The Road to Subservience <p>This article focuses on the subject of labor and social inequalities through an overview of classical sociological approaches and certain important recent Greek studies, having as their central subject the itineraries to subservience of immigrants employed in personal services. The work force, undergoing radical change during periods of crisis, lies at the core of the classical sociological approaches, while the immigrant work force – and, mostly, people working in personal services and composing, through certain itineraries, a new service staff in Greece – lies at the core of the recent Greek studies. The question is how exactly this shift happens, that is how an employment relationship turns into subservience.</p> Aris Asproulis ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2022-08-09 2022-08-09 26 32 10.9734/arjass/2022/v18i130324 Factors Affecting Technological Stress among Public School Teachers during COVID-19 Pandemic <p><strong>Aims:</strong> The present investigation aims to study the factors affecting technological stress among public school teachers during the covid-19 pandemic. This study hopes to address this gap wherein the result is timely, relevant, and as a potential basis for possible interventions.</p> <p><strong>Study Design:</strong> The study employed a descriptive-correlational design.</p> <p><strong>Place and Duration:</strong> This study occurred in Region XI, Davao Del Sur, between 2021 and 2022.</p> <p><strong>Methodology: </strong>A total of 174 public school teachers participated in the study's data collection. Using an adapted survey questionnaire, distributed using GOOGLE forms, the demographic profile and the level of technostress were collected among those who participated in the Health Psychology Symposium led by the researchers.</p> <p><strong>Results: </strong>The findings revealed that the majority of the respondents were young adults, female, and were Teacher 1. Also, the test of significance revealed that the p-value was less than the 0.05 level of significance, thus indicating that there is indeed a significant relationship between age and the level of technostress of teachers.</p> <p><strong>Conclusion:</strong> The study concluded that age-specific interventions that may improve public teachers' technology usage or equipping them with skills to overcome stress must be perused.</p> M.

The design of this research is Descriptive Design. The six towns of Ilocos Norte, Bacarra, Dumalneg, Pasuquin, Banna, Marcos, and Solsona, were selected to conduct the study. The researchers employed informal interviews and focus group discussions. The research mainly identified rural street games played in Ilocos Norte, Philippines: hide and seek, line crossing game, cow jumping, onion base, and kick game. Playing enhances the intellectual domain, physical domain, and some Filipino values of the players. This research's importance may also reduce to its specific aim, which is exercising socialization. Better communication starts in a simple game. Therefore, playing rural street games carries with it the best practice on how we preserve, strengthen and exercise our traits as Filipinos.</p> Francis Dave Mabborang Aldrich Suarez Marc Clinton Dacuycuy Dan Jerome Malapira Romnick Agag ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2022-08-03 2022-08-03 10 17 10.9734/arjass/2022/v18i130322 An Evaluation of Built Environment Students’ Training in Building Maintenance (A Case Study of Federal Polytechnics in Osun State, Nigeria) <p><strong>Aims:</strong> This study is aimed at evaluating the training acquired by built environment students in maintenance courses to determine areas of training inadequacy and improvements.

In other to determine the reliability of the data collected, the study sought information on the learning outcome of students in maintenance specifically, student competence area in the training of maintenance, and the barrier to student competence in the maintenance training.</p> <p><strong>Place and Duration of Study:</strong> Data is collected through well-structured questionnaires administered to the selected department in the built environment in Federal Polytechnic Ede. 100 questionnaires were administered, while 90 were duly completed and returned for analysis.</p> <p><strong>Data Analysis: </strong>The data was analyzed using Statistical Software for Social Sciences (SPSS) and an excel statistical package for prediction.</p> <p><strong>Results:</strong> The observed that built environment students are not sufficiently trained in some topics in the Building maintenance courses. Also, students are not competent in the ability to prepare documents for work alteration, maintenance of high rise building and estate roads. The major barriers to the competence of students in building maintenance are lack practical in maintenance, the lack of student’s interest in the course, lack of conducive environment and limited time for learning.</p> <p><strong>Conclusion: </strong>The study concluded that Built environment Students did not receive adequate training in building maintenance courses and recommended that sufficient time should be allocated to carryout practical works in building maintenance and the adoption of training methods to enhance the learning and competency of students in carrying out maintenance work.</p> B.

The respondents of the study were 366 randomly selected third-year college students who had already taken the Religion or Theology subjects as mandated curriculum for the Catholic educational institutions. Results showed that the religious knowledge of students when taken collectively is categorized as proficient in terms of their knowledge of God, Morality, and Sacred Scripture. However, students need to enhance their knowledge of the Church and Sacraments. Furthermore, when grouped according to gender, female students are more knowledgeable of their Catholic faith than male students who fall under the Needs Improvement category. According to school origin, both students from private and public schools fall under the Needs Improvement category, although students from private schools have a stronger grasp of the Catholic faith than students from public schools. Lastly, in terms of religious affiliation, both Catholic and non-Catholic students still fall under the Needs Improvement category, however, Catholic students have more knowledge of the Catholic faith than non-Catholic students. There is a significant difference in the religious knowledge of students when they are grouped according to gender, and school origin. This means that the college students whether male or female, from private or public schools, differ in their religious knowledge. Moreover, a significant relationship exists between religious knowledge and the attitude of students. This indicates that a Catholic student who has the knowledge and understanding of his/her Christian Catholic faith tends to follow it, while a non-Catholic student may know the Christian Catholic faith, yet we don't expect that he/she will follow what the Catholics are practising since he/she has also a set of religious beliefs that he/she follows is a non-Catholic. The recommendation for a curriculum change in religious instruction is hereby proposed.</p> Jay B.
