    Manufacturing companies in Nigeria has witnessed poor financial performance, subsequent failure and liquidation which can be traced to weak internal control system, internal fraud, and non-compliance with corporate governance standard, lack of transparency, creative accounting and insider trading. The financial performance of manufacturing companies has been called to question on several occasions. The study examined the effect of internal control system on financial performance of manufacturing companies listed in Nigeria. The study employed ex-post facto research design, a target population of forty-three (43) manufacturing companies quoted on Nigerian Stock Exchange was used and a sample of fifteen (15) companies was selected from the population. The data was gathered from audited financial reports of the sample manufacturing firms for a period of ten (10) years. The study employed descriptive method of analysis to describe the data while inferential statistics such as multiple linear regression technique was used to test the hypotheses using Stata software. Inferences were made at 10% level of significance. The study showed that Risk management has significant and positive effect on financial performance of manufacturing companies listed in Nigeria giving the F-statistics value of 7.212 with probability value of 0.000 and Adjusted r2 of 0.151. Hence the null hypothesis of no significant effect is rejected. Board independence have statistical impact on financial performance with F-statistics value of 5.441 with probability value of 0.000 and Adjusted r2 of 0.113. Hence the null hypothesis of no significant effect is rejected. From the findings of the study, the study concluded that manufacturing companies that had invested on effective internal control systems have more improved financial performance as compared to those with a weak internal control system. The following recommendations were made based on the outcome of the study: Management should develop a mechanism to incorporate relevant feedback from the various stakeholders into their internal control system and Board of Directors of manufacturing firms should ensure that the internal control systems recommended by both internal and external auditors are periodically monitored and evaluated.

    Background-At the end of 2019, a novel coronavirus was identified as the cause of a cluster of pneumonia cases in Wuhan, a city in the Hubei Province of China. It rapidly spread throughout the world. Identifying patients at highest risk for severe disease is important to facilitate early, aggressive intervention and to mitigate the crises occurring throughout the world. Biomarkers were needed for patient stratification into those likely to develop severe disease and with high risk of mortality. Present study aims to find out those indicators. Methods: Total patients admitted over a period of 1 year from 1st April 2020 to 31th March 2021 in Dedicated COVID Hospital of RNT Medical College and MB hospital Udaipur was 4304 out of which 620 died and 3498 got discharged, 186 couldn’t be followed up as they took leave against medical advise. From death group (620 patients) and Survival group (3498 patients), 400 patients were selected randomly from each group and were analysed and comparison was made between both the groups including parameters like ALC(Absolute lymphocyte count), NLR (Neutrophil Lymphocyte)ratio and RDW(Red cell distribution width). Results: Median age in death and survival group was 62.03 and 47.18 respectively. Mean Absolute lymphocyte count was 0.88 and 0.93 in death and survival group respectively. Mean Neutrophil -Lymphocyte ratio in death and survival group was 8.37 and 4.34 respectively. Mean RDW- CV was 1.86 and 1.67 in death and survival group respectively. Conclusion: From the present study we conclude that Decreased ALC and Elevated NLR are a reliable indicator of death as an outcome in COVID 19 disease whereas RDW was high in COVID19 patients but had no significant relationship with outcome of the disease.

    The severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-Cov-2) responsible for the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) was first reported in Wuhan, China, in December 2019 and has since spread globally in a few short months. The use of negative pressure mask technique resulted in 98%reduction in the fine particulate aerosol stimulation and eliminated larger respiratorydroplet spread during stimulated ESS including during external drill activation. As global ENT services resume routine elective operating, we demonstrate the potential use of a simple negative pressure mask technique to reduce the risk of viral exposure for the operator and theatre staff during ESS.

    Background: About 99% of maternal mortality (MM) occurs in developing regions particularly Africa and Asia, during labor, birth and the 24 hours after birth. However, about 88% – 98% of these deaths are avoidable. World health organization (WHO) recommended that every pregnant woman must use Skilled Delivery Service (SDS) during labourreduce maternal and neonatal mortality. SDS are services provided to women during pregnancy, childbirth and immediately after child birth by accredited and competent health care providers. The purpose of this study was to assess the level of utilization of SDS by Pregnant Women at the health facilities in Central Region of Ghana. Methods: A descriptive cross-sectional design was used to conduct the study. A multi-stage sampling technique was used to sample 1100 pregnant women. Structured questionnaire was used to collect the data after pretesting was done and the collected data were analysed using frequencies and percentages. Results: The results showed that majority (80%)of the pregnant women had the intention to use SDS during labour. Among women who had given birth before, during their last delivery, about 69% used SDS at health facilities in Central Region of Ghana. Conclusion: In conclusion, Central Region is doing better than the national coverage of 56% but it is worth emphasizing that more need to be done to achieve the global target of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) 3.1 and 3.2. As a result, the governments through the Ghana Health Service (GHS) must implement strategic interventions that will motivate every pregnant woman in the country to use SDS.

