Abstract

Day by day correspondence is encouraged by computerized advancements through Web locales and web based life, and got to by means of PCs and cell phones (Meeker, Devitt, and Wu, 2009). The PC has changed the manner in which we live, work and play” (Lunenfeld, 2011, p. 143). Specialized gadgets are driving the advancement of innovation guidelines that are ground-breaking for purchasers, yet much progressively incredible and productive for the organizations that control them. A fight proceeds for authority over the manner in which we get to data online by means of Web programs on PCs and cell phones. Internet browsers have been assuming a key job in electronic business and electronic trade. They have extraordinary usefulness that connect a huge number of web clients to the universe of wide the internet. In the event that there were no internet browsers today; there would not be web based business and all the more for the most part there would not be e-business in the good judgment. Along these lines, it isn’t too amazing that the challenge among different internet browsers has been anxious in the course of the most recent ten years. Web innovation is one the very pinnacle of developments of our time and has contributed essentially in dispersing and gathering information and data. Viability and proficiency of the procedure relies upon the presentation of the internet browser. Google Chrome is the pioneer of the serious program showcase with Mozilla Firefox as its most grounded rival, and obviously Internet Explorer which has been and is increasing a significant degree of ubiquity among web clients. Picking the superlative internet browser is a troublesome errand because of the extensively huge determination of program projects and absence of substantial examination information. This paper depicts and looks at imperative highlights of Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox, which speak to over 15% of the all programs advertise. The presentation of every program is assessed dependent on the general highlights, working framework support, program highlights, convention backing and language support. The paper is finished up with solid comments dependent on the examination.

Question of The Gender Wage Gap: Trends Across The World Özgür Önday

Question of The Gender Wage Gap: Trends Across The World

Author (s)

Özgür Önday

Abstract

The gender pay gap is about gender representation in roles that pay differently, and is about gender portrayal in jobs that pay in an unexpected way, and is not quite the same as equivalent compensation concerns. The gender pay gap is determined by taking the normal compensation for all females in an association, paying little mind to job or duties, and contrasting that with the normal pay for all guys in a similar association, paying little heed to job or obligations. The distinction in these two normal sums is the ” gender pay gap.” Paying ladies not as much as men for a similar activity, absolutely by virtue of their gender, is unlawful and is banned by correspondence enactment. It alludes to the gap between what is earned on normal by ladies and men dependent on normal gross hourly income of every single paid representative – not simply people doing likewise work, or with a similar encounter or working example. It doesn’t demonstrate or distinguish separation or inclination or even a nonattendance of equivalent compensation for equivalent worth work. The next section reviews the theoretical and empirical literature analyzing gender wage differences. Section III describes the trends in gender wage gaps across countries and regions in this date. The fourth section presents how to close gender pay gap. The final section concludes with some thoughts on policy implications.

Key words: Gender Wage Gap, Equal Pay, Value of Work, Gender Pay Gap, Legislations, Government Authorities.

Abstract

This project discusses and Implements in detail the purpose, designing and functioning of a automatic vehicle tracking and traffic accident monitoring system in public transport. The number of vehicles on the road globally is expected to increase rapidly. Therefore, the development of vehicle tracking system using the Global Positioning System (GPS) and Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM) modem is undertaken with the aim of enabling to minimize traffic accident and users to locate their vehicles and to keep the users from driving over speed with ease and in a convenient manner. The system will provide to the administrator with the capability to track vehicle remotely through the mobile network and at what speed the vehicle is running. Specifically, implementation of this project more focus on the server based vehicle tracking in public transport and company vehicles in case of traffic accident prevention. The system will generate the location of the vehicle and at what speed the vehicle is moving. The system will utilize GPS to obtain a vehicle’s coordinate and the time and transmit it using GSM modem to the central server through the mobile network by SMS. The main hardware components of the system are Robomart GPS receiver module, Robomart GSM module and AVR Atmega16 microcontroller. The developed vehicle tracking system demonstrates the feasibility of near real-time tracking of vehicles and improved customizability, global operability and costly when compared to existing solutions.

