This contribution contains a survey of basic literature dealing with arrays of microelectrodes with overlapping diffusion layers as prospective tools in contemporary electrochemistry. Photolithographic thin layer technology allows the fabrication of sensors of micrometric dimensions separated with a very small gap. This fact allows the diffusion layers of single microelectrodes to overlap as members of the array. Various basic types of microelectrode arrays with interacting diffusion layers are described and their analytical abilities are accented. Theoretical approaches to diffusion layer overlapping and the consequences of close constitution effects such as collection efficiency and redox cycling are discussed. Examples of basis applications in electroanalytical chemistry such as amperometric detectors in HPLC and substitutional stripping voltammetry are also given. Source

The paper presents results of the research focused on opinion leaders and interpretive communities of young active Catholics in Slovakia in connection with contemporary ecclesial-societal issues. The author pays a special attention to the Church opinion leaders and the sources of the opinion leaders credibility. She proceeds from a broader research, realized on a sample of 339 respondents from 18 to 40 years old. She is linking her findings with the three current ecclesial-societal issues: the removal of the archbishop Róbert Bezák from office, financial separation of Church and state and clerical celibacy. © 2016, Ecozone, OAIMDD.

Increased tick-borne encephalitis (TBE) cases have been reported in central Europe. To investigate temporal trends in the altitude at which TBE cases occur in Slovakia, we analyzed the number of TBE cases during 1961-2004. Since 1980, TBE cases moved from lowlands to submountainous areas, most likely because of rising temperature. Source

A method employing different data sources in the construction of indices that quantify internet availability is developed in this article, and it is applied at municipality and regional levels in Slovakia. The indices are subsequently correlated with other indicators commonly used to delineate peripheral areas, in order to evaluate factors which might influence (or be influenced by) the spatial distribution of internet availability. The results show that the information-communication technology side of spatial polarization generates similar patterns as the other more traditional aspects. Source

The aim of the study was to discover the effect of dilemma discussion (the Konstanz Method of Dilemma Discussion – KMDD) on the moral judgment competence of students in helping professions. The sample consisted of 36 Theology students and 45 Psychology students. The subjects were joined together and randomized to the control (n = 40) or experimental group (n = 41). Using Lind’s Moral Competence Test (MCT) the author compared the experimental group, in which KMDD was applied and the control group without KMDD. Comparative analysis of the C-score was found that the experimental group scored significantly higher – there was identified a significant effect on the moral judgment competence of students (p < 0.001), even five months after the end of KMDD intervention (p = 0.001). The moral judgment competence of helping-professions students can be effectively strengthened using KMDD, which seems to represent an effective alternative to traditional forms of discussion. © 2016, Ecozone, OAIMDD.
