Gine Das Prenaa*, Putu Purnama Dewib, a,bUniversitas Pendidikan Nasional, Denpasar, Indonesia, Email: a*ginedasfrena@undiknas.ac.id   

The increasingly uncertain conditions make each organisation have to compete strongly to maintain the stability of its business. Every organisation must be able to maintain the various forms of intangible assets that they have. One form of intangible assets owned by a company is knowledge. The knowledge possessed by entrepreneurs is in the form of tacit knowledge and explicit knowledge. The entrepreneur's innovation idea is a key factor for a business to survive in a tight situation. One effective way to improve innovation capabilities in companies is through knowledge sharing activities. Through this habit, entrepreneurs can think more critically and then be more creative. This study involved 56 respondents of the small and medium woven clothes industry in Bali. The study was conducted using primary data sources with questionnaires. The data processing technique used in this study is the Rank Spearman correlation. The results showed that knowledge sharing behaviour had a positive and very strong relationship with individual innovation capability. The higher the knowledge sharing behaviour, the higher the individual innovation capability. With a correlation coefficient value of 0.721 which means that the two variables have a positive relationship. which means that both variables have a positive relationship because the correlation value is more than 0 to +1 and is in the range 0.71-0.90 where the range has a meaning that the relationship is very strong.

Review of Knowledge Management Audit

Wahyu Ari Andriyantoa, Mochamad Mochlasb, aUniversity of Pembangunan Nasional (UPN) “Veteran”, Jakarta, Indonesia, bUniversity of Muhammaddiyah Surabaya, Indonesia, Email: aandriyanto.wahyuari@gmail.combmmochlas@fe.um-surabaya.ac.id

In organisations, both profit and non-profit organisations, the knowledge and skills that constitute organisational excellence are only attached to one or several individuals. By using knowledge management, the organisation consciously identifies the knowledge it possesses and utilises it. Knowledge management audit is the activity of systematically examining the quality of knowledge management in an organisation. There are three knowledge management audit frameworks: knowledge quality audit, learning quality audit, and knowledge management process quality audit. Using an audit of the quality of knowledge, it is hoped that an overview will be obtained of the various groups of knowledge needed and their levels. While using a learning quality audit, the organisation will get a picture of the readiness of the organisation in providing learning facilities for its members and the readiness of the organisation in utilising the learning outcomes of its members. The benefit of auditing the quality of the knowledge management process is to get a picture of the effectiveness of the knowledge management processes within the organisation. Pages 95 to 111

Bahman Forsi’s The Vase and The Asylum and Harold Pinter’s Absurdism

Mohammad Exira, Alireza Anushiravanib*, aPhD Candidate in English Language and Literature, Kish International Campus, University of Tehran, Tehran, Iran, bProfessor of Comparative Literature, Foreign Languages Department, Shiraz University, Shiraz, Iran, Email: aavinex2015@gmail.comb*anushir@shirazu.ac.ir

The encounter between traditional Iranian society and Western modernity coinciding with the Constitutional Revolution, provided a background in which many political and social changes occurred. Modernity and its accompanying phenomena gradually changed people’s life-style among which was the new genre of drama. Bahman Forsi, familiar with the Absurd Theatre, has created novel plays. The purpose of the present study is to compare Forsi’s The Vase (1961) and The Asylum (1977) with Harold Pinter’s plays. The researchers use the framework of literary communication studies to explain this influence. The methodology is based on the theories of François Jost and Siegbert Salomon Prawer. Concerning influence studies and literary reception, these prominent comparatists have presented a scientific and concise method in their works. The findings of this study illustrate how Forsi, using the functions of language, characterisation, themes, and the elements of the Pinter’s Theatre of the Absurd, has created the above-mentioned plays. He has appropriated this literary genre and thus enriched Persian literature. Pages 133 to 145




Whitman the Mystical Poet, Whitman the Man

Hamid Pishgara, Abolfazl Ramazanib*, Ali Arianc, aPhD Candidate in English Language and Literature, Kish International Campus, University of Tehran, Tehran, Iran, b,cAssistant Professor, Department of English Language and Literature, Azarbaijan Shahid Madani University, Tabriz, Iran, Email: b*ramazani57@yahoo.co.uk

Although Walt Whitman (1990) is widely believed to intend to create a new American Bible, he, by proclaiming himself as the symbolic representative of common people, a poet-prophet, and matrix of a divine presence, was knowingly or unknowingly the American Bible himself. He endeavoured to be the leader of mankind towards a perfect form of life, truth, and eternity. As opposed to the traditional mystics who usually expressed themselves through abstract terms and who generally quested for the purgation of the self via the denial and mortification of the body and rejection of the physical world, Whitman exalted body pleasure and used concrete terms to illustrate his mystical ideas. In his Song of Myself, Whitman stated that everything and every individual is perfect per se and as “the unseen is proved by the seen,” Whitman (1990, p.45) felt no need to hide anything. He considered love as “a kelson of the creation,” (p.87) binding all together and creating unity in diversity. He placed “the body, the soul, God and the Self on an equal pedestal” (Sharma, 2016, p.69). While he was not a materialist thinker, he frequently sought the spiritual through the material and that helped him create a democratic mysticism available to everybody everywhere. In fact, his mysticism did not negate the material world. On the contrary, he invited everybody including the mystic to be an active member in a democratic society. He tried to awaken one's self and soul through a fusion of sensory and affective experience to see the divinity latent and inherent in the ordinary and in the commonplace. His mysticism did not make a secluded man out of one but an awakened self out of him. In this study, Whitman’s life and thought is shown to be a new version of the American Bible encouraging mankind to appreciate an internal divinity and transcended self within their existence.

