Predictors of Investors’ Participation in the Egyptian Stock Market: Application of Theory of Planned Behavior
Original Research
Despite the opportunities of growth for the Egyptian stock market, it still offers limited potential to attract investors. This paper explores how various factors related to attitudes, subjective norms and perceived behaviour control as indicted by the theory of planned behaviour affect stock market participation (SMP) in the emerging market of Egypt. The aim of this paper is to study how the influence of factors as financial literacy, risk, influence of others, confidence in the regulator among others, affect consumers’ investment decision to participate in the stock market. A pilot study when combined with literature review revealed eight factors that might affect the investors’ intention and behaviour in the Egyptian stock market. The study then apply TPB to develop a comprehensive model to include the most important factors that may have a strong potential to enhance the equity holding behaviour and explain SMP in the emerging market of Egypt; a market with a lot of potential but rarely studied. This model can be further tested across different developing markets as well. The study concluded that investment intention could predict the actual investment in the stock market (which represents behaviour). Nevertheless, the behaviour is not determined by only those factors tested. Other moderating factors (as change in interest rates, taxes, transaction costs…) can be examined to test the effect on SMP, which opens the room for future research.

Implications of Wrongful Termination Suits in Industrial Facilities
Original Research
In every industrial facility, situations arise that involve the termination of employees. The process of termination can be a risky endeavor. Companies often face charges of wrongful termination when dismissing an employee. This paper provides unique insight into the legal ramifications of terminating an employee. The focus here is on legal precedent in cases that have involved addiction and lifestyle issues. Many factors often contribute to the merit or lack-there-of in the litigation of such cases.

Addressing Color Blind Awareness in the Classroom
Original Research
On average, one out of every twelve men and one out of every 200 women do not see colors the same as everyone else. And yet engineering technology programs, not to mention industry, to often fail to take these people into account. This article discusses the types of color vision deficiencies (which are often grouped together under the misnomer of color blindness) that exist and some of the tools that will allow those who can see the full color spectrum to view things as if they had a color vision deficiency. Targeted towards educators as a call-to-action, and not intended as an article on how to teach color vision deficiencies to students, the goal of this article is to educate professors so that they can better get their messages across to those students who suffer from color vision deficiencies. Finally, a number of suggestions are offered on how to choose colors such that they do not cause confusion for those that suffer from color vision deficiencies.

STEM Education Using Emulation Software for Hydraulic Fluid Power Applications
Original Research
STEM education is an indispensable method to prepare students for future careers in engineering and manufacturing. Tools such as simulation software provide one way to explore and expand high school students’ knowledge of hydraulic fluid power systems. Traditionally, hydraulic fluid power college courses have used a physical trainer equipped with cylinders, valves and hoses that demonstrate various circuits important to the understanding of fluid flow and system characteristics. Using Simumatik3D, a free downloadable emulation software developed in Sweden, a group of high school students were able to assemble an emulated environment where they can create new hydraulic circuits, allowing them to learn outside of the classroom and preparing them for classroom activities with a real physical trainer. The software system was selected as the platform to emulate the trainer because of the ease of use, its 3D environment and the potential for future expansion into electromechanical emulations that leverage the use of Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) and Robotics. Preliminary results of a small sample of high school students show that students were responsive to the Simumatik3D software and that the project met several best practices for engineering STEM applications.

Fiedler and Chemers Revisted; Understanding the Implications of the Least Preferred Co-worker Scale
Original Research
The importance of succession planning and choosing the right candidate for the job cannot be underestimated. Having a conceptual framework for clear and honest evaluation of a candidate for an open position is a key factor in choosing the “best” one. Fiedler and Chemers work provides one matrix for determining a fit in terms of their Least Preferred Co-Worker scale. It is easy to check off minimum thresholds for education and experience. The evaluation of “fit” for the job is subjective and often laborious task. While many factors contribute to the success of a person in their job, the idea of knowing the best fit for a given situation is a credible and many times key assessment in selecting the eventual employee. The aim of this paper is to immerse the participants in a situation where they must determine the overall environment through the lens of Fiedler and Chemers’ Contingency Theory and select a new leader for the organization.

Defining Product Lifecycle Management: Comparing the Perspectives of Users and Consultants
Original Research
Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) is a strategy that is being leveraged by many companies to improve both the execution of new product development as well as the general operations of the company. Because the breadth of PLM is so wide, many companies struggle with defining PLM. This lack of a definition causes confusion within the company that is confounded by the many definitions supplied by consultants and solution providers. This paper seeks to develop a user centric definition of PLM, and offers guidance for individuals implementing a PLM strategy.

Reed-Solomon Based Bar Code Character Substitution Rates
Original Research
The use of Reed-Solomon error correction (RSEC) in bar code symbologies has been around since the early 1990s, but there hasn’t been an in depth, publicly accessible study done on their resistance to character substitution errors since the original studies done in the early 1990s at Ohio University. This article reports on the test results from the scanning of more 23 million scans resulting in more than 2.39 billion characters across four different RSEC enabled bar code symbologies (Data Matrix, QR code, PDF417 and Aztec Code) with five different scanners. The results show that the RSEC enabled symbologies are capable of achieving at least a 1 in 797 million error rate, allowing for their use in instances where decoded data accuracy is imperative.
