A Survey of Clustering Schemes for Mobile Ad-Hoc Network (MANET)
Ismail Ghazi Shayeb Albalqa Applied Univesity, Amman, Jordan E-mail: AbdelRahman Hamza Hussein Jearsh University, Jearsh, Jordan E-mail: Ayman Bassam Nasoura Jearsh University, Jearsh, Jordan E-mail: Abstract Clustering has been found to be an effective means of resource management for MANETs regarding network performance, routing protocol design, Quality of Service (QoS) and network modeling though it has yet to be refined to satisfy all the issues that might be faced by choosing this approach. Scalability is of particular interest to ad hoc network designers and users and is an issue with critical influence on capability and capacity. Where topologies include large numbers of nodes, routing packets will demand a large percentage of the limited wireless bandwidth and this is exaggerated and exacerbated by the mobility feature often resulting in a high frequency of failure regarding wireless links. In this paper we present acomprehensive survey and classification of recently published clustering algorithm, which we classify based on their objectives. We survey different clustering algoirthm for MANET's; highlighting the defining clustering, the design goals of clustering algorithms, advantages of clustering for ad hoc networks, challenges facing clustering including cost issues and classifying clustering algorithms as well as discussion on the objectives and features of various clustering schemes presented in a comprehensive survey of the related literature.

Corruption Schemes

...Corruption Schemes Anaesha M. Whitaker Corruption Schemes What is corruption? The most common definition of corruption in the economic literature is literature is the misuse of public office for private gain. While private gain is typically interpreted in terms of monetary benefit, it can potentially include non-monetary benefits such as improved chances of re-election and helping friends or members of their social or ethnic networks obtain public resources. The usual interpretation of misuse is the use of office for illegal purposes, impairment of integrity, virtue, or moral principle, inducement to wrong or improper or unlawful means, but it is occasionally construed more broadly as the mis-allocation of public resources in ways that enhance the official's private returns. Recent years have also seen an explosion of empirical research on corruption measurement.

Ponzi Scheme

...Ponzi Scheme Keller Graduate School Forensics Accounting The Bernie Madoff scam truly made history. Bernie Madoff probably would not have been able to prolong this scam without the continued help of the Accounting Firm of Friehling & Horowitz CPAs PC, who at last reported purported to audit financial statements and disclosures of Madoff firm for the last 17 years. Ponzi schemed to help Madoff by trying to go undetected because of Friehling deceiving investors and regulators by declaring that Madoff enterprise had clean audit records. Ponzi’s scheme enabled Madoff by falsely stating in annual audit reports that F & H audited Madoff financial statements pursuant to GAAP, including the requirements to maintain auditor independence and perform audit procedures regarding custody of securities. F & H purported that the financial statements conformed to GAAP and the Friehling reviewed internal controls at Madoff firm. According to SEC complaint, Friehling knew that the firm regularly distributed the annual audit reports to Madoff customers, and that reports were filed with the SEC and other regulators. The complaint alleges these statements were “materially false”. The SEC alleges that Friehling merely pretended to conduct minimal audit procedures of certain accounts to make it appear that he was conducting an audit, and then failed to document his purported findings and conclusions as required under the GAAP. If properly stated those financial......

...PYRAMID SCHEMES: Saving the network marketing industry by defining the gray by Kevin Thompson copyright of Advanced Advocates, LLC. I. INTRODUCTION In these trying economic times, responsible network marketing companies are positioned to offer viable opportunities for people that desperately need them. They combine passion for products with individual ambition to create a powerful testimony to the unyielding principles of free enterprise. With a fair compensation plan, an exciting product, and proper education, independent agents across the globe (also referred to as distributors) can leverage the power of networking to dramatically change their financial circumstances. Network marketing companies are responsible for providing its distributors with marketable products and compensation plans that rewards and motivates the sales force. Ideally, the rewards are designed to be commensurate with the work performed. With a good product and a fair compensation plan, !! the average person is given an opportunity to completely redefine their finances while operating a home based business. Distributors earn income primarily in two ways. First, they can purchase products at wholesale and mark them up for retail sales, thus earning an immediate profit. Secondly, they can form a “downline” by recruiting additional distributors and earn commissions on their sales to customers and purchases for personal use. Since distributors are......

