Resource Based View, Core Competence and Innovation: A Research on Turkish Manufacturing Industry
Gönül Kaya Özbağ

Abstract: The importance of organizational resources and capabilities are realized by business practitioners and researchers as they support organizational performance and competitive advantage. However, what exactly core competence is not clearly understood since terms such as resource, capability and competence are used interchangeably by researchers. From this point forth, this article provides a framework for seperating organization's core competencies from resource and capability. According to the research and analysis framework, the first step is to explain the relations and interactions among resource, capability and competence. Second we propose three emprical determiners such as uniqueness, inimitability and extendibility to the research model which Hamel and Prahalad’s suggest to evaluate a capability as core. Third, the proposed core competence framework serves as a tool for assesing the relationship between core competencies and innovation.

Are avoiding sunlight exposure and low physical activity resulting micro evolution in tropical country women?
Dina Keumala Sari, Harun Alrasyid Damanik, Nur Indrawaty Lipoeto, Zulkifli Lubis

Abstract: Previous studies have shown that low 25(OH)D serum levels may increase mortality and morbidity, especially in women. Low levels often occur during the winter and spring of temperate countries due to low sun exposure but there are many other factors linked with vitamin D deficiency that can occur in tropical countries. Objectives: To assess 25(OH)D serum levels in Indonesian women and determine factors that can influence these levels.

Chronic Toxicity of Synthetic Based Fluid (Parateq©) on growth of three life stages of T. guineensis
Vincent-Akpu, Ijeoma F.

Abstract: This study investigates the growth of three life stages of T. guineensis exposed to different sublethal concentrations of Parateq for 12 weeks in a static renewal bioassay. Parateq a synthetic based Fluid (SBF) was added to water to obtain the following sublethal concentrations 0.32%, 0.63%, 1.25 % and 2.5% vol/vol. Fry (0.64cm –0.65cm/0.52g – 0.55g) fingerlings (5.51cm–5.57cm/5.52g – 5.56g) and Post fingerlings (7.21 - 7.25cm / >10.5g) of T. guineensis were fed with NIOMR Feed. Proximate compositions of the feeds used were evaluated while the carcass composition of the fish was analyzed at the end of the experiment. Growth rates during the 12 weeks period were modest with fish in 2.5% of Parateq gaining the least weight. The highest percent growth rates were obtained from fish in control. The overall growth was significantly different between treatments and control. This study revealed that sublethal concentrations of toxicants will not only cause outright mortality but have significant effects which could lead to physiological dysfunctions in organisms that abound in the Niger Delta.

Applications of Teachers Knowledge: Constrains of Continuing Professional Development CPD within the University of Benghazi-Libya
Dr Ageila Ali Elabbar

Abstract: This paper presents the types of teachers’ knowledge and Shulman’s pedagogical content knowledge (PCK). It also explores how this knowledge can be further supported through (CPD) programmes, and the models that could be used for this. In addition, it aims to interweave the ideas of teachers’ knowledge and the possible models of CPD in order to reinforce these links in the context of Libyan English as Foreign Language University Teachers (LEFLUTs). This is important since some LEFLUTs may have different understandings or backgrounds concerning the importance of teachers’ knowledge and CPD activities. Challenges from cultural and educational influences among LEFLUTs emerged in my study which considers why some LEFLUTs may prefer just to teach without paying attention to their professional activities. Is it to do with the existing culture, which considers that university teachers already have sufficient knowledge for teaching? Is it due to the lack of such programmes within their universities?

A Strategy for addressing the problem of Building and Infrastructural collapse in Nigeria
Anyanwu C.I.

Abstract: This study was undertaken to establish how project management and the project manager can be used as a panacea for preventing building and infrastructural collapse in Nigeria. The paper is necessary because of the importance of proper planning and monitoring of project activities in order to avoid building and infrastructural collapse, project failure, project abandonment, project cost and time overruns, etc. The paper examines the different component parts that constitute project management in the building construction industry. The result of the study shows that project management is a major tool with which project managers can achieve successful building project delivery, and that the project manager’s position should be occupied by a professional in the building construction industry who has training in the project management body of knowledge. It is hoped that this paper will therefore, in no small measure, assist project managers, builders, clients and other stakeholders in the building construction industry in checkmating the problem of building and infrastructural collapse in Nigeria.