Life Imprisonment under International Criminal Law: A Human Rights Approach Hossain Mohammad Younus Sirazi

     Life Imprisonment under International Criminal Law: A Human Rights Approach

Author (s)

Hossain Mohammad Younus Sirazi

Abstract

Unsurprisingly, life imprisonment is a maximum penalty under international criminal law, where the position of death penalty throughout the world tends to be mostly abolished owing to the stance of human rights jurisprudence. Likewise, through the lenses of a human rights approach, if life imprisonment is critically looked, it raises serious concern though the imposition of such sentence is not directly prohibited. This is because the inherent spirit of international human rights norms, this paper argues, that reveals the incompatibility of such sentence with human dignity, right not to be subjected to cruel, inhuman or degrading punishment as well as right to rehabilitation and hope for release of the offenders, even the most heinous criminals, and also with the principle of proportionality as well as legal certainty. This paper endeavors to revisit the implications of such a human rights approach in the infliction of life imprisonment by rendering a realistic release mechanism for lifers by international criminal tribunals. This paper also tries to argue that retribution and deterrence in sentencing have been unduly emphasized proffering no clear justifications for inflicting such sentence. Therefore, this paper stresses to be adopted a more focused and cautious human rights approach to life imprisonment under international criminal law because if such approach would be emphatically embraced, it would have also served rehabilitative purpose of sentencing jurisprudence and rendered a dynamic and early release mechanism for lifers.

Key words: Life imprisonment, Sentencing jurisprudence, Human rights approach, International criminal courts and tribunals, A dynamic and early release mechanism.

Author (s)

Sarah Jannat Namakula, Alain Vilard Ndi Isoh, Engotoit Benard, & Abdallah Ziraba

Abstract

The advents of the internet and e-commerce have transformed the pattern of purchase of goods and services. Online customers find online shopping very convenient, flexible, time saving, offering a wide variety of selection, cheaper products and provide the possibility to make private purchases easier. Despite the numerous benefits of online purchasing platforms, the adoption rate is low in Uganda. This study aimed at modeling a framework on determinants of customers’ intentions to purchase online in the case of Kampala Uganda. The philosophical underpins were both positivism epistemology and objectivism ontology. Data was sourced using structured questions from a sample of ninety-seven (97) online customers’ in Kampala. The analysis was concluded using Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) and the findings revealed that; Facilitating Conditions (FC), Service Quality (SQ) and Customers’ Attitudes (A) have positive significant impacts on online purchase intention whereas, there was insignificant statistical evidence to suggest that System Quality (SQ) influences the intention to purchase online. This study therefore recommends managers of online businesses to consider Service Quality (SeQ), Facilitating Conditions (FC) and Customers Attitudes (A) as critical determinants to improve online sales. Indicators such as: timely deliveries, product conformability and prompt feedback are drivers to online purchase intentions. This study provides emerging views essential in managing relationships between businesses and customers with the intention to model successful e-business strategies. This research thus provides a useful insight to parties including e-business practitioners, government and customers on the role of e-commerce adoption in Uganda.

     The Financial Performance Analysis of Islamic Vs Conventional Banks: An Empirical study on Bangladesh

Author (s)

Mohotarema Rashid

Abstract

This paper focuses on the comprehensive comparison about the financial performance of conventional and non conventional banks of Bangladesh. The study shows that in spite of a few exceptions in general conventional overall performance was better than the non conventional banks. I have chosen five Islamic banks and five Conventional Banks & analyze different data to find out the effect of CAMEL Factors on Return on Equity. Here I have used different dependent variables to analyze the impact of each variable on Return on Equity. The variables are Capital Adequacy, Asset Quality, Management Quality, Earnings & Liquidity The regression model indicates that Capital adequacy, Asset Quality, have significant negative impact on Return on Equity for conventional bank. This model also indicates Management Quality & Earnings Quality and Liquidity are positively related to Return on Equity and this variable has also significant impact on Return on Equity. I have used this same model for non conventional banks and found that Capital adequacy, Asset Quality and Earnings and Liquidity have negative insignificant impact on Return on Equity & only Management Quality has negative insignificant impact on return on asset. Then In my study I have used descriptive statistics to compare between these two banking system in terms of CAMEL factors. I have found that conventional bank dominates non conventional bank in terms of Capital Adequacy, Asset Quality, Earnings, whereas non conventional bank dominates conventional banks in terms of Management Quality and Liquidity.

