Abstract: Losing an election is not a suitable 'song' that politicians aspire to sing and conceding defeat in public is what no politician ever prays to do. Nonetheless, there must be a winner and there must be a loser especially in a competition as politics. This work investigated the underlying meanings of the concession speeches of President Goodluck Jonathan, Governor Kayode Fayemi and Governor Mitt Romney. The study applied Fairclough and Wodak's Critical Discourse Analysis to analyse the concession speeches of the said politicians. The study is carried out using a qualitative descriptive methodology to analyse the pragmatic, grammatical elements and cohesive devices that are used to decode the ideologies in the speeches............

Abstract: Commercial Dairy farming in Assam had begun during British period. After establishing a bond with Nepal through signing the Treaty of Segowli in 1816, the British Government encouraged the migration of Gorkhas from Nepal with their families. After the Yandaboo treaty in 1826 the Gorkha army men along with the British reached Burma and the kinsman of the Gorkha soldiers accompanied them were offered to rear buffaloes there as sundry jobs. The Syiems (chiefs) of United Khasi Jayantia Hill, who levy a grazing tax on immigrants- a tax which they cannot levy on their own subjects, had encouraged Gorkha graziers to immigrate in this part of NER. During War II numbers of Gorkha Graziers moved to NER from Burma creating milk pockets in different parts of Assam. Depending on this milk pockets numbers of Dairy Cooperatives came up..............

Abstract: Recent disasters are becoming increasingly diversified, larger and increasingly uncertain. However, disaster management still lacks various research and lessons, and it exposes various problems in management. Disruption of the command system, a number of non-practical response manuals, failure to function effectively at the local government headquarters, a lack of unified system, failure of national emergency support function, disruption of central control tower. The majority of responding problems are due to the manual method of approaching each type of disaster and the distributed management system.In this study, we aim to review the disaster safety management plan from the viewpoint of total value chain aiming at total optimization. To this end, the system should be directed to a systematic model that is characterized by a systematic approach to disaster management and safety management.

This difficulty is then led to a new management concept for hospital by giving autonomy to hospital. The given autonomy then called as Badan Layanan Umum Daerah (BLUD) in which hospitals have the right and authority to manage its resources. In managing these resources, it is required a good knowledge and understanding of the relevant hospital autonomy. This survey aims to determine the extent of stakeholder understanding of the hospital autonomy and hospital autonomy-related training needs. The study design was a survey conducted by using the tool "Balanced Score Card Diagnosis" that was used to measure the respondents' knowledge.............

Abstract: The education system in Fiji by far constitutes the punitive approaches of teaching using chalk and blackboard and is usually teacher-centered. The Ministry of Education is continuously pressing on the need to incorporate innovation in the teaching pedagogies and shifting from teacher-centered to student-centered. Education for the future will have to change. Some secondary schools have switched to teaching using whiteboards, interactive boards and even the social media and internet. This is a promising move as it enhances student interaction and engagement. Presently, the secondary students are digital natives primarily engaged with the many gadgets they own.............

Title : Provide your feedback with a priority in mind: Weighing errors before drawing the red line?
Country : Tunisia
Authors : Emna Maazoun ZAYANI
: 10.9790/0837-2203015971      logo

Abstract: In order to judge the gravity of written errors, teachers generally resort to different sets of criteria. In addition, the majority of error gravity research studies focus on the judgment of native versus non-native speakers. However, little concern has been paid to the role of criteria selection in shaping gravity judgment in the Tunisian context. Therefore, this research attempted to investigate the impact of criteria selection in shaping teachers' judgment of the gravity of written errors. Fifty essays of third year management students were analysed. Fifteen Tunisian teachers participated in the evaluation process.............

L'employeur ne peut par exemple procéder un licenciement pour un motif tiré de la vie familiale que si le comportement, compte tenu de la nature de ses fonctions et de la finalité propre de l'entreprise

Abstract: Communication Apprehension is the feeling of anxiety concerning speaking with others. Communication Apprehension (CA) prevents individuals' ability to communicate effectively in communication contexts. Employers of labour prefer graduates who can effectively communicate in the workplace without apprehension. CA has been established as a barrier to communication and therefore has implication for employability. This study assessed the communication apprehension of mass communication final year undergraduates in Nigeria. A total of 405 respondents were surveyed from four tertiary institutions, namely: Lagos State University (LASU), University of Lagos.............

Abstract: There is something mildly hypnotic about the illusion of movement that holds the attention whenever it comes in close contact to the optic nerves...just like the case of Cinema or motion picture house as it catches attentionat inception. The art of motion pictures had frequently undergone changes that seemed fundamental, such as those resulting from introduction of sound, which is of great difference based on the style adopted from country to country.The paper examines the historical perspective of Cinema Culture from the point of view of the Economic nerve centre of Nigeria, Lagos State.The paper dwells on the trends in the habit of cinema goers in the early 19th century when it all began and how it then evolved over the years in the economic hub of Nigeria as a form of relaxation and entertainment as well as information tools............
