Paper Title :: The 2016 shift from normal liberal democracy to extreme liberal democracy in the USA: Pointing out the structure of Trumpconomics, its meaning, and its expected local and global implications, both analytically and graphically
Author Name :: Lucio Muñoz
Country :: Canada
Page Number :: 01-11
The world of extreme democratic outcomes came in 2016 first in the UK with the unexpected win of the “yes” vote; and months later in the USA with the unexpected win of Donald Trump. This is a shift in the working of democracy from normal to extreme structure as in extreme liberal democracies pushing the best interest of the minority view that surprisingly wins a majority rule based democratic outcome is the core goal. In other words, extreme democratic outcomes exist to push the best interest of the minority view, not the best interest of the majority as normal democratic outcomes are expected to do.

Paper Title :: Interest in Juridical-Contracting Relations
Author Name :: Msc. Albatrit Bytyçi
Country :: Republic of Kosovo
Page Number :: 12-17
Interest takes an important place in (non) contractual relations between the parties, as it creates rights and obligations on the basis of the principal liabilities (claims) from which it derives.Thus, taking into account these circumstances and the reason that interest as an institute of law is often present in the law practising, but which has not been dealt with in this respect and that of the law of obligations, then I intended to present through paper a brief study of interest and its types, as well as the legal effects that they produce in practice in relation to the determination - creation, or more specifically the commencement of flow by degree (level) of the subjects of law, where in their contractual legal relations are presented as fulfilling the accessory obligation alongside the principal.

Paper Title :: Textual Scholarship Researches of Grigol Orbeliani’s Epistolary Heritage
Author Name :: Tea Tvalavadze
Country :: Georgoa
Page Number :: 18-24
One of the main principles of scholarly edition is a chronological order that provides us with an opportunity to imagine the author‟s creative growth. Therefore, it is obvious that the dating of each text is of utmost importance in terms of historical-philological and literary studies. In the first and second volumes published in 1936-1937, up to sixty letters of the famous Georgian writer and public figure of the 19th century Grigol Orbeliani (1804-1883) were omitted because the time of their writing could not be determined. However, by means of digital technologies, corpus study and various contemporary methods, the dating of the aforementioned letters became possible in the new edition. The information obtained from the documentary writings of the author cannot be complete without identifying the persons mentioned therein. Therefore, it is important to find out who is implied by means of a name, surname, nickname, public name or pronoun mentioned in this or that letter. By means of various methods and technologies we were able to summarize the information scattered in different narratives and identify most of them. Identification of these individuals helps us to understand the content better. Information obtained as a result of our investigations enabled us to make some corrections in the biographies of the individuals. Dating the text and identifying the persons mentioned therein are the major tasks for textual scholars. The significance of the letters increases drastically when their texts are scientifically verified and dated, as well as the people mentioned there identified and all complicated passages of the text are commented. Such researches are fundamental and, in addition to their inherent value, represent the basis for further historical and cultural studies.

Paper Title :: Valoración de los referentes culturales de los estudiantes indígenas en la enseñanza del Derecho
Author Name :: Olia Acuña Maldonado, Francisco Ricardo Ramírez Lugo
Country :: México
Page Number :: 27-34
El sistema educativo mexicano plantea en todas sus etapas la pedagogía y la didáctica como base del aprendizaje que se brinda en las escuelas, pero en los últimos cien años han surgido críticas hacia los métodos de enseñanza y a la escuela, estas vienen acompañadas de ideas que le dan papeles diferentes a los maestros y alumnos y a la misma escuela; una de las críticas señala que el sistema no contempla teorías, métodos, estrategias y técnicas para los estudiantes indígenas que cursan una Licenciatura.
Por el problema planteado, nos propusimos como objetivo general de esta investigación, el analizar las diferentes técnicas utilizadas en la enseñanza del Derecho, para conocer con cuál de ellas es posible elevar los niveles de aprovechamiento académicos de los jóvenes indígenas que cursan una Licenciatura.
Se planteó a nivel hipotético que el utilizar los referentes culturales de los estudiantes indígenas para la enseñanza del Derecho, esto aumenta de manera positiva sus resultados académicos.
La investigación se inició en el ciclo escolar del año 2000 y a partir de ese ciclo escolar se documentó al avance académico de los jóvenes indígenas que cursan la Licenciatura en Derecho en la Universidad Autónoma Indígena de México, esto se hizo a través de la recopilación de diversas herramientas de medición del aprovechamiento académico como exámenes escritos, debates, resúmenes, ensayos que permitieron evaluar el avance académico de los jóvenes con cada técnica utilizada, esta recopilación documental y análisis termino con la generación del año 2018.
Nuestra perspectiva para realizar esta investigación cualitativa, nace desde el Derecho Constitucional y los Derechos Humanos, que plantean el derecho a la educación en México, utilizándose los métodos histórico, descriptivo, reflexivo y analítico. Revisamos y contrastamos las diversas teorías sobre el Derecho Constitucional y los Derechos Humanos, revisamos los artículos 2° y 3° de la Constitución Política de los Estados Unidos Mexicanos que plasman el derecho humano a la educación que tienen los pueblos indígenas en México, y, las teorías y el marco normativo, lo contrastamos con la realidad que enfrentan los estudiantes al cursar una Licenciatura, para lo cual, revisamos y analizamos los documentos fundacionales de la Universidad, la normativa, el modelo académico aplicado y los documentos de medición de avance académico, observamos y aplicamos la deducción y la inducción para inferir las conclusiones y propuestas que se hacen. Se propone, la utilización de los referentes culturales de los pueblos indígenas para la enseñanza del Derecho ya que se demostró que con esta técnica los estudiantes indígenas tienen un mejor aprovechamiento académico.
Keywords: Valorarlos referentes culturales de los estudiantes indígenas que cursan su Licenciatura en la Universidad Autónoma Intercultural de Sinaloa y utilizarlos para la enseñanza del Derecho.

