Importance of Financial Education in Making Informed Decision on Spending: Recent Study | Chapter 2 | Emerging Issues and Development in Economics and Trade Vol. 4

The discourse of spending is important if finance is of concern. Those who save money realize the fact that wise spending leads to saving and hence investing. A household that spends unwisely can end up complaining on insufficient funds attained. Governments and organizations which spend unwisely will always cry for budget deficit. Therefore, this chapter provides a discussion on the importance of financial education (financial literacy) in making informed decision on spending. We have people in our families who always cry for insufficiency of funds. And to them they think that God has given an outright favor to some people to enjoy the lives. But we also notice that those who seem prosperous most of them are not Godly. They demonstrate a bad behavior to families, to people near them, to our kids. If their prosperity is a result of God’s blessing, we could at least realize that these people are believers.  It was from that line of thinking this study became eminent. This chapter exemplifies the use of mobile phones, food, fuels, and goodwill as among the key aspects which need to be looked at, while utilizing our money. The first part covers the introduction which reveals the definition of financial education as opposed to financial statement analyses (FSA) and or accounts information (AI). The second part reveals the importance of financial education to individuals, governments and financial institutions. The third part is the challenges for attaining financial education and examples that reveal the importance of financial education. The fourth part is the conclusion and recommendations. The chapter concludes that while income attained at any level is important, most suffrage related with insufficient income in many households is due to poor spending caused by lack of financial education. We have noted that most workers once have got a job, the first thing that one would do is ask for financial support from the bank to buy a car. Assuming that the car one has bought is at 15,000 USD, and his/her salary is 700 USD per month. The interest rate of a bank in Tanzania for instance is 19 to 20 percent. This means that you have created a grave onto yourself in the following aspects. 1) You have bought a car while your emirs work does not need you to have a car. 2)  You have created an up for and from vehicle which adds expenses to the salaries. 3) You have been asked the financial institutions to take part of the money from your very little money to its bank. What you remain with is very small amount of money. The computation will follow to mark the evidence of spending to the car for a new worker.  Hence this is a must-read book to allow the people know how to save money, when to buy a car, when and what types of vehicles you should buy while you are very junior worker, what actually you should not do while at work.

Use of the Arrhenius Equation in Kinetic Analyses and Mathematical Modeling of Rate Data Requires the Most Precise, Even Scrupulous, Application and Term Definitions | Chapter 6 | Theory and Applications of Chemistry Vol. 2

This article presents a critical analysis of the frequent practice of using the Arrhenius equation for mathematical modeling of very many physical and chemical rate processes. This approach may also be used to characterize the controls and mechanisms of the rate processes investigated. We also discuss  the  specific  form  of  the Arrhenius-type  equation  as  a  relationship  meriting  detailed investigations. In our opinion, the use of the Arrhenius relationship often can only approximate to the behavior of such systems, exemplified by the systems discussed below, including the work of N N Semenov, A K Galwey, A G Mershanov, etc. We draw attention to "erroneous" experimental designs, including the so-called "global kinetic mechanism" and other widespread uses of theoretical models which do not necessarily represent the real situation. Such limitations in rate data analyses impact negatively throughout this branch of science. Here we attempt to question these ac

A Brief Study of Middleware Technologies: Programming Applications and Management Systems | Chapter 15 | Novel Research Aspects in Mathematical and Computer Science Vol. 1

  Many platforms, services, applications, hardware, and operating systems are connected through the middleware layer. Because the middleware layer abstracts much low-level complexity and makes applications and software systems portable, it allows disparate systems to interface and function together in harmony. Middleware technologies enable software engineers to swiftly construct software systems and applications, allowing developers to focus on more important tasks. This chapter examines several types of middleware systems and discusses middleware capabilities, middleware operation, middleware's function in cloud-based systems, and the best middleware platforms to use. Middleware systems are widely utilised and can be found in practically any software system or application. Middleware programmes provide as a link between many sorts of systems and protocols. They serve as a mechanism for various systems. To successfully exchange information, it runs on a variety of operating system

A Facility-based Assessment of Internalized Stigma among Patients with Severe Mental Illnesses in Maiduguri, North-Eastern Nigeria | Chapter 05 | Emerging Research in Medical Sciences Vol. 3

Introduction: Public stigmatization of mental illnesses might lead to the internalization of the stigma by persons with mental illness (PWMIs) which might also lead to erosion of self-esteem and negative consequences on treatment outcome. This study assessed the prevalence of internalized stigma and analyzed its socio-demographic and clinical predictors among PWMIs in a sub-Saharan African mental health facility. Methods: Patients with schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and severe depression (n = 370) were randomly interviewed at the out-patient department of the Federal Neuropsychiatric Hospital, Maiduguri. They completed the sociodemographic and clinical proformata, Oslo social support scale, and an adapted version of the internalized stigma of mental illness scale (ISMI). Results: A total of 83 subjects (22.5%) met the study's criterion score for high internalized stigma. The independent predictors of high internalized stigma were; poor social support (Odds ratio, OR =
