Energy plays a very important role in the process of attaining economic growth and
development. But the price to be paid for this development is very huge as more than 70 % of
energy needs in our economy is met from fossil fuel which is adversely affecting our
environment. Despite huge solar potential in our country we are unable to tap it. The total solar
potential for India is estimated as 750 GW (MNRE) but the current solar power installed
capacity is just 3 GW. This clearly brings out the fact that to protect our planet without
compromising the development goals we need to rigorously consider the tapping of solar
potential. This would help us to fight the problems like Global warming and climate change.
The present article is an attempt to investigate the measure to optimize solar power in future.
This could not happen without bringing a change in the attitude and behavior of the people. To
bring a change in the attitude and behavior of consumers we need to emphasize on creation of
habits through values. The cross- sectional data from 165 students’ samples using structured
questionnaire in Jaipur city is used in this study. The reason for selecting students as
respondents for the study is that today youth have more awareness about environment, global
warming, and the importance of green products. It also evidenced that the consumer’s positive
attitude along with the behavior towards environment, awareness of the eco-friendly products
and value of the (solar panels) is satisfactory then the consumers have positive behavioral
intention to adopt the solar panels. The results of the study could help us to develop effective
marketing strategies for solar panels in future.

The field of science is changing the world in many ways ACT (2017); however, studies have
reported the students’ lowest achievement and lower enrollment rate in science courses (Fayer,
2017; Filardo, 2016) with a negative attitude towards science (ATS) (Song & Bruning, 2016).
Specially, the ATS continues to be the dominant factor; importantly the decline in ATS has
emerged recently. Drawing on the ATS in higher education benefits, the current study
hypothesized that ATS would possibly a driving force in improving science degree programs in
three areas, first, increase in science enrollment, second, promoting higher achievement in
science, and finally, raising academic standards through positive attitude of head of departments
(HoDs) and vice chancellors (V.Cs). Technically, there is a need for analysis any possible
dissonance between students’ ATS and the institution’s (Faculty Members & Head) ATS, as both
are necessary for improving enrollment in science, and students’ achievement. This difference of
ATS may create a severe problem for students’ performance and/or institutional gross enrollment
in science, therefore, we empirically investigated the attitudes of students, parents, the faculty
members (FMs), Head of Departments (HoDs), and V.Cs towards science, graduates and
postgraduates (G-PGs) academic achievement and enrollment in science. Using stratified
sampling technique 1200 G-PGs, 212 faculty members (FMs), 40 HoDs, 500 parents, and 15
Vice Chancellors (VCs) /Vice-Presidents from fifteen universities/non-university institutions
(NUIs) selected.. We analyzed the ATS of 1967 participants thorugh stratified sampling
technique included from fifteen higher education institutions (universities/NUIs) of Sindh, to
identify whether ATS affects students’ achievement, and subject enrollment in both types of
institution. A panel of experts and pilot testing refined the data instruments. The overall
Cronbach alpha value was 0.87 and 0.89 for Test of Science Related Attitude (TOSRA) Students’
and Subjects Choice Sheet (SSCS) respectively.All participants’ ATS explored through Test of
Science Related Attitude (Fraser, B., & Lee, S. 2015), while G-PGs’ grades of midterm and final
test results considered as marks in science.

Smart roads have transformed the conventional roads into more efficient and drivers friendly,
however, the transition is not easy for both developed and developing nations. Therefore, the
successful development of smart roads is possible if these countries adequately address the sociopolitical,
psychological, organizational, cultural, financial, technological issues besides issues
related to government policies, public-private partnership and support, the belief, attitude, and
behavior. This study is an effort in the same line. Data was collected from Canada, France and
Saudi Arabia. PLS-SEM was used for data analysis. Hierarchical multiple regression was run for
moderation. The study found that innovative culture, public-private partnership, green energy,
safety and security, economic sustainability, government policies, top management support,
attitude and behavior are crucial for the development of smart roads. This study also suggeststhat
cultural issues need to be addressed for the success of smart roads.

