Abstract: The objective of this work was the physicochemical characterization of a Moroccan natural clay from the Jorf Arfoud region (Lampert Coodinates: x = 595610, y = 101578) and its valorization in the elimination of organic pollutants (methyl orange MO and methylene blue MB) from aqueous solutions, with the adsorption technique on raw and calcined clay at 500°C. The clay was characterized by chemical analysis such as X-ray fluorescence (XRF), X-ray diffraction (XRD), Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR) and Scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Crude and purified clays, consisting essentially of silica and alumina, are a characteristic property of phyllosilicates and also contain amounts of quartz, kaolinite and calcite as associated minerals. The experiments were performed after optimization of the parameters influencing the system, such as pH, adsorbent mass, initial dye concentration and temperature. The clays used absorb better the MB than MO, for an initial concentration of 10 mg/L and 20 mg/L respectively. Langmuir and Freundlich models of adsorption isotherms were applied to fit experimental equilibrium data. Results have showed that the adsorption of MB and MO followed very well the second order kinetic model on raw clay. The adsorption process was found to be exothermic in the case of MB. However, the adsorption of MO was endothermic.

Abstract: Since the major problem connected to the industrial production of Polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHAs) is their high production price, this study was performed to inspect the new potential bacterial species for industrial PHA production. The bacterial samples were collected during a screening program from Pink Salt Lake as an extreme environment in the south of Iran, Fars province. The PHA-producing bacteria were isolated. Then further studies on different morphological, cultural, and physiological characteristics of isolates were performed. Among the isolated microorganisms in this study, 18 of 143 bacteria were selected as PHA-producer microorganisms to be studied for analysis along with a partial sequence of the 16S rRNA gene. This study introduces two bacteria; Bacillus endophyticus BCCS 011 and Lysobacter sp. BCCS 052 as new potential PHA producer that has not been reported previously. They could be an ideal option for cheaper PHAs production.

Abstract: Composting is a preferable treatment option for putrescible waste disposal. In the small-scale composting, the control of the process is easy and high quality compost is usually produced while the conditions of industrial composting and small-scale composting are so different especially in developing country that municipal solid waste (MSW) is collected as commingled. Unfortunately, there is still a lack of information and experiences regarding the successful industrial composting from commingled municipal solid waste (CMSW). Therefore, this study was conducted on the compost production from CMSW in Shiraz City, Iran, with the composting capacity of 100 tonnes per day. The common process of windrow composting was modified for industrial composting in Shiraz City. The efficiency of the modified process was assessed using physical, chemical, and economic analyses. In addition, the maturity and stability of produced compost was evaluated using different indices such as fertilizing index (FI), clean index (CI), static respiration index (SRI), cumulative respiration index (CRI), and C-CO2 production index (C-CO2 Index). Finally, solutions and suggestions were presented to improve the system performance. Results showed that although the input putrescible waste to composting site has low homogeneity, produced compost in Shiraz City has a “good” quality. The produced compost with FI and CI of about 4.2 and 3.6, respectively, has high fertilizing potential and medium heavy metal content and can be sold without any restriction. Based on the economical analysis, poor marketing, strategies of bad marketing, lack of public awareness, and visible impurities, in spite of complying with the required standards, are the main reasons for the low sale price. The results of this study can be valuable for industrial composting in the cities where wastes are not separated at source.

Abstract: The relevance of this article is to study the market of educational services for preschool children, since education is the fundamental beginning, the Foundation of human socialization and the most important means of cultural communication between generations. In relation to the modern period of Russian education development, it is a close attention and control to all areas of educational activity, as well as a duty to the continuous development of each educational institution, including the modern specifics in the field of manage0ment, using a marketing approach. The purpose of the study is to investigate the practice of educational services consumption, using a marketing approach. Research methods: an online survey was used as a research method, which allows us most effectively to investigate the quality and specifics of educational services provided. Research results: the article examines the market of educational services for preschoolers, describes the quality of services offered in the view of consumers. Practices of educational services consumption are investigated. The novelty and originality of the research lies in the fact that the market of educational services was studied for the first time using a marketing approach. It shows that producers of additional educational services primarily focus on the cost of services in their advertising messages, and most educational centers use information about highly qualified teaching staff. It determines that the future of promoting educational services on the Internet belongs to social networks. The main semantic units of competitive advantages of educational institutions stated in the advertising message are identified: training program; cost; qualified personnel; individual approach; unique additional offer. The article shows that the choice of additional classes is extremely limited and does not meet the needs of modern parents. It is determined that choosing additional classes, following things are important for parents: strengthening the child's health, the appearance of new acquaintances, which directly affects the socialization of the child in society. It is shown that fewer students attend foreign language classes and music classes. There are quite interesting and rare wishes of parents for narrow specializations: gymnastics, theater Studio, classes with a speech therapist, social sections. It is revealed that the highest level of satisfaction the following characteristics of educational services showed: the location of the institution; the schedule; the result of a child's development after attending; the attitude of teachers to children. Practical significance: the data Obtained in this work can be used in marketing, social psychology, pedagogy, and age psychology.