Ponzi Scheme

...large scheme that if exploited correctly could allow him to acquire large amounts of money. However, Ponzi did not keep up with the International Postal Reply Coupons and instead had thousands of new investors paying him money which he then gave to old investors. Eventually, Ponzi's scheme was discovered and the entire entity collapsed, but not before making Ponzi famous enough to have the type of scheme named after him. His level of fame matched the amount for which his investors lost, about 20 million, or 225 million in today's dollar value. What is a Ponzi Scheme? A ponzi scheme is when a person swindles large amounts of cash from "investors" by promising high returns on their original investment. The scheme goes that a single person gets multiple people to give him/her money that they will in turn "invest" into something. The investees are never told what it is they invested in, just that they will get more money back this way then if they put the money in a bank. Within the allotted time the schemer brings them back their money and the profit they gained. The investees are so happy they in turn tell their friends and family who then invest with the schemer. The schemer takes this new money and gives it to the original investees. The scheme can only last as long as there are new investors, once the incoming money runs out the scheme collapses and only the original investors and the schemer are left with any profit. In the case of the Charles Ponzi's original......

Pension Scheme in Ghana

... Laws Governing the National pension scheme in Ghana The National Pensions Act 2008 is the prevailing law governing the pension scheme in Ghana. This law was passed to provide for pension reform to replace the then cap 30 and SSNIT law (Social Security and National insurance trust Law) which used to be the Law governing the pension scheme. The National Pensions Act, 2008 was to introduce a contributory new three-tier pension scheme. The Act state that the first tier provides a mandatory basic national social security scheme, a mandatory fully-funded and privately managed Provident fund and personal pension scheme as the second tier and a voluntary fully funded and privately managed provident fund and personal pension scheme. The first tier is managed by The Social Security and National Insurance Trust, the second and third tier is privately managed by approved trustees appointed by the Pensions Regulatory Authority with the assistance of Pensions Fund managers and custodians registered by the Authority. The second tier is an occupational pension scheme aimed at giving contributors higher lump sum benefits than the then SSNIT OR CAP 30 PENSIONS SCHEME. The third tier, apart from being voluntary provident fund and personal pension schemes is supported by tax benefit incentives to provide additional funds for workers who want to voluntary contributions to enhance pension benefits as well as workers who are not in the formal sector. It is not mandatory. Section 5 article 1...

Geography- Water Management Schemes

...Water management schemes and how it helps to improve people’s quality of life Water management schemes are all the schemes in general that provides water to people, for example; water transfer schemes are one of the many water management schemes, water transfer schemes are projects that collect water from areas that have a higher rainfall and divert it to areas that have a greater need and a higher demand for water. Water is collected and stored in reservoirs for further use. Another example of water management schemes is sanitation systems which are in order for those who do not have access to appropriate sanitation. Overall, the water management scheme is a scheme that ensures that everybody has access to clean water and sanitation. Water is one of the most important natural resources which are essential for ALL living things. Water is used for drinking, washing, cooking and irrigation. There is only 3% of pure water in the world, that we can drink, 2% of that water is stored in icebergs, if the demand for water continues to increase at rapid rates; the access to water will become more difficult. Figure 1 In figure 1, the more successful countries which are MEDC’s and the more urbanised areas such as the USA, Canada Australia, Italy and France show that the more water they use per capita. They have the access to clean water, so they tend to take advantage of it and waste more, whereas the countries that have little access to clean water tend to......

