To present the essence of sustainable development education of Taiwan in museum exhibits, National Science and Technology Museum (NSTM) has been working to the best of our ability and creativity over the years. As part of government plans of promoting sustainability concept, two dedicated exhibition were curated by NSTM with different approaches. In the Achievement Exhibition of 2004, campus settings such as classrooms, campus stores, and educational gardens were designed in the exhibition hall to introduce concepts and ideas of recycling, soil permeability and water retaining capability. Unlike the precedent 2004 exhibition comprising fragments of knowledge, the "Planting Trees vs. Educating the Young: Taiwan Sustainable Campus Achievements" exhibition of 2009, systematically categorized exhibits into different sections of "Low Carbon Lifestyle and Renewable Energy Commercialization", "Healthful and Efficient Learning Environment", "Sustainable Ecosystems", and "Sustainable Campus Education", providing a more complete and systematic presentation of in a museum setting and corresponding more to the expectation of the academic circle and professionals. A survey of the visitors was also conducted through questionnaire during the 2009 exhibition to study audiences' familiarity with the topics as well as efficacy of the exhibition. Results showed that visitors did benefit from the exhibition in understanding more of the concepts of "Sustainable Campus", while the concept of sustainable energy, to certain extent, also inspired the introduction of NTSM.
On the menu of this study is the issue related to the brakes of the emergence of democracy in North Kivu province. This space has become a battlefield where is rooted chronic evil incarnate glazed societal crisis of multifaceted violence. The latter is accompanied by a procession of cruelty on human lives. This state of affairs illustrates a province in the Democratic deficits despite efforts by governments, since the results are mixed for an inculturated democracy on the North-Kivusien area of the Democratic Republic of Congo.
The iconic issue of transparency in the organization of the 2006 elections in WALIKALE territory in North Kivu in the Democratic Republic of Congo is at the heart of this debate. The result is a paradox between the qualification of the transparent elections held on this space and the observed reality that indicates the non-patent transparent, due to fraud and lack of freedom of electoral organization. This denial of transparency of these elections does not guarantee peace in Congo - Kinshasa and North Kivu in general and in particular WALIKALE.
In the globalization of the economy, we notice a high demand of the local products on the word. These products serving not only to bring to the consumer the authenticity which he demands, but to assure a sanitary quality in a local environment. Conscious of these challenges, Morocco fixed as mission to value its local products in the objective to assure a socioeconomic development of the partners and to get the main part of the value added in these regions and to encourage the ecotourism.
A geomorphologic analysis of Pande depression coupled to the gypsum deposit of Kapiri and the physico – chemistry analysis water samples and gypsum at right of site (on the Kapiri flat) has well shown that there is tight relationship within morphology of depression and his occurrence of gypsum. Hypothesis of the most plausible suggested into frame of this study that is, the occurrence gypsum of Kapiri don’t result of deposit of rock salts in solution tonic minerals upper to depth. Moreover gypsum mass to herself is inadequate as tank for assuming the flow observed before the beginning of rains. Closes relatives and nest rock crystal observed at Kapiri have been developed in compressing and in distorting flakiness of enclosing shale.
Deposits constitute draught into topography of detail and introduce clearly as supply and those supplies must pursue up to now to in judge per quantities solvated in few time on storage areas outdoors. This overview is necessarily very sketchy because it is the result of oriented research especially in a practical way.
Indigenous knowledge is the knowledge that indigenous peoples are leading their livelihood and also they learnt it from the actual practices during their day to day life. Among the different aspects of Indigenous knowledge, one is Indigenous ritual; which is conducted by indigenous peoples for very different reasons. Traditionally the Indigenous knowledge were considered as worthless and anybody have had criticizing it. But, currently the reality is promulgated by different scholars as the indigenous knowledge is very crucial in day to day life of indigenous peoples. The research methodology was mainly qualitative research method. The primary data were gathered through observation, FGDs, key informants’ interviews, questionnaire and informal conversations. Secondary sources were gathered from the district offices and internet. The Uke ritual is the indigenous ritual celebrated by children’s whose age are less than 16 years. It is the ritual celebrated with the bread anointed with butter and milk on July 5/12 E.C/July 12/19 in G.C. This ritual has a lot of purposes like commemorating the children’s day, consolidating their relationship, training them about their future career, publicizing their right, etc. The political and religious (protestant) domination faced the people during the past regimes contributed much to the weakening of Uke ritual. Here, it is also possible to say that before the commencement of Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948, the Oromo people have a culture that respects and give guarantee for human right in general and that of children’s right in particular.
Healthiness of financial system of a country depends on the success and competitiveness of financial institutions. The success and competitiveness of financial institutions are primarily realized through banks service quality, customer satisfaction and customer loyalty. Cognizant to these facts, this research was conducted to evaluate service quality, customer satisfaction and customer loyalty of commercial banks in Ethiopia. Two hundred three customers were surveyed with purposive sampling from selected commercial banks in major cities in the country. Further, the study explored the relationship among service quality, customer satisfaction and customer loyalty in Ethiopian Banking industry. The study revealed that customers are not satisfied with all dimensions of service quality of commercial banks in Ethiopia, and customers are not loyal to the banks. The study, further, confirmed that service quality, customer satisfaction and loyalty were found to be significantly correlated. Moreover, the study disclosed the existence of significant difference between private banks and public banks for the variables mentioned. The study recommends that banks in general and commercial bank of Ethiopia in particular have to improve the tangibility, reliability, responsiveness, assurance and empathy dimension of service quality in order to satisfy customers and hence to make customers loyal to banks.
This study investigates the pragmatic expressions of politeness in Kihavu. It analyzes pragmatically different expressions of politeness in accordance with the Havu culture and custom. To achieve this research, I used the documentary research, the questionnaire, the observation of gestures of politeness that accompany polite utterances, and the interviews, especially with mature speakers of Kihavu. After the analysis, the findings have revealed that polite utterances in Kihavu are culture-specific, i.e. they are specific to the Havu culture and custom, and most of them are partially gestural. Furthermore, the investigation has shown that Havu people do not use expressions of politeness randomly insofar as they have some culture-oriented goals, intentions, purposes and decisions while uttering them.
JPEG2000 is a one of the popular image compression standard. The vital part of this standard JPEG2000 is Embedded Block Boding with Optimal Truncation (EBCOT). This block conserves major part of the processing time for performing compression operation. The EBCOT block consists of two components called bit-plane coder and MQ coder. The use of Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) provides specific reprogrammable hardware technology that can be properly subjugated to obtain a reconfigurable system. The current MQ coder architecture seeks ways to provide high throughput and minimum execution time with the decreasing the size and power consumption. In this study, various techniques used to implement the MQ coder block in FPGA are compared.
