Adoption doesn't end when the papers are signed -- not for the birth mother, not for the adoptive mother and not for the adopted child. It is a decision with consequences that last a lifetime. While there are many wonderful books on how to adopt, when to adopt, making an adoption plan, and the like, ADOPTION IS FOREVER is at times humorous, sometimes gut-wrenching, but always honest. "A refreshingly new look at adoption," reviews Roger H. Rubin, Ph.D.

Since 1990s to date, there has been a growing global interest among researchers in impact assessment of research and development (R&D). Attention has specifically been placed on the impact of R&D interventions on target beneficiaries. In this regard, this work, besides reviewing studies on impact assessment of agricultural research in Tanzania it documents the experience of Tanzanian farmers in the use of innovations by focusing on rice research-based innovations. Adaptation rather than adoption of innovations is evident in smallholder rice farming. Moreover, it sheds light on the limitation of the production-based reductionist approach in assessing the impact of research on food security. The economic costs and benefits of rice research in rain-fed agriculture in Tanzania are also presented. In general, this book should be of great interest to students in agricultural extension, rural sociology, agricultural economics, development studies as well as managers of agricultural research.

Master's Thesis from the year 2015 in the subject Business economics - Miscellaneous, grade: 1,00, Charles University in Prague (Institute of Economic Studies), language: English, abstract: This paper analyses the process of knowledge-base adoption in the enterprise environment. Using data from two knowledge-management systems operated by the company, Semanta, s.r.o. we studied the day-to-day interactions of employees using the system and identified the important drivers of system adoption. We began by studying the effect of co-workers' collaborative activities on knowledge creation within the system. It was found that they had a positive and significant impact upon overall knowledge creation and thus on adoption. Secondly, we explored how the newly defined concept of gamification could help determine and encourage an increase in knowledge creation. The use of gamification tools, such as the "Hall of Fame" page, turned out to have significant influence in the adoption process. Thirdly, we examined how users continually seek knowledge within the system and how asking for missing information and being supplied with answers has an impact on adoption rates. It was shown that the quicker the responses and the more experts dealing with requests the greater the impact on knowledge base adoption. Finally, we showed that the size and character of the company deploying the knowledge management system does not influence the adoption drivers. This paper represents an effo...

Project Report from the year 2013 in the subject Computer Science - Applied, grade: 75, University of Newcastle upon Tyne (School of Computing Science), course: Advanced Computer Science, language: English, abstract: Simulating the growth of human brain is a computationally intensive task, requiring heavy CPU and GPU clusters. Considering growth in the area of Web-based simulation along with its advantages over traditional simulation technologies, this project proposes a Web-based model for simulating the growth of human brain. Also, emphasis is given to test the new, feature rich HTML5 technology in order to discourage browser dependencies or additional plugin requirement. Two categories of Web-based simulation-remote simulation and visualization and hybrid simulation and visualization, have been developed and tested in this project. Results showed that latter approach that uses HTML5 for data visualization is more efficient both in terms of overall execution time and server space consumption.

'In the best interest of the children' describes the author's experience of his daughters' adoption in the US. For Belgium to recognize this adoption, the author's family even had to take the Belgian State to Court. This far-reaching experience encouraged the author to reflect about the topic of international adoption. Why is adoption being treated as a suspicious institution by the same agencies which claim to act only in 'the best interest of the children'?This book denounces the practices described above, and calls for action to change them.Professor Elizabeth Bartholet, Morris Wasserstein Professor at Law, Faculty Director Child Advocacy Program, Harvard Law School: "Key forces mounting the attack [against international adoption] claim the child human rights mantle, arguing that such adoption denies heritage rights, and often involves abusive practices. Many nations assert rights to hold onto the children born within their borders, and others support these demands citing subsidiarity principles. But children's most basic human rights to family are at the heart of the true meaning of subsidiarity, and children will often find family only in international adoption.This book is important because it tells the story about how governments and government officials, claiming to represent the best interest of the children, prevent good people from giving children the nurturing home they so desperately need. We need more adoptive parents like thi...

Master's Thesis from the year 2015 in the subject Business economics - Banking, Stock Exchanges, Insurance, Accounting, grade: Distinction, , course: Commonwealth Executive Master of Business Administration., language: English, abstract: Data Innovation is gradually changing the banking industry around the world. Digital banking offers banks new opportunities and challenges. This paper gives a comprehension of how demographic characteristics, social components and consumer perception and attitudes towards digital banking influence its adoption. Digital banking has been developed in order to enable consumers to gain a greater share in the banking market. In Mauritius, there is little awareness about the emergence of digital banking despite the fact that this service is presently representing an important share in the banking market. This is because digital banking is a new industry here, and therefore, consumer acceptance and use of digital banking is still limited. To date, very little research has been conducted into factors which influence consumer adoption of digital banking in Mauritius, and so, therefore, there is a need for a study such as this.A research framework in light of the diffusion of innovation theory was utilized to identify elements that would impact the adoption of digital banking. This report has evaluated current literature and conclusions about this innovation banking technology. It has likewise reviewed the elements, including consumer demographic c...

