Abstract

This paper examines the factors that impact the time deposits in Turkey by using the linear regression analysis. There are lots of elements which affect the time deposits. In my regression model, I used some of them such as; exchange rate, interest rate, consumer price index, wholesale price index and gold prices. These are my independent variables whereas time deposit is my dependent variable. I also adjusted the US Dollar/ Turkish Lira exchange rate because Turkey started using The New Turkish Lira by dropping 6 zeros from the currency Turkish Lira on 01.01.2005. The reference of all variables is http://evds.tcmb.gov.tr/ Meanings of the variables as follows;

Time Deposit( TD): Annually equivalent of monthly time deposits traded in banks.
Exchange Rate (ET): New Turkish Lira equivalent of the average dollar exchange rate during the year.
Interest Rate (IT): Annually equivalent of weighted 12-month term deposits interest rate. Wholesale Price Index (WPI): Annually percentage changes in wholesale price index.
Consumer Price Index (CPI ) : : Annually percentage changes in consumer price index.
Gold Price (GP) : New Turkish Lira equivalent of the average gold price during the year.

Variables are monthly data which contains 60 months from January 1998 to December 2002. Financial market in Turkey have started to get increased recently. After crisis, people began trusting the banking system and tried to gain more interest. This laid people to put out at interest their money. Time deposit is one of the most preferred ways by people to get interest on money. There are some factors affect…...

...relationship between family socio-economic status (SES) and the academic performance of children is well established in sociological research.2 While there is disagreement over how best to measure SES, most studies indicate that children from low SES families do not perform as well as they potentially could at school compared to children from high SES families (Graetz, 1995). Most studies, however, compare students from across all SES backgrounds to reach the conclusion that low SES adversely affects a range of educational outcomes. Another important dimension, however, is the factors that may influence educational outcomes within particular SES bands. This paper presents data on the educational performance of children from financially disadvantaged backgrounds and examines its variation as affected by traditional measures of SES as well as by a range of other family, individual and contextual factors. STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM The purpose of this study is to know the problems encountered by the Grade Seven students of Dona Aurora National High School and the effects of these problems on their academic performance in school. More specifically, the investigation seeks to answer the following questions: 1. Do the following problem areas affect the academic performance of the students? a. Family b. Academics c.

...earns for a period of learning has been done. It is believed that a grade is a primary factor that indicates of such learning. If a student earns high grades it is concluded that they may also have learned a lot while low grades indicate lesser learning. However, many experiences and studies found out that there are also several factors that would affect the grades. Not a single factor can be definitely pointed out as predicting grades. It has been interplay of so many factors – gender, IQ, study habits, age, year level, parent’s educational attainment, social status, number of siblings, birth order, etc. In fact, almost all of existing environmental and personal factors are a variable of academic performance. However, at this point in time, the researcher would like to investigate the possible relationship of study habits and the factors affecting it to the academic achievement of under secondary student of Jaime G. Espena High School. The investigation of on this area thus becomes a real and compelling motivation for the researcher to conduct this study.

...Factors Affecting College Students’ Motivation A thesis submitted in partial fulfilment of requirements for the College of Arts and Sciences Major in Psychology By Imelda Tolentino Josan Alejandra Valle Charize Faith Laciste Mirriam Calimlim Arellano University-Pasig September, 2013 Chapter I Introduction Studying is said to be the primary key to achieve academic excellence, but what factors really driven students to study? Others might say that fears motivate students while others might claim that you should give them tough classes and they will pull through. Some teaching faculty would say that students are motivated because of their personal goals in life. Yes, you could ask everyone but they would just answer in different opinions. The disagreement about the sources of student motivation makes the question of academic motivation sound a great deal like that of workplace motivation. Management theory abounds with contradictory theories about what makes employees work. Maslow (1968) argued that needs drive behaviour, and that workplace (and, presumably, academic) motivation is determined by the level of the needs hierarchy at which the individual is operating. McClelland (1966) claimed instead that motivation is driven by an innate need to achieve, and Herzberg (1959) proposed that the content of the jobs themselves was the source of the elusive employee motivation. The purpose of this research was to align explanations for student motivation with classical......

