Based on interviews of 127 university students, whose responses were analyzed by qualitative (content analysis) and quantitative (discriminant analysis) methods, the research found the discriminating functions of boredom to run along axes of connection/loneliness and coping/depression, yielding four distinct types of boredom: external boredom, situational boredom, deep boredom and social boredom. The findings support the theory that boredom is multivalent and encompasses more than one distinct experience. They point to the paradoxical and vague nature of the experience, particularly salient in social boredom, which includes high levels of loneliness as an emotional element, even though it always appears in situations in which the individual is with others.</p> 2018-04-25T07:45:52+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Administration allemande et gestion des ressources naturelles au Kamerun 1884-1916 2018-05-02T10:19:03+00:00 Paul Ahidjo <p>La recherche des matières premières d’outre mer avait constitué l’une des motivations&nbsp; de la conquête impériale des occidentaux. Dans la ruée des puissances européennes sur l’Afrique, l’Allemagne s’était emparé &nbsp;du Kamerun à travers le traité germano-douala de 1884, &nbsp;ratifié par Nachtigal agissant au nom du chancelier. Ce traité marquait le début de la conquête, de la mise en valeur et de l’exploitation des ressources naturelles du territoire sous protectorat. Dans ce processus d’annexion et de domination, l’administration allemande mit en place, une politique de pacification territoriale et de gestion des ressources. Dès lors, le Kamerun fut soumis à une dynamique de gestion des ressources oscillant entre exploitation et protection. L’exploitation des ressources avait servi à l’approvisionnement régulier de la métropole en matières premières notamment en produits agricoles et en produits forestiers destinés aux bons fonctionnements des industries. Aussi, les allemands s’intéressèrent-ils à la protection de l’environnement par l’élaboration et l’application des ordonnances. Sur la base des données secondaires, le présent travail pose le problème de gestion coloniale des ressources naturelles à l’époque coloniale.</p> 2018-04-30T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## CORRUPTION: AN OBSTACLE TO THE POLITICO/ECONOMIC AND PEACE DEVELOPMENT OF NIGERIA 2018-05-03T13:51:11+00:00 Dr. Eugene Anowai <p>The pervasiveness of corruption in Nigeria has been recognized as a significant obstacle to her political and economic development. Since the term‘development’ originally and etymologically means apositive movement towards growth, progress and positive realization of the potentialities of entity or<br>process or event in question, the corruption of the process impedes progress or mares the attainment of political and economic goals. Therefore, the purpose of this paper is to reveal the causes of corruption in Nigeria, the factors that create opportunities for it and its effects in her economic and political development. This paper will argue that corruption is a major impediment to the promotion of effective government and a sustained economic growth. This situation leads to an overall corrosive effect on Nigeria’s national development peace.</p> 2018-04-30T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## FAMILY & ATTITUDE: AN EMPIRICAL STUDY AMONG YOUNG PEOPLE WITH INTELLECTUAL DISABILITY 2018-05-03T14:05:33+00:00 Sharanya N <p>The proportionality of people with mental health problems in the country is quite alarming. Families of children with mental retardation are confronted with various challenges. Majority of the siblings adjust relatively well with their brother or sister with disability.&nbsp; While some siblings will have a limited capacity to adapt with the environment. This in turn affects the overall well-being of the family. &nbsp;The study examines the attitude of siblings towards mentally retarded children. The study was conducted in Malappuram district of Kerala and the research design was descriptive. The results of the study showed that lots of the respondents have a negative attitude towards their mentally retarded brother/ sister. Hence results are discussed and further suggestions are given.</p> 2018-04-30T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## ROLE OF ETHICAL ORIENTATION &PROACTIVE PERSONALITY IN FOSTERING CSR PERCEPTION OF MANAGEMENT STUDENTS 2018-05-03T17:04:47+00:00 Prof. Sanket Sunand Dash Dr. Kalpana Sahoo <p><strong>Purpose</strong></p> <p>The purpose of the present study was to examine the role of ethical orientation and proactive personality in fostering Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) perception of management students. CSR is a philanthropic, ethical and behavioural orientation towards closing the business strategic gaps in global networking and it creates ties with the communities. CSR activities are driven mainly by the human resource development. Students are perceived as future managers of the corporate world and their perception about CSR is deemed important to business organizations. The students can make companies understand their responsibility towards various stakeholders. So, our target sample is management students who can help and understand the perception of CSR. &nbsp;</p> <p><strong>&nbsp;</strong></p> <p><strong>Design/methodology/approach</strong></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>A sample of 242 management students of a university are participated in a survey. After doing a review of literature, we selected three scales: Perceived Role of Ethics and Social Responsibility (PRESOR), Proactive Personality and Perceptions of CSR scales are used in survey. Descriptive statistics is used to test the hypotheses.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Findings </strong></p> <p>Exploratory factor analysis and content analysis suggested that CSR perceptions can be further sub-divided into independent constructs such as perceptions of Philanthropic CSR and perceptions of Ethical CSR. Findings reveal that the both PRESOR and proactive personality are positively correlated with Philanthropic CSR but only PRESOR is positively related to CSR Ethical.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Research limitations/implications</strong></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>While the scope of this study is limited to management students in one organization and results may not generalize to different students in different regions. Hence, future studies should test the given hypotheses in different discipline of students. The findings suggest that management education should incorporate CSR course or projects and is a part of business management education.</p> <p><strong>&nbsp;</strong></p> <p><strong>Practical implications</strong></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Implications of these results for management educators and practitioners are that proper guidance and trainings are required to increase awareness for CSR activities and engage proactive students to put their values they bring to those classes. Today's students may represent a new source of corporate social responsibility. The dimensions identified in the study if incorporated by the business in its day-to-day operations can make it socially responsible as well as socially acceptable in the true sense.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Originality/value</strong></p> <p>This research makes an empirical contribution to identify the factors which management students expect business enterprises should do to be justified as socially responsible corporate citizens. Experienced and non-experienced students create a vast difference to the business world. Now students hold long term goal which is a positive syndrome for business organization.</p> 2018-04-30T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## THE EFFECT OF MANAGING RISK PROCESS IN CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS 2018-05-12T13:13:02+00:00 Khanm Noori Kaka HamaAttar <p>The aim of this study is to get a better understanding for the effect of the set of the risks in the construction projects, in addition to how mitigating these risks in those projects. Indeed risks are frequently playing the same rules, but the nature of project defines the specific risks of the project. The first step in process of risks assessment is identification them. Once risk identification is complete, risk analysis is used to identify the likelihood the risks that have been identified will happen. Thus by using evidence from other research in the area, this study showed the impact of the set of the stages in the risk management process in the construction projects, which were discussed in greater detail in the theoretical aspect of the current study. The findings of the study were revealed the fact that the comprehension of risk and its management has the direct effect of understanding specific issues that involve to the project. In addition to that, the integration of a risk management process at each stage of its stages in construction projects must be oriented to the progress of the project and permeate all areas, functions and processes of the project. In this regard, the most successful project managers maintain open lines of communication throughout their organizations to stay in touch with constituent’s needs.</p> 2018-04-30T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement##
