Fill out this form for us to research the effect of HRM policies on Work-Family conflict and further find out ways to reduce this conflict through solutions based on empirical evidence
Galileo, Newton, Einstein vs (dialectically corresponding) Kepler, Leibniz, Hegel: Which group was on the right side of science, but got the wrong side of history?
After Copernicus abolished medieval Geocentric cosmology; is modern cosmology of Newton and Einstein anything other than a Geocentric one?
What is at the root of the crisis in modern theoretical physics and cosmology?
Was Hegel justified when he said, “Newton gave physics an express warning to beware of metaphysics, it is true; but to his own honour, be it said, he did not obey his own warning”.
[As would be shown below, Newtonian metaphysics, assuming the same perfect circular orbits of planets like Galileo and Ptolemy; in essence brought back Geocentric cosmology with his law of universal gravitational attraction and Einstein just perfected this wrong notion with his general relativity (GR) - the epitome of all metaphysics!]
Galileo vs, Kepler:
After the Copernican revolution that overthrew the medieval cosmology of Ptolemaic Epicycles; Kepler’s laws of the planetary system involving elliptical orbits and based on the tedious empirical observation of Tycho Brahe; could be the only scientific basis for any cosmology. But it was not to be!
Galileo, is recognized as the father of modern cosmology and his inverse square law of “Free Fall” is universally valid on or near the surface of a cosmic body like earth. Galileo was persecuted by the Inquisition for his stance against Geocentric cosmology under feudal rule in Europe. But even Galileo rejected Kepler’s elliptical orbits in favour of ideal circular orbits of the planets; because there could be no imperfection in God creation. Please see the following references and the criticism of Galileo’s stance of perfect circular orbits, even by some modern-day clerics! Contrary to popular belief, the wrong turn in cosmology ironically originated with our hero, Galileo!“

“Galileo and Kepler”
Newton vs, Leibniz:
The long dispute of Newton’s law of “universal gravitational attraction” (Free Fall of Galileo), circular orbits of the planetary system as opposed to Leibniz’s ‘vis viva’, centrifugal force and the support of Kepler’s elliptical orbits; as well as the dispute over the authorship of infinitesimal calculus is well known. The following publication (refused to be recognized by official physics), shows what a profound implication ensued after the rejection of Kepler’s elliptical orbits by Galileo and Newton. Newton extended Galileo’s inverse square law of “Free Fall” valid only on or near the surface of earth; totally disregarded Kepler’s first and second law, assumed a perfect circle like Ptolemy and Galileo as the orbit of the planets and used his theory of unidirectional universal gravitational attraction observed on earth, using a perfectly fitting centrifugal force, perfectly balancing the gravitational pull inwards such that there is zero outward force producing a perfect equilibrium. Newton simply put the proportionality constant (4 pi^2/GM) in Kepler’s third law to get his formula P^2 = (4 pi^2/GM) a^3, where G is the gravitational constant and M is the mass of the sun. Newton imposed his wrong and one-sided formulation of plenary gravitation with the help of the British imperial power, Royal Society and the Church and against the vehement opposition from Leibniz. The rest is history, leading up to the present time! All the Fairy Tales and the Cosmic Monsters arise from Newton’s unidirectional and universal gravitational attraction” without any countering force! If Leibniz’s vis viva equation (7) and specially the potential PE as shown in equation (10) in the following publication, prevailed; cosmology could have avoided the Fairy Tales of the Big/Dark/Black Cosmic Monsters and the crises and bankruptcy it now faces!
"KEPLER -NEWTON -LEIBNIZ -HEGEL Portentous and Conflicting Legacies in Theoretical Physics, Cosmology and in Ruling Ideas" :
Einstein vs. Hegel:
Recognition of the quantum phenomena and the break down of causality (the backbone of theology and class rule) at the turn of the 20th century brought a crisis in Newtonian theoretical physics and cosmology that ruled for few centuries. In efforts to deny the “spooky quanta”, Einstein made a radical change of the Newtonian concept of space and time, with his theories of relativity. Space and time for Einstein became a unified single entity of four dimensional “spacetime” – an abstract geometrical construct, purportedly with tangible and sensuous mechanical, material and metrical attributes. But long before the recognition of the quantum phenomena, Hegel in his philosophy of space and time; already anticipated the quantum phenomena and antimatter (a revolutionary new form of matter) that could not even be dreamt of, before its discovery!

