The cities of the Democratic Republic of Congo have been experiencing a housing crisis since 1960. Our study aimed to analyze the urban aspects of the habitat within which social groups shelter and the functions they give to this type of housing. in the Ngulu-Nzamba district of Lukemi commune in the city of Kikwit in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The dwellings of the households surveyed at the study site constitute our study material. We conducted a cross-sectional study from March 2018 to June 2020 using the method of direct observation in the field and instrumental supported by survey techniques, document review, interview, sampling. It emerges from this analysis that most of the subjects surveyed have as their main activity traditional agriculture with a very low income value, i.e. less than 50 us per month, and have acquired their plot from Heads of Land and almost all did not obtain any building permission before building. This situation means that the majority of dwellings have clay soil as their quality of wall and pavement. So the dwellings in the study setting are rudimentary and uncomfortable and expose their occupants to environmental vulnerabilities.

Paper Title :: Marxian Dialectics, Social Challenges of the C21st and Revival of Natural Law Philosophy: Nigeria in the Spotlight
Author Name :: Joshua Igonoh
Country :: Nigeria
Page Number :: 28-40
The divisive outlook of Marxist Philosophy amongst jurists and scholars is not influenced by different perception of the capitalist West and Communist East blocks alone but by dispensational interpretation of Marx thoughts on Historical Materialism, Economic Determinism and eventual abolition of State and the law. Although political reality of contemporary times seem to contradict these thesis of Marx but this paper, by doctrinal approach has shown that a more passionate view of Marx thoughts present him as a scholar disillusioned by the failures of positivist philosophy in all ramifications. Looking at corruption as one phenomenal threat to continued existence of the State and positivist laws in Nigeria, the paper recommended a resort to the values of Natural Law as catalyst for solving the riddles of the 21st century.

Paper Title :: A Studio Exploration of Wood off-cuts as a Creative Resource for the Production of “The Ruler and the Ruled Sculpture Project”
Author Name :: Chikelue Chris Akabuike
Country :: Nigeria
Page Number :: 41-51
Background:“The Ruler and the Ruled” project is a process-oriented studio exploration that attempts to join other African artists such as Sumegne, Dilomprizulike, Hazoume, Titos and Mabunda, who employ recycled materials and joining techniques to address socio-political issues in Africa. The distinctiveness of their creative exploits‟ tilts largely on their creativeness in working with their individual processes of joining, tying, welding, and assembling upcycled materials. However, none has consciously utilized the joinery process as a focal of production.
Objectives: This study,therefore, focused on joinery and the aesthetic effects joinery brings to form, as it uses these forms to address the plights of the downtrodden.
Methodology: the exploration process engages the use of joinery techniques, like dovetail, flatlock, and dado joints as a method in upcycling wood off-cuts and tree-logs to create a body of work, while the exploration results analyses three factors: the materials, process and formal features using formalistic, stylistic, descriptive and iconology approaches.
Results: the resultsmetaphoricallyshowed how the ruling elites manipulate the rustics and subject them to both physical and emotional poverty.
Unique contribution: An in-depth understanding of the routine craftsmanship the artist put in at different stages of production is highlighted, togive insight on how upcoming artists can maintain the level of creative dexterity required by joinery techniques and processes.
Definite conclusion: Theconceptual imageries make connections with material and process to provide junctures where meanings are elicited especially as they relate to the downtrodden,to join the ongoing dialog in the African socio-political scene.
Key recommendation. further explorations from the present project can still be initiated in different directions to extend what has been done so far.

Page Number :: 60-65
The aim of this research was to evaluate the effect of an intervention program of Greek traditional dance teaching through the instruction of different dances in primary school students, initially indifferent towards Greek dance. The sample has been constituted of 300 students in total, 129 males and 171 females. Students were attending the 4th, 5th, or 6th grade of primary school. Participants have been split up into two groups upon a lottery procedure. The experimental group attended a traditional Greek dances intervention program for two months (16 sessions, 45 minutes long), aiming to teach three different types of dances through the group-collaborative method. The control group was taught the same dances using the method of command. The Student-Interest-in-the-Dance Questionnaire (Koupani, Rokka, & Bebetsos, 2017) has been used for data collection. Data statistical analysis included descriptive statistics, reliability analysis (Cronbach’s alpha), t-test for Independent Samples, and Repeated Measures ANOVA. Upon data analysis, the following conclusions have been reached: a) the intervention program of Greek traditional dances teaching through the instruction of three different types of dances had a positive effect causing students interest, b) the occurred changes in the experimental group were observed in both males and females, c) students’ class constituted a differentiation factor, having students of the 6th grade show significant changes. The research results enable the authors to claim that their Greek dance teaching programs, using innovative teaching approaches that promote self-reaction and collaboration, have the potential to provoke and attract the interest of indifferent primary school students.

Several studies point to different methodologies of teaching, but learning is an arduous, individual and unique mental process, everyone acquire, during school life, a more appropriate way of accessing the socially generated knowledge, be them through books, newspapers, magazines or research on the Internet. Since it is an individual process, nothing better than asking the student how they learn, that is, through a difficulty which they resort to? When they have a question, ask whom? When conducting activities proposed by the teacher, how they prefer to do it, in group or alone? In research activities, how they prefer to do it alone or in a group? Anyway, in what circumstances do they learn? This work has the pretension of based on a vast literature review and information collected in a state public school in the municipality of Palmas / Tocantins, where 42 (forty two) students of the second grade of High School were interviewed about collaborative learning, analyze and present data that suggests how the student's learning process happens in a interaction between the subject and the environment in a relational perspective. The students answered the questionnaire about the process of interaction in the classroom, in moments of teaching and learning activities. The questionnaire was tabulated and the results were analyzed with the objective of contributing to good practices in the classroom.

Paper Title :: Role conflict and role ambiguity concerning Physical Education teachers in private health centers
Author Name :: Genti, M. || Rokka, S. || Laios, A. || Kosta, G.
Country :: Greece
Page Number :: 83-88
In the last decade, there has been a development in the field of exercise and health. These health centers, which offer a variety of dance aerobic programs, need professional trainers whose engagement in these programs has become their main source of income. Role conflict is a situation in which a person experiences an inconsistency of the directions or demands that correspond in a role. Role ambiguity refers to the uncertainty of an employee in relation to his/her job responsibilities and the way he/she has to carry them out and it occurs when he/she does not have a clear picture concerning goals, responsibilities and ways of achievement, while at the same time he/she is aware of this uncertainty. The aim of this research was to examine the levels of role ambiguity and role conflict concerning P.E. teachers/trainers of group aerobics programs in private gyms and investigate whether there are any differences after the application of an intervention program on the clarification of certain terms. The sample of the research included 198 P.E. teachers (76 men & 122 women) with an average age 38, 76 ± 6.54 years and experience on guiding aerobic programs in a gym 6, 5 ± 2.31 years. The instruments used for the measurement of role conflict and role ambiguity were the role conflict and role ambiguity scales (Rizzo, House, & Lirtzman, 1970), were adapted and calibrated for the Greek population by Koustelios and Kousteliou (1998). The intervention program concerning P.E. teachers/trainers of group aerobics programs lasted 12 consecutive weeks with 60 minute sessions, twice a week. For the statistical analysis of the data, the method used was the Reliability analysis, Correlation and Repeated Measures Anova analysis, to investigate any differences in relation to the role ambiguity and role conflict before and after the end of the intervention program. The results of the research showed the intervention program had a statistically significant influence in the two factors that were examined –“role ambiguity” and “role conflict”- as concerns the P.E. teachers/trainers of group aerobics programs on whom it was applied.
