The Role of International Entrepreneurship Capability on International Performance in Born Global Firms  [PDF]
Azizallah Roudini, Mohd. Hassan Mohd. Osman
iBusiness (IB) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ib.2012.42015
Abstract: More than two decades, international entrepreneurship (IE) has come out as a distinct academic discipline, and that concentrates on firms that become international from inception or near after it. However, comparatively little is known about the international entrepreneurship (IE), its capability and what drives the international performance of these firms with early and rapidly internationalizations. Therefore, the objective of the investigation is to reveal the dimensions of international entrepreneurial capability (IEC) and its effect on international performance (IP) in born global firms. The study will give an instruction to the born global (BG) managers, vision and strategy to the policymakers, and introduce the effectiveness role of international entrepreneurship capability (IEC) on international performance.

Zarina Salleh,Mohd Hassan Mohd Osman
Jurnal Kemanusiaan , 2007,
Abstract: This study examines goal orientations of women entrepreneurs as owners of smaller firms and presents a typology of women entrepreneurs based on this aspect. The samples are women owners of small-size firms in Malaysia. A sequential mixed method was adopted for the study. Primary data were collected using a self administered questionnaire that was distributed through mail survey, followed by personal interview for case study purposes. Result of the survey shows that in general women have higher economically inclined motives for venturing into business. Four types of women entrepreneurs are identified in the case study based on their goal orientations.
Information Content in Dividend Announcements, a Test of Market Efficiency in Malaysian Market
Ali Sheikhbahaei,Mohd. Hassan Mohd. Osman,Ismail Abd Rahman
International Business Research , 2012, DOI: 10.5539/ibr.v5n12p38
Abstract: This study investigates the market reaction to the changes in dividend announcements at the Malaysia stock exchange formally called Bursa Malaysia. Data is gathered for a sample of 356 dividend announcement made by 138 firms pined in the main market between the years 2008 to 2011. The results show that the market reacts positively to dividend increasing stocks but no significant react to the constant dividend or the decreasing group of dividend announcements. It was also observed from the information in a day prior to the announcement day that there is a probable leakage of information by the excess access to the insider information of the firms.
Poly(Acrylamide-Co-Acrylic Acid)-Zinc Acetate Polymer Electrolytes: Studies Based on Structural and Morphology and Electrical Spectroscopy  [PDF]
Mohd Faiz Hassan, Siti Zulaikha Mohd Yusof
Microscopy Research (MR) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/mr.2014.22005

Solid polymer electrolytes (SPEs) of polyacrylamide-co-acrylic acid (PAA) as the polymer host and zinc acetate (ZnA) as an ionic dopant were prepared using a single solvent by the solution casting technique. The amorphous and crystalline structures of film were investigated by X-ray diffraction (XRD). The surface morphology of samples was examined by scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The composition and complex formation of films were characterized by Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy. The conductivity of the PAA-ZnA films was determined by electrochemical impedance spectroscopy. According to the XRD and FTIR analyses, all electrolyte films were in amorphous state and the existence of interaction between Zn2+ cations and the PAA structure confirms that the film was successfully prepared. The SEM observations reveal that the electrolyte films appeared to be rough and flat with irregularly shaped surfaces. The highest ionic conductivity (σ) of 1.82 × 10-5 Scm-1 was achieved at room temperature (303 K) for the sample containing 10 wt % ZnA.