Ponzi Scheme

...CASE: ‘Ponzi schemes’ ‘Ponzi schemes’ are scams in which investors are promised exaggerated profits (often short-term) from supposedly can’t-miss investments. If and when early investors are paid returns, the money doesn’t come from actual investment gains; it comes from new cash pouring in from later investors.   Initially the promoter will pay out high returns to attract more investors, and to lure current investors into putting in additional money. Other investors begin to participate, leading to a cascade effect. The "return" to the initial investors is paid out of the investments of new entrants, and not out of profits. Often the high returns lead investors to leave their money in the scheme, leading the promoter not to have to pay out very much to investors; they simply have to send statements to investors showing them how much they earned. This maintains the deception that the scheme is a fund with high returns.  Ponzi scammers promise windfall returns, counting on their victims to be either gullible or greedy—and sometimes both. The appeal of quick and hefty profits is precisely why some people fall for Ponzi schemes, even though they clearly fall into the category of too good to be true. Charles Ponzi, an Italian immigrant living in Boston in the early 20th century, was a master at playing the gullibility-greed game. He was clever, yes, but more than that, he was charming and charismatic, easily convincing people to jump aboard his pie-in-the-sky schemes. He......

Wardha Scheme

...WARDHA SCHEME OF EDUCATION The Wardha scheme of Education, popularly known as ‘Basic education’ occupies a unique place in the field of elementary education in India. This scheme was the first attempt to develop an indigenous scheme of education in British India by Mahatma Gandhi, the father of our nation. As a nationalist leader he fully realised that the British system of education could not serve the socio-economic need of the country. At Round Table Conference in London (1931) he pointed out the ineffectiveness of the system of primary education in India and the alarming low percentage of literacy among Indian people. He held the policy of the British Government responsible for this painful situation in the field of mass education. Gandhiji said “I am convinced that the present system of education is not only wasteful but positively harmful.” It was in this context the concept of Basic Education emerged in the mind of Gandhiji. In this unit we will discuss the historical background, the Wardha scheme of education, its fundamental features, curriculum and merits and demerits of this system of education. The word ‘Basic’ is derived from the word ‘base’ which means the bottom or the foundation of a thing upon which the whole thing rests or is made o stand Mahatma Gandhi wanted to make the foundation of the educational edifice strong. It is with this objective that he put forward this scheme. This scheme of education is based on the national culture and civilisation of......

...Fraud Schemes and Fraud Investigation Acc 571 Instructor: Dr. Ole Ruankaew Diane Phillips November 22, 2015 Fraud Schemes and Fraud Investigations The problem that organization faces today, are employee fraud. Many organizations feel that long term success of any company comes from the quality of their employees and workers loyalty. While during my research, I discovery that Association of Certified Fraud Examiners, Inc. has shown that organization have lost five percent of their annual revenue each year because of employee fraud. Every organization needs to have a plan in places for fraud detention. In preventing fraud in the work place, a good strategy for any organization is to implement internal control. These are plans; programs and procedures put in place to safe guard the company assets, and ensure the integrity of its accounting records. As prevention fraud is much easier than recovering losses after a fraud has been committed. This study will focus on the case of Stanford Financial Group Company fraud in which Robert Allen Stanford, chairman of Stanford International Bank (SIB), was involved in a Ponzi scheme. Stanford was convicted of orchestrating a 20-year investment fraud scheme in which he misappropriated $7 billion form SIB to finance his personal businesses. The Stanford Financial Group claimed to have pulled in retail, wealthy and commercial investors from 136 countries on six continents. Lopez and Kuhrt was aware of what Stanford ...

Ponzi Scheme

...Franzee Barlamas Ponzi Scheme Assignment Advanced Fraud Accounting March 30, 2016 1. According to the Securities and Exchange Commission a Ponzi scheme is “an investment fraud that involves the payment of purported returns to existing investors from funds contributed by new investors.” The scheme got its name from Charles Ponzi who created the first ever Ponzi scheme in the 1920s. Ponzi manipulated thousands of New England residents into investing in postage stamps for a return of 50% in just 90 days. His guaranteed return of 50% was compared to the bank’s return at the time being only 5%. The New England citizens should have saw that as an immediate red flag and a too good to be true investment opportunity. 2. I do believe that this situation was a Ponzi scheme. It definitely fits the definition that I quoted in question one. In order to have any type of Ponzi scheme you need to have new investors. Over the course of 1996 and 1997, Wilson Energy Resources attained over 33 new investors. This quote from receiver Lane says exactly why it was a Ponzi scheme, “By making distributions to investors, the impression was created that many wells were profitable when, as a result of the expenses for reworking and maintaining the wells, there were no profits.” In a way this Ponzi scheme was like Bernie Madoff’s scheme. Both Madoff and Wilson were paying investors profits that they did not have, both parties promised investors returns that were not logical, both...

