Financial Technology popularly referred to as “Fintech”, has been said to be a financial innovation facilitated by technology to change the way financial goods or services- like insurance, loans and investment are accessed by businesses and individuals. Fintech has introduced a new dimension into the Financial System of Nigeria, however there are very limited empirical studies into the relationship between Fintech and Financial development due to data limitations. Hence, this study seeks to employ variables that depicts Financial Inclusion and GDP growth using the World Bank Global Financial Development 4x2 framework, as indexes to assess “Nigerian financial development”. This will cover 2002 to 2013 being the pre-Fintech prominence era in comparison to period 2014 to 2021 as the Fintech prominence era. Fintech activities in Lending, Mobile Banking, Savings and Investment spaces will serve as a measure for impact in this study. Longitudinal quantitative time series data will be collected and checked for stati…
This dissertation examines Angola’s struggle between tradition and modernity through the lens of the country’s old open-air cinemas and new enclosed cinemas. Growing up in Luanda, Angola, most of my childhood memories are formed around cinemas. The movie-going experience has always involved multiple trips to the malls, in which modern cinemas are integrated.
At the bottom of my memory, are also the recollections of the lament of family members about the abandonment and degradation of the old independent cinemas scattered throughout the city, in each of these trips. Looking at old cinemas as a symbol of resistance and culture fascinates me, especially after hearing from family members who have had the opportunity to witness and live the unique experience of these open-air cinemas or cine-esplanadas, and the cultural practices that they made possible.
The lack of plans to restore and protect these unique cultural apparatus is well known , this sparked my interest in choosing Angolan Cinemas for my dissertati…

Introduction: Binge-drinking is harmful, but despite people's health concerns, intentions and behaviour are often conflicting. Message framing may remedy this, although research findings are inconsistent and the literature contains gaps. This study investigated message framing’s influence on binge-drinking using the Prototype Willingness Model (PWM). Method: Overall, 124 participants (M age = 36.1, range 18-80, SD = 17.8, 70% female; 56% non-students) conducted an online experiment. Past behaviour, social norms, attitudes, and prototype perceptions were assessed before participants were randomly allocated to a gain, loss, or combined message framed condition, concerning binge-drinking’s outcomes. Thereafter, intentions, willingness, and implicit attitudes were assessed. Results: More than three-quarters of participants binge-drank, drinking roughly three-to-four drinks on three-to-four days during a fortnight. Message-framing had no effect on intentions, willingness, and implicit attitudes towards binge-drink…
This poster presentation aims to answer the question, "Why is it important for nursing students to have a voice?" Despite the government's commitment to bringing 50,000 new registered nurses to the NHS by 2024 (NHS England, 2019), the annual rate of attrition from nursing courses has typically been around 24% (Nursing Standard, 2018). To understand why, the researcher surveyed 122 nursing students using four primary questions and conducted a thematic analysis to identify the key themes. The findings show that there are clear barriers to nursing students having a voice, including poor communication with the university and placement, lacking confidence to speak up, and fear of repercussions. However, having a voice is crucial as nursing students are the next generation of nurses and have a duty of care going into the profession. The findings also provide recommendations to improve the retention of a generation of student nurses, such as providing support, advocacy, active listening, passionate mentors, a studen…
