Abstract: This article examines decentralisation in Zimbabwe. Decentralisation is the transfer of power from a central authority to the lower levels of government. This transfer of power can be done by the government on behalf of the state as a whole or by offices within larger organizations. The article traces the historical evolution of decentralization in Zimbabwe and finds that the terrain is marked by three phases that is, the colonial, post-colonial and constitutional periods. In the colonial phase (1890-1979), decentralization was characterized by a two-tier local governance system divided along racial lines, with the white minority benefiting more than the black majority.

Abstract: COVID-19 introduced a modern normlessness, collapsing social support structures required for encouragement during rapid changes such as social distancing, job loss and psychological distress. The purpose of this research is to determine if there is a significant relationship between unemployment and suicide and to examine whether this association is affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. We conducted a regression analysis to analyze the variances in the number of unemployment and suicides from 1999–2018 in the U.S. Results of the simple linear regression indicated that there is a significant relationship exists between unemployment and suicides, (F(1, 18) = 59.58, p<.001, R2=.768), concluding that higher unemployment rates will increase the number of suicides. Preventing suicide calls for immediate action accompanied by mitigation initiatives and exposure to mental health treatments to ensure that individuals with diminished or unforeseen income have access to appropriate resources.

Abstract: This paper attempts to provide an accentuated understanding of corruption in Africa by delineating the role of Africa’s leadership and donor agencies in abating mismanagement of public resources. Through a systematic approach, this paper reviews existing evidence on dynamics of corruption in Africa and notes its implications in the modern underdeveloped Africa. The paper notes that good governance, transparency, and accountability are sine qua non building blocks of 21st century democratic societies. African countries can reduce corruption by formulating tough anti-corruption policies, such as high profile convictions, ensuring that companies operating in Africa are more transparent in their dealings with the government and tougher on those companies and individuals paying bribes, just as African leaders must be ready to take a tougher stand on corrupt officials that take the bribes. Importantly, countries in the Global South should strengthen their institutions and create efficient and effective anti-corruption agencies. On the other hand, developed countries should support Africans in their fight against corruption by helping bring corrupt leaders to justice, and seize and return funds that have been stolen through corruption and invested in Western bank accounts.

Abstract: Appraisal concerns with language for evaluation. It is the extended theory of interpersonal meanings from Halliday and Matthiessen (2004). It is then developed by Martin and White (2005). The Appraisal system is deployed to explore texts in detail from discouse semantics perspectives (Martin & Rose, 2003). Aprraisal covers three major systems including attitude, engagement, and graduation. This study was intended to find out the manifestation of Appraisal systems found in male newspaper articles. It employed descriptive qualitative method in the form of discourse analysis. It examined eight online newspaper articles written by male authors within the theoretical framework of Martin and White (2005). Besides, gender and psychological theories from Coates (2008); Shields (2000) and Guimond (2008) were employed. The findings found out that those three systems of Appraisal manifested in the male articles. Engagement was dominantly perceived. On the other side, attitude was scarcely found. This study is beneficial for writers in all levels, especially for English Language Learners. It gives awareness about how to convey emotions and voices effectively by using Appraisal.

Abstract: Through numerous theoretical contributions, this study addresses the delicate problem of prison culture; i.e., the subculture that develops among members of the prison community, but outside the institutional prison rules. The subculture aims to make the prisoner a characteristic member of the prison community, guiding him in his behaviour towards other prisoners and pushing him to total submission and obedience to those in power, all of which has repercussions on psychological balance and health. Acculturation to this internal culture involves symbols, gestures and forms of encrypted communication among inmates to prevent prison workers from understanding the contents.

Abstract: Environmental law is one amongst the rapidest developing facets of law. It is generally agreed upon that those that cause harm or damage should be paying in a method or another for such harm. Such harm may be to the society or to our surroundings or to our body at an intimate level. Due to lack of sanctions in environmental law, it became very difficult to keep an eye on the hazardous activities. This required the initiation of a penalty to punish the folks that caused damage or harm to the environment. This gave ascent to what we all know today as the ‘Polluter Pays Principle’. This principle implies that the value of pollution should be paid polluter and not by the authorities. This principle is taken into account to be the foremost adequate environmental strategy and has been constituted in numerous international and regional agreements regarding pollution. This conception of Polluter pays has been breathing even prior to the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) approved it as a recognized precept of environmental law.