But, judgments of the students’ academic performance can’t be measured hundred percent for there are multiple factors that arise when it comes to studies. These facets need or should be considered for a better understanding of the students’ performances in school. Researchers have found out that determinant “of learners’ performance has been the subject of ongoing debate among educators, academic and policy makers. Various factors affect students in many ways under different circumstances. These factors take in socio-economic, psychological, emotional, and environmental aspects. Different people come from varied backgrounds- not everyone can afford school fees, for example, and therefore some may not attend school properly because of such reasons. Family problems brought principal impact in studies also. These may affect students’ academic performance at the end of the day. Smoking, alcohol, over-sleeping and stress all have a great consequence on the students’ academic performance (Pat and Tyles). Behavior such as smoking and drug usage may impact the school performance as these interfere with brain functioning. Stress has also been found to interfere significantly with performance. Many factors can cause stress, including financial constraints, child abuse, parental neglect, irresponsibility and divorce, among others. These stresses can lead to self –destructive behavioral patterns......

...institutions in Kenya through licensing and supervision. The Act enables Deposit taking micro finance institutions licensed by the Central Bank of Kenya to mobilize savings from the general public, thus promoting competition, efficiency and access. The main goal of micro finance institutions (MFIs) is to operate profitably in order to maintain their stability and improve growth and sustainability. Most MFIs in Kenya started as not-for profit organizations like NGOs (non-Governmental Organizations), credit unions and other financial cooperatives; and state-owned development and postal savings banks. The delivery of micro finance services to the poor in Kenya is one of the main effective instruments of ensuring food security, reducing poverty and increasing employment in both urban and rural areas. The overriding objective of MFI in Kenya is to provide a broad range of microfinance services to large numbers of poor households. This can only be realized by developing capable and sustainable financial institutions. In Kenyan context, there are two institutions that are involved in delivering financial services to the poor. _____________________________________________________________________________________ 1 Robert Peck Christen, Richard Rosenberg and Veena Jayadara Financial Institutions with a double-bottom line; implications for the future of micro finance.

Maria is known for globally competitive agriculturists, teachers, and engineers which is shown in their high performances in board examinations. Students in this university even came from different towns providing the institution's fame and quality. Their performance and grade also have a huge impact on this result. For a long time, this has been the image of Pangasinan State University Sta. Maria. However, for the past few years, slashing, and transferring to other schools became major problems of students because of their failing grades are increasing in number. A failing grade is defined as a grade lower than the passing grade of mark in an examination, class, or course of study. It is the rate of students' weakness apart from a passing grade is proof of how low an IQ level of a student is. When they hear the term failing grade, oftentimes, they would think that it is because a student is not studying well, or is not that good academically. With this circumstance comes slashing or being removed from the course a student is taking. In other cases, failing grades of students may also give negative image on the university or school itself. Based on the other researchers, there are two kinds of impact of having failing grade. The first one is the negative action which can lead to negative result. This could result in the student's frustration in his or her life. The student may be......

...University of Sydney ABSTRACT Supply chain performance is a rapidly developing area of research. Many companies are trying to find tools for enhancing performance measures in response to turbulent business markets and for efficiently controlling their business activities. Little empirical research has been conducted on the performance of retail supply chain in Taiwan and other Asian countries. Two factors affecting current retail supply chains, buyer-supplier relationships and purchasing processes, and their antecedents that are relevant to this unique cultural environment will be investigated. The objectives of this research are: (1) to identify the determinants affecting the performance of the supply chain at the retail level; (2) to define the antecedents related to each determinant; and (3) to present the conceptual model for this particular context. This research will contribute by presenting a conceptual model for supply chain performance that is relevant to small and mediumsized businesses that predominate Taiwan. INTRODUCTION Supply chain management (SCM) is “a key strategic factor for increasing organizational effectiveness and for better realization of organizational goals such as enhanced competitiveness, better customer care and increased profitability” (Gunasekaran et al. 2001, p. 71). The major goals of SCM are to minimize non-value-added activities and associated investment cost and operating cost, increase customer responsiveness and flexibility in the supply......

