Innovation Labs within companies have the dual objective of accelerating innovation projects and spreading a culture of innovation. The various tools and methods developed by the Labs, such as hackathons, challenges, and workshops, foster collaboration, and creativity among employees (O'Connor, 2018). Implementing participant follow-up systems is key to optimizing the success of the mission of these Labs (Osorio, 2019). This paper evaluates the long-term impact of collaborative workshops organized and facilitated by two Innovation Labs in the luxury sector. This study concerns the analysis of the responses of 172 participants, interviewed between 6 months and 3 years after their participation in a workshop. The analysis of the results allowed us to demonstrate that the collaborative workshops organized have durably modified how employees work. The main transformations are the increase of creativity, collaboration, and motivation. Some actions spontaneously implemented by the participants following the workshops favor these long-term transformations. We have structured these 10 actions in a transformative path composed of 3 chronological groups: peer to peer, learning by doing, and new automatisms. The perspective of this research is to support the innovation Labs to optimize the appropriation of new mindsets and work methods by optimizing learning and transformative experiences.

The Influence of Constitutional Texts on the Conviction of the Criminal Judge

Asst.Prof. Dr. Khaled Kadhem Auda1, Asst. Lec. Mohammed Hasan Kadhim2, 1,2Presidency of University of Thi-Qar -Iraq

Criminal law is based on a number of important principles. These principles together constitute a safety valve for all individuals addressed to the provisions of the rules of this important law. This law is entrusted with the task of ensuring the protection of the rights of individuals. It also provides stability to their legal positions. Legislators gave this law a great deal of interest in the various constitutional systems as constitutions are the center of balance between both power and freedom. Therefore, they include a number of important principles and other rules that together constitute important guarantees for individuals against criminalization and punishment. They represent the aspect of constitutional legitimacy of the rules of criminal law Which, in turn, has the greatest effect on influencing the criminal judge because of the superiority of those rules over other legal rules in the state.

Fourth Industrial Revolution Skills as Influential Factors of Mathematics Performance

Vanda Kay B. Bicar, Western Harnett High School, North Carolina, United States, Email: bicarvandakay@gmail.com

The primary goal was to develop a structural model on emotional intelligence, critical thinking and creativity towards mathematics performance. Emotional intelligence, critical thinking, and creativity are important skills as we gear towards the 4th Industrial Revolution. The pandemic provided an opportunity for new teaching-learning modalities, which paved the way on how these skills predict performance. The study revealed that the level of Mathematics performance did not meet the expectations set by the K-12 curriculum despite displaying a high level of emotional intelligence. Their level of critical thinking was low, and creativity was very low. The study ascertained the existing positive correlations between critical thinking, emotional intelligence, and creativity with mathematics performance using the Pearson Product Moment Correlation. Furthermore, flexibility, analysis, inference, explanation, and self-management were significant predictors of Mathematics performance using multiple regression. Finally, the model was evaluated using fit indices involving Chi-square over degree of freedom, Goodness of Fit Index, Tucker-Lewis Index, Comparative Fit Index, Normed Fit Index, and Root Mean Square Error of Approximation. A positive relationship between critical thinking and emotional intelligence was established. In conclusion, the study theorized that mathematics performance is significantly attributable to their skills in critical thinking and emotional intelligence. Pages 39 to 62

Chuo Adamu Nsangu, Atlantic International University, Honolulu, Hawaii, UD40313 HRE48993

Studies carried out on urban land use changes in Kano had concentrated on the transformation of many of the farm land, wet lands, forest, open spaces and other rural lands into urban land use. The research investigations were how population growth, growth in transportation network and land use zoning had influenced land use changes in Kano metropolis. Detailed studies were made on spatial patterns, rates of change and trends, as well as planning implications with a view of forming sound policies to guide sustainable growth. The study revealed overwhelm land use changes where residential, commercial, industrial, public and semi-public land uses gained more urban space than required space standard in a multifunctional city while parks, playfield and open space as well as agriculture land uses concealed to other land uses. The regression model was used to identify the rate of changes for each land use category and systematic evaluation of relative contributions of each land use category in relation to population growth and growth in road infrastructural development were made.

Legal Basis for Formation of Non-Ministerial Government Institutions in the Indonesian Government System

Sodikin1, Tomi Subiakto2, 1,2Faculty of Law, Universitas Muhammadiyah Jakarta Email: 1sodikin@umj.ac.id, 2tomisubiakto@gmail.com

Article 1 paragraph (3) of the 1945 Constitution stipulates that the Indonesian state is based on law. Consequences as a state based on law, the implementation of the duties and functions of the government must be based on law. In the 1945 Constitution, the President also has authority in administering government, so that in terms of forming non-ministerial government institutions, it is also the authority of the president. The problem is regarding the legal basis for the formation of Non-Ministerial Government Institutions which are regulated in various laws and regulations which lead to ambiguity in the regulations. The research method used is normative juridical (legal research) which is carried out by reviewing various laws and regulations and literature that are theoretical in nature and then connected to the subject matter. The results of the study explain that there is no law that specifically regulates Non-Ministerial Government Institutions, causing the subjectivity of the President in the formation of Non-Ministerial Government Institutions which are still very dominant as holders of government power. There is ambiguity in the law and institutional variations of Non-Ministerial Government Institutions in the Indonesian government system, especially at the leadership level of Non-Ministerial Government Institutions. There has been a transformation of several state institutions with the status of Non-Ministerial Government Institutions into Government Institutions, even though there is no legislation at the level of the law that provides attribution or delegation of authority to the President to establish state institutions with the status of Government Institutions.

