  • The Study of the History and Development of Ancient Cities around the

    • Authors: Mohammad Qasem Noori
      Abstract: Cities first appeared between 6000 and 5000 B.C., but they were mostly based on Neolithic agrarian society. Later, with the development of the plough, the wheel-cart, the boat, metallic utensils, etc., and the system of watering fields, the Nile, Tigris, Euphrates, and Indus valleys began the production of excess food grains. As a result, a social structure developed in which some social classes, including societies of traders, artisans, and religious leaders, could seize some of the crops that the peasants produced. These groups relocated to urban areas to engage in non-agricultural occupations. Thus, a culture of certain groups with the ability for writing and accounting, as well as knowledge of the solar calendar and bureaucracy, arose in the river basins. There is evidence that the town cult first appeared around 3000 B.C. After this, the ancient urban process stopped for almost 2000 years. Ancient towns experienced eclipses.

    • Authors: Nazifullah Kargar; Zia Rahman Amani
      Abstract: The religion and mythology of any nation cannot be understood apart from its historical context, and mythology represents the cultural background, beliefs, and thoughts of different nations. The relationship between humans and animals, as well as humans and gods, has been of great importance in various myths and legends. Many nations have great value and religious sanctity. The people of India and Egypt worship Gaura as God, and still, the cow is a valuable creature; eating its meat is forbidden and cursing this animal is a crime. This article is devoted to investigating the position and place of the cow in mythology and the reasons for its importance in the folklore of Khorasan and some other nations, including Egypt, China, Greece, India, etc., because whenever one literary work is compared with another, and one of them is evaluated in comparison with the other, they show a deeper a meaningful.

  • “Physical and Psychological Isolation is Like a Barrier”: An Analysis
           Based on a Covid English Development Project

    • Authors: Ruimeng Han
      Abstract: Loneliness and anxiety are one of the well-researched concepts in education. Some educationalists recognise the loneliness and anxiety of students as important issues to consider (Pekrun, 2006; Hawkley & Cacioppo, 2010; Odacı & Kalkan, 2010). Admittedly, with the Covid-19 pandemic and the development of technology, language classrooms present unprecedented loneliness and anxiety, and potential changes in teaching formats, contents and pedagogy. In response to the negative emotional factor that students could encounter in Covid-19, the article, firstly, takes the context of an online course Development Project (DP) in the UK as an entry point. This is followed by introducing and explaining the teachers' measures to cope with loneliness and anxiety based on the DP, examples include discussion boards, images, FLCAS etc. Finally, an attempt will be made to criticize and analyse some points that the researchers did not consider such as the nature of the course itself and teacher anxiety. To sum up, this article may help to think richly about students' anxiety and loneliness in Covid-19 and relief about them.

  • Diagnostic Research of the Most Used Words in Pashto Literary Texts

    • Authors: Tahmina Rahmani
      Abstract: Diagnostic research of the most used words in Pashto literary texts is a significant and valuable subject; to this day, no one has yet conducted research on this subject in Pashto literature which gave me a reasonable motivation to consider research that might satisfy the need of Pashto Literature. It’s important to realize how efficiently it should be conducted in a good manner so that the key points can be depicted throughout the research. Different research has been conducted by various researchers around the world in the most known language, which is the English language; those researchers have done so in order to solve the new learner’s problems. As a result of field research, the obtained data shows that some words have been accepted as academic words in the Pashto language. Due to the limitations of the topic in this study, only 20 words were selected. Therefore, it is clear that this can be the starting point of this research. Completing this task requires a lot of patience and a lot of perseverance, which I want to give as much attention to as possible.