Abstract: The current stage of development of Russian society is characterized by rather intense and serious socio-economic, industrial, legal and spiritual-moral changes. These changes, due to the characteristics of mental development, have the greatest impact on the personality of young people and their behavior. The paper considers the problem of the value orientation of contemporary youth in Russia. The psychological characteristics of the person have been determined, in relation to which various value orientations are formed from the point of view of E. Fromm’s concept, and their role in vocational formation. The authors have proved the integrity, the integration of the value system with other personality characteristics, as well as the differences in individuals regarding the orientation to “Being” or “Possession”. The conclusions have been drawn that the nature of the value orientation of young people in contemporary Russia is complex. Values are divided into blocks according to the spheres of human life and are subject to the more general law of their dominant orientation - “Being” or “Possession”. Accordingly, the nature of personality orientation determines the formation and development of value groups.

Abstract: Digital transformation is most often considered in theory and practice without taking into account the peculiarities of economic development, the action of economic trends, political and economic laws. The need to connect the needs of the population with the capabilities of the digital economy as a new technology is obvious, but the fact that digital transformation contributes, on the one hand, to development and progress, and on the other, the emergence of negative processes, the danger of which makes its introduction ambiguous, is also beyond doubt. The study reveals new opportunities for the digital economy of Russia in the context of the implementation of the Strategy for the Development of the Information Society. The article reveals the experience of leading countries that have achieved the greatest results in the development and implementation of effective state innovation economic policies; and how it can be used in shaping Russian regional innovation policies. The authors draw attention to the factors limiting the country's economic growth and ways to overcome this restriction, and propose to form a new mobilization model for managing the digital economy, developed on the basis of domestic digital technologies, transparent processes for their implementation.

Abstract: The relevance of this article is the need to study the students' understanding of public relations as a means of management. The experience of countries with a developed social sphere shows that the use of public relations in the management of social work institutions can improve the social status of social services, form a positive public opinion and, as a result, ensure the social effectiveness of services provided. The purpose of the research is to analyze students' perceptions of the essence of public relations as a means of managing social services in the external environment. Research methods: as a research method, we used a questionnaire survey, which allows us to qualitatively investigate public relations in the organization through the eyes of students. Results of the research: the article considers the students' views on the means of managing social services in the external environment, and reveals the role of public relations in the management of social services in the external environment in the representation of students. The novelty and originality of the research consists in the analysis of public relations as a means of management in the external environment in relation to the activities of social protection institutions in the representation of students. It is revealed that, in the view of students, public relations accumulate management tools and include: the use of various forms of communication aimed at identifying common views or interests of different groups; they contribute to the formation of partnership and friendly relations between the social service, clients and the General public; ensure the achievement of mutual understanding based on truth and full public awareness and, ultimately, form a positive public opinion and a favorable image for the social service. The essential aspects, specific features, structural and functional features and opportunities of public relations as a means of managing social services in the external environment are highlighted in the students' view. It is determined that in the students' views, the management of the social service does not have a well-thought-out concept of organizing public relations, which leads to ineffective management of the social service in the external environment and is used in social work spontaneously. Practical significance: the data obtained in this work can be used in social psychology, Economics, advertising psychology, management psychology, as well as for further theoretical development of this issue.

Abstract: One of the most promising areas for the development of the domestic economy is the agricultural sector which is characterized by a high level of volatility due to a wide range of business risks including weather and seasonal changes. There are significant economic imbalances despite the active processes of automation of the agricultural sector as well as the desire of farmers to reduce the cost of production while simultaneously improving its quality. And it’s largely due to imperfect approaches to price formation. One of these problematic areas is the sphere of cargo transportation of agricultural products. Now the usual ways of supporting entrepreneurs in the form of preferential loans, special tax regimes, and aid grants are no longer fully able to create optimal conditions for agricultural producers. The reason of this is the complex, multi-faceted nature of production and financial and economic relations in the agricultural sector. Above-listed tools are able to harmonize the sphere of agriculture as an economic system, however, a number of issues require the development of effective organizational and economic measures in a rather tight range. So, it is advisable to review the pricing conditions for cargo transportation of agricultural products taking into account both the weather conditions and the factor of seasonality. The authors give reasons for the need to introduce a flexible approach to the application of trade surcharges (tariff schedule) in this area. The rationale for the feasibility of correcting prices for carriers’ services taking into account these factors is presented since the proposed measures reduce the surface damage of agricultural products during transportation. It leads to a longer period of sell-by-date and, that is why, obtaining additional income which more than compensates of the transportation costs increasing.

