Teachers are very important to the community and nation especially in school. They help students with their full responsibility to make sure stu-dents get the best result in their exams. Teachers give their full commitment during their class hours and sometimes also during school holidays. It truly for sure needs to help students get all the information and knowledge to prepare for their exams. But, dissatisfaction among them nowadays is needed to see in clear view for ministry. According to [1], there are a variety of factors that can influence a person’s level of job satisfaction. Some of these factors include the level of pay and benefits, the perceived fairness of the promotion system within a company, the quality of the working conditions, leaderships and social relationships and the job itself. Why they do not satisfy with the job? This paper discusses job satisfaction among sports teacher in primary school at Kulim district in Malaysia.

International Journal of Sport Management, Recreation & Tourism , 2012,
Abstract: The present study examines the effects of physical module elements (adventure based activity) included in the Malaysian National Service Programme and to investigate the socio-demographic variables impact on team cohesion building among the participants. In this study, the participants were selected from three different camps, namely, Tasoh camp, Guar Chenderai camp and Meranti camp, located in the state of Perlis, Malaysia. The participants were those from the second batch intake in the year 2007. The sample sizes comprised of 994 participants (480=males, 514=females). The present study applied a pre-test and post-test design. The group was tested before and after the programme. This design was chosen because it could measure the impacts of the adventure-based activity towards team cohesion over time through the pre- and post-test scores (Berg & Latin, 2004). The variables comprised of the demographic factors (age, gender and place of residence), which included team cohesion were measured by Group Environmental Questionnaire (GEQ) (Carron, Widmeyer, & Brawley, 1985). Results indicated that the participants of the National Service Training Programme underwent group cohesion change during the Physical Module activities (adventure based activities) that were carried out at the camp. The changes were observable based on the statistically analyzed data during the pre and post-test.

Sports and recreation activities are always exposed to various safety issues before, during and after activities. Positive practices could avoid the occurrence of accidents that caused injuries to the participants. Risk management practices are the most important element in the organization or management of sports and recreation activities. This element is significant in increasing the wellbeing of a society where a safe and healthy population can be developed. Each activity that was about to be organized and the facilities provided must be free and safe from incidents that could cause injuries either direct or indirectly. The development in sports and recreation activities need the involvement of knowledgeable, skilled and qualified personnel in order to offer various products and services to the society. The products and services offered could develop a competitive and precise economy to the nation. Sports and recreation activities as well as others could offer new business prospects, services and latest products. The objective of this article was to look into and explain how risk management practices through sports and recreation activities could help assure and secure the quality and wellbeing of a society.

White water kayaking is the fun sport on fast moving water, typically call white water river. The element of fun and challenge has attracted many people to join this adventure sports in Malaysia. This study examined the risk in adventure sport tourism by white water kayakers in Malaysia. The objective of this study is to reveal the injuries suffered by whitewater kayakers during activity. This 2013 survey will be described using descriptive data only. The survey forms were distributed via kayak clubs and associations under the auspices of the Malaysian Canoe Association (MASCA). The survey asked respondents about their previous injuries during white water kayaking activities. All the data concerning to age, sex, experience and ability was collected from them. A total of 217 respondents provided feedback on this survey. Of the total 217, about 186 respondents experienced injuries during an activity, while the rest did not suffer any injuries while they were kayaking. The result showed only 41% seeks medical attention after injury. These whitewater kayaking activities require physical exertion as well as emotional and mental stability. Good practise and skill can help kayakers avoid injuries and accident during paddling session. This sport has been developing and growing each year. Future studies can also be done by looking for new discipline in white water which is “playboating” which may find different risk and injury.

Open Access Library Journal (OALib Journal) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/oalib.1104011
This article aims to look upon the guidelines regarding the preparation of facilities and risk management of training activities for disable athlete. The facilities and appropriate training activities are one of the vital entities to prepare them towards better performance. Suitable facilities for every group will give advantages toward any service provider; thus their facilities will always be users’ choice. However, special facilities for this group are also needed to be taken into consideration to ensure equality for them. This group needs to be given attention and helps to ensure that their success in sports area can be highlighted and they may experience what was felt by other normal athletes, indirectly. But, the facilities and non-user-friendly risk management of the training practices result to the limitation of their mobility and potential in our country’s sports arena. Lack of scientific material regarding disabled athletes in risk management field also contributes to the reason why authors wish to share discussion to give precise and useful information for readers.

