Trade Deficit, Foreign Direct Investment and Economic Growth “Evidences from Rwanda” (2000Q1-2015Q4)
Author(s): Eric Simbi
The theoretical and empirical connections between trade deficits and foreign direct investments’ effects on economic growth have been discussed in economics for a long time; however this paper used an econometric investigation in order to assess the statistical effect of both variables on economic growth of Rwanda for the period of 2000Q1-2015Q4.This study used Co- integration technique and Vector error correction model(VECM) where we observed one co- integrating equation which normalized the coefficient of log real gross domestic product. By applying VECM, the speed of adjustment of the model was 56% with an error correction coefficient of 0.056109. In addition, the empirical findings also confirmed the long run negative effects of trade deficits and both short& long run positive effects of foreign direct investments on economic growth of Rwanda. However foreign direct investments did not generate economic growth in most efficient manner way despite its short run causality. The government of Rwanda may continue to review and address new policies towards net export and foreign direct investment improvement.

The Digital Divide Hindering E-learning in Zambia
Author(s): Francis Mukosa, Burton Mweemba
This paper focuses mainly on the digital divide and how it is hindering eLearning in Zambia. The paper brings out several challenges that the Education sector is facing in implementing eLearning programs. The findings indicate that lack of adequate investment in ICT infrastructure has led to the high cost of internet services and this has impacted on the expansion of eLearning programs. The quality of internet in Zambia is also a huge challenge in delivering eLearning especially that attitudes and cultural issues are still barriers that need to be broken down in order for eLearning to completely succeed. The findings also revealed that Africa has received very little investment in ICT and that this impacts negatively on integration of eLearning in learning institutions. The literature review is drawn from different authors and draws a conclusion that there is need to improve investment in the ICT sector in Zambia in order to enhance the growth of eLearning.

An Intelligent Evaluation of Enterprise System
Author(s): UmohMfreke E, Enoch.O.Nwachukwu
Nowadays, individuals, organizations depend largely on software systems for smooth running of their businesses, unfortunately, most of the organizations fail to realize their set goal, due to software failure and malfunctioning. The existing system for software evaluation is limited by lack of capabilities to handle imprecise knowledge, lack of capability to learn from previous data and make a valid decision. This research is motivated by the need to overcome these limitations by the integration of Adaptive Neuro-Fuzzy Inference System (ANFIS) to optimize the software performance evaluation by classifying, training and quantifying software quality attributes. We employed back propagation and hybrid learning approach in training our network. The training, testing and checking Root mean Square Error(RMSE) values of 0.026347, 0.026073, and 0.025819 respectively were observed in the hybrid learning process at 100 epochs. ANFIS processes are faster and have a minimal error of 0.026344 at 100 epochs. Average error of 0.047283 was observed in back propagation as against the average error of 0.024642 with hybrid learning at 300 epochs. Therefore, ANFIS evaluation with hybrid learning performed better than back propagation.

Identifying Major Causes, Effects and Approaches to Curbing Crimes in South-Western Nigeria
Author(s): Chris I. Nwagboso, Emmanuel E.Etim
The thrust of this study was to identify the major causes and effects of crimes in South-Western Nigeria. It was discovered that the once peaceful region of the country is gradually becoming the crime capital, losing lives and properties worth millions on yearly basis to the recurrent cases of crimes. Data were generated from both primary and secondary sources and tested with Pearson Product Moments Correlation Coefficient at 0.01 level of significance, through the use of SPSS. Findings revealed that there is a positive correlation between unresponsive government and increase crimes in South-Western Nigeria which has led to business shutdown, poor economic development among others. The study concludes that if adequate measures to curb these crimes are not urgently taken, more lives will be lost, businesses will continue to foldup, investors will withdraw their investments, poverty and hunger will take over and life will become more unbearable for the common man. Some of the recommendations of this study includes; youth empowerment, job creation, resource control, meeting of students’ demands and the strengthening of the Nigerian educational systems at all levels, as well as provisions for good ranching systems and laws to protect both herdsmen and farmers within the region.

We are making this project to plant seeds in afforested area where humans are not able to plant each and every seed by hands. Hence to reduce this fact we are making a drone (AUAVFA) which has a capability of plant seed very fast as compare to human. Buyer of the drone only need to set a path via using mobile application then it will go on to that location and drop one seed it is very quick process. Our drone will come back to our location after all dropping of all seed and in case of failure by any reason buyer can get an alert and drone will automatically land itself. This is our AUAVFA.

Ultrasonic Pulse Velocity Assessment of Cement Stabilized Soil
Author(s): Vinay M, Vinay A, A V Pradeep Kumar
Black cotton soil which is one of the major soil deposits which accounts for more than 50% of soil in India and is highly problematic because of its property of higher degree of swelling and shrinkage. These soils are used in sub grade of pavement and also in construction of structures. Hence in order to improve the properties of such soils many methods are available like soil stabilization, soil replacement, moisture control etc. In recent years, soil stabilization by using various minerals like quarry dust, saw dust, copper dust, cement and fly ash were most commonly used. In the present study cement is used as admixture and NDT was performed on clayey soil compacted by rolling compactor cum rut analyzer. The experiment was conducted with varying proportions of cement and the relation between maximum dry density, moisture content, pulse velocity etc were determined. lab test specimens were prepared and wave velocity was measured for each of the compacted stabilized specimen. in this paper the Maximum dry density of the soil is related with the obtained velocity and thus real time density is obtained in field by simple ultrasonic pulse velocity test.

Heavy Metal Assessment in the Groundwater of Baran District, Rajasthan, India
Author(s): Deepmala Meena, Ram Bilas Meena
Heavy metals in groundwater were analyzed and their sources and impacts were identified using multivariate statistical tools and risk assessment. Three significant factors were extracted by factor analysis (FA), explaining 75.69% of total variance. These factors were in turn described by the clusters C3, C2 and C1, respectively, resulting from the cluster analysis (CA). Factor analysis and cluster analysis revealed significant anthropogenic contributions and water-rock interaction effects of the metals in groundwater. The mean values of heavy metal evaluation index (HEI) and degree of contamination (Cdeg) indices indicated that the groundwater samples were contaminated with high degree of pollution by cadmium (Cd) and lead (Pb). The hazard quotients (via ingestion) of Cd and Pb were found to be higher than the safe limits, posing threat to the consumers. However, no risk related to the dermal contact was associated with the measured metal levels. The present investigation explains Heavy Metal Assessment in the Groundwater of Baran District, Rajasthan, India.
