Despite various exchange rate policies and other economic measures put in place by successive governments to enhance the growth of manufacturing sector in Nigeria, yet government is unable to achieve the desired result in term of growth. The study therefore examined the relationship between capital markets and manufacturing output in Nigeria.  Specifically, the study set out to analyse the long run relationship between capital markets and manufacturing output in Nigeria. The study covers the period between 1986 and 2020 utilizing data sourced from Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) statistical bulletins and National Bureau of Statistics. ARDL Co-integration analysis and Error Correction model were employed to capture the stated objectives. The results showed that there is long run insignificant positive impact of market capitalisation (LNMCP), Total New Issues (LNTNI), Total Listed Securities (LNTLS), Exchange Rate (LNEXR), and Inflation Rate (LNINF) on manufacturing output (LNMANO). This implies that a unit increase in MCP, TNI, TLS, EXR, and INF will lead to 1.382584, 0.009264, 0.011217, 0.636583, and 1.029149, respective increases in Manufacturing Output (LNMANO) while there is insignificant negative impact of inflation rate (LNINF) and Value of transaction(VRT) on manufacturing output (LNMANO). Based on these findings, government should create enabling environment through provision of basic infrastructures, service and policy reforms that can enable Nigerian capital markets to mobilize financial resources effectively and efficiently

Author Details: Victorino B. Almario¹Associate Professor V, Research and Extension Focal Camarines Sur Institute of Fisheries and Marine Sciences- Philippines 

The study aims to develop the production information and control system of Bicol Block Precast Contractors considering monitoring the flow need for material plan to meet both the requirements of the master schedule and the capabilities of the production facility, to have an effective “time phased” deliveries, consignments and constant review of methods and maintenance of record integrity. All of these needs require application of material requirements planning in order to provide a system that will facilitate their production system. This system provides computer-based information system through the use of Microsoft Excel for ordering, scheduling, and managing dependent demand inventory requirements for wall panels produced by BBC Precast Contractor that can help them in reducing inventory and shortages through timely acquisitions and production of material. They can also improve customer service levels with an increase in on-time deliveries and direct labor productivity and provide them with accurate and timely information. MRP can provide full visibility of latest material requirements linked directly to production plan and served as a single planning process with all the information required to make informed planning decisions and also clears warnings of potential problems and affected orders directly on the plan when material availability changes.

It has been retained that the teaching- learning process often gives pride of place to the subject matter and method. Parker Jay Palmer holds that this approach to education conceals the place of the teacher in the educational transaction. In this light, Palmer observes that we tend to forget the invaluable role of the teacher on who so much depends. This paper set out to argue that debates in education has to cherish and challenge the human heart that is the source of good teaching. For Palmer, good teaching comes from the identity and integrity of the teacher. The main question this paper seeks to answer is, how does the identity and integrity (personality) of the teacher contribute to effective teaching and learning? How can the re-establishment of the teacher’s authority restore order and discipline within the school milieu? While Palmer thinks the complementarity of identity and integrity plays a key role in learning, Nel Noddings holds that the care shown to the students is key. Our central argument here is that identity, integrity and care are limited as sole determinants of effective teaching and learning. This limitation can be complimented by educarity which should be understood as envisioning oneself as part of a ring of love in which each individual self has worth in-itself and also as he/she relates to every other self.
Key words: Care, Identity, integrity, Teaching, Love, Curriculum, method, Teaching, and learning, Caritas, educarity, Educathority.
