The main purpose of this study is to examine the casual model and explain the relationship of opportunism, conflict, trust, commitment, satisfaction, and loyalty between hospitals and their suppliers. A survey is conducted of local community hospitals, regional hospitals and medical centers in Taiwan. Primary data is gathered using a questionnaire; this study investigates hospitals’ procurement staffs that are responsible for selecting medical device suppliers. The sample consists of 481 valid responses for applying structural equation modeling (SEM) in this research. The study confirms almost all hypothesized associations between the constructs examined, indicating that the supplier’s opportunistic behavior reduces trust and generates conflict. According to the significant mediation effect, showed that commitment plays a mediated role between trust and satisfaction, and satisfaction is a mediated factor to loyalty. Thereby displaying trust in addition to being an important factor in t
The study examined the cost and return of sheep fattening in Gombi Local Area of Adamawa State, it focus on profitability of the sheep fattening in the study area and factors militating against sheep in the sheep fattening in the area. Data were collected from a random sample of 90 sheep fatteners by means of snow ball sampling technique to which questionnaires were administered. The data were analyzed using descriptive statistics to describe the constraint associated with sheep fattening and Gross Margin was used to determine the profitability of sheep fattening . The major problems facing the farmers include high cost of feeds, inadequate credit facilities, and high cost of medication. A policy and research emphasis should be geared toward feeds production at affordable price to the fatteners and fatteners should be educated on how to formulate local feeds to reduce cost and access to feeds for better efficiency
Abstract- This study examines the constraints and growth potentials of micro and small enterprises. To undertake this study primary data were collected through well-structured and self-administered questionnaire to a sample of 85 micro and small-scale enterprises operated in Mekelle City. In order to explore the relationship between the explanatory variables with the dependent variable different econometric models like multiple regression to examine the growth of MSEs is associated with diffrent constraints and logit model to analyzes how and to what extent the operators’ socio-economics characterstics affect the income growth potential of enterprises were applied. The study result indicated that micro and small enterprises employment growth was significantly affected by constraints like crrent capital, current employment level, start up employment level, access to business services, and by motivation of the enterprises. Moreover, age,sex, experience access to finance
A new nano ceramic materialBSFT was prepared via a conventional solid state reaction technique and UV-VIS analysis of the sample was carried to study the optical properties. The band gap energy of the sample shows marked variation in their values with the increase in temperature. Tunable band gaps can be obtained by varying annealing temperatures. An exponentially varying absorption edge was observed and explained in terms of the Urbach’s tail. The refractive index was calculated and the results obtained also showed a systematic variation with temperature. The EDX measurements confirmed the composition of the sample.

Theileriosis is a bovine haemoprotozoal infection caused by Theileria species. It is a tick transmitted haemoparasite and the disease can develop as clinical or subclinical infections. This study was carried out in order to determine Theileria infection by Polymerase Chain Reaction in cattle and buffaloes in a National Livestock Development Board farm at Polonnaruwa, Sri Lanka. Forty-one blood samples were collected from the herd of diseased and non diseased cattle and buffaloes. Packed cell volume of each blood sample was analyzed using microcenrifugation which revealed that 85.7% (18/21) cattle and 20% (4/20) buffaloes had PCV values below the average