  • Grade Inflation at Saudi Universities Before, During and After the
           Pandemic: A Comparative Study

    • Authors: Reima Al-Jarf
      Abstract: This study investigates grade inflation in 127 language, linguistics, translation, education, and computer courses taught at some Saudi universities before, during and after the Pandemic. Grades obtained from some instructors for courses taught over 8 semesters were analyzed. It was found that between 20% 65% chose a pass/no-grade results, the rest of the students mostly earned A & B grades in Spring 2020 when instruction and assessment were held online compared to students’ grade in Fall 2018, Spring 2018, Fall 2019, and after the Pandemic (in Fall 2020, Spring 2021, Fall 2021, Spring 2022). Grade inflation was the highest in computer courses followed by education courses and was the least in language, linguistics, and translation courses. Grade inflation in Spring 2020 was due to the adjustments mandated by universities to alleviate students’ anxiety caused by the sudden shift to online teaching and assessment. Universities allocated 20% of the course marks to final exams, gave alternatives to a written final and to be lenient in grading. Students had the option to drop the course or have a pass with no-grade result. In Fall 2020, classes were still held online but exams were held on campus. Starting Fall 2021, both instruction and exams were held on campus. Mark distribution and exam requirements went back to normal as before the Pandemic. However, grade inflation continued in many courses even in Spring 2022. The study gives recommendations for maintaining exam reliability, validity, and fairness in emergency and normal situations to achieve the desired learning outcomes.

  • Chinese Citizens' Impression of India and the Influencing Factors: An
           Empirical Study Based on a Survey in 2020

    • Authors: Bowen Qin; Xinli Liang
      Abstract: Impressions towards foreign countries increasingly play an important role in international relations. While much research has been conducted on other countries' impressions of China and China's impressions of European and American countries, little research has been conducted on Chinese citizens' impressions of India, which is also a mega-developing country. By exploring Chinese citizens' impressions and the influencing factors towards India, it is important to enrich both research and foreign policy formulation in the area of international trust. This study uses descriptive analysis and logistic regression modelling to investigate the factors influencing Chinese citizen's impressions of India through the framework of social identity, political efficacy, political participation, media socialisation, and intergroup contact, based on data from the India sub-subject of the public questionnaire survey conducted by the 2020 ‘Chinese View of the European Union (EU)’ project. The study's findings show that patriotic tendencies are the most influential factor in Chinese citizens' impressions of India. The study results show that variables such as patriotic tendencies, social satisfaction, frequency of internet use, and religious acceptance strongly influence Chinese citizens' impressions of India. In contrast, the hypotheses of some theoretical variables need to be further confirmed as Chinese citizens' impressions of India are slightly lower than those of other large countries such as the US, Japan, and Russia.

  • Promotion of China's Internet Application Adaptation to Aging Policy

    • Authors: XINGYAN HUANg
      Abstract: In recent years, the number of elderly people in China has grown rapidly, but there are still many elderly people who do not have access to the Internet or use smartphones. It is difficult for them to fully enjoy the convenience brought by intelligent services and to integrate into the information society. The purpose of this paper is to assess the current status of Internet application aging in China and explore further development strategies. Based on the public policy analysis method, the paper starts from the current situation of promoting the aging of Internet application products in China, and conducts research from three aspects: the concept of Internet application aging, the current situation of promotion, and the recommendations, and explores the research on Internet application adaptation in China. Through research, it is found that although China's Internet aging policy has achieved many results in promotion, there are also some problems, such as the lack of the perspective of the elderly, the low enthusiasm of enterprises, and the lack of government supervision. Therefore, it is necessary to further strengthen technological innovation, strengthen multi-party cooperation, pay more attention to the needs of the elderly, and continuously improve the humanization and aging-appropriate level of Internet applications, so as to help the elderly better adapt to and use intelligent services. The research results can provide some suggestions for the promotion and improvement of the Internet application aging policy.