 Volume 8  |  Issue 4 |  Pages: 1337-1344 | PDF | HTML   

 

Abstract: One of the major micronutrient deficiencies in Indonesia is iodine deficiency disorders (IIDs) which can lead to poor health, beside IIDs, folic acid consumption is still quite low which can be fatal especially for pregnant women which can lead to fetal abnormalities and lead to destructive biotechnological effects. One of the efforts to tackle those problems is to do fortification  by addition of iodine and folic acid into dry noodles which is substituted by breadfruit flour. The problem of this micronutrient addition is micronutrient decreasing during processing, especially steaming and drying process. The purpose of this research was to determine the reduced levels of iodine and folic acid during steaming and drying process in dry noodles from breadfruit flour. The research method consisted of two stages, that were preliminary research and primary research. Preliminary research was done to get the best comparison between wheat flour and breadfruit flour, the comparisons used were 90:10, 80:20 and 70:30 as well to determine the best drying temperature, the temperature used were 35oC, 40oC and 45oC. Primary research was done to determine decrease of iodine content by UV-spectrophotometer analysis and decrease of folic acid content by HPLC in steaming and drying process. The  response of this research included chemicak response, that were moisture content, fat content, protein content and carbohydrate content and sensory responses include color, flavour, and texture. The result of this research was to obtain the best comparison between wheat flour and breadfruit flour which is 80:20 with drying temperature at 35oC. In this research, 200 ppm of KIO3 and 2500mcg/100g folic acid were added to dry noodles processing. Duringsteaming processthe content of KIO3 decreased to 191 ppm whereas folic acid decreased to 630,385mcg/100g. During drying process the content of KIO3 decreased to 190 ppm and folic acid to 626,690mcg/100g. Results showed thatdry noodles had moisture content of 6.06%, protein content of 32.022%, fat content of 4%and carbohydrate content of 2.313%. Results of sensory test showed that dry noodles with breadfruit flour and dry noodles without breadfruit flour were not significantly different in terms of color, aroma and texture but had significant effect in terms of taste.

Abstract: For basic operations of the timber industry, numerous technological and technical solutions were patented for the past few years as the results of the intellectual property. The question of building the knowledge bases on technologies and equipment for involvement of the non-wood forest resources into the processing process lacks sufficient attention. Building the knowledge bases in this field resulted from the identified tendency for the development of products from various types of natural raw materials for pharmaceutical, food-manufacturing, cosmetic industries and other areas of the social sphere and economics. Among the various types of natural raw materials, the priority position is occupied by those with wide range of biological effect, including such as wood bark. The development of the knowledge base in the field of wood bark involvement in various social and economic spheres is based on a systematic patent search. Moreover, developers and inventors are increasingly patenting the results of their intellectual activities in the field of promising types of new intellectual property objects for the use of wood bark. This fact indicates that the problems of improving the quality and efficiency of technologies and disintegrating equipment in this area have not been completely resolved. All this necessitates the synthesis and patenting of new market-competitive technologies and equipment for involvement of wood bark in processing and using it in industries, agriculture and in the social sphere. In this regard, the authors conducted research on patent information search, collection and systematization of information. The state and trends of patenting in the field of technologies and equipment for the use of wood bark in industry and in the social sphere were identified, as well as the main patenting goals (effects) of patented intellectual property objects. The article also presents the most noteworthy patents collected during the building of the knowledge base.

Abstract: Rock disintegration is one of the most important technological operations in the production of crushed stone, which is widely used in the construction of roads and railways, buildings, structures, hydraulic engineering facilities, bridges, tunnels, the production of concrete, asphalt, dry building mixes, and other objects and products. In recent years, research has been actively conducted to improve the processes of rock disintegration by reducing energy intensity and improving the quality of disintegrating technologies and equipment. Moreover, developers and inventors are actively patenting the results of their intellectual activities in the field of promising types of new intellectual property for high-potential technologies and equipment for producing high-quality crushed stone. This fact indicates that the problems of improving the quality and efficiency of technologies and disintegrating equipment, in particular crushers for obtaining crushed stone, have not been solved yet. All this necessitates the synthesis and patenting of new market-competitive technologies and equipment for obtaining crushed stone by disintegrating rocks. In this regard, the authors of this work carried out research aimed at building a knowledge base in the field of patenting technologies and crushers that ensure the production of crushed stone for the construction of roads and railways, buildings, structures, hydraulic engineering facilities, bridges, tunnels, the production of concrete, asphalt, dry mixes, and other objects and products. The research also included the categorization of the main areas of patenting in this field. This involved using the method of system analysis performed based on the results of patent information search, collecting and systematizing the information. The current state and trends of patenting in the field of rock disintegration are identified, the main goals (effects) of patented intellectual property are defined. The article presents the most noteworthy patents collected during the building the knowledge base.

Abstract: Targeted reforestation refers to ecosystems with natural and artificial energy reserves. Additional energy reserves are spent on growing and harvesting, various types of forest care, forest use, and delivery of products to consumers, including energy costs for all types of preparation. The wood to be harvested must be assessed on the energy consumption required for its production. The purpose of this work was to develop a comprehensive methodology to assess the energy effect, model the process of plantation operation considering the soil type, tree species, and technical parameters of operating machines. According to the estimation results of the trunk wood energy value, it has been established that depending on the growth rate and maturity level, the target plantations are divided into two types, which should be taken into account during planting and subsequent rotation. It is shown that with regard to the technological features of machine systems and the type of plantation, it is necessary to consider dimensional characteristics of the planting scheme and the technological cycle of exploiting the forest plantation.  The results of mathematical modeling following the technological parameters of operating machines and all types of costs showed that the cost of the selected target species for reforestation can provide sufficient profit when optimizing the machine system operations. The principle of modular division of machines system on power, technological, and transport modules is offered, which vary in purpose, criteria of parameters optimization, and indicators of work. The obtained mathematical model and methodology of target planting optimization can be applied in forestry and agricultural complexes, as well as become the basis for further research in this direction.

