In the city of Lubumbashi, market gardening activities are an important source of income for the people involved. Thus, in a general way, this work consists in analyzing the cultivation techniques by the SEPO approach in the market gardening production in Lubumbashi, specifically, this work consists in describing the socioeconomic profile of the producers; identifying the typology of the production factors, presenting the matrix of the SEPO approach. To achieve this, a survey was conducted among 61 market gardeners. These included Kalubwe (15), Katuba (15), Tingi-Tingi (15) and Mukoma (16). The data were entered in Excel and the statistical processing was done using Excel and mini tab 16. The TUKEY test was used to compare the different means of the observed parameters. After this analysis, it was found that the analysis of the SEPO matrix indicates that the crop association technique is more used by market gardeners with a score of 54 or 46.2% of success factor in all sites (Mukoma, Tingi Tingi - Kalubwe), followed by the crop rotation (Katuba). This result shows that the SEPO is a very capital approach to measure the experience on the evolution in an income generating activity several failures and obstacles in the use or practice of certain technique and does not allow an 80% evolution of the activity.

Although mobile paylater technology is on the rise, few studies have covered its adoption. This study explores the factor contributing toward the usage of mobile paylater. Although technology acceptance model (TAM) have been used for a wide range of products, it hasn't been used for mobile paylater, an emerging financial technology. Self report questionnaire was distributed to non users. Perceived ease of use, perceived usefulness, and subjective norm was found to affect intention to use. While the subjective norm itself was affected by perceived ease of use and perceived usefulness. This research can be used as a reference either for academics or industry use, regarding people's intention to use mobile paylater which might get more relevant as the industry is growing.

Khadija Rabtaoui, Badreddine Elmejhed, Fouzia Kzaiber, Wafa Terouzi
The present study is based on the valorization of Moroccan sweet potato for flour production using the hot air drying process. The choice of this food is justified by its availability on the market, its consumption and its nutritional value.
The objective of this work is to optimize the factors that affect the drying of sweet potato. The study by complete design of experiment has been conducted. After an adequate choice of two factors at two levels, the temperature (55°C ; 70°C) and the thickness of the dried pieces (0.5cm ; 1.5cm), four experiments led to a mathematical model linking the responses (maximisation of yield and minimisation of time and water content) to the factors and allowing a good control of the drying process.

Sunil Kumar R and Sumitha R
Higher educational institutions are exploring ways towards having their faculties experience flourishing which will indirectly lead to higher level of student engagement. Faculty experiencing flourishing and student engagement is a key factor in academic achievement and degree completion, though there is much debate about the operationalisation and dimensionality of this constructs. Research indicates that there is not much literature available in educational domain in terms of measuring „flourishing‟ and its influence on academic engagement and faculty productivity. However, literature also indicates that positivity experienced by the faculty in the workplace enhance better student engagement. The conceptual paper adopted descriptive methodology to understand and explore the previous research works that enables student-faculty engagement leading to higher level of productivity and flourishing at higher education. The conceptual paper highlights the importance of highlighting the perspective of faculty-student engagement, faculty productivity and faculty flourishing, apart from its theoretical and practical implications.
