Abstract
Problem Statement: A mathematical technique to measure nonprofit management performance has eluded researchers for more than three decades. Traditional, analytical techniques have failed to find a solution that had broad acceptance.
Research Questions: Will heuristic methodology provide an acceptable, approximate solution to the measurement of management deficiency in a nonprofit organisation?
Purpose of the Study: Demonstrate that a heuristic methodology can be used to build a model that will measure individual management deficiency and produce an assessment of individual management strengths and weaknesses for the board members of nonprofit organisations.
Research Methods: The heuristic methodology known as simmulated annealing was adopted in an attempt to build a model that will produce an acceptable, approximate solution to the measurement of individual management deficiency.
Findings: A heuristic model was built and tested and satisfactory results were obtained. The results were validated by demonstrating that there was an alignment of the results produced by the heuristic model and those obtained by an alternate method.
Conclusions: It has been established that this heuristic model will produce an acceptable, approximate solution to the measurement of management deficiency in nonprofit board members across a wide range of factors.

Abstract
Problem Statement: The aim of our research was to analyse the coding of facial expression of basic emotions by preschool children from the point of view of the humanistic -psychological approach.
Research Questions: Our empirical research is aimed to test the hypotheses that preschool children’s communication experiences with peers impact the facial expression coding accuracy.
Purpose of the Study: Based on the humanistic-psychological approach we determine accuracy of emotional expression coding not only as a correspondence between expressive codes and elaborated schemes and models of expressions, but as a result of observer’s communication experience included into different interaction practices, interaction experience of preschool children with their peers.
Research Methods: The experimenter asked preschool child to portray of the following emotions: happiness, surprise, fear, and sadness. The accuracy index of children’s coding of facial expressions was scored based on the responses of children-decoders (familiar and unfamiliar children boys and girls). The collected data were computed using the methods of descriptive statistics and the method of comparison of paired samples.
Findings: There are no significant differences in coding of facial expressions of familiar and unfamiliar children, when the observer’s gender is controlled. The coding of the facial expressions of familiar boys is significantly higher than of unfamiliar ones, as well as familiar girls. There is no difference in coding of facial expression produced by familiar and unfamiliar girls.
Conclusions: Our study differs from other researches in this field by applying observer’s response, which acts both as encoder and decoder involved into interaction circle with others, as an indicator for the accuracy of facial expression coding. Summing up we received results that communication experience mostly influences the processes of coding of facial expressions in boys if compared with girls.

Abstract
Problem Statement:
The relevance is the use of information technologies (IT) in teaching foreign language. It is caused by insufficient analysis of the problem on using IT in the educational process.
Research Questions: Analysis of Approaches and Models on Interactive Teaching
Purpose of the Study: Foreign language is an indispensable component of professional teaching for meeting the challenges associated with students` professional activities. The basic formation of necessary background knowledge is based on using didactic models and project technologies with the help of special technological tools.
Research Methods: A survey was carried out among students of the Kazakh University with the major on “Information Systems” (Bachelors of IT).
Findings: Findings of the analysis on teaching foreign language, determination of pedagogical techniques and principles, and the use of project technologies helped the authors develop an effective teaching methodology that ensures a high level of students` mastery using English in their professional communicative processes. The proposed methodology has been tested in the “Project Management” course.
Conclusions: A reproductive model of teaching a foreign language is focused on the transfer of knowledge and training practical skills in the use of the language material in terms of direct communication. Moreover, there is a certain gap between the content of foreign language instruction and the requirements of employers to the level of the language proficiency among graduates.

Abstract
Problem Statement: The study of pragmalinguistic specific features of social and political texts is an important, but scantily analysed direction in the contemporary linguistics.
Research Questions: Translation techniques of social and political texts
Purpose of the Study: The purpose is to analyse specific pragmalinguistic and translation features of social and political texts on the basis of the English and Russian languages.
Research Methods: Methods of the research are component analysis, quantitative analysis, comparative, contrastive, and translation analyses.
Findings: Research carried out shows the interconnection between semantics, syntax and pragmatics. The most important task for the translator is to transfer the pragmatics of the source text. This is characterized by the fact that the author of the target text should take into account structural specific features of the source text and pay a special attention to cultural differences.
Conclusions: Pragmalinguistic features of social and political texts were analysed in the aspect of paradigmatic and syntagmatic relations of the English and Russian languages. It is analysed that during the translation process of social and political texts a great variety of passive forms of the source language is changed into the active forms of the target language.

Abstract
Title of the Paper: Towards a profile definition of the educator in street-based sex work setting
Problem Statement: The advantages of outreach have been widely documented, however little research has been done about educator’s profile in sex work setting
Research Questions: What are the social skills, theoretical and practical knowledge, attitudes and beliefs that the outreach worker should have?
Purpose of the Study: This study has two major purposes: 1) to identify the characteristics of the outreach worker 2) to understand the role of training and continuous education in this context. We aim to understand the outreach staff opinions, regarding their personal professional experience: beginner, intermediate, advanced
Research Methods: This study has adopted a descriptive and analytic qualitative methodology. Data were collected from July to October 2013, through semi-structured interviews. Interviews were conducted with the 6 members of an outreach team that provide services for street-based female prostitutes, in the city of Coimbra, Portugal. We used content analysis to analyze the data and WebQDA software
Findings: Respondents identify 2 types of skills: 1) social and personal 2) theoretical and practical. In the former we find communication skills that streamline the interpersonal relationship and in second, the know-how or expertise in diverse fields of knowledge. The less experienced reveals a lack of practical and theoretical background as handicaps, which seems to interfere with self-confidence and outreach perception
Conclusions: A good agreement is generally found between the respondents, concerning the definition of the skills required. The respondents define an ideal outreach profile and argue that the professional has to have skills at the following levels: social, personal (attitudes and believes), theoretical and practical knowledge. These data support the view that more training and continuous education are required.

Title: Predictors of QOL for adults with acne: The Contribution of perceived stigma
Pages

Author(s): Johanna Liasides, Fotini-Sonia Apergi
Open Access

Full Text 15
Abstract
Problem Statement: As dermatology patients complain that their psychological distress is extensive and often overlooked, it is concerning that there is a paucity of research investigating factors associated with acne-related QOL.
Research Questions: What is the predictive capacity of perceived stigma, self-rated severity, location and previous history of acne, gender, age, relationship status and education for the QOL of adult dermatology patients?
Purpose of the Study: This study aimed to compile a preliminary list of risk factors for psychosocial distress as a result of having acne in adulthood, while specifically examining the role of an under investigated variable - perceived stigma – due to the high levels of stigmatization reported by these individuals.
Research Methods: Adults with acne (N=119 mean age: M = 26.37), recruited from private dermatology offices in Athens were administered the Feelings of Stigmatization Questionnaire (FSQ Ginsburg & Link, 1989) and Acne-Specific Quality of Life Questionnaire (Acne-QoL Allison, 1996). Multiple regression analysis was conducted in order to assess the capacity of various psychosocial and demographic variables to predict acne-related QOL.
Findings: Gender, age, history of acne, self-rated severity of acne and perceived stigma emerged as significant predictors of acne-related QOL. While perceived stigma and self-rated severity of acne represented significant predictors for all three domains of acne-related quality of life (self-perception, role-social and role-emotional), the former variable made the largest contribution to the regression model.
Conclusions: This research study provides preliminary evidence that adults who feel stigmatized are at risk for experiencing a poor quality of life as a result of having acne. Potential risk factors of secondary importance, which can aid the screening of psychological distress in these individuals, may also include one’s self-rated severity of acne, age, gender and previous history of acne.
