Catalytic oxidation of polyphenol trihydroxybenzene by  Pd-containing poly (vinyl alcohol)

Simple and environment friendly Pd-containing poly (vinyl alcohol) PVA catalysts were prepared by casting from their aqueous solutions. A series of PVA containing different ratios of Pd was characterized by IR, electronic spectroscopy, thermal analysis, XRD, Field-emission scanning electron microscopy (FE-SEM) and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). The binding of Pd to the polymer matrix and its effect on the polymer structure was studied by means of XRD, XPS and thermal analysis. The catalytic activity of the Pd-based catalysts towards the oxidation of polyphenol trihydroxy benzene was investigated and showed a significant catalytic activity in case of the polymer sample containing the lowest Pd concentration (A1). The oxidation mechanism was proposed. Kojic acid was used to inhibit the oxidation reaction and it has been observed to be a non competitive inhibitor

Antecedents of Entrepreneurial Intention (With Reference to Undergraduates of UWU, Sri Lanka)

Entrepreneurial intentions are considered as more accurate predictors of entrepreneurial behavior. Understanding entrepreneurial intentions will enable the researchers to investigate the dynamics of entrepreneurial venture creation process. However, the controversial findings on the determinants of entrepreneurial intentions and the focus on the isolated variables without a theoretical rationale triggered this study to question what antecedents would predict the entrepreneurial intention of undergraduates. Thus, this study was conducted with the aim of identifying the antecedents of entrepreneurial intention of undergraduates. Accordingly, a sample of 209 undergraduates from Uva Wellassa University of Sri Lanka was studied by using a structured questionnaire on entrepreneurial intention, perceived desirability, perceived social norms and perceived feasibility. The results of the Binary Logistic Regression employed in order of achieving the objective of this study

Local Residents’ Perception of the Psycho-Social and  Economic Impact of Tourism in Goa

This paper explores the benefits and adverse effects of tourism on the psycho-social and economic life of the locals in the coastal village of Cavelossim, Goa (India). In the study a sample comprising 232 household heads were interviewed. Using Chi-square and Kruskal-Wallis H test, it was found that all household heads perceived that tourism had negatively impacted the psycho-social life of the locals. While the major economic benefits of tourism perceived were employment and increased income, the major adverse effect was increase in food prices. It was also found that due to tourism traditional occupations were abandoned for more lucrative employment.

Knowledge of Book-Keeping as a Predictor of Academic  Performance in Principles of Accounts among Bu

The major purpose of this study is to find out the extent to which previous knowledge of Book-keeping will predict students’ academic performance in Principles of Accounts 1 (BED 111) at the NCE 100 level in College of Education, Ikere Ekiti, Ekiti State, Nigeria. The study employed an ex-post facto research design with a sample of 371 selected from a population of 708. Three research hypotheses were tested at 0.05 level of significant using T-test, Standard deviation, Multiple regression and Analysis of variance. A finding from the study reveals that previous knowledge of Book-keeping significantly contributes to the prediction of academic performance of students in Principles of Accounts 1 (BED 111) among others. It was concluded that the influence of previous knowledge in teaching/learning process provides the background to framework upon which new learning will be placed. It is recommended that Joint Admission Matriculation Board (JAMB) should properly streamline

Students’ Variables as Predictor of Secondary School  Students’ Performance in Physics

The Students’ Variables as Predictor of Secondary School Students’ Performance in Physics in Ekiti West Local Government Area of Ekiti State, Nigeria was investigated in this study. The study adopted a survey research design of the ex-post facto type. The sample comprised 120 senior secondary school II Physics students drawn from the six secondary schools in Ekiti West Local Government Area of Ekiti state. The instruments used for the study was questionnaire and past academic performance in Physics of the students involved in the study. Two research hypotheses were generated and analysed in the study using Pearson’s Moment Correlation and Multiple regression statistical analysis. Among others, the study revealed that: students‘ variables (study habit, attitude to and interest of students in Physics) are better predictors of students’ performance in Physics, while student gender has no influence on students academic performance (is a poor predictor).

Leadership style is phenomenon which affects the productivity and quality nursing care. There is a lack of research studies in this area in Sri Lanka. The aim of this study was to examine the nurses’ perception about their nurse managers’ leadership style. The study sample comprised 160 nurses using simple random sampling. The research instruments were Demographic Data Recording Form and the Perceived Leadership Form Questionnaire. The reliability coefficient of the Perceived Leadership Form Questionnaire was 0.86 and the content validity index of was .91. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics. Nurses perceived their managers’ leadership style as transformational (Mean = 3.35, SD =0.64), and transactional leadership as (Mean = 3.25, SD =0.45). The results of the study showed that nurses perceived their managers’ leadership style as transformational. The study provides the opportunity for nurse managers to look into their nursing staff by examining
