Low self- monitors are more likely to control expressive behaviours incongruent with their own beliefs, attitudes and dispositions regardless of social situations. Emotional intelligence is the ability to be aware of and use emotions productively for reasoning and problem-solving. Those who are high on emotional intelligence are able to use and integrate their moods and emotions effectively. Researches in the Indian context, on self-monitoring and emotional intelligence among the retail stock market investors, are scarce.

Multinational companies’ (MNCs) activities in SSA countries could generate more value to the local economy if appropriate cooperation strategies are implemented for the benefit of both sides. We have analyzed the activities of MNCs in SSA countries, their capabilities and interests, and proposed strategies for the SSA side that could create more values for both sides. For each potential business opportunity, we have proposed a relevant cooperation strategy that could generate value for both sides. We found a wide range of projects that could improve the value generated for both sides in energy, agriculture, infrastructure, food processing, cosmetics, and health products. We can develop similar projects in many other SSA countries and use similar cooperation strategies. Those models could be adapted to other developing countries. MNCs with the relevant cooperation strategies, supported by local partners in SSA countries, could generate a broader value to share for the benefit of many. Keywords: Agriculture, Cooperation, Cosmetics, Energy, Globalization, Minerals, MNC.

The overall aim of this study was to analyze if the characteristics of the job emerged as direct predictors of the satisfaction with the couple relationship and, if applicable, identify those characteristics predicting low satisfaction, with a view to contribute to the prevention of psychosocial risks that affect social health in organizations. For the achievement of this aim, Karasek’s (1979) two-dimensional model was taken as a theoretical frame of reference. It focuses on job demands and the control that organizations offer their employees in order to address these demands. The sample of participants was formed by 124 employees. The results showed that the quadruple typology proposed by the two-dimensional model, as well as control had significant effects on satisfaction. Participants with low control presented lower levels of satisfaction than participants with high control. The results concluded that the characteristics of the job, as well the autonomy, the possibility of developing abilities and creativity, influence satisfaction with the couple relationship. Keywords: Job-Demands, Job-Control, Satisfaction with the Couple Relationship, Prevention of Psychosocial Risks at Work, Occupational Health.

Identifying factors that influence customers’ lazy usage success is paramount for practitioners and academics to develop successful strategies and behavioral models. Many technologies of touch screen, such as cell phone, ATM, and games navigation during working or playing, offer effortless input to attract users. Confirming those users’ perceived playfulness and usefulness with touch screen is vital for the survival of these innovations. Previous articles investigated the quality of system and information for technologies, but these phenomena are already well established. Relatively few studies discuss the expectation confirmation theory (ECT), perceived playfulness, technology acceptance model (TAM), and success of lazy usage on touch screen through satisfaction. This study surveys 366 cell phone users in Taiwan. Research findings indicated that the most of hypotheses were supported. Unexpectedly, the role of perceived usefulness impacted both satisfaction and lazy usage success that were not supported. It is important to identify the best ways to capitalize on users shift for fitting their new requirements, marketers gather more robust information about users’ needs and researchers qualify on the technology. Keywords: Expectation Confirmation Theory (ECT), Perceived Playfulness, Technology Acceptance Model (TAM), Lazy Usage Success.
