Abstract

This paper presents aspects of the steering gear onboard a merchant ship by analyzing aft and bow systems based on automation and use of modern propulsion. The choice of the transverse propeller is based on several economic considerations (its price, consumption, efficiency, etc.), technical considerations (positioning, size, vibrations induced in the ship’s hull), and maneuverability considerations (the ship’s turning rate under the action of the propeller. Accordingly, the propulsion system can come in various sizes, power values, shapes of the tunnel, and can present fixed or variable pitch propellers. Depending on the maneuverability of the ship, the transverse propulsion is analyzed by taking into account two tests: the turning of the transverse propulsion system test in calm and windy weather, and the steering test. The automation system is designed to control and monitor the on-board operational systems and equipment, and it encompasses a wide range of control, monitor and alarm. The integrated navigational equipment includes the following sub-systems: navigation consoles, ship handling consoles, dynamic positioning consoles, anchoring and deck operations consoles, and propulsion system control consoles. The propulsion control system is especially dedicated to the propeller and thruster control system, resulting in a joint control system, and the cables are reduced in number since the communication lines are used in series. The mandatory condition for successfully solving the problem with the complex automation of naval installations and equipment is the construction of complex automatic control systems (ACS), consisting of: automated commands or remote controls, a system of collecting, processing and displaying information, as well as a system of control, fault detection and diagnosis

Abstract

Background and Aims. Several factors are associated with a heightened risk of subsequent events, morbidity and mortality in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) after an acute coronary syndrome (ACS). Improving the management of these patients is a challenge that requires urgent attention. We aimed to study the long-term effect of the change in treatment strategy depending on the HbA1c level detected during the hospitalization for ACS. Material and methods. The primary endpoints of this study were the major adverse cardiac events (MACE) at 12 months. From the originally included 221 patients 15 were lost (no response to follow-up phone calls). The suboptimal glycaemic control group (HbA1c>7.0%, n=84) was divided in two subgroups: patients who completed a diabetological consult with further treatment changes (intervention group) and patients without this referral (control group). Results. No significant differences in baseline characteristics were found between the 2 subgroups. The second subgroup had a triple risk for a MACE in 1 year (HR=2.8704, 95% CI: 1.109-7.423, p=0.0296) compared to the intervention group. No significant differences were found in secondary endpoints. Conclusion. This study suggests that, after hospitalization for an ACS, diabetologist referral and treatment strategy changes are recommended for all T2DM patients whose HbA1c level is over 7% before discharge.

Abstract

The Seasonal Work Directive forms part of the EU’s sectoral immigration policy, as there is a permanent need for unskilled labour within the EU. The Directive introduces the common admission standards with simplifi ed entry procedures and the prospect of returning in a subsequent season in the sectors which are identifi ed seasonal - most notably agriculture, horticulture and tourism - where work undertaken mostly by third country nationals. As safeguards against economic and social exploitation the Directive also establishes a common set of rights to which third country seasonal workers are entitled during their stay, which, at the same time, also protects EU citizens who are seasonal workers from unfair competition. Today, Hungary is not a target country for seasonal employment. The Directive not only gives an obligation to the Member States but also gives a good chance to make their country more attractive for temporary migration
