Competition Law and Oil and Gas Sector in India: A Critical Analysis
India has been one of the major importers of crude oil in the world. The legal and regulatory framework of Oil and Gas Sector in India is a bundle of laws ranging from Oil Fields (Regulation and Development) Act 1948 to Petroleum and Natural Gas Regulatory Board Act 2006. With the recent case of Reliance Industries (2008 – 2013), Competition law of India has become one of the essential legal segments of this regulatory framework. The Petroleum and Natural Gas Regulatory Board Act 2006, through its Section 11, empowers the Regulatory Board to ensure fair trade and competition. The author through this paper wishes to explore the vital impact of Reliance Industries case on the Oil and Gas Law of India. The pertinent question which needs to be explored is whether dominance in the oil and ga

Singapore Teachers’ Perceptions of Integrating Social Values and Life Skills into Primary School Science Lessons

Singapore Teachers’ Perceptions of Integrating Social Values and Life Skills into Primary School Science Lessons
Affective learning involves learners’ emotions and belief systems. How the teacher facilitates affective learning has important implications for how enduring student learning experiences are and how parents view teacher effectiveness in school. The literature has reported that teaching and learning within the affective domain often face issues related to effectiveness, validity and teachers’ readiness-to-teach. Despite such obstacles, learning in the affective and cognitive domains remains important. Teachers often have to choose between spending time preparing students for examinations and making efforts to influence students affectively in class. Usually the former prevails. It would be helpful if teachers had an “acceptable pedagogy” to practise effectively in both domains o

Women’s Leadership and Identity in the Distance Learning Classroom

Marianne Raley, Faculty, University of Phoenix, US

Women’s Leadership and Identity in the Distance Learning Classroom
This article explores the impact of rapidly expanding distance learning opportunities on nontraditional female students. With this expansion, women who may be above traditional age, first-generation college students, working full-time jobs, or those who act as caregivers are now able to access higher education. Though these fresh learning opportunities may seem encouraging, succeeding in an online learning environment can be fraught with obstacles. These challenges may include issues related to technical proficiency, online insecurities due to previous digital harassment, difficulties balancing personal and professional demands alongside academic work, and anxiety associated with previous academic outcomes. Each of these challenges is embedded within the greater strain of developing and ma

A Study on the Development Issues of Women in Rural India

Ramya Rachel S, Assistant Professor Lady Doak College, India

A Study on the Development Issues of Women in Rural India
Women are an integral part of a society in general and form an indispensable unit of the socioeconomic life of any country. Rural women play a vital role both on social and economic front. They support their families, generate income and strive to improve the well-being of the community by and large. They are active contenders of the economy of the community. Nevertheless, they face many perpetual and tenacious constraints that hinder their development in society. This paper studies the socioeconomic conditions of women in rural areas and intends to find out the major problems faced by women, their causes and to suggest ways to solve them. It also studies the economic contribution of women in the rural areas. The area chosen for study was Vembar, Tamil Nadu, a coastal village in South Ind

Multiple Intelligence Theory in a Science Classroom: A Study to Understand Student Preferences in Relating and Understanding Fundamental Concepts in a General Chemistry Classroom
Current trends in science learning emphasize the integration of Howard Gardner’s Multiple Intelligences Theory to improve the science curricula. This paper compares the effectiveness of Linguistic, Logical-Mathematical, Bodily-Kinesthetic, Spatial-Visual, Interpersonal, and Intrapersonal intelligences from Gardner’s list of multiple intelligences in a chemistry classroom. A blend of Peer-Led Team-Learning (PLTL), online homework, laboratory, and lecture-based learning was studied to determine if the students benefit from a multi-modal approach to learning. The participants in this study included 140 City College of New York students that were enrolled in General Chemistry II (10400). The study obtained data through a Likert scale questionnaire, an open-ended survey, and individual inte

Voices From The Glass Box: Student Responses from Virtual Exchange on Gender

Voices From The Glass Box: Student Responses from Virtual Exchange on Gender
Gender discrimination, the gender pay gap, and the glass ceiling exist throughout the world but are perceived differently. Often times without a personal experience people move through life in bliss, blind to discrimination. This study focuses on language students in the U.S. interacting with international peers in Japan and Uzbekistan through virtual exchanges (VE) discussing gender discrimination and the gender pay gap.
Students in the Uzbek/U.S. VE completed a pre-survey and post-survey in Google forms and participated in an online discussion in Canvas, where the data was collected. Students in the Japanese/U.S. VE only completed the Google form pre-survey. The pre-survey asked questions about gender discrimination, and the post-survey asked the students about the course format and tec

Women of Violence: Towards a Corporal Decoloniality

Lorena Souyris, Graduate Student, Paris 8 University, France

Women of Violence: Towards a Corporal Decoloniality
This proposal interrogates the psychic elemental structures of violence (Segato, 2003) that has institutionalized the colonialism of power (Santiago Castro-Gómez, 2017: Quijano, 2000) enroll in the bodies and their practice of discrimination to women. In this regard, there have existed conditions of emergency and genealogical origin of violence that had testified, not only as unconscious structural damage but also has legitimized ways of sexual normativity relating to the women’s victimization to keep their bodies vulnerable (Butler, 2005). Furthermore, an education of vulnerability goes through the corporal territories that have been abused as a way of preserve certain “ignorance” from women to hold their lack of defense and, like this, file a figure of feminism (Dorlin, 2017).

Islamic Analysis Of ‘The Last Supper’ From Qur’an, Nt and Dead Sea Scrolls (DSS) on the Basis Of Five-Pronged Juxtaposing Approach

Rashid Iqbal, Government College University, Lahore Pakistan

Islamic Analysis Of ‘The Last Supper’ From Qur’an, Nt and Dead Sea Scrolls (DSS) on the Basis Of Five-Pronged Juxtaposing Approach
This paper shall endeavor to analyze the biblical tradition of ‘The Last Supper’ congruent with promising “Five-Pronged Juxtaposition.” Qur’anic references, New Testament, Second Temple Judaism, DSS, and Early Christianity shall be expounded and juxtaposed to delve into heterogeneous questions to envisage the happening. Did this event occur from Islamic view? Propinquity between disciples and DSS Community from the latest Biblical acknowledgment Do Qur’an and Bible expound that DSS Community attended this gathering? Any historical evidence that explicates that wrath of God fell on the sinners of the Last Supper? Is there any archaeology claiming this incident? Consistent picture from the newly built approach The aforementioned aspects become pronounced once the subject of the
