The purpose of the present study is to identify the association of age group regarding preference of a particular cellular service. In the era of globalization and information society, the fundamental role of telecommunication technologies cannot be underestimated. Pakistan’s mobile Industry is a dynamic and highly competitive market. Pakistan has the highest mobile penetration rate in the region. Cellular service subscribers are at 91.44 million growing @ 0.5%, and Cellular Mobile Density is 56.80 as of March 2009. As a result of unstable political situation and weakening macroeconomic indicators the growth in cellular segment has considerably slowed down. Thus, it is of growing concern to look at consumer buying decision process and shed light on the factors that finally determine consumer choices between different cellular services brands. For the purpose of our study five cellular service companies in Pakistan namely Mobilink, Ufone, Warid, Telenor, and Zong are selected. The findings provide that preference of a particular cellular service by a consumer is not independent of age group and it is concluded that there is some association exist i.e. preference of a particular cellular service by a consumer is dependent on age group.
The popularity of Globalization of Education in the Philippines advances various ways to align our existing educational system with the world. It will eventually open a channel that will benefit our education in a positive way, sooner than we think it is possible that in the future we will begin to gauge our curriculum according to world standard. There is no way but to go forward to the Globalization – If we want to survive in a very competitive world.
Today, education in remote areas falls far short of that in modern cities. The poor educational level in these remote areas deeply affects the improvement of society in these areas, the development of the economy and the overall improvement of our entire society.
As stated in Jennifer Jenkins’s article entitled “Implementing an International Approach to English Pronunciation: The role of Teacher Attitudes and Identity” published in TESOL QUARTERLY, Vol. 39, No. 3 in September 2005, she carried out a research into the role of nonnative speaker (NNS) teachers’ attitudes and identity toward English accents so as to take a look at the feasibility of an English as a lingua franca (ELF) approach. The only method used in this research is interviewing. All the interviews which followed a pattern of twelve prompt questions were recorded, and discussed under three major themes: Accent Attitudes, Effects of Experiences and Teaching ELF Accents. Jenkins (2005) states that all eight NNES teachers interviewed were ambivalent regarding their attitudes toward their own English accent and their desire for native-like accent. The author goes on to say that every interviewee could recount at least one bad experience in English that had influenced the interviewee’s orientation of English accent. Additionally, she says that most interviewees said they would be happy to teach their students ELF accents whereas three of them showed some contradictions. The author concludes that the feasibility of an ELF needs further research.
Air (as we know it generally) is Visible to the Eyes Often I fail to understand how this simple concept could elude the greatly acclaimed minds of philosophers past. This basic thing, I would assume, should have been tackled first before we engage our minds to pore over much more complicated and onerous philosophical and scientific facts. As far as I have knowledge, none of the great thinkers gone, or those presently have delved deeper into this theme. That is why I would like to engage everyone into mulling over this issue. From here, I would then encourage everyone who is intellectually inclined to read through my arguments carefully and unhurriedly so that they can raise much more logical and deeper counter perspectives of this laborious matter. Nevertheless, I do not mean to say that these deliberations are for the boffins only; it is for everyone and anyone who is capable of rationalizing. I am personally (and definitely) not a boffin!
The students of 6th and final semester got a notice by Department of Computer Science UoB on notice board. A competition which was about, poster, project, one the spot programming that were holding on 11th October at COMSAT wah cant Islamabad. Every one feel like was going to participate there in a jiffy, but there were certain conditions from our department, which were necessary to full filling them. Department announced a test for selection. Test was very necessary for those cognition students because it was also introspection and without test it was difficult to rely on every one.
Teaching in an urban environment is a unique experience, especially in a city like New York where individuals emanate from many backgrounds and cultures. Teaching in a multicultural setting has both its rewards and challenges. Having students from various parts of the world creates a classroom of diversity and global awareness. However, if not properly trained to adapt and teach to a style that is effective and relatable to the entire array of students, the task can prove to be challenging for future teachers and damaging to their students.
Diversity is a very important trend in education. Diversity is a commitment to recognizing and appreciating the variety of characteristics that make individuals unique in an atmosphere that promotes and celebrates individual and collective achievement (Bauman & Dillion). As time goes on, diversity is more prevalent in the classroom. There are more minorities such as Hispanics, African Americans and Asians in American classrooms than ever. Diversity, however, does not refer only to race. The richness of inclusion has been stretched to recognize differences in age, gender, social and economic differences (Marx, 43). Diversity also includes students with disabilities. In the classroom, teachers need to be aware of differences among students in order to teach effectively to all students.
Life of poverty is like life in imprisonment. When you are in imprisonment you do not enjoy the freedom that those outside the jails enjoy. Imagine someone whose mother was convicted for a certain crime. The mother was convicted while she was still pregnant. Then later on she gave birth in the cells. From thereon the child lives in imprisonment. Such an enclosure. That is what poverty is to millions of people the world over. Probably the saying of one great philosopher holds water. The saying that,” men are borne free but everywhere they are in chains”. Maybe one of the chains would be poverty or the effects of poverty. Think of many people in the developing world where basic services such as clean water, electricity, proper clothing and accommodation are in scarcity. These are the people that Prahalad referred to as the bottom of the pyramid. The use of the word pyramid must not be taken for granted. The bottom of a pyramid is the widest of that structure or shape. And what Prahalad wanted to put across is the fact that the majority of the people in the world are the poor. According to his definition the bottom of the pyramid refers to the more than two and a half billion people who are in abject poverty. This discussion will look at the distribution of global wealth, how to eradicate poverty, how to find sustainable ecological solutions to ecological problems as well as how to make the private sector assist the poor and the vulnerable.