To master learning of any language, one is required to be acquainted with the four language skills and the language areas of that target language. Grammar, as an important language area is seen as the backbone of the language by which one can speak and write properly. Many EFL learners in general and the Iraqi ones in particular commit different mistakes in using optional and obligatory grammatical structures such as relative pronouns, since and for, subordinating that, that in reported speech, and the prepositions. One hundred and twenty Iraqi EFL university students have been chosen randomly to represent the sample of the study then they were exposed to a test of two questions; the first question measured their ability at the level of recognition while the second was intended to measure their ability at the production level. The results and the findings of the obtained data reveal that Iraqi EFL university students faced difficulty in this language area due to the high percentage and number of the incorrect responses which outweigh that of the correct responses. The results and findings of the study also reveal that Iraqi EFL university students faced more difficulties at the production level than the recognition one. Pages 164 to 178

The Corona crisis has exposed significant imbalances in health and economic governance systems in many organisations around the world. There is an unwillingness in the systems to deal with such crises, especially in the leadership that is prepared to manage such conditions. In addition, there is a prevailing scepticism that conventional models of leadership are not effective in the Middle East. With the same logic, selecting leaders is a confusing task in the Middle East due to the haphazardness surrounding this task and the lack of clarity of appropriate selection criteria. This study within a few frameworks and theories scrutinises leadership models in order to classify certain leadership dimensions. The findings of this study suggest a new model to assist to clarify the issue by setting a group of 10 personality traits with 8 behavioural skills in addition to the social status. The triangular model stemmed from previous studies that addressed the leadership in general and the leadership model for the Middle East in particular. With the use of the methodologies of literature review and historical analysis, the descriptions of the leadership model will be demonstrated. Implications of this study selecting leadership easier in practice. Furthermore, this will enable recognition of leadership according to specific criteria which will help ensure  greater equality and empowerment at all levels of the system. Pages 201 to 217

Vietnam's hotel environment has fierce competition in the development trend of information technology and globalisation. In addition, Ho Chi Minh City is an attractive destination for Vietnamese and international tourists, leading to the dense development of luxury hotels in the downtown area. With the increasing trend of integration and innovation as well as the fierce competition of the tourism industry, hotels and businesses must be constantly developed and innovated in order to gain sustainable competitive advantage. Results in this paper show that four independent variables including pricing innovation, marketing-focused innovation, process innovation, and hotel types have a positive correlation with guest satisfaction and guest loyalty.

It is the responsibility of the public employee to complete a set of duties as per his assignment and commencement of work. Along with duties, he also deserves a set of rights. Among the other important and common topics between the duties and rights of public employees, the subject of the assignment carries great importance. Because of this importance, we investigate the legal controls for the assignment of a public employee in civil service systems and private systems such as judicial and military systems, diplomatic authority, and university faculty systems. We compare the Saudi and Egyptian legal system regarding employment. We find some similar features but most of legal structure is different in both countries. Pages 237 to 250




The Effect of Adopting Virtual Machines and Multiple Operating Systems in Improving the Quality of Higher Education in Developing Countries

Mahmoud Odeha, aUniversity of Zarqa, Email: aModeh@zu.edu.jo

Virtual computing is considered one of the main solutions that may improve the quality of information technology services. This technology may offer several benefits for students such as dealing with a complicated situation and technical troubleshooting as well as sharing resources. It delivers numerous computing services by installing several operating systems in one physical machine. However, despite the benefits of adopting virtual machines, there is still limited usage of this technology in higher education institutions in developing countries. This research will shed light on the adoption of virtual machines at higher education institutions in the Kingdom of Jordan. An interpretive paradigm using triangulation methods was applied to collect data from five universities in Jordan, thirteen semi-structured interviews were conducted along with two focus groups, 233 surveys, and direct observation. The data was analysed using Nvivo software, and Microsoft Excel was used to present the statistical results. A proposed framework has been developed and validated to suggest a roadmap for adopting virtual machines in Jordanian universities. Five factors which are cost, trialability, awareness, maintenance, and backup have been identified and incorporated in the framework.  Pages 251 to 266

Sa'ida Al-Sayyeda, Ghaleb Rabab'ahb, aAl-Ahliyya Amman University, bThe University of Jordan, Email: asaida.sayyed@yahoo.combghaleb.rababah@ju.edu.jo

This paper reports on the findings of a contrastive study that investigates email opening and farewell formulas used in two languages, namely, Arabic and English. The sample of the study comprised 100 Arabic and 100 English academic emails. The English data was drawn from the researchers’ mail inboxes while the Arabic data was drawn from the mail inbox pertaining to the Ministry of Education. The results showed that ‘greeting word only’ and ‘no opening formula’ were the highest in the Arabic emails. For farewell formulas, a ‘thanks only’ cliché registered the highest among the other formulas followed by ‘no closing formula’. As for English email opening formulas, three formulas were used in initiating an email, such as ‘greeting and name’, ‘greeting word only’ and ’greeting and title’. Concerning the farewell formulas, the results showed that email users tended to use ‘leave-taking, name and last name’ and ‘leave-taking only’. The results showed that there was a one-to-one correspondence between the farewells of both languages, unlike the greeting formulas, which do not have an exact one-to-one correspondence between the two languages.

