  • A LEOPARD OR A PANTHER' The Pairs of the Stag and the Predator in
           Vittore Carpaccio's Meditation on the Passion

    • Abstract: The current paper will suggest an interpretation of two pairs of animals featured in Vittore Carpaccio's Meditation on the Passion, i.e., a stag and a predator of the Felidae family, which in one case devours the stag, and in the other – follows it. The paper will attempt to answer the question why did Carpaccio choose to paint the same motif twice, and why in two differing variations'The aim of this paper is to contribute to the research of the iconography of Job, and to the research on animal symbolism in art, and particularly the ongoing effort to decipher Carpaccio's Meditation on the Passion. Its specific and unique contribution will be to suggest a new interpretation to the peaceful predator, presented on right-hand side in Carpaccio's Meditation, seeing it in a new light – not as a wild animal tamed by a religious transformation, as suggested in previous literature, but rather as an inherently positive one. This reading will be informed by primary sources, which will be connected here with the stag and their predators in Carpaccio's Meditation for the first time.

  • The Workforce Aging and Challenges for Policy and for Business. The Case
           of Italy

    • Abstract: Across Europe, the working age population is decreasing and aging. In this study, with reference to Italy, we analyze the main demographic trends underlying these processes. By using data from the continuous Labor Force Survey, we show the effects of the overall population dynamics on workforce age structure and its composition by professional activities and economic sector. We argue that the observed changes in the labor market are only partially due to demographic trends since they are strictly intertwined with the rigidity of the Italian economic system. We then illustrate the results of two sample surveys conducted among large and small-medium Italian enterprises, respectively. The main result is that the Italian businesses are moderately aware of the aging process of their human resources, and only a few are worried about it. Only few larger companies are actively implementing strategies of age management in order to cope with the issue. Finally, we discuss the implications for the policy of the above results, also in the light of recommendations from the international organizations.

  • The Individualist Power and Adaptive New Religious Movement: Scientology
           Individual as an Ethical Subject

    • Abstract: New religion movements are one of the most interesting social phenomena in recent decades. As an alternative communal and individualist way of life, these movements offer a transcendental, non-secular way of life that challenges the values of liberal society while remaining within its legal and normative boundaries. In the course of this paper, and by using an analytical description of Foucault’s assumptions, I will examine the discursive and practical operation of the Scientology Church as a new religion movement that transcends the individual subject. I will describe the themes of Scientology as pastoral techniques, and its neo-liberal subjective constitution as a part of the conservative, normative mechanism of modern Western society, while arguing that they pose, at the same time, a potential ethical alternative that subverts the epistemological boundaries of Western liberal society.

  • The Development of Innovative Multimedia through Social Lab to Promote
           Perception of Good Citizenship according to Democratic Values

    • Abstract: This research was aimed to develop and to evaluate the quality of the innovative multimedia through social lab to promote perception of good citizenship according to democratic values, to evaluate the perception results, to evaluate the sampling group’s satisfaction towards the development of innovative multimedia and to evaluate the feedback by the organizer. The sampling group in this study consisted of 2 groups. The first group was 30 state enterprise entrepreneurs from the Community under the Bridge Zone 1 at soi Pracha-Utit 76, the Community at the Back of the Suanthonburirom Park and the Community Moo 3 in the Bang Mod area. They were chosen using purposive sampling method out of those who were filmed in a short film and were willing to be models for a desk calendar and to fill out the questionnaires. The second group was 50 students from the ETM 358 Marketing Communication course and the ETM 361 Presentation Skill 2 course in the second semester of the academic year 2018. They were chosen using purposive sampling method out of those who participated in at least 2 social labs and participated in all the short film events at the cinema. The statistical methods in this research were mean score, standard deviation and feedback by the organizer. The results from the research and development were as follows:The results from the development of the innovative multimedia through social lab to promote perception of good citizenship according to democratic values contained 3 phases with the following major media, minor media and supporting media: short film, desk calendar and facebook page, vinyl banner for publicity with QR code and events to preview the short film and to screen the film at Major Cineplex cinema at Tesco Lotus Bangpakok. The quality of the media contents as evaluated by the expert panel was at a good level (x  = 4.25, S.D. = 0.72). The quality of the media presentation as evaluated by the expert panel was at a very good (x  = 4.61, S.D. = 0.32). The sampling group’s perception of the innovative multimedia was at a high level ( x  = 4.42, S.D = 0.68). The sampling group’s satisfaction towards the innovative multimedia was at a high level ( x  = 4.36, S.D = 0.72). These values confirmed the research hypotheses. The feedback or after action review by the learners showed that the majority had a good attitude towards service learning in conjunction with community-based learning in accordance with the research hypothesis. It was found that social work made students stronger and allowed them to think, analyze and engage in real work. They could communicate collaboratively through presentation and social media network for this course.