Hello. As part of my PhD I am doing a systematic literature review on goal conflict, within the systematic review I am including grey literature including unpublished papers, conference proceedings and any other items that contribute to the conceptualisation of goal conflict.
My focus is current intra-individual goal conflict, however would also be interested to receive any unpublished literature on inter-person and organisation goal conflict should the scope of my PhD change. Is there any unpublished goal conflict literature that anyone could please send? Many thanks, Ellie Lucas
Quoting CNN report: https://www.cnn.com/2022/12/12/politics/nuclear-fusion-energy-us-scientists-climate/index.html
"For the first time ever, US scientists at the National Ignition Facility at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in California successfully produced a nuclear fusion reaction resulting in a net energy gain, a source familiar with the project confirmed to CNN.
The US Department of Energy is expected to officially announce the breakthrough Tuesday."
We all know what All Mankind have been through for the last decades, of which the climate change, energy crisis, etc. have always been pains in the neck. They directly or indirectly caused the shortage, inflation, supply-chain disruptions, regional/global economic crisis, or even escalated conflicts. Now, here comes a promising solution! (I personally suppose such an incredible scientific breakthrough deserves multiple Nobel Prizes!)
Assuming this major scientific breakthrough is solid and safe. Here come more interesting questions that are perhaps worth our attention and discussion:
1. How long would it take for this scientific breakthrough to be transferred to engineering deployment and energy usage in our daily life? < 10 years, 10-30 years, 30 - 50 years, or > 50 years?
2. What could you think of the pros/cons of this breakthrough (e.g., would it help mitigate the climate change, poverty issues, and regional/global conflicts over energy and resources? ), and what should be first done before the deployment? Legislation, international treaties, environmental protection, and/or etc.?
3. How do you think this breakthrough will accelerate all mankind to the Type-I Civilization (according to Kardashev Scale) and become a Spaceborne Civilization/Species?
4. What would be your thoughts/ideas/advice/suggestions/opinions on this breakthrough and how it can better serve all mankind?
I would like to know what are the differences between phylogenetic conflicts in the trees and also the meaning of lack of resolution (solved and unsolved trees) and the presence of conflicts. Can you tell me how we can evaluate the resolution and conflict of a phylogenetic analysis?
Thank you for your responses.
This question came back to us at each stage of the data collection in the field, within the framework of the SecTenSusPeace project: SECURING TENURE, SUSTAINABLE PEACE? The challenges of localizing land-registration in conflict-affected Burundi and eastern DR Congo. SecTenSusPeace is one of twelve transnational research projects that tackle a wide range of complex challenges on transformations to sustainability and that integrate knowledge and capabilities from around the world, funded by the Transformations to Sustainability (T2S) research programme.
Indeed, in conflict-affected settings, land tenure security of smallholders is seen as essential to prevent local land disputes and sustain peace, enable recovery of rural livelihoods, and advance ecologically and socially sustainable agricultural production. To enhance tenure security –which is often severely compromised during conflict– interveners tend to turn to land registration and other forms of formally acknowledging claims to land. However, conventional state-led approaches relying on centrally-organised, individual titling often fail to deal with very complex local land struggles. Yet, the alternative of recognizing customary land governance is also problematic. Contrary to expectations, customary arrangements may also fail to find locally embedded, acceptable solutions.
Hello. I'm currently in the process of conducting a systematic literature review of 'goal conflict'. Obviously, I'm looking at goal conflict research and known relations e.g., paradox, multiple goals, dual identities etc.