Abstract: In recent years, the results of intellectual activity - numerous technological and technical solutions - have been patented for the basic operations of the forestry complex. Insufficient attention is paid to the formation of knowledge bases in the field of technologies and equipment for involving non-timber forest resources in the processing. The formation of databases in this area is caused by the identified trends in the development of products from various types of natural raw materials for the pharmaceutical, food, cosmetic industries and other spheres of the social sphere and the economy. Among the types of natural raw materials, an important place is occupied by raw materials with a wide range of biological effects, including woody greens. The development of a knowledge base in the field of involving tree greenery in various spheres of the social sphere and economy was carried out on the basis of a systematic patent search. The analysis made it possible to form a knowledge base about the main most characteristic technological and technical solutions patented in Russia in the field of harvesting, processing and use of greenery of tree species growing in Russia in industry, agriculture and in the social sphere. These solutions are classified according to the types of greenery used (complex of conifers, and in the context of woody greenery of fir, pine, larch, cedar and dwarf cedar, juniper, and deciduous trees). Within each class of patents in the field of wood greenery processing, patents are given taking into account the directions of their use, the effects achieved as a result of the implementation of patented solutions with the allocation of economic entities conducting patenting in the studied area. In this regard, the authors carried out research with the conduct of patent information search, collection and systematization of information. The state and tendencies of directions of patenting in the field of technologies and equipment for the use of tree greenery in industry and in the social sphere are revealed, the main goals of patenting (effects) are determined to achieve which the patented intellectual property objects are considered. The most interesting patents collected during the formation of the knowledge base are presented.

 Volume 8  |  Issue 4 |  Pages: 1408-1415 | PDF | HTML   

 

Abstract: Despite the urgent need to accelerate the development of intensive forest management and reforestation technologies in Russia, the problem of creating progressive technologies and techniques to increase the efficiency of reforestation by seedlings and saplings of forest crops has not been completely resolved, which are serious challenges for accelerated and high-quality reforestation. Of particular concern is the lack of patented equipment competitive in the domestic and foreign markets for reforestation by seedlings and saplings of forest crops that can accelerate the creation of highly productive forests. To answer these challenges, it is proposed as a tool for the synthesis of patentable solutions that increase the efficiency of forest regeneration by seedlings and saplings of forest crops, to use the knowledge base formed on the basis of patent information search and the author’s methodology of functional, structural and technological analysis. A classification of the main areas of patenting in this area is proposed. The most characteristic patented objects of technologies and equipment that can be used as analogues and prototypes for the synthesis and patenting of new intellectual property for planting seedlings/saplings, as well as business entities patenting in this area, are identified. The effects (goals) for the achievement of which the technical solutions incorporated in the patents are directed are revealed. Using the generated knowledge base and the FSTA methodology, a synthesis of new patentable technical solutions has been carried out. Its features and some results are given on the example of several basic objects of machines and manual devices for planting seedlings/saplings. It is proved that the application of the proposed methodology to the selected object for improving the processes of planting seedlings/saplings is effective, which is confirmed by the development and patenting of fundamentally new technical solutions for equipping forest regeneration with seedlings and saplings of forest crops.

Ayham Taha Al-Rawi

Volume 8  |  Issue 4 |  Pages: 1416-1419 | PDF | HTML   

 

Abstract: The sulfuric water in Iraq is considered one of the polluted water resources due to their high sulfur contents which reach about (1000 ppm) in Iraqi sulfur springs which consider more than the permitted rate in the global scale limiting (200-400 ppm). So, this study was conducted to treat the water of the sulfur springs by using magnetic techniques, through the identification of the physical and chemical traits before and after treatment as well as determining the validity of these types of water for different uses. The Mosul city contains several sulfur water springs which located in (A) Mosul dam area, (B) area of Ein Kebriet in the center of Mosul, and (C) area of the Hammam-Alalil, where the sulfur water causes contamination of the surface water due to flowing towards the Tigris River. So, magnetic techniques were applied; where the sulfur water was passed for a period of (15 and 30 minutes), through a closed mgnetic circuit of a device which generates a magnetic field of (1000 Gauss). We found, that after the treatment by the magnetic techniques the physical characteristics changed when the yellow sulfur color disappeared and converted to the transparent color. Also, the sulfuric odor disappeared while the chemical properties such as the pH values found its change; in the site (A) from 6 to 7.1, in the site (B) from 6.5 to 7.4 and in the site (C) from 9 to 8.4. Moreover, electric conductivity (EC) decreased; in site (A) from 1721 ppm  to 17 ppm, in the site (B) from 1414 ppm  to 15 ppm and in the site (C) from 871 ppm  to (9) while the  total dissolved solids (TDS) values increased in the site (A) from 3.5×103 ppm to 3.8×103 ppm, in the site (B) from 2.8×103 ppm  to 3.1×103 ppm and in the site (C) from 1.7×103 ppm  to 1.8×103 ppm. Due to the efficiency of treatment by increasing the solubility of water contents, and decreased the sulfate values (SO4) in site (A) from 1392 ppm to 144, in site (B) from 945 ppm to 95 ppm and in site (C) from 247 to 26, due to their conversion to hydrogen sulfide gas and their volatilization in the atmosphere, which is caused by a fault odor in the laboratory. Thus, the flowing of the treated water to the river contributes in the enrichment of surface water, also possible for its investment in agricultural irrigation.

