    The study aimed to identify the delegation of authority for the performance of the medical staff and its relationship to improving the quality of health care in Al-Shifa Medical Complex in the southern Palestinian governorates. Administrators, and technicians) with a total of 2150 employees, and the questionnaire was distributed to a stratified random sample of 330 employees, and 302 questionnaires were retrieved, with a rate of 91.5%. One of the most important results of the study was the existence of a statistically significant relationship between delegation of authority and the quality of health care. One of the most important recommendations of the study was to strengthen the direction of senior management towards excellence in patient service, because the patient represents a fundamental focus in health services

    Funding Information: This study was partially supported by FISM with a research grant (FISM2018/R/5), and financed or coÔÇÉfinanced with the ÔÇť5 per milleÔÇŁ public funding. Publisher Copyright: ┬ę 2023 The Authors. Human Brain Mapping published by Wiley Periodicals LLC.Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a neurological condition characterized by severe structural brain damage and by functional reorganization of the main brain networks that try to limit the clinical consequences of structural burden. Resting-state (RS) functional connectivity (FC) abnormalities found in this condition were shown to be variable across different MS phases, according to the severity of clinical manifestations. The article describes a system exploiting machine learning on RS FC matrices to discriminate different MS phenotypes and to identify relevant functional connections for MS stage characterization. To this end, the system exploits some mathematical properties of covariance-based RS FC representation, which can be described by a Riemannian manifold. The classification performance of the proposed framework was significantly above the chance level for all MS phenotypes. Moreover, the proposed system was successful in identifying relevant RS FC alterations contributing to an accurate phenotype classification.Peer reviewe

    Highly selective PtCo bimetallic nanoparticles on silica for continuous production of hydrogen from aqueous phase reforming of xylose

    Hydrogen (H2) is a promising energy vector for mitigating greenhouse gas emissions. Lignocellulosic biomass waste has been introduced as one of the abundant and carbon-neutral H2 sources. Among those, xylose with its short carbon chain has emerged attractive, where H2 can be catalytically released in an aqueous reactor. In this study, a composite catalyst system consisting of silica (SiO2)-supported platinum (Pt)-cobalt (Co) bimetallic nanoparticles was developed for aqueous phase reforming of xylose conducted at 225 ┬░C and 29.3 bar. The PtCo/SiO2 catalyst showed a significantly higher H2 production rate and selectivity than that of Pt/SiO2, whereas Co/SiO2 shows no activity in H2 production. The highest selectivity for useful liquid byproducts was obtained with PtCo/SiO2. Moreover, CO2 emissions throughout the reaction were reduced compared to those of monometallic Pt/SiO2. The PtCo bimetallic nanocatalyst offers an inexpensive, sustainable, and durable solution with high chemical selectivity for scalable reforming of hard-to-ferment pentose sugars

    Legal culture and climate change adaptation : an agenda for research

    Get PDF
    While climate change adaptation research has increasingly focused on aspects of culture, a systematic treatment of the role of legal culture in how communities respond to climate risk has yet to be produced. This is despite the fact that law and legal authority are implicated in most, if not all, of the ways in which actors seek to reduce the risks posed to communities by climate change. Using a scoping review methodology, this article examines the intersection of climate change adaptation and legal culture in existing research. Overall, we find that the significance of legal culture for adaptation actions has been under-explored. Yet, it is also clear that a focus on legal culture holds significant promise for our understanding of climate change adaptation. We set out a research agenda for the field, highlighting the ways in which a focus on legal culture may enrich existing key themes within climate change adaptation research. This article is categorized under: Policy and Governance > Governing Climate Change in Communities, Cities, and Regions Vulnerability and Adaptation to Climate Change > Institutions for Adaptation

    The study of economic growth indicators is of fundamental importance in estimating the effectiveness of economic development plans, as well as the great role it plays in determining appropriate economic policies in order to optimally use the factors that lead to the dynamics of growth in Iraq, especially during a certain period of time. The gross domestic product (GDP) at current prices), which is considered a part of the national accounts, which is considered as an integrated dynamic of statistics that produces in front of policy makers the possibility of determining whether the economy is witnessing a state of expansion or evaluating economic activity and its efficiency in order to reach the size of the overall economy. The research aims to determine the best and most efficient statistical model to be used in forecasting the GDP in Iraq based on time series data for the period from (1970-2020) years. Where the general trend models (Linear trend, Quadratic trend and Exponential Trend) were applied, and the three models were compared to choose the best model using some statistical criteria, including the Akiaki Information Standard (AIC) and Schwartz Standard (SBS). The results showed that the appropriate model is the Quadratic trend model, were predicting and forecasting values are close to the real values of the GDP series

    The Relationship Between of Psychological Capital and School Counsellors Burnout : A Systematic Literature Review

    Get PDF
    This research aims to describe the relationship between psychological capital and school counsellorsÔÇÖ burnout. This research method employed a Systematic Literatur Review, collected reading material from various scientific articles (SCOPUS, EBSCO and SINTA) and subsequently compared relevant theories and research results. Based on the results of a literature study conducted, it was found that there was a significant relationship between psychological capital and school counsellors' burnout. A high state of psychological capital (hope, belief, resilience, and optimism) can provide energy for school counsellors to control behavior and reduce symptoms of burnout (fatigue, negative work environment, indifference to clients, feeling incompetent as a school counselor, and chaotic personal life). School Counsellors who have hope will have goals and know the way to achieve these goals. It makes the school counsellors able to overcome things that make theme burnout. School Counsellors will become more resilient, confident, and optimistic in carrying out their role as school counsellors

    The subject of children legal protection in national laws and international agreements has attracted the attention of all countries and a lot of international and regional organizations since the child recruitment phenomenon is one of the serious problems facing countries and the international community as a whole, especially with the widespread spread of terrorist organizations in all world countries, especially in our Arab region. There are major motives behind the spread of child recruitment phenomenon, the most important of which are the economic motives and insecurity in countries. The seriousness of this phenomenon lies in the numerous effects it has on the recruited child and on countries. The thesis discussed the stages of childhood and its protection under the Islamic Shariaa (law) and national laws. The first chapter dealt with the protection of children within the framework of the principles of international humanitarian law and international conventions and the applications of child recruitment in the Arab countries
