The positively best bacteria to receive when doing an unknown project

The word bacteria receives a bad connotation in the everyday world but some may not realize the importance bacteria has on a person’s immunity and health. There can be both good and bad bacteria. Good bacteria, for example, helps to breakdown food enabling the digestion process to work smoothly and absorb nutrients like probiotics. These good bacteria are often found in foods like yogurt, cheese, and sauerkraut. Best of all, good bacteria can help treat infectious diseases. A study has shown that, when injected with a good predatory bacteria like Micavibrio aeruginosavorus and Bdellovibrio baceriovorus, an antibiotic resistant bacteria was defenseless (Nordqvist, 2013). The study was created for an eye infection to see whether good bacterial pathogens would be able to fight off bad bacterial pathogens without damaging the eye or causing further irritation. The term microbiology means the study of microscopic organisms. Within the specialized area, microbiologists help to identify new organisms and how they affect life on earth. There are new organisms being discovered every day, and there could be dangers or losses without proper identification of how they live, what they do, and can they be controlled. A study was done to show the process of categorizing and identifying an unknown organism. Throughout the semester, multiple tests were performed to distinguish between the different types of bacteria and characteristics that make them standout from similar bacteria. Since microbes are the longest living things on earth, the study of microbes should be important and become a priority for many since these small organism do not have to be seen in order to kill. These microscopic pathogens can serve for the better or worse.

...Sustainability of BMT financing for Developing Micro-enterprises Widiyanto b. Mislan Cokro1 Abdul Ghafar b. Ismail2 School School of Economics Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia Bangi, 43600 Selangor D.E., Malaysia E-mail : agibab@ukm.my This draft, February 2008 Abstract The aim of this study is to analyze the sustainability of Islamic micro-financing for developing micro-enterprises (ME). We use the sample of Baitul Mal Wat Tamwil (BMT), as Islamic microfinance institution in Indonesia. Two approaches will be used to explore the sustainability, i.e., technical efficiency (using data envelopment analysis (DEA) and level of outreach. The results indicate that: first, generally the efficiency of BMTs is relatively low. Scale efficiency also indicates that BMTs are operated still far from optimal scale. The results suggest that there is gap in efficiency scores obtained from CCR and BCC models. This indicates that BMTs still face the managerial problems. Second, Islamic micro-financing is useful for developing micro-enterprises and contribute a great social benefits to the society in several ways. Although the profitability efficiency of BMTs is relatively low, since generally BMTs have made a profit and social benefit, Islamic financing can be predicted to be sustainable – able to provide viable Islamic financing. Keywords: Sustainability, technical efficiency of profitability efficiency, level of outreach. 1 Lecturer of Islamic economics, Sultan Agung Islamic......

...EXPERIMENTAL STUDY OF MICRO ULTRASONIC MACHINING PROCESS Sreenidhi Cherku, Murali M Sundaram, and K P Rajurkar Center for Nontraditional Manufacturing Research University of Nebraska-Lincoln Lincoln, Nebraska, USA INTRODUCTION Micro ultrasonic machining (micro USM), is one of the efficient material removal processes especially suitable for the micromachining of hard and brittle materials. The principle of micro USM is shown in Figure 1. In micro USM workpiece which is placed on the workpiece table vibrates at ultrasonic frequency (40 KHz). Abrasive slurry is injected on the top of the workpiece. There is a rotating tool which hits the abrasive particles in the slurry which in turn hit the workpiece and chip away the material from it. The vibrations given to the workpiece aid in refreshing the slurry so that fresh abrasive particles are in contact with the workpiece and also in removing the debris from the tool workpiece gap [1-4]. In many conventional machining processes like grinding, milling and broaching processes oil has been successfully used as cutting fluid. These oils can be used either as straight oils, which are pure petroleum based oils or emulsifiers which are water based oils. Use of straight oils have excellent lubricating properties and are used especially for machining process involving low speeds, low clearance requiring high quality surface finish. These oils have more viscosity and good lubricating properties than......

