That the lecture is among the most effective ways of getting information from the notes of a teacher to the notes of students without passing through students' minds has long been known. IVY League research recently confirmed this. The average collegiate lecture-a minimally instructive education procedure-leaves students with an unlucky 13 percent success rate in identifying core academic understandings. In contrast, brain research reveals that deep and lasting learning is constructed through interactions with emotionally competent stimuli (ECS) that invite sustained and connected use of multiple brain regions. Research indicates that ECS serve as master keys that help students access and encode crucial course concepts through their brains' adjacent sensory, temporal, frontal, and motor cortices, where learning is constructed—rather than bestowed. For these reasons, this paper invites readers to consider: (1) empirical evidence suggesting that curriculum designed around information in the absence of relevant learner emotion leads to academic Cs; (2) the adherence of the teaching profession to such comparatively ineffective delivery methods; (3) the neuroscientific research findings identifying ECS as a promoter of robust learning; and (4) how these findings may inform construction of the most effective face-to-face, eLearning, and distance learning alternatives for 21st century education.

There are a few recent articles published that found stiffening access to sensitive data did not result in fewer reported occurrences of data breaches in IT security or the relative frequency of incidences of breaches as reported by experienced information technology (IT) professionals. In this study, we found no difference in the reported cases of breaches on having a formal IT policy, external access from mobile devices, and number of times clients were required to change their passwords, regardless of the security protocol. These findings are consistent with findings from more recent studies that stiffening access does not reduce significantly the frequency of reported breaches on IT security defenses.

Discrete-Event Simulation Software (DESS) are used to analyze the workings of complex systems without incorporating costly and time consuming experimental trials. There are a variety of DESS available in the market with varying characteristics and features which makes the selection of a DESS difficult. In this paper, a Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) approach to the DESS selection process is examined. Results from solved DEA models are analyzed to illustrate how the approach can be used to identify efficient software packages and to highlight the approach’s potential benefits to decision-makers.

International trade and the free movement of people are inevitably followed by legal disputes. Such litigants require an efficient and predictable dispute resolution mechanism capable of handling cases between diverse nationals. An essential part of such mechanism is a clearly defined process of judgment enforcement across national boundaries. In the past several decades, the European Union (“EU”) has necessarily addressed judgment enforcement across the boundaries of its member nations (“Member States”). Citizens of the EU need to prosecute and defend their legal rights in their home and in other EU member states. Presently, the EU is, again, considering such issues and is poised to make some changes in this area. As with past EU legislation regarding judgment recognition and enforcement, the proposed changes are intended to promote the growth of the European economy by encouraging and furthering cross-border trade and the free movement of people. This paper presents the following, (1) a brief introduction to civil and commercial judgment recognition and enforcement in the EU, (2) the current status of judgment enforcement as exemplified in significant case law, (3) the deficiencies of current EU judgment enforcement Brussels Is, and finally, (3) the proposed changes to such Brussels I currently.

This paper concentrates on economic performance of commercial and investment banks in Pakistan. The purpose of this research paper is to test out the progress and development of the financial institutions working in Pakistan. To accomplish this research economic data is used of both commercial and investment banks. Banks are backbone of an economy. Economic deepening has become more intense during the last many years however, the banks are undoubtedly the main players accounting for 90 % of the total monetary assets of the system. This study also interprets many statistical tests in which different variables like Paid-up capital, total assets, equity, sales and profit before and after taxation are tested. The results of this research paper shows that commercial banks are on sustainability but investment banks are suffering deficit. This paper also includes recommendations for improvement and betterment of an economy.

Simulated learning environments (SLEs) provide a representation of the real world by presenting realistic features embedded in the simulated environment. This study examined the effectiveness of the Tactical Iraqi Language and Culture Training SystemTM (Tactical IraqiTM), by comparing it to an equivalent classroom-training event. Data were collected from 18 U.S. Marines. Results indicated that trainees’ language acquisition improved in both training groups. Self-efficacy results were mixed with listening self-efficacy improving significantly for SLE and speaking self-efficacy improving significantly for classroom. Increases in listening self-efficacy were significantly greater for the SLE than for classroom. Implications and future research directions are discussed.
