SRI LANKA

Abstract:

Worker satisfaction and commitment towards work are some of the major indirect measures of the productivity of an institution. This case study attempted to assess the productivity and satisfaction of the members of the academic community of a representative academic institution in Sri Lanka. The main study areas were degrees of commitment and job satisfaction of the faculty members as a function of socio-economic pressures on their work and life. Due to heavy work load as well as the drudgery at home, academia of the university leads a very busy life. Lack of institutional support such as insufficient research funds and research infrastructure hinder their commitment towards work while unsatisfactory public services such as transport, healthcare and education have impeded their job satisfaction heavily. Results revealed a medium level of productivity, measured through the system efficiency and job satisfaction. Productivity was more contributed from teaching, compared to research and outreach activities, and the reasons were mostly institutional and non-personal. The overall view suggested the need of an immediate relief by attending to improvement needs through organizational management and macro features of the socio-economic structure which are very essential for improving the efficiency of the duties of academia and the resultant productivity of the university.

Abstract:

Cinema, which is an effective means of transmission among visual arts, feeds on many different disciplines. First of all, it can be said that cinema films are created from a whole where various designs meet on a common platform. The concepts of identity and atmosphere within this whole are decisive elements in cinematic transference.
Space is a basic area for cinema and the identity of space results in the reflection of the space in the film. The atmosphere is very important for the cinema in terms of transferring the desired emotion to the audience. 
When the concept of identity and atmosphere is combined with the discipline of cinema, which can be defined as visualizing a fictional text, a different perspective emerges. Three different types of cinema works will be discussed in this study, where the field identity and atmosphere effect in the film narrative will be explored in the created image.
In the first part of the study, the relationship between cinema and space will be examined. In the following section, the concepts of space identity and atmosphere will be defined and the effect will be explained with examples through cinema films.


Abstract:

Concerning the old or historical fabric of the cities, a widespread strategy of city vibrancy is the city cultural and creative spaces reconsideration. Creative space is a replacement to place transformation, which is a new policy to boost the potentials of the context via supporting indigenous and tourism products and activities. These spaces insist on overtaking each other to obtain a competitive advantage on cultural activities, participation, and a happier and more connected environment. Otherwise, the visitors’ participation offers economic opportunities by stimulating environment and amenities. Thus, the place expresses openness and diversity where everyone can express themselves (Florida 2002). Such an environment formed spontaneously or deliberately paves the way for the coming tourists and entrepreneurship. In this sense, in this research, Büyükada is selected due to its historical, social, cultural attributes, and commendable cultural heritage potentials including historic buildings, traditions and local cultures, which work as means to attract tourists and creative people.

Abstract:

Technological advancement has widened television forum through digital television network with its offer of burgeoned television stations worldwide. This exposure has seen teenagers who continue to value television contrary to the expectation that social media would sway them away. Both local and western television stations air loads of violent programs featuring drugs and substance abuse adverts. This situation cultivates violence in the young and developing minds whose growth is characterized by the belief that the violent virtual world is the ideal reality as violence is portrayed to solve conflicts faster. Therefore, television watching becomes a trap for a teenager which turns to an addiction of its kind. Many surveys have shown that children who spend a lot of time watching television tend to get lower grades and also engage in acts of violence in schools leading to unrest; a deplorable state of affairs given the fact that education forms the backbone of every society and civilization. Cultivation theory was used to explain how continued television viewing inculcates model behavior, specifically violent content. The study took a longitudinal approach in a span of 6 months to investigate how prolonged viewing of violent television programs would cultivate violence amongst teenagers and consequently turn to unrest in schools as a means of addressing their discontentment with school administration. The study sampled 398 students from Kiambu County in different school clusters: Single gender and mixed schools for the quantitative data and 7 school administrators for qualitative data from the different schools picked for the study.
