U.S. intra-industry trade in air transport services: measurement and results

The paper deals with the measurement of intra-industry trade (IIT) in air transport services and it´s components (passenger and air cargo services) among the United States of America and 31 chosen countries in time period 2000 - 2011. For the purpose of analysis, we used traditional and alternative methods of IIT measurements. Results of the analysis confirm the existence of IIT in air transport services and it´s components (passenger and air cargo services between The United States

Child Abuse Management Units: How can Mental Health Services be Further Improved?

Child abuse is a broad term that includes physical, sexual, and emotional (e.g., psychological, verbal) abuse. There are huge variations with regard to the level of severity and the consequences of abuse. Because child abuse is such a sensitive topic, it is a challenging task to conduct studies concerning this subject.The aim of the study was to identify areas that could be improved to offer better health care services to patients. Therefore, routine assessments, the characteristics of the

FORMING DELIVERY ROUTES WHILE PROCESSING THE STOCHASTIC FLOW OF REQUESTS FOR FORWARDING SERVICES

Formation of rational delivery routes is the main way to increase the effectiveness of client services for freight forwarding companies. The main part of the requests for transport services comes from occasional (non-constant) clients. The set of those requests forms a stochastic flow. For stochastic requests flow, the delivery routes are formed in the process of the requests receipt. Therefore, the standard approaches for merging of requests from multiple clients into routes, based on linear

MIDDLEWARE FOR SMART HETEROGENEOUS CRITICAL INFRASTRUCTURE NETWORKS INTERCOMMUNICATION

Critical Infrastructures (CIs) are physical assets and organizations responsible for the production and distribution of society’s vital goods and services. The increasing interconnection of CIs has resulted in interdependencies which might lead to propagation of failure from one infrastructure to another. Most of current critical infrastructures are equipped with data collection and communication capabilities that can be used to inform and warn other CIs about such events and alarms. In this

OPTIMIZING THE TIME COSTS OF PASSENGER TRANSPORT OF PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES

The paper dwells on a mathematical model of the logistical system of transport services for persons with disabilities, and there have been analyzed factors that affect the time spent on their transportation. When developing methodology for optimizing the time costs of passenger transport of persons with disabilities, the following two basic transportation services have been taken into account: (a) "social taxi", which will transport only people with special health; (b) a vehicle

An Enhanced Scheme in Controlling Both Coverage and Quality of Service in Wireless Sensor Networks

With the increasing number of applications for Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs), different Quality of Services (QoS) levels based on the type of applications are required. An increasing research interest has been noted in the provision of QoS support in WSNs. QoS support in WSNs is challenging because of very limited resources, such as battery power, processing power, memory, and bandwidth. An earlier study introduced a QoS control approach based on the Gur Game. The Gur Game-based scheme can