    In this universe all plants In this universe all plants have medicinal value for cure, prevention and treatment of various diseases due to rich source of secondary metabolites such as alkaloids, glycosides, steroids, tannins and flavonoids which is potential source of drugs. Thousands of phyto-constituents and their potential uses have been described so far and many of them have been isolated which are being used in modern medicinal system for the treatment of various diseases and disorders. The major problems which occurs during use of medicinal active constituents from plants is very less yield, which ultimately makes the whole process and also the medicine very high in terms of cost and expenses. Therefore a large number of plant species (especially medicinal) are under the threat of extinction because of their over exploitation. To overcome this problem, various techniques have been employed including plant tissue culture, genetic manipulation, UV radiation exposure, use of fungus Piriformospora indica with jaggery solution etc. to get promising result. Dipcadi erythraeum is also known as Jangali Dungari comes under the Rare, Endangered and Threatened species by IUCN and WCMC. Dipcadi erythraeum plants have a long history of traditional uses in treatments of wide ranges of diseases. It has been proved by traditionally uses that Dipcadi erythraeum has great folk medicinal value such as leaves are used as laxatives; ointments for wounds, bulb and capsules are edible during famine, while whole plant is used for cough, biliousness, diabetes and urinary discharge. Chopped bulbs are fed to animal against stomach pain, scorpion stinging, sweating and Bulbs are also used as remedy for bronchial troubles, cardiac trouble. So the plant was propagated using fungus Piriformospora indica and in vitro micropropagation (plant tissue culture). But overall result showed that there is no possibility of growth of plant Dipcadi erythraeum. So it should be conserved through natural conservation like plant protection by over grazing, collection of seeds etc.

    In news reports there are common filaments of in cultural and political ideologies, based on the premise that linguistic choices in texts can carry ideological meaning. In such situations, ideologies are closely linked to power and domination, and they are located in language. News is a representation of the world in a language that is considered to be neutral and media/ted. Everything that is said or written is articulated from a particular ideological position. Differences in expression carry ideological distinctions and thus differences in representation. Newspapers have a responsibility to inform and enable people to make judgments about topical issues, this can however be achieved through a press free of vested interests from higher powers. The press is more than a business; it has a duty to the public as a major source of information on the main issues of the day. The wishes of the readers also need to be taken in to account. Exaggerated and highly coloured presentations of facts can have a powerful influence over readers. For most people, reading the daily newspaper whether in print or online constitutes their most substantial and significant consumption of printed discourse. This provides newspaper discourse with major ideological importance. In this paper, we examine the ideologies that underlie the depiction of the Boko Haram sect and Niger Delta Militants in Nigeria as found in newspaper reports. Data were generated from three Nigerian newspapers: Guardian, This Day and Daily Trust.

    V.S. Naipaul is doyen among postcolonial writers. His fiction and non-fiction is a record of his personal views and experience. His novels deal with the struggle of Indo-Caribbean people who are caught in the web of socio-cultural and ethnic forces of heterogeneous Caribbean society. He adopted the western form of writing novel, but his fiction is replete with ethos of Indian community in Trinidad. Naipaul’s early fiction is full of humour, kind irony. All the protagonists in his early fiction are male and female characters play peripheral action. The women are portrayed as victims under patriarchal system, and as marginalized victims. Therefore, I have chosen The Mystic Masseur, one of the early novels of Naipaul, to explore how V.S. Naipaul portrayed women. This paper ‘Portrayal of Women in The Mystic Masseur’ deals with how V.S. Naipaul portrayed and cornered women as peripheral characters.

