Determinants of Customer Satisfaction of Banking Industry in Bangladesh
Mohammed Belal Uddin,Bilkis Akhter
Pakistan Journal of Commerce and Social Sciences , 2012,
Abstract: This study aims to investigate, through the development and operationalized constructs of service quality, service charge, perceived value, and customer satisfaction; customersatisfaction and its determinants of the banking industry in Bangladesh. An exploratory factor analysis and structural equation modeling was used to analyze data. Measurement model and structural model indicate that service quality and fair service charge both havepositive direct impact on customer satisfaction in a mass service industry (i.e., banking industry). It was further observed that they also have indirect influence on customer satisfaction through perceive value, i.e. perceived value has mediating role betweenquality, charge fairness and satisfaction. Bank managers are recommended to formulate operations and marketing strategies that focus on desires of customers to enhance level of satisfaction.

Abstract: This study seeks to explore customer satisfaction and its influencing factors of the mobile phone operation industry in Bangladesh. Data were collected through a questionnaire survey form a diversified representative sample. An iterated factor analysis with principal component analysis (PCA) and structural equation modeling (SEM) including measurement model and structural model were applied to analyze data. The empirical results demonstrate that service quality and fair price have indirect influence on customer satisfaction of a mass service industry (i.e., mobile phone operators) through perceive value. Perceived value has mediating role between quality, charge fairness and satisfaction. Furthermore, result shows that fair price has positive direct impact on customer satisfaction, whereas, the results did not find any significant direct impact of service quality on customer satisfaction. Mobile phone operators are recommended to formulate operations and marketing strategies that focus on expectations of customers to enhance level of satisfaction. Similar industries may reveal similar relationship features in respect to these relationship constructs, if they are under similar category.

Bilkis Banu,Khurshida Khanom
Journal of Enam Medical College , 2012, DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.3329/jemc.v2i2.12840
Abstract: Background: It is well known that education level of father and mother is an important factor to achieve breastfeeding. But, according to some literature, there is still controversy that education of parents is really a major factor for perceptions of breastfeeding.Objective: To determine the effects of education level of father and mother on perception or knowledge of breastfeeding.Materials and Methods: This descriptive cross sectional study was conducted in the selected areas of Dhaka city amongst all (202) mothers and fathers of the children of 2 years or more than 2 years of age. Data were collected through pretested questionnaire by face to face interview. Data were analyzed by appropriate univariate analysis.Results: Among the study subjects majority of mothers (49.5%) were of secondary and higher secondary levels and fathers (35.6%) were of graduate and above level of education. Educated mothers (secondary 72% and graduate 90.9%) were more likely to give colostrums to their babies than illiterate mothers (38.9%). Although duration of exclusive breastfeeding and breastfeeding were not associated with maternal education, but knowledge on breastfeeding was highly significant (good knowledge) for higher educated parents (mothers 63.6% and fathers 52.8%) as compared to illiterate or low educated parents (P<0.001). Majority of parents got information from doctors/health workers rather than book or other sources regarding usefulness of breast milk.Conclusion: The study reveals that perceptions of breastfeeding are higher in educated parents than illiterate parents. To reach at an ever satisfactory level of breastfeeding practice, more attention and education need to be given amongst the general people.
Impact of Statelessness: Are We Ready to Face?  [PDF]

Open Journal of Social Sciences (JSS) , 2019, DOI: 10.4236/jss.2019.712001
Abstract: Rise in number of stateless people across the world over the years has manifold implications that have been mostly overlooked. Millions of stateless people around the world, who are least visible but most vulnerable group, pose a threat to social harmony and international security. In a state of growing interdependency among States, impact of statelessness may not be confined within the territory of the State concerned. This paper is an endeavour to find out root causes of statelessness based on scholarly literatures and reports on statelessness and identify probable consequences that may derive from rising number of statelessness considering recent facts of statelessness in some Asian countries. This paper also discusses legal frameworks to address statelessness and response of international community to this issue. Finally, this paper discusses responses required to prevent statelessness and to meet the future challenges of statelessness.
Cameroon and the Gender Issue  [PDF]

Advances in Anthropology (AA) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/aa.2017.71004
Abstract: As African states have entered the global trend for women’s emancipation, many have then set up a “national gender policy”. However, that process seems to vary by country and by degree of cultural integration. The purpose of this article is to point out the obstacles blocking the implementation of the gender policy and negatively affect its social appropriation. It raises out the essential innovative mechanisms and argues that the process would need to be driven from the bottom up with direct involvement of target groups. From an anthropological perspective this article regarded at the Cameroon’s situation. So, an ethnographic study carried on during the recent years in Cameroon allowed questioning the relationships between central and decentralised State services, associative groups and political parties. As a matter of result it concludes that there is a need of reshaping those deontic links so as to guarantee that the gender policy document will not end up being just a theoretical text kept in closets. Concerning political parties they should relayed the promotion of the national gender policy. Furthermore strategic partnerships between State services and associative groups should be more coherent as well.
Efecto Macklin en el neumomediastino espontáneo pediátrico
Bilkis,Manuel D; Monteverde,Ezequiel;
Archivos argentinos de pediatr?-a , 2010,
Abstract: pneumomediastinum is defined as the presence of air in the mediastinum, and may be secondary to trauma or spontaneous. we present the case of a four-year old patient with a spontaneous pneumomediastinum secondary to a violent cough episode, presumably due to a simple cold. the presence of cervical pain, swelling and crepitus warned the pediatrician, who ordered the patient admission. diagnosis was confirmed by chest and neck plane x-rays. the disorder had a short duration and favorable outcome with no specific treatment aside from symptomatic. ct scan performed at admission revealed an air migration through the perivasculobronchial sheath towards the mediastinum, the so-called "macklin effect". this is the first description of this entity in pediatrics.

Positioning (POS) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/pos.2013.41007

This paper describes GPS Workstation, a general purpose navigation software which requires a low-cost GPS connected to the computer. It provides an integrated display of positioning data along with satellite positions, their signal strengths and data quality parameters. The software can be used for static point averaging of GPS data to get more precise positioning and real-time mapping of roads and tracks. It supports output of data in keyhole markup language (KML) as well as other formats for visualization of acquired data on Google Earth and geographic information systems. It can also be used to determine geo-referencing errors in Google Earth imagery for an area and can compensate the error by applying a constant X, Y shift. The software is available for distribution under the free software license.

Zobaida AKHTER
The Turkish Online Journal of Distance Education , 2008,
Abstract: ABSTRACT In the socio-economic context of Bangladesh, involvement of women in agriculture is very important. It would be easier to control rural-urban migration by engaging women in agricultural activities to a greater extent. Women play a vital role in agricultural production throughout the Bangladesh, making a significant contribution to the basic productivity of their communities. The paper argues that efforts to promote women in farming are confronted by challenges including poverty, misconception regarding education, training, farming etc. The paper also states that the utilization and development of distance education would effectively address the problem of education and training aimed at rural women.
