  • Contextualizing Anti-Immigrant Attitudes of East Europeans

    • Abstract: This paper article examines attitudes toward immigrants by analyzing data from the 2010 and 2016 waves of the EBRD’s Life in Transition Survey among respondents from 16 East European countries. Logistic regressions with clustered standard errors and country fixed effects show significantly higher anti-immigrant sentiments after the 2015 immigration pressures on the European Union borders compared with attitudes in 2010. Almost two thirds of the respondents agreed in 2016 that immigrants represented a burden on the state social services, even when the actual immigrant population in these countries was quite small. In addition, East Europeans expressed greater negative sentiments when the issue of immigration was framed as an economic problem—a burden on state social services—than as a cultural problem—having immigrants as neighbors. On the whole, these results point to the importance of contextualizing anti-immigrant attitudes and understanding the effect of external events and the framing of immigration-related survey questions.

  • Clustering Applied to the Education: A K-means and Hierarchical
           Application

    • Abstract: Currently, most schools in the world use ICT, which is why students must make use of computers and mobile devices in and out of schools. Thanks to the use of technology, students are more interested and motivated to learn, considering that motivation is one of the main engines of learning, since it encourages activity and thought. On the other hand, motivation makes students spend more time working and therefore they are more likely to learn more. The aim of this paper was to present a clustering of European countries according to the number of desktop computers available to students in primary schools (ISCED 1), lower secondary schools (ISCED 2) and upper secondary schools (ISCED 3). Was used the database developed by the ES Open Data Portal for the year 2019 on "ICT in Education". For the classification were used the hierarchical clustering and K-means techniques and the statistical software Rcran 3.6.3. These techniques were used as they have the ability to group a large number of elements into clusters, based on the similarity learned. This paper concludes that the countries with the highest GDP are not the ones that have the most desktop computers in their schools. Bulgaria is the country with the major number of desktop computers in their schools.

  • Long-Lasting Challenge With Public School Evaluation Policy in Georgia

    • Abstract: The aspiration of Georgia to become the EU member supported introduction of European guiding principles and systems in education policy, including, the systems of education quality assurance in the country. In 2005 – 2011, the evaluation mechanisms of educational institutions of all three levels – high, vocational and general educational institutions got gradually activated. However, evaluation of quality of only private general educational institutions started. As for public schools, the process got postponed four times. The last one is reported by 2026-2027. Almost 90 % of pupils in Georgia studies at public schools, therefore, it can be stated that, overall, the quality evaluation policy of schools in the country is facing serious challenges, which cannot be solved yet. The article discusses those problems of the policy of school quality evaluation, which prevent starting of evaluating public schools and relevant ways of solving them are offered.

  • The “Day After” Covid-19 Pandemic: Logistical Disorders in
           Perspective

    • Abstract: Half of humanity experienced an unprecedented situation of lockdown during the Covid-19 pandemic of 2020. The sharp slowdown in trade and the shutdown of entire industrial and commercial sectors had major economic consequences, with a historic collapse in household consumption, particularly in Europe. One country after another decided to gradually organize a lockdown exit, taking into account the heavy health constraints involved. This lockdown exit, and the resulting boom of trade, is likely to come up against a major disruption of supply chains, which needs to be evaluated now. The research note proposes an exploratory reflection on a unique situation since the WW II, and the logistical implications of what can be called the “day after” the Covid-19 pandemic. In order to limit serious disorders in product flow monitoring, the question of a moderate rhythm of lockdown exit and economic recovery is raised.

  • From Mutual Hedging to All-Round Competition — The Strategic
           Transformation of Sino-US relations

    • Abstract: Since the 21st century, the United States has gradually felt the insecurity brought by structural pressure, and then shifted its strategic focus to the Asia-Pacific region. The Obama administration put forward "Pivot to Asia", and Trump has abandoned the legacy of the previous administration and constructed his own discourse system. He put forward the "Indo-Pacific strategy", which has been expanded in both degree and contents. Meanwhile, China has taken a variety of corresponding strategies respectively. These include the Belt and Road Initiative and a community with a shared future for mankind and the strategic thought of major country diplomacy with Chinese characteristics. These two countries’ communicating model has changed from mutual hedging to all-round competition. With the change of US Asia Pacific (Indo-Pacific) strategy, this article uses the neoclassical realism theory to analyze them in detail, and analyzes the factors that influence the change of US strategies and the transformation of Sino-US relations from the system level, the national level and the individual level. Apart from that, their comprehensive competition has added challenges and difficulties to the construction of coordination, cooperation and stability.

