The main features of online brand communities, value co-creation, and motivators for participating in online brand communities (Heinonen and Halonen, 2007; Kozinets, 2010; Muniz and O’Guinn, 2001; Schau et al., 2009) are the key factors that jointly – realized in various combinations – characterize collective value creation and empowerment in an online brand community.The collective value creation and empowerment in the online brand community may occur when its members have a sense of belonging, they create value together, and they have similar motives.A brand community can be formed by any group of people who share a common interest in a specific brand and who create a parallel social universe rife with its own myths, values, rituals, v...

Furthermore, in a classical brand community, most activities often focus on the brand, and the community is ‘based on a structured set of social relationships among admirers of a brand’ (Muniz and O’Guinn, 2001, p.412).Since the last decade, brand community has been a central topic of branding research, and marketers have increasingly focused on building, managing, and maintaining brand communities (Muniz and O’Guinn 2001; McAlexander et al., 2002).According to Muniz and O’Guinn (2001), brand communities directly affect all four of these components of brand equity, namely perceived quality, brand loyalty, brand awareness, and brand associations (Aaker, 1991)...

In this sense, the brand gathers passionate consumers in a structured social relationship, binding members together through a shared social and interpersonal experience (Cova 1997, Muniz and O’Guinn 2001).In this view, we can see that though their connection is also built in a similar way of gathering people together, the main bond of brand tribe is shared consumption while subculture’s main bond can be everything.In this condition, building a long term relationship with tribal members requires that consider the influence of social identity and social context on the formation of loyalty.(1995), this kind of loyalty is referred to “bonded loyalty”.Then the understanding of defined values of social dynamic of tribes and a specific set of “...

Throughout The Waste Land, Eliot strengthens this image of a corrupted society which stands in dire need of a romantic purging, until he ends it with the Fisher-King’s statement which D.C. Fowler refers to as “a charm, the purpose of which is to break the spell of the waste land.” (Fowler 35) The titular “waste land” serves as a metaphor for the corruption of the society.In The Waste Land, the character of Tiresias serves as the all enveloping observer to the decline and possible redemption of society.Despite the unquestioned influence of The Waste Land, few poems have inspired as much controversy.Within the context of The Waste Land, Tiresias serves as both the motivation, and the primary narrative voice.In his notes to The Waste Land E...

Eliot’s The Waste Land qualifies the popularly conceived notions around Modernism and Classicism.The announcement of peace after internalizing the ideal of “Give, Sacrifice, Control” in The Waste Land is an achievement of Eliot’s conscious consolidation of theoretical appraisals in his essays and poetic experiments.The recurrent chant of ‘Datta’, ‘Dayadhvan’, ‘Damyata’ reach a crescendo and echo Eliot’s modernist endeavour to find a meaningful solution to the misleading nihilism misread by many as permeated in the fabric of The Waste Land.He once remarked, “The ideal medium for poetry, to my mind, and the most direct means of social ‘usefulness’ for poetry, is the theatre.” An extremely cautious architect of various literary genres that ...

Land pollution is a major global health concern, and occurs when humans fail to manage their waste appropriately and leave it to contaminate the land.The excess chemicals leave waste residue in the land and pollute it.Waste from human activity is, however, the most common cause of pollution.This results in a greater amount of industrial waste which must be disposed of.Waste causing pollution is caused by careless disposal of things that are thrown away including littering, and failure to recycle.Over time, land pollution degrades the quality of not only the land in an area where waste is present, but also the quality of things growing in that land.

Recycle waste materials.The best way to avoid land conversion is to make efficient use of the available land.Land Conversion is the process whereby a piece of land is converted from its indigenous form to a form used for either agriculture or infrastructure.Misuse of Land mainly refers to felling of trees to clear land for agriculture, as well as processes like desertification and land conversion.Soil pollution is again another cause of land pollution that affects not only the land, but also a lot of other things such as forest cover of a region, productivity of land in terms of agriculture, grazing etc.

The results indicate that PNN is a reliable method for porosity estimation.The training and validation correlation coefficient between predicted porosity and actual porosity could reach 0.915 and 0.881, respectively.PNN is a four-layer feed-forward network, consisting of an input layer, a pattern layer, a summation layer and an output layer (Muniz et al., 2010).The PNN does not require an iterative learning process, which can manage magnitudes of training data faster than other Artificial Neural Network architectures (Muniz et al., 2010).At the porosity estimation stage, a PNN model has been established and trained.