Author (s)

Md. Mehedi Hasan

Abstract

This study focuses mainly on the use of different types of assessment and feedback towards the study of English language at graduation level in Bangladesh. Assessment and feedback are an important part of effective learning. Assessment should also be incorporated in the teaching and learning process. The current tendency in the Bangladeshi education system, assessment and feedback are largely focused on pedagogic characteristics, ignoring those that are relevant to the curriculum. The quantitative method has been used to collect data and includes students’ perceptions, ideas, and behaviors. This research paper was developed with a questionnaire including teachers and students. From the data, the researcher finds that students face a lot of difficulty in getting the actual assessment and feedback. In most cases, students receive only verbal feedback from teachers. In addition, teachers are more interested in providing written feedback. This study also aims to provide suggestions for overcoming barriers to exam performance and feedback in teaching English language at the undergraduate level in Bangladesh.

Ethical Leadership and Knowledge Management Behaviors: Role of Organizational Citizenship Behavior and Procedural Justice Khola Masood

Ethical Leadership and Knowledge Management Behaviors: Role of Organizational Citizenship Behavior and Procedural Justice

Author (s)

Khola Masood

Abstract

A growing body of literature is focused on analyzing the impact of leadership styles on various organizational behaviors. Although in knowledge management literature studies have shown a statistically significant impact of any leadership style on knowledge sharing but the literature on hiding is still scarce. This study is an attempt to bridge this gap in literature by focusing on ethical leadership and the impact it has on the knowledge sharing and knowledge hiding of the employees. Organizational citizenship behavior is included as mediator in the study as it is observed from past literature that employees like to emulate the behavior of their supervisor. The model of the research study also suggests for the moderation effects of procedural justice. Ethicality of the leader results in higher organizational citizenship behavior which in turn enhances the knowledge sharing and hinders the knowledge hiding behavior of the employees. It was also found that procedural justice moderates the relationship.

Key words: Ethical leadership, knowledge hiding, knowledge sharing, organizational citizenship behavior, procedural justice.

Author (s)

Mulele Simasiku

Abstract

This paper aims to explore and elaborate on Zambian work values, of which a mixture in traditional and western values has been the focal point of the daily life of Zambians. This paper will use qualitative research methods and empirical observations from participants to shade more light on Zambian work values. This paper also aims to highlight on the intrinsic and extrinsic values that encompass work values. Twenty Zambian employees at different companies in different sectors were interviewed to build findings on this construct. Questions on intrinsic work values and extrinsic work values were asked to them in interview style for them to shade more light to which category they thought they inclined to and their justification of such a way of being. After which they were administered a work value questionnaire, for more brief and confined answers. Both the questionnaires and the data from the interview responses were used to draw conclusions.

Key words: Work values, culture, intrinsic, extrinsic, generations.

Abstract

The seam strength and seam efficiency of 2/1 twill woven fabric has been investigated all through the research where a variety of 20/2, 27, 30, 40, 40/1, 40/2 and 40/3 thread count were applied individually for superimposed, lapped and bound seam respectively. After preparation, each of the samples, brought into the tensile strength test and the breaking strength and efficiency were measured. For each case, seam strength increased with the increase of SPI at a constant thread count. The lowest seam strength and efficiency were achieved for samples sewed with 27Tex sewing thread, and the maximum value was achieved for samples which were stitched by 40/3 count.

Key words: Stitch density, thread count, 2/1 twill fabric, strength and efficiency.

