The correlation will give approximately the same answer as the logistic regression, but they are not equivalent tests. The correlation does give exactly the same p-value as an independent groups t-test, on the other hand. Try this example if you don't believe it.

Hello, first off all my question may be badly formulated since this is my first interaction with viscoelastic behavior, from what I understand the creep compliance is somehow the equivalent of the compliance matrix in elasticity except for the fact that it is depended on time ( and maybe temperature) because it takes into account the the viscous behavior of the material.
From what i understand, in order to "separate" the viscous behavior from elastic behavior we need to subject our samples to constant loads over a period of time, thus we obtain strain vs time graphs for different loads which helps us see if the material is linear viscoelastic or nonlinear by analyzing the isochronals.
Now back to my question, it appears to me that the simplest way to determine the creep compliance tensor components, do we use the data obtained from the constant loading tests I mentioned earlier, specifically the isochronals obtained for every moment to calculate the every particular component of creep compliance tensor at that moment, and then use some kind of mathematical fitting (power laws for example) to obtain the creep compliance as a function of time.
Please tell me if the method that I explained is the way to proceed or if it's just nonsense.

how to conceptualize monitoring and evaluation based on compliance to occupational health and safety.
Relevant answer
Answer
Hi Ritah,
The answer to this is rather simple to describe, but more complex to implement, particularly the collection of the data. A simple approach is to identify the critical behaviors that must be followed and build them into an observational checklist. If used with a number of employees, you could report percentage compliance for each behavior or overall. This approach could be modified by first determining the importance of each behavior (e.g., crucial, important, or recommended) and building this into the analysis. Since you are dealing with a finite number of employees, the analyses will be simple descriptive statistics such as frequency counts and proportions (or percentages). I hope this is helpful.

Hi all,
Please may I ask for some help clarifying what statistical test is most appropriate to use.
I am looking at the potential relationships / effects that conspiracy beliefs (both generic and specific) have on general compliance and covid compliance.
The questionnaires used were all likert scales, however, as per their instructions, they are all either summed or the mean is taken, therefore creating interval data.
Ass I have 2 IVs and 2 DVs, I am thinking of using a multivariate regression analysis. Is this correct?
Many thanks for your time.
Relevant answer
Answer
Hello Clare,
Yes, if evaluating models for both DVs simultaneously makes sense towards understanding what's going on (and is consistent with your research question/s), then multivariate regression may be used.
If you only care about what happens individually for each outcome (general, covid-specific), then evaluate the models independently.
Good luck with your work.

Hi! Trust this message meets you well. I am currently doing a research on the effect of tax amnesty on the tax compliance behavior of Nigerian taxpayers. As a result, I would require your help as you take some minutes to fill this online questionnaire. It is purely for research purpose and all information provided will be treated with utmost confidentiality. Please use the link below to proceed to the google form (use chrome preferably) Thank you for your time. https://forms.gle/J2kCRPXfsuzS4oReA
Relevant answer
Answer
With a tax amnesty scheme, taxpayers are given an opportunity to regularise their tax affairs with relevant tax authorities, by self-declaring previously unpaid/underpaid taxes. .Nigeria does not have a dedicated Amnesty programme. However, the Federal Government of Nigeria recognises the impact of Amnesty.
Moreover, amnesty is legal forgiveness from certain infractions. Tax amnesty therefore constitutes a form of waiver or reduction, removal of penalties in back taxes to encourage defaulters. Inspite of the National Tax Policy, amending the tax laws and strengthening of the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) for enhanced operational efficiency, no real consideration has been given to measures or strategies that may encourage voluntary declaration and compliance as an alternative means of growing the nation's tax base.
Nigeria launched a tax amnesty scheme in June 2017. Designed to last for nine months, the Voluntary Assets and Income Declaration Scheme (Vaids) was subsequently extended to 12 months, and sought to encourage the voluntary disclosure of previously undisclosed assets and income for all outstanding tax liabilities.
The primary aim of Vaids was to widen the tax net, thus raising much needed tax revenue now and in the future. Disappointingly, though, the revenue collected fell far short of the US$1bn target. Liabilities of only US$268.3m were declared, and payments received amounted to just US$103.3m, leaving US$165m outstanding.
In October 2018, Nigeria introduced another tax amnesty – the Voluntary Offshore Assets Regularization Scheme (Voars) – for a 12-month period. The main purpose is to give taxpayers with offshore assets the opportunity to declare them for tax purposes regardless of the legitimacy of the source. The scheme is still ongoing, so it is not possible to assess performance against expectation.
Consequently, there are a lot of challenges that post threat to Tax Amnesty in Nigeria. Here are :
1. Implementation challenges
2. Low tax morale
3. No credible threat of post - Amnesty crackdown
4. Tone from the top .