Optimisation of social cohesion is an important determinant of the participatory empowerment of landless peasants but is often ignored. The intrinsic case study research method was conducted in rural Central Java Province, Indonesia. The results of the study indicate that there are variations in social cohesion that need to be optimised. The function of social cohesion element that influences participatory empowerment the most exists at the community level, followed by the individual and eventually the institutional level. The important elements that encourage social cohesion at the community level are motives, mentality, actions, behaviour, self-awareness, awareness, and morality. While at the individual level, the essential elements belong to enthusiasm, trust, quality and closeness of social relations, solidarity, and social values. Function optimisation is also important to do on the quality elements of social relations and collaboration networks at the institutional level. The program of social cohesion strengthening is very urgent and to be included in the participatory empowerment policy for landless peasants. Pages 311 to 324

The involvement of women in the political arena constitutes an accomplishment towards the Kingdom's democracy and societal development. This research intends to perceive the level of political empowerment of Saudi women in light of the Kingdom's Vision 2030. The research has accentuated the barriers and problems faced in the realisation of the political representation of women in the Kingdom and has projected the mechanisms for activating the political role of Saudi women. Also, it has framed a future strategy aimed at raising the level of political empowerment of Saudi women. A questionnaire was designed, consisting of 17 paragraphs, and distributed to collect the data. The sample size is 218 individuals from faculty members, university leaders and teachers. It was determined that there were statistically insignificant differences in the views of the sample individuals towards the level of political empowerment of Saudi women depending on gender, place of residence and experience.  The research results show that the level of political empowerment of Saudi women in light of the Kingdom's vision 2030 received a response of satisfactory from the respondents. The barriers and problems facing political representation and mechanisms for its activation are also found significant. However, it is concluded that the legislation for women empowerment is not working proficiently. This is ascribed to prevailing views of society towards females in all fields and lack of financial support. All members of the research samples indicated it can be resolved, that mechanisms for activating women's political empowerment are the key factors to implementing their political empowerment.

The development of tourism, business and education in Malang City, Indonesia, has an impact on the hotel business. Hotel owners are competing to offer modern, traditional, European, colonial, environmental care, sharia, and royal concepts. The concept of the hotel is represented in the hotel naming system. This study aims to analyse the form of language use and informational-symbolic functions in hotel names. The research sites are in five sub-districts, namely Klojen, Lowokwaru, Blimbing, Sukun and Kedungkandang in Malang City, Indonesia. Data were taken from monolingual, bilingual and multilingual forms with 79 data photography techniques. Data analysis was performed by studying Linguistic Landscapes and accounting the frequency, distribution, form of language, and analysing functions. The results show that monolingual English dominated the appearance. Forms of the language used as monolingual were Bahasa Indonesia and English; bilingual appears in six patterns, namely Bahasa Indonesia+English, Bahasa Indonesia+Javanese, English+Chinese, English+Japanese, English+Javanese, English+Arabic. The multilingual pattern that emerges is Javanese+Bahasa Indonesia+Arabic. The information function is built in to the concept of the hotel, owner and location, while symbolic functions represent symbols of traditional culture, modernism, religion, history, colonialism, capitalism and nationalism.

Accounting Problems Influencing the Diffusion of Nanotechnology Implementation in Developing Countries: The Case of Jordanian Companies

Mahmoud Nassara*, Abedalqader Rababahb, aAssociate Professor Al Ain University Abu Dhabi - United Arab Emirates, bAssistant Professor Faculty of Business, Sohar University,  Oman, Email: a*Mahmoud.nassar@aau.ac.aebabedalqader.rababah@gmail.com

This paper purposes to explore Jordanian companies’ accounting reasons for avoiding a transition toward more advanced industrial techniques; namely, to nanotechnology. This advanced technology could have many benefits to the firms, as it can decrease the cost of products, enhance products’ quality and produce products quickly. Both quantitative and qualitative data were gathered for this study. For the quantitative data, a questionnaire survey was developed in order to collect information about the respondents and to determine the accounting barriers and problems present in the implementation of nanotechnology. For the qualitative data, semi-structured interviews were conducted to determine the accounting barriers and problems impacting the implementation of nanotechnology. This was to confirm the quantitative results and to add additional information. The questionnaire data analysis was descriptive in nature, while the qualitative analysis was included within both the analysis and cross-analysis. Findings from both the questionnaire and the semi-structured interviews reveal that accounting factors such as lack of capital, lack of adequate funding, cost structure distortion and poor insurance all minimise the diffusion of nanotechnology in Jordanian Companies. The findings from the interviews also reveal that the accounting barriers to nanotechnology implementation are associated with low economic growth in Jordan and the Jordanian universities’ budget deficit. This study contributes to the further acquisition of knowledge regarding the diffusion of nanotechnology, providing a basis for further research in Jordan and other developing countries. To my knowledge, this is the first study conducted on this subject. Furthermore, this study’s contribution to this field of research will help facilitate the implementation of nanotechnology within Jordanian companies. However, accounting factors play a significant role in determining the success or failure of nanotechnology implementations. As a result, companies must take these factors into account before, during and after nanotechnology implementation, and they must adjust their expectations regarding the results they wish to attain and the speed at which they intend to produce better outcomes.

