The article presents issues associated with the style of management applied in scientific organizations in the context of sentiments and attitudes of employees. Attention is drawn particularly to the relations between the style of management perceived by employees and the level of their perceived contentedness and the perceived level of satisfaction, as well as between the perceived style of management and attitude reflecting their readiness to recommend an organization as an employer. The application of the method of statistical analysis, namely, the analysis of correspondence allowed drawing the conclusion that there are statistically important relations between the variables. These relations are comparably strongest in case of the perceived style of management and the level of satisfaction. Thus, it can be concluded that applying democratic style to employees favours stimulating their satisfaction and contentedness and at the same time contributes to assuming an open attitude characterized by the readiness to recommend an organization as a workplace and thus co-create its positive image.
The paper examines the politics of security deployment by the Federal Government of Nigeria to Jos, metropolis. A cross-sectional study was conducted and Public Opinion Theory adopted. Methodologically, mixed methods of data collection were conducted that involved the administration of 377 questionnaires to adult respondents, six In-Depth Interviews with religious and community leaders while three Key Informant Interviews with security personnel working with Special Task Force. The survey reveals that, the deployment of Mobile Police from 2001-2010 and the formation of Special Task Force in 2010 has generated mixed reactions and divergent perceptions among the residents of Jos metropolis. Majority of the ethnic groups that are predominantly Christians were more contented with the deployment of the Mobile Police whereas ethnic groups that are dominantly Muslims questioned the neutrality, capability, performance and strength of the Nigerian Police Force in managing the crises. The study recommends that, security personnel should display high degree of neutrality in order to earn the confidence of the residents and change their perceptions.

are only two groups of people, one is extremely contented and the
other is adequately contented, it is plausible to think that any neces-
sary taxation should be progressive and that any additional benefits
that become available should go to the least contented rather than the
most contented. (For an interesting discussion of how sufficientar-

wishes and forces onto nature, I do that also with the way that such wishes and
forces make me feel, that is, I project my pride, my courage, my tenacity, my
agility, my self-assurance, my calm self-contentedness. Only in that way my
empathy with nature may really become an esthetic empathy.”7

The alternative for opera managers would be to hire young singers,
well chosen according to vocal as well as acting requirements, and to
offer to the club of Gruberovian fans only extraordinary concerts with
the adored diva. The opera would cost less, tickets would be less
expensive and thus a