Current study utilizes modeling of structural equation to investigate a theoretical social networking prototype that applies to an amount of 34,896 schooling students in India. The most separate frameworks of the prototype concern the children's behavior about social networking, the factors for use of social networking sites, the social media practices and the subjects included.The based systems include perceived teaching success and social effects of social media. The analysis explains the interactions between the various systems. There is also research into the influence of certain factors, such as parental know-how. Our research has enhanced the understanding of the social media paradigm. The findings upkeep the hypothesis that expected efficiency, social communications and social media influence are interrelated. Evidences of an opposite model means that the topic of the construction of social media, its history and future consultation quenches must be closely studied.

As of April 2016, out of 68,000 Muslim federal servants in Kedah, a total of 40,453
paid zakat to Kedah State Zakat Board (KSZB) through a monthly deduction scheme. It means
59.49 percent of potential Muslim federal servants working in the state of Kedah paid zakat
through a monthly deduction scheme in Kedah. However, Muslim public educators, who are part
of Muslim public servants, have higher income zakat compliance behavior than the rest of
Muslim public servants in Kedah. Despite a religious decree on the compulsory position of zakat
on employment income in Malaysia, many Muslims still fail to fulfill their religious obligation to
pay. Studies on zakat compliance have shown mixed and inconclusive evidence regarding the
determinants of income zakat compliance. Hence, this study investigates the influence of
attitude, knowledge, promotional exposure, and self-efficacy on compliance behavior of income
zakat in Kedah, Malaysia. This study employs the quantitative approach using PLS-SEM to
analyze primary data collected using a questionnaire instrument to determine significant
determinants of compliance behavior of income zakat. This study reveals that attitude and selfefficacy
have significant relationships with the compliance behavior of income zakat. However,
this study discovers that knowledge and promotional exposure are not significant determinants of
compliance behavior of income zakat in Kedah. This study is hoped to provide evidence that
could be used as guidance for suitable policy and measures by Kedah State Zakat Board to
improve zakat collection in the future.

Although consumers show high interest in as well as positive attitudes for organic food, the actual purchase of organic foods is regularly quite low. Previous studies have used the theory of planned behavior to explain consumers’ intention to buy organic food but have paid little attention on consumers’ trust. Literature also have emphasized that trust has been plating crucial role in making purchase decision. Hence, the study investigated the mediating role of consumer trust in making purchase decision on organic foods. A total of 159 customers from 3 supermarkets in Thai Nguyen province were elicited for the information needed in the study. Hayes’s bootstrapping procedure and corresponding SPSS macro was used to analyze the data. Results showed that trust has mediated between positive attitudes and intention to purchase organic foods. As subjective norm and perceived behavioral control have impacts on intention to buy organic food, trust also mediated these relationships. Therefore, in making purchase decisions, trust on the food has a major impact. Findings can be used to craft policies and innovations on organic foods to increase the trust of consumers thereby increasing organic consumption in Thai Nguyen, Vietnam.

Despite a religious decree on the compulsory position of zakat on employment income
in Malaysia, many Muslims still fail to fulfill their religious obligation to pay. Although there
has been an increasing trend in the collection of business zakat, paddy zakat, and income zakat,
there were some Muslims in Kedah who have not paid zakat to Kedah State Zakat Board (KSZB)
so much so that the present increase in the collection of zakat is still not sufficient for
distribution to all zakat recipients because of the increasing number of zakat asnaf (Haji-Othman,
2017). There is a rising trend in the collection of zakat. Yet, it is still insufficient to cover all
zakat recipients, reflecting the efficiency (or the lack of it) of the Kedah State Zakat Board
(KSZB) management. Studies on zakat compliance have shown mixed and inconclusive
evidence regarding the determinants of income zakat compliance. Therefore, this study
reexamines the effects of attitude, religiosity, self-efficacy, and moral obligations on the
compliance behavior of income zakat in Kedah. This study employs the quantitative approach;
primary data is collected using questionnaires to determine significant determinants of
compliance behavior of income zakat. This study provides empirical evidence that attitude,
religiosity, self-efficacy, and moral obligation are significant determinants of compliance
behavior of income zakat in Kedah. This study is hoped to provide evidence that could be used
as guidance for suitable policy and measures by Kedah State Zakat Board to improve zakat
collection in the future.
