  • E-Government 4.0: Managing APIs as Facilitators for Digital Transformation

    • Authors: Denis Trček
      Pages: 1 - 1
      Abstract: Digital transformation is, among others, notably driven by servitization, and consequently, IT artifacts called Application Programming Interfaces (APIs), together with disruptive technologies and innovations. In order to set up proper policies, the understanding of the above factors is essential, including their influences on value adding chains. This paper therefore provides an analysis of APIs developments together with their impacts on digital transformation. As they can affect organizations and even national economies at strategic level, appropriate management from a systemic perspective is justified, including e-Government initiatives. Further, APIs cannot be treated without their relations to disruptive technologies, innovations and value chains. Therefore, the advancements of theoretical understanding of evolution of value chains, and practical directions for e-government initiatives are given in this paper. In addition, an archetype model is developed that provides a basis for further research efforts in the area.   Received: 7 October 2021 / Accepted: 29 November 2021 / Published: 3 January 2022

  • Study Abroad and Student Exchange Experiences of International Students:
           The Sociocultural and Psychological Racism Perspective

    • Authors: Luis M. Dos Santos
      Pages: 15 - 15
      Abstract: Malaysian students like to study abroad and experience the international exchanging programmes during their university voyage. Due to the technology and entertainment developments, South Korea is one of the popular education destinations for many international students, particularly Malaysian students. Based on the Sociocultural and Psychological-Racism perspective, this study's purpose focused on describing their challenges, academic experiences, and living experiences in South Korea. The results indicated that Chinese-Malaysian students experienced significant negative experiences, including discrimination based on their place of origin, cultural characteristics and social behaviours, and special background and status as non-traditional students. Although Malaysia and South Korea share similar East Asian practice, all participants regretted their study abroad experiences in South Korea. The findings of this study will contribute to the knowledge about the study abroad experiences of Malaysian students, overseas learning experiences, managerial developments of international students’ services, and the governmental policies for global views for the South Korean communities.   Received: 6 August 2021 / Accepted: 7 October 2021 / Published: 3 January 2022

  • Optimization of Credit Activity of a Commercial Bank Based on a Parametric
           Model

    • Authors: Mark Gorskiy, Andrey Rudakov, Alexander Yemelyanov
      Pages: 28 - 28
      Abstract: In the past few decades, a line of research focusing on the financial portfolios of banking structures has been actively developed in the world’s economic science. The interest in deposit-and-loan portfolios is caused by the rapid growth of both the banking sector and the entire capital market in the world. This paper presents empirical research in the field of analysis of the credit and investment activities of a commercial bank with an extended set of criteria. The team of authors considered a certain approach to parametric modelling of the optimal banking portfolio taking into account unregulated exogenous (macroeconomic) and endogenous (set by the bank) parameters that affect its structure and composition. As part of the proposed method, a list of monitored parameters of the banking portfolio, which was developed due to financial stability and reliability indicators, was compiled. Accordingly, based on calculations with a modified parametric model and assessment of the level of their financial stability and reliability, shortcomings in the structure and composition of the portfolios of the banking organizations under research were identified with respect to the rationality of resource allocation and the adequacy of equity capital. Thus, it was concluded that taking into account the criteria for managing the banking portfolio, measures of profitability and risk, as well as the reliability of the financial and economic base and financial stability of the bank contributes to the growth of its rating and client base, which is especially important for universal commercial banks.   Received: 4 September 2021 / Accepted: 22 November 2021 / Published: 3 January 2022

  • Beyond the Language of Covid-19: Transformation of Social Discourse and
           Reproduction of Cultural Capital

    • Authors: Olena V. Gayevska, Olena Y. Zhyhadlo, Olena O. Popivniak, Iryna O. Alyeksyeyeva, Tetyana A. Chaiuk
      Pages: 43 - 43
      Abstract: The research draws on the concept of ‘cultural capital’ as well as assumptions of critical discourse analysis and cognitive linguistics to argue that the Covid-19 pandemic may be viewed as a global turning point. The article explores the context and the means that have facilitated the transformation of cultural capital during the coronavirus outbreak. The dramatic changes to culture have been successfully pushed through due to the public’s incessant exposure to institutionalized, governmental and mass media discourses, which have been urging people to adopt new communicative and cultural practices with a varying degree of argumentation and imposition. The changes entail reviewing social structure, spatial and relational stereotypes and standards, which in the long run transforms cultural capital. The global scope of the pandemic and the relatively identical regulations imposed by governments on their citizens generate a tentative tendency to cultural convergence: individuals are made to abandon their culture specific practices and values and adopt those that ensure physical survival.   Received: 8 September 2021 / Accepted: 16 November 2021 / Published: 3 January 2022