  • Building Patient Trust in the Era of National Health Insurance:
           Consequences of Healthcare Service Quality, Satisfaction and Health
           Conditions

    • Abstract: This study aimed to develop a patient trust model that contributes to patient satisfaction and quality healthcare services by focusing on the role of patient health condition as a moderator. Data were collected from three regional general hospitals in East Java, Indonesia, using a questionnaire administered to patients or the families of patients. The proposed model consists of seven constructs. Four represent the quality of healthcare: quality of interaction (five variables), physical environment quality (four variables), outcome quality (three variables), and justice quality (six variables). One construct represents the patient’s health condition (two variables), another represents patient satisfaction (six variables), and the last one is patient trust (six variables). The model was tested using structural equation modeling based on WarpPLS. The goodness-of-fit statistic supported the patient trust model. The hypothesis testing results indicated that physical environment quality, outcome quality, justice quality, and health conditions could predict patient satisfaction. The health condition construct was found to moderate the effect of justice quality on patient satisfaction. Moreover, interaction quality, outcome quality, health condition, and patient satisfaction had an influence on patient trust.

  • What Independence Is

    • Abstract: Eighty years ago, in a short essay entitled “What Is Independence',” Richard Robinson (1902-1996) made two errors that, to my knowledge, remain uncorrected. The errors are (1) claiming that entailment entails consistency (it does not) and (2) misstating the relation of subcontrariness. To make good on my claim that these are errors, I present and explain, in a more systematic way than Robinson does, nine distinct logical relations, one of which is independence. There are independent reasons for making these relations—as well as their relations to one another—better known to philosophers.

  • Exploring the Emotional Intelligence Needs of University Lecturers in
           Managing Work-Related Challenges

    • Abstract: The emotional intelligence needs of Nigerian university lecturers in managing work‑related challenges were investigated in this study. A qualitative research approach of phenomenological interpretive design was used. Twelve university lecturers were selected purposively from three sampled Nigerian universities to participate in the research. The recorded interviews were transcribed and thereafter analysed with the assistance of ATLAS.ti 8 software. The four main themes that emerged were (a) struggling with regular work activities and emerging emotions, (b) finding a balance amidst many different demands and the lack of resources, (c) adaptability and adjustment problems, and (d) lack of emotional support from the university and possible reasons. The findings revealed that emotional intelligence needs regarding self-management and the management of relationships are present within the universities. The study also revealed that there is a need for institutional based policy to steer the addition of emotional intelligence exercise in academic systematic Professional improvement undertakings to ensure quality management of work challenges and the associated emotions. It is suggested that such training could be implemented through seminars and workshops in the various departments.

  • Growth of Sharing Economy in Hungary; Long Distance Car Sharing - A Case
           Study of Oszkár

    • Abstract: Rapid growth of sharing economy in the last two decades is the outcome of a paradigm shift in global capitalism and societal values. Based on digital identity and the Trust and Reputation Index, IT platforms have brought together strangers who under new social construct, share under-utilized capacities and assets with those who need them. Radius of trust which was initially confined to family and friends; now encompasses strangers who speak no common language and who live oceans apart. Hungary is no exception to this global shift. Sharing economy in Hungary has registered healthy growth specially in the areas of transportation and accommodation. Oszkár, a long-distance car-sharing company presents a good example of this paradigm shift in societal values and sharing with strangers. This platform has recorded impressive growth of over 67% between 2015-2018 with very positive customer reviews. Moreover, this represents an environmentally-friendly sustainable practice which successfully reduces carbon foot-print and traffic congestion.