Abstract:  Nanoparticles are used in various fields of science, especially medicine. Advent of nanotechnology has led to significant development in disease diagnosis, treatment and drug delivery. Silver nanoparticles (Ag-NPs) play an important role in medical application, which makes them a viable alternative to common antibiotics. Amongst various methods, synthesis of Ag-NPs via green method has the advantage of being cost effective with no toxic agent. In this study, Spherical shape Ag-NPs with average size of 30 nm were synthetized using Anethum graveolens leaf extract as a green, cost-effective, non-toxic and environment-friendly source. Transmission electron microscopy (TEM), particle size analysis (PSA) and Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) were performed to characterize synthesized Ag-NPs. The antibacterial activity of the synthetized Ag-NPs was evaluated against gram positive and negative bacterial pathogens. The minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) at different concentrations of Ag-NPs were used to evaluate their antibacterial properties against Staphylococcus aureus, Enterococcus faecalis, Escherichia coli, and Pseudomonas aeruginosa pathogens. The results exhibited a desirable antibacterial property of Ag-NPs, suggested its usage as putative antibacterial agents. Moreover, the anticancer effect of green synthesized Ag-NPs was evaluated against MCF-7 lines and results showed that the cell viability is depended on the concentration of Ag-NPs. In short, this method provides a simple, cost effective and eco-friendly way to synthesis Ag-NPs which can be used as a suitable alternative to common antibiotics that use hazardous chemical agents, additionally, with anticancer effects against MCF-7 cells.

Volume 8  |  Issue 4 |  Pages: 1439-1446 | PDF | HTML   

 

Abstract: Corruption in Indonesia has spread like a virus since the 1960s that is harming the nation’s economy as well as victims of these crimes. Although the government tried to eradicate such crimes i.e. law enforcement, the issue still exists. The normative legal research method is used in the current study. The statute approach is utilized to review the termination of investigations as the basis for pre-trial submission by third parties for which data was collected by library research. To analyse the data, researchers examined the obtained materials to process it further. Results state that there is still a significant gap between law enforcement officials and people suffering from these corruption cases. The pre-trial complaint mechanism is not effective so far thus leaving ambiguity in victims’ minds. Based on study results, we, therefore, recommend that some serious and clear eradication mechanism should be introduced by law enforcement agencies to reduce corruption in Indonesia as well as victims should be given special consideration in the whole justice process.

Volume 8  |  Issue 4 |  Pages: 1450-1455 | PDF | HTML   

 

Abstract: This article aims to examine the use of exoneration clauses in a Notary deeds, as a new form of legal protection for Notaries in Indonesia. The research method used is juridical normative, with data collection techniques in the form of literature study of primary and secondary legal materials, and supported by interviews in support of the two legal materials. The results showed that it is possible to include an exoneration clause in a Notary deed, even though the Notary is not a party to the deed, the Notary can include the exoneration clause for his/ her own benefit. The exoneration clause as a self-protection effort carried out by a Notary, is a form of legal protection. In addition to functioning as an initial warning to the parties in the agreement, with this clause if there is an individual who states/ gives something that is untrue, then law enforcement officials can immediately take action against these parties without involving the Notary any further.

Mediation as a Final Settlement in Bankruptcy Disputes

Bujang Ali, Mella Ismelina Farma Rahayu, Rasji 

Volume 8  |  Issue 4 |  Pages: 1456-1462 | PDF | HTML   

 

Abstract: This study seeks to examine the concept of final mediation in the settlement of bankruptcy disputes as a form of alternative dispute resolution which has been opted by the disputing parties outside of court. The study used a normative legal research approach by investigating legal rules, legal principles, and legal doctrines to answer the legal problems faced. The results of the study show that the mediation is only a voluntary option as the Supreme Court’s Decree on Bankruptcy does not require any mediation in the settlement. It will be argued that the process of mediation is cheaper, faster, and simpler than the settlement process through the court. The implementation of mediation as a final settlement in bankruptcy disputes is a form of a person's civil rights that must be respected and upheld high as a form of agreement and contract made in accordance with Article 1320 in conjunction with Article 1338 of the Civil Code. The principle is an embodiment of the philosophy of natural law stipulating that rationally human being is given the right to freedom to perform acts. The final mediation for the settlement of bankruptcy disputes should be based on a peace agreement made by both creditors and debtors in good faith with reference to articles 1851, 1858 of the Civil Code and article 1338 in conjunction with article 1320 of the Civil Code. Thus, the study suggests that it is necessary to establish a national private mediation institution by the government or by the competent authorities.

