The problem of belonging of islets -or rock particles, reef, piece of island- between Romania and Bulgaria as a result of the withdrawal of the Danube River caused by global warming, natural disasters and human effects. Who was in the sovereignty of who is it now? What are the approaches of the Romanian and Bulgarian sides to the issue?
Relevant answer
Answer
. The problem of belonging of islets between Romania and Bulgaria as a result of the withdrawal of the Danube River, caused by global warming, natural disasters and human effects, is a complex issue that requires a detailed legal analysis. According to 1982, United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea, the ownership of islets is determined by the principle of natural prolongation, which states that the territorial sea of a state extends to the outermost point of its coastal landmass. In the case of an islet, the state to which it is naturally attached is considered to have sovereignty over it. In the case of Romania and Bulgaria, the Romanian and Bulgarian sides have different approaches to the issue. The Romanian side argues that the islets should be considered Romanian territory since they are naturally attached to the Romanian coast. The Bulgarian side, however, claims that the islets are naturally attached to the Bulgarian coast, and therefore should be considered Bulgarian territory. In addition, both sides have proposed different solutions to the dispute. The Romanian side has proposed that the islets should be divided between the two countries, with each country having sovereignty over half of the islets. The Bulgarian side has proposed that the islets should be considered international waters and that both countries should have equal access to them. Ultimately, the issue of the ownership of the islets must be resolved through negotiations between Romania and Bulgaria, and a final decision should be based on the principle of natural prolongation.,

Damage to wastewater and drinking water may lead to contamination of water resources. Explosions from rockets or fires generate huge volumes of debris and waste. The release of hazardous materials such as asbestos, industrial chemicals, and fuels compound the effects of environmental contamination.

As a part of my doctoral, I'm interested to evaluate the attitude and barriers of nurses about the use of standardized nursing diagnoses in nursing practice. I want to use a questionnaire in my study, but I wonder what what kind of questionnaire would reflect better the Romanian reality. There are no studies done in Romania about this topic. At the same time, from my professional experience I know that there is a lack of information about nursing process and standardized terminologies in Romania. What approach would be more appropriate considering the local context?
Relevant answer
Answer
The ‚Positions on Nursing Diagnosis Scale‚ (PND) was used in many settings and language. It’s a valid instrument, the original publication is:
Krenz, M., & Lunney, M. (1992). A tool that measures attitudes toward nursing diagnosis. Nursing diagnosis: ND: the official journal of the North American Nursing Diagnosis Association, 3(1), 44-44.
I‚m recommending you search for studies on it, as it’s one of the most used instruments addressing your research question.
Wishing you success!

Question

Dear Colleagues:
I am seeking advice about which countries globally have contracting and de-privatizing higher education systems? I am focusing on Poland, Romania, Bulgaria, and Estonia – but there may be more. I am looking for systems which used to have large private sectors which are now contracting – or which are moving away from fees in the public sector? Or both.
The aim of this strand of my research is to test the usefulness of the concept of “de-privatization” (Marek Kwiek, “De-privatization in Higher Education: A Conceptual Approach”, Higher Education, 74(2), 259-281) in higher education in the empirical context of Central Europe and elsewhere globally of the last decade. Moreover, it intends to explore how this new concept could be useful in global higher education studies.
Privatization processes as defined here include: (a) private-sector growth (external privatization) and (b) the increasing reliance on cost-sharing mechanisms in the public sector (internal privatization). External and internal privatization are viewed in this research as privatization agendas that include different processes for change that are dominant in various national systems. A privatization agenda refers to higher education provision (provided by public or private institutions) and funding (from public or private sources).
Clearly, there can be privatization without the emergence of private-sector institutions, e.g., privatization in the public sector only. By way of analogy, de-privatization processes in higher education refer to (a) private-sector decline (external de-privatization) and (b) the decreasing reliance on cost-sharing mechanisms in the public sector (internal de-privatization). However, external de-privatization cannot exist without the prior existence of the private sector in a system.
Empirically observed trends of de-privatization (and contraction in enrollments) run contrary to global trends of privatization (and expansion). De-privatization processes mean a decreasing role for the private component in the changing public-private dynamics in higher education funding and provision.
The critical issue defining the uniqueness of these countries is the privatization/de-privatization-demography link: privatization tends to be on the rise in expanding systems (almost everywhere in the world in the 2010s) and to be in reverse in contracting systems with heavily declining demography. However, demography is not the only factor involved; other factors include national academic traditions, social and political priorities, and national spending priorities. The four countries seem to value their public sectors highly and subsidize them accordingly—and they seem unwilling to subsidize their private sectors, demonstrating traditionally pure public and pure private sectors with limited cross-sectoral blurring in provision or funding.
We can imagine countries with decreasing reliance on fees in the public sector – for political and other reasons!
If you find any analogies globally – let me know about the particular countries!
Thank you in advance!

