A STUDY ON THE EFFECT OF POST - MERGER FINANCIAL PERFORMANCE OF CANARA BANK []


In India, the banking system has undoubtedly earned numerous outstanding achievements, in a comparatively short time, for the World’s largest and the most diverse democracy. The reform process of the banking sector or industry is part and parcel of the government strategic agenda aimed at repositioning and integrating the Indian banking sector into the global financial system. There have been several reforms in the Indian banking sector, as well as quite a few successful mergers and acquisitions, which have helped it, grow manifold. Mergers and acquisitions are most widely used strategy by firms to strengthen and maintain their position in the marketplace. In the present times, the banking sector is a rapidly growing industry in India. A comparatively new development in the Indian banking sector is enhanced through mergers and acquisitions. It permits banks to achieve a world class position and throw superior value to the stakeholders. The impact of merger on a company’s stock and the effect on the equity share of the shareholder’s capital is usually proportional. Performance of the bank pre- and post-merger usually is in the green and improved. Most findings of research state that to a certain extent M&A’s have been successful in Indian banking sector. Henceforth, this study focuses on the effect of post-merger performance of Canara bank in India.


Predicting collaborative learning spaces based on traces []


Trace analysis is regularly used by researchers in several fields. The traces have solved several problems in the field of learning either for the teacher or for the learner. In this work, We are interested in methods which facilitate the creation of collaborative spaces employing traces in learning situations for the benefit of learners in difficulty. The approach aims to update the learner profile model to specify their learning weaknesses using seve-ral indicators such as success rate, rate of attempts to fail and the rate of consultation of didactic concepts. For the creation of working groups, we also used the classification of the exercises of the students in difficulty which makes it possible to classify their problems and to create clusters of the exercises. From this grouping, we can create workspaces allowing students to share their experiences for a given problem.

PARTIAL REPLACEMENT OF CEMENT BY EGG SHELL POWDER AND EGG ALBUMEN[ ]


Concrete is a composite material which is good in compressive strength but weak in tensile strength. At present for a variety of reasons, the concrete construction industry is not sustainable. The reason is firstly, it consumes huge quantities of virgin materials which can remain for next generations. Secondly, the principal binder in concrete is Portland cement, the production of which is a major contributor to greenhouse gas emissions which results in global warming and climate changes. 900 kg of CO2 is emitted for production of per ton of cement. The production of cement also uses the natural lime in large quantity which results in scarcity of natural resources in future.

SURVEILLANCE DATA ANALYSES OF MALARIA IN SEBETA DISTRICT, ETHIOPIA FROM 2012-2021 []


Abstract Background Malaria is a mosquito-borne disease caused by protozoan parasites of the genus Plasmodium. Human malaria is endemic in 75% of the total area of Ethiopia, where the transmission is seasonal and more than 54 million people are under epidemiological risk. The severity of the disease, particularly of falciparum malaria, implies high rates of morbidity and mortality. In addition, malaria frequently affects people of the productive age and therefore has a great impact on the economy, but costs of treatment and interference with the course of educating among children are also significant. Methods In Sebeta Health Center, data were collected from blood smear-confirmed, previously documented malaria cases during 2012-2021. Data analyses were performed in Excel and epi.info 7.1 software. Prevalence rates were compared with Fisher exact test. Result During 2012-2021, from an overall examined 53,205 patients, 32,990 (62%) were female and 20,215 (38%) were male. Out of these patients, 4883 (9%) were diagnosed with malaria, and the majority (66%) of cases affected females. With regards to species distribution, 2998 (62%) were confirmed as caused by P. vivax and 1838 (38%) by P. falciparum. The highest rate of positivity was observed in year 2016, followed by 2017 while the lowest prevalence was reported in 2013. Conclusion In the examined period, the prevalence of malaria cases has been increasing from year to year, but showed decline in 2019 and 2020, probably due to Covid-19 pandemic because the medical work focused on the Covid-19 campaign and less patients visited health facilities. The altitude and ecology of the study area are not considered as low land. The most prevalent species was P. vivax and the occurrence of P. falciparum was in part related to immigrants from other malaria endemic areas.

In a batch type reactive system, order with respect to acid and amine, mass transfer coefficient, rate constant was determined by conducting kinetic studies at different succinic acid concentrations. Based upon the value of hatta number and other criterion conditions, enhancement factor and type of reaction regime for TPA and TBA with 1-octanol have been evaluated.


OPTIMAL RECONFIGURATION OF DISTRIBUTION NETWORK FOR POWER LOSS REDUCTION USING POLITICAL OPTIMIZER ALGORITHM []


Network Reconfiguration (NR) is the process of altering the status of the switches in a Distribution Network (DN), in a bid to minimize power loss and improve the overall performance of the network. However, the problem of NR becomes a difficult task, which can adequately be solved using optimization algorithms due to the non-linearity of the electric power system. A recent meta-heuristic optimization algorithm, namely Political Optimizer (PO) is employed to solve the problem of NR in this study. Backward-Forward (BF) sweep algorithm, a load flow analysis method was used to determine the initial state of the network. An optimization model based power loss reduction and voltage stability index using PO was developed in MATLAB. The model was applied to standard IEEE 33-bus system and Ayepe 11 kVA 34-bus feeder of Ibadan Electricity Distribution Company (IBEDC) of Nigeria and implemented using MATLAB. Simulation results showed that for the IEEE 33-bus system, there is a 45.42 % reduction in the total power loss in the network, while for the Ayepe 11 kVA 34-bus DN, there is a 10.7 % reduction in the total power loss after reconfiguring the network using PO. The results demonstrated the effectiveness of the PO algorithm for optimal reconfiguration of DN.

A review on Rainwater Harvesting and its importance []


Water is an essential substance that is used for daily activities in households. However, many households lack access to water. This is caused by depleting natural water resources as a result of increased pressure on available water resources. Some factors contributing to this situation include: massive population expansion, rapid urbanization, inadequate rainfall, climate change, poor management of available water resources and lack of policies that encourage water conservation. Flooding on the other hand is a situation resulting from excessive surface runoff not being collected properly. Flooding can be classified as a natural disaster. However, rainwater harvesting is a technique that tries to collect surface runoff in order to reduce water scarcity. Rainwater harvesting can be said to be a technique that provides solution to the challenges associated with water scarcity and also provides a solution to flooding, when proper rainwater harvesting systems are put in place


Bit Error Rate Analysis of a MIMO MC-CDMA System in the presence of Carrier Frequency Jitter under Rayleigh Fading Channel []


Upcoming wireless services require ultra-highspeed data transmission. Future generation wireless communication systems can meet up the high data rate transmission demand through Multi-Carrier CDMA (MCCDMA) technology. In this paper, we proposed a system model of MIMO MC-CDMA transmitter and MIMO MC-CDMA receiver model with the help of MRC technique at receiver side. Here, we derived the expressions of Signal to Noise plus Interference Ratio (SNIR) and Bit Error Rate (BER) considering frequency jitter with diversity under Rayleigh fading channel. The theoretical analysis is presented in terms of BER and SNIR to improve the receiver sensitivity concerning multiple antennas. The analytical expression demonstrates that numerical results are closely match simulation findings, and the receiver antenna diversity considerably improves the system performance.