Exploring Revenue Collection Impediments in South African Rural Municipalities

Elvin Shavaa, aPost-Doctoral Research Fellow School of Public Management, Governance and Public Policy College of Business and Economics, University of Johannesburg, South Africa, Email: ellyshava@gmail.com

With the deadly Coronavirus pandemic adversely affecting the functioning of local governments globally, South Africa has not been spared from socio-economic ills. Ensuring pockets of excellence through revenue collection has become a nightmare in the South African local government. A key cash injection exercise, revenue collection enables rural municipalities to render quality basic services to needy communities. Revenue collection needs to be proportionate with the service delivered to stimulate the community culture of paying rates, which is essential for avoiding consumer debts that strain municipal finances. This article draws from a constructivist paradigm that utilises expansive literature and analyses various government documents and peer-reviewed articles on revenue collection and management in local government. Through the qualitative content analysis technique, the article reveals that rural municipalities in South Africa are encountering various revenue collection challenges that have a negative bearing on rural public service delivery. The results indicate that rural municipalities are ill-equipped to effectively collect revenue due to a skills deficit and lack of commitment, poor performance management, ineffective and inappropriate revenue enhancement strategies and lack of execution of plans. The article recommends that rural municipalities develop revenue enhancement strategies to implement policies focusing on indigenous credit control policies. Key employment generation plans are fundamental to enable citizens to obtain income for paying municipal rates. Pages 396 to 412

Ola Buraika, Mohammed Idrisb*, a,bDepartment of Accounting, Faculty of Business, Applied Science Private University, Amman, Jordan, Email: b*m.idris@asu.edu.jo

This research aims to investigate the impact of board of directors’ characteristics on monitoring earnings management (EM) intentions in Jordan. The characteristics of concern include director certificates in economic sciences, directors’ turnover, CEO duality, board member remuneration and board meetings. For this purpose, an empirical analysis of a dataset of all publicly traded services firms listed on the Amman Stock Exchange (ASE) for the period 2014-2017 is conducted by applying logistic regression analysis. This research documents that directors’ turnover motivates beneficial EM, whereas CEO duality motivates opportunistic EM in Jordanian services firms. However, the results do not show significant effect of director certificates in economic sciences, board member remuneration and board meetings on monitoring EM intentions. It is recommended that the election of directors be subject to rigorous requirements that ensure the appointment of efficient directors who can distinguish managerial intentions. This is expected to lead to the structuring of an effective internal control system based on proper ethical codes of conduct. Pages 429 to 443

Higher order thinking skills (HOTS) has been used as the standard for the Indonesian computer-based national examination (CbNE) in 2018. This study aims to review the recent research on HOTS-based mathematics education in Indonesia, and further observe its correlation to students’ readiness and the outcomes of the national examination for mathematics. A systematic and descriptive review of recent published studies in regards to HOTS-based mathematics education in Indonesia has been undertaken in this study. The findings show that HOTS-based study plays an important role in improving students’ thinking skills as well as supporting their success. However, various studies on the application of HOTS in mathematics education in Indonesia still require improvements, especially in shifting from lower order thinking skills to HOTS, which can be seen from the lower national score in the national exam for mathematics in 2018 compared to previous years. Research has shown there are several learning approaches to improve the mathematic HOTS of the students, such as Realistic Mathematics Education (RME), Relating, Experiencing, Applying, Cooperating, Transferring (REACT), Open-Ended Problems, Problem-Based Learning and Inquiry learning.

This paper aims to provide an understanding of costs allocation practices and problems in the UAE hotels Industry. It introduces Results Based Costing (RBC) as an alternative cost allocation method to reduce costs allocation problems and potentially, introduce positive organizational change. This paper presents a qualitative research study and an explanatory case the Sharjah Palace Hotel (SPH) in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Data has been drawn from multiple sources including interviews, observations, documents and archival records, and triangulated to present a comprehensive picture of cost allocation practice in the organization. The study also used a survey of cost allocation methods to evaluate the introduction of results based costing. The study concludes that the problems of costs allocation arise in a reasonable way in many practical situations where people decide to work together to save costs. Cost allocation practices take into account the strategic aspects of cost allocation situations. The findings showed that while hotels in the UAE operate in a very competitive environment, there was little evidence of accurate allocation indirect costs, instead combined costs are allocated to operating revenue.  Accounting research into the cost accounting system and its processes is much needed. RBC system as a center of accounting and management merits greater attention by researchers. Practitioners in this way can better design and implement costing systems that build on past knowledge and learning. This study thus presents itself as the first study about RBC currently available in the hotels and hospitality industry. It also represents one of the very few referred studies of the Results Based Accounting in the accounting research and hospitality literature globally. Pages 512 to 545

Creativity is perceived as an intellectual power of human beings that enriches people in multiple manifestations aspects of life. There are plenty of creative ways to develop creativity, but few give good results. This paper presents a study on the role of Servant Leadership Behaviour and Transformational Leadership behaviour to develop creativity. Furthermore, the effect of Ambidexterity as the mediator between leadership behaviour and creativity is investigated and acts as the novelty of the study.  The research is conducted in a Business School since business studies provide more opportunities to accomplish creative tasks. The sample size was 102 consisting of students from the final year of their study. Data collection is given directly to the students and analysed by smart PLS (Partial Least Square) and presented in tables and figures. The reliability and validity assessments are carried. The result shows that both Servant Leadership and Transformational behaviour will not provide a positive effect on Creativity unless Ambidexterity mediates them. The role of Ambidexterity as a moderator is significant. The two leaderships behaviour is proper antecedent to Ambidexterity. Practising exploration and exploitation characteristics of Ambidexterity fosters the leaders' behaviour to increase the student's creativity. Pages 546 to 568

Indonesia’s Ambivalent Language Policy on English: Cause and Effect

Himpun Panggabeana, Sahlan Tampubolonb, Milisi Sembiringc, a,cFaculty of Letters, Universitas Methodist Indonesia, Medan, Indonesia, bUniversitas HKBP Nommensen, Email: ahimpang_25@yahoo.combsahlantampubolon@ymail.comcmilisi_sembiring@yahoo.com

Language policy on English in Indonesia is ambivalent; it is stipulated in-laws on education that it is a compulsory subject in all levels of education but belittled in-laws on other domains. The ambivalence is due to the fear of hegemonic implication of the extensive use of English resulting in the dichotomy between the functions of English as a global language, Indonesian language, Bahasa Indonesia (BI), a unifying language, and vernaculars as preservers of local cultures building up national culture. Due to it, English teaching instruction objective is vague, resulting in poor English proficiency of Indonesian citizens despite that the language is learned and thought extensively for years.  To resolve the problems, Indonesia needs to promote multilingual policy, amend laws that are not in line with the enforcement of English,  reinstate English learning and teaching in Primary Schools, and develop a variety of English indigenous to it.

