The study revealed that there is a significant positive relationship between moral judgement and family relationship of secondary school students and the study found that there is a significant difference in the moral judgement of boys and girls of secondary school students; it further revealed that aided-unaided secondary school students had higher moral judgment as compared to government-aided school students.
REPARATION OF THE MORAL PREJUDICES IN ROMANIAN LABOR LAW
AURELIAN GABRIEL ULUITU,IOANA PADURARIU
Challenges of the Knowledge Society , 2013,
Abstract: Recent decisions issued by national labor Courts contain interesting references to the problem of the moral prejudices’ reparation (especially suffered by the employee). During the application of Romanian Labor Code – Law no. 53/20031, the Courts offered a poor practice regarding the above mentioned problem. Usually, the employees’ claims having as object the material reparation of a moral prejudice caused by the employers were rejected. The Courts considered that the claims were not founded, because the employees did not prove the irregularity and/or the existence of a moral prejudice. The present paper is trying to identify the situations (as categories) which confer to the employees the right to ask for the moral prejudices’ (material) reparation and the procedural mechanism in order to obtain a favorable solution (especially from the proves necessity point of view).

Abstract: The study investigated gender and level of education as factors in quality of moral judgement among the Nigerian Police Force. A total of 167 participants comprising eighty-one (81) males and eighty-six (86) females of the Nigerian Police were drawn from Central Police Station (C.P.S), Uwani, and State CID Head Quarters, all in Enugu State. A 28 items ethical moral self inventory was administered to them to measure their quality of moral judgment. A cross-sectional survey design was used, while a 2-way ANOVA Statistics was applied to analyze the data. The findings revealed no significant influence of the two independent variables (gender and level of education). Gender: F(1,163) = .02 at p < .05; level of education: F(1,163) = .35 at p < .05, and gender interaction level of education: F(1,163) = .07 at p < .05 on quality of moral judgement among the Nigerian Police. The finding was discussed in terms of its relevance to further education, and on-the-job training and counseling.

Abstract: This research studied the basis of moral judgement of children aged 5 to7 using two series of adapted paired stories, in one of which the differencebetween the two behaviour motivations in correct degree was enlarged, andthe other of which the difference between the two behaviour results in seriousdegree was reduced. It was indicated by the results that under both circum-stances, the number of children who changed from the previous judgement onthe basis of results to the judgement on the basis of motivation reached amarked level. According to this result, it could be considered that at thisphase the children were influenced by both the behaviour result and the beha-viour motivation, but the effect of the behaviour result was much larger thanthat of the behaviour motivation. And with the increase of age, the effect ofthe result reduced and that of the motivation increased gradually. The conclu-sion about the moral judgement of children at the age of 5-7 made by Piagetshould be replenished and revised.
PERSONAL EMPIRICAL RESEARCH REGARDING DEVELOPMENT OF MORAL ATTITUDE OF ROMANIAN AND FLEMISH TEENAGERS

Acta Didactica Napocensia , 2011,
Abstract: The adolescence represents one of the most complex and unpredictable period of human life. A teenager could be considered mature from physical, intellectual or moral point of view, but not from emotional one, because he is like a “sponge” able to absorb a lot of information, care and love. On the other hand, moral behaviour could be associated with social competence to establish a good relationship with others, to help them, to cooperate in a team and to have a positive attitude regarding general society. In the following paper, we will try to analyse the moral attitude of 182 Romanian teenagers and 210 Flemish ones regarding to different life’s situations. Our conclusions are that in spite of all intercultural differences, the majority of interviewed teenagers have an honest conduct and a respect form law and moral values.

International Education Studies , 2012, DOI: 10.5539/ies.v5n3p15
Abstract: The study was conducted to assess the moral reasoning of adolescent boys and girls in the light of Gilligan theory. The main objectives of the study were to investigate the moral reasoning of adolescent boys and girls with reference to responsibility orientation versus justice orientation and to compare the frequency of adolescent boys and girls with right orientation and responsibility orientation. The population of study consisted of all adolescent boys and girls studying in SSC and F.A/FSc of Fazaia Inter College Chaklala Rawalpindi. They all were sixteen to twenty years of age. The sample of study consisted of 40 boys and 40 girls studying in Matric and F.A/FSc of Fazaia Inter College Chaklala Rawalpindi, were taken applying random sampling technique. The scale developed by Baker and Role (2002), an objective measure of the two orientations was translated into Urdu language for the collection of the data of the study. The main conclusions of the study were that adolescent girls found to be more care oriented than boys, however, they were found to be equal on justice oriented. It was also inferred that religion is the most important factor which influence the moral judgment and justice oriented approach of boys and girls. The present study partially supports Gilligan’s theory and it was also concluded that cultural norms do play an important role to make the boys more assertive to boys as compared to girls. It is expected from girls that they should be submissive, introvert and caring as compared to boys.