A Proposed Engine Implementation Mechanism to Execute the Code of Relations Query/View/Transformation Language
Mohammed Abdalla Osman Mukhtar,Mohd Fadzil B Hassan,Mohamed Nordin B. Zakaria
ARPN Journal of Systems and Software , 2011,
Abstract: Depending on our best knowledge and despite of the well documentation of the transformation language Query/View/Transformation QVT-Relation which is used as a tool in Model Driven Architecture (MDA) technique that provided by Object Management Group (OMG), there is still no specific description about the execution engine for the QVT-Relations (QVT-R) Transformation Language because the aim of MDA technique is to separate the system implementation from the system description. In this paper we will divide the QVT-R code to parts in order to provide a proposed description about the implementation (execution) model of QVT-Relation Language, first part is about the method of instantiation to generate instances of the target model using Warren s Abstract Machine (WAM), and the second part is about the sequence of the code execution using the directed graph.
Defining Concepts of Student Engagement and Factors Contributing to Their Engagement in Schools  [PDF]
Manisah Mohd Ali, Noorfaziha Hassan
Creative Education (CE) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2018.914157
Abstract: Student engagement has been widely studied and has been linked to success in academic achievement. This paper focuses on contextualizing student engagement in classroom by discussing the different definition based on previous related studies on student engagement. It will answer questions on the different definitions on student engagement have been developed in previous studies and what are the factors contributing to students’ engagement in classrooms. It is found that good engagement is defined by the quality of engagement shown in relation to the kind and context of attachment. Three factors related to a good engagement were identified which are family factor, school factor and peer factor. This paper implies on the need for support from different parties for positive student engagement in schools.
Managing Road Maintenance Using Geographic Information System Application  [PDF]
Mohd Zulkifli B. Mohd Yunus, Hamidah Bt. Hassan
Journal of Geographic Information System (JGIS) , 2010, DOI: 10.4236/jgis.2010.24030
Abstract: The development and economic growth of a nation is closely related to its available transportation system. Good and efficient road transport infrastructure facilities will promote industrial and socio-economic development. To provide safety and comfort to road users, a comprehensive road maintenance schedule must be formulated and adopted to ensure those roads are in good condition at all times. Preventive maintenance works, such as road rehabilitation will help to reduce the major road repairs and expenditure. Prior to this, a good database, gathered through GIS will be necessary in order to ensure maintenance is done effectively. Geographic Information System (GIS) is said to be one of the useful tools that can be utilized to manage database in road maintenance engineering. This system is capable of storing, managing, analyzing, computing and displaying all forms of geographical data for road maintenance works. In this study, the author has adopted GIS application software – ArcView, and has reviewed and analyzed its effectiveness in managing road database. These data are then used to assist the management to ensure effective and systematic road maintenance. A typical model of roads in Penang, Malaysia is used as a case study to further clarify the application of GIS in road maintenance.

Feed-Forward Artificial Neural Network Model for Air Pollutant Index Prediction in the Southern Region of Peninsular Malaysia  [PDF]
Azman Azid, Hafizan Juahir, Mohd Talib Latif, Sharifuddin Mohd Zain, Mohamad Romizan Osman
Journal of Environmental Protection (JEP) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/jep.2013.412A1001

This paper describes the application of principal component analysis (PCA) and artificial neural network (ANN) to predict the air pollutant index (API) within the seven selected Malaysian air monitoring stations in the southern region of Peninsular Malaysia based on seven years database (2005-2011). Feed-forward ANN was used as a prediction method. The feed-forward ANN analysis demonstrated that the rotated principal component scores (RPCs) were the best input parameters to predict API. From the 4 RPCs, only 10 (CO, O3, PM10, NO2, CH4, NmHC, THC, wind direction, humidity and ambient temp) out of 12 prediction variables were the most significant parameters to predict API. The results proved that the ANN method can be applied successfully as tools for decision making and problem solving for better atmospheric management.

Syahida Hassan,Mohd Khairudin Kasiran
Communications of the IBIMA , 2008,
Abstract: The concept of trusted services forms a key issue for any kind of electronic services. Third Party Certification (TPC) endorsement has been used as one of the methods to instill consumers’ trust. Creating initial trust through implementation of TPC is very important because the consumer has a tendency to trust brand names.. This paper looked closely at the implementation of the TPC in Malaysia which reveals that there are many problems related to the implementation of these seals. Problems like the awareness of merchants on the important of third party seals to their business, unverifiable endorsement, misleading link, unauthorized use of logos and no endorsement at all are still there in Malaysian environment. Based on this fact, the paper will focus on how far the implementation of third TPC is complied with X.509 certification standard. The output of this study can give an important background on the current implementation of TPC and be used as a basis of initial evaluation for business opportunity as a service provider for this kind of certification in Malaysia