    Agriculture sector in India is of such relevance that it is contributing employment to more than 50 percent of the work force and 17 to 18 percent of the Nation’s Gross Domestic Product. It is pertinent to understand that the land available for cultivation is abundant and in a country like India where large majority of the population belongs to middle and low economic class and youth is in search of job avenues, if youth is skillfully involved to initiate and go for adopting innovative agricultural activities, employability can be enhanced. At present, land available for cultivation out of the total land holdings in Himachal Pradesh is 75.3 percent of the total area and 85.9 percent of total area in India. Further, Net Area sown is 11.9 percent of the total cultivable area in the State as compared to 45.8 percent that of the Country. Agriculture sector is contributing nearly 16 percent to the Gross State Domestic Product of Himachal Pradesh. Based upon the criteria of land holding, households, cultivable cropping area, net sown area and irrigation, the research paper endows to examine the role of agriculture sector in the economic development of Himachal Pradesh.

    A study was carried out to assess the abundance dynamics of Vibrio and the impact of abiotic factors on these dynamics in some surface rivers in the city of Ntui (Center Region). A total of 7 sampling stations were chosen on the Sanaga, Bololo and Ntui-ossombo rivers. Physicochemical parameters such as temperature and dissolved O2 among others were considered. Heterotrophic aerobe bacteria were isolated and counted while bacteria of the genus Vibrio, were isolated, counted and identified by standard methods. The specific richness was assessed. The Shannon and Weaver H 'diversity indices and the Piélou equitability indices respectively made it possible to estimate the diversity and to assess the even distribution of the species in the stand in relation to an equal theoretical distribution for all species. Overall, the values of electrical conductivity (39 to 299 Μs.cm-1), were low and reflect waters of low mineralization. The temperature variations (25 to 30 ° C) observed in the three rivers studied are linked to those of ambient temperature, in fact, the thermal variations of lotic ecosystems match those of air. In total, 4 species of vibrioplankton were isolated in the water of watercourses during the study. These are Vibrio parahaemolyticus, Vibrio cholerae, Vibrio alginolyticus and Vibrio vulinificus in decreasing order of their rate of occurrence and abundance. The high occurrence rates of V. parahaemolyticus and V. cholerae (80%) at the level of the Sanaga River and other stations, would explain the sources of contamination of these pathogenic germs in this locality. It should also be noted that some abiotic parameters such as water temperature between 25 and 28 ° C is a good culture medium for microorganisms in the environment.

    One of the most unusual, illogical, and inexplicable phenomena in the history of thousands of years of Mongolian literature and culture is a unique (but rare) genre of oral and written literature called riddles. The riddle is based entirely on lateral thinking, in other words it is a manifestation of the lateral chaos of language as a result of lateral thinking. The most obvious linguistic and mental evidence for this pattern is the riddle. For this reason, we have tried to clarify the custom of honoring knucklebone from a nomadic ethnographic point of view what puzzled the knucklebone and what is puzzled with the knucklebone, and how knucklebone divination is practiced in the Mongolian folk riddles. In the study of the knucklebone riddles, the knucklebones were expressed anonymously and figuratively without using their names directly, and in addition to hiding and allegorizing the name of something else in the name of knucklebone, riddles also puzzled about games, divination, and symbols of knucklebone.

    Low back pain is defined when the pain happens in the area just below the ribs to the hips in normal human being in the back. This condition that can be caused by many causes like muscle and ligament injury or overuse. Whereas, Functional status refers to the ability of an individual to perform activities of daily living without any difficulty. If the individual experiences any kind of discomfort while performing these activities, that could be the result of many conditions and low back pain is one of them. The aim of this study is to find the prevalence and severity of low back pain among the population of two wheeler riders and assess its association with functional status. A survey was done among 50 two wheeler riders in Delhi. The questionnaire used for this study to detect the presence of low back pain and factors affecting the functional status was ODI (Oswestry Disability Index) and FSQ (Functional Status Questionnaire). Data analysis was done on Microsoft excel to find the result. Out of 50 respondents, the study determined that about 72% of the subjects experience disability and the 28% have no disability under which 36% subjects presented with mild disability, 24% with moderate disability, 10% with severe disability and 2% with the ODI score 35-50 as completely disabled. The prevalence of low back pain was more in the age group of 20-30 years. The study determined medium prevalence of low back pain in two wheeler riders and large strength of association was found between low back pain and functional status.