I am studying about Impact load resistance property of Polyurea (Elastomer). With respect to this, I need to conduct tests on this material to evaluate its material model behavior as a hyperelastic material model and Viscoelastic material model. These material models are to be used in an FEA analysis to understand its impact resistance properties. I have researched some data mentioned below about the procedure to determine the viscoelastic properties and hyperelastic properties of an elastomer material.
Kindly review it and provide your valuable comments to improve it against discrepancies incurred by me.
Mechanical tests to be conducted for Hyper-Elastic model
1. Uniaxial Test  (ASTM D 412/ ISO 37)                        -       stress/ strain curve or table as output
2. Biaxial Test (ASTM D 6856 / ISO 16842:2014)        -      stress/ strain curve or table as output
3. Planar Test (                                                                   -      stress/ strain curve or table as output
4. Bulk Modulus Test (ASTM D 575 / ISO 7743)          -      pressure/ volume ration curve or table as output
Mechanical tests to be conducted for Visco-Elastic model
5. Creep test ( Shear, Volumetric and Combined )  (ISO 8013)            -        constant load/stress will be applied as input and  strain/ time curve  will be taken as output   
6. Relaxation Test (Shear, Volumetric and Combined) (ISO 3384)     -         constant deflection/strain will be applied as input and stress/time curve will be taken as the output
Test data derived from test no 1 to 4 shall be used to calculate Mooney-Rivlin hyperelastic material model parameters.
Test data derived from 5 & 6 will be used to calculate the following mechanical properties
a. long term normalized shear compliance or modulus
b. long term normalized volumetric compliance or modulus
c. normalized shear compliance or shear relaxation modulus vs. time
d. normalized volumetric compliance or volumetric  relaxation modulus vs. time
The data mentioned from points a to d are needed to derive the Prony series constant for the viscous elastic material model mentioned below:
1. Shear relaxation modulus ratio
2. Bulk relaxation modulus ratio  
3. Relaxation time
I have gone through ASTM/ ISO codes mentioned superficially but didn’t understand a few topics for some codes. I need your valuable guidance regarding the following points.
1. specimen preparation (Dimension and Shape)
2. Testing procedure. (Constant Load & Deflection required  in test no 5 & 6)
3. Determination of properties mentioned in points (a to d) from test data output received from test no 5 & 6.

I would like to anticipate the idea why research activities in the academe is not usually adapted or been used by third parties in behalf of its purpose: I mean the purpose of their research. Consequently, college and post graduate schools require thesis products for graduation requirement intents, but, the idea is just for the compliance purpose of the course program; and what about being endorsed to important third parties such as government institutions as to be used as basis for policy making. I see the lapses in that point and that it is ironic that some educational institutions are better and very hard working dealing on their research activities and publications and yet their studies are minimally recognized by their government for policy making and protocols, in which, in this way, the idea or the effort of scholars doing such ingenuity will be usable as it get beneficiaries in hand. Studying is not that easy, why not support or maybe the university or educational institution must endorse their research products to nearby jurisdictional policy makers for the better and best of the community in nearby future. I am just wondering why that research products are treated that way not on the exact way that studies and experiment of these experts must be commended for being excellent in such field they had chosen as proven by the research studies they have done. Is it because it lacks support from their respective government? Is it because their government does not appreciate the efforts of their research scholars and enthusiasts? Or maybe, Do these research products are not totally important in the political maneuvers of their place?