  • Mindfulness and Sustainable Consumption: Evidence from Students in
           Istanbul

    • Authors: Fadime Kocapınar Batmaz, Ahu Ergen
      Pages: 56 - 56
      Abstract: We are consuming more resources than ever, exceeding the planet’s capacity for coming generations. This shows the important role of sustainable consumption for the planet. To understand consumption patterns mindfulness may be regarded as an indicator that helps people gain insight into their true selves, which leads them to stay away from materialistic tendencies. Therefore, the objective of this study is to explore the effects of mindfulness training on the sustainable consumption perceptions of university students. In this qualitative study, a two-month mindfulness training is given and two focus group studies are conducted. Results suggest that mindfulness training has an impact on people’s perceptions related to consumption. The findings of this study can serve as proof for the transformational effect of mindfulness on people’s overall mood and subjective wellbeing.   Received: 23 September 2021 / Accepted: 22 November 2021 / Published: 3 January 2022

  • Online Baseline Assessment in Mathematics: Initial Teacher Education
           Entry-Level Student Performance

    • Authors: Folake Modupe Adelabu, Jogymol Alex
      Pages: 68 - 68
      Abstract: This article describes a part of an online and technological intervention at a rural South African Higher Education Institution focused at improving the mathematical knowledge of first-year Senior Phase and Further Education Training (SP& FET) Bachelor of Education student teachers. As part of the interventions in an ICT integrated Mathematics Education and Research Centre, the student teachers were subjected to write an online baseline assessment on the content knowledge in Grade 7 mathematics, which is the first year in Senior Phase in South African Schools. A total of 193 student teachers wrote the online baseline test with 20 items in an invigilated computer laboratory environment. The test items were from the online Computer Aided Mathematics Instruction (CAMI) program which is aligned to the Grade 7 CAPS curriculum of South Africa. The data were analysed by the CAMI system and were further analysed using Microsoft Excel 2016. The result of the test showed an average performance of 38,67% (Variance: 0,66% and SD: 0,81%). This sheds light into the disturbingly limited mathematics subject content knowledge the student teachers enter the HEI with. The programme structure of the Senior Phase mathematics content module of the HEI was also analysed. The authors of this paper recommend that student teachers need to be thoroughly engaged in learning the content during their training as future mathematics teachers. This paper contributes to the ongoing research on ITE programmes at HEIs that prepare teachers for their mathematics teaching role in the senior Phase classrooms.   Received: 21 September 2021 / Accepted: 11 December 2021 / Published: 3 January 2022

  • Criminal Profiling Then and Now: Prospect and Challenges in Malaysia

    • Authors: Maisarah Binti Mustaffa, Muhamad Helmi Md Said, Muhammad Amrullah Bin Drs Nasrul, Muhamad Sayuti Bin Hassan, Ramalinggam Rajamanickam, Nur Khalidah Dahlan
      Pages: 80 - 80
      Abstract: The purpose of this article was to ascertain the concept of criminal profiling by taking into consideration the evolution of its definition, function, methodology and also the background of profiling officers from the beginning up to the present time. Using the critical and literature review approach, references from journals, books, statutes and international cases were analyzed to pinpoint the most recent developments to the criminal profiling method. While researches and literature reviews regarding criminal profiling were undoubtedly significant overseas, it was not the same case back in our homeland. Discussions were few and even then, not entirely focusing nor mentioning the procedures and practice of criminal profiling during investigation. It was also found that there seem to yet exist a clarity in regards to the definition and methodology of criminal profiling nor the background of profiler involved despite it being carried out during investigative process for a long period of time. This article also highlighted the challenges discovered in the practice of criminal profiling such as the vagueness of its method in our law, the existence of race-based profiling practice and the credibility of criminal profiling as an expert evidence in courts which was debatable due to the absence of any yardstick to determine the capability of a profiler.   Received: 16 August 2021 / Accepted: 7 October 2021 / Published: 3 January 2022