Deliberative Argumentative Linguistics in the Zainab Informational Discourse

Hazem Tarish Hatema, aImam Kadhum University College for Islamic Sciences

It is recognised that the media represents an authority. The management of this authority needs wits characterised by intelligence and sophistication, because the owners of this authority believe in the power generated by it. and its effectiveness in making changes in the scales of any equation including political, economic, cultural or military. Therefore, the media accompanies any movement that is intended to succeed, especially if the movement is a military. To gain interests and privileges, the media presents its capabilities, and only the supremacy of opponents prevails. This is the media philosophy. The military movement of Imam Hussain, "peace be upon him", was accompanied by a media movement embodied by the Hawra Zainab "peace be upon her". Here, the importance of this research lies in proving the existence of this media movement. In addition to this media movement, this research will provide a reading in the light of proving Islamic identity, and the approach of this movement to the philosophy of media. This will be achieved by explaining its intellectual foundations, and its Qur'anic premises in confronting the intellectual arrogance of counter-media. It is here that it becomes clear about the reason for choosing the search. Today the methods of confrontation have changed and diversified, so the media has become the lethal weapon with which cities are opened and colonised. The research will deal with the most important media themes that formed a semiotic icon in the generation of argumentative deliberative linguistics. This occurs by achieving direct and indirect communication, adopting the ideas presented, defending them in a way that makes the structure of the argumentative dialogue based on semantic loads of the subject of the media news. This is formed in his literature confronting the counter media, in addition to forming an Islamic identity in the language of the Zainab media. Pages 721 to 737

This paper discusses the challenges on developing a new program that could be recognised between Malaysian and European countries. It is crucial as it involves readiness for future production toward the Industry 4.0 policies and how it may create innovation in education systems. The essential goal of Industry 4.0 is to make manufacturing and related industries, such as design, faster, more efficient, and more customer-centric. At the same time, Industry 4.0 aims to go beyond automation and optimisation, and detect new business opportunities and models. At this point, frontier technologies identified by select organisations to re-present the characteristic of Industry 4.0. However, there is no universally agreed definition of frontier technology. The following technologies have been most commonly identified as frontier: 3D printing, the Internet of Things, AI, and robotics. The reviews of COPPA between European-Malaysian with the reason to develop a master’s degree for engineers of furniture smart factories that will modernise Higher Education degrees. This will be achieved by focusing on the ICTs skill needed to increase the competitiveness of the wood and furniture industry of Malaysia. Comparative studies of the existing frame of references have been selected as the methodology. The results indicate that a framework of qualifications must be fit for purpose. As we can see, what exactly “fit of purpose” entails, depends to some extent on the setting. To put it simply, whether or not a framework is “fit for purpose” depends on its purpose.

The Warrior of Corruption and Colonialism: The Thomas Sankara Model 1949-1987

Aftikar Mhussan Salha, aUniversity of Qadissiyah/College of Education, Email: aaftikar.salh@qu.edu.iq

There were many African leaders who fought against colonialism in all its forms and led their countries towards freedom from the corruption and European imperialism which invaded the African continent and drained its wealth for a long period of time. Sankara strived to make his country, Brukina Faso, the cradle of freedom for Africa as a whole. Sankara realised the genealogy for great revolutionaries including Che Guevara, Gandhi, Kwame Nkrumah, Julius Nyerere, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King Jr., and many others whose ideas continue to inspire social and political change around the world. Sankara spoke to millions of people who yearn for social justice, equality, sustainable development, an end to imperialism, and the elimination of global capitalist exploitation. His speeches are urgent and cover a wide range of topics including race, gender equality, assistance and development, social justice, imperialism, Africanism, religion, African identity and culture, women's emancipation, and foreign policy.

A Study of the Syntactic Phonological Interface in English Sentence Form

Saddam Salim Hmooda, Ban Hassan Jasimb, a,bUniversity of Thiqar/ College of Education for Humanities / Department of English, Email: asaddamsalim844@yahoo.combhassanban83@gmail.com

This study endeavours to shed light on the interface between syntax and phonology, i.e., two of the principal levels of linguistics. This investigation revolves around the following questions: (1) Is it correct to argue that syntax and phonology are interrelated? (2) Does syntax override phonology in English sentence construction or vice versa? It is assumed that syntax is more powerful than phonology and emphatic transformation mainly affects sentence stress. This work is limited to the transformation of simple and complex sentences in relation to emphatic and contrastive stress. The main results of this study have evidently shown that: (1) Simple and complex sentence transformational rules basically illustrate the connection between syntax and phonology. (2) The phonological stress rules are conditioned by transformational rules. (3) The phonological stress rules require information concerning the syntactic category of a word (4) The analysis  has shown that there is evidence that syntax dominates phonology in English sentence construction.

