    Purpose: There is an emphasis that planning sustainable development is conditioned by external and internal factors. The basis for such planning is a range of an area research which can distinguish the groups of similar units and quantify their stages of development. The aim of the article is to present the author’s methodological proposal in the field of management and development planning, taking the opinions of the commune inhabitants. Design/Methodology/Approach: The paper presents the application of changes in planning the sustainable development, in the context of a stable economy. In present conditions, there is a lack of problem identification, especially social and economic. The proposed procedure of methodology on the basis of inhabitants’ opinions of the communes of Swietokrzyskie Voivodeship situated in protected areas, such as landscape parks and regions of protected landscape is an element of a wider research problem. At present this problem has and is going to have a more significant meaning, the participation of local communities in creating their own development. Findings: The problem has already had and will continue to have a growing importance, because it will no longer be possible to prevent the participation of local societies in creating their own development. Practical Implications: The realisation of sustainable development will require a total change of the orientation of all the parties interested, according to the social and economic problems (basic principles). Originality/Value: In the majority of the recommended planning procedures, there is a possibility of economy improvement and contribution to the improvement of social and economic welfare.peer-reviewe

    Access to sport facilities, social and intergenerational integration : a case study

    Purpose: The paper aims at analysing the effects of the introduction of the “Moje Boisko-Orlik 2012” program and its impact on the social and intergenerational integration of Polish residents. Design/Methodology/Approach: The implementation of “Moje Boisko-Orlik 2012” program was an opportunity to increase the level of social and intergenerational integration. The paper presents the main assumptions of the program, social and intergenerational integration defined through the prism of the participation of communities and different age groups in sporting activity. In addition, for the years 2009-2014, an analysis of the number of beneficiaries of "Orliki" and indicators of their use in the cross-section of voivodships were conducted. Findings: Intergenerational relations are constantly changing, and the aging of society have a major impact on them. Intergenerational integration occurs, e.g. in places such as "Orliki”. The hypothesis on the positive impact of the program on the social and intergenerational integration of the population was verified on the basis of available data on the sporting activity of the population and the number of sports facilities created. Practical Implications: The authors’ observations point to address the subject of sporting activity of older people in a broader context. Sporting activity is an excellent platform for communication between generations. It should be used as often as possible for the benefit of the society. Originality/Value: The value added of this paper is to draw attention to the role of physical activity in shaping intergenerational relations and social integration. In addition, it seems interesting to use conditional formatting as a method of data analysis.peer-reviewe

    Identification of a fraudulent organizational culture in enterprises listed in Warsaw stock exchange

    Purpose: This publication aims to verify the research hypothesis that it is possible to create a model predicting a fraudulent organizational culture in an enterprise. Design/Methodology/Approach: We estimated a logit model that would warn against fraud by employees, fraudulent financial reporting, and direct manipulation of the financial statements. The model would only caution about the possibility of the fraud risk and force a human analysis of such an entity. Findings: We searched for scams in the press and police investigations that ended with charges against directors, managers, and employees of enterprises where there was financial damage on a large scale. We were mainly looking for intentional and deliberate frauds. Practtical Implications: We created a model that warns which companies may have an unfair corporate culture for Polish companies listed on the WSE. Originality/Value: An element of the novelty in the publication is an attempt of a comprehensive approach to fraud, i.e., going beyond manipulating the financial result or penalties by the commission supervising the stock exchanges and financial markets.It is also one of the first fraud detection models which was designed for companies listed on the Warsaw Stock Exchange.peer-reviewe

    The LHCb upgrade I

    No full text
    International audienceThe LHCb upgrade represents a major change of the experiment. The detectors have been almost completely renewed to allow running at an instantaneous luminosity five times larger than that of the previous running periods. Readout of all detectors into an all-software trigger is central to the new design, facilitating the reconstruction of events at the maximum LHC interaction rate, and their selection in real time. The experiment's tracking system has been completely upgraded with a new pixel vertex detector, a silicon tracker upstream of the dipole magnet and three scintillating fibre tracking stations downstream of the magnet. The whole photon detection system of the RICH detectors has been renewed and the readout electronics of the calorimeter and muon systems have been fully overhauled. The first stage of the all-software trigger is implemented on a GPU farm. The output of the trigger provides a combination of totally reconstructed physics objects, such as tracks and vertices, ready for final analysis, and of entire events which need further offline reprocessing. This scheme required a complete revision of the computing model and rewriting of the experiment's software
