Abstract:Brands are identifiable attributes, physical marks, emotional markers and cognitive triggers used to create a differentiated promise of future experiences based on prior offers of value through memories of prior product experience, or assumptions of future experiences based on the reputation of the product, provider or service. Personal branding is the process whereby people and their careers are marked as brands and it differs from reputation management and impression management with its purpose. It is directly intended to create an asset and brand equity that pertains to a particular person or individual. Usually branding efforts require extensive financial support for promotion to create brand awareness and afterwards brand loyalty. Social media, with its ideological and technological structure, gives the opportunity to the people to promote themselves as brands in a relatively cheap and efficient manner. The most important thing to be able to shape the corporate brand is to align your vision and values with the vision of the company. To be able to use your personal brand, you need to know who you are and what you hold to be true. It is important that in what extent the leader can use the personal brand to shape the corporate brand will be dependent of different positions and different companies. However, we believe that leaders within every sector have more or less ability to use their personal brand to shape the corporate brand.

Abstract: One of the problems discussed in the social and economic history of countries is the conditions of roads, highways, and commercial routes. The importance of roads and transit routes can be evidently witnessed in Man’s social life. Undoubtedly, they play a determining role in commercial, scientific, and cultural exchanges. During the Safavid Era, several factors affected the conditions of transit routes and, as a result, the cities along these routes underwent certain changes. One of the cities that played an influential role in the trade relationships of this time was Qazvin. Since it was the capital of the Safavid Kingdom, the routes leading to it enjoyed great security, and the city itself had turned into the trade center of the country. While exploring the features of trade routes and the security dominating them, this paper aims to explain the role of important highways in the economic and social development, expansion, dynamism, and flourishing of cities, particularly Qazvin, which experienced such changes until the end of the Safavid Era.

Abstract: The principle objective of this paper is to present the results of a literature review over impact of Globalization on women’s movements. Traditionalism & patriarchal characteristic of conservative societies and restrictive gender policies of Islamic countries are the main obstacles to feminism. This paper evaluates local, national and global feminism developments and responses to them or as Eschle 2001: says to “Feminist interventions that affect the parameters and direction of globalization processes “. Current finding in this literature shows that globalization process increases women’s consciousness on many eras especially on gender related issues and their interest in other nations’ feministic struggles and achievements. Global Media enables them to communicate their Ideas, values, believes, feministic goals. It also empowers women to evaluate their situations by compressing & contrasting it with other county’s cultural values and norms. Globalization made women to realize that, despite having different ethical, religious, linguistic and cultural background they share similar interests. These new finding compelled activists to find common grounds to evaluate their shared concerns and objectives. The study of women’s movement is incomplete without taking global factors in to account. This paper reviews briefly the interplay between local and global factors in shaping the course of women's movements and feminism in particularly conservative nations like as Saudi- Arabia. These countries are threatened by the impact of globalization on their ardent pious Muslim women loyal to Islamism and the ways it shapes public gender views and men’s traditional perceptions of women. NGO’s have been playing great role in promoting feministic ideals. Despite being threatened by anti-feminist groups, they continued working on programs aimed to increase women’s resistance to discrimination and bias behaviors of male authorities. This paper shoes that, feminism is not just western concept and Islamic societies comprised of non-Arab nations clam that, Islamic feminism is competitive to secular feminism. However, Islamic Family Protection Laws based on Sharia is unlikely to be convinced of this claim. There have been a number of earlier competitive studies on this topic, which include highly recognized stimulating books and article such as, Jaggar, “Globalizing Feminist Ethics,”1998. Catherine Eschle, “Global democracy, Social movements, and Feminism,” 2001. Eisenstein, Zillah. "Women's Publics and the Search for New Democracies. Nayereh Tohidi. "Introduction." Globalization, Gender, and Religion: a book by Shirin Ahmadniya ‘Yek Didgahe Jamea Shenasi’ ( A Societal Perspective) ( In Parisian ). To write an article on these kinds of topics is not difficult for someone like me, who live in Iran. All you need to observe and document what you see. That is the first-hand information which I used to right this essey. In conclusion, I propose a future research agenda to study how women of the undemocratic nations and Islamic countries could benefit from impact of globalization and Social Media help to reinvent and improve the way they pursue their feministic objectives.

Abstract: Nowadays, it is believed that innovation can be managed. Many factors affect innovation. An efficient national innovation system should be established to convert innovation on these inputs to appropriate innovation outputs. Interactions, culture, habits and relationships of the actors have a significant latent impact on the effectiveness of investment on inputs. However, in an economic system based on natural resources such as oil-based economies, investment on these input lacks proper efficiency and effectiveness. One of the important inputs is "human capital". It was found that in oil-based economies with public sector governance where investment on human factors and research and development is done by the public sector and supply impact, investment on human capital does not lead to innovation and wealth. To investigate this issue, the annual report of "Global Innovation Index" was used. In addition, an example of Iran's oil industry was described to show how governance, prioritizing and providing financial and non-financial resources by the public sector put innovative activities away of their objectives and markets.
