    No full text
    This article presents a thorough investigation into the disparities related to gender and age in the domains of Self-Control, Stress Coping, and Subjective Well-Being among Palestinian Arab Adolescents. The primary goal was to examine these differences within a sample of 300 Palestinian Arab adolescents aged 12 to 15 in the northern triangle of Israel. Meticulously crafted questionnaires were distributed to collect data on self-control, stress coping, and subjective well-being. Our findings unveil significant variations in self-control skills between male and female Palestinian Arab adolescents, while subjective well-being does not display gender-based differences. Moreover, a significant difference was found between the two groups on self-control skills t(298)= -13.01, p<.001. Palestinian Arab adolescents between 14-15 Years of age showed higher self-control abilities (M = 4.10, SD = 0.27) than Palestinian Arab adolescents between 12-13 Years of age (M = 3.63, SD = 0.35). Additionally, our study reveals substantial differences in stress-coping mechanisms between male and female Palestinian Arab adolescents, underscoring the significance of acknowledging gender and age disparities in self-control, subjective well-being, and stress-coping strategies. These insights have the potential to guide interventions and support systems aimed at enhancing the well-being and resilience of Palestinian Arab adolescents

    This paper addresses a research gap in tourism studies by examining the distinctive case of the Paluang Car Temple in Nusa Penida. While discussions on authenticity and uniqueness in tourism are prevalent, research exploring these concepts in culturally unique, non-mainstream destinations like Nusa Penida remains limited. The unique cultural elements, exemplified by the car-shaped shrines at the Paluang Temple, influence a destination\u27s appeal. By analyzing the impact of these features on tourist experiences and overall destination allure, this research provides insights into the development of tourism products that leverage local distinctiveness. It contributes to a broader understanding of how authenticity and uniqueness shape travel preferences, bridging a critical gap in tourism and cultural studies.Employing a descriptive-qualitative approach aligned with the interpretive method, the article delves into the attraction of the Car Temple\u27s unconventional design, which has attracted significant attention. Despite its modest place in the Balinese temple hierarchy, the temple consistently features on religious tour itineraries in Nusa Penida, driven by its unmatched uniqueness and authenticity. Additionally, the Car Temple often complements visits to the renowned Klingking Beach, a nearby tourism highlight. In summary, this paper underscores the pivotal role of the Car Shrines\u27 uniqueness in motivating tourists, contributing to the temple\u27s success in a competitive tourism market

    The problematic use of smartphones is increasingly common in the population; it is necessary to investigate both the associated factors and the relationship that this situation could have with relevant aspects such as the sense of life and subjective well-being. The objective of this study was oriented to identify the presence of smartphone dependence in a sample of university students in Colombia, Cuba and Mexico and its possible association with the meaning of life, psychological well-being and self-regulation. It was the quantitative study with descriptive-correlational level and cross-sectional design, with the sample of 276 university students from these three countries, with the average age of M 23.5 (Dt 6.7), distributed in the range between 17 and 60 years. The Brief Mobile Phone Dependence Test, the Argentine adaptation of the meaning in life test and the Spanish adaptation of the scales of psychological well-being of Ryff were used. The results of study indicate a trend towards problematic cell phone use in the study sample, related to certain difficulties in commitment to the meaning of life and deficiencies at the level of self-regulation, especially at younger ages. Problematic smartphone use was associated with less sense of life, psychological well-being and self-regulation. As a main conclusion, the healthy use of technology is a priority goal for the education of young people, which requires delaying the age of initiation in the possession of cell phones and tablets, promotion of critical-reflective thinking skills, self-regulation and cognitive, executive, and metacognitive skills.&nbsp

    The exercise of strategic management is an essential aspect as it conjures up a glossy picture of the expectations of the public organisations. However, currently it lacks an intricate arrangement of formal and casual handling of work for it to yield maximum output in the sphere of South African municipalities. Although strategic management is not alien to the facilitation of municipalities’ development, the existing literature does not provide a rigorous and structured conceptualisation of strategic management in the context of sustainable socio-economic development of the municipalities. Hence, the purpose of this study is to explore the significance of strategic management in sustaining socio-economic development at selected municipality in South Africa. The paper adopted exploratory research design and qualitative research approach. The target population was 26 municipal officials at the selected municipality. Thematic analysis was used to analyse the data. This study made use of the qualitative and in-depth interviews in collecting data. The findings indicated that the strategic management plays a significant in the governance of sustainable socio-economic development of the municipality. The results revealed that strategic plans of municipalities were properly implemented and managed. However, further analysis of data indicated that there were constraints that hamper the execution of plans which include inadequate resources, innumerable flaws on the performance management system, non-alignment of development programmes and unskilled personnel. In relation to practical implications, the management must ensure adequate finances and infrastructure are made available in order to execute the set strategic plans

    Get PDF
    Karma yoga is an ancient principle of Indian Philosophy. Karma means action, yoga means the state. It suggests the way to live in the world without getting entangled in wrong and sinful action. One of the Hindu religious text Bhagavad-Gītā, Chapter three explain the teachings of Karma Yoga. Karma yoga is the performance of prescribed duties obligatory for everyone. In Karma Yoga, Lord Krishna explains how duty can be performed as abided by responsibility in different stages of life. Lord Krishna goes on to detail the reasons why these responsibilities are so important, the benefits of fulfilling them, the drawbacks of failing to do so, the paths that lead to bondage and the paths that lead to redemption, and so on. The Bhagavad-Gītā prescribes two things that are essentially required to practice Karma yoga: (1) the karma yogin should not have an attainment of the fruits of action and (2) He ought to perform his actions as they are suggested to him. It will also elaborate the concept of Niskamakarma, in this context Gītā says ‘Do your duty without aspiration of results.’ This paper will summarize the three important concepts of the Gita, viz. Karma yoga, Bhakti Yoga, and Jnana Yoga. Karma yoga leads to Jnana, Jnana leads to Bhakti. Bhakti leads to Salvation. Karma yoga is the foundation to the way of salvation (Mukti). Karma purifies the mind, helping growing Bhakti, which ultimately leads to Jnana. There cannot be Jnana without Karma yoga. Bhakti yoga and Jnana yoga also interlinked. Thus, the paper will try to analyze in a nutshell the importance of Karma yoga, and its significance to attain the highest aim of human life ‘Salvation’ (Mukti)

    Get PDF
    The importance of wellbeing in organisational operations has increased in recent years (particularly as a result of Covid -19). Underlying these expectations is the need to ensure employee happiness, satisfaction and organisational conditions. The new expectations require changed leadership behaviour, decisions and organisational preparedness. The aim of our research is to investigate the conditions of employee happiness and wellbeing in an economic sector specific comparison. There are several approaches to the study of wellbeing in the literature, but all of them focus on employee satisfaction/dissatisfaction by highlighting some characteristic. To enable managers in organisations to respond to needs and make appropriate decisions using the right tools, a holistic approach is needed. Therefore the ‘GNH of Business’ logic was applied in the research. The study focused on 768 enterprises in a small country in Central and Eastern Europe. Following the Bhutanese computational logic, simple and complex statistical analyses were carried out using SPSS 26 software and PLS - path analysis. Authors investigated whether business organisations differ by economic sector in the conditions they can offer their employees to enhance happiness and thus organisational performance. The results show that the companies in the country under study (in all sectors) fall into the average rating category. However, there is a significant difference between organisations in different economic sectors in terms of which organisations are the most well-performing, satisfied and happy. This result provides guidance for both employers and employees seeking employment