The contagious pandemic COVID-19 outbreak has disrupted numerous economic and business activities worldwide. This study focuses on COVID-19's effects on KSE-100 index (Karachi stock exchange), which is a part of a developing country. From 2 March 2020 to 9 November 2021, COVID-19 confirmed, recovered and deaths cases were taken as covariates for the COVID-19. To explore the conditional distributional impact of COVID-19 on KSE-100, we employ robust quantile regression analysis with detailed asymmetric evidence. The results show that the confirmed and recovered cases have a significant positive impact on KSE-100 whereas expired cases having a significant negative influence. These findings contradict previous studies in the world, which claimed that COVID-19 had a negative impact on developed stock markets while aligning with a vast literature of Pakistan stock exchange. It seems that as the result of timely policy implemented by the government of Pakistan. For investors, these findings are robust, which leads to providing practical policy to combat such circumstances in the future. Pages 137 to 149

Musical Alteration on Fazil Say’s Piano Work Summertime Variations Op.20

Siti Nur Hajarul Aswad Shakeeb Arsalaan Bajunid1, Rizal Ezuan Zulkifly Tony2, 1,2Conservatory of Music, College of Creative Arts, Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM), Shah Alam, Selangor, Malaysia. Corresponding author: 1hajarulbajunid@uitm.edu.my

This paper focuses on the embellishment approaches on Fazil Say’s Summertime Variations Op.20 piano solo work. The opportunity of embellishing musical material presented in a recital appears to suggest that alternative approaches are required. Performing music that incorporates "alteration" enhances the opportunity to rethink one's approach to learning and practice; a performer may need to find alternative strategies to perform and interpret Fazil Say's music effectively, particularly in the alteration of the notes and musical phrases. The creative process includes analysis of Fazil Say’s written score and recordings, and documentation of self-interpretation on musical alteration, performed during a recital, as a guideline for performers to integrate and arrange melodic, rhythmic, metric and structure. Epitomising within Fazil Say's selected piano work, this article also attempts to reproduce ideas of a performer's creative process that can contribute to a performance on works based on the philosophies of Julian Hellaby that provides conceptual recommendations that supports a performer to include alternative pianistic possibilities to the limit, if not beyond.

Research and Application of Virtual Digital Technology in Art Creation

Yangxiaoxiao Zhou1, Jan Theo De Vleeschauwer2, 1Ph.D Graduate, Arts and Design, Faculty of Fine Arts, Chiang Mai University, 2Associate Professor, Faculty of Fine Arts, Chiang Mai University, Thailand

This study describes virtual digital art, its origins, technological context, artistic context, ideological context, artists, and works and their meanings. The main aim of this study is to reflect and analyse the description of the interrelationship between virtual digital technology and art through the ontological, typological, aesthetic and cultural characteristics of virtual art. Technology and art are the future trends, and Chinese artists have created works related to virtual digital art, which is new experimentation and exploration by artists. From their artworks, we can see that virtual art focuses on the social winter scape of body and media, space and presence, gender and identity, technology and art, democracy and power, and ethics and religion, and reveals interrelationships and overall connections in people (artists and audiences), objects (artworks), and events (art acts and art events). With the advent of the digital age, virtual art as an essential type of contemporary art form has attracted public attention and is multiplying. This paper attempts to explain and explore the connotation and significance of virtual art by sorting out its production and characteristics and analysing individual cases. Pages 191 to 210

The International Organisation and Diplomatic Efforts of the Muslim Brotherhood

Dr Wisam Fakhry Hazimeh, Faculty of Prince Hussein II bin Abdullah for International Relations, Jordan University, Amman, Jordan

The Muslim Brotherhood’s history dates back to 1928, making it older than most nation states in the Middle East, and the oldest, most significant and influential movement of our time. The discussion of the political survival of the Muslim Brotherhood can be approached from many different angles including its structure, adaptability, and relationship with its respective regimes. However, it is the Brotherhood’s strategy in adapting to Western modernisation and its subsequent balance between modernity and Islam which makes it truly unique. This paper considers the Brotherhood’s maturity over time, its application of structural development to become an international movement, and the various diplomatic strategies it has practised in order to flourish. Using an historical methodology, this paper divides the development of the Brotherhood's structure into three stages in order to analyse how the Brotherhood adapted to current world politics, emerging from the shroud of victimhood within their own nation states as a legitimate tool of diplomacy and mediation. Through its international organisation and mediation efforts, the Brotherhood came to play a role in many political crises that occurred between 1980 and 2001 in the Arab world. This paper analyses the possibility of the Brotherhood’s relevance and need as a diplomatic force in future crises. Pages 211 to 235

