The purpose of this sequential explanatory research study is to predict the psychographics and demographics that are associated with performance among faculty in Dubai Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) and thereafter to develop a regression model. Using the purposive sampling, twenty faculty members among Dubai HEIs were used to answer the validated and tried-out interview guide which results were coded, interpreted, and clustered into themes. The research findings reveal that professional qualification, commitment, job satisfaction, motivation, personal differences, and perceived fairness in management emerged as psychographics that influence faculty performance. The psychographics and the demographics were tested whether these predict faculty performance. Using stratified sampling, not lesser than one hundred forty-nine (149) faculty members were selected to answer the validated and tried questionnaire. Using MANCOVA, the figures disclose that the educational level, professional qualification, commitment, job satisfaction, motivation, and perceived fairness in management are predictors of faculty performance. The regression model of the study is Faculty Performance = 32.076 + 12.977 Educational Level + 2.070 Professional Qualification + .967 Commitment – 10.388 Job Satisfaction + 6.926 Motivation – 1.302 Perceived Fairness in Management. The findings of this study would contribute to the identification of criteria in the hiring of faculty in Dubai HEIs.

Filariasis is an infection caused by a filarial parasite known as Wuchereria bancrofti transmitted by mosquitoes. During the year 1998, there were 44 provinces in the Philippines infected with filariasis. On the year 2005, there were 645, 232 Filipinos infected and 30 Million were at risk of the disease. Despite the initiatives by the National government and NGO’s, filariasis remains the 2nd leading cause of permanent disability in the Philippines (Galvez Tan, 2015). In the community of Mainit Iligan, City, the case was first noted on 2012 with only 30 cases. By 2015, the number grew to 435. Initiatives were undertaken by the LGU, Community Council and Schools to address the problem. Given the vector of the disease, the community engaged in clean-up drive in their houses and schools. The LGU provided medications and treated mosquito nets. During the recent administration of the test, results have shown that the cases decreased to 48 as of December 15, 2015. Based on the conducted case study, the researcher concludes that the entire community has to accept the free medications provided by the LGU and should cooperate in maintaining a clean surrounding and proper hygiene to eradicate filariasis.

The study determined the presence of theory-practice gap in physical therapy education in the Philippines from the perspectives of three different groups: interns, clinical instructors, and internship coordinators. It utilized both quantitative and qualitative research designs using survey, interviews and focus group discussions in collecting data. The Clinical Internship Evaluation Tool was used as the primary data gathering instrument to measure the actual competencies of the interns. A survey questionnaire and interview guide was used to ascertain perceptions of the stakeholders on the clinical education process. Focus group discussions and interviews were audiotaped, and verbatim transcripts were produced. Descriptive statistics and t-test was used for data analysis. The result of t test revealed that the interns’ actual competencies are significantly different from the standards of competence expected of a competent clinician. Moreover, identified as the most problematic professional behavior and patient management skills were initiative and patient evaluation, respectively. Further, there were a pronounced gap between what they learned in school and what they are expected to do at the clinical sites. The highlighted gaps can contribute to quality appraisal, conformance to standards and enrichment of physical therapy education. Schools must facilitate better teaching-learning by more didactic instruction, laboratory skill mastery, and modification of academic contents. Clinical instructors in affiliation centers should have adequate education and preparation for their supervisory and teaching roles to enhance the clinical education process effectively.

Sexual adventurism among young people of today seemed to penetrate even the religiously and culturally conservative countries. Thus, it is not surprising that early pregnancy among college and university students becomes a growing issue worldwide. Things become complicated for students who got pregnant while studying because they will be forced to either temporarily or permanently quit from school. The study examined the transition experiences of eight Filipino single and unmarried college students who stopped from their schooling because of early pregnancy but chose to come back to finish their studies. Results revealed that early pregnancy was considered by the participants as a tragedy resulting in negative feelings and thoughts. Some participants thought of and even attempted abortion. However, they did not succumb to their heartbreaking situations but decided to rise and continue their drive towards the realization of their dreams. Their children and their loved ones as well their earnest desires to afford better future for their family with or without their partner’s support have motivated them to endure the difficulties during their comeback to school. As a result of this study, Cor Jesu College has formulated policy on student pregnancy and crafted student support program for pregnant students and students who are already mothers taking into account their concrete needs.
