Lack of Storage Space for Dangerous Goods: Case Study of the Pristina International Airport "Adem Jashari"

While Kosovo’s flights are increasing and there is economic development, it is very important to build a warehouse and store dangerous goods which may develop the increase of new business. This paper aims to raise the awareness of competent persons in constructing a warehouse of landfills for dangerous goods in PIA. The importance of this paper is to present the current situation in the Airport in terms of air transportation and having enough space for the storage of dangerous goods. The questionnaire helped us to enrich our research as much as possible and to get acquainted with the workers who are part of PIA's. During the data analysis, we found that 45.92% of the respondents stated that it is important to have a dedicated warehouse for dangerous goods, regardless of whether the location is inside or outside the airport. Therefore, the construction of a warehouse for these goods will affect the reduction of airport operating costs and the creation of new agreements with international airlines. Finally, it facilitates the work of local businesses in terms of importing and exporting dangerous goods while opening new jobs for young generations. The current staffs at Pristina International Airport are professional and their refresh training is made from the LKIA training centre which means that there will be no expenses.

The influence of educational technology on affective education in maritime education and training (MET)

The influence of educational technology on affective education in maritime education and training (MET)

Article 68 of China Maritime Law does not clarify the liability of the shipper on violat- ing the obligation of properly packaging or making dangerous goods marks and labels, which is a legal loophole and produces a lot of problems in practice. In addition, article 66 of the China Maritime Code regulates “the shipper shall indemnify the carrier against any loss resulting from inadequacy of packing or inaccuracies in the abovementioned information”, which means the principle of strict liability provisions shall be applicable and the shipper bears the liability to pay compensation for breach of normal goods pack- aging. Zhou (2005) argues that, in case the shipper, failing to fulfill its obligations to these two, causes damage to the carrier, the shipper shall bear fault liability to pay com- pensation instead of strict liability. It is essential that the dangerous goods shipper shall undertake strict liability. To summarize, marking and labeling dangerous goods properly are important premises of dangerous goods transportation safety. No matter whether there is fault on the duty, the shipper shall be liable for compensation.

Research of protectionism in shipping policy

Research of protectionism in shipping policy

The purpose of the IMO Port Recommendation is to serve as a standard framework for use in the preparation of Port Regulations to ensure the safe transport, handling and storage of dangerous sabstances in port areas. The IMO Port Recommendations are not supposed to be copied un­ changed since they take into consideration the fact that prevailing special conditions on local or national level would not allow a totally uniform set of rules. They are a guide, and the Ports Authority has to revise its own safety rules in line with the IMO Port Recommendations. The revised Port Regulations must adopt the IMDG Code, as the principal code of practice which should be used as a guide where applicable and be made mandatory where requi­ red ( e.g. classification, packing, marking, labelling, and placarding and documentation ). In addition, the regulations must subdivide dangerous goods as to direct delivery, quantity limitation, allocation of special handling and storage spaces, documentary and administra­ tive requirements, operational procedure and other crite­

Stacking of Dangerous Goods in Accordance with United Nations Stacking Recommendation

Stacking of Dangerous Goods in Accordance with United Nations Stacking Recommendation

The United Nations (UN) has set down a list of testing recommendations for the transport of dangerous goods. Dangerous goods are any substances that can cause harm to people, animals or the environment. The UN provides a list of substances that can be classified as dangerous goods [1]. These test recommendations are not always clearly written and can leave room for different interpretations. One part in particular is the stacking test described in section 6.1.5.6 of the 16 th edition of the UN recommendations on the transport of dangerous goods. This method suggests using a compression tester to simulate packaging being warehoused or stored with other packagings stacked on top of it. For plastic jerricans, the is conducted run for a period of 28 days. The weight of the load should be equal to the weight of similar packagesstacked on top of the package during transport. The height, including the test sample, should not be less than 3 meters at 40 o C. This recommendation fails to address how the load should be applied. The type of compression being either guided, or unguided as specified in ISO 16104, and the use of a stacking fixture to simulate the lowest part of the package that would come into contact with the testing sample during stacking. This is the case with jerricans, as they are designed to interlock (nest) into each other which would not be properly simulated by a flat plate coming into contact with the package to be tested. The purpose of this experiment is to show the potential deviation of results when testing the same packagings under the different acceptable Conditions as mentioned ISO standard and the UN recommendations.

