Title : Analyzing Two Sonnets by Milton: VII & XIX
Country : Saudi Arabia
Authors : Gassim H. Dohal
: 10.9790/0837-20110103   logo

Abstract: In this paper, I will use the late-written Sonnet XIX and the early Sonnet VII so as to analyze what comes over John Milton's poetic creativity. Sonnet VII concerns with time and how it passes hurriedly; Sonnet XIX with Milton's blindness. From the theme of each sonnet, we can realize the seriousness and depth of poetic matter though at the end of each sonnet; Milton becomes more aware of his situation, his God and even the solution. Indeed, Milton's early poems, particularly those written before 1632 are not impressive, though there are many good lines. Hence, he realizes that he has accomplished little of what he has hoped to do when he writes Sonnet VII. In my analysis, I will compare between these two sonnets: VII & XIX, and discuss how they reflect the main aspects and poetic differences between Milton's early and late poetry.

Abstract: 'Wetland' a relatively new term occupies a significant position as natural resources in our state. The importance of wetland has been increasing day by day due to its role on environment and economy of a region. But the growing pressure of human interference has been degrading the wetland environment constantly and it has posed a serious threat to the biodiversity of the wetland. An attempt has been made in this paper to know the status of wetland and analyze its environmental degradation. The study tries to put forth some eco-friendly measures of conservation and management for sustainable development of the wetland habitats and the people around the wetland. The study is based on both primary and secondary data.

Title : The Context of Inter-Governmental Relations in Zimbabwe Reflections from the Constitution of Zimbabwe Amendment Number 20 Of 2013
Country : Zimbabwe
Authors : Chakunda Vincent
: 10.9790/0837-20113741   logo

Abstract: Zimbabwe is politically and constitutionally a unitary, democratic and sovereign state with a three tier governmental structure: national government; provincial and metropolitan councils, and local government (rural district councils and various types of urban councils) according to the Constitution [Amendment No. 20] of 2013. This paper explores the composition, structure and the legal basis of the three tiers of government. Diagrammatic illustrations were used to depict these tiers more elaborately, highlighting focal points of power, authority, accountability and responsibility and how the system is synergised and synchronised from the national to the lower levels. Brief historical reviews are additionally used to locate the transformation of these structures through the vicissitudes of colonial discriminatory and racist structures to post independent African government supposedly modelled to dismantle the colonial system with fair, impartial and equitable structures established on the basis of human rights, improved access for all with important non racist, non ethnic codes and disregarding colour or creed.

Title : Towards Intergovernmental Balance Of Power in Zimbabwe. Opportunities, Challenges and Critical Success Factors
Country : India
Authors : Chakunda Vincent
: 10.9790/0837-20114248    logo

Abstract: The study of inter-government relations (IGR) presents a dynamic and complex discourse aimed at understanding political and administrative power dimensions and distribution between different tiers, spheres or levels of government. IGR reflects the horizontal and vertical power dynamics between central, state/ provincial/ regional and local government and the consequences of this relationship on the degree of autonomy and discretion that sub national government tiers enjoy from central government control and direction. Anderson (1960) argued that the term IGR designate a body of activities or interactions between governmental units of all types and levels or the totality of all permutations and combinations of relations among units of government in a government system either unitary or federal. The context of IGR discourse is undergoing radical change and transformation affecting perceptions about the role and functions of different tiers of government. This discourse is occurring in the context of ongoing global change on the relative efficacy and the relevance of the nation state vis a vis growing appreciation of local government capacity given increasing challenges of globalization. National governments in the face of these dynamics and in search of policy and administrative efficiency are exiting from their traditional roles with massive shifts from centralization, overregulation and other protectionist tendencies.

Abstract: Marginalized people have little control over their lives which makes them handicap in delving contribution to society. They are prevented from participating in local life, which in turn leads to further isolation. It has a tremendous impact on development of human life, as well as on society at large. In this paper, we have systematically reviewed the scientific literature on marginalization, its nature, types of marginalization, marginalized groups and then we have focused on one marginalized group who suffer from HIV/AIDS related stigma. We have highlighted promising strategies to address stigma related issues. We have focused on the following key challenges: defining and reducing HIV/AIDS related stigma as well as assessing the impact of stigma on the effectiveness of HIV prevention and treatment programs. Based on the literature and personal observation we have concluded by offering a set of recommendations that may represent important next steps that how can we bring this marginalized group into national stream through communication.

Abstract: The stories are everywhere in the world. The characters are scattered all around us. We as narrators need to pick up such stories and connect them to real life situations. Fiction can be a technique to place stories in real contexts and derive meanings out of them. There are instances where the storytellers, the writers have symbolized messages through a storyline that is genuine and realistic. Stories are ample, in profusion. They have substance, carrying weight. Writers simply need the sincerity of purpose to get such narratives out in public domain. Keywords: Characters, Narrative, Real-life, Storytelling, Writers

: 10.9790/0837-20119095   logo

Abstract: This study investigates translation as a product dealing with the translation strategies of cultural words in Animal Farm, a novel written by George Orwell, and translated by Mahbud Djunaidi, an Indonesian writer, politician, and journalist, into Indonesian entitled Peternakan Binatang. The data are the linguistic units (forms) from Animal Farm as the source text and Peternakan Binatang as the target text which consists of words and phrases dealing with cultural words proposed by Newmark (1988). From the investigation, it is found out that the translator manipulates structural and semantic strategies. The structural strategy consists of addition, reduction, and transposition. Semantic strategy consisits of synonymy, cultural adaptation, naturalized borrowing, amplification, and deletion.

Keywords: translation, cultural words, source text, target text, and translation strategy.

Abstract: The institution of counselling is present in all human communities as people share their sorrows, mentor, empower and advise each other. The service of advising and grooming is all that counselling is. This paper seeks to explore the institution of counselling in Shona and Ndebele traditional societies before the advent of western formalised counselling institutions. The research sets to prove that counselling is not a new phenomenon in these societies, that is a remnant of colonialism but rather it is an old institution that has been window dressed with western strategies and formalisms.