    Mobile Ad-Hoc Network (MANET) is a self-configuring network in which mobile devices are connected by wireless links. MANETs face several challenges due to open network architecture, shared wireless medium, highly dynamic network topology and so on. Recently a new class of routing algorithms based on swarm intelligence has emerged for routing problems in MANET. These algorithms are inspired from nature's self-organizing systems such as ant colonies, bird flocks, honey bee, and fish schools. Nature is of course a great and immense source of inspiration for solving hard and complex problems in computer science since it exhibits extremely diverse, dynamic, robust, complex and fascinating phenomenon. It always finds the optimal solution to resolve its problem maintaining seamless balance among its components. This is the thrust behind bio inspired computing mechanisms. Nature inspired algorithms are meta-heuristics that mimics the nature for resolving optimization problems opening a new era in computation. The common features of these biological systems which include their ability of self-organization, robustness, adaptation, self-healing, and local decision making, make them an appropriate source of inspiration for routing in MANETs. For the past eras, numerous research efforts have been focused in this particular area. Still being young and the results being identical amazing, broadens the scope and feasibility of Bio Inspired Algorithms (BIAs) exploring new areas of application and more opportunities in computing. In this paper provide a complete summary of the nature inspired routing algorithms for Mobile Adhoc networks. Then, numerous existing research papers related to bio-inspired models are also discussed and investigated to find the research gaps.

    The purpose of this study was to determine to what level different degrees of wind exposure influence morphology and secondary growth in Camelina sativa L. crantz. The hypothesis was that wind-stressed Camelina develops greater lignified areas and invests carbon and energetic resources in sclerification. Camelina was harvested in the late flowering stage and analyzed in terms of stem anatomy and morphology. The results indicated that there was no significant difference in morphology or sclerification between groups. A Principal Components Analysis was performed on the data in order to elucidate Camelina morphology.

    Population ageing, urbanization and migration are our time's greatest demographic definers. In the global background of ascending life expectancy, around 10 to 20% of geriatric population experiences mild cognitive impairment. The worldwide incidence is about 10 million, which rationales to one new case every 3 seconds. This unprecedented wave would endanger 82 million by 2030 and 152 million by 2050 (WHO - Global Dementia Observatory). The onus of enhancing cognitive reserve is borne by, one and all of us. With increasing age and lesser involuntary cognitive exercises we undergo day after day, be it from learning routes to GPS or from memorizing numbers to speed dials, the peril of sliding along the slippery slope of degenerative darkness looms at us, silently galloping behind veils of our sedentary, stressful, under stimulating choices in life. This article is a review on the current conditions surrounding dementia, from a public health risk perspective.

    Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to investigate the relationship between three elements of job design based on the job characteristics model (autonomy, task significance, and feedback) and employee performance. More so, the study aimed at determining the highest predictor of employee performance among the three elements investigated in this study. Design/methodology/approach: A a sample of 420 university lecturers within selected MENA states participated in this study, and SPSS version 21 correlation and regression analyses were used in analysing the data. Findings: the results revealed that there is positive and significant relationship between autonomy, task significance, and feedback, and employee performance. In addition, it found that autonomy is the highest predictor of employee performance. Research limitations/implications: Even though the job characteristics model comprises of five elements, only three were considered in this study, the findings of this study revealed how employee performance can be elevated through job design elements. Practical implications: For the human resource managers of higher institutions to achieve high level of employee performance, they should focus on designing jobs in such a way that employees are given the freedom to make decisions on their own, believe that their jobs have an impact on people within and outside their work environment. More so, higher institutions should employ a system through which the lecturers can be provided with both positive and negative feedback about their performance to motivate them to perform better. Originality/value: Several previous studies have investigated job design as a determining factor for employee performance in different contexts, but this study is one of the first to investigate the performance of university lecturers based on the elements of job design, there filling a gap in literature.

    The physiologic process of formation of blood cells is known as haematopoiesis. It proceeds through different stages starting from early embryonic life- mesoblastic stage (yolk sac), hepatic stage and myeloid ( bone marrow) stage. During embryonic and early foetal life, haematopoiesis occurs in the yolk sac (only erythroblasts) and the liver ( all blood cells). Some blood cell formation also occurs in the spleen (all blood cells), lymph nodes and thymus (most lymphocytes). Bone marrow starts producing blood cells around 3 to 4 month and by birth becomes the exclusives site of blood cell formation childhood, haematopoiesis becomes restricted to the flat bones such as sternum, ribs, iliac bones and vertebrae and proximal end of long bones. at other skeletal sites haematopoietic areas are replaced by fat cells. However when there is in creased demand for blood cells production, conversion of yellow fatty inactive marrow to red active marrow can occur. In extremely severe cases (severe chronic anaemia) resumption of haematopoitic activity in organs pother than bone marrow such as liver and spleen (extramedullary haematopoiesis) can occur.