The country's declaration of independence necessarily noted the need for improvement and completion of company law. This is not only due to changing political and legal circumstances but also because of UNMIK legislation - Regulation on commercial companies, despite modern bases, it was not in line with economic developments. Although the Assembly of Kosovo, then still under the administration of UNMIK - Regulation (20 September 2007) adopt the Law no. 02 / L-123 [1] on Business Law It had to be amended and supplemented in 2011. Enclosure of this law created a good balance with the requirements for alignment with EU legislation and economic development needs of the country. To avoid overloading the functioning of the legal structure of companies with highly articulated, attended a legislative policy of not foreseen in the law unenforceable provisions in the country's economic circumstances. The law "On traders' standards reflect best practices of the EU. According to information we have obtained from the Ministry of Trade and Industry, the department has undertaken a series of actions in order to change the current law on commercial companies. Because it is only a draft it appears that the changes are not so great on the current law. It what is not changed either in this draft is the fact that the partnership (in the draft now called partnership) and commendatory have not a legal entity.

A Framework for Mobile Learning for the enhancement of Learning in Higher Education

A Framework for Mobile Learning for the enhancement of Learning in Higher Education

This framework highlights how mobile learning can be used to support face-to-face interaction through a course titled “Internet Technology.” Mobile learning activities were designed and developed to complement the three primary learning modes of face-to-face interaction, which were, lecture, activities, and discussion. Mobile learning has become an emerging tool that offers significant learning experience to enhance student learning in higher education institutions. Many studies have revealed that mobile learning can support and enhance learning in higher education if properly designed. However, although m-learning has been used to support a wide range of learning activities, there has been little research done to investigate the students’ requirements or to understand what types of mobile applications students need to use, or to examine how mobile educational software can be designed to effectively support learning (Devinder & Zaitun, 2006). In response to this gap in the literature, this framework shows how mobile learning can be used to enhance the overall learning experience of students and teachers in higher education.

Electrical Equipment and Electronic and their Impact of Waste in the Republic of Kosovo

In the territory of the Republic of Kosovo, until December 31, 2020, must be collected at least 4 kilograms of household waste per capita per year . Revision of Directive 2002/96 / EC showed MPEE fixed targets such collection does not address the problem in the best way. A large part of the Member States has failed to meet its target, while for some other countries, it definitely was not a challenge. Therefore, the proposal for revision of the directive is that the collection targets to be a certain percentage of equipment put on the market, and that 65 % of the average amount of electrical and electronic equipment put on the market during the past two years. Research shows that families, as well as companies, have large amounts of equipment to throw , so that this target can be met quickly.

The Existence of Hinduism in the Legal System State Administration in Indonesia

With the issuance and enactment of Law Number 14 of 1970 concerning Judicial Power, which was subsequently replaced with Law Number 4 of 2004, then based on Article 10 of the two Laws, there appears to be a legal institution as the executor of judicial authority that can be used as a forum in enforcing Hindu legal norms. The intended container has not been given use even though there have been proposals through the Ministry of Religion. From the time the two laws came into force, only the Islamic community can apply the article above, so that based on Law Number 7 of 1989, as if Article 10 of Law Number 14 of 1970 relates to the Religious Courts, only as a forum Islamic law enforcement agencies. With regard to Article 10 of Law 14 of 1970 yuncto article 10 of Law 4 of 2004 relating to the Religious Courts, until now Hindus have not been permitted to apply, the process of institutionalizing Hindu legal norms has become unclear and less stable, this is due to In the implementation of the law in everyday life Hindus rely on religious law, but in termination of a case District Court Judges ... relying only on jurisprudence in practice can lead to or give birth to new jurisprudence that may not be coherent with ... the Hindu law he adopted. This is easy to understand because in dealing with various legal issues, the Judge no longer feels obliged to use existing sources of written law (Hindu Law) ... except what is obtained in the education period and the books of reference that are available and understood ( Pudja et al, 2002: 11).

Cost Effective Utilization of Transportation Services in Today’s Business Environment-A Logistics Overview

distance. ( INCTAD review of Maritime transport 2009) These ships and boats use oceans, seas, rivers and lakes as the route for its movement. Cargo gets loaded and unloaded in ports, hence it’s important to have a well develop channels, docks and dredges help to facilitate maritime movement as well as reduces the threat of discontinuity. The major cost factor when it comes to maritime mode is the high cost of construction of the terminals, cost of construction of port and the cost involved in its maintenance and improvements. But for organization maritime shipment is the most cost effective mode of transportation as this mode can carry high volume of shipment from long distance at the lowest cost possible. Maritime transport is basically associated with industries such as steel, oil, petrochemicals, construction, steel etc. To be competitive in today’s scenario the shipping corporations use large scaled ships and work on a cooperative mode with other operators. Service quality is also an important factor which influence consignors and consignees to select a shipping company for movement of goods apart from the cost of shipment.
