  • CREATING COMFORT AT THE WORKPLACE AS A COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE OF THE
           BUSINESS ORGANIZATION ON LABOR MARKET

    • Authors: Aleksandar Davchev
      Pages: 15 - 19
      Abstract: Creating a work comfort should be a conscious and purposeful process that serves the right and inverse of the "worker-employer" system. Efficiency, quality, and sustainability in work relationships can be seen as a function of the efforts made to create an environment that saves the worker's psycho physiological status and contributes to his / her confidence, positiveness and dedication to the workplace. These processes should not be underestimated or chaotic, but constructive and basic and task for the managerial staff.

  • SOME CHARACTERISTICS OF PROJECT CONTROL ACTIVITY

    • Authors: Evgeniy Stoyanov
      Pages: 21 - 28
      Abstract: The material considers the main activity of which society expects more results, but because it is not known well, the project realization at this stage does not show high efficiency. In the focus of the material is the project-control activity. The purpose of its development is to reveal the difference from ordinary control features. The tasks, that the target determines, are purposed to the appearance of individual factors in the process of project-control activity and finding the basis of their detailed analysis and management. The disclosure of specific details enables the “project control”  to be viewed in a new and more critical way; and to think more in-depth and more strategic for the activity that it materializes.

  • AGRICULTURAL MARKETS FOR THE SMALL AND THE MEDIUM ENTERPRISES

    • Authors: Natalia Stoyanova
      Pages: 29 - 36
      Abstract: In many countries, and virtually every less developed country (LDC), agriculture is the biggest single industry. Agriculture typically employs over fifty percent of the labour force in LDCs with industry and commerce dependence upon it as a source of raw materials and as a market for manufactured goods. Hence many argue that the development of agriculture and the marketing systems, which impinge upon it, are part of the heart of the economic growth process in LDCs. Moreover in LDCs the consumer frequently spends in excess of fifty percent of the household's income on basic foodstuffs - much of which is inadequate both in quality and nutritional content. By contrast, the americans spend approximately twelve percent of their total disposable income on food. In Western Europe the figure ranges from about sixteen to nineteen percent of disposable income. Furthermore, whereas in developed countries the poor are relatively few in number, and therefore it is economically possible to establish special food distribution programmes to meet their needs, the scale of poverty in most LDCs is such that the commercial marketing system must be relied upon to perform the task of food distribution to poor and not-so-poor alike. This being so, it is imperative that the marketing system performs efficiently.

  • IMBALANCES IN INTERNATIONAL ECONOMIC RELATIONS AS A FACTOR FOR THE
           DEVELOPMENT OF SECURITY POLICIES

    • Authors: Zlatka Kushelieva
      Pages: 59 - 64
      Abstract: At present, security in all its forms is one of the most important conditions for peace fruitful work of the world community. It has forms of manifestations in various spheres of public activity. In existing permanent tension between the great powers was unquestionable role of imbalances in economic relations between them and she continues to create and naturally always creates such tension, which is straining international security. It is natural to assume that the two phenomena – security and imbalances in international economic relations – there exists a direct link and reciprocal dependence – the more powerful in scope are the economic imbalances, the greater is the manifestation of uncertainty and vice versa. In general, economic imbalances have multilateral impact on uncertainty. Typically firstly occurs economic uncertainties. International security requires elimination or reduction of imbalances in international economic relations as a destabilizing factor security.

  • MELNIK VINE-GROWING REGION – HISTORY AND TRADITIONS

    • Authors: Radoslava Ganeva
      Pages: 113 - 124
      Abstract: The region of Melnik (Southwest Bulgaria) has exclusively appropriate climate for wine growing. Its borders are defined by the dissemination of the wide Melnik grape vine, revealed by experts as an old local variety. Few are the wine-growing centers that carry such an effective ampelographic tradition. A few are the viticulture centers, bearing such effective tradition. The vine is grown here from the Thracian antiquity and is the basis for a livelihood, preserved and retransmitted for many generations. It is characterized by a specialization in the production and marketing of high quality red dry wines.The article deals with the development of the Melnik vineyard as a result of different political and economic conditions in the course of historical development. Various archival materials, specialized studies and personal fieldwork research have been used.

  • TRACKING THE PROCESSES OF MELANODIN FORMATION IN COFFEE

    • Authors: Snezhana Ivanova
      Pages: 137 - 146
      Abstract: Melanoidins are high molecular brown colored substances and products of sugar-amine reaction of Maillard. They are formed during roasting a green coffee beans under different thermal regimes of heat treatment. In the technological production of different types coffee beverages, the coffee powder is subjected to after-heat treatment. In these additional operations again become active processes of melanoidin formation and their changing their structures. This is changes of the Melanoidins have different effects on human health. It is therefore important to know their chemical structures and changes. Previous studies have shown that polysaccharides, proteins and chlorogenic acids are included in the formation of these melanoidins. However, the precise structures of coffee melanoidins and mechanisms involved in the formation are not yet clarified. This article systematize available information and provides an overview of research obtained so far on the structure of coffee melanoidins and mechanisms of their formation and potential health effects.