Abstract: Education has acquired a strictly focused nature, which is associated with the need to form reliable partnerships between universities and potential employers. This type of partnership is called social. The purpose of the study is to consider the problem of organizing social partnership, which is aimed to restore the focus of the activities of music education institutions on the results and values of education – the formation of students’ most important social, intellectual, and moral qualities and skills. The basis of the work comprises theoretical and practical research methods in the fields of management, sociology, economics, history, musical pedagogy, psychology, and cultural studies, as well as statistical data collection and analysis, observation, and forecasting. The main results of the study are that all five functions of the management system in the field of education, including professional music education, – forecasting, planning, and organizing activities, teamwork coordination, personnel training, monitoring and evaluation of the quality of educational services – are closely related to a specific product (a specialist in the field of musical art and pedagogy) and its promotion to the consumer (institutions of arts and culture, general and additional education institutions). Conclusions: Management in the field of education is primarily based on the grounds, goals, objectives, and principles shared with the social partner. These goals and objectives provide the focus that should determine the management of educational institutions.

Abstract: The purpose of the article is to assess the level of investment security in the region using the example of Crimea. All indicators of investment security must brought into a comparable form to calculate the integral indicator of investment security in the region. This requires standardization and comparison of the obtained numerical values of each indicator with its normative value. We calculate the integrated indicators for each group of indicators, and then we obtain the general integrated indicator of investment security. The resort and tourism sector, agriculture, construction, industry and the fuel and energy sectors are the most attractive for investors. The gross regional product (GRP) and the volume of investments in fixed assets in Crimea increased in 2014-2017. The largest share in the structure of investments in fixed assets occupied by investments in buildings and structures. Relatively small amounts in Crimea invested in housing stock. First, the Crimean economy grows; the debt burden on the region’s economy has sharply increased in 2016-2017. Second, crime decreased in 2016-2017. Third, investment in fixed assets is increasing; there is a decrease in the investment potential of the region at its own expense, but the region does not have enough foreign investment and there is a lack of investment in research. Fourth, there is a slowdown in the processes of capacity building and expansion of production, since the coefficients of renewal and retirement of fixed assets have decreased, while the fixed assets of the Crimea worn out and require updating.

This research method is qualitative with socio-legal approach as a basis for the formation of non-consuming green seashell. The results showed that green mussels have the advantage of being a bio filter because they are able to filter water contaminated with heavy metals. Its ability shows that 1 kilogram of green mussels can filter water as much as 10 liters/hour. Testing results in the sea water in Kamal Muara and Cilincing in 2019 showed that the heavy metal content of lead (Pb) and cadmium (Cd) and mercury (Hg) did not meet the standards of the Minister of Environment Decree Number 179 of 2004. The test results at the ordinate point of the sampling location Kamal Muara S604’41, 16972”/E106044’24,00684” (Station I) showed an increase in Pb of 0.052 mg/l, making it very appropriate as the basis for non-consumed green seashell cultivation area as this species was able to be an environmentally friendly bio filter.

Abstract: The article is devoted to the study of anti-corruption declaration in Ukraine, which is at the stage of institutionalization and practical improvement. The aim of the article is to establish possible ways to increase the effectiveness of the anti-corruption declaration mechanism, taking into account socio-economic conditions based on the use of international experience in this process; to define a single concept of the humanization of the financial control and identify specific recommendations for reforming the existing system of anti-corruption mechanism in Ukraine. In carrying out this study, general and special methods of scientific knowledge were used: the system analysis method, the dialectic method, the formal logical method and the structural-functional method, as well as a number of empirical methods. The authors came to the conclusion that the mechanism of anti-corruption declaration in Ukraine was formed taking into account the socio-economic prerequisites for counteracting corruption and international trends in the implementation of financial control. To increase the positive effect of the introduction of anti-corruption declaration, it is important to know the approach chosen for exercising financial control over the subjects of public administration. The article may be useful for the relevant subjects of public administration for the further improvement of socially sensitive anti-corruption tools. It may also be useful for researchers of social and legal processes related to the development of civil society. An analysis of the processes of management transformation in the country and in the world facilitated to identify problems that require special attention and find solutions for the implementation of project activities to create a modern management structure for electronic filing of declarations. The novelty and originality of the study lies in the fact that the article reveals the fundamental determinants of anti-corruption declaration taking into account the development trends of public administration.

Irina Mikhailovna Dzyubuk

Volume 8  |  Issue 4 |  Pages: 1510-1515 | PDF | HTML  

 

Abstract: The results of the long-term ichthyological studies of the southwestern part (the Sheltozero – Brusno region) of the Onega Lake performed as part of the environmental monitoring have been presented. This is one of the most productive and clean areas in the lake. The fish population of the southwestern part of the Onega Lake includes 20 fish species that are representatives of 10 families belonging to six faunistic complexes. By the number of the species, the Carp family dominates. By the number of the species in this area of the lake, the Arctic freshwater, the boreal plain, and the boreal foothill complexes are equally important. The species of the freshwater Pontian, the Arctic marine, and the ancient Late Tertiary complexes together amount to no more than 25 % of the total population. In the southwestern region of the lake, there are many valuable commercial species (freshwater salmon (Salmo salar Linnaeus, 1758), lavaret (Coregonus lavaretus lavaretus (Linnaeus, 1758)), pikeperch (Sander lucioperca (Linnaeus, 1758)), pike (Esox lucius Linnaeus, 1758), etc. Smelt (Osmerus eperlanus (Linnaeus, 1758)) and vendace (Coregonus albula (Linnaeus, 1758)) are the most commercially valuable (75 – 85 %). The population-ecological analysis has shown a relatively good state of most studied fish species. For maintaining the existing structure and state of the fish population in the southwestern part of the Onega Lake, a set of measures is required, including the preservation and improvement of the fish habitat, the conditions for the fish reproduction and feeding; toughening the protective measures during periods with a decrease in the number of fish species; regulation of fishing, and increasing the amount of fish artificial reproduction, rearing, and releasing into the lake.