Paper Title :: The concept of publishing different types of notes and fragmentary oral speeches
Author Name :: Esma Mania
Country :: Georgia
Page Number :: 35-39
In complete scholarly editions of works by classic authors not only their artistic texts are published, but also documentaries: complete and incomplete, redactions and alternative versions, plans and drafts. According to the author's significance and specifics of the written heritage in such editions many other types of material may appear. That is why developing the concept for publishing Ilia Chavchavadze’s notepads, various types of statements, individual notes, and fragmentary oral speeches is on the agenda. The manuscripts are kept in the funds of The National Archives of Georgia, The Georgian National Centre of Manuscripts and Giorgi Leonidze State Museum of Literature. While publishing world literature classics, such types of texts are placed in a section "miscellaneous". When it comes to Ilia Chavchavadze this material can be found in such large amounts that it is given not just one section but the whole volume in scholarly edition of his works. In multi-volume scholarly editions, common principles are mostly held, but sometimes the volume specificity requires derogation from the general rule. As far as the contextual classification of the notepad due to the diversity of its constituent texts was impossible, we decided to simply number them in the publication taking into account dates of the notes contained therein. Concerning the organizing issues of notepad's text the publishing team decided to call it a "note" for a more or less completed unit separated by themes, chronology, location, the writing means, or any other data and to number the notes represented in each notepad by the original sequence. The scientific apparatus will contain all the features - sources, notes, comments and indexes - that are necessary for scholarly editions.

Now the rigidity of caste move from governing principle to functional unit to maintain the social order and challenging the caste and ideological hegemony. In this juncture there is the need to explore and build our knowledge about Indian society based on rationality and scientific method where cause and effect could be appropriately linked and truth can be established.

MalayKupang Language (MKL) is spoken by around 500,000 people who inhabit in Kupang city and several districts on Timor Island, East Nusa Tenggara (ENT) Province, Indonesia.MKL is actually a part of Malay-creole language. In general, MKL shows a special similarity in terms of grammar that leads to the theory of universal grammar. Even MKL is one of the local language in Indonesia, but MKL is also difference with Indonesian in the syntactic level, especially in valency changing strategy.Valency itself means the ability of one verb to bind the core argument to the verb itself.In other word, the valency is the verb ability to require a particular argument, which approves certain semantic functions in a sentence. In MKL the valency changing strategy can be proccedthrough the composition of some verbs. In MKL the verbs formation composition is applied by combining three static verbs. Those verbs are the verbsame“take”,buang“throw”, and kasi “give”. In MKL some verbs will change the valency of that verbs by combining them with those three verbs. Those verbs are both the intransitive and transitive verbs.

Paper Title :: Impact of Outcome Based Education on teaching performance at higher education level in Pakistan
Author Name :: Gouhar Pirzada, Dr. Fariha Gull
Country :: Pakistan
Page Number :: 95-110
Outcome Based Education (OBE) is an educational theory that bases each part of an educational system around goals (outcomes). By the end of the educational experience, teachers enable each student to achieve the predefined goal. There is no single specified style of teaching or assessment in OBE, instead lectures, learning opportunities, and assessment methods are designed and implementedto help students achieve the specified outcomes. Outcome based assessments enable teachers to practically demonstrate the prospective learning for students. This is considered highly beneficial and supportive for students at higher education in developing their portfolios, which serve as evidences of gained learning to further enhance academic as well as professional pursuits. Enhancing teaching standards and academic performances are important strategic goals for any university or institute that offers higher education, specifically in context of Pakistan with presence of relatively fewer universities and higher population growth. It is important to analyze if outcome based education and outcome based assessment support Pakistani university or higher education teachers in enhancing their performance and academic standards.

Paper Title :: A Contemporary Reinterpretation of Plato’s Notion of Reality
Author Name :: Felix Ayemere Airoboman
Country :: Nigeria
Page Number :: 111-119
This essay is a contemporary rethinking and analysis of Plato‘s notion of reality and its implications for contemporary world. It traces the route to Plato‘s notion of reality to Heraclitus, Parmenides and Pythagoras, and then makes a briefsurvey of Plato‘s theories of Forms, the divided line, the allegory of the cave and reminiscence and draws the connections between them. The study locates the points of intersection betweenPlato‘s cave and the real world, and between Plato‘s time and contemporary time. It inquires into why people are attracted or dragged to unreality and why they often pitch tent with unreality and find it easier to adapt to it rather than to reality. It argues further that despite the problems associated with unreality, it has some relevance to those who are accustomed to it. It then inquires into possible difficulty which will characterize the lives of those who are already adapted to unreality when detached fromit -the bliss of falsehood - and exposed to the pain of truth.It contends that in concrete term appearance or unreality has some roles to play in the understanding of reality. It then explicates some of these roles. Conclusively, it cautions against being trapped in unreality because of the difficulties involved in detaching from it and in knowing that one is actually entrapped in it.
