Linking Mentoring Program to Self-Efficacy as a Predictor of Mentee Outcomes
Azman Ismail,Mohd Noor Mohd Shariff,Michael Kho Khian Jui,Norashikin Sahol Hamid
International Business Management , 2012, DOI: 10.3923/ibm.2012.131.139
Abstract: The purpose of this study is to examine the influence of self-efficacy in the relationship between mentoring program practices and mentee outcomes using 196 usable questionnaires collected from students studying in institutions of higher learning in Sarawak, Malaysia. The outcomes of stepwise regression analysis showed two important findings; firstly, the relationship between self-efficacy and mentoring program practices (i.e., communication, participation and support) is insignificantly correlated with psychosocial. Secondly, the relationship between self-efficacy and mentoring program practices (i.e., communication, participation and support) is significantly correlated with academic performance. Statistically, this result confirms that the relationship between self-efficacy and mentoring program practices has not been an important predictor of psychosocial but the relationship between self-efficacy and mentoring program practice has been an important predictor of academic performance in the organizational sample.

Abstract: Compensation management literature highlights that performance based payhas two major characteristics: participation in pay systems and adequacy ofpay. The ability of management to properly implement such pay systems maylead to increased job satisfaction in organizations. Though, the nature of thisrelationship is interesting, little is known about the influence of performancebased pay on job satisfaction in compensation management literature.Therefore, this study was conducted to examine the relationship between payfor performance and job satisfaction in Malaysian GIATMARA centers. Theresults of exploratory factor analysis confirmed that measurement scalesused in this study satisfactorily met the standards of validity and reliabilityanalyses. An outcome of stepwise regression analysis shows thatdeterminant of job satisfaction is performance based pay. Further, this resultconfirms that pay for performance is an important antecedent for jobsatisfaction in the studied organizations.

Azman Ismail,Hasan Al-Banna Mohamed,Norashikin Sahol Hamid,Ahmad Zaidi Sulaiman
International Journal of Business and Management , 2011, DOI: 10.5539/ijbm.v6n11p170
Abstract: This study was conducted to examine the influence of interactional justice in the relationship between performance based pay and job satisfaction using 334 usable questionnaires gathered from employees who work in Malaysian private institutions of higher learning (PRIVATE INSTITUTION), Malaysia. Exploratory factor analysis confirmed that the measurement scales used in this study met the acceptable standards of validity and reliability analyses. Further, the outcomes of Stepwise Regression analysis showed two important findings: First, performance based pay (i.e., participation in pay systems and adequacy of pay) significantly correlated with job satisfaction. Second, linking performance based pay (i.e., participation in pay systems and adequacy of pay) to interactional justice significantly correlated with job satisfaction. Statistically, this result demonstrates that interactional justice does act as a partial mediating variable in the relationship between performances based pays and job satisfaction in the studied organizations. In addition, discussion, implications and conclusion are elaborated.

International Business Management , 2012, DOI: 10.3923/ibm.2012.119.130
Abstract: This study examined the relationship between the effectiveness of implementing teleworking and the outcomes of employees quality of life, quality of work life and job satisfaction in their organization. Qualitative research methods were deployed; total of 150 questionnaires were sent to identified teleworkers in a selected organization. A response rate of 61% was achieved which denotes that a total of 91 teleworkers responded to the questionnaire. The findings demonstrated that quality of life, quality of work life and job satisfaction have significantc relationships with teleworking. This study is expected to contribute in providing a realization among various firms within the public and the private sector within Malaysia about the evolving preferences among employees in the advancing technology era. Furthermore, this study is expected to create an essential and fundamental step in aiding organisations in their efforts to increase and improve their employees motivation, engagement and productivity.