Hello,
we are conducting cytotoxicity tests since over an year and aren't able to get a stable test. We are no in the validation phase but there are some effects we can't explain. Here is an overview how we conduct the test in compliance with DIN EN ISO 10993-5:
- Seeding 1 x 10^4 cells in a 96-well plate (except the outer wells) --> incubate for 24 h
- Adding medical device extracts (100%, 50%, 10%, 1%) and controls:
- positive control: 1% Triton X (P)
- negative control: cell media (N)
- blank (B): media that was shaken with cell culture media for 24 h at 37 °C in the same kind of container like the medical device was shaken (in compliance with DIN EN ISO 10993-12)
- Incubation for 24 h
- Discard the media and add 50 µl MTT solution (10 mg/ml) --> incubate for 2 h
- Discard and add 100 µl Isopropanol --> incubate for 30 min
- Read out with microplate reader
See the pictures below...the cells are all the time okay until extracts and controlls are added...So something must happen at this point. Sometimes the negative control dies randomly. Sometimes the blank dies. Sometimes only one extract dilution which makes no sense. Does anyone have an idea?
Many thanks!
Relevant answer
Answer
I have had enough failures in doing cytotoxicity and viability assays to be able to share some insights.
1. I don't know your cell line but if the cells are average sized and multiply properly, I would start by seeding a lower cell density around 1-2k cells per well. Lower cells density allows us to see a better resolution of effect by the agent/ controls on cell survival/viability/proliferation.
2. The most common but less discussed issue is changing media. Everyone you change media due to pipetting a large chunk of cells may be pipetted out. Resulting in negative results in one of the agents or positive controls. Many a times when cell density is very high a large chunk of cells gets uprooted out easily. So without touching the bottom the pipette needs to be touching the edge to gently remove media. This should be practiced throughout all media changes.
3. Another alternative is to avoid change of media as much as possible. One way is to directly put the MTT in the media. Although media has a colour due to phenol red it may affect reading but the media is present in all wells so it should not be an issue. Although some people use a media without phenol red to avoid this issue.
Hope this helps.

In my opinion, the first priority is educating the masses about conventional banking products in comparison with Islamic banking (Shariah-compliant) products, clearing their doubts and wrong perceptions (of back end procedures and mechanisms stay the same and its only change of name of a particular product)
2.Gain support from government and regulatory authorities
3. Develop innovative, competitive and customer-friendly products supporting high penetration and financial inclusion. (an investment or banking product that is understandable to a layman, different and better from conventional counterparts
4. Make of the technology (trends in Blockchain & cryptography)
5. Compliance with Local and International Standards

Relevant answer
Answer
To answer your question, yes, the compliance and the adherence is affected by the cost of the pharmacotherapy.
It's just the anecdotal evidence, but during my 6-month-long traineeship in the local community pharmacy I've seen several situations, when patients resigned from medicines or just bought only part of the pharmacotherapy due to the cost. As Fedaa Kamaleldeen said, the magnitude of this phenomenon depends on many factors, mainly on economical situation and the costs oft the medicines.
But I don't think it occurs only in the third world countries. I will try to find some stats about it : )

An important step towards more compliance in companies was taken: Directive (EU) 2019/1937 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 23 October 2019 on the protection of persons who report breaches of Union law (the so-called Whistleblower Directive) was published in the EU Official Journal of 26 November 2019. The directive now introduces an EU-wide minimum standard for the protection of whistleblowers. Under the new rules, companies with more than 50 employees will be required to set up secure channels for reporting breaches. The scope of the Directive is limited to reporting violations of EU law. Member States may, however, go beyond the minimum standard when transposing the Directive so that the national legislator has the possibility to extend the scope to breaches of national law. How do you assess the situation in your country? Will the possibility of extending it to national law be used?
Relevant answer
Answer
That's good and up-to-date Directive for the EU. However, not many countries will go beyond the minimum, primarily the EU-15 member states will do. Agree with Maryam.

Relevant answer
Answer
- first of all, this hypothesis you propose can only hold true in islamic country where there are more shariah banks than conventional banks. Therefore, your question.
- Market share is determined by bank size, loan to asset ratio, innovation, competition and strategy among banks.
- Even "regulatory compliance" itself is not a determinant of market share, therefore, i dont see how a case could be made for shariah compliance as a determinant of market share. What economic argument do you suggest could support your hypothesis?

