  • Functions and Sales Arguments in Spanish Advertising. A Study on Female
           Representation

    • Authors: Silvia Vega Saldaña, Daniel Barredo, Carmen Lasso de Vega, Ana Merchán Clavellino
      First page: 1
      Abstract: Advertising is responsible for developing part of the contemporary imaginaries, which tend to be imposed as referential frameworks, especially for strategic groups such as those embodied by young people. In this regard, in the following article we present the results of a study in which we evaluated 1520 images published in advertisements from the main Spanish high-end women's magazines (Cosmopolitan, Elle, Glamor, Telva and Vogue). The results in these publications highlight the presence of a restrictive body type for women, which imposes canons of beauty where thinness and slenderness prevail, and to which physical qualities are associated such as white ethnicity, light eyes tonalities, dark or light hair with a length between the shoulders and the chest, a palpable youth and extreme corporal perfection. And also, a pattern that characterizes women devoid of intellectual roles and arguments to purchase and sell, which is an example of symbolic power and objectification of the female body.

  • Book Review: Innovation and Culture in Public Services-The Case of
           Independent Living-By Steven Demello & Peder Furseth, 2016

    • Authors: Mohamad Buheji
      First page: 9
      Abstract: Public service is very important for any society development. One can see the role of the mature governments innovation in creating what is called developed and developing nations. Therefore, innovation and management of change experts see that this innovation starts with addressing cultural dynamical needs. The scope of this dynamic need or challenge that was defined by Demello and Furseth (2016) is the capacity to support “Independent Living”. This innovation requires also a deep understanding the essence of public service development needs through linking the keywords that reflects the standard of living with the changes in demographics and socio-economic challenges.“Innovation and Culture in Public Sector” targets to address a growing trend toward innovation in public services and thus to establish specific points of integration between public and private entities that would ensure unique delivered outcomes. The book aims to improve the ability to innovate successfully in large-scale public/private endeavors that would create governments that targets to create inspiration waves for its targeted communities, Buheji (2016).

  • The Practice Degree of Democratic Behaviors of Male and Female Principals
           at the Public Basic Schools in Their Tasks Performance in Bani Obeid
           District, from the Standpoints of Their Teachers

    • Authors: Mufadi Al- Momani, Mahmoud Hasan Ajlouni
      First page: 12
      Abstract: The study aimed to identify the practice degree of democratic behaviors of male and female principals at the public basic schools in their tasks performance at Bani Obeid district, from the standpoints of their teachers. A questionnaire prepared by Abu-Hayja' in (2005) was developed to achieve this goal, and it consist of (46) items in its final version. The study populations consist of all male and female teachers at the public basic schools in Bani Obeid district, and (560) of those were selected as the study sample, in order to reach the objectives. For data analysis, the arithmetic means and standard deviations of the responses were calculated about the practice degree of democratic behaviors by their teachers, where ANOVA and MANOVA were used, and then they were statistically processed using SPSS. The study results showed the existence of statistically significant differences at the significance level of (α=0.05) between the subjects estimates of the practice degree of democratic behaviors of basic schools principals in their tasks performance that could be attributed to the teacher's sex and years of experience variables. The results also showed a non-existence of statistically significant differences at level (α=0.05) between the arithmetic means related to the practice degree, as a whole that could be attributed to the variables of qualification, experience, and sex.

  • Policy-based Abstention: An Application to Brazil’s 2002
           Presidential Election

    • Authors: Gabriel Katz
      First page: 28
      Abstract: This paper implements a unified model of individual abstention and vote choice, applying it to analyze policy-based alienation and indifference in Brazil’s historical 2002 presidential election. The results indicate that both alienation and indifference have a negative impact on turnout, with indifference contributing slightly more to voter abstention. Also, the determinants of alienation and indifference differ considerably, the former being determined by structural factors such as voters’ information and perceived efficacy levels, while the latter was related to short-term aspects such as parties’ mobilization efforts. More importantly, the evidence shows that while alienation and indifference are strongly influenced by attitudinal and protest variables, they are also affected by citizens’ evaluation of candidates’ ideological locations. The main conclusion is that abstention in Brazil’s 2002 election had a policy-driven component and that spatial considerations played a substantive role in citizens’ electoral behavior, a fact that has been largely overlooked in previous research on the determinants of abstention in Latin America.

