  • Examining the Effectiveness of Simulated Interpreting Projects:
           Students’ Perspectives

    • Abstract: In recent decades, bridging the gap between university-based interpreting teaching and industry needs has been increasingly important as an emerging area of interpreter education and training. Many interpreter educators and practitioners have introduced authentic interpreting practices (e.g. mock conference, role-play, conference observation, field training) into their classrooms and received positive feedback from student interpreters. This study investigates the use of simulated interpreting projects, which have been designed by the interpreter trainer to make student interpreters’ learning more stimulating and effective. Findings from this empirical study have demonstrated that the simulated interpreting projects not only enhanced student interpreters’ skills for and knowledge about the interpreting profession, but also cultivated their vocational skills and investigation capabilities which are crucial for many other professions. This research contributes to the current understanding of enhancing student interpreters’ learning experience via real-life activities. It introduces a fresh perspective for designing an investigative learning model for student interpreters. It also has practical implications for interpreting pedagogy, offering theoretical and empirical support for the changing attitudes and approaches in interpreter education and training.

  • Business Taxation in an Emerging Economy: Analysing Corporate Tax

    • Abstract: This paper estimates the incidence of corporate taxes in an emerging economy –India- using the data from 5,666 business firms listed in the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) and the National Stock Exchange of India (NSE) for the period 2000-15. Using the dynamic panel models, we find that capital bear the burden of corporate taxation relatively more than the labour. Our findings highlight that the effective tax rate is higher for the small corporate firms than the gigantic firms. The tax policy implications for strengthening the wage bargaining frameworks is insignificant as we found the wage determination in India is mostly outside the purview of fiscal policy practices. Further research is required to understand whether less incidence of corporate taxation on wages in India is due to base erosion and profit shifting.

  • Evolution of the Common Belief That “Things Have Costs”:
           Psychological Perspective

    • Abstract: The paper examines critically the current method of teaching one of the core topics in Introductory Economics. The area of my criticism of the traditional Production Costs theory as it had been currently taught in many universities across the world is that it inevitably creates in the minds of beginning students a false perception that “things have costs”. The Economic Way of Thinking as the alternative approach to the traditional way of teaching Introductory Economics disarms this popular idea and affirms that “only actions have costs”. The discussion is done in the form of dialogue between the author and a reader.

  • Extrinsic Factors Influencing Internal Auditors’ Effectiveness in
           Jordanian Public Sector

    • Abstract: This study focuses on the extrinsic factors, namely, top management support, complexity, independence, and internal audit department’s size that are out of internal auditors' control affecting their effectiveness in the Jordanian public sector. The current study also tries to improve understanding of the extrinsic factors affecting internal auditors’ ability to achieve the assigned goals in order to highlight internal auditors’ effectiveness. Resource-based and agency theories were used in developing the research model. Two sets of questionnaires were distributed among the financial managers and internal audit managers. The results reveal that top management support, independence, and the size of internal audit department play a significant and positive role on the effectiveness of internal auditors, whereas complexity of the task has been found to make a negative impact on the level of their performance. Given the significance of the public sector within the Jordanian economy, the findings are valuable for the internal audit function, regulators, and decision-makers in proposing new legislation and regulations of an internal audit function. Future studies may look into other factors that may restrict internal audit performance, such as organizational culture and pay satisfaction.

  • Historical Documentary Gender Identities in Goumenissa of Greece
           Multimodal Research Material

    • Abstract: The subject of this research proposal concerns the gender representations of women in the border town of Goumenissa, a regional unit of Kilkis in Greece, as these representations are constructed on their speech. Goumenissa has been a meeting place of different origin communities, such as local, Pontiac and east Rumelia populations, after the Turco-Greek exchange of populations in Greek national history during the 1920s.The aim of this on-site research is to investigate and map out the status of the refugee and local women of Goumenissa, in years of turbulence and intensity. The research questions concern three basic thematic units: House working - Working outside, the house - Education/family constraints. What is their insight into family relationships, tradition, education and participation in production' How did they define themselves and were defined by others throughout the historical and social conditions' What kind of imprints did these conditions leave on them' How do they continue today' This on-site historical research was based on individual or group interviews and on professional filmmaking in the area of Goumenissa by the two educators Kiouzepi & Kavallari. The outcome-deliverable has been a historical documentary based on the primary original material coming from the women’s interviews that could be used as a multimodal material within an interdisciplinary approach in teaching social subjects. The theoretical axes of the research are the history of gaze, the cultural studies, the socio-semiotics and the expansion of sources in the local and oral historiography.

  • Service Use Behaviors, Factors and Integrated Marketing Communications
           Strategies Which Affected the Choice of Personal Loan Service of Bank
           Customers in Thailand