Ponzi Scheme

...A “Ponzi Scheme” is an investment fraud that involves the payment of alleged returns to existing investors from funds contributed by new investors. Ponzi scheme organizers often seek new investors by showing potential in their company; they entice investors to invest funds in opportunities claimed to generate high returns with little or no risk. In many Ponzi schemes, the fraudsters focus on attracting new money to make promised payments to earlier-stage investors and to use for personal expenses, instead of engaging in any legal investment activity. The system is destined to collapse because the earnings are less than the payments to investors. Ponzi schemes tend to collapse when it becomes difficult to recruit new investors or when a large number of investors ask to cash out. As more investors become involved, the likelihood of the scheme coming to the attention of authorities increases. The system eventually will collapse under its own weight. The scheme is named for Charles Ponzi, who became well known for his illegal techniques for using the Ponzi method in early 1920. He had emigrated from Italy to the United States in 1903. His operation took in so much money that it was the first to become known throughout the United States. His original scheme was in theory based on arbitraging international reply coupons for postage stamps, but soon diverted investors' money to support payments to earlier investors and Ponzi's personal wealth. At that time when the annual......

Pyramid Scheme

...Pyramid schemes in albania essay 1- Introduction At the beginning of the year's 1990th, with the falling of the communism, many Albanians people went through the foreign embassy to left Albania and go abroad for a better life. They started to create a real income. In this time we have some mountebanks in the market which created the pyramid schemes and offered high interest rate. People invested in this scheme their savings. According to the data of the different official institutions, the number of the Albanian which invested in schemes is increased time after time. Deposits of these schemes take e big part of the GDP. This means that they have had an important role in our economy. Through this paper we want to give a general overview of phenomena of pyramid schemes and collapse that they afflicted. We will analyze the rise and favorite factors that encased prosperity of these companies for a long time and the way how they operated. Another point in our paper shows the impact and bankrupt causes that brought the fail of pyramid schemes. The last point shows the role of the institution that answered for minimization of crises effect. In our paper all the results will be accompanied with dates from different years. In the first chapter we will handle phenomena of schemes by focusing in three important cases a) we will give a short description for origin of schemes and the biggest schemes, b) in another case we are going to analyze the factor that took born of pyramid. c)......

Ponzi Scheme

...Ponzi Scheme Corporate Finance A Ponzi scheme is an illegal business practice in which new investor’s money is used to make payments to earlier investors. In many Ponzi schemes, the fraudsters focus on attracting new money to make promised payments to earlier-stage investors and to use for personal expenses, instead of engaging in any legitimate investment activity. The returns are repaid out of new investors’ principal, but not from profits. This can continue as long as new investors line up with cash, and old investors don’t try to withdraw too much of their money at once. Ponzi scheme is named after Charles Ponzi, known as the Father of the Ponzi scheme and the infamous swindler, who paid out returns with other investors' money. Charles Ponzi was born in 1882 in Parma, Italy. Ponzi marked what would become known as the Ponzi scheme in December 1919. An alliance of international postal services had begun selling postal reply coupons after World War I ended. Each coupon was good for one stamp in the affiliated countries. This allowed the mail services to continue operations smoothly despite the instability of most European currencies at the time. That’s when Ponzi established the Securities Exchange Company, a one-man operation that offered coupons reflecting a supposed investment in international reply coupons (IRCs). IRCs are legitimately sold in the postal facilities in many nations, intended to be enclosed with international correspondence and redeemed for......