Abstract: The study developed new, novel, and cheaper materials as micronutrients for plants. These studies showed that some copper ore can be utilized as a cheaper source of copper micronutrients. This method would be economically feasible for agriculture. The study has shown that roasting increased the recovery of copper from different ores differently. As the roasting time and temperature increase, the leaching of copper will also increase. The leaching of copper maximum in a sample was in the order of leaching of copper in three ores is as Sample C>sample D>Waziristan chalcopyrite. The experiments showed that the untreated raw oxidized copper ore show significant leaching which is 9.5% for saline and 35.5% for fertile soils respectively. This is an important finding which showed that oxidized copper ores can directly be used as slow-release micronutrients. A cheap process based on grinding to 200 mesh would be feasible. It is further seen that roasting at 750oC is suitable for treating sulfide ores. The acidification has shown much improvement in leaching and providing micronutrients to the soil.

Abstract: Expatriate-Repatriate Management (ERM) is increasingly considered an important branch of International Human Resource Management (HRM). With the rapid growth in the globalizing business environment, it is still an emerging field of research in the Sri Lankan context. This research paper is an attempt to find out some research gaps in the ERM process which are highly essential to address in the future empirical studies. The scope of the paper, thereby, was limited to empirical findings available in Sri Lanka and it resulted in identifying six gaps in the ERM process under the coverage of two theories namely, contingency theory, and social exchange theory. Empirical research findings of future research studies could fill these identified research gaps.

Abstract: Xenophobia, the fear for the stranger, the foreigner or fear of the unusual, manifests through attitudes of exclusion and acts of violence and intolerance towards other people and their culture. In the post-apartheid South African set-up, emotions of hatred and vilification of ‘blacks’ have played out in recurrent incidents of xenophobia. Natives have found a convenient scapegoat in the black immigrants who are subjected to dehumanizing practices that alienate them as ‘other’, resulting into psychic trauma and acts of self-destruction. That former victims of apartheid subjugation have become perpetrators of similar hatred against humanity exposes xenophobia as a complex psycho-social pervasion that requires a more conscious interrogation. Psychoanalysis explains xenophobia as one of the mechanisms through which perpetrators project their frustration and repressed emotions on people perceived to be different. The study reaffirms the scapegoat thesis and further explores other unconscious drives, uncanny expressions and implications of xenophobic hegemony on the characters as exemplified in the post-apartheid novels: Niq Mhlongo’s After Tears (2007) and Phaswane Mpe’s Welcome to Our Hillbrow (2001).

Abstract: This paper attempts to investigate the implementation of Process-Based Writing Approach (PBWA) to teach writing to students with different writing anxiety. This study focuses on analyzing the types of writing anxiety experienced by the students; cognitive writing anxiety, somatic writing anxiety and avoidance behavior, explaining the implementation of PBWA in writing instructions and investigating the effectiveness of PBWA to teach writing to the students with different anxiety. This study employs mixed-methods design. The research subjects were 23 students of XII grade of SMA Kolese Loyola. SLWAI questionnaire designed by Cheng (2004) was administered to analyze the types of writing anxiety experienced by the students, observation sheets were utilized to explain the implementation of PBWA, and pretest and posttest were conducted to investigate the effectiveness of PBWA to teach writing to the students with different anxiety. The findings showed that cognitive anxiety is found to be the most experienced type of writing anxiety among students. The dominance of cognitive writing anxiety was most possibly caused by fear of teacher’s negative comments, low self-confidence in writing and linguistics difficulties.

Abstract: This paper addresses the definition of internationalization as it encompasses both direct and indirect internationalization. Before the implementation of internationalization, the traditional view claimed that the state contracts should be governed by the law of the country in which the contract is performed. However, international law identifies the obligation of the host state to not to deny any foreigner of justice by identifying concepts such as denial of justice. Eventually, the aim of scholars and arbitrators favored developed countries was to withdraw state contracts from the domestic legal system and place them in the international sphere by applying some external law to regulate the state contract rather than the host state s law. They used concepts like "direct internationalization" and "indirect internationalization".

