Introduction on Design of Enterprise University System Based on Functional Perspectives  [PDF]
Keying Chen
American Journal of Industrial and Business Management (AJIBM) , 2019, DOI: 10.4236/ajibm.2019.91002
Abstract: This paper tries to explore the general ways and methods in designing enterprise universities system from the four functions of enterprise universities, strategic promotion, personnel training, knowledge management and resource integration, so as to provide more directions and paths for the future development of enterprise universities. Rapid development and rapid product iteration have become the current development status of all walks of life. In this context, the cultivation of talents has been paid more and more attention by business managers. Many enterprises begin to think about the significance of employee training and talent development. Enterprise universities, as important carriers of enterprise learning, focus on strategies and serve enterprises. Compared with traditional enterprise training in the past, they are more strategic, integrated and autonomous. Through their unique operation modes and more systematic ways of personnel training, they are favored by more and more Chinese enterprises.
Functional Perspectives on Emotion, Behavior, and Cognition
Heather C. Lench,Kathleen E. Darbor,Logan A. Berg
Behavioral Sciences , 2013, DOI: 10.3390/bs3040536
Abstract: This Editorial reviews the challenges and advantages posed by a functional perspective on the relationships among emotion, behavior, and cognition. We identify the core themes among the articles published as part of this Special Issue. The articles generally address two important questions: (1) are emotions functional and what is their impact on behavioral and cognitive processes, and (2) how do the interactions among emotion, cognition, and behavior play out in particular situations that present adaptive challenges? We also identify two core questions raised by the articles included in this Special Issue. Future research must address the extent to which emotions are best represented as discrete emotional constructs (e.g., anger, sadness, fear) versus emotions that vary along dimensions, such as valence and arousal. Functional perspectives would also be facilitated by identification of situations or environments that are likely to elicit particular emotions and reactions.
Propolis in Dogs: Clinical Experiences and Perspectives (A Brief Review)  [PDF]
Nelly Tovar Betancourt, Lucila García-Contreras, Tonatiuh Alejandro Cruz Sánchez
Open Journal of Veterinary Medicine (OJVM) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ojvm.2015.51002
Abstract: In light of the scarcity of novel therapeutic agents that are effective, the pharmaceutical industry has found a newer source of therapeutic compounds in natural products and herbal medicine to address the current health problems in humans and animals. What is particularly promising about these agents is that they produce fewer side effects and are more cost effective than synthetic compounds. This means greater availability of these treatments particularly for less developed countries who can’t afford expensive treatments. The reduced side effects also mean greater patient tolerance and increased compliance thereby yielding maximal therapeutic effect without negatively impacting on quality of life. Among the natural products more frequently employed nowadays is propolis, a resin that is routinely collected by bees (Apis mellifera). Propolis contains flavonoids, caffeic acid esters and diterpenic acids, which provide the bactericidal, antiviral and antifungal properties to this product. The use of propolis to address a variety of conditions in small animal species is beginning to play an important role in the currently available treatments. Its use appears to be an effective treatment with no side effects at low cost. This paper reviews the different applications of this compound to treat diseases in dogs.

Menopausal transition and postmenopausal health problems: a review on its bio-cultural perspectives  [PDF]
Shailendra Kumar Mishra
Health (Health) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/health.2011.34041
Abstract: This paper documents health problems faced by menopausal and postmenopausal women. These women constitute a sizable proportion of India's population though there exist no health care programmes to cater their specific health needs and health vulnerabilities arose due to menopausal transition. Researchers have generally tried to determine age at menopause and a few have explored psychosomatic problems experienced by them. Abrupt changes in hormone levels among women generally bring out several physical infirmities which have hardly been the interest of research. Studies on menopausal and postmenopausal health problems and their bio-cultural correlates are warranted. Efforts should be made to understand the process of aging among women in relation to menopausal transition. Cross-cultural differences in coping mechanisms to minimise the health problems arose due to menopausal transition are important to study. This review argues provision of culturally appropriate health care programs to facilitate easier menopausal transition and to ensure healthy postmenopausal life for women.
Directors’ Conflicts of Interest: Different European Legal Perspectives  [PDF]
Gloria Esteban De La Rosa, Jovan Shopovski
Beijing Law Review (BLR) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/blr.2013.44022