However, I need to uncover papers that may be relevant for goal conflict but may not necessarily be called or reference 'goal conflict' (e.g., paradox, dual identities). Does anyone have any suggested direction? I'm interested in org psych, management, marketing, social psych, sociology and any other fields where I may be able to further develop the conceptualisation of goal conflict.
The politics, at the 22C, in developing countries mainly in Africa suffering from inflicted wounds arising from Ethnic’s and religious conflicts? Why leaders have never understand and attempt improve the situation? Do you think the direct and indirect interventions of of the developing countries will be responsible while abscence of good governance is lackin on the ground? What is the roles of so called aid organizations and NGOs?
I have 12 variables (9 categorical and 3 continuous) entered into a multinomial logistic regression with a backwards stepwise deletion approach. 3 variables excluded from the model as indicated in my step summary for non-significance. The final multinomial logistic regression model fitness was significant, X2(20) = 210.541, p < .001, which suggests the independent variables included significantly predict my outcome. However, my output shows conflicting information after that and I am finding the interpretation challenging.
1. Goodness of fit shows significant Pearson (p = .002) and deviance = 1.000.
2. Remaining 8 variables all significant at p < .05 in the likelihood ratio test BUT in the parameter estimates some of the independent variables are not showing up as significant in either model.
What does this conflicting output indicate?
In a research team comprising a mix of senior experts and young enthusiasts(members) if it is about creativity, who will contribute more as far as creativity is concerned. and Why ?
Runco in his research paper titled "Conflict and creativity" said that experienced and expert seniors may be more defensive to their own work and may not contribute new solutions ,.
(19) Conflict and Creativity | Request PDF (researchgate.net)
what are your views? please do contribute.
senior researchers naturally gravitate to what has worked in the past, using tried and true methods. However, whenever a group is working together on any project they will go through the steps of team formation: forming, storming, norming, performing and adjourning. It is of critical importance that ground rules are agreed upon and used through the process to allow younger and/or researchers with a more creative approach to have their ideas also validated. This suggests diversity of thought. It has been proven time and time again, that the more diversity among a team, the better the results. This can also contribute to the building of long term successful relationships that again, will continue to encourage creativity and unique solutions.
Hello everyone I'm new in this plateform I'm looking to do my master thesis about impact of the war on economic growth ( impact in short and long term ). My time serie data will be 1960-2020 and population will be most countries of the world.
I chose as independent variable real gdp per capita and dependant variable inflation, trade and military expenditure (I'm searching other dependant variables).
and for conflicts I will divide my data by high intensity and low intensidty of the war. And also by geography to catch spillover of neighbors because impact of the conflicts in few regions can be different than impact of the conflict in all country. ( I found some problems to divide my data geographically )
I choose this subject because of last conflict of ukraine and russia and it's impact on the world by high inflation and high prices and this may harm gdp growth.
If some one can help me to improve my model I will be so grathful and thankful.
Thank you for reading :)
I am trying to compare the mean scores ( number of questions right/out of a 6 question test ) between two groups in my data, those with training versus those without training. I am conflicted if this is the most appropriate study, or if the scores are actually an ordinal variable that needs a different test to make a comparison? Thank you
Usually, in scientific publication cycle, Authors are required to declare any potential conflict of interests as part of the paper submission guidelines. For some Journals, Authors are required to sign a consent form under data protection. However, Reviewers/Editors do not declare conflict of interests to the Authors during the review process. It is important to note that some Revievers are also Researchers cum Experts in the field and could have interest in the manuscript under review. For instance, if Reviewers have any intentions to publish papers on topics similar to those addressed in the manuscripts before them then a potential conflict of interest situation arises which could influence their final decisions on the manuscript.
In the spirit of fairness and transparency,
Should Reviewers/Editors declare any potential conflict of interests?
I am invited to review a scientific paper. In the manuscript one of the reference cites my own published research. Is this a conflict of interest?