This article was part of a research project titled “Identity and Aesthetics of Tai-Yuan Arts to Design of cultural souvenir products” as a component of a graduate thesis majoring Culture, Fine Arts, and Design, Khon Kaen University. The research aimed to study the mural arts which appear in Tai-Yuan as their historical and cultural diffusion can be traced to some appearances in temples along sided the Pa Sak river in Saraburi Province. The research was qualitative, and the data was collected by field study, survey, observation, and interviews with key-informant persons. The data was then analysed based on the theoretical framework of History and Cultural Diffusion theory of German anthropologist, Franz Boas.. The study results indicate that “culture” was composed by humans as a livelihood through foods, living, appearance, working, and performance to express the meaning of society, which passed from generation to generation. The livelihood was based on the past livelihood principle from the past to the present in Ta-Yuan ethnic in Saraburi Province which integrated livelihood with other ethnic groups in the same areas. The integration brought from cultural and livelihood of Lanna, Chinese, Mon (Minority), and Westerners to adapt with the livelihood harmoniously and correspond with social contexts in the present trend accord to cultural diffusion theory of Franz Boas. The theory of cultural diffusion emphasised that the study of cultural patterns and styles are more important than “the cultural which spread to other ones, must have been adapted to the new culture from the original”(reference)  . Therefore, cultural diversity has appeared in the livelihood, language, food, appearance, honour tattoos, and traditions. This includes the Salakphart tradition, Traditional New Year celebration, Khan Khao tradition, and Floating Lanterns tradition, etc. which resulted in the cultural diffusion maintained in Tai-Yaun in Saraburi province. This phenomena led to correspondence in society, living together, helping each other in the community, and passing the knowledge to post-generations which appears in the mural art as the story memorandum through the painting to illustrate the creator’s thinking and reflects the cultural value of the nation in both aesthetic value of humankind and educational advantages.

This is the first research study about oléen that is known as a condition of children characterised by growth and developmental problems in Madura. It aims to explore the factors associated with oléen in the Madura tribe. Participants included shamans, health professionals,  personal figures, and the mothers of oléen.  The phenomenology approach was used to explore participants’  thinking process. Data collection consisted of in-depth interviews, FGD and observation  by capturing videos, pictures and audios, as well as demographic and health profiles. Data was  then triangulated. Qualitative data was analysed  using Nvivo12 pro. The results show that most oléen received treatment from shamans due to the Madurese belief that oléen is not a medical  but cultural-spiritual issue. Future focus should be on improving knowledge for mothers on child growth and development as well as rearing practice. In addition, there needs to be improvement of health staff skills to provide child growth-development services for those affected by oléen. Pages 906 to 917

This paper aims to develop a mathematically reduced-form model to analyse  and interpret  business cycle fluctuations and their consequences on economic stability. The proposed model utilises  national income identity and a set of six behavioural equations including consumption, investment, taxes, money demand, exports and imports. Using the tools of matrix algebra, a (7×7) matrix is constructed from the constant term and  co-efficients of  six independent variables. The model's stability relative to the changes in the price level, exchange rate, international trade, fiscal and monetary policies, is viewed from eigenvalues, eigenvectors, and eigenspace generated from the model matrix. Coupled with its described protocol, the proposed reduced-form model has proved competency in connoting different theories of the business cycle, addressing growth issues, and shaping appropriate economic policies.

This study aims to examine the entrepreneurial orientation in determining the value of management quality and MSME competitiveness as well as testing the quality of management in determining the value of MSME competitiveness. This study involves a kind of explanative/associative research accompanied by hypothesis testing. The study was conducted at the MSME centres of religious tourism areas, with a population of 435 business operators, with a sample size of 63 MSMEs with a stratified random sampling method for data collection. The results of the path analysis show that entrepreneurial orientation directly and significantly influences the quality of management and competitiveness of MSMEs, as well as that the quality of management directly and significantly affects the competitiveness of MSMEs. The results of this study indicate that under an entrepreneurial orientation that is increasingly responsive and structured, the quality of management and competitiveness also gets better, so with the quality of good management, the competitiveness of MSMEs also gets better. While the quality of management is an important key because its presence determines the competitiveness of religious tourism MSME areas, stakeholders must participate in developing and encouraging entrepreneurial orientation to be more responsive to change, so that the quality of MSME business management becomes better. A more responsive entrepreneurial orientation and good management quality will certainly encourage competitiveness to be stronger, so that the existence of MSMEs can leverage the welfare of the community of religious tourism areas in East Java.

Thouraya Snoussia*, Abdullah Kasemb, aAssociate Professor, Mass Communication’ Department, College of Communication, University Of Sharjah, UAE, bInstructor, Mass Communication’ Department, College of communication, University Of Sharjah, UAE, Email: a*tsnoussi@sharjah.ac.ae

This study explores integrated online marketing communications strategies as innovative approaches leveraging Social Media SM capabilities. The focus was on Instagram usage for branding by educational institutions. The problem was formulated as follows: How do universities in the UAE use Instagram to manage their brand image and what impact does that have on their followers?  Analysis of sample content with a total of 9,840 posts confirmed that studied universities placed more emphasis on product/brand-related publications. The classification of tracked reactions revealed five main categories: love, interrogation, criticism, belonging, and sympathy. Positive comments admire cultural events, while criticism revolves around improving places. The data revealed that SM can improve the overall performance of educational institutions and ensure their visibility. The authors believe that future studies on the role of social media as a strategic tool for communicating in other contexts should be made to measure its evolving weight, especially during the Covid-19 pandemic.

