The research paper is premised on authentic leadership as a modern management tool that is most likely to improve outcome and productivity in organization. The researchers formulated three research objectives, which also guided the formulation of research questions and hypotheses. The instrument for data collection was questionnaire administered randomly to respondents in ten cities in Nigeria. The researchers tested the three hypotheses developed for the study using analysis of variance (ANOVA) and the major findings include, (1) authentic leadership in an organization does not encourage or lead to corporate deficiencies and management malfeasance, (2) authentic leadership in practice does not degenerate to decline in productive tendencies and followers motivation, and (3) authentic leadership traits, such as vision, self-confidence, decisiveness, and good sense of judgment, positively influence outcome of events in work situation. In conclusion it was recommended that at all time the leader of a team in a work environment should maintain a high degree of truthfulness and consistency in actions and behaviour in order to command followership.

Paper Title :: Vegetable Cover of Soils in the Kwilu Valley in Bulungu Territory/ Rd. Congo

Page Number :: 12-21
Through spatio-temporal analyses, the present study focused on the evolution of the vegetation cover of soils between 2001 and 2018. The Mikwi, Kwilu-Kimbata and Kilunda Sectors in the Bulungu Territory, Kwilu Province in the Democratic Republic of Congo constitute our dition. The area thus defined fits well into the Kasai Sector, the Regional Center of Guinean-Congolese Endemism. The estimated area is equivalent to 385101.8 ha. The main objective of the study consisted in discovering the direction of the evolution of the plant cover by quantifying the reduction of the area between 2001 and 2018, in order to foresee actions that could mitigate the effects of the original causes. The material used for this research consisted mainly of botanical samples for scientific identification and characterization, vegetation maps of the Kwilu Province, satellite images covering the study area. Surveys of the sites were carried out based on the observations of the constituent elements of the environmental factors. The results obtained show that the base and terminal years are marked by the predominance of the light green color which corresponds to herbaceous formations. Despite this prevalence of the light green color between the two years, the difference in contrast is very significant, reflecting a regressive evolution of the forests marked by a decrease in the bright green and light green colouring (secondary forests). Statistical analyses indicate that the rate of deforestation between the two reference years is 23.90% with an average annual rate of deforestation per hectare of 1.32%. Applied analysis of variance shows a significant difference between the two years, with ANOVA (f=1.865; df=6.392; p value=0.9997). The expansion of agricultural areas, the exploitation of timber and fuelwood, and the manufacture of charcoal are indicators of the degradation of these forests that induce regressive forest dynamics. These disturbances have effects on biological resources, agricultural production, climate and water.

The unorganized sector becomes the central part of the Indian economy, where household-based manufacturing and non-manufacturing activities are being done. National Sample Survey Organization (NSSO) in 2009-10 shows that the total employment in India was 46.5 crore, which consisted of 2.8 crores in the organized/formal sector while the remaining 43.7 crores in the unorganized sector. The unorganized sector employment sequences have comprised of agriculture 24.6 crores, construction 4.4 crore, manufacturing, and service sectors. Many studies indicated that women workers in unorganized are busy with rag works, pickers, domestic services, coolies, vendors, beauticians, construction working and garment works. Almost all studies and research have been agreed that women workers in unorganized sectors face with almost same challenges and problems due to lack of education and skills, but it should be mentioned that even unfair working condition, low wages, discrimination, hard work and unlighted life, their earned income contribute to total household income. This study tries to explore the causes of participation of women in the unorganized sector, especially in domestic servants, and its effects on household income and their children's education, which makes the challenge to contemporary India. So, this study based on a survey approach to gathering information through a structured questionnaire directly from the households, servants, who already involved in the field-work in New Sir Syed Nagar, Aligarh. The result of the survey will be analyzed using descriptive statistical tools.n

Page Number :: 53-58
Pneumonia is widely known as an acute respiratory infection or inflammation that attacks the human lungs and has become The Forgotten Silent Killer of Children. UNICEF 2019 stated that 15% of toddler deaths are caused by pneumonia or around 802,000 child deaths under five years of age worldwide with a 10,4% Incidence rate. The incident of pneumonia occurs in Asia and Africa, specifically in the middle–low-income countries. One of the risk factors of pneumonia among toddlers was residential factors. This study aimed to determine the residential factors which were associated with pneumonia among toddlers through a meta-analysis approach. The meta-analysis was conducted by collecting 22 case-control studies from several journals. The combined effect of odds ratios was calculated through a fixed effect model and random effect model using Microsoft Excel Epiyudin. Based on the results of the analysis on 8 variables of residential factors which were associated with pneumonia among toddlers, it was found that odds ratio and confident interval of the house occupancy density 2,29 (95% CI 1,70–3,06); room occupancy density 1,94 (95% CI 1,41–2,68); humidity 1,87 ( 95% CI 1,35–2,59); the intensity of lightning inside house 11,12 (95% CI 8,45–14,64); ventilation 2,46 (95% CI 1,94–3,11); house temperature 1,93 (95% CI 1,42–2,64); house floor 2,18 (95% CI 1,59–2,97); and type of wall 1,92 (95% CI 1,37–2,68). These results can be used as a screening method and appropriate intervention for pneumonia among toddlers.

This study aims to determine the effectiveness of emotion regulation as a strategy for adolescents in managing every emotion that is being experienced. The research subjects were six participants with the criteria of adolescents who have high emotional regulation scores, namely> 27 based on the mental emotional scale measurement published by the Indonesian Ministry of Health. The results of this study indicated that there was an increase in the emotional regulation scores experienced by the six participants. Data analysis was also carried out with the SPSS version 21 program. The data analysis method used to see the differences in the pretest - posttest in determining the outcome of the intervention was the non-parametric test using the Wilcoxon test. The analysis showed that the value of Z = -2.675 with a significance of p = 0.007 (p <0.05). This indicates a significant difference between emotional regulation experienced by participants before and after following the group therapy process.