Like Christopher C Kelly I like auditing and its part of my current role but it can be ineffective. For instance, the auditee's are generally aware that you are going to audit them and what you are going to audit so they prepare to be audited and prepare to pass the audit. However an audit is suppose to be a snap shot in time, they are always suppose to be complying not just proving they are for the sake of the audit.

Relevant answer
Answer
I've got a keen interest in auditing from a manufacturing perspective. I am also an internal auditor.
If you like to discuss in detail please PM me.
My insight in to internal audit strategy - From an internal auditing perspective, a lot of auditors give the area notice of the audit. The reason for this from an internal auditors point of view is so that the auditor can understand what he needs to audit and plan for it. However, this also give the auditee's a chance to prepare for the audit. This in a way, is not a true depiction of the area being audited.
However, giving them a chance to prepare at least makes them evaluate themselves and look to become compliant. Its an interesting thing to consider. Do you turn up unannounced and audit them, or do you inform them of the audit, giving them a chance to prepare and what benefit does this provide in the long term, or is it just a short term fix.

We can say without a doubt that CPAP improves not only a sleep apneic patient‘s sleep quality — but also can improve brain perfusion by oxygen - during sleep.
So why do so many predominantly males diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) refuse such easily aable and relatively cheap therapy, when offered a CPAP machine?
Why does sleeping with a CPAP carry with it such a negative connotation? Is it really about discomfort? Because many OSA patients will swear by their CPAP machine and won’t travel far without it, once they get used to it...
Does anyone have any statistics regarding reasons to refuse CPAP therapy? Anecdotal evidence? I would be interested to hear.
Relevant answer
Answer
There certainly is the issue of discomfort; some individuals have much trouble with the trigeminal stimulation induced by the mask, the airway dryness issues, unaesthetic appearance. and the inconvenience of lugging around a device to hotels. However, the real concern for us in the sleep field is that CPAP does little to manage the cardiovascular issues induced by OSA, as outlined in a recent NEJM article. The management is not totally ineffective, but the benefits are minimal. In severe cases of disordered breathing, use of CPAP will support respiration, but the failing blood pressure control results in headaches and following-day feelings of deprivation. We have a task ahead of us to resolve this issue.

Often times, a pure metal is described as isotropic because the mechanical properties do not vary with direction. However, I recently learned that Young's modulus changes with direction according to the equation attached. Sxx is compliance and l,m,n are the direction cosines.
So then are any materials truly isotropic, or is that an assumption we tend to make
Relevant answer
Answer
The known factor K (combination of three elastic stiffness parameters, see elsewhere) should equal UNITY in case of ideal isotropy, whereas most metals have this exceeding TWO and even more. Nonetheless, there are good exclusions:
W has K=1 within about 0.01 errors, Al and Mo have 0.8 and 1.2, respectively, or vice versa (check please).

Hi:
All I know is that if you go into more depth from Hooke's law into plane stress or plane strain conditions, the inverse of the material stiffness matrix is the material compliance!
However, what is fracture compliance? How is it different than just the regular compliance of materials?
Thank you very much,
Mousumi Ghosh
Relevant answer
Answer
Fracture compliance is basically a reciprocal of Fracture stiffness.
Fracture stiffness is the ratio of the increment of stress to the increment of displacement caused by the deformation of the void space in the fracture.
Reference : Pyrak-Nolte LJ, Morris JP. Single fractures under normal stress: The relation between fracture specific stiffness and fluid flow. International Journal of Rock Mechanics and Mining Sciences. 2000 Jan 1;37(1-2):245-62.

I am a registered nurse. In GP/community/non-acute hospital settings, we often advise patients to take oral antibiotics e.g. Augmentin 3 times a day at convenient times to promote compliance (usually take them during breakfast, lunch and dinner). Having said this, it would mean there is a big gap during the night time. How does this effect on the antibiotic's steady state and serum therapeutic level?
As for intravenous antibiotics, timing is very crucial; however, there are times that when you get 5-6 patients, it can not be given on time. What is your recommendation in terms of timing? I seriously believe that the 30-minute rule is just fine. If you can't give it really on time, giving it 30 minutes before and after is acceptable, but one-hour-window is way too early or too long and is such a risk for losing the minimum inhibitory concentration.
What are your thoughts?
Relevant answer
Answer
I would advise my patients to administer their oral antibiotic doses based on clock, which means taking their doses every 6 or 8 hours according to the regimen. This is the best way to keep serum level constant. It is the same way how IV works. But in acute disease states i can accept up to 1- hour deviation from normal regimen, this wouldn't affect much MIC. I guess advice should be focused on drug-food interactions which might affect serum level greatly.