This study examined the outsourcing and in-sourcing of human resources and the effect on performance manufacturing firms in Nigeria as empirical works are rare for strategic decision making. We employed survey research to gather data from 116 respondents working in manufacturing firms listed in the Nigerian stock exchange. Results from the ordinary least square regression reveals that outsourced human resource (HR) activity have significant positives, while in-sourced HR activity has a negative relationship with performance of manufacturing firms in Nigeria. Also, we confirmed that the improved performance of manufacturing firms will be related to a higher difference between HR outsourcing and in-sourcing. Specifically, it is found that training and development, payroll, and recruitment were the specific outsourcing activities that significantly and positively predict performance of manufacturing firms, while HR recruitment was the only significant in-sourcing activity affecting performance of manufacturing firms negatively. Generally, it is concluded that outsourced is better than in-sourced HR practices for manufacturing firms in Nigeria. Therefore, firms seeking improvement in performance can outsourced its payroll, training and development and recruitment activities. Pages 1038 to 1056

April Z. Luzona, aCamarines Sur Polytechnic Colleges, Camarines Sur, Philippines, Email: aaprilzluzon@cspc.edu.ph

Good governance is observed when the lawmakers, local legislative bodies, and the smallest unit of the society, are not only knowledgeable of the law but, most importantly, know how to participate in the local legislative processes in addressing the needs of the community they serve.  This study aimed to determine the awareness level and extent of adoption on concepts of parliamentary procedures of community officials in the Fifth District of Camarines Sur, Philippines, and whether a relationship exists between the two. By using descriptive and correlational research designs among 360 respondents in the 40 communities, findings of the study revealed that local legislators have a high awareness level on the fundamental principles of parliamentary procedures, quorum, and sessions, which resulted in a high adoption rate. However, low awareness levels on concepts of the order of business, votes, and motions led to a low adoption rate.  Capacitating the local legislators through the conduct of training, extension programs, and a simplified guidebook will improve community legislative practices that will redound to the benefit of the citizens.

DOI: 10.53333/IJICC2013/14566

Natural calamities cause massive affliction among affected communities. As a result, most survivors have to rely on their coping mechanisms and deal with their losses and consequent emotional grief. Taking November 8, 2013, super typhoon Haiyan, which was known as “Yolanda” locally, as an example, this study aims to report findings from within a phenomenological study designed to investigate the lived experiences of Yolanda survivors in Tacloban City. This study is based on the philosophy of Martin Heidegger, which recognises the role of self in interpretation and utilises hermeneutic phenomenology, which is concerned with understanding texts. In-depth interviews with survivors were conducted, and their responses were audio-recorded and transcribed. Five emergent themes were identified: (1) unperturbed and used, (2) emotion-focused outcomes, (3) divine faith, (4) ways of coping, and (5) resilience. In the process, the participants did not only survive but established a new sense of purpose and their renewed awareness in life was awakened. Future studies may investigate different types of coping assistance at various points in the recovery process, and additional research is needed to elucidate how different types of religious involvement may intercede the effects of a natural disaster.

Factors that Contribute to the Poor Writing Skills in Filipino and English of the Elementary Pupils

Analyn D. Saavedraa, Cheryl P. Barredob, a,bWestern Mindanao State University, Zamboanga City, Philippines, Email: aanalyn.saavedra@yahoo.com, bcherylbarredo@yahoo.com

This study primarily aims to know the factors that contribute to the poor writing skills in English and Filipino of the Six Grader elementary pupils in one of the Divisions in the Zamboanga Peninsula.  Using purposive sampling, 43 language teachers teaching English and Filipino who are teaching the subjects from five years and above were selected as respondents. They too are teaching in different public elementaries in the same Division. A standardised survey questionnaire which had undergone validation, reliability, and pilot testing served as the instrument of the study. Using the mean score and standard deviation through the SPSS, the researchers interpreted the data using the 5-point Likert scale, which was rated by the language teachers. The data revealed that there are five factors that language teachers considered to have influenced the poor English and Filipino writing skills of the elementary pupils. Based on their experiences and observations while teaching writing to the pupils, the following was recorded: 1) lack of vocabulary in the target language; 2) difficulty in conveying and organising ideas; 3) pupils’ perception that writing is a hard task; 4) lack of motivation and interest in writing; and 5) the difficulty in spelling, grammar and sentence construction are the reasons why many elementary pupils have poor writing skills in English and Filipino. These factors can be attributed to the first languages of the pupils (Chabacano, Bahasa Sug, and Cebuano), where English and Filipino are considered as L2 only. Despite the effort of teachers, they acknowledged that elementary pupils’ writing skills still did not meet the standard in writing. That is why they are optimistic that following the K to 12 curricula will pave the way for improving the writing skills of the pupils, which has long been deteriorating. It is also an interesting point that curriculum planners, especially the language specialist, should look to help our pupils improve their writing skills in L2 eventually. Pages 1090 to 1106

Abdallah Abdallaha, Marsaa Haaj Ahmadb, a,bThe German Jordanian University. Graduate School of Business Administration, Email: aabdallah.abdallah@gju.edu.jo

Purpose: The objective of this paper is to assess the level of employee engagement and its effect on the financial performance of Jordanian insurance companies. Employee engagement is described as the level of commitment and involvement of employees towards their organisation and its values. Design/Methodology/Approach: A questionnaire was distributed to a sample of 200 employees working in Jordanian insurance companies. 180 responses were collected and only 167 were considered valid for analysis. Findings: Employee engagement significantly financial performance. More specifically, vigourvigour, dedication, and absorption have positive and significant effects on improving return on investment (ROE) and return on assets (ROA). Dedication and absorption have a positive impact on profitability and mitigating financial losses. However, the effect of vigourvigour on operating profit margin and loss ratio is insignificant. Practical Implications: This research provides practical recommendations for managers and policy makers to enhance performance by building engagement. Recommendations also focus on assessing employee engagement in insurance companies due to their important effect on organisational success, long-term sustainability, efficiency and productivity.  Originality/value: This is one of the first studies that links employee engagement with non-financial performance in the insurance sector; a service sector that suffers from high employee turnover and moderate engagement levels.