  • Impacts of the COVID-19 Pandemic on Artisanal Fisheries and Education in
           The Gambia

    • Authors: Maiyai Hochiemy; Momodou Faal, Alhagie Hydara, Kam Tang
      Abstract: The Gambia is one of the least developed countries in sub-Sahara Africa. In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, the Gambian government implemented a lockdown and various restrictions in 2020, but the impacts on Gambians’ livelihood remained unclear. With the gradual relaxation of the lockdown and restrictions, we were able to conduct the first questionnaire surveys to interview 140 fishermen, 140 fishmongers and 80 customers in the artisanal fisheries sector, and 150 students (grade 9-12) and 14 teachers in the education sector, to assess the impact of the pandemic on their socio-economic and personal well-being. Both fishermen and fishmongers experienced a drop in sales, whereas customers had to pay more during the pandemic. Illegal fishing, lack of policy and regulations and price hikes were among the main concerns for the artisanal fisheries sector, although the respondents did not feel a change in their personal well-being due to the pandemic. Students and teachers did not have the necessary training or resources to conduct remote learning during the pandemic, and both attendance and academic performance declined as a result. Access to the internet and learning materials was very limited, and 10% of the students ceased learning activities altogether. 19% of students and 50% of teachers experienced poor mental health during the pandemic. The majority of the students were concerned about the impact of the pandemic on their education, whereas most teachers were concerned about their finances and psychological conditions. Nearly a quarter of the students relied on unofficial channels to learn about the pandemic, making them susceptible to misinformation. To safeguard Gambian’s well-being against future pandemics or similar large-scale disruptions, we recommend better fishery monitoring and policy enforcement, more fish storage facilities, improving digital learning capacity, providing mental health care in schools, and devising effective communication campaigns about the pandemic.

  • The Analysis of Application Prospect and Sustainable Mode of Regional
           Resources in the Context of Tibetan Medicine Culture

    • Authors: Haonan Fang
      Abstract: At present, the Tibetan medicine culture formed by Tibetan medicine and Tibetan Buddhism has a state of aphasia in the global multicultural context. Furthermore, the medicinal resources bred in the special geographical location of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau are not only the important material basis for the formation and development of Tibetan medicine culture but also provide potential value for modern drug discovery and medical research. Based on the existing research texts and scientific research data, this paper constructs the SPS sustainable development framework by combing the general situation of the medicinal resource and industry in the Qinghai-Tibet plateau, the background, and the prospect of the formation of Tibetan medicine culture, which provides the basic theoretical research and relevant countermeasures for the sustainable development and resource reuse of Tibetan medicine in the context of Tibetan medicine culture. It is meaningful that the research on the cultural propaganda of Tibetan medicine's national idea and medicinal value has found that the cultural industry code and the resource application potential in the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau region will have prominent geo-economic benefits in the near future, especially in the moment when the global epidemic is suddenly spreading.

    • Authors: Mutiawati Mandaka; Wiendu Nuryanti , Dyah Titisari W
      Abstract: Lasem is a small town that has the potential to be a tourist destination. Located on the northern coast of Java, Lasem has three types of landscapes, namely coastal landscapes, topographical landscapes, and mountainous landscapes. The purpose of this paper is to explore the potential of tourist objects that can be developed for tourists who have an interest in visiting Lasem. The method used is descriptive qualitative with field observations and direct interviews with visitors. There are several potential tourist objects that have been explored, such as potential natural attractions, potential cultural attractions, potential social attractions, and potential attractions that are built. The results of this study are the potential natural attractions obtained from the Lasem city landscape, such as the Lasem riverbank, Caruban beach tourism, Dasun, Karangjahe, Binangun, and Watu Layar. Potential cultural attractions such as ancient buildings are the result of cultural products in the past. The products of these buildings include places of worship (three ancient pagodas, Ratanava Arama monastery, Jami' mosque, etc.) and houses with Chinese, Indies, and Javanese architecture. In addition, there is the potential of Lasem batik, which can be featured as a product of Lasem culture and the Lasem carnival festival. For potential social appeal, several community activities can be found in Lasem, namely New Year celebrations and Cap Go Meh, Ceng Beng celebrations, and others. While the potential attraction that was built is the Jami' mosque complex, where in it there is the main building, pawestren, porch, tomb complex, additional foyer, and also the Nusantara museum. Of the three existing landscapes, the topographical landscape that has the most potential is visited because, in this landscape, there is potential for cultural attraction, the potential for social attraction, and potential for an attraction that is built.

