S-curve 11th is the target industry which promotes Eastern Economic Corridor (ECC) in Thailand. The state-of-the-art in defense technology is increasing all the time including Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) which can be used for the media production in defense technology. UAS pilots for media production in defense technology are different from other UAS pilots. They require hard and soft skills such as management, decision, planning and knowledge for controller and cinematography including ability to choose and operate the right equipment for filming aerial movies properly and creative talent to film movies. The UAS knowledge and controller can be learned from a remoted pilot license course but the soft skills can be partly developed from experiences. The purpose of this study is to lay guideline for using the UAS media production in defense technology with the expectation of providing specific views and multiple domains in research area. It is a combination of engineering, science, art and management. The content in this article is based on experiences from UAS operation.</p> 2022-07-20T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 DRIVERS AND CHALLENGES IN MUNICIPAL SDGS FROM COLLABORATIVE GOVERNANCE PERSPECTIVE 2022-07-20T10:20:28+00:00 Satoshi Ishida <p>Collaborative governance is gaining attention as a model for improving public administration and increasing citizens' trust in government. Over the past two decades, theoretical and empirical studies have considered mechanisms for new forms of governance, and a variety of evidence assures that stakeholders can come together and work cooperatively to solve mutual problems. Existing research indicates that collaborative governance can be a possible alternative to command-and-control or adversarial policymaking and its implementation. In addition, there is interest in research that recognizes the variables that influence collaborative governance outcomes and whether collaboration is successful. These include the initial conditions of a collaborative process and essential elements of collaborative placemaking, such as trust-building and facilitative leadership. This study analyzes the literature on collaborative governance in terms of theoretical and empirical aspects, focusing on municipal SDGs in Japan. The SDGs are aimed at sustainable development in both developed and developing countries, and recently even in Japan, some local governments have been actively working to rethink their existing policies in terms of SDGs. This study examines the drivers, conditions, and challenges of collaborative governance from the perspective of municipal SDGs.</p> 2022-07-20T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 PATTERNS OF EVERYDAY TECHNOLOGY: SMALL MACHINES IMPACTING LIFE IN COLONIAL PUNJAB 2022-07-20T10:28:31+00:00 Mandakini Thakur <p>Colonial Punjab in the late nineteenth and the first half of the twentieth century was characterized by considerable socio-economic changes brought up by mostly due to the introduction and adoption of new everyday life technologies which impacted the life of the average person in both urban and rural areas. This research article elaborates the impact of novel technology of electricity and associated items like the electric fan and bulb and everyday machines of bicycle, sewing-machine and typewriter on the colonial Punjabi society. The article reveals that within a short span of time, electricity and everyday machines successfully perforated all sections and made life easier and comfortable for the general public in colonial Punjab. The bicycle and sewing machine and typewriter empowered people in general and women in particular, making them move freely and also helping them to earn livelihood. The Indian reform organizations started advocating sewing machine for Indian women’s upliftment. The successful assimilation of everyday western technologies was perhaps one of the best positive outcomes of colonialism which gives credibility to the fact that technology when used for welfare is always progressive.</p> 2022-07-20T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 LEGAL LANGUAGE IN THE DIGITAL ENVIRONMENT: A REVIEW OF LANGUAGE SIMPLIFICATION PROJECTS 2022-07-20T10:37:39+00:00 Mohammed Al Rezan Md Ershadul Karim <p>Ordinary subscribers face difficulties in understanding legal language, jargon, legislation and contract terms included in the privacy policies or terms of services used in the digital services, especially in smartphone apps. In particular, software developers are expected to include simpler language to comply with the legal provisions, and the users demand clearer language in the privacy policies or terms of services of the apps to provide informed consent. This paper reviews two projects that aim to simplify legal languages, one for developers and one for users. The primary aim of these projects is to encourage clearer legal language and provide reforms and proposals to improve current practices. It has been revealed that these efforts to simplify legal language are applied to specific categories and narrow fields and do not replace the original legal documents.</p> 2022-07-20T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 AN ANALYSIS OF MALAMUD’S PROSE FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF BUBER’S I-YOU PHILOSOPHY 2022-08-06T05:01:20+00:00 Shpëtim Madani <p><em>This paper seeks to analyze the prose of Jewish-American writer Bernard Malamud (1914-1986) from a perspective of Martin Buber’s I-You philosophy, which aims toward a transition from I-It to I-You. The I-It connection entails a subject-to-object connection with the world, whereas I-You refers to a subject-to-subject relationship with another human being, including an animal or inanimate object. This sort of relation entails responsibility and is best manifested through love. The study sheds light on the transformation of the Malamudian hero from an egotistical individual who first treats others as merely objects to regarding them as equally important human beings. This moral evolution occurs in the mode of Buberian I-You philosophy. This transition whereby both participating entities are&nbsp; transformed does not occur easily because the protagonist’s past is considerably dark and he is initially distrustful of the world. This way, on his road to redemption the male character is generally encouraged and guided by the female counterpart, serving as an alter ego that reminds him of his responsibility and humanism as a human being. The analysis begins with a short introduction into Buber’s philosophical ideas, which are then illustrated through Malamud’s major works.&nbsp;&nbsp; </em></p> 2022-08-06T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022
