It is hypothesized that an increase in international student enrollment tends to have a positive impact on US real gross domestic product. It is also hypothesized that an increase in economic impact of international students has a positive impact on the US real gross domestic product. A regression model is formulated that consists of percentage increase in real gross domestic product (economic growth rate) as the dependent variable. The independent variables used in the regression model are annual percentage increase in international student enrollments in the US and the annual percentage increase in economic impact of the international students in the US. Data is collected from 2009 to 2015 from the Bureau of Economic Analysis and NAFSA.&nbsp; It is important to analyze the rationale as to why highly skilled immigration is vital for promotion of entrepreneurship and innovation in the US economy. The current administration is trying to undermine the positive impact of highly skilled immigration on the US economy. The issue is critically important in the prevailing political climate in the US economy. An attempt is also made to formulate strategies that would help in mitigating negative outcomes such as potential declines in revenues for US universities as well as decline in research and grant funding that would arise due to decrease in international student enrolments.</p> Dr. Abhijeet Bhattacharya Copyright (c) 2020 International Journal of Engineering and Management Research https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 http://www.ijemr.net/ojs/index.php/ojs/article/view/472 Wed, 03 Jun 2020 00:00:00 +0530 Super Fair Dominating Set in the Cartesian Product of Graphs http://www.ijemr.net/ojs/index.php/ojs/article/view/473 <p>In this paper, we characterize the super fair dominating set in the Cartesian product of two graphs and give some important results.</p> Glenna T.

Numerous of home appliance companies have put in much effort to solve this problem but there is still large room for further improvements especially in the rinse and the spin cycles of the washing machine. This work illustrates the performances of a multi-body modelled of washing machines realized with the aim to analyze the vibrational acoustic emission. An experimental measurement has been carried out using a digital sound level meter (SLM) to determine the overall noise produced by four different models of automated washing machines with a view of noting the model that has the highest sound pressure level during the three different cycles (the wash, rinse and spin). Result shows that all the machines produced their highest noise during the spinning cycle. Out of the four different model considered. IPSO HF: 304 has the highest sound level of 99.62dB during its spin cycle when maximum load of 30Kg was applied, followed by Imesa RC 23 with a 96.13dB. On the other hands, LG: Direct Drive 13 has the least sound pressure level of 84.75dB. With this knowledge in mind, one can advise a buyer which model to purchase from the market and if an operator must use the machine, how long he can operate such machine without health challenges.</p> Asiya E.

The composition of indirect tax revenue of the Government has undergone a drastic change during the last two decades. Post implementation of the GST Act, the levy of Central Excise has been restricted to petroleum and tobacco products and GST has evolved as the major contributor to the indirect tax revenue collections followed by the Customs Duty. Comparative analysis of indirect tax collections of the Central Government with respect to its growth, share in gross tax revenue, percentage of GDP and composition has been done for the period from 2000-01 to 2019-20. The current study has revealed the growth rate of indirect taxes has not only been uneven but also declined during the year 2001-02, 2008-09 and 2009-10. The share of indirect tax in the gross tax revenue has also gradually declined from 63% in 2000-01 to 46% in 2019-20%.&nbsp; The indirect tax-GDP ratio has remained stagnant in the range of 3.5 to 5.5 % during the last two decades.</p> Sanjib Ghimire Copyright (c) 2020 International Journal of Engineering and Management Research https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 http://www.ijemr.net/ojs/index.php/ojs/article/view/475 Wed, 03 Jun 2020 00:00:00 +0530 Correlation of Fibonacci Sequence and Golden Ratio With its Applications in Engineering and Science http://www.ijemr.net/ojs/index.php/ojs/article/view/476 <p>We have discussed in this elucidation paper about correlation of Fibonacci sequence and golden ratio with its applications in engineering and science. One of the most recurring sequences in nature is the Fibonacci sequence. As the sequence was explored, it was found out that this sequence led to the golden ratio. This study tried to apply the concept of Fibonacci and golden ratio to maximize efficiency of our live life. We consider self-similar curve like golden spiral in whose nature their beauty is much admired. The explanations show that source of Fibonacci numbers and how to exist Fibonacci numbers in the world we live. The mathematical theories of Fibonacci numbers and golden ratio gives the source of many new ideas in Mathematics, Chemistry, Civil engineering, Architecture, Automobile engineering, Philosophy, Botanic and biology, Electrical engineering, Computer science and engineering, Mechanical engineering, Communication systems, Mathematical education as well as theoretical physics and physics of high energy particles [1].</p> Anil.D.Chavan, Chetan.V.Suryawanshi Copyright (c) 2020 International Journal of Engineering and Management Research https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 http://www.ijemr.net/ojs/index.php/ojs/article/view/476 Wed, 03 Jun 2020 00:00:00 +0530 Job Anxiety and Occupational Stress among Employees of IT Sector: Impact on their Attitude towards Management http://www.ijemr.net/ojs/index.php/ojs/article/view/477 <p>Information technology is the fastest growing sector in the country and the highest employer in the private sector. The fast-paced technological changes, the need to keep up with it and the huge workload puts enormous demands on the employees. They experience anxiety and stress at the workplace which affects, positively and negatively, their attitude towards their job and management. Hence, the study investigated the relationship between anxiety and stress experienced by the employees at the workplace and how each factor affects their attitude towards their management respectively. Since the study covered both male and female employees, hence similar nature of relationship between the variables was also examined separately for each gender</p> <p>For this ex-post facto research, a convenience sample of 200 respondents through stratified sampling technique was chosen in 2019 from various IT firms in Hyderabad. The age of the respondents was between 24-36 years. The data for analysis was collected through 3 scales/ index viz.<em> 1) Job Anxiety Scale by Dr. A. K. Srivastava 2) Occupational Stress Index </em>by A K Srivastav and A P Singh <em>3) Attitude Scale for Measuring Employee Attitude Towards Management Attitude Scale for Measuring Employee Attitude Towards Management </em>by Dr. K D Kapoor and a personal information sheet. Statistical tools of Pearson was applied to analyse the data.</p> <p>The results of the study confirmed that occupational stress significantly and negatively predicted attitude towards management of the employees. But, on the contrary for job anxiety the relationship with employee attitude was found to be insignificant. The attitude towards management of female employees was found to be more significantly and negatively related to job anxiety and occupational stress respectively as compared to their male counterparts. This result belied the expectations. However, no interaction effect was observed between job anxiety and occupational stress while predicting attitude towards management. It is recommended that IT companies must design general and gender based intervention strategies to reduce job anxiety and occupational stress among employees.</p> Kamal Karamchandani, Dr. V. K.

Researcher has worked upon feedbacks gathered from individuals of different age and their experience accumulated from their own school lives. Analyst got reactions from 140 participants. The information was gathered using Google forms and it was investigated utilizing Google's analytical tools. It was found that changing of school had both merits and demerits given that how one perceives it and adapts according to the changes. People have different reasons for changing their schools. Factors like new region, culture and language of new place also acts as deciding factors for the adaptability and performance of newly admitted student.</p> Ramandeep Singh, Mansi Chaudhary Copyright (c) 2020 International Journal of Engineering and Management Research https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 http://www.ijemr.net/ojs/index.php/ojs/article/view/478 Wed, 03 Jun 2020 00:00:00 +0530