Hi Marek hocam,
Turkey presents a highly different picture in terms of de-privatisation in HE sector. TR has two uni types, public and (non-profit) foundation unies, and no legal allowance to establish private/profit-oriented unies. The TR government also provides free HE education in public unies (including associate, undergraduate, master and doctoral education programmes) for a long time, almost last 15 years. Moreover, the government basically funds everything in public unies, including salaries, student credits (for life expenses), R&D budget, etc. Interestingly, the TR government is also the main funding body for most of foundation unies. However, a couple of months ago the government announced the draft of 11th national deveopment until 2023, the centenary year of TR. This draft includes the item on the possible legal arrangement for private unies. As a result, the government is still funding around 90% of HE sector in TR. Now, we are waiting to see what will happen after 11th development plan and the potential private unies in TR.
Given above, I can comment that a high internal de-privatisation generated a sort of privilege for HE sector, while no need for intensive external de-privarisation in the composition of TR HE.
Best,
B.

The issue of food waste (FW) in the global context has an in-depth meaning for sustainability. FW is not an exotic topic anymore, nurtured by the scientific community only. It has economic, social and environmental impacts. It has become a wide topic for debates. FW is met throughout all the food supply chain (FSC). At the end of this chain, at the consumption stage, are the households and the restaurants. FW is social misbehaviour. In Europe, FS is the second largest FW producer, with 20% of total production - approx. 25.5 million tonnes, annually. Presently, In Romania, where the research is carried out, there are no studies attesting the existence of FW in the FS, especially in the restaurants.

What is the impact of National Anthems (lyrics and music tonality, measure) upon population?
Does the violence invoked in lyrics have any impact upon population; a positive or negative impact?  
May the National Anthems be responsible for the increased aggressive behavior and violence among populations ?
Does the tonality of melody have any impact? What about the rhythm, does it have any influence?
In the paper “National Anthems and Suicide Rates” by David Lester of The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey and John. F. Gunn III of Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, published in Psychological Reports, 2011,108,1,43-44. DOI 10.2466/12.PR0.108.1.43-44, ISSN 0033-2941 the summary mentions:
“In a sample of 18 European nations, suicide rates were positively associated with the proportion of low notes in the national anthems and, albeit less strongly, with students' ratings of how gloomy and how sad the anthems sounded, supporting a hypothesis proposed by Rihmer.”
Do you know of any countries that consider to change their National Anthem for any reasons, especially due to the invoked violence and/or the mood it creates?
As it is known in the neurolinguistics (Neurolinguistic Programing), the texts as well as certain sounds have a profound impact upon people's mind.
As an other example, I'll mention the anthems of France, United States of America (USA) and Romania , texts that contain blood, bombs, revenge, (perhaps discrimination as we find in the Romanian anthem).
Can anybody add to this study, reference, studies, and opinions please? All discussions will help a great deal.

We study the environmental external costs of charging electric vehicles in different European countries.
Different fuels and technologies (e.g. nuclear, coal, gas, hydro, wind, ...) are used in different countries to generate electricity and these power plants are switched on/off at different times of the day/week/year. Therefore the external costs of charging vehicles depend on the location (country) and time of day.
We are looking for datasets on the national electricity production per fuel/technology with a temporal resolution of 15 minutes. We have only been successful in locating such data (online) for Belgium and France. Finding this data will allow us to calculate the environmental benefits of electric vehicles and determine the best schemes for charging them in different countries.
