Paper Title:

Cyber Bullying: An Educational Prospectus Associated With Law

Abstract: Cyber bullying has its roots in traditional bullying that takes place face to face in the real world, however cyberspace escalates the swelling thereby creating several challenges. The purpose of this paper is to upsurge the legal responsibilities in primary schools and educational institutes to curb the menace of cyberbullying and deal and heal with the cyberbullying victims. Cyberbullying is a destructive mode of social cruelty disseminated among teens and adolescents adopted due to various reasons. Placing obligation on the schools through emerging laws to abjure cyberbullying can gently instigate an anti-cyberbullying culture and hinder the problem. The core intention of the paper is to provide guidelines to aid educational institutes to embrace a mechanism to protect and minimize cyberbullying. Teens and adolescents are a delicate segment of the society hence rather than criminal liability more focus is placed on the educational institutions’ responsibilities.

Engineering Education: Indian Perspectives

Abstract: More often it has been found that students of engineering do not manage their time more proficiently and effectively in comparison of prior to higher study because all these students were very serious towards making their career in professional world at the time of schooling. Unfortunately they have become habitual of gadgeting these days. The aim of the research was to delineate the actual performance of students by focusing on the result. The situation may also have a little influence but maximum students ignores the dream of their parents and their own in an atmosphere of growing age with increasing maturity. Few may reach on the top in the real life even they were not much brilliant at the time of schooling due to some unavoidable circumstances and vice versa. The person who secured distinction in all mandatory subjects may fail to accomplish the desired goals. Finally, it makes very clear that the students who secure lower grades is not necessary that they are incapable than those who receive higher grades but often their learning abilities may be less effective.

A Study of Credit Risk in Credit Unions in Belize

Abstract: Credit Unions play an important role in providing loans to the weaker sections of the society and hence contribute to the economic development of a nation. The purpose of this study was to examine the credit risk associated with the select credit unions in Belize. The study included a survey of members of credit unions and loan officers of major credit unions in Belize.  Primary data were collected using Questionnaires, secondary were collected from the audited annual reports of credit unions and the Statistical Institute of Belize. The data were analyzed using SPSS software. The analysis showed that the credit unions exercise due care in approving loans to borrowers. The credit management system used by the credit unions includes investigation of the employment status of borrowers, identities of borrowers, legal contract to surrender salaries and other benefits against the loan, monitoring of the use of loans for the purposes being approved for and the use of shares as collateral for loans. These measures lead to the conclusion that the credit risk management policies of the selected credit unions are adequate for effective risk management. Based on these findings, recommendations were made to further tighten the credit policies of the credit unions and to increase their asset base so that they can continue to contribute to the economic development of Belize.

Corporate Entrepreneurship: A Strategic and Structural Perspective

Abstract: Corporate Entrepreneurship has been recognized as a potentially viable means for promoting and sustaining organizational performance, renewal and corporate competitiveness over the past three decades.  The entrepreneurial activities help companies to develop new businesses that create revenue streams.  Corporate Entrepreneurship activities also enhance a company’s success by promoting product and process innovations.  Corporate Entrepreneurship is embodying risk taking, pro-activeness and radical product innovations.  These Corporate Entrepreneurship activities can improve organizational growth and profitability and, depending on the company’s competitive environment, their impact may increase over time.  The empirical evidence is compelling that Corporate Entrepreneurship improves company performance by increasing the firm’s pro-activeness and willingness to take risks, and by pioneering the development of new products, process and services through enriching its competitiveness. However, the creation of corporate activity is difficult since, it involves radically changing internal organizational behaviour patterns.  Many studies have attempted to understand the factors that accelerate or impede Corporate Entrepreneurship, which examined the effect of a firm’s strategy, organization and external environment. It appears that the environment plays a profound role and influencing.  There is consensus that the external environment is an important antecedent of Corporate Entrepreneurship. Focus on the environment, the literature highlights two fire-burning questions that deserve examination.  First, how do firms that compete in different environments vary in the Corporate Entrepreneurship activities?  Second, which Corporate Entrepreneurship activities are philosophicative, processicative and conductive to superior performance in different environments?  In this backdrop, the present paper develops a theoretical foundation of these questions and emphasizing on the perceptual mapping between Corporate Entrepreneurship and strategic management in a integrating model of Corporate Entrepreneurship, giving special and unique attention to the strategic behaviour, corporate context and organizational types.
