Local government reforms in Estonia: institutional context, intentions and outcomes
... objectives and results of the local government amalgamation reform of 2017 as well as the theoretical and practical possibilities to re-establish central-local balances in Estonia. The analysis draws on institutional theory, which explains the effect of deep value patterns and concrete political choices on the institutionalization logic followed after the 1993 reform. It is concluded that the local elites retaining their old value patterns will downplay the effect of the 2017 reform.

When and why regional clusters become basic building blocks of modern economy
... of economic projects (cluster initiatives). We examine the properties of clusters corresponding to each class and demonstrate their role in the geographical and functional fragmentation of production, in the integration of local exporters into global value chains, and in bridging communication gaps and developing collaboration among economic agents. We show that clusters occupy a central place among various types of business networks and have a comparative edge making them key building blocks of the ...
Factors of self-actualization of student youth in the context of cross-cultural interaction and the mastering of a macro-mediator language
... “Degree of autonomy / conformism towards cultural-group influence”, “Predominant focus on positive / negative experience”, “Detachment / involvement in the process of cross-cultural interactions”. Qualitative differences in the system of values of young representatives of the main ethnocultural groups of Crimea, Russians and Crimean Tatars, towards mastering the Russian language as a macro-mediator have been defined. Having analysed the data obtained during the interviews, the author ...

The solution of such problems is sensitive even to a small change in the values of the input data, and so we do not guarantee an acceptable approximation to the answer at the level of the existing error in the measurement of initial values. The paper discusses the use of the instability effect for the synthesis of cryptographic ...
On determining the import-replacement share for mechanical engineering in the Kaliningrad region
... export-import flows in mechanical engineering products of the Kaliningrad region to its consumption. Such methodology makes it possible to determine the optimal import-replacing proportion of mechanical engineering in the region, which corresponds to a value of ≥ 50%. The established import-replacing share of regional engineering industry can be achieved due to a mechanism for ensuring the spatial and economic collaboration between import replacing entities of the regional economic system.

The problem of meaning in Social Semiotics: deep semiotics as a conceptual extension of Social Semiotics
... by denoting them. Iconic signs are based upon resemblance, index signs upon a causal relationship, and symbols on social conventions. Language is the most important system of symbolisation. Indeed, language serves as a guide to the systems of rules, values, and socio-cultural practices. In this paper, I present a model of deep semiotics, which is interpreted as a semantic structure of social experience objectified into a sign. This structure includes the material form, the referential meaning, and ...
Social media interfaces as a representation of cultural meanings

I analysed Facebook and VKontakte – two large social media platforms originating from the countries with different cultural values and social expectations. My focus was on the principal categories of identification and virtual self-presentation. These are gender, sexuality, marital status, attitudes, and personal preferences. The comparative analysis of interfaces was carried ...
The Flow of Gas with Dispersed Particles in a Cylindrical Channel at a Subsonic Speed
... presence of dispersed particles in the gas. The problem of identifying the dynamic characteristics of dispersed particle- containing inert gas feed into ladles and the converter is used to improve the accuracy of inert gas dosing. The relevant boundary value problem has no analytical solution. We consider the dynamics of a steady flow of a perfect gas containing dispersed particle in a vertical channel. Numerical methods are used to obtain a solution to the boundary value problem in the Mathcad environment....

However, the philosophical ideas of Kant’s system can serve as basis for a theory of grammatical moods. Kant’s revolutionary idea of values, knowledge, and norms as three aspects of existential reality lead to a conclusion that modality and moods are not identical, despite being interrelated. The categories of modality do not express the essence of moods but rather the conditions for ...