Abstract

Humans are exposed to chromium ions from leather materials owing to everyday contact with different need based activities. The concern is that Cr (VI) is extremely toxic and may cause contact allergic dermatitis on the skin and may also be a trigger for a plethora of diseases, hence it is essential to monitor the presence of chromium as Cr (VI). For the determination of levels of chromium (VI) the shaving dust samples from four different tanneries and chrome liquor, and wet blue leather trimmings from three different tanneries were collected.  The fat content was determined in collected shaving dust and wet blue trimmings with the aid of Soxhlet extraction method using petroleum ether- ethanol solvent. Then the extraction of Cr (VI) from the samples was done following the standard procedure of society for Leather Chemistry with some modification. Afterwards, UV- visible spectrophotometric determination of Cr (VI) was carried out through the complex formation with 1, 5-diphenylcarbazide (DPC).  The weight percentages of fat content were found to be in the range of 2.98-3.71. Analytical grade potassium-dichromate reagent was used as a standard source of Cr (VI) in calibration process. Among the collected four shaving dust samples in three samples were found to contain Cr (VI) in the range of 1.96-2.19 mg/kg. In three analyzed wet blue trimmings samples the Cr (VI) was found to be from 1.59 to 1.86 mg/L.   The amount of hexavalent chromium was found 1.27 mg/L in one chrome liquor sample out of three samples.

Analysis of Fiscal Policy and Fertility in Provincial Government of Indonesia Oktarini Khamilah Siregar

Analysis of Fiscal Policy and Fertility in Provincial Government of Indonesia

Author (s)

Oktarini Khamilah Siregar

Abstract

This research aims to analyze whether fiscal policy affects the fertility of the Provincial Government Indonesia using panel data with time series from 2007 to 2017, a cross-section of 33 Provincial governments in Indonesia. Fertility is measured using Total Fertility Rate (TFR) and Birth Rate. Local revenue, regional expenditure, and regional debt do not affect TFR but the regional deficit negatively does. Regarding the birth rate, regional income and deficits have a positive effect, regional expenditure has a negative effect, but regional debt does not affect birth rates in 33 provincial governments in Indonesia. The equivalent ricardien theory does not apply to this study because households do not assist provincial government policies caused by high fertility. As a result, national TFR is not achieved and will affect sustainable fiscal deficits.

Key words: Total Fertility Rate, Birth Rate, Local Revenue, Regional Expenditure, Regional Debt dan Regional Deficit.

Abstract

To address the problems of large overhead and inaccurate judgment for selfish node of the existing selfish node detecting algorithm in opportunistic networks, a high-efficiency and low-overhead algorithm to detect the selfish node HLSND algorithm is proposed. The algorithm combines the SV list interactive information and attributes of the message forwarded by encounter node to judge its selfishness. According to the message attributes forwarded by the node, it can be judged whether it has the selfish behavior of forged the message in SV list. The RSSI technique is used to measure the distance of the nodes to improve the judgment accuracy of self – interest behavior. At the same time, information of selfish node is carried when forward other message to reduce the system overhead. The simulation results show that the HLSND detection algorithm can effectively improve the throughput and message delivery rate in the network and reduce the energy consumption and time delay of the system.

Key words: opportunistic networks; Probabilistic Routing; selfish node; summery vector; HLSND Algorithm.

A Case of A Government-Mandated Online Transaction Standard Acting As A Technical Barrier To Trade in South Korea Nigel Callinan

A Case of A Government-Mandated Online Transaction Standard Acting As A Technical Barrier To Trade in South Korea

Author (s)

Nigel Callinan

Abstract

Technical Barriers to Trade can form formidable hurdles for Organizations seeking to sell products and provide services to specific countries. These barriers are frequently erected based on government-mandated standards. This paper discusses the use of Online Transaction Standards in South Korea and explores the effect the Standards had on competition and diversity when it came to the availability of service providers for the country’s domestic market.  The paper concludes that a small number of companies benefitted from the unique business ecosystem set up within an effectively closed market and this reliance on this ecosystem may have been a problem for Korean companies when trying to expand overseas.

Abstract

Four different fish species such as Climbing perch (Anabas testudineus), Spotted snakehead (Channa punctatus), Stinging catfish (Heteropneustes fossilis) and Tangra (Batasio tengana) were exposed to various concentrations of Diazinon (Sabion 60 EC) to investigate the toxic level of Diazinon and  mortality rate  of fish species. The various concentrations in which the fish species were exposed as 100, 200, 300 and 400 ppb including a control. The median lethal concentration (LC50) values of Diazinon (Sabion 60 EC) on Climbing perch, Spotted snakehead, Stinging catfish and Tangra were 167.45, 182.90, 217.59 and 190.29 ppb respectively for 96 hours of exposure. Remarkable behavioral abnormalities were found during the exposure. The study was also undertaken to investigate and to compare the percentages of protein and fat content of the fish species before and after application of pesticide. Some water quality parameters such as temperature, pH, dissolved oxygen, total dissolved solids and electrical conductivity were also measured during the experiments. In this experiment the pH value was in the range of  6.87-7.92 and temperature was in range of 26 to 29 ℃ in presence of pesticide. Fish species showed various physiological and behavioural alterations as rapid opercular movement, erratic swimming, gulping, mucus secretion in response to various concentrations of pesticide. These alterations were more in higher concentrations. The protein and fat percentages of the fish species were reduced after exposure of pesticide during this experiment.

