Corporate Governance and Intellectual Capital at Higher Learning Institution
Nor Asyiqin Abu,Akma Hidayu Dol @ Abdul wahid
Terengganu International Management and Business Journal , 2012,
Abstract: This study was conducted to examine the perception of the academicians towards intellectual capital (IC) and governance practice in Higher Learning Institution (HLI). It also examines the factors to retain the qualified academicians and the relationship between IC and corporate governance (CG) in HLI. A set of a survey questionnaire was used to gather the academicians’ opinions and beliefs of the subject matter and they were selected by using a convenience sampling. Analysis reveals that CG is the second factor influences the attraction and retention of the IC. While the foremost factor that attracts academicians to join this HLI is the possibility of the institution in giving opportunity for their academic advancement. Furthermore, the analysis shows that this HLI have implemented good governance. However, some improvement should be done in disclosure and transparency as well as integrity and trust. Finally, statistical result shows a positive relationship between IC and CG. It means, the higher the CG the higher the IC would be retained by HLI. This result is further supported by 77 percent of the respondents who do not have any intention of leaving this institution.
Corporate Governance and Intellectual Capital: Evidence from Public and Private Universities
Akma Hidayu Dol Abdul Wahid,Nor Asyiqin Abu,Wannoraini Abdul Latif,Malcolm Smith
Higher Education Studies , 2013, DOI: 10.5539/hes.v3n1p63
Abstract: This study was conducted to examine the perception of academics towards intellectual capital (IC) and governance practice at two Malaysian universities: University A (a Public University) and University B (a Private University). It also examines the factors which contribute to the retention of qualified academics and the relationship between intellectual capital (IC) and corporate governance (CG) in universities. Analysis revealed that while CG was an important factor influencing the attraction and retention of academics and IC, the major factor that attracts academics to join universities was the opportunity provided for academic advancement. While the analysis demonstrated that both universities had implemented good governance processes, there remained weaknesses: University A (public) needed to put more effort into improving the transparency and accuracy of its information system, and in providing opportunities for academics to give feedback and suggestions; University B (private) was perceived to lack appropriate support for career development, and the conduct of academic research. The results suggest a positive relationship between IC and CG so that, the higher the CG the higher the IC retained by the university. This finding is supported by the 71.1 percent of respondents who indicated that they had no serious intention of leaving their current university.

The observations made from the results are based on the comparison of Re-UCP, e-UCP and UCP models of software effort estimation.
An Energy Efficient Localization-Free Routing Protocol for Underwater Wireless Sensor Networks
Abdul Wahid,Dongkyun Kim
International Journal of Distributed Sensor Networks , 2012, DOI: 10.1155/2012/307246
Abstract: Recently, underwater wireless sensor networks (UWSNs) have attracted much research attention from both academia and industry, in order to explore the vast underwater environment. UWSNs have peculiar characteristics; that is, they have large propagation delay, high error rate, low bandwidth, and limited energy. Therefore, designing network/routing protocols for UWSNs is very challenging. Also, in UWSNs, improving the energy efficiency is one of the most important issues since the replacement of the batteries of underwater sensor nodes is very expensive due to the unpleasant underwater environment. In this paper, we therefore propose an energy efficient routing protocol, named (energy-efficient depth-based routing protocol) EEDBR for UWSNs. EEDBR utilizes the depth of sensor nodes for forwarding data packets. Furthermore, the residual energy of sensor nodes is also taken into account in order to improve the network lifetime. Based on the comprehensive simulation using NS2, we observe that EEDBR contributes to the performance improvements in terms of the network lifetime, energy consumption, and end-to-end delay. A previous version of this paper was accepted in AST-2011 conference.
Posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome as the initial presentation of acute lymphoblastic leukaemia
sfadilah abdul wahid
Journal of Hematological Malignancies , 2011, DOI: 10.5430/jhm.v1n1p49
Abstract: Posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES) is a recognized complication of chemotherapy. However, the development of PRES at presentation of acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is rare. Here we discuss the uncommon presenting feature of PRES in ALL, and its progression with chemotherapy. A 13-year-old Malay male presented with a one-week history of blurred vision and headache associated with hypertension, hyperkalemia and acute renal failure. CT brain imaging showed symmetrical and bilateral white matter hypodensities at the parietal regions. Brain MRI on T2 and FLAIR images showed patchy areas of high signal intensity at cortical and subcortical region of both parietal and occipital lobes, consistent with PRES. He developed bicytopenia and bone marrow biopsy confirmed pre-B acute lymphoblastic leukemia. He received Phase 1 induction chemotherapy according to the modified UKALL XII protocol but in view of PRES, L-asparaginase and intrathecal methotrexate were delayed until after Day 17 of chemotherapy. No neurological symptoms were observed after chemotherapy. However, during Phase 2 induction chemotherapy with high dose cytarabine and intrathecal methotrexate, he developed accelerated hypertension and status epilepticus requiring mechanical ventilation. Cerebrospinal fluid analysis did not show infection or leukemic infiltration. A repeat brain MRI showed worsening features of the pre-existing PRES, followed by partial resolution on Day 37 of chemotherapy. Subsequent cytotoxic chemotherapies were uneventful except for radiological deterioration of PRES with partial resolution upon hematological recovery. It is important to consider the diagnosis of PRES in a young patient presenting with acute onset of headache and visual disturbances even before the initiation of cytotoxic chemotherapy. In view of the pre-existing PRES, there are risks of further neurological damage and fatal neurological squeal by introducing chemotherapy to treat the leukemia. Therefore it is vital to recognize and treat PRES promptly as early intervention may prevent or reverse the development of encephalopathy.
Design and Development of Vehicle anti-collision System using Electromagnet and Ultrasonic Sensors
Shival Dubey,Abdul Wahid Ansari
International Journal on Theoretical and Applied Research in Mechanical Engineering , 2013,
Abstract: Electromagnetic anti-collision device is proposed here in order to avoid Vehicular Head to Head/Back collision that estimates the distance between the two vehicles running extreme traffic condition. It incorporates distance finding between two vehicles using ultrasonic range finder. The vehicle collision and its impact emerged as the major problem in the last two decades when the use of the automobile increased to a subsequent number. In order to avoid vehicle collision/ road accidents this system will work in two stages: - A Range finder will continuously track the distance between two vehicles moving and sends it to the ECM using these inputs if it finds the vehicle in the vicinity of the other it will automatically actuate the sensor strip for Electromagnetic Induction. This system is reliable, cost-efficient and fault tolerable. These characteristics enable the vehicle anti-collision in adaptive control environment.

