Paper Title:

Challenges of Risk Management and Insurance in Iran Construction Industry

Abstract: With regard to construction sector and insurance sector relationship, effective risk management is believed to have a significant effect on insurance coverage development as well as construction sector’s competitive advantage through improved operation quality. In this research therefore, we set out to conduct a survey among construction sector and respective insurance companies’ management and experts. Our aim evolved around the idea that this sample could delineate the literature on this subject regarding the key and critical issues existing between them. To analyze the data we used one sample student t test. The results indicate that, most important impediment to effective risk management in this sector is managers’ lack of appropriate understanding in both sectors concerning risk management and its applications. Results also indicate that uncertainty accumulation in absence of effective risk management lead to cost increase both in construction projects and in insurance fees. Furthermore, lack of specialized knowledge on both side from each other, lack of standard insurance procedures, result in miscommunication between the two sectors. Suggestion is proposed based on result and literature review. This is the first research, to our knowledge, studying risk management implementation in Iranian construction sector

Emerging Trends in Investment Strategies in Public Issues

Abstract:  The investment has been in the last 30 years and is progressively part of the main financial sector, attracting greater attention and better acceptance of regulators and the general public. However, it enters a period of considerable growth and change due to the influence of macroeconomic factors, the regulation of the post-crisis financial industry and two critical trends in the industry: institutionalization and reuse, the growing sophistication of institutional investors and the increase of particular investors as a major source of capital. This article critically examines emerging trends that make up the investment industry today and considers where this could take the industry in the years to come, focusing on investment strategies for public problems.

Paper Title:

Influence of Demographic Characteristics on the Competence level of Information Technology in using HRIS tools in Educational Institutions

Abstract: All institutions today use Information system (IS) tools for their effective functioning of the system. Be it branded or customized tools, the institutions use them for their daily activities to be automated and to run the system error free, and to provide quality data, reports and decisions. The success of the application of the Human Resource Information System (HRIS) depends on the knowledge level, skill sets, motivation level, and the deployment of human resources responsible for effective usage of the system. Howbeit, from the study, it is implicit that there is an influence of demographic features on the application of Information Technology and usage of Information System tools.  The study was carried out to show that the efficacy and effectiveness of the usage of the IS tool in any institution not only cater to the need of the operational level and middle level managers, but also the strategic needs of the institution. However, awareness about the effectiveness of the tool has to be strengthened for the maximized usage of the tool. This paper vividly shows the impact or the influence of demographic features on usage of IS tools.

Enhancing Speaking and Writing Skills in English using Status in WhatsApp – A Study

Abstract:  The advent of the smartphone era had brought in many aspects in the facets of life that once seemed imaginary or seemingly impossible. To begin with, technological advancements like e-commerce, e-banking, e-business etc. have made life so easy for humans. One of the most wanted and highly recommended apps is WhatsApp. One of the key features in WhatsApp is the Status portfolio that has been added quite recently. This is one striking feature that enables the user to upload anything that they feel is appropriate to be uploaded. First, the teacher who is to engage in this exercise should make sure that the target group (students) are all having a smartphone with WhatsApp installed in it. Though there is no group of broadcast list formed from the teacher's WhatsApp account, the users will invariably be instructed to watch and learn the status that is posted every day by the teacher. Given to understand that the mobile data tariff is very much reduced nowadays, it is expected that the target group will have a good mobile data connection, both in terms of connectivity and tariff. Furthermore, if teachers of English can fully understand the apps that are developed for social networking and then put them into creative for the benefit of the masses, it will bring in a positive approach among the students who yearn to learn and master the English language, irrespective of age, class, creed and religion.