Gain a holistic view of agricultural (re)insurance and capital market risk transfer Increasing agricultural production and food security remain key challenges for mankind. In order to meet global food demand, the Food and Agriculture Organisation estimates that production has to increase by 50% by 2050 and requires large investments. Agricultural insurance and financial instruments have been an integral part to advancing productivity and are becoming more important in increasingly globalized and specialized agricultural supply chains in the wake of potentially more frequent and severe natural disasters in today’s key producing markets. Underwriting, pricing and transferring agricultural risks is complex and requires a solid understanding of the production system, exposure, perils and the most suitable products, which vastly differ among developed and developing markets. In the last decade, new insurance schemes in emerging agricultural markets have greatly contributed to the large growth of the industry from a premium volume of US$10.1 billion (2006) to US$30.7 billion (2017). This growth is bound to continue as insurance penetration and exposure increase and new schemes are being developed. Agricultural (re)insurance has become a cornerstone of sovereign disaster risk financing frameworks. Agricultural Risk Transfer introduces the main concepts of agricultural (re)insurance and capital market risk transfer that are discussed through industry case studies. It also discusses best industry practices for all main insurance products for crop, livestock, aquaculture and forestry risks including risk assessment, underwriting, pricing, modelling and loss adjustment. Describes agricultural production risks and risk management approaches Covers risk transfer of production and financial risks through insurance and financial instruments Introduces modelling concepts for the main perils and key data sources that support risk transfer through indemnity- and index-based products Describes risk pricing and underwriting approaches for crop, livestock, aquaculture and forestry exposure in developed and developing agricultural systems Become familiar with risk transfer concepts to reinsurance and capital markets Get to know the current market landscape and main risk transfer products for individual producers, agribusinesses and governments through theory and comprehensive industry case studies Through Agricultural Risk Transfer, you’ll gain a holistic view of agricultural (re)insurance and capital market solutions which will support better underwriting, more structured product development and improved risk transfer.

Seminar paper from the year 2005 in the subject Computer Science - Commercial Information Technology, grade: 1,0, European Business School - International University Schloß Reichartshausen Oestrich-Winkel (Institute of Research on Information Systems), language: English, abstract: Service-oriented architecture (SOA), often enthusiastically emphasized as the future IT infrastructure, is currently a big topic in the IT community. In their seminar thesis, the authors provide an introduction into the technology and management possibilities of SOA.Based on an analysis of literature, the authors analyze the strength, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats for SOA as an IS architecture, including the advantages and disadvantages from both technological and management view. Using this analysis, a framework is proposed that shows that various determinants need to be considered when planning the adoption of SOA in a corporate context. The study shows that beyond capital requirements, also strategic, process, and cultural determinants play a significant role. Considering these, the authors derive a set of four generic adoption strategies for SOA in practice, highlighting exemplary scenarios in which companies should implement SOA themselves or with the help of external providers.While the study highlights the need for further scientific analysis of SOA adoption, managers and executives of IT can use it's results to assess whether SOA fits their current situation or not. The generic ...

Information and communication technology has direct role to play in education and if used appropriately can bring many benefits to the classroom. ICT use in school management is important if its impact has to be felt in education. The perception and experience of teachers and school administrators play an important role in adoption of ICT schools. Computer use in Kenyan schools is still in its early phase despite the introduction of ICT the 70s. The potential of ICT as a tool to aid administration of schools has not been fully exploited.Despite the efforts by the stakeholders to integrate ICT in schools,the level of integration is low. Hence it is crucial to investigate the issues pertaining to the low level of adoption of ICT in schools. This study investigated the adoption and use of ICT enhancing efficiency in management of public secondary schools. The study findings are expected to be helpful to educational managers, policy makers and scholers interested in ICT use in schools and education sector in general.

Tapendra Bahadur Shah Partnership extension for agricultural livelihoods

Insufficient and feeble coverage by government agricultural extension in Nepal lead to remodelling of thought from supply driven government extension towards more demand-driven equity based pluralistic and more collaborative extension. In the context, evidence in favour of partnership was produced in Chitwan district by DADO (a GO) and LI-BIRD (a NGO) since 2000 for three years. This fact evolved through a survey conducted in Chitwan and Nawalparasi of Nepal. It was found that,irrespective of type, the success of extension depends on the quality and relevancy of innovation to the farmer and locality. Likewise, proper selection of partnership organization, innovation with complete package were other crucial factors. Partnership extension was assessed with four parameters-extent of adoption, productivity, and income from agronomical crops and cropping intensity and they depicted superiority of partnership over non-partnership in the area. For the purpose, questionnaire survey was conducted with 120 farmers in regard to four crops- main season rice, spring rice, lentil and kidney bean and two recommended technologies- improved varieties and the seed priming technology.