Elham Rahbar,Nabsiah Abdul Wahid
Journal of Sustainable Development , 2010, DOI: 10.5539/jsd.v3n3p255
Abstract: Firms have been using eco-label as a tool to inform consumers of the environmental characteristics of their products. The essential issue for marketers in international markets particularly in countries with multi-ethic populations such as Malaysia is to identify different ethnic group and their responses (i.e. behavior) to their products. The purpose of this article is to examine whether different ethnic groups display different perception on eco-label. eed a linking statement before this sentence.value compared to Indian, Chinese and other ethnic group (3.17, 2.71, anag Results indicate that Malay, Chinese and Indian, the three major ethnic groups in Malaysia differ in their recognition of the eco-label. The finding implies that marketing managers should consider ethno-cultural differences when marketing and promoting their eco-labeled products in the market to achieve competitive advantage.
Endorser Credibility Effects on Yemeni Male Consumer’s Attitudes towards Advertising, Brand Attitude and Purchase Intention: The Mediating Role of Attitude toward Brand
Methaq Ahmed Abdulmajid Sallam,Nabsiah Abdul Wahid
International Business Research , 2012, DOI: 10.5539/ibr.v5n4p55
Abstract: The use of celebrity as spokespeople for companies continues to be a popular method of advertising. The reason behind the popularity of celebrity advertising is the advertiser’s belief that messages delivered by well-known personalities achieve a high degree of attention and recall for some consumer. The present study assesses the impact of dimension’s source credibility on Yemeni consumer’s attitude towards advertisement (Aad), the effect of (Aad) on consumer’s attitude toward brand (Ab), the impact of (Ab) on consumer’s purchase intention (PI) and explores the mediating role of (Ab) between (Aad) and (PI). This study will use the elaboration likelihood model (ELM) and theory of dual mediating hypotheses (DMH) as predicators to explain the relationship between variables. We surveyed 400 Yemeni male consumers who viewed a real advertisement. They rated the credibility of the endorser, attitude towards advertisement, attitude towards brand, and purchase intention. Path analysis confirmed that endorser attractiveness had strongest impact on (Aad) more than endorser expertise. It found also, (Ab) is considered to be a partial mediator between (Aad) and (PI) relationship.

Negotiation in Multi-Agent System using Partial-Order Schedule
Ritu Sindhu,Abdul Wahid,G. N. Purohit
International Journal of Computer Science Issues , 2011,
Abstract: In systems composed of multiple autonomous agents, negotiation is a key form of interaction that enables groups of agents to arrive at a mutual agreement regarding some belief, goal or plan, for example. In general, multi-linked negotiation (including both the directly linked and the indirectly linked relationships) describes situations where one agent needs to negotiate with multiple agents about different issues, where the negotiation over one issue influences the negotiations over other issues. The characteristics of the commitment on one issue affect the evaluation of a commitment or the construction of a proposal for another issue. In this paper we built a partial order schedule representation with the help of which we effectively manage interacting negotiation issues.Also we explored how flexibility is an important factor for ordering and managing negotiation issues in a successful negotiation and enables an agent to reason explicitly about the interactions among multiple negotiation issues in order to achieve higher performance.