  • Challenges Faced by Graduate Teachers in Developing Students’
           Competencies in Bukoba Municipality in Kagera Region, Tanzania

    • Authors: Paulina Musau; Clara Rupia
      Abstract: The purpose of this study was to assess challenges faced by graduate teachers in developing student competencies in Bukoba Municipality in Kagera Region, Tanzania. The study employed the survey design taking a population of 100 graduates from 27 secondary schools and a sample size of 81 graduate teachers. These were selected using purposive sampling. The data were collected using a questionnaire, interview, and structured observation methods. Quantitative data from the questionnaire were analyzed using descriptive statistics with the help of SPSS, and qualitative data were analyzed using a thematic approach. This was then presented in a table, using frequencies and percentages for quantitative data and quotes for qualitative data. The findings from the study show that graduate teachers lacked teaching aids and were not satisfied with the learning environment, especially in most of the ward schools. It was also evident that these graduate teachers indicated a lack of in-service training to improve their skills as a major setback when it comes to developing students’ competencies since they lacked opportunities to upgrade their skills on CBC. Generally, the study concludes that teachers are facing a lot of challenges while developing student competencies, such as an acute shortage of teaching and learning materials which hinders effective implementation of the curriculum. However, it recommends in-service training for teachers, supporting teachers with materials needed for the implementation of CBC, as well as improving the teaching and learning environment to ensure graduate teachers develop learners’ competencies fully.

  • “Traditional” Media is Used to Focus on the Construction of Gender
           Cognition of Middle School Students in Mainland China

    • Authors: Kaimeng Xue
      Abstract: With the arrival of the era of disenchantment described by the famous sociologist Weber, our human society has stepped into a new era, but some of the social characteristics in this era all reflect the reflection and high self-reflection of this era. One of the most expressive things is the collision of multiple values and epistemological systems, which is called the “war of the gods”. This will encourage people to grasp the mutual influence and internal causal connection of various factors in a specific situation from the rationalization process in a broad sense. And establish a kind of self-constructed idealized knowledge, emphasizing the binary construction of understanding, communication, and trust factors in the process of socialization. Therefore, if too much epistemological self-disturbance is excluded, the more interesting manifestation is that the traditional media construction process of gender cognition of middle school students is actually a unilateral and passive self-construction mode. Especially for Chinese mainland middle school students, it has greater value and will reflect the difference in cognitive mode; the difference itself is due to a series of social policies, school policy, and the pressure of the college entrance examination, it is difficult to strengthen through self connection and social network, and more tend to be strengthened in the so-called correct knowledge in school. Therefore, the influence of cognition in schools is more single or monotonous, without the existence of many different perceptions in society. At least, the influence of this point on the research can be excluded to a large extent. The purpose of this study is to have a more intuitive understanding of the intuitive impact of traditional media on middle school students in the current environment, where it is extremely luxurious and difficult to completely eliminate or cut off such connections. The results of the tracking interviews were used to standardize the study.

  • Analysis of Characteristics of Cooperation Network of Smart Agriculture
           Technology Companies: China as an Example

    • Authors: Ke Wang
      Abstract: The development of new technology and the Internet has provided opportunities for the development of smart agriculture, but at present, the development of smart agriculture is still in the primary stage and faces many urgent technical problems, so most companies enhance their technological innovation capabilities through cooperation with other companies. This paper analyzes the characteristics of cooperation networks of smart agriculture technology companies and the differences in different stages by collecting companies with which smart agriculture technology companies have cooperation relationships and applying social network analysis. The results show that there are few cooperative relationships between smart agriculture technology companies, mostly with large information technology companies (e.g., Huawei and Alibaba), research institutes, and other non-agricultural companies.