  • Violations of Islamic Law in Male–Female Relations: The Shifting of
           Nyubuk Tradition of the Customary Peoples of Lampung

    • Authors: Suhairi, Siti Nurjanah, Saifuddin Zuhri Qudsy, Khoirul Abror, Mufliha Wijayati, Agus Alimuddin, Ahmed Sarjoon Razick, Anas Tajudin
      Pages: 93 - 93
      Abstract: Advances in media and communication technology have wrought significant shifts in the nyubuk tradition of the customary peoples of Lampung Pepadun. Male–female relations, once clearly regulated by customary doctrine through nyubuk, are now mediated by social media technology that facilitates the violation of customary and Islamic laws. This article examines how nyubuk, a cultural medium for communication that has traditionally been used in spouse selection, has shifted as social media has become widely available. More specifically, it seeks to understand how the nyubuk tradition has come to disappear without any significant resistance. In doing so, it applies a qualitative descriptive approach, with data having been collected through interviews. This study finds that despite generations of practice, shifting social and cultural practices have threatened nyubuk with extinction, and the practice has increasingly been replaced by social media. As a result, behaviors that violate social and religious norms have become increasingly common in society. Male–female relations, traditionally regulated under Islamic norms through nyubuk, have become increasingly open as cultural spaces have been replaced by social media. This has facilitated transgressions and other violations of Islamic law by young men and women. Obeisance of religious law depends significantly on local cultural authorities, and where these authorities are ignored, once dominant laws and practices may become extinct.   Received: 28 September 2021 / Accepted: 16 November 2021 / Published: 3 January 2022

  • The Effects of Constitutional Changes on the Judiciary System in Albania:
           The Process of Vetting

    • Authors: Evis Garunja
      Pages: 104 - 104
      Abstract: The adoption of laws in Albania is often achieved through consensus among legislators, declaring it as the best solution for a certain political or legal situation, which resulted ineffective in many cases. The focus of law improvements was concentrated on control/Vetting, that is, the exclusion from the judicial system of individuals who do not meet one of the three constitutional criteria (wealth, moral integrity, and professionalism). Vetting, control per se, is not a reform of justice, but only one of its constitutive phases. The Albanian Constitution changes aim to restructure the justice institutions to achieve the standards requested for the Albanian EU integration. The paper goes through the different constitutional reforms, focusing on the judicial system changes especially on the recent results of the vetting process in Albania. The questions like: How is the Vetting process affecting judicial standards, how are the new Albanian justice institutions reacting, what is the public opinion on this progress and the benefits of society, are essential to understand how this process was conducted in Albania, its problems and difficulties. The results are explained through underlining different studies, media interventions, and recent political and public statements of involved institutions.   Received: 19 August 2021 / Accepted: 1 November 2021 / Published: 3 January 2022

  • The Decline of Indonesia’s Leadership Role in ASEAN: Systemic and
           Domestic Constraints of Jokowi’s Foreign Policy Alterations

    • Authors: Darwis, Bama Andika Putra
      Pages: 115 - 115
      Abstract: This article addresses how systemic stimuli and domestic constraints, specifically on the perception of foreign policy executives, influence Indonesia’s leadership decline in ASEAN under Joko Widodo’s first presidential term. Through the lens of neoclassical realism, it is concluded that Indonesia’s leadership decline in ASEAN is attributed to the changing geopolitical landscape of Asia, with the assertive rise of China and the need to find other models of grand strategies in facing the regional hegemon. Furthermore, there is a unified perception of the irrelevance of maintaining a leadership role in ASEAN, and how the foreign policy executives of the Indonesian President and the Indonesian Ministry of Foreign Affairs have concluded to this approach. Implementation of this research is the contribution to the foreign policy framework in facing certain systemic stimuli in the region of Asia, and to understand the role of a unified perspective among foreign policy executives to the actual output of foreign policy. This article contributes to the discourses of; (1) neoclassical realism, specifically on the role of systemic stimuli and elite perceptions as intervening variables in understanding alterations in foreign policy behavior, and (2) empirical analysis of Indonesia’s leadership role in ASEAN during the presidency of Joko Widodo.   Received: 16 August 2021 / Accepted: 25 October 2021 / Published: 3 January 2022

