Author’s Details: Noor Fzlinda Fabeil1, Amer Azlan Abdul Jamal1Faculty of Business, Economics and Accountancy, Universiti Malaysia Sabah Jalan UMS, 88400 Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia 2Faculty of Business, Economics and Accountancy, Universiti Malaysia Sabah Jalan UMS, 88400 Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia

Abstract:
Many previous researchers found that having adequate managerial competencies including planning, organizing, directing and controlling skills in managing a business are significant predictors of firm survival. Arguably, it is assumed that micro-entrepreneurs in rural areas may have little or no managerial competencies than entrepreneur in urban areas due to their remoteness, especially in terms of constraints in formal education, infrastructure, skilled labor and motivation. Notwithstanding, despite of informal management practice among rural entrepreneurs, some of them still managed to run their business successfully through simple management. It is interesting to know how management is practiced by micro-entrepreneurs in rural area. Therefore, this paper aims to explore the management practice of micro-entrepreneur in Mengkabong Cove, Sabah, by applying the seven business management practice proposed by MacFarlane’s Model, namely planning, marketing, organizing, labor, production and operation, controlling and financial. This study involves qualitative face-to-face interview with an oyster farmer. The findings found that the respondent seemed to demonstrate several elements of management in his farming though in less formal way. In addition, the interview also found that the respondent emphasized on the importance of managing and planning things in order to avoid business loss in the future. It is hoped that this paper contributes to relevant agencies in entrepreneur development especially in rural areas to listen to entrepreneurs on the challenges and problems they face, thus could provide relevant supports or programs for them

2) Revisiting the Political Will in Educational Development: The Case of Cameroon
Author Details : Valentine BANFEGHA NGALIM  (PhD), Departments of the Sciences of Education, Higher Teacher Training College, Bambili, University of Bamenda, Cameroon.

Abstract.
This paper sets out to inquire whether the political will enhances or obstructs educational development in Cameroon. The problem identified here is that policy making is one reality and follow-up and implementation is another. The central arguments in this paper have been articulated within the context of political science theories like the Marxist conflict theory, John Rawls theory of justice, John Dewey’s theory of democratic education, Rousseau’s social contract theory and James Banks’ multicultural education theory. Both qualitative and quantitative methods of research have been used in this study. Questionnaires, interviews and focus group discussions and participant observation constituted the research instruments. A thematic analysis supported by descriptive statistics was used to present and discuss the facts studied. This research questions the fairness in policy-making and wonders whether the political will follows the right procedures to enact relevant policies for educational growth. Findings prove that there is more to be desired as far as policy making and implementation of the policies in Cameroon is concerned. This paper concludes that in order to ensure fairness and quality in the provision of educational values, the political will has to be strong as far as justice, fairness and the provision of educational opportunities is concerned in Cameroon.

Abstract
Evidenced with an increasing longevity globally, especially in India health, care needs to strengthened among geriatric population. Various factors such as pain, obesity, decreased balance, living alone, effect of medication, osteoporosis can lead to fall which can devastate life of elderly.
Aims and objective:  This original case study strives to evaluate the efficacy of physiotherapy on falls prevention means of, with clinical and functional prognosis of this subject.
Materials and methodology: Specific strengthening, core and proprioceptive exercises were used with a weekly twice frequency. The subject was treated for each session with 25-30 minutes duration of exercises, during the period from October 2016 to march 2017.
Results: Pre and post mors falls prevention scale were evaluated and a 3 fold decrease in the risk for fall was recorded.
Conclusion:
As the subject has benefited against fall by specific non- pharmacological means with physical exercises, the outcome of the study has pointed with huge impact on not only falls prevention, but an improved confidence and even enhanced quality of life of the study subject, hence evidencing specific physical therapy measures of more beneficial among elders.

Abstract
This manuscript explores the effect of Country-Of-Origin on perceived quality & perceived value. In automotive among Iranian consumers.   Consumer attitudes to local and foreign products and the likely “country-of-origin” effect in Buy “Local” and “Made In …” companies are surveyed. So, the importance of understanding differential consumer perception and evaluation of products has been well illustrated in consumer behaviour literature. The hypotheses of this research cover four main cores. Structured questionnaires and simple random sampling were used. A sample of 381 Iranian students in Selective University evaluate perceived quality associated with the value of vehicles came from Korea and Iran. Questionnaires were distributed with simple random sampling method Data were analyzed based on Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS, V. 21). The author recommends future researchers examine the relations of the research in studies focusing on other products, markets.
Keywords: Country-Of-Origin, perceived value, perceived quality

Abstract
Two adverse reaction cases of rabies vaccination were reported. The injection site in the buttock of a thirsty-eight-year-man reddened and swelled one day after having given the second dose of rabies vaccine. He had a low-grade fever of 38°C, skin presented flushing locally, and conjunctivas swelled. However, the symptoms were controlled, and the conditions were improved after the combined treatment of dexamethasone, antibiotic and vitamins C of three days. The injection site in the buttock of a sixty-year-man reddened and swelled one day after having given the second dose of rabies vaccine. He had a low-grade fever of 37.2°C, and skin also presented locally flushing. Nevertheless, the man recovered fully after the combined treatment of dexamethasone, antihistamines, and vitamins C of three days.

Abstract
The aim of the current study is to examine the usage of promotional references external to and internal to the retail store setting by selected psychographic characteristics of the retail apparel consumer. A national random sample of 457 male and 170 female consumers participated in the study. Results indicate that product involvement has an effect on the internal and external promotional references used by consumers. Furthermore, results indicate that consumer’s use of promotional activities both internal and external to the retail store setting .Questionnaires were distributed with simple random sampling method Data were analyzed based on Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS, V. 21). The author recommends future researchers examine the relations of the research in studies focusing on gender and another promotional reference