As I moved closer to view the item, I was sure the accessory belonged to one of the popular designers and was quite expensive. Once I reached the shelf were the item was display; I saw the designer name “Heaven’s Creations”; an unknown product designer. The necklace was quite a show stopper, extraordinary looking and not to mention affordable. The off-brand’ designer’s line is unique because the pieces are all “one of a kind”--no replicas However, I was informed that the designer does design commission jewelry. I most say that if all future accessory ornaments of the unknown designer’s are as exquisite and show stopping as this leather necklace, the designer will not be off-brand for long. Jewelry, Apparel and Accessories products fall into the category of high involvement/emotions. These are products for which the buyer is prepared to spend considerable time and effort in searching. When marketing this jewelry line, I am going mimic existing campaigns as jewelry is a billion-dollar industry employing millions of people around the world, and costume jewelry has a large piece of this pie...

...Factors Affect The Academic Performance Of Selected Working Student Chapter 1 THE PROBLEM AND ITS BACKGROUND Introduction / Background of the Study Student jobs have become a sort of trend among students around the world, who want to work while they are studying. In short, the term that suits this trend is 'Earn and Learn' policy. Other reason why student jobs are popular among students is they help to cope up with the constant increase in tuition fees, and a way to afford further educations. The problem has been developed with the question as to how the corresponding workloads and required working hours of working students affect their academic performance at University of Caloocan- Camarin Campus. As a researcher, the main purpose of the study is to know the factors that affect the academic performance of working students. In addition, this paper aims to provide encouragement and motivation to all students especially those who are financially distressed to pursue and finish a college degree in order to be competitive in the future and be able to realize their goals and aspirations.

...COPING MECHANISM Task-oriented / problem-focused coping Problem focused coping also referred to active coping involves controlling managing stress by directly altering situations Edward, 1999. It alters either the environment itself the environment interacts. This type reaction of coping is more stressor and it tends to be used by the people with high score on the big fire personality super factor conscientiousness Watson & Hubbar, 1996. Emotion-oriented / emotion-focused coping In contrast, emotion coping strategies involves the individual’s attempts to regulate emotional responses to, and decrease the effects of a stressful situation Edwards, 1999. This coping strategy can change a person’s emotional response to the stressor. This type of coping usually decreases arousal. People are likely to adopt emotion-focused coping itself and so they must alter their perception of, or responses to, the stressors. Studies with male participants have indicated that those perceiving less control over events are less likely to use problem-focused strategies involving direct actions and more likely to use emotion-focused strategies such as distraction and emotion support David&Sals, 1999. If he doesn’t think anything he does at work ultimately affects whether he gets did off, he is less likely to use active coping strategies. Another type of emotion-focused is venting. Penne baker, 1989 asked a group of college students to write for twenty (20) minutes, a day of for four......

Factors Affecting Failing Grades

...What are factors affecting academic performance? Answer: Many, many factors can affect academic performance, which means how a person does on schoolwork. The physical condition of the student has a great deal to do with that person's ability to do a good a good job on anything and to understand anything. For example, if the student has poor eyesight, he or she might not be able to read well. If the student has a hearing impairment, he or she might not be able to listen to and understand instructions. If the student has a disease, it might impair his or her ability to do the required work. A student's socio-economic status (SES) can affect his or her ability to perform well academically. Students with less money might not be able to purchase school supplies that could help them with their work -- rulers, paper, pens, computers, books, etc. Students with less money might not visit their doctors and dentists very often and might suffer from undiagnosed illnesses or dental problems that cause pain or otherwise impair the student's ability to perform well. Students with less money might have household responsibilities that wealthier students do not have -- babysitting for younger kids while the parents work second and third jobs, working for money outside of school, or spending homework time waiting in line for food at a food shelter. Low SES students might live in difficult conditions without electricity or water, and might have to go away from home to take a shower, brush......