Daniela Röttger Agricultural Finance for Smallholder Farmers. Rethinking Traditional Microfinance Risk and Cost Management Approaches

Even though traditional microfinance has successfully paved the way for offering financial services to low-income populations without traditional collateral, many microfinance institutions (MFIs) are still reluctant to move into rural areas and agricultural finance, due to the perceived high risks and costs.Daniela Röttger's research demonstrates how MFIs can mitigate risks and costs of lending to smallholder farmers by using a combination of proven traditional microfinance mechanisms while adapting specific loan features and lending mechanisms to the particularities of smallholder agriculture. She systematically compares traditional microfinance risk management mechanisms with agricultural microfinance approaches and identifies successful strategies. For this purpose, eight MFIs providing agricultural finance to smallholder farmers in four countries in East and West Africa (Uganda, Kenya, Benin, Cameroon) were interviewed and their loan features and agricultural lending mechanism were analyzed.The study shows that MFIs can successfully serve smallholder farmers in rural areas. However, the extent of adaptations is reason enough not to commit to such an endeavor lightly. A strong commitment combined with sound in-house knowledge of agricultural value chains and the flexibility to adapt loan terms and lending procedures to the particularities of agriculture are needed to successfully develop and sustain agricultural microfinance.

Research Paper (postgraduate) from the year 2011 in the subject Business economics - Trade and Distribution, , language: English, abstract: When World Trade Organisation (WTO) brought agricultural trade in its domain there was great expectation that trade of agricultural items will improve and masses will gain from it through greater market access and better prices particularly to the developing nations. But at the same time there was fear among the developing nations that foul play of some developed nations may have negative impact on market access and better prices for their produce. The present paper analyses the Indian concerns in this respect. It is found that the negative impact of WTO on agricultural commodities exports as it was thought is not a valid case for India. India's agricultural items have got a due respect in international market. Not only the quantity of export has increased but also there is improvement in the prices of agricultural items. Non traditional agricultural items have got greater market access and better prices followed by traditional items and items of future potential.

Research Paper (postgraduate) from the year 2014 in the subject Business economics - Banking, Stock Exchanges, Insurance, Accounting, grade: A, Atlantic International University (School of Business and Economics), course: Ph.D. Economics, language: English, abstract: Electronic banking (e-banking) has brought about a revolution in the functioning of banks as it offers major opportunities to banks and their customers. This has made the transition to electronic banking a necessity for banks in order to be viable. Despite its benefits, developing countries still lag behind in the adoption of electronic banking. This study therefore seeks to examine the adoption of e-banking in the Ghanaian banking industry with Guaranty Trust Bank Ghana Limited (GTBank) as the case study to identify the benefits, challenges and critical success factors for the adoption of e-banking in the Ghanaian banking industry. The research made use of questionnaires and interviews to collect data from staff and customers of GTBank. The results of the study indicated that e-banking adoption was a business strategy taken by the bank in response to customer needs and the changing marketing trends in the banking industry. The benefits, challenges and critical success factors of e-banking are also identified and discussed. From the study it is obvious that tremendous benefitssuch as revenue generation, improvement in productivity and efficiency in service delivery and cost savings were derived from e-banking. Th...

Gain a holistic view of agricultural (re)insurance and capital market risk transfer Increasing agricultural production and food security remain key challenges for mankind. In order to meet global food demand, the Food and Agriculture Organisation estimates that production has to increase by 50% by 2050 and requires large investments. Agricultural insurance and financial instruments have been an integral part to advancing productivity and are becoming more important in increasingly globalized and specialized agricultural supply chains in the wake of potentially more frequent and severe natural disasters in today’s key producing markets. Underwriting, pricing and transferring agricultural risks is complex and requires a solid understanding of the production system, exposure, perils and the most suitable products, which vastly differ among developed and developing markets. In the last decade, new insurance schemes in emerging agricultural markets have greatly contributed to the large growth of the industry from a premium volume of US$10.1 billion (2006) to US$30.7 billion (2017). This growth is bound to continue as insurance penetration and exposure increase and new schemes are being developed. Agricultural (re)insurance has become a cornerstone of sovereign disaster risk financing frameworks. Agricultural Risk Transfer introduces the main concepts of agricultural (re)insurance and capital market risk transfer that are discussed through industry case studies. It also discusses best industry practices for all main insurance products for crop, livestock, aquaculture and forestry risks including risk assessment, underwriting, pricing, modelling and loss adjustment. Describes agricultural production risks and risk management approaches Covers risk transfer of production and financial risks through insurance and financial instruments Introduces modelling concepts for the main perils and key data sources that support risk transfer through indemnity- and index-based products Describes risk pricing and underwriting approaches for crop, livestock, aquaculture and forestry exposure in developed and developing agricultural systems Become familiar with risk transfer concepts to reinsurance and capital markets Get to know the current market landscape and main risk transfer products for individual producers, agribusinesses and governments through theory and comprehensive industry case studies Through Agricultural Risk Transfer, you’ll gain a holistic view of agricultural (re)insurance and capital market solutions which will support better underwriting, more structured product development and improved risk transfer.
