By reading this paper, readers will also learn about the demographics effected by the recession and the Dodd-Frank Act, which was drafted to combat future occurrences of this nature.

  • Scapegoating in ‘The Stranger’ By Albert Camus

    • Abstract: The present paper intends to discuss the amount to which scapegoating (as understood by René Girard in ‘The Scapegoat’) can be applied to Camus’s novel ‘The Stranger’. While issues arise when we are trying to apply Girard’s definition of scapegoating to the famous novel by Camus, this paper shall try to prove that they are only apparent issues, and that the novel is a perfect illustration of Girard’s theory.

  • Decentralization in Tanzania: Perceptible Efficiency and Effectiveness in
           Management of Community Health Care, Free Basic Education and Public
           Private Partnership

    • Abstract: Decentralization has been a means to enhance efficiency and effectiveness in the management of local government affairs. Tanzania has undergone a reform through decentralization by devolution (D by D) and shifted relative power to lower levels of government known as local government authorities. The purpose is to improve the management of local government affair including the management of community health, free basic education and the management of contracts through public-private partnership. The objective of this paper is to review and analyse on how D by D has enhanced efficiency and effectiveness in the management of local government affairs in Tanzania. Data were collected through reviewing different documents including published journal articles, unpublished Master and PhD thesis/dissertations, government reports and online materials. Efficiency and effectiveness in the management of local government affairs are enhanced by D by D as there are improvements in the management of the community health fund as the number of households enrolled is consecutively increasing in the past five years from 543,328 in 2012/2013 to 2,251,055 in 2017/2018giving a total of 13,506,330 beneficiaries out of the total population. In the management of free fee basic education, head masters, mistress and head teachers in Singida and Ruangwa districts are successful in overcoming the challenges of free fee basic education while there is improved community participation in the management of management of contracted services in Ulanga district council. This paper recommends for reviewing and analysing how D by D has enhanced management of waste collection, the use of Government electronic Payment Gateway (GePG) in revenue collection and the efficiency and effectiveness of Tanzania Rural and Urban Roads Agency (TARURA).

  • The Concept of Waqf-Syirkah for Community Food Security

    • Abstract: Food is essential for human survival, and ensuring its availability is critical. Waqf is present as one of supporting institutions that supports food security. This paper aims to see how waqf can contribute to the food security of a community. Waqf, in its sense is an Islamic philanthropic institution that focus on welfare of Muslim. As a Muslim, it is important to safeguard one’s life as stated in Maqasid As Shariah. This paper employs systematic literature review to see the contribution of waqf through syirkah (partnership) for community food security. Syirkah plays its role as a connector between waqf and food security, with farmers at its spearhead. Syirkah is chosen because it is compatible with farmer’s business and waqf may serve to their business sustainability in general, and farmer’s livelihood in particular. The ultimate goal of this concept is to achieve stability in the supply of staple food which leads to its price stability, hence staple food is available and accessible to all. Furthermore, the stability achieved will reduce the burden of government to provide staple food in times of crisis and to promote welfare and better social cohesion of a community.

    • Abstract: This study applies the generalized sub ADF (GSADF) tests to investigate whether bubbles exist in the United States markets over the period of 2015-2019, focusing on the COVID-19 period.

  • Illicit Activities Beneath the Surface Web: Investigating Domestic
           Extremism on Anonymous Social Media Platforms

    • Abstract: At the beginning of 2021, the Internet was used to spread words to incite insurrection and violence through social media, incited a pro-Trump mob riot into a U.S. Capitol building. Furthermore, due to recent acts of domestic terrorism in Texas, New Zealand, and California, police authorities have begun investigating social media presence that premeditated harmful acts. In all three instances, the shooters posted their manifesto online and had a presence on 8chan. The common thread among all shooters is their identification as a white nationalist and their social media site affiliation with Infinitechan, where they hid their radical ideas. Similarities in the shooters’ profiles include their perceived viewpoints of population groups regarding their political, ethnic, and social identities. This paper will provide insight into the forums where domestic terrorists spread their agendas. It will also set the foundation for further research towards a strategic algorithm that compiles and analyses relevant users’ profiles by using OSINT and data analytics techniques).

  • Management of Educational Efficiency and Efficiency

    • Abstract: Numerous specialist studies allow managers to find accessible answers on how to develop and increase the autonomy of educational establishments in the type of management model. Every school head has to have a clear vision of the school and of its connection with the society it is part of. The vision of the manager must be shared with both the institution’s staff and the local community. It should be pointed out that there is no effective school if the manager can’t express this vision with the rest of the people who come into contact with the unit. Vision is the starting point for a mission assigned to the school unit by its manager. In general, the mission of the school is to integrate each pupil in society, to continually improve the performance of the educational act in good conditions and to the required standards. The purpose of this article is to outline the new challenges of the modern world and to highlight effective management methods.

  • An Investigation of the Performance of Islamic and Interest Based Banking
           Evidence from Pakistan

    • Abstract: The main difference between Islamic and conventional banking is that Islamic banking works on profit and loss while conventional banking work is interest based. The aim of this research study is to measure and compare the financial performance of Islamic and conventional banking in Pakistan during 2006 to 2015. This study is to examine and to evaluate the performance of 5 Islamic banks (Meezan Islamic Bank, Bank Islami Limited, Al Baraka Islamic Bank, Dubai Islamic Bank Limited and Burj Bank Limited) and 5 conventional banks (Muslim Commercial Bank Limited, United Bank Limited, Askari Bank Limited, Allied Bank Limited, Habib Bank Limited) in terms of profitability, liquidity, risk, capital and efficiency.

Primary data has been gathered from interviews and Secondary data has been gathered from the balance sheets and income statements of the sampled banks for the period of 2006 to 2015.Financial ratios such as profitability ratios, liquidity ratios, solvency ratios, capital ratios and efficiency ratios are used for measure of the financial performance of both banking sector. The results indicate that Islamic banks are less profitable, more liquid, less risky and less efficient. There is no significant difference in terms of capital between Islamic and conventional banks.