Micro Econ Paper

...Roughly 4 billion people living in developing countries and emerging economies do not have access to financial services such as credit, savings and insurance. Formal financial intermediaries, such as commercial banks, usually refuse to serve poor households and micro-enterprises because of the high cost of small transactions, lack of traditional collateral, lack of basic requirements for financing and geographic isolation. By doing so, these institutions ignore the enormous potential in talents and entrepreneurship of this stratum of society. Providing access to financial services will stimulate the independence and self-development of poor households and micro-entrepreneurs. This will help not only to improve poor people’s economic condition, but also to provide a way to maintain or improve their quality of life in the face of uncertainty. Moreover, gaining access to financial services is a critical step in connecting the poor to a broader economic life and in building the confidence for them to play a role in the larger community. Some of this slowdown can be blamed on events elsewhere. Europe’s pain, for example, has spread far beyond its immediate neighbors. The European Union remains the biggest foreign market for many emerging economies, buying about 19% of China’s exports and 22% of South Africa’s. By increasing access to financial services for the poor segments of society, the financial sector can play an important role in alleviating poverty in developing countries....

...the needs of needy small and poor borrowers kindle the micro finance concept. The impact of micro finance programmes on reduction of poverty is considerably encouraging in many countries. Many studies have revealed that micro finance has made positive impact on some socio economic variables like empowerment of women and Schedule Caste and Scheduled Tribes, child education, household nutrition. The microfinance movement has known an important growth during the last couple of decades due to group lending method, targeting of women and poorest of the poor. Microfinance provided the poor people to access wide range of financial services. They need financial services to seize business opportunities, to invest in home improvements and to meet seasonal and family expenses. Development experts from around the world have been attracted by microfinance because it presents a series possibilities for extending markets, reducing poverty, and fostering social change. It also has chain of problem that needs much debate. The aim of our study is to describe the uniqueness that has created by the movement. Another aim is to deal with and elucidate the problems that are associated with the programme Objective of the Study: On the nature, concept, regulations and practices of micro-finance in India there has been a lot of disputes and discussions. Some believe that economic prosperity cannot come without financial inclusion. Micro-finance is considered as a way for financial......

...* The Micro Dimension In this section, we will see more clearly the role of the smallest units which is the micro economic dimension. The previous section has described the macro and meso economic dimension. The macro level is the level of the individual in the organization. At the micro-level, also referred to as the local level, the research population typically is an individual in their social setting or a small group of individuals in a particular social context. Examples of micro-level levels of analysis include, but are not limited to, the following. * Alien, stateless person, asylum seeker, refugee * Person, citizen * Partnership, marriage * Families, household * Neighbourhood * Cases of maids abuse Malaysia is also not free from issues related to abusing the maids by employer. This crime is increasingly rising despite various actions committed by certain parties to overcome this crime. There are so many kinds of abuses made by the employers on their maid. Some of them have been beaten, raped, tortured with scalding water and nearly all have been treated like slaves and not paid for months or years of exhausting work, beaten, raped, tortured with scalding water and nearly all have been treated like slaves and not paid for months or years of exhausting work. Many still bear the scars, scalds and wounds inflicted on them for example like the former case of Nirmala Bonat. This can refer to The Star Online at ......

... Eiteman and Guthrie’s 1952 American Economic Review Paper ‘The shape of the average cost curve’ where 316 versus 18 manufacturing firms (and 1020 versus 62 products) were reported by managers as having diminishing rather than rising marginal costs. 4 Specifically, this is caused by a downward sloping rather than U-shaped Long-Run Average Cost Curve and/or a pecuniary economy. 2. According to renowned Economist János Kornai, capitalism is a demand-constrained economy5 which causes the building of excess supply capacity in order to be able to exploit short-term market opportunities. Excess supply capacity means significant economies of scale6. Figure 2: The relationship between capacity utilisation and employment in the USA Figure 2 above shows the empirical evidence supporting this theory during recent years (with capacity utilisation never exceeding 90%, and falling to 80% during the Internet boom)7. One will note that capacity utilisation falls during booms as firms build even more excess capacity in anticipation of increasing output. 3. Stefan Felder’s 1996 European Economic Review Paper ‘Fire insurance in Germany: A comparison of price-performance between state monopolies and competitive regions’ indicates that there are substantial scale economies in the insurance sector. 5 Whereas communism was a resource-constrained economy characterised by shortages. This is explained in depth in his paper ‘Economics of Shortage’. 6 The work of the......

