His voluntarism – subjectivism, perspectivism and moral nihilism – appealed to a philosophy that rejected the analytical approach after the Frege-Russell legacy. Living in a Saussure world of webs of words, only de-construction could harness theoretical chaos. However, Nietzsche’s theory of so- cial stratification sits very badly with postmodernism. Maybe the new humanitarianism in the making will reduce the admi- ration for him?</p> Jan-Erik Lane ##submission.copyrightStatement## Sun, 25 Feb 2018 00:00:00 +0000 EFFECT OF CAPITAL MARKET ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF NIGERIA ECONOMY (1990-2015) <p>The study investigated the impact of the capital market on growth of Nigerian economy. The study used a 26-years&nbsp; time series data.(1990-2015) to regress GDP(dependent vari- able) on capital market development indicators: market cap- italization ratio (MACR), turnover ratio (TUOR), total value of Shares traded (TVSR) total new issues (TNISS), total listed Equities and Government stock (TLEGS) and financial deep- ening (FDEEF). The Ordinary least squares (OLS) multiple regression estimation techniques were adopted in the analysis. The study has shown that, capital market development vari- ables, significantly affect economic growth of Nigeria. This implies that the operations of the Nigerian capital market have had significant impact on the Nigerian economy. The study recommended that more listings as well as foreign investors’ participation should further be encouraged in order to improve market capitalization. In addition, the regulatory authorities should ensure transparency, fair trading transactions and deal- ings in the market to restore confidence, among others.</p> Lucky E.

Many research scholars in this field have brainstormed on the concept of equivalence and many of them tend to think that it is not a simple matter to try and establish the expected or required sameness between the source language and the target language. There are numerous challenges that translators are faced with in their effort to establish similarity or sameness between the source text and the target text. The debate surrounding the notion of equivalence started as early the 1950s, and ever since, the topic has not only been problematic but also controversial, with many arguing that no two languages in the whole world are absolutely identical in meaning. They further argue that equivalence can only be understood as a kind of likeness and not sameness. Consequently, numerous theories have emerged and have been expounded on the possibility of the source text and target text sharing some kind of approximation in meaning. This work has attempted to critically examine some of the limitations concerning the issue of equivalence in translation as propagated by a number of specialists in the field of translation theories. This article also stresses the fact every translator is likely to face these challenges, as they endeavour to convey the same message from the source language to the target language.</p> Gerald Chishiba ##submission.copyrightStatement## Sun, 25 Feb 2018 00:00:00 +0000 ADOPTION OF SUSTAINABLE ENTREPRENEURSHIP IN SMALL AND MEDIUM ENTERPRISES (SMES) IN DEVELOPING COUNTRIES: LITERATURE REVIEW <p>Sustainable entrepreneurship has been internationally ac- knowledged by both large and SMEs as a competitive strat- egy. However, there are few studies on the motivation, barriers and strategies of enhancing SMEs adoption of sustainable en- trepreneurship particularly in developing economies. the pur- pose of this study is to conduct a literature review regarding SMEs adoption of sustainable entrepreneurship focusing on themotivation, barriers and the way forward to promote SMEs adoption of sustainable entrepreneurship.</p> Kasimu Sendawula, Peter Turyakira, Juma Bananuka ##submission.copyrightStatement## Mon, 26 Feb 2018 00:00:00 +0000 A STUDY OF THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE QUALITY OF ADMINISTRATIVE SERVICES AND ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE AT TSHWANE UNIVERSITY OF TECHNOLOGY <p>The purpose of the study was to identify and quantify factors that affect the ability of administrative employees of Tshwane University of Technology (TUT) to provide highly profes- sional admission related services to students and relevant stakeholders at the 8 residential campuses of TUT in South Africa. The study was conducted by collecting data from a stratified random sample of size 120 employees of TUT. Data was gathered by use of a structured questionnaire and in-depth interviews. The sample size of the study was equal to n=120. A combination of quantitative and qualitative methods of data collection and analysis were used for conducting the study. As part of the quantitative aspect of study, data analysis was per- formed by using methods such as frequency tables, cross-tab analyses, logit analysis, Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) algorithms and Bayesian