ABSTRACT

Agency banking is a new banking concept introduced in Kenya by the Central Bank (CBK). The main objective is to increase financial services outreach and to promote financial inclusion to the un-banked and under-banked population without risking the safety and soundness of the banking system. The concept is also geared towards encouraging financial institutions to use agents in the provision of banking services so as to reduce the cost of financial services and to foster financial inclusion, reach and depth. Commercial Banks worldwide offer similar kinds of services, but they could provide differences in terms of service quality. This paper analyzes past studies regarding service quality improvement in the agency banking sector. The continuing trend to a model of service quality improvement, from personnel counter services to electronic services, will be demonstrated. Improved service quality should be adopted to maintain the core competence and this research will contribute towards knowledge and background for banks to apply these findings to better shape and focus their positions in the market and also to provide service quality to customers through the agency banking concept.

Introduction
From 1 July 1999, agencies that are subject to the FMA Act1 have been responsible for their own agency banking arrangements. The arrangements have been introduced to enable FMA Act agencies to establish banking service arrangements with the bank2 of their choice. In accordance with Australian Government policy, agencies are required to market test for the delivery of transactional banking services.
In the context of this agency banking initiative, ‘market testing’ is the process whereby an agency communicates their banking services requirements to multiple suppliers in the banking industry and seek competitive tenders for the provision of these services. This…...

Black gunpowder was not invented till the end of the ninth century and was first used to make fireworks, and later the lighting of fireworks became a Chinese tradition to celebrate festivals. The gunpowder was used in weapons at the end of the 10th Century, when firearms such as exploding arrows heads, flintlock rifles and cannon became available on a large scale. During the 18th century when Western powers invaded China, the Chinese troops were still using flintlock rifles and cannons. At the end of the 14th century a Chinese named Wan Hu fitted a chair with 47 prototype self-made rockets and held a large kite in his hands. His plan was to fly into space and then float back down to the Earth using the kite. The rockets ended up exploding and killing Wan Hu but in his honor In the 1970s, the International Astronomical Union named a lunar crater......

The topic that I choose to address about political issue is about “Political Corruption as Duplicitous Exclusion”. Addressing this issue that I choose can be hard to write about if you don’t have enough evidence to support and prove your stories. Corruption in politics is very popular in every Country. First, I would gather all the information that are important about my topic and I will do researching in different reliable website to get some more information about the issue that I am going to write to my newspaper website. Second, creating a thesis, creating thesis for my topic is important because this will help me to fallow and stay focus on my topic.

In some cases, however, the culture and structure can change swiftly, causing political and power struggles within the organization. Consider the effects when two organizations combine their separate cultures and structures during a merger. For example, the largest merger in history took place in 2001 when Time Warner acquired AOL. At the time, the $111 billion merger was hailed as visionary in its combination of old media and the new online media. However, the massive size of the merger, the differences in corporate cultures, and intense competition in the Internet advertising business conspired to lessen the potential payoff from the merger. In fact, Time Warner’s stock fell almost 80 percent after the merger. In 2009, Time Warner decided to begin the process of spinning off AOL as a separate company. The move, which came on the heels of Time Warner’s spinoff of Time Warner Cable, was designed to refocus Time Warner’s efforts on its core cable networks and magazines.6 The Customer Environment In the second part of the situation analysis, the marketing manager must examine......

...procedures that dramatically improved things. As a result, teams seemed to be meeting their deadlines (mainly because schedules were padded by what I considered astounding amounts) and quality improved (by creating a separate test group that would spend months testing after a product was handed over to them). For her efforts in solving these problems, Katherine had been promoted and was now running what was essentially a project management office (PMO). As she told me more about her background and about how she had previously helped her company by introducing various process improvements, I was sure I had found an ally in transitioning her division to Scrum. Instead, what I found was someone The Hows and Whys of Individual Resistance 111 who had built herself a very nice empire (through good effort directed at earlier company goals). She was now so enamored of her current status, the number of people reporting to her, and her level of prestige that she was unwilling to consider further changes. Moses could have come down from the mountaintop with the ideal process engraved on stone tablets, and Katherine would have resisted. Katherine, like other diehards, was opposed to Scrum not because of anything inherent in it but because she did not want to let go of the current state. She was very actively resisting the change but always in ways that allowed her to claim to be supporting it. A common technique of diehards, and one Katherine employed, is to stall the transition......

...English 111 05 March 4, 2014 Homelessness In the U.S. there seems to be a lot of homeless people. Approximately 3.5 million people are likely to experience homelessness in any given year(www.nlchp.org). There are many reasons why people become homeless which are, domestic violence, addiction disorders, lack of jobs, mental and medical health issues, lack of education, and insurance. Some of these problems spiral out of control resulting in the inability to provide for oneself or ones family. In most cases homelessness is rarely caused by one factor but it can happen. Fifty percent of the cities surveyed by the U.S. Conference of Mayors identified domestic violence as a primary cause of homelessness. Approximately sixty three percent of homeless women have experienced domestic violence in their lives (National Coalition for the Homeless). Women generally are scared to ask for help for the fear of the one causing their violence may take it out on the one that helps her so therefore women tend to fend for themselves. Some women think it will ruin their pride to ask for help so they stay until the violence gets so bad they can’t take it anymore. So they choose to be homeless verses asking friends and family for help. Addiction and substance abuse isn’t generally a cause of its own in homelessness but it does happen that way. Most people that have an addiction or substance abuse problem are already homeless but for some people it is a......