A common axiom says everything has both advantages and disadvantages. This question seeks to x-ray the disadvantages of conflict on the quality of scientific researches both in areas mostly and remotely affected
In observing the consequences of work from anywhere/telework and its consequences on life (burnout, personal relationships, life-work conflict) and work (productivity, job stress, job satisfaction), I came across different theoretical frameworks. Some of them are person-environment fit, conflict theories (work-life conflict), spill-over theories, etc. If you do similar research, which theoretical framework do you start with?
Hello friends I hope you all are doing well,
Dear Seniors, I am a PhD aspirant in Civil Wars Studies and new to this area.
I request experienced scholars in the field to please suggest me some good books/articles readings for understanding the basics in the area.
Any suggestion about good articles/books on the Research Methods in Civil Wars studies would also be welcomed.
Hi all, I'm looking for a validated scale that I could use to measure an individual's endorsement of revolutionary change, i.e. dismantling institutions and/or society via activism or conflict, to then rebuild. Preferably politically neutral.
Coping strategy index was developed by East and central Africa regional unit of the world food programme as an indicator of household food security.
I know it looks difficult but I'll explain the best I can.
I have a dataset in SPSS in which each row corresponds a conflict.
There are 2.506 conflicts in the 5 regions explored. This regions are in one numeric variable.
Middle east: 357
However there are regions that have more and less countries...
I want to know if there is a correlation between the number of conflicts and a region's size.
I also know how many countries there are in each.
I'd prefer to have scatter/dot graph as an output.
Do I add variables, insert new data...? Can someone give me a hand on this?
I am running several bivariate linear regressions to measure the impact of biases on controlling processes. These are all significant. I would like to measure which cognitive bias has the greatest impact on controlling processes. Can I compare the beta weights of different bivariate regression models to find the bias with the biggest impact? My dependent variable always remains the same.
I have searched for hours for information but unfortunately found conflicting information.
Thanks in advance!
Hello, I am looking for data sources related to Armenia-Azerbaijan conflict. Does anyone know some source of evolution of military expenditures (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Turkey, and Russia)?
How many studies funded by private companies sponsoring some equipment or technology show negative results. Is there an hidden bias or conflict of interest present?
As we know that mental health remains undebated and unattended due to social stigma associated. The pattern of trauma in conflict zones is worrying due to rise in anxiety, PTSD, and suicides from past few years. Understanding and adapting mental Machine learning can open new ways for early diagnosis of mental health.
What are your views regarding the same. Can ML BE beneficial in psychiatry?
Does anyone know how to use the Conflict Tactics Scale short form (CTS2S; Straus & Douglas, 2004)? I am working on my master thesis and I am looking at Gender Role Ideologies as a significant predictor for Domestic Violence. Unfortunately, I am having troubles understanding how to use the CTS2S. I don’t know how to classify my participants from perpetrators or victims of domestic abuse. I have red several articles and these suggest to use the “prevalence” method of scoring, however, I don’t understand how to group these variables and get a final score on them.
I will greatly appreciate your help!
Thank you in advance for your time!

For a while, I have been conflicted on what could be the 'right' way to analyse my data. I am doing calcium imaging in individual cells using fluorescence microscopy. A stimulus is added, after which the fluorescence signal gets brighter. Ultimately, I quantify the area under the curve (AUC) of this response.
-I want to compare the AUC of two genotype: WT vs. KO.
-Cells are seeded in a container (well). In one such a well, I measure 120 cells simultaneously.
-I have measured 6 wells for each genotype.
To test whether the mean AUC between genotypes differs, I have considered pooling the AUC's of all 120 cells within a well as one mean, since one could argue one well is one biological replicate, and the individual cells are merely technical replicates. Subsequently I could do a T-test with only n=6.
However, I cannot shake this gut feeling that this is wrong, since we lose a tremendous amount of information this way. The whole single-cell aspect is lost. To retain the single-cell aspect of these measurements, I have considered fitting a mixed model "AUC ~ Genotype + (1|well)" with well measured as a random factor and perform an Anova using this model.
Is one of these two ways the "correct" way to go about this. Or am I missing a whole different aspect?