Energy and Power Engineering (EPE) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/epe.2011.32023
Abstract: In this paper, condensation of water vapor from a mixture of COR2R/HR2RO is studied numerically. To simplify the study and focus on the physical model, a simple vertical plate was chosen. Two condensation models are developed and numerical approach is considered to implement these models. The main objective in the cur-rent paper was to study the capability of numerical modeling in prediction of complex process. Results showed that developed condensation models in combination with numerical approach can predict the trends in condensation behavior of binary mixture very well. Results from this study can be developed further to be used in design of condensers which are suitable for oxy-fuel power plants.
Optimal Node Scheduling for Desired Percentage of Coverage in Wireless Sensor Networks  [PDF]
Hamid Khosravi
Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/wsn.2012.45018
Abstract: Recent developments in wireless communication and embedded computing technologies have led to the advent of wireless sensor network technology. Hundreds of thousands of these micro sensors can be deployed in many areas including health, environment and battlefield in order to monitor the domain with desired level of accuracy. When wireless sensors are deployed in an area, the lifetime of the network should last as long as possible according to the original amount of energy. Therefore, reducing energy consumption in WSNs is of primary concern. We have proposed a node scheduling solution that solves the coverage and connectivity problem in sensor networks in an integrated manner. In this way we will divide network life time to finite number of rounds and in each round we will generate a coverage bitmap of sensors of the domain and based on this bitmap it will decided which sensors remain active or go to sleep. We will check the connection of the sensor network by using Laplacian of adjancy graph of active nodes in each round. Also the network will be capable of producing desired percentage of coverage by using coverage bitmap. We will define the connected coverage problem as an optimization problem and we will seek a solution for the problem by using Genetic Algorithm optimization method.

Abstract: The aims of this research were (1) to assess the sustainability of the marine sanctuary program in the COREMAP site phase II Raja Ampat; and (2) to find out the parameters which affect the sustainability aspects marine sanctuary program in the COREMAP site phase II Raja Ampat. This research had been conducted in Raja Ampat-West Papua by using survey method and respondents determined by purposive sampling method. The collected data had been analyzed by Analytic Hierarchy Process, or AHP. The results indicated that (1) the sustainability of marine sanctuary program in the COREMAP site phase II Raja Ampat will go on, because the strong indications showed that the comprehensive sustainable value were 2,178 (high category), (2) from 22 evaluated villages, 15 villages (68,2%) have sustainability value by high category and 7 villages (31,8 %) have sustainability value by moderate category (i.e: Villages of Saonek, Yenbeser, Kurkapa, Bianci, Selpele, Yensawai, and Arefi).

Abstract: RAAS gene polymorphisms were determined using mutagenically separated PCR and PCR-RFLP method in a total of 270 subjects consisting of 70 hypertensive subjects without type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), 60 T2DM, 65 hypertensive subjects with T2DM and 75 control subjects.There was significant difference found in age, body mass index, systolic/diastolic blood pressure, fasting plasma glucose and high density lipoprotein cholesterol levels between the hypertensive subjects with or without T2DM and control subjects. No statistically significant differences between groups were found in the allele frequency and genotype distribution for A20C variant of AGT gene, MboI of renin, Gly460Trp of aldosterone and Lys173Arg of adducin (p > 0.05). However, the results for A6G of AGT gene revealed significant differences in allele and genotype frequencies in essential hypertension with or without T2DM (p < 0.001).Among the five polymorphisms of RAAS genes only A6G variant of AGT gene was significantly associated in Malaysian essential hypertensive and type 2 diabetic subjects. Therefore, A6G polymorphism of the AGT gene could be a potential genetic marker for increased susceptibility to essential hypertension with or without T2DMin Malaysian subjects.It is well known that the renin angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS) as a circulating or hormonal system that regulates blood pressure, electrolyte and fluid homeostasis [1]. The development of hypertension in diabetes is also due to the effects of RAAS activation [2]. On the basis of biochemical or physiological functions, genetic variants of angiotensin converting enzyme, angiotensinogen (AGT), angiotensin type 1 receptor, aldosterone synthase (CYP11B2), adducin, renin of RAAS have been intensively studied in various populations with conflicting results in relation to hypertension [3], diabetic complications [4], coronary heart disease [5] and renal disease [6].After an initial report [7], several studies analyzed the association of AG

Abstract: The presence of a dimorphic BglI site in the first intron of the Renin (REN) gene is an increased risk in essential hypertension. Several studies have found the association between BglI dimorphism and essential hypertension with conflicting results in various populations, which might be due to ethnic and geographical variations. The objective of this study is to determine the relationship between the BglI dimorphism of REN gene and Essential Hypertension (EHT) with or without Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM) in Malaysian subjects. The study includes 70 EHT, 60 EHT with T2DM and 70 unrelated healthy subjects from the three ethnic groups of Malaysian Subjects. The genotype of BglI dimorphism was done by PCR-RFLP method using BglI restriction enzyme. The frequency of the BglI (+) allele was 37.86% in EHT, 40.83% in EHT with T2DM subjects and 35.71% in control subjects. The results of this study indicate that the BglI (+) allele of REN gene is not associated with essential hypertension with or without T2DM in Malaysian Subjects.