Lec. Maitham Mohammad Abd AL Nomani, Al-Furat Al-Awsat Technical University, Babylon Technical Institute, Legal Management Technologies Dept., Iraq, Email: inb.mth@atu.edu.iq

Nowadays, society lives in a machine controlled by advanced technology, which has occupied all aspects of the lives of its members through various social media. Many companies have started working on the design of many applications that allow the user to communicate with others via the Internet through computers or mobile phones to accomplish daily work quite easily. Millions of people use social media applications for chatting and sending pictures and videos, such as Facebook, Facebook messenger, Viber, WhatsApp, Telegram, Instagram, and others. However, some may resort to violating these rights in various ways, such as hacking to see the personal conversations of others or to steal studio files such as photos, videos, audios, etc. without the consent of the owners for various purposes, such as defamation, revenge, or blackmailing girls to pay money in order to avoid the scandal. Therefore, the topic of user privacy in social media is one of the most important topics worth being studied. To protect personal communications, a law criminalizing serious violations should be enacted because of its close connection with the issue of confidentiality of human life and dignity.

Eun Young Jang, Division of Foreign Language Education, Hankuk University of Foreign Studies, Seoul, Republic of Korea, Email address: j9902768@hufs.ac.kr

This study was conducted to examine the characteristics of the 2022 revised curriculum, with a particular focus on the second foreign language curriculum for middle and high schools. Unlike the 2015 revision, a variety of education stakeholders were involved in this revision process. While there were only minor changes to the human ideal and core competencies pursued, the content system underwent a significant restructuring. And the 2022 revised second foreign language curriculum was examined in five parts: characters and goals, content system, achievement standards, instruction and assessment guidelines, and basic vocabularies and communicative expressions, which were compared by language for detailed analysis. The 2022 revised curriculum differs from the existing curriculum revisions in multiple aspects, and it also has some limitations. In this study, two suggestions are made to address these limitations. First, it is important to develop courses that align with the characteristics and circumstances of each foreign language. Second, there is a need to create opportunities for students to access foreign languages from middle school to encourage them to take interest in various foreign languages, it is also important to provide an adequate number of teachers and class hours to promote interschool joint foreign language learning opportunities.

José Chávez Morado’s Plastic Monumentalism: Communitarian Integration in an Urban, Social, and Artistic Environment

Jose Osvaldo Chavez Rodriguez, Professor, Architecture Department, University of Guanajuato

This paper discusses the concept of Monumentalism, proposed by the Mexican artist José Chávez Morado, to expand the limits of Mexican Muralism, which is designated here as Plastic Monumentalism. This architectural-artistic movement involves an artistic dialogue on urban spatial reconfiguration, where all the parts are unified—in their respective social, aesthetic, and natural environments—to ensure the integral performance of the city, as well as creating an identity of its inhabitants. We explore the possibilities of the city's subjective existence as a collective construction made out like a work of art but, as Alfredo Siqueiros said, with a social intention in each of its expressive manifestations.

Dystopia Animation: Created Visualization of Chiang Mai in the Future

Assistant Professor Dr. Korakot Jairak, Faculty of Fine Arts, Chiang Mai University, Thailand, Email: korakottwo@gmail.com

This article concludes the main ideas from the research work entitled ‘The Creation of Animation Presents the Imagery of Chiang Mai in The Future World.’ The outcomes from this project included the discovery of the process of designing animation works to visualize the dystopian future of the city whereby photographs of important places of the current city can be used together with images from imaginations created by the computer with the ‘Collage’ technique that can show the separation, difference, and collapse or fall of a conventional urban. In addition, as for the projection of the animation, a new screen with curves and divided sub-screens was used to project motion pictures in two different styles simultaneously, which could be the creation of aestheticism from the viewing in unique styles. The creativity of the screens created in this project has been successful as a tool to promote the occurrence of an open-ended process for creating and viewing animation works designed with a computer.

This study consists of 6 steps: 1) problem definition, 2) data collection and data cleansing. In this research, the researcher used rainfall data in Thailand from 1901 to 2018, 3) splitting data into two parts, 80% for training and 20% for testing, 4) defining a multiclass neural network model, 5) training the model, and 6) evaluating the performance of the model using cross-validation test. This research demonstrates a development approach of a predictive model for analyzing and flood disaster warning from natural hazards using artificial neural networks, with high accuracy of 95.833%. It can be further developed to create a platform for connecting and using in disaster warning systems in the future. Pages 458 to 479