Abstract

Human capacity development is a vital predictor of workers’ performance. Though limited scholarly attention has been devoted to this subject within the context of Cameroon, this study is geared towards modelling a sustainable framework on human capacity development of selected commercial banks in Cameroon. The research is qualitative case study design supported by the philosophies of subjectivism ontology and interpretivism epistemology covering ten (10) focus group involving thirty (30) employees sampled purposively from five commercial banking institutions in Cameroon. Data was sourced via in-depth-interviews and analysed using grounded theory. The validation of the analysis was supported by the concept of theoretical saturation involving open coding, axial coding and selective coding processes. The study revealed that seminars, education and coaching programs explained human capacity development structures in Cameroon commercial banks while; effectiveness and efficiency were identified benefits of human capacity development programs. Major constraints relate to language, time and financial supports. In order to improve on human capacity development, the study opined the needs for financial benefits and facilitation after training. This study recommends that an effective human capacity development program should incorporate both internal and external programs with specific attention on: seminars, education and coaching. Provision for linguistic, financial and time resources must be integrated. Lastly an effective training process must be sustainable for both the trainees and the bank.

Abstract

The survival of SMEs is a crucial commitment for the attainment of economic emergence by 2035. However, the sustainability of majority of SMEs has been highly critical as they are confronted by disparate challenges. To this effect, this study seeks to model a survival framework of SMEs in Cameroon. The proposed model is developed based on the philosophical underpins of interpretivism epistemological and subjectivism ontology. A composition of ten focus group (10) consisting of fifty (50) SMEs operators’ was purposively sampled and data for the analysis was gotten through in-depth interview technique. The analysis of qualitative data was completed using the provisions of grounded theory approach to achieve theoretical saturation through open, axial and selective coding processes. The study revealed that high taxes are the major impediment to the success of SMEs. However, other evolving reasons include: lack of management skills, poor leadership abilities and insufficient assets. The study further identified proposed survival strategy for SMEs which constitute an integration of both financial resources and appropriate composition of management skills. The study concludes that survival cannot be guaranteed if these variables are treated in isolation. However, specific attention to the survival strategy include: taxes reduction, availability of credit facilities and development of managerial capacity of SMEs operators. Based on these outcomes, the study suggests that government should reduce taxes and ease financial credits to SMEs as survival strategies.

Abstract

The cost system based on activities ABC is one of the important modern technologies and has a large share of theoretical studies and foreign and Iraqi applied research. Since this system exists, it is subject to many research and studies to derive from it new techniques and tools that would support the provision of appropriate information for management to be used in areas Many of them make decisions, measure and evaluate performance. The problem search continued economic units in the region of Kurdistan in the traditional follow methods in measuring the cost of their products which resulted in the emergence of many problems when determining the cost of products. The objective of the research is to clarify the general requirements and steps for applying modern methods ABB and ABC. Learn how to deal with indirect costs under the use of the cost system based on ABC activities. The importance of this research as sheds light on the importance of the system cost based on the activities of ABC are not limited to achieve the accurate measurement of the costs, or offer of detailed information, but extends it represents a sound basis for the management of activities and processes of economic unity through integration with some of the methods and administrative techniques Modern as TOM, ABB, JIT. The ABC system divides the economic units into sub-activities and analyzes them and knows how they consume costs and the extent of their contribution to the production process, which leads to a reduction in costs by knowing which activities add value or do not add value to production and dispense with activities that do not add value. The ABC system of cost-based activities assists management in making appropriate management decisions based on more realistic costs, which are useful in various fields such as those related to pricing.