  • Alleviation of ‘Generation Gap’ Through Socio-Economic Issues
           Involvement

    • Abstract: The generation gap has been an issue that is rising in many communities. This paper investigates the challenges of ‘generation gap’ and propose a model for closing it. The synthesis of the literature review defines the types of generation gaps and the factors that increase this gap. The contemporary practices and measures used to close this intergeneration gap are identified. Two main approaches are retrieved as a reflection from the literature reviewed: mindset approach and socio-economic engagement approach.The researcher presents a case study that proposes a theoretical framework about connecting the different generations and engaging them through solving socio-economic issues of common interest. The paper recommends further studies in this line where different generations would be engaged more to share knowledge and values and mitigate risks of further gap widening, while solving their socio-economic problems.

  • Leaving and Losing a Job After Childbearing in Italy: A Comparison Between
           2005 and 2012

    • Abstract: This article builds on microdata from the Birth Sample Survey (BSS) carried out by Istat in 2005 and 2012 in order to analyse changes in the occupational status of mothers of young children. We aim in particular to broaden the understanding of the individual and contextual characteristics that can affect the probability of women who were employed during pregnancy of not returning to work in the two years following the child’s birth. The study contributes to existing literature on mothers’ employment in two main ways. First, we take into consideration the different nature - voluntary or involuntary – of the motivations for not returning to work. Second, we attempt to evaluate whether the likelihood of Italian mothers to leave or lose their jobs and the factors affecting these probabilities changed between 2005 and 2012. Our results confirm human capital investments and job characteristics to be among the main determinants of women’s employment continuity after childbearing. The probability of losing a job increased significantly for mothers in 2012 compared to 2005, probably as a result of the deterioration of labour market conditions during the recession years. Conversely, the probability of leaving a job was not statistically significantly related to the year; family characteristics - the presence of a couple and features of the partner’s job - were key factors in women’s deciding not to return to work after childbearing.

  • The Securitization of the European Migrant Crisis - Evidence From Bulgaria
           and Hungary (2015-2017)

    • Abstract: Conflicts in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Syria over the past fifteen years have produced the largest waves of displaced people and refugees since World War II. As European Union (EU) leaders braced for an influx of thousands of people fleeing from these conflicts, they faced pressures to revisit and modify legal rules that left countries in Southeastern Europe and the Mediterranean unable to cope with a crisis of unprecedented proportions in the twenty-first century. While the logistical challenges of this humanitarian disaster threatened to undermine Southeastern and Mediterranean states’ capacity, multiple terrorist attacks across Europe magnified the security concerns of EU leaders. This paper compares how two of the European Union’s newest member states – Bulgaria and Hungary – have tackled the migrant crisis and assesses the impact of security concerns on their refugee policies. Some of the responses of these countries’ governments were similar – both governments mandated the erection or extension of physical barriers to impede migrants’ entry on their countries’ territory. While the Bulgarian government took cues from the rhetoric and actions of key EU leaders such as Angela Merkel, the Hungarian government continuously antagonized EU leaders and declined to cooperate with their proposed multi-lateral strategies of handling the migrant crisis. Decisions taken by the two governments were, to some extent, dictated by security concerns. The rhetoric of the Hungarian government, however, contained stronger nationalist overtones than that of the Bulgarian government. Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orbán and his right-wing government led an anti-migrant and anti-refugee campaign that sought to exclude foreign nationals due to the patent incompatibility of their cultural values with those of Hungary’s nationals. On the other hand, the rhetoric of Bulgaria’s Prime Minister – Boiko Borisov – was more dualistic and contradictory. His policy statements to the foreign press or at EU summits reflected the general sentiment of the top EU brass, whereas statements made to the Bulgarian media focused more specifically on security concerns and were far more critical of the foreign nationals attempting to enter Bulgaria’s territory. Moreover, the security-focused rhetoric and actions of the government became more strident immediately before and after the Bulgarian presidential elections of November 2016, which led to the resignation of Borisov’s cabinet. Political parties in Bulgaria, including Borisov’s GERB party have increasingly become critical of refugees living in Bulgaria’s admission centers. Borisov’s government even extradited a group of Afghan asylum seekers due to their involvement in a riot at one of the refugee admission centers. This study is based on a content analysis of statements made by Bulgarian and Hungarian government officials and media coverage in several Bulgarian and Hungarian news publications between 2015 and 2017.

  • Impact of Climate Change to Tourism Sector in the Vietnamese Mekong Delta

    • Abstract: Mekong Delta Region of Vietnam is forecasted to have one of world’s most severe impacts from climate change. There is a big knowledge gap in research on climate change impacts on tourism in this area. While climate change’s impacts on agriculture and fisheries have received much attention from authorities and researchers, impacts on tourism have largely been ignored. This paper presents findings from a field study the authors conducted to fill the research gap on climate change’s impact on tourism in Mekong River Delta. The study based on spatial analysis and questionnaires and interviews of local tourism leaders, tourism businesses and tourists discovered that climate change is a real challenge for region’s tourism businesses. Vulnerable tourism businesses in low and flat delta such as Mekong needs more attention and practical actions from international organizations and local entities in the era of climate change threats.