The Smart-Grid Revolution Starts in Boulder, Colorado, who were the stakeholders of this project and what conflict could arise with the stakeholders?
It is reported that the world population will be exceeding 9 billion by 2050 and the food supply need to double (https://www.nationalgeographic.com/foodfeatures/feeding-9-billion/) by then to be able to continue feeding humanity. It seems that countries, world leaders and scientists are no more talking about population control to partly reduce the pressure and balance the demand and supply gaps. Why is this the case? Shouldn't we keep the population control agendum on the Table of global development endeavor to even contribute to climate change and ecological sustainability? Is population pressure not contributing to the global stresses and conflicts here and there?
Working on quantitative dissertation study that involves individual creativity in the workplace, but finding conflicting validity regarding creative workplace scales. Is there an instrument that measures individual creativity in the workplace with proven validity and reliability? I was working off of Amabile's componential model of creativity. Any help appreciated!
I plan to do research on customary land conflicts among several tribes in coastal area. Some of my colleagues suggest Etnographic research as it relates to history, symbols and cultural life. However, I have more experience in doing grounded theory research, and the etnographic thing is something new for me. I would like to know if anyone ever try to use grounded method to study such customary land conflicts
After African states obtained their independence, the artificial and poorly demarcated borders of many countries were considered the most potent source of conflict and political instability. This resulted in heated debates on whether to revise or maintain the colonial borders, hence the research question seeks to explore the effectiveness of the African Union in resolving ethnic border conflicts and how it can be an effective tool towards resolving the aforementioned conflicts. Furthermore, what can be improved as well as new measures which can be implemented to curb these conflicts?
I am interested in the Southern Gas Corridor project and would highly appreciate any new researches, especially those mentioning the possible influence of the recent Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.
Thank you in advance!
Are there any examples of positive mutual relationships between religion and technology? That is a relationship that shows a type of compatibility in them? Or maybe we need to go insofar as saying that technology and religion conflict? Or at least there is a point where they might become incompatible one with the other?
I'm working in the broad field of political ecology and I'm currently co-authoring an article about the social-ecological consequences of the digital economy (material anchor, territorialities, conflicts). I'm therefore looking for literature about the digital economy I might have missed so far. I'm pleased about all suggestions. Many thanks in advance!
Iwonder if you faced to conflict during your work-time, take into account the specific covid-conditions, in which people should communicate now
What should one do if he obtains conflicting results between Content Validity Index (CVI) and CVR for items in a quetionnare. For example based on the CVI obtained the items are acceptable but the CVR obtained are low meaning one may have to reject the items going by the CVR?
Would you mind giving me some conflict situations at work? And ways of solving them (or no-solving)
In which stage the conflict nowadays?
grateful for your praticipating in this item.
I have come across a submission changing from "under review" to "reviewer invited", which sometimes implies that a reviewer objected to further reviewing a manuscript or one of the reviewers' reports is conflicting and therefore the editor needs a tiebreaker. However, I just came across a submission with "editor assigned" now changed to "new submission" more than three months in the editorial process. What does this imply?
The Tigris - Euphrates water conflict is frozen conflict between three riparians (Iraq, Syria and Turkey). The conflict came up because of upstream water projects by Turkey and therefore the restriction of water access to individuals of downstream failed states (Iraq and Syria). There are two principles are conflicting: Territorial sovereignty of Turkey and human right to water of individuals (This is issue of global justice and not international justice due to failed states). My question is: whom belongs water and how property (connected with territory) theory of Locke can be connected to the sovereignty principle of Turkey?
Thank you beforehand
Conflict resolution at socio-economic disparities?
Two-way honest approach driving through varying characterized bi-parental upbringing, that further leads societal interactions into one to one, one to many and many to one results in evolving massing conflicting opinions which further sets parameters in devising policies as tools to establish best governance mechanism that sets addressing link befitting all. Yet, socioeconomic individual best behavioral dynamism is so cumbersome that it would not succeed in capturing molecular referral interest. Hence projections are to be assimilated at some level based on the injection of all-around acceptable values to be harmoniously synchronized. That perhaps would provide addressable solutions. Mainly resolves on economic conflict, which is expected to achieve the best social alignments at different classes and strata.