The well-known term “conflicts of interest” could be found in different societal areas. It usually has the same meaning and alludes on situations where a natural person or an organization is involved in multiple interests. This set of circumstances creates risks that professional judgment or a decision will be influenced by a secondary interest. This article will mainly focus on theoretical treatment of the conflict of interest in the company law area and its application in different legal systems. Only company’s directors (management of the company) and supervisory board conflicts of interest will be relevant to this work. Different legislatives’ provisions will be analyzed. Various legal perspectives, circumstances and legal actions related to the directors’ conflicts of interest will be presented. Apart from the binding norms, provisions included in different “good governance codes” will be also analysed.

Health (Health) , 2019, DOI: 10.4236/health.2019.112016
Abstract: Introduction: Environmental health is a rapidly evolving field, and professionals working in this field have to deal with increasingly complex environmental and public health concerns. Consequently, their skill development is a key component in ascertaining their abilities to match work requirements to the satisfaction of their employers. Training and education of these professionals requires involvement of the relevant stakeholders to apt their technical skills in preparation of the role to be undertaken. Thus, the universities and other institutions of higher learning, in their efforts to improve graduate output should understand the labor market. Additionally, due to constant transformation and reorganization of strategies and plans by practitioner organizations, employers’ perspective in assessing graduates’ abilities and performance is necessary. Aim: The purpose of this study was to assess the employers’ perspectives on the graduates’ abilities to handle work demands. Methods: A cross sectional descriptive study design involving employers and graduates of environmental health program of Moi University using mixed methods was carried out. Pretested semi structured paper questionnaires were administered to 45 employers, while online survey was carried out on 227 sampled graduates. In-depth interviews were further subjected to the graduates to corroborate issues raised. Quantitative data analysis was done using statistical package for social scientists (SPSS) version 20 where the data was summarized using frequencies and proportions. Qualitative data was thematically analyzed. Results: The overall employer assessment of the graduates’ abilities to handle work demands was satisfactory with 18 (46.1% 7 of the employers rating them as good). On self-assessment, 116 (61.7%) of the graduates reported not to have faced any skills competency challenge at their work place and only 57 (30.3%) reported adequacy in skills acquired during undergraduate training. From the in-depth interviews, the graduates applauded the current curriculum implementation strategy of Problem Based Learning (PBL) but faulted the infrastructural inadequacies for low competencies and inadequate skills. The in-depth interviews further revealed a picture of graduates struggling with skills’ mismatch in their job placement. Conclusion: The study revealed a good rating by employers on the graduates’ competency skills but a high proportion (69.7%) of graduates reported lack of adequate skills to match

Economia Global e Gest?o , 2011,
Abstract: this article presents the results of a study in which we interviewed 12 brazilian women in leadership positions in organizations, aged 25 to 45. the resulting texts were submitted to a discourse analysis, according to the following categories: motherhood and family life; career; conciliating career and maternity; career development and leadership style. for all our interviewees both family and work were considered a ?priority? in their lives and maternity was seen as a fundamental part of women?s lives, something that gives them a sense of completeness. conciliating career and maternity, although difficult, was seen as not only possible but also as desirable. regarding women?s performance at work, the interviewees mentioned the existence of discrimination against women, though often veiled, especially in relation to the highest functions, such as that of ceo. finally, our data point to the fact that it is harder for women to prove their competence and efficiency so as to reach the highest positions and that, in general, women are more worried about the functioning of the team, have more sensibility to deal with subordinates, better communication skills and have a greater ability to manage different tasks simultaneously than men.
