Abstract

Purpose

This poem aims to offer a concise representation of practised gender bias, in favour of the male, in business dealings, and to challenge that behaviour.

Design/methodology/approach

The poem takes a fictional form.

Findings

The poem emphasises the value of money as a symbol of power capable of overriding assumptions about the relative dominance of the male in business negotiations, together with assertive behaviour on the part of the female.

Research limitations/implications

The poem underlines and challenges the tendency of some men to assume that women have only limited control over wealth in the world of commerce.

Originality/value

The brief poem, rendered as an account in the first‐person point‐of‐view, presents an encounter in which a chauvinistic environment must adjust to the reality that women necessarily perform an important financial role.

Abstract

Purpose

The poem aims to be a reflection on the tension between dedication to the task and the temptation to take one's own reward as a worker.

Design/methodology/approach

The approach takes the form of a fictional poem.

Findings

The poem presents the tension between, on the one hand, workers' productivity and the regimented factory system that relies on the labour force and, on the other hand, the workers' desire to take some immediate benefits from the fruits of their effort.

Research limitations/implications

The poem prompts consideration of the place of the worker, particularly in mass production factories, as a complex human element rather than merely a provider of labour.

Originality/value

The poem presents a personal and concise portrayal of the human in the greater machine of modern production.

Abstract

THE monumental History of Criticism by Professor Saintsbury, and Mr. Hall Caine's lighter series of studies would be sufficient to put anyone on their guard against accepting as final many of the critical decisions of the important literary reviews. Mr. Caine's book particularly is a revelation of error and spite such as makes one wonder that anonymous literary criticism should be received with toleration by bookmen.

Abstract

Purpose

This study aims to measure the level of public awareness about the threat of the emerging coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic among the Omani population. It also aims to investigate the mediating effect of the Omanis’ attitudes and behaviors with underlying conditions of COVID-19.

Design/methodology/approach

A cross-sectional study was conducted to collect data via an online survey of Omani citizens and residents from various geographic areas in Oman, 305 responses were received. SPSS and partial least square-structural equation modeling were used for data analysis.

Findings

The study revealed that public awareness regarding the COVID-19 pandemic was significantly influenced by people’s perceived risk, information source and health-related knowledge. Further, preventive behavior during the disease spread has a significant direct and indirect impact on their awareness. However, an insignificant mediation effect of public attitude was found between the source of information and public awareness.

Research limitations/implications

This study is limited by the scarcity of related literature in the Omani context. It is recommended that future research complete an in-depth study of public awareness regarding COVID-19, using other constructs and/or other data collection techniques.

Practical implications

This research will provide governmental health authorities and policymakers with a guideline to establish more efficient pandemic containment strategies to control public behavior toward the COVID-19 pandemic and curb viral prevalence.

Social implications

This research will help in improving prevention measures against COVID-19 are recommended to be more educated through a more effective mechanism to raise public attitude regarding pandemic prevalence positively.

Originality/value

The originality of this research can be drawn from key findings that indicate that people overall gained knowledge about how to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic and the accuracy of information significantly impacts public awareness.
