elements. Attitudes are shaped throughout life. Initially, we are influenced by parents, teachers and a peer group, and in the later periods of life we tend to be influenced by people we meet, e.g. in the workplace, or as a result of shared interests. This process is explained by the theory of social learning, according to which attitudes are formed by imitating the models we choose (Hjerm et al., 2018; Mishra, 2018). In fact, attitudes may correspond to the general social norms or be group-specific

Several studies have been conducted on the knowledge of epilepsy among teachers and on their attitudes towards epilepsy in many countries, as in the United States (Bishop et al., 2004; 2006); in Europa (Prpic et al., 2003; Kaleyias et al., 2005; Mecarelli et al., 2010) and Asia (Bekiroglu et al., 2004; Lee et al., 2010; Thacker et al., 2008).

People’s attitudes to dogs in service: A pilot study of a new 15-point scale

Interference with and discrimination against service dogs is a significant difficulty for people with disabilities. This research was designed to test a new measure of attitudes to service dogs: The People’s Attitudes to Dogs in Service Scale (PADS) to determine whether or not problematic behaviour might be related to tendencies toward dogmatism. An online survey was completed by 34 male and 50 female participants. Participants answered questions about dogmatism and their attitudes to

This article presents the newest trends among pedestrians’ and car drivers’ attitudes from a survey performed at a roadside at the area of zebra crossings in Poland in 2018. Trends in road users’ attitudes and performance allow an understanding of the causes of road safety crashes to decrease deaths and injuries. Surveys of attitudes from questionnaires help gauge knowledge of road traffic laws and risky behaviours regarding road safety issues at crosswalks. Data of 800

THE GLUEVAR RISK MEASURE AND INVESTOR’S ATTITUDES TO RISK– AN APPLICATION TO THE NON-FERROUS METALS MARKET

Value-at-Risk, defined as a conditional loss beyond Value-at-Risk. However, the choice of a risk measure is an individual decision of an investor and it is directly related to his attitudes to risk. In this paper the new risk measure is proposed – the GlueVaR risk measure, which can be defined as a linear combination of VaR and GlueVaR. It allows for calculating the level of investment loss depending on investment’s attitudes to risk. Moreover, GlueVaR meets the subadditivity property, therefore it

Determinants of Binge Drinking among Adolescents in Denmark

The aim of this study is to assess whether peer alcohol drinking, mothers’ and fathers’ attitudes toward alcohol drinking, and the adolescents’ own financial situations (e.g., the presence of pocket money) predict binge drinking among adolescents in Denmark.This study is based on the Danish data from the European School Survey Project on Alcohol and Other Drugs, which took place in 2011.

ROAD ACCIDENT ESTIMATION MODEL IN URBAN AREAS

Summary. Urban areas are significantly different in terms of traffic risk. In a decisive manner, they are the result of urban development policies. The shape, size and configuration of an entire urban area, the facilities to satisfy people and the need for mobility of goods, as well as behavioural attitudes of the population, are essential for a traffic pattern and its associated risks. In this framework, the purpose of this paper is to identify the effects of urban area characteristics on road

This study investigated the experiences of men and women with vision disabilities knowing about and participating in information programs provided by guide dog organisations; and investigated the way information programs affect people’s perceptions and attitudes towards guide dogs in Japan where people are hesitant to acquire a guide dog. The results suggest that the information programs had been widely publicised and were familiar to participants. Younger women were the most experienced

CONCEPTUALIZING SUBJECTIVE WELL-BEING AND ITS MANY DIMENSIONS – IMPLICATIONS FOR DATA COLLECTION IN OFFICIAL STATISTICS AND FOR POLICY RELEVANCE

Subjective well-being encompasses several distinct but interacting aspects of people’s feelings, attitudes, and experiences. This paper assesses the state of the art for measuring these dimensions of people's lives, which typically involves analyzing self-reports of subjective well-being collected in survey instruments; however, other potentially complementary, technology-driven tools are emerging as well. We first answer the question, “what is subjective well-being?” and unpack its

Indeed, the closer the alignment the greater the likelihood of recruitment (Blackmore et al., 2006; Walker & Kwan, 2012). Most studies regarding school leadership recruitment have focused specifically on the merit-selection of school principals. The research reported here is unique

Afterwards, because of the limit of the UAV aerial image amount and the similar influence of each attitude angle error on targeting and geometric correction, we use equivalent optical axis angle to represent platform and aircraft attitudes. Furthermore, we also predict and compensate the error of the equivalent angle. In this process, we adopt SVM and