Abstract

The objective of this study is to examine the problem of lack of awareness by organizations of the importance of environmental management accounting and its role in determining environmental costs, improving environmental performance and the lack of interest in the environmental management system which is considered environmental management accounting one of its tools, in the words Others, the actual impact of the EMS is somewhat low. Defining the concept of environmental management accounting in general, and environmental costs represented by the costs of environmental protection the costs of treatment emissions treatment and wastewater treatment using the environmental management accounting methodology. The need for environmental management accounting emerged due to the failure of traditional administrative-accounting in accounting. On environmental costs, which are allocated to calculating indirect industrial expenses instead of allocating them directly to the operations, products or activities that generated those costs one of the difficulties facing the application of environmental management accounting is the lack of a unified definition of environmental costs, each company classifies environmental costs according to their circumstances.

Fertilizer Use and Maize output in Sub-Saharan Africa: Empirical Evidence from Selected African Countries Robert Moracha Ogeto & Birhanu Yimer Ali

Fertilizer Use and Maize output in Sub-Saharan Africa: Empirical Evidence from Selected African Countries

Author (s)

Robert Moracha Ogeto & Birhanu Yimer Ali

Abstract

Fertilizer consumption in Sub-Saharan Africa countries has been found to remain low as compared to countries in similar level in other parts of the world. This has led to stagnation and declined yields in most crops across parts of Sub-Saharan Africa for several decades while that in countries that have increased fertilizer use have seen their agricultural productivity considerably increased over the years. This paper examines the effect of fertilizer use on maize output in selected African countries for the period 1990-2010 using data on fertilizer application rates. The data was analyzed using fixed effects regression based on a Cobb-Douglas production function. To take care of country differences in terms of production environments, country dummies were used in the fixed effects estimation. Empirical results indicated that maize output was positively and significantly correlated with land, labour, rainfall, aggregate fertilizer use, nitrogen and phosphorous nutrient fertilizers with land and labour having the highest effect on maize output in Sub-Saharan Africa To take care of rainfall vulnerabilities that could easily negate the positive effect of rainfall, supplementary irrigation measures should be put in place which could include rain water harvesting and small-scale water storage among maize producing households. Given the indication that fertilizer use was low despite its positive influence in maize output, it is recommended that strategies be put in place by relevant stakeholders in respective countries in a bid to boost aggregate and nutrient fertilizer use so as to further increase maize output and these could include price reduction strategies like subsidies and timely availability of fertilizer, reduction in import fee, clearance and warehouse charges at the ports of entry as a way of reducing the final market price. It could also be necessary for creation of more awareness among maize producers on the importance of adequate fertilizer use especially through agricultural extension workers and other relevant stakeholders.

Abstract

Waste management is at its lowest ebb in most towns and communities in Nigeria. Most parts of the city centres do not benefit from public waste disposal services. The goal of this study was to assess the level of environmental literacy in the management of solid waste in Ibadan, Nigeria. The specific objectives were to investigate the waste management practices, assess the level of awareness, their willingness to participate, concern for waste management, attitudes to waste management and governmental strategies used to educate residents about waste management in Ibadan. A total of three hundred and eighty four questionnaires were administered to randomly selected households. Key informant interviews were conducted with officials at the Oyo State Ministry of Environment and Oyo State Waste management Authority. Statistical package for Social Science (SPSS) was used to analyze the quantitative data. The statistical methods used included descriptive statistics of frequency and percentage. The result on waste management practices amongst residents showed that food waste was the most generated in Ibadan, followed by polythene and paper. With regards to awareness, findings showed that residents were generally aware of what waste is and also aware of waste management practices such as recycling and composting. The findings on attitude to waste management revealed that positive attitude was only exhibited towards the benefits of waste management while negative attitude was displayed toward the practicality of waste management. With regards to governmental strategies, result showed the major governmental strategies as public education through media jingles, community awareness campaigns, and inspection of market places, printouts and town meetings. One of the recommendation was that incentive based recycling programs should be introduced to encourage the practice amongst residents.