Abstract: :The relevance of the study of the insurance market is associated with the strengthening of its role in increasing the level of social protection of the population, increasing the volume of investments in the development of the state economy, as well as exempting the state budget from additional costs for reimbursing losses from unforeseen events. Without insurance market development, it is impossible to ensure the safety of the socio-economic development of the state, the continuity of the functioning of business actors, improving the population welfare and many other guarantees that compensate for the effects of the current risks of environment. The aim of the work is to determine the features of the development of the insurance market in Russia, as well as to identify problems and prospects of its functioning in order to increase the level of social protection of the population. We use modern general scientific and special research methods, including deduction, induction, analysis, synthesis, abstraction, generalization, system analysis, comparison. Currently, the Russian insurance market actively reformed in accordance development strategy; however, due to the crisis processes in the economy, the full implementation of measures is somewhat difficult. The conjuncture of the insurance market is quite sensitive to fluctuations of economy; therefore, in the future its development will depend on economic and political factors, external and internal threats. Many problems solution depends on the use of modern insurance technologies (InsurTech), which combine traditional insurance methods and IT innovations. New approaches require preliminary pilot implementation with subsequent scaling, and legal regulation, the development of digital law in Russia.

Hesham Almomani, Omar Naser Almutairi

Volume 8  |  Issue 4 |  Pages: 1556-1562 | PDF | HTML  

Abstract: To meet the requirements of 21st century, Kuwait ministry of public works have realized that they should use modern technologies and management system to face challenges of modern world. So, they maintenance Administration has launched a massive program which helps to meet development needs and helps to maintain the infrastructure’s sustainable growth. Thus, it is very necessary to develop appropriate bridge maintenance strategies to meet serviceability criteria and life cycle cost optimization of new bridges. And main purpose was to meet the requirements of development needs. Bridge management system (BMS) is a software or we can say a management tool which helps us to maintain or manage the bridges. These are the following main points which helps decision makers to make a best decision. Defines bridge condition, identifies bridge needs for like if we need replacement of any material or renovation can be identified by BMS, cost of bridge during maintenance and management of the bridge, identifies bridges for Replacement and rehabilitation programs (MR & R) and also identifies for the assessment of bridges. According to replacement and rehabilitation programs minor changes or maintenance of the bridges is done by Work management system (WBS). This paper proposes a framework that can enhance the effectiveness of Kuwait’s Integrated Maintenance Management System (KIMMS). A survey for bridge contractors around the world was used as the research method for this study. This contains questions regarding their current bridge management system (BMS) and what are the input and output parameters it considers in the process. BIM (Bridge information modeling) technology is used to reduce the errors in designing and construction of the bridges by using BMS, BRIDGE OWNER may have a sustainability in the maintenance and enhancement of its bridge. We can determine the cash flow to be used in future for the replacement and repairment of bridge. It helps to adopt maintenance program to maintain life-cycle costs for the community. Helps to review the replacement and rehabilitation strategies. Helps to improve the economic life of infrastructure assets. After evaluating the BMSs used by the respondents, it turned out that the most effective procedure should have three main processes to be followed; maintenance planning, maintenance optimization, and maintenance decision support. Overall, the conceptualized framework considers an optimized procedure for maintenance management considering the balance in cost and quality of the process.

Abstract: Multifunctional anion exchangers based on aromatic amines, epichlorohydrin and polyethylenimine have been synthesized. Their composition, structure, and thermal stability have been studied using IR spectroscopy, elemental and thermogravimetric analyses. Extraction of strontium ions has been studied using classical polarography, and sorption of strontium (II) ions in static regime has been determined as a function of solution acidity, metal ion concentration, and contact duration of ionites with SrCl2 solution. It has been established that the obtained ion exchangers are characterized by high sorption properties with regard to strontium ions. The novelty of these studies is that the sorption dependence of synthesized ionites with regard to Sr2+ ions has been studied for the first time. The practical importance of this work is the development of anion exchangers with higher extractability, which could successfully solve the issues of elimination of strontium (II) ions from process wastes of nonferrous metallurgy.

Volume 8  |  Issue 4 |  Pages: 1574-1580 | PDF | HTML  

 

 Abstract: The article analyzes legal changes in the field of municipal solid waste management in Russia and considers situations that have already arisen and will arise in the future in connection with the need to qualify certain acts as offenses under the new legislation. In this regard, the authors of the article became the first to identify the problems relevant to many former Soviet republics. They have developed solutions that can be used by countries that experience similar difficulties. To reform the above-mentioned sphere, it is necessary to introduce new actors into the field of waste management and, accordingly, into the area of legal responsibility in case of non-fulfillment or improper fulfillment of their duties. The article examines the responsibility, rights and obligations of the parties to such relations. The authors have concluded that the legislator should clearly define possible violations and types of their punishment. The article also pays attention to such parties involved in waste management as "landowners". However, the list of possible violators cannot be denoted in such a way since not all owners of land plots with residential real estate are full-fledged owners of these plots. Some of them lease land plots or have limited property rights. As landowners, they should be recognized as parties to relations in the field of municipal solid waste management. One more issue which is especially relevant for the former Soviet republics is to determine an entity responsible for the collection and removal of waste from land plots, whose ownership is unclear. The article claims that responsibility for cleaning the territory of a land plot should be assigned to local authorities at the location of this contaminated land plot.