  • A Proposed Credit Risk Assessment for People at the Bottom of the Social
           Pyramid in Cali, Colombia

    • Authors: Juan David Rivera Acevedo, Lina Martínez
      First page: 41
      Abstract: The informal economy accounts for half of the economic activity in Colombia. Street vending is a major part of the informal sector. In the context of a rapid urbanization due to internal conflicts, low skilled workers find a last resort for income generation as street vendors. Even though studies have revealed that street vendors can have high profits, they usually remain poor. A primary reason is their continuous indebtedness outside the regulated financial market. This paper proposes a comprehensive questionnaire survey on the socioeconomic profile of street vendors. This tool can be used to assess the individual credit risk and incentivize the financial inclusion of the poor. It can also be used for evaluation processes by the government or impact investors.

  • Book Review: Innovation in Developing and Transition Countries - New
           Horizons in Regional Science Series

    • Authors: Mohamad Buheji, Dunya Ahmed
      First page: 55
      Abstract: The gap between developed countries and developing countries are increasing, rather than decreasing as it was hoped and expected in the beginning of the century. This gap is clearly reflected in the Global Innovation Index 2017. Countries in transition or in emerging economies are taking long time to figure out how to deal with innovation as currency and source of differentiation. (Buheji, 2018a).In this review, the innovation of developing countries and those in transitions is reviewed closely through the work of Tsvetkova et. al (2017). A close recommendation is set in the conclusion of this paper about future coming work that would help developed the efforts of the concerned academics, practitioners, innovation advocates and decision makers. width=

  • Africa’s Youth Unemployment Challenge and the Pursuit of Soft Skills
           Development by University Students

    • Authors: Joseph Kweku Assan, Violette Hilda Nalutaaya
      First page: 58
      Abstract: This paper seeks to address the growing challenge of youth employment in Kenya. The study explores how the provision and acquisition of soft skills by university students influence their employability in the current labour market in Kenya. The objective of the paper is to examine the current training programs in soft skills development being offered to university students and the extent to which they enhance the ability of the participants to obtain employment. We use a case study approach to ascertain the opportunities provided by the Employment Training Program which offers mentoring and coaching to young people in key soft and employment skills as they transition from tertiary institutions into the workforce. The paper triangulates quantitative and qualitative methodologies that draw on a pre-training survey, key informant interviews, a post training survey and focus group discussions to inform the study. The research shows that addressing the information gap for job opportunities can help reduce youth unemployment. The development of entrepreneurship, interpersonal skills, public relations and online jobs search skills are amongst the observed training gaps. The findings of the study further indicate that employers are interested in young people who are consistent, reliable, have good communication and presentation skills as well as realistic career expectations. The study concludes that whilst several students seem keen on obtaining soft skills, some are unable to capitalize on the acquisition of such skills to enhance their employment prospects. The paper recommends incorporating employability programs into the Kenyan educational curriculum at the secondary and tertiary levels to address the vicious cycle of unemployment.

  • A Cultural Interpretation of the Bodies of Marginalized People in
           Welty’s - A Curtain of Green and Other Stories

    • Authors: Liu Liu, Yu Sun
      First page: 72
      Abstract: A Curtain of Green and Other Stories is a collection of short stories written by Southern American writer Eudora Welty. In the story collection, Welty portrays life and people in Mississippi in the first half of the 20th century, including quite a few marginalized people. Being a photographer as well, Welty has a unique vision for body expression. This essay tries to make an analysis of the body narration of two types of marginalized people in A Curtain of Green and Other Stories, including physically disabled people and black people. By analyzing the body culture in Welty’s works, this essay tries to give a vivid picture of Southern marginalized people’s daily existence, probe into the social circumstances of Southern America in early 20th century, and find a new perspective to interpret Southern American culture.

  • Environmental Regulations and Trade Patterns in Hazardous Waste:
           Facility-level Analysis

    • Authors: Aleksandra Falkowska
      First page: 78
      Abstract: This paper offers a fresh look at the pollution haven hypothesis (PHH) in the context of the waste management industry. Unlike previous research examining trade in waste products, the present study distinguishes between waste destined for final disposal and waste destined for recovery. Furthermore, it combines very disaggregated data with the highly flexible mixed logit model and a reliable measure of environmental policy stringency. Including all those elements in one analysis allowed for the uncovering of the dramatic differences in the reactions of waste generators to the environmental policy stringency of the destination country, depending on the treatment option their waste is slated for. Although there is no evidence confirming the PHH, a significant pollution haven effect has been found. This effect is apparent in the case of waste destined for final disposal. In contrast, facilities exporting waste for recovery are often attracted by the stringency of environmental policy.