Abstract: The transformations of Islamic higher education in Indonesia have occurred since the establishment of STI to PTAIN, then IAIN and UIN. It has tremendous impact on the implementation of models of Islamic studies. At early stage of development, Islamic higher education in this country tends to follow a normative-idealistic approach of Islamic studies due to the huge influences of many Middle Eastern graduates. However, changes of Islamic studies approach come to exist when the Western graduates bring non-scriptualistic methodologies and multidisciplinary approach in Islamic studies. If compared to Malaysia, the two poles of Eastern or Western and Islamic or non-Islamic higher education types have been integrated with the paradigm of Islamization of knowledge. Recent development indicates that Malaysian and Indonesian universities have intensified their mutual cooperation through U to U or G to G Memorandum of Understanding. There are several ways of encounters, namely teacher (or lecturer) and student exchanges, literature line, bilateral cooperation, and informal factors. With the closer link between the two people of these countries, the bonds between Islamic studies connecting the two countries have become closer.

Abstract: The flash technique of thermal diffusivity measurement applied to composite materials is dependent upon the success at deriving and solving the associated heat diffusion equation for the particular boundary problems of the experiment. Orthogonal expansion technique and the Green’s function approach are easier and straight forward for deriving and solving such equations, but the solutions converge very slowly for small times and hence cannot be used for numerical calculations. The Laplace transformation technique on the other hand has advantage of allowing for the making of small time approximation in order to obtain solutions that are very rapidly convergent. The principle difficulty of this technique is in the inversion of the resulting transform from s to t domain. Inversion by contour integration requires a lot of mastery in integral calculus and the simplest method is therefore to look up for the transform in the standard Laplace conversion table. At first look not all subsidiary equations can be converted using the Laplace transform conversion table; in this work however, we present the mathematical analysis by means of which analytical solutions to heat diffusion problem in composite media; hitherto only transformed via contour integration, is obtained directly from the Laplace transform conversion tables.

Abstract: Recent trends of structural mechanics applications in finite element analysis demonstrate an increasing demand for efficient analysis tools. This paper presents a probabilistic analysis approach applied in finite element analysis for modeling prestressed inverted T-beams with web openings structure used in building service system (mechanical, electrical, communications, and plumbing). The experimental program reported in this paper tested four prestressed inverted T-beams with circular web openings to failure to evaluate the openings' effect on various beam behaviors. Using ANSYS, finite element models were developed to simulate beam deflection behavior. Comparison of analytical results with the available experimental results for loaddeflection relationships showed good agreement between both results. Probabilistic analysis methodology could predict the response (i.e., deflection, stress, strain etc) due to various combination of input variables (i.e., Poisson`s ratio, modulus of elasticity, etc). In reality, uncertainties exist in a system and environment that may make the application of deterministic design unreliable which causes the values of the variables that are acting on the system cannot be predicted with certainty. As such, probabilistic approach was applied to the model after deterministic analysis. In this study, the probabilistic analysis approach was applied to account for the variability in fabrication. Probabilistic methodology applied in finite element modeling provides another alternative ways of structural analysis of preststressed inverted T-beams with web openings to achieve a robust and reliable design in a more efficient way. In this study, Monte Carlo simulation was used to analyze the effect of parameter uncertainty for the prestressed inverted T-beams with web openings. From the analysis results, it was observed that the changes in prestressing force, elastic modulus of prestressing steel, ultimate tensile strength of prestressing steel and beam width tend to be the most influencing parameters, which need to be tightly controlled. As a result, from deterministic analysis and probabilistic analysis, it was found that probabilistic analysis tends to be closer to reality than deterministic methods and gives a way of designing for quality.

Abstract: The objectives of the present work were to study the capability of pomelo's floral tissues to produce callus and to investigate the influence of plant growth regulators on callus induction and development. Various parts of flower namely petal, sepal, style, ovary, pistil and cup base were cultured onto Murashige and Skoog (MS) basal medium supplemented with different levels of 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D), 6-benzylaminopurine (BAP) and 6-Furfurylaminopurine (kinetin). It was found that different parts of flowers favored different levels of hormone for callus induction. The highest formation of callus were obtained from petal and sepal cultured on MS media supplemented with 1.5 mg/l kinetin. A 50 ± 2.3%explants from style and pistil had initiated callus when cultured on MS media supplemented with 0.05 mg/l and 0.10 mg/l BAP, respectively. On the other hand, sucrose agar (SA) media alone had managed to induce callus formation from almost every part of the flowers with a success rate between 7.69 ± 0.32 to 50 ± 3.18%. The uncut part of flowers initiated high percentage of callus (14.6 ± 0.35%) as shown in the study on petal.