  • Post-Islamism in Indonesia: Analysis of Islamic Political Party Programs
           in the 2019 National Elections

    • Authors: Gili Argenti, Caroline Paskarina, Nani Darmayanti, Nandang Alamsah Deliarnoor
      Pages: 127 - 127
      Abstract: Although most Indonesia's population is Muslim, the Islamic parties' votes do not show a significant general election. This tendency encourages Islamic parties to develop post-Islamism to win the sympathy of majority Muslim voters in Indonesia. Ahead of the 2019 election, identity politics or sectarian politics had strengthened in the 2017 DKI Jakarta Regional Head Election, and even identity politics had long ago emerged with the proliferation of Sharia regulations in several regions, as well as the issuance of the MUI Fatwa regarding the illegitimacy of secularism, liberalism, and pluralism. This study aims to see whether Islamic parties maintain Post Islamism in political programs in the 2019 election. The research uses a library research method by collecting data from books, journals, national print, and online media. The study results explain that Islamic parties remain consistent in using the Post Islamism approach in the 2019 election, even though their vote acquisition is stagnant as a middle board party.   Received: 4 September 2021 / Accepted: 15 November 2021 / Published: 3 January 2022

  • Shaping “New Man”, Reconstructing “New Woman”: A Return to
           Albanian Totalitarian Socialist Past

    • Authors: Aida Goga, Ardita Prendi, Brunilda Zenelaga
      Pages: 137 - 137
      Abstract: The totalitarian socialist regime, which was installed in Albania in 1945, lasting until 1990, was expressed and articulated as a consistent effort led to modernism or civilization, as a kind of “social engineering” incarnated to the inner individual and society dimensions. Fighting old and traditional mentality, the totalitarian socialist countries created the infrastructure for spreading the model of the “new man” according to new principles, aiming to make everyday life productive and disciplined. Under the implementation of the “new man” approach, especially the image of woman was reconstructed. The purpose of this paper is to analyze how the ideal of the “new man” and “new woman” were socially constructed and how they have influenced the everyday life of people, under the totalitarian socialist regime, referring to the case of the Albania. 18 in depth semi structured interviews with woman and men from 55 until 85 years old have been conducted and the poetry and text songs of that time have been explored. The research showed that through the trinomen “education-work-tempering”, the “new man” and “new woman” was socially constructed. People’s social status, during the socialist regime in Albania influences their perceptions and their attachment to the “new man” and “new woman” portraits   Received: 4 September 2021 / Accepted: 15 November 2021 / Published: 3 January 2022

    • Authors: Dyah Sugandini, Garaika, Yuni Istanto
      Pages: 149 - 149
      Abstract: This study aims to analyze the success of the e-learning system, which is influenced by learner computer anxiety, social influence, perceived usefulness, and usage satisfaction. This study uses a survey, with the respondents being students at universities in the Special Region of Yogyakarta, Indonesia. The number of respondents is 250 people. The sampling technique is purposive sampling, and the data analysis method uses a structural model, namely PLS-SEM. The results showed that the e-learning adoption success model was accepted. However, this study's results showed that the effect of perceived usefulness and learner computer anxiety on adoption is not significant. This research has a novelty related to adopting innovations, namely e-learning in forced conditions, and there is no choice but online learning, which must be done during the Covid-19 pandemic. This research contributes to the support of the technology adoption theory by users in situations of involuntary adoption.   Received: 14 October 2021 / Accepted: 30 November 2021 / Published: 3 January 2022

  • Power Consolidation of Jokowi's Administration: The Role of the
           Social Media and Political Issues in Indonesian Democracy

    • Authors: Ahmad Sahide
      Pages: 159 - 159
      Abstract: Joko Widodo (Jokowi) is the first Indonesian Democratic President elected by the peripheral people and not the elite. Jokowi is the only Indonesian President that is not the leader of any political party. Therefore, the President was faced with the issues of power consolidation in the initial administrative years. Some professional elites failed the President because they assumed a possible overthrown. During the presidential election in 2019 with Prabowo Subianto, Jokowi took K. H. Ma'ruf Amien as a vice presidential candidate and was attacked by China and the Indonesian Communist Party (ICP/PKI). However, Jokowi was re-elected for the second period (2019-2024) due to his close relationship with Indonesians, which is different from other presidents.   Received: 23 August 2021 / Accepted: 24 November 2021 / Published: 3 January 2022

