This study aims to contribute to the field of contemporary art-technology by leaving a historical-artistic touch in line with the function of the fine arts on our ‘senses’ that were conceived, imagined, and took place on the stage by dint of human labor and creative ability during the absence of technology. The prominent outcome shows that an integrated Opera where optics and acoustics dominate and the production of spectacular effects depends more on the art of the stage machinist is among the auditory-visual spectacles of the scene that one which has the most need for ‘artificial visions’.The study has shown that the ideal of achieving a holistic work of art, by aestheticizing the ‘scenic space’ has been stated by the Italian scenographer Pietro Gonzaga (1751-1831) in one of his several theoretical treatises: “À Propos d'Optique Théâtrale”(About Theatre Optics) stamped in 1807 in St. Petersburg before Richard Wagner's (1813–1883) conception of the total work of art has been professed. The scenographer has particularly considered that the stage which contains the show and its simulation in the place where the event takes place could itself be expressive. The study concludes by referring to the clairvoyant point of view of a scenographer who could be regarded as the pioneer of modern day directing art, that the total work of stage art took place in 18th -19th centuries is envisaged to function as a kind of television screen.

COVID-19 pandemic has affected many sectors of life including education. Many countries had implemented the policy on distance learning. Distance education denotes the physical separation of the learner from the instructor, both by time and space. Information and communication technologies (ICTs) including online media are used to bridge the educators and the learners. The distance learning system forced the teacher to shift the traditional teaching method of face-to-face teaching to no-physical contact teaching in all stages of educations such as primary and secondary education, higher and vocational education, and special education. We found that teachers have been applied different strategies based on the unique challenges they faced. According to the COVID-19 situation, teachers from all stages of education have gathered all the solutions that could be applied. So that, it could help students to adapt to distance learning by transforming the traditional learning system to mandate distance learning system like nowadays when COVID-19 positive case could be controlled by contactless only.

The purpose of this paper is to provide a better understanding of how the financing of the compliance obligations which are related to “AML / CFT” (Anti-Money Laundering and Combating the Financing of Terrorism) does affect the financial performance of banks in Lebanon. The main question is: Does the compliance system play a positive impact on the risk management in Lebanese banking sector? Based on a sample of 66 respondents from BLOM Bank employees, the empirical results showed that the employment of a compliance regulatory system has increased bank’s costs. However, its implementation is not an option since it guarantees the compliance with the local, regional and international policies. Besides, the study revealed that there are numerous benefits associated with these costs that help banks to increase their awareness towards policies and regulations. These benefits are related to the high level of staff training, the closer due-diligence leveling, and the deeper contribution in combating tax evasion by implementing the CRS (Common Reporting Standards) standard in banks systems, which guarantee that information on financial accounts will be automatically exchanged between governments from a worldwide point of view

It is estimated that around 25% of the population worldwide experience adverse reactions to food, which are very diverse based on both etiology and clinical presentation. According to the pathophysiological processes involved, adverse reactions to foods can be broadly classified as sensitivities or intolerances, depending on whether they are immune-mediated, or not. Specifically, food sensitivities have become a growing clinical, economic, and social problem nowadays. Although the reason for the increased prevalence of well-determined food sensitives such as celiac disease and food allergies is not well understood, the role of microbes in both inducing and protecting from these conditions has been proposed. First, several studies suggest that the gut microbiota, the vast number of microbes that live in our digestive tract, influence the appearance of different adverse reactions to food. These studies are based on observational changes in the composition and function of the fecal microbiota of celiac, allergic and food intolerant patients when compared to controls or healthy participants. Second, infectious microbial agents have been related to the loss of oral tolerance towards dietary components and the occurrence of different adverse reactions to foods. However, how could microbes participate in food sensitivities and intolerances from a mechanistic point of view? Preclinical studies with animal models not only support observations in humans, they also show a causal role of microbes in the occurrence and course of these diseases, while informing the specific underlying mechanisms. The aim of this review is to summarize the scientific evidence that supports the role of microbes in the main adverse reactions to food described, with an emphasis on the underlying mechanisms. The discovery of the main molecular pathways involved in pathogenic reactions to diet foods will accelerate the development of new therapeutic approaches with the aim of preventing and treating food sensitivities and intolerances.

