    Attitudes towards COVID-19 era

    Get PDF
    The SARS CoV-2 coronavirus pandemic and the COVID-19 disease impacted the educational system and Higher Education Institutions (HEIs). University institutionalism, understood as academic, professional and labor regulations, can be explained from its attitudinal dimensions. In this way, the provisions against or in favor of anti-COVID-19 policies, consisting of distancing and confinement, anticipate risk scenarios of contagion, illness and death. Attitudes towards anti-COVID-19 institutionalism predict scenarios of stigma, entrepreneurship, innovation, training or performance. The importance of attitudes, as long as they are measured as anti- or pro-confinement and distancing dispositions in the face of pandemic, lies in their explanatory capacity for risk exposure behaviors. Therefore, the diagnosis of attitudes in students selected for professional practices and social services in public health institutions will allow us to appreciate the intentions and decisions of exposure to risks associated with the health crisis. The objective of the present work was to specify a model for the study of attitudes towards the effects of the pandemic on the environment. An exploratory, cross-sectional and correlational work was carried out with 100 students, considering their confinement and intensive use of electronic technologies, devices and networks. A factorial structure was found that explained 35% of the total variance, although the research design limited the results to the study setting, suggesting the extension of the work towards the contrast of the proposed model

    The Possibilities of the Legal Regulation of Cryptocurrency

    No full text
    This article examines the current legal regulation of cryptocurrency in foreign countries, in the EU, and in Lithuania. The aim of the article is to evaluate the possibilities of the legal regulation of cryptocurrency in Lithuania by comparing the experiences of various jurisdictions. As is well known, the popularity and the number of cryptocurrencies is growing. This poses new challenges for authorities facing new issues, including growing funding for criminal groups or terrorist organizations, frauds, scams, and cases of money laundering. In some instances, countries ban cryptocurrencies for their own security reasons, yet this could also be viewed to represent fear of losing control over citizens and finances. Some countries try to regulate this new innovation and implement it into regular life instantly, though not always successfully. For this reason, the majority of countries, including the EU, is taking a slower, more careful approach. The EU has some Directives in place to combat criminal activity using cryptocurrencies, and the ECJ has ruled that cryptocurrency is exempt from VAT

    Innovative development of renewable energy during the crisis period and its impact on the environment

    Get PDF
    CC BY 4.0The article examines the innovative trends in the renewable power generation, taking into account the impact of crises, as well as the impact of renewable energy on air pollution in the world (environmental change). Hierarchical agglomerative and iterative methods of cluster analysis, as well as econometric models were used to test the hypotheses. Carbon dioxide emissions and renewable power generation for 78 countries during 2000-2020 are taken into account as the database of the study. The results showed that there are groups of countries with sharp, high, moderate and low growth rates of renewable power generation. In addition, the results of econometric analysis indicate that the growth of renewable power generation does not always cause a decrease in carbon dioxide emissions. For a number of countries (Australia, Canada, Mexico, Poland) such connection is not essential at all. The results of the study can be useful in shaping and adapting environmental strategies around the world

    Electronic Voting in Adopting Resolutions of Limited Companies: The Example of Estonian Law

    Get PDF
    CC BY 4.0In the wake of the COVID-19 crisis that began in 2020, countries all over the world had to develop new solutions in legislation to replace various traditionally physical operations with digital solutions. Estonia, with rules in the field of company law and in holding shareholders’ meetings, was no exception. In May 2020, new regulation was introduced into Estonian law, allowing shareholders to participate in meetings using digital means. Although electronic voting itself was already allowed under Estonian law before 2020, the new situation raised a number of legal issues. This article addresses these issues and possible solutions with regard to the legal perspective of electronic voting. As the law does not contain precise requirements for holding an electronic vote, there are many aspects that must be considered in order to comply with the general principles of company law, e.g., how to identify the person giving their vote, and how to ensure the security and reliability of electronic voting. Based on the analysis in this article, the procedure must ensure the identification of shareholders as well as the reliability of casting votes, but must also be proportionate for achieving these aims

    Energy Oriented Concepts and Other SMART WORLD Trends as Game Changers of Co-Production - Reality or Future?