Hello
I would like to measure electrical conductivity (resistivity) of electrospun fibermat of a polymer.
I know that:
Knowing the thickness of the fibermat, one should be able to apply it in the conventional test. Through this measurement, one can calculate conductivity through a correction factor by measuring the voltage and knowing the current applied.
The problem is:
Even when the lowest current value (2 nA) is applied, the instrument does not show enough stability of the current flow, and no voltage reading will be obtained.
What should I do?
I think the 4-point probe method is supposed to apply to semiconductor and non-conductor materials as well.
Does changing compliance help?
I am using one Keithley instrument as my current source and another one to read the voltage.
I would be grateful to have helpful comments.
Relevant answer
Answer
You mention compliance - is this light flashing on the keithley current source? If so it means it can't supply the current you select with the given voltage compliance. On a Keithley, the compliance setting is a safety to limit the maximum voltage it will go to, to drive the current. For sure if it is flashing (depends on keithley model how it tells you), i.e. you are out of compliance then you don't have the 2nA as it can't supply the voltage required to get there. You can increase this compliance voltage to the max your device / safety can allow and then try.

Is there a need to evaluate the structure of small-scale producers? Are they using the proper arrangements (Rules) to exploit all the advantages and overcome the competition? Have anybody done research looking at the governance and managerial structure of these organisations?
Can/should they change their structure to perform better?
Relevant answer
Answer
It depends on the nature of the actors who hold the specific assets in the business and who are assets necessary for investment and value creation. creating value and avoiding blocking the process of its creation depends on the motivation of the stakeholders who own the specific assets. Their motivation is realized when they receive a share of the created value that exactly compensates their contribution.
If the company operates in a highly competitive market, where innovation is important and the source of innovation is human capital, then the owners of specific assets are engineers, decision-makers, employees and possibly suppliers, including the consultants. If the company operates in a competitive market where only economies of scale and size increase are essential and where financing is scarce, risky and with little scope for diversification, then the owners of financial capital are the The most influential stakeholders and their motivation would create value.
I think you will use a set of theories and not one, which is known as triangulation.
Before choosing theories, I think that analyzes like competitive forces are needed to determine the characteristics of the environment in which the business operates.
These analyzes will determine the competitive dynamics and sources of competitive advantage.
The sources of competitive advantage are resources and skills. Their specificity is analyzed by the theory of resources. This will determine the assets that verify the conditions (such as those of the VRIST filter) to be considered specific.
Stakeholder theory makes it possible to know the stakeholders of the company, given the assets they possess and their specificity. It also makes it possible to know the order of influence of the stakeholders in the creation of value and it is possible to supplement the contributions of this theory by the theory of the dependence of the resources.
At the level of corporate governance stakeholder engagement in value creation is achieved through incentive compensation and participation in decision making. The positive theory of the agency allows to know forms of remuneration to better share the value created according to the contribution of the stakeholders. It also allows to know the access rights to the board of directors so that each stakeholder is represented by as many directors according to its contribution to the creation of value. Access to the board of directors is also studied by the theory of transaction costs.
So you have, in my modest opinion, a mixed frame of reference consisting of propositions from the following theories: agency, transaction costs, stakeholders, resource dependence and resources and skills. Your challenge will be to bring them together in one frame, although there are oppositions between their basic assumptions, according to Lakatos.

As 'compliance' is something positive, shouldn't it be maximized instead of minimize?
Relevant answer
Answer
Hello,
In mechanics, "compliance" roughly stands for the inverse of "stiffness". To improve the structural integrity you may often want to minimize the strains in the structure which means minimizing the compliance or maximizing the stiffness. For some other applications, such as in designing morphing structures, you may want to increase compliance at certain regions. Therefore it is not really correct to regard "compliance" something negative or positive as it might be desirable or undesirable depending on the aim.
