Space and Spatial Commitment in the Construction of Individual Memory

This study was conducted with the aim of determining the influence of the connection between human and construction on remembering the space. The problem was addressed in the way taking a stand against the construction and researching the level of influence on remembrance of the constituents that form the manner. A survey was prepared aimed at fixation of the constituents remembered about the space and determining negative and positive feelings towards the space. The study discussed within the frame of memory, spatial commitment and manner was conducted upon the individual’s spatial experience, following feelings and thoughts. In the study, the texts that tell of the construction were examined with the content analysis that was intentional for the determination of the architectural characteristics. It is seen that the construction’s genuine, differential points have been remembered intensely. In the study which space commitment was evaluated with the concept of manner, a “Semantic Difference Scale” was formed. At the end of the factor analysis, five manner factors about the construction were determined. Using variables about factor scores, user characteristics and remembrance of the space, a regression equation was formed in order to reveal the influence of commitment to the space in remembering the structure. The construction’s “importance for the individual” and “the manner belonging to the form’s being positive increased the memorability of the structure. Based on these findings, it has been revealed one more time that the influence of visual, physical and functional fiction of the construction on people should be considered. Key Words: Spatial Commitment, Memory, Attitude, Content Analysis, Logistic Regression.

Interpreters of Indigenous Languages (IIL). Actors of Change in Health

This study was performed by interviews of the volunteer indigenous interpreters of the Comisión Coordinadora de Institutos Nacionales de Salud y Hospitales de Alta Especialidad (CCINSHAE) (National Commission of the National Institutes of Health and High Specialty Hospitals). The questionnaire analyzed the mechanisms used by the interpreters to learn both languages, the importance of being bilingual on their personal and working lives, and the motives they had to assist indigenous population. The vast majority of the interpreters were women in their forties; we also analyzed their experiences as interpreters while members of an indigenous community, and the engagement they had to support their usual activities together with their role as interpreters. 34% demonstrated a command of Ñhañhu (Otomi), 22% of Zapotec, and 11% of Totonac, Chinantec, Mixtec, and Mixe, six of the 68 languages of Mexico. Key Words: Monolingual, indigenous, translation, language, Interpreters healthcare, Discrimination, Intercultural Situation.

Vision-Mission Statement and Formality of Strategic Planning as Predictors of Small and Medium Scale Enterprises (SMEs) Financial Performance in Lagos, Nigeria

Small and medium enterprises (SMEs) require strategic management in today’s dynamic and highly competitive business environment. The realization of the potentials and opportunities for SMEs in Nigeria to rebound and play the crucial role of growth, development and industrialization, wealth creation, employment generation requires a management paradigm shift. This paper establishes the relationship between vision/mission, formality of strategic planning and SMEs financial performance. Data were analyzed from 132 useable questionnaires out of 150 questionnaires administered on randomly selected SMEs owners and managers in Lagos, Nigeria. Correlation and ordinary least squares regression techniques were used to estimate the relationship between vision/mission, formal strategic planning and business financial performance. The decision criteria were tested at 5% significance level. The correlation coefficients reported positive and significant relationship between SMEs performance and its predictors with coefficient values of 0.59 and 0.43 for vision-mission statement and formality of strategic planning respectively. The regression result showed a positive and significant relationship between SMEs performance and its regressors with beta values of 0.35 and 0.34 correspondingly for vision-mission statement and strategic planning formality. It is recommended that SMEs owners and managers should always review and properly implement the vision/mission statement and strategic planning practices which will propel and sustain SMEs in the turbulent and uncertain business environment. Key Words: SMEs, Vision/Mission, Strategic Planning, Business Financial Performance.
