Abstract

The usage of mobile phones has increased dramatically, and phones become an essential accessory in our personal, social and professional life. Mobile phones can act as a reservoir of many pathogenic organisms. Mobile phones are ideal breeding sites for pathogens as they are kept warm and snug in our pockets and handbags. The important factor of contamination is the personal hygiene level. The aim of the study was to conduct a survey to identify the level of awareness about mobile phone microbial contamination and to assess the hygienic practice of its usage among the young adults. A self-administered questionnaire was designed and distributed among 100 mobile phone users. The data were then analysed descriptively. Chi square test was used to assess the associations between variables. Among the participants, 66% reported that they clean their phone less than once a week, and the majority was generally unaware of the infection risks associated with mobile phone usage. Respondents with tertiary education had higher levels of mobile hygiene practices compared to those with primary or secondary education (p<0.0005). Students had higher levels of mobile phone hygiene compared to unemployed and employed respondents (p=0.009). The respondents older than 25 years old had lower levels of mobile phone hygiene (p=0.002). This study suggests that awareness about mobile phone microbial contamination is lacking. Therefore, multimodal awareness programs are needed to reduce the associated risks.

Abstract

Facebook has become increasingly important social media channel, not only in civilian society but also in the military sector. As one of the social media platforms, it can be used as a strategic communication tool for opinion-forming and psychological operations. Facebook is used by big and small organizations to communicate within the public sphere. It can also facilitate communication and interaction with potential recruits, family members, and friends. The Malaysian Army, the biggest component in the Malaysian Armed Forces (MAF) is aiming to fulfill its vision as a credible Army force in achieving peace and stability for the country. After eighty-six years since its inception, the question rises whether the Malaysian Army remains relevant in communicating information to the general public about security and sovereignty of the nation. Hence, the Malaysian Army optimised its communication strategy by using Facebook to communicate to the people at large in the cyber space. In this study, we conducted a content analysis of the Malaysian Army Facebook to explore its potential in building the influence and empowerment of the Malaysia Army. The results indicated that the the Malaysian Army had moderately operated its Facebook as a communication channel for various military operations and activities, hence it is suggested that they optimize the social media platform to instil the sense of patriotism and the confidence among the people.

The issues of abuse of power, corruption, undiscipline, lack of integrity and so on have become the focus of the mass media. Therefore, the implementation of Quality Management System (QMS) based on Shari'ah (MS1900: 2014) should be raised as the main agenda and play an important role in inculcating good values for each individual employee in an organization. Furthermore, SPK MS1900 is the first Shari’ah-compliant quality management standard that has been introduced in Malaysia and also in the world. Therefore, this paper aims to discuss the results of the study of the appreciation of the value of integrity in the implementation of this MS1900 to the employees of the organization who successfully obtained its certification.

In summary, the findings of this study become a starting point for other organizations to strive to achieve the MS1900 standard by emphasizing the value of integrity so that it becomes a practice in an effort to comply with the requirements of Islamic Shari'ah at all times.

Abstract

National security is of paramount interests to small states. Security cannot be solely dependent on military might alone. It requires the actions at various fronts including diplomatic, intelligence and economic, and delivered in a concerted effort by a whole-of government and whole-of nation approach. Malaysia is well blessed by the basic instruments of power i.e. diplomacy, informational, military and economic elements (DIME). However, for efficient employment of all these instruments of power, a coherent set of National Security Policy documents must be formulated and implemented with strong leadership at all levels to achieve an effective outcome for National Security. This paper endeavours to investigate how small nations can use their instruments of national power to support their national security objectives. The Malaysian context is used as an example to validate the employment of the various elements of national power to protect and secure the nation whilst confronting the various non-traditional security threats.

THE EVOLUTION OF COMBAT MOTIVATION IN THE MILITARY

Endrynixon. A., Ananthan. S

 

Abstract

Motivation has always been a critical element in any military force in managing soldiers in military missions. The article reviews the evolution that has taken place in motivation factors in managing soldiers over the hostile decades of war and conflicts. Relevant literatures were reviewed to examine motivational factors among soldiers during World War I, World War II and other conflicts in the 20th century. The analysis highlights that although primary cohesion plays an important role, secondary group cohesion has become an additional motivating factor during combat as the nature of conflict progressed from a single combat force to a combined force involving other combat support elements or multinational forces for military missions. The study concludes that the influencing factors of motivation in the military can be categorized into three perspectives. First; individual that surrounds on what is conscientiously right and self satisfaction. Second; social that refers to social responsibility to the country, nation, organisation and unit and finally; organisational which relates to those that provide guidelines and the necessary support to achieve the organisational goal. The review provides an overview of the evolution in motivational factors in a combat environment and suggest for further exploration in non-combat situations.