Please let me know your opinion. Highly appreciate.
hi everyone, I have developed a simulation of a roundabout with a fixed time regulation, the lines of traffic lights in the roundabout are for vehicle storage. my question is: when we regulate by tricolor light signals, should we make all the conflict zones inactive? and is it normal that we will have vehicles crossing each other? any help will be appreciated, thanks in advance
The tigray conflict is an ongoing armed conflict that began in november 2020 in the tigray region of ethiopia, between two sides: the tigray regional government that is led by the tigray people's liberation front (tplf); and forces supporting ethiopian prime minister abiy ahmed, with the latter also receiving support from president isaias afwerki's eritrean forces. is this ethonalistic conflict began before as as political historical as search for self identity soverenity.
For those who accept review requests from journals, has anyone reviewed a manuscript of his/her colleague? what is the best thing to do in this case? to accept the review request and do a fair review? contact the journal to state that a conflict of interest exists? or something else?
Thanks in advance!
I am working on my graduation school dissertation, which looks into the relationship between servant leadership and conflict strategies, with age and role of conflict partner as moderating factors.
The current analysis I am proposing is:
1) correlation analyses - to look at the association between servant leadership/age and each conflict strategy
2) Hierarchical regression analysis - two way interaction of age/role of conflict partner on servant leadership->conflict strategy relationship. Finally, a three way interaction is performed. Meanwhile, for both analysis, gender and conflict severity will be controlled in step 1.
My questions are:
1) Does the above analysis procedure make sense? What is the difference of adopting a hierarchical regression vs a multiple linear regression as seen in some studies?
2) What would be the sample size needed?
3) For age as a predictor/moderator, does it make a difference if it is considered a continuous vs categorical variable? I am expecting a balanced age sample (below and above 40 yrs old)
I would great appreciate any comments and feedback!
Why do you suppose that nomadic people have been able to survive better in South Central Asia and Eastern Europe, where there exist ongoing conflicts than here in North America? do you think their lives will be like 50 or 100 years from now? Will the nomads still be moving their sheep and cattle down the road?
I've encountered a curious gap in the literature that I would love professional help to address! My Professors and I were discussing the need to identify American-based literature (if I can find any) on adversarial relationships and/or professional conflict between clinicians and their management in a healthcare organisation (such as a hospital). The issue is frequently discussed in other contexts (UK, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, etc) however, I've been searching high and low...I couldn't find much.
Is there genuinely little writing on this topic, or am I looking in the wrong places? Is there a term I'm missing? I would love your guidance.
I found conflicting information from various sources pertaining to the geology of my study area.
My question is has anybody experienced this? Also during the field study, I observed one study area had loose soils which easily collapsed at depths below 200 cm. The other area was loose but not collapsible while the other was so difficult to excavate even when wet. Does this give a picture of varying geology?
Can it be reported in my present study?
Should it form a foundation for new research?
What do researchers do when they find conflicting information on an area?
Please I need answers from geologists, soil scientists and other concerned experts.
NB: A notable report grouped the three areas as one geology- Bende-Ameki Formation. Other authors placed them as Ogwashi-Asaba Formation, Bende-Ameki and Imo Formations respectively
In regarding of maritime spatial management, conflicting among stakeholders in interests occur quite frequently. Besides of this, there are many overlaps of governmental management in some parts of the world. Is there anyone having studied about these? Let's discuss about these facts and mechanisms or measures to deal with them.

Most of the countries of Africa are affected by water war due to climate change, so let think together how to bring solution for this conflict of interest.
In the scenario of changing climate, increasing population, Post COVID scenario, Geopolitical conflicts, it's the time for all the stake holders especially farmers to meet, discuss, plan and revisit the existing strategies related to the future of agricultural practices and plantation drives. Climate Smart Plantation could be one of the best solution to all the above mentioned and other challenges.
