    Teaching is one of the most important profession in which the faculties play a major role in improving the standard of an organization and the country. It is important to determine which factors influence the faculties in their job and it’s important to determine their level of job satisfaction. This study examined the influence of gender on job satisfaction among faculties of private colleges and investigated the extent to which faculties differ in various attitudes and attributes, level of satisfaction with the type of work they do. Stratified random samples of 215 academic faculties from private colleges in India were selected for this study. Findings indicate that differences between male and female faculties in the level of satisfaction were due to negative work experiences such as castism, favoritism, physical appearance, gender discrimination and due to certain source of stress from major life changes, unforeseen events and family social isolation. These negative experiences generated lower levels of job satisfaction among men than women and all these factors that might explain different job satisfaction among faculties at private colleges in India. The attributes that stood out as significant are namely: technical support at work, understanding teaching and research process and responsibilities, broadening role, belonging to an ageing group, need for more outcomes of the work. The paper recognizes the importance of gender differences in workplace and it should be controlled to improve the job satisfaction among faculties in private colleges.&nbsp

    The research has been conducted on the hydrodynamics analysis of compost soil mixture and its implications for growth and potassium uptake in corns. The study design arranged in a completely randomized method with six repetitions for soil treatment (T0), a mixture of soil:compost 3:1 (T1), and a mixture of soil:compost 1:1 (T2) also treatment without nutrients (N0), NPK with 200 kg/ha concentration (N1), and NPK with 400 kg/ha concentration. (N2). The research method was conducted on the porosity, capillarity and water holding test. The results showed soil:compost mix of 1:1 has a porosity value of 0.66±0.01 (11% greater than the porosity of the soil) and water holding value of 64.79±1.99 (18% greater than water holding of the soil). Corn plants grown in soil:compost mix of 1:1 has grown 35% higher than the planting of corn in soil and biomass gain of 125%. Potassium uptake in corn plants grown in compost soil mix 1:1 are 5% higher than the potassium uptake of corn plants grown in soil. This can be concluded that giving compost to the soil can improve the structure of soil and the flow of water from the soil to the plant as well as the implications for the growth and potassium uptake in plants

    The purpose of this paper is to develop the machine learning model to evaluate game software in quantitative scale using opinion mining with the review comments which are provided by users in Korean. To do this, we first decompose the review comments into a lot of meaningful morphemes, and second construct a dictionary for opinion mining. Third, we develop a k-NN model to predict the polarity of review comment. Finally, we predict the polarity for each review comment which is included in validation data set by the model. The experimental results of the developed model are performed by the model which is implemented by JAVA and R language

    There are several methods to prepare electro-catalysts for low temperature fuel cells. Platinum is used as a common electro-catalyst for this purpose. Electrodeposition method is applied for preparing platinum on modified carbon paper as electrode directly. Many parameters effect on performance of prepared electrodes. At this work, the effect of type of electrolyte in electrodeposition solution was investigated for making electro-catalyst that is be used as anode in Glucose Alkaline Air Fuel Cell (GAAFC). Cyclic voltammetry ((1.2-0.6) V vs. Ag/AgCl sat. KCl, 100 mV/S) is used as electrodeposition method. Number of CV cycles is varied 10 to 50. Electrodeposition was performed in two precursor solution (0.5 M) containing phosphate and sulfate anions. Platinum concentration in solution was 3 mM. The prepared electro-catalysts were studied for Glucose Oxidation Reaction (GOR) by CV analysis in 0.3 M glucose solution and 0.5 M KOH. Also, Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS) method was used. According our results, the type of anion in electrodeposition solution affects on properties of prepared platinum electro-catalyst for GOR. Optimized condition for number of CV cycles in phosphate and sulfate solutions is 10 and 40 respectively.&nbsp

    The study aims to identify the personality traits of the business administration students and how these traits affect their entrepreneurial intentions. Specifically, the undertaking tries to examine the (1) significant relationships between the respondents’ personality traits and their entrepreneurial intentions; (2) significant difference between the respondents’ sex and their personality traits; and (3) significant difference between the respondents’ sex and their entrepreneurial intentions. The respondents were randomly selected in the five higher education institutions in Pampanga, Philippines. Using correlational-descriptive research, the undertaking revealed that the respondents’ openness to experience, conscientiousness, agreeableness, and neuroticism have significant relationship to entrepreneurial intentions. On one hand, respondents’ extraversion reflects no significant relationship to entrepreneurial intentions. Overall, there is statistically significant relationship between respondents’ personality traits and their entrepreneurial intentions. Furthermore, there is statistically significant difference between the respondents’ sex and openness to experience, conscientiousness, and extraversion. Contrary, no significant difference was observed between the respondents’ sex and agreeableness and neuroticism. In totality, there is a statistical significant difference between the respondents’ sex and their entrepreneurial intentions.&nbsp

    Motivation: This millennium constitutes an important context for any analysis or any intervention in policies of language at the level of states and regions and globally worldwide.  Objectives:The objectives of this work were to examine the concepts  of expansion or limitation of language planning and language policy and the scope of such concepts in specific linguistic situations such as in Nigeria with international languages. Methodology:It describes the hierarchy and functioning of languages in the world and in Nigeria in particular. It also focuses on the two strongest trends characterizing the current dynamic: the displacement of minority languages as the case in Nigeria and the expansion of English, French and Chinese as the sole world languages. In addition, this article studies the main strategies employed by various actors to oppose these trends, including in particular the representatives of the major national languages such as Igbo, Yoruba, Hausa in Nigeria as an example, whose presence is threatened in several strategic geographical areas. Findings: The reinforcement of local languages  weakens national languages that are obstacle for the expansion of English. The reverse is observed in Nigeria where minority languages are not revitalized and where only major languages are thought in schools therefore neglecting minority languages and as a consequence reinforcing the expansion of English. This tendency can only be reversed if anything like a major language is wiped out, therefore giving a chance to every language to prosper and this will also help to stop other languages to disappear. Research Outcomes: This study highlights the role of stakeholders and emphasizes the importance of an expanded concept of language planning that takes into account all the competing forces so as to ensure the success of language policies. Future Scope: It is clear that States, families and enterprises learn languages of  higher statuses in the hierarchy and this explains the progress  and the expansion of the English circle but also of other super central languages such as Spanish but more importantly the new attractive pole which is Mandarin but also Nigerian languages