...villages. Hence, it is easier to form groups that would follow a standardized procedure. This makes it easier to operate with the Grameen system in Bangladesh than in India. It is observed that the Grameen system is better suited for more densely populated areas. There are parts of India which are as densely populated as Bangladesh, and some of the Northern hill tracts, and some part of the Sundarbans, are fairly thinly populated. The population density in India is a little higher than 1/3rd that of Bangladesh. In the Grameen system, the groups avail micro-financial services from the Bank, while the SHGs are effectively a microbank carrying out their own savings mobilization and lending. The basic difference in the approaches of the Grameen system and the SHG model is that the former starts with microcredit and then graduates to micro-savings, while the SHG model is based on the concept of micro-savings leading to micro-credit. Thus, the SHG model is more sustainable from viability point of view. Though both the models are for the poor, yet Grameen system is more suited to the very poor category of people who may not have sufficient fund to generate the initial savings required in the SGH system. Unlike Bangladesh, India has a good network of commercial banks with almost 70% of the 80,000-odd bank branches located in the rural and semi-urban areas.

...Supply and Demand of Personal Computers Today almost all households have a personal computer. The majority of households have multiple personal computers. In all the developed nations across the world, this is the norm. It is common to have one desktop computer and several additional laptops within the household. Twenty years ago, this was definitely not the norm. From 1995 to 2015, the price of a personal computer had decreased significantly due to the advancement of technology. Two of the basic principles of microeconomics are supply and demand. As the supply of a product rises to be greater than the demand, the price of the particular product decreases (Applications of Demand and Supply, 2010). This is a perfect example of the effects of supply and demand on the market for personal computers. Twenty years ago, the personal computer was just beginning to spread to middle-class Americans (Comparing Today's Computers to 1995's, 2012). Before this time, computers were mostly only seen in businesses and wealthy households (Court, 2011). A personal computer that was purchased in 1995, for example, had a very different appearance than a computer purchased today. Not only were they much bulkier and space-consuming, they were slower, less efficient, had less storage space, and less memory (Court, 2011). At this time, the average price for a computer was more than $2000 (Comparing Today's Computers to 1995's, 2012). An invention then took off that would change the not......

...only to the sectoral equity caps, entry routes and other relevant sectoral regulations. The issue of de-reservation had been a subject of animated debate within government for more than twenty years. The Approach to the Eleventh Five Year Plan noted the adverse implications of reservation of products for exclusive manufacture by the MSEs and recommended the policy of progressive de-reservation. To facilitate further investments for technological up-gradation and higher productivity in the micro and small enterprises, 654 items have been taken off the list of items reserved for exclusive manufacture by the manufacturing micro and small enterprises in the last few years – reducing it to 21 at present. This has helped the sector in enlarging the scale of operations and also paved the way for entry of larger enterprises in the manufacture of these products in keeping with the global standards. Credit/Finance Credit is one of the critical inputs for the promotion and development of the micro and small enterprises. Some of the features of existing credit policy for the MSEs are: Priority Sector Lending: Credit to the MSEs is part of the Priority Sector Lending Policy of the banks. For the public and private sector banks, 40% of the net bank credit (NBC) is earmarked for the Priority Sector. For the foreign banks, however, 32% of the NBC is earmarked for the Priority Sector, of which 10% is earmarked for the MSE sector. Any shortfall in such lending by the foreign banks has to......

...There are several business models how Microfinance institution (MFI) operates. Generally speaking, MFI provides micro loans or insurance to the poor to spur their self-reliant entrepreneurs. On one hand, micro loans give the low-income people an opportunity to discover full potential for developing their own business and to bring home the bacon. On the other hand, micro insurance helps the poor manage variety risks, such as health risk and property risks, and sustain the business development. How the micro insurance works is revealed in the path to restoration after severe storm hitting Haiti in June 2011. Fonkoze, the largest MFI in Haiti, collaborated with the Microinsurance Catastrophe Risk Organization (MiCRO) to provide natural disaster insurance coverage to its clients after heavy rainfall which caused damage in Haiti. The insurance helped the borrowers to pay back the outstanding debt, have access to another loan to rebuild their lives, and receive small compensation for loss of property. This example demonstrates the positive influence on viability of micro finance products to support a sustainable economic growth in developing countries. According to the 2009 MFI benchmarks provided by Microfinance Information Exchange (MIX)1, Latin American and the Caribbean (LAC) region has the largest FMIs number as well as yield on gross portfolio among four continents. (Figure 1) Even though microfinance has its long history, which can be traced back to the 1970s, and the...