Does anyone know how we can model two different kinds of drivers on the conflict point (connector) at the highway exit ramp using microsimulation (VISSIM or Aimsun)? 1. drivers use the right-turn indicator to exit from the highway, 2. drivers do NOT use the right-turn indicator (violating drivers) but they are exiting from the highway. #VISSIM #TrafficModelling #Drivingbehaviour #Aimsum
I'm interested in hearing others' experiences with and/or opinions on using both the Conners CPT-3 and the CATA. I've only recently begun using the CATA in addition to the CPT3, but more times than not, I find that patients produce conflicting profiles (unremarkable CATA, but significant CPT..or vice versa). Conners indicates that using both tests increases diagnostic accuracy (for ADHD). However, subsequent reliability studies show low shared variance between the two measures. So, I'm not sure how to make sense of this. Would love some feedback.
There is always a conflict between the Pure Sciences & Social Sciences about which is more releant. How do we resolve this?
Work-family conflict (WFC) results when work interferes with family time or space; or when family matters interfere with work. These WFC events can cause tension within family or at work. Can you suggest what theoretical lens (or theories or conceptual frameworks) can be used from sociology, organisational theory, family literature, feminist studies or psychology or conflict literature to study WFC?
I was wondering how people were dealing with remote work, being surrounded by family members, and, for some, home schooling their children, so my colleagues and I decided to administer a short survey (it only takes that 5 to 10 minutes to complete) on work-family conflict. The survey has been approved by Southeast Missouri State University’s Institutional Review Board. You are under no obligation to complete the survey and your responses will be anonymous. Should you choose to participate in our short survey, a link to the survey is provided below with a cover letter that informs you about the study and your rights as a participant.

The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic is likely to drive a range of security threats - conflict and militancy in sub-Saharan Africa.
Patience with government is starting to wane as the economic impact of restrictions is increasingly felt. As there are signs that patience is starting to wear thin as COVID-19 tests and results continue to contribute to the low levels of trust in governments.
While COVID-19 has taken centre stage, conflicts have continued uninterrupted. As Islamist militants in the Sahel and Mozambique have both carried out large-scale attacks in recent weeks, likely hoping to capitalise on distracted governments to advance their interests. In Lake Chad, Islamist militant group Boko Haram, seeks to discredit regional governments and recruit new members.
In the Sahel, the crisis is having a far more disruptive impact on the work of aid agencies, which are struggling to transport staff and supplies, and is likely to worsen humanitarian conditions in several conflict hotspots. COVID-19 is also likely to see conflict resolution processes and peacekeeping deprioritised amid travel freezes and budget cuts.
In the longer term, economic stress will push crime rates upwards. Routine patrols may be deprioritised in favour of enforcing curfews and reducing the spread. Organisations sending staff and executives on short-term trips will also need to plan for longer visits as they navigate travel restrictions, increasing their exposure to criminal activity.
Your contributions are needed.

I am confused about the results of a logistic regression (two logistic regressions, actually). In each case the odds ratio = 1.00, but the p-value for the independent variable is significant (<.05). How do I interpret this?
Science does not stand still. New opportunities for research keep appearing and, as a result, new findings and discoveries happen hand to hand with artifact discoveries. These discovery some time with considerable controversy in the literature, sometimes at unusually impoliteand unprofessional levels. Some time artifact discoveries also surprised the world of science.
1) Different groups presents different results on same material and trying to prove each other results as wrong. Is it not sicietificy sound if these groups exchange specimens before they claim the work of others is simply wrong?
2) In some cases materials have been considered to be with ground breaking discovery when the data can be interpreted more simply via other well-known mechanisms. Is it not import to look wider before claims a breakthrough discovery?
3) In some cases the experimental results are true, despite theory implying that this is not possible. Is it appropriate to reject a experimental output just because theory doesn't exits which can explain it?
4) Controversy and attention on a new anomalous phenomenon such as Room Temperature Superconductivity.
