In today’s world, science encompasses many ways of gaining information which helps individuals know themselves and their environment better and develop and renew this information frequently. Teaching science and technology to individuals help them to learn how adopt and adapt an inclination which forces them to think objectively and make the right decision confronting different events and situations. This inclination provides a comfortable life for them as well as for their family and their environment (Akgun, 2001). If students learn science using a scientific procedure and skill they would be able to use these procedures and skills in their daily life. In this procedure, while students’ attitudes towards science increase, they develop their creativity skills. During the primary educational period, courses on science and technology achieve a great importance comparing to the other courses since these courses teach students the environment, natural events and scientific developments as well as critical thinking and problem solving.

...ATTITUDE OF MALE EMPLOYEES TOWARD FEMALE MANAGERS IN SELECTED ORGANIZATIONS IN GHANA Alexander Preko PhD/CE, Business Studies Department Wisconsin International University College, Ghana, Legon Ghana ABSTRACT The study examines the views of male employees working under female heads in selected organizations in Ghana. The research is significant because it testifies how male negatively regard female heads despite series of both international and national conferences and platforms that advocate for women to assume managerial positions at the workplace. The study employed a case study and descriptive research design. The sample size was 122 respondents from 17 organizations. A purposive random technique was used to select only male employees who have worked or are still working under female heads. Questionnaires and secondary data were used to collect data. The Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) was used to analyze data which were presented into simple descriptive tables. The study revealed that majority of the male employees (69.5%) preferred to work under male managers and coded managerial positions as masculine position. It is recommended, therefore, that male employees should embrace and integrate female heads in decision making positions, as women now constitute majority of the working population in the world.

With that said attitudes are formed and influenced, how individual and group behaviors are affected by society, there are also the three main components of attitude. To fully understand attitudes one must first think about what forms and influences them. An attitude can be acquired in several ways. There is the direct contact of personal experiences, which throughout a life time takes all the experiences and adds them up. Then applies them to the personality, keep in mind these can be positive or negative. If there are three experiences two negative and one positive the outcome will be a negative, it all would depend on the exact combination of factors. Attitudes can also be learned, I have noticed this first hand. When spending time around curtain people I have noticed that I would start to act like the others and if people look closely at themselves they would see just how much this happens (Coon, 2013). There can also be bias because of the experiences a person goes through, for example if a person has many negative experiences this could lead to that person have a negative outlook. This always will happen within groups (like teams, friends or even coworkers); it may not always be you changing. ......

...as an accompanying reverse example, the British government then decided to invest tens of millions of pounds in the development of the Docklands Light Railway, which brought new corporate branches, job opportunities, and development incentives to the Docklands until they became one of the most important parts of London from one of the most irrelevant. 7. How do people learn about politics and where do political attitudes come from? List the most important agents of political socialization in your life. Discuss the roles of public opinion polls in generating opinion. Do political opinion polls influence how people vote and how they feel about certain politicians? People learn about politics from the immediate social environment of their roots: schooling (although our schooling struggles to be secular and non partisan), family, friends, classmates, colleagues, and the goings on of the environment around them. For example, someone growing up in a warzone may inevitably develop political opinions about the opposing side. More advancedly, political attitudes come from independent thought and study, not only the continuation of trends; this is where original political ideas come from, whether positive or negative. For example, Communism took some time to develop in the literature and philosophy before it became a real political action (in the days even before it was a formidable force). The most important agents of political socialization in my life have been to read. I......

People can also be conflicted or ambivalent toward an object, meaning that they simultaneously possess both positive and negative attitudes toward the item in question. First person who came to my mind with a really positive attitude is my cousin Navin Yadav. He has aura around him that makes one feel happy and energetic, so I decided to interview him.

How did you feel about it and how did you deal with it? Navin: - I have problem in remembering thing, my memory betrays me most of the time. This problem mad me bad in studies and more over I was really good at sports, especially cricket. I used to score badly but never felt bad because all I loved was cricket. As I reached class 10th I got selected to play for a stadium team of Gurgaon, but my parents didn’t allowed me to join them and asked me to study hard as it was a board class. I felt heartbroken that day and just wanted to do nothing. As the year passed I scored well in studies but was never happy about it. Then in 11th standard they made me go for biology but I was a maths guy. I started to live saddened and just allowed to my life to......
