Using today's video games in the classroom is beginning to become a reality. It’s perceived as a way to approach technology from early childhood and drawn as a complement to the curriculum development of the young. This new perspective is becoming a trend in the mind of the teachers, who are gradually incorporating it into the classroom as a tool. This article presents the results of an experience carried out with students from elementary school. The overall objective was to determine whether video games could become an additional tool in curriculum development for children during this educational stage, as seen from the perspective of future teachers doing initial elementary education training, and if its integration would determine behavioral patterns towards the development of the socialization process. A Likert scale questionnaire was constructed in response to an ex post facto research model. The initial results obtained demonstrated the willingness of the current students enrolled in the education program to employ video games in their classrooms, after a didactic introduction to the use was given, in addition to confirming the hypothesis in regards to socialization, pointing which are behavioral modulators, stereotypes and peer group views, among others aspects.

Drawing on the concept of program integrity, this paper assessed whether or not the Natural Family Planningprogram of a church organization met the felt-need for family planning of married couples as its intended clients.Program integrity is the practical concept that programs should be organizationally and structurally sound to meet theneeds of their intended recipients. It includes the five key elements of fidelity, dosage, reception, quality of serviceand program differentiation. Multiple focus group discussions were conducted with the service providers and marriedcouples to gather data on its objectives, processes and outcomes. Except for the element of fidelity to the program’sexplicit objectives and values, the data clearly and consistently suggest that, in the case under observation, theprogram did not adequately meet the felt-need of the married couples for family planning in terms of the fourelements of dosage, reception, quality of service delivery and program differentiation. Related to the five elements ofprogram integrity, implications to theory and pastoral practice were drawn and specific recommendations made toenhance processes and achieve desired outcomes.

The following paper focuses on the conceptual structural metaphor A HUMAN BEING IS A PLANT (Krzeszowki1997), which is related to the Great Chain of Being metaphor (Kövecses 2002). The assumption being that the sourcedomain of PLANTS is well-grounded in people’s everyday experience, it is well-represented in cognitive storagestructures such as categories, frames or Idealized Cognitive Models. Therefore, it was assumed that establishing theset of correspondences across the domains in order to re-create the mapping process should conceptually not poseconsiderable difficulty. The primary objective of the undertaken research was to compare a sample of formulatedelaborations of the metaphor between the English and Polish language on the basis of data in the form of sentencescollected from respective online language corpora. This comparison was feasible due to the level of backgroundknowledge possessed by the authoress as a native speaker of Polish and second language learner of English.

The public service is the main tool governments use to implement various national development policies and deliverservices. An efficient public service requires a good interface between the political and administrative leadership toensure that polices are formulated and implemented properly. The relationship between politics and administrationhas been a controversial subject in public administration. This paper examines the role and impact of politics onpublic service human resource management systems in Malawi. How people are recruited, selected, appointed,oriented, trained, promoted rewarded or disciplined affect their commitment, motivation and productivity. While atthe formal level, ministers do not have prominent role in recruitment, promotion, demotion or transfer of publicservants, in practice, political interference in appointments, promotion, transfer and demotion of public servants iswidely perceived in the Malawi public service. The paper concludes with optimism that if the Vice President-ledsystem-wide public sector reform recommendations are implemented properly, some of the challenges regardingpolitical interference in public sector human resource management will be reduced.

Consumer credit is debt that is obtained by persons who intend to spend the money immediately. Assessingconsumer credit tells us imperative things about our economy. If consumers have the capacity to borrow effortlesslyand refund those debts on time, then the economy should be stimulated and we will have growth. Consumers are theinstrument and brainbox of the economy, when credit is unavailable, consumers will face foremost complications inborrowing. In this circumstance, consumers would consume less since they have less access to credit. For this reason,manufacturers will sell less, and produce less. The importance of a viable consumer credit system cannot be overemphasized. This paper hypothesizes that certain identified factors militate against the development of a strongconsumer credit system in Nigeria. It examines and analyses these challenges and exposes their negative roles in thedevelopment of a strong consumer credit system. It focuses on strategies that can improve consumer access to creditfacilities and concludes that there is need for a paradigmatic change. It therefore makes recommendations that canchallenge Nigerian policy makers to improve on, or evolve a stronger consumer credit system.
