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.

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.

FAYE Nicolas D.M, FAN Libo, Conghui Hu, Kokou W. Tozo & Mouanda Gilhaimé

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.