...and potassium ions on voltage and time, from which they were able to reconstruct the action potential quantitatively.[29] Hodgkin and Huxley correlated the properties of their mathematical model with discrete ion channels that could exist in several different states, including "open", "closed", and "inactivated". Their hypotheses were confirmed in the mid-1970s and 1980s by Erwin Neher and Bert Sakmann, who developed the technique of patch clamping to examine the conductance states of individual ion channels.[109] In the 21st century, researchers are beginning to understand the structural basis for these conductance states and for the selectivity of channels for their species of ion,[110] through the atomic-resolution crystal structures,[111] fluorescence distance measurements[112] and cryo-electron microscopy studies.[113] Julius Bernstein was also the first to introduce the Nernst equation for resting potential across the membrane; this was generalized by David E. Goldman to the eponymous Goldman equation in 1943.[27] The sodium–potassium pump was identified in 1957[114] and its properties gradually elucidated,[115][116][117] culminating in the determination of its atomic-resolution structure by X-ray crystallography.[118] The crystal structures of related ionic pumps have also been solved, giving a broader view of how these molecular machines work.[119] Quantitative models Main article: Quantitative models of the action potential Equivalent electrical circuit for......

...Assignment 1: Essay HUM 111: World Cultures I Assignment 1: Mummy’s Curse The image of the curse of the mummy instantly conjures up elaborate stories and fantastic discoveries made upon entry into the tomb of King Tutankhamen (King Tut). According to Sayre (2012) “King Tuts tomb was the only tomb discovered that was not destroyed and looted by grave robbers.” In 1922, Howard Carter (a renowned excavator) and his benefactor, the Fifth Earl of Carnarvon, were the first to enter the tomb. According to Luckhurst (2010), the tomb had been uncovered in Carter’s last-chance season of digging in the Valley of the Kings. No new tomb had been discovered for over a decade. In November 1922, they entered the antechamber and the news swept the world. In February 1923, they entered the burial chamber. A sequence of calamitous episodes occurred affecting the men who first entered the tomb. Some of the men became sick and some died. Also, some of their pets died. Some people were using these events to make claims that there was a curse associated with the opening of the tomb. According to Rompalske (2000), the story centered on Lord Carnarvon and Howard Carter, and the hardships they suffered. The first conclusion is an inference that has to do with stories regarding the “curse”. At the opening of the tomb of King Tut, a clay tablet was unearthed in the antechamber, with a warning to keep out of the tomb or else experience a horrible death. According to......

I knew I would not be able to fall asleep again, doesn´t matter how hard I´d try. I hated to get up at an unearthly hour! I rolled out of bed and trudged into the kitchen to have some lemonade. It was still dark outside and the windy weather made the trees outside scratch against my windows. The thought about my nightmare disgusted me. I drank my glass of lemonade at one go. Afterwards I went to the bathroom to get some cold water in my face to refresh up a bit. I looked myself in the eyes in the mirror with dislike, wondering why such nightmares were torturing me night after night. I hated myself for that, but could not help it anyway. All day long at work I was absent and worn out. All I could think about was that I wanted some sleep. I felt like I did not sleep a wink last night. Pictures from the nightmare whirled around in my head like an infinite movie. The whole day was a pure nightmare too, people looked strangely at me like I was a sick person instead of asking how I felt. But on the other hand I would not like to answer if they did anyway. None of their business. That night I lay in my bed and stared around in the room for indefinite time. I felt so tired, but I was afraid of falling asleep to get hunted by nightmares again. I thought about how I could make an end of this riot. I was sick and tired of that......

...Week 1 assignment editorial blog entry April 14, 2012 HUM 111 Global warming has become a great concern amongst many people throughout the world because people are finally starting to realize that through all this horrible pollution we are killing are planet more and more rapidly each and every day. According to ("Global Warming And Climate Changes", 2012) our planet is hotter today than it has been in two thousand years. If the current trends continue, by the end of the century our planet may become too hot for human civilization to live on. We (the U.S.) are driving these climate changes by burning fossil fuels, such as, coal and oil. Coal fired power plants are the one thing that produces the most pollution within the U.S. I admire what the Greenpeace organization does because they are trying to get factories/companies to stop burning coal and other fossil fuels and start a clean energy movement. I think companies need organizations like this to make them realize that their processes are really destroying our planet at a rapid rate and something really needs to be done to conserve some of the natural resources and not destroy our planet so quickly. Not only are America’s coal-burning plants destroying our planet, but they are also making our children sick, poisoning our waters and air, and killing tens of thousands of innocent people every year. Again, according to ("Global Warming And Climate Changes", 2012) over the next few years Greenpeace will be doing a......
