    The purpose of this paper is to investigate performance measurement implemented by Internet retailers, its variation in terms of business format, and its potential effect. A mail survey among UK Internet retailers produced 252 usable responses of small and medium-sized businesses. The results indicate that Internet retailers without store presence are likely to have higher complexity of performance measurement than those with store presence. The potential effect of performance measurement to improve business performance was also observed. The results are limited to UK small-and-medium sized Internet retailers, selling tangible goods. The study suggests Internet retailers to measure various aspect of their performance because of its potential impact in improving operational performance. The paper has contributed to enhance the understanding of performance measurement in e-commerce firms and its impact on performance

    Using Wikipedia and Conceptual Graph Structures to Generate Questions for Academic Writing Support

    In this paper, we present a novel approach for semiautomatic question generation to support academic writing. Our system first extracts key phrases from students’ literature review papers. Each key phrase is matched with a Wikipedia article and classified into one of five abstract concept categories: Research Field, Technology, System, Term, and Other. Using the content of the matched Wikipedia article, the system then constructs a conceptual graph structure representation for each key phrase and the questions are then generated based the structure. To evaluate the quality of the computer generated questions, we conducted a version of the Bystander Turing test, which involved 20 research students who had written literature reviews for an IT methods course. The pedagogical values of generated questions were evaluated using a semiautomated process. The results indicate that the students had difficulty distinguishing between computer-generated and supervisor-generated questions. Computer-generated questions were also rated as being as pedagogically useful as supervisor-generated questions, and more useful than generic questions. The findings also suggest that the computer-generated questions were more useful for the first-year students than for second or third-year students

    The Socio-Cultural aspects of management control system in Chinese business firm

    Get PDF
    This paper attempts to outline the achievement of the studies of socio- cultural aspects in Management Control System with specific reference to the Chinese business firm. Rather than relying upon the Hofstede's positivistic psychological cultural dimensions in analysing the area, a more anthropological view of culture is used to obtain richer understanding of the correlation between culture, society and organisational control. Finally, the paper also points out an alternative perspective in studying this area, i.e the perspective of ethnicity. It is argued that such a perspective may offer a richer analysis of the socio-cultural aspects

    Dalam upaya mencari senyawa antikanker dari tumbuhan, telah dilakukan uji toksisitas terhadap larva artemia Salina leach.fraksi n-heksan, kloroform, etil asetat dan air dari ekstrak etanol 80% rimpang temu putih (Curcuma zedoaria (Berg.) Rosc.) menggunakan metode Brine Shrimp Lethality Test(BST). Kandungan senyawa yang terdapat pada rimpang tanaman diekstraksi dengan Soxhlet menggunakan pelarut etanol 80%. Ekstrak etanol setelah diuapkan pelarutnya, difraksinasi berturut-turut menggunakan pelarut n-heksan, kloroform dan etil asetat. Fraksi-fraksi yang diperoleh diuji toksisitasnya pada konsentrasi 1000,100, 10 ug/ml menggunakan metode Meyer et al. (1982), dan harga LCso dihitung menggunakan Probit Analysis Methode. Hasil penelitian menunjukkan bahwa harga LCso, untuk fraksi n-heksan, kloroform, etil asetat dan air masing-masing adalah: 33,lO; 276,85; 4600,16 dan 2492,57 ug/ml., sehingga dinyatakan bahwa fraksi n-heksan dan kloroform toksik, dan mempunyai prospek untuk diuji lebih lanjut dengan uji sitotoksik/antikanker, karena mempunyai harga LCso<lOOO pgfml

    Today, many firms were struggling with the combined impact of high interest rates, growing international competition and shrinking productivity, which led to the demand for greater accountability in all functions of the company. The new human resource function was not exempt from this trend, and while methods for assessing the costs and benefits of HR programs were available, they were not widely utilized. Strategic alliances between firms are now a ubiquitous phenomenon. Their proliferation has led to a growing stream of research by strategy and organizational scholars who have examined some of the causes and consequences of such partnerships, mostly at the dyadic level. It will develop a social network perspective on some of the key questions associated with strategic alliances, going beyond the dyadic level to the larger network in which alliances are embedded. Over the years, there has been tremendous emphasis placed on HR practitioners becoming strategic business partners and being a value-added source within organizations. Furthermore, the HR function is often viewed as an expense-generator and an administrative function and not as a value-added partner. Businesses have long understood the importance of networking and how it helps them grow their business through referrals. In recent years, there has been a shift from traditional local networking events arranged by chambers or associations to online networking, which is global in nature. According to all reality conditions above and the fundamental basic concept that HR always become an specific asset and have several roles in organization to reach goals, So, the specific question is how we prepare our HR to have strong capabilities as Human Capital (HC) to enable the organization network activities implementation will be more effective and efficient. This condition will impact organization value and its capability to have higher competitive advantage chance

    Free radical-induced oxidative stress is the root cause for many human diseases. Naturally occurring antioxidant supplements from plants are vital to counter the oxidative damage in cells. The main objective of the present study was to explore and compare the antioxidant activity of rice bran and rice husk extracted from rice milling waste. N-hexane extracts of rice bran and rice husk were used to study their in vitro antioxidant activities using metal chelating activity (iron (II)-phenanthroline complex). Vitamin E was used as standard material. The ability of the sample to chelate metal ion (ferrous ion) was calculated relative to the control and expressed as % inhibition. % inhibition of two samples were analyzed with student test (P=0.05). The results have shown that at the same concentration (10 ppm), rice husk extract, rice bran extract and vitamin E have the different activity, i.e.: 0.51%, 2.27% and 5.55% in inhibition of chelat formation, respectively. In conclusion, metal chelating activity of rice husk extract is smaller than rice bran extract. Activity of rice bran extract is almost a half from vitamin E, so thi