  • You and Me Against the World: Biographical Narrative Analysis on Same-Sex
           Couples' Experiences in the Philippines

      Abstract: This article contributes to the emerging literature on gender studies, in general, and on the LGBTQ+ phenomenon, in particular. While the global society recognizes the rights of the third sex, other countries are reluctantly acknowledging while inadvertently stigmatizing LGBTQ+ individuals. Unfortunately, some Filipino same-sex couples were still the target of ridicule, criticism, and prejudice. In this paper, we analyzed via a biographical narrative the relationship dynamics of same-sex Filipino couples confronted with homophobia, heteronormativity, and discrimination. Biographical narratives established an excellent way of making theoretical sense of social phenomena such as gender studies. To do this, we interviewed same-sex couples from the provinces of Western Visayas, Philippines. The results revealed interdisciplinary perspectives that reflected the basis for engaging and maintaining such a relationship. A recurring essence across all identified perspectives that compelled same-sex couples to stay in a relationship was their mutual love. Mutual love becomes a strong driving force that keeps the relationship between same-sex couples all the more substantial while facing heterosexual society's disapprobation. The concepts of love and friendship, by extension, genuine same-sex relationship, when properly understood, can go beyond the border of human instinctual tendencies. Such impartial manifestation of love can extend across cultural differences and eventually build crossroads as avenues of sharing what one has without counting the cost. We recommend the need to further the campaign against homophobic views, albeit providing counseling intervention and psycho-education that help improve the psychological well-being of same-sex couples.   Received: 16 August 2021 / Accepted: 16 November 2021 / Published: 3 January 2022

  • Knowledge Transfer through Computer-based Systems in Manufacturing
           Networks: A Study on Albanian Plants

    • Authors: Kreshnik Vukatana, Elira Hoxha, Kozeta Sevrani
      Pages: 180 - 180
      Abstract: This study shows a general view about knowledge transfer between manufacturing plants in developing countries like Albania, which are part of multinational companies’ network (MCN). Part of this goal is the study of computer-based systems from conference calls and intranets to more advanced ones like data warehouses, management information systems (MIS) and executive information systems (EIS), as enablers of knowledge flow and absorptive capacity. The paper examines four case studies based on semi-structured interviews, where the data collected highlight a good coverage of computer-based systems in function of knowledge sharing. In half of the cases, this is done internally in the plant and not over the network of plants. We propose to upgrade where possible the systems used in a distributed way to have data and information connections across the network. In some cases, emerge barriers such as lack of time, lack of tolerance for errors, or the need for assistance. Conclusions show that staff training related to computer-based systems in the optics of knowledge enablers is important for the companies, while the incentives are not considered as a key factor for knowledge transfer.    Received: 15 July 2021 / Accepted: 23 September 2021 / Published: 3 January 2022

  • Increased Fossil Fuel Consumption and Its Impact on Energy Efficiency and
           Economic Growth

    • Authors: Kehinde Damilola Ilesanmi, Devi Datt Tewari
      Pages: 188 - 188
      Abstract: Energy efficiency improvement is believed to be an effective means of reducing energy consumption thereby reducing green-house gas emission and as well promoting sustainable economic development. Therefore, ascertaining the energy efficiency level will guide policy makers on the right kind policy intervention that will guarantee energy security, climate change mitigation and sustainable growth and development. The study employed a multivariate regression technique to estimation of the impact of a change in the energy structure on aggregate energy efficiency and economic growth. It was revealed in the study that, though an increase usage of fossil fuel is an important factor input for economic growth, however, it is inimical to the efforts aimed at combating climate change. The study also revealed that the marginal efficiency of the energy inputs is important for ensuring increased output as well as sustainable energy supply. Energy efficiency was seen as a mechanism for improving optimal energy utilization. Therefore, improving the level of energy efficiency will significantly assist in providing clean energy coupled with achieving sustainable development goals. This will benefit the nation in terms of ensuring energy security together with climate change mitigation. Policy makers should also focus more on investing in energy efficiency promoting technologies in order to reduce the per capita energy consumption without compromising the economic output level.   Received: 16 June 2021 / Accepted: 7 November 2021 / Published: 3 January 2022