    • Abstract: This research was aimed to study service use behaviors in personal loan service of bank customers in Thailand, to analyze factors and integrated marketing communications strategies which affected the choice of personal loan service of bank customers in Thailand. This is a mixed-method research study in which the survey was done with 4000 bank customers who used personal loan service of United Overseas Bank (UOB) and Siam Commercial Bank (SCB) as well as executive panels whereas the qualitative data was collected through interviews with 20 marketing communications staff members of UOB PLC and SCB PLC. The statistical methods were mean score, standard deviation and factor analysis.The survey findings about the behaviors of personal loan service showed that the majority of bank customers have been customers for about 5 years with personal loan credit of between 80,001 and 1,000,000 Baht. They chose to use personal loan service because of the suggestions by bank staff members. The people who influenced their choice the most were themselves. The reason why they chose personal loan service was because the banks had a good image and they were well-known. The average personal loan service behavior was at a high level (=4.31, S.D.=0.53). The results from factor analysis showed that there were 6 independent factors which affected the choice of personal loan service of bank customers in Thailand. The correlations were 0.577-0.981, or at a high level. These 6 factors have the predictive ability of 83.333% and the error is 16.667. The factors could be ranked according to the influence which affected the choice of personal loan service as follows: 1) Marketing through special events, 2) Direct marketing, 3) Sales communications, 4) Sales through staff members, 5) Publicity, 6) Advertisements. The equation for the predictive ability and the indicator is as follows: Y= 0.981(Factor1) + 0.577(Factor 2) + 0.812(Factor 3) + 0.914(Factor 4) + 0.942(Factor 5) + 0.934(Factor 6).The findings from the marketing staff members from those banks through integrated marketing strategies showed that “Above the Line” strategy was used when the banks put up big boards for outdoor display. However, the banks should have more media such as TV or radio spots to attract the attention of the audience. The banks should support TV programs so that customers want to know more about the banks or the products of the banks and that the banks will get more trust from the customers. Regarding the “Below the Line” strategy, the banks should set up booths in department stores to give information to customers and to offer gifts to customers who used the service. There should be more promotional activities and the banks should offer a point system so that customers can collect points and redeem points with rewards or services or discounts to the customers. The banks should have skilled and experienced staff members who can tell about personal loan service so that the customers will get the right information. Moreover, the banks should engage in community activities or local and national events such as Loy Krathong Day or New Year Day in order to attract more customers.

  • Optimal Pricing and Capacity Under Well-Defined and Well-Known
           Deterministic Demand Fluctuations

    • Abstract: Fluctuations in demand require diverse considerations with respect to planned capacity. At peak periods, decreased capacity may result in supply shortages and   thus in lower revenues and unachievable profits.  In contrast, smaller capacity at off-peak periods reduces the substantial costs of large and unutilized capacity.  The questions to be addressed ask (i) what the optimal pricing policies are at peak and off-peak periods; (ii) what the optimal capacity is for profit maximization of the supplier; and furthermore (iii) how the shifting of demands from peak to off-peak periods may reduce fluctuation and impact profits.The present paper develops a model that compares two cases. In Case 1 it is not possible to transfer partial demand from a peak period to an off-peak period, while in Case 2 it is possible to do so.The comparison between the cases illustrates various results, some of which are less intuitive than others. For instance, a larger gap between the peak and off-peak periods leads to a larger optimal capacity in Case 1 than in Case 2. However, a smaller gap presents a different picture. When there is less willingness to switch demand between the periods, the capacity of Case 2 is larger than that of Case 1.

  • The Concept of Authentic and Inauthentic Existence in the Philosophy of
           Martin Heidegger: The ‘Quarrel’ of Communitarians and Libertarians

    • Abstract: The everyday use of the term ‘authenticity’ tends to mean ‘real’, ‘genuine’ or ‘true’, and ‘inauthentic’ as ‘fake’, ‘fraud’ or ‘impostor’. These terms are more value-judgments with something inherently better than ‘inauthentic’.The idea of authentic wishes to liberate the individuals from the constraints of their own socio-historical limitations; and to establish being as limitless potential, where we are free to be whatever we want,unconstrained by the values of instrumental or calculative thought prized by social exigencies and ideologies. It means that we have to use our potentialities as free Beings to overcome unfavourable circumstances,fight against, or protest against the ugly situation, but as ‘authentic-being, we at the same time ‘inherit and choose’ our own possibilities. So in transcending our socio-historical condition,our aim should be to be free from constraints, free from ‘the-they’ and be true to who we are.This paper holds brief for the Libertariansand liberals and supports the view that individual choice is important. But then, the community is indispensable in defining and shaping individuals in the light of communitarians.

  • The Implication of Corruption on Economic Progress of Nigeria

    • Abstract: The issue of corruption is a universal challenge and has denied many emerging economies good business opportunities. This study makes use of the position of Nigeria in the country corruption ranking captured by Transparency International and the rate of corruption prevailing in the country to assess the degree of influence corruption has on economic growth of the country. The study employs secondary form of data obtained from World Bank Development Indicators and Transparency International which cover a period from 2008 to 2018. The regression result indicates that the country corruption ranking has a significant negative influence on economic growth in Nigeria while the rate of corruption prevailing in the country has a significant positive impact on economic growth in the country. The two results are significant and so the study concludes that the image of the country has been tarnished globally due to the high level of corruption in Nigeria and as internationally perceived. As a result, important investment opportunities elude the country even though the economy is growing with the high rate of corruption prevailing in the country. The study thus, recommends among others that the religious leaders and non-governmental organizations should assist in curbing the menace of corruption by inculcating moral values in the young generation who should grow up to say no to corruption and its attractions. This will go a long way to salvage the future of this great nation.

  • The Memory of the French Centurions: Asia-Europe Connections in the Tragic
           Memory of Pierre Schoendoerffer’s Films

    • Abstract: Inspired by Pierre Nora and Maurice Halbwachs, who were French researchers of the mechanism of the memory, and Jean Larteguy, the novelist who gave a voice to the defeated French colonial soldiers, this essay explores the passage of the perilous memories of the veterans of the French Far East Expeditionary Corps, which fought in Indochina between 1945 and 1954, based on the regenerative memory of the war and of Asia and on their memories of themselves. The defeat at Dien Bien Phu resulted in the stigma of a dangerous and traumatic memory. Producers of image and rhetorical discourse, such as the French filmmaker Pierre Schoendoerffer, have undertaken acts of image making through films that transformed the humiliating defeat into a grand and redemptive tragedy. For Schoendoerffer, these acts of filmmaking constituted an unsettling and regenerative experience for both sides, creating a film production of transcultural memories connecting Asia and France.
