Tentative Research on Synchronizing Reflective Effects of Natural
Model on Mechanical Realization and Satisfaction
Josh Smith, Ph.D. & Associate Professor
Abstract: In this article, the author will conduct initial and tentative research on synchronizing reflective effects of natural resources model on mechanical realization and satisfaction. Based on the research result on mechanical redesign from previous researchers of this specific field, a tentative research model was initiated and analyzed along the reflective discussion of positive and negative points of utilizing natural resources in realizing mechanical satisfaction. On one hand, there is a synchronizing reflection of the effects of natural resources model on mechanical realization. On the other hand, by using an recursive and repetitive method of reporting, the mechanical realization and satisfaction was measured figuratively and qualitatively within the scope of mechanical redefinition and reproduction. A physical model was built up to support the research hypothesis and the research result was coincidence with the preliminary expectation. The way of juxtaposing of both asynchronous and synchronous research design was excised with caution. Though there are a few flaws in designing the whole research process, the research result could provide insights to researchers to conduct further research in this field.

Badri Prakash Pokhrel, Ph.D. Scholar
Ji Young Jeong, Ph.D. & Professor
Abstract: The study mainly focused on the Nepalese tourism industry. The main objectives of this study were coverage on the following aspect; to increase the tourist’s arrival, economic growth, employment opportunities and gross domestic product (GDP) in Nepal. This study may help to the reconstruction of the structures damaged by earthquake, reduce the trade deficit and to suggest make the good tourism policy. We found that Tourism policy in Nepal is very good but not properly utilized. Nepal had high tourism seasonality because most of the people travel to Nepal in October month arrival rate is relatively higher than other months. Tourists visiting Nepal preferred autumn season from October and November in most destinations. Main festivals are in October so it is also the best time to visit Nepal. In this season the weather is mild, pleasant temperature, clear skies, the countryside is green and visibility is perfect in monsoon. The study also found out that tourism flow distribution or attention is not significant to tourism development in Nepal.
A Survey of Reading Comprehension Difficulties for Saudi Students with English Text
Muhammad Khalid Mehmood Sajid, Ph.D. Fellow
Abstract: The study investigates the reading interest of Saudi students’ reading interests in English, the obstacles hindering their reading efforts, the person who helps them choose their reading materials, the factors that determine their choice of reading materials and the reasons why they read. The statistical analysis of the questionnaire returned by 460 Saudi students revealed that the students have a broad range of reading interests. The top of which are stories, adventure books, books about religion, and magazines about the internet, newspaper world events, publications about innovation in technology, sports magazines, novels, poetry, and plays. On the other hand, they dislike books about economics, sociology, astronomy and mathematics. The findings also showed that the obstacles that hinder their reading efforts are of casual visits to the libraries, inability to get books quickly, non-availability of reading materials, time constraints, lack of local libraries, beliefs of having better things to do than reading. It was also noted that the difficulty of reading materials provided by Department of English Language and Literature, opinions that Reading Comprehension is not as important as improving other language skills were the hindrances that created obstacles for their text comprehension. Moreover, the beliefs that there is no relationship between reading and other language skills, and lack of family interest in reading were also the findings that showed the reading difficulties of Saudi students with English text comprehension. Furthermore, the research revealed that the students choose their reading materials by interest, teacher’s request, the main character, length and literary quality. The studies show that the students read for improving their language, learning something, improving their academic achievements, keeping in touch with the local, economic, cultural, scientific and political developments, improving their local status, keeping in view with what is happening around the world and entertainment. Also, the students depend on themselves, their teachers and their class fellows for choosing their reading materials. Recent studies have shown that there has been a continual decline in the average reading ability among the students studying in the schools, colleges and language centers across Saudi Arabia. The current studies assess Reading Comprehension of English Text of senior Saudi students majoring in English.

The Research on Cultivation of "Neo-Engineerism" Wihinin the Scope of Cultural Globalization
Chris Rodriguez, Ph.D. & Assistant Professor
Abstract: Due to the rapid development of economy, the new era of engineerism has come to state. On one hand, cultural globalization is gradually increasing the social need of professional engineers who have laid profound foundation in the field of technical engineering during the process of economic growth. On the other hand, due to the comparatively low realization of the important role of neo-engineerism in social process, there seems to be a mismatch between the fast growth economy and the lack of experienced and sophisticated experts in the field of engineering. In this article, the author tries to redefine the concept of neo-engineerism from the perspective of cultural globalization in the hope that the society should build up a completely new and solid belief in both cultural advancement and precise expertise in the field of engineeing. The understanding of cultural globalization and cultivation of neo-engineerism will open the perspectives for authorities to reconsider the new opportunities and obstacles in re-building the model of new-engineerism within the scope of cultural globalization.
