Undergraduates’ Interest in Pursuing Academic Career: A Literature Review
Prior to reviewing factors that may attract undergraduates to academic career choice, the study discusses some theories related to how career aspiration develops leading to career choice decision. Studies on Generation Y indicate that current undergraduates who are from this cohort depend on their relationship with role model when making career decision. Healthy relationship between mentor and mentee ensures a continuous guidance which leads to the positive decision making. In addition, a flexible work arrangement is preferable since this generation requires a career that provides work life balance. Noteworthy, undergraduates’ career decision-making self-efficacy may play a significant intervening role with regard to academic career. Information gathered from this study could benefit the recruitment exercise of future academicians in terms of recruitment initiatives, socialization strategies, and orientation structures. Hence, these may not only ascertain an ample number of academicians in the future but also enhance professional satisfaction and fulfilment within the academic profession. Key Words: Academic Career Choice; Role Model; Workplace flexibility; Career Decision-Making Self-Efficacy; Undergraduates of Generation Y.

Definition of Object Language Based on the Component Analysis Theory of Meaning in Malay Monolingual Dictionary
This study wishes to clarify the definition or description of the object language between two Malay monolingual dictionaries, namely Kamus Dewan, 4th Edition (KD4) and Kamus Besar Bahasa Indonesia, 4th Edition (KBBI4) that have been known to be credible both in Malaysia and Indonesia. Researcher will analyze the definition of object language using the Component Analysis Theory of Meaning led by Nida (1975) on the descriptive basis. Object language is the language which describes the lexical item or entry. A. total of 1087 entries were selected using simple and systematic approaches. The study adopts the library and content analysis methods. Our methods are literature review and content analysis. The objective clarifies the description of object language and the defining entry based on both dictionaries. The results show that indeed, there is a similarity in the arrangement of the object language, but there are similarities and differences about the component meaning entries in KD4 and KBBI4. An advantage of the analysis is to help the lexicographer improve a dictionary for it to be better and more complete, especially among the Malay monolingual dictionaries already available. Key Words: Malay Monolingual Dictionary, Object Language, Definition, Entry, Component Analysis of Meaning.
The Role of Educational Computer in the Effectiveness of Educating the Kindergarten Child A Field study.

Two instruments were used, one for the families of children enrolled at kindergartens, the other for kindergartens’ teachers. A child observation card regarding the effectiveness of the computer in educating the child at kindergartens was also used. The study concluded that the educational computer effectiveness in bringing up and teaching the kindergarten child was in general, positive. It also showed no statistically significant differences among the responses of both of the families and teachers of kindergarten children towards the effectiveness of the educational computer’s role in the lives of those children.

Revealed Preference Theory, Answering the Economics Question
Oskar Morgenstern (1972) in his article “Thirteen critical points in contemporary economics. An Interpretation” pointed out a problem in Revealed preference theory. He wanted to find out the true nature of choice. In his article he tried to know whether consumer‟s choice actually reveals their preference. Thus in this review article we try to proffer solution to this question. The question goes in this form „‟ Does choice truly reveal consumer preference when the consumer is able to afford all of the available options? For example, if a consumer is confronted with three goods and can afford to purchase all three (A, B, and C) and he choose to first purchase A, then C, and then B - does this suggest that the consumer preference for the goods is A > C > B? The debate rests on the fact that since the consumer can afford all three goods and does not need to make a preferential decision, does the order of consumption reflect any preference? This paper solves this problem by proving that choice is determined by Present Moment Factors that is composed of factors mentioned in the study and preference is revealed or determined by utility. Key Words: Present Moment Factors, Physical evidence of utility, Null choice hypothesis, Alternative choice hypothesis.