Author (s)

Md. Shajedul Islam & S.M.M. Hoque Majumder

Abstract

Alkalinity and hardness often used exchangeable when discussing water quality. These collective properties of water share some resemblances but are distinctly different but both has high mineral content. Generally, the water shows alkalinity due to the presence of weak acid and strong base resulting salt, typically as the form of bicarbonate salt and it can create some serious problems in water body. Hard drinking water, carry excess of Ca and Mg salt, may have moderate health benefits but can pose critical problems in domestic and industrial settings. Thus, it is important to assess the water quality with respect to hardness and alkalinity. The objectives of this study to provide an overview of alkalinity and hardness, an understanding of the importance of alkalinity and hardness from ecological perspectives and management, a summary of methods for measuring each, and the current state regulations for each in public waters of Chittagong city. The results obtained for pH, conductivity and alkaline ionic compositions from different surface and ground water samples of Chittagong city presented here with critical observations. For investigations, some related anions and metals examined by UV-visible spectrophotometer and FAAS utilizing Na-tetraborate after the pre-concentration on a column packed with Amberlite XAD-16 resin. The results show that some parameters such as salinity, total alkalinity and hardness; Na+, Ca2+, Cl, and HCO3 loaded in both surface and ground water is quite high than slandered value; other parameters like NO3, NO2, SO42-, PO43-, K+, NH4+, and Mg2+ levels are in permissible range. Overall, it may state that the water of studied areas is very hard, saline as well as alkaline and suggesting that water should not uses for household, irrigation, and industrial purposes without proper treatment.

Abstract

This article explores the impact of corporate value chain power on its external financing liabilities, public debt financing, and corporate performance. This study has collected cross-sectional data of 13,653 firms from the Corporate Bond Market from 2006 to 2016. The results show that the companies with greater power in the value chain have a lower proportion of financing liabilities. This finding indicates that companies with higher value chain power use less financing liabilities and tend to use non-cost commercial credit for financing. The empirical results show that although there is no significant relationship between the power of the corporate value chain and the convenience of public bond financing in all samples, for small-scale and high-growth enterprises, the greater the value chain power, the greater the scale of bond financing, the greater the cost, the lower the bond issue cost. Finally, this article reveals that small-scale, high-growth companies with higher value chain power have better financial performance.

Compressive Properties of Sawdust Composites Consisting of Sodium Silicate Solution and Corn Starch as Binder Chowdhury Al Mamun & Md Arifuzzaman

Compressive Properties of Sawdust Composites Consisting of Sodium Silicate Solution and Corn Starch as Binder

Author (s)

Chowdhury Al Mamun & Md Arifuzzaman

Abstract

Novel composite materials were manufactured using saw dust, sodium silicate solution and corn starch. Corn starch works as a reinforcement to the sodium silicate solution. The floatation method was utilized to obtain the wet mixture for manufacturing composites by compaction. The quantity of saw dust and sodium silicate solution were fixed and the starch powder content in the binder solution was the working variable. Starch powder content in the binder solution were 1.4 g, 1.6 g, 1.8 g and 2.0 g.   The gelatinization of starch is investigated to confirm the gelatinized solid starch content in the binder solution. Compression tests were carried out on the composites in the Universal Testing Machine at a cross head speed of 1 mm/min. The density, compressive strength and modulus were found to increase with increasing gelatinized solid starch content. On the other hand specific compressive strength decreased with increasing density of the composite while specific compressive modulus showed an opposite trend. Comparing with the literature, the developed composites showed superior properties and were found to have practical applications.

Abstract

In her quest to put the nations’ foreign exchange policy in line with global practice, the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) in the mid of 2016 made a paradigm shift by unveiling flexible foreign exchange policy driven purely by market forces. Consequently, forecasting models reported during pegging policy era may be deeming obsolete. This paper proposed a prediction model for future daily selling exchange rate between Nigerian Naira and United States Dollar in the interbank market amidst volatility using daily rates made available by the Central Bank of Nigeria over the periods July, 2016 to October, 2017. We applied the Box-Jenkins methodology to the Naira – US Dollar exchange rate series in order to build an adequate and well specified prediction model. On the first phase of the study, we checked the stationarity of the series and based on Augmented Dickey-Fuller test and correlogram, the series is stationary at level. The findings revealed that the future daily exchange rate of Naira per US Dollar depends on its past rates and associated innovations. This is evident from the fact that  turned out parsimonious model for forecasting the parity between the two currencies on the basis of Bayesian Information Criterion. The said model yielded error of forecast (MAPE) within ten percent.