    Get PDF
    CC BY 4.0The aim of the study is to identify, map and assess the maturity and impact level of the specific energy-oriented economy and other SMART management concepts and social, technological, finance (economical), environmental, and communication (S.T.F.E.C.) trends which arose from the dynamic development and spread of the Industry 4.0 revolution on processes of effective competitiveness and the creation of modern enterprises. The article presents data and information obtained thanks to an in-depth review of the literature (extensive desk research), as well as that obtained as part of the conducted CAWI pilot study. The authors aim to search for answers to three specific research questions, concluding that recently, special attention is paid to such issues as co-creation and co-production, energy-oriented and circular economy, eco-energy, and sustainability. The findings of this study clearly show that in the SMART WORLD era, there is a growing interest in cooperation, co-creation, co-production issues, and usage of modern technologies and SMART management concepts typical of the Industry 4.0 era. The main reason for this is that enterprises strive to optimize and maximize their efficiency in the processes of competitiveness creation. Researched data allows us to conclude that openness to social, environmental, and technological trends and issues, with an approach based on sustainable and eco-energy-oriented development, play an increasingly important role. However, the level of their importance, implementation level, and maturity differ depending on the type of organization or industry. For example, service and trade companies more often than pro- duction companies use and rate the usefulness of social trends higher (reality = mainstream orientation for S&T companies and a future orientation for production companies), while production companies apply a more balanced approach, showing greater commitment to economic technological, environmental and financial trends (reality = mainstream orientation for production companies and a future orientation for trade and services companies). Given that the study shows and describes preliminary research results (pilot studies), the authors plan to undertake further efforts in the in-depth scientific exploration of the issues concerned, including, which is particularly important, conducting full-scale research

    Linking Educational Tourism to School Curriculum: Elaborating a Nuclear Tourism Route in Ignalina Nuclear Power Plant Region

    Get PDF
    CC BY 4.0In recent decades, learning at museums and tourist sites has become increasingly relevant when emphasis has been placed on greater collaboration between the formal and informal education institutions and stakeholders looking for new opportunities for learning outside of school. Educational and learning activities in informal settings become an important domain of educational and cultural tourism, and school tourism is considered a valuable segment of the tourism industry. The authors of this chapter present a case for creating the atomic/nuclear tourism virtual route Atomic Visaginas in Ignalina Power Plant (INPP) region in Lithuania. The research question raised in this chapter is—what are the opportunities, strategies, and challenges associated with linking educational tourism activities and products to the curriculum of formal education? Objectives of the research presented in the chapter reflect the authors’ efforts (1) to reveal opportunities for creating connections between formal school curriculum and nonformal and informal learning outside the school in the settings of educational tourism destinations; (2) to delineate the specific features of nuclear tourism in Lithuania by employing a literature review and referring to findings of participatory action research with the involvement of stakeholders from Ignalina Power Plant (INPP) region; (3) to propose pedagogical strategies and solutions to establish links between geography and history curricula and the content of the nuclear tourist route in Lithuania

    The aim of this article is to reveal the peculiarities of the public announcement of musical works created by authors, analyzing the theoretical aspects, related case law, and revealing a specific case that has taken place in Lithuania. The first chapter presents the concept of publicity. It is also explained that the groups of performers’ and authors’ property rights are different. This article deals with the regulation of performers’ property rights and the protection of the personal rights of non-performers, as well as the issue of entrenchment in national legislation, whilst examining some of the practical aspects of public announcement. The explanations of the Supreme Court of Lithuania are presented. In particular, the explanations of the Supreme Court of Lithuania delineate how the court delimits the concepts of public performance of a work and reproduction of a work. Furthermore, the explanations of the Supreme Court of Lithuania that both the right of public performance and the right of public announcement are exclusive and in themselves property are considered. The third chapter deals with the implementation of song copyright by studying the case of the “Great Family Defense March” in the Republic of Lithuania, which reveals problematic aspects of song authors’ rights to their work, such as whether authors are entitled to remuneration regardless of whether the event is paid or free