Abstract: In recent years, multinational corporations have faced growing criticism from consumers, local communities, NGOs, and even the United Nations for not paying attention to the negative effects of their business. In the ongoing race for profit, companies have been accused of both endangering earnings rights and destroying the environment. As a result of these criticisms, managers are slowly becoming aware that, on a global level, business decisions and activities can have unpredictable consequences at different levels of society and in a much larger area than where the company operates directly.

Abstract: Blue carbon ecosystems also known as coastal or marine ecosystems are biodiversity hotspots that render invaluable ecosystem services, and possessed high capacity for carbon sequestration and storage. Whereas societies are well informed about the roles and significance of terrestrial ecosystems in climate change mitigation, there is comparative lack of awareness, knowledge gap and absence of legislative framework at national and international level to protect and conserve blue carbon ecosystems and their resources. This study identifies blue carbon sources in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria and analyzed their ecological characteristics in relation to ecosystem services, carbon sequestration and storage and social economic significance. Primary data were obtained through physical observations and documentations of biophysical resources of blue carbon ecosystems, and over 70 publications on related subjects of blue carbon sources, carbon markets and climate change were empirically reviewed. A narrative analysis of the data were carried out and further discussed and characterized various threats to blue carbon ecosystems in the Niger Delta and implications for climate change mitigation and adaptation to people living in the region. It concludes with policy recommendations for conservation, restoration, protection and management of blue carbon ecosystems in the Niger Delta region.

Abstract: Gingival recession has been defined as the apical shift of gingival margin from its physiologic level (1 to 2 mm coronal to cementoenamel junction) causing pathologic exposure of root surfaces. Mucogingival esthetic surgery is all about treatment of mucogingival esthetic alterations. Mucogingival problems may be caused by gingival recession often in association with non-carious cervical lesion or by root caries or by altered passive eruption. Gingival recession can be treated by surgical or non-surgical means. Nonsurgical means include - restorations, crowns, veneers and gingival masks whereas surgical approaches includes various methods of increasing the width of keratinized tissue such as frenectomy in case of high frenal attachment & root coverage procedures.

Abstract: Recession is apical displacement of gingival margin to Cemento-enamel junction which is associated with certain etiological factors like vigorous tooth brushing habit, Aberrant frenum, Periodontitis, tooth position etc. Various procedures can be done to achieve root coverage by many procedures like Double papilla, Free gingival graft, connective tissue graft, pedicle grafts. Cohen and Ross described Double papilla procedure with success rate of 80% in covering denuded root surface. It is mostly used for single tooth recession to increase width of attached gingiva along with root coverage. This procedure is little sensitive as two adjacent interdental papilla need to be joined on mid surface of denude root to make it one flap.

Abstract: Periodontal plastic surgery performed to correct or eliminate anatomic, developmental, traumatic or disease induced defects of the gingiva, alveolar mucosa or bone”. The contemporary opinion is that even in the areas with insufficient or absent attached gingiva oral hygiene maintenance is possible but if the gingival tissue is thin, there is an increased risk of gingival recessions. The treatment of buccal gingival recessions one of the indications of PPS as it involves patient’s aesthetic concerns. The free gingival graft (FGG) is a technique introduced more than 50 years ago to address the lack of keratinized tissue by Bjorn in 1963 and was first described by Sullivan and Atkins in 1968. FGG can also be attempted for treatment of gingival recession and root exposure. It is a simple and highly predictable when used to increase the amount of attached gingiva.

Abstract: This paper examined determinants of foreign exchange rate volatility and Non-oil Export in Nigeria. The study used time series data covering 36years (1982-2017) collected from CBN. The method of analyses used was descriptive statistics as well as co-integration analysis (ARDL)The study also employed ARCH and GARCH model to determine the presence of volatility in the exchange rate.ADF and PPT were used to test the unit roots and determine non stationarity among the variables. Autoregressive Distributed Lag and bound test used to determine long run cointegration among the dependent and independent variables. The volatility of exchange rate was determined through Autoregressive Conditional Heteroscadasticity (ARCH) and GARCH 1(1) model on the non-oil export in Nigeria. The results show that foreign exchange rate, bank rate, inflation and foreign exchange volume has a positive relationship with non-oil export, however, GDP,M2 and Government expenditure has negative coefficient and statistically insignificant. The ARCH(1)1 and ARDL model indicated exchange rate and inflation has most volatility effect on non-oil export respectively .The government should pursue a rebound policy on exchange rate stability that encourages non-oil exports.