    A remark at the outset: one should distinguish between digestive enzymes (formerly called ferments) and intracellular enzymes. The former have been in use for a long time; they include lipases, amylases, peptidases or the well-known bromelain. They work excellently in the intestine, but only partially pass into the blood and not at all into the body cells. They "crack" larger molecules and in this way "clean" the intestinal contents and to a limited extent the blood. Beneficial, of course. However, intracellular enzymes have far greater tasks; without them there is no life. The entire intermediary metabolism needs them and consists of them, i.e. energy production towards ATP (together with coenzymes) as well as protein production and the monitoring of DNA functions. Without them, the body's cells would be unable to function. At any moment, mainly as a result of oxidative and nitrosamine stress, thousands of DNA changes occur, the repair of which is the responsibility of enzymes.

    Background: Many procedures today can be performed using the Tumescent local anesthetic technique. Several studies using this technique resulted in a clean, safe, and effective operating field, and can reduce the cost of several elective operations. Therefore, the researchers wished to investigate differences in duration and onset of action of Tumescent anesthetics during surgery and before surgery in different dilution concentration groups. Methods: This experimental analytical study was conducted to compare the onset and duration of local anesthetic action with the Tumescent technique using lidocaine and epinephrine with dilutions of 1:500,000, 1: 1,000,000 and controls usinglidocaine only. The subjects of this study were male or female young adults who met the inclusion criteria and exclusion criteria with the research formula obtained 10 samples in each group. Tumescent technique local anesthetic injection was performed in the hand area. Onset and duration were assessed by sensory sensation using the cotton wool test. Results: Based on ANOVA statistical test on the onset of action, there was no significant difference in the mean of onset in the three groups (p<0,945) and found a significant difference in the duration of work of the three groups (p<0,00). Conclusion: There was a significant difference in the duration of work between lidocaine-only group and dilution concentration groups (p<0,00).

    Code switching between two languages is a common feature of the speech of bilinguals. It reveals some degree of their competence in both languages. This paper is an attempt to investigate the similarities between the functions of code switching in the language of bilingual students. It is based on the assumption that code switching is partially a conscious strategy to achieve certain goals. The subjects of this paper are students of the Advanced School of Translators and Interpreters of the University of Buea. Based on the author’s observations, a list of functions of the students’ speeches is provided. The results of this study confirm the results of previous studies such as Nwoye (1993) and Camilleri (1995). Code switching serves a communicative function in the speeches of the students in this study who switch from French to English and vice-versa to communicate either with their mates, friends or other users of both languages or one of the languages.

    This paper proposes that teaching involves problem solving and there are differences between novices and experts. It is evident that teachers use different styles and strategies and they would benefit from exploring these with knowledge of their individual differences. A diagnosis of teacher styles and strategies is made with a view of making recommendations for using these to teach dyslexic students. A conceptual model is proposed as a research tool to develop understandings of teacher styles and strategies and so develop a model to enable teachers to match their styles and strategies of teaching with the styles of dyslexic students. Of note is the Wholist-Analytic (W-A) and Verbal-Imagery (V-I) category of styles which Mortimore (2008) argues is important when matching students’ styles to teachers and so may help students achieve. The W-A/V-I model is diagnosed by the Cognitive styles Analysis (CSA) but caution should be taken if this instrument is used to develop dyslexic students’ knowledge of a topic (Mortimore, 2008). Analysis of cognitive styles of pre-service teachers suggests there are grounds for matching styles and strategies with dyslexic students’ styles as this may be helpful for learners; but this requires detailed exploration. Where students find it difficult to interact socially with other teachers it may be necessary to think about the structures of artificial intelligence models to help learners gain confidence and skills.