Abstract

The aim of the study was to evaluate the effectiveness of employee training in the banking sector of Bangladesh, where effectiveness is defined as the improvement of knowledge, skill, ability (KSA) and job performance. There were four predictors (training design, development and implementation of training, validity of training and facilitation of transfer) and two hypotheses were developed to conduct the study. To test the developed hypotheses data were collected from 120 bank employees through close ended questionnaire and convenience sampling were used to select the respondent. Multiple regression analyses were used as a statistical tool to test the impact of the factors on improvement of KSA and job performance. The findings reveal that training design and facilitation of transfer have significant influence on improvement of KSA and job performance. This study will help the managers and practitioner to understand why evaluation of training is so much important. Simultaneously, it will encourage managers to provide support, opportunity and other facilitations that are conducive to transfer training.

Md. Ziaul Hassan, Md. Siraj-Ud-Doulah & Shamima Nasrin Sathi

Abstract

Remittance plays a very important role in the national economy. Remittance inflow in Bangladesh is one of the prime sources of foreign currency reserve. A certain amount of foreign currency reserve is indeed a vital need for the country because of its high degree of dependency on import. Inflow of remittance depends on the amount of manpower migration. Remittance earnings have increased more than five times during the past decade and it is currently the single largest foreign exchange earner for Bangladesh. Inward remittances to Bangladesh during the first six months of FY2011-12 stood at about USD 6.1 billion which is 9.3 per cent higher than the comparable period of the previous fiscal and Reaching an all-time high of 1491.36 USD Million in july of 2014 and a record low of 856.87 USD Million in September of 2017.  The main purpose of this study is to forecast the next ten years Remittance in Bangladesh. Here, we applied different methods of time series and analyze the yearly Remittance data in Bangladesh over the period 1996-1997 to 2016-2017.  We applied Box-Jenkin’s methodology to identify the actual model based on different model selection criterion. On the study at first we have checked the stationarity. For checking stationarity we have used both graphical method and Dickey Fuller test. Then to find the appropriate model for Remittance we have used the ACF, PACF curves. In this research, we found that ARIMA (1, 1, 0) model is suitable for the forecasting the Remittance in Bangladesh. Comparing between the original series and forecasted series, we found that the Remittance flow is in Bangladesh is projected to increasing.

Key words: Remittance inflow, Box-Jenkin’s methodology, Dickey Fuller Test, ACF, PCAF, ARIMA Model, Forecasting.

Abstract

The Study was conducted at Muktagacha upazila of Mymensingh district in Bangladesh for a period of 9 months (From February to October, 2018) with 12 indigenous lactating cows to evaluate the performance of UMB technology by the farmers of Muktagacha upazila at Mymensingh district. Twelve indigenous cows were taken under this study from the village of Rajpur and Garaikuti of Muktagacha upazila under Mymensingh district. The cows were divided randomly into two groups having 5 animals in each group. One is control and another is UMB group. Six lactating cows of control group supplied with basal feeds without supplemented and six lactating cows of supplemented group supplied with basal feeds with the basal feeds plus 500g/d/cow UMB. Dry matter intake was measured 30 days interval and postpartum heat period were also recorded regularly, dry matter intake was significantly (p<0.01) higher than that of control group, live weight changes was measured at 90 days interval. The study findings net weight gain of control and supplemented groups were 1.33±0.80 and 7.00±0.26.Average daily milk yields during the experimental period were 1.84±0.05 in control and 2.45+-0.05 in supplemented group. Body Condition Score and daily milk yield were measured at 7 days interval. The average body condition score of control and supplemented groups were 2.39±0.08, 2.59±0.12; respectively. Calving to first estrus, calving to first service, Service per conception, calving to conception and calving to subsequent calving interval of control and supplemented groups were 138.33±5; 86.67±3; 138.33±5, 87.67±3;1.83±0.31, 1.33±0.21; 155.83±4; 93.67±4 and 435.83±4; 367.17±6 respectively. It can be concluded that UMB may be used for improving milk production and fertility of local cows under the village condition of Bangladesh.