Abstract: Real-time management becomes a necessary condition for the sustainable development of economic entities in the context of uncertainty. Regional development of the territory includes the creation of clusters to stimulate economic development. The scenario forecasting of the sustainable functioning of economic entities, as well as a proactive risk-oriented approach to strengthening positive trends and reducing negative consequences in the course of implementing decisions, are an important task. Monitoring as a means of conducting continuous gap analysis is an important tool for such management. The authors develop a phenomenological approach to project management in the context of instability and uncertainty of the business environment, to quantum thinking, dynamic planning, and control in the extreme project management.

Abstract: Recently, there have been profound social, political and economic changes in Europe, associated with a huge influx of refugees. The relevance of the studied language problem is connected with the changes that took place in Germany which have influenced the state, political parties and the population’s attitude towards refugees, and, in particular, the presentation of the unresolved problems of the hosting and integration of refugees in the publicist discourse. About four years have passed since the crisis began, however, many topics still cause controversy and discussion, which in turn is reflected in the press. The article aims to analyse the tonality of the concept “Refugee” in the German mass-media discourse of different political content. The leading method of the research is the sentiment analysis of the studied concept “Refugee” using sentiment dictionaries and considering articles from liberal (Die Tageszeitung (Taz)), conservative (Deutschland Kurier) and social-democratic newspapers (Stern). As a result of the analysis, it has been found that the social-democratic Stern is the newspaper with the most negative tonality with the arithmetic average of 0.184. The liberal newspaper Die Tageszeitung (Taz) has depicted the refugee crisis with more positive publications with the arithmetic average of 0.374. The conservative newspaper Deutschland Kurier, with the arithmetic average of 0.269, is in the middle. During the analysed period, Stern has 58% negative, 40.3% positive and 1.34% neutral publications. Taz has 53% positive and 47% negative publications, without any neutral articles at all. Deutschland Kurier has more negative materials (57%) than neutral (28%) and positive materials (15%). The materials of the article can be applied in linguistics, stylistics and lexicology of the Russian and German languages; in linguistic regional geography and intercultural communication. The method of dictionary-based sentiment analysis may find further application of the political discourse tonality analysis.

Abstract: The Thai government has launched a policy on the community economy development for local community enterprises. Unfortunately, a majority of community enterprise groups were not successful due to the members’ lack of participation in managerial administration. Therefore, this research emphasizes the participatory and rationale factors affecting the participation of Chiwavitee Community members in Nam Kian Sub-district, Phu Phiang District, Nan Province in 4 aspects, namely: decision making, implementation, benefit sharing, and evaluation. Questionnaires were employed for data collection from 256 community enterprise’s members. The obtained data were analyzed by using descriptive and inferential statistics. The results revealed that, almost two-third (64.50%) of groups’ members were female, with an average age of 44.05, graduated at the vocational certificate and advanced vocational certificate level (34.00%). The members engaged in agriculture and general employment (35.90%, and 35.20% respectively). More than one-half (54.70%) of the members received marketing information of community enterprises. They had moderately high level of attachment among members, and participation of activities with other groups or organizations (= 4.49, and = 4.49 respectively). As a whole, they had moderately high level (= 3.87) of business operational success, as well as had high level (= 4.53) of participation in managerial administration. Moreover, the study found 7 main rationale factors affecting participation in managerial administration of members which were gender, age, educational attainment, occupation, receiving informational of marketing in community enterprise management, attachment among members, and participation of activities with other groups or organizations.

Managing Complexity and Resource-Based Strategy Cases in the Implementation of Food Security Policy in Indonesia

 Novayanti Sopia Rukmana S, Alwi, Gita Susanti

Volume 9  |  Issue 1 |  Pages: 1618-1624 | PDF | HTML   

Abstract: The main objective of this study is to explain managing complexity through the resource-based view as a strategy for the implementation of food security policy. Because the study so far still focused on the form, type, and its dimensions. The study uses a qualitative design and case study strategy to explain the implementation of food security policy. Techniques of data collection used were observation, depth-interviews, and documentation. Based on the matching patterns and time series analysis, managing the complexity of resource sharing in the implementation of food security policy is not effective. This happens because the resources owned by them are not integrated through the governance network. Besides, the governance network organization does not have a clear vision, so they also behave in a changing manner and controlling their resources. This is shown by each government agency controlling the funds for this program and the extension workers do not have the necessary expertise in the food diversification, rice, and animal food programs. Therefore, resource sharing strategies that have value, rareness, imperfect imitability, and organization can achieve successful implementation of this policy.  

Keywords: Managing complexity, resource-based strategy, implementation policy, and food security policy
