Job burnout and turnover intention among nurses in China: the mediating effects of positive emotion

mental resources. 11 “Positive emotions” is a category of positive psychology. It refers to an individual’s subjective experience and indicates a temporary or persistently positive emotional state. It can increase psychological flexibility and help a person maintain good mental health. Previous literature has reported that positive emotions are significantly, negative correlated with burnout, 12 possibly reducing burnout and serving as the controlling factor in burnout. Thus, we suggest that positive emotions mediate the relationship between burnout and turnover

Moving Picture, Lying Image: Unreliable Cinematic Narratives


By coining the term “unreliable narrator” Wayne Booth hypothesized another agent in his model besides the author, the implicit author, to explain the double coding of narratives where a distorted view of reality and the exposure of this distortion are presented simultaneously. The article deals with the applicability of the concept in visual narratives. Since unreliability is traditionally considered to be intertwined with first person narratives, it works through subjective mediators. According to scholarly literature on the subject, the narrator has to be strongly characterized, or in other words, anthropomorphized. In the case of film, the main problem is that the narrator is either missing or the narration cannot be attributed entirely to them. There is a medial rupture where the apparatus mediates the story instead of a character’s oral or written discourse. The present paper focuses on some important but overlooked questions about the nature of cinematic storytelling through a re-examination of |the lying flashback in Alfred Hitchcock's Stage Fright. Can a character-narrator control the images the viewer sees? How can the filmic image still be unreliable without having an anthropomorphic narrator? How useful is the term focalization when we are dealing with embedded character-narratives in film?

Influence of Goal Contents on Exercise Addiction: Analysing the Mediating Effect of Passion for Exercise

et al., 2009 ). Indeed, Sebire et al. (2009) have shown that the way in which exercise is internalised into a person’s identity can be a mediator in this relationship. A construct which reflects the way a person internalizes the value attributed to a particular activity and thus submits to it, is that of passion ( Parastatidou et al., 2014 ). Dualistic Model of Passion The SDT suggests that people naturally orientate themselves towards activities that satisfy their needs (e.g. their relationships with other people, autonomy and competence), and that these