This paper deals with the specific topic of the Europeans and the UAE region in the 16th and 17th centuries, where none of areas of the Gulf regions, including the coast region of the U.A.E, were free from European influence and  domination. This paper explains the historical rooting for the cities of the coast of the UAE, their ports and the relationship of the Europeans with the region starting from the Portuguese and passing through England and Netherlands, who were driven by the need to achieve their interests in one way or another. In fact, the Arab population was more determined to defend their water and land with which they were associated, since it was their land and the resources of their livelihood. This study sheds  light on land features that did not arise by chance, with its emirates; now known as Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah, Ras Al Khaimah, Fujairah, Ajman and Umm Al Quwain that have had some deep roots in the past, evidenced by the presence of monuments and archaeological collections, which recorded the presence of these emirates at that time. Such deep-rooted history was clear during the subsequent historical times, and even during recent ages, though the name of the UAE came under other names. The areas involved in this research are what is known nowadays the Sahil Emirates (UAE nowadays), and the ports and cities built there, such as the ports of Khorefkan Dibba and Julphar, which enjoyed a reputation for business in the early decades of the 16th Century.  Pages 1163 to 1175

Second language learners encounter some challenges and difficulties in learning and using English phrasal verbs. This study examines whether the subjects’ English proficiency levels influence their use of phrasal verbs. For this purpose, 480 male and female students enrolled in the departments of English Language and Translation at three Jordanian private universities were asked to translate 15 Arabic sentences into English. Using an English Proficiency Test, the subjects were categorised into three levels; advanced, upper-intermediate, and intermediate. The findings show the relatively high use of phrasal verbs when translating Arabic verbs into English among the advanced group (42%), followed by the upper intermediate (27.4%) and intermediate groups (21.9 %). The study concludes with the suggestion that more attention should be paid to idiomatic language use by second language learners to render their translations idiomatic and correct.

The prime objective of the current research is to investigate the impact of corporate governance on the corporate CCHs in the manufacturing sector. The study has employed the panel data methodology to achieve the objectives of the current study. The data of 60 manufacturing firms was collected from the audited accounts published on their official websites. The findings of the study are in line with the proposed hypothesis of the study. The results of econometric models show that except in the case of dividends, all the variables are in significant relationship with the corporate cash holdings (CCHs). Cash flow appears a significantly and positively related variable to corporate CCHs. The relationship between managerial ownership is inverted N shape i.e managerial ownership (MAN) and  MAN^3 are negatively but significantly related with corporate CCHs however MAN^2 is positively related to corporate CCHs. This confirms the nonlinear relationship between managerial ownership and corporate CCHs. As controller dummy has a positive but family controller and institutional controller has a negative relation with corporate CCHs,  it indicates that the identity of controlling shareholders has a negative impact on CCH. The study has also presented the analysis of managerial ownership in the manufacturing sector of Indonesia. The impact of awareness of the CG on corporate CCHs will be helped by the results of this empirical investigation. Moreover, the findings provide support to investors for the mitigation of agency problems. Pages 1215 to 1231

The digital economy has gained enormous momentum. Business models driven by data or at least supported by the automated algorithmic profiling of data have become the rule and not the exception. In its application, profiling may cause some particular risks such as: de-individualisation & stereotyping, Information asymmetries, discrimination, innacuracy & abuse. This paper examine the differences and similarities between data privacy protection regulation in the EU and Indonesia.  As can be known through this paper, EU legislative initiatives are more wide-ranging and more comprehensive than Indonesia counterparts. Until today, Indonesia recently has no specific provision in terms of right of privacy to personal data regarding to the automated algorithmic profiling. The main challenges found in this paper are the challenges to design arrangements for protecting personal data related to automated algorithmic profiling in countries that have multicultural social conditions, as well as the challenges to building transparent automated algorithmic profiling systems.

Financial Technology (FinTech) industry in Indonesia has seen a rapid growth. In 2019, the value of Indonesia’s digital economy reached USD 40 billion. As of early 2020, Indonesia Financial Services Authority (OJK) has 161 fintech companies registered and licensed to operate under its supervision. Data from Bank of Indonesia (BI) recorded 51 payment companies in Indonesia, the majority of which offer peer-to-peer lending, digital payment, and crowdfunding services. Despite this growth, a clear legal framework is still absent in the industry. As of today, it is regulated with the Regulation of the Financial Services Authority (POJK) but has not been regulated in the Indonesian Law. As secondary legislation, POJK has a weaker legal power. This results in several significant flaws in the industry’s legal certainty and consumer protection. This article aims at elaborating various legal issues surrounding Indonesia’s fintech industry and at constructing a legal framework that can propel the growth of the digital economy and strengthen consumer protection in Indonesia.

Awareness of social responsibility by a business is one of the keys to the successful and harmonious development of society, to prevent its stratification and internal conflicts. The concept of Corporate Social Responsibility and international standards that underlie its institutionalisation is universal. Cross-cultural studies show that differences in business practices and goal-setting are culturally determined. It is reasonable to expect that differences in value orientations will also manifest in building relations between business and society, including in new aspects related to the formation of modern information and digitalisation society. The article examines the impact of digital technology on changing the social contract and the emergence of new business models based on ecosystems. We hypothesise that for the development of СSR programs, the differences in value orientations will be manifested, among other things, in building relations between business and society, including in new aspects related to the formation of a modern information society. The authors characterise the contribution of stakeholders to the business ecosystem's economy, determine the main directions of change in corporate social responsibility policy, and characterise the main strategies for innovative development of business ecosystems.