  • A Study of the Impact of Value-Added Efficiency on Profitability and
           Market Value in the Indian Pharma Industry

    • Authors: Shireen Rosario, Chandra Sen Mazumdar
      Pages: 212 - 212
      Abstract: The aim of this paper is to highlight the growing influence of Intellectual Capital (IC) on the profitability and market valuation, especially in knowledge-based industries. The scope of this paper is restricted to the Indian Pharmaceutical Industry, which is highly dependent on IC. This study employs the measure of Value-Added Intellectual Coefficient (VAIC) to assess impact of IC on the profitability and market valuation and to assess the growth of VAIC and its components among the companies over the years selected for the study. The study uses 22 Pharmaceutical companies listed in the Bombay Stock Exchange for a period of 12 years from the financial year 2008-09 to 2019-20. By using Path Analysis, the study demonstrates that the components of VAIC have an impact on the ROCE and market value, which has only grown as compared to earlier studies & years. The study also demonstrates that high sales and profits need not necessarily result in high VAIC.   Received: 7 October 2021 / Accepted: 24 November 2021 / Published: 3 January 2022

      Abstract: In the academic world, the authors and the publication of academic writing are inseparable. By publishing academic writing, academicians can improve their performance and increase their visibility in academia. However, academic writing is not an easy thing, as it is directly tied to the ethics of academic authorship. However, there have been several forms of unethical identified in academic authorship. Among them is the unethical placement of the author's name. This dishonesty certainly has a negative impact on the world of scholarship because those who are in this world of scholarship are said to have the nature of high integrity. Among the main causes of this problem is the need to achieve annual target. Is academic authorship tied to the ethics of academic authorship' What are the forms of dishonesty in academic authorship' There are two main objectives in solving the question. First, explain the ethics of academic authorship. Second, explain the forms of dishonesty specifically related to naming groups of authors in academic writing. The documentation method is carried out to obtain data related to ethics and forms of dishonesty in academic writing to achieve these objectives. The collected data were analyzed by content analysis to explain the inaccuracies in author nomination in academic writing. This study found that academic authorship is bound by its ethics as authoritative and recognized writing. One of the most common frauds is to put the name of an author or a group of authors who contributed to academic authorship. However, there are two main forms of academic dishonesty: putting the name of the individual as the author despite not contributing to the authorship and not putting the name of the contributing author in the authorship. This practice violates the ethics of academic authorship.   Received: 26 July 2021 / Accepted: 6 November 2021 / Published: 3 January 2022

  • A Narrative Systematic Review of the Mental Toughness Programme Offered by
           the National Youth Development Agency

    • Authors: Thulani Andrew Chauke, Khashane Stephen Malatji
      Pages: 280 - 280
      Abstract: The rapid increase of poverty, crime, and unemployment in South Africa results in youth vulnerability. Youth not in employment, not in education, and not in training are most vulnerable to life setbacks, find it difficult dealing with criticism, rejection, and failure. Thus, youth workers responsible for the coordination of youth service programme need to design an autonomy-supportive programme that can prepare youth mentally before youth are placed in a youth development programme that seeks to enhance youth employability. The National Youth Development Agency in South Africa under the National Youth Service Programme has developed a mental toughness programme curriculum that NYS volunteers undergo before participating in youth skill development programme or community service programme for a minimum of five days. The aim of the study is to explore the impact of the Mental Toughness Programme on the positive development of youth through youth lived experience in the Western Cape Province, South Africa. This study made use of a qualitative research approach, non-probability sampling to sample eight youth who participated in the Mental Toughness Programme offered by the National Youth Development Agency. In this study, we recommend that the National Youth Development Agency knowledge and research division should conduct a longitudinal study that can evaluate the impact of the Mental Toughness Programme on positive youth development in South Africa. The National Youth Development Agency should revise the mental toughness programme curriculum in a way that the programme goes beyond five days and physical toughness should be cooperated in the curriculum to enhance social cohesion.   Received: 27 July 2021 / Accepted: 6 October 2021 / Published: 3 January 2022

