  • A STUDY OF PERCEIVED STRESS AND HEALTH COMPLAINTS AMONG RETIREES AND
           NON-RETIREES

    • Authors: Shallu Sansanwal
      Abstract: Retirees (n = 50) and non-retirees (n = 50) with an age range between 58 to 65 years were selected from two cities, Chandigarh and Karnal (India), and their responses were recorded through an interview schedule regarding their age, marital status, job, retirement, income and their viewpoint on retirement. Two scales i.e., Perceived Stress Scale, PSS and Adult Health Checklist, AHC were applied. Three hypotheses were tested and the first one relates to expected difference between retirees and non-retirees on their perceived stress. Percentage distribution of stress experienced by retirees and non-retirees showed that 22% of the retirees found retirement as a stressful event in comparison to 12% of the non-retirees. The student’s t-values revealed that difference between the perceived stress in retirees and non-retirees are highly significant (t =2.660, p<0.01). The second hypothesis that retirees and non-retirees are expected to differ on health complaints. Percentage distribution of responses of the sample revealed that 50% of the non-retirees self-rated their health to be as good as compared to 44 % of the retirees and 24% of the retirees reported their health to be excellent as compared to 20% of the non-retirees. Mean scores of retirees (17.2) in Adult Health Checklist are significantly higher than that of non-retirees (13.92). The third hypothesis is that perceived stress is positively correlated to health complaints in retirees and statistical analysis of the obtained results of significant positive correlation between perceived stress and health complaints in retirees supported this hypothesis. It can be concluded from these observations that retired life is stressful and leads to increased health complaint.

  • Womanist Tenets in Selected Novels of Chika Unigwe and Terry Mcmillan

    • Authors: Dr. Iyabo Falode, Prof. Ayobami Kehinde
      Pages: 01 - 11
      Abstract: In this paper, the deployment of womanist tenets in Chika Unigwe's On Black Sisters' Street (2009) and Terry McMillan's Disappearing Acts (1989) was examined with a view to critique the convergences and divergences in both novelists' utilisation of womanist tenets. Both novels were subjected to comparative and critical textual analyses employing womanist tenets including female bonding, family centredness, gender complementariness and motherhood. In both novels, four female characters were used to appropriate the womanist tenet of female bonding. In Unigwe's novel, they were depicted to seek greener pastures, but in McMillan's novel, they were portrayed to be economically independent. All the female characters realise that it is better to live with their male counterparts than living alone. This foregrounds the womanist tenet of male complementariness. It is shown that a collaboration among family members is the only panacea to societal ills and that motherhood must be cherished by women; as it is not seen as a burden. However, parents must collectively raise their children to achieve a balanced physical and psychological worldview. Both novels are stuffed with relevant womanist doctrines. Therefore, Womanism is a quintessential theoretical tool for expressing women's plight and exploits in African and African American novels.

The study sample consisted of (38) faculty members working in Jordanian universities. To achieve the study objectives, a questionnaire was used. The study results showed that the level of assessment problems faced by faculty members at Fine Arts Faculties in Jordan during Covid-19 was high. It also revealed statistically significant differences in the level of assessment problems faced by faculty members at Fine Arts Faculties in Jordan during Covid-19 in light of experience, in favor of the least experience, while there were no statistically significant differences in the level of assessment problems faced by faculty members at Fine Arts Faculties in Jordan during Covid-19 in light of gender and university type.