Journal of Obesity , 2011, DOI: 10.1155/2011/252817
Abstract: Childhood obesity is a major worldwide health problem. Intervention programs to ameliorate the rate of obesity have been designed and implemented; yet the epidemic has no end near in sight. AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) has become one of the most important key elements in energy control, appetite regulation, myogenesis, adipocyte differentiation, and cellular stress management. Obesity is a multifactorial disease, which has a very strong genetic component, especially epigenetic factors. The intrauterine milieu has a determinant impact on adult life, since the measures taken for survival are kept throughout life thanks to epigenetic modification. Nutrigenomics studies the influence of certain food molecules on the metabolome profile, raising the question of an individualized obesity therapy according to metabolic (and probably) genetic features. Metformin, an insulin sensitizing agent, its known to lower insulin resistance and enhance metabolic profile, with an additional weight reduction capacity, via activation of AMPK. Exercise is coadjutant for lifestyle modifications, which also activates AMPK in several ways contributing to glucose and fat oxidation. The following review examines AMPK's role in obesity, applying its use as a tool for childhood and adolescent obesity.
In the Name of ‘Childhood Innocence’: A Discursive Exploration of the Moral Panic Associated with Childhood and Sexuality  [cached]
Kerry Robinson
Cultural Studies Review , 2011,
Abstract: This article critically examines moral panic as a political strategy in maintaining the hegemony of the nuclear family, the sanctity of hetereosexual relationships and the heteronormative social order. It focuses on the moral panic associated with children and sexuality, particularly that which is manifested around non-heterosexual subjectivities. The discussion is based on media representations of the moral panic associated with the Play School saga, The Tillman Child Care Centre / Learn to Include booklets and the We’re Here resource. It explores the hegemonic discourses around childhood innocence, sexuality and the construction of the homosexual as ‘folk devil’ and shows how these discourses are mobilised by conservative politicians and moral entrepreneurs to strategically instigate a moral panic at critical points in time.

Exercise is coadjutant for lifestyle modifications, which also activates AMPK in several ways contributing to glucose and fat oxidation. The following review examines AMPK's role in obesity, applying its use as a tool for childhood and adolescent obesity. 1. Introduction Obesity is considered a new pathology in the history of Humankind, being the new food security tendency the one to blame for such a rising wave [1]. In the last century, technological advances and cutting edge science have modified human lifestyle, changing diet regimes and physical activity and therefor ecreating an imbalance between caloric ingestion and an energy expenditure that is not able to compensate the caloric excess ingested. This spill-over energy is accumulated in the adipose tissue manifesting itself as obesity which is considered a step closer to the new evolved man: Homo obesus [1, 2]. The World Health Organization (WHO) has labeled obesity as the new epidemic of the 21st century. According to WHO projections for 2005, around 1,600 billion adults worldwide were overweight and at least 400 million were obese; by 2015, more than 2,3 billion adults will be overweight and 700 million will be obese [3]. The values in the pediatrics population are even less encouraging, with at least 20 million overweight children of less than 5 years of age [3]. In the United States, the prevalence has risen in the last 30 years, with a 3,8-fold for the 6–11?years. old group (from 4% to 15,3%), and 2,6-fold for the adolescent group (from 6% to 15,5%) [4].

Character strengths of adolescent survivors of childhood cancer

Health SA Gesondheid , 2011,
Abstract: There is increased interest in possible positive outcomes for survivors of childhood cancer. This study investigated the manifestation of character strengths in adolescents who have survived cancer compared to that seen in healthy adolescents. The aim was to establish whether specific character strengths may be more prominent in adolescents who have survived cancer than in healthy adolescents. Two groups of participants, consisting of adolescents who have survived childhood cancer (n = 21) and a group of healthy adolescents (n = 21), were obtained through convenience sampling. They completed the Values in Action Inventory for Youth (VIAYouth) (Park & Peterson 2006) as a measure of character strengths. No significant differences were found between the character strengths of adolescents who have survived cancer and their healthy peers, unlike the findings of a similar earlier study with adults (Peterson, Park & Seligman 2006). It is concluded that the experience of serious illness such as cancer neither hindered nor enhanced the development of character strengths in this group of adolescent survivors. More research is needed to understand positive psychological functioning in the aftermath of childhood cancer. Daar is toenemende belangstelling in moontlike positiewe uitkomste vir kinders wat kanker oorleef het. Hierdie studie het ondersoek hoe karaktersterktes na vore kom in adolessente wat as kinders met kanker gediagnoseer is in vergelyking met dié in ‘n groep gesonde adolessente. Die studie het ten doel gehad om vas te stel of spesifieke karaktersterktes meer opvallend na vore kom in adolessente wat kanker oorleef het. Die deelnemers is deur middel van gerieflikheidsteekproefneming gekies. Die twee groepe het bestaan uit adolessente wat as kinders met kanker gediagnoseer is (n = 21) en ‘n groep gesonde adolessente (n = 21). Deelnemers het die Values in Action Inventory for Youth (VIA-Youth) (Park & Peterson 2006) voltooi ten einde karaktersterktes te bepaal. Daar was geen beduidende verskil tussen die karaktersterktes van die adolessente wat kanker oorleef het en die gesonde groep nie, anders as met ‘n soortgelyke vroe re studie onder volwassenes (Peterson, Park & Seligman 2006). Dit blyk dat die ervaring wat met ernstige siekte soos kanker gepaardgaan, ontwikkeling van karaktersterktes nóg bevorder nóg belemmer het in hierdie groep adolessente kankeroorwinnaars. Verdere navorsing is nodig om aspekte van positiewe sielkundige funksionering in adolessente kankeroorwinnaars te verstaan.
