Title : A discussion about the Mimamsa theory of meaning
Country : India
Authors : Dr. Bhaskar Jha

Abstract: The present paper deals with the theory of meaning as illustrated by the Mimamsakas. Philosophers from ancient times tried to answer the question: How we can achieve knowledge? Mimamsakas said that verbal testimony is an important source by which we can achieve many valid knowledge. But the problems are: What is verbal testimony? How can we understand a certain meaning from a certain word? Whether only Vedic statements can be regarded as sabda pramana, or not? Whether by the sakti of the terms used in a sentence we can understand only separate meanings or also understand the relations among the meanings? Whether Vedas are eternal, or not? Whether the letters or varnas are eternal, or not? In this paper I shall explain all the above problems from the standpoint of Mimamsa philosophy. I shall also explain here whether the opinions of the Mimamsakas in respect of the above problems are acceptable, or not.

Title : Psychosocial Consequences of Parenting
Country : India
Authors : Dr. Shamita Mahapatra || Rabeya Batul

Abstract:Parenting is the process of promoting and supporting the physical, emotional, social, financial and intellectual development of a child from infancy to adulthood. The quality of parenting children receive during the early years affects their cognitive potential, social skill and behavioral functioning that determine their overall success in life. The present paper focuses on four major parenting styles, namely, authoritative, authoritarian, permissive and uninvolved (laissez faire) and their impact on children's development and wellbeing. Research findings suggest that among all the patenting styles, authoritative parenting is the most effective one and thus, is considered to be a case of good parenting. It is associated with increased independence, selfconfidence, self efficacy, competent social skills, critical thinking skills, effective emotion regulation and increased academic competence.

Title : Key Arguments for the Determiner Phrase Hypothesis
Country : Saudi Arabia
Authors : Abdunasir Sideeg

Abstract: This short article aims to explicate some of the key arguments for the determiner phrase hypothesis (DP hypothesis). The goal is to show that within the framework of current formal syntactic analysis, the DP hypothesis is not an alternative but a mandatory hypothesis for a consistent valid syntactic analysis of the English sentence. The article builds on an inclusive notion of the category of determiner based on shared distributional features of its sub-categories. Key arguments for the DP hypothesis build around previous ones such as those made by Abney (1987) but mainly focus on new and fresh insights that take into account holistic and logical arguments and focus on the particular case of expletives as a unique type of determiners.

Abstract: Hearing impairment is one of the most common difficulties among the elderly. Due to its prevalence, the aim of this study was to compare the quality of life among the hearing and hearing impaired elderly.This descriptive-correlational research was conducted on the elderly who spent their time in the parks of Tehran (Iran). One hundred individuals were randomly selected. Data was collected using questionnaires about quality of life (sf-36). The collected data was analyzed with Pearson correlation and T- test analysis. The quality of life among the hearing elderly (mean 97.47) was better than the quality of life among older people with hearing impairment (93.48). Total scores of quality of life among hearing and hearing impaired elderly showed a statically significant difference (p<0.05). Quality of life among older women was significantly better in comparison with the older men (p<0.01).Quality of life among hearing elderly was better than the hearing impaired elderly. The results of this study imply the importance of quality of life in maintaining mental health among the elderly.
