Abstract

­

This study aims to builds and test virtual consumers’ marketing communications and consumers’ loyalty model. In addition, the study also examined the moderating role of language differences in the relationship between virtual consumers’ marketing communications and consumers’ loyalty. Reponses from 251 respondents were analyzed through multiple linear hierarchical regression analysis. The findings indicate that consumers’ marketing communications significantly positive influence on the consumers’ loyalty. However, the language differences weaken the positive relationship consumers’ marketing communications and consumers’ loyalty. This paper has important implications for theory and practice. In addition, the context of a non-individualistic culture, that is, Chinese context has significant implication for others collectivists cultures.

Abstract

­

This paper bothers on analytical review on how desertification caused by climate change propels herders-farmers clashes in Nigeria, as it continues to spread further southwards. The data for the study were obtained from the PRS International Country Risk Guide, Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) and Statistical Bulletin of the Central Bank of Nigeria, spanning from the year 2000-2019. A documentary and econometrics technique were employed, where in, graphical regression analysis, unit root test, bound test, Autoregressive-Distributed Lag short and long run test were conducted. Internal conflict index provided by PRS as index of herdsmen/farmers clashes was used as dependent variable, while desertification was captured in the model using primary tree loss as the felling of trees signifies such, average temperature was captured in the model as a variable that could explain herdsmen/farmers conflicts as a harsh temperature might reduce green vegetation, exacerbating the conflicts and rainfall which is seen to aid green vegetation were captured as independent variables. From the result of the study, no evidence of significant relationship exists between internal conflicts and desertification in Nigeria. In line with this, the study concludes that internal conflicts in Nigeria is not attributable to climate change. In view of this, the study recommends that; Government should set up ranches in the Northern part of Nigeria and feeds provided using the hydroponic farming system. This recommendation is predicated on the cultural differences between the Southern and Northern part of Nigeria so as to avoid occurrence of violent clashes.

 Keywords: Internal Conflict Index, Desertification, Primary tree loss Average Temperature, Rainfall..

Abstract

­

Type 2 diabetes mellitus is responsible for significant burden (health and financial) to individuals and health care system. Omega 3 fatty acid consists anti lipidemic and anti inflammatory properties which is helpful for management of T2DM and its complications. To observe the effects of omega-3 fatty acid on serum adiponectin level and C-reactive protein level in type-2 diabetic patient. The prospective interventional study was carried on with middle aged diabetic patient on the year 2017.Amid them, one group(27) were given fish oil capsule orally (omega 3 fatty acid 2g/day) for consecutive 12 weeks and another group consists 25 subjects  (with placebo supplementation) were nominated  as control. Serum adiponectin by ELISA method  and CRP were estimated by EIA method at laboratory. For statistical analysis, Paired Student’s ‘t’ test and Unpaired Student’s ‘t’ test were administrated. In this study serum adiponectin level significantly rises and post prandial blood sugar decreases after 12 weeks of study period in study group with fish oil capsule supplementation, with comparison to control group. It can be concluded that omega-3 fatty acid supplementation was effective to rise adiponectin levels and decreases post prandial blood sugar levels in T2DM.

 Keywords: T2DM, adiponectin, C-RP and Omega-3 fatty acid.

Mehedi Hasan, Md. Obidul Haque, Saddam Hossain, & Md. Ahsan Habib

Abstract

­

This paper proposes to make a contribution to the existing literature through examining the impacts of electricity consumption and financial development on urbanization in Bangladesh during 1974-2014 by employing modern econometric techniques. We conduct dynamic nexus among financial development, electricity consumption, and urbanization by utilizing ARDL technique. The ARDL technique is employed to find dynamics among variables and to check the long run connection. This analysis performed the unit root problem through the ADF test where variables are I(0). Long-term associations are found by checking the bound test. Both electricity consumption and financial development are significant to affect urbanization. The long-run elasticities are higher impacts on urbanization than the short-run elasticities. Also, various diagnostic tests are made such as serial correlation, heteroscedasticity, normality. To evaluate the parameter stability, we execute the CUSUM test and CUSUM square. The results confirmed that there is no structural break in the economy. The paper provides some policy recommendations based on the results.

Framing of Climate Change Stories Covered by The Kenyan Daily Nation and The People Daily Newspapers Henry H. Neondo

Framing of Climate Change Stories Covered by The Kenyan Daily Nation and The People Daily Newspapers

Author (s)

Henry H. Neondo

Abstract

­

Data collected through qualitative content analysis method and in-depth interviews of sources of information and journalists from two daily newspapers in Kenya, the Daily Nation and the People Daily on how they framed climate change stories during part of 2012, the year when the Kyoto Protocol was ending, found that although the Kenyan media cover climate change, these articles are placed anywhere but front page, rarely took leadership positions on any given page and scarcely on top left quadrant. In effect the media coverage on climate change may not have prominently displayed climate change articles as to solicit public discourses, failed to support the media advocacy objective of the climate change activists and perhaps contributed to the failure of government not to implement the provision of such key international instruments as the Kyoto Protocol.  The study recommended that gate keepers be part of the media advocacy for the Public Relations practitioners.

