In order to address the objectives of the study, a descriptive survey method was employed. The population of the study were 266 teachers and 12 principals. From this number of population, 141 teachers and 12 principals were used as a sample using simple random and comprehensive sampling techniques respectively. Data collected from these respondents was analyzed and interpreted using Percentage, one sample t-test, weighted mean and mean ranking. The finding revealed that,  among instructional leadership functions, instructional leaders’ role in  communicating school goals, supervision and evaluation of instruction, monitoring of school progress, protection of instructional time, maintaining high visibility, are promoting professional development seemed at a level near to average. Whereas, coordination of the curriculum, providing incentive for teachers, and incentive for students were significantly low performed.

  • The architectural network for protein secondary structure prediction

    • Authors: Anindya Sundar Panja, Shiboprosad Mandal, Bidyut Bandyopadhyay, Smarajit Maity
      Abstract: Over the past 25 years, the accuracy of proteins secondary structure prediction has improved substantially. Recently evolutionary information taken from the deviation of proteins in some structural family have again enhance prediction accuracy for all these  residues predicted correctly is in one of the three sates helix, strands and others . The new methods developed over the past few years may be interesting in context of improvements which is achieved through combination of the existing methods. Evolutionary divergences profile posses’ adequate information to improve protein secondary structure prediction accuracy. These profiles can also able to correctly predict long stretches of identical residues in other secondary structure. This sequence structure relationship may help to help to developed tool which can efficiently predict the protein secondary structure from its amino acid sequence.

At the same time, there is an increase in accounting omissions and malpractices of ethics both in the public and in private sector of Greece. These undoubtedly contributed to massive unemployment, high poverty rate, crime and other social ills experienced in the country. This motivated the study on restructuring accounting education by devising a new educational framework that can be applied to Greek universities and colleges with the purpose of preparing finest and ethical professionals. Data was collected through interviews and questionnaires administered to accounting professors and accounting professionals in Greece. The study revealed that accountancy program of Greek universities as currently structured is outdated and inappropriate in terms of helping graduates acquire the skills and competencies needed in the real world. In addition, both professors and professionals recognized many ethical lessons learnt from the global financial crisis.

  • A Study of the Perceptions Held by Information Technology Professionals in
           Relation to the Maturity, Value, and Practical Deployment of Big Data
           Solutions

    • Authors: Damon Andrick Runion
      Abstract: This research study investigated relationships between an information technology (IT) professional's self-assigned understanding of big data and their assessment of the maturity, value, hype, and future trends of big data.  The study also examined if there was any relationship between an IT professional's understanding of big data and the position they occupy professionally.   The study consisted of a twenty question survey.  Research findings indicate that IT professionals are still becoming familiar with big data and related technologies.  The results supported rejecting two of the five hypotheses.  The study produced evidence that there is a relationship between an IT professional's level of big data understanding and their expectation that there will be an increase in technological developments related to big data in the near future.