      Pages: 303 - 303
      Abstract: This study aimed to identify the role of effective planning in achieving sustainable development in Al Ain University, through illustrating the relation that links the integrative theoretical framework of each of the effective planning and sustainable development. The researchers applied the descriptive survey method to investigate the non-quantitative variables and analyze them through the questionnaire into measurable quantitative variables. The study population and sample comprised all the academic leaders in Al Ain University, to whom the researchers delivered (150) copies of the questionnaire. The study relied on secondary resources such as related books, studies, magazines, and periodicals. The primary resource was constructing a questionnaire related to the study subject, and based on the theoretical framework of the study as well as the previous studies. Two statistical software were used to process the obtained data namely, SPSS and AMOS, by applying the field study on the sample to analyze the correlational and causal relationships among the study variables. The results showed that there is a medium level of strategic planning in Al Ain University as seen by its Academics and that the university achieves a medium level of sustainable development as seen by the academic leaders. The results further showed statistically significant effects at (α≥0.05) level for the dimensions of effective planning in achieving sustainable development as a whole. The correlation coefficient (R) was (0.70), which is a statistically significant value that indicated a statistically significant correlation between the independent and dependent variables.   Received: 11 May 2021 / Accepted: 24 November 2021 / Published: 3 January 2022

      Abstract: This study aims to examine the effect of legal compliance on the health of commercial banks and Islamic banks in Indonesia, to the extent that compliance with the provisions and standards set by Bank Indonesia has an impact on improving bank performance. This study uses micro banking data listed on the Indonesia Stock Exchange (IDX) for the period 2015- 2019. The data used is panel data that is tested in the relationship between measures of bank health legal compliance with indicators of capital, asset quality, management, earnings, and market risk sensitivity (CAMELS). The results of this study indicate that compliance with earnings and compliance with market risk sensitivity has a negative effect on bank performance, while compliance with liquidity has no effect on bank performance. Furthermore, three control variables used in this study, namely capital, asset quality, and corporate governance, were able to produce results as predicted.   Received: 19 August 2021 / Accepted: 6 November 2021 / Published: 3 January 2022

  • Literary Time and Literary Space in Imagism and Ezra Pound’s Poetry

    • Authors: Vjona Sylejmani Shabani, Muhamet Hamiti
      Pages: 330 - 330
      Abstract: The relationship between literature and philosophy has led to the inflow of 'small' literature from 'big' literatures within the interaction between literary time and literary space with a propensity to emerge ‘big' again in another literary time and space. The most influential factor in ‘making it new' or 'from big to small, and big again' turns out to be time on account of the fact that the literary creator, namely the poet, is mortal. Since the existence of a poet as a creator turns out to be ‘temporal’, ‘making it new’ turns out to be vital for the next temporality. Therefore, this paper, using the document research method, examines Pound's poetry refracted through the time and literary space of his creative existence, as the urge for translation became an influential factor for Pound himself as a ‘new’ author. Thus, the paper analyses ‘temporal overlapping’ under the inspiring influence of Pound's poetic re-creation, either as a conversion of translated matter or as its enhancement by the poets he read. The divergent takes on mimesis by Plato and Aristotle helps Pound's creative originality, whereas J. Hillis Miller’s reading of the theory of temporality of De Mann and Heidegger, as well as the time-space transformations, help clarify 'temporal overlapping'. These, in turn, make us believe that the creation of ‘new originality’ influenced by ‘old originality’ during the transformation of time into space brings about the immortality of the poet along with ‘the little big’ literature.   Received: 7 October 2021 / Accepted: 29 November 2021 / Published: 3 January 2022

      Abstract: This study addresses the question of the problematic translation of Arabic politeness formulas into English in Palace of Desire. The selected translated utterances were critically reviewed using Brown and Levinson’s model of politeness (1987), Culpepper’s Impoliteness framework, and Grice’s Cooperative principle. The study reveals that the translations of politeness formulas may not necessarily jeopardize the translation's overall authenticity, they do however lead to the loss of some of the text’s cultural implications, in the sense that the offered translations remove some stylistic and cultural features that the original author intended their work to have.   Received: 21 September 2021 / Accepted: 22 November 2021 / Published: 3 January 2022
