[en] In this paper the author would like to inform about the possibilities of treatment of prostate cancer in Slovakia with a focus on radiation therapy (radiotherapy). The aim of radiotherapy is to achieve the highest concentration of radiation in the irradiated area while maximally examining the surrounding healthy tissue. Technological development and radiobiology enable the introduction of new treatments and standards in the treatment that are more effective, more gentle, and reduce the impact of healthy tissues. In the lecture, the author wants to approach contemporary modern imaging techniques such as IMRT (Intensity Modulated Radiotherapy), IGRT (Image Guided Radiotherapy) within external radiotherapy. At the same time, attention to brachytherapy, its indications, the process of application and the role in the treatment of prostate carcinoma, especially the LDR brachytherapy using iodine grains, which has been available in Slovakia since 2007.

[en] Member states of European Union (EU) put bigger stress to the using of renewable energy sources (RES). Ambitious goal of EU till 2010 was to achieve 12 % rate of RES on the whole energy consumption. Therefore there were created many institutional and financial tools and schemes for support of RES using and they will be important part of the energy sources structure. One of the basic priorities of energetic policy in Slovakia is increasing of the RES rate on the production of heat and electricity with goal to create adequate additional sources necessary for covering of domestic demand. Presented contribution is orientated to the various mechanisms that are using for support of renewable energy sources. That means state regulation in this area generally and basic types of state donation policy in the frame of European Union and their consequences on the market with renewable energy sources.

[en] The first geothermal power station in Slovakia will be built near Kosice close to the villages of Bidovce, Durkov and Olsovany, where is the biggest and so-far unused source of geothermal energy in central Europe with the heat input of 100 MW. Potential of geothermal energy in the Slovak Republic is reviewed.
[en] The basis of the bioethanol production is the agriculture, mostly the corn and wheat growing. With the analysis of their domestic harvest results, the process of the starch formation and the chemical-thermodynamical processes of the alcohol's fermentation, we calculate the annual amount of the producible bioethanol on average and its energy. We determine the specific values of the CO2 cycle. We examine the energetic possibilities of total substitution of the 2 billion litres of domestic petrol consumption with bioethanol. (authors)