Objective: Regarding the 2011 census in Hungary, the number of children with movement deficiences can be around 7,000. These children with special health care needs are considered to be a vulnerable group even from a dental point of view. In our dental program, we gain comprehensive information about patients’ oral health, health behavior, and monitor dental care. Study design: A total of 199 children went through a full pediatric dental examination, children with cerebral palsy were categorized into five different levels (GMFCS) and children without motor disfunction into two groups. We analyzed the df-t and DMF-T values. Oral hygiene routine, dental care, gingivitis, demographic characteristics, nutritional habits odds ratio to df-t and DMF-T were surveyed. Results: The mean df-t and DMF-T was 1.87 and 1.15 out of a total of 199, and the group that scored worse was the GMFCS II. The mean RI (restorative index) was 18.12% and 27% for decidous and permanent teeth, respectively. The prevalence of gingivitis was 66.7%. Conclusion: The results of our research point to the fact that children with cerebral palsy have difficulties in developing and maintaining proper oral health due to their disadvantages and therefore require special care and attention.

This study aimed at identifying the work pressures among teachers of learning disabilities in English language in Irbid governorate from their point of view. The total number of the study population was (60) male and female teachers, while the study sample included (30) male and female teachers. To collect the study information, the researcher developed a questionnaire to reveal the level of work stress among male and female teachers, and it included (40) items. The study found that there are pressures at work for teachers of LDs in English language. These pressures are the poor achievement of some students, large financial obligations for teachers, poor standards used to promote teachers, the large number of lessons taught by the teacher per week, daily planning, and overcrowding of students in class. The study recommended holding training courses for teachers in the private sector, similar to their colleagues in other sectors, to improve the educational process, and so that teachers can keep pace with the rapid scientific and technological development that the world is witnessing around them

The purpose of this study was to examine how the four best teams in the 2018 Football Men's World Cup rotate by squad and how this impact the physical activity of the teams in consecutive rounds. The study sample consisted of the 31 players of the 4 best teams, who played in every tournament match, except for the third game of the group stage. The analysis included 186 observations and was carried out on the most exploited players (MEP) excluding goalkeepers, who played at least 450 mins (5 full matches) in the tournament. The analysis was conducted using data collected by an advanced motion analysis system known as STATS®. The selected physical activity parameters analyzed included: total distance covered (m/min), distance covered at various intensity ranges (m/min), top speed (km/h), and number of sprints performed. It was found that all four teams in the third match of the group stage have performed the largest number of rotations with most exploited players and introduced the highest number of rested players (7.75 ± 2.06). A significant increase was observed between the second and fourth match in the 0–7 km/h distance covered (37.99 ± 3.19–39.23 ± 3.35 m/min) and the top speed (28.12 ± 2.22–29.21 ± 2.64 km/h)—p < 0.05. Furthermore, MEPs in the knockout stage, used pacing strategies by increasing the amount of low-intensity running to maintain high intensity during the game. From a practical point of view, this investigation shows that squad rotation can be a valuable support to a pacing strategy by players.

This article analyzes and evaluates Henrik Ibsen’s most controversial drama “Ghosts” from naturalistic point of view. Naturalism views human life in relation to internal and external environment. It insists on the effect of the past that shapes the present life of human beings. Based on this philosophy of life, this article examines how the life of the leading characters Mrs. Alving and her son Oswald has been influenced. Mrs. Alving’s present values and views on life have a concern with conventional and religious past whereas Oswald’s philosophy of life is guided and governed by his dead father. This article also shows heredity and genetic transformation are biological facts that affect human life. Thus, the object of this article is to explore how human beings are controlled by the inescapable past.