Limit Pricing through Price Discrimination: A Theoretical study among Telocommunication Companies in East Africa Hillary Ekisa Nambanga

Limit Pricing through Price Discrimination: A Theoretical study among Telocommunication Companies in East Africa

Author (s)

Hillary Ekisa Nambanga

Abstract

­

Limit pricing, which Competition Authorities view as anti-competitive and illegal, is an interesting issue in industrial organization. This is a case where firms with market power charge a price that is lower than their operational cost in order to prevent the entry of new potential competitors or drive out their smaller competitors out of business. This research paper examines limit pricing theoretically among telecommunications companies in the East African Community. The Community has experienced a consistent drop in mobile network service prices since the year 2000 with the smaller mobile network operators blaming their dominant counterparts for initiating these price cuts. These dominant firms are former monopolists who price discriminate between their two tariffs, the pre-liberalization (former monopoly) and post-liberalization (competitive), with a majority of their mobile subscribers still registered under their expensive pre-liberalization tariffs that have high switching costs compared to the competitive tariffs. The paper analyses limit pricing within an oligopoly framework involving a price discriminating dominant incumbent, a fringe (smaller) competitor and a potential entrant in a sequential three-stage game of price competition under complete information. The theoretical results show that the dominant incumbent can profitably use its pre-liberalization tariff price to deter market entry and force its smaller competitors out of business. These results have public policy implications for the East African Competition Authority and other policy makers. These should consider regulating the pre-liberalization tariffs among dominant firms thereby reducing their influence on pricing in order to enhance fair competition among firms in the market.

Economic Growth and Participation of Women in Labor Markets: The Case of Southern Africa Nthabeleng Moshoeshoe & Baorong Yu

Economic Growth and Participation of Women in Labor Markets: The Case of Southern Africa

Author (s)

Nthabeleng Moshoeshoe & Baorong Yu

Abstract

­

This paper examines the relationship between economic growth and women’s participation in Southern African Development Community (SADC). Using panel data from 2000 to 2018 in 16 SADC countries, the paper finds that the participation of women in labor market has a significant impact on economic growth over time. That means that a one percent change in the female labor force participation leads to six percent increase in economic growth. The results also show that the increasing participation of women in the labor market and the growing number of female employers have a significant and increasing impact on SADC economic growth in the long run. Thus a one percent change in female employment marks 0.03 percent increase in economic growth over time. This paper contributes to SADC women’s empowerment policies. In order to increase women’s participation in labor market and economic growth, SADC must focus on policies that allow women to access resources and become business owners.

Chief Executive Officer with Machiavellianism Trait and Survival of Family-owned Businesses in South-South, Nigeria

Abstract

­

Family-owned businesses (FOBs) are seen as a major contributor to economic growth and development in the global economy. It has nothing to do with the important role they continue to play in job creation, the growth of business enterprises in communities, and the growth of gross domestic product (GDP). Sadly, in addition to their national development efforts, only a small percentage of these family-owned businesses survive the second and third generations. This astonishing practice worries many scholars who claim that these failures are embedded in poor asset systems, incompetence of the management team, poor transformation plans, etc. CEOs and the survival of these family-owned businesses was limited. This multidisciplinary study examined the personality traits of CEOs in Machiavellianism in the southern region of Nigeria and the survival of family-owned businesses. This study is tied to the Sustainable Family Business Theory (SFBT). The study consisted of 628 people, with 289 participants from hotels in the southern region of Nigeria. A structural model used for data analysis, CEO Machiavellianism points out that personality traits are negatively related to the survival of family-owned businesses.

Abstract

­To investigate the factors affecting educated customers’ attitude towards online shopping in the Rangpur division of Bangladesh is the main focus of this study. The study has considered 300 respondents as the sample size (n= 300) who are living in the Rangpur division and their responses have been collected through a structured questionnaire using a non-probability convenience sampling technique. To measure the impact of various influential factors on educated customer online shopping attitude, a multiple regression analysis has been conducted through SPSS software version 20. The result shows that in terms of demographic analysis, respondents like female service-holder aging 26-30 years having graduation are mostly involved with online shopping in the Rangpur division. The study also shows that all four independent factors like convenience, website design, perceived enjoyment, online shopping experience with P < 0.05 considered in this study have a significant positive impact on educated customer attitude towards online shopping. For the development of online shopping, the E-business platform should be well equipped with attractive website features, quality products with fair price and convenience, and security and fun which result in customer belief, satisfaction, and loyalty.
