When CB (chemical and biological) armor is applied as protection against CB accidents and CB terrorism and to remove the consequences of contamination, one of the principal activities is performing final decontamination. For this purpose, caporit (calcium hypochlorite) in water solution is, we believe, the most frequently used material. This is an inorganic substance with active chlorine. When solution is properly prepared, it is useful, economical, effective, and applicable for decontamination and desinfection activities. Production of this material consists of finding production materials, collecting them, proper equipment use, quantifying, preparing both the production area and the equipment, solution production, effectiveness control, and, finally, the use of product made. Technology depends on quality and quantity of repro material in disposal, aperature, and equipment, employees' education, business organization, and protective measures during the working process. In terms of highly-toxic chemical and biological contamination it is necessary to perform chemical and biological decontamination as soon as possible. © 2015, HARD Publishing Company.

This paper presents the application of life cycle assessment (LCA) modelling used in the process of comparing the best technology for disposal municipal solid waste (MSW) in the Banjaluka region. Three scenarios were considered: unsanitary landfill, sanitary landfill with gas collection and burning on flare and sanitary landfill with energy recovery. The Banjaluka landfill is currently an unsanitary landfill because a system for collecting and treating gas has not yet been implemented. The environmental impact from the current waste management system is dominated by the landfill, which has no gas collection. The construction of the gas collecting system with flare is planned for 2015 (70% efficiency, during 30 year period) which will make the Banjaluka landfill a sanitary landfill. The long-term plan encompasses using the landfill gas for heat generation (39% efficiency) and electric energy (19% efficiency), as well as improvement of leachate collection system (from present 60% to 80%) and gas collection (from present 70% to 85%). Landfill with energy recovery leads to saved emission and avoided impact potential in several environmental categories. A sensitivity analysis is applied to the sanitary landfill with gas collection and burning on flare. The results of sensitivity analysis for sanitary landfill with flare indicate that the overall environmental impact is sensitive to the gas collection efficiency, bulk density and period of gas collection.

3D scanning is one of the basic methods to gather data for reverse engineering. The main drawback of 3D scanning is that its output - the point cloud - can never be used directly to define surfaces or solids useful to reconstruct the electronic 3D model of the scanned part. The paper presents a piece of software designed in VisualLISP for AutoCAD, software that acts as a point cloud to 3D primitives converter. The novelty consists of the method used to find the parameters of the primitive that best fits to the point cloud: the mass properties of regions are used to find the center of a cone's cross section. Parts have been scanned and the point clouds processed. The results obtained prove the correctness of the algorithm and of the method applied. A piece of software that processes the point cloud in order to find the 3D primitive that it fits the best has been developed. The output is the 3D primitive that successfully and accurate replaces the point cloud. Some adjacent tools were designed, so the entire software package becomes a useful tool for the reverse engineering user. The ways the researches can be continued and developed are foreseen, as well. © (2013) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.

Although a large body of research exists concerning connections between personality traits and blood types, no studies can be found within the literature on the links between morality and one’s blood type. We have conducted research examining whether blood type has any impact on the degree to which moral foundations, according to Haidt (Science 316:998–1002, 2007), are observable in an individual. Our study focused on 240 adult male and female subjects, with an average age of 43.47 years; each group was based on the ABO blood type system and consisted of 60 subjects in total. Based on the data obtained, we can conclude that there is a connection between the Harm and Purity moral foundations and blood group. © 2014, Springer Science+Business Media Dordrecht.

Is it ethical for individuals, or for society generally, to take advantage of technologies that will change our entire notion of what it means to age? Is it okay to want to live forever? The problem of relationship between Psychology, Ethics, religion and Science is clearly reflected by this question, since religion clearly answers them, while modern science is pursuing them by large steps. Ethics inherently cannot provide an unequivocal answer, psychology speaks about emotions as stirred with every individual by the presumption of death, religion clearly answers them, the Orthodox viewpoint has been presented as the least elaborated by literature.
