Title : Role of Education in Achieving Millennium Development Goals
Country : India
Authors : Dr. Mamta Sharma || Dr. Keshav Dev
: 10.9790/0837-2211011823     logo

Abstract: Education is a key factor in achieving Millennium Development Goals. Education can help lift people out of poverty. Education equips people with the knowledge and skills they need to increase income and expand employment opportunities. Equal schooling for both boys and girls is the foundation for development. No other policy intervention is likely to have a more positive multiplier effect on progress across all the MDGs than the education of women and girls. Education saves young lives. Evidence shows a strong correlation between educating women and girls and higher maternal and child life expectancy as well as improvements in child and family health and nutrition. Girls and women who are educated are far more likely to immunize their children.............

Title : Section 57 of ICT Act: A threat to the freedom of expression through the suit of defamation
Country : Bangladesh
Authors : Munmun Saha
: 10.9790/0837-2211012427     logo

Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to draw how the cyber law is being abused by the political leader, affluent people of our country. The country of Bangladesh believes in the equal contribution of every people. To make our country great, our Constitution has introduced the idea of freedom of expression. The action which is taken by any public figure can be questioned if anyone thinks that it is against the interest of people and obviously through the application of some restrictions .So comment or criticism on public matter cannot be stopped by filing suit on the base of defamation. If we do not take necessary steps to stop the misuse of defamation under section 57 of ICT Act then the idea of freedom of expression will be a joke.

Abstract: Meiteis are the major ethnic group in Manipur, a North East Indian state. Surnames came into existence before king Loiyumpa (1074-1122 AD). Surname is part of a personal name that is passed from either or both parents to their offspring. Surnames in Meitei society are derived from father‟s name. Meiteis have 7 clans and each clan has several surnames. In the 14th century A.D during the reign of King Kiyamba, Brahmins from the mainland of India started to come and settled in Manipur. They have been given different surnames except the seven clans. Again, during the reign of King Khagemba, in the 16th century, Muslims from Bengal started to settle at Manipur, known as Pangal [paŋəl]. These people are now known by the name Meitei pangal. They also have been given with different surnames except the seven clans. This paper is an attempt to provide some insights of surnames and naming patterns in Meitei society and their importance in the society

: 10.9790/0837-2211017682     logo

Abstract: Related to corruption crime In Indonesia, it is regulated according to Article 2 and 3 of Law no. 31 Year 1999 Jo. UU no. 20 of 2001, which according to the provision determines the threat of death penalty for the corruptors who conduct the corruption "in certain cases" that is if the state is in an economic crisis, it means not all acts of corruption are threatened with the death penalty, even though the death penalty in positive law is allowed. Similarly, according to the provisions of Islamic criminal law, where the act of corruption is identical with Sariqah (stealing) so that according to Alqur'an and hadith, the act can be put to death because Sariqah has made the destruction of the earth. So whether by positive law or Islamic criminal law, the death penalty can apply to corruptors, but in reality the death penalty is never decided by the Judge in court.

Title : Learning beyond Classroom
Country : India
Authors : Dr. K. Lalitha Bai
: 10.9790/0837-2211018385     logo

Abstract: The belief that many teachers strongly possess is that learning depends primarily on the teacher. The revolutionary changes that took place in the education system emphasize the need of a learner- centered approach. The diverse and marginally prepared student population entering into higher education is one reason for shifting to this approach. The demand of rapidly changing information is another reason. In this approach the role of teacher and student just reverses. From the predominant role as an active participant the teacher‟s role shifts to a facilitator in making the student as active participant. The teacher frames a mind map and develops a deeper and more understanding of what goes on in the mind of the learner. Teaching process should proceed in such a manner where a learner becomes a communicator and creator himself becomes one of them. Learner should be given the freedom to create his own views and opinions in the process of language learning. The process of learning and teaching should go side by side.
