Keywords: Indigenous nature; Indigenous peoples; Indigenous originality; Indigenous tradition; Indigenous knowledge.
This article studies the ecological spirituality of the Sakha people in the context of an indigenous approach. The indigenous methodology study is still at the stage of research and development of the rationale behind it and is not completely recognized by the domestic academic community. The new indigenous methodology development becomes actual since the previous studies had a political background associated with the colonization of the indigenous people and their territories. The growing need for decolonization requires the development of a critically re-considered methodology and new ethno cultural approaches revised from the ethical perspective to study the indigenous peoples. The comparison also consider the experience of the historical development of the Russian peoples and ethnic groups, during the colonial of the pre-revolutionary time, and the process of their unification into a single federal state and a colonial period in the pre-revolutionary time. The research method includes a comparative analysis of the current status of Russian and foreign studies of the indigenous methodology problems. The ecological spirituality of the Sakha people is based on the potential of the primordially indigenous methodology considered through the trinity of the ecology of the inner world as well as the spiritual and cosmic essence of its nature: the ecology of nature, man and soul. Scientific studies describe the concepts of research categories in a structural order, ranging from ethno-pedagogy to ecological spirituality of the Sakha people. An indigenous approach (the inside approach) is based on the original knowledge of indigenous researchers, with consideration through the prism of the natural ethno-cultural identity of peoples in the process of active national and spiritual revival of the Sakha culture, inspired by the ecological spirituality of the Yakut heroic epos Olonkho and the Teachings of Aiyy ethno cultural education, the creation of a space for scientific interpretation and the demand for the origination of ecological spirituality in the modern technocratic world.

Modern agriculture aims at product quantity and quality increase, with cost reduction, achievable through technology development, machinery, and creation of modern intelligent decision support systems aimed at technological process synthesis based on the economic, human, technical and technological resources. The development of new models and methods capable of solving the problems of structural and parametric synthesis will increase the speed without resorting to significant economic costs associated with computing device productive capacity increase. This paper uses three modern trends: simulation modeling, evolutionary methods and Petri net theory (allowing combining all trends by one mathematical apparatus that supports both software and hardware implementations). The genetic algorithm is adapted using embedded Petri nets and expert knowledge. To synthesize technological process for winter wheat cultivation, it proposes to use the common IDEF3 methodology, making it possible to identify the branch points. This study creates a unified model that greatly simplifies the process of software and hardware implementation of an intelligent decision support system. The simulation of technological process models is obtained as a result of intellectual synthesis using PIPE4 open software. After the computational experiment, the obtained models for winter wheat growing correspond to a given criterion of economic benefits for conventional agricultural enterprises.

Keywords: Participative leadership; PDM; TRS;TRF; Transactional Leadership; Transformational Leadership; Inspirational motivation; Rewards-punishment.
Participative decision making (PDM) is characterized with many human-oriented attributes, however, on top of it, is the sharing of decision making by the leader with the related officers/workers, so that the concerns of all employees are taken into account at the time of decision making. It injects the feeling of ownership among co-workers, which is, obviously, very motivating. PDM seems more connected with the transformational leadership style (TRF) as compared to a transactional mode. Transactional leadership style (TRS) refers to a leader who prefers going by the book and using rewards and punishments and management by exception (active and passive). TRF leaders rather use themselves as a role model and focus on motivation, employee's creativity, and individual contributions. Thus, it is hypothesized that PDM is positively linked with TRF, while negatively related to TRS. The model was tested in the field survey and statistical tools were used to analyze the data regarding the hypotheses of the model.

One of the reasons for the high rate of failure of strategic planning in organizations is an overemphasis on one factor and the lack of full attention to other organizational factors. Meanwhile, an assessment of the readiness of the organization for the convergence of information technology and business strategy should be considered as the starting point and start of the activity of comprehensive IT plans. The purpose of this study is to examine business strategy and earning management in order to achieve IT management in companies admitted to Tehran Stock Exchange during the years 2012 to 2016. For this purpose, a sample of 68 firms was selected by systematic knockout. In this research, earnings management is based on the modified Jones model and, finally, the outcome of the study is to examine the effect of variables on the macroeconomic level with the aim of achieving strategic IT management. The result of the research suggests a reverse and significant relationship between business strategy and earnings management in order to achieve IT management.

The traffic engineering measures for the speed limit in the residential area not only helps with road accident mitigation but also creates a pleasant environment for the residential areas and expands the space for pedestrians. The extensive study of numerous the speed limit measurements of other countries especially in Europe shows that it is important to incorporate other measurements to the existing laws to effectively enforce the speed limit in the residential area. The use of a decision-making support tool to set appropriate speed could lead to further analysis to improve the assessment of the areas that need an appropriate speed limit. The decision tree related theory is used for specific decision tree analysis. Decision tree gives an effective decision structure where the decision and consequence are placed together. In this regard, the manual for the speed limit in the urban and municipality has been compiled by the World Health Organization and Thai Road Foundation by decision-making factors. The purpose of the manual is to ensure the same practice standard throughout Thailand. The development of this assessment tool is the creation of relationship according to the above factors to facilitate decision making and to communicate the involved officers with different knowledge and experience to make decisions with unity.
