources of information on competences. It is preceded by an introduction outlining the main competence-related issues, the Development Center and the performance evaluation principles and errors, as well as the project for IT graduates carried out in the P-JIIT. The findings of the study show that in terms of the performance women in IT industry are evaluated by employers lower than men. This, however, is not the case when we take into consideration reliable scores of assessment conducted by objective assessors during the processes of Development Center.