    Levofloxacin is a third generation fluoroquinolones antibiotic with a broad spectrum activity against different kinds of bacteria. It is very widely used antibiotic, Levofloxacin has activity that is to counter the production the bacteria by damaging the DNA gyrase enzyme responsible for the replication of the bacteria to avoid further multiplication of bacteria. Ofloxacin is widely used broad spectrum fluoroquinolones antibiotic used against variety of bacterial infections caused by gram negative and gram positive bacteria. Ofloxacin is an intermediate between ciprofloxacin and norfloxacin in activity against gram negative bacteria but it is comparable to or more potent than Ciprofloxacin for gram positive bacteria and certain anaerobes. Quality control is a system in which we make sure that the products are formulated and Quality control checked according the given standards. It will help in avoiding the risks involved in a Pharmaceutical industry that cannot be countered by simple testing of the product. Different brands of Ofloxacin and levofloxacin were collected from the market of Quetta Pakistan. Checked physiochemical properties of all collected brands of Levofloxacin and Ofloxacin and compared with each other according to the standard protocols. The physiochemical tests were performed weight variation, Hardness, Friability, Thickness, Disintegration and Dissolutions. The results showed that the all brands were within acceptable range including the dissolution of the both formulations tested. It is concluded that these type of research may be conducted in future to check the Quality control tests of available brands of different formulations. These types of research will contribute the community for the best selection of the medicine from the market and also help the prescriber to select a best drug among the available formulations.

    Money laundering is the illegal process of concealing the origins of money obtained illegally by passing it through a complex sequence of banking transfers or commercial transactions. The overall scheme of this process returns the "clean" money to the launderer in an obscure and indirect way. Money Laundering is a criminal act of misrepresenting illegally obtained money, such as from drug trafficking or terrorism, being obtained from legitimate resources. It is one of the illicit activities through which criminals disguise their original ownership of undeclared money by making proceeds appear to have been derived from lawful sources. The main objective of my research is To know the impacts of money laundering in India, To know the prevention and controlling methods of money laundering ,To analyse the money laundering. The researcher has done empirical study on money laundering in India. The primary information for the research is collected through online surveys from randomly selected respondents which included general public of different age groups with a well framed and structured survey questionnaire.

    A Amaurose Congênita de Leber (ACL) é a mais severa distrofia da retina e é majoritariamente autossômica recessiva, na qual um defeito gênico causa um significativo prejuízo funcional de fotorreceptores retinianos. Foi descrita pela primeira vez em 1869 e atualmente é responsável por cerca de 20% dos casos de cegueira nas crianças em idade escolar e pelo acometimento de 4,5 milhões de pessoas em todo o mundo, sendo que em populações consanguíneas ou em comunidades isoladas a frequência da doença aumenta de forma considerável. Até o presente momento, 23 tipos de genes foram descobertos como sendo responsáveis por desencadear a doença. Pacientes portadores de ACL(Amaurose Congênita de Leber), além de uma perda severa da acuidade visual desde o nascimento, apresentam uma variedade de outras alterações oculares como fotofobia, nictalpia e ceratocone, além de diversas anomalias retinianas como degeneração e atrofia corio-retiniana, maculopatia e pseudopapiledema do disco óptico. É possível, ainda, encontrarmos alterações no sistema nervoso central associadas à ACL(Amaurose Congênita de Leber), tais como, atraso no desenvolvimento e comprometimento da habilidade motora. O diagnóstico da doença é realizado através das alterações detectadas no teste de fundo de olho e no teste genético molecular. O tratamento consiste na abordagem terapêutica através de terapia farmacológica, reposição gênica e transplante de célula RPE (Retinal Pigment Epithelium). Atualmente, a terapia de reposição gênica para o RPE65 (Retinal Pigment Epithelium – Specific Protein, 65-KD corresponde ao tratamento mais estudado, mais seguro e eficaz em relação à ACL(Amaurose Congênita de Leber).

    It is generally acknowledged that tuition benefits students and primary pupils but little is known about the benefits of after school tuition and how parents and teachers could help primary pupils achieve in this activity. One way by which parents and carers feel they will raise a child’s standards is by private tuition. It is suggested that parents and carers would benefit from a training programme using cognitive style research aimed at facilitating interest and reflectivity. The training programme is based on data gathered by a survey which informs parents and teachers how to help pupils achieve goals set by the school. This paper suggests how organisational and parents’ goals for pupils may be achieved through after school tuition.