analysis. The performance of em- ployees was assessed by using a composite index developed by Korschun, Bhattacharya and Swain (2014) for conducting a similar study. The study found that 68 of 120 respondents who were selected for the study (56.67%) were capable of provid- ing highly professional services to students and relevant stake- holders by the standards of Korschun, Bhattacharya and Swain (2014), whereas the remaining 52 respondents (43.33%) were incapable of doing the same. Results obtained from logit anal- ysis, MCMC algorithms and Bayesian analysis showed that the ability of employees to provide highly professional admis- sion related services to students and relevant stakeholders was significantly influenced by 3 factors. These predictor variables were having the best interest of customers at all times, having adequate knowledge about procedures and queries from cus- tomers, and showing courtesy to customers at all times, in a decreasing order of strength.</p> Ignitious Moraba, Zeleke Worku ##submission.copyrightStatement## Mon, 26 Feb 2018 00:00:00 +0000 FACTORS THAT AFFECT PRODUCTIVITY AT MEDUPI POWER PROJECT STATION SOUTH AFRICA <p><strong>Purpose </strong>– the purpose of the paper is to provide the overview in the factors that undermine overall productivity at Medupi Power Station in the project level.</p> <p><strong>Design/methodology/approach - </strong>The study was conducted by gathering data from a stratified random sample of 240 respondents.&nbsp; The research subjected the publish the findings based on the 120 employees of Medupi Power Station Project (internal stakeholders of Medupi Power Station Project) and an additional 120 external stakeholders of Medupi Power Station Project.&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Finding</strong> - A learning organisation is necessary to ensure future sustainability.&nbsp; An organisation needs to use adaptive and generative learning to build on its strengths, to streamline its processes, and must be committed to innovation to remain competitive.&nbsp; Organisational learning is embraced and forms part of the organisational culture.&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Research limitation/implication – </strong>The focus is the implementation of change management to influence productivity on the project. This includes the effective use of communications in communicating changes and adopting an innovative approach improving productivity, and that normally individuals tend to value leaders primarily for their abilities as orators.</p> <p><strong>Practical implication </strong>– It is possible for the project to ensure that better training or enforcement is conducted, to allow employees to be ahead of their work requirements and advancing to the new developmental area. This will be translated inside out, out to the external stakeholders, demonstrating a productive business.</p> <p><strong>Social implication –</strong> Effective communication is essential for the management of change in large institutions, and is closely related to the fundamental principles of good corporate governance.&nbsp; Effective communication is a pivotal tool for outlining the outcomes of change, ranging to negative shift to positive alignments required due to sudden shifts.&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Originality/value – </strong>The paper provide an overview perspective at the role of effective communication and training in ensuring that change is managed and implemented effectively.</p> Sifiso Brian Khumalo ##submission.copyrightStatement## Mon, 26 Feb 2018 00:00:00 +0000 OPTIMIZING THE AIR TRANSPORT OPERATIONS OF INDONESIAN NATIONAL ARMY-AIR FORCE ON OVERCOMING THE IMPACT OF THE FUTURE NATURAL DISASTERS <p><em>The disaster relief action principles would be do it promptly, by all means, and at any cost. These principles also implemented in the quick response action during the operation of search and rescue for the disaster victims of tsunami waves in Aceh a few years&nbsp; ago. For this pupose, the Indonesian National Army deployed an air transfortation operation as a military operation other than war duty. It taok place for three months carrying million of ton cargos and passengers to and fro the disaster areas at Aceh and North Sumatra Province. Although, behe fing in the disaster relief principles, but along with the limitation and searcity of resources, it is not a taboo to work efficiently even in the disaster relief programs. For that reason, the purpose of the research is to find out wether the air transportation operation carried out by the Indonesian Air Force at that time have already performed efficiently. This information could be obtained by obserbing the aircraft movement us during the operation. The information to be compared with the result of simulation of marginal utility mode. As the conclusion is the forms of aircraft movement pattern in efficiently or the optimal condition.</em></p> Lilik Suryaningsih, IG. P.
